Cold, etc.; it's the end of December, so not exactly a surprise

Neither, I hope is the new data dump

Translated from socialist speech, “right-wing, white supremacist media outlets and internet mobs”

means "People actually told other people what I said!  Those bastards!"

And this is how idiots like this are responded to when you actually want results:
The university’s provost reportedly wrote to Ciccariello-Maher that "at least two potential significant donors to the university have withheld previously promised donations” while a number of prospective students reversed their decisions to attend Drexel.
Translation: "You're costing us money!  It has to stop!"  I'd bet a lot of the university brass approved of his crap, but when it hits their bottom line...

A: Because 'Non-Uniform Person With Gun!' is what they consider 'news'.
B: Can you imagine an Obama appointee doing this?  He'd just expect some peasant to protect him if there's trouble.

Crap like this has got to stop. And the officer who fired, at the least, (updated)

needs to be looking for a job outside law enforcement.

Asshole, mad about argument, makes fake 'Murder! Hostages!' call to cops.  Cops show up at house.
Officers went to the 1000 block of McCormick, preparing for a hostage situation and they “got into position,” he said.

“A male came to the front door,” Livingston said. “As he came to the front door, one of our officers discharged his weapon.”

Livingston didn’t say if the man, who was 28, had a weapon when he came to the door, or what caused the officer to shoot the man. Police don’t think the man fired at officers, but the incident is still under investigation, he said. The man, who has not been identified by police, died at a local hospital.
If they'd found a weapon, they'd damn well be saying so.  If he'd fired, they'd damn well say so.  From what we know, dumbass fired as soon as this guy answered the door, because... incompetent?  Panicky?  Stupid?  So now an innocent is dead, the department looks like idiots,

The asshole who made the call?  Prosecute him for the heaviest charges possible: he took an action he KNEW could get someone killed, and he needs to pay for it.

Update: they caught the piece of shit responsible for the call.  And have set the defense for the shooting:
...Finch moved a hand toward the area of his waistband...

'Tis a chilly Friday night here,

with threats of a little freezing stuff falling; I'd suggest staying inside.

With study material.

Let's see... $40 for a ticket

to the New Year's stuff downtown.  It'll be nasty cold, and crowded, and loud...

No.  HELL no.

If you've got kids or relatives in college,

what kind of crap are they being taught?
A professor recently encouraged students to break the law in order to “destroy” the system of “white democracy,” saying the American flag doesn’t even represent about half of them.
Etc.  Ignoring that if this society were as bad as he paints it, he'd be in a camp.  Like the ones his precious socialist societies always build.

This.  Is.  CNN.
CNN anchor Pamela Brown interviewed New York Democratic Rep. Gregory Meeks for five straight minutes on Wednesday without once asking him about the taxpayer-funded settlement paid out to a former staffer after he allegedly fired her in retaliation for reporting a donor-related sexual assault.

So: if you shop at some chain store, you're supporting racism and probably racist.  But if you shop at a farmers market, you're racist too.
The short version of leftist belief: If you're white, you're racist. If you're not white, you can call for the death of all white people(or just 'all whiteness') and that's not racist or bigoted, because whites are to blame.  For everything.

I swear, at some point in the near future some idiot's going to announce that white people created smallpox or the plague.

They've announced that it'll probably hit single-digits for New Year; if you think I'm going to be out in that, among a bunch of drunks, to celebrate... you're wrong.

Mr. Williamson has an opinion: Why America Needs

More Violence.
I see his point.  Doesn't mean I like it, but I do see it.  And he just might be right.

Of course, a lot of that could be avoided by the protected classes not being protected from consequences anymore...*

But- but they said 'Snowfall will be a thing of the past due to global warmening!'  How could this be?

Commenting on this situation, a friend observed that “Leftists don’t like being exposed for returning to their night rider KKK roots.”

Another point of "We're supposed to trust any of these bastards?  Why?"

That's not comforting.

*Also, more publicity when, say, some crooked/abusive cop gets his ass handed to him would help.

No kidding

What people can do with what they buy at the gun store doesn’t bother me much. It’s what the brilliant molecular biologist who has gone sideways can do in his basement in mayonnaise jars that absolutely terrifies me.
Which is the basis for a number of books, including this series.

It's cold out there, and I'm way behind in some things, so that's it for now; I'll be back.

Merry Christmas to all, and

Ho Ho Ho!
The Trump administration has worked out some ‘historic’ belt-tightening at the United Nations, officials announced Sunday. The UN’s budget has been slashed by more than $285 million, according to Ambassador Nikki Haley, who said the cost cuts gutted the organization’s ‘bloated management.’ On Sunday, Haley said the trimmed-down budget would mean increased discipline and accountability throughout the international organization.”
It won't, but it's a start, and it'll scare and infuriate all the right people.  Now that's a present under the tree.

And in the spirit of the season,
