For those who think calling it the Wuhan virus is racist(y'know, like all those racist news weenies

who were calling it that for weeks),

And in other information news,

The big Tulsa gun show has cancelled the spring show

Had hoped to make it.  Maybe come fall.

Screw the virus, it's Friday evening, chilly and wet,

and there's some study material available to distract

This should be interesting

Many young people on the Irish Right have long claimed that there is institutional bias constantly working against them. However, it is only now that we can definitively say that this is not the case.

There is no institutional bias against young conservatives. There is an outright conspiracy against them. A conspiracy that starts at the lower levels of university life and leads all the way up, like a conveyor belt, to the NGO complex and the halls of the Oireachtas. Individuals brazenly abusing their positions of power trying to destroy their political opponents, with no fear of repercussions. It is with this series of exposés that these repercussions will finally start to materialise. 

More on the idiocy, bias and bad science of the '1619 Project'

Their first article was here.    The current one is here.  I haven't had time to read the whole thing, here's one excerpt:
The methodology that underlies the 1619 Project is idealist (i.e., it derives social being from thought, rather than the other way around) and, in the most fundamental sense of the word, irrationalist. All of history is to be explained from the existence of a supra-historical emotional impulse. Slavery is viewed and analyzed not as a specific economically rooted form of the exploitation of labor, but, rather, as the manifestation of white racism. But where does this racism come from? It is embedded, claims Hannah-Jones, in the historical DNA of American “white people.” Thus, it must persist independently of any change in political or economic conditions.

Hannah-Jones’s reference to DNA is part of a growing tendency to derive racial antagonisms from innate biological processes. Democratic Party politician Stacey Abrams, in an essay published recently in Foreign Affairs, claims that whites and African Americans are separated by an “intrinsic difference.”

This irrational and scientifically absurd claim serves to legitimize the reactionary view—entirely compatible with the political perspective of fascism—that blacks and whites are hostile and incompatible species.
Please note: who's been demanding segregated dorms and classes and 'multi-cultural centers'?  It hasn't been conservatives/libertarians...

Want to hear very polite and judicial words for "You people are damned liars"?

"There is thus little doubt that the government breached its duty of candor to the Court with respect to those applications," Boasberg wrote.
"The frequency and seriousness of these errors in a case that, given its sensitive nature, had an unusually high level of review at both DOJ and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have called into question the reliability of the information proffered in other FBI applications," Boasberg wrote.
Not only "You're damned liars in this matter", but "You cannot be trusted on ANY matter you've been involved in.

Director Wray, who seems to think that setting up some new classes on "You must be more careful about lying to courts" will solve the matter, better get it through his head that either the people responsible need to be charged for the laws they broke, or their precious Bureau will never, ever be trusted again.

This piece of shit was running the EffingBI,

but we're supposed to trust that the agency is all legitimate and honorable and to be trusted.
Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe publicly admitted that after the firing of James Comey, national security officials strategized on invoking the 25th amendment to remove President Trump from office. 

“There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment,” Scott Pelley said he learned in his “60 Minutes” interview with McCabe.
"We had to do it because Russia, and saving the country!"

I can see zero reason at this point to trust ANY federal LE agency.  About much of anything.

There are people it's too bad they're dead,

because they deserved some really nasty, appropriate punishment for what they've done.
VICTIMS of a warped social experiment in Germany where authorities deliberately placed troubled kids with paedophile foster parents are set to win compensation. 

Between 1969 to 2003, these homeless boys aged between six and 14 were handed over to paedos — because it was thought the vulnerable kids might benefit from their attention.
Both the doctor, and every politician and 'child welfare' type involved deserve the same for what they did.

And the only things I can think of that are really appropriate fall well into the heading of 'cruel and unusual'.
