The real stories behind the headlines

Instapundit's editorial in USA Today reminds people what the election is about:

We need to be talking about five wars, the national debt, rising health care costs and corruption.

well, maybe make that four wars: Syria is about over, and Putin/ Iran/ Assad have won.


is Gender theory, so beloved of the radical feminists, incompatible with science?

Ms. Airaksinen describes just how far modern feminism takes this belief:
[M]erely mentioning biological differences can be wrongthink. Or worse, as I learned in one of my classes, it can be upsetting to genderqueer or transgender students. Thus, some of the root causes of what makes men and women differ — hormonal, neurological, and biological differences — is left out of the discussion.

Obviously, culture does play a large part in shaping behavioral differences between the genders. But to deny the prominent role of biology in our lives is dangerous nonsense. ...  Unfortunately, feminist ideology has already undermined academic freedom. Despite such well documented biological and psychological differences between men and women, some scientists have admitted being afraid to talk about them out of fear of being labeled "sexist."

and I won't even mention the problem that modern gender theory is doing to the idea of marriage, family, children, or freedom of religion...


International security analyst Austin Bay takes off his defense news hat to warn:

Let’s be blunt: Democratic Party operative Robert Creamer used terror to wage war on honesty. Until forced to resign his post as a “consultant” with a Democratic Party-aligned organization named Americans United for Change, Creamer ran what amounts to a domestic U.S. political terror and propaganda operation dedicated to undermining the 2016 U.S. presidential election—“rigging the election,” to use the current term....
The election rigging scheme he commanded relies on street thuggery. That means physical fear—terror—is a core component of Americans United for Change’s crooked enterprise. Street thuggery is very low-level terrorism, but it is a type of terrorism nonetheless and it is wrong to call it otherwise. ...
Street thuggery as an arm of politics is violent, criminalized politics on an ugly downward slope to much worse, the worse including lynchings and pogroms. If you don’t think street thuggery is terror then consider Kristalnacht.
no, its only political terror if done by politically correct enemies.


Don't worry: the SMOD will rescue us from a Trump administration. via Twitchy:

"this election is still going to be an absolute nightmare, but I'm glad it will end with an extinction level asteroid impact."

Not SMOD! We expect corruption from Hillary Clinton, maybe even Donald Trump … but NOT from SMOD!

this is from a political operative who not only defended Clinton I from impeachment but managed to double dip while working at the State Department.

Silly me, but I thought that was illegal.

Mills’ employment arrangement has raised questions regarding potential conflicts of interest, in Mills' case about how one of the State Department’s top employees set boundaries between her public role and a private job that involved work on a project funded by a foreign government.[19] Under Federal ethics laws, employees are prohibited from participating in matters that would have any direct and predictable effect on themselves or an outside employer...
her take on this when questioned: conflict of interest? What conflict of interest?

and Wikipedia has her quoted joking about helping to miscount the Election data in Haiti.


and if the SMOD doesn't kill us, global warming will.

Remember Doggerland and shudder!
