Clarice Feldman – Victor Davis Hanson, writing in American Greatness, surveys how history’s bad ideas inspire the “progressives.” He focuses on the plans for court packing, the resegregation of students in universities, the growing movements to censor speech, restaurants’ decision to refuse service to those whose views they disagree with and local governments’ nullification of laws (sanctuary cities).
The common themes in all these schemes are innate to progressivism. To survive and spread, exalted righteousness always excuses tawdry methods, given the supposed ignorance and gullibility of the unenlightened.
Short-term expediency is well worth the goal of regaining power. Any smell from low tactics later can be perfumed away – once power is back in the correct hands.
Unfortunately for them, it seems not to be working so well this time. The growing #WalkAway movement, in which lifelong Democrats publicly announce they are walking away from the party, shows they supposed wrong about “the ignorance and gullibility of the unenlightened.” Continue reading “Exalted Righteousness, Tawdry Methods Lead to Walk Away”
Sundance – This is important. This is very important. The collective DOJ, FBI and “allied contractors” activity in 2015 and 2016 is the origin of the political opposition research that developed into the Trump investigation via the FISA application(s). Jordan appears to be one of the few who understand the importance of the timeline.

“Nothing is foreign parts relate to the whole: One all extending, all preserving soul –connects each being, greatest with the least – made beast in aid of man, and man of beast; all served, all serving – nothing stands alone. Has God, thou fool, worked solely for thy good, thy joy, thy pastime, thy attire, thy food?” – Pope’s Essay on Man.
Elva Thompson – It seems that in today’s world humanity is lurching from one disaster to another. Everywhere we look we see division, hate, environmental degradation; the extinction of species, and a wholesale disregard for life: animal, vegetable and mineral. Madness is exploding exponentially across our tired world and the great machine we call life drags us along in a frantic race for survival – a repetitive, humdrum reality that leaves most of us in a constant state of mental and nervous exhaustion.
Our actions isolate us from the earth. We wear shoes, travel in cars and planes, live in boxes made of brick and glass, and modulate reality with delusion, drugs and stimulants. Our personal energy becomes eclipsed by our mechanical lifestyle with its conflicts and exclusivity.
Life in this fast ‘whirled’ is only valued for what it can produce in terms of profit or gratification of the senses. Little thought is given to the mystery of life or the divine potentialities latent within consciousness. It is only man’s arrogance that leads him to imagine that Source Creator made all things for his sole use. In essence, we have lost our way, lost contact with the awesome power of Source – the unifying divine force that invigorates and informs all creation from the tiniest atom to the highest mountain.

Cell phone radiation is a big concern for many people, but manufacturers have largely downplayed the risks, and they’re quick to point out that their products meet the regulatory limits.
Isabelle Z. – That may be true, but what if the regulatory limits are inherently flawed?
Data released by France’s National Frequency Agency, ANFR, paints a very different picture of cell phone radiation danger. They found that nine out of ten popular phones that were found “compliant” in earlier lab tests were far above the legal limits when tested in ways that reflect how people actually use and carry their phones.
The original compliance tests entailed measuring the radiation that is absorbed by a test dummy filled with liquid, but this is done using a “separation distance.”
When the agency re-tested popular phones from makers like Apple, Samsung, Nokia, and Motorola in the carry position most people use close to their body, they discovered that some had three times greater radiation than their original readings.

Sean Adl-Tabatabai – Congress has drafted a new law making the act of joining or supporting Antifa punishable by a 15 year prison sentence.
Under the proposed act, anyone caught engaging in traditional Antifa activities, including wearing a mask, threatening, intimidating or oppressing people “in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” will be imprisoned for at least 15 years.
The bill, known as the “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” is the first time Congress has recognised the far-left organization as a potential domestic terrorist threat.
Theepochtimes.com reports: The bill is being proposed by Rep. Dan Donovan (R-NY), Rep. Peter King (R-NY), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), and Rep. Ted Budd (R-N.C.). The bill was introduced in June, but it received a push from conservative commentator Mike Cernovich, who retweeted Mic reporter Jack Smith IV on Tuesday. They called on people to contact their representatives to vote for the bill. A number of local Antifa groups, including the Rose City Antifa, posted their disdain about the proposal on social media.
