Oh this is rich.....

If you follow the news you know that Bannon and Frum had a debate in Toronto recently.  The so-called tolerant Liberals tried to prevent the debate from taking place.  Then a screw-up at the end left people with the mistaken belief that Bannon had actually won, when in point of fact it appears the results were, by the scoring used, a statistical tie.

But the screamer -- Frum blowing his own brains out -- is right here:

The story ends, then, in a great irony. Integral to the liberal project, again in the broad sense of the word liberal, is confidence in the power of reason. Words and arguments can overbear ignorance and prejudice. Over the long term, words and arguments can even overcome oppression and violence. That’s why liberals in the broad sense are so uniquely horrified by official lying: How can reason prevail unless words connect to reality? How can we argue against people who will spread fictions, if serviceable to them, without a qualm?

What?

There has not been one whit of honesty in, for example, the treatment of Kavanaugh.  Every single liberal -- big "L" or little "l" -- involved has consistently lied.  There are now two criminal referrals for lying about capital felonies.  The media has breathlessly reported all of the lies and not one bit of the refutation of same, nor has it focused in any way on the rank hypocrisy and inconsistencies -- all hallmarks of lying.

Ditto for the so-called "caravan."  The facts are that these individuals broke the law immediately upon entering Mexico which they did, largely, by force.  That is they broke down a fence or jumped a border after being told not to; it is not as if there was any question that they knew their actions were criminal.  They did not care.

Then there is the rabid anti-Semite that was caught in NY; the media and liberals all claimed right up front when the graffiti and attempted arsons happened that it must be a white Trump supporter.  They did so without a single shred of evidence and then, when the alleged perpetrator was caught and it turned out to be a black, queer and liberal activist do you think there was a single apology rendered?  Oh hell no.

How can reason prevail unless words connect to reality?

I'll answer that: It cannot and thank you very much for splattering your own brains all over the sidewalk, Frum -- and that of the Atlantic, for which you work.

What kills me is people acting like this is all a new thing for America, like the country hasn't been in a dead end war for 17 years. Like the war on drugs or the healthcare debacle, or immigration, aren't decades old things, like 2008 never happened, or the dotcom bubble...

Trump is just exposing the fact that the American system has no consequences for lying and hasn't had them for a very long time. Nobody cares at the end of the day.

From what I've observed, liberals feel absolutely no hint of cognitive dissonance when they say something like that immediately followed by saying that they approve shutting down the opposite side without debate.

They remind me of the Red Queen in Through The Looking Glass.

Quote:
"I can't believe that!" said Alice.
"Can't you?" the Queen said in a pitying tone. "Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes."
Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she said: "one can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."


1. If we just implement all the right laws, we can achieve heaven on earth.
2. Banning guns will eliminate violence.
3. Shouting down opponents shows liberals' superior intellects and morality.
4. Illegal immigrants don't commit crimes.
5. Crossing the border makes you an American (Magic Dirt!).
6. There are at least 70 different genders.

I could keep going, so I guess that liberals must practice a lot. They are very good at it.

All politicians lie, but none lie as often or as egregiously as demonrats.

It was a horrible YouTube video!

we have discussed here the satellite issue, reliance on GPS and supposedly autonomous tech that really relies to a large degree upon GPS and other connectivity. let's not forget clock time being necessary for electronic commerce which uses mostly GPS now.

I watched the entire thing. In the abstract, Bannon said Frum was wrong and Frum said Bannon was evil. I left thinking the left has not learned a thing from that deplorable line of attack.

Damn it :(

"Liberal Blows Own Head Off"

I read the headline and was hoping for a picture of Don Lemon's head half gone, it turns out your quote above if figurative not literal :(

Still a great article, just not what I was hoping for.

I was having a discussion with a female ultra leftist about Kavanaugh. I have no idea why I even opened my stupid mouth about this subject with this person. I said that the total lack of presumption of innocence was upsetting to me. The Leftist went ballistic and screamed that the confirmation was nothing more than a job interview, and there was no presumption of innocence needed.

I asked if it was then OK for people to make you unemployable in your chosen field by telling lies about you. Stony silence.

I wonder what a civil war would be like, and whether my family and I would survive. I also wonder if this country would ever recover from it. Guess we will find out.

I read that article. Frum seems to do a lot of self-projecting and labelling of people he doesn't know. Where have I heard this crap before? There is ultimately no logic or reason in his statements. He resorts back to the same old Alinsky playbook - demonize everyone. The end justifies the means.

Once again liberals as Frum must make an ENEMY out of everyone that disagrees with them.

I think it is abundantly clear that Leftists cannot be shamed into doing the correct thing through the means of pointing out their own hypocrisy and use of double standards.

However, this is extraordinarily effective for Right-thnking people. Saul Alinsky noted as much in his Rules for Radicals.

"Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules."

There is no compromise or meeting of the minds with these people. They must be defeated.

how'd that work for Republicans? Now try fighting fire with fire. That's why Trump is in the White House.
Some realize the 'Progressives' mean war. So, all's fair in Love and War.

Also, should "Punch cards were binned ..." be "Punch cards were banned ..."?
