As a first-year student at the University of San Francisco, I arrived just days after Manson and his evil crew had murdered seven people. I still remember the frightening photograph of Manson on the front page of The San Francisco Chronicle that arrived outside my dorm room.

At the time, California was in a high state of anxiety and fear. The brutal murders had scared almost everyone.

Manson and his followers had spent time near USF, which is located just a few blocks from Haight-Ashbury, where the 1967 “Summer of Love” occurred.

Hippies arrived from throughout the country to create a community based on ill-conceived ideas, drugs, and music. During 1967, psychedelic music entered the mainstream. Scott McKenzie’s song “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair),” became a hit that year. The Monterey Pop Festival in June further cemented the status of psychedelic music as a part of mainstream culture and elevated local Haight bands, such as the Grateful Dead, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and Jefferson Airplane to stardom.

The neighborhood also attracted Manson, a longtime loser who was in and out of prison.

By the time I got to San Francisco only two years later, Haight had become a crime-ridden and heroin-infested place where only those who sought danger and hardcore drugs dared to visit. It’s also where Manson had collected a crew of fellow losers bent on evil.

As The New York Times noted: “To a frightened, mesmerized public, the murders, with their undercurrents of sex, drugs, rock ’n’ roll and Satanism, seemed the depraved logical extension of the anti-establishment, do-your-own-thing ethos that helped define the ’60s.”

Let’s face it. The hippie culture—in which I was once a willing participant—provided the basis for many of society’s ills both then and now, from drug use to sexual deviancy.

Less than a decade later I reported about the deaths of 900 people in Guyana at hands of Jim Jones, another depraved leader who emerged from the same primordial ooze of San Francisco.

Like much of today’s media try to explain “motives” for mass murderers, many news organizations analyzed Manson’s actions as the result of an abusive childhood and a mental disorder.

In a neck-snapping analysis of Manson’s “human” side, The Los Angeles Times’ David Ulin argues: “For those who have faith in an afterlife, I suppose there’s some solace in imagining he will get his karmic comeuppance. But it makes more sense to me to see him as an agent of the hells we create on Earth.

“Manson was a killer, yes, and he was a psychopath, but he was never otherworldly. The violence and the hatred he embodied may be his most human attribute.”

It’s hard to untangle the logical fallacies in those two paragraphs.

But there’s more. Newsweek had this headline: How Murderer Charles Manson and Donald Trump Used Language to Gain Followers.

Seriously?

There’s a far better explanation for Manson. He was the embodiment of evil without any motive other than his desire to control people and to kill others. Unfortunately, he got more than 15 minutes of fame.

Throughout his years in prison, Manson denied having ordered the murders. Neither did he feel remorse about the killings as he said during an interview with Charlie Rose.

“So you didn’t care?” Rose asked.

“Care?” Manson replied. “What the hell does that mean, ‘care’?”

May he rot in hell!

David Lee Alcon, via Albuquerque jounral

I’ve stated on this site that if Roy Moore was still a Democrat that the Harvey Weinstein / Bill Clinton media/left take on this story would be very different.

Now we have proof.

Meet David Alcon one of a large group of democrats running for an open seat in the New Mexico 1st district that hasn’t gone for the GOP since the last decade.

A Milan-based political consultant with a familiar last name has joined the race to succeed Republican Steve Pearce in Congress.
David Lee Alcon, son of state Rep. Eliseo Lee Alcon, D-Milan, is now among six Democrats seeking the nomination in the 2nd Congressional District, which covers the southern half of New Mexico.

“I think we need a liberal in Congress,” David Alcon said in an interview Tuesday. “I think I’m it.”

His big issue seems to be drawing a major sports team into the state:

New Mexico’s amazing weather, expansive landscape and enthusiastic residents make for an ideal location for an exciting and innovative development-one stadium in the heart of the Southwest that will be home to not only a NFL expansion team, but ALSO a MLS team.
Economic Possibilities

New Mexico deserves a major-league sports presence. By developing a partnership between the National Football League and Major League Soccer, the state-of-the-art stadium will see nearly year-round action, and the state and communities surrounding it will reap the economic benefits and enjoy some thrilling sports.
Jobs in Central New Mexico

A project of this magnitude provides a consistent pool of excellent jobs for New Mexicans. Jobs in construction, development, stadium operation, computer systems are just a few of the fields to benefit from NFL/MLS expansion teams.

Now one can debate if Mr. Alcon’s position on this is a good one or not (I think public money to draw sports teams hurt tax payers) but I think there is no debate that on the issue of stalking women Mr. Alcon’s position leaves much to be desired:

David Alcon, the 39-year-old announced candidate for the Southern New Mexico congressional seat, has been arrested on suspicion of stalking a Santa Fe woman.

Alcon, a Democrat whose address is in Milan, was picked up by Albuquerque police on Friday and booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center, jail records show.

A Santa Fe judge signed a warrant for Alcon’s arrest nearly two weeks ago, after a Santa Fe woman told police she was at a Halloween party when Alcon sent her a number of threatening text messages. A criminal complaint filed by Santa Fe police said Alcon’s texts told the woman he was watching her, wanted to have children with her, and contained a picture of his genitals.

According to the complaint, the woman stated “multiple times in the text messages that she did not want anything to do with Alcon, and she repeatedly told him to leave her alone.”

Well, that’s really something, a Democrat consultant, the son of a Democrat State Rep and a Candidate for an open seat in congress arrested for stalking a woman? Given the Roy Moore feeding frenzy I imagine this would be front page news. On Morning Joe they would be denouncing Alcon. On CNN Jake Tapper would be talking about this on his panel. Martha Raddatz would be questioning Democrats about having such a person in their field, Twitter would be aflame with people denouncing him and of course Gloria Aldred would be rushing the victim to New York to hold a press conference with evidence of these actions.

Or as the Daily Caller reports perhaps not:

The story has been met with silence from a number of media outlets despite their breathless coverage of the sexual assault scandal surrounding Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.

According to a search of the television database TV Eyes, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC have given zero on-air coverage to Alcon’s arrest. The networks have also not published any stories about Alcon’s scandal on their websites in the past week.

Meanwhile, ABC, CBS, and NBC spent more than 79 minutes talking about Roy Moore between November 9 and November 13.

No ABC, No NBC, No CBS, No CNN, No PBS no Twitter Outrage and Certainly no Gloria Aldred

So let’s get this straight, 35 year old accusations against a GOP candidate for an open seat in the congress generally held by the GOP , are newsworthy to the point where there is a national feeding frenzy even though there has not been a single charge filed and said candidate strenuously denies said charges.

Yet the actual arrest of a Democrat Candidate for an open seat in the congress, generally held by Democrats are, even one of a large field, is so unnewsworthy that no major media outlet is touching the story even with A current charge, a victim who has made a police report and an actual arrest. And this is the case in a news environment where such charges are on the tip of everyone’s tongue.

Nope doesn’t matter, it doesn’t fit the MSM template so no media, no social media and certainly no Gloria Aldred.

People have wondered aloud why I haven’t yet joined the MSM/Left bandwagon against Moore. Me I still wonder why people are so quick to give credence to the MSM given this double standard right looking us right in the face.

Now I’ll stipulate for the record that if Roy Moore is lying that he should be out, even if it risks handing a senate seat to the party of Harvey Weinstein/Bill Clinton Democrat for a time.

But I’d be must more inclined to believe that there is some THERE there is at least one of these women were willing to go to a police station, file a complaint and make their charges under pain of perjury, after all if Moore is guilty of crimes he needs to be actually charged and prosecuted.

At least at that point the charges against Moore would have reached the David Alcon standard.

Closing thought #1: If Moore drops out of this race I predict that despite claims that he is a serial violator of women not a single charge will be filed, not a single lawsuit will be launched and none of the people currently virtue signaling on TV Radio or twitter will be the least bit disturbed that they find not being a US senator an acceptable punishment for a serial abuser of women and children.

Update: Sacred Feces!

Other than our dialogue on stage, I never had a voluntary conversation with Al Franken again. I avoided him as much as possible and made sure I was never alone with him again for the rest of the tour.

Franken repaid me with petty insults, including drawing devil horns on at least one of the headshots I was autographing for the troops.

But he didn’t stop there.

The tour wrapped and on Christmas Eve we began the 36-hour trip home to L.A. After 2 weeks of grueling travel and performing I was exhausted. When our C-17 cargo plane took off from Afghanistan I immediately fell asleep, even though I was still wearing my flak vest and Kevlar helmet.

It wasn’t until I was back in the US and looking through the CD of photos we were given by the photographer that I saw this one:

Paging Gloria Aldred? MSM liberals, Twitter Lynch Mob? Anyone of the Democrat liberals who have been breathlessly demanding I denounce Roy Moore?

So lets get this straight 30+ year old accusations vs Roy Moore mean he should pull out of his senate race but we have photographic evidence of Al Frankin doing this against a woman’s will and he remains a sitting Senator?

I guess Glenn Reynolds was right:

Based on what we know so far, what percentile of awfulness in the Senate would Roy Moore be? Would he be 99th Percentile — making him the worst person in the Senate? Seems doubtful given that there’s a secret slush fund paying victims of Congressional harassment already. He can’t compare to such past lions as Ted Kennedy or Robert Packwood, and it seems likely that there are other, current ones that we just haven’t hear about. So say he’s at the 90th percentile. That means there are 10 sitting Senators worse than him. How exercised should I be about the prospect of him joining them? And maybe he’s only, say, 75th percentile!

Jonathan Adler makes a persuasive case that Moore is a constitutional illiterate, but it’s not like that would set Moore apart much in the World’s Greatest Deliberative Body.

The truth is, the Senate is just awful — and the House is no better — because it’s full of politicians. The real travesty here isn’t that we might send another clown to join the clown show. It’s that the clown show has so much power, and so little accountability, when it’s doing things that are a lot more serious than groping.

And no, this isn’t good, it’s terrible. It’s more evidence of our decline. And I feel bad for having to point it out, again.

And that was written before the Frankin story broke.

Update 2:  In fairness to Frankin vs Moore, the Moore allegations are from a pre-digital camera/cell phone era so I’ll be happy to settle for at least one complaint formally filed to meet the David Alcon standard.

Update 3:  Daily Kos AL-Sen: Sen. Al Franken (D. MN) Gives Doug Jones’ (D) Campaign A Boost In Beating Roy Moore (R)

Sorry for missing this but I received this e-mail yesterday from U.S. Senator Al Franken (D. MN) in support of Doug Jones’ (D. AL) U.S. Senate campaign:

There is one race for U.S. Senate going on in 2017 — the Alabama special election to replace Jeff Sessions.

That means we have exactly one chance left this year to elect someone who will fight to preserve access to affordable, quality health care.

Someone who believes in science and protecting our environment.

Someone who will fight for middle class families.

That someone is Doug Jones — and he needs our support.

I think the latest Roy Moore ad should be someone reading this endorsement

Update 4:  Al Frankin is on the Senate Floor both apologizing and saying it was a joke.  While CNN seems to be backing him up Moveon.org of all folks are having none of it:

The real irony? Moveon was formed to “Move on” from the sexual charges against Bill Clinton

Oh and praise for ABC Reporter Miriam Kahn who is asking Dem senators on Capital Hill about Frankin

Her timeline is full of this, she must not have gotten the memo that you never ask Democrats about things that can hurt the party.

When the story broke an hour ago that Roy Moore was being accused by multiple women of inappropriate sexual behavior when they were underage teens, I thought, “uh oh.” Then, I saw the source: Washington Post. A short wave of relief came over me before the real dread of our current situation took hold.

I don’t trust the Washington Post. They are among the worst journalistic predators in the country in that they claim to be the beacon of truth while constantly spinning facts to match their liberally approved narratives. They adamantly protest accusations of being biased while demonstrating pure and unadulterated bias with every political story they post. What’s worse is that they have, for several years now, allowed their “news” stories to be editorialized. They are a propaganda machine. They should not be trusted.

That’s the problem. I have no idea whether or not Roy Moore did what they claim. As Breitbart points out, it’s conspicuous that the story broke shortly after the paper endorsed his opponent. That SHOULD shine a light of skepticism on the story altogether, but it won’t. Most Americans, even the ones who acknowledge there’s plenty of fake news out there, willfully stick their heads in the sand when it comes to the “respected” publications of old like WaPo, USA Today, and the New York Times.

I’m not against editorializing. I’m doing it right now. What concerns me is the intellectual dishonesty and blatant manipulation these news outlets embrace. They are not unbiased. I’m biased and readily admit it. Most if not all writers on this publications are equally biased and in no way attempt to hide that fact from our readers. WaPo does. Their facade of journalistic integrity means that stories like the Roy Moore blockbuster will do major damage whether it’s true or not. In general, Americans do not put on the glasses of skepticism when WaPo publishes something.

The left won’t believe RedState or Daily Caller. The right won’t believe Slate or Salon. Both are workable dynamics because there’s no illusion attempted by these publications. They’re biased and proud of it. WaPo perpetuates an illusion if journalistic integrity. By doing so, they have far too much power in wielding the “truth” even if it’s spun in the direction they want.

These reports are so old that there’s very little chance they can be proven. Unfortunately, there’s also very little chance they can be properly refuted. That’s the power of the “unbiased” mainstream media. They can cast shadows of doubt in any direction they choose based upon their bias. They can choose to print allegations about Moore. They can choose to ignore allegations about Barack Obama. When a major media outlet is biased while claiming otherwise, we’re left with deciding which truth to believe.

Despite the attack in New York City an important new analysis demonstrates that the terrorists’ effectiveness has been seriously affected in the past year and is likely to continue to fade as a significant threat.

That doesn’t mean that the world can be less vigilant, but it does mean that once again the media can create a meme to downplay a major U.S. victory.

The well-regarded Terrorism Analysis & Research Consortium, better known as TRAC, released an analysis of IS attacks, which shows that the organization has been far less effective in recent months.

TRAC reported: “IS’s highlighting of terror attacks against civilians in Western Europe–and the mainstream media’s obsession with those attacks–serves to obscure important aspects of Islamic State strategy. While more than 200 claimed attacks in just over 100 days appears impressive to IS supporters and terrifying to the world at large, a closer look at the claims in their entirety reveals as much about Islamic State’s limitations as its aspirations.” For more information, see https://www.trackingterrorism.org/article/considering-claimed-attacks-islamic-states-hidden-narrative/introduction-summer-2017-executi

Here are some of the important findings:

• The projection of increasing global reach is inaccurate. Just three countries accounted for 175 of 222 attacks (nearly 80 percent) during last summer: Philippines (99 claims), Afghanistan (43 claims), and Egypt (33 claims). TRAC contends that these places, which receive scant Western attention, represent the narrative of IS future territory.

• To narrow the gap even further, of the three countries that hold 80 percent of the claims, just three areas in those countries accounted for 115 of 222 attacks in the summer (more than 50 percent): Marawi city in Philippines’ Autonomous Region of Muslim Majority or ARMM (67), Nangarhar province in Afghanistan (26), and Egypt’s Upper Sinai (22).

• During the summer, IS could not claim repeat attacks in 10 countries that had been attacked in 2015 and 2016. Bangladesh went from six claims in 2016 to zero in 2017. Saudi Arabia had three in 2015 and no subsequent summer repeats. Germany had just two total claims, coming in summer 2016. The inability to repeat attacks in the same location summer after summer highlights the Islamic State’s lack of sustainability.

• For last summer, the United Kingdom topped the newcomer’s list with three high-profile attacks. These three attacks received massive international attention, especially in the Western media.

• Out of the 32 total countries attacked during the past three years, only four countries—France, Libya, Yemen, and Egypt—were attacked three summers in a row. Even with the recent spate of claims in the U.K., France has been, by far the country hardest hit by IS in Europe.

Simply put, IS has been unable to launch attacks outside the Middle East and the Philippines except in rare instances in Britain and France. The Philippines government recently cleared out an IS stronghold there.

The disruption of the IS financial and geographical power in the Middle East has had a profound effect. Moreover, the destruction of the command-and-control and propaganda centers of IS in Syria and Iraq will make it more difficult to entice followers to launch attacks outside of the Middle East.

Al-Qaeda saw its influence drop dramatically after the United States closed its operational headquarters in Afghanistan. That is what is likely to happen with IS.

Again, that doesn’t mean the West can ignore the Islamist threat, particularly after the recent attack in New York City. It does mean that a continuous and concerted offensive against extremists does work.

There are actually two major problems today between liberals and their puppets in mainstream media. On one hand, we have leftists hiding behind the media as their journalistic shields. On the other hand, we have the media willfully covering up for leftists by spinning stories that expose the left, not reporting them at all, and/or highlighting every potential misstep by conservatives. They are not the same thing but must be addressed the same way.

I often read stories complaining about this phenomenon. They throw up statistics, count the number of minutes given to one story instead of another story on network news, and generally gripe about how unfair it is. There are certain things that need to be done if we’re going to fix this problem. I’ve broken them down into a three step process:

  1. Accept it. Mainstream media with very few exceptions leans left and will likely always lean left for the rest of our natural lives. It’s time to accept this as fact. Accepting it does not mean we shouldn’t speak out about it nor does it mean we need to give up. If we accept that the cards are stacked against us, we can quell the frustration that comes with every leftist-leaning headline. More importantly, we can plan accordingly.
  2. Spend time here. One of the reasons I love writing for Peter here at DaTechGuy Blog is because I can count on an audience that’s right-leaning. I’m a small-government federalist, a social conservative, and a constitutionalist. These three things mean I won’t make many liberals happy with anything I write. It’s important that we band together as an audience and support sites like this, RedState, Conservative Review, and my newest foray into conservative media, NOQ Report. It’s tempting for some to go to Google News, CNN, or even more moderate Fox News for the skinny on what’s happening in the world. I humbly request that you come to sites like this one first.
  3. Spread the word. We all have a louder voice than we did before the internet. With social media at our fingertips and word-of-mouth that we can use at work and other venues, we can get more people to read stories from sites like this before getting the leftist spin on mainstream media. The more we share, the easier it will be to keep sites like this one thriving. Just as some are boycotting the NFL or Hollywood, so too should we be boycotting the sites that actively promote the progressive agenda.

It bugs me when I see the same people complaining about how liberal mainstream media is go off and share mainstream media stories on social media. Those same stories without the liberal spin can be found on conservative sites. It takes a little more effort to find the stories sometimes, but it’s worth it rather than continuing to send people to the “big” sites.

The battle for the future of America can only be fought with two weapons: faith and knowledge. Pray for the nation. Then, help spread the word about sites like this one so we can get more Americans reading the truth rather than the leftist-filtered mainstream media garbage most people read.

Via facebook

Two weeks ago I noticed this story at PJ Media that enraged me:

At about 1 AM or so on Saturday morning, I was awakened by a noise outside my home. I can’t really say what the noise was as it woke me from a deep sleep. It was just a shout that awoke me. I looked at my window and saw what struck me as a strange light outside. So, I went to the front door…

And saw my car interior on fire…

The surface of my passenger seat was set aflame and the entire interior of the car destroyed. Fortunately it isn’t a new car (it’s a 1999 Oldsmobile 88). But unfortunately, because it is so old I never put it on comprehensive coverage leaving it only at liability coverage. So, insurance won’t cover this destruction and I am now without a car.

While I promoted the gofundme campaign on twitter and on this site I choose not to write a full post on the subject because I wanted to see what the MSM would do.  After all here is a reporter who has been covering some controversial groups and pulling no punches who has been the target for actual harassment at his home now culminating in the torching of his car.

Well it’s been two weeks so I went to google and did a news search on Warner Todd Huston on google news and at Yahoo News.

On both sites you had a smattering of his articles at Breitbart from Transsexual Arrested for Alleged Rape of 10-Year-Old Girl in a Bathroom

A Wyoming man who identifies as a woman named “Michelle” is now standing trial for the alleged rape of a 10-year-old girl, reports say.
Miguel Martinez was arrested after the child’s mother reported the attack to Caspar, Wyoming, police. Martinez was arrested and pleaded not guilty last May, and now the trial is underway.

To covering the unravelling of yet another fake hate crime in Michigan

A black man has been arrested for a series of racist graffiti attacks that shocked minority students starting last fall at Eastern Michigan University.

However Yahoo had no results concerning this incident and at google the only other result I found was this piece at the Canada free press:

Warner maintains his own website, Publius’ Forum, (publiusforum.com). He began blogging in 2001, making a name for himself in the “blogosphere” early on. He got in on the ground floor at the urging of the late Andrew Breitbart when Andrew began his now-famous website in 2008. Warner has continued to write for Breitbart since then, in addition to many other publications that carry his work.

Huston’s son has set up a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising enough funds to replace his car. Huston says it was an old car, only covered by liability insurance. For most in this business, writing does not make one rich, or even comfortable. It is a labor of love and commitment to our beloved country – a nation now threatened by the forces of anarchy.

But ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, Washington Post, NY Times, PBS etc? Not a peep.

I called Warner to ask him if, given the MSM “reporters are in danger” meme that we saw this year, if anyone in the MSM had contacted him: “Nobody from the MSM”.

The one exception was the Daily caller, they did contact him but “decided not to go for it as they didn’t see enough to blame it on somebody.”

Meanwhile the MSM has no shortage of headlines about the threats reporters face under trump:

The Day: Trump’s troubling anti-media threats

Washington Post: Trump escalates threats against press, calls news coverage ‘frankly disgusting’

LA Times: Op-Ed Which is worse, Trump’s anti-media rhetoric, or his prosecution of 2 journalists?

Real Clear Politics: GOP Silence on Trump’s Press Threats Is Shameful

SF Chronicle: The world gets more Precarious for Press Freedom

St Louis Post Dispatch: Protests are a battleground for press freedom

But my favorite is this piece is the Chicago Tribune that suggested reestablishing trust in the press via local reporting:

But the real answer is a return to local reporting. It may come in the form of nonprofit, reader-supported websites like the Texas Tribune or New Haven Independent. It may come when somebody figures out a for-profit model that can deliver news to smaller audiences. But only when we know our reporters again will we begin to trust them.

While ignoring the targeting of a reporter in their own neck of the woods.  (Incidentally Warner told he he checked with his neighbors after the incident before the car was torched, none of them had even as much as an egg thrown at their windows during the various times he was hit.)

Warner has carried on, he’s  installed some security cameras and put up a sign and is waiting for the 30 day period so he can download what has been raised via the gofundme campaign to get another car.  I’m sorry to say he’s raised less that 50% of his $10,000 goal for the campaign (you can donate here if you want to help) and he’s kept on writing despite the silence of the press.

Of course if he had been a liberal journalist in a conservative city critically covering republicans, the tea party or anti-abortion activists who had his car torched he would be on TV every single day to the point where you knew his face better than Trump’s

So the next time some leftist or media person talks about how Donald Trump is encouraging violence against the press tell them about Warner Todd Huston and ask them why they are hearing about this for the first time?


As I have no sexual secrets of rich liberals to keep for a price I have to make my buck by going places and doing interviews all the time hoping people like it enough to pay for it.

Mainstream media often turns to the Southern Poverty Law Center as the authority on hate groups in the United States. Their ever-expanding list of organizations they label as spreaders of hate could be a valuable resource if it wasn’t so blatantly biased against any conservative thought.

As this article is being posted, Richard Spencer is scheduled to speak at the University of Florida shortly. He and his white nationalist movement have been labeled as a hate group and pretty much everything I know about them makes the label appropriate. All of the articles I’ve read about the event mention SPLC’s label. This would be a good thing without the aforementioned bias.

With the bias, SPLC is an elaborate joke being played on the media that doesn’t really have a punchline.

One of the organizations on the list is Windsor Hills Baptist Church. When I lived in Oklahoma a decade ago, I knew people who went to the church then and I assume they still go to the church now. I’m familiar with their teachings and their traditional views on marriage. They were placed on the list because Reverend Tom Vineyard made a statement before the city council that included declaring that 33% of child molesters were homosexual. One statement. That was six years ago. The church is still on the list.

Who’s not on the list? Black Lives Matter.

Who else isn’t on the list? Antifa.

To label a pastor and his congregation as a hate group because of one conservative-leaning statement, then to ignore the blatant and dangerous hatred that drives two liberal groups turns a potentially useful list into a parody of itself. How can they have a single ounce of credibility when they have a hair-trigger pointed at conservatives while holding judgment against liberals until the outcry is too great? In fact, the “liberal” groups they include on their list are invariably there because of at least one semi-conservative position in their agenda.

Black Lives Matter can promote violence against police all day without fear of being labeled by SPLC, but if they ever spoke out against LGBT rights, they’d probably make the list in a heartbeat. That’s how SPLC works. A hate group is only considered a hate group if they cross a threshold based upon ideology rather than actual hate. As long as groups like BLM and Antifa point their hatred in the “right” direction, SPLC considers their hatred as righteous.

This isn’t really about SPLC, though. They have the right to their opinions and while I completely disagree with their methodology and ideology, I would never ask them to stop doing what they’re doing. What’s troubling is the media’s love for their list. There’s no such thing as a truly unbiased journalist, but they should hold themselves accountable to the truth first. The SPLC hate group list is not the truth. It’s an agenda-driving narrative. That the media gives them so much authority on the issue is both unprofessional and dishonest.

Hate groups should be condemned based upon their actions and messages. SPLC passes out its condemnation based upon ideology alone. The media needs to stop giving them such a tall platform if they’re unwilling to define hate in an unbiased manner.

Prager U elaborated last week:

There has been a lot written about the silence of various people on the Harvey Weinstein business but there is one point that nobody seems to be interested in making.

Harvey Weinstein was a powerful man, he was a connected man. He knew Hollywood actors, journalists and pols. He had decades of success in the industry and became a powerhouse within it.

As a producer it is very likely that he was aware of all kinds of issues concerning his films, concerning stars, concerning journalists that might have an impact on his bottom line. It’s also very likely that he not only had such info on journalists and pols but might have even enabled such people in activities that they might not want made public.

This is my opinion the reason for the current silence by some and the long history of silence by others

So let me end this short post with an obvious question:

At what point does it become more profitable to Weinstein to share this three decades of info with the public than to keep silent now that everyone his going after him?

It is the answer to that question that terrifies hollywood most of all.


As I have no sexual secrets of rich liberals to keep for a price I have to make my buck by going places and doing interviews all the time hoping people like it enough to pay for it.

An interesting followup to yesterday’s post suggesting that if Hillary Clinton had won in 2016 Harvey Weinstein would not today be exposed as the man he has been for years.

Two days ago just as I arrived for work Red Sox left fielder Andrew Benintendi hit a two run homer off of Astro Ace Justin Verlander making his first relief appearance ever giving the Sox a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the fifth of game 4 of their series. I walked in smiling and when I told my lead the score, at he confidently predicted an Astro win so we bet a candy bar on the result.

Yesterday I was running late and found myself, thanks to Houston’s late comeback rushing into Shaw’s in Leominster to buy the bar to pay off that bet. I found myself stuck in a line behind a woman who was visiting her daughter who had just had her first child. The conversation in the line and with the cashier was Trump vs Mexico. At this point I interjected, “Well consider this, if Donald Trump isn’t elected there is no way that Harvey Weinstein is exposed by the NYT as he was a vital ally and fund raiser for Hillary Clinton.” The cashier agreed that this was true but the woman ahead of me had a slightly different take, while she agreed with my premise she stated quite emphatically: “Still isn’t worth it.”

Given that Mr. Weinstein preyed on woman (which she was) I found that opinion interesting and as I was leaving it hit me that not only would her daughter be of the age that Weinstein would go after but there is no reason to believe that if that new grandchild of hers wanted a career in movies a Harvey Weinstein or someone like him, would in 15-18 years be making the same demands on her if she wanted to get ahead in the business.

This is how crazy the left has become, a liberal women so dislikes Trump that she would have been willing to not only let Weinstein’s crime be unexposed and unpunished but would have been OK with him being allowed to obtain new victims for the sake of keeping him Trump of the White House.

So for those who you Hate Trump but are outraged over Weinstein I have two questions for you:

Would the price of Weinstein never being exposed have been worth it to you if it meant Hillary Clinton beating Donald Trump in 2016?

If the answer to the first question is yes: At what number of new women victimized by Mr. Weinstein would that price become too high?

I think these two question really give this story the perspective it deserves don’t you and I’d love to see a roving reporter asking these question to a bunch of women’s studies majors at liberal universities across the nation wouldn’t you?

I’ll give the last word to Thomas Wictor


As I have no sexual secrets of rich liberals to keep for a price I have to make my buck by going places and doing interviews all the time hoping people like it enough to pay for it.

This video revealing deliberate bias at the NYT is likely the least shocking thing I’ve ever seen

But that being said the timing here is perfect. Right now the left is reeling from their silence over the Weinstein business, it will be a lot of fun asking those same people if they knew the Times was doing this kind of thing.

Final thought. Normally the MSM completely ignores these Project Veritas videos but once President Trump starting tweeting this out it will be impossible for the press to do so. And if he connects the silence in the newsrooms on Weinstein with the silence on this kind of bias, this could be the a permanent game changer.
