“I only know this is wrong.”

Star Trek: The Next Generation
“Yesterday’s Enterprise”

I’m a sucker for time-travel stories. Whether it’s Harry Potter, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Back to the Future, Stephen King’s 11/22/63 or anything else, a good story about the hero traveling back in time and affecting (or restoring) “the timeline” is one of my favorite diversions. If the plot is clever and resolves itself well, I’m even willing to put up with hokey dialog and two-dimensional characters. I just love it when a story, which can easily open itself to paradox, cliché and deus ex machina anti-climax, manages to apply self-consistent logic and arrive at an exciting, thought-provoking and satisfying ending.

Of course, we know that time travel is impossible. You can’t go back in time and murder your grandfather, there are no alternate universes and there is no grand government conspiracy hiding an actual time travel device so we just think it’s impossible. But that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to change the past, at least not if you’re a progressive, or whatever term the left chooses to apply to itself. The only hard part is getting yourself into a position to do it, such as becoming a Supreme Court Justice.

If you’re like me, and believe that words have meanings and expect that logical self-consistency is essential for any set of laws to make sense, then you would agree that once a law is passed it’s meaning should remain constant until such time as the legislature chooses to amend or repeal the law. That’s a pretty basic feature of any “government of laws, not of men.” The problem, as the left sees it, is that our Constitution was set up to make it hard to change the law, but we conservatives see this as a feature, not a bug.

The way the Constitution says you change a law is to advocate for the change and convince the legislature to pass the amendment, get it approved by the other house and have the president sign it into law. But that can be difficult since (ideally) each legislator is beholden to a constituency (those pesky “we the people” again), so they have to convince them that it’s a good idea too. If they can’t, then they may get voted out in the next election. At least, that’s how it’s supposed to work. What if there were an easier way?

Let’s suppose that time travel were actually possible. Our legislative crusader could go back in time, maybe to the Constitutional Convention, and actually advocate to change the Constitution. Maybe convince James Madison that the first amendment should include that phrase “Congress shall make no law limiting the ability of a mother to kill her unborn child at any time during her pregnancy.” Then the Supreme Court never would have had to wrestle with the abortion question in Roe v. Wade.

Instead, the left has discovered that Legislative Time Travel is much easier. All they have to do is decide what policy they want to enact and then declare that the meaning of the appropriate legislation is actually different from what everyone thought it was originally, and – surprise! – it actually means just what it needs to mean to enact whatever policy they want. They did it with abortion, they did it with gay “marriage” and now they’re doing it with “transgenderism.” Instead of going back in time and convincing Madison, all they have to say is “Madison really meant whatever I wish he’d meant.”

And the Obama administration doesn’t even have to go back that far. By reinterpreting Title IX to include the nebulous term “gender identity” they have the chutzpah to tell legislators, many of whom are still around, that the law they passed to prohibit discrimination based on sex now means something completely different.

So now we find ourselves in an alternate reality where laws are no longer logically self-consistent, since “gender identity” is completely subjective and this made-up interpretation of plainly written law is now in direct contradiction of the First Amendment in forcing churches and religious organizations and employers to go against the practice of their faith (i.e. the free exercise of their religion) to accommodate what the American College of Pediatricians has classified as a psychological disorder.

Since we don’t believe in Legislative Time Travel, we need representatives who will follow the Constitution and not just make things up as they go along. Since Clinton has pledged to be Obama’s third term, we can expect more of the same if she is elected. It says a lot about how far left Clinton and the democrats have become that Donald Trump is actually the candidate who is more likely to restore our timeline to one that make sense.

There are few thing I enjoy more than re-watching the 2004 ALCS series starting with the 9th inning of game 4.

Even twelve years later and with three world series in the bag. The 2004 ALCS is special. It brings a smile to the face and a tear to the eye and it all began with the greatest stolen base in Red Sox History:

and ended with Big Papi knocking it out.

Now for Red Sox fans like myself the great comeback of 2004 is particularly special because it was our first world series win. That first championship is always the greatest.

I’m sure this isn’t unique to Red Sox fans. 1969 was the first championship for the Met and the 1969 Miracle Mets as some might have forgotten came back from behind to take the East from the Chicago Cubs and then swept Atlanta to win their first pennant.

Yes that’s a young Nolan Ryan who was to win his only World Series Ring of his incredible career with those Miracle Mets.

And if you go back even further in 1951 the then NY Giants were 12 1/2 back in August and 4 1/2 games back with ten to play and managed to come back and take the Pennant.

Now All of these teams and comebacks are legendary and every baseball fan knows them. Do you know the reason why?

Because they are exceptions.

Nobody talks about the seasons when the Yankees dominated in the 90’s or the Reds in 1976 or the 1973 Oakland A’s not because they weren’t great teams but because thing happened as expected.

And that brings us to the election results tonight.

As of this writing Massachusetts, Georgia, Virginia and Alabama and Tennessee have all gone for Donald Trump and when CNN reported that GOP donors are getting together to get money together to stop him Jake Tapper just said “Why don’t they wait till after the inauguration?”

At the same time as the GOP Establishment is doing this many of my fellow conservative activists are talking about the same thing stopping Trump or suggesting that he’s in trouble to wit

Now as I’ve said over and Over I’m a Ted Cruz guy. I voted for him today and I urge all voters to vote for Ted as the best candidate to secure the border, stop Obamacare, I’m glad he’s leading in Texas and exit polls look good in Oklahoma which would be one more state than the MSM was projecting and I’d be delighted for him to come back and win the nomination.

But I understand that such a comeback would be in the same class as the 2004 Red Sox , the 1969 Mets and the 1951 Giants and have no intention of pretending otherwise and I hope the Ted Cruz campaign does the same because you can’t get to where you want to go unless you understand where you are.

Now I don’t expect the Establishment GOP to tell the truth but I’m really bothered to see my fellow conservative activists retreat to their safe spaces

Cue south Park

Strax: Sir, permission to express my opposition to your current apathy?
11th Doctor: Permission granted.
Strax: Sir, I am opposed to your current apathy.

Doctor Who:  The Snowmen 2012

The few days have been dominated by the Trump and Glenn Reynolds explains why in Brief

If the responsible people would talk about these issues, and take action, Trump wouldn’t take up so much space.

While the NY Post explains in more detail:

America has been the target of at least 74 Islamist plots or attacks since 9/11 — the most recent being San Bernardino. These include at least 16 in New York.

You see the problem with reality is that no amount of denial makes it less real so when Trump says

We have places in London so radicalised that police are afraid for their lives.’

no amount of pushback

Within moments the Met Police, Prime Minister David Cameron, and the clownish Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, jumped to defend the reputation of the UK and distance themselves from this glaring truth.

Changes the actual truth:

A Lancashire Police officer told MailOnline: ‘There are Muslim areas of Preston that, if we wish to patrol, we have to contact local Muslim community leaders to get their permission’. 

One officer from Yorkshire said on the online forum Police.Community: ‘I’m not allowed to travel in half blues to work anymore IN MY OWN CAR as we’re ‘All at risk of attack’ – yet as soon as someone points out the obvious it’s ‘divisive.’

that real people live.

And people will continue to live these truths until someone shakes them out of their apathy.

Last Wednesday in a Rose Garden ceremony Vice President Joe Biden, with President Obama at his side, announced that he will not be a candidate for president in 2016, although he certainly sounded like one.

And Biden heralded art of compromise in his address.

I believe we have to end the divisive partisan politics that is ripping this country apart. And I think we can. It’s mean-spirited. It’s petty. And it’s gone on for much too long. I don’t believe, like some do, that it’s naïve to talk to Republicans. I don’t think we should look at Republicans as our enemies. They are our opposition; they’re not our enemies. And for the sake of the country, we have to work together.

Eloquent words. But as hollow as a carved pumpkin.

The definition of compromise that contemporary Democrats believe in is that they hold fast to their positions while calling on Republicans to change their stands. If they don’t liberals label them obstructionists or worse. Examples? Obama has called his political opponents “hostage takers” and “enemies.” His still-unpopular ObamaCare law was passed by Congress with no Republican votes.

Illinois state capitol
Illinois state capitol, Springfield

Prior to his election as president Obama was a US senator from Illinois, nominally representing me in Washington. His predecessor was Peter Fitzgerald, a Republican. Like Obama, Fitzgerald moved up from the Illinois state Senate to to the US Capitol and for two years he served with the future president in Springfield.

Here’s what Fitzgerald said about Obama’s state Senate days in 2008.

He was a very partisan and ideological Democrat who represented a district that really was probably 90 percent Democrat, and certainly I saw him as reflective of his district in that he was just one of those state senators from Chicago who viewed the Democratic party as being right 100 percent of the time and the Republican party wrong 100 percent of the time. He’s not one to work across party lines.

Yet in last week’s Rose Garden speech, Biden parroted the myth that his boss believes that “compromise is not a dirty word.”

But in reality Obama has his own definition of what compromise and that is “I win and you lose.”

There is what I call the turnpike effect: You get on the turnpike and it looks like yours is the only car on the turnpike, but five minutes later thousands of cars are buzzing all around you.

The last few weeks have had that effect on me. I normally focus on news from Latin America (which are usually grim), and rarely on non-political U.S. news, so it’s not like there aren’t enough crazy news to go around. It’s just that I don’t pay attention to them. However, now is the “What are you, nuts?” time.

In the past couple of weeks three stories have been high enough on the news cycle that I have decided to lump in the “What are you, nuts?” category:

1. Jenner, whether you go by Caitlyn or Bruce, is as much of a woman as I.

2. Rachel Dolezal is more black than Justice Clarence Thomas.

3. It was OK to allow the Clinton jail escapees wear street clothes.

On item #1, old news by now, but I am sympathetic to Jenner, and pray that the Lord help him find peace. However, the cold fact remains that a person with the Y chromosome who sires six children and retains all of his original factory-installed equipment is not a woman, no matter that the person has a glamour cover on Vanity Fair wearing thousands of dollars’ worth of make-up, hair, and clothes. It’s one thing for Jenner to decide to undergo a costly and most painful transition to live as a woman; it’s another thing altogether to insist that we all regard it as an accomplished biological fact.

On item #2, again, Dolezal’s may choose to live as a person of any race. However, Dolezal’s background by now shows a long history of lies (even a lawsuit), which point, at best, to the possibility of a mental disorder. The implication that she’s “more black” than Justice Thomas, who grew up in the segregated South, firmly deserves a place in the “What are you, nuts?” file.

Then there are Matt and Sweat (you couldn’t come up with a better-named duo if you tried), the two escapees who are still at large. In spite of their violent antecedents dating back to adolescence, the two were granted prison privileges that included the benefit of wearing street clothes. Yes,

I know the argument for allowing a man like that to benefit from the usual rewards for good behavior in prison. It goes like this: he’s there for life, or at least many many many years, and there needs to be some possibility of rewards for his cooperation or he’s going to make the place miserable the whole time. Having no rewards at all increases his dangerousness because he has nothing to lose by acting just as bad as he can, and nothing to gain by acting better.

But street clothes?  “What are you, nuts?”

And let’s add one to the list, while we’re at it: Donald Trump is a Republican. “What are you, nuts?”

To paraphrase Pete, there’s a right to self-delusion; there’s also a right to not play along.

There remains one sobering fact, above all:

Above all, the fixation on Caitlyn Jenner and Flozell of Spokane at a time when Chinese hackers are stealing state secrets with impunity; when the Chinese, Iranians, and Russians are laughing at our military; when our economy is being sustained only by massive Government borrowing (that can go on forever, right?) shows that, as a culture, we no longer care about Serious Things. We have lost sight of what matters, and instead are locked into a cycle of self-validation through self-gratification and fixation on frivolous identity culture.

Fausta Rodriguez Wertz writes on U.S. and Latin American politics, news and culture at Fausta’s Blog

it would seem so.

We are bombarded daily with news that even a few short years ago would have been unimaginable.

A recent article in Salon written by an abortion worker refers to an aborted baby as an “unwanted growth” and by removing it they “preserved the woman’s chosen course.”  Seeing tiny arms and legs floating in a bowl made her even more pro-choice pro-abortion.

Planned Parenthood, the leading abortion provider in the country, tweeted that they thought telling girls to protect their character on prom night was “despicable.”

And the latest Gallup poll states:

Americans are more likely now than in the early 2000’s to find a variety of behaviors morally acceptable, including gay and lesbian relations, having a baby outside of marriage, and sex between an unmarried man and woman. Moral acceptability of many of these issues is now at a record-high level. source

One glaring observation of this poll is that while support for abortion has gone up by three points, support for the death penalty has gone down by the same three points.

To see these findings in action, I need go no further than my own very conservative area where the illegitimate birth rate among teenagers has skyrocketed. Marriage is no longer important, and multiple children by different fathers is common.

Marriage and family, the bedrock of a civilized nation, is all but destroyed.  I have no doubt that when the Supreme Court issues it’s ruling on same-sex “marriage”, it will come down on the side of the homosexuals, thereby completely changing the definition of marriage.

Benjamin Franklin emphasized that without virtue, free societies could not properly function.  He said, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”

When was the last time you even heard the word “virtue”?  If people conformed to accepted virtues, none of what is going on would be possible.

There is much talk on many sites, usually the ones focused on the economy, about some big event coming along to collapse our country.  Trust me on this, it won’t happen like that.  In fact, it’s already happening and has been for decades.  The slow drip of immorality and depravity has already transformed our country into something most of us don’t recognize anymore.

The elites don’t want a collapse, they want slaves who will be willing to do their bidding.

John Adams, in a letter dated October 11, 1798, to the Officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts said:

[…]we have no government, armed with power, capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

I have no intention of being anyone’s slave, and I hope you don’t either.

On Facebook I saw a liberal friend call the what-has-she-accomplished? attacks on Hillary Clinton “absurd.” Actually this is the best argument against HRC’s candidacy for president, although I can see why progressives are perplexed by this criticism. Libs’ minds are wired into whether people have the correct opinions and the right intentions. But of course no one cares if your trash collectors are Republicans or Democrats–you only care if that garbage is gone from your driveway once a week.

We’ve all worked with an office know-it-all, the person who can’t hack his own job but has plenty of ideas on how he can do a better job than his boss. All he–or she of course–needs is a promotion and the power to shine. On the rare occasion I’ve seen that complainer move up the ladder, the result was predictable, failure.

Because having great ideas and vision is only part of what is needed to be successful. You need to have skills to convince others that your course of action is the best–and to have patience to maintain alliances if initially confronted with failure. The concept of the philosopher-king is a myth.

Last week on MSNBC, Mark Halperin asked ten Iowa Democrats who are Hillary Clinton supporters to name one of her accomplishments while serving in the Obama administration. They couldn’t name any.

Seven years earlier on the same network, Chris Matthews asked a Texas state senator a similar question about Barack Obama–he was stumped too.

As for Obama’s record as president, we can look at a resurgent an anti-American Russia, the rise of ISIS, green energy failures, and a moribund economy. Obama’s biggest achievement is the still unpopular ObamaCare law–one that could be stripped down next month by the Supreme Court.

Americans: Do you really want four more years of an unaccomplished president? Can we afford it?

Duncan:  It doesn’t have to be public as long as everybody knows

Yes Minister:  Party Games 1984

 

This weekend everyone was all a twitter about the Saudi’s intention to arm themselves with Nuclear Weapons to answer the Obama enabled mullahs of Iran.

But unlike the Iranians who decided to develop their own program the Saudi’s being glutted with the wealth that comes from having only to poke a hole in the ground to find it are looking at a quicker route:

Saudi Arabia has invested in Pakistani nuclear weapons projects, and believes it could obtain atomic bombs at will, a variety of sources have told BBC Newsnight.

While the kingdom’s quest has often been set in the context of countering Iran’s atomic programme, it is now possible that the Saudis might be able to deploy such devices more quickly than the Islamic republic.

Now given the effect of Obama’s retreat in Iraq, and the results of the Ukrainian surrender of their nukes the Saudi move is a prudent one but there is an obvious question worth asking.

Since 1947 the arab nations of the area have insisted the Israel is the greatest danger to peace, an aggressor out to enslave arabs and until 1973 fought multiple wars in an attempt to destroy them.

While Israel did not publicly admit it, the entire Arab world suspected that Israel had the bomb , and the first unofficial confirmation came out in 1986 meaning that they have known Israel had nukes for at least 30 years.

Yet the knowledge that the scourge of humanity, the country that the UN condemns more than any other.  The state that Arabs the world over consider the ultimate aggressor at knowledge did not compel the Saudi’s to either develop or buy the bomb.

Why not?

There is lot of talk that comes from our friends on the left, about the threat of Israel but the only crisis that Israel nukes brought to the middle east was arresting of the potential of Arabs to slaughter Jews en masse.  And Arab nations for all their talk acted accordingly

Compare this to how Arab nations are reacting to a potential nuclear bomb.

Glenn Reynolds often says this Global Warming:  “I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who keep telling me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.”

The Saudis/Arabs never acted like Israel with a bomb for 30+ years was a crisis because for all their talk they knew it was not.

Now with the Iranians about to get the bomb the Saudi’s are acting like it’s a crisis.

Reality always trumps rhetoric

I never Knew the New Republic did comedy because this argument by Brian Beutler is a joke.

Rand Paul’s Petulance With Reporters Will Ruin Him

Now in fairness to Mr. Beutler, you can make a case that Mr. Paul has been more flexible in his positions and to some degree his article makes that case

Paul went on to suggest his old view—that we should not provide foreign aid to Israel—isn’t in contradiction with his new view: that foreign aid should be phased out, starting with antagonistic countries and working back to Israel, because “ultimately all nations should be free of foreign aid because we shouldn’t borrow money to do it.”

However attacking the Senator for the difference between his ideal (the elimination of foreign aid) and the steps that are politically possible to move in that direction (elimination of foreign aid to our enemies) is a weak argument as selling what is currently possible while making the case to the people for the next step is the way an intelligent pol creates change.

But in terms of sheer nonsense that pales before the argument that not being friendly to reporters is going to ruin him.

When he shushes a reporter or scolds her for talking over him, his loyalists don’t see an otherwise talented politician unable to hide his annoyance. They eat it up. In their minds Paul is the rare politician who’ll bite back at reporters when they supposedly expose their biases. But asking questions that other conservatives continue to raise reveals no bias. What it reveals is that, for all his natural talent, Paul can’t reconcile his beliefs with his ambitions. That’s a huge problem for a national politician. It will define his candidacy.

This is nonsense for two significant reasons.

The first is the most obvious, no matter how many times as a Republican you go along with a reporters meme or make concessions to their opinions, the reality is the goal of the Mainstream media is your defeat and if you are a strong conservative not just your defeat you but discredit you.

Making accommodations with people who want to destroy you is analogous to the Iran deal a denial of reality that will in the end only make things worse.

That argument alone justifies Senator Paul statements but there is a second less obvious point that is even more decisive.  The media as an institution is not trusted by the public as Gallup noted during while discussing the Brian Williams fiasco:

Will this affect Americans’ trust in the media? It could, but it’s important to keep in mind that such trust is already as low as it has been since Gallup began measuring it.

Each September we track a measure of trust in “…the mass media, such as newspapers, TV and radio — when it comes to reporting the news fully, accurately and fairly…” The accompanying graph shows the trend since 1997, with the “great deal”/”fair amount” of trust category dropping from as high as 55% in 1999 to a low of 40% both in 2012 and in 2014.

In other words six in ten Americans don’t trust the MSM in fact according to Gallup’s chart less than one in five Americans trust Television or Internet news quite a lot or more and Newspapers only manage to produce that level of trust from 22% of Americans.

In fact not only are media trusted less than Banks but only 38% of independents and 54% of Democrats have even a fair amount of trust of the media.

That being the case when Rand Paul expresses public distrust in the media the most likely reaction from the majority of the voting public is going to be agreement

Will it be enough to win Senator Paul the nomination?  Of course not, but disdain for the media can only help Rand Paul with voters and only someone from the media could fail to understand this.

As you might guess we don’t do a lot of celebrity news here at DaTechGuy blog but a few days ago at Live at five there was a piece on Kate Hudson that caught my eye.concerning Kate Hudson.

Now before we go any farther let’s stipulate for the record that it’s a neutral objective fact that the 35-year-old Ms. Hudson is a desirable woman that any man would be happy to have at his side, not a big surprise as her mother Goldie Hawn was a beautiful woman (she’s just turned 69 last week, boy am I old)

In an age when everybody is turning to surgery, pills  & fad diets Ms. hudson has a method of maintaining a competitive physical shape that openly reinforces uncomfortable truth.

“You [have to] work your ass off, that’s the only way. [And] you have to eat right,”

Furthermore it’s a question of consistency:

“I wouldn’t say [I work out] a lot, just consistently…People think for some reason you have to work out for two and a half hours…but, it can be little. It can be 20 minutes, it could be 40 minutes, but you have to [get it in],” she said. “You can’t do like two weeks and go like do two days and then take a week off and then do three days and then go, ‘Why aren’t I [seeing results?] I don’t get it.’ You know, you just got to do it — sad, like anything else in life!”

Obviously as a person who doesn’t work out & eats wrong (but better than I once did) my opinion on health is not worth much so why am I bringing this up?

Because this applies to almost every single endeavor in life, from writing, to any kind of business to politics.  People keep looking for a quick score or an angle it reminds me of what Max Hastings wrote about 3rd world armies who simply can’t get it through their heads the reality of relentless training as the secret to the success of British & American forces from his book The Battle for the Falklands

They all secretly believe that there is some pill you can take if you will tell them what it is.

But like those third world armies such as the arabs who routinely lost wars to Israel and to the mill if you are looking to get into Kate Hudson shape there is a simple answer

Hudson told Us. “Everybody wants some sort of secret and there just isn’t, it’s just you have to work out.”

It’s like the 10 commandments, easy rules are always the hardest to follow.

This is an important life lesson that’s worth learning
