Must Reads For The Week 5/19/18

Dixon High School Shooting: Officer Saves Lives, Shoots, Wounds Ex-Student, at Time.com. Good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with gun. There wasn’t much coverage about this attempted school shooting. It doesn’t fit the main stream media narrative about guns.

The Media Coverage Of The Israeli-Palestinian Clash Is Built On Myths, by David Harsanyi, at thefederalist.com. Excerpt from the article: “No matter how often Hamas tells us that rioters on the Israel-Gaza border are armed, most of the media keeps referring to them as “protesters” and “demonstrators.” No matter how often Hamas acknowledges that rioters are part of a broader “war,” the media simply won’t report it as such. And no matter how often those rioters tell reporters they want to “kill” and “burn” Jews inside Israel, left-wing journalists and pundits still frame Israel as the aggressor.

Global Warming: Media Ignore Sharp Drop In Global Temperatures Over Past Two Years, at investors.com. What the main stream media doesn’t cover is just as telling, if not more telling, as what they do cover. This doesn’t fit their vision of the world.

Media Hate Trump So Much, They’re Willing To Defend MS-13, by Joey Wulfsohn, at thefederalist.com. Just another example of the main stream media at work.

The “Fake News” Story Is Fake, at zerohedge.com. The main stream media has lost its monopoly on the information people have access to. The internet has allowed people more access to information than was ever thought possible. The internet busted their monopoly. So the MSM’s answer to the loss of their monopoly is to just paint themselves deeper into their leftist corner.

Kayne And Dems, by Walter E. Williams, at jewishworldreview.com. Excerpt from the article: “West’s support for Trump, along with his criticism of the “plantation” mentality of the Democratic Party, has been met with vicious backlash from the left. The bottom-line sin that West has committed is questioning the hegemony of the Democratic Party among black Americans. The backlash has been so bad that West had to hire personal security to protect him against threats made against his life.”

“Kanye West is not saying anything different from what Dr. Thomas Sowell, Larry Elder, Jason Riley, I and other black libertarians/conservatives have been saying or decades. In fact, West has tweeted quotations from Sowell, such as “Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it” and “The most basic question is not what is best but who shall decide what is best.” Tweeting those Sowell  quotations represents the highest order of blasphemy in the eyes of leftist.

Millennial Candidates Embrace Socialism, While Venezuela Chokes On It, by Doug French, at mises.org. Socialism is not a new idea. It goes back centuries and has been a proven failure. So why do millennials think it is such a good idea? Because our education system promotes socialist central planning and discredits free markets.

Broke Illinois Pension System Leaves Every Resident With $11,000 Debt, at zerohedge.com. Individuals in State government have created this crisis because they have underfunded these pensions. Why? The incentives of the political system is to cave in to government unions.

Yes, Carbon And Other Taxes Make Gas Ridiculously Expensive, by Robert P. Murphy, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article: Excerpt from the article:  “Americans should be very suspicious when intellectuals tell them that a carbon tax won’t be very painful or disruptive to the economy. Besides the obvious lessons from history—when has a government ever been modest with raising revenues through a new tax?—we can also point out that the point of a carbon tax is to alter people’s behavior, by making their current lifestyle so expensive that they have no choice but to change it.”

California Kids’ Math Achievement Took A Nosedive After Common Core, by Joy Pullmann, at thefederalist.com. The Federal Government pushed Common Core. Now look at the results. Bur they will never admit their mistake. They will probably double down.

Stop Calling The GOP The Party Of Small Government, by Veronique de Rugy, at reason.com. Government has grown under GOP control. The only way to shrink government is to primary out every big government republican in the House and Senate. And replace them with candidates who think like Freedom Caucus members.

More On My Efforts To Advance Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion And End Gender Discrimination In Michigan, by Mark J. Perry, at carpediemblog. Mark J. Perry is catching the leftest in their own Title IX trap. The University of Michigan is currently reviewing possible violations of Title IX nondiscrimination policies. But this discrimination is against men and gender nonconforming students.

Campus Kangaroo Courts Finally Used Against Women, by Ashe Schow, at thefederalist.com. A male student has accused a female student of sexual assault. Apparently he was to drunk to ‘consent’ to sexual activity. Just like male students who are wrongly accused, she is suing the University of Cincinnati for violating her 14th amendment right to due process. How absurd is all this getting?

Why Trump Is A President Like No Other, by Victor Davis Hanson, at amgreatness.com. Victor Davis Hanson reviews Conrad Black’s book about Donald Trump. It gives great insight into why Trump does what he does. I’ve said before that Trump is playing  a different game than the game political, bureaucratic and media insiders have always played. After two years they still don’t understand what game he is playing. It’s as if he is playing hockey on their golf course.

Donald Trump’s Critics Face Blowback, by Victor Davis Hanson, at nationalreview.com. The “Deep State” is getting caught in the traps that they tried to spring on Trump.
