Presidential candidate Marianne Williamson (D) revealed that she did not think the left was “so mean” and “lied like this” until she ran for president as an outsider candidate.
“I know this sounds naive. I didn’t think the left was so mean. I didn’t think the left lied like this,” Williamson told the New Yorker’s David Remnick in an interview. “I thought the right did that. I thought we were better.”
Williamson accused the left of lying about her use of crystals and “crystal gazing,” telling Remnick that there has “never been a crystal on stage” at any of her events and “there is no crystal” in her home.
She accused those on the left of also falsely accusing her of having told AIDS patients not to take their medicines or implying that “lovelessness” causes diseases and “love” is “enough to cure their diseases.”
“I’m Jewish, I go to the doctor,” Williamson said, ripping those on the left for labeling her as an anti-science candidate who does not believe in modern medicine.
Williamson has in recent weeks criticized the “political-media industrial complex” and warned Democrats that nominating a conventional or establishment candidate to go up against President Donald Trump in 2020 could be disastrous.
Environmentalists are emphasizing their concern about the amount of plastic being dumped into the ocean and it’s effects on the earth’s ecology.
ALSO IN THE NEWS –
Oceanic scientists are warning that the 107 year old wreck of the 52,310 ton passenger liner, RMS Titanic, may disappear in as little as 20 years as a result of the depredations of iron eating bacteria on the bottom of the ocean. FILM AT 11:00.
Well, the NY Times has decided to make the ongoing theme of their paper slavery. The project is called “1619.” That’s the year the first slaves were brought to “America.”
Well, I’ve got a news flash for the pin heads who run the Times. Slavery came to North America about 13,000 years ago when the first Asians crossed from Asia into today’s Alaska. The Injuns (Native Americans) enslaved other Injuns. And they didn’t need to learn it from the White man. And when White Europeans came to North America, Injuns enslaved them as the opportunity presented itself. In the antebellum South 10,000 Black slaves were owned by other Blacks. One of the most feared slave owners was a Black who was also a slave breeder. This was a practice frowned upon by most White slave owners.
Slavery was a part of life all over the world and still is today in some places. Asians owned slaves. Black Africans owned slaves. And, yes, Whites owned slaves. It is noteworthy, however, that the first to try to limit and then eliminate slavery were the Whites of England – the same people primarily responsible for creating the United States. And the descendants of those Brits fought a war to free the slaves at the cost of a half million mostly White citizens’ lives.
So all you nit wit liberals need to actually learn a bit from actual real history. Especially those of you who work for the Times.
Hiroshima and THE BOMB !
PBS in Maryland carries a Japanese network on its 4th sub-channel. Today they’ve had several segments crying and moaning about the atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. You’ll excuse me if I am not impressed nor, for that matter, overwhelmed with feelings of guilt about it. That does not mean I do not have empathy for those who died, were injured or lost love ones.
I also have empathy for the millions of Asian civilians who were brutally murdered by Japanese forces trying to subdue Asia. This would include Chinese civilians who participated contests between Japanese soldiers to see which soldier could cut off the most heads in a given period of time. It would also include American, Dutch, Filipino and British military who fell into the cruel hands of Japanese captors. So, too, would I have empathy for thousands and thousands of young Korean girls forced to serve Japanese soldiers as “Comfort Women” (aka sex slaves) to service Japanese soldiers – often brutally.
One of the segments showed a Caucasian woman sobbing during a tour of a Japanese Hiroshima Museum. Too bad there is no Japanese WW2 Atrocity Museum. I’d like to see that woman’s reaction to a Chinese baby impaled on a Japanese bayonet being waved back and forth like a flag.
OK, there it is right there at 636 E 35th St, Chicago, IL. It is a giant monument to slavery advocate Stephen Douglas. Maybe they gave him such tall monument because he was so tiny both physically and morally. There are probably a dozen other monuments to this moral pipsqueak around the country. Leftist historians have been trying to get him off the hook for his leadership in the fight for slavery for many years. But his opponent in the 1860 presidential campaign, one Abraham Lincoln, pegged him as one of the 4 greatest proponents of slavery in the US.
It is quite curious then that the black uniformed fascist imbeciles of “ANTIFA” have shown not the teeniest tiniest interest in ridding society of this monster. They would rather attack the poor Confederate schlubs who were mostly dirt poor farmers and never even owned a slave, but who have been memorialized in some kind of public display to recognize their sacrifices.
BTW, our nation is also littered with monuments to the other 3 slavery advocates identified by Lincoln – Roger Taney, Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan. Those monuments, too, seem quite safe from the wrath of ANTIFA.
For 4 days after a number of obscene crimes in Baltimore, Cummings had nothing to say. But within 2 hours of Trump’s tweets he found his voice. Baltimore is one of the most violent and corrupt cities in the US and everybody in Baltimore knows it. But Trump points it out and suddenly every Democrat considers it Eden. Let’s make this simple for the Trump haters – YOU NAMED A “YOUTH EMPOWERMENT CENTER” AFTER A DRUG DEALER. And that was after the City States Attorney tried to railroad a bunch of Cops in relation to the whole thing. Baltimore, Philly, Chicago et al are just part of the Democratic Party Plantation System (the DPPS). What more needs to be said.
If you’ve read my Blog entry about climate change at
you may recall that scientists – real scientists – say that the earth has been in an”ice age” for several million years. In the last 350,000 years the earth has experienced 3 and a half cycles consisting of 3 “glacial maximums” – periods where the earth’s temperature has dropped very low and 4 “glacial minimums” (AKA “interglacials”) wherein the temperature became warm.
The glacial minimum we are currently in today has been characterized by rising temperatures that began at the end of the last glacial maximum about 20,000 years ago. The temperature of the earth today is still nearly 3 degrees COOLER than the average peak temperature for the previous 3 glacial minimums.
During the previous glacial minimum, about 125,000 years ago, enough ice had melted so that a thick layer of coral reef formed about 25 feet above today’s sea level. BTW, that could only happen if the sea level was 25 feet higher than it is today. That layer has been quarried for over 100 years to build municipal buildings in Miami. If you can track down one of those buildings today you can touch a coral reef that prospered 125,000 years ago. Even then, 125,000 years ago, the temperature had already peaked 3 degrees higher than today’s temperature and it was beginning to cool down.
That was the beginning of the glacial maximum between the glacial minimum I just described above and today’s glacial minimum that we are in today. That glacial maximum reached its lowest point about 20,000 years ago. By then enough water had been locked up in ice so that 17 million cubic miles of ice were sitting on the North American continent. The weight of that ice is estimated as 68,000 trillion tons. Almost all of that ice came from the ocean and so the sea level was about 470 feet lower than today. What we call “Florida” today had about three times as much land area as it does today and off the coast of Miami there is a dead coral reef 450 feet below today’s sea level. Keep all that information about Florida in mind the next time you hear that global climate warming change will cause flooded beach-side streets in Miami to submerge.
You may have heard of an event about a 1000 years ago called “the little ice age.” Keep in mind that although we are in a series of up and down temperature cycles, there are constant interruptions where temps go up during a cooling cycle and vice versa. In fact, the little ice age is dwarfed by an interruption in the current warming cycle about 12,000 years ago (a blink of the eye) when the earth’s temp dropped more than it did during the little ice age in less than 100 years and stayed that way for 1000 years.
