That teaches me to rely on the Jerusalem post, its getting to be almost as bad as haaretz, on some things.

So there is no story, so it should be in cartoon strip.

I changed radio stations today and landed in the middle of the Pelosi thing, and until I caught the context of what was being said, I thought I was hearing a Ruth Gordon audio clip.

Pelosi: "Tell them you're a Muslim, Tell them you're a Muslim!"

For a little distraction from the wretched Berkeley news I learned that daddy’s favorite legal secretary Barbara Hale AKA Della Street passed away January 26, 2017 at the age of 94.

I found this out because I’m watching Mannix on MeTV and was curious about it’s star Mike Connors passed away the same day at the age of 91.

Interesting that Connors lived that long because he smoked like a chimney on his famous TV show :-)

The majority of the "refugees" that we are obligated to take from Australia are Iranians.

Val Jar must have personally negotiated that deal.

Omigod, Powerline has a minute and a half of May and Corbyn; here she is: 'He could lead a protest, I am leading a country'.

I presume these weren't 'boat people'.

Hmmm, some Iranians no longer welcome in Iran may be welcome here. I would inspect carefully the body cavities of the wooden Persian horse, however.

The WS article is about Decius, who wrote "The Flight 93 Election," easily the most important opinion piece of the last year IMO.

He has been revealed to be Michael Anton, age 47, former W speechwriter (16 words), now working for Trump as a national security adviser (the position Monica Crowley was to have had).

Wild.

Also interesting is that Anton was Guiliani's press secretary and speechwriter.

He left Guiliani to work for Bush right after 9/11.

Are you surprised?

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/02/science-experts-say-liberals-not-conservatives-psychotic/
The American Journal of Political Science published a correction several months back saying that it made a serious error in one of it’s published papers.

The error? The paper originally said that conservative political beliefs are linked to “psychoticism,” but it turns out that liberal political beliefs are the ones that are linked to psychoticism.

And explains why his posts have fallen off--I guess he's kind of busy.

Trump tweet: Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!

Miss Marple,

That decision to take in the people Australia won't take in never has made a lick of sense to me. I understand Australia refusing to take them in, since it is in line with their stated policy of not accepting any more illegals by sea. The thinking is that if they don't take them in, the word will definitely get out that Australia as an option is closed, and less folks will then try to come in. When they have tried to come in, many die in the attempt, and exhaust resources etc, so Australia is sticking to their policy and won't take any more. Okay, I understand that. Like it or not, that policy makes sense.

By why do we take them in? With 20 countries between there and here, including all the island groups in the Pacific, why us? How about New Zealand? Or Malaysia? or Singapore? or China? Or Fiji? Or New Caledonia? Or Japan? Or Russia? Or Vietnam? Or Canada? Or Mexico? Or Chile? Or Peru? Or whomever? Why us? What did we get for bailing Australia out by agreeing to take them in?

If the answer is we got nothing, but "It's he Christian thing to do," why isn't it the Christian thing for all these other countries to do it? I recall Dem Talking Head Jessica Tarlov saying that the reason we had to take in the 60,000 unvetted Syrian refuge's that Hillary and Obama wanted to bring in was because "it was the Christian thing to do." That was the reasoning of the Left. Yet your other link above to FrontPage mag has Obama saying this:

This is a far different response than that given by Barrack Hussein Obama back in November 2015. Then, as president, he lashed out against the idea of giving preference to Christian refugees, describing it as “shameful”: “That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion,” Obama had added.

So we are in the completely schizophrenic situation of having to take in Muslims because "it's the Christian thing to do," but not being allowed to take in Christians because that would somehow be un-American.

Trump I am sure will catch mega-grief from the media for his tweets today, but I'm glad he said it. Lets get the topic out there. And what, by the way, besides yelling Alahu Akbar, is "the Muslim thing to do?

Since they covered their faces like the cowards they are, no one really knows that.

Berkeley and other universities are on notice: protect your campuses or face the consequences.

President Trump, at prayer meeting, pointing out how Ahnold's Apprentice ratings were "down the tubes". I'm not sure if God had something to do with it. I don't mind his off-topic comments at all, especially since it makes lefty heads explode.

Halloween '15-5000 riot at Berkeley near fraternity row - "rock and bottles" thrown at police - "Sunday morning, three people had been booked: one for misdemeanor battery, one for a DUI, and another for public intoxication. There were reports of supposed gunshots, but police were heard over the scanner saying they believed they were fireworks."

Obviously, students feel free to run wild, throw objects at police, burn vehicles, etc., with impunity and the added joy of seeing themselves on national tv.

Davod

If this was a right wing protest the governor would have the University, city, and county police and the National Guard protecting the university and the audience. Left wing/anarchist protest - University police to ensure the audience does not get to rowdy.

I would say that the police were probably operating under the DOJ principle of "Let the protesters get it off their chests"

Miss Marple,

I've spent much more time in Berkeley than in Indy, but if you take the amount of street people you have on all the sidewalks from St Elmo's to your State Capitol building, and multiply them by probably 10, you'll have an idea of the numbers of street people clobbering Berkeley. Unfortunately the Berkeley types are also drugged out deranged screamers, many totally psychotic, and frequently violent. They live in the corners, sleep in People's Park and defecate anywhere they want. They are also more aggressive than your Indianapolis panhandlers.

And then you add in the large student population, and also Berkeley's only minutes away by car or metro from inflammatory Oakland.

So I wouldn't be surprised at all if there were paid troublemakers bused in, but in Berkeley you already have on hand such a large population of local insane anarchists that there's always enough to whip up a decent riot at a moments notice. I still think the bravest guys in Berkeley are the few students who set up their "Berkeley College Republican" table on the plaza, just up from where it looks like that structure in the videos is burning.

Captain Hate

Yes, if someone was killed in the "protest", where is jor to demand that Zippy and his bots OWN IT? The JEF specifically endorsed this kind of lawlessness and needs to own up to it.

jimmyk

"it's the Christian thing to do" is the libtard call for crowd shaming the right and Evangelicals in particular.

Peter Beinart set off a firestorm in the Jewish world by doing this, with an obnoxious piece in the Forward on how Modern Orthodox Jews should be ashamed of Jared Kushner. It's all about twisting religion to being an instrument of the left, notably by people who are clueless about the actual religion.

I guaran-damn-tee you that if this was going on at Indiana University, there would be funding cuts from the legislature.

While funding cuts are always good, riots or not, better I think to have heads roll. A few administrators losing their jobs will send the right message.

And why wasn't the National Guard sent in? I suppose Jerry Brown was probably on board with the rioters?

Turkeys dropped from might be more effective

He'd smoked his adult life, but still had good lungs from the brass breathing.

I've told you this story before: I once knew a man who repaired brass instruments at the local music store in his old age. In his youth, during his time at a radio station orchestra in Iowa, he and several other band members would join a daily coffee klatsch with a young sportscaster called Dutch.

Thomas Collins

Rasmussen Reports has Trump at 53-47 in overall approval, and 40-40 in Strongly Approve vs. Strongly Disapprove. The 40/40 number shows how split the country is. I don't recall Obama ever coming close to 80 in the sum of Strongly Approve and Strongly Disapprove. It's not the same as the standoff after Lincoln's election, but it's a fairly stark divide. And the Strong Disapprovers who tolerate, facilitate, incite, organize or participate in UCal Berkeley type riots don't realize the determination of the Strong Approvers (at least that's my impression).

Captain Hate

We had are fair share of riots on campus back in the Vietnam days.

I used to know a guy who caught a stray shot in his psoriasis laden scalp at Kent State. He was a goofball and was fun to do stuff with as long as you didn't have to depend on him for anything, but after a while it was obvious that he let being in the wrong place at the wrong time define his entire life. Like a seasonal allergy he would return from Seattle (perfect location) every spring to take part in whatever protest was centered around the meaningless event. I don't think any of his friends had anything to do with him. When he died a few years ago, everybody who knew him just went "oh well".

Hello, all! Been away for a while toiling away on a work-related project, but thankfully now have a chance to take a break and check out JOM.

The Schadenfreude of watching the Left go even more bat-shit crazy than usual would be highly enjoyable if it weren't so frigging scary.

These nuts have completely lost it, and I fear that the violence will spiral out of control until the rest of us, who are normally too busy with our lives and work to get too distracted from our everyday routine FINALLY find it necessary to have our own counter-protests.

Otherwise, we cede the battlefield of the culture war to them and the MSM.
