Speaking of the Human Development Society, this--

In partnership with Leading for Kids and with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Children’s Hospital Association, the FrameWorks Institute is engaging in research to understand the cultural barriers to prioritizing children in policymaking and to develop a new narrative that can help put children’s wellbeing more squarely on the public and policymaking agendas. In this strategic brief, we report findings from the first phase of this project, which centers on understanding these cultural barriers and identifying possible directions for the development of a new narrative around kids.

Democrats have always used radical groups as victims, insurgents and ultimately, as human shields.

I have noted in the past that the Democrat Party is not really a single political party, it is a coalition of interest an issue groups, often groups with wildly disparate and mutually exclusive interests. The miracle of the Democrats is how they alternately use these groups as victims while they placate others, making mutually exclusive promises that can never be satisfied in order to maintain control over the groups.

If you wonder why they put up with the rabid anti-Semitism of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the openly racial hatred of Ayanna Pressley and Cori Bush and the communist pronouncements of Sandy Cortez, this is why.

What the Democrats do amounts to a mass case of Munchausen syndrome by proxy. Taking the outward manifestations of this syndrome and modifying them only to reflect the political realm instead of the medical, we get someone who:

• Has political skills or experience.
• Seems devoted to his or her country.
• Looks for sympathy and attention.
• Tries too hard to become close and friendly with the electorate.
• Needs to feel powerful and in control.
• Does not see his or her behavior as harmful.

The way they treat their constituent groups bear a strong resemblance to the way purveyors of Munchausen treat their victim and for the same reasons.

The University of Michigan Health Systems indicates that a doctor or nurse may suspect Munchausen when:

• A child [a particular group in America] has a repeated or unusual illness, and no reason can be found.
• The child [America or a particular group] does not get better, even with treatments that should help. Symptoms only occur when the caregiver [Democrats] is with or has recently been with the child. But symptoms get better or go away when the caregiver [Democrats] is not there or is being closely watched.
• The other parent (usually the father) [the GOP] is not involved in the child's treatment, even though the child's condition may be serious.
• A caregiver [Democrats] suddenly changes doctors and lies about prior testing and treatment.
• Normal test results do not reassure the caregiver [Democrats]. And he or she [the Democrats] may be strangely calm or happy when the child's [a particular group in America] condition is getting worse.
• The caregiver [Democrats] is seen (or videotaped or recorded) harming the child or causing symptoms.
• Another child [a particular group in America] in the family has had unexplained illness or death.

It is not too difficult to make the bracketed substitutions in the above and see the undeniable similarities.

The apparent ethos of the Democrat Party seems not so much America hating, no matter how strong it appears to be. It seems to me to be more resentment than real hate, some sort of a mass inferiority complex, a self-loathing condition brought about by an overwhelming suspicion their ideology is simply unworkable and wrong for America. Strongly suspecting they are fraudulently insufficient; it is their overpowering desire to be seen as a sympathetic figure and somewhat curiously, it seems they have come to enjoy the satisfaction of deceiving people whom they perceive to be more powerful than themselves.

I am in no way qualified to make a medical diagnosis, but it is not terribly difficult for the layman to see the manipulation, deceit, aggression, and a lack of empathy for others common to psychopathy and sociopathy embedded in the way at least the 75 million people who voted for President Trump are treated. It is not difficult to see the callousness and detachment of the Democrats when anything they propose is questioned or opposed. Former President Obama demonstrated all of those characteristics in his most recent interview, especially when speaking of Critical Race Theory.

“That boy ain’t right in the head,” was something my granddaddy used to say about a local boy who did irrational and outrageous things.

I can see him saying that about the contemporary Democrats – and he would not be wrong.

They ain’t right.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

The left are enjoying a unique coincidence of circumstances that is greatly magnifying their political impact, while the rest of America — especially its moderates — are too preoccupied to complain. The left’s message is everywhere, and their agenda is advancing at the local, state and national level. It follows that the left must be proportionally larger than at any point in America’s history, right? Wrong. The left’s seemingly ominous size is an illusion.
What is larger is not the left but the left’s influence.

Despite the left appearing to be America’s new majority, the left are a small minority. Exit polling from 2020’s presidential election found just 24 percent of voters self-identified as liberal. Even if all these voters were the radical left, which they are not, they would be just a quarter of America’s electorate.

That every liberal voter is not a leftist supporter is indicated by the fact that 10 percent of liberals voted for Donald Trump in 2020. Subtracting these out lowers the possible leftist ceiling to just 21.6 percent of America’s voters. It is safe to assume that even within this roughly one-fifth of the electorate there is opposition to the radical left. It is therefore plausible that the radical left are outnumbered by over four to one in America.

If the left’s illusion is due to such unique factors (CoVid-19), why does it still continue? The left are preoccupied with retaining their once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; the rest of America are preoccupied with regaining their normal lives.

There is a reason why virtually all protests are the left’s: The left live to protest, while the rest of America have lives to live.

Wagging the dog is a cynical political expression. It describes a small minority ludicrously reversing the normal situation. In America, this can only happen if the dog allows itself to be wagged.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Joe Biden surprised some observers this week when, addressing U.S. military forces at the Royal Air Force base in Mildenhall, England, he said that the nation's top military leaders told him the "greatest threat" facing America is global warming.

Biden described going to a meeting in 2009 in "The Tank," which is the super-secure Joint Chiefs of Staff meeting room in the Pentagon. "And this is not a joke," Biden said. "You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest threat facing America was? Global warming." Biden said that was because warming would cause "significant population movements," leading to "fights over land."

Given the actual military threats the United States faces today from China, Russia, North Korea, and a host of other bad actors around the globe, Biden's statement seems crazy. Is the new administration really so woke that it in a military setting -- speaking to U.S.
troops -- the president would say that global warming is the greatest threat facing the United States? The answer is yes.

Biden's remarks sent the nation's top generals and defense officials scrambling to explain. As it happened, Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman General Mark Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin testified a short time later at the Senate Armed Services Committee. Asked about Biden's remarks, Milley tried to argue that there was no inconsistency between what the president said and what the U.S. military's mission actually is. But Milley, when asked about the greatest threats the U.S. faces, clearly was not buying the global warming argument.

"The president is looking at it from a much broader angle than I am," Milley testified. "I'm looking at it from a strictly military standpoint. And from a strictly military standpoint, I'm putting China and Russia up there." Austin was also questioned about the military's priorities. U.S. military strategy puts great value on "lethality," for obvious reasons. Indeed, Milley wrote a few years ago that the Army's modernization strategy "has one simple focus: make soldiers and units more lethal."

So Republican Senator Dan Sullivan asked Austin, "Mr. Secretary, in your opening statement, you mentioned climate change 15 times and lethality twice, which I think is a bit of a mismatch." Austin tried to backtrack a bit, questioning whether he had really mentioned climate change 15 times (he had).

Feds subpoenaed Hunter Biden during 2016 election, raising worry over unpaid taxes on Ukraine work

Lawyers and accountants prepared "proffer" to federal authorities, scrambled to devise narrative on unpaid taxes in emails that undercut president's longtime claim his son did nothing wrong.

As the 2016 election kicked into full gear, Hunter Biden’s inner circle feared an impending federal criminal indictment of his long-time business partner might expose the then-vice president’s son to legal jeopardy because he had avoided paying taxes on income from the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma Holdings, according to emails on an abandoned laptop seized by the FBI.

I am not eat pie often, but when I do it's Apple.

matt - deplore me if you must

I think I have an idea of why some of the most radical anti-Americans are the way they are. The crazy psychiatrist lady and the guy who hates apple pie are, I think, products of the British colonial system, once removed.

There is a whole tradition of anti-imperialism that hates the very existence of whites going back to the original colonization of the Subcontinent, Sepoy Mutiny, Chandra Bose, and even Gandhi. Ottoman legacies also had axes they felt they had to grind.

In their lizard brains they equate any white to devils.So if your are white and Christian, that is 2 strikes right there.

So rather than look at the United States as the first post-colonial society they have it bass ackwards.

Good afternoon! I spent the day bringing Scout to the groomer and then some retail therapy in Bangor. The groomer is fantastic, she's groomed both our cairn terriers for almost 20 years.
Howie Carr has been discussing the prom in Exeter, NH where unvaxxed students had a number written on their hand with a Sharpie. He's had calls and texts from outraged parents,who weren't informed. This has blown up into a national story. The prom was held outside! Exeter is liberal and upscale. A teacher from Exeter just texted Howie to say the reason the school district hasn't released
a response is because they are meeting with lawyers to construct a "non-apology apology."

Boston, NYC, San Fran, LA, and Oregon were centers of the EST/Scientology/Turn On Tune In Drop Out/Here Let's Put This In Our Mouths/Quaalude/Horse Tranquilizer set from early on and so are well documented.

After a lot of the studies done on effluent water and the high concentrations of psychoactive drugs in that coming from our major cities it should no surprise they're out of their minds,.Recycling, I'm sure, makes the effects even worse.
