If looking for fault and disaster, maybe you need to turn your head

The Daytona 3,000 – Power Crews from All Over U.S. Stage at Daytona International Speedway… sundance – “Keep a joyous heart filled with thankfulness; and if you can’t muster it, then just pretend.” One of the best ‘what to expect’ and ‘what to do’ hurricane stories out there.

CNN falsely pushes claims that ‘climate crisis is making hurricanes more dangerous’. Thomas Lifson – “CNN’s fall from a purveyor of news to pure propaganda organ of the Left was vividly displayed yesterday.

To Reduce Gun Violence, Arm All Americans. Charlie Martin – “Now because I’m sure some rental commenter is just waiting to start typing, yes I think it’s awful that people got shot and killed.

“I can’t help but wonder why the extremely high murder rates in places like Chicago and Baltimore don’t seem to be news stories.

I’ll leave that for another rant, however, and point out that when you consider murder rates there is a very very high correlation between really stringent gun laws and really high gun violence.

From Icon to Just a Con. Victor Davis Hanson – “Most of us who came of age in the 1970s revered the university.

“What went wrong? The former students of the 1970s came into power and gradually began to reject the very code of conduct and training of those who taught them. And in turn they taught a new generation who for the first time had little first-hand knowledge of the great campus scholars and icons of the past.

New progressive doctrines insisted that because the traditional elements of American society and culture—the family, church, community, and government—were biased, the university was needed as a counterweight to these nefarious conservative forces.

Because America had not been perfect in 21st-century moral terms, then it never had been even good. Ironically, few of the new faculty and student censors ever imagined the horrors and grit of the past—or could never have endured the deadly trek of the pioneers they now damned, the daily effort to find clean water or dispose safely of raw sewage, or the ordeal of having a third of one’s children die in birth or from childhood diseases.

Bitterness abounds when graduates gradually learn that their liberal anti-capitalist professors and administrators were part of a profit-rigged system by which peasant students became financial cannon fodder.

In praise of Melania Trump, the first lady treated terribly by the media. Miranda Devine – “Pitting two women against each other just never gets old, does it?” And it is a good source to apply the word ugly as in smear and bigotry. Devine illustrates.

“Melania & Michelle: First Ladies in a New Era,” by Tammy R. Vigil, is presented as a mere bipartisan assessment of the public images of both women.

But it thinly veils its criticism of one and its admiration of the other. No prizes for guessing who’s who.

But, hey, if it damages the Trumps, go for it.

There is a good reason Melania, 49, might be “aloof” with the media, and that is because the attacks on her are more vicious, personal and unrelenting than any first lady has endured.

unlike Hillary Clinton, whose aggressive foray into health care policy when she was first lady caused considerable political fallout for her husband, Melania doesn’t flaunt her influence.

She is a woman whose poise and dignity speaks volumes.

Unlike his predecessors, Trump gets China. Paul Mirengoff – “Trump’s approach also makes some of his supporters nervous because they fear that a trade war with China might well throw our economy into a tailspin and perhaps cost Trump the 2020 election. I confess to being nervous on these grounds.

“There should be no doubt, however, that Trump understands China. Chen Guangcheng, a leading human rights advocate who has been struggling against the Chinese regime for many years, makes that case in the Washington Post. The title (paper edition) is to the point: “Trump gets China. His critics don’t.”

Trump, by contrast, “is the first president in recent memory to seriously say to this communist dictatorship: If you want to keep doing business with us, you have to change.” And Trump has backed up this statement with his actions:

Trump, with an admittedly unorthodox style, is trying to break down the systems, and the concessions, that have allowed the CCP to operate unchecked for too long. He deserves credit, not criticism, for saying: Enough.

looking for fault is self deceit and social disservice.
