The Playbook, the Press, the Plan, and the Patsies

This week will be crucial to putting the Democrats back in their boxes. Let’s see if the GOP will take it. As I noted on Twitter the other day:

Who will be first Republican to stand up to this shameless Democrat blackmail and, like the Duke of Wellington, say “publish and be damned”? If this transparent ploy is not defeated, there will never be another GOP appointee to any office requiring congressional approval.

Call their bluff. Call the vote.

Are We on the Verge of Civil War?

Victor Davis Hanson writes about the growing tribalism around us.

Will America keep dividing and soon resort to open violence, as happened in 1861? Or will Americans reunite and bind up our wounds, as we did following the upheavals of the 1930s Great Depression or after the protests of the 1960s?

The answer lies within each of us.

Every day we will either treat each other as fellow Americans, with far more uniting than dividing us, or we will continue on the present path that eventually ends in something like a hate-filled Iraq, Rwanda or the Balkans.

Kurt Schlichter asks some interesting questions…

Bert and Ernie are not Gay…

They are puppets for Gods sake.

“As we have always said, Bert and Ernie are best friends. They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves. Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human characteristics (as most ‘Sesame Street’ Muppets do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation.”

Those Who Walked Away From Sanity

This piece from Sarah Hoyt is worth your time and thought…

There are a lot of stories of deals with the devil. They range from the gloomy, where the poor lost soul can never fight free (though he/she can sometimes have lots of fun as a ghost) to the ones where the devil is defeated by a trick. I have no proof, but my gut feeling and experience are that the first are mostly European and the later mostly American.

And you — all of you — know d*mn well you shouldn’t make deals with the devil.

Richard Fernandez: Night of the Demon

When the totality of cultural warfare and revolution now raging throughout the world is summed we may be watching an event bigger than the fall of the Soviet Union. The event doesn’t have a name yet, on the day we finally understand, it will. But understanding may prove the most difficult part.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Could it be true?

Andrew Klavan: “Why Are We in Media Hell?”

This piece encapsulates the way I have felt since the passing of John McCain.

So, for instance, Senator John McCain dies. For the record, the man was a heroic patriot with whom I often disagreed. At such a moment, out of respect for those who knew and loved him, with a due awe for that mortal end which reminds me of our shared humanity and with the understanding that he now stands before the perfect Judge who needs no help from me, I find it right and proper to put all political considerations aside and wish the man well on the Great Journey. Either pay tribute, say Rest in Peace, or keep your mouth shut. Nothing else is required.

And this is how we all behave — for about five minutes. By the sixth minute, however, the reactions on the news channels and social networks have turned predictably vicious. Some can’t get out of their own heads long enough to silence their political snarling. Others use their tributes to McCain to make nasty comparisons to the living. Still others start attacking the way some paid their respects. It’s like watching people pull the man’s body apart and beat each other over the head with his limbs.

Likewise with a shooting like the one in Jacksonville, Florida. We get a few minutes of thoughts and prayers (a completely appropriate response to a tragic situation over which you have no control and in which you had no involvement). Then the screaming starts over the Second Amendment. The nation’s media can’t even give the families of the dead one lousy day to grieve in peace before they are at each other’s throats.

Then the screaming fades. The news and social media move on. Until the next time, when it all starts again.

We’re in Hell.
