Orwell’s quote seems to be another way of expressing a Prager idea that the Left is about feelings rather than standards. A standard doesn’t change even if you’re overcome with emotion. “Officer, I cut him because I loved him.” My retired firefighter brother remembers overhearing those words when he was called to a domestic dispute incident years ago.

Further on, I came across a very famous quote that has no doubt shown up here. In discussing nationalism, Orwell mentions a fantasy among British leftists, that the Americans were in Britain to put down a British revolution rather than to defeat Hitler. It is here that he famously concludes, "One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that; no ordinary man could be such a fool." So now you know the background to the quote.

Another pointed article from Theodore Dalrymple. His powers of observation and gift of the gab, make him the perfect commentator on today's culture.

Unfit to a T

The way he notes society's regression to an ever falling mean is very pleasant. It is as if he has already given up and is having a nice cup of coffee watching the world slide off the cliff.

Well, I have (had) buttons and T-shirts with messages on them. Of course, mine are more like a Ben Franklin quote: "Democracy is two lions and a lamb arguing over what to have for dinner. Freedom is a well-armed lamb." I don't think many of Taki's targets would wear a message like that. (I also had a button I meant to wear, but forgot, the day we visited the four battlefields in the Fredericksburg-Spotsylvania area. It was the famous last words of Major General John Sedgwick at Spotsylvania, given there as, "Why, they couldn't hit an elephant at this dist-")

I suppose one could argue that at a certain point, there's nothing else to do but watch the show created by what passes for modern culture. I once read a biography of Hermann Göring which suggested that he spent the last half of the war in essence playing Nero -- fiddling as his country burned. By then that result was inevitable.

What's next? Letting non-citizens vote? Oh, I forgot, some place in California is already pushing that for school board elections.

Golden could be the first Colorado city to lower the minimum voting age to 16

The Dims will do anything to get votes. There is a fair amount of dishonesty in this article as to why 16-year-old kids should have the right to vote.

Naturally liberals like this, expecting whatever youths vote to be primarily Demagogues. The reason we lowered the age to 18 was because we drafted people at 18, and it seemed peculiar (and was the subject of jokes) to say that people could be ordered to kill for American but couldn't vote. (Actually, the voting age was 18 in Kentucky and Georgia, 19 in Hawaii, and 20 in Alaska.)

I don't care how many would vote (well, actually I do, but not as they mean it), I care how well they would vote. That doesn't matter to leftists, for obvious reasons.

Fox News has a lot of leftists used primarily in debates with sane people. Given their "we report, you decide" slogan, this is necessary. It would be nice if they had sane leftists, but that may be impossible.

One of the worst and most frequently is Chris Hahn. As with all leftists, his job is to spin the news (which today means blatantly lying, certainly in his case) to favor the left. And then, having pulled off some gross lie, he delivers such a perfect grin. And every time he does, I think of Hamlet describing King Claudius: "Meet it is as I set it out, that one may smile, and smile, and be a villain." (The quote is the source of the title for one of the best Nero Wolfe novels, and the first of three in which Wolfe encounters Arnold Zeck.)

Readers will probably have heard that Dianne Feinswein claims to have a letter from an unnamed California woman alleging some sort of sexual incident in high school involving Brett Kavanaugh. She supposedly got the letter from California Rep. Anne Eshoo. Naturally, this is extremely suspicious. Unless the woman comes forward to face cross-examination over her claims (whatever they might be), this letter is totally worthless. Except, of course, as a tool of character assassination, which is in fact its purpose.

The obvious question would be why she didn't come out during the hearings and let herself be questioned then. This is especially relevant because, for all practical purposes, Senate rules mean that the Justice committee must wait 2 weeks after the hearings are done, so if they were reopened now the disgusting sow Feinswein would already have delayed the vote at least another week.

Making it worse, Fox News just reported that Feinswein has had this letter since July and didn't do anything with it until last night, when she turned it over to the FBI. (They chose to leave it to the White House to make a decision. If it's anonymous, the decision should be to ignore it. If not, the woman should face questioning -- but without delaying the confirmation vote. But either way, it will be useful as a smear, which was the sow's purpose in acting as she did.)

Obviously, the Senate Ethics Committee should act on this by investigating Feinswein. The sow will actually be pleased with that, since it will be an asset among Demagogue voters in California.

The Senate Judiciary Committee will have a session next Monday to query Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford about her vague, unsupported, and dubious accusation that he tried to rape her somewhere around the summer of 1982. But Ford is balking, claiming that she won't testify unless the FBI investigates this impossibly vague report of a long-ago (beyond any statute of limitations) of a state (not federal) crime first. She's also unhappy about sharing a table with Kavanaugh, though she knows perfectly well (or her leftist activist lawyer does) that this wouldn't happen.

In other words, the liar/lunatic doesn't want to face even the mildest questioning about her smear, and is simply following the Demagogue party line: delay, delay, delay. By doing so, she exposes herself as a party hack lying for the sake of besmirching Kavanaugh (as Anita Hill did Clarence Thomas).

Every time a leftist ideologue dies, the world is improved in every respect. The technical term for this is addition by subtraction.

The Dims see this as a win for them no matter what happens. If the Reps are foolish enough to accept the lunatic's demands, Kavanaugh's confirmation would be delayed until after the November elections. And maybe the Dims will regain the Senate.

If the Reps refuse to accept then the Dims will use this as a fundraising scheme which will give them an even better chance of taking back the Senate.

Of course they would prefer to halt Kavanaugh outright, but the Dims seem to be able to plan in ways that help them one way or the other. This type of thinking seems to be beyond the Reps.

After seeing a picture of her as a teenager, I am even more inclined to think that this female was obsessed with Kavanaugh who did not pay any attention to her. "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." Of course, she gets a twofer being a crazy leftist. Hurt the right and someone who didn't take notice of her in her sensitive youth. How many times did this nut have to visit a shrink?
