Self-assured

"Is Gene Editing Terrorism just a matter of time?" (Engdahl).  Not Engdahl's title, though it does raise an interesting question.

"Slovak Police Arrest Suspects In Mafia Hit That Nearly Brought Down Government" (Durden).

"Conspiracy Theories" (Sailer).  The current bizarre politics of Washington is rooted in the sexual politics of Clarence Thomas and Bill Clinton, and much deeper political manipulation.  The funniest thing is that the best thing that could possibly happen for the Democrats, and the worst thing that could possibly happen for the Republicans (a dead party walking without the social triggers), is for Kavanaugh to be seated and overturn Roe v. Wade.  Roe v. Wade is a bizarre and technically terrible and legally strained - privacy rights, really? - decision which has given the Republicans a hammer to hit the Democrats with, and is basically the only thing keeping them alive as a party.  Let the hillbilly states regulate the issue and, if you actually care about health care for women, set up a system to arrange and pay for women to be treated in non-hillbilly states.  Eventually, the hillbilly states will mostly come around as the majority non-hillbillies will just get tired of all the religious nonsense, and once the issue loses its partisan political significance, it will just fade away.  See:
  1. "The Real Origins of the Religious Right" (Balmer) (as usual always with Assholians, it's all about the right to be racist, hidden behind a battle of the sexes, as that is safer);
  2. "How birth control became part of the evangelical agenda" (Burton);
  3. "The Truth About Christianity And Abortion" (Forrester).
Kick in the teeth:  "The Spectacular Zionist Boomerang" (Atzmon).

"The Real Reasons behind Washington’s War on UNRWA" (Baroud). De-refugeeing the Palestinians, thus removing any legal rights that are associated with being refugees.

'Fellow white people' news:  "Ben Dreyfuss: "People Hate the Mouthy Bro Who Forces You to Listen About How Great They Were at Sports at Their Sad Little Lily White Prep School."" (Sailer).

"The US-Mexico Trade Deal Dies" (Rosser).  Trump's 'art of the deal' gambit of isolating Canada by getting Mexico to betray Mexican-Canadian solidarity - a betrayal which Canada has publicly stated it will not forget - and imposing ridiculous deadlines on NAFTA negotiations, has completely failed (though to be fair, and conspiratorial, the Canadians seem to have convinced the Americans that they are domestically constrained with selling out Canadian dairy farmers until after the Quebec elections on October 1).  There is a lesson to be learned in standing up to seemingly self-assured bullies (see Atzmon above).

"The Abomination of Desolation Standing in the Holy Place" (The Saker).

"Germany Rises as ‘Eurostan’ Looms Closer" (Darkmoon).  It is instructive to note that the Muslims in question aren't your typical cross-section of the population, but a unusually messed up subsection of young men ruined by Wars For The Jews who seem to have been hand-selected to cause the most trouble possible, usually based on some addled political-religious justification.
