RAPID RESPONSE...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section. It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours. Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction. Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active. That's all I promise.

HERE'S THE LATEST IN REVERSE DISCRIMINATION: AN "ADVERSITY" SCORE.
The real adversity is the result of Black and Minority students and their "leaders" supporting the Teachers' Unions and their wholly - owned subsidiary (the Democratic Party) in the charade that has been "public school education" during the last forty years and their efforts to thwart any reforms.
Stupid in the extreme. And they still haven't learned.

MORE ABOUT "RECREATIONAL" MARIJUANA USE - AND ABOUT THE SCHLOCK SCIENCE THAT SUPPORTS IT.

Whether it be regarding this subject, or about Global Warming or about many other politicized and cash-weaponized subjects, "Science" today "ain't what it used to be". In fact, it sometimes resembles Mustang Ranch.
See the article by Alex Berenson, the author of a recently published book entitled:
"Tell Your Children: The Truth About Marijuana, Mental Illness And Violence".

The article: "Weeding Out Dubious Marijuana Science" (in WSJ May 6, 2019, Opinion, pA19).

MORE ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND GLOBAL WARMING.
It's safe to use those terms without quotation marks.
They are real. What is in question are issues of causation, duration and treatment.
See the Editorial in The Day, May 9, 2019, entitled:
"Climate Disaster Awaits Our Children Unless All Act Now."
This article embraces the findings and proposals of a recent United Nation report on the subject.
The problem arises with the listed proposed actions and their acknowledged difficulty of implementation.
"Politics is the Art of the Possible". There is little in that list that is possible in the short term. What is possible is to assist developing nations to develop economically without their current practices of despoiling their natural habitat in ways that negate the efforts of the rest of the world. That would be much more politically feasible than expecting the developed world to descend to their status again through the proposed changes. GET REAL, FOLKS.

THERE ARE THREE TOPICS THAT WILL BE ADDRESSED TIME AND AGAIN IN THIS SECTION:
Health Care. Public Education. Abortion.

These are the main national traumas that underlie all of the Sturm und Drang in our national political life.
Here I call attention to an excellent article on Public Education that recently appeared in ctmirror.com, May 1, 2019, by Beth Bye: "We Need A New Approach to Educating Connecticut Children." It is realistic, sober and sobering.
Meanwhile, a reminder of the Stupidity that has encased Public Education and its defenders during the last decades is the article: "A Charter School Principle Won't Go To Prison", by Jason L. Riley (in WSJ May 1, 2019, Opinion, pA17).

MOTHERS DAY.
A most brief salute to those members of the human species who are by the far the more noble.
Psychologically and even physically stronger, women achieve their intended and greatest potential in selflessly giving life and life-long support to other human beings.
To quote Prince Harry shortly after the birth of Archie:
"It's Incomprehensible how mothers do it". Indeed.

And then there are the females (not women, not ladies) who debase themselves by supporting and seeking abortion: nothing less than the killing of a living human being from the moment of conception.
That is what is incomprehensible to me - and to the vast majority of other human beings. But in this I defer to a higher Intelligence: '"Vengeance Is Mine. I Shall Repay". sayeth The Lord."'
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.

WELL, WHO HAS BEEN SAYING THIS FOR MANY YEARS?

I HOPE THAT COLUMNIST PEGGY NOONAN IS A MOTHER,

See two EXCELLENT articles by her that were recently published in the WSJ.
One describes the current fracture of American society, its reasons and its grave risks:
"The Missing Order In American Politics" (Opinion, May 11-12, 2019, pA13).
The other is a treatment program for that fracture, implemented best by a redefined Republican Party:
"Republicans In A Nation Needing Repair" (Opinion, May 4-5, 2019, pA13).

"We are a beautiful and great nation but a needy, torn-up one in need of repair."
"...eventually we will face a terrible day or days when everything will depend on our ability to hold together and hold on. Will we hold together?...Will we continue as a nation, a people?"

JUST SO YOU KNOW...

GS

The situation on America’s college campuses is becoming more dire every day as left-wing protesters (and even professors and administrators) try to shut up anyone they don’t agree with.

They see the free pass the media is giving to "responsible adults" like Rep. Sims of Pennsylvania, who harassed three young pro-life students for simply praying outside a Planned Parenthood, and are becoming more emboldened than ever to shutdown pro-lifers.

And no one has a bigger target on their backs on America’s college campuses today than Students for Life.

Just this Spring Semester, our pro-life groups have documented over two-dozen cases of vandalization against our pro-life displays on campus.

Even after President Trump invited us to the White House for his signing of an Executive Order that forced universities to choose between allowing free speech for groups like ours or risking federal research dollars, we’re still being targeted.

In fact, the banner we set up to advertise my final “Lies Feminists Tell” speech of the semester at Western Washington University (which had my face on it) was just burned on campus.

And george, when I spoke on the campus on Thursday night. It was intense. We had over 200 students show up, the vast majority opposing me.  Several times during my speech, the police had to remove protestors.

After the radical protesters I encountered on my “Lies Feminists Tell” tour at the University of California-Berkeley who threateningly stood behind me during my entire speech holding coat hangers and the police calling in bomb-sniffing dogs to sweep the room prior to my speech at Cal State–Fullerton because of threats, I don’t dare step foot on campus without having private security or a large campus police force.

Planned Parenthood’s allies know they can’t win the argument over abortion – not with outrageous claims like a baby born alive during a botched abortion is, in fact, “not a baby” as one student at Boston College tried to tell me.

So they’re doing everything they can to stop us from even being able to argue at all!

That includes everything from vandalizing our displays to resorting to violence against our courageous pro-life leaders!

As you’ll see below, I’ve written out just a handful of incidents our student groups have faced recently.

As you read over the list at the end of my email (which is sadly growing nearly every day), will you please keep our pro-life students who are on the front lines in your prayers?

Pro-life students are finding that their First Amendment rights are being stripped away. If they’re not being shouted down by rabid pro-abortion protesters at one of our peaceful events, our groups are being stonewalled behind the scenes by bureaucrats in college administrations.

The Abortion Lobby has always seen college campuses as “their turf.”

But after the election of President Trump put defunding Planned Parenthood back on the table and seeing the work that this Pro-Life Generation is doing to change hearts and minds, pro-abortion activists are doing everything in their power to maintain their iron grip on college campuses.

That means stooping to the kinds of violence and intimidation tactics I just laid out for you.

And as they see their own school’s administration standing idly by – or even tacitly supporting their vandalism – they’ll only become more emboldened

We can’t let this happen.

These courageous young women and men are truly on the front lines of the culture war for Life.

For Life,
 
Kristan Hawkins
President, Students for Life

"MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE RANCH..."
no meaningful legislation is getting done except through Executive action.
Does this mean we need "...change to U.S. system of government"?
See the AP article by Ricardi and Swanson entitled
"Poll Finds Hunger for Change to U.S. System Of Government", published in The Day, May 2, 2019.
I think not. What we need is predictable change in the persons representing us in that government - through TERM LIMITS - and change in the now common situation of individuals spending entire working careers in powerful but unelected positions in the massive bureaucracy covered under Administrative Law.
There is much to be done. We could begin with the proposal put forward in a good article unfortunately spoiled by its title: "Will Republicans Protect Trump Or U.S. Democracy?" (Editorial, The Day, May 2, 2019).
