RAPID RESPONSE (Archives)...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.

LET ME BEND MY USUAL RULE...THAT IN A CRIMINAL CASE I WAIT FOR THE JURY TO TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED.
Here the threats of the mobs and their irresponsible mouthpieces were all over the trial and all over the jury room. So I agree with Professor Dershowitz.
But there is also something else. A crime requires both the Actus Reus (the criminal act) And the Mens Rea (the criminal Intent). Despite research, I am unsure as to whether conviction of Murder 2 requires a conscious INTENT TO KILL or not under Minnesota Law. I heard and read nothing throughout the coverage of this case that would in any way support a finding of an Intent to Kill on the part of the accused. Such a requirement if present would make a conviction for Murder 2 impossible, in my opinion.

NCAA is a bully: Boys must be allowed on girls' teams

TIn order to promote transgender ideology, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is discriminating against girls who play college sports.

By policy, the NCAA says schools must fully embrace the desire of any boy who claims to be a female to play on a girls' team in college competition. It's irresponsible enough to allow a boy to play on a girls' basketball or softball team, but the edict goes way beyond acceptable.

For example, according to the NCAA's policy handbook:
•    Boys "should be able to use the locker room, shower, and toilet facilities" with girls.
•    When traveling, boys "should be assigned to share hotels rooms" with girls.
•    “In all cases, teammates, coaches and all others in the school should refer to transgender student-athletes (boys) by the student's preferred (girl's) name." (Emphasis added.)

And if colleges and universities don't comply with these anti-girls' sports mandates, their states could be banned from hosting championships. Thus, the NCAA is acting the role of a threatening playground bully.

As Duke law professor and All-American track athlete Doriane Coleman, tennis champion Martina Navratilova, and Olympic track gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross recently wrote: "The evidence is unequivocal that starting in puberty, in every sport except sailing, shooting, and riding, there will always be significant numbers of boys and men who would beat the best girls and women in head-to-head competition."

The NCAA has chosen to ignore pure logic and simple science when it comes to the differences between male and female strength, agility, and natural skills.

In short, the NCAA is systematically destroying women's sports by allowing natural-born males to compete against females. When the game is fixed, there is no incentive to compete. And this is exactly what the NCAA is doing … fixing the game.

QUO VADIS?"


"Where are you going?" Where are we all going, as a nation and as individuals?

It would help to know where we are now.

1) Biden and the Leftists and their far-out positions that should cost them dearly in the next elections...
if the electorate is Awake and not Woke.
(What will also help - and would be obligatory - for the GOP to decide Now who they are and what they stand for.  Confusion will produce defeat in 2022, in 2024 and for a long time thereafter.)
Immigration, open borders without consideration of consequences except as relates to votes.
Economics: short-term national insecurity and long-term bankruptcy.
Equality confused with "Equity", the latter a dismal failure in all Marxist societies.
"Racism", the only diagnosis and only treatment recognized by the most racist among  us...the Black "leaders" and their lemmings.
Anti-Religion and Anti-Spirituality and Anti-Morality. God promised no more Floods.  But there are other ways....

2) Politicians : forget about public service, only self-service. Did you ever consider how political leaders like Pelosi can command the obedience of scores of individually elected office-holders regarding many positions that they and their individual electorate must loath? Self-service, that's how.

3) The arrogance of Bureaucrats, the unelected and permanent Administrative "branch" of government. Think FBI and CIA, which became heavily politicized in recent years, contrary to their sworn role.

4) Our national Military, sworn to protect and defend the nation - as a whole, and not merely a current and temporary part of it...now being politicized and indoctrinated. That produces and "banana republic". Beware!

5) A substantial minority of the Black minority in this country who appear to have taken control of the rest of their race here, akin to the Fundamentalists who have de-facto control of their moderate brethren in Muslim countries, with long-term grave consequences. Guaranteed, unless overcome, to reawaken a long-dormant antipathy of the rest of Americans toward them.

6) Law Enforcement / The Police.  Calls for their replacement by social workers is Stupid In The Extreme!
Yes, they need clearer rules of engagement and training. And Yes, THEIR ROLE AND THEIR BADGE IN OUR SOCIETY REQUIRE RESPECT AND OBEDIENCE WHEN DETAINED. The loss of that respect and obedience on the part of too many continues to produce tragic and avoidable consequences.

7) The Media. Journalism is dead in large swaths of our media in recent decades, replaced by half-truth's, lies, suppression - anything that will support their current political position. That is NOT what Amendment 1 protects!

8) The "Business Community". What is that? Self-Service in the Extreme, that's what. Whatever works for them, beginning with the Industrial Revolution and its inhumane working conditions, through World Wars working for both sides, and then any wars that will buy their armaments, through massive dealings with our national adversaries....
Whatever works FOR THEM. Don't expect any more or any different. Witness the most recent actions of big business in their amorphous political positions and in negating the people's rights to Freedom of Speech.

9) The Teaching Profession. Always hamstrung by a Feudal control structure and then by smothering Unions, these good people have lost - given up - their professionalism. This is especially true at the college level, which too many of them see as opportunity for control vs. quest for knowledge in an open forum. SHAME ON YOU!

10) The Health Care Professions, still reliable individually but increasingly suspect in the aggregate of massive business interests - with their increasing Control over their physicians and other "providers", bought, paid for and subject to discharge almost at will. Beware!

11) Juris Prudence. The Practice of Law is both a Profession and very much a business. That's OK. But what is not OK is if/when the Judiciary becomes identified with one political party or another, one political / contested point of view or another. That is NOT OK.

12) Science...and "science". Gone are the days when Louis Pasteur, Robert Koch and so many Greats beginning in antiquity could make their discoveries essentially without need for massive support. Financial support and expensive laboratories have their tolls. Although Science can still generally be trusted, an inquiring eye can detect issues in the science of Covid-19 and especially in the science of "Global Warming".
"Let the buyer beware".

13) Religion. Organized Religion, as distinguished from Spirituality. Most of us are spiritual beings at our core - either during life or at the moment of death..."Thank God I Died An Atheist". But organized Religion can be another matter. See Roman Catholicism. A Great and Good Religion, but not one given to introspection. And as a result in recent decades, the Church now worries about avoiding a "schism" - while it fails to recognize that it has been living a schism with a large part of its Laity ("the Body of the Church") since Vatican ll, "Humanae Vitae", and their progeny. Since then, church and mass attendance has gone from 70% to below 20%. The Magisterium can do Better than that without doing violence to the foundational Truths of Christianity.

And where does that leave John Q Public? With a Grave Responsibility, that's where.
"As we practised in typing class:
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD MEN TO COME TO THE AID OF THEIR COUNTRY".

WHAT IS GASLIGHTING?

The term originates in the systematic psychological manipulation of a victim by her husband in Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 stage play Gas Light, and the film adaptations released in 1940 and 1944. In the story, the husband attempts to convince his wife and others that she is insane by manipulating small elements of their environment and insisting that she is mistaken, remembering things incorrectly, or delusional when she points out these changes. The play's title alludes to how the abusive husband slowly dims the gas lights in their home, while pretending nothing has changed, in an effort to make his wife doubt her own perceptions. The wife repeatedly asks her husband to confirm her perceptions about the dimming lights, but in defiance of reality, he keeps insisting that the lights are the same and instead it is she who is going insane. Today, we are living in a perpetual state of gaslighting. The reality that what we are being told by the media is at complete odds with what we are seeing with our own two eyes. And when we question the false reality that we are being presented, or we claim that what we see is that actual reality, we are vilified as racist or bigots or just plain crazy. You’re not racist. You’re not crazy. You’re being gaslighted.

New York State has twice as many deaths from Covid-19 than any other state, and New York has accounted for one fifth of all Covid-19 deaths, but we are told that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has handled the pandemic better than any other governor. But if we support policies of Governors whose states had only a fraction of the infections and deaths as New York, we’re called anti-science and want people to die. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

We see mobs of people looting stores, smashing windows, setting cars on fire and burning down buildings, but we are told that these demonstrations are peaceful protests, and when we call this destruction of our cities, riots, we are called racists. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

We see the major problem destroying many inner-cities is crime; murder, gang violence, drug dealing, drive-by shootings, armed robbery, but we are told that it is not crime, but the police that are the problem in the inner-cities. We are told we must defund the police and remove law enforcement from crime-riddled cities to make them safer But if we advocate for more policing in cities overrun by crime, we are accused of being white supremacists and racists. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

The United States of America accepts more immigrants than any other country in the world. The vast majority of the immigrants are “people of color”, and these immigrants are enjoying freedom and economic opportunity not available to them in their country of origin, but we are told that the United States is the most racist and oppressive country on the planet, and if we disagree, we are called racist and xenophobic So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

Capitalist countries are the most prosperous countries in the world. The standard of living is the highest in capitalist countries. We see more poor people move up the economic ladder to the middle and even the wealthy class through their effort and ability in capitalist countries than any other economic system in the world, but we are told capitalism is an oppressive system designed to keep people down. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

Communist countries killed over 100 million people in the 20th century. Communist countries strip their citizens of basic human rights, dictate every aspect of their lives, treat their citizens as slaves, and drive their economies into the ground, but we are told that Communism is the fairest, most equitable, freest, and most prosperous economic system in the world. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

The most egregious example of gaslighting is the concept of “white fragility”. You spend your life trying to be a good person, trying to treat people fairly and with respect. You disavow racism and bigotry in all its forms. You judge people solely on the content of their character and not by the color of their skin. You don’t discriminate based on race or ethnicity. But you are told you are a racist, not because of something you did or said, but solely because of the color of your skin. You know instinctively that charging someone with racism because of their skin color is itself racist. You know that you are not racist, so you defend yourself and your character, but you are told that your defense of yourself is proof of your racism. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

Gaslighting has become one of the most pervasive and destructive tactics in American politics. It is the exact opposite of what our political system was meant to be. It deals in lies and psychological coercion, and not the truth and intellectual discourse. If you ever ask yourself if you’re crazy, you are not. Crazy people aren’t sane enough to ask themselves if they’re crazy. So, trust yourself, believe what’s in your heart. Trust your eyes over what you are told. Never listen to the people who tell you that you are crazy, because you are not, you’re being gaslighted.

Sophocles said: " What people believe prevails over the truth." That's what the media is trying to exploit

I've heard the term gaslighting before but didn't know what it meant until now. 

I sent this to you because, if you seriously think about the above, you will understand what is being done to us on a daily basis from many directions.  I do not care about your political party affiliation.  Just think through what you are being told.  Don't listen with a deaf ear, or see with a blind eye.  Question everything, even things from people who you think you can trust.  Question why you are being told whatever, by whomever.  Question their motives. Question who benefits. Question if there is a hidden agenda behind the propaganda.  Question, Question, Question.  Then do your own research, and use some of your own critical thinking skills to get to the truth.  Listen with your heart and with your mind.
 
Sadly, 95% of the masses don't even know that they are being gaslighted.  At least now you have thought about it.

THE GREATEST CON JOB  SINCE THE "MILITARY - INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX"
unmasked by President Eisenhower in the 1950's:

See the interview between Mark Levin and Candace Owens, Saturday April 3, 2021 on the show "Life, Liberty and Levin"

I have been defining the greatest Racist group in America, the "Black Community" as it is called, and their "leaders" for many years. This is not the majority of good, solid Black friends such as I have had for decades. It is a loud and cynical cabal of self-serving traitors to their race followed by stupid sheep who by now should know better. And perhaps that vast majority do know better. But, perhaps like the vast majority of moderate Muslims cowed by the crazy Fundamentalists in their midst, they are afraid to speak out.

It is chronic and progressive.
It is de-moralizing, if the victim ever had morals to begin with.
One constant symptom is a lust for Power.
It is contagious for close contacts, especially for politicians.
Innate Immunity is a rarity, but does exist.
