The Drudge Sampler (Edition IV – 10/5/14)


Drudge Headline(s):

Quick Reaction: Ahhh… that global warming! I know, I know… it’s only weather. But, someone forgot to tell people like National Public Radio and the rest of the dinosaur legacy media that there hasn’t been any global warming for nearly a generation. Hence while they’re still flogging the skeletal remains of “Global Warming,” the left has realized how ridiculous they look, and have adopted their current, equally ridiculous hysteria about “climate change.”

Since the climate does nothing but change, that means that the left’s complaint is with … climate. The left hates climate.

Quick Reaction:

  1. Why is there even an “EBOLA Path?” Why aren’t we stopping Ebola in its tracks, by shutting down the ability of those in affected countries to move around the world? ‘Cause our leadership is stupid, that’s why. Or, ’cause they don’t care if Americans die. Or both.
  2. Duh! They can never be sure they found ’em all.
  3. One of the most interesting headlines of all. Of course, it’s stupid. The test of Rick Perry’s (Governor (R) of Texas) leadership came long ago. Texas is one of the best-run states in the union. Actually, this ebola thing is, potentially at least, a test of Perry’s ability to handle an unprecedented crisis that no American leader has ever had to face before. If he handles this well, then there is automatically a good case to be made for a Rick Perry Presidency.
  4. Coincidences don’t mean anything. They do represent an occasion to say, “Hmmmm…” That’s about it, though.
  5. Immigrants always worry about “backlash,” then a bunch of people jump to their defense, as they did right after 9/11. On 9/12/2001, it became a hanging offense to suggest that Islam just might have had something to do with terrorist attacks for which the terrorists themselves claimed Islam was the impetus. It’s a natural worry, and in this case, when that are scores of terrorists streaming across the border, it just might be a valid worry.
  6. Shouldn’t they be monitoring/studying/analyzing the doctor’s blood to see what kind of antibodies he has? I mean this dude survived ebola!
  7. Great. Freakin’ ebola is all over the freakin’ place now! That’s certainly something we want to dot all about the countryside! I guess we’re not really all worried about its “spread.” Oh, I get it. If we spread it all around, then that won’t mean that it spread all by itself! Get it? Me neither.
  8. Scare in Kansas City? See previous note.
  9. Treatment boot camp? Soooooo… let me get this straight. A bunch of doctors have no idea how to handle this thing, so we’re busy spreading it around the country? See comment #1.
  10. Could reach France and UK by end of month. This is incorrect. Here’s the correct headline: “Is likely in France and UK now.”
  11. Duh! Ya think?!?! Buy stock now in the companies that make and sell emergency supplies!
  12. What do they do when they find a kid with a temp? There are millions of such kids every day. Seriously… do we now degenerate into hyper-paranoid mode and send every kid to the ER?
  13. “CDC Director: Travel ban would make outbreak worse…” Oh? How? A “travel ban” is for potentially affected people, not for medical personnel… obviously. The CDC director is assuming that the travel ban pertains to all people. Welllllll…that’d be kinda stupid!
  14. See comment #1, and apply it to all countries… especially those with socialist/leftist leadership, who just don’t — read it well — care. Not one bit, not one iota, not one jot (but, I repeat myself?), not one ounce, not one rat’s gluteus maximus. Always remember, if a leader is of leftist or atheist bent, then he considers the people as nothing more than fuel or food for his state apparatus. If some of them die because of a delay in action, or ill-considered action, or out-and-out inaction, he doesn’t care. Oh, he has to make loud noises to the effect that he gives a darn, but that’s only to prevent the people from pouring into the streets and toppling him. Our “leader” in the United States is of a leftist or atheist bent.
  15. Marburg. Great. Cousin of ebola, only, apparently, worse. Coming soon to a hospital near you. Read more here.

Quick Reaction:

The Patriots lose big, and it appears as though we might be seeing the beginning of the end of a lengthy, productive, Hall-of-Fame but frequently frustrating quarterback career in the NFL.


Drudge Headline(s): 

  1. ‘Where’s the global warming?’
  2. Expert says public growing sceptical of ‘climate change’…

Quick Reaction:

  1. Where’s the “global warming?” Easy answer: there hasn’t been any in nearly a generation.
  2. Growing? The informed public was “sceptical” many years ago, at the very first mention of “settled science,” which as any scientist knows, is a nonsense concept.

Drudge Headline(s): 

Quick Reaction:

  • You’ll note they didn’t eat each other. Yes, that’s actually important, as there are American commentators who think that black people anyway are just a few lean days from descending into cannibalistic savages. You can read proof of that here.

Drudge Headline(s): 

Quick Reaction:

  • It starts. We covered a similar thing here. In summary, a boy with violent tendencies who “identifies” as a girl was trying to get into treatment facilities for girls. Because, you see, he “identifies” as a girl. National Public Radio picked up on the unsensational and largely stupid story, then sensationalized and serialized it. Except for a brief mention in the very first edition that this kid was really a boy, NPR always referred to him as “Jane Doe,” and as she or her. If you came into the series somewhere after the very, very beginning, you would have thought quite naturally that you were hearing about a girl, all while you were actually hearing about a boy. The young man — 16-years old at the time of the feature several months ago — ended up, quite logically in a treatment facility for boys. After all, the ones who actually had to deal with him knew that to put him in with girls was just asking for trouble… and putting them in danger.
  • Now we have to deal with boys who “identify” as girls wanting to play girls’ sports. I’m tempted to suggest that we simply allow this all to play out and then we can get rid of the nonsensical idea that girls can do everything that boys can do. However, a more positive way to approach this is to tell boys who “identify” as girls and vice-versa to cut the nonsense and get back into the proper locker rooms, bathrooms and other facilities devoted to the actual configuration of your chromosomes.
  • It’s a simple fact: if you cater to those who simply call themselves something else, then you will have many more such people, either mistakenly or fraudulently, calling themselves something they’re not, as it becomes convenient for them. See, for example: Manning, Bradley (Chelsea)
  • As I’ve said before, maybe I should simply “identify” as a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader and demand to be able to shower with them after work. After all, if you don’t let me do it, that’s “sexual orientation” discrimination, and that would be wrong.

Drudge Headline(s): 

Quick Reaction:

  • Whatever. The only thing worse, for one of these narcissistic celebrities is if no one wanted pictures of their naked selves. Look how quickly and solicitously Google acted on behalf of these bubble-headed, sex-obsessed celebrities. Want to know why? ‘Cause they’re still leftists in good standing. If you were, for example, to go out and google the sextape of a well-known ostensibly conservative person (no names, I don’t want to add to the dissemination of the thing) you can find it in numerous locations. I wonder why that is.
  • One quick question: how many pictures of your naked backside are out there, where hackers could obtain them?
  • It’s worth repeating: if any celebrities have pictures of their naked selves on the hard drives of ordinary Americans, it’s because they wanted pictures of their naked selves on the hard drives of ordinary Americans.

Drudge Headline(s): 

  1. CLAIM: Drones pinpoint Jihadi John…

  2. WARNING: U.S. veteran up next…

  3. ISIS TAKES ABU GHRAIB…

  4. Flag from 9/11 lost in Flight 93 Memorial fire…

Quick Reaction:

  1. Great. Let’s tell the scumbag about it, so he can go hide somewhere else.
  2. Anyone surprised? Again, to call ISIS or ISIL or IS rabid dogs is to be unfair to rabid dogs.
  3. Wellllllllll…that’s gotta be better than the Americans having control of it, eh? I mean, the Americans made Iraqi war prisoners walk on the floor on all fours in their skivvies. Much better to be decapitated, or crucified or raped, or all three… though not in that order, of course. Or, who knows? This is ISIS after all, maybe that is the order they prefer.
  4. Sad. If the investigation finds arson, then we will know that the terrorists are here in our midst. Between you and me, I believe they are. It makes sense. If you were a terrorist monitoring American media, and you saw nothing but headline after article, after broadcast news story, after radio feature, after magazine piece, after blogpost, after editorial telling of how open the border is with both Mexico and Canada, and that hordes were just pouring through, do you think you just might send a few scumbags over to cross into America, there to harm Americans? It’s not a trick question.

Quick Reaction:

  • That. particular ship sailed years ago.

Drudge Headline(s): 

  1. POLL: Americans worry…

  2. Can government protect us?

Quick Reaction:

  1. Uhhh… Duh!
  2. The correct question is: “Does the government even want to do the one thing that the Constitution absolutely mandates that it do: defend the shores of America?”

Drudge Headline(s): 

Quick Reaction:

  • Good. However, I have to believe that if we have drones flitting about on high, controlled only by a joystick and a geek in a basement in the CIA, this particular technology has to have been available long ago.
  • Also, I have to believe that the same thing exists for unmanned submarines.
  • Needless to say, all these things should contain highly effective and/or lethal self-destruct mechanisms in the eventuality that we lose control of one, or it fall into enemy hands.

Drudge Headline(s): 

  1. Israel police on alert to avert clashes as major Jewish and Muslim holidays coincide…
  2. 2 million Muslims stone ‘devil’ at hajj…

Quick Reaction:

  1. Did you ever notice that no one anywhere in the world ever goes on alert when Jewish and Christian holidays coincide? To the contrary, around Christmas/Hanukkah time, Christians wish a cheerful “Happy Hannukkah!” to Jews, while Jews say in return, “Merry Christmas!” Though, sadly, more and more in hyper-politically correct America, people are opting for the bland, safe “Happy Holidays.”
  2. Hmmm… Am I the only one to put together the fact that muslims have the same punishment for the devil as they have for women? I wonder what belief system could countenance such a monstrosity! Oh, yeah … islam.

Drudge Headline(s):

  1. Clashes Break Out at Hong Kong Protests…

  2. Deadline looms to clear streets…

  3. Women targeted in sex assaults…

Quick Reaction:

  1. Ummmm… Hello! The government in question is the communist government of China. You won’t win this by protesting in the streets, and the U.S. government will not help you. You and I have to understand that with Obama doing everything he can to dismantle American power, the rest of the world is poised to enter a great dark age. The only hope for all of us is that with the possibilities for the rapid dissemination of information, this dark age might be short-lived.
  2. Uhhhhh… Yep. That’s what totalitarians do. Then if the deadline passes, they deal with it as they did in Tiananmen Square.
  3. Well. What a surprise! A bunch of men and women get together in a situation fraught with tension and the potential for violence, and women are sexually assaulted. Oh, and in this situation, there’s no overarching moral structure resulting from Christianity — the only belief system that expressly forbids the assault of anyone — in place. It would be a surprise if there were no sexual assaults. Oh, and let’s pretend that women are every bit the physical equal of men and can shrug off these assaults as if they’re nothing, right? If that were the case, then you’d hear about an equal number of women sexually assaulting men! We don’t really hear that very often, do we…

As if in further illustration…


Drudge Headline(s): 

  1. UPDATE: 2 teachers accused of group sex with student free on bail…
  2. Male student was bragging…

Quick Reaction:

  1. The two women teachers are free on bail.
  2. The male student was bragging. These two Drudge headlines pretty neatly sum up the difference between men and women. Men are the aggressors, women are the beckoners. When either men or women break the many and long well-understood rules of that relationship, women suffer more.
  3. I’m guessing this story has played itself out many, many, many times — millions  of times — before in the past… long before it became a tsk tsk, shameful thing. I agree it’s a shameful thing, but it’s not out of the ordinary. See point #5.
  4. I’m guessing further that the idea of high school girls trading various intimate favors in exchange for grades has never been all that uncommon either. See point #5.
  5. Bottom line: both the teachers and the boy either had really bad upbringings, or they’re simply products of our increasingly amoral society.
  6. One more thing: just arresting people for things that the rest of society has been encouraging more and more enthusiastically will never solve the problem.

  • Look for a lot more of this as European economies accelerate their downward skid.
