Althea Bernstein said she was set on fire by four white guys in the middle of the street in Madison. The story was clearly bogus but the media and BLM amplified it. After local and federal investigations it’s finally been confirmed that there is zero evidence to support her claim
They have security camera footage showing her entire drive on the night when she said the flame throwing white supremacists attacked her at a stoplight. No attack. No white supremacists.
But of course the media outlets that ran with her claim will not retract or even acknowledge the new development. BLM will not apologize for pushing the false story. And the police will not charge Bernstein with a crime.
We live in an environment where hate hoaxes are rewarded but almost never punished. Which means we will only get more and more of them. This is by design.

It's crazy that we let people ride bicycles down the street. Like I know you want to exercise, so do I, but I'm not going to start doing pushups in the middle of the highway. Streets are for cars. Take your bike to the park.
It blows my mind every time I'm in a line of cars all trying to navigate around some weirdo on his bike. How is this legal?
And the thing is, if I ever accidentally hit one of these morons, I'll be facing jail time even though they were the one playing with their toy in the street

This is what trans indoctrination of children looks like, from HBO's new documentary promoting and celebrating child abuse. The boy here is 4 years old. His parents decided that he is "gender expansive." Later they decide he's a girl. #BoycottHBO
A couple of years later, the parents get divorced and decide that never mind he actually is a boy. The doc is horrifying and evil but it does unintentionally show that kids become "trans" because their parents are confused, miserable, and projecting issues onto their children.
Four kids featured in the doc. Two are children of divorce, one is the daughter ("son") of a lesbian with no dad in the picture. The other has married parents who are clearly and unashamedly pushing him ("her") into it for attention from the media.

Apparently most people have had dreams where they’re falling. I have never had this dream in my life but it sounds really fun. Like a free, no-risk sky diving trip. Why do people describe it as a nightmare? Sounds like a blast.
Then again I rarely have dreams at all. My sleep is mostly dreamless. A black abyss. Explains a lot I guess.
Dreaming in general is undignified and unmanly. Real men never stoop to indulging in such fantasies.

The Left has been shouting about the need for “evidence” in these election fraud claims. I agree that evidence is needed. But I don’t believe that they actually give a damn about evidence in principle. Here’s a partial list of claims they’ve recently advanced without evidence:
-Racist cops are hunting black people
-There’s a hate crime epidemic against trans people
-Brett Kavanaugh is a serial rapist
-Donald Trump is a Russian asset
-Jussie Smollett was assaulted by racist white Trump supporters
-A climate change apocalypse will happen in 11 years
-Your mask will protect you from the virus
-Lockdowns are necessary to slow the spread
-Men can get pregnant
-Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed illegitimately

I am fully on board with waiting to see if they can prove it in court, but when someone is all over TV claiming to have evidence of the greatest crime in American history, and no one to include the other people on her legal team have seen it, the rational response is skepticism.
What a lot of people on this site are doing instead is taking an “Ill believe it until I’m given good reason to not believe it” approach. This is totally irrational. And if conservatism is not rational anymore, we’re lost. Rationality is dead.
So the point is not that Powell is definitely lying. It’s that she’s claiming something absolutely extraordinary and extraordinary claims should ALWAYS be treated not with dismissal but thoughtful skepticism — unless and until proof is offered.

If Biden wins, Trump 2024 is not the path forward. We don't need our own 78 year old running. If the Right really can't find anyone but Trump to carry the mantle then we're a dead movement anyway. I don't believe that. We have an enormous opportunity to build and grow right now.
There are some younger, talented, smart, effective potential leaders of the movement. Let's give them a chance.
I'm worried about a situation where Trump loses, announces his intention to run again, then we're the Trump Club for another 8 years, with a nasty primary battle in 2024 where a number of our talented up and comers are tossed to the side in favor of a guy who's nearly 80.
