Mixed results in Bavaria's election indicate typical German caution

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2018-10-14 14:27

33-year-old Bavarian Green party leader Katharina Schulze is young and vivacious.  Neither the AfD nor the other parties had such a charismatic leader on display.

The biggest gainer in today's Baravian state election is the left-wing Green Party with a current gain of around 9 points over its 2013 result. That is, if you don't include the gain of over 10 points by the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, which rose from zero in 2013 since they were not on the ballot then.

The AfD was only formed in 2013 and in those five years has risen to a position hovering between 2nd and 3rd most popular in Germany as a whole. In conservative Bavaria today, though, they came in fourth, following closely behind a right-leaning Southern Germany party called "Free Voters."

Rush Limbaugh called Adolf Hitler a 'murderous antisemite' on his radio show today

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2018-10-04 20:02

Rush Limbaugh plays it safe with Jews by pretending they don't exist. But antisemites do! Antisemites from the past, that is, like Adolf Hitler. In this way Limbaugh is an enabler helping Jews be invisible.

I DON'T LISTEN TO RADIO SHOW HOST RUSH LIMBAUGH AT HOME; only when I am driving in my car. Only there can I bring in the San Antonio conservative station that carries his show between 11 am and 2 pm. I turned him off at about 12 noon today when I made my last stop; when I took off again to head home, he was mentioning Omaha Beach in reference to the failure of American voters to know what it was, let alone to know what it should mean to them (or to our country).

Grassley pursues false testimony by Ford about polygraph experience

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2018-10-03 00:21

THIS IS THE MOST HOPEFUL THING I'VE SEEN SO FAR regarding the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings on Brett Kavanaugh. An ex-boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford sent a letter to Chairman Chuck Grassley (left) describing his knowledge of Prof. Ford advising a friend (Monica L McLean) on how to take a polygraph test.

Gregg Re and John Roberts wrote a good report for Fox News online. I am just going to quote from it here:

In a pointed, no-holds-barred letter Tuesday evening that referenced the ex-boyfriend's declaration, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley demanded that attorneys for Ford turn over her therapist notes and other key materials, and suggested she was intentionally less than truthful about her experience with polygraph examinations during Thursday's dramatic Senate hearing.

"Your continued withholding of material evidence despite multiple requests is unacceptable as the Senate exercises its constitutional responsibility of advice and consent for a judicial nomination," Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote.

Why I think Blasey Ford lied under oath

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2018-09-29 11:27

Dr. Blasey Ford, whom we are expected to take as "highly credible", exhibits a typical expression during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Sept. 27 at which she accused a federal judge of attempting to rape her when she was 15 years old - 36 years ago.


UPDATE: Blasey Ford one of 11 authors of 2008 research article titled “Meditation with Yoga, Group Therapy with Hypnosis, and Psychoeducation for long-term depressed mood: A randomized pilot trial". Scroll down to end.

By Carolyn Yeager

I WROTE ON SEPT. 22 THAT I DID NOT BELIEVE Christine Blasey Ford's claims of attempted rape that she laid out in her published statement prior to the public hearing. Contrary to the Jew York Times editorial board, who lie unashamedly and without consequence, I still do not believe Blasey Ford's testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee was credible. Yet everyone in media and politics, both liberal and conservative, proclaims her to have been very credible and also a very sympathetic witness (although some also believe Kavanaugh). It is fully accepted that she is a victim of something.

“Me Too” goes predictably too far

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2018-09-23 22:59

Deborah Ramirez, a Jewish New York woman, is the latest accuser with an uncorroborated 35-year old story of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at another drunken party.


By Carolyn Yeager

IT NEVER REQUIRED A GENIUS to predict where the “Me Too” movement would lead when we got into the heated environment of the mid-term elections and the nomination of a conservative supreme court justice. That it would be politicized, and by women for what they consider their own special radical women's issues, was predictable.

And now we're here, in a disgusting slime pit of female accusations hoping to take the place of the ballot box or reasoned, fair debate and sifting of evidence. This is, as I said in my prior post, the new Democrat Party Totalitarian-Bolshevik use of the Show Trial, as was put on in Vladimir Lenin and Joself Stalin's communist regime, appearing again as the new Democrat party strategy and tactics. Destruction by allegation. Because the next step is to say Brett Kavanaugh's name must be withdrawn for the reason he can never fully clear his name.

In this age of belief dismissing evidence, I already don't believe Chrissy Blasey

The crime of the century took place against this reclusive California  therapist. We are soon going to be privileged to hear her traumatized memories of what befell her at the hands of teenage boys who will eventually turn into despised old, white men.


By Carolyn Yeager

WHO OF SOUND MIND WOULD BELIEVE HER?  Well, I can tell you, I just called my sister-in-law, a dyed-in-the-wool democrat, to find out if she had bought in to this craziness, and the answer is yes. Not that she is really of sound mind. She thinks American women are going to come out of the woodwork to vote for Democrats in November because of this woman's story. The democrats have gone insane (take Rep. Swalwell, for example, another Californian). They really must be prevented from attaining to government power again because they are akin to the Bolsheviks who carried out the revolution in Russia in 1918—all restraint is gone. For them, Trump is not a serious president and must be gotten rid of, just as the Czar had to be gotten rid of back then. And we know how far that went, and for how long.

The pendulum swings—it's our turn now

The Democrats were anticipating what can happen to their "great society" with the retirement of just one Supreme Courts justice, Anthony Kennedy (pictured), while Trump is president. It just happened.


By Carolyn Yeager

EARLY IN MY LIFE, I experienced the cultural takeover of the U.S. by the Left with the Warren Supreme Court and all that it entailed. Now I have lived to see the pendulum begin to swing back in the opposite direction … as it always does.

My good friend Ray Goodwin likes to bring up that pendulum imagery, saying “Never fear, it will come back our way eventually. It has to.

Trump's shocks to the System are the best thing going

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2018-06-10 14:40

Already iconic photo of US president Trump resisting the persuasions of his European allies at the June 2018 G7 Summit in Quebec, Canada.


By Carolyn Yeager

IT'S BEING ASKED IF DONALD TRUMP IS TURNING THE UNITED STATES AWAY FROM THE INTERNATIONAL ORDER that was established after the Second World War.

I certainly hope so. And I am more encouraged that this is so by his performance at the G7 Summit in Quebec. Let me just say that I approve of what he is doing. I have learned that he is always several steps ahead of me, so as I am nervous and worried every time there is a flare-up about the methods he uses, I eventually recognize that he was right (and successful) and I was too timid.

Then I say of him, he is brighter and braver than I, by a long shot, thus I should have faith from now on. Of course, it's not that easy, but still, Trump is becoming more, not less, of a hero to me. I'm getting used to his saying and doing what shocks us, mostly only because it “never happened before.” He is continually breaking protocol, for sure. It's like, oh my god, now what?

Write your congressperson opposing the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of 2018 introduced yesterday

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2018-05-25 12:17

THIS  DANGEROUS  US CONGRESS BILL CONFLATES CRITICISM OF iSRAEL WITH ANTI-SEMITISM and has the support of both major parties. Some of its exact language is as follows:

A Bill to provide for the consideration of a definition of anti-Semitism for the enforcement of Federal anti-discrimination laws concerning education programs or activities.

(D)iscrimination against Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, and members of other groups violates Title VI when that discrimination is based on the group’s actual or perceived shared ancestry or ethnic characteristics’.

The 2010 Dear Colleague letter cautioned schools that they ‘‘must take prompt and effective steps reasonably calculated to end the harassment, eliminate any hostile environment, and its effects, and prevent the harassment from recurring,’’ but did not provide guidance on current manifestations of anti-Semitism, including discriminatory anti-Semitic conduct that is couched as anti-Israel or anti-Zionist.

Merkel's new Foreign Minister Heiko Maas: “I went into politics because of Auschwitz”

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2018-03-14 19:07

Heiko Maas wants to make a big splash as Germany's new foreign minister.


By Carolyn Yeager

STILL STUCK UNDER ANGELA MERKEL, GERMANY IS GOING FROM BAD TO WORSE. The only silver lining is that this new government is the weakest it's ever been. It may not last out the 3.5 years left to it.

The dearth of talent from which to form a cabinet is astonishing. The tired old faces have been pushed out (except for Merkel's), but the new ones are at best uninspiring. At worst, like with the the very slight and unimposing former justice minister Heiko Maas as the new Foreign Minister, it's hard not to laugh out loud. Where is the gravitas a foreign minister should have?
