"When clowns swarm, go for the juggler." ~ Mac Siccar

Put your money where your mind is

When you become the richest man in the world you magically discover what people should be reading.

Jeff Bezos, who has netted $119 billion from Amazon, is no longer selling a book criticizing the transgender lunacy: When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment.

So I went over to Barnes and Noble, and there it is. I like to read on a screen, because my eyes are dated, and sure enough B&N has a screen reader thingy called Nook. I downloaded the app to my phone, on which I now do most of my reading.

From now on I'll check B&N first for books. You can also purchase When Harry Became Sally at its publisher's website, Encounter Books. Check them every now and then and support them.

The author of When Harry is Ryan T. Anderson. Here is who Amazon censored:
 
Anderson’s research has been cited by two U.S. Supreme Court justices, Justice Samuel Alito and Justice Clarence Thomas, in two Supreme Court cases.

He received his bachelor of arts degree from Princeton University, graduating Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude, and he received his doctoral degree in political philosophy from the University of Notre Dame. His dissertation was titled: “Neither Liberal Nor Libertarian: A Natural Law Approach to Social Justice and Economic Rights.”

Anderson has made appearances on ABC, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, and Fox News. His work has been published by theNew York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, the Harvard Health Policy Review, the Georgetown Journal of Law and Public Policy, the Weekly Standard, and National Review.

He is the John Paul II Teaching Fellow in Social Thought at the University of Dallas, an adjunct professor of philosophy and political science at Christendom College, a member of the James Madison Society at Princeton University, a Fellow of the Institute for Human Ecology at the Catholic University of America, and a Visiting Fellow at the Veritas Center at Franciscan University.

Sounds like somebody worthy of censorship. The person in charge of censoring him is of course Jeff Bezos, whom you made the riches man in the world by buying your underwear on his website:
 
Bezos eats exotic foods, such as octopus and roasted iguana. In May 2014, the International Trade Union Confederation named Bezos the "World's Worst Boss", with its general secretary Sharan Burrow saying: "Jeff Bezos represents the inhumanity of employers who are promoting the North American corporate model.",  while in 2019, Harvard Business Review, which ranked Bezos the best-performing CEO for 4 years in a row since 2014, did not rank him even in the top 100 citing Amazon's "relatively low ESG (environment, social, and governance) scores" that reflect "risks created by working conditions and employment policies, data security, and antitrust issues.

Bezos is known for creating an adversarial environment at Amazon, as well as insulting and verbally abusing his employees. As journalist Brad Stone revealed in his book The Everything Store, Bezos issued remarks to his employees such as "I'm sorry, did I take my stupid pills today?", "Are you lazy or just incompetent?", and "Why are you ruining my life?". Additionally, Bezos reportedly pitted Amazon teams against each other, and once declined to give Amazon employees city bus passes in order to discourage them from leaving the office.

Jeff created something called Prime for which people pay $119 (plus taxes) a year so that they can received in two days (sometimes) stuff with prices jacked up to cover the (sometimes) speedy delivery.

But he's not that clever as a business man. Banned author Anderson says: "My prediction is that in the short run I’ll sell thousands more copies of the book thanks to Amazon's censorship." Let's all help that come true.

Why is The Left so violent?
Here's the latest of many examples. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said late on Monday night that Antifa attacked his home in Washington, D.C., and threatened his wife and newborn baby. “Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel,” Hawley wrote on Twitter. “They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door.

What does all this mean? Pence knows. We don't.
Speculation is swirling around the vice president regarding what he may or may not do, and what he is legally permitted or required to do, when ballots from the electors show up in Washington on January 6. The vice president is charged by the Constitution's 12th Amendment with opening the ballots from the electors. Given that, what do these events mean: Read And Comment.
Is this election politics -- or war?
Can we reverse that to assert that politics is just war by other means? Three military officers are suggesting that about this election. Thomas McInerney is a political commentator and a retired Air Force Lieutenant General, who served in top military positions under the President of the United States and Secretary of Defense.

Church can help you cope with the Kung Flu
We know that regular church attendance improves our emotional well-being. Pew Research, for example, found two years ago that actively religious people are more likely than their less-religious peers to describe themselves as “very happy.” Now we learn from Gallup that only those who attended religious services weekly saw a positive change between 2019 and 2020 in how they rated their mental health.

May you live in interesting times ~ The Don
Former Green Beret, now Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller[/caption] Never bet against The Donald, and never underestimate him. Here are some of the possible big things. 1. State legislators act. The Constitution gives them the right to direct the manner in which electors will be chosen in their states, Adam Mill writes. In 2000, the Supreme Court noted  that, “the state legislature’s power to select the manner for appointing electors is plenary,” and that, “it may, if it so chooses, select the electors itself.” Read And Comment.

Joe and John want you to eat bugs and weeds
"Then we'll tell them to eat bugs." And drink sewage. Joe Biden and John Kerry are alike in every way except hair. Both have slopped at the public trough for decades, preening in the slavish adoration of a complicit media. Both are stupid. Both are fools. Both reassure us that anyone whose giant ego has superceded their modest intelligence can have a brilliant career in government. Read And Comment.
Has anyone actually seen John Durham?
He's the U.S. Attorney in Connecticut supposedly investigating the coup against President Trump. He got that assignment in May 2019. Since then, all we know about him is that he posed for the rather stern photo on the right. Perhaps that's meant to reassure us. Read And Comment.
