North Korea Video Puts White House, Capitol Hill in Crosshairs

By Rick Pearcey • April 27, 2017, 11:37 AM

Myles Burke reports at the U.K. Telegraph:

Pyongyang's latest propaganda video puts the White House and U.S. troops in the crosshairs and stimulates a crescendo of missile strikes if the U.S. "kicks off aggression."

The video which was [posted] on the North Korean website Meari (Echo) today and portrays the White House, U.S. aircraft carriers and troops through the crosshairs of a targeting device. ‚Äč

The video "culminates in a series of missile strikes and simulated footage of Washington exploding into flames. It also carries a stark warning: 'The moment when (the enemy) kicks off aggression and provocations'," the Telegraph reports.

The production values of this propaganda are amateurish and bespeak an insular, crazed, and closed-down mentality. You feel a bit sorry for people who have lived under this kind of fanatical governing mentality.

Nevetheless, the message should be taken seriously. In this broken world, wisdom instructs us that individuals and nations should be prepared to counter -- with great force, if necessary -- any threat, crazed or otherwise -- that might might burst through your front door or second-story window.

Extremist "White Genocide" Drexel Prof Under Investigation as Donors and Students Flee

By Rick Pearcey • April 26, 2017, 08:12 AM

Lukas Mikelionis reports at HeatStreet:

A radical professor who once wished for "White Genocide" for Christmas and wanted to "vomit" after seeing someone give up their first-class airline seat to a soldier, is currently under investigation by his embattled employer, Drexel University, citing negative coverage that led to fleeing students and donors.

George Ciccariello-Maher has repeatedly come under fire for his outspoken social media posts. Last year December, the professor has shocked the people after saying "All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide." More recently came his much-criticized comment about the uniformed soldier on the airline.

"Philadelphia-based Drexel had previously investigated the 'white genocide' tweets and ended up claiming that its professor's comments fell under the category of 'protected speech' and that he wouldn't lose his job," HeatStreet reports.

"But according to documents acquired by InsideHigherEd, Drexel Provost Brian Blake sent an email to Ciccariello in this month, advising him that the institution will conduct 'a special committee of inquiry to investigate your conduct and provide findings and recommendations to me concerning your extremely damaging conduct'," according to HeatStreet.

"The reason for Drexel's renewed interest in 'investigating' Ciccariello?" HeatStreet asks. "It appears that the professor's social media posts been driving away many potential students and donors, a lifeline of financial support for the privately-owned university."

Former Obama Official: Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats to Influence Policy

By Rick Pearcey • April 25, 2017, 01:43 PM

Chris White reports at the Daily Caller:

A former member of the Obama administration claims Washington, D.C., often uses "misleading" news releases about climate data to influence public opinion.

Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama's administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion.

"What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I'd say, misleading, sometimes just wrong," Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data.

Hurricane frequencey is a case in point, according to Koonin. "He pointed to a National Climate Assessment in 2014 showing hurricane activity has increased from 1980 as an illustration of how federal agencies fudged climate data," White reports. "Koonin said the assessment was technically incorrect," according to White.

“What they forgot to tell you, and you don't know until you read all the way into the fine print, is that it actually decreased in the decades before that," the former Obama official said, according to the Daily Caller. 

Actually, according to Koonin, what at work here is not so much "forgetting" but, rather, achieving a desired result.

"Press officers work with scientists within agencies like the National Oceanic Administration (NOAA) and NASA and are responsible for crafting misleading press releases on climate, he added," according to the Daily Caller.

"Koonin is not the only one claiming wrongdoing," White continues. "House lawmakers with the Committee on Science, Space and Technology, for instance, recently jumpstarted an investigation into NOAA after a whistleblower said agency scientists rushed a landmark global warming study to influence policymakers," White reports.

"Koonin, who served under Obama from 2009 to 2011, went on to lament the politicization of science, suggested that the ethos should be to 'tell it like it is. You're a scientist and it is your responsibility to put the facts on the table'," the DC states.

Government-transmitted propaganda has consequences, of course. "NASA and NOAA's actions, [Koonin] said, are problematic, because 'public opinion is formed by the data that is formed from those organizations and appears in newspapers'," the DC reports.

The Daily Caller News Foundation requested comment from both NASA and NOAA, but "neither agency responded," according to the DC.

Climate Scientist Urges President Trump Not to Cave to Ivanka's "Climate Change Madness"

By Rick Pearcey • April 24, 2017, 12:05 PM

Thomas D. Williams writes at Breitbart:

In an open letter to Donald Trump, climate expert Dr. Duane Thresher has urged the President not to give in to his daughter Ivanka's misguided views on global warming and her insistence that the U.S. remain in the Paris climate agreement ratified by Barack Obama last August.

"Climate treaties like the Paris Agreement have little to do with climate," Thresher notes in his letter, which he made available to Breitbart News. "They are about economic competition. As the greatest economy in the history of the world, other countries will do anything to cripple the United States."

Attention Social Justice Warriors: Please Stop Writing! It's Cultural Appropriation!

By Rick Pearcey • April 20, 2017, 11:20 AM

David Hogberg writes at American Spectator:

Last week model Shanina Shaik was accused of cultural appropriation when she braided her hair for the annual music and arts festival in Coachella, California.

I didn't realize how serious this was until I read Jessica Andrews's piece at Teen Vogue where she claims the Coachella festival "is mired in cultural appropriation" because of the white people there who dress up in "[b]indis, feathered headpieces, dashikis, [and] war paint."

Upon further research, I discovered writer Adrienne Keene who suggests that dressing in Native American gear is cultural appropriation unless you buy it from a Native American.

And, to my horror, I learned that white male chefs making money by cooking ethnic food is also a form of cultural appropriation, according to Michael W. Twitty.

"Well, these writers have enlightened me," Hogberg admits. "I'm now very concerned about this injustice. So concerned, in fact, that I implore Jessica Andrews, Adrienne Keene, and Michael W. Twitty to stop writing. After all, writing is also cultural appropriation."

Acts of violence and physical intimidation aimed at conservatives on American campuses are growing -- and college administrators, who sympathize with the progressive fascist lynch mobs doing the misdeeds, are generally fine with the mayhem.

NBC Sportswriter Questions Display of American Flag at Baseball Games

By Rick Pearcey • April 18, 2017, 11:51 AM

"Will you keep politics out of sports, please. We like sports to be politics-free," tweeted incredibly self-unaware sports writer Craig Calcaterra of NBC.

Or is it that he's incredibly aware only of himself? My views, my feelings, my "truth."

That sinkhole egoism may not be in your best interests, Mr. Sportswriter. A kind of myopic fanaticism. Jim Jones land. Kool-Aid, yes; American flags, not so much.

Or perhaps TV man seethes with animus against the defining, enduring, and liberating mainstream meaning of the American ethos. Upon which ground, the magnificence of sport in America has been able to flourish.

You do realize that the U.S. ethos is rather remarkable for encouraging people to recognize, unpack, and develop their publicly actionable God-given talents and abilities?

But despise that liberating and humane ethos, and politics may be the least of your problems.

Check out how well sport is doing in Venezuela these days. I hear they're eating baseballs for breakfast.

Wrong kind of tweet in that socialist utopian clubhouse and you could be out. Really out. Out of a job and out of a life.

On the bright side: No more "politics."

Here's more from Rick Moran at American Thinker. And Newsbusters.

Pearceys Meet With NFL Chaplains, Wives

By Rick Pearcey • April 13, 2017, 04:32 PM

Nancy and I enjoyed a tremendous "Seminar-Workshop" afternoon yesterday from approximately 1:30-4:20 pm with several NFL chaplains and their wives at the Hyatt Place near the Galleria in Houston. 

Nancy presented some material on powerpoint, and both of us discussed a "test everything" Christian worldview and its holistic, real-world applications with this sharp group on staff with Athletes in Action.

Among the teams represented by chaplains were the Houston Texans, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. One of the chaplains says he may be transitioning to work more in baseball, with the New York Yankees.

The individuals in this group are so intriguing and motivated, and our discussion so lively, that Nancy and I didn't actually get around to meeting everyone and noting all the teams represented. That just means we have more work to do the second half.

Embattled O'Reilly Out at Fox?

By Rick Pearcey • April 12, 2017, 08:54 AM

Cathy Burke reports at Newsmax:

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly announced Tuesday he's taking a long-planned vacation, but New York magazine's Gabriel Sherman reported there's speculation the embattled star may be gone for good.

According to Sherman, O'Reilly's decision to go off the air amid a reported sex harassment scandal and advertiser boycott "has the appearance of a suspension."

"A Fox News spokesperson told Sherman that O'Reilly will return April 24," according to Newsmax. "But citing four unnamed network sources, Sherman said talk inside Fox News is that "tonight's show could be his last."

Sofia Petkar and Lizzie Stromme report at the UK Express:

The vehicle drove into crowds on Drottninggatan (Queen Street) -- one of the city's major pedestrian streets, just before 3 pm local time, before crashing into Åhlens Mall.

A number of people have been injured, with unconfirmed reports of at least three people killed.

Stockholm police confirmed they are dealing with the incident -- which is being treated as a suspected terror attack according to local media.

Armed police remain on the scene, and the area has been cordoned off.

"Reports have also emerged of a secondary incident -- a shooting -- in a separate area of the city," according to Express.

[A] NYC Uber driver picks up a female passenger in the Bronx. After she was verbally abusive to him he asks her to get out of his car and find a new ride. In the nearly nine minute video she threatens to accuse him of rape, all while he's filming.

Nearly 9 minutes of pathetic nuttiness and bile from an Uber passenger. A temper tantrum of egoistic disrepect that you wouldn't believe unless you heard it for yourself. Whew! Listen at Uber own risk.

England Falling: Charity Under Fire for Removing Word "Easter" From Upcoming Event

By Rick Pearcey • April 5, 2017, 11:04 AM

Sara Gonzales reports at the Blaze:

The Church of England is sparring with a charity organization in the United Kingdom that removed the word "Easter" from its annual Easter egg hunt.

National Trust, a nature and environmental conservation charity, has held the popular annual event for a decade, and each year it has been branded as the Easter Egg Trail. But this year, the charity decided on a different name with one obvious key word missing.

The event's new name? The Great British Egg Hunt.

According to the Blaze, "Cadbury, the chocolate candy company that sponsors the yearly event, explained that they wanted to appeal to non-Christians."

“We invite people from all faiths and none to enjoy our seasonal treats," the company is quoted as saying, according to the UK Telegraph.

"The Church of England denounced the decision," however, "saying it was an attempt to airbrush faith from the Christian holiday," the Blaze reports.

"This marketing campaign . . . highlights the folly in airbrushing faith from Easter," a church spokesman said, according to the Blaze.

The Archbishop of York, Dr. John Sentamu, "sharply criticized the decision, pointing out that John Cadbury, the company’s original founder, was a Christian and that the act was disrespectful to his name," the Blaze reports.

“The Cadburys were Great Quaker industrialists. If people visited Birmingham today in the Cadbury World, they will discover how Cadbury’s Christian faith influenced his industrial output,” Sentamu said, according to the Blaze.

John Cadbury "built houses for all his workers, he built a Church, he made provision for schools. It is obvious that for him Jesus and justice were two sides of the one coin," the Archbishop said. "To drop Easter from Cadbury’s Easter Egg Hunt in my book is tantamount to spitting on the grave of Cadbury."

Victoria Friedman reports at Breitbart:

At a rural town hall meeting in La Bazoche-Gouet, French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen criticised her globalist rival Emmanuel Macron for 'insulting the people and France.' She promised her supporters they would "never get used to terrorism" saying she would bring "Islamist fundamentalism to its knees."

"Current polling suggests likely voter intention puts Marcon just 0.5 per cent ahead of Le Pen (26 per cent/25.5 per cent) for first round voting," which occurs April 23, Breitbart reports.

CNN Hires "Reporter" Caught Falsely Accusing Trump of Making Racist Comment

By Rick Pearcey • April 3, 2017, 02:30 PM

"CNN has hired reporter April Ryan, who has repeatedly clashed with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in recent days, as a political analyst," Andrew Kugle reports at the Free Beacon.

According to the Free Beacon:

Back in February, Ryan accused President Trump of making a racially-charged comment that he never said.

"When he was Candidate Trump, he said things like, you know, ‘We made this country,' meaning white America, not necessarily black," Ryan said during a White House press briefing.

"I don't know why you would say that. What do you mean?" Spicer asked.

"No, no, no. He said that. I heard him say that," Ryan said.

"Ryan could not provide evidence that Trump made the statement when asked to do so," the Beacon reports. (emphasis added) "Nonetheless, she persisted that Trump said the remark and told people to look it up themselves."

What she should have done is to present her evidence then and there for all to see -- or else withhold from attacking. Clearly, this episode does not speak well of April Ryan, no matter if she's hired by a hundred CNNs.

Meanwhile, let's think a moment about racism. As a general principle applicable to all of us, I would suggest that anyone who is determined to view all things, and to assess all things, and to "report" on all things through the lens of skin color and race is by defnition a racist.

And what a sad, tiny, misdirected, and dehumanizing existence that would be.

And how much better is it to be a liberated human being who can think and live beyond the thinness of skin. Who can enjoy the diversity of life without elevating it into an idol that falsely condemns and truly destroys.

Racist reporting and thinking are skin deep -- a way of non-being and alienation far too shallow for the depth and wonder of what it means to be a human being. No one should have to live that way -- much less embrace it.

There is no doubt in my mind that April Ryan and her new colleagues at CNN are better than this. Far better.

Unfortunately, and I yearn that this were not the case, it may take them a lifetime to escape the seductive chains of power through pigmentation -- a god that loves hate. A shortcut that never gets you home.

Right now, however, with this new hire, CNN reinforces its reputation as a propagandistic echo chamber. A bully pretending to serve. Free minds go elsewhere for food and drink.
