"Toxic masculinity' saves lives
My favorite part "I got stabbed and sliced eight times. They got me in my head, chest and both hands. There was blood everywhere. They were saying, 'Islam, Islam!'. I said again, 'F*** you, I’m Millwall!'" (I found this full quote elsewhere.)
So called "toxic masculinity" is a strength and an asset. It is the thing that keeps evil from winning.
Well done, Lion of London Bridge Larner!

Socialized Medicine Kills
Frankly, it seems pretty clear this is murder, and that justice would include the High Court members and the hospital officials facing the death penalty.
Today's testimony: Trump exonerated, Comey worthless, Democrats insane
1. Trump told the truth. Comey told him three times that he was not the target of an investigation. Comey confirmed this and identified the dates. The mainstream media and their anonymous sources lied.
2. Trump did not tell Comey to close down the investigation into Russian meddling in the election, and even said if there's evidence then it must be pursued, even if it involved people connected to Trump. Again, the MSM lied.
3. Comey intentionally leaked information in order to try to get a special prosecutor. He also kow-towed to Loretta Lynch and denied Hillary Clinton was under investigation, when she was. Comey is a coward, as we as a liar, and by virtue of not living up to his oath of office, a traitor, at least in spirit. Steele is vindicated, and the MSM again shown to be liars.
There was nothing at all in Comey's sworn testimony that supports the cranky "theories" of Trump-Russia collusion. In fact, Comey even made clear that the FBI never touched the DNC servers; they simply took the word of a third party that Russians hacked them. Good grief!
4. The anti-Trump MSM/left/Democrat complex is so besodden with TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) that they cannot let go. They began with a sentence (impeach and expel from office), moved to a verdict (Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election from Mrs. Clinton), and although they have no evidence and their "best" source just refuted their arguments, the conclusion they draw from this is given by Vox & Matthew Iglesias below. The Dems and the left are clearly entirely disconnected from reality at this point. That's the definition of insanity, a state of mind so disordered one cannot identify reality. This describes them perfectly.

Islam, Terror, and Sharia
An excerpt from Dougherty: "The pattern is by now familiar. Even as an Islamic terrorist killer’s proclamations about Allah’s will are still ringing in victims’ ears, these individuals are already declaring that the true danger from the attack is an Islamophobic backlash, and that you’re more likely to die by drowning in your own swimming pool than from a terrorist attack. Do they know how callous that sounds? Do they not realize that sensible human beings react differently to a car accident than to a murder plot?"
I'd add several points. First, cars aren't plotting ways to increase the number and lethality of accidents. Terrorists are. Second, terrorism is not fundamentally about killing people, it is about effecting political change. Theoreticians of terrorism -- including Karl Marx, Marxist-Leninists, Qtubists among them -- explicitly develop this idea. Counting numbers of victims is thus a stupid way of measuring the effects of terrorism, if that's all one does. When people in the West start censoring themselves and otherwise trying to placate those who use terror, terrorists achieve their goals. And frankly, the ultimate problem is not terrorism, it's political Islam. It's sharia and sharia supremacy, and as the idiots who worry about "Islamophobia" keep pointing out, correctly, the vast majority of sharia supremacists are not terrorists.
And here's another even more powerful article, from Ghassan Charbel, editor of Asharq Al-Awsat. It's a piece on the problem of Islamic terrorism, written from a Muslim's perspective. I found it quite gripping. I reprint it in its entirety below, just in case they don't archive it for long. (Incidentally, Nakba is the Palestinians' term for the disaster that befell them in 1948, and Naksa for the disaster that befell them in 1967. I don't know whether they have a similar term for the disasters that have befallen them in having leaders who are effectively indistinguishable from the SS-Totenkopfverbände when it comes to Jews.)

Stranger than Fiction: Communist press exposes "free press" creating Fake News
Update: I googled "Mark Antro" and found the tweet that shows CNN staging the protest -- certainly looks to be exactly what Antro and People's Daily claim. I'm unsure, but I think this link will show it.
June 6, 1944 and June 5, 1967
Here's an interesting Hoover Institution interview of historian Michael Oren on the Six Day War. And below is General Eisenhower's Order of the Day for June 6, 1944. (Click on it for a larger view.)

Germany, Paris Accord, and NATO; Thank You Mr. Trump!
The United States should stay out of international arrangements that commit us to regulate our economy to satisfy international environmental agendas, the better part of which have nothing to do with environmental quality, and everything to do with rent-seeking and political power grabs.
There's the expected end-of-the-world hysteria over this. The Germans seem particularly upset, especially after being told by Trump to quit being NATO deadbeats. Merkel indignantly responded that Germany will now chart an independent course, and Foreign Minister Gabriel became hysterical, accusing Trump of weakening the West and destroying Western values. Hahaha! The Germans' reaction makes me visualize some 30-year-old college graduate living in his parents' basement playing video games. He's suddenly told he should go out and find a job, and responds with outraged shrieks about the unfairness of it, and runs off to join the anti-Trump "resistance." The Germans have already greatly increased their energy costs and weakened their economy by "going green" with respect to energy, with zero environmental gains to show for it. I guess that's what Gabby means by "Western values." And Frau Merkel's heroic "we shall go it alone"is silly. Yes, Germany spends a miniscule 1.2% of its GDP on defense; they are not they are not prepared to be independent and have no will to be. This is posturing.
I think Trump is right. Bad international deals (e.g. Paris)? Get out of them. Good ones (e.g. NATO)? Get them right and then insist our partners living up to the terms. That's the art of the deal.
Pay up, deadbeat Germans. (Kind of like you want the deadbeat Greeks to pay!)
