    The Four Horsemen - 12/03 to 12/10


    Study: U.S. Ranks 64th on List of Countries with Mass Shootings

    A study from the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) shows that the United States ranks 64th in the per capita frequency on the list of countries that witnessed mass shootings from 1998 to 2015.
    The study also found that while the U.S. constitutes 4.6 percent of the world’s population, “it makes up less than 1.15 percent of the mass public shooters” and less than 1.5 percent of their murders.

    CPRC used the study’s summary to explain: “Over the 18 years from 1998 to 2015, our list contains 2,354 attacks and at least 4,880 shooters outside the United States and 53 attacks and 57 shooters within our country. … Attacks in the US are not only less frequent than other countries, they are also much less deadly on average”.

    The CPRC’s findings on the number of mass shootings in America run completely counter to the mantra of the establishment media, Hollywood elites, and various gun control activists, but they are in line with academic research that seeks to present an unpoliticized view of the world.

    For example, in June, the New York Times claimed “at least 700 mass shootings” over a two-year time frame, and in 2015, actress Rose McGowan claimed 355 in 2015 alone. But a University of Alabama researcher found a much lower figure–a total of 90 mass shootings in America from 1966-2012

    Russia plans to conduct over 4,000 drills in 2019

    The Los Angeles Times reported Friday that “criminal proceedings against a Seattle man accused of trying to run over two Jewish men outside a Los Angeles synagogue have been suspended amid questions about his mental competency, officials said.”

    The “Seattle man” in question is Mohamed Abdi Mohamed, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Mogadishu, Somalia. According to the Times, Mohamed “was arrested Nov. 23 after police say he shouted anti-Semitic slurs toward a crowd of worshippers exiting Congregation Bais Yeshuda in Hancock Park. Investigators said Mohamed tried to run down two men with his car before speeding away and crashing.”

    However, “Mohamed’s family has said he holds no hatred toward the Jewish community or any other groups,” and of course their claims are to be taken at face value, with no investigation or further inquiry. Any other course of action would be “Islamophobic.”

    The Times added: “The FBI has been assisting in the investigation, but authorities have said they have no evidence of links between Mohamed and any known terror or hate groups.” What’s more, “he was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2015 and has been treated at mental health facilities in the Seattle area at least twice in recent years.”

    Well, then, this must be an open-and-shut case of mental illness, right? No jihad, no Islamic anti-Semitism, right?

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Calls Sarah Sanders a Liar

    More than 200 pro-Israel activists picketed what Haaretz described as the "largest ever pro-Palestinian student conference held at UCLA," letting members of the Hamas-backed anti-Semitic hate group Students for Justice in Palestine know that their radicalism and violence against Jews and Israel supporters will no longer go unchallenged on campus

    There is no difference at all between the worldview of Marc Lamont Hill, and that of the many radical leftists who currently comprise the Democratic Party. It isn't a liberal party anymore. It is a hard-left, quasi-Marxist pack of thugs whose philosophy is thoroughly steeped in racial hatred, anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism, and tribalism. In short, about as ugly as anything can possibly be

    When they can’t rebut criticism of Islam, Muslims and Leftists cry racism. Look at the state of the “world” that calls itself Islamic. It’s a world that completely lacks self-criticism, which leads it to blame its horrific state on everyone but itself. We in the West criticize the West and praise Islam, just like Muslims. This self-destructive streak of ours has to end or our worlds will resemble each other more than they already do

    The View co-host Joy Behar called Meghan McCain an “entitled bitch” and threatened to quit if the producers don’t “get this bitch under control.”
    Behar used, what was supposed to be a tribute to President George H.W. Bush, as an opportunity to trash President Trump, reports the Daily Mail.

    After she praised the late president for signing the Clean Air Act as president, Behar turned that praise into a club against Trump and a soapbox for her own left-wing politics.

    “This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did, and if I ever become a one-issue voter it will be about pollution and the greenhouse eff–” and this is where McCain jumped in.

    “Can we focus on the president, please. I don’t want to talk about Trump, we’re honoring a great president,” she said.

    Maryland Fed-Ex driver makes unscheduled stop to fold flag

    A Fed-Ex driver made an unscheduled stop while driving through a Maryland neighborhood and his good deed was caught on a home surveillance camera.

    Gail Cook posted the video on her Facebook page of the driver, Mike King, driving by her house and stopping when he saw that her flag pole had blown over and broke because of the high winds.

    Video shows King getting out of the truck, walking toward the fallen flag pole and pulling off the American flag, along with another flag.

    Then, King is seen walking toward the porch with the flags and folding them.

    A photo taken by the homeowner shows the flags folded neatly in a box on the porch. "He not only picked up the flag but folded it properly and put it away safely on our porch," Cook wrote. "Thanks FedEx! I hope he gets the recognition he deserves, I can't thank him enough!" Cook continued.

    King commented in the post that he couldn't just drive by and do nothing. "It's the Marine way," wrote King, who is a Marine veteran.

    House Democrats Plan Push to Criminalize Private Gun Sales
    House Democrats plan to introduce legislation criminalizing private gun sales once the new Congress is in session.

    Mother Jones reports that Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) met with gun control groups that included the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, the Center for American Progress, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and Gabby Giffords’ group. He asked them what they wanted, and a bill to criminalize private gun sales was on their wish list.

    So Thompson will sponsor legislation requiring a background check before someone may buy a gun from his neighbor, a co-worker to get a background check before buying a gun from a co-worker, and so forth. The bill will go so far as to require a son to get a background check before a father can give him a gun as a gift.

    Private gun sales are legal and have been an American tradition since 1791, the year the Second Amendment was ratified

    Poll Shows Huge Democrat Bias Toward Muslims Over Christians
    The same poll showed a three-point pro-Christian skew among Donald Trump’s voters and a huge 20-point pro-Muslim skew among Hillary Clinton voters.

    The massive bias among Clinton voters towards Muslims is a huge contrast to Trump voters’ more principled approach to religious requests on business.

    The poll asked, “Suppose a group of devout Christians [or devout Muslims] asked their employer to provide a private place for them to pray together. Even if it is a hardship [on business], do you think the employer should or should not accommodate the request?”

    The Democrats’ pro-Muslim bias exists despite the hostility of orthodox Islamic rule-books towards Christians, atheists, women, secularists, and democracy.

    The poll also showed that urbanites, young people, and women were far more supportive of Muslim believers than of Christians, despite Christianity’s orthodox support for secularism, sexual equality, and economic redistribution.

    However, the Democrats’ favor for Muslims is likely unconnected to Islam’s hostile scriptural requirements.

    In general, progressives strongly favor imposing variety on society because the resulting “diversity” fragments the coherent civic cultures which help ordinary Americans to manage their families and communities without rule by progressive-led government

    Turkey files arrest warrants for Saudi crown prince allies over Khashoggi murder

    "I think Prince Mohammed gave the order, or at least he knew about it, to butcher Khashoggi. Prince Mohammed ... he really was the original El Chapo, literally," said Louisiana Senator John Kennedy on Tuesday as US President Donald Trump was under pressure for maintaining support for the murderous prince.

    “There’s not a smoking gun, there’s a smoking saw,” South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said, referencing Trump administration comments that there is no “smoking gun” showing bi Salman ordered the killing.

    “You have to be willfully blind not to come to the conclusion that this was orchestrated and organized by people under the command of MBS and that he was intricately involved in the demise of Mr. Khashoggi,” Graham added

    UN Migration Pact Part Of The Plan To Extinguish Canadian Identity
    After reading the UN pact, I’m beginning to realize that Trudeau’s ill-considered “Welcome to Canada” tweet to the world was likely deliberate, as well as the language he uses to normalize illegal crossings.

    Immigration is the 3rd rail in Canadian politics. Canadians are afraid to speak “unpopular” opinions about immigration policy knowing they will be bludgeoned as racist by the government and their media lackeys. Our mainstream political parties are terminally corrupted by their pursuit of ethnic vote blocs, not one can be trusted. This divide and conquer splintering of the electorate has been made possible by the toxic lies of diversity and multiculturalism. The result is Canada has been turned into a mass immigration Ponzi Scheme that benefits the corporate and political class, your fate is mere collateral damage.

Socialism’s long record of failure “doesn’t mean new forms of socialism can’t gain a following.” Rove’s solution is for Republicans to “do the hard work of updating old arguments,” and “hone their arguments” against socialist policies in preparation for the 2020 presidential race.

    Welcome to 2500 years of dubious thinking about the power of rational persuasion and coherent argument to talk people out of bad ideas. It didn’t save Socrates from the hemlock, and it’s unlikely to change the minds of the worst-educated, most self-centered, and most pampered cohort in American history.

    This stubborn belief in the power of rational thought and knowledge to improve human life lies at the heart of modern political ideologies like Marxism and progressivism. Both assume that the knowledge useful for politically organizing a state or society is “scientific,” comprising principles and techniques that are beyond ideology and universally true. Hence the need for enlightened technocratic elites to control social institutions and use power in order to rationally arrange human existence more justly and efficiently.

    The flaw in this thinking was first identified by contemporaries of Plato, whose Republic imagined a utopia of elite Guardians educated to exercise totalitarian control over society. And the earliest critics of Plato’s flawed assumptions about human nature were likewise Greek writers such as Thucydides and Sophocles. Both argued that a human nature universally subject to irrational passions, free will, and a tragic world would always to some degree triumph over the rational mind.

    Yet despite the subsequent millennia in which history has demonstrated that the road to utopia is lined with mountains of corpses, the dream of creating heaven on earth by applying rational techniques of control and improvement over human beings has not lost its allure. In modern times, the decline of faith and the belief in a transcendent reality has made us even more vulnerable to political religions, those delusional visions of human power and will alone able to eliminate the tragic limits of earthly life, such as inequality, suffering, injustice, and violence.

    The Founders knew this history of political speculation going back to ancient Athens, and they agreed with Machiavelli that “it is necessary for whoever arranges to found a Republic and establish laws in it, to presuppose that all men are bad and that they will use their malignity of mind every time they have the opportunity.” This fundamental assumption also underlies the Constitution’s architecture, most famously laid out by James Madison in Federalist 10.

    To protect political freedom, Madison writes, the state must be organized to protect against “faction,” groups of citizens united and motivated “by some common impulse or passion, or interest, adverse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interest of the community as a whole.” Freedom nourishes faction and gives it scope, especially freedom of speech, which allows opinions to be publicized and conflict with those of others. Finally, faction is not a result of bad education or poverty, it is “sown in the nature of man,” which creates a “connection between his reason and his self-love,” and makes “his opinions and passions” a “reciprocal influence on each other.” To protect the freedom of all from this dynamic, the Founders checked and balanced and divided power so no one faction could dominate the rest and create tyranny.

    Notice that although Madison does mention “interest,” property and wealth, he says nothing about rational scientific truths or rational arguments as causes of factions or means for restraining them. We don’t as a people gather into parties over facts, scientific theories and mathematical formulas, rather than over factional purposes to which some, like global warming, can be put. Mainly that’s because the most important political disagreements concern questions that science or reason or facts alone can’t answer: What are human beings? What do we owe to others? Why do we do what we do? What is the best way of life? What is the highest good for a political community? And who should participate in governing?

    Most of us, then, are not going to be talked out of our political passions, any more than we will abandon our economic interests. Yet every election we hear over and over about the “partisan divide” that keeps us from rational discussions and solutions about important issues. Half an hour on any raucous internet, cable, or network news show will demonstrate that what we decry as “partisanship,” “polarization,” and even “hatred” are politics just as Madison understood it, and whose threat to freedom he guarded against by making “ambition counter ambition.”

    There are, however, differences between our world and the centuries before World War II that have exacerbated these factional passions. Our high level of material existence, safety, and comfort is on an unprecedented scale. One consequence has been the elevation of expectations for our existence far beyond what’s possible for flawed, passionate creatures like us. And these expectations never seem to be gratified, but only to escalate.

    The Greatest, Silent, and older Boomer Generations grew up in a harder, more dangerous, more contingent world of material want, disease, and daily physical labor. Their expectations were tempered by hard experience and constant reminders that their desires and dreams were a matter of indifference in such a world. More of them were skeptical about the Utopian promises of socialism and communism. These collectivist ideologies did see some success after initial enthusiasm, but invariably they failed because they couldn’t meet the expectations they had raised. As a consequence, collectivist ideologies have had to resort to murder, gulags, tyranny, and corruption––imposing by force what could not be won by the persuasion of success, as free-market capitalism has done.

    Millennials are a different breed. They have lived in this brave new world of affluence from childhood, and so have a much higher baseline standard of material comfort, and greater expectations for achieving their political ideals like universal free health care, guaranteed jobs, free college tuition, social harmony, and equality of outcomes rather than of opportunity. But they are continually disappointed and aggrieved because despite the serial failure of a century of socialist economies and social policies, our country hasn’t been eager to repeat those failures. This is the same childish mentality that has fueled the rise of political correctness, hate speech codes, whimpering “snowflakes,” and all the illiberal and oppressive policies that have followed.

    Finally, having spent 40 years in the university watching the degradation of scholarly disciplines, I’d like Rove to show me where he will find the millennial socialists educated enough in traditional subjects like history, philosophy, or critical thinking to be open to rational persuasion. A generation marked both by an elevated, unearned sense of self-regard, and an arrogant certainty about their own intellectual and moral superiority is more likely to scream and threaten rather than listen thoughtfully.

    Not all Millennials, of course, deserve this portrait. Millions reject the nostrums of fashionable leftism and trendy socialism. They have experienced a world more challenging than their parents’ basements or a college dorm room. They go to church, serve in the military, protect our streets, and raise their children to be virtuous. But because they are busy at these adult activities, they don’t have the impact on our culture and politics that subsidized activists and “social justice” warriors do. That’s why the establishment media ignores them.

    Will socialism, as Rove fears, start to attract more and more voters as the Boomers die off and the Democrat coalition of tribes expands? I don’t think so, and not because of Trump’s success in starting to reverse Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America, of which the current socialist enthusiasm is the logical culmination. Nor will socialism be rejected because Republicans fanned out across the country to meetings and town halls and made converts with refurbished messaging.

    Rather, our socialist poseurs are heading inexorably toward a looming economic disaster: the unfunded liabilities, mountains of government debt, and unsustainable entitlement spending, for which the reckoning is relentlessly growing closer. And who’s on the hook for that bill? Not most of us Boomers. The Millennials are going to be left holding the bag, and some hard lessons about an unforgiving reality and the eternal laws of compound interest will have to be learned.

    But crises are unpredictable and irrational, and as Thucydides said, bring men’s characters down to the level of their circumstances. That process of righting our fiscal ship is likely to be dangerous and rife with social disorder that will make our petty quarrels over tweets and porn stars seem quaint. Voters may even become sufficiently frightened for their economic future, and desperate enough to turn to socialism for solutions that don’t require anything from them beyond more of other people’s money.

    There’s no predicting how things will turn out in such circumstances, or how Millennials will respond. But one thing right now we know for sure: socialism will fail. It always has, and it always will.


    Huawei CFO Arrest is a ‘Declaration of War’ Says Editor of Global Times

    The arrest of a top Chinese technology executive by Canadian authorities acting at the behest of the United States is threatening to upend the Trump administration’s efforts to sustain a trade truce with China.

    The arrest of Sabrina Meng, the chief financial officer of China’s largest mobile phone marker, has been condemned by Chinese officials, who are calling for her immediate release. The U.S. has reportedly requested Meng be extradited to New York, where she would reportedly face federal charges of violating Iran sanctions.

    Hu Xijin, the editor in chief of the Global Times, described the arrest as a “declaration of war” against China, according to the New York Times

    Missouri High School Student Tries to Buy Assault Rifle After Pledging "Loyalty to Allah"
    BRANSON, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri high school student faces a felony charge after authorities say he posted on social media that he was going to buy an assault rifle and "make history."

    The Springfield News-Leader reports that 18-year-old William James Nelson, of Branson, was charged Thursday with making a terroristic threat. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

    Charging documents say Nelson told police that he planned to meet an unnamed individual that day to buy an AR-15 assault rifle.

    The Branson Police Department was tipped off before midnight Tuesday about a series of messages that Nelson allegedly sent from his account to a female classmate. In the messages, Nelson allegedly pledged "allegiance to Allah," asked where he could buy a gun and talked about needing a bullet proof vest.

    Why The Right Should Start Taking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Seriously

    Earlier this week, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put up a tweet so mind-numbingly stupid that simply calling it “factually incorrect” would be an insult to the word “incorrect.” As is to be expected in the social media world, folks on the right ripped the incoming congresswoman to shreds for it.

    Here were some of the typical responses: “This is factually incorrect!” “We cannot have someone this stupid in the government!” “This is what happens when we elect someone with no experience.” “Sure, this message is popular. Too bad it’s all wrong.”

    Take a moment and look at those responses again. Do they look familiar? They are the exact same arguments the politico class made against then-candidate Donald Trump for two straight years, right up until the point he carpet-bombed Hillary Clinton on election night

    The Religion of Leftism
    Over the last decade, America has moved drastically to the left. Not only are more people on the left than ever before, the left is further left than it’s ever been. This radical brand of progressivism has come to be known as “leftism”—an extreme yet increasingly dominant segment of the political spectrum.

    At the same time, America has grown more secular. According to Pew, “religious nones” are rapidly growing in number. These “nones” are most concentrated among millennials: 36% of millennials are religiously unaffiliated. Millennials happen to also be America’s most politically progressive generation.

    This probably isn’t a coincidence, especially since the same trends have occurred in a similar way in other parts of the world, such as Europe. While correlation doesn’t prove causation, politics and religion are so closely related that it’s hard to believe the simultaneous popularization of extreme leftism and secularism is insignificant.

    My theory is this: the country hasn’t actually become less religious. Many people have simply replaced traditional religion with leftism. Rather than associating with Christianity, for example, which demands repentance and promises persecution, they have opted for a religion that conveniently offers a sense of righteousness but denies the need to take responsibility for their own actions

    Denmark Deserves An ‘A’ For Effort In Confronting Jihad In 2018. But Is It Enough?
    It’s been quite a year in Denmark. In June, the Danish Parliament passed a law banning the burka and niqab. The media went nuts. “Slowly but surely,” warned the Independent, “Europe is undergoing a move towards restricting religious freedom for non-Christians … minorities are being treated as second-class citizens.” The Guardian headline read: “Muslims feel besieged.”

    Then, this summer, Denmark introduced new laws requiring children living in Muslim enclaves to spend at least 25 hours a week taking Danish language classes and learning about Danish values. The headline in the New York Times report on this development called it “[h]arsh,” said that some Danish politicians’ description of Muslim ghettos had “become increasingly sinister,” and cited a Social Democratic member of Parliament who drew a comparison to Nazi Germany. Time’s Amro Ali, who used words like “illiberal,” “xenophobic,” and “discriminatory” to describe the policy change, also brought up the Nazis. Richard Orange of the Guardian sang the same tune

    “God of wonders, some wonder why we pray for a football game. So I tell them in this game, every player on the field is willing to die for every person watching.

    And there is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for what is truly good.

    And so, God, I do pray for these players on this field and all the good they represent. Their fellow cadets and midshipmen, soldiers, sailors, Marines, firefighters, first responders, police, and countless others who lay down their lives daily in our defense because in your eyes, God, it’s not the critic who counts but those who actually step in to the arena. And so, almighty God, we who are willing to die for others, we salute you. Let this game begin. Amen."

    According to a press release from Chick-fil-A:

    Chick-fil-A is proud to support and honor the men and women in the military and their families who have served, are serving, and will serve our country.

    The Chick-fil-A pop-up restaurant is designed to bring fans of rival football teams together by creating a shared table. Members of the military will attend the event to participate in spirited competition, a shared meal and a watch party.

    Other activities include a card writing station to show military appreciation, giveaways, food and much more. Chick-fil-A will also be flying in Army and Navy veterans nominated by local franchise Operators located across the country to attend the pre-game ceremonies and the game.

    More UN Chicanery
    One thing about the agreement, in any event, is irrefutable: almost nobody in the Western world has been clamoring for this. It is, quite simply, a project of the globalist elites. It is a UN power-grab.

    It is something else, too: it is an effort to enhance the clout of the UN’s largest and most influential power bloc — namely, the Arab and Muslim states. Briefly put, whatever this deal is or is not, it is definitely not good news for the West, for freedom, or for national identity and security

    Andrew C. McCarthy: Why Trump Is Likely To Be Indicted By Manhattan US Attorney
    The major takeaway from the 40-page sentencing memorandum filed by federal prosecutors Friday for Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal attorney, is this: The president is very likely to be indicted on a charge of violating federal campaign finance laws.

    Moreover, campaign finance infractions are often settled by payment of an administrative fine, not turned into felony prosecutions. To be sure, federal prosecutors in New York City have charged them as felonies before – most notably in 2014 against Dinesh D’Souza, whom Trump later pardoned.

    In marked contrast, though, when it was discovered that Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign was guilty of violations involving nearly $2 million – an amount that dwarfs the $280,000 in Cohen’s case – the Obama Justice Department decided not to prosecute. Instead, the matter was quietly disposed of by a $375,000 fine by the Federal Election Commission

    NJ Doesn’t Say How It Will Enforce Magazine Confiscation After Court Upholds Law
    New Jersey law enforcement officials refused to say on Thursday how they planned to go about enforcing the state’s ban on the possession of any magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which goes into effect on Monday.

    Neither the state police nor the attorney general’s office elaborated on how they plan to enforce the law. Nor did they provide any guidance for those currently in possession of the magazines.

    Leland Moore, a public information officer for the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, refused to answer any questions on how the state planned to deal with gun owners who did not comply with the new law. He would not say if the attorney general has any guidance at all for those who currently own the magazines being targeted, which gun-rights activists have estimated to be up to a million New Jersey residents, or provide any insight about how the state will deal with those who don’t turn in, modify, or destroy their magazines.

    “We have no comment,” Moore said to multiple inquiries
