Only now do we find out.

That was quite the mistake, and it certainly didn’t help the sexual assault situation that followed.

Continuing to do all the things he wouldn’t do when he was worried about consequences.

He may have an unfounded opinion of Trump, but at least he understands a couple of things that most of the rest of the left seems to miss: political correctness is killing their side of the debate and keeping them in a bubble, and that a lot of their positions for the developing world are entirely arrogant because they’re ignoring the fundamental survival that those citizens need to meet.

That’s too bad. Now ask her how she feels about bakers having to make cakes for homosexual weddings.

Climateers’ Biggest Lies

Like so much of the rest of the left, they have to misrepresent their opponents’ positions so that they can label and denounce them.

Lunacy.

An interesting, but long, article.

Simultaneously, the church was generally outside of the state, and so rulers could not use religion to seize property, and Christianity emphasized that envy was a deadly sin, further preventing a lot of negative policies. All of this combined for strong property rights and laissez faire economics.

They think he will do to them what they were intending to do to the rest of us.

They’ve spent the last decade weaponizing the government for political crusades against their enemies, and now they’re scared of such a government.

This should be interesting.

Nice.
