The Whiteness Problem of White Wine

In the Black Lives Matter era, everything is too problematically white, including white wine. As every single industry from cereal to dental supplies engages in its own ritual reckoning with a country so systemically racist that every part of its system is hysterically confessing to racism the way teenage girls in Salem confessed to witchcraft, the hangover is hitting wine country. The whining about the whiteness of wine is overflowing at every high end publication. "Too White Wine," moaned the Financial Times. The column by Jancis Robinson, who received an Order of the British Empire for writing about wine, began by tweeting her, "shame at the lack of ethnic diversity in the world of wine." Perhaps Jancis could give her FT column and her OBE to a more deserving minority. Articles warn, The Wine Industry is Overwhelmingly White.” and they frantically urge, "It’s Time to Decolonize Wine" and "It’s Time: Diversity in Wine". Wine is actually very d

California’s Green Energy Dark Age

The Bay Area has the single largest concentration of ‘green’ businesses in the country. It was also the first to feel California’s rolling outages caused by the state’s messy infrastructure of solar panels and wind turbines, faulty and erratic, tied together by ‘virtual power plants’. The real color of ‘green energy’ is black. The Bay Area and surrounding areas are ground zero for the massive graft and grift of ‘green energy’ businesses with companies selling, reselling, manufacturing, consulting, certifying and investing in the bubble crowded in skyscrapers and office parks next to each other. And some of those ‘green’ businesses went dark when a wind farm failed and the power outages rolled out. The real victims of the evening outages in northern California were senior citizens tethered to breathing machines who sat in the dark, watching the remaining battery power and hoping they would survive, families taking the elevator down only to be trapped inside, restaurants, already battere

Globalism is a Western Idea. The Rest of the World Killed It

When globalism’s obituary is finally written, and the mourners file past in their crisp suits and pantsuits, the cause of death will almost certainly read, the People’s Republic of China. China is the most obvious offender. Even before the Wuhan Virus cut off countries from each other, the Communist oligarchy had abused the world economy with massive digital theft, even more massive counterfeiting, product dumping, and every possible form of economic warfare. That’s why any halfway serious adult on the other side supports Trump’s fight against China. Last year, even George Soros, the uber-globalist, called Trump's trade war with China his greatest achievement. This year, during the coronavirus crisis, Soros came out against working with the People’s Republic of China against the virus. The source of Soros' opposition is the fear he expressed at Davos that the PRC's social credit system could "sound the death knell of open societies". By open societies, he meant gl

Cannon Hinnant, George Floyd, and Losing the War on Drugs

The body of a junkie ex-con who had robbed a pregnant woman at gunpoint was placed in a golden coffin on a horse-drawn hearse while a nation whose cities were burning watched. Cannon Hinnant was laid to rest quietly in a small funeral home across the street from a gas station. The mourners, some driving pickup trucks, parked out front and made their way through the puddles to hear his youth pastor eulogize the 5-year-old boy who had been shot in the head. The deaths of George Floyd,a 46-year-old Minneapolis black ex-con strung out on drugs, and Cannon Hinnant, a 5-year-old white boy from a small city in North Carolina, are both symbols. Floyd’s death during a struggle with police led to nationwide race riots, the destruction of statues and stores, hundreds of millions in damage, severe injuries and deaths, and a political inquisition. Hinnant’s death has been ignored outside the local and conservative media. The out-of-context video of Floyd dying of cardiac arrest while high on Fentan

Never Trump Lobbyists and Consultants for Biden

John Kasich took the virtual stage at the Democrat National Convention as the former Republican governor of Ohio. But that’s what he did for a living. Not what he does now. Kasich’s current address isn’t in Ohio. It’s in the swamp. Earlier this year, The Kasich Company, a firm founded by Kasich and Beth Hansen, his chief of staff and the operative who ran his failed presidential campaign, hired a lobbyist to work on coronavirus tax provisions as well as sundry "Federal Regulatory and Legislative Matters". The Kasich Company doesn’t do such prosaic things as list its clients or give any specifics of what it does and where it does it, but the former governor’s company does promise to, “deliver successful strategies to overcome local, state and federal obstacles”. The kind of “obstacles” that have to be overcome with the aid of a lobbyist. Anyone who followed Kasich’s career, his cynical effort to jump on the Tea Party bandwagon, followed by an even more cynical tilt leftward,

What Do Joe Biden and Kamala Harris Have in Common? Sexual Harassment

“The Democratic Party has become an enabler to sexual predators," Tara Reade, Biden's former Senate staffer, who accused him of sexual assault, recently told an interviewer. In May, Reade revealed that she tried to get Kamala Harris to listen. "Kamala Harris is my representative, so I tried to reach out to her in particular for help, like I wanted to get a safe place to tell what happened. And I didn't get a response. So I kept, again, trying to get it out there," she said. A senior adviser to the Kamala Harris campaign claimed that never happened. Last year, Kamala Harris had expressed support for Democrat female activists who had complained about Biden touching them inappropriately. Many of the complaints were not new and Biden had not yet entered the campaign. "I believe them and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it," Harris said, and implied that Biden might want to consider the consequences of running. B

You Can Write Anything on the Street, as Long as it’s 'Black Lives Matter'

What can you write on the sidewalk? In Washington D.C., two activists with Students for Life were arrested for chalking, "Black Pre-Born Lives Matter” outside a Planned Parenthood abortion facility. After months in which "Black Lives Matter" along with the names of assorted criminals has been ritually chalked, painted, and splattered on sidewalks and streets across America, the concept of vandalism had been rediscovered for conservatives who defend the black lives yet unborn. The activists were charged with defacing public or private property for using chalk, that is easily removable, in a city whose mayor had made a point of painting Black Lives Matter on the street leading to the White House in support of the attacks on the nation’s capital by BLM rioters. And when BLM activists added “Defund the Police” to Bowser’s original racial supremacist slogan, they were not arrested and no law enforcement personnel dared to interfere. The case of the arrested pro-life activists

Why Did Biden Pick Kamala? Follow the Money

How much did it cost to buy Biden's VP Spot? About $3.5 million. That's how much Senator Kamala Harris' virtual fundraiser for Biden brought in back in June. That not only beat Hillary’s total, but swamped every other Democrat fundraiser for Biden, except the Obama one, which brought in over $6 million for his old incontinent flunky, and Warren, who brought in more money in total, but had the misfortune of being a white woman. The virtual fundraisers were the real beauty contest for the money hungry Bidens. And Kamala Harris won them in a swimsuit of money long before the official announcement was even made. Susan Rice could hardly compete with a paltry $24,000 donation to Biden. "She’s been a fighter and a principled leader and I know because I’ve seen her up close, and I’ve seen her in the trenches," Biden gushed about the California politician. The trenches that Biden had in mind weren’t in the fields of France, but at high-end fundraisers. Another one of Kamal

1619 Project Movie Coming From Studio Building Theme Parks in Slave Labor Countries

“The 1619 Project was a great awakening and a true history that you probably never learned in school,” Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer falsely claimed, announcing the partnership between the Canadian movie studio, Oprah Winfrey, and the New York Times. The press release promised that the partnership with the sleazy Canadian studio responsible for Saw, the Hunger Games, and Twilight, will usher in "an expansive portfolio of feature films" and "television series" based on the racist revisionist history promulgated by the New York Times. There is a reason that the 1619 Project isn't taught in schools. It isn't true and actual historians have taken apart its false claims that America was built on slavery. Lionsgate though is another story. Last year, Lionsgate Entertainment World opened on Hengqin Island, in the People's Republic of China. The theme park brought attractions based on Twilight and The Hunger Games to a country whose brutal Communist regime had us

Austin Voted to Defund the Police, its Murder Rate Rose 67%

The Austin City Council voted unanimously to defund the police. "We don't need somebody who's a sworn officer and a gun in order to be able to accomplish what the community needs done," Mayor Steve Adler falsely claimed. Austin's proposed budget targeted millions in cuts. These included 100 vacant police positions, delaying the next cadet class, delaying the replacement of duty weapons, and there were proposals by some Democrats council members to shut down the police academy, cut the bomb squad budget, and even demolish the city’s downtown police headquarters. The proposed budget also includes a 3.5% tax increase. Politicians limited the ability of police officers to use force against criminals and barred them from using pepper spray and tear gas against the violent mobs of Black Lives Matter rioters. Now Austin is number one with a bullet after its homicide rate increase passed every major city. Overtaking more violent cities like Chicago, left behind at numb
