    Men used to play women parts during Rome and early Shakespearean plays, so women did not work much as actresses. Today, women will lose their jobs against transies who demand to play women roles in Hollyweird films and Broadway plays, along with female athletes. Hollywood who screams about injustices has "Blackwashed" jobs away from White actors and actresses due to difficulty in creating new superheroes, gods, or interesting new characters in a movie. They seriously lack the creativity and only jab at culture but push the cult of violence and perversion.

    Call A Deer A Horse—Call Lia Thomas A Woman—Call Ketanji Jackson A Judge. Political Power In Action!


    Call A Deer A Horse—Call Lia Thomas A Woman—Call Ketanji Jackson A Judge. Political Power In Action!




    Earlier: A Talk Radio Listener Comments On Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Qualifications—And Unknown LSAT Scores The Senate Judiciary Committee, as I’m sure you know, has been holding confirmation hearings for
    Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the president’s nominee to replace retiring justice Stephen Breyer in October.
    I can’t say I’ve followed the hearings closely…or at all, really. My longstanding opinion, which I enlarged on here a few weeks ago, is that Supreme Court justices are not chosen for their wisdom or learning; they are chosen for political acceptability. That favors mediocrities, and mediocrities is mostly what we get. Our political Establishment does not want anyone with an interesting mind on the court. They made that most vividly plain in the caseof Robert Bork.



    So these Judiciary Committee hearings usually consist of mediocrities interrogating a mediocrity, with the result a foregone conclusion anyway—Republican senates voting to confirm Republican nominees, Democrats Democrats. Zzzzzzz.



    From scattered things I’d read about Judge Jackson I figured her hearing would not be one of the exceptions, so I watched reruns of Two Broke Girls instead.



    However, browsing my breakfast-time New York Post on Wednesday I did spot the episode where Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee asked Judge Jackson: “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?” [ Judge Jackson declines to define ‘woman,’ says she’s ‘not a biologist’ , by Mark Moore and Samuel Chamberlain, March 23, 2022] After some brief to-ing and fro-ing the judge replied: “Not in this context. I’m not a biologist.” Judge Jackson came in for much mockery over that. My favorite among the mockers—I think everybody’s favorite—was the British lady who fielded the same question by saying: “I’m not a vet, but I know what a dog is.” Tucker Carlson tracked the lady down and gave her a spot on his show Thursday. Her name is Kellie-Jay Keen [Media are afraid to speak against Lia Thomas because of ‘cult-like mentality’: Kellie-Jay Keen, by Hannah Gross, Fox News, March 24, 2022].



    In all fairness to Judge Jackson, there’s more to be said than that. She was asked for a definition, and that is indeed a matter of biology. Kellie-Jay Keen knows what a dog is, but can she actually provide a definition for the word “dog”? One of my schoolmasters told us that the great 18th-century lexicographer Samuel Johnson, in his magisterial dictionary of the English language, defined “dog” as “a familiar quadruped.” That is not actually true. The first folio edition of Johnson’s Dictionary is online, and I checked. The first meaning under “dog” is A domestick animal remarkably various in his species; comprising the mastiff, the spaniel, the bulldog, the greyhound, the hound, the terrier, the cur, with many others. With all proper respect to the learned Dr Johnson, I don’t think that’s even a definition in the strict sense, only a description. I guess I could pursue the matter by looking up Johnson’s definition of the words “definition” and “description” … but I’ve been down enough rabbit holes in my life and don’t feel like going down another. Digging around idly, taking care to avoid rabbit holes, I see that my schoolmaster had only misplaced his source by a few years. A lexicographer of the generation before Johnson, a chap named Nathaniel Bailey, actually did define the word “dog” as “a quadruped well-known.” [On Dictionaries, by Ernest Weekley, The Atlantic, June 1924]



    What was Dr Johnson’s definition for the word “woman”? Here it is: The female of the human race. If Dr Johnson had offered that definition to Senator Blackburn I suspect she’d have asked him to define “female.” Knowing the good doctor’s low level of tolerance for imbeciles with important titles, I’m pretty sure he would have stormed out of the hearing at that point, perhaps having first hurled a copy of his dictionary at Senator Blackburn’s head.



    But what about Judge Jackson? Is she any good, in any respect at all? Considered just as a human being, she seems pretty normal. She’s been married to the same guy for 26 years—a white guy—and they have two kids. In the normality ranking that puts her out ahead of cat ladies Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. And so far as I can gather Judge Jackson’s an ADOS, an American descendant of slaves, not an exotic black like Barack Obama or Kamala Harris.So, points for normality. How about smarts?



    Well, as mentioned in the previous segment, I don’t expect smart nominees to the Supreme Court, although it occasionally happens by accident. Of the current court, Alito and Thomas strike me as decently smart; they got through the sieve somehow. People tell me that Elena Kagan, cats aside, is pretty intelligent; but never having read any of her opinions, I’ll have to take that on faith. That’s two or three out of nine, which is as good as it gets.



    I doubt Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation will raise the court’s mean IQ. Any black of course comes under suspicion as an Affirmative-Action hire; and as VDARE.com’s own correspondent Federale wrote in a blistering piece on March 6th, Judge Jackson’s score on the Law School Admissions Test is a closely-guarded state secret. So like Obama, this is a person who has been wafted up into the Ruling Class on warm thermals of race favoritism. And as well as having benefited herself from race favoritism, there are signs she has been practicing it. Republican members of the Judiciary Committee have been making much of the very lenient sentences she’s approved for defendants in child-pornography cases. Our own James Fulfordwent digging into one of these cases—the most-discussed one, in which Judge Jackson ignored the eight-to-ten-years federal sentencing guidelines and gave the guy three months instead. It turns out the defendant, Wesley Hawkins, was black.







    So what we have here is likely not Judge Jackson failing to take kiddie porn seriously, it’s Judge Jackson showing partiality to black perps. Might Republican Committee members explore that aspect of the issue?…Hello? That’s funny; they’ve all dived under their desks.


    As Federale also points out, for a member of a profession that is supposed to take the utmost care with words, Judge Jackson doesn’t. In a 2019 ruling on an immigration case she used the expression “undocumented non-citizens” in place of “illegal aliens.” That isn’t just clunky and euphemistic, it’s inexcusably wrong. As Federale explains:
    The correct legal term for any person not a citizen or national of the United States is “alien,” not “non-citizen,” as there are persons who are nationals of the United States, but not citizens. Those persons, generally persons born or naturalized in American Samoa and the Swains Islands, are “non-citizens,” but are nationals of the United States, have almost all the rights and privileges of citizens, but not all rights and privileges, yet are not aliens. So you can be a United States national without being a United States citizen. I’ll confess I did not know that.



    You may think that for me, a commentator on an immigration-restrictionist website, not to know that fact is shameful, or disappointing, or perhaps pardonable. Wherever you stand on that, you have to admit that for a U.S. District Court judge not to know it, and to expose her ignorance for the world to see when writing her opinion on an immigration case, is outrageous. Judge Jackson compounded the offense by including, in the very same sentence, the precious little cant phrase “lived experiences.” And yes, of course she is a Cultural Marxist. No surprise there: To a good first approximation, all educated black Americans are Cultural Marxists. So I don’t expect anything good to come from Judge Jackson’s confirmation, which will of course happen. The most I hope for is that we may perhaps get some discussion going about the degree to which we’ve allowed these Kritarchs to take on so much power.



    It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Article III of the Constitution clearly gives Congress the last word on radical legislative changes. If the people want Affirmative Action, or same-sex marriage, or legalized abortion, let them instruct their representatives accordingly, and vote them out if they don’t co-operate. It’s not for judges to impose such things. The problem is that Congress doesn’t want to fulfill its responsibilities. It’s as loth to restrain the Judiciary as it is to restrain the Executive. We are coming up to the 80th anniversary of Congress declaring war on Bulgaria—June 5th 1942. That was the last time Congress declared war on any nation, yet we seem to have fought a great many wars in the interim.



    This issue about defining what is a woman has come to the fore recently because of this competition swimmer guy Lia Thomas pretending to be a girl so he can win medals. Some of the consequences in this case have been positively Soviet. Here’s a headline from Fox News, March 22nd: Women’s advocacy groups silent on transgender swimmer Lia Thomas’ domination at NCAA championships, by Timothy H.J. Nerozzi. Why are they silent?



    Why do you think? They’re scared. They know that anyone who speaks up will suffer consequences. Other swimmers will of course lose their place on competition teams; but non-swimmers too will meet the wrath of the Cultural Marxist Establishment. You could lose your Twitter account, your job, even your bank account. You could be branded for all time on the social-media databases as a hateful hater filled with hate.


    Call A Deer A Horse


    As somewhat of a connoisseur in the matter of Chinese idioms and allusions, I know exactly where I am here. If you know anything at all about ancient Chinese history you know about Qín Shihuángdě, who founded a dynasty in 221 B.C. and called himself First Emperor—that’s what “Shihuángdě” means. This Emperor of course had a staff of senior officials to run the Empire; and these senior officials of course schemed among themselves for advantage. The most ambitious of these schemers was a fellow—well, a eunuch—named Zhŕo Gao. When the Emperor died, Zhŕo Gao saw the chance to seize supreme power for himself. The succession should have gone to the Emperor’s oldest son, whom the Emperor himself had favored; but there was bad blood between Zhŕo Gao and this oldest son, so Zhŕo Gao got rid of him and enthroned the Emperor’s second son as Second Emperor.



    Second Emperor was none too bright, and that suited Zhŕo Gao fine. Maneuvering behind the scenes, he gathered up more and more power to himself, with Second Emperor as a mere figurehead, a puppet Emperor. Zhŕo Gao’s ultimate ambition was to put himself on the Imperial throne, but he knew that some of the senior officials would oppose him. He therefore devised a stratagem. Here comes the story. I’ll give it to you straight from the Chinese historian who first recorded it:


    One day Zhŕo Gao presented a deer to Second Emperor. Pointing to the deer, he said: “I offer Your Majesty this horse!”

    Second Emperor laughed and said: “Is the Prime Minister joking with me? This is plainly a deer. How can you say it’s a horse?”

    Zhŕo Gao replied earnestly: “Who would dare play a joke on His Majesty? It’s clear this is a horse. If you don’t believe it, ask the others.”

    Second Emperor thereupon asked the ministers present: “Is this actually a deer, or a horse?”




    Those ministers who were trusted followers or toadies of Zhŕo Gao all said it was a horse. Some others who feared Zhŕo Gao’s power and influence also said it was a horse. Of the few honest ministers, some were silent, but a few insisted that it was in fact a deer. Zhŕo Gao inwardly noted the names of those honest ministers. Later he found a pretext to have them all killed. Records of the Grand Historian: Qin Dynasty, by Sima Qin, about 86 BC, my translation.



    This story is known as “Call a Deer a Horse.” Ever since the story was recorded that phrase, “Call a deer a horse,” been used as an idiom in China, applicable when those in power make you assent to ridiculous falsehoods for fear of the consequences if you don’t. That’s what political power can do, if you have enough of it.



    207 B.C: “Call a deer a horse.”
    2022 A.D.: “Call a man a woman.”
    Does anything ever change?



    John Derbyshire


    This reminds me of an incident back in 2009 when talentless pop star Rihanna was scheduled to perform at the Grammy’s but did a no show. Turned out she had a fight with boyfriend Chris Brown on the way there, and got a black eye from him. The police was called and he was arrested. A flurry of discussions ensued in online forums, including on a tennis forum that I visited which at the time had lots of black commenters due to the Williams sisters’ popularity. Tennis fans are supposed to be largely college educated professionals. Yet on that forum the overwhelming response from black male commenters was that Rihanna was being a “jealous bitch” about Chris Brown’s relationship with other women and deserved the beating, while the overwhelming response from black female commenters, aside from echoing their male counterparts’ response, was one of “We don’t need another black man in jail, they should just go to counselling.” It perfectly explains KBJ’s lenient sentencing on these black criminals, even child predators, “we don’t need another black man in jail, he just needs counselling.” That’s how these people think.
    We may all live in the same country, but we don’t all live in the same world. When the topic of IQ or propensity for violence comes up. Then race immediately becomes a social construct.


    A woman is a human person who more closely resembles her mother rather than her father, and has the potential to be a mother herself.

    Maine Teen Says Struggles With Gender Identity Led to Brutal Stabbing Deaths of Parents, Pet Dog



    Newsweek

    A teenager who said she killed her parents and the family's pet dog because of struggles with her gender identity has been sentenced to 40 years in jail.

    Andrea Balcer was 17 at the time when she "snapped" and fatally stabbed her parents Alice and Antonio Balcer at their home in Winthrop, Maine, on October 31, 2016.

    Balcer alleged she was struggling to deal with her transition from male to female and that her family offered her no support during this time. Balcer also claimed she was molested for years by her mother and physically and mentally abused by her father, accusations the rest of the family fervently denied.

    After launching the frenzied attack, which included stabbing her mother nine times, Balcer then killed the family's chihuahua because it kept on barking, reports Central Maine.

    Balcer, now aged 20, pleaded guilty to two counts of intentional or knowing murder and one count of aggravated cruelty to animals at the Capital Judicial Center in Augusta, Maine, in September. Appearing at the same court, Balcer asked for forgiveness from the rest of her family while being sentenced to 40 years in jail.

    "I made a terrible mistake, one that cost the lives of the two people that gave me life and raised me," Balcer said, reports Central Maine. "I am only here to ask for one thing: That is the forgiveness of my family."

    The defendant's brother, Christopher Balcer, who Balcer spared on the night of the attack, wrote a letter to her in prison to say how he had not forgiven her.

    "I remember the foul things you accused her of, and the looks of horror upon the family's faces as they heard about them. You are an inhuman creature and the fact that you continue to pretend otherwise sickens me," he wrote, reports Central Maine.

    Carl Pierce, Alice Balcer's brother, told the court the 20-year-old's claims she did not receive any support during her transition were an "insult to our family, an insult to our society and an insult to the LGBTQ community" (via CBS News).

    "There was no hatred. There was no malice. There was no ill will. There was resignation to be sure but ultimately there was acceptance," he said.

    "To justify these killings because of sexual identity or gender dysphoria beliefs is truly a cowardly act. Andrea should be ashamed of herself for it."

    Upon sentencing, Justice Daniel Billings said he did not impose the state's maximum 55-year jail term for Balcer because she had no previous criminal conviction and her guilty plea arrived following an agreement her sentence would be capped. Billings said he did not take Balcer's struggles with gender identity into account when sentencing her.

    Pregnant trans man stars in Calvin Klein Mother's Day ad



    What better way to celebrate mom than an ad campaign with a pregnant transgender person selling underwear.

    This year, allegedly in celebration of Mother’s Day, clothing and lingerie brand Calvin Klein launched an ad campaign featuring Roberto Bete, a pregnant trans man, and their partner, Erica Feeha, a transgender woman.

    Calvin Klein’s Instagram post which launched the campaign paid “tribute” to mothers and women everywhere by including a diverse carousel of images portraying the different aspects of motherhood.

    According to Argentinian outlet TN, the couple posed in the brand’s underwear in which Roberto “took advantage of the cameras” to showcase their very pregnant belly.

    The Instagram post includes an unscientific quote from Roberto stating “we can reproduce biologically or from the heart…our role in the world is to love and be loved." Yikes.

    Apparently, the campaign was received well on Instagram, garnering more than 30,000 likes and over 1,800 comments.

    But there has been some justifiable backlash on Twitter:
