Sometimes you just gotta laugh

Liberal legal scholar Jonathan Turley observed that an NBC News national security contributor, Frank Figluizzi,

“voiced a bizarre criticism of President Donald Trump after Trump ordered flags to be flown at half mast because of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Figluizzi said that the date, August 8th, meant that the shorthand date of 8/8 could be viewed as a reference to 88 which could be a reference to HH (the eighth letter in the alphabet) which could be viewed as a salute to “Heil Hitler.”

Figluizzi went on to say that this was an example of the “ignorance of the adversary… The numbers 88 are very significant in the neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement.” Really.

This reference is so obvious and so hurtful that I had never heard of it. Maybe it’s like the Masons’ double secret handshake and code words. If I misuse one of them, will I be assaulted with a trowel? We could go on about “reader response theory” and “preferred pronouns,” but that would divert us from a more serious (?!?!) consideration of the actual number.

Our first stop has to be the AntiDefamation League. If anyone would know about Nazi symbolism and its hateful impact, this Jewish organization would know. And certainly, since the President’s daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren are Jewish, there’s no way they would let such an insult slip by.

“88 is a white supremacist numerical code for “Heil Hitler.” H is the eighth letter of the alphabet, so 88 = HH = Heil Hitler. One of the most common white supremacist symbols, 88 is used throughout the entire white supremacist movement, not just neo-Nazis.”

OMG! A few hundred nutjobs have a specific symbol they use in private conversations and publications that no one else reads. It’s obvious that everyone should be mind readers and avoid using those numbers. But what about a Jewish male child born on August 1? He must be circumcised “on the eighth day” (Lev 12:3). But a bris is a celebration of the child’s life and his covenant relationship with Yahweh. Must the Jews change Torah because Yahweh’s preferred day might be misconstrued? Let us consider what else the ADL says.

“It should be noted that 88 can be found in non-extremist contexts. The number is used by ham radio operators to mean “hugs” or “hugs and kisses.” Also, a number of NASCAR drivers, including several very well-known ones, have used the number 88, resulting in various automobile stickers and other forms of merchandise sporting that number.”

To which we might add that hockey Hall of Famer Eric Lindros wore number 88. And nine – count-em – nine pro football Hall of Famers also wore the number, with exactly one white player in the mix. Seven were black and one Hispanic. So the NFL and NHL are racist as well. Hmmm…

The basic idea behind the “88” usage Figluizzi complained about is that letters stand for numbers. This ancient gematria was used as late as the Roman Empire before Roman numerals were invented. Arab mathematicians moved away from it by inventing the numerals we use today. But that hasn’t stopped moderns from toying with it, fueled by speculation about the “number of the beast” in Revelation 13:18.

“666” has been applied to a vast number of personages. Early on, Roman Emperor Nero was called the “Beast” because a variant spelling of his name added to 666. Islam’s prophet Mohammed got tagged because of an obscure multinational transformation of his name. “Ronald Wilson Reagan” was said to be the Beast since each of his three names have six letters. As a teacher of biblical interpretation, I have to condemn all of these as lacking any foundation whatever. And that brings me to the conclusion of this rant.

There is no rational basis for making the claim that Figluizzi makes. Donald Trump could be sending “hugs and kisses” to the survivors and families of the victims. Of course, that assumes that he is familiar with Ham Radio lingo, which developed in the Morse Code environment (something else I have been part of). “88” was much shorter to send than “hugs and kisses.”

As Jonathan Turley notes, Figluizzi’s claim is “perfectly insane.” And since Turley is an accomplished attorney, he may be using the term in its legal sense: incapable of distinguishing right from wrong. Of course, that seems to be quite common on the Left.

Now they want you to accept literal vampirism, too

Now they want you to accept literal vampirism too

As article from Katherine Timpf in National Review from 2015 is getting new life as Truthstream Media called it up and highlighted the utter ridiculousness of claims made by “real vampires.” And by “real,” we’re talking about those with a mental disorder that makes them believe they need some form of sustenance to survive that falls outside of the standard food realm. Some drink blood. Some drink “psychic energy.” All of them have a detachment from reality.

As we move into the post-truth society envisioned by radical progressives, truth is only a function of one’s feelings. We are not allowed to question the validity of anyone’s personal claims. If they say they’re a girl even if they were born a boy, then the post-truth society demands we call them girls. If they believe they need to drink human blood to survive even if biology says otherwise, then by golly pour them a pint or two.

If you still have doubts we’ve been heading towards a post-truth society for a long time, watch this video. Kat Timpf’s NRO article and Truthstream Media’s video should put all your doubts to rest with no hope of coming back from the dead.

Alleged Philadelphia shooter Maurice Hill attended radical Wahhabi Islam mosque: report

Alleged Philadelphia shooter Maurice Hill attended radical Wahhabi Islam mosque report

Wahhabism, the anti-American fundamentalist Islamic sect that drives the religious culture in Saudi Arabia, has as one of its stated goals to spread their beliefs around the world through any means necessary. Mosques promoting their radical ideology have been popping up across America over the last few years, including in Philadelphia. Alleged cop-shooter Maurice Hill attended one of them.

According to Clarion Project:

The mosque, called Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar, is known for preaching the Islamist ideology promoted by Saudi Arabia referred to as “Wahhabism.”

Clarion Intelligence Network has been aware through its sources that the area where the shootings took place is known for trafficking in guns, drugs and counterfeit items. This criminal market has a strong Islamist element that includes extremist gangs.

Hill’s older sister said he “occasionally attended” an unnamed mosque, confirming initial reports from our sources that Hill is a Muslim. The sources do not yet have first-hand evidence of the shooter being personally involved in Islamist extremism.

Clarion Intel’s sources report that Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar is a Salafi mosque which follows the theocratic teachings of Saudi Arabia’s top Wahhabist scholars.

At this point, there is no indication that Hill’s shooting of police officers was motivated by Islamism or anything other than a desire to resist arrest.

Today, a march was scheduled to “Free Maurice Hill” by Black Community Control of Police, a group adamantly opposed to law enforcement. There are no indications the group is aligned with Masjid Ahlil Hadeeth Wal Athar, but it is a common practice among radical Islamic groups to disguise their associations and operate apparently independent from one another.

The details surrounding the gunfight seem to indicate it was not prompted by Wahhabism as Hill was apparently approached as a result of a separate warrant enforced against a neighbor. But the clear disregard for police authority and the willingness to attempt to murder multiple law enforcement officers indicates an ideology that is prepared to kill and die. Was this ideology sparked at the radical mosque Hill attended?

As expected, the appetite of legacy media to cover Maurice Hill died down quickly despite the rampant calls for gun control. His story has too many things that go against the progressive media’s narrative.

Any connections to Islam in situations like these are automatically dismissed as Islamophobia. But it’s highly unlikely Maurice Hill’s alleged actions were completely disparate from the radical teachings of the mosque he attended.

Conservatives, don’t let #EpsteinSuicide become our #MuellerReport

Conservatives dont let EpsteinSuicide become our MuellerReport

Jeffrey Epstein probably didn’t commit suicide. The circumstances behind his death are too bizarre, from sleeping guards and malfunctioning cameras to broken neck bones and odd bed sheet strangulation techniques. But we’re never going to know the truth whether he killed himself or not. This is above all of our paygrades and therefore pondering and conspiracy theorizing about it can be a distraction at best, a backfiring ploy at worst.

It’s interesting, especially considering all of the powerful men within his circle who could be implicated. But the system won’t allow them to be implicated in a meaningful way. The entire Jeffrey Epstein episode can yield no fruit and is, in fact, a consciousness trap that can draw us away from much more important issues. As for getting justice for the victims, again, that’s also above our paygrades. If there’s any justice, it won’t come as a result of us Tweeting out conspiracy theories or ranting about the Clinton Kill List.

This has been on my mind for a couple of days, but a Twitter thread I just read brought it home.

There’s no need for conservatives to dwell on Jeffrey Epstein. If you think the investigation will yield fruit to use against Democrats, you’re almost certainly mistaken. Let’s not get caught in the same unhinged hopes the Democrats had for Mueller.
