We will know we have reached the end game — the part where the Second Amendment needs to come into play — when liberals stop gradually eroding the Constitution and progress to tearing it to shreds so as to replace it with a new document that will explicitly reject individual liberty and affirm their malign ideology of race-based collectivist tyranny. According to some, that time is at hand
The Census Bureau reports that population growth has shifted to the South and the result is that the 11 states that make up the Northeast are being bled dry of representation in Washington.
Critics blame rising taxes in states such as Massachusetts and Connecticut for limiting population growth in the Northeast to just 15 percent from 1983 to 2013, while the rest of the nation grew more than 41 percent.
The biggest impact comes in the loss of congressional representation.
This result is one of the most dramatic demographic shifts in American history. This migration is shifting the power center of America right before our very eyes. The movement isn’t random or even about weather or resources. Economic freedom is the magnet and states ignore this force at their own peril
As the United States steps up its battle against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), defense leaders on Capitol Hill are raising concerns about a looming shortage in the Tomahawk missile supply, a key offensive weapon that the Navy has deployed against militant strongholds in Syria and elsewhere.
The U.S. Navy’s current reliance on the Tomahawk, known as “the world’s most advanced cruise missile,” comes just months after the Obama administration attempted to significantly cut funding for the weapon and then eliminate it completely it in 2016, a move that drew heavy criticism from defense experts and lawmakers.
“Core al-Qaeda,” you are to understand, is different from “Jabhat al-Nusra,” which in turn is distinct from “al-Qaeda in Iraq” (formerly “al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia,” now the “Islamic State” al-Qaeda spin-off that is, itself, formerly “al-Qaeda in Iraq and al-Sham” or “al-Qaeda in Iraq and the Levant”). That al-Qaeda, don’t you know, is a different outfit from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula . . . which, of course, should never be mistaken for “al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb,” “Boko Haram,” “Ansar al-Sharia,” or the latest entry, “al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent.”
Coming soon, “al-Qaeda on Hollywood and Vine.”
For a product of the radical Left like Obama, terrorism is a regrettable but understandable consequence of American arrogance. That it happens to involve Muslims is just the coincidental fallout of Western imperialism in the Middle East, not the doctrinal command of a belief system that perceives itself as engaged in an inter-civilizational conflict. For the Left, America has to be the culprit. Despite its inbred pathologies, which we had no role in cultivating, Islam must be the victim, not the cause. As you’ll hear from Obama’s Islamist allies, who often double as Democratic activists, the problem is “Islamophobia,” not Muslim terrorism.
As inevitably happens when nonserious people are put in charge of National Security, things have gone awry in the world and Americans have had enough of the hopelessly naive way the Democrats viewed the world in 2008. The second most important thing Democrats believe in is that they should remain in office, so predictably, they have decided to hope the American people will forget everything they have said over the past six or eight years
Sooner or later, Americans are going to get sick of being terrorized and murdered by Muslims. When they do, they will also get sick of the liberals who have bent over backwards to defend and enable Western Civilization’s ancient enemy.
The ranking was “mostly affected” by salaries and their increase “over the last decade” – which, as NC education guru Terry Stoops notes means SEVEN of the TEN years of the report, the NC state legislature (known here as the General Assembly) was controlled by … Democrats, including then-state Senator Kay Hagan
FULL WEIGHT, according to the Hagan campaign – and their faithful supporters on social media, who have also been dutifully passing along links to articles about the report and doing just as Hagan did, blame Tillis reflexively rather than carefully read and analyze the articles and report linked. But since we’re supposed to take this report as the “gospel truth according to Kay and Co,”, we’ll run with the stats in it – just for the sake of argument. You know, argue on their terms.
The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS.
… after six years of Holder hugging Al Sharpton, stoking racial division in places like Florida and Ferguson, after suing police and fire departments to impose racial hiring requirements, after refusing to enforce election laws that protect white victims or require voter rolls to be cleaned, after launching harassing litigation against peaceful pro-life protesters, after incident after incident of dishonesty and contempt before Congress — after all this, it was clear to anyone with any intellectual honesty that this man had a vision of the law at odds with the nation’s traditions.
… Those of you clamoring for “indictments” or “prosecution” of the man can give up. It isn’t going to happen. Nothing is going to happen to him, except that he will move on to a job that even most “1 percenters” wouldn’t recognize.
Holder’s tenure represents the beginnings of a post-Constitutional era, where the chief law enforcement officer of the United States serves to dismantle legal traditions. Holder is the first attorney general to whom law seemed to be an option, a suggestion on the way to a progressive future. Most folks, and most lawyers, who didn’t devote daily attention to him might not have noticed the ground shifting during his tenure. But shift it did, and very deliberately.
No Israeli Prime Minister could allow such an attack to go unanswered. And so Netanyahu began his remarks by daring President Obama to distinguish between his battle against ISIS and Israel’s battle with Hamas.
There are very few Believers in “climate change”, ie, the notion that every change in the weather and earth is caused mostly/solely by Mankind’s release of greenhouse gases, primarily CO2 (what they unscientifically call “carbon pollution”) from fossil fuels, who will admit that one of their primary goals is to change the economies of countries and the world into a far, far left Progressive/Socialist one. Naomi Klein is one of them. She’s been running around talking about her book, saying exactly that
… she lawfully owned the firearm and would have been lawfully able to carry it in her state of residence. Once in New Jersey, the firearm apparently never left her vehicle. She was otherwise law-abiding, and police only discovered the gun because of a routine traffic stop. Ms. Allen volunteered the presence of the firearm even before being asked about it, and police immediately took it into custody. Finally, Ms. Allen was honestly unaware that her Pennsylvania concealed carry permit did not apply in New Jersey
The NRA, politicians, cops and lawyers in two states are arguing over lawfullness.
What is the highest law in America? Is it the Constitution?
Does the Constitution contain the words “… the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms shall not be infringed”? Why, yes it does.
Why, then, all the argument over the severity of punishment of a citizen of the United States who did that which shall not be infringed?
The recent attack on a British soldier by assassins wielding meat cleavers while bystanders looked on raises the question: “Why didn’t anyone try to help the victim?”
Because British citizens are prohibited from carrying objects that could be used as “offensive weapons.”
Some would assume that cowardice and apathy took place in Englandistan after British citizens’ guns were taken from them. Some would be wrong … cowardice and apathy are why they submitted to disarmament.
So it should be no surprise that Brits can stand and watch one of their military being hacked to death, in the middle of the street, by muslims with meat cleavers – just as it should be no surprise when an American citizen picks up a rifle and administers lead poisoning to a muslim in the act of beheading women.
It is no coincidence that the same soul-rotting cowardice and apathy that causes people to surrender their primary means of self defense – also causes people to tolerate murderous butchery as an expression of the butcher’s religion.
The fact that would-be murderous butchers are tolerated here, coddled and granted extra ‘rights’ and welfare is an indication of how far down the soul-rot, apathetic coward path we have already traveled.
What you’re seeing at outlets like CNN and the Associated Press is bland coverage about a man beheading a woman, without much in the way of context as to why a man would do such a thing… as if “beheading” wasn’t enough of a giveaway to any but the lowest of low-information voters. Somehow I think we’d be getting a lot more “context,” probably right in the headlines, if Alton Nolen had been a member of the Tea Party.
… a woman then complained to the driver that their behavior was clearly a racist reference to the fact that Muslims cannot eat pork.
“She was saying, ‘You’re irresponsible parents teaching your child to be racist. You shouldn’t be singing that to your daughter, it’s a song about pigs and it’s racist,’”
There is probably more to this story than what’s reported in this particular article, but we’ll probably never know.
So let’s assume that the couple was indeed singing the pig song just to piss off the muslim nearby. (But first, I have to point out that it was not necessary, as the muslim was already pissed by just having to be in the presence of filthy bacon-breath kufar and unable to cut their heads off. ) … but anyway, you have to wonder about the culture of a society that would force parents and their baby to walk home because they sung a song about a pig that wounded the sensitivities of a follower of a religion that advocates mandates horrific human butchery.
I wonder about the bus driver that forced the couple off. Is he an ever-insulted muslim too? Or is he so pitifully brain-washed in political correctness that he can’t tolerate the intolerance of a pig-song singers in the presence of she-who-shall-not-be-insulted-because-she-wears-a-tent? Or is he just a coward?
I also have to wonder which race was the target of the song’s racist intent? Since islam is political cult and not a race, the insulted muslim could have been white, black, brown … Asian, Arab, Persian … or anything in between. What if the couple were of the same actual race as the insulted muslim? Would the coward bus driver have still gave them boot for being racist?
The old, out-dated, pre-caliphate definition:
noun – a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
adjective – having or showing the belief that a particular race is superior to another
Race, if you ask a muslim, is defined by islam – by the koran – by mohammed as muslim and non-muslim. If you are not muslim you cannot say nor do anything regarding a muslim without insulting the muslim and thereby committing racism. On the other hand, you cannot remain silent or do nothing regarding a muslim without insulting the muslim and thereby committing racism. In other words, you’re either a muslim or a racist.
That means the muslim is obligated to punish you – for not being muslim. Period.
The muslim race is compelled to either convert or kill all non-muslims. Gee, that sounds a little …. racist.
Western elites, who fancy themselves more intelligent and more enlightened than the wise men and prophets of every religion, and who base their entire right to rule on that intelligence and enlightenment, are not in the habit of admitting that they have been played for fools.
The Arab Springers who predicted that the Muslim uprisings would bring a new age of secularism, freedom and an end to the violence between Islam and the West; are busy writing up new checks.
…. Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt; it also laps at the shores of Tel Aviv, flows out to the English coast and floods cities across Europe.
Some of the best minds in two hemispheres are engaged in seeking a solution to this paradox, which isn’t a paradox at all but rather a straight-line projection.
If Abdul is beheading people when all he has to work with is a sword then, if you give him a gun, he will start shooting them instead. If he’s blowing up buses when he only has a terrorist group, he will blow up countries when he has a country.
Muslims assume that Americans are conspiring to destroy them through a byzantine series of plots and conspiracies, because that is what they would do in our place… and that is what they are trying to do.
… armed forces are undergoing a reduction in force, thousands of junior enlisted men and women are being denied the opportunity to re-enlist while a few thousand junior and mid-grade officers and non-commissioned officers are being involuntarily separated or retired. Many of those are currently serving in combat
… we are forcing out people who are already trained and, in a large number of cases have combat experience. In return we are bringing in people who are illegal aliens and who owe no formal allegiance to the United States and who require training. There is no possible reason for this that makes sense from either an operational or personnel management standpoint. [UPDATE] In fact, all four services had met their enlistment goals for Fiscal Year 2014 (which ends September 30) by May 31. This is simply a sop Obama is throwing to his base and the race-based constituencies the Democrat party is beholden to and it is done so at the expense of American men and women who have, in many cases, put their lives on the line for this nation.
… you weren’t supposed to know about Obama’s human wave assault this year. The photos of children stacked up like cargo in warehouses were leaked, provoking a crisis that sent immigration rocketing from an issue that didn’t crack the Top 10 lists of voters to their Number One concern. You also weren’t supposed to know about the buses and planes distributing thousands of illegal aliens to communities across the country, making it effectively impossible to deport them.
The war on women has a proven record of success — in mobilizing Democratic women and trumping what would otherwise seem much more important issues — and it is so simple that any idiot can run on it.
The assumption is that women are strong and independent — just don’t say the wrong word around them, or they will get the vapors.
The Democrats deserve credit for managing to portray a position supported by no one serious in public life — that women should be denied birth control — as the default position of the Republican party.
Everybody has a theory about what the future could look like, but if we look at the actual record — the record of history — capitalism wins, hands down, over socialism and other state-run economic models when it comes to environmental measures. There is no contest. And at the moment, many of the most interesting ideas about environmental protection are coming from explicitly free-market thinkers. It wasn’t socialism that saved the white rhino.
In reviewing President Obama’s address to the United Nations, I mentioned his approving quotation of Sheikh Abdallah bin Bayyah, who said, “We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.” Unfortunately, he belongs to a group that is also noted for declaring war upon American soldiers, signing onto a fatwa whose outcome was corpses upon corpses.
You can imagine how many moonbats swooned over that incoherent sentence: “We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.”
How about “declare peace on war to stop the war on peace” ? eh? It makes just as much and just as little sense.
Or this: Peace happens when you’ve demonstrated your desire for peace in conjunction with demonstration of your ability and willingness to utterly destroy anybody that screws with you and your peace.
Al-Ghannouchi was a founding trustee and board member of a group that signed onto a notorious 2004 fatwa endorsing the murder of U.S. troops in Iraq and has personally urged the Muslim world to “burn and destroy” U.S. interests across the globe.
… The sheik’s violent rhetoric, radical leanings, and endorsement of Hamas led him to be banned from entering the United States for a time.
… “In 1991 its operatives attacked the headquarters of Ben Ali’s party, killing one person and throwing acid in the faces of several others, and that same year Ghannouchi called for attacks on U.S interests in the Middle East in response to America’s invasion of Iraq in the Gulf War.”
While “the Arab world is casting off double-talking ‘moderate Islamists’ like Rachid Ghannouchi, the foreign policy think tanks in Washington, D.C., and Yale Law School shouldn’t be trying to fool the rest of us,”
For nearly three months this summer, the Obama administration carefully avoided answering questions about what happened to tens of thousands of immigrant families caught illegally crossing the Mexican border and released into the United States with instructions to report back to immigration authorities.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and others said they faced deportation. But it turns out that tens of thousands of those immigrants did not follow the government’s instructions to meet with federal immigration agents within 15 days. Instead, they have vanished into the interior of the U.S.!
Jeh Johnson, head of the government agency responsible for the security of our homeland, had thousands of foreign invaders of the homeland in his hands and let them go with instructions to come back and fill out forms when they had time. They all faded into the shadows.
But he’s got a plan to fix that ….
I am very focused on knowing as much as we can about individuals who are undocumented in this country,” Johnson said. “And I believe that if an earned pathway to citizenship were to become law, that would encourage people to come forward and submit to a background check so they can get on the books.
Lemme Summit Furya
That is industrial-strength stupid. You have to wonder how someone that stupid can even walk.
“Through strong arming reporters, practically ignoring high level wrongdoing, blocking his own agency Inspector General’s access to information, and overseeing a Department that attempted to stonewall Congressional oversight with denials of what is now established fact, Attorney General Holder abused his office and failed to uphold the values of our Constitution,”
When you know deep down you’re a dishonest person, when you have had to eat the bitter pill of your own corruption who knows how many times … you have to invent a narrative for yourself to justify your activities. So over may years Holder developed what I have called elsewhere a “nostalgia for racism.” No matter that racism was diminishing in our culture, he had to keep racism alive, believe it was alive. If racism were going away, he would no longer have a raison d’être, an excuse for his biased behavior, an excuse, as it turned out, to go beyond the law, act unilaterally and punish political enemies.
Toward this end, in a sense, Holder encouraged racism, as did Obama. They are both slightly more polished versions of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Like Jackson and Sharpton, they act as if they care about the black man or woman in the street, but in actuality they just care about themselves. The racial posturing is a form of moral narcissism that works to preserve racism, not to defeat it.
… By the way, apropos Marc Rich, isn’t it ironic one of Holder’s last causes as AG was his attempt to get Dinesh D’Souza put away in prison for years for an illegal political donation of a measly thirty grand?
It Smells Like Satire
We live in a time when reality and satire have become indistinguishable. Practically every headline available today would have been rejected as satire about twenty years ago and no matter how stupid the story you can no longer dismiss it as a hoax or satire based simply on the magnitude of the stupidity.
… what Kerry meant to say is that getting anyone smarter than a box of rocks to believe in global warming is the biggest challenge they face. Changing the name of the phony crisis to “climate change” in tacit admission that it isn’t getting any warmer is not likely to help.
There might be a still bigger challenge on the way for Hanoi John Kerry et al.: dealing with the wrath of the public when people move beyond figuring out that they have been lied to and begin to understand the purpose of those lies — namely, to crush our freedoms, confiscate our wealth, undermine American sovereignty, and destroy our way of life.
I know it isn’t easy to take this twerp seriously, but he is part of political movement that has as its explicit goals the control of all productive human activity and the drastic reduction of our standard of living, so maybe we should try.
As with the wannabe global hegemons who attempt to inflict tyranny through the UN, DiCaprio’s control freak fever dreams are highly ambitious.
So let me ask: when’s the last time you spent money on a DiCaprio movie?
Lemme rephrase that: when’s the last time you donated to DiCaprio’s socialist movement?
While it seems like good news at first, the proposed or tentative or suggested resignation of Eric Holder makes me cringe. I cringe so hard my back hurts, when I try to imagine who – or what – King (THHO)Obama will nominate for replacement. I’m tempted to make jokes about who the next AG will be, but I know that no matter how ridiculous or stupid I get with it, (THHO)Obama will outdo me.
Ah, wot da heck. Black casino-grade race card dealer? Capable of firing race cards at a frequency best described as a cyclic rate. But no shuffling experience … all the cards are the same. Wait, I just described the incumbent. Communist? One would think that, given the number of commies in the (THHO)Obama administration, they would have exhausted supply. One would be wrong. Muslim? Oh, very possible. Since there are so many moderate muslims that only secretly wish death on infidels and so very few blood soaked head choppers with law degrees available, well, the chances of a bearded, ragtop AG is not out of the question. Especially, if he wears a bowtie and hornrims. Illegal Alien? Why not? A job’s a job, and I don’t think there’s a law that says he has to speak english. There might be something about citizenship, but that’s no biggie. That can be fixed with a quick stroke of the First Pen. GlobalCluster Greenie? Never mind, I already covered that above, with Communist. Homer Sekshul? Nah, probly not. All available leftist homers are already camped out under the Resolute Footstool. FemiNazi? If a [not visually verifiable] woman lawyer can be found that has filed suit against Adam of Eden, decked in jewelry made of aborted baby bones, wears a barbed dildo in an open-carry holster … it would not be passed over in favor of a human being.
The possibilities are endless and no postulation is too ridiculous to be ruled out. Except! this one:
An American who has read, understands and agrees with the Constitution and who will “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that … will bear true faith and allegiance to the same”.
Colorado Springs’ largest school district, with nine middle schools and four high schools, will allow its security staff to carry firearms beginning later this year.
… “If you look around the nation at school shootings, they’re over fairly quickly once the first armed officer arrives,”
“So having the ability to have someone armed on campus makes it a lot safer for the school.”
The D.C. Council voted Tuesday to grant residents and visitors the ability to carry concealed firearms in public, but the bill would establish a regulatory structure that could make it difficult for gun owners to secure a permit.
So I amend my statement above … they still aren’t upholding the Constitution. The Right that shall not be infringed does not require permission from any government – federal, state or municipality.
Of course, DC is not unique in their failure to understand that being required to ‘apply for permit’ is the same thing as asking for permission.
It should never have reached this stage. Only an authoritarian society would treat its people like helpless victims, with the government masquerading as some kind of guardian angel. Free societies have a strong emphasis on individual self-reliance, including responsibility for personal safety.
It is also the height of hypocrisy for anti-violence groups to fail to promote the availability of practical ways in which potential victims can protect themselves against predators.
The Muslim fighters rushing to join ISIS hoping to be its “kings of the earth” and “knights of war” and to force the east and west to submit to it are at war with the United States. They have given their allegiance to a foreign power that promises them that they will rule over Americans.
It’s useless to bomb ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria, if we let them march through our airports.
By now everyone with an IQ above plant life understands that the root cause of the violence we see literally everywhere there are Muslims is Islam, not “alienation and disaffection.” Yet the nauseating PC rhetoric goes on and on.
The science is settled, as the climate change supporters like to say. Only this time, science confirms the safety of hydraulic fracturing. According to a new study published by the National Academy of Sciences, fracking is safe. End of discussion.
How compassionate is it to ask a country of hungry, unemployed people, many of whom live amongst human trafficking and terrorism, to watch millions of dollars spent in their country on wind turbines and carbon reduction programs?
… the People’s Climate March was one long, loud, loosely organized demand that vast sums of money be taken from the wealthy and given to the clients of the coalitions and alliances and networks and task forces that make up today’s environmental justice movement. They’ve had enough of debating climate models. They want to start taking — now.
… in Oakland — always on the cutting edge — the entire “climate change” movement at last fully, irrevocably and overtly embraced communism as its stated goal. Any concerns about “optics” or operating in “stealth mode” were abandoned.
The “climate change” “crisis” is now nothing but the latest justification for “total revolution” and getting rid of capitalism forever.
Until recently, those attacking the capitalist system as the cause of global warming were intentionally a little vague as to what will replace it if we are to solve the problem. But on Sunday in Oakland, that curtain was drawn back and the new system was finally revealed: Communism.
I have always been wary of intellectuals. They love arcane theories that often have little to do with real life and this is particularly true of eco-intellectuals who have embraced a panoply of lies and claims about the “environment”, “fossil fuels”, “sustainability”, and other notions that permit them to bloviate without once addressing reality.
This has been a week of eco-propaganda on a global scale. On Sunday there were “Climate Marches.” On Tuesday there will be a UN “Climate Summit”, and there will likely be an avalanche of nonsense in the media intended to make us believe we have control, influence, or impact on the climate when it is obvious to the rest of us that we—the human race—have none.
America’s restoration will not come about unless we put an end to the deliberately corrosive propaganda that is passed off as education, which in turn will not happen unless patriots fight tooth and nail to make it happen. Backing down from this fight is not an option.
I just returned from New York, where I attended my 30th Columbia University reunion. I celebrated with my esteemed classmates. Everyone except Barack Obama. As usual- he wasn’t there. Not even a video greeting. Not a personalized letter to his classmates. Nothing. But worse, no one at our 30th reunion ever met him. The President of the United States is the ghost of Columbia University.
I’m certainly no “Johnny come lately.” For five years now (since 2007 when it became clear Barack Obama was running for President), I’ve been quoted in the media as saying that no one I’ve ever met at Columbia can remember ever meeting, or even seeing, our college classmate Barack Obama. Don’t you think the media should be asking questions? Isn’t this a very strange story?
President Barack Obama favorably quoted and praised on Wednesday in his speech before the United Nations a controversial Muslim cleric whose organization has reportedly endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
…The State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau (CT) was forced to issue multiple apologies earlier this year after the Washington Free Beacon reported on its promotion of Bin Bayyah on Twitter.
… Obama and the White House are still supportive of Bin Bayyah, who, despite his past statements, is still hailed by some as a moderate alternative to ISIL and al Qaeda.
So, in our search for the definition of the term “moderate islamic” our dhimmi brethren on the left side of the aisle have defined it as those who seek only to kill Americans and Jews … as opposed to the ‘radical islamics’ like IS that seek to kill everyone.
Well, either that or Obama and his comrades have no idea who or what the enemy is and seemingly doesn’t care enough to identify the generals.
As pointed out by Noah Rothman : In UN speech, Obama praised Muslim cleric who backed killing American soldiers
Few in the mainstream press, however, are likely to make note of this careless and offensive choice of words from the President of the United States.
There was a time not long ago that the president insisted he thought he was “a better speechwriter than my speechwriters.” Maybe he should give crafting his own remarks a try. He sure couldn’t do any worse.
… the treaty is exceedingly dangerous because it can be amended by a majority vote of signatory countries, which would negate the Senate’s constitutional authority to approve treaties by ceding it to foreign countries
… In addition, the treaty could prevent the U.S. from providing arms to strategic allies like Taiwan and Israel.
Most readers probably pondered how ISIS was able to infiltrate a country and the awful acts they were prepared to perpetrate. I didn’t. My thoughts ran immediately to the fact that at least one of the individuals had a “prohibited” weapon and ammunition. As with all gun control, law abiding citizens are unarmed and unprotected, while the criminals have their weapons.
Australia has some of the most restrictive gun control laws on earth.
Any and all home-grown Islamic terrorism should be able, if need be, to be met by a well-armed civilian militia. The United Kingdom has had two beheadings of members of the public in the last two years, with neither police nor civilians able to prevent it. It has prohibitive gun laws.
With news of the ISIS plot to randomly abduct members of the Australian public and behead them, Australian sentiment on guns is dramatically shifting.
It appears Australians are finally understanding the importance of gun ownership and craving it at a time when the world is increasingly unsafe.
Self defense is a luxury when times are safe. When times become hard, the giggling and jokes go away, and people begin to think grown up thoughts. Those who want to continue to think as children pretend that the police will take care of them. Adults know better.
Have you ever heard the name of Army National Guard Sergeant Derrick Miller? If not you need to know who he is.
Sgt. Derrick Miller was charged with the murder of an Afghan man who turned out to be a spying insurgent. He has been sentenced to life in a military prison with the possibility of parole for defending himself and saving his squad from an imminent attack.
During a heightened period of instability in the Middle East, beheadings of Americans by Islamic terrorists, and ongoing national security threats, the Council on American-Islamic Relations sent me a copy of the Quran for my reference library.
Here’s what he should have been able to say next:
I ran it through the shredder, put it back in the package and wrote ‘return to sender’.
On its face, the distribution of the Quran may seem innocuous. At any other time, I may not have been so bothered by its delivery. However, the package arrived three days before the 13th anniversary of Sept. 11. This is noteworthy.
CAIR’s cover letter does not acknowledge in any way the anniversary of our country’s worst terrorist attack. It’s not what the letter says, it’s what it doesn’t say. CAIR does not condemn terrorist attacks or recent actions by Islamic terrorists. The expectation appears to be that we’re to simply accept this peaceful gesture and overlook what terrorists are doing in the name of the religious book.
The Democratic Party’s poor performance among white voters is leading it to engage in some very questionable behavior. If Obama and his party weren’t polling so poorly among white voters, it’s doubtful that the Democrats would be nakedly exploiting racial tensions in Ferguson in the hopes of turning out black voters for the midterm elections.
White voters have less faith in government. They believe that the country is on the wrong track. They aren’t committed Republicans, but they are deeply skeptical of a deeply racist Democratic Party that no longer speaks to their needs and values. The Democratic Party’s response to its loss of support among white voters has been to accuse them of racism. In the same New Yorker interview in which Obama claimed that ISIS was a JV team, he blamed racism for his poor approval ratings among white voters. Both claims were delusional and wrong.
White voters did not belatedly become racist. The Democratic Party stopped listening to them and went down a racist rabbit hole trying to defend an administration where Al Sharpton and Eric Holder are dictating a national conversation on race.
In August, ISIS kidnapped 3,000 women and girls at Mount Sinjar and are using them right now as “war booty.” These women — and girls as young as 12 — are being beaten, humiliated and raped daily.
Yet American feminists and liberal women’s groups have remained shockingly silent on this barbarism. Instead of focusing on this very real war on women, Democratic women reserve their vicious attacks for Republicans and the Tea Party.
An exodus of top-level officials from the Department of Homeland Security is undercutting the agency’s ability to stay ahead of a range of emerging threats, including potential terrorist strikes and cyberattacks, according to interviews with current and former officials.
Homeland security don’t mean what it used to mean. It is a concept that has been fundamentally transformed. So when folks report that DHS is failing to fulfill its mission they are referring to the old mission.
Also transformed is the concept of threat – terrorism, bloodshed, colonization, invasion are not threats to the new mission.
Any top-level turnover is simply the result of Americans taking positions in the ” Department of Homeland Security” only to realize that homeland security is a target of the department – not a goal.
We don’t have to guess at what the moonbats participating in yesterday’s People’s Climate March really want. All we have to do is ask them ….
Given the political leverage to “turn everything off,” many of these nuts would do it — never mind the tens of millions who would die as a result.
When authoritarian screwballs got the chance to impose their wacko ideology on Cambodia, they killed a quarter of the population. America wouldn’t get off that lucky if hardcore environmentalists took control.
Even if bureaucrats can’t impose the optimal temperature, they can sure seize wealth and power in the attempt.
There was a time, not too long ago, that you could accuse a greenie of being a communist and get a denial. You could actually watch them pretend to be insulted, it was entertaining. Now, at least some of them don’t pretend anymore.
We anachronists who retain a bias toward the hard sciences would employ very different measures to prevent a freezing ocean and a boiling one. To an engineer, soldier or plumber, this is obvious.
But how do leaders of the environmental left address these opposing doomsdays? By raising taxes, increasing government, impeding capitalism and reducing national sovereignty. Coincidentally, the same policies they would promote if their supposed environmental catastrophe was utter fiction.
When natural gas production was a too-expensive alternative to oil, the environmental lobby promoted it as a surefire way to reduce carbon emissions. Close the coal- and oil-fired plants; convert cars to run on CNG. Yes, it will devastate industries, cost jobs and burn billions of dollars, but think of the children!
Since even malevolent industrialists love their kids, energy barons took the greens’ advice and found cheaper, more efficient ways to extract and transport natural gas. What a victory for the movement! But instead of celebrating, envirolobbyists rent their garments over their once-miraculous fuel. The instant green energy translated into Big Oil profits, progressives placed the CNG and fracking on their naughty list.
… their true religion is raising taxes, increasing government, impeding capitalism and reducing national sovereignty. Climate change is just a temporary excuse to achieve those ends.
The more things become criminalized under encroaching totalitarianism, the more people become criminalized, the less respect anyone has for the law. You can’t get out of high school without observing the phenomenon

When I was kid, if I had been suspended for such, my father would have whipped some school tyrant butt. I can promise you that. He’d a done it or died trying.
Cause wanna-be tyrants who know their actions will get them an ass-whoop, remain just that … wanna-be.
The Secret Service is in some not-too-secret trouble following an incident Friday in which a man with a knife climbed over the White House fence, ran 70 yards across the lawn, and then entered the White House through an unlocked front door.
Fortunately, and entirely unsurprisingly, neither the president nor his family were in the White House at the time, having left for a weekend retreat at Camp David. Not that one man with a knife could really do much damage anyway without access to ISIS’s YouTube account.
» Islamic State’s ultimate goal: Saudi Arabia’s oil wells
Good Article, Poor Title
The Saudi oil wells are simply an investment to the islamobutchers. Their ultimate goal is the planet earth and all humans residing on it. If islam ever successfully establishes their global caliphate, they won’t give a second thought to oil. Under their rule there would be no use for it.
IS knows that it will only feel secure once Saudi Arabia is part of the Caliphate, and its oil fields are under IS control — which is why the group has two logical next steps.
First, to capture and secure the most important country in the Muslim world: Saudi Arabia.
If the battle for Syria and Iraq attracted tens of hundreds, (some say tens of thousands) of young Muslims, the battle for control of Islam’s two holiest sites, Mecca and Medina, are very likely to attract many more fighters into the ranks of the Islamic State.
And second, to take on the United States — the one remaining superpower that could stop its march on the oilfields of Saudi Arabia, and ultimately the rest of the Gulf.
ISIS is yanking at America’s tail right now, because it knows that Obama will not fight the war to win. It needs to prove itself regionally, and there is no better way to do so than to watch America retreat.
… the reason behind Obama’s reluctance to go to war is grounded in his jaundiced view of America. If we say ISIS is terrible and that we’re going to protect the world from ISIS, the implication is that we’re the good guys. Except that Obama cannot have America be good. Therefore, America cannot fight a war against evil.
Average Americans are so ignorant that, if the Democrats lose just a few more wars voters won’t remember that victory is possible
… the DOJ has stonewalled the Fast and Furious investigation for three years, despite numerous subpoenas issued by Oversight Committee chairman Darryl Issa (R-CA), who began issuing them shortly after the GOP gained control of the House in the 2010 election. By June 2011 the DOJ’s delaying tactics were so transparent, Issa began threatening Holder with contempt citations. On June 28, 2012, Holder became the first sitting Cabinet member in history to be held in contempt of Congress. The vote of 255-67 included 17 Democrats who supported the criminal contempt resolution.
Twenty-seven months later, nothing has changed. The DOJ continues to subvert the law, even as Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media continue to insist—as they do with every scandal afflicting the Obama administration—that the investigation amounts to little more than a politically-motivated witch hunt.
… Pick any scandal, be it Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS targeting of conservatives, the lies at the heart of ObamaCare, the dropping of the Black Panther voter intimidation case, the seizing of AP reporter files, etc., etc., and the common thread is transparent. Aided and abetted by an in-the-tank mainstream media and see-no-evil Democrats, the Obama administration has employed an avalanche of lies, stonewalling, and disinformation aimed at producing one outcome: “scandal fatigue” among the American public.
“the horse ran away and we immediately shut the burn door.”
After boasting of the “immediacy” of the response, Kerry then walked that back claiming that the response was delayed in order to create an inclusive Iraqi government and assemble an international coalition. The international coalition consists of countries whose leaders are willing to be photographed with John Kerry. Some might say that’s a more serious sacrifice than actually sending troops into battle.
The 50 number isn’t a coincidence. The “Coalition of the Willing” had 49 members. Obama is trying to show that he can go one country more. Even if unlike the “Coalition of the Willing” its members won’t fight or do much of anything. But they will do “something” even if it’s issuing a press release and that will allow the media to claim that Obama has assembled a larger coalition than George W. Bush did.
By one country. Of such petty cynicism is the anti-ISIS strategy woven.
The real mission of the “Do Something” coalition isn’t to destroy ISIS; it is to protect the reputation of Islam. Kerry’s real mission in the Senate wasn’t to lay out a strategy for defeating ISIS, but to protect the reputation of Obama. If the strategy is out to lunch and the mission seems vague, it’s because the real action isn’t taking place in Iraq, but in Washington. It’s not about defeating ISIS. It’s about perpetuating the disastrous policies that allowed it to become so big and so powerful.
Shehada was now clearly liberated from the distracting and draining routines of developing power plants and factories; Allah had now bestowed upon him the blessing of being able to spend his days in the productive, fulfilling and cheerful way that every good and obedient Muslim is obligated to do by the Qur’an: executing and beheading the enemies of Islam and reveling in their blood.
In the process of killing its “enemies,” this death cult, like all death cults, naturally eats its own children. This is why Islam devours Muslims along with non-Muslims — and why commentators who argue that Islamic Jihad cannot be Islamic because Muslims are also its victims have a completely ignorant (and often deliberate) misunderstanding of what Islamic Jihad really is.
For the Jihadist, as for his Nazi and Communist totalitarian cousins, the goal of life is not to treasure it—and definitely not to utilize it to pursue individual happiness or personal fulfillment. The goal of life is to lose it in the very act of eradicating the enemy. This is why the idea of America, and its sacred principle of “the pursuit of happiness”—embedded in the Declaration of Independence—is anathema to Islam, just as it is anathema to Nazism and Communism (as well as to the radical Left). The pursuit of happiness implies that the individual and his will matter.
DHS has said that while there is no evidence of a direct threat by ISIL to the United States, it is aware that the group’s affiliates have been discussing the possibility of crossing the southern border.
“There have been Twitter, social media exchanges among ISIL adherents across the globe speaking about that as a possibility,”
Why is there hesitancy to report on the murder of a college student by a self-described terrorist? Perhaps those suppressing this story fear that if they were to identify a particular group as evil, the American public might react in a discriminatory or hateful manner. In reality, when the press fails its journalistic duty to identify evil, evil prospers and grows – just like it’s doing right now.
Hashed and re-hashed to hash depletion.
Revealed, pointed out, mentioned, brought up and declared.
Thousands of accusations and indictments by we, the “racists”, have fallen on deaf ears and blind eyes.
But what the heck, let’s do it at least one more time …
Since the early 1990s, the United Nations high commissioner for refugees has selected 200,000 to 250,000 refugees from Islamic countries to be resettled in the United States. Most of them have come from Somalia and Iraq.
… Syria could soon be added to the mix in the midst of that country’s brutal civil war. The Obama administration has been greasing the skids for the Syrian refugees for months, WND has learned, and the refugees will soon be dumped on American cities throughout the U.S.
If the country weren’t run by liberals, a handful of Syrians could be assimilated. Eventually they might become productive Americans. Tens of thousands of Syrians, freed by welfare and multiculturalism from even trying to take part in our society, will go right on being Syrians for generations.
Their numbers will grow quickly. The Somali Muslims the feds have used to colonize Minnesota have an average of six children per couple.
Few of us would want to live in Syria, homeland of the Islamic State. Yet we put up with a government that is spending our money to make our country more like Syria.
With an increasingly Muslim population will come Muslim levels of violence and instability. If we fail to take our country back, events like the Boston Marathon bombing will become weekly if not daily occurrences.
The biggest battle over gun rights this election season isn’t in Washington, D.C. but in Washington State. Second Amendment supporters in Washington are facing off with the gun control lobby over dueling ballot initiatives…
So far, it hasn’t been much of a fight. The anti-gun Washington Alliance For Gun Responsibility, supported by Seattle millionaires like Bill Gates and Paul Allen, has already raised more than $7 million
There is no doubt this fight is a big deal. A bigger deal than most people realize. Implications are reaching far and wide and it seems that the largest most effective group with the largest reach is sleeping at the wheel.
Much the way the small infestations of blue have been imposing their will on the vast sea of red nationwide, authoritarian leftists in the Seattle area often manage to inflict their malign ideology on the rest of an otherwise mostly reasonable state. This has been facilitated by the power that money can buy, as demonstrated by Microsoft moonbats Bill Gates and Paul Allen
Maybe the Age of Obama is not a matter of moral collapse so much as mass gullibility.
Wish I’d said that.
I hereby declare re-definition of all devices in my possession formerly referred to as “firearms”. Henceforth, they shall be Lead Extruders and are thereby exempt from firearm regulation by nosy government-holes.
Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College anti-apartheid event on Feb. 18, 1981 sponsored by the Students for Economic Democracy, a group affiliated with the 1960s far left militant group the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) led by Tom Hayden, former husband of Jane Fonda; unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers; his wife Bernadine Dohrn and Columbia University’s SDS chairman Mark Rudd. The SDS was the precursor to the violent Ayers-led Weather Underground movement.
“From his teenage years under the mentorship of Frank Marshall Davis, to his socialist days at Occidental College, to his life-transforming encounters at New York’s Socialist Scholars Conferences, to his immersion in the stealthily socialist community-organizer networks of Chicago, Barack Obama has lived in a thoroughly socialist [and, I might add, Muslim]world.”
Bill Clinton was ambiguous about the definition of “sex” and “is”. Barack Obama is uncertain about what the definition of “war” might be
Whether or not we’re in a war depends on who you ask and on which day of the week you ask him. Secretary of State John Kerry said that bombing ISIS in two countries wasn’t a war. After the White House spokesman said it is a war, Kerry agreed that maybe it might be a war after all.
Forget about finding a strategy, this administration can’t even agree on whether the thing that it needs to find a strategy for is a war.
… Obama bombed Libya to implement regime change, but no one called it a war. It was just one of those things where we dropped a lot of bombs on another country in coordination with rebels on the ground to help them take over that country. Definitely not a war. Possibly one of those “man-caused disasters”.
… If we can’t even properly define what we’re doing, how can we do it at all? If we can’t even admit that we’re fighting a war and that ISIS is inspired by Islam, how can we beat an enemy that we can’t fight or name?
A rose will still be the same plant by any other name and ISIS will still be the same band of Islamic headchoppers even if you insist on referring to them as a junior varsity team of man-caused disasters belonging to no particular faith or religion.
Listening to Senator Rand Paul being interviewed by radio host Glenn Beck last week, one must appreciate the clarity of mind he had in changing his position. When he said he would not support bombing ISIS, they had not beheaded two Americans. They had not encroached on and threatened American consulates and embassies in the Middle East.
As the senator said to Glenn Beck, they are now a very clear threat to the United States. At the time he did not support attacking them, they had not shown themselves to be a clear threat to the United States.
While appreciating Paul’s ‘clarity of mind’ one must also remember that Paul failed refused to foresee the threat of islam before it resulted in Americans being separated from their heads. The threat of islam to American security has been real for several decades, just as severe a threat twenty years ago as it is today.
So don’t hold your breath waiting for me to pat ole Rand on the back and say attaboy there curly, for just now making the discovery of what I knew way back. Where was Rand when GOP fatheads were calling folks like me islamophobes? Oh yea, that was him.
ISIS spans the greater portion of Syria and Iraq. Christians and Yazidi are on the verge of annihilation through a ruthless genocide. Two Americans have had their heads severed from their bodies. The Iraqi soldiers keep falling back. ISIS has captured military bases and with them our weaponry. The cancer continues to spread.
See, even the author of the linked article misses the point. That last excerpt begins with “ISIS spans …” and ends with “… cancer continues to spread”. Comparing ISIS to a cancer … on what? islam? Islam is the cancer. Islam is the untreated infection and ISIS is just the little trickle of puss from the pimple on top of the puss-pocket.
Rand Paul deserves no more accolades than Hanoi Horseface Kerry for when he made his mighty stand against the “cold-blooded Kiddlers, marauding … making a mockery of a peaceful religion”.
Given Paul’s isolationist record of appeasement and tolerance, he’s no more likely to support or suggest a real strategy for a real war on islam than are the hordes of islamic-butt kissers that still use the words ‘moderate’ and ‘radical’ in reference to islam.
Until the leaders of western civilizations grow the nads to declare that the puss oozing out the top is no more radical than the puss at the bottom of the pocket – we will continue to waste the lives of American troops swabbing around a pimple.
But I hafta admit, though, there does seem to some strategic logic in islamic-butt kissing. It’s a lot harder to cut somebody’s head off when it’s stuck up your ass.
… the SPLC inspired a man to attempt to murder conservatives. Its friends in the media give the SPLC a pass in the same way the media refused to give Sarah Palin a pass even as it became clearer and clearer that Giffords’ shooter was a-political and mentally disturbed.
…. The Human Rights Campaign has just published a “report” naming specific conservative, mostly Christians, as “exporters of hate.” They too have a target map with black X’s in their report. Each person has a penciled “mug shot” and, at first glance, what appears to be a bounty on their head. The report also tells the unhinged where these people live.
… The media will not be outraged by this because the media peddles the gay agenda as aggressively as gay rights activists. They are the same. Should any nut job Corkins wannabe gun down one of the people on this list, the media will, like with the Southern Poverty Law Center, never mention their inspiration.
Let’s be honest with ourselves. If the HRC report does not include an ‘+’ over our homes then we either don’t believe what we preach or we’re just too lazy to do what it takes to piss off the Left to the point of marking us for assassination.
… Sorry to admit, their report does not have a marker over the Bubbarosa.
A Literacy Issue.
Curing ignorance with living definitions of “Unmitigated Gall” and “Dhimmitude”.
… they have a human right not just to free food, but to free food that meets the specifications of the terrorist death cult they have come from afar to spread. Implicit in this assertion is their human right to force you to provide this food on essentially a slave basis.
Commissioner McLaughlin has indicated that American taxpayers will be compelled to finance the Muslim colonists’ special free food. However, for now they are still on their own regarding bomb-making supplies, as well as tickets to the Middle East so they can fight for the Islamic State.
“Some food shelves are trying to meet the need, but some of them already got canned beans that have already been mixed with pork — and there is a literacy issue here,” said community activist Fartun Weli.
A literacy issue. As in Fartun’s benefactors are ignorant of his needs, they fail to understand what’s going on.
If you’ve ever been tempted to look up the definition of “unmitigated gall” – don’t. Right there it is. There, in Minnesota, is a community of people who [ having been rescued from their homeland foodless shithole of a country and brought to the greatest, safest, food-every-damn-where country on the face of the earth, given free everything including free frikkin food ] – have the audacity to insist on a menu.
And you really don’t need to look up the word “dhimmi” either. That word is defined by the county commissioner
With signs in hand, they marched to the Hennepin County commissioners’ office to ask Peter McLaughlin for help. Most live in his district and feel he can help them help themselves.
McLaughlin and the group disagree over the availability of halal or kosher food at food shelves in Minnesota.
He did say they would need to petition all county commissioners for the money to make this food shelf a reality.
A non-dhimmi answer would go something like this:
Dried beans – in a bag – cheaper than the dirt you used to eat before you got here.
Get a job. Buy a bag. Add water and heat.
And note that the water is clear and doesn’t make you crap your pants and puke like the stuff you had to squeeze out of mud back where you came from.
And note that you can heat your pot of beans and water with fuel that didn’t come out of the south end of north bound bovines.
And not that if you can’t shut your yap about pork-free this and halal-that you can always drag your unappreciative asses back to aforementioned shithole.
If you want to be part of what’s hot and trending, dhimmitude is all the rage. It’s a big tent sort of a movement, so all are welcome. No prior experience required, though liars and cowards are preferred.
This month (and the month isn’t even over yet), Secretary of State John Kerry really outdid himself, showing how it’s done for those who may be new to the dhimmitude circle.
Precisely how is the Muslim community in America a source of strength for all of us? And just how do you understand the directive to kill all infidels (and apostates and hypocrites) as actually meaning, hey, we respect all people?
Cinco de Mayo isn’t even a real holiday in Mexico. Yet it’s now illegal, in this country to wear an American flag t-shirt on that day according to the liberal extremist Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Remember a few years ago when some ‘evil’ white kids wore American flag shirts to a school with has the majority of it’s students as Mexicans? It caused a big uproar, and now it’s officially illegal to wear an American Flag t-short every May 5.
The unspeakable savagery to those of us left with a soul is too much to bear — but the media yawns, and Obama wrings his hands in frustration that Americans might associate the Islamic state with Islam.
Those of us who warned for years of the growing Islamic global menace — savagery on an incomprehensible scale — were viciously attacked, led by a media hellbent on norming this savagery and vilifying anyone who disagreed. And even now, as journalists get their heads sawed off with six-inch knives, the media hits bottom and keeps digging.
Here are nuns and a mother superior slamming the media for their refusal to report on these monstrous war crimes — for fear of offending Islam.
… accused of plotting to abduct people off the streets and decapitate them in a manner similar to the recent ISIL beheadings of US and UK citizens in Syria.
Azari allegedly intended to wrap the bodies of victims in ISIL flags and upload video of the murders online.
AFP Acting Chief Commissioner Andrew Colvin said the targeted terror cell was planning to commit “random violent acts against members of the public”.
Commissioner Scipione said the raids highlighted the “strength and capability of our counter terrorism forces to stop these attacks from happening”.
“We have in fact disrupted that particular attack,” Commissioner Scipione said.
He called for calm after the operation, saying “right now we need to let people know they are safe”.
Yea, but that is Australia. This is America, we’re isolated from the fear of beheaders, boob-choppers and pressure-cooker bombers.
Right? Australia has tolerated the leadership of leftists idiots who have used their nation like a biological laboratory to experiment with no-border immigration and non-integration, tolerance, political correctness and all those other labels for suicidal bullshit. Perhaps taking que from the Brits, they have been importing the islamic contagion for a couple of decades. You know, in the name of being nice and all, they go into crap-hole islamic-controlled regions to pick out the nastiest specimens and bring them back to their pristine democracy, put them on welfare and watch them grow and mutate into cute little Crocodile Dundees.
And grow they did. Problem is, the mutations didn’t go as planned and now Australians see the beginning of pandemic. Just like the Brits who have already experienced hundreds of cases of the Queens subjects suddenly being separated from their life force, Australians realize their heads could pop off any second, their women’s boobs fall off and their biscuits are baconless.
Maybe our liberal rulers aren’t actually devoted to the destruction of America out of sheer moral depravity. Maybe they are simply bark-at-the-moon, bang-your-head-on-the-wall, graze-in-the-front-yard, rubber-room-worthy stark raving insane:
On Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that a comprehensive amnesty bill would have helped America contain the Ebola epidemic in Africa.
With the country in the midst of a severe crisis caused by illegal immigration, amnesty would officially signal that the United States is in the process of being looted out of existence with the consent of its rulers, that no Third Worlder who sneaks in will be denied a ride on the luxuriant welfare gravy train, and that those who want to get their free ride before the USA collapses into insolvency had better do so now.
The major broadcast networks on Wednesday refused to cover the first hearing held by the House Select Committee on Benghazi to begin assessing what happened in the 2012 attack that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, foreign service officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty dead.
… The censorship by the major broadcast networks of this story marks yet another chapter in the media’s lack of coverage on Benghazi
So … either the major media networks now exist only to cover the filthy asses of Dhimmicrat politicians (wow, was that redundant or whut?) OR, for them it’s no big deal when a president and secretary of state sit down and watch terrorists attack and butcher Americans without bothering to even ask how they could help. And Then lie about it and imprison a scape-goat film maker.
… the most interesting “silence” was not Mann’s but that of all those who believe in Big Climate alarmism. If you go through #AskDrMann Tweet by Tweet, in between the mockery above, there are hardly any friendly questions from true believers.
Why would that be? Well, perhaps, once it’s known that you’re a touchy type who only takes puffballs from sycophants, the whole thing becomes too tedious to be worth bothering with, even if you agree with him. Mann is certainly a bully, but worse than that, he’s a bore – and his insistence on ideological purity is killing his cause.
The purpose of free speech is to test ideas: You have the argument, and you win it. Mann can’t do that. So, because Mann can’t win the debate, Ward and Laden are demanding that he be protected from ever having to participate in one: The climate “convo” should be held only between people who agree with Mann. That’s never going to happen, and the more you insist on it the more you make fiascos like today’s inevitable. Especially when the guy you’re trying to protect is a goon who sneers at “serial climate disinformers” and “#KochMachine” stooges all day long on Twitter. If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the global warm-mongering.
So just a thought for Messrs Ward and Laden: Instead of arguing that it’s a violation of the First Amendment to laugh at Dr Mann, wouldn’t it be easier to get some non-laughingstock figure who can debate his way out of a paper bag?
It’s this kind of idiotic rhetoric from Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party, that trivializes and belittles the actual violence that women do suffer from.
Nancy Pelosi and the despicable Democrats who perpetuate this silly “War on Women” crap, are not nearly as indignant about the women being brutally raped and sold into sex slavery by ISIS.
The Islamic State might slice off an infidel woman’s breasts and then kill her, but at least they’re not infringing on her Right to birth control like evil Republicans do.
Just another victim of the Kiddlers that Mock the Religion of Peace
At least 14 members of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group were killed Tuesday near Baghdad when a rocket whose warhead they were filling with chlorine gas exploded.
Is this workplace violence or what? Where was OSHA? When are labor unions gonna stand up for …. wait.
Did he say chlorine gas?
Where da heck did they get chorine gas? Ain’t that a no-no? a WMD that don’t exist?
Given that virtually everything Obama does regarding the military appears to be explicitly intended to destroy morale, this could be a stroke of genius. After pacifying Iraq at the cost of thousands of American lives, Obama turned it over to the terrorists, who are now staging public executions of US citizens. Now instead of fighting the terrorists to reclaim a critically important region, the troops are sent to fight a virus in a hellhole of no strategic value whatsoever.
… the principal impression one takes away from the story is of the president’s whininess. He seems to take it as a personal affront that Islamic terrorists have disrupted the torpor of his second term, and have even required him to make a decision to use military force. A recurring theme is Obama’s belief that he is unpopular because Americans just don’t appreciate how deliberate, how careful, how nuanced–how smart, in a word–he is
“She told me, ‘Ray, we are to go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the seventh floor in a bad light,’” says Maxwell. He says “seventh floor” was State Department shorthand for then-Secretary of State Clinton and her principal advisors.
“… ‘But isn’t that unethical?’ She responded, ‘Ray, those are our orders.’ ”
Security of the Homeland
DHS was created in response to the mass slaughter of almost 3,000 Americans by 19 muslims … in one day.
Or, if I were politically correct … 19 radical islamic militants? or 19 terrorists that were not islam. or just 19 others.
Without getting into the idiocy of politically correct propers, I’ll just leave it at ‘muslims’.
Anyway, once a federal bureau, department is created and set up to provide for the security of the homeland from further muslim attacks, it makes sense – how? – to staff it with radical muslims?
A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) adviser long engulfed in controversy over his radical views was let go from his role in the department last week after a long fight by lawmakers and others to revoke the individual’s privileges at DHS.
Mohamed Elibiary was until last week a senior member of DHS’ Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).
Elibiary has long been a lightening rod for controversy and a poster boy for critics who accuse the Obama administration of appointing radical advisers to a range of sensitive security posts.
Elibiary, for instance, came under fire in June for tweeting about the “inevitable” return of the Muslim “caliphate.” His tweets were later praised by affiliates of the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) and potentially used to recruit extremist followers.
Elibiary also has maintained that America is “an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution” and argued that the Muslim Brotherhood poses no threat to the United States.
The exact details of the case have long been shrouded in mystery, with various officials providing unclear and at times contradictory answers about whether DHS ever properly investigated the allegations that Elibiary inappropriately accessed classified documents from a secure site and may have attempted to pass them to reporters.
Elibiary is what the DHS was originally created to protect the Homeland from. So, to answer my question above, there is no common sense that would justify his employment in the federal department whose primary task is to protect the people from security threats like Elibiary.
But there ya go – who put him there to begin with?
“They did not realize that this time it was the real thing,”
“It seems to me that each of those poor men had been used to mock executions,” he said. “They had been forced to do this sort of thing before. This is how depraved this group is.”
The same police who wouldn’t step in when young girls were being raped, are on the go whenever a Muslim’s feelings are hurt.
Muslims in the UK are treated by law as a special privileged class. Even the most minor insults to their feelings result in an immediate police crackdown on anyone, even old women or children.
Meanwhile Muslim settler atrocities against the natives get a pass unless they become too public.
A foreigner who makes pretend for a living has managed to divine the intent of the Founding Fathers where constitutional scholars have failed, recognizing that they didn’t really mean all that stuff about “the people’s liberty’s teeth” or the Second Amendment either, and actually wanted us helplessly at the mercy of criminals and the State.
… Neeson may turn out to be one of the very people we need guns to defend ourselves against. Indulging fully in the malign flakiness that characterizes the entertainment industry, he has considered converting to Islam
“To be honest, if they don’t come and restore these neighborhoods for these people, like when you gotta go travel miles to Walmart and to get gas and stuff like that, it should be right here. If they don’t restore this community for people who stay here it’s gonna be hell to pay.”
Who is “they”? The property and business owners? What obligates someone to rebuild their property after lootestors burnt it down, so it can be burnt down again? Or is “they” the government? In which case they just may, indeed, build entire business districts, filling each building with all the favorite goodies that lootesters prefer, stage a grand opening with complimentary bricks, bats, crowbars and other window-smashing, door-crashing implements and have ESPN lib-holes interview the winners.
And I guess “hell to pay” would be burning down the rest of the community and businesses.
Lootesters just want jobs.
They know how to paint … they know how to cut grass … some of them know how to work on furnaces … they can put up windows … miniblinds … they can clean, they can vacuum … give us those jobs. Set it up to where we can get those jobs.
In other words, forget about how economies work, just give people money; and if absolutely necessary, ask them to do some chores to pretend they’re earning the free money.
Jobs occur when businesses are successful and profitable to the point of requiring employees. No business makes a profit once their establishment, their property, is looted and burnt to the ground. The only jobs available then are cleaning up and rebuilding and a successful business owner is not likely to hire the people that burnt their business to the ground to rebuild it. And if the business owner has any real common sense they’re not likely to rebuild in the same community that robbed them of everything necessary for maintaining a successful business.
Memo to Secretary Kerry: the reason there’s a “tortured debate going on about terminology” is because the administration you work for is sending out not just different, but contradictory, messages about the nature of the conflict we have with ISIS. And while you may think it’s a “waste of time” to focus on whether we’re at war or not, it actually matters. The citizens of this nation deserve to know whether or not we’re at war; and one might expect a minimally competent administration to be saying the same thing rather than conflicting things. To dismiss these matters by saying he’ll answer the question “if people need to find a place to land” is quite patronizing, which raises this question: What exactly has Mr. Kerry ever achieved to make him believe he’s above the rest of us? He’s been wrong on virtually every major foreign-policy matter since the 1970s.
Governor Cuomo seems to agree with granting perks that should be reserved for legal residents to illegals as well, announcing a last-ditch effort to drum up support from liberal extremists – his newly found desire to provide them with college tuition.
Part of the problem, according to PreferredOne, is that MNsure hasn’t even been able to verify its customers’ information. PreferredOne said that some of its customers have turned out not to even live in Minnesota.
