Is everyone ready for their annual lecture about how they’ve let Obama down but it’s not too late to repent and quit being so unpatriotic? That Is Not Who We Are(tm) as a country! Those Are Not Our Values (c).
In an effort to check off every possible box on the victim grievance scale, Obama has invited the gay boyfriend of one of the men murdered by the San Bernardino islamic terrorists to sit with the Mooch in the balcony at the State of the Union address. This will not be to rally people against the murderous Muslim ideology. It will not be about demanding a change in the Islamic community to embrace tolerance of other religions and other lifestyles.
It will be to lecture decent Americans, who committed no crime, that it’s not too late to love your neighbor and pass some “common sense” Executive Orders:
Touched by the kindness of Muslim neighbors after his boyfriend was killed in the San Bernardino terrorist attack last month, Ryan Reyes became an unplanned spokesman against religious intolerance.
On Tuesday he’ll take his message to Washington, where he’ll sit in the balcony at the State of the Union address, a guest of President Obama.
For Reyes, it will be a moment with potential for healing — for himself and, he hopes, the country.
“If we ostracize people, they can’t help us,” Reyes said in an interview with The Times. “If we embrace, we can all help each other. I’m hoping this can unify us as a nation.”
If “we ostracize people, they can’t help us” what?
Who is doing the ostracizing?
Muslims attacked a Christmas holiday party. The Muslims are not the victims here. The people they killed are the victims.
But at least now we know why Obama stopped off in San Bernardino for a whole three hours before another luxurious, two-week, multi-million dollar Hawaiian vacation. It wasn’t to console the victims’ families or to promise to shutter and prosecute the mosques that radicalized at least one homegrown terrorist.
It was to pick out a pro-gun control, protected minority status tool to pimp his political agenda.
Rather, in his final national address on the state of the country, the president plans to exhort Americans to embrace an optimistic view of themselves and the nation in 2016 and beyond his presidency.
Part of the message, aides say, is about uniting Americans and working to realize their shared potential.
A) Bullshit. Obama is incapable of letting the smallest occasion pass without interjecting his far Left ideology into it much less a national audience with his political enemies in forced attendance. B) So, in other words, Jimmy Carter’s “Crisis of Confidence” speech.
Then, as mourners gathered for a memorial service a few days after the attack, four bearded men in tunics appeared on the sidewalk, Reyes recalled.
The men were leaders in the local Islamic community. One was a member of the mosque attended by the San Bernardino shooters.
Reyes told them about his relationship with Kaufman. During a quiet conversation on the perimeter of the crowd, he accepted their gifts of flowers and tearful condolences.
“I was so moved,” Reyes said. “They risked their own personal safety to come and pay their respects. It really meant a lot to me.”
So, the fellow mosque members of the murderers came to survey the damage but it is *they* were the ones who “risked their own personal safety”.
They would throw Reyes off the highest building within the hour if the could get away with it. But they risked their lives.
From who exactly? Who is going around killing Muslims in the US so much that they fear for their lives?
So nice recovery, Mr. Reyes. I guess you’ve got to suck somebody else’s dick now. Might as we be that of the people who killed your partner before his body got cold so you can lecture the people who didn’t kill him about tolerance and civility.
That is life and death in Obama Bizarro-world these days.
There is a tactic being floated around that Donald Trump’s reasonable comments regarding a temporary moratorium on Muslims from certain countries as being used as a “recruitment tool” for ISIS. It is, of course, nonsense. ISIS is the most well-funded, well-equipped, non-state terrorist group in the history of the world and that is not an exaggeration. They don’t need Donald Trump’s comments to have people sign up. They can write a check or they can cut your head off.
No one is sitting around saying, “Well, I was considering working at the falafel stand or joining ISIS – but those comments from Donald Trump made me think – fuck a fucking falafel stand – la-la-la-la-la-la – Allahu Ackbar!”
No one was thinking about going to earn an honest living this morning but decide instead that trading in kidnapped sex slaves, throwing gays off of buildings, watching their five year old shoot a hostage in the back of the head, or thinking up inventive ways to torture people to death following a forced religion conversion offers a more attractive severance package.
It’s nothing but a smear put forth by John Podesta and his DNC/Soros underwritten appartchiks in the paid leftwing blogosphere.
I don’t particularly care for Donald Trump. But the fact of the matter is that if what you are stating as the reasons to combat Islamic Terrorism isn’t being used as a recruitment tool or locker room material then you are not telling the truth about who they are, what they are doing, or their very real threat to civilization. You’re a Religion of Peacemonger.
And the same muslim “refugees” you want to take in today, are the ones who were throwing Christians off their refugee boat yesterday. In the Victim Hierarchy, to be a Christian in any country in the Middle East is on par with being a Jew in Germany in 1943. The only significant difference is that in Germany it was the state performing a genocide but in today’s Middle East the genocide has been effectively handled by the private sector.
In the ranking of people worthy of being refugees coming to the United States, there is no doubt that anyone other than a Muslim should come first. As we’ve learned since the Bataclan attack in Paris, that only 0.4% of the refugees to the U.S. have been Christians.
So there already is a religious litmus test about who is allowed in and allowed to stay this country. Trump is only wanting to stop the bad ones until they can be vetted which is the opposite of the current policy.
Everyone have a Merry Christmas now, while your children are being taught to worship Allah in the public schools.
Brace yourselves. Editorials are coming.
The Pollutico is dropping pamphlets across America overnight. Like Obama notifying ISIS truck drivers that they need to abandon their vehicles before air strikes, Pollutico is letting all you RWNJs know – the New York Times is not happy that you still have 2nd Amendment civil rights after some of their preferred Muzzloid invaders attempted kill several dozen of your fellow citizens.
“It is a moral outrage and a national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed specifically to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency. These are weapons of war, barely modified and deliberately marketed as tools of macho vigilantism and even insurrection. America’s elected leaders offer prayers for gun victims and then, callously and without fear of consequence, reject the most basic restrictions on weapons of mass killing, as they did on Thursday. They distract us with arguments about the word terrorism. Let’s be clear: These spree killings are all, in their own ways, acts of terrorism.”
“It is not necessary to debate the peculiar wording of the Second Amendment,” the editorial states. “No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable regulation.”
It’s actually not necessary to debate it at all if you want to be specific. I know we can’t be “distracted” by considering what actually happened and factoring that into the argument as to whether some new law would prevent it from happening again because that would make sense. It also wouldn’t promote the New York Times agenda which is anathema to public safety.
The point is we must act now without thinking while the blood on the floor hasn’t dried yet! Because that worked out so well with the Patriot Act, right?
I hope everyone knows what this means when the New York Times moves its usual far leftwing, communist editorials from the backpage to the frontpage – absolutely nothing. The historical significance of their spitflecked rage relies on the public not knowing that the only previous time they did this was to protest a Republican president from being elected after a racist bigot Democrat president whose name is currently being disappeared from campus buildings by college brownshirts all over the country in the fevered state of their high PC dudgeon.
There is no moral high ground for Pinch Sulzberger, Jr. to take here. When you have no morals, you cannot have moral outrage. With unwavering support, the NYT is steadfast in forcing the citizenry to pay for a holocaust of 30 million unborn murdered by Kermit Gosnells and to sell the parts for human experimentation and profit. So spare us the indignation routine or having the temerity to lecture the rest of us about having a “decency” that you are without.
Just the diminishing returns of an all-too-often leftwing temper tantrum for not being able to rule over the several hundred million people who give zero fucks what you or anyone from atop the ivory tower of the incestuously self-absorbed boroughs of New York thinks.
That’s the title above what was formerly Al Gore’s webcast and what was supposed to be his big night to terrorize and fearmonger the world about non-existent climate change from the Eiffel Tower tonight.
*It’s Not Every Day That You Can Say You Were A Part of History*
and above that “The World Is Watching”
They are aren’t they? But will they have the guts to call what they are seeing out for what it is?
So far, CBS Evening News has assiduously avoided saying the words “Muslim”, “Islamic”, “Islamic Terrorism”, “Radical Islam”, or any descriptions of the attackers who launched coordinated attacks across Paris tonight.
Once again, we can safely assume that Amish motorcycle gangs and roving bands of Catholic nuns in matching bowling shirts are burning Western Civilization to the ground.
Coming to a street in America near you in the immediate future thanks to the Moses of Muslims – one Barack Hussein Al-Obama. And who just took credit and declared “Mission Accomplished” for “containing”
ISIS ISIL this morning.
Clearly, some bad apples are trying to give The Religion of Peace ™ a bad rap. Not that the media won’t do everything it can to prevent that from happening.
Over 60 dead. 140+ dead. Approximately 100 hostages are reportedly being executed one-by-one inside the Bataclan Theatre where the American band “The Eagles of Death Metal” were reportedly six songs in to playing a sold out show.
Al Gore’s feed simply reads that the climate terror feed has been suspended out of respect for something else that is apparently going on. Whatever it is.
Also, that “Our thoughts are with all those who are affected and the entire nation”. Again, for whatever is going on.
Noticeably absent – their “Prayers” since they don’t have any. And “affected” by what exactly?
Currently, 60 people have been permanently affected by at least 7 explosions throughout the entire city as martial law has been declared for the first time since 1944.
Looks like you did get to be a part of history after all whether you want to or not. And not that you’re going to learn anything from it.
Related: Yesterday, The University of Minnesota rejected a measure to have college campuses hold annual 9/11 Remembrances because it violates “safe spaces” and probably causes racism against Islam which isn’t a race.
It’s like they said after 9/11 – Never
Forget Remember! Or like Todd Beamer said on Flight 93, “Let ‘s Roll It Go!”
No matter how many innocent people Muslims kill, Muslims always seem to be hardest hit after these episodes. Why do bad things always happen to such a peace loving people this way?
Further: St. Vincent’s Paris Is Burning.
I’ve heard a lot of people complaining about Obama not lowering the flags to half mast.
To what? Have him volunteer some symbolism of his policies designed to make state side soldiers target practice for his brethren?
Fuck the capitol flags, if you have in your front yard or place of business then you should fly it at half mast and upside down until this Marxist piece of shit is evicted from his government subsidized housing.
This country is in mourning until 2017. And you haven’t seen anything yet.
For what seems like the millionth time in the last 7 years, I’ve never been less proud of my country. Pick a topic. For this exact moment, it is going to be the tyranny of a 5-4 majority of unicorn riding mystics cloaked in psychobabble and schmaltz making up laws, rights, and divining the intentions of legislators as they go along. The con-artists formerly known as The Supreme Court.
The Breitbart reconstituted Ben Shapiro makes Scalia look like My Little Pony:
In the end, Kennedy’s case is simply that to be against same-sex marriage is bigotry: “It demeans gays and lesbians for the State to lock them out of a central institution of the Nation’s society.” With breathtaking arrogance, Kennedy concludes:
The limitation of marriage to opposite-sex couples may long have seemed natural and just, but its inconsistency with the central meaning of the fundamental right to marry is now manifest.
For thousands of years, everybody got it wrong. For hundreds of years, every American state got it wrong. Today, the vast majority of the planet’s population gets it wrong, and so do hundreds of millions of Americans. But their wrongness is “manifest.” Why? Because Kennedy says so.
But he goes even further: he explains that rights emanate not from God or nature, but from the wise oligarchs of the government, who can reinterpret rights as they see fit:
[R]ights come not from ancient sources alone. They rise, too, from a better informed understanding of how constitutional imperatives define a liberty that remains urgent in our own era.
Better understanding by whom? By the government, of course.
The Lead-From-Behind Executive. A Beclowned Congress. The Lawless Judiciary. All know better than the tens of millions of voters who spoke out on this issue across the country. “Goddamn their franchise!!!!”, condemns the self-righteous and godless government.
And as “The Free” Press has determined: There has always been Gay Marriage in Oceania.
The Current Squirrel is trying to ban the confederate flag. Nevermind that the government and courts have seceded from the will of the people under a rainbow flag.
There is no end to the Left’s anti-American agenda unless it is the end of an America that believes it has a right to defend itself. It’s the Communist’s long march through the institutions. Next they’ll come for you in your churches. They already demand to know the contents of your prayers. Your religious thoughts will be hate crimes. Your children will be placed in a foster home if you make the mistake of expressing them in public.
The marauding Left does not allow you to remain silent or neutral so there is no safety in merely not participating in The New Normal. Formerly, the Old Abnormal. The same abnormal opinion on gay marriage that Obama held until 3 years ago. You won’t ratify the new federal holiday celebrating this 5-4 decision. What? You didn’t want a day off from work? Homophobe! Homophobe Alert!!! Check Facebook. Where does he work?!?!?! Perhaps poverty will change your doubleplusungood wrongthink.
Today it’s this and tomorrow it’s that you’re a bad parent because you don’t send six-year old Johnny to school in a mini-skirt and you’re stifling his being able to bloom into full womanhood. Do you really want to live in a world where a father is ashamed to have a conversation with his son about how to use a tampon when he gets his first period?
If you don’t realize where the Gaystapo is going with this, you seriously need to wake the fuck up. Sodom and Gomorrah’s Supreme Court just gave them the green light to buttfuck you in the steeple of your church at high noon on Sunday in front of a cheering crowd of leftovers from the Rocky Horror Picture Show and demand you to say you like it or be crucified by The New Romans.
And this post could be about so many things, couldn’t it? Senate Republicans for instance.
But no. This is about the Iraqi army forces turning away from fighting ISIS as they have been criticized by US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter:
The current U.S. plan for defeating the terrorist group ISIS hinges around building up the Iraqi Army’s fighting capability.
But according to U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, the Iraqi Army still has a long way to go.
“The Iraqi forces just showed no will to fight. … We can give them training, we can give them equipment, we obviously can’t give them the will to fight,” Carter told CNN.
Trust me, dear Secretary. When it comes to knowing who doesn’t have the will to fight, I know any Obama appointee speaks from first hand experience.
When people in the US see the Iraqi army turning and running, it may be instinctive to think “Cowards! Stand and fight and die for your country!”
But is that right? Where does one find such men? Are they cultivated in a test tube somewhere? Perhaps a US bootcamp where they get the triage version of basic training and a uniform when not being infiltrated by suicide bombers and having all of their and their families information fed to ISIS by former Saddam Hussein henchmen looking to regain some of their lost prestige or revenge.
Anyone who was brave or moral enough to stand against Saddam Hussein was slaughtered long ago which would bring us up to the US invasion during the Bush years. No fathers. No grandfathers. No stock or history from which to pull the kind of courageous men to stand up against the largest, most well funded, most well-armed, non-state terrorist force in human history.
Cowards, I say! Who wouldn’t stand to fight knowing that Obama is leading from behind when the doctor who gave us bin Laden is rotting in a Pakistani prison.
Of course, this follows a consistent theme with Obama administration officials. The same argument they use against Republicans for Obamacare (you don’t like it but what are you going to do to fix it) puts the teetering Iraqi government in a more perilous position. Namely, that Obama will sit on the sidelines until such a time as the Iraqi government becomes more “inclusive”:
As the jihadists shore up their positions, Abadi, a moderate Shi’ite leader, faces an important test over whether he can draw Sunni Arabs away from Islamic State, a challenge he has struggled to meet despite vows of a more inclusive governance. He must also show the ability to control powerful Shi’ite militias tainted by earlier abuses that have stoked Sunni anger toward his government.
“Abadi may be more vulnerable than ever,” one U.S. official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “And if he’s on the hot seat, we’re being tested too.”
This vaporous promise of help upon the establishment of “an inclusive Iraqi government” is not realistic nor is it intended to be except for the purpose of public consumption. ISIS is a one hour drive from Baghdad. Their agents are already there scouting their next targets with the help of Saddam’s old henchmen.
Is that utopian Shia-Sunni Articles of Confederation going to be drawn up before ISIS arrives in the US military MRAPs and Humvees Obama left for them all of the country? Cleary, not.
Which is to say, what is the end goal? In my opinion, Obama is fine with the slaughter. He won’t miss one lick off his ice cream cone if the streets of Baghdad or the streets of Ramadi paved with the thrown away sacrifices of US troops not so long ago are covered in the blood of beheaded women and children. He won’t miss one round of golf. One fund raiser. One commencement address where he can demand that the Coast Guard fire their weapons into a hurricane, as Caligula would have wanted, to fight global warming.
Ultimately, if you view all of this from the “who benefits” perspective, it is inescapable to see it as anything other than a gift to Iran. The Iranians may be smarter than anyone ever gave them credit for. Their penchant for exploiting elements of the US Left’s grievancemongering and their plaintive cries of racism allowed one of their agents to svengali a Manchurian candidate into the White House in one of the greatest subterfuges in history. Forcing their largest enemy to provide them with billions of dollars in aid, allow them to obtain nuclear weapons, give them the gift of Iraq on a silver platter all while kneeling and groveling before the Ayatollah on the world stage for no reason whatsoever.
But criticizing the few patriots or insane mercenaries left to defend the gates as they’re being overrun by the barbarians Obama initially funded to fight in Syria? It is characteristic of the sharp stick in the eye that Obama likes to jab his enemies with.
And the nerve of criticizing those who have lost everything and have no support after being slaughtered like cattle by the non-Islamic Islamic State as being cowards from a Commander-in-Chief who never served anywhere outside of the Fightin’ Food Stamp recipients of south side Chicago is too much to bear.
More on Ramadi (seen at Flopping Aces) from Michael Totten in the peaceful time before Hussein Al-Obama came to power and consigned the kids on those pictures to a beheading because those ice cream cones aren’t going to lick themselves this Memorial Day.
I know there’s a lot of other pressing shit going on but since the NCAA is only concerned with guys pressing their dicks into other people’s shit being able to eat a wedding cake I thought I’d tool around on this topic.
To wit, Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s recent signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that ostensibly allows private business owners to not be forced to violate their faith in the wake of the federal government and their minions in the courts enthusiastically sodomizing businesses into closure for not celebrating the homosexual agenda.
Enter stage left. NCAA President Mark Emmert immediately threatens to take his balls and go to Fire Island or wherever:
The NCAA, which is holding the Final Four men’s basketball tournament in Indianapolis next week, also expressed concerns. NCAA President Mark Emmert said the Indianapolis-based group would examine “how it might affect future events as well as our workforce.”
By all means, please reevaluate where the NCAA’s modern day slavery will play or be based out of in the future. A man who governs a
But this, this is just a Golden Gate Bridge too far. The NCAA may not be able to blackmail the State of Indiana into accepting the recent unholy union of the Gaystapo and the federal government in their celebratory mazel tov as they stomp their matching jackboots on the throats of the Little Sisters of the Poor, Notre Dame, Hobby Lobby, etc. but there are a number of things that are in their control.
For example, how committed are the league’s players to taking it to the hole? I mean I know the NCAA screws their players over regularly but they could easily demand that their players sign a statement affirming their commitment to gay rights before being allowed to play.
A number of them appear to have tattoos of religions that do not condone homosexuality. Those should be removed as they are quite microaggressive.
March 31st is International Transgender Day of Visibility. Perhaps the men’s teams and the women’s teams can switch uniforms for that day to underscore the NCAA’s commitment to denying both science and Nature. The fact that they haven’t done this yet offends me.
Given that NCAA games can be located in every state of the union, some of which are bound to adopt similar laws to Indiana’s, this is a declaration of war that could start a competing league. Why should a state like Indiana have to continue to provide logistical support to this non-profit association? Does the NCAA build gymnasiums and football stadiums or do the taxpayers of the states that support these laws?
This isn’t a codification of state sponsored discrimination. It is a natural reaction to a federal government that is forcing private citizens to take part in ceremonies against their religious beliefs or be shut down and it is without end. If the federal government can force you to violate your religious beliefs, they can compel you to do anything.
Personally, I don’t think any of these issues are cut and dry. How is this different than a “No shirt, No Shoes, No Service” sign? A bar that says they reserve the right to refuse service to any customer?
Ideally, if someone does not want my business – say a restaurateur who puts a “no guns in my restaurant” sign to discourage concealed carriers – then I just don’t frequent that business. I can’t demand that the federal government sue him into providing private catering services to my NRA function at the gun range. The right to bear arms is a civil rights issue after all. This man, let’s call him Randy Rayburn, does not even have a religious exemption on this issue. His property rights should not supersede my civil rights.
But people can’t just be left alone. The Soup Nazis must be brought before Nuremburg. To proactively protect those who may want to buy a cake from someone who doesn’t want to bake them a cake and who base the decision to buy a cake solely on who doesn’t want to make it for them so they can sue them.
We must be supremely intolerant of the intolerant in the name of tolerance.
We’ve seen this play before. It happened last November in our own country. King Obama’s agenda took a drubbing at the polls and by hook-or-crook, mainly crook, he brazenly disregards the result in favor of his utterly predictable Because Fuck You That’s Why form of monarchy that has come to characterize his reign of error:
“President Obama did something extraordinary, perhaps unprecedented, in his post-election news conference Wednesday: He claimed a mandate on behalf of voters who didn’t vote,” Byron York reports.
Said Obama: “To everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too.”
And wouldn’t you know, all those people who didn’t vote and that he hears with crystal clarity agree with him all the way while he couldn’t give a shit less about those that did vote and clearly don’t agree with him.
Having backed the losing horse in the Israeli elections and after lying for months about not wanting to give the appearance of meddling in their elections, his current criticism of Netanyahu is an attempt to undermine the integrity and mandate of the government of our only democratic ally in the Middle East:
President Obama issued tough criticism of Benjamin Netanyahu, saying in an interview published Saturday that the Israeli prime minister’s campaign rhetoric “starts to erode the name of democracy.”
Unlike, say, Iran.
The Israeli people voting against suicide, which was the option Obama expended US taxpayer money in favor of, and that erodes democracy. This is coming from the petulant child whose signature legislation did not garner one bipartisan vote from the even the mushiest of middling Republicans and who nonchalantly has nullified two co-equal branches of our government through executive orders and demanding government agencies re-write congressionally legislated rules to enact his ideology.
Back to Israel, my prediction is that Obama will soon ignore what he will call an illegitimate Netanyahu led Israeli government and that he will seek to undermine them through a Herzog led, likeminded ultra-liberal shadow government that is operating as if it’s in exile.
As I pointed out previously, long before Samantha Powers was appointed as Obama’s ambassador to the UN, she posited the theory that either the military of the US or the UN should occupy Israel against its will and enforce a two state solution at the end of the barrel.
This is likely why she was chosen. In fact, why else would she have been chosen? This is why Obama is talking about backing Hamas in the UN Security Council and why he is using his loss to Netanyahu as the pretext to do what he has always wanted to do. Destroy Israel. To no fanfare, Obama backed out of a 40 year agreement to provide Israel with oil in the event of a war just this week.
A two state solution was a wonderful little pipe dream before Hamas took over the so-called Palestinian territory. Taking it seriously without recognizing how the facts on the ground have changed since then is a death threat to Israel’s continued existence.
For fuck’s sake, when are people going to call this what it is? We have a sleeper cell that has been activated in the White House. It is active and en route to its target. This is not a drill.
The John F’In Kerry Non-existent Legacy Tour / Unannounced Presidential Campaign continues to scale heights previously reserved for the underbelly of a snake:
“My heroes are people who dared to take on great challenges without knowing for certain what the outcome would be,” Kerry said in an address to the Atlantic Council on Thursday.
“Lincoln took risks, Gandhi took risks, Churchill took risks, Dr. King took risks, Mandela took risks, but that doesn’t mean that every risk-taker is a role model.”
Calling climate change “one of the biggest threats facing our planet today,” Kerry said it must be addressed head on, just like terrorism, extremism and nuclear proliferation.
“Gambling with the future of Earth itself when we know full well what the outcome would be is beyond reckless. It is just plain immoral,” he said. “And it is a risk that no one should take. We need to face reality. There is no planet B.”
As he flies to and fro in jet powered luxury. To Geneva. To the owner’s box at a New England Patriot’s football game. To his mansion. To his tax evading yacht.
When someone who has no God (other than himself and his wife’s money) and no morality claims that something is “immoral” then it’s time to clutch your wallet and load the gun to protect yourself since whatever pet issue it is that is the pretext for exerting power and control over your life has no top end in terms of what they are willing to take from you to Save The World. The only world at that!
What good are those shillings in your bank account? What good is “property” if there’s no world!?!? There’s no Planet B!
ISIS, al Qaeda, Iran, Russia, and China are not existential threats. They are very real threats. Threats that can be accounted for. A real enemy can be contained, neutralized, thwarted, or defeated.
But Global Warming, or as it is currently called “Climate Change” is an existential threat. It may exist. It may not. Man may contribute to it. Man may not. And John Kerry, and the Leftists who seek to redistribute the world’s wealth and imagine themselves as the Gandhis, Lincolns, and Jesus Christs on a personal Crusade to save us from ourselves are as much of a threat as ISIS and al Qaeda ever were. Every day they seek to do as much damage to the economy as flying jets into the World Trade Center in pursuit of an existential solution that may or may not stop Planet A from warming one degree a hundred years from now.
Unfortunately, their jet is called Air Force One.
Parting Shot: Usually, it’s good form to allow other people to offer such comparisons of one’s self. But check out the big thumb’s on this guy.
I know it’s a day old story but I did read Malcolm X in college:
Holder told POLITICO that between now and his departure, probably in early March when the Senate is expected to confirm Loretta Lynch as his successor, he will call for a lower standard of proof for civil rights crimes. Such a change would make it easier for the federal government to bring charges in the case of a future Ferguson or Trayvon Martin.
“I think some serious consideration needs to be given to the standard of proof that has to be met before federal involvement is appropriate, and that’s something that I am going to be talking about before I leave office,” Holder, 64, said.
Says the guy who once launched an armed takeover of an ROTC building while in college.
Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”
Making sense yet? When Eric X stormed the ROTC building, he renamed it the Malcolm X Lounge. Just harmless fun for Eric X, right? Not representative of the racist attitude that brought tears to Fuhrer Obama’s eyes at the thought of his retirement. A little more to it than that:
The ROTC headquarters was ultimately renamed the Malcolm X lounge as the SAAS organization demanded. It later became a hang-out spot for another future U.S. leader, Barack Obama, according to David Maraniss’ best-selling ”Barack Obama: The Story.”
So, you see the connection now. Eric X, while in the commission of a gun crime, storms an ROTC building on the Columbia campus and renames it the Malcolm X Lounge. Eventually, the leftwing school likes the sound of it and decides to name it that. Eventually, it becomes a “hang out spot” for Obama while he was at Columbia.
This “make it easier” standard for federal civil rights charges that he’s talking about is called “evidence”. You see, in Trayvon Martin and the Gentle Giant’s cases, there wasn’t any. Eric X wants to eliminate the need for any evidence to charge someone with a hate crime.
He has Eric X-Ray vision that can see racism in your heart and the prosecutorial power to arrest you for it.
“I would hope that I say this not to every African-American of his age but for every American, that you read The Autobiography of Malcolm X to see the transition that that man went through, from petty criminal to a person who was severely and negatively afflicted by race, to somebody who ultimately saw the humanity in all of us, and that would be a book I would recommend to everybody,” said Holder.
I’m loathe to point this out but Malcolm X’s “awakening” and how he “ultimately saw humanity in all of us” came about when he went on a hajj to Mecca and saw white people praying to Allah.
I’m also loathe to point out that Malcolm X’s assassination was ordered by Louis Farrakhan after he left the National of Islam and that Farrakhan is Barack Obama’s Hyde Park neighbor in Chicago. And like Bill Ayers, remains guilty as hell but free as a bird.
That link is from the old CBS interview where Farrakhan all but admitted his role in the assassination of Malcolm X to his widow Betty Shabazz.
By the way, there is no statute of limitation on murder and the deprivation of Malcolm X’s civil rights if you want to pursue it there Eric X. You lying, deceitful, divisive bigot.
Earlier today, Obama leaked his prebuttal to Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress into the absorbent pages of the New York Times:
Just four days before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint meeting of Congress, the Obama administration sought on Friday to refute the Israeli leader’s expected critique, arguing that he has failed to present a feasible alternative to American proposals for constraining Iran’s nuclear program.
A well placed military strike on Iran’s centrifuges is not a “feasible alternative”? This isn’t trying to clear the air, it’s a half-assed attempt to pollute it with his Obama’s intentionally unverifiable lies. How can you criticize what we won’t let you in on even though you most certainly are a stakeholder in this process?
This is the regime’s and the state run media’s same line of argument regarding Obamacare – you must accept the premise that something must be done about this right now and that a bad deal is better than doing nothing. It also tries to corral the opposition into “being part of the solution” to a problem that they didn’t create and want no part of to begin.
You hear it every time a moron Republican like Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush say that they want to “repeal and Replace” Obamacare. You lose me at anything after “repeal”.
As such, this line of argument should be dismissed out of hand and those that fall for it are immediately disqualified from seeking higher office.
In a briefing for reporters, senior administration officials contended that even an imperfect agreement that kept Iran’s nuclear efforts frozen for an extended period was preferable to a breakdown in talks that could allow the leadership in Tehran unfettered ability to produce enriched uranium and plutonium.
Which all presupposes that: a) Iran is going to agree to this agreement – which they haven’t and probably will not; b) that they are then going to follow the terms of an agreement – which they won’t because they are going at a breakneck pace to get a bomb as we speak; c) tie the hands of the US and our allies from placing any sanction against the Iranians while they continue to break every condition.
Just this week, it was released that the Iranian “negotiator” continues to take big dumps in John Kerry’s mouth in between holding mock military exercises where they bomb our ships. You know – our partners in this potemkin peace process.
To wit, the paid OFA trolls in the Washington Post, New York Times, Pollutico, and The Hill will attack anyone criticizing this idiocy as being in favor of an imminent invasion of Iran instead of just saying that we don’t have to give away the house to an enemy that negotiates in bad faith.
Remember when Obama wouldn’t meet with Netanyahu because it is so close to the Israeli elections? Yea, that was a lie. Remember, he doesn’t want to interfere in their election? Yea, that was a lie. Remember when he said he wasn’t notified that Netanyahu was coming beforehand? Yea, that was a lie.
I think I’m seeing a pattern here. Everything about this Iranian nuclear negotiation is lie because everything this administration does in secret is built on lies. Everything that is conducted in secret is done so because there would be public outrage if people saw the sausage of this non-existent agreement being made.
Writing Obamacare in secret. The State Department more time to review the Keystone Pipeline in secret. Writing FCC rules on Net Neutrality in secret. Investigating the IRS over targeting Tea Party groups and claiming all records were destroyed. Who is visiting the White House. Obama’s college transcripts kept sealed seven years into his term. Everything has always been a lie.
Per another unnamed lying liar in the administration filled with professional liars:
“We have made a substantial amount of progress,” the senior administration official acknowledged. “Ultimately, Iran has to make a very significant political decision to allow the flexibility to close this deal.”
I hate assumptions. A reporter might ask “What progress has been made?” But we know there is none. In Obamaworld, the fact that we are talking, and by “talking” I mean you screaming at me, is considered a success.
So let’s piss off Saudi Arabia and leave Israel threatened with destruction while we are screaming at them to not interfere with our freeing up billions to Iran to help them building a nuclear arsenal.
I guarantee you, Obama would give Iran some of our nuclear weapons if they would agree to this fantasy land accord. Because that is what Bill Richardson did with North Korea in the 90s. He gave them two nuclear reactors and then acted surprised when they let off a bomb. It’s “fair” to give Iran nuclear weapons because Israel has nukes and that’s not fair.
Plus, this is supposed to be a feather in John Kerry’s hat, a hat that he has to this day, as a success story for him to run for President again. This is his last chance and it’s Hitlery’s last chance.
Luckily, having both of the last two Secretariats of State on the same ticket while we see the fruits of their success burning brightly in the Middle East, smoldering after the Boston Marathon, the U.S. giving Hamas $400M to build terrorist tunnels into Gaza, having terrorist training camps in Libya post-Hilary’s War, the evacuation of the U.S. embassy in Yemen following Iran’s takeover of that country, Russia pressing the reset button several times into the backs of its opposition on the steps of the Kremlin while invading every neighbor they can afford to, etc., etc., etc., may convince Retarded America that Horseface McKetchup and Monica Lewinsky’s Ex-boyfriend’s Wife might not be the best this formerly great country has to offer.
It might. I don’t know. I have zero faith in the people in this country. When the schools were lost, the voters followed.

Well, it’s not really a throwback if you’re asshole-deep in it today! Let’s take a look, shall we?
First, COOTUS is using yet another Executive Order to backdoor gun control by banning ammunition.
“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”
Whatever it takes for the children, right boss?
Next, COOTUS’ puppets at the FCC have pushed through the innocuously named “net-neutrality rules” so that the layabouts at the Fed now have something to do – namely destroy the free flow of digital content, pile on more and more taxes and regulations and determine what content is given priority. I’ll let you guess how all that will work out.
Republican Commissioner Ajit Pai, who delivered some of the most scathing criticism of the plan Thursday, warned the policy represents a “monumental shift” to “government control of the Internet.”
Further, he accused the FCC of bending to the will of Obama, who last fall came out in favor of such a sweeping regulatory plan.
Pai said the FCC was reversing course from past positions for one reason: “President Obama told us to do so.”
He warned of a litany of negative consequences, intended or not, from the net neutrality plan. He said it allows rate regulation — and, ultimately, rates will go up and broadband service will slow.
Pai said that while the plan defers a decision on applying a service fee to Internet bills — much like is applied to phone bills — that surely will change.
Federal prosecutors in New York’s Brooklyn-based Eastern District pursued cases against secret, unnamed “John Doe” defendants 58 times since Loretta Lynch became head prosecutor in May 2010. Two of the 58 are terrorism cases.
Eastern District prosecutors have also sought permission to close the courtroom to the public for 11 different Doe cases during the same period, and judges have granted permission in at least 10 of the cases, as recently as February 12.
Critics are concerned the practice may infringe the Constitution’s guarantee of a public trial.
“While pseudonyms may be appropriate in exceptional cases, the courts should always opt for more transparent methods of protecting sensitive information when available,” said Lee Rowland, staff attorney of the ACLU Speech, Privacy & Technology Project. “The disproportionate number of John Doe cases in the Eastern District is certainly a cause for concern; complete secrecy about the parties in a case should never be a default option.”
Speaking of transparency, I remember when 3 billion was a lot of money. But it’s none of our damn business what the Feds do with our tax dollars.
The U.S. Treasury Department has rebuffed a request by House Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R- Wis., to explain $3 billion in payments that were made to health insurers even though Congress never authorized the spending through annual appropriations.
At issue are payments to insurers known as cost-sharing subsidies. These payments come about because President Obama’s healthcare law forces insurers to limit out-of-pocket costs for certain low income individuals by capping consumer expenses, such as deductibles and co-payments, in insurance policies. In exchange for capping these charges, insurers are supposed to receive compensation.
What’s tricky is that Congress never authorized any money to make such payments to insurers in its annual appropriations, but the Department of Health and Human Services, with the cooperation of the U.S. Treasury, made them anyway.
Last but certainly not least, COOTUS is threatening retribution against any ICE agents who dare to enforce our nation’s immigration laws.
“Not only are we going to have to win this legal fight.. but ultimately we’re still going to pass a law through Congress. The bottom line is I’m using all the legal power invested in me in order to solve this problem.”
“If somebody’s working for ICE … and they don’t follow the policy, there’s going to be consequences to it.”
This narcissistic bastard pledged six years ago that he was going to remake Amerikkka with our without the other allegedly co-equal branches of government and he’s making good on his promise. With cowards like McConnell, Boehner, Corker, Alexander, Graham and the rest of the GOP bending over and grabbing their ankles every time COOTUS says so, there’s not much hope for liberty going forward. This country does not even remotely resemble the one in which I was raised. I wish I could put my hat on backwards, watch the Oscars and suddenly become interested in the moronic celebrity worship that rules this culture, but, for some reason I still care. I need a drink.
Look, guys. I understand that no Democrats in the Senate are going to vote to impeach this traitor in the White House. But he’s daring the Republicans to. He is threatening federal workers to violate federal law or else they are going to be fired from their jobs or worse:
“Until we pass a law through Congress, the executive actions we’ve taken are not going to be permanent; they are temporary. There are going to be some jurisdictions and there may be individual ICE official or Border Control agent not paying attention to our new directives. But they’re going to be answerable to the head of Homeland Security because he’s been very clear about what our priorities will be,” Obama said, according to a partial transcript provided by the pool reporter.
“Not only are we going to have to win this legal fight.. but ultimately we’re still going to pass a law through Congress. The bottom line is I’m using all the legal power invested in me in order to solve this problem.”
“If somebody’s working for ICE … and they don’t follow the policy, there’s going to be consequences to it.”
He joked about using the IRS to audit his enemies too and we saw that he followed through on that threat. We are already so far beyond High Crimes and Misdemeanors at this point. Republicans laid their cards down before the flop and said they would never lift a finger against Obama.
Well, assholes – he heard you loud and clear and ran with it.
This would be a question to any hardened Leftist:
Imagine the CEO of a big corporation, in some big, gray corporation building, sitting behind his burlap sacks with dollar bill signs on them and chomping on his cigar sends out an e-mail ordering his Accounting, Tax, and Legal Departments to do whatever they can to evade paying their taxes or they are going to be fired.
He tells them, “Don’t worry. We’re lobbying to have the law changed. It’s not changed yet but our legislators have heard us and we’re not going to suffer because they haven’t done their job yet!”
You’d want him to be frogmarched out of that building wouldn’t you? Arrested. Prosecuted. And any underlings who were complicit more than likely.
Well, this is no different at all. He is violating his oath of office to faithfully execute the laws.
Implicit in his statement is that there is no law in place to justify what he is doing. He is making verbal commands. He is abolishing two co-equal branches of government by bypassing Congress to write a law, as if he would sign one a Republican Congress sent him anyway, and ignoring the Judiciary out of hand. A more strident judge and a different situation would be arresting him for contempt of court.
His minion at DHS is complicit in this criminal conspiracy. As is his minion at the inappropriately named Justice Department. Same thing with the FCC and so-called Net Neutrality.
This is the definition of a tyranny. It is unconstitutional. It is an impeachable offense. We are no longer a republic but a monarchy who has laws abolished with the wave of a hand.
I’d ask the Leftists what they think of this but this is what they have always wanted. A “benevolent” dictatorship as long as they get to be the dictator. And that’s why you all are fucking totalitarians and I am glad that I’ve treated every single one of you accordingly over the years. I never had any illusions about what deceitful pieces of shit you were and are.
For ICE, I know this economy sucks because the guy who is ordering you to violate the laws you swore to uphold is also the one responsible for that too. But a message has to be sent and there should be resignations in protest from the top on down and the governors of the border states should call out the National Guard. It should not be ICE’s position to be forced between violating a federal court’s ruling or fear of retribution from an out of control dictator making up rules as he goes along. You are not obliged to follow an order asking you to break the law. This is the same law you’d enforce to the letter for a German, French, Swedish, or Chinese immigrant. This is a request from a President to violate equal protection laws in favor of one race of people.
How about No Speeding Tickets for Whites Day? Extra Ice Cream Toppings for Gays Day. No Immigration Laws for Hispanics Day…wait, we’ve already got that one.
This is more than just Obama pandering to what he hopes will be an illegal immigrant voting base that will turn this country into a third world shithole with a new permanent underclass he can buy off with food stamps. He has officially sparked a constitutional crisis on purpose and dared Republicans do anything about it.
When the history books write about the sparks that led to the Second Civil War, this is one of those moments. And history will be especially unkind to the Mitch McConnells and John Boehner who sat on their hands as these tyrannies went unanswered. The Courts cannot save you when their rulings will not be followed.
…Shoving all those Pinocchios where the sun doesn’t shine.
Does former Mayor Giuliani not listen to Obama’s speeches? The president has consistently expressed love of country and extolled the virtues of the United States in many speeches, while also at times acknowledging what he considered flaws and mistakes made in the past (what critics have labeled “an apology tour”).
Here are a few examples from Obama:
This is the WaPo’s “fact checker” getting all animated at Rudy Giuliani’s observation that Obama is just not that into the whole American Experience thing.
I’ll save the perfunctory recitations of “love of country” Kessler maintains as evidence that Obama is, in fact, so in love with America that we need to take out a restraining order against him. Usually in the context of “only in a country like this could a great guy like me become President” or the usual county fair, we can do anything if we work as A Collective.
Giuliani must have muted the sound whenever Obama spoke. He certainly has every right to his opinion about the tenor of the president’s remarks. But he has no business claiming something that is so factually incorrect – or easily disproved. He earns four Pinocchios.
Giuliani’s catching hell because he is directly over the target.
The issue isn’t whether Obama has ever said he loves this country. He clearly has. He never would get elected saying that he despises his country. The issue is that he’s bald-faced liar because every action he takes is through the prism of American being the force for ill in the world, conceived in slavery, that everything we have achieved was stolen from someone else, and that we need to be taken down a notch or ten. We need to get off our high horse. A horse that we probably stole from an Indian after we gave him blankets filled with smallpox.
When your impassioned defense of your, not mine, your President’s patriotism comes two or three days after he names a fucking Japanese Internment Camp as a national monument, there is a tremendous disconnect in attacking the guy whose eyes are working and being obtuse and pretending to not see his point.
Did you ever think you’d see the day that the atheistic Communists who constitute the majority of the Democrat Party would demand that you recognize the inherent decency of having a patriotic Christian President?
It’s only because he’s not one but still – telling.
Perhaps a meeting on “violent extremists” where only Moslems are invited to be stroked and fed dates by the Mooch in her finest shower curtains will rebut the dog whistles you hear when Christians are beheaded en masse and/or insufficiently Islamic Muslims are burnt alive for daring to defend themselves against Those That Shall Not Be Named.
Political correctness demands that we not just tolerate but embrace every cross-dressing, grievance mongering, nutbar idea that comes down the pike. Except for the truth. If that ever got it then it might derail the whole thing. And that’s what has made this weekend so peculiar. This new Evangelical McCarthyism of the Left. Have you now, or have you ever questioned that Barack Hussein Obama might not be more Christian than Christ crucified?
Sure he was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia, blames Christians for the Crusades, hasn’t gone to church in seven years and when he did before it was to the service of a racist bigot who hates this country in order to get votes in Chicago- but to say that he’s not a Christian? It’s so far beyond the pale.
I say judge a man by his actions. How much does he give to charity? Tut-tut – your tax dollars to special interests don’t count. Does he bear false witness about his enemies? Is it possible for him to love his neighbor as much as he loves himself? Is he a man of peace or a divisive bigot who lives to sow animosity between those neighbors and a coveting of their belongings? Whicn 10 Commandment has Obama not broken?
Is he standing between the torches and pitchforks or is he the guy who organized the mob and threw gas on the fires? It’s pretty clear which camp Ayatollah Obama – Arbiter or What Is and What Ain’t officially Islam is.
Before one more goddamn question get’s asked of Scott Walker about Obama’s Christian faith, I want just a couple of questions asked of Obama:
Is Jesus Christ your one and only Lord and Saviour? That all others are false and that there is no way to heaven except through him? That he died and was resurrected from the dead?
If you can’t answer those questions then you are not a Christian. And Obama cannot answer those questions in the affirmative because he is not one.
Required Reading: Kevin Williamson’s piece at NRO and, of course, Mark Steyn’s take on what Obama is doing to the Middle East on purpose.
Ace even has a good post up about the manufactured outrage of the Jonathan Chaits of the world and their phony appeals to a leftwing patriotism that doesn’t, didn’t, and never will exist.
All these people calling shit like it is. I’m kind of glad I got up this morning.
The NY Post has an outstanding piece by Kyle Smith pissing on the media parade for Jon Stewart’s not-a-moment-too-soon exit from the Daily Show:
Stewart is a journalist: an irresponsible and unprofessional one.
He is especially beloved by others in the journo game. (For every 100 viewers, he generated about 10 fawning profiles in the slicks, all of them saying the same thing: The jester tells the truth!).
Any standard liberal publication was as likely to contain an unflattering thought about Stewart as L’Osservatore Romano is to run a hit piece on the pope.
The hacks have a special love for Stewart because he’s their id. They don’t just think he’s funny, they thrill to his every sarcastic quip. They wish they could get away with being so one-sided, snarky and dismissive.
And that couldn’t be more true. Though, in fairness, CNN and MSNBC have ritually hoisted the pole and populate the three ring Old Media circus with lesser bozos like Don Lemon, Ashleigh Banfield, Piers Morgan, Ronan Farrow to unintended comedic effect.
Back to Stewart, there is no greater dissembling of his clown shoes and red rubber nose than this Bill Whittle take down of his assertion that the atom bomb did not need to be dropped on Japan to end World War II. If you watch anything today let it be that. Whittle should have done the humanitarian thing and dropped leaflets over Comedy Central before laying waste to Stewart’s sanctimonious misinformation in an attempt to cast a U.S. victory in WWII as being based on a war crime. It should be mandatory viewing in any journalism class, US history class, and tattooed on Stewart’s tombstone when he chokes to death on his lack of success in a post-Daily Show world.
Brian Williams has become a joke for telling lies, but Jon Stewart is a liar for the way he told jokes.
The ATF is going to have to investigate Kyle Smith for dropping all that Kaboom without a federal license.
Lost in the shuffle of today’s non-stop nontroversy over vaccinating kids was the barbaric snuff video of ISIS’s AG Eric Holder setting a ratings agency on fire as example to others.
That is how much Eric Holder fined Standard & Poor’s for making his boss look bad when they downgraded the country’s credit rating in 2011.
S&P on Tuesday agreed to pay $1.5 billion to resolve litigation alleging it knowingly issued rosy grades of risky mortgage bonds before the crisis. As part of the deal, the government backed off demands that S&P admit to violating laws, reducing the firm’s exposure to future lawsuits.
Now, if we could only figure out who legislated that banks be forced make risky mortgages in the first place because 0% down payments are necessary for unqualified applicants to own homes they can’t afford or else racism.
Not content to extort fourteen hundred million dollars out of a mere rating agency, Holder also demanded as part of the settlement that S&P retract claims that his suit was filed in retaliation for the country’s credit downgrade:
Much of the fighting related to S&P’s allegation that the Justice Department sued in retaliation for the agency’s downgrade of U.S. government debt in 2011. S&P agreed to retract that charge as part of the deal. Attorney General Eric Holder said the retraction was important to him and the Justice Department.
Move over Al and Je$$e, there’s a new shakedown artist in town.
So that settlement condition was also a retaliation. Like the $16,000,000,000.00 extortion of Bank of America, these funds will eventually be distributed to newly reconstituted ACORN groups, La Raza, and a host of other Obama special interests.
