Feminist-founder Has Change of Heart, Turns Pro-Life, Asks for Forgiveness

“I have repented of having had an abortion and today I ask for forgiveness.”

pro-life feminist change of heart femen brazil brasil sara winter feminism controversy abortion

Ultra-feminist founder of Femen Brazil recently had a change of heart. Not only has she denounced the modern feminism movement, but she’s now a pro-life advocate. What caused this sudden one-eighty? Giving birth. “Sara Winter” aborted her first child. Giving birth to her second caused the former topless protestor to reconsider her long-held feminist views.

Lifesite News has the story:

Sara Fernanda Giromin first made herself known to Brazil and to the world under the alias “Sara Winter” in 2012, when she became the founding member of Femen Brazil, and led a trio of girls in a number of topless protests that garnered much media attention. However, only three years later, the young activist has done an about-face and has declared war on feminism and abortion, and is apologizing to Christians for her offensive behavior. She has also published a short book detailing the abuse and disappointment she suffered at the hands of fellow feminists.

Giromin regrets terminating her first pregnancy and now implores those considering abortion to reconsider.

“I have repented of having had an abortion and today I ask for forgiveness,” wrote Giromin. “Yesterday marked one month after the birth of my baby and my life has taken on a new meaning. I’m writing this while he sleeps serenely on my lap. It is the greatest sensation in the world.”

“Please, women who are desperate to abort, think carefully about it. I was very sorry I did it. I don’t want the same for you,” she added.I AM A PERSON with Poem

But Giromin’s about-face isn’t limited to abortion. She’s now speaking out against the feminist movement referring to it as a corrupt religious “sect.”

In the months that have followed, Giromin has revealed to her readership her disillusionment with feminism and gender ideology, and has repudiated her “bisexual” orientation. She has also expressed remorse for having offended Christians in January of 2014, when she engaged in a well publicized same-sex kiss with another seminude girl with a cross in the background, in front of the Church of Our Lady of Candelária in Rio de Janeiro. The photo of the two had become iconic in Brazil of homosexual contempt for Christianity.

“Asking for forgiveness is certainly not an easy thing to do,” said Giromin in a YouTube video entitled “I ask Christians for forgiveness for feminist protest.” “We went way too far and ended up offending many religious and non-religious people,” she added, recognizing the stunt as a form of “blasphemy.” She adds that she is making progress in her own spiritual life, although the exact nature of her current beliefs remains unclear.

Although she left Femen in 2013 after denouncing it as a “business,” she had continued her bare-chested protests as the leader of a new feminist group comprised of both men and women, called “Bastardxs,” (allowing for both the masculine and feminine forms of the word “Bastards” in Portuguese). She has now made it clear that she regards herself as having no affiliation with feminism at all, repudiating the movement as a religious “sect” that uses women as objects, promotes lesbianism, and covers up pedophilia in its ranks.

“For the feminist sect women are not the inspiration, they are prime matter in the worst sense of the term. They are convenient objects useful for the purpose of inflaming hatred against the Christian religion, hatred against men, hatred against the beauty of women, hatred against the equilibrium of families. That’s what feminism is, and I can guarantee it is like that because I was on the inside!”

I saw the feminist movement cover up for PEDOPHILES,” writes Giromin. “I saw the feminist movement PERSECUTE WOMEN … I am a witness to the fact that today in the feminist movement women are not of any importance but serve as fuel for the fires of hatred that the feminist sect cannot allow to die.”

Giromin says that she felt pressured by the feminist movement to declare herself “bisexual” so that she could receive maximum respect. “Lesbian and bisexual women have much more voice and respect within the movement, so in the search for recognition of my struggle, with each day that passed, I deconstructed my heterosexuality and was substituting it with an artificial bisexuality.” Upon leaving feminism, Giromin ceased to regard herself as a “bisexual” and has also rejected gender ideology, a sine qua non of social acceptance in the feminist movement.

In her new book “Bitch, no! Seven times I was betrayed by Feminism” (Vadia não! Sete vezes que fui traída pelo feminismo), Giromin writes that she was repeatedly pushed to do drugs, to engage in sex with strangers, and was even molested by a lesbian, all at the hands of feminists who claimed to be fighting for women’s equality. She also recounts that when she once confided in a feminist academic that she was involved in prostitution while still a teen, she was devastated to find that the woman affirmed her behavior and did nothing to offer her a way out. She notes that one of the few times she received affection, kindness, and understanding from a female friend, it was from an older, conservative “anti-feminist,” who treated her like a daughter.

There is always hope.

TEXAS OPEN CARRY STARTS JAN. 1: Here’s 10 Pics Liberals, Thugs and Terrorists Will Soon Come To Hate


waving flagPublished on December 31, 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://news.clashdaily.com/2015/12/texas-open-carry-starts-jan-1-heres-10-pics-liberals-thugs-and-terrorists-will-soon-come-to-hate

On Jan, 1st, 2016, Texas will become the 45th state to allow some form of “OPEN CARRY” of handguns. This means that Texas is changing its gun license from a CONCEALED HANDGUN LICENSE (“CHL”); to a LICENSE TO CARRY (“LTC”).

Many “uninformed citizens” are going to be caught off-guard next week if and when they start seeing people openly wearing handguns in public! Police officials don’t really expect to start seeing guns everywhere, but on Jan. 1st, some citizens are going to strap on their gun and go to Walmart, just because they CAN! Let’s face it, here in Texas some people think wearing their handgun in public… is a fashion statement!

Whether you’ve had your “CHL” for years, or just a citizen wondering what all the “hype” is about; you may find something useful in the information that follows. I’m not an expert, and this is not legal information; it’s just the information as I understand it. If we disagree, or if something isn’t clear, we’ll contact the DPPD for clarification!

EXACTLY…. WHAT IS CHANGING?

– The name is changing from Concealed Handgun License or “CHL”; to License to Carry, or “LTC”.

– Beginning January 1st, citizens all across the State of Texas may begin seeing people prominently and lawfully wearing handguns… outside their clothing.

– All current “CHL” holders will be “grandfathered” into the new “LTC” program. If you already have a valid “CHL” there is absolutely nothing you need to do. The “CHL” you are holding will now be referred to as a “LTC” or License to Carry. – – Beginning Jan. 1st, Texas will no longer issue new (or renewal) “CHL’s”; but begin issuing the new “LTC”, or License to Carry.

– The biggest change is that “licensed” gun owners are no longer required to hide or “conceal” the weapon they are carrying, but now have the option to carry that weapon openly (outside their clothing) or continue to carry in a concealed manner. If they choose to “open carry”, the law states that their weapon MUST BE IN A HOLSTER…worn on the shoulder or belt.

WHAT IS NOT CHANGING?

– The basic “CHL or LTC” laws, rules and regulations are not changing. Citizens still need a license to carry a handgun (openly or concealed) in the State of Texas. Laws concerning license eligibility, who can legally carry and where it is legal to carry have not changed. REMEMBER: This new law ONLY applies to handguns and to valid handgun license holders.

– ATTENTION: ALL VALID TEXAS HANDGUN LICENSE HOLDERS: Everywhere you can legally concealed carry now, you will be able to open carry after Jan. 1, 2016.

*It is already legal to openly display long-guns, shotguns and rifles in public; as long as it is done in a non-threatening or alarming manner. No license or permit is required.

SOME BASIC FIREARM LAWS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS

In Texas, it is generally illegal to carry a handgun outside of a person’s own premises*, however, there are several places where a person may possess a handgun legally without a license. *Assuming the person is legally allowed to possess a weapon.

INSTANCES WHERE NO LICENSE IS REQUIRED:

– A person who is legally allowed to possess a weapon does not need a license to carry a handgun at their residence.

– A person who is legally allowed to possess a weapon does not need a license to carry a handgun in their vehicle or boat. *The handgun can be loaded or unloaded, but must be concealed at all times.

– If the person has a valid “LTC”, the person may “open carry” in the vehicle if the handgun is in a shoulder holster or holster attached to the belt.

– A person who is legally allowed to possess a weapon does not need a license to carry a handgun when engaging in lawful fishing, hunting, or other sporting activity on the immediate premises where the activity is conducted, or is en route between the premises and the persons’ residence or motor vehicle, if the firearm is a type commonly used in the activity.

*Remember: * A person who is legally allowed to possess a weapon does not need a license to carry long-guns, shotguns and rifles in public; as long as it is done in a non-threatening or alarming manner.

ABSOLUTELY NO GUNS ALLOWED….

Under Texas Law… every handgun license holder knows that there are universally designated places where handguns are never allowed.

License holders may never carry guns onto the premises of schools, school-related functions (i.e. football games), courtrooms, secure areas of airports, polling places, and post offices. It is also illegal to carry into any business that receives at least 51 percent of it’s revenue from alcohol sales; as designated by a proper “51% sign at each entrance.

In most cases, parking lots, sidewalks and driveways are not included in the definition of “premises.”

Here are some pictures of people you will likely see everyday in Texas, starting on January 1st: (Facebook)

Leftist Website Breaks “Islamophobia” Story, Quickly KILLS It When They Learn Details


Written by Wes Walker on December 31, 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://news.clashdaily.com/2015/12/leftist-website-breaks-islamophobia-story-quickly-kills-it-when-they-learn-details

You might be forgiven if you are unfamiliar with Salon, many people are. They’re one of the Uber-Left op-ed sites that — by comparison — make Huffpo look like an impartial news source. As I write this, they are featuring stories celebrating Michael Moore [and how he exploded the Right’s biggest lie]. Or prominent Atheist Sam Harris and his “detestable crusade” against Islam. News flash, Harris hates ALL religion. He’s merely being consistent, unlike Salon who only slanders Christianity. Throw in a few articles attacking traditional perceptions of Reagan and Lincoln and you have a good sense of where they are coming from.

Most importantly, however. They are our moral superiors — at least, in their own minds. Remember, the Right isn’t ever just “wrong” it is necessary to insist that we are actually evil. This is important to their rhetoric. Enough background — on with the story.

Well, these supposed paragons of virtue reported an arson incident on a Mosque. This is the kind of story they would happily get behind. It paints America as generally mean-spirited and bigoted. It unflinchingly portrays the darlings of the day (currently Islam) as the “poor victim”.

They reported the story on Wednesday. It described an attack on Christmas Day, shortly after Friday prayers at the Islamic Center of Houston. In an article relating the arrest of suspect Gary Moore, Salon writer Ben Norton described this attack as Islamophobic. But that was a mistake. A serious one.

Why is the conclusion of it being hate-based such a big mistake? Well, could it be that the author was guilty of “profiling”? Seeing the accused did not use a Middle-Eastern name, might he have just assumed a hatred of Islam?

But really, what would stop him? It is a time-worn Leftist tactic to slander people you have identified as “the enemy”. And disproving an accusation of Islamophobia would usually be tricky. 

Usually, this smear tactic is reserved for Americans with traditional views, who lean right-of-center on political issues, hold to old-school religious beliefs, or who traditional views of marriage. With an Anglo name like Gary Moore, the racist-hater card might have seemed a slam dunk.

Except for one little detail. Gary Moore is not only Muslim himself, he is a MEMBER of that same Islamic Center who had prayed their earlier that SAME DAY. (Even police say the motive is currently unknown.)

No problem, right? Just an honest mistake? Like any serious publication, the Editor-in-Chief has posted a correction notice? I mean, even the New York Times does that when it admits to being wrong. That’s what they did, right?

Actually, no. They nuked the story and pretended it never happened. All that remains is a lovely 404 error. Will Gary Moore raise it as an issue? Will he complain about being slandered as “Islamophobic” when he is a Muslim himself? Will the public demand a correction notice?

Are we going to call BS when they throw around such labels in the future, like the Boy Who Cried Wolf, now that The Public knows who and what Salon really is?

Or, more likely, will they go back finger-wagging and complaining about the supposed “Biggest Lies” on the Right?  You know, the kind those “Professional Truth-Tellers” like Michael Moore are so famously, uh, “exploding”.

One last thing to ponder as you go. When all was said and done, there still was a real arson that actually did burn down a center of religious worship. It really was still a news story. But they pulled it. Are we now to understand that the suffering of those who had their building torched is only newsworthy if it can be used as a cudgel against Salon’s political foes?

Moral superiority, indeed.

Number ONE Socialism in America Story: “Something Sickening Was Just Done To Christian Bakers Who Refused To Make Lesbian Wedding Cake”


Reported by Melody Dareing December 30, 2015

Tyranney AlertIt was not enough for bakery shop owners Melissa and Aaron Klein to pay more than $136,000 fine to the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries. The state has now wiped out all cash from all their bank accounts too – and did it right before Christmas.

Melissa Klein said was checking on their three bank accounts when she found out the government took every penny. The money was even taken from a separate account the couple uses to keep their church tithe. The amount totaled around $7,000.

“It was like my breath was taken away,” Melissa Klein said in a telephone interview. “I panicked. Everything was gone.”

The couple, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, faced the wrath of the state in 2013 after they would not bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. While the Kleins will bake cakes for homosexuals for other events, like birthdays, Aaron Klein told the couple they could not support a lesbian commitment ceremony because of their Christian beliefs about marriage. Same-sex marriage was not yet legal in Oregon at the time. The couple held a commitment ceremony in June 2013 and were legally married on May 23, 2014, four days after same-sex marriage was legalized in Oregon.

Even though same-sex marriage was not yet legal in the state, the Kleins were hauled before the bureau on discrimination claims under the state’s public accommodations law. The government then ordered them to pay $136,927.07 judgment for causing “emotional suffering.” They paid it in full to avoid a state-mandated nine percent interest penalty, according to their attorney. The money was given to the Kleins through donations.

“The least expensive option to stay in compliance with the law was to pay the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries funds that will be kept in a separate account until they prevail in their court appeal,” said attorney Tyler Smith in a prepared statement regarding the case.

The couple had to shutter their retail shop and now work out of their home. They were also slapped with a gag order prohibiting them from speaking publicly about their decision to refuse baking a wedding cake for same-sex marriages.

Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian said in a 2013 interview that he was not trying to shut Sweet Cakes by Melissa down. He wanted them to change their views. “The goal is never to shut down a business. The goal is to rehabilitate.”Picture2

pure socialismStill, closing the business and issuing a gag order was not enough for Avakian, who actively supports gay rights in his social media posts and public comments. He authorized the move to wipe out the Kleins’ bank accounts, even the one meant for the church.

“We had three accounts,” Mrs. Klein said. “I have one account that’s labeled, ‘God’s money’ – our tithing. They just took it.”

The Kleins’ case is on appeal and Smith said they would continue to fight it even if it means taking it to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Aaron and Melissa will continue to work to ensure that every American has the First Amendment right to express their faith-based beliefs, and to conduct their daily affairs according to their conscience,” Smith said.

Ann Coulter Letter: “The New York Times’ Featured Syrian Refugee of The Week”


waving flagCommentary by  Ann Coulter  | 

URL of the original posting site: http://humanevents.com/2015/12/30/the-new-york-times-featured-syrian-refugee-of-the-week/?utm_source=coulterdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl

The New York Times' Featured Syrian Refugee of The Week

On Christmas Day — three weeks after the son of a Pakistani immigrant and his Pakistani immigrant bride murdered 14 people in San Bernardino, California — The New York Times told the heartwarming story of “Kamal,” a Syrian refugee who resettled into Houston, Texas, earlier this year and immediately started shopping at Walmart.

The Times considers it tacky when actual Americans go to Walmart, but Muslim immigrants seem to live there, buying nothing but American flags and Christmas trees. 

Thus, we’re told Kamal has an outdoor Christmas tree from Walmart, and we find him carrying two trays of cupcakes from Kroger’s for his children’s elementary school holiday party.

Kamal — like the Times — was “angered” by Texans’ reluctance to accept more Syrian refugees. He says of Americans: “Why did you bring me here and why then you let the people hate us?”

We brought you here, Kamal, because the Democrats need voters and the rich need cheap servants.

As for letting “the people” hate refugees, they don’t, but if they did they’d have a right to do so. It goes back to that whole thing with John Locke, John Milton and the English Bill of Rights in 1689. (Of course, in Syria, it’s always the year 400, so this is merely pedagogical.)

The reasons Americans might hate Muslims — although, again, they don’t — include: San Bernardino, the Boston Marathon, Fort Hood, the Chattanooga military recruiting center, 9/11 and the 1993 World Trade Center attacks, and on and on and on.

The Times article itself provides additional clues as to why Texans might not want more Syrian refugees.

According to the Times:

– Kamal refused to let the Times use his last name “because he feared for the safety of his relatives in Syria.”

– In 2011, Kamal was arrested and imprisoned by the Syrian military for protesting against the government. Over the next 14 months, he says, he was tortured with electric shocks and beatings — and the removal of his kidney “as a punishment.”

– He says he didn’t want to relocate to another part of Syria because the Syrians there would “slaughter” him and his family because he drinks alcohol and his wife doesn’t always wear a hijab.

But he’s baffled that Texans are not yelping with joy at the prospect of bringing another 100,000 Syrians here. Why would any country not jump at the chance to admit masses of people who administer electric shocks and remove organs as punishment for protesting the government? We must be crazy!

If anyone hates Syrians, it’s Kamal. He left his home to get 7,000 miles away from Syrians — whom he now wants to bring to the U.S.

By contrast, these are the horrors Kamal has suffered at the hands of Texans, which he shared with the Times: The Texas agriculture commissioner posted pictures of refugees and rattlesnakes on Facebook with the caption: “Can you tell me which of these rattlers won’t bite you?”

Well, can you? Kamal can’t. He voted with his feet by getting the hell out of his entire country, which — again — he now wants to import to Texas, at least according to the Times.

I’m going to give Kamal the benefit of the doubt. (The guy does have a Christmas tree.) Maybe it’s the Ramadan spirit, but I don’t think he does want any more Syrian refugees. Maybe Kamal is only worried about Texans suspecting him, in which case, he ought to be “angered” by the Muslim immigrants who do things that create suspicion, and the U.S. government that insists on bringing in hundreds of thousands more like them.Do you want

Only in fiscal years 2009 to 2013, the Obama administration has imported 680,000 immigrants from Muslim-majority countries. In that same time period, the government accepted approximately 12 immigrants from the British Isles.

The media’s persistent attempts to paint sympathetic portraits of the Third-Worlders pouring into America are always exercises in self-contradiction.

On one hand, the Times loves to provide lavishly detailed accounts of the atrocities committed on a daily basis in backward countries in order to pull at readers’ heartstrings. But then they’re shocked when readers don’t respond to descriptions of these medieval cultures by saying, What this country needs is more electric shock torture and organ harvesting of prisoners. How about we bring in some more Syrians?

The day after the Times’ story about Kamal and his trays of cupcakes and rafts of grievances, the paper ran a front-page story about the “flawed justice” — that was in the title — involving a homicidal mob in Afghanistan.

First, the good news: No police officers shot any unarmed black teens. Now, the bad news: A 27-year-old woman, Farkhunda Malikzada, was beaten to death by an enraged mob in Kabul after being falsely accused of burning a Koran.

The Times reports:

“In the videos, Farkhunda seems at first to be screaming in pain from the kicks, but then her body convulses under the blows, and soon she stops moving at all. Even when the mob pulls her into the street and gets a car to run over her, and she is dragged 300 feet, the police stand by.

“By then, she was little more than a clothed mass of blood and bones. Yet still more people came to beat her. One of the most fervent was a young man, Mohammad Yaqoub, who worked at an eyeglasses shop. He heard the crowd as Farkhunda was dragged behind the car and rushed out, eager to join.”

Let’s get Yaqoub here. He can work at Lens Crafters!

But the Times is scratching its head, incredulous that Americans aren’t leaping with ecstasy at the government’s plan to continue dumping these sick, sadistic cultures on us.

Democrats think Christians bigger threat than Muslims

of domenstic terroristEditor’s Note: This is another in a series of reports on the polling by Clout Research, a national opinion research firm in Columbus, Ohio, for WND.com.

A new poll reveals that 45 percent of the Democrats who responded believe that Christians are a greater threat to America than Muslims. No shock that 72 percent of atheists agree.

But the surprise is that 18 percent of those who consider themselves ” very conservative” agree.

As do 29 percent of Protestants.

And 23 percent of Catholics.

Interestingly, the sample of Muslims was very small, but 100 percent said it is Muslims who are the greater danger.

The results are from a new WND/Clout poll by Clout Research, a national opinion research firm in Columbus, Ohio. The telephone survey of registered voters was taken Dec. 18-27, except for the holiday, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.35 percentage points.

Trust the government? Maybe you shouldn’t. Read the details in “Lies the Government Told You,” by Judge Andrew Napolitano.

Poll chief Fritz Wenzel said, “A surprising finding in the survey shows that one in three respondents said they believe Christians pose a greater threat to America than do Muslims. Among Democrats, 45 percent said Christians are more dangerous than are Muslims, while 36 percent of political independents said the same. Among Republicans, 20 percent said Christians are the greater threat.”Hate Me hate you

Men Love Darkness because they knowHe said the opinions “may well have to do with the Colorado Springs shootings at the Planned Parenthood office there that resulted in three deaths. That shooting was carried out by a deranged man who opposed abortion. His religious affiliation is unclear, but many may have extrapolated that he must be a Christian conservative. This conclusion is bolstered by the fact  that women were more likely than men to name Christians as a bigger threat than Muslims – but that said, still 63 percent of all women still said Muslims are the greater threat.”

His analysis continued, “The more conservative the respondent, the more likely they were to identify Muslims as the greater threat to America.”Islam is NOT

The survey included very few Muslims, but they all said Muslims were the greater threat to the country. Among Protestants, 29 percent said Christians were the greater threat, while 72 percent of Atheists said Christians were a greater threat, he noted.

“A majority of blacks said Christians were the greater threat, but all other races said Muslims were the greatest threat to America,” he said.

The question asked was simple: “Which do you believe pose the greatest threat to America – Muslims or Christians?”

Fifty-five percent of Democrats, 80 percent of the GOP and 64 percent of the independents identified Muslims.

Among those who identify themselves as liberal, it was approaching 50 percent that believe Christians are the greater danger.

Among whites, 67 percent identified Muslims, among Hispanics, 90 percent identified Muslims and among Asians, 82 percent identified Muslims. It was blacks, who by a 55-45 majority, said Christians are a bigger threat.

California Gun Law Will Let Police Confiscate Legally-Owned Weapons


waving flagReported by Blake Neff, Reporter, 12/29/2015

CALIFORNIA VOTER ALERT

A new California law scheduled to take effect Friday will allow the police to seize private, legally-owned weapons for up to three weeks without charges or allowing the citizen to contest the seizure. AB1014 was passed last year in the wake of 2014’s Isla Vista shooting, where teenager Elliot Rodger went on a rampage near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara, killing six people along with himself.

Rodger’s parents had reported him to the police prior to the shooting, concerned about his mental health and rants he posted online. But after meeting with Rodger, police decided he wasn’t a criminal risk, and consequently didn’t search his apartment, where he was stockpiling weapons and ammunition.

The new law is intended to stop such a situation from re-occurring. Under the law, a judge has the power to grant a restraining order telling police to seize a person’s guns, based solely on accounts from family members or police that the person is poses an imminent danger to others. The restraining order can be granted without the affected person knowing it exists or being allowed time to contest it.Picture2

Under the law, the factors a judge can consider in granting the restraining order include not only threats of violence, but also prior felony arrests (even without a conviction), evidence of alcohol abuse, and even the simple act of recently purchasing a gun or ammunition.

Once granted, police can use the restraining order to confiscate all of a person’s guns and ammunition, and the person is also barred from buying or possessing guns and ammo for the duration of the order. A full court hearing must then be heard within three weeks. At that hearing, a judge will be able to extend the restraining order for an entire year.Tyranney Alert

“The law gives us a vehicle to cause the person to surrender their weapons, to have a time out, if you will,” Los Angeles Police Department Assistant Chief Michael Moore told Southern California Public Radio. “It allows further examination of the person’s mental state.”Lies Lies and More Lies

The law expands on California gun laws that are already some of the country’s toughest. Police already have the power to seize a person’s guns if a licensed therapist informs them that the person’s mental state makes them a danger to themselves or others. pure socialism

Unsurprisingly, pro-gun organizations such as the National Rifle Association (NRA) have strongly opposed the law since it was first proposed. The NRA Institute for Legislative Action, the group’s lobbying arm, has already signaled its willingness to use the courts to battle the law. Noting that the law makes it a misdemeanor to file a frivolous request for one of the new restraining orders, the group has encouraged anybody who feels unjustly targeted to contact their attorneys.

Charles Hurt: Mainstream Media Underwent ’12 Stages of Denial,’ Now Seeing The Rise of Donald Trump


by Alex Swoyer 30 Dec 2015 Washington, DC

“The guy is steamrolling through a lot of places all over the country,” he added, “and they’re mad at Trump!”

Hurt said that thousands of pages of laws were signed by President Obama, but “none of it went to address the shocking problems we are facing right now in terms of debt, in terms of the threats we face from ISIS and their sympathizers.”

“People are beyond fed up,” he added. Hurt said Americans are past the Tea Party movement. “We’re past that now…they want to torch the place and start over again.”Picture13

He said people are justifiably angry.

“I’m angry. I can’t believe the way things have gotten so twisted around in this country,” not working is rewarded by this government, while hard work is punished. “It’s a really screwed up thing.”

“They’re desperate for somebody…who will address the problems honestly and forthrightly and in plain language and sometimes harsh language and that’s what Donald Trump does,” Hurt added.

“It’s been something that’s been percolating a long time,” Hurt told guest host Alex Marlow, in for Stephen K. Bannon, about the rise of the anti-establishment. “It’s been sort of slowly accumulating…at some point it was going to have to break.”

Hurt said one of the big issues that has broken the establishment was the left’s control of the media.

“It was a massive disservice,” Hurt said of the mainstream media controlling the narrative. Now with the internet, Hurt says “all of that stuff gets broken down…normal sane people actually have a say.”

“The right is not a monolithic organization that is controlling everything. It’s a loud disaggregation of voices and that’s what we see,” Hurt said, adding that the left is “nothing if not monolithic.”no more rinos

“Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is giving the Democratic frontrunner a healthy challenge and there are polls where he’s ahead… wthin striking distance of her,” Hurt stressed. “Bernie Sanders is a socialist!”

“It’s amazing that he caucuses with Democrats,” he added.

“The idea that this is even a remote prospect anywhere on the horizon of American political thought…communism has killed more people… the idea that this guy is out there…talk about hate speech…this guy is treated as legitimate and the media goes bananas over Donald Trump because he talks about wanting to secure the border, wanting to stop radical Islamic terrorism.”

“The idea that the media finds that so much more shocking…it really tells you a lot about where mainstream media is and how completely totally out of touch, lost touch, the entire Democrat Party really is these days,” Hurt said.

He added that the establishment is “terrified of going after any Democrat over anything,” adding that they are afraid to take on immigration, Bill Clinton’s sex scandalized past and Black Lives Matter.

“All I can think is do they have something in their background we should know about,” Hurt questioned. “Who gets nervous about making intelligent arguments about something and worries about being called a racist?”

“She is responsible,” Hurt said of Hillary Clinton’s role in Bill Clinton’s sexual past. “She stood by him every step of the way and she led the charge in discrediting and destroying every single one of these victims.”

“She is absolutely 100 percent culpable and responsible,” he added. “The only war on women I’m aware of is the war on women that’s raged by Bill Clinton.”

Hurt said this opens the lane for Trump. “He just walks right on up and all he has to do is state the obvious at every turn and he has become Teflon Don.”

BOOM: Trump Reveals First Dept. He’ll Cut as President… Liberals Howl in Horror


waving flagBy: V Saxena on October 21, 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/trump-reveals-first-cut/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=ConservativeHeadlinesEmail&utm_campaign=PM1&utm_content=2015-12-29

Speaking with Fox News host Chris Wallace this weekend, 2016 GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump made a remarkable statement about what he planned for the Department of Education, if and when he becomes president.

I may cut Department of Education,” Trump said. “I believe Common Core is a very bad thing. I believe that we should be — you know, educating our children from Iowa, from New Hampshire, from South Carolina, from California, from New York. I think that it should be local education.”Picture13

Many Americans agree, especially as the Department of Education has grown into a massive bureaucracy more focused on indoctrinating students in the Islamic faith and “white privilege” than in actually teaching them things that matter, like, say, literature and math.

Plus, getting rid of the Department of Education would give parents much more power over what their children learn.

However, whether Trump could get actually rid of Common Core, which is his apparent goal, remains to be seen.

As The Daily Caller reporter Blake Neff explained, “While Common Core is promoted indirectly by the Department of Education, it is still adopted individually by state governments, and the federal government does not control it.”

Still, it’s a very worthwhile goal to consider since many parents are fed-up with Common Core’s “one-size-fits-all” approach to education.

Frankly, education is much too important to be mass produced … and thankfully, most Americans, including Donald Trump, get this.

MUSLIM REFUGEE REPORT: Look What Happened After These Holier Than Thou Liberals Invited Refugees Into Their Home


waving flagBy: V Saxena on December 28, 2015

Do you want

In an ironic twist of the fate, the same bleeding-heart liberals who opened their South African farm to hundreds of Central African refugees who were allegedly fleeing “xenophobic violence” have themselves — along with their 10 childrenbeen driven from their own home and threatened with murder.

This occurred last week, when the refugees from Burundi and the Congo reportedly grew tired of waiting to be relocated to a proper home in another country and started acting out violently against farm owners Andrew and Rae Wartnaby.

“Then in the early hours of the morning, at around 2 a.m., they came smashing on my windows and doors and saying that they will kill me because I work for the government and I am not helping them,” Andrew recalled to News24.com.

Then when Rae looked through a window, she saw flames engulfing one of the refugees’ tents.

“I immediately asked if everyone is OK but they kept shouting that tonight was my night and they will kill me,” Andrew continued. “I haven’t slept since then.”Do you want

To be fair, not all the Muslim refugees are acting out against Andrew and his wife. Apparently, the refugees split into two groups — one that wants to work with Andrew, Rae and their government contacts to find a way out of South Africa, and another that refuses to listen to reason.

“I tried to talk to them but they refused to listen because they believe I am selling them out to the lawyers and government and that Andrew is not helping them be placed in another country,” Vital Nshinirimana, the leader of the group cooperating with the couple, explained.

Obviously, Andrew and Rae wanted to help all the Muslim refugees, but how could they help people who in their arrogance refused to be helped? If nothing else, this story highlights exactly why bleeding-heart liberals need to be very careful about what they do. While we understand that they just want to help people, sometimes it is best to let folks just figure things out for themselves.

If You Wipe Your Butt With Your Bare Hand But Consider Bacon To Be Unclean, You may be a Muslim. By: Jeff Foxworthy

The ” M ” (MUSLIM) word… by Jeff Foxworthy
Have you ever wondered why it’s OK to make jokes about Catholics, the Pope, Jews, Christians, the Irish, the Italians, the Polish, the Chinese, the French (including French Canadians), the elderly, bad golfers, men/women , blacks/whites, etc, but its insensitive to make jokes about Muslims? Time to level the playing field and be politically correct by including the Muslims!
Jeff Foxworthy on Muslims:

1. If you grow and refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to liquor,  You may be a Muslim.
2. If you own a $3,000 machine gun and a $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can’t afford shoes,  You may be a Muslim.
3. If you have more wives than teeth, You may be a Muslim.

4.If you wipe your butt with your bare hand but consider bacon to be unclean,  You may be a Muslim.
5. If you think vests come in two styles: Bullet-proof and suicide.
You may be a Muslim.
6. If you can’t think of anyone you haven’t declared jihad against,  You may be a Muslim.
7. If you consider television dangerous but routinely carry explosives in your clothing,  You may be a Muslim.
8. If you were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses other than setting off roadside bombs,  You may be a Muslim.
9. If you have nothing against women and think every man should own at least four,  You may be a Muslim.

ISIS ‘rape handbook’ reveals 15 rules for slaves’ ‘owners’ – from banning sons and fathers from sharing the same woman to outlawing sex with a mother and daughter


waving flagBy Simon Tomlinson for MailOnline

ISIS has issued an extremely detailed ruling on when the ‘owners’ of female slaves can have sex with them in a sickening attempt to justify the rape and torture of its captives. The ruling or fatwa has the force of law and appears to go beyond ISIS’s previous known utterances on the subject, a leading Islamic State scholar said. It sheds new light on how the group is trying to reinterpret centuries-old teachings to sanction the sexual slavery of women in the swaths of Syria and Iraq it controls.

The fatwa was among a huge trove of documents captured by U.S. Special Operations Forces during a raid targeting a top ISIS official in Syria in May.

Harrowing: Shocking footage has emerged which appears to show ISIS gunmen dragging terrified wives and daughters from their families to make them sex slaves in an apartment block. A fatwa has been discovered in Syria which contains extremely detailed rulings on when the 'owners' of female slaves can have sex with them

Explicit: Fatwa No 64, dated January 29, 2015, and issued by the terror group's Committee of Research and Fatwas, appears to codify sexual relations between ISIS fighters and their female captives for the first time, going further than a pamphlet issued by the group in 2014 on how to treat slaves

Reuters news agency has reviewed some of the documents, which have not been previously published.

  • Among the religious rulings are bans on a father and son having sex with the same female slave; and the owner of a mother and daughter having sex with both.
  • Joint owners of a female captive are similarly enjoined from intercourse because she is viewed as ‘part of a joint ownership.’

The United Nations and human rights groups have accused ISIS of the systematic abduction and rape of thousands of women and girls as young as 12, especially members of the Yazidi minority in northern Iraq.

Many have been given to fighters as a reward or sold as sex slaves.

Far from trying to conceal the practice, Islamic State has boasted about it and established a department of ‘war spoils’ to manage slavery.

Reuters reported on the existence of the department on Monday.

In an April report, Human Rights Watch interviewed 20 female escapees who recounted how Islamic State fighters separated young women and girls from men and boys and older women. They were moved ‘in an organized and methodical fashion to various places in Iraq and Syria.’

Speaking out: 21-year-old Yazidi woman, Nadia Murad Basee Taha, describes her experience of being an ISIS sex slave in front of the United Nations Security Council earlier this month

Fatwa No. 64, dated January 29, 2015, and issued by the terror group’s Committee of Research and Fatwas, appears to codify sexual relations between ISIS fighters and their female captives for the first time, going further than a pamphlet issued by the group in 2014 on how to treat slaves.

The fatwa starts with a question: ‘Some of the brothers have committed violations in the matter of the treatment of the female slaves.

‘These violations are not permitted by Sharia law because these rules have not been dealt with in ages. Are there any warnings pertaining to this matter?’

It then lists 15 injunctions, which in some instances go into explicit detail.

For example, one says: ‘If the owner of a female captive, who has a daughter suitable for intercourse, has sexual relations with the latter, he is not permitted to have intercourse with her mother and she is permanently off limits to him.  

‘Should he have intercourse with her mother then he is not permitted to have intercourse with her daughter and she is to be off limits to him.’

ISIS’s sexual exploitation of female captives has been well documented, but a leading ISIS expert at Princeton University, Cole Bunzel, who has reviewed many of the group’s writings, said the fatwa went beyond what has previously been published by the militants on how to treat female slaves.

‘It reveals the actual concerns of ISIS slave owners,’ he said in an email.

The United Nations and human rights groups have accused ISIS of the systematic abduction and rape of thousands of women and girls as young as 12, especially members of the Yazidi minority (above, file picture)

The United Nations and human rights groups have accused ISIS of the systematic abduction and rape of thousands of women and girls as young as 12, especially members of the Yazidi minority (above, file picture)

Still, he cautioned that not ‘everything dealt with in the fatwa is indicative of a relevant violation.

‘It doesn’t mean father and son were necessarily sharing a girl. They’re at least being ‘warned’ not to. But I bet some of these violations were being committed.’

  • The fatwa also instructs owners of female slaves to ‘show compassion towards her, be kind to her, not humiliate her and not assign her work she is unable to perform.’
  • An owner should also not sell her to an individual whom he knows will mistreat her.

Professor Abdel Fattah Alawari, dean of Islamic Theology at Al-Azhar University, a 1,000-year-old Egyptian centre for Islamic learning, said ISIS ‘has nothing to do with Islam’ and was deliberately misreading centuries-old verses and sayings that were originally designed to end, rather than encourage, slavery.

‘Islam preaches freedom to slaves, not slavery. Slavery was the status quo when Islam came around,’ he said.

‘Judaism, Christianity, Greek, Roman and Persian civilisations all practiced it and took the females of their enemies as sex slaves. 

‘So Islam found this abhorrent practice and worked to gradually remove it.’Lying

In September 2014, more than 120 Islamic scholars from around the world issued an open letter to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi refuting the group’s religious arguments to justify many of its actions.  The scholars noted that the ‘reintroduction of slavery is forbidden in Islam.’

THE 15 DOS AND DON’TS FOR ‘OWNERS’ OF ISIS FEMALE SEX SLAVES

  • It is not permissible for the owner of a female captive to have intercourse with her until after she has had menstrual cycle and becomes clean.
  • If she does not menstruate and is pregnant, he is not allowed to have intercourse with her until after she has given birth.
  • It is not permissible to cause her to abort if she is pregnant.
  • If the owner of a female captive releases her, only he can have intercourse with her and he cannot allow someone else to have intercourse with her.
  • If the owner of a female captive, who has a daughter suitable for intercourse, has sexual relations with the latter, he is not permitted to have intercourse with her mother and she is permanently off limits to him. Should he have intercourse with her mother then he is not permitted to have intercourse with her daughter and she is to be off-limits to him.
  • The owner of two sisters is not allowed to have intercourse with both of them; rather he may only have intercourse with just one. The other sister is to be had by him, if he were to relinquish ownership of the first sister by selling her, giving her away or releasing her
  • If the female captive is owned by a father, his son cannot have intercourse with her and vice-versa. Moreover, intercourse with his wife’s female captive is also not permissible
  • If a father had intercourse with his female captive then gave her away or sold her to his son, he is no longer permitted to have intercourse with her
  • If the female captive becomes pregnant by her owner, he cannot sell her and she is released after his death
  • If the owner releases his female captive then he is not permitted to have intercourse with her afterwards because she has become free and is no longer his property
  • If two or more individuals are involved in purchasing a female captive, none of them are permitted to have sex with her because she is part of a joint ownership
  • It is not permissible to have intercouse with a female captive during her menstrual cycle
  • It is not permissible top have anal sex with a female captive
  • The owner of a female captive should show compassion towards her, be kind to her, not humiliate her and not assign her work she is unable to perform

Thousands of Hillary Clinton’s private emails will hit the Internet on New Year’s Eve thanks to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that permits the State Department to wait until the end of each month to release the documents.

The holiday email release will mark the eighth time the agency has published a batch of Clinton’s records according to the monthly schedule. The first release came in May of this year and contained fewer than 300 emails, all of them related to Benghazi.

Clinton’s use of a personal server to shield her private emails from the public hobbled the early days of her presidential campaign. In the weeks since, her poll numbers have rebounded and speculation about whether the email controversy could cost her the nomination has largely abated.

The former secretary of state saw a turning point in the scandal near the end of October, when she took the stand for a grueling 11-hour hearing before the House Select Committee on Benghazi and fielded dozens of questions about her email use. Clinton’s poll numbers began to climb shortly after the hearing.H-Cell-600-LI

The final batch of Clinton emails will be released to the public Jan. 29. At that point, all 55,000 pages of records will be available online for review.

Clinton has pointed to the State Department’s steady publication of her emails as evidence of her commitment to transparency. However, the documents she turned over to the agency late last year make up only half of the total number of emails that were once stored on her personal server, which is now in FBI custody.

lying so longAccording to papers filed in the FOIA lawsuit that forced the State Department to begin publishing the emails earlier this year, the agency is scheduled to publish roughly 8,800 pages of records Thursday. The lawsuit was filed by Jason Leopold, a reporter at Vice News.

The New Year’s Eve release should bring the total pages of Clinton emails available online to at least 45,100, with the remainder slated for publication in January. After a slow start, the agency has run ahead of schedule for the past few document releases.

Hundreds of emails are expected to be marked classified in the remaining unpublished email trove, as all monthly releases since this summer have contained classified material.

Climate Models Have Been Wrong About Global Warming For Six Decades


Reported by Michael Bastasch, 12/28/2015

Godfather of the Green Mafia

Climate models used by scientists to predict how much human activities will warm the planet have been over-predicting global warming for the last six decades, according to a recent working paper by climate scientists. “Everyone by now is familiar with the ‘pause’ or ‘slowdown’ in the rate of global warming that has taken place over the past 20 years of so, but few realize is that the observed warming rate has been beneath the model mean expectation for periods extending back to the mid-20th century—60+ years,” Patrick Michaels and Chip Knappenberger, climate scientists at the libertarian Cato Institute, write in a working paper released in December.Settled-Science-600-LA

Michaels and Knappenberger compared observed global surface temperature warming rates since 1950 to what was predicted by 108 climate models used by government climate scientists to predict how much carbon dioxide emissions will warm the planet. What they found was the models projected much higher warming rates than actually occurred.

During all periods from 10 years (2006-2015) to 65 (1951-2015) years in length, the observed temperature trend lies in the lower half of the collection of climate model simulations,” Michaels and Knappenberger write, “and for several periods it lies very close (or even below) the 2.5th percentile of all the model runs.”

Climate models fail to predict warming

To further bolster their case that climate models are over-predicting warming rates, Michaels and Knappenberger looked at how climate models fared against satellite and weather balloon data from the mid-troposphere. The result is the same, and climate models predicted way more warming than actually occurred.

Satellites show even less warming

Source: The Cato Institute

“This is a devastating indictment of climate model performance,” Michaels and Knappenberger write. “For periods of time longer than about 20 years, the observed trends from all data sources fall beneath the lower bound which contains 95 percent of all model trends and in the majority of cases, falls beneath even the absolute smallest trend found in any of the 102 climate model runs.”Ponzi Scheme“The amount of that over-prediction comports well with a growing body of scientific findings and growing understanding that the sensitivity of the earth’s surface temperature to rising atmospheric greenhouse gas levels… lies towards (and yet within) the low end of the mainstream assessed likely range.”

Satellite temperatures, which measure the lowest few miles of the Earth’s atmosphere, show there’s been no significant global warming for the last two decades despite rapidly rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. The so-called “hiatus” in warming has sparked an intense debate among climate scientists over what’s caused warming to disappear. Dozens of theories have been put forward as to why global warming has stalled, but no one has cracked the case.Solid-Foundation-600-wLogo

Michaels and Knappenberger, however, suggest the “hiatus” and the previous decades of overblown temperature predictions point to a huge flaw in climate science: the climate isn’t as sensitive to CO2 as previously thought.

The Cato scientists argue “climate sensitivity” estimates are too high and are causing climate models to over-predict how much warming will happen with increases in greenhouse gas emissions. Climate sensitivity refers to how much warming would occur with a doubling of atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.

Climate scientists typically put climate sensitivity at 3 degrees Celsius, but a slew of new studies suggest that’s way too high an estimate based on how much warming has been observed in recent decades. One estimate put together by the U.K.-based Global Warming Policy Foundation last year found climate sensitivity may be as low as 1.75 degrees Celsius — almost half what mainstream climate models use.

The donation campaign is tragically ironic given that Toy Story and its sequels are movies that celebrate children and the role toys play in providing their enjoyment — where as Planned Parenthood is an abortion company that makes a living killing children.

Liberals deny ‘the Ferguson effect’ even as Baltimore experiences RECORD HIGH homicide rates!


waving flagPosted by soopermexican on Dec 26, 2015

Baltimore is experiencing record high levels of murder even as liberals deny “the Ferguson effect,” the theory that crime is soaring because police are being intimidated from doing their job properly as a results of anti-cop movements and statements from government officials.

Here are the stats from Baltimore:

Another round of homicides over the weekend in Baltimore — and the death of a student stabbed last month in a school classroom — pushed the total number of killings this year to 336, the second-highest total on record.

Given that the city has many fewer residents now than in the 1990s, this year’s toll already represents the highest per-capita homicide rate in Baltimore history. The city hit that mark last month.

The only year with more homicide deaths was 1993, when there were 353 killings but also about 100,000 more residents.

The latest list of victims provided by Baltimore police includes two men stabbed to death downtown — the first killings in the downtown area this year — as well as a 1-year-old who was killed Dec. 16.

Police identified Antwan Turner, 19, and Brandon Holland, 28, as the two men stabbed to death early Sunday in the 300 block of N. Calvert St. They identified the 1-year-old boy as Brandon Washington of the 700 block of E. 23rd St., and announced they had arrested Timothy Dunbar, 23, of the same address and charged him with second-degree murder in the boy’s death.Epidemic of racism

And further on…

The city’s per-capita homicide rate now is 54 per 100,000 residents, the highest ever. In 1993, the rate was 48.8 per 100,000 residents.

With its 336th homicide of the year, Baltimore surpassed the total in 1992, when there were 335 killings.

Now this is not the case across the board. In about half of the larger cities, crime is up, and in the other half, crime is steady or lower. And, over the last 20 years, crime in America generally is in the record lows.

Ann Coulter Letter: Happy Kwanzaa! The Holiday Brought to You by the FBI


waving flagCommentary by  Ann Coulter | 

URL of the original posting site: http://humanevents.com/2015/12/23/happy-kwanzaa-the-holiday-brought-to-you-by-the-fbi-2/?utm_source=coulterdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl

Happy Kwanzaa! The Holiday Brought to You by the FBI

I will not be shooting any Black Panthers this week because I am Kwanza-reform, and we are not that observant. Kwanzaa, celebrated exclusively by white liberals, is a fake holiday invented in 1966 by black radical/FBI stooge Ron Everett — aka Dr. Maulana Karenga, founder of United Slaves, the violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers. In the annals of the American ’60s, Karenga was the Father Gapon, stooge of the czarist police.

In what was ultimately a foolish gambit, during the madness of the ’60s, the FBI encouraged the most extreme black nationalist organizations in order to discredit and split the left. The more preposterous the group, the better. By that criterion, Karenga’s United Slaves was perfect. 

Despite modern perceptions that blend all the black activists of the ’60s, the Black Panthers did not hate whites. Although some of their most high-profile leaders were drug dealers and murderers, they did not seek armed revolution.

Those were the precepts of Karenga’s United Slaves. The United Slaves were proto-fascists, walking around in dashikis, gunning down Black Panthers and adopting invented “African” names.

And hasn’t that been a huge help to the black community?

It’s as if David Duke invented a holiday called “Anglika,” which he based on the philosophy of “Mein Kampf” — and clueless public school teachers began celebrating the made-up, racist holiday.

Whether Karenga was a willing FBI dupe, or just a dupe, remains unclear.

In the category of the-gentleman-doth-protest-too-much, back in the ’70s, Karenga was quick to criticize Nigerian newspapers that claimed that certain American black radicals were CIA operatives. Karenga publicly denounced the idea, saying, “Africans must stop generalizing about the loyalties and motives of Afro-Americans, including the widespread suspicion of black Americans being CIA agents.”

In a 1995 interview with Ethnic NewsWatch, Karenga matter-of-factly explained that the forces out to get O.J. Simpson for the “framed” murder of two whites included: “the FBI, the CIA, the State Department, Interpol, the Chicago Police Department” and so on. Karenga should know about FBI infiltration. (He further noted that the evidence against O.J. did not “eliminate unreasonable doubt” — an interesting standard of proof.)

Now we know: The FBI fueled the bloody rivalry between the Panthers and United Slaves. In one barbarous outburst, Karenga’s United Slaves shot two Black Panthers to death on the UCLA campus: Al “Bunchy” Carter and John Huggins. Karenga himself served time, a useful stepping-stone for his current position as a black studies professor at California State University at Long Beach.

(Speaking of which, Rep. Paul Ryan certainly is right about what a fantastic job his mentor Jack Kemp did reaching out to all those “socially conservative” minorities. Look at how California has swung decisively to the right since Kemp started all that outreach stuff. Good luck winning California now, Democrats!)

Back to the esteemed Cal State professor: Karenga’s invented holiday is a nutty blend of schmaltzy ’60s rhetoric, black racism and Marxism. The seven principles of Kwanzaa are the very same seven principles of the Symbionese Liberation Army, another invention of the Worst Generation.

In 1974, Patty Hearst, kidnap victim-cum-SLA revolutionary, posed next to the banner of her alleged captors, a seven-headed cobra. Each snakehead stood for one of the SLA’s revolutionary principles: Umoja, Kujichagulia, Ujima, Ujamaa, Nia, Kuumba and Imani. These are the exact same seven “principles” of Kwanzaa. And here’s something interesting: Kawaida, Kwanzaa and Kuumba are also the only three Kardashian sisters not to have their own shows on the E! Network.

Kwanzaa praises collectivism in every possible area of life — economics, work, personality, even litter removal. (“Kuumba: Everyone should strive to improve the community and make it more beautiful.”) It takes a village to raise a police snitch. When Karenga was asked to distinguish Kawaida, the philosophy underlying Kwanzaa, from “classical Marxism,” he essentially said that, under Kawaida, we also hate whites.

While taking the “best of early Chinese and Cuban socialism” — excluding, one hopes, mass murder, forced abortions, imprisonment of homosexuals and forced labor — Karenga said Kawaida practitioners believe one’s racial identity “determines life conditions, life chances and self-understanding.”

There’s an inclusive philosophy for you!

Kwanzaa was the result of a ’60s psychosis grafted onto the black community with the tacit encouragement of the FBI. Liberals have become so mesmerized by multicultural gibberish that they have forgotten the real history of Kwanzaa and Karenga’s United Slaves — the violence, the Marxism, the insanity.

Most absurdly, for leftists anyway, they have forgotten the FBI’s tacit encouragement of this murderous black nationalist cult founded by the father of Kwanzaa.

Kwanzaa emerged not from Africa, but from the FBI’s COINTELPRO.

Sing to “Jingle Bells”:

Kwanzaa bells, dashikis sell

Whitey has to pay;

Burning, shooting, oh what fun

On this made-up holiday!

Only white liberals take Kwanzaa seriously. American Blacks celebrate Christmas. (Merry Christmas, fellow Christians!)

Conservative Icon says that Donald Trump is the “Last Hope for America”!

“This is a betrayal of the grassroots and of the Republican Party. We thought we were electing a different crowd to stand up for America, and they didn’t. We’re extremely outraged by what Congress has done. Nancy Pelosi couldn’t have engineered it any better. I think the people are going to react by electing Donald Trump.”

Conservative icon and founder of the Eagle Forum, Phyllis Schlafly, gave an exclusive interview to World Net Daily where she opined that Donald Trump was the “Last Hope for America.” Her comments came in reaction to the passing of the disastrous Omnibus Bill and Trump’s fiery response to the disgusting bill.

Here’s what Trump had to say about the Omnibus bill:

If anyone needed more evidence of why the American people are suffering at the hands of their own government, look no further than the budget deal announced by Speaker Ryan.  In order to avoid a government shutdown, a cowardly threat from an incompetent President, the elected Republicans in Congress threw in the towel and showed absolutely no budget discipline.’ 

“The American people will have to absorb higher deficits, greater debt, less economic liberty and more corporate welfare.  Congress cannot seem to help itself in bending to every whim of special interests.  How can they face their constituents when they continue to burden our children and grandchildren with debts they will never be able to repay?  Our government is failing us, so we must do something about it.  Who knows how bad things will be when the next administration comes in and has to pick up the pieces?’

“The only special interest not being served by our government is the American people.  It is time we imposed budget discipline by holding the line on spending, getting rid of waste, fraud and abuse, and by taking on our debt.  To do these things, we need a President who can lead the fight to hold Congress and the rest of government accountable.  Together, we will Make America Great Again.”

Schlafly gave her full-throated support of Trump’s comments to WND.

“It sounds like Donald Trump is the only one who has any fight in him. He will fight for the issues that we really care about and are very hot at the present time, such as the immigration issue. I don’t see anyone else who’s eager to fight.”

She then added that the GOP had just betrayed the American people with their support of the Omnibus bill.

donald trump“It’s the worst kind of a betrayal because we thought we elected a bunch of good guys who would shape up the party. We had a lot of fancy promises that the Republicans were going to shape up and change course. And they disappointed us. Betrayal is an appropriate word to describe it.”

When WND wondered if Trump was America’s “last hope,” Schlafly begrudgingly agreed with the sentiment.

He does look like he’s the last hope [for America]. We don’t hear anybody saying what he’s saying. In fact, most of the people who ought to be lining up with him are attacking him. They’re probably jealous of the amount of press coverage he gets. But the reason he gets so much press coverage is How is Trump Looking Now no more rinos In God We Trust freedom combo 2the grassroots are fed up with people who are running things, and they do want a change. They do want people to stand up for America. It really resonates when he says he wants to ‘Make America Great Again.’”

The vote of confidence from one of America’s most iconic conservatives will give Trump a boost with the grassroots conservative movement who still largely look at Trump with a skeptical eye.

Ridiculous Meme on Facebook Shows Just How Shallow Leftist Thinking is


waving flagPosted on December 26, 2015Rob Knowles

Latest.com shared a meme on Facebook that, as of this posting, has over 21,500 “likes.” The meme is a photograph of an American Indian, and the caption reads: “Let me get this straight. You’re afraid of refugees coming to America, killing you, and taking your property?”

indianThe comments section is brimming with affirmations such as “Right on!” and “Love this!” Sure, there is some dissent, but the fact that more than 21,500 people clicked the like button means that at least 21,500 people are completely retarded–sorry, learning disabled–because the meme presents a straw man.

First, let’s set aside the facile thinking that takes a complicated situation and reduces it to an 18-word bite, as well as the potential historical inaccuracies, and take the meme at its word. Now let’s break this into two pieces, because there are two essential problems here.

The first issue with this meme is that it’s a straw man. The basement-dweller who created this meme likely fancies himself a pipe-smoking intellectual, but he completely misrepresents the issue. 

The American people are not afraid of refugees killing them and taking their property, they are simply wary of thousands of people entering the United States who cannot be properly vetted–specifically because two of the perpetrators of the terror attack in Paris arrived in Greece as alleged Syrian refugees.

James Comey, the director of the FBI, said refugees coming from Syria would be difficult to vet with any degree of certainty because of the chaos in Syria. Is it not rational then that we be reticent? Is it not rational to say that in an era of mass-casualty attacks by Islamic radicals–radicals who have already proven that they can hide among refugees–that we take a breath to asses the situation before opening the gates to potential dangers? Apparently not. We’re just bigots.Do you want

Additionally, who said we’re afraid the refugees will take our property? I’ll tell you who: The mouth-breather who created the meme.

Second, and possibly most important, the meme disproves itself. If we take the meme at face value, the question must be asked: How’d that work out for the Indians?

OPINION: “A political bomb is about to blow up in the Democrats’ faces”


December 24 2016

THE MORNING PLUM:

This scoop from Jerry Markon and David Nakamura is going to scramble the politics of immigration in the presidential race, and it may create more problems for Democrats than for Republicans:

The Department of Homeland Security has begun preparing for a series of raids that would target for deportation hundreds of families who have flocked to the United States since the start of last year, according to people familiar with the operation.

The nationwide campaign, to be carried out by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents as soon as early January, would be the first large-scale effort to deport families who have fled violence in Central America, those familiar with the plan said. More than 100,000 families with both adults and children have made the journey across the southwest border since last year, though this migration has largely been overshadowed by a related surge of unaccompanied minors.

The ICE operation would target only adults and children who have already been ordered removed from the United States by an immigration judge, according to officials familiar with the undertaking…The adults and children would be detained wherever they can be found and immediately deported. The number targeted is expected to be in the hundreds and possibly greater.

Read the rest for the details, but the short version is that there has been vigorous internal debate inside the Obama administration about this policy, and it has not been signed off on officially. The administration has long signaled that families crossing over illegally who do not qualify for asylum will be deported. But advocates have been urging the administration to treat these migrants as refugees, because experts believe that violence in Central America is a key reason for their efforts to cross the southern border.illegalalienvoters-300x300

Picture1In a preview of more to come, a leading immigration advocate, Frank Sharry of America’s Voice, told me that there will be intense pressure on the Democratic presidential candidates — particularly likely nominee Hillary Clinton — to denounce the new policy. Sharry pointed out that this could force Clinton to decide whether to align with immigration advocates and Latinos, as she’s been doing in hopes of winning the Latino vote by a huge margin in the general election, which would mean breaking with the Obama administration and adopting a position that Republicans will attack as weak on immigration enforcement.

“This will be a political nightmare for the Democrats,” Sharry told me. “The specter of raids picking up families and sending them back to violent countries is going to put Hillary Clinton in a difficult position. She’ll have to choose between protecting refugees from Central America, a demand of the Latino community, or standing with the law-and-order position of Obama and Republicans.”Happy Happy Joy Joy

hillary-prison-or-potusClinton has faced a similar predicament before. In 2014, when the crisis of unaccompanied children crossing the border dominated the news, Clinton triggered an outcry from immigration advocates when she suggested that they should be “sent back.” Clinton subsequently clarified her position, arguing that the process should be improved so those children who are genuine refugees would be recognized and treated as such. But the episode called into question whether Clinton can take Latino support for granted.

The new moves also may threaten to blur the contrasts that Democrats have been working hard to draw with Republicans. The rise of Donald Trump — with his call for mass deportations and fondness for insulting millions of immigrants — has helped drag the GOP ever rightward on immigration and has Democrats dreaming of a 2012-level victory among Latinos in 2016, a demographic edge that would be very hard for Republicans to overcome. Sharry suggested that if the Dem nominee doesn’t full-throatedly condemn the new policy, it could compromise the sharp contrast Dems have etched.

H-Cell-600-LIIndeed, one can imagine Trump taking credit for the stepped-up deportations at one of his rallies, arguing that, by forcing a conversation about the true nature of the immigrant threat (which he likes to claim credit for doing), he has forced spineless elites to confront it. That could theoretically make it harder for Clinton to align with Obama. “The administration will be accused of being Trump-like with immigrants,” Sharry said. “She’ll have to choose.”

That’s right. According to the FAA, come Monday, it will be a federal felony to fail to comply with a regulatory decree that did not exist a mere seven days earlier.

Going forward, every drone owner whose aircraft meets the weight requirement at takeoff will be required to register his or her drones with the FAA. The FAA will be collecting names, addresses, and emails from drone owners, and issuing certificates of registry and a unique ID number (similar to an aircraft tail number) that owners must display on their aircraft. According to the FAA, this registry requirement will promote a safety culture among recreational drone operators and deter bad actors from flying their drones dangerously.

For those keeping track, it was only two months ago that the FAA announced it was forming a task force to come up with recommendations for the implementation of a drone registry. One month later, the Task Force, having met for all of three days, returned aseries of recommendations. And today, three weeks later, the FAA has used its regulatory authority to establish a recreational drone registry.

There is one problem with this: The FAA is acting contrary to a law that Congress passed in 2012, which prevents the FAA from doing what it has now done by proactively banning it from regulating model aircraft—including drones when they are used for recreational or hobby purposes.

Section 336 of theFAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012plainly states:

Notwithstanding any other provision of law relating to the incorporation of unmanned aircraft systems in Federal Aviation Administration plans and policies, including this subtitle, the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration may not promulgate any rule or regulation regarding a model aircraft, or an aircraft being developed as a model aircraft[.]

The FAA’sfeeble responseto this apparent congressional prohibition is that establishing the drone registry is not, in fact, a regulation. Further, the FAA asserts that it has always had the authority to require model aircraft, including drones, to be registered. According to the FAA, when Congress defined drones as “aircraft” in the 2012 statute, it actually affirmed the FAA’s legal authority—despite the prohibition on regulatory action—to require that they be registered in the future.

This argument is absurd on its face.

The statute plainly establishes that recreational aircraft are beyond regulation so long as they do not exceed 55 pounds, are operated safely and in accordance with “community-based set[s] of safety guidelines,” do not endanger the national airspace, and are flown in conjunction with airport operators when they fly within five miles of an airport.

In other words, Congress wants local jurisdictions to set the rules governing recreational drone use.

This does not mean the FAA lacks any authority to act with regard to drones. In fact, it has a congressional mandate to regulate commercial drone use—a responsibility it thoroughly bungled when it missed its deadline to develop a commercial drone regulatory framework. And Section 336 expressly grants the FAA the authority to pursue enforcement action against specific recreational or hobby drone users who endanger the national airspace.

A blanket registry requirement for all drone owners, by contrast, would appear to be exactly what Congress does not want the FAA to do.

Nevertheless, the FAA is pushing forward with its registry rush job, insisting that requiring drones to be registered and marked will somehow allow law enforcement officials to tie illicitly flown drones back to their owners.

All evidence, however, points to the contrary. The FAA lacks the ability to track drone purchases en masse, making general enforcement of the registry requirement all but impossible. While good-faith drone owners will likely comply, bad actors who buy drones intending to fly into the paths of passenger jets or interfere with firefighting operations will have no incentive to register, since they are essentially signing their own arrest warrants. And even if they did register, what good would it do if the drone is sucked into a jet engine or melted by wildfire, or if—as happens frequently—it returns safely to its owner?

As a result, the FAA has succeeded once more at inserting the federal bureaucracy into an area it previously did not inhabit, without clear authority from Congress, without adequate notice to or comment from the public, and without actually solving any of the problems it claims to be tackling. All the while, it is acting directly contrary to the will of Congress and exposing millions of Americans to outrageously steep civil fines and criminal liability.

Should failing to register a small flying toy that may never leave an owner’s yard really amount to a federal felony? According to the FAA, the answer is “yes.”

But don’t worry: FAA officials insist that the threat of jail time is more about achieving compliance than actually punishing owners who do not register their drones.Bull

In this era of overcriminalization, that assurance falls on deaf ears. So long as an unnecessary criminal law is on the books, it exposes otherwise innocent people to arbitrary enforcement—and that is how you get cases likeAbner Schoenwettergoing to prison for packing lobsters in plastic rather than cardboard boxes, orBobby Unserbeing prosecuted for snowmobiling onto federal land while lost in a blinding blizzard and struggling to survive.

The FAA’s drone registry is public policy at its worst: rushed, opaque, and sure to trap innocent people in the web of overcriminalization.

Cruz fires back at Washington Post with his own political cartoon


waving flagPublished December 24, 2015, FoxNews.com

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz fired back at The Washington Post with a political cartoon of his own portraying the paper as one of Hillary Clinton’s “lapdogs,” after the Post ran a cartoon depicting his daughters as monkeys.

The newspaper pulled that Cruz cartoon Tuesday from its website, saying “it’s generally the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it.”

But the incident touched off a firestorm, as Cruz lambasted the paper for mocking his children and other candidates leapt to his defense.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Texas senator escalated his criticism by tweeting his own sketch — of Clinton walking two “lapdogs,” named The Washington Post and The New York Times.

Speaking to reporters in Tulsa, the senator said he generally has thick skin but was irritated after seeing the Post cartoon.

“Not much ticks me off, but making fun of my girls? That will do it,” Cruz said. “Don’t mess with my kids. Don’t mess with Marco’s kids. Don’t mess with Hillary’s kids. Don’t mess with anybody’s kids.”

He said he appreciated the newspaper pulling the cartoon. “That was the right thing to do,” he said.

The cartoon was done by Ann Telnaes, who apparently published it in response to a Cruz online ad showing him reading politics-related Christmas stories to his daughters, 7-year-old Caroline and 4-year-old Catherine.

After that ad, Telnaes said on Twitter: “Ted Cruz has put his children in a political ad- don’t start screaming when editorial cartoonists draw them as well.”definetly

She then produced the cartoon, which depicted Cruz as an organ grinder dressed in a Santa Claus costume while two similarly-clad monkeys danced on leashes in front of him. The cartoon was captioned, “Ted Cruz uses his kids as political props.”

BREAKING: San Bernardino Families Reveal Sick Thing Obama Did During “Comforting” Photo-Op


waving flagBy: Wilmot Proviso on December 21, 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/families-revea-sick-thing/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=ConservativeHeadlinesEmail&utm_campaign=AM1&utm_content=2015-12-23

On a stopover last week in San Bernardino, California, President Barack Obama was sure to visit with the families of those killed in the terrorist attack. As for the wounded and their families? Not so much.

According to the U.K. Daily Mail, Obama spent Friday evening with the families of the 14 dead, offering hugs and getting in some photos. However, one local official severely criticized Obama for failing to meet with first responders and the 22 who were left wounded by the Dec. 2 attack. The visit was carried out as Obama was en route to his annual Christmas vacation in Hawaii.

The San Bernardino attacks, carried out by married Muslim terrorists Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, has been a cause celebre for an Obama administration pushing for gun control. Recent reports indicate that the president specifically instructed intelligence services to downplay the terrorism aspect of the attack.

San Bernardino Supervisor Curt Hagman said the president was using a terror attack to “to promote his agenda on gun control.” He also called upon Obama to visit with first responders and wounded who “also deserve the president’s time.”

“This is an opportunity for unity and healing at the highest level and I call upon President Obama to be more inclusive with his meeting,” Hagman said in a statement.

Obama’s use of San Bernardino as yet another photo opportunity shouldn’t necessarily come as a surprise. After all, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama’s visit to San Bernardino was “patterned after” a similar visit he made to Roseburg, Oregon, in October after a shooting at Umpqua Community College.

During that visit, Obama met with some of the families of victims and pressed for gun control. However, he didn’t meet with either first responders or other family members of the wounded who had expressed opposition to Obama’s use of the tragedy as platform for gun control legislation.

Obama seems rather immune to that sort of criticism, though. As Rahm Emmanuel once said, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.” The president certainly doesn’t.

PICTURES: PEGIDA Celebrates Christmas With Second Annual Christmas Carols Against Islamification

Relocated from their usual spot outside the Dresden Semper Opera house, which the city council had awarded instead to a much smaller anti-PEGIDA demonstration, the protest took place instead on the banks of the Elbe river.

PEGIDA 3

Some 8,000 are reported to have turned out to sing carols last night, although the German police no longer give headcounts for PEGIDA rallies / facebook

Following the form established at the end of 2014, when PEGIDA was still only in its infancy but already attracting crowds of more than 17,000, the supporters of the movement gathered on Monday night to sing Christmas carols and listen to speeches. Published on the PEGIDA website in advance, attendees were asked to print extra copies of the carols in the programme to bring for older supporters who might not enjoy “familiarity with computers and printers”.

In the speeches, PEGIDA founder and leader Lutz Bachmann criticised the decision to prevent the organisation from meeting outside the railway station, because that is where Jews and other political enemies of the Third Reich has been deported from during the 1930s. He said there were no similarities between the PEGIDA movement and Nazism, despite what the mainstream media might say.

PEGIDA 4

Also hotly debated was the revelation by the German police this week that just 10 per cent of refugees entering Germany have their identities checked, as forces at the borders are so overstretched they have become incapable of fulfilling their legal duties. Rally organiser Siegfried Däbritz called Angela Merkel the German “Queen of crime” and said she was standing at the bow of the “Titanic Europe”, steering it towards the iceberg.

After the carols, which included Stille Nacht, Thine be the Glory, and Adeste Fideles, the crowd was led in a rendition of the German national anthem.

In the past year the PEGIDA strolling movement has weathered all scandals and road blocks thrown before it by the German establishment and mass media.

Franklin Graham Leaves GOP Over Planned Parenthood Funding


waving flagby Dr. Susan Berry23 Dec 2015, 23 Dec, 2015 23 Dec, 2015

“Shame on the Republicans and the Democrats for passing such a wasteful spending bill last week,” he posted on Facebook. “And to top it off, funding Planned Parenthood!”

Graham said the funding of Planned Parenthood was a huge loss for America, adding:

“After all of the appalling facts revealed this year about Planned Parenthood, our representatives in Washington had a chance to put a stop to this, but they didn’t. There’s no question—taxpayers should not be paying for abortions! Abortion is murder in God’s eyes. Seeing and hearing Planned Parenthood talk nonchalantly about selling baby parts from aborted fetuses with utter disregard for human life is reminiscent of Joseph Mengele and the Nazi concentration camps! That should’ve been all that was needed to turn off the faucet for their funding. Nothing was done to trim this 2,000 page, $1.1 trillion budget. This is an example of why I have resigned from the Republican Party and declared myself Independent. I have no hope in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or Tea Party to do what is best for America. Unless more godly men and women get in this process and change this wicked system, our country is in for trouble.”AMEN

Graham said he was challenging Christians – including pastors – throughout the United States to consider running for office.

“We need mayors, country commissioners, city council members, school board members who will uphold biblical values,” he asserted.

Graham said that, on January 5, in Des Moines, Iowa, he will begin a tour of the states, holding prayer rallies for the country in every capital.

25 Years Of Democratic Contributions Expose Narrow-Minded US Colleges


waving flagReported by Kathryn Watson, Reporter 12/22/2015

Major American colleges and universities – many birthed in mottos expounding “truth,” “light,” and the pursuit of “knowledge”-  apparently are only interested in hiring professors and administrators who support liberal Democrat candidates and causes with their campaign contributions. The deeply entrenched narrow-mindedness is stunning.

Vastly more of the campaign contributions by faculty and staff members at 58 major public and private universities between 1990 and 2014 went to Democrats than to Republicans at all but six of the schools, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of Federal Election Commission (FEC) data compiled by OpenSecrets.org.

The few schools that didn’t overwhelmingly favor Democrats gave only slightly more to Republicans. The vast majority of universities gave between 2.5 and 20 times more to Democrats than to Republicans, while the most conservative institutions were the most politically balanced.

That lack of partisan diversity, as reflected in campaign donations reported to the FEC, keeps students from being challenged by new ideas, critiquing their own beliefs and logics, and reaching well-reasoned conclusions about public policy issues.

“Students lose out by missing non-left interpretations of society, ethics, and human meaning,” Daniel Klein, a George Mason University economics professor who has studied the lack of ideological diversity in higher education for more than a decade, told The DCNF. “Many get sucked into leftism; many remain aloof. But they don’t get the good stuff. A terrible shame!”

Klein in 2003 surveyed 1,678 academics across six fields — anthropology, economics, history, philosophy, political science and sociology. Democrats outnumbered those who identified as libertarian or Republican by ratios of 30:1 in anthropology and 28:1 in sociology. Klein called economists the “stand-out exception,” as Democrats outnumber Republicans or libertarians by only 3:1.

“In academia, the left own the establishment; they are the establishment,” Klein told The DCNF. “They are not the radicals or rebels, they are The System.”

That bias is only increasing. 

When the University of California, Los Angeles’ Higher Education Research Institute surveyed professors across the country in 1998 to 1999, 47.5 percent identified themselves as left or far left, and more than 35 percent identified themselves as middle of the road. Eleven years later in the 2010-2011 survey, 62.7 percent identified themselves as left or far left, and 25.4 percent identified themselves as middle of the road.

UCLA’s own professors lean left in their political contributions, giving $2.8 million to Democrats over the last 25 years versus $440,000 to Republicans.

Some schools address the optics of such imbalance by designating a conservative scholar or group on campus.

That’s what the University of Colorado Boulder, with the largest proportion of contributions to Democrats in the left-leaning Pac-12 Conference, told The DCNF when confronted with the school’s lack of ideological diversity.

“We have a Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy to be sure that we are addressing conservative viewpoints as well as liberal, and we have recently expanded our Center for Western Civilization to encompass more visiting scholars who can debate all sides of the political spectrum,” CU Boulder spokesperson Ryan Huff said, emphasizing that the school recently hosted conservative speakers and a GOP presidential debate.REALLY

Hadley Heath Manning, a senior policy analyst with the conservative-leaning Independent Women’s Forum and a Colorado resident, applauded Boulder’s efforts, but said designating a conservative scholar points more to the problem than a solution.

“I do find it very bizarre that there is a dedicated position for the one token conservative and I think the lesson that sends is this is sort o a side show,” she told The DCNF. “If you have that position, you are dedicated to being a token or you’re kind of out of step.”

Heath Manning said the lopsidedness on college campuses is really a “disservice” to liberal students, who face little opposition to their beliefs and thus, have little chance to sharpen them.

“The critical in critical thinking often means critiquing your own point of view,” she said.

So, how did college campuses become so ideologically lopsided? Multiple forces are at work, Klein has suggested. Academia may attract more left-of-center minds naturally in the way that mining or agriculture naturally attracts more conservatives, as a Crowdpac analysis of professions by political preference revealed. Academia was the second-most liberal profession they analyzed, right behind the entertainment industry.

People tend to associate with like minds, so department heads tend to hire people like them, Klein said. Once a worldview dominates significantly more than half of an academic department, that cycle perpetuates more rapidly. As leftists dominate a department, conservatives are not only less likely to be hired, but less likely to want to be hired and feel like an outsider at work.

“Yes, academia is now utterly dominated by left-leaners,” Klein told The DNF. “Not lock-step uniformity, perhaps, but, by and large, non-lefts need not apply.”

“Non-left people know the score,” Klein added. “They are discouraged from pursuing an academic career, though of course there are networks in which the few non-left people find each other.”

Matthew Spalding, associate vice president at Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center in Washington, D.C., told The DCNF that the lack of diversity is “bad for all students and the cause of liberal education.” Spalding believes academia began heading on this “downward path” in the 20th century as value-neutral views began to dominate it.

“We saw the anti-establishment Left on campus bloom in the 1960s,” Spalding said. “Now the radicals are the tenured faculty and the college presidents. And as they replace themselves with increasing vengeance, it turns out they are intolerant and closed-minded. It is getting harder to find any true alternative voices on mainstream campuses and this monolithic political giving is more evidence of their illiberalism.”Never Argue Delusional

But finding the imbalance is the easy part. Addressing it is much more difficult. Universities shouldn’t use quotas, Heath Manning said. But informing college-hunting families is a good first step, she said.

“Just to bring this issue to light and give parents and students the information about what they’re going to be exposed to when they go to college,” Heath Manning told TheDCNF.

Klein has also touted awareness as the best start toward a solution, and dedicates much of his research to that end. He has also proposed allowing professors of different political affiliations to assume more responsibility in the hiring process, although he doubts most universities will agree.

Something needs to change on college campuses, or the country may continue to see campus attacks on free speech, like those at the University of Missouri and Yale University, Heath Manning said.

“I think we as a culture at large, we’ve lost a lot when it comes to that art of agreeing to disagree and exchanging different points of view,” Heath Manning said.AMEN

At least one well-known university appears not to care about the fact it has a one-sided faculty and administration.

“The university isn’t going to comment on a non-related work behavior,” UCLA spokesperson Jessica Huff told The DCNF. “… I don’t think anybody thinks about it much at all.”

Obama spent $700 million promoting homosexual tolerance abroad


waving flagBy Ed Straker December 21, 2015

President Obama has spent at least $700 million promoting homosexual tolerance in Africa.  Unfortunately, the initiative seems to have backfired:

Since 2012, the American government has put more than $700 million into supporting gay rights groups and causes globally. More than half of that money has focused on sub-Saharan Africa — just one indication of this continent’s importance to the new policy. 

The U.S. support is making matters worse,” said Mike, 24, a university student studying biology in Minna, a town in central Nigeria who asked that his full name not be used for his safety. “There’s more resistance now. It’s triggered people’s defense mechanism.”

America’s money and public diplomacy have opened conversations and opportunities in societies where the subject was taboo just a few years ago. But they have also made gay men and lesbians more visible — and more vulnerable to harassment and violence, people on both sides of the gay rights issue contend. The American campaign has stirred misgivings among many African activists, who say they must rely on the West’s support despite often disagreeing with its strategies.

In Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, the final passage of the 2014 law against homosexuality which makes same-sex relationships punishable by 14 years in prison and makes it a crime to organize or participate in any type of gay meeting — is widely regarded by both supporters and opponents of gay rights as a reaction to American pressure on Nigeria and other African nations to embrace gay rights.

Shortly after Nigeria’s law went into effect, Animashaun Azeez, 24, a university student here, arranged to meet somebody he had chatted with on Manjama, a social network for gay people. The person showed up, along with three plainclothes officers. 

Questions for discussion:

1) We have an enormous national debt of nearly 19 billion dollars, such that it seems excessive to spend 700 million dollars on this subject.  With such tremendous debt, do you think we can really justify spending more than 300 or 400 million dollars to promote gay sex in other countries?

2) Do you think this program was flawed to begin with, because there were no metrics taken – e.g., comparing the number of gay sex acts before and after the program began to measure its success?

3) Do you think there should be a greater focus on gay sex in Islamic countries?

4) Do you think funds should also be spent to encourage transgenderism, to encourage Pakistani men who feel transgendered to go into women’s bathrooms, and to encourage cross-dressing members of the Taliban to shower with the ladies as disguised men do here in America?

The mainstream media are reporting that a Bay Area plumber who allegedly planned to bomb a California mosque was a Donald Trump supporter–though he explicitly supported Hillary Clinton.

On Sunday, police arrested 55-year-old William Celli “on suspicion of possessing an explosive device and making criminal threats,” CBS San Francisco reported. A bomb squad detonated a device at his house. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) cheered the arrest.

CBS elaborated further: “On Facebook, Celli repeatedly praised Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, whose plan to bar any Muslims from entering the United States has drawn criticism even as he continues to rise in the polls.”

The Huffington Post and other left-wing sites played up Celli’s support of Trump, implying that Trump was responsible for “propelling” bigotry and “white domestic terrorism” into the “mainstream” of political debate.Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

What the media left out, however, is that Celli also praised Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

In one post, Celli wrote: “Hillary Would make a great president. If she would commit to what she is hiding. But she has to crucify the president. Then her run for the White house is over.”

William Celli Facebook Post

The post praising Hillary Clinton is dated Oct. 22–the day Clinton testified for 11 hours at the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

The Huffington Post and other outlets claimed the story has been overlooked because

Celli doesn’t fit the profile of the “terrorist” who is likely to be invoked on cable news or on a GOP debate stage. In fact, judging by Celli’s Facebook page, he seems to be the exact inverse: a disgruntled white man who has bought into the xenophobic rhetoric of people like GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.Lies Lies and More Lies

Or Hillary Clinton. But never mind the facts.

Update: The Contra Costa Times follows the same pattern, calling William Celli a “Donald Trump supporter” in the headline and throughout the piece, quoting extensively from his Facebook page without mentioning his support for Hillary Clinton.

The article uses Celli’s arrest as a way to slam Trump:

Trump has received mounting criticism from both political parties for inflammatory comments about the Muslim community, such as the idea to create databases to track American Muslims and restrict Muslims from entering the country. Critics have warned that such comments could fuel Islamophobia.

No mention of Clinton whatsoever appears in the article.

One of the authors, Thomas Peele, mocked “Bill the Plumber” on Twitter:

peele

Peele’s website boasts that he has won “more than 50 journalism awards.”

Update 2: Here’s Mediaite‘s Ken Meyer, linking to Talking Points Memo‘s Caitlin Cruz, linking to Raw Story‘s Travis Gettys, all regurgitating the “Trump supporter” claim, all quoting extensively from Celli’s Facebook page, and none mentioning his remarks about Hillary Clinton.

Update 3: The San Francisco Chronicle mentions Celli’s posts about Trump but not his comments about Clinton. It also quotes CAIR–an organization that has been helping the family of the San Bernardino terrorists–raising concerns about Trump.

Update 4: In wades Dean Obeidallah, the so-called-comedian-turned-CNN-contributor, writing at the Daily Beast, repeating all the same mistakes above, citing Celli as evidence “Trump has already radicalized Americans to commit and plot acts of violence right here on American soil.” Obeidallah, notably, links to CBS and to Travis Gettys at Raw Story, not to Celli’s Facebook page–another who is simply too lazy to do his own research:

The latest example came Sunday after William Celli of Richmond, California was arrested for building explosive devices that he allegedly planned to use to kill Muslim Americans. What inspired Celli’s actions? Well, we know that Celli’s Facebook page was filled with his posts praising Trump, even adding that he would follow Trump “to the end of the world.” This is not unlike social media posts pledging undying loyalty to ISIS type groups.Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

The opposition to President Obama’s “Climate Change/Global Warming” scam is growing daily.Ponzi Scheme

We have reported here several times about the expanding body of evidence that shows just how big a fraud the whole pseudo-science of “climate change” really is. Now, a new movie out destroys Obama’s pet “legacy” agenda – the “climate change” hoax.

CNS News has the story:

The producer of a new film debunking the notion that humans can control the Earth’s climate system called President Obama’s climate change agenda “pure astrology and witchcraft”.

“We have the White House senior staff saying we need these EPA climate regulations because of the increase in storminess,” Marc Morano, publisher of ClimateDepot.com, said in a recent interview with MRC-TV.

“Well, the White House is directly implying that regulations that won’t even affect global CO2 level, let alone temperature, let alone storminess – even if you buy their scientific claims – would, somehow, reduce storminess.

“That is pure astrology and witchcraft.”

“They’re hustling the public when they say they can control the Earth’s thermostat, they can control the level of storminess, through United Nations treaties and/or EPA climate regulations.

“This is the fallacy, if you will, the modern-day witchcraft of our time, to believe that the United Nations and the EPA can pass legislation to regulate the Earth’s climate,” Morano said.

This assertion goes along with what Senator Ted Cruz just revealed in his senate hearing about “climate change” – that it is more of a religion than it is scientific fact.

climate

But, that won’t stop President Obama from continuing to push for more “climate change” regulations.

He is all about carving out a legacy for himself – a legacy of world socialism where individual freedoms are a thing of the past.Reality

Global warming in the snowCNS News has more:

The producer of Climate Hustle said the movie features a historian who talks about the Settled-Science-600-LAwidespread belief in the Middle Ages that witches controlled the weather. Modern-day climate activists who blame global warming for a host of ills, including the rise of ISIS, are just as superstitious, he said.

“Interestingly enough, we have a current claim – just made by Bill Nye today, and we’ve had President Obama make it, John Kerry make it, and a whole host of other activists make it – that essentially ISIS was created by global warming. And they say this because there was a drought in Syria, and the drought created a lot of conflict, and ISIS rose from this in Syria, rose from the political conflict.Solid-Foundation-600-wLogo

“Well, first of all, you have to believe the Middle East was peaceful until carbon dioxide rose above 400 parts per million.

“Second of all, you’d have to believe that any kind of a drought is man-made, when in reality peer-reviewed studies show that droughts are on… a 60-year trend declining globally.

“Thirdly, you have to look at peer-reviewed studies which show that conflict increases during cold times and actually decreases during warm times. So actually, if there is global warming, we should have less conflict.

But, please don’t confuse the Obama Administration with facts; their minds have been made up on this for a long time.

Why These High School Girls Don’t Want a Transgender Student in Their Locker Room


waving flagReported by Kelsey Harkness / / December 21, 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://dailysignal.com/2015/12/21/why-these-high-school-girls-dont-want-transgender-student-a-in-their-locker-room/?utm_source=heritagefoundation&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=morningbell&mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRovuK%2FMZKXonjHpfsX74%2BokW6S2hYkz2EFye%2BLIHETpodcMTcZiPLzYDBceEJhqyQJxPr3NLtQN191pRhLiDA%3D%3D

The U.S. government pressured a high school in Palatine, Ill., to give a student who was born male, but identifies as a female, unrestricted access to the girls’ locker room. (Photo: Think Stock)

Speaking out, they knew, could make them the public face of a very private issue. It could lead their classmates to call them “bigots,” “insensitive,” and “homophobes.” But after seeing their high school back down to threats that the U.S. Department of Education would strip away federal funding, and watching school officials overrule their parents, a group of six high school girls in Cook County, Ill., decided to speak out.

On Dec. 7, before a crowded school board meeting packed with news media, they would tell the world why they don’t want a high school student who was born male, but identifies as a female, to use the girls’ locker room. They would tell the world why allowing a transgender student to see them in a state of undress would be an invasion of their personal privacy.They would explain why, at 15 and 16 years old, changing alongside biological women is already hard enough.

“It is unfair to infringe upon the rights of others to accommodate one person,” the six girls, in a joint statement, told an audience of at least 500.

“Although we will never fully understand your personal struggle,” they said, addressing the transgender student, “please understand that we, too, all are experiencing personal struggles that need to be respected.”

151216_trans_quote1

Palatine, a well-off suburb of Chicago, is the first district in the country to be found in violation of civil rights laws on transgender issues. By forcing the transgender student—known in the media as “Student A”—to use a separate locker room, the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights ruled that Township High School District 211 had discriminated against the student “on the basis of sex.” The finding came as the result of a lengthy investigation, triggered by a lawsuit filed by Student A’s parents.

To resolve the findings—and to avoid the Department of Education’s threats of losing federal funding—the school board changed its policies to allow Student A into the girls’ locker rooms, so long as the student changed behind newly installed “privacy curtains.” Those curtains, the six girls said, shield Student A from personal insecurities, but they leave the rest of them uncomfortably exposed.

‘Still Anatomically a Male’

According to the Department of Education’s investigation, Student A began transitioning to a female in middle school. The student was diagnosed with gender dysphoria and currently receives an “ongoing course” of hormone therapy.

151216_trans_gender-dysphoria

But some girls at the high school say Student A has not fully transitioned, which makes some of them uncomfortable sharing a locker room.

“What bothers me is the fact that this student is still anatomically a male,” a 16-year-old sophomore told The Daily Signal on the condition of anonymity. “If the student had already undergone surgical procedures, this would be another story entirely, but as it stands I just don’t feel comfortable with it.”

A 15-year-old told The Daily Signal “it just doesn’t feel right.”

“I know Student A poses no harm to me, but it just doesn’t feel right knowing someone with male anatomy is in the bathroom with me,” she said, adding:

“I have nothing against Student A and would be her friend if I knew her better, but when it comes down to it, I don’t feel right changing in the same room as a transgender student. The locker room is already filled with so much judgment, and I barely feel OK changing in front of my naturally born girl peers.”

A third student, a 16-year-old sophomore, expressed frustration.

“[W]e are supposed to accept this and feel like nothing really is happening, but the fact of the matter is that this did get pretty big and now we have someone with male genitals in our girls’ locker room when we are changing,” she said.

151216_trans_quote2

The Daily Signal spoke with five girls who attend the same high school as Student A, four of whom oppose the student’s use of their locker room and one who supports it.

The Daily Signal also spoke with parents and the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, which represents Student A in the lawsuit. What became clear is that neither side is pleased with the final agreement the district reached with the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, suggesting that public schools are not sure how best to deal with the difficult issues surrounding transgender students’ use of gender-specific facilities.

151216_trans_map_v2

Privacy in the Locker Rooms

The Department of Education’s investigation into alleged discrimination found that “the district honored Student A’s request to be treated as a female in all respects except her request to be provided access to the girls’ locker rooms.” This included granting the transgender student “unlimited” access to the girls’ bathrooms and allowing the student to play on the girls’ sports teams.definetly

In lieu of granting access to the girls’ locker rooms, the school at one point installed a bank of lockers in a private bathroom and encouraged the student to invite friends who were comfortable changing there to move their lockers. This was meant to avert Student A from being forced to change alone. Student A wasn’t happy with the setup and sought equal access to the locker area because “she wanted to be a girl like every other girl,” the Department of Education’s report said.Bull

But on this front, the school administration wouldn’t budge.

The school originally held its ground based “not only on Student A’s rights and needs, but on the privacy concerns of all students,” the Department of Education noted in its report.

That all changed Nov. 2, when the school received the report saying if it did not change its policies to allow Student A into the girls’ locker rooms, Picture2151216_trans_quote3

Title IX is the federal law that bans discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program. Experts disagree whether the law applies to transgenders’ use of separate facilities, although courts in Pennsylvania and Virginia ruled it does not. Both those cases are being appealed.

To avoid charges of discrimination, District 211 reached an agreement with the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights. In it, the school promised to provide Student A access to the girls’ locker room throughout the duration of the student’s time there.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, District 211 receives more than $5 million in federal funding each year.

The federal agency and Illinois school district reached the deal “based on Student A’s representation that she will change in private changing stations in the girls’ locker room,” the report said. Since Student A’s use of the privacy curtains is non-binding, legal experts say it is not clear what would happen if the student decided to change out in the open.

But even if Student A does abide by the arrangement, those who oppose the student’s use of the girls’ locker rooms say they’re still uncomfortable with the settlement.

“When she’s walking in and out of the privacy curtain, what happens when you’re in a state of undress?” a sophomore on the lacrosse team asked rhetorically, adding:

“Then she is fully exposed to everything in the locker room. That was my main concern with the privacy curtain. It’s not like there’s a curtain around her face, it’s not like she’s not looking at everything around her.”

To accommodate girls who “wish to be assured of privacy while changing,” the district agreed to install additional private changing stations inside the locker rooms. Those critical of the compromise say the school is giving Student A “special treatment.”you think

“I will always be respectful to Student A and will treat her like I would anyone else I know,” the 15-year-old sophomore told The Daily Signal. “We all have to deal with inconveniences that we have to deal with, and I don’t feel as though someone should gain special treatment over me and all other naturally born girls.”AMEN

“I can’t say that I understand [Student A’s feelings], but there are so many other people that you have to consider despite yourself,” another student added.

151216_trans_quote4

When the school board voted 5-2 in favor of the agreement, members made clear that the deal applies only to Student A and is not a district-wide policy. To accommodate Student A during off-campus sporting events, the Department of Education will require District 211 to provide access to girls’ locker rooms “in a manner consistent” with the home high school.

If locker rooms don’t already have them, this could mean installing privacy curtains inside all those locker rooms.

‘It’s What’s on the Inside That Counts’

Lauren Gregory, a 17-year-old attending the same high school as Student A, sees the situation differently. Gregory, who had no qualms going public with her name, said she believes those against Student A’s use of the girls’ locker rooms are more concerned with the “principle of being transgender rather than the locker room thing.”

“I know a lot of people are talking about privacy, and there’s been a lot of talk about anatomy … [but] the things that we value most in life are not physical,” Gregory said, adding:

“Everyone tells your kids when you’re growing up, don’t worry how you look, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. I think I really carry that with me still, and I think that if someone feels a certain way and they feel like they’re in the wrong body, then I don’t have a problem with it. I think they have the right to become whoever they should be.”More Liberal Gibberish

151216_trans_quote5

Gregory agreed that girls already feel uncomfortable changing in the locker rooms—some even change in bathroom stalls to prevent other girls from seeing their bodies, she said. But Gregory believes that transgender students face similar insecurities and therefore are “not going to flaunt it or use it for bad things.”

“I know that these people who want to change their gender, they truly do not like the way that they are—the way that they were born—they don’t like the anatomy that they have, and they’re not going to flaunt it or use it for bad things,” she said. “They don’t even want it. They want to change it.”Delusional Mental Illness Gibberish

‘Lynching the Board’

The ACLU of Illinois represents Student A in the lawsuit against District 211.

In an interview with The Daily Signal, Ed Yohnka, director of communications and public policy for the organization, said the girls who spoke out deserve “a lot of credit” for attempting to be “sensitive and yet show their concerns the best way they could.”

However, Yohnka said, “The concern that is being raised on the part of these students is not the concern that actually arises in the use of the locker rooms.” He suggested that girls don’t fully disrobe for physical education and sporting events.

“This is not an instance in which she intends to be immodest or provocative in any way, shape, or form,” Yohnka said of Student A. “If one actually reads the findings from the [Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights], what they reveal is that, despite the reputed claims of the administration, students don’t fully disrobe in the locker rooms that she’s seeking access to.”More Liberal Gibberish

Multiple girls who spoke with The Daily Signal disputed that, saying they undress in the locker room for various sporting events, including lacrosse. They added that most sports teams share the same locker room.

“It’s a misguidance people have about high school girls not changing their entire clothes,” the lacrosse player said.

Students say showering hasn’t been an issue in this case because of the way the PE and sports programs work, although the school has a swim requirement that could affect future cases.

The ACLU’s Yohnka said the concern about Student A’s anatomy is simply “hysteria” created by the school administration.

“This administration has gone on television and talked about our client’s anatomy,” Yohnka, criticizing the school’s decision to go public with the negotiations, told The Daily Signal. “If they had done this to any other student in this district, the parents would be there lynching the board.”Hate Merchants

Reached by The Daily Signal, a spokesman for District 211 officials said they would let previous statements and actions speak for themselves.

In October, when Superintendent Daniel Cates went public with the complaint filed with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Right, he put out a statement defending the administration’s original position of limiting Student A’s access to the girls’ locker room. In a message published in a newsletter, Cates wrote: “District 211 has supported—and continues to support—transgender students and their families while always balancing the rights and concerns of all students we serve.” (The full message is below.)

Screen Shot 2015-12-18 at 1.18.54 PM

Some parents in District 211 told The Daily Signal that the school should have made the complaint public earlier than October so that the community could have been more involved in the school’s formulation of policy.

“We just want to decide this as a community first, instead of just quickly responding to the government, who has no business telling us what to do at a local level, especially on this,” Vicki Wilson, a mother of a sophomore, told The Daily Signal.AMEN

Wilson has been active in the debate and is a member of the group D211 Parents for Privacy.

Yohnka suggested that the ACLU would have preferred that the school administration had reached a final agreement with the Department of Education before making the dispute public.

“I’m not denying for a moment that they shouldn’t have shared a resolution, but I think there’s a way to, first of all, reach a resolution first,” Yohnka said. “At the time that they had made their announcement, they were still negotiating with [the Department of Education.] … It created this frenzy around all this as opposed to simply announcing we’ve reached a settlement, this is what it is, this is what it entails and really being prepared to do the educational piece.”Picture2

He added:

“One of the things they might have thought to do was to use this moment as an opportunity to educate everyone involved in the community, in the school, et cetera, about these particular issues, but of course instead they decided to go out and engage in what really was a cynical public relations campaign in which you had a grown man on television talking about a young woman’s body.”Hate Merchants

The dispute is far from over, and if another transgender student comes along, the high school might have to address the situation again.

“The school district says at the end of the day that they’re still going to limit unfettered access to locker rooms based on anatomy, which fundamentally still misunderstands the notion of what it means to be transgender,” Yohnka said. “The anatomy in some ways scientifically is the least important indication of gender identity that there is, and yet they seem to be relying so heavily on it.”What did you say 06.jpg

To avoid facing the same problem, lawmakers in Illinois are considering addressing the issue at the state level.

“This is a push by the federal government to bully local units of government into adopting these kind of policies,” Illinois state Rep. Tom Morrison, a conservative Republican who has three children in the area, told The Daily Signal.

“This patchwork of policies is making it very confusing for parents and students and visitors to these schools,” Morrison said. “It would be helpful to have some guidance and guidelines that establish clear boundaries for bathroom and locker room policy.”

Emergency Meeting

In early December, the District 211 school board called an emergency meeting to reconsider its decision to change its original position and instead allow Student A full access to the girls’ locker rooms. The meeting drew a large crowd, with students and parents telling The Daily Signal that people came from all over the state. Sources attributed the high attendance to groups such as the ACLU that advocate on behalf of transgender rights. Before the meeting, those groups sent out press releases telling members their support was needed. One ACLU press release read:

There were many supportive voices at the board meeting last week. However, the opponents to fairness made up the majority of speakers. We’d like to see more supporters turn out on Monday and could use your help. If you are able to attend or otherwise want to help out, please email us.

Parents and students said they were frustrated to see the situation evolve from addressing the specific situation of Student A to a larger debate on transgender issues.

“It was kind of sad to see a bunch of people who didn’t care about the student; they just cared about getting their own agenda in place, and then they left,” the sophomore lacrosse player told The Daily Signal.

“It was very interesting to see,” she added. “It was very eye-opening about the world of politics.”

That day, the sophomore didn’t just learn a lesson in politics. She learned that speaking out about sensitive issues didn’t have to be so scary.

“I’m only a sophomore … my face will forever be known as the one who spoke out against Student A,” the student said of her concerns for the future. “I was worried I was going to ruin my time at my high school.”

151216_trans_quote6

When asked what she was so worried about, she said she and her friends feared being called “bigots, insensitive, inhumane, discriminatory, homophobic.” “There are so many,” she said of the labels.

But to her surprise, school the next day was largely the same. Those who disagreed with her comments still treated her with respect.

Disagreement is not discrimination,” she said.

“I think that’s something that’s important for adults to recognize—that we need to be loving and concerned and care for each other even if we don’t agree sometimes.”ATTA GIRL

Commentary: Stop Making Excuses for Islam


waving flagDecember 21, 2015 A Commentary By

What is the number one refrain from the Muslim community?

Before I answer that, if I may go off topic – is there any wonder why our country has become so dysfunctional – so segregated. It seems everyone is part of their own “community,” and as a result pledges allegiance to that community in lieu of the United States. It seems the only ones who don’t, and don’t dare, are whites.

Sorry about that. It’s been a pet peeve of mine.

Anyway, the answer to the question is, “That Is Not Islam.” There is a shooting – that is not Islam – a bombing – not Islam – an honor killing – not Islam – mistreatment of women and homosexuals – not Islam.Islam is NOT

And it’s not just Islamic clerics and academics who rush to the aid of their religion. The media does the same. Even before the dust settles, left-wing media and politicians proclaim, “that it is not Islam.”

The incident doesn’t even need to be a tragic event. It could be something relatively minor, like say, a Muslim cab driver refusing a fare due to his religious beliefs.

Let me first say that if one’s religion precludes one from doing his or her job, one should find another field of endeavor. But for whatever reason, a lot of cabbies are Muslim and because of this, these incidents are fairly common.

Muslim cab

 

In 2006 there was a big dust-up in Minneapolis over Somali cabdrivers refusing to transport passengers with alcohol, claiming adherence to Islam. Even passengers with a simple bottle of wine purchased at an airport duty-free shop are refused service. “If you are a cab driver and a practicing Muslim, you can’t carry alcohol,” said Idris Mohamed, an adjunct professor of strategic management at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul.

Burdened by political correctness and, “Instead of forcing them to ferry passengers, the airports commission proposed putting colored lights on top of cabs to indicate which ones will carry alcohol, a compromise worked out in discussions ongoing with the Muslim American Society of Minnesota.” Luckily that idiotic plan was scuttled after the commission received thousands of angry e-mails.

However, every once in a while one of the Muslim cabbies is brought to justice (kind of) as was the case recently of a Muslim taxi driver refusing to, “let a woman ride up front with him as her family piled into his yellow cab at Penn Station – later claiming that his religion forbids him from being that close to a female stranger. The woman asked whether there was a problem, and all Drammeh [the driver] would say is that her husband could sit up front but that she was not welcome.”

The woman filed a sex discrimination case against the driver. Judge Laura Fieber found against the cabby guilty and said, “That his religion did not allow him to sit next to a woman is not an acceptable defense…” The city of New York fined the Muslim driver $350 and suspended him for all of one day. He was able to maintain his cab license and is still working.

Not surprisingly, a Muslim academic excused the driver. Hossein Kamaly, a Middle Eastern studies professor at Barack Obama’s alma mater, Columbia University said, “There are some Muslims who wouldn’t be comfortable with that and some would. He’s an older man and probably an immigrant, so it’s closer to the way he was brought up.” And evidently that makes it all okay.

Now, you already know what I’m going to say, but I’m going to say it anyway. Imagine a white Christian cab driver refusing a fare because he is homosexual or telling a black woman she can’t sit up front but her white friend can. Think that cabby might be given more than a paltry fine and a slap on the wrist one day suspension? Maybe something just short of the death penalty.

I am so weary of the excuses made for this “religion.” I could understand if a relative few misinterpreted a meaning or two, but we’re talking about millions worldwide. They can’t all be wrong. How is one supposed to interpret a book riddled with passages like, Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”was

HEY, CNN & FOX: How Is A White Teen Girl BURNED ALIVE By 17 Black Thugs NOT News?

“If it bleeds, it leads.”

Before we switched to the 24 hour news cycle, the formula really was that simple.  The most tragic, gruesome news was always the Big Story. Earthquake, plane crash, that annoying boy band does a reunion tour. You know, the real tragic stuff.

There was more airtime to fill. Instead of just the reporting the news they gave more attention to how their wall-to-wall coverage could let them shape public opinion about it.

When selecting news stories they report, notice their story-telling angle. Seriously, it’s not about events, so much as story telling. There are heroes, villains and victims at every turn. And — shocker — the villains tend to always be people their beloved Democrats oppose or vilify.

This has nothing to do with the fact that they all practically swooned with each Democratic electoral victory, or any tingles up Chris Matthews’ leg, or even the fact that a former Clinton “White House Communications Director” went on to be chief anchor at ABC news. Impartial coverage. Of course not.

So how does one tell the news when you are trying desperately not to tarnish the record of the party you used to work for? Tell a story that upholds the White House narrative. Splinter America into small groups, to play one against the other. Portray “target demographics” as victims which can then be easily exploited by the next nominee.The Great Divider

Barack Obama and George Zimmerman, for example each have one white parent.  But news (or Obama himself, for that matter) never emphasizes Obama’s maternal heritage. It doesn’t propel the narrative forward. Zimmerman was different. Because they had already cast him in the role of villain, he was described “white hispanic” on CNN.

They will ignore real stories with actual victims and instead give wall-to-wall reporting on a hunger strike by a pampered millionaire activist. If you are looking for real black victims you might read the obits on any long weekend in Chicago. I’d say “news”, but it apparently their deaths aren’t newsworthy enough to #matter.The Leftist Propagandist

It isn’t hard to prove their hypocrisy. Would it be newsworthy if a 19 year old black girl in Mississippi was minding her own business at a gas station surrounded by rednecks, and burned to death? Because, a year ago in Mississippi, 19 year old Jessica was dragged away and killed.

Her name was Jessica Chambers. Surely you know her story, saw a hashtag campaign in her memory. #JusticeForJessica or something like that?

No. And could that be because Jessica was accosted by a gang of 17 black thugs? And — one other detail –she happened to be white? Justice is supposed to be blind, and not biased. And so is our cowardly, politically-inbred media.

When you report a single broken window in Texas as a “hate crime”, but can’t be bothered to raise the issue of a 19 year old girl burned alive by 17 men? There’s a name for that… journalistic malpractice.

Couldn’t you even see fit to file the story under #WarOnWomen? You are pathetic: the whole lot of you. And you are exactly why the public and the New Media will not shed a single tear at your collective extinction.


Here is the initial report of the arrests that have happened in the past week:

SEE ALSO: BREAKING: 17 Black Thugs Arrested for Burning White Girl Alive…The MSM Is SILENT

The FBI has rounded up 17 black gang members that we in connection with the murder of Jessica Chambers in Mississippi. She was a white 19 year old girl that had disappeared from a gas station while she was filling up her car with gas; her body was found burning just a few miles from the station. The thugs doused her with gasoline and then burned her alive.

Even though this happened more than a year ago, the mainstream media was covering it non-stop…oh, wait, just kidding. There was little to no coverage about this story. Now, especially because there are 17 black thugs that have been arrested, we really aren’t going to hear squat about it.

This is just another example of another White life that doesn’t matter to the media, and certainly not to the idiot residing in the White House.

PANOLA COUNTY, Miss. — The FBI spent the morning rounding up suspected gang members.

There is a total of 17 people facing charges under Operation Bite Back.

Nine people were picked up Tuesday.

The others were already in custody on other charges or had been arrested under this operation and bonded out.

JESSICA CHAMBERS: Teen Murdered Immediately After Local Blacks Called For Rape & Burning Of White Women

The truth about murder and race in Mississippi may prove reducible to black and white after all, as with fifty years ago in the infamous “Mississippi Burning” case.  Breaking, bombshell social media evidence in the Jessica Chambers case suggests the dynamic is reversed, but similar.

In trying to follow and sort out the details surrounding the grisly immolation death of the white former cheerleader two weeks ago, one encounters a cast of very shady characters a country mile long and wide, with the sordid backstory of small-town police corruption in Panola County, and a troubled family tale, all of it murky and convoluted almost beyond belief.

Nailing the actual guilty party, however, could turn out to be not all that complicated.  That’s because some black terrorists in the victim’s immediate circle have left a rather obvious trail of specific, racially-oriented murder threats.

For readers familiar with the concept of Occam’s Razor, what seems to be an incredibly tangled mystery might instead just fit the boilerplate template of what I’m calling Occam’s race war.Leftist monster race

One week before, and on just the day before Jessica Chambers was carjacked and burned to death, certain blacks among her intimate circle and acquaintance were involved in Facebook exchanges wherein calls for the rape and burnings of white women and children, especially the families of white police officers, were posted.  

Although not a police officer himself, Jessica Chambers’ father is an employee of the Panola County sheriff’s department, in the vehicle maintenance section.

You’ll need to grab a cup of coffee or an energy drink to slurp on, while you try to get a grip on what follows.

In the first Facebook comment in question, on November 30th, a woman using the name “Teapooh Itiswatitis Latrice” reacts to a fake news story carrying the headline “Cop Shoots 1Yr Old Black Baby After Mistaking Pacifier For Gun.”

“Teapooh,” apparently not being very bright, looks to have shared the story without realizing it was actually absurd satire, typical of incendiary internet hoax sites.  In sharing the bogus article, “Teapooh” typed the comment, “Somebody need to rape all his kids in front of him then sit(sic) the house on fire an watch them burn….i bet he was a white man SAD”

She shared it via the Facebook timeline of a woman named Sandy Rudd (now please bear with me for a minute while I outline some crucial connections before giving you the rest of the specific, criminal threat).

Sandy Rudd is the aunt of Bryan Rudd, Jessica’s abusive, criminal ex-boyfriend and local gang member.  Sandy, who gave the false name of  “Cassandra Market” to a reporter in an interview, is herself alleged to be a member of at least one notorious criminal gang —  she denies it, even though at least one picture of her has surfaced showing her making gang signs in a group picture with others, all of them defiantly throwing gang signs.

Sandy Rudd acknowledges that she is the one at the gas station who asked Jessica Chambers for a cigarette, when Jessica is seen on the store surveillance video walking over to someone who is off-camera.

Jessica lived with Bryan Rudd and his mother, Theresa Rudd Fleming, for two years in the period leading up to her murder, before a brief stay in a Christian-run rehab/shelter for troubled women.  Bryan Rudd has since moved away, to Iowa.

Now get this:  “Teapooh” is, according to the “hacktivists” who have accessed various social media accounts of the people involved, actually Teanna Rudd, the wife or live-in girlfriend of a man named Brejuan Buyers.

Brejuan Buyers is the man seen on the gas station’s surveillance video with the gas can in the hours just prior to Jessica being burned over 98% of her body.  He rode with Sandy Rudd in her car to the gas station, on that same night the murder victim is seen at the store — while he is filling the gas can at the pump — only 90 minutes before she is found burned.

“Teapooh” made more than just that one murderous comment on Facebook.  On the day before Jessica’s murder, on December 5th,she shared a video via someone posting as “Derrick Jaxn” (Jessica’s last word, uttered to a first responder, is reported to have been “Eric” or “Derrick”).  The post was accompanied by her comment, “Somebody needs to rape all they(sic) kids in front of them then set them on fire there(sic) learn then white bitches need to be dead”

The clock is ticking, and the FBI was brought in to work on the case as of a few days ago.  Many persons of interest have been interviewed, and no arrests have been made.

Brejuan Buyers, the gangsta “gas can man,” can also be seen in two homemade videos here and here, getting high and hurling angry obscenities at whoever watches.

Incidentally, just because whichever authority initially declares some person to have been interviewed and “cleared” doesn’t necessarily mean that they won’t be implicated later on, upon further investigation/developments.

Gas station “owner” Ali Alsanai, about whom I’ve previously written, has now been said by the local District Attorney to be not officially suspected of any direct involvement in the case.  However he remains a very suspicious figure in all of this, to those who pay close attention to his story’s inconsistencies, his body language, outward displays, mannerisms, and deceptive speech patterns (for one thing, honest people don’t constantly use the phrase “to be honest with you” when answering questions).  In spite of his openly flashy gangsta-jihad persona, he’s definitely covering up some kind of illegal activity in and/or around the store.

In one interview, Alsanai blatantly and very casually contradicts himself on timeline details, and says that pictures of himself posing with powerful guns are “photoshopped.”

At the 11:48 mark of that same interview video, the reporter asks him about the small bags being dealt out to people from inside and in front of the store by a black woman (seen carrying and handing out the packets on the CCTV recording on the night of the murder).  Alsanai has claimed that the bags contain “chicken” — some say “chicken” is street slang for methamphetamine or cocaine.  Yet when the interviewer brings them up as supposedly being “chicken,” Alsanai completely blows the straight face he’d been making an attempt to maintain, and starts laughing, obviously breaking up at how preposterous a lie he is telling.

Just prior to her demise, Jessica Chambers is reported by numerous sources as having been trying to leave the gang and move on with her life, and had been telling people she was planning to write a book about having survived the gang lifestyle.   She is also reported to have been in an altercation with someone at the same gas station a week before her murder.

Many blacks and even some whites on social media are accusing Jessica’s father of her murder, for no other reason than her having intimate relationships with dangerous and abusive black men.

After police officers Darren Wilson and Daniel Pantaleo were recently exonerated by grand juries in the deaths of black criminals Michael Brown and Eric Garner, and when George Zimmerman was acquitted last year in the Trayvon Martin case, blacks rioted, looted, burned, and murdered random whites, just as they did after the initial acquittals of the white cops in the Rodney King case in 1992.  It’s plain to every honest person that blacks wantonly and savagely attack and murder whites all the time throughout the country, often for no reason at all except the thrill of racially-motivated malicious mayhem.  Particularly, we have just seen and heard Michael Brown’s mother’s boyfriend, repeat felon Louis Head, violently screaming “burn this bitch down!!!” over and over again, accompanied by blacks rampaging, burning, looting, and attacking — sometimes fatally, with hammers or other deadly means — random, innocent whites in St. Louis and elsewhere.

Speaking of Louises, Farrakhan just recently stood before a crowd of cheering blacks at a prominent Maryland college and renewed his nationwide public exhortations for blacks to mass-murder whites, whenever and wherever.

In philosophy and problem solving, there’s the principle of reasoning known as Occam’s (or Okham’s) Razor, which goes like this:  Among multiple alternative explanations, all of which require various assumptions in order to arrive at possible solutions, often the simplest and plainest answer — involving the least number of assumptions — turns out to be the right one.

So, we have local black gang associates posting terror threats on social media — threats of murder, by burning, directed at the women and children family members of white police employees — immediately before the murder, by burning, of the white teenage daughter of a local police department employee.  Plus, the killing took place only minutes after the victim was seen on video at the same location as the husband or boyfriend of the person who posted the threats, as he was filling a handheld can with gasoline.

The entire case could simply be one more incident in the modern, one-sided race war of black on white; a war which is never talked about in the mainstream media.  Or, it could be more complicated than just black and white.

The evidence so far suggests that, despite the murkiness of elements and complicated roster of suspicious players, the truth in Courtland, Mississppi might come with the simplest and most obvious explanation.

Expect things to blow wide open very soon.  The blogosphere’s best and the brightest are all over this caper like George Zimmerman on a Chipotle burrito bowl.

Texas School District Approves Arming Teachers, Even Provides the Handguns


waving flag12.21.2015 News, Reported by Tiffany Gabbay

URL of the original posting site: http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/tx-school-district-approves-arming-teachers-even-provides-handguns

After every mass-shooting that takes place on a school campus, the public asks why educators are not allowed to be armed in order to protect themselves and their students in the event of an attack.

The world has changed, and so has the superintendent’s opinion on the matter. One school district is now finally answering that call.

On December 16, the Keene, Texas school board voted not only to allow teachers to be arm themselves in the classroom, but to provide them with the actual handguns as well. 

<!–_rv(“readvid”, “truthrevolt.org”);–>

According to Fox 5, Keene ISD members “approved a policy that would allow a few select staff members inside its four campuses to carry a gun.” The names of those who will be carrying are being withheld, but the guns they carry will be “provided by the district.”

The district will decide which teachers to arm out of a pool of those who submit their names as wanting to carry a gun.

Superintendent Stephens said forethought has already been given to the conditions under which guns should be carried, including which teaching situations are better suited than others for armed faculty members. In light of this, he said parents who have expressed concern that a student may take a gun away from a teacher are worrying about a scenario that will not happen. Stephens said, “[Teachers] involved with kids in that level will not be those who are selected to carry the gun.”

The move was supported by Keene Independent School District superintendent Ricky Stephens, who Breitbart reports first opposed the idea of arming teachers when he was hired three years ago. Apparently he said that since the world has changed, so, too, has his opinion.

WASHINGTON —

In the latest Democratic presidential debate, oversimplification struck again. Hillary Clinton spoke of fixing “glitches” in President Barack Obama‘s health care law to address rising costs, skimming over deeper issues on matters of affordability and the Affordable Care Act. And in education, fancy dorms and football stadiums aren’t the big reason for higher college costs, as Bernie Sanders suggested.

A look at some of the statements Saturday night and how they compare with the facts:

CLINTON on rising premiums and out-of-pocket costs for the privately insured after enactment of Obama’s health care law: “I would certainly build on the successes of the Affordable Care Act and work to fix some of the glitches.”

SANDERS on his proposed single-payer health care system: “The average middle-class family will be saving thousands of dollars a year.”

THE FACTS: Obama’s law was mainly about expanding coverage for the uninsured, and even former officials of his administration say major work still has to be done on cost control. In other words, rising costs are more than “glitches.”

One of the health care law’s main brakes on costs — a tax on high-value workplace coverage — has been put on hold by the new federal budget deal. Clinton had called for complete repeal of that levy, known as the Cadillac tax. Many economists believe the tax would help keep costs in check by forcing people into leaner insurance plans.

Sanders says his plan for a government-run health care system along the lines of Canada’s and Western Europe’s would save money for families and taxpayers. But such a major transition would involve winners and losers, as well as new taxes in place of premiums.

When the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office looked at the concept back in the early 1990s, it concluded that a single-payer system had the potential to save money but that wasn’t guaranteed. Moreover, individuals would have less freedom to choose their insurance packages, a trade-off that not everyone would accept.

___Complete Message

SANDERS: “The cost of college education is escalating a lot faster than the cost of inflation. There are a lot of factors involved in that. And that is that we have some colleges and universities that are spending a huge amount of money on fancy dormitories and on giant football stadiums.”

CLINTON: “States have been disinvesting in higher education … So states over a period of decades have put their money elsewhere; into prisons, into highways, into things other than higher education.”

THE FACTS: Clinton comes closest to diagnosing the problem accurately. College expenses are unsustainably high, but luxurious dorms aren’t the big driver that Sanders portrays. Public universities are charging more because they receive less in state government support.

Demos, a left-leaning think tank, said in a May study that the decline in state funding accounted for 79 percent of tuition hikes between 2001 and 2011. Just 6 percent was due to construction costs.

Sanders would make up that lost government money by providing free tuition, paid for with a tax on financial transactions. Clinton would offer federal dollars to encourage states to do more and keep students from having to borrow. It’s unclear how either plan would control colleges’ costs, though.

___definetly

SANDERS, apologizing for his campaign improperly gaining access to Clinton campaign data, raised the possibility that Clinton’s campaign may have done the same thing. “I am not convinced that information from our campaign may not have ended up in her campaign,” he said.

THE FACTS: Sanders is speculating, at best. There’s no evidence so far that Clinton’s campaign has accessed Sanders’ voter lists.

During a conference call with reporters on Friday, Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, said he could “unequivocally tell you that no member of our staff stole data from theirs.” And the contractor that manages the campaign data for the Democratic Party, NGP-VAN, issued a statement Friday saying “our team removed access to the affected data, and determined that only one campaign took actions that could possibly have led to it retaining data to which it should not have had access.”

___

CLINTON: “Assad has killed 250,000 Syrians.”

THE FACTS: Clinton appears to be blaming the entire estimated death toll of the Syrian civil war on just one side: the forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Yet no matter how vicious his forces have been, deaths have come at the hands of all sides in the nearly 5-year-old multi-front civil war.

The Syrian conflict began with anti-government protests before spiraling into a war with many groups emerging in opposition to the brutal regime crackdown. Rebels in some of these groups are fighting and killing each other, in some cases with no involvement by Assad-backed troops.

The United Nations has estimated a death toll of 220,000 since 2011; other estimates are higher, and Clinton’s figure is roughly in line with them. But the death toll is attributable to all parties, not just to Assad.

___

SANDERS: “Middle class in this country for the last 40 years has been disappearing.”

THE FACTS: It’s no secret that the middle class is struggling. The costs of college, health care and housing continue to rise, while wages have barely budged for two decades. The Pew Research Center reported earlier this month that the majority of Americans are no longer “middle income.”

Things are not quite as dire as Sanders suggests.

Pew found the share of Americans that it defines as middle income — a family of three earning $73,392 — has slipped. It’s down to 50 percent of households from 61 percent in 1971.

More Americans are low income, but more are also upper income. “The closer look at the shift out of the middle reveals that a deeper polarization is under way in the American economy,” Pew concluded.

Pew defines the median upper income as starting at $174,625 — a lot of money, but hardly the billionaire class attacked by Sanders.

___

SANDERS: “One of the heroes who we should recognize in the Middle East is King Abdul II of Jordan. This small country has welcomed in many refugees.”

THE FACTS: With each new debate, the presidential candidates come closer to getting the Jordanian king’s name right.

Among Republican and Democratic contenders alike, King Abdullah II is considered an important figure in the struggle for stability in the Middle East. But darned if they can nail down his name.

Sanders said Abdul instead of Abdullah. Invoking the king again, he mumbled the name.

Still, that was an improvement from the Republican debate earlier in the week, when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie vowed: “When I stand across from King Hussein of Jordan and I say to him, ‘You have a friend again sir, who will stand with you to fight this fight,’ he’ll change his mind.”

King Hussein died in 1999.

Cartoon: An Omnibus Chistmas


waving flagCommentary By Glenn Foden / / December 18, 2015

PastedGraphic-3
Several Heritage Foundation researchers gave their reaction to the spending bill that was announced this week:

Early Wednesday morning, the House Rules Committee posted text for the Consolidated Appropriations Act of the 2016 fiscal year (FY). This $1.1 trillion spending package, known as the omnibus, shows Washington at its worst.

Lawmakers are being asked to sign off on 2,200 pages (with an additional 1,000 pages of explanatory materials), at the 11th hour, without having had sufficient time to analyze its contents.

The House plans to begin consideration of the bill on Friday morning, with final votes expected to come Friday afternoon before the House leaves town until Jan. 5. Exact timing of when the Senate will vote on the bill is unclear, but lawmakers are expected to wrap up consideration quickly and begin their vacation, perhaps as early as Friday night. In the meantime, another short-term continuing resolution will be necessary to avoid a government shutdown at midnight.

The omnibus spending package, along with the tax extenders package, is full of provisions that were negotiated behind closed doors.

Heritage experts have combed through the bill’s numerous provisions and have provided their analysis on several key issues below:

Higher Spending

Once again, Congress has missed a critical opportunity to abide by the Budget Control Act spending caps and will not rein in wasteful and excessive spending. Base spending for the omnibus comes in at $1.066 trillion, the level agreed upon in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015. The defense and non-defense subcategories are at the agreed upon levels as well.

Overall, FY2016 base discretionary spending in the omnibus is $50 billion higher than the original Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA) levels.

The Bipartisan Budget Act set a maximum amount of discretionary spending, not a spending goal that had to be obtained. Since its enactment in 2011, the Budget Control Act caps set by the law have been exceeded each year.

With the Bipartisan Budget Act’s revised FY2017 spending level already set to bust the caps and be above the FY2018 cap, unless Congress starts making the tough spending decisions and abiding by the Budget Control Act, we are poised to continue this trend in the future.

War Account as Slush Fund

Funding for Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) is also at the $73.7 billion level agreed upon in the Bipartisan Budget Act, with defense receiving $58.8 billion and non-defense receiving $14.9 billion in FY 2016. The Bipartisan Budget Act increased Overseas Contingency Operations funding by $16 billion for each of the next two years.

The $8 billion designated for non-defense is likely to be used to cover base budget needs of the State Department rather than for continuing war efforts, once again using Overseas Contingency Operations money as a slush fund to increase non-defense discretionary spending up to the president’s requested level while defense remains underfunded.obama- Marxist tyrant

Even Higher Spending With Gimmicks

On top of the base discretionary funding and Overseas Contingency Operations funding agreed upon in the Bipartisan Budget Act, the omnibus also includes other above-the-cap spending for purposes such as disaster and emergency declarations and program integrity initiatives.

The bill includes $7.1 billion in disaster spending, which funds responses to presidential declarations for natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires, among other purposes.

The omnibus also provides $1.5 billion for program integrity initiatives that aim to combat Medicaid waste, fraud, and abuse. An additional $698 million is also appropriated to the Department of the Interior for emergency declarations. While some of these may be worthwhile and necessary purposes, these expenses (which recur almost every year) should be accounted for in the base budget. Funds in excess of the discretionary cap should be appropriated only when a true emergency or unforeseen disaster occurs. They should not be used as another gimmick to circumvent the spending caps.Propaganda Alert BS Alert

The omnibus also relies on Changes in Mandatory Programs (CHIMPs) to bust through the (already inflated) spending caps. These are changes to mandatory spending and entitlements that affect current-year budget authority and are treated as changes in discretionary spending for the purpose of scoring appropriations bills.

Sometimes these are real savings and may be used as an acceptable offset, but most of the time they are simply a way to increase discretionary spending in the current year with no real savings ever being realized.

The FY2016 Conference Budget Resolution took a first step in reining in CHIMPs spending by limiting the total amount that could be used as an offset over the each of the next four years. However, the agreement still allows for over $19 billion in additional spending this fiscal year. This is purely additional discretionary spending over the agreed upon budget caps. Moving forward, the use of CHIMPs should be eliminated completely.

—Justin Bogie, senior policy analyst, Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies

Sanctuary Cities Spared

The omnibus does not restrict Department of Homeland Security or Department of Justice grants to cities that resist the enforcement of federal immigration law, also known as sanctuary cities. Federalism gives local governments some latitude in choosing to oppose or not assist the federal government in enforcing immigration law, but the federal government does not have to reward or pay for the results of such policies.

No Additional Assurances on Vetting RefugeesDo you want

The omnibus also does not request additional assurances, intelligence assessments, or risk-based plans for the refugee process. If Congress is genuinely concerned about the vetting of refugees, then it should have requested additional information with which to oversee such vetting programs.

Similarly, while the bill makes small improvements to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), it also adds largely unhelpful and even counterproductive restrictions to the program by denying Visa Waiver Program to individuals who have travelled to Iraq, Syria, or other countries. Importantly, it also does not expand the program in order to reap additional security benefits.

Risk Corridor Bailouts Avoided

The bill also continues a provision to prohibit the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Program Management funds from being used to make payments under Obamacare’s risk corridor program. This will prohibit the administration from using undedicated funds to bail out unprofitable qualified health insurance plans in the individual and small group markets.Complete Message

Planned Parenthood Affiliates Still Fundedhow many body parts

The trillion-dollar budget deal would continue to allow hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funds, from both discretionary funding under Title X and from Medicaid reimbursements, to flow to Planned Parenthood Federation of America affiliates—despite recent disturbing videos showing Planned Parenthood officials haggling over the price of body parts of aborted babies.

No federal funds should be going to Planned Parenthood Federation of America or any of its affiliates or health centers. Disqualifying Planned Parenthood affiliates from receiving Title X family planning grants, Medicaid reimbursements, and other federal grants and contracts should not reduce the overall funding for women’s health care. The funds currently flowing to Planned Parenthood affiliates should be redirected to health centers that offer comprehensive health care without entanglement in abortion on demand. Members of Congress had the opportunity with the year-end funding bill to end both mandatory and discretionary federal funding of Planned Parenthood and end taxpayer entanglement with the largest abortion provider in the country, but they failed to do so.

Failure to Protect Conscience Rights

While long-standing pro-life riders are included in the omnibus, a much-needed policy to address serious conscience violations is missing from the spending bill.

In August 2014, the Department of Managed Health Care in California mandated that almost every health plan in the state include coverage of elective abortions, including those plans offered by religious organizations, religious schools, and even churches. The Weldon Amendment prohibits federal, state, and local governments that receive certain federal funds from discriminating against health care entities, including health care plans, that do not “provide, pay for, provide coverage of or refer for abortions.” While that policy has been included in appropriations bills since 2004 (including the current omnibus), enforcement of the conscience policy is left to the discretion of officials in the Department of Health and Human Services, which has a poor track record of moving quickly (if at all) on complaints. The Obama administration has so far effectively ignored requests to HHS for help obtaining relief from California’s mandate.Picture2

In response to this urgent problem, Congress should provide victims of discrimination the ability to defend their freedom of conscience in court, not leave them to wait on bureaucrats in the Obama administration. The Abortion Non-Discrimination Act would do just that. The act is currently part of the Health Care Conscience Rights Act, H.R. 940, a bill that would address other conscience issues in Obamacare.

More Bad Than Good on Energy Provisions

If you were to put a jelly bean for each energy provision on a two-sided scale, one side being good free-market provisions and the other being corrupt energy provisions, the bad side of the scale would be hitting the floor.

The good provision is a very good provision, indeed. Lifting the crude oil export ban would generate more jobs for Americans, supply the United States and the world with more affordable energy, and provide important geopolitical benefits for Washington and its allies.

But the numerous bad provisions waste taxpayer money and provide targeted tax credits to politically connected companies. They include:

  • A five-year extension of the wind production tax credit (PTC). The wind PTC, which has been around since 1982, artificially propped up an industry, advanced special interests, and allocated labor and capital away from more competitive uses in the marketplace.
  • A five-year extension of the solar investment tax credit (ITC), which companies can now take when they begin construction rather than when they start producing power. Solar companies would be better off in the long run without the ITC. They would understand their true price point to be competitive in the short and long run.
  • A ramp up in Department of Energy spending for renewables, energy efficiency provisions, fossil fuels, and nuclear. The Department of Energy has ballooned by subsidizing and forcing energy technologies into the marketplace. The private sector has demonstrated countless times that it is far better equipped than government to allocate resources and develop commercially viable technologies.
  • A handout for the oil industry. The legislation would provide a targeted tax credit for small, independent refiners and allow independents to exempt 75 percent of transportation costs when calculating their Section 199 manufacturing deductions. This is nothing more than obvious compensation for lifting the ban on crude oil exports. Further, the energy tax provisions in the omnibus speak to the need for the federal government to stop using the tax code to pick winners and losers for all energy sources and technologies.
  • A three-year extension of the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The massive amount of land owned and managed by the U.S. government has resulted in land mismanagement, stifled opportunities for recreation and resource production, and poor environmental stewardship. Reauthorizing the LWCF is a recipe for prolonging mediocre and often poor federal control of America’s land. Permanently eliminating the LWCF is recognition that improved economic growth and environmental quality are born not out of Washington, but in the states.

Absent from the text are provisions that would block the Obama administration’s climate change regulations, regulations that will drive up energy costs no climate benefit. Instead, the federal government has hundreds of millions of dollars to dole out internationally through the Climate Investment Fund and Strategic Climate Fund. Notably missing from the omnibus spending bill is a provision prohibiting spending on the Green Climate Fund.

This is no compromise, but instead a large extension of government intrusion in energy markets where it does not need to be.Ponzi Scheme

Failure on WOTUS (EPA Water Rule)

The omnibus bill fails to prohibit funding for the Environmental Protection Agency’s and Army Corps’ controversial “waters of the United States” rule, which would greatly expand the types of waters that could be covered under the Clean Water Act, from certain man-made ditches to so-called waters that are actually dry land most of the time.

In addition to this rule being an attack on both property rights and the states’ role in protecting the environment, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) just ruled that the EPA broke the law in developing it.

The policy problems and the agency overreach should have been more than enough to block funding for the rule. Both the House and the Senate have already passed different bills that would repeal the rule (the same bill still needs to be passed by both chambers). Attorneys general and agencies from at least 31 states are suing the federal government regarding the rule. Even environmental groups are suing.

If it somehow wasn’t a no-brainer to block funding for the water rule before, then it certainly should have been after the GAO’s opinion. The GAO found that the EPA violated the law when developing the rule by trying to inappropriately gin up support for the rule through improper lobbying activities and covert propaganda. Their illegal actions, according to GAO, were focused not just on the regulatory process, but also on encouraging opposition to legislation that would have blocked efforts to undermine the rule. The legislative process itself, and the work of many members of Congress, was itself being undermined by EPA’s actions. Yet Congress still allowed the rule to go forward. If Congress won’t use the power of the purse to block this rule, when will it ever use the power of the purse to block any rule?

Funding Barred for Unrelated Dietary Guidelines

Every five years, the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services issue dietary guidelines to advise the public on healthy eating. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) submitted its scientific report, which helps to inform the final guidelines, in February. Throughout the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee process, there has been a focus on non-dietary issues such as sustainability, climate change, and other environmental factors.

The omnibus bill does prohibit funding for guidelines that are not limited to nutritional and dietary information (Division A, Sec. 734). It would also direct the Secretary of Agriculture to work with the National Academy of Medicine to study the Dietary Guidelines process (Division A, Sec. 735). The problem, though, is that any new Dietary Guidelines, even if claimed to be based on nutritional and dietary factors alone, will have no legitimacy, because the process was dominated by environmental concerns, not dietary concerns.

Repeals Mandatory Country of Origin Labeling

The mandatory country of origin labeling (COOL) requirements for certain meat products has been the subject of significant controversy. Both Canada and Mexico have correctly alleged that COOL has a discriminatory effect on their livestock exports to the United States, violating trade obligations. COOL is merely a non-tariff trade barrier, having nothing to do with health or safety, which is supposed to provide consumers information.

Yet the government doesn’t need to impose such a requirement if consumers value such information; the market will respond accordingly. As it turns out, consumers don’t value this information. The World Trade Organization (WTO) has repeatedly agreed with Canada and Mexico. After just receiving WTO authorization, Canada and Mexico are about to impose over a billion dollars in retaliatory tariffs on the United States. The omnibus bill would repeal COOL before this costly retaliation is imposed on a wide range of industries (Division A, Sec. 759).

Small Steps on School Lunch Funding

The omnibus continues funding for the USDA’s new school lunch standards, which were implemented as part of the Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010.

However, these standards have been burdensome to schools and should not be funded. For example, a January 2014 report by the GAO shows that since the implementation of the new standards, participation in the school lunch program has declined, there has been an increase in food waste among students, and some schools have dropped out of the program at least partially due to the new standards.

The new standards have also imposed greater costs on schools, such that some have even have had to draw from their education funds to cover them.

The omnibus takes small steps in the right direction by

1) allowing states to exempt schools from the whole grain requirement if a state can “demonstrate hardship, including financial hardship, in procuring specific whole grain products which are acceptable to the students and compliant with the whole grain-rich requirements,” and by

2) prohibiting funds to go toward rules that would require a reduction in sodium in school meals until scientific research can establish that such a decrease is beneficial to children.

The decision of what children eat is best left to parents, not bureaucrats in Washington. Congress should prohibit any funding from going toward these costly and heavy-handed standards.

Congress Is at It Again With Tax Extenders

The tax extenders are a yearly exercise that Congress is long overdue to end. Lawmakers should go through the various policies in the package, extend those that are sound policy, and eliminate those that are not, all in a revenue-neutral manner. Once again, Congress did not follow this sensible approach.

To its credit, Congress made several policies permanent. Importantly, it made the Research and Development Credit, section 179 expensing for small businesses, and the exemption from subpart F income of active financing income permanent. These are all necessary policies, given the dilapidated state of the tax system. It will be a relief in future years that they are no longer set to expire.

The price of these permanent extensions was steep. Congress also made permanent the stimulus’ expansions of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), the Child Tax Credit, and the American Opportunity Credit. These permanent expansions increase spending by nearly $160 billion over the next 10 years. Congress should have offset this spending with spending cuts in other areas.

The bill also extends bonus depreciation, better called 50 percent expensing, for five years. It would have been better had Congress made it permanent, too, but a five-year extension is better than a two-year continuance.

Disappointingly, Congress also included a five-year extension of other policies that are not sound, including the New Markets Tax Credit and the Work Opportunity Credit. These policies are examples of Congress using the tax code to pick winners and losers. They should have been among the first extenders to be permanently excised instead of receiving an expanded extension.

The rest of the extenders get the at-this-point standard two-year extension. Since the extenders were expired for 2015, the two-year bill extends them retroactively for 2015 and through 2016. Congress will be back at this game either in the lame duck session at the end of 2016 or sometime in 2017.

Obamacare’s Taxes

A two-year moratorium on Obamacare’s medical device tax, for 2016 and 2017, is also included in the tax bill. It is a bad tax, but suspending it should not be confused with repealing Obamacare.

Strangely, the omnibus spending bill includes a two-year delay of the beginning of the Cadillac tax on high-cost health insurance plans from 2018 to 2020, as well as the delay of the tax on health insurers, and an extension of various alternative energy credits, including the production tax credit. The policies should not have been extended, especially since Congress did not adopt equivalent Obamacare spending cuts.

Delaying the start of the Cadillac tax was the wrong approachespecially since Congress did not adopt equivalent Obamacare spending cuts. Congress should instead use it as a pivot to capping the tax exclusion of employer-provided health insurance.

Even though it is long past time for Congress to end its practice of dealing with the extenders semiannually, it did make certain important policies permanent. That will make the extenders easier to deal with next time and lowers the revenue baseline for tax reform. These are steps in the right direction after years of standing still.
