Former CEO of Playboy
Blames Chicago’s Murder Rate
on Climate Change

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 2/1/2013 6:46:06 AM

Former CEO of Playboy magazine Christie Hefner appeared on MSNBC this morning to discuss gun control. When discussing gun violence in Chicago, Hefner went into a diatribe, explaining how climate change has increased temperatures, therefore leading to heightened levels of violence. Hefner works closely with the Center for American Progress. [video]

Comments:
Saw this yesterday morning on Morning Joe. Christie´s gone round the bend, a slice off the old fruitcake.

This is the entire article.

Playboy is tame by modern standards but I always got a kick out of Christie´s self-righteous blather over the years.

The topic may change but the silliness endures.

Being completely divorced from reality is a prerequisite for the modern Progressive/ liberal.

So there was never any violence or shootings in inner cites until climate change came along. Why hasn´t this affected other groups of people affected by it. There was a huge drought last year in the midwest and Texas and I don´t remember shooting sprees. Russia and China are having a brutal winter but killings haven´t gone up.

Maybe if he give everyone in Chicago a portable (solar fueled) electric blanket,the murder rate will go down.

And I´m sure Morning Joe, and all 600 viewers of PMSNBC agreed with her.
I am no longer civil to stupid "Warmers."
I used to try to patiently explain from a scientific standpoint, from a thermodynamic law standpoint, from an evidence standpoint why there is no AGW.
They don´t listen, deny the truth, put their fingers in their ears, and say "LaLaLaLa" so they don´t hear you.
My golden retriever is smarter.

I now tell Warmers directly that they are truly to stupid to talk to, and I refuse to waste my time with an idiot.

The only spec of truth in her statement is that hot, humid weather does bring out the worst in inner city denizens, thus a higher rate of violence. But it sure isn´t caused by my CO2 emissions.

Her dad´s testosterone-poisoning must have gone to her brain in utero.

Christie has not checked the stats that show that the strongest gun-control cities and States in America have the highest gun-crime rates, and the lowest gun-control States have the lowest gun-crime rates.

But Christie can´t be bothered with facts, that is clear. Her reasoning skills will clear up when she is mugged and without gun protection.

#5, I too no longer engage liberals in conversation or debate about global warming or anything political. I tried for years to "understand" their point of view or to get them to accept mine. It´s an exercise in complete futility. I now stop any and all political conversation with a liberal dead in its tracts. I simply refuse to be engaged, and I tell them why. They get the funniest look on their face, like something doesn´t compute. The smart ones (I know, I know) let it go. The more challenged keep digging. Never argue with a liberal unless you want to look into the face of insanity.

Obama Says Income Gap
Is Fraying U.S. Social Fabric
New York Times, by Jackie Calmes and Michael D. Shear    Original Article
Posted By: pineledger- 7/28/2013 6:29:16 AM     Post Reply
Galesburg,IL--In a week when he tried to focus attention on the struggles of the middle class, President Obama said in an interview that he was worried that years of widening income inequality and the lingering effects of the financial crisis had frayed the country’s social fabric and undermined Americans’ belief in opportunity. (Snip)“If we don’t do anything, then growth will be slower than it should be. Unemployment will not go down as fast as it should. Income inequality will continue to rise,” he said. “That’s not a future that we should accept.”

Carson Refuses To Live

Audacity: Renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson eloquently refuses to stay on liberalism´s black plantation. So, naturally, the left seeks his destruction. George Zimmerman´s prosecutors´ star witness, Rachel Jeantel — whose contentious, garbled testimony backfired badly — told CNN´s Piers Morgan of the jury that heard her, "They old. That´s old-school people. We in a new school, our generation." As she experiences her 15 minutes of fame, Jeantel would no doubt lump Benjamin Carson in with the "old-school people." But these two black Americans represent the different paths available to everyone in a free country, regardless of ethnicity.

President Obama is announcing for the umpteenth time he´s going to "pivot" to fixing the economy — as if that´s ever worked before, since it is he who broke it. That said, Obama will pivot to tiddlywinks if that´s what it takes to get out from under his mountain of scandals. (Snip)Here´s a fun fact: As a lawyer for the Washington law firm Wilmer Hale, Wilkins represented Rev. Wright´s Trinity United Church of Christ in 2007 when the IRS began asking questions about whether the tax-exempt church was too involved in political work for its most prominent member, Sen. Obama.

Still More Lies On ObamaCare

Trust: Why should anyone believe what the president says about ObamaCare? Last week he touted nonexistent rate cuts and rebate checks. And the White House now admits his promise about keeping your doctor was false. On Thursday, the president tried to shore up the ever-weakening support for ObamaCare by boasting about $100 rebate checks millions of Americans were supposedly getting in the mail thanks to the law´s restrictions on overhead spending by insurance companies. "Millions of Americans opened letters from their insurance companies," Obama said, and "were pleasantly surprised with a check." Not exactly.

Permits Soar to Allow
More Concealed Guns
Wall Street Journal, by Jack Nicas and Ashby Jones    Original Article

A growing number of Americans are getting permission to carry firearms in public—and under their clothes—a development that has sparked concern among some law-enforcement authorities. Applications for "concealed-carry" permits are soaring in many states, some of which recently eased permit requirements. The numbers are driven in part by concern that renewed gun-control efforts soon could constrain access to weapons, along with heightened interest in self-defense in the wake of mass killings in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo.

The Obama administration is assembling a shortlist of candidates to lead the Federal Reserve, in the expectation that chairman Ben Bernanke won´t seek reappointment when his second term at the central bank ends in January, according to people familiar with the matter. (Snip)Mr. Bernanke has left his mark on the U.S. economy with a wave of easy-money policies in response to the 2008 financial crisis, recession and sluggish recovery that followed. His successor will need to figure out how to pull those policies back. If the Fed changes policy too soon, it could undermine the recovery.

A prominent corporate lawyer in Chicago has been accused by an Illinois disciplinary board of charging the firm for phony expenses, including about $70,000 in taxi trips, $35,000 in sporting events and a Thanksgiving celebration at his country club.

Sanford, Fla--The screams are clearly coming from a distraught male, whose repeated cries for help end abruptly with a gunshot. What is not clear from a recording of a 911 call, however, is the identity of the screamer: George Zimmerman, the volunteer community watchman, or Trayvon Martin, the unarmed 17-year-old he killed that night. (Snip)One [expert witness] concluded that the voice was not Mr. Zimmerman’s; the other said it was very likely Mr. Martin’s. In an order released on Saturday, the judge in the case, Debra S.

Washington--Within days, the Supreme Court is expected to issue a series of decisions that could transform three fundamental social institutions: marriage, education and voting. (Snip)But a tension runs through the cases, one based on different conceptions of equality. Some justices are committed to formal equality. Others say the Constitution requires a more dynamic kind of equality, one that takes account of the weight of history and of modern disparities. The four major cases yet to be decided concern same-sex marriage, affirmative action in higher education and the fate of the Voting Rights Act of 1965,

If you wonder what kind of job Mel Watt would do leading the regulatory agency that controls Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, look no further than his pal Franklin Raines. No one would think of putting Raines, who in 2005 left Fannie´s helm under an ethical cloud, in charge of regulating Fannie or Freddie, together responsible for about 90% of all new mortgages. But Obama´s choice for that job is cut from the same cloth. Rep. Watt, whom the president has tapped to run the Federal Housing Finance Agency, is a lot like Raines, and not just because they´re both Democrats.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas.

Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.

Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. "Notably absent from the antipoverty efforts targeting families is an essential staple for the health of children, diapers," wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Megan Smith,
