If you live in flyover country, lay in a supply of popcorn and get ready to watch a continuing comedy drama being staged for your amusement by the progressives of San Francisco. The driving force is the classic dirty little secret of progressivism, greed and envy, and these deadly sins are amply on display in Baghdad-by-the-Bay these days.(snip)Yesterday, hundreds of SEIU members rallied in front of Twitter HQ to denounce the greed of the company that provides jobs and plenty of other tax revenue to assorted governments that employ SEIU members. John Coté reports for the SF Chronicle: City nurses [who

"Look for...the union label..."

Oh, wait, I gotta pee! [from the article about the homeless who used to relieve themselves freely around the formerly derelict building now housing Twitter]

Scientist confesses he made up
polar bear population estimates

The greatest scientific fraud in history is slowly but surely unraveling, and the breadth of the corruption revealed is stunning. As any good con man knows, and emotional appeal is necessary, and the warmists found their cuddly-looking icon of endangerment in the polar bear, an animal frequently chosen as stuffed toys for children to hug. Pictures of polar bears on ice floes, presumably doomed to death by drowning as the Arctic ice disappeared, were used to tug on the heartstrings of adults and children alike, in order to scare them into willingly handing over power over their economic destiny to

When one thinks of mass murder, Hitler comes to mind. If not Hitler, then Tojo, Stalin, or Mao. Credit is given to the 20th-century totalitarians as the worst species of tyranny to have ever arisen. However, the alarming truth is that Islam has killed more than any of these, and may surpass all of them combined in numbers and cruelty. The enormity of the slaughters of the "religion of peace" are so far beyond comprehension that even honest historians overlook the scale. When one looks beyond our myopic focus, Islam is the greatest killing machine in the history of mankind,

I´ve heard strangers say perhaps a dozen times that if the Native Americans had only kept control of the Americas, the environment would be in much better shape, but this is only half a truth. It isn´t so much that Native Americans were very good at taking care of the environment; it´s more that they were very bad at taking care of their children. There´s really only one thing standing between the human race and a healthy environment, and that thing is children. Everyone knows that the more children there are, the more animals we have to eat, the more clothing

Widespread Memorial Day Black Violence

Black Beach Week used to get all the glory: Every Memorial Day weekend, 300,000 black people gathered in Miami Beach to get their freak on. And also create a tsunami of violence, robbery, shootings, carjackings, vandalism, mayhem, noise and trash. But this year, many party-goers complained that Black Beach Week -- only reporters call it “Urban Beach Week” -- just wasn’t as much fun any more: Too many cops, tactical vehicles, helicopters, lights, towers, cameras, suspicion. Not enough chaos. Not to worry: The rest of the country picked up the slack. Black mob violence over the holiday weekend was reported in more

A key to understanding Barack Obama and his presidency may be found in a simple-minded character from a twenty-five year old movie. Truth can be stranger than fiction- and less enjoyable to experience. (snip)There are remarkable similarities between Barack Obama and the simple-minded Chauncey Gardiner. Both like to watch television. In Obama’s case, quite a lot. His knowledge of various television shows, many of them decidedly lowbrow, help gin up support for the first “pop culture president.” While he avoids discussions with both Republicans and Democrats about policy (or can appear to be like a deer frozen in headlights when discussing

   

 

  


 
Obama´s West Point Speech signals
a presidency in deep trouble
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 5/29/2014 9:52:12 AM     Post Reply
Yesterday’s speech to the graduating class of West Point by President Obama may be remembered as the signal that his presidency has entered a crisis of confidence, much as Jimmy Carter’s infamous “malaise” speech has gone down in history as marking a failed presidency. Not only was the content of the speech delusional (calling Russia “isolated” in the wake of a massive and historic gas deal with China that marks a major rapprochement between two powers hostile to the United States; claiming Ukraine as an example of the success of his coalition strategy), the delivery was wooden, as if Obama

Who needs the birthers when we have Barack Obama himself? His recent statement about the role of the U.S. Senate proves that he is a self-declared enemy of the United States Constitution and of its checks and balances on federal power. At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population. “Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has a new book out. In keeping with the adage “there is no such thing as bad publicity” the title will not be mentioned.(snip)on March 11, 1995, Johnny Chung and his PRC friends attended President Clinton’s weekly radio address after Chung handed a check for $50,000 made out to the DNC to Hillary’s chief of staff following a March 9 1995 photo op with the first lady. The PRC citizens accompanying Chung were given the photos, but not until they were vetted by the CIA officer on the White House staff. He remarked

Harry Reid’s nuclear option has caused a lot of damage -- and the worst is yet to come. (snip) Democrats have used the filibuster to check Republicans when they have been in power, and both Harry Reid and Barack Obama have publicly extolled the value of the filibuster as a key aspect of democracy. But then they decided it was an impediment to their power grab and threw it into the dustbin of history. Once that occurred, Reid and the Democrats went into overdrive to populate the federal courts with left-wing judges (who have lifetime tenure). Now the damage is becoming more

Slavery can be some sadistic thug standing over you, wielding a whip.(snip) Ancient Islam arose from a desert raider culture, which considered slaves taken in war to be legal. But long before Islam human beings enslaved each other, sometimes as individuals, and sometimes en masse. In the case of Boko Haram (meaning “books are forbidden”), they just stole 276 young Nigerian girls from their parents, right in front of the world media, citing Islam as their warrant -- and nobody in the world dared so say anything about the long history of Arab slave-stealing in Africa.

Straight away let’s address an issue that is very important in what follows: Eyewitness evidence is often very unreliable and hearsay evidence is often very unreliable. (snip) there are now enough supposedly single offender Obama era mass public shooting cases where there is evidence of multiple offenders that the probability is uncomfortably high that at least one such mass public shooting did, in fact, involve multiple offenders. Again, even broken clocks are right twice a day. Let’s begin with the Isla Vista shootings. Have a look at what eyewitness Michael Vitek had to say.

Wow, it’s finally happening. Democrats are catching on and turning on President Obama, at the moment off-the-record, but that won’t last for long if another midterm “shellacking” takes place in early November. Daniel Halper reports in The Weekly Standard. CNN´s John King reports that Democrats are privately calling President Obama "detached," "flat footed," and "incompetent." (snip) This is going to get very tricky for Democrats, since their black voter base, which accounts for roughly a quarter of their national vote, remains loyal to Obama. They m ay well see Democrats as stabbing the First Black President in the back

Maya Angelou, an author more revered than read, passed away at 86 on Wednesday. She is survived by her seven autobiographies. In addition to Angelou playing Boswell to Angelou’s Johnson, Angelou acted, wrote poetry, danced, and sang. Was she an actress, poet, dancer, or singer? People liked her politics, and, out of ideological solidarity, reflexively praised her talents in multitudinous endeavors. At her most irresponsible, she embraced Fidel Castro, Malcolm X, and Bill Clinton—a mistake for a lady of any age. (Snip) In this spirit, she insisted that others call her “Dr. Angelou” though she never obtained a college degree. The

President Obama said Thursday that he may have suffered from mild concussions while playing football in his childhood. "When I was young and played football briefly, there were a couple times where I´m sure that that ringing sensation in my head and the needing to sit down for a while might have been a mild concussion, and at the time you didn´t think anything of it," Obama said at a White House event designed to highlight the risks of sports-related brain injuries. Obama said his experience was common and underscored the need to "change the culture" around concussion injuries in sports,

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki was openly mocked by the assembled press corps Thursday after saying President Obama “doesn’t give himself enough credit for what he’s done around the world.” Associated Press reporter Matt Lee asked sarcastically whether he deserved 200 percent credit, while another one wondered for what “accomplishments” Psaki meant he deserves more praise. “For engagement initiatives like Iran, what we’ve done on Ukraine, efforts to dive in and engage around the world,” she said. “I mean, Russia has still annexed Crimea,” another reporter asked. “I mean, Iran — there’s ongoing negotiations,

Hillary Clinton offers a detailed account of the deadly attack on the American embassy in Benghazi — and a pointed rebuttal to Republican critics who’ve laced into her over the incident — in a much-anticipated chapter of her forthcoming book, “Hard Choices,” obtained by POLITICO. “Those who exploit this tragedy over and over as a political tool minimize the sacrifice of those who served our country,” Clinton writes in the gripping chapter, “Benghazi: Under Attack.” Casting doubt on the motivations of congressional Republicans who have continued to investigate the attacks, including with an upcoming House select committee, Clinton continues: “I

DENVER— Colorado´s Civil Rights Commission on Friday ordered a baker to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples, finding his religious objections to the practice did not trump the state´s anti-discrimination statutes. The unanimous ruling from the seven-member commission upheld an administrative law judge´s finding in December that Jack Phillips violated civil rights law when he refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple in 2012. The couple sued. "I can believe anything I want, but if I´m going to do business here, I´d ought to not discriminate against people," Commissioner Raju Jaram said. Phillips, a devout Christian who

President Obama will call on all American adults Friday to make a long-term commitment to mentoring black and Hispanic boys as part of his initiative to help young men of color succeed in school. Aides said Mr. Obama will review with his Cabinet Friday a report from a White House task force on his program called “My Brother’s Keeper,” which he launched in February. “It is important that all children have caring adults who are engaged in their lives,” the report states. “But too many young people lack this support. For example, roughly two-thirds of black and one-third of Hispanic children live

Four years and $12 billion later, her campaign to replace French fries and pizza with green pepper strips and Mexican turnip roots in school cafeterias has tanked. Kids in Kentucky said the food tasted like "vomit." Students in California were selling chips and candy bars on the black market.

Distinguished former CIA officer and author Robert Baer said on the BBC’s “Today” radio program Thursday morning that ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden has been in contact with the Russian government for the last seven years. “My suspicion is that the Russians were probably in touch with him in Geneva,” Baer said, speculating they first made contact in 2007 while Snowden was stationed in Switzerland with CIA. “I can’t prove it. But this was such a brilliant operation. And his landing in Moscow just makes old Cold War warriors like me very suspicious.” Baer also dismissed Snowden’s assertion on his first U.S. television

WASHINGTON — Feeling the weight of the world on his shoulders, a weary President Obama says his fondest dream is getting a chance to take a stroll by himself away from the White House. Obama — who rides in motorcades, jets on Air Force One and is under constant guard — says he’d take a solo hike across the National Mall, if only the Secret Service would give him the chance. “I would go take a walk,” the president said Friday on “Live with Kelly and Michael” when asked the one thing he’d like to do if only he could. “I would just

Lihue, Hawaii - A judge sentenced a Hawaii man to one year of probation and a $200 fine for making his son walk a mile home from school as a form of discipline. Judge Kathleen Watanabe called the punishment "old-school" and no longer appropriate, the Garden Island newspaper reported Thursday. Robert Demond of Kilauea said he picked up his son from school and asked about a matter that had been brought to his attention. When the son didn´t respond, Demond made him walk home to think about his actions. The age of the boy is unclear. Demond's attorney and a prosecutor didn't immediately respond to a request seeking
