Former Hippies Put in Horrible
Position of Rooting for F.B.I.

New Yorker, by Andy Borowitz

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 2/4/2018 7:13:50 AM

WASHINGTON —Former hippies across the United States have been put in the unbearable position of rooting for the F.B.I., hippies have confirmed. From Vermont to California, erstwhile hippies bemoaned a nightmare scenario that has forced them to side with a law-enforcement agency they have despised since the Summer of Love. “I always dreamed I’d spend my retirement surrounded by my grandchildren, telling them that the F.B.I. were fascist pigs,” Carol Foyler, a former hippie who lives in Santa Cruz, said. “That dream has been shot to hell.” Her husband, Mick, nodded his head in sad agreement. “We were so happy

What O.P. said. The typically shallow Borowitz actually scores a laugh with truth at its core.

This is your brain on drugs.

This would seem to be parody but since it´s in the New Yorker I have to believe they are serious. I confess I didn´t read the entire article because the ones in the NY are usually so very long-winded.

The New Yorker is a just barely breathing PR outlet for the Democrats in general and Hillary, Warren and others of their ilk. This magazine is the print version of MSNBC. If you won´t turn on MSNBC, you shouldn´t pick up the New Yorker in your doctor´s office.

As to fascist FBI, all that is missing from the seniors of the FBI are brown shirts and arm bands with the Obama "O" symbol. At the urging of Obama, the DoJ and the FBI tried to stage a putsch to overthrow our election and prevent a duly elected president from taking office so that Hillary could continue to amass power and wealth at our expense,

My all time favorite Hippie moment was during the Chicago riots of ‘68 when Mayor Daly’s police laid into them with billy clubs. The memory of that always puts a smile on my face.

It all started when they put on lace-up shoes and ran for Congress.

Borowitz is the latest incarnation of Art Buchwald, write books and stories about news you or others made up. Buchwald supposedly caught President Reagan napping and then he wrote a book about how the Nation went to hell while the Commander in Chief was dreaming of his Hollywood days.

I spent the summer of 1967 in San Francisco, not in Haight Ashbury but North Beach. The Summer of Love quickly turned in to the Fall Of Our Discontent, with people robbed on the street at knifepoint.

I joined the army and grew up. Most of those idiots eventually realized they had to do something with their life and went to college, where they took over and imposed their totalitarian leftist beliefs. They took their disillusionment on the unfairness of life out on us and our children, hating their own country because it turned out life wasn´t all unicorns and rainbows.

Even a police loudspeaker could

Now we hear that there was a cop on the school grounds in Florida, and four deputies were outside the school, waiting for backup. Some people are blaming the cops, but even an armed cop has to have the tactical advantage to go in shooting. We talk about guns, but we never talk about courage and tactical skill. To use a gun against a killer, you need training, a good plan, and the guts to use them. Cops and soldiers are taught not to confront an enemy until there´s the right backup and an action plan. That's the proper thing to do when you control the timing and the zone, but it's useless when you have no idea of what's happening inside the

Call it the wages of socialism: Venezuela´s consulate has been evicted for non-payment of its rent since August. What a pretty picture. Seems dirt poor Haiti has no problem maintaining a consulate in Miami, nor wretched Belarus, nor tiny Antigua & Barbuda. Other countries, such as the Gambia, Singapore, Liberia, and Switzerland maintain honorary consulates, usually because their need for one in Miami is minimal but necessary, and they know how to keep costs down. Well, not Venezuela, whose Florida consulate serves more than 102,000 of its nationals, most of whom fled the Chavista socialist horror show, and which has just been

I am sure there is nothing at all suspicious when the then-speaker of the House managed to triple her (and her husband Paul´s) estimated net worth in the period of a global financial crisis, when the federal government was deciding whom to bail out and whom to let go bankrupt, and where to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on "stimulus." Doug Ross of Director Blue noticed the stunning investment success of the San Francisco couple, drawing on information from Open Secrets, run by the Center for Responsive Politics.

A documentary about a Syrian refugee in Germany, who happily lives on state handouts with his two wives and six kids, has angered many in the country where polygamy is against the law. The Spiegel TV film was aired over the weekend, telling the story of 32-year-old Ahmad A. who fled the fighting in Syria’s Aleppo back in 2015 with his large family, and found a safe haven in Schleswig-Holstein, northern Germany. The man lives in a two-story house provided by the community with two wives and six children. Despite polygamy being illegal in Germany, Ahmad was allowed to bring his second

Moms are embarrassing, even when they’re Oscar-winning legends. But Sally Field has succeeded in getting her single son in contact with the Olympics’ breakout star Adam Rippon. Page Six has exclusively learned that Field’s son has reached out personally to figure skating darling Rippon to apologize for his mom’s awkward attempts to set them up on a date. On Friday, filmmaker Sam Greisman tweeted a text conversation between him and Field in which his doting mom encouraged him to “find a way” to ask the scene-stealing skater out on a date, with Field telling her son of Rippon, “Sam . .

The nightmare of Obamacare is almost over. Europe is paying its NATO bills. The ISIS empire is dead. North Korea is trembling. Russia is on the run.

If rule-of-law advocates are seen as a divided bunch and President Trump himself seems a bit squishy on what kind of bill he will sign to end illegal immigration, it´s worth noting that over on the left, the open-borders lobby, and the garden-variety illegals in particular, are pretty much at each others´ throats over the coddling that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients are getting. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune: “I’m very bitter.

I have always prided myself on being an amateur historian, knowing far more than most people. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out, about ten years ago, that I knew nothing about one of the most important battles in world history, whose ramifications echo down to this day. This is the Battle of Cartagena de los Indias, fought between the Spanish and British empires off the coast of present-day Colombia in 1741. It was part of the War of Jenkin´s Ear, a war where Britain´s ultimate aim was to break the Spanish empire and impose a British hegemony

The stock market apparently has decided that the indictments of Russians announced yesterday is good news for the tax-cutting, regulation-slashing president who ignited the boom that is raising corporate profits, full-time employment, and paychecks all over the country. Let CNN and MSNBC and the other Trump-haters bloviate about how this proves something bad about President Trump. The people with money on the line don´t care about manufacturing narratives for political gain; all they care about is a cold-eyed assessment of where this will lead the country. This screenshot from CNBC says it all. At first, there were fears that the country might

As if it couldn´t soil itself more in the wake of its flawed Russian investigation scandal targeting Donald Trump, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is in hot water again, this time over its failure to act on at least two very specific tipoffs about the Parkland, Florida school spray shooter, who murdered 17 people in cold blood. Here is the FBI´s press release: On January 5, 2018, a person close to Nikolas Cruz contacted the FBI’s Public Access Line (PAL) tipline to report concerns about him.

U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon did not medal in his final event at the 2018 Winter Olympics, but he remains an Olympic star nonetheless. Rippon emerged as a fan favorite during the Olympics, loved especially for the artistic beauty of his routine, his honesty and hilarious tweets. He also made headlines for a feud with Vice President Mike Pence over the politician’s stance on gay rights. The skater took home a bronze medal in the team event for figure skating. Rippon finished in the men’s figure skating long program Friday, and although he didn’t earn a medal in that event, it was

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption. Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel´s campaign manager. Israel had been a Republican but ran

John Kasich’s inner circle is gearing up for a possible presidential run in 2020 — actively weighing the prospect of a Republican primary challenge to President Donald Trump against the feasibility of a long-shot general election campaign as an independent. And there’s one consideration driving their thinking perhaps more than any other: what some of his advisers consider the very real, maybe even likely, possibility that Trump doesn’t run again — by choice or not — or that the president becomes so politically hobbled by late next year that the political landscape fundamentally shifts in Kasich’s favor. That’s one reason

A Harvard law grad argued Thursday that armed teachers would shoot black students. Elie Mystal, who graduated and practiced law with a Harvard University law degree, made the case for why armed teachers would shoot black students, reported The College Fix. He published the argument on Above the Law, a law blog he edits. Mystal argued that arming teachers would be pricey, not dissuade potential shooters, and “directly result in students of color being shot to death at school.” “I know that because the only other group of public employees that is armed at the behest of the state shoots

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called on Friday for a "conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world," and questioned why Americans should have access to "military weapons." "I think it is time for us to have a conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world," Rice told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. "I don’t understand why civilians need to have access to military weapons." "We wouldn’t, we wouldn’t say you can go out and buy a tank," she continued.

A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office. On the afternoon of Feb. 20, detectives investigated a report of terroristic threats at the school, where they learned that a student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign. Students in the group began commenting that the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number, looked like a gun.

The way Rush Limbaugh sees it, CNN has become so consumed by hatred of President Donald Trump that everyone at the network has full-on descended into madness. The conservative radio host began his Friday show by applauding Trump’s CPAC speech and saying once again that CNN’s town hall on the Parkland shooting was nothing but terrible, nasty, anti-gun mind control. After that, he turned his attention to a CNN piece published Thursday titled “Trump’s language on school shooter’s mental health could be harmful, experts say,” which asserts that Trump and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch are not helping discussions about mental

A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring. On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place. Now CNN reports

This strikes me as really pushing for any excuse to attack Trump for any reason whatsoever. CNN has a whole story devoted to shaming Trump for calling the Parkland shooter a “sicko” on the grounds that it’s stigmatizing to people with mental health problems who aren’t all mass shooters of children. From CNN: (Snip) And although Trump has said he wants to focus on mental health to stop school shootings, calling Cruz a “sicko” doesn’t help, those experts claim… “When it comes to mental health, language really matters.

Two people who work to prepare food for students at New York University have lost their jobs for serving a meal featuring food and beverages believed to be stereotypically associated with black cuisine. The New York Times reports: On Tuesday, a dining hall at New York University advertised a special meal in honor of Black History Month. On the menu? Barbecue ribs, corn bread, collard greens, and two beverages with racist connotations: Kool-Aid and watermelon-flavored water. Nia Harris, a sophomore in N.Y.U.´s College of Arts & Science, sought an explanation from Weinstein Passport Dining Hall´s head cook.
