Cheetos vs. Strawberries: NAACP Attempts to Explain Man Made Global Warming Racism

 The Genius of Black America's Leadership

Global warming is why cops arrest black people who break the law. Global warming causes black children to get suspended from school for misbehaving. Global warming is why it’s easier to get Cheetos than strawberries in black neighborhoods.

Note: No Government Cheese was Harmed in the Making of this Post
DownTrend
Madeleine Taylor is Executive Director of the Memphis Branch of the NAACP. Today she wrote a column for Cleanenergy.org, in which she tries to make the case that man-made global warming is racist. I know, it sounds crazy enough already, right? There’s actually much much more lunacy to be had. It turns out the NAACP has an official policy concerning global warming and one of the “racist” impacts they claim is the lack of strawberries.
Here is what Taylor says is the NAACP’s position on man-made global warming:
"Climate Change is about Katrina, Rita, and Ike devastating communities in Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, and Texas, Climate Change is about our sisters and brothers in the Bahamas who will be losing their homes to rising sea levels in the coming few years. Climate Change is about people in Detroit, Ohio, Pennsylvania..."
Yes, because we all know that no white people live in the Gulf Coast region and therefore they did not feel the impact of the aforementioned hurricanes. And of course there’s no white people in Detroit, Ohio or Pennsylvania. Okay, I’ll give ‘em Detroit.
"Climate Change is about sisters and brothers in West Virginia who are breathing toxic ash from blasting for mountain top removal. Climate Change is about our folks in Thibodeaux, Louisiana who are being forced to move within the next 10 years because rising sea levels will result in the submersion of the coastal land that is their home currently."
So far the NAACP rant is trying to take things that happen to everyone and make it seem like they only affect black people. Essentially they are saying it rains harder on black people than white people. If that doesn’t seem crazy enough, there’s this:
"It’s about the fact that race–over class–is the number one indicator for the placement of toxic facilities in this country. Climate change is about the fact that in our communities it is far easier to find a bag of Cheetos than a carton of strawberries."
The only thing I can think of is that blacks have become so accustomed to blaming all of their problems on racism that now that they think global warming is racist. They are throwing in every grievance they can.

Bayou Renaissance Man Just Thinking Out Loud

A Presidential election hypothesis . . .

Just thinking aloud here. Bear with me.

FIRST: Donald Trump seems to either scare the crap out of, or piss off, most of the Republican Party establishment. So far, so good. Anyone who does that to those ***holes can't be all bad.

SECOND: I suspect the Republican Party establishment will move heaven and earth to nominate anyone but Trump as that party's Presidential candidate for 2016. They'll use every trick in the book, and a few that no-one's ever written down, to accomplish that. They want someone they can control, who'll parrot their message and be faithful to the moneybags that fund them.

THIRD: I suspect Trump will be pissed off enough that he might just do a Ross Perot and run as an independent candidate for the Presidency.

FOURTH: I suspect most Democratic Party establishment figures now agree, whether openly or not, that Hillary Clinton is 'damaged goods'. She's carrying so much baggage, actual and potential, that she can be taken down by any one of a number of scandals spinning out of control. She's also 'old guard' Democrat, out of step and out of touch with a growing liberal/progressive surge (that's behind the rise of Elizabeth Warren and other further-left figures).

FIFTH: I suspect the Democratic Party establishment will move heaven and earth to nominate an 'old guard' Democrat (for example, Joe Biden) as that party's Presidential candidate for 2016, because they're afraid of someone they can't control. Elizabeth Warren is unlikely to get their nod, as is anyone wanting to move out of the path set by President Obama (who's been reliably controllable on most issues).

SIXTH: I suspect an 'establishment' candidate will piss off enough Democrats that an independent left-wing candidate becomes a real possibility. What about Michael Bloomberg? He, like Trump, can afford to spend what he likes of his own money to get into the White House, and raise a middle finger to the establishment in doing so. He'll also attract a lot of left-wing/progressive support, particularly if he asks Elizabeth Warren or someone like her to be his running mate. The liberal urban enclaves, where most Democratic voters are concentrated, would be a shoo-in for them.

So, we may see a match-up between two main political parties AND two independent, rich, self-made candidates who don't care what their respective party establishments think - a four-way fight. Wouldn't that be interesting? Both Trump and Bloomberg have very high name recognition, and very large pools of voters who are probably favorably disposed towards them. I wouldn't be surprised if both of them polled higher than the 'establishment' candidates in an election - and with 'spoiler' candidates on both sides of the fence, the result would be very hard to predict.

The 2016 elections might become a whole lot more interesting than I'd thought . . .

The Perfect Product

Pretend you’re the scam artist. You’ve found the perfect product. 
Your product is invisible, nobody can see or taste it. You don’t need to hire employees, because you don’t need to make your product,  it's already made. You don’t need to ship your product because it's already everywhere. No shipping or handling.


Your product never fails because it’s fictional. Nobody can publish a review of your product, since they can’t actually touch it. This protects you from the pesky folks at Consumer Reports. They can’t road-test your product and find flaws, because your product doesn’t exist.

Getting billions of people to buy your imaginary, non-existent product is like getting them to feed a unicorn. They never actually meet the unicorn, but they pay each day and pay extra when you announce the unicorn is “sick.” If they refuse to give money for the unicorn, you pass laws (taxes and fees) forcing them to. Then, you heap guilt on top – since anyone NOT feeding the unicorn is bad.

Everyone's A Customer.

Most scams target a person or group. But Global Warming targets everyone on earth because everyone breathes air and uses electricity. If you don't live in a tree house, you're using gas/electricity for heat. And everyone owns a light bulb. Since these things are “sins,” the crooks get you – just for being alive.


In short, Global Warming scammers sell an invisible product thats everywhere and used by everyone.

It's the perfect scam.

When folks discover the scam, the thieves change its branding from “Global Warming” to “Climate Change.” This way, their sales pitch covers everything that could possibly happen. Socialists know that “Green is the new Red.” In other words, if they can’t sell you Communism, they’ll gain control via Environmentalism. So government tells us cars/people are making the planet hotter and demands trillions in new taxes to “fix” this problem.

The notion that governments scam you is troubling. So troubling, that most folks don’t want to think about it or worse yet, do anything about it. Since you wouldn’t murder your neighbor, you have trouble imagining other people murdering their neighbor. Yet every year, a handful of people, for various reasons, murder their neighbor. It keeps happening even though you have trouble imagining it. This tendency to assume “what’s true for me is true for others” makes sense in many cases. But in some cases, that belief is totally false. 

Con artists exist. And some aren’t after your wallet – they’re after everyone’s wallet.

Fearing a Repeat of 2008, Team Hillary Looks to Chop Off Joe Biden’s Pair.


As Uncle Joe searches for a battle helmet harder then his own head and contemplates jumping into the Presidential race, and with crazy Bernie hot on her heels, Hillary's coronation robe continues to get muddier by the day. Barry's recent blessing of Joe may piss on her parade again by unleashing the attack dogs on her ass in order to put his thumb on the scale for Biden.

DownTrend
If you listened to the Clinton political machine back in early 2008, the queen in waiting was as invincible as the 18-0 New England Patriots who only had to beat the upstart New York Giants in the Super Bowl to make history. (we all remember how that turned out). Just a little more than four months after the Pats collapsed, Hillary Clinton conceded the Democratic party nomination to a young hustler from Chicago named Barack Obama. It was a crushing humiliation to an anal retentive narcissist who was hellbent on making history as the first female U.S. president and haunts her to this day. 
Now, with the Dems having made what in hindsight appears to be a catastrophic decision to go all in on Hillary even though she would take the whole party down with her if she imploded again, history is on the verge of repeating itself.
Beset by problems of her own creation as well as her not exactly being a likeable person (translation: bitch on wheels), Hillary is going down in flames and the Hillemmings are frantically looking to lay their hands on fire extinguishers. With Vice President Joe “Foghorn Leghorn” Biden having received Emperor Obama’s blessing to challenge the Clinton crime family for the nomination, Hillary is going into full out bitch mode. It’s like that line from the Clint Eastwood western The Outlaw Josey Wales about getting “plumb mad dog mean” and Mrs. Clinton is ready to chop off old Joe’s balls with a pair of rusty garden shears before he gains any sort of momentum.....
The AP: Clinton sends Biden a message....
In ways both subtle and blunt, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign is sending a message to Vice President Joe Biden about his potential presidential campaign: This won’t be easy.
While Clinton and her team speak warmly of Biden in public, they have taken steps to make clear how they’ve taken control of the party’s establishment in hopes of discouraging the vice president from entering the race.
The latest came Friday in the most public of settings: the Democratic National Committee summer meetings. In a speech to the party’s most committed activists, Clinton cast herself as its standard-bearer and vowed to win the presidential race and rebuild the party from the ground up.
“We are building something that will last long after next November,” Clinton told party officials gathered in a Minneapolis ballroom. “Other candidates may be fighting for a particular ideology, but I’m fighting for you and your families.”
The speech came after her team rolled out a string of high-profile endorsements in early-voting states and scheduled an onslaught of fundraisers across the country in the effort to ice a Biden bid before he even gets started.
Behind the scenes, they’re pressuring donors and delegates to pledge their loyalty to Clinton. Her team sent a slate of top aides to the meeting this weekend armed with pledge cards asking party delegates to commit to Clinton. - READ MORE

Cornered and growing increasingly shrill, and despite the DNC running defense for her, I suspect Barry has the goods on Her Majesty, and is prepared to use them....

What's the Smallest Caliber You Trust for Self Defense?

Some say a .22 magnum is not powerful enough to defend thy self. I disagree.......

I remember once camping in Wyoming with a boyfriend and while hiking we ran headlong into a brown bear along the trail, and boy was she mad. Seems we were unknowingly close to one of her cubs, and she started to charge us. 

I pulled out my little Beretta and fired one round into my boyfriend's kneecap and briskly walked off in the opposite direction.  So who said you can't defend yourself with a .22.   I do love my little Beretta.

TIN FOIL HAT REPORT: It Took Them Less Than 24 Hours. But the Wingnuts Figured It Out.

WDBJ Virginia Shooting Was Really Freemason-Illuminati Media HOAX
"CBS All Seeing Eye Lucifer's Supercollider Broadcasting Network’s partnership with The Department of Homeland Security hoax-scheme on the population, trying to incite race wars in America. I will give them credit, this one was inventive, but still a HOAX......no blood, shooting victims running and screaming AFTER being “shot”. Father of female on tv no tears no red eyes, fake crying. Fiancé of female shot, no tears no red eyes......" 


I guess they got tired of waiting for Jade-Helm 15 to seize their guns and turn the Republic of Texas into an internment camp, and had to have something to occupy their brain cavities. 

MSNBC Trots Out Noted Conspiracy Theorist to Weigh In on Trump / Fox News Poo Fight

It's a Sham I Tell Ya. You're Being Played!
Newsbusters
When it comes to fake news stories, if anyone's an expert it's Dan Rather . . . The disgraced former CBS News anchor has a new twist on the vast right-wing conspiracy. 
Instead of plotting against poor innocents like Bill and Hillary, those conspiratorial conservatives are now creating phony feuds among themselves!  Rather declared himself "suspicious" about the battle between Donald Trump and Fox News, suggesting that Trump and Roger Ailes might have "gotten together and planned out" the feud for their mutual benefit.
(Viewer Warning: This video clip also features the shrill gender-confused Ricky Maddow)

d
For good measure, Rather went on to analogize Trump to segregationist presidential candidates George Wallace and Strom Thurmond. Note: while floating his conspiracy theory, Rather admitted that he was "without very much evidence."
But when has that ever deterred Dan from attacking a Republican?

Obama Dems No Longer Have Reason for Optimism

Barack dragged scowling Medusa back from another weeks long vacation this weekend. Hillary Clinton is also on vacation. The only one on stage, with a sense of urgency, during the Black Monday meltdown is Donald Trump.

Monday morning, before the stock markets on Wall Street opened, there was Donald Trump on TV speaking with urgency about the economic plight of the American People. Trump denounced hedge fund managers and added to his years long warnings about China. Yes, you read that right. Billionaire Donald Trump denounced hedge fund managers as parasites who unlike him built nothing.

Hillary? Obama? Biden? MIA.

In the first half hour of opening the markets spectacularly followed up the 350 point loss from Thursday and the 530 point loss from Friday. At one point the plunge was over 1,000 points and after violent ups and downs the market closed 588 points lower. 



The big losers were not to be found on Wall Street however. The big losers today are Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton. Once again, Donald Trump is the winner of the entire week.

Anyone or anything associated with Barack Obama is today’s big loser, again. The Obama economy and the stink of Barack Obama will knock out any presidential candidate who defends Barack Obama economic policy in any way. The Associated Press decorates the funeral parlor:

AP survey: Dimmer outlook for US economy, wages and hiring. 
For much of the economy’s fitful and sluggish six-year recovery from the Great Recession, analysts have foreseen a sunnier future: Growth would pick up in six months, or in a year.
That was then.
The latest Associated Press survey of leading economists shows that most now foresee a weaker expansion than they had earlier. A majority of the nearly three dozen who responded to the survey predict tepid economic growth, weak pay gains and modest hiring for the next two years at least.
“We no longer have reason for optimism that the economy is going to accelerate,” said Mike Englund, chief economist at Action Economics. “The real question is, when is the next downturn coming?” 
The “next two years,” no “reason for optimism,” “when is the next downturn coming?” is a frightening place for a presidential candidate who wants to be an Obama “third term” or even associated with Obama the boob.

Stompy Foot Refuses To Back Down From Calling Republicans Crazies

The White House said that President Stompy Foot doesn’t regret calling Senate Republicans crazies during a Democratic event in Las Vegas.  Obama called Republican lawmakers crazies while speaking about his friend and somewhat unstable Harry Reid: 
“It’s hard for me to express how much I love Harry Reid, but it’s easier to do it in a room of people who love Harry Reid. Harry and I drove over here together and we were doing a little reminiscing, and then figuring out how we’re going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems. And then we talked about riding off into the sunset together.”
And that's a day most of us have waited for for a long time.... 


Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz made it clear that Obama isn’t going to back down from his remarks.  According to The Hill:
“He may have been a little glib in his language,” spokesman Eric Schultz told reporters. But asked if the president regrets his choice of words, Schultz replied no.”
Schultz said the president was taking aim at Republicans in Congress, who are locked in a budget stalemate with Democrats that could result in a government shutdown.
“If you take a step back … and look at what some Republicans have floated in Washington, whether that’s shutting down the government, whether that’s funding the government at sequester levels when the economy needs more support, he thinks those are reckless steps..." 
In other words, Obama stands by his point that the Republican agenda is nuts.

The President has evolved from trying to work with "the crazies" when Republicans took the control of the House of Representatives to trying to use the crazy to his advantage saying Republicans have manufactured an endless series of conspiracies and crisis.  Obama’s language could also be viewed as a strong message that he is not going to be engaging in any negotiations with Republicans over shutting down the government. This president, in his regal terms, won’t be their hostage.

It was earlier this month that Obama called out Republicans for aligning themselves with the death to America extremists in Iran who oppose the nuclear agreement. And who is he calling crazy?

Obama won’t negotiate with the crazies, and he is offering no regrets or apologies for telling the truth about the GOP. So There!

Progressive Thought Has Little To Do With Reason


Progtards Today
Sometimes you really have to marvel at the stupidity of progressives and now is one of those times.
One of the main reasons Donald Trump is doing so well in the polls is because he’s saying what many Americans are thinking about illegal immigration and border security.
National Journal columnist Clare Foran worries that if a wall is built on the border, as Trump has suggested, people who try to cross into America illegally could be injured.
Her new column is truly stunning:
"Trump’s Border Wall Would be DANGEROUS for ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS" 
"Donald Trump wants America to build a permanent wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. “We’ll have a great wall. We’ll call it the Great Wall of Trump,” the real estate mogul told Fox Business recently.
If that ever happens, the consequences could be deadly for the hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who attempt to cross the border each year, many of whom are unlikely to be deterred by even the greatest of walls. Tightening security at America’s southern border will inevitably make it more difficult to illegally traverse. But immigration and security experts warn that any effort to seal off the border will also make conditions more dangerous for the unauthorized immigrants who still try to make it over...."
So, to recap…
This liberal writer is more concerned about the safety of people entering America illegally than she is about our laws and national security.
You couldn’t make this stuff up.

Fixin' Ferguson: Judge Caves to #blacklivesmatter

 Judge Cancels Arrest Warrants,
Does Away with Pre-trial Bail Bonds

Ferguson Fixer Judge Donald McCullin

Less then a weeks after a 9 year old girl was shot to death by a stray bullet while doing her homework, a Ferguson Municipal Judge has weaken the protection of law abiding citizens by loosening the courts ability to detain lawbreakers, and put thugs who prey back on the streets of the city in the name of fairness and healing.

The Dot
The newest judge in the Ferguson Municipal Court withdrew all arrest warrants issued before Dec. 31, 2014, as part of a broad set of changes coming to the city. Just two months into his new post, Judge Donald McCullin also changed the conditions for pre-trial release of certain defendants to include payment plans, community service, or commuting fines for indigent persons. The brilliant Judge had this to say:
"These changes should continue the process of restoring confidence in the Court, alleviating fears of the consequences of appearing in Court, and giving many residents a fresh start.
“Many individuals whose license has been suspended will be able to obtain them and take advantage of the benefits of being able to drive. Moreover, defendants will not be disadvantaged in being afforded pre-trial release because of the inability to make bond.”
McCullin, 74, is a member of the Mound City Bar Association, a group that voiced criticism of police and government actions surrounding the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, last year and the ensuing violence, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The Mound City Bar Association, which represents black lawyers, sued Ferguson in the wake of those events.
McCullin was appointed to his job after his predecessor stepped down following death threats to his family.

Yeah, that's the ticket! Let em' intimidate the court, run wild and flaunt the law.

Score one for the rabble rousers and thugs of Ferguson, and the emotionally stunted children of #blacklivesmatter with their IQ's rating just above room temperature.

Hillary vs. Judicial Watch

A strange, but predictable thing happened on the way to Hillary’s coronation. What happened that’s hurt Hillary most is that she reverted to Clinton form. She’s unlikable. She’s been secretive. She’s acted like the rules don’t apply to her. That’s before she pissed off the MSM with her petulant behavior.

In short, Clinton’s handlers let Madam Hillary be Madam Hillary.

She might’ve gotten away with it if she hadn’t been the most corrupt Secretary of State in US history, and because she didn’t want to deal with FOIA requests and set up the private email.  That was exceptionally stupid decision considering the fact that Judicial Watch’s mission is to hold people accountable. Judicial Watch isn’t a little mom and pop organization. They’re well-funded and they’re tenacious. They’re well-equipped to file one lawsuit after another, which is what they’ve done.

As a result of Hillary’s corruption and Judicial Watch’s tenacity, Hillary can’t afford to treat this like a coronation any more:

"Amid concerns about Mrs. Clinton’s softening poll numbers and her exclusive use of a personal email server as secretary of state, she will interrupt her Hamptons stay next week to travel to the Midwest and try to shift attention back to her campaign message by unveiling new policy positions
She will then return to the Hamptons, where she and former President Bill Clinton are renting a beach-side estate in Amagansett that costs $100,000 for a two-week stay, and will attend several $2,700-per-person fund-raisers hosted there by her wealthy friends."
While there’s no indication yet that Hillary won’t be the Democrats’ nominee, there’s more than enough information, mostly in the form of swing-state polls, that suggests she could very well get beat in the general election.

The basis for those swing-state polls is that she’s a) totally unlikable, b) untrustworthy and c) she doesn’t relate to the average person. That’s hitting the trifecta…if you want to lose. It’s understandable that Hillary’s campaign wants to take the attention away from the emails by switching to friendlier turf. Their problem is that she’s alienated the media and she’s insisted that she be treated like royalty.

That’s the perfect path to stopping a coronation.

The 14th Amendment Doesn’t Grant Citizenship to Babies of Illegal Aliens!

by Anna Maria Perez
The 14th Amendment does not grant birthright citizenship to everyone born in the United States. In order to assume that it does, a person has to actually ignore what it says. The Supreme Court set the precedent of birthright citizenship by misinterpreting the 14th Amendment. Poor education about our history and government ensures that We the People never get uppity over this unconstitutional misinterpretation. The purpose of the 14th Amendment was to give citizenship to former slaves who were in the United States through no fault of their own.
The 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868. If it granted citizenship for no reason other than being born on U.S. soil, you would think that the U.S. would have started granting birthright citizenship in 1868, right? Wrong. They didn’t, because that isn’t what the 14th Amendment says. As a matter of fact, two years prior to its ratification, Senator Jacob Howard explained the actual intent of the 14th Amendment. He said:
“Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country.”
The key to inheriting birthright citizenship is being subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. Foreigners are subject to the jurisdiction of the countries they are citizens of. We deport illegal aliens back to the countries that they are subject to the jurisdiction of. If they were subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, then they would have all privileges and rights that go with that jurisdiction including voting, enlisting in our armed forces, and running for public office. Not being part of our jurisdiction, they are ineligible. They can do so in their home countries. The Supreme Court held to this in the 1884 Elk v. Wilkins case. They decided that the children of foreign ministers were not granted birthright citizenship based on the fact that they weren’t subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. 
And American Indian was not granted citizenship, because his parents weren’t completely subject to U.S. jurisdiction, being also subject to an Indian nation. If an American Indian was not granted American Citizenship by birthright after the 14th Amendment was ratified, then we can certainly conclude that birthright citizenship isn’t granted to foreigners by the 14th Amendment. Congress didn’t grant citizenship to American Indians until 1924!
It wasn’t until 1898, 30 years after the ratification of the 14th Amendment, that a case came in front of the Supreme Court that changed things. Keep in mind that the 5th Clause of the 14th Amendment specifically gives congress the power to enforce the 14th Amendment, not the Supreme Court.

You Can Buy Just About Anything on the Interwebs These Days....

Looking to have a little fun this weekend, I decided to look and see if any genius out there had come up with a Time-machine app for androids yet. You know, to go back in time and have a conversation with Cicero or something. No such luck. But I did find this interesting little app.....

With Hollywood Help, Obama Begins Re-Writing History

by Jonathan S. TobinAccording to the New York Times article 'Obama Plots Life After Presidency', the planning for Barack Obama’s post-presidency started as soon as his second term began. The conversations began with director Steven Spielberg and studio executive Jeffrey Katzenberg impressing upon the president the need to employ cutting edge technology in the presidential library to be built to honor him. 

Their goal, which has apparently been reinforced in many other late night conversations at the White House with a variety of other well-heeled and influential Obama fans, is that the aim of the new institution will be to develop, as the Times tells us, a “narrative” for his post-presidency. The reaction to that from most of the country, including the many who don’t think he’s been a good president (a group that has included a clear majority of Americans for most of his disastrous scandal-ridden second term), is so what? As long as the Obama library isn’t being built on our dime, what do we care what it contains or how it spins his historic yet flawed presidency?  

But with Hollywood honchos already thinking about how they will help brush up Obama’s “narrative,” the main point of the Obama library won’t be so much grandeur as it will be to exalt the legacy of the 44th president. While the tone of Bush’s opening remarks when his library opened was humility (a theme reflected in its exhibit if not in the concept of a half-billion dollar museum), one suspects there will not be much of it in the place built to honor a man who has shown precious little of that quality in his presidency.

Even more troubling is the prospect that Obama will link his pyramid to a new foundation that will be cut from the mold of the Clinton’s efforts. Their family foundation is a toxic mix of influence peddling and a thinly veiled political slush fund. There’s little doubt that Obama could match or even exceed their efforts. And that’s why we should worry about the post-Obama presidency and that of future presidents who will similarly use their positions to create new hybrid institutions that pose as philanthropies while actually performing a very different less exalted non-charitable purpose. As it is difficult to imagine him operating with the humility of either Bush, it’s likely Obama will become a permanent presence in which his library and foundation will be bases from which he will continue to influence our political life for the worst for many years to come.

There is something distinctly unhealthy for democracy in our new tradition of building bigger and bigger museums for each president as if they were pharaohs in ancient Egypt trying to construct bigger pyramids than those erected for their predecessors. Such institutions are a reflection of the inflation of each president into something earlier Americans would think of as a monarch rather than the elected leader of a republic. The harnessing of Hollywood and Silicon Valley high-tech to Obama’s ego in a billion-dollar pyramid ought to trouble us a bit even if it is only his admirers who will pay for it.

Plans to build Obama a mausoleum that will dwarf the ones built for his predecessors and to re-write history to burnish his reputation provide us with new proof of the moral vacuum at the heart of his administration.

Governor Moonbeam Just called You a Genetically Inferior Troglodyte


The debate over global warming and climate change got uglier recently after California Gov. Jerry Brown of "no vaccine choice" fame insulted the intelligence – and genetic makeup – of everyone who disagrees with his premise that these phenomena are real.

Like all global warming alarmists, Brown – who was attending a "climate change summit" in Canada – made the same old tired, dire predictions of doom and gloom if the world continues to burn fossil fuels. But he also had a special descriptor for those who dare to call a hoax a hoax.

As for the "climate deniers," whom reporters present took to primarily mean Republicans (Brown is a Democrat), he added: "We have a lot of troglodytes south of the border."

There are descriptors for self-important blowhards who have made their living from taxpayers their entire adult careers (like Brown), but an exchange of name-calling is a pointless endeavor. Better to educate the masses with truth because after all, the truth will set us free. The troglodyte reference by Brown is interesting for its context; Brown apparently feels that anyone who disagrees with him regarding the future of the planet does not have the genetic brain power to debate him, much less prove him wrong. But then, most Yale Law School grads might think that, for a healthy dose of arrogance no doubt accompanies the diploma.

But having an Ivy League mouth doesn't give one license to presume the rest of the lesser-educated and unwashed masses are ignorant mutant fools with nothing useful to contribute to the debate. Yet this is precisely what the California governor and serial consumer of taxpayer funds believes.

How to convert the non-believer? Maybe eugenics?

After all, the "noble" state of California once led the nation in forced sterilizations, and while some 32 states had similar programs, "California was in a league of its own," CNN reported in 2013. The program in the Golden State was so successful that, in the mid-1930s, Nazi officials consulted California eugenicists before establishing their own program in Germany.

53% Of Democrats Want Joe to Go For it!

CNN Poll: Majority Of Democrats Want Joe Biden To Run. 


And We Find Ourselves in Full Agreement. Go For It Joe!

Earl Done This
CNN - Most Democrats say they do want Biden to make a go of it: 53% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters say they think Biden should run, 45% that he should stay out. Even among those who currently support Clinton, 50% say they think Biden should run. Democratic voters aren't necessarily convinced a Biden presidency would be better than a Clinton one, though: 35% say Biden would do a worse job as president than Clinton, 27% a better one and 38% say there wouldn't be any difference between the two.
A crooked grandmother with a bad memory, on the verge of a nervous breakdown, a wing-nut wild haired socialist misfit nephew of Colonel Sanders’  and a legendary gaff machine with foot-in-mouth disease, all grabbing for the same golden ring. Really, what more could we ask for?

Federal Judge Awards Half A Million To Illegal Alien

FPP - Jesus Castro Romo is half a million US dollars richer thanks to an Obama appointed federal judge for the U.S. District Court of Arizona.

Jesus Will Come Again 
Castro was part of a group of illegal aliens that was stopped by Border Patrol agents and who had run away from the group in an effort to escape. He was chased down by Border Agent Abel Canales (on horseback) and eventually wound up being shot.  The judge says the stories of the two men are very much alike except for the part when Castro was shot. Canales says Castro picked up a rock and attempted to throw it at the agent and that he (Canales) perceived that action as a threat.  

Judge James Soto, appointed to the bench by President Obama in December of 2013, ruled that because Agent Canales was later convicted of accepting a bribe from drug smugglers at a border crossing his testimony was “less credible” than that of a man who entered the United States illegally.


What's Wrong With America
“Being convicted of any crime for which dishonesty is a factor tends to undermine the reliability of a witness,” the judge wrote. “In this case, however, the conviction involved Canales’ work for the Border Patrol. Specifically, Canales had accepted a bribe from drug smugglers in exchange for allowing them to come through his inspection lane at a border patrol checkpoint.”

Perhaps I’m mistaken but doesn’t all crime, including entering into the country illegally, involve dishonesty? Which crimes are honest?

The judge also made it clear he didn’t think a rock was much of a threat compared to a gun. And in a normal circumstance, if you were facing each other on the street, I would tend to agree. (I wonder if he watched those videos of the protesters in Ferguson throwing 4 and 5 pound chunks of concrete at police officers?) But on horseback you would be very much vulnerable to a rock attack, and so would the horse.


Judge Soto awarded Castro $553,270.46 in economic and punative damages. He then determined that Castro was 10% responsible for what happened because he was in the country illegally so he took 10% of the award back. Really? Ten percent? It seems to me if Castro hadn’t been here the incident never would have happened. Doesn’t that put far more responsibility on him than a mere 10%?


Either way, Castro recovered from his injuries. And I’m guessing that $497,943.41 in U.S. dollars will help him recover his dignity. It will likely make his illegal entry back into the country easier as well.

Hillary Obviously Forgot Her Mother's Advice.......

Same Group That Sees the Word “American” as Problematic Urges Schools to Ban ‘Boy’ and ‘Girl’

 And Why Should We Change Anything for a Handful of Freaks?

Prison Planet

The biggest gay rights lobby group in the United States has called on schools to eliminate “gender stereotypes” by training staff to avoid using the words “boy” and “girl” in class.

A new back to school guide published by the Human Rights Campaign designed to make classrooms “gender inclusive” urges teachers to “avoid using gender to divide and address students” so as to prevent any transgender students from becoming upset.

“Instead of addressing your class using “boys” and “girls,” try something new. Words like “friends,” “students” or “scholars” allow all students to feel included, expand student vocabulary and model inclusive language and behavior for other students and teachers,” states the guide.

Asking students to identify as male or female on paperwork is also vehemently discouraged, with the guide encouraging schools to, “consider adding a third write-in option for those who have non-binary gender identities.”

A link to another resource shows a ‘gender inclusive registration form’ which gives children the option to pick their own “gender preferred pronoun.” The guide also urges schools not to include the words “mother” or “father” on any forms in case someone is offended.

 
Teachers are also encouraged to take advantage of “teachable moments” where they can explain to children why a student may have “two moms” or two dads, and how not just a man and a woman are capable of having a baby. The guide also advises teachers not to restrict certain activities to one gender, for example by encouraging boys to take part in girls’ dance lessons.

If I Were a Democrat.......

......I don't think I would feel very good about prospects for the future. Their ambitious support at all cost for a President they hoped would be their Ronald Regan has faded. The one who was once believed to be their savior and usher in a 40 year reign of democrat dominance has failed as a leader. He instead disgraced the office. He has divided the country with his arrogance and torn it open at the seams. He's done very little for his own black supporters besides giving lip service, fomenting their anger and increase their despair. Our foreign allies don't trust us and our enemies fear us not. Under his lack of leadership we are becoming a second rate appeasing power to the greatest threat to civilization since World War 2. 

And now what do democrats see lying ahead for them? Their increasingly unpopular leading candidate and standard bearer for 2016 faces scandalous allegations in the media and federal investigations that could possibly lead to indictment, all while telling the world it's her turn.  

And they see to her left a wild haired socialist leftover from the sixties with a northeastern accent preaching against the very system that made this country the envy of the world. A wing-nut independent with an outside chance to go down in flames while grasping the democrat banner.

And as the democrat looks up from their increasing Obamacare premium notices they see a resurgent opposing party, one at the present being led by a candidate with one of the most recognizable names in the the world. A man who speaks frankly and unafraid, who is stirring up the political conversation. And standing not far away, a line of potential leaders that include Hispanic, Black and Female, sons of immigrants, skilled professionals and experienced business leaders. No, this can't be!

Valiantly polishing the turd known as the Obama presidency and his failed legacy, or the want-to-be coming down the shoot, is not a good place to be. Truth be told, history is not shown the electorate very kind to parties who preside over such leadership as abhorrent to their beliefs and freedoms as the last seven years. 

And as Barack and family prepare to retire to a luxurious life of leisure in the relative safety of the Hawaiian Islands, you can hang on to your glorious machinations of Obama's greatness as you watch with envy as much smarter people are elected to solve the problems of rampant border violations, the increasing cost of living and the racially charged streets of America he left us with.  

No, if I were a democrat, I'm sure I would hang my head.....and probably drink a lot.

The Top 300 Conservative Websites, August 2015

Doug Ross posted the latest standings of conservative news and opinion sites, which are ordered using their Alexa traffic rankings. Yes, some of these are center-right, libertarian, or more middle-of-the-road sites, but they are included because they do publish center-right opinion pieces on a regular basis.
It should be noted that unless you pay Alexa a monthly fee, you page stats are an estimate. This will answer why some very popular high traffic sites are not ranked as high as a few 'clickbait' blogs. We did manage to squeeze in a place towards the end of the list.

Are We Witnessing Another Collapse of the Party System?


ACCIt is entertaining. All the “Ready for Hillary” bumper stickers seem to have vanished over the last month or so. Donald Trump is making mincemeat of the GOP party apparatus. All sorts of assumptions about the 2016 presidential race have been tossed out. Rules have been broken. New paths are being blazed. It has all thrown the Washington political class for a loop. And that is a very good thing.....

Personal Liberty
I know it’s still early, but it’s beginning to appear this election cycle that conventional wisdom may not hold.
The pundit class and the establishment politicians inhabiting the insular bubble that is the District of Criminals are flummoxed. They can’t fathom why the hoi polloi will not fall in line behind establishment-approved candidates (and there are several, but particularly they are Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton). Some pundits are even offering to turn in their “pundit license.”
For example, The Washington Post’s Charles Lane told Brett Baier on Fox News’ Special Report last week: “I think I’m going to have to turn in my pundit’s license because — or somebody is going to revoke it because I really can’t analyze this phenomenon. We’re living through one of the strangest, most — if not strange, one of the most puzzling moments in politics that I can remember.”
Americans in flyover country have long sensed that the politicians they elect are not the politicians who end up inhabiting the District of Criminals. And they have long sensed that the system is rigged against them and in favor of the establishment and crony corporations. Though they have sensed it, for the most part they still have played along in the hope that, somehow, something will change.
