The White House Super Bowl Party Got a Little Out of Hand......

Sheriff Clarke on BLM Leader Deray McKesson’s Bid for Mayor

McKesson and Wolfie Early Last Year

After partying at the White House over the holidays,  America's favorite SJW and feral ghetto rat agitator now thinks he can run a major city.  Some not so much.....

Sheriff David Clarke told Baltimore voters to run “far and fast” from Black Lives Matter protester DeRay Mckesson.
Mckesson’s announcement of his bid for mayor of Baltimore set Clarke off and he issues a warning to Baltimore voters.
“His platform is that he want to destroy another great American city much like he did when he was down there rabble-rousing in Ferguson, Missouri. 
“We saw his lack of leadership ability in the city of Ferguson as that city went up in flames. If DeRay Mckesson wants to make Baltimore a better city he can do that by packing up and leave and it will become a better city the next day.”
Clarke was asked about Mckesson being a “professional protester”.
“It doesn’t mean anything. Like I said it means he is an underachiever and he doesn’t have any real skills to offer. I can’t believe that colleges and universities are stealing young people’s money for tuition offering these useless degrees where there is no demand in the marketplace for that sort of thing. So what you do, you either go into teaching at a university or you become a riot starter or a troublemaker like DeRay Mckesson.”

Social Engineering and Obama's Diversity Brown Shirts

If you're a white male looking to advance your career or make more money for your family, it may have just gotten harder. Claiming women aren't getting paid enough, the Obama Administration PC Police want to make it easier to accuse employers of gender discrimination and hit them with class-action lawsuits. 

New regulations proposed last week will require all employers with 100 or more workers to report how much their workforce is paid, broken down by race and gender. The rule slated to go into effect in September 2017 will cause headaches for employers and anyone, man or woman, who works hard and expects to get ahead based on merit. The winners are leftist social engineers within the government, class-action lawyers and the Democrat Party, which is playing up the gender "wage gap" during this election year.

Never mind this gap is largely fiction, or that government social engineers are foisting their cookie-cutter vision of a politically correct workplace on employers, denying them freedom to hire and promote based on merit.  Race and gender discrimination is already against the law. As it should be. But seniority, education and merit often explain salary differences. That won't be good enough in the future. Employers will have to change their policies to avoid these differences, for example, not preferring the job applicant who has a college degree to the applicant who doesn't, unless the job can be shown to require college skills. The burden is on employers. It's assumed they are discriminating, and they have to prove they're not.

Jenny Yang, chairwoman of Obama's State Bureau of Statistical Truth and Fairness Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, defends the massive fishing expedition, saying:
" discrimination goes undetected because of a lack of accurate information about what people are paid."
The only reason the federal government needs to know what anyone pays or makes is for taxation purposes. And of course, all this information can also be used to further break down a proper balance of racial mix for employees. 

Your employer will have to lump workers into 12 salary bands. If you're a white male up for a raise, but the band above yours already includes too many white males, tough luck. Your boss will be pressured to give the raise to a woman or minority to avoid triggering EEOC scrutiny.  This data collection is a godsend for EEOC regulators looking for targets, and it hands class action lawyers the statistics they need on a silver platter.

Even Hard Hitting Journalist Have a Tender Side......

Hey America, guess what?

Presidential elections don’t end after Iowa. Iowa, in fact, usually tells us very little about what is going to happen in the presidential race. The only reason anyone pays attention to Iowa is that it goes first. Seriously.

Which is why it goes first. It’s essentially a desperate appeal for attention, an appeal that we all respond to not because we want to, but because we have to. And then we shower the day after and wonder, “what were we thinking?” Until we do it again in 4 years.

As Bette Davis put it in All About Eve, “fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night(s).”

The Clintons’ Political Legacy of Dishonesty

"Spin and puffery have a long history in politics, but something has snapped in our culture that we no longer even expect our leaders to talk straight. We have become immune to lies and the liars who tell them.
I blame it on the Clintons. Their survival despite a quarter-century of shameful dishonesty has lead the way in lowering the bar for integrity in public life. ... We would have better politics and be a better country if we had stopped the Clintons years ago. It was obvious before his election that Bill Clinton was a stranger to truth, and it soon became obvious that Hillary was no better. ... 
In a world that prized truth, she couldn't be dog-catcher. In our world, she could be president." — Michael Goodwin, New York Post
