Fort Hood Lesson Learned by Crazed Killer, Not by Those in Charge
3 Apr 2014 3:06 pm
Considering that right before it happened the FBI warned of Muslim plans to stage another Fort Hood–style massacre, it is surprising that the killer in the latest bloodbath at the massive Army base apparently has no Islamic background. Nonetheless, the lives lost were the result of the liberal authorities’ willful refusal to learn from experience:
An Iraq War veteran being treated for mental illness opened fire Wednesday on fellow service members at the Fort Hood military base, killing three people and wounding 16 before committing suicide at the same post where …
Church to Be Converted to Mosque in Syracuse
2 Apr 2014 3:15 pm
As the liberal establishment’s relentless propaganda war against Christianity takes its toll on church attendance, we see that nature abhors a vacuum:
Syracuse’s Holy Trinity has a new owner, and some major changes are coming for the former Roman Catholic church. …
[T]he church, rectory and its old school, currently used for refugee and immigration programs, have been sold to the North Side Learning Center, a North McBride Street-based all-volunteer organization founded in 2009.
Dr. Yusuf Soule, who heads up North Side Learning Center, confirms that his not for profit program has …
$400,000 of Our Money for Camel Statue in Pakistan
2 Apr 2014 3:13 pm
As the nation hurtles toward bankruptcy, our rulers aren’t wasting money just to waste it; they are wasting it to poke a finger in our eye. Otherwise, explain this:
The State Department is planning to spend $400,000 in taxpayer funds to buy a sculpture for the new American embassy being built in Islamabad, Pakistan, according to contracting records.
The work, by noted American artist John Baldessari, depicts a life-size white camel made of fiberglass staring in puzzlement at the eye of an oversize shiny needle — a not-so-subtle play on the New …
Busted for Dud Shell and Replica Bullets
1 Apr 2014 10:19 am
Mark Witaschek has lost his two-year legal battle against the tyrants running our nation’s capital. He is now registered in the DC’s Gun Offenders Registry, and must pay a fine. His crime came to light when the police searched his home:
The search was in response to a complaint from his estranged ex-wife. The evidence presented against Witaschek included a 12-gauge shell that failed to fire while Witaschek was hunting years ago, a spent .270 Winchester shell casing, and a box of .45 caliber Knight muzzleloader bullets with plastic sabots. The …
McCain Wants to Name Amnesty After Ted Kennedy
1 Apr 2014 10:14 am
Given that the backstabbing “maverick” John McCain has emerged as an important ally of Barack Obama, you may wonder if he can be considered a Republican in any meaningful sense. Benny Johnson of BuzzFeed provides the answer:
McCain "when immigration reform passes I will make sure it is forever called the Edward M. Kennedy immigration bill"
— BuzzFeed Benny (@bennyjohnson) March 28, 2014
Ted Kennedy, the most destructive leftist in the US government between FDR and Obama, is infamous as the driving force behind the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, an act …View More...
Maryland Pulls an Underwood on House of Cards
31 Mar 2014 2:26 pm
Life imitates art when it comes to unprincipled thugs:
Maryland lawmakers made a cutthroat move against the “House of Cards” production team — threatening to seize their property through eminent domain if they stop filming in the state.
The retaliatory step came after the Netflix original series said it might move to another state if Maryland didn’t provide enough tax credits.
It isn’t just that the real-life thugs comprising the government think along the same lines as fictional villains in the entertainment world. At least one legislator was consciously inspired by the …
National Science Foundation Wastes $700,000 on Play Promoting Global Warming Hoax
31 Mar 2014 2:22 pm
Like all government agencies, the National Science Foundation is primarily tasked with wasting our money in a way that advances the left-wing ideology that has been destroying the country.
This includes $700,000 in funding for a climate change musical.
You thought the NSF was about advancing science? Wrong. Being part of Obama’s federal government, it is about retarding science in the name of ecofascism, which demands we return to the ways of living that characterized the Middle Ages so as to supposedly improve the weather and more importantly so as to …
USA Uses UN to Promote Degeneracy at the Expense of Fighting AIDS in Africa
28 Mar 2014 12:06 pm
Malaria kills over 3,000 African children per day according to the UN. This is largely due to the pressure placed on Africa by the West not to use DDT, the harmless wonder drug that largely rid the USA and Europe of malaria, and that liberal elitists now oppose out of fidelity to their radical environmentalist agenda. They are similarly willing to sacrifice African lives to their radical degenerate agenda:
The Obama administration, along with the European Union and the Nordic countries, ganged up on poor African nations over the past two …
Obama Administration Goes Out of Its Way to Enroll Mexican Nationals in ObamaCare
28 Mar 2014 12:01 pm
Readers will recall when Obama proclaimed that illegal aliens would not be sucking still more of our blood by getting free healthcare through ObamaCare, and Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) could not restrain himself from shouting, “You lie!” The establishment media really ripped him a new one: not Obama for lying, but Wilson for pointing it out. By now Wilson’s remark has been totally validated. Not only will illegal aliens be getting healthcare at the expense of law-abiding American citizens through ObamaCare — the Obama Regime is deliberately recruiting them:
The Obama …
Ukrainian Lesson: Fools and Their Guns Are Soon Parted
27 Mar 2014 12:23 pm
Thanks to Germany’s violation of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, which turned the Left against Hitler, information gatekeepers have done an admirable job of reminding us of the crimes of the Third Reich. In contrast, the comparable horrors of the Soviet Union are forgotten, although they persisted for longer, claimed more casualties, and are arguably much more relevant to current events. Ethnic Ukrainian Christina Sterbenz fills in some of the gaps in our education:
In 1932, Joseph Stalin and his forces perpetuated a famine in Ukraine known as “Holodomor,” meaning “death by hunger.” …
BiteLabs: Marketing Salami Made Out of Celebrities
27 Mar 2014 12:18 pm
In Matthew 26:26, Christ said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” These days many Americans seem to worship the shallow degenerates we see on TV. Maybe we should be eating their flesh:
[A] new start-up called BiteLabs is claiming to want to make human test-tube meat a reality. And they want to use celebrities to do it.
How it works:
A sample of tissue containing myosatellite cells (the type of cells that help repair and regrow damaged muscle) will be taken from a person during a biopsy. Those cells are multiplied in …
Gary Sconce and the Liberal War on Choice
26 Mar 2014 1:46 pm
The recent liberal obsession with promoting transsexuals is not about disfigured sexuality, and far less about “intolerance”; it is about attacking the mindset that makes us capable of exercising free will. For example, take a characteristically obsequious piece in the local media on a teacher in Oakhurst, California who is subjecting himself (and his students) to a sex change:
After spring break, 24-year Yosemite High School science and multimedia teacher Gary Sconce will return to teach as [his] true self, [he] says: Karen Adell Scot.
The 56-year-old husband, father and award-winning teacher …
Clean Coal Boondoggle Consumes More Energy Than It Produces
26 Mar 2014 1:41 pm
America is not in decline because of any shortage of natural resources. Due to the destructive ideology of those in charge, our abundant resources cannot be exploited efficiently. A Duke Energy clean coal plant is emblematic:
[T]he complicated, uneconomical boondoggle that Duke Energy built in Edwardsport, Ind. so as to burn coal gas rather than coal – and thus produce less carbon dioxide than a traditional coal plant – may be the dumbest idea to fight imaginary global warming to date. If you swallow the alarmists’ premise and “solutions,” the plant …
Parent Called to School to Attend Special Needs Child, Gets Hauled Off to Jail
25 Mar 2014 1:12 pm
Yet another incident reminds us to think twice before turning over children to the care of the zero tolerance authoritarian kooks who tend to run government schools. A teacher at Walnut Grove Elementary School near Springfield, Missouri put through a frantic phone call to Niakea Williams, informing her that her son Michael was panicking. Michael suffers from Asperger syndrome, which is like autism but with relatively preserved cognitive development.
She rushed to the school, where she was buzzed in by officials. Unbeknownst to Niakea, she had been buzzed in… to the …
New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito Strikes a Pose With Another Che Guevara Fan
25 Mar 2014 9:31 am
Normally, when you see some clueless dope in a Che Guevara shirt, it isn’t worth much more than a roll of the eyes. Sooner or later the fool will learn who Guevara actually was; hopefully this revelation will cause him or her to leave left-wing politics behind. With luck this occurs before the moonbat in question is old enough to vote. But this case is different:
The woman on the right is not a junior high student trying to annoy her parents or even a gullible coed sucking up to her …View More...
American Physical Society Ready to Bail on Global Warming Hoax
24 Mar 2014 12:52 pm
The American Physical Society is the second largest group of physicists in the world, behind only the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft. It has never been the place to look for dopes. In the near future, it will not be the place to look for willing dupes:
The American Physical Society (APS) has signalled a dramatic turnabout in its position on “climate change” by appointing three notorious climate skeptics to its panel on public affairs (POPA).
Professor Richard Lindzen, formerly Alfred P Sloan Professor of Meteorology at Massachussetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a …
Aborted Babies Incinerated to Heat Britain’s Socialist Hospitals
24 Mar 2014 12:48 pm
Jonathan Swift was onto something with his “A Modest Proposal,” in which he suggested solving both overpopulation and hunger by feeding people babies. His approach has been applied by the socialist bureaucrats running the healthcare system in Britain to solve a similar pair of problems: what to do with the babies resulting from casual, irresponsible sex; and how to heat hospitals when our liberal overlords are deliberately causing energy prices to “necessarily skyrocket” on behalf of the polar bears. The ingenious solution:
The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies …
Governmedia Kabuki Theater
21 Mar 2014 11:42 am
Compliments of Stormfax.
Kabuki theater stresses the otherworldly and is highly stylized, so that no one would mistake it for an earnest attempt to reflect what we normally call reality. In this regard, it has heavily influenced White House press briefings. In both cases, the production is not only staged, but so obviously staged as to be creepily surreal:
A CBS reporter from Arizona reveals that President Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, receives questions from the press in advance of his daily press briefing. In fact, she says, the reporters often receive …
Marxist Drug Traffickers Consolidate Power in El Salvador
21 Mar 2014 11:35 am
Meanwhile, as we sit and listen to the media tell us over and over and over again that they still don’t know what happened to the airplane, another domino has fallen to the communists in our backyard. A former Faribundo Marti Liberation Front (FMLF) guerilla commander will now be running El Salvador:
Salvador Sanchez Ceren is the “former” Communist guerrilla declared winner of El Salvador’s presidential elections this week by 6,600 votes. Since 2009, he had served as El Salvador’s Vice President. Ceren’s electoral opponents of the center-right ARENA party alleged …
ZERO TOLERANCE INSANITY: Sixth grader faces expulsion for taking razor blade away from suicidal student, throwing it away
20 Mar 2014 3:44 pm
Every time I read a story about public school zero tolerance policies, I think, “That’s it: the final extreme of insanity. No one could ever top this one.” Then once again educrats prove me wrong:
Last Thursday at Bayside Middle School [in Virginia Beach, Virginia], sixth grader Adrionna Harris came to the aid of a classmate who was cutting his arm. She faces expulsion for taking a razor from the student, throwing it away and convincing him what he was doing wasn’t right. She thought she was doing the right thing, …
