Federal Aviation Administration: Whites Need Not Apply
  11 Jun 2014     1:33 pm

Good thing we have the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Sure it tramples on fundamental liberties like freedom of association and allows the federal government to meddle in private relationships, but at least no one can be racially discriminated against — unless of course they belong to the majority population:
Thousands of potential FAA air traffic control trainees, with College Initiative Training (CTI) degrees or previous military experience, have been told by the federal agency they are no longer eligible for job interviews. Instead, the FAA has decided to accept less …

The Solastalgia Crisis
  11 Jun 2014     1:30 pm

Some health crises are probably invented by pharmaceutical companies to help sell drugs. But most are concocted for political reasons. A cartoonishly obvious example is solastalgia:
It describes a form of psychic or existential distress caused by environmental change, such as mining or climate change.
A joke, right? Not according to the warmist ideologues at The Weather Channel:
[I]t’s clear that some of the biggest impacts from Earth’s rapidly warming climate occur within us as human beings, like the sense of loss and trauma felt by hurricane survivors after everything they know – …

Via Qatar, Obama Administration Has Been Equipping Taliban With Stinger Missiles
  10 Jun 2014     1:44 pm

Obama hasn’t just been releasing their top commanders. Inadvertently or otherwise, he has been equipping the Taliban with Stinger missiles. Author Kenneth Timmerman reports:
Miliary records and sources reveal that on July 25, 2012, Taliban fighters in Kunar province successfully targeted a US Army CH-47 helicopter with a new generation Stinger missile. …
Lodged in the right nacelle, [investigators] found one fragment that contained an entire serial number.
The investigation took time. Arms were twisted, noses put out of joint. But when the results came back, they were stunning: The Stinger tracked back …

Transgender Priest at Washington National Cathedral
  10 Jun 2014     1:40 pm

The only time liberals will show a sincere interest in Christianity is when they see an opportunity to subvert it in order to destroy it. They have been making headway:
The most visible Episcopal church in the U.S. is hosting its first openly transgender priest this month.
The Rev. Cameron Partridge is set to give the June 22 sermon at the Washington National Cathedral in Northwest.
Dean of the cathedral, the Rev. Gary Hall, said in a statement that he hopes Mr. Partridge’s presence sends a message of support for the transgender community.
“We …

Absurd Excuses Used to Clear Gitmo Terrorists for Release
  9 Jun 2014     2:30 pm

Obama wants the worst-of-the-worst Islamic terrorists at Guantanamo freed, and he doesn’t care how preposterous the excuses he has to use to do it. He may never top the trade of five top Taliban commanders for a deserter and probable defector for sheer absurdity, but here are some more that are good for laughs in al Qaeda circles:
One al Qaeda suspect captured in Afghanistan is considered reformed because he took up yoga and read a biography of the Dalai Lama. Another is eligible for release because of his “positive attitude.”
And …

Federal Government Forbids Aging Cheese on Wooden Boards
  9 Jun 2014     2:25 pm

Tyranny has existed throughout human history, but modern liberalism is unique in that its proponents grind under their heels even the most innocuous and irrelevant aspects of society. For example, the federal government has now forbidden aging cheese on wooden boards:
A sense of disbelief and distress is quickly rippling through the U.S. artisan cheese community, as the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) this week announced it will not permit American cheesemakers to age cheese on wooden boards.
FDA petty tyrants issued a statement consisting mainly of bureaucratic gobbledygook declaring the …

New York Soda Ban Rises From the Grave
  6 Jun 2014     3:09 pm

Nanny state totalitarian Michael Bloomberg is no longer Mayor of New York. But progressive tyranny works like a ratchet; notch by notch it is pulled tighter, never giving way in the opposite direction. So not even the most absurd of his restrictions are going anywhere. His soda ban was held up in court. No matter; his successor Bill de Blasio is taking up the cause:
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration urged the state’s highest court on Wednesday to allow New York City to impose former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s proposed ban on …

Extravagant Salaries at Taxpayer-Subsidized Abortion Mill
  6 Jun 2014     3:05 pm

Putting down unwanted children is a highly lucrative industry, yet the #1 abortion business in the country, Planned Parenthood, is massively subsidized by taxpayers. Where does all the money go? A partial answer:
Planned Parenthood likes to paint itself as a crucial provider of affordable women’s health care to the poor. But it also aids the rich. JillStanek.com reports that the Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s 2012 IRS Form 990 shows that CEO Cecile Richards made over one-half million dollars – $523,616 – for the fiscal year ending on June 30, …

Obama Official Implies Bowe Bergdahl Might Have Been Right to Desert
  5 Jun 2014     1:43 pm

No wonder the ideologically insane Obama Regime apparently expected the public to be pleased that it had traded five terrorist commanders for a deserter and probable traitor. The people composing Obama’s bubble don’t see anything wrong with Bowe Bergdahl’s execution-worthy behavior. Check out some of the tweets from Brandon Friedman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs for the Department of Housing and Urban Development:

Here's the thing about Bergdahl and the Jump-to-Conclusions mats: What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership? (1/5)

Border Patrol Plans to Release 500 Illegal Aliens per Week in San Diego Sector
  5 Jun 2014     1:37 pm

The lawless havoc Obama has been releasing upon the innocent goes well beyond the five top terrorist commanders he recently illegally freed from Club Gitmo. This same leftist miscreant is also in charge of defending the integrity of our borders. Consequently,
The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) revealed to Breitbart Texas that the San Diego Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol is making plans to receive, process, and then release 500 illegal aliens into the U.S. per week who were shipped in from Texas, specifically from the Rio Grande Valley Border …

Christian Baker Commanded to Bake Cakes for Gay Weddings
  4 Jun 2014     2:41 pm

Next time someone flippantly says, “It’s a free country,” remind them of this:
A family owned bakery has been ordered to make wedding cakes for gay couples and guarantee that its staff be given comprehensive training on Colorado’s anti-discrimination laws after the state’s Civil Rights Commission determined the Christian baker violated the law by refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, in Lakewood, Colorado was directed to change his store policies immediately and force his staff to attend the training sessions. For …

Moonbat Art: Hobby Lobby Aborted Baby Jesus
  4 Jun 2014     2:36 pm

Pro-abortion “artist” Ron English demonstrates the sophistication of modern liberal argumentation:
Recently Ron English uploaded a video depicting a baby Jesus doll hanging from a coat hanger with a sign saying: Hobby Lobby Aborted Baby Jesus.
It is unclear who orchestrated this vandalism or who produced the video. But Ron English just happened to go to the exact Hobby Lobby where these dolls were placed:

English writes on his blog, “While at Hobby Lobby in Poughkeepsie NY, Ron came across a rack which held four crucified aborted Baby Jesus’. Wonder if they are …

Three Laws Obama Violated by Releasing Top Taliban Terrorists, in Escalating Importance
  3 Jun 2014     3:11 pm

When Obama traded five top terrorists selected by the Taliban for a deserter who might have defected, he arrogantly ignored a law requiring Congress to be given 30-day notice. But that isn’t the only law he violated. It is against the law to provide material assistance to a terrorist organization. Andrew Napolitano makes an excellent case for prosecution:

Megan Kelly’s assertion that Obama didn’t violate the law because he didn’t know that releasing their most prized personnel would assist terrorists takes Fair & Balanced attempts to give the other side even …

Annual Direct Cost of Obama’s “Climate” Power Grab
  3 Jun 2014     3:03 pm

Via the Institute for 21st Century Energy, here’s an estimate of how hard Obama’s phony bid to command the very weather through bureaucratic regulation will hit us each year in increased electricity costs (click for full size):

I’m guessing Obama won’t be too broken up that the South gets hit particularly hard.
Of course, increasing energy costs drives up the price of literally all goods and services, in addition to destroying jobs, so this only scratches the surface. What we are witnessing is the deliberate lowering of the American standard of living …

Medicare Will Now Cover Sex Change Operations
  2 Jun 2014     3:53 pm

As Big Government tightens it grip on healthcare, the field will increasing reflect the values of the liberal ruling class. Already, neglected vets are dying of treatable diseases, while bureaucrats announce that taxpayers will now foot the bill for sex change operations:
Transgender people receiving Medicare may no longer be automatically denied coverage for sex reassignment surgeries, a U.S. Department of Health and Services review board ruled Friday in a groundbreaking decision that recognizes the procedures as a medically necessary and effective treatment for individuals who do not identify with their …

Polar Bear Specialists Admit They Invented Population Numbers
  2 Jun 2014     3:50 pm

As for those polar bears allegedly menaced by insufficient bureaucratic suppression of economic activity — the ones that if shrieking warmists weren’t full of baloney would have been extinct by now:
Researchers with the IUCN [International Union for Conservation of Nature] Polar Bear Specialist Group (PBSG) recently admitted to experienced zoologist and polar bear specialist Susan Crockford that the estimate given for the total number of polar bars in the Arctic was “simply a qualified guess given to satisfy public demand.”
Public demand? I think they mean political demand.
Crockford has been critical …

Big Government, Big Unions, and the VA Debacle
  30 May 2014     1:48 pm

It is tempting to say that the Veterans Administration crisis — which has taken the lives of at least 40 veterans in Phoenix alone — is the inevitable consequence of socializing medicine. But more than the federal bureaucracy was required to make the VA the catastrophic debacle it is today; it took the combination of two of the most pernicious elements in our society: Big Government and Big Unions. Kimberley Strassel reports for the Wall Street Journal:
The VA battle is only just starting, but any real reform inevitably ends with …

Freedom Index

Bad as Republicans can be, Democrats are far worse. Next time someone hands you the cliché that there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between the two, point them to the Freedom Index:
A Congressional Scorecard Based on the U.S. Constitution rates congressmen based on their adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements.
If you are unlucky enough to be represented by a Democrat, check out his or her score: chances are good it will be well under 50%.

Obama’s Appalling West Point Commencement Address
  29 May 2014     3:32 pm

The terrible significance of the Obama presidency hit home during the appalling speech he gave yesterday to the 2014 graduating class of West Point.
American Thinker sums it up like this:
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 …

San Francisco Forbids Keeping Your Own Stuff in Your Own Garage
  29 May 2014     3:26 pm

If you want a preview of how bad liberal totalitarianism will get if it prevails, have a look at San Francisco, where it already has. Among the many liberties you may have never appreciated until it has been taken away by the sort of micromanaging moonbats who preside over local government there is the right to store your own stuff in your own garage:
Residents of the liberal city are banned from using their garage to store any personal property other than a vehicle. Chapter Six of the San Francisco Housing …
