Convicted Felon Jesse Jackson Jr. Lives Well at Public Expense

Remember Jesse Jackson Jr., the drunken and mentally disturbed congresscritter who is so conspicuously corrupt that he actually managed to get thrown in jail despite his politically preferred pigmentation and famous parentage? No need to worry about him; he is living quite well — at your expense:

Records from former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s divorce case show how he has been able to collect hefty benefit checks from the federal government after serving time in prison for looting hundreds of thousands of dollars from his campaign fund.

Jackson, 51, receives about $138,400 a year — more than he made as a freshman congressman in 1995. Most of that — about $100,000 — is workers’ compensation and tax-free, according to Chicago attorney Barry Schatz, who is representing Jackson in his divorce proceeding.

The rest of Jackson’s benefits are Social Security Disability Insurance payments, some of which may be taxable, Schatz said.

The payments flow to Jackson because he has bipolar disorder and depression — the issues that led to an extended leave from Congress in 2012…

For the Jackson clan, the scams never end. Certainly this crook’s head is full of loose screws, but how is that worth a fortune to taxpayers? It appears bureaucrats let his lawyers convince them that his mental problems were caused by the stress of being in Congress.

Jackson, a Chicago Democrat, spent 17 years in Congress before resigning while under FBI investigation. He pleaded guilty in 2013 to using about $750,000 in campaign cash over several years for vacations, luxury goods, celebrity memorabilia and other items. At the time he resigned in late November 2012, he was being paid $174,000 a year.

Before quitting, Jackson had taken a leave for treatment for bipolar disorder and depression. …

Jackson, sentenced to 30 months in prison, spent about 22 months in correctional facilities, a halfway house and home detention. He remains on supervised release, or what used to be called parole, a federal official said Wednesday.

If he ever gets bored, he can always run for Congress again. His Southside constituents will forgive him anything; they have already elected him while he was a resident at a mental institution.

Jesse Jackson Junior
A kooky criminal feeding well at the public trough.

Moonbats Fret With Guilt, Thinking They Caused Nice Weather

When it is colder than normal, in contradiction to leftist global warming theory, moonbats bark that cold weather is caused by warm weather, or that only an idiot would mistake weather for climate. When it is nice outside, they grapple with the liberal equivalent of a moral issue:

The correct answer for devout moonbats is as follows:

Anaheim Officer’s House Attacked After Spat With Teens

On Tuesday, an off-duty Anaheim police officer became involved in an altercation with teenage punks. No one but the officer was injured, but he did fire a warning shot into the ground. The aftermath:

Hundreds of people marched through suburban Anaheim streets late Wednesday, some blocking traffic and carrying signs that said “no shooting zone.” Police arrested two dozen people, including children, after the crowd ignored orders to disperse.

A forensics team Thursday searched for evidence at the LAPD officer’s home, which was vandalized Wednesday night, along with the officer’s vehicle.

A second home, located around the corner from the officer’s residence, was mistakenly defaced by protesters who thought it belonged to the LAPD officer. Neighbor Joe Gulrich, 76, said his house was spray-painted and police told him he should leave for his own safety. When he returned late at night, he found a rock had been thrown through his front window.

On Thursday night, a much smaller group of protesters showed up to demonstrate in the neighborhood of the LAPD officer. However, following Wednesday night’s violence and vandalism, Anaheim police in riot gear taped and blocked off the area, preventing them from getting through.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Police Protective League said Thursday the cellphone video shows the officer was physically assaulted by multiple individuals and sustained injuries in Tuesday’s incident.

Civilization seems to be fading away, like a dwindling campfire surrounded by increasingly arrogant wolves.

Nation of Islam and the Enemy on the Inside

A great nation is brought down by its enemies within. America has quite a few of them. Some are more open about it than others:

The Nation of Islam had its annual gathering in Detroit over the weekend and thousands of attendees chanted “Allahu Akbar” as Louis Farrakhan made his way onto the stage.

That is of course the same thing Muslims chant after murdering infidels in their characteristic terror attacks. Muslims of the Nation of Islam variety are more hostile than most, due to their festering obsession with race:

[Farrakhan] blamed the world’s ills on white people.

“For 6,000 years, the people of the earth have suffered under a mischief-making rule. Bloodshed and war, hatred and strife, all because a man with a new color — or the lack thereof — thought that he was better than all of those who inhabited the earth before he was even a thought,” Farrakhan said.

He specifically has it in for the USA. His take on MAGA:

“America will never be made great again,” Farrakhan said. “Her days of greatness are over. The God of justice has come. And America now has to pay for what she has done.”

America has done only one terrible thing that it is danger of paying for: not only tolerating but nurturing enemies with no thought but to destroy it.

Speaking of which, Keith Ellison used to be an active member and local leader of Nation of Islam, and currently still has ties to Islamic extremists devoted to America’s downfall. There is a good chance that Democrats will chose him to lead their party tomorrow.

Chris Cuomo Denounces Dad as “Intolerant” for Not Wanting Naked Boys in 12-Year-Old Daughter’s Locker Room

Trump has pulled the federal government back from Obama’s lunatic decree that boys be allowed to use girls’ restroom and locker room facilities in public schools. Liberals have reacted as if he were imposing segregated drinking fountains. Chris Cuomo, “mainstream” media propagandist and brother of the tyrannical New York Governor who has proclaimed that conservatives are not welcome in his state, sums up their twisted mentality. This is his response to a guy who wonders what to tell his 12-year-old daughter who doesn’t want naked boys in her locker room:

Anyone who doesn’t want their children corrupted by exposure to degeneracy and depravity is bad and must be shamed.

This could be the issue that finally consigns progressivism to oblivion. No reasonable person who hasn’t been brainwashed to the point of insensibility wants males using private facilities intended for females. Trying to impose transgenderism on schoolgirls may finally get it through people’s heads that the liberal agenda is not merely wrong, but sick. You can’t compromise with it any more than you would compromise with cancer.

At the very least people should now understand that the liberal conception of “tolerance” is a form of tyranny.

Free Food for Black People

free-food-for-black-people
You get what you pay for.

The special privileges go beyond hiring priority, unfireability, lower expectations, freedom from accountability, protection from criticism, and the slack-jawed adoration of white liberals. Persons of politically preferred pigmentation also qualify for free food:

A makeshift “black people”-only food cart caused plenty of indigestion Thursday in the Bronx, outraging onlookers who called the stunt racist.

A man and a woman set up the cart around 9 a.m. outside Bronx Supreme Court, advertising their free doughnuts and juice on Styrofoam plates.

Their three handmade signs read: “Free Food For Black People.”

Although whites were denied free donuts, the moonbats with the cart were open-minded, opining that Mexicans qualify as black.

Witches to Cast Spell on Donald Trump

calling-all-witches

Moonbats have a busy evening ahead of them. Running the corrupt and incompetent Shrillary Rotten didn’t work out, so tonight they will fall back on casting spells:

Starting at midnight on Friday, witches around the country are calling for a mass spell to be cast on Donald Trump every night of a waning crescent moon until he’s driven from office.

The spell was publicized by Michael M. Hughes, who told ELLE.com that it was tweaked from multiple spells he saw going around private witchcraft groups. He published it on Extra News Feed because he felt “it would be very welcome to a lot of people.” It quickly spread, with events being formed around the country and support on social media.

Details of the ritual are described here. Make sure to check out the Fakebook page tomorrow to see if the moonbats have posted laugh-worthy photos of their antics.

Campus Speech Codes Silence Everyone

People support authoritarian measures because they mistakenly believe they will be the one wearing the boot stamping a human face. In reality, someone else wears the boot. That’s why when free speech dies, everyone suffers. The Washington Examiner’s Adam Steinbaugh reports on campus complaints of offensive speech:

I surveyed more than 230 such reporting systems for the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education and asked dozens of schools for records about their Bias Response Teams. What I found is detailed in a new report describing how universities broadly define “bias” to include virtually any speech, protected or not, that subjectively offends anyone. …

The threat to expressive rights isn’t confined to speech from the Left or the Right. Bias reporting systems are being used to report all kinds of speech.

At Appalachian State University, students reported on one another for chalked messages that were pro-Trump as well as chalked messages calling Trump a “RACIST.” The former were reported by students as “hate speech,” the latter “politically biased slander” that was “unlawful.”

While students at Ohio State University reported each other for comparing Hillary Clinton to Hitler, students at Texas Tech were whispering to administrators that the Black Student Union’s tweets in support of the Black Lives Matter movement offended them. Meanwhile, the University of Oregon saw it fit to dictate “community expectations” to students who had the audacity to complain about oppression.

Yes, complaining about oppression may bring the Bias Response Team to your dorm room to explain why your views were insufficiently polite, decent, and non-controversial.

Going to college these days must be like enduring one of those excruciating social situations where if you make any comment more meaningful than weather observations, you will be treated like you let rip with a robust air biscuit.

Free speech is either for everyone, or it is for no one.

Muslim Leader Says Beating Women Is a Last Resort

Apologies to the Islamic faith. I didn’t realize that it has been treating women worse than dogs only as a last resort:

A senior Muslim leader has said using violence against women is a “last resort” for men.

President of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils Keysar Trad described beating women as “step three” in a process of dealing with issues in relationships, after counselling and buying chocolates or “taking her out on a dinner”.

Trad is annoyed that Australia won’t let him take a second wife, even though it is allowed by sharia law, which unsurprisingly he advocates.

Meanwhile, we are told that Islam can be reconciled with feminism.

Moonbat Sheriff Releases 400 Criminal Illegal Aliens Into Phoenix Every 10 Days

I am missing Sheriff Joe more every day, thanks to his George Soros–backed replacement Paul Penzone:

An average of 400 “criminal illegal immigrants” are being released every 10 days by the newly elected sheriff in Arizona’s most populous county, federal law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch, many of them violent offenders. It’s part of Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone’s new policy to protect illegal aliens, even those who have committed serious state crimes, from deportation. Under a longtime partnership between the county and the feds, the Phoenix field office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was notified when “aliens unlawfully present with additional Arizona charges” were released from the Maricopa County Jail, which is one of the nation’s largest with a population of about 8,000. That ended when Penzone, who refers to illegal immigrants as “guests,” took office this year and, though he formally announced the change last week, it was put into practice much earlier. …

Before the new sheriff changed the system, ICE would send a wagon every 12 hours to pick up criminal illegal aliens scheduled to be released from the main jail in Maricopa County. Under the new policy, Maricopa County officials are not giving ICE “any notification at all of the release of criminal illegals,” according to an agency official in Phoenix who’s not authorized to talk and can’t be identified. Without cooperation from county authorities, federal agents would have to stand at the door to the jail 24 hours a day and guess which prisoner should be deported, sources said.

Since that is not feasible, the criminal illegal aliens run free to wreak havoc.

If Penzone is not violating federal law with this behavior, then Congress needs to pass a new law, pronto.

Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters Are Leaving Behind Big Mess

We are to believe that the leftist hooligans who have been squatting on federal land in North Dakota for the past 6 months to stall the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline care about the environment. I hope the polar bears don’t mind their carbon emissions:

dapl_fire

At least this time they are only burning their wooden hovels, rather than tires, like they did earlier to block Highway 1806:

dapl-burn-tires

From USA Today:

Most of the protesters left the encampment near Cannon Ball, N.D., by Wednesday’s deadline. Ten were arrested and up to 50 remaining demonstrators must leave Thursday, Burgum said.

Remnants of the camp went up in flames Wednesday when protesters set fire to wooden housing as part of a departure ceremony. About 20 fires were set and two people, a 7-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl, suffered burns. …

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers set the Wednesday deadline, citing the threat of spring flooding.

The flooding is a problem because it could wash garbage and sewage from the moonbat encampment into Lake Oahe, which the protesters are supposedly keeping pristine by not letting any grownups run a pipeline under it.

Authorities sent buses to take protesters to the North Dakota capital of Bismarck, where they were offered fresh clothing, bus fare and food and hotel vouchers.

Courtesy of you, Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer. This is on top of the $33 million state and local taxpayers have spent to keep this carnival under control. Plus we are paying the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to clean up hippies’ garbage.

New York Times: To Hell With Working Class Whites

This may be good news for the GOP, but it is bad news for the country. To judge by its flagship publication, liberals learned nothing from the 2016 election, and plan to escalate their extreme moonbattery, writing off whites as largely irrelevant as they pin their hopes on demographic Third Worldization, and positioning the Democrat Party ever more clearly as the party that takes from whites to give to non-whites. This recent New York Times op-ed is alarming:

The Democratic National Committee will choose its next leader on Saturday, and when it does it should choose a leader who will resist the pressure to pursue the wrong white people. Hundreds of articles have been written about the imperative of attracting more support from white working-class voters who supported Barack Obama in 2012 but then bolted to back Donald J. Trump.

The far more important — and largely untold — story of the election is that more Obama voters defected to third- and fourth-party candidates than the number who supported Mr. Trump. That is the white flight that should most concern the next D.N.C. chairman, because those voters make up a more promising way to reclaim the White House. The way to win them back is by being more progressive, not less.

To hell with the white working class. Dems just need to get people with hammer & sickle stickers on their Priuses to stop voting for Jill Stein and everything will be rosy — thanks to the ever-growing non-white population.

Whites who voted for both Obama and Trump are sneeringly dismissed as “conservative whites.”

After the election, people laughed at Shrillary for trying to compete in Arizona and Georgia, which she lost anyway, while ignoring the Rust Belt, which was crucial to Trump’s victory. The NY Times advises doubling down on this failed strategy.

The electoral action for Democrats may have once been in the Rust Belt, but it’s now moving west and south.

The editorial fervently endorses the ultra-radical Keith Ellison for Chairman of the DNC. If voters in Arizona and Georgia didn’t go for Shrillary, they are not going for an even further-left party guided by this Nation of Islam alumnus with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. But the Times likes him because he rallies the ultra-left base.

Nice as it is to see liberals consign themselves to electoral oblivion, the long-term effect of the Democrat Party going completely off the rails is not likely to be positive. If the swinging pendulum puts them back in power, we will follow Venezuela down the tubes.

University of Michigan Student Group Demands White-Free Space for Plotting Social Justice

Imagine a student KKK group demanding a special space on campus where no blacks are allowed, so it could scheme against blacks without them learning what it is up to. Outrageous, right? Yet we barely bat an eye at this:

A student activist group at the University of Michigan [Students4Justice] is demanding campus officials provide them with “a permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.”

In this context, “social justice” means “racial revenge.”

The clamor for a segregated space for students of color to organize social justice efforts comes even as the public university builds a $10 million center for black students in the center of campus.

But as we know by now, way too much is never enough to satisfy campus moonbats, who have learned that the more belligerently they bellow their outlandish demands, the more obsequiously these demands will be granted by fellow-traveling educrats.

In their demands, students explain why the new black student center is not enough, “because we want a space solely dedicated to community organizing and social justice work specifically for people of color.”

If I didn’t know better, I would think that was racist. Isn’t it the worst thing in the world to be racist?

Gasps The Michigan Review:

The same organization that criticizes the University for failing to create “an environment that engages in diversity, equity and inclusion,” is calling upon the University to undermine these ideals by facilitating a sort of de facto segregation? One where space and resources are designated for students based solely on the color of their skin?

Other demands by Students4Justice include more race-based faculty hiring.

This idiocy would end quickly if universities would discard Affirmative Action and only accept students with the aptitude and motivation to learn, rather than fritter away their time behaving like hooligans.

Marketing the Corruption of Children: Transgender Jazz Jennings Doll

Moonbattery.com readers were first introduced to Jazz Jennings after his parents had made him into a trophy transsexual in kindergarten. This paid off for all involved with a reality television show. Now Jazz is a product for purchase:

Jazz Jennings, the first reality television transgender activist, is now the world’s “first transgender doll.”

The Tonner Doll Company unveiled their “Jazz” doll, complete with feminine hair and makeup, to the market this week, and, across the country, parents of particularly woke children rejoiced, as they no longer had to stomach the hetero-normative gender binary when choosing toys.

Let’s hope the Jazz doll is not anatomically correct. The “real” Jazz has not yet undergone sexual mutilation a.k.a. “gender confirmation” surgery.

[His] parents told the media that Jazz “came out” to the public on [his] 5th birthday, when [he] wore a one-piece girl’s bathing suit to [his] party.

Ever since, they have promoted their pawn relentlessly, with the eager help of the depraved media establishment. Young Jazz has published a memoir on his life as a transgender teen, and has been interviewed by Katie Couric and Oprah Winfrey.

The Tonner Doll company, which makes collectible dolls for adults, is sculpting the doll based on Jazz’s appearance along with the pink shirt and jean shorts Jazz sports on her memoir. It debuted at the New York Toy Fair this past weekend. A variation of the doll sports a sparkling white ballerina dress. …

Unlike with its other dolls, Tonner intends to market the transgender doll to children, starting in July.

It is appropriate that a doll would be based on Jazz, who himself is in effect a doll dressed by his parents as an indulgence in make-believe. The toy will serve the same purpose he does: to advance a social engineering agenda so sick that prior (and hopefully future) generations would find it incomprehensible.
