Catholic Barry University Rolls Out the Red Carpet for Sympathetic Students in Support of the Islamic State
Normal Americans gasped in astonishment when Project Veritas revealed the willingness of a high-level educrat at Cornell to devote funds to bringing in a speaker from the Islamic State and even to allow a terrorist training camp on campus. But surely not all universities are run by people that evil and insane. Cornell is Ivy League; the ideologically depraved liberal elitists at these schools went completely off the rails decades ago.
Let’s try a religious school — like Catholic Barry University in Miami. Surely they will react with horror, considering that the Islamic State has been systematically and exceedingly brutally murdering Christians, including women and children.
Or then again, maybe not:
If you want to understand how it is possible that Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States, take a look at higher education. From there the mortal infection is spreading throughout society. If we don’t find a way to root it out, our nation will die of it.

In the 1970s, communist terrorists went from setting off bombs to infiltrating the education establishment. An example is Ronald Fliegelman:
The “bomb guru” for the terrorist group the Weather Underground never served a day in jail — but he did spend decades teaching in New York City classrooms, a new book reveals.
Ronald Fliegelman built explosives for the Weather Underground, a far-left group that launched a domestic bombing campaign in the 1960s and ’70s, including one explosion inside NYPD headquarters.
But when the group dissolved, Fliegelman managed to safely fade away into the square life. For 25 years, he worked as a public special-education teacher, retiring to a quiet life in Park Slope, Brooklyn, according to “Days of Rage: America’s Radical Underground, the FBI, and the Forgotten Age of Revolutionary Violence” (Penguin Press).
Fliegelman isn’t the only prominent member of the Weather Underground to escape punishment and go into education.
Under the leadership of co-founder Bill Ayers — who went on to become a University of Illinois professor whose political relationship with then-candidate Barack Obama was scrutinized during the 2008 presidential campaign — the group also pushed for a sexual revolution.
Their slogan? “Smash monogamy.”
To achieve their goals, the militant group — popularly known as the Weathermen, derived from the Bob Dylan lyric, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows” — embarked on a years-long bombing campaign, targeting places it considered pillars of US imperialism, capitalism, racism and anything contrary to their “ism” of choice: communism.
Bill Ayers went on to launch Barack Obama’s political career from the apartment he shared with fellow terrorist Bernardine Dohrn. Compared to that, Fliegelman’s bombs were virtually harmless.

At the zoo there are certain cages it may be unwise to approach wearing your best shirt. Likewise, there are certain protests it would be prudent to avoid — for the same reason:
A bucketload of human excrement flung at a statue has toppled a symbol of British imperialism in South Africa, marking the emergence of a new generation of black protest against white oppression.
Hold it right there. What white oppression? The country has been turned over to black communists. Whites have lived in South Africa for centuries, establishing it as an outpost of civilization, making possible a much higher standard of living for all inhabitants of the region. But now whites are second-class citizens, systematically discriminated against by the government. They know it is only a matter of time until South Africa goes full Zimbabwe and starts killing them on an even larger scale than is happening already.
As always, uncivilized behavior by leftists produces eager cooperation from liberal authorities:
The senate of the University of Cape Town (UCT) on Friday bowed to student demands that a brooding bronze statue of colonialist Cecil John Rhodes should be removed from the campus.
UCT, the oldest university in South Africa and regularly ranked as the best on the continent, was built on land donated by Rhodes, a mining magnate who died in 1902.
If the name sounds familiar, you could be thinking of the country named after this noted philanthropist. Rhodesia used to be the breadbasket of Africa. These days the people are starving as farms lie fallow, having been confiscated from the whites who made them productive. Now that the population is no longer “oppressed,” it subsists under the inept and tyrannical rule of a Marxist dictator. Zimbabwe is the happy ending liberals have in mind for what’s left of South Africa.
In the meantime, all vestiges of Western Civilization are being methodically eradicated in the name of “antiracism” — i.e., racism against whites:
In the east coast city of Durban, students at the University of KwaZulu Natal splattered white paint and anti-racism slogans on a statue of Britain’s King George V.
And at Rhodes University in the Eastern Cape, activists want the institution to be renamed.
As America’s fundamental transformation progresses, before long the Founding Fathers will receive the same treatment as Cecil Rhodes, until they have been erased from history.

Some unscrupulous birds, lacking the skill or energy to build their own nests, take over the nests of more industrious birds. The same practice takes place in religion, as moonbats hollow out Christianity and replace it with their own cult of moonbattery.
For an appalling example, visit Pray and Fast for the Climate.
This is priceless:
We hope that God will use our prayers to influence politicians, to build a powerful platform for change, to strengthen our campaigning and to inspire others.
Note they do not pray that God will prevent the planet from burning up, because the ever-changing climate isn’t the issue. Influencing politicians and building a “powerful platform for change” are the issue — i.e., coercive hard left politics.
While praying it is best to avoid violating the First Commandment:
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Given that global warming rhetoric is a thin veneer spread over confiscatory oligarchical collectivism, you could say #10 is also getting abused:
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
Pray and Fast for the Climate ecomoonbats aren’t the only birdbrains appropriating the nests of others. According to the increasingly farcical Episcopal Church, there is nothing sinful about homosexuality, despite the Bible forcefully and repeatedly averring otherwise. But it is a sin to suspect we are being lied to about global warming:
According to the presiding bishop [i.e., chief pastor] of the Episcopal Church Katherine Jefferts Schori, denying climate change is a sin.
She says Jesus “insists” that Earth’s citizens reduce their carbon footprint and proselytize others to do the same.
Schori kicked off a 30-day challenge in Los Angeles on Tuesday that the church labeled “The Climate Change Crisis.” As keynote speaker, the former-marine-biologist-turned priest, used the event to preach environmental stewardship. …
Noting that there are “a few very loud voices” who deny climate change, Jefferts Schori opted to brush them aside because they are motivated by “greed, self-centered political interests, [and] willful blindness.”
She then labeled those actions a sin.
Greed and self-centered political interests explain why crony capitalists, global warming profiteers, and leftist demagogues push the “climate change” hoax. Willful blindness is why fools go along with it.

Not all Iranians are brutally repressive Islamic barbarians — but the ones running the government are. Similarly, not all Americans are contemptible ideologically deranged traitors — but the ones running the government are. Although Iran (a.k.a. Persia) has been a rival of the West since the days of Leonidas, those two governments now work together toward a common goal:
An Iranian journalist who defected from his country while covering its ongoing nuclear talks has revealed startling information regarding America’s position at the negotiating table.
Amir Hossein Motaghi, who reportedly was employed at Iran’s state-run Iran Student Correspondents Association, told a London-based Iranian opposition channel that the U.S. was shilling for Iran in the ongoing negotiations over the regime’s nuclear weapons program.
“The US negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal,” Mottaghi told Irane Farda, according to UK’s The Telegraph.
A common impression has been confirmed.
[Mottaghi] is now seeking political asylum in Switzerland, after utilizing his opportunity to cover the talks in order to flee his home country. …
“My conscience would not allow me to carry out my profession anymore,” Motaghi said of his frustration working under the Iranian regime’s strict controls. He added that there was no “sense” in becoming a journalist in Iran because he only wrote whatever information was fed to him.
You can see why Motaghi chose not to defect to the USA. What would be the point?

Following the liberal establishment going overboard to drive home its cherished notion that local police are villains who hunt and kill innocent blacks (and who presumably deserve to be killed in return), it seems shooting cops has become the new national pastime — and not only in Ferguson and New York, the twin Ground Zeros for the “black lives matter” campaign. From Boston:
Police Commissioner William Evans said Saturday Boston police officer John Moynihan remains in critical condition after he was shot “without provocation” on Friday night in Roxbury.
Without provocation? There has been plenty of provocation — from the Obama Administration, from Al Sharpton, and from the cultural Marxist “mainstream” media. It may or may not have had a bearing on this incident, but it certainly has not been intended to make the job of the police safer.
Evans said six officers approached [Angelo] West’s car, but they did not have their guns drawn. At that point, police say West began shooting, hitting Moynihan from point blank range in the face.
As West ran away, police say he continued to shoot at officers and emptied the chamber of his gun before they shot and killed him.
Good thing the shooting was recorded on video. Otherwise who knows what the “hands up don’t shoot” liars would say happened? West could be on his way to join Michael Brown in the moonbat pantheon.

There is something noble about the patience and loyalty of a dog tied to a parking meter, waiting stoically on a tiny patch of concrete as its owner unhurriedly sips cocktails in a bar. Yet it is hard to find anything noble about Obama’s lapdog media:
It’s no secret that President Obama is in Florida this weekend to play some golf, but don’t expect any reports about his golf game. For whatever reason, the White House declared a news lid just as the president was about to tee off. Rather than head back to their hotel 15 miles away, however, the press pool voted instead to take shelter in a maintenance shed so as to remain somewhat close to the president.
Maybe they will be rewarded with a pat on the head the next time Obama deigns to let them near.

An unborn baby is just a clot of tissue. Killing it is no different than having a wart removed. Except of course when it comes to Demon Tobacco:
A study produced by England’s Durham and Lancaster Universities has put a face to the negative effects of smoking during pregnancy. The researchers produced ultrasound scans of unborn babies shielding their eyes and moving their faces uncomfortably as their mothers smoked. It is this batch of telling images that suddenly has liberals up in arms about the well being of the preborn – you know, those tiny lives they had previously dismissed as “masses of cells?” …
Cosmopolitan, a women’s publication unapologetic about its pro-abortion agenda, responded to the study with this article, “Disturbing Ultrasounds Show How Unborn Babies React When Their Mothers Smoke.”
Even unborn babies matter if they give progressives ammunition to use in the Culture War so as to impose their nanny state culture.
Does this make liberals hypocrites on abortion? Not at all. They can argue that they support dismembering unborn babies in the womb so as to protect them from the harmful effects of their mothers’ smoking.
Most mothers don’t smoke. But nonetheless unborn babies are certain to be exposed to second-hand smoke at some point.
Why take chances with the health of the next generation? Best to play it safe and kill them.

Here is what Queef has been yapping about this time:
On the day Republican Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed SB101 — the Religious Freedom Restoration Act — into law, ESPN host Keith Olbermann took to Twitter to call on both the NCAA and National Football League to no longer hold any events in the state.
Regarding the law,
Senate Bill 101 prohibits state or local governments from substantially burdening a person’s ability to exercise their religion — unless the government can show that it has a compelling interest and that the action is the least-restrictive means of achieving it. It takes effect July 1.
Although the bill does not mention sexual orientation, opponents fear it could allow business owners to deny services to gays and lesbians for religious reasons.
Despite continuing to pretend that they are victims so as to enjoy the privileged status of the oppressed, homosexuals have the whip hand in today’s society. They have exploited this by inventing a new sport: find a business run by devout Christians, demand they take part in blasphemous rituals that make a mockery of their faith, sue them if they refuse. Either the Christians betray their beliefs, or their business is destroyed by the authorities. Either way, the fun-loving militant perverts win. Bakers, innkeepers, and photographers are favorite targets.
Arizona’s legislature passed a law to put an end to this appalling practice, but our RINO Governor at the time did not have the guts to stand up to liberal bullies in the media who enjoy watching the sport from the sidelines, rooting of course for the troublemaking deviants against the Christian business owners. Fortunately for Indiana, Mike Pence is made of sterner stuff than Jan Brewer. He doesn’t seem to mind a few Queef Olbermanns nipping at his ankles.
The first RFRA was a 1993 federal law that was signed into law by Democratic president Bill Clinton. It unanimously passed the House of Representatives, where it was sponsored by then-congressman Chuck Schumer, and sailed through the Senate on a 97-3 vote.
In 1997, the Supremes “held that federal RFRA was generally inapplicable against state and local laws,” thus the need for state versions — not to oppress privileged homosexual thugs, but to defend what remains of the religious freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment.

Can any lawyers out there explain why this scofflaw is not in prison?
Hillary Rodham Clinton wiped her email server “clean,” permanently deleting all emails from it, the Republican chairman of a House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks said Friday.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said the former secretary of state has failed to produce a single new document in recent weeks and has refused to relinquish her server to a third party for an independent review, as Gowdy has requested. …
Clinton, a likely Democratic presidential candidate, faced a Friday deadline to respond to a subpoena for emails and documents related to Libya, including the 2012 attacks in a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
The Benghazi committee demanded further documents and access to the server after it was revealed that Clinton [illegally] used a private email account and server during her tenure at State.
As Reince Priebus points out, “Even Nixon didn’t destroy the tapes.”
Nixon was removed from the presidency for misconduct that pales in comparison to Shrillary’s, while even now Shrillary is a favorite to be placed into the presidency.
Think of the misdeeds that must be documented in those emails for her to go to such lengths to keep them secret. Very likely, Shrillary doesn’t mind if we are left assuming the worst because reality is still worse than anything we could imagine regarding Benghazi, influence peddling to foreign governments, Huma Abedin’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Devil knows what else.
If she ends up in the White House instead of the Big House, the contempt Americans feel for our government will be absolute, and the concept of rule of law will be regarded as a joke.

Back in 2008, Obama made his unsuitability for the presidency obvious by dreaming aloud of a federal police force that would be “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the massive US military. Operation Jade Helm suggests that this evil dream could be coming true as — Posse Comitatus be damned — the military morphs into a domestic army:
Seven Southwestern states will soon be infiltrated by 1,200 military special ops personnel as part of a controversial domestic military training in which some of the elite soldiers will operate undetected among civilians.
Operation Jade Helm begins in July and will last for eight weeks. Soldiers will operate in and around towns in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado where some of them will drop from planes while carrying weapons loaded with blanks in what military officials have dubbed Realistic Military Training.
But with residents of the entire states of Texas and Utah dubbed ‘hostile’ for the purposes of the exercises, Jade Helm has some concerned the drills are too realistic.
You have to wonder: if Hope & Change does degenerate to the point of martial law, will it arrive in the guise of an exercise, to allow forces to be put in place without raising the alarm, so that we will be unprepared when the trap is sprung?

Barbara Lee Reintroduces Legislation to Prevent Women From Being Forced Into Prostitution by Global Warming
Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., has re-introduced legislation that forces the government to address all “policies and programs in the United States that are globally related to climate change” through the lens of gender.
Why not? Climate change is total B.S.; feminism is total B.S. Perfect fit.
Her resolution, “Recognizing the disparate impact of climate change on women and the efforts of women globally to address climate change,” asserts that long term and catastrophic weather changes will result in drought and destructive weather events such as flooding, which could lead to food shortages, joblessness and disease, along with economic and political crisis on a regional scale.
Since “women will disproportionately face harmful impacts from climate change, particularly in poor and developing nations where women regularly assume increased responsibility for growing the family’s food and collecting water, fuel, and other resources,” the measure reads, they will be the most desperate and vulnerable, forced into situations, “such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage.”
Fortunately Big Government can address this problem by passing ludicrous resolutions.
