Hollyweird twerp Leonardo DiCaprio takes the global warming hoax so seriously that he demands massive government intervention. Speaking before his fellow authoritarians at the United Nations, he has made proclamations like this:
“This disaster [i.e., the conspicuously nonexistent global warming crisis] has grown beyond the choices that individuals make. This is now about our industries and governments around the world taking decisive, large-scale action.”
…and even this:
“Protecting our future on this planet depends on the conscious evolution of our species.”
However, he does not take it so seriously that he will forsake constantly flying around in a private jet:
According to newly leaked Sony emails, the actor happily availed himself of more than $200,000 worth of private jet travel in just six weeks in 2014.
According to Sony corporate travel records posted on WikiLeaks Thursday, DiCaprio took six private jet flights during April and May 2014.
Plants that require CO2 for sustenance owe a debt of gratitude to DiCrappio, whose carbon footprint is gargantuan. He makes up for this by calling for the government to lower our standard of living.

“Never again,” the world swore, after it learned of the ghastly medical experiments conducted by Josef Mengele. But that was then. Now we read this:
Researchers in Hawaii are recruiting girls as young as 14 to participate in second trimester abortions, where the preborn baby is 18-24 weeks gestation, in order to test whether or not oxytocin can reduce bleeding in mothers during and after abortion.
The study is being conducted by the University of Hawaii and the University of Washington in Seattle – both public universities, which leads to the obvious question: is the government funding this study?
Of course it is, directly or otherwise. We are quickly approaching the point where no scientific research can be conducted that isn’t funded by the government.
There is no moral issue here, because Democrat National Committee chairmoonbat Debbie Wasserman Schultz has assured us that it is okay to kill even a 7-lb. baby who hasn’t been born yet.
However, the babies might not be the only ones to die:
A second trimester abortion is at least a two-day procedure, where the baby is given heart-stopping medication, then either is delivered the next day or is dismembered by the abortionist. Women have died from having legal abortions this late in pregnancy, such as Jennifer Morbelli, who died in 2013 as a result of a late-term abortion. Tonya Reaves died in 2012 after a dilation and evacuation second trimester abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Chicago. And Karnamaya Mongar was killed by late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell in 2009.
It is a small step from killing babies for medical research to killing other people who find themselves in a defenseless situation.
In the end, the only thing that keeps the gates of hell shut is morality. We have rejected morality in favor of political correctness. Consequently, the gates are coming open.

By now anyone with an IQ above room temperature is wondering how it is possible that people would actually vote for the infamously corrupt, incompetent, and unaccomplished Shrillary Rotten Clinton for president. She has exactly one qualification. College students explain what it is:
If you don’t agree that these people are qualified to be president, you had better shut up because you are a sexist.

No enemy is more dangerous than the enemy within, as supposed Republican Jeb Bush demonstrates by demanding the confirmation of the irresponsible leftist Loretta Lynch as Attorney General:
“I think presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said, according to reports of his stop at the “Politics and Pie” forum in Concord, New Hampshire, on Thursday night. …
“If someone is supportive of the president’s policies, whether you agree with them or not, there should be some deference to the executive,” Bush told reporters. “It should not always be partisan.”
Lynch is supportive of Obama’s catastrophic policies, all right. She has said that all foreigners including illegal aliens have a “right” to compete against American citizens for scarce jobs. Her open contempt for the rule of law disqualifies her for the position of Attorney General.
Jeb’s position puts him to the left even of RINO Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:
McConnell promised before the midterm 2014 election—in which voters delivered him a GOP majority with an historic nine-seat-swing—that if the Senate went Republican, there would be no vote on any attorney general nominee to replace Eric Holder if that nominee supports Obama’s executive amnesty. During her confirmation hearings, she not only endorsed Obama’s executive amnesty—which has since been deemed illegal and unconstitutional by a federal judge, Judge Andrew S. Hanen of Texas, who issued a stay against the program’s implementation—but she came out publicly for an extraordinarily radical position that puts illegal aliens ahead of Americans. …
At this time, there are only five Senate Republicans who plan to support Lynch: Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Susan Collins (R-ME), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Mark Kirk (R-IL).
Even perennial amnesty advocate John McCain is holding back, although you might say he deserves an honorary spot on the list for not pressuring Graham and Flake to withdraw their support.
A vote for Lynch equals a vote for amnesty. A vote for amnesty equals literally millions of votes for the Democrat Party in elections to come, as Obama’s unconstitutional move will throw the invasion of Third World welfare colonists into overdrive if not reversed quickly. Therefore a vote for Jeb equals insanity. His only chance is to get massive Democrat support in open primaries.

In the latest excellent episode of Intellectual Froglegs, Joe Dan compares Reagan’s recovery to Obama’s “recovery,” tips his hat to treasonous transsexual Bradley Manning’s Twitter success, fingers California’s problem (which is not the dry climate), features Jeb Bush in a RINO Snapshot, notes some of the damage inflicted by the liberal establishment media yelling “fire” in crowded theaters, presents the gay wedding cake war as an example of progs eating away at everything of value, makes the case that conservatism is on the rise, urges us to stop attacking fellow countermoonbats and instead go after the libs and the RINOs and more:
You can’t blame people for getting annoyed by the almost comical overabundance of handicapper slots even at places unlikely to attract many people with a legitimate disability (e.g., mountain hiking trails). But some people’s mobility problems are beyond anything diet and exercise could help. Besides, rules are rules — unless you are Shrillary:
Hillary Clinton’s now-famous Scooby Doo van made an appearance in Council Bluffs, Iowa on Thursday for a closed-door meeting with state Democratic Party officials – and it idled in a handicapped parking space from beginning to end.
Footage broadcast by KETV-7 in the nearby city of Omaha, Nebraska, showed the presidential nominee emerging from a cafe, greeting onlookers and walking past the blue handicapped-parking sign to climb into the vehicle.
Secret Service agents are technically federal law enforcement officers, so there was no chance of a parking ticket, even if Scooby had been left unattended.
Once again we see that the rules do not apply to the shady former First Lady; neither does consideration for others or for what others might think of her imperious behavior.
Normally moonbats disapprove of letting vehicles idle because the harmless CO2 that is omitted is regarded as offensive to the polar bears. It is even illegal in some places. But it will never be off limits for Shrillary.

Southeastern Michigan is home to Dearborn, the largest Moslem colony in the USA. It is probably not a coincidence that attempts to show American Sniper, the highest grossing movie of 2014, at colleges in the region have resulted in aggressive attempts at censorship. The University of Michigan initially banned the movie on the grounds that it depicted Americans as the good guys and Islamic terrorists as the bad guys, but later backed down in the face of public outrage. Here’s what happened when they tried to show the movie at nearby Eastern Michigan University:
The Echo, EMU’s student newspaper, reported that roughly 35 students walked onto the stage at the Student Center Auditorium in protest during the 8P.M. screening of the Academy Award-winning film. The group of students worked together to try to shut down the 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. screenings of the film about the deceased Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle.
Protest leaders Ahmed Abbas, Layali Alsadah, Jenna Hamed, and Sabreen Dari were arrested after attempting to shut down the 8 P.M. screening. The protesters were successful in getting the 10 P.M. screening cancelled.
“Once the film started the protesters moved into the theater and disrupted the movie. Department of Public Safety officers were summoned and the protesters were given several warnings. Four protesters were arrested and released shortly thereafter without any charges being sought,” Geoff Larcom, EMU spokesperson, told Campus Reform.
Lacom said that after the students were escorted out, the first showing of the film resumed and finished without interruption. He also noted that the second showing of the movie was cancelled because of the late time and there is further discussion about showing the cancelled screening.
However, according to Student Body President Desmond Miller, the decision to cancel the second showing was a joint-decision he made with EMU President Susan Martin, Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Calvin Phillips, and Campus Life coordinator of arts, entertainment and marketing Gregg Costanzo.
As Obama’s Weather Underground friends used to say, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” If we don’t start pushing back hard, the days of being able to watch anything that has not been preapproved by Moslems and their leftist allies will soon be behind us.
In a totalitarian society, even those uninclined to commit thought crimes never know when the hammer is going to come down on them. The Gulag Archipelago tells of a Russian tailor who stuck a needle into a newspaper while he was working. As fate would have it, the needle went into a picture of Joseph Stalin. A customer reported the tailor to authorities; he was dragged off to the gulags.
Stalin is gone now, but hysterically repressive totalitarianism remains. For example:
Stevenson College is apologizing to its students for serving Mexican food during “Intergalactic” night.
Stevenson College is part of the University of California, Santa Cruz.
In a letter sent out to students, the college apologized for having “a Mexican food buffet,” while also featuring spaceships and aliens. The college received complaints saying the combination was racist because of the association between Mexicans and illegal immigrants.
Because this is still a soft tyranny, those responsible will not be sent to starve in the snow at a gulag. But humiliating punishment will be inflicted on “Programs staff”:
After receiving complaints, Dr. Golz said that the event “demonstrated a cultural insensitivity on the part of the program planners and, though it was an unintentional mistake, I recognize that this incident caused harm within our community and negatively impacted students.”
As a result, Dr. Golz “will require cultural competence training for Programs staff, in addition to implementing mechanisms for future program planning that will ensure college programs are culturally sensitive and inclusive.”
Unless human nature deserves less respect than I give it, attempts at “cultural competence” brainwashing are going to create more than a few committed countermoonbats.
At least we all know that Golz is no thought criminal:
In the letter, Dr. Golz then assures students that she is “an ally for students of color and, in particular, undocumented students.”
That is, students who are in the country illegally and enjoy lavish benefits including subsidized in-state tuition at the expense of lawful American citizens.
Dr. Golz then encourages students to report “hate” to http://reporthate.ucsc.edu/ to cut down on insensitive events like Intergalactic night.
If Golz were a Russian in the 1930s, a portrait of Stalin would hang above her bed. Every night before turning in she would give it a kiss. You never know when someone might be watching through the window.

At this point teachers ought to be collecting combat pay:
Two people, an adult and a juvenile, have been arrested in connection with an assault on a teacher inside a Long Island middle school.
The alleged attack took place Wednesday at the Alverta B. Gray Schultz Middle School in Hempstead.
Police say 34-year-old Annika McKenzie assaulted the female teacher, identified as Catherine Engelhardt, with McKenzie’s attorney, Donald Rollock, claiming the teacher had “put her hands on” McKenzie’s 12-year-old daughter earlier in the day.
That accusation appears not to have merit, as it is “only coming from the lawyer at this point” and McKenzie has not filed a police report.
Authorities say the teacher was shoved against the wall, placed in a headlock and thrown to the floor, where she was kicked and punched by several students, including McKenzie’s 14-year-old niece. The teen was arrested, and both suspects are being charged with second-degree assault. McKenzie also faces a charge of strangulation.
Encouragingly, the teacher was soon released from the hospital, despite evidently having been rendered unconscious in the attack.
Engelhardt is now recovering at home, where she spoke exclusively to Eyewitness News.
“It’s not like I thought a parent would do something, but I knew something violent was going to happen,” she said. “I’ve warned them time and again that the children have no respect for adults. Yes, I fear for my safety. They can’t control the kids.”
Parents who show up at school to lead physical assaults on the teachers are not likely to help matters. Imagine what the kids are told at home.
If you think the situation is bad now, come back in a few decades, when liberals have achieved their dream of a white minority.

There hasn’t been much substance in Shrillary’s elaborately staged, tightly scripted Iowa campaign. But she did introduce one policy likely to resonate with her supporters: the suppression of free speech. This proposal by Shrillary is more alarming than the rhetoric coming out of the Islamic State:
“We need to fix our dysfunctional political system and get unaccountable money out of it once and for all—even if that takes a constitutional amendment.”
Shrillary is of course the world champion at acquiring unaccountable money. That’s why she arrogantly destroyed her subpoenaed Secretary of State emails; confirmation that she used her position to sell influence to foreign governments could finally put her where she has long belonged: in prison.
Her proposition refers to the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision, which upheld the right of nonprofit organizations (since expanded to corporations and unions) to engage in political speech as if this were still America. For example, a publishing company has the right to publish a book even if it criticizes liberals. The case was initiated by a movie critical of Shrillary that Democrats wanted suppressed (Hillary: The Movie).
What she is talking about is a formal repeal of the First Amendment.
On the surface, Shrillary’s candidacy is a joke, due to her glaringly obvious unsuitability for any position of responsibility. Beneath the joke waits a nightmare of corruption and tyranny.
But coming out against freedom of speech might perk up Democrats, who are so fundamentally opposed to the concept that a majority were found to be in favor of criminalizing “hate speech,” a vague term that generally means any speech that liberals hate.

Shrillary on any ticket is scary enough. But what New Republic moonbats would like to inflict is downright terrifying. As if he hasn’t already done enough damage, they actually want Barack Hussein Obama to run as her VP:
As a purely textual matter, the Constitution merely prohibits Obama from being elected to a third term. It doesn’t necessarily prohibit him from actually being president again, should Hillary Clinton no longer be able to serve.
Shrillary better get a food taster, unless that is already among Huma’s duties. Sounds like her fellow libs want to elect her and then off her.
If the idea of a Shrillary/Obama ticket made your hair stand on end, this will scare a stain into your shorts:
In an appearance on “Now With Alex Wagner,” guest Dorian Warren suggested that First Lady Michelle Obama, instead of Elizabeth Warren and a cadre of others, should challenge former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016.
If being black and being female are the only qualifications recent Democrat candidates have to offer, the Bitter Half is ideal. But why not unite the party by putting her on the ticket with Shrillary? After all, Shrillary has waited in line and it is now her turn.

As we have learned repeatedly over the past several decades, there is absolutely nothing to like or respect about Hillary Clinton — unless you are a member of the liberal media, some of whom behave in her imperial presence like star-struck teenage hippies at a Beatles concert:
You would think Shrillary had arrived to hand out answers to urgent questions regarding Benghazi, influence peddling, her illicitly destroyed Secretary of State emails, et cetera. But the MSM myrmidons surely knew better.

Liberals haven’t been able to ban all-purpose sporting rifles (or “assault rifles” as authoritarians call them), so they went after AR-15 ammo. But they encountered enough resistance that they had to back down for now. In the meantime, they are trying another tack: buying up the ammo with our money:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) intends to solicit offers to Request for Proposal (RFP) HSBP1015R0025 for .223 Remington (.223 Rem) Caliber Training Ammunition for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) locations nationwide, including those in the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, the Northern Marianna Islands, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands. …
Estimated quantity is approximately 12,600,000 (12.6 million) rounds of .223 Rem training ammunition per year, totaling 62,500,000 (62.5 million) over the life of the contract.
If the government buys up enough, .223 will be as hard to find as .22LR has been for the past few years.

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. Although reminders aren’t needed there, here is how the day is acknowledged in Israel:
At 10 a.m. on Thursday morning, Israel came to a standstill as sirens blared throughout the country to commemorate the 6 million Jewish victims of the Nazi regime. During the two minute siren, traffic came to a standstill and people stopped working to remember the Holocaust.
In contrast, Europe appears to have forgotten:
Chief Rabbi Benjamin Jacobs who sports a long beard and kippah laments, “Forty years ago when I came to Holland it never ever happened that someone would call me in the street a dirty Jew or curse me because I am visibly Jewish”; now it is a regular occurrence. Just down the street from Anne Frank House many young Muslim students refuse to sit through lessons about the Shoah, they mock Anne Frank and even spout on national TV—“Hitler should have finished the job!”
Last summer, the streets of Berlin and Frankfurt echoed those sentiments at pro-Hamas rallies with chants of “Hitler was right” and “All Jews to the Gas.” Despite the strongest anti-hate laws in Europe, German authorities took no action.
Of course not. Hate laws are only used against people the authorities hate. The liberals who have been importing them in massive numbers and paying them lavishly to reproduce as quickly as possible certainly don’t hate the current bearers of the Nazi torch, Moslems.
This Yom Hashoah, Jews cry not only over past martyrdom but also to mourn the growing number of European Jews killed by Islamist terrorists: A rabbi and 8-year old girl executed on a Jewish school playground; a volunteer guard gunned down at the entrance to a Copenhagen synagogue where a Bat Mitzvah celebration was taking place; four Jewish shoppers slaughtered at a kosher supermarket in Paris; and four people killed outside the Jewish Museum in Brussels.
Not much to complain about, when you consider that Obama has been bending over backward to come to an agreement that will effectively place the US stamp of approval on the acquisition of nuclear weapons by an Islamic terror state sworn to Israel’s destruction. When the next holocaust comes, it won’t be a matter of goons wrapped in kaffiyehs gunning down schoolchildren. It will look like this:

As a progressive, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is sure to approve of ever more crippling taxes on the middle class (or as liberal oligarchs call us struggling tax slaves, “the rich”), intended not only to plunder the bourgeoisie but to grind it out of existence in accordance with Marxist–Leninist ideology. As a wealthy progressive, she doesn’t like paying taxes herself:
According to the IRS, although she likely makes a substantial living anchoring a weekend MSNBC show and as a professor at Wake Forest University, the left-wing Melissa Harris-Perry does not pay her taxes. The Internal Revenue Service just placed a $70,000 tax lien against Harris-Perry.
She is the second left-wing MSNBC anchor caught not paying her fair share. Al Sharpton reportedly owes Uncle Sam upwards of $3 million.
Unfortunately for her, she doesn’t have Sharpton’s pull in Washington.
According to Harris-Perry, a left-wing activist who frequently rails against the wealthy for not paying enough taxes, the tax bill is from 2013…
Harris-Perry blamed the unpaid tax bill on a series of personal crises.
I imagine Hairball-Perry’s entire existence is a personal crisis, mostly stemming from being elevated to positions she is not within 30 IQ points of being qualified to fill. But she has the right pigmentation; that’s the important thing.
You would think with all the savings from not paying taxes, she would be able to afford nicer earrings:
