Kerry Mocks Israel’s Self-Defense

Watch and laugh as rectangular-faced plastic surgery disaster Hanoi John Kerry scrambles to explain a hot mic incident in which he sarcastically characterized Israel’s response to prolonged Hamas rocket attacks as “a hell of a pinpoint operation”:

Not good enough, Hanoi John. By now we all know where your sympathies and those of the rest of the Obama Administration lie. Israel is funded by US taxpayers out of political necessity. Hamas is funded by US taxpayers out of liberal ideology.

In contrast, the Egyptian government opposes Hamas. This is because the Egyptian people rose up and deposed the Obama-backed Muslim Brotherhood — the same group that gave birth to Hamas.

If Obama had had his way in Egypt, and the Muslim Brotherhood had prevailed, there is no chance that this key country would be standing by Israel against Hamas.

A Supermarket From Our Big Government Future

If the recent attention the Obama Regime has been paying to supermarkets doesn’t alarm you, you never went grocery shopping in the Soviet Union:

Compare this to any American supermarket and it becomes obvious why the cancer currently personified by Obama must be stopped before it does to the food supply what it is already beginning to do to healthcare.

More Violent Gang Members Turn Up Among Illegal Alien Children

Katie Pavlich brings us further details on the backgrounds of the angelic children our government is importing from Central American hellholes and distributing to neighborhoods throughout the country:

In an interview with Border Patrol agents, 15-year-old self admitted MS-13 member with the last name Aguilar said he killed a member of rival gang 18th Street six months ago with a fully automatic Uzi before coming to the United States.

“He claims he walked over to the wounded rival, and emptied the magazine into the rival’s body,” interview documents show. …

Another MS-13 member with the last name Garcia admitted to receiving a phone call while in the processing center from El Salvador with orders to carry out a murder on a rival gang member.

MS-13 doesn’t cause all the mayhem. The 18th Street gang is also heavily represented at Nogales:

One young minor with the last name Gonzales admitted to killing a rival gang member two years ago after receiving orders to do so from inside an El Salvador prison. Another with the last name Vasquez, who said his final destination in Maryland to reunite with his father living in the U.S. illegally, admitted to scouting and planning hits on rival gang members before entering the U.S. and said his brother, who is also an 18th Street member, coached him about how to cross the southern border into the U.S. He paid a Mexican soldier 200 pesos at a checkpoint in order to get through Mexico from El Salvador.

Americans are still children at age 26, at least according to ObamaCare. But kids grow up faster in the land of our colonizers.

By U.S. legal standards many gang members operating in Central American countries and traveling north are classified as minors due to being under the age of 18. However, many young males are actively engaged in violent cartel and criminal activity, yet are treated as children when processed through the Department of Health and Human Services or Department of Homeland Security systems.

What will become of the young sociopaths mentioned above?

According to sources inside the processing center, these unaccompanied MS-13 and 18th Street minors are being held for placement inside the United States.

Too bad the demographic shift that is being engineered will eventually give liberals the political leverage to repeal the Second Amendment. We are going to be needing guns to protect ourselves more than ever.

Californians Fined for Watering Lawns and for Not Watering Lawns

Progressivism will never stop progressing. Say they manage to achieve the ideal of every conceivable human action being either mandatory or forbidden. Then will progressives stop their termite-like encroachments? By no means. The next step will be to make every conceivable human action both mandatory and forbidden. Once again, California blazes the trail to our future:

Michael Korte and Laura Whitney, who live near Los Angeles in Glendora, said on Thursday they received a letter from the city warning they had 60 days to green up their partially brown lawn or pay a fine ranging from $100 to $500. …

The letter, bearing the official symbols of Glendora and its police department, came the same week that statewide water regulators passed emergency drought restrictions for outdoor water use. Those regulations, to take effect this August, require cities to demand cutbacks in water use, and empower them to fine residents up to $500 for overwatering their lawns.

The Southwest has always been arid; why the drought emergency? Here’s why:

[A] Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling … upheld federal guidelines limiting water deliveries from the northern part of the state to the southern part of the state — to protect an endangered fish called the Delta smelt.

Create a problem, then exploit it to curtail people’s liberties and confiscate their money. The formula works every time in demographically transformed single-party California.

A delta smelt: why Californians don’t have water.

Business Booms Thanks to “Guns Are Welcome” Sign

Not all businesses are run by left-wing fools who ask to be robbed:

As establishments like Starbucks and Jack-in-the-Box ask customers to not bring guns into the businesses, one restaurant owner in East Tennessee realized the obvious. An increased number of armed robberies were happening at businesses that openly made the plea for law-abiding citizens to leave their weapons at home. So, she decided to take a different approach. She posted a sign recognizing the constitutional right to bear arms and openly embracing the right to bear arms.

Sharma Floyd owns Shiloh Brew and Chew in East Tennessee. She believes that it is okay to carry a gun as long as you have a permit. So, she let that be known to her patrons with the following sign.

Guns-are-Welcome

No punks are likely to hold up Shiloh Brew and Chew.

Sharma Floyd doesn’t serve alcohol to customers who carry. The local media admits that the response has been overwhelmingly positive:

Muslims and Moonbats Rally in San Francisco Against Israel’s Right of Self-Defense

Hamas rockets raining down on the civilian population finally provoked a reaction from Israel. The Muslim–moonbat alliance’s response is reported with fawning approval by the San Francisco Comical:

Chanting “Free Palestine” and accusing Israel of genocide, a large, diverse crowd of Arab Americans and antiwar demonstrators marched in San Francisco late Sunday afternoon to protest the ongoing military action in Gaza and the escalating ground offensive by Israeli troops.

At one point, the protesters sat down in the middle of Market Street at Fourth Street and read the names of victims of the nearly 2-week-old conflict, including their ages and the circumstances of their deaths.

Photos of the event are compliments of Pork Soda:

SF-pro-Hamas-rally

If only we could end US aid to Hamas, the bloodthirsty terror outfit that started the carnage with its marathon civilian-targeted rocket barrage.

The world “apartheid” in the banner above is key. South Africa was a lonely outpost of Western Civilization in Africa. The anti-Western Left used opposition to apartheid to destroy it, so that now South Africa is a dying socialist country tailspinning toward Zimbabwe status as the last white people run for their lives. Israel is a lonely outpost of Western Civilization in the Middle East. The anti-Western Left is hoping the same strategy works again.

SF-pro-Hamas-rally

If ANSWERcoalition.org looks familiar, you could be thinking of all the anti-war rallies staged by this group right up until Obama took power and became responsible for the wars. With leftists, to use their own words, “the issue is never the issue.” For ANSWER, the issue is not war; it is Marxism. It is an openly Stalinist organization.

SF-pro-Hamas-rally

Who is this Revcom.us? What a coincidence: more commies. Its website bills itself as “The voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.”

Maybe they are just naive fools who don’t realize that Palestine = Hamas in the context of the current conflict. If so, they must protest with their eyes closed:

SF-pro-Hamas-rally

Communist governments killed over 100 million of their own people in the course of the 20th century. You can’t expect communists to be squeamish about the hundreds of innocents killed by Hamas terrorists.

Raw evil will always find noisy support in San Francisco, thanks to the area’s infestation with progressives.

USDA Unveils New Plans to Control How We Shop

Even before they finish consolidating control of the healthcare industry, our nanny state overlords are taking the next logical step by moving in on food. First they got a large percentage of the population dependent on government funding to buy groceries through the food stamp program. Now they are using that leverage to tell us what to eat. If Hollyweird ever wants to make a comedic sequel to 1984 ridiculing soft tyranny, it could get some excellent ideas from the USDA:

The agency commissioned an “expert panel” to make recommendations on how to guide the more than 47 million Americans on food stamps into spending their benefits on fruits and vegetables. …

[One] idea included a point-based system where food stamp recipients could receive movie tickets in exchange for healthy food purchases. Grocery store staff could also be used as “ambassadors” for the USDA’s agenda.

“In this role, floor staff has the ability to re-direct consumer purchase towards more healthful choices by explaining the incentive or the nutrition labeling system,” the report said.

It is unclear whether supermarkets will be compelled to hire people to tell you what the government wants you to eat, in which case they would pass along the cost via higher food prices, or whether these shopping advisors will be financed directly by the taxpayer.

The panel came up with six preferred strategies: discount coupons for SNAP recipients; rebates of up to $60 for healthy purchases on EBT cards; buy one get one free deals for SNAP recipients; a targeted marketing plan to promote healthy food; a USDA loyalty card; and new specialized shopping carts.

That is, the government will mandate that moochers get discounts on food they aren’t even paying for. All costs will be picked up by those of us old-fashioned enough to pull our own weight.

The idea of simply not allowing people to buy junk food with EBT cards was evidently too radical to entertain.

Regarding the specialized shopping carts,

The “MyCart grocery cart” would provide dividers for shoppers to make sure they are selecting enough items in each “MyPlate” category, the USDA’s food icon.

“MyCart is a nonfinancial approach that would use behavioral economics to encourage healthier purchases by any consumer, including SNAP participants,” the report said.

The cart would be color-coded, physically divided, and have a system installed so that when the shopping cart reaches its healthy “threshold” it would congratulate the customer.

As for the cost,

The report estimated that implementing the new carts would cost roughly $30,000 for every store. The change would be costly. For instance, Safeway, Inc. would need to spend $40.05 million to introduce the carts at its 1,335 stores in the U.S.

No worries; greedy capitalists have plenty of money.

They had better. Just coming up with these moronic suggestions cost the government $999,891. Since government only consumes and does not produce, the money has to come from somewhere.

Other strategies include compelling supermarkets to allocate certain amounts of shelf space to certain foods, to present foods the government wants us to eat more prominently, to create “healthy aisles,” et cetera.

Even the stocking of supermarket shelves is to be based on political considerations rather than what makes sense economically. No doubt special staff will be required to sort out all the federal recommendations.

When these recommendations fail to achieve gastronomic utopia, they will inevitably be replaced by dictates. Our continued failure to live up to the ideals of our rulers will eventually force the government to nationalize all food distribution, replacing the current supermarket cornucopias with the barren shelves of the Soviet Union.

But admittedly the Soviet Union didn’t have talking shopping carts.

Elizabeth Warren’s Eleven Tenets of Moonbattery

At first she was good for a laugh: a clueless limousine leftist who used Affirmative Action to establish herself at Harvard by pretending to be part Indian. Expressing a seemingly deliberate parody of far left ideology mainly in hysterical shrieks, she was more like a comedy act than a legitimate political candidate. But then she was elected Senator.

That’s okay, we thought. It’s only Taxachusetts, the ultra-liberal wacko-land infamous for electing and repeatedly reelecting profoundly detestable characters like Gerry Studds, Barney Frank, Ted Kennedy, Hanoi John Kerry, et cetera.

But now that she wants to be president, it’s time to stop laughing. Liberals are ready to bail on Shrillary. The Historic First Black President has been an unmitigated disaster, so now they will push the Historic First Female President. If it isn’t going to be Shrillary, it will be Elizabeth Warren.

As Mitt Romney found out the hard way, we have reached the point in the Democrat Death Spiral where it doesn’t matter how unqualified or even demonstrably incompetent a candidate Democrats run. Anyone capable of reading the following off a Teleprompter is likely to win:

“I will confiscate the wealth other people create and give some of it to you.”

But Elizabeth Warren brings even more to the table. Evidently inspired by the 25 Points of the Nazi Party, her Eleven Tenets of Progressivism will terrify anyone who cherishes the hope that America might recover from Obamunism.

The complete list, with annotation:

1. “We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we’re willing to fight for it.”

Warren regards herself as the Mother of Occupy Wall Street. Yet she backs a corporate welfare bank. Basically “stronger rules and tougher enforcement” means doubling down on the crony capitalism that has characterized the Obama regime. Investors will not be able to twitch a finger without federal permission. On the upside, they won’t be able to lose money, because they will be subsidized to the hilt and bailed out if anything goes wrong. Investments will be made on a political basis. Winners and losers will be chosen by Elizabeth Warren. The long-term consequences of replacing a free market economy with a command and control centralized economy are obvious to any student of Soviet history.

2. “We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth.”

By science, she means Lysenkoism (i.e., lunacy imposed as science for political reasons), as the second clause makes obvious. The tyrannical EPA will continue to run amok under Warren, destroying whole industries for ideological reasons and throwing people off their own property on a whim.

3. “We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality.”

That means the federal government running the Internet. Do you like PBS? Would you like to see it on every channel? Fine, then you won’t mind an Internet run by people like Warren.

4. “We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage.”

Raising the minimum wage not only correspondingly raises unemployment by lifting the cost of labor above the market price, but increases long-term government dependency by making it impossible to reach the first rung on the ladder to economic success. Raising the minimum wage is an act of economic malice intended to force more people onto welfare.

5. “We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them.”

Hamburgers will be sold by vending machines under President Warren; otherwise it will not be economically feasible to sell them at all.

6. “We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt.”

The extravagantly expensive farce higher education has already degenerated into will only get worse. Not ready for the real world? No worries. Just spend 20 years working on your PhD in Queer Studies and stick taxpayers with the tab.

7. “We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions.”

To ensure that everyone gets a pension, the federal government will confiscate your 401K.

8. “We believe—I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work.”

Enforcing “equal pay for equal work” will entail all wages being dictated by Washington, on the basis not of merit but of political correctness.

9. “We believe that equal means equal, and that’s true in marriage, it’s true in the workplace, it’s true in all of America.”

To ensure that perverted sexual liaisons are regarded as “equal” to holy matrimony, homosexuals will be granted ever more protections and privileges, so that hiring them will be mandatory and firing them forbidden.

10. “We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform.”

What “reform” means coming from Warren is amnesty. Combined with extravagantly lavish welfare benefits and a wide open board, it means the total eradication of the American people, who will be washed away by a tsunami of Third World parasites. This process is already underway under Obama.

11. “And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!”

It is not enough that companies are compelled to provide birth control. They must be compelled to provide abortion, even if it is a profound violation of their religious beliefs. The objective is to eradicate morality in general and Christianity in particular.

Nothing could be more disgusting than to be ruled by vermin like Elizabeth Warren. But at this point it is impossible to deny that nearly all Democrats would vote for her against any Republican — and more Democrats are pouring over the open border by the millions.

The worst president conceivable is nonetheless electable.

MSNBC Caller Sheds New Light on Malaysian Airlines Flight Shot Down Over Ukraine

If you ever find yourself with absolutely nothing else to do, watch MSNBC’s The Cycle, featuring a conspicuously slow-witted woman who calls herself Krystal Ball. You will get a whole new perspective on the news — if not from the Krystal, then from her callers:

Ms. Ball has distinguished herself in the past by proclaiming that George Orwell’s Animal Farm, which decries the tyranny of socialism, is actually anti-capitalist, and by coaxing her own daughter to publicly endorse homosexuality at about age 5.

Incredibly, Krystal ran for Congress as a Democrat in 2010 and managed to lose. She ought to try again. The country is ready for her now, the last barriers to grotesquely inappropriate candidates having been swept away by Obama’s reelection.

Stealing Our Country

Since we won’t get any straight talk regarding the ongoing invasion from the establishment media, let’s turn to American Renaissance:

The problem isn’t Hispanics; it’s Hispanics who see themselves as Hispanics rather than as Americans. But liberals are doing everything possible to prevent their assimilation, which in any case is impossible considering the numbers coming across the border.

Whatever their age, they are not immigrants. They are conquerors taking our county away with the assistance of our quisling rulers.

A note on the “poor deluded white woman who has no idea what’s going on” at 6:23. She knows exactly what’s going on. She is my left-wing congressional representative, Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ). What’s going on is that a new demographic is being created so as to keep people like her in power.

Climate Hustle

This looks promising:

An upcoming documentary aims to debunk global warming.

The documentary is called “Climate Hustle” and comes from the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a non-profit public policy group and parent organization of Climate Depot.

Due out this fall, the movie will profile numerous scientists who have shown enough integrity to abandon the global warming hoax, despite the strong incentives for playing ball with the liberal establishment, and even stronger disincentives for failing to conform.

Here’s the trailer:

Of course, global warming has been debunked before. The Great Global Warming Swindle tore the hoax to shreds years ago:

But as George Orwell says,

“We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.”

Not that Climate Hustle will necessarily consist of restatements. Plenty more scientists have jumped ship over the past few years, for good reasons that will be interesting to hear.
