Mexico Warns Texas to Comply With Invasion

We had better drop the idea of putting an end to the birthright citizenship nonsense that combined with chain migration is allowing millions of unskilled peasants from Third World countries to climb aboard the welfare gravy train. Texas tried it, and got a stern warning from Mexico:

The Mexican government is warning that Texas’ denial of birth certificates for U.S. children born here to undocumented immigrants stands to imperil the relationship between Mexico and the Lone Star State.

The concern was raised in an amicus brief filed Monday evening to lend support to immigrants parents who sued Texas after being denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children, even after showing their “matrículas,” the ID cards issued by the Mexican Consulate to undocumented immigrants. …

The families who are suing say that Texas is violating the 14th amendment and that the state is superseding federal immigration laws.

They might not know how to speak English but they do know their “rights” in the country they have illegally invaded — including the misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment that leftists have used as a justification for displacing our population with one more conducive to socialist rule.

Texas ought to send them back across the border by catapult. That would restore the relationship between Texas and Mexico to one of mutual respect, rather than the current relationship based on Mexico’s cynical exploitation of American moonbattery.

Hunter Biden Framed for Conspiring to Philander by Fiendishly Clever Russian Agents

When Joe Biden’s son Hunter was found to have an “Affair Guarantee” level account with the sleazy adultery service Ashley Madison, I naturally assumed he had been framed by the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy. But no, turns out it was the Russkies:

Business executive Robert “Hunter” Biden, reportedly an adviser to his father’s political career, told Breitbart News Monday that he suspected his enemies of creating a fake Ashley Madison account for him in order to discredit him. The email address provided for “Robert Biden’s” account matched a personal email address once used by Biden, the vice president’s son confirmed. (EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden: Ashley Madison Account Created In My Name By America’s Enemies).

Biden thinks international agents, possibly Russian, who objected to his board membership with a Ukrainian gas company set up a fake account to discredit him. A source close to Biden told People Magazine after the first Breitbart story ran that the IP address for the account traces to Jacksonville, Florida.

But account information shows that the profile, which was confirmed by a credit card purchase in 2014, was used at the latitude/longitude point of 38.912682, -77.071704.

That latitude-longitude point just happens to exist on the Georgetown University campus, at an administrative building on Reservoir Road. And Hunter Biden just happened to be teaching there around the time the account was set up.

Joke Biden must be very proud of the way Hunter deftly avoids taking responsibility for his skeevy behavior by weaving a tale of foreign intrigue that will most likely satisfy the readers of People Magazine. He could have a future in Democrat politics.

Former Ivy League Professor: Vester Flanagan Shooting Spree Caused by “Love Deficit”

We were all made very much aware that Dylann Roof’s shooting spree was racially motivated. How to spin the murders committed by Vester Flanagan — who clearly stated for the record that his motive was to get revenge against whites — as anything different? For a propaganda job that difficult, an Ivy League intellect is required. CNN calls upon former Harvard and Princeton professor Cornel West:

“The problem is we live in a society where people don’t give or get enough love. They don’t give or get enough justice. They don’t give or get enough community. When you’re isolated and insulated, that rage bubbles up. …

“Justice is what love looks like in public. When you have a love deficit, you have a justice deficit. And the question becomes, how do you make things accountable? I‘m very much in favor of tight gun control.”

There you have it. The killings resulted from a “love deficit” that can be made right by denying us our constitutional rights, and placing us even more at the mercy of maniacs like Flanagan, who could have just as effectively done his killing with a knife or a car.

The professor also managed to drag in the concepts of “white privilege” and “homophobia” while justifying Flanagan’s “rage” and denying that the killer was mentally ill.

Jerry Seinfeld Family’s Lemonade Stand Shut Down After Informant Squeals

We’ve seen lemonade stands shut down by the authorities again and again and again and again, apparently lest kids grow up thinking they can generate their own wealth rather than feed off the government. But surely a big shot celebrity like Jerry Seinfeld could get away with a lemonade stand — or maybe not. His family’s lemonade stand, set up in East Hampton to raise money for his wife’s charity, was shut down after a neighbor ratted them out to the authorities.

“Lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor, but not before raising lots of money for @loverecycled,” wrote Ms. Seinfeld in the caption. “Thanks to all of our customers and big tippers!” …

East Hampton Village Police Chief Jerry Larsen said police received a complaint about illegally parked vehicles at the location of the lemonade stand. At the scene, an officer advised the Seinfeld family that village code does not permit lemonade stands on village property. …

Ms. Seinfeld founded Baby Buggy in 2001. The organization focuses on providing families under financial strain with clothing, gear and services, and has donated 16 million items since its formation. Its motto is “Love Recycled,” hence its Instagram handle.

However, the privileges of fame still protect celebrities from less serious infractions, such as Al Sharpton’s refusal to pay the $4.5 million he owes in taxes, and the various crimes including mishandling of top secret information and destruction of evidence entailed in Shrillary Clinton’s email shenanigans.

Walmart to Stop Selling AR-15s

Liberals don’t necessarily have to violate the Constitution to attack the fundamental rights it enshrines, because as the ruling class, they control not only the government, but also most major corporations. For example, when the flag representing the South was targeted for eradication lest it continue to serve as a rallying point for opposition to centralized control, there was no need for Obama to violate the First Amendment by whipping out his pen and his phone; major retailers like Walmart were alarmingly quick to pull the flag from their shelves and flush it down the Memory Hole on a voluntary basis. The same goes for the Second Amendment:

Walmart has instituted a new corporate policy that bars its stores from selling semi-automatic AR-15-style rifles and semi-automatic shotguns that have a magazine capacity of seven shots or more, multiple news outlets report.

According to Walmart spokesman Kory Lundberg, the massive retailer will replace ARs and self-defense and competition shotguns with budget-oriented bolt guns, rimfire rifles and pump-action shotguns.

Although AR-15s are the top-selling rifles in the country and intensely hated by liberals who ignorantly or mendaciously refer to them as “assault rifles,” the ban is supposedly only about business and not politics. We’ll know better when the bolt-action guns are replaced by slingshots, and then slingshots by water pistols, and then water pistols by peace symbol and smiley face buttons.

The people running big companies like Walmart aren’t necessarily moonbats themselves. But they readily bend to the will of moonbats, so they may as well be.

Walmart has been the target of anti-gun groups who are pushing the retail giant [to] ban some firearms sales. In December 2013, New York City-based Trinity Church sued to force a shareholder vote on whether “Walmart should sell products that are … especially dangerous to the public [and] pose a substantial risk to company reputation and would reasonably be considered offensive to the community and family values that Walmart seeks to associate with its brand,” including products with “high-capacity magazines.”

A Federal appeals judge tossed the Trinity Church lawsuit in April.

What makes lawsuits so effective is that even when they fail, they succeed by intimidating their victims.

Not all Walmart stores sell firearms; yet some manufacturers depend on Walmart for a substantial percentage of their profits.

Remington Outdoor Company said Walmart accounted for nearly 10 percent of its firearms and ammunition sales in the last six months, with AR-style rifles leading Remington’s push.

“In the event Walmart were to significantly reduce or terminate its purchases of firearms, ammunition and/or other products from us, our financial condition or results of operations could be adversely affected,” Remington Outdoor Company said.

No violation of the Constitution has taken place; Walmart can sell what it likes — just as we can shop where we like. But where are you going to shop when major retailers willing (and sometimes eager) to impose leftist ideology (Walmart, Target, Amazon, eBay, Sears, etc.) are crowding out everyone else? It’s like switching the channel on TV, only to see the same moonbattery wherever you turn.

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron

Pope Francis may be an eco-Marxist polar opposite of John Paul II, but at least Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron of Agana, Guam understands that moonbattery is the enemy of everything the Church should defend to its last breath. Here is how he feels about the imposition of homosexual marriage (bold in original):

These times compel the Church to expose the intentions of those who have deceivingly disguised same-sex unions, as an issue of equality and anti-discrimination. It is important to understand that the political pressure to push the agenda for same sex “marriage” has never been about gay rights; the true intention behind this agenda has always been about the destruction of the family, and the imposition of a totalitarian system. The approval of same-sex “marriage” has now thrown open the doors of Guam to implement in our community a very clever and systematic theory, which has as its aim the destruction of marriage and family through the annihilation of any sexual differences among persons, this theory is known as the “Theory of Gender.”

Sick as things are now, they will continue to get sicker as the progressive plan unfolds. Opposition will be denounced as “intolerant” and ruthlessly crushed.

The next step will be to implement this theory in the educational system of Guam [as with the rest of the USA]. This means that our children, your children, will be forced to assimilate to this pattern of non-gender; that there is no-such-thing as “male” or “female”; they will be encouraged to explore their sexuality earlier, and parents will have no voice in the education of their children. The natural family will be seen as a threat for the “new age.” These ideas are already part of an international agenda promoted especially by the United Nations. The laws just passed on our beautiful island, which were disguised to fight against discrimination, will now work to subvert our human sexuality from the most tender age with the goal to abolish the natural family and create new “models” of a family.

I truly believe we are being led astray like lambs to a slaughter. In my view, these recent laws are not a sign of human progress, but are dangerous steps toward annihilation of our fundamental religious beliefs.

The corruption of innocent children, the destruction of the most fundamental structure in society, and of course the repression or better still subversion of Christianity are all key items on the agenda. Only when the old society has been torn up by the roots can the impending dystopia be imposed. That is the purpose of cultural Marxism, the religion of our ruling class.

Another Gloomy Dose of Sunshine

Remember Sunshine, the activist who recently called for the death of all whites? She continues to spread her black supremacist gloom:

#F***YoFlag movement supporters allegedly told a veteran who infiltrated their publicly posted conference call, “We are going to rape and gut your pregnant wife, and your f***ing piece of sh*t unborn creature will be hung from a tree.”

The veteran, who wants only to be identified by his first name “Nicholas,” claimed that the threatening phone calls have been constant ever since he and some of his abettors infiltrated the F*** Yo Flag movement conference call.

Sunshine” is an organizer in the #FYF911 movement. There are several websites and Twitter handles for the movement.

#FYF911 “black radicals” say they will be holding the “imperial powers” that are actually responsible for the terrorist attacks on September 11th accountable on that day.

“Palmetto Star” describes himself as one of the head organizers. He said … that supporters will be burning their symbols of “the illusion of their superiority,” their “false white supremacy,” like the American flag, the British flag, police uniforms, and Ku Klux Klan hoods.

You didn’t think they were going to stop with Confederate flags, did you? Everything white is oppressive and has got to go.

Rep. Gwen Moore Doubles Down on Claim That Scott Walker Lynches Blacks

Toxic, inflammatory moonbattery is poured into the heads of people like Vester Flanagan not only by the cultural Marxists running the media, but also by members of the government — like congresscretin Gwen Moore (D-WI), who was asked to follow up on her recent claim that Scott Walker’s policies are “tightening the noose, literally, around African-Americans.” When presented with an opportunity to apologize for the cartoonish and grossly irresponsible assertion, she barked:

“I don’t see any reason to apologize to him (Walker). If anything, he should apologize, I think, for his deliberate efforts during his tenure as governor to increase the misery index among African-Americans.” …

Asked if she could do the conference call over, if she would use the word noose, Moore said:

“Well, I can tell you, I’m an African-American. And so there are images that come into my mind. And I can’t go back to that press conference at all. But I can tell you as an African-American, I have felt the oppression of Scott Walker. This whole voter ID thing, I’ve been fighting him on this since 1990.”

Voter ID requirements are oppressive because they could prevent blacks from voting more than once, in violation of the belief some hold that their vote should count for more. Those votes are used to impose rule by people like Gwen Moore.

Vester Flanagan’s Flag

We shouldn’t look at Vester Flanagan’s execution of two white former coworkers on live television strictly in terms of racial politics. There is another aspect:

The Daily Telegraph has learned that “police reportedly confiscated a gay pride flag” from the apartment of Vester Lee Flanagan Wednesday. In an apparent hate crime, Flanagan is the 41 year-old black journalist who murdered two white Virginia reporters on live television Wednesday morning before turning his gun on himself.

In a manifesto faxed to ABC News, Flanagan, an Obama-supporter, claimed that his motive involved a “race war.” Flanagan was black and gay and apparently angered by the [supposed] fact that he had been a victim of racism and homophobia at the hands of “black men and white women.”

Both of Flanagan’s intended victims were straight.

The gay pride rainbow flag reportedly found in Flanagan’s apartment is seen by many as a symbol of anti-Christian hate.

After a white racist terrorist in South Carolina murdered nine innocent black churchgoers, photos of the racist with the Confederate Flag resulted in a media frenzy to ban the flag.

Like the Confederate flag, the provocative gay pride flag, a symbol of religious oppression, has flown on government property.

Libs got the Confederate flag taken down in RINO-ruled South Carolina. They have imposed a de facto ban throughout the country through their control of major retailers like Walmart, Amazon, eBay, Sears, et cetera. The show The Dukes of Hazard has been taken off the air because it features the flag on the roof of a car. Displaying the flag now results in vigilante punishment in the form of vandalism or even violence.

If that’s what happened to the flag representing the South because Dylann Roof owned one, the same should happen to the flag representing homosexual sodomy, right? But I’m forgetting; like blacks, gays are oppressed, which means they are the ones with the whip hand.

During Drought, La-La Land Bureauweenies Waste Water on Constant Car Washes

It’s good to be king — or even just to be one of the moonbat bureauweenies who rule California. Even as long-suffering taxpayers are subjected to mandatory water restrictions, have their bathroom activities regulated by Governor Moonbeam, and are told to squeal on each other for excessive water use during the government-caused drought conditions, we read this:

The majority of the [Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors] wash their take-home cars two or three times a week, service records show, and actually washed them more frequently after Gov. Jerry Brown ordered a 25 percent cut in urban water use. …

Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas had his cars washed more frequently than any of the others, according to the documents obtained under the state public records law. In 2014, Ridley-Thomas had one of his Chrysler 300 Limited sedans washed an average of 2.7 times per week. After the mandate in April, workers washed it 3.1 times per week.

And that was only one of his two black luxury cars. For most of last year he drove a newer Chrysler that was washed an average of 2.9 times a week.

Two other supervisors — Michael Antonovich and Don Knabe — both wash their take-home SUVs about two times a week, and both increased the frequency of washes after Brown’s April mandate (he first declared a state of emergency in January 2014).

No wonder government officials love the concept of sacrifice. They aren’t the ones who have to make it.

Vester Flanagan, Social Justice Warrior

Pour toxic ideology into a defective mind and the results will not be pretty. A case in point is homicidal maniac Vester Flanagan (a.k.a. Bryce Williams), a person of politically preferred pigmentation and sexual orientation (i.e., a black homosexual) who had allowed himself through gullibility or mental weakness to be convinced that he was oppressed. This inspired him to murder two former coworkers on live television.

Breitbart earned vicious denunciations from liberals and their RINO collaborators by characterizing the story correctly from the beginning:

When Vester Lee Flanagan murdered a reporter (Alison Parker) and her cameraman (Adam Ward) on live television on Wednesday, Breitbart News provided its readers with live updates in a post with a headline that read, “RACE MURDER IN VIRGINIA: BLACK REPORTER SUSPECTED OF EXECUTING WHITE COLLEAGUES – ON LIVE TELEVISION!”

The headline, based in part on Tweets by Flanagan that revealed a racial motive, proved to be accurate.

But the mainstream press, left-wing writers, and the usual suspects on the right who love being liked by the liberals went apoplectic.

ABC News would later receive Flanagan’s manifesto/suicide note in which he declared that he wanted a “race war.”

Flanagan was so heavily into moonbattery, he wore an Obama badge while reporting on elections. In his puzzled mind, the senseless murders were retribution for Dylann Roof’s killing spree.

No one had a problem characterizing the Roof shootings as racially motivated. The liberal establishment immediately retaliated with a de facto ban on Confederate flags. But the progs in charge had a hard time believing that Flanagan could also be racially motivated, because according to the Narrative, whites always hurt blacks, who are always noble, saintly victims.

That same preposterous and pernicious Narrative resulted in the deaths of Alison Parker and Adam Ward.

The libs who constantly promote Blacks Are Oppressed malarkey know perfectly well that people who aren’t that bright will actually believe it. Low intelligence often goes hand in hand with low impulse control, particularly in the very sectors of society the media stirs up with its P.C. propaganda.

Not only pathetic psychopaths like Vester Flanagan want a race war; those driving the bogus Narrative appear to want one too — fully understanding like even Charles Manson did that the war would not be between whites and blacks but between whites who side with whites and whites who side with blacks. The former would be underdogs by a wide margin.

Meanwhile liberals are exploiting the killing their ideology caused by proclaiming that it proves we can’t be trusted with our inherent right of self-defense as guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

The “racist demagogues” were 100% correct, unlike Jonathan Chait.

Jeb Bush’s Education Policy Includes Free Tuition and Tuition Rebates

Jeb Bush’s appalling refusal to let Democrats outflank him on the left is not limited to opening the immigration floodgates even wider. Brace yourself for his education policy:

He thinks community college students should get “free” tuition for two years. If that’s sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the exact same thing President Barack Obama proposed in January. Which shows how completely hypocritical Bush is because he came out against Obama’s plan in January. Oh, but Bush’s plan gets even more #headdesk inducing. He wants universities to PAY BACK students who don’t graduate in four years.

Just what we need to flush ourselves the rest of the way down: more economic incentive to fail.

Presumably this would be paid for by revenues provided by what Bush calls the “economic driver” of importing millions more unskilled, uneducated, and largely welfare-dependent peasants from the Third World. If that doesn’t work we’re in trouble, because federal subsidization of college tuition has already been driving its cost through the stratosphere.

Again Bleb Bush wants to double down on Democrats’ irresponsible policies. If the GOP ever comes up with a worse candidate than John McCain, it will be Bleb.

Bums Bury San Francisco in Feces

Nothing could be more emblematic of the effect moonbattery has had on the once great city of San Francisco:

San Francisco’s streets are being transformed into one big toilet bowl and the city’s officials are responding by increasing the number of “poop patrols.”

“It’s getting worse, and people are tolerating it,” Joe D’Alessandro, who heads San Francisco Travel, told the San Francisco Chronicle. “People come here thinking of this as the center of innovation and entrepreneurship, and they see a street scene that looks like something out of a Third World country.”

That’s because San Francisco is also a center of moonbattery. The liberals running the city have laid out a red carpet for dysfunctional street people, who come from all over the country to collect their freebies and crap on the sidewalk. Combined with the policy of no longer incarcerating any but the most obviously violent lunatics, this has reduced the city to a cross between a mental institution and a sewer.

Defecating in public is treated as an infraction akin to a parking ticket. The Chronicle notes that these tickets are often ignored by those who receive them.

Big Government is taking action, unsurprisingly, by throwing money at the problem:

• Concentrating steam-cleaning crews in downtown S.F. These crews will respond to any cleanup calls within one hour between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
• Adding a third crew to the “hot spot” team which will to tackle unsanitary homeless encampments that have popped up everywhere from South of Market to the Civic Center.
• The addition of 18 new city workers to regularly clean 80 of the most neglected alleys which will cost nearly $3 million
• Expansion of the city’s mobile public toilet program which will keep the restrooms clean and safe.
• In September of last year, the budget for the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system received a boost to hire workers that would help clean the urine and feces in the Bay Area’s heavily trafficked train stations.

That is, taxpayers will effectively follow the deranged hobos around, cleaning up their poop for them like dutiful dog owners.
