Following the execution of two New York Police Department officers, a Brandeis University student leader wasted no time in making it clear that she did not care that they were murdered.
“i have no sympathy for the nypd officers who were murdered today,” Khadijah Lynch, a junior and an Undergraduate Department Representative in the African and Afro-American Studies Department, wrote on Twitter.

lmao, all i just really dont have sympathy for the cops who were shot. i hate this racist f***ing country.

Khadijah has also announced “I am in riot mode. F*** this f***ing country,” that “the fact that black people have not burned this country down is beyond me,” and that “amerikkka needs an intifada.”
She is not just another sociopathic moron allowed to enroll in a prestigious university in order to fulfill Affirmative Action quotas, but a designated representative of the liberal establishment:
“She’s a UDR, which means she’s a leader on campus responsible for advising younger students,” a recent Brandeis graduate told TruthRevolt.
Presumably her views are in tune with the agenda of the moonbat educrats running Brandeis.

The politically motivated assassinations of NYC police officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos didn’t come out of the blue. The Age of Hope & Change has been characterized by a mentality of resentment, entitlement, and lawlessness that makes this a dangerous time to represent law and order. Colin Flaherty published this video on Wednesday (LANGUAGE ALERT):

Congratulations to Barack Hussein Obama, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, Bill De Blasio, and most of all the media that put and keeps them in positions of power. Hats off to every glassy-eyed liberal foot soldier who has dutifully chanted, “Hands up don’t shoot,” “I can’t breathe,” or “What do we want? Dead Cops!” Their agitating has produced the results they were after:
Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
“It’s an execution,” one law-enforcement source said of the 3 p.m. shooting of police officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos.
An Asian and a Hispanic. That will sure stick to those evil white racist police the media keeps telling us about.
The tragic heroes were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant when they were shot point-blank in the head by the lone gunman, identified by sources as Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, who had addresses in Georgia and Brooklyn.
Lest anyone doubt the executions were motivated by moonbattery:
“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote on Instagram in a message posted just three hours before the officers were shot. …
He used the hashtag #ShootThePolice, along with two other hashtags referencing Garner and Brown.
There will always be violent lowlifes running loose. Brinsley is thankfully dead, having taken the coward’s way out. But to put all the blame on him would be almost as foolish as the inevitable liberal response of blaming the gun he used. Like the gun, Brinsley was just a tool. New York City police get it:
“We’re all in this together,” the mayor told grieving cops, according to a cop who was there.
“No we’re not,” one officer said tersely in response.
Just last week cops began signing a “Don’t Insult My Sacrifice” waiver, distributed by the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, that warned the mayor and speaker [moonbat Melissa Mark-Viverito, Speaker of the New York City Council, founding cochair of the council’s Progressive Caucus] to stay away from funerals of cops killed in the line of duty.
The likes of De Blasio will pretend that this wasn’t the result they were after when they pointedly sided with feral mobs against the police, as if anyone could be stupid enough to expect a bloodless outcome yet smart enough to acquire so much power. Not even the rap performers who help whip up the mobs are that simple — although they are dumb enough to admit to their true feelings:

“The Game” (a.k.a. Jayceon Terrell Taylor) is a typical rapper. The rap community has assisted the media and liberal politicians like De Blasio and Obama in whipping up feral mobs and certifying their grievances until the actual murder of police officers became inevitable.
Why would the progressive masterminds behind the whole Michael Brown/Eric Garner spectacle want cops murdered, other than out of sheer malice? Because it makes people angry and afraid, and will probably lead to more violence, thereby helping to destabilize society. Obama would not be in power if radical leftists didn’t think the time is ripe to push America over the brink into some hellish dystopia of progressives’ dreams and decent people’s nightmares.
But maybe Obama et al. are overplaying their hand. Maybe America hasn’t yet been rotted away by political correctness to the point that destabilization will work in their favor. Maybe a backlash against liberalism is coming that will send them scurrying back to whatever hell they crawled out of.
Via Mugshots.com, here’s the weapon they used to kill officers Liu and Ramos:
This is who the liberal ruling class that controls the federal government and the media sides with against police officers and against you. In return, fellows like Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley make useful tools.

If you have been to Amsterdam, you may wonder if there is any limit to Dutch permissiveness. The answer is yes. Opposition to the liberal agenda is strikt verboden — particularly regarding the displacement of the native population with imported Muslim welfare colonists.
Geert Wilders is be tried for inciting racial hatred after pledging in March to ensure there were ‘fewer Moroccans’ in the Netherlands, prosecutors said Thursday.
‘The public prosecutor in The Hague is to prosecute Geert Wilders on charges of insulting a group of people based on race and incitement to discrimination and hatred,’ prosecutors said in a statement.
‘Politicians may go far in their statements, that’s part of freedom of expression, but this freedom is limited by the prohibition of discrimination,’ it said, adding that no date had yet been set for the trial.
Wilders has been brought up on charges of political incorrectness before. This time the quislings running the Netherlands may actually imprison this prominent politician for objecting to the hostile invasion of his country. Not even Hitler had an easier time of taking over Holland, a nation that appears to have gotten tired of living.
Or maybe Europeans will rebel before it is too late.

Finally, something worth watching has appeared on MSNBC. Of the numberless arrogant lies Obama has sneeringly told to our faces in the course of the year, Glenn Kessler of WaPo has settled on the Lie of the Year:
Oh yes he did dismiss the Islamic State as a JV, just before it poured into the power vacuum he had created in Iraq by prematurely withdrawing our troops.
For all his practice, Obama belongs on the JV team for liars.
Susan Douglas, Chair of University of Michigan Department of Communication Studies, Unleashes Spittle-Spewing, Unhinged Denunciation of Republicans
Once again we see why Democrats are so eager to spend any amount of money we don’t have so that everyone can attend college regardless of whether they can afford it or have a real use for it:
A University of Michigan department chairwoman has published an article titled, “It’s Okay To Hate Republicans,” which will probably make all of her conservative students feel really comfortable and totally certain that they’re being graded fairly.
“I hate Republicans,” communications department chairwoman and professor Susan J. Douglas boldly declares in the opening of the piece. “I can’t stand the thought of having to spend the next two years watching Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Ted Cruz, Darrell Issa or any of the legions of other blowhards denying climate change, thwarting immigration reform or championing fetal ‘personhood.’”
Don’t try too hard to grasp the mentality of someone who finds even Obama collaborators Mitch McConnell and John Boehner to be insufficiently liberal. You might go insane.
Some might call the nutty professor biased. However, she assures us that her shrill views are the objective truth because they are based on “history and psychological research.”
Hilariously, she spits that Republicans are vile because of their “determined vilification” of others. Tearing at her stringy hair, she shrieks that they have no legitimacy because they have “crafted a political identity that rests on a complete repudiation of the idea that the opposing party and its followers have any legitimacy.”
The headline “It’s Okay to Hate Republicans” is pretty blunt for an academic. Normally they are more nuanced in their demagogic screeds; that is, they disguise their ire and malevolent radicalism under a layer of pretentious B.S. The explanation:
A magazine that published a column by a University of Michigan professor titled “It’s Okay to Hate Republicans” said late Thursday that it had crafted that headline without her knowledge and had swapped it for the original one, “We Can’t All Just Get Along.”
They changed it back, in order to be more subtle.

If you are trying to run a business, you obviously need to have a say in how representatives of that business present themselves to the public. But you do not have this right in the Dictatorship of the Depraved:
Attorney General Eric Holder has issued an edict, through a memorandum, that cross dressing and transsexualism [are] now protected under federal civil rights laws which were designed to protect women from sex discrimination. Existing federal law provides no statutory support for treating cross-dressers and transsexuals as the law treats female victims of discrimination.
This means that the Justice Department could now, for example, consider the decision by a school or church to not hire a transvestite as a violation of federal law.
Punishment for those who violate the edict is likely to be severe, considering what Holder’s Injustice Department did to a high school that wouldn’t let a boy show up for class in a miniskirt, pink wig, and stiletto heels:
The school district was forced to pay the transvestite-child $50,000, pay for counseling services with a psychiatrist specializing in “gay, bisexual and transgender youth issues,” hire an expert to review the school’s “gender expression” programs, and hire a second expert to conduct annual training on “gender identity and gender expression” discrimination.
If you plan to put up resistance to the latest insane decree, your business had better have deep pockets; Holder’s resources are as infinite as the federal government’s willingness to run up the national debt. Explicitly Christian businesses will inevitably be targeted by homosexual activists, an alarming practice that Arizona legislators tried and tragically failed to prevent.
At least by now it should be clear to everyone why the fundamental right of freedom of association must be reestablished, and all “civil rights” tyranny that represses it rejected, if we are ever again to refer to this with a straight face as a free country.

America has always been the Land of Opportunity. It used to be that all you had to do to get ahead in this country was work hard and keep your nose clean. Now things are even easier. Just give money to the Democrat Party. Another improvement: you don’t even have to be American.
The Obama administration overturned a ban preventing a wealthy, politically connected Ecuadorean woman from entering the United States after her family gave tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic campaigns, according to finance records and government officials.
The woman, Estefanía Isaías, had been barred from coming to the United States after being caught fraudulently obtaining visas for her maids. But the ban was lifted at the request of the State Department under former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton so that Ms. Isaías could work for an Obama fund-raiser with close ties to the administration.
It was one of several favorable decisions the Obama administration made in recent years involving the Isaías family, which the government of Ecuador accuses of buying protection from Washington and living comfortably in Miami off the profits of a looted bank in Ecuador.
They say a fish rots from the head down. So it is no surprise that the moral decay that has been destroying our country would be most conspicuously in evidence in the White House and Senate.
The family, which has been investigated by federal law enforcement agencies on suspicion of money laundering and immigration fraud, has made hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions to American political campaigns in recent years. During that time, it has repeatedly received favorable treatment from the highest levels of the American government, including from New Jersey’s senior senator [who happens to be a pedophile] and the State Department.
The Obama administration has allowed the family’s patriarchs, Roberto and William Isaías, to remain in the United States, refusing to extradite them to Ecuador. The two brothers were sentenced in absentia in 2012 to eight years in prison, accused of running their bank into the ground and then presenting false balance sheets to profit from bailout funds. In a highly politicized case, Ecuador says the fraud cost the country $400 million.
With that kind of money flying around, it wasn’t long before a welcome mat was placed before Estefanía Isaías, despite her having committed immigration fraud.
American diplomats began enforcing the ban against Ms. Isaías, blocking her from coming to Miami for a job with a communications strategist who had raised up to $500,000 for President Obama.
What happened next illustrates the kind of access and influence available to people with vast amounts of money.
For more than a year, Senator Robert Menendez, a Democrat from New Jersey, and his staff engaged in a relentless effort to help Ms. Isaías, urging senior government officials, including Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, to waive the ban. The senator’s assistance came even though Ms. Isaías’s family — a major donor to him and other American politicians — does not live in his state.
The Obama administration then reversed its decision and gave Ms. Isaías the waiver she needed to come to the United States — after tens of thousands of dollars in donations from the family poured into Mr. Obama’s campaign coffers.
An email from Mr. Menendez’s office sharing the good news was dated May 15, 2012, one day after, campaign finance records show, Ms. Isaías’s mother gave $40,000 to the Obama Victory Fund, which provided donations to the president and other Democrats. …
In 2012, the Isaías family donated about $100,000 to the Obama Victory Fund. Campaign finance records show that their most generous donations came just before a request to the administration.
One more generous donation and Estefanía can be the US Ambassador to the country of her choice, like the otherwise conspicuously unqualified Noah Mamet (Argentina), Colleen Bradley Bell (Hungary), George Tsunis (Norway), et al. — or maybe even Director of Homeland Security.

It can’t be easy for insurance companies to avoid bankruptcy while trying to do business in a dictatorship of the depraved:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has told New York health insurance companies they must cover sex-change operations and other treatments considered to be “medically necessary” to attempt to change a man or woman’s sex.
The New York Times reports that Cuomo sent a letter to insurance companies indicating that the coverage for such treatments and surgeries stems from state law’s requirement that health insurers provide coverage for psychological disorders.
Cuomo has a reputation for fascistic heavy-handedness. But New York is not alone:
According to the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, New York is now the ninth state to require insurance coverage for sex-change treatments and surgery.
No doubt this will soon apply at a national level, forcing us all to pay more for insurance so that lunatics can have their private parts amputated.
Back before liberalism drove our society insane, it was not considered advisable to treat psychological disorders by chemically and surgically disfiguring the insane in support of their morbid delusions. In those days, the government mostly left businesses alone, and didn’t micromanage so as to impose their ideology on every facet of our lives.

Being taken for morons by promoters of the global warming hoax has not been enough to decisively turn people against environmentalists. Maybe going broke and/or shivering in the dark will do the job, even in moonbattery-addled New England:
The New York Times ran an interesting article a few days ago discussing the skyrocketing electricity prices residents of New England are being forced to pay even before the winter season begins.
The article identifies a resident of New Hampshire named John York who paid $376 to power his small printing business this past October. With no change in the amount of his work or his thermostat, his electricity bill climbed to $788 in November – an increase of 110 percent in just one month.
What the article reveals (perhaps unintentionally) are the likely consequences of heavy handed government policies and regulations that distort energy markets and threaten the supply of affordable and reliable energy for consumers.
New England is dependent on natural gas. There is plenty of it, but thanks to red tape there is not enough pipeline capacity to get it where it is needed.
[E]nvironmentalists have opposed any construction of new pipelines that would increase the region’s dependence on fossil fuels. Ironically, increasing the amount of electricity generated from natural gas is a significant component of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan and specifically EPA’s proposed Clean Power Plan (“Building Block 2”). This lack of adequate pipeline infrastructure needed to comply with EPA’s plan is a concern cited by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) in a recent report.
Too bad Big Government doesn’t spare us the Soviet-style plans and just get out of the way so that people can build pipelines to keep the heat and lights on.
Furthermore, despite claims that renewable sources are now cost-competitive with (or even cheaper than) coal and natural gas, The New York Times piece goes on to explain that the Massachusetts Legislature this past August failed to approve a coordinated regional strategy consisting of new pipelines because “in part…cheap energy would flood in the market and thwart attempts to advance wind and solar projects.” In other words, the legislature decided to keep electricity prices artificially high so that renewable projects could compete with coal and natural gas. Notably, an increased reliance on renewables for electricity generation is also a key component of the Clean Power Plan (“Building Block 3”).
