TV Ads Are Laced With Toxic Moonbattery

Due to the mentality that prevails in the advertising industry, virtually every time we watch a television commercial, moonbattery is mainlined straight into our brains at the most dangerous time, when we are only half paying attention and therefore relax our intellectual defenses. One of countless examples is this iPad Air 2 campaign:

The bouncy pop music is by a band from an affluent suburb of Chicago called The Orwells. Here are the lyrics to the song Apple uses:

You better toss your bullets
You better hide your guns
You better help the children
Let ‘em have some fun
You better count your blessings
Kiss mom and pa
You better burn that flag
Cause it ain’t against the law

You better pledge your allegiance
You’re not the only one

Listen up forefathers
I’m not your son
You better save the country
You better pass the flask
You better join the army
I said: no thank you dear old uncle sam

Apple is one of the most successful corporations ever. From today’s Wall Street Journal:

Apple Inc. surpassed even the most bullish Wall Street expectations for its holiday quarter with an improbable trifecta: selling more iPhones at higher prices—and earning more on each sale.

The Cupertino, Calif., company said it sold 74.5 million iPhones in the quarter, 46% above a year earlier, while lifting the average selling price of the devices by $50 from the prior year. The total equates to more than 34,000 phones an hour, around the clock.

“Demand for iPhone was staggering,” Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook told analysts. “This volume is hard to comprehend.”

Results were remarkable, even for a company that has increased revenue more than tenfold in the past decade.

Capitalism has been very good to Apple. Yet this corporation convinces the young and foolish that they are trendily anti-corporate by associating their product with juvenile moonbattery of the sort incoherently barfed up by The Orwells.

If this sells the product, it makes sense. But others are left with the Herculean task of scrubbing all the moonbattery out of people’s minds.

Man Sues for Getting Arrested After Playing Violin Naked in Front of Courthouse

Tired of working for a living? Here’s a scheme to get rich quick I’ll bet you never thought of. It takes money to make money, so first invest in a violin. Then take off your clothes, and play naked outside a federal courthouse. From there all you need is a lawyer, and there is no shortage of those.

A Hillsboro, Oregon, man arrested after playing a violin while naked outside the federal courthouse in Portland last year is suing police.

The Oregonian reports that 25-year-old Matthew T. Mglej claims authorities used excessive force and violated his First Amendment rights. He named the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office and Portland Police Bureau as defendants in a lawsuit filed last week, and he’s seeking $1.1 million in damages.

Police showed up after receiving complaints about the demonstration, during which the man played violin, meditated and quoted former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. …

Mglej claims jail deputies cut his wrists by jerking on his handcuffs and called him names when he cried from the pain and for his service dog.

If Ahmadinejad is provided with a soapbox at Columbia University, why can’t Mr. Mglej play his violin naked? This obvious victim of oppression was kind to taxpayers in only demanding $1.1 million.

Officers question Mglej’s service dog.

Cubitat: 10-by-10-Foot Home

Rubbing elbows with other members of the global moonbat ruling class, Al Gore and Felipe Calderon recently hatched a plan to spend $90 trillion of other people’s money to force us to live more densely packed together so that we won’t need to offend the polar bears by driving cars. The Cubitat should fit their schemes nicely:

Those on a quest to rethink small-space living build tiny houses, install pop-up rentals on vacant lots, and design portable 10-square-foot microkitchens tucked inside armoires. Presented over the weekend at Toronto’s Interior Design Show, Cubitat is a 10-by-10-by-10-foot cube that houses a kitchen, bathroom, bed, laundry, and storage.

Presenting the Cubitat:

cubitat

Here’s a design project that might be even more suitable in the planned utopian world populated only by liberals:

habitrail

Or better still, this home comes complete with free government-provided healthcare:

prison cell

However, repeated experience during the 20th century indicates that utopian schemes are more likely to lead to even more space-efficient housing — in mass graves.

Obamunists Try to Take Out Netanyahu

There are a lot of bad guys in the Middle East. They mean us harm. There is only one good guy who serves as head of state: Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been doing everything in his power to defend civilization from savagery against terrifying odds. Naturally Obamunists are attempting to remove him from office:

A U.S. State Department-funded group is financing an Israeli campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and has hired former Obama aides to help with its grassroots organizing efforts.

U.S.-based activist group OneVoice International has partnered with V15, an “independent grassroots movement” in Israel that is actively opposing Netanyahu’s party in the upcoming elections, Ha’aretz reported on Monday. Former national field director for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign Jeremy Bird is also reportedly involved in the effort. …

OneVoice said in a press release on Tuesday that it is teaming up with V15 because Israel “need[s] a prime minister and a government who will be responsive to the people.”

By “the people,” they must mean the hordes of Muslim people surrounding Israel and eager to snuff out this ember of Western Civilization before moving on to Europe, no doubt with Mullah Obama’s continued blessings.

Meanwhile, Obama won’t even deign to meet with Netanyahu when he comes to Washington in March.

One blessed day Obama will be gone. But how will we ever be able to count on our allies not to knife us in the back, after Obama has proven that they cannot count on us?

Sharia Law in Texas

Despite the hundreds of thousands Obama has been importing at our expense from terrorist hot zones like Somalia and Syria, Muslims still comprise only a tiny minority of our population. Yet already they are setting up the infrastructure to extend their culture onto our land, rather than making any meaningful attempt at assimilation. Sharia law has even infiltrated Texas:

An Islamic Tribunal using Sharia law in Texas has been confirmed by Breitbart Texas. The tribunal is operating as a non-profit organization in Dallas.

Do they do arbitration? Not exactly:

Breitbart Texas spoke with one of the “judges,” Dr. Taher El-badawi. He said the tribunal operates under Sharia law as a form of “non-binding dispute resolution.” El-badawi said their organization is “a tribunal, not arbitration.” A tribunal is defined by Meriam-Webster’s Dictionary as “a court or forum of justice.” The four Islamic attorneys call themselves “judges” not “arbitrators.”

El-badawi said the tribunal follows Sharia law to resolve civil disputes in family and business matters.

What happens when there is a conflict between sharia law and Texas law? They go with sharia.

Participation is supposedly voluntary…

However, [El-badawi] would not discuss what happens to someone who did not follow their rulings.

Hopefully they aren’t stoning adulterers in Texas yet.

Antifracking Money Trail Leads to Russian Oil Industry

Enviromoonbats accuse opponents of the global warming hoax of being paid by the nefarious energy companies that enable our standard of living. If only. Meanwhile…

A shadowy Bermudan company that has funneled tens of millions of dollars to anti-fracking environmentalist groups in the United States is run by executives with deep ties to Russian oil interests and offshore money laundering schemes involving members of President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle.

One of those executives, Nicholas Hoskins, is a director at a hedge fund management firm that has invested heavily in Russian oil and gas. He is also senior counsel at the Bermudan law firm Wakefield Quin and the vice president of a London-based investment firm whose president until recently chaired the board of the state-owned Russian oil company Rosneft.

In addition to those roles, Hoskins is a director at a company called Klein Ltd. No one knows where that firm’s money comes from. …

The only publicly available documentation of any business conducted by Klein Ltd. were two Internal Revenue Service filings by the California-based Sea Change Foundation, which showed that Klein had contributed $23 million to the group in 2010 and 2011.

Shell games with dummy companies like Klein Ltd. are necessary to keep people from realizing where the money is coming from as it is channeled into the coffers of left-wing activist groups.

The Sierra Club, the Natural Resource Defense Council, Food and Water Watch, the League of Conservation Voters, and the Center for American Progress were among the recipients of Sea Change’s $100 million in grants in 2010 and 2011. …

The Sierra Club, which received nearly $8.5 million from Sea Change in 2010 and 2011, launched its “Beyond Natural Gas” campaign the following year. The effort has become one of the largest and best-funded environmentalist campaigns combating fracking and the extraction of natural gas in general.

Russians have employed this same devious strategy in Europe:

“I have met allies who can report that Russia, as part of their sophisticated information and disinformation operations, engaged actively with so-called non-governmental organizations—environmental organizations working against shale gas—to maintain European dependence on imported Russian gas,” Anders Fogh Rasmussen, formerly NATO’s secretary general, said last year.

Similarly reliant on high energy prices that are threatened by US production, Arabs play this game too. For example, a propaganda movie by the execrable Matt Damon attacking American oil and natural gas producers (Promised Land) was partially financed by the United Arab Emirates.

Don’t be too hard on the Russians and Arabs for trying to keep their profits up by keeping our production down. Even their greed is a cleaner motivation than the sheer moonbattery of Damon and the Sierra Club.

Sheriff Joe Takes Times Square

Hopefully New Yorkers are enjoying being towered over by a giant billboard featuring the Phoenix area’s intensely hated (by moonbats nationwide) Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

joe-arpaio-times-square

If not, at least they can feel consoled that the libs at the Arizona Repugnant feel their pain:

Never one to stand in the shadows when there’s limelight lingering about, Sheriff Joe Arpaio has figured out a way to welcome the world to Arizona.

By putting up a giant billboard in Times Square. Featuring, of course, himself.

Yep there he is, in all his glory on a 120-foot-by- 84-foot LED electronic billboard towering over Time Square in New York City.

The message: “Maricopa County’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio welcomes all to sunny Arizona for the big game. Enjoy our state, obey our laws and be safe!”

That’s right, visiting New Yorkers. Have fun but don’t forget to behave yourselves!

The comments section is spilling over like a backed up toilet with venom spewed by sputtering moonbats, out of their minds with enraged hatred for Sheriff Joe. There could be no greater tribute to this esteemed countermoonbat.

Transsexual Weirdo Rachel Levine Nominated to Be Pennsylvania Physician General

Meet the new nominee to be Pennsylvania’s Physician General:

rachel-levine

No, Tiny Tim did not come back from the dead with a bleach job. That’s actually a woman — or at least, the media expects us to regard him as a woman.

Dr. Rachel Levine has been nominated by Gov. Tom Wolf, the state’s newly sworn-in progressive governor.

Many doctors focus on a single objective — curing cancer, for example, or combating Alzheimer disease. As for Dr. Rachel, his emphasis is to “serve as a mentor and role model” for other perverts:

“I’ve been addressing that issue all my life. You don’t suddenly decide at 50-something that you’re transgender. Over the last 10 years, I’ve been investigating that and exploring that.”

Yet Levine appears to be as sexually perplexed as ever. Clearly more research is needed. Open your wallets, Pennsylvania taxpayers.

Governor Coyote I mean Governor Wolf says that Levine was chosen not because he shows up for work in women’s clothes, but in part because of his “extensive background” in “behavioral health.”

Had enough yet?

Expiration of Unemployment Benefits Drives Down Unemployment

The unemployment situation is improving. But you probably won’t learn the primary reason from the leftist “mainstream” media. Try The Examiner:

Sixty percent of job creation in 2014 was caused by the expiration of unemployment benefits, according to a new working paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

This happy outcome was the result of the sky falling on our heads — or at least, that’s how the MSM would depict it.

In late 2013, a standoff between Republicans and Democrats led to the abrupt expiration of long-term unemployment benefits. Democrats warned that the expiration would have disastrous ramifications, but Republicans had long argued that allowing Americans to collect unemployment benefits for an indefinite period of time provided a disincentive for them to work.

Pay people not to work and many of them will not work. Only an idiot or a liar would dispute this fact.

The new working paper found that the expiration of benefits was responsible for the creation of over 1.8 million jobs. Nearly 1 million of those jobs were created by workers who would have otherwise stayed out of the labor force if unemployment benefits had been extended. …

The authors found that employment grew fastest in states that had high unemployment benefits before benefit extensions expired. This suggests that high unemployment benefits had been holding back job creation in these states, causing them to catch up quickly once benefits fell closer to those in low-benefit states.

Think what a sudden end to liberal rule could mean to states like New York and California. The standard of living would skyrocket. But demographics won’t let it happen; liberals of both parties have seen to this through immigration policy.

The labor force participation rate remains low, in part because liberal social engineers can still rely on ever more prevalent disability fraud to keep dependency up and wealth creation down (see here, here, here, and here).

Islamization, PEGIDA, and the Lügenpresse

The Islamization of Europe has inspired a new movement similar to the Tea Party in its sanity and wholesomeness — and in that it is hated by the leftist establishment, resulting in demonization by the media. If you want to know what is going on in Europe, do not rely on what Germans call the Lügenpresse. Reporting from Leipzig, Breitbart reveals what the establishment doesn’t want you to know:

Wednesday night saw a flare of violence and an accompanying police operation on a scale without precedent in recent German history. A group opposing militant Islam in Europe has called a demonstration, the city is deafened by political slogans played over loudspeakers, property is vandalised, and explosives are thrown at police in colossal running battles that involve thousands of people.

Wow, sounds like those right-wingers are really going berserk. But keep reading.

If you got your news from the mainstream media, what is increasingly known in Germany as the ‘liar press’ (Luegenpresse), the story might very well end there. Then again, the report might also throw in salacious details about the former leader of this movement and his colourful past, or the tragic death of an immigrant man who was killed shortly after a demonstration in Dresden last week.

There is no doubt about what these reports are meant to leave you thinking. Germans actually taking pride in their country, and very soon after in the neighbourhood a young Eritrean is murdered with no apparent motive? Must be a racist attack. This has been a large part of the German establishment’s haughty dismissal of the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA) group: that they are cold, angry racists with hatred in their hearts.

The fact that many of the supporters appear to be middle class, grandparents, or young couples doesn’t matter. As one government minister remarked, they are merely “Pinstripe Nazis”. Nor does it matter that as was revealed on Wednesday, 20-year old Eritrean Khaled Idris Bahray was actually killed by his flat mate, rather than a roving band of politically engaged Germans protesting against government policy.

Liberal establishment publications like The Guardian were making a big deal about Bahray’s killing. However…

Despite the fact police have now recovered the murder weapon, that Khaled’s former flat-mate, a fellow Eritrean has confessed to the crime, and “significant” amounts of drugs are said to be involved, the story has been dropped like a hot stone by the English-speaking media.

Correction: not “despite”; that should read “because.”

The fact is PEGIDA weren’t the ones throwing glass bottles and fireworks at Wednesday’s demonstration, it was the tens of thousands of left-wing counter-protesters who would stop at nothing to prevent the PEGIDA march from going ahead.

The activism by ironically self-proclaimed ‘anti fascists’ started well before the march was due to begin outside the Leipzig opera house. Appraised of the fact that train-loads of PEGIDA supporters would be coming from Dresden, the home of the movement where they had their own march banned by police, they deigned to prevent their arrival by setting fire to the railway between the two cities.

The dynamics will sound familiar to Americans. The liberal ruling class is methodically erasing German civilization by displacing the population with massive hordes of Third World welfare colonists. Those who object are relentlessly demonized in the press, and opposed at the street level by leftist thugs of the Occupy Wall Street/Black Lives Matter stripe.

The police are for the most part on the side of the good guys. But they have to take orders from the bad guys. Police confirmed that it was the “antifascists” (i.e., left-wing fascists) who threw all of the bottles and explosives.

The situation is not stable; nor do hardcore leftists like Obama and his European equivalents want stability. As we were reminded incessantly during the 2008 campaign, they want change. Change into what is something that even now most people must not realize or else they would rebel.

Kudos to PEGIDA for recognizing massive Islamic immigration into Europe as war of conquest by other means. This sign reads, “Nonviolent and united against religious war on German soil”:

Army to Try Bowe Bergdahl for Desertion

Authorities are admitting what we all knew. Bowe Bergdahl, the useless moonbat for whom Obama traded five top terrorists in direct violation of the law, fell into enemy hands after he had deserted his post:

On Monday’s broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel, retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer of the London Center for Policy Research revealed to host Bill O’Reilly that sources tell him U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will face charges for desertion. …

“Bill, the Army has come to its conclusion and Bowe Bergdahl,” Shaffer said, “Sgt. Bergdahl will be charged with desertion. I have been told and confirmed by two other sources that his attorney was given what we call a charge sheet. A charge sheet is results of the investigation listing out the articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice that have been violated. The key violation is desertion. And this is has been done. The decision has been made. Let me be very clear. As a corporate entity, the Army has decided that they want to pursue Bergdahl for this violation.”

Looks like Obama’s purge of military officers who won’t compromise their integrity on his behalf is not yet complete.

A few questions remain:

1. Did Bergdahl not only desert but deliberately defect to the enemy?

2. Will he be shot by firing squad as he richly deserves, and as was the custom back when we fought wars to win?

3. Will Obama pay any price for a pro-Taliban act that was inarguably illegal and arguably qualifies as treason?

Racial Violence Against Foreigners in Africa

Multicultural ideology is summed up in the maxim, “Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, white countries for everyone.” This means that even though it is a thought crime of the utmost severity not to welcome penniless unskilled African immigrants into the USA, many of whom come infected with hostile Islamic ideology and even more of whom will be a drain on the welfare state for generations, Africans themselves are under no obligation to like it when they are the ones getting colonized by other races:

Clashes between Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) police and political protestors that left some 40 people dead last week also revealed the level of hostility towards the Chinese in the capital Kinshasa.

“Congolese, please” implored a sign in one store window, hoping it would be spared by the marauding protesters who attacked and looted around 50 Chinese-owned stores in the gritty, teaming Kinshasa neighbourhoods of Ngaba and Kalamu.

By the way, as part of the promised fundamental transformation of America our government is currently importing 50,000 colonists from the DRC.

Violence toward foreigners isn’t limited to the Congo:

In South Africa, anti-foreign mobs went on a looting rampage mid-week in the sprawling and highly political township of Soweto before spreading to other nearby centres.

The outbreak of pillaging, which targeted dozens of stores owned by Indians, Somalis and other foreigners, began in Soweto after a foreign shopkeeper shot dead a teenager who allegedly tried to rob him on Monday night.

It spread quickly to other townships west of Johannesburg, including Kagiso, where mini grocery shops mainly run by Pakistanis, Somalis and Bangladeshis have cropped up in many South African townships…

How nice that there is no racism now that control of South Africa has been relinquished by the whites who built it and turned over to black socialists.

This violence isn’t a new phenomenon:

The latest targeting of foreign-owned shops conjured up images of 2008 when South Africa was hit by a wave of xenophobic violence that left 62 people dead. It was one of the most internationally embarrassing episodes for post-apartheid genocide.

Embarrassing to moonbats, that is. South Africa is the test case for the repeal of Western Civilization in the name of political correctness.

Hostility specifically toward the many Chinese pouring into Africa is also an issue in Zambia:

In early 2014 two Chinese companies were attacked by robbers in a suburb of Zambia’s capital Lusaka, leaving a Chinese worker dead and six injured.

There are over 100,000 Chinese living or working in Zambia…

American Tea Partiers aren’t the only ones wary of massive immigration by people who don’t assimilate:

The Kinshasa residents also resent what they see as the Chinese preference for sticking together in segregated communities, retaining the customs, habits, and language in their native land.

Unlike the Third Worlders imported by quislings into the USA, Chinese immigrants to Africa are of major economic benefit, providing the intelligence and industriousness necessary to exploit the continent’s vast resources. However, like everyone who isn’t a fool, Africans reject the idea of being displaced from their own homeland.

62-Year-Old Teacher Slammed to Floor by Thug in Classroom

Educrats are overpaid as well as overabundant. But teachers in places like Paterson, New Jersey ought to be collecting combat pay:

The story:

The incident began when a John F. Kennedy High School teacher confiscated a phone from a student.

In the video, the 16-year-old student is seen grabbing his 62-year-old teacher and slamming him to the floor in an effort to get his cell phone back. It was all captured on video from another student in the classroom on Thursday, January 22nd.

Isn’t it heartwarming the way students rushed to the teacher’s defense?

Good thing this won’t get much attention from the national media. That way the teacher will not be subjected to the Two Minute Hate for stealing from and physically abusing a mere child who is even younger than Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown were when they too were oppressed.

McCain Heartily Booed at Arizona GOP Meeting

Please do not blame Arizona conservatives for the quintessential RINO, John McCain. We detest him as much as anyone does, as became obvious when the liberal media’s favorite “maverick” spoke at the annual Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party on Saturday. Some Republican delegates booed and turned their backs on him:

According to the Arizona Daily Independent, the only members of the audience who showed any appreciation for McCain were a “mostly silver-haired faction” and outside supporters reportedly brought in to cheer him on. … Activists also say that the ones who were cheering for him seemed oddly “choreographed.”

Phony, choreographed supporters? Sounds like McStain is taking after his ally Obama again.

mccain+obama

Like Obama, McCain has given Americans reason to believe he does not have their best interests at heart:

A former county chairman, Rob Haney, took it upon himself to pass out stickers bearing McCain’s face and the slogan, “Deport 2 Manchuria.” According to The Republic, the stickers reference the Cold War thriller “The Manchurian Candidate,” which depicts a Communist-brainwashed politician running for office. Haney believes that McCain is “destroying the country and the Republican Party.”

Apparently McCain’s attempt to purge the Arizona GOP of conservatives was no more successful than his half-baked excuse for a presidential campaign in 2008. He had better do some more purging if he wants to avoid finally getting dislodged from the Senate in 2016, when the progressive dinosaur will be 80 years old.

Afghans Refuse to Use Defective $8 Million Barracks We Paid For

That loud whooshing sound that you can hear all the way from Afghanistan is the federal government flushing your hard-earned money down the toilet:

It should have been a proud and ceremonial moment: The commander of the Afghan national police force was to officially take possession of the new barracks built with U.S. tax dollars for the men who would ensure the nation’s security and future. Instead, the 2012 incident was just another chapter in the long tale of American tax dollars wasted in the war-ravaged country.

After touring the $8 million building, located about 22 miles north of the city of Kunduz, the Afghan commander refused to take the keys from an Afghan army colonel involved in oversight of the project, making clear he did not think the building was was fit to accommodate his men. Built by local contractors and laborers under the eye of the Army Corps of Engineers, the building lacked working plumbing, heat and air conditioning. Even in an impoverished nation decimated by a decade of war, it was not up to code.

Spendthrift Big Government + Afghan corruption ≠ quality construction at a reasonable price.

The misbegotten attempt to transform Afghanistan into a civilized country has cost us over $1,000,000,000,000.00. We could have colonized Mars for less. Economically, vastly more damage has been inflicted on us by our own government during what was once called the War on Terror than by al Qaeda.

There is no question that once we leave, this noxious Islamic backwater will once again serve as a safe haven for terrorists, as it did before 9/11. Next time our government will hopefully know enough to blow the culprits and everything within 100 miles of them to hell and leave nation-building in the dustbin of history.
