Ferguson Fool Prefers ISIS to Local Police

This is the mentality promoted by the media and the federal government at the expense of normal, law-abiding Americans and the local cops who defend them from sociopaths like Michael Brown:

isis-ferguson

If this is a typical Michael Brown supporter, he could have a point. Assuming he could put together a sufficiently coherent sentence to explain how much he hates America, ISIS might welcome him into its ranks. Conversely, the Ferguson PD would probably force him to give back whatever he just stole.

A Portrait of the Man Without a Plan

In a short interval between a long golfing vacation and the three fundraisers on the schedule for today, our “Commander in Chief” put on a tie long enough to announce that his administration has no plan to deal with the growing threat from the Islamic State, which has been conducting mass executions, ethnically cleansing Iraq of Christians, and destabilizing the entire region, and which promises to soon pose a terror threat to the American homeland that will dwarf al Qaeda.

But Obama does have one recent accomplishment to his credit. When he briefly interrupted his golf to issue a perfunctory, pro-Islam response to the beheading of American journalist James Foley, he inspired a portrait that sums up his response to the rising ISIS menace.

Warning, like everything else having to do with the Islamic State, the portrait is gruesome.

Social Justice Department Loots Banks for Fortunes, Gives Money to Ultra-Left Activist Groups

No wonder Eric Holder traveled to Ferguson to show his support for the looters there. He is a looter himself. He does his looting on a larger scale, but it is looting just the same, and justified by the same corrosive leftist ideology. Here’s a particularly brazen example:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) keeps giving radical leftist groups that support President Obama huge amounts of cash collected from big banks to settle discrimination and mortgage abuse lawsuits filed by the government.

These “discrimination” lawsuits are sheer B.S., but it is cheaper for banks to just pay up than to get dragged through the courts by the relentlessly greedy federal government. Basically the way it works is, if a Person of Politically Privileged Pigmentation wants a loan and you don’t give it to him because he doesn’t have a job, or you charge a higher rate because of the risk, that’s discrimination. If you do give him the loan even though he can’t afford it, that’s mortgage abuse. This heads we win tails you lose approach to redistributing the wealth held in banks goes back to the Carter Era Community Reinvestment Act, and was a major factor in causing the housing collapse of 2008.

Rather than backing off from the disastrous policy of forcing banks to make loans on a racial basis, the Obama Regime has doubled down on it:

Judicial Watch first reported the scheme two years ago when Countrywide Financial Corporation doled out $335 million to settle its discrimination lawsuit with the feds. The money was supposed to be distributed to more than 200,000 minority victims who supposedly were charged higher interest rates and fees than white borrowers based on their race not their credit. Instead, a chunk of the money went to Democrat-tied groups not connected to the lawsuit, including the scandal-plagued Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and the open-borders National Council of La Raza (NCLR).

Now many of the same groups will get more money from a record $16.65 billion settlement with Bank of America. … Delinquent borrowers in Democrat strongholds like Chicago, Oakland and Detroit will also benefit from debt forgiveness.

Sorry, white people still have to pay their mortgages. In fact, you will have to pay higher mortgages to make up for the money banks are forced to lose.

Here’s how bad liberalism can get when lowlife community organizer types are put in charge of the federal government:

Leftover funds will go to politically-connected community groups—like the NCLR, Operation Hope and National Community Reinvestment Coalition—that intimidate banks into qualifying more minorities for home loans, even if they really can’t afford it. This part of the deal is conveniently buried in an annex to the 37-page DOJ agreement, but a publication dedicated to covering business, finance and economics draws attention to it in a scathing editorial that refers to the arrangement as extortion.

“In effect, the government has ordered the nation’s largest bank to create a massive slush fund for Democrat special interests,” states the editorial which reveals that radical Democrat activist groups stand to collect millions from Holder’s record deal with Bank of America. “The recession has dried up funding for such groups. But Holder’s massive bank shakedown could rebuild their war chests in a hurry.” The piece also points out that Holder has brokered other similar deals that will provide more back-door funding for the Democrat groups. They include a $13 billion agreement with JPMorgan Chase and a $7 billion deal with Citibank.

The word “corrupt” doesn’t do justice to the Justice Department. Hard left ideology digs below normal corruption to a form of antimorality that will result in the country being looted into ruin if it is not eradicated.

Michael Brown Reportedly Had Been Arrested for Murder as Juvenile

Apparently there is only one way to cut through the governmedia narrative and get to the truth about the “gentle giant” Michael Brown — drag the government into court:

We aren’t talking about strong-arm robberies of the type he was filmed committing on the day of his shooting.

His record also reportedly includes links to the infamous Crips street gang.

But if the media could pass off Trayvon Martin as a cute little child, why couldn’t it re-create Brown as a gentle giant, even if he did precipitate his own shooting by attacking hero cop Darren Wilson and beating him almost unconscious?

Some of the Illegal Alien “Children” Flooding American Schools Have Wrinkles and Gray Hair

When the media wants to advance its agenda by deifying sociopathic thugs like Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin, it portrays them as children or “teens.” Lately the same approach has been used to quell resistance to the massive hordes of Third World welfare colonists who have been illegally pouring across the undefended border. The whole farce has been taken so far that some of the needy foreign children who will be flooding American schools this fall have gray hair:

The mayor of Lynn, Mass. says that some of the illegal aliens from Guatemala who are enrolled in her city’s public schools are adults with graying hair and “more wrinkles than I have.”

“They are not all children,” Judith Flanagan Kennedy told reporters at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.

“One of the things that we did notice when we were processing some of these students coming in was that they were adults,” she said.

She added that the federal government will not allow school officials to verify their ages, even though one of the students turned out to be 35 years old.

Yet again we see that the federal government does not even pretend to be reasonable. It is imposing this invasion in an act of war against the American people — a people it is in the process of erasing by displacing. If you object, you are a racist and therefore have to shut up if you don’t want to be shunned.

Why Senate Confirmation Is Out of the Question for UN Global Warming Treaty

In case anyone is wondering why Obama would have to brazenly violate the Constitution in order to sign a UN treaty regarding the imaginary global warming crisis, have a look back to this piece from last April:

United Nations Cranks Up Hysteria on Faltering Global Warming Hoax, Demands We Change Our Lives

These changes, demanded by the Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, include the following:

More regulation from “experts”, technocrats and bureaucrats at supranational organisations, such as the one whose initials begin with U and end with N.

More taxpayer subsidies for expensive, inefficient renewable energy.

More nuclear power (with shale gas used as a transitional fuel to replace coal).

The abandonment of fossil fuels.

Less meat consumption.

A single, globally-regulated price for carbon dioxide.

More local-government-enforced walking, cycling and public transportation.

More back-door wealth redistribution from the West to the developing world in the name of “sustainability”

All at a cost to the global economy of up to 3.7 per cent of GDP by 2030, provided we act now.

You can see why even a Senate controlled by Democrats would refuse to sign onto this tyrannical lunacy. Arrogant as they may be, Senators are at least a little bit responsive to voters. Obama is not. He is fundamentally hostile to this country and its interests and no longer cares who knows it.

Obama Treason

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Andrea Tantaros

Until recently I thought they put Andrea Tantaros in front of the cameras mainly because she is young and pretty. Credit where it is due: she turns out to be one of the extremely few people in public life who know anything whatsoever about the history of Islam and have the guts to share that knowledge with others:

Naturally the ethnic thought police are righteously demanding that she retract the truth and smooth it over with politically correct lies.

Islam has been an exceedingly vicious cult characterized by torture, rape, enslavement, and gruesome murder since the days of Mohammad, whom Muslims are required to emulate. It has been at war with Western Civilization since the 7th century, when much of the Middle East was Christian. These facts are considered thought crimes by our pro-Islam ruling class, making Tantaros’s remarks an act of rebellion the Founding Fathers would have admired.

Big Government Begins to Take Control of Our Cars

Big Government gets its grasping hands into everything — even our cars:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the Department of Transportation, published last week an “advanced notice of proposed rulemaking” on “vehicle-to-vehicle communications.” …

In announcing its proposed rulemaking, NHTSA is stressing its intention to protect the “privacy” of American drivers.

Uh oh. When an Orwellian government vows to protect privacy, that means you are being spied on, regardless of assurances to the contrary.

The idea is to allow Big Government to communicate with your car via Basic Safety Messages.

The “Basic Safety Message” will be broadcast by the vehicle’s dedicated short-range communications system. According to NHTSA, this system will need to transmit certain specific information.

“For example,” says the technical report, “when a DSRC [dedicated short range communication] unit sends out a BSM, the BSM needs to: Contain the relevant elements and describe them accurately (e.g., vehicle speed; GPS position; vehicle heading; DSRC message ID, etc.).”

Bureaucrats will know where you are, where you are headed, and how fast you are going at any given moment.

Information is power; absolute power can only be achieved when our overlords know absolutely everything about us.

But NHTSA does not envision that the use of this type of technology will stop there.

The agency has published a “Preliminary Statement of Policy Concerning Automated Vehicles.” This statement describes V2V as part of a “continuum” leading to fully automated vehicles.

Big Government doesn’t let you spend your own money; why would it let you drive your own car?

Bureaucrats know best. Just sit back and they will take you where it is best for you to go.

UN Bureaucrat Floats Global Warming Hoax as an “International Public Health Emergency”

Never let a crisis go to waste, liberal authoritarians say, because they allow you to do things you could never justify otherwise. If the crises Big Government has already been able to create don’t suffice, declare an imaginary crisis:

Secretary of State John Kerry has called climate change “the biggest challenge of all that we face right now,” and his French counterpart has warned of climate “chaos” in 500 days, and now the U.N. climate change chief is implying that climate change can be viewed on a par with the deadly Ebola outbreak.

Christiana Figueres told a World Health Organization (WHO)-hosted event in Geneva Wednesday that “we are not very far” from the point where climate change should be declared an international public health emergency, according to her prepared remarks.

An International Public Health Emergency might justify anything the American people are too complacent to take up arms to stop, easily including Obama’s discarding the Constitution in order to sign a UN global warming treaty without the Senate’s consent.

Under international health regulations, a PHEIC [public health emergency of international concern] is declared in a case where “an extraordinary event” is determined to constitute a public health risk through the international spread of disease; and “to potentially require a coordinated international response.”

That is, Americans will have to submit to rule by the ardently anti-American UN, which as soon as it has the leverage will loot us into bankruptcy and/or cripple our economy out of pure envious spite. Both of these objectives are achieved by the global warming treaty Obama reportedly plans to sign in violation of the US Constitution.

In her speech Figueres declared that global warming is a disease, or rather…

“The disease is humanity’s unhealthy dependence on fossil fuels, deforestation and land use that depletes natural resources.”

That is, the disease is that we have a modern industrialized economy. But liberals will cure it by forcing us back to the Iron Age if not farther.

These people are unreachably insane and profoundly malevolent. They have total control of the executive branch of our government, and back it up with near total control of the media.

For context, remember that the global warming hoax has already been debunked, which they have tried to obscure by calling it “climate change.” CO2 levels continue to rise dramatically. According to the theory this whole power grab is founded on, temperatures should be rising in tandem. Yet they have not risen in 18 years, proving the theory to be false.

Mexican President Calls USA “The Other Mexico”

According to a recent poll, one in three of the Mexicans who still live in Mexico would come to the USA. Given that it is our government’s policy to leave the border undefended and even to lure invaders into the country with promises of lavish welfare benefits, it won’t be long before they make the trip north. No wonder Mexico’s president arrogantly refers to our country as “the other Mexico”:

Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto called on other states to “evolve” like California so the United States can be more like his home country.

Not to worry, President Pipsqueak. If current trends continue, you will get your way, complete with the poverty, corruption, crime, et cetera.

Appearing with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and California Governor Jerry Brown in Los Angeles, Peña Nieto called for amnesty legislation and more open borders while blasting governors who have taken a tough stance on illegal immigration.

How the borders could be any more open than they are now would be difficult to imagine. Already we have mariachi bands crossing the Rio Grande on elephants without arousing attention. Does he want our government to fly Third Worlders directly from their own countries into gringo welfare utopia at US taxpayer expense? The Obama Regime already thought of that.

“This is the other Mexico,” Peña Nieto reportedly said of the United States, which is [home] to an estimated 11 million Mexican immigrants, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The correct term is not immigrants, but irredentists, as Peña Nieto confirms by calling this “the other Mexico.” As we are constantly reminded, the Southwest was once part of Mexico. What we are not reminded of is that at the time Texas became independent, Americans outnumbered Mexicans in the region 10 to 1. Now that the land has been settled and developed by Americans, they want it back.

Although America evokes a great deal of contempt from hostile foreign leaders these days, at least Piñata Nitwit-o likes Jerry Brown:

Brown has already given illegal immigrants driver’s licenses, made California a sanctuary state, and signed the California DREAM Act. Peña Nieto thanked Brown for his generosity toward illegal immigrants and called on other governors to follow suit, chastising those who are against open borders as unethical.

Imagine if California had been ruled by treasonous quislings like Brown during World War II, and had welcomed in a massive Japanese invasion. We might have heard the same rhetoric from Hirohito.

But that wouldn’t have been nearly as bad.

There are already 33.7 people of Mexican origin in the USA; most have not assimilated and never will. Imperial Japan didn’t have the sheer numbers to permanently displace us from large parts of our country; Mexico does.

Peña Nieto’s army of conquest.

Feds: Uneaten Federally Mandated Lunches Make Students More Civic-Minded and Community-Conscious

The Worst Lady has driven public school students to the edge of revolt by helping to inflict upon then insufficient and horrid-tasting meals. But even if the uneaten food doesn’t make anyone healthier, it can mold youth into “civic-minded, community-conscious adults” — at least, that’s what the government says:

The U.S. Agriculture Department has found an upside to all those “healthy” school lunches that students refuse to eat: It says schools can use the plate waste as a “learning opportunity” to turn young students into “civic-minded, community-conscious adults.”

For example,

A blog on the USDA website explains that an elementary school in Northern Virginia is now donating untouched food to a local food pantry.

Why is the food untouched? Because politically correct federally micromanaged government food is worse than merely inedible; you wouldn’t even want to touch it. Students are opting to go across the street and buy their lunch at the local 7-Eleven instead. But the important thing as always is left-wing politics.

“The school’s Eco Team, run by sixth graders, ensures their fellow students are putting waste into the correct bin,” the blog says.

Hitlerjugend was bad enough. Now we have “Eco Teams.”

“The team then collects, weighs, categorizes, and places the food to be donated into separate refrigerators, provided by the Food Bus, a non-profit organization that works with schools to donate food that would otherwise go to waste.

As we all know, if there is one thing Big Government cannot abide, it is waste.

Global Warming Demotivational Research Tool

Liberals often advance their agenda by playing on emotions, but never to more entertaining effect than the sad clown gallery entitled Scared Scientists, which features professional global warmists wearing doleful faces as they contemplate how few people take their hoax seriously anymore.

Despite some ridicule, the project is not a total failure. It has inspired a new global warming research tool that will help inform the public regarding this crucial issue, featuring only slightly distorted versions of the original Gallery of Morose Moonbats.

Obama’s Escape From Planet Reality

Something good actually came of the pro-Islamic response Obama briefly interrupted his golf schedule to excrete following the execution of American journalist James Foley by Muslims: it has inspired David Wood to write a children’s book.

The 92% of Saudis who reportedly believe that the demonic death cult calling itself Islamic State “conforms to the values of Islam and Islamic law” are entirely correct.

Unfortunately, even though Wood’s book will be clear to small children, it is likely to go over the heads of the liberals who comprise our ruling class.

Transgendered Troops to Be Deployed Soon

Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation” of America isn’t over yet. The US military is still capable of winning battles, even if Obama’s policies prevent it from winning wars. Consequently the Community Organizer in Chief still has work to do:

Having already lifted the “don’t ask, don’t tell” ban on gays in the military, the Pentagon “likely will” allow transgendered Americans to serve openly in the military where 15,500 now secretly serve, according to a new report issued by top former generals.

It’s amazing that there are 15,500 transsexuals secretly serving in the military — until you realize they have no idea how many may be secretly serving, and pulled this number out of their ears.

Three of the top brass, endorsing the deployment of transgendered troops, also said their effort has the support of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and President Obama.

That I don’t doubt.

Good thing the purpose of the military is no longer to win wars. Under liberal rule, it is a combination make-work jobs program and social engineering laboratory. The enemy within is reducing the greatest fighting force in human history to a freak show.

ISIS Chant

It’s not as if we weren’t warned. The Islamic State’s proclaimed Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi told American guards, “I’ll see you guys in New York,” when he was released in 2009.

Obama Reportedly Plans to Abandon Constitution, Sign Suicidal “Climate Change” Agreement Without Senate’s Consent

Hope & Change is getting to the scary part:

Obama reportedly plans to do an end-run around Congress to forge an international climate change deal, effectively bypassing the Constitution’s requirement to get the Senate’s approval for a treaty.

The “climate change deal” is based on the bizarre delusion that the current climate is so optimal that any change would be disastrous and that the climate can be prevented from changing by repressing economic productivity and redistributing wealth to the Third World. The effect on the economy is explicitly intended to be devastating; according to liberal dogma, wealth creation prevents the climate stasis that has never existed in the earth’s history.

We could eventually cast off crippling climate laws, as Australia has been doing. But the long-term threat here is not to the economy, but to the Constitution.

Obama evidently plans to ignore the Senate’s power to block treaties that are not in US interests.

The New York Times reported that the agreement is slated to be signed at a United Nations meeting next year in Paris. However, because the U.S. Senate is unlikely to ratify any international climate treaty, Obama’s negotiators reportedly are working toward an alternative agreement – a “politically binding” deal that would serve in lieu of a bona-fide treaty.

With a growing number of people aware that global warming is a malicious hoax, and that combatting inevitable climate change not only would have no measurable effect on the weather but would likely set the economy into a tailspin, there is no chance of imposing this lunacy through democratic let alone constitutional means. So this is where Obamunism and constitutional democracy part company.

The treaty not only limits American economic output by restricting the carbon emissions that result from literally all productive activity, but entails wealth transfers from American taxpayers to despotic Third World countries favored by left-wing radicals like Obama.

As the Independent Sentinel notes,

Fines and reparations for use of fossil fuels will be levied. Our money and our control over our own resources will be turned over to the U.N.

Nations like China, Russia, India will not abide by it. This will be for the United States only. Mr. Obama believes we have raped the earth and must equally share our hard-earned wealth with the world. This “accord” will redistribute our wealth and resources to the world.

The reason not even a Senate dominated by Democrats will ratify the treaty is that to do so would be treason.

For Obama to get away with this would be a major step toward dictatorship. Already we are far past anything the Founding Fathers would have expected us to tolerate.
