Detroit 91-Year-Old Beaten, Robbed, Set on Fire in Own Home

Paul Monchnik, R.I.P.

Formerly the wealthiest city in America, demographically transformed Detroit now illustrates what the last members of America’s core population have to look forward to when liberals achieve their holy grail and whites are a minority:

A 91-year-old man was beaten, then doused with gasoline before he and his home in northwest Detroit were set afire by a burglar, police said.

Paul Monchnik, a retired TV repairman, was found dead in his burning home in the 20500 block of Bentler Court around 3 a.m. Monday.

“He lived by himself; he was nearly deaf, so he lived in his own little world and got along in his own little world very comfortably,” said son Scott Monchnik, 56, who learned Monday morning of his father’s brutal death.

Unfortunately, living in our own worlds is no longer an option, as the greater world is brought down around us. But at least Mr. Monchnik had one last chance to celebrate diversity.

German Expert Evaluates NASA Climate Data, Confirms That It Has Been Falsified

Just in case there is still anyone out there taking the federal government’s “scientific proof” of global warming seriously,

Veteran journalist Günter Ederer writes a piece reporting that massive alterations have been found in the NASA GISS temperature data series, citing a comprehensive analysis conducted by a leading German scientist. These results are now available to the public.

Ederer reports not long ago retired geologist and data computation expert Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert began looking at the data behind the global warming claims, and especially the datasets of NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS).

Ewert painstakingly examined and tabulated the reams of archived data from 1153 stations that go back to 1881 – which NASA has publicly available – data that the UN IPCC uses to base its conclusion that man is heating the Earth’s atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels. According to Ederer, what Professor Ewert found is “unbelievable”:

From the publicly available data, Ewert made an unbelievable discovery: Between the years 2010 and 2012 the data measured since 1881 were altered so that they showed a significant warming, especially after 1950. […] A comparison of the data from 2010 with the data of 2012 shows that NASA-GISS had altered its own datasets so that especially after WWII a clear warming appears – although it never existed.”

Ederer writes that Ewert particularly found alterations at stations in the Arctic. Professor Ewert randomly selected 120 stations from all over the world and compared the 2010 archived data to the 2012 data and found that they had been tampered to produce warming.

The old data showed regular cycles of warming and cooling over the period, even as atmospheric CO2 concentration rose from 0.03% to 0.04%. According to the original NASA datasets, Ederer writes, the mean global temperature cooled from 13.8°C in 1881 to 12.9°C in 1895. Then it rose to 14.3°C by 1905 and fell back under 12.9°C by 1920, rose to 13.9°C by 1930, fell to 13° by 1975 before rising to 14°C by 2000. By 2010 the temperature fell back to 13.2°C.

Not exactly panic inducing. But when there is no crisis to exploit, Big Government can be counted on to create one — out of thin air, if necessary. The following tactics were employed:

• Reducing the annual mean in the early phase.
• Reducing the high values in the first warming phase.
• Increasing individual values during the second warming phase.
• Suppression of the second cooling phase starting in 1995.
• Shortening the early decades of the datasets.
• With the long-term datasets, even the first century was shortened.

The original data had to be faked because it showed that the planet is currently cooling, which makes a complete mockery of liberal global warming dogma.

Five Obamacare Facts Everyone Should Know

Due to the partisan nature of the establishment media, not all Americans are aware of these five essential ObamaCare facts:

1. Insurance companies are withdrawing in droves.

2. “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” was a brazen and cruel lie.

3. Still waiting on that $2,500 in savings Obama promised you? You’re not alone. Premiums are skyrocketing nationwide.

4. Obamacare customers say their plans are “useless” due to soaring deductibles.

5. The Obamacare “death spiral” conservatives warned about is real.

See Breitbart for details.

Don’t blame Obama’s incompetence. Like his strategy to defeat ISIS, ObamaCare was designed to fail. ObamaCare’s collapse will create another crisis that Big Government will not allow to go to waste, as it turns the ratchet notch by notch toward Soviet-style “single payer” healthcare.

Health insurance stinks in a world run by people like Pajama Boy.

ISIS Announces Its Presence in the Homeland

Thanks to our quisling rulers, Islamic State jihadists sure get around. When they aren’t crucifying children or burying them alive in Syria, they are painting rocks in Ohio:

Police are investigating messages extoling the Islamic State group that were painted on a large rock at Youngstown State University in northeastern Ohio.

University spokeswoman Shannon Tirone says staff discovered the messages when they arrived on campus Monday morning. The messages on the rock outside of the Kilcawley Center read: “We are coming,” ”France Deserves Destruction” and “YSU supports ISIS.”

By all means let’s idly watch Obama import thousands upon thousands more “refugees” from Syria. Think how festive our campuses will look with all the colorful painted rocks.

Trudeau Regime Throws Military Out of Barracks to Make Room for Syrian Colonists

Nothing could be more emblematic of homeland security under liberal rule than evicting troops from their barracks so as to house imported hordes of Islamic “refugees” from the terrorist breeding zone Syria:

Soldiers and military personnel at a Kingston, Ont. base are being asked to clear their barracks to make room for an early wave of Syrian refugees arriving in just over a week, CTV News has learned.

Multiple residences at CFB Kingston are being cleared for Nov. 30 to house the refugees, according to an internal memo obtained by CTV News.

The orders will also affect some officer cadets attending the Royal Military College, many of whom are nearing exams.

And while the memo warns of the fast-approaching deadline, it does not indicate where military personnel will be resettled.

Under the adolescent Islamophile moonbat Justin Trudeau, authorities have other priorities.

The notice comes just two days after Minister of Immigration and Refugees John McCallum reaffirmed the government’s plan to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2015. …

Earlier this month, CTV News reported details from a document entitled “Operation Syrian Refugees” that suggested up to 900 Syrian refugees a day could arrive in Toronto and Montreal from Lebanon, Jordan and possibly Turkey.

If they are coming from Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey, they have already escaped the failed state in Syria, assuming they are even from Syria, so they are not refugees. But everyone knew that calling the Islamic colonists “refugees” was farcical anyway.

Among the easily foreseeable consequences of this lunatic treason are cancerous, dysfunctional, unassimilable, welfare-dependent Muslim ghettos that will soon deteriorate into no-go zones and, still more obviously, innocent Canadians dead of avoidable terror attacks.

Forget escaping to Canada.

DHS Knowingly Colludes With “Credible Fear” Asylum Scam

We all know that it is generally a load of crap when Third Worlders, including welfare colonists and Muslim terrorists, claim “credible fear” in order to obtain prized refugee status. Don’t the people in charge of defending the country from foreign incursion know it? Of course they do; but they knowingly collude in the scam:

The Obama administration let hundreds of illegal immigrants stay in the U.S. even though federal authorities knew in advance that an open borders group coached them to falsely claim “credible fear” to get asylum, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The operation was part of a scam conducted by an immigrant rights organization called the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NITA), which in recent years has coordinated demonstrations along the Southwest border in Texas and Arizona. In mid-2014 the group orchestrated a racket seeking to bring 250 illegal aliens into the U.S. through the Otay Mesa Port of Entry in San Diego, California. To assure the migrants were allowed to stay in the U.S., the group had them falsely claim that they had a “credible fear” of returning to their native country. Foreigners can claim asylum under five categories, based on fear of persecution over race, religion, nationality, political opinions or membership in a specific social group

In this particular case, the DHS agency charged with guarding the border—Customs and Border Protection (CBP)—actually admits knowing about the ploy in advance but allows the illegal aliens to stay anyways.


Credible fear asylum in the U.S. has become so popular that illegal aliens are hearing about it on Facebook and federal immigration authorities are overwhelmed with applications. In the last few years the number of foreigners, including large numbers from terrorist countries, asserting credible fear to gain asylum in this country has skyrocketed.

The Cloward-Piven strategy has been applied to immigration, overloading the system. Saul Alinsky would be proud.

In the last five years the number of “credible fear” asylum applications made at the border has increased sevenfold, from less than 5,000 to more than 36,000, a former Department of Justice (DOJ) and federal immigration official told Congress during a hearing earlier this year. …

Today, the backlog of credible fear cases pending in federal immigration courts is an astounding 450,000, according to a news report published this month. This could create huge national security risks because often asylum seekers are released from custody to await a court hearing.

At the rate the country is falling apart under liberal rule, America will be lucky to exist long enough for half of these invaders to have their rubberstamp hearings, assuming that many would show up for them anyway.

Left’s Poster Child for Islamophobia Busted by Turkey as ISIS Member

MSNBC fans know all about the trails and travails of oppressed Muslim Saadiq Long. But I doubt they will ever hear his name again:

A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media’s attacks against the U.S. government’s no-fly list for “unfairly” targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison — arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell.

It’s a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long’s cause was being championed by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.

His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed the story that Long wanted to return to his native Oklahoma from his current home in Qatar to visit his ailing mother but [temporarily] couldn’t because he was on the TSA’s no-fly list. They said his case represented institutional “Islamophobia.”

No doubt it did. Yet another story illustrates why Islamophobia is a good thing. You wouldn’t condemn someone for having Stepping-Out-in-Front-of-a-Bus-ophobia. Why demonize those sensible enough to keep their guard up against Islam?

Prince Charles Gibbers That Climate Change Is Root Cause of Muslim Violence and Dysfunction

A liberal is someone who, instead of looking for solutions to problems, looks for “root causes.” An inbred idiot liberal is someone who thinks the root cause of Islamic violence is climate change — like Prince Chucklehead:

Britain’s Prince Charles has pointed to the world’s failure to tackle climate change as a root cause of the civil war in Syria, terrorism and the consequent refugee crisis engulfing Europe. …

The prince said in an interview with Sky News, to be aired on Monday and recorded before the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris, that such symptoms were a “classic case of not dealing with the problem”.

A liberal Islamophile wants to tell us all about not dealing with the problem of Islam.

“We never deal with the underlying root cause which regrettably is what we’re doing to our natural environment,” he said, noting that far greater problems lay ahead if climate change was not addressed immediately.

To those who argue that Islam has been explosively violent since its inception 1,400 years ago, Charles could reply that there has been climate change that whole time, since there has always been climate change. But imagine the befuddled look on his face if a journalist ever thinks to ask him why climate change turns only Muslims into violent sociopaths and not everyone else.

Don’t laugh too hard. Our “president” and the moonbat lined up to replace him both agree with Prince Chuckles that the chaos pouring out of Syria is caused by insufficient taxation and regulation of carbon emissions.

Two Former Firefighters Join the Racial Impostor List; Another Goes on the DL

To be a firefighter, it helps to be a member of a privileged special interest group that is less likely to be both physically and mentally qualified for the job. But if you are unlucky enough to be a white male, you can always fake it. This story from 1988 gives an idea of how long it has been since Affirmative Action lunacy got completely out of hand:

Philip and Paul Malone are fair-haired, fair-complexioned identical twins who worked for the Boston Fire Department for 10 years. Last month both were dismissed when a state agency ruled that they had lied on their job applications: They had contended they were black.

The finding has sent shock waves through the city government, touching off charges that employees of other agencies may have misused plans designed to [benefit nonwhite workers at the expense of more qualified whites who would otherwise get the job].

Investigations were launched, on suspicion that the need for qualified firefighters had resulted in systemic fraud:

City Councillor Bruce Bolling, who called for city and state investigations, asked: “How could twins with Irish names, Caucasian features and no black identification from any perspective get into the force and stay on without collusion? Such misuse denies opportunity to people of color, for whom these plans are designed.”

Since the 1970s, fire and police departments across the state and the Boston School Department have been under federal court orders to hire enough black and Hispanic employees so the work force reflects the racial composition of the general population.

Better late than never. Philip and Paul Malone have been added to the representative Racial Impostor List:

Philip and Paul Malone
Jeb Bush
Susan Taffe Reed
Michael Derrick Hudson/Yi-Fen Chou
Shaun King
Andrea Smith
Rachel Dolezal
Vijay Chokal-Ingam
Elizabeth Warren
Ward Churchill

In more recent news, from New York City:

A firefighter who was allowed to graduate the Fire Academy despite failing physical tests has already gone out on medical leave — just 10 days into the job, The Post has learned.

Probationary firefighter Choeurlyne Doirin-Holder injured herself [last] Monday while conducting a routine check of equipment at Queens’ Engine 308 in South Richmond Hill. Getting off the truck, Doirin-Holder missed a step and landed on her left foot, suffering a fracture, sources said.

Not to worry; her disability compensation will be generous in the extreme:

Doirin-Holder started another class in early 2014 but dropped out because of an injury. The FDNY then gave her a desk job and kept her on the payroll at top firefighter salary, $76,488. She made $81,376 with overtime in 2014 and entered her third class this summer.

Since she was injured on duty, she is eligible for a disability pension that would pay three-quarters of her annual salary, tax-free, if deemed unfit to return.

There is no question that she is unfit to return. Never mind about the fractured foot.

It was her second shift after a transfer from Engine 301. In training for a hazmat assignment, officers found her struggling to perform the required tasks.

Firefighters called the tripping incident embarrassing — and alarming.

“If you’re going to get hurt in the firehouse checking a rig, what would happen at a fire?” an insider asked.

What kind of racist thought criminal would put concerns like that ahead of political correctness?

Choeurlyne Doirin-Holder’s qualifications are self-evident.

Hate Poop Hoax at Vanderbilt

Virtually all supposed hate crimes against nonwhites are a load of crap. More evidence has piled up at Vanderbilt:

Motivated by the fake protest at Mizzou, Vandy decided they needed to have their own anti-racism protest. So a couple of hundred losers on campus showed up and denounced racism in a protest 99% of the campus paid no attention to. Because, you know, Vanderbilt isn’t racist. But whatever. That’s beside the point.

The day after the protest the protest group’s wet dream happened — there was poop in a black bag on the front steps of the black cultural center.

Racist poop!



This Vandy group immediately denounced the poop on the steps as a hate crime. …

“The Hidden Dores team is appalled to announce that our demonstration yesterday was met this morning with a vile act. This morning someone left a bag of feces on the porch of Vanderbilt University’s Black Cultural Center. The center has served as the nexus of many aspects of Black(sic) life on Vanderbilt’s campus since it’s (sic) inception 31 years ago. The violation of a place that in many ways is the sole home for Black(sic) students is deplorable. As many of us sit in grief, recognize that these types of actions are what we speak of when we note the reality of exclusion and isolation of students of color and specifically Black(sic) students on our campus. This act has hurt many and will nto be received lightly. We will not allow for the desecration of the place we call home. As we announced yesterday and reaffirm today, we will not be silent.”

Before you burst into sobs of commiseration, consider what the Vanderbilt police discovered during their very serious investigation:

Well, it turns out that it was a blind female student whose seeing eye dog pooped on campus and she couldn’t find a trash can.

The blind girl trumped the belligerent self-pity of the activist blacks with this:

“This action of posting a post like this on facebook for everyone to see before investigation isolated and excluded blind people on this campus who also face discrimination.”

If only the nauseating lunacy of political correctness could be contained on college campuses. Maybe if we had some kind of quarantine…

Yoga Class Suspended on Grounds of Cultural Appropriation

To the list of things totalitarian moonbat screwballs want to take away from us in the name of their nauseating ideology we can now add yoga:

A free yoga class has been suspended [because] student leaders at a Canadian university are concerned the practice of it could be seen as ‘cultural appropriation’.

Jennifer Scharf, who has been offering the weekly yoga class at the University of Ottawa campus for seven years, said she was notified in September that the program was being ended.

In an email from the Center for Students with Disabilities, staff wrote that while yoga is ‘accessible and great for students’, there are ‘cultural issues of implication involved in the practice’, the Ottawa Sun reported.

‘I’m not pretending to be some enlightened yogi master, and the point [of the program] isn’t to educate people on the finer points of the ancient yogi scripture,’ she told the Ottawa Sun.

‘The point is to get people to have higher physical awareness for their own physical health and enjoyment.’

It used to be okay for white people to practice yoga. But like saying the word “Chinaman” or naming a football team the “Redskins,” liberals have decided that now it is racist.

The center’s staff said that yoga has been under ‘a lot of controversy lately’ as a result of how it is being practiced and which cultures those practices are ‘being taken from,’ according to the Ottawa Sun.

Staff from the center also expressed that many of those cultures ‘experienced oppression, cultural genocide and Diasporas due to colonialism and western supremacy’.

Please make it stop.

Scharf … told the Ottawa Sun that the complaint that caused the program to come to an end came from a ‘social justice warrior’ with ‘fainting heart ideologies’ in search of a controversial issue that would attract public attention.

Scharf claimed people are just searching for a reason to be offended by anything they can find…

Now where would she get that idea?

No more yoga could mean no more yoga pants. Some people aren’t going to like that. Progs might get some resistance for a change.

Racist cultural appropriators.

Moonbat Tech: Pee-cycling

Anything having to do with human waste is bound to appeal to ecomoonbats. From the state that gave us Bernie Sanders:

“We’re all potty-trained,” Kim Nace reminded a small gathering of adults at the Rich Earth Institute in Brattleboro earlier this fall.

But, the nonprofit’s director added, humans can and should up their game.

Hundreds of urine donors in the area are making an effort.

The prospect of clean water downstream, achieved cheaply — is reason enough to donate your pee to science, Nace said.

Furthermore, research at the institute, partially funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, demonstrates that pasteurized urine is a first-class fertilizer on nearby hayfields.

Wherever dogs pee, the grass turns brown. But urine does contain phosphorus and nitrogen. However, if it isn’t economically viable to collect human urine and make it into fertilizer, the government is just pissing away our money again — and if it were economically viable, government involvement would not be necessary or likely.

[Nace’s] toilet at home, to work effectively, requires both men and women to sit down when taking a leak. A partition in the bowl sends urine down a pipe to a storage tank in the basement. The larger, more familiar hole, delivers solid loads to a composter.

A newly formulated “green” code for plumbers will help spur more such facilities, she predicts.

If your toilet requires a double flush to work properly because of government-mandated insufficient tank capacity, it is an Al Gore toilet. One day you may be forced to use a Kim Nace toilet, then cart the smelly harvest to a recycling center for the good of the delta smelts and polar bears.

In the meantime, Nace wants more of your money:

A further scaling up of collection and research would be easy, Nace said, but would require more than modest EPA and USDA grants.

Open up your wallets, taxpayers!

Obama Has Been Helping ISIS by Pulling Punches

Don’t take Dmitry Medvedev’s word for it that Obama has been helping ISIS. Listen instead to American pilots:

U.S. military pilots who have returned from the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq are confirming that they were blocked from dropping 75 percent of their ordnance on terror targets because they could not get clearance to launch a strike, according to a leading member of Congress.

Strikes against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) targets are often blocked due to an Obama administration policy to prevent civilian deaths and collateral damage, according to Rep. Ed Royce (R., Calif.), chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

How typically liberal to effectively side with the enemy while adopting a high moral tone. We can’t fight the people who are crucifying children and burying them alive because kids could get hurt.

The policy is being blamed for allowing Islamic State militants to gain strength across Iraq and continue waging terrorist strikes throughout the region and beyond, according to Royce and former military leaders…

ISIS would not even be in Iraq if Obama had not thrown away our hard-won victory there by prematurely withdrawing US troops. It might not be in Syria either if not for Obama’s counterproductive attempts to undermine Assad, who like those Obama has helped overthrow on behalf of radical Islamists (Gaddafi, Mubarak) is not up for sainthood but is vastly preferable to his likely replacement.

Jack Keane, a retired four-star U.S. general, agreed with Royce’s assessment of the administration’s policy and blamed President Barack Obama for issuing orders that severely constrain the U.S. military from combatting terror forces. …

“Believe me,” Keane added, “the French are in there not using the restrictions we have imposed on our pilots.”

That’s because even France under a socialist president is far more likely to take on the enemy than America under this appalling disgrace of an administration.

Some token attack on the Islamic State has to take place, or the T word (treason) would start being heard within the Beltway. So Obama drops leaflets to make sure the terrorists have plenty of time to clear out of harm’s way. No, I’m not kidding:

According to Bridget Johnson of PJ Media, actions taken by U.S. forces in the wake of the Paris massacre include an effort to interdict ISIS oil tanker traffic. U.S. aerial assets carried this out by bombarding the trucks with leaflets warning drivers that an air strike would follow within forty-five minutes. What followed was, evidently, not air strikes at all, but low-level buzzing by U.S. Navy fighter-bombers.

The excuse is to avoid hurting the truck drivers. However:

It’s not like these drivers are innocent, uninvolved “civilians” like children or sick people. They’re waging ISIS’s war, just like the other non-uniformed participants who make up 100% of ISIS’s ranks.

The rules of engagement for the token forces going through an expensive charade of pretending to fight ISIS are “the most restrictive in terms of rules of engagement that we have ever entered into in the last 25 years,” according to Keane. Considering the almost comical restrictions in Afghanistan, that is really saying something.

The ISIS response to Obama’s insistence on zero civilian casualties is easily predictable to anyone familiar with the way Muslims fight:

All it has to do is surround itself with civilians and it’s invulnerable. Just like the Taliban did in Afghanistan.

Everything Obama has done in the Middle East points to the same conclusion: he is sympathetic toward our worst enemies, which comes as no surprise to those familiar with his ideological background.

Majority of Americans Feel Alienated by What Is Presented to Them as Their Country

Looks like diversity is working:

According to the Reuters survey, 58 percent Americans say they “don’t identify with what America has become.” While Republicans and Independents are the most likely to agree with this statement, even 45 percent of Democrats share this feeling.

More than half of Americans, 53 percent, say they “feel like a stranger” in their own country. A minority of Americans feel “comfortable as myself” in the country.

This is not a bug or even a feature of the politically correct ideology of our ruling class; it is the purpose. To establish the degree of tyranny required to achieve utopia, any meaningful notion of community must be destroyed. The exceptions are outlier communities (blacks, homosexuals, Muslims, etc.) that can be deployed against the core population according to cultural Marxist strategy. Regular Americans must become atomized so that each of us feels alone in being horrified and disgusted at what liberals are turning our country into; otherwise, people would never go along with what they see when they turn on their television sets.

Columbia Student Says She Is Traumatized by Having to Learn About White People

The special snowflakes on college campuses truly need their safe spaces. Without them, they would be subjected to trauma like this:

Columbia students and faculty gathered Wednesday night for a panel discussion on “Race, Ethnicity, and University Life.” According to the Columbia Daily Spectator, much of the commentary revolved around the idea that minorities on campus simply spend too much time being traumatized by the white-centric content of their classes.

One of the panelists at the event was black Columbia student Nissy Aya. Aya was supposed to graduate in 2014, but instead is only on track to receive her degree in 2016. That, Aya says, demonstrates “how hard it has been for me to get through this institution,” though it’s worth noting she is an exceptional case, as Columbia has one of the highest four-year graduation rates in the country.

Aya attributed some of her academic troubles to the trauma of having to take Columbia’s current Core Curriculum, which requires students to take a series of six classes with a focus on the culture and history of Western, European civilization. Aya says this focus on the West was highly mentally stressful for her.

“It’s traumatizing to sit in Core classes,” she said. “We are looking at history through the lens of these powerful, white men. I have no power or agency as a black woman, so where do I fit in?”

Chances are good Nissy would fit in best cleaning rooms at a Motel 6, so long as she is properly supervised. But thanks to Affirmative Action, she has taken the slot earned by a more deserving person of politically incorrect pigmentation at Columbia.

Aya cited her art class, where she complained that Congolese artwork was repeatedly characterized as “primitive.” She wanted to object to that characterization but, in the Spectator’s words, was “tired of already having worked that day to address so many other instances of racism and discrimination.”

Congolese artwork:


White people artwork:


If you can tell the difference, congratulations, you qualify as a racist.

Educrats can be counted on to reflexively side with Nissy. Gibbered Roosevelt Montás, Columbia’s associate dean for the Core Curriculum:

“Part of what is exciting about this conversation is that it’s issuing accountability for us to look within ourselves and try to understand the way that racism shapes how we see the world and our institutions.”

Maybe the more deserving white student who got bumped so that Nissy could make Columbia more “diverse” actually caught a lucky break.

Washington Post Fact Checker Ignores the Facts While Attacking Trump and Defending Muslims

WaPo’s fact checker sure stuck it good to The Donald:

Crows Kessler:

Trump says that he saw this with his own eyes on television and that it was well covered. But an extensive examination of news clips from that period turns up nothing. There were some reports of celebrations overseas, in Muslim countries, but nothing that we can find involving the Arab populations of New Jersey.

That’s four Pinocchios for you, Mr. Trump!

But wait, look what Powerline quickly found in Kessler’s own Washington Post, dated September 18, 2001:

In Jersey City, within hours of two jetliners’ plowing into the World Trade Center, law enforcement authorities detained and questioned a number of people who were allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops while they watched the devastation on the other side of the river.

Who gets the four Pinocchios now?

Liberal Media Moonbats Claim Lady Liberty Is a Muslim

Obama often blathers delusionally about the supposed contribution of Islam to American culture, raving at one point that Muslims built “the very fabric of our nation.” His friends at the Washington Post have finally uncovered what they are passing off as evidence to back him up:

The man who designed the Statue of Liberty once worked on project that would’ve involved a towering Egyptian peasant woman, meaning the iconic New York City monument’s roots can be traced to Islam, according to the Washington Post.

That’s some stretch, even for the Islamophile propagandists who control the “mainstream” media establishment.

“The first draft for what would become the nation’s symbol of welcome to the ‘huddled masses’ was conceived by French sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi not for the Statue of Liberty but for an entirely different project: a lighthouse that would stand at the entrance to the Suez Canal,” writes the Post’s Yanan Wang.

“Bartholdi would carve the likeness of an Egyptian peasant woman holding aloft a torch of freedom. The monument, twice as high as the Sphinx, would guard the waterway’s entrance and perhaps double as a lighthouse. Its name would be Egypt (or Progress) Bringing Light to Asia,” she added, citing the historian Michael B. Oren.

But Muslim societies tending to be economically dysfunctional, that project fell through due to lack of funds.

Bartholdi later met with French abolitionist Edouard Rene de Laboulaye, and suggested that France give the United States a gift to recognize the close of the American Civil War. Drawing from his scrapped plans for the Suez Canal, the French sculptor hit upon an entirely new idea: A towering version of the Roman goddess Libertas.

This is how Wang tied the Statue of Liberty to the idea that it was conceived originally as an Egyptian Muslim.

The Daily Beast actually ran a piece floating the Lady Liberty Is a Muslim canard as an argument for allowing thousands of Islamic “refugees” from the terrorist breeding grounds of Syria to continue colonizing the country.

In their desperation to find anything of a factual nature that would support their ideology, liberals have lost all fear of making fools of themselves.
