Obama Shovels Money at Iran as He Removes Obstacles to Nukes

Since 1979, the most aggressive enemy of the USA has been Iran under the control of an ambitious Islamist regime that has used terrorist cat’s paws to kill Americans throughout the Middle East and that is sworn to our national destruction. When it looked like this regime would finally be overthrown by the people it oppresses, Obama conspicuously had not a word of support for the rebellion, which was soon crushed. In jarring contrast, he enthusiastically supported “Arab spring” rebellions that took down friendly (Egypt) or effectively neutral (Libya) governments, creating opportunities for the sort of hostile Islamists who run Iran. Now he has been helping Iran to acquire nuclear weapons by moving obstacles out of its way. In case it was not yet obvious whose side Obama is on, this should clear things up:

The Obama administration on Wednesday paid $490 million in cash assets to Iran and will have released a total of $11.9 billion to the Islamic Republic by the time nuclear talks are scheduled to end in June, according to figures provided by the State Department.

Today’s $490 million release, the third such payment of this amount since Dec. 10, was agreed to by the Obama administration under the parameters of another extension in negotiations over Tehran’s contested nuclear program that was inked in November.

Money is the only reason the mullahs are willing to go through the charade of negotiating with Obama, whom they openly despise. Only a total fool would imagine they have any intention of foregoing the continued development of nuclear weapons with which to kill American civilians.

These cash payments by the United States have been made with no strings attached, prompting concerns that Iran could use the funds to finance its worldwide terror operations, which include the financial backing of Hamas, Hezbollah, and other rogue entities.

These operations have already been used to kill Americans (e.g., the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing, the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, direct assistance to terrorist insurgents in Iraq).

Not all of the money Obama is sending the mullahs will go toward terrorism. Some will finance the continued development of ballistic missiles. Iran doesn’t need these for a nuclear attack on Israel, but the USA is farther away.

Mark Dubowitz, the executive director of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), said the ongoing release of these assets has provided Iran with a critical “financial lifeline.”

“The Obama administration provided Iran with a financial lifeline through both direct sanctions relief and the de-escalation of sanctions pressure that helped the regime stabilize its economy after a severe sanctions-induced economic crisis in 2012 and 2013,” Dubowitz said. “It is not a surprise that this has increased Iranian negotiating leverage and hardened the supreme leader’s nuclear intransigence.”

Not a surprise, or an accident either. How could it be?

There is a line between incompetence and treason. Whether Jimmy Carter crossed it by withdrawing support for our ally the Shah and thereby helping the current Iranian government to power is debatable. With Obama, it is an easier call.

Feds Blow Half a $Million Studying Homosexual Hookup App

Maybe Voltaire had it wrong. He should have said, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who your money is being thrown at.” Under Bathhouse Barry et al., that includes gays:

The government awarded $432,000 to Columbia University to interview gay men who use GPS dating apps and determine whether it increases their likelihood of engaging in risky sexual behavior.

Let me guess the results: “Duh. What did you think?”

The project argues that dating apps that use the Global Positioning System, or GPS, has “accelerated” the rate that gay men can find sexual partners, compared to online.

Apparently that’s what the bureauweenies at the NIH have on their minds, rather than curing cancer, or better still correcting the mental abnormalities that result in liberalism.

The study is examining “how and why smartphone applications are used for sexual partnering,” how gay men “present themselves,” communicate, and what they look for on apps like Grindr.

The project is also studying the sexual arousal level of gay men when using the apps.

That’s the kind of thing you have to study if you want a federal grant — which helps explain why Big Government should be kept as far away from medical research as possible.

Meanwhile, as $millions are flung to the four winds, the national debt has surpassed $18 trillion.

Oakland Public Elementary School Devotes Week to Extolling Black Panther Party

Glenview Elementary, the Oakland public elementary school that last year horrified parents with its homosexual indoctrination of children as young as five, doesn’t limit itself to promoting perversity. Instilling Black Power dogma is also crucial if children are to grow up to be politically correct Democrats. This includes deification of the violent Black Panthers. A parent received this flyer by email (click for full size):

glenview-black-history

The Black Panther Party, which will be celebrated for an entire week by Glenview Elementary, did more than hand out breakfasts. This explicitly anti-American Marxist organization is best known for blurring the line between radical politics and organized crime. Part of its original platform was that all blacks in prison should be released. Small wonder that this should be a priority, considering that as Discover the Networks notes, “BPP members were arrested 348 times for murder, armed robbery, rape, and burglary in 1969 alone.”

The BPP originated right there in Oakland as a street gang.

Today we have the New Black Panther Party. Samir Shabazz, head of the Philadelphia chapter, has gone on the record as advocating the killing of white children:

Maybe the killing “crackers and they babies” agenda item will make the Glenview Elementary syllabus next year.

Senate Decrees That “Climate Change” Is Not a Hoax

As Al Gore likes to bellow, the debate is over. The US Senate has voted 98-1 that “climate change,” as global warming is now called in light of it not getting warmer, is not a hoax:

US Senate Republicans joined Democrats and went on record Wednesday acknowledging that climate change is real.

The symbolic amendment, attached to a controversial bill authorizing construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline…

The 16-word measure states: “It is the sense of the Senate that climate change is real and not a hoax.”

The bad news is that the global warming hoax having been certified as real by the government means that the planet is doomed if we don’t let that same government radically reduce our freedom and our standard of living. The good news is that a fortune will be saved on research, now that we know that scientific questions can be settled by a simple vote in the Senate rather than by evidence.

Astrophysicists must be eagerly awaiting a future vote that will determine the exact size and age of the universe. It will also be interesting to learn from the Senate whether extraterrestrial life exists, and how life began on earth.

Having claimed the power to make global warming not be a hoax, maybe the new Republican Senate will reach across the aisle to Obama by proclaiming his Affirmative Action presidency not to be a farce.

The only Senator with the dignity to oppose this absurd amendment was Roger Wicker (R-MS). Even global warming infidel Jim Inhofe (R-OK) voted for it, on the grounds that of course the climate changes; it always has and always will. Technically the amendment doesn’t specify that human carbon emissions make it be too hot out — although this is clearly implied.

al gore the end
Senate-certified silliness.

Dissident Chicago Blacks Respond to SOTUS

We heard Joni Ernst’s response on behalf of the GOP to Obama’s falsehood-saturated State of the Union speech. Now let’s hear from some of the better-informed residents of the city that launched Obama’s political career. Via Rebel Pundit:

In fairness, a response to this response by our zillionaire overlords who are currently canoodling and conspiring in Davos would no doubt be far more favorable to the Moonbat Messiah, if only a member of the hoi polloi could get near them with a video camera.

IRS Hires Same Crony Capitalists Who Botched HealthCare.gov

Private companies learn from their mistakes or go out of business (unless they are well connected). Not the Feds, who are protected from the consequences of their errors by unlimited access to our money:

Seven months after federal officials fired CGI Federal for its botched work on Obamacare website Healthcare.gov, the IRS awarded the same company a $4.5 million IT contract for its new Obamacare tax program.

CGI is a $10.5 billion Montreal-based company that has forever been etched into the public’s mind as the company behind the bungled Obamacare main website.

After facing a year of embarrassing failures, federal officials finally pulled the plug on the company and terminated CGI’s contract in January 2014.

Yet on Aug. 11, seven months later, IRS officials signed a new contract with CGI to provide “critical functions” and “management support” for its Obamacare tax program, according to the Federal Procurement Data System, a federal government procurement database.

CGI boobs are responsible for 21,000 lines of defective code in the infamously disastrous HealthCare.gov website.

Scott Amey, the general counsel for the non-profit Project on Government Oversight, which reviews government contracting, examined the IRS contract with CGI.

“CGI was the poster child for government failure,” he told The Daily Caller. “I am shocked that the IRS has turned around and is using them for Obamacare IT work.”

CGI was responsible for other debacles in Massachusetts, Vermont, and Ontario.

Why does the Obama Regime insist on throwing our money at this foreign company despite its firmly established incompetence? Possibly for the same reason it was awarded the ObamaCare website contract on a no-bid basis. Michelle Obama’s crony Toni Townes-Whitley is now President at CGI Federal. The Bitter Half and Townes-Whitley were both members of a radical racist group called the Organization of Black Unity back in their college days.

Under our Hopey Changey system, merit is irrelevant. It’s all about who you know.

Toni-Townes-Whitley
Toni is worth any number of competent coders.

Gore, Calderon Hatch $90 Trillion Plan to Take Our Cars and Force Us Into Sardine Tins

The USA is already $18 trillion in debt, what’s another $90 trillion spread across Western nations? That’s how much Al Gore and Felipe Calderon want to spend to redesign cities so that we are packed together like sardines and don’t need cars anymore. The idea is to save the planet from the nonexistent menace of anthropogenic global warming.

Gore and Calderon announced the proposal with colleagues from The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate at the annual World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland Wednesday, Business Insider reported. The conference – attended by some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world – runs from Wednesday through Saturday.

Our moonbat masters flew 1,700 jets into Davos so they could conspire regarding how best to rule us in the interests of the planet. They have a lot of harmless but politically incorrect carbon emissions to force us to make up for.

Vanderbilt Muslims Move to Silence Black Professor Carol Swain

In the Age of Obama, it is easy to get the impression that blacks are a privileged caste, immune from criticism. Actually this is not true. Blacks who conform to the left-wing ideology of the ruling class are rewarded. But blacks who escape the intellectual plantation will be hunted down and lynched. A case in point is veteran Vanderbilt law and political science professor Carol Swain:

Her op-ed, entitled “Charlie Hebdo attacks prove critics were right about Islam,” appeared in The Tennessean (Nashville’s main newspaper) on Jan. 15.

Swain, who opposes burqas and advocates stronger efforts at assimilation for American Muslims, argued that radical Islam “poses an absolute danger to us and our children unless it is monitored better than it has been under the Obama administration.”

Siding with Western Civilization against expansionist Islam is not permissible on college campuses, as Vanderbilt undergrad Farishtay Yamin was quick to remind anyone within screaming distance.

Yamin told The Vanderbilt Hustler, the campus newspaper, that she “could not believe her eyes” when she read Swain’s column. The student also quickly labeled Swain’s opinion as “hate speech.”

She then used Facebook to set up a “Campus-Wide Protest Against Hate Speech Published in the Tennessean” on Saturday afternoon.

Attendance at the fairly brief event was in the low hundreds, The College Fix reports. Students who showed up brought signs emblazoned with slogans such as “Better a brat than a bigot.”

Yamin, who is the publicity chair for Vanderbilt’s Muslim Student Association, told the audience in no uncertain terms that a black female professor’s speech must be restricted if she says “these kinds of things” in the future.

If rallies don’t work, and as the Muslim population continues to rise, people like Swain will be in for Charlie Hebdo–style persuasion, which has served the Muslim world well for 14 centuries.

Note how obviously the concepts of liberalism, diversity, and tolerance have been twisted into the opposite of what these words once meant:

“What I’m really trying to show her is that she can’t continue to say these kinds of things on a campus that’s so liberal and diverse and tolerant,” Yamin declared.

In the name of liberalism, no diversity of opinion will be tolerated regarding the sanctity and harmlessness of Islam.

Mark Bandas, the dean of students at Vanderbilt, also got into the act. He appeared at the “Campus-Wide Protest Against Hate Speech” to offer encouragement.

Professor Swain is unlikely to get much support from the academic establishment, considering her previous thought crimes. Here she expresses unsavory opinions regarding the Moonbat Messiah:

Ofsted Bureauweenies Go After Christian Schools

British parents may circumvent leftist brainwashing and declining educational standards by sending their kids to religious schools — but not if Ofsted can help it.

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services, and Skills, a nonministerial department of the British government:

We inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

This entails sending inspectors to harass Christian schools suspected of not conforming to what leftist bureaucrats insolently portray as “British values”:

Primary-aged pupils at a leading Christian school faced questions about homosexual practice as they became the latest target of controversial ‘British values’ rules.

The principal of the school, Chris Gray, has written a formal complaint to Ofsted accusing their inspection team of adopting a “hostile” stance against the school’s Christian ethos.

Children aged six to eighteen at Grindon Hall Christian School in Sunderland faced intrusive questioning by Ofsted inspectors about transsexualism, homosexuality and religious festivals. …

Parents objected to questions their children were asked, including if they knew what lesbians “did” and if their friends felt trapped in the “wrong body”.

Apparently the authorities are as eager to encourage transsexuality in children in Britain as they are in the USA.

“The offer of a one to one meeting with an inspector”, Mr Gray continued, “in order to discuss personal matters of sexuality was also viewed with alarm by some parents”.

One mother said that her daughter felt “disturbed” and “upset” by the “wholly inappropriate” manner of questions asked.

Imagine people like Obama’s former Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings, who has been tied to NAMBLA, meeting one on one to discuss sexuality with your child.

The inspectors knew exactly what they were looking for, and were determined to find it whether it was there or not. One student said, “It felt like she wanted a certain answer from us and wouldn’t be satisfied until she got that answer.” Another felt that the inspector was “manipulating the conversation to make us say something to discredit the manner of teaching in school.”

Students were also asked whether they celebrate foreign religious festivals like Diwali, which is Hindu.

In October last year a small Christian school in Reading was threatened with closure when Ofsted said it was failing to promote other faiths in assemblies.

Not all multiculturalism is approved. Traditional Jewish education is also disfavored by the authorities:

Jewish school pupils were left “traumatised” after Ofsted inspectors asked whether or not they had a boyfriend and how babies are made.

Unsurprisingly, Grindon Hall appears to have failed inspection:

A Christian school with some of the best exam results in its area has been given the worst possible grading by Ofsted…

Grindon Hall Christian School in Sunderland was told that its performance is inadequate in a report by the schools’ regulator, a draft version of which also included a paragraph attacking the school’s Christian ethos.

As principal Chris Gray notes,

“To issue a report that grades the best performing secondary state-funded school in Sunderland (latest published GCSE [General Certificate of Secondary Education] results) as the worst defies all common sense and logic.”

Actually, it makes perfect sense, considering that the government’s job is not to improve education, but to impose politically correct ideology.

Mr Gray drew attention to a paragraph in the draft report which is missing from the final version.

It read: “The Christian ethos of the school permeates much of the school’s provision. This has restricted the development of a broad and balanced approach to the curriculum.”

The Christian school was found guilty of being Christian, which is a violation of “British values.”

Bryant Gumbel, Still Barking Moonbattery

Every 10 years or so I like to check in to see if Bryant Gumbel (formerly of NBC’s Decay and now of HBO’s Real Sports) is still around and if he is still spewing moonbattery like a mentally disturbed adolescent. A fawning interview by Rolling Stone confirms that the answer is yes.

Grumbles Gumbel:

“There are a few things I hate more than the NRA. I mean truly. I think they’re pigs. I think they don’t care about human life. I think they are a curse upon the American landscape.”

That’s the thanks some people get for defending the precious Second Amendment, which in turn defends our lives and liberty.

Hopefully there will have been some improvement in his condition when we check in again in 2025. Maybe by then Gumball will have said something intelligent.

Segregated Propaganda: NBCBLK

Most blacks already live in a separate universe, defined by different facts, as they demonstrated by voting for Obama by a 19 to 1 margin despite his obvious unsuitability for the job. Why shouldn’t they have their own designated news source, purged of any information that would challenge their self-oriented worldview? NBC steps forward to meet this need with NBCBLK:

Last week, NBC News decided to single-handedly set race relations back a few decades by launching NBCBLK, a news website that features black people news to the exclusion of everybody else on Earth.

Remember when it was the bad old conservatives who advocated segregation? Things are different, now that racial discord is what keeps people like Obama in power and people like Al Sharpton rich.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for NBCWhite. That would be racist.

A Few Things Obama Didn’t Mention About the State of the Union

Your stomach wouldn’t take sitting through Obama’s SOTUS? Here’s what you missed:

[T]he federal government took in a record $739 billion in tax revenue in the first quarter of FY15 and STILL ran a $176 billion deficit.

A record number of Americans are not in work force – including a record number of women not in work force.

Obamacare has caused nearly five million people to lose their health plans and remains extremely unpopular with Americans.

More than 46 million Americans have been on food stamps for 38 straight months.

The price of ground beef is at record levels.

Actually, you missed these key facts even if you masochistically subjected yourself to Obama’s drone-a-thon. He was too busy mixing self-serving lies with calls for still higher taxes and even more wasteful spending to mention them.

Moonbat Elitists Fly 1,700 Private Jets to Davos to Discuss Global Warming

If the world were really in peril because carbon emissions are making it be too hot out, would the people yelling the loudest about this threat fly 1,700 private jets to conspire over champagne and caviar in Davos, Switzerland?

A squadron of 1,700 private jets are rumbling into Davos, Switzerland, this week to discuss global warming and other issues as the annual World Economic Forum gets underway.

The influx of private jets is so great, the Swiss Armed Forces has been forced to open up a military air base for the first time ever to absorb all the super rich flying their private jets into the event, reports Newsweek.

“Decision-makers meeting in Davos must focus on ways to reduce climate risk while building more efficient, cleaner, and lower-carbon economies,” former Mexican president Felipe Calderon told USA Today.

Davos, which has become a playground of sorts for the global elite, is expected to feature at least 40 heads of state and 2,500 top business executives. Former Vice President-turned-carbon billionaire Al Gore and rapper Pharrell Williams will be there as well; each plans to discuss global warming and recycling respectively.

Thank you, liberal elite oligarchical collectivists, for debunking your own hoax by demonstrating how little you believe in it.

Paris to Sue Fox News for Reporting on Muslim Threat

Now where would Muslims of the sort who pulled off the Charlie Hebdo massacre get the idea that they could impose censorship in France in opposition to the fundamental Western value of freedom of expression? Maybe from the folks running Paris:

The city of Paris plans to sue Fox News over what it described as derisive on-air comments, a spokesperson confirmed to CBS News.

They plan to sue for damage to “the honor and image of Paris,” the spokesperson told CBS News’ Elaine Cobbe.

The offense Fox News committed was shining a light on the Islamic colonization problem that the recent massacre brought to the surface, and that moonbats would prefer everyone to ignore.

Fox News has come under attack in France recently for its portrayal of life in Paris’ Muslim neighborhoods in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks. According to the New York Times, the network has aired segments proclaiming parts of the French capital “no-go zones” for non-Muslims, which the police avoid.

The network’s flagship morning show “Fox & Friends” even went so far as to produce a map it said showed the “no-go zones.” They later apologized for airing the segment.

The natural next step after apologizing for reporting the news is getting sued for reporting the news.

Either a society respects freedom of speech or it doesn’t. If it doesn’t, people will jockey for position to be the ones who determine what can be said and what can’t. Muslims will do their jockeying by shedding blood. If they knew freedom would be respected no matter what, maybe they wouldn’t bother.
