Trey Gowdy: Next Speaker of the House?

Boehner’s pork-swollen CRomnibus sellout, in which he and his RINO collaborators knifed voters in the back by funding ObamaCare and the unconstitutional amnesty decree, may have been the final straw.

American Majority Action launched the #FireBoehner campaign back in 2012, in response to his purging conservatives from House committees. CRomnibus could give the movement new life:

Conservatives are once again calling for Boehner to be replaced as Speaker. This time, it’s none other than South Carolina’s own Trey Gowdy.

Gowdy has stated time and again that he won’t stand for lies, corruption, and contempt. His recent rant to Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber shows just what kind of congressman Trey Gowdy is.

Imagine a Speaker of the House who understands that politics is theater and who would actually put up a fight, rather than cuddle under the covers with Obama. Maybe there is hope.

Measuring Oppression by the Menu

A “black lives matter” moonbat proved that the police are repressive by managing to get himself arrested in Berkeley and then sharing a photo of the evidently subpar snack he was served in jail at 11 pm:

Imagine how oppressed he would consider himself if he was served up the revolting gunk Michelle Obama is credited for inflicting on public school students:

Others eat far better. On the menu at the $36,264 per year private school attended by the Worst Lady’s offspring:

Potato Sausage Soup; Firecracker Slaw; California Chef’s Salad; All Natural Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings; Sweet Potato Black Bean Bake; Sautéed Local Greens; Gemelli Alfredo; Sliced Pineapple

These days you certainly can’t expect to eat like that at a public school — or even in a Berkeley jail, where at least the menu seems to have escaped Mooch’s supervision.

Jeanine Pirro Lays Into Dianne Feinstein’s Treasonous “Torture” Propaganda

Democrats had better cook up some more anti-American propaganda. They still haven’t convinced Judge Jeanine that we need to apologize to terrorists:

Obama’s party will do literally anything to distract the public from his collapsing farce of a presidency. Absolutely nothing is beneath them, as Feinstein’s bogus report confirms.

Legal Immigrants Forced to Pay for Obama’s Illegal Amnesty

A favorite word of sanctimonious moonbats is “fairness,” so it isn’t surprising that Obama has applied the liberal concept of fairness to his unconstitutional amnesty decree:

As the debate rages on Capitol Hill about how to defund President Obama’s executive action that gives legal status to 5 million illegal immigrants, it’s important to take a look at where the funding for his new amnesty program is coming from.

The funding for Obama’s executive action is coming through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, a fee, not tax based agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security. Because the USCIS is a fee based agency, many have argued Congress cannot defund it.

Who pays this fee? Law-abiding immigrants of the type who are likely to contribute to American society instead of sponging off welfare.

On average legal immigrants wait ten years to fully obtain citizenship (and only after they’ve had a green card for five years) and they must pay thousands of dollars to USCIS in the process. Again, that money is now being used to give millions of illegal immigrants a free, expedited pass to legal status. Adding insult to injury, millions of green cards for illegals means longer wait times for legal immigrants.

In a kakistocracy, authorities do not encourage playing by the rules.

Obama Confirms That He Spends His Mornings Watching ESPN

So far Obama has been found to possess exactly one redeeming quality: he is too frivolous to devote himself full time to destroying our country. If he isn’t out playing golf, there is a good chance he is basking in the mind-numbing vacuity of ESPN. To quote our Historic First Adolescent President:

“I spend most of my time watching ESPN in the morning. I get so much politics I don’t, you know, want to be inundated with a bunch of chatter about politics during the day.”

A more thoroughly unqualified president would be difficult to imagine. He doesn’t even take an interest in the job.

Unfortunately Valerie Jarrett does.

Bill Whittle: The New Barbarism

Bill Whittle sums up progressivism (a.k.a. liberalism, moonbattery) nicely:

“Progressivism is a philosophy of lawlessness, disregard for truth, [and] contempt for individual lives and individual freedom. It is utter, total barbarism.”

The contrived spectacle in Ferguson, Al Sharpton’s career, and lies told by the odious Lena Dunham are all illustrative:

Kudos to Whittle for using the word “evil” to describe Obama and Holder. No other word will do.

Grade School Shuns Santa in Cambridge

The War on Christmas works like a ratchet. Each year liberals manage to eliminate just a little more of it, knowing that every manger scene, Christmas tree, or Santa appearance banned is a step closer to erasing the holiday altogether. All it takes is one complaint to tighten the ratchet another notch. From Cambridge, Massachusetts:

When Merline Sylvain-Williams went to her daughter’s holiday concert Friday, she knew something was missing. The music was great, as always, and the children were adorable. But a certain jolly, bearded figure was nowhere to be seen. Ho, ho, hmm.

Santa Claus, a festive fixture at the Peabody School’s concert in past years, was absent this time around, an apparent victim of a single complaint about whether he belongs in a public school.

Why wouldn’t he belong? Because Santa means “saint” and it has been a top goal of progressives for well over a century now to eradicate Christianity, which acknowledges a higher moral authority than coercive Big Government.

Parents were disappointed on behalf of their first to fourth grade children, but in a place like Cambridge reporters probably didn’t have to look long to find a moonbat:

Another mother, Salina Frazier, said it made sense to have Santa skip the show, given the diversity of the school.

Yet again we see that multiculturalism is a euphemism for repressing our own culture. I wonder if Salina is the one who dropped a dime on Santa and turned him in to the Thought Police.

Remember watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas as a kid? Did you ever imagine that in real life the Grinch might end up winning?

Liberal Elite Fashion: X-Rated Crucifix

Liberal elitists are fond of making sanctimonious demands that we respect the cultures and beliefs of others. It doesn’t occur to them that this respect must start at home:

The “Penis Pendant Necklace” is now available for purchase from designer Tom Ford.

According to Elle, Ford surprised the fashion world in June with his design, which features a penis and two testicles in the shape of a crucifix. Fashion editors and aficionados were quick to embrace the design, calling it “smarter than it looks” and an homage to ancient Roman phallic art.

We little people are only disgusted because we can’t grasp the sophisticated nuance.

If you really need to see it, here is what our opponents in the Culture War have to offer.

McCain Denounces America for Interrogating Terrorists and Even for Bombing Nazis

Only one moonbat could top Rep Jackie Speier (D-CA), who responded to Dianne Feinstein’s irresponsible “torture” report by demanding that the CIA apologize to Muslim terrorists. I refer of course to the most outrageously awful presidential candidate fielded by the Republican Party within living memory, Senator John McCain.

Watch in horror as he sides with America’s enemies both internal and external, then from atop his high horse turns the moonbattery dial up to 11 by proclaiming that the USA is iniquitous not only for interrogating terrorists, but also for bombing the put-upon Nazis during World War II:

Redemption can work in reverse. Those who have behaved contemptibly can redeem themselves with acts of heroism. Conversely, being a hero in a previous war need not prevent someone from behaving treacherously in the current war, as McCain illustrates. Conflating waterboarding with torture (which involves intense pain and mutilation) delivers powerful propaganda into the hands of our enemies, and justifies the torture of captured Americans.

Democrat Representative Jackie Speier Calls on CIA to Apologize to Islamic Terrorists

September 11

Let’s hope that terrorists looking for inspiration to help them get their nerve up for the next 9/11 don’t find Dianne Feinstein’s bogus “torture” report as compelling as congresscretin Jackie Speier (D-CA):

In an appearance on MSNBC on Wednesday, Speier reacted to the release of the [Senate Select Committee on Intelligence]’s report on the CIA’s Bush-era enhanced interrogation program by saying America’s clandestine services agency should issue a formal apology for the practice.

“Every single page had something in the executive summary that shocked me,” the California Democrat said. “Whether it was the rehydration anally or keeping them sleep deprived for one-hundred and eighty hours with their hands over their head in shackles. That is not what this country is about and we have got to shut this down.”

When asked if the CIA should issue an apology, Speier replied “Absolutely.”

That is, the people who prevented Islamic terrorists from carrying out a follow-up 9/11 should apologize to the terrorists for doing their job.

Here’s your apology, you Devil-worshiping savages:

How North Korea Deals With the Disabled

If you want to know what government-dominated healthcare will be like when statists are able to take it to its ultimate extreme, have a look at the country that has taken statism itself to the ultimate extreme — North Korea:

North Korea is systematically “cleansing” its population by making those with mental or physical disabilities disappear, a defector has claimed.

Ji Seong-ho … who is researching a book on the plight of North Korea’s disabled, said babies with disabilities are taken away by hospital staff, never to be seen again. He added that children with developmental difficulties are neglected until they die.

“The regime proclaims: ‘There are no people with disabilities under the Kims’ rule’ and ‘everyone is equal and living well’,” he said. “And while that propaganda is going on disabled children are being taken away, suffering indescribable things and dying.”

You want equality, right? That means holding everyone who is not part of the ruling oligarchy at the lowest common denominator. The only egalitarian alternative to letting the disabled die would be making everyone disabled.

A United Nations commission said in February that it had heard allegations that medical experiments are performed in “closed hospitals” on “persons with disabilities”. …

In a separate study, conducted in 2013 by the Citizens’ Alliance on North Korean Human Rights, some 40 per cent of defectors said they believed that infants with disabilities are killed or abandoned and 43 per cent claimed to know of “an island” on which the disabled are forced to live.

One of the defectors told of a hospital where disabled people are sent “for medical tests, such as dissection of body parts, as well as tests of biological and chemical weapons.”

We mostly have to rely on rumor and hearsay, since the Party completely controls the media (like the USA minus Fox News), but it seems obvious that North Korea is not the place to be for those with persistent medical needs.

But at least healthcare is free.

FDNY Lowers Physical Standards to Promote Diversity at the Expense of Public Safety

In a totalitarian society, nothing matters except the officially correct ideology — not even public safety, as the New York Fire Department confirms:

The Fire Department has stopped requiring probationary firefighters to pass a job-related physical-skills test before getting hired — a move that critics derided as a lowering of standards.

Why would a fire department deliberately lower standards? Don’t they know lives are at stake? Here’s why:

The move by first-year Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro, which allows probies to fail components of the Functional Skills Training test but still graduate from the Fire Academy, comes amid criticism of the department’s low hiring rate of women.

Suspicions that Nigro was made commissioner because someone thought his name would help fill a quota could not be confirmed.

While 95 percent of men pass the FDNY’s demanding physical test, only 57 percent of women manage to get through.

If you aren’t light enough for a girl to carry, try not to get stuck in any burning buildings in New York.

Anti-KKK Artwork Sanctimoniously Banned for Reminding Morons of the KKK

Rule by hysterical, ideologically deranged mob was not much fun during the Salem Witch Trials or the French Reign of Terror. The same goes for the contemporary American college campus, where the mob is in full fury over anti-KKK artwork because it reminds them of the KKK:

University of Iowa (UI) students, faculty, and administrators are speaking out in support of the censorship of a statue created and displayed on campus by visiting professor Serhat Tanyolacar that they say constitutes “hate speech.” Tanyolacar’s piece comprised a seven foot tall sculpture of a Ku Klux Klan member whose robes are crafted from newspaper articles about racial violence. Many members of the UI community, however, ignored the intended anti-racist message of the piece and instead demanded that the university take action against what they perceive as a racist display—and the university is complying.

That’s how desperate collegiate liberals are to find something politically incorrect to ban.

Tanyolacar erected the statue last week on an area of campus called the Pentacrest with hopes to “facilitate a dialogue with a community on a college campus,” responding to the controversy over the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. But students judged the piece to be racist and offensive, and within hours, university police instructed Tanyolacar to take his piece down.

Tanyolackey must have already known that on a college campus, to “facilitate a dialogue” means to scream leftist dogma — which is exactly what his “artwork” does. No other communication is allowed. But he was likely surprised to discover that not even his inflammatory and cartoonishly obvious left-wing propaganda is safe from liberal censorship in a realm where everything must be dumbed down to the comprehension level of students who are there to fulfill quotas and take remedial reading classes.

Like all totalitarian movements, political correctness has predictably degenerated into eating its own. It has also degenerated into self-parody:

Echoing the sentiment of a growing group of “Hawkeyes” who have voiced concern, if not outrage, over a Ku Klux Klan effigy that sat for nearly four hours Friday on the University of Iowa Pentacrest, President Sally Mason has called the campus response “not adequate.”

“Nor did that response occur soon enough,” Mason said in a message sent Sunday to the university community. “For failing to meet our goal of providing a respectful, all-inclusive, educational environment, the university apologizes.”

Four whole hours passed before educrats censored the inadvertent thought crime. Not to worry, they will make amends by doubling down on authoritarian moonbattery.

Mason … said in her message that she plans to meet with concerned students Wednesday to “prepare a detailed plan of action” that will include input from those affected by the incident. The plan will look at how the university can “better meet its responsibility to ensure that all students, faculty, staff, and visitors are respected and safe.”

How can they feel respected and safe when at any moment the goofy statue might have sprung to life, shouting the unspeakable N-word and brandishing a rope?

Mason also shared plans to move quickly in forming a committee of students and community members to advise her on options for strengthening cultural competency training and reviewing implicit bias training.

You know what that means:

clockwork-orange-brainwashing

The professor responsible — who explicitly intended the statue as a means to rub America’s nose in the muck of neurotic race guilt in accordance with liberal ideology — has been forced by the comical obtuseness of certain students to issue an apology.

“I sincerely apologize for the pain and suffering I caused to the African American community on Friday,” he said. “I am hoping that I will be able to be forgiven for the pain I have caused with my sculpture.”

He isn’t the only one groveling before the mob:

Nic Arp, director of strategic communications for the college, removed those initial social media posts [that promoted the statue] and issued an apology for promoting the art…

“I very sincerely apologize for my insensitivity and for contributing to people’s very real and understandable pain,” Arp wrote on Twitter. “I have learned a lot about how my own privilege and culture bias informed my own initial reaction to it.”

Born Gay Dogma and the Freedom to Recognize Factual Reality

Is there still room for scientific reality in a society thoroughly dominated by leftist ideology? We’ll know the answer is no if militant deviants are able to shut down a billboard in Richmond pointing out that no one is born homosexual:

Paid for by Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays — an organization aimed at helping so-called “ex-gays” gain acceptance — the ad features a picture of male twins and reads, “Identical twins. One gay. One not. We believe twins research studies show nobody is born gay.”

Liberals know perfectly well that orienting your identity around indulging in unnatural and exceedingly unhealthy sexual inclinations is not a matter of immutable biological fate, or they would not go to such trouble to recruit homosexuals by glamorizing perversion in the schools and media they control. For Democrats, this is a way of converting white people into members of a reliably supportive voting bloc. You can’t turn whites into blacks, but if you start when they are young you can turn them into gays — some of them, anyway.

“Identical twins have the same genes or DNA. They are nurtured in equal prenatal conditions. If homosexuality is caused by genetics or prenatal conditions and one twin is gay, the co-twin should also be gay,” [Regina Griggs, executive director of PFOX] said, according to WVUE-TV. “Because identical twins are always genetically identical, homosexuality cannot be genetically dictated. No one is born gay.”

Technically speaking, identical twins are not really genetically identical. But they come close enough to make a powerful argument that our sexual behavior is a matter of choice.

Griggs went on in her statement to say that “change is possible” and that people deserve to know the truth about same-sex attraction, claiming that her organization seeks to help people “seeking positive life change.”

The characteristically thuggish and irrational response from the left:

[T]he leader of Rosby, a group that offers resources to gay youths, said that the billboard is simply unacceptable in the modern era.

“I am shocked and really disappointed that at the end of 2014, we have a billboard in the middle of our city that says that kind of hate,” Beth Panilaitis, the organization’s executive director, told WVUE-TV.

In other words, shut up or we will hit you with the “hate” club.

If Griggs et al. hate anything, it is the sin, not the sinner. Their mission is not to hurt people but to help them. But that is irrelevant, because like “racist,” “hate” is no longer a word; it is a cudgel. If it were still a word, it would convey meaning.

If they can use their “hate” weapon to shut down Parents and Friends, what is to stop them from using it to ban the Bible?

Disability: It’s Not Just for the Disabled Anymore

How is Obama able to keep the official unemployment rate relatively low, even while inflicting crippling damage on the economy that steadily drives down the labor participation rate? Here’s how:

How much is the Social Security Disability program cutting into workforce participation? That’s a question examined in a piece from Moody’s Analytics, asking whether disability benefits are driving Americans away from seeking employment.

There are 237,000 Alabamians on federal disability, more than 6 percent of the population. …

Nationwide, nearly 10 million Americans, or about 3 percent of the population, are enrolled in the Social Security disability program.

The Moody’s piece mentions that a growing percentage of prime-aged workers are reporting that they aren’t in the labor force because of disability.

But while the amount of money in benefits being paid out increases, there does not appear to be a rise in the frequency of medical conditions that would explain its growth.

What explains the growth is that under liberal rule, it is ever easier to claim disability, and ever harder to find a job.

This exceedingly morbid trend will continue until either liberalism is overthrown, or America dies of it.
