Assaulted by Occucommies for Objecting to Black on White Violence

Voicing disapproval of the black on white violence that is rampant in South Africa is a hazardous undertaking in Obamaland. Even being a cop defending our right to express such speech is dangerous; at least two were injured yesterday by Occupy Oakland Brownshirts:

The clash erupted in the afternoon as California Highway Patrol and Sacramento city police officers were escorting about 35 members of the South Africa Project to a parking garage following their protest outside the Capitol building.

About 50 members of Occupy Oakland began throwing cans and bottles at the South Africa group and at the officers. The Occupy members then rushed the officers as people with the pro-whites group rushed into the parking garage.

A city police officer was injured when a member of the Occupy group jumped on him, and a CHP officer was hurt after being struck by an object. Both were taken from the scene by ambulance.

This happened a block away from the state Capitol. It’s like watching wolves close in around a dwindling campfire.

Earlier, a teenage girl was detained outside the Capitol after police separated Occupy protesters from the group opposing black-on-white violence in South Africa.

The girl with Occupy Oakland was taken to Juvenile Hall after she became combative and assaulted an officer who asked her to pick up litter, California Highway Patrol Officer Sean Kennedy said.

The original Brownshirts would have reacted the same way if you complained about violence against Jews during Hitler’s rise to power; the only difference would be that the Brownshirts wouldn’t themselves be mostly Jewish, as Occucommies are mostly white. Leftism isn’t only evil; it is insane.

Obama Stabs Military in the Back Once Again

In case groveling apologies to the Islamic savages who assassinate officers aren’t enough to destroy the Armed Forces’ morale, Barack Hussein is trying this:

The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. …

The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention.

The increases are steep:

According to congressional assessments, a retired Army colonel with a family currently paying $460 a year for health care will pay $2,048.

An added benefit, beyond breaking spirits by showing that their own government is not behind them, is that it will drive servicemen into the arms of ObamaCare.

Administration officials told Congress that one goal of the increased fees is to force military retirees to reduce their involvement in Tricare and eventually opt out of the program in favor of alternatives established by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.

If you’re in a group favored by Obama, there’s no need to worry.

[L]eaving civilian workers’ benefits unchanged while hitting the military reflect the administration’s effort to court labor unions, as government unions are the only segment of organized labor that has increased in recent years.

The “loathing” Demorrhoids have for the military has been common knowledge at least since the Clinton Administration. A vote for them is a vote to knife a soldier in the back on behalf of some useless overpaid parasite growing fatter and softer behind a desk in Washington.

Not friendly to American heroes.

Xena the Warrior Princess Attacks Our Oil Supply

The aptly named Lucy Lawless, formerly known as Xena the Warrior Princess, is like many Hollyweird has-beens a shrill and mindless moonbat. In a childish and desperate bid for attention, she is participating in an absurd guerilla war against oil, the lifeblood of our economy.

Actress-turned-eco-warrior Lucy Lawless has been arrested with five Greenpeace activists after the group spent four days protesting aboard an oil-drilling ship docked in New Zealand.

Police on Monday removed the group from their perch atop a 174ft drilling tower on the Noble Discoverer in Port Taranaki.

Xena didn’t always hate oil. When her career was in front instead of behind her, she did an ad for Shell, the same company that is helping make her limousine liberal lifestyle possible by chartering the ship she and the other moonbats illegally infested.

Xena in better days.

Bradley Manning Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Let’s see, how could moonbats make an even more contemptible farce out of the Nobel Peace Prize? They’ve already given it to a con man, a communist dictator, a pervert terrorist, a neophyte Affirmative Action post turtle, and useless bureauweenies who facilitate nuclear proliferation. How about a traitor? Been there, done that — but not a noisily homosexual traitor who is currently incarcerated at Leavenworth for his crimes against the USA:

[O]n the list [of this year’s Peace Prize nominees] is jailed US soldier Manning, who has been charged with 22 counts in a US military court for turning over a massive cache of classified US documents to anti-secrecy site WikiLeaks.

At this point I would rather have a felony conviction on my record than a Nobel Peace Prize.

Payoff for Obama’s Islamic Appeasement Policy

Now that we’ve appeased the Islamic world by electing a guy with a Muslim background and sympathies who devoted himself from the beginning of his presidency to apologizing to Muslims on behalf of America, the USA is getting the respect it deserves in Pakistan, which receives $billions in free money courtesy of American taxpayers:


If we want to go back to deserving the respect we did in the past, the first step will be to pry the likes of Barack Hussein out of power.

Fundassador Nicole Avant

By serving as US Ambassador to the Bahamas, Hollyweird fundraiser Nicole Avant represents the face we present to the world now that we have proven how historic we are by putting an adolescent in the White House:

Candidate Barack Obama promised to end the time-honored American practice of appointing ambassadors who have no experience in foreign policy, but President Obama has completely ignored that promise, appointing fundraisers to dozens of ambassadorships all over the world.

[Last week] the State Department revealed that another fundraiser turned ambassador ran her embassy into the ground … only to return to fundraising and leave the State Department to pick up the pieces.

According to a new State Department inspector general’s report on the U.S. Embassy in the Bahamas, Ambassador Nicole Avant presided over “an extended period of dysfunctional leadership and mismanagement, which has caused problems throughout the embassy” since she was appointed by the president in 2009. Prior to being America’s envoy in the Caribbean, Avant was Southern California finance co-chairwoman of Obama’s presidential campaign and vice president of Interior Music Publishing. …

Avant was absent from the embassy 276 days between September 2009 and November 2011, including 102 “personal” days and 77 “work travel” days to the United States, of which only 23 were on official orders.

Maybe she was playing golf with Obama.

Even after her disgraceful appointment caused enough of a mess to force her resignation, Ms. Avant continues to live the liberal elite high life:

A Feb. 15 pool report spotted her dining with Obama at a $35,800 per plate dinner that included George Clooney, Jim Belushi, and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa.

Meanwhile, the USA crumbles both at home and abroad.

Remember when we were told that W brought America into ill repute in the eyes of the rest of the world? Good thing B. Hussein fixed that.

As the FLOTUS might screech, this ain’t right.

Mellifluously Obysmal


B. Hussein mellifluously stroked our egos by informing us that we aren’t stupid enough to believe that we could reduce soaring gas prices by lifting his senseless restrictions on oil drilling. However, at least one alleged American appears to be stupid enough to believe that farcical green energy boondoggles will provide 80% of our energy by 2035.

Occucommies Target Private Home

Christians have Jesus; liberals have Saul Alinsky, who homilized, “Pick a target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” The imposition of socialism involves picking targets at banks, as when Occucommies targeted the San Francisco home of Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf as part of their campaign against property rights on Saturday.

The lame exercise in street theater entailed pretending to foreclose on Stumpf’s home, to punish him for working at a bank that forecloses on the homes of those who do not live up to their contractual obligations, as any bank will have to do that wants to stay in business. However, in utopia, no one is expected to pay any bills because everything is free, provided by the slave labor of saps willing to work for the benefit of parasites.

Zombie provides excellent coverage of the farce. Here’s a shot from her report that gives an inkling of how profoundly the 99%ers have divorced themselves from reality:


Back on Planet Earth, the top 10% of earners pay 70% of federal taxes. The bottom half are freeloaders who don’t pay any federal taxes at all. However, so long as there is enough freedom left for one person to earn more than another, taxes on “the rich” will never be high enough to satisfy moonbats.

Life in a Dhimmi Police State

Britain doesn’t even have a Muslim majority yet, but due to the eager complicity of the liberal dhimmis in charge, this is how intolerable the once great country has already become for non-Muslims who cherish liberty:

As David Jones arrived at the security gates at Gatwick airport, he was looking forward to getting through swiftly so he could enjoy lunch with his daughters before their flight.

Placing his belongings, including a scarf, into a tray to pass through the X-ray scanner he spotted a Muslim woman in hijab pass through the area without showing her face.

In a light-hearted aside to a security official who had been assisting him, he said: “If I was wearing this scarf over my face, I wonder what would happen.”

Big mistake. Jones, creator of the children’s character Fireman Sam, spent the next hour being terrorized by airport and law enforcement officials for having committed a thought crime.

Jones reports on his interrogation:

“I again stated that I had not made a racist remark but purely an observation that we were in a maximum security situation being searched thoroughly whilst a woman with her face covered walked through. I made no reference to race or religion.”

However, from the point of view of our progressive rulers, anything involving any Muslim implicitly involves religion and even race. Jones continues:

“I felt that I made a logical observation. That while everyone was being subjected to an invasive search it was illogical that someone should be let through with their face covered. I am not opposed to having this level of security but it must be equal for all.”

The idea that an infidel should have equality under the law with Muslims in a country run by liberals is not only absurd but literally becoming impermissible to express.

Jones was told he could continue on his way if he would apologize for his imaginary affront to Islam. All you have to do is bow down and kiss the ring of political correctness, and they’ll let you go back to pretending you’re free.

To his credit, Jones refused to apologize. Unfortunately he eventually agreed to the compromise of acknowledging that his remark “could” be considered offensive to a Muslim so that they would finally let him go.

Muslims boast that they will achieve a majority in the UK in 20 years. It may take a little longer, but thanks to policies designed to displace Britain’s native population, it will happen in the foreseeable future. At that point, people like Jones will not be humiliated and harassed, but tortured and killed.

In the meantime, anyone who consents to living under liberals without putting up some kind of fight has no claim to dignity.

Fireman Sam standing by a dog also could be offensive to Muslims.

Pro-Abortion Politician Calls for Criminalizing Vasectomies

As if ignorant of the fundamentals of human reproduction, a Georgia House Rep is responding to limitations on late-term abortions with the proposed criminalization of vasectomies:

Rep. Yasmin Neal, a Democrat from the Atlanta suburb of Jonesboro, planned on Wednesday to introduce HB 1116, which would prevent men from vasectomies unless needed to avert serious injury or death. …

“If we legislate women’s bodies, it’s only fair that we legislate men’s,” said Neal, who said she wanted to write bill that would generate emotion and conversation the way anti-abortion bills do.

In other words, the bill is a cross between a bad joke and a publicity stunt promoting abortion, put forward as political theater of the absurd.

The anti-vasectomy bill was a response to a bill that would punish abortions performed after the 20th week of pregnancy with prison sentences between one and 10 years.

Even Ms. Neal is bright enough to grasp the difference between contraceptive measures and killing a child 20 weeks after conception. Her tasteless ploy sheds light on a key Democrat strategy: obscure this difference in the minds of voters. This allows them both to paint Republicans as lifestyle-cramping extremists, and to further normalize the practice of killing inconvenient children.

Yasmin Neal wants to ban vasectomies.

Stool Sample Required to Open Business in Greece

In ancient Greece, those who wanted to know the future consulted the Oracle at Delphi. Nowadays the whole country is an oracle for Americans who want to know our future if we don’t wrest control of the government from liberals. If you think bureaurats make it hard to open a business here now, wait until they are done turning the USA into Greece:

It took 10 months, a fat bundle of paperwork, countless certificates, long hours of haggling with bureaucrats and overcoming myriad other inconceivable obstacles for one group of young entrepreneurs to open an online store. …

“An online store is more complicated than a regular store basically because of the way payments are carried out,” explained Fotis Antonopoulos, one of the co-founders of, which sells olive oil-based products such as cosmetics, mostly to foreign markets.

“Most stores begin operating after receiving only the approval regarding their brand name, as the bureaucracy involved takes such a long time to complete that it is simply impossible to keep up with the operational costs, such as paying rent on obligatory headquarters, without making any sales,” said Antonopoulos.

Antonopoulos and his partners spent hours collecting papers from tax offices, the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the municipal service where the company is based, the health inspector’s office, the fire department and banks. At the health department, they were told that all the shareholders of the company would have to provide chest X-rays, and, in the most surreal demand of all, stool samples.

There is one difference between Greece and the USSA of the near future: after we’re done making it impossible to create wealth, we won’t have anyone to bail us out.

Now the whole country lets us see the future.

Slimes Doesn’t Need to Look Far Afield for Bigotry

The righteous moonbat crusaders at the New York Times are always on the lookout for bigotry. Conveniently, they can find plenty without leaving their own cozy bubble of liberal elitism, as this tweet from Slimes blowhard Charles M. Blow demonstrates:


The “magic underwear” snipe is a reference to what Mormons call “garments.” These are worn next to the skin under other clothing. Their purpose is to serve “as a constant reminder of the covenants made during the temple endowment” — a concept probably beyond the comprehension of shallow clowns like Blow.

Mormonism is a uniquely American faith, so it is a fit subject for ridicule by our liberal ruling class. Try to imagine one of these weasels making fun of Islam.

By sneering at the concept that single parenthood is a problem, despite its primary role in driving poverty, Blow proves himself to be not only a bigot but a pernicious fool. He has found a suitable home at the NY Times.

Arrested for Daughter’s Drawing of a Gun

In progressive Canada, the utopian masterminds in charge will not only prosecute you for your thoughts, they will arrest you for your 4-year-old daughter’s thoughts:

A father has been arrested, strip-searched and hauled in for questioning — all because his four-year-old daughter drew a picture of a gun at school.

“I’m picking up my kids and then, next thing you know, I’m locked up,” Jessie Sansone, 26, told the Waterloo Region Record in Canada. “I was in shock. This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school.”

Sansone, a Kitchener resident, had arrived at Forest Hill public school to pick up his children when he was called to the principal’s office. Three police officers informed him he was being charged with possession of a firearm. Then he was escorted out of the school, handcuffed and locked in the back of a police car.

According to Sansone, he didn’t learn what had caused the investigation until hours after his arrest. Other officers arrived at his home, where they instructed his wife to come to the police station and took his other three children to Family and Children’s Services to be questioned.

After his 4-year-old daughter drew the blasphemous (to moonbats) picture, school, law enforcement, and child welfare authorities used their collective brain power to conclude that there must be a gun in the house. Americans acknowledge owning a firearm to be an expression of our fundamental God-given right to defend ourselves. In Canada, it is seen as a challenge to the omnipotence of The State — or as bureaugoons put it, a threat to children.

In their defense, a bureauweenie mumbled,

“At the point in the investigation when it was determined it was not a real firearm, the individual was released unconditionally.”

This was several hours after his arrest, and after they had terrorized his family and turned their house inside out looking for an imaginary weapon.

It is easier to resist at the beginning than at the end, and it would be better to go down shooting than let liberals rot America into another Canada — as they are well on the way to doing.

$Millions of Our Money Shoveled at Alinskyites Under ObamaCare

You don’t have to be a campaign donor running a phony green energy boondoggle to get showered with other people’s money by the Obama Regime. A connection to the Founding Father of modern American liberalism is also good for a ride on the gravy train:

A Saul Alinsky-tied group has been awarded a $56 million federal loan to start up a nonprofit health insurance company — one of several organizations across the country this week tapped to launch a new network of insurers under the sponsorship of the federal health care overhaul.

The Wisconsin group, Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative, was awarded the funding on Tuesday. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, the group is expected to provide coverage statewide within five years after starting on a smaller scale in early 2014.

But Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson questioned the group’s credentials — given its affiliation and lack of experience in the insurance field.

“The indisputable fact is that Common Ground was an outgrowth of the Alinsky operation in Chicago,” Wilson said. “We’re not giving money to a group with experience in health care issues or in setting up exchanges. … We’re handing the money to people who have been trained by arguably the single most expert individual on community organizing in the last 100 years.”

Alinsky is best know for writing Rules for Radicals, a guide to using underhanded tactics to impose socialism that has become the Bible of the modern Democrat Party. The book is literally dedicated to Lucifer.

Yet again we see that wherever Big Government extends its power, sound decisions dictated by economic reality are replaced with cronyism, favoritism, and corruption. This is one of the fundamental structural defects of socialism that invariably result in a lower standard of living in countries run by collectivists.
