Whichever way the Gay Mafia pushes, the libs running universities are only too happy to move:
College costs are on the rise — having increased at a rate that outpaces inflation for more than two decades, contributing to record levels of student debt. Nevertheless, Duke University saw fit to raise the cost of its program even more. This week Campus Reform reports that Duke has raised student fees in order to pay for sex change operations for any student who wants one.
LGBT advocates are reportedly delighted.
“Reassignment surgery” — entailing procedures that would give Josef Mengele nightmares — will be covered up to $50,000 by other Duke students.
While the ultimate purpose of encouraging the mentally ill to surgically deform their bodies to match their twisted minds remains unclear, the immediate objective is obvious — to create more people who look like this.

Hopefully this doesn’t actually surprise anyone, phony eat-the-rich rhetoric notwithstanding:
The [Economist/YouGov] poll found that fewer than half of those with incomes less than $100,000 per year approve of Obama’s performance, while he enjoys a 54 percent approval rating among those with incomes higher than that.
Those earning less than $40,000 a year disapprove of the president’s performance, 51 percent to 45 percent. Those earning $40,000 to $100,000 disapprove by a rate of 50 percent to 48 percent.
Given responsible media coverage, Obama’s approval numbers among the middle and lower classes would be dramatically reduced. But his popularity among fellow millionaires would remain unchanged. The well-to-do can afford moonbattery; the rest of us can’t.
The ultra-rich have good reason to approval of Obama. Like its sibling fascism, liberalism is a type of oligarchical collectivism. If you can afford a seat at Big Government’s table, you are part of the oligarchy, and all is well.
If you can’t afford a seat at the table, you are on the menu.

The libs running the “mainstream” media are constantly searching — usually in vain — for racism. They should try looking closer to home:
A casting call for a new host of a children’s program on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the taxpayer supported, government-owned television and radio network of Canada, accidentally told the truth, when it specified “any race except Caucasian.” See for yourself:
When the progressives get their way, and whites are an economically if not literally enslaved minority in North America, we will look back and ask ourselves why we put up with this even when we were in a position to stop it.

Having voted more than once for John McCain (although certainly never in a primary), I will never be clean again.
A constellation of intellectual heavyweights showed up at the University of Southern California on Tuesday to discuss the issues surrounding immigration reform. That stars in that constellation included former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and former presidential candidate Senator John McCain (R-AZ). All three agreed that immediate immigration reform legislation should be passed, without substantial additions to border security.
That the consequences of this would be devastating for the United States economically, politically, socially, and in terms of national security and rule of law is obvious to anyone who has followed the issue.
You can’t expect anything else from Villaraigosa, considering that this militant anti-American radical is a former chapter head of MEChA, an organization devoted to driving all non-Hispanics out of the southwest third of the United States. The treason of the other two is beyond comprehension.
As always, the odious John “Lettuce” McCain was particularly vicious toward the conservatives that he has made a career of betraying on behalf of the leftists he obsequiously serves.
McCain led the way, slandering members of his own party in the House as unsympathetic toward immigrants. He said they needed to get in touch with their “better angels” on illegal immigration, and then suggested that if they couldn’t get in touch with their humanity, they ought to get in touch with their “baser instincts,” which would tell them that they ought to embrace immigration reform in order to pander to Hispanic voters.
Anyone remember how after his amnesty collaboration with Chappaquiddick Ted Kennedy went down in flames, McCain humbly assured us he had learned his lesson? Characteristically, he was lying.
If only voters would learn this lesson: no matter how awful their opponents, we have got to stop electing back-stabbing quislings like McCain.

Michael Bloomberg’s authoritarian jihad against the right to bear arms has lurched so far into self-parody, a tourist shop has been fined $60,000 for selling cigarette lighters shaped like tiny pistols:
“We don’t have the money,” said Fred Shayes, 49, who owns US Camera & Computer Inc. near Penn Station. “I would have to take a loan out from the bank to pay that.”
But as Shrillary memorably pointed out, our rulers don’t concern themselves with the plight of undercapitalized businesses.
Under city law, toy guns can’t be sold in the city unless they are bright green, blue, red or a neon color.
It’s not a toy, you say? It’s a lighter? Quiet. Lighters facilitate smoking; Bloomberg might double the fine.
Inspectors for the Bloomberg Regime assert that the lighters could be confused with real handguns, as if that justified banning them. Judge for yourself:
After the thugs appeared at his shop, Shayes pulled the lighters off the shelf immediately and returned them to the manufacturer. Not good enough. Maintaining a bloated obscenity the size of New York City’s government costs money. This may be the reason officials shake down business owners over trifles rather than address crime.
Shayes may have to go out of business because of the fine. The Mafia would have left him with enough to keep the doors open, so they could shake him down again in the future. But our statist rulers are not as forward-thinking or responsible as the Mafia. They assume there will always be someone else to loot and destroy.

Not surprisingly — considering that rabid anti-Christian bigot Mikey Weinstein has been called in to assist — the well-documented campaign by the Obama Regime to drive Christians out of the military has gone into high gear. You can now be court-martialled for putting in a good word for your faith:
The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: “Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense… Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis…”.
Being convicted in a court martial means that a soldier has committed a crime under federal military law. Punishment for a court martial can include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.
So President Barack Obama’s civilian appointees who lead the Pentagon are confirming that the military will make it a crime — possibly resulting in imprisonment — for those in uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains — military officers who are ordained clergymen of their faith (mostly Christian pastors or priests, or Jewish rabbis) — whose duty since the founding of the U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their faith and minister to the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or comfort.
America is getting fundamentally transformed, as promised. Without even putting up a fight — yet.
If it was ever possible to be both a Christian and a supporter of the Obama Regime, it certainly isn’t now.

Yet another one:
A well-known female liberal blogger and radio host at the University of Wyoming (UW) is being accused by police of fabricating a rape threat against herself to appear as if it came from a conservative.
The obscene message directed at activist Meg Lanker-Simons was posted on a college “crush” Facebook page earlier this week and immediately ignited outrage from the college community.
“I want to hate f**k Meg Lanker-Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it,” it read. “I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican bitch,” the post reads, according to a screenshot.
She wrote the post herself, then apparently escalated her illegitimate attempt at self-promotion all the way to the local police.
But on Monday, The University of Wyoming Police Department issued a citation to Lanker-Simons for “interference” for “false statements she made to the UW Police Department,” according to a UW statement referred to by Laramie Boomerang Online.
“Subject admitted to making a controversial post on UW Crushes webpage and then lied about not doing it,” according to the citation.
Lanker-Simons’s credentials as a moonbat are impressive:
According to a Facebook page that apparently belongs to Lanker-Simons she is a member of the University of Wyoming Gender & Women’s Studies group as well as the school’s chapter of The Nonviolent Communist. …
Lanker-Simons was in the news in 2010 when she was a plaintiff in a successful lawsuit against UW after it retracted its invitation to have Bill Ayers speak on campus.
Bill Ayers is of course the unreconstructed communist terrorist who mentored and launched the political career of the left-wing radical the media has installed in the Oval Office.
Ms. Wanker-Simons can now join the long list of liberal hate hoaxers that includes among others:
• Olander Cuthrell
• Charlie Rogers
• Sharmeka Moffitt
• Joseph Baken
• Alexandra Pennell
• Aimee Whitchurch and Christel Conklin
• Quinn Matney
• Aubriana Banks
• Sarah Marshak
• Tawana Brawley
• Crystal Gail Mangum
• Kerri Dunn
• Leah Miller
• Ahmad Saad Nasim
Hate hoaxes must work, since libs fall back on them so frequently. Maybe for every one that is debunked, many others are passed off as actual hate crimes. But that seems unlikely, since most hate crimes that prove genuine are directed against whites for being white or Jews for being Jews, with neither group having any need to fake hate crimes, which will be ignored by the national media anyway.
Here’s another possibility: given that they are liberals and live in an alternate reality consisting entirely of toxic ideology, it doesn’t matter to them whether the hate crimes are revealed as hoaxes or not. After all, each is symbolically true, in accordance with moonbat dogma. In support of this theory:
Since police cited her, supporters have a constructed a Facebook page entitled “Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent.”
“Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent we believe what she did was justified and deserves not to be held accountable for her accusations we stand behind you sister,” reads that page’s description.
“What she did was justified” would seem to mean, “it’s okay that you are lying; we believe you anyway.” This illustrates why you are wasting your breath to argue with a liberal.

Soda manufacturers are advised not to have rappers create their TV commercials. Here’s why:
In the 60-second spot developed by African-American rapper Tyler, The Creator, a battered white woman on crutches is urged by an officer to identify a suspect out of a lineup of black men. A goat character known as Felicia is included in the lineup.
The goat makes threatening remarks to the woman such as “Ya better not snitch on a player” and “Keep ya mouth shut.” She eventually screams “I can’t do this, no no no!” and runs away.
The word “do” is in apparent reference to the soft drink’s “Dew It” slogan. …
Mountain Dew, known for its neon yellow color and higher caffeine content, is marketed toward younger men.
Eventually, our culture will decay to the point that people will agree with PepsiCo suits that such an ad helps promote their product.

If you think the situation is bad now regarding unlawful immigrants — i.e., hostile invaders — collecting lavish welfare benefits at the expense of the people whose country they are stealing, just wait until the Democrat–RINO axis rams through amnesty:
The immigration bill introduced to the Senate a week and a half ago would, if passed, allow illegal immigrants to access state and local welfare benefits immediately, Breitbart News has learned. The financial impact of allowing potentially millions of immigrants onto state and local public assistance could overwhelm these programs’ budgets. …
“The Gang of Eight made a promise that illegal immigrants will not be able to access public benefits,” [Senator Jeff] Sessions [R-AL] said in a statement to Breitbart News. “We already know that, once granted green cards and ultimately citizenship, illegal immigrants will be able to access all public benefit programs at a great cost to taxpayers. We have, however, identified a number of loopholes that would allow illegal immigrants to draw public benefits even sooner than advertised.”
Illegal immigrants would eligible for Registered Provisional Immigrant (RPI) status immediately.
Sessions’ staff notes that current illegal immigrants who are “granted RPI status will immediately become eligible for federal benefits through citizen and permanent resident dependents, with no requirement that they support their household as a condition of receiving or maintaining legal status.” That means any current illegal immigrant who subsequently has dependent children, who are, by right of birth, U.S. citizens would qualify for federal welfare benefits through them.
That’s how bureaucrats solve the problem of welfare colonists illegally scamming the system for $billions. Wave a wand and make it legal. The entire Third World will be on notice: come loot now before America collapses.
