CNN Reporter Body-Slammed by Charlotte Thug on Air

The progressives who run everything used welfare policy to create a massive underclass of uncivilized brutes whose only social purpose is to vote for Democrats. Now they use their control of the media to hype bogus grievances, and to excuse any behavior by this underclass, no matter how sociopathic. To the extent that by working for CNN, reporter Ed Lavandera is a member of the ruling elite, social justice has been answered with a small taste of poetic justice:

Lavandera was assaulted by an aggressive protester while he was reporting live Wednesday night from Charlotte, the epicenter of violent Black Lives Matter demonstrations following two police-involved shootings this week.

Lavandera, reporting back to network host Anderson Cooper, was detailing the riotous events unfolding in downtown Charlotte when a man, appearing to be a protester, rushed the correspondent, instantly forcing him to the ground.

Apparently he wasn’t hurt. If only we could say the same for the police officers who have been injured while defending civilization.

Feminist Shrieks That Letting Babies Live Is #1 Cause of Global Warming

Everything leftists don’t like supposedly causes global warming. So it should come as no surprise that the single biggest cause of global warming is letting unborn children live:

Gloria Steinem helped Planned Parenthood launch a $12 million fundraising campaign last week by saying “nothing is more important” than expanding abortion and “forced childbirth is the single biggest cause of global warming.”

“Forced childbirth” is when a woman delivers an unwanted baby.

Glimpses Into the Twilight Future

Robert Gerrard devoted much of his life to history. At the end of it he showed us a glimpse of the future:

A British historian who spent almost 20 years working as a tour guide in South Africa specialising in the Anglo-Zulu war has died after a savage beating by armed robbers at his home.

Robert Gerrard trained under David Rattray, the most celebrated historical storyteller in the region and a close friend of the Prince of Wales.

Mr Gerrard later became the resident tour guide at Isandlwana Lodge in KawZulu-Natal, with his home overlooking the hillside where one of the region’s most famous battles took place.

Both men met the same fate: Mr Rattray was gunned down in his home by armed intruders in 2007, while Mr Gerrard was tortured and left unable to walk after armed men burst into his cottage in February this year.

The Royal Geographical Society Fellow and former British army officer died last week following complications from the multiple injuries he sustained, including brain damage, a shattered pelvis and severe burns, his family said on Tuesday.

His sister, Sally Gerrard Fox, relates what happened to Mr. Gerrard when he arrived home one evening:

“They beat the living hell out of him, smashed his head into the floor, tied him up, poured boiling water over him, fractured his pelvis in seven places.”

They also broke his finger in the process of stealing a signet ring.

“Afterwards, he was shattered not only that this had happened but the brutality behind what happened, the lack of clear reason for it.”

Although the identity of the attackers will never be known, this having taken place in the social justice utopia of South Africa, it is likely that anyone with a PhD in Victim Studies could expound righteously at great length on the reason for the savagery.

Robert Gerrard was 74 years old.

The future is also unfolding closer to home. Here is what happened when what appears to be a pack of “protesters” came upon a lone Caucasian in a Charlotte parking garage:

Let this be a reminder that anyone who tries to disarm you is trying to kill you.

White House–Pentagon Divide Is Bad and Won’t Be Getting Better Soon

One symptom of a country in decline is a widening rift between civilian leadership and the military. In the USA’s case, this has been caused by our recent inability to select a decent president.

As the four armed forces chiefs testified in the Senate about the national security dangers of mandated budget caps, Sen. Lindsey Graham asked each officer if he had discussed the readiness crisis with President Obama.

Their unanimous answers before the Senate Armed Services Committee last week underscored a key aspect of the Obama presidency, noted by his own past defense secretaries and, in a recent disclosure, a former NATO commander: The president maintains a wary approach in dealing with the four-star generals and admirals who direct his wars.

That is to say, Obama openly dislikes and distrusts them.

Robert M. Gates, Mr. Obama’s first defense secretary, wrote in his memoirs that Mr. Obama deeply distrusts senior military leaders and suspects them of conspiring against him. He recalled one meeting in which the president resorted to a clipped “That’s an order” to the top brass.

“That order was unnecessary and insulting, proof positive of the depth of the Obama White House distrust of the nation’s military leadership,” a “shocked” Mr. Gates wrote.

“The controlling nature of the Obama White House and the staff took micromanagement and operational meddling to a new level,” he said in his memoir, “Duty.”

Those top officers who will not subordinate winning wars to Obama’s loony-left ideology are removed. Army General Stanley McChrystal, former top commander in Afghanistan, was fired for publicly disagreeing with Obama’s failed strategy. Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, was fired for insisting that we acknowledge the obvious connection between Islamic terror and Islam. Four-star Marine Corps General James Mattis, former commander of United States Central Command, was pushed out for being anti-Iran while Obama was pushing his alarming nuclear deal:

An Aug. 10 report by a joint House panel on CentCom intelligence-skewing said Gen. Mattis “was forced to depart abruptly in early 2013.”

“The leadership environment within CENTCOM and its Intelligence Directorate deteriorated significantly following the 2013 departure of Marine General James Mattis and his senior intelligence leaders,” the report said.

The situation will not improve under President Shrillary:

As a senator in 2007, Mrs. Clinton famously ridiculed the testimony on the Iraq troop surge from Army Gen. David Petraeus.

“You have been made the de facto spokesman for what many of us believe to be a failed policy,” Mrs. Clinton said. “Despite what I view as your rather extraordinary efforts in your testimony both yesterday and today, I think that the reports that you provide to us really require a willing suspension of disbelief.”

Despite Shrillary publicly calling Petraeus a liar, the troop surge worked, winning the war. But then Obama took power and prematurely withdrew US troops. Iraq predictably collapsed and the Islamic State moved in.

Nor will the situation improve under Trump (who sided noisily with Code Pink during the Iraq War, demanding W’s impeachment). Gates, a respected, nonpartisan figure who served in both Republican and Democrat administrations, wrote an op-ed critical of both Shrillary and the Donald. Even-handedness will not do among Trump and his supporters; either you are behind Trump 100% on everything or you are an enemy to be bullied into submission or publicly ridiculed. Trump’s response to Gates:

“We had a clown today, an absolute clown. Robert Gates — he’s supposed to be an expert; he’s been there forever,” Trump said.

“Never met the guy, never saw him. I saw him on television, didn’t like him. The end result is look where we are. He’s a mess, OK? He’s a mess, so he goes out and he says negative things about me. I never met him; I never talked to him. Believe me, I am so much better at what he’s doing than he is, you won’t even believe it.”

Yeah right. Terrifyingly, Trump may actually believe that his experience at bankrupting casinos and hamming it up on a reality show qualifies him to make crucial military decisions.

Trump also called Gates “dopey,” “stupid,” “incompetent,” and still more ironically, “a nasty guy.” At least he didn’t accuse Gates of having silly-looking hair and orange skin.

As would have been obvious to virtually everyone only a year ago, it is not only inadvisable to make someone who would behave like this the Commander in Chief — it is completely unacceptable.

Any serious adults who are not purged from the Pentagon for suspicion of disloyalty will not enjoy working with a petulant, unbalanced child like Trump.

For 8 years the military has suffered under our country’s abysmal leadership. It has at least 4 years to go.

Venezuela Now Puts Newborns in Cardboard Boxes Instead of Incubators

“What about the children?” the moonbats bleat. “If Big Government doesn’t take care of everyone, the children might suffer!” Here is what happens to them when Big Government does take care of everyone, suffocating the private sector:

The economic crisis in Venezuela is now so bad that doctors are using cardboard boxes instead of incubators to keep newborn babies.

The upside is that this streamlines burials, since the infant mortality rate has gotten 100 times worse over the past 4 years at Venezuelan public hospitals, and Venezuelans have been reduced to burying their dead in cardboard boxes.

Incubators aren’t the only thing in short supply:

According to the Pharmaceutical Federation, the shortage of medicines is more than 80 percent and around 13,000 doctors, more than 20 percent of the medical staff in the country, have emigrated in the last four years because of the crisis in their sector and because of low salaries.

Meanwhile, Americans will soon go to the polls to choose between two presidential candidates who favor socialized medicine. Venezuela is our future.

High School Teacher Tramples US Flag in Front of Class

Even now it is still possible for public school teachers to push moonbattery a little too far, a little too fast:

A history teacher in Cumberland County [North Carolina] was placed on paid administrative leave Tuesday after coming under fire for stepping on the U.S. flag as part of a lesson on the First Amendment.

Lee Francis, who teaches at Massey Hill Classical High School, said he is scheduled to meet with Cumberland County Schools system officials Thursday to discuss the incident stemming from a lesson in his American History class.

At least all he did was tread on Old Glory — rather that cut it to ribbons or set it fire:

A Facebook user named Sara Taylor, who said her child has a friend in Francis’ class, posted a photo of Francis’ foot on the flag during the lesson. In a post online, Taylor wrote Francis asked the students for a lighter or scissors. No one had one, she said, which is when Francis put the flag on the floor and “stomped” on it.

Francis says he was trying to make a point about the First Amendment. Unsurprisingly, he has the ACLU in his corner.

Military families will be less supportive. Fort Bragg is nearby.

Trampling on the American flag is a class 2 misdemeanor in North Carolina.

As you might expect, the teacher’s moonbattery is not limited to flag desecration:

In October, Francis filed to challenge state Rep. Elmer Floyd of Fayetteville in the Democratic primary. He called for a “revolution” in the education system to give power back to teachers. He also said he wanted affordable health care for all and believed in homeless rights, voting rights, a higher minimum wage and supporting women and gay rights.

I wonder how the USA comes out looking in the version of history Francis’s students learn.

Richard Trumka Pleads With Other Moonbats to Allow Dakota Access Pipeline to Create Jobs

As with the Keystone XL Pipeline that liberals killed for ideological reasons, the Dakota Access Pipeline would create thousands of jobs. This has created conflict between 100% moonbats (e.g., Jill Stein) and those whose objectives are not entirely pernicious:

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka announced his support for the Dakota Access Pipeline, a proposed 1,200-mile project capable of transporting nearly 500,000 barrels of crude oil daily from North Dakota to Illinois. Trumka said that union workers and the region will benefit from the 4,500 jobs the project is expected to create and touted the safety and efficiency of pipeline transportation of crude oil.

But as a rule, moonbats detest oil, which is the lifeblood of our economy and enables our standard of living.

The Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), a member group of the AFL-CIO with more than 20 chapters nationwide, joined a coalition of minority union workers to oppose the project. The Labor Coalition for Community Action, composed of the APALA, the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, the Coalition of Labor Union Women, the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement, among others, said that the union must stand in solidarity with minority communities, rather than “corporate greed.”

“Corporate greed” is Liberalese for “economically productive activity.”

By the standards of the rest of the moonbats running things, Trumka is a voice of sanity:

“Trying to make climate policy by attacking individual construction projects is neither effective nor fair to the workers involved. The AFL-CIO calls on the Obama Administration to allow construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline to continue.”

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals issued an emergency injunction halting work on the pipeline, which allegedly oppresses Indians by passing near a reservation and threatening to disturb some cairns.

As they consolidate power, it becomes doubtful that lunatic leftists will allow any major construction projects for much longer. If Trumka is forward-looking, he will find a way to unionize welfare recipients, because workers will be in short supply.

California Moves to Regulate Cow Flatulence

We know totalitarianism is tightening like a garrote because virtually everything is regulated by the authorities, no matter how comically trivial — even including cow flatulence:

California Gov. Jerry Brown kept up his assault on climate change Monday, pushing through a law meant to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from dairy farms and landfills. …

Brown’s approval of Senate Bill 1383 goes after short-lived climate pollutants, which include methane, black carbon, and HFC gases, per the AP.

“Short-lived” means these so-called “climate pollutants” remain in the atmosphere only briefly. Yet we are asked to believe that they will melt ice caps or have some other catastrophic effect if bureaucrats don’t exploit them as a pretext to extend their power into every nook and cranny of existence.

Per the bill, dairy farmers have to cut methane emissions to 40 percent below 2013 levels by 2030. Under a cap-and-trade plan, farmers will receive aid from the $50 million or so raised via polluter fees, which they can then put toward machinery that uses methane to create energy they can in turn sell to electric companies.

If this made any sense economically, the government would not have to put a gun to people’s heads and force them to do it. That’s why capitalism works and tyranny does not.

The state’s Air Resources Board can also now regulate bovine flatulence, as long as there are practical ways to reduce the cows’ belching and breaking wind.

Maybe this would work:

Navy Undergoes Transgender Policy Training

While the expansion-minded tyrants running Russia and China eye the leadership vacuum and flex their muscles, here is how the US Navy spends its time under Commander in Chief Obama:

As the Pentagon makes changes to allow transgender service members to serve openly, the Navy is holding training to educate all troops on the new policies.

In an all-Navy message published Tuesday, Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Robert Burke said a three-pronged training approach will equip senior leaders and rank-and-file personnel for the changes.

“This training will emphasize policies and expectations of personal behavior,” the message states.

Beginning Nov. 1, mobile training teams composed of Navy fleet representatives and subject matter expects will be dispatched to deliver face-to-face briefs to senior leaders, including commanding officers, executive officers, command master chiefs, and chiefs of boat.

These sessions will also be open to equal opportunity advisers, ombudsmen and other command-designated representatives who will have a role in training the tenant commands on policies governing transgender troops.

Equal opportunity in this context means that sailors will advance more quickly through the ranks if they dress up in women’s clothes, in keeping with our fundamentally transformed military priorities.

Google Revealed as Racist

It has been revealed that Google is racist. But don’t worry, the company is racist in favor of blacks at the expense of whites, as required by political correctness:

A Google search for prominent Americans in various fields reveals disproportional results favoring black Americans.

Take “American inventors” for example.

Lonnie Johnson, inventor of the Super Soaker, is listed ahead of Nikola Tesla, you have to scroll to the page row of results to find the inventor of the Alternating Current. The same trend is even more noticeable when one searches for “American artists.” The whole first page of results is black artists.

Affirmative Action isn’t just for hiring, admissions, and promotions anymore. Due to their position as information gatekeepers, liberals can now retroactively impose it on history. How righteous they must feel to take recognition away from the oppressively Caucasian Nikola Tesla and redistribute it to some guy who came up with a new kind of squirt gun.

Again we see that screeching “Islamophobia” is an indispensable tool in any terrorist’s arsenal:

The prime suspect in the New York and New Jersey bombings sued his local police force and claimed they were persecuting him for being a Muslim.

Ahmad Rahami said in a lawsuit that cops in Elizabeth, New Jersey subjected him and his family to discrimination and ‘selective enforcement’ based on their religion.

The police further oppressed the Afghan immigrant by arresting him following a shootout for setting off bombs in New York and New Jersey that injured 29, and that could have killed any number of innocent Americans for the greater glory of Allah.

Gary Johnson Is Glad No One Got Hurt in Most Recent Islamic Terror Attacks

Gary, please. Put the bong down:

“Tell me your reaction to these news stories from the past 24 hours, and what you think the government needs to be doing on a day like today,” CNN anchor Brian Stelter asked.

“Well, first of all, just grateful that nobody got hurt,” [Gary] Johnson answered.

Maybe the recent Islamic outreach in New York, New Jersey, and Minnesota is like Aleppo, and Johnson never heard of it. But no,

Before asking the question, the CNN anchor recapped the weekend’s events — the explosions in New York and New Jersey and the stabbing[s] in Minnesota.

Nobody got hurt?

Twenty-nine people were injured when a bomb exploded in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City, and 10 people were stabbed at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

On second thought, Gary: go back to your bong. Maybe if you smoke enough you will float off into dreamland and stop helping people to associate libertarianism with clueless liberal kooks.

All Libertarians had to do this year was nominate Austin Petersen, and given the competition, they would have had the votes to get into the presidential debates and get their message out. But then, all Republicans had to do was nominate Ted Cruz and they could have put a conservative in the White House — as if the GOP would want a conservative in the White House.
