Elizabeth Warren Is Hurt, Angry, and Stunned to Be Called Out as a Faux Indian

Hilariously, the walking self-parody Elizabeth Warren is doubling down on her phony claim to be part Indian. This multi-culti résumé-enhancer was evidently instrumental in advancing the academic career at Harvard that she used as a stepping stone to the Senate, but appears to have no basis in reality — although the blue-eyed, blonde-haired “Cherokee” did have an ancestor who helped round up real Cherokees for the Trail of Tears. Nonetheless:

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage.

“What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.”

“I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.”

It’s nice to know we aren’t wasting our time. Hopefully her fellow faux Indian moonbat Ward Churchill is stunned too.

Purging Christianity From College Football

For the liberal agenda to succeed, individual conscience must be eliminated, so that only the State and its affiliates determine what is right and wrong. That won’t happen so long as Christianity exists in a meaningful form.

Unfortunately for our liberal rulers, they do not yet have the political leverage to repeal the First Amendment, which explicitly prohibits restrictions on the free exercise of religion. No worries; they simply twist the establishment clause of this same amendment to mean there can be no Christianity where there is government. In a country where government has bloated to the point of crowding out almost everything that is not coercion-based, that is virtually the same as a ban.

For example, colleges are heavily subsidized by the government; therefore, Christianity can be purged from college football teams.

Like environmentalist tyranny, the campaign to eliminate Christianity is often driven by statist attack dogs outside the government proper. Here the Freedom From Religion Foundation launches a jihad against Christianity on the Clemson University football team:

According to a letter of complaint to Clemson, the Freedom From Religion Foundation claims coach Dabo Swinney has violated the separation of church and state by arranging by Bible studies and devotionals, and distributing Bibles and other religious materials to players.

The foundation said it submitted an open records request in February to obtain emails and information from Clemson illustrating the connection between football and religion.

“What we have observed in the records is that the football coaching staff is doing a number of things to promote Christianity to their student-athletes,” foundation staff attorney Patrick Elliott said.

Given some of the prison-worthy extracurricular activities of football players, promoting Christianity among them should be lauded. But it does not advance the liberal agenda.

Graciously, the militant moonbats from FFRF are still willing to permit students to pray for now, but forbid coaching staff to take part in it. They demand the elimination of a chaplain position on the grounds that the chaplain is exerting religious influence on players. They also complain about Bible quotes appearing on a whiteboard, as if they were obscenities that should not be presented in public.

As if oblivious to their own hypocrisy, the FFRF thugs from faraway Wisconsin who demand that a team in South Carolina purge Christianity from its locker room screech that Swinney “creates a culture of religious coercion,” despite there being no mandatory participation in anything religious. That is the objective of liberalism in a nutshell: to create a culture of coercion. Naturally the FFRF et al. use coercive means to achieve it.

Mail Bomber Colin George Dunstan Awarded Small Fortune

Don’t think you can escape the insanity of liberalism by heading Down Under. But Australia might be a fine place for mail bomber Ted Kaczynski to relocate. His colleague Colin George Dunstan has hit paydirt:

Convicted tax office letter bomber Colin George Dunstan has been awarded more than $415,000 in workers compensation.

A little background on Dunstan:

Dunstan posted 28 bombs to colleagues and high-profile public servants he believed had wronged him in 1998.

Most were intercepted by police, however one detonated at the Fyshwick mail centre, injuring a postal worker.

Dunstan spent nine years behind bars after he was convicted of charges of posting an explosive and attempting to inflict grievous bodily harm.

The former Australian Taxation Officer IT worker was officially sacked from the public service in 2001, about a year after he was imprisoned.

Impressive. It only took a year to fire him from his government job after he was thrown in jail for sending mail bombs. If the Obama Regime were half as efficient, we would have been rid of Eric Holder years ago.

Here’s how he hit the jackpot:

Dunstan won a two-decade fight for compensation in 2012, after the Administrative Appeals Tribunal found his former workplace had contributed to his chronic depression, which led to his crimes.

He claimed he had been left depressed and suicidal after a former lover sexually harassed and stalked him in the fallout of a soured office romance.

You didn’t think Dunstan himself was responsible for his criminal behavior, did you? That would be old-fashioned thinking. In the end, the taxpayer is always responsible.

Now to get his job back:

Dunstan still has an ongoing legal battle in the ACT [Australian Capital Territory] Supreme Court over the validity of his suspension from duty.

If his old position is no longer available, maybe they can get him something at the post office.

Colin George Dunstan
Dunstan: Not as nuts as the moonbats in charge.

Brad Stine’s Countermoonbat Comedy

You might say that an atheist is someone who doesn’t believe in God, whereas a militant atheist is someone who is hostile to God. Brad Stine trips up the latter with a simple question:

That was a bit deeper than the vacuous politically correct crapola usually presented on Comedy Central. Apologies to pointy-headed elitists who had a hard time following.

Kayvon Edson’s Boston Marathon Performance Art

Yesterday, on the 1-year anniversary of a deadly Muslim terror attack, an apparent moonbat named Kayvon Edson thought this would be amusing:

A 25-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly leaving two bags near the site of the Boston Marathon finish line on the anniversary of the bombing attack last year that killed three people and injured more than 200 others. …

Edson reportedly told police one of the bags had a rice cooker inside, prompting a call to bomb squad officials. The rice cooker reportedly contained confetti. The other bag allegedly contained photo equipment.

Edson considers himself a performance artist:

“I really need exposure,” the person calling himself “Kayvon Edson” says in a YouTube clip bearing the same name. “I really need to build this world that I’ve already started creating.”

New England Cable News identified the suspect as 25-year-old Kevin Edson Tuesday night.

The YouTube account is also connected to the website for an “eco-awareness and ethical threads” company called Natural Selection, which says Edson founded the project and describes him as “a fashion designer first and a wannabe entrepreneur second. Kayvon knows fashion, and isn’t afraid to tell it to ya straight — even though he’s a total f*g.”

Assuming he wrote his own bio on the Natural Selection website, which appears to be entirely his own creation, Edson is not a moonbat after all, but rather a schizophrenic. Making the distinction can be difficult, but Edson gives himself away by using the word “fag,” which is considered an unpardonable thought crime among liberals.

Kayvon Edson: On the border between moonbattery and psychosis.

Primary Mission of Western Washington University Is Not to Educate but to Be Less White

If there is one thing that can still be learned at universities that have been driven psychotic by the left-wing ideology they inculcate, it is that your most paranoid suspicions regarding liberals are justified. Anything lefties associate with traditional America, they will strive to erase. That prominently includes the whites who have always made up the majority of the American population:

A school-wide questionnaire at Western Washington University (WWU) asked the community “How do we make sure that in future years ‘we are not as white as we are today?’”

The question, released through the communications and marketing department’s daily newsletter Western Today, comes on the heels of admonishments given in multiple convocation addresses by WWU President Bruce Shepard for the university’s “failure” to be less white.

“Every year, from this stage and at this time, you have heard me say that, if in decades ahead, we are as white as we are today, we will have failed as university,” Shepard said in the 2012 speech.

The explicit mission is not to educate, but to eradicate through displacement.

Yet white students and faculty keep on existing. Worse, they continue to be more qualified than the sacred races who have been placed atop the liberal caste system precisely because of their lower achievement.

You can’t say Shepard hasn’t been trying:

The university has already replaced standard performance reviews with sensitivity training and hosts workshops to better serve undocumented [i.e., predominantly Third World illegal alien] students. WWU also provides literature on how to better “recruit and retain faculty and staff of color.”

Like most liberals who make a jihad out of hating white people, Shepard is white himself. Watch him crowing with pride that he considers not being a white male to be the ultimate qualification for positions at his university:

Dogma that teaches people to want there to be fewer like themselves represents not a legitimate point of view but a disease — the intellectual equivalent of biological warfare. Those who use their control of education and the media to implant this disease are the ultimate enemies of American civilization. They want not to rule it but to exterminate it. Those who succumb to this disease take treason to the most unforgivable extreme conceivable.

Emails Tie Lois Lerner to Justice Department in IRS Abuse of Power Scandal

The weaponized IRS has officially been linked to the weaponized Department of Social Justice in the campaign to persecute nonprofits likely to resist the liberal agenda. Katie Pavlich breaks the news:

According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for “lying” about political activity.

The smoking gun:

lois-lerner-email

Some context:

Just a few short days later on May 10, 2013, Lerner admitted and apologized for the inappropriate targeting of conservative tea party groups during an American Bar Association Conference after answering a planted question. Further according to Judicial Watch, “In an email to an aide responding to a request for information from a Washington Post reporter, Lerner admits that she “can’t confirm that there was anyone on the other side of the political spectrum” who had been targeted by the IRS.

That is, the criminal prosecution was only for conservative outfits, like Obama nemesis Catherine Engelbrecht’s anti-fraud group True the Vote — through which Congress has already been implicated in this abuse of power scandal:

Last week news broke that Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’ staff was in contact with Lerner about the conservative group True the Vote, despite denying any contact occurred. In this specific instance of Lerner discussing possible criminal prosecution of tax-exempt groups through DOJ, Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse seems to have been the person to get the ball rolling.

On April 9, 2013 during a Senate Judiciary Hearing, just one month before the targeting scandal broke, Whitehouse asked witnesses from DOJ and the IRS why groups that had possibly “made false statements” about their political activities had not been prosecuted.

In other words, the hard left Senator from Rhode Island didn’t just want Tea Party groups denied tax-exempt status; he wanted people thrown in jail.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton explains why these emails have been enshrouded in Obama’s ballyhooed “transparency”:

“These new emails show that the day before she broke the news of the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner was talking to a top Obama Justice Department official about whether the DOJ could prosecute the very same organizations that the IRS had already improperly targeted. The IRS emails show Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is now implicated and conflicted in the IRS scandal. No wonder we had to sue in federal court to get these documents.”

We are at a tipping point. Either the people involved are held responsible and we turn back toward being Americans, or Obama et al. get away with using the federal government to destroy groups deemed unhelpful to their agenda, and we plunge forward into banana republic Hope & Change.

City Councilman Daniel Dromm: No One Who Even Privately Opposes Homosexual Agenda Is Welcome in New York

Authoritarian governor Andrew Cuomo — who famously bellowed that non-leftists who are “right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” are not welcome in New York — isn’t the only New York politician unwilling to tolerate the presence of anyone who dissents from liberal orthodoxy:

City Councilman Daniel Dromm, in remarks made to the Huffington Post, protested plans of Chick-fil-A to open new locations in his city because its CEO has in the past publicly expressed his own personal belief in marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

Excuse this link to the odious HuffPo:

A Chick-fil-A spokeswoman told The Huffington Post that the company is “still in the process of evaluating locations in [New York].”

Good luck with that.

“We don’t need bigots coming to New York City,” Councilman Daniel Dromm, who is openly gay, told HuffPost. “They are not welcome here unless they can embrace all of New York’s diverse community, including the LGBT community.”

By embracing the repugnant “LGBT community,” Drone means that no one associated with a company can ever have said anything that homofascists like himself regard as resistance to their agenda.

Chick-fil-A put itself in the crosshairs of the gay mafia when CEO Dan Cathy dared to voice support for traditional marriage. Since then he has regrettably caved in to the extent that he will “leave it to politicians and others to discuss social issues,” as if only those who conform to the latest dictates from the degenerate left are entitled to voice their opinions in a country that some still refer to as America.

At least Cathy didn’t reverse his position, like the contemptible belly-crawler Guido Barillo. But simply keeping your views private isn’t good enough for homofascists. Just ask Brendan Eich.

Back to HuffPo:

Dromm, the city councilman, said there was no place for Chick-fil-A in New York, even if it remains out of the political fray.

“We don’t need bigoted people even keeping their opinions to themselves,” he said.

By “bigoted people,” he is referring to anyone who believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman. This includes not only literally all Bible-believing Christians, but 99% of people in general who have lived since there was such a thing as marriage.

If Cultural Marxists can ram the bizarre and obscene homosexual agenda down our throats to the extent that a company cannot do business in the country’s largest city if someone associated with that company is suspected of holding a view that until a couple of years ago was shared by virtually everyone (including even liberal luminaries Barack Obama and Shrillary Clinton), there is nothing they can’t use their control of the media to make us go along with.

Again we see that withdrawing from the fray gets you nowhere. Either fight rats like Dromm tooth and nail for every inch of cultural territory, or prepare yourself to live in the sewer that is their world.

Michael Bloomberg Grants Himself Eternal Life in Heaven

Micromanaging moonbat Michael Bloomberg is no longer Mayor of New York, having been replaced by another tyrant even further to the Left. But Bloomberg’s long-term prospects are still looking bright — at least, according to his own estimation. Boasts Bloomie:

“I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”

Bloomberg has granted himself this VIP ticket through the Pearly Gates as a reward for his nanny state authoritarianism and his anti-constitutional efforts to deprive law-abiding citizens of their God-given right of self-defense.

I seem to recall something in the Bible about pride going before a fall. But maybe Bloomberg overruled this with one of his many arrogant decrees.

Suspended for Teaching Science

If there is one thing you don’t want to do in a government school science class, it is teach science rather than indoctrinate the kids with leftist propaganda. It could get you suspended:

A science teacher has been suspended from his job at a Los Angeles high school for helping two students with science projects that the school district considers “imitation weapons.”

Greg Schiller, 43, who teaches Advanced Placement biology and psychology at the Cortines School of Visual & Performing Arts, was investigated by the L.A. Unified School District in February after a school employee thought two of the Science Fair projects he was overseeing were dangerous.

One used compressed air to fire a small projectile—but it wasn’t hooked up to a source of air pressure, so it couldn’t have fired. The other was a research project into how a coil gun—basically a tube charged by a power source until it expels a projectile—works. …

Neither of the completed projects was built at school. Schiller had just followed their progress in photos. Both projects have been confiscated as evidence, according to the mother of the ninth grader who was researching powered coils.

In a future America populated by weenies terrified of anything that might remind a liberal of a gun, such research will be left to our adversaries.

As is usually the case with ham-fisted liberal authoritarianism, Schiller’s suspension has had a ripple effect. Among the consequences:

The fencing team he coached has been banned from competing without him, his psychology class is being taught by an inexperienced sub (and the school won’t let him provide lesson plans), and he’s been unable to participate in labor negotiations as a teachers’ union rep.

But even the sacred teachers’ unions have to take a back seat to the campaign to instill terror of anything related to weaponry. Creating a generation of cowering victims who will happily let themselves be disarmed by their rulers is Job No. 1 for government educrats.

Illegal Aliens Given $Billions of Our Money by IRS

It is easy to go into a funk on Tax Day, when you think of how much of your life is spent generating wealth for our hostile federal overlords to confiscate and waste. Why not look at the bright side? For illegal aliens, Tax Day is like Christmas — and you get to be Santa Claus:

This has been going on throughout the country. Of course the Feds know all about it. Harry Reid, Obama’s cat’s paw in the Senate, has squashed efforts to put an end to the ongoing looting spree.

The purpose of the IRS is not to raise revenue. That task is accomplished much more efficiently by using the Federal Reserve to inflate the currency. To use the phraseology Obama did while exhorting Hispanics to vote for Democrats, the IRS is there to “punish our enemies” and “reward our friends.”

Normal Americans who work for a living are the government’s enemies. The illegal aliens it has been importing by the millions at our expense to displace us are its friends. Here we see how the IRS redistributes wealth from one group to the other.

Bundy Ranch Showdown Is Not Over

Oligarchical collectivists — essentially what we used to call communists — took over the USA without firing a shot. They didn’t manage this without knowing how to pick their battles. Stand up to them and they will often back down — only to slink around and come up on you from behind. The Showdown at the Bundy Ranch is not over yet:

The executive director of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association says his sources inside the federal government warn that Washington’s weekend retreat in a dispute over grazing land in Nevada was only a move to distract attention and diffuse tensions, because a raid on the family’s ranch still is planned.

And there probably would be violence involved, said Richard Mack, the former sheriff of Graham County, Ariz.

“I don’t think it would be possible” to launch a raid without violence, he told WND Monday. “I don’t think the Bundys would lie down and be taken.”

He cited the vow by Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., that the confrontation was far from over, despite the weekend’s retreat by armed gunmen working for federal agencies.

Reid on Monday told KRNV-TV in Reno: “It’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over.”

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this applied not only to tyrannical laws intended to drive ranchers out of business, but also to the laws essential to preserving the territorial integrity of the nation? Illegal aliens violate the law every day just by living here. They don’t walk away from it. Instead, they boldly step forward to collect their welfare payments.

Reid is letting his arrogance get the better of him. The strategy ought to be to let this die down, so that tempers cool and the media can justify forgetting all about it. Then quietly arrest the Bundys when they venture off the ranch. Otherwise, it is likely to become public knowledge that Reid could have self-interested reasons to want the Bundys out of business and off their land:

The Nevada rancher who forced the federal Bureau of Land Management to back down last week may have been targeted because a Chinese solar company with ties to Sen. Harry Reid’s son wants the land for an energy plant, several websites report.

A report on Godfatherpolitics.com, says Chinese energy giant ENN Energy Group wants to use federal land as part of its effort to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel-building plant in the southern Nevada desert. Rory Reid, the son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, is representing ENN in their efforts to locate in Nevada.

Part of the land ENN wants to use was purchased from Clark County at well below appraised value. Rory Reid is the former Clark County Commission chairman, and he persuaded the commission to sell 9,000 acres of county land to ENN on the promise it would provide jobs for the area, Reuters reported in 2012.

In addition to the county acreage, the federal Bureau of Land Management at one time was looking at BLM property under dispute with cattle rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM is headed by former Harry Reid senior policy adviser Neil Kornz.

According to BizPac Review, BLM documents indicate that the federal property for which Bundy claims grazing rights were under consideration by a solar energy company. Those documents have since been removed from BLM’s website…

In the Age of Obama, disappearing documents are all part of the “transparency.”

Speaking of Obama, the Moonbat Messiah has laundered vast fortunes through phony green energy boondoggles, funneling taxpayer money into the pockets of his donors. Given Harry Reid’s conspicuous reputation for corruption, it is hardly surprising that he would want a piece of this action. Readers will recall that he has been involved in skeevy solar deals with the ChiComs before.

The bigger and more powerful the government, the more inevitable the tyranny and corruption.
