Is It Racist to Call Mike Tomlin a Player’s Coach?

Don’t spend precious time on football unless you are ready to accept that it has become predominantly a black sport, and consequently everything is always about race. You can’t even compliment anyone without being accused of racism. Here’s the reaction when people call Mike Tomlin of the Steelers a “player’s coach”:

Later Tomlin said he was “not insulted by that term in any way.” But sportscasters are advised not to apply it to him again.

There is literally nothing you can say that won’t be regarded as racist, leaving you with two choices: (1) don’t say anything or (2) don’t give a damn if they call you a racist.

James O’Keefe Exposes Battleground Texas — Again

Now that massive Third World immigration (most of it illegal) has turned California from the Land of Reagan into a giant Massachusetts, Texas is all that stands between Democrats and total domination of the federal government. There isn’t much they won’t do to flip it into the socialist column.

James O’Keefe wondered if the Democrat outfit Battleground Texas would report a worker who confessed to violating election laws. Here is the answer:

While this hardly rises to the level of the systematic voter fraud perpetrated by Obama’s alma mater ACORN, neither does it show a high regard for the sanctity of elections.

Previously, Project Veritas nailed Battleground Texas for illegally copying voter data.

Ebola Hits USA

Obama has continuously broadcast the message that all Third-Worlders are welcome aboard the American welfare gravy train, and has steadfastly refused to seal the border. Two weeks ago he sent thousands of US troops into Ebola-infested Liberia, even while ruling out sending troops to fight ISIS in Iraq. Consequently this story is taking no one by surprise:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the United States Tuesday.

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas officials said in a statement Monday that an unnamed patient was being tested for Ebola and had been placed in “strict isolation” due to the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history.

This brings us one step closer to being fundamentally transformed into a Third World country. Once America is indistinguishable from every other diseased, dysfunctional hellhole, liberals won’t have to feel guilty anymore.

It was only a matter of time.

Liberals Call for New Constitution

We will know we have reached the end game — the part where the Second Amendment needs to come into play — when liberals stop gradually eroding the Constitution and progress to tearing it to shreds so as to replace it with a new document that will explicitly reject individual liberty and affirm their malign ideology of race-based collectivist tyranny. According to some, that time is at hand:

The Vice Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee urges us to heed moonbat college professors writing at, who fantasize about inflicting a whole new constitution. They blame the recent decline of the nation not on the lunatic flower child ideology of the 1960s now being imposed by the establishment, nor on Obama’s catastrophic Affirmative Action presidency, but on the same Constitution that made the country great and held it together for over 2 centuries:

The most recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll says that a clear-cut majority is disgusted with the present political scene and retains little hope that future generations will fare as well as we have. As candidates get down and dirty in the lead-up to midterm elections, 60 percent say the country is in a general state of decline. A mere 19 percent of those polled have a favorable opinion of Republicans in Congress; their Democratic colleagues (or “colleagues”) poll at 31 percent. But the most remarkable number is 79: that’s the percentage of the politicized public that presently voices its discontent with the entire American political system as constituted; and fully half of the respondents said “very dissatisfied.” […]

Though they haven’t articulated it as such, Americans want a new constitution that actually does what the original Constitution was supposed to do: serve the public good.

Or maybe we haven’t articulated our wish to replace the Constitution with the authoritarian leftist document the authors go on to describe at tedious length because we want the Constitution restored, not discarded.

Imagine living under a constitution written by the same people who imposed ObamaCare, at the urging of the sort of communist kooks who publish their malevolent screeds at At least the government would finally build that promised fence on the border. They would need it to keep us from escaping to Mexico.

Media Covers for Obama’s Effect on 60 Minutes Ratings

You would think that scoring a one-on-one interview with the President of the USA right after he kinda sorta declared war would provide a big ratings boost. But not if the POTUS — like his dog and pony show of a kinda sorta war — is an unfunny joke that the American public has tuned out:

CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. […T]he drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69% from last Sunday[…].

That’s quite a plunge. Apparently no one cared to hear Obama tell self-serving lies to obsequious soft baller Steve Kroft.

At least the liberal media establishment that hyped him into power still likes him:

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. […]

A gold star goes to Hal Boedeker at the Orlando Sentinel for apparently being the only reporter to mentioned Obama in reporting on 60 Minutes’ ratings however he did not mention the huge ratings drop.

Reports could either mention the 60 Minutes rating collapse or mention that it featured Obama. Mentioning both would be racist.

Owner Declares Her Gun Range a Muslim-Free Zone

Is this still a free country? If so, we still enjoy the fundamental right of freedom of association. That would mean there will be no retaliation from the Islamophile federal government over Jan Morgan’s announcement that Muslims are no longer welcome at her Hot Springs, Arkansas business, the Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range.

The policy is well-founded. From the owner’s website:

The primary reasons I do not want muslims shooting at my range are listed:

1) The Koran (which I have read and studied thoroughly) and (which all muslims align themselves with), contains 109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror against all human beings who refuse to submit or convert to Islam. Read those verses of violence here.

2) My life has been threatened repeatedly by muslims in response to my publication of those verses from their Koran. Why would I want to rent or sell a gun and hand ammunition to someone who aligns himself with a religion that commands him to kill me?

3) * The barbaric act of beheading an innocent American in Oklahoma by a muslim
* the Boston bombings (by muslims)
* the Foot Hood mass shooting (by a muslim) that killed 13 people and injured over 30 people
* and the murder of 3000 innocent people (by muslims) on 9/11
This is more than enough loss of life on my home soil at the hands of muslims to substantiate my position that muslims can and may follow the directives in their Koran and kill here at home.

4) Two muslims walked in to my range last week with allah akbar ring tone and message alert tones on their smart phones. They spoke very little english, one did not have proof of U.S. citizenship, yet they wanted to rent and shoot guns.
Their behavior was so strange, it was unnerving to my patrons. No one would enter the range to shoot while they were there. Some of my customers left.
(can you blame them?)

5) * Muslims, who belong to and, or, support ISIS, are threatening to kill innocent Americans.
* Muslims, who belong to or support AL Qaeda, are threatening to kill innocent Americans.
* Muslims who belong to or support HAMAS are threatening to kill innocent Americans.
See a common thread here?

6) I have a federal firearms license… The ATF informed us when we received the license that if we feel any reason for concern about selling someone a firearm, even sense that something is not right about an individual, or if we are concerned about that persons mental state, even if they pass a background check, we do not have to sell that person a gun.
In other words, a federal agency has given us this kind of discretion for service based on the nature of the business. I can and have turned people away if I sense an issue with their mental state.

7) I understand that not all muslims are terrorists. […] Since I have no way of discerning which muslims will or will not kill in the name of their religion and the commands in their koran…I choose to err on the side of caution for the safety of my patrons. […]

In summary, people who shoot at my range come from all religious backgrounds… some are atheists… I do not care about their religious beliefs until or unless those beliefs command them to commit violent crimes against innocent people and I witness those crimes increasing, as we all have lately.

If you had received death threats by muslims, would you want the government telling you that you had to allow them in to your home or business and hand them a loaded gun?

I will do whatever is necessary to provide a safe environment for my customers, even at the cost of the increased threats and legal problems this decision will likely provoke.

Jan Morgan- owner / The Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range

Ironically, gun ranges are the one place Americans are relatively safe from Muslims, since everyone there is armed, and any Religion of Peacenik who starts murdering people to please their evil god will be cut down quickly. Nonetheless it is Morgan’s store, and if she doesn’t feel it wise to provide guns to Islamists, that is her decision to make. Any non-Muslim within driving distance is encouraged to patronize her business; she will need every penny she can lay her hands on to fight off the lawsuits and federal government.

If she has the courage to stand up to both Islamic maniacs and the Injustice Department, she can probably withstand being denounced as a “bigot” by foolish moonbats even at pro-gun sites who don’t understand that she is not denying anyone their rights, because her business is private.

We will hear sanctimonious squawking about the First Amendment’s protection of religious freedom from liberals who normally undermine this clause at every opportunity. But even if you regard Islam as a legitimate religion and not a fascistic death cult, the First Amendment protects people from the government, not from Jan Morgan. If you want to worship Allah at the gun range, you are still free to do it at someone else’s.

Kudos to this brave woman.

Jan Morgan, esteemed countermoonbat.

Slate Yelps That Shrinking Antarctic Ice Is Destroying Gravity Itself

For once climate kook doomsayers have some good news. “Climate change” can help you lose weight. This is because the imaginary phenomenon of manmade global warming is effecting gravity itself. From Slate yesterday:

Gravity—yes, gravity—is the latest victim of climate change in Antarctica. That’s the stunning conclusion announced Friday by the European Space Agency.

“The loss of ice from West Antarctica between 2009 and 2012 caused a dip in the gravity field over the region,” writes the ESA, whose GOCE satellite measured the change. Apparently, melting billions of tons of ice year after year has implications that would make even Isaac Newton blanch. …

The biggest implication is the new measurements confirm global warming is changing the Antarctic in fundamental ways. Earlier this year, a separate team of scientists announced that major West Antarctic glaciers have begun an “unstoppable” “collapse,” committing global sea levels to a rise of several meters over the next few hundred years. …

Current best estimates show that global seas could be as much as 50 inches higher by century’s end, due in large part to ice melt in West Antarctica.

Wow, that’s scary. Unless you read this in the same publication a week ago last Thursday:

For four days in a row this week, sea ice surrounding Antarctica has broken all-time records. But—get this—the ice is expanding, not shrinking.

It’s the third consecutive year that the icebergs that surround the continent have expanded into unseen territory.

Oh but that’s sea ice, not land ice. Whatever. The ice isn’t melting because it is not getting warmer, proving the entire theory the hoax is based on to be false.

But maybe if they hype the herd into enough of a panic, not enough people will realize what is going on until they have centralized the economy and it is too late to get our relative freedom and standard of living back.

There’s no shortage of ice, despite the propaganda. Via Freaking News.

Chuck Schumer Proclaims That There Are No Global Warming Skeptics in New York

We already know that New York’s rulers do not welcome non-leftists. As Governor Andrew Cuomo put it,

“Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

We also know that according to its leadership, there are no homosexuals in Iran:

Vilified as a Holocaust denier, a supporter of terrorism and a backer of Iraqi insurgents, the president of Iran was actually able to make New Yorkers burst into laughter – though he did not intend to.

“In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said at Columbia University … in response to a question about the recent execution of two gay men there.

So no one should be surprised to hear left-wing Senator Chuck Schumer shout that no one in the entire state of New York fails to embrace liberals’ global warming hoax:

“[A]nybody in New York who doubted the effects of climate change changed their minds after Sandy,” Schumer is seen saying in a YouTube video posted by

Needless to say, any causal relationship between the 2012 storm Sandy and global warming, or climate change, or global cooling, or climate disruption, or climate non-stasis, or whatever they are calling their crumbling hoax this week would be tenuous at best, even assuming that the climate is determined by human activity and the amount of regulation tyrants like Schumer inflict to restrict it.

The relationship between Democrat rhetoric and reality is still more tenuous.

Dem Rep James Moran Gives Money to Terrorist Front Group CAIR

Evidence accrues that a vote for Democrats is a vote for Islam and its terror war against Western Civilization:

A Democratic congressman has donated funds to a political group that was implicated in a criminal fund-raising operation for the jihad group, Hamas.

“Thank you Congressman James Moran for his generous personal donation to @CAIRNational at #CAIRturns20,” said a tweet from Linda Sarsour, the host at a Sept. 27 fund-raiser for the jihad-linked Council on American Islamic Relations. …

The Islamic group also gave the Democrat a “Lifetime Achievement Award” during the fundraising event, which provided CAIR with at least $350,000.

What does a congresscritter need to do to get such an award from a terrorist front group, other than give them money? Propaganda support is always appreciated:

Critics say the Democrat has repeatedly suggested that Jews are responsible for starting various wars in the Arab countries.

CAIR mostly serves to generate propaganda itself. But it has also directly raised funds for terrorists.

In 2009, a judge confirmed the Justice Department’s decision to name CAIR, its founder and [Executive Director Nihad] Awad as unindicted co-conspirators in a scheme to smuggle funds to Hamas, which is a jihadi affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood. …

Five men in the smuggling ring were sentenced to jail in 2009, including two who were given 65-year sentences. …

Separately, five CAIR employees or employees have been jailed or deported for terror-related offenses.

Alarmingly, Moron isn’t the only Democrat on cozy terms with CAIR. As noted here some time ago, plenty of Dems have taken money from these jihadists, presumably in return for influence. Then there is the Stander With the Muslims in Chief:

In June 2012, a top White House official said administration officials have had 100s of meetings with CAIR. “There is [sic] hundreds of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues,” George Selim told The Daily Caller, after being asked if his office refuses to meet with any Muslim groups. Selim is the White House’s director for community partnerships.

CAIR money continues to buy favor in Congress:

In May 2012, a covertly-taken photograph showed Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi standing near Awad at the top-dollar fundraiser. …

The cheapest tickets cost $5,000, and the most expensive were $30,800 per couple, according to the event invite from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which used the cash to fund Democratic candidates.

This may cast some light on why Democrats are willing to go along with Obama’s failed policy of siding with the rabidly anti-American Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Libya.

Awad is the one with the creepy smile.

Muslims Are Funny

I wasn’t kidding. Liberal propagandists are so far over the shark at this point that they honestly expect us to believe Muslim terror atrocities have nothing to do with Islam. Instead of regarding these violent savages as violent savages, we are supposed to think they are “funny”:

Muslims aren’t funny, but moonbats sure are. It cracked me right up when MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry referred to a knuckle-dragging Islamic fiend as the “gentleman” who had just cut an innocent woman’s head off for being a kafir after he was fired. Naturally there is no mention of why he was fired.

Sooner or later, Americans are going to get sick of being terrorized and murdered by Muslims. When they do, they will also get sick of the liberals who have bent over backwards to defend and enable Western Civilization’s ancient enemy.

Oklahoma City Islamic Beheading Trivialized as “Workplace Violence”

If there is anything that all sane people can agree on, it is that Alton Nolen’s ISIS-esque beheading of coworker Colleen Hufford in Oklahoma City was an example of applied Islam:

Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Alexander Nolen calls himself “Jah’Keem Yisrael” on his Facebook page, where he uploaded photos of himself reading the Koran and wearing Muslim religious clothing.

Nolen’s Facebook “cover” photo appears to be of several Taliban fighters, according to a Google reverse image search.

He also posted images of Osama bin Laden and wrote in a caption on a photograph of the 9/11 attacks “A Future Prophecy Revelation 18:8 She (The statue Of Liberty) is going into flames. She and anybody who’s with her.” He also referenced U.S. intervention in Iraq in a July 24 post, writing, “AMERICA SO CALL HELPS IRAQ (WHICH NOT)- WELL WHY CANT U HELP THE GAZA CITIZENS AGAINST ISRAEL…AMERICA AND ISRAEL ARE WICKED. WAKE UP MUSLIMS!!!” …

“I JST WANT TO SAY AS AN MUSLIM WE DNT CELEBRATE AMERIKAS HOLIDAYS,” he wrote in a caption accompanying a photograph of an Islamist fighter.

Here is an example of what he posted on Facebook for all to see:


Here’s Alton dressed up in a scary costume way too early for Halloween:

Alton Nolan

He obeyed Mohammad’s command to smite the infidel in the neck after Muslims worldwide were encouraged to do so by the Islamic State, and right after being fired for his obnoxiously aggressive Islamic proselytizing (specifically regarding the stoning of women).

Yet the authorities did not describe the act as yet another instance of Muslim terrorism. Instead — just like with Fort Hood — they trivialized it as “workplace violence.”

If the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam, as Obama proclaimed to our faces, then neither does the psychopathic behavior of “Jah’Keem Yisrael.”

Elsewhere in Oklahoma,

In a bizarre coincidence, a fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested Friday after a co-worker reported he threatened to cut her head off.

The supposed “bizarre coincidence” is that this happened the day after Nolan beheaded Colleen Hufford in the same city. How even the most willfully blind dhimmi moonbat could regard this as a coincidence is left for the reader to imagine.

At least this time someone is admitting that terrorism is terrorism:

Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a terrorism complaint.

Brace yourself for a big surprise — Muriithi isn’t a Baptist:

Muriithi was identified as a native of Kenya who is living in Oklahoma City. […The woman he threatened] said Muriithi identified himself as a Muslim and said he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians,” the detective told a judge in the affidavit. …

The woman said she asked him why they kill Christians and he replied, “This is just what we do,” the detective reported.

Similarly, reflexively defending the ideology that drives these fiends is just what the liberal establishment does.

Muriithi told the coworker that he was going to cut her head off with “a blade” and then post it on Facebook, presumably to inspire similar acts of cultural outreach among his fellow Muslims.

Our government continues to import these people into the country on a massive scale.

Obama Doubles Down on Race-Baiting Before Congressional Black Caucus

In the face of collapsing approval ratings, Obama is bitterly clinging to his base by doubling down on the race-baiting that has helped doom his misbegotten presidency to failure. The Congressional Black Caucus annual awards dinner was an ideal forum for the divisive demagoguery that has been his stock in trade:

The widespread mistrust of law enforcement that was exposed by the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man in Missouri exists in too many other communities and is having a corrosive effect on the nation, particularly on its children, President Barack Obama says. He blames the feeling of wariness on persistent racial disparities in the administration of justice.

Remember the farcical case of Henry Louis Gates? The leftist Harvard professor accused police who were just doing their job and who behaved like saints in the face of his obnoxiousness of being racists. Before bothering to find out what had actually happened, Obama proclaimed to the world that the police had “acted stupidly.” When details of Gates’ outrageously unreasonable behavior became public, our Historic First Utterly Unqualified President found himself wiping egg from his face at the pathetic Beer Summit spectacle.

Not being a particularly quick study, Obama learned nothing whatsoever from having stepped on this rake. When the truth is established, it will most likely show that Darren Wilson acted reasonably by putting down the mad dog that attacked him. But Obama isn’t waiting around for facts. He is running with the liberal media narrative that if a white cop shoots a black hoodlum, it must be out of sheer malice.

Racial disparities in the administration of justice? Those are a problem, all right. Just ask Ron Goldman. No wait, you can’t. Ask Fred Goldman.

Blathered Obama:

“Too many young men of color feel targeted by law enforcement — guilty of walking while black or driving while black, judged by stereotypes that fuel fear and resentment and hopelessness.”

Rather than mentioning that the best way to avoid being stereotyped is to stop engaging in stereotypical behavior, he encouraged more of this behavior.

Obama noted that black girls are more likely than their white peers to be suspended, jailed and physically harassed, and that black women struggle daily with “biases that perpetuate oppressive standards for how they’re supposed to look and how they’re supposed to act.”

Could it be that ignoring “oppressive standards” regarding “how they’re supposed to act” is the reason they are suspended and jailed more frequently? Nah. They must be innocent victims oppressed by the same white racists who elected Obama president mainly on the strength of his skin color.

Dems Exploit Takeover of Student Loan Program to Reward Government Workers

As part of the ObamaCare power grab, Obama nationalized the student loan industry. Here is how well borrowing money to pay grotesquely inflated tuition rates has been working out for recent grads:

[T]he average college graduate under 40 who carries student debt currently has a median net worth of just $8,700. The Washington Post recently advised newly-minted college graduates to give up hope and go live in their parents’ basements.

Since government assistance has freed college tuition from the restraints of the free market, causing it to rocket into the stratosphere, the debt burden is crushing recent grads. Not to worry; Big Government always has a solution to the problems it creates. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) steps forward:

Eschewing efforts to create the private-sector jobs that drive economic growth and wealth creation, the progressive Senator instead proposed a new law [last] week that would generously forgive the student loans of government workers and employees at qualifying nonprofits.

Become absorbed in the government borg and your education is on the house. Choose to work in a private sector crippled by excessive taxation and malicious regulation and you get to pull the cart instead of riding in it.

You don’t actually have to work directly for the government…

Blumenthal’s bill would supercharge the existing, already-generous Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, which completely forgives the student loans incurred by qualifying government and nonprofit workers if these special workers manage to stay employed for 10 straight years and make their loan payments each month.

Nonprofit groups that qualify are tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations. Such organizations have included the local chapters of the now-defunct Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and the Center for American Progress, which is related to the leftist blog ThinkProgress.

Workers in private-sector, for-profit industries currently enjoy no such loan forgiveness program and wouldn’t enjoy the impressive additional benefits Blumenthal proposes.

The inevitable effect: more students resigned to careers as bureauweenies and majoring in policy studies, global warming studies, victim studies, et cetera, ad nauseam, and fewer acquiring an education that would facilitate making a productive contribution to society.

Barks Blumenthal:

“We should reward public service — particularly as the need for talented and dedicated public servants grows.”

One example of “public service” is using our money to create ever more public servants.

We need more public servants like New York City subways need more rats.

Speaking of rats… Blumenthal inflicts some public service.
