California Cracks Down on Flatulating Cows

Consider the senseless repressiveness of an America in which there is no opposition to left-wing Democrats. You don’t need to use your imagination. Just look to the single-party state of California, where ideologically justified micromanagement has reached such an extreme of absurdity that a cow can’t fart unregulated:

Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation in September that for the first time regulates heat-trapping gases from livestock operations and landfills.

Cattle and other farm animals are major sources of methane, a greenhouse gas many times more potent than carbon dioxide as a heat-trapping gas. Methane is released when they belch, pass gas and make manure.

Another “greenhouse gas” that is more significant than carbon dioxide is water vapor. Good thing for cows that they don’t take hot showers, which ecofascists will come after soon.

“If we can reduce emissions of methane, we can really help to slow global warming,” said Ryan McCarthy, a science adviser for the California Air Resources Board, which is drawing up rules to implement the new law.

Authorities believe they can control the weather by forcing farmers to contain methane from manure in giant tanks. Someone should have told them they could control it by the comparably effective technique of standing on their heads in the manure.

Livestock are responsible for 14.5 percent of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, with beef and dairy production accounting for the bulk of it, according to a 2013 United Nations report.

Pointy-headed UN oligarchs don’t like us eating meat. They want us eating bugs instead. Hopefully bugs don’t fart much, or California will crack down on them too.

California produces more milk than any other state. But not for long, with moonbats in charge.

In case there is anyone out there who literally believes that containing methane from California cows will improve the weather,

“Dairies are moving out of state to places where these costs don’t exist,” said Paul Sousa, director of environmental services for Western United Dairymen.

The dairy industry could be forced to move production to states and countries with fewer regulations, leading to higher emissions globally, Sousa said.

But at least Governor Moonbeam will be able to posture righteously as he drives an important industry out of his state.

Fart packs will probably will be mandated soon.

Euthanized for Having a Drinking Problem

Killing inconvenient prenatal babies is behind us now on the slippery slope. In Holland, we have already reached killing people for drinking too much:

A man in the Netherlands has been allowed to die because he could no longer carry on living as an alcoholic.

Mark Langedijk chose the day of his death and was telling jokes, drinking beer and eating ham sandwiches with his family hours before he passed away.

He was killed by lethal injection at his parents’ home on 14 July, according to an account of the ordeal written by his brother and published in the magazine Linda.

The Netherlands introduced a euthanasia law 16 years ago, which is available to people in “unbearable suffering” with no prospect of improvement.

Since then, the corpses have been piling up.

More than 5,500 people ended their life using Holland’s euthanasia laws last year. One of those who died was a sex abuse victim who suffered severe anorexia, chronic depression and hallucinations.

Once we have progressed to killing everyone who is not perfect and problem free, we will have a perfect, problem-free world — population 0.

If death is the solution, the problem must be life.

Muslim Cleric Gloats Over Wildfires in Israel

In case there is anyone left who doesn’t understand that Islam is malevolent, maybe it will help to watch Jordanian–Palestinian cleric Mashhoor bin Hassan gloating with joy over the wildfires that recently caused devastating damage in Israel:


As Jihad Watch observes, his “If a divine disaster hits an infidel, I’m happy” attitude is consistent with the Koran:

“Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him are harsh against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves.” (Qur’an 48:29)

The wildfires were a disaster, but hardly divine:

Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan said up to 50 percent of the fires in recent days had been deliberate, labelling it “arson terror.”

“It is clear that many fires started as deliberate arson.”

Authorities have proof that at least 17 of 110 wildfires were arson. The actual number is undoubtedly far higher.

But at least they were divinely inspired, through mouthpieces of Allah like Mashhoor bin Hassan — provided you regard Islam as a legitimate religion on a par with Christianity.

Try to imagine a Christian cleric gloating because innocent people have been burned out of their homes.

Divine in a pig’s eye.

College Encourages Students to Color

As Big Government becomes ever more committed to seeing that as many as possible attend college regardless of their likeliness to benefit, tuition has shot into the stratosphere. Unfortunately, there has not been a corresponding rise in the quality of education. But at least colleges are expanding into new areas — like encouraging increasingly infantilized students to color:

Bucks County Community College in Pennsylvania is apparently encouraging students to reduce their testing stress by coloring.

The college’s Testing Center has sponsored stations to be set up in the testing center to “Color Away Your Testing Stress,” according to a promotional flyer obtained by Campus Reform.

It seems that relieving exam stress by studying for the exam is outmoded.

This isn’t the school’s only venture into moonbattery:

BCCC also came under fire last year for firing an astronomy professor merely for mentioning God in a letter to students, which the school deemed a second offense because the professor had previously received a warning after offering students a free book on the last day of class that included Christian themes.

No need to think about grown-up stuff like the existence of God. Just chill out with some Crayolas while the school installs politically correct talking points where there could have been a developing mind.

For the money students/their parents/taxpayers pour into colleges, they ought to at least get complimentary teddy bears to hug for stress relief.

El Niño Ending Means Back to Global Warming Hiatus

It is absurd to think that any feasible increase in taxes and regulations would affect the climate, and highly debatable that human activity has a major effect on the temperature anyway, but at least we can all agree that the planet is getting warmer — or can we?

Global average temperatures over land have plummeted by more than 1C since the middle of this year – their biggest and steepest fall on record.

The news comes amid mounting evidence that the recent run of world record high temperatures is about to end.

The fall, revealed by Nasa satellite measurements of the lower atmosphere, has been caused by the end of El Nino – the warming of surface waters in a vast area of the Pacific west of Central America. …

Big El Ninos always have an immense impact on world weather, triggering higher than normal temperatures over huge swathes of the world. The 2015-16 El Nino was probably the strongest since accurate measurements began, with the water up to 3C warmer than usual.

Like most everything related to the climate, El Niño is part of a natural cycle. It is unlikely to respond to any extreme of tyranny inflicted by leftist ideologues. With its passing, weather tends to cool — carbon taxes or no carbon taxes, economically crippling regulations or no economically crippling regulations.

Not to worry, warmists. El Niño will come around again.

CNN Propagandist Alisyn Camerota Calls for Non-Muslim Women to Wear Hijabs in Solidarity With Islam

Stand by for a nauseating dose of Islamophilic moonbattery as CNN exploits the hoax-heavy wave of alleged Islamophobic hate crimes to advance its ideology, with the preposterous Alisyn Camerota wading so far into self-parody as to suggest that non-Muslim women wear hijabs to express solidarity with an ideology that brutally oppresses women and essentially calls for the eradication of non-Muslims:

Alisyn and her leftist friends stand in solidarity with Muslims, but as Jihad Watch notes, not with all Muslims:

Where is Alisyn Camerota’s concern for Aqsa Parvez, whose Muslim father choked her to death with her hijab after she refused to wear it? Or […] Amina Muse Ali, a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn’t wearing a hijab? Or the 40 women who were murdered in Iraq in 2007 for not wearing the hijab; or Alya Al-Safar, whose Muslim cousin threatened to kill her and harm her family because she stopped wearing the hijab in Britain; or Amira Osman Hamid, who faced whipping in Sudan for refusing to wear the hijab; or the Egyptian girl, also named Amira, who committed suicide after being brutalized for her family for refusing to wear the hijab; or the Muslim and non-Muslim teachers at the Islamic College of South Australia who were told that they had to wear the hijab or be fired; or…

It goes on, but you get the point — though I doubt Alisyn would.

Fidel Castro, Vampire

Everyone knows that communists are metaphorical vampires, feeding on wealth that slaves create the way unholy fiends might feed on their blood. But usually they don’t play the role quite as literally as dead lefty icon Fidel Castro:

[F]or all of Castro’s ranting about the exploitive nature of capitalism, it takes a truly mercenary mind to come up with the schemes his regime employed to garner hard currency — from drug-running, to assassinations to, well, vampiric behavior. The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights reported in 1966 that 166 Cuban prisoners were executed on a single day in May of that year. But before they were killed, they were forced to undergo the forced extraction of an average of seven pints of blood from their bodies. This blood was sold to Communist Vietnam at a rate of $50 per pint. Those who underwent the bloodletting suffered cerebral anemia and a state of unconsciousness and paralysis. But that didn’t stop the executions; the victims were carried on a stretcher to the killing field where they were then shot.

You might call it capitalism, communist style.

Hopefully Castro being a vampire doesn’t mean he will come back from the dead.

Put Dracula in charge of a country, he would run it like Cuba.

Lesson Learned When Good Guy With Gun Stops Muslim Maniac With Oversized Knife

Kudos to Officer Alan Horujko for gunning down Abdul Razak Ali Artan before he inevitably killed someone — even if it made moonbat congresscritter Sheila Jackson Lee sad, as indicated in this deleted tweet:


It saddened Tim Kaine too:

Actually, Jackson Lee and Kaine must have been under the impression that the terrorist used a gun, as was initially reported, rather than a car and a butcher knife. It is typical of leftists not to wait for the bodies to cool before exploiting shootings as pretexts to prevent us from defending ourselves against shooters. Now they don’t even wait to see if a gun was used by anyone but the good guy who put a stop to the violence.

For once a moonbat is right; gun laws should be adjusted — to make firearms more readily available to law-abiding citizens so they can defend themselves against maniacs like Artan.

Incredibly, at least one moonbat continued trying to exploit the terror attack to disarm us even after it was revealed that a gun was used to stop the terror, not to inflict it:

No matter what happens, the lesson progressives draw is that we need the government to make us more helpless. Sensible people usually draw very different lessons.

What Was Ohio State Maniac Abdul Razak Ali Artan Doing Here?

A better question than Abdul Razak Ali Artan’s motive for going berserk at Ohio State yesterday is what the Somali maniac was doing in our country. Here is how he got to Ohio:

Artan was a Somali refugee who left his homeland with his family in 2007, lived in Pakistan and then came to the United States in 2014 as a legal permanent resident.

He lived briefly in a temporary shelter in Dallas before settling in Ohio, according to records maintained by Catholic Charities.

Catholic Charities may ring a bell for readers:


Religiously affiliated nonprofits have been raking in a fortune by helping the government bring in Muslim colonists from terrorist breeding grounds like Somalia. In an Accuracy in Media piece on the topic, Catholic Charities comes up again:

Overall, reports Network, the self-described Catholic Social Justice Lobby, “…the Obama administration has actually increased funding for Catholic nonprofit organizations and programs. In fact, more than $1.5 billion went to Catholic organizations over the past two years.” These figures include an increase from just over $440 million (2008) to more than $554 million (2010) to Catholic Charities USA.

Catholic Charities USA is the umbrella group for Catholic Charities outfits around the country.

Normally hostile to Christianity, Obama doesn’t mind showering money on religious groups willing to advance his demographic agenda:

The Obama administration resettled 8,858 Somali refugees in the United States last year, and nearly 43,000 during Obama’s eight years, a huge number that is now raising concerns after a Somali refugee led a one-man attack spree on the campus of Ohio State.

Like Syrian refugees, there is no adequate way to check the backgrounds of the Somalis, according to the head of the Center for Immigration Studies.

All you need to know about their backgrounds to understand that they should not be imported in massive numbers is that they are Muslim. It is doubtful that a teenager like Artan was already a terrorist when he arrived.

The Center also reviewed other data Monday and told Secrets that some 97,000 Somali refugees have been resettled in the United States since 9/11. Of those, 99.6 percent were Muslim, and 28,836 (29.7 percent) were males between the ages of 14 and 50.

This is the potential equivalent of ushering in two or three divisions of a hostile army — then feeding and clothing them through the welfare state. But at least nonprofits are making a fat profit on it.

The purpose of immigration is not to provide a better life for those who have made a mess of their own countries due to their dysfunctional cultures, much less to allow Islam to spread at the expense of Western Civilization. The purpose is to improve our own country by bringing in people likely to contribute more than Democrat votes.

The Search for Abdul Razak Ali Artan’s Motive

Authorities must be pulling muscles in their brains, trying to figure out the motive of Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the latest person who just happened to be Muslim to go on a sociopathic rampage. After all, Artan wasn’t the wicked fiend of Islamophobic stereotypes, as can be confirmed in the August 25 issue of Ohio State’s The Lantern, in which Artan discusses his humble urge to pray after arriving at the school where he recently hospitalized 11 people with a car and a butcher knife:

“I wanted to pray in the open, but I was scared with everything going on in the media. I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be. If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don’t know what they’re going to think, what’s going to happen. But, I don’t blame them. It’s the media that put that picture in their heads so they’re just going to have it and it, it’s going to make them feel uncomfortable. I was kind of scared right now. But I just did it. I relied on God. I went over to the corner and just prayed.”

If only the media would stop putting the picture of violent Muslims in people’s heads, we would at last be free of Islamophobia.

A more informative reflection of Artan’s religious thought could be found on his Facebook page:

Artan, 18, wrote on what appears to be his Facebook page that he had reached a “boiling point,” made a reference to “lone wolf attacks” and cited radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

“America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially Muslim Ummah [community]. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that,” the post said.

But of course the piece goes on to note that officials “have not determined a motive for the ambush.”

Abdul Razak Ali Artan was oppressed by Islamophobic stereotypes of violent Muslims.

Why Black Lives Matter Weeps for Fidel

Black Lives Matter mourns the death of communist dictator Fidel Castro not only because he was an anti-American authoritarian collectivist, but for a more specific reason: his affinity for terrorists.

As Humberto Fontova notes,

Fidel Castro helped train and fund practically every terror group on earth, from the Weathermen to Puerto Rico’s Macheteros, from Argentina’s Montoneros, to Colombia’s FARC, from the Black Panthers to the IRA and from the PLO to AL Fatah.

He didn’t just train and fund them. He harbored them:

The Black Lives Matter movement has come out in support of Fidel Castro, following his death on Friday, saying they must “come to the defense of El Comandante” and thanking him for safeguarding Assata Shakur, who’s on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list.

The movement penned an article on Sunday titled “Lessons from Fidel: Black Lives Matter and the Transition of El Comandante” on the Medium platform where they eulogized the passing of the Cuban dictator. The article, which was not bylined, was Tweeted out by the closest thing there is to an official Black Lives Matter account and also posted on the movement’s semi-official Facebook page.

After expressing grief and extolling Castro as a role model to emulate,

The movement then thanked the Cuban dictator for hiding criminals and domestic terrorists from the U.S government, such as Michael Finney, Ralph Goodwin, and Charles Hill — who hijacked an airplane from Albuquerque while being sought for the 1972 murder of New Mexico State Trooper Robert Rosenbloom. …

The BLM movement is also “particularly grateful” to Castro for harboring “Mama Assata Shakur, who continues to inspire us.” Shakur, whose real name is Joanne Chesimard, is currently on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list with a $1 million bounty on her head.

Assata Shakur is revered by academics and rioting street trash alike for the cold-blooded murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster during a routine traffic stop.

Castro was a very bad guy, but he’s gone now. His admirers are just as bad, and unfortunately are still with us.

Would do to America what Castro did to Cuba.
