Bush Family Betrayal

Timothy Birdnow

I've always said the Bush family is a bad thing for America, and here is more proof; George W. Bush's daughter Barbara is to be the keynote speaker at a Planned Parenthood event.

According to Gateway Pundit:

"The Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas has announced that Barbara Pierce Bush is going to be the keynote speaker for the 2017 Annual Luncheon according to Planned Parenthood’s website.

Former President George W. Bush’s daughter, Barbara Pierce Bush, is the CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps. In the Mission & Vision section of the GHC website it states that "We believe that every person has the right to live a healthy, dignified life.”

The President of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, and Barbara Pierce Bush have a mutual connection – Hillary Clinton."

End excerpt.

So the younger Bush is on the wrong side here.

Meanwhile, George W. launched an attack on Donald Trump, something he has never been willing to do to either Obama or even Hillary Clinton.

Bush once bragged he redefined the Republican Party. He did; he largely wrecked it. It's time for America's patrician family to fade into that good night.

GIGO-based energy and climate policies

Paul Driessen

Earth’s climate is likely changing somewhere, and human activities may play a role – albeit one that is dwarfed by the powerful natural forces that have always caused climate cycles and fluctuations. It certainly doesn’t justify ceding control over our livelihoods and living standards to politicians, activists and bureaucrats … honoring the unilateral non-treaty treaty that President Obama signed in Paris … continuing to spend well over $1.5 trillion a year on climate and renewable energy programs … or paying any attention to Garbage In/Garbage Out computer models, like the one this article rips apart.

GIGO-based energy and climate policies

It’s like formulating public safety policies using models based on dinosaur DNA from amber

Paul Driessen

Things are never quiet on the climate front.

After calling dangerous manmade climate change a hoax and vowing to withdraw the USA from the Paris agreement, President Trump has apparently removed language criticizing the Paris deal from a pending executive order initiating a rollback of anti-fossil-fuel regulations, to help jumpstart job creation.

Meanwhile, EPA Administration Scott Pruitt says he expects quick action to rescind the Clean Power Plan, a central component of the Obama Era’s war on coal and hydrocarbons. The US House Committee on Science, Space and Technology is reopening its investigation into NOAA’s mishandling or tampering with global temperature data, for a report designed to promote action in Paris in 2015.

Hundreds of scientists signed a letter urging President Trump to withdraw from the UN climate agency. They warn that efforts to curtail carbon dioxide emissions are not scientifically justified and will kill jobs and exacerbate US and international poverty without improving the environment or stabilizing climate.

Hundreds of other scientists told Mr. Trump he must not waver on climate stabilization efforts or make any moves to defund government or university climate research. Hundreds of businessmen and investors told the President failure to build a low-carbon economy puts American prosperity at risk.

Over in Britain, Members of Parliament say efforts to build a low-carbon economy have led to a 58% rise in electricity prices since 2006, sending manufacturing and jobs overseas, to countries that are under no obligation to reduce fossil fuel use or CO2 emissions. MPs are also angry that carefully hidden "green subsidies” will account for nearly one-fourth of sky-high residential electricity bills by 2020. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2940408/furious-peers-urge-ministers-to-come-clean-about-the-true-cost-of-green-levies-pushing-up-household-energy-bills/

All of this is a valuable reminder that the Climate Crisis & Renewable Energy Industry is now a $1.5-trillion-a-year business! And that’s just for its private sector components, the corporate rent-seekers. https://wattsupwiththat.com/2015/08/22/climate-crisis-inc/

This monstrous price tag does not include the Big Green environmentalism industry, the salaries and pensions of armies of federal, state, local, foreign country and UN bureaucrats who create and coordinate climate and renewable energy programs, or the far higher electricity and motor fuel costs that businesses and families must pay, to cover the costs of "saving people and planet from climate ravages.”

Earth’s climate is likely changing somewhere, as it has throughout planetary and human history. Our fuel use and countless other human activities may play a role, at least locally – but their role is dwarfed to near irrelevance by powerful solar, oceanic, cosmic ray and other natural forces. Moreover, real-world ice, sea level, temperature, hurricane, drought and other observations show nothing outside historic fluctuations. Unprecedented disasters exist only in the realm of hypotheses, press releases and computer models.

So there is no reason to cede control over our livelihoods and living standards to politicians, activists and bureaucrats; replace reliable, affordable fossil fuel energy with expensive, unreliable renewables; destroy millions of jobs in the process; and tell billions of impoverished people they must be content with solar ovens, solar panels, wind turbines, and health, nutrition and living standards little better than today’s.

There is no reason to honor the document that President Obama unilaterally signed in Paris. As Dr. Steve Allen observed in a masterful analysis: "The decisive action promised in the treaty that is not a treaty consists of governments, most of them run by dictators and thieves, promising, on an honor system, to take steps of their own choosing, to change future weather patterns, and then coming up with ways by which they can measure their own progress and hold themselves accountable by their own standards for the promises they have made, on penalty of no punishment if they break their word.”

Mainly, Allen continues, the Paris con is about "taking money from taxpayers and consumers and businesspeople and electricity ratepayers, and giving it to crony capitalists; and taking money from people in relatively successful countries and giving it to rich people in poor countries, to benefit governing elites.”

India alone wants hundreds of billions of dollars in climate "adaptation and reparation” money from industrialized nations that are supposed to slash their fossil fuel use, CO2 emissions and economic growth, while pouring trillions into the Green Climate Fund. Meanwhile, India, China and other rapidly developing nations are firing up hundreds of coal-fueled power plants, burning more oil and gas, and emitting more CO2, to industrialize their countries and lift their people out of abject poverty – as well they should. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24020350-miracle-molecule

So just follow the money – and power-grabbing. That is the real source of the religious fervor, the Catechism of Climate Cataclysm, behind the vehement denunciations of President Trump for having the gall to threaten the global high priests who drive and profit from climate change fear mongering.

Those forces are desperate and determined to keep their power and money train on track. They’re ramping up indignation and cranking out "research” to justify their demands. For example:

Expert Market (whose core expertise is helping companies compare prices for postage meters, coffee machines and other B2B products) has just released a study purporting to show which US states will suffer most "from Trump’s climate change denial” and America’s "climate change inaction.”

The total cost will be $506 billion by 2050, just for hurricane and other real estate damages, extra energy costs, and more frequent and severe droughts. "Vermont emerged as the state worst equipped to handle the cost,” the study contends, while Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas are also "severely at risk.” California and New York are among those best able to endure the imminent chaos.

It sounds horrific – and it’s intended to be, the better to pressure the White House and Congress to codify and enforce the nonbinding provisions of the Paris non-treaty, and retain Obama-era anti-hydrocarbon energy policies. But the entire exercise is a classic example of Garbage In/Garbage Out (GIGO) black box computer modeling, carefully crafted to ensure the justifications required for a predetermined political outcome, especially the monumental "nationwide green initiatives” that Expert Market supports.

Thus, carbon dioxide will drive rapidly rising global temperatures that will warm the planet enough to increase sea surface temperatures dramatically – spawning more frequent, more damaging hurricanes, and melting polar ice caps enough to raise sea levels 23 inches by 2050, the Expert Market experts assert.

Global warming measured in hundredths of a degree over the past 19 years will suddenly be replaced by runaway heat waves. Seas now rising at 7 inches per century will suddenly climb at ten times that rate over the next three decades, sending storm surges far inland. Major US land-falling hurricanes that have been absent now for eleven years will suddenly proliferate to unprecedented levels.

How Vermont and the other top-five "worst equipped” states – all of them inland – will be affected by any of this is anyone’s guess. But the model says they’re at risk, so we must take drastic action now.

Soaring temperatures will increase demand for air conditioning, and thus raise household energy costs, says Expert Market. CA, NY and other "green” state electricity costs are already twice as high as those in coal and gas-reliant states. Imposing wind and solar initiatives on fossil fuel states would likely double their family and business energy costs, but that factor is not included in its calculations.

Droughts "will become more frequent and severe” in states already afflicted by arid conditions – assuming all the dire CO2 depredations, and ignoring both those states’ long experience with drought cycles and how California’s years-long drought has once again given way to abundant rainfall.

The Expert Market study is symptomatic of the politicized assumptions and data manipulation that have driven climate models and disaster scenarios since the IPCC began studying manmade climate chaos.

Indeed, the entire climate chaos exercise is akin to basing public safety policies on computer models that assume dinosaur DNA extracted from fossilized amber will soon result in hordes of T rexes running rampant across our land. We deserve a more honest, rational basis for policies that govern our lives.

About that DNC Chair Job...

Jack Kemp

Ellison will be the Number Two guy. Let's see how well he plays with Perez. One good thing about that is that if he's toiling away at the DNC, he won't be screwing up Minnesota politics.

Ellison may want Muslim prayer rooms at DNC headquarters. Perez might want coed bathrooms. This could soon become be a culture clash.

There's an applicable old Yiddish joke about two communist party officials who met at a conference in Prague.

After a while, one guy turns to the other and says, "Well, comrade, I totally agree with you about the new five year plan and I also agree with you on your method building worker solidarity for the revolution. There's only one thing we don't agree on."

"What's that, comrade?"

"Your agricultural policy. You wish me to be in the ground - and I wish you to be in the ground!" (A common Yiddish phrase for - you guessed it - wishing someone dead. In this case, it is a bitter ego fight about political power.)

Repeal Obamacare Now - Erick Ericson

Jack Kemp forwards this:

Repeal Obamacare Now
By Erick Erickson | February 27, 2017, 05:00am | @ewerickson

Republicans in Congress cannot figure out what to do. Some of them are waffling on repealing Obamacare. Congressman Mo Brooks of Alabama says some of his colleagues are getting cold feet because the bussed in Democrat protestors at their townhall meetings are scaring them.

Republicans have campaigned on repealing Obamacare since 2010. This past year, Republicans ran for re-election claiming to have voted for repeal upwards of 70 times. And now they may not even repeal it. If Republicans will not repeal Obamacare after campaigning since 2010 on that promise, they will keep no promise and no one should ever trust the GOP again.

The solution to this problem is simpler than the GOP or the DC press would have you believe. The GOP should repeal Obamacare without a replacement plan. They should make the effective repeal date January 1, 2018. They should begin work on a replacement plan knowing they have a date certain by which it must be done because Obamacare will no longer exist.

If the GOP tries to do repeal and replace together, they are guaranteed not a single Democrat vote. If they repeal Obamacare, they are guaranteed not a single Democrat vote. But once Obamacare is repealed, the GOP has the opportunity to do something the Democrats refused to do in 2009 — work on a bipartisan healthcare plan. But the only way to get Democrats to engage on this issue is to first repeal Obamacare.

Whether Democrats are willing to help or not, however, is besides the point. Republicans have promised for seven years now to repeal Obamacare. They cannot go back on their word now. They promised if they won Congress, they would do it. The won Congress and said they needed the White House. They got everything they wanted. They will now betray the trust of the American people if they do not keep their word. Obamacare still does not have majority popular support in this country. Americans do want it replaced with something else

Elizabeth Warren and Unemployed Veterans


Jack Kemp

The young Marine who runs the charity Backpacks for Life once told me he wanted to stay away from politics. But the problem is that politics won't stay away from U.S. veterans.

The government only has so many spare dollars and empty buildings. If some American government, be it state or federal or local, wants to house some people or ease access to jobs or welfare payments, they have to chose between giving spaces and funding to American citizens, such as veterans - or give the money to sanctuary city protected illegals. A Massachusetts veterans group has criticized Sen. Warren of Mass. for advocation giving things to illegal immigrants over giving those things to veterans. It is getting harder, if not impossible, to seperate veterans issues from other political concerns because there is only so many tax dollars to go around.

I've got one of those old men's "when I was a boy" stories for you. I once promised myself when I was young that I'd never say these words but I can't keep that promise these days, so I limit such remarks to significant issues and pwersonal stories such as the next one.

Nowadays in NY City, newsstands are run by people from overseas, often from Asia or the Middle East. Perhaps not all of the people in those stands are here legally - I didn't check their personal papers so I can't say for sure. When I was a boy, a number of these NY newsstands were run by disabled people, often U.S. war veterans. They were given some license or government ordered priority for those positions. I recall as a kid going to some newsstands in Manhattan which had a blind person owning and operating it. Even before my time, you can sometimes see one in a 1930s movie. I recall a story - but I can't recall the title - where James Cagney played a blind New York City newsstand owner or worker. Even in my childhood, when a NY Post or NY Daily News cost 3 cents or 5 cents and the NY Times perhaps a dime, it was easier for a blind person to feel in their hand that they had gotten the correct payment than today when periodicals cost $1 to $5. Although a blind person could feel the texture of a $1 bill even today, more people now give a newstand worker a $10 bill and want change in this era when a newspaper costs a lot more than pocket change. I recall that there were also people with physical problems like missing fingers working at newsstands. As a kid then, I would never ask them if these were the result of WWII injuries or work accidents or if they were born that way. But I suspect, guess now that they were people from all the types of causes I mention.

The point is, the NY City government used the newsstand business to help people who were locals who needed help. Not anymore. And that change isn't limited to NY City or the Northeast.

I've figured out the new slogan for establishment Democrats and Big Business establishment Republicans concerning this issue.

"We support hiring undocumented immigrants and unscreened refugees. They are doing the work that unemployed or homeless U.S. veterans just aren't willing to do!"

On second thought, they may have to reword that slogan. I'd say rethink but I believe their mind is already made up and they do not want to do any further thinking about this.

On to the veterans complaint with Elizabeth Warren...

http://www.bostonherald.com/news/us_politics/2017/02/veterans_group_blasts_elizabeth_warren

(If you can't read the text with this picture, it says: Vets Blast Liz, Mass. Dems for putting immigrants in U.S. illegally before those who have served. Where's OUR rally?)

A local veterans’ advocacy group is blasting Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and other state Democrats for their support of illegal immigrants, calling it "selfish political theater” and demanding they put veterans’ services at the top of their list — or feel the heat.

"We’d like to see our leaders re-examine their priorities, put this at the forefront — if we have to, we’ll knock on some doors in D.C.,” said John MacDonald of Veterans Assisting Veterans. "We need to take care of veterans first before we decide to take care of people who are illegally here.”


In a two-page open letter to "all Americans,” the group — which has funded all-terrain wheelchairs for local vets as well as horse therapy at Ironstone Farm in Andover — slams the "selfish blatant ignorance of the politicians that have chosen illegal immigrants over US Veterans” and calls for readers to support VAV’s cause.

The letter also targets U.S. Sen. Edward Markey, U.S. Reps. Michael Capuano and Seth Moulton — an Iraq war veteran — and Mayor Martin J. Walsh for failing to speak out about veteran homelessness and health care problems, specifically calling out Warren and her "misguided antics.”

"Senator Warren and others like her should know the difference between legal and illegal activity and chose instead to act out negatively in selfish political theater,” the letter reads. "Where’s your rally for US Veterans, Senator Warren?”
VAV member Dennis Moschella, who co-wrote the letter, said the group’s goal is to inspire the public to demand more action on veterans’ issues from the congressional delegation.

"We want every veteran, every family member, to start making calls, put them on the spot,” Moschella said. "We want to know how Warren, Markey, Capuano stand on this issue.”

The only Republican the letter singles out is Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain, a Vietnam War POW — who "has seemed to forget about his fellow veterans and the deep troubles at the VA.”

Trump Taking Down Sex Traffickers

Timothy Birdnow

In the most underreported story of the year the Trump Administration has been aggressively attacking human sex trafficking networks.

According to Zero Hedge:

"While the mainstream media's attention has been fixed on political drama in Washington D.C., federal and state law enforcement have been quietly working to dismantle a shockingly large number of human trafficking and child abuse networks across the United States. The busts in America come at the same time as a number of other successful international law enforcement operations against networks engaging in human trafficking of women and children.


Since the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20th, 2017, the number of trafficking arrests for human trafficking in 2017 have doubled the total numbers provided for the entire year of 2014 by the Department of Justice."

End excerpt.

He author goes on to list the numerous arrests made nationwide, including the son of Jerry Sandusky, the disgraced football coach at Penn State.

A question; would a Clinton Administration have aggressively pursued this, since Bill Clinton took 26 flights aboard convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's "lolita express" to "slave island"?

While I don't ascribe to the theory that people like John Podesta were involved in child trafficking via Washington's Comet Ping Pong Pizza, I do know that those who followed the story said Trump was going to clean up the vile sex trafficking trade, and he appears to want to do so.

Sex trafficking is one of the most evil practices on this Earth, and there should be no tolerance for it. It destroys not just the lives of the girls (or boys) involved but of their families, their parents and siblings and all those who care about them. It is a monstrous, vile activity and should be a high priority for law enforcement. The media should laud Mr. trump for going after this, even if they despise the man himself.

There has been a move to move to remove the taboo from child sexual abuse, and the media, ever quick to support anything it can remotely consider "the underdog", is a bit lukewarm where this issue is concerned (unless a Republican is caught doing it.) I suspect many in the media see this as just some overzealous law enforcement going after "free spirited" people. I may be being ungenerous to them here, but it is true that the media is always on the side of hedonism and socially disruptive behavior. At any rate, the fact is this campaign by the Administration is something to be lauded by any reasonable measure. That the fake news media cannot bring themselves to even report this is abominable, and proof of Trump's accusation that the media is the enemy of the American People.

Warty Day of Rage; Witches to Curse Trump

Timothy Birdnow

Witches, warlocks, voodoo priestesses, wizards, shaman, and other asundry black magic practitioners are planning a worldwide day of cursing of Dnald Trump and his supporters.

Yes, the world's pagans are planning a day of rage against The Donald, with chicken bones a-flyin' and hexes a-poppin. Gross stuff will probably be consumed from big boiling kettles. Wierd pseudo-language will be employed. All with the ultimate goal of placing a "binding spell" on the Trumpster and his EEEVVILL minions. If Mr. Trump were wise he would choose his morning cereal from the high-fiber end of the scale; and maybe add a few prunes! Getting bound up is no fun!

According to the U.K. Sun:

"The magic man behind scheme revealed a rituals will take place at Trump HQ in New York, LA, Baltimore, Portugal, South Africa and other spots around the globe.

Even witches in Cornwall are being urged to join in.

"The cast will bind him,” said Baltimore magician Michael M. Hughes. "It’s meant to restrain him from harming civil liberties, immigrants etc.

"It’s not meant to harm him but to make it impossible for him to keep harming the country.”

Hughes has posted instructions for inducing the spell on a Facebook page called Bind Trump."

End excerpt.

I don't know where they get this nonsense; Trump hasn't harmed a fly. He is not "harming immigrants" as he is simply enforcing U.S. law and they aren't immigrants but illegal invading aliens. But I supposed one doesn't expect a lot of rationality from someone who believes he can fly on a broom.

The reality is that this is just another skirmish in an old war between the forces of superstition and Christianity, with those who appeal (wittingly or not) to the powers of Satan. Oh, most witches call themselves Nature worshippers, and they practice Man's oldest religion - a religion that was inspired not by God but by that other fellow. And strangely enough paganism is growing at a time when environmentalism is rising. coincidence?

Trump himself doesn't matter. If this were Mitt Romney or John McCain they would be doing the same thing. This is about an old grudge with the followers of Christ and of Yahweh.

Look; paganism is fun. It is about joy and sex and illustions of false power. The Judeo-Christian heritage is a killjoy, because it says we are fallen, bad eggs in need of redemption. We have rules that must be followed. We have consequences if they are not. All of these things cut into the enjoyment of life, or at least some people believe. So there has been animostiy against The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for a long time. Modern liberals hate Judeo-Christian values as much as these throwback pagans, and for the same reason; they want to be free to be and live as they choose. That was the same sickness that infected Lucifer in the beginning.

And so what we may see as the silly season is in full swing, with self-styled magical artists playing neopagan spiritual games. And while it's good to laugh at this goofiness, it must be remembered that it is a symptom of a serious spiritual malady, one that will cost at least these people their immortal souls if they don't wake up. Life is hard for a reason; it is not our destination but a weigh station on our spiritual journey, and the hardness of life is intended to force us to lookk at ourselves and reform. Playing at magic and sorcery may be a lot of fun but it ultimately drags those who follow that routedown to Hell. Hell isn't full of monstrous people; it's full of idiiots who rejected the One True God for their own amusement. In the end everybody gets what they choose.

Oh, and these guys have got to be nuts to try to bind Trump up further; the man barely smiles now. He's really going to scowle after days of constipation...

Perez to be Dem Chairman

Dana Mathewson

Well, here's the story. Former Labor Sec. Perez elected as Democratic National Committee chairman.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/02/25/former-labor-sec-perez-elected-as-democratic-national-committee-chairman.html


Former Labor Secretary Tom Perez on Saturday was elected chairman of the Democratic National Committee, defeating top-rival Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, in their respective bids to chart the direction of the national party.

I see they're talking as if the re-organization of the Party's just a week or two away, and they're gonna be Top Dog again in a few months. That remains to be seen, of course.

It DOES say that Ellison will be the Number Two guy. Let's see how well he plays with Perez. One good thing about that is that if he's toiling away at the DNC, he won't be screwing up Minnesota politics.

Evidence of the Chaotic Solar System

Dana Mathewson

To folks with whom I occasionally discuss "Global Warming" or "climate change," here's a fascinating article I just found. For once, we aren't the bad guys. I quote a few paragraphs following:

Plumbing a 90 million-year-old layer cake of sedimentary rock in Colorado, a team of scientists from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and Northwestern University has found evidence confirming a critical theory of how the planets in our solar system behave in their orbits around the sun.

The finding, published Feb. 23, 2017 in the journal Nature, is important because it provides the first hard proof for what scientists call the "chaotic solar system,” a theory proposed in 1989 to account for small variations in the present conditions of the solar system. The variations, playing out over many millions of years, produce big changes in our planet’s climate — changes that can be reflected in the rocks that record Earth’s history.

The discovery promises not only a better understanding of the mechanics of the solar system, but also a more precise measuring stick for geologic time. Moreover, it offers a better understanding of the link between orbital variations and climate change over geologic time scales.

[...]

In the context of the solar system, the phenomenon occurs when two orbiting bodies periodically tug at one another, as occurs when a planet in its track around the sun passes in relative proximity to another planet in its own orbit. These small but regular ticks in a planet’s orbit can exert big changes on the location and orientation of a planet on its axis relative to the sun and, accordingly, change the amount of solar radiation a planet receives over a given area. Where and how much solar radiation a planet gets is a key driver of climate.

Guys, I hope I have whetted your appetite to read the whole thing! It's at http://news.wisc.edu/from-rocks-in-colorado-evidence-of-a-chaotic-solar-system/

And there's nothing about Carbon Dioxide, SUV's, or any of that stuff in it!

Cheers!

The Naked Neck; Live Giraffe Birth Censored from Internet for Nudity

Dana Mathewson

OMG!

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/23/live-stream-giraffe-birth-temporarily-pulled-from-youtube-over-nudity-sexual-content.html

Millions of people have been watching and waiting with anticipation to witness the birth of a baby giraffe at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, NY.

A NOTE FROM TIM:

It occurs to me this is part of the move to blur the lines between human and animal. This has been going on, with Spain granting certain "human rights" to Chimpanzees and other such things. There is an anthropomorphizing of the animal kingdom in order to relegate Man to animal status - and thus make both our lives and our freedoms something granted by the State and not Natural Law.  If we are nothing but animals we have no rights. Acting as if  animal nudity is the same as human is another effort to turn Man into just another of the great apes - and perhaps not even the greatest of them.

Obama's Children's Hour

Dana Mathewson

No comment necessary.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/02/23/obama-revamp-federal-bureaucracy-created-widespread-security-policies-violations-watchdog-says.html

One of former President Barack Obama’s pet projects -- to drag federal bureaucracy into the digital age -- morphed into a rogue operation that disregarded information security policies, according to a watchdog report.

End

A NOTE FROM TIM:

Yep. If nothing else it means young people running the show, and they haven't had the years of maturation needed to understand the security issue. It was the Children's Hour.

Snowden was a great example of that; he had top clearance despite being a young guy because he was so tech savvy. Never should have happened; he wasn't ready. But to be good at this stuff you have to be young, which means you have to be immature in other ways.

What Defines Insanity?

Timothy Birdnow

A quick thought; when a man declares he is Napoleon Bonapart we send the men with the nets and straight jackets to cart him away. He is possibly a damger to himself or others. But when a man says he is a 6 year old girl we extend legal protections to him and let him go to the bathroom with real 6 year old girls, lest we damage his self-esteem.

What's wrong with this picture?

Where is the Footage of the Desecration of a Jewish Cemetary in University City?

Timothy Birdnow

A few days ago vandals desecrated a Jewish cemetary in University City, a suburb of St. Louis. The community was outraged, and even the Muslim community got into the act, launching a crowdfunding page and raising a lot of money to help pay for the cleanup. In many ways this foul deed has brought out the best in St. Louis, with a vigil and cleanup effort attended by people from all walks of life. In some ways it was a beautiful thing.

But I have some questions.

First, the police announced they have surveillance video that they have to review. Hmmm. If that is the case, why is it taking them so long to review it? Seems to me they would have their answer fairly quickly if the video caught anything, which it would do if this were just kids being jerks. The slow response makes me very suspicious.

Why am I suspicious? Well, whenever there is a crime involving black on white the police never, ever call it a hate crime, no matter if the perpetrators were hurling racial insults. This has become standard operating proceedure, because the police have surrendered to political correctness and either do not believe black people can be racist or are afraid of some mythical white backlash. I ask; when was the last time a white mob lynched a black guy in America? It used to happen but we have not seen any of that for decades. The fact is, the left wing does not want black on white crime publicized, so horrible acts perpetrated against whites go unreported by the media.

I know this cemetary; it is on the north side of U.City, along the MLK/St. Charles Rock Road corridore. This is a predominantly black area, and it has been so for a long time. Oh, and it lies in what I consider the "Black Lives Matter Corridore" because much of the BLM activity went on in this north west strip of territory, between the City of St. Louis, Ferguson, and the small municipalities adjacent to the city.

So, were these kids who did this, or were they adult men or women? What was their race? Why isn't the media reporting any of this?

Was this an act of Black Lives Matter? Given the anti-Semitism of BLM I suspect that is the case. If not then why doesn't the media report on this right away? I have little doubt the police know what happened but are looking for a correct political response.

Another question; a few years ago vandals desecrated Calvary Cemetary, the huge Catholic cemetary in north St. Louis. This was the second attack in three years. Now, I have relatives buried in Calvary, and so had a personal stake in that. But the press was largely silent on this event at the time, with just a mumbling about it. Bear in mind, 2012 was the Golden Age of Obama, a time when His Majesty ruled over peace and plenty. So, why was the media so unconcerned when it was an act against Catholics, but is now making a big deal out of it since it affects Jewish folk?

It should be a big deal, mind you, but on both counts.

Well, it is my opinion that this is getting attention because there is an attempt to make supporters of Donald Trump appear to be anti-Semitic. Trump is repeatedly compared to Adolf Hitler, even though he is far more supportive of Israel than Obama ever was and has dealt with Jewish folks through his entire career, unlike Mr. Obama who dedicated his life to the black grievance industry.

The media is gleefully reporting that that old bigot Donald Trump is laughing off the rising anti-Semitism, largely because his mind numbed robot followers are the bigots and haters. See, it fits a meme they have been promoting for decades that claims conservatives are hate filled monsters who will build Nazi-style death camps as soon as they have the power, and that Jews had better be afraid, very afraid!

Well, a larger percentage of Jewish people voted Trump than they did for other GOP candidates, and the Left cannot allow the Jewish vote to turn Republican, so efforts must be made to split the Jewish community from those evil Republicans. And of course Trump delende est, so this is a no-brainer.

The impression must be made that the desecraters of this cemetary were Trumpeters.

But is that the case?

Certainly there have been innumerable fake hate crimes perpetrated by the "victims" to blood-libel conservative whites, and there is every reason to suspect this desecration of a Jewish cemetary may be another act of an agent-provocateur. (See a database of fake hate crimes here.) Even if this comes out in the media eventually that black people did it, the report will be on page 16, and the spectacular reporting at first leaves the impression of der Fuehrer rising. That is the whole point. The Fake News Media has perfected this technique.

And the media has to know that Black Lives Matter has embraced anti-Semitism in a number of ways. They support the Palestinians in their efforts to drive Israel into the sea. They have engaged with terrorists. And Black Lives Matter was largely born a couple of miles from the desecrated cemetary.

But the media remains silent on all this, and we have yet to find out who exactly desecrated the cemetary.

Why is it taking so long if there was security camera footage?

You and I both know why.

I have little doubt this footage shows adult black males toppling those headstones, and the police do not want to touch that - and the media doesn't want to report that. Much better to leave the impression that green-toothed hillbillies with "make America great Again" bumper stickers were the culprits.

America has become a hanitation of demons and every unclean bird. The news media is completely corrupt, to the absolute core. Kids go into journalism these days not to report the news but to lead a revolution, and their professors teach them how to be activists, not unbiased chroniclers. The news media has become worse than Pravda during the Soviet days; one has to read between the lines to actually get the news. And they have the gall to call Breitbart "fake news"!! There is nothing reported by our mainstream media that is not politically motivated.

And they want to murder the conservative baby in utero.

So they will lie, even committ such a monstrous slander as this, to advance their cause.

Well, we are still waiting for the truth.

Ignoring African Muslim Slavery

Ellison Ignores Africans Enslaved in Muslim Lands

Despite the fact that Keith Ellison spent only a short time with the Nation of Islam, he seems to share with NOI’s leader, Louis Farrakhan, a disturbing conundrum: How, as a black man who is a Muslim, and a potential political leader of American liberalism, does he relate to today’s black slaves in bondage in Muslim lands -- in Sudan, Mauritania and Nigeria?
The answer, it seems with Ellison as with Farrakhan, is to ignore or deny the facts and abandon the slaves.
Indeed, Ellison’s model seems to be Louis Farrakhan, who was caught in a vicious fight over Sudanese slaves a little over two decades ago.
Short version: In 1994, an African Muslim from Mauritania –– Mohammed Athie –– and I broke the story of a modern-day slave trade in Mauritania and Sudan, in The New York Times. We reported that "perhaps 300,000” African Muslims were still serving Arab and Berber masters.
"Black Africans in Mauritania were converted to Islam more than 100 years ago,” we wrote, "but while the Koran forbids the enslavement of fellow Muslims, in this country race outranks religious doctrine. These people are chattel: used for labor, sex, and breeding. They may be exchanged for camels, trucks, guns or money. Their children are the property of the master.”

Take Back Gore's Nobel & Give It To The Frackers

Take Back Al Gore's Nobel And Give It To The Fracking Industry

Climate Change: U.S. output of so-called greenhouse gases continues to decline, a new report shows. Even so, global warming activists are likely to be disappointed. The drop has nothing to do with their pet cause, alternative energy.
That's right. The Environmental Protection Agency's yearly greenhouse gas emissions report noted that after rising slightly in 2013 and 2014, greenhouse gas output fell in 2015 — the most recent full year for which data are available.
OK, but maybe it was a one-year fluke? Hardly.
First off, the drop was significant in size — 2.2% on an annual basis, far too big to be a fluke or statistical anomaly.
Second, as the folks at The American Interest helpfully point out, "U.S. energy-related CO2 emissions hit a 25-year low over the first six months of 2016, continuing the progress that the EPA says we made in 2015."
So it's continuing. More important, The Hill reminds, "The EPA attributed the overall decline to lower carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels, which itself came about because of less coal consumption in favor of natural gas, warmer winter weather that decreased heating fuel demand and lower electricity demand overall."
This continues a long-term trend for the U.S. of lower greenhouse gas emissions. Ironically, while the U.S. was pilloried for not ratifying the Tokyo Accord (though then-Vice President Al Gore ostentatiously signed it, despite knowing that the Senate wouldn't ratify it) to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, it is the only major industrial nation actually slashing its output.
Since the Kyoto Accord was struck in 1997, Energy Department data show, U.S. output of greenhouse gases plunged 7.3%, even though real U.S. GDP over that time has grown a whopping 52%. We're greener today than we have been in decades.
Go figure.
For all this progress, we can thank the fracking business, which has given U.S. industry and homes access to massive amounts of cheap, relatively clean natural gas. It may yet make possible a U.S. industrial renaissance — and bring back jobs now done overseas, not by government trade protectionism but by pursuing free-market energy policies that will lead to ever more energy at lower prices.
Global warming crusader Al Gore won a Nobel Prize merely for his profit-making activities as a green activist. Here's an idea: If the Nobel committee geniuses really want to reward those who've done the most to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, they should give Gore's Nobel to the U.S. fracking industry.
