Want to know something scary? She may be the next president.

An opinion from Larry Snyder of Cicero, Illinois.


Where are the black fathers in Baltimore? They don‘t exist. I saw black mothers in the streets. I saw black male teens rioting in the streets. But no black fathers trying to keep their kids off the streets and away from violence. The real issue is that the welfare state has destroyed the black family. The protestors should be carrying signs that say “Black Fathers Matter.”

Did you see that heroic mother screaming at and hitting her own son to keep him from joining the mob? She did what any mother would do to save her son’s life… or prevent him from going to jail and ruining his life. But where was her husband while her son was about to ruin his life? Where was the father? The grandfather? There are no adult men in this tragic and dysfunctional picture.

Where is Obama? Our nation’s first black president was silent that whole first day as blacks tore apart a major America city. He’s quick to weigh in and assign blame every time one black kid gets shot by a white cop. But not a word when thousands of blacks rampage and terrorize a city? Not a word about black-on-black crime, rioting, looting, burning or murder?

Sure he weighed in the next day from the safety of the Rose Garden. But only when he had no choice- he was cornered by journalists who demanded a comment. But he was a day late and a dollar short.

Why wasn’t he “boots on the ground” at the scene. After all Baltimore is in his backyard. He could almost walk from the White House. He got almost 90 percent of the black vote just two years ago from those very neighborhoods. He has plenty of time to go golfing. But no time to walk a major American city, in his own backyard, that is burning at the hands of his own people?

Where is the black mayor of Baltimore? She clearly ordered police to stand down, make no arrests, stop no crimes while her city was being destroyed, while the businesses she is sworn to protect were being looted and burned. She clearly said days before the riots went ballistic that she wanted to create a “space for those who want to destroy.” Then she blamed the media for merely repeating her words verbatim.

What’s the excuse of the day? The excuse in the past was blacks felt powerless with white politicians and white police in charge. Well Baltimore is under 100 percent black and Democrat control. You mean blacks feel powerless with a black mayor, black city council, black police chief and minority-majority police force (meaning the police are made up of a majority of people of color). When do the excuses end? When do you stop blaming others?

Where are the black leaders?
Where’s Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? They all had a week to see what was happening. When the mayor locked the fans in the Baltimore Orioles stadium on Friday night for their own protection, it was pretty clear sign trouble was coming! Yet not a peep out of Al or Jesse. And no preparation by government to prevent rioting.

Here’s a good question: Where is our government when taxpayers need protection? I saw a store owner on the national news two nights ago. Her store was a fixture in that Baltimore neighborhood for 30 years. Now it’s destroyed. All her goods stolen. Her employees laid off. So what good is government if they can’t even protect a store owner and taxpayer?

I’m a Libertarian conservative. I’m not a fan of government. I think government is a mixture of incompetence, evil and thievery. The perfect storm. There’s only one thing I believe government is there for- protecting our lives and property from criminals and foreign enemies. That’s it. And they can’t even do that.
That store owner paid property taxes for 30 years and the city stood by while her livelihood was destroyed. What a joke. What fraud. She deserves an instant refund of all 30 years of her property taxes?

The mafia demands 10 percent for protection money from a business owner… then they protect us. Government calls that fraud. They put the mafia in jail for that. They call it extortion.

But government demands 50 percent of our money, then they stand by and they don’t even protect us. They stand by and allow criminals to loot and burn our businesses. Guess what? I choose the mafia. It’s a much better deal!

How about the war on poverty? How’s that worked out for black America? The longest and most expensive war in American history has been in place since LBJ and inner cities like Baltimore look exactly the same. Same poverty. Same hopelessness. Same anger and violence. Same rioting and blame and excuses. After $22 trillion has been spent — more (by far) than all the wars in the history of America combined, the results are… nothing. Not a damn thing has changed.

Here’s a question for black America? How has having the first black president helped your cause? With black unemployment double that of whites, who is to blame? With the economy on death watch and 0 percent GDP growth, who’s to blame? With the workforce participation rate at modern day lows for blacks, who’s to blame? With more than 100 million Americans on welfare checks of some kind, who’s to blame? With black poverty at modern day highs under a black president, who’s to blame?

I heard ultra-liberal (and pathetically politically correct) CNN analyst Sally Kohn blame white America today. She wished white America would be half as outraged over “police violence” as they are over the rioting.

Well I have a message for Sally Kohn: I wish black Americans would be half as outraged over black-on-black violence, black-on-black murders, black gangs, black drug dealers, black looting, black burning of black small businesses and black rioting as they are about one white cop killing one black kid.
And one more thought for Sally and liberals like her…

What has 50 years of black rule, liberal welfare and entitlement policies, excuses and blame towards white people done for black Americans in inner cities like Baltimore and Detroit? Where’s the progress in those cities under 100 percent Democrat politicians and policies?

The sighting of a white Republican on the streets of cities like Detroit and Baltimore is just a rumor. There were no Republicans or white people among the local leaders at the podium in Baltimore yesterday with the mayor. On that stage was 100 percent black leadership. Yet urban inner cities like Baltimore and Detroit are in ruins.

It’s time to take personal responsibility. Slavery was a long, long, long time ago.

It’s time to fight for jobs, not welfare. It’s time to look It’s time to move on, within yourselves. It’s time to stop blaming others. It’s time to blame black fathers. It’s time to blame black leaders. It’s time to blame a black president. It’s time to ask what the Democratic Party has ever done for you except ensure you’re helpless, hopeless and dependent on government to survive. It’s time to blame the war on poverty.

It’s time for black Americans to blame black Americans.

Facing a scandal that threatens to capsize her quest to return to the White House, Hillary Clinton debuted her first major policy speech since the official launch of her current campaign. Clinton focused on a call to end “mass incarceration” in America and denounced racial injustice in the legal system, but her focus was on the question of “trust” saying “we must urgently rebuild the bonds of trust and respect among Americans. …Restoring trust in our politics, our press, our markets.” That’s a pretty tall order for a woman who is now widely distrusted by the American electorate and facing accusations that she and her husband raked in part of their massive fortune through payola from people doing business with her State Department. Remember the last time Clinton spoke in so public a setting in New York, she was explaining that she had destroyed 31,000 emails from her time in office.

It’s quite a switch for Clinton to join President Obama and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., in anti-imprisonment crusade. Clinton has long heralded the tough-on-crime policies of her husband’s administration – laws credited with helping to end the bloody drug turf wars of the 1990s but blamed for a booming black prison population. Under the Clinton administration, federal prosecutors stepped up drug prosecutions and today, and today most federal inmates are behind bars for drug offenses. Facing pressure from her left and a skeptical black electorate, Clinton had no trouble making the reversal.

Clinton swung hard on the subject and seemed to score – at least with reporters. One called her speech “truly remarkable” and another called it “compelling.” But how about the issue of moral authority? Clinton is no doubt right that Americans, and not just black Americans, have lost confidence in the basic institutions of the Republic. What is unclear is how a woman who has been at the core of the bipartisan establishment for decades and is embroiled in what is only the latest corruption scandal of her long career can credibly claim the mantle of change. The candidate who is famous for shady dealing and intense secrecy doesn’t sound like the one to make the pitch for reform.


Hookers for Hillary

An Audience With The Queen

http://wp.production.patheos.com/blogs/standingonmyhead/files/2015/04/Hillary-Queen.jpg
As you know, my dear people, the last year for me has been an annus horribilus.  The Royal House of Clinton has been tormented by questions about our handling of finances and subjected to tiresome questions about the tragic events in Benghazi–in the furthest regions of our empire. And, sadly, also questions about my Royal e-mails.
 
Nevertheless, I will not be daunted in my desire and commitment to serve you the people. For the next seventeen months I will be traveling among you as one of you, to listen to your deepest longings and needs. I will be with you in your Wal-Mart and beside you in your Burger Kings. I will drive with you down the busy interstate highways of our land sharing your poverty and needs with you.
 
How well I remember the days when the Duke of Arkansas and I were impoverished. After we were expelled from our Washington Palace we hardly had two mansions to rub together. We were so poor we had to remove thousands of dollars of china, flatware, carpets and gifts from the Washington Palace just to survive. Now, happily, benefactors from around our empire have given just enough for us to scrape by.
 
During those difficult times we had to cut back when our daughter was married. We only had three million dollars to spend on her wedding and I remember our hopes as she moved into her $10 million Manhattan apartment that one day she would be able to move on from that humble abode to something more fitting. So as I travel across our land to meet you all, I will be listening and sharing with you. Then when the time for the royal election comes I know you will crown me as your rightful monarch so that we can all live happily ever after.

Convention  Planning for Obama's FAREWELL ADDRESS !!

THE "F" WORD: COULD CONGRESS ACTUALLY BECOME FUNCTIONAL?


Budgets are moving ahead on schedule. The annual charade of blocking Clinton-era cuts to Medicare has officially ended. And now, lawmakers have actually asserted their clout on foreign policy for the first time in memory. Forcing the president to back down on his bid to circumvent Congress with his plan to lift sanctions on Iran may not sound like the biggest deal in the world. And there certainly is a large trap door built into the back of the plan that would give the president an ample opportunity to slip congressional oversight in the end. But for a president who started out with a plan to flout Congress using executive power and the UN to end up acceding to congressional review is something of a signal moment. It’s more significant given the fact that Congress has so consistently, miserably failed to take any action on foreign policy despite years of bitter criticism and invective.

This matters for a couple of reasons. First, it could shape the way other initiatives are handled. Now that rebellious Democrats have found that the president will cave on key issues, they will keep pushing. The administration has backed off before, but succumbing to open defiance from the minority leader in waiting, Chuck Schumer, and others will invite further intra-party brigandage. And Obama, legacy-minded as always, may see newfound merit in achievement over ideological purity and ego protection. If congressional Republicans have sufficiently sorted out – or put on hiatus – their various blood feuds to avoid successive collapses over the next 18 months, Washington could stand in a very different light. And that could shape the political narrative for 2016. Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has a campaign message predicated on making Washington work again. So how would she fare if Washington was (kinda) working?

There’s no chance for sweetness, light and grand bargains, but if Washington has found its way to something that actually works, it would be a miracle. After a decade of intensifying dysfunction, even basic operation would be welcome to most voters. That would likely help the ratings of both parties. The less Washington makes America think about it, the better America likes Washington. And that could deprive Clinton of her self-designated role as the technocratic leader born to make government work again. That could also give the eventual Republican nominee a better chance to avoid the label as an extremist or hostage taker.

BROOMSTICK ONE

LOOK THESE UP IN THE BOOKS AND PAGE NUMBERS CITED IF YOU WISH. EIGHT QUOTES FROM DIFFERENT BOOKS


Hillary’s actual words:
(1) "Where is the Goddamn flag? I want the Goddamn fucking flag up every morning at fucking sunrise.
From the book "Inside the White House" by Ronald Kessler, p. 244 Hillary to staff at the Arkansas Governor's mansion on Labor Day 1991.

(2) “Fuck off! It's enough I have to see you shit-kickers every day! I'm not going to talk to you, too!! Just do your Goddamn job and keep your mouth shut."

From the book "America Evita" by Christopher Anderson, p.90; Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with "Good Morning. "

(3) "If you want to remain on this detail, get your fucking ass over here and grab those bags!"
From the book "The First Partner" p. 259; Hillary to a Secret Service Agent who was reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands
free in case of an incident.

(4) "Stay the fuck back, stay the fuck back away from me! Don't come within ten yards of me, or else! Just fucking do as I say, Okay!!?"
From the book "Unlimited Access" by Clinton ’s FBI Agent-in-Charge, Gary Aldridge, p. 139; Hillary is screaming at her Secret Service detail.

(5) "Where's the miserable cock sucker?" (otherwise known as “Bill Clinton”)

From the book "The Truth about Hillary" by Edward Klein, p.5; Hillary shouting at a Secret Service officer.

(6) "You fucking idiot"
From the book "Crossfire" ~p. 84; Hillary to a State Trooper who was driving her to an event.

(7) "Put this on the ground! I left my sunglasses in the limo. I need those fucking sunglasses! We need to go back!
From the book "Dereliction of Duty" p. 71-72; Hillary to Marine One helicopter pilot to turn back while enroute to Air Force One.

(8) "Come on Bill, put your dick up! You can't fuck her here!!"
From the book "Inside the White House" by Ronald Kessler, p. 243; Hillary to Gov. Bill Clinton when she spots him talking with an attractive female

This ill-tempered, violent, loud-mouth, hateful, and abusive woman wants to be your next President and have total control as Commander and Chief of our military, the very military for which she has shown incredible disdain throughout her public life.

Remember her most vile comment about Benghazi: “what difference at this point does it make?”
Remember what class Laura and George W. Bush brought to the White House and how they treated the Secret Service detail and the military. They even spent some Christmas holidays at Camp David instead of the Texas ranch so the Secret Service detail could spend the holidays with their families.

Now it is clear why the crew of "Marine One" helicopter nick-named the craft "Broomstick ONE" !

You might want to watch.

What would you expect with the Obama "Open Borders" obsession.?

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton will appear on "America's Newsroom with Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum" on the Fox News Channel during the 10 am ET hour tomorrow morning, Wednesday, April 15, regarding today's exclusive report from Judicial Watch that ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is about eight miles from the U.S. border, in an area known as "Anapra," situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same Judicial Watch sources confirm.

Sincerely,
The Judicial Watch Team

Take a 3 Minute break.

After we have had 6 years of erosion of our FREEDOMS, invasion of our privacy, the rape of our international respect, the waste of thousands of our freedom fighters, and the destruction of our economy you might want to do all you can to pull the chain and flush ANY remnants of the current democratic politically  flavored administration.  Hillary is nothing more than a remnant of the most destructive President we have ever had to endure.

Six examples of government waste from this year’s budget-hawk reports

Congress faces a deadline Wednesday for approving a unified 2016 budget, and lawmakers from both parties are looking for ways to trim the $18 trillion federal debt to varying degrees.
At least two reports this year have highlighted perceived waste that the government could address as it tries to reduce spending.
Citizens Against Government Waste released its annual “Prime Cuts” report this month, recommending programs that the government could eliminate for some $648 billion in savings next year.

This one gets to whisper in the kings ear many times a day. I’d like to draw your attention to the small print next to Valerie’s name....while attending Stanford University.

VALERIE JARRETT - The Top Muslim in the Top Power Seat - Obama's TOP ADVISO
R



Yes ladies and gentlemen, THIS is Obama's top adviser. Seems as if his promise to fundamentally change America is in full swing.
               
                                                          Had enough yet?


THE SHRINKING AARP IS LOSING PLENTY OF SENIORS.

AARP'S FALL FROM GRACE.

The lady who wrote this letter below not only has a grasp of the situation, but also an incredible command of the English language. Her letter was sent to Mr. Rand who is the Executive Director of AARP.  It only takes a few days on the Internet and this message will have reached 75% of the public in the U.S.A.

Dear Mr. Rand,

Recently you sent us a letter encouraging us to renew our lapsed membership in AARP by the requested date.  This isn't what you were looking for, but it is the most honest response I can give you.  Our coverage gap is a microscopic symptom of the real problem, a deepening lack of faith.  While we have proudly maintained our membership for years and long admired the AARP goals and principles, regrettably, we can no longer endorse its abdication of our values.  Your letter stated that we can count on AARP to speak up for our rights, yet the voice we hear is not ours!

Your offer of being kept up to date on important issues through DIVIDED WE FAIL presents neither an impartial view nor the one we have come to embrace.  We do believe that when two parties agree all the time on everything presented to them, one is probably not necessary.  But, when the opinions and long term goals are diametrically opposed, the divorce is imminent.  This is the philosophy which spawned our 200 years of government.

Once upon a time, we looked forward to being part of the senior demographic.  We also looked to AARP to provide certain benefits and give our voice a power we could not possibly hope to achieve on our own.  AARP once gave us a sense of belonging which we no longer enjoy.  The Socialist politics practiced by the Obama Regime and empowered by AARP serves only to raise the blood pressure my medical insurance strives to contain.  Clearly a conflict of interest there!  We do not understand the AARP posture, feel greatly betrayed by the guiding forces that we expected to map out our senior years and leave your ranks with a great sense of regret.  We mitigate that disappointment with the relief of knowing that we are not contributing to the problem anymore by renewing our membership.  There are numerous other organizations which offer discounts without threatening our way of life or offending our sensibilities and values.

This Obama Regime scares the living daylights out of us.  Not just for ourselves, but for our proud and bloodstained heritage.  But more importantly for our children and grandchildren.  Washington has rendered Soylent Green a prophetic cautionary tale rather than a nonfiction scare tactic.  I have never endorsed any militant or radical groups, yet now I find myself listening to them.  I don't have to agree with them to appreciate the fear which birthed their existence.  Their borderline insanity presents little more than a balance to the voice of the Socialist Mindset in power.  Perhaps I became American by a great stroke of luck in some cosmic uterine lottery, but in my adulthood I CHOOSE to embrace it and nurture the freedoms it represents as well as the responsibilities.

Your web site generously offers us the opportunity to receive all communication in Spanish.  ARE YOU KIDDING???  The illegal perpetrators have broken into our 'house', invaded our home without invitation or consent.  The President insists we keep these illegal perpetrators in comfort and learn the perpetrator's language so we can communicate our reluctant welcome to them.  I DON'T choose to welcome them, to support them, to educate them, to medicate them, or to pay for their food or clothing.  American home invaders get arrested.  Please explain to me why foreign lawbreakers can enjoy privileges on American soil that Americans do not get?  Why do some immigrants have to play the game to be welcomed and others only have to break and enter to be welcomed?

We travel for a living.  Walt hauls horses all over this great country, averaging over 10,000 miles a month when he is out there.  He meets more people than a politician on caffeine overdose.  Of all the many good folks he enjoyed on this last 10,000 miles, this trip yielded only ONE supporter of the current Regime.  One of us is out of touch with mainstream America.  Since our poll is conducted without funding, I have more faith in it than ones that are driven by a need to yield AMNESTY (aka-make voters out of the foreign lawbreakers so they can vote to continue the governments free handouts).  This addition of 10 to 20 million voters who then will vote to continue Socialism will OVERWHELM our votes to control the government's free handouts.  It is a "slippery slope" we must not embark on!

As Margaret Thatcher (former Prime Minister of Great Britain) once said "Socialism is GREAT - UNTIL you run out of other people's money".

We have decided to forward this to everyone on our mailing list, and will encourage them to do the same.  With several hundred in my address book, I have every faith that the eventual exponential factor will make a credible statement to you.  I am disappointed as all get out!  I am more scared than I have ever been in my entire life!  I am ANGRY!  I am MAD as heck, and I'm NOT gonna take it anymore!

From the back pages...


While everyone else was concentrating on Indiana and Iran last week, a much smaller piece of news broke that was of little interest to the wider world. It was so microscopic that it would have missed it entirely,  But fortunately it can pay to read the back pages of of newspapers as well as blogs,  The unheralded bit of non-newsy news  was about  the sudden death of Anthony Stokes that was, in addition to being a minor tragedy, also a telling story about where we are as a culture.

You probably don't remember Anthony Stokes, but back in 2013, he was briefly famous. Stokes was a 15-year-old Georgia kid with a bad heart: Born with an enlarged heart, doctors gave him roughly six months to live if he didn't get a transplant. The problem for Stokes-besides his terrible medical condition-was that the medical authorities wouldn't put him on the transplant list because they deemed him to be a high risk for non-compliance. You see, Stokes had not just a history of bad grades but a criminal record, too. "We follow very specific criteria in determining eligibility for a transplant of any kind," a flack from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta said at the time. "They said they don't have any evidence that he would take his medicine or that he would go to his follow-ups," said Stokes' mother.

But this is America, so you can already guess how this story went. Stokes' family went to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. They cried racism. Then social media and "#BlackTwitter" (their term, not mine) kicked in. And the doctors at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta freaked out because there are few things as unsettling as being called a racist by hordes of people on the internet. So the doctors reversed course and put Stokes on the transplant list. And, by the grace of God, Stokes got a heart. (Which means that someone else, by necessity, did not.)

And then every liberal/leftist race baiting publication from the Huffington Post, Ebony and on down did a victory lap. To their mind, they had won another victory in the culture war, exposing racism, shaming the power structure, and making the world a more perfect place.



Last Tuesday, a little less than two years after Stokes was gifted a heart, he allegedly broke into an 81-year-old woman's home and, upon being discovered, fired gunshots at her. He allegedly  fled the scene in a car that police later determined had been stolen. Police pursued Stokes in a high-speed chase. After a few miles Stokes allegedly hit a pedestrian, whereupon he crashed the stolen car and died.( I don't have to cover my ass on this last bit; he is indisputably dead.)
 

There's a great parable wrapped up in this story. And yet, in the public consciousness, the death of Anthony Stokes barely registers. He's not even a footnote. But he should be. Because he got a heart that could have gone to someone else if not for the online mob and charges of racism. He got a heart and someone else did not-because of the culture war. And he wasted it!   I wonder  if Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson or Eric Holder showed up at his funeral.  Of course there was no mention from the White House on the event.

Somewhere in this nation there has been a funeral for someone who needed that wasted heart.  I wonder how they might have used it?

Hmmmm ! Like Great Minds ??? Birds of a Feather???


US Government Wrongly Paid $125 Billion in Benefits in 2014


Dateline: April 7, 2015

Federal government agencies improperly paid out a record $124.7 billion in benefits last year to people who did not qualify for them, often because they were dead, according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

Of course, when a 145-year old man can open a bank account using an active Social Security number as identification, you sort of get the idea that the government
 has trouble knowing who is dead and who isn't.

Worse news is that the $124.7 billion in improper payments during 2014 is about $19 billion more than the $105.8 billion improperly paid in 2013, stated the GAO in its report to Congress.

Obama is at the controls. Assume the crash position.



Scary analogy ... sourced from former USMC flag officers.
Crash Position

The pilot was locked out of the cockpit.

That phrase finally revealed the full horror of the crash of Germanwings flight 9525. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz waited for the pilot to leave the cockpit, then locked the door to prevent his re-entry. After which Lubitz, for reasons unknown and perhaps unknowable, deliberately steered the jet into a harrowing 8 minute plunge ending in an explosive 434 mph impact with a rocky mountainside. 150 men, women and children met an immediate, unthinkably violent death.

Lubitz, in his single-minded madness, couldn't be stopped because anyone who could change the jet's disastrous course was locked out.

It's hard to imagine the growing feelings of fear and helplessness that the passengers felt as the unforgiving landscape rushed up to meet them. Hard - but not impossible.

Because America is in trouble. We feel the descent in the pits of our stomachs. We hear the shake and rattle of structures stressed beyond their limits. We don't know where we're going anymore, but do know it isn't good. And above all, we feel helpless because Barack Obama has locked us out.

He locked the American people out of his decision to seize the national healthcare system. Locked us out when we wanted to know why the IRS was attacking conservatives. He locked us out of having a say in his decision to tear up our immigration laws, and to give over a trillion dollars in benefits to those who broke those laws.

Obama locked out those who advised against premature troop withdrawals. Locked out the intelligence agencies who issued warnings about the growing threat of ISIS. He locked out anyone who could have interfered with his release of five Taliban terror chiefs in return for one U.S. military deserter.

And of course, Barack Obama has now locked out Congress, the American people, and our allies as he strikes a secret deal with Iran to determine the timeline (not prevention) of their acquisition of nuclear weapons.

Was Andreas Lubitz depressed, insane, or abysmally evil when he decided to lock that cockpit door and listen to no voices other than those in his head? Did he somehow believe himself to be doing the right thing?

The voice recordings from the doomed aircraft reveal that as the jet began its rapid descent, the passengers were quiet. There was probably some nervous laughter, confusion, a bit of comforting chatter with seatmates, followed by a brief period in which anxiety had not yet metastasized into terror.

It was only near the end of the 8 minute plunge that everyone finally understood what was really happening. Only near the end when they began to scream.

Like those passengers, a growing number of Americans feel a helpless dread as they come to the inescapable conclusion that our nation's decline is an act of choice rather than of chance. The choice of one man who is in full control of our 8 year plunge.

A man who has locked everyone out.

Muslims are ANGRY at Texas Mayor After She Stops “Sharia Court”… Here Is Her EPIC Response!

This radical group of Muslims is not pleased with the Mayor of Irvine, Texas after she put the end to America’s first “Sharia Court.” Mayor Beth Van Duyne has accused mosque leaders of creating separate laws for Muslims, which is why the city voted to stop these supposedly “voluntary” tribunals from operating.
Read Irving TX Mayor Beth Van Duyne's remarks to these twisted Islamist .  To allow them to set up, even the slightest substittute for our on courts is to let the camel (camel jockeys) get their nose under the tent.  They will not stop after that.

Government Workers Feel They are 'Thriving' Financially All Others, Not So Much


A lesson learned.  If you want to fee good about your financial world...get a job with the government!

"While the 2 million federal employees’ job satisfaction seems to be free-falling, they still feel far more financially satisfied than other workers, according to a recent nationwide survey.

The Gallup survey conducted between February 2014 and February 2015 found that 44% of federal workers felt they were “thriving” financially, compared to only 34% of all other workers. That sense of financial thriving compared to other workers applied to federal employees of all income levels"

Obama and EPA together again.. Purpose: Shred the Constitution..AGAIN!!!!

A former version of this story stated President Obama was formerly a constitutional law professor. The story has been corrected to accurately report that Obama lectured on constitutional law in the past, but only as a senior lecturer . Obama was merely a speaker on the subject. He puffs his resume by referring to himself as a "former Harvard professor of Constitutional law".  He has pretty well  demonstrated his disdain for our nation's foundation documents,

Obama Schooled on Constitution by His Former Law Professor


"Laurence Tribe joins the long list of individuals, organizations, and local and state governments opposing the Clean Power Plan. Under the Clean Power Plan, the EPA is attempting to finalize regulations that would require states to meet individual targets to cut CO2 emissions, essentially eliminating the use of coal as an affordable, reliable energy source that provides nearly 40 percent of America’s electricity. Tribe, a Harvard law professor and “liberal legal icon,” had not been shy about his reasons in the past and testified on them before the House Energy and Power Subcommittee on Tuesday."

The Obama/EPA partnership requires a look at reality of this ludicrous move.

W‌hen Obama's climate cap-and-trade bill was defeated in the Democrat-controlled Senate, President Barack Obama noted there were other ways of “skinning the cat.”[1] Now we know that his chosen way is an onslaught of mandates, regulations, and possibly taxes directed primarily by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The indicator proposed by the Administration to guide the regulatory push is the “social cost of carbon” (SCC). In theory, the SCC measures the worldwide economic damage caused by the emission of a ton of carbon dioxide (CO2). In practice, SCC estimates are far too flawed for serious regulatory use. Studies by The Heritage Foundation and others have highlighted numerous problems with this metric.[2] Nevertheless, Obama Administration regulators are still relying on the SCC to justify and guide their rulemaking.
This study examines the economic impacts of a comprehensive set of SCC-guided regulations on energy production and use. If implemented, these regulations would reduce aggregate gross domestic product (GDP) by more than $2.5 trillion between now and 2030. Employment would track nearly 300,000 jobs below the no-carbon-regulation baseline in an average year, with some years seeing an employment deficit of more than 1 million jobs.

A Plumber For The President

I wonder if the dumbocrats will be able to figure out the connection?
F.

Only weeks after leaving office on January 20, 2017, former President Barack Obama discovers a leak under his sink, so he calls Troy the Plumber to come out and fix it.
Troy drives to President Obama's new house, which is located in a very exclusive, gated community near Chicago where all the residents have a net income of way more than $250,000 per year.
 
Troy arrives and takes his tools into the house.  He is led to the guest bathroom that contains the leaky pipe under the sink.  Troy assesses the problem and tells President Obama that it's an easy repair that will take less than 10 minutes.  President Obama asks Troy how much it will cost.  Troy checks his rate chart and says, "$9,500."
 
"What?!  $9,500?!" Obama asks, stunned, "But you said it's an easy repair.  Michelle will whip me if I pay a plumber that much!"
 
Troy says, "Yes, but what I do is charge those who make more than $250,000 per year a much higher amount so I can fix the plumbing of poorer people for free.  This has always been my philosophy.  As a matter of fact, I lobbied the Democrat Congress, who passed this philosophy into law. Now all plumbers must do business this way.  It's known as the 'Affordable Plumbing Act of 2014'.  I'm surprised you haven't heard of it."
 
In spite of that, Obama tells Troy there's no way he's paying that much for a small plumbing repair, so Troy leaves.  Obama spends the next hour flipping through the phone book calling for another plumber, but he finds that all other plumbing businesses in the area have gone out of business. Not wanting to pay Troy's price, Obama does nothing and the leak goes un-repaired for several more days.  A week later the leak is so bad President Obama has had to put a bucket under the sink.
Michelle is not happy as she has Oprah and guests arriving the next morning.  The bucket fills up quickly and has to be emptied every hour, and there's a risk the room will flood, so Obama calls Troy and pleads with him to return.
 
Troy goes back to President Obama's house, looks at the leaky pipe, checks his new rate chart and says, "Let's see, this will now cost you $21,000."
 
President Obama quickly fires back, "What? A few days ago you told me it would cost $9,500!"
 
Troy explains, "Well, because of the 'Affordable Plumbing Act,' a lot of wealthier people are learning how to maintain and take care of their own plumbing, so there are fewer payers in the plumbing exchanges.  As a result, the price I have to charge wealthy people like you keeps rising. Not only that, but for some reason the demand for plumbing work by those who get it for free has skyrocketed!  There's a long waiting list of those who need repairs, but the amount we get doesn't cover our costs, especially paperwork and record-keeping. This unfortunately has put a lot of my fellow plumbers out of business, they're not being replaced, and nobody is going into the plumbing business because they know they can't make any money at it.  I'm hurting too, all thanks to greedy rich people like you who won't pay their 'fair share'.  On the other hand, why didn't you buy plumbing insurance last December?  If you had bought plumbing insurance available under the 'Affordable Plumbing Act,' all this would have been covered by your policy."
 
"You mean I wouldn't have to pay anything to have you fix my plumbing problem?" asks Obama.
 
"Well, not exactly," replies Troy. "You would have had to buy the insurance before the deadline, which has passed now. And, because you're rich, you would have had to pay $34,000 in premiums, which would have given you a 'silver' plan, and then, since this would have been your first repair, you would have to pay up to the $21,000 deductible, and anything over that would have a $7,500 co-pay, and then there's the mandatory maintenance program, which is covered up to 17.5%, so there are some costs involved.  Nothing is for free."
 
"WHAT?!" exclaims Obama.  "Why so much for a puny sink leak?!"
 
With a bland look, Troy replies, "Well, paperwork, mostly, like I said.  And the internal cost of the program itself.  You don't think a program of this complexity and scope can run itself, do you?  Besides, there are millions of folks with lower incomes than you, even many in the 'middle class', who qualify for subsidies that people like you must support.  That's why they call it the 'Affordable Plumbing Act'!  Only people who don't make much money can afford it.  If you want affordable plumbing, you'll have to give away most of what you have accumulated and cut your and Michelle's income by about 90%.  Then you can qualify to GET your 'Fair Share' instead of GIVING it."
 
"But who would pass a crazy act like the 'Affordable Plumbing Act'?!" exclaims the exasperated Obama.
 
After a sigh, Troy replies, "Congress... because they didn't read it."

Would You Like Some Talk About Race in America With Your Latte?

"I went to a Starbucks once in Moscow and couldn’t figure out how to order a small cup of coffee. No, the menu wasn’t in Russian. It was in Starbucks, where a small was a “tall” and a medium was a “grande” and a large was a “venti.” I went in for coffee and came out with a headache.

Now Starbucks and its founder Howard Schultz have come up with a new cool and trendy idea – an idea, like all their other ideas, that’s designed to show how cool and trendy they are."

THE SECOND PASSENGER, JOHN MCCAIN , SAID, "I'M A SENATOR, AND A DECORATED WAR HERO FROM AN ELITE NAVY UNIT FROM THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." SO HE GRABBED THE SECOND PACK AND JUMPED.


THE THIRD PASSENGER, BARACK OBAMA SAID, "I AM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND I AM THE SMARTEST EVER IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY, SOME EVEN CALL ME THE 'ANOINTED ONE'. SO HE GRABBED THE PACK NEXT TO HIM AND JUMPED OUT.

THE FOURTH PASSENGER, BILLY GRAHAM, SAID TO THE FIFTH PASSENGER, A 10-YEAR-OLD SCHOOLGIRL , "I HAVE LIVED A FULL LIFE AND SERVED MY GOD THE BEST I COULD. I WILL SACRIFICE MY LIFE AND LET YOU HAVE THE LAST PARACHUTE. 
"THE LITTLE GIRL SAID, "THAT'S OKAY, MR. GRAHAM. THERE'S A PARACHUTE LEFT FOR YOU. AMERICA'S SMARTEST PRESIDENT TOOK  MY SCHOOL BOOKS BACKPACK."

IDAHO SHERIFF: THE 2ND AMENDMENT IS YOUR CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT

Idaho is one of the many states now considering a repeal of the
requirement for a concealed carry permit in order to carry a firearm in public. Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler supports the move, suggesting the 2nd Amendment acts as citizens’ concealed carry permit.

According to NBC’s KHQ, Wheeleer said, “The right to bear arms is already in the constitution.” He believes its presence in the constitution means carrying a gun is “consistent with our federal statutes.”

CHURCHILL SAW IT COMING

CHURCHILL ON ISLAM  He saw it coming. 
  
(And he was not frightened of political correctness as our Leader, BO is today.  It is no wonder this president will be  just another failed presidency.  Shame on this gutless ass)


The speech below was written in 1899. by Winston Church. This short speech from  Churchill, was delivered by him in  when he was a young soldier and journalist. It probably sets out the current views of many, but expresses in the wonderful Churchillian turn of phrase and use of the English language, of which he was a past master. Sir Winston Churchill was, without doubt, one of the greatest men of the late 19th and 20th centuries. He was a brave young soldier, a brilliant journalist, an extraordinary politician and statesman, a great war leader and British Prime Minister, to whom the Western world must be forever in his debt.
 

He was a prophet in his own time. He died on 24th January 1965, at the grand old age of 90 and, after a lifetime of service to his country, was accorded a State funeral. 

Some people still do not see a reason to worry about the threat of Islam despite the vivid barbarism it has displayed in our supposedly civilized world  There is still a cesspool of inhumanity lurking in it..   Listen to the words of a real Prophet.  Give attention to the words of Churchill: in 1899.  116 YEARS AGO HE RECOGNIZED ISLAM AS WHAT IT STILL IS !





 HIS WORDS:

. "Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world."
How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live


. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

 Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund

 Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."

Sir Winston Churchill; (Source: The River War, first edition, Vol II, pages 248-250 London).



While our Commander-in-Cowardice plays golf..this shit is all around him !!!



And Obama has no clue !

As you watch this, keep in your mind that our President does not give a rat's ass about these guys slithering through our borders and doing the same things to whomever they please.
Wonder what all the hoopla is over "Drones" in the USA? Take a look at the video below and watch it in full-screen. This Russian (if he really is one) dude has created a  remotely controlled quadro-copter fitted out with a 100 round machine gun.  
 Watch him as he has fun blowing up mannequins and cars. and it's all done with a  touch of humor.The reality is that this fellow has created a very  lethal killing machine that could be remotely controlled and come into your yard, or house and kill everyone there. > Then it can fly away or be destructed.  
 These types of robots have so much 'stealth' killing power, populations of  the near future have a reason to be worried about what can happen to them  over a Sunday Bar-B-Q.
 

Don't laugh !t  I is part of the plan.
