George Takei vs Clarence Thomas

Here is a real lesson in showmanship — a real bad one. And it comes from a professional actor mega-social activist, in other words a “Professional.”

George Takei: Clarence Thomas Is a ‘Clown in Blackface,’ Doesn’t Belong on Supreme Court

BY: Emma-Jo Morris | Washington Free Beacon |
July 2, 2015

Takei’s rage came in light of the Justice’s contrary stance on the recent equal marriage decision, where the Court ruled 5-4 that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. Thomas released a statement saying that the government does not grant human dignity, and as such cannot take it away. Thomas argued that human dignity is inherent, and that the Supreme Court cannot issue it.

Go to the video tape. Here’s a first class example of a Leftist activist

    “Star Trek actor and gay rights activist George Takei ripped Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas as a “clown in blackface” and a disgrace to America in an interview with Fox 10 Phoenix.”

“He gets me that angry,” which is liberal code for justified in calling him that. And he’ll get plenty of applause from his gay community comrades.

Then says: “This man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America. I’ll say it on camera.” Proud and loud…exhibit “A”.

The problem in his case is that Thomas’s dissent was a minority opinion. Try that 3-cushion bank shot from the right and watch what happens.

I’m reminded of the dignity the court awarded abolished from the 55 million and counting aborted babies since Roe.

According to his bio script: “George Takei is an actor, social justice activist, and social media mega-power.”

Double-minded standards

Incidentally, if you were also feeling a bit rainbowed out — and it has only been days so far — then check out this post on Sons of Liberty. It will certainly remind you that you are not alone in your feeling of overwhelming rainbow fanaticism — rainbowphilia.

It’s a list of businesses or organizations going gaga over the gay flag and same-sex cause. The list of examples is excruciatingly painful and incestuous in pandering to this sociosexual political agenda. And maybe it is just the beginning too.

But at the very same time we learned that a rebel flag harkening back to the confederate history is far too controversial, polarizing and racist to even display. So there was a frenzy to ban it and a competition who could be first to throw it under the bus. Even NASCAR has gotten in the fray by banning it.

The problem it seems is that anyone waving it, using it or endorsing it in any way is now de facto racist. If that were not bad enough, reports say two flag companies announced they would stop making it, and stores will stop selling it. If you are looking for hash brownies or pot granola you might have some luck, but some things are considered too rage inducing to make anymore.

And then when you see the Left buried neck-deep in both issues it sort of lights your hair on fire. On one hand anything related to the flag is racist. While on the other, the rainbow flag is the greatest thing. Should that mean that anyone endorsing the rainbow flag is gay? Under and by the Left’s orthodoxy you would think so.

But no, everyone is suppose to embrace the rainbow LGBTQ flag, to be hip. That goes for businesses too. See the list, including the American Airlines picture. Even in this very WordPress program there was a rainbow banner installed on the edit page. I checked and Google had similar links to pro-LGBT pages celebrating their euphoric sexuality of the community. It obviously is not meant to be a personal statement but a gesture to identify with a broader culture.

No such allowance or tolerance should be made for the Confederate flag and those who rally around it. In that case: demonize it along with the people who associate themselves with it. Want an example? Reports condemn people who overlay the American Flag on their profile, after a successful campaign for people to put rainbow filters on FB profiles.

As that article points out about this fast-and-furious flurry of rainbow activity, does it all appear a little contrived, especially the White House lighting project? Was this roll out sporadic? It all shows how disingenuous the left is on anything. It’s all about the political cause. If it benefits that, great, but if not it is the problem. Now a sexual cause too.

Here we are far from paradise

Erik Rush nailed this one to the wall, in Lutheresque style. A little high brow at beginning but great analysis.

Silencing America’s Majority

Erik Rush | July 2, 2015 | Sons of Liberty

Excerpt:

Shakur had no proof whatsoever of anything he said – yet he and Shabazz were allowed to stand there at length and incite Americans to kill other Americans. Conversely, a white individual cannot criticize our president’s tie without being pilloried for racism.

This double standard is quite similar to that of militant homosexuals being allowed to call for the complete disenfranchisement of Christians, the burning of their businesses, and even violent action against them – yet woe be unto the Christian who criticizes homosexuals or their attendant political agenda, no matter how diplomatically it is done.

Yes, the double standards could not be more glaring. On one hand we have Christians who must be bullied, on the other side we have gays who are encouraged to bully — and proud of it. Then there is the media playing right along.

Disagree with Obama and you are a racist bigot, woman-hating, homophobic, anti-choice, Obama hater, and card-carrying right-wing conspiracist nut job. If however you support him, you can be any kind of terrorist-loving, hedonistic, ant-Semitic, anti-Christian, fascist, race-pimping bigot you want to be…and preferably loud and proud about it. Pardon all the hyphenations but the leftists have industrialized their use.

The Global Warming fanatics are still pushing their snake oil. But who is buying it? That could be a problem, or so you would think. This article encapsulates a series of comments at one recent attempt to refute the truth.

Commenters excoriate a Science paper that denies global warming ‘pause’

By S. Fred Singer | July 1, 2015 | American Thinker

Perhaps the most inconvenient truth for global warming theorists has been the absence of any statistically significant warming trend in the past 18 years – in spite of rapidly rising atmospheric levels of the greenhouse-gas carbon-dioxide. Many are simply ignoring this unanticipated result – for example, the encyclical letter issued by Pope Francis on June 18. Conventional climate science, as employed in IPCC models, has been unable to explain these observations.

Coming to the rescue, Dr Tom Karl, head of NOAA’s National Climate Data center (NCDC) asserts that the temperature plateau (aka ‘pause’ or ‘hiatus’) is simply an artifact of the data. After he and colleagues adjust some recent SST (sea-surface temp) readings, they claim an uninterrupted warming trend in the 21st century. […/]

I loved this one comment in particular.

“In all this they are not seeking for theories and causes to account for observed facts, but rather forcing their observations and trying to accommodate them to certain theories and opinions of their own.” – Aristotle, On the Heavens II.13.293a

Lots of questions raised by their claims but don’t expect any explanations from the G/W – Climate Caliphate.  These days it is all about “settled science” and “settled law” responses to any problems, questions, or skepticism. Both of which are pretty unsettling.

I’ll skip commentary, except the shootings were disturbing. Having all this around the killing of 9 people seems an awful lot to have on the plate at one time.

Not to get the intended reaction is a little divine justice. But we have come to a surreal point where not to riot is a surprise, where rioting and civil unrest is the norm.

Look where they’ve taken it, from shootings to a flag and creeping racism. Those who use racism now have more in common with the shooter’s motives than with victims.

NBC Pulls Trump Card

NBC plays the Trump card. Wasn’t that predictable?

In their disagreement with what Trump has said on the illegal invasion on the border, they terminated their business dealings with him. I bet the Left was applauding. I wonder what is in the contract, if there was one? They just prove they can break business ties on words they don’t like — whatever they find objectionable.

Their business deals must abolish the speech of anyone they deal with. Funny that working relationship has not affected Rev Al Sharpton’s mouth. Or maybe that is what they wanted when they hired him? Yet they refused responsibility and made a disclaimer for Williams’ words.

Change org’s petition was said:

“Please cancel Miss USA, Miss Universe and the Apprentice. You are supporting a hateful and narcissistic individual without any kind of values, both personal and business wise. Not only that, but you are supporting a growing trend of bigotry and division in this country.”

USA today says “Trump continues to deny he’s a bigot”.

But NBC should be careful of appeasing liberal left demands. What happens when it refuses to do what they or Univision wants? Well, when they find out it won’t be pretty. This was consequences for running, the statements were the excuse. It always seems free speech is a one way street with the left.

Along those terms, here’s the latest version: police crackdown on Ferguson riots violated the free speech of thugs and looters rioting. Hey, free speech must mean free stuff to the left. If that’s the case, seeing the way Obama’s been cracking down on conservatives we should be entitled to loot Fort Knox — if there is anything in it.

Fly the friendly skies of racism…. circa forever

…but no flag is necessary.

Forget the Confederate Flag…Ban Democrats

By Peter Heck – June 29, 2015 | American Thinker

In any sane culture, the reaction to the recent massacre at the Charleston Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church would have been a racially and ethnically unified demand to try, convict, and swiftly execute the monster who perpetrated the evil attack.

But we don’t live in a sane culture. So instead, we are chasing a 150-year-old battle flag from the 1860s, pretending that by abolishing it from public sight, we are striking some kind of historic blow for racial healing. What foolishness.

To make things worse, the liberal politicians and media elites promoting this meaningless distraction as some kind of substantive objective are doing so not because they are truly interested in providing a lasting peace to those who have suffered loss in this South Carolina bloodbath. No, they are despicably consumed with advancing their political agenda.

Less than a week after the slaughter, the national Democratic Party was shamelessly trying to raise funds over the Confederate battle flag issue. And faithfully fulfilling their role as mouthpieces of the Democrat left, the Washington Post followed up with an article titled “The GOP’s uneasy relationship with the Confederate flag.” Yes, that would be the Confederate flag designed by a Democrat for a country full of Democrats and warred against by Republicans. Good heavens. […/]

But only now that they can use minorities as slaves to vote for them in mass do they pretend to care about them. (as far as the ballot door)

After all, Dylann Roof was a probable socialist with anti-Christian sentiments. Well, if he were Christian or pro-Christian he’d have had a real hard time with planning this whole attack in/on a church. Gee, he could have had a DNC bumper sticker on his car. Now they have honed the skill of race-baiting as a diversion. They put down the fire hoses for the big-labor poll taxes, boycotts, and name calling. So ban the racists not a symbol.

Universal symbol of racism

Universal symbol of racism

The most irritating two words

Democrats use so much language that really offends me, but there are two words that stand out as probably the most irritating.

Every time you hear the Democrats cry about needing this legislation, regulation or that bureaucracy those same two words rear their ugly head almost every time.

The words are Common Sense:–“sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts.”

One of the biggest culprits of this egregious offense is Hillary. She loves those words and works the phrase into almost any issue. The more unpleasant the issue or their ideas are, the more they use the words common sense to cover their butts and detract from their ideas. If the ideas aren’t popular, then throw out the word common sense a lot. Ask a Democrat their position on a very difficult and controversial issue and you are sooner or later likely to get the standard “I support a common sense approach.” Does it tell you anything? Does it define their position? Well, I suppose it defines the fact that they want to be sneaky and slippery about the issue. It sounds so good.

And that is exactly the problem, it sounds good to way too many people. First, the idea that these people are actually guided by common sense is ludicrous. I mean if there were a competition for lies that would be in the top 10. Or then the idea that whatever approach they do take must be therefore based on common sense because they told you they support a common sense approach. It’s crazy. Second, they are filler words; or it’s more like an empty vessel into which they can pour anything they want under that label. Want to buy affordable healthcare anyone? That’s the kind of plan those words are cover for.

The latest case in point is Hillary using them in her response about gun control. She said:

“It makes no sense that bipartisan legislation to require universal background checks would fail in Congress despite overwhelming bipartisan support. It makes no sense that we couldn’t come together to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, or people suffering from mental illnesses, even people on the terrorist watch list. That doesn’t make sense, and it is a rebuke to this nation we love and care about.”

“The president is right — the politics on this issue have been poison. But we can’t give up. The stakes are too high, the costs are too dear, and I am not and will not be afraid to keep fighting for common sense reforms.”

All that sense from someone who obfuscates and hides the truth about Benghazi, a person who short circuited the State department by having her private email server. Someone who ran around blaming a video no one had seen for an attack, and telling the victims family they would get the guy who made it.

A person who scolded Congress “what difference at this point does it make” in response to questions on the Benghazi terrorist attack. This professor of “common sense” is lecturing everyone on what “makes no sense”, after scrubbing her private server clean after email requests on Benghazi – where an ambassador and 3 Americans were killed under her authority, while setting up an outpost under her orders.


“Once again racist rhetoric has metastasized into racist violence,” then she dove into race issues of the Charleston shootings. “America’s long struggle with race is far from finished.”

For a little background from Dan O’Donnell at 1130 -WISN:

Even as her husband’s term in office was ending, Hillary was still trying to profit from it. She had furniture from the White House shipped to her personal home in Chappaqua, New York. She said they were donated, but when the manufacturers were contacted, it became clear that they were donated to the White House, not the Clintons, and meant to stay there. — Read more

But remember at that time the real story Hillary claimed news should be covering was the vast right-wing conspiracy, which was after her and her husband for all their escapades. This is probably the phoniest woman on the planet, lecturing on moral high ground.

At Texas Southern University earlier in June, Hillary said.

“Now, all of these reforms, from expanded early voting to modernized registration, are common sense ways to strengthen our democracy. But I’ll be candid here, none of them will come easily.”

But apparently real common sense does not come easily or frequently to Hillary Clinton.

Lecturing about law enforcement’s need to use cameras for “transparency she said,

“It will help protect good people on both sides of the lens. For every tragedy caught on tape, there surely have been many more than remained invisible. Not every problem can be or will be prevented by cameras but this is a common sense step we should take.”

So it’s “common sense,” we need cameras on Hillary Clinton to provide transparency.

Hillary shows her colors

Hillary finds her inner rainbow. Twitter feed. “Loud and Proud”

Hill Twit

A “History” theme, by a candidate who is running on her record while running from her records. History? Like using a private server or emails for gov business.

Hillary before (circa 2004):

“I believe marriage is…a sacred bond between a man and a woman….a fundamental bedrock principle that it exists between a man and woman, going back into the midst of history, as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization. And that it’s primary principle role during those milennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults.”

Say anything, do anything, be anything……. and forget everything.

Supreme decision marks the territory

The Supreme Court Ratifies a New Civic Religion That Is Incompatible with Christianity

by David French June 26, 2015 | National Review Online

The most striking aspect of Justice Kennedy’s majority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, which created a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, was its deep emotion. This was no mere legal opinion. Indeed, the law and Constitution had little to do with it. (To Justice Kennedy, the most persuasive legal precedents were his own prior opinions protecting gay rights.) This was a statement of belief, written with the passion of a preacher, meant to inspire.
Consider the already much-quoted closing:
” As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”

Love substitutes for logic and the Constitution. They needed a trump card and they found one with love. Love is also kind, and you don’t see much of that from the LGBT lobby. But then what does love have to do with a lawsuit? When emotion is the basis for decisions, then how much further do we have to go?

Well, it sounds a lot more like the Woodstock decision

    Right behind you, I see the millions
    On you, I see the glory
    From you, I get opinion
    From you, I get the story

Ode to the rainbow

I used to like rainbows, way back, and I really have nothing against them. But now I suppose there will be another new term soon, rainbowphobia. Note to Websters’.

As of yesterday with the SCOTUS decision on same-sex marriage, I saw the rainbow on everything, everywhere in support of that agenda. Of course it was already bad enough that the LGBT community had co-opted the rainbow years ago. Suddenly it was everywhere as if planned yesterday. Anywhere they could stick it.

These days I guess everything is about associations or symbolic interpretations. Triggering is the buzzword for something that inflames one. It’s about common perceptions, new and evolving meanings. It’s about the meaning of something at a given time.

Since they attach the symbol to anything related to same-sex or LGBT, they lay claim to areas that used to mean something else, just like the rainbow. Meanings of words change and society is suppose to adapt. But one thing I will sadly miss is the rainbow – or the non-sexualized, time honored rainbow. We’ll probably be called phobic over it.

So I thought in honor of that a few special mentions and helpful reminders would be appropriate.(all quotes in NIV)

Gen 9:12-16

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: 13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. 16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”

Ezek 1:25-28

Then there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads as they stood with lowered wings. 26 Above the expanse over their heads was what looked like a throne of sapphire, and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a man. 27 I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him. 28 Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him.

Rev 4:3

And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian. A rainbow , resembling an emerald, encircled the throne.

Rev 10:1-2

Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars. 2 He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand.

Funny how the rainbow is now symbolic for gay issues or same-sex marriage. Normally, there are limits to symbols but there seems to be no limit to the ways they can use this one. I never understood the connection between this symbol and their cause.

They have reinterpreted the meaning of yet another time-honored historical thing. Or are we now somewhere over the rainbow? Perhaps we need a psychological term for their obsession with using the rainbow? The term could be rainbow-philia.

Breitbart: Black Panther Ex-Chairman: ‘Complete’ Charleston’s Slave Rebellion’s Plan to Kill All Slave Masters

CHARLESTON, South Carolina — In an angry call to arms just a block away from the site of the Charleston massacre, former New Black Panther Party chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz told a group of about 200 African American Charlestonians that they need to “finish the mission” of killing “slave masters” and their families.

He made the incendiary comments at the Save the Black Church rally held Tuesday night in Marian Square, close to the Mother Emanuel AME Church, where white racist Dylann Roof allegedly murdered nine black churchgoers.

Shabazz’s comments began with the story of Denmark Vesey, who planned an unsuccessful slave revolt and helped found the Mother Emanuel Church.

http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2015/06/24/black-panther-chairman-complete-charlestons-slave-rebellions-plan-to-kill-all-the-slave-masters/

“We come to change the order here,” Shabazz told the crowd.

“We got to complete what Denmark didn’t finish,” he insisted.

Yes, remember the reports on Baltimore riots when he was on the cable shows presented as a mediator that had reformed into some moderate voice?  (like  Al Sharpton was the example) I believe  CNN interviewed him.  Obama will be making a statement about that… any day now.(ha ha) That was Tuesday.

Sounds of angry pro-choice deniers

Looky looky, new abortion rhetoric. The leftist abortion lobby has decided for tougher blunter talk on abortion. Their verbiage has gotten too watered down, time for an upgrade.

But one should read this first, from a former pro-choicer: “The day I became steadfastly opposed to abortion

Time for a little evolution of arguments from the “pro-choice” abortion-obsessed crowd. It’s for the “social good” and don’t be afraid to say it, according to the leftist scriptwriters. In a new book the article is based on they are upping the dialogue.

The old proud and loud method is more like it.

So all the times you hear leftists talk about needing a conversation or national dialogue about this or that, understand they mean no conversation. Practically everything leftists talk about is rooted in opposites and on control and force. Nowhere else are those traits more abundant than abortion. Then their redefinition skills are essential to complete it. That’s what is in store for the future.

Valerie Jarrett: way too close for comfort

FBI Files Document Communism in Valerie Jarrett’s Family

JUNE 22, 2015 | Judicial Watch

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) files obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that the dad, maternal grandpa and father-in-law of President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.

Jarrett’s dad, pathologist and geneticist Dr. James Bowman, had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals, his lengthy FBI file shows. In 1950 Bowman was in communication with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who fled to Prague after getting charged with espionage. Bowman was also a member of a Communist-sympathizing group called the Association of Internes and Medical Students. After his discharge from the Army Medical Corps in 1955, Bowman moved to Iran to work, the FBI records show.

According to Bowman’s government file the Association of Internes and Medical Students is an organization that “has long been a faithful follower of the Communist Party line” and engages in un-American activities. Bowman was born in Washington D.C. and had deep ties to Chicago, where he often collaborated with fellow Communists. JW also obtained documents on Bowman from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) showing that the FBI was brought into investigate him for his membership in a group that “follows the communist party line.” The Jarrett family Communist ties also include a business partnership between Jarrett’s maternal grandpa, Robert Rochon Taylor, and Stern, the Soviet agent associated with her dad.
Jarrett’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was also another big-time Chicago Communist, according to separate FBI files obtained by JW as part of a probe into the Jarrett family’s Communist ties. For a period of time Vernon Jarrett appeared on the FBI’s Security Index and was considered a potential Communist saboteur who was to be arrested in the event of a conflict with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). His FBI file reveals that he was assigned to write propaganda for a Communist Party front group in Chicago that would “disseminate the Communist Party line among…the middle class.”
It’s been well documented that Valerie Jarrett, a Chicago lawyer and longtime Obama confidant, is a liberal extremist who wields tremendous power in the White House. Faithful to her roots, she still has connections to many Communist and extremist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood. Jarrett and her family also had strong ties to Frank Marshal Davis, a big Obama mentor and Communist Party member with an extensive FBI file.
JW has exposed Valerie Jarrett’s many transgressions over the years, including her role in covering up a scandalous gun-running operation carried out by the Department of Justice (DOJ). Last fall JW obtained public records that show Jarrett was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious, a disastrous experiment in which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) allowed guns from the U.S. to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels. Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of hundreds of weapons which have been used in an unknown number of crimes, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.
In 2008 JW got documents linking Valerie Jarrett, who also served as co-chairman of Obama’s presidential transition team, to a series of real estate scandals, including several housing projects operated by convicted felon and Obama fundraiser/friend Antoin “Tony” Rezko. According to the documents obtained from the Illinois Secretary of State, Valerie Jarrett served as a board member for several organizations that provided funding and support for Chicago slum projects operated by Rezko.
http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2015/06/communism-in-jarretts-family/

What’s the real surprise here? Right, there is none. It’s what we knew except maybe the extent of those ties. Then the connection to Frank Marshal Davis. While Davis was in Hawaii, he was very actively connected in communist circles. His files alone show that. What an odd coincidence that Obama turns up in Chicago closely embraced by Jarrett, now joined like glue. Obama’s hierarchy is infested with commie connections.

Now, as all this is being verified and revealed, Obama is out railing against his favorite whipping posts: Christianity, racism, guns, and bigotry of others. You guessed it, next he’ll be attacking Republican candidates to give cover for this news and any of his scandals, including IRS, Benghazi or Obamacare. Or Obama’s latest diversion by dropping the N-word into a conversation. Yet Valerie is right in the middle of any deal we are involved in.  On top of that while Obama is engaged in the biggest negotiation between Iran over nuclear weapons. Coincidences, lots of them.

Run for your life

Getting into the political weeds, or cobwebs, a few things occurred to me. Start with the candidates for president. Is this going to be a primary or a parade? Cause for a rant.

When things become a pattern I start to poke fun at them. Today it’s the announcements. Every few days I get an email from someone but the subject is mostly the same. Uusually something like “should I run or not?” Whoa, are you talking to me? Glad you asked. It’s amusing how they all claim to be asking if they should run. That’s sort of like Hillary asking people “should I run?” You know there is no question in her mind, she decided long ago. Same thing with Jeb Bush and most of the others. Huckabee, there was another. In his case he parlayed his show on Fox into that question prompting his step down.

One of the latest in particular was a message from Jeb before he formerly announced. That one had a family member saying something close to: “urge my father to run”, he’s sitting on the fence wondering. Really, he was just waiting for me to tell him whether to run or not. Oh, I’m the one he is waiting to hear “yes” from before jumping in. A little sarcasm is appropriate. He seemed to have decided without my urging.

It’s almost too much for me to bear that all these people are waiting for my humble opinion on running. I must be pretty important. Of course, I know none of it is true. I have to joke about it because it is funny when they all do and say the same thing. It’s not true that they want to know much less care what you think. They want your money. What if you say no, don’t bother running or wasting your time? And every one of them has that handy-dandy link for a contribution, to “be as generous” as you possibly can. Never mind how they are going to spend it. It’s like Jim and Tammy Faye Baker shaking you down: “I know you’re heart is just telling you “give give give.”” Right, I just can’t refuse a great cause. (sarcasm meter is redlining)

Back to the announcements. When they do announce, they send you helpful notes to tell you to tune in to their announcement speech — which hopefully won’t be at the same time the other guy is also announcing. Talk about scheduling conflicts? Then you get to read the headline that indeed they announced. Woo–hoo! Was there any question about it?

But I’m just kicking the tires of the process. Well, after it happens a dozen of times or so there is no suspense to it. What people say really doesn’t matter anyway. And how about those lists they are building? That’s half the purpose of it. Why else do they do all those petition drives between runs? There is not much mystery about it. Well, accept that most of it is staged in a phony way. They’ve strategized a reason for a run, known to them.

There is one other point. If history is any example, then I figure that there is really only a potential for 2 runs. You can claim ignorance and inexperience after losing the first time and do a 2.0 revision run. That leaves us with where we are. I see Huck is running the second time. Does he realize this is it? Rick Perry is doing a second-time-around run. Rick Sandtorum. Hillary’s doing her re-fried-beans run. Oh, sure they may think they can go three but by that time they are stale as a brick. You go from household name to household blame. By then, the jig is up and it looks more like a full time job running for president. And no one wants to look like a “professional candidate”.

That leads into another issue with Jeb. You know he can run again if for some reason it doesn’t work out. It’s a rather depressing thought. Who knows, maybe he could run against one of his relatives next time? Well, that could be more like family feud, imagine those email campaigns. It’s all just a put-on anyway. We have plenty of real problems and these guys personalize it like a seer-sucker suit. It really is about them. Does he have the stuff, is what people are supposed to look at. To them the message is “why not me?”

I suppose one of the most depressing parts of it — while it is supposed to be an optimistic thing — is that it starts by getting us sick of the process before we really start. It’s like watching the holding pattern for Chicago’s O’hare airport. And let’s leave the pollsters out of it for the time being. So maybe it is a little different on the Democrats’ side. They knew four years ago who was going to run, and who was going to be the nominee. I’m sure she had the same email approach despite that.

If they based their popularity on their twitter accounts we’d be in deep kim-chee. How many phony followers does it take to decide to run? Obama and Michele have their army of followers. Obama has his own email campaign to lobby himself. He ran an insurgent campaign as the incumbent president. Follow that logic. Then he won and people voted for him the 2nd time. So this running for president thing is many various things, but straight forward and honest is not one of them.

We might need a Candidates’ Anonymous. It would probably be government funded.

The Left’s cultural theatrics and flag warfare

I’m disgusted and sickened by the SC shootings for multiple reasons and various evils. It’s all bad enough. Yet 9 people were executed by a racist and the left has everyone litigating a flag. Why should that surprise anyone? Planned Parenthood is murdering babies every day but progressives are emotionally hemorrhaging over “structural racism”.

Institutionalized extermination at Planned Parenthood deserves the protection of the federal government. The left enshrined abortion as a sacred right and force judges, appointees to swear on its altar as a litmus test. Margaret Sanger’s agenda in tow.

So now the progressive left are in fits over a piece of cloth on a pole, while they demand government subsidize and protect institutionalized extermination clinics. But don’t dare mention federal budget cuts for Planned Parenthood funding. Funding cuts are war words… but get rid of that offensive flag. Dr. Kermit Gosnell could not provoke their wrath. Liberals couldn’t even find their way to his courtroom trial. Peter Singer’s bioethics, fetus farming, late-term abortion and infanticide are all on the table. Flags are a huge issue.

Clinton Flag is us

Ah, the Democrats have SO much trouble with that Confederate flag. Maybe they should have spoken to Bubba first, or their famous loser candidate Al Gore. Those two Southern racists.

Can’t leave Hillary out of the picture,  whatever her latest fruit-salad opinion is on it.

I’m thinking “Dixie loves Hillary” will not be her new slogan. Poor Hillary, she’s probably chugging Southern Comfort about now.

A Big ‘No’ To Baltimore From FEMA

June 20, 2015 | Alex DeMetrick | CBS Baltimore

BALTIMORE (WJZ)—The federal government has given a big “no” to Baltimore. A request to FEMA to declare April’s riots a major disaster has been rejected

The damage was only few days old when Governor Hogan walked neighborhoods hit by rioting and looting, as business owners asked for help.

“We’ve spent millions of dollars in the past few days already. We’re going to be reaching out to the president to try to get some federal funds in here,” Hogan said.

The governor requested FEMA declare the riot a major disaster. But the request has been turned down, FEMA saying federal disaster aid is not appropriate for such an event.

“I hope it’s a glitch. I hope it’s something that can be remedied relatively quickly,” said William Pete Welch, City Councilman. […/]

I can’t think of a funnier piece of irony than Baltimore being turned down. Of course those grounds were generic, not a federal disaster. No, the national disaster was in the leadership and Mayor of the city. Then they had the chutzpah to request a bailout for damages. That could prime the pump for future riots. Maybe they could make them annual events?

So reaching out to the president wasn’t exactly fruitful. Well, he does everything else by executive action, why not do a Baltimore bailout? No qualifications necessary.

They hope it was just a glitch. Did someone not sign the request or date it properly? There couldn’t possibly be any legitimate reason not to approve it. Now they’ll appeal it because they couldn’t hear the word “no” the first time. I suppose they could call it social justice? Just blame it on structural racism. Maybe declare it a green sustainability project?

Get out the whoopee cushion.

NBC takes a licking and keeps on clicking

What’s the bigger story: what happened in Charleston, SC or what is going on in NBC?

There can be no question which is more important, the shooting. However, what NBC is doing is a pretty big story. Meet the Press turned into Meet the Bias, even for liberals.

First, we have the reintroduction of Brian Williams into the MSNBC cable brand this week. But what Chuck Todd is doing doesn’t go under the radar either. We all know NBC is one of the media sycophants at Obama’s beckon call. So when Obama has an agenda to push — most of the time — they are atop his advocacy list to push his message… aka policy.

In the days after the shooting, Obama made very clear his desire to re-litigate the gun issue. Even though he said Congress was not willing, he repeatedly said he would not let it go. But we knew that. So when Obama said that the gun control issue needs help to becoming more urgently relevant, enter NBC. We can do that says Todd, no problem.

After his statement he traveled to Santa Monica, Ca to reiterate his passion for gun control saying “I need you to mobilize and organize a constituency.”

So Meet the Press unwinds a prepackaged special on guns from a prison inmate’s perspective. They all happened to be black. But plug it in because of the subject matter on guns. It should fill the void and be political fodder, right? It was a backfire as critics, mostly libs, attacked them for having interviewed only black inmates. Well, strike two. Race over gun control? They thought that throwing a generic disclosure on it to ‘pay no attention to the race factor’ at the beginning would suffice. It didn’t. Right, people looked right at the obvious color of the inmates and made it the issue, rather than guns. That’s what race-hustlers usually do too. Key in on race. So their disclosure didn’t work.

Also amusing is that MSNBC is the network of “prison TV,” as I call it, on weekends. Yet they wonder why their programing doesn’t attract enough viewers? So it was not much of a stretch for Prison TV LLC, to interview inmates on any subject.

Immediately after airing, Chuck had to go on defense of the piece saying “But the last thing we wanted was to cloud the discussion of the topic.” That much is true. They didn’t want to cloud the issue of gun control. They wanted to be straight-up, full-fledged advocates. (lobbyists if you will) And that would make Obama happy. Todd said, “I hope folks view the gun video as a part of the conversation we should all be having and not the totality of it.” Chuck explained it was “too important to put off for another week.”

Todd had said of the interviews:

“The circumstances you are about to see are very different from the racist violence in Charleston. In this case, in the [video] inmates are African-American that you’re going to hear from. But their lessons remain important.”

“And we simply ask you to look at this as a color-blind issue that’s about just simply gun violence.”

What rolled out was mass outrage at the racial bias of the piece — specifically at Chuck Todd — which superseded the gun control issue.

The result was that Tod and NBC ignited a brushfire. But they brought in the accelerant, matches, and the fuel. Plus for days they were dragging the Confederate flag into it on MSNBC. Maybe not the fire they were expecting with the blow-back.

So then it isn’t hard to believe that they also were not content with the unfolding story line in the shooting aftermath enough to try to stir up the public in Charleston. Not that the people didn’t already experience enough, NBC descended like a pack of wolves when they saw the situation was far too peaceful than it should be. No, the people need to be impassioned and fired up if it is to provoke any dialogue or political action. Obama himself said as much. (You don’t think NBC acts all by itself)

Obama in his early statement declared we have the “power to do something about it… but it’d be wrong for us not to acknowledge it.”

Considering the shooter’s racial motives indeed makes some strange bedfellows, MSNBC seems to subscribe to the same notion. They didn’t understand how people weren’t fired up for action, and marching over the shootings. So the slime-sucking carnival barkers of MSNBC couldn’t stand it. They want a story to cover. Something they can sink their teeth into and extort for all its political worth. One that plays into Obama’s agenda, beyond just the gun control one. So far they’re coming up empty. The Fuhrer will not be happy.

On Thursday, Obama wasted no time commenting on the Charleston shootings and his gun control agenda, admitting that once again he “doesn’t have all the facts”. But don’t let that stop him, it never has before.

“We don’t have all the facts, but we do know that, once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun,”

In California, Obama unleashed more specific and fiery rhetoric. At a fundraiser in Santa Monica, he told them “I need you to mobilize:

“If you’re dissatisfied that every few months we have a mass shooting in this country, killing innocent people, then I need you to mobilize and organize a constituency that says this is not normal and we are going to change it, and put pressure to elect people who insist on that change,” Obama said.

“We need a change in attitude. We have to move public opinion,” Obama said. “Ultimately Congress will follow the people,” he declared. Obama boldly stated:

“I refuse to act as if this is the new normal or to pretend that it’s simply sufficient to grieve and that any mention of us doing something to stop it is somehow politicizing the problem.

“We have to shift how we think about this issue and we have the capacity to change, but we have to build a sense of urgency about it.”

He added on his other favorite topic: “We don’t have to look far to see that racism and bigotry, hate and intolerance, are still all too alive in our world.” Obama pushes his dual-track agenda on lecturing, “We have to feel a sense of urgency.”
