  • NOT the full text of President Obama’s statement on the Islamofascist Paris murders [Satire]

    The last thing Frenchmen and Frenchwomen should have to do, over the holidays or any day, is comfort the families of people killed by Islamic violence -- people who woke up in the morning and bid their loved ones goodbye with no idea it would be for the last time. And yet, two weeks before Thanksgiving, that’s what we are forced to do again. We know that Islam is the so-called motive of these particular gunmen and bombers for killing 130 people, wounding hundreds more, and terrorizing an entire community, when they opened fire with illegal assault weapons and took...

    Our most prestigious universities now require diversity training for everyone coddled by un-Islamic aberrations based on Christian, Jewish, sexist and white privilege. Obama, bravely leading as always from the front, will follow them to combat Islamophobic speech and thought which He recently decreed to be felonies.During His Thanksgiving address this year, Obama likened the current crop of Syrian and other Islamic refugees to the Pilgrims who came to America many years ago. This Thanksgiving, President Obama is calling for Americans to lend a helping hand to another group of pilgrims fleeing persecution. “Nearly four centuries after the Mayflower set sail,...

    Contender for the Democratic presidential nomination Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-Vt) made an effort to define democratic socialism in a speech to Georgetown University students this week. "Unlike the socialism imposed by Lenin or Mao, democratic socialism allows voters to select who will rule over them," Sanders said. "With the backing of the electorate, these rulers will redress the inequities stemming from inequalities that are no fault of the individual." Sanders asserted "the notion that a person's hard work might entitle him to a disproportionate share of the world's wealth is just plain wrong. A person's ability to work hard is...

    A report indicating that 9,000 businesses have relocated headquarters and other operating units outside of California in the last seven years was hailed by Governor Jerry Brown (D) as "encouraging news." According to the report prepared by Joseph Vranich, a site selection consultant and president of Irvine, California-based Spectrum Location Solutions, the exiting companies experienced cost-savings of 20-35%. "Some will try to characterize this as a loss for the state, but I don't see it that way," Brown said. "Wage-slavery is one the greatest infringements on personal freedom in our time. By inducing 9,000 exploiters to leave we are reducing...

    Data for 2014—the latest year available—indicates that burglars absconded with $3.9 billion worth of victims’ property. At the same time, “civil forfeiture” made off with $4.5 billion worth. The civil forfeiture statute was initially sold as a tool for coping with organized crime. It has morphed into crime wave in which police seize cash from individuals on the slimmest of pretexts and dare the owner to try to get it back through cumbersome and costly procedures. A favored tactic is to assert that any cash that a person may be carrying was obtained via criminal activity. As proof, police cite...

    Despite urging from a variety of left-wing luminaries, discussions in most households over the Thanksgiving holiday did not pan out as hoped. Early summations of conversations picked up from eavesdropping by "smart TVs" revealed that the vast majority leaned toward right-wing views. "The President asked Americans to talk about gun control," Press Secretary Josh Earnest said. "They did, but the gist of the sentiment was that more people wanted to arm themselves. Likewise, conversations about immigration evinced a preference for less of it. And practically no one seemed concerned about global climate change. Obviously, American opinion is not where it...

    Frustrated by the growing exasperation of Americans with his feckless foreign policy, President Obama told members of his inner circle of advisers that he blames the media for "creating the widespread perception that Islamic terror is a serious problem. The number of persons killed by Islamists in the United States in any given year is tiny. The number of persons killed by home-grown criminals is over 15,000 per year. Yet, wall-to-wall coverage of an isolated outbreak in Paris earlier this month has vaulted this one category of violence to the forefront." "Even worse, the attention incites more violence by its...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senior U.S. officials are literally calling "fowl" after the Thanksgiving turkey pardoned by President Obama publicly defected to the Middle Eastern terrorist group ISIS. Popcorn the Turkey, now calling himself Babakurn al-Turki, was pardoned from the dinner table only yesterday by President Obama in a public ceremony at the White House. Normally the pardoned bird is sent along with its competitor to live out its remaining days at Morven Park's Turkey Hill in Leesburg, Virginia. However, U.S. officials have now admitted that al-Turki instead hijacked an Osprey out of Andrews Air Force Base in nearby Maryland and...

Doesn’t everybody go a bit overboard for Thanksgiving? Where’s the %#@! banana cream!Unfortunately the feast was held up as another nut job scaled the fence and forced a 3 hour lockdown. If I were a Syrian refugee, could I do this? Whew! That was a close call; have you ever seen Lady M when her blood sugar drops to dangerously low levels? Trust me, not a pretty sight.Fortunately...

    PETA and Hannibal are urging Americans to go vegetarian this Thanksgiving by comparing turkey to human flesh. It used to be the joke that a Puritan (aka Pilgrim) was someone who lay awake at night worrying that someone, somewhere, was having a good time. There aren't many Puritans around these days. Instead, we have the joyless scolds at PETA, and some of their not-so-bright Hollywood pals, trying to ruin the holiday the Pilgrims originated. Just in time for Thanksgiving, creator Bryan Fuller and star Gillian Anderson of NBC's cannibal-themed show Hannibal joined forces with PETA to produce an ad against...

Read it here. It's hilarious and totally spot on. He wrote it in response to this Think Progress piece which encourages their readers to make the Thanksgiving dinner table a battleground for propagandizing for Obamacare. I like Jon's approach. However, you can also try my much more passive aggressive approach, which would be mostly for the benefit of the kids, but could also be applicable to any other mental Peter...

And today, there’s no greater threat to our planet than climate change.” It only seems like Islamo-fascists have been trying to wipe out Western civilization for as long as earth’s climate has been changing. “Stifle yourself! You’re causing global warming/cooling/climate change.”The truth however is that the earth’s climate has been changing since it’s inception while the Muslim scourge has only been in our midst for the better part...

    A new ordinance sponsored by New York City Councilman Donovan Richards (D-Queens) would bar tenants of government-subsidized housing from smoking in their apartments. The rule would apply to an estimated 178,000 units controlled by the City's Housing Authority. Richards maintained that "as hard as it may be on some of the tenants, the measure is for their own good. The fact that a person lives in subsidized housing is a pretty good indication of a basic lack of competence to make good decisions," he said. "Inability to support yourself imposes this burden on someone else. Whenever that someone else is...

    While acknowledging that the law requiring medical practitioners to conduct abortions may violate the moral objections of some individuals, a Swedish court ruled that "a citizen's legal obligation to obey the law takes precedence over a private right of conscience." The case arose when nurse Ellinor Grimmark sought to be excused from assisting in abortion procedures. "I did not seek to impose my will upon the patients seeking these procedures," Grimmark said. "I only sought to avoid complicity in this crime against the human rights of the little children." Judge Lief Niflheim was not entirely unsympathetic to Grimmark's position, but...

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) and President Obama vowed they would block a House-passed measure to increase scrutiny of refugees from Syria and Iraq. Concern that terrorists might be hiding among those seeking to escape the war zone led to a veto-proof 289-137 bipartisan majority favoring the bill. Under the bill, the Department of Homeland Security, FBI and director of National Intelligence would have to certify a refugee posed no security threat before he or she could be admitted into the United States.

Police would have been confused over who were the perpetrators.”...

    During last weekend's Democratic debate, Planned Parenthood tweeted that "every child deserves the opportunity to live up to their God given potential." The tweet was intended to support presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who has been a stalwart backer of the organization. Inasmuch as Planned Parenthood has accounted for the termination of the lives of tens of millions of children since 1973's Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, many found the tweet ironic. "Not so," insisted President Cecile Richards. "When you look at the home environments that would have awaited the vast majority of those aborted it should be clear that...

    Over the past several months there has been a public discussion about what to do with the mass migration of Syrian refugees traveling to the West, fleeing from violence. The recent attacks in Paris have raised concerns about ISIS operatives posing as innocents fleeing from violence. Some leaders in Europe and the United States have seized upon this heinous incident to reverse the decision to welcome Syrian refugees. While these positions are understandable, they are also misguided. In fact, welcoming Syrian refugees into America helps our nation in the long fight against ISIS by undermining the terrorist group's recruitment message....

    Please, can we stop pandering to this suicidal ideology posing as a religion! Wait, what? You’re talking about Islam? I thought we were talking aboutGlobal Warming. I guess in the realm of relativism and moral equivalency they might both be considered the same.This could be the result of Radical Islam…or global warming. Whatever.

Mr. Obama added that the downing of the Russian airliner could have been averted had the Russian government adopted his soft drink strategy. "My administration has taken a leading role in reducing soft drink consumption...
