    Flopping Aces ^ | 07-29-15 | James Raider
    Addressing a gaggle of dictators comprising the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Obama feigned a weak lament that although he considered himself a good president, he could not run again. That pesky thing called a Constitution that his Administration has trampled on for six years was in the way.  "I cannot run again.  I can't run again," he sighed.  Having suffered headaches from listening to a lack of veracity in his pronouncements over the years, I thought, something's not right here.  What has he really done? The answer was simple.  My sense is that the strategy to retain power was likely developed during the...

    Mexican drug cartels are smuggling foreigners from countries with terrorist links into a small Texas rural town near El Paso and they’re using remote farm roads—rather than interstates—to elude the Border Patrol and other law enforcement barriers, according to Judicial Watch sources on both sides of the Mexico-U.S. border. The foreigners are classified as Special Interest Aliens (SIA) and they are being transported to stash areas in Acala, a rural crossroads located around 54 miles from El Paso on a state road – Highway 20. Once in the U.S., the SIAs wait for pick-up in the area’s sand hills just...

    “Ready to get uncomfortable with us?” asked the official MTV Twitter account on Wednesday, preparing its audience for the documentary White People, which aired that night. In the hour-long special, Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter Jose Antonio Vargas talks to young people — many of them white — about race in America. While white people aren’t the only ones talking, they are involved in every conversation, and each segment has some focus on the white experience of race: a white guy who goes to a historically black college, the white teachers at a school on an Oglala Sioux reservation, white people who...

    The Social Memo ^ | 7/29/15 | Aurelius
    Protesters have taken it upon themselves to lecture Japanese people about "cultural appropriation" of Japanese culture by whites. The bizarre interaction took place at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The museum has been holding an exhibit encouraging visitors to wear a kimono to celebrate Claude Monet’s painting “La Japonaise.” The largely non-Japanese protesters decided that this exhibit was a form of "cultural appropriation" of Japanese culture. They have been protesting the event for weeks, calling the museum "white supremacist" and "racist." Now, a counter-protest which includes Japanese women are taking the "cultural appropriation" protesters to task. The counter-protesters...

In a post published on the union's official Facebook page, the students claimed that "an oppressed group cannot be racist against a dominant group (white people)." The UTM student union added the "(white people)." The student union explained that minorities can't be racist towards whites because they do not hold a position of power. Yes, minorities can hate whites because of the color of their skin, but that is not racist. That's "prejudice," according to the group. You can see the post below:

Along with repeating his claims about rapists and criminals, Trump added the argument that “tremendous infectious disease is pouring across the border,” among other extreme assertions. While many of Trump’s fellow GOP presidential hopefuls have worked to distance themselves from his xenophobia, Senator Ted Cruz has supported Trump. And prominent right-wing media leaders have likewise expressed their agreement, from Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity to Ann Coulter, whose most recent book, Adios America!, is an extended, xenophobic diatribe against...

    In addition to harassing conservative activist groups it also was discovered that the IRS has been using these groups’ donor lists to select which taxpayers will be subjected to audits. President Obama blamed the Republican Congress for this outcome, saying that “if they weren’t so stingy with the agency’s budget this might not have had to happen. Ideally, the IRS should audit everybody’s tax returns, but this would require more employees and a bigger budget. Faced with the necessity to limit the number of returns it audits, the IRS made a reasonable decision to narrow the scope of its efforts.”...

    It’s sometimes said that you can tell a lot about a person by the friends they keep. That makes sense. Friendships are generally based on complementary personalities, shared values, and a variety of intangibles that cause people to bond. Money in politics is a similar barometer. The vast majority of Americans never donate any money to politicians or get involved in politics at all. For all of the kvetching about money in politics, there’s really not that much there. In 2012 a total of $6 billion was spent on politics. That includes spending by campaigns, outside groups, and independent organizations....

In Michigan, teachers pay $183 a year to the NEA as part of membership in the Michigan Education Association.

Jeb Bush smells like money.  The scent emanates from him like a perfume, and it attracts the rich, establishment types from both parties in the same way Reagan attracted blue-collar workers to his cause.  This is all the more ironic and remarkable since...

    Both the Michigan House and Senate have passed their own road funding plans after the colossal failure of Proposal 1. Both plans show that lawmakers have learned from that debacle. The House proposal contains only a small tax hike on diesel, plus modest new assessments on electric, hybrid or “alternative” fuel vehicles (whose owners pay little or no gas tax). The rest of its new revenue for roads comes from earmarking a portion of future income tax revenue to road funding. The Senate likewise earmarks some income tax revenue for roads, but also hikes the gas tax from 19 cents...

    Chris Rock summed up the black experience in the United States kind of perfectly during his HBO special Never Scared more than a decade ago: “If you’re black, you got to look at America a little bit different,” he joked, stone-faced. “You got to look at America like the uncle who paid for you to go to college but who molested you.” Since then, that “generous” uncle has moved from molesting to killing, with the list of victims growing by the day: the Charleston 9. Freddie Gray. Michael Brown. Rekia Boyd. Eric Garner. Tamir Rice. John Crawford III. Yuvette Henderson....

    Fact Check: Is Obama a State Sponsor of Terrorism? "If this deal goes through the Obama administration becomes the leading financier of terrorism against Americans in the world." July 27, 2015 Daniel Greenfield    Obama made headlines by complaining that Republicans are being mean to him over the Iran deal. “We’ve had a sitting senator call John Kerry ‘Pontius Pilate.’ We’ve had a sitting senator who also happens to be running for president suggest that I’m the leading state sponsor of terrorism,” Obama said, referring to Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Ted Cruz of Texas, respectively. “These are leaders...

    Last year a retired Border Patrol Officer by the name of Zach Taylor went on camera to explain the driving force behind the unprecedented surge in illegal immigration happening on our southern border. Taylor went on to note that what was happening at our border was not due to a spur of the moment event, or “a humanitarian crisis”, but asymmetrical warfare. The surge we saw at the border was a part of a larger, more chilling event that served one purpose and one purpose only, to show our enemies that our southern border had been compromised and the government...

      Barack Obama is a liar of biblical proportions. That's not new, but every now and then he spouts something that makes you want to scream "Are you effing kidding me?" And he's done it again. His Weekly Address yesterday was a beauty. He starts by patting himself on the back as usual: Hi, everybody. It’s been seven years since the worst financial crisis in generations spread from Wall Street to Main Street – a crisis that cost millions of Americans their jobs, their homes, their life savings. It was a crisis that cost all of us. It was a reminder that...

    It looks like the Occupy Democrats Facebook page has a problem with making intelligent memes. (like this one)I'm NO FAN of John McCain, but you can count me as one of those who didn't like what Trump had said about him. I also wasn't a fan of the other comment, but there are 4 reasons this meme needs to XYZ, because it's stupid is showing: None of what Trump said is motivated race, people were outraged because he was disparaging the service of a POW, dubious as some think it might be. Leave it to liberals to elevate illegal immigration to what...

    Young conservative CJ Pearson, who became famous for attacking President Obama on YouTube, tweeted his endorsement of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for president Monday. This is a turnaround from the 12-year-old's April endorsement of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. Cruz responded on Twitter saying, "Grateful for your support. Let's #MakeDCListen and break the #WashingtonCartel!" The switch came after Cruz took to the Senate floor on Friday to accuse Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of lying. According to Cruz, McConnell promised 54 Republican senators that "there was no deal" with senators trying to revive the Export-Import Bank. But Friday, McConnell began procedures...
