  • Lefty compassion run amok for illegal who mowed down cyclist

    Bicycles and illegals don't mix on busy city streets in Chicago. No, wait: They actually mix a lot, and that's a problem. A Chicago bike-safety activist, who made it her business to erect bicycles spray-painted white on city streets where cyclists were killed as a reminder to drivers to look out for cyclists, decided that that issue wasn't all that important in cases where the driver is illegal. Which turned out to be her own assault by an incautious illegal alien driver. In her mind, being illegal trumped the very bike safety she spent time erecting monuments to. One set...

    Tamar Braxton Responds to Delta Airlines’ Statement Rebuking Her ‘Unusual Behavior’ Wednesday, August 1, 2018 Tamar Braxton has responded to a Delta Airlines statement blaming her “unusual behavior” and her refusal to follow a flight attendant’s instructions during a recent flight. Tamar’s sister Towanda accused a Delta pilot of ridiculing Tamar after the pilot left the safety of the reinforced cockpit to deal with the part-time singer’s unruly behavior. “@tamarbraxton got ridiculed by a pilot for flying while black on Delta,” Towanda wrote in an Instagram post dated July 28. “Wow! I guess being a diamond and double million miler...
  • If We Silence Hate Speech, Will We Silence Resistance?

    The Failing New York Times ^ | 8/9/2018 | Erik Nielson
    “Hate” is a dangerously elastic label. And it has long been used to demonize unpopular expression, particularly among people of color. Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and most other major internet distributors took a bold step this week when they all but banned content from Infowars, a website run by the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. The tech companies cited their policies against hate speech for their decision, rather than the trafficking in fake news by Infowars. It’s tempting to applaud this move, but we should be wary. While Mr. Jones’s rhetoric is certainly repugnant, mounting pressure from the political left...
  • We Cannot Remain Silent on Jerusalem

    B”H We Cannot Remain Silent on Jerusalem Two events in 5752 (around Jan. 1992) compel everyone to speak up about what happened in Jerusalem last week. On the 3rd of Shvat the Lubavitcher Rebbe indirectly, but clearly, charged chasidim to go forth and speak in his name/say what needs to be said. 12 days later, on Tu BShvat, the Rebbe stopped Shamir's minister in a dollar line. Many prophetic things were said and indeed it led to the fall of a government and later a president arose and fell after not heeding the warnings, but what's relevant here is the...
  • Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Too Far Left for Hollywood?

    **SNIP** In a break with tradition, Ocasio-Cortez, who labels herself a democratic socialist, has no plans to meet with any of the entertainment industry's Democratic political power brokers while she is in town. She will not be having coffee with Carl Reiner. There will be no sitdown with Jeffrey Katzenberg or David Geffen. No $5,000-a-plate dinner at Robert Iger's mansion in Brentwood. "None of our clients are meeting with her," says Marie Lloyd of the political and philanthropic consultancy Gonring, Spahn & Associates, which counts Katzenberg and Steven Spielberg as clients. And none of the other political operatives or members...

    Liberal-leftism is a mental illness. To find out whether you are afflicted with this deadly and largely incurable condition here is a simple test based on recent events. A man named Faisal Hussain has gone on a gun rampage in Toronto, killing two, wounding 13. [snip] Do you: a) Think of the victims – especially the two fatal casualties (Reese Fallon, 18; and ten-year old Julianna Kozis) – and their heartbroken friends and families. [snip] b) Fabricate a narrative in which the attack has nothing to do with Islam. Call out and vilify anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Reserve all...
  • A California city would jail people for handing out straws(Attack of the NannyState)

    Fox News ^ | 7-25-2018 | Andrew O'Reilly
    A California coastal city has become the latest municipality to ban plastic straws, enacting what is potentially the strictest plastic prohibition in the country. Santa Barbara earlier this month passed the ordinance authorizing hefty fines and even a possible jail sentence for violators who dole out plastic straws at restaurants, bars and other food establishments. According to the ordinance, violators on their first offense will be given a written warning notice. But the second time a purveyor of plastic straws defies the ban is when the heavy hand of the law could clamp down. In that case, the ordinance cites...

    American Thinker ^ | July 16,2018 | Gary Gindler
    American politics have borrowed a lot of ideas from sports. Nowadays, everyone has become familiar with certain phrases that we use in everyday life, often without even thinking about their origins. For example, the phrase "pull no punches" originated in boxing, and the proverbial "drop the ball” came from football. The well-known rule of "three strikes and you're out" came from baseball. The latter is the best way to characterize President Trump's attitude toward Vladimir Putin. It seems that leftists in America still cannot forgive Putin for the destruction of the ideals that were nurtured in the West by the...

    The woman who scaled the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday has been identified. Cops say Therese Patricia Okoumou — a 44-year-old immigrant from the Democratic Republic of the Congo — was the person responsible for the Fourth of July protest. She lives in the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island and is currently in federal custody, according to police sources. Officers from the NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit transported her to a federal detention center on Wednesday night following her three-hour standoff with authorities. Her case is being handled by prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.

    Exit polls show baseball-loving nationalist who counts Jeremy Corbyn as a friend is set to become new president. A baseball-loving left-wing nationalist who has vowed to crack down on corruption, rein in Mexico’s war on drugs and rule for the poor has been elected president of Latin America’s second-largest economy, exit polls suggested on Sunday night. Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a silver-haired 64-year-old who is best known as Amlo and counts Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn among his friends, was set to be elected with 49% of the vote, according to a poll conducted by the El Financiero newspaper. López Obrador’s...

    The story of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders being kicked out of a Virginia restaurant by the owner, Stephanie Wilkinson, takes on more context today as Mike Huckabee explained during a radio interview. According to Mr. Huckabee the owner of the Red Hen restaurant not only kicked out Sarah Sanders and her in-laws, but she followed them to another restaurant, organized a group of people to assist her efforts, and then led the mob in continued harassment of the Sanders family. Mike Huckabee was interviewed by Laura Ingraham for her radio show: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/06/25/red-hen-restaurant-owner-followed-sanders-family-to-next-restaurant-to-continue-harassment/

    Protesters confronted Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi at a showing of a documentary about children’s TV host Fred Rogers, and they questioned the Republican’s stands on immigration and health care. The Tampa Bay Times reports Bondi received a police escort Friday when several members of the left-wing group Organize Florida confronted her as she left a Tampa theater after seeing Won’t You Be My Neighbor about Mr. Rogers. The demonstrators questioned Florida joining a lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act and Bondi’s general support of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. Bondi protester Maria Jose Chapa said was an impromptu demonstration...

    A New Jersey professor said Thursday that he “officially” “now hate[s] white people” in a Facebook post that was subsequently deleted. James Livingston, the Rutgers University history professor who made the remarks, proceeded to detail “little Caucasian a**holes” that annoyed him at a restaurant. “OK, officially, I now hate white people,” Livingston said. “I am a white people [sic], for God’s sake, but can we keep them — us — us out of my neighborhood? I just went to Harlem Shake on 124 and Lenox for a Classic burger to go, that would [be] my dinner, and the place is...

    Teachers' unions are changing their tactics to maintain 'political clout' and salvage potential losses...Their new message? Anyone can join the union. A new membership category called “Community Allies,” open to “any person who demonstrates support in advancing the cause of public education.” It is of dubious legality, as unions are created to represent employees in a certain field, not to wield political influence. Yet, if this plan succeeds, the National Educators Association will be able to solicit these new “members” for PAC donations, a fact that could extend their political reach even further beyond where it is now. The National...

    Leftists love to claim that President Trump is the reincarnation of Hitler and that he's a Nazi, or maybe a fascist. They never supply any facts to substantiate their claims. They seem to be immune to logic. Yesterday, I visited the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, where a million and a half Jews were murdered in a most vile demonstration of human depravity. A new picture was driven home to me in a most forceful manner. The master race theory that allowed the Germans to believe that their actions were acceptable was developed by American Democrat political philosophers. Hitler's Nazis were happy...

    Over decades, it has become increasingly clear that the Left depends on an endless iteration & reiteration of blind assertions--neither supported nor supportable in logic--rather than reasoned argument. Lest one assume that all--as opposed to some or most--Leftists are dysfunctional, let us look more closely at their apparent penchant, seldom to focus on actual causation for what they perceive as a problem, to see if there is not a deliberate effort to misdirect attention from what actually works for human betterment. We start with particularly absurd phenomena, which reveal a great deal about individual motives, bias & intentions, going well...

    70 years ago this week, Israel regained her statehood. And from that moment, the plot to destroy her has been in full motion on multiple fronts. Likewise, here in America, explosive charges have been set under the core pillars of our Christian beliefs. From undermining marriage, to socializing education, from banning First Amendment free speech if it doesn't agree with the PC rhetoric, to removing to enumerated rights found in the 2nd Amendment intended to protect the rights of the First, the lot has been cast for the total destruction of society as we know it, in order to reunite...

It must be done, however, so below are a few more recent examples from the past month, categorized appropriately. A quick scan of the stories will illustrate to anyone how bankrupt our modern intellectual and political culture has become. Worse, it appears with time that the levels of emotional hate and bigotry are only growing."
