The Paris Attacks and the Suicide of the West

On Friday afternoon, as most Americans were looking forward to leaving work, reports started pouring out of Paris of multiple active shooters and coordinated bombing attacks across Paris. At least eight suicide bombers detonated their explosives at key attractions around the city, which were bustling with activity at the start of the weekend’s festivities.

Several bombs were detonated near the Stade de France (soccer stadium) as France played world champion Germany in front of tens of thousands of fans, including French President Francois Hollande, who was rushed to safety by French security services, after which he convened an emergency meeting of his cabinet secretaries.

At the same time, several popular restaurants and bars were attacked by terrorists, plus the Bataclan concert hall where at least eighty fans of the American band Eagles of Death Metal were killed as terrorists stormed the venue, firing into the crowd as they screamed “Allah Akbar!” an Islamic phrase meaning “god is greatest”. Witnesses report the gunfire lasted ten to fifteen minutes before the attackers clashed with the police. Four attackers were killed, including three rigged with suicide vests.

Mizzou Freshman the Most Racist, Homophobic in America

http://www.meridianpeakhypnosis.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/victim-mentality.jpg

The freshman class at the University of Missouri is the most racist, sexist, and homophobic student body in America. After all, it was just last year that Mizzou was lauded by the liberal media all across the land for its tolerance and inclusion after they rallied around Michael Sam, the star football player who had recently announced his homosexuality to the world, when he was being picketed by the hate-mongers from Westboro Baptist Church. Since the faculty is essentially unchanged from last year, the only conclusion we can draw from the recent resignation of university president Tim Wolfe is that he recruited a bunch of racist students over the last year and now must be punished for his sins. After all, how else does one explain Mizzou going from the gold standard of tolerance and diversity to a hotbed of racism, sexism and homophobia in just a single year?

The impetus for the unfolding scandal was the declared hunger strike of one Jonathan Butler, a black student, which would not end until “either Tim Wolfe is removed from office or my internal organs fail and my life is lost”. Butler claimed that the university had consistently failed to address incidents of intolerant behavior.

The primary complaint stems from an incident last month in which a white student jumped on a stage where black students were rehearsing a skit and shouted racial slurs. The evidence for Wolfe’s indifference apparently comes from the fact that Wolfe, riding in his car during the homecoming parade a few days later, did not jump out of the vehicle and prostrate himself before a mob of angry protestors.

Obama Demands School Let Boy Shower With Girls

” ‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’ “ ~ Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll

 

I suspect that Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (writing under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll) would be astounded, were he alive today, to discover that modern liberalism has taken his work not for what it is - a surrealist allegory brimming with social and political insights - but instead as a blueprint for destroying the institutional foundations of society, and crushing any acknowledgment of objective truth.

In this liberal utopia we call America, Rachel Dolezal is black but Clarence Thomas is not (at least not an “authentic” black man), Bruce Jenner is a woman despite having male genitals, and gender is determined by feelings, rather than by DNA. This has led to such bizarre developments as Bruce “Call Me Caitlyn” Jenner holding the title of Glamour Magazine’s “Woman of the Year” while simultaneously being one of the most decorated male Olympians of all time.

It is one thing to watch this bizarre, circus-freak sideshow play out in popular culture, but it is another thing entirely to have these “choices” not only indulged by government, but protected under the law. Yet that is exactly what is occurring under the Obama administration.

Anti-Police Rhetoric Leads to Rise In Violent Crime

“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” ~ Newton’s Third Law of Motion

 

What is it with cops in South Carolina?

They already have one indicted for the murder of a fleeing suspect, and now we are treated to the sight of a resource officer (school cop) flipping a girl out of her desk and wrestling her to the ground. Granted, there are reports of a separate video from another angle showing that the officer was reacting after the girl hit the officer in the face with her fist (and she’s not a small girl), but this type of video is tailor-made to feed into the anti-cop rhetoric being stoked by the likes of Obama and his race-baiting, anti-cop compatriots.

And it may not be equal, but America is seeing there is certainly an opposite reaction to the demonization of law enforcement by the Obama administration and leaders of the major American cities which have been run by liberal Democrats for decades. And that reaction is a deadly one.

Frequently referred to as the “Ferguson effect” in reference to the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting death of a black man, Michael Brown, by a white police officer following a strong-arm robbery, it is the hesitancy of police officers to engage with those possibly engaged in criminal activity, lest they get blame for any resulting violence and face the end of their career, or even prosecution. Police officers are reporting being surrounded by black youths as they get out of their patrol vehicles, recording them even as they taunt them.

Secret Memo Reveals Obama’s Effort to Flood Labor Market With Illegals

“The Congress shall have power… To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization…throughout the United States;” ~ U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 4

“The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States of America.” ~ Presidential candidate Barack Obama, 2008

 

Barack Obama has always had contempt for the rule of law and the separation of powers built into our Constitution, but now that he no longer faces election his utter contempt for any restrictions on his power has been laid bare. He openly subverts the Constitution and smugly dares his feckless Republican opposition to try and stop him, knowing that they rarely will even make the effort, lest they be lectured — again — from the presidential podium.

Profound Ignorance Behind Calls to End 2nd Amendment

http://www.thetribunepapers.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/gun_free_zone_cropped.jpg

The bodies of the Roseburg, Oregon mass shooting victims were not even cold (quite literally) before Obama raced to the cameras demanding more gun control laws, and even suggesting it was time for the U.S. government to confiscate all private firearms. Soon media outlets were flooded talking heads aping Obama’s appeal to ignorance.

Leftist sycophant Linda Valdez, writing in the Arizona Republic, declared it is time to get rid of the 2nd Amendment because it is not working, claiming “It’s killing us. It’s turning grade schools and college campuses into slaughter houses.” She further asserts that “Other rights have reasonable limits that can be discussed and accommodated. The Second Amendment has been turned into the supreme law of the land.”

Liberals condescendingly tell us if we don’t like abortions not to have them, but no such standard applies to gun ownership. They tell us Republicans should stop trying to repeal ObamaCare because is “settled law”, yet they have no such respect for the “settled law” of the 2nd Amendment, enshrined in the Bill of Rights for more than two centuries.

Contrary to the Left’s subtle revisionism, the 2nd Amendment was not included in the Bill of Rights in order to protect the rights of hunters or sports shooters, or even to protect us from the criminal elements of society. It was enshrined in that sacred document to protect us from a far more dangerous entity…our own government.

With Trans-Pacific Partnership, Obama Victim of His Own Lies

Though the talking heads in the media are focused on the intra-party leadership fight following the unexpected and sudden resignation announcement of House Speaker John Boehner, Democrats have an internal battle of their own going on.

On Monday, the United States and Japan, along with ten other North American and Pacific Rim nations (Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Peru, Chile, and Vietnam - which together comprise 36% of the Earth’s global domestic product), concluded negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive trade agreement that seeks to facilitate greater trade among these nations by reducing tariffs and other barriers to trade.

The negotiations, ongoing for the last decade, produced an agreement with mixed results for American interests. For example, U.S. negotiators claim the pact will strengthen intellectual property rights (which will benefit American pharmaceutical and technology companies) and open up foreign markets to American agricultural and dairy products. However, it would also reduce the duration that companies have market exclusivity for their products before they compete with generics.

Trump’s Tax Plan Not Grounded in Reality

https://reclaimourrepublic.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/donald-trump-thumbs-up.jpg?w=640&h=480

Donald Trump, the brash, politically incorrect, self-promoting billionaire businessman turned politician has, in defiance of all political wisdom, rocketed to the top of the polls by tapping into the frustration and anger of the conservative base, which feels betrayed by GOP leadership’s absolute refusal to fight Obama’s lawless actions.

However, he has increasingly received criticism for his bumper-sticker sloganeering brand of campaigning, which has been long on chest-thumping but short on specifics. In response, Trump released recently his income tax reform plan.

From a broad-strokes perspective, there is much to like about Trump’s plan; the elimination of the marriage penalty and the AMT (Alternative Minimum Tax), the elimination of loopholes and deductions, the elimination of the death tax, a reduction in the number of tax brackets and a lowering of the rates (four brackets of 0%, 10%, 20%, and 25%), and a steep reduction in the corporate income tax rate to 15% (a great way to encourage investment in U.S. companies, which now bear the burden of the highest corporate tax rate in the world).

Trump’s plan would also require American multi-nationals to repatriate their offshore capital, encouraged by a 10% repatriation tax rate.

However, as with everything in life, the devil is in the details.

Justice Kennedy Supports Davis’ Refusal to Issue Marriage Licenses

http://www.motherjones.com/files/blog_anthony_kennedy.jpg

Well, not quite, but he did in principle.

On August 9th, 2003, speaking to a meeting of the American Bar Association, Justice Kennedy lashed out at mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenders, saying he could “accept neither the necessity nor the wisdom of federal mandatory minimum sentences. In too many cases, mandatory minimum sentences are unwise and unjust.” In expressing his disdain, he openly advocated for judges refusing to rule based on the explicit statutory requirements, encouraging them to violate the law in issuing more lenient sentences.

Speaking before the House Appropriations Committee, Kennedy went on to praise such contempt for the law, stating “I do think federal judges who depart downward [issue more lenient sentences for drug offenders, in violation of the mandatory sentencing requirements] are courageous…[and judges should not] follow, blindly, these unjust guidelines”.

Yet Kennedy joined his SCOTUS colleagues in denying a hearing for Rowan County (KY) Clerk of Court Kim Davis, who appealed for an exemption to the Court’s opinion legalizing same-sex marriage across the country in the Obergfell case. With that denial, Davis was declared in contempt of court for her continued refusal to issue licenses, and went to jail for it.

So where is Kennedy now? Why is he not coming to her defense?

Liberals Balk At Paying Cost of “Living” Wage

labor living wage

As it turns out, liberals refuse to put their money where their mouths are…literally.

Earlier this year, labor unions in Los Angeles whipped up low-wage workers into a frenzy with demands for a minimum “living” wage of $15 per hour. They achieved their goal and the $15/hour wage bill was signed into law. This was supposed to be a huge victory for the workers (though, it should be noted, within days of the law going into effect, the same labor unions that lobbied for the $15/hour minimum wage were lobbying government for an exemption for union companies, so that union companies could pay well below the new minimum wage).

Even so, some California business owners decided to show solidarity with the cause of low-wage workers, significantly increasing their starting wage of their own volition.

Vic Gumper, owner of Lanesplitter Pizza (with stores in Albany, Berkeley, Oakland, and Emeryville, California), voluntarily raised wages for his employees to between $15 to $25 per hour. In order to cover the cost of the higher “living” wage, Gumper began advertising $30 “living wage pizzas” to his customers, which include patrons from the Pixar Animation Studios and biotech companies located near his shops. In doing so he declared these pizzas “sustainably served, really…no tips necessary”.

The result? Sales have dropped by 25% as liberals in these communities have balked at having to pony up more money for the pizzas. The hit has been so significant that Gumper has had to close during lunch hour at several locations (think about that…a restaurant that has to close during LUNCH because it can’t afford to stay open!).
