Nutty Professor: “Blame a ‘Love Deficit,’ Not Race, for WDBJ Shooting”

This guy is teaching young people at Princeton.  It's no wonder young people are so ignorant and so confused.

This guy is teaching young people at Princeton. It’s no wonder young people are so ignorant and so confused.

CNN Anchor Babe Carol Costello asked Professor Cornel West if he thought race played a part on the on-air shooting of three white people by a black man. The good Cornel got his lips started and couldn’t stop them. He said some really weird things. Disjointed things like:

Justice is what love looks like in public. When you have a love deficit, you have a justice deficit. And the question becomes, how do you make things accountable? I‘m very much in favor of tight gun control.”

Politico Worries: “Can Hillary overcome the ‘liar’ factor?”

Hillary Clinton is known by the American people. They know her as a liar. She has given us plenty of reasons to know her dishonesty. She did not, as she claimed, “Run head down from the plane to avoid sniper fire”. She let four men die in Benghazi, refused to take responsibility for it, and falsely blamed it on an internet video of Mohammad. I don’t need to list every falsehood that has come from her. Americans don’t need a list and we don’t have enough space here.

The only way she can, “Overcome”, her reputation as a serial liar is with other lies. You know that, I know it, and so do a majority of other Americans.

Hillary Rodham Clinton

While Republicans have been test-driving attacks against Clinton for a year and a half, no other line of attack has broken through to this degree. The numbers in a new Quinnipiac University poll are striking: More than 3-in-5 voters, 61 percent, think Clinton isn’t honest and trustworthy. Overall, Clinton’s favorability ratings slipped to 39 percent — her lowest rating since Quinnipiac began polling on Clinton after she and her husband left the White House.

When voters were asked the first word that came to their mind about Clinton, the top three replies were indictments of her trustworthiness. The No. 1response was “liar,” followed by “dishonest” and “untrustworthy.” Overall, more than a third of poll respondents said their first thought about Clinton was some version of: She’s a liar.”

Minnesota Terror Suspect Getting License To Drive School Buses

Amir Meshal

Amir Meshal

A Minnesota man, who Homeland Security identifies as a terror suspect who is on the “No Fly” list, now has his Class A commercial license, which will allow him to drive semi-trucks.
The FOX 9 Investigators revealed last May that Amir Meshal was attempting to get his Class A license from a South St. Paul Truck Driving School. The $4,000 tuition was paid for through the state workforce program.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety confirms he was granted the license after passing a road test on August 8.

[…]

Worry not though, because the man on the U.S. no-fly list might not be focused on driving big rigs all the time. That’s because he’s trying to be licensed to drive school buses.”

This is from Michelle Malkin who links to a source. The source, however, seems to have a paywall.

“Republican Party, R.I.P. (1854 – 2016)”

trump 2

This is from Erick Erickson at Red State.

He has a knack for taking diverse strands, like the failure of Republican leaders to do what they promised in order to get reelected, and weaving them into a story of failure. Unlike the GOP leaders, Erickson reads the dissatisfaction that exists in Republican voters.

The repeated betrayals of Republican leaders have led to the rise of Donald Trump. The petulance of the party’s congressional leaders who have spent more energy fighting conservative attempts to hold them to their word than fighting Barack Obama now have to fight to wrest control from Trump. Trump, at least presently, is immune from establishment attacks because the party leaders have lost all their credibility. A party that will not stand up to stop tax payer funds going to an organization that pulls whole children out of freezers to sell as scrap is not a party with the moral clarity to tell Donald Trump he is fired.”

But it’s not just Trump that they fear and hate. This morning there is news that John Boehner called Ted Cruz a ‘Jackass’.

obama-boehner

Speaker of the House John Boehner stunned audience members Wednesday evening at a Colorado fundraiser by referring to Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz as a “jackass,” two people in attendance tell The Daily Caller.

At a Steamboat Springs event for GOP Rep. Scott Tipton, the Ohio Republican quipped that he likes how Cruz’s presidential campaign keeps “that jackass” out of Washington, and from telling Boehner how to do his job.”

I’d say that is symptomatic of what’s wrong with the party nationally. Is Erickson right? With all these people trying to destroy the entire premise of conservatism is the party doomed to irrelevance?

His Name Is Zion

Break out the tissues. He is wise well beyond his years.

In a surgical first, Philadelphia doctors have transplanted donor hands and forearms onto an 8-year-old boy whose own hands were amputated when he was a toddler.

Zion Harvey told NBC News that the groundbreaking 10-hour operation performed earlier this month at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia was a dream come true. He can’t wait for the day he holds his little sister with his new hands.

“My favorite thing [will be to] wait for her to run into my hands as I pick her up and spin her around,” he said.

His mother, Pattie Ray, was overcome with emotion as she watched her son being wheeled out of the operating room.”

Moonbat: “Why I ate a roadkill squirrel”

George-Monbiot

George-Monbiot

Just as I was about to turn off the road, on to the track that would take me back to the barn, I found a squirrel hit by a car that must have just passed me, dead but still twitching. It was a male, one of this year’s brood but fully grown. Blood seeped from a wound to the head.

I picked it up by its hind feet, and though I had played no part in its death, I was immediately gripped by a sensation so discrete, so distinct from all else we feel, that I believe it requires its own label: hunter’s pride. It’s the raw, feral thrill I have experienced only on the occasions when I have picked up a fresh dead animal I intend to eat.”

“Man Has No Regrets After Arrest For Tampering With Long Island Red-Light Cameras”

“I’m going to show you how easy it is to take the power back,” the 42-year-old says in video that cops got wind of.

20150855dd9facd3f2f

Police say they received anonymous tips regarding a video posted on social media that shows Ruth tampering with the cameras and seemingly encouraging others to do the same.

“I’m going to show you how easy it is to take the power back,” Ruth says in the video. ”It doesn’t take more than a minute and the gratification is huge.”

After he uses an expandable pole to push a camera skyward, he boosts, “I just saved people about $10,000 today.”

Our Betters Think These People Need Nuclear Weapons

From Iran’s leaders:

Oh, and Curt Schilling got fired from ESPN for telling the truth:

schilling-tweet

He has a point, you know, but the politically correct thought police don’t like it. As he says, the numbers do not lie. Consider this difference:

The 1939 population of Germany, according to feldgrau.com was a little over 80.6 million people.

Muslim population worldwide in 2014, according to muslimpopulation.com is 2.08 billion people.

According to my calculation that means at a 5% rate there were about four million Nazis in 1939 and a hundred million radical Muslims last year.

Shrink’s Book: “Hillary Is Lonely, Craves A Woman”

And Huma won’t do.

Hillary Clinton is a lonely woman who has trouble expressing her feelings.
So says Dr. Alma Bond, a psychoanalyst and author who holds a PhD from Columbia University and did post doctorate studies from the Freudian Society. She has been studying Hillary Clinton from afar for many years.
The Democratic presidential candidate has difficulty with men and she needs a woman friend on her same political level that she can share strategy or top secret events of the day.
Dr. Bond suggests that Hillary, 67, has unsuccessfully looked for a female equal for years, despite the closeness of her assistant and closest aide, Huma Abedin.”

Dr. Bond is not Hillary's personal shrink, but has studied the presidential candidate from afar

Bond concludes that ultimately she believes Hillary is ‘a wonderful human being with deep flaws, whom anyone would be lucky to call a friend’.”

A Glimpse Into The Mind Of a Hero – And Someone To Emulate

This is the story of a Canadian nurse who found herself off the road in her vehicle with no way to escape and broken feet. A few of us may have heard of stories like this. Fewer still know people like this. Rare are people like this nurse.

I noticed my feet were real broken,” she said. “They were twisted to the side. My little nurse brain was like, you’ve got to straighten those up because you’re going to…lose your blood supply and then you’re going to lose your legs. I just prayed for a while and so I then picked them up and I moved them. It was really painful but I did it.”

Child Reporter Says Border Walls Might Be Dangerous For Illegals

They might fall, you know. Clare Foran, writing in National Journal, whines, “Donald Trump’s Border Wall Could Have Deadly Consequences”.

Clare Foran

Clare Foran

According to her bio she is there as an ‘Energy reporter’. She includes this image to show how scary it would be:

high fence

Donald Trump wants America to build a permanent wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. “We’ll have a great wall. We’ll call it the Great Wall of Trump,” the real estate mogul told Fox Business recently.

If that ever happens, the consequences could be deadly for the hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who attempt to cross the border each year, many of whom are unlikely to be deterred by even the greatest of walls.

Tightening security at America’s southern border will inevitably make it more difficult to illegally traverse. But immigration and security experts warn that any effort to seal off the border will also make conditions more dangerous for the unauthorized immigrants who still try to make it over.”

Yep, and they are too stupid to be careful.

“New Windows 7/8/8.1 updates spy on you just like Windows 10”

Samsung-laptop-702x336

Microsoft is pushing KB3075249 and KB3080149 updates for Windows 7/8/8.1 users which can spy on you

Windows 10 has been launched and already installed by more than 50 million users worldwide. It is now a known fact that Windows 10 user data is being reported back to Microsoft servers back in Redmond. The jury is still out whether this a good or bad practice but many of Windows 10 Apps like Cortana depend on getting your preferences correct to serve you better.

This being the case, many Windows users who are not happy with Windows 10 spying ways and have preferred to stay on with Windows 7/Windows 8 and Window 8.1 as the case might be. For these Windows 7/8/8.1 users there are a few updates which Microsoft has been pushing through last few days.

Namely, KB3075249 and KB3080149, if installed are known to report your data back to Microsoft servers.”

You Know, We Have Been Praying For Someone Like This For Years

There is a nice article over at Noisy Room titled, ‘Ted Cruz: Rise Of The Evangelical & Constitutional Warrior’. It made me think.

Ted-Cruz-Religious-Rally4-e1440440337471

We have been watching Senator Cruz for some time but with blinders on. We see him as a Constitutional lawyer, someone who is dedicated to our founding documents and the people who wrote them.

But there is so much more to Cruz. Almost no one is talking about his love of God. The left and the media are intentionally not bringing it up. Because we get most of our news from them neither are we. But Cruz has been arranging meetings at all levels among the religious leaders and followers wherever he goes. From the article:

Ted Cruz has made the evangelical vote a cornerstone of his political campaign for the presidency in 2016. This week he will launch a 50 state campaign to defund the butchers of Planned Parenthood. It is a move that is sure to be wildly popular among conservatives. His father, Rafael Cruz, must be incredibly proud of this.

Cruz invited more than 100,000 pastors via email over the weekend to take part in conference calls with him starting this week, where they will be given details on a plan to mobilize church attendees in every congressional district beginning on August 30th. This followed Cruz’s Rally for Religious Liberty that drew a crowd of over 3,000 to Iowa last week.”

This is a big deal and almost no one outside of his guest lists is paying attention. If we continue to ignore his work he will fail. We have long wished for, prayed for, and bemoaned the lack of a candidate who would follow the laws of the land and follow God’s laws. Here he is, folks. Your prayers have been answered. It’s now our turn to do our part. Again, the closing paragraph from the article:

You wonder why we have a federal government that comes after our free-speech rights, that comes after our religious liberty, that comes after life, that comes after marriage, that comes after our values,” Cruz said, blaming that state of affairs again on the 54 million evangelicals who stayed home during the 2012 presidential election. “I’m here to tell you,” Cruz said, “we will stay home no longer.” Ted Cruz is the evangelical and constitutional warrior we have waited for. Now, it’s our turn to fight for our freedoms and our faith.”

Politico: “The ultimate argument in favor of the Iran deal”

Yeah. That makes as much sense as anything else that’s come out of this White House:

“The agreement would make it easier to bomb Iran, administration officials have told lawmakers.”

U.S. Military Takes Action

Want to bomb Iran? Then support the nuclear deal.
That’s the provocative argument coming from Obama administration officials and other backers of the deal as they promote it before a crucial vote in Congress next month.

In meetings on Capitol Hill and with influential policy analysts, administration officials argue that inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities under the deal will reveal important details that can be used for better targeting should the U.S. decide to attack Iran.”

‘Hussein Sheikholeslam’ What Kind Of Name Is That?

“Iranian Official: We “Reject the Existence of Any Israeli on This Earth””

Hussein Sheikholeslam

Hussein Sheikholeslam

Hussein Sheikholeslam, a senior adviser to Iran’s Speaker of Parliament, told the Hamas-affiliated newspaper al-Resalah that Tehran “reject[s] the existence of any Israeli on this earth,” a position he says Iran relayed to the P5+1 powers during the nuclear negotiations, The Times of Israel reported Wednesday. According to Sheikholeslam, Iran “will do everything to renew” its support for Hamas, which Tehran lessened in retaliation to the Sunni group’s opposition to the regime of Bashar al-Assad after the outbreak of the Syrian civil war.

Sheikholeslam’s comments are the latest in a series of threats issued against Israel by Iran since the Islamic Republic signed a nuclear agreement with the P5+1 powers last month.”

Great Quote From National Review

“The Obama administration’s nuclear agreement is nothing more than a stimulus package for jihad.”

150822-iran-killing-americans

Iran Is Responsible for More Than 1,000 American Military Deaths Since 9/11

Iranian military action, often working through proxies using terrorist tactics, has led to the deaths of well over a thousand American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last decade and a half.

Throughout the course of the Iraq campaign, a variety of weapons flowed into the country through direct purchases by the government of Iran. These included Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFPs), a shaped charge designed to penetrate armor. These weapons – often camouflaged as rocks – were identical to those employed by Hizbullah against Israeli forces. In 2006, the British Telegraph revealed that three Iranian factories were “mass producing” the roadside EFP bombs used to kill soldiers in Iraq . . .

Iran paid Taliban fighters $1,000 for each U.S. soldier they killed in Afghanistan. The Sunday Times reported that a Taliban operative received $18,000 from an Iranian firm in Kabul as reward for an attack in 2010 that killed several Afghan government troops and destroyed an American armored vehicle.”

New York Post: “As Hillary implodes, the Democrats have no real Plan B”

Once Hillary Clinton implodes, the Democrats only have Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden waiting in the wings.

Once Hillary Clinton implodes, the Democrats only have Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden waiting in the wings.

Best quotes from the article:

The summer has not been kind to Hillary Clinton. The drip-drip-drip of revelations about her possible misuse and mishandling of classified information threatens to become a deluge in the fall. They have taken a serious toll on her reputation — and even more notably, her treatment by liberal media figures who surely would rather she be elected even if the Risen Christ were to be the Republican nominee.”

and:

He is, let’s face it, a pretty silly person. Hillary is many things, but silly she isn’t. The more Biden speaks — and he speaks a lot — the more likely he is to utter something ridiculous. Or grab some unsuspecting supporter for a back rub.”

And Sanders?

What of Democratic flavor-of-the-month Bernie Sanders? Please. When conservatives say Barack Obama is a socialist, liberals scream at us. But Bernie Sanders is a socialist, full stop. And even in 2016 America, that’s a bridge too far for all but a handful of states.”

Besides, he looks and sounds like a dunce. He is the worst public speaker I have ever heard.
