The City Of Honolulu Has Invented An Easy Source Of Revenue

“Cops Go Car To Car In Traffic Jam, Issue $18,000 in Fines for Cellphone Use at a Near Dead Stop”

Hawaii News Now – KGMB and KHNL

Honolulu, Hawaii – Writing tickets was like shooting fish in a barrel for Honolulu police earlier this month when they went car to car issuing citations for cell phone use.

According to motorists, police moved into the middle of the street during the worst traffic jam in years and began a ticket writing assembly line that made them over $18,000. In total, 65 drivers were given tickets that amounted to $290 a piece.

In an extreme traffic situation like this, it is understandable for people to use their phones to contact loved ones and rearrange their plans. This is especially important for those who are responsible for taking care of children or elderly people.

Police representatives admit that the ticketing strategy was unfair, but they claim that this operation was pre-planned and that the officers were not opportunistically taking advantage of the traffic jam.”

No. Of Course Not. Listen to the leaders of the force.

We Celebrate Anzac Day With Our Australian And New Zealand Cousins

Anzac Day is a rememberance of the 25th of April, 1915 when Australians, New Zealanders, and others from the British Commonwealth sloshed ashore at Anzac Bay, Gallipoli to be slaughtered by Turkish forces.

This was near the beginning of World War I. Yesterday we reported on the Armenian Genocide that started about this same time. The Turks were allied with Germany against American and British troops. The offensive at Anzac was an attempt to open the Dardanalles to shipping. It had been closed by Turkish officials who remain in control today. The city of Istanbul straddles the straits.

Australians still remember the bitter defeat. War is unbelievably ugly. Listen to Liam Clancy tell about it:

Out: Mud Packs. In: Foreskin Facials

main-hydrafacial

What is the secret to a smooth, younger-looking complexion?
Foreskin, apparently. Baby foreskin to be exact.

The anti-aging industry is a billion dollar one, and both men and women will try just about anything to get a youthful appearance.

Better known as a HydraFacialMD, the treatment claims to be highly effective at improving overall skin health and remedying fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture and advanced signs of aging — among other things.

Dr. Gail Naughton, who developed the technology, told NY Magazine, “As we age, our cells divide at a slower rate, which contribute to the telltale signs of aging, like wrinkles and loss of firmness and luminosity. Growth factors captured from the donated foreskin of a baby (just one can generate over a million treatments) are at their peak ability in promoting rapid cell turnover. Applied topically, they spur adult skin cells to regenerate. This is said to have a smoothing effect on the skin.”

Not surprisingly this is from CBS News New York

“Republicans Who Voted For Loretta Lynch Voted For The Abuse Of Executive Power”

“Mitch McConnell could have made a case against Obama’s overreach. Now, he’s complicit.”

Obama-McConnell-998x699

This is from The Federalist. I agree with it.

Americans voted to give control of the Congress to Republicans. They promised to fight the leftists and to oppose executive overreach. We didn’t trust them and now we know we were right. John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have been caving to President Obama and the left.

It’s pretty simple. After years of griping about Barack Obama’s abuse of executive power, the GOP finally has a chance to do something about it.

So Mitch McConnell makes a deal: If Democrats agree to stop blocking a human trafficking bill over some boilerplate language regarding abortion funding—a position that made them look unreasonable—Republicans, with all the leverage imaginable, will help confirm another attorney general nominee who will rubber stamp the president’s many overreaches.

Loretta Lynch was confirmed in a 56-43 Senate vote. McConnell was a Yea.”

He didn’t want to be called a racist and a sexist for opposing her. So he voted to extend Obama’s reign over the Department of Justice. Those are cowardly reasons for taking the coward’s way out.

NYT Tries To Slam Senator Cruz, Fails

“Ted Cruz Is Guest of Two Gay Businessmen” was the headline of an article printed in the New York Times. The writer, trying to drive the narrative, made a big deal about Senator Cruz being invited to a talk at the home of two Gay hotel owners.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, left, a Republican presidential hopeful, with Mati Weiderpass, in a photo posted to Mr. Weiderpass’s Facebook page.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, left, a Republican presidential hopeful, with Mati Weiderpass, in a photo posted to Mr. Weiderpass’s Facebook page.

Senator Ted Cruz has positioned himself as a strong opponent of same-sex marriage, urging pastors nationwide to preach in support of marriage as an institution between a man and a woman, which he said was “ordained by God.”

But on Monday night, at a reception for him at the Manhattan apartment of two prominent gay hoteliers, the Texas senator and Republican presidential hopeful struck quite a different tone.

During the gathering, according to two people present, Mr. Cruz said he would not love his daughters any differently if one of them was gay. He did not mention his opposition to same-sex marriage, saying only that marriage is an issue that should be left to the states.

The dinner and “fireside chat” for about a dozen people with Mr. Cruz and his wife, Heidi, was at the Central Park South penthouse of Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner, longtime business partners who were once a couple and who have been pioneers in the gay hospitality industry.”

This is not news. Neither Mr. Weiderpass, Mr. Reisner, nor Sen. Cruz consider it to be. Senator Cruz reacted in his pointed, on-point manner:

The real issue, Cruz pointed out, is that his actions did not match the hateful stereotype that liberals have of socially conservative Republicans:

A conservative Republican who is willing to meet with individuals who do not agree on marriage and who loves his daughters unconditionally may not reflect the caricature of conservatives promoted by the left, but it’s hardly newsworthy.”

And even more:

It speaks volumes that the New York Times considers it newsworthy that a Republican who believes marriage is between a man and a woman would meet with people who hold a different view. The purpose of the meeting and the primary topics of conversation were national security, foreign policy, and America’s commitment to standing with Israel. On the subject of marriage, when asked, I stated directly and unambiguously what everyone in the room already knew, that I oppose gay marriage and I support traditional marriage.

One person further asked how Heidi and I would react if we found out one of our (4 and 7-year-old) daughters were gay. My reply: “We would love her with all our hearts. We love our daughters unconditionally.”

A conservative Republican who is willing to meet with individuals who do not agree on marriage and who loves his daughters unconditionally may not reflect the caricature of conservatives promoted by the left, but it’s hardly newsworthy.

I know it’s been a long time since we’ve seen it, but this is what it means to truly be a “big tent Republican” instead of a panderer. I’m happy to go anywhere to anyone to champion conservative values. We’re not always going to agree on everything, and I’m not going to change my fundamental values. But at the same time, I’m hoping to offer enough bold leadership on a broad slate of issues that many voters will decide we agree on far more than we disagree.”

This from Breitbart

That response from Senator Cruz is spot-on. The left has been stereotyping Conservatives for a long time. The NYT article was meant to strengthen the stereotype. Cruz, as is his wont, made the writer look foolish.

This is what he is so good at. He truly seeks out people who aren’t supposed to agree with him and finds points of agreement. That is rare in politics.

Update: Here comes the love from the left:

Defiance In Washington State

As you may know Washington passed a law last year that mandates background checks foe all gun transfers, even private sales. Since then there has been a lot of pushback in the community of gun owners. We reported on it here, here, and here.

Now Washington gun owners are planning an in-your-face rally in June. It’s called an Arms Expo. If you would like to attend here are the particulars:

Looks Like The Violence Is Starting In Berkeley

Protesters have formed ‘Blockades’ to prevent students from going to class or anything else.

A group of about 50 students and some community members gathered at Sather Gate on Tuesday, (April 14th,) protesting police brutality and what they called a hostile campus atmosphere for the underrepresented minority population.

Initially led by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, the protest was organized as part of a series of coordinated responses nationwide to police brutality.

More than 50 individuals blocked pedestrian traffic through the passageway under Sather Gate.

On a few occasions, passers-by’s attempts to break through the blockade were met with violent responses. UCPD spokesperson Lt. Marc DeCoulode said there were three reports of assault during the protest, while no arrests were made.”

Gaia Does Not Recognize Earth Day

According to Greek Mythology Gaia was the personification of the Earth.

As we learned yesterday Gaia does not recognize Earth Day because she allowed the volcano Calbuco to erupt in Chile on the day the moonbats were celebrating. That volcano emitted even more pollutants into the atmosphere than Air Force one did on both the trip to Florida and the return trip yesterday. That is something.

“MSNBC – the place for tax cheats”

How do they do that and get away with it? You or I couldn’t. It’s a puzzle.

Art by C.Steven Tucker

Add two more MSNBC leftist nut jobs to the list of tax cheats employed by that network. Touré Neblett and Joy-Ann Reid are the latest revealed tax cheats from MSNBC, adding to AL Sharpton and Melissa Harris-Perry. The MSNBC tag line is Lean Forward. Maybe it should be Lien Forward instead.”

National Review’s Jillian Kay Melchior reported Wednesday that, along with Al Sharpton and Melissa Harris-Perry, two more MSNBC stars are not paying their fair share of taxes. Touré Neblett, co-host of “The Cycle” owes the IRS a cool $59,000. Joy-Ann Reid, a former anchor and now a regular contributor to the “Lien” Forward network, owes New York almost $5,000 in back taxes.

As we reported last week, Melissa Harris-Perry owes the IRS $70,000. Al Sharpton’s tax bill is upwards of $3 – $4 million.

Somebody Is Lying About The Iran Nuclear Agreement

Who do you think it is?

Here is how President Obama describes it:

Obama promised there will be “unprecedented access” to the entire supply chain.

Iran, however, says the inspections are all ‘Voluntary’.

Reza Najafi, Iran’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency(IAEA) says:

Press TV: What do you think about the IAEA’s role in the implementation of the Joint Plan of Action?

Najafi: The agency as a professional organization, indeed, should do a professional work. It means — only from the technical point of view — reporting what has been done by Iran. Of course Iran under the Joint Plan of Action, agreed in Geneva, agreed to implement some voluntary measures.

These voluntary measures have been implemented, constantly, and it was reported by the agency, and confirmed and verified.”

The emphasis is mine for clarity. Who do you believe?

Now, NBC Connecticut reports that families of 11 Sandy Hook victims want “to clarify the issue for donors who might believe they are directly supporting the victims’ families.” These families worry that Sandy Hook Promise “is at times wrongly assumed to speak for all 26 victims’ families.”

The families made sure to point out that their decision to issue the statement “isn’t related to a position on the gun debate or other issues surrounding the tragedy,” rather they simply wanted to clarify that they are not affiliated with the group behind the McGraw concert.”

Texas Popeye’s Chicken Fires Employee Who Was Robbed

How to destroy a chicken franchise:

She’s a mother of three and is pregnant with her fourth. She was on shift. An armed robber held her at gunpoint and stole $400. The manager wanted her to pay back the amount that was stolen or get fired. She chose getting fired. I would too. I wouldn’t work for a jerk that did something like that.

Marissa Holcomb

A pregnant Popeyes employee in Texas says that she was fired from her job at the fast food chain after being robbed and refusing to personally pay back the money that was stolen.
Marissa Holcomb, who is five months pregnant with her fourth child, was held at up at the fried chicken chain store in Channelview on March 31.
A man armed with a handgun and his face concealed by a red beanie ran into the store and jumped the counter, forcing Holcomb to empty the registers before making off with $400.
However afterwards, Holcomb, shaken by the experience, was given an ultimatum by her managers – replace what was taken or lose her job.”
