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.

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.

David Morgan, Sheriff of Escambia County, Florida, is trying to speak to the dramatic rise in violence in the black community. He correctly points out some horrific crimes and tells us that the black community needs to return to teaching responsibility and values. He speaks of ‘Thug Culture’ and calls it wrong.

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:

A Wisconsin District Attorney is being accused of conducting partisan political raids on the homes of conservative advocates. Democrat DA John Chisholm orchestrated “John Doe” raids on the homes of multiple families who had donated to conservative groups.”

And:

At Chisholm’s request, Wisconsin Circuit Judge Barbara Kluka granted prosecutors outrageously sweeping subpoena powers that led them to conduct dozens of raids on conservative organizations in Wisconsin.”

“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.

The hat looks more like crap in this pic.

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.”

“VA Sends Veterans’ Medical Info To FBI To Get Their Guns Taken Away”

The document, dated Feb. 27, 2012, makes clear the VA must send health information to the FBI for its gun background-check database.”

Wisconsin Lawmen Invade Home Of Conservative Family

They are calling it a home invasion by police. It has been covered up. The compliant media refuses to report it. The police did what they could to intimidate the homeowners into silence.

How does one deal with crap like this?

wisconsin home invasion

Cindy Archer, one of the lead architects of Wisconsin’s Act 10 — also called the “Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill,” it limited public-employee benefits and altered collective-bargaining rules for public-employee unions — was jolted awake by yelling, loud pounding at the door, and her dogs’ frantic barking. The entire house — the windows and walls — was shaking.

She looked outside to see up to a dozen police officers, yelling to open the door.

They were carrying a battering ram. She wasn’t dressed, but she started to run toward the door, her body in full view of the police. Some yelled at her to grab some clothes, others yelled for her to open the door.”

What did they want? They wanted computers and cell phones.

I begged and begged, ‘Please don’t shoot my dogs, please don’t shoot my dogs, just don’t shoot my dogs.’ I couldn’t get them to stop barking, and I couldn’t get them outside quick enough. I saw a gun and barking dogs. I was scared and knew this was a bad mix.”

And:

The entire family was herded into one room, and there they watched as the police carried off their personal possessions, including items that had nothing to do with the subject of the search warrant — even her daughter’s computer.

And, yes, there were the warnings. Don’t call your lawyer. Don’t talk to anyone about this. Don’t tell your friends. The kids watched — alarmed — as the school bus drove by, with the students inside watching the spectacle of uniformed police surrounding the house, carrying out the family’s belongings. Yet they were told they couldn’t tell anyone at school.

They, too, had to remain silent.”

Next Step: Register Them As Democrat Voters

Chimps are legal persons according to the law but fetuses are not. Bizarro.

“U.S. Court Recognizes Chimpanzees As “Legal Persons” For First Time”

Not the same chimps

Not the same chimps

In a historic moment for animal rights, two chimpanzees, Hercules and Leo, were recognized by a New York court as legal persons Monday.

Hercules and Leo, who are currently used for biomedical experiments at Stony Brook University on Long Island, were granted habeas corpus by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jaffe.

Habeas corpus is a legal petition that detainees use to seek relief from unlawful imprisonment, and by granting habeas corpus to chimps, Jaffe endorsed the idea that they deserve the rights of a human being.”

NYT: “Has the N.R.A. Won?”

This is from The uniquely named Charles Blow who writes an opinion page for the New York Times.

Charles Blow

Charles Blow

Blow asks if the National Rifle Association has won. The real question is not that. It’s whether the Constitution and the American people are winning. By singling out the NRA he is continuing to try to demonize the Association. The NRA has been moving strongly to defend the rights of Americans but they are hardly the only entity doing so.

nra logo

Read how Blow writes about the NRA:

It was after the Newtown shooting that President Obama established a task force, led by Vice President Joseph Biden Jr., to develop a proposal to reduce gun violence, which the president said he intended to “push without delay.”

Those proposals, including expanded background checks (which were characterized as “misguided” by the N.R.A.’s Chris Cox) and a ban on some semiautomatic weapons, were roundly defeated in the Senate, although polls showed about 90 percent public approval for expanded background checks.”

And Blow’s conclusion:

One may begrudge and bemoan the fact, but it is hard to deny it: the N.R.A. appears to be winning this round.”

I would say, and the NRA as well would say, that the winner is not the Association. It is the American people and the Constitution. Why is that so hard for Blow to see?

Mrs. Clinton, Do You Think Lying Is OK?

This question is one I’d like to see put before Hillary Clinton and every other person vying for public office.

swearing in

I don’t mean after the election. I mean during the campaign. Lying has become common among our leaders. Mrs. Clinton lied about sniper fire. Her husband lied about not having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky. Our President repeatedly lied when he told us we could keep our doctors and our health plans. And other things.

Every candidate should be put on the spot and required to take a position on truthfulness. Then, if later caught in a lie, their statement should be thrown back at them.

I see no reason why there should not be a movement to reinstate truth in political discourse.

Tim McGraw Defends His Decision To Play Benefit For Anti-Gun Group

McGraw doesn’t need to defend his decision. He made it and now he owns it. Gun owners across the country have reacted to his choice in their own ways.

He is not going to change anyone’s mind. He has two choices now: Retirement or a long, slow slide into irrelevance. He does not understand that Progressives will not embrace country music, buy his CD’s, or tickets to his concerts.

It’s interesting reading the comments section of the linked article.

He has made his bed. It is interesting that Billy Currington bailed as soon as the uproar started.

Tim McGraw

Tim McGraw defended his decision to headline a a concert to benefit a Sandy Hook group after gun advocate groups called the event a “gun control fundraiser.”

“Let me be clear regarding the concert for Sandy Hook given much of the erroneous reporting thus far,” McGraw told FOX411 in a statement. “As a gun owner, I support gun ownership. I also believe that with gun ownership comes the responsibility of education and safety – most certainly when it relates to what we value most, our children. I can’t imagine anyone who disagrees with that.”

Fellow country singer Billy Currington withdrew from the Connecticut show because he’s “never been one to take on controversial issues.”

They say the teacher struck her daughter…

So the mother came to school, confronted the teacher, they got into an argument, and then the mother choked out the teacher. Seems pretty severe. It doesn’t look like the mother was arrested.

“Student’s MOTHER leaves teacher unconscious in school hall after ‘kicking and strangling’ her to the ground”

A middle school teacher is recovering in hospital in New York after being viciously assaulted by one of her student’s mothers and the woman’s 14-year-old niece.
The incident occurred Wednesday afternoon at Alverta B. Gray Schultz Middle School in Hempstead.
Police say the parent, Annika McKenzie, 34, walked into the building without being cleared by security and waited in the hallway for her daughter’s math teacher, Catherine Engelhardt.
McKenzie believed Engelhardt had ‘put her hands’ on her 12-year-old daughter earlier in the day, according to ABC 7.

Interesting Image:

Click to enlarge:

history-of-the-american-police-officer-poster-large

These are for sale at the website for the Home School Legal Defense Association. They offer a series of six ‘History of…” posters. It’s a fundraiser.

But it’s interesting how the police uniform has changed during the history of our country. Robert Farago at The Truth About Guns calls it an incendiary image and asks,

To be fair to the presentation of the artist, this is something done by Police for Police. It will mean something completely different to those on the other side of the Thin Blue Line. But it does raise some questions.

Like if the overall crime rate is going down, why is the militarization of the Police going up?”

He may be right. There may be more than one way to view this. Trouble is, many Americans see the SWAT gear as a threat. Then, too, all cops don’t wear military garb. Most still sport a more conventional uniform. Maybe whomever made this poster got it wrong.

“California continuing its quest to brand all men as rapists”

If they pass this law every man in the state will either be subject to legal action or will leave.

California has been on the leading edge of leftist hate for a long time. Nothing is sacred there. And it looks like the feel-good leftists have chosen mass suicide to save the little fishes.

california breaking off

Last year California passed a law that defined nearly all sex on college campuses as rape unless proven otherwise. Now, in addition to making it easier to label someone a rapist for just about every sexual encounter, state legislators want to go further to ensure that accused students’ lives are severely disrupted — if not ruined — by introducing mandatory minimums for their punishment.

The mandatory minimum would be a suspension of two years for students found responsible for sexual assault. But bear in mind that the burden of proof already lies with the accused, thanks to California’s “yes means yes” law. Accusers do not have to provide any proof that that they failed to give consent or were unable to consent due to incapacitation, and now a guilty finding would carry a minimum punishment under this new proposal.

First they made it easier to brand a student a rapist, and now they want to make it easier to ruin that student’s life.”

Americans Left In Yemen Rescued By …. Russians

Yemen got too scary for American diplomats so they were pulled out a couple of weeks ago. Our State Department made a big deal about getting US diplomats out. Trouble is there were still some US citizens left there. The State Dept. did not try to get them out.

A reporter asked State Department spokesgirl Marie Harf, “How are they supposed to get out, Swim?” she didn’t respond. She just gave him an evil eye.

She, and the rest of the department didn’t have a plan.

Now it is reported that the Russian Navy has rescued 300 people from Yemen including 18 Americans.

The Russian Navy vessel Priazovye has helped to evacuate 308 people from war-torn Yemen. The Russian Defense Ministry stated citizens from 19 countries had been rescued, including Russian, Ukrainian, US and Yemini nationals.

The Russian warship departed the southern Yemeni port of Aden on Sunday night and is due to arrive in Djibouti, on the east coast of Africa on Monday morning.

“Among those evacuated from the zone of hostilities in the Aden area, were citizens of 19 countries, including 45 Russian nationals,” Igor Konashenkov, a Defense Ministry spokesman said on Sunday.

There were also a number of foreign citizens aboard the Priazovye, including 18 Americans, 14 Ukrainians, nine Belorusians, five UK citizens, as well as 159 Yemeni nationals.”

Were we just going to leave those people there? Why isn’t this more well reported? Those people were being sacrificed because of the incompetence and the lack of concern of the Obama administration. That is evil
