Jill Stein Accelerates Her Scam Of Leftist Donors

"Just think about all  those millions"

“Just think about all those millions”

Stein has initiated a fund-raising for her imaginary recount efforts in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. At first she said she needed to raise a million and a half. Every few days she increased the amount she said was necessary, even though no one has been able to provide any evidence that there was even a smidgen of vote fraud.

Rush Limbaugh reported that Stein has told followers and donors that not all the money raised will be used to fund the recount. But still she wants more.

Interestingly, the Green Party candidate’s efforts to raise money for this are not supported by the actual Green Party.

“Green Party Rebels Against Jill Stein: “We Do Not Support The Recount””

In a letter penned by Green Party Senate Candidate Margaret Flowers, and signed by dozens of prominent GPUS members, the Greens have rebelled against the farcical “recount effort” conducted by Jill Stein, saying “while we support electoral reforms, including how the vote is counted, we do not support the current recount being undertaken by Jill Stein.”

The reason for this is that as the author notes, “as a candidate, Dr. Stein has the right to call for a recount. However, we urge the GPUS to distance itself from any appearance of support for either Democrats or Republicans. We are well aware of the undemocratic actions taken during the primaries by the DNC and the Clinton campaign. Greens cannot be perceived to be allied with such a party.”

Someone Please Convince Me That The Gatlinburg Fire Is Not A Terrorist Act

A week or so ago there was a fire in Israel that was set by Muslim sympathizers. They have footage from security cameras that show the fires being set. Now we have wildfires in the Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge area that are out of control.

Not surprisingly the group Al Qaeda produced back in 2012 several issues of their ‘Inspire’ magazine that shows and tells militants how to start fires.

“‘Unleash Hell’: New Al Qaeda magazine describes in detail how to start huge forest fires across the U.S.”

The ninth issue of 'Inspire' magazine, Al-Qaeda's English-language magazine which surfaced Wednesday, May 2, 2012, called for firebombing campaigns in the United States and offered hand-gun training tips

Al Qaeda has called upon its followers to unleash massive forest fires upon the United States this summer.
Published in the latest edition of the notorious terror magazine, ‘Inspire’, are graphic instructions for the creation and ignition of ’ember bombs’
Detailed in the memorably titled, ‘It is of your Freedom to Ignite a Firebomb’, the magazine encourages any would-be terrorist to target Montana, because of the rapid population growth in its wooded areas.”

Vox: “The whole Democratic Party is now a smoking pile of rubble”

I’d have to agree with the writer’s assessment.

“The down-ballot party has withered, and Obama’s policy legacy will be largely repealed.”

"My work here is done."

“My work here is done.”

To make its comeback, what’s left of the Democratic Party establishment — not just its elected officials but the leaders of its aligned institutions and its major donors — need to recognize that a strategy they believed was working as recently as Tuesday afternoon has in fact failed quite badly.”

Clinton Lawyer Seeks To Block Recount In North Carolina

He’s trying to cover something up. At the end of the video we learn that a bunch of ballots mysteriously showed up giving the Democrat the win.

Elias and Clinton

Elias and Clinton

The results were a Democrat won by a very small margin under questionable circumstances.

An attorney for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign who advocated for and joined 2016 Green Party presidential nominee Dr. Jill Stein’s recount effort is now urging North Carolina’s Republican governor to halt his own process.

Incumbent Gov. Patrick McCrory is currently trailing his Democratic challenger, Attorney General Roy Cooper III, by about 9,000 votes.

Attorney Marc Erik Elias says that is enough of a margin that should convince McCrory to concede”

It Is Time For Meaningful Changes To Gun Laws

After the attempted killings on the Ohio State University campus where the perpetrator used a car and a knife, morons on the left are calling for changes to gun laws.

dems-turned-the-osu-knife-attack-into-a-gun-control-debate-the-daily-caller

I agree. There should be changes. The proper change, as we have seen, is to outlaw gun-free zones. It was only the grace of God that placed campus police Officer Alan Horujko right at the scene of the crime.

Officer Alan Horujko saved lives

Had he been somewhere else on campus the students would have been sitting ducks, easy prey – unless some had been armed and trained. That is one change I can support.

If Sold They Can Collect Property Tax On Them

The problem is, like Detroit, They can’t give them away.

The wording on the headline makes one wonder. Are they trying to sell them for $1 each or a dollar for them all?

“4,000 vacant lots on sale for $1 to Chicago homeowners”

No, thank you

No, thank you

Chicago’s Large Lots Program, which sells vacant city-owned parcels to nearby homeowners for $1 each, is getting a lot larger.

More than 4,000 vacant lots will be put up for sale in 33 communities on the South and West sides, beginning Tuesday. Eligible buyers must own property on the same block as the vacant lot, be current on their property taxes and have no outstanding debt to the city.”

I Didn’t Know This About Castro

“Credulous Western Dupes and Castro”

The one on your right

Lastly, for all of Castro’s ranting about the exploitive nature of capitalism, it takes a truly mercenary mind to come up with the schemes his regime employed to garner hard currency — from drug-running, to assassinations to, well, vampiric behavior. The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights reported in 1966 that 166 Cuban prisoners were executed on a single day in May of that year. But before they were killed, they were forced to undergo the forced extraction of an average of seven pints of blood from their bodies. This blood was sold to Communist Vietnam at a rate of $50 per pint. Those who underwent the bloodletting suffered cerebral anemia and a state of unconsciousness and paralysis. But that didn’t stop the executions; the victims were carried on a stretcher to the killing field where they were then shot.”

“The Kremlin Didn’t Sink Hillary—Obama Did”

“Democratic panic about Russian disinformation neglects to mention that it was the White House that refused to stop it”

Old And In The Way

Old And In The Way

The Washington Pos reported this week that Kremlin-backed websites pushed “fake news” regularly portraying Hillary and the Democrats in a negative light. There’s really nothing new here for anybody who’s followed Russian propaganda for any length of time. Kremlin agitprop aimed at the West—properly termed disinformation—contains an amalgam of fact and fiction, plus lots of gray information somewhere in between which can be difficult and time-consuming to refute.

wapohillobama1

Yet again, President Obama’s unwillingness to confront Putin and his regime about anything—Syria, Ukraine, deploying nuclear missiles next to Poland—only encouraged the honey badger in the Kremlin to grow more adventurous and aggressive. By refusing to debunk noxious Russian lies, Obama encouraged Putin to tell more of them—including about Hillary Clinton. This culminated in the Russian intelligence operation which employed Wikileaks as a front to disseminate Democratic emails which had been intercepted by Moscow—as I told you months ago, and which the National Security Agency has recently admitted.”

Why Do Democrats Oppose Requiring ID To Vote?

“Poll: 13% of Illegal Aliens ADMIT They Vote”

ice-immigration-agents-300x225

Since 80 percent of noncitizens vote Democratic, according to the study, noncitizen participation could have “been large enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes [in North Carolina in 2008], and Congressional elections” such as the 2008 race in Minnesota in which Al Franken was elected to the U.S. Senate, giving “Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote” to pass Obamacare. The Old Dominion/George Mason study was sharply attacked by progressive critics, but the mounting evidence makes clear this is a real problem.”

Yes, It Is All Obama’s Doing

We noticed it at the time. Everyone he deigned to campaign for lost their seat.

Yep. She lost, too.

Yep. She lost, too.

“How Barack Obama wrecked the Democratic Party”

Obama-pot

The collapse of the Democratic Party under Barack Obama occurred in three stages, each corresponding to a national response to Obama’s policy and political overreach.

[…]

In Stage One, the Democrats were decimated in the House of Representatives (and the carnage at the state level began). From Inauguration Day in 2009 until July 2010, the Obama White House oversaw the passage of 1) the stimulus package, the most expensive piece of legislation in American history; 2) the second half of the TARP-TALF financial-bailout bill; 3) the Dodd-Frank financial regulatory reforms; and 4) the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. Not since 1933 had there been a more aggressive legislative and regulatory agenda, and Obama’s determined march not only featured $2.7 trillion in new spending but the wholesale revision of the nation’s health-care system.

It was too much, too fast, too soon, and there was a national uprising against it that came to be known as the “Tea Party.” What resulted was a midterm in 2010 that cost the Democrats 63 House seats, the largest such defeat in 72 years.

[…]

Stage Two was the decimation of the Democratic Senate majority. In 2014, Democrats watched incumbent after incumbent swept away in a Republican wave eerily similar to the House wave four years earlier. In 2010, Democrats had held on to control of the Senate with candidates who received 29 million votes in aggregate even as the House was going Republican. In 2014, Democrats received 8.2 million fewer votes—a decline of 23 percent from 2010.

[…]

Stage Three only began on Election Night, and its contours are yet to be determined: the decimation of the Obama legacy itself.

One might say that it began, oddly enough, with Obama’s 2012 victory. He got his second term, yes, but for the first time in presidential history, received fewer votes in getting reelected than he had in his first run.”

Forget Taking The Presidency. Forget Owning Both Houses Of Congress.

The bureaucrats are in control. They have become the fourth and strongest branch of government in the United States – and they are unaccountable.

“The Bureaucracy Is Now More Powerful Than Congress”

register

Before Grimand, Congress had already begun giving administrative agencies power to formulate specific rules to implement Congress’ general policy objectives. But in Grimand, the Supreme Court gave such administrative rulings the full force of law, with delegation mushrooming since.

The result has been ever-growing power for federal bureaucrats, enacted through reams of rules, imposing massively large costs on Americans. But bureaucrats need not clearly spell out their policies and their consequences to the public, much less submit themselves for voter approval. And whenever a scandal reveals some regulatory abuse or failure, politicians hide from their responsibility by blaming the bureaucrats they delegated the power to and then failed to effectively oversee.”

“Scientists Accidentally Discover Efficient Process to Turn CO2 Into Ethanol”

The process is cheap, efficient, and scalable, meaning it could soon be used to remove large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere.

The process is cheap, efficient, and scalable, meaning it could soon be used to remove large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee have discovered a chemical reaction to turn CO2 into ethanol, potentially creating a new technology to help avert climate change. Their findings were published in the journal ChemistrySelect. [Go here for a new in-depth interview about the findings with one of the lead researchers.]

The researchers were attempting to find a series of chemical reactions that could turn CO2 into a useful fuel, when they realized the first step in their process managed to do it all by itself. The reaction turns CO2 into ethanol, which could in turn be used to power generators and vehicles.”

Looks Like We Didn’t Make The List

The Washington POS has quoted this List.

There are about 200 sites on the list. The Real Revo is not one of them – yet.

An Initial Set of Sites That Reliably Echo Russian Propaganda”

tinfoil-hat

We have used a combination of manual and automated analysis, including analysis of content, timing, technical indicators, and other reporting, in order to initially identify (“red-flag”) the following as Russian propaganda outlets. We then confirmed our initial assessment by applying whatever criteria we did not originally employ during the red-flag process, and we reevaluate our findings as needed.

Please note that our criteria are behavioral. That means the characteristics of the propaganda outlets we identify are motivation-agnostic. For purposes of this definition it does not matter whether the sites listed here are being knowingly directed and paid by Russian intelligence officers, or whether they even knew they were echoing Russian propaganda at any particular point: If they meet these criteria, they are at the very least acting as bona-fide “useful idiots” of the Russian intelligence services, and are worthy of further scrutiny.”

There Is An Ugly Side To Permissive Drug Laws

Vancouver, B.C., Canada is seeing it. The CBC did this piece on the difficulties there.

Permissiveness is a hallmark of libertarian doctrine. Here we see the results. Once permissive drug acceptance is instituted what does society do? Do we write these drug users off as volunteer Darwinists?

I am heartened that the video shows a group of volunteers working to help the overdosed drug users but are they doing them any favors?

Hat tip to Kate who says this:

I’ve returned to my hometown of Vancouver for a few days and am shocked and bewildered by what I’m seeing. There are marijuana shops all over the city now, many spouting the drug as some sort of miracle medical potion. Many storefronts along Granville Mall are boarded up. Then this report appeared on CBC’s The National last night:

For years the “brilliant minds” at Insite promised us that their way would solve the drug problem in the city. They sought to destroy anyone who suggested that abstinence based treatment programs were the answer.”

CNN Continues Digging Its Own Grave

With a name like Cuomo you know he’s a radical leftist. But the others agree with him. He says the media must go into nonstop fact-checking and opposition mode against the Trump administration.

Losing is a bitch. This guy is throwing a tantrum.

You would think his bosses would be tired of the slide in viewership and have a talk with him.

CHRIS CUOMO, CNN: I like that you described his campaign as a happening. I see it all proof of a very simple notion, the media cannot yield. This administration is going to demand constant fact checking and opposition because otherwise you don’t know which way it’s going to go from day to day. That’s just the fact.”

Barack Obama Is Facing Facts For A Change

He had a plan. He and the family were going to rent a big house in Washington DC from which he could raise hell with the GOP and keep his form of Muslim Progressivism alive in the government. They even rented the DC house. As befits his image of himself it’s an 8,200 square foot mansion.

obama-dc-mansion

But he just got ‘Shellacked’ again. Because he campaigned for her the Democrat Presidential candidate lost. The Democratic National Committee lost one, and then another, of its Chairwomen. Now it’s rudderless and they are talking about doubling down on the things that made them losers.

The telling thing about this is that the Obamas have decided to retire three thousand miles away in California, even if they have to continue to pay rent on the mansion in DC.

“THE OBAMAS ARE MOVING TO CALIFORNIA”

obama-family

The Obamas are reportedly moving to California. Despite renting this family home in Washington DC from January, they are said to have purchased a new house in Rancho Mirage, a city located just outside Palm Springs in California, according to The New York Post.”

“Uniquely Talented: Only the Democrats Could Have Lost to Trump”

Excerpted from Fred Reed’s latest screed:

Fred at work

Fred at work

The privileged worked hard for Trump. Every time they described his people as uneducated white males, implicit dregs, they drove votes to Donald. And they so described the working class unceasingly.

It made him President. Good, bad, or indifferent, it is how he got in.

The privileged denigrated all whites unlike themselves. Then Hillary made her “deplorables” speech, confirming her contempt for half of America–those uneducated, shapeless, dull-witted proles in Flyover Land, obese, farting and belching, swilling Bud, watching NASCAR for god’s sake in awful trailers. And why not not sneer at them? Why did Hillary need their votes? Did not Rachel Maddow love her?

For Trump it was gold, pure gold. If he had written her speech, he could not have come up with a better line to destroy her. It was the purest product of the establishment’s hubris. She did it to herself. Sweet.

It made him President.”

Fifty Year-Old Military Music

Fifty years ago the United States was entangled in a war in Viet Nam, Southeast Asia. It was an ugly war as all wars are. Some of the worst of it was sending our men home after their tour and them having to encounter anti-war protesters. Some of the men were fighting yesterday and today are walking through the terminal in San Francisco.

There was an official effort to create military music with a positive slant. Staff Sergeant Barry Sadler recorded the Ballad of the Green Berets in 1966.

Some have said it was a reaction to Eric Burdon’s release the year before of what actually was the theme song for the Viet Nam war, “We Gotta Get Outta This Place”, always played with the volume on eleven.

Hope this doesn’t trigger some.

Hillary Clinton Has Two Million More Popular Votes Than Trump

sad-hillary

One of the reasons is California where she got 3.5 million more than he. She got all of California’s 55 Electoral College votes. She also won all of New York’s 29 electoral votes while getting 1.5 million more votes there than Trump. So, between the two states she got five million more votes than he did and got all of their electors. What that means, though, is that in the rest of the 48 states she received three million Fewer popular votes than did Trump.

“Immigration reform group asks IRS to strip tax-exempt status from civil rights watchdog”

internal revenge service02

An immigration reform group this week said it will ask the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Southern Poverty Law Center and strip the civil rights watchdog of its tax exempt status over what it described as illegal political activity undertaken prior to the Nov. 8 presidential election.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) on Tuesday said its legal affiliate expects to file a tax complaint with the IRS challenging the SPLC’s standing as a nonprofit organization.

Dan Stein, president of FAIR, said his immigration reform group plans to provide the IRS with 100 pages worth of information showing “in laborious detail how the SPLC operates as a campaign operation for one political party and nothing more.”
