That’s the number they put out that they’re planning for, a total of about 2,000 over the next one to three years, with 70 percent going to Boise and 30 percent in the Twin Falls area,” said Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim turned Christian pastor in eastern Washington who said he spoke with a conference attendee.”

A Commie Describes How To Reach Utopia

“The way to save the planet: shrink the economy”

Any comprehensive climate change program must deal with this triple challenge:

1. to decrease economic activity to limit carbon emissions.

2. to achieve a livable standard of living for everyone by increasing wages to compensate for decreasing work hours.

3. to fairly redistribute the dwindling resources of our planet to include the third world.

This monumental challenge can only be met by global agreement to replace competition with cooperation, replace profit with sharing, and to engage in physical, social, artistic and intellectual pursuits instead of rampant consumption.”

Of course this is where it all breaks down, isn’t it? Progressives somehow think that human nature can be turned on its head and ignored, that people can be forced to not be greedy or competitive. Remember, the job to have in a leftist Utopia is to be he one who decides what is ‘Fair’.

Seattle Moonbat Who Raised All His Employees Wages To $70K Is Going Broke

It sounds like he may have learned something about the law of unintended consequences. Mebbe not.

I’m working as hard as I ever worked to make it work,” he told the New York Times.

“I’m renting out my house right now to try and make ends meet myself.”

Mr Price lost two of his “most valued” employees when they became angry that lower-skilled workers were being paid a similar salary. Some customers left the company because they thought that raising the minimum wage was a political move that could also end up costing them more.

“There’s no perfect way to do this and no way to handle complex workplace issues that doesn’t have any downsides or trade-offs,” Mr Price said.”

“Huma Abedin Investigated For “Fraud” Including “Theft Of Public Money” “

Another card in Hillary Clinton’s deck of questionable and illegal dealings. How can she possibly weather another crisis indicating poor judgement and improper actions? This is just what you get when a self-centered person who has no qualifications other than having married a President of the United States tries to become President herself. She has lived a life of deceit and lies and has never learned how to make a good, reasoned, decision. She is impulsive and unaware. She does stupid things and doesn’t know they were stupid.

Hillary Clinton Has Never Learned How To Make A Good Decision

The State Department concluded this year that Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s closest aides had committed violations of rules governing vacation and sick leave during her tenure as an official in the department. Abedin, as Shoebat has extensively documented her links and ties to Wahhabists including the Muslim Brotherhood.

The finding — which Abedin has formally contested — emerged publicly Friday after Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) sent letters to Secretary of State John F. Kerry and others seeking more information about an investigation into possible “criminal” conduct by Abedin concerning her pay.”

San Francisco’s Leaders Are Crazy

Rather than arrest – or even detain – people who pee in the street, the people who run the city have decided to let them do it. It’s become a sanctuary for illegal alien felons, people who want to be naked in public, and those who don’t want to bother to find a rest room.

At first I thought the headline below referred to a type of paint that would cover or destroy the odor of urine. Unfortunately, no.

public pee

“San Francisco combats the stench of urine with pee-repellant paint”

The city’s Public Works agency is testing a pee-repellant paint on walls in areas that have been saturated with urine. Anyone urinating on the specially treated walls will get the spray splashed back onto them.

San Francisco’s director of public works, Mohammed Nuru – whose Twitter handle is @MrCleanSF – got the idea when he read on social media about the use of the paint in Hamburg, Germany’s nightclub district to stop beer drinkers from relieving themselves in the street.”

How is this handled in other areas? How is it that we don’t see it everywhere?

You can read more about it here

In a related story, in the California Political Review, there is a story titled, “What’s the Matter With San Francisco?”.

The writer describes a lot of what is wrong with the city but doesn’t bemoan any of them. He says he went there because of the progressive values that he still believes in.

It’s plain that a progressive is unable to propose an answer to the question that is the title of his piece. He just seems to like to listen to himself.

LAPD Goes Nuts

“LAPD finds 1,200 guns, two tons of ammo in dead man’s Pacific Palisades home”

Eek. As Stranger points out the man was either a moderate-sized collector or a supplier to the underworld.

This sounds like sloppy reporting. “More than 1,200 guns” is exactly how many?

Eek, again.

More than 1,200 guns were strewn about the Palisades Drive house and garage, police said. The weapons ranged from high-end pistols to shotguns and rifles. Many had never been fired. Some were still wrapped in their boxes, with the price tags still attached.

It was a “staggering number of guns,” said LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith. Police also found roughly two tons of ammunition.

“Our truck couldn’t carry it all,” Smith said. “We had to go back and make another trip.”

“Kerry says Iran vow to defy U.S. is ‘very disturbing'”

Johnny, boy, you are the only person in the world who believed that Iran would comply with any agreement. It must require a complete rejection of reality to be you. Throughout the so-called ‘Negotiations’ you were played by your Iranian counterpart, the Iranian government continued to screech, “Death to America, death to Israel”. They told the world that you gave them everything they wanted and asked for nothing in return. They, and the rest of the world, are laughing at you.

Go back in time when you and your puckered face sat alongside Hanoi Jane Fonda and basked in the glow of her hatred. You have a sad, sorry history. This year you have made it both sadder and sorrier.

kerry fonda

DUBAI (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Saturday vowing to defy American policies in the region despite a deal with world powers over Tehran’s nuclear program was “very disturbing”.

“I don’t know how to interpret it at this point in time, except to take it at face value, that that’s his policy,” he said in the interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television, parts of which the network quoted on Tuesday.”

Creepy Hillary Clinton Thought This Was A Good Idea

Be warned. This is a video of a GIF. It loops over and over. I don’t know why it’s so long.

This is what the Clinton Campaign has to resort to when she won’t do interviews and she won’t let her supporters do them either. Actually, she has told her supporters to not even talk to reporters. Even this MSNBC panel finds it Hilarious.

She looks foolish every time we get a glimpse of her.

I half-way expected her to take part in the ‘World Naked Bike Ride‘. But, then, they probably weren’t naked biking in Iowa.

If we were to start shooting Republicans, we would likely not harm a single friend of animals or the environment. Of course, such a course of action would be inadvisable. It would land us in prison and galvanize public opinion against the movement.

But you get the point. Republicans and conservatives are the enemy. They are expendable. The will be targets in the Revolution when it comes.”

Every year the Fourth of July is marked by ringing affirmations of American exceptionalism. We are a special nation, uniquely founded on high ideals like freedom and equality. In practice, however, much of what sets the United States apart from other countries today is actually Southern exceptionalism. The United States would be much less exceptional in general, and in particular more like other English-speaking democracies such as Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand were it not for the effects on U.S. politics and culture of the American South.

I don’t mean this in a good way. A lot of the traits that make the United States exceptional these days are undesirable, like higher violence and less social mobility. Many of these differences can be attributed largely to the South.”

Arm The Troops

Four military personnel were killed by a single jihadi in Chattanooga. How was this possible? The dead were United States Marines. They are some of the best and toughest fighters in the world. How was one young man able to kill four marines and injure one other person – a police officer – without repercussion?

This is how:

chattanoogagunfreezone

The victims were intentionally disarmed by their leaders.

What kind of sense does that make? Why should the most well trained military people we have be made victims by taking away their means of defense? It’s not just stupid, it’s criminal.

This is not the first time a jihadi has chosen a military installation for his carnage. No, it has been going on pretty regularly. Fort Hood, in Killeen, Texas has been hit twice. There are others.

Why do these killers flock to military bases? For the same reason the go to schools. No one is armed. No one can resist.

Our military people are trusted with rifles, pistols, grenades, tanks, artillery, attack aircraft, and a lot more, just not on base. They need small arms to protect themselves and others. Every military person who has been properly trained to safely use small arms should be required to carry an arm. That will stop this.

Obama’s HUD Will Fundamentally Transform Your Neighborhood

You need to know about HUD’s new ‘Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing’ rule.

hud logo

At the direction of President Obama the Department of Housing and Urban Development has decided that neighborhoods need to become more diversified. If you live in a neighborhood with a higher than normal income level they will put in some low-income housing to bring it down. If you have too many white people there more minorities will be brought in.

HUD has taken planning and zoning away from local control.

From the Human Rights Campaign blog, who are ‘Working for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equal Rights':

The rule implements a section of the FHA, which directed jurisdictions accepting federal funds to take significant actions to promote equality and “affirmatively further fair housing”. The AFFH provisions are a critical step towards ensuring that everyone has access to homes in communities that provide opportunities and resources for themselves and their families – including those who are LGBT. The new HUD rule requires communities to conduct an “Assessment of Fair Housing” to scrutinize their current patterns of integration and segregation, evaluate areas of poverty, and identify disparities in equal access and disproportionate housing. Once that assessment is complete the community must set goals to improve their housing patterns.”

From America Thinker:

The progressive utopian assumption must be that people become smarter or richer based on where they live. Simply put, rather than respect the theory of social evolution, liberals continue to blame zip codes for the economic demise of those they imagine would otherwise be the fittest. Thus, to solve shared problems that have nothing to do with geography, the Obama transformation team is moving forward with the plan to usher low-income people into the midst of middle- and higher-income classes.”

Zero Hedge has an article on the new rule here.

Fox News has this to say:

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP convention in July.

“Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard a child or her parents work, the life chances of that child, even her lifespan, is determined by the zip code she grows up in. This is simply wrong,” he said.

Data from this discrimination database would be used with zoning laws, housing finance policy, infrastructure planning and transportation to alleviate alleged discrimination and segregation.”

Jews React To US/Iran Accord

The Obama administration has abandoned Israel in signing the deal that allows Iran to have a nuclear weapon.

shapiro on iran deal

Bill Kristol, writing in the Weekly Standard, says:

We have a deal. It’s a deal worse than even we imagined possible. It’s a deal that gives the Iranian regime $140b in return for … effectively nothing: no dismantlement of Iran’s nuclear program, no anytime/anywhere inspections, no curbs on Iran’s ballistic missile program, no maintenance of the arms embargo, no halt to Iran’s sponsorship of terror.”

“Want to Know How to Stop a Centralized Bureaucracy? Math.”

Dream on.

This was posted by Jeff Carter at Points and Figures.

The only thing that will upend the carefully crafted apple cart the political bosses have set up is math. The math that Mark talks about in the Soundcloud clip I posted is rapidly becoming a reality in states like Illinois. The answer from Democratic politicians has been to look for ways to increase taxes and fees to keep the shell game going. None of them have cut the size and scope of government. None of them have deregulated anything to allow more choice and freedom for people. Interestingly, the United States federal budget allocates 62% of all spending to entitlements, and the number will rise dramatically with Obamacare. It’s totally unsustainable but the crony capitalists in Washington don’t care about it. They’ll be fine.”

Oh, now I get it. He means that the math will eventually catch up with the spenders and bring down the system. He doesn’t mean we could use a hard thing like math to prevent the collapse. At first I thought we could convince the leftists.

Nope, never.

Here is what you get when you try something as foolish as that. Gina McCarthy, head of the EPA, was testifying before the Congress.

gina-mccarthy-epa-reuters-e1387387390626

Congressman Lamar Smith wanted to know how EPA justified their expansive new regulations.

Smith reiterated that in his secret science reform act, personal information would be redacted but the underlying studies and data that are being used to justify costly regulations would be made public so that other scientists and the American people can review it. This is especially important as the EPA has a 60-day comment period after a new proposal is issued, but the science behind the new regulations is not included. Smith’s new bill would rectify that issue.

McCarthy also said she “doesn’t actually need the raw data in order to develop science. That’s not how it’s done.

I guess that explains it. In the Obama administration regulations are not based on scientific data. They are based, I guess, on political science. And Obama’s politics are to do whatever he can to further weaken and eventually destroy out country.

McCarthy understands that. Smith apparently does not.

Rasmussen: “Voters Want to Punish Sanctuary Cities”

san fran

The report attributes the opinion to the killing in San Francisco, a ‘Snctuary City’ by an illegal alien who went there because the city would protect him from the feds who said they wanted to deport him again. I believe that the number of Americans who disagree with the notion of sanctuary cities has not changed. Most of us have believed the idea to be a stupid and dangerous one since it was first proposed. Rasmussen, however, never asked the question before. Now that they have they find the facts and want to know what’s behind the phenomenon.

Following the murder of a young woman in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant from Mexico, voters want to get tough on so-called “sanctuary cities” that refuse to enforce immigration laws.

Sixty-two percent (62%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the U.S. Justice Department should take legal action against cities that provide sanctuary for illegal immigrants. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 26% oppose Justice Department action against sanctuary cities. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided.

Dreams Of A Totalitarian Librarian In Bakersfield

“Here’s what a well-regulated militia actually looks like”

B.J. Mitchell of Tehachapi

B.J. Mitchell of Tehachapi

This was printed in The Bakersfield Californian. The essay is attribued to B.J. Mitchell of Tehachapi.

Therefore it prompt the question: What is the definition of a well regulated militia in today’s terms? And how can we build a gun control program around it?

Here is one reasonable and defensible answer: Today’s components of a well regulated militia are (1) our police departments, (2) our National Guard, and (3) our military reserves. Since the entire U.S. population cannot — cannot — become a well regulated militia, accepting this definition allows us to construct a rational program that could look something like this:

1. First of all, assault weapons will be banned except for the National Guard. People who currently own assault weapons will be required to sell them to the National Guard which will distribute them to legitimate military units where they will be used for defense of the country.

2. Anyone wishing to buy a handgun will buy it from a police department. The police department will be allowed to make a profit on the guns they sell in order to pay for the systems’ gun owners’ database. These individual police department databases will be collected into a full national gun owners’ database and maintained by the Department of Homeland Security. Following a background check, the police department will issue the applicant a gun permit.

3. The full national gun owners’ database will be developed as follows: In addition to the police department databases, the courts will submit the names of all convicted criminals, the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service will submit names of all residents of the U.S. who are not citizens, Homeland Security will submit the names of terrorists and citizens who threaten the violent overthrow of the U.S. Government, therapists will submit the names of people who have potentially dangerous mental illnesses.

4. The names of the people in these categories will have asterisks by their names indicating that they are not eligible to own a gun. This symbol will not identify which of these groups they belong to, only that they are not eligible to buy a gun. The national database can be accessed by all legitimate peace officers.

5. Gun shops will sell only such guns as hunting rifles and shotguns, guns that normally shoot a few bullets at a time. This is a relatively simple program that will need further definition but could serve as the structural base for a gun program that hurts no one. Except for the assault weapons’ availability only to the National Guard, everyone will have access to their weapon of choice.”

Meet The San Francisco Sheriff Who Killed Kathryn Steinle

Kathryn Steinle before she was murdered

Kathryn Steinle before she was murdered

This is Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi:

ross mirkarimi1

He is the man who released the illegal alien who killed Steinle. He has a history in the city by the bay.

Ross Mirkarimi (born August 4, 1961) is the sheriff of San Francisco,[1] California. Prior to being sheriff, he served on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, representing District 5 from 2005 to 2011.

Mirkarimi was elected sheriff in November 2011. He served from January to March 2012, at which time he was charged with domestic violence battery, child endangerment, and dissuading a witness in connection with a December 31, 2011 New Year’s Eve altercation with his wife, and Mayor Ed Lee suspended him from office pending an ethics investigation.[2] Mirkarimi pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor false imprisonment.[3] According to the San Francisco city charter, removing a public official for misconduct requires the vote of nine of eleven supervisors; only seven supervisors voted to remove Mirkarimi from his office and he was reinstated in October 2012.[4][5]

Mirkarimi is a co-founder of the Green Party of California. However, in March 2010, he became a Democrat.[6]

As a supervisor, Mirkarimi received national attention in 2007 when he introduced the first legislation prohibiting the use of non-biodegradable plastic bags by large supermarkets and drugstores, making San Francisco the first city to do so.[7] ‘

mirkarimi mugshot

There is a lot more about this ‘Altercation’ he had with his wife at Huffington Post. He was removed from his office as Sheriff because of the domestic violence his wife charged him with.

San Francisco prosecutors went public Friday with photos of Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi's wife displaying a large arm bruise that her husband allegedly inflicted on her during a fight New Year's Eve.

San Francisco prosecutors went public Friday with photos of Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s wife displaying a large arm bruise that her husband allegedly inflicted on her during a fight New Year’s Eve.

From SFGate.

He was reinstated to the Sheriff position in 2012.

Embattled San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi is expected to take control of his department next week, even as the district attorney, the mayor and a city official who voted not to remove him from office question his ability to oversee the agency.

Though he avoided losing his job, Mirkarimi is on probation for a criminal conviction in a domestic violence case stemming from a New Year’s Eve dispute with his actress wife.

“I have grave concerns about Ross Mirkarimi’s ability to manage the Sheriff’s Department,” District Attorney George Gascon said Wednesday.”

So it looks like what we have is a far-left Progressive politician in a far-left Progressive city who is a part of the Democrat machine there. Because of that he becomes the county’s chief police officer. He is prone to making poor choices and violence against women. Because he is politically connected he then gets his job back after a conviction for domestic violence.

Domestic violence is a legal charge that gets regular citizens on the list of people who may not own guns. Not Mirkarimi. He gets to be Sheriff again.

In spite of a federal law that dictated that he turn pier shooter Sanchez over to federal authorities for deportation Mirkarimi defied the order.

As a result the illegal alien stole a gun and killed a random, beautiful young woman.

Mirkarimi allowed it to happen.

It’s always awkward to defend your enemies.

But that’s the position U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration has found itself in with Iran as it pushes for an historic accord that would end a 12-year nuclear standoff.

Tehran and Washington, which have called each other the “Great Satan” and a member of the “Axis of Evil” during 36 years of hostility, are more used to exchanging insults than defending each other. The two foes cut diplomatic ties after Iranian revolutionaries seized 52 hostages in Tehran’s U.S. embassy during the 1979 Islamic Revolution.”

The City Of San Francisco Is Culpable In Her Death

Lopez-Sanchez has several felony convictions and was, therefore, not legally allowed to carry a gun. But, as has been noted on these pages before, laws restricting gun ownership only restrict the law-abiding. Adding more restrictions to gun ownership will not deter criminals.

The city of San Francisco released this man from custody and, because they call themselves a ‘Sactuary City’, refused to turn him over to federal authorities. Because of these actions, the city and its leaders bear some responsibility for the murder of this young woman.

 Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez

Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez

Kate Steinle was walking on a busy pier in San Francisco with her father when there was a single popping sound in the air.

She fell to the ground, struck by a bullet, the victim of what police say appears to be a random killing.

The man accused of firing the deadly shot — 45-year-old Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez — is an undocumented immigrant, a repeat felon who has been deported five times to Mexico, according to immigration officials.

It would have been six, a federal law enforcement source told CNN, except authorities in San Francisco wanted him on a drug-related warrant.

So U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which had Lopez-Sanchez in its custody in March after his release from federal prison, turned him over to San Francisco deputies. ICE said they requested an immigration detainer, asking that the agency be notified before Lopez-Sanchez was released.

But San Francisco is a city that doesn’t honor such requests and the sheriff’s department released him. Freya Horne, chief legal counsel to the San Francisco County Sheriff, told CNN that he was let go because there was no legal cause to detain the suspect.”

Racist J*p Calls Justice Clarence Thomas ‘A Clown In Blackface’

George Takei made some money by playing Sulu, the navigator who got the spaceship lost in space. Now he thinks he has opinions that people want to hear.

Justice Thomas

Justice Thomas

Takei has twisted the words of Justice Thomas. Here is what he actually wrote:

Human dignity has long been understood in this country to be innate. When the Framers proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” they referred to a vision of mankind in which all humans are created in the image of God and therefore of inherent worth. That vision is the foundation upon which this Nation was built.

The corollary of that principle is that human dignity cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. And those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the government denies them those benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away.”

“Feds want $1M for staff compound at Burning Man”

Bureau of Land Management (BLM) officials wants Burning Man organizers to spend $1 million on a VIP compound at this year’s festival.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reported Friday that federal officials have asked the festival to set up the compound — called the “Blue Pit” — complete with washers and dryers, hot water, air conditioning and couches for some of the 150 staffers who work the event each year.

Burning Man organizers are pushing back. A spokesman told the Gazette-Journal that “we’re getting close to the event, but we feel that there are more common-sense and cost-effective solutions” to providing accommodations for staffers.”
