Bernie Sanders Supporters Are Getting Desperate

Yep. Greens Say Everything Is Bad.

It kills me. Really. Some greens like Willie Nelson have been touting biodiesel as the Earth-friendly way to power your tour bus. Now some Euroweenie has made a ten minute name for himself by writing an article that says the stuff is worse than regular diesel.

“Biodiesel worse for the environment than fossil fuels, warn green campaigners”

Soy biodiesel at a US service station.

Soy biodiesel at a US service station.

Instead of reducing them, using biodiesel in transport will increase polluting emissions by 4%, the same as putting an extra 12 million cars on the road in 2020, green campaigners have said.

Biodiesel is touted as one way to decarbonise the EU’s transport sector. But, according to NGO Transport and Environment (T&E), using it is actually worse for the environment than traditional fossil fuels.”

BBC: “Rise in CO2 has ‘greened Planet Earth'”… And That’s Bad

The writer starts with an incorrect premise:

“Carbon dioxide emissions from industrial society have driven a huge growth in trees and other plants.”

greened the earth

A new study says that if the extra green leaves prompted by rising CO2 levels were laid in a carpet, it would cover twice the continental USA.

Climate sceptics argue the findings show that the extra CO2 is actually benefiting the planet.

But the researchers say the fertilisation effect diminishes over time.

They warn the positives of CO2 are likely to be outweighed by the negatives.”

Noonan: “That Moment When 2016 Hits You”

Peggy Noonan writes a regular column for the Wall Street Journal. A lot of people think because she writes there she is a conservative. She’s not. She’s an emotional, self-important twit who was captivated by Barack Obama during the 2008 election.

In this essay she reveals that she just noticed that the 2016 election is important for the country.

noonan

“‘I felt a wave of sadness,’ said one friend. This year’s politics have that effect on a lot of Americans.”

I looked up and saw Hillary Clinton yelling on TV and switched channels. Breaking news, said the crawl. A caravan of Trump supporters driving to an outdoor rally in Fountain Hills, Ariz., had been blocked by demonstrators. The helicopter shot showed a highway backed up for miles. No one seemed to be in charge, as is often the case in America. It was like an unmovable force against an unmovable object.

I watched dumbly, tiredly. Then for no reason—this is true, it just doesn’t sound it—I thought of an old Paul Simon song that had been crossing my mind, “The Boy in the Bubble.” I muted the TV, found the song on YouTube, and listened as I stared at the soundless mile of cars and the soundless demonstrators. As the lyrics came—“The way we look to a distant constellation / That’s dying in a corner of the sky / . . . Don’t cry baby / Don’t cry”—my eyes filled with tears. And a sob welled up and I literally put my hands to my face and sobbed, silently, for I suppose a minute.

Because my country is in trouble.

Because I felt anguish at all the estrangements.

Because some things that shouldn’t have changed have changed.

Because too much is being lost. Because the great choice in a nation of 320 million may come down to Crazy Man versus Criminal.”

Madam, you are no fighter. You are a crier and an enabler. You have no interest in saving the country. You will grieve momentarily and then praise yourself publicly for doing the right thing. You are a coward. It is people like you who have allowed this decline. You appropriated the bully pulpit that is your weekly column and showed Americans… nothing. You adopted no positions and told us that was how we should be.

Shame on you for helping weaken the will of good people.

Sam Cooke Wrote The Anthem For Today’s Education System

Patrick J. Deneen teaches political theory at the University of Notre Dame.

“Res Idiotica”

My students are know-nothings. They are exceedingly nice, pleasant, trustworthy, mostly honest, well-intentioned, and utterly decent. But their minds are largely empty, devoid of any substantial knowledge that might be the fruits of an education in an inheritance and a gift of a previous generation. They are the culmination of western civilization, a civilization that has forgotten it origins and aims, and as a result, has achieved near-perfect indifference about itself.

[…]

But ask them some basic questions about the civilization they will be inheriting, and be prepared for averted eyes and somewhat panicked looks. Who fought in the Peloponnesian war? What was at stake at the Battle of Salamis? Who taught Plato, and whom did Plato teach? How did Socrates die? Raise your hand if you have read both the Iliad and the Odyssey. The Canterbury Tales? Paradise Lost? The Inferno?

[…]

Our students’ ignorance is not a failing of the educational system – it is its crowning achievement. Efforts by several generations of philosophers and reformers and public policy experts whom our students (and most of us) know nothing about have combined to produce a generation of know-nothings.”

“It Depends On What The Definition Of ‘Is’ Is”

That is a real quote from former President Bill Clinton. He was on the hot seat and was parsing his language by throwing out an outrageous comment to distract his questioners.

Now the Obama administration is trying the same deflection tactic.

“Obama Administration Tells Supreme Court ‘Lawfully’ Doesn’t Mean ‘Legally'”

scotus-immigration

Lawfully” does not mean “legally.”

Welcome to what Solicitor General Donald Verrilli told the Supreme Court on Monday is the “immigration world.” Or, more accurately, welcome to the new world President Barack Obama — through his solicitor — is asking the Supreme Court to join him in declaring.

It is a world that contradicts the law of noncontradiction. It is a place where something can be and not be at the same time. It is a place of illogic — and lawlessness.”

Obama and his flunkies are still, determinedly, trying to stop the use of the word ‘Illegal’ to describe undocumented aliens. From ansympathetic distance their argument looks like the words of fools. When you get closer the description becomes even more correct.

Islamic State Executes 250 Women For Refusing To Become Sex Slaves

This is an obvious effort to frighten other captured women and girls, to convince them that they must become sex dolls for the sadistic fighters of the Islamic State.

We know how IS slaughters its captured, throws people accused of homosexuality from tall buildings, stones women accused of being raped, and beheads people who may be Islamic but are not pure enough. These girls know it as well. This group of them has chosen quick death over mutilation and snuff sex from blood thirsty heathens. They will not be the last to make that choice.

When faced with two bad choices choose the least bad. It’s human nature.

Not surprisingly, the National Organization for Women, NOW, has no mention of this atrocity at its site.

“The victims had all been told to accept ‘temporary marriages’ to fighters”

Two young Yazidi women

Two young Yazidi women

At least 250 girls have been executed by the Islamic State (IS) in Mosul, because the young women refused to become sex slaves.

ABNA news agency reported that a Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official from Mosul, Said Mamuzini, said that life is too hard for the women who live in the IS controlled Iraqi city. “At least 250 girls have so far been executed by IS for refusing to accept the practice of sexual jihad, and sometimes the families of the girls were also executed for rejecting to submit to IS’s request” he said.”

Stenhouse, a spokesman for the American Federation of StateChancellor, also said “There’s a very clear need for those front-line services. But the question is whether there really is a need to hemorrhage resources on executives.”

Sanders Supporters Want Free Stuff But They Don’t Want To Pay For It

Who could be surprised by this? Most of these supporters are young skulls full of mush who have had all their expenses paid by someone else. Bernie promises ‘Free’ and by gum it better be free.

Nearly 7 million Americans have already cast a primary ballot for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary, hoping, in part, that the self-professed socialist would make their lives easier with programs like near-universal healthcare and free college for all students.

The only catch is that they want someone else to foot the bill for everything.

Vox recently conducted a study ,with the help of the polling firm Morning Consult, to determine how much more supporters of the Vermont Senator would be willing to pay in taxes in order to enact his healthcare and college proposals.”

Why Are American Parents Not Enraged?

The Obama administration is pushing the country into a depth of depravity that that we have never seen before. They are calling you and me evil and civil rights violators if we oppose our little girls being exposed to sexual predators. A few years ago, as RD Walker has reminded us, anyone who said it might come to this was laughed at and called a crank. “It could never come to that”, they said.

But here it is. Individual states are passing laws to try to help protect their children. Wealthy, left-wing, bandwagon jumpers like Bruce Springsteen are opposing safe kids. He’s not alone. It is a manifestation of evil that is coming directly from the oval Office.

Why are American parents not incensed? We should be enraged that there could even be a possibility that this idiocy could occur. Have we been so beaten down, so frightened of being called a nasty name, that we will no longer act to protect the ones we love the most? It took far less than this to get millions to attend Tea Party rallies in far-away places like Washington DC.

One could say that this should start in America’s churches. Okay, but it should start somewhere. Church pews are filled with families. Dads and moms care for their kids. We should show it. We should rise up and demand that they not be subject to the danger that this politically correct madness will bring.

“Obama Administration Says Men Entering Girl’s Locker Rooms Is A Civil Right”

josh earnest

State’s like Tennessee and to a certain extent North Carolina and Mississippi have a long history — even over the last couple of generations — of working through questions of civil rights. President Obama has talked on a number of occasions about the important progress that our country has made with regard to civil rights,” Earnest said. “This is a good illustration that the fight for civil rights is not over.”

The legendary musician announced Friday that his upcoming show in Greensboro, North Carolina, has been canceled in “solidarity” with those protesting the measure.

Springsteen and his E Street Band were slated to perform at the Greensboro Coliseum this Sunday. The roughly 15,000 ticketholders will all be eligible for a refund.

The newly enacted law requires individuals to use bathrooms that correspond to the gender on their birth certificate, and has drawn fierce criticism for excluding legal protections from gay and transgender people.”

Last week socialist Bernie Sanders sat down for an interview with the New York Daily News editorial board. This week, it was Hillary Clinton’s turn.
When asked specifically about her tax policy and how she plans to pay for proposed infrastructure “investment,” Clinton admitted her plan to pay for campaign proposals will require a $1 trillion tax hike over the next ten years.”

The Holy Bible Is Again On The List

It is number six on the American Library Association’s list of the ten most frequently challenged books. The reasons? “Religious viewpoint”. It shares the list with Fifty Shades Of Grey and Two Boys Kissing.

bible

NPR is making a big deal about this. Who is surprised?

The ALA defines a challenge as a “formal, written complaint filed with a library or school requesting that materials be removed because of content or appropriateness.”

Stone says 275 such challenges were made last year — lower than previous years — and while that’s something the association views as a positive, Stone says not all challenges make it to the Office for Intellectual Freedom database.”

I’ll be darned. Someone is keeping track of the little things like 275 complaints across the country in a year. They came up with a list of ten. The Bible is number six, indicating it got fewer than 27.5 complaints last year.

Get a life.

And now, like abortion, to these same “social justice” warriors, infecting themselves and others with herpes, AIDS, gonorrhea, syphilis and the like, isn’t just OK. It’s a personal accomplishment.

Or if not an accomplishment, certainly nothing you should be ashamed of.

For instance, feminist blogger Ella Dawson (@brosandprose), “shouted her status” by tweeting: “I’m not interested in playing identity politics. I’m a slut, and I have herpes. I am still a person who deserves respect.”

Sweet, Adorable Socialist Explains The Benefits Of Socialism

NSFW – Language

Turning Point USA has a habit of setting up tables at colleges and universities to support free trade and capitalism. They have hand-outs and they want to have intelligent discussions with students. Here is the table they set up at Denison University, a small liberal-arts school located in Granville, Ohio.

The table apparently triggered a reaction in a student and the TPUSA people recorded it. The young woman has some compelling points to make. You might learn something.

“Weapons bazaar: Small & heavy arms traded on Facebook by Libyan militants”

libya weapons

Machine guns, grenade launchers and anti-tank missiles are being traded via Facebook in Libya, research has revealed. The arms come from raids by militants on the arsenals of former leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, but also include some supplied by the US allies to their Libyan proxies.
The findings were revealed by the Geneva-based Small Arms Survey, which released a report entitled ‘The Online Trade of Light Weapons in Libya’ on Thursday.

The paper gives an astonishing set of cases telling how small arms and sophisticated weapons systems have come to be advertised and traded on Facebook by Libyan militants.”

Figured It Out: Trump Doesn’t Know The Difference Between Trade Deficit And Budget Deficit

“Trump Says He’ll Eliminate $19 Trillion of Debt with Trade”

Pull my finger

Pull my finger

In a weekend interview with the Washington Post, the GOP candidate for president said he could knock it out “over a period of eight years”, citing trade policy as his wrecking ball.

“I’m renegotiating all of our deals, the big trade deals that we’re doing so badly on. With China, $505 billion this year in trade. We’re losing with everybody,” he told reporter Bob Woodward.

When asked, Trump said he didn’t “think” he’d need to consider tax increases to accomplish his goal. (Woodward didn’t ask if there was any spending Trump would cut.)

“The power is trade. Our deals are so bad,” Trump stated.”

“Student accused of violating university ‘safe space’ by raising her hand”

Leftist students are trying to silence themselves. Ms Wilson was shut down and embarrassed but she still supports the ‘Safe space rules’.

Imogen Wilson wears Clark Kent Glasses and braces on her nose

Imogen Wilson wears Clark Kent Glasses and braces on her nose

A university student was threatened with being thrown out of a meeting after being accused of violating “safe space” rules – by raising her hand.

Imogen Wilson, the vice-president for academic affairs at Edinburgh University Students’ Association (EUSA), spoke out against safe space rules becoming “a tool for the hard left to use when they disagree with people”, following the incident last week.

Ms Wilson, 22, was subject to a “safe space complaint” over her supposedly “inappropriate hand gestures” during a student council meeting.

[…]

A complaint was made against Ms Wilson, who was then subjected to a vote on whether she should be removed from the room.

Although the vote went in her favour, with 18 people voting to remove her and 33 voting for her to be allowed to remain, she was later threatened with another complaint after shaking her head while someone was speaking.”

“Why Does Liberalism Have “Favored Groups”?”

A darn good question about the left, the group that preaches ‘Tolerance’. But, as the writer points out, they are only tolerant of some things. Love of God, social mores, laws, and self reliance are not some of the things they are tolerant of.

I would point out that people on the left are more interested in what they say than what they do. They don’t want to make the world better. They want to show how ‘Good’ they are by what they say. They say they care about the poor and otherwise unfortunate but they espouse ideas that would do those people harm. They call this ‘Progress’ but that is not what it is. It is a return to the evil that brought us the Soviet Union, Red China, Hitler’s Germany, and many other ways to kill off dissenters. That’s not progress even though that’s what they call it.

From ‘Crisis Magazine’, self described as, “A Voice for the Faithful Catholic Laity”.

School-Lockers-660x350-1459504364

I suggest that several things motivate the left. Perhaps the most fundamental reason why they seem to smile on Islam is their disdain for Christianity and Christian culture. It is something like “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” This is rooted primarily in the fact that traditional Christianity holds people to moral standards above their own making, and thereby offends the left’s notion of the autonomous self. Sex is the central issue here for the left.”

Obama As A Clown

What is it with Obama and finger gestures? First it was him giving the middle finger, next it was the ‘One Allah’ gesture at a summit of Islamic leaders. Now he has graduated to the two finger peace sign.

Foreign journalists are right. “Intellectually immature” describes him well.

“Foreign Newspapers Describe Barack Obama In One Word After Nuclear Summit”

obama-peace-man

UK and Israeli newspapers have one word for Obama – ‘clown’ – for flashing the peace sign as the photo of world leaders was taken at the end of what was a very serious two-day nuclear summit. David Cameron looked on unfavorably and others looked bemused, laughing at him no doubt. Russia didn’t bother to attend.

When he wasn’t censoring the French President for calling the danger what it is – Islamic terrorism – he was acting the part of the intellectually immature student and choom gang member in the Ché Guevara t-shirt.”

“When Huma Met Hillary: ‘Our Eyes Connected’”
