Group: Muslim voter registration up 300,000 since 2012 

Leave a comment

Damn 300,000 more DemocRat voters. Sigh

More than a quarter million Muslims have become registered voters since the last presidential election, a Muslim group reported on Tuesday. In June there were 824,000 registered Muslim voters whose first, middle or last names matched a list of 43,538 traditionally Muslim names, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which used a private national database of voter information. That number represents a significant bump from the 500,000 voters the group accounted for in 2012, using the same method. One reason for the surge, CAIR suggests, is increased political involvement resulting from rhetorical attacks on that faith community by public figures. While the press release does not mention GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump by name, it does contain two links to articles about how the candidate is attacking Muslims and fueling prejudice, hate incidents.

End of conservative Supreme Court: Clarence Thomas may be next to leave 

Leave a comment

With Justice Thomas thinking of retiring it becomes crystal clear that Donald Trump must become president.

Justice Clarence Thomas, a reliable conservative vote on the Supreme Court, is mulling retirement after the presidential election, according to court watchers. Thomas, appointed by former President George H.W. Bush and approved by the Senate after a bitter confirmation, has been considering retirement for a while and never planned to stay until he died, they said. He likes to spend summers in his RV with his wife. His retirement would have a substantial impact on control of the court. The next president is expected to immediately replace the seat opened by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, providing a one-vote edge in the court that is currently divided 4-4. Should Thomas leave, that slight majority would continue if Donald Trump becomes president. If it’s Hillary Clinton, then she would get the chance to flip two Republican seats, giving the liberals a 6-3 majority.

Power-Hungry, Micromanaging Regime Creeps Want You to Eat Stale Food

1 Comment

This is from Rush Limbaugh.com.

My family of four will throw out about ten pounds of food per year.

My parents were raised during the depression and we were taught not to waste food.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: You want to know how bad it is economically?  Try this.  This is from the Washington Examiner: “The Agriculture Department has determined that 36 pounds of food per person is wasted every month, about 21% of the available food in the United States.” So now the Regime is coming after average, ordinary Americans as wasteful, uncaring, slothful,slobs.  (You know who you are.)So, “36 pounds of food per person is wasted every month, about 21% of the available food in the United States. And one big reason,” the Regime’s Agriculture Department says that “those expiration dates are wrong or overly cautious.” So they have a “solution. Hold your nose and just eat it. Even if it is 18 months past the expiration date.” I am not making this up.  As a way of combating what they claim is profligate waste on the part of a bunch of spoiled-rotten Americans, you need to start eating food that is even 18 months past its expiration date.

Because these expiration dates are wrong anyway.  They have no basis in reality or fact, that food is still good.  This could also be titled, “Managing the Decline, Chapter 5.”  Here we have our caring Nanny State wanting all of us to start eating stale food.  Obama’s Agriculture Department thinks that flavor and texture and freshness and the nutritional value of food is vastly overrated, as exhibited by expiration dates.

We are to be no different now than cows and horses eating months-old bales of hay.  That’s right, my friends. “The masses” should join everywhere else in the world and start eating antique food as a tribute to the efficiency of the state.  With so much food be wasted, what’s the answer?  Eat spoiled food! Eat food that has survived long beyond the expiration date.  Now, I can imagine some of you might think, “Rush, wait a minute.

“Before you go to town on this, they might have a point.  There’s a lot of stuff out there the expiration date could be totally wrong.  Rush, have you not opened a bag of potato chips long after the expiration date and it tasted fine?”  Yeah, have to admit that I have.  “Rush, haven’t you prepared a box of Kraft Mac & Cheese long past the expiration date and it tasted fine?”  I don’t know about that.  “Come on, Rush, haven’t you given your dog or your cat food long beyond the expiration date on the can?”

Absolutely not.  That stuff’s rotten to begin with.  Now, you might think, “You know, the expiration dates are a little aggressive, and the food does last longer than the date.” But wait, folks, because what’s next?  There’s always a “What’s next?”  If this is the way the Regime wants to combat what they think is food waste… By the way, that whole notion there, you and me and everybody else are eating more than our share and wasting it?

In itself, it’s a great illustration of the contempt these people have for what they consider to be average, ordinary Americans.  You just don’t know how to live your life. You’re wasting all this food, while there’s starving in Biafra, while they’re starving in Darfur, who knows wherever, and you’re wasting it all — and we’re wasting a bunch of water trying to produce food to replace that which doesn’t need to be replaced because the expiration dates are wrong.

So let’s just start taking the quality of everything down.  What’s next?  How about medicine, folks?  How about next the Regime starts calculating the amount of medicine that’s wasted.  Oh, yeah.  You know how expensive this is, because Big Pharma is just a bunch of rapists! Big Pharma, they overcharge. They don’t care about people getting sick, and they don’t care about people getting well.  Big Pharma is like tobacco, they’re out there (this is what the left says) killing their customers, which is actually what they believe.

So the next thing that would happen, “Hey, take this expired medicine.  We’ve run tests.  Does doesn’t matter what the expiration date that your pharmacist put on that label is.  It’s fine.  Go ahead and take it.” So a bunch of maniacal control freaks…  Then you look at the food that ends up on a school lunch tray sponsored by Michelle Obama, and you find out why so much food is wasted.  They’re serving absolute rotten junk, all in the name of health.

So eating old and tasteless food now will become a sign of loyalty to the Regime, a sign of maybe even patriotism.  They’re gonna ration health care, and they’re gonna ration medicine, and one of the ways you’re gonna do it is using the expiration date.  And there are gonna be death panels.  You’ll be told how long you can shower.  In California that’s already beginning to happen.  Power companies will soon control everybody’s thermostats, on the orders of the Regime, because everybody’s wasting everything, you see.

You’re just a bunch of selfish, profligate wasters, and people who know better have to come in and take control.  Where’d this whole notion of we’re wasting food start anyway?  Maybe with Jeremiah Wright talking about all the food cruise ships throw overboard could feed Haiti for a year or whatever it was he said.  All of this is happening, all of this is being talked about, all of this has as its root Earth Day, which is today.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: The funny thing about top-down, authoritarian command-and-control economies is that they just don’t work.

Free markets decide what works and what’s best, and Obama’s electric car promises were as valid as his Obamacare promises.  They were as empty and as meaningless.  Obamacare far more damaging because you just can’t opt out of Obamacare like you can opt out of your electric car or your hybrid.  But both were based on the same thing ill-conceived ideology pitched by Hillary Clinton when she says she’s gonna topple the 1%.

“We’re gonna take down all the signs of a good life. We’re gonna take down all the trappings of success. We’re going to obliterate the outward indications of prosperity.  That’s not fair.  When everybody doesn’t have it, it’s offensive, it is irritating, and it’s dispiriting, and we’re gonna get rid of it.  The only people who are gonna have anything are gonna be your Dear Leaders, and you’re not gonna be able to do or say a thing about it.”

These people do not think like us, and they do not share our values.  They don’t know what’s good for anyone else any more than they know what’s good for themselves.  They’re just a bunch of power hungry, micromanaging creeps, when you get right down to it, who really don’t know what they think they know.  That is the real truth. Now we’ve gotta eat stale food as a sign of patriotism, a sign of good citizenship.  Next will be stale medicine, because the Regime is going to demand efficiency and fealty.

You had better do what they say.

RUSH: Here is Steve somewhere in Indiana. It’s great to have you on the EIB Network, sir.  Hello.

CALLER:  Hi, Rush.  How are you doing?

RUSH:  Very well.  Thank you.

CALLER:  You changed my life. About five years ago, I started listening to you.  I actually voted for Obama the first time, and then my eyes were opened.  But, anyway, earlier you were talking about how people throw away food.

RUSH:  Well, let me restate that, because that’s a good point.  The government is claiming that the average American wastes 21 pounds of food a year or some such thing, and not necessary because expiration dates are wrong.  So the government is going to start encouraging people to ignore expiration dates and just keep eating stuff. Don’t throw it away.

CALLER:  Right.  Well, I’ve been a trashman for going on 20 years, and I’ve picked up several different towns, very large towns, and I noticed that when you go into what I would say is a low-rent district, that —

RUSH:  Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.  Let me help here.  That’s another phrase that would be better. You don’t say it that way. You went to an “economically challenged” district.

CALLER:  Okay.

RUSH:  Low-rent area, that’s unnecessarily judgmental and is quite unhelpful.  So you visited an “economically challenged locale,” let’s say. That’s where you went.

CALLER:  Okay.  Well, on those days I noticed on those routes that there was a lot of food being thrown away.

RUSH:  Wait.  In the low-rent district they were throwing a lot of food away?

CALLER:  Quite a bit of food, yes, and then you would go to a neighborhood that wasn’t as economically challenged —

RUSH:  Yes?

CALLER:  — and there wasn’t that kind of waste going on.

RUSH:  Wow.  What do you think? What does that say?

CALLER:  Well, I’m assuming that if you have to work for your money to pay for the food, you’re not gonna throw it away.

RUSH:  Ah.  Yes.  Yes.  The old saw about appreciating it.

CALLER:  That’s correct.

RUSH:  So you think that explains it, that people that work for their money have greater appreciation for it.  How about the possibility that if they’re working for it, they don’t spend as much, and they don’t buy that much more than they need in the first place?

CALLER:  Well, I’m sure that has a lot to do with it also.

RUSH:  Could be.  Could be.  It’s an interesting observation.  We, of course, here on the EIB Network are drawing no conclusions, ladies and gentlemen.  It’s just interesting data points, that this 20-year-old trash hauler has observed, that in the low-rent areas that he visits there certainly is more thrown-away food than in the, shall we say, less economically deprived areas.  And for that we can each draw our own conclusions.  (interruption)  Yeah.  On the other side of the glass they’re saying, “Tiptoe, Rush. Tiptoe! Go real slow here.”

I’ve gotten nowhere near it.

Furious Jordanian King quotes Clint Eastwood to US officials after gruesome pilot murder

1 Comment

This is from BizPac Review.

Jordan’s King Abdullah has the right idea about these animals need to be hunted down and executed and their support network among their families wiped out also.

 

During the course of a conversation Jordan’s King Abdullah had with House members following news of the gruesome execution of the Jordanian pilot, the furious ruler quoted a line of iconic tough-guy actor Clint Eastwood from his film, “Unforgiven.”

After Islamic State terrorists released as 22-minute video depicting the young pilot being burned to death after he was doused with gasoline, Abdullah met in a private session with members of the House Armed Services Committee, the Washington Examiner reported.

“He said there is going to be retribution like ISIS hasn’t seen,” said Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr., a Marine Corps wartime veteran who was in the meeting with the king. “He mentioned ‘Unforgiven’ and he mentioned Clint Eastwood, and he actually quoted a part of the movie.”

Eastwood both directed and starred in the film, playing the role of a retired Old West gunslinger who reluctantly takes on one last job.

The Examiner reported:

Hunter would not say which part of “Unforgiven” the king quoted, but noted it was where Eastwood’s character describes how he is going to deliver his retribution. There is a scene in the picture in which Eastwood’s character, William Munny, says, “Any man I see out there, I’m gonna kill him. Any son of a bitch takes a shot at me, I’m not only going to kill him, I’m going to kill his wife and all his friends and burn his damn house down.”

“He’s angry,” Hunter said of his conversation with the king. “They’re starting more sorties tomorrow than they’ve ever had. They’re starting tomorrow. And he said, ‘The only problem we’re going to have is running out of fuel and bullets.”

“He’s ready to get it on,” Hunter added. “He really is. It reminded me of how we were after 9/11. We were ready to give it to them.”

Neither Abdullah nor the lawmakers brought up President Obama’s name during the meeting, according to Hunter.

Obama urges Americans to ‘be prepared’ … but wait till you hear what for

Leave a comment

This is from Liberty UnYieding.

You cannot make up this special kind of crazy.

 

 

“President Obama admits to not having a strategy to deal with the terrorist crisis in Syria,” writes Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner, “but that doesn’t mean [he thinks] Americans are off the hook for preparing their own disaster strategy.” Sounds sort of encouraging, no?

At first blush, it seems as if the commander-in-chief is at least proactively encouraging his constituents to brace for the possibility of a terrorist attack, by being on the alert, for example, for packages or bags deliberately left behind on buses, trains, or subways. Never mind that he told us in 2013 that the “tide of war” was “receding” and that al Qaeda and its spawn had been “decimated.” Credit where credit is due. And it appears that Obama deserves credit for proclaiming September “National Preparedness Month.”

Not so fast. His official proclamation, which is here, turns out to be just another lame excuse to preach about the real killer crisis that threatens the very fiber of our being: climate change.

Oh, don’t get Obama wrong. He’s aware of terrorism and even includes it in his list of things that go bump in the night. Of course it comes last — after hurricanes, wildfires, and cyber attacks — and even then it gets short shrift, with most of the text devoted to his Climate Action Plan. From the document:

Our Nation also faces longer wildfire seasons, more severe droughts, heavier rainfall, and more frequent flooding in a changing climate. That is why, as part of my Climate Action Plan, we are committed to building smarter, more resilient infrastructure that can withstand more frequent and more devastating natural disasters and to supporting our communities as they prepare for these impacts.

Bedard mentions that Obama also announced an “America’s PrepareAthon!” drill for September 30 for Americans to show they are ready for the worst. One wonders whether he wants to hear from those have suffered mightily but survived under his tenure as president.

Obama: Some in GOP want ‘segregation’ for gays

Leave a comment

This is from the Washington Examiner.

How does the left come up with this kind of B.S.?

No one I know wants to segregate homosexuals.

We just do not want their perversion shoved down our throats and be told it is a life style we must accept.

People on the right would not become physically or verbally abusive to homosexuals.

We how ever want to have the right not have to bake cakes or photograph their weddings.

 

President Obama in a speech on Friday hammered Republicans who oppose gay rights, saying that some of them wanted to “legalize segregation based on sexual orientation.”

“In some states, they’re so far in the past they’re even pushing laws to legalize segregation based on sexual orientation,” said Obama in an address to the Democratic National Convention winter meeting in Washington.

“As Democrats, we’ve let the other side define the word ‘freedom’ for too long,” he added.

Obama’s comments were likely a reference to a recent  Democratic National Convention winter bill that would have allowed businesses to refuse service to gay customers.

Supporters said the bill would protect the religious freedom of business owners, but the measure invited harsh criticism from many major companies, including Major League Baseball and Delta Air Lines.

Both of the state’s Republican senators urged Gov. Jan Brewer, R-Ariz., to reject the bill.

Brewer on Wednesday vetoed the bill, saying that “religious liberty is a core American and Arizona value [and] so is non-discrimination.”

On Friday, the White House said that Obama believed Brewer “did the right thing” in vetoing the measure.

It begins: Pro-Keystone XL Democrat distances himself from Obama

Begich, who voted for the Keystone XL pipeline and is up for re-election in 2014, said Obama “missed his chance to talk about national energy security in any meaningful way.”

“Alaskans know that to ensure our national energy security, we must be more aggressive on natural resource development,” Begich said. “From building the Keystone pipeline to offshore drilling in Alaska, we should be taking advantage of our domestic energy potential, and I will keep fighting and using every committee post and option available to do just that.”

Obama mentioned energy independence and climate change in his speech Tuesday night, but never mentioned coal or the Keystone XL pipeline. Politico has the energy buzzword breakdown:

• “Energy:” 8 mentions

• “Oil:” 5 mentions

• “Natural gas:” 4 mentions

• “Carbon pollution:” 3 mentions

Obama: Mayors need extension of jobless benefits, minimum-wage hike

Leave a comment

This is from The Washington Examiner.

I think 26 weeks of unemployment is way too much to collect.

99 weeks or more is a welfare and it keeps some people

perpetually unemployed. 

It also instills a sense of entitlement.

I hear people say we have a right to unemployment as we

pay into the fund.

It is their employer that pays the unemployment tax.

I say no minimum wage increase but major tax reform .

I drew unemployment during the Carter years and it made me

feel like I was stealing or dirty. 

 

President Obama turned to newly elected mayors Friday to press for an extension of unemployment benefits and an increase in the minimum wage, legislative goals that have both stalled on Capitol Hill.

“You’ve got potentially 1.3 million people who, during Christmas-time, are going to lose their unemployment benefits, at a time when it’s still very difficult for a lot of folks to find a job,” Obama said before a gathering with the city leaders Friday at the White House.

“That’s not just bad for those individuals and for those families, that’s bad for our economy and that’s bad for our cities,” he added.

The president met with New York City Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Boston Mayor-elect Martin Walsh, among other city executives.

Unemployment insurance is set to expire for 1.3 million Americans on Dec. 28. Democrats wanted the benefits included in a recent budget deal negotiated by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and his upper chamber counterpart Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., but the negotiators failed to agree on terms.

The House passed a version of the bipartisan budget pact but did not include an extension of jobless benefits. The Senate is expected to pass the budget bill next week and Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has said unemployment insurance will get first priority in January. It is likely lawmakers will make the benefits retroactive.

Some conservatives, however, say extending the benefits beyond 26 weeks keeps some people perpetually unemployed.

The president also called for a boost in the minimum wage, a State of the Union proposal that has gained little traction among conservative lawmakers.

Earlier in the year, Obama called for raising the minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $9.

However, he recently voiced support for a Democratic bill that would increase the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.

“There are some areas — for example, raising the minimum wage — that could have a tremendous boost in a lot of the cities,” Obama said, “where there are a lot of service workers who get up and do some of the critical work for all of us every single day but often times still find themselves just barely above poverty or, in some cases, below poverty.”

 

 

Ted Cruz criticizes DOJ for arguing international treaty can trump the Constitution

Leave a comment

This is from The Washington Examiner.

This is Damned Dangerous territory.

Nothing I repeat Nothing  trumps The Constitution.

We are headed into a Dictatorship.

“Wake Up America Before Liberty and Freedom are Lost .”

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

.Ronald Reagan

Justice Department attorneys are advancing an argument at the Supreme Court that could allow the government to invoke international treaties as a legal basis for policies such as gun control that conflict with the U.S. Constitution, according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

Their argument is that a law implementing an international treaty signed by the U.S. allows the federal government to prosecute a criminal case that would normally be handled by state or local authorities.

That is a dangerous argument, according to Cruz.

“The Constitution created a limited federal government with only specific enumerated powers,” Cruz told the Washington Examiner prior to giving a speech on the issue today at the Heritage Foundation.

“The Supreme Court should not interpret the treaty power in a manner that undermines this bedrock protection of individual liberty,” Cruz said.

In his speech, Cruz said the Justice Department is arguing “an absurd proposition” that “could be used as a backdoor way to undermine” Second Amendment rights, among other things.

The underlying case, Bond v. United States, involves a woman charged with violating the international ban on chemical weapons because she used toxic chemicals to harass a former friend who had an affair with her husband.

Under the Constitution, such an offense would be handled at the state level. In Bond’s case, the federal government prosecuted her under the Chemical Weapons Convention Implementation Act.

That law implements the Chemical Weapons Convention, the international treaty Syrian dictator Bashar Assad is accused of violating in that country’s vicious civil war.

“The problem here is precisely that Congress, rather than implementing the treaty consistent with our constitutional system of federalism, enacted a statute that, if construed to apply to petitioner’s conduct, would violate basic structural guarantees and exceed Congress’s enumerated powers,” according to Bond’s lawyers.

The Judicial Crisis Network’s Carrie Severino said the Bond case could have ramifications for many other issues.

“If the administration is right, the treaty power could become a backdoor way for the federal government to do everything from abolishing the death penalty nationwide, to outlawing homeschooling, to dramatically curtailing the states’ rights to regulate abortion,” she told the Washington Examiner.

The Judicial Crisis Network is a conservative legal activist group.
