Lawless Seattle Democrats Make to Steal Woman’s Business

The city council of Seattle saw a pay-to-park lot owned by a private landowner and businesswoman and collectively thought to itself, “ya know, it would be nice to have the income from that parking lot for our own.” And so, in the typically lawless way that Democrats operate, the city council sent the woman a note telling her that they have decided that she must hand over the land to them so that they can make the money off the parking lot instead of her. The land owner, though, saw no reason to comply, and oddly enough and a court fight ensued.

Not long ago, the city of Seattle enviously eyed the land owned by Spokane resident Myrtle Woldson dreaming its greedy little dream that the income she derived from the pay-to-park business she had on that land was theirs.

So, they asked Mrs. Woldson if she would sell them the land. But the then 103-year-old businesswoman decided that she wasn’t at all interested in selling her lot.

Eric Khon Slams Rich Miller as Anti-Capitalist

Eric Kohn over at Illinois Mirror has a great piece that highlights the main difference between real capitalism and the sort of crony capitalism (which isn’t capitalism at all) that the left so dearly loves.

Rich Miller is a liberal who runs a well-trafficked website on Illinois politics called Capitol Fax. While he is certainly a Democrat and fully linked into that sort of politics, his site isn’t always mere propaganda for the left–though it is filled with such. Once in a while, Miller also slams a Democrat and he has certainly reported on situations and incidents that Democrats would rather be kept quiet. So, by this I mean his site isn’t mere propaganda as once in a while he does do some actual, good, unbiased reporting, or as Rush Limbaugh calls it a “random act of journalism.”

Miller’s site is also his business. He makes a tidy living off his efforts and he deserves his success for having built a website from the ground up that has become one of the state’s biggest sources of political news. It is also notable for being a website that makes money. Thar ain’t many of them around, to be sure. So, congrats to Rich.

Chicago Math: Three is Only Two

-By Warner Todd Huston

On WLS AM 89 radio political reporter Bill Cameron featured an interview with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel that shows just why math is soooooo darn hard for politicians.

The interview was about Rahm trying to get hundreds of millions of our tax dollars to be set aside and wasted–er, bestowed–on a presidential library for Barack Obama.

In the radio clip Rahm says the following:

“I have been to both the Lincoln library, the Carter library down in Atlanta, President Clinton’s library in Little Rock, and seen the economic and cultural energy that’s created.”

So, Rahm has been to “both” of all three locations?

No wonder it is so hard for our Chicago politicians to understand that hard math stuff. When three only equals two, I guess we can see why so much money mysteriously disappears in Chicago.

2014 Illinois Tea Party Tax Day Tea Party Rally in St. Charles

The Illinois Tea Party (illinoisteaparty.net) held its sixth annual Chicago Tax Day Tea Party rally, but this year without the “Chicago” part as the group held their rally in the western suburbs. Specifically, the event was held in the Arcadia Theater in St. Charles where some 300 participants attended to hear candidates for office, activists, and patriotic music.

The April 15 rally targeted Obamacare and Senator Dick Durbin, of course, but mentions of the Illinois Republican Party, Sec. of Treasury candidate and establishment GOPer Tom Cross, and Senator Mark Kirk drew as many boos as the Democrats showing that grass roots conservatives have about had it with the feckless, powerless Illinois GOP.


Head of the Illinois Tea Party Denise Cattoni

Not all elected Republicans were opposed, though. One of the very first speakers introduced by Ill. Tea Party chief Denise Cattoni was State Rep. Jeanne Ives of Wheaton. Ives, while not a dynamic speaker, had a great five-minute speech written up with her key point being that she was going to be troublesome to the state Republican Party. “I will continue to be troublesome, just as troublesome as possible in Springfield,” she said warming to her theme.


State Rep. Jeanne Ives

The first speaker was State Senator Jim Oberweis, who went on first so he could get to a fundraiser.


Candidate for U.S. Senate Jim Oberweis

Oberweis is running as an admitted “underdog” to ultra left-wing Senator Dick Durbin. Obie, as his supporters affectionately dub him, noted that we need to stop the extremism in Washington and made to whip the audience up to dump Durbin by having them repeat, “Millionaire. Career politician. Dick Durbin. Must Go!”

Writer Huston: Long Road Ahead for GM, But Don’t Count It Out

So, I was on Newsmax TV on Tuesday…

From the Newsmax website:

It will take a long time for General Motors to regain its reputation as a trusted carmaker — but don’t count it out, says Warner Todd Huston, a writer for Wizbang and Breitbart.com.

“Thirteen people killed tied to this [ignition] faulty switch and GM people running for cover,” Huston told Ed Berliner, guest host of “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.

“But . . . America loves to give people a second act. I wouldn’t count anybody down for the count. [The Rev.] Al Sharpton has been able to make a new living,” Huston said Tuesday.

Since February, GM has recalled 2.6 million vehicles with faulty ignition switches that could cause the engine to turn off and disable the power steering and airbags.

Asked whether the massive recall was a result of negligence on the part of GM, Huston said:

“There’s probably some [who were] saying, no, we’ll fix it later, others that are trying to avoid being held accountable, so, they try to push it off in the background,” he said.

“It’s a mixture of things. I don’t think it’s just . . . negligence, but it’s definitely negligence.”

POLICE STATE: Feds Still Buying Tons of Ammunition

“Where the people fear the government you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people you have liberty.”–John Basil Barnhill, 1914

If liberals want to get rid of guns in society, apparently the first place they should start is the federal government. For some unexplainable reason, nearly every federal agency has its own armed, para-military police force. From the Post Office, to the Bureau of Land Management, to even the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration they are all armed to the teeth! Why do these agencies need their own police forces? They don’t… except for the fact that they want to force their will on the American people and it’s easier to do that when you can kill anyone in your way.

You read that right, above. The U.S. Post Office has it’s own armed police force (It has for decades, by the way). So does the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Seriously. NOAA has a SWAT team that claims it needs 46,000 rounds of ammunition! It is beyond insensible.

Last year the Post Office had announced that it was going to buy thousands of rounds of ammunition and not long ago the Social Security Administration ordered 174,000 rounds of “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow-point” bullets.

Democrat Hypocrisy: Attacking Political Advocate Spending…. Unless They’re Unions

Democrats in New York once again prove that their bleating against money in politics is a lie with a new law that forces more campaign finance disclosure for everyone (read Republicans) except for union. Yes, while others are being forced to more disclosure, unions are being allowed to hide more campaign expenditures.

By exempting left-wing, Democrat-old Union donors, this is proof once again that Democrats don’t want money out of politics, they only want Republican money out of politics.

In New York, the state legislature passed a state budget that requires more disclosure of spending on issues and advocacy (outside elections) for everyone… except unions, naturally.

As Craine’s New York reported, “Spending by labor unions on campaign messages targeting their members and union retirees will remain exempt from disclosure under the state law…”

Breaking the Law: Pay Higher for Government Contractors Than Other Workers

-By Warner Todd Huston

Employees, whether unionized or not, who work for companies that have government contracts make far more per hour than employees who do similar jobs in the same area, a new study finds. This fact shows that government is essentially breaking its compensation own law.

The Service Contract Act of 1965 maintains that employees working for companies with government contracts must make the prevailing wage for their job in the area in which they work.

That means that if a carpet-layer in Peoria, Illinois makes $10.27 per hour, then any company that lays carpet for the government must pay their carpet-layers $10.27 per hour. Seems fair enough, right?

But the study shows that this isn’t happening. These government contractors aren’t making the prevailing wage. In fact, they are making far more than the prevailing wage! And all at the expense to the taxpayers, naturally.

Green Stormtroopers to Invade Private Homes to Ensure Green Compliance

-By Warner Todd Huston

Greenism is not only a religious principle it is also a fascist, authoritarian ideal and greenies in Germany are finally revealing the black soul of greenism by proposing a law that would give the state the power to forcibly enter a person’s home to ensure they are in compliance with green rules.

The city of Bremen, in northern Germany near the North Sea just west of Hamburg, is so keyed up to push its left-wing envrio-Nazi regulations that it has outlawed residents from having electric heaters. But the jackbooted enviros aren’t going to stop at a mere banning of the heaters. To make sure the lowly people have complied with the ban, greenists in Bremen want to give police the power to enter a home without a warrant to make sure that home owners or apartment dwellers have abided by the rule and gotten rid of their evil, evil electric space heaters.

As the Germany website Liberal Magazine reports, “The proposed law by Environment Senator Joachim Lohse foresees a system of monitoring that allows for detection of violations and punishment. According to the Weser-Kurier daily, officials would ‘in carrying out the duties of their office, tread upon private property and enter private buildings.’ Here Lohse is creating nothing less than an environment police.”

Now, this whole idea runs contrary to Article 13 of the German Constitution which holds that the people have an “inviolability” of their homes and that the state cannot just come stormtrooping through private property whenever they get a hankering to get its thug on.

Iowa Dem Bruce Braley Slams Iowa Farmers As Unfit for Office

-By Warner Todd Huston

Iowa Congressman Bruce Braley is now running for the Senate in the Hawkeye State and he has a message for Iowans: Iowa farmers aren’t good enough for elected office. Iowa needs rich, lawyers like himself in office. At least, this is what he told a roomful of trial lawyers in Texas.

Appearing in a room full of rich trial lawyers who make a living off the backs of the people, Braley noted that he is *one of them* and isn’t like any old lowly Iowa farmer.

It should be noted that one of Iowa’s biggest economic sectors is its farming community.

Naturally, Braley was trying to get these trial lawyers to give him big campaign donations from their deep pockets.

“To put this in stark contrast,” Braley told the gathering of skinners “if you help me win this race, you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice. Someone who’s been literally fighting tort reform for 30 years, in a visible and public way, on the Senate Judiciary Committee.”

“Or, you might have a farmer from Iowa, who never went to law school, never practiced law, serving as the next chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee,” he continued.

“Because if Democrats lose the majority, Chuck Grassley will be chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee,” he proudly concluded.

So, regular, Iowans who are not part of the “47%” aren’t good enough for office in Iowa?

Yesterday I wrote about how Democrats in Cincinnati threw a big welcome home party for a criminal convicted of vote fraud. Even MSNBC’s Al Sharpton, a man guilty of inciting to murder, came on down to Cincy to celebrate this criminal. Well, now, with the tale of a “queer theory” professor from the U of California who has been charged of physically assaulting a teenaged girl who was protesting abortion, I have yet another story that shows that to be a Democrat/liberal/communist is to be a supporter and promulgator of crime.

To recap, the Cincy story was that of vote fraud criminal Melowese Richardson who was convicted of voting six times in the 2012 elections. Race agitators convinced the state to release this criminal after only a few months in jail because RAAAAAAAACISM. Upon release, local Democrats and national headliners threw a big party for her celebrating her criminality and urging everyone to be juuuuuust like her.

I was noting that even though Democrats are criminals as a matter of course, at least they had the decency in days past to be ashamed of being convicted of some crime or another and acted duly chastised. These days they have no shame whatsoever and actually celebrate their criminal behavior as is obvious by the gala celebration given the Cincy criminal.

Well, this week we se yet another example of this criminality celebrated as all things good and right.

Libs Against Money in Politics Ignore Unions Corrupting the System

As the left runs around like Chicken Littles claiming that the evil Koch brothers are “buying the country,” they ignore the fact that unions have poured many times more money into the system to buy themselves influence than the Kochs ever have or ever will. The left ignores this fact because unions spend all their money on extremely liberal causes and politicians and they don’t care if they have to break the law to do it.

Firstly let’s get the facts out in the open. A new report by Mercatus finds that the top 25 political donors for the last 25 years is littered with unions donating to left-wing causes. In fact, the number two and number four biggest donors are public employee unions.

As an aside, it is also instructive to note that number one political donor is the hardcore left-wing group ActBlue and not by just a little. ActBlue has donated nearly 100 million dollars to leftists and they have only been around since 2004. By comparison the next closest big donor is the government union the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) which comes in at about the 60 million mark.

Anyway, Mercatus found that of the top 25 donors, 14 of them are left-wing unions. The chart also proves that nearly 60 percent of all donations were made by unions and that’s about $552 million donated since 1989–all gone to the left.

Ill. Rep. Gutiérrez Likely On Verge of Ethics Charges Filed Against Him

New reports suggest that Chicago Congressman Luis Gutiérrez (D, ILL) is likely expecting to be charged with ethics violations in Washington.

USA Today reports that Gutiérrez has already spent some $30,000 in legal fees in preparation of defending himself from charges of ethics violations and no violations have yet been filed. It seems clear that the Congressman is sure they are on the verge of being filed.

Even with no investigation announced, in January the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) noted that at least one question over the Congressman’s actions was being held for consideration after the Illinois primaries (Election Day is March 18).

Naturally, Gutiérrez is refusing to make any statements on this matter–and that is probably a good idea since the whole matter is completely up in the air at this time.

Illinois continues to rack up plaudits as one of the worst states in the entire country for every measure that makes a successful state. Bad bond ratings, among the highest for people moving away from her, worst pension messes, crummy education, etc. And now, Illinois has won the booby prize as the single worst state in the union for its unemployment track record. Yaaaa, Illinois.

At 9 percent unemployment, Illinois now has the worst unemployment rate of every state around it in the Midwest. But even worse for the Land of Sinkin’–er, I mean Land of Lincoln–the state has the worst downward trends in employment for the whole country. Illinois’ unemployment rate has gone up more times than its gone down and that is the worst record in the whole country over the last five years.

As the Illinois Policy Institute recently noted, “Illinois’ recovery from the Great Recession has been hindered by self-inflicted wounds. After the 2011 tax hikes, the Illinois jobless rate jumped from 9.4 percent to 10.2 percent. The US average declined in the same period.”
Meanwhile, in the surrounding Midwestern state, every state but Illinois has had a downward trend for unemployment by about an average of some 2 percent. And yet, Democrat controlled Illinois has seen unemployment go up and up.

Senator Harry Reid is indulging an absurd habit these days. He’s become a Koch head, a Koch addict, a Koch whore. He just can’t get enough of libertarian campaign donors Charles and David Koch and Reid’s lost his tiny little mind over them blaming them for everything that he thinks is wrong with the country. Naturally, Reid is a liar.

Charles and David Koch of Koch Industries have donated hundreds of millions to center right candidates and causes over the last 30 years, something, Reid says, means they are “buying” politics in the country.

Before we even talk further about the Koch brothers, we should note that left-winger George Soros has spent far, far more of his personal fortune to push American politics leftward than the Kochs have spent pushing it rightward. And where is Reid to complain that extremist, left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer is spending hundreds of millions of his money to push the myth of global warming down our throats? Where is Reid to complain of the billions that MoveOn.org has s\pent on politics? Worse, where is Reid to whine that unions are buying politics–and unions have spent trillions more over the last 50 years than either Soros OR the Kochs. Of course, the lying hypocrite Senator from Nevada doesn’t care about Soros, the unions, or your Steyers because they all spend their billions on Democrats and their Euroesque causes.

So, if you make less that $40,000 a year and find the high cost of Obamacare to be overwhelming, President Obama has a message for you: cancel your stupid cable TV and you dang iPhone service you ingrates. THEN you will be able to afford his mandated-by-law take over of our national healthcare system.

This is what Obama told a Latino audience at a townhall held on March 6 by several Spanish language media networks.

Obama was presented with a question about a family that makes $36,000 a year and found that the cheapest Obamacare plan they could find would cost them $315 a month. This, the family felt, was too expensive and something they could not afford.

The President’s response was chilling. Obama said, “if you looked at their cable bill, their telephone, their cell phone bill… it may turn out that, it’s just they haven’t prioritized health care.”

California Town’s Use of Eminent Domain on Water Company All Wet

A city government in California is thinking of illicitly using eminent domain to essentially steal a water company from its owners because residents are unhappy with their water bills. If they are unhappy now, it will get far worse once the government owns the water service. Once again California serves as an example of what not to do.

The city fathers of Claremont, California are attempting a move that should frighten every American, a move that would seem to prove that government thinks it has no limits on its power. With the claimed goal of keeping water rates low, the city is considering using eminent domain laws to force a local water company into allowing the city to take over its facilities and declare its resources government property.

Jon Coupal of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association explained the rules of eminent domain in a recent op ed.

First, under the U.S. Constitution, if government takes private property, it must pay just compensation. Moreover, under California law, when government attempts to seize a private utility, there is the additional requirement of a showing of need a seemingly insurmountable hurdle for the city of Claremont to justify replacing the current provider & Government cannot simply say they want to go into the water business to be able to use eminent domain.

Being unhappy about a water bill does not qualify for the city to invoke eminent domain.

Several years ago a mother who cares for a disabled teen was shocked to discover that the Gov. of Illinois was going to force her into a union because she gets state aid to care for her son. She protested this forced unionization and the forced paying of dues that goes with it. Now a union professor is saying that unions should use violence against this woman to silence her.

Dr. Alan Singer, a Professor of Secondary Education at Hofstra University, urged unions to take “aggressive, illegal actions” saying it was “the only way” to stop people like Pam Harris from hurting the union cause of extorting business and government.

Mrs. Harris is the woman behind the Illinois lawsuit fighting state imposed unionism (Harris v. Quinn) that has made it to the U.S. Supreme Court of the United States.

A union thug in Michigan was wide-eyed with faux shock when he was told that publicly posting the names of workers who opted out of the union was viewed as an intimidation tactic.

Union thug Lawrence Roehrig, international vice president of AFSCME and secretary treasurer of Michigan AFSCME Council 25 (that is a government worker’s union, folks) defended the practice of outing the workers who opted out of the union under Michigan’s new right to work rules saying that it was just a way to educate workers.

In the same way a business owner is paying for “protection” when a mobster demands payment to make sure nothing “happens” to them, thug Roehrig said, “You’re not harassing them. It gives you an indication of who’s paying and who isn’t.”

Despite her murderous past, the Illinois Department of Insurance hired this killer Muslim as an Obamacare “navigator” to push the President’s odious healthcare take over onto citizens in that state.

So, Obama had a terrorist pushing his Obamacare law on citizens in his own home state.

But it turns out that the Kochs are 59th on the big donor list. Worse, liberals take up almost all of the top 10 donors.

There has been gnashing of teeth and rending of clothes among extreme lefties over the big money donations made to conservative and libertarian causes by David and Charles Koch. They helped create the political activist group Americans For Prosperity and have funded many, many such groups across the nation. This center right activism, of course, makes them a target of the haters on the left and push them into top spot as the left’s most hated boogy men.

But a recent look at the nations deep pocket donors shows that the brothers are way, way down the list of big donors and that lefties fill most of those top slots.

Archbishop of Canterbury Opposes UK Welfare Cuts

-By Warner Todd Huston

America isn’t the only country having trouble with out of control government spending, nor is it the only place with leftists trying to stop any sensible limits on that spending. Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby is joining the chorus against the British government’s attempts to get its budget under control by backing the 27 bishops who signed a letter protesting recent cuts in welfare programs.

Welby wrote to the Daily Mirror and insisted, “I’m entirely with them.”

The Archbishop is responding to the open letter signed by 27 of Britain’s 59 Anglican bishops who claimed that hunger is a “national crisis” and that the welfare cuts damage the “safety net” for the nation’s poor.

Harry Reid Claims Those Who Say Obamacare Costs Them More Are Liars

From the floor of the Senate, Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid has stated that all those thousands of Americans that have reported that Obamacare is driving up their costs, not reducing them, and that Obamacare is a “horror story” are simply lying. Yes, Harry Reid just called thousands of Americans liars.

During remarks he made on the floor of the Senate on February 26, Reid talked about those many Americans who are reporting how Obamacare has hurt them. He said, “there’s plenty of horror stories being told,” about Obamacare. “All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.”

But the stories are undeniable. Obamacre is hurting Americans from coast to coast. Are you telling us, Senator Reid, that all these thousands of Americans are liars?

Here are just a few stories of the thousands being reported in the media.

South Oregon Proves Gov’t Subsides Are Bad for You

The Beautiful Rogue River in South Oregon

A very long article at the conservative Washington Free Beacon describes how economic recession and a changing timber industry has turned parts of southern Oregon into a “lawless” area with toothless authorities, few police, and empty government treasuries. But what the article really proves is that government subsides created this problem in the first place proving that government largess is a bad thing in the long run.

The piece, “The Lawless South,” by CJ Ciaramella, describes the hard times that parts of southern Oregon have fallen upon. The hard times have come from several directions all converging to smack the area with high unemployment, plunging home prices, and failing industry.

The area Ciaramella is around Josephine County, way south of Portland and near the Oregon/California border. This area is in such bad economic times that the various governments, city and county, have had to make massive cuts. The cuts Ciaramella focuses on are the cuts in policing, hence his “lawless” title.
