Illegals Don’t Want to be Americans, So Keep Them Out

One of the things that the far left always says to excuse lawbreaking illegal immigrants is that they just want to be “like Americans” and attain the American dream just like immigrants to the US always have. This, however, is a lie. Many immigrants no longer have any desire to become Americans and just want our money so they can send it back home.

The old American dream was the promise that a “foreigner” could immigrant to the US, become a citizen, get a job, save their money, and make a life for them and more especially for their children.

For many of these people it was a special mark of pride to learn English and then learn enough about American history and its system of government to pass the citizenship test in order to become an official naturalized American.

This is what Democrats are invoking when they try to excuse lawbreaking illegals today. They claim that immigrants today are exactly the same as those of all our yesteryears.

But even the former president of Mexico is here to disabuse Democrats of this lie.

Illinois’ House Reps Have More Wealth Than Average Member of Their Electorate

(Here is my very first piece over at The Watchdog….)

-By Warner Todd Huston

A recent survey of the wealth of members of Congress revealed that, on average, it would take the combined wealth of 18 American households to equal the wealth of a single member of Congress. While this is an averaged statistic and individual cases vary, a review of the wealth of members of the Illinois delegation to Washington proves the rule rather than the exception.

The January report by OpenSecrets.org found that, “The median net worth of a member of Congress was $1,029,505 in 2013… compared with an average American household’s median net worth of $56,355.”

It is apropos to review what members of Congress are paid as they serve in Washington. Members of the House of Representatives are paid $174,000 a year, a salary that has been frozen in place since 2009. Speakers of the House and majority and minority leaders make a bit more than the average Congressman to befit their higher positions. Members of the House cannot collect a pension until they have served for five years, meaning they’d have to win election three times. Their pensions are never higher than 80 percent of their highest salary and is paid out at retirement age–unless they are still working somewhere in the federal government. In that case, they can’t collect a pension until they are no longer earning a federal salary.

So, what about Illinois? Well, the congressional salary itself certainly puts our representatives in a higher tax bracket than the average citizen of their state. According to information released by the U.S. Census, the median household income of the 13 million some citizens in Illinois is $56,777 annually. That is about 7 percent higher than the national average…

The Senate is Finally Getting Back to ‘Normal’ After the Disastrous Reign of Democrats, Harry Reid

Yes, we have some major problems with the Senate but there was a little good news coming out of the upper chamber this week. The new Senate Majority Leader, Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell, has gone back to allowing the minority party to begin the normal process of submitting amendments and actually voting on bills!

It may seem like a small thing, but when scumbag Harry Reid ran the Senate he made a mockery of our government by refusing to allow the normal rules to work the way they are supposed to.

The Elimination of Christianity in the West Brings Disrespect for Life

Abortion activists are taking the next, logical step in their justification of abortion by agreeing that, yes, abortion kills a human baby, but… “so what?” It is just the next logical step in abortion apologia that results from the end of the Christian philosophical influence in society. But we don’t see that end affecting just abortion. We see it throughout society.

Whether leftists like the idea or not, the United States of America was conceived as a Christian nation. Not a Catholic one, not a Muslim one, not a Jewish one and not a secular one, but a Christian nation built solidly on the Christian ethos. Every state initially formed with a particular flavor of Protestantism as a state sanctioned religion and our entire culture was fueled by the twin influences of Christian philosophy and the Scottish Enlightenment.

It is certainly true that our form of government is essentially secular in that it is not guided or controlled by any particular religion, but the ethics underlying those governments where heavily informed by Christian ethics.

The left, though, has been angling to destroy the underlying Christian ethos since the turn of the last century as academia and the left became imbued with communist and socialist propaganda.

CNN Caught Red-Handed Lying About French ‘No-Go Zones’ Debate

Early this week CNN went after Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal after he insisted that there are “no-go zones” in France, parts of France filled with Muslims that French police would not go. CNN claimed this was untrue and attacked the Gov. for saying there was. But for months CNN has said exactly the same thing that Jindal said despite their sudden claims to the contrary.

Eric Wemple, media critic of The Washington Post, discovered that before attacking Jindal and Fox News for using the “no-go zones” rhetoric, CNN itself had spent months reporting that there were, indeed, such things as “no-go zones” in France.

“A search through Nexis archives finds that CNN traded in just the sort of ‘no-go zone’ that popped up on Fox News in the days after the Jan. 7 massacre at the offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine,” Wemple wrote on January 20.

Liar in Chief: Seconds After Obama Pleaded for ‘Bipartisanship’ in SOTU He Attacks GOP

President Obama couldn’t have proved his hypocrisy better at this year’s State of the Union speech than when he called for bipartisanship and reaching across the aisle but only seconds later slammed Republicans as working to take the vote away from people and taunting them with “I won.”

About halfway through his Santa Claus of the Union speech, President Obama once again loosed his tired claim that he is interested in the ideas Republicans have. He once again lied about how he is ready to leave partisan politics behind and is ready to reach across the aisle. This year he had a new catch phrase for it saying several times that we need “a better politics,” one where both parties work together.

But only seconds after he made that call he went on to claim that Republicans are trying to take the vote away from people, and taunted the GOP that “I won” two elections.

Obama’s hypocritical call for “A better politics” was something he described as, “one where we appeal to each other’s basic decency instead of our basest fears.”

The folks at the Grabien video service has taken the time to track all Obama’s promises made during his past State of the Union speeches and found that 112 of his promises have gone unkept.

From 2009 to 2014, Obama has made scores of promises at his SOTU blatherings, but few of his promises have been fulfilled.

In fact, Obama has the worst record of getting what he wants at the SOTU since Gerald Ford!

Grabien didn’t just create a montage video of the failed promises, but they also took the time to write them all out.

Attny Gen Eric Holder Finally Did Something Right, Halts Local Cops from Using Asset Seizure Laws

-By Warner Todd Huston

Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, has been the single worst AG in American history. His every move has been about politics, not justice, he has abused his position of authority to punish Obama’s political enemies and has forcefully advanced an extremist left-wing agenda. But finally, as he has one foot out the door, Eric Holder has done something right. He’s put an end to local police using federal law to seize property.

The single biggest misdeed perpetrated by police forces across the nation has been the outright theft under color of law of the property of citizens cops claim are suspects in some crime, real or imaginary. This law is entirely un-American as it declares all suspects guilty before a trial is even scheduled.

The civil asset forfeiture program called Equitable Sharing was initially meant as a way to instantly seize the assets and property of drug dealers to prevent them from shifting or hiding drug income from investigators as any arrest wound its way slowly through the criminal justice system.

But, this sweeping power proved to be too much of a temptation for agencies that hungered for money in an era when politicians have been cutting budgets from coast to coast.

Obama’s New Food Czar Wants Gov’t To Decide What You Are Allowed to Eat

Like all extreme socialists, Obama’s new food czar thinks that government should completely control all aspects of food from its production and is dissemination, even to what is allowed to be advertised and what you are allowed to eat.

Recently the Obama’s personal chef, Sam Kass, resigned his position and left the White House. Kass was not just a chef, though. He was also the White House’s senior adviser for nutrition policy. On top of that he the director of Mrs. Obama’s anti-childhood obesity campaign, “Let’s Move.”

So, Obama had several slots to fill at once with his new food czar. So, he and Michelle have picked one Debra Eschmeyer to take on the role of director of “Let’s Move.”

Eschmeyer, who founded the FoodCorps service program that was designed to teach school cafeteria workers about nutrition, calls herself a “food justice activist.” She recently explained what she means by that title.

“I was an editor of [the book] Food Justice so I spent several years thinking about the definition,” she said. “Food justice seeks to ensure that the benefits and risks of where, what, and how food is grown, produced, transported, distributed, accessed, and eaten are shared fairly.”

University Proves That Radical Feminists Are About the Fights, Not The Rights

January 17, 2015 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Ethics, Feminism, Liberals, Massachusetts, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Feminist extremists at the all female Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts have forced the cancellation of the absurdist play “The Vagina Monologues” because it isn’t feminist enough. That’s right, the play once hailed as the height of feminist expression is now deemed not feminist enough.

The thing about a civil rights movement is that it often ends up being more interested in the perpetual fight than in the actual achievement of any rights. Such “movements” often end up devaluing actual achievements by acting as if nothing has changed even after they’ve achieved staggering success.

We see this in nearly every rights movement in America. Take black civil rights, for instance. This country has progressed from a country where blacks were held in bondage, to one where they were free but had few rights, to today where blacks are 100 percent equal in every way with the rest of civil society. And yet, despite the amazing positive changes for African Americans, today we have charlatans like Al $harpton and Je$$e Jack$on who traipse about the country stirring race hate and claiming that no progress has been made despite the blatantly obvious facts to the contrary.

This loathsome tendency to imagine that no progress has been made in spite of reality is also a chief feature of the feminist movement and this business at the all-female Mount Holyoke College is a perfect example of that.

Trans Community Slams Batgirl Comic as ‘Transphobic’

January 16, 2015 | Filed Under Books, Comic Books, Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Ethics, Feminism, Gays, Gender, Liberals, Magazines, Progressives, Sex Offenders/Rape, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Last month the trans community attacked the DC Comics series Batgirl for supposedly ruining its year and a half-long effort to foster a “trans positive momentum.” The charge by the trans community was that the Batgirl character acted in a “transmisogynistic” manner by not identifying as a woman a male tans character who presented as a woman. Instead, Batgirl called the character a man despite that the character identifies as a woman.

For those unaware, for much of the last two years DC Comics has been retooling the Batgirl character as a gay friendly, trans friendly, and Muslim friendly comic book. Early in 2013, for instance, Batgirl’s alter ego Barbara Gordon moved in with a bisexual character named Alysia Yeoh.

Yeoh was presented as an Occupy Wall Street-styled female activist, bartender and fine artist. She was of Singaporean descent and sported an undisclosed secret that she later revealed. Ultimately this character told Gordon that she is really a he and bisexual as well.

Barbara Gordon also became friendly with a Muslim girl named Nadimah who along with her brother Qadir work in the robotics department of the school that Gordon attends.

DC has been selling this re-tolled Batgirl as a book that should appeal to “young female readers.” In other words, they want to inculcate support for gays, transvestites, and Muslims in young, female readers.

Oxford University Press Bows to Radical Muslims, Bans Mention of Pork and Pigs in Books

In yet another example of the west fecklessly abandoning its own principles to placate murderous Muslim extremists, England’s Oxford University Press, one of the largest publishers of educational material in the world, has decided to force writers to stop mentioning pigs and pork in their work to “avoid offending Muslims.”

The publisher recently sent a memo to its authors warning them to avoid mentioning pigs or “anything else which could be perceived as pork” to avoid offending Muslims. They also threw in “Jews” to make it look like they are trying to be sensitive to Jews, too. But since Jews have no history of murdering 12 newspaper employees for “offending” them, this is clearly just an attempt to squirm out of being tarred as Muslim apologists.

The news of this idiotic move was revealed on BBC’s Radio 4 earlier this week. The International Business Times’ Ewan Palmer reported the segment.

Presenter Jim Naughtie said: “I’ve got a letter here that was sent out by OUP to an author doing something for young people.

Once again we see that Obama and his ilk are putting us in danger by refusing to understand the scope of the threat confronting not only the USA but all of western civilization. In a new interview a State Department spokesperson foolishly said that we are “at war” with people who kill “in the name of a variety of causes.” Uh, no, we are at war with people who kill in the name of Islam. There is no “variety” to the cause of world wide terror.

There isn’t any “variety of causes” spawning world wide terrorism. It is Islam alone that is responsible for this. Yet here we have the dimwitted Marie Harf of Obama’s Dept. of State claiming that terror from a “variety” of ideologies is being perpetrated. This is simply untrue.

Clueless: Obama to Fight Against ‘Violent Extremism,’ Not Islamic Terror

Obama refuses to identify what we really face in radical Islam and his newest, time-wasting “summit” is yet another example of that. With his announcement the president said that his summit will explore ways to oppose “violent extremism” as if that “extremism” is divorced from Islam.

In fact, it’s worse than merely using a euphemism in place of “Islam.” In the announcement Obama’s surrogate Attorney General Eric Holder said he intends to find ways to fight “violent extremism around the world” as if there were various forms of “violent extremism” troubling the world when, in fact, it is only Islam that is troubling the world.

Holder clarified this further on ABC over the weekend saying that that the west needs to find “better ways to counter violent extremism.”

Obama Helping to Ban Historical Reenactments of 1889 Land Rush in Oklahoma Because it’s ‘Racist’

Once again the far, far leftists that infest our schools are making to destroy the teaching of American history. This time it is in Oklahoma, home to the 1889 “Land Rush” that helped settle the great western region of the country. The un-American leftists that run Oklahoma’s schools now want to excise the teaching of the Land Rush history in schools because it’s “racist.” And the Obama administration is also behind it.

The 1889 Land Rush is a key part of Oklahoma history and is one of the things it is most known for. If you are a little shaky on the history, in 1889 Oklahoma was still thought of as “Indian Territory” and few white settlements existed there. But in 1889 the government opened a few large sections of the soon-to-be state and after setting a day when those areas would be open for purchase, a race of sorts began to fill the territory with new settlers seeking land for homes, businesses and towns. It was quite a national spectacle at the time and is an important part of the state’s history.

So, Let Me Get This Straight, Liberals: All Men are Rapists, But NOT All Muslims are Responsible for Terrorism?

Liberals love to speak in absolutes, except when they don’t. Take the so-called “rape culture” discussion that the left has indulged over the last five months or so. In that discussion, all men are assumed rapists whether they’ve committed such a crime–or even dreamed of it–or not. Yet now, after two Muslim terrorists have killed a dozen newspaper staffers in France, these same liberals are warning against anyone saying that “all Muslims” are terrorists.

For the better part of the last year the left has been all weweed up about the supposed “epidemic” of rape on the campuses of our colleges and universities. The left’s desire to make this false charge a “fact” grew to such a fever pitch that they swooned when music magazine Rolling Stone told the blockbuster story of a female student who was brutally raped by members of a fraternity.

Of course, like much of the left’s claims about rape on campus, the Rolling Stone story turned out to be a complete fabrication, false from start to finish. There was no rape. On top of that, the claims that women are more likely to be raped at colleges than outside them is also false.

And yet, we get this base assumption from the left that all men are rapists. In fact, the meme has become so entrenched that liberals and feminists have been fighting back hard against the backlash narrative that “men are rapists, but not all men are rapists.” They want people to stop saying “not all men.”

Illegal Alien Activists in California One Step Away from French Newspaper Terrorists

With their vandalism of offices of the Santa Barbara News-Press this week, activists for illegal immigrants in California have proven themselves to be but a single step away from being just like the terrorists who killed 12 members of a French newspaper.

The media has been filled with news of the attack by Muslim terrorists on the offices of the left-wing French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in which 12 staffers of the paper were killed. The Muslims attacked the paper and murdered the publication’s staffers because the Muslims felt that the paper had committed blasphemy against Islam.

Now, a newspaper in California has been attacked by illegal alien activists because it dares to use the word “illegal” to describe the criminals who have broken our laws to come into the United States.

Every single time some mass shooting or criminal action takes place in the USA the media and Democrats stampede for the TV cameras to blame conservatives for the outrage. So, where are the those blaming liberalism for the murderous terror attack on the left-wing newspaper in France?

I was reminded by my friend Erik that in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 President Bill Clinton and the whole of his lapdog media claimed that the bombing was a result of the “right-wing militia” movement spurred on by evil conservative talk radio and Christianity.

Of course, it turned out that the bombers were loners who were not connected to any group and neither had any connection whatever to any religion, much less Christianity.

See Also:

Even as late as 2011 The New York Times blamed a massacre perpetrated by a Muslim extremist in Norway on American conservatives and illegitimately linked it to the Oklahoma City bombing.

The Oklahoma City bombing is far from the only time American liberals blamed some crime or another on conservatives.

Once again the world is given an example of terrorism committed in the name of Islam and once again foolish westerners race to absolve Islam for the murderous assault. For instance, before the smoke had cleared in the assault on the French magazine publisher, the Democrat’s spokesman, Howard Dean, insisted that the murderers aren’t really Muslims.

Dean, a former Vermont Governor and the recent Democrat National Committee Chairman, appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” only hours after the deadly attacks in France on the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. In his comments, Dean insisted that the murderers aren’t Muslim.

John Boehner Re-Elected House Speaker Despite Conservative Revolt

Well, folks, it’ll be business as usual in Washington DC with the re-election of Ohio’s establishment-pushing Congressman John Boehner to the Speaker’s chair.

To defeat Boehner conservatives needed 29 votes against him. And, while he did suffer rejection by 25 of his fellows, it wasn’t enough of a rejection for him to be replaced.

This is still a bit of a rebuke of the long standing Speaker, though. If he were a strong speaker that had the full support of his caucus he would not have lost 25 votes! This is a rebuke despite that it is likely that Boehner will carry on without taking any mind to the rebuke.

Still, don’t expect the GOP to actually realize that it won in a landslide in last November’s election. Expect the GOP to throw away its advantage and to bend over backwards for Obama offering only token resistance.

Sad to say, the GOP will stay Obama’s handmaiden with the re-election of weakling John Boehner to the Speaker’s chair.

So look for full support for amnesty and Obamacare coming from the House of Representatives.

According to a new investigative article, Al Sharpton has spent years shaking down corporations essentially for protection money supplied to him so that he would avoid calling them “racists,” or setting up boycotts, and creating uncomfortable public relations nightmares.

An extensive piece in the New York Post on Sunday traced Sharpton’s practice of taking money in exchange for his silence. The MSNBC host, the Post said, has taken millions not to attack corporations for their purported racism.

“Al Sharpton has enriched himself and NAN for years by threatening companies with bad publicity if they didn’t come to terms with him,” Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal Policy Center (NLPC) told the paper. “Put simply, Sharpton specializes in shakedowns.”

Only a few weeks ago, the National Legal & Policy Center published an open letter to Walmart asking the nation’s largest retailer to stop funding Sharpton’s National Action Network.

Differences Between Civil Rights Movement of 1963 and Today’s Illicit Nonsense is Stark

Comparing the wholly American and sensible demands issued by the real civil rights movement during the event that saw Martin Luther King deliver his “Dream” speech in August of 1963 to the mishmash of self aggrandizing nonsense belched forth by today’s “BlackLivesMatter “movement” reveals a startling difference and exposes today’s protesters to be disjointed, illogical, filled and with race-hate not to mention insensate and childish.

When King mounted the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in that great American moment to begin to change forever how Americans treated its black citizens he didn’t do so alone. He stepped out to give his soaring “I Have a Dream” speech backed by hundreds of key members of the burgeoning civil rights movement, organizers who themselves were backed by hundreds of thousands of Americans, black and white, spread all across the country.

Before that great rally in Washington in 1963, the civil rights movement had already coalesced into a concerted effort replete with demands that they hoped would bring relief to millions of Americans yearning to be as free as the rest of the country.

So, you thought the Lord God Obama had given you some “free” healthcare, did you? You’ve happily applied for and used his subsidies all last year because that clunky, constantly crashing Obamacare website said you could, eh? Well, guess what? Come April 15 you’ll probably owe a whopping new tax bill to the IRS because, as it turns out, you didn’t really deserve the subsidy you got. Sucks, doesn’t it?

The government reports that nearly 7 million Americans took advantage of the subsidies they were offered on the Obamacare exchange websites, subsidies that helped them cut down on the costs of the newly mandated Obamacare healthcare policies.

But now, according to tax preparation company H&R Block, as many as 4 million subsidy users might discover that in fact they made too much money to have been allowed to get the subsidy and at tax time the IRS will demand that they pay the money back.

Back in May a father upset that his 14-year-old daughter was given a sexually explicit reading assignment at school was arrested for daring to confront the school board over the book. Now, the father’s case has been dismissed by a judge who was shocked at the arrest and said it was a “chilling” example of the unconstitutional quashing of the father’s right of free speech.

On May 6, parent William Baer attended a school board meeting in Gilford, New Hampshire where he expressed his unhappiness that his 14-year-old daughter was assigned the book “Nineteen Minutes,” a book that contains sexually explicit and violent content.

In one part of the book, for example, a teenaged girl is raped by a drunken boy. The violence and the explicit nature of the passage made the father question the assignment.

I have been watching all this hullabaloo over whether or not Representative Steve Scalise (R, LA) is a closet white supremacist because he spoke one time to a group connected to notorious KKK member David Duke. Now, I am not a Scalise fan because he isn’t as conservative as I’d like, but in the end I have come down on his side. So, leave Steve Scalise alone, will you?

Scalise, the third in line of the GOP House leadership, got himself in trouble at the end of December when it got out in the media that back in 2002 he had given a speech to a gathering of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO). [Ed to add:or did he even do so?] While the name of the group sounds innocuous, the fact is the group was connected to white supremacist and notorious Klan member David Duke.

In fact, Duke himself joked that they created the name to sound innocuous on purpose so that they could mask their supremacist notions.

Government Workers Should NEVER Be Allowed a Union

What are the best jobs on average in California? Apparently being a government worker. Infuriatingly, government workers live far better, have higher salaries, retire earlier and have better benefits than most in the private sector even though, like leeches, these same government workers live off the taxpayer.

The worst of all worlds for the taxpayer is a government union. Government unions do nothing whatever for the very people paying the bills. They do not improve services, they don’t professionalize workers, and they wildly grow the waste of tax dollars. Worse, government unions give public servants higher salaries, richer benefits, and earlier retirement dates than the taxpayers footing the bills.

Even the patron Saint of the liberal left, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, was adamant that government workers should never be allowed to unionize. FDR thought it was “unthinkable and intolerable” to have a government workers union.

It’s for good reason, too. Government workers do not create the profits that might help enrich benefits. Whenever government unions get raises it simply means that taxpayers have to pay more to make up the difference.

Media Bias: The Fake Kwanza Parade CBS Los Angeles ‘Covered’

December 29, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, CBS, Democrats/Leftists, Holiday, Journalism, Kwanzaa, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Last Friday the Los Angeles affiliate of CBS breathlessly covered a “Kwanza Parade” in LA as if it were a great success and a big deal. Only it was a fake parade that the “news” station purposefully misreported and pumped up as if it were some sort of “happening.”

CBS Los Angeles did a full report on this faux parade informing viewers all about the wonderful coordinators of the parade, it carefully describing the vehicles, and noted that participants rode cars and walked. There was all the news you could use in this glowing report of this wonderful, successful Kwanza parade.

It was all presented as straight new. But a few things were left out of the coverage.

You see, most parades have watchers. If a parade doesn’t have any fans that have come out to watch, it is less a parade and more a bunch of people walking down the middle of the street for no reason.

That is exactly what happened here. No one came. Not a person came out to watch this purported parade.

That’s right, these “Kwanza” people threw a parade and nobody came.

BANNED: Obama to Save You From Evil Donut Sprinkles!

December 28, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, FDA, Freedom, Government, Government Corruption, Liberals, Liberty, President, Progressives, Regulation, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

All hail President Obama, our most benevolent dictator on high. He is so wonderful to we lowly, stupid citizens that next year his FDA is going to save us all from the evils of donut sprinkles with a ban on transfats that will have an effect the nefarious product.

Yes, our great half white father in Washington is really only concerned about our wellbeing, isn’t he?

As Mike Flynn reported last week, early next year Obama’s Food and Drug Administration is set to firm up its new rules governing the evil, monstrous, highly dangerous sprinkles. And to save us from our own too-stupid selves, Obama is planning to ban the tiny, multicolored decorations.

Boehner and GOP Allowed Obama to Add thousands of New Amnesty Workers With That 2015 Budget

December 26, 2014 | Filed Under Amnesty, Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Budget, Congress, Conservatives, Democrats/Leftists, Entitlements, Ethics, GOP, Government, Government Corruption, Immigration/Immigrants, Jobs, John Boehner, Liberals, President, Progressives, Republicans, Senate, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

This is why I despise government. Every decision made in DC adds thousands of new government placemen at a cost of millions in salary and an ever expanding government. That is what happened when John Boehner did not immediately put a stop to Obama’s amnesty plans in that recently concluded budget negotiations.

One of the things that Barack Obama kicked into high gear with his illicit amnesty announcement was a government employee hiring frenzy. As The New York Times reports, as soon as GOP House Speaker John Boehner allowed Obama’s amnesty plan to keep its funding, 1,000 new federal jobs were opened up at a cost to the taxpayer of $40 million annually in salaries and benefits.

These new employees will be housed in a building in the DC environs (Crystal City, just across the river in Arlington, Virginia) that will cost taxpayers an additional $8 million in rent each year.

Left-Wing U.Va Student Not Sorry for Unjustified Vandalism

December 24, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Constitution, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Ethics, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Progressives, Rape, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

It isn’t as if we needed another example to prove that liberalism makes bad people, but this week we got a story in the Washington Times of the University of Virginia student who isn’t sorry he destroyed thousands of dollars in private property even though he discovered that he was trying to “punish” a fraternity for a rape that never happened.

This is yet another unsavory out come from the lie-filled Rolling Stone story where an agenda-driven “journalist” created a story out of whole cloth claiming that a tony fraternity on the U.Va campus gang raped a female student.

The music magazine sold the story as a gangbuster tale that somehow “proved” that women on our campuses are constantly set upon by a never-ending stream of sexual predators and that nothing is ever done about it.

But it turned out that the entire story and every last “fact” in it proved to be untrue, including the claim that woman are raped at school far more than elsewhere.
