Liberals Lose: FCC Rules That ‘Redskins’ Isn’t Profanity

Left-wing pushers of political correctness have been trying to find any legal thread to force the NFL’s Washington DC-based football team to stop using the name “Redskins,” a word that activists claim is “racist.” The left’s most recent attempt was to get the FCC to rule that “Redskins” was “profane” and so cannot be used on the air because it breaks profanity rules. But the FCC just ruled against the liberal’s effort to redefine the team name as a profanity.

Last week the FCC ruled against the liberal activist’s claims that “Redskins” was a profanity or was obscene saying that obscenity must “depict or describe sexual conduct.” The agency said that its definition of profanity is limited to “words that are sexual or excretory in nature.”

D.C. Man Who Fought Back Against Robber Now Charged With Murder

A man who escaped the attack of a robber is now being charged with murder for killing the robber during the struggle.

The media harasses Mr. Stoddard.

A tow truck driver in Washington D.C. was in his truck lot when the robber approached and when he tried to run away, he tripped and fell. It was only seconds before the robber was upon him with gun drawn.

Driver Corey Stoddard, 35, was just going about his day when scumbag Lewis Crouch, 22, decided to rob the older man. It was his last mistake.

If Congress Tells You It Will Save $$ ‘Over Ten Years’ They Are Lying

-By Warner Todd Huston

Over the last few decades, Congressmen have fallen into this scheme of telling us all that their budget deals will “save money over a ten-year period.” Don’t fall for this. It is an outright lie.

No, I am not being hyperbolic, here. The claim that any budget deal will save any money at all over five or ten-year time spans is simply an outright lie and every congressman knows it. When you hear a Congressman, Republican or Democrat, tell you this, they simply aren’t telling the truth.

In fact, it isn’t really even built into the system for one Congress to pass a budget that holds ten future Congresses to its strictures. This is why the Constitution insists that a new budget be passed every year. One Congress can only budget for itself, not any future Congresses.

We have a perfect example of this with the very budget in the news today, the Ryan/Murray budget.

In 2011 Congress agreed to a budget scheme that contained discretionary spending limits. As Sean Davis recently reported, these limits were agreed to by over 70 percent of House Republicans and signed into law by President Obama.

But, wait. Now Ryan/Murray comes along and dispenses with all those limits and hikes spending without any mind at all to the “law” enacted in 2011.

How did this happen? Because any congressional budget agreement made in 2011 has no permanent restrictions on a Congress in 20123.

D.C. To Treat Legal Gun Owners Like Criminals, Demanding FIngerprinting, Mugshots

If you are a legal gun owner with a clean record in Washington D.C., you are going to be treated like criminal anyway as the District intends to institute a new gun control measure that will require every legal gun owner to be fingerprinted, give mug shots, and have criminal background checks performed all at their own cost, too.

D.C.’s new laws are set to take effect on January 1, and would seem to be overly intrusive and unconstitutional. Residents have until December 15 to have their say on the law, but it won’t likely make much difference if every citizen in the District complained. Our rulers don’t care what we think. They know better.

Imagine if journalists were treated this way in order to observe their First Amendment rights?

Mugging Gets Thwarted by ‘NSA Intern’

-By Warner Todd Huston

So, not everyone in Washington is an evil, dark “man in black” but maybe they want to be. Reports say a DC intern thwarted a mugging in Washington D.C. this week by pretending to be an NSA intern.

Of course the “thwarter” was the victim in this case. And a tiny one, at that. The Washington Examiner reports say that she “weighs a petite 95 pounds.”

According to reporter Tim Mak, the intern–who doesn’t work at the NSA–told the would be robber that she was a member of the NSA and if he stole her phone or hurt her in any way the NSA would track him down and… well, I guess she left the rest to the mugger’s imagination.

Woman Killed by Capitol Police After High Speed Chase Identified

-By Warner Todd Huston

The woman gunned down by Washington’s Capitol Police near the White House today has been identified. Her name was Miriam Carey and she reportedly has a history of mental problems.

Miriam Carey–who formerly lived in Brooklyn and lately in Stamford, CT–worked as a dental hygienist in the Connecticut prison system.

Apparently Carey, 34, had a history of mental illness. The woman’s mother said she was suffering from postpartum depression.

At about 2PM EST, Carey began an argument with Capitol Police on the streets near the White House. The argument escalated quickly and Carey took off and began to drive her car erratically with the police in hot pursuit.

It is beginning to look like the woman who was driving the car outside the White House today lost her sanity as the Capitol Police swarmed around her. In this startling video, she starts recklessly driving as the police all draw guns and try to surround her car.

She drives in circles for a while but is eventually shot up by police (not seen in the video).

Capitol Police surround the woman’s vehicle, guns drawn

The woman, thus far unidentified, had her child in the car with her when she was ultimately killed by police.

The child was unharmed in the fracas.

It is also reported that a Secret Service vehicle slammed into a pylon and over turned during the chase.

It is appearing more and more that most of the damage and all the gun shots were unleashed by the police themselves.

Are we seeing, perhaps, some “over exuberance” by the police?

Moderate Republicans Finally Found Someone They Will Fight… Other Republicans

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Republican establishment led by such folks as Senators Mitch McConnell and John McCain don’t want to fight the Democrats. But after this latest Obamacare funding fight, we have discovered that there is a side they will attack: other Republicans.

Those Republicans who voted “yes” on Friday’s cloture vote in the Senate knowingly voted in favor of funding Obamacare. There is no other way around that simple truth.

There was absolutely no doubt that a “yes” vote would give Democrat leader Harry Reid the power to remove all the features that the House put in the budget bill that would defund Obamacare. GOP “yes” voters knew this without doubt. And, true to that assumption, only minutes after the DR was passed with Republican assistance, Reid did just that. He stripped out all aspect of defunding from the CR budget bill.

Yet, twenty-five Republicans voted “yes,” anyway.

Even while these RINO senators were turning tail and running from the fight against Obamacare and refusing to fight the Democrats, they did find a reason to attack someone. They attacked Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and all conservatives that want to be rid of Obamacare.

Navy Yard Murderer Had Growing Sense of Entitlement, Dissatisfaction With America

September 22, 2013 | Filed Under Crime, Warner Todd Huston, Washington D.C. | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The people that were closest to Navy Yard killer Aaron Alexis have revealed several details about the last few years of his life, such details as his increasing dissatisfaction with America and a growing sense of entitlement, a feeling that people owed him something that he wasn’t getting.

Kristi Suthamtewkal, a woman who, along with her husband, gave Alexis a room to live in, reports that she watched as the killer went from being a relatively happy man to a brooding man who was “ready to move out of the country” over his disenchantment with his lot in the United States.

Kristi and her husband Oui, gave Alexis a room in their home in exchange for his work at their Thai restaurant in Fort Worth, Texas. Alexis lived there until July of 2013 when, after a short period, he left for the east coast eventually landing a job with an IT company that stationed him at the Washington Navy Yard.

The Suthamtewkals say that Alexis was a nice fellow for most of the time they knew him. Alexis even began to practice Buddhism with Oui. But the murderer’s sunny demeanor began to change in November of 2012 after he returned home from a contract job in Japan.

Don’t believe the media or the extremists in the Democrat Party when they say that the Republicans in the House of Representatives just voted to “shutdown government.” They did not. In fact, House Republicans just voted to fund every single thing government does… EXCEPT the ruinous government take over of our healthcare system called Obamacare.

Also don’t just accept the far left’s claim that this is a waste of time because the Senate won’t agree to the vote and it will just die unaccepted. In fact, this is where you step in by calling your Senators to tell them to join the House in defunding Obamacare.

Delusional DC Rep Claims No Terrorism in Navy Yard Shooting, Says DC Safest City in the USA?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Eleanor Norton Holmes is the sole Representative of the District of Columbia in Congress and she is clearly delusional when she says the Navy Yard shooting wasn’t “terrorism.” But it got worse when she then followed that up saying that D.C is one of the safest cities in the USA despite that it has such a high crime/murder rate.

As the attack by the killer, the mentally unstable Aaron Alexis, ended, Norton appeared on television in DC proclaiming that this attack wasn’t “terrorism.”

“There is no indication this was a terrorist event,” Holmes said. “But I hope we all understand that with all these guns loose in the society, it doesn’t take a terrorist to do what was done here today.”

Of course it was terrorism. It wasn’t Islamofascist terror, mind you, but all mass shootings are terrorism.

Norton then went on to laughably claim that Washington D.C. is the safest city in America. No, really. She did…

The fact is that D.C. has a very high crime rate. The capitol city is in the top 25 most dangerous cities in America.

This woman needs to get back on her meds.

MAJOR FAIL: Million Muslim March Draws Only a Few Hundred

We’ve been keeping an eye on the so-called Million Muslim March that was planned for today, the 12th anniversary of the attacks by Muslims on the USA on Sept. 11, 2001. Well, we can all laugh at them now as it looks like the march garnered a few hundred thousand less than the “million” Muslims they planned on hosting. In fact, only a handful bothered to show up.

The event seems to have garnered only about a hundred people which is a teeeny, tiny bit less than the “hundreds of thousands” that DC residents were warned were on the way to the nation’s capitol.

Amusingly, after a lot of backlash against their million terror-supporter march, the event coordinators tried a last minute renaming of the event. They decided to re-brand it the “Million American March Against Fear.”

D.C. Denies Patriotic Bikers Permit to Rally on Sept. 11, But Allows Muslims to March

We reported about the story weeks ago about the planned Sept. 11 Million Muslim March on Washington DC. Then there was a response to that rally that was planned by patriotic bikers intending to get two million bikers to Washington. Well, now a new wrinkle to the story is out with the city of Washington DC deciding to deny the bikers a permit to do a no-stop ride through even as they allow the terror-approver’s march to take place.

The much criticized Million Muslim March is being planned by a group calling itself the American Muslim Political Action Committee and is nothing less than an effort to stick a terror-supporting finger in American’s collective eye. There is no possible reason to hold a Muslim-supporting event on the very day their cohorts murdered thousands of Americans on Sept. 11, 2001. No other reason unless they want to rub America’s nose in that act of terror.

A Muslim group planning a “million Muslim march” to be held on the 12th anniversary of the terror attacks that brought down the World Trade Center in 2001 is being criticized for picking that day for their event.

On August 11, I reported on the march being planned by the Muslim advocacy group named the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) and ourselves noted that it is little else but a finger in American’s eyes. Now others are echoing that sentiment.

Recently on Fox News, Doctor Zudhi Jasser, president of the Islamic Forum for Democracy, criticized the picking of the very day that Muslims killed over three thousand Americans.

“They’re basically a bunch of ‘truthers’ who think that America’s to blame for everything,” Jasser said. He went on to say that the Anti-Defamation League has identified some of the leaders of the march as “being virulent, anti-Semites who think 9/11 was a conspiracy theory.”

A Planned ‘Million Muslim March’ Set for Sept. 11, 2013

In an effort to stick their finger in America’s eye, a Muslim group is planning a “million Muslim march” on the very day their cohorts murdered over 3,000 Americans in 2001. This is called gall.

The march is being planned by the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) and is to be held on September 11, 2013 in Washington D.C. The march is meant to “demand that our civil rights be protected by our government.”

To say their rights haven’t been protected is, of course, an absurd claim. Muslims in the USA are not being systematically denied their “civil rights.” Any claims that Muslims are being oppressed in the U.S. is a laughable fiction.

On its website, the group is “demanding” that Obama bow to their wishes.

Pro-Life Students Compared to White Supremacists at Johns Hopkins University

In March, the pro-life student group Voice For Live was denied the status of official student club by the Student Government Association at Johns Hopkins University. And even as VFL was compared to white supremacists, racists, and deemed undesirable, the SGA approved a new group called Students for Justice in Palestine despite that the latter group has a history of anti-Semitism and campus disruption.

The SGA (SGA) voted on March 12 to deny Voice For Life (VFL )the right to become an officially sanctioned club. The vote against VFL was later upheld by the SGA senate.

To explain its decision, the SGA claimed that the pro-life group’s national website is “offensive” because one of its links takes visitors to the website for Bio-Ethical Reform. The SGA also claimed that because the pro-life group engages in sidewalk counseling at a Baltimore abortion facility, that “clearly violates the JHU Harassment and Code of Conduct policies.”

President of Students for Life of America Kristen Hawkins told Fox News that they were shocked to be denied club status.

“We were pretty shocked when the students showed their bias toward the pro-life students,” Hawkins said.

The wide ranging gun ban bill introduced by Senator Diane Feinstein (D, CA) could be voted out of committee and passed on to the full Senate as early as Thursday.

A schedule posted for the upcoming February 28 executive business meeting shows the Senate Judiciary Committee intends to discuss Feinstein’s and three other gun control bills, though the eight Republican members of the committee have the option to push the meeting off for another week.

The Feinstein bill bans up to 160 specifically named firearms but might have an uphill battle in the Senate as even some Democrat Senators have said it goes too far by banning too many firearms.

Less than a month ago Senate Democrat majority leader Harry Reid (D, NV) shied from supporting Feinstein’s bill directly, though he praised her “enthusiasm” for her gun banning bill.

Rapper Lupe Fiasco lived down to his name at a recent corporate-sponsored inauguration party in Washington D.C. when he was thrown off the stage by the hosts for going on a tirade against President Obama, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck, audience members said.

During one of his “songs” the rapper informed the audience that he didn’t vote for President Obama and told them why, saying, “…and these same people supposedly telling us the truth. Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist, Gaza strip was getting bombed. Obama didn’t say sh*t. That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either. I’m part of the problem, my problem is I’m peaceful.”

It wasn’t long before black-suited security guards mounted the stage and swept the rapper off, shutting down the concert.

Josh Rogin, a writer for Foreign Policy magazine, was in the audience and tweeted as the incident played out. In one Tweet, Rogin reported, “Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go.”

But oddly, the four Democrats shown at the top steps in the back of the group are not really in the photo. The images of the four were photoshopped into the picture and weren’t present when the group photo was taken. The missing four were added later by Pelosi’s computer-wielding staffers.

U.S. Already Hitting Debt Ceiling on Monday?

-By Warner Todd Huston

U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is warning Congress that the U.S. is on the cusp of hitting the debt ceiling yet again, maybe as soon as Monday.

Geithner said that the Treasury Dept. will be taking some “extraordinary measures” to prevent borrowing from exceeding the previous debt ceiling limit, measures such as a temporary halt of the reinvestment of federal workers’ retirement account contributions.

This, along with other measures might save the government $200 billion as the debt limit approaches to just under $95 billion below the $16.394 trillion debt ceiling limit.

A major problem with these “extraordinary measures” is that no one knows what effects the fiscal cliff may have on them. The biggest unknown is what effect new tax rules will have on the situation.

The story of David Gregory’s Meet the Press rifle magazine stunt is getting a bit more complicated. A new report says that NBC was actually told that waiving the 30-round magazine on TV would not be against the law.

The report says that law enforcement officials at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF) were contacted by staffers from Meet the Press asking whether or not using the 30-round rifle magazine on the air, in the Washington D.C. studios, would be a violation of the law.

After the inquiry by NBC, the ATF contacted the D.C. police and report that the police told them that as long as the rifle magazine was empty, it would not be a violation of the city’s strict gun-ban laws.

D.C. police, however, are now saying quite then opposite.

While attacking National Rifle Association President Wayne La Pierre on NBC’s Meet the Press this weekend, host David Gregory actually violated gun laws in the city where he broadcasts.

During the show, Gregory waved around a 30-round magazine for what he claimed is an AR-15 rifle. But since Meet the Press is taped in NBC’s Washington D.C. studios this is actually a violation of the city’s strict gun laws.

Washington D.C. specifically bans the very ammunition magazine that Gregory bandied about during his discussion.

DC High Capacity Ammunition Magazines – D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01 (my bold)

(b) No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. For the purposes of this subsection, the term large capacity ammunition feeding device means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The term large capacity ammunition feeding device shall not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.

Penalties include “a maximum fine of $1000 and/or up to a year imprisonment.”

Amid turmoil within its own ranks over its new CEO, The New York Times found itself looking from without and scolding the leadership of another major newspaper characterizing that paper’s chief as incompetent and claiming that she had “faltered anew.”

On November 18, NYT media critic David Carr went after Katharine Weymouth, The Washington Post’s publisher, for a meeting announcing a change in her Paper’s executive editor in what was, perhaps, a bit of an ungracious manner.

Weymouth’s meeting was called to announce that Post executive editor Marcus Brauchli was leaving and being replaced by Marty Barton, recently the editor of The Boston Globe.

There has been some intrigue between Brauchli and Weymouth, granted, and Weymouth has been at the center of some aborted attempts to grow her paper. But for the media critic of one paper to attack the leadership of another paper is reminiscent of the old days of newspaper wars, something not seen in modern times.

Mr. Carr thought the change in editors signaled “an inopportune time for The Post to stumble.”

NY Times: Family Research. Council Shooting POSSIBLY Driven by Politics?

-By Warner Todd Huston

The New York Times finally deigned to consider the motive of the domestic terrorist that shot up the Family Research Council earlier this week and in its wisdom it has decided that maybe, just maybe, there is a long shot, outside chance that the shooter could “possibly” have been motivated by “politics” with his murderous rage. Yes, they actually said “possibly.”

The Times’ headline reads, “Family Research Council Shooting Possibly Driven by Politics,” and the first paragraph immediately makes the lie to that less than ironic take on the facts.

A Virginia man charged with shooting a security guard at the headquarters of a prominent conservative organization told the guard “words to the effect of ‘I don’t like your politics,'” according to an affidavit filed in the case on Thursday.

How is it that a headline can cast a doubtful “possibly” while the first paragraph states directly that the shooter didn’t like the FRC’s politics is a conundrum for the ages, indeed.

Wall Street Journal writer John Fund, famous for his knowledge and reportage on vote fraud. Anita MonCrief, famous for once being a member of the notorious group ACORN and later a whistleblower on its fraud, and videographer and investigative journalist (or guerilla journalist as some may say) James O’Keefe, famous for really being a pain in the left’s reared.

Videographer James O’Keefe and Author and Journalist John Fund
