Latest threat to mankind? Gendering your pet

Freaking Feminists!

Via Moonbattery

From the feminist revolutionaries at Medusa Magazine:

Pets cannot speak for themselves. They cannot tell you that they are being misgendered. It’s important not to make assumptions about what gender your animal is based off of its sex.

Hold on, it gets even crazier:

Sex and gender are separate things and are in no way intertwined. The sex of your pet is irrelevant. The only time you need to concern yourself with the sex of your pet is when you spay or neuter it (and this begs the question of whether or not we should perform operations on our pets without their consent). Animals can have diverse genders just like humans, and they can have diverse sexualities also.

Owners are advised to give their pets gender-neutral names and use gender-neutral pronouns. You wouldn’t want to offend your pet, which might be a trans-pet.

Also, it’s an important way to practice getting rid of gender norms all together [sic].

Good Freaking Grief! What type of loon thinks up this stuff??

Virginia Representative Brat calls CNN/Dems over Trump bashing

Collusion, collusion, collusion. That is all we hear, but, as Brat points out is whether or not a crime was committed is the important thing. We know the media is eager to get Trump on something, anything. We know that Democrats are using these stories/accusations/hyperventilating to deter the administration’s agenda. Could the president handle some of this better? Yes, of course. Should President use Twitter in a better way? Yep he could, and should. 

As already stated, most of the “Russia hacked the election” narrative is baloney. It is a nothing burger with extra nothing! The Republicans should, in my view, let the Democrats wail and whine. Republicans have the majority in both houses, use them! Scrap the filibuster, stop letting Chucky Schumer deter the agenda. Democrats do not play nice, why should Republicans?  Repeal ObamaCare rather than trying to keep most of it, get meaningful tax reform done, address the budget. And, if Democrats wish to help in any of those processes great. If not, then make damn sure to let the American people see who the party of no is. If the Democrats want to hold meaningless hearings, let them! Stop playing the Democrat’s game of delay, delay, and delay. In short lead!

The American people have given the GOP a majority of governorships. They have voted overwhelmingly for GOP majorities in legislatures across the nation. They voted for a Republican majority in the House, and in the Senate. They elected a Republican president. Given these facts Republicans ought to be able to see the writing on the wall. Americans gave the GOP a to do list. Now the GOP needs to start checking off items on that list!

I’m a Victim, He’s a Victim, She’s a Victim, Wouldn’t You Like to be a Victim too?

As you watch this, just substitute the word victim for pepper

Why is being a victim, or at least pretending to be a victim, and telling everyone within earshot how big a victim you are, so popular with people on the left? 

If you are a person who partakes in watching, and trying to understand the Left, you have no doubt asked yourself that question. And if you are a person who does the research, and looks at stats, and simply observes people you might have come to the same conclusion I have. The vast majority of people claiming victim status are not victims or racism/sexism/Homophobia/Islamophobia/ Transphobia or any of the dozens of other “Isms” and “phobias” the left has manufactured over the last thirty years.

Victim hood, and the selling of victim hood has become an industry of sorts. People like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and many other leftist activists have found that if they can convince a certain demographic, be it gender, racial, religious, sexual orientation, or socio-economic, that everything about them is defined by their “identity”, they can then convince that same group that they are victims. Victims who can only be helped by the very people, or groups that have convinced them of their victim status to begin with.

Once they have created enough “victims” They may then begin profiting in one way or another, from keeping those victims perpetually aggrieved, and angry. They are, in a way the slave masters of the 21st century. They shackle people with their “identity”, and then with a feeling of helplessness and  victimhood. They then use their power to get elected, sell books, raise donations, or gain influence or power, in short, it is all about the Benjamins, not helping anyone. If they really wished to help they would shut up, and start looking for actual solutions to actual problems. But, again, the Benjamins.

The victim-creating has become such a big business that now the Victim-Pimps are exploiting naive college students, attending very prestigious, and expensive universities that they too are victims. Anyone, anywhere who reads, or hears something that offends them is now a victim too. Even if you are not a victim, you will be!

If your candidate did not win an election? VICTIM!

If you pull a gun on, or try to take a police officer’s gun and get shot, VICTIM!

Someone chooses not to take part in your Gay wedding? VICTIM!

Your school invites someone with whom you disagree ideologically, to give  a speech? VICTIM!

If you are a woman Feminist and attractive, and a man notices you, VICTIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If a historical statue, monument, song, or holiday notes that at one time Southern states, for varying reasons, seceded and fought a war for that right? VICTIMS!!!!! VICTIMS EVERYWHERE!

If millions of Americans choose to legally buy, own, or carry firearms for self-defense? VICTIMS!!!!!

If you are transgender and anyone dares use a pronoun that refers to a specific gender? VICTIMS!

In fact there are so many victims now, that well, you likely are one, even if you do not feel victimized. Here are a few warning signs

If you are of any skin color, except White! YOU are a victim.

If you are of any gender, yes any of the 57, except male of course, unless of course you are Gay, or a male trying to become a female, then you are a victim.

If you are of any sexual orientation, VICTIM! Well, unless you happen to be straight of course, you sick freak!

If you are told that anyone except those that completely agree with you has a right to express their views………Oh yeah!

If you are triggered, by anything, VICTIM!

If you are a woman, well, then the Patriarchy is victimizing you every time a man looks at you, talks to you, asks you out, compliments you, treats you nicely, or well, breathes in your direction!

I wonder why anyone would want to be like these folks. Seriously (language warning) but this guy gets it!

The saddest thing is that these wannabe victims fail to see who their real victimizers are. They, for some inexplicable reason prefer pretending to be victims, than about throwing off the chains their actual victimizers are tying them down with.

Just another example of how Leftism destroys everything it touches

[VIDEO] Being a millennial: “self-responsibility is a form of cruelty

San Francisco refuses to release videos of attacks on BART riders because

Because public safety is secondary to social justice or something!

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — In the last three months, there have been at least three robberies on BART involving groups of teenagers.

“I think people are genuinely concerned — they are fearful about the stories that have come out about the recent attacks, the assaults, the thefts,” said Debora Allen, who is a member of the BART Board of Directors.

But videos of the attacks are not being released. Why?

Allen told us the agency issued an explanation for why it is being tight-lipped about the thefts.

“To release these videos would create a high level of racially insensitive commentary toward the district,” she was told. “And in addition it would create a racial bias in the riders against minorities on the trains.”

According to a memo distributed to BART Directors, the agency won’t do a press release on the June 30 theft because it was a “petty crime” that would make BART look “crime ridden.” Furthermore, it would “unfairly affect and characterize riders of color, leading to sweeping generalizations in media reports.”

There you go, another example of how deeply demented those afflicted with Racial Obsession Syndrome are. Somehow it is better, to them, to protect thugs than to protect citizens. How soon do we see certain crimes being openly excused or simply ignored for the same type of flawed logic?

On this edition of “How in the Hell did they get elected?”

Via Moonbattery!

One problem with placing a courthouse too close to a homeless shelter is that jurors have to wade through human excrement to get in the door. One problem with electing moonbats is that they will object to hosing the excrement away, because that would be racist:

Councilmember Larry Gossett said he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.

Good Freaking Grief! This has to be parody right? Oh, wait, I forgot that it is no longer possible to parody the Left!

 

The “Women’s” March does not think much of women apparently

Behind every “Progressive” movement is the ugly face of brutality, human degradation, state control, and evil. In the case of the Women’s March, that face is represented by noted bottom feeder Louis Farrakhan. Dana Loesch rips the mask off of Farrakhan and the “Women’s March”

Of course, these women know what Farrakhan is. They know what Sharpton is. They know. They do not desire freedom, or any justice. They are a collection of Leftists intent on destroying America, and individual liberty while enriching and empowering themselves. They are dividers, hate mongers, liars, and miscreants. They can paint the Women’s March any way they wish, but it, and the people behind it, are among the most intolerant and hateful souls you could ever find.

Black woman dares to question Leftism…….

The Left claims the banners of tolerance and diversity. But, what happens when anyone shows intellectual or ideological diversity? They are shunned, maligned, and brow beaten. You see, there is no tolerance on the left side of the ideological spectrum. And no tolerance either. There is only conformity to group think, or else

Hundreds Of Colorado Voters Withdraw Registrations In Wake Of Trump-Ordered Probe Of Fraudulent Voting – Breitbart

Colorado is one state that has agreed to comply with the voter fraud commission that President Donald Trump put in place with an executive order in May.

And now county clerks in that state are reporting that they’ve seen hundreds of people withdraw their voter registrations.

A spokesperson for the Denver Elections Division told a Denver media outlet that 180 people have withdrawn their registrations in the county since Monday of this week.

Illegal Alien Who Snuck Into U.S. 7 Times Was Drunk During Deadly Crash, Prosecutor Says – Fox News

An illegal immigrant who sneaked into the United States from Mexico seven times was driving drunk and speeding down a Nebraska highway when he crashed his van last week, killing a passenger sitting in the back of the vehicle, prosecutors said.

Douglas County prosecutors said in court Tuesday Nemias Garcia-Velasco, 32, was deported in 2009 and 2011 and “voluntarily returned” to Mexico five times in 2005, the Omaha World-Herald reported. He was convicted of making a false claim to U.S. citizenship in 2005.

Garcia-Velasco’s bail was set at $2 million. Prosecutor Ryan Lindberg in court on Tuesday requested a high bail for the illegal immigrant because he feared the man might flee the country – again.

“If this is someone who bonds out, I don’t think we’ll see Mr. Garcia-Velasco again,” Lindberg said.

Garcia-Velasco was speeding down an interstate in Omaha about 1 p.m. last Wednesday when he lost control of his 2001 Dodge Ram van, slamming into a guard rail before the vehicle rolled over and caught fire, officials said…

Justice Department Announces Largest Heathcare Fraud Takedown In American History – Washington Examiner

The Department of Justice on Thursday announced what Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the “largest healthcare fraud takedown operation in American history.”

By working with inner Justice Department offices and the Department of Health and Human Services, the federal government charged 412 defendants accused of defrauding taxpayers of roughly $1.3 billion. The charges included 56 doctors, Session said.

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe said at a press conference Thursday that 29 bureau field offices around the country were involved, with an assist from more than 300 agents.

“The nation is in the midst of a crisis. Opioid abuse destroys lives,” he said.

At least 120 of those charged were charged for their roles in “prescribing and distributing opioids and other dangerous narcotics.”…

“Canada Is In Serious Trouble” Again, And This Time It’s For Real – Zero Hedge

Some time ago, Deutsche Bank’s chief international economist, Torsten Slok, presented several charts which showed that “Canada is in serious trouble” mostly as a result of its overreliance on its frothy, bubbly housing sector, but also due to the fact that unlike the US, the average household had failed to reduce its debt load in time.

Additionally, he demonstrated that it was not just the mortgage-linked dangers from the housing market (and this was before Vancouver and Toronto got slammed with billions in “hot” Chinese capital inflows) as credit card loans and personal lines of credit had both surged, even as multifamily construction was at already record highs and surging, while the labor market had become particularly reliant on the assumption that the housing sector would keep growing indefinitely, suggesting that if and when the housing market took a turn for the worse, or even slowed down as expected, a major source of employment in recent years would shrink.

Fast forward to today, when the trends shown by Slok two years ago have only grown more acute, with Canada’s household debt continuing to rise, its divergence with the US never been greater…

GOP Rallies Behind Idiotic Bill – Ann Coulter

Republicans are about to do something very stupid. Using bribery, threats and cajolery, they intend to pass a catastrophically unpopular bill on a party-line vote.

GOP: Obamacare is unpopular, so let’s pass a new health care bill that’s even MORE unpopular.

Normal Person: Why would you do that?

GOP: No, you don’t understand. Obamacare is totally imploding, so if we pass this bill now, all its problems will be blamed on us!

Republicans would be better off doing nothing. They can survive the ridicule for running against Obamacare through four election cycles and then not repealing it. They cannot survive a bill that does nothing to fix the actual problems with Obamacare.

The only explanation for the GOP doing something so stupid and unpopular is that it’s all about tax cuts.

Why can’t we get it through their heads that we didn’t elect Trump to cut taxes? Forty-five percent of people don’t pay any federal income tax – and they voted for Trump!…

“We have to get it right with traditional public schools and our focus, our energy, our resources need to be on that,” Superintendent Nikolai Vitti told the Free Press.

Democrats At FEC Keep Accepting Foreign-Funded Trips – Daily Caller

Democrats on America’s top election oversight agency have regularly accepted lavish junkets funded by foreign governments and organizations.

Since 2002, the Federal Election Commission’s three Democratic members took at least 50 official trips during their combined time serving on the agency, according to documents obtained from public records and Freedom of Information Act requests. Expenses related to the trips were paid by a combination of foreign groups, governments, and by U.S. taxpayers through the agency’s own budget.

According to the records, which come from the Office of Governmental Ethics and FEC records published by The Hill’s Rudy Takala, none of the FEC’s three Republican commissioners have ever taken a single agency-related international trip while serving on the commission.

Democratic Commissioner Ellen Weintraub, who has engaged in more sponsored trips than any of her colleagues, sought last month to stoke fears over the influence that she said foreign money could have had on the 2016 election, claiming that Russia might have bought ads on Facebook aimed at influencing the American electorate…

Clint Eastwood Casts Real-Life Heroes In Next Film ‘The 15:17 To Paris’ – Variety

In an unconventional move, Clint Eastwood has tapped Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone to play themselves in his next movie, “The 15:17 to Paris.” The film will tell the story of the three Americans who stopped a terrorist on a train bound for Paris.

Jenna Fischer, Judy Greer, and Ray Corasani will also join the real-life heroes in the film. Paul-Mikel Williams, Max Ivutin, Bryce Gheisa, Cole Eichenberger, and William Jennings will play younger versions of the Sadler, Skarlatos and Stone.

Knife-Wielding Leftists Terrorize Children At Chick-Fil-A – Gateway Pundit

“They came in slicing each other’s throats, putting each other on their knees, dropping them onto the floor in front of a bunch of children,” said Crystal Valle-Najar.

Liberals love to terrorize children. They were at it again on Tuesday at a Pinellas Park, Florida, Chick Fil A fast food restaurant where a group of knife-wielding vegan protesters staged a mock slaughter of cows inside the chicken-themed restaurant while parents protected their children. The occasion was Chick Fil A’s ‘cow appreciation day’ where customers who dress as a cow are given free food.

WFLA-TV reported customers and children were alarmed by the protest.

Real-looking knives, splattered fake blood and screaming kids. It’s not the kind of scene Chick-fil-A envisioned when they kicked off “Cow Appreciation Day.”

Hundreds Of New York Cops Turn Their Backs On Sleazebag Mayor De Blasio At Funeral – The Hill

The backlash stems from rising tensions after de Blasio traveled to Germany last week to speak at a protest during the Group of 20 summit, one day after Familia was killed.

Canadian Landlord Fined $12,000 For Not Taking Shoes Off In Muslim Tenant’s Home – Fox News

A Canadian landlord who was fined $12,000 for wearing shoes in a Muslim tenant’s home said he felt “humiliated” by the harsh penalty levied by a national human rights tribunal.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun, John Alabi, 52, of Brampton, recounted how he went above and beyond trying to accommodate the Egyptian-born couple who lived in the apartment for two months – just to be slapped with a steep fine for the shoe incident.

“I go beyond all that. I just see everybody as human beings like me. That’s why I took them in,” Alabi told the Toronto Sun in May. “We got along. And then all of a sudden I’m a racist?”

The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario ordered Alabi in April to pay the tenants $6,000 each after he failed to take his shoes off in the bedroom were the couple prayed while he was showing the home to potential renters. The couple, who moved into first floor of the home in December 2014, terminated their lease on Feb. 28, 2015.

Sarin Unaccounted For At U.S. Army’s Dugway Proving Ground – Zero Hedge

Senate GOP Eyes Obamacare Repeal Vote Next Week – The Hill

A new Gallup/Sharecare poll shows that two million more Americans are without insurance this year, with the number of uninsured rising to 11.7 percent in the second quarter of 2017, up from 10.9 percent in the second quarter of 2016.

The poll stated that 10.9 percent uninsured was a record low over the period from 2008 to 2017.

The story about the poll also noted that the highest percentage of uninsured Americans was in 2013 – at 18 percent – before the Obamacare insurance exchanges opened.

However, also starting in 2014, people who did not buy health insurance faced penalties enforced by the IRS.

“Several marketplace factors could be contributing to the uptick in the uninsured rate since the second half of 2016. Rising insurance premiums could be causing some Americans to forgo insurance, especially those who fail to qualify for federal subsidies,” the pool article stated. “Furthermore, some insurance companies are leaving the ACA marketplace, and the lack of competition could be driving up the cost of plans for consumers.”…

Paste eating Joan Walsh redefines stupidity once again

This woman would lose an IQ contest to a tree stump, and lose badly H/T The Washinton Times

Ms. Trump, an unpaid adviser to her father, caused backlash this weekend after she took a seat on his behalf during a working session Saturday morning in Hamburg. Mr. Trump said he had asked his daughter to hold the seat while he attended meetings, calling the practice “very standard.”

Ms. Walsh, however, took issue with Ms. Trump wearing a “girlie” dress during the controversial moment, which was a pale pink with large bows on the sleeves.

“I don’t mean to sound sexist, it can be dangerous to comment on what women wear, but the fact that she sat in for her father in a dress that was so incredibly ornamental was such a contradiction in terms,” Ms. Walsh told MSNBC host Thomas Roberts on Sunday, in remarks first flagged by Newsbusters.

“And I think that what we see is that in patriarchal, authoritarian societies, daughters have great value — they are property,” she said. “And the message that she is sending about her own value, about her place in the White House, and about the place of women in this administration, I think, are really, pretty frightening.”

You simply cannot parody these moonbats any more. They revel in their idiocy, wearing it like a badge of honor.

WOW! Forum 7-10-17

Every week on Monday, the WoW! community and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living.  This week’s question: Will Media Outlets Like CNN Ever Practice Journalism Again?

Mike McDaniel: No. OK…back to that article I was working on…what’s that? What do I mean “No?” You want me to explain? Very well. 

The most important thing to understand about the contemporary media is they are virtually all progressives. I don’t mean center of the political road Democrats, I mean far left, pajama boy, womyn leftist/progressive/socialist/communist/antifa/BLM/Greenie/LGBTQWERTY+/open borders/Anti-America/let everybody vote early and often fanatics. In this, they have followed and mimicked the progression of the Democrat Party to the point that even the few semi-rational Democrats remaining have begun to publicly admit unless the party is somehow drug, screaming, fire bombing, property destroying, assassinating the police back toward the political center, the Democrat Party may be doomed.

Their political ideology takes on all of the characteristics of fervent religious faith. They just, for the most part, leave out God. For the contemporary Progressive, Barack Obama was the higher being, and by their association with him and their shared ideals, they too have ascended beyond the strictures of mortal existence.

Progressive ideology, ideas, programs, and yes, writings and broadcasts, cannot possibly be wrong. They are infallible, non-falsifiable. No evidence can possibly prove them wrong because they can’t be wrong. If they appear to be wrong, they’re actually right, and the appearance of error is due to factors such as:

*Conservatives are allowed to exist.

*Not enough money has been spent for the program’s magnificence to be fully manifest.

*Not enough time has passed for the program’s full effect to be felt.

*The ungrateful people haven’t had the program good and hard enough yet.

*That damned Constitution keeps getting in the way.

So when a CNN reporter reads President Trump’s speech in Poland he, by virtue of his superior, super human progressive intellect and ideology, can find racism and white nationalism lurked behind every metaphor and ready to pounce from behind every connotation. And when the First Lady of Poland shakes Melania’s Trump’s hand a few seconds before Donald Trump’s hand, she snubbed him, even though she didn’t snub him, but she snubbed him because TRUMP! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Whatta ya mean “fake news?!” Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

The media have fallen so far from ethical journalism, returning to it would require firing virtually every employee, from the head of each network to the lowliest technician, and replacing them with carefully vetted, honest, honorable and humble human beings. That can’t happen because progressive ideology can’t be wrong. Draining that particularly swamp would require the admission of error. Against their faith. Won’t happen. Can’t happen.

What might happen, if ratings dip low enough and networks start really getting hit in the pocketbook–even more than they already are–is a temporary bit of restraint that might bring networks like CNN or NBC down to 88% negative coverage of President Trump instead of 93%, but that’s about it.

Notice the NYT firing copy editors. Has anyone detected any change in the content of its coverage? The NYT’s financial straits are dire. Have they admitted, even to themselves, they’re wrong? Do they believe, for a moment, they should return to honest, balanced, non-biased journalism?

There will always be a sufficient number of Americans in Name Only to keep progressive news organs afloat at some level, thus there is no reason for any of them to significantly change their coverage. Anyone trying will be labeled an apostate, excommunicated, and symbolically killed by being denied congress with fellow elite media progressives. It’s an article of faith.

What is most amusing is the self-imagined media elite believe when the civil war they are provoking occurs, they’ll be left alone to advocate for the lions against the Christians, to cheer for the barbarians at the gate, ready to rape and kill and burn. Should that happen, by the time the barbarians breach the gates, there won’t be any remaining media elites for the pleasure of the barbarians. The Left always eats its own, and the lowly, flyover country Americans so long denigrated, insulted and abused by their media betters will, in those conditions, restrain themselves no longer. They’ll pay brief and intimate visits to their tormentors.

They’ll go down, to the last pajama boy, womyn, and transnational whatever, believing they were right. It’s an article of faith.

Don Surber: Since I asked, journalism is dead because the people who run the news organizations are short-sighted and dim-witted. The public’s trust was all they had and it was quite valuable. Newspapers were worth $1,300 a subscriber when Clinton was president. The New York Times paid $1.1 billion for the Boston Globe in 1993 — and sold it 20 years later for $70 million.

The newspaper industry is a wreck in part because of technology; instead of embracing the Internet, they fought it. Their paywalls amuse me because they are a throwback to a way of life long gone. The last time I saw a newspaper boy was in a Nintendo game.

The gravy train will soon end for cable news as cord cutters cut into their subscriber fees. Why am I paying CNN a buck a month? The network is Fake News. In the words of Nancy Sinatra last January: “That’s not true. I never said that. Why do you lie, CNN?”

Jeff Zucker and the rest see their future in niche markets, as they seek to become Daily Kos.
Jim Acosta is not a journalist but an actor — a mascot — for a Fake News organization that feeds people what they want to hear.

Can the Republic survive without them?

Maybe.

Trust God, not men — and trust men before you trust an institution.

Rob Miller: Well, I never say never. Media outlets get sold, or come under new management from time to time. I’d also say journalism isn’t entirely dead, but that it simply doesn’t exist where you’d expect to find it.

When it comes to places like CNN or similar outfits, I think it’s worth remembering a few things. The talking heads that are the on air talent or the print reporters and columnists live in a bubble.  They grew up in the same kind of neighborhoods, went to the same kind of schools and move in the same circles. They have similar beliefs and similar connections based on a shared ideology, and if they don’t they aren’t hired unless there’s a huge perceived economic benefit in doing so. I don’t see that changing, at least not for some time.

Fausta: Only if they start hiring real, independent journalists.

Patrick O’ Hannigan: I don’t think media outlets like CNN will ever practice journalism again, because they’re outlets that pay lip service to the ideal of following stories “without fear or favor,” but they can’t walk the talk about policing the establishment while accepting money and kudos from that same establishment. To the extent that real journalism — as opposed to commentary — has a future, it rests in the hands of the people on the air and on the web who are not beholden to the bi-coastal elites, and people who ferret out news because they’re curious rather than because they want to “make a difference.” I also think there has to be more to redemption, if it comes, than finding a local angle for national stories. On-air talent at local affiliates can be every bit as smug about progressive platitudes as their higher-profile colleagues with bigger expense accounts.

Doug Hagin: Only if they can remember what journalism is, and separate their ideology from their mission. That mission is to report news. That mission is to investigate, and then pass their findings along. Lots of local stations do nice jobs of doing that. But the alphabet soup of NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, etc have sacrificed their integrity in favor of their political leanings.

Just imagine what the media could do if they put as much energy into uncovering facts about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and so many other scandals as they did into finding a Reddit user to bully. Imagine!

Simply Jews: Not wanting to interfere in a US internal problem, I shall avoid answering this question, unless it’s made an international one (and why not, by the way?).

But I can tell you all an old Israeli story, about one of the ministers of finance whose name I have forgotten.

When the trade unions during his reign started demanding a five days working week, he objected, saying:

– Why are you being so extreme? Let them start with two, then move to three gradually etc…

So there…

If you think it’s absolutely unrelated to the question… oh well, I feel it is.

Dave Schuler: Let’s start by defining “ever,” as “in my lifetime.” For that the answer is “No”.

For the major media outlets to return to actual journalism they’d need to report the news in a balanced, non-agonistic fashion consistently over a period of years to regain the credibility they’ve lost. I don’t believe the present crop of editors are capable of that. It would take commitment and a generational change.

Laura Rambeau Lee: As long as progressives have control of our universities the indoctrination of our youth will continue. The “journalists” coming out of these institutions perceive and report world events through the skewed lens of identity politics and social, economic, and environmental justice. Their ability to think critically has been carefully and methodically taught out of them. This culture is promoted by outlets like CNN to the point where truth is the enemy. New media outlets such as One America News (OAN) are already attracting viewers searching for true journalism; reporters committed to telling the whole story and who respect the viewer or listener to make their own judgments based on the facts presented. Media outlets like CNN will never change, the ideology is so entrenched. They will be replaced eventually or exist only on the very fringes of the media.

Trump Warns Congress Not To Leave DC Without Repealing Obamacare – Daily Caller
.

.
President Donald Trump warned Congress early Monday morning to make sure they finalize a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare before the lawmakers leave for the August recess.

Trump tweeted that he could not imagine a scenario in which “Congress would dare to leave Washington without a beautiful new HealthCare bill fully approved and ready to go!”

Senate lawmakers return to Washington Monday after a week-long recess, with the goal of coming to a consensus on how to repeal Obamacare, but the time at home appears to have made the path forward anything but easier on Republicans.

Instead of returning to their Washington offices with a clearer sense of how to move forward, lawmakers find themselves dealing with at least one more Republican defection and a reignited, fierce debate between moderates and conservatives…

Woman Faces Probation For Groping Female Passenger During Las Vegas Flight – Law Newz

An Oregon woman faces probation for groping a female passenger on an Alaska Airlines flight. Heidi McKinney, 26, is scheduled for a sentencing hearing at U.S. District Court on Monday. She pleaded guilty in March to assault with the intent to commit a felony, although she was originally charged with third-degree sexual abuse by Multnomah County officials.

Court documents obtained by KOIN say it happened during a Las Vegas-to-Portland flight on May 10, 2016. The victim said McKinney sat down next to her, and put her hands on the victim’s chest, “allowing her hands to linger there uncomfortably.”

McKinney made unrequited small talk, asking personal questions, disrespecting how much wealth the victim seemed to have, and bragging about her own wealth. She also put her arm around the woman, and took photos of her. This was before lift-off. In the air, McKinney brought out alcohol she smuggled onto the flight. The victim turned her down, and the defendant threw it at the woman’s lap…

Study: Nearly All Recent Global Warming Is Fabricated – Breitbart

Much of recent global warming has been fabricated by climate scientists to make it look more frightening, a study has found.

The peer-reviewed study by two scientists and a veteran statistician looked at the global average temperature datasets (GAST) which are used by climate alarmists to argue that recent years have been “the hottest evah” and that the warming of the last 120 years has been dramatic and unprecedented.

What they found is that these readings are “totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.”

That is, the adjusted data used by alarmist organizations like NASA, NOAA, and the UK Met Office differs so markedly from the original raw data that it cannot be trusted…

Merkel Migrant Blowback Begins: Chechen Sharia Police Terrorize Berlin – Zero Hedge

A hundred Islamists are now openly enforcing Sharia law on the streets of Berlin, according to local police who are investigating a recent string of violent assaults in the German capital.

The self-appointed morality police involve Salafists from Chechnya, a predominantly Sunni Muslim region in Russia. The vigilantes are using threats of violence to discourage Chechen migrants from integrating into German society; they are also promoting the establishment of a parallel Islamic legal system in Germany. German authorities appear unable to stop them.

The Sharia patrol came to public light in May 2017, when Chechen Salafists released a video warning other Chechens in Germany that those who fail to comply with Islamic law and adat, a traditional Chechen code of behavior, will be killed. The video’s existence was reported by Meduza, a Russian-language independent media organization based in Latvia. The video, which circulated through WhatsApp, an online messaging service, showed a hooded man aiming a pistol at the camera. Speaking in Chechen, he declared…

Iraqi PM Declares Victory In Mosul As Army Drives ISIS Out Of City – Daily Telegraph

Dressed in the black cap and fatigues of the Iraqi counter-terrorism forces, a jubilant Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi arrived in Mosul on Sunday to declare victory over the Islamic State in the city, even as fighting continued to rout the last jihadist diehards from a sliver from the Old City.

On day 266 of fighting to recapture the city, Mr Abadi shared a photo of himself shaking the hand of an Iraqi officer as he walked on the runway of a nearby airbase.

“The commander in chief of the armed forces Haider al-Abadi arrived in the liberated city of Mosul and congratulated the heroic fighters and Iraqi people for the great victory,” his office said in a statement.

Earlier, counter-terrorism forces were pictured planting the Iraqi flag on the western bank of the Tigris River after advancing through the Old City where Isil fighters have made their last stand. It marked the end of the fight that lasted nearly nine months – longer than the Battle for Stalingrad – and put an end to the terror group’s three year rule over Iraq’s second city…

Comey’s Private Memos On Trump Conversations Contained Classified Material – The Hill

More than half of the memos former FBI Director James Comey wrote as personal recollections of his conversations with President Trump about the Russia investigation have been determined to contain classified information, according to interviews with officials familiar with the documents.

This revelation raises the possibility that Comey broke his own agency’s rules and ignored the same security protocol that he publicly criticized Hillary Clinton for in the waning days of the 2016 presidential election.

Comey testified last month he considered the memos to be personal documents and that he shared at least one of them with a friend. He asked that friend, a lawyer at Columbia University, to leak information from one memo to the news media in hopes of increasing pressure to get a special prosecutor named in the Russia case after Comey was fired as FBI director…

California Upholds ‘Right’ For Pedophiles To Marry 10-Year-Old Kids – Your News Wire

Lawmakers in California have upheld the rights for pedophiles to legally marry children as young as 10 years old, in a sick and twisted ruling.

Girls as young as ten are among over 200,000 children who were allowed to legally wed adults in the last 15 years – according to shocking new data uncovered by a Bay Area legislator:

A Bay Area legislator was shocked when he learned from a young constituent that while Californians cannot legally consent to sex until they are 18, they can – with the permission of a parent and a judge’s order – get married at any age, even if their spouse is many years older.

“I thought, that can’t be true in California,” said state Sen. Jerry Hill, a Democrat from San Mateo. “We found that it is true in California and true in many states throughout the country.”

But Hill’s resulting proposal to bar juveniles from getting hitched has been watered down after it prompted strong objections from civil rights groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union…

Bizarre Washington Post Story Tries To Blame Right-Wing Radio For Scalise Shooting – Newsbusters

The blogosphere erupted in a collective roar at Washington Post reporter Peter Holley’s bizarre attempt to blame the shooting of Rep.

Holley’s cockeyed conspiracy theory was that the shooter, James Hodgkinson, may have listened to local senior-citizen radio host Bob Romanik back in Belleville, Illinois (just east of St. Louis).

Left-Wing Columnist Suspended After Cops Release Video Proof That His Account Of ‘Scary’ Traffic Stop Was A Lie – BizPac Review

A Missouri sheriff called out a newspaper columnist for sensationalizing a routine traffic stop.

Boone County Sheriff Dwayne Carey fired back at Columbia Daily Tribune’s now suspended columnist Bill Clark after a June 30 opinion piece in which Clark declared he was lucky he didn’t “get shot” and now knew how “minority motorists” must feel when getting pulled over by police.

“I’m lucky I didn’t get shot,” Clark, an 84-year-old white man,wrote. “Sirens wailed and when I stopped, two officers were out of the sheriff’s vehicle. When I reached over to turn off the radio and then take my wallet out of my pocket to produce the driver’s license and insurance card, I realized my hands were not at the top of my steering wheel. Danger lurked and official arrogance was to follow.”

Clark claimed his life “seemed to be in danger” and that his “rear bumper full of liberal bumper stickers” and his aging car were probably a tip-off for police that he was an “aging hippie with a weed habit.”…

Leftist Media Ignoring Virginia Governor’s Role In Green Car Scandal That Fleeced Taxpayers Out Of Millions – Judicial Watch

An electric car company that folded after taking millions of taxpayer dollars was founded by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair, but the mainstream media is ignoring this pertinent fact.

The Mississippi-based company, GreenTech, shut down in January but is back in the spotlight because this week the state’s auditor demanded the firm repay $6.4 million in public funds. Only a small Richmond, Virginia newspaper prominently reported McAuliffe’s ties to the scandal, stating in the headline that “Mississippi auditor demands $6.4M repayment from McAuliffe’s former electric car company.”

Most mainstream news outlets ignored the story altogether and a few kept McAuliffe’s name out the minimal coverage.

14 Lessons For Stupid People – Patrice Lewis

As I write this, the German town of Hamburg is in chaos as 100,000 anti-capitalists (otherwise known as “stupid people”) pour in to participate in a “Welcome to Hell” protest against the G20 summit. Police have responded to the violence with water cannons and pepper spray while Hamburg residents are suffering vandalism and arson to their homes, businesses and cars by the peaceful demonstrators. Beer appears to be a popular fuel for the rioters.

As with most protests of this nature, it’s a little vague what these people find objectionable, but a few themes have emerged. Demonstrators want open borders, more wealth distribution and an end to capitalism. According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, “Protesters say the G20 has failed to solve many of the issues threatening world peace, including climate change, worsening inequality and violent conflicts” – thus accomplishing at the rally the very things they claim they’re against. (That’s why they’re known as “stupid people.”)

The arson, rioting and vandalism initiated by the protesters, doubtless to illustrate how peaceful and inclusive they are, as well as their violent opposition to violent conflicts, merely echoes similar protests that have taken place in many Western nations, especially America…

Indeed, if you caused any trouble for the commissars, a good inoculation of neuroleptics (powerful drugs used to “quiet” the symptoms of schizophrenia), forcibly administered through a tube in the nose, could do wonders in bringing your politically incorrect behavior to a halt.

Trump Labels North Korea A “Problem And Menace” At G20 Summit – Associated Press

President Donald Trump assailed North Korea as a “problem and menace” Saturday as he met with Asian allies on the sidelines of an international summit to build consensus on next steps after the North’s recent test-launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

“Something has to be done about it,” Trump said as he met with Chinese President Xi Jinping. In a separate meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump said the two were tackling “the problem and menace of North Korea.”

Abe, speaking through a translator, noted that the security situation in the Asia Pacific region has become “increasingly severe” due to North Korea’s push to develop its ballistic missile and nuclear program. Abe said he wanted to “demonstrate the robust partnership as well as the bonds” between Japan and the U.S. on the issue.

Leftist Oregon Governor To Sign Bill Providing “Free” Abortions For All – Washington Times

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said Thursday that she plans to sign a sweeping, unprecedented bill requiring insurers to provide free abortions for their customers, including illegal immigrants.

“The ability to control our bodies and make informed decisions about health are critical to providing all Oregonians the opportunity to achieve our full potential and live productive, thriving lives,” the Democratic chief executive said in an email. “Attempts to deny access to contraceptives and family planning are an attack on all Oregonians, particularly women of color, low-income and young women.”

The $10.2 million bill, which cleared the state House and Senate with no Republican votes, also comes as a badly needed boost for Planned Parenthood’s Oregon affiliate, which helped write the measure and pushed for its passage as it struggles to keep its doors open.

Democrats said the bill would ensure equal access to abortion, but several Republicans said they didn’t understand why the legislation was necessary, given that Oregon already has the least-restrictive abortion laws in the nation…

Judge Brown’s Retirement Will Let Trump Appoint Conservative To Powerful DC Circuit Court – Wall Street Journal

President Donald Trump will soon have the ability to start remaking Washington’s second-most powerful court, with the expected retirement of Judge Janice Rogers Brown from the U. S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Judge Brown, a 2005 appointee of President George W. Bush, has notified officials that she is stepping down, according to a person familiar with the matter. Judge Brown, 68 years old, didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.

It is common for federal judges to time their retirements when a president of the party who appointed them is in office. That increases the odds of a like-minded successor.

Moreover, retired federal judges frequently assume “senior status,” which allows them to maintain their salaries and continue hearing cases, with some limitations…

‘Black Lives Matter’ Leaders Sued Over Baton Rouge Police Shooting – Reuters

A police officer wounded in a shooting rampage in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, last year that left three officers dead sued Black Lives Matter movement leaders on Friday, accusing them of inciting violence that spurred the attack.

The lawsuit filed in a U.S. district court in Louisiana named DeRay McKesson and four other Black Lives Matter leaders as defendants and sought at least $75,000 in damages.

It came on the one-year anniversary of one of the deadliest days in modern U.S. history for law enforcement. On July 7, 2016, a black man angered by what he saw as deadly racial bias in U.S. policing launched a downtown Dallas sniper attack, killing five officers deployed at a protest decrying police shootings of black men.
