Blacks Get Black History Month, But Whites...

Can't have White History Month?
Neighbors Outraged Over ‘White History Month’ Sign In Flemington Deli Window

"FLEMINGTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A sign in a store window is stirring up racial tension in Flemington, New Jersey.

As WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported, the sign in the window of Jimbo’s Deli on Main Street says “Celebrate your white heritage in March. White History Month.”

“The ‘white’ had a cross. It was a cross ‘t,’ which is used by the Klu Klux Klan as a symbol, right,” said Bhakti Curtis.

Curtis, a bi-racial neighbor, said he couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He confronted the owner, Jim Boggess.

“He didn’t have a clue why I was offended and then why other people would be upset about it neither,” he said."
Well, if I'm offended that there is a Black History Month, what will they do about that? It turns out that being offended has no bearing on actual Human Rights. And it also turns out that the store's neighbors are racist bigots who can't stand free speech. Further, they are religious bigots, claiming that a cross - the symbol of Christianity - is a racial symbol (there are plenty of blacks who worship under a cross). But they are free to shop somewhere else; I wouldn't particularly care for racial/religious bigots shopping in my store, if I had a store (I don't).

U.S. millennials post ‘abysmal’ scores in tech skills test, lag behind foreign peers

"There was this test. And it was daunting. It was like the SAT or ACT -- which many American millennials are no doubt familiar with, as they are on track to be the best educated generation in history -- except this test was not about getting into college. This exam, given in 23 countries, assessed the thinking abilities and workplace skills of adults. It focused on literacy, math and technological problem-solving. The goal was to figure out how prepared people are to work in a complex, modern society.

And U.S. millennials performed horribly.

That might even be an understatement, given the extent of the American shortcomings. No matter how you sliced the data – by class, by race, by education – young Americans were laggards compared to their international peers. In every subject, U.S. millennials ranked at the bottom or very close to it, according to a new study by testing company ETS.

“We were taken aback,” said ETS researcher Anita Sands. “We tend to think millennials are really savvy in this area. But that’s not what we are seeing.”

The test is called the PIAAC test. It was developed by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, better known as the OECD. The test was meant to assess adult skill levels. It was administered worldwide to people ages 16 to 65. The results came out two years ago and barely caused a ripple. But recently ETS went back and delved into the data to look at how millennials did as a group. After all, they’re the future – and, in America, they're poised to claim the title of largest generation from the baby boomers.

U.S. millennials, defined as people 16 to 34 years old, were supposed to be different. They’re digital natives. They get it. High achievement is part of their makeup. But the ETS study found signs of trouble, with its authors warning that the nation was at a crossroads: “We can decide to accept the current levels of mediocrity and inequality or we can decide to address the skills challenge head on.”

The challenge is that, in literacy, U.S. millennials scored higher than only three countries.

In math, Americans ranked last.

In technical problem-saving, they were second from the bottom.

“Abysmal,” noted ETS researcher Madeline Goodman. “There was just no place where we performed well.”
So what about Millenials with credentials?
"But surely America’s brightest were on top?

Nope. U.S. millennials with master’s degrees and doctorates did better than their peers in only three countries, Ireland, Poland and Spain. Those in Finland, Sweden and Japan seemed to be on a different planet."
The US Department of Education should be abolished, along with numerous other federal parasites on American society.

Don't Feel Safe? This Safe Spot Is Probably Not For You

Not Your Parents’ Open House
At Wesleyan University, if you’re oppressed, there’s a “safe space” for you.


Just when you’d gotten the hang of LGBTQ, they go and triple the number of categories. Wesleyan University is now offering a “safe space” (formerly known as a “dorm”) for students of the LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM persuasions, or, for those who need things spelled out, for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Queer, Questioning, Flexual, Asexual, Genderfuck, Polyamourous, Bondage/Disciple, Dominance/Submission, Sadism/Masochism student acolytes. If you are so heteronormative as to see the word “FAG” in the center of that jumble, you will surely not be allowed into the “safe space,” known as Open House.
As she goes on to say, if you are heteronormative you are not welcome and would not feel safe there. No white males on the list, either. Or for that matter, blacks of any gendernormative persuasion. Actually, no normative people at all. Just fainting flowers who can't handle the evolutionary universe which doesn't care about them. Wait - there are no Atheists or evolutionists on the list; wait until they hear about this macroaggression.

But help is HERE!.

Corruption Chronicles

Well, no one can log in all the corruption in today's USA, but here are a couple, one regarding the IRS (rotten through and through), and the greens (also rotten). Oh, Can't forget Hillary, right?
George Will: Stopping the IRS

“The National Treasury Employees Union,” she says, “provides no protection to IRS employees that federal statutes and the civil service system do not already provide. It already takes an act of God to hold an IRS employee accountable for his or her actions. But it is worse than merely redundant for IRS employees to belong to the NTEU. Because it adds nothing to its members’ protections, it is a purely political organization. In 2014, fully 95 percent of its contributions went to Democrats, including 11 Democratic members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. So, the IRS employees’ union dues finance the election of people who are supposed to scrutinize IRS’ behavior.
And this:


"Billionaire Trying to Force Costly Green Mandate on New York
John Catsimatidis pushing biofuel mandate as he finishes construction on Brooklyn biofuel plant"


Billionaire John Catsimatidis is working to slip a biofuel mandate that would add $150 million to New Yorkers’ heat expenses into the state budget just as a company he owns completes construction of the largest biofuel plant in the region.

The New York Post reports that Catsimatidis’ lobbyists are putting the pressure on State senators to slip a provision that would require all heating oil sold in New York to contain “2 percent or more of soybean oil and/or spent vegetable oils.”

Catsimatidis is building a biofuel-processing plant in Brooklyn that will be the largest plant in the Northeast, according to the report.
And of Course Hillary:
Hillary Clinton Used Personal Email Account at State Dept., Possibly Breaking Rules

"WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.

Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.

It was only two months ago, in response to a new State Department effort to comply with federal record-keeping practices, that Mrs. Clinton’s advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages of her personal emails and decided which ones to turn over to the State Department. All told, 55,000 pages of emails were given to the department. Mrs. Clinton stepped down from the secretary’s post in early 2013.

Her expansive use of the private account was alarming to current and former National Archives and Records Administration officials and government watchdogs, who called it a serious breach.

“It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario — short of nuclear winter — where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business,” said Jason R. Baron, a lawyer at Drinker Biddle & Reath who is a former director of litigation at the National Archives and Records Administration.

A spokesman for Mrs. Clinton, Nick Merrill, defended her use of the personal email account and said she has been complying with the “letter and spirit of the rules.”"
Corruption goes clear to the core.

Simon, On Bibi

Bibi’s Speech—The Real Fallout

"But you know he did a good job because some desperate Democratic backbencher from Kentucky named John Yarmuth got all incensed in his post-speech statement (no, he didn’t attend), accusing Bibi of being like a kid at Disneyland trying to get everything he wants, including extra ice cream. Obviously Yarmuth (a former Republican and a Jew — go figure) missed the key point. Obama and Kerry already were about to give the Iranians everything they want.

Well, not quite. Because when you give the Iranians everything they want, they just want more. And, lo and behold, in the midst of the uproar over Netanyahu’s speech, along comes none other than Iran’s Foreign Minister Zarif to set matters straight:
MONTREUX, Switzerland (Reuters) – Iran rejected on Tuesday as “unacceptable” U.S. President Barack Obama’s demand that it freeze sensitive nuclear activities for at least 10 years but said it would continue talks on a deal, Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency reported.

Iran laid out the position as the U.S. and Iranian foreign ministers met for a second day of negotiations and as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a stinging critique of the agreement they are trying to hammer out.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met a day after Obama told Reuters that Iran must commit to a verifiable halt of at least 10 years on sensitive nuclear work for a landmark atomic deal to be reached.”Iran will not accept excessive and illogical demands,” Zarif was quoted by Fars as saying.
So, in other words, the ten-year sunset clause that many of us thought should be an horrendous non-starter, is not enough for the Iranians — who, of course, will continue to negotiate, probably until 2035, assuming they haven’t blown up half the globe by then.

There you have it — the perfect signal the Iranians aren’t really interested in a deal but wish to continue to play the Obama administration for suckers on into oblivion. Who could have predicted that? Well, a lot of people, including yours truly, the day before yesterday — and I don’t speak a word of Farsi."
Obama got all pissy about Netanyahu possibly revealing "secret" negotiations when in fact both he, himself, and the Iranian Foreign minister had already done so, directly to the media. What Obama actually wanted obviously was to tamp down that knowledge of his appeasement of Islamic state terrorism in the national MSM, so that the Left's low information voters didn't hear about it. Well, that AND to attempt to marginalize the leader of Israel.

To Fight Anti-Semitism

I receive many emails daily regarding various programs needing support. Some I do, some I do not. This program is important because of the escalating hate climate coming from the Left: anti-Semitism is becoming virulent in the Left, and colleges and universities are breeding grounds. I am not soliciting for this program, so much as creating awareness of the seriousness of the issue. I feel that this hatred must be stopped at its source.
"From David Horowitz, Freedom Center:

Yes, it can happen here.

Jew Hatred is running rampant in America's universities. According to a new report by the Brandeis Center for Human Rights, 54% of all Jewish students, liberals and conservatives, have seen or been subjected to anti Jewish harassment. This is a cancer on our campuses and the Freedom Center is working to cut it out.

Our target is the Students for Justice in Palestine, a Jew hating and terrorist loving organization that supports Hamas and the destruction of the Jewish State and the extermination of the Jewish people.

As part of my campaign to educate the public about this hate group, the Freedom Center put up posters dramatizing its outrages at the ten most anti Semitic campuses in the country. The objective of these posters is to wake up students, alumni and administrators as to the truth about the SJP.

This is not just another campus protest group. This is an organization dedicated to genocide. Colleges must stop funding and stop giving official recognition to the SJP. That is why we have launched this campaign.

But rooting out the Jew haters won't be easy.

What has happened at UCLA in the past couple of days is indicative of the hypocrisy and double standards that Jewish students and supporters of Israel face. After the Freedom Center put up its posters there, it was immediately accused of "vandalism" by UCLA authorities and is under investigation by UCLA campus police for "defacing university property."

Students for Justice in Palestine harasses and intimidates UCLA students who are Jewish or who defend Israel's right to exist and UCLA responds by accusing us of some petty bureaucratic offense! This enabling of hatred shows, in a nutshell, why anti Semitism is ravaging campuses all across our country.

SJP habitually violates UCLA's "Principles of Community," which forbid discrimination and bigotry against any religious or ethnic group. Yet UCLA authorities, ever vigilant when a charge of "Islamophobia" is made, turn a blind eye to these violations when SJP is the perpetrator. Worse, UCLA authorities actively support SJP's bigotry, providing it with extensive campus privileges, including student funding for its events. These events have featured notorious anti-Semites such as Abdel Malik Ali, whom even the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center admits "promotes anti-Semitism, violence and conspiracy theories."

The David Horowitz Freedom Center will not cooperate with the UCLA police investigation in this matter until administrators begin to enforce their own Principles of Community and related rules and regulations according to a single standard, and withdraws its financial support for hate groups such as Students for Justice in Palestine.

This is our line in the sand. "
Please note the Islamophilia involved, and the inaction to protect Jews.

The following is a solicitation. Don't read it if you find that offensive.
"It will not surprise you to know, as has happened so many times in the past, that I am heading into this battle alone. I know others will follow once we are on the barricades; they always do. But allies are very hard to find when we take the first steps into the battle. That is why I need your help as I begin the fight against Jew hatred on campus.

We are bracing for a possible legal fight and we need to provide security for the speakers we intend todefender of Hamas and orchestrator of Jew hatred whatever the cost. We must be prepared for a bitter struggle to the end with this genocidal group whose mere existence is an insult to everything our universities should stand for.

We must not lose and we must not back down.

This is our chance to stop the Jew hatred sweeping through our college campuses in its tracks. But I need your help. If you could make a donation today of $25, $50, $100 or even more, that would give me the ammunition I need to continue this fight.

Thank you for all you do for the Freedom Center and for our country.

Leftists Go Full Force Raging Anti-Semitism on Netanyahu.

Wow! Democrats LASH OUT at Netanyahu, Tell Him to Go Home, Call Him “a Child”
The Left goes into foaming rant mode, resembling full-bore metal jacket anti-Semitism at its heyday... and maybe its heyday is returning as the Left stampedes to punish Israel for existing. So much hate. See video at the source.

The hatred and disrespect for Israel has been brought erupting to the surface by the terror that Netanyahu strikes into the cowardly hearts of the Left: the fear that Americans will realize that Netanyahu is right - Israel is being sold out by the appeasement of Iran. Negotiating with terrorists who declare their intent to annihilate an ally is well beyond folly. It is betrayal.

All the bleating of the Left to preserve the SECRET talks from being revealed to the western world smacks of a railroad to treasonous capitulation to Islamic, hegemonic, murderous barbarians with whom the Left is now inexplicably in love.

If Obama will not lawfully manage the US borders, he also will not protect anyone from Iran and its atomic bombs. That's the only plausible reason to keep the Iran deal secret. And revealing this secret betrayal of Netanyahu and Israel is the reason for their hysteria.

Votes For Karl Marx

Mark Dice once again plumbs the depths of American ignorance (and generally, failure to admit it).



This is beyond sad; it is criminal - or should be - that any American over the age of 8 does not know who Karl Marx was.

Complexity Within A Cell

The existence of the first cell is a physical anomaly which Atheist Evolutionists cannot address. The first cell would be the first life, unless there is life which exists or existed outside the cell. That would be necessary, unless the entire cell came into existence at once. There is a tacit recognition that the specified complexity, which is irreducible, could not have happened from the fundamentals of minerals and their properties. So pre-cellular hypotheses have been produced.

There have been two major hypotheses regarding the evolution of a living cell from pure minerals: RNA World, and Metabolite World. In each of those theories, molecules came into existence which self-replicated (RNA World) or performed metabolic functions without any recipient for energy translation (Metabolite world). These worlds hypothetically existed independently and over deep time each became attached to the other function which arose later. Together these two functions, replication and metabolic cycling, somehow got surrounded by a membrane and became a cell. Both of these theories have been dropped, probably due to the vast complexities of the individual cell which neither theory can account for, on top of the vanishing probability of having occurred in the first place.

In the case of RNA World, the replication of RNA does not occur spontaneously. Replication requires a myriad of specialized proteins and enzymes to occur, and in real life RNA does not replicate, it is derived from segments of DNA which contain the coding for RNA. Further, to get RNA from the DNA, external RNA is required to already exist, along with RNA polymerase (a catalytic, enabling enzyme). But the enzyme is made of proteins which are derived from segments of DNA also, in turn requiring the pre-existence of the enzyme to excise and replicate another copy of its type.

In other words, all the basic components of the transcription of RNA, RNA polymerase, the associated proteins, sugars and nucleotides have to pre-exist, before any of these can be produced by replication.

This is only one attribute of the massive complexity within a cell, and the paradox of natural creation out of pure minerals, elements and their properties.

Here are some videos showing animation of some of the functions inside a living cell. I particularly like the microtubules and the motor transport function.



And this is a video of the RNA function, from a different source:

http://sites.sinauer.com/cooper6e/animation0702.html (note 1)

These are indicators of why it is that living cells, even the most primitive, cannot be deduced from the properties of minerals, and why evolution and its adherents do not wish to discuss abiogenesis (first life).

Note 1: This video, and others, come attached to the excellent textbook, "The Cell; A Molecular Approach", Cooper and Hausman, Sinauer Publisher, 6th ed.

Merck, MMR Vaccine, and Science Fraud

Vaccine bullies also are accountable for their Scientistic arrogant claims against those who don't want this stuff in their kids. Note that it is black boys who are at most risk... corporate racists.

Merck Has Some Explaining To Do Over Its MMR Vaccine Claims

"Merck, the pharmaceutical giant, is facing a slew of controversies over its Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine following numerous allegations of wrongdoing from different parties in the medical field, including two former Merck scientists-turned-whistleblowers. A third whistleblower, this one a scientist at the Centers for Disease Control, also promises to bring Merck grief following his confession of misconduct involving the same MMR vaccine.

The controversies will find Merck defending itself and its vaccine in at least two federal court cases after a U.S. District judge earlier this month threw out Merck's attempts at dismissal. Merck now faces federal charges of fraud from the whistleblowers, a vaccine competitor and doctors in New Jersey and New York. Merck could also need to defend itself in Congress: The staff of representative Bill Posey (R-Fla) -- a longstanding critic of the CDC interested in an alleged link between vaccines and autism -- is now reviewing some 1,000 documents that the CDC whistleblower turned over to them.

The first court case, United States v. Merck & Co., stems from claims by two former Merck scientists that Merck "fraudulently misled the government and omitted, concealed, and adulterated material information regarding the efficacy of its mumps vaccine in violation of the FCA [False Claims Act]."

According to the whistleblowers' court documents, Merck's misconduct was far-ranging: It "failed to disclose that its mumps vaccine was not as effective as Merck represented, (ii) used improper testing techniques, (iii) manipulated testing methodology, (iv) abandoned undesirable test results, (v) falsified test data, (vi) failed to adequately investigate and report the diminished efficacy of its mumps vaccine, (vii) falsely verified that each manufacturing lot of mumps vaccine would be as effective as identified in the labeling, (viii) falsely certified the accuracy of applications filed with the FDA, (ix) falsely certified compliance with the terms of the CDC purchase contract, (x) engaged in the fraud and concealment describe herein for the purpose of illegally monopolizing the U.S. market for mumps vaccine, (xi) mislabeled, misbranded, and falsely certified its mumps vaccine, and (xii) engaged in the other acts described herein to conceal the diminished efficacy of the vaccine the government was purchasing."

These fraudulent activities, say the whistleblowers, were designed to produce test results that would meet the FDA's requirement that the mumps vaccine was 95 per cent effective. To the whistleblowers' delight, the judge dismissed Merck's objections to the case proceeding, finding the whistleblowers had plausible grounds on all of the claims lodged against Merck.

If the whistleblowers win, it would represent more than a moral victory (they repeatedly tried to stop Merck while still in its employ). Under the False Claims Act, the whistleblowers would receive a share -- likely 25 per cent to 30 per cent -- of the amount the government recovers. Previous settlements involving extensive fraud by pharmaceutical companies under the False Claims Act have run into the hundreds of millions of dollars, and in some cases such as against GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer, into the billions.

The second court case, Chatom Primary Care v. Merck & Co. relies on the same whistleblower evidence. This class action suit claims damages because Merck had fraudulently monopolized the mumps market. Doctors and medical practices in the suit would be able to obtain compensation for having been sold an overpriced monopolized product, and a defective one to boot, in that the mumps vaccine wasn't effective (indeed, the suit alleged that Merck expected outbreaks to occur and, as predicted, they did -- mumps epidemics occurred in 2006 in a highly vaccinated population and again in 2009-2010).

"Plaintiffs have argued sufficient facts to sustain a claim for proximate causation, detailing the significant barriers that other companies would face to enter the mumps vaccine market," the court ruled.

The third whistleblower -- a senior CDC scientist named William Thompson -- only indirectly blew the whistle on Merck. He more blew it on himself and colleagues at the CDC who participated in a 2004 study involving the MMR vaccine. Here, the allegations involve a cover-up of data pointing to high rates of autism in African-American boys after they were vaccinated with MMR. In what could be high-profile House hearings before Congressman Posey's Science Committee -- hearings made all the more explosive given the introduction of race into the mix -- Merck could find itself under unprecedented scrutiny. The CDC still stands by its study although Frank DeStefano, the CDC's Director of Immunization Safety and a co-author in the CDC study, also stated that he plans to review his notes with an eye to reanalyzing the data.

Some say all publicity is good. In Merck's case, regardless of the ultimate merits, the publicity will be all bad."

More Islamic Insult On Western Culture

The censorship of moral cowards:
Another Victory for Muslims: Writing about Bacon Now Forbidden at This Popular University

"It wasn’t long ago where it was reported KFC had to remove alcohol cleansing moist towelettes from their stores because it was against the traditions of Islam to consume alcohol.

The KFC in question was in the UK, and it’s out of that same country where another demonstrably idiotic policy is taking effect.

Oxford University Press has forbidden their writers to mention pork in any of their writings so as to not offend Muslims.

That’s right, kiss the word bacon goodbye if you want one of your books published by the world’s largest university press.

Now to be fair, the Oxford University Press does claim the policy is also set in place so as to not offend Jews either… but that slight little addition is surely being included only so their move doesn’t look as shameful as it really is.

It’s not like Jews have been unilaterally clamoring for the entire world to bow down to the teachings of the Torah.

According to the International Business Times, writers can’t mention pigs, or “anything else which could be perceived as pork.” So that means the Oxford University Press won’t be able to talk about bacon, pork loins, pork tenderloins, pork chops, pork belly, ham, or anything else that comes from pigs.

The reason they have come to this decision is because they want their books to be available to the largest general audience as possible. So that means if they need to get rid of the mention of pork, then so be it.

A representative from the Press said:

Many of the educational materials we publish in the U.K. are sold in more than 150 countries, and as such they need to consider a range of cultural differences and sensitivities… Our editorial guidelines are intended to help ensure that the resources that we produce can be disseminated to the widest possible audience.

It’s absolute madness, is what it is.

Stories about the the over-the-top ways establishment organizations are acquiescing to Muslim demands show how the Islamists are getting exactly what they want.

At a time where Muslims are gaining more and more power across the world, it’s worrisome how governments as well as large institutions are folding at the least bit of pressure"

Obama Saves Iran From Israel

Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike

"The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

Following Obama's threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.

According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back."
If there's any doubt left in any dark corner of your mind regarding the deeply inherent evil in Barack Obama, this should do the trick to light it up. It is proof that Obama wants Iran to have the bomb, at the expense of Israel's existence. It is proof that Obama will bully our western allies in favor of his eastern pals. It is proof of Obama's (and his administration's) anti-semitism.

No wonder Obama has soiled his pants over Bibi's upcoming speech. I wish I had netspan so I could watch it. I expect Democrats to boycott, heckle, or walk out - anything in their attempt to stop or embarrass the leader of the only free country in the middle east.

The Marxists Who Now Control of the Internet

Comrades for Net Neutrality

"Today’s vote by a bitterly divided Federal Communications Commission that the Internet should be regulated as a public utility is the culmination of a decade-long battle by the Left. Using money from George Soros and liberal foundations that totaled at least $196 million, radical activists finally succeeded in ramming through “net neutrality,” or the idea that all data should be transmitted equally over the Internet. The final push involved unprecedented political pressure exerted by the Obama White House on FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, head of an ostensibly independent regulatory body."
It's not surprising that Soros has bought the internet; he has been trying to buy elections in the US for decades (ignored completely by the media of course). While the Left hammers and bleats about the Koch Brothers, the leftist billionaires like Steyer and Soros buy politics and politicians with immunity.
"But such voices have been drowned out by left-wing activists who want to manage the Internet to achieve their political objectives. The most influential of these congregate around the deceptively named Free Press, a liberal lobby co-founded in 2002 by Robert McChesney, a University of Illinois communications professor. His goals have always been clear.
“At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies,” he told the website SocialistProject in 2009. “But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.”
Earlier in 2000, he told the Marxist magazine Monthly Review:
“Our job is to make media reform part of our broader struggle for democracy, social justice, and, dare we say it, socialism.”
When I interviewed him in 2010, he admitted he is a socialist and said he was
“hesitant to say I’m not a Marxist.”
In essence, what McChesney and his followers want is an Unfree Press — a media world that promotes their values.
“To cast things in neo-Marxist terms that they could appreciate, they want to take control of the information means of production,”
says Adam Therier of the blog TechLiberation.

Obama's Preemptive Attack on Israel's Leader: Official Antisemitism

White House Offers Rebuttal Before Netanyahu’s Speech

"Just four days before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint meeting of Congress, the Obama administration sought on Friday to refute the Israeli leader’s expected critique, arguing that he has failed to present a feasible alternative to American proposals for constraining Iran’s nuclear program.

In a briefing for reporters, senior administration officials contended that even an imperfect agreement that kept Iran’s nuclear efforts frozen for an extended period was preferable to a breakdown in talks that could allow the leadership in Tehran unfettered ability to produce enriched uranium and plutonium.

“The alternative to not having a deal is losing inspections,” said one senior official, who would not be quoted by name under conditions that the administration set for the briefing, “and an Iran ever closer to having the fissile material to manufacture a weapon.”
No. False. The alternative is to destroy the facilities. They are an avowed enemy who has openly declared their intent to destroy Israel and the Great Satan, the USA. This is mere appeasement, and will not work as anyone who has read any actual history knows. No one in the administration cares what will happen to Israel after Iran gets the bomb. Nor do they care what happens to the USA, apparently, as they march toward its destruction.

It's interesting to see Obama eviscerate US military, the economy, and foreign influence, while rapidly increasing control of US internal affairs by reducing freedoms virtually daily. He said before his first election that he favored positive rights, which means that the population gets only those rights which are specifically stated as rights by the government. And that is nearly here and would take only a little tumble from his pen in the direction of "security" and "hate thought".

Congress is now trivial; it is controlled by cowardly Bosses in both chambers, an unintended consequence of non-constitutional house and senate "rules" and "leaders". Even so, it has been completely neutered by Obama's challenge to veto any attempt to control him. The dictatorship is now blatantly out in the open, and without a coup, will not be stopped.

The fault lies in the culture, which has been corrupted over generations - generations which have been stabilized in their ignorance and self-righteous entitlement. That's how Obama got elected; that's how the Democrats still own enough of the government to stop impeachment. The very fabric of the nation, starting with its minds and moral sense, has been divested and self-righteous totalitarianism has been installed as the new Social Justice.

What, Exactly, Are the Risks?

If DHS is shut down, there are all sorts of risks. Like, the borders will be open. Like, old ladies won't get groped and young ladies won't get their nude bodies ogled in X-ray booths in airports. Like, millions of phones won't get tapped and computers won't be infected with backdoors or time-released worms. Like, what else? I can't really think of anything else. (Put the Coast Guard under the Navy, the CIA under the Army, and the FBI under Congressional oversight).

Under Obama, DHS is the opposite of homeland security. They allow illegals from all nations free entry and give them all sorts of stuff, including busing them to the farthest reaches of the nation. They turn thousands of illegal alien criminals, including hundreds of murderers, loose on the nation, not to mention allowing entry to the diseased parasite carriers.

All that could be done more efficiently with zero personnel and zero budget and zero Leftist administrators hauling down zero huge salaries and zero bonuses.

So I say, just shut it down permanently. What ever risks that produces are already there in the existing system.

Hillary's emails, and the Benghazi Lies; Murder by Negligence

Hillary knew, and knows that she knew and now we know that she knows that she knew.
Hillary Clinton’s Top Aides Knew from First Minutes that Benghazi Was a Terrorist Attack, E-mails Disclose

"From the very first moments of the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aides were advised that the compound was under a terrorist attack. In fact, less than two hours into the attack, they were told that the al-Qaeda affiliate in Libya, Ansar al-Sharia, had claimed responsibility.

These revelations and others are disclosed by a trove of e-mails and other documents pried from the State Department by Judicial Watch in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. The FOIA litigation focuses on Mrs. Clinton’s involvement in the government actions before, during, and after the Benghazi attack, in which Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was murdered by terrorists. Also killed in the attack were State Department information management officer Sean Smith, and two former Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were contract security employees and who had fought heroically, saving numerous American lives. At least ten other Americans were wounded, some quite seriously."
She lied, she had a film-maker jailed as a scapegoat, she said "what difference does it make now" (as close to "let them eat cake" as one can get. None of this will be carried to any significant extent to the MSM, which ministers to the Leftists and their public ignorati. By failing to protect them from terrorist attack, Hillary is guilty of their murders.

Eric Holder Recommends Easier Laws For Declaring His War On Whites

That is the essence of what he has said, and the essence of his actions as racist-in-charge of the US Justice Department. Consider his equal lack of concern for the killing of black teens by murderous Illegal Aliens. The Illegal Aliens are more precious than even blacks, apparently. The persecution and prosecution of whites is all that Holder cares about.

He is dismayed that he has no evidence to use for persecuting/prosecuting his enemies (whites), so he wants lower standards for thought crimes. Possibly these crimes could just be presupposed, based on skin color, or class, or some other unrelated attribute. That would make racial persecution of whites by blacks/Leftists easier.
Eric Holder's parting shot: It's too hard to bring civil rights cases

"Attorney General Eric Holder plans to push, during his final weeks in office, a new standard of proof for civil-rights offenses, saying in an exit interview with POLITICO that such a change would make the federal government “a better backstop” against discrimination in cases like Ferguson and Trayvon Martin.

In a lengthy discussion ranging from his own exposure to the civil rights movement of the ’60s to today’s controversies surrounding the shootings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, Holder also acknowledged that he felt some of his own struggles with Republicans in Congress during his six years in office were driven partly by race."
Holder brought racism directly into the job, operated as a black racist while in the job, and leaves spouting racist excuses for not doing more as a racist in the job.
President Obama Breaks Into Tears as He Says Goodbye to Holder
Perhaps he will weep as the new racist is installed as chief of DOJ. (I'm surprised that Al Sharpton didn't buy the position for himself...)
