Rachel Dolezal’s Complexion Problem

She's either a giant Q-Tip or preparing to become a human cannonball.

She’s either a giant Q-Tip or preparing to become a human cannonball.

Elizabeth Warren meet Rachel Dolezal. Or better yet, Liawatha meet Fauxprah. Talk about your sisters from another mother! One pretends to be an Indian to exploit the racial spoils system on the East Coast. While the other undergoes what Zorro & The Blue Footballs called the “race change operation” to become black and abuse that quota system on the West Coast.

When Warren’s deception was discovered her nicknames became very colorful: Crockagawea, Fauxcahontas and Liawatha were some of the best. Dolezal and her blackface masquerade also have great potential. In just a few minutes I’ve come up with Josephine Faker, Liah Angelou, Phony Morrison, Nodetta and Fauxprah. You can create your own, but hurry, Rachel’s notoriety won’t last as long as Elizabeth’s, unless she can find enough deluded Democrats to elect her to office, too.

Dolezal’s transformation started slowly. Her parents adopted four black orphans. This act of kindness had a bizarre impact on blonde, blue–eyed Rachel. Maybe it was the attention they received. Maybe it was the melatonin.

Eventually she applied for a scholarship to historically black Howard University in Washington, DC. Family members couldn’t help but notice she sounded more like Hattie McDaniel during her phone interviews than white–bread Rachel, but their surprise was nothing compared to the shock in the admissions office at Howard when Goldilocks walked in the door.

Her time there was not without incident. She attempted a failed lawsuit against university for racial and sex discrimination. I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she got tired of being called “Snowflake” and decided to do something about it.

Her mistake may have been combining Man Tan with Jheri Curl in a single session. She dozed off as Rachel and woke up as Fakey Minaj. After listening to Michelle I was under the impression life as a black woman was tough: subtle insults at state dinners, news media hanging on your every word and people at Target asking you to reach for items on the top shelf.

But here’s Rachel volunteering for duty. She had a brief marriage to a black man — it may have caused problems when he asked why a black woman had to spend so much time on the tanning bed — and then moved to Spokane to become the Al Sharpton of the organic clothing crowd.

And that proved to be the beginning of the end. Spokane is not all that far from her parent’s home in Montana and as Rachel’s profile increased it was only a matter of time before someone made the connection.

In retrospect Dolezal is almost a cliché. First she tries too hard. Rachel grew this huge, unruly mop of Rasta hair that I thought was supposed to be confined under a large knit cap. But no, she piles it on top of her head and as a result she looks like a cross between giant Q–Tip or a human cannonball testing a new shock absorption system.

She uses her chemically–induced race to become chair of the Seattle Police Ombudsman Commission where she searches for police brutality. Rachel claims her adopted black brother is actually her son. Ben Shapiro has unearthed an interview with The Easterner where she says the family lived in a teepee, dad hunted with a bow and arrow and they had to flee to South Africa where she was abused with a Boer whip.

Rachel claims to be a professor when she’s not; says she was date raped but didn’t file charges; explains her hair is blonde because she had cancer and whines that someone painted a swastika on the door of an office where she worked.

Essentially Dolezal is a leftist grievance recycling center masquerading as a human. The only thing she hasn’t claimed to justify her ethnic transformation is dad was the “black sheep” of the family.

Now it’s all come crashing down. She had to resign from the NAACP, the police stopped investigating her hate crime magnetism, the university didn’t renew her contract and the black man she claims is her father disowned her.

The only good news for our drama queen is the gullible and superficial media is flying her east to appear on network TV. And there are rumors of an endorsement deal with Fake Bake.

Before she resigned, authentic members of the NAACP were starting a petition to force Rachel to take a leave of absence during the controversy. Her resignation pre–empts that, but some alone time might come in handy. Rachel could try to get in touch with her roots. I hear Scandinavia is very nice this time of year.

Under Obama, Everything Is A “New Normal”

We’ve been told for years that Bush and the capitalists destroyed our economy and increased unemployment and that we must accept the reality of reduced opportunity and stolen liberty that George Bush left behind.  But it appears that under our beloved leader and ruler, Barack Obama, everything has only gotten ominously worse, so now we have to accept the “new normal” that Obama has given us.

Because of the unconstitutional Obamacare and the onslaught of unlawful regulations by the EPA, unemployment is up greatly and wages are stagnant at best.  And because Obama doesn’t have the brains or the courage to make difficult decisions, he dithers (except when a fast decision is needed that will negatively impact the middle class and the economy), and in the case of ISIS, his indecision is allowing our enemy to win and is assuring that terrorist activity around the world will continue and likely increase.  It’s also causing greater fear in Israel because Obama’s pals campaigned against Netanyahu in the latest election there, and because Obama says he will not support Israel if fighting breaks out in the area.

Obama, along with the Commie New York Mayor, Bill DeBlasio, and accompanied by the racist activist Maryland prosecutor, Marilyn Mosby and the Mayor of Baltimore, has greatly and negatively impacted the police forces of the United States.  New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, Ferguson, Dallas and other cities have experienced major attacks on police officers with the threat of more attacks to come, because leftists don’t want criminals to be punished.

The nations of the world that used to be our allies have wisely learned to NOT trust Obama and are looking at the U.S. as a flawed nation that can’t be trusted to keep its word nor do the right thing when action is required.

Under Obama the office of the president has taken on dictatorial powers as Obama issues unconstitutional executive orders in rapid succession.  Immigration has become a critical item as our president invites illegals to cross our borders, hires transportation and lodging for these invaders well in advance of their arrival and then whisks them away to hide throughout the nation.  How many of the children illegally entering our country were beaten, tortured and raped along the course of their long trek?  And how many were enslaved or killed along the long and dangerous path that we’ll never hear of? This last point is important because it’s part of Obama’s plan that the children will come here alone and unprotected by parents, and then our government will pay to have their parents flown to the U.S. to join them, using the idiotic logic that Americans want families to live together, not be separated, so Mom and Pop are flown here instead of flying the children back home.

Even if it’s true that more Americans have healthcare now than ever before, under Obamacare millions of Americans lost the coverage they wanted, liked and could afford, and many who are now on Obamacare can’t afford to use it because of the high deductibility rates of Obama’s plan, so these unfortunates are effectively, again, without health care.

Obama is proving his untrustworthiness in the nuclear talks with Iran.  He won’t impose sanctions that will hurt the Mullahs and he won’t insist on instant investigations to check on illegal development of nuclear weapons.  In short, Obama is aiding the Iranians to develop nuclear weapons.  The civilized world is shocked at his stupidity, but Americans know this is just what you get when a community organizer promises to “fundamentally transform America”.

And next comes the social engineering that Obama became president for.  The HUD plan to establish government welfare housing in middle class communities throughout the nation is being pushed hard by the administration.  This means that middle class housing that most Americans aspire to will have their property values destroyed so people who have not had any ambition or discipline in their lives, who have not taken the effort to get a decent education, who have not put off having children until they were economically stable, and who have not gotten a job and stayed employed, are going to be taking over the more desirable neighborhoods.  And, as already discussed, these welfare people will be moving into these unsuspecting, pleasant neighborhoods with the police forces already under physical and verbal attack by liberals and criminals alike, and whose officers have begun to back off from enforcing laws out of fear of themselves being killed or prosecuted for just being police and enforcing the law.

Obama’s repeated, unending soft attacks on America have reduced its citizens’ expectations of living a prosperous and successful life and have created a lowered “new normal” level of evaluating what’s good and bad and how much of it we can and should expect.  We have been manipulated into accepting higher unemployment, more crime, less income, a weakened and reduced military and less liberty.  And when that happens Barry becomes the winner and is totally successful in his presidency.

 

Liberal Trans-Gender and Trans-Race Misfits Equal Societal Confusion

Racial confusion:

Elizabeth Warren is an Indian.

Rachel Dolezal (whose forebears were all white) is a black woman.

 

Sexual confusion:

Bruce Jenner is a woman.

Men “marry” men and women “marry” women.

 

Class confusion:

John Kerry is working class hunter (can I get me a huntin’ license here?)

The Clintons were flat broke when they left the White House.

 

National confusion:

Obama criticizes Christians and fundamentally transforms America but loves the Muslim call to prayer.

A CNN reported says terrorists who attack police are brave heroes.

 

Weather confusion:

Snow-fall in June is due to global warming.

Tornadoes in Oklahoma are due to global warming.

Obama’s presidency will halt the “rise of the ocean”.

Hurricanes in Florida are due to global warming.

 

Political confusion:

Republicans wage a war against women (this from Hillary who attacked women who dared to complain about her husband, Bill, who remains a liberal role model, abusing and raping women).

Hillary is honest.

And there is actually some tradition and history to back up these idiot claims: Didn’t Bill Clinton self-proclaim himself to be the first black president?  And didn’t Barack Obama recently state that he’s the closest thing to a Jew in the White House that America has had?  With liberals, up is down and down is up.  Black is white and white is black. Male is female and female is male.  So who’s the craziest? And these people want to rule this nation?  God help us!

 

Government Schools In Your Home

Recently a friend of mine was telling me her daughter was having a drink with a friend after work when after a while her friend had to excuse herself for a P.T.O. meeting.  When her daughter asked her why so late she responded, “Oh  we don’t go there anymore, they come to us.” WHAAAAT????

This prompted me to do some research and what I found was, while innocent and good intentioned on the outside, was chilling in other aspects indeed. Apparently this has been going on for the last 15 years at least and is a law in15 states. The idea is to build better relationships with the families of the student and the school. St. Paul Minnesota  has such a plan and is a good example:

 The Saint Paul Federation of Teachers is a regional training site for the National Parent/Teacher Home Visit Project started in Sacramento, California over 15 years ago.  Today, the project has spread to over 15 states across the country.  More information can be found at www.pthvp.org.

SPFT provides training on how to conduct effective home visits, along with other strategies for building partnerships between parents and teachers.

In only three years our project has grown from 6 teachers trained visiting about 15 families, to a total of 500+ teachers trained today and over 500 families visited last year.  We have also begun to train outside of St. Paul.  We have trained two schools in Colombia Heights and one in Eau Clair, WI.  SPFT’s work has been noticed and featured in the Pioneer Press, Star Tribune, and the Twin City Daily Planet.  Last fall our work was featured on NBC’s Today Show during Education Nation.

 Visits with Parents

 Forge a strong partnership with parents by meeting them on their own turf.

 Sometimes it’s hard to get the help you need from parents in getting their children motivated and ready to learn—especially when the parents didn’t go to school themselves or had a bad time of it.

There are many approaches to enlisting parents’ support. The program outlined here was developed by parents and teachers working together in Sacramento, California, with strong support from the Sacramento City Teachers Association. It has been used in hundreds of schools in six states.

(Visit www.teachervisits.org for more.)

Before you start:

At least half of the faculty should want to do it.

Nobody should be forced to do it or punished for not doing it.

Everybody who does it should be paid.

Typically, there’s a three-hour training program before the home visits start.

Preparing for a visit:

Don’t visit only kids in trouble. That puts a stigma on getting a visit. Go see everybody, or if that’s not possible, be sure to include at least some students who are doing well.

When you call to set up a visit, offer alternative times—few parents will say no if you’re flexible. Most visits are in the afternoon or on weekends. If the parents are uncomfortable inviting you into their home, meet at a coffee shop, a library, or even a park.

Go with a partner—two teachers or a teacher and a support professional.

At the meeting:

  1. Have everyone explain his or her relationship to the student. Usually, the student is there.
  2. Getting to know you. Find out whether the parents have other children in school. What’s been their experience in schools up until now?
  3. Most important. The hopes and dreams conversation. Ask the parents about their dreams for their student, and share yours. You will probably discover you have much in common. “To stop and say why you do what you do—that can be very powerful for the teacher, not just the parent,” says Carrie Rose, who directs the Parent/Teacher Home Visit Project.
  4. Explain what you need from the parent, and ask what the parent would like you to do. (Often, parents ask how they can contact you.)

If possible, don’t come with papers and don’t take notes. Parents will feel you are evaluating them. If you must deliver information, like the bell schedule or graduation requirements, don’t pull out any paper for at least 20 minutes.

The typical meeting lasts 30 to 45 minutes.

 Then there are situations such as this that happened to one teacher:

 “When we started, home visits were not part of the culture, and some parents would not let us come to the home. One mom had a lot of problems, including drugs. She had had her kids taken away before. She reluctantly agreed to meet at a McDonald’s, but she would not open up.

“Her children had poor attendance, and we were trying to impress on her that she needed to get them to school on time. Her answers were curt. The whole meeting was over in 10 or 15 minutes.

While this program apparently seems successful, with today’s liberal establishment controlling the education dept. and with all the NSA spying on us there are other scenarios that can arise. For instance, a teacher wanders into a home and sees a gun rack and books by Dick Cheney and Ann Coulter. The teacher can report back to the supervisor that the family are  right wing extremists or a teacher wanders into a home with a cross on the wall and a bible on a table, the teacher can report back that the family is of the religious right. It can’t happen here you say? Well as soldier was just court martialed for having a bible on her desk. No, no, no it can’t happen here they say, but it does.

What’s The Difference Between Criminals And Liberals? Not Much!

Criminals lie about their culpability in crimes (as in: Not guilty, your honor).

Liberals lie about their political intentions (as in: If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor).

 

Criminals take your money (as in: Hands up. Your money or your life).

Liberals take your money (as with the IRS: we’re just seeking economic justice for the vast underclass who have been so miserably mistreated these many years under the scourge of capitalism).

 

Criminals conduct illegal aliens across our border.

Liberals state that immigration is “broken”, that they won’t enforce current immigration laws, and as a result illegal aliens flood across our border.

 

The definition of a criminal is one who disobeys or violates laws, and criminals will disobey any law they disagree with or that they find inconvenient.  Obama has selectively enforced the laws he likes but has publicly stated that he will allow illegal aliens to cross our border at their leisure, and then identifies the resulting border disaster as proof that he must ignore current immigration law and create new law that he likes better and finds more convenient for his political purposes.

Even the argument that liberals make asserting that the money they take from the earners helps the poor and underprivileged is a lie because time and decades of ever-expanding welfare have shown that the pittance welfare recipients get from the government only entraps them in poverty, with the intention, by the liberals dishing out the money, that the recipients will vote liberal in future elections.

Walter Williams has frequently made the point that much of our tax money is just legalized theft (take from those who earn money and give to those who don’t earn but only take), and he’s correct.  If citizen A takes money from citizen B to give to citizen C it’s considered theft.  But the government can take B’s money all day long and give it to C, D and a host of other worthy citizens of the government’s choosing (including vast wastefulness and duplication, also of the government’s choosing) and this is called compassion.

This lawlessness on the part of our president must stop or all laws will eventually be ignored and chaos will rule, and chaos is exactly what Obama wants and needs to further “fundamentally transform” America.

Surprise! Scientists ‘Crack Code’ to Happiness

I love this quote by illustrious NASA scientist Dr. Robert Jastrow (1925-2008): “For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountain of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”

I would just add to Dr. Jastrow’s keen insight, that it’s not merely theologians at large who have long lounged atop Mount Understanding. It is, more precisely, Judeo-Christian theologians. Indeed, with time and chance, even science can eventually catch up to God’s Word.

Case in point: Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic is one of the world’s most prestigious health institutions. With much fanfare, researchers there announced last week that they have “cracked the code to being happy.” “Imagine scientists coming up with an actual formula for happiness – a specific recipe for lifelong contentment and joy,” they tease.

Well, my forlorn little friends, imagine no more. These scientists boast of having “created just such a formula based on neuroscience and psychology.” For a mere $15.95 – less than your daily dose of Zoloft and vodka – they’ll rush off to you “The Mayo Clinic Handbook for Happiness,” a “four-step self-help process” to finding “a lifetime of joy and contentment.”

“Happiness is a habit,” says the study’s chief researcher Dr. Amit Sood in the Daily Mail. “Some of us are born with it; others have to choose it.”

“Previous research has shown that our minds are hard-wired to focus on negative experiences. For our ancestors,” continues the report, being perpetually PO’ed, “helped them stay alive, providing an evolutionary advantage in the face of danger.” (Some of us attribute this to mankind’s fallen, selfish, sinful nature, but we can go with that whole evolution thingy if it makes them feel better.)

Concludes the Daily Mail: “The book makes readers focus on a different positive emotion each day, such as gratitude, forgiveness and kindness.”

Wait. Hold the Mayo. This is déjà vu all over again. What “book” are we talking about here? Where have we heard all this before – talk of gratitude, forgiveness, kindness and whatnot, leading to joy, contentment, happiness and so forth?

Anyway, click over to Mayo’s related “How to be happy” page and you’re given a little more detail.

“People who are happy seem to intuitively know that their happiness is the sum of their life choices, and their lives are built on the following pillars:

  • Devoting time to family and friends
  • Appreciating what they have
  • Maintaining an optimistic outlook
  • Feeling a sense of purpose
  • Living in the moment

Look, I’m glad you’re getting the message out, guys, but, c’mon, plagiarize much? This isn’t a revolutionary “formula” “created” by “scientists” and “based on neuroscience and psychology.” While it’s all true, you’re a bit late to the game. Dr. Jastrow’s theologians have been well acclimated to this lofty altitude for, oh, about 2,000 years. You guys have more degrees than a thermometer. You should know to cite your original source.

So, let’s break it down. Though there are many to choose from, and while the following is in no way comprehensive, let’s contrast Mayo’s “breakthrough” happiness pillars to but a few of their long-established counterparts in the original “handbook for happiness:”

Devoting time to family and friends

“Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near (Hebrews 10:24-25).”

“A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).”

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends (John 15:12-13).”

“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity (Proverbs 17:17).”

“Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor (Romans 12:10).”

Appreciating what they have

“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’ (Hebrews 13:5).”

“Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world (1 Timothy 6:6-8).”

“Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content (Philippians 4:11).”

Maintaining an optimistic outlook

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13).”

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9).”

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).”

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds (James 1:2).”

“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones (Proverbs 17:22).”

Feeling a sense of purpose

I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me (Psalm 57:2).”

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might (Ecclesiastes 9:10).”

“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands (Psalm 138:8).”

“For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end – it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay (Habakkuk 2:3).”

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men (Colossians 3:23).”

Living in the moment

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34).”

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them (Matthew 6:31, 32).”

“As it is said, ‘Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion’ (Hebrews 3:15).”

Still, ultimately, Jesus Himself sums it all accordingly: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me (John 14:1).”

The Mayo Clinic’s pilfered wisdom notwithstanding, that, my friends, is “the actual formula for happiness.”

Why Americans Prefer Fox News

fox-news-logo.png (192×192)

Liberals love complaining and knocking Fox News calling it “Faux News” and other names and saying they lie all the time. Nothing can be further from the truth as you shall see here. I guess they are jealous because someone took away their monopoly of the liberal news media.

Prior to cable news shows all we had was Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings who were all liberals but we didn’t  know it at the time. We trusted them to be accurate  in  their  reporting. Then one day as I was listening to Bob Grant on the radio he had a caller that said to him, “Bob, besides you and Rush Limbaugh on the radio, on TV all we have is Brokaw, Jennings and Rather , Brokaw, Jennings and Rather, it goes on and on. There’s got to be someone else for the other side” To which Bob answered, “Well there isn’t and until we do have something this is all we got.”

Then came  CNN which I liked at first and it changed the news media and how we saw things on an international scale that we hadn’t seen before since they broadcast all around the world.  Then in 1992   at the annual convention of media outlets they voted that they didn’t have to be objective anymore and they could take sides. The shows were all liberals. On Sunday morning they would have their round table discussions which would feature four liberals and one conservative and they called it balance.

Around that time FOX News arrived bearing an outlet for conservatives. Their ratings immediately soared where they still are to this day much to liberals’ chagrin. Today Fox’s ratings are greater than CNN and MSNBC combined. Everyone of their shows average sat least two million viewers at any one  time  and more at night. The most MSNBC gets is 700,000. CNN recently got a new CEO and their ratings   plummeted.  FOX  has been NO.1 in the ratings for the last ten years now. In poll after poll it has been shown that people who watch FOX are better educated, better informed and more likely to vote than people who don’t watch Fox.  I’ve monitored these other stations and their reports and quality of their videos are inferior to Fox’s quality and reports.

Fox is also noted for its’ beautiful women with lots of brains. Liberals attack them too calling them ”trophy reporters” which I say is quite sexist coming from people who call others sexist. Are they saying just because a woman is beautiful she can’t be intelligent?  What a male chauvinist attitude coming from people who are supposed to be anti-chauvinist. Let‘s look at some of their resumes”

Sandra Smith has a degree from Harvard and a Master’s from Yale.

Kimberly Guilfoyle has a law degree and was chief prosecutor for San Francisco and Los Angeles. Guilfoyle graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, Davis, and received her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 1994.

Greta Van Sustern graduated from Xavier High School in Appleton in 1972 and the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1976, where she studied geography and economics. She later earned a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in 1979 and prior to the start of her television work returned to Georgetown Law as an adjunct faculty member in addition to her full-time legal career. She was awarded an honorary doctor of laws degree from Stetson Law School. Greta covered the O.J.Simpson trial for CNN before joining FOX and she recently got that marine out of that Mexican prison when all the other networks barely covered it. Obama refused to lift a finger to let him out when all he had to do was pick up the phone and call the Mexican President.

Meghyn Kelley has her own show on FOX News and is currently the No.1 news anchor on FOX and almost on all of cable TV news. After high school, Kelley pursued an undergraduate degree in political science at Syracuse University,[2] and earned a J.D. from Albany Law School in 1995.

Dana Perino   graduated from Colorado State University-Pueblo (CSU-Pueblo) in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in mass communications and minors in both political science and Spanish.[2] While attending CSU-Pueblo, she was on the forensics team. She also worked at KTSC-TV, the campus-based Rocky Mountain PBS affiliate,[8] where she served as host of Capitol Journal, a weekly summary of Colorado politics, and produced Standoff, a weekly public affairs program. While at college, she also worked at KCCY-FM on the 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. shift. Perino went on to obtain a masters degree in public affairs reporting from the University of Illinois Springfield (UIS).[10] During her time at UIS, she also worked for WCIA, a CBS affiliate, as a daily reporter covering the Illinois Capitol. More recently she was press secretary for George W.Bush.

Andrea Tantaros graduated from Parkland High School in 1997. In 2001, Tantaros graduated from Lehigh University, where she majored in journalism and French and wrote political commentary for Lehigh’s college newspaper. Tantaros pursued graduate studies at the Sorbonne. She speaks three languages,Greek, French and English fluently.

The rest of these women’s resumes are far too extensive to list here,but you can check out their links below. So you can plainly see these women are more than just trophy reporters. Liberals  also complain that FOX News women are all blonde. A recent survey found there are 14 blondes and 12 brunettes and a few redheads too.

Besides as Austin Cunningham’s song about the women of Fox News says “Who can resist beauty with brains.” The same holds true for many of the male anchors and reporters too.

In my research I’ve noticed Fox goes into more detail than any of the other stations and shows you things the other stations don’t want you to see and censor from you. Sure FOX has their faults like all the stations do,but  they are far more accurate than other cable and network news shows and their shows like “Outnumbered” and  ‘The Kelley File” are more entertaining. I’ve also noticed the Fox reporters work harder than the other reporters on other stations. Other stations just have their reporters and anchors on at certain times. Fox has their reporters on at all different times during the day with some of the same reporters morning,noon and night. I often wonder “when do they sleep?” 😀

Obama, Community Equality Breeds Laziness!

Mr. Obama is at it again trying to regulate another part of our lives that makes us uniquely American.

Americans understand freedom, the ability to work harder, do better, move up… and out! We work harder at work to get a better position, make more money, have more security, and more opportunities.

Americans move to communities that reflect their values, have better schools, less density, more density, more pubs, less pubs, more shopping and restaurants, or less shopping and restaurants. We move to certain areas to better our lives or our children’s lives.

Enter his Social Highness Mr. Obama, who has decided that we (Americans) don’t really understand equality. He thinks we don’t understand how to help our neighbors (or others) so he is going to mandate it. As usual, he thinks by forcing his view of “equality” on us it will make everything perfect (how did that work out for you Mr. Obama in the Middle East?)

The president is having HUD (the Department of Housing and Urban Development,) those same wonderful people who gave you “the projects,” “ghettos,” and “Section 8 housing” look at the inequities in various neighborhoods… neighborhoods that are mostly white, mostly black, mostly rich, mostly poor, and basically not diverse enough. Why? To implement forced equality.

President Obama wants to use billions of dollars in HUD grants as a carrot to cities to mix up the neighborhoods a bit more. You know, make adjustments in building codes and such to bring in more “diversity.” If you don’t, well then, your grant money just might disappear. I say we start in Beverly Hills, Brentwood, and Upper Manhattan. He and HUD are going to dictate how a neighborhood should look or else!

Here’s the deal… Mr. Obama will take away any and all incentives to better ones self. Why bother? Just let the government do it.

You don’t want to work harder to make more money? No problem! The government will force a living wage on employers. Don’t move up, the government will help.

Don’t look for a job that offers benefits. The government will help by forcing benefits on you and the American populous to pay for them. Take it easy… they got you covered!

Didn’t take advantage of government-issued birth control? No problem! The government’s got you covered with a government paid for abortion at a clinic near you. And if you just happen to be underage, no big deal. Your parents need not know.

Food stamps and welfare are just a form away! Fill it in and even you can get an EBT card. What’s that?! You have no ID? No problem! Just tell them how hard it was for you to get over the border at night and you’ll be quickly added to the welfare rolls.

If you’re one of those who just can’t seem to figure out how to move up and get yourself out of your neighborhood (let’s say, like Detroit) just sit tight. Obama and HUD are hatching up a plan to get you out.

The president feels that it’s unfair for people who might be sacrificing by working multiple jobs (rather than indulging in activities that blow their hard-earned cash) so they can move out of bad areas and into good areas should not be allowed to be the only ones who benefit. He thinks that if an area has been built up and has many “well-off” white folks that it’s just not right or fair. Blacks and other minorities should have the ability to move to those communities also.

Last I checked Mr. Prez they do! (Who’s stopping them?) Get another job, work hard, do better, and you can move to a better neighborhood. It’s how America works.

Poor Barry. He’s Not “Flexible” Enough For Putin.

Pity our poor, childish president.  Prior to Obama’s re-election he told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that after the election he would have more “flexibility” and could work more freely and successfully with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.  Obama is so stupid that he actually thought he could tame the savage nature of Putin. He was not only wrong, but he was dead wrong, as the former satellites of the Soviet Union are learning to their great regret.  Obama may have a long learning curve, but must it take eight years to learn the true nature of his adversaries?  Does this fool man have no knowledge of history?

 

So recently here stands our slow-learning Barry complaining about Putin’s evil actions and his obviously murderous plans for the future, and Obama looks like a complete rooky on the international stage.  The world laughs at our great nation, and Obama struts like the big-shot community organizer and rabble-rouser that he is in reality. He’s certainly not of the stature of a true international leader.

Will There Be Another American Revolution?

The number of Americans disgusted with the direction the nation is headed has been growing steadily over the past several years. And increasingly, abject frustration with the electoral process, which arguably has facilitated a fundamental transformation of America, leads a growing chorus calling for outright revolution. After all, the abuses of our own government far exceed what King George imposed on our revolutionary forebears.

declaration-of-independenceThose of us who treasure America as the land of the free and the home of the brave, see contemporary statists, those who are actively engaged in expanding centralized governmental authority at the expense of personal liberty, as adulterators and enemies of freedom.  They are “fundamentally transforming America” into a fiercely potent centralized government that was never intended for this republic; a fascist police state that, regulates, coerces, bullies, and spies on its citizens. In the past, they’ve done it surreptitiously, clandestinely, and dishonestly. Now, however, they do so blatantly and openly, yet classifying it as something else. The United States of America currently only slightly resembles the land of the free and home of the brave as founded and intended.

Another American RevolutionEven a cursory series of online searches reveals a growing chorus of classical-liberals calling for a “new revolution” against the tyranny of a federal government that resembles oligarchical fascism much more than the liberty-based republic we were given. Is such talk of a new revolution hyperbolic, or real? And if there was such a revolution, what might it look like? It could possibly resemble the plot of a new book, “Shadow Revolution: Code Name Operation Achilles,” by award winning columnist, Bill Corbett, authored under the pseudonym, Will Edwinson. This is a major rewrite of his 2001 book, “Halcyon Revolution.”

As Bill describes it, “The self-reliant producers try for years to elect people to government that would stem the tide of the Progressive movement, but to no avail. The Progressives always manage to win, and the trend continues toward socialism. Titus Coppard and the revolutionists have finally had enough, and they start a quiet shadow (underground) revolution. The goal is for all the self-reliant like-minded people to exodus to eighteen Western states, get jobs, start businesses, get involved in politics to gain ideological control of the respective legislatures; and on a pre-determined date, secede in one block from the union of the United States and form the new nation of the Free States of North America.”

Will Edwinson PhotoThe new nation will be established according to the original Constitution; a republic of limited government ensuring individual liberty as the U.S. was founded 226 years ago.

For lovers of liberty, the speeches and teachings of Coppard, a fictional yet inspiring protagonist, are like reading Jefferson and the founding fathers. He explains the rationale behind the revolution. “The whole purpose of establishing this new nation is to encourage people to pursue their personal happiness by being as productive as they can. We will do this by cutting the shackles of regulation that prevent that productivity. We want new citizens to migrate to our country, but not for the purpose of a dole. If they are expecting that, they had better stay where they are, because, here, there will be no dole. Our credo will be that of President John F. Kennedy when he said in his inauguration speech: ‘Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.’”

When addressing the economics behind his plan, he sounds like Milton Friedman, “We hope to abolish all taxes on income and capital; or at least, make them minimal. We feel that those taxes are counter-productive. People should be allowed to keep all of what they earn and accumulate and be free to dispose of it as they see fit. We will have poor people, true. As Jesus said, ‘The poor will always be with us’, but we intend to retrain the mind-set of the citizens. We will work to instill in their belief system that it is not the responsibility of government to care for the poor, but rather, this should be left up to private citizens, churches, and charities.”

And he embodies the federalist ideals of James Madison when he explains, “There will be no mandates imposed on the several states by the federal government because we respect states’ rights as spelled out in the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution.”

Shadow Revolutrin Front CoverSome of Coppard’s suggestions for the Free States of North America will ring true regardless of ideological orientation on the political spectrum. Who could argue with a competency requirement for those seeking public office, or with term limits? As he explains, “Everyone running for president, vice-president, and service in the Congress—and I emphasize service, not career—must pass a comprehensive examination testing his knowledge and understanding of the Constitution in order to qualify him to run for office.” He then goes on to explain the term limits on congressmen and senators that would prevent the level of cronyism and amalgamation of power we see today.

Government is not the only difference in the new country. The basic culture must change as well. “Someone once said the miracle of America originally brought forth a breed of human being that was noted for its desire to do the right thing because common decency and common sense dictated common standards of conduct. Because of this, each generation rose higher and higher on the ladder of civilization with genuine and lasting results. We intend to recapture that philosophy. Basic honesty will be the governing rule,” Coppard explains. And while it may sound idyllic in today’s context, at one time it defined American culture.

For those of us who embrace the founding principles and documents of our republic, this story is one of reflection as well as possible inspiration for the future. After all, the classical-liberal ideals embedded into our founding documents made of us a great nation. We could be great yet again by returning to them. The existential question for each of us to ponder, is whether it will come at the ballot box, or from a new revolution?

Marco Rubio Scares The Desperate Leftists

Hillary may have illegally used her own e-mail server and left top secret government memos exposed to hacking from the Russians and Chinese, and Bill Clinton may have lied under oath about the abuse of a young woman on his staff while he was President of the United States, but Marco Rubio is the object of real and sincere scorn because he had 3 traffic violations over two decades. And then consider that Rubio, like most Americans who aren’t rich from suckling at the government teat and who don’t reside in the D.C. area, has had money-budgeting concerns, a mortgage on his home, and when he had some extra money he actually bought a fishing boat so he could take the family out on the water on a pleasant afternoon (and I’ll bet the boat is not named “Monkey Business”).

Really? Is this all they’ve got?  The Libs are going completely insane in their fear for the next election and their not only weak, but totally dishonest and idiotic candidate in Hillary Clinton. And when one considers HRC and the obvious destruction done to the nation by Obama which they are no longer able to sweep under the carpet, one can understand their fear.

Or maybe the Dems are practicing their brand of anti-Hispanic hate with the absolutely unworthy and childish anti-Rubio investigations.  After all, they have a history in this regard with their flagrant hate and repeated attacks on George Bush’s Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales.  The next year promises to be fun to watch as the liberals go off the cliff.

And above all keep in mind that Rubio didn’t relocate or license his fishing boat in a neighboring state in order to save on taxes, like the great liberal John Kerry did with his multi-million dollar yacht.

Rick Santorum: The Barry Goldwater of the 21st Century

Barry Goldwater has the unique distinction of being the most important loser in modern politics. After his failed 1964 bid for the White House, his conservative platform worked its way into a position of dominance in the Republican party, eventually leading to the landslide victory of Ronald Reagan.

The American political landscape is frequently defined in terms of pendulum-like swings between dominance of left and right ideologies and attitudes towards government.

And, after milquetoast nominee after milquetoast nominee running the primary gambit on the right, it’s time to ask, has the next Goldwater moment come?

The 2012 election cycle saw the unlikely rise of former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum from dark horse socially conservative candidate to winner of the all-important Iowa caucus. Santorum, a social conservative, thought subject to a media interrogation that would have made Torquemada proud, would go on to win 11 primary states before dropping out to attend to the health of his youngest daughter.

Could Santorum have ultimately gone on to win the election? It is, of course, impossible to say. However, this may be an ancillary detail to a larger political truth.

Where Santorum stood alone as a true conservative in the 2012 race, he is joined this cycle by a bevy of right-wing candidates, representing exponential growth in conservative messaging compared to the last cycle.

Where the trend in 2012 was towards moderation and centricity, ostensibly to earn the all-important independent vote, candidates this cycle are actually scrambling to produce conservative credentials, or spin their actions into something that looks to be anti-establishment.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz labels the Constitution as his standard on his campaign website. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul claims to be running to “restore liberty to ourselves and future generations.” Florida Sen. Marco Rubio highlights the family as the most important part of society. Jeb Bush, though not an official candidate, positions his Right to Rise PAC as an opportunity “to move up the income ladder based on merit, hard work and earned success.”

All these are examples of traditional conservative messaging. And, where, even as recently as the 2014 midterm elections, messages such as these were labelled as being too divisive and a danger to Republican victory, they are now becoming the early standard of the 2016 race.

Santorum, then, really ought to be looked at as a Goldwater for the 21st century. Where his 2012 rival candidates sought to distance themselves from conservative “extremism,” Santorum braved a faux media storm and rode an unlikely wave to early success.

True, Santorum differs from Goldwater in two significant ways. He did not lose, he withdrew, and he did so at a much earlier stage of the electoral cycle.

However, the fact that some part of his messaging resonated with enough of the GOP’s voting populace is significant. It was a channel for the frustrations for conservatives in the populace at a time when the GOP and the media told them they were “whacko birds.”

The 2014 election was a wave for the right. Yet, despite a clarion voicing of desire to see government adopt more limited stances, the Republican leadership has continued to blunder their way through legislation, continuing to disparage their conservative members and ultimately frittering away every advantage they’ve had.

At this early stage of the game, especially now that the advent of the Internet and the Citizens United decision have made it easier for average people to participate and influence elections, conservatism seems poised to dominate the presidential debate, making another 1980s style right-wing victory seem likely.

Rick Santorum, rather than being laughed off as an unserious candidate without policy distinction, should be given some credit in helping to make this possible.

Bystander Nation

Savvas & Amy Savopoulos: RIP

Savvas & Amy Savopoulos: RIP

For all intents and purposes the Savopoulos family were good, civic–minded residents of Washington, DC.

Savvas, and his wife Amy, were active in charitable causes and contributed $51,800 to both Republican and Democrat candidates since 2006. The Daily Mail reports that even though Savopoulos was very wealthy he didn’t surround himself with bodyguards or other security and the family didn’t hesitate to open the door when someone knocked.

When you live near Vice President Joe “Shotgun” Biden in a well–patrolled neighborhood, what could possibly go wrong?

In this instance, everything.

Today Savopoulos, Amy, 10–year–old Phillip and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa are all dead after someone opened the door to their murderer, ex–con Daron Wint. Over an 18–hour period Wint took the family hostage before torturing, stabbing to death and then setting their bodies on fire.

What’s most striking about this is the sheer number of people who went to the Savopoulos’ home while they were hostages or had unusual telephone contact with the family during and then did absolutely nothing.

The timeline shows there were many opportunities for someone to call the police, yet no one did.

The pizza guy is off the hook. He delivers two pizzas about 9PM Wednesday. He rings the bell and leaves the boxes on the porch. The money was waiting for him and no doubt rich people had asked for stranger things, so he leaves without incident.

Next Savopoulos calls the other housekeeper, Nelitza Gutierrez and leaves a strange, contradictory message, which is understandable when your family is held hostage. He tells Gutierrez his wife is going out, but then says she’s sick and Figueroa is staying overnight, so don’t come tomorrow. He concludes by saying Figueroa’s cellphone is dead and they don’t have a charger for it.

Gutierrez thinks that’s strange, but she doesn’t call Figueroa’s husband. Instead she lets the matter drop.

Early the Thursday morning Savopoulos makes a “flurry” of calls to his banker, accountant and personal assistant wanting immediate access to $40,000 cash. This should have set off alarm bells, particularly since Savopoulos wants his assistant to deliver the 40K to his home and leave it in the garage next to the recycling.

Even Joe Biden could tell this is suspicious and out of character, but again no one calls the police or even insists that Savopoulos meet them to take the money.

Forty thousand dollars is dropped off at the Savopoulos home like it’s another Domino’s pizza.

Later that morning Figueroa goes to the house to find his wife. Although he feels someone is inside, there is no answer when he rings the bell. Still curious, he starts peering into windows. And wouldn’t you know it, his cell rings and it’s Savopoulos saying Amy has gone to the hospital and Veralicia is with her.

The house feels wrong, the timing of the call is wrong and no word from his wife is wrong, but there is no indication Figueroa tried to call Gutierrez to see what’s up.

The last contact with anyone outside the home is a text at 9:30 to Gutierrez that reads: “I am making sure you do not come today.” This is her second bite at the apple. Gutierrez tries to call back and sends a reply but again no answer.

None of these individuals had the entire picture, but each of them had enough pieces for concern. They saw something, but failed to say anything.

But that’s the way society functions in the left’s Bystander Nation. Let the authorities and experts handle it, while you mind your own business. Individual responsibility is something for cowboys from Oklahoma.

If employees in the Bethesda, MD Apple store overhear a woman begging for her life in the adjacent Lululemon store and do nothing as she’s stabbed 330 times, how can we expect DC residents to call 9–1–1 before ransom money is dropped off?

In the left’s social paradise it takes a village to raise a child, but it requires only a handful to let a family die.

Even if Savopoulos had been concerned about family safety and applied for a permit to carry a gun, chances are he’d have been denied. Police Chief Cathy Lanier requires a “good reason” before she’ll issue and concern doesn’t qualify.

The good news is if the two surviving daughters want to apply on their 21st birthday, chances are good Lanier will relent.

Is Trans-black the New Hotness?

Rachel DolezalTransvestite may have been the original “trans” big thing, but as the liberal semantic confusion wheel spins we’ve quickly turned transgender into an every day term and transabled is now “so five minutes ago.” The new hotness for the definition-starved left might just be trans-black.

KXLY in Spokane reported that an NAACP president appears to have lied on an application to a citizen police ombudsman commission:

Rachel Dolezal serves as chair of the independent commission, in addition to her work as an adjunct faculty member at Eastern Washington University and president of the NAACP local chapter. On her application to serve on the commission, she identified herself as African-American.

So is Rachel white or black?

Earlier this year, a photo was posted on the NAACP Facebook page showing Rachel with a black man described as her father. So she’s black right? Umm.. maybe:

But public records, including Dolezal’s own birth certificate, list her biological parents as Ruthanne and Lawrence Dolezal of Montana. The Dolezals told KXLY Thursday that Rachel is their biological daughter and that they are both white.

Ok, she’s white then .. we think… sorta? To rid Spokane residents of the confusion, KXLY decided to just ask her:

“Ma’am, I was wondering if your dad really is an African-American man,” Humphrey asked.

“I don’t understand the question,” Dolezal answered. “I did tell you [that man in the picture] is my dad.”
“Are your parents white?” Humphrey asked. At that point, Dolezal removed the microphone, ended the interview and walked away.

Now, it’s clear. She’s a trans-black. The reporter may not have been introduced to the progressive world of devolving definitions and their creation of entirely new realities.

Rachel may have gained her sense of the black experience in Montana. Somewhere along the way to Spokane she gained her new black dad and decided that she too is black.

Rachel is black like Bruce Jenner is a woman. To the left, simply pretending to be something is good enough to become that thing (a bad perm helps or lots of surgeries in Jenner’s case.)

Did her self-identified race-change event help her with her job at the University or the leadership position in the NAACP? Did Rachel gain any benefit from minority-favoring selection criteria in these positions or previous endeavors?

Rachel is a product of will. She says she’s black so she is .. a white-born trans-black… or something. Just ask her.

The Corrupt Obama Administration: Lying For The Faith

Media Justice for Christie Political CartoonOne of the main principles of the very religious and so very principled radical Muslims is that their religion permits them to lie (or kill or torture or enslave) infidels in order to further their religious goals.  This is the principle of “lying for the faith”. The Obama administration is following these same guidelines with its various recent scandals (Fast and Furious, AP, Rosen, Benghazi, IRS, Immigration, no plan to eliminate ISIS, etc.): they are lying about what they have been doing in order to protect the “religion” of radical progressive/socialism at which altar they worship.

 

When Lois Lerner (IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations, accused of denying conservative groups tax exemption for political purposes) arrogantly sticks her nose in the air and refuses to testify to a Congressional investigating committee and says she’s done nothing wrong, she is morally correct in this statement, because for leftist/progressives it’s not wrong to illegally deny conservative Americans their Constitutional and lawful rights as citizens.  Likewise when Hillary arrogantly turns her nose up and asks “What difference, at this point, does it make..” about the four Americans who died on her watch in Benghazi or when she lies about her email server or what cell phones she used as Secretary of State.  These fool people, who are currently in charge of controlling the federal government (or in Hillary’s case lying to get Obama’s job and continue raping America) under Barack Insane Obama, firmly believe this tripe.  They really believe they are morally superior and that their actions to deny conservatives and Republicans any rights under the law are justified.

 

Likewise with Douglas Shulman (former IRS Commissioner) who visited the White House 157 times but refuses to explain to a Congressional committee why the visits were made, while he sarcastically, arrogantly and disrespectfully makes an insulting remark as part of his non-response to that question. These dedicated leftists’ actions and attitudes follow the edict of lying for the faith of liberalism and show why American leftists can behave casually when breaking the law, or destroying the economy with radical environmental regulations or risking attack by reducing national security precautions.  They are practicing a religious belief of Liberalism/environmentalism against their enemies (American conservatives).  And they have the additional protection of the President who was re-elected in part by their illegal acts.

 

Before our pleasant lives are destroyed by Barack Insane Obama and his henchmen, our legislators must repeal Obamacare, fire the IRS as a group, implement a FAIR tax to replace the current income tax, repeal the legislation that enabled the vile Environmental Protection Agency and then impeach Obama for the transgressions of his administration that would get the CEO of a private company removed from office and prosecuted.
