Dying on the Sidewalk of Nancy Pelosi's Sanctuary City

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

Jeannie DeAngelis   "House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) once said that regardless of legal status, “north and south in this hemisphere… we are all Americans.” Based on that absurd statement, it stands to reason that Nancy Pelosi would be the Grand Diva of the sanctuary city that gave 45-year-old illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez asylum from deportation.
"In the past, Pelosi also warned America that if Republicans stopped ObamaCare funding for abortion ‘women would die on the floor.’" . . .

California lawmaker moves to crack down on sanctuary cities in wake of murder
. . . "State Sen. Jeff Stone, a Republican, announced Tuesday he is drafting a bill that would require all California cities and counties to fully cooperate with federal immigration officials. " . . .

The human cost of Obama’s immigration policy
"Though Barack Obama was not in San Francisco on July 1, he was just as culpable in the murder of 31 year old Katie Steinle as the man who pulled the trigger: a five-time deported illegal with seven prior felony convictions." . . .

Our silly society 7/7/2015

Professor: Minn. state flag offensive because it shows white man working   " The stupid just got a little bit deeper.  According to Judith Harrington, an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, the Minnesota state flag is offensive because — wait for it — it displays a white man working."
. . . " Forget the Confederate battle flag.  Now we need to remove all references to white people."

Choosing Misery: The Culture of Victimhood and Ingratitude . . . "Not long ago, I happened upon an article on society’s newest scourge – one more aggressive than a microaggression, more fearsome than a raging Bull Connor, and more phallic than a good five-cent cigar – creeping sexism." . . .

SF Shooter Claims Accident, Knew SF Was Sanctuary City . . . "We suspect sanctuary cities have caused a lot more deaths in recent years than any Confederate flags. " . .

CNN’s Jake Tapper Blasts Liberal Media Critics: “I Can’t Help It If The Entire Democratic Field Is White” 

" CNN anchor Don Lemon recently floated the idea of re-thinking the Jefferson Memorial, dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, since he was a slave owner."

Hillary Campaign Poetry Slam Celebrates Malcolm X, Racial Violence, Transgender Activism 

 Don't hold your breath waiting for Macy's and NBC to cut ties with S.F. over sanctuary city murderer
"Companies that specialize in self-righteous boycotts realize that a few words from Donald Trump are much worse than policies opening up a city to murderers that repeatedly commit felonies and violate our borders." . . .

The Idea Of Defeating Ideologies With Ideas Is A Bad Idea

"President Obama today made yet another statement that is sure to follow him for some time. There can be little doubt the President wanted this line to go down as part of his legacy. Just as there is small doubt that the opposition will pin it to him as a negative. Whatever the case, that the statement is completely false is without question, beyond any semblance of doubt."
. . .
 "It is all too easy to ask which better ideas caused Adolf Hitler to blow his own brains out, of course. That guns absolutely defeated the Nazis, that guns were absolutely integral to the soldier in war, should go without saying. But it is also true that Hitler was quite literally defeated by a gun. One in his own hand, placed to his own temple, his own finger on the trigger. That was not a triumph of ideas, though better ideas certainly came of it. It was a triumph of violence. Weapons. War. Enemies are defeated in this way. They always have been.

"And while Nazis aren't the only example, they are definitely the best. Another one a person might think of is slavery. Remember that war? It's kind of been in the news lately." . . .


How to vote in Mexico

Putting Greece a slippery slope

With Greece, We're Watching The Revenge Of The Debtors   "Socialism: Indebted nations of the world are applauding the "Oxi" vote against "austerity" in Greece not so much as a victory for the common man, but because they have plans to default on the billions they owe. Brace yourself." . . .
. . .
"Investors around the world have long worried that a default on Greek debt would bring about a bankruptcy contagion that would spread throughout the world and crash international financial markets.
"But now investors may face something worse." . . .

Media Proclaim Obama’s Glory While Faith in American Institutions Skids to Record Lows

Political Cartoons by Glenn McCoy
Big Government  "If Jimmy Carter is “history’s greatest monster,” as deemed by the good people of Springfield in “The Simpsons,” then President Obama is “history’s most deluded jester.”

"A considerable majority of Americans tell pollsters that the country is headed in the wrong direction and most blame this president. Faith in American institutions such as the courts, police, and the federal government have skidded to record lows.

"And about the only thing blacks and whites agree upon anymore is that race relations have gotten worse under our first “post-racial” president.

"Yet last week, President Obama was crowned one of the greatest presidents of all time. He was hailed as a hero of uncluttered vision and fearless justice. He shattered the doldrums that have dogged every president’s second term in modern American times.

"The media was in absolute rapture." . . .

Full Disclosure? CNN Anchor Who’ll Interview Hillary Recently Attended Clinton Aide’s Wedding

Mediaite    "So here’s an interesting factoid for those interested in tracking the incessant D.C.-centric co-mingling of journalists and politicians: Brianna Keilar, the CNN reporter who’ll perform the first sit-down interview with Hillary Clinton, recently attended the wedding of the Democratic candidate’s grassroots director.

"During the wedding of Adam Parkhomenko (Clinton’s current Director of Grassroots Engagement) and Kirby Hoag (Ready for Hillary’s deputy operations director), a former staffer tweeted a photograph of the journalists in attendance. Keilar, who will interview Clinton on Tuesday, is second from the right:

Communists Don’t Like Him? NY Times Gives Rubio Candidacy More Help

Jonathan S. Tobin  "Do the publishers of the New York Times secretly want Marco Rubio to be elected president? The answer to that question is, of course not. The left-wing and partisan Democratic slant of the Grey Lady’s news coverage (not to mention its equally biased and partisan editorial page) in recent years places Rubio squarely in the category of a candidate the paper wishes to stop at all costs. Hence, the series of background stories about Cruz that bore the unmistakable trademarks of hit pieces intended to chip away at his image. But unfortunately for the Times, their previous stories on Rubio— which focused on the speeding tickets he and his wife had received or the fishing boat that was wrongly labeled a “luxury speed boat” — generated an unintended reaction. It wasn’t just that the tickets reinforced his youthful image. The focus on trivial charges was viewed as biased journalism that generated sympathy for the Rubio candidacy among Republicans and seemed to validate his status as a candidate liberals feared." . . .

This southern boy explains the Confederate Flag Issue perfectly

"Something has been weighing pretty heavily on me the past few days. I have had a few small discussions on the issue, but haven’t gotten too far into it. I wanted to share this, not for attention, but because I thought it needed to be done.

"It’s no big secret to my friends that I love to hunt, fish, camp and do pretty much anything outdoors. I have always considered myself to be a country boy stuck in the city. One of the ways that I used to show pride for my lifestyle was wearing t-shirts with the Confederate/ Rebel flag on them. In high school, I even had a bumper sticker on my truck that read “Keep It Flying”. I had grown up seeing the flag regularly, and although I had seen it used in negative ways on occasion, I chose to accept the “Heritage not Hate” and “Pride not Prejudice” interpretation of the flag. If you had asked me back then, I would’ve told you that it was a symbol of southern pride and had nothing to do with racism.

"I was raised pretty close to downtown Nashville and grew up with kids of all races with all kinds of backgrounds. I played baseball, basketball and football on teams where sometimes whites were minorities. I am very thankful for this. As I continue to grow and learn, I realize that we tend to fear things just because we don’t understand them. Because of where and how I was raised, I never feared people of other color or background. I was able to realize that we are all the same underneath. I have had white friends, black friends, Asian friends, Middle Eastern friends, Latino friends, Christian friends, Muslim friends, Atheist friends, etc. Thankfully, I have never had a racist bone in my body."

Arab allies looking anywhere but to America for friendship

The world grows more and more dangerous around us with our allies splitting from a cowardly America and this President concerns himself with rainbow lighting, Confederate flags and importing Democrats

. . . "That’s a total reversal of one of the Cold War’s major coups, when, almost overnight, the Soviet-dependent Egyptian army turned to US-made planes and tanks in the late 1970s.

"Cairo also switched allegiances. After Washington brokered an Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty, the most populous Arab country turned into a trusted American ally.

"And now we’re beginning to see a reversal. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi suspects that the United States no longer has his back, so he’s turning east.

"At least Sisi has some memories of being part of the Soviet bloc. The Saudis don’t.

"Riyadh has depended on American protection for more than half a century, returning the favor by guaranteeing relative stability in global energy markets (except for a spell during the Carter years).

"Yet now the Saudis, too, are seeking Russia’s friendship." . . .  Via Jammie Wearing Fools

Is there nobody in media, politics and academia that is sick of this man's nimcompoopery?

Obama on ISIS: “Ideologies are not defeated with guns, they are defeated by better ideas”  . . . "This is the sort of thing you say when you’re trying to break it to people that victory in the new war won’t come soon, and may not come ever. It’s the foreign policy equivalent of another of Obama’s favorite sayings, the old leftist bromide about being on “the wrong side of history”: The enemy’s backwardness is plain and our moral superiority is obvious, so ultimate triumph is assured even in the teeth of immediate defeat. All I could think of while watching this was those photos you see online sometimes of Afghanistan or Iran circa 1960, with all the women in blouses and skirts, and photos of the same two countries today, with women in head coverings or even full burqas. Better ideas don’t always win. Especially if they’re defended by weak leadership.". . . 

"However superior our ideas might be, O’s strategy, like it or not, is to run out the clock until 2017 and leave it to the next poor schmuck to figure something out with ISIS."

And this feckless man will make speeches ridiculing the next administration, blaming him - or her - for ruining the stable climate he "passed on".
We saw how Obama has treated President Bush all these years and can predict the man's future actions by his well-documented character.  TD

Don’t like Hillary’s press pen? Blame the media.

"On Saturday, the internet exploded after Hillary Clinton’s campaign lasso’d reporters covering an Independence Day parade into an actual, mobile pen. It was a terrible visual for the Clinton machine, and as Aleister pointed out yesterday, revealed yet another crack in the facade hiding an operation that is barely holding itself together.

"Yesterday’s State of the Union panel roundly lampooned the entire disaster, but it was S.E. Cupp who stood up and pointed out what many of our commenters have been saying for some time now—this is the media’s fault.

. . . "Finally, a visual aid to accompany the cold hard fact that  Hillary Clinton’s handlers are terrified of the media.  Whether it’s her or her people making these decisions is irrelevant; what matters is that the media hasn’t done its job with regards to this particular candidate." . . .
