We edge closer to nuclear war and this president renames a mountain

Michael Ramirez Cartoon
Renaming Mount McKinley Obama's Insult To Competence " President Obama says he's changing the name of Alaska's Mt. McKinley to Denali. Given President McKinley's record on racial healing, fiscal discipline, global power and disaster response, Obama's got some timing.

"Ohioans were right to take President Obama's unilateral changing of the name of the 20,200-foot peak to Mount Denali as an insult.



President Barack Obama will change the name of Mount McKinley, the top of which is the country's highest point, back to its traditional Alaskan title, Denali.

"Denali comes from the indigenous Athabaskan language and means 'high one', also the name of the national park surrounding the mountain. 
"Russian settlers in the region called it Bolshaya Gora, or 'big mountain', before Alaska was sold to the US in 1867. "

 McKinley’s Greatest Monument   "It’s a mystery to us where President Obama or his interior secretary, Sally Jewell, gets the authority to rename in Alaska a mountain whose name was ratified by Congress a century ago as McKinley. We can understand the Democratic Party’s interest, in that McKinley, a Republican, was a particularly fine President. He was, moreover, one of four presidents felled by an assassin. We can understand, too, the sentiments of Alaska, whose legislature has wanted to change the name. Where, though, does the president come off doing this by fiat?
. . . 
 "Maybe some day a Republican president will restore to John Fitzgerald Kennedy International Airport the name of Idlewild, which is the name us native New Yorkers use for the airport (Idlewild is still a permitted reference for the airport in the “Reporters Handbook and Manual of Style of the New York Sun”). We could see the logic of it in an age of hyper-sensitivity to local sentiments. But we would object were a president to simply rename the airport after Congress had been asked and decided not to act." . . .

Officers' Letter to Congress on Iran Deal Is Not a One-Day Story

"Out of respect to their experience, expertise, service, and commitment, we owe them a serious hearing.
"This is not a one-day PR story.  It is a profound and critical moment in our nation's history.  Every concerned citizen needs to read and share the letter with others.  This is urgent.  There is not a moment to be lost.
"Military officers use understated language in public, but I can be blunt.
"Here is my blunt summary of their letter:
 
American Thinker   "The most dangerous presidency in American history is now rushing to its climax.  This is the lethal moment that Bush and Cheney warned us about – the catastrophic moment when a fanatical Armageddon regime in Tehran will be guaranteed a path to nuclear weapons.  Some military experts are convinced they already have them.

"The Bush administration made many mistakes, but it was absolutely on target about the danger of terrorists armed with nukes.  For rational actors, nuclear weapons are a last-ditch defense, because in a nuclear exchange, everybody loses.  Irrational and suicide-preaching regimes are different, just as Jim Jones was different from your Junior League Club.

"Today, Obama actually wants to give the most destructive weapons in the world to Iran's genocidal regime.
He has simply switched sides." . . . 

 "Military officers save their bluntest language for private  conversations, and they should.

"But please be aware that in the eight points above, almost 200 retired flag officers of the United States have essentially accused American politicians and high officials of treason, as defined by the U.S. Constitution as "aiding and abetting" the enemies of the United States in time of war (US Constitution, Article III, Section 3).

"They came as close as possible without actually using the word." Read more

Time to resurrect 'Un-American Activities'?

James Longstreet  . . . "I was piqued by Jorge Ramos and his apparent pride in being an American citizen, yet also seemingly having a warm spot for his former employer La Raza and groups that cheer the “reconquest” of the American Southwest by citizens of a foreign nation.  Imagine any immigrant from another country promoting a takeover of another section of our nation.  “For what purpose” is the question that leaps to mind. 

"These groups are engaged in activities that could be termed “un-American” by some, or maybe by many.  There are other activities, upon examination, that might just qualify for “un-American.”

"Encouraging the creation of “sanctuary cities” is nothing more than creating a shelter within the borders of our country and contrary to the law of the nation.  Is it not un-American to encourage the violation of the laws of the country, and is it not geometrically a greater un-American activity when the persons doing so are federal officials sworn to an oath contrary to their actions?" . . .

What GOP Can Learn From Trump: Straight Talk, Common Sense

"The two signature legislative reform laws that the Democrats passed during the Obama years — ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank — have failed."
 Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel
Investor's Business Daily   "Instead of wringing their hands about Donald Trump's intrusion and romp through their party, Republican candidates serious about leading America in the 21st century should take some cues and cards from the Trump hand and see if they can raise him on policy substance.

"Trump may be brash and inconsistent with some conservative values. But his candor about making America great again has enormous appeal, and his straight talk wins accolades and distinguishes him from the political class.

"Perhaps most importantly, Trump's natural disposition and ready willingness to break out of the straitjacket of political correctness is as refreshing as it is overdue and vital to redirect national priorities.

"The very concept of making America great is now foreign to a Democratic Party obsessed with race, gender and class identity, equal outcomes and expanding entitlement programs. This, together with the Democrats' lack of new ideas on creating jobs and growing the economy, provide an opening that Republicans ought to be able to drive a truck through." . .

The execution of Deputy Darren Goforth

 “I’m tired of people calling these black activists,” he added. “They’re not black activists. This is black slime and it needs to be eradicated from American society. I need every law abiding person in America to stand up and start pushing back against this slime.”     Milwaukee County, WI Sheriff David Clarke

USA Today
Suspect in ambush of Houston-area deputy held without bond . . . " 'He runs up behind Deputy Goforth and puts the gun to the back of his head and shoots. Deputy Goforth hits the ground and then he continues to unload his gun, shooting repeatedly into the back of Deputy Goforth," Anderson said.
"Goforth was shot 15 times and a witness saw the shooting, Anderson said. She added that the shell casings match the .40-caliber Smith and Wesson handgun found at Miles' home." . . .

Sheriff David Clarke: Barack Obama Started This War On Police (Video) "August 29th, 2015 • Sheriff David Clarke placed blame for the execution of Harris County deputy Darren Goforth squarely upon President Barack Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder. The Milwaukee County Sheriff said that Obama and Holder laid the groundwork for "this war on police" by supporting 'activists' who have disparaged law enforcement based upon a set of lies."

Whatever could have inspired the point-blank murder of a white sheriff's deputy?   "Cops in Houston, Texas are blaming the increasingly violent Black Lives Matter movement for the unprovoked killing Friday of a uniformed white sheriff's deputy allegedly committed by a black man who snuck up on the officer without saying a word and fired a gun repeatedly into his body until he was dead." . . .

Media Reacts To Hillary’s Terrorist Comments

. . . "Hillary Clinton stirred up a hornets nest with her comparison of her GOP rivals to terrorists:

“ 'Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world—but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States,” Clinton said.

"On Morning Joe today, the panel discussed Hillary’s comments:
"Host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe Joe Scarborough lambasted Hillary Clinton for comparing her GOP rivals to terrorists, calling the remarks “gutter politics at its worst” designed to distract from her email scandal.

“It was disgusting. It was absolutely disgusting,” Scarborough said. “Hillary Clinton saying that somebody who is pro-life– I mean, let’s tell the truth; she wanted us to talk about this. She wanted to throw a bright shiny object out there, so they don’t talk about the email scandal.”

“ 'And so she has to be so hyperbolic and insulting and quite frankly just — it’s gutter politics at its worst to compare people to radical terrorists that cut off people’s heads and blow up grandmoms,” he said.

“ 'It’s not all right. And we’ve seen by reporting what these terrorists do to young girls, the sexual slavery is absolutely appalling. And what Hillary Clinton did is compare somebody who is pro-life — which is close to 50% of Americans — to radical terrorists.”
 "Furthermore, Scarborough thinks it was planned all along:
“You know what she was doing during the most disgusting part?” Scarborough said. “She was reading notes. This was planned, and the campaign said she has no plans to apologize and now she’s accusing Republicans of twisting her words.”
"Joe’s theory is that Hillary and her team did this on purpose in order to distract attention away from her problems with her email and a looming FBI investigation. See the video:"


What Does the Modern Malleability of Gender and Race Mean for the Future of Affirmative Action?

The DNA-derived color of one’s skin — not the content of one’s character — usually alone qualified one for affirmative action. If Shaun King or Rachel Dolezal can become black simply by asserting that they are black, are they then eligible for special minority advantages?

Caitlyn Jenner at the Espy Awards, July 15, 2015. (Kevin Winter/Getty)

"In the present postmodern world, we are told that there is no such thing as a biologically distinct gender. Instead, gender is now socially constructed. It can be defined by the individual in almost any way he or she sees fit.

"In the old days, many clinical psychologists would have believed that Caitlyn Jenner — who first came to fame as Olympian Bruce Jenner — is experiencing a well-chronicled psychological state known as transvestism, or the innate pleasure in wearing the clothes and assuming the manners and appearance of the opposite sex.

"Jenner, however, identifies as transgendered. But even if the term is new, the condition is not. References to people acting or dressing as if they were members of the opposite sex — or somewhere in between — were commonly found in the works of ancient authors such as Catullus and Petronius. The difference is that the Greeks and Romans saw it as a psychosexual condition, while today’s postmoderns insist that the transgendered have assumed a self-constructed and genuinely new sexual identity.

"Have they really?" . . .

. . . "Led by conservative activist and talk show host Glenn Beck, more than 20,000 people chanting “All Lives Matter” marched the historic civil rights route from Kelly Ingram Park to Birmingham City Hall this morning.

“ 'It’s about taking our church out in the streets,” Beck said. He said marchers came from as far away as China, Dubai and the Netherlands.

"Actor Chuck Norris, a conservative activist known for his martial arts, action movies and TV show “Walker, Texas Ranger,” marched about two rows behind Beck. Alveda King, a niece of civil rights activist the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., marched in the front row. Bishop Jim Lowe, pastor of the predominantly black Guiding Light Church in Birmingham, co-organized the march with Beck and marched with him at the front. As a child, Lowe attended Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, where the march started, a headquarters church for the civil rights movement in Birmingham. Lowe and his sisters were in the church when a KKK bomb blew up the church and killed four little girls on Sept. 15, 1963." . . .

What do you think when Miley Cyrus declares herself 'pansexual'?

 
American Thinker  . . . "I think liberals are just trying to be stylish and think up new names for things.  There are heterosexuals, and there are homosexuals.  You can call homosexuals pan, or fluid, or this, or that, but it all amounts to the same thing.

"Personally, given her appetites, I think Miley Cyrus should be called not pansexual, but a pandemic sexual, if she's "changing her style" every two weeks.  She talks about it as casually as one would talk about eating Italian one night and Chinese the next, which shows how confused she is and why we shouldn't teach kids in school to be confused like her." . . .

Over 200 Ex-Generals And Admirals Say Iran Deal Risks War

"Their missive blasts virtually everything that Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry assert about the consequences of the deal."

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

Investor's Business Daily "Iran Deal: At least 214 former generals and admirals signed a letter warning that President Obama's Iran nuclear pact could bring war. It counters less than a quarter of that number publicly supporting the deal.

"President Obama claims that the opponents of his surrender to Iran are neocon warmongers, "the same people who argued for the war in Iraq."

"But the 214 and counting retired military brass who signed an open letter to the leaders of both parties in the two houses of Congress, urging rejection of the agreement, belie that claim. And their emergence upends a previous letter supporting the deal, signed by a fraction of this number of generals.

"One of the signatories of that earlier letter, retired Joint Chiefs member Marine Gen. James Cartwright, was close to Obama and is now the subject of a federal investigation into whether he leaked national security secrets to the media.

"Those signing the letter opposing the deal include Air Force Gen. Lance Smith, a decorated combat fighter pilot who was NATO's Supreme Allied Commander for Transformation; Air Force Gen. James Davis, who was chief of staff for the Supreme Headquarters of the Allied Powers, Europe; and the organizer of the letter, decorated Navy combat aviator and former vice chief of naval operations, Adm.

Krauthammer: What six years of ‘reset’ have wrought. (That's "RESET" not "respect")

http://comicallyincorrect.com/2013/08/08/priorities-usa-putin-and-obama/
Charles Krauthammer

"On September 5, 2014, two days after President Obama visited Estonia to symbolize America’s commitment to its security, Russian agents crossed into Estonia and kidnapped an Estonian security official. Last week, after a closed trial, Russia sentenced him to 15 years.

"The reaction? The State Department issued a statement. The NATO secretary-general issued a tweet. Neither did anything. The European Union (reports the Wall Street Journal) said it was too early to discuss any possible action.
 
"Charles Krauthammer writes a weekly political column that runs on Fridays. View Archive
The timing of this brazen violation of NATO territory — immediately after Obama’s visit — is testimony to Vladimir Putin’s contempt for the American president. He knows Obama would do nothing. Why should he think otherwise?

" Putin breaks the arms embargo to Iran by lifting the hold on selling it S-300 missiles. Obama responds by excusing him, saying it wasn’t technically illegal and adding, with a tip of the hat to Putin’s patience: “I’m frankly surprised that it held this long.' ”. . .
Since the end of World War II, Russia has known that what stands in the way of westward expansion was not Europe, living happily in decadent repose, but the United States as guarantor of Western security. Obama’s naivete and ambivalence have put those guarantees in question.
It began with the reset button, ostentatiously offered less than two months after Obama’s swearing-in. Followed six months later by the unilateral American cancellation of the missile shield the Poles and the Czechs had agreed to install on their territory. Again, lest Putin be upset.
By 2012, a still clueless Obama mocked Mitt Romney for saying that Russia is “without question our No. 1 geopolitical foe,” quipping oh so cleverly: “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.” After all, he explained, “the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”
 

White House concedes new gun laws wouldn’t have stopped Va. gunman

 In this framegrab from video posted on Bryce Williams' Twitter account and Facebook page, Williams, whose real name is Vester Lee Flanagan II, aims a gun at WDBJ-TV television reporter Alison Parker as she conducts a live on-air interview in Moneta, Va., on Aug. 26, 2015. Moments later, Flanagan fatally shot Parker and cameraman Adam Ward and injured Vicki Gardner, who was being interviewed. The station said Flanagan was a former employee at WDBJ and appeared on air as Bryce Williams. (Vester Lee Flanagan II/Twitter via Associated Press)

 . . . "Law enforcement officials said gunman Vester Flanagan used a Glock handgun in Wednesday’s shooting, one of two that he bought last month. He legally bought two Glock model 19 handguns from a Virginia dealer.


"Mr. Earnest said the White House has never suggested that one piece of gun legislation would prevent all gun violence in the U.S. But Mr. Earnest said the proposal on background checks, which failed in the Senate in 2013, would prevent other shooting deaths around the country every day.

“There are similarly shocking acts of violence that don’t get as much attention that could be prevented … if Congress weren’t scared of the NRA,” he said.

"Flanagan opened fire on WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, during a live broadcast in Virginia on Wednesday, killing both of them. He later killed himself as police closed in.

"A third shooting victim, Vicki Gardner, who was being interviewed when Flanagan began shooting, was upgraded from stable to good condition Thursday in a hospital." . . .

American Silliness: Moonbats At U Of Tennessee Tells Staff To Stop Using ‘He’ And ‘She’, And Use ‘Xe’, ‘Zyr’ and ‘Xyr’ Instead


"Insanity, what do those terms even mean?

Via Daily Mail:
The University of Tennessee has told its staff and students to stop calling each other ‘he’, ‘she’, ‘him’ and ‘her’ – and to start referring to one another with terms like ‘xe’, ‘zir’ and ‘xyr’ instead.

The Knoxville branch of the public university sent a memo round to its members filled with unusual new parts of speech to avoid referring to anybody’s gender.

According to a gay rights official at the university, the new language regime will make the university ‘welcoming and inclusive’ and stop people feeling ‘marginalized’.

Peggy Noonan: America Is So in Play

WSJ
 "Donald Trump’s staying power in the polls reflects a change in the electorate only now coming into focus."
 GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump Campaigns in Iowa

. . . "Something is going on, some tectonic plates are moving in interesting ways. My friend Cesar works the deli counter at my neighborhood grocery store. He is Dominican, an immigrant, early 50s, and listens most mornings to a local Hispanic radio station, La Mega, on 97.9 FM. Their morning show is the popular “El Vacilón de la Mañana,” and after the first GOP debate, Cesar told me, they opened the lines to call-ins, asking listeners (mostly Puerto Rican, Dominican, Mexican) for their impressions. More than half called in to say they were for Mr. Trump. Their praise, Cesar told me a few weeks ago, dumbfounded the hosts. I later spoke to one of them, who identified himself as D.J. New Era. He backed Cesar’s story. “We were very surprised,” at the Trump support, he said. Why? “It’s a Latin-based market!”

“ 'He’s the man,” Cesar said of Mr. Trump. This week I went by and Cesar told me that after Mr. Trump threw Univision’s well-known anchor and immigration activist, Jorge Ramos, out of an Iowa news conference on Tuesday evening, the “El Vacilón” hosts again threw open the phone lines the following morning and were again surprised that the majority of callers backed not Mr. Ramos but Mr. Trump. Cesar, who I should probably note sees me, I sense, as a very nice establishment person who needs to get with the new reality, was delighted." . . .

"In other words: Inside the Beltway they think all of this anti-Washington stuff is a bunch of conservative fringe kooks.  Peggy went out there -- she's been talking to people, she's traveled the country -- and she's found out that every demographic under the sun is represented by these people who are unhappy with the leadership that they're getting in all of Washington.

Cop Killed Himself After His Name Was Linked To Ashley Madison, But He Was Falsely Named By Cop-Hating Group


"Cop Block has been active in Anonymous, Occupy and Black Lives Matter protests. We’ve seen the many lies of those protesters. This may have contributed to this man’s death.

Captain Michael Gorhum’s official San Antonio police email address was published in a purported list of Ashley Madison users on a website called Cop Block, which carries material highly critical of police.

On the day he learned that he was on the published list, and as colleagues also learned about his presence on the Cop Block site, he took his own life, shooting himself in the parking lot of the church where he worshiped with his wife and two children.

Dylann Roof and Vester Flanagan: Compare and Contrast

PowerLine"I agree with Hugh Hewitt that it is a mistake to pay attention to “manifestos” left behind by insane killers. It only encourages them. But if we are going to take seriously the ideology of lunatics, it must be a two-way street. Dylann Roof’s racist ideology was taken very seriously, to the point where Confederate flags came down across the South. In Flanagan’s case, the focus is on gun control rather than his equally racist ideology.

 

"Flanagan was consumed with race hatred, and was disciplined by the television station for which he worked at the time for, among other things, wearing a Barack Obama button while he stood in line to vote. So why do we not retroactively conclude that images of Barack Obama are hateful, like the Confederate flag, and must be banned? Glenn Reynolds asks, “Will Obama apologize for the behavior of one of his followers?” Of course not. But imagine if a racist white killer who worked for a television station had been similarly disciplined for wearing, say, a Ted Cruz button. Do you not think that fact would be deemed highly relevant, and highly embarrassing to Senator Cruz?

"The Dylann Roof case was actually interesting from the standpoint of firearms regulation. The FBI said that Roof should not have been allowed to purchase a gun because he had a misdemeanor arrest for possession of Suboxone. The FBI said that an error was made in running the background check when Roof bought his gun. Whether this conclusion is correct or not is debatable, but the case could have been used to shed light on the biggest problem with firearms regulation: the list of prohibited persons is inadequate, and insane people like Dylann Roof and Vester Flanagan keep passing background checks. This is why liberals’ endless cry for “universal background checks” is futile. But the Left had no interest in gun regulation after the Roof murders. It was after bigger game." . . .

Democrats Mull a Plan B for Iran Deal Passage


"As the vote on the controversial Iran nuclear deal looms, democrats on Capitol Hill and in the White House are pushing forward with their efforts to ensure that their caucus stands as intact as possible against Republican attacks.

"Thus far, their efforts have produced results, if not perfect ones. The defection of powerful Senate democrat Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and the high profile split of two freshman House dems, has dinged the optic surrounding the deal, but overall, the White House has every reason to be optimistic. Nancy Pelosi announced yesterday that she has more than enough votes to sustain a veto in the House (fewer than 60 House dems have announced their opposition,) and in the Senate, Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) has cast doubts about the future success of opposition efforts.

"Still, the White House is nervous. Invoking the veto on such a high-profile issue could move voter confidence in the wrong direction, and destroy what little credibility Obama has left on the international stage.

Traitor Senators Took Money from Iran Lobby, Back Iran Nukes

 The Democrats are becoming a party of atom bomb spies.
 
Frontpage   "Senator Markey has announced his support for the Iran deal that will let the terrorist regime inspect its own Parchin nuclear weapons research site, conduct uranium enrichment, build advanced centrifuges, buy ballistic missiles, fund terrorism and have a near zero breakout time to a nuclear bomb.
"There was no surprise there.
"Markey had topped the list of candidates supported by the Iran lobby. And the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) had maxed out its contributions to his campaign.
"After more fake suspense, Al Franken, another IAPAC backed politician who also benefited from Iran Lobby money, came out for the nuke sellout.
"Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Iran Lobby’s third Dem senator, didn’t bother playing coy like her colleagues. She came out for the deal a while back even though she only got half the IAPAC cash that Franken and Markey received.
"As did Senator Gillibrand, who had benefited from IAPAC money back when she first ran for senator and whose position on the deal should have come as no surprise....
Despite what we are told about its “moderate” leaders, Iran considers itself to be in a state of war with us. Iran and its agents have repeatedly carried out attacks against American soldiers, abducted and tortured to death American officials and have even engaged in attacks on American naval vessels.
Aiding an enemy state in developing nuclear weapons is the worst form of treason imaginable. Helping put weapons of mass destruction in the hands of terrorists is the gravest of crimes.

Hillary Clinton aims to end Joe Biden talk

Politico  " Hillary Clinton’s team is getting tired of the Joe Biden talk. And this week, they want to kill it.

"The Democrat’s strategy heading into a meeting of party elite on Friday is aimed at dismissing the idea now fueling Biden supporters that her campaign is going off the rails, strategists, donors and political allies familiar with Brooklyn’s thinking told POLITICO.

"From a sprint through Iowa that deflected attention from the email saga to her first stop in the swing state of Ohio and now the Democratic National Committee cattle call in Minneapolis, Clinton’s operation knows it needs to both flex its political muscles and prove it can keep its nose to the grindstone to score a controversy-free week.

"The workmanlike stretch is meant to convince Democratic power brokers and big-money donors that they don’t need to place side bets on the vice president — and to suggest to Biden himself that there’s no role for him here; there’s no race to save." . . .Read more

Don’t Fall for the “Snopes CEO Arrested for Fraud” Story

 Never re-blog as fact anything from The People's Cube. Just enjoy it as satire. TD

paperblog
 "Conservative blogs are abuzz with news from The People’s Cube that Snopes.com’s CEO has been arrested for fraud.
 The People's Cube

"Here’s the pull quote from the Aug. 6, 2015, People’s Cube article, “Snopes.com CEO arrested on charges of fraud and corruption“:
Snopes.com owners Barbara and David Mikkelson were detained by police today after an unrelated investigation of a Snopes.com editor led police onto a paper trail of corruption, bribery, and fraud at the very heart of the fact-checking organization. Evidence obtained by police has revealed that Snopes.com, which markets itself as “the definitive Internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumors, and misinformation,” has a history of accepting money and favors from left-leaning and pro-Islamic political groups and individuals for helping them to advance their cause by rigging public discourse with selective fact-finding and deliberate manipulation of public opinion.
"If you’re cheering this, and thinking of reblogging or linking the article, DON’T."

Rule No. 1:
Always be suspicious if a blog post or article does not cite or embed a link to its news source.
"A piece of news such as Snopes’ CEO being arrested should identify its news source — a newspaper, a TV station, or a news agency like the AP. But this report doesn’t.

"That’s because it’s a made-up story. The People’s Cube is a satire, faux news site — yet another The Onion wannabe. From Wikipedia:
The People’s Cube is a U.S. based satirical conservative website that was launched April 1, 2005
People’s Cube’s founder is Oleg Atbashian, who was a propaganda artist for the former Soviet Union before he moved to the U.S. in 1994. He writes under the pseudonym “Red Square.”
 Shakedown Socialism - a book by Oleg Atbashian
When he arrived in the U.S., Atbashian was puzzled by the “level of delusional affection for all things Left among the liberal intellectual elites who take America’s exclusive well-being for granted.” He founded The People’s Cube, hoping that it be a site of political humor and parody for “conservatives, libertarians, objectivists, and anyone who supports and celebrates America’s freedoms, individual rights, and capitalism.”
In all fairness to Atbashian, People’s Cube doesn’t pretend to deliver real news, as you can see from its tongue-in-cheek masthead:
See what we mean?

Jorge Ramos’ Daughter Works For Hillary Clinton, Univision’s Chair Pledged ‘All Might’ To Help Hillary

 "The credibility and impartiality of Univision’s coverage of U.S. electoral politics has already been undermined by the network’s executive chairman, Haim Saban, pledging his “full might” to the mission of putting Hillary Clinton in the White House. That credibility has been further eroded by the network’s partnership with the Clinton Foundation."

 Weasel Zippers:
"A little more background on the Univision and Ramos bias, Univision doesn’t even bother to pretend Ramos is a fair journalist, they admit he’s pushing a political agenda.

"Via Newsbusters:
As Univision News President Isaac Lee explained to a journalism forum at the University of Texas at Austin earlier this year, the journalism Ramos practices is focused on promoting a very particular agenda.. . .

SMALL BUT HONEST COLUMNIST AGAIN FORCED TO CORRECT HIGHEST-RATED SHOW ON CABLE TV

 



 Ann Coulter   " To support his insane interpretation of the post-Civil War amendments as granting citizenship to the kids of illegal aliens, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly is now taking job applications for the nonexistent -- but dearly hoped-for -- Jeb! administration, live, during his show.

"(Apparently my debate with O'Reilly will be conducted in my column, Twitter feed and current bestselling book, Adios, America, against the highest-rated show on cable news.)

"Republicans have been out of the White House for seven long years, and GOP lawyers are getting impatient. So now they're popping up on Fox News' airwaves, competing to see who can denounce Donald Trump with greater vitriol.

"Last Thursday's job applicants were longtime government lawyers John Yoo and David Rivkin.

"In response to O'Reilly's statement that "there is no question the Supreme Court decisions have upheld that portion of the 14th Amendment that says any person, any person born in the U.S.A. is entitled to citizenship ... for 150 years" -- Yoo concurred, claiming: "This has been the rule in American history since the founding of the republic."

"Yes, Americans fought at Valley Forge to ensure that any illegal alien who breaks into our country and drops a baby would have full citizenship for that child! Why, when Washington crossed the Delaware, he actually was taking Lupe, a Mexican illegal, to a birthing center in Trenton, N.J.
"If one were being a stickler, one might recall the two centuries during which the children of slaves were not deemed citizens despite being born here -- in fact, despite their parents, their grandparents and their great-grandparents being born here.

The People's Cube
 

Here is a list of 45 goals set in 1963 by the Communist Party to destroy America. Observe how many goals have already been accomplished.

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
