Could we please stop calling these liberal idiots “Progressives” ? The term “Regressives” makes more sense. Yes, let’s force the NYPD to reveal all their techniques for keeping the city safe. Because, what could possibly go wrong? Except maybe, God forbid, another “9/11” Via NY Post. A City Council bill would force the NYPD to open its anti-terror playbook to the public — a move the department warned would create a “blueprint for those seeking to do harm.” The council’s Public Oversight of Surveillance Technology Act would require the NYPD to issue reports on what kinds of spy equipment police use — such as license-plate readers, cellphone trackers and X-ray vans used to peer through walls — as well how...

Well, it sort-of makes sense that Big Al would say this, since the “religion” of Liberals seems to be Global Warming, er Climate Change, er Climate Disruptions, er, whatever. Via Breitbart. Former Vice President Al Gore is now telling his climate disciples that God commands us to go forth and fight global warming. Engaging in some advanced publicity for his new global warming film spectacular, “An Inconvenient Sequel,” Gore told Interview Magazine that God didn’t create global warming and wants us to fix it. In his comments, Gore equated the fight against global warming to a religious-based, moral crusade similar to the civil rights fight, women’s suffrage, and the abolitionist movement during the Civil War era. Gore insisted that it...

How did we manage to survive eight years of this preening, arrogant, finger-wagging hypocritical jerk? Via Breitbart. Former President Barack Obama spoke to the Chamber of Commerce in Montreal on Tuesday, warning against income inequality and the concentration of wealth—remarks from a man who reportedly commanded $400,000 a speech, or $7,700-a-minute at that rate, for his Canadian speech. Obama said the world must do more to combat income inequality, noting that the concentration of wealth fans fears that governments exist solely to benefit the powerful, NBC reported. “That’s a recipe for more cynicism and more polarization, less trust in our institutions and less trust in each other,” Obama said. “And it’s part of what leads people to turn to populist...

Shorter Hillary: Combat terrorism…eat lamb kabobs! Via American Mirror. Hillary Clinton’s solution to combating terrorism? “Understand” those different from us, apparently including terrorists, right down to the foods they eat. “This is a time for us to reach out to the world,” Clinton said, “to understand more about what is happening. Not just in our own country but indeed across the globe. “It’s a time for steady, determined leadership, like we are seeing from local authorities in London, including the mayor of London,” she said, referring to Sadiq Khan. “And it is a time to remember how important our alliances are. … Getting to know one another. Learning about the experiences, the lives, the cultures, the religions, the food,” she...

Well, the “one hundred months” is now upon us. And in warning about an unimaginable horrific catastrophe that would befall us, maybe Prince Charles was on to something. I mean, Hillary’s constant whining, Pelosi’s ramblings, Kathy Griffin and her new-found “victimhood,” Anderson Cooper’s eye rolls: Yes, who could have possibly imagined these horrors one hundred months ago? Via Weekly Standard. The Prince of Wales did not mince words in warning about the ravages of global warming. No piddling nonsense about a few inches of sea-rise; nothing so trivial as coastal erosion; no focus on the plight of the polar bear. No, the prince had a louder alarm he was sounding, one about the Future of Mankind: The “threat of catastrophic...

CA Dem: ‘Isolated’ Muslim Youth May Believe Violence Only Way To Make Statement About Their Religionby Shifra on May 28, 2017
Why is this woman trying to rationalize terrorism? This mind-set is obscene. We don’t need to psychoanalyze terrorists. We need to wipe them out. Via Federalist. Rep. Jackie Speier (D., Calif.) defended Muslims and said the youths could become so isolated that violence becomes the “only avenue of making a statement about their religion….

That awkward moment when you fall for a hoax, and realize you are suffering from a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Via World Tribune. Seems the many Trump haters in the mainstream media are willing to listen to – and believe – anything negative anyone has to say about the 45th president. Several of them fell for a hoax report on a White House document purporting to show a list of some outrageous demands made by President Donald Trump of his Israeli hosts. The document appeared on a joke Twitter account, @RogueSNRadvisor, which pretends to originate from a “rogue” senior adviser to the president…. The list on the Twitter account Rogue White House Senior Advisor included: • Trump’s demand...

So, is a burnt bagel and a schmear…anti-Semitic? Via Breitbart. ….According to documents obtained by the online campus watchdog site, the College Fix, an Asian female enrolled at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, submitted a bias incident report claimed that she experienced racial discrimination when a male employee served her a piece of burnt toast. “It’s nothing serious, but I feel I need to get this out of my mind,” the student’s report reads. “Around 2pm afternoon last Friday, I went to Gordon Market to grab some late lunch, and got french toast from one of the male kitchen staffs there. I don’t know why but he gave me a clearly quite burnt toast among all other breads that were...

Remember when he got a Nobel Peace Prize for doing…nothing? And now this: Last night, Obama was honored in Boston with another award, this time from Caroline Kennedy and her family and friends. Here is what he said in March, when the award was announced: ….It’s been more than half a century since John F. Kennedy asked us to cast aside our narrow self-interest and take up the chase of a greater ambition: our collective capacity to do big things, especially when it’s hard, It was a call to citizenship as true as the words of our founding and a conviction that helped guide me to public service as a younger man – a belief in the possibilities of our...

Because… autism. Not kidding. Via BBC. Oxford University has apologised for saying that avoiding eye contact could be “everyday racism” after it was accused of discriminating against autistic people. The claim was included in a list of “racial micro-aggressions” in an equality and diversity unit newsletter. But the university was criticised for being “insensitive” to autistic people who can struggle making eye contact. It said it had made a mistake and not taken disabilities into account. The university originally said “racial micro-aggressions” might include: “Not making eye contact or speaking directly to people.”….

It’s “unconstitutional” to object to a painting that demeans police officers, but it’s perfectly okay to disobey Federal law with regard to illegals? Got it. Via Grabien. Rep. Clay: “For those of you who may not know, many other members of Congress conduct this Congress in their district as well. In fact, this painting was one of more than 400 student entries from across the nation that were reviewed, accepted and approved last June for public display in the cannon tunnel by the architect of the Capitol. Members of Congress do not select the artists. We do not approve or disapprove of any of the artistic concepts, and we have no role in judging the competition. We simply provide a...

Wait, there’s more: This Yale Ph.D (not kidding) also compares Dr. Ben Carson to a Holocaust Denier, because he says transgender people are really “men and women in disguise” – which means Carson does not treat them as “fully human.” Via College Fix. Freedom of speech must take a backseat to freedom from offense because the Holocaust happened. That’s the nutshell argument by a New York University vice provost in favor of universities blocking students and faculty from inviting controversial speakers. Ulrich Baer, who oversees faculty, arts, humanities and diversity at the elite Manhattan college, writes in The New York Times that “personal experience and testimony” can be more important than “the primacy of argument,” as evidenced by the testimony...

No mention of the many millions of people murdered, starved and tortured under Communism, though. You don’t want to upset the kiddies, I guess. Via CNS News. In order to make the deadliest ideology of the 20th century palatable to young Americans, “Communism for Kids” is coming to a bookstore near you. This newly released book from MIT Press “proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism.”…. According to the Amazon synopsis, the book weaves a fairy tale of “jealous princesses, fancy swords, displaced peasants, mean bosses, and tired workers.”…. It is bewildering why MIT Press would publish a book that cutesies up the political creed that gave the world Joseph...
