The Hobgoblin of Little Minds

The New Republic has sorted it all out for us. When Republicans use the filibuster to restrain a Democrat majority, it’s unconstitutional, and just plain evil. But when Republicans are the senate majority, the filibuster is a very important tool and should be used “ruthlessly” to make sure Republicans can’t accomplish anything.

Sample:

New Republic, November 21, 2013: Stupid filibuster!

Nuking the Filibuster Is Great. Sanctimonious Beltway Types Just Won’t Admit It.

New Republic, November 4, 2014 (just after GOP retakes the Senate): Second look at the filibuster?

Democrats Should Use the Filibuster Ruthlessly Against the Republican Senate

Democrat Special Interests Failed to Buy the Senate, Governorships

Billionaire crony capitalist Tom Steyer spent $74 Million trying to buy a Democrat US Senate that would pass draconian energy regulations… thus making his investments in “Green Energy” highly profitable. He failed.

[Steyer’s mentor is an extreme environmentalist, Bill McKibben, who thinks Americans should reduce their standard of living to third world levels in order to save the planet from ManBearPig. Although I imagine, under such a scenario, wealthy politicians and their cronies would be exempted from the third world living standards.]

Democrat-affiliated Teacher’s Unions spent as much as $80 Million to try and elect Democrat governors in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Florida… and support Democrat Kay “Conflict of Interest” Hagan in North Carolina. Gosh, think of all the school supplies that $80,000,ooo could have bought.

On Kajieme Powell, and Injustice in America

We here at GayPatriot care deeply about justice. In contrast to the political Left, we happen to care about real justice; rather than posturing and claims of “social justice” that are usually unjust and illegitimate. We know that 90-95% of the time, when the political Left is shrieking about “social justice”, it’s exaggeration – or often baloney.

Accordingly, we tend to favor law and order. But the law-enforcement system must be subject to constitutional limits. And it’s made of human beings like anything else, beings who can make mistakes or go wrong. There are times when law enforcement should be criticized, if not condemned, for doing something horribly unjust.

Kajieme Powell’s death is one of those times. If you haven’t seen this video already, WARNING – it’s tragic and not for the faint of heart:

(Via Zero Hedge; edited video is also at HotAir.)

At the risk of being obvious, I’d like to state what was so unjust in the police killing of Powell. First and obviously, it was out of proportion to anything Powell did. He allegedly stole food items from a convenience store. And he reportedly waved a knife while resisting police arrest. And for those bad things, he should have been knocked to the ground (to get the knife away from him), or tased, or (at the very most) shot in the leg. Not riddled with a stream of bullets.

Second – and perhaps less obviously; some Democrats may need to have this spelled out for them – it was far out of proportion to what others have done. Others like, for example, DEMOCRAT Jon Corzine who, to this day, still has not been charged for stealing on a scale so vast that poor Kajieme Powell couldn’t begin to dream of it.

An America where Powell is riddled with bullets over a few food items while DEMOCRAT Jon Corzine never faces charges, is not a place of justice.

This is what our society has come to. And I don’t think it’s about race per se, as much as it is about political status & connections. Remember, Corzine’s key political connection was President Barack Obama. Powell probably had no connections.

P.S. I apologize for my tardiness in getting to the Powell matter. Without going into detailed excuses, let’s just say that (1) writing posts is time-consuming work, the way I go about it; (2) I had a busy summer; and so (3) I simply wasn’t writing in August when this happened, and I’m only now getting caught up.

A penny drops

When someone who is lost in a maelstrom of demented falsehoods (leftism) glimpses even a fragment of truth, even if that person has a long way to go, that little glimpse makes the angels sing.

Today, it’s Cindy Sheehan.

Tuesday on NewsmaxTV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan said in 2005 Nancy Pelosi and top Democrat leaders in the House and Senate said to her face that if she helped them get elected they would end the wars completely, but now they have stopped supporting her…

Sheehan said the left anti war movement is being ignored by the democrats because they are “reverse racists” who are supporting Obama only because he is an African-American.

She said, “I think that there are some people on the so called left, who might say we have to circle our wagons around the first African American president, and to me that is racism in reverse because his policies are actually still the racist policies of empire.”

So… Nancy Pelosi lies to people’s faces and uses them? Obama is what the Left always accused Bush of being? Democrats are racists who only voted for him on skin color? What goes around, comes around?

My, oh my.

Update From the Futile Search For Liberal Left Consistency

The Progressive Left defense of Roman Polanski is, “Hey, the girl he rape raped is a grown woman now, and she’s okay with it. So, who are we to judge?

The Progressive Left defense of gay Democrat lecher Gerry Studds is, “Hey, the boy he molested is a grown man now, and he’s okay with what happened. So, who are we to judge?

The Progressive Left defense of Kevin Jennings is, “Hey, the boy he instructed on the finer points of cruising bus station toilets is a grown man now, and he’s okay with it. So, who are we to judge?

So, why is it different when grown woman Janay Rice says she’s okay with Ray Rice knocking her around once in a while?

“But it’s different because it was an act of violence,” simpers the progressive left. “So, rape isn’t an act of violence?” “Only if it’s rape-rape.” “So getting someone drunk and drugged and then having sex with them like Polanski and Studds did isn’t rape?” “Sometimes it is and sometimes it isn’t; if it’s a fellow progressive whose down with the struggle, it isn’t.” “As a woman, doesn’t Janay Rice have a right to make her own decisions without being judged.” “Not when she’s wrong.” “When is she wrong?” “When we say so.”

I have no conflict. I think Roman Polanski, Gerry Studds, Kevin Jennings, and Ray Rice are all scumbags.  Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Mark Foley, Bob Filner, Anthony Weiner, John Edwards, Eric Massa, Keith Farnham, and  Charles Rust-Tierney are all scumbags, too.

And if Janay Rice were to ask me what she should do, I would tell her, “Get yourself away from that man. He’s like MSNBC… Bad News.”

This is not a defense of Ray or Janay Rice, this is just a question: Why the inconsistency?

And does MFM saturation of this story have anything to do with riling up the feminist vote before a midterm election?

I’m just asking.

Obama’s Golfing Buddies

Obama’s aides want you to know that just because Obama was yukking it up and fist-bumping literally half an hour after eulogizing James Foley after he was beheaded by Mohammedan savages (or as Obama calls them “folks“), that his actions “did not reflect the depths of his grief” over Foley’s brutal death missing that two-foot putt on the 13th hole.

Chicks on the Right thought you might want to know a little more about Obama’s golfing buddies.

2014-08-22_20_13_46

Center: Glenn Hutchins, mutli-millionaire founder of private equity firm Silver Lake Partners (which was a defendant in a collusion lawsuit this year along with Bain Capital and recently settled out of court for $30-million)
Right: Cyrus Walker, a millionaire lobbyist for Chatman LLC, a lobbying firm for the health insurance industry in Deleware
Left: The current President who campaigned against both private equity firms and also political lobbyist organizations, whose golf game apparently comes before important matters as well as his own integrity

And yet, there are lot of stupid people who believe Democrats are “the party of the little guy.”  (You know who you are.)

Desperate Democrats Blow the Rape Whistle

Fanatical Abortion Supporter Wendy Davis is lagging in all the polls in her race for Texas Governor. So, the Democrats and their allies have decided to accuse her opponent of being pro-rape.

Bu7GXTjIQAAKZid-550x451

The backstory is, her opponent, Gregg Abbott, was once a justice on the Texas Supreme Court, who offered a dissenting opinion in a case that involved rape. A woman was raped by a traveling salesman. Rather than sur the rapists employer for hiring a sex offender, she wanted to go after the deeper pockets of the company that subcontracted the company the rapist worked for. Abbott’s opinion was that it was lawful for her to sue the rapist’s direct employer, but not the larger corporation that contracted out to his employer.

In other words, Gregg Abbott thinks rape is okay.

Meanwhile, the Democrats revere Bill Clinton who was credibly accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick.

The Democrats quite literally have nothing to offer except free [stuff] from the Government, and deranged allegations that their opponents are racists who support rape.

And sadly, the country has become such an Idiocracy that the strategy works.

When Mohammedans Commit Genocide, the Left Cares Very Little

While the American Media curl up at Obama’s feet, compose odes to his Wonderfulness, and make asses of themselves trying to get a glimpse of the “Great Leader,” it is left to the foreign media to cover the atrocities being committed in the name of Islam and the Caliphate in Iraq and Syria. This is what real genocide looks like.

Yet, the American Progressive Left can muster very little outrage when Mohammedans commit genocide. There are no “die-ins” in Boston or Berkeley. No mass protests. No calls for the supporters of ISIS to be banned from college campuses.  No reports of Democrats comparing ISIS to Nazis.

It is almost as if the Progressive has an enormous moral blind spot when it comes to atrocities committed by Mohammedans. It is as if they cannot be bothered when genocide is committed by people who hate America. It is as if they have never been bothered when genocide is committed by people who hate America.

Meanwhile, Obama authorizes a few pinprick airstrikes and drops some bottled water, then heads off for his Tee Time.*

I also note that Boko Haram has not #BroughtBackOurGirls. Michelle Obama and Jen Psaki might want to check on that.

Virginia Is Getting Kind of Creepy and Perverted

In Virginia, a Democrat candidate for Congress is asking his supporters to send him nude pictures of a teenage girl. [Warning, the link is to the Examiner, so don’t click on it unless you want your screen to be taken over by pop-up ads for several minutes.)

Mike Dickinson, the Virginia liberal Democrat seeking the House seat currently held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., despite not being on the ballot, offered a $100,000 reward for nude photos and videos of Kendall Jones, the 19-year-old Texas Tech cheerleader who recently made news with a series of hunting photos on her Facebook page.

“I have 100k to anyone who has nude photos or videos of #kendalljones at Texas tech (sic),” Dickinson tweeted. “She deserves to be a target.”

So, not only does he want nude pictures of her, he wants them so that others will be encouraged to stalk her. #WarOnWomen much? [And apologists will argue that he’s not really a candidate and doesn’t represent the Democrat party at all, unlike that troll in Oklahoma who supposedly wanted to stone teh gheys who totes represents all Republicans.]

Also, in Virginia, the police want to give a 17 year old boy an erection and take pictures of it. (Does the Safe Schools Czar know about this?)

The authorities in Prince William County, Virginia, are pursuing child pornography charges against a 17 year old who exchanged nude picture texts with his 15-year-old girlfriend. The police have even filed a warrant that would permit them to take the teen to the hospital, give him an erection-producing injection, and photograph his penis. Prosecutors want to compare this photograph to the one the teen sent to his girlfriend, establishing that they depict the same thing.

First of all, it’s utterly nonsensical to use child pronography laws to prosecute idiot teenagers who sext each other; because idiot teenagers sexting each other is not the same as child pr0nography to any reasoning person with a functioning brain. But I guess aside from waxing their new MRAPs, the cops just don’t have a lot to do these days.

Frankly, the whole thing reminds me of that scene in Porky’s, a movie that seems quaint and wholesome by today’s degenerate standards.

What Democrats and Republican Elites Really Think

Item No. 1: The establishment GOP National Republican Senate Committee paid for a radio ad and printed flyers in Mississippi that called fiscal, small Government conservatives racists.

Item No. 2: The Democrats’ central argument in opposing voter ID boils down to this: “Our voters are too lazy and stupid to go out and get a Government ID.

It fascinates me that, when push comes to shove, both parties privately embrace and promote the worst stereotypes of the people said to vote for them.

It’s also revealing what political aristocrats really think of the people who cast votes for them.

Democrat Governor: Eric Cantor Totally Pings My Gaydar

Posted by V the K at 8:27 am - June 19, 2014.
Filed under: Democrats & Double Standards

Brian Schweitzer was the two-term Democrat governor of Montana, and is on the short list to be Hillary’s Vice Eunuch. Schweitzer went on MSDNC yesterday and said the kind of thing that gay left is only okay with when a Democrat says it.

“Don’t hold this against me, but I’m going to blurt it out. How do I say this … men in the South, they are a little effeminate. They just have effeminate mannerisms. If you were just a regular person, you turned on the TV, and you saw Eric Cantor talking, I would say—and I’m fine with gay people, that’s all right—but my gaydar is 60-70 percent. But he’s not, I think, so I don’t know. Again, I couldn’t care less. I’m accepting.”

i.e. “I think Eric Cantor’s a fag and southern men are effeminate, not that’s there’s anything wrong with that.”

Of course, Schweitzer is fromt Montana, where Democrats gay-baiting Republicans is a thing and the gay left couldn’t care less. In fact, the gay left actively rewards Democrats who use anti-gay ads to bash Republicans.

Obama administration blows a CIA station chief’s cover

Recall how in 2003, a massive scandal erupted when Richard Armitage, a State Department official under then-Secretary Colin Powell, happened to leak Valerie Plame’s name to a journalist. Plame was a CIA Stateside employee (arguably NOT under cover). Armitage was basically gossiping, and he never underwent any prosecution because it was no big deal. Except, of course, the Left/media had a field day pushing the scandal complete with the darkest possible allegations against President Bush, lionization of Plame and her partisan-liar of a husband, a federal prosecutor and a ‘gotcha’ conviction of Scooter Libby (a Bush staffer who was not the key leaker; Armitage was).

Recently, the White House leaked the name of a top CIA officer in Kabul, Afghanistan. His name was really a secret. He does serve abroad (and in a danger zone), and he is endangered by the leak. As the Washington Post puts it:

The Post is withholding the name of the CIA officer at the request of Obama administration officials who warned that the officer and his family could be at risk if the name were published…

The CIA officer was one of 15 senior U.S. officials identified as taking part in a military briefing for Obama…Their names were included on a list…circulated by e-mail to reporters…

It is unclear whether the disclosure will force the CIA to pull the officer out of Afghanistan…The identities of at least three CIA station chiefs in Pakistan have been exposed in recent years. In one case, a CIA officer became a target of death threats after his cover was blown, forcing the agency to rush him out of the country.

Should we expect any big scandal, Left/media outrage, federal prosecutors or trumped-up convictions over this?

“Only the Little People Pay Taxes, Dahling…”

Q. Why do Democrats think business is corrupt and rich people don’t pay taxes?
A. Because rich Democrats are corrupt and don’t pay taxes.

The family bicycle business of Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke (“I believe people should pay their fair share” – Ed.) has not paid state income taxes for more than three decades.

Trek, which claims its bicycles can “combat climate change,” has sales of roughly $900 million. However, according to records from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue obtained by Fox 6 in Milwaukee, Trek Bicycle has not paid net income taxes since at least 1982.

And wait, it gets better.

The company also received an $875,000 loan funded by Wisconsin taxpayers, while Burke was serving as Secretary of Commerce for the state.

Trek used the loan to build a new facility, and $392,300 of that loan was forgiven, according to Bjorling.

If they weren’t protected by judges and prosecutors just as corrupt as they are, the Democrats would be prosecuted under organized crime and racketeering laws.

From the “It’s Not Racist When *They* Do It” Files

The 5th of May is a day on which many Americans celebrate a phony holiday ginned up by the Maltese branch of a Mexican beer company.

When students at Dartmouth wanted to hold a “Phiesta” in conjunction with Cinco de Cerveza, they were called racist and shut down faster than a Condi Rice commencement speech.

Some Americans who held up American flags outside an American high school on Cinco do Cerveza were called racists by the kind of people who think Ed Schultz and Alan Grayson are great intellects.

But an MSDNC staffer wearing a sombrero and shaking maracas? Totally cool.

Democrat Party Accepts Money from Anti-Gay Cult Leader

Posted by V the K at 9:03 pm - May 4, 2014.
Filed under: Democrats & Double Standards

By unanimous vote, the Central Committee (Yeah, that doesn’t sound Soviet Communist) of the Democrat Party of Thurston County Washington agreed to accept a donation of $65,000 from the leader of a cult who claims to be the incarnation of a 35,000 year old warrior spirit named Ramtha.

Thurston County Democratic Party Chair Roger Erskine said the Central Committee is not considering refunding the contributions and characterized the statements made by Knight as “alleged.”

Erskine said the decision to accept Knight’s contributions was made by unanimous vote at a recent committee meeting and the decision was based on the board’s having “verified that Knight was a Democrat in good standing who supports all parts of the party platform.”

The Cult Leader in question, was recorded on tape saying that “all gay men were once Catholic women,” and warning of “…the invasion of the Mexicans who just breed like rabbits.”

Hey, but at least she’s not a libertarian businessman. Because then, such donations would be unseemly.

Who’s Hurting Black People?

Inspired by a monologue on Mark Levin’s show last night… serious question for the group, who is doing more harm to African-Americans?

A. An octogenarian billionaire telling his skanky rent-girl that he doesn’t want her to come to basketball games in the company of black man.

B. A president who guts a voucher program that helped children… predominantly African-American … access higher quality education. [And you can add a Progressive NYC Mayor (and Sandinista supporter, although I am not supposed to point that out) who similarly is trying to lock minority children out of educational opportunities.]

This is a serious question.

NYC Public School to Honor Child Rapist

Take heart, Bryan Singer, the artsy left can be very forgiving.

Folk singer and convicted sex offender Peter Yarrow will be honored by La Guardia HS for the Performing Arts next month, enraging parents and prompting a dozen “uncomfortable” students to refuse to sing for him.

Yarrow, a member of the legendary Peter, Paul and Mary, was accused of engaging in a sex act with a 14-year-old girl in a Washington, DC, hotel room in front of her 17-year-old sister in 1970. He pleaded guilty to “taking indecent liberties” with the child and landed three months behind bars.

There are probably a lot of non-rapist folk-singers they could have honored.

Meanwhile, Ayaan Hirsan Ali and Condaleezza Rice remain persona non-grata because they hold politically uncorrect opinions.

The Democrat Perspective on Domestic Terrorism

1. Nadal Hasan murders 14 people at Fort Hood While screaming “Allahu Akbar!” Not a terrorist.

2. American citizens come together and, without firing a shot, protect a Nevada rancher from Federal Agencies who assaulted his family, killed his cattle, and destroyed his equipment. These are the people Democrats consider “domestic terrorists.”

I am reasonably confident King George III considered George Washington, Patrick Henry, and Thomas Jefferson to be “domestic terrorists,” too.

UPDATE (from Jeff): V makes a great point about the Democrats’ penchant for calling their (political) opponents terrorists, which GP has before documented with links (e.g., here and here).

Basically, left-wing Democrats want an obtrusive Big Government, to pay for their lives/mistakes and to punish anyone whom they have ever envied. Someone who stands for traditional citizens’ liberties under a smaller, less oppressive Federal government will simply terrify them. And is, therefore and to them, “a terrorist”.

Class Warrior Paul Krugman to Receive $225K for No-Show Job with “Income Inequality Initiative”

If this were published in The Onion, people would think; “Ah, once again, those clever Onionistas have adroitly par0died our zeitgeist.” (Some people would think that. Probably) But IRL… Paul Krugman – the New York Times economitician who rails constantly against “income inequality“… is going to be paid $225,000 by a publicly-funded university for… well, no one can really say exactly… but it has something to do with an “Income Inequality Initiative.” (Perhaps, they think there isn’t enough.)

According to a formal offer letter obtained under New York’s Freedom of Information Law, CUNY intends to pay Krugman $225,000, or $25,000 per month (over two semesters), to “play a modest role in our public events” and “contribute to the build-up” of a new “inequality initiative.” It is not clear, and neither CUNY nor Krugman was able to explain, what “contribute to the build-up” entails

Maybe Krugman’s advice to CUNY will help them as much as it helped Enron back in the 2000′s.

FWIW: At 2014 rates, Krugman’s stipend would pay a year’s tuition for 39 CUNY students.

BTW: The Leftist Sycophants at the New Republic are 100% OK with this.

More Sweet Irony:  SEIU — one of the Democrats many favorite labor unions — wants to unionize workers at Left-wing FoxNews haters and champions of the proletariat “Media Matters for America.”  The good lefties at MMFA have responded by hiring a law firm that specializes in “union-busting.”

Yet another ‘limousine socialist’

Left-wing NYC Mayor de Blasio has released his tax return. Guess what?

  • “$165,047 in total income” (probably includes his “$52,000 in rental income”)
  • “Mr. de Blasio’s effective tax rate was 8.3%.”
  • “reported $5,597 in gifts to charity, roughly 3%”

So de Blasio got a 6-figure income and gave basically 11% back to the society in which he lives.

I seem to remember lefties screeching with drama and contempt in 2012 when Mitt Romney paid an effective tax rate of 14.1%, plus another whopping 29.7% to charity, for a total give-back to society of 44% of his income, or four times the rate of de Blasio.
