Crony Corruption in just 5 days

Communist NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio began his term in office by promising to ban horse-drawn carriages from the streets of NYC because he couldn’t bear to see the poor little horsies suffer.

As it turns out, one of Comrade de Blasio’s very, very wealthy and deep-pocketed campaign financiers has been pushing a ban on horse-drawn carriages for years… so he can buy the stables where they are kept and develop worker’s housing for the proletariat upscale residential and retail properties.

The bad guy in this drama, according to the carriage drivers, is Steve Nislick, former chief executive officer of a New Jersey-based real-estate development company, Edison Properties.* The company “employs legions of lobbyists to influence city decisions on real estate and zoning in its favor,” journalist Michael Gross reported in 2009, pointing out that two of Edison’s businesses “have multiple locations in the same Far West Midtown neighborhood as the stables where the Central Park horses are housed.” An anti-carriage pamphlet Nislick circulated in 2008 made this interesting observation: “Currently, the stables consist of 64,000 square feet of valuable real estate on lots that could accomodate up to 150,000 square feet of development. These lots could be sold for new development.”

Left-wing populist demogoguery has always been a great prophylactic against media curiosity about shady financial dealings; just ask Warren Buffett.

MSDNC Hates on the Romney Family for Adopting a Black Child

Posted by V the K at 10:29 am - December 31, 2013.
Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy

When pro-lifers like myself suggest adoption as the preferred alternative to abortion, it is common for pro-abortionists to sneer, “Yeah, as if conservatives are ever going to adopt an unwanted black baby.”

And then, they attack Mitt Romney’s family for adopting a black baby… because Racism.

On MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry on Sunday, the panel was discussing several topics of the “of the year” variety. In the below clip, panelists are shown photos ‘of the year” and asked to offer humorous captions. Host Harris-Perry shows a Romney family photo that includes his adopted grandchild, who happens to be black, and this is the reaction:

[Video at Link]

 The panelists start laughing the moment the photo is on the screen, because obviously. Then the first response is Pia Glenn off-camera sing-songing “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same” and the rest of the panel chuckles along. It’s funny because Romney is white and his grandson isn’t, which is obviously hilarious. Because as everyone knows, the races should not mix.

Do ya think Melissa Harris-Perry suspects the Romney’s were motivated by tokenism to adopt a black baby because that’s the precise reason MSNBC was motivated to hire her as an anchor? Iowahawk does.

Update: Melissa Harris-Perry issues the pro-forma liberal fauxpology. Next week, back in-line at the chanting circle.


GLAAD, Blacklists, and Acceptable Fascism

‘With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured…the first thought forbidden…the first freedom denied–chains us all irrevocably.’ Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie, as wisdom…and warning. The first time any man’s freedom is trodden on, we’re all damaged.” – Star Trek: The Next Generation “The Drumhead

Hollywood used to think blacklists and the suppression of free speech were terrible things when applied to communists who were working to undermine and destroy the United States of America; but blacklists and suppression are now good things when used to advance the Gay Agenda. But GLAAD has shown them that blacklisting can be a very effective tool in squashing free speech that they don’t agree with.

Within hours of GLAAD’s publication of my addition to the list, which amounts to an excommunication from polite society, an e-mail was sent to the president of my university, along with dozens of other high officials in California, with the announcement: ROBERT OSCAR LOPEZ PLACED ON GLAAD WATCH LIST.

Aside from that one fling on Al Jazeera, since GLAAD placed me on their blacklist, no secular media outlet has invited me on its show in the United States.  In-depth interviews with me have been broadcast in Chile, Russia, France, Ireland, and a number of other nations.  In the United States, Christian broadcasters like the American Family Association and Frank Sontag’s “Faith and Reason” show in Los Angeles have interviewed me.  And I’d been interviewed, prior to the GLAAD blacklisting, by Minnesota affiliates of NBC, CBS, Fox, and NPR, as well as a number of newspapers.  Since GLAAD’s blacklisting, none.

Prior to GLAAD’s blacklisting, I had received calls from people at universities discussing their interest in having me come to campus and give speeches.  Three were working with me to set up dates.  Since GLAAD’s blacklisting, none.  Those who had discussed this with me said point-blank that their superiors did not want to create controversy.

The idea behind this form of proactive speech suppression is simple; punish one man and terrify a thousand more into silence for fear of losing their careers, their income, their social standing.

And underneath it all, leftist progressives don’t really respect teh gheys, they just patronize them for the sake of political correctness, so they can flaunt their “tolerance” they way Victorians flaunted their piety. But every once in a while, the mask slips, as with Alec Baldwin, Al Franken, Tracy Morgan and others… and gay leftists are made aware of the sad little secret that those who are supposed to be their biggest supporters privately loathe and ridicule them.

I imagine that explains at least some of their inconsulable bitterness.

…. And Another Thing…

What happens when lefties* must pay for what they advocate

Posted by Jeff (ILoveCapitalism) at 2:27 am - December 19, 2013.
Filed under: Economy,Liberal Hypocrisy,Socialism in America

Well, we know from all those Obamacare ex-supporters who now say, “But I didn’t realize I would be paying for it!” But here’s another example.

A ‘living wage’ is good, right? Walmart workers making $15/hr rather than $8 is only fair, right? Any good leftie* should claim to believe it.

But money doesn’t grow on trees. Walmart can’t pay higher wages without charging higher prices. And the intrepid Peter Schiff explains it to Walmart customers, under his slogan “Higher wages for higher prices”. Watch their support wilt away:

(*To be fair, the customers shown may not be political lefties. I tie them to the Left because the ‘living wage’, ‘Walmart is unfair’ notion that these customers support is left-wing in essence. If any of these people are libertarian or conservative, shame on them; they should know better!)

Fashion Question for You

Karl Pierson, who would have become the latest school mass murderer – except that a good guy with a gun (and not Colorado’s Draconian gun laws) stopped him – disappointed the media by being a socialist left-winger whose hatred of Republicans was almost at MSNBC levels and not, as they had fervently hoped, a pro-Second Amendment Tea Party supporter.

Gabe Malor at AoSHQ has dissected the media’s pattern of desperately hoping a new shooter is a right wing nut job, and then losing interest in a story when they find out he’s on their team. There is nothing for me to add, so thorough is his dissection.

So, one detail of the story piqued my interest. Karl Pierson showed his love for murderous progressive leftism partly by wearing Soviet themed T-shirts to school and proclaiming himself a communist. Communism is a murderous and opporessive ideology that butchered somewhere north of 100,000,000 people in the 20th Century. Do you think the school would have let him wear T-shirts emblazoned with Swastikas and proclaim himself a Nazi? Why is one murderous ideology okay and the other forbidden? Are some murderous ideologies just “more equal” than others?


Speaking of Income Inequality

The Communist Mayor of New York City owns two homes valued at over a million dollars apiece. The New York Times considers his two million-dollar homes “humble.” And to my knowledge, he has not offered to take in any of the city’s homeless.

If Democrats can ask why I “need” an AR-15, is it fair to ask why Comrade DeBlasio needs two homes?

BTW: The Communist Senator from Massachusetts won’t be running for president in 2016. Sad really. Don’t you think it’s time a fake Native American occupied the White House? (I remind you, a “moderate, electable” Republican lost to this shrill Marxist lying harridan. Perhaps previewing what will happen if Chris Christie runs against Hillary.)

Update: Do you think Obama had a problem with income inequality when his wife was working a $300K per year, no-show job that mainly involved denying health care to poor people?

Name that theme

Sometimes you’ll be scanning headlines at your favorite locations, and a common element will jump out at you. Consider:

The common element is, of course, the Left’s penchant for dictatorship and thuggery.

Obama’s Partners


So, over the weekend, the Obama Regime came to an agreement with the gay-killing, terrorist-supporting Iranian regime. The agreement is that sanctions will be lifted, and Iran will be allowed to continue to enrich uranium. And in return, the Obama Regime gets a distraction from the Obamacare debacle and the predictable adulation of their sycophants in the press.

The agreement is strikingly similar to the deal Jimmy Carter negotiated with the Norks in 1994. And we all know what a brilliant success that was.

Obama is happily willing not only to negotiate with the gay-killing, terrrorist supporting regime in Iran, but eagerly grants them major concessions. But he will not negotiate with Congressional Republicans.

Leftie psychology update

Enough lefties understand that President Obama is drowning in scandals of his own creation that comedy shows can begin to talk about it:

But other lefties remain mired in denial:

Oprah…[said] “There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American. There’s no question about that and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it.”

Oprah ignores the fact that Americans elected Obama twice; the fact that everybody on the Left has been ‘saying it’ for years; and the fact that Democrats, to this day, show the greatest of disrespect to President Bush. Never mind the question of whether Obama has been dragging down the office with his unpresidential behavior.

Democrats in the Obama Era: Looking for Mr. Goldstein

In my “pre-mortem” on the Virginia gubernatorial election, I noted that Terry McAuliffe would win not because he offered a positive message of reform, but because he spent millions of dollars demonizing his Republican opponent.  He secure his victory in the Old Dominion this month just as Barack Obama secured his nationally last year, by running the political equivalent of a scorched earth campaign.  Their ideas not resonating with the American people, it’s all the Democrats have.

They are always looking for someone to demonize, to scare voters into voting for them to prevent some horrible, no good, very bad right-wing extremist from seizing the reins of power and taking away their birth control or their Mommy.  Or whatever.  To hold onto power, Democrats need an Emmanuel Goldstein.  Remember what they did to Sarah Palin, later the Koch Brothers and most recently Ted Cruz?

As the reality of Obamacare sinks it, they need someone — or some industry — to distract us once again.  And once again we see that  Obama’s promise to break the Washington pattern where “everybody is always looking for somebody else to blame” was, as he might put it, “just words,” his Democrats are seeking to pin the blame somewhere else, urging the “White House to attack health insurance companies“.

No, it can’t be Obama’s policies which have caused havoc on the health insurance market when these really bad, horrible extreme corporate profiteers are out there.

The vengeful greed – and stupidity – of today’s liberals

As Obamacare inflicts serious rate hikes on most consumers, quotes like the following are making the rounds:

In his story, reporter Chad Terhune also quoted a letter sent to a California insurance company executive. “I was all for Obamacare,” wrote a young woman complaining about a 50 percent rate hike related to the health care law, “until I found out I was paying for it.”

At first glance, one may admire the speaker’s sharp tongue. She gets to the heart of the matter.

But what is she really saying? That she wants to be generous with Other People’s Money. Not hers! For her, the key moral and emotional transaction in politics is to make herself feel good by having government take from others; by literally making others pay.

She also reveals that she has no idea how life works. She seriously thought that health care could be made “free” (i.e., sick people heavily subsidized, in inefficient exchanges that the government forces people to be in against their will) without herself having to pay the price for it, sooner or later, in some form.

I propose a politics where people are free to choose, and to keep most of what they earn.

  • If they choose to spend their lives productively, they keep most of the results (and can give to others, if they wish to).
  • If they choose not to spend their lives productively, then they bear most the consequences (although they will probably still find help from family, friends, and pro bono doctors/clinics, not limited to emergency rooms).
  • Life’s transactions are voluntary – requiring both sides to feel they’re gaining in some way, or else the transaction doesn’t happen – and, as such, tend to get cheaper and more efficient over time.

Everyone wins. Except, perhaps, the short-sighted and the vengeful.

So, lying is only a problem when Republicans do it?

MSNBC Contributor Tells Hugh Hewitt Obama Deliberately Lied About Obamacare (Via Instapundit)

Wonder what Mr. Page said about George W. Bush’s alleged dishonesty

Guess Who actually calls its opponents unpatriotic and wants to jail them?

Item #366,720 in the archives of “The Left is and does, that of which it falsely accuses the Right.”

At, more than 44,000 have called for the GOP leaders to be arrested for ‘seditious conspiracy’ over the recent government shutdown (and ‘default’ scare). As ZH points out, that’s more people than have signed up for Obamacare.

Needless to say, MoveOn’s petition is a FAIL on several levels: (more…)

Didn’t someone once call this level of debt “unpatriotic”?

Posted by B. Daniel Blatt at 12:30 pm - October 19, 2013.
Filed under: Big Government Follies,Liberal Hypocrisy

As I caught this headline, U.S. debt jumps a record $328 billion — tops $17 trillion for first time, I recalled hearing a politician once call huge increases in debt unpatriotic.

Just found the clip on Youtube:

Twenty months ago today, CBS News reported that the “national debt has increased more under Obama than under Bush“:

The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office.

The latest posting from the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department shows the National Debt now stands at $15.566 trillion. It was $10.626 trillion on President Bush’s last day in office, which coincided with President Obama’s first day.

The federal government has added an additional $1.509 trillion in debt since the date when the debt accumulated under Obama exceeded than accumulated under Bush.  And the Democrat has not yet completed a full five years in office.  George W. Bush served for eight full years.

McCaskill to everybody who doesn’t work for her: Drop Dead!

The benevolence of our overlords on display today as Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri expresses her sympathy for those lowly prolitariat forced to abide by her legislative edicts.

As Lindsay Graham (of all people?!) actually shows some fortitude by insisting on a vote on the Vitter Amendment (which would subject all Hill employees, from the Senators and Representatives themselves to their most junior of staffers with the actual cost of Obamacare the rest of us have to suffer), the Rolla reprobate finds it within her generous heart to stand up for the less-fortunate. Er, or at least the less fortunate with whom she has the misfortune to have to be in physical contact on a regular basis. Her reaction:

“I don’t mind giving up mine,” Missouri Democrat Claire McCaskill said of the federal contribution to her personal health insurance. “I’m in a much [better situation] than the young ladies and the young men that work for me that have just gotten out of college with large student debts and that are still trying to figure out if they can afford the rent in Washington, D.C., or the car payment in Columbia, Mo.”

What about those less fortunate who aren’t blessed with working for someone who actually has the authority to exempt them from this horrific law? If those freshly-minted college graduates who work for Senator McCaskill deserve better, how about their contemporaries who have chosen a career in something more productive than water-carrying for legislative tyrants?

So here you have someone who voted for Obamacare admitting how unaffordable the “Affordable” Care Act is…so much so that she wishes to deliver folks burdened with it from under its onerous requirements.

If only her sympathy and sense of service extended beyond the few hundred square feet of her Senate office.

Truly incredible.

Evidence that Obama did not succeed in changing Washington

Barack Obama, March 2009:

And one of the things that I’m trying to break is a pattern in Washington where everybody is always looking for somebody else to blame. And I think Geithner is doing an outstanding job. I think that we have a big mess on our hands. It’s not going to be solved immediately, but it is going to get solved. And the key thing is for everybody just to stay focused on doing the job instead of trying to figure out who you can pass blame on to.

Barack Obama, October 2013:

SOMEWHAT RELATED: Michael Barone is also pointing the finger: Blame James Madison for the government shutdown. Well, I guess that gets Obama off the hook.
