Hillary shouldn’t be running for office; she should be doing stand up comedy.

Mrs. Bill Clinton Says Harvey Weinstein-Type Behavior ‘Can’t be Tolerated Anywhere’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was first lady to President Bill Clinton, told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria in an interview broadcast yesterday that the sort of behavior the movie magnate Harvey Weinstein engaged in “can’t be tolerated anywhere.” [snip]

Here is the transcript of an excerpt of Zakaria’s interview with Clinton:

Fareed Zakaria: “What was your reaction when you heard the news about Harvey Weinstein?”

Hillary Clinton: “I was just sick. I was shocked. I was appalled. It was something that was just intolerable in every way. And, you know, like so many people who have come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past.”

Zakaria: “Would you have called him a friend?”

Clinton: “Yes, I probably would have and so with so many others. You know, people in Democratic politics for a couple of decades appreciated his help and support. And I think these stories coming to light now and people who never spoke out before, having the courage to speak out just clearly demonstrates that this behavior that he engaged in cannot be tolerated and cannot be overlooked. And I’m hoping that the—“

Zakaria: “Do you think it was tolerated because he was powerful?”

Clinton: “I don’t know.”

Zakaria: “A lot of people say people knew.”

Clinton: “Well, I certainly didn’t and I don’t know who did. But I can only speak for myself and I think speak for many others who knew him primarily through politics. But the courage of these women coming forward now is really important because it can’t just end with one person’s disgraceful behavior and the consequence that he is now facing. This has to be a wake-up call and shine a bright spotlight on anything like this behavior anywhere at any time.

“We’ve had a series of revelations about companies in Silicon Valley, you know, just sexual harassment and sexual assault being kind of accepted. That’s the cutting edge of our economy. That’s where a lot of young people have their first or most significant jobs.

“This can’t be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s entertainment or tech or anywhere.”

Zakaria: “Senator Blumenthal says that people should give back the money that he donated to them. He donated money to you directly and indirectly. Would you give the money back?”

Clinton: “Well, there’s no one to give it back to. What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying is they’re going to donate it to charity. And, of course, I do that. I give 10 percent of my income to charity every year. This will be part of that. There’s no doubt about it.”

Why not? There isn’t a thing in the Constitution stating that one needs a permit to own or carry a gun. But journalists believe that the Second Amendment needs all sorts of controls. Why not the First Amendment too.

Lawmaker proposing media permits to show how unfair gun permits are

Lawmaker proposing media permits to show how unfair gun permits are

 A lawmaker in Indiana is proposing that the media be required to apply for a ‘journalism license.’

Indiana State Rep. Jim Lucas (R) proposed that journalists should meet the same requirements as gun owners, who have concealed carry permits, and drafted a bill that would mandate a license to practice it.“If you’re OK licensing my Second Amendment right, what’s wrong with licensing your First Amendment right?” Lucas told the IndyStar.

His bill would require that journalists apply for their license with the state police. The application process would cost $75, and each reporter would be fingerprinted. The lawmaker’s bill would reject journalists, who have a felony or domestic battery conviction.

The Indiana lawmaker equates the need for the media permit with the obligation for gun holders to have concealed carry licenses. Lucas has been a staunch opponent to gun permits and fees, but says that the media contributes to the negative stereotypes associated with gun laws. He thinks if gun owners are required to have permits, then the media should be held to the same standard saying that journalists play a significant role in the negative stigma associated with firearms.

“If I was as irresponsible with my handgun as the media has been with their keyboard, I’d probably be in jail,” he said.

Rep. Lucas, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, has been vocally against the state’s permit laws. To Lucas, Americans have a constitutional right to carry that should not require a permit.

Cynically, the lawmaker wants journalists to abide by the same rules that gun holders do to emphasize the inappropriateness of permit requirements. [snip]

Obama’s hero,Bergdahl and parents wee invited to White House.

Army Sgt. Bergdahl pleading guilty to desertion, misbehavior

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told a military judge on Monday that he’s pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

“I understand that leaving was against the law,” said Bergdahl, whose decision to walk off his remote post in Afghanistan in 2009 prompted intense search and recovery missions, during which some of his comrades were seriously wounded.

“At the time, I had no intention of causing search and recovery operations,” Bergdahl said, but he added that now he does understand that his decision prompted efforts to find him.

Bergdahl, 31, is accused of endangering his comrades by abandoning his post without authorization. He told a general after his release from five years in enemy hands that he did it with the intention of reaching other commanders and drawing attention to what he saw as problems with his unit. [snip]

This indicates that they did not reach a deal to limit his punishment, and that he may be hoping for leniency from the judge, Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance. The misbehavior charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison, while the desertion charge is punishable by up to five years. [snip]

Just what we need in Congress. There are enough mental defectives sitting in chairs in DC now without another running for a space. Call he Men in Black!

Miami politician says aliens took her on a spaceship. Now she’s running for Congress.

Florida has a U.S. senator who once flew aboard the Space Shuttle.

A congressional candidate from Miami can go one better: Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera says she’s been aboard a spaceship too. But this one was crewed by aliens. As in extraterrestrials.

Three blond, big-bodied beings — two females, one male — visited her when she was 7 years old and have communicated telepathically with her several times in her life, she says. (Sen. Bill Nelson served as payload officer aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia in 1986. All seven people aboard were from Earth. As far as is known.)

Rodriguez Aguilera, 59, a Republican who is running to replace retiring Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, recounted her experience with the ETs during a 2009 television interview.

She described “going up” inside the spaceship — though whether it went into space or just hovered around town was left unclear.

“I went in. There were some round seats that were there, and some quartz rocks that controlled the ship — not like airplanes,” Rodriguez Aguilera said.

In two separate videos posted to YouTube years ago, one by local Spanish-language station America TeVe and another by a political critic with the user name DoralGirl26, Rodriguez Aguilera spoke on television in detail about her extraterrestrial experiences. She said the alien beings reminded her of the famous statue in Rio de Janeiro, Christ the Redeemer, with arms outstretched.

Among the things she said she found out from the aliens:

  • There are 30,000 skulls — “different from humans” — in a cave in the Mediterranean island of Malta.
  • The world’s “energy center” is in Africa.
  • The Coral Castle, a limestone tourist attraction South Miami-Dade, is actually an ancient Egyptian pyramid.
  • “God is a universal energy.”

She also said that the aliens had mentioned Isis, though she didn’t clarify if they meant the terrorist organization or the ancient Egyptian goddess.

Honoring the NFL and ‘Free Speech’

The State owned Media colludes with the NFL to make sure that the clowns players rights to FREE SPEECH is not impinged. We note how they always stood up for thin in the past.

IF you watch a game, think about how these players were treated for their Speech rights.

NFL History – Says it all

    • In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his blackout to avoid glare and made him take it off.
    • In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.
    • In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said “Know Jesus Know Peace” but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.
    • In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing “Find the Cure” eye black for breast cancer awareness.
    • In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem…)
    • In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.
    • In 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.
    • So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression all of a sudden….

I know of no white person alive today in the United States who has ever legally owned a black slave, or any slave for that matter. Almost 700,000 mostly white men died 160 years ago to end slavery. Jim Crow ended generations ago. Yet black America, for the most part, is still locked in inner-city gang violence and economic hardship. Why?

Is it because America is racist?  Is it because of some overhanging white privilege supremacy?  Is it because of the Illuminati?

No, unfortunately, it is because of black culture and LBJ’s War On Poverty in January 1964, and the adoption of the Progressive Democratic Party’s BIG government dependency.

We have just had eight years of the first black president.  Black athletes, and entertainers, routinely earn multi-million dollar incomes.  I can easily name several black billionaires without even trying too hard. A large percentage of black America is very successful. But, it is not enough. Too many black youth are being left behind.

And it is no one but black America’s fault.  

No one can solve this problem but black America.  No one can throw enough money at it.  We’ve been doing that since 1964, to the tune of $22,000,000,000,000 (that’s trillion with a T). Black America needs to look in the mirror and stop blaming others, especially white people.

I am obviously white and conservative, and I served in the military, which, during my time, was as color blind as you could be. I can also honestly say I don’t give a damn what color your skin is, neither do any of my friends.  I do care about your actions.

Blacks are around 15 percent of the population. Depending on what study you look at, they commit around 40 percent to 50 percent of violent crimes in America (mostly against each other). Of course, there is going to be a problem with police.  And, of course, there are some bad policemen. However, those bad apples do not kill black people statistically anymore than they kill white people.  Even Harvard University research said that recently. If you were a cop, and you had to work in a neighborhood infested with crime and murder, wouldn’t you act differently than in a neighborhood where there was little to no crime? The most effective thing black America could do to improve its relationship with police is to significantly reduce violent crime where they live.  Yes, that means change the culture of where you live and your community.

I for one am tired of being blamed.  I am tired of dealing with people who only want something from others.  I don’t oppress anyone.  I don’t hold anyone down.  I’m tired of getting on the D.C. metro and seeing white people being harassed by roaming gangs of black youth with their pants around their knees.  Yes, you want a white person uncomfortable?  That makes me uncomfortable.  It’s our nation’s capital and it’s embarrassing.

Blacks have nothing but opportunity in America.  Try finding the same opportunity anywhere else in the world.  If you are born in America, you’ve won life’s economic lottery.  Take advantage of it.  

The problem is this generation has been taught an agenda of social justice and cultural Marxism by our public education system.  They’ve been taught to be a victim, and it’s still going on.  All you have to do is watch the young black, female student at Yale screaming at the college president to understand that.  Blacks in America don’t even know how good they got it.

Don’t kneel when my anthem is played.  Too many people died for that flag.  You are free to protest but not then.  I am free to not watch, or pay to watch you play if you do that.  The NFL should make it a rule that you stand for the national anthem.  There is no free speech to disobey a private employer on private property.  This would solve the problem immediately.

The NFL has deeply offended most of America.  They will pay an economic and reputational price, as they should.

We have a real cultural problem in this country, the result of the Progressive Democratic-Socialist- Communist-Leftist multicultural agenda.  Multi-ethnicity is perfect and should be encouraged.  Having more than one American culture is destroying the country.  But then again, that is exactly what the Progressive Democratic Party Leftists want and encourage.

October Arctic surprise: Rapid recovery of ice extent

  1. October Arctic Surprise: Rapid Recovery Of Ice Extent
    Ron Clutz, Science Matters, 7 October 2017 In recent years, October has seen some rapid recoveries of Arctic ice extents.  But this year may become something special.
    With the early onset of Siberian snow cover and the resulting surface cooling, ice is roaring back, especially on the Asian side. Consider the refreezing during the last 11 days through yesterday.
  2. Tony Abbott, Green Attacks And Ridley’s Paradox
    Paul Matthews, Climate Scepticism, 10 October 2017 Tony Abbott, former PM of Australia, gave the annual GWPF lecture on Monday night. Predictably, the talk has been attacked, thereby giving it lots of publicity, and equally predictably, there is no substance to the attacks.
  3. Green Activists Face Up To 21 Years In Prison As Judge Rejects Climate Change Excuse
    The New York Times, 10 October 2017 A lawyer for an environmental activist convicted of targeting an oil pipeline in North Dakota said he doesn’t think a judge’s decision disallowing the threat of global warming as a defense to justify the crime would be grounds for an appeal.
  4. Germany’s Green Caste System Contributed To Merkel’s Electoral Losses
    Daily Caller, 9 October 2017  The country’s hefty solar subsides have created a have and have-not type caste system in Germany, the report notes. Germany’s poorest citizens began joining ranks with Merkel’s chief political opponent after subsides caused electricity bills to skyrocket.
  5. Germany Set To Widely Miss Climate Targets, Environment Ministry Warns
    Clean Energy Wire, 11 October 2017 Germany’s environment ministry fears high emissions from coal-fired power plants and transport will make the country miss its 2020 climate targets by a wider margin than previously anticipated. The ministry’s warning adds further pressure to make fast progress on climate-related issues in upcoming talks aimed at forming a new government following September’s general elections.
  6. Obama’s Clean Power Plan Is Finally Getting The Axe. But Climate Skeptics Want More
    E&E News, 11 October 2017  The Trump administration today will officially announce the end of the Clean Power Plan, a regulation limiting planet-warming carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. But the conservative crowd that’s skeptical about climate change says its work is just beginning.
  7. CEI Analysis: EPA Proposes Clean Power Plan Repeal Rule
    Competitive Enterprise Institute, 9 October 2017 On Tuesday, October 10, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is expected to release the agency’s proposed rule to repeal the Clean Power Plan (CCP). The CPP, which aims to reduce U.S. electric power sector carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, was the Obama administration’s marquee domestic climate policy and principal regulatory component of the U.S. emission-reduction pledge under the Paris Climate Accord. On Friday, October 6, someone leaked the repeal rule a few days before its official debut. In this post, I provide excerpts and offer commentary on the leaked document.
