Dhimmitude on Steroids

Big time atheist Richard Dawkins had his speech cancelled by the sponsoring rado station KPFA in Berkeley.  Why, you might ask?  Well, the lefties at that "progressive" station couldn't bear up under the stress, after they discovered that Dawkins had been mean to Islamists.  That's right, this is the same Dawkins who routinely slams Judaism, Christianity, and every other religion, with thunderous applause from the left.  But when he factually stated his dislike for the violence and misogyny of Islam, boy howdy, that was a terrible thing to say. 

Are Berkeley leftists all imbeciles?  Do they really want to surrender freedom of speech?  Do they like the idea of submitting to Islam as second class citizens under conditions of dhimmitude?  Apparently, it's a yes to all three.

Gris, that would be a whole lot of beheadings.

By the way, does anyone know the Vegas line on how many more days Sessions has left in his life as AG? I'll say 10 days.

Racism, racism, racism. Racism EVERYWHERE. At least according to leftist knuckleheads like Eloy Ortiz Oakley, chancellor of California's community colleges. He is on record supporting the muddleheaded notion of removing advanced math courses the school system, because Algebra is racist. That's right. Algebra is mean to minorities. They tend to do poorly in the subject, so this "educator" wants to dumb down his schools so more minorities can get diplomas while remaining ignorant.

Leftism is truly a mental disorder.

July 25, 2017 at 07:10 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

More BLATANT racism, in the sick mind of another leftist fool. The Fish Wrapper of Record, the New York Times, has a sensitive reporter named Greg Howard who is convinced that white women are racists because of the intimidating way they walk. Apparently, this poor guy spends much of his walking time being forced off of sidewalks by mean ol' racist white women. It's an epidemic! Somebody needs to organize a march or something.

Leftism, mental illness, on and on.

So former Congressional testimony liar John Brennan is calling for government employees to ignore Trump orders if he fires Mueller i.e. government coup. First off this asshole still has a security clearance. Pull it today. Secondly; if Sessions wants to get back in the good graces of Trump he should appoint a Special Council to investigate Brennan for his involvement on spying on Congress...This fvcking A-hole is a snake and his juice is his security clearance and contacts. Cut off his information that he is surely leaking to the press, isolate him, investigate him and make him toxic... .Then throw his ass in prison...

"Fusion GPS Co-Founder Will Plead the Fifth

Glenn Simpson, whose Fusion GPS firm has been tied to anti-Trump efforts and pro-Russian lobbying, will not talk to lawmakers in response to a subpoena, the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Friday."

So let's see, Trump's people you know the one's "guilty of something" show up to Congress, answer questions, hand over all subpoena correspondence, don't bleach-bit their emails or take hammers to their hard drives but Obama-Clinton-DNC Operatives that take the 5th and innocent?

Ok.... Since Special Councils are in vogue we need another one on the Democrat Party...

Senator john McCain's speech would have been great during another era.
does he not understand what we are facing in this very country?
(Rhetorical question, of course he doesn't. He is of the faction he can rob Peter to pay Paul and Government knows best)
On thing the 'elite' or what ever you want to call THEM will never understand that we the Middle Class, the ones with the callouses and dirt under our fingernails do understand, you must take from the producers (us) to give to the Moochers and Looters. How much is enough?

I see that due to the idiocy of two mindlessly liberal Republicans, V.P. Pence had to cast the tie-breaking vote on health care debate. With "friends" like those two knuckleheads, who needs enemies?

Support Joe Miller, and help throw out Murkowski.

Interesting. Imran Awan, paid IT guru for Li'l Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has been arrested while trying to leave the country. He faces charges of bank fraud. Now might be a good time to cut a deal with this guy. It would be fun to see him sing like a bird in order to get out of his latest jam. No telling what secrets he could reveal.

July 26, 2017 at 08:36 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Red; remember when Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz threatened the Capitol Police Chief with 'consequences' if she didn't get her hard drives back which were evidence in an on-going criminal probe? A little update; the IT guy arrested at the airport trying to hightail it back to Pakistan had wired $300k the night before to Pakistan... Huh.... what could that be about....

July 26, 2017 at 09:15 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Addressing all this, the Democrat/Media Complex replied, "But TRUMP! RUSSIA!"

"Trump Bans Trans"

OMG the left is hyper ventilating over this one. Their screaming g on CNN why can't the military pay for gender reassignment surgeries? You mean instead of new weapons or safety? LOL, get your popcorn as Red likes to say "the spittle will be flying" today...

July 26, 2017 at 11:37 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

The military is not a social justice enterprise. Its purpose is to kill people and break things. Anything that hinders these tasks, and gender reassignment surgery and resultant distractions in the ranks certainly qualify as hindrances, need to be ended. Trump understands this.

Let the screaming lefties cry their little eyes out. This was a good decision, and overdue.

"Sea levels -- FALLING... "

NASA satellite measurements on earth sea levels show them as falling. OMG can this day get any worse for the left? First no transgenders in the military and now the holy grail of leftist climate change; rising sea levels is bullshit!!

Hollywood celebs are horrified on the cruel Trump measures to ban trans soldiers from 'manning' the wall. I mean Miley Cyrus from her private jet tweeted the Trans-Help Line for those to distraught to move on.. Ah' condolences from the Hollywood private jet set; heart warming.

July 26, 2017 at 17:40 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Perhaps those in the LBGT should put their money into building programs that actuate the changes needed in their community rather than political agendas. The time (years) and medical costs are too great for a divided society to absorb.
The military is the LAST place for social engineering.

July 27, 2017 at 07:05 | Unregistered Commentergriswold3

Another angle. If people outside the military want to carve themselves up, and "re-assign" as another sex, I won't try to stop them. But it's NOT my responsibility to pay for the mutilation. This is not "health care."

Conflicted this morning. It's probably wrong to be furious with a guy dying of a brain tumor, but I do want to find Lying John McCain and slap him across both of his faces. Same with Lying Murkowski. To her credit, more or less, RINO Susan Collins has stayed true to her position, as horribly wrong as it is.

Democrats remain united and unrelenting and almost honest in their efforts to destroy the country. But the word "Republican" means nothing, except weak, duplicitous, and utterly without a moral center.

July 28, 2017 at 09:55 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

The goal here is to destroy private insurance to usher in a government take over.
Where is the money going to come from for 18% of our GDP? The left isn't going to like the idea of those with means getting better treatment like 'all other industrialized nations'.

July 28, 2017 at 11:15 | Unregistered Commentergriswold3

Completely true, Gris. Obamacare was designed from the beginning to break the healthcare financing system to the point that single payer could be forced upon the public.

But it is likely the left will just ban people from seeking care outside the system, in the interest of "fairness".

The "system" in England would not let Charlie Gard's parents have control over his care even with funds they had raised themselves. He died today.

July 28, 2017 at 14:39 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

Let Obamacare die and then maybe, maybe we'll get back to a market based health care economy that takes care of more people cheaper, better, and more compassionately than what Charlie Gard got from government healthcare in the U.K.. Btw, the dems still own this. This flaming piece of shit Obamacare is their's until eternity...

July 28, 2017 at 18:36 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

In a proper reality, we wouldn't be having a discussion of how the feds should run our medical insurance, because they shouldn't be running any part of it. Not ObamaCommieCare, not McConnellCare, not the Skinny Bill crapola, not Repeal and Replace, NONE OF IT. The several states may do as they wish, but the feds have no authority to run any part of it.

So I guess being caught was stolen computers and IT equipment, investigated for espionage plus charged with wire transfer violations wasn't enough fro Debbie 'Blabbermouth' Schultz to fire her IT guy. Now the question is being asked was Deb getting the "hot love sausage ' from her IT guy? When every other sane demwit fired this guy months ago, Deb kept him on the payroll until he was arrested at Dulles airport getting ready to take his "love sausage" back to Pakistan... Oh' you demwits,
and you wonder why you run NOTHING...

Tom, I like having Winston around. It's a good reminder of just how nutty the left really is.

Speaking of nuts, the lefties have some allies in the field of astrology, who are predicting (hoping) that the solar eclipse will bring the end of Trump. And hey, if astrologers say so...........

Obamacare is having issues, but the scope of the issues are worse in some states. In Iowa there was for a time no company willing to write (that includes renewing existing policies) Obamacare plans for individuals effective in January, 2018.

The Iowa Insurance Commissioner is trying to get federal approval for a temporary backstop/reinsurance type arrangement which would allow one carrier, Medica, to remain and possibly make others change their mind about leaving the marketplace.

Before Medica said they would stay only if allowed a 46% rate increase, there were no carriers left, and 72,000 Iowans would have zero options in the individual health insurance market.

This explains what the Iowa Insurance Commissioner is trying to get the feds to approve, even he calls it an imperfect stopgap.

Obamacare has already broken the system in Iowa, as it was designed to do.

U of Iowa student newspaper writer introduces a new form of privilege.

Now, in addition to white privilege, he says there is cognitive privilege. Apparently It just isn't fair to stupid people that some folks have greater cognitive ability.

I assume Winston will be quite upset that Red and Tom won the cognitive lottery while he was left behind, if Winston finds someone to read and explain the article to him.

Kevin Allred, who teaches "gender, sexuality, and women’s studies" (whatever the hell that crap is) at Montclair State University, tweeted a profane request for someone to shoot Trump. In a nice turn of events, this raging cretin has been fired. Nice to see at least one school that won't tolerate such vile behavior.

Oh boy, listen to the wailing! Apparently, Trump's very correct threat to remove the special exemption for Congress, and force those privileged assholes to follow the rules of Obamacare like everyone else, is causing mucho anguish in the halls of the capitol. GOOD.

I see Ben Rhodes; former campaign limo driver and knee pad user to climb the D.C. power ladder for "President Shit Show" is under investigation for his unusual amount of unmasking requests from January 1, 2016 to January 2017 on Trump campaign personnel.. When political hacks like Rhodes can use government spy agencies as a campaign aid we're on the path to being no better than Venezuela... Great job demwits...
