After Kat Von D held a beauty contest, she retroactively changed the rules because the original winner turned out to be a Trump supporter

A person named Kat Von D recently held a beauty contest.

The winner was a makeup artist from Wichita, Kansas named Gypsy Freeman.

As the winner, Freeman had been promised two airline tickets to Los Angeles to attend the launch party for a new Von D makeup line, as well as a $500 gift card to Sephora.

However,  Freeman’s victory was later revoked when Von D found out that Freeman had praised Donald Trump on her Instagram page.

After 28 hours, Delta Air Line’s only answer for why it made Ann Coulter give up her prepaid seat is “I don’t know”

When you buy an airline ticket, you are entering into a contract which allows the airline to make you give up your seat.

However, if and when the airline does make you give up your seat, it is supposed to offer a reasonable explanation.

Republican National Committee falsely says “delivery of a voice message directly to a voicemail box does not constitute a call”

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/ringless-spam-voicemails-became-partisan-issue-194125213.html

How ringless spam voicemails became a partisan issue

June 29, 2017

If there’s anything good about ringless voicemails, it’s the fact that they bring people together. These voicemails that simply appear on your phone seem to invite universal hatred.

Indeed, the FCC has gotten almost 2,800 complaints about ringless voicemails in June alone. Among the complaints: lost business due to spam clogging the mailbox, added data costs from checking messages, mailboxes flooded to capacity unable to receive messages from family.

“My phone — bought and paid for by me — exists for my convenience, and not to provide a portal into my life for unsolicited contacts of any nature,” said one Georgian to the FCC.

The robocall war has been hard enough to fight with the support of the FCC. (Recently, the FCC scored a win in this war, slapping a $120 million fine on a robocaller after TripAdvisor tracked down the culprit.) And now ringless voicemails have become the latest battleground for telephone annoyance since the FCC was asked in late March to consider exempting ringless voicemails from its do-not-call rules by a marketing company called All About the Message, LLC. (The Do Not Call Registry provides telemarketers with a list of numbers it’s illegal to dial.)

Perhaps unexpectedly, however, the ringless voicemail debate suddenly became a partisan issue.

Ringless voicemails go viral

On May 18, the Republican National Committee got involved, filing comments with the FCC in support of All About the Message saying the “delivery of a voice message directly to a voicemail box does not constitute a call,” and is not subject to telephone consumer protection rules. RNC chief counsel John R. Phillippe, Jr. wrote that a contrary ruling “would have serious consequences for the First Amendment rights of those engaged in political communication via telephone.”

Busted: Fox News reported on Trump Jr.’s emails – after they scrubbed any mention of Russian government

BUSTED: Fox Reported on Trump Jr.’s Emails—After They Scrubbed Any Mention of Russian Government

The president’s favorite network continues to downplay the obvious collusion.

July 11, 2017

A senior reporter for Fox News edited out any mention of “Russian” while reporting on Donald Trump Jr.’s emails.

Chief Intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reported on “key sections” of the Trump Jr. email changes, while editing out mention of Russia, Media Matters for America documented.

“This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump,” the email read.

“This is obviously very high level and sensitive information … I can also send this info to your father via Rhona but it’s ultra sensitive so wanted to send it to you first,” Herridge reported the email read, completely skipping over mention of Russia while reporting on investigations into Russian collusion.

The June 9, 2016 meeting with Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower included namesake son Donald Trump Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

“Shortly after Herridge’s report, co-host Meghan McCain filled in the missing quote about the Russian government, noting that it is “the biggest concern in these emails,” Media Matters noted. “Fox has consistently tried to either ignore, or downplay news surrounding Trump and Russia, and has gone as far as creating an alternate reality to distract its viewers. The network’s reaction to these new developments is just the latest example.”

San Francisco says it would be “racially insensitive” to let the public see security camera footage of crimes

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2017/07/09/bart-withholding-surveillance-videos-of-crime-to-avoid-stereotypes/

BART Withholding Surveillance Videos Of Crime To Avoid ‘Stereotypes’

July 9, 2017

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — In the last three months, there have been at least three robberies on BART involving groups of teenagers.

“I think people are genuinely concerned — they are fearful about the stories that have come out about the recent attacks, the assaults, the thefts,” said Debora Allen, who is a member of the BART Board of Directors.

April 22: Forty to sixty kids boarded a train at the Coliseum stop and robbed seven passengers, beating up two;

June 28: A group of four kids assaulted a passenger and made off with a cell phone at Dublin; and

June 30: A woman on a train with about a dozen teenagers had her phone snatched by one them before the group got off at the Coliseum stop. Thankfully, a good Samaritan was on hand to retrieve the phone.

So far, BART has refused to turn over surveillance video for any of these incidents.

Allen told us the agency issued an explanation for why it is being tight-lipped about the thefts.

“To release these videos would create a high level of racially insensitive commentary toward the district,” she was told. “And in addition it would create a racial bias in the riders against minorities on the trains.”

According to a memo distributed to BART Directors, the agency won’t do a press release on the June 30 theft because it was a “petty crime” that would make BART look “crime ridden.” Furthermore, it would “unfairly affect and characterize riders of color, leading to sweeping generalizations in media reports.”

The memo was from BART Assistant General Manager Kerry Hamill.

Allen emailed Hamill, “I don’t understand what role the color of one’s skin plays in this issue [of whether to divulge information]. Can you explain?” Hamill responded, “If we were to regularly feed the news media video of crimes on our system that involve minority suspects, particularly when they are minors, we would certainly face questions as to why we were sensationalizing relatively minor crimes and perpetuating false stereotypes in the process.” And added her opinion of the media: “My view is that the media’s real interest in the videos of youth phone snatching incidents isn’t the desire for transparency but rather the pursuit of ratings. They know that video of these events will drive clicks to their websites and viewers to their programs because people are motivated by fear.”

Allen says scared passengers aren’t being unreasonable — being on a BART train is a vulnerable position.

“This is BART, people are sort of trapped in this train for awhile and they have a right to see what could potentially happen.”

She says all this raises questions, “What is the priority of BART? Is the safety of the passenger — of all passengers — is that a lesser priority than the race bias issue?”

According to BART spokesman Taylor Huckaby, state law protecting “juvenile police records” prevents them from showing the surveillance video, even though at least one of the people arrested for the April 22 attack is 19 years old. (He cited Cal. Gov’t Code 827.9) And, even if the faces of juveniles were blurred, Huckaby says watching the videos would be pointless gawking.

German judge says it’s OK for Muslim men to rape women because it’s part of their “cultural circle”

https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/04/21/german-judge-acquits-turkish-man-of-rape-after-4-hours-of-forced-violent-sex/

German Judge Says Turkish Man’s Forced Violent Sex Is ‘Culturally’ Not Rape

April 21, 2017

A German judge has acquitted a Turkish man of rape, despite the fact that he forced a woman to have sex with him, and left her incapacitated. The judge argued that in “the mentality of the Turkish cultural circle,” what the woman “had experienced as rape” might be considered merely “wild sex.” The judge refused to convict the rapist, because “no intention is demonstrable.”

According to the German daily newspaper Märkische Allgemeine (forgive the weak translation from Google Translate), the judge told the woman, “I believe Mrs. G. every word,” but added that “her tormentor probably did not know what he was doing to her.” On the night of August 18, 2016, the 23-year-old Turkish man sold drugs to the young woman and they consumed speed together.

He asked her to “go to bed with her” and she refused. According to the report, she had said he was “not her type.” But the drug dealer forced himself on her. Here’s how the paper described the encounter:

The young drug trader then complimented his customer, dragged her by the arm, threw her on the bed and pulled her out. He shoved his shoulders firmly against the metal bars at the head of his bed, his head jammed between two of them. The woman cried “stop” and resisted by scratching the accused at the back. But at some point she gave up and let her go as she put it. Several times he had entered her, the whole ordeal ended after four hours, when he got a call and suddenly had to leave, so that she too could go.

She refused, cried “stop” after he had grabbed her, and then finally she gave up. To most people, that sounds like rape. Indeed, the German paper reported that the Turkish man “carried on the sexual intercourse for hours on end so badly” that the girl could “not run properly for the next two weeks.”

“On the one hand, the magistrate’s court believed the victim, and on the other hand, the accused, according to which the wild sex was amicable,” the Märkische Allgemeine reported. Amicable? When the girl could not even run properly “for the next two weeks”?!

According to the report, the decisive question was “Could it be that the defendant thought you were in agreement?” To this, the poor girl — who had given up struggling after she had been raped — said “that could be.”

“She could not judge whether, with the mentality of the Turkish cultural circle, he had thought the happenings she experienced as rape might have been for wild sex,” the paper reported. “A conviction is not possible, because no intention is demonstrable.”

In other words, the judge acquitted a rapist — whom the court had “no doubt” forced the victim to have sex with him — on the grounds that his culture might not have considered the sex — which left the girl unable to run for two weeks — to be rape.

Oh, and of course, the defendant “denied from the beginning that he had raped” the girl. His defense? “He would not do such a thing, especially since he himself had a mother and a sister.” That clinches it! What American court would buy this shoddy defense?

According to the Märkische Allgemeine, “rape causes relatively few convictions before German courts.” The paper cited a 2012 study showing that only 8.4 percent of men accused of rape were convicted.

The percentage of conviction is not in itself proof that the court system is too lax on rapists. (That argument has been used to push for rape findings and expulsions against countless American college men despite evidence that no rape has occurred.) But this case seems rather clear-cut, and the “cultural” defense laughable, if it weren’t so tragic.

Unfortunately, this is far from the first time Germany has faced a rape crisis. On New Year’s Eve 2016, more than 1,200 women were sexually assaulted in various German cities, and authorities linked the sexual assaults to the influx of refugees. German politicians refused to speak out about these heinous crimes, perhaps due to fear of offending Muslims.

The problem with this strategy is that by turning a blind eye to violent rapists in order to avoid offending Muslims, liberals end up alienating the Muslims who do condemn rape, and want to see fewer rapes in their own communities.

Acquitting this Turkish man of rape sends the message that foreigners, or refugees, or Muslims, can claim their culture interprets forced sex as “wild sex.” Not only does this condone rape, but it also might endanger women in Muslim communities, thus hurting the very people liberals are so afraid of offending.

Sweden prosecutes woman for truthfully saying that immigrants were pooping in the streets

Sweden: 70-Year-Old Woman Prosecuted For Complaining About Migrants Defecating In The Streets

May 2017

A 70-year-old Swedish woman is facing up to four years in prison for complaining on Facebook about migrants defecating in the streets.

From Fria Tider (translated from Swedish with Google):

A 70 year old woman in Dalarna prosecuted for hate speech after writing on Facebook that immigrants are defecating in the streets, writes DT.se.

According to the prosecution, the woman via Facebook wrote disparagingly of people with a foreign background.

In a post from 2015, she has written that immigrants “set cars on fire and urinate and defecate in the streets.”

This violates the law on incitement to racial hatred, according to the prosecutor.

The accused woman in police interrogation admitted that she wrote the post, but denied that she committed a criminal act.

The evidence against the 70-year-old woman is a screenshot from Facebook.

The penalty for incitement to racial hatred is imprisonment not exceeding two years or, for petty offenses, fines. If the offense is considered to be grave sentenced the defendants to prison terms of between six months and four years.

She’s being dragged into court and threatened with jail for a two year old Facebook post which is factually correct.

While the Western media and leftist “human rights” groups will whine about attacks on free speech in places like China and Russia, in Sweden and Germany they’re throwing people in prison for writing “anti-migrant” Facebook posts.

In Chicago during the fourth of July weekend, more than 100 Democrats shot each other

Chicago’s city council currently has 49 Democrats and 1 Republican.

The mayor is a Democrat.

The city clerk is a Democrat.

The city treasurer is a Democrat.

The last time Chicago elected a Republican mayor was in the year 1927.

During the recent fourth of July weekend in Chicago, 102 people were shot.

15 of those people were killed.

We don’t see anything like this in any of the U.S. cities that are controlled by Republicans.

Never forget: President Obama forced successful supermarket chains to sell supermarkets to a failing company that shut them down

In September 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had forced supermarket chains Albertsons and Safeway to sell some of their supermarkets to the Haggen supermarket chain. The Los Angeles Times reported:

Albertsons and Safeway were ordered by federal regulators to divest those locations

Six months after buying the supermarkets, Haggen declared bankruptcy, and said it would close at least 100 of its supermarkets. According to the Orange County register, grocery strategist Burt P. Flickinger said:

“This is the fastest (failure) in modern supermarket history… In all of retail, I haven’t seen anything like this.”

San Francisco forces taxpayers to give $190,000 to drunk driving, illegal alien, because the city reported him to immigration officials

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2017/06/28/san-francisco-pay-undocumented-immigrant-sanctuary-policy/

San Francisco To Pay Undocumented Immigrant $190K For Violating Sanctuary Policy

June 28, 2017

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — San Francisco taxpayers could soon pay $190,000 in a lawsuit settlement with an undocumented immigrant who claimed he was reported to federal immigration authorities in violation of the city’s sanctuary city ordinance, the City Attorney’s office confirms to KPIX5.

The settlement is expected to be confirmed by San Francisco supervisors in future hearings.

Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno walked into the police station on December 2, 2015 to recover his stolen car.

When he left the station, he was immediately taken into custody by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

A document from federal immigration authorities released by his attorneys indicates that a San Francisco police officer directly contacted ICE and told them where to find Figueroa-Zarceno, the man’s attorneys and representatives said Wednesday.

The apparent incident, which led to the two-month detention of Figueroa-Zarceno, could be a violation of Sanctuary City policies placing limits on local law enforcement’s ability to cooperate with immigration officials, according to his attorneys.

Figueroa-Zarceno, a native of El Salvador with a fiancee who is a U.S. citizen and an eight-year-old daughter, was released Wednesday.

Speaking through an interpreter, Figueroa-Zarceno said that once he was at the station he was detained and handcuffed, and told that police needed to ask him questions. No questions were asked, but after a few minutes he was released out a side door, where an ICE agent was waiting outside to detain him.

“I could hear my daughter screaming outside the van, Dad! Dad!” he said. “I could hear her telling them not to take her dad.”

The city approved a Sanctuary City policy in 1989 prohibiting city officials from enforcing immigration laws in most cases as a way to encourage immigrant communities to trust and cooperate with police.

A second 2013 ordinance, Due Process for All, prohibits San Francisco law enforcement from detaining people on behalf of immigration authorities for deportation unless they are wanted for a serious crime.

Figueroa-Zarceno’s attorneys said the ICE document released Friday indicates that the sheriff’s department contacted ICE on Dec. 2 stating that a “final order fugitive” had been contacted by San Francisco police.

At the same time, the document states, a San Francisco police officer contacted the ICE duty officer directly and told him Figueroa-Zarceno was at the police station. He was taken into custody by ICE around half an hour later.

ICE officials confirmed the detention but would not comment on the documents released Friday.

Zachary Nightingale, Figueroa-Zarceno’s attorney, said the document shows that while he served two days for a DUI in 2012, there were no criminal warrants for Figueroa-Zarceno in the system, only a civil deportation order dating back to 2005.

A judge has since reopened Figueroa-Zarceno’s immigration case after finding that the initial order was given without proper notification, and a new hearing is now scheduled for 2019, Nightingale said.

Eileen Hirst, a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s department, said a warrant for Figueroa-Zarceno was found in a national criminal database when police ran his name through the system, and the sheriff’s department called ICE to confirm that warrant, as is routinely done with all warrants.

The department did not provide his location to immigration authorities during that call, she said.

Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said in a statement Friday that then-Police Chief Greg Suhr had informed Mayor Ed Lee that Figueroa-Zarceno “never should have been taken into custody by ICE agents after being released from Southern Police Station.”

“It is the policy of the San Francisco Police Department to foster trust and cooperation with all people of the City and to encourage them to communicate with SFPD officers without fear of inquiry regarding their immigration status,” the statement said.

The department is investigating and if any violations of policies and procedures are found, “there will be serious consequences,” the statement said.

John Coté, a spokesman for the Office of San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera said, “San Francisco has strong policies in place to encourage victims and witnesses to report crimes without fear of being deported, which include our sanctuary ordinance. These policies are designed to foster respect and trust between law enforcement and residents to ensure our communities are safe. The City, including the Police Department, remain committed to them.”

Coté said, “This proposed settlement is a fair resolution for all of the parties involved.”

Mayor Lee said he’d spoken with officials at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security about the case last week, and is “pleased” that Figueroa-Zarceno has been released.

Supervisor John Avalos said the incident was an illustration of how collaboration with immigration authorities can erode the trust between the community and local law enforcement.

It also highlighted the increased “politicization” of immigration during the election season, as seen in the national response last year to the fatal shooting of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco, allegedly by an undocumented immigrant who had been released from custody a short time earlier.

Video: CNN political commentator Van Jones: “The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger”

Oh my.

Yesterday, we found out about a hidden camera video recording which showed CNN Producer John Bonifield saying that:

1) There is no real proof for CNN’s claims about the association between Donald Trump and Russia.

2) CNN told these lies about Trump and Russia for the ratings.

3) CNN is engaging in a “witch hunt” against Trump.

Here’s that video:

Today, we have a different hidden camera video recording. This one shows CNN political commentator Van Jones saying:

“The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger.”

Van Jones, as you may recall, was President Obama’s green czar. He resigned in September 2009, after it was reported that he was a self described “communist” and had blamed George W. Bush for the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Here’s the new Van Jones video:

Here’s the “hate speech” video (i.e., speech against Islamic terrorism) that got a U.S. tourist arrested in Canada

Here are two videos by a YouTuber who calls himself “Wild Bill for America.”

The first video is a speech that he gave when he was in the U.S. In the speech, he criticizes Islamic terrorism.

In the second video, he explains how he was arrested for “smuggling hate speech” in Canada because he was planning to give the exact same speech in Canada, and he had the text of the speech on his IPAD that he was carrying with him.

Bernie and Jane Sanders, under FBI investigation for bank fraud, hire lawyers

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/bernie-and-jane-sanders-under-fbi-investigation-for-bank-fraud-hire-lawyers/

Bernie and Jane Sanders, under FBI investigation for bank fraud, hire lawyers

June 23, 2017

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and his wife, Jane Sanders have hired prominent defense attorneys amid an FBI investigation into a loan Jane Sanders obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president, CBS News confirms.

Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders’ top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents’ allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People’s United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution.

According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.

Burlington attorney and Sanders supporter Rich Cassidy has reportedly been hired to represent Sen. Sanders. And high-profile Washington defense attorney Larry Robbins, who counseled I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, is protecting Jane Sanders.

Ms. Sanders’ push for the liberal arts college’s costly land acquisition was cited in a press release by the college when it shut down in 2016.

Brady Toensing of Burlington, the man responsible for the claims filed to the U.S. attorney for Vermont, was a chairman for the Trump campaign in his state.

“I filed a request for an investigation in January 2016 and an investigation appears to have been started right away,” he said in an email to CBS News. “It was started under President Obama, his Attorney General, and his U.S. Attorney, all of whom are Democrats.”

“My only hope is for a fair, impartial, and thorough investigation,” Toensing added.

Weaver told CBS News that Toensing’s claim that Sen. Sanders used his influence to lobby for the loan is a “political charge” that is “baseless” and “false.”

And as for the claim that Ms. Sanders manipulated the loan application, Weaver said, “The loan was approved by the financial board at the college.”

Sen. Sanders, formerly mayor of Burlington, Vermont’s largest city, regards the claims as a political game levied against him after his run for president in the 2016 primary election, a platform which has transformed the small-state senator into an influential voice in American liberal politics.

Hillary Clinton and hundreds of college students switch from anger to silence when they find out that a hate crime of assault and racial slurs by whites against blacks was fake, and that the assaults had actually been committed by blacks against whites

At the University of Albany, three black students claimed that they were the victims of phsyical assault and racial slurs.

However, forensic evidence (twelve different security cameras – some with audio) proved that they had been lying. There was no hate crime. It was all fake. In addition, it turned out that all three of the black “victims” had themselves committed assault against whites.

When Hillary Clinton had thought this was a real hate crime by whites against blacks, she – justifiably so – criticized the people who had allegedly committed it, saying “There’s no excuse for racism and violence on a college campus.” But now that forensic evidence has proven that it was a fake hate crime, Clinton refuses to criticize the black people who carried out the hoax, despite the fact that these black people were filmed on video committing assault against whites.

Likewise, the hundreds of hypocrite social justice warriors who had – justifiably so – gotten mad and protested when they had thought it was a real hate crime, are now being silent now that it has been proven that it was a fake hate crime, again, despite the fact that the black hoaxers were filmed on video committing assault against white people.

And as far as the black people who committed this fake hate crime? They are getting zero time in jail, despite the fact that all three of them had committed assault against white people.

There is a huge double standard going on here.

Trump should return the Washington Redskins’ trademark protection that Obama took away

In June 2014, the Obama administration revoked trademark protection for the Washington Redskins’ name because some people thought it was offensive.

This set a horrible precedent.

Just about every R-rated movie includes content that someone would consider offensive, whether that content be violence, sex, profanity, etc. The same can be said for the content of many books, the lyrics of many songs, the content of many paintings, etc. If any copyright, patent, trademark, etc., can be revoked because someone finds it offensive, then I can’t even begin to imagine how much damage this would cause to the concept of intellectual property, as well as to the arts, sciences, music, literature, movies, etc.

There is no such thing as a right to not be offended. The whole point of protecting free speech in the first place is to protect speech that some people might find offensive. If we only protected speech that was dull, bland, and non-controversial, there wouldn’t be much point to having such protection in the first place.

On top of that – and this will really, really tick off the social justice warriors – in May 2016, the Washington Post reported that the Washington Post’s own poll showed that 90% of Native Americans said they were not offended by the Washington Redskins’ name.

Let that sink in, social justice warriors.

Anyway, I think it would be awesome – from both a legal point of view, as well as being a matter of principle – if Trump were to reverse Obama’s actions on this matter, and return the trademark protection to the Washington Redskins. The legal point of view is that it is not the government’s job to determine what is and is not offensive. The matter of principle is that we must stand up to the social justice warriors’ irrational nonsense each and every chance that we get.

Trump ends Obama’s “slush fund” policy of illegally diverting settlement money from actual victims to Obama’s favorite left wing groups that had no legal claim to the money

While working as a “community organizer,” Barack Obama filed lawsuits which forced banks to give mortgages to people with bad credit and low incomes. As a result, many of these people ended up defaulting on their mortgages. As their attorney, Obama collected $23,000 in legal fees for himself.

Then in April 2013, during Obama’s second term as President, the Washington Post reported that President Obama was still pressuring banks “to make home loans to people with weaker credit.”

However, in August 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had sued Bank of America for giving mortgages to people who could not afford to pay them back, and the bank had agreed to pay $16.6 billion in order to avoid further prosecution from the federal government.

In August 2014, it was reported that Obama had given some of the settlement money from Bank of America to left wing organizations including the National Council of La Raza, Operation Hope, and National Community Reinvestment Coalition, instead of giving the money to the actual victims to whom it was legally entitled. These groups that were illegally given the money by Obama used to be known, collectively, as ACORN. In the past, these organizations had pressured banks to give mortgages to people who could not afford to pay them back. Obama had worked with ACORN in the past. Obama had represented them in a lawsuit where they tried to get Illinois to adopt a “motor-voter” law. On top of that, Obama had taught leadership training sessions for ACORN. Also, Obama had worked as an organizer for Project Vote, an ACORN offshoot. Furthermore, Obama had been on the board of directors of the Woods Fund when it gave ACORN $75,000 in 2001, and $70,000 in 2002. Finally, during the 2008 primary campaign, Obama’s campaign had given Citizens Services Inc., an ACORN affiliate, more than $800,000 for “get out the vote” efforts.

Fortunately, President Trump has just put an end to this illegal “slush fund” payout scheme. From now on, any settlement money will go to the actual victims, instead of the left wing groups that Obama favored, but which had no legal claim to the money.

World Health Organization: United States among least polluting nations on the planet

WHO: United States Among Least Polluting Nations on the Planet

June 5, 2017

Despite recent attempts to paint the United States as a major global polluter, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. is among the cleanest nations on the planet.

In the most recent WHO report on air pollution, the United States was listed as one of the countries with the cleanest air in the world, significantly cleaner in fact than the air in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, the UK, Japan, Austria and France.

While France and other G7 countries lamented the U.S. exit from the Paris climate accord, America’s air is already cleaner than that of any other country in the G7.

Following standard practice, the WHO measures air pollution by the mean annual concentration of fine suspended particles of less than 2.5 microns in diameter. These are the particles that cause diseases of all sorts and are responsible for most deaths by air pollution.

According to the WHO, exposure to particulate matter increases the risk of acute lower respiratory infection, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart disease, stroke and lung cancer.

The report, which analyzed the “annual median concentration of particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of 2.5 μm or less (PM2.5) for both urban population and rural and urban population” found that the United States was one of the most pollution-free nations in the world.

The annual mean concentrations of particulate matter in the air range from less than 10 to over 100 µg/m3, the report states. At the very low end of the spectrum, the United States has a concentration of just 8, while China has a concentration more than seven times higher at 59, India at 66, Egypt at 101 and Saudi Arabia with the worst air pollution at 127.

“The mean annual concentration of fine suspended particles of less than 2.5 microns in diameter is a common measure of air pollution,” the WHO states.

The WHO report is corroborated by a series of other such studies on air and water pollution.

In a recent list of the 25 cleanest cities in the world, the only country to boast three cities among the cleanest on the planet was the United States of America, with Chicago coming in second place, Honolulu coming in fourth, and Portland, OR, coming in sixteenth. Unsurprisingly, no cities from China, Russia or India made the list at all.

Similarly, another list of the 15 most polluted cities in the world featured three cities from China, three cities from Saudi Arabia, and a whopping seven cities from India. No U.S. city made the list.

A third list, ranking the ten cleanest and ten most polluted cities in the world, placed two U.S. cities on the list of cleanest cities on the planet. The list of the most polluted cities in the world was led by two cities from China followed by two more cities from India. Two Russian cities also made the list. Again, no U.S. cities were found here.

With such relatively clean air throughout America, how can even reputable news agencies like Reuters continue spreading the well-worn lie that the United States is one of the “biggest polluters” in the world?

Rather than follow the time-tested practice used by the World Health Organization, which measures levels of disease-causing pollutants that get into people’s lungs, some have played a shell game, swapping a new measure of “pollution” based solely on emissions of carbon dioxide.

The problem with this ploy is that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant and it is dishonest to say it is. CO2 is colorless, odorless and completely non-toxic. Plants depend on it to live and grow, and human beings draw some into their lungs with every breath they take to no ill effect whatsoever.

Growers regularly pump CO2 into greenhouses, raising levels to three times that of the natural environment, to produce stronger, greener, healthier plants.

Current levels of carbon dioxide concentration in the environment are substantially lower than they have been during earlier periods in the planet’s history. Without human intervention, the concentration of CO2 has climbed as high as 7,000 parts per million (ppm) in prior eras, whereas at present the concentration is just over 400 ppm.

Some experts, such as UN climate scientist Dr. Indur Goklany, have defended rising CO2 levels as a good thing for humanity. Goklany has argued that the rising level of carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere “is currently net beneficial for both humanity and the biosphere generally.”

“The benefits are real, whereas the costs of warming are uncertain,” he said.

While the United States must remain vigilant to keep the level of real, dangerous pollutants to a minimum, it may take some consolation in the fact that among G7 nations, it has the cleanest air of all.

More than 50 Evergreen State College professors sign petition demanding “disciplinary investigation” against biology professor Bret Weinstein because he said the school should treat all races the same

I’ve already written about the nonsense going on at Evergreen State College here and here. And now I have some new information to tell you.

A petition which has been signed by more than 50 of the school’s professors states:

“Demonstrate accountability by pursuing a disciplinary investigation against Bret Weinstein according to guidelines in the Social Contract and Faculty Handbook. Weinstein has endangered faculty, staff, and students, making them targets of white supremacist backlash by promulgating misinformation in public emails, on national television, in news outlets, and on social media.”

Wow.

I was raised in a time when civil rights protestors were demanding (quite reasonably so) that people of all races be treated the same.

But today, apparently, such a desire to treat all races the same “endangers” people and makes them “targets of white supremacist backlash.”

Folks, if you’re considering sending your child to Evergreen State College, here’s a little advice: don’t do it. In addition to the fact that the professors will try to brainwash them into being idiots, there’s also the fact that having the school on their resume will likely act as a repellent to prospective employers.

Male high school track runner climbs all the way from last place to first place simply by claiming to be a girl

At Cromwell High School in Connecticut, a male track runner has climbed all the way from last place to first place simply by claiming to be a girl.

In this particular case, the person in question has not even taken any gender altering hormones, and has not had sexual reassignment surgery. Instead, the person merely claimed to be a girl – and presto – they moved up all the way from last place to first place.

Radical left wing feminists have no right to complain that this is “unfair,” because it is they themselves who created this situation.

As time goes on, more and more “female” sports will come to be dominated by people who were born with a penis and have XY chromosomes, but who simply claim to be female. They won’t even have to take the hormones or have the surgery. They just have to say that they are female. Quite a racket that they have started for themselves.

By comparison, men’s sports will never have to worry about this. I guess the radical left wing feminists will probably end up referring to this as “male privilege,” even though it was the radical left wing feminists themselves who created this “unfair” situation in the first place.

Wikipedia violates its own policy by censoring reliably sourced information about the idiots at Evergreen State College

Official wikipedia policy states:

Wikipedia:Neutral point of view

All encyclopedic content on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view (NPOV), which means representing fairly, proportionately, and, as far as possible, without editorial bias, all of the significant views that have been published by reliable sources on a topic.

NPOV is a fundamental principle of Wikipedia and of other Wikimedia projects. It is also one of Wikipedia’s three core content policies; the other two are “Verifiability” and “No original research”. These policies jointly determine the type and quality of material that is acceptable in Wikipedia articles, and, because they work in harmony, they should not be interpreted in isolation from one another. Editors are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with all three.

This policy is non-negotiable, and the principles upon which it is based cannot be superseded by other policies or guidelines, nor by editor consensus.

In line with that policy, a crazy person who lives in my apartment building recently added the following specific, detailed information to wikipedia’s Evergreen State College article:

On June 1, 2017, the Washington Post, referring to events that had taken place earlier that year, wrote, “This year, the school suggested that white students and faculty stay away from campus that day. Weinstein, a biology professor, wrote a letter to organizers saying that he would not stay away from campus, noting, ‘On a college campus, one’s right to speak — or to be — must never be based on skin color.'”

On this same issue, New York Times staff editor Bari Weiss wrote an opinion column which said, “Following the protest, college police, ordered by Evergreen’s president to stand down, told Mr. Weinstein they couldn’t guarantee his safety on campus. In the end, Mr. Weinstein held his biology class in a public park.” Weiss also included a link to this YouTube video, and wrote of the video, “For expressing his view, Mr. Weinstein was confronted outside his classroom last week by a group of some 50 students insisting he was a racist. The video of that exchange — ‘You’re supporting white supremacy’ is one of the more milquetoast quotes — must be seen to be believed. It will make anyone who believes in the liberalizing promise of higher education quickly lose heart. When a calm Mr. Weinstein tries to explain that his only agenda is ‘the truth,’ the students chortle.”

Everything in those two paragraphs is cited by either the Washington Post or the New York Times, which are as reliable (by wikipedia standards of reliability) as any source that one could ever hope to find.

Unfortunately, going against official wikipedia policy, someone else removed that information, and replaced it with this vague, generic, watered down version that doesn’t really convey any specific details about what actually happened at the school:

The Day of Absence is an annual event held in April at Evergreen inspired by Douglas Turner Ward’s play. Each year, minority students are encouraged to attend off campus activities focused on issues involving race. This is followed by the Day of Presence, when the campus community reunites. In 2017 the process was reversed, with white students encouraged to attend off campus activities, while the events for minority students were held on the Evergreen campus. One faculty member, Bret Weinstein, publicly objected to the change. In May 2017, student protests – focused in part on the comments by Weinstein – disrupted the campus and called for a number of changes to the college. Following the protests, a threat conveyed to police led to the temporary evacuation and closure of the campus.

Afterward, something known as an “edit war” happened, with supporters of letting people know the truth reinstating various parts of what had been removed, and opponents of letting people know the truth removing what had been added back in.

As of this writing, none of those original, specific details are in the wikipedia article.

To make matters even worse, YouTube has since removed the video that was cited by the New York Times, with the following explanation:

“This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s policy on harassment and bullying.”

Pretty much any YouTube video of social justice warriors acting like idiots could be removed under that policy, because pretty much everything that social justice warriors do is “harassment and bullying” in one form or another.

But I think the real reason that YouTube removed the video was to protect the social justice warriors from being embarrassed by their own behavior. After the video had been originally put up at YouTube, the protestors had written a letter to the school which stated:

“We demand that the video created for Day of Absence and Day of Presence that was stolen by white supremacists and edited to expose and ridicule the students and staff be taken down by the administration by this Friday.”

I count at least four factual errors in that one sentence:

1) The video was not “stolen.”

2) The video was not “edited” by “white supremacists.”

3) It is the students themselves who “expose and ridicule the students” because they chose to conduct such behavior in a public setting.

4) The video was not put up by “the administration.”

By removing the video, the only people that YouTube is protecting are the people who committed the “harassment and bullying” that YouTube claims to be against. Sunshine is the best disinfectant. The best way to fight against “harassment and bullying” is to expose and embarrass the people who are engaging in it. If YouTube was truly against “harassment and bullying,” then instead of deleting the video, YouTube would link to the video on its home page so as many people as possible would see it.

In addition to demanding that the video be taken down, the protestors also demanded that “criminal charges” be filed against the people who “stole” the video.

Furthermore, after protestors demanded permission to skip doing their homework, the school’s president, a weakling and wimp named George Bridges, gave in to their demand. How hard could it have been for him have said, “You are adults. You chose to attend this school. And with that choice comes the responsibility to do your homework.”?

Evergreen State College has an admission rate of 98%. The school could probably save itself a lot of trouble by lowering that rate all the way down to 96%. And it should get a new president as well.

After terrorists scream “This is for Allah!” and murder a bunch of people, CNN says, “We don’t know… their motives”

CNN on London jihad attacks: we don’t know “their motives”

June 3, 2017

The Muslim attackers were screaming “This is for Allah,” but CNN doesn’t know their motives. For CNN and the rest of the establishment propaganda media, “This is for Allah” means “This has nothing to do with Islam.”

“London terror attacks: What we know and don’t know,” by Hilary Whiteman, CNN, June 3, 2017:

(CNN) Details were emerging in the early hours of the United Kingdom’s Sunday morning about what we now know are two “terrorist incidents” in central London….

At 10:08 p.m. Saturday night, London Metropolitan officers responded to reports of a vehicle colliding with pedestrians on London Bridge.

Witness Mark Roberts said he said saw a van speeding across London Bridge towards London Bridge underground station, which suddenly swerved, bounced off the pavement and hit several pedestrians. He said he heard what sounded like gunfire about five to 10 minutes later.

Another witness, Brad Myers, had just left London Bridge when he heard a “boom” behind him, which he thinks was the sound of a car hitting the guardrails or other vehicles. He said he saw someone jump into the water to avoid being hit.

Multiple ambulances were sent to the scene with the first team arriving within six minutes, according to the London Ambulance Service. An advanced trauma team was also sent by car.

As emergency services rushed to respond, reports came in of multiple stabbings at Borough Market, a popular gourmet food market with restaurants that were open and busy on a Saturday night.

Witness Elsbeth Smedley told CNN that a man ran into Elliot restaurant in Borough Market, and stabbed two people before running out.
As they responded to the two incidents, police were then called to a third potential attack — reports of an “incident” in nearby Vauxhall, a residential area, which occurred just before 1 a.m. (8p ET). Police confirmed it was not related.

At 00.25 a.m., police announced the two incidents at London Bridge and Borough Market were “terrorist incidents.” People were warned to avoid the area while emergency vehicles attended to the incidents which police described as “ongoing.”

British Prime Minister Theresa May calls the London Bridge incident a “potential act of terrorism.” On Sunday, she’ll chair a meeting of the government’s Cobra emergency committee.

What we don’t know

How many attackers there were, their motives and whether they were acting together are all questions being asked.
The proximity of the attacks and the timing seem to suggest they were coordinated, but police have not confirmed that….
