Your Money Is Going to Planned Parenthood Whether You Like It or Not

dailysignal.com ^ | June 1, 2016 | Casey Mattox 

Whether you’re a painter, pastor, lawyer, or laborer (pro-life or pro-abortion), you work for Planned Parenthood. A portion of every paycheck goes to the world’s leading abortion business through the federal and state taxes allocated by your elected representatives and the unelected bureaucrats they empower.
For the fiscal year ending in June 2015 (just before the Center for Medical Progress videos were released), over $550 million of your hard-earned tax dollars went to Planned Parenthood.
But the states are taking the lead to end this forced partnership with “Big Abortion” and redirecting those funds to providers that better serve women and families.
Since the authenticated Center for Medical Progress videos were released showing Planned Parenthood officials bartering over the prices of baby body parts, 15 states have taken action to end or limit its taxpayer subsidies.

Will Americans surrender to the depraved?

The Coach's Team ^ | 6/5/16 | John C. Velisek USN (Ret.) 

Is the American culture on the verge of collapse? Some say yes. What forces are likely to be responsible for such a calamity? Could it be the government and its willful contempt for the widely shared conceptions of right and wrong which once held this nation together? Might it be an external force that has become too powerful thanks to the growing supply of active American traitors in positions of authority? And either way, will enough dedicated Americans remain to pick up the pieces?
Our colleges are teaching mindless chair-warmers that capitalism is bad and socialism is good. Schoolchildren throughout the country are being taught the pillars of Islam, are forced to accept the “truth” of the shahada and even being told to wear a hijab so as to not offend Muslim students.
The homosexual community, about .6% of the population, has worked with federal lawmakers, bureaucrats and judges to force Christians and others to accept as normal the deviant and perverse. Of course, Obama’s decree that transgenders may use the bathroom of their choice will not affect his own very privileged children.
We are being forced by political elites to do what the most generous of their campaign donors believe to be appropriate.
Judeo-Christian ethics and respect for one another have always existed as the hallmarks of decency in this nation. But when a population is taught that benchmarks of morality accepted for centuries have become irrelevant, even false, that nation will begin to fail. Moral relativism was responsible for the downfall of civilizations in the past and it is poised to bring about the...

Hillary’s Goon Squad


townhall.com ^ | 6/5/2016 | Derek Hunter 

If there’s one thing at which progressives always have excelled it is intimidation.
For all the talk against “bullying,” the political left has engaged in coercion since its inception. Under every left-wing despot from Stalin and Hitler to Mao and Chavez, those who dared differ with state-approved orthodoxy were threatened, beaten or simply killed. American progressives aren’t quite to the “murder” stage just yet, but given the escalating hatred they’re stirring up, that mile marker can’t be far over the horizon.
Think what you will of Donald Trump and the things he’s said … he’s only said things. Yet whenever he gathers with supporters to say things, an organized and well-funded progressive mob gathers outside to intimidate and attack people who simply want to hear the man speak. Their shirts may be all colors of the rainbow, but their actions are decidedly brown.

Do-Nothing San Jose Police Hammered for Allowing Thug Riot

Breitbart News ^ | 6-4-2016 | Breitbart News 

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — This Silicon Valley city and its police department are facing mounting complaints of a tepid and tardy law enforcement response to attacks of Donald Trump supporters after a political rally.
Videos circulating online show physical clashes occurring in front of San Jose police officers dressed in riot gear and standing stoically in a line outside the convention center where Trump spoke. Critics also complained that assaults occurred on side streets near the venue that lacked police presence.
“Potentially more could have been done,” said San Jose Councilman Pierluigi Oliverio, chairman of the council’s public safety committee.
The questions about the San Jose police response came while Trump launched a rally Friday afternoon in Redding, California, a politically conservative city 350 miles north of San Jose. Trump called those who attacked his supporters Thursday night a “bunch of thugs.”
San Jose police chief Eddie Garcia commended his officers’ response to the violence after the Thursday night rally, saying the 250 officers on hand showed “discipline and restraint.”

Why is it OK to praise a "Wise Latina" judge but not criticize a biased Mexican one?

 by SoFloFreeper

Another thing up for discussion, if anyone is interested.
I heard more screeching criticism of Trump for saying the pro-illegal immigrant Hispanic judge on his civil case is being unfair. According to the crying in the media, Trump is wrong for pointing out the judge may have a bias.
But a few years ago, all the media could do regarding the SCOTUS nominee, named by Valerie's man child, S Sotomayor, was point out she was a LATINA who was "wise".
I would question that--the Republicans rolled over in fear at her nomination--but isn't it a little two faced to say a Latina is "wise", but not suggest a Hispanic could be a poor judge?

Oops! Bill Clinton Says He ACCIDENTALLY Took $500,000 From Algeria During Key Arms

Downtrend.com ^ | 3/05/16 | Robert Gehl 

"Oops! Bill Clinton Says He ACCIDENTALLY Took $500,000 From Algeria During Key Arms Negotiation With State Department" Oops!
Bill Clinton is claiming his foundation “accidentally” accepted money from foreign governments who were negotiating with his wife while she was Secretary of State – a definite no-no.
The Clinton Foundation received $500,000 from Algeria in 2010 while the country was lobbying the State Department for an increase in weapons export authorization.
The International Business Times says that “some of those export authorizations were for weapons classified as “toxicological agents, including chemical agents [and] biological agents.”  “[Critics] said, ‘Oh you got $500,000 from Algeria at very same time they were lobbying the State Department,’” Clinton said. “Those two facts are accurate but if you put them back-to-back they are incredibly misleading. Here’s why: I never considered that the Algerians gave me the money.”

‘Red State’ Editors Support Democrat Mob Attacks on American Trump Supporters: ‘Deserve to be Beaten!

Breitbart ^ | June 4, 2016 | KATIE MCHUGH 

Embittered “#NeverTrump” consultants and bloggers are ragging on American voters who support presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, telling them they “deserve to be beaten,” as Americans are chased down and assaulted for merely attending a U.S. political rally.
Neil Stevens, a contributing editor to the “Red State” blog, believes that Americans should be attacked by Mexicans for supporting a candidate who promises to enforce U.S. immigration laws.
Stevens complained Trump supporters “deserve to be beaten” by Democrat hordes and illegal aliens burning the American flag, and that Trump is a “Nazi.”

Leftist Lies on the Decision to Bomb Hiroshima

Townhall.com ^ | June 3, 2016 | Steve Feinstein 

Historical arguments based on fantasy and a desire to present America as a villain have made the use of nuclear weapons to end World War II into a “controversy.” Ignorance of history is a very dangerous thing.
The President recently visited Hiroshima Japan, site of the first atomic bomb ever used in combat. The bombing took place on August 6th, 1945. It was followed three days later by a second bomb on Nagasaki. Although he was very careful not to explicitly “apologize” for our use of atomic weapons -- mindful of the harsh backlash that awaited him should his trip be perceived as yet another “Obama apology tour” -- the tenor of President Obama’s remarks left little doubt as to where he stands on the issue.
For years, the estimated death tolls from these two events were put at approximately 70,000 and 45,000 respectively.* However, in recent years these figures have increased dramatically, often being cited as being in excess of 120,000 and 90,000. Perhaps recent historians, equipped with more data, are including the lingering radiation and burn-related deaths that can now be attributed to the initial attacks. Perhaps agenda-driven revisionists -- confident that the earlier numbers will never again come to light -- are simply intentionally exaggerating the casualty numbers for greater emotional impact, in service to an anti-nuclear or anti-American political goal.

Women in the Combat Arms: The Greatest Disaster in US Military History

US Defense Watch ^ | June 4, 2016 | Ray Starmann 

Operation You Go Girl is destined to fail; failure defined not as a NO GO, or an F, but as the nation’s young women flown home in flag draped Glad Bags when the nation loses the next war(s). When this happens, the Hollywood producers, the feminists and the cultural Marxists who were responsible for forcing the nation’s women to experience the horrors of ground combat will scratch their heads and wonder why reality is so much different from their imaginary ideas of women in combat.
Think about this: US defense policy is now being run on a fantasy propagated by Hollywood, feminists and cultural Marxists.
Hollywood created the fantasy of the rough and tough, hard charging female cop. On any given night, on any given network, you can watch an anorexic 95 pound model, turned NYPD detective brandish a pistol larger than her waist and proceed to karate chop and cuff and stuff a myriad of male heavyweight thugs with the imaginary aplomb of Chuck Norris on all night POW camp raid.
Goodbye Popeye Doyle…
Unfortunately, real war is much different than a Demi Moore movie. A battlefield is not gender neutral. On a battlefield the roughest, toughest sons of bitches win the fight. What remains of the losers are picked at by ravens or fade away like dust in the wind.
Unfortunately, the Pentagon, the White House and Congress are no longer living in reality.
Simply put, the authorization in December 2015 to allow women to serve in the combat arms (infantry, armor, cavalry, artillery) and special operations forces (SEALs, Green Berets, Rangers, Delta Force, Marine Raiders) of the US armed forces is the greatest disaster in US military history.
The defenders of this insanity will say that women have been in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan so what’s the big deal? Returning fire when your convoy is attacked or defending yourself during a military police security operation is different than being in a unit with the sole mission of killing the enemy and seizing and holding ground. It’s like comparing peddling a beach cruiser to racing in the Tour de France.
The social engineers will cry that the standards will remain the same. Horse dung and hay: the standards were already warped so that the three females could graduate from Ranger School. They had months of special training, nutritionists, endless chances to repeat the course, etc. Ninety-nine percent of the women in the world simply cannot meet the male physical standards of the combat arms and special operations units. No amount of estrogen charged You Go Girl battle cries, or Universal Studios light and magic shows can stop reality. Reality says a million times over that women simply don’t have the physical strength, aerobic lung capacity or aggressiveness to withstand life in the combat arms and special operations. They are also more prone to stress fractures and other injuries.
Has anyone in the Pentagon wondered why they’re authorizing women for ground combat duty, yet the PGA won’t allow women to play with Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson in any tournament. Why, because women don’t have the physical strength to hit a golf ball as far as men, that’s why.
So, the Masters is out for women, but the Green Berets are in. Are you kidding me?
Either there will be double standards or the standards will be made gender neutral and so weak that the fat ladies driving around Walmart in two horsepower electric carts will become Navy SEALs.
Another factor dooming Operation You Girl is the emotional issues surrounding young men and women living together in garrison and more importantly, in the field.
The military says that good leadership will put a damper on human sex drive. Newsflash social engineers, no amount of ROTC Leadership 101 is going to stop an 18 year old with an erection in a movement to contact with a 36-24-36 cheerleader, Private Babs Horny. Get a grip; the Army and the Marines are about to become nothing more than a high school summer camp with guns and high explosives.
You have to wonder if the social engineers who are throwing a wrecking ball into the US military have any knowledge at all about combat, the military and war itself. People like Obama, Joe Biden, Ash Carter, Ray Mabus, Eric Fanning and the rest of the military’s executioners should study battles like The Wilderness, Verdun, Tarawa, Peleliu, Okinawa, Iwo Jima, Normandy, the Bulge, Khe Sanh and Tet. Think modern war can be won by diversity and technology; just ask the Marines who fought at Fallujah, or the soldiers from the Big Red One in Desert Storm who got into hand to hand fighting with the Republican Guard during the Battle of Norfolk, on the night of 26 February 1991.
War is about one thing; killing the enemy before he can kill you. It has nothing to do with equal opportunity, diversity, LGBT rights, transgender expression and ludicrous fantasies emanating from Professor Birkenstock’s women’s studies class.
Call me a cynic, but I think the subject is such a third rail in American politics that even a PC bashing behemoth like Trump won’t touch the issue. If elected, Trump would rebuild the military, but I don’t believe he has the knowledge nor will he have any generals with the stones to tell him to amend this debacle. If Trump utilizes the same school of Pentagon jellyfish trolling the hallways of the E-Ring, it’s game, set and match bad guys.
And, of course if Madame Secretary is elected it really is End Times, not only for the military, but for the nation itself.
Nope, it will take a colossal military disaster for this fiasco to end once and for all. Colossal military disaster defined as Putin’s Boys leaving the wreckage of the New US Army on the Ukrainian steppes; M1 tanks, red high heels and breast milk coolers. Or, the Chinese leaving a trail of tampons, mascara, lipstick and dead coed Marines throughout the tiny atolls of the South China Sea.
The true victims of this impending disaster are America’s young women in uniform. Well over ninety percent of women in the US military want nothing to do with ground combat, the combat arms and special operations. They are happy serving their country in the hundreds and hundreds of different jobs open to them. They know more than anyone what they are physically capable of doing in the military. It is a small minority of self-serving women in the military and leftist civilians who are pushing this nightmare agenda down the throat of the military.
The US military is on a collision course to defeat, disaster and perhaps complete destruction in war. The forced integration of women in the combat arms is not a civil rights victory, but rather the single greatest disaster in US military history.

Hillary Clinton's National Security Speech Was a Grim Preview of How This Election Will Be

Vice ^ | June 3, 2016 | Harry Cheadle, senior editor 

Earlier this week, Hillary Clinton's campaign promised that she would deliver a major national security speech in San Diego on Thursday. She did, and it turns out her major foreign policy message is that she is not Donald Trump.
Of course, Clinton is not yet officially the Democratic nominee for president—there are still several primaries being held next Tuesday, the biggest of which will go down in California. But in her address to supporters there Thursday morning, she was clearly anticipating the general election fight, presenting the contest as a stark choice—not between isolationism and interventionism, or other competing schools of international relations thought, but between her own hard-earned competence and Trump's rank amateurism....

Shock Report on Jobs Signals Obama Economy Is on Brink of Recession

The New York Sun ^ | June 3, 2016 | Lawrence Kudlow 

The May jobs report is a shocker, with nonfarm payrolls up only 38,000 and private jobs up a mere 25,000. Investors and economists are making the case that this was a weird, one-off, statistical glitch and that stronger employment is on the way. They might well be wrong.
If you smooth out the numbers with a three-month moving average, job increases have been slowing for five months. The three-month pace in December was 281,000 jobs. In the May report, the pace nosedived to 107,000. The unemployment rate fell to 4.7%, largely because 458,000 people left the labor force.
This spells trouble for the economy. And if you step back and look at the whole business sector, a case can be made that the United States has been in a mild business recession for as much as a year, if not longer.
Take business fixed investment in equipment, software, plants, buildings, and so forth. This has been slowing for six straight quarters. It even went negative in the first quarter on a year-on-year basis.
Behind this business-investment slowdown, the broadest measure of profits from the GDP accounts, which closely tracks IRS profits, has been negative for the past three quarters measured year-on-year. This slump began in the second half of 2014, almost two years ago.
Profits are the mother’s milk of stocks and the lifeblood of the economy. While so many people obsess about the Federal Reserve, the reality is that stocks have been flat over the past year as profits and business investment have been weakening.
Meantime, core capital goods, including orders, shipments, and backlogs, have turned negative over the past three months and across the past year. This is a proxy for business investment, and it’s not a good omen....

DHS Quietly Releasing Vanloads of Illegal Aliens Into the United States


http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2016/06/dhs-quietly-moving-releasing-vanloads-illegal-aliens-away-border/ ^ | JUNE 3, 2016 

While the nation focuses on the 2016 Republican and Democrat presidential campaigns, the Obama administration has been continuing its lawless policies on the Mexican border. Judicial Watch reports that the Department of Homeland Security has been "quietly transporting" illegal aliens from the border to Phoenix and letting them go without processing or issuing court appearance documents. JW's Border Patrol sources say that this week alone, the government transferred 35 "Other Than Mexican" (OTM) immigrants 116 miles north from Tucson to a Phoenix bus station. From there, they were allowed to go their separate ways.
Judicial Watch was on the ground when one of the white vans carrying a group of OTMs arrived at a Phoenix Greyhound station.
The OTMs are from Honduras, Colombia, El Salvador and Guatemala and Border Patrol officials say this week’s batch was in custody for a couple of days and ordered to call family members in the U.S. so they could purchase a bus ticket for their upcoming trip from Phoenix. Authorities didn’t bother checking the identity of the U.S. relatives or if they’re in the country legally, according to a Border Patrol official directly involved in the matter. American taxpayers pick up the fare for those who claim to have a “credible fear,” Border Patrol sources told JW. None of the OTMs were issued official court appearance documents, but were told to “promise” they’d show up for a hearing when notified, said federal agents with firsthand knowledge of the operation.
A security company contracted by the U.S. government is driving the OTMs from the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector where they were in custody to Phoenix, sources said. The firm is called G4S and claims to be the world’s leading security solutions group with operations in more than 100 countries and 610,000 employees. G4S has more than 50,000 employees in the U.S. and its domestic headquarters is in Jupiter, Florida. Judicial Watch is filing a number of public records requests to get more information involving the arrangement between G4S and the government, specifically the transport of illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to other parts of the country. The photo accompanying this story shows the uniformed G4S guard that transported the OTMs this week from Tucson to Phoenix.
Outraged Border Patrol agents and supervisors on the front lines say illegal immigrants are being released in droves because there’s no room to keep them in detention. “They’re telling us to put them on a bus and let them go,” said one law enforcement official in Arizona. “Just move those bodies across the country.” Officially, DHS denies this is occurring and in fact earlier this year U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske blasted Border Patrol union officials for denouncing this dangerous catch-and-release policy. Kerlikowske’s scolding came in response to the congressional testimony of Bandon Judd, chief of the National Border Patrol Council, the labor union that represents line agents. Judd told lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee that illegal immigrants without serious criminal convictions can be released immediately and disappear into the shadows. Kerlikowske shot back, telling a separate congressional committee: “I would not stand by if the Border Patrol was — releasing people without going through all of the formalities.”
Yet that is what the Obama administration has been doing right under the noses of the Republican-run Congress.
Judd, the Border Patrol Union chief, told senators during a judiciary hearing last month that about 80% of apprehended illegal immigrants are released into the United States. And that isn't even the worst of it.
In what Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz called "the most infuriating thing" he's seen in this government yet, Immigration and Customs enforcement has in a three-year period released more than 86,000 criminal illegal aliens into unsuspecting American communities.
"These are people who were here illegally, got caught committing a crime, were convicted of that crime, and then instead of deporting them, they were just released back out into the United States of America," Chaffetz said during an Oversight hearing on April 28 titled Criminal Aliens Released by the Department of Homeland Security.
Altogether, the criminals aliens had been convicted of more than 231,000 crimes, Chaffetz said. "In 2015, 196 of these people had been convicted of homicide and ICE released them back into the public rather than deporting them." He continued, "124 of those who were convicted between fiscal year 2010 and 2015, went on to commit homicide."
