Dumbest Political Ad Of The Year Is An Insult To Women (Video)

The National Abortion Rights Action League can take a bow.

Their radio ad predicting a dystopian condomless future in which Science-Denier Cory Gardner (who is running for the Senate in CO against Mark “Uterus” Udall) has outlawed contraceptives, easily earns the award for dumbest political ad of the season.  It’s dumber even than anything Wendy Davis has put out there (including the loathsome wheelchair ad) and that’s saying something.

The ad seeks to deceive low info young women with “war on womeny” hysteria – rather than educate them with the truth. It is a massive insult to their intelligence.

The ad begins with some dude “mansplaining” to his ignorant girlfriend  “a near future in which Cory Gardner has banned birth control leading, somehow, to a complete unavailability of condoms and also college tuition.”

 

As John Sexton notes at Breitbart.com, “Cory Gardner has been running since June on a platform to make birth control pills available over-the-counter, i.e. without a prescription. I’m not sure how making something available more easily is tantamount to banning it.”

But that’s only one of  of the ad’s many problems with truth, logic, style, etc. Hit the link for Sexton’s humorous take on the rest.

Women in Colorado should be offended. And Mark Udall should be embarrassed that such a ridonkulous ad was put out there supporting him.

 

Goodlatte: There’s Increasing Evidence the WH Plans To Transport Ebola Patients From W Africa To US For Treatment

On the Kelly File, Monday night, Ed Henry reported on the growing controversy regarding the use of quarantines for Americans returning from West Africa. The White House is, of course, against quarantines and travel bans for doctors and nurses returning to the states after treating Ebola patients – basically any common sense action that can protect Americans they have a knee-jerk aversion to. The Pentagon on the other hand, is mandating 21 day quarantines for returning troops even thought they haven’t been in “the hot zone” in direct contact with patients.

Suspicion is growing that the White House is planning to bring Ebola patients from West Africa to the United States for treatment without consent from Congress.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte wrote to the president, last week, asking about those plans, and is still waiting for a response. Meanwhile, as Kelly notes, we’re hearing news that the Pentagon is building portable isolation units that can transport up to 12 Ebola patients on military planes.

“And the Pentagon says these are not meant for the troops who are serving on the Ebola mission.”

“There’s increasing evidence that they’re making those plans,” Goodlatte said. He claimed they received information about the plans from people within the administration.

Got News: #Ebola Nurse Complaining About Quarantine is Left-Wing Democrat, CDC Employee WITH UPDATE

The nurse currently quarantined in New Jersey is an employee for the Centers for Disease Control and a registered Democrat with a history of left-wing advocacy, Gotnews.com has learned.

Kaci Hickox’s ties to the CDC were not disclosed in a controversial anti-quarantine column she wrote for the Dallas Morning News. The CDC opposes quarantines or travel bans from Ebola infected countries.

Initially turned down for Doctors Without Borders, Hickox applied for a position with the Centers for Disease Control’s infectious disease unit. She received that position and began a two-year fellowship in Las Vegas, NV where she currently still works.

Hickox’s travels as a nurse took her to Myanmar, Cambodia, and Nigeria and convinced her of the importance of quarantines and “health surveillance,” according to the University of Texas-Arlington newsmagazine. “I realize that we need to find better ways to improve health surveillance and outbreak response in settings with poor resources,” Hickox said. “My training in the EIS with the CDC will allow me to learn the gold standard of this kind of work.”

But Hickox, who is a registered Democrat in Nevada, is ignoring health surveillance as she pushes back against a mandatory quarantine for persons working with ebola in West Africa.

Why Does CNN host Carol Costello Still Have A Job?

She is a disgrace to CNN and if Jeff Zucker had any common sense or decency, she would have been fired, yesterday.

In case you haven’t been following this, something pretty extraordinary happened on CNN, this week.

Via The Right Scoop:

CNN host Carol Costello can barely contain her excitement over hearing the new audio of the ‘brawl’ in Alaska that involved Bristol Palin a few weeks back.

She started the segment by claiming it was possibly the best audio CNN had ever gotten:

“Okay I’m just going to come right out and say it. This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across.”

Costello then proceeded to describe the “massive brawl” and before playing the audio she told her viewers “so sit back and enjoy.”

What you are asked to “sit back and enjoy” is the sound of a tearful and near hysterical Bristol Palin describing to the police the physical assault she had just experienced.

You really have to see this to appreciate how massive the disconnect is between far leftists like Costello and normal human beings. There is nothing remotely funny about Palin’s distress in the audio.

It’s not too difficult for those of us who track and document left-wing thuggery, to see what was going on there.

Here, in Bristol Palin’s own words, is what happened.

Our friend got knocked out from a cheap shot from behind.  (His injury resulted in ten stitches, so it was really low.)

Why would anyone do this?  Well, here’s a hint.  The guy was on social media during this incident, tweeting, “about to get famous.”

When Willow saw all this happening she looked at the guy’s mom and said “get ahold of your son.”

But apparently the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree, because his mom pushed Willow.  A grown woman pushed my little sister.

By this point, I’d already gotten into the car.  But when Willow ran to me crying, telling me that some lady had pushed her down, I got out of the car to go talk to her.  Any big sister would do this.

Next to God, family is the most important thing to me.

***

But the evening that began so well took a turn for the worse when this guy decided he wanted to “get famous.”

After I got out of the car, I didn’t get far. I never even got to talk to his mom, because a guy in his late thirties or early forties got in my face.  He was towering over me – probably at 6 foot something and over 200 pounds. He puffed his chest out and started yelling.

“You c-nt!” he looked right in my eyes and said.  “Get the f-ck out of here, you slut!”

I was alarmed that things had gotten so bad so fast.  But it got even worse when this guy started pushing me.  He had his hands on me, pushing me down.  That’s when I swung and hit his face.

Some would say I should’ve never retaliated in defense against him, but certainly he should never have pushed a girl.   It didn’t phase him.  He pushed me down to the ground and kept me there.

It was scary and awful.  He held me down until someone got me out of the situation. 

That’s it – that’s the story.

What makes this story all the more remarkable is the gross double standard and mind boggling hypocrisy at play. Costello has gone on the record herself to talk about an assault she once suffered at the hands of an abusive boyfriend.

Via Noah Rothman at HotAir:

National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke noted that Sullivan has heaped far less scorn on the sitting vice president whose son was recently revealed to have engaged in illegal activities which resulted in his discharge from the Navy – activities for which “he is unlikely to face so much as an interview with the police.” How’s that for inequality?

But Cooke focuses primarily on an even stronger point, one which was first observed by The Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis: Where are the feminists rending garments over the callous way in which a physical assault on a woman by a man is being portrayed in the press?

“Anyone who is concerned about a ‘war on women’ — but not disturbed by this report — is clearly biased,” Lewis wrote.

Enter CNN anchor Carol Costello.

“I never wanted to become the poster child for anything, let alone domestic violence. But my blood is boiling, so when I say shut up, I’m venting at all those people out there who insist on blaming the victim,” Costello wrote with righteous fury directed at the National Football League (and the morning show Fox & Friends) over what she considered an insufficient level of concern for an incident involving Ray Rice striking his fiancé.

Costello goes on to reveal that she, too, was the victim of what sounds like a horrible assault by her college boyfriend. It was a brave thing for her to admit, and it made her commentary on the lax treatment Rice received from the NFL that much more powerful. But this admission also branded her take on the Palin assault as one which is inexplicably hypocritical.

Costello offered an apology without an explanation in a statement to Politico:

CNN’s Carol Costello apologized on Thursday for joking about a police recording of Bristol Palin.

“Over the past few days I have been roundly criticized for joking about a brawl involving the Palin family. In retrospect, I deserve such criticism and would like to apologize,” Costello said in a statement to POLITICO.

No ma’am. You deserve more than just criticism. You have disqualified yourself from holding a job at a still somewhat respected (debatable, I know) news organization. Folks on Twitter are demanding that she apologize on the air, which she’ll no doubt do, (if she hasn’t already) but after this disgraceful episode, there should be only one place left in the TV news business for her:

UPDATE: 

Mark Levin weighs in.

UPDATE II:

 John Nolte at Breitbart contacted CNN to see if she plans to do an on air apology. The answer was no. The half-hearted statement to Politico was it.

“Straight White Guy Festival” Jest Upsets Diversity Police

1279_1405763864

“Come help us celebrate our enjoyment of being straight, white, and male,” the flier said. “Beer available.”

When some fake fliers advertising an upcoming “Straight White Guy festival” appeared in an Ohio town, last summer,  some humor-impaired individuals didn’t appreciate the humor or even get that it was a joke.

“This kind of thing implies there’s some kind of struggle going on for being a straight white person in Ohio,” one area resident sniffed.  “Straight white people are doing just fine.”

Hurrumph!

The leader of an organization pushing same-sex marriage whined that “the flyer is not productive.”  Thankfully, the situation provided an opportunity for a “teaching moment.”

Listen up, you knuckle draggers.

Via 10-tv.com:

“I think it detracts from the real problems of Ohio that need to be solved, that are being denied their constitutional rights because of who they are, or who the love. And that’s what we really need to work on and this is just kind of a distraction,” he added.

I’d say that whoever did this bad thing has been properly chastised. Shame on them and their white/straight/male privilege.

If the diversity police ever finds out who did the dastardly deed, they’ll publish his name and address on left-wing message boards so he and his family can be properly harassed. Then, they’ll call his employer and try to get him fired. Nice, tolerant citizens that they are.

A couple of thought criminals were interviewed for the story:

“I think it’s funny. If they want to do this, great, freedom of expression,” said Cheralyn Elkins.

“It doesn’t offend me personally,” added Collin Brubaker. “But I can think of people it would offend.”

I hope those two survived the wrath of the perpetually outraged.

The Federalist: Gay Marriage: No One Expects the Secular Inquisition:

Personally, I have no problem with gay people getting hitched, having weddings, and saying that they are “married.” I don’t have any religious objection, on account of not being religious, nor do I think gay marriages, given their very small numbers, will have any particular impact on the state of marriage as an important social institution. (Which, alas, has all sorts of problems of its own.)

But the test of liberty isn’t what happens to people who agree with the intent of a particular edict. The test is what happens to people who disagree.

That brings us to the reason why gay rights advocates insisted on the government granting same-sex unions the title of “marriage.” The theory behind this was that homosexuals suffer from a lack of social acceptance, and gay marriage would put the government’s imprimatur on their status as social equals—along with the promise that this equality is to be backed by government force.

The theory behind gay marriage, in short, was the theory behind the entire secular left: society and the state are the all-powerful forces on which the life of the individual depends, and the most important political task—indeed, the most important task in life—is getting this irresistible power on your side. Once you gain social and political power, you hold on to it by making your preferred views mandatory, a catechism everyone must affirm, while suppressing all heretical views. In this case, to gain social acceptance of homosexuality, you make the affirmation of gay marriages mandatory while officially suppressing any dissenting religious views.

Hence, the Secular Inquisition, which we should have expected all along.

Open Letter To Racial Agitators In Ferguson and St. Louis

xprotest-street-stl.jpg.pagespeed.ic.66TrZI4uin

Enough, already.

The vast majority of American people who are able to look at facts and make logical assessments  are not with you. I know this may come as a surprise because so much of the media coverage of your antics has been sympathetic.

Please don’t confuse the liberal media with ordinary Americans.

There is a silent majority out here  who find your behavior to be abhorrent, obnoxious, criminal, irrational and inexcusable. Torching cars,  looting businesses, property destruction, and wild rioting is heavily frowned upon by most Americans.

Believe me when I tell you that your efforts to subvert the justice system by threatening violence unless officer Darren Wilson is indicted, is also heavily frowned upon. Guess what? That is not how justice is meted out in a first world country. With the Holder Justice Department pushing hard for an indictment, the evidence exonerating Wilson will have to be overwhelming for the grand jury to decide otherwise. Yet you promise to riot, anyway, while Wilson remains in hiding – in fear for his life.

Yahoo News reported on your latest cause celebre – another teenager shot and killed after shooting at an off duty police officer:  “Activists took to the streets of St. Louis overnight, marching and chanting, seeking answers.”

Here’s your answer:

If a teenager shoots at a police officer, he will return fire – and he’ll probably be a better shot than the teenager. Ipso facto: don’t shoot at police officers. Also helpful: Don’t strong arm rob liqueur stores and then attack a police officer when he stops you, later. Also helpful: respect the law.

These are basic facts of life in a civil society that are not a mystery to most of us.

Take a look at the 16,463 comments under that Yahoo News story. Those people represent most Americans (black and white) and they are not on your side. They don’t sympathize with you nor do they like what you’re doing.

Yes, there are race-baiting Democrats who have rushed to your side to pretend you have some kind of “point.” You don’t. They’re using you. It’s an election year,  and they just want to make sure you are motivated in November to punish *their* enemies at the ballot box.

One more thing:

To you members of the Religious Left who actually practice some form of Christianity but are too blinded by your lack of discernment skills to see a problem with demanding that “justice” to be done – or else:

You people are the biggest, most gullible dupes on this earth. The Communist party which is helping to organize these protests, despise your religion – they mock it and they denigrate it. They want to destroy it. They are exploiting you for their own purposes.

*Republicans want what’s best for everyone. Democrats aim to divide us along class/gender/racial lines.

 

 

 

 

 

Undercover O’Keefe Video Reveals Alison Lundergan Grimes’ Support For Coal To Be A “A Lying Game”

Kentucky U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes has made her opposition to the president’s coal and environmental policies central to her campaign – but she was caught deceiving the public on the issue earlier this summer when she was invited to a high dollar private fundraiser with anti-coal zealot Harry Reid. After promising Kentucky voters she would use the event as a forum to promote Kentucky’s coal industry, it was reported that she did nothing of the sort and headlines blared, “Alison Lundergan Grimes mum on coal at private fundraiser.”

In a new undercover video by  Project Veritas Action’s founder James O’Keefe, multiple Grimes campaign offices were investigated to determine if her opposition to the core principles of her own political party is genuine or an intentional deception. What O’Keefe’s investigator found in one campaign office after another – was that they all assumed Grimes was lying about her support for the coal industry because in Kentucky – you can’t get elected otherwise.

As one Democrat operative bluntly put it, “She has to say that because in Kentucky if you don’t support the coal industry, you’re dead, politically. Politics is a game – You do what you’ve got to do to get to point B…it’s a lying game unfortunately.”

“Once again Alison Lundergan Grimes has been caught being dishonest about coal,” said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. “The scathing video is simply the latest reminder to Kentuckians that Grimes cannot be trusted to fight for coal, and in fact would work against the coal industry and Kentucky in the Senate.”

Senate Dems Block Cruz Bill to Stop Americans Who Join ISIS from Returning to US

Sen. Ted Cruz tried to get the Senate to consider a common sense measure Thursday morning that would strip Americans who join ISIS of their citizenship.

In the wake of the recent spate of ISIS beheadings, UK Prime Minister David Cameron did just that.

Via The Daily Mail:

He announced that police will be given the power to seize the passports of terror suspects trying to join jihadists fighting in Iraq and Syria.

He also revealed the Government was considering new powers to force jihadis living in the UK to relocate, while airlines will be compelled to hand over passenger lists before flights take off.

New laws will also be considered to prevent terrorists returning to ‘wreak havoc’ on the streets of Britain by removing their citizenship if they are fighting for ISIS abroad

You would think this would be a no brainer – especially in an election year –  but you would be wrong.

A Democratic senator from Hawaii objected to his bill, the Expatriate Terrorists Act of 2014, arguing that the Senate needs more time to weigh the significant constitutional issues it raises. Democrats are very concerned about trampling on the rights of the returning jihadis.

Via The Washington Times, Senator Hirono, D-Hawaii, blocked the bill.

 Sen. Mazie Hirono, Hawaii Democrat, objected, saying the bill has not been brought before the Senate Judiciary Committee and it affects “fundamental constitutional rights, which should be given the full deliberation of the Senate.”

“Legislation that grants the government the ability to strip citizenship from Americans is a serious matter, raising significant constitutional issues,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Senate will be weighing Obama’s risky proposal to arm and train Syrian jihadis, Thursday afternoon.
Sen. Cruz spoke on the Senate floor this morning about his bill, discussed the rising threat of ISIS, and expressed his concerns with  Obama’s plans to arm the Free Syrian Army.

“All too often the Obama Administration proposals threaten to become embroiled in the midst of these political crises as, for example, they have made training and equipping the Free Syrian Army a cornerstone of their plan to fight ISIS.  But just this week the leader of the Free Syrian Army reportedly announced that he would not participate in the fight against ISIS unless we pledged to join in his fight against the Syrian dictator Bashir al Assad.”

“While this is certainly understandable from his perspective, resolving the Syrian civil war is not our mission nor the job of the military, and we should not be making the Free Syrian Army —whose focus is Assad—central to the American plan of defending our nation against the jihadist threat of ISIS.

“The administration’s ISIS policy is also marked by internal confusion that further demonstrates a lack of focus on what should be our clear mission.  The President has repeatedly insisted that there will be no American ‘boots on the ground’ in Iraq and Syria as he wants any action to be led by others—even while he increases US personnel in a country by a few hundred here and a few hundred there, and earlier this week his top general, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, admitted that there were circumstances under which he would change his advice to the President to recommending ground troops, a suggestion that was subsequently echoed by Chief of Staff of the Army and even Vice President Biden.

“The American people need and deserve greater clarity on what exactly our military mission is, and how what the President envisions relates to the advice his Department of Defense is giving him.

“The disconnect between what we know and what we do not know about the Americans fighting for ISIS in Iraq and Syria is equally concerning.  Estimates range from ‘about a dozen’ according to one Pentagon spokesman, to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel’s reassertion of about a hundred Americans fighting with ISIS in this week’s Armed Services Committee hearing.

“Either way, Secretary Hagel agreed with my characterization of the risks posed that Americans will take  U.S. passports, after fighting with ISIS, after training with ISIS, to come back And commit unspeakable acts of terror here at home. Secretary Hagel agreed that risk was significant.

“It seems only prudent to address this threat, and I am therefore going to be asking for unanimous consent for the Expatriate Terrorist Act or ETA of 2014, which will make fighting for ISIS, taking up arms against the United States, an affirmative renunciation of American citizenship—and I should note here that the ETA is very similar to the bipartisan legislation proposed by Senators Joe Lieberman and Scott Brown in 2010 to address Americans who were joining al Qaida overseas, notably the radical cleric Anwar al Awlaki, or here at home, like Faisal Shahzad, who attempted to blow up a car bomb in Times Square.

“The ETA thus has applicability beyond the immediate threat of ISIS, it is an important adjustment to our existing laws governing the renunciation of citizenship to reflect the threat posed by non-nation terrorist groups.  As then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said concerning the Lieberman-Brown legislation, ‘United States citizenship is a privilege.  It is not a right. People who are serving foreign powers — or in this case, foreign terrorists — are clearly in violation…of that oath which they swore when they became citizens.’

“The Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 is only a very modest change to current law, it’s one small step in a larger and necessary effort to re-focus our ISIS strategy that I urge President Obama to consider immediately.”
