Saturday Movie Matinee: “The whole family is stupid and they duped us”

Gavin McInnis, Rebel Media#IStandWithAhmed: “The whole family is stupid and they duped us”:

“Al-Taqiyya” is the art of using lies and deception to promote Islam. Here in the West, we are so petrified of offending Muslims, all they have to do is sort of pretend that someone may have slighted them and we all drop to our knees and start apologizing.

“This kid was not making a clock and innocently taking it to school. He was committing a crime by deliberately taking a device to school that looked like a bomb. The entire world fell for it including the president of the United States. All they did was pull the guts out of an old alarm clock and throw it in a pencil box. It’s the farthest thing from a homemade clock (and not that far from a bomb).

“The more we cower in fear, the more powerful Islam gets. Islamophobia isn’t a scourge on Western culture. It’s a fake tool used by our enemies to overpower us. We need to stop being afraid of it and accept that being suspicious is part of war.”

The President, the Pope, and the U.N.


In 2006 John O’Sullivan wrote a book, The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister that detailed how the timely convergence of President Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the early eighties led the West to a peaceful resolution of the Cold War.

All three individuals were self-confident charismatic leaders who achieved greatness through dedication and hard work. Each believed that he had been created for a purpose. For Reagan it was to hasten and bring about the collapse of Communism. For John Paul II (at least in the political realm) it was his diplomatic offensive for religious liberty behind the Iron Curtain, especially in Poland. Thatcher was determined to transform “the sick old man of Europe” (a familiar epithet for Britain) into a dynamic land of enterprise and prosperity.

Working together, these three leaders defeated the Soviet Empire, and revived the economies and spirits of the West.

Now we have another convergence of world leaders, but they are the worst possible leaders at the worst possible time: a Marxist Alinskyite President, and a sanctimonious pope.

Via Watts Up With That:

The Middle East is imploding. Islamic State butchers are annihilating Christian and other communities. Putin is sending arms to Assad. Under the Obama-Iran nuclear deal, the mullahs will get $100+ billion to expand their proxy terror war on Israel and the West. Saudi Arabia has 100,000 empty air-conditioned tents but won’t take any of the millions who’ve been driven from their homes. Neither will most of the other 22 Arab League nations or 57 Organization of Islamic Cooperation member countries.

Instead, millions of mostly Muslim migrants, militants and refugees are heading to Europe – with limited money, education, job skills, or desire to assimilate. They demand entry into EU countries whose energy, economic, employment and welfare systems are already foundering or nearing collapse.

There is no shortage of dire issues for Barack Obama and Pope Francis to be focusing on. But as economies crumble, and the Middle East collapses, these two focus like a laser beam on what?


…climate change! It’s insanity on steroids. The alarmist assertions are absurd.

“Climate change is already disrupting our agriculture and ecosystems, our water and food supplies,” Obama recently inveighed. “If we do nothing, Alaskan temperatures are projected to rise between six and twelve degrees by the end of the century.”

Projected by whom? Who concocts these fables? Nature-driven climate change has disrupted lives throughout human history. Seas have risen 400 feet since the last mile-thick glaciers melted off the northern half of Asia, Europe and North America. How did “imperiled” Pacific islands survive that?

Some Alaskan glaciers have been retreating for decades, but Hubbard is growing andGlacier Bay’s ice retreat began around 1750. Arctic sea ice has increased some 26% (400,000 square miles) since 2012, in a cycle that’s continued for millennia. The sea ice “was thick in the 1920s, thin in the 1930s and 1940s, thick again in the 1960s and 1970s, and thinner in recent decades,” oceanographer Igor Polyakov noted in 2004.

“Not only in the summer, but in the winter the [Bering Sea region] was free of ice, sometimes with a wide strip of water up to at least 200 miles away from the shore,” Swedish explorer Oscar Nordkvist reported in 1822. “We were astonished by the total absence of ice in the Barrow Strait,” Francis McClintock, captain of the Fox, wrote in 1860.“I was here at this time in 1854 – still frozen up – and doubts were entertained as to the possibility of escape.” How did cars and power plants cause all that?

Meanwhile Greenland’s ice mass has grown by some 200 cubic kilometers (48 cubic miles) just since 2014. Vikings built homes, grew crops and raised cattle in Greenland between 950 and 1300, before they were frozen out by the Little Ice Age and encroaching pack ice and glaciers. Antarctic sea ice set another record in May, the US National Snow and Ice Data Center reports, climbing 12% above the long-term 1981-2010 average, to reach 12.1 million square kilometers (800,000 square miles) – almost as much as Alaska and Texas combined!

If it’s global warming and climate change, shouldn’t melting phenomena be constant andglobal?

Pope Francis nevertheless plans to meet with President Obama September 23, to discuss “dangerous manmade climate change” and how to ensure “preferential treatment of the poor,” by building “clean” energy economies and stopping “carbon pollution.” Their concerns and solutions are illusory.

They disdain fossil fuels and capitalism – though they have brought greater health and well-being to more people than any other systems in history. They prefer the socialism, centralized government control, higher energy prices, fundamental economic transformations and wealth redistribution schemes advanced by the UN and Climate Crisis, Inc. By denying the world’s poorest people energy, jobs and economic growth, this agenda will sentence them to perpetual poverty, disease and early death. By mandating the use of biofuels, wind turbines and solar panels, it will turn food into fuel, increase malnutrition, convert wildlife habitats into enormous inefficient energy facilities, and kill countless millions of birds and bats.

The pope and president dismiss these impacts. They insist that climate change is a far worse problem, and that modern energy, housing and living standards for the world’s poor would not be “sustainable.” They believe “morality,” “climate justice” and “preferential treatment” mean protecting people from hypothesized, exaggerated and fabricated climate disasters 25, 50 or 100 years from now – by destroying millions of jobs and keeping the world’s poor energy-deprived and impoverished now and in perpetuity.

The “Freedom Team” of  Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and Margaret Thatcher brought down the Evil Empire. That was a major accomplishment, and a great blessing for the entire world.

To deal with today’s threats, we have the sad Farce Team of Obama, Pope Francis and (in the absence of a strong, principled British Leader) the UN, which drives so much of the climate change agenda..

Even if they got lucky beyond their wildest dreams and managed to completely eliminate U.S. carbon emissions, it would not be scientifically detectable in global temperatures even by 2100.

Doesn’t exactly compare to tearing down the Berlin Wall, does it?

All it would do is make us poorer and less free – which makes them the polar opposite of the Freedom Team.

Benghazi Movie “13 Hours” To Be Released In January

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on January 15, 2016.

Via Newsbusters:

Judging from the movie trailer, this film directed by Michael Bay is exactly what Hillary doesn’t want the public to be reminded about. For one thing, it is pretty clear that the assault on the diplomatic compound on September 11, 2012 was not inspired by a mere video according to the trailer.  Also included in the trailer is a scene where the security team is told to stand down after the attack. Coming as it does at a crucial point in the election season, it is sure to inspire quite a bit of buzz. In fact it is already generating a lot of controversy judging from the many comments posted in the IMDB message board even though it is still almost four months away from being released.

If you haven’t seen the preview yet, it looks pretty good (though I think Hillary would beg to differ):

That Michael Bay really has a knack for making spontaneous demonstrations over a Youtube video look pretty intense, doesn’t he?

Saturday Movie Matinee: Carly vs Trump On Foreign Policy

Hugh Hewitt: Donald Trump and Hugh Hewitt Discuss Foreign Policy:

HH: Are you familiar with General Soleimani?

DT: Yes, but go ahead, give me a little, go ahead, tell me.

HH: He runs the Quds Forces.

DT: Yes, okay, right.

HH: Do you expect his behavior…

DT: The Kurds, by the way, have been horribly mistreated by …

HH: No, not the Kurds, the Quds Forces, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Quds Forces.

DT: Yes, yes.

HH: …is the bad guys.

DT: Right.

HH: Do you expect his behavior to change as a result…

DT: Oh, I thought you said Kurds, Kurds.

HH: No, Quds.

DT: Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you said Kurds, because I think the Kurds have been poorly treated by us, Hugh. Go ahead.

Hugh Hewitt: Carly Fiorina and Hugh Hewitt Discuss Foreign Policy:

HH: Now, again, you have no idea what I asked Donald. There’s been social media on it, so let me just begin where I began with him.

CF: Just for the record, Hugh, I never know what you’re going to ask me.

HH: (laughs) That’s true. I just don’t do that with people. But aren’t you familiar with General Soleimani?

CF: Yes. . .

HH: What do you know about him?

CF: Well, why don’t you tell me why you’re asking because I could go a lot of different directions here, but what’s the issue you’re trying to get at?

HH: Whether he and the Quds force’s behavior would be impacted by the Iranian deal.

CF: Okay. . . Of course (laughs). There’s no doubt. There’s no doubt. Look, we know that the general of the Quds force has been a powerful tool of the Iranian regime to sow conflict. We also know that the Quds forces are responsible for the deaths and woundings of American soldiers. We also that the Quds forces have been in Syria and a whole bunch of other countries in the Middle East. The Iranian deal – which sadly, has just been approved by Congress – starts a massive flow of money, and that money is going to be used not only to build up an Iranian nuclear weapon – which they have been hell-bent on getting for thirty years – that money is also going to go to the Quds forces, going to go Hezbollah. It’s going to go to all of Iran’s proxies which is why I’ve said to you on other occasions, Hugh, that we have to stop the money flow. And even if Congress had succeeded in stopping this deal – which we now know they have not – the reality is that China and Russia and European money are already flowing to Quds forces among proxies. And that’s why I’ve said I’d cut off the money flow by letting the Supreme Leader know that, hey, there’s a new deal, and we’re going to make it as hard as possible for you to move money around the global financial system so that we cut off the money flow from the Iranian regime to whomever, including the Quds force.

HH: Now there are a lot of dangerous terrorist leaders in the world. There’s Hassan Nasrallah, there’s Al-Zawahiri. There’s al-Julani. There’s Abu-bakar al-Baghdadi. There’s al-Asiri. There’s al-Masri. Do you most of these without a scorecard, Carly Fiorina?

CF: Well, I have to be very honest with you and say that sometimes I can get confused a bit between the name and group because they sound a bit alike sometimes, so I have to pause and think sometimes. But, I certainly know all those names both of the individual leaders and of the terrorist groups. I certainly understand where these terrorists are in play. I certainly understand that one of the most dangerous things that is going on right now is competition among these leaders and among their terrorist groups. So on the one hand, we see organizations like Boko-Haram pledging allegiance to ISIS – in other words – joining forces and conducting horrific acts on behalf of ISIS. But on the other hand, we see competition among these groups, so Al-Qaeda and ISIS are competing now. Al-Nusra is competing. That’s also dangerous because the way these terrorist groups compete is by one-upping each other in the horrific nature of the violence that they conduct.

Obama Finally Surpasses Al Gore in Climate Alarmism


The fact is that climate is changing faster than our efforts to address it. That, ladies and gentleman, must change. We are not acting fast enough.”

“Unless the world acts more aggressively and more quickly, “entire nations will find themselves under severe, severe problems: More drought. More floods. Rising sea levels. Greater migration. More refugees. More scarcity. More conflict.”

“If we do nothing, Alaskan temperatures are projected to rise between six and twelve degrees by the end of the century ”


ice melt

After several days of propagating some of the most hysterical global warming warnings ever made, Obama was roundly rebuffed, as several Superpowers Refused To Sign Arctic Climate Agreement.

The US-led GLACIER environmental conference in Anchorage ended with a joint declaration calling for more international action to tackle climate change. But Russia (the world’s leading oil and gas producer), China (the world largest producer of goods), and India with its huge emerging economy opted not to sign the document, however nonbinding it might appear. For China and India reducing emissions entails huge expenditure and loss of economic effectiveness, and for Russia the upcoming environmental deal brings additional costs to the oil and gas extraction industries. Moscow is boosting Russia’s presence in the Arctic, including militarily, for at least two reasons: future hydrocarbons extraction and the Northern Sea Route, a much shorter way from Asia to Europe, which could soon be operable year-around because of less ice in the Arctic Ocean.

But President O-ManBearPig has managed to finally replace Al Gore as the nation’s most hysterical and ridiculous alarmist.

Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees!


It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are this weeks’ nominees….

Racist, Heterophobe Murderer Vester Lee Flanagan

 The Glittering Eye : On August 26, 2015 Vester Lee Flanagan II shot Allison Parker, a Roanoke, Virginia newscaster and Adam Ward, her cameraman, to death while the two were conducting a live interview. In a particularly vile touch, Flanagan, a sometimes model, actor, prostitute, and newscaster, ensured that the camera was focused on Ms. Parker before opening fire, so that his crime was broadcast on live television. The manifesto left by Flanagan confirmed that he was motivated by a malignant soup of racism, heterophobia, and professional jealousy, Flanagan having been fired from his victims’ television station two years previously.

Evil, sadly, is not rare in the world, however catching evil on live television is blessedly rare. Flanagan’s actions can only be described as pure evil.

Vester Lee Flanagan II is indisputably the weasel of the week.

Bonus weasels: shortly after the announcement of the murders Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton separately and opportunistically leapt upon the tragedy to promote the cause of gun control. Neither they nor anyone else has ever promoted or introduced as legislation any bill that would have prevented the murders of Parker and Ward.

The Uber-Progressive Fascists Running The University of Tennessee!

 The Noisy Room :My nominee for Weasel of the Week is the University of Tennessee, who has told its staff and students to stop calling each other ‘he’, ‘she’, ‘him’ and ‘her’ and to start referring to one another with terms liek ‘xe’, ‘zir’ and ‘xyr’ instead. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Bar none. If my child was at this university, they’d be outta there, pronto. This isn’t diversity… it’s insanity. They are writing a new language under the guise of inclusiveness. Not only are the University of Tennessee officials dictating speech and trying to control it, they are forcing gender revisionism on their students. It’s unconstitutional in the extreme. Not to mention just batty. The Vice Chancellor for Diversity made the proclamation. The very title sounds fascist to me.

Donna Braquet, who runs the university’s Pride Center and whose gender I am not entirely certain of, wrote the guidelines, which are accompanied with a long table demonstrating how to replace the regular parts of speech. Next on the agenda, all purpose bathrooms and book burning. What serious university even considers such nonsense? The university is now backing away from this somewhat, saying it is not mandatory. Too late. Tennessee used to be a conservative state. I have no idea what has happened there – they have been infiltrated and taken over by radicals and Marxists. This is such a stupid move it freezes your brain. And it definitely turns you off the University of Tennessee. What a weasely university.

Raciali$t Organizer and Cop Hater Carol (Sunshine) Sullivan!

Puma By Design : My nominee for Weasel of the Week goes to Carol (Sunshine) Sullivan, an organizer of F***YoFlag, #FYF911 and #BlackLivesMatter movements.

Less than 24 hours before Bryce Williams aka Vesper Lee Flanagan II shot and killed two WBDJ journalists, Alison Parker and Adam Ward on the air Black activist Carol (Sunshine) Sullivan, an organizer of F***YoFlag on her radio blog show hosted from Texas called, “Sunshine’s F***ing Opinion Radio Show” allegedly gave members of #FYF911 or #FukYoFlag and #BlackLivesMatter a platform from which the hate/terrorist organizations called for the lynching of white people and law enforcement officers.

Two days after Parker and Ward were killed, Shannon J. Miles, a Black male pumped fifteen bullets into Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth at a gas station in Houston, Texas.

The killings are reminiscent of the shootings of two NYPD officers one week after Al Sharpton and Marxists paraded through the streets of New York City chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now.”

ALL were executions and all occurred after Marxists made the call.

Vesper Lee Flanagan stole two young innocent lives because they were Caucasians and because he felt entitled to that which he did not earn.

Black activists terrorists espousing hate and calling for the blood of “whitey” was more than enough for Flanagan’s diseased troubled mind to rationalize that killing Parker and Ward was only one way to remedy the situation.

While Sullivan and fellow activists terrorist leaders did not pull the triggers themselves, they have planted seeds of hate and violence influencing weak minds the result of which is bloodshed on the streets of America and the death of the innocent.

My biggest fear is that these terrorists are just getting warmed up.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels…ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.
