Taxpayer-Funded Global Warming Musical Bombs, Closes After Only 3 Weeks…

Update to this story.

Via Free Beacon (HT: Local Malcontent)

After a series of lackluster reviews, the traveling global warming musical that was financed by the U.S. taxpayers is ending its run early.

The Great Immensity, a musical described as “painfully long” and “awkward,” was made possible by a $697,177 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

“The play, which featured songs and video exploring Americans’ relationships to the environment, opened in New York in April with a three-week run before going on a national tour that was supposed to attract 75,000 patrons,” FoxNews.com reported. “But it stalled after a single production in Kansas City, falling short of the lofty goals outlined in a grant proposal.”

The musical was intended to tour the country in an effort to convince Americans to act on climate change. It ended up attracting meager audiences of theatergoers who were likely already on board with the play’s politics, the Washington Free Beacon found after seeing the play on its opening night in New York City.

College Student Told To Remove American Flag From Apartment Balcony Because It Could “Offend Foreign People”…

Screen shot 2014-09-22 at 11.23.30 AM

If someone is “offended” by our flag then they are they here?

SAN DIEGO – A local college student contacted Team 10 after he said his apartment complex managers told him he needed to take down his American flag.

Brad Smith moved into the new Boulevard 63 Apartments last month. The property is not owned or operated by San Diego State University.

A couple days ago, he received a notice to remove the American flag hanging from his balcony.

Smith asked the apartment community managers why.

“We were then told that it was for political reasons and that the flag could offend foreign people that live here, foreign exchange students,” Smith said.

That did not sit well with the SDSU sophomore.

“I’ve had friends and family fight to defend that flag,” Smith said.

Libs Trying To “Shut Down” NY Stock Exchange To Protest Global Warming…

Failure to ensue.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) – Hundreds of environmentalists plan to “shut down” the New York Stock Exchange later Monday to protest the relationship between global warming and Big Business.

Scores of protesters had already gathered in lower Manhattan early Monday for an event dubbed #FloodWallStreet. They planned to march a few blocks north to Wall Street and stage a “sit-in” until forced to leave.

Their beef: the fossil fuels industry and other companies are profiting at the expense of the environment. The activists said they were willing to be arrested to drive home the link between global capitalism and worsening climate change.

“The climate crisis is fundamentally an issue of the economy,” one activist told CNN. “Flood Wall Street is an attempt to bring the problem to the doorstep of the people who are fundamentally responsible for the crisis we find ourselves in now.”

Organizers, who have not obtained permits, expect participants to be “arrested in droves.” Blue-clad protesters plan to unfurl a 300-foot banner and will inflate a 15-foot “carbon bubble,” according to a statement on the #FloodWallStreet website.

American Muslim Leader To Obama: Stop Telling Us ISIS Has Nothing To Do With Islam…

If only more Muslims in America felt the same way.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser: Please, if anybody in this administration is listening, stop telling us Muslims what is Islamic. I mean, so he’s saying this is compounding the sin? How about when he shakes and hugs the king of Saudi Arabia for their being custodians of the Holy Mosque and yet they have imprisoned apostates, liberals Muslims. They’re a mysogynistic nation that treats their women as third class citizens. Or the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, or the Islamic Republican of Iran. Hundreds of millions of Muslims running governments all over the world that line their prisons and torture Christians and Jews and Muslims, that’s Islamic? And ISIS came out of thin air? ISIS is a by-product of those ideologies. And to deny it and dismiss it, they’re trying to bury us reformers from having a seat at the table.

Arizona High School Football Coach Suspended For Two Games For Praying With Team…

Groan…

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) – A Tempe school football coach must miss his team’s game Friday as part of a punishment for praying with his players.

Tom Brittain is serving the second week of a two-game suspension from his job as coach at Tempe Preparatory Academy.

Headmaster David Baum says Brittain instructed a player to lead the team in prayer after they won a game.

Baum says staff cannot appear to condone religion to students on behalf of the state-funded charter school’s behalf.

Some students hung a sign in support of Brittain at the school’s homecoming game last week.

Lois Lerner Breaks Silence: “I’m Not Sorry For Anything I Did”…

Proud hack.

Via Politico:

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS.

Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”

Lerner, who sat down with POLITICO in an exclusive two-hour session, has been painted in one dimension: as a powerful bureaucrat scheming with the Obama administration to cripple right-leaning nonprofits. Interviews with about 20 of her colleagues, friends and critics and a survey of emails and other IRS documents, however, reveal a much more complicated figure than the caricature she’s become in the public eye.

The portrait that emerges shows Lerner is, indeed, fierce, unapologetic and perhaps even tone-deaf when she says things that show her Democratic leanings. She had a quick temper and may have intimidated co-workers who could have helped her out of this mess. It’s easy to see how Republicans have seized on the image of a devilish figure cracking down on conservative nonprofits. [...]

“Regardless of whatever else happens, I know I did the best I could under the circumstances and am not sorry for anything I did,” the 63-year-old said.

Environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lamented that there were no current laws on the books to punish global warming skeptics. . “I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under,” Kennedy told Climate Depot in a one-on-one interview during the People’s Climate March. The interiew was conducted for the upcoming documentary Climate Hustle.

Kennedy Jr. accused skeptical politicians of “selling out the public trust.” “Those guys are doing the Koch Brothers bidding and are against all the evidence of the rational mind, saying global warming does not exit. They are contemptible human beings. I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under.”

Kennedy saved his most venomous comments for the Koch Brothers, accusing them of “treason” for “polluting our atmosphere.”

“I think it’s treason. Do I think the Koch Brothers are treasonous, yes I do,” Kennedy explained.

“They are enjoying making themselves billionaires by impoverishing the rest of us. Do I think they should be in jail, I think they should be enjoying three hots and a cot at the Hague with all the other war criminals,” Kennedy declared.

To the extent that Kerry, the uncircumcised old geezer, suddenly became an Islamic jurist, issuing a verdict to the people that the Islamic State was distorting Islam, that what it was doing was against Islamic teachings, and that the Islamic State was an enemy of Islam. And to the extent that Obama, the mule of the jews, suddenly became a sheikh, mufti (Islamic scholar that issues verdicts), and an Islamic preacher, warning the people and preaching in defense of Islam, claiming that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. This occurred during six different addresses he made in the span of a single month, all of them about the threat of the Islamic State.

Newly Uncovered Correspondence From Hillary Clinton To Saul Alinsky

Ohh, the early training of Hillary! Alinsky’s secretary writes to Hillary, “Since I know his feelings for you”…

Via WFB:

NOTE: READ THE HILLARY CLINTON-SAUL ALINSKY LETTERS HERE.

Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development.

Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.

Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training center for community organizers founded by Alinsky, which are housed at the University of Texas at Austin.

The letters also suggest that Alinsky, who died in 1972, had a deeper influence on Clinton’s early political views than previously known.

ISIS Recruiting Women To ‘Stay Barefoot, Pregnant And In The Kitchen’

Pregnant muslim

The real war on women.

Via Stars and Stripes

Months after declaring an Islamic caliphate, Islamic State, which has seized large swaths of Syria and Iraq, is seeking to address a need of any viable nation: women.

In Internet posts and social media messaging, the extremist Sunni militants are recruiting women to marry their fighters and have children, part of a larger strategy of state-building.

“They are treating the Islamic State as a country that needs women,” said Rita Katz, director of the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors online activity by militant organizations. “The message is: ‘You are coming to marry someone immediately and have kids and cook.’ They’re building a state.”[...]

Reports of women answering the call to support the Islamic State are on the rise. “Six, seven months ago you had maybe one or two, but suddenly you have so many popping up,” Katz said.

This month, a 19-year-old Colorado woman pleaded guilty in a Denver federal court to providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization after the FBI arrested her in April as she attempted to travel to Syria. At least one Minnesota woman is believed by authorities to have traveled to Syria in recent weeks — telling her parents she had gone to help treat the wounded — and the FBI is looking into additional reports.

Over the Labor Day weekend, a teenage girl planning to go to Syria was arrested at an airport in southern France, and the man who allegedly recruited her was arrested shortly afterward. Days later, the family of a 20-year-old Scottish woman revealed that she had traveled to Syria in November 2013, where she is believed to have been posting online under the pseudonym Umm Layth and encouraging other young women to make the same journey.

One Islamic State fighter recently wrote on his Tumblr page that “on average, around 10-20 sisters, sometimes more, arrive here in Islamic State [territory] everyday.”

Kerry: People Are Killing Each Other Because of Global Warming…

John Kerry

But it probably has nothing to do with global warming.

Via TWS:

Secretary of State John Kerry spoke at U.S. Aid’s 2014 Frontiers in Development Forum Friday and gave a stark warning about “500-year” drought conditions around the world that he says are a result of climate change. He went so far as to say that “[t]here are people killing each other over water in certain parts of the world,” and part of the solution lies in a “low-carbon economy”:

“Climate change means the heatwaves we’re already seeing, the extraordinary level of fires because of drought that is beyond the hundred-year mark. It’s the 500-year mark. Water shortages also way beyond hundred-year marks. All of this means conflicts over resources and serious implications for feeding the world’s growing population. Development is the only possible way, and it’s only possible if we grow more sustainably, if we reduce greenhouse gas emissions, if we transition to a low-carbon economy.

One of the privileges of traveling as I do or Mary Robinson does or Raj does is we see this. We see it now happening. There are people killing each other over water in certain parts of the world. There are people who are refugees because of the lack of food and the changes and the absence of adequate agricultural policies in parts of the world. So this is a critical moment. This is not conjecture. This is not pie in the sky. This is not some time down the road; it’s now, and we are compelled to respond.”

Pint-Sized Democrat Blames Detroit’s Bankruptcy On White People…

Robert-Reich-POTUS

Via Bill Clinton’s Labor Secretary Robert Reich:

Detroit is the largest city ever to seek bankruptcy protection, so its bankruptcy is seen as a potential model for other American cities now teetering on the edge.

But Detroit is really a model for how wealthier and whiter Americans escape the costs of public goods they would otherwise share with poorer and darker Americans.

Judge Steven Rhodes of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan is now weighing Detroit’s plan to shed $7 billion of its debts and restore some $1.5 billion of city services by requiring various groups of creditors to make sacrifices.

Among those being asked to sacrifice are Detroit’s former city employees, now dependent on pensions and health care benefits that the city agreed years before to pay. Also taking a cut: investors who bought $1.4 billion worth of bonds the city issued in 2005.

Both groups said the cuts unfairly burden them. Under the plan, the 2005 investors emerge with little or nothing, and Detroit’s retirees have their pensions cut 4.5%, lose some health benefits, and do without cost-of-living adjustments.

No one knows whether Rhodes will accept or reject the plan. But one thing is for certain: A very large and prosperous group close by won’t sacrifice a cent — the mostly white citizens of neighboring Oakland County.

Oakland County is the fourth wealthiest county in the United States among counties with a million or more residents.

Citing Joan Rivers, Texas’ Perry Backs Abortion Clinic Law

texas-protest

Moonbats look for a squirrel to counter Governor Perry.

Via KDFW

Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Sunday invoked comedian Joan Rivers’ death at a surgical clinic while defending a law he signed that would close the majority of abortion facilities in the nation’s second-most populous state.

The potential 2016 presidential candidate said the law made Texas safer, even though a federal judge in August blocked a key provision that requires abortion clinics to meet hospital-level operating standards. Had that requirement taken effect, only seven abortion facilities would remain in Texas — down from more than 40 in 2012.

Rivers was undergoing a routine procedure at a New York outpatient surgery center when the 81-year-old entertainer went into cardiac arrest and died earlier this month. Health officials in New York are investigating.

“It was interesting that Joan Rivers and the procedure that she had done, where she died, that was a clinic,” Perry said. “It’s a curious thought, that if they had that type of regulations in place whether or not that individual would be still alive.”

Abortion-rights supporters bristled at Perry’s comparison.

“The reality is that complications happen in all areas of medicine. There’s risk inherent in just about anything. You could have a heart attack and die while having your wisdom teeth removed. Should we outlaw wisdom teeth removal?” said Heather Busby, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Texas in an email.

Perry was responding to a question from the audience during a wide-ranging interview at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin.[...]

Jan Soifer, an Austin attorney representing abortion providers in the lawsuit, said in an email Sunday she didn’t know the circumstances of Rivers’ death, or if Perry knew whether that clinic would have met Texas’ proposed ambulatory surgical center requirements.

“I do know that the evidence we produced at trial proved that abortions are among the safest procedures and neither ASCs nor admitting privileges make them any safer,” Soifer said.
