Seattle Socialist Party Calling For $20/Hour Minimum Wage Says They Can’t Afford To Pay That Rate…

seattle

After being called on their hypocrisy (see Nick’s post here), THIS is how they respond.

Via Daily Caller:

The socialist party in Seattle that wants to raise the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour but advertised a job last week for an experienced web developer paying just $13 per hour is now defending itself.

The Huffington Post, which was sued by a bunch of unpaid bloggers after founder Arianna Huffington sold the website for $315 million, has the story.

The argument from the Freedom Socialist Party is that it cannot afford the minimum wage it seeks to impose on every commercial entity in America.

Doug Barnes, the Freedom Socialist Party’s national secretary, claimed that the collectivist political organization shouldn’t be subject to its own wage demands because it is a nonprofit that receives revenue from leftist contributors.

“We’re practicing what we’re preaching in terms of continuing to fight for the minimum wage,” Barnes told the HuffPo. “But we can’t pay a lot more than $13.”

NIH Chief: Obama’s Ebola Czar Doesn’t Need Any Medical Experience…

Obama didn’t have any relevant experience needed to be an effective president, and look how that turned out.

Via CNS News:

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the man President Barack Obama picked to be the Ebola response coordinator is a good organizer, and it doesn’t matter that he’s not a health care professional.

“There are health officials – there’s myself. There’s the CDC. There are others. You don’t need to be a health care person. You need to be somebody who is a good organizer, and his experience is extraordinary. He has been chief of staff to a couple of vice presidents, he has a lot of experience,” Fauci said about Ron Klain, dubbed by some as the Ebola czar. [...]

“You don’t see this as something that should have a healthcare professional in charge?” Schieffer asked.

“Not necessarily. There are health officials — there’s myself, there’s the CDC, there are others, you don’t need to be a healthcare person, you need to be somebody who is a good organizer,” Fauci responded.

GWU Law Professor Petitions FCC To Shut Down Virginia Radio Station For Saying “Redskins” On Air…

Another self-righteous moonbat.

Via The Blaze:

A radio station is in the middle of a fight at the Federal Communications Commission over its right to broadcast, as a college professor has petitioned the FCC to shut it down because it uses the word “Redskins.”

WWXX in Buckland, Virginia, is owned by Dan Snyder, who also owns the Washington Redskins. The name of his football team has been under attack all year from Democrats who say the word “Redskins” is racist and is a slur against American Indians. [...]

In the meantime, opponents of the team name like George Washington University law professor John Banzhaf are continuing to find ways to put pressure on the team. Banzhaf is the professor who filed a petition at the FCC asking it not to renew the broadcasting license of WWXX.

According to Inside Radio, petitioners say the use of the word “Redskins” on the air is “profanity” and “hate speech.”

White House (Again) Says A Travel Ban On Ebola Countries Could “Endanger People More”…

If the source of the virus was a white-majority country the White House wouldn’t think twice about instituting a travel ban.

Via Breitbart:

Monday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” in discussing the administrations response to Ebola in America, President Barack Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said, “a travel ban could endanger people more.”

Rhodes said, “The judgment of the professionals is if you have a travel ban in place, it drives people underground and instead of traveling through protocols that allows us to screen, they seek to evade detection and the fact is what we are focus on is screening. If people are trying to travel from west Africa into the United States, how can we screen them to make sure they are not posing a risk. We believe a travel ban could actually endanger people more by driving them underground and having them seek ways to find ways into the United States that are outside the protocols.”

Racist Poll Worker Not Sure If The Barack Obama Casting Early Vote In Chicago Today Is The Real Barack Obama…

The army of Secret Service agents and reporters didn’t give it away?

Via WaPo:

President Obama — along with members of both parties — has been pushing the idea of early voting for the midterm elections. Monday morning he took his own advice, casting his ballot at a community center here.

“I’m so glad I can early vote,” the president said as a he approached a poll worker at the Martin Luther King, Jr., Community Service Center on Chicago’s South Side. The poll worker asked if he is, in fact, Barack Obama. “That’s me,” Obama responded.

And he put in a plug for an activity that appears to be near and dear to his heart. “I love voting,” Obama said.

We are completely out of ideas.

After President Clinton emailed you this morning to ask for help, we really thought we would be in a better place.

But we aren’t. The Koch Brothers, Karl Rove, and the other Republican outside groups are spending millions against us. It’s the biggest spending spree of any midterm election EVER. So big — it doesn’t even look like President Clinton’s email can dig us out of this hole.

There is still time, though. Things are rough, but we’re not ready to accept defeat. If we can bring in 5O,OOO donations before tomorrow’s ad buy deadline, we can get back on track. Will you answer President Clinton’s call-to-action today?

Kurdish television has joined the fight against the Islamic State with a parody video which labels them as ‘brainless’ and says they milk goat ‘even if it is male’.

Lib Rag Guardian Claims West’s Response To Ebola Has Been Racist, “Ebola Now A Stand-In For ‘Blackness'”…

Screen shot 2014-10-20 at 12.46.10 PM

C’mon people, Ebola is only a virus that liquifies your organs and causes you to bleed internally and externally, stop being so racist!

Via Guardian:

Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person to die of Ebola in the United States, was not the right kind of victim for the west: he wasn’t a pretty young woman smiling in sunglasses as a Cavalier King Charles spaniel named Bentley licks her cheek; he didn’t have a young, benevolent doctor’s face that looks “appropriate” plastered on newspapers; he wasn’t a kindly older nurse who told reporters how God had spared her. He wasn’t the kind of person to whom primetime news specials would dedicate 20 minutes and glorify with quotes from loved ones about his kind spirit or ceaseless determination to overcome an unfair affliction.

Thomas Eric Duncan was black, he was poor, and he was African.

A Dallas hospital turned away the uninsured Liberian immigrant after an initial exam concluded he suffered only from a “low-grade viral disease”, and the media turned him into the unsympathetic, undeserving face of a contagion with which the west is frantically grappling.

He – and the West Africans to whom he is tied by both birth and cause of death – have become nothing more than disease vectors responsible for infecting innocent western health workers, tarnishing pristine nations by importing the blemish of an African scourge. And yet, American citizenship alone does not sanitize the blight of blackness; Amber Joy Vinson, the second healthcare worker diagnosed with the virus, is already being met with scrutiny as Nina Pham’s quarantined dog receives an outpouring of support.

Ebola now functions in popular discourse as a not-so-subtle, almost completely rhetorical stand-in for any combination of “African-ness”, “blackness”, “foreign-ness” and “infestation” – a nebulous but powerful threat, poised to ruin the perceived purity of western borders and bodies. Dead African bodies are the nameless placeholders for (unwarranted, racist) “panic”, a conversation topic too heavy for the dinner table yet light enough for supermarket aisles.

Obama Again Claims You Can’t Get Ebola On A Bus… One Day After CDC Quarantined A Bus Over Ebola Fears…

Amateur hour continues.

Via CNS News:

One day after a bus that had departed from the Pentagon was quarantined on Capitol Hill in an Ebola false alarm, President Obama issued a video message to Americans telling them that “you cannot get it [Ebola] from just riding on a plane or a bus.”

“Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch. It’s not transmitted through the air like the flu,” said Obama. “You cannot get it from just riding on a plane or a bus,” Obama said in his weekly video message released by the White House on Saturday.

But on Friday, a bus was quarantined on Virginia Avenue, SE, in the Capitol Hill area of Washington, D.C.

The bus was carrying a group of Marines and family members from the Pentagon to a ceremony that was going to take place at the Marine Barracks on Capitol Hill. While it was in the Pentagon parking lot, according to news reports, a woman boarded it and went into the restroom. Shen then exited the bus, vomited and collapsed. According to a Defense Department spokesman, “the individual indicated that she had recently visited Africa.”

The bus departed for the Marine Barracks, but the woman was brought to Inova Fairfax Hospital as a suspected Ebola victim. Meanwhile, the South Parking lot of the Pentagon was closed down, and when the bus approached the Marine Barracks on Capitol Hill it was quarantined.

Salon Calls Bill Maher’s Condemnation Of Pakistan’s Death Sentence Against Christian Woman For Blasphemy A “Hateful Attack On Islam”…

It’s almost like the left is overly-sympathetic to Islam.

Via Salon:

Bill Maher once again made his feelings about radical Islam clear on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Earlier in October “Real Time” was the scene of a much-discussed heated debate with Maher and Sam Harris versus Ben Affleck about radical Islam. Maher also came under fire for calling Islam a religion akin to the “mafia.”

On Friday Maher discussed the case of Asia Bibi, a woman in Pakistan who was found guilty for blasphemy — she allegedly made derogatory comments about the Prophet Muhammad in an argument with another woman — and will face the death penalty.

“So yeah, Sam Harris and I were way off on that,” Maher commented sarcastically.

Obama To Dems: You Need To Get “Cousin Pookie” Off The Couch And “Tell Him To Vote”…

As in the crack-smoking Pookie from “New Jack City” (played by Obamabot Chris Rock)?

Via RCP:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Starting tomorrow, you can vote too. You’ve got to grab your friends. You’ve got to grab your co-workers. You know, don’t just get the folks you know are going to vote. You’ve got to find Cousin Pookie, he’s sitting on the couch right now watching football, hasn’t voted in the last 5 elections, you’ve got to grab him and tell him to go vote.

Video here…

It has been a while since we’ve heard Obama talk about “Cousin Pookie” and his aversion to voting. Still missing: “Ray Ray” and “Uncle Jethro.”

January 2008:

“I need you to grab Cousin Pookie to vote; I need you to grab Ray Ray to vote,” the Illinois senator declared at a mostly black rally in Kingstree, S.C., two days before the South Carolina primary.

Last March, in a sermon at Brown Chapel in Selma, Ala., on the 42nd anniversary of the historic voting rights marches there, Obama also invoked Pookie’s name.

If Cousin Pookie would vote, if Uncle Jethro would get off the couch and stop watching SportsCenter and go register some folks and go to the polls, we might have a different kind of politics,” he said. There were affirmations of recognition.

U.N. In Detroit To Attack City For Shutting Water Off For Residents Refusing To Pay Their Bill…

Janet Napolitano: “Outrageous” For Congress To Ask CDC Chief To Issue Travel Ban On Ebola Countries…

110906_napolitano_fema_ap_328

Never mind the fact that multiple polls have found a huge majority of American want a travel ban.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Janet Napolitano on Saturday lambasted Congress for politicizing concerns about the Ebola virus, and drew parallels to the response to 2009’s H1N1 flu pandemic, which she oversaw as Homeland Security Secretary.

Napolitano criticized a recent Congressional hearing on Ebola featuring Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “In the middle of a crisis, pulling Dr. Frieden away from the work he needs to do so Congress members could all make their little press statements — it was shameful,” Napolitano, now president of the University of California, said to The WorldPost at a Pacific Council on International Policy conference.

“It was outrageous to drag the head of the CDC so that they can make very partisan comments and tell him to do something that makes no sense,” said Napolitano, referring to congressional calls to ban travel from Ebola-affected countries.

Taliban’s 3-Year-Old Toddler: “I’m Going To Shoot People”…

What an adorable little scamp.

Via Daily Mail:

Around three years old and holding a gun, this little boy is terrifying proof of how the Taliban is reasserting its grip on Afghanistan.

As Western troops prepare to leave the country after 13 years of war, sinister footage has emerged from one of the fanatics’ strongholds.

In the film, obtained by the BBC, the toddler declares: ‘I’m going to shoot people.’

Other clips show fighters with their faces covered, posing with guns and rocket launchers.

The Taliban has been using the Tangi Valley – just an hour’s drive from the capital Kabul – as a staging post for attacks as it tries to seize back the whole country.
