Government Funded Theater Company Puts on Porn Play After Global Warming Play Fails…

Via WFB

The curtain closed on Pretty Filthy, a musical about the “human side of the porn industry,” on Sunday night, the latest play from a theater company that has received nearly $1 million from U.S. taxpayers.

The Civilians, an “investigative theater” group based in New York, has put on several plays financed by the federal government, including a global warming musical, and a play about a socialist Paris commune in the 19th century.

Pretty Filthy, the newest production from writer director Steve Cosson and composer Michael Friedman, was the “untold showbiz musical, based on interviews with adult entertainers.”

“Armed with their notepads and recorders, The Civilians crossed the mountain range that divides Hollywood from the ‘other Hollywood’—the San Fernando Valley, world capital of porn,” the play’s website states. “The artists conducted interviews and visited sets to get an insider’s glimpse into a world that is far more than the sum of its (very) visible parts.”[…]

While no taxpayer funds went toward the porn play, the Civilians has received numerous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), totaling $944,177.

Cosson recently was awarded $15,000 from the NEA for a new play entitled, “The End and The Beginning,” which will be based on interviews about death and dying, and last year the Civilians received $20,000 for their “cabaret and podcast series.”

That series, “Let Me Ascertain You,” has featured podcasts on the LGBTQ community, celebrating “stories as diverse as a teenage lesbian shunned by her Jehovah’s Witness community, a master domination top who locks people up in his basement, a gay military soldier who attempted suicide, and the life of homeless gay youth on the streets of New York City.”

The latest podcast was entitled, “F*cking and Dying, Part IV.”

The company received a $12,000 NEA grant from January 2013 till June 2014 to support new plays from the Civilian’s Research and Development Group.

DOJ Finds #HandsUpDon’tShoot Completely Accurate…Except For The “Hands Up” And The “Don’t Shoot” Parts

As we had reported earlier, the ‘hands up’ part was probably a lie. Now the DOJ confirms that no witness ever testified that Mike Brown said “don’t shoot”, so that was another lie. Yet media and #Ferguson crazies repeated it over and over again, with absolutely no factual basis.

Here’s the full report of the DOJ on the shooting.

House Dem Eleanor Holmes-Norton Not Afraid To Tackle The Tough Issues, Like Sledding On Capitol Hill…

Capitol-Sledding

Its for the children of DC that can’t afford a ski trip to Aspen.

Via The Hill

With 4 to 8 inches of snow expected to blanket downtown D.C. on Thursday, Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) is renewing her push to let the public sled on Capitol Hill.

Holmes Norton sent a letter to U.S. Capitol Police Board Chair Frank Larkin on Wednesday asking for the ban on sledding on U.S. Capitol grounds to be temporarily lifted for the weekend beginning on Thursday.

“The District of Columbia is expected to receive seven to eight inches of snow tomorrow, the largest snowfall this winter,” she said in the letter. “Families have started calling my office because they do not want to be turned away once again from sledding on U.S. Capitol Grounds.”

Holmes Norton, who asked the Capitol Police Board to nix the regulation altogether last month, said the Capitol grounds have one of the best hills for sledding in the District.

The ban on sledding on the slope in front of the Capitol has existed since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

President Barack Obama met with a group of journalists and columnists on Wednesday afternoon in an off-the-record session at the White House.

According to a source who saw the group leaving the Roosevelt Room, where the meeting was held, those present included John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times, Juan Williams of The Hill and Fox News, and Washington Post columnists Eugene Robinson and Jonathan Capehart.

A White House spokesperson declined to comment on who else was at the meeting or what was discussed, as did Harwood. When asked about the meeting via email, Capehart responded with a smiley-face emoticon. Robinson did not respond to a request for comment.

In an appearnace on Fox News on Wednesday evening, Williams confirmed that he was at the meeting and that no comment was made about Hillary Clinton’s practice of using a private email account while she was Secretary of State.

“I was at the White House today with the president at an off-the-record meeting he was having with a bunch of columnists and there was radio silence on this topic,” Williams said.

While the White House press corps continue their fight for greater access to Obama, select groups of journalists and columnist are frequently invited to private meetings with the president, usually ahead of big speeches.

Clinton’s E-Mail System Built For Privacy Not Security, Along With The Ability To Erase Messages Completely …

Clintons are experts at disposing of evidence and bodies.

Via Bloomberg

A week before becoming Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton set up a private e-mail system that gave her a high level of control over communications, including the ability to erase messages completely, according to security experts who have examined Internet records.

“You erase it and everything’s gone,” Matt Devost, a security expert who has had his own private e-mail for years. Commercial services like those from Google Inc. and Yahoo! Inc. retain copies even after users erase them from their in-box.

Although Clinton worked hard to secure the private system, her consultants appear to have set it up with a misconfigured encryption system, something that left it vulnerable to hacking, said Alex McGeorge, head of threat intelligence at Immunity Inc., a Miami Beach-based digital security firm.

The e-mail flap has political significance because Clinton is preparing to announce a bid for the Democratic nomination for president as soon as April. It also reminds voters of allegations of secrecy that surrounded Bill Clinton’s White House. In those years, First Lady Hillary Clinton fought efforts by some White House advisers to turn over information to Whitewater investigators and, later, sought to keep secret records of her task force on health-care reform. […]

The committee also said Wednesday that it has discovered two e-mail addresses used by Clinton while secretary of state.

Nick Merrill, a Clinton spokesman, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment, though he said in a statement Tuesday that her practices followed “both the letter and spirit of the rules.” […]

In order to ensure her e-mails were private, Clinton’s system appeared to use a commercial encryption product from Fortinet — a good step, McGeorge said.

However, when McGeorge examined the set-up this week he found it used a default encryption “certificate,” instead of one purchased specifically for Clinton’s service. Encryption certificates are like digital security badges, which websites use to signal to incoming browsers that they are legitimate.

“It’s bewildering to me,” he said. “We should have a much better standard of security for the secretary of state.”

Report: Prosecutors Now Considering Robbery Charges Against Michael Brown Mom…

Expect more “mostly peaceful” protests

Via TSM:

Prosecutors are now considering criminal charges against members of Michael Brown’s family in connection with a violent confrontation over the sale of merchandise commemorating the late teenager, who was shot to death last year by a police officer.

The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney recently received the results of a months-long investigation by Ferguson Police Department detectives who probed the October 18 beating and robbery of t-shirt vendors, one of whom was hospitalized following the assault.

A prosecutor’s spokesperson told TSG that lawyers are now reviewing material forwarded by police, a package that addresses charges that could be filed against the suspects. […]

According to the report, a group of about 20-30 suspects “jumped out of vehicles and rushed” Gordon, Tony Petty, and Matthew Cosey. Gordon told police that McSpadden, 34, approached her tent and said, “You can’t sell this shit.” Gordon replied, according to the report, that “unless McSpadden could produce documentation stating that she had a patent on her son’s name she (Gordon) was going to continue to sell her merchandise.”

At that point, McSpadden’s mother, Desureia Harris, began to rip down t-shirts hanging on a line, Gordon told police. Other members of the group then began “tearing her booth apart,” added Gordon, who said she was knocked to the ground and repeatedly struck in the head.

Hillary Clinton AKA HDR22 Gets A Pass On Private Email Server As SOS…

By the time the primary rolls around, this will be distant memory with the low information voters…same ones that can name the last ten American Idol winners.

Via Bloomberg

A Catch to political scientist Brendan Nyhan, who explains in detail why the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal won’t matter to the outcome of the presidential election:

Few Americans are paying attention to any aspect of the campaign at this point. Those who do notice will most likely divide largely along partisan lines, with Democrats interpreting her actions more charitably, especially once they see Republicans attacking Mrs. Clinton on the issue.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from past presidential campaigns, it’s that most supposed game-changers like this quickly fade from the memory of the political class, having never been noticed by most Americans in the first place.

Remember, candidates and campaigns matter a lot in nomination politics, but much less in general elections (so long as both candidacies have similar resources). At that point, party is the most important factor, with the economy and other “fundamentals” such as war and peace having an important but secondary effect.

How do most voters deal with the avalanche of available information? Not by setting up rational lists of pros and cons (hmmm, I didn’t like the way she handled Benghazi, but I liked how she elevated women’s issues in the world). Most voters will cherry-pick information corresponding to their partisan views, so a Clinton supporter will cling to positive stories and try to ignore the negative ones (vice versa for her detractors).

US Ambassador To South Korea Attacked With Razor Blade In Seoul…

The US ambassador to South Korea, Mark Lippert, was injured in an attack by a razor-wielding assailant Thursday in Seoul, police and television reports said.

The YTN news channel, citing police sources, said a man with a razor blade concealed in his right hand had attacked Lippert as he was attending a breakfast function in central Seoul.

The channel carried a picture showing the bleeding ambassador holding his right hand to his right cheek, with his left hand smeared with blood.

Lippert, 42, was taken to hospital, but his injuries were reportedly not life-threatening.

The assailant, who was immediately taken into custody, reportedly shouted an anti-war slogan as he lashed out at the envoy, who only took up his post in Seoul last October.

The United States and South Korea launched annual joint military exercises this week, triggering a surge in tensions with North korea.

The 75 RINO’s Who Voted To Fund Obama’s Amnesty And Ignore The Constitution…

112th Congress Convenes On Capitol Hill

The Status Quo remains.

Via BPR

House Republicans, led by Speaker John Boehner, caved in to Democrat demands and passed a “clean” funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday.

The bill includes funding for Obama’s executive amnesty actions, a sticking point for conservatives.

The legislation provides funding for Obama’s move to shield about 5 million illegals from deportation.

Boehner and the Republicans who passed the bill picked the same day as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address before Congress — perhaps using it as cover to push the bill through with less major media attention.

The New York Daily News reported that Boehner addressed Republicans and told them that the immigration issue in the hands of the courts and Congress should “move on with other business.”

The News, however, summed up the conservative argument succinctly.

Many conservatives have long argued that allowing Obama’s amnesty order to be funded means the president’s program will continue, despite what the courts may rule, as the administration has previously shown its willingness to defy or bypass court orders.

And once amnesty is in place, critics contend, non-citizens falling under its protections could well be put on a path to the voting booth that would give their Democrat enablers a virtual lock on national political power.

Can there be a quicker way to “fundamentally transform America” than to create a virtual one-party system by flooding the country with new, Democrat, voters?

The 74 Republicans who joined Boehner to vote with the Dems were….

Feds Processed 7 Million Immigration Applications…IN ONE YEAR…

Obama Speech in Denver, Colorado

This is a ridiculous number…

Via Breitbart:

On Tuesday, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials revealed that the agency processed nearly seven million immigration-related applications in just one year alone (fiscal year 2014). Because the agency does not have the resources to conduct in-person interviews with every applicant, officials noted that applicants for President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood (DACA) program did not have to go though face-to-face interviews before being granted temporary amnesty.

Potential applicants for President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty program for the illegal immigrant parents of U.S. citizens will also not be given in-person interviews if the federal government is allowed to proceed with its implementation after the court case against it is resolved.

At a Senate Immigration and the National Interest Judiciary Subcommittee hearing on the day the House passed a “clean” Homeland Security funding bill that did not defund Obama’s executive amnesty, Donald Neufeld, the Associate Director of Service Center Operations for USCIS, told the Senators that “USCIS administers the world’s largest immigration system that includes more than 100 immigrant and nonimmigrant classifications and more than 200 different forms and applications.”

He said that in fiscal year 2014 alone,”USCIS adjudicated nearly 7 million petitions and requests,” including applications for President Barack Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, naturalization and adjustment of status, visas, asylum and refugee requests, and humanitarian protections.

Senate Can’t Override Obama’s Keystone Veto; Effort Falls 5 Votes Short…

President Obama Speaks At Southern Site Of The Keystone Oil Pipeline

Via Washington Examiner:

The U.S. Senate voted down a key vote to override a White House veto on a bill to approve the contentious Keystone XL pipeline, which the GOP sees a key to job creation and maintaining a strong U.S. infrastructure.

The vote on override a presidential veto failed 62-37.

The Senate had passed the bill 62-36 in January.But last month President Obama vetoed the measure.

Republicans have said that if they couldn’t override Obama’s veto, they plan to wrap legislation green-lighting the 1,700-mile pipeline into a spending measure or broader bill, such as the federal highway bill.

But Democrats who oppose the $8 billion Canada-to-Texas project say they’re confident Obama would continue to nix legislative attempts to approve the pipeline.

The administration has maintained it would reject bills that circumvent a federal review for a cross-border permit TransCanada Corp. needs to build the pipeline’s northern leg. That State Department review has been ongoing for more than six years.

Keyword: Informed. We’re all aware not everyone is informed…to put it lightly.

Via Townhall:

If the 2016 presidential elections were held today, Hillary Clinton would become the next President of the United States, according to a Rasmussen poll released Tuesday.

But Governor Scott Walker would give her a run for her money.

Rasmussen asked 1,000 likely voters who they would vote for in head-to-head choices between Clinton and other likely GOP nominees. Between Clinton and Walker, 46 percent of respondents said they would support Clinton, while 41 percent would vote for Walker — a five-point difference, and the strongest Republican lead in the poll.

Walker’s lead is even stronger among informed voters: among the 35 percent of respondents that claimed to be keeping up to date with reports about next year’s elections “very closely,” Walker beat Clinton 51 to 43 percent.

Former Governor Jeb Bush and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson were runners up in the poll.

Outrageous Abortion Doctor Tells Princeton Students People “Have To Get Over The Love Affair With Fetuses”…

You’ve got to be a special breed of person to do this stuff…

Via Campus Reform:

In an hour long talk to Princeton University students, abortion doctor Willie Parker admitted to being willing to give abortions at 27 weeks during a lecture on reproductive justice to the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs on Wednesday, Feb. 18.

Parker is one of two doctors who travels to Mississippi to perform abortions at the state’s sole remaining abortion clinic. He compared himself to Star Trek and overcoming the final frontier – providing abortion care.

Part of being on the front line, according to Parker, involves recognizing the need and continuing the message hoping people will pick up and join the mission, much like the fight against Ebola.

The lecture, “Going to Mississippi: If I Don’t, Who Will? The Pursuit of Reproductive Justice,” was open to the public. Roughly half of the audience consisted of students, according to Princeton University student Brandon Joa.

The event was publicized on the university website, the WWS’s Twitter account, in emails sent to students, on posters, and in the campus newspaper. Posters said that Parker was on “the pursuit of reproductive justice” and praised him for his “leadership and courage.”

During his lecture, Parker claimed he went to Mississippi to help women gain accessibility to abortion. Parker stated that liberalizing abortion is safeguarding a woman’s right to choose how to live her life.

Prosecutors Considering Criminal Charges Against Michael Brown’s Family Over Beatdown Of T-Shirt Vendors…

This…could get very interesting.

Via Smoking Gun:

MARCH 4–Prosecutors are now considering criminal charges against members of Michael Brown’s family in connection with a violent confrontation over the sale of merchandise commemorating the late teenager, who was shot to death last year by a police officer.

The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney recently received the results of a months-long investigation by Ferguson Police Department detectives who probed the October 18 beating and robbery of t-shirt vendors, one of whom was hospitalized following the assault.

A prosecutor’s spokesperson told TSG that lawyers are now reviewing material forwarded by police, a package that addresses charges that could be filed against the suspects.

The decision on whether to pursue charges in connection with the ransacking of the “Justice for Mike Brown” merchandise operation (seen above) is particularly sensitive since Lesley McSpadden, Brown’s mother, is named in a police report as one of the “attackers” who participated in the assault, which cops classified as a felony armed robbery.

Additionally, prosecutors are mulling charges in the face of a Department of Justice probe that has concluded that Ferguson cops have engaged in a “pattern and practice” of discrimination against African-American citizens, whose rights have routinely been violated by members of the Missouri city’s predominantly white police force.

NJ Deli Owner’s “White History Month” Sign Is Bringing The Outrage Squad Out In Full Force…

Naturally.

Via NJ.com:

FLEMINGTON — The sign in the deli window says, “CELEBRATE YOUR WHITE HERITAGE IN MARCH, WHITE HISTORY MONTH.”

Jim Boggess, proprietor of Jimbo’s Deli on Main at 22 Main St., says, “No matter what you are — Muslim, Jewish, black, white, gay, straight — you should be proud of what you are. I shouldn’t have to feel bad about being white.”

But a neighbor and former customer, Bhakti Curtis, who is bi-racial, doesn’t accept that. He said the sign, is “mocking Black History Month,” especially the way the T was crossed in “WHITE.” The cross piece was not right at the top, it was lower down, in a style used by the Ku Klux Klan and other white-power groups, Curtis said. That cross piece of the T has since been broadened to make it a more traditional, if top-heavy, capital T.

On March 3, Curtis saw the sign, told Boggess it offended him, but got no satisfaction. So he filed a complaint with the Flemington police. Detective Sgt. William Svard said Cpl. Louis Hribik’s report indicates that Curtis said the sign is “racist,” that he felt harassed by it and wanted to know what would be done about it.

Obama Regime Strategically Hid 100,000 Amnesty Approvals From Texas Judge…

Typical. What doesn’t this administration hide?

Via Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama’s deputies hid the rapid-fire start of his November amnesty from the Texas judge who is now weighing the amnesty’s legality.

The cover-up was exposed March 3, the same day that top GOP leaders pressured GOP legislators to pass a toothless budget bill for the Department of Homeland Security, which doesn’t block funding for Obama’s unpopular and possibly illegal amnesty.

Obama signed the funding bill March 4.

On Feb. 16, the Texas judge froze Obama’s two-part amnesty, which was intended to provide residency, work-permits and tax-rebates to roughly five million illegals.

The program for roughly 1 million younger illegals is called the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” and it was launched in June 2012, five months before the 2012 election. Obama’s November amnesty upgrades the 2012 DACA work-permits from two years to three years.
