Florida City Votes For Southern Half Of State To Secede To Save Themselves From Global Warming…

Governor Al Gore?

Via WaPo:

The South Miami City Commission voted 3 to 2 for Florida’s 23 southern counties to secede and form a new state named South Florida because of frustration over environmental issues and a lack of concern by state leaders.

The average elevation in southern Florida is lower than in the north, and global warming and rising sea levels threaten the region, the city said in a resolution  this month. However, getting Tallahassee to pay attention to the growing problem is difficult, the city said.

“South Florida’s situation is very precarious and in need of immediate attention,” reads the resolution. “Presently, in order to address the concerns of South Florida, it is necessary to travel to Tallahassee in North Florida. Often South Florida issues do not receive the support of Tallahassee.”

The need to create a new state is a “necessity for the very survival of the entire southern region of the current state of Florida,” the commission said.

A copy of the resolution will be sent to the 23 counties and all municipalities in Miami-Dade County. To form a new state, a proposal must be approved by the state legislature and U.S. Congress. No state has been formed from a previously existing state since 1863 when West Virginia was created from Virginia.

Obama On Dealing With A Crisis: “This Shit Would Be Really Interesting If We Weren’t Right In The Middle Of It”…

Obama-mad-5-point

So instead he just ignores it and hopes it goes away.

Via Bloomberg Businessweek:

By the time President Obama gave in and appointed an Ebola czar on Oct. 17, the White House response to this latest national crisis had already run a familiar course: the initial assurance that everything was under control; the subsequent realization that it wasn’t; the delay as administration officials appeared conflicted about what to do; and the growing frustration with a president who seemed a step or two behind each new development. Meanwhile, public anxiety mounted as cable news hysteria filled the vacuum and shaped the perception of the unfolding crisis.

Obama calmly insisted there was nothing to worry about when the news first broke of Thomas Eric Duncan’s infection. “It’s important for Americans to know the facts,” he said on Oct. 6. “Because of the measures we’ve put in place, as well as our world-class health system and the nature of the Ebola virus itself, which is difficult to transmit, the chance of an Ebola outbreak in the United States is extremely low.” It soon became clear the health system wasn’t prepared; the virus spread, infecting two nurses who had treated Duncan. One of them had called the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to report having a fever, yet was still allowed to board a commercial airliner on Oct. 13. The CDC’s guidelines were declared “absolutely irresponsible and dead wrong” by Sean Kaufman, director for safety training at Emory University Hospital, where two American missionaries from West Africa were treated for Ebola in August. But Obama clung to his position for two more weeks, even after it began to look ridiculous. [...]

It’s often said in Washington that the best politics is good policy. That hasn’t been Obama’s experience. Dragged down by Ebola and other headaches, his approval rating has dropped to 40 percent, the lowest yet in his presidency. Democrats are on the verge of losing the Senate partly as a result. This reflects the cost of botching the initial response to so many crises. All in all, it’s a fascinating case study in the interplay of modern media and politics, the sort of thing that would make for a good graduate seminar. “As Obama used to say all the time,” Axelrod says, “ ‘This shit would be really interesting if we weren’t right in the middle of it.’ ”

 

Canadian Rock Star Blames “Fascist” PM Stephen Harper Islamic Terror Attacks…

I nominate Kevin Vickers to smack some sense into this turd.

Via HuffPo:

The shootings in Ottawa today prompted many Canadians across the country to turn to Twitter to voice their thoughts.

But a series of tweets by Stars singer Torquil Campbell, sent while parts of Ottawa were still on lockdown, caused considerable outrage as he called Prime Minister Stephen Harper a “fascist,” implied that his policies were indirectly responsible for the attack and predicted “this terrible event will be used by @pmharper to further his authoritarian agenda.”

The negative response came fast and furious, with Campbell engaging and retweeting, including getting into it with Harper’s former communications director Andrew MacDougall, a Stars fan with whom he has previously tussled with on Twitter.

Limbaugh: Voter Fraud May Be Only Reason Dems Stay in Power…

Via Mediaite:

Rush Limbaugh believes that Democrats aren’t as popular as they might seem, so why they keep holding power struck him as confusing. But in reaction to a report about possible voter fraud in Cook County, Limbaugh suspected that––voter fraud––must be a big reason for them continuing to win.

Limbaugh cited polls, as well as less-than-impressive book sales for Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo‘s recent books, to say Democrats aren’t as popular as the media might build them up to be. Of the left in general, Limbaugh said, “They don’t have any audience on their cable news shows. They’re not these rock star, popular, admirable figures that people run around emulating and wish they were like.”

Yazidi Woman Turned Into A Sex Slave By ISIS Begs For West To Bomb Her Brothel…

“If you know where we are, please bomb us. There is no life after this. I’m going to kill myself anyway. Others have killed themselves this morning. I’ve been raped 30 times and it’s not even lunch time. I can’t go to the toilet. Please bomb us.”

Via IJ Review:

Yazidi women who have been captured by ISIS are being used as “sex slaves,” but a more appropriate description of what’s being done to them is brutal inhuman torture.

The torture is so horrific that some women are killing themselves rather than wait for rescue, and one woman even called a friend embedded with the Peshmerga to ask that their brothel be bombed.

A Kurdish activist and friend of the man who received the call tells BBC News that the woman begged:

“If you know where we are, please bomb us. There is no life after this. I’m going to kill myself anyway. Others have killed themselves this morning. I’ve been raped 30 times and it’s not even lunch time. I can’t go to the toilet. Please bomb us.”

Ferguson Protesters Hurl Rocks, Bottles, Metal Rods At Police, Try To Break Through Barricades Protecting Police Station…

Dems would be calling for napalm bombing runs if these were tea party protesters.

FERGUSON – Police say five people were arrested overnight during protests outside the Ferguson Police Department.

St. Louis County Police Sgt. Brian Schellman said Thursday that a crowd of about 200 encroached upon the police headquarters, blocking traffic on South Florissant Road and knocking over barricades.

Five officers were hit with rocks, bottles and a metal rod but no one was injured, Schellman said. Backup officers were dispatched to the headquarters when some in the crowd tried to break through barricades a second time.

By 2 a.m., the crowd dwindled to about four people, Schellman said. The five protesters who were arrested were charged with misdemeanor counts of peace disturbance or failure to disperse. Police did not immediately identify them Thursday.

Typical: Obama Asserts Fast And Furious Executive Privilege Claim For Holder’s Wife…

Attn. General Holder Testifies At Senate Judiciary Hearing On Justice Dept Oversight

Of course.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch announced today that it received from the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) a “Vaughn index” detailing records about the Operation Fast and Furious scandal. The index was forced out of the Obama administration thanks to JW’s June 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and subsequent September 2012 FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 1:12-cv-01510)). A federal court had ordered the production over the objections of the Obama Justice Department.

The document details the Attorney General Holder’s personal involvement in managing the Justice Department’s strategy on media and Congressional investigations into the Fast and Furious scandal. Notably, the document discloses that emails between Attorney General Holder and his wife Sharon Malone – as well as his mother – are being withheld under an extraordinary claim of executive privilege as well as a dubious claim of deliberative process privilege under the Freedom of Information Act. The “First Lady of the Justice Department” is a physician and not a government employee.

Via Newsbusters:

Liberal View co-host (and 9/11 truther) Rosie O’Donnell wasted no time on Thursday in taking the shooting in Canada and spinning it into a plea for gun control in America. The comedienne cited a comment from model Chrissy Teigan. On Wednesday, Teigan tweeted, “Active shooting in Canada or as we call it in America, Wednesday.” O’Donnell raved, “I thought it was brilliant.”

The co-host compared, “But 86 people are killed a day are killed in America with guns. And you know what, that is terrorism here.” O’Donnell has a long history of aggressively pushing gun control, going back to a 1999 attack on Tom Selleck. In 2006, she flatly declared that the Second Amendment is “not really a right.”

CAIR Leaders Organize #Muslims4Ferguson Event Claiming There Has Been A “Criminalization Of Black And Brown Bodies”…

Screen shot 2014-10-23 at 1.50.30 PM

That’s some grade-A race baiting.

Via HuffPo:

The official autopsy report for Michael Brown came out on October 22 — the same day the Coalition to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation has observed a National Day of Protest since 1996. To mark this important day, hundreds of Muslims took to Twitter to show their solidarity using the hashtag #Muslims4Ferguson.

Organized by the Muslims for Ferguson Facebook group, which launched on August 21, the Twitter event invited Muslims everywhere to join in conversation with Imam Omar Suleiman, Imam Dawud Walid, Imam Suhaib Webb and civil rights activists Linda Sarsour and Mustafa Abdullah.

The group wrote on its Facebook page:

“Too many lives have been lost in communities of color because of the criminalization of black and brown bodies — who are being killed and imprisoned and abused because of their dark skin…

We are coming together to say no more Mike Browns, no more John Crawfords, no more Ramarley Grahams, no more Eric Garners, no more Renisha McBrides, no more Trayvon Martins. As Eric Garner said before he was murdered, “It ends today.”
Join the discussion to learn what Islam teaches us about justice and solidarity, and our role in standing up against injustice in our society.”

Clergy and other religious voices have played a prominent role in calling for peace and an end to police brutality throughout the Ferguson protests. On Wednesday #Muslims4Ferguson joined the movement, bringing Muslims together in “solidarity against discrimination and oppression.”

ISIS Raking In Millions From Black Market Oil Sales And Ransoms…

Cal Sun ISIS

The savages raised $20 mil off ransoms alone this year…

Via Washington Examiner:

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria makes $1 million a day from black market oil sales and has raised $20 million in ransom fees this year, according to a Treasury official who warned that the breadth of the terrorist group’s money-raising schemes makes cutting off its funding difficult.

The group “has amassed wealth at an unprecedented pace, and its revenue sources have a different composition from those of many other terrorist organizations,” said David Cohen, Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence.

Speaking at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Thursday, Cohen said that because the Islamic State does not rely on a few rich funders the way other terrorist groups have, the U.S. government will have to adjust its strategy for cutting off funds that support its military and terrorist activities.

“As with the rest of the campaign against [the Islamic State], our efforts to combat its financing will take time. We have no silver bullet, no secret weapon to empty [the Islamic State's] coffers overnight. This will be a sustained fight, and we are in the early stages,” said Cohen, adding that the Treasury will remain committed to degrading the group’s financing as long as it threatens Iraq and Syria.

Ebola Lobbying Soars Amid Crisis…

Ebola

Never let a crisis go to waste.

Via Capitol City Project:

Many health-related companies have kicked their lobbying efforts into high gear after Ebola fears have spread amid the current crisis.

The boost in lobbying by pharmaceutical companies, health professionals, and associations shouldn’t come as a surprise as drug companies have seen their stocks rise significantly after the Ebola virus hit the United States.

The Center for Responsive Politics reviewed the health-related industries lobbying disclosures and found that many companies have jumped all over the issue, with some nearly double their lobbying expenditures.

One such company who doubled the amount they spent on lobbying is Sarepta Therapeutics. Sarepta Therapeutics has been pushing its experimental Ebola treatment AVI-7537 for some time now. In the past, the group has never spent more than $40,000 annually on their lobbying tab. Now,in the third quarter alone, the company has poured $80,000 into lobbying efforts.

Socialism Success Story: Venezuela Rationing Food Again To Citizens At Supermarkets

WO-AU186_VENRAT_J_20141022173758

Venezuela is the socialist paradise it always wanted to be

Via Wall Street Journal:

Venezuela—Amid worsening shortages, Venezuela recently reached a milestone of dubious distinction: It has joined the ranks of North Korea and Cuba in rationing food for its citizens.

On a recent, muggy morning, Maria Varge stood in line outside a Centro 99 grocery store, ready to scour the shelves for scarce items like cooking oil and milk. But before entering, Ms. Varge had to scan her fingerprint to ensure she wouldn’t buy more than her share.

Despite its technological twist on the old allotment booklet, Venezuela’s new program of rationing is infuriating consumers who say it creates tiresome waits, doesn’t relieve shortages and overlooks the far-reaching economic overhauls the country needs to resolve the problem.

White House: Hey Guys, Don’t Read Anything Into Purchase Order For Up to 34M Green Cards…

Sure, now that they mentioned it…

Via CNS News:

(CNSNews.com) – Reporters tried again on Wednesday to find out if a DHS purchase order for millions of green cards signals the magnitude of President Obama’s intention to unilaterally grant legal status to illegal aliens after the midterm election.

The purchase order requests “an estimated 4 million cards annually” and up to 34 million total.

“What we’re talking about here is an order from the Department of Homeland Security to a contractor, related to ongoing operations at the Department of Homeland Security. They’re responsible for issuing green cards,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told Fox News’s Ed Henry.

“I think those who are trying to read into those specific orders about what the president may decide are — are a little too cleverly trying to divine what the president’s ultimate conclusion might be.”

AP Poll: Just 9% Of Likely Midterm Voters Are “Enthusiastic” About Obama…

Even worse for the Dems, only 17% strongly approve of Obama versus 44% who strongly disapprove.

Via WaPo:

We’ve written plenty on this blog about Democrats’ enthusiasm deficit in the 2014 election. This gap was, is and will almost definitely continue to be real through Nov. 4.

But while it’s well understood that Obama’s unpopularity is driving GOP enthusiasm, we haven’t really studied the inverse — i.e. just how little Obama’s presidency is motivating Democrats to vote. [...]

The AP-GfK poll asked the approve/disapprove question, finding 17 percent of likely voters said they strongly approve of Obama and 44 percent strongly disapprove. But then it asked a separate — and we would argue, more enlightening — question about the Obama administration. It asked how people felt about it, and gave them four options: “enthusiastic,” “satisfied but not enthusiastic,” “dissatisfied but not angry,” and “angry.”
