White House: Obama’s “Year Of Action” Executive Order Bonanza A Success…

Obama signed act

Even though it made a mockery out of the Constitution.

Via Washington Times:

Two top aides to President Obama hailed his “year of action” as a success Monday, saying the president took more than 80 executive actions without Congress to help the middle class.

National Economic Council Director Jeffrey Zients and Domestic Policy Council Director Cecilia Munoz said in a blog post that Mr. Obama will try to work the the new Republican Congress next year, but will also “continue to use every authority available to make progress through executive actions” in 2015.

In a year-end report, they detailed Mr. Obama’s unilateral actions on everything from raising the minimum wage for federal contractors, to granting deportation amnesty to nearly 5 million illegal immigrants, to reaching an agreement with China to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Flashback: TIME Warns Right-Wing “Extremist Militias” May Kill Cops, Ambush Them In Their Patrol Cars…


They were half right.

Via Daily Caller

Time Magazine warned of a growing threat to cops nationwide in September 2010. The nationally renowned publication argued that sinister individuals would launch targeted attacks against police officers and even ambush them in their patrol cars.

Time alerted readers that these groups and individuals have a disturbing hatred of cops and that there was a real threat of “lone-wolf” attacks.

Who are these groups that present such a threat to police? Right-wing militias, according to Time.

In a lengthy six-page article entitled “The Secret World of Extremist Militias,” then-Time Contributing Editor-at-Large Barton Gellman made the case that America should be deeply worried about private citizens forming militias.

Obama: “I’m Impatient” With Slow Progress In Soothing Race Relations… But I Need To Wait 3 Months For Task Forces Findings…

Waiting 90 days doesn’t exactly strike me as someone who’s impatient.

Via NRO:

President Obama responded to black activists who deny that racial progress has been made in the United States by arguing that they are preempting the possibility of further progress.

“There’s no reason for folks to be patient. I’m impatient. That’s why in the wake of what happened in Ferguson and what happened in New York, we’ve initiated task forces that in 90 days, are going to be providing very specific recommendations,” he told CNN’s Candy Crowley. “On the other hand, I think an unwillingness to acknowledge that progress has been made cuts off the possibility of further progress. If — if critics want to suggest that America is inherently and irreducibly racist, then why bother even working on it? I’ve seen change in my own life. So has this country. And those who would deny that, I think, actually foreclose the possibility of further progress rather than advancing it.”

John Kerry Exploits 10th Anniversary Of Devastating 2004 Tsunami To Push Obama’s Climate Change Agenda…


In the bizarre world of John Kerry earthquakes and tsunamis are caused by global warming.

Via Weekly Standard:

Secretary of State John Kerry used the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami in the Indian Ocean region as a reminder about climate change. The earthquake released huge walls of water that inundated a number of coastal regions in both Asia and Africa just before Christmas in 2004. […]

However, Kerry went on to say that the tsunami “sounded a warning” about climate change as well:

“It also sounded a warning. We know that many regions are already suffering historic floods and rising sea levels. And scientists have been saying for years that climate change could mean more frequent and disastrous storms, unless we stop and reverse course. Last year I visited the Philippines and saw the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan. It is incomprehensible that that kind of storm – or worse – could become the norm. The time to act on climate change is now – before it’s too late to heed the warning.

On this day of reflection, we mourn with our friends in Asia and Africa who were affected by this terrible disaster. We commit to the hard work still ahead to help the region build safer, more resilient communities. And we pledge our best efforts to leave our children and grandchildren a safer and more sustainable planet. Future generations are counting on us.”

Cleveland Gang Tells Members To Kill White Police Officers In Retaliation For Tamir Rice Shooting…

I blame white privilege.

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Heartless Felons gang gave its members orders to kill white police officers to avenge black lives taken by white police officers, including the Nov. 21 Tamir Rice shooting, officials said.

Detectives determined the threat was unsubstantiated after they investigated a screen shot of an email that spread through social media.

The Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Office received the tip and deemed it credible enough to reach out to local police departments to make them aware of the threat.

Sheriff’s office spokesman John O’Brien would not say where or when they got the tip.

O’Brien said the sheriff’s office declined to give specific information about the threat for fear that it would benefit the gang.

Akron Police Chief James Nice said his department received notification of the Heartless Felons’ threat about a week ago via a police bulletin. Nice said the threat was among the reasons he decided to have patrol cars staffed with two officers, instead of one.

“It was in the mix,” Nice said. “We knew there are people like the Heartless Felons who are angry and yell to kill cops.”

North Korea Demands America “Apologize To Mankind” For Making “The Interview” Movie…

Kim Jong Un

Obama would never apologize to an enemy of the United States… no, wait?

Via Raw Story:

North Korea’s National Defense Commission (NDC) released an official statement Sunday concerning both the Sony Pictures hack and the release of the film The Interview, Variety reports.

In the statement — titled “U.S. Urged to Honestly Apologize to Mankind for Its Evil Doing before Groundlessly Pulling up Others” — the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) wrote that a “[s]trange thing that happened in the heart of the U.S., the ill-famed cesspool of injustice, is now afloat in the world as shocking news.”

“The Sony Pictures Entertainment, the biggest movie producer in the U.S., which produced the undesirable reactionary film The Interview daring hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and agitating even terrorism and had a plan to distribute it, was exposed to surprisingly sophisticated, destructive and threatening cyber warfare and has been thrown into a bottomless quagmire after suffering property losses worth hundreds of millions of dollars,” it continued.

The NDC claimed that it had “clear evidence that the U.S. administration was deeply involved in the making of such dishonest reactionary movie.” Moreover, “the U.S. is the chief culprit of terrorism as it has loudly called for combating terrorism everywhere in the world but schemed behind the scene to produce and distribute movies inciting it in various countries of the world.”

Moonbat Psychologists No Fans Of Elf On The Shelf, “He’s Basically A Steroid Shot For The Santa Lie”…


In case anyone wanted to know how the mentally ill view Elf on the Shelf.

Via The Blaze:

Elf on the Shelf has become a cultural phenomenon and a Christmas fixture for a great many families, with parents typically telling their children that the doll is Santa’s little helper who monitors and reports kids’ behavior during the holiday season.

But psychologists are warning that the cute tradition might actually be a bad influence on kids, specifically when it comes to reinforcing positive and negative behaviors.

“This is really not the way kids need to be told what to do and what not to do,” Dr. Bilal Ghandour, a psychologist in Charlotte, North Carolina, told Time Warner Cable News. “It seems to undermine what the parents do. Here are the parents taking care of the kids for 50 weeks a year, and then for a couple of weeks you listen to Santa.”

And he isn’t alone in his critiques. Dr. David Kyle Johnson penned a piece in 2012 for Psychology Today titled, “Let’s Bench The Elf on the Shelf,” during which he, too, discussed the potential pitfalls of the children’s tradition.

Johnson, who has also vocally argued against lying about Santa in the past, believes that the “Elf on the Shelf is basically a steroid shot for the Santa Lie.”

“Your children rely on you to give them accurate information about the way the world is, and you should want them to trust and believe what you say,” he wrote. “But finding out that you have been lying to them – and even been playing an elaborate joke on them … has the possibility of significantly eroding their ability to trust you.”

Brandeis University Student Thinks Execution Of Two Cops Is Hilarious: “LMAO… I Have No Sympathy. I Hate This Racist F-ing Country”…

Khadijah Lynch

What a delightful young woman.

Via TP:

Khadijah Lynch, a student at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA, tweeted that she had “no sympathy for the nypd officers who were murdered today.” Lynch repeated the sentiment the next day, December 21, adding “lmao”–which stands for “laugh my ass off.” Lynch is a junior and an “Undergraduate Department Representative in the African and Afro-American Studies Department,” according to truthrevolt.org.

The NYPD officers were murdered execution-style as they sat in their squad car. The act was allegedly a retaliation for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of police. Lynch’s Twitter account has since been made private. Brandeis is a liberal arts school named for the former Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis. It ranked #35 among national universities in the 2015 US News College ranking. Tuition and fees are $47,833. In the second tweet khadijah Lynch wrote “I hate this racist f—ing country.”

British Soldier Investigated For Touching Taliban Fighter On The Nose With A Piece Of Paper…


Via Telegraph:

A British soldier was investigated for touching a Taliban fighter on the nose with a sheet of paper during a routine interrogation, a former senior military intelligence officer has disclosed.

The soldier was accused of abuse for a minor infringement which broke rules concerning the touching of detainees during questioning.
On another occasion a military intelligence officer in Iraq was investigated for shouting in a suspect’s ear in case he burst an ear drum. The investigation took place four years after the alleged offence, according to the source.

The claims are being made by a former senior interrogator with the Army, who contacted The Telegraph in the wake of this newspaper’s disclosure that the rules governing interrogations are now so stringent that officers feel tactical questioning has become increasingly pointless.

The former interrogator, who did not wish to be identified, said: “There was an incident in 2008 when French soldiers were massacred and the bodies of four of them were mutilated. We had two of the suspects in detention and they were brought in for questioning. One of the interrogators touched one of the suspects on the nose with an A4 piece of paper and he was investigated by the special investigation branch for abuse.

AP Poll: Lib MSM Votes “Police Killings Of Unarmed Black Men” Top News Story Of 2014…


Ferguson rally

The white guilt crowd.

NEW YORK (AP) — The police killings of unarmed blacks in Ferguson, Missouri, and elsewhere — and the investigations and tumultuous protests they inspired — was the top news story of 2014, according to The Associated Press’ annual poll of U.S. editors and news directors.

In a year crowded with dramatic and often wrenching news developments around the world, the No. 2 story was the devastating outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, followed by the conflict in Iraq and Syria fueled by the brutal actions of Islamic State militants.

Among the 85 voters casting ballots, first-place votes were spread among 15 different stories. The Ferguson entry received 22 first-place votes, Ebola 11 and the Islamic State story 12.

The voting was conducted before the announcement that the United States and Cuba were re-establishing diplomatic relations and Sony Pictures’ decision to withdraw its film “The Interview” in the wake of computer hacking and threats.

New York Times Calls On Obama To Order Criminal Investigation Into Dick Cheney For “Torturing” Al-Qaeda…

Screen shot 2014-12-22 at 10.02.43 AM

Really? This is one of the NYT’s top priorities?

Via NYT:

… No amount of legal pretzel logic can justify the behavior detailed in the report. Indeed, it is impossible to read it and conclude that no one can be held accountable. At the very least, Mr. Obama needs to authorize a full and independent criminal investigation.

The American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch are to give Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. a letter Monday calling for appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate what appears increasingly to be “a vast criminal conspiracy, under color of law, to commit torture and other serious crimes.”

The question everyone will want answered, of course, is: Who should be held accountable? That will depend on what an investigation finds, and as hard as it is to imagine Mr. Obama having the political courage to order a new investigation, it is harder to imagine a criminal probe of the actions of a former president.

But any credible investigation should include former Vice President Dick Cheney; Mr. Cheney’s chief of staff, David Addington; the former C.I.A. director George Tenet; and John Yoo and Jay Bybee, the Office of Legal Counsel lawyers who drafted what became known as the torture memos. There are many more names that could be considered, including Jose Rodriguez Jr., the C.I.A. official who ordered the destruction of the videotapes; the psychologists who devised the torture regimen; and the C.I.A. employees who carried out that regimen.

Milwaukee District Attorney Says No Charges Will Be Filed Against White Cop Who Killed Black Man…

Who’s up for another round of rioting?

MILWAUKEE (Reuters) – A former Milwaukee police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man was justified in using force and will not be charged, the district attorney said on Monday, two days after more than 70 demonstrators calling for justice in the case were arrested.

Christopher Manney, who was fired from the Milwaukee police force, was acting in self defense when he shot Dontre Hamilton 14 times during a struggle in Red Arrow Park in downtown Milwaukee on April 30, Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm said in a statement.

Peaceful protests had been occurring regularly in Milwaukee since the incident but none with as many arrests as on Friday, when 74 people were taken into custody after their evening demonstration spilled onto a major freeway, stopping traffic during rush hour.

The demonstration was the latest of several against police violence across the country following recent cases where unarmed black men were killed by white police officers.

NYPD Officers Warned Not To Arrest Anyone “Unless Absolutely Necessary”

And by “anyone” they mean black suspects.

NEW YORK (AP) — Big-city police departments and union leaders around the country are warning the rank and file to wear bulletproof vests and avoid making inflammatory posts on social media in the days after a man ambushed two officers and shot them to death inside their patrol car.

The slayings of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu on Saturday afternoon in Brooklyn heightened fears about the safety of law enforcement officials nationwide, though there is no evidence any threats are imminent. The gunman, 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley, had vowed in an Instagram post to put “wings on pigs” as retaliation for the slayings of black men at the hands of white police. […]

After the officers’ killings, a union-generated message at the 35,000-officer NYPD warned officers that they should respond to every radio call with two cars — “no matter what the opinion of the patrol supervisor” — and not make arrests “unless absolutely necessary.” The president of the detectives union told members in a letter to work in threes when out on the street, wear bulletproof vests and keep aware of their surroundings.

Another directive warned officers in Newark, New Jersey, not to patrol alone and to avoid people looking for confrontations. At the same time, a memo from an NYPD chief asked officers to limit their comments “via all venues, including social media, to expressions of sorrow and condolence.”

Oakland: City Police Unaware Of CHP’s Use Of Plainclothes Officers During Protests


We know which side the Oakland PD is on. Update to a previous story.

Via Inside Bay Area

Officials with the Oakland Police Department said this week that they were unaware the California Highway Patrol used undercover officers — including one who pulled a gun on protesters after he said he feared for his partner’s safety — during recent demonstrations on Oakland streets.

“We’ve been unable to find anyone that knew that particular detail existed,” Oakland police Sgt. Holly Joshi said.

The undercover officers, called “plainclothes” officers by CHP officials, were monitoring a protest on Dec. 10 when their cover was blown by suspicious protesters. While attempting to arrest a suspect who had allegedly struck an officer, another officer drew his service pistol and pointed it at bystanders who the CHP said were advancing on the pair.

The revelation from Oakland police is contrasted by statements given last week by Avery Browne, chief of the CHP’s Golden Gate Division, who said that Berkeley and Oakland police officials knew CHP was using officers dressed in street clothes marching alongside demonstrators.[…]

he CHP has been assisting Berkeley and Oakland with controlling protests under a mutual aid agreement, a system created by the state in 1961 to allow neighboring agencies to assist each other during emergencies or times of civil unrest. Mutual aid agreements are vague, and do not include information on specific details, authorities said.

The two officers in question were following protesters first in an unmarked car, then on foot in downtown Oakland, on Dec. 10, Browne said. As the crowd marched down Harrison Street near Lake Merritt, some became suspicious of the two officers, eventually pulling off their handkerchiefs and hat while asking if they were police officers.

One of the officers drew his service weapon during the melee, saying he feared for his and his partner’s life as he wrestled with one man and a crowd of about 30 circled them, Browne said. One of the officers was kicked in the head and required medical care, officials said.
