Justice is being rationed in the United States, an apparently sober Vice President Joe Biden declared Tuesday in a rambling speech to a special interest group in the legal industry.
Americans must “not be the victims of the rationing of justice,” said Biden, who is trying to win support among progressive groups as he tries to run for the Democrats’ presidential nomination next year.
“It is the ultimate measure of who we are as a country, the extent to which we guarantee every American access to the justice system — every American,” Biden told the audience of lawyers at the 40th anniversary meeting of the Legal Service Corp. Tuesday.
Maybe we should drop the Pinkos into the Islamic State’s “Caliphate” so they can see first hand how non-Muslim women are treated.

Are they worries he will strap a bomb to his chest and self-detonate? Wait, that’s what Muslims do.
CAIR Demands Oklahoma Law Enforcement Protect Them From State GOP Rep…
(OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, 9/16/14) – On Wednesday, September 17, the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) will hold a news conference outside Oklahoma Republican Party headquarters in Oklahoma City to call on state GOP leaders to repudiate a legislator’s incitement to violence against Muslims and to seek stepped up protection for that state’s Islamic community.
CAIR-OK scheduled the news conference after Rep. John Bennett (R-Sallisaw) told constituents at a party gathering last night in Sallisaw, Okla., that Islam’s goal is “the destruction of Western civilization from within,” that the faith is 90 percent “violence” and that Islam “is a cancer in our nation that needs to be cut out.” He added that he is “not going to stand back and let [Muslims] push Islam into our nation.”
We don’t call him “Chicago Jesus” for nothing.

The President and Mrs. Obama are coming to Park Forest-Chicago Heights School District 163 — at least in a manner of speaking.
As part of a realignment of district schools, which took effect with the start of this school year, the former Beacon Hill school has been renamed the Barack Obama School of Leadership and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, the district said Friday in a news release.
Forest Trail school is now the Michelle Obama School of Technology and the Arts, the district said.
Students in fourth through eighth grades attend the two schools.
“The Obama name was selected for the two schools because the values that the First Family models are unparalleled precedents and are values that our students strive to emulate. I believe we are the first schools in the nation to honor the First Family in this manner,” District 163 Supt. Joyce Carmine said in the release.
The Barack Obama school, the district said, will promote the national objectives of improved education in science, technology, engineering and math through learning engagements that focus on student interests. The Michelle Obama school will focus on technology and the arts with an enhanced curriculum that focuses on theater, show choir and visual arts, according to the district.

There are more Muslim children than Christian growing up in Birmingham, figures show.
The latest statistics, extracted from the 2011 Census, give an insight into the fast pace of demographic change across Britain.
They pinpoint several parts of the country where traditional religious beliefs are being eclipsed for the first time.
In England’s second city of Birmingham, of 278,623 youngsters, 97,099 were registered as Muslim compared with 93,828 as Christian. The rest were of other faiths such as Hindu or Jewish, or none.
A similar trend has emerged in the cities of Bradford and Leicester, the towns of Luton, in Bedfordshire, and Slough in Berkshire, as well as the London boroughs Newham, Redbridge and Tower Hamlets, where nearly two-thirds of children are Islamic.
Another genius PR move by the NFL.

Washington Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III, who dislocated his ankle in Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, entered the room for a post-game press conference wearing a T-shirt that said “[K]No[w] Jesus, [K]No[w] Peace” but turned it inside-out before speaking to reporters.
Video and photographic images show Griffin entering the room wearing the shirt–showing its emphatically Christian inscription–and then making remarks at the podium while wearing the shirt turned inside out so that the inscription did not show.
The “K”s and the “w”s in the “Know Jesus, Know Peace” inscription on RGIII’s shirt were in black while the other letters were in white–so that the declaration “No Jesus No Peace” stood out.
Michael Phillips, a sportswriter for the Richmond Times Dispatch, who was in the room tweeted: “RGIII was wearing a t-shirt that said ‘Know Jesus, Know Peace.’ NFL Uniform Inspector Tony McGee (former Skins DE) approached Griffin…McGee told Griffin he couldn’t wear the shirt because it wasn’t a Nike product. Made him turn it inside out for the press conference.”
How incredible dense do you have to be to think this was a good idea?
Woodruff, S.C. – 7 On Your Side was contacted by several upset parents who say Woodruff High School students were made to take down American flags from their vehicles on September 11.
Spartanburg District 4 Superintendent Rallie Liston said four students arrived at the school Thursday morning with U.S. flags propped up on poles in their pickup truck beds.
The school’s principal, Aaron Fulmer, confiscated the flags because he said it is against district policy to “draw attention” to one’s vehicle.
The flags were returned to the students at the end of the day.

Not going to stop the left’s jihad on the NFL.
A former Joe Biden aide who worked for him in the Senate when he wrote the Violence Against Women Act has taken a senior-level position with the National Football League as it struggles with its reputation among women.
Cynthia Hogan will be the league’s senior vice president of public policy and government affairs, the organization announced Tuesday.
“The complex and compelling issues of interest to the NFL and the opportunity to help shape policy on those issues, is a unique and exciting challenge,” Hogan said in a news release. “I could not be more excited about joining the NFL team.”
Hogan worked in the Obama White House from 2009 to 2013 as counsel for Biden, and helped shepherd Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor through her confirmation. She also was on the team that shaped the administration’s anti-gun violence message after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Biden tweeted congratulations to her, calling her “a great friend and a great lawyer.”
The MSM is still missing that at least three people were involved in the killing of Tevlin, as well as the fact that Ali Muhammad Brown had a prior association with a terrorist ring associated with al Shabaab.
Via Fox Nation:
“He could’ve been my son.” That’s what the President said about Trayvon Martin. And it was true. He could’ve passed for the President’s son. No doubt Trayvon’s parents miss him every day. The President also expressed outrage about the death of Michael Brown. Rightly so, no parents should have to bury their sons. It is tragic.
When I look at this picture of Brendan Tevlin, I think, he could have been my son.
A nineteen year old, suburban boy. Strawberry blond, athletic, bright and smiley. On June 25th he texted his Mom, Allison, that he was on his way home from a friend’s house.
But he never made it there. Minutes later, Ali Muhammad Brown walked up to Brendan’s family car, stopped at a red light and fired ten rounds into the car, and killed him.
Brown then allegedly drove the car, with Brendan in it, to a parking lot and left him there.
We live not far from the Tevlin’s and word of the tragedy spread quickly locally. Carjacking? Robbery? What could have happened?
Then at a press conference the police said the killing was “targeted.” That was a loaded word.
Everyone including me thought this: Oh, I see. Brendan was the one picked that night to go buy the pot from some guy in a parking lot and something went very wrong.
Logical maybe, but completely off base. There were no drugs. Just a boy targeted by a killer, who was bent on jihad, because he was a white man and alone.
Here’s more on Brendan Tevlin. Unfortunately, there are also three other people killed by this jihadi as well.
Is trying to commit genocide against Christians a grievance?
“The nature of the threat is such that, as I mentioned, it will only be defeated when moderate Arab and Muslim populations in the region reject it. And therefore, the way forward seems to me to run clearly through a coalition of Arab and Muslim partners, and not through the ownership of the United States on this issue. And so the strategy does that,” Dempsey said when asked whether he agrees with President Obama’s plan to degrade and destroy the Islamic State.
“It seeks to build a coalition, encourage an inclusive government to address the grievances that have caused this in the first place, it applies U.S. military power where we have unique capability to do so, and over time it allows those populations to reject ISIL.”
This. Is. Never. Going. To. End.

Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) announced Tuesday that she will introduce legislation to eliminate the NFL’s tax-exempt status because of its refusal to address the name of the Washington Redskins.
Flanked by several tribal chiefs, Cantwell, who is the former chair of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, condemned the team’s name as a slur against Native Americans.
“The NFL needs to join the rest of Americans in the 21st century,” she said. “It is about right and wrong.”
Cantwell made her remarks at a press conference called by a coalition of Native American and social justice groups leading the campaign against the Redskins’ name.
The group, Change the Mascot, which includes the National Congress of American Indians and the Oneida Indian Nation, is calling on the owners of the 31 other NFL teams to force fellow owner Dan Snyder to change the team’s moniker.
Wonder who gave them this idea?
“Too Big To Fail” has never been applied to a besieged nation torn apart by sectarian factions, but let’s try it here: Afghanistan’s government recently asked the US for a $537 million bailout to pay its bills, and they’d like it within the next “five to six” days.
“We hope they will pay for us, and we are asking at once,” Alhaj M. Aqa, the director general of the treasury at the Ministry of Finance, told The Washington Post. “They are asking me when I need it, and I told them this week or we will have a problem.”
Thanks to a disputed presidential election back in April, which has deterred foreign investors and halted domestic spending (leading to a 25% fall in tax and tariff revenue), the Afghani government has burned through its reserve money and needs nearly a half billion immediately to keep up its infrastructure.
Brilliant idea, lets all go stick our heads in the sand and pretend ISIS isn’t a threat.
(NBC FW) - U.S. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Dallas) argued the beheading of two American journalists by ISIS does not justify U.S. airstrikes into Syria Thursday.
During an interview on Capitol Hill, Johnson said the slayings of James Foley and Steven Sotloff should not lead to bombing ISIS forces in Syria.
“We were on their ground. It was not in the U.S. I do think we need to protect Americans wherever they are. But Americans also need to be careful where they are,” said Johnson.
The Dallas Democrat also said President Obama does not need Congressional authority to escalate the fight against ISIS. But she feels he would be wise to seek approval from the U.S. House and Senate.

The floodgates are about to break even more open…
Via Washington Examiner:
The summer lull in illegal border crossings from Mexico is about to give way to a rush of even more immigrants in a frenzy of fear that Washington is about to shut the door, according to several Hispanic leaders.
In Honduras, for example, U.S. threats coupled with those from local leaders warning about the dangers of crossing the border have instead reenergized children and adults to run fast to America and pay inflated fees to “coyotes” to get them there.
“As I am speaking, hundreds of children are trying to leave Honduras,” said Jose Guadalupe Ruelas, a Honduran leader who advocates for children. “When people in Honduras hear that the U.S. is going to get stricter with immigration rules and laws then people think to themselves, ‘Now is the time for me to go,’” he said through an interpreter.
Ruelas and several other Hispanic leaders met in Washington Tuesday after spending a week in Latin nations responsible for sending over 50,000 children across the U.S. border this year. Officials expect another 145,000 next year.

Michigan Democrat Gary Peters profited from a French oil company that admitted to bribing Iranian officials for access to their oil fields.
Total S.A., the fourth largest oil company in the world, paid $60 million to an influential Iranian administrator over a nine-year period to gain access to lucrative oil contracts, according to a joint investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice.
“During the course of its unlawful scheme, Total and others corruptly made certain payments and took certain acts for the purpose of inducing the Iranian Official to use his influence to assist Total,” the SEC said in allegations against the company.
The Iranian contracts netted Total $150 million in profits. The company admitted to using fake consulting contracts through a Bermuda-based subsidiary to bribe the official.
The company was charged with violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which aims to curb international bribery, as well as numerous federal bookkeeping and securities laws. In 2013, Total agreed to pay nearly $400 million in fines—the largest FCPA fine of the year and the fourth largest in history.
The Peters campaign did not return requests for comment about whether he was aware of the bribery scandal.
In addition to being a Field Organizer for the West Virginia Democratic Party, Collin Peterson is also a staffer for Rep. Nick Rahall, D-West Virginia. No problem with him holding a rifle or what looks like an AK47 imitation airsoft gun. Lot of issue with him appearing to “play terrorist” and post other pro-terrorist imagery:
Perhaps Peterson’s opinion was in part formed by the Islam class he took at Randolph Macon College. Here’s Collin talking about how excited he was:
“And I’m really excited for Islam. I’ve wanted to study it and thought about just taking Western Religions but decided not to I am so burned out of learning about Judaism and Christianity. So i’m really excited they offered. Couldn’t fit Buddhism in which is disappointing but I studied it in Eastern religions so I got it covered!” He apparently was taking the course as part of a religious studies minor.
Representative Rahall looks like he might have no issue with a staffer holding such views, having himself attacked Israel.
Nick Rahall is the most senior Arab-American member in the House. He is of Lebanese descent. He has spoken out in the past in support of Palestine, “Israel can’t continue to occupy, humiliate and destroy the dreams and spirits of the Palestinian people and continue to call itself a democratic state.” Rahall was the only member of the House to oppose the 1993 resolution for an end to the Arab boycott of Israel. Rahall’s sister has been a lobbyist for Qatar.
Peterson pulls his Facebook account.
But the field organizer forgets, the Internet is forever…
