Netanyahu met with Obama today at the White House and the Pinkos are out in full force protesting.
Do any of these people have jobs?
Calling the Iraqis incompetent is being kind.
WASHINGTON — Iraqi pilots mistakenly delivered food, water and ammunition to Islamic State militants on a recent mission that was meant to supply their own service members with the supplies, NBC News reported.
“Some pilots, instead of dropping these supplies over the area of the Iraqi army, threw it over the area that is controlled by ISIS fighters,” Hakim Al-Zamili, a member of the Iraqi parliament and a senior security official, told NBC. “Those soldiers were in deadly need of these supplies, but because of the wrong plans of the commanders in the Iraqi army and lack of experience of the pilots, we in a way or another helped ISIS fighters to kill our soldiers.”
A brigadier-general in Iraq’s Defense Ministry also confirmed the news to NBC, attributing it to pilots who were “young and new.” The incident reportedly occurred on Sept. 19.
It’s almost like feminazis are perpetually miserable.
What is sexist and relies on tired stereotypes? That would be Monday night’s “Jeopardy!” category “What Women Want.”
The category name itself reduces half the population into a very ridiculous “Jeopardy!” category, full of trite stereotypes. Yet, somehow this category slipped through the censors, and it was allowed out of the 1950s and into 2014.
“A pair of jeans that fit well, like the 525s from this brand,” was one of the clues. It came came in toe with the answer, “What is Levi’s?” Other clues would lead viewers to believe that all women want is to sip tea, attend Pilates classes and to have our husbands help us with the vacuuming. Yep, this happened.
If libs get their way one day all guns will be confiscated.

California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill creating a new type of restraining order aimed at curbing gun violence in the most populous U.S. state, part of a package of firearms measures approved by the 76-year-old Democrat.
Under the new law, families in California concerned that the mental health of a loved one pose a danger can now seek a restraining order that would allow police to search for and seize any firearms the person may have. The bill was introduced after a mentally unstable man shot and killed six people and wounded another 13 near the University of California’s Santa Barbara campus in May.
Brown vetoed a bill that would have required anyone who makes or owns a homemade gun to obtain a serial number and engrave it on the weapon, including plastic weapons made from 3-D printers. Gun owners opposed the measure, saying it would deface antique weapons.
Another measure Brown signed requires that BB and pellet guns be painted bright fluorescent colors. Proponents say it will help prevent accidental shootings such as the killing of a 13-year-old boy in Sonoma County last year by a police officer who said he mistook toy for a real weapon.
We need to tell this school that “celebrating diversity” is now mandatory.
Via AZ Central:
Students at Willow Canyon High School in Surprise are banding together behind a lesbian couple who has been denied the opportunity to be nominated as homecoming queen and queen due to a school practice where homecoming royalty must be made up of a male and female pair.
Supporters of the couple say any ballots nominating the couple for homecoming royalty were discounted in a recent poll of students.
“We’re tired of the social normality that the king and queen have to be male and female,” said junior Kody Jiles, who added that it was unfair for the school to void student ballots.
Senior Samantha Breedveld said she supports the couple and is discouraged by her school’s opposition to having a same-sex king and queen.
“You’re our school, you’re meant to support your students, not shut them down saying you’re only supposed to do this,” Breedveld said. “It’s just wrong.” Breedveld said Monday just hours before homecoming week kicked off with a powder puff game later that night.
The Dysart Unified School District responded with a statement, saying the high school’s homecoming traditions have been in place for years and that they work with students on the planning for these events.
“The Willow Canyon High School students do not elect a couple as Homecoming Queen and King, rather individual students self -nominate or are nominated to run for Homecoming Queen or for Homecoming King,” the statement said. “Students can nominate themselves or another student. One person is voted in by fellow students to represent female students at Homecoming and one male student is voted in by the students to represent the boys. Who that female and male student is, is up to the student vote.”
The same-sex couple whose ballots were deemed invalid by administrators were not available for comment.
And this is for a 9-year-old.
I spent a good chunk of my early years watching Tom And Jerry cartoons and oddly enough, I’m not racist against black maids.
Via Daily Mail:
Fans of classic Tom and Jerry cartoons have been warned that episodes of the iconic show may depict scenes of ‘ethnic and racial prejudice’.
Subscribers to Amazon Prime Instant Video are now met with a caution before viewing certain episodes of the long-running cartoon.
It follows concerns that the representation of a black maid on early episodes of the cartoon show – which made its first episodes in the 1940s – was an example of the era’s prejudices.
Tom and Jerry: The Complete Second Volume is accompanied by the caution: ‘Tom and Jerry shorts may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today.’
One fan took to Twitter to say: ‘watched Tom and Jerry since the 60s this is the 1st time I’ve ever heard the R word in relation to it. PC madness!’
Another fan wrote: ‘I loved Tom and Jerry as a kid and it never made me think poorly of ethnic minorities or want to smoke cigars.’
According to Dhimmi Jimmy Americans are so blood-thirsty he would have cruised to re-election if he destroyed Iran.
Via Washington Examiner:
Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran.
Interviewed by the show “CNBC Meets,” Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.
“I could’ve been re-elected if I’d taken military action against Iran, shown that I was strong and resolute and, um, manly and so forth,” said the former president, who has established himself as a world human rights leader.
“I could have wiped Iran off the map with the weapons that we had, but in the process a lot of innocent people would have been killed, probably including the hostages and so I stood up against all that all that advice, and then eventually my prayers were answered and every hostage came home safe and free. And so I think I made the right decision in retrospect, but it was not easy at the time,” he said, according to a transcript provided to Secrets.
Eerily reminiscent of Obama’s “God bless” Planned Parenthood remark.
Via Daily Caller:
Vermont’s governor, Democrat Pete Shumlin, was proud to receive Planned Parenthood’s endorsement last week and praised them for their “extraordinary work”– apparently forgetting the willingness of PP clinics in his own state to cover up rape and child abuse.
“Vermont is unusual,” he said. “We should be blessed to live here with a Planned Parenthood that does such extraordinary work and a legislature that will stand behind you.”
Shumlin may have forgotten about the 2002 investigation exposing Planned Parenthood’s willingness to cover for child molesters. Pro-life group Life Dynamics called PP clinics throughout the country, including 12 in Vermont, posing as 13- and 14-year-old girls who’d been impregnated by 22-year-old men asking for abortions.
The age of consent in Vermont is 16, with exceptions for married couples, or if both partners are between and ages of 15 and 19. This means that in every case, the group was informing Planned Parenthood workers of rape.
Tingles nods in approval.
By UC Berkeley law professor Ian Haney López (Raw Story):
… Strikingly, though, many Republicans have been depicting ISIS not primarily as a foreign concern, but as a domestic threat that may portend the invasion, and even the potential collapse, of our country. Especially in the repeated linkage of ISIS to security on the Mexican border, conservative warnings on ISIS seem to constitute a new form of dog whistle politics, the dark art of using coded terms to stir racial anxiety among voters.
First, the claims:
Representative Trent Franks, a Republican from Arizona, warned earlier this month: “It is true, that we know that ISIS is present in Ciudad Juarez or they were within the last few weeks.” He continued: “So there’s no question that they have designs on trying to come into Arizona… If unaccompanied minors can cross the border then certainly trained terrorists probably can to. It is something that is real.”
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas in a CNN opinion piece published on September 10, explained how the nation must prepare to confront ISIS: “First and foremost, Washington should resolve to make border security a top priority finally, rather than an afterthought . . . in light of concerns about potential ISIS activities on our southern border.” First and foremost, we should combat ISIS by focusing on our southern border? Yes, Cruz explained, for “[a]s long as our border isn’t secure, the government is making it far too easy for terrorists to infiltrate our nation.” [...]
It’s easy to shrug off as farcical the warnings of Cruz, Brown and other GOP figures about an ISIS invasion from the south — and then to look askance at those voters who credit such evident absurdities. But this misses the point. ISIS on the southern border is a dog whistle. Decoded, it’s a warning not of any actual military threat, but of accelerating demographic change. This is the real panic that the GOP seeks to harness in the voting booth.
