That’s the Chicago Way: Drug Suspect Violently Resists Arrest, Released from Jail Without Charges
Years from now, it might be seen as the moment Chicago might have been saved but wasn’t. “They could have changed things,” people will say. “They could have stood up to the people bringing the city down.” But as it happened, there is little to do but wait to see how far into the deeper and darker abysses of Hell Chicago will descend.
The Muslim Takeover of the ACLU
The ACLU now counts at least eight Muslims on its national executive staff alone. In fact, a Muslim runs the ACLU’s Center for Democracy, while another heads its National Security Project.
The irony is not lost on Steve Emerson, director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
“The ACLU was founded on the basis that there shouldn’t be any blasphemy laws,” said Emerson, who’s airing a new documentary, “Jihad in America: The Grand Deception.” “Yet in the last 10 years, they’ve appointed (to their boards) members of the Muslim Brotherhood who believe in blasphemy laws.”
Whitewashing Islam from terror attack was second atrocity in Orlando
I’ve now come to the conclusion that two separate atrocities occurred when Omar Mateen committed mass-murder at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub.
The first was of course the cold-blooded murder of 49 innocent people and 53 injured.
But the second is how law enforcement, politicians, and the majority of media have gone out of their way to either downplay or whitewash the fact that the gunman was a jihadist carrying out his grotesque crime in the name of Islam.
Lord Monckton: Thank you, America!
For my final broadcast to the nation on the eve of Britain’s Independence Day, the BBC asked me to imagine myself as one of the courtiers to whom Her Majesty had recently asked the question, “In one minute, give three reasons for your opinion on whether my United Kingdom should remain in or leave the European Union.”
My three reasons for departure, in strict order of precedence, were Democracy, Democracy, and Democracy. For the so-called “European Parliament” is no Parliament. It is a mere duma. It lacks even the power to bring forward a bill, and the 28 faceless, unelected, omnipotent Kommissars – the official German name for the shadowy Commissioners who exercise the supreme lawmaking power that was once vested in our elected Parliament – have the power, under the Treaty of Maastricht, to meet behind closed doors to override in secret any decision of that “Parliament” at will, and even to issue “Commission Regulations” that bypass it altogether.
Worse, the treaty that established the European Stability Pact gives its governing body of absolute bankers the power, at will and without consultation, to demand any sum of money, however large, from any member state, and every member of that governing body, personally as well as collectively, is held entirely immune not only from any civil suit but also from any criminal prosecution.
That is dictatorship in the formal sense. Good riddance to it.
At Home or Abroad, Liberals Are Unscrupulous Jerks
In the United Kingdom, using a horrible murder to smear their opponents, then staging near riots at a private residence and even demanding the city of London break away because they didn’t get their way and Billy’s got more ice cream than me, and they, too, have our liberal media carrying their water.
Everyone has a take on how Brexit follows or predicts something for the United States, but in truth, it’s more like a twin event. Liberals acting like jerks, and the media running cover for them. Here or there, it’s pretty much the same.
Collapse of Venezuela Accelerates — Armed Guards Now Riding on Food Trucks
We are watching what happens when the economy of a developed nation totally implodes. Just a few years ago, Venezuela was the wealthiest nation in all of South America, and they still have more proven oil reserves than anyone else on the entire planet including Saudi Arabia. But now people down there are so hungry and so desperate that some of them are actually hunting dogs, cats and pigeons for food. Just a few days ago, I gave a talk down at Morningside during which I warned that someday we would see armed guards on food trucks in America. After that talk was done, I went back up to my room and I came across a New York Times article which had been republished by MSN that explained that this exact thing is already happening down in Venezuela.
Panicked progressives tie #Brexit to #ClimateChange
“Despite being an issue that knows no borders, affects all and is of vital interest to future generations, the environment was low on the agenda ahead of the UK’s historic vote to leave the European Union.
The short answer to what happens next with pollution, wildlife, farming, green energy, climate change and more is we don’t know – we are in uncharted territory. But all the indications – from the “red-tape” slashing desires of the Brexiters to the judgment of environmental professionals – are that the protections for our environment will get weaker.
There is one immediate impact though, right here, right now: the crashing financial markets will damage the huge investments needed to create a cleaner and safer environment and will dent the nation’s fast-growing green economy, one economic sector where the UK could lead.”
#2A: Die Trying.
Weep for those we lost in San Bernadino, in Orlando, in Paris. Weep for the children we lost in Sandy Hook. But do not presume to use their deaths as leverage to deny me the ability to try and put a stop to violence like this if I am ever met with it. You cannot legislate crazy, and I will not allow you to legislate my ability to level the playing field against crazy.
Because in the end, it’s not about having a military grade weapon as a civilian. It’s about having the chance to stand up and raise my weapons against evil, and actually have a fighting chance.
Londoners Ask Emir Sadiq Khan to Secede from Britain
The city went against the national trend by voting in favour of Remain – unlike vast swathes of the north of England and some Tory heartlands in the south.
The Leave vote hit the City of London particularly hard as a day of horror saw billions wiped off FTSE 100 shares.
Frustrated Londoners have now taken to social media to ask London mayor Sadiq Khan to declare the city independent from the rest of the UK and stay in the EU.
Obama Invites 18.7 Million Immigrants to Avoid Oath of Allegiance, Pledge to Defend America
Under the Obama administration’s expansive interpretation of executive authority, legal immigrants seeking citizenship through the nation’s Naturalization process are now exempt from a key part of the Oath of Allegiance.
Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service.
The pledge to help defend America was good enough for the 6.6 million immigrants naturalized since 2005 and good enough for the over 15 million naturalized since 1980, but Obama’s appointees at the USCIS think that is too much to ask of the 18.7 million estimated legal immigrants eligible today for eventual naturalization or the 750,000 who will be naturalized in the coming year.
This radical change was announced a year ago, in July of 2015. Congress did not enact the change in new legislation. There was no congressional debate, no filibuster in the US Senate, and no sit-in in the House to demand that a bill to repeal the USCIS action be brought to a vote.
Switzerland: Basel schools drop pork from lunches to avoid offending Muslims
“Politicians with the conservative Swiss People’s Party believe school authorities in Basel have caved to religious minorities in their decision to take pork off the school lunch menu in the coming school year.” No. They didn’t cave to “religious minorities.” Jews have never demanded that non-Jews stop eating pork, anywhere at any time. They caved to one religious minority, Muslims — the only religious minority that ever demands that the majority conform to its rules.
