Mirror Mirror On the wall








A BAWNY REDUX



Barney Frank has spent his entire career attacking “right-wingers,” yet Frank did more to help the efforts of the real right-wingers, Islamic terrorists attacking America, than has any American politician in history. His stated reason for doing it, sponsoring a bill that struck the exclusion clause from the Immigration and Nationality Act in 1989, was to help left-wing poets, particularly his friend Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the author of “My Melancholy Whores,” enter the country legally to sell books. Marquez was denied a visa by the State Department because of his ties to Fidel Castro. As a member of Congress, Frank could have chosen to sponsor a trip for the harmless Marquez himself. Instead he sponsored a law that made it possible for all visa applicants to enter the country legally unless there was “proof” they had been involved in “terrorist activities.” Any lawyer worth a damn would tell you that it would be difficult to prove that Osama bin Laden was involved in “terrorist activities.”

Gerald Posner, in his book “Why America Slept: The Failure to Prevent 9/11,” wrote that Frank had “led a successful effort to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act so that membership in a terrorist group was no longer sufficient to deny a visa. Under Frank’s amendment, which seems unthinkable post–Sept. 11, a visa could only be denied if the government could prove that the applicant had committed an act of terrorism.” Former CIA directors James Woolsey and George Tenet have both testified that Congress had opened the floodgates to terrorists. After its passage, terrorists associated with Hamas and al-Qaida began entering the country with legal visas, began recruiting domestic terrorists and sending funds to overseas “charities,” according to the congressional testimony of terrorism expert Steven Emerson.

SIX THINGS

{1} Once all villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer all the people gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella.

That's FAITH.

{2} When you throw babies in the air, they laugh because they know you will catch them.

That's TRUST.

{3}  Every night we go to bed without any assurance of being alive the next morning, but still we set the alarms to wake up.

That's HOPE.

{4} We plan big things for tomorrow in spite of zero knowledge of the future.

That's CONFIDENCE.

{5} We see the world suffering, but still we get married and have children.

That's LOVE.

{6} On an old man's shirt was written a sentence I am not 80 years old; I am sweet 16 with 64 years of experience.'

That's ATTITUDE.


Have a happy day and live your life like the six stories. When I was a child, I thought nap time was punishment. Now it's like a mini-vacation.

Student Speech Codes




   





Welcome to the Spotlight Speech Codes Database


An overwhelming majority of colleges and universities across the country deny students the rights they are granted under the First Amendment or institutional promises. Every year, FIRE reads through the rules governing student speech at more than 400 of our nation's biggest and most prestigious universities to document the institutions that ignore students' rights—or don't tell the truth about how they've taken them away. FIRE's Spotlight database will tell you if your school is one of them.



umspeech
University of Maryland – College Park has been given the speech code rating Green. Green light institutions are those colleges and universities whose policies nominally protect free speech.

How's your school  doing?

Nothing says "Monday" quite like the threat of imminent nuclear destruction from a diminutive, family-murdering psychopath. In this case, we're referring to North Korea's Kim Jong-un (also known as the "Pillsbury Dough Boy of Death") who has declared that if a "single bullet is fired" by U.S. forces in Korea, they will nuke us into oblivion.

Even with a famously calm, cautious, and cool-headed President like Donald Trump delicately handling the crisis, it is at least a little bit worrisome to contemplate North Korea's desire to wreak havoc on our nation and the world. Especially since they could quite possibly pull it off, thanks to our old friends Bill and Hillary Clinton.

As you may recall if you don't get all your news from mainstream media, Hillary "That Glass Ceiling Is Thicker Than It Looks" Clinton and her husband raised tens of millions of dollars for their (ahem) "charitable foundation" by peddling State Department access and favors, as well as signing off on highly questionable deals like selling 20% of America's uranium reserves to Russia.

But this was hardly new behavior for the gruesome twosome. Way back in 1996, when the Clintons were actually renting out the Lincoln bedroom for sleazy celebrity romps in return for campaign contributions, Bill struck a controversial deal (again for hefty campaign donations) to let the Loral Corporation sell advanced missile guidance technology to China.

After which, in a spontaneous burst of unbridled capitalism, China sold the technology to the lunatics running North Korea - a terrifying and entirely predictable outcome which the Clintons didn't give a flying damn about as long as their illicit checks cleared. Some things never change.

And are Hillary's supporters outraged over this? They are not - and probably wouldn't be even if they'd heard of this existential nuclear threat and the attendant scandals (which they haven't). Instead, they spent the weekend in breathless distress over reports that climate change could cause mammals to shrink by as much as 15%.

In this nightmarish scenario, horses would become the size of slightly smaller horses, Great Danes would become the size of regular Danes, and the average sociopathic asshole would be exactly the size of Kim Jong-un. Atomic Ache

When the usher noticed a man stretched across three seats in the movie theater, he walked over and whispered "Sorry sir, but you are allowed only one seat." The man moaned but didn't budge. "Sir," the usher said more loudly, "if you don't move, I'll have to call the manager." The man moaned again but stayed where he was. The usher left and returned with the manager, who, after several attempts at dislodging the fellow, called the police.

The cop looked at the reclining man and said, "All right, what's your name, joker?" "Joe", he mumbled. "And where are you from, Joe?"


Joe responded, painfully, "the balcony."

I  watched the entire season of Versally in pretty much one dose.  Louis XIV, who reigned for nigh on 70 years, was a real pisser. At just 5'2" he lends himself to portrayal by most Hollywood actors, so there's that bit of reality too.  His brother, Philippe I, Duke of Orléans, was unabashedly effeminate and homosexual, and I do admit to having some squeamish moments with his bedroom play; but it's historically accurate, as is the entire production.  There is a steady stream of heterosex going on however, and none of the women are ugly.  We learn that ladies of that period did not go Brazillion. I finished the 10th, and final episode to discover that I was watching season one!  AWK. And S2 is yet to arrive. I'm left hanging.

 By the by, NetFlix is abandoning its rating system in April. Evidently because of complaints by the likes of Amy Schumer, that people who think she's a filthy slut and a boorish one trick pony gave her movie one star (
I know I did) and that  hurt her box office.   Where was I?  Oh, right, I give Versally 5 stars because, what else can I do after going without sleep and showers until I finished.

On a sad note, after watching a Louie C.K. special, the end credits memorialized recently passed comedians  One on them was John Pinette! Holy crap.  He died a few years ago  and I had no idea.  Over the years I've come to, not just like his humor, but think of him as a friend.  Srsly. I actually teared up. 

Me and MoSup habitually watch a movie/series with dinner.  Our all-time favorite series is Blue Bloods.  Amazon has six seasons, and we have S7  recorded live.  Having exhausted them all, we wanted to redo The Mentalist, but the CBS show is impossible to find.  Amazon is selling the series on CD for a mere $149.   Too much.  I went to eBay and bought the entire series, shrink wrapped box set, for $50!  We're now on season 2. 

When we finish I retire to my den, from whence I read mail, an watch more movies.  MoSup goes to One World News and immerses herself in the politcal outrages of the day.  This is a total role reversal.  I do my best to ignore the daily machinations of our ratbastard congress, and other Obamunists.  Because I must. Or go insane.

Check out Mrs. Brown's first article for American Thinker!

"A Catholic College Disses Crusaders", by Kathy Brown, Esq.


Excerpt:

Last week, Alvernia University, an ostensibly Catholic university in Reading, Pennsylvania, announced it had scuttled its teams’ “Crusader” mascot and removed the name and image of “Crusaders” from its various team and university logos. More than just the most recent casualty in the Islamic war against the West, this strikes at the very heart of Judeo-Christian culture, namely, the Crusaders!

 It is not too much to say that, but for those real “holy warriors”, the West would not be the West, and indeed we'd all be chanting Allahu Akhbar five times a day with our rumps in the air and all the (genitally mutilated) women at the back of the bus. Sorry, I meant the mosque. Yes, Alvernia U. this week distinguished itself from the ranks of your everyday, run-of-the-mill quislings and topped the charts in the perfidy derby. Caving to pressure from the Muslim Students’ Association (part and parcel of the Muslim Brotherhood), Alvernia removed all references to the name and image of a “Crusader”. The replacement has yet to appear, but we may all rest assured that it will be something “diverse”, something “inclusive”, and above all something not “troublesome” or “offensive” (which was how the Crusader mascot/logo was characterized by Alvernia’s officials, for whom the great courage of those knightly Crusaders might as well be entombed with their bones). Of course, the replacement won't include any “Catholic” names. Or “Christian”, or “Jewish”. No saints need apply, and as for anything even vaguely smacking of “whiteness”, well...!

In 2015, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) highlighted the problem in a letter to the IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, explaining that “In a tax system based on voluntary compliance, the integrity of the tax administration process and protection of taxpayer rights is of paramount importance. To those ends, Congress put in place specific restrictions on government action in the examination process.”



The strangest thing about the IRS is that Lois Lerner is not (NOT) in prison; and Donald Trump has left IRS Commissioner John Koskinen at the helm?!?. Meanwhile, the agency continue to bolster tax collection/political assassination weaponry with this killer.  Extrapolation must lead to the point where the IRS will deputize bill collection agencies to scrutinize tax return information for a commission.

ISIS: Need Man Who Can Throw the BOMB



MOSUL, SYRIA – After a period of time where it appeared Colin Kaepernick may be out of a job for quite some time, he’s finally found a home.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, ISIS has decided to sign the former 49ers quarterback to a one-year deal worth in upwards of $7 million.

Kaepernick opted out of his contract with San Francisco weeks ago, and hadn’t garnered much interest even with numerous teams in need of veteran quarterbacks, until now of course.

“الأَبْجَدِيَّة العَرَبِيَّة‎‎الأَبْجَدِيَّة الالأَبْجَدِيَّة العَرَبِيَّة‎‎ يَّة‎‎ ” said ISIS GM Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

“We think he can be a strong asset for us, a translator said. “He’s not very accurate, but with bombs and grenades, that isn’t the most important of attributes.”

“He is quite explosive though,” he added. “At only 7 million, he’s a real bang for your buck.”

The Coming S**T Storm

                        
             Liberal Culture                   

                      




???!!!??? In a nutshell, after Trump was elected leftists demanded recounts in states they felt entitled to win, and lost.  Like Ohio.  Right off the bat, Ohio's court mandated recount, led by Secretary of State Jon Husted,  discovered that hundreds of non-US citizens are registered to vote in, and many (one is too many) of them did vote illegally. In one sampling alone, 385 non-US citizens are registered to vote, and 82 of them cast illegal ballots!  At this point the court suspended further recount (dare we think before the full magnitude of the problem was revealed?).

Secretary of State  Husted then properly embarked on a cleansing of Ohio voter rolls.  Duh.  I mean, to not do so would constitute failure of a fiduciary obligation.

So, leftist Philip Randolph Institute, and the ACLU, et.al. filed to stop any effort to rid Ohio's voter roll of its dead (who, when they vote, vote Democrat) and illegal aliens who are, for the most part, allowed to be here by the Democrat Party for that very service. Their argment is it violates Voting Law guidelines. Common sense alone  tells us that any Votor Law that  suffers  criminal action is itself a useless document.

Anyway, it is then accurate to charge the Democrat Party, and obliging GOP vassals, with the attempted overthrow of constitutional law.  I call that treason.  And that, boys and girls, explains almost everything.  We are become a lawless nation.   There can be but one conclusion.

Things that make you go... hmmmm....
