Liberals Built This: Unfinished Prison Costs Detroit $1.2 Million Per Month

This is liberal control.

Via Fox News:

A prison in downtown Detroit that was deemed too expensive to complete is now a construction site frozen in time that still costs cash-strapped local taxpayers more than $1 million a month.

It was supposed to be a state-of-art lockup in the heart of the Motor City, but four years after breaking ground, with construction costs totaling $150 million and no end in sight, the city pulled the plug on the project four years ago.

Now, the Wayne County Jail sits empty among the ruins of a bankrupt city, costing taxpayers upwards of $1.2 million in debt service and monthly upkeep costs for electricity, security, sump pumps – and even off-site storage for pre-fabricated jail cells that will never be used.

Two Cars Try To Breach An Exit At Fort Benning, GA, Shots Fired, One Suspect Caught, Others On The Run

benning

Generic suspects on the loose.

Via AL Com

Patton Village residents at Fort Benning were given the “all clear” notice about four hours after two civilian vehicles went through an unauthorized entry point on Sand Hill and shots were fired, post officials said on its Facebook page late Thursday.

The Department of Emergency Services arrested one suspect after shots were fired about 2:25 p.m. and Columbus Police are continuing to search for three to five men who are possibly in nearby woods. Authorities also seized two hand guns, one from each of the vehicles.

Post officials checked all vehicles entering the installation until the area was cleared. Fort Benning police will maintain a high level of patrols in the Patton Village area throughout the night. Residents are urged to lock their doors and windows and remain vigilant for suspicious activity in the area.

All gates at Fort Benning remain open . Residents should call 911 to report any suspicious.

Gary Jones, the director of public affairs for the Maneuver Center of Excellence, said the two vehicles were trailing one another at a high rate of speed when they attempted to enter the Sand Hill exit point at 2:25 p.m. Because the location is an exit point, Jones said the raised “tiger teeth” stopped both vehicles and flattened their tires. Both vehicles continued to move toward the new elementary school construction near Patton Village.

Three to five men left the first vehicle and ran into the wood line. That’s when shots are believed to have been fired.

The driver of the second vehicle was arrested and authorities found one weapon in the vehicle as the other suspects fled. Police also seized a pistol from the first vehicle.

Authorities with DES and Columbus Police Department conducted door to door searches for the suspects. They used K-9 teams and other law enforcement personnel but no suspects were found.

During the search, residents were sent a giant voice message which stated ” “Warning, Fort Benning Police are searching for possibly armed suspects in your area – call 911 if you see suspicious personnel. Recommend stay indoors until an all clear is given.”

The shooting remains under investigation . Jones said the Federal Bureau of Investigation may be involved with investigation because shots were fired on a military installation.

Arizona Biker Group Holding Draw Mohammed Contest, ISIS Operative Linked To Garland Calls For Attack…

Via ABC 15:

An anti-Islam rally in Phoenix on Friday will feature a Muhammad cartoon-drawing contest.

The scheduled location is outside the Islamic Community Center in north Phoenix.

The gathering comes less than a month after a similar event in Texas sparked gunfire that left two gunmen, both from Phoenix, dead.

The gunmen, whom federal officials identified as Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, wounded a security officer before they were shot and killed at the scene.

Simpson had worshipped at the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix for about a decade, but he quit showing up over the past two or three months, the president of the mosque told The Associated Press.

A convert to Islam, Simpson first attracted the FBI’s attention in 2006 because of his ties to a former U.S. Navy sailor who had been arrested in Phoenix and was ultimately convicted of terrorism-related charges. Less was known about Soofi, who appeared to have never been prosecuted in federal court, according to a search of court records.

The organizer of Friday’s event said he had to do “something” because he does not want Islam spreading in the U.S.

“We’re just out utilizing our First Amendment,” organizer Jon Ritzheimer said.

Ritzheimer said he would not shoulder any responsibility if the event turned violent.

The Valley man organized an anti-Islam rally outside the same location several weeks ago, which was peaceful, he said.

And CAIR is milking it for all the publicity it’s worth:

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby Thanks Paid Racial Agitator Deray McKesson For His Support

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 9.21.12 PM

Marilyn Mosby claimed today that her personal account had been hacked and that tweets she endorsed calling the 6 officers she charged ‘thugs’ and saying that she would concern a “certain type of white person”, were not made by her. Given that the rest of her personal account appears unaffected by this apparently highly selective hacking, one has to doubt the honesty of Ms. Mosby’s assertions.

In case anyone tries to argue that Mosby doesn’t know who she is talking to In McKesson, we note her husband actually welcomed McKesson and Johnetta Elzie to the city, when they came to agitate. He even included a #BlackLIvesMatter hashtag in his tweet.

McKesson and other ‘protesters’ have somehow managed to be able to travel from protest to protest, traveling from Ferguson to Baltimore and most recently to Cleveland. As we noted, the Acorn-related group, MORE, is one of the groups who has been paying protesters to protest and we listed payoffs to various protest organizers, including money to travel to various protest events.

McKesson has stated his purpose is not ‘to build’ but specifically to ‘create crisis':

Hundreds Of Millions Of Cost Overruns At U.S. Embassies

Via WFB:

The State Department has undertaken the costly construction of new embassies across the globe.

The new embassy in London is estimated to cost around $1 billion. Glass for the London build was shipped back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean for cutting and framing. The new Afghanistan embassy exceeded $150 million.

The current embassy in Mexico City is currently crumbling, unsafe, and overcrowded. The build was supposed to cost $600 million but has increased at least a third, all before the start of construction. The new site for the embassy was bought four years ago for $120 million and was in a former industry area that was once site to a Colgate Palmolive factory that left hazardous waste.

Emails Make Very Clear That Hillary Was Working On Ways To Secretly Arm Rebels

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 8.34.29 PM

We knew this, but the emails begin to lay it out, including the possible involvement of Republicans like Mike Rogers which explains why they didn’t want to investigate Benghazi.

Via Fox News:

Recently released emails detail then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s interest in arming Libyan opposition groups using private security contractors before the fall of Muammar Qaddafi in 2011 – though at the time, the opposition was not formally recognized by the U.S. or United Nations, which prohibited arming without following strict guidelines and oversight.

The issue remains so sensitive that the emails recently released by the State Department redacted a key line on the matter. But the unredacted version of the same email, released to the congressional Benghazi Select Committee and first posted by The New York Times last Thursday, showed Clinton appearing to endorse the idea of using private contractors to her then-deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan.

“FYI. The idea of using private security experts to arm the opposition should be considered,” Clinton wrote to Sullivan on April 8, 2011, attaching an intelligence report from Hillary’s adviser Sidney Blumenthal. The opposition was known as the Transitional National Council, or TNC.

Another email released by the State Department shows that five days earlier, on April 3, 2011, Bill Clinton said he would not rule out arming the Libyan opposition. The story was circulated by Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s principal personal adviser at the State Department, to “H.” While it’s not clear who “H” is, based on the message traffic it is likely Hillary Clinton or possibly adviser Huma Abedin.

Later that same year, a Sept. 10, 2011 email with a subject line “Rogers” said, “Apparently wants to see you to talk Libya/weapons.”

At the time, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee was Mike Rogers, who abruptly announced he would not seek re-election in the spring of 2014. Rogers did not immediately respond to questions seeking comment. Fox News also filed its own Freedom of Information Act request for the documents in October 2012.

‘Hope’ Artist Calls Obama A Failure, “Not Even Close” To Living Up To Expectations

Shepard Fairey, the street artist behind the famous “Hope” poster that went viral during Barack Obama’s historic 2008 presidential run, said that the president has not lived up to his expectations.

In an interview with Esquire, Fairey acknowledged that “Obama has had a really tough time” but said he’s “not even close” to having lived up to the “Hope” poster created for him.

“I mean, drones and domestic spying are the last things I would have thought [he’d support],” Fairey added in the interview, posted Thursday.

Mother Jones Pitches Bernie Sanders As “Your Internet Boyfriend”, Calls His ‘Rape Fantasy’ “Male-Female Sexual Dynamic”

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders speaks at the opening of the 2015 National Action Network Convention in New York City

We reported earlier on the rape fantasy that Bernie Sanders wrote about in 1972. We know had this been written by a Republican, the media would have been covering it 24/7 and been apoplectic.

But with Socialist Bernie Sanders, eh, not so much. This is Mother Jones’ take on it:

[Sanders] dabbled in carpentry and tried to get by as a freelance journalist for alternative newspapers and regional publications, contributing interviews, political screeds, and, one time, a stream-of-consciousness essay on the nature of male-female sexual dynamics:

Not only that, but apparently they want to encourage you to view him as ‘your internet boyfriend’ because he’s sexy, crazy and beautiful

Arizona State Has Doubled Tuition On Students, While Still Managing To Give $500,000 To Clinton Foundation

Via Campus Reform:

While Arizona State University has almost doubled its tuition over the past 10 years amid claims that it needs more state money, the school somehow had the funds to give half a million dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

According to The Arizona Republic, the public university paid $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation to host the former president-Bill Clinton; former-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; and their daughter, Chelsea, during a Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) event in 2014. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Bill’s wife, is the current front-runner for the Democratic nomination for the 2016 presidential race.

Gothamist writes that according to a new Police Reform Organizing Project report:

On a recent visit to the arraignment part in Brooklyn’s criminal court, PROP volunteers observed that police officers had arrested two Latino men on the charge of “man spreading” on the subway, presumably because they were taking up more than one seat and therefore inconveniencing other riders. Before issuing an [adjournment contemplating dismissal] for both men, the judge expressed her skepticism about the charge because of the time of the arrests: “12:11AM, I can’t believe there were many people on the subway”

Marilyn Mosby Wasn’t In Favor Of Giving ‘Space To Destroy’ When It Came To Her Own Property In Appearance On ‘Judge Judy’…

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake made the phrase famous by stating that she was giving rioters ‘space to destroy’when they rioted on April 27th. Police claimed she held them back, among other claims was that she said,”it’s just property”. Millions of dollars in damage and 100 injured cops followed this foolishness.

While Rawlings-Blake was giving rioters space to destroy, Marilyn Mosby was actually cheering them on, in such speeches as after her Freddie Gray announcement where she encourages them, saying, “our time is now”.

But back when Mosby was 20, she took more of a dim view of looters and property destroyers, when a man broke into her college apartment, occupying it while she was away and causing damages. She went on ‘Judge Judy’ to mediate the dispute and won, as you can see in the video above.

NY Democrats Attempting To Play ‘Bedroom Police’, Criminalize Normal Sexual Interactions On Campus…

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 1.15.44 PM

Yet, they accuse Republicans of wanting to control you…

Via NY Post:

Emma Sulkowicz graduated from Columbia College last week, lugging her mattress under one arm as she reached for her degree with the other.

Some classmates cheered Sulkowicz — the self-proclaimed poster woman for the fight against sexual assault — for carrying around the mattress on which she was allegedly raped.

Never mind that her charges against a male classmate couldn’t stick, even under Columbia’s kangaroo-court standards. New York’s Democrats are embracing Sulkowicz and her cause.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pushing for passage of what he calls “the toughest law in the nation” against campus sexual violence.

It would make campuses in New York a hostile environment for young men. One misstep and they could find themselves accused of “sexual assault,” denied a fair hearing, expelled and unemployable.

The law would apply at all private colleges in the state, extending regulations that Cuomo has already imposed on the state university system.
Everyone should want to prevent rape. But Cuomo’s bill criminalizes normal sexual interactions.

The bill requires “affirmative consent” at each step of the way when two students have sexual contact. Amazingly, that means punishing students who fail to ask “May I unbutton your blouse?” and “May I kiss you?” and wait for the answer. On May 20, Cuomo said there has to be “clear, unambiguous and voluntary agreement” before any “specific sexual activity.”

Obama: “Best Climate Scientists” Link Hurricanes To Climate Change

fema

Except they don’t.

Via The Hill:

President Obama said Thursday the link between more extreme weather and climate change is undeniable and that the world’s best scientists have made a conclusive connection.

Rising sea levels are another consequence of climate change and can make extreme weather even worse, Obama said at the National Hurricane Center following a tour.

“The best climate scientists in the world are telling us that extreme weather events like hurricanes are likely to become more powerful. When you combine stronger storms with rising seas, that’s a recipe for more devastating floods,” he said.

Obama’s remarks came during a visit to the center, whose meterologists are predicting a “below-normal” Atlantic Ocean hurricane season, with three to six storms likely.

New York Times Passed On Obamacare Architect Jonathan Gruber Bombshell…

NYT

Hmm, I wonder why?

Via Washington Examiner:

The New York Times had first shot in 2014 at the video of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber mocking the “stupidity of the American voter,” but took a pass.

Though the Times eventually followed up on reports of the MIT economist’s now-infamous remarks on the passage of the Affordable Care Act, it did so only after they had generated a national scandal.

Times’ reporter Robert Pear was the “first real journalist” that tipster Rich Weinstein contacted with the newly unearthed footage, he told the Washington Examiner.

Weinstein met Pear at a conference in Washington, D.C., when he was trying to find a reporter who he could tip off to a separate Obamacare issue involving contracts between the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and CGI Federal, the company that was brought on to build healthcare.gov.

“Nobody would listen to me,” Weinstein said, explaining that his earlier attempts to connect with media had been mostly unsuccessful. “So I was trying to contact journalists directly because I had this stuff.”

Having met Pear on Oct. 30 at a Cato Institute conference, titled “Pruitt, Halbig, King & Indiana: Is Obamacare Once Again Headed to the Supreme Court,” he followed up on the contact.

“I sent [Pear] an email telling him he should look at these videos I found,” he said, noting that he discovered the footage of Gruber’s now-infamous “stupidity” remarks on Nov. 2.

Weinstein showed the Examiner an email to Pear dated Nov. 9 including a link to the Gruber video and reading, “Thought you’d be interested in this.”

Pear, who had just two days earlier reported on separate Gruber comments regarding state health care exchanges, responded to the email, asking, “would you happen to the know the time and place of the panel discussion?”

Weinstein provided details of the 2013 health care event and the Times reporter answered with a simple, “thank you.”

That was the end of their communication, Weinstein said. Pear never followed up on their conversation and he never wrote about the tip.

Fortunately for the public record, conservative activist group American Commitment found the footage that Weinstein had circulated on social media and uploaded it to YouTube Nov. 7. The Daily Signal found it there and published it Nov. 9 with an article titled “Caught on Camera: Obamacare Architect Admits Deceiving Americans to Pass Law.”

MSNBC, HuffPo, Other Media Link Texas Floods To Climate Change…

chris-matthews

Nobody could see this coming from a mile away…

Via Newsbusters:

Despite media denials that “specific weather events” can be linked to overall climate patterns, that is exactly what several major news outlets have done in the wake of deadly floods in Texas.

MSNBC, Huffington Post, The Dallas Morning News and other media have suggested global warming played a role in the torrential rain and consequent, deadly flooding in Texas during Memorial Day weekend. A year earlier many were blaming Texas’ drought on global warming.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews made this link during Hardball With Chris Matthews May 26. He cited the National Climate Assessment, claiming that “climate change contributes to harsh climate conditions like the flooding in Texas and drought in California happening right now.”

He failed to admit that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released a report in December 2014 that said the opposite regarding global warming and droughts in California. The report instead attributed the drought primarily to a La Nina weather pattern.

Matthews also interviewed Columbia University Earth Institute Director Jeffrey Sachs, a man-made global warming alarmist. He said that “underlying warming of the sea surface and the land” led to “tragedies” like the flooding in Texas.

Sachs is a long-time crony of left-wing billionaire George Soros. His “Millennium Village Project” received $50 million from Soros in 2008. Soros pledged in 2011 to contribute an additional $27 million during the next five years.
