Mister De Blasio’s neighborhood…

Much as we chastised Nanny Bloomberg, he, and before him Rudy Giuliani, believed in keeping a check on ‘quality of life’ crimes. Now, they are exploding once again, as they did under David Dinkins.

Via NY Post:

The glass facade of Cooper Union’s $111 million academic building offers a remarkable view — of a back alley packed with vagrants.
“I have seen drug deals, public urination, defecation, masturbation in broad daylight in the Taras Shevchenko alley,” a Cooper Union faculty member told The Post.

“It’s a place where many homeless congregate to sleep — right in front of a church and between a high school and a college,” the faculty member added.

Students, visitors to the East Village building’s multiple art galleries and even small kids who attend Preschool of the Arts housed at Cooper Union are greeted daily by a motley crew of drifters who bunk down on the pavement along Taras Shevchenko Place from about sunset through the morning rush hour.

Mexican National Kills Good Samaritans Who Stopped To Help Him In Montana

FBI also said ‘he didn’t happen to be there by happenstance’.

Via Fox News:

An 18-year-old man executed a Native American couple who stopped to help him on a Montana roadside Wednesday because their daughter “laughed” at him, an FBI agent said in court Thursday.

Jason Shane, 51, and Tana Shane, 47, died Wednesday following the shooting on an Indian reservation in the small town of Pryor, and their daughter, 26-year-old Jorah Shane, was shot in the back when she tried to run away, the woman’s aunt, Ada Shane, told The Associated Press. Jesus Deniz, also known as Jesus Deniz Mendoza, of Worland, Wyo., told federal investigators he shot the three, who had stopped to help him because Jorah Shane laughed at him.

“Deniz told the interviewing agents that he shot the victims because he was getting tired of waiting around, and because the daughter laughed at him,” a court document submitted by federal authorities said. The FBI and Bureau of Indian Affairs are handling the investigation because the murders occurred on an Indian reservation and the victims were members of the Crow tribe.

UCLA Student: Criticism Of My Column Claiming Free Tampons Key To Gender Equality Was Sexist…

Update to this story

Via Campus Reform:

UCLA opinion columnist Zoey Freedman has spoken out after her controversialDaily Bruin article, “Free tampons would slow flow of gender inequality,” accusing her critics of sexism.

In the original article, Freeman argued that the federal government ought to require health insurers to cover tampons because doing so would be “only fair, since health insurance is supposed to cover the major aspects of a person’s health,” and that “most men have no problem getting covered for pills that will help them get a boner.”

The reaction to her proposal, Freedman says, seems to show “that many men have an interest in defining gender inequality.”

In her new blog post, “Responses to controversial post characterize gender inequality,” Freedman claims that she was “blown away by the number of men who took the time out of their day to voice their opinions on this subject.”

She says that she was told to drop out of school, to marry so a man could take care of her, and called degrading names—all of which, she says, prove her point, and are part of “an experience unique to women.” Freedman also compares the criticism she received to criticism Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, and Justice Sotomayor have faced as “outspoken women.”

She believes that women are attacked on their weight, personality, and family, and that the comments and critiques of her article “didn’t focus their criticism on my opinion but rather, made it clear that I was just wrong and outright idiotic because of who I am innately: a woman.”

Poll: Just 30% Say They Would Vote For Obama If He Could Run For A Third Term…

Barack Obama

Heartbreaking.

Via Rasmussen:

In a recent speech criticizing African political leaders who stay too long in office, President Obama said he could win a third term if he ran for president again but acknowledged that U.S. law does not allow it. Could Obama win again?

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 30% of Likely U.S. Voters say they would vote for the president if he ran for a third term. Sixty-three percent (63%) would not. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Most Democrats (57%) would vote to give Obama a third term. Ninety-three percent (93%) of Republicans, 68% of voters not affiliated with either major party – and 32% of Democrats – would not.

FLASHBACK: Hillary Clinton Gushes Over Planned Parenthood’s Racist Founder: “‘I Admire Margaret Sanger Enormously, Her Courage, Her Vision”…

hillary-scared

Nothing makes libs squirm worse than bringing up this classic.

Via MRC:

During a March 27, 2009 speech accepting the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood, Clinton talked about being in awe of the racist eugenicist:

Now, I have to tell you that it was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision. Another of my great friends, Ellen Chesler, is here, who wrote a magnificent biography of Margaret Sanger called Woman of Valor. And when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.

And there are a lot of lessons that we can learn from her life and from the cause she launched and fought for and sacrificed so bravely. One in particular, though, has always stood out for me almost a hundred years later. It’s the lesson that women’s empowerment is always, always about more than bettering the lives of individual women. It is part of a movement. It’s about economic and political progress for all women and girls. It’s about making sure that every woman and girl everywhere has the opportunities that she deserves to fulfill her potential, a potential as a mother, as a worker, as a human being.

Reason Planned Parenthood Trying To Suppress Video? Evidence Of Buyers Getting ‘Fully Intact Babies’

Unbelievably evil.

“In a meeting with their top leadership, they admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.”

Obama Throws The Base A Bone, Will Offer Federal Student Aid To Prisoners

PRISON-ONE

Groan…

WASHINGTON (AP) — Some federal and state prisoners could begin receiving federal student aid to take college courses — while still behind bars — as early as the 2016-2017 school year.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Attorney General Loretta Lynch are announcing the pilot Pell grant program during a visit to the Maryland Correctional Institution in Jessup, Maryland.

The Education Department says the program would be open to prisoners eligible for release — preferably within five years.

The pilot program was expected to last three to five years. The department says it has no estimate on how many prisoners would participate or how much the program would cost.

Pell grants are for low-income people and do not have to be repaid.

Congress excluded federal and state prisoners from Pell grants in 1994.

NAACP Demands Utah Change Name Of Canyon Named After Black Cowboy

negro_bill_sign_0

Focusing on the tough issues

WASHINGTON (AP) — The renewed national scrutiny of the Confederate flag has officials again considering changing the name of Utah’s Negro Bill Canyon, though the title that some find offensive is a point of historical pride for others.

Grand County Councilwoman Mary McGann said the name of the picturesque canyon in southern Utah is outdated at best.

“We should evolve,” she said Wednesday.

She’s planning to ask the council to recommend a name change to the U.S. Board of Geographic Names as soon as Aug. 4.

The Moab canyon is named for William Granstaff, a black cowboy who ran cattle there in the 1870s. Landmarks named for white historical figures aren’t generally prefaced by race, McGann said, and the canyon should bear his last name instead.

But Jeanetta Williams, president of the Salt Lake City chapter of the NAACP, says the name isn’t offensive. She’s drumming up support to keep the name that makes it clear the canyon is named for a black historical figure.

“We don’t want to lose the history,” she said. She’d like to see the council tackle other issues facing black residents instead, like housing discrimination. Though her group supported changing the name from a more derogatory word decades ago, they’ve opposed other efforts over the years to make a wholesale revision.

One of those pushes was led by Moab resident Louis Williams. His research shows William Granstaff never went by Bill, and he’s dug up history that shows his last name was actually spelled with a “d” after the “n.” The current name doesn’t honor the pioneer’s story, he said, and it should be renamed as Grandstaff Canyon.

Friday in Fort Lauderdale, Florida while speakings at the National Urban League Conference Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed political operatives were trying to prevent African-Americans from voting.

Clinton said, “A lot of people don’t realize that our schools are more segregated today than they were in 1968. Or even that African-Americans are sentenced to longer prison terms than white people for the same crimes. Or that political operatives are trying every trick in the book to prevent African-Americans from voting.”

70 ‘Youths’ ‘Mob And Rob’ Circle K In Akron

Obama’s sons and daughters.

Via Smoking Gun:

Ohio cops are investigating the ransacking of a Circle K store that was overrun early Saturday morning by up to 70 juveniles.

According to Akron police, the suspects “entered the gas station and started to destroy and steal property” during the so-called mob and rob attack.

As seen above, a couple who stopped at the Circle K for gas shot video of the juveniles fleeing the store with stolen merchandise. A woman in the car called 911 and reported that the suspects were “running around in the parking lot like wild children.”

An Akron Police Department report–which classified the incident as vandalism–noted that the juveniles “entered business to destroy property” and that “misc merchandise damaged and stolen.”

A store manager estimated that the suspects stole several hundred dollars worth of items. It is unclear how much damage the Circle K suffered during the 10-minute rampage.

MSNBC Cancels Three Shows As Part Of Purge To Eliminate ‘Opinion’ Shows…

Feel good story of the week!

Via Breitbart:

MSNBC is expected to announce big lineup changes coming to the network, as first reported last week. In an attempt to climb out of its disastrous ratings slump, the network is canceling three liberal programs and replacing them with straight news and breaking news coverage.

The coming line up change was first reported last week by Mediaite. Shows being canceled outright include The Cycle, a multiple-host show similar to Fox’s The Five, Now with Alex Wagner, and The Ed Show. Politico reports that MSNBC President Phil Griffin is expected to make the formal announcement as soon as Thursday.

Not all of the hosts of the three canceled shows are leaving. Alex Wagner is expected to remain with the network as is Ari Melber, one of the co-hosts of The Cycle. However, TV Newser reports that Ed Schultz, Abby Huntsman, Toure, and Krystal Ball are “out.”

‘Get Out White Boy!’ White Ex-DC Official Claims He Was Fired Over Race

He’s obviously racist…

WASHINGTON – A former District of Columbia official brought in to help straighten out mismanagement at the Department of Public Works is suing the city, claiming he was harassed, intimidated and then fired for being white.

The former city worker says he was repeatedly called “cracker” and “white boy” by black members of the department while in the presence of other managers. On his last day on the job as a deputy fleet administrator, Christopher Lyons said he found a sign on his door that said, “Get Out White Boy!”

Lyons is suing the city for wrongful termination, claiming he was the victim of racial discrimination. He also believes he was targeted because he uncovered financial flaws and reported cover-ups. He’s suing his former employers for back pay and then some.

“I am surprised [the racial discrimination] happened at this level of government,” his lawyer Morris Fischer told FoxNews.com. “We’re all Americans. We all have to treat each other the same, and we have to put aside whatever differences we have.”

Continuing the effort on the now-cancelled MSNBC’s Now to defend Planned Parenthood from its video scandal, National Organization for Women President Terry O’Neill joined host Alex Wagner on Thursday to gush over how the “beloved” provider of abortions and alleged seller of body parts from aborted babies “has nothing to apologize for” and mocked female GOP senators who want to defund the taxpayer-funded group.

Gleefully surmising that Republican women in Congress who are leading the funding effort “are not going to hold their seats much longer, quite frankly,” O’Neill charged that “[t]he Republican leadership has an unfortunate history of chewing up women and spitting them out” in that “[t]hey use them and as long as they’re useful, they use them sort of as cover for their losing the women’s vote.”

Florida County Enrages The NAACP: Removes Confederate Battle Flag, Replaces It With Different Version Of Confederate Flag

55b93d951400002e002e150e

Masterful trolling.

Via HuffPo:

In the wake of the reignited controversy over the Confederate battle flag, Walton County, Florida, voted Tuesday to remove the flag from the county courthouse grounds — only to replace it with a different Confederate flag.

“It’s perplexing how this is perceived as any compromise,” Daniel Uhlfelder, a key force in the local movement to have the flag taken down, told The Huffington Post.

He said he’s been working with community leaders and organizations like the NAACP to get the flag removed since 2002. After South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called for the battle flag’s removal from South Carolina Capitol grounds, Uhlfelder and others pressured their county officials to follow suit.

The battle flag used by the Army of Northern Virginia has flown on the lawn of the Walton County Courthouse in DeFuniak Springs since 1964 — the year President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The flag was positioned next to a Civil War monument. County commissioners voted 4-0 to replace that flag with the traditional “stars and bars” that was the first official flag of the Confederate States of America.
