Via Daily Mail:

Chelsea Clinton demanded $65,000 to make a 10-minute speech at a public university after they balked at her mother’s appearance fee, it has been revealed.

The University of Missouri at Kansas City was looking for a celebrity to open their women’s hall of fame in February 2014.
Their initial choice was former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

But when they were told how much it would cost – $275,000 – they turned it down and went to what they thought was the next best thing.

A huge fault in the Earth’s crust near Los Angeles is leaking helium, researchers have found.

They say the unexpected find sheds new light on the Newport-Inglewood Fault Zone in the Los Angeles Basin.

It reveals the fault is far deeper than previously thought, and a quake would be far more devastating.

It follows a report from the U.S. Geological Survey has warned the risk of ‘the big one’ hitting California has increased dramatically.

Supporters Call For Help For Pakistani Christian Woman Facing Sentence Of Death For Drinking From Cup

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 9.42.23 AM

Talk about equality. For being a Christian and drinking from a cup.

Via Fox News:

A Pakistani Christian woman facing death for drinking water out of the same vessel used by her Muslim co-workers is in such poor health her supporters fear she won’t make it to her date with the executioner.

Aasiya Noreen, a wife and mother of five better known as Asia Bibi, was sentenced in 2010 to be hanged for apostasy. The grim verdict was handed down after her co-workers charged she had insulted Prophet Mohammed when she was told she could not share the water vessel. Now 50, Bibi is suffering from numerous health problems, including intestinal bleeding, according to Global Dispatch, which cited Bibi’s family in reporting the woman is “so weak she could hardly walk.”

“She is an exemplar of a gross miscarriage of injustice rooted in Pakistan’s extremely unfair blasphemy laws and of how this law can victimize someone who should not be inside the criminal justice system whatsoever,” said Phelim Kine, deputy director of Human Rights Watch’s Asia Division.

(CNSNews.com) – Amazon.com joined other American companies like eBay and Wal-Mart last week in banning the sale of the Confederate flag, but the online retail giant has apparently not banned items associated with foreign terrorist groups.

Flags of Hamas and Hezbollah, and armed “Taliban” action figures are among the offerings available with a few clicks of a mouse.

Amazon’s decision to remove merchandise featuring the Confederate flag, reported by Reuters and others last week, came in the wake of the shooting of nine people in a church in Charleston, S.C. by a white gunman who photographed himself draped in the flag.

Jimmy Carter Says America “The Most Warlike Nation On Earth”

The now second-worst president in history (thanks, Barack!) also wants America to voluntarily handover its “unquestioned domination” of the world.

Via Free Beacon:

Former President Jimmy Carter referred to the United States as the most “warlike country on Earth” last week during an interview with the nonprofit Aspen Institute.

“I think the American superpower goal should be to the champion of peace, and to be the champion of human rights, and to be the champion of the environment and to be the most generous nation on Earth,” he said. “Those are the elements that I hope eventually the United States will set as goals. We are the most warlike country on Earth. We are laggard in addressing the problem of global warming, for instance, and we are now violating about ten of the 30 paragraphs in the universal declaration of human rights, so I think this is something we should look upon as our duties for the future.”

University Of Wisonsin Declares Term “America Is A Melting Pot” A Racial Microaggression….

facepalm

Joining their fellow lib academics at the University of California.

Via College Fix:

University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point officials have advised faculty that the term “America is a melting pot” is a racial microaggression.

The common phrase was among a list of examples of so-called racial microaggressions used “as a discussion item for some new faculty and staff training over the past few years,” a campus official told The College Fix in an email.

Other phrases on the list included: “You are a credit to your race,” “where are you from,” “there is only one race, the human race,” “I believe the most qualified person should get the job” and “everyone can succeed in this society if they work hard enough.”

The list is very similar to a list of microaggressions distributed by University of California system administrators in voluntary faculty trainings held over the last school year. That list suggested similar phrases to the ones distributed by the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

Flashback 2004: Obama, “I’m Not A Supporter Of Gay Marriage”

Not-so-much these days for Captain Fabulous.

(CNSNews.com) – During his U.S. Senate campaign in 2004, Barack Obama was asked by a local Illinois reporter about his stand on same-sex marriage.

Candidate Obama said he did not support it and that the institution of marriage has “religious roots” and “strong tradition” and as such is important to Americans.

“I have been very clear on this,” Obama told a television reporter at a Springfield, Ill., campaign event. “I have said I am not a supporter of gay marriage.

Obama Admin To Allow Transgender Men To Live With Real Women In Immigration Detention Facilities…

immigrants

Looks like that heckler got his way.

Via Fusion:

U.S. immigration officials on Monday announced transgender detainees will for the first time be able to be housed in detention facilities that match their gender identity.

The update is part of an 18-page guide unveiled today that details how U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers and contractors should interact with transgender immigrants in custody.

“We believe this guidance is the most comprehensive for transgender individuals in any custodial entity,” Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, the deputy assistant director for custody programs for ICE, told Fusion in a telephone interview Monday.

The announcement comes less than a week after an undocumented transgender woman named Jennicet Gutiérrez interrupted President Obama’s speech at a White House pride event.

“President Obama, release all LGBTQ immigrants from detention,” Gutiérrez told the president.

Also last week 35 members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson urging him to end the detention of LGBT undocumented immigrants.”

United Church Of Christ Passes Resolution Condemning Redskins “Demeaning” Name…

Redskins

No bigger issues to worry about?

(HuffPo) – Add the United Church of Christ to the list of organizations that want the District of Columbia’s professional football team to drop its controversial name. The church approved a resolution Monday calling on the team to change its name and asking its members to boycott the Washington team’s games and merchandise until it stops using the word “Redskins.”

“The use of the term ‘Redskins’ for the team mascot and nickname of the Washington football team is offensive and causes direct harmful effects to the public health and well-being of the Native American population,” Rev. Linda Jaramillo said in a statement announcing the decision.

“This movement has been coming for a long time,” Jaramillo, a UCC national officer, told The Huffington Post.

The “heartfelt, emotional” vote at the biennial meeting of the UCC’s national decision-making body in Cleveland followed the testimony of a Native American member who was “deeply troubled by the demeaning caricatures of her brothers and sisters,” Jaramillo said. Pointing to the church’s past activism in the civil rights movement and other social justice causes, Jaramillo said fighting discrimination “is in our DNA,” and that watching the team make money off of a stereotype the church sees as degrading is “more than we can bear.”

The UCC, which has more than a million members across the United States, first passed a resolution condemning Native American mascots at all levels of sports in 1991.

Last year, the UCC’s Central Atlantic Conference, which includes member churches in D.C., approved a resolution targeting the city’s NFL team, starting a conversation that culminated in Monday’s vote by the national leadership body.

Hillary Hires Black Outreach Coordinator, Rachel Dolezal Unavailable For Comment…

Via Washington Examiner:

Hillary Clinton has hired new black coalitions director LaDavia Drane, to conduct research on black voters for her 2016 presidential campaign.

Drane will serve as the primary liaison between the campaign and the African-American community nationwide, according to Buzzfeed News. Drane will join Clinton’s national political team, working alongside political director Amanda Renteria, deputy national director Brynne Craig and director of state campaigns and political engagement Marlon Marshall.

Barack Obama not only won overwhelming majorities among black and Hispanic voters in 2008 and 2012, he was able to turn out minorities in record numbers. Clinton is working to recreate this diverse coalition in 2016, after doing poorly among black voters during the 2008 Democratic primaries.

OPM Shuts Down Background Check Database Over Flaw…

A flaw and not a glitch. Received my snail mail notification that my information was hacked and how to protect myself from further identity theft. Update to this story.

opm1.1

WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal personnel agency whose records were plundered by hackers linked to China announced on Monday the temporary shutdown of a massive database used to update and store background investigation records after newly discovering a flaw that left the system vulnerable to additional breaches.

There is no evidence the vulnerability has been exploited by hackers, agency spokesman Samuel Schumach said in a statement, adding that the Office of Personnel Management took the step protectively. He said the system could be shut down for four to six weeks.

Hackers suspected of working for the Chinese government are believed to have stolen records for as many as 18 million current and former federal employees and contractors last year. Detailed background investigations for security clearances of military and intelligence agency employees were among the documents taken.

The shutdown announced Monday is expected to hamper agencies’ ability to initiate investigations for new employees and contractors, as well as renewal investigations for security clearances, Schumach said.

But, he added, the federal government will still be able to hire, and in some cases grant clearances on an interim basis.

The database is known as e-QIP, short for Electronic Questionnaires for Investigations Processing.

Officer ‘Pays It Forward’ With Gift For Little Girl Running Lemonade Stand

Screen Shot 2015-06-29 at 9.43.45 PM

Via Today:

A 9-year-old Ohio girl used a lemonade stand this week to help her raise money to buy an electronic tablet to help with schoolwork — and maybe play a few video games. She failed to raise enough money to meet her goal, but she got the device anyway, thanks to a thirsty police officer.

Rising fourth grader Gabrielle Garcar was tending to her lemonade stand Monday at her grandmother’s condo building when Zak Ropos stopped by for a cup. When the Lake County sheriff’s deputy learned what the girl planned to do with the money she raised, he pulled her mother aside.

“I told her, ‘I have an old iPad at home. I’ll go home and see what I can do with it,'” he told TODAY.com. But once home, Ropos realized the device no longer worked, so he headed to Best Buy and purchased a brand-new electronic tablet.

“She’s 9 years old and she’s willing to work for what she wants, and I found that very admirable of her,” said Ropos, 22. “I knew her lemonade stand wasn’t probably going to bring in enough money for a tablet, but seeing that she was willing to work for what she wanted, I was willing to help her. People have helped me out in my life, so it was kind of like a pay-it-forward type thing.”

Another Weekend Block Party Shooting In Detroit, Teens Wounded…

Social Justice Warriors avoiding Detroit. Last weekend had 11 shot and one killed at a block party.

Via Detroit News

After a second bloody weekend that saw multiple shooting deaths and injuries, including a 14-year-old boy at a large party, Detroit’s police chief vowed to step up enforcement.

Shootings at parties where there have been more than 200 people have “become an increasing concern for us,” Chief James Craig said during a press conference at Public Safety Headquarters downtown.

“We’re working on getting intelligence as to why it happened.”

Five people were shot at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday at a gathering at a car wash at Gratiot and Whithorn. That followed a quadruple shooting at about 11 p.m. Saturday during a party near an apartment complex at Conner and Shoemaker.

The victims of both incidents were expected to recover, Craig said.

On June 20, 11 were shot at a block party on a basketball court at Webb and Dexter. A 19-year-old was killed.

Police have not received much cooperation from citizens in any of the three shootings, and no arrests have been made, Craig said.

“It’s kind of a recent anomaly that we had three separate large-scale events and haven’t gotten any information,” he said.[…]

Craig said he will work with city officials to see if revamping the city ordinances governing block parties might help stem the violence, but he said that’s not a priority.

“The ordinances do work,” he said. “We have to be aware that there’s going to be a block party. We encourage parties. We want neighbors to enjoy their neighborhoods. But the police department needs to be aware of it, because we do monitor those to make sure they’re safe events.

Anyone who wants to hold a block party must inform the police precinct and get a permit. However, there are also large parties that take place without permits, and Craig said he doesn’t want officers breaking those up if they’re peaceful.

“This is a festive time of the year, and we’re not going to be going through neighborhoods shutting down parties. That’s just not feasible,” he said. “Should we know there are parties going on? Absolutely, if for no other reason than to let the folks who are enjoying the festive time of the year know that we’re there.”

Video: Hillary’s Cribs Shock Young People

Nothing wrong with being rich, but there is something wrong when you claim to be ‘dead broke’, sanctimoniously tout ‘income inequality’ and claim to be for everyday Americans while living it up like a rock star.

Via Campus Reform:

Hillary Clinton has vowed to be a champion for “everyday Americans.”

The former Secretary of State—who once described herself and husband Bill Clinton as “dead broke”—kicked off her campaign on June 13 and in her 45-minute speech on New York City’s Roosevelt Island, Clinton delivered a message similar to her initial presidential announcement.

“Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times,” Clinton said in the video announcement on April 12. “But the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top.”

So what do Millennials think of a candidate who criticizes the “1 percent,” but simultaneously owns multi-million dollar properties in Washington, D.C. and New York and spends her summers in the Hamptons?

Park Service Removes Confederate Flags From Fort Sumter…

Fort Sumter

The battle is nearing.

Via WISTV

The Confederate flag is no longer flying over Fort Sumter.

The National Park Service said the flag, along with other historic replicas, was taken down last week in the wake of the Charleston church shooting when Gov. Nikki Haley ordered the American flag lowered to half-staff.

Officials with Fort Sumter say the flag will not be going back up.

They also say they have decided to remove Confederate flag items from the Fort’s gift shop.

The Fort Sumter National Monument Park also includes Fort Moultrie and the Charles Pinckney National historic site.

Confederate forces fired on the Union-held fort on April 12, 1861, the moment that served as the start of the American Civil War. Fort Sumter surrendered 34 hours after the first shots, according to the National Park Service.
