This Iowa Poll Shows Just How Amazing Donald Trump’s Rise Has Been

Screen Shot 2015-08-30 at 11.02.06 AM

And this is why he stupefies them.

Via WaPo:

Donald Trump leads the Republican 2016 field in a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics of Iowa voters. But that’s not the real story.

The real story is contained deeper in the poll. In May, when the Register last polled, 27 percent of likely Iowa GOP caucus-goers viewed Trump favorably while 63 percent regarded him unfavorably. In the new poll, which was released Saturday night, Trump’s favorable number is at 61 percent and his unfavorable at 35 percent.

Um, WHAT?

Let me put it another way: W-H-A-T???

Numbers just don’t reverse themselves like that in the space of a few months (or ever). Especially when the politician in question is totally known by the electorate. Once you are both totally known and broadly disliked — as Trump was in May both in Iowa and everywhere else — you are doomed. One hundred times out of one hundred.

Air Force Mechanic Is Sucker Punched, Has Jaw Broken After Happening Into Middle Of Black Lives Matter Protest

Screen Shot 2015-08-30 at 10.42.22 AM

Peaceful protesters…

Via IJR:

What started out as a fun night for one Air Force mechanic attending a Saturday night pre-season football game between the Miami Dolphins and the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium turned violent afterwards in the middle of a nearby ‘Black Lives Matter’ protest. His dad is seeking answers:

Matthew Whitehurst is a 23 year old Air Force jet engine mechanic who has served in the Middle East, Japan, and South Korea. But, it’s an assault in Uptown Charlotte that could keep him from a special deployment to Europe next month.

“I’m angry and I want whoever did this to pay for what they did,” Matthew’s father, Todd Whitehurst, told WBTV.

[…]

Matthew told his father the three walked by the Transit Center just as protesters against the Kerrick Mistrial got to the Transit Center and the EpiCenter. He said they were assaulted – he was sucker punched from behind. The blow fractured his jaw.

This Is Courage: Hundreds Of Residents Hold Street Protest Against ISIS In Rutbah, A City Under Their Control

Screen Shot 2015-08-30 at 10.10.55 AM

BAGHDAD – Islamic State militants moved on Saturday to stamp out dissent in a remote western Iraqi town, detaining at least 70 and tying dozens of residents, including tribal leaders, to streetlight poles as a punishment, security officials said.

The crackdown followed a rare street demonstration on Saturday to protest the extremist group’s execution of a local resident, they said. The protest by hundreds of residents in Rutbah, in Anbar province, was triggered by the execution earlier on Saturday of Munir al-Kobeisi, a civil servant, for killing an IS member. The killing was part of a long-running blood feud between two local clans.

Eid Amash, a spokesman for Anbar’s provincial government, confirmed al-Kobeisi’s execution and the subsequent protest.

Relying on sketchy information from Rutbah, in Iraq’s far west near the Jordanian border, the officials said they didn’t know the whereabouts of the detained residents. The militants, they said, tied two residents to each light pole and that the town was gripped by fears that the group would carry out mass executions.

Jeb Attempts To Refute Trump Calling Him The ‘Low Energy’ Candidate: I Campaign ‘With Joy In My Heart’

Screen Shot 2015-08-30 at 9.56.11 AM

Hahahahahahahaha.

Via Breitbart:

Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush on Saturday rebutted Donald Trump’s relentless mocking of him as a “low-energy” candidate, telling congregants of a Westhampton Beach synagogue of 16-hour campaign days crisscrossing the country.

“If you’ve been following the campaign, there’s a candidate that says that some candidates are idiots and some candidates are this and some candidates are that,” Bush said at the Hampton Synagogue. “I’ve been apparently the candidate that has low energy. So I’ll just give you a little taste of the low-energy candidate’s life this week.”

Bush recited a long list of cities he’s visited in the past six days, boasted of a “physical therapy workout” Friday with former Navy SEALs and said he would be jetting to North Carolina after his speech.

“The low-energy candidate this week has only been six days, 16 hours a day, campaigning with joy in my heart,” the former Florida governor said.

Leftist Protester Muslim Transgender Woman Barred From Tempe Mosque Until She Dresses As Man Or Can Prove She’s A Woman

/Popcorn…

Via Phoenix Sun Times:

Leaders of a Tempe mosque have decided that if congregant Sumayyah Dawud wants to continue attending prayers and other community functions at the Islamic Community Center, she must either dress and pray as a man or provide medical documentation that she is anatomically female.

Though Dawud was born male, she has been legally female since 2011 — her Arizona driver’s license and U.S. passport list her as such. She converted to Islam in 2013 and, until recently, says no one has raised any questions about her identity.

But earlier this summer, a handful of her fellow community members went to the ICC board of directors with concerns that she was not actually female and said having her pray with them in the women’s section made them uncomfortable.

(Dawud is not sure exactly what prompted these people to approach the board, but she suspects it has something to do with her increasingly public image as a left-wing activist and the feeling among many in the Muslim community that protesting is not “the Islamic way of doing things.”)

Dawud has many protesting videos here.

45 Murders In 31 Days: Baltimore’s Deadliest Month

Screen Shot 2015-08-30 at 8.30.31 AM

This is what ‘freedom to destroy’ has wrought. But ‘Black Lives Matter’ only if killed by police.

Via Baltimore Sun:

Taylor Street and Delvin Trusty began dating in high school after he sent her a message on social media. They attended prom together, and three years later were expecting their first child.

When she gave birth this month, she was surrounded with support, including Trusty’s parents and brother, and her mother, sister and cousin — but not Trusty.

Their daughter, a 9-pound, 11-ounce girl named Avah, was born one month to the day that Trusty was gunned down in Northeast Baltimore. “I text his phone still,” Street said. “I send pictures of the baby.”

Trusty was among 45 people killed in Baltimore in July, a toll that matched the deadliest month in the city’s modern history and came amid a surge in violent crime surge that followed Freddie Gray’s death. The last time 45 people were killed in one month was in August 1972, when the city had about 275,000 more residents.

The deaths occurred across the city, overwhelmingly in historically impoverished neighborhoods. All but one of the victims were male, all but two of them black. Many had serious criminal records. The victims also included a 5-month-old boy and a 53-year-old grandmother, a teen stabbed to death in a dispute over a cell phone and a carryout deliveryman killed in a robbery.

Dem Presidential Candidate: More Immigration Means More Democratic Votes

Well, someone finally admitted the truth.

Via Daily Caller:

Democratic presidential candidate Lincoln Chafee said Friday that support for increased immigration will result in more votes for the Democratic Party.

“We’re right on immigration,” said the former Rhode Island governor and senator, during the Democratic National Committee’s summer meeting in Minneapolis.

“The fastest growing voting bloc in the country,” Chaffee added. “Of course we want that people to be treated with respect and to vote Democratic.”

Chafee’s statement undermines Democrats’ claim that they support liberal immigration policies for humanitarian reasons, and bolsters a line of attack from anti-immigration advocates who accuse Democrats of political sabotage.

Chafee is a former Republican who switched parties in 2013.

Sanders Closing In On Hillary: “It’s Like 2008 All Over Again”

Popcorn!

Via Politico:

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is rapidly closing the gap with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but she still maintains a solid lead in Iowa’s Democratic caucuses, according to a poll released Saturday.

Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner and establishment favorite, is drawing 37 percent of the vote. Sanders earns 30 percent of the vote. Vice President Joe Biden, who is still wavering on making a run, earns 14 percent. This is the first time Clinton has fallen short of a majority in the Iowa poll, conducted by pollster Ann Selzer forthe Des Moines Registerand Bloomberg, this year.

“This feels like 2008 all over again,” Selzer told the paper, referring to then-Sen. Barack Obama’s remarkable victory over Clinton in the caucuses then. In January, Clinton led Sanders by more than 50 percentage points and he drew just 5 percent of the vote.

Video: MSM Ignores Protest Against Margaret Sanger Bust At Smithsonian

Their response? Yes, she said evil racist and genocidal things, but hey, she was for abortion, so it’s all good.

Via Newsbusters:

Not even in the wake of the sickening Planned Parenthood videos will the broadcast networks dare to criticize Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.

During their news shows, ABC, NBC and CBS ignored a press conference against Margaret Sanger held in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. During the event, black pastors and other pro-life leaders demanded the removal of a Margaret Sanger bust – a bust they called “revisionist propaganda” – from a Struggle for Justice exhibit inside the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. Likewise, the networks censored tens of thousands of Americans protesting Planned Parenthood last weekend.

Organized by STAND and ForAmerica, the press conference concluded when speakers met with the art gallery’s head of communications, Bethany Bentley, and handed her their petition with more than 14,000 signatures against the bust.

Ambassador Says Pope Will Urge The U.S. To ‘Open The Doors’ To Immigrants

Screen Shot 2015-08-29 at 7.32.24 PM

Social doctrine is specifically NOT the main mission of the Church, Father Joe Biden. Jesus specifically rejected ‘social justice movements’, for the individual conversion of souls.

Via Breitbart:

The U.S. ambassador to the Vatican said that during Pope Francis’ visit to the United States next month, he expects the Pope will urge the U.S. to embrace its history of welcoming immigrants.

Ambassador Kenneth Hackett said the Pope’s immigration message will be important as lead GOP presidential contender Donald Trump has called for a border fence between Mexico and the United States and the deportation of millions of illegal immigrants, the Associated Press reports.

“I think he’ll call us to continue to engage with it (the world), don’t throw any walls up around our nation, don’t revert to isolationism,” he said. “We are a nation of welcoming people, so that’s where I think he will put his attention.”

In addition to immigration, Hackett says Pope Francis will likely wish to discuss income inequality, family issues, and the environment while he is in the country.

AP also observes that President Barack Obama is about to fully pass the baton of “rock-star status” from himself to Pope Francis, who has “embraced many of the issues Obama has sought to advance, including global warming, poverty, and diplomacy with Iran and Cuba.”

Pope Francis has “transcended the Roman Catholic community,” AP states, adding that Obama has referred to him as a “transformative leader.”

Similarly, Vice President Joe Biden has said the pontiff’s visit to the United States next month will be an important event for all Americans, not only Catholics.

“Pope Francis has breathed new life into what I believe is the central mission of our faith: Catholic social doctrine,” Biden said in a statement. The vice president added the Pope “has become a moral rudder for the world on some of the most important issues of our time, from inequality to climate change.”

Black Lives Matter Disrupted Minnesota Fair For ‘Justice For Marcus Golden’, So Let’s See Who They Are Making A Martyr…

Early in the morning of Jan. 14, police had been called to the 200 block of University Avenue E. in St. Paul on a report of a man sending death threats via text message. They had been told that the suspect was known to carry a gun.

Officers drove behind an apartment building and found Golden’s SUV parked in a dark and “very secluded” area, police said at the time.

The two uniformed officers ordered Golden to step out of his vehicle.

He refused, and they fired their weapons when Golden drove at them at high speed, nearly striking [Officer] Doverspike.

Golden died at the scene.

Police have said that a loaded handgun was found within Golden’s reach after he was shot.

We asked the question recently, why do they seem never to advocate on behalf of innocents, like Jamyla Bolden, but only on behalf of criminals? It is because they see the criminal as an antagonist to the society they view as oppressive. So they see them as their natural allies and heroes, hence why they wear the shirt, ‘Assata Taught Me’, honoring cop killer Joanne Chesimard, aka Assata Shakur.

Suspect Arrested In Killing Of Deputy, DA: ‘What Happened Last Night Is An Attack On Fabric Of Society’…Update: Suspect Identified

You can say that again. The woman in the video above is District Attorney Devon Anderson. Black Lives Matter wants the race war, so the answer is not to give it to them and to expose them for what they are about, which is what we try to do here.

Via NBC:

Authorities have arrested a suspect in the “execution-style” shooting of a uniformed Texas sheriff’s deputy.

Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren H. Goforth, 47, was fatally shot Friday night after exiting a Houston gas station convenience store.

A suspect was arrested Saturday afternoon and will be charged, the sheriff’s office said. Authorities were scheduled to hold a 4:30 p.m. CT (5:30 p.m. ET) news conference on the arrest.

Earlier Saturday, officials said a person of interest was taken in for questioning, but was not arrested. The person was cooperating, they said, without providing additional details about his connection to the case.

In an emotional news conference Saturday afternoon, a visibly angry Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman told reporters that “dangerous rhetoric” against law enforcement had “gotten out of control.”

“We’ve heard black lives matter — all lives matter,” he said. “Well, cops’ lives matter, too.”

Update:

He has a prior criminal history, chief among the ones mentioned by Sheriff Hickman, disorderly conduct with firearm and resisting arrest. He had no prior contact that they are aware of with the Deputy he killed, the killing was ‘unprovoked’, “our assumption was he was a target because of his uniform”.

Black Lives Matter Disrupts Minnesota State Fair, Block Highway On Bridge Near Fair

Screen Shot 2015-08-29 at 5.07.25 PM

They are ‘disturbed’, that is for sure.

ST PAUL, Minn. (Reuters) – Several hundred protesters from the Black Lives Matter movement marched to the Minnesota State Fair on Saturday to bring attention to race issues ranging from policing to underrepresentation of minorities at one of the nation’s biggest state fairs.

The mixed-race crowd, including senior citizens and children, chanted slogans along the 1-1/2 mile route and briefly lay down on a bridge south of the fairgrounds.

“There’s a cliche that Minnesota is nice to everyone, but that’s not the case for people of color,” said 51-year-old marcher Tim, who did not want to give his last name because event organizers said they had received death threats.

“As a white person I want to be vocal about that … This (protest march) is a small inconvenience to state fair traffic compared to what people of color experience every day,” he said.

Fairgoers stopped to take photos of the marchers, organized by Black Lives St. Paul.

“We’re disturbed on a day-to-day basis. We don’t mind disturbing the status quo for one day,” said Trahern Crews, 40, an event organizer who is running for a seat on the St. Paul City Council.
