The Courageous Among Us

The Kurdish female commander in charge of leading all women fighters against Islamic State in the battle over the border town of Kobane is calling on women throughout the world to help defeat the Islamic State and end its mistreatment of women.

(Admirable but she won't get any help from Western feminists. They're too busy whining and wanted someone else to buy their birth control. The Kurdish female fighters are incredibly brave and are fighting evil. American feminists can't seem to tell the difference between good and evil.)

Another Idiotic School District -

A former Marine who served in Iraq has been banned from his daughter's Maryland high school after a heated argument over a lesson on Islam. (Students should not be told to list the "benefits" of Islam, even if they actually could find any.)

The Delusions of Progressives

Facts and truth are flexible to the Left.

Laws used to be real, not abstract. Again, not anymore. The administration sort of enacts some elements of Obamacare but ignores others. Enforcement of federal immigration law is negotiable, likewise depending on the campaign cycle.

The Tawana Brawley case, the Duke men’s lacrosse team accusations, and the O. J. Simpson verdict were constructed fantasies. No one cared much about the inconvenient facts or the lies that destroyed people’s lives — given that myths were deemed useful facts for achieving larger racial justice.

It no longer really matters much what the grand jury will find in the Michael Brown fatal-shooting case. Whether he had just robbed a store, was high on drugs, was walking down the middle of the road and prompted a violent confrontation with a police officer, or whether the officer was the aggressor in the confrontation, these have become mere competing narratives. The facts pale in comparison with the higher truth that Brown was black and unarmed, while Officer Darren Wilson white and armed. The latter scenario is all that matters.

Language is useful for inventing new realities. “Illegal alien” is a time-tested noun denoting foreign citizens who crossed a national border contrary to law. “Undocumented immigrant” is now used to diminish the bothersome fact that that millions have broken and continue to break the law.

Not Ready for Prime Time

 (The) piece provides extensive evidence in support of one of our major concerns: that the current U.S. leadership is not up to the task of dealing with a world facing a fast-growing array of complex challenges..... If that is the mindset of the Administration—that this job is just too difficult—then the President needs to find himself a new national security team. Of course whether he would listen to that new team is a separate question.

(But if the radical leftists in the administration really believed that the United States was the major problem in the world, then an apology tour by Obama would have resolved it. But they were deluded and now reality is setting in.

For Proof, There's The Washington Post Story

An election integrity watchdog group is suing the state of Maryland, alleging that it has discovered massive and ongoing fraudulent voting by non-U.S. citizens in one county. But because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years.

 

(Of course many public officials did not care if illegal aliens voted as long as they voted for Democrats. Which shows the utter corruption of some of our public officials)

Progressive Politicians in Action

Barely a week after being named the 17th richest member of Congress, liberal firebrand and Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson is refusing to support his estranged wife and their kids, and his wife has turned to government food stamps to support her family, WFTV 9 Orlando reports.

(Not surprising. Grayson was always one of the most obnoxious people on the face of the Earth, and he had a lot of competition from other Progressives.)

CBS Becomes the "No Comment" Network

CBS claims up in regard to former reporter's charges

Attkisson said in her book that under Pelley’s leadership at “Evening News,” her investigative pieces began getting killed regularly.

Former “Evening News’’ Executive Producer Patricia Shevlin, now a producer at “60 Minutes,” also didn’t return a call, with the CBS operator saying the top exec was too busy to talk to The Post.

Attkisson has claimed that after she complained that the network shelved several of her reports on Solyndra — the Obama-supporting green-energy firm that went bankrupt despite hundreds of millions of dollars in government handouts — Shevlin replied, “What’s the matter, don’t you support green energy?”

(When a Democrat is in the White House, the media becomes useless)

A Post-Christian Society

Many college students support post-birth abortion, even up to 4- kor 5- years old. “For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,”

 

(Actually, a Philip K. Dick short story predicted this some 40-plus years ago. He was condemned by pro-choice forces but his dark vision is playing out. This, and Rotherham, is a view of post Christian society.)

And I Really Wasn't Impressed With That Movie

NR's Jay Nordlinger attended a Freedom Forum in Oslo. He asked a 21-year-old North Korean defector when did she realize her country was not normal.

I could never have predicted her answer. She says it was when she saw the movie Titanic, in a bootleg copy. This movie, as you know, not only tells the story of the famous tragedy at sea. It invents a love story between a young man and a young woman. In the end, he gives his life for her.

Watching this movie, Yeonmi was stunned. In North Korea, there were no love stories. The only “love” was for the Communist party and the Kims. There was nothing more honorable than to die for the Kims. And, in this movie, a person was offering his life for another — for an ordinary person he genuinely loved.

Yeonmi wondered whether the director and actors would be killed. In North Korean terms, the movie was a criminal act.

(This is a reminder of how evil communism is and was. It still has many defenders, especially on college faculties. But communism and those who backed it, even tacitly, were and are evil.)

How's That Hopey-Changey Thing Working Out?

Driving attitudes is a pervasive sense of a country in trouble. Overwhelming majorities say the country is badly off-track and give the economy negative ratings. Economic expectations are little better today than they were at this time four years ago.

Six in 10 say they cannot trust the government in Washington to do what is right — the same as a year ago in the aftermath of the government shutdown and the botched rollout of the federal Web site for the Affordable Care Act.
