Hillary Lackey Gets Hammered by Trump Supporters For Saying Obama Admin “Honorable, Scandal-Free”, by Gateway Pundit.
Brian Fallon is a CNN political contributor and former Hillary Clinton spox. He … praised the Obama administration for being “honorable and scandal-free”.
Here’s a short list of just a few of Obama’s scandals:
- Hillary’s private server
- Fast and Furious
- AG Holder being held in contempt of Congress
- Delivering pallets of cash to Iran in the dead of the night
- Obamacare “You can keep your Doctor”
- IRS targeting conservative groups
- Bowe Bergdahl
- Spying on journalists
- Unmasking/spying on political opponents
Trump supporters torched him.
This episode demonstrates the power of the media on the echo chamber. The US mainstream media, echoed by the ABC here in Australia, consistently downplayed any negatives about the Obama administration — to the point where someone living in that echo chamber would have the impression that the Obama presidency was scandal free and, well, really good.
Yet, from before he got into office, everything about Trump was scandalous, and all his negatives (and then some) were up-played ridiculously. So our leftist friends could reasonably assume, from their media consumption, that Trump is hopelessly scandal-ridden — certainly much more than Obama.
Given that the Russia story is a beat up because no evidence of anything significant has been put forward, on any fair and reasonable comparison the Obama administration was considerably more scandalous. Still, scandals usually take time to develop and come out.
Which neatly illustrates the main theme of this blog: the media are the problem, because they promote a PC fantasy world rather than reality.

Nasty Librarian Who Declined Melania’s ‘Racist’ Seuss Books Seen Pictured in ‘Cat in the Hat’ Outfit 2 Yrs Ago, by Gateway Pundit.
A Cambridge, Massachusetts librarian rejected a shipment of books from First Lady Melania Trump for the school library.
The librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro said the Dr. Seuss books the First Lady was donating were racist.
She is an Obama supporter — as you can see from her library propaganda.
Liz Phipps Soeiro wrote an editorial in the local paper calling Dr. Seuss a racist: “Another fact that many people are unaware of is that Dr. Seuss’s illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes. Open one of his books (If I Ran a Zoo or And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, for example), and you’ll see the racist mockery in his art.” …
Now for the capital “H” hypocrisy:
Soeiro was pictured in a ‘Cat in the Hat’ outfit just a couple years ago with a huge smile on her face.
Typical liberal–hypocritical and full of hate.

Bizarre Liberal Meltdowns. Racism Everywhere! Melania Trump, Dr. Seuss, Obama, Seussgate
The Dr Seuss story starts at 3:00. (The first story is interesting too — highly recommended.)
A US reader comments:
I think this illustrates just how bad things are here. … Things are really bad here. Have you gotten to this level of silliness in Australia? Dr. Seuss is a racist. How did we ever get here. I can’t comprehend the reasoning.
Mark Steyn has some excellent commentary:
If everything is racist, nothing is racist. We’re nuttier than the Nazis on this…. in our cultural totalitarianism.

Interesting commentary from a couple of years ago. Fall of civilization stuff, about a bored, jaded, and self-loathing elite.
GOP, Can You Hear Us Normals Now? By Kurt Schlichter.
Are we finally getting through to the GOP Establishment; has the pain we militant normals have dealt it performed the vital task of being the teacher of last resort? It’s too bad that’s how the Establishment has to learn that we’re serious about nuking business as usual. We tried being nice; that was the Tea Party, and the Establishment trashed it. …
Poor Luther Strange, the Collateral Damage Candidate. He’s a nice enough guy … But he’s also Mitch McConnell’s guy; this was not a diss of Donald Trump …
The base wanted to teach the Elderly Mutant Establishment Turtle, and those aligned with him, a lesson. So the base went with Roy Moore, who is super-colorful … because Roy Moore constitutes a giant middle finger to the crowd that failed to summon up the cojones to repeal Obamacare yet found endless investigations of RUSSIA! TREASON! OK, IT’S JUST SOME ADS ON FACEBOOK BUT WE’RE STILL GOING WITH TREASON! and amnesty for middle-aged Dreamers …
Are you listening? GOP, can you hear us normals now?
See, we’re serious. The ritual sacrifice of Eric Cantor was not a fluke. The election of Donald Trump was not a fluke. None of this is a fluke. We really mean it. We want change. And if you won’t give it to us, we’ll fire you and elect someone who will. …
We face an enemy that hates us, that wants us suppressed and silenced, that will do everything it can to take our First, Second, and every other Amendment’s rights from us and condemn us to a future of baking liberals’ cakes and fearing that we might be jailed for using the wrong pronoun. There’s a real threat to the United States continuing as we know it. We see it. Do you? If you Republicans are too weak and cowardly to fight, then we lose it all, and we know it. We’re woke – ask one of your Millennial interns what that means.
California mulling ban on fossil-fuel vehicles, by Bloomberg.
The internal combustion engine’s days may be numbered in California, where officials are mulling whether a ban on sales of polluting autos is needed to achieve long-term targets for cleaner air.
Governor Jerry Brown has expressed an interest in barring the sale of vehicles powered by internal-combustion engines, Mary Nichols, chairman of the California Air Resources Board, said in an interview Friday at Bloomberg headquarters in New York. The earliest such a ban is at least a decade away, she said.
Brown, one of the most outspoken elected official in the U.S. about the need for policies to combat climate change, would be replicating similar moves by China, France and the U.K. …
If a ban were implemented, automakers from General Motors Co. to Toyota Motor Corp. would be under new pressure to make electric vehicles the standard for personal transportation in the most populous U.S. state, casting fresh doubts on the future of gasoline- and diesel-powered autos elsewhere. …
California has set a goal to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 80 per cent from 1990 levels by 2050.
I’ll bet they drop all that nonsense in a few years, when it becomes widely accepted that the carbon dioxide theory of global warming was wrong.
SSM’s Impact on Religious Freedom, by Augusto Zimmerman.
Behind the ‘love is love’ sloganeering stands the muscular presence of statist enforcers. Given the demonstrated eagerness of publicly funded anti-discrimination bodies to harass even Catholic bishops with protracted lawfare, where a ‘Yes’ victory leads is grimly apparent.
Howard rejects PM’s vow on religious freedom, by Dennis Shanahan.
John Howard has repudiated Malcolm Turnbull’s assurances that freedoms of conscience will be addressed after the same-sex marriage survey and foreshadowed a parliamentary showdown before Christmas while renewing his calls for the government to spell out religious protections before the poll closes.
Formally joining a public campaign for the first time since his 2007 election defeat and specifically using his role as “former prime minister of Australia” in a series of nationwide full-page newspaper advertisements, Mr Howard said leaving the religious-freedom protections until after the ballot was “the equivalent of saying it doesn’t matter very much”.

Muslims to be majority in Europe within two generations, by Rowan Scarborough.
Within 40 years, given current demographic trends, the white population in France and the rest of old Europe will recede, creating a Muslim majority, a French researcher says.
Charles Gave, an economist, fund manager and political commentator, published his conclusions this month on the webpage of his think tank, Institute des Libertes. He writes of the “disappearance of the European populations” as native populations shrink and Muslims continue to exhibit a robust fertility rate.
Mr. Gave, president of Gavekal Research, acknowledges that his decidedly unpolitically correct view may bring him scorn and possibly censorship. The political left generally protects Islam from criticism. In the U.S., President Obama consistently defended Islam and mocked Christians for their criticism.
The paper, titled “The White Plague,” is dangerous, Mr. Gave said, “for my personal respectability and my chance to be heard in our beautiful democracy.”
The financier draws his conclusion from demographics. He assesses France’s white, or native, birthrate at 1.4 children per woman, compared with a Muslim rate of 3.4 to 4 children. France’s population today is 67 million. Unlike the U.S., France does not conduct a census on ethnic origin, but based on outside polling, some researchers, including Mr. Gave, believe the French population is already 10 percent Muslim, with 6.7 million people.
France’s official birthrate is 1.9 per woman, but Mr. Gave’s calculations put the native rate at 1.4. Overall, the European birthrate is a low 1.6 per woman.

Chinese Police Order Xinjiang’s Muslims to Hand in All Copies of The Quran, by Radi Free Asia.
Chinese authorities in the northwestern region of Xinjiang have ordered ethnic minority Muslim families to hand in religious items including prayer mats and copies of the Quran to the authorities, RFA has learned.
Officials across Xinjiang have been warning neighborhoods and mosques that ethnic minority Uyghur, Kazakh and Kyrgyz Muslims must hand in the items or face harsh punishment if they are found later, sources in the region said.
“Officials at village, township and county level are confiscating all Qurans and the special mats used for namaaz [prayer],” a Kazakh source in Altay prefecture, near the border with Kazakhstan told RFA on Wednesday.
“Pretty much every household has a Quran, and prayer mats,” he said.
China may develop their own Constantine, who will crush Islam and legalize Christianity. It is the only major power currently with the will and resources to deal with Islam.

Sweden: Afghans 79 TIMES More Likely to RAPE, by 10News.
New data from Sweden shows how immigration and refugees from Islamic countries puts especially women in danger.
92 percent of all severe rapes (violent rapes) are committed by migrants and refugees. 100 percent of all attack rapes (where victim and attacker had no previous contact) are committed by that same group. In other words, thousands of Swedish women would not have been raped and thereby traumatized for life, had it not been for the influx from Islamic countries.
The top-10 list over rapists’ national back ground shows only one non-Islamic country (Chile). Most rapists have Iraqi back ground, followed by refugees and migrants from Afghanistan, Somalia, Eritrea, Syria, Gambia, Iran, Palestine, Chile and Kosovo.
When taking into account the number of people from the different nationalities in Sweden, Afghans are 79 times more likely to commit a sexual crime than people born from Swedish citizens.
Self-styled humanitarianism superpower becomes rape capital of the world. Leftists lead!

Sydney girl, 12, claims sexual assault by multiple teenage boys in park, by Ava Benny-Morrison
A 12-YEAR-OLD girl has told police she was sexually assaulted, possibly by up to five teenage boys, in bushland at a western Sydney park. …
The girl was alone when she went to meet friends at Progress Park in Auburn on September 9. She has told police she was sexually assaulted in isolated bushland adjacent to the park, not far from a dimly lit footpath and playground.
At the time, an Eid festival — marking the holy Islamic holiday — was in full swing in Progress Park.
Hundreds of people, including families and young children, flocked to the event that afternoon. The alleged victim emerged from the bushland and reported the ordeal to a family member.
Apart from noting the Eid Festival in the park, the article fashionably gives no clues about the alleged rapists. We are being systematically not-informed, lied to by omission.
