When you think you GET these guys, there’s always one more level … and it’s always funny, disgusting, and tragic

IDF expresses regret over “shocking” incident, condemns Gaza terrorists for strapping explosive devices to animals in order to attack Israeli troops.

Terrorists in Gaza attempted to attack IDF soldiers with an explosives-laden donkey on Friday, the military said.

IDF forces operating in the Rafah area near the Gaza-Egypt border located the donkey suspiciously approaching their position and were forced to open fire at it, causing the explosives to detonate.

No injuries were sustained to the soldiers.

The military expressed its regret over the “shocking” incident, and condemned terrorists in Gaza for strapping bombastic devices to innocent animals as a means of attacking Israeli forces.

"This cruel incident is the most recent attempt by Gaza terror organizations to make such an abominable use of animals as explosives couriers," the IDF said on its website.

As They Should Be --- US Jews Furious Over ‘Washington Post’ Cartoon Showing Netanyahu Punching Palestinian Infant

From the Jerusalem Post:
A prominent American Jewish organization is denouncing The Washington Post for posting an animated cartoon on its YouTube channel depicting Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu beating a Palestinian infant. 
The caricature is aimed at apportioning blame equally between Israel and Hamas for the suffering of Gazan civilians. It was created by Ann Telnaes, one of the newspaper’s editorial cartoonists. 
The Simon Wiesenthal Center declared its outrage over the cartoon. In a statement released to news agencies on Friday, the center’s associate dean, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, said the clip was “disgusting.” 
“It is disgusting that The Washington Post would present an animated cartoon that is so profoundly removed from the truth,” said Cooper. 
“Millions of Israeli citizens—men, women, and children—have been forced into bomb shelters and saferooms by thousands of missiles and rockets targeted at them by Hamas terrorists, whose open and avowed goal is the destruction of the Jewish state.” 
“Even Israel’s enemies have recognized that Israel’s military countermeasures against Hamas have included phone and text warnings as well as leaflets urging innocent civilians in Gaza to vacate the targeted areas,” Cooper said. 
“It is the Hamas leadership that openly uses the people of Gaza to act as human shields to protect their weapons of mass destruction.” 
“Israelis are saddened by the deaths of four Palestinian children on a Gaza beach yesterday, but the blood of these innocent children is on the hands of Hamas leaders, not Binyamin Netanyahu,” Rabbi Cooper also said.

WSJ Article: 16 Major Scientists Say, No Need to Panic About Global Warming There's no compelling scientific argument...


From the Wall Street Journal:
In September, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Ivar Giaever, a supporter of President Obama in the last election, publicly resigned from the American Physical Society (APS) with a letter that begins: 
"I did not renew [my membership] because I cannot live with the [APS policy] statement: 'The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth's physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now.' In the APS it is OK to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible?" 
In spite of a multidecade international campaign to enforce the message that increasing amounts of the "pollutant" carbon dioxide will destroy civilization, large numbers of scientists, many very prominent, share the opinions of Dr. Giaever. 
And the number of scientific "heretics" is growing with each passing year. The reason is a collection of stubborn scientific facts. 
Perhaps the most inconvenient fact is the lack of global warming for well over 10 years now. This is known to the warming establishment, as one can see from the 2009 "Climategate" email of climate scientist Kevin Trenberth: 
"The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't." 
But the warming is only missing if one believes computer models where so-called feedbacks involving water vapor and clouds greatly amplify the small effect of CO2. The lack of warming for more than a decade—indeed, the smaller-than-predicted warming over the 22 years since the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) began issuing projections—suggests that computer models have greatly exaggerated how much warming additional CO2 can cause. 
Faced with this embarrassment, those promoting alarm have shifted their drumbeat from warming to weather extremes, to enable anything unusual that happens in our chaotic climate to be ascribed to CO2. 
The fact is that CO2 is not a pollutant. CO2 is a colorless and odorless gas, exhaled at high concentrations by each of us, and a key component of the biosphere's life cycle. Plants do so much better with more CO2 that greenhouse operators often increase the CO2 concentrations by factors of three or four to get better growth. This is no surprise since plants and animals evolved when CO2 concentrations were about 10 times larger than they are today. Better plant varieties, chemical fertilizers and agricultural management contributed to the great increase in agricultural yields of the past century, but part of the increase almost certainly came from additional CO2 in the atmosphere. 
Although the number of publicly dissenting scientists is growing, many young scientists furtively say that while they also have serious doubts about the global-warming message, they are afraid to speak up for fear of not being promoted—or worse. They have good reason to worry. 
In 2003, Dr. Chris de Freitas, the editor of the journal Climate Research, dared to publish a peer-reviewed article with the politically incorrect (but factually correct) conclusion that the recent warming is not unusual in the context of climate changes over the past thousand years. 
The international warming establishment quickly mounted a determined campaign to have Dr. de Freitas removed from his editorial job and fired from his university position. Fortunately, Dr. de Freitas was able to keep his university job. 
This is not the way science is supposed to work, but we have seen it before—for example, in the frightening period when Trofim Lysenko hijacked biology in the Soviet Union. Soviet biologists who revealed that they believed in genes, which Lysenko maintained were a bourgeois fiction, were fired from their jobs. Many were sent to the gulag and some were condemned to death. 
Why is there so much passion about global warming, and why has the issue become so vexing that the American Physical Society, from which Dr. Giaever resigned a few months ago, refused the seemingly reasonable request by many of its members to remove the word "incontrovertible" from its description of a scientific issue? 
There are several reasons, but a good place to start is the old question "cui bono?" Or the modern update, "Follow the money."

Another Take On Why Jews Vote Democrat

From Evan Sayet:
American Jews overwhelmingly tend to vote Democrat for one simple reason: they see the choice as being between 1) the Democrats and their belief in nothing versus 2) the Republicans and their beliefs based on their Christian faith and heritage. 
Given that choice, then, rather than side with people of faith – which they see as a different and potentially antagonistic belief system – they feel safer in the party that is devoid of any values or convictions. 
The “thinking” behind this is that, if people believe in things then they might fight for those things. They might even commit atrocities in their name. Only those who believe in nothing have nothing to kill or fight for. If everyone just believed in nothing, the “thinking” goes: then the Jews would be safe, for if one doesn’t believe in anything then they can’t believe the Jews are bad.

Pro-Erdogan Turkish Paper: "God Bless Hitler;" Jews Should Apologize For Israel, Else Risk Violence

From Ace of Spades:
Obama flatters himself by conceiving of himself as an "idealist" on foreign policy. He won't indulge or even acknowledge man's base and hateful nature; he'll just talk about a foreign policy that would work if men were better things. 
But they're not. 
Men are largely -- and, depending on which part of the world you're talking about, oftenmostly -- prone to reversion to animal, simian-level behaviors when they act in groups. 
That is to say, when they speak about foreign policy, my tribe against this other tribe.And like apes they show force, and only back down from shows of force.Obama, as I say, flatters himself. He thinks he's doing something special by ignoring reality, by adhering to a fantasy foreign policy. 
It is not difficult to invent a fantasy foreign policy premised on the easiest possible preconditions -- that is, the preconditions of all men adhering to strict reason, feeling empathy for even their rivals, recoiling from violence or coercion. 
In fact, you wouldn't even need a foreign policy were those preconditions in existence -- man would simply live in harmony because he would be possessed of the virtue of the angels. 
How people can flatter themselves into thinking it's nobel to flee from reality I'll never understand.

Saudi Paper:”It seems Hamas does not pay much attention to the number of dead Palestinians”


Israeli missiles and Gaza’s bomb shelters

Few weeks ago, three Israeli teens were kidnapped and murdered. Two of them held dual citizenships, Israeli and American. Few days later, apparently to avenge the deaths, a Palestinian teen was kidnapped and killed. It was clear that the two incidents would spell disaster. In other words, four teens were murdered and there were more killings to come.
In the wake of the four killings, many in Israel and the West Bank including some mayors in Israeli and Arab towns urged both the Israeli government and Hamas not to escalate tensions but it looked obvious that things would not calm down and the rest of the story is known to all.
A question answer of which is not known to anyone is: Why Gaza does not have bomb shelter? Hamas took control of Gaza Strip in 2005 following Israeli withdrawal. However, hostilities never ended. In one of the conflicts around 1,500 Palestinians lost their lives and the Israeli side sustained few casualties. Undoubtedly, Israel is militarily powerful than Hamas. Had Hamas built bomb shelters, the causalities would have been reduced. It seems Hamas does not pat much attention to the number of dead Palestinians. Hamas is not gaining anything by locking horns with Israel.
In the wake of this current crisis, people around the world took to the streets, some supporting Israel and some opposing it. Reportedly many Jews around the world took part in protests slamming Israeli attacks on Gaza. Many Arabs criticized Hamas’ “irresponsible” approach that has put Palestinians in harm’s way. In other words, there are people from both sides who are not in favor of armed conflict. So why don’t these people sit together for a truce resulting in a lasting peace? Now, let us go back to the absence of bomb shelters in Gaza. Hamas either does not understand the rule of the game or simply just turn a blind eye to it. Hamas know well that Israel will hit back and hit hard if attacked. So, why Hamas was successful in spreading a sophisticated network of tunnels and fail to build simple bomb shelters if they knew there would be armed conflicts? Is Hamas willing to sacrifice Palestinians to get more Arab and foreign financial aid and what is more, does Hamas receive orders from abroad or they simply have no control over various factions within Hamas? As we have seen, some of Hamas missiles are either from Iran or used Iranian technologies. So, the question is, can Hamas use these missiles or its technologies without a green light from Iran and is the attack from Gaza planned by the Iranians to take some of the pressure off Bashar Assad?
Till the time of writing this article, the number of Palestinian dead is approaching over 200 and we have seen gruesome scenes of dead children but we all know that the dust will eventually settle and they will just become statistics in history books. What if the Israeli ground forces attack northern Gaza? How many casualties Hamas is willing to sustain?
Hamas had been in isolation from the day it took control of Gaza because of its behavior. So, maybe Hamas wanted to emerge from this isolation and catch world’s attention but other means should have been adopted to do that. Leaders of Hamas are now under more scrutiny from their people. Hamas leaders are jet setters. They travel high class, stay at the best hotels and eat the best food but their people are not paid their salaries on time and what is worse is that they are always under constant pressure from Hamas rule and the Israeli missiles. And Hamas did not even think of building bomb shelters. So, is Hamas looking for more innocent Palestinian casualties to gain more sympathy from the outside world?
Israel is using lethal weapons at a time when many countries in the Arab world are in chaos. There are more Syrian refugees and displaced families than there are Palestinians. There is more destruction in Libya and Yemen than there is in Gaza and there are far more gruesome killing scenes in Iraq than in Gaza. The Arabs are busy. So, the assets of Hamas could have been utilized to educate the Palestinian youths. But if Hamas really wanted an armed conflict, then they should have at least built some bomb shelters for the poor innocent Palestinians. Most of them don’t want this armed conflict.

Border Patrol Agents Threatened To Defy Orders and Stand Down If DHS Used Force On Murrieta Protesters

From the Conservative Treehouse:
In an exclusive expose regarding the immigration standoff in Murrieta, California, it was revealed by a confidential informant inside the Murrieta U.S. Border Patrol facility that the real reason busses stopped delivering illegal immigrants was due to a virtual mutiny within the U.S. Border Patrol ranks. 
Guerilla Media Network investigative journalists conducted a recorded telephone interview with a highly credible and prominent Murrieta community leader on Sunday July 14, 2014 when it was revealed that frontline U.S. Border Patrol agents threatened to stand down if the Department of Homeland Security executed a plan to use force upon protesters if they impeded buses transporting undocumented immigrants into the Murrieta processing facility. 
“Most of the Border Patrol agents here at this facility are residents of Murrieta, and when they found out that the DHS was going to come in with riot gear, the agents declared that they would not obey any unlawful orders which violate the Constitutional rights of peaceful protesters.” said the informant. 
“Our contact inside the U.S. Border Patrol told us that we do not even realize how impactful the protest was….it was a shot heard around the world….all the way back to Guatemala; Mexico, and not just the U.S. Government….the influx of immigrants coming over the border has decreased from 1500 per day down to 800 per day…cut almost in half as a direct result of what we’ve done.” 
The front line U.S. Border Patrol agents are essentially refusing to perform any unconstitutional act upon the protesters, and they let their intentions be known to their superiors. 
As a result, the Department of Homeland Security could not proceed with delivery of another busload of illegal immigrants to Murrieta due to the lack of support by Murrieta Police Officers, as well as Border Patrol Agents who are steadfast in upholding their oath to defend and support the Constitution of the United States. 
On June 23, 2014, local residents of Murrieta California express their will to prohibit the U.S. Government’s lawless policy of transporting and dumping immigrants who are being allowed into the United States without proper documentation to verify they do not have a known criminal history; processing immigrants without proper medical screening; accepting busloads of immigrants at overcrowded facilities without regard to capacity, as well as dumping of unlawfully admitted immigrants in communities all over the United States.

The Seven Gambit

From Richard Fernandez:
Just as soon as Israel accepted an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire Hamas fired 47 rockets killing one Israeli citizen. Anyone who has followed the conflict could have predicted this with certainty; the point of a ceasefire — for a terrorist organization — is to break it for exactly the same reason it purposely attacks women and children. 
Dr. Anna Geifman tried to explain that the reason why innocents are selected as terror targets is because “children are the last consecrated absolute”. That is just why they must be killed in the cruelest way possible. 
For “militant nihilism strives to ruin first and foremost what their contemporaries hold sacred”. Nihilism isn’t the absence of a belief. It is something subtly different: it is the belief in nothing. 
The most powerful weapon of terrorism is therefore the unyielding No. “No I will not give up. No I will not tell the truth. No I will not play fair. No I will not spare children. No I will not stop even if you surrender to me; I will not cease even if you give me everything you have, up to and including your children’s lives. Nothing short of destroying me absolutely can make me stop. And therefore I will defeat you even if you kill me. Because I will make you pay the price in guilt for annihilating me.” 
It’s an extremely powerful weapon. The Absolute No is a devastating attack on the self-image and esteem of civilization. Hamas will demonstrate the No, the Nothing. It will show that deep down inside Israelis — and Americans — are animals like them. 
This can be called the Seven Gambit, from a 1995 film which explores this exact theme. It depicts two detectives versus the devil in the shape of nameless man, who kills people not by attacking them directly, but by creating situations where they kill themselves by yielding to one of the seven deadly sins: sloth, gluttony, vanity — and finally vengeance and wrath. 
His final victim is the detective. 
In the final scene the devil provokes Detective David Mills into unlawfully shooting him by showing him the head of his pregnant wife. The devil wins by making the point that murder lies dormant, waiting to be awakened, even within the bosom of the law. 
The power of Hamas lies in that they will never stop hating. No ceasefire, concession, negotiation or entreaty will move them. That is their inhuman strength. The Jews can even exterminate them, but only at the cost of destroying all the ideals they hold dear. 
If the last Hamas activist could speak he would say this: “Shoot! I am the last. Carry out your ethnic cleansing, just as the Nazis tried with you. You will never be able to look yourself in the mirror again. The price of victory is to win on our terms. Nothing will remain of your precious Jewish self-esteem, of the illusion that you are a civilization dedicated to morality. What will you do after you kill me? Go to your synagogue and a hymn of praise to your God? 
“At that moment your faith will desert you. For you claim your God does not desire blood, that yours is a God of love and I say therefore He is false. The only real Gods are those of Hate. A God that does not live by blood does not exist as my God who lives by blood exists; and when you pull the trigger you will be worshipping at my altar! I have won at last. Come to prayer. Come to Islam.” 
And it would be so easy wouldn’t it? Just line up the M-109 howitzers to load up and fire for effect. Playing the nice guy only wins you insults even from — or most especially from — Amnesty International. “Israeli military’s ‘knock on roof’ warnings criticized by rights groups”. The “knock on the roof” is the Israeli military’s warning for civilians before it fires on a building and is being used extensively as Israeli airstrikes target Hamas sites in Operation Protective Edge. 
The Israeli Air Force developed the technique in 2009 as a way to warn civilians in Gaza to leave buildings it has identified as locations where Hamas keeps ammunition, a rocket stash or command post. But it is a controversial policy that has been criticized by human rights groups. 
The Absolute No wins again. They reject your attempts to be humane, they utterly deny your pretense at humanity. So why not fire for effect? Do it. You want to, don’t you? Wars through history have exacted an irreparable spiritual price from its combatants. And all who have fought them know it. 
In the movie of the same name, Michael Collins laments the price of his struggle against the British: I hate them. Not for their race or their brutality. I hate them for leaving us no way out. I hate whoever put a gun in Vinny’s hand. I know it’s me and I hate myself for it. I hate them for making hate necessary. “But did you really Michael?’ the Hamas activist can ask, ‘or did you enjoy it, as I did?’ It’s not an original thought. 
William Tecumseh Sherman knew before Collins that War is Hell; that the only excuse for it was the belief that you could in the subsequent peace, chain up the devils. He wrote in his letters, “you cannot qualify war in harsher terms than I will. War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it … If the United States submits to a division now, it will not stop, but will go on until we reap the fate of Mexico, which is eternal war.” 
Nor has its character changed much. Curtis LeMay, during what we remember as the Good War, shared his formula for defeating the enemy. “If you kill enough of them, they stop fighting.” 
Human beings are remarkably good at calling up the devil in their fellow human beings. They start out Christian enough, but give them time. In the first Christmas of the Great War, when fighting was but a few months old, there enough fellow-feeling among the combatants remained to spontaneously create what is now remembered as the Christmas Truce. 
Through the week leading up to Christmas, parties of German and British soldiers began to exchange seasonal greetings and songs between their trenches; on occasion, the tension was reduced to the point that individuals would walk across to talk to their opposite numbers bearing gifts. 
On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, many soldiers from both sides—as well as, to a lesser degree, from French units—independently ventured into “no man’s land”, where they mingled, exchanging food and souvenirs. As well as joint burial ceremonies, several meetings ended in carol-singing. 
Troops from both sides were also friendly enough to play games of football with one another. By the next year they were modifying their bayonets so it would hurt more when you stabbed the enemy. 
When we look at Hamas we are looking at some very old and ancient. Does the devil win in Seven? For that matter does he win on earth? Say no if you can. For Hamas is determined to prove that you too are like them. Just like them.

Kidnapper’s Mother ‘Proud of Him to my Last Day’

Mother of one of two Hamas kidnappers denies involvement, but states her pride ‘if he did it,’ adding ‘I raised him on the knees of Islam.’

Israel Security Agency
The mother of one of the Hamas kidnappers who the IDF has identified as being behind the June 12 abduction of three Israeli teens has spoken out, both denying his involvement yet saying if he is behind the abduction “I’ll be proud of him till my final day.”
The revelation comes in an interview with Channel 10 by the mother of Amar Abu-Eisha (33), whose identity, along with that of Marwan Kawasmeh (29) was released by the IDF last Thursday, as the main actors behind the abduction. The two are known Hamas terrorists from the Hevron region.
"They’re throwing the guilt on him by accusing him of kidnapping. If he truly did it - I’ll be proud of him till my final day," said the mother in a cold voice, reports the news channel.
Speaking from her home in Judea, the mother claimed that on the day of the kidnapping, Abu-Eisha told his wife he was going to work and could be late coming home.
"If he did the kidnapping I’ll be proud of him. I raised my children on the knees of the (Islamic) religion, they are religious guys, honest and clean-handed, and their goal is to bring the victory of Islam," continued Abu-Eisha’s mother.

That home is now unfortunately, slated for demolition. Abu-Aisha’s father, Omar, himself has been arrested numerous times for security offenses according to the IDF, and Amar’s brother was killed while committing a terror attack in 2005 against an IDF patrol.
Allow me to again lay out simply why no peace is possible .. for there to be a two state solution of ANYKIND, the Palestinian must ULTIMATELY (bargain away boyz) cede right of return, and accept Israel by recognizing the Jewish state (embassies and all that).
Here are the results of a poll conducted BY PALESTINIANS in JUNE
I have YET to speak to any Palestinian, or Arab, who would agree to a Palestinian state in return for recognition of a jewish one, let alone cede right of return on the final day of negotiations.
I have been speaking with Arabs all over the gulf, and in the Levant since 9/13/2001.
This is why Israel should now, given the refusal of a cease fire, conduct a merciless decapitation WAR against HAMAS, and negotiate with Egypt (who now also wants to buy Israeli Med. gas and oil) SEALING totally the crossing from Sinai into Gaza to any arms, any tunnels, and any way missile components can POSSIBLY reach HAMAS.
No peace is possible, only truces during which more arms for more death can be built up. Israel should conduct themselves in this reality.
Any Palestinian leader who LEAD to a comprehensive peace via true negotiations would be a DEAD MAN. It is the Palestinian peoples who do not want peace.
This is why that mother will be proud of her child murdering son till her dying day.

“Neither Gaza nor the Ramallah half of the Palestinian Authority pays for the power consumed”

So I am reading about the hysterical 'HAMAS hits its own electrical supply line into Gaza story' when I come upon this little factoid.
Israel is supplying the electricity for the West Bank and Gaza FREE?
It was almost poetic justice – a rocket that Hamas fired at Israel on Sunday night knocked out a high-voltage line that supplies electricity to some 70,000 Gazans. This was a blackout waiting to happen.

Literally biting the hand that feeds it, Hamas persistently aims at the very Ashkelon power plant upon which Gaza depends for its electricity. Israel has refrained from switching the power off lest it incur censure from abroad.

Neither Gaza nor the Ramallah half of the Palestinian Authority pays for the power consumed. Gaza alone, it’s estimated, owes the Israel Electric Corporation NIS 220 million (out of the staggering NIS1.5 billion of unpaid Palestinian debts).

The downed electricity line is one of a dozen high-tension lines with 120 megawatts per hour transmission capacity. Its loss means that the entire area between Khan Yunis and Deir el-Balah has been plunged into darkness.

The damage is reparable, but there’s no quick fix. In the best of times this job could take a long time. As things stand, with more rockets flying out of Gaza, no IEC employees would be willing to risk life and limb and expose themselves to Gazan predations just in order to restore electricity to Gazans. Moreover, no one asks them to.

As a PS, yesterday, HAMAS hit the SECOND electrical supply line coming into Gaza.

Ah, The Irony!

From Digital Spy:

Muslim comic creator of The 99 threatened by ISIS:
"Who can kill Nayef Al-Mutawa who makes fun of Allah's names?" wrote ISIS on Twitter, according to Kuwait Times.

"Whoever finds him, kill him, and he will be rewarded."

Al-Mutawa wrote in reply: "My work has glorified Islam from the US to China for the past ten years.

"I really do not believe in ISIL and Qaeda... I don't care about them."

The 99 centres around a group of superheroes, each of whom embodies one of the 99 attributes of Allah.

Al-Mutawa created the series with the explicit purpose of celebrating the "messages of tolerance and peace" in Islam.

Jewish missionary killed by Hamas mortar fire

As was sadly possible, and now has happened, somebody was murdered by Hamas rockets:
Two Israelis were wounded following a barrage of rocket and mortar fire, one of whom succumbed to his wounds. The victim, Dor Chanin, 37, was at the Erez Crossing delivering food and cheer to soldiers when a barrage of rockets and mortars rained down and critically wounding him.
Absolutely terrible. Condolences for his family.

Update: the government says the Hamas will pay a price for refusing to cease fire, and indeed they should.

I Know It's Hard To Believe, But Lois Lerner's Former FEC Colleague E-mails Are Also Missing

From Yahoo:
The Federal Election Commission recycled the computer hard drive of April Sands — a former co-worker of Lois Lerner’s — hindering an investigation into Sands’ partisan political activities, according to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. 
Sands resigned from the Federal Election Commission in April after she admitted to violating the Hatch Act, which bars executive branch employees from engaging in partisan political activities on federal time and at federal facilities. 
The twist is that Sands also worked under Lois Lerner when the ex-IRS agent — who is currently embroiled in a scandal over the targeting of conservative political groups — worked at the FEC’s enforcement division.

District’s ‘critical thinking’ assignment led at least 50 students to conclude Holocaust never occurred

Superintendent Mohammed Z. Islam

From EAG News:
RIALTO, Calif. – An eighth-grade English assignment that was meant to develop students’ critical thinking skills has, instead, created some 50 new Holocaust deniers. 
In May, Rialto Unified School District leaders came under intense criticism after it was revealed the district’s roughly 2,000 eighth-grade students were given an in-class essay assignment in which they were asked to consider if the Holocaust was “an actual historical event” or if it might have been “a propaganda tool that was used for political and monetary gain.” 
Students were directed to “research” the issue and take a position on it, supporting their conclusion with “textual evidence” – printouts of information culled from three websites, one of which was a Holocaust denial site. 
When news of the assignment broke, Rialto Unified school officials attempted to soothe angry community members by stating that none of the students actually argued that the Holocaust did not occur. 
But an investigation by Los Angeles Daily News proves otherwise. 
The Los Angeles Daily News asked for and received copies of the student essays, and had staff members read through them. 
The staffers found “at least 50 essays (that) denied or doubted the Holocaust occurred.” 
“Even many students who agreed the Holocaust occurred said there were good reasons to believe it had not or that elements of the historical record were actually hoaxes,” the Daily News reports. 
The paper provides several chilling excerpts. 
One student declared there was no way the Holocaust occurred because the Nazis “would have had to have killed 187 people an hour in order to kill 6 million people. Therefore it is impossible.” 
Another flatly asserted that the Holocaust is “a profitable hoax made by the Jews to obtain land, money and power.” 
One student concluded: “With the evidence that was given to me, it clearly was obvious” that the Holocaust never occurred “and I wouldn’t know why anyone would think otherwise.”
It is important to remember, the Superintendent of the school is named MOHAMMED Z. ISLAM.

When Utopian Dreams Shatter - Remember "Peggy Joseph"? She's the euphoric woman who praised Obama's victory in 2008, claiming she would no longer need to worry about paying for her mortgage or car payments

NEW YORK – In his new full-length documentary film, “There’s No Place Like Utopia,” Joel Gilbert found Peggy Joseph, the Florida voter who became infamous during the 2008 presidential campaign for saying Barack Obama would “pay for my gas and my mortgage.” 
Surprisingly, some six years into the Obama presidency, Joseph has turned against the president, disappointed that he did not deliver on his “hope and change” campaign promises. 
“Peggy reminded me of Dorothy from ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ who thought the magical wizard would solve all her problems,” Gilbert told WND in an interview. 
“When I finally found her address, I knocked on her door and brought her a pair of ruby slippers. 
When I interviewed Peggy, I was astonished that Peggy explained that she was now anti-Obama. 
She told me, ‘He was not who we thought or expected him to be.’” 
“Truth and honesty are important,” Joseph explained to Gilbert in the film. “He lied about everything.”

"The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the discussions over a controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade”

DOJ invasion of PRE-K ‘racial punishment ratios’ is SURPASSED by Obama mocking FLOAT.
During the 1930s, the KGB customarily showed up at public events, such as concerts, ballets, operas, and shows.
They did this so that when the word “STALIN” was mentioned for praise before the event, the FIRST person to stop applause during the requisite standing ovation (sometimes MANY before the opening praises ended), would then be ARRESTED, carted off to Lubyanka, questioned with significance, and then a confirmed reservation made for the person, and perhaps their families in a special facility near the Lena River Delta.
Nineteen terrifying words from the Omaha World-Herald:
The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the discussions over a controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade.
Thus did the federal government dispatch an emissary to investigate a minor instance of Midwestern dissent.
A quick recap for the happily uninitiated: The “controversial float” in question was one of many included in this year’s Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Neb. The entry, which featured a zombie standing on an outhouse marked “Obama Presidential Library,” was created by a veteran named Dale Remmich, and was designed, Remmich claims, to express the “political disgust” that he feels at the Obama administration’s mismanagement of the Department of Veteran Affairs. As is the habit now, pictures of the float were quickly pushed around the Internet, attracting the attention and disapprobation of such august institutions as theWashington Post, CBS, ABC, and the Huffington Post — and, it seems, the interest of the United States Department of Justice. This week, the World-Heraldreports, the DOJ “sent a member of its Community Relations Service team, which gets involved in discrimination disputes, to a Thursday meeting about the issue.” Present at the summit were the NAACP, the mayor of the Nebraska town in which the float was displayed, and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, which sponsored the event.
Now for the obvious question: Why? What, exactly, was the problem here? Nobody was killed. Nobody was maimed. Nobody had their material or spiritual interests injured, nor were they stripped of their livelihoods. No federal or state laws were broken. Indeed, not even private rules were broken. More to the point, there was no “discrimination dispute” of the sort with which the DOJ likes to concern itself. Instead, a few free people were vexed because a politician that they like was depicted in an unflattering light. One might well ask, “So what?” Once, Americans tackled the Oregon Trail. Are they now in need of their political “discussions” being arbitrated by glorified social workers sent by Uncle Sam?
In a typically risible statement, Nebraska’s state Democratic party described the incident as one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the office of the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.” That this is almost certainly true demonstrates just how much progress the United States has made in the last 50 years — and, in consequence, how extraordinarily difficult the professionally aggrieved are finding it to fill their quotas. If a fairly standard old saw is among the worst things to have happened to the Cornhusker State in recent memory, the country is in rather good shape, n’est-ce pas?
Exactly what it was about the float that rendered it “racist” was, of course, never explained. Instead, the assertion was merely thrown into the ether, ready to be accepted uncritically by the legions of righteously indignant keyboard warriors that lurk around social media as piranhas around a fresh carcass. But, for future reference at least, it would be nice to have the details of the offense unpacked. Are outhouses racist now? Are zombies? Or was it perhaps the overalls in which the zombie was dressed? Moreover, if any of these are now redolent of something sinister, at what point was this association held to be operative? A popular cartoon from 2006 depicted a latrine standing in the middle of the desert, on its outer wall the words “Bush Presidential Library.” Was this “racist,” or is this one of those timeless truths that were only discovered in 2009?
The float’s maker has insisted that the zombie represented himself and not the president. “I’ve got my bibs on, my walker, I’m covering my ears and I’m turning a bit green; I intended it to look like a zombie who has had enough,” he explained. Unsurprisingly, the NAACP didn’t buy it. “Looking at the float, that message absolutely did not come through,” the president of the outfit’s Iowa and Nebraska chapters griped. Fair enough. Arguendo, let’s presume that some of the spectators misunderstood the piece and believed that the president of the United States was being compared to a toilet-dwelling zombie. Again: Who cares? Are we now so hopelessly epicene that we expect federally funded conflict-resolution teams to swoop in on the hinterlands if the locals mutter too loudly about the government? I rather hope that we are not.
Frankly, as superficially appealing as they might sound, appeals to “the dignity of the office” are invariably prissy, serving more often than not as a means by which humorless partisans might grumble about their team’s being dinged without appearing hypersensitive. Indeed, far from damaging the national fabric, astringent mockery of the powerful is a healthy and necessary thing — a source of valuable catharsis that serves also as a canary in the proverbial coal mine. When I see the most powerful man in the country being not only mocked, but hanged and burned in effigy too, my first thought is less “gosh, how awful” than “wow, is this a free country or what?” A historical rule of thumb: If a ragtag group of political dissenters can simulate the violent execution of the head of the executive branch and not be so much as scratched as a result, the country is a free one. Who cares if a few of our more delicate sorts reach for the smelling salts?
It is always tempting to believe one’s own time to be particularly interesting or fractious, but there is little in politics that is genuinely new. Sharp and violent denunciations of the executive branch have been a feature of American life since the republic’s first days. Before the Revolution, the colonists routinely hanged likenesses of unpopular royal representatives, including King George III; Andrew Oliver, the Massachusetts Distributor of Stamps; and the loyalist Supreme Court justice, Thomas Hutchinson. Afterward, having dispensed with the old guard, Americans took to lambasting the new, among them George Washington, who had effected the king’s defeat; Thomas Jefferson, who had authored the charter of separation; and James Madison, who had drafted the lion’s share of the new Constitution. Chief Justice John Jay’s 1795 treaty with the British was so wildly unpopular among the Jeffersonians that Jay reported being able to travel from Boston to Philadelphia by the light of his burning effigies. Later, during the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln was subjected to the treatment. In one form or another, most presidents have been.
The modern era has served as no exception to the rule. During his two terms, George W. Bush was the object of considerable opprobrium, his likeness being frequently hanged, knived in the forehead, and even assassinated on prime-time television.
At the height of the Left’s umbrage, progressive heroes Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield went so far as to take a twelve-foot effigy of Bush on a national tour, setting fire to it at each stop to the audience’s hearty cheers. Ben and Jerry make ice cream, not apple pie. But their barnstorming road trip could not have been more American. There are few things more indicative of human liberty than the ability to castigate power with impunity — up to and including the moment of offense. “To learn who rules over you,” Voltaire suggested, “simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” Is Barack Obama to be a ruler?
