Showing his Muslim stripes, Obama threw a hissy fit and stomped out of a Pentagon meeting about the bombing campaign against ISIS over remarks allegedly tying the Islamic State (ISIS) to Islam.

UMB (h/t Free) His tantrum reportedly took place in the afternoon of last week just prior to the president’s departure to Camp David. It was an informal briefing on the expanded bombing campaigns to take place in both Syria and Iraq. Halfway through the already very brief briefing, President Obama stood up clearly agitated, and walked out of the room.

The casually dressed Obama returned to the briefing moments later with a senior adviser alongside him, though his mood continued to indicate he was still very upset.

Obama Defines ‘Americans’ As People Who Enter The Country Illegally

Last night at an immigration activist dinner in Washington DC Obama took his shameless pandering and tenuous hold on reality to new despicable depths. Speaking before the mostly Latino crowd, the President actually said his best definition of an American is someone who enters this country illegally and leaches off the hard work of others.

Obama got the crowd warmed up by speaking a little Spanish and telling them he rode to the event with two illegal aliens in his limo. Amid the current Secret Service scandal, you have to wonder how illegal aliens get vetted so they can party like a rock star with the President. I wonder if he picked this pair up at the Home Depot.

Actually, as effed up as it sounds, the two illegal aliens are Congressional interns, but I’m still assuming they were picked up looking for day work.

Then, in reference to his DREAM Act, which indefinitely suspends the deportation of illegal immigrants, Obama gave his absurdly skewed view of what it means to be an American:

Because in the end, DREAMer is more than just a title, it’s a pretty good description of what it means to be an American.

Really? That’s what it means to be an American? Someone who comes to this country illegally and takes benefits and services they are not entitled to? Someone who lives in defiance of the law and doesn’t contribute to society? That’s right folks, the President of the United States defines an American as a law-breaking parasite.

The issue that threatens to unravel both the Constitution and the GOP

People wait to enter the Supreme Court in Washington, Monday, Oct. 6, 2014, as it begins its new term. The justices cleared the way Monday for an immediate expansion of same-sex marriage by unexpectedly and tersely turning away appeals from five states seeking to prohibit gay and lesbian unions. The court's order effectively makes gay marriage legal now in 30 states.  (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

With the 35-year marriage between Christians and the Republican Party already on the rocks, a U.S. Supreme Court with a majority of Republican appointees just put the religious liberty of every believer in the GOP base in unprecedented peril.

The GOP was already struggling to maintain the loyalty of its conservative base, and one of its last, best talking points was the importance of judicial appointments. Now that talking point has also been blown to smithereens. The John Roberts court gave us Obamacare, the narrowest wording possible when siding in favor of Hobby Lobby, got rid of the Defense of Marriage Act, and, on Monday, opened the floodgates for an onslaught against the First Amendment.

By deciding not to intervene in the fight it started last year, (in a divisive 5-4 ruling that Justice Antonin Scalia chastised for its “jaw-dropping assertion of judicial supremacy”) the Supremes gave the green-light to a full-blown constitutional crisis, the likes of which threatens to tear the GOP apart at the seams.

There are two reasons — one constitutional and the other political — why this has the potential to be far more explosive than even Roe v. Wade:

Constitutionally speaking, redefining marriage and morality has already proven it will also include redefining free speech, religious liberty, and private property rights as we’ve known them since the dawn of the republic. Already this year, we’re seeing an unprecedented assault on these cherished traditions by the same people who promised us the new “tolerance” wouldn’t cost anybody else their rights. The examples are legion and would require a whole separate column to chronicle. They even include a military court martial for those who believe in marriage as we’ve always known it.

Political Correctness Governs Ebola Response

Folks, I must tell you that I’m a little — not conflicted, but I’m guarded here. The news on Ebola, if done the wrong way — and of course I don’t do things the wrong way — but if done the wrong way, could create — I don’t want to even say the word “panic,” but some people are beginning to. And I think it’s predictable that it’s gonna happen.

We’ve had a Missouri doctor from Springfield who flew into Atlanta in full hazmat gear to raise consciousness to his belief that the CDC has no idea what they’re doing, and if they do know what they’re doing, then they’re lying to us. But he’s chalking it up to incompetence.

I’m telling you, it’s incompetence. Now, it may be some informed incorrectness, but there’s also political correctness, which is guiding all of this as I spent many, many minutes yesterday detailing. And I’m gonna give you more evidence of that today. It’s a combination of incompetence and political correctness, but it’s a chicken-and-egg thing. Which breeds which? Is it political correctness, which leads to incompetence, or does the incompetence come first? And, at this point, we may be running out of time to draw any distinction there.

We just have to deal with the reality that people in these time-honored places, these institutions, like the CDC, we’ve always put implicit trust that people there are the best this country has to do what needs to be done there. We’ve thought that about the Secret Service. And now we’re questioning all of this, legitimately so. We are questioning whether or not we’ve got the best. We know we have a president who’s totally unqualified. We have a president who has never done anything and yet believes he is the smartest and the best and the wisest and whatever. And it’s a dangerous combination.

Steve Wynn once again is out there talking about he just can’t believe that this country has elected somebody so unqualified for this job. And it all starts there. If you have somebody unqualified in that job, the people they are gonna put in these very important jobs, these institutions, like the FDA, like the Centers for Disease Control, they are also gonna be incompetent because these people, especially those governed by political correctness — competence is not even a factor when it comes to political correctness. Competence is the last thing you look at in filling positions or coming up with policy ideas.

By definition, political correctness, competence cannot possibly be used because competence means better at it than somebody else or very good at it, and that is not permitted. We’re not to have these kinds of great differences. We’re not supposed to have people super-qualified, really, really good the things, because that humiliates those who aren’t as good, and we don’t want to hurt their feelings. So we put people who aren’t as good, aren’t as qualified in positions of authority to make them feel better, to show that we can be fair, to show that we understand equality and all this gunk, and it’s how you end up in situations such as those that we are finding ourselves in now.

President Obama insisted that his economic policies are “on the ballot” this fall, thwarting Democratic attempts to distance themselves from the president ahead of November 4.

Delivering a speech on the economy at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management in Evanston, Ill., Obama said although he is not on the ballot, his policies are.

“I’m not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that,” Obama said. “But make no mistake: These policies are on the ballot, every single one of them.”

“Transgender” is a Mental Illness and Should be Treated as such: Former Johns Hopkins Chief Psychiatrist

A mental illness, not a "lifestyle."

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, who is currently Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at the world-famous hospital, also said that sex changes were “biologically impossible” and that those doctors who “promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.”

In addition, he said, “transgenderism is a mental disorder that merits treatment” like society would treat other mental disorders, and it should not be catered to by the media or the medical profession in the way that it is.

Dr. McHugh, who is the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in an article in the Wall Street Journal titled “Transgender Surgery Isn’t the Solution”, in which he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’”—the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.

In support of his opinion, he pointed to a recent study which showed that the suicide rate among “transgendered” people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among normal people.

Dr. McHugh also pointed out studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70–80 percent “spontaneously lost those feelings”—implying that a lot of this “transgenderism” was in fact twisted adults projecting these feelings onto children.

Obamacare Now Pays for Gender Reassignment

Published on: August 25, 2014

Devin Payne had gone years without health insurance—having little need and not much money to pay for it.

Then Payne, who had a wife and four children, realized she could no longer live as a man.

In her early 40s, she changed her name, began wearing long skirts and grew out her sandy blond hair. And she started taking female hormones, which caused her breasts to develop and the muscle mass on her 6-foot one-inch frame to shrink.

The next step was gender reassignment surgery. For that, Payne, who is now 44, said she needed health coverage. “It is not a simple, easy, magical surgery,” said Payne, a photographer who lives in Palm Springs. “Trying to do this without insurance is a big risk. Things can go wrong … not having the money to pay for it would be awful.”

Payne learned in the fall that she might qualify for subsidies through the state’s new insurance marketplace, Covered California, because her income fell under the limit of $46,000 a year. She eagerly signed up in March for a Blue Shield plan for about $230 a month, and began making preparations for the surgery that would change her life.

Scenes from the feminist implosion (Trannies Attack Feminists!)

If you want to see why modern feminism is in crisis, look no further than Michelle Goldberg’s piece in the latest New Yorker.

She describes how transgender activists are protesting the gatherings of the group “RadFem Responds” with “acts of vandalism — stealing electrical cables, cutting water pipes, keying cars in the parking lot, and spray-painting a six-foot penis, and the words ‘Real Women Have D–ks,’ on the side of the main kitchen tent.”

Wait. What?

The radical feminists are under attack because they don’t accept in their ranks people born as biological men but now convinced they’re women. The RadFemmers argue that the transgendered just aren’t oppressed enough to gain membership.

Goldberg explains their position: “Anyone born a man retains male privilege in society; even if he chooses to live as a woman — and accept a correspondingly subordinate social position — the fact that he has a choice means that he can never understand what being a woman is really like.”

Soldier forced out of Army for serving Chick-fil-A, reading Hannity book

660-Nathan-Sommers.jpg

A member of the U.S. Army Band said he was forced out of the U.S. Army for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his personal car, serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at a party and reading books written by conservative authors like Sean Hannity, a federal lawsuit alleges.

Master Sergeant Nathan Sommers, a 25-year veteran of the military and a decorated soloist in the U.S. Army Band Chorus, claims he was forcibly retired from the Army due to his religious and conservative political beliefs. I first told you about Sommers last year in a series of exclusive Fox News reports.

John Wells, an attorney representing Sommers, called him a “true hero” who lost his career while trying to stand up for his religious beliefs.” He alleges that he drew the ire of his superiors because of his belief in traditional marriage.

The American Left vs. God-Given Rights

In his opinion declaring Virginia’s marriage law unconstitutional, Judge Henry Floyd of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit summarized what he perceived to be the basic disagreement between the opponents and proponents of the law.

“The opponents and proponents agree that marriage is a fundamental right,” the judge wrote. “They strongly disagree, however, regarding whether that right encompasses the right to same-sex marriage. The opponents argue that the fundamental right to marry belongs to the individual, who enjoys the right to marry the person of his or her choice. By contrast, the proponents point out that, traditionally, states have sanctioned only man-woman marriages. They contend that, in light of this history, the right to marry does not include a right to same-sex marriage.”Neither of these arguments — as summarized by the judge — is true.

Even if states had historically approved of same-sex marriage, that would not make such marriages a right. After all, some states had historically approved of letting some people hold other people in slavery — which was not a right, but rather a profound violation of the God-given rights of the people who were enslaved.

The truth is all true rights come from God.

Here’s John Kerry Riding a Pink Bicycle During the Gaza Crisis

It’s the sort of picture you have to see to believe.

Yes, that appears to be Secretary of State John Kerry riding a pink bicycle.

The photo was snapped Sunday in Nantucket by visitor Owen Perkins, National Review reported.

While Kerry was allegedly astride the pastel-hued bike (Perkins said Kerry “wasn’t too stoked” to be photographed), major developments were underway in the Gaza Strip, where Israel had pulled back ground forces but continued airstrikes.

Homsexual Lobby Preaches ‘Paedophilia is natural and normal for males’

“Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” said the presentation. “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”

Some yellowing tract from the Seventies or early Eighties, era of abusive celebrities and the infamous PIE, the Paedophile Information Exchange? No. Anonymous commenters on some underground website? No again.

The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge.

Other presentations included “Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis,” and “Danger and difference: the stakes of hebephilia.”

Hebephilia is the sexual preference for children in early puberty, typically 11 to 14-year-olds.

Another attendee, and enthusiastic participant from the floor, was one Tom O’Carroll, a multiple child sex offender, long-time campaigner for the legalisation of sex with children and former head of the Paedophile Information Exchange. “Wonderful!” he wrote on his blog afterwards. “It was a rare few days when I could feel relatively popular!”

Last week, after the conviction of Rolf Harris, the report into Jimmy Savile and claims of an establishment cover-up to protect a sex-offending minister in Margaret Thatcher’s Cabinet, Britain went into a convulsion of anxiety about child abuse in the Eighties. But unnoticed amid the furore is a much more current threat: attempts, right now, in parts of the academic establishment to push the boundaries on the acceptability of child sex.

The Judiciary and Same-Sex Marriage Contagion

In the case of same-sex marriage, informational and emotional cascades have fostered Judicial Cascades. i.e., the carefully manufactured, relentless media narrative of approval overwhelms judges who then easily buy into the “Don’t find yourself on the wrong side of history” tidal wave.

Because of the internet and our media top-heavy lives, none of us can escape the cascades of the mostly left-leaning media. It’s just a fact of life. And not only do otherwise thinking, reasoning people become subject to these cascades, the progressive base becomes more emboldened, more self-justified as they falsely sense the entire world, other than knuckle-dragging Neanderthal deniers, bowing to their peculiar orthodoxy.

But this is precisely why the current same sex-marriage push is so urgent. Proponents only hope is to change society quickly with sophistry and emotion through judicial fiat while the window of opportunity is still propped open. They know it won’t stay open forever.

Certainly they have witnessed how the Global Warming narrative is unraveling, and how the ongoing informational and emotional cascades now produce diminishing returns, serving only to keep their most staunch supporters from straying from global warming orthodoxy. New recruits are nearly impossible to come by.

Soon, the same will be true with same-sex marriage. As more and more legitimate social science studies are conducted, and personal stories from maturing children who have been medically engineered for same-sex marriages emerge, the progressive’s very positive narrative will become more and more difficult to control and sustain. It won’t be pretty.

Obama Sues Wisconsin Company, Says English-Language Requirement is ‘Discrimination’

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a federal agency tasked with enforcing workplace discrimination laws, is suing a private American business for firing a group of Hispanic and Asian employees over their inability to speak English at work, claiming that the English-language requirement in a U.S. business constitutes “discrimination.”

Judicial Watch reported Tuesday that the government is accusing Wisconsin Plastics, Inc. of violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on “national origin.” The government argues this includes the “linguistic characteristics of a national origin group.”

Irene Garcia, the blog editor and Spanish media liaison for Judicial Watch, called the EEOC’s accusation “ludicrous.”

“That’s ludicrous and an overreaching of government,” Garcia told CNSNews.com. “If you are a private company in the United States, you should be able to require your employees to speak English.”

Palestinians’ top priority defined in new poll – killing all the jews

The Washington Institute for Near East Policy released a stunning new Palestinian opinion poll last week. The headline finding was that 60% of all Palestinians, including majorities in both the West Bank and Gaza, now openly say their goal isn’t a two-state solution, but “reclaiming all of historic Palestine, from the river to the sea” – aka eradicating Israel. Yet that isn’t actually news for anyone who’s been paying attention: A 2011 poll, for instance, found that even among ostensible supporters of two states, 66% didn’t consider this a permanent solution, but only a step toward the ultimate goal of a single Palestinian state between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea (a finding the new poll replicates). In short, Palestinians are now merely saying aloud what they believed all along.

Thus I was more struck by another finding: Contrary to the international dogma that Israeli construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem is the biggest obstacle to peace, Palestinians didn’t consider that top priority. Their main complaint, by a large margin, was Israel’s unwillingness to free Palestinian terrorists – so they could kill again.
Asked what they considered “the one thing Israel could do to convince Palestinians that it really wants peace and a two-state solution,” fully 45% said Israel “should release more Palestinian prisoners.” That’s more than twice the proportion who chose either a settlement freeze beyond the security fence (19.7%) or willingness to share Jerusalem (17.3%); indeed, it’s significantly more than both combined. The last-place choice (13.8%) was increasing Palestinian freedom of movement and cracking down on settler attacks – two other issues the world deems high priority.
If the Palestinians’ goal were truly a state alongside Israel with its capital in East Jerusalem, one would expect the opposite order of priorities. After all, significantly expanding settlements due to be evacuated under any deal (as opposed to settlements expected to remain Israeli) would make a two-state solution harder to implement. In contrast, jailing terrorists in no way undermines a two-state solution, and might even facilitate it: By reducing Palestinian terror, it increases Israeli willingness to make territorial concessions.
