Hillary Campaign In NH Controls News Media With Rope

the real question is, why bother? Or were they afraid the news media would try to get Hillary’s autograph or even rip off her clothes for souvenirs?

From a highly amused CNN:

Clinton campaign corrals media

By Dan Merica | July 6, 2015

Gorham, New Hampshire (CNN) – Hillary Clinton’s campaign used a rope to keep journalists away from the candidate on Saturday while she walked in this small town’s July Fourth parade. The ensuing photos of journalists, including a CNN reporter, being somewhat dragged by a thin white rope as Clinton walked down Main Street caught fire online…

But campaign aides said they brought the rope out because they feared the press scrum of around a dozen reporters and photojournalists would obstruct the view of New Hampshire voters attending the parade.

Hillary Reassures ‘Gay’ Child In (Staged?) Facebook Photo

What a tear-jerking story. And we believe it, too. It certainly wasn’t staged.

From a cheering New York Times:

Hillary Clinton Reassures Gay Youth in Viral Facebook Photo

By LIAM STACK | July 4, 2015

Hillary Rodham Clinton offered moral support to a distraught gay youth who shared his anxiety about his future in a viral photograph posted on the Humans of New York Facebook page, telling him on Friday that it would be “amazing.” The boy, who is not named in the photo, is shown frowning and holding his head in his hands while sitting on a stoop.

“I’m homosexual, and I’m afraid about what my future will be and that people won’t like me,” he said, according to the caption.

And we believe all this, too.

Bakers Must Pay $135K To Lesbians; Put Under Gag Order

Notice this isn’t even a court ruling. It’s a bureaucrat ruling from the Bureau of Labor and Industries, whatever that is. Who then went on to forbid them from talking about the case.

From the ABC Portland, OR affiliate, KATU:

Final order: Sweet Cakes bakery must pay $135,000 to lesbian couple

July 2, 2015

PORTLAND, Ore.  — The owners of a Gresham bakery must pay $135,000 to a lesbian couple who were refused service more than two years ago, the Bureau of Labor and Industries ruled Thursday…

In January, a judge ruled that Sweet Cakes by Melissa unlawfully discriminated against a same-sex couple by refusing to bake a cake for their wedding. The final order awards a combined $135,000  for emotional damages to the victims, Rachel Bowman-Cryer [sic] and her wife, Laurel…

Just imagine the emotional toll of having to go to another cake store.

SF Shooter Claims Accident, Knew SF Was Sanctuary City

Plus, a four-time deported illegal immigrant murdered wife with hammer in Texas.

But first, from the ABC San Francisco affiliate, KGO:

Man accused in San Francisco Pier 14 shooting admits to crime

By Cornell Barnard | July 05, 2015

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — In an interview… on ABC7 News, [Francisco Sanchez,] the man accused of shooting and killing a young woman at San Francisco’s Pier 14 admitted to the crime and talked about where he got the gun. …

Sanchez: "Yes."
Barnard: "You did shoot her?"
Sanchez: "Mm hm," he said with a nod…

Don’t worry, he’ll still skate. This confession just shows he’s crazy.

Sanchez tells ABC7 News that the shooting was an accident.

SF Refuses To Hand Over (Alleged) Illegal Shooter To ICE

Of course, as far as the AP is concerned, the real news is that Donald Trump is trying to exploit this tragedy to advance his political agenda. A Democrat would never do that.

From an outraged (at Mr Trump) Associated Press:

Suspect in shooting of San Francisco tourist has extensive criminal record

July 4, 2015

San Francisco – A man suspected in the shooting death of a woman at a busy San Francisco tourist destination has seven felony convictions and has been deported five times, most recently in 2009, a federal agency said on Friday.

Notice that the AP couldn’t be bothered to tell us any details about his past convictions. But even so, how is it possible that a felon had a gun? That is against the law!

Dominican Republic Plans To Deport All Illegal Haitians

Instead of asking every candidate about Donald Trump’s remarks, why isn’t the news media asking about this? If the Dominican Republican can deport illegal aliens from the country next door, why can’t we?

From an outraged New York Times:

Dominican Plan to Expel Haitians Tests Close Ties

By AZAM AHMED and SANDRA E. GARCIA | July 4, 2015

SABANETA, Dominican Republic — … That is changing now. A government plan that could deport tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people of Haitian descent from the Dominican Republic has started to tear at the unity that once bound this place, forcing residents to pick a side…

[M]uch of the country… is split, creating a patchwork of sympathy, prejudice and resentment born of crowded schools, competition for jobs and a beleaguered health care system.

AP: Mass Unemployment, Lower Wages Is ‘New Normal’

The AP’s subtle point here is we are supposed to accept Obama’s failed economy as the ‘new normal.’ There’s nothing that can be done about it. And certainly none of this is Obama’s fault.

From the whirling dervishes at the Associated Press:

AP: Mass Unemployment, Lowered Wages The New ‘Normal’ Economy

July 4, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — Even after another month of strong hiring in June and a sinking unemployment rate, the U.S. job market just isn’t what it used to be.

There wasn’t any ‘strong hiring’ in June. More people gave up looking for work than got a job.

Pay is sluggish. Many part-timers can’t find full-time work. And a diminished share of Americans either have a job or are looking for one. Yet in the face of global and demographic shifts, this may be what a nearly healthy U.S.



Greeks Plan Possible Raid On Deposits To Avert Collapse

Can anyone point to any significant difference between the policies that got Greece where it is today and the policies espoused by Obama, Hillary and the rest of the Democrats? So why should we expect any different results?

First, from an unfazed Associated Press:

Finance minister resigns after decisive ‘no’ bailout vote


ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis resigned Monday, saying he was told shortly after Greece’s decisive referendum result that some other eurozone finance ministers and the country’s other creditors would appreciate his not attending the ministers’ meetings…

"I shall wear the creditors’ loathing with pride," Varoufakis said in his announcement.

Like lawyers, everybody hates creditors — until they need one.



Radical Left Threatens Democrats Over Iran Nuke Deal

Democrat Congressmen are being told they have better toe the line on the Iran nuke deal — or else. So where were they during the Obama-Trade deal?

From the Washington Free Beacon:

White House-Linked Dark Money Group Threatens Democrats on Eve of Nuke Deal

By Adam Kredo | July 4, 2015

A prominent progressive organization linked to the White House and claiming to work for dozens of like-minded groups is threatening to attack any congressional Democrat who objects to a final nuclear deal with Iran, even before the terms of any such agreement have been finalized, according to an email obtained by the Free Beacon. CREDO Action, the political arm of CREDO Mobile, declared this week in an secret email to journalists that it will punish congressional Democrats who fail to line up behind any deal sealed between the West and Iran…

For the record, CREDO is just the rebranded "Working Assets" operation, which was founded by the radical leftist Drummond Pike.

9 Dead, 47 Injured During Weekend Shootings In Chicago

Isn’t Chicago Obama and Hillary’s home town? Isn’t it run by Rahm Emanuel, who has worked for both of them? Doesn’t Chicago have the very kind of gun control laws that Obama and Hillary want to impose on the rest of the country?

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

9 dead, 47 injured in Fourth of July weekend shootings


Fourth of July weekend shootings have left nine people dead — including a 7-year-old boy — and at least 47 others injured since Thursday evening. Seven-year-old Amari Brown was killed in a shooting that also left a 26-year-old woman wounded late Saturday in the Humboldt Park neighborhood…

Apparently, there are still too many Confederate flags on display in Chicago.

Police said Sunday the bullet that fatally wounded 7-year-old Amari Brown on the Fourth of July was meant for his father… The boy’s father, Antonio Brown, is a ranking gang member with 45 previous arrests and was not cooperating with police as of Sunday afternoon as they tried to find his son’s killer, Chicago Police Supt.



White Americans Stole Barbecue From Indians, Africans

Plus, Obama and Hillary’s favorite news source, Al Jazeera, posted a Fourth of July video that mocks Americans as fat, fun-toting racists.

But first, from the UK’s Guardian:

Barbecue is an American tradition – of enslaved Africans and Native Americans

The traditional holiday cookout has its roots in the cooperation between black and indigenous peoples struggling to get or keep their freedom from colonialists

By Michael W Twitty [sic] | 5 July 2015

Barbecue is a form of cultural power and is intensely political… And, if America is about people creating new worlds based on rebellion against oppression and slavery, then barbecue is the ideal dish: it was made by enslaved Africans with inspiration and contributions from Native Americans struggling to maintain their independence… If anything, both in etymology and culinary technique, barbecue is as African as it is Native American and European, though enslaved Africans have largely been erased from the modern story of American barbecue…

Sadly, Mr.

AP: The Jobless Rate Fell Because People Have Given Up

The AP must figure it’s safe to finally report these long known truths since we are right before a big summer holiday weekend and no one in the low information crowd is following the news.

From the Associated Press, of all places:

Solid hiring, lower US unemployment rate, but wages flat


WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in June, and the unemployment rate fell to 5.3 percent, a seven-year low. But wages failed to budge, and other barometers of the job market painted a mixed picture.

What’s this? Why is the AP, Obama’s foremost rosy scenarists so glum?

The economy gained 223,000 jobs last month, and the unemployment rate fell from 5.5 percent in May, the Labor Department said Thursday.

Twitter Has Only 49 Blacks Out Of Nearly 3K Employees

And Google and Facebook are just as ‘bad.’ But you can bet none of the Millennials who point to Twitter Google and Facebook as their most magnificent achievements will believe any of this.

From the Daily Mail:

Outrage as Twitter reveals just 49 of its 3,000 US employees are black

By Mia De Graaf | 1 July 2015

Twitter only has 49 black employees – out of 2,910 staff members in America. The 35 men and 14 women account for just 1.7 per cent of the firm’s US operation, which is 93.8 per cent white or Asian. It represents a stark lack of progress since last year, when senior executives promised to boost their number of African American staff from 2 per cent.

Oh, our sides.

Gay Attacks Staged; Black Man Threatened Black Church

Two articles that show just how eager people are to get victimhood status. Which is what happens when people are no longer equal before the law. When protected classes of people get preference over other classes because of their perceived victimhood.

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Authorities: Gay slur carved into Utah man’s arm was staged


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A man who reported someone beat him and carved a homophobic slur into his arm staged the attacks, authorities in rural Utah said Tuesday. Millard County Sheriff Robert Dekker said Rick Jones, 21, could face charges after officers investigating the series of reported attacks found inconsistencies in the evidence. The Delta man eventually acknowledged faking the harassment, Dekker said.
