Judge Hears Arguments On Granting Chimps Human Rights

Maybe we should go back to doing medical experiments on prisoners. Solvey solvey.

From a deeply concerned BuzzFeed:

Judge Hears Arguments On Granting Chimpanzees Human Rights

By Mary Ann Georgantopoulos | May 27, 2015

A New York City judge heard arguments over the rights of two chimpanzees, Hercules and Leo, that animal rights advocates hope to free from Stony Brook University. Last month Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jaffe granted a hearing on the chimpanzees’ habeas corpus petition, leaving Stony Brook University to defend keeping them in captivity.

Habeas corpus is a legal petition that detainees use to seek relief from unlawful imprisonment, and by granting habeas corpus to chimps, Jaffe endorsed the idea that they deserve the rights of human beings.

So you can unlawfully imprison animals now?

Sharpton Asks If God Is Punishing Texas With Flooding

Did the Reverend think God was punishing New Orleans when Katrina hit? Or that He was punishing New Jersey and New York with Hurricane Sandy?

From the Daily Caller:

Al Sharpton Asks If God Is Punishing Texas With Torrential Rains, Flooding

By Chuck Ross | May 27, 2015

… The civil rights activist, tax evader, and frequent White House visitor invited listeners of his talk radio show to weigh in on the pressing question: 

Reverend Al Sharpton [tweeted]: "[Question Of The Day]: Do you think the Texas Flooding is related to climate control or God’s rebuke? Call 8775325797 or tweet me your thoughts."

Reverend Sharpton is a man of the cloth. Shouldn’t he be telling us which it is? (Of course, it could be both.

Marilyn Mosby Claims Her Twitter Account ‘Was Hacked’

Who can doubt her Twitter account was hacked? Just like Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account was hacked.

From the Daily Caller:

Marilyn Mosby Says Her Twitter Account Was Hacked And That She Did Not Endorse Anti-Cop Tweet

By Chuck Ross | May 28, 2015 

The office of Baltimore City state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby is claiming that her personal Twitter account was hacked and that she did not “favorite” [sic] a racially-charged tweet and another one calling the six Baltimore cops charged in the Freddie Gray case “thugs.”

Democrats seem to have the worst luck when it comes to social media. Even though we’re told they are masters at it.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly reported on the denial but also cast some doubt on the claim.

NYS Assembly Votes For ‘Single Payer’ Health Coverage

This is why it was so important to pass Obama-Care in a rush. The Democrats didn’t want the glitches ironed out. They wanted things to be so terrible the public would rise up and demand single-payer. And here it comes.

From a deliriously happy Associated Press:

NY Assembly votes for universal health coverage

By Michael Virtanen | May 27, 2015

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The New York Assembly voted 89-47 on Wednesday for legislation to establish publicly funded universal health coverage in a so-called single payer system.

Don’t worry, the (now) Republican controlled NY Senate will kill this bill. Just kidding. In fact, as we will learn (at the bottom of the piece) the Senate is working on its own version of this bill.

All New Yorkers could enroll.

Hillary Brings Out Southern Twang For 1st Stop In South

Harry Reid said Obama was electable because he is a ‘light-skinned African American with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.’ So why can’t Hillary turn her (phony) Southern accent on and off?

From the Weekly Standard:

Hillary Brings Back Southern Twang for South Carolina Visit

By DANIEL HALPER | May 27, 2015

Hillary Rodham Clinton, who was born in Illinois and represented New York in the U.S. Senate, has brought back her Southern accent for her speech today in South Carolina…

Which, coincidentally, was Hillary’s first campaign stop in the South since she announced. (But didn’t announce.)

Clinton was first lady of Arkansas when her husband was governor. It was there she appears to have first developed a Southern accent. That accent, however, quickly faded when she became first lady of the United States.

Clinton Charity Paid Blumenthal $10K/Mo To Help Pals

Clearly, Mr. Blumenthal was being paid for his charity work. Except he was only involved in Libya because he was trying to get lucrative building contracts for his and the Clintons’ cronies. But with the Clintons, charity begins at home.

From the Politico:

Clinton Foundation paid Blumenthal $10K per month while he advised on Libya

By Kenneth P. Vogel | May 28, 2015

Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime confidant of Bill and Hillary Clinton, earned about $10,000 a month as a full-time employee of the Clinton Foundation while he was providing unsolicited intelligence on Libya to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to multiple sources familiar with the arrangement.

That is $120,000 a year. And bear in mind that Blumenthal was only involved in Libya because he was trying to secure lucrative building contracts for his and the Clintons’ buddies.

Klayman Brings A RICO Suit Against Clinton Foundation

Granted, Mr. Klayman’s lawsuits against the Clintons haven’t gotten very far in the past. But still, it’s about time.

From the Washington Examiner:

Clinton Foundation hit with racketeering lawsuit

By Sarah Westwood | May 27, 2015

Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation have been hit with a racketeering lawsuit in Florida court.

It’s about time. After all, where are all the ‘good government’ groups, like the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW)?

Oh, that’s right. They are almost all run by Democrats. (CREW is run by a lawyer who worked for Biden, Schumer and John Conyers.) Besides, who wants to face an IRS audit?

The lawsuit, filed by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, includes a legal request to have the Florida judge seize the private server on which Hillary Clinton and her aides hosted their emails while she served as secretary of state.

LAT: FIFA Is ‘Imploding,’ 14 Charged, At Least 8 Arrested

This investigation has been going on for more than twenty years. Clearly the DOJ has their priorities in order.

From an irony-proof Los Angeles Times:

‘FIFA is imploding': 14 charged in corruption probe; at least 8 arrested

By Tina Susman and Kevin Baxter | May 27, 2015

Fourteen people, including high-ranking officials of the soccer governing body FIFA, were charged Wednesday in a more than $150-million racketeering and fraud scheme that prosecutors said had corrupted the world’s most popular sport while lining defendants’ pockets with millions of dollars.

$150 million? That is chump change compared to the Clinton crime family have hauled in just in speaking fees.

The charges, which coincided with raids in Zurich, Switzerland, and Miami, followed a three-year FBI investigation into alleged crimes that U.S.

Small Wealth Gap, High Illegals, Key To Safety For Cities

The propagandizing never stops. Even a seemingly innocuous article supposedly about ‘which is the safest city in the world’ has to advance the left’s agenda: bike lanes, income inequality and, of course, amnesty.

From the UK’s Guardian:

Which is the safest city in the world?

Emine Saner [sic] | 26 May 2015

According to the Safe Cities Index, put together by the Economist’s Intelligence Unit (EIU), the title of world’s safest goes to the city that is also the most populous: Tokyo. The EIU looked at a wide range of factors when putting together the index. It examined digital security, and considered the number of cyber attacks and how they were tackled.

Because that varies so much from city to city. (Not.)

It looked at the obvious area of personal safety, but also infrastructure security [sic]  – sanitation, roads, and management of natural disasters.

Obama Won’t Ask Supreme Court To Stay Amnesty Block

Why not? Just yesterday Obama said the Fifth Circuit judges clearly misinterpreted the law. Doesn’t he believe the case would be such a slam dunk after all?

From Reuters:

Obama administration will not seek Supreme Court stay on immigration action block

By Julia Edwards | May 27, 2015

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Justice Department will not ask the U.S. Supreme Court to stay an appellate court ruling that President Barack Obama’s move to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation should remain on hold, a spokesman said on Wednesday…

Nobody is being deported no matter what. (Something Reuters admits at the end of this piece.) The appellate court ruling just stops Obama from passing out any more work permits and Security Security cards. And only until it hears the administration’s appeal in July.

NIH Studies Discrimination Against LGBT Schizophrenics

Meanwhile, that Ebola vaccine can just discover itself.

From CNS News:

$52,293 NIH Study Aims to Reduce Discrimination of LGBT Schizophrenics by Convenience Store Clerks

By Melanie Hunter | May 27, 2015

(CNSNews.com) – The National Institutes of Health through its National Institute of Mental Health has awarded $52,293 in taxpayer funding to the Toronto-based Centre for Addiction and Mental Health to study how to reduce discrimination of lesbian, gay and transgender people with schizophrenia by members of the community they are in frequent contact with, like the “convenience store clerk.”

Isn’t this the same NIH that claimed they didn’t have enough money to try to develop an Ebola vaccine? (Due to ‘Republican cuts’ that never happened.) Apparently, all of the nation’s other health problems been solved, and now the NIH can focus on a minor problem for a tiny fraction of the population.

AFP: Iran Is Actually Quite Wonderful To Transgendered

No wonder Obama has such a soft spot for the Iranian leaders. They give the transgendered ‘free’ sex change operations, just like Obama-Care.

From the Agence France Presse:

Iran lawmakers consider bill to protect transgender people

27 May 2015

A bill that would provide better protection for transsexuals in Iran has been sent to researchers in parliament, the ISNA news agency quoted an official as saying on Tuesday. Under a fatwa or religious decree by the Islamic republic’s founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iran recognises transsexuality.

Has anyone ever seen this enlightened fatwa? Or is it like his supposed fatwa against building nuclear weapons?

Sex change operations are common, with part of the fees paid by the authorities.

Who knew? No wonder Obama has such a soft spot for the Iranian leaders.

New US LGBTI (For Intersex) Envoy Seeks Global Rights

Of course there is absolutely no chance that an US official flouting homosexuality will recruit terrorists like the evil Gitmo does. Or Obama would never allow it to happen.

From CNS News:

New U.S. LGBTI Envoy Seeking Global LGBTI Rights

By Penny Starr | May 26, 2015

(CNSNews.com) – Randy Berry [sic], the State Department’s first envoy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons, said on Tuesday he is leaving on a 15-country, five-week trip to encourage foreign governments to include protection for homosexuals in their constitutions.

Thank Gaia we have a new letter to add to LGBT. ‘I’ for ‘Intersex.’

Speaking at the United States Institution of Peace in Washington, D.C., ahead of a panel of gay rights activists from around the world, Berry said gay rights and human rights are “issues we hold very, very dear.”

‘Very, very dear.’ Unlike, say, the right to freedom of religion.

Military Mistakenly Ships Live Anthrax To Nine States

Anthrax that was supposed to have been made inactive was sent to labs in nine states, plus a base in South Korea.

From Reuters:

U.S. military mistakenly ships live anthrax to labs in nine states

By Phil Stewart and Sharon Begley | May 28, 2015

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK – The U.S. military mistakenly sent live anthrax bacteria to laboratories in nine U.S. states and a U.S. air base in South Korea, after apparently failing to properly inactivate the bacteria last year, U.S. officials said on Wednesday.

It was just a mistake. What a relief. We were worried that this might be another case of sudden jihad syndrome.

The Pentagon said there was no known suspected infection or risk to the public. But four U.S. civilians have been started on preventive measures called post-exposure prophylaxis, which usually includes the anthrax vaccine, antibiotics or both.

IRS Says Identity Thieves Stole Tax Info From 100,000+

Why would the IRS want to stop this? It’s a nice way to support two important voting blocs for the Democrat Party — people in prison and illegal aliens.

From ABC News:

IRS Says Thieves Stole Tax Info From 100,000

By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER | May 26, 2015

WASHINGTON — Sophisticated criminals used an online service run by the IRS to access personal tax information from more than 100,000 taxpayers, part of an elaborate scheme to steal identities and claim fraudulent tax refunds, the IRS said Tuesday.

The thieves accessed a system called "Get Transcript," where taxpayers can get tax returns and other filings from previous years. In order to access the information, the thieves cleared a security screen that required knowledge about the taxpayer, including Social Security number, date of birth, tax filing status and street address, the IRS said.
