Macy’s Dumps Trump, De Blasio Reviews NYC Contracts

You see how our political system welcomes any outsider? You see the tolerance for diversity — of thought?

From a cheering Reuters:

Macy’s cuts ties with Trump, New York City reviews contracts

By Nathan Layne | July 1, 2015

July 1 (Reuters) – Macy’s Inc said on Wednesday it would end its business relationship with Donald Trump, and New York City said it was reviewing its contracts with the billionaire developer and U.S. presidential hopeful because of his comments insulting Mexicans.

Calling Trump’s remarks "disgusting and offensive," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement, "Trump’s comments do not represent the values of inclusion and openness that define us as New Yorkers."

Thankfully, Mr. de Blasio has never said anything untoward. (Sarcasm.) Still, whatever happened to the ‘gorgeous mosaic’?

Obama Calls Illegals ‘Gang-Bangers,’ Trump Hails Victory

So will Macy’s now ban Obama products? Will NBC stop carrying his water?

From the Daily Caller:

Obama Refers To Some Illegal Immigrants As ‘Gang-Bangers’ During Town Hall

By Al Weaver | July 1, 2015

During a town hall in Madison, Tennessee Wednesday, President Barack Obama referred to some illegal immigrants as “gang-bangers,” adding further that those criminal migrants should be deported “as quickly as possible.” …

Obama said… “What we should be doing is setting up a smart, legal immigration system that doesn’t separate families, but does focus on making sure that people who are dangerous, people who are gang-bangers or criminals — that we’re deporting them as quickly as possible, that we’re focusing our resources there — that we’re focusing on a strong border…"

Of course, we now know that Obama’s administration has been freeing criminal illegal aliens from detention "as quickly as possible." Not deporting them.

State Withheld Hillary Emails Containing Classified Info

So Hillary lied when she claimed at her ‘not so pretty in grey’ UN ‘press conference that she never sent classified info. Where is the outrage? In fact, where is this even being reported outside of Fox News?

From Fox News:

State Dept. withholds ‘classified’ info from Clinton emails, despite claim of ‘no classified material’

July 1, 2015

A State Department spokesman said Wednesday that details from 25 emails were deemed classified and withheld from the 3,000-page trove of Hillary Clinton documents released overnight — despite the former secretary of state claiming she never sent classified material on her personal email.

State Department spokesman John Kirby acknowledged at a briefing that details from the 25 emails are now considered "classified." The messages were released, with those portions redacted.

Hillary ‘Edited’ Emails Before Giving Them To State Dept

Plus, the woman now in charge of Hillary’s emails at State was formerly in charge of Lois Lerner’s emails at the IRS. What could go wrong?

But first here is an editorial by the Washington Examiner staff that contains more actual news than the usual AP article:

Yes, Clinton lied about her emails

July 1, 2015

… Americans learned this spring that Hillary Clinton, in contravention of federal records rules and current law, conducted all her State Department business using a private email address, housed in a server at her home in Westchester County, N.Y. But not to worry — the former secretary of state swore that she had diligently preserved and passed to the State Department every email she had written in the course of her job…

[But] it turns out that this is not true.

Millennials Want To Leave The America The Left Created

The simple truth is the left has done everything it can destroy any love we might have for our country. Any pride in our culture, our history, our traditions and achievements.

From Breitbart:

Poll: Obama Millennials Want to Leave the America They Created

By Ben Shapiro | July 1, 2015

A new poll from TransferWise shows that 35 percent of those born in the United States would consider ditching their home country to live elsewhere; that number skyrockets among those aged 18-34, the so-called millennials, 55 percent of whom said they would think of taking off if given the chance.

Most of those millennials cite economics as a chief factor in their desire to leave: 43 percent of men and 38 percent of women said they’d leave if they could get paid more in another country.

Young Republicans Lose Millennials Over Gay Marriage

Maybe the GOP should just say: ‘To hell with the Millennials. Get back to us when you’ve grown up.’

From The Hill:

Young Republicans say party risks losing millennials after gay marriage ruling

By Kevin Cirilli | July 2, 2015

Millennial Republicans are urging GOP leaders to adopt an inclusive tone on gay marriage following last week’s Supreme Court ruling. They argue that combative rhetoric risks alienating a new generation of voters who could abandon Republican candidates over the issue.

“Dignity, respect and fairness are a huge part of what this generation wants to see in this debate,” said Alex Smith, executive director of the College Republican National Committee.

And yet they won’t afford ‘dignity respect or fairness’ to anyone who opposes gay marriage. By the way, Rand Paul also opposes the Supreme Court’s decision.

Episcopalians Vote To Allow ‘Gay Weddings’ In Churches

Meanwhile, the Catholic Church is roundly mocked and scorned for its (alleged) homosexual priest problem. Why is that?

From a cheering Associated Press:

Episcopalians Vote to Allow Same-Sex Weddings in Churches

July 1, 2015

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Episcopalians voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to allow religious weddings for same-sex couples, solidifying the church’s embrace of gay rights that began more than a decade ago with the pioneering election of the first openly gay bishop.

The vote came in Salt Lake City at the Episcopal General Convention, just days after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide. It passed in the House of Deputies, the voting body of clergy and lay participants at the meeting. The House of Bishops had approved the resolution Tuesday by 129-26 with five abstaining…

Since they were in Salt Lake City, why didn’t they just vote to allow polygamous marriages as well, while they were at it.

1 In 5 Say Clergy Should Be Forced To Do Gay Weddings

This is what ‘tolerance’ gets you. And it’s only the beginning.

From The Blaze:

The Shocking Proportion of Americans Who Believe That ‘Religious Institutions or Clergy’ Should Be Forced to Perform Gay Weddings

By Billy Hallowell | July 1, 2015

A new survey conducted in the wake of the Supreme Court’s legalization of same-sex marriage last Friday found that 19 percent — or one in five Americans — believe that “religious institutions or clergy should be required to perform same-sex marriages.” More specifically, 26 percent of Americans under the age of 40 believe that churches and clergy should be forced to preside over gay nuptials.

Because young people are so ‘tolerant’. And they want to force other people to be ‘tolerant,’ too.

The survey, conducted by the Barna Group, a polling firm that studies religion, also found that 94 percent of evangelicals oppose legalization of same-sex marriage, with only 2 percent expressing support for the measure.

DOJ: Students Must Use Restrooms Based On Gender ID

Back in 1972, when Title IX was enacted, there were probably some rightwing troglodytes who joked about this being one of its outcome. What fools they were.

From a cheering Associated Press:

Officials: Students’ gender identity determines restroom use

July 1, 2015

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department says in a court filing that transgender students must be allowed to use the restroom that corresponds with their gender identity. The department says in a statement of interest filed Monday that failure to do so amounts to sex discrimination under Title IX of the U.S. Education Amendments of 1972.

Title IX was just a section of the Education Amendments of 1972. It has been almost as abused as the 14th Amendment. It’s original purpose had nothing to do with bathrooms.

Polygamous Montana Trio Applies For Wedding License

Note that our hero’s application has not yet been denied. In fact, it might not be denied, since he is threatening to sue if it is. And he has already contacted the ACLU. And most counties can’t afford to go up against the ACLU.

From a smiling Associated Press:

Polygamous Montana trio applies for wedding license

By MATT VOLZ | July 1, 2015

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — … Nathan Collier and his wives Victoria and Christine applied at the Yellowstone County Courthouse in Billings on Tuesday in an attempt to legitimize their polygamous marriage.

Montana, like all 50 states, outlaws bigamy — holding multiple marriage licenses — but Collier said he plans to sue if the application is denied.

Naturally. (We will later learn that he has already contacted the ACLU.)

"It’s about marriage equality," Collier told The Associated Press Wednesday.

NOAA: July 4th Fireworks Cause Dangerous Air Pollution

Why would the left want to put a damper on the celebration of the Fourth Of July. (And never mind the studies that show the Fourth can cause people to vote Republican for years.)

From Salon:

Those 4th of July fireworks spectaculars are causing huge spikes in dangerous air pollution

By Lindsay Abrams | June 30, 2015

[A]ccording to a new study from scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, that includes celebrating our nation’s independence with fireworks displays, which cause levels of harmful particle pollution to spike significantly each July 4th.

[NOAA] used observations taken from 315 air quality monitoring sites around the U.S. between 1999 and 2013. Without fail, they found that from around 9 to 10 p.m. each Independence Day, concentrations of fine particulate matter, or PM2.5, surged, teetering on the edge of the upper limit of what the EPA considers to be safe (and in some locations, wildly surpassing it).

Email Dump Reveals Out Of Touch, Incompetent Hillary

Given this is a short week, this is pretty close to a patented last Friday evening document dump. And it gets extra points for coming right before a holiday weekend.

From the Daily Mail:

Email bombshells from Hillary’s secret account show she didn’t know when cabinet meetings were held, was dumbfounded by a fax machine and emailed aides to fetch her iced tea

By David Martosko | 1 July 2015

On Tuesday the State Department released the first in a series of document-dumps comprising about 3,000 of the 55,000 pages Clinton turned over to State late last year…

The full version of this article goes into exquisite and hilarious detail about Hillary’s incompetence and out of touch-ness. But it also provides a nice summary of the main discoveries so far:

Dems Want Domestic TerroriProbe After SC Shootings

Plus, Andrew Young, who walked with MLK, Jr, says the problem isn’t the Confederate flag.

But first there’s this from a cheering Roll Call:

Democrats Want Domestic Terrorism Probe After Charleston Shootings

By Niels Lesniewski | June 30, 2015

The Charleston, S.C., shootings have prompted six Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to push for hearings on domestic terrorism. Spearheaded by Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and the top Democrat on the committee, Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont, the senators point to statements by alleged shooter Dylann Roof before the massacre at the black church.

“If this same act had been perpetrated by someone claiming a desire to harm Americans in the service of Islamist principles, it would immediately be labeled an act of terror,” the senators write.

US, Cuba Agree To Establish Full Diplomatic Relations

Didn’t everyone in the media assure us it would be a long time, maybe even forever, before we would establish full diplomatic relations with Cuba? After all, Congress would have to approve that. And yet here we are. And nobody in Congress is going to do anything to stop him.

From the Wall Street Journal:

U.S., Cuba Reach Agreement to Establish Full Diplomatic Relations

By Felicia Schwartz, José de Córdoba and Carol E. Lee | July 1, 2015

WASHINGTON—The U.S. and Cuba have reached an agreement to restore diplomatic relations and reopen embassies in each other’s capitals, a senior administration official said Tuesday, the biggest step yet toward ending a half century of enmity between the two countries.

What a beautiful thing. And just as we are about to celebrate our nation’s freedom from British tyranny.

Black Activist Put Confederate Flag On Black Memorial

This is what comes from mindless hysteria. And a news media that does everything it can to fan it.

First, there was this breathless report on the latest hate crime from the Boston Globe:

Confederate flag hung from Boston memorial for black soldiers

By Niko Emack-Bazelais and Jennifer Smith |  June 29, 2015

A Confederate battle flag was attached Sunday night to a Boston memorial that commemorates one of the first all-black regiments to fight for the union during the Civil War, hanging there for over an hour before a woman removed it.

Melissa Carino, 37, of Lowell said she saw the flag hanging from the Robert Gould Shaw and Massachusetts 54th Regiment Memorial across the street from the State House at about 8 p.m.
