Gallup: US Continues To ‘Shift Left’ On Key Moral Issues

So all those bitter clinger social conservatives had better shut up and move to the back of the bus. The rest of us have evolved.

From Gallup:

Americans Continue to Shift Left on Key Moral Issues

By Frank Newport | May 26, 2015

PRINCETON, N.J. — Americans are more likely now than in the early 2000s to find a variety of behaviors morally acceptable, including gay and lesbian relations, having a baby outside of marriage and sex between an unmarried man and woman. Moral acceptability of many of these issues is now at a record-high level.

And look at how much better the country is for it. What an amazing improvement.

This latest update on Americans’ views of the moral acceptability of various issues and behaviors is from Gallup’s May 6-10 Values and Beliefs survey… The upward progression… clearly points toward a higher level of acceptance of a number of behaviors.

Cleveland Agrees To Overhaul Cops Under DOJ Control

The agreement boils down to the same things at least 25 other police departments have now been forced to accept: Monitoring by the civil rights lawyers at the DOJ.

From a joyous Associated Press:

Cleveland, Justice Department announce police settlement

By MARK GILLISPIE | May 26, 2015

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland agreed to sweeping changes in how its police officers use force, treat the community and deal with the mentally ill, under a settlement announced Tuesday with the federal government that will put the 1,500-member department under an independent monitor…

That is, ‘independent’ of local authorities. But not independent of the civil rights division of the Department Of Justice or the Obama administration or the NAACP, ACLU and National Lawyers Guild.

Mayor Frank Jackson said the ambitious plan that was worked out over five months of negotiations with the U.S.

Clyburn: ‘Be Very Careful How You Treat This President!’

Mr. Clyburn is still whining about that (open) letter to the Iranian leaders and the invitation to Netanyahu? That is really being stuck on stupid.

From Breitbart:

Clyburn to GOP: ‘Be Very, Very Careful About How You Treat this President’

By Pam Key | May 26, 2015

Last week, Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) sat down with Voice of America host Carol Castiel and network congressional correspondent Cindy Saine and offered a warning to President Barack Obama’s Republican opposition while discussing the nuclear deal the president is pushing for with Iran.

When asked about the Iran deal Clyburn said: “Well yes, I think so. It’s one thing to review it. It’s something else to veto [it].

So Congressional reviews are okay, as long as they completely agree with the President.

WH: Fifth Circuit Misinterpreted Law In Amnesty Ruling

Exactly what law did the judges misinterpret? The law that says a President can re-write our laws?

From Breitbart:

White House: Fifth Circuit Judges Misinterpreted The Law On Immigration Decision

By Charlie Spiering | May 26, 2015

The White House reacted to the news that the Fifth Circuit court of appeals denied an appeal from the Obama administration to lift a stay on his executive amnesty plan, accusing two judges in the decision of interpreting the law incorrectly.

“Today, two judges of the Fifth Circuit chose to misinterpret the facts and the law in denying the government’s request for a stay,” White House spokesperson Brandi Hoffine said in a statement to Breitbart News.

That is rich, especially after the way Obama team lied their heads off to Judge Hanen about ‘the facts’ of the case.

Clinton Foundation Donor Inks Book Deal With Chelsea

Let’s hope Chelsea pays her ghostwriters better than her mother does. Especially, since she says she doesn’t care about money.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Clinton Foundation Donor Penguin Random House Announces Book Deal with Chelsea Clinton

By Thomas Novelly | May 26, 2015

Penguin Random House, a Clinton Foundation donor, announced its book deal with Chelsea Clinton last week. The book is being published by Philomel, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers. The publisher donated between $1,000 and $5,000, according to the Clinton Foundation website.

They got off cheap. But, then again, they are now facing huge losses on their advance to Chelsea.

A Clinton Foundation spokesman told the Washington Free Beacon the donation was made in 2007, well before Chelsea’s book advance was announced.

Hillary Approved $316B In Arms Deals For FDN Donors

Just wait until the Democrat base finds out Hillary approved hundreds of billions of dollars worth of arms sales for Clinton Foundation donors while she was Secretary Of State.

From the International Business Times:

Clinton Foundation Donors Got Weapons Deals From Hillary Clinton’s State Department

By David Sirota, Andrew Perez | May 26 2015

A consortium of American defense contractors led by Boeing would deliver $29 billion worth of advanced fighter jets to [the Saudis]. Israeli officials… complained to the Obama administration that this substantial enhancement to Saudi air power risked disrupting the region’s fragile balance of power. The deal appeared to collide with the State Department’s documented concerns about the repressive policies of the Saudi royal family.

But now, in late 2011, Hillary Clinton’s State Department was formally clearing the sale, asserting that it was in the national interest.

Bill Clinton Used Shell Company To Hide Consulting Fees

Bear in mind, this is a former President of the United States ‘doing consulting work.’ Remember when that office had dignity?

A reluctant random act of journalism from the Associated Press:

Bill Clinton company shows complexity of family finances

By STEPHEN BRAUN | May 26, 2015 

WASHINGTON (AP) — The newly released financial files on Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s growing fortune omit a company with no apparent employees or assets that the former president has legally used to provide consulting and other services, but which demonstrates the complexity of the family’s finances.

Note the AP’s headline. If a Republican was caught with a shell company to hide his consulting income, would the AP just call it ‘complexity’?

Because the company, WJC, LLC, has no financial assets, Hillary Clinton’s campaign was not obligated to report its existence in her recent financial disclosure report, officials with Bill Clinton’s private office and the Clinton campaign said.

2 Hillary Emails Listed By Hacker Missing From Release

How incompetent is Hillary? She can’t even do cover-ups right. Which is something we should have already known from all of her failed cover-ups in the past.

From the Daily Caller:

2 Of Hillary’s Libya Emails Are Missing

By Chuck Ross | May 26, 2015

Sidney Blumenthal emailed Hillary Clinton at least two intelligence reports about Libya which were not included in the trove of 296 emails released by the State Department on Friday.

Clinton has claimed that in December she turned over all official government emails she sent or received from her personal account while in office. In turn, the agency has claimed it turned all Clinton emails related to Libya or Benghazi over to the House Select Committee investigating the Benghazi attack.

But a screenshot of Blumenthal’s email inbox, which the Romanian hacker Guccifer published in March 2013, shows two reports about Libya emailed to Clinton which were not released in Friday’s batch.

Marie Harf Promoted To Senior Advisor To Focus On Iran

This is not from a satire site. It was announced in an official statement John Kirby posted on Twitter. But for some odd reason it is not being reported anywhere but on Twitchy and Sputnik.

From Russia’s Sputnik News:

Kerry Promotes Marie Harf to Position of Senior Communications Advisor

May 27, 2015

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Harf previously served as deputy spokesperson for the State Department for just under two years, and has been acting spokesperson since her predecessor Jen Psaki left at the end of March 2015. “Starting June 1, [2015] Marie Harf will be beginning in a new role as Senior Advisor for Strategic Communications to Secretary Kerry,” State Department chief spokesperson John Kirby stated on Tuesday.

‘Great job Harf-ie!’ (For the record, Sputnik is an international news service launched run by Rossiya Segodnya, which is wholly owned and operated by the Russian government.

Five Taliban Swapped For Bergdahl Soon Free To Travel

Funny how little press this very short (one year) restriction on their travel got at the time of the deal last year.

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Travel ban ends for Guantanamo inmates swapped for Bergdahl

By DEB RIECHMANN | May 27, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — A one-year travel ban is expiring for five senior Taliban leaders held in U.S. detention at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, until they were released last year in exchange for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, raising the possibility that the five can move freely around the world as early as Monday…

U.S. officials have discussed with the Qataris the possibility of extending the travel ban after it expires on June 1. But so far, the White House has not publicly announced any new agreement with Qatar, meaning the five could leave the tiny nation on the Arabian Peninsula at the end of the month…

What a laugh.

AP: GOP Will ‘Feel Heat’ If SCOTUS Kills ACA Subsidies

Where the warnings when Obama-Care’s mandates eventually forced at least five million and probably as many as seven million people out of their old insurance plans? Did the media ever call that ugly?

From the always deeply concerned about the fate of the GOP Associated Press:

GOP likely to feel the heat if court decision guts Obamacare

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR | May 26, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Supreme Court ruling due in a few weeks could wipe out health insurance for millions of people covered by President Barack Obama’s health care law. But it’s Republicans — not White House officials — who have been talking about damage control.

The AP has updated their headline. It now reads: ”Ugly’ potential fallout from Supreme Court health care case.’ Now why should the AP care if things get ugly for the GOP?

(Non) Writers Of O-Care Say ‘Four Words’ Were Mistake

Some outrageous media malpractice from the New York Times:

Four Words That Imperil Health Care Law Were All a Mistake, Writers Now Say

By ROBERT PEAR | May 25, 2015

WASHINGTON — They are only four words in a 900-page law: “established by the state.” But it is in the ambiguity of those four words in the Affordable Care Act that opponents found a path to challenge the law, all the way to the Supreme Court.

There is nothing ambiguous about those four words. And that isn’t the only time the point is made in the law that only the states will establish subsidies.

How those words became the most contentious part of President Obama’s signature domestic accomplishment has been a mystery. Who wrote them, and why?

NYT Blames ‘Anti-Government’ GOP For Lost Black Jobs

In the original 2,062 words and 110 paragraphs NYT article Obama’s name never appears once.

From Breitbart:

NYT: Blacks Have Lost Jobs Due To ‘Anti-Government’ Republicans

By Dr. Susan Berry | May 25, 2015

The New York Times asserts that thousands of blacks who once had government union jobs now don’t, and some of the primary reasons for this unemployment are “strong anti-government and anti-tax sentiment” as well as attempts by Republicans to weaken public sector unions.

And never mind that these ‘anti-government’ and ‘anti-tax’ sentiments don’t seem to be changing anything. Since government has expanded and taxes have gone up under Obama. And, of course, the public sector unions have grown rather than be weakened. In fact, they are the only kind of unions that are growing.

(Now DOJ Run) Oakland’s Policy On Protests Is Protested

Note that the Stalinist National Lawyers Guild (and the ACLU) are telling the DOJ what to do. And the DOJ is then telling the Oakland police what to do. What a surprise, huh?

From an unquestioning Associated Press:

Protesters target Oakland policy on street demonstrations

May 25, 2015

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Police made arrests as demonstrators marched in downtown Oakland against the city’s new get-tough policy for monitoring street protests — the second such gathering in as many days.

Wait a minute. How could there be any social injustice in Oakland? Oakland is one of the more than two dozen police departments that is now run by the civil rights division of Obama’s Department Of Justice.

In fact, it was one of the first police departments taken over by the DOJ.

FL Crowd Attacks Officer During Arrest; Cop Killed In NO

Plus, the St. Louis Cardinals apologize for their mascot holding a sign sahying: ‘Police Lives Matter.’ But the world hasn’t gone crazy.

First from the NBC Orlando affiliate, WESH:

Police: Crowd attacked officer during arrest

May 25, 2015

MELBOURNE, Fla. — Police in Melbourne said one of their officers was attacked by a crowd as he tried to make an arrest Saturday. The officer approached Phoenix Low, 22, about an ordinance violation on New Haven Avenue, and Low became combative, police said. The officer tried to arrest Low, at which point he resisted and attempted to run, according to police.

Police said as the officer tried to place Low in handcuffs, “a crowd surrounded the officer and began to interfere with attempts to arrest Low by yelling, striking and pulling at the officer and the prisoner.” The officer used “less-lethal force” on the crowd.
