Ex-Marine Convicted In ‘Sniper’ Trial Faces Life In Prison

From the Associated Press:

Ex-Marine convicted in ‘Sniper’ trial faces life in prison

By JAMIE STENGLE | February 25, 2015

STEPHENVILLE, Texas (AP) — A Texas jury has rejected the insanity defense of a former Marine in the deaths of famed "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle and another man.

After a two-week trial in which jurors heard testimony about defendant Eddie Ray Routh’s erratic behavior, including statements about anarchy, the apocalypse and pig-human hybrids, they convicted Routh Tuesday night in the deaths of Kyle and Chad Littlefield at a Texas shooting range two years ago.

Routh showed no reaction as a judge sentenced him to life in prison without parole, an automatic sentence since prosecutors didn’t seek the death penalty in the capital murder case.

Eric Garner’s Daughter: ‘Sharpton Is All About The Money’

From the New York Post:

Garner’s daughter on Sharpton: ‘He’s all about the money’

By Kevin Sheehan and Carl Campanile | February 24, 2015

Al Sharpton is all about the Benjamins, a daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner claims in a bombshell videotape. Erica Snipes tees off on the reverend as interested primarily in money during a secretly recorded conversation by controversial conservative activist James O’Keefe’s group, Project Veritas.

One of O’Keefe’s investigators poses as a Garner supporter with a hidden camera during a protest last month at the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island.

“You think Al Sharpton is kind of like a crook in a sense?” the investigator is heard asking Garner’s oldest daughter. “He’s about this,” Snipes replies, rubbing her fingers together.

WSU’s Black History Month Menu Featured Fried Chicken!!!

From Campus Reform:

Order’s up: University apologizes for Black History Month menu featuring fried chicken, collard greens

By Gabriella Morrongiello | February 23, 2015

A Black History Month menu featuring fried chicken, cornbread, and collard greens beneath a picture of Martin Luther King, Jr. did not sit well with students and faculty at Wright State University.

We will never understand this. Are people from England offended if they are associated with fish and chips or steak and ale pie? How is associating any food with any group denigrating in any way?

In a campus-wide email sent last Thursday, university president David Hopkins apologized profusely to WSU students and staff who were offended by the dining hall’s options. Hopkins also stressed the university’s allegiance to diversity and highlighted its decision to host the Phoenix Project, a three-part film series chronicling the Civil Rights era.

Students Create BDSM Club At Mt. Holyoke, All-Girls School

From Campus Reform:

Students create BDSM club at all-women’s school

By Yvonne Dean-Bailey | February 23, 2015

Students at an all-women’s school are seeking funding for their very own BDSM club. More than 60 Mount Holyoke College (MHC) students RSVP’d to the first meeting of the club which calls itself “The Control Tower.”

Paging Dr. Freud. (But come to think of it, the name ‘Mount Holyoke’ is a bit pervy in and of itself.)

BDSM—or Bondage, Dominance, Sadism and Masochism—constitue [sic] a variety of sexual practices that have risen in popularity recently due to the release of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey.

Don’t you wish there were still some things you didn’t have to hear about?

Club members plan to use the organization to educate MHC students about BDSM practices and the safety procedures.

Accused College Rapist Says He Was Reenacting 50 Shades

From an unfazed Washington Post:

College student accused of rape claims he was reenacting ’50 Shades of Grey’

By Peter Holley February 23, 2015

A college student who has been accused of raping a classmate told authorities he was reenacting scenes from “50 Shades of Grey,” authorities said.

A classic example of life imitating trash.

After bringing the 19-year-old woman back to his dorm room at the University of Illinois at Chicago on Saturday, Mohammad Hossain, 19, used multiple belts to restrain and beat his victim while he assaulted her, the State’s Attorney’s office told The Post.

We are amazed the WP published the suspect’s name, given that it would suggest he is a follower of the Religion Of Peace.

Hossain, who is studying bionuclear engineering, has been charged with one count of aggravated criminal sexual assault.

Univ Of Michigan Teaches Capitalism Should be Overthrown

From the College Fix:

‘Activism’ class at University of Michigan teaches capitalism should be ‘overthrown’

By Hunter Swogger | February 19, 2015

University of Michigan — A textbook used for an “activism” class at the University of Michigan teaches that capitalism should be “overthrown” – claiming “capitalism means waste, poverty, ecological degradation, dispossession, inequality, exploitation, imperialism, war and violence.”

The textbook, “Beautiful Trouble: A Toolbox for Revolution,” is assigned as mandatory reading for “Organizational Studies 203: Activism,” a class at the public university that pledges to teach students about the “struggles of movements past, as well as hands-on engagement with the struggles of today.”

The course is unbiased on paper, with its description stating “neither this course, nor its instructional staff, embraces or rejects any ideology, movement, or political project.

Jonathan Gruber’s Billing For Vermont Work Is Questioned

From the Daily Caller:

Jonathan Gruber’s Billing For Vermont Health Care Work Raises ‘Serious Questions’

February 23, 2015

Jonathan Gruber, the MIT health economist known as one of the architects of Obamacare, is under fire in Vermont after the state’s auditor found inconsistencies in invoices he submitted for work on the state’s health care model.

He probably thought the Vermont auditors would be too stupid to notice. Or, maybe he assumed since Vermont’s government is made up entirely of liberal Democrats, they wouldn’t mind be ripped off by a fellow traveller.

Gruber signed a $400,000 contract with Vermont last July to implement a proprietary economic model to help create a single-payer health care system…[But] after [various] videos emerged [in November], state lawmakers raised questions over Gruber’s contract and prompted state auditor Doug Hoffer to review it.

Net Neutrality Will Make US Internet As Slow As Europe’s

From the Washington Examiner:

Obama’s regs will make Internet slow as in Europe, warn FCC, FEC commissioners

By Paul Bedard | February 23, 2015

As the Federal Communications Commission and Federal Election Commission toy with regulating aspects of the Internet, critics [from] those agencies are warning that speed and freedom of speech are in jeopardy. In a joint column, Federal Communications Commission member Ajit Pai and Federal Election Commission member Lee Goodman, leveled the boom on the Obama-favored regulations, essentially charging that it will muck up the freedom the nation has come to expect from the Internet.

In one key passage of the column published in Politico, the duo wrote Monday that heavy-handed FCC regulations like those imposed in Europe will significantly slow down Internet [speeds:]

“These Internet regulations will deter broadband deployment, depress network investment and slow broadband speeds.

Illegal Aliens Get Work Permit Approval At A Rate Of 90%

From Breitbart:

‘Shadow Work-Permit System’: Anti-Amnesty Group Reveals More Details

By Caroline May | February 23, 2015

The anti-amnesty Center for Immigration Studies is offering more details on what it calls a “shadow work-permit system,” in which the Obama administration has issued millions of work permits beyond the levels mandated by Congress.

CIS — which recently revised its initial estimate of the unauthorized issuance of additional new work permits up— reports that between 2009 and 2014, the Obama administration issued 7.4 million new work permits, above the annual 1.1 million new legal and 700,000 guest workers admitted to the U.S…

We had a similar report from the Center for Immigration Studies via Breitbart three weeks ago. The earlier article said that since 2009 Obama has issued 5.5 million work permits to people who should not get them.

From The Daily Beast: Obama Is the Scaremonger-In-Chief

From the Daily Beast, of all places:

Obama Is the Scaremonger-in-Chief

By Ron Christie | February 24, 2015

Far from the dire picture painted by the president and his fellow Democrats, 90 percent of the Department of Homeland Security would remain on the job in a partial government shutdown.

In fact, there is no reason for even a 10% shutdown. Since we know even that those few people who work in non-security related jobs and who might not get paid — will inevitably get paid. So they might as well go in to work.

President Obama and congressional Democrats are offering up doomsday scenarios if the Department of Homeland Security funding authorization expires this Friday.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson implied on the talk shows Sunday morning that efforts to thwart terrorist attacks and assist Americans buried in snow could be imperiled if Republicans keep trying to de-fund the president’s executive action on illegal immigration.

DOJ: Amnesty Injunction Causes Irreparable Harm To DHS

From an unquestioning Reuters:

U.S. Justice Department asks for stay to allow immigration action

By Julia Edwards and Emily Stephenson | February 23, 2015

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department on Monday argued that halting President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration from taking effect threatens national security, in a request for an emergency stay to put on hold a Texas judge’s decision that temporarily blocked the actions.

The Department of Homeland Security would sustain "irreparable harm" if a stay is not granted, the Justice Department argued in its request.

What harm would that be exactly? How is Homeland Security hurt by delaying giving amnesty to 4.7 million people? How is Homeland Security hurt by delaying giving 4.7 million foreign lawbreakers work permits and Social Security numbers?

Oscar Winning Director: Mexico Has To Fix Its Problems

From Breitbart:

Best Director Winner Blasts Mexican Government

By Michelle Moons | February 23, 2015

San Diego, CA — Sunday night’s Academy Awards was littered with political commentary, with Best Director winner Alejandro González Iñárritu no exception as he dedicated Birdman’s Best Picture win to his fellow Mexicans, “who live in Mexico.”

Whoa. This is almost as striking a Patricia Arquette applauding women who have their babies, and thereby making an accidental slap against abortion. Though doesn’t seem to have been accidental.

Iñárritu’s comments echo prior statements made by last year’s Best Director and fellow Mexican, Alfonso Cuarón, slamming Mexican government officials over systematic corruption. “I want to dedicate this award for my fellow Mexicans, the ones who live in Mexico. I pray that we can find and build government that we deserve,” Iñárritu said in response to Birdman’s win for Best Picture.

Muslim Marine Who Deserted In Iraq Gets 2 Years Prison

From an intentionally misleading Associated Press:

US Marine who vanished in Iraq gets 2 years in prison

By JONATHAN DREW | February 23, 2015

RALEIGH, North Carolina (AP) — A U.S. Marine who vanished a decade ago in Iraq was sentenced Monday to two years in prison for leaving his post there and then fleeing to Lebanon after a brief return to the U.S.

The judge at Camp Lejeune, Marine Maj. Nicholas Martz, ruled that Cpl. Wassef Hassoun was guilty of deserting when he disappeared in 2004 and 2005. Hassoun was also convicted of causing the loss of his service pistol.

So despite the highly misleading headline, Cpl. Hassoun didn’t "vanish." He deserted. But is this why we still haven’t gotten the Bowe Bergdahl report, all these months later?

Russia Threatens To Cut Off Gas To Ukraine – And Europe

From the Agence France Presse:

Russia’s Gazprom threatens to cut off gas to Ukraine, Europe

February 24, 2015

Kiev (AFP) – Russia’s state-owned gas giant Gazprom warned Tuesday it could cut off gas deliveries to Ukraine within two days, upping the stakes in the crisis there — and threatening supplies to the rest of Europe…

Ukraine’s national gas company, Naftogaz, has already said the Russian company was not supplying gas Ukraine has paid for. Gazprom last week started providing direct gas deliveries to parts of Ukraine under the control of pro-Russia separatists fighting government forces, supplanting Naftogaz deliveries disrupted by pipeline damage…

So Russia is refusing to send gas to Ukraine, which has paid for it. Meanwhile, they are sending gas to their puppet ‘separatists’ who have taken over much of Eastern Ukraine.

96% Of Australians Joining ISIS Are Getting Gov’t Welfare

From Australia’s Daily Telegraph:

Aussie jihadists were on the dole

By SIMON BENSON | February 21, 2015

ALMOST all of the wannabe terrorists who have snuck out of Australia to join jihadist armies in Iraq and Syria were on the dole or some form of welfare payment, The Saturday Telegraph can reveal. A federal investigation into the welfare status of Australian foreign fighters, prompted last year by revelations in The Telegraph, shows 96 per cent had been on welfare benefits when they fled to the Middle East.

You see? Obama and Marie Harf are right. It is all about poverty. — Or are they? Since, if these people were already getting welfare benefits, it doesn’t seem like there is much more any government can we do to help them.
