Students Protest Plan To Teach Patriotism, Citizenship

From a cheering Associated Press:

Denver Area Students Walk Out of School in Protest of Conservative Curriculum

September 23, 2014

ARVADA, Colo. (AP) — Hundreds of students walked out of classrooms around suburban Denver on Tuesday in protest over a conservative-led school board proposal to focus history education on topics that promote citizenship, patriotism and respect for authority, providing a show of civil disobedience that the new standards would aim to downplay.

The youth protest in the state’s second-largest school district follows a sick-out from teachers that shut down two high schools in the politically and economically diverse area that has become a key political battleground…

Student participants said their demonstration was organized by word of mouth and social media. Many waved American flags and carried signs, including messages that read "There is nothing more patriotic than protest."

"I don’t think my education should be censored.

AP Reports Desecration Of Brown Memorial, Not Looting

From a selectively outraged Associated Press:

Fire destroys Michael Brown memorial in Ferguson

By JIM SALTER | September 23, 2014

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Anger spilled over Tuesday after fire destroyed one of two memorials on the street where Michael Brown was killed, a site that has become sacred to many in Ferguson and others nationwide focused on interactions between minorities and police.

How the fire happened wasn’t immediately clear —

Perhaps all the candles at the site was a factor. (See later in the article.)

But it stoked fresh resentment among those who question whether the shooting of the unarmed, black 18-year-old by a white Ferguson police officer on Aug. 9 is being adequately investigated.

It also sparked rioting and looting. But the AP neglects to mention that.

By Lesley Wroughton, Nelson Renteria | September 23, 2014

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The governments of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala presented U.S. officials with a plan on Tuesday to boost economic growth in the poor countries and stem the flow of migration to the United States.

Foreign ministers from the three nation’s presented "The Plan of the Alliance for Prosperity in the Northern Triangle," which includes development projects to boost jobs and proposals to strengthen the region’s weak judicial institutions, according to a U.S. state department official.

There were no immediate details on the plan, which was developed with the help of the Inter-American Development Bank, or how much it could cost.

RFK, Jr Wants To Put ‘Global Warming Skeptics’ In Prison

From Marc Morano over at Climate Depot:

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Wants To Jail His Political Opponents

By Marc Morano | September 21, 2014

New York City – Environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lamented that there were no current laws on the books to punish global warming skeptics.

“I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under,” Kennedy told Climate Depot in a one-on-one interview during the People’s Climate March…

Kennedy Jr. accused skeptical politicians of “selling out the public trust.” “Those guys are doing the Koch Brothers bidding and are against all the evidence of the rational mind, saying global warming does not exit. They are contemptible human beings.

Global Warmist Leo DiCaprio Has Huge Carbon Foot Print

First there is this from the UK’s Daily Mail:

Leo DiCaprio lectures UN on climate change (but no mention of his four homes, private jets and renting the FIFTH biggest yacht in the world from an OIL billionaire)

By Michael Zennie | 23 September 2014

… After marching with 400,000 others on the streets of New York this weekend to demand tough regulations to cut the amount of CO2 being pumped into the air, DiCaprio opened a UN climate change summit by urging the world to crack down on polluters and ‘put a price tag on carbon emissions.’ But the 39-year-old Hollywood star’s own jetset lifestyle reveals a double-standard on the issue of climate change…

MailOnline can report that DiCaprio took at least 20 trips across the nation and around the world this year alone – including numerous flights from New York to Los Angeles and back, a ski vacation to the French Alps, another vacation to the French Riviera, flights to London and Tokoyo[sic]  to promote his film Wolf of Wall Street, two trips to Miami and trip to Brazil to watch the World Cup.

UN Exempts Top Polluter From Stricter CO2 Enforcement

From Breitbart:

Climate Summit: UN Exempts World’s #1 Polluter from Stricter CO2 Enforcement

By Chriss W. Street | September 23, 2014

The European Union and United States government-funded Global Carbon Project (GCP) released their latest Atlas that tracks annual CO2 emissions by 196 countries in cooperation with Sunday’s People’s Climate March and President Obama’s keynote speech at the United Nations Global Climate Summit Tuesday.

The GCP report warns that man-made global warming is accelerating and names China as the chief culprit. However, GCP blames consumption in Europe and the United States for high levels of CO2 emissions and supports continued UN exemptions from enforcement for China…

[The GCP points] out that China is not only the world’s largest emitter of CO2 with a 29% share but also now exceeds the emissions on a per capita basis by the 28 countries in the European Union…

The United States in 1992 was the world’s biggest CO2 emitter and still is the largest on a per capita basis.

CNN: GOP Using ‘Politics Of Fear’ Against Dems – Again!

From the DNC’s lickspittle minions at CNN:

Politics of fear — how the GOP is using ISIS against Dems

By Dana Bash and Deirdre Walsh | September 23, 2014

Capitol Hill (CNN) — The politics of fear. Until recently, that seemed so 10 years ago, right after September 11, 2001. That is, until ISIS started beheading Americans.

Er, the GOP didn’t use 9/11 in their 2004 campaign. They weren’t allowed to.

Now, just six weeks before Election Day, security concerns could be a September surprise that shakes up the midterms. Across the country GOP candidates on the ballot in November are using the threat posed by ISIS to dust off an old playbook — attack Democratic opponents as weak on national security.

Those bastards! But who would ever believe such an obvious lie?

Afghan Soldiers Went To Strip Club Before Going AWOL

From the NBC Boston affiliate, WHDH:

Afghan soldiers went to Cape strip club before going AWOL

By Kris Anderson | September 23, 2014

MASHPEE, Mass. (WHDH) – New details are being released about what the Afghan soldiers who went M.I.A. from a Cape Cod military base did in the hours before their disappearance. The three men were part of a group of eight that went to Zachary’s Pub, a strip club, early Saturday morning.

Didn’t they say they were in search of a better life? By the way, didn’t some of the 9/11 hijackers go to a strip club before becoming martyrs for Allah and meeting their 72 virgins?

One of the dancers at the club said she remembers the men standing out because they looked foreign, but it wasn’t anything out of the ordinary.

The Khorasan Group = Al Qaeda Obama Had On The Run

From an unfazed Associated Press:

U.S. officials: Terrorist group was nearing attack

By KEN DILANIAN | September 23, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. decision to strike the Khorasan Group to stop a possible terror attack represents a significant expansion of the largely secret war against core al-Qaida, a group President Barack Obama has proclaimed was "a shadow of its former self."

Would the administration and their news media minions be calling these terrorists ‘the Khorasan Group’ if Obama hadn’t claimed to have destroyed Al Qaeda back when he was running for re-election?

We suspect that if Obama hadn’t constantly bragged about beating Al Qaeda, we would just be calling them Al Qaeda — because that’s all they are. After all, there are dozens of Al Qaeda subsets, and we have never bothered to call them by their specific tribal names before.

Obama Will Sing New Tune In United Nations Address

From an irony-proof Associated Press:

Obama to address UN amid new Mideast strikes

By JULIE PACE | September 24, 2014

NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama is addressing the United Nations as a commander in chief overseeing a war against militants in two Middle Eastern nations, a striking shift in the trajectory of a presidency that had been focused on ending conflicts in the region.

It’s much more of a ‘shift in the trajectory’ than that. Obama has told the UN ‘the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet.’ Yet now he is bombing the prophet’s most devoted followers.

Obama has criticized the US at the UN for the thinking it is the world’s policeman. Yet now he is once again making us the world’s policeman.

Obama Makes ‘Jokes’ About NYC Traffic Jam He Caused

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

Obama makes light of New York traffic chaos he causes by saying ‘it’s actually pretty smooth for me’

By Francesca Chambers | 23 September 2014

President Barack Obama joked today during a New York speech that he doesn’t seem to have the traffic problems the city’s residents are always complaining about.

‘It’s actually pretty smooth for me during the week,’ Obama said, after playfully arguing that everyone in New York ‘hypes’ the traffic. ‘I don’t know what the problem is,’ he told attendees of the Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting. ‘I haven’t noticed.’ …

Not only is this tone deaf, given how much Obama is hated for snarling traffic in NYC, LA and other cities. But it also flies in the face of his supposed concern for the environment.

Obama Saluted 2 ‘Corpse-men’ With Coffee Cup In Hand

From ABC News:

President Obama Gesture to Marines Dubbed ‘Latte Salute’

By Devin Dwyer | September 24, 2014

Some are calling it the "latte salute."

When President Obama stepped off Marine One at the Wall Street landing zone in New York City, en route the United Nations, he saluted two Marines at the bottom of the stairs as he held a coffee cup in the same hand.

This sure undercuts all of his glowing words Obama had for the military in his remarks yesterday, when he was sending them off to another war. By the way, what was Obama doing carrying a Styrofoam cup on his way to chide the world about climate change?

The unusual gesture appeared in an Instagram video posted by the White House on social media.

Biden: Obama Will Do Amnesty, GOP Wants Exec Orders

First we have this from a cheering Associated Press:

Biden to Hispanics: Obama will act on immigration

By STACY A. ANDERSON | September 22, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden told frustrated Hispanic leaders Monday President Barack Obama is "absolutely committed to moving forward" on comprehensive immigration reforms "and he’s going to do an awful lot."

With the emphasis on ‘awful.’

Biden said Obama was determined to move ahead "with or without" Congress and "if they don’t get something done by the end of this year, the president’s going to do it."

Do they have kings in Mexico, too?

Biden’s remarks came as he and his wife, Jill, hosted a Hispanic Heritage Month reception Monday at their Naval Observatory residence…

Then there is this from a bemused Politico:

House GOP letter: Reveal exec orders

By SEUNG MIN KIM | September 22, 2014

AP Finally Notices All The Bogus Obama-Care Statistics

From the Associated Press:

SPIN METER: Those changing health law numbers

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR | September 22, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Call it health care law numerology.

Or maybe ‘Obama-Care mendacity.’

The Obama administration has had to revise and refine some initial enrollment numbers for health insurance sign-ups after they turned out to be too optimistic. At other times, metrics less favorable to the president’s overhaul leaked out after officials claimed not to have such data…

What a shock to hear that we have been given phony statistics by the most transparent administration since the Soviet Union.

The latest data tweak — an administration announcement that 7.3 million paying customers signed up for subsidized private insurance as of mid-August — set off more speculation. Some said it may prove overly rosy.

CDC: 2 Countries May Have 1.4M Ebola Cases By 2015

First, there is this from a suddenly concerned Associated Press:

WHO: 21,000 Ebola cases by November if no changes

September 22, 2014

LONDON (AP) — New estimates from the World Health Organization warn the number of Ebola cases could hit 21,000 in six weeks unless efforts to curb the outbreak are ramped up. Since the first cases were reported six months ago, the tally of cases in West Africa has reached an estimated 5,800 illnesses. WHO officials say cases are continuing to increase exponentially and Ebola could sicken people for years to come without better control measures…

The new analysis was published online Tuesday by the New England Journal of Medicine — six months after the first infections were reported on March 23. WHO is just one of the groups that have attempted to calculate the epidemic’s future toll.
