Obama Installs ‘Gender-Neutral’ Restroom In The OEB

From the Politico:

Latest White House feature: Gender-neutral restroom

By Sarah Wheaton | April 8, 2015

President Barack Obama’s staff and visitors now have the option of using a gender-neutral restroom, a White House spokesman said Wednesday — the latest in a series of symbolic steps the Obama administration has taken to work the priorities of the LGBT community into its broader themes of inclusiveness and tolerance.

Thank goodness Mr. Obama has his priorities in order. After all, the ‘LGBT community’ comprise almost 3 percent of the population. We must turn our entire nation upside down to cater to every one of their demands, ASAP.

The newly designated restroom is an example of how the administration has been advancing the discussion by raising the profile of transgender issues, an area of debate that is especially hotly contested right now.

Obama Wants To Ban ‘Conversion Therapies’ For Gays

From the foremost champions of all things ‘gay,’ the New York Times:

Obama to Call for End to ‘Conversion’ Therapies for Gay and Transgender Youth

By MICHAEL D. SHEAR | April 8, 2015

WASHINGTON — A 17-year-old transgender youth, Leelah Alcorn, stunned her friends and a vast Internet audience in December when she threw herself in front of a tractor-trailer after writing in an online suicide note that religious therapists had tried to convert her back to being a boy.

And we’re sure that was the only cause of his/her suicidal depression. And never mind the incredibly high suicide rate of homosexuals. This cause needs a poster child and Mr/Ms. Alcorn is now it.

In response, President Obama is calling for an end to such therapies aimed at “repairing” gay, lesbian and transgender youth…

And yet his wife has no problems dictating what children should be allowed to eat.

Memories Pizza Re-Opens, Gives Money To Charities

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

Defiant Indiana pizza parlor owners who won’t cater for gay receptions REOPEN store tomorrow

By Shekhar Bhatia | 7 April 2015

Walkerton, Indiana — The pizza parlor owners who received death threats and were subjected to an online hate campaign will reopen for business tomorrow with the backing of $842,000 from well wishers and a defiant message that they stand by their opposition to gay weddings. They were going to open today but were advised to hold off for security reasons.

Sheesh.

In an exclusive first interview inside Memories Pizza restaurant since it closed down last week, owner Kevin O’Connor and daughter Crystal emerged from hiding and told Daily Mail Online they had been heartened by the support of 29,000 people who donated and many more who wrote to them.

NORAD Back To Cheyenne Mountain (EMP Shielding)

From the Agence France Presse:

US aerospace command moving comms gear back to Cold War bunker

April 7, 2015

Washington (AFP) – The US military command that scans North America’s skies for enemy missiles and aircraft plans to move its communications gear to a Cold War-era mountain bunker, officers said.

How did that Obama’s wisecrack to Romney go again? ‘The 1980s called. They want their foreign policy back.’

The shift to the Cheyenne Mountain base in Colorado is designed to safeguard the command’s sensitive sensors and servers from a potential electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, military officers said.

Now who would be mean enough to explode a nuclear weapon a mile over the US and cause an EMP? Certainly, not our friends the Russians or our friends the Chinese.

WH Cartoon Claims ‘Zero Chance’ Iran Develops Bomb

From The Hill:

White House mocks Netanyahu on Twitter

By Jordan Fabian | April 08, 2015

The White House on Wednesday took a shot at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by using a cartoon bomb to defend its nuclear deal with Iran. The bomb diagram attached to a White House tweet looked a lot like a chart used by Netanyahu during a 2012 speech to the United Nations General Assembly urging the U.S. and other world powers to set an ultimatum to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.

Using a marker, Netanyahu drew a red line near the top of the bomb. “At this late hour there is only one way to peacefully prevent Iran from getting atomic bombs,” Netanyahu told the annual gathering.

Marie Harf Mocks Kissinger Op-Ed: ‘A Lot Of Big Words’

From the Washington Free Beacon:

State Dept Downplays Kissinger/Schultz Op-Ed as ‘A Lot of Big Words and Big Thoughts’

By Daniel Bassali | April 8, 2015

Former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and George Schultz ran an op-ed by in the Wall Street Journal criticizing President Obama’s approach to foreign policy, especially with regard to Iran…

State Department spokesperson Marie Harf called their opinions on the Iran negotiations “a lot of big words and big thoughts.”

The funniest thing about all of this is seeing the phrase" big thoughts and big words" in the same sentence with Marie Harf. Ms. Harf should stick to lecturing us on how all ISIS is needs is more good jobs.

Kissinger and Schultz, who served under Presidents Nixon, Ford, and Reagan, said the strategy Obama has pursued is futile and dangerous.

Obama Calls Corker, Dems Push To Make Bill Pointless

First, there is this from The Hill:

Obama phones Corker to talk Iran

By Jordan Fabian | April 8, 2015

President Obama called Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker on Wednesday to outline his case for a nuclear deal with Iran that has entered the final stages of negotiations.

And to remind him what happened to the Democrat co-author of the bill, Bob Menendez.

The phone call comes amid a White House effort to court Corker (R-Tenn.), who is working to assemble a veto-proof majority for a bill allowing Congress to review any Iran deal — something the White House says will kill the talks…

It’s ‘courting’ in much the same way putting a horse’s head in bed with you is ‘courting.’

Even though the two share “obvious differences” on the talks, Obama said he “has a lot of respect for the way Corker has approached the situation,” according to Josh Earnest…

In other words, Senator Corker agreed to cave completely.  

Meanwhile, from the Politico:

White House, Dems seek to water down Iran bill

By Burgess Everett | April 8, 2015

… Democrats are hoping that Republicans will agree to their suggested changes to the measure that would give Congress review power over the nuclear agreement…

Some "review power." The Senate probably won’t ever see this "agreement." In fact, probably no one will see it, since it won’t be written down.

State Department Orders Crash Course On Negotiating

First there is this from the Associated Press:

Iran sends navy vessels to waters off Yemen, raising stakes

By AHMED AL-HAJ and SARAH EL DEEB | April 8, 2015

SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Iran dispatched a destroyer and another naval ship to waters off Yemen on Wednesday, raising the stakes amid a Saudi-led air campaign targeting Iranian-backed Shiite rebels fighting forces loyal to the country’s embattled president….

The Iranian warships were sent to the strategic Bab al-Mandab strait as part of an anti-piracy campaign to "safeguard naval routes for vessels in the region," Iranian Rear Adm. Habibollah Sayyari was quoted as saying by the English-language state broadcaster Press TV…

These are the same people we are supposed to trust in Obama’s non-written secret nuke deal.

Khamenei Calls US Fact Sheet ‘Contrary To Agreement’

From BBC News:

Iran nuclear: No guarantee of final deal, Khamenei says

April 9, 2015

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says that there is "no guarantee" of a final deal with world powers on its nuclear programme. Earlier, President Hassan Rouhani had said Iran would not sign a final deal unless sanctions were lifted "on the first day" of implementation.

Now that is odd. Since we have been told that there the US had reached a ‘tentative framework agreement’ that stipulates the sanctions will be lifted gradually. And, that, in fact, they would  ‘snapped back’ if there is any hint of Iranian non-compliance.

So who is lying here? Iran’s secretive despot or our secretive despot?

In a statement on his website [sic], Mr Khamenei said "it is possible that the untrustworthy side [the six world powers who negotiated the agreement] wants to restrict our country in the details".

Maya Angelou Stamp Has Quote From Another Poet

From the Washington Post, of all places:

Postal Service releases Maya Angelou stamp with quote from another author

By Josh Hicks | April 7, 2015

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday released a new Maya Angelou stamp featuring a quote from a different author’s book, propagating a popular misconception about the original source of the line. “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song,” the stamp reads.

Angelou, the late African-American author who wrote the famous 1969 autobiography “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” used the same line in media interviews, and President Obama attributed it to her during the 2013 presentation of the National Medal of Arts and National Humanities Medal.

Well, Mr. Obama thinks he was born due to Selma.

Planned Parenthood Thinks Women Can’t Be Doctors

From the Daily Caller:

Planned Parenthood Probably Should Have Reconsidered This Anti-Rand Paul Tweet

By Alex Griswold | April 7, 2015

The official Twitter account for the nation’s largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood switched to full attack mode after Republican Senator Rand Paul announced his presidential campaign, but one tweet earned widespread mockery for its unfortunate implications.

Planned Parenthood [tweeted]: "Sen. Rand Paul’s "Show Your Support" page doesn’t have anything for women. Message received."

Rand Paul’s “Show Your Support” page… allows users to identify with a number of different groups (“Lawyer for Rand,” “African-American for Rand,” “Democrat for Rand,” etc.), but not as a woman….

Many Twitter users pointed out that by saying the page “didn’t have anything for women,” they were implying that women couldn’t be lawyers, nurses, doctors, veterans, etc.

Vanity Fair: ‘Politics Just Not In Brian Williams’ Blood’

Via NewsBusters:

Vanity Fair: NBC Investigation Finding More Fabrications by ‘Shell-Shocked’ Brian Williams

By Curtis Houck | April 7, 2015

According to a new Vanity Fair exposé on the troubled NBC News, the Brian Williams scandal appears far from over as additional examples of fabrications by the suspended NBC Nightly News anchor have been uncovered and it’s unknown whether Williams will return to the network.

Inside Bryan Burrough’s 8,400-word plus piece, he reported that the investigation into Williams’s numerous claims “is ongoing” and “people who have spoken to Esposito say his group has compiled a number of other incidents that, taken as a whole, paint a portrait of Williams as a man who has consistently burnished his stories.”

Even though Williams both “accepted responsibility for his actions” and his six-month-long suspension, Burroughs cited “friends” of Williams who described him as “bitter, especially at those who he believes might have saved him.” …

And why didn’t they save him?

Some States IDs For Illegals Are Identical To Licenses

From Fox News:

States flouting post-9/11 ID law, giving cards to illegal immigrants that mirror licenses

By William La Jeunesse, Jessica Miller | April 8, 2015

After the 9/11 attacks, Congress passed the REAL ID Act to prevent foreign nationals from fraudulently obtaining a U.S. driver’s license — by requiring that any ID issued based on unverifiable foreign documents look different in "design or color" from an official driver’s license. That way, TSA and other law enforcement would know the ID holder might not be who they say they are.

But more than a decade later, several state and local governments are openly flouting the law, issuing ID cards that are barely distinguishable from a bona fide driver’s license. That means those with mere ID cards, like illegal immigrants, might be able to pass off their cards as a driver’s license at the airport and elsewhere — creating a huge gap in security.

5th Circuit Rejects 2nd Challenge To Obama’s Amnesty

From a cheering Reuters:

U.S. appeals court rejects challenge to 2012 Obama deportation relief

By Jonathan Kaminsky | April 7, 2015

(Reuters) – A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday rejected a challenge to President Barack Obama’s 2012 executive action granting deportation relief to immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children, upholding a lower court’s earlier ruling.

A panel of the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the plaintiffs in the case – the state of Mississippi and a group of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers upset by White House directives – had not shown they had been sufficiently harmed by the rule to keep the case alive.

"We conclude that neither the agents nor the state of Mississippi has demonstrated the concrete and particularized injury required to give them standing to maintain this suit," the decision stated…

The ‘lack of standing’ claim seems preposterous on the face of it.

Aetna Markets Ads That Target The ‘LGBT Community’

From a cheering Associated Press:

Aetna aims for LGBT community with targeted marketing test

By Tom Murphy | April 7, 2015

Aetna is urging gay customers to "be proud" — and consider buying its coverage — as part of a new, narrow focus to selling health insurance in a business where the individual’s buying decision matters more than it used to.

What a brilliant move. Everyone knows that homosexuals are some of the most healthy people on the planet. So this will help Aetna lower their premiums for sure.

But, still, this is awfully courageous on Aetna’s part, given how much hatred there is in this country for homosexuals. Especially from the bitterly clinging Christians. (Cf. Indiana.)

The nation’s third-largest health insurer is using mobile phone apps, print ads and a recently launched website to appeal to the estimated 9 million members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in the United States.
