Meet “Hijarbie” – the Barbie that is covered up!

Last week I told you about the new “lesbian” Barbie, modeled after homosexual and Clinton supporter Abby Wambach.

Now a Nigerian woman has made what she is dubbing “Hijarbie.”

Haneefah Adam, 24, wanted to create a doll that dressed the way she did. Complete with a tiny hijab on her plastic head, the miniature fashionista could not be further away from the blonde doll that has brandished the bedrooms of millions of youngsters for almost 60 years.

Express UK reports that Adam said, “It got me thinking about how I’d actually like to see a doll dressed up like I would have — covered up. “I was mulling about the idea for about three months while I was still studying for my master’s degree in the UK. When I got back to Nigeria, I went to the mall, purchased a doll, dressed it up, documented it and here we are.”

You can see her creations here on Instagram.

I’m sure Barbie/Mattel will not have a problem with this Hijarbie, because “diversity is crucial.” As reader PatriotUSA pointed out on my other blog post, “When are they going to make a SOUTHERN Barbie wrapped in the Confederate flag in white and black?????”

Gee, ya think Barbie/Matttel would approve of this doll? My guess IS A BIG FAT NO.

Barbie in full PC mode: There is now a lesbian Barbie

Because “Diversity is crucial“…or something like that.

New line of "diverse" Barbies

New line of “diverse” Barbies

Mattel, the manufacturer of Barbie, recently added new dolls in three body types: curvy, petite and tall. They announced the following:

“Girls everywhere now have infinitely more ways to play out their stories and spark their imaginations through Barbie. Along with more overall diversity, we proudly add three new body types to our line.

This is just the beginning. From offering products that feature more empowering and imaginative roles to partnering with best in class role models, we believe in girls and their limitless potential. #YouCanBeAnything”

And the latest, more “empowering” Barbie? One of lesbian soccer player (retired) Abby Wambach. If (like me) you don’t follow women’s soccer, she is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA Women’s World Cup champion. She is married to Sarah Huffman. And she supports Hillary Clinton.

People Magazine reports that the official Abby Wambach Barbie doll was unveiled at The Makers Conference in California on Wednesday, honoring the longtime member of and recent retiree from the United States women’s national soccer team.

“At Barbie we believe that if she can see it, she can be it,” Kim Culmone, Vice President of Barbie Global said during the conference while unveiling the doll. She added, “Makers and Barbie are really, really thrilled to honor an extraordinary ‘shero,’ who has elevated and redefined what’s possible for women through her own effort, her bravery and her accomplishments.”

“I’m not gonna lie, you guys may not believe this, I was a Barbie kid… I played with Barbies my whole life,” the 35-year-old told the audience. She continued, “Playing with Barbies that may or may not have looked like myself growing up, I think this is a really impactful statement… it just proves that we really are getting somewhere… if you’re out there and maybe your doll doesn’t look exactly like you feel, here’s another option.”

One school, one Reed.

As I’d blogged before, the WayBack Machine shows no Internet activity from Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) from 2008, through the alleged shooting massacre, until mid-2013. See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2015/09/09/sandy-hook-hoax-6-signs-that-school-was-closed-before-massacre/

So where were SHES’s students in those years? New blogger Cinderella’s Broom has undertaken some fascinating research that points to Reed Intermediate School as a likely candidate. Highly recommend!

Cinderella's Broom

From a bird’s eye view, the Reed Intermediate School in Newtown, CT, which teaches fifth and sixth graders, resembles the eye of Horus, the pernicious symbol of the New World/ One World Order.

This little discovery may mean nothing at all. On the other hand, it focuses attention on what might otherwise be missed, one of life’s simple pleasures on the Mean Planet.

In January 2003, the Newtown Board of Education published this:Updating Newtown’s Plan of Conservation and Development.

On page 7 of the above-linked document is the table below:

Page 7 of Community Facilities

Dated as the table is, it provides “Rated Capacity” numbers in the last (right-hand) column. It tells us that the upper limit capacity for Reed Intermediate School is 1,100 people. A number worthy of note.

In a previous post, Cinderella concluded that it wasn’t very likely that a Newtown public school could have housed Sandy Hook students during…

Supporters of socialist Bernie Sanders can’t define socialism

Supporters of a socialist can’t define socialism. It’ s like it is 2008 all over again.

I weep for the future of our country.

Police officer (and student), in full uniform, escorted out of college class because…

The professor was uncomfortable with the presence of his firearm.

darton state college

Darton State College is a four-year state college unit of the University System of Georgia, located in Albany, Georgia. Last week, a police officer, in full uniform, was attending a class in Darton State College  where he is a student. The Epoch Times has a story that will leave you scratching your head.

are you serious

The instructor apparently became uncomfortable with the police-issued gun he was carrying, WALB-TV reported on Wednesday. The teacher then kicked the officer out of the classroom. The station said that he was “escorted” out, without elaborating.

There has been major blacklash on social media against the school over the move. “I hope the professor was disciplined and had to personally apologize to the officer,” wrote one person on Facebook. Some also called for the unnamed professor’s job. “Why wasn’t this professor fired. Disgraceful,” said another.

The university issued a statement:

“Darton State College is appreciative for the service of our law enforcement, and welcome them as students on our campus. We have apologized to the officer for our misunderstanding when he attended class on our campus, and we regret this happened. We have met with the faculty and staff involved to reiterate the Georgia Law and Darton Policy.” – Dr. Thomas Ormond, Interim Provost/VP for Academic & Student Affairs, Darton State College.”

The school allows law enforcement officers to carry firearms on campus, according to the school policy, which reads: “Students are prohibited from possession of firearms in or on college property except by law enforcement officers, judges and district attorneys. The possession or use of any other offensive weapons is prohibited.” However, it’s unclear if a student, who is also a law enforcement officer is allowed to carry a firearm.

Doesn’t seem unclear to me. If an officer is in full uniform, why are you afraid to see him carrying a firearm? Unless you are a Pajama Boy, then I’d understand!

The Hillary Clinton book for your children!

No. JUST NO.

hillary book

From Amazon:

“In the spirit of Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope and Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride comes an inspiring portrait of Hillary Rodham Clinton: a girl who fought to make a difference—and paved the way for women everywhere—from Michelle Markel and LeUyen Pham.

In the 1950s, it was a man’s world. Girls weren’t supposed to act smart, tough, or ambitious. Even though, deep inside, they may have felt that way. And then along came Hillary. Brave, brilliant, and unstoppable, she was out to change the world.

They said a woman couldn’t be a mother and a lawyer. Hillary was both. They said a woman shouldn’t be too strong or too smart. Hillary was fearlessly herself.

It didn’t matter what people said—she was born to lead.

With illustrations packed full of historical figures and details, this gorgeous and informative picture book biography is perfect for every budding leader. Includes a timeline, artist’s note, and bibliography.”

The author Michelle Markel

Wonder if the author believes that sending top secret information via unsecured servers is “smart”?

Wonder if “budding leaders” (i.e., children) realize that the baby butchers at Planned Parenthood support this “fearless” women?

Wonder if the author believes that leaving four men to die is “brave”?

Seismic shift in U.S. political party system: Independents now outnumber Democrats & Republicans

Political parties serve important functions by aggregating or bringing together people of common interests, developing policies favorable to those interests, organizing their supporters and persuading voters to elect their candidates to political office.

The United States of America historically has been a two-party system, but there is a seismic shift going on, the implications of which are unclear and, therefore, troubling.

A recent Gallup Poll found that Americans who identify themselves as Democrats or Republicans are at all time lows: 29% Democrats; 26% Republicans. Both groups are now dwarfed by Americans who identify themselves as non-partisan Independents —  a whopping 42%.

diinosaurs

The changing party identification is indicative of many Americans having become profoundly disaffected and alienated from the two parties, and for good reasons. (See “America’s Bipartisan Ruling Class vs. the People“)

But their disaffection is also being expressed in their political apathy — increasing numbers of Americans are not voting. All of which augurs that we have entered a period of political upheavals and uncertainties.

Below are excerpts from David Lightman’s “At start of campaign, the last gasp of political parties,” in McClatchyDC, Jan. 28, 2016. My criticism of Lightman is that he himself is an exemplar of dinosaur Democrats: He highlighted only the Koch brothers as “big-money interests,” but omitted the “big-money interests” on the Left, such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg.

As the nation begins the process of electing a new president, the roles of the Republican and Democratic parties are undergoing fundamental shifts that are threatening their impact on both elections and policy.

Built in the 19th century, grown dominant in the 20th, they are largely out of date in this new age.

They still control the ballot and machinery such as the primaries. But they do not hold the loyalty of the people. The largest party in America now is no party — with the ranks of people calling themselves independents at the highest level in more than 75 years of polling. The parties do not control the message. People learn about politics from social media instead of traditional means such as mailings or campaign rallies. And the parties are no longer the sole banker of politics. Big-money interests now effectively create shadow parties with extensive networks of donors of their own.

The result: People are tuning out and turning away.

In 2012, average voter turnout for statewide primaries for president, governor and U.S. Senate plunged to its lowest level since the modern primary system became popular in 1972.

It’s a historic change in voter behavior….

Most indifferent to parties: young Americans. Nearly half the millennials identified as independents in 2014, Pew found, more than the combined total of those willing to be called either Democrats or Republicans….

Historically, children adopted their parents’ political views, including identification with the two major parties. Not anymore.

Millennials get information from sources other than from family dinners, neighbors or campaign brochures. If something piques their interest, they turn to Twitter, text messaging, The Skimm and other modern forms of instant communication….

Political parties are seen as too narrowly focused, too interested in keeping incumbents in office.

They gerrymander congressional districts to maximize their chances so that election after election only a handful of House of Representatives races are true contests. Of the House’s 435 seats, 402 incumbents are considered safe bets for re-election this year, said the nonpartisan Rothenberg & Gonzales Political Report.

Those safely partisan seats help keep Washington gridlocked — and turn off more Americans….

While independents are gaining clout, so are the big-money groups that now operate as virtual political parties.

Take Freedom Partners, an organization sponsored by brothers Charles and David Koch of Wichita, Kan.

Last year, the group committed to spend $889 million on politics and policy in 2015 and 2016.

The total would surpass the $404 million spent by the Republican National Committee and the $319 million spent by the Democratic National Committee in the 2012 campaign, according to opensecrets.org, which monitors political spending.

And that total would rival the $1 billion spent by all three major Democratic Party committees and the $1 billion spent by all three major Republican Party committees.

And the Koch network does more than just spend money. Twice each year it hosts about 400 executives, who pay dues of $100,000 each, for meetings on politics and policies. And its spending goes beyond the planned $250 million to help candidates, to include grants to organizations to help promote small-government policies as well as college scholarships and fellowships.

Other alternatives to the parties also are gearing up….

As Peter White, a cabin manager in Nottingham, New Hampshire, put it, “You feel the two parties both work for Wall Street and don’t care who wins.”
