Tweeter wants you to make this disgusting “lincoln” pic go viral

A nobody named Joe Bernstein (@basher) is on Twitter. Joe Bernstein On March 24, 2015, Bernstein flatulated this tweet to his 2,694 followers, of a fat naked man engaged in an obscene act with the head of a statue, with the message:

please, for the love of god, help me make #lincolning go viral

Bernstein tweet By #lincolning, Joe Bernstein is referring to the obscene act that the chubby naked guy was doing to what Bernstein thinks is the statue of President Abraham Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

In other words, Bernstein is applauding and encouraging the desecration of President Lincoln.

Sadly, Bernstein is mistaken. The statue isn’t that of Abraham Lincoln.

It’s the statue of Alexander Graham Bell in the front portico of the Bell Telephone Building of Brantford, Ontario, Canada. Lincoln Memorial & Alexander Graham Bell Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) is the Scottish-born scientist, inventor, engineer and innovator who is credited with inventing the first practical telephone.

And so, both the tubby man and Joe Bernstein (assuming Bernstein isn’t the fat naked guy himself) are actually dissing the statue of the inventor of the telephone. facepalm

Bernstein calls himself a “reporter for BuzzFeed.”

Hahahaha: Sean Penn’s New Anti-American Action Flick BOMBS

sean penn

NewsBusters: Should we be shocked that according to reviews Sean Penn’s new movie, The Gunman, is turning out to be the Venezuelan economy of action thrillers? Not at all. After all, Penn, the Hugo Chavez fan boy, co-wrote the screenplay. And just as Chavez/Madurro socialist tropes inevitably led to a workers’ paradise chronically short of toilet paper, Sean Penn’s anti-corporate instincts led to a thriller chronically short of thrills.

sean_penn_hugo_chavez_not_a_dictato

The Gunman earned a pathetic 15 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. (For comparison, Run All Night, the current Liam Neeson shoot-em-up that’s struggling at the box office scored 59 percent. Neeson recently annoyed a good chunk of his audience with a stupidly hypocritical rant about guns. Penn lost those people decades ago.)

When you can’t get critics from the LA Times, The Guardian, NPR and the New York Times to put a happy face on your anti-American agitprop film, it must be some kind of stinker.

Penn plays a former assassin for hire haunted by things he did in Africa on behalf of big corporations that that have an interest third world in instability and bloodshed. Apparently he tries atone by doing Gaia’s work for an NGO when his old life sucks him back in, etc, etc, etc. Some of the best review lines:

  • “If the film’s intent is to condition the audience into a distaste for violence through boredom, it succeeds.” – Peter Keough, Boston Globe
  • “The self-seriousness is way out of touch with the realities of the production. This is a fundamentally stupid movie about a muscular superman beating and shooting the living hell out of all those who would cross him. It’s not an apologia for continental destruction.” – Robert Levin, AMNew York
  • “A lightweight thriller posing as a heavy political drama, or vice-versa. Not thoughtful and no fun.” – Rafer Guzman, Newsday
  • “Watching Penn pump iron and denounce capitalism for two hours would be roughly as illuminating as this monotonous Euro-thriller.” – Kyle Smith, New York Post
  • “In fact, no one in The Gunman looks happy.” – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

How did The Gunman do in it’s opening weekend? Just $5 million.

sean_penn_11

Variety:The weekend’s other major wide release, “The Gunman,” fired blanks, picking up a meager $5 million and seemingly deep-sixing Sean Penn’s plans to be an aging action star. Open Road distributed the film in 2,816 theaters and had expected a debut in the $8 million range. “The Gunman’s” modest results were good enough for a fourth place finish in an otherwise slow weekend. The Gunman’s” roughly $40 million production budget was fully funded by StudioCanal.”

Students Told to Pledge “One Nation Under Allah”

New York High School Tells Kids to Pledge Allegiance to “One Nation Under Allah.”
MARCH 20, 2015
frontpagemag.com

Making some parents furious, a Pine Bush, New York high school courted controversy by teaching kids to recite our national Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic even changing “one nation under god” to “one nation under Allah.” The morning’s regularly scheduled announcements included the Arabic reading of the pledge. According to students, the announcement was greeted by catcalls and angry denunciations in classrooms throughout the school by students who felt the reading was inappropriate…

Democrat Suggests Kids Should Be Drug-Tested Before They Can Inherit From Their Parents

height_630_no_border_width_1200

DailyCaller: Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez offered a baffling defense of the death tax Wednesday during a hearing examining the sometimes unbearable burden it places on family farms and businesses.

People receiving food stamps have to pass drug tests or meet work requirements to receive taxpayer dollars, Sanchez reasoned, so it’s only fair that those “lucky” enough to inherit wealth should have to do something to earn it or, in this case, pay a tax.

“What work requirements are there to inherit up to $10 million tax free?” she asked a witness, rhetorically.

Why is that [a single mother] should be drug tested, which is an unrelated requirement to receive food assistance, to make sure that her family has enough to eat,” she asked. “And people who are lucky enough to inherit millions of dollars are literally required to do nothing to get the federal tax benefit with their inheritance?” 

Sanchez acknowledged that Americans should value hard work, but bemoaned the “paradox” that occurs when they want to work hard so they can accumulate wealth to live off of in retirement and pass on to their children.  “We don’t believe in an aristocracy, or that it’s a good societal thing for dynasties to hoard their wealth and leave the rest to fight over the crumbs,” she said. “That’s just not how this country was founded.”

“But we have a paradox here in this country, where we think you should work hard to get where you are … but by the same token, everyone wants to make enough money to where they can retire and not have to work,” she continued. “And they want to preserve increasingly larger and larger chunks of their wealth.”

Sanchez made the remarks after hearing a witness describe the heartbreak her family is going through watching her father try to find a way to pass his business along to his children without breaking it up in order to pay the death tax.

“Our whole lives we watched my dad work,” Illco, Inc. CFO Karen Madonia said. “You know, 10 to 12 hours a day … he did all of it. And we watched him struggle through all that, and to watch him figure out how he can pass it onto us and let us make our mark on it without having to dismantle part of it is really just heartbreaking.”

The government currently taxes inheritance at a rate of up to 40 percent. 

“I understand the desire to keep things running in a family business,” Sanchez said. “I get that. I get the hardships you guys encounter. But let’s not throw the entire baby out with the bathwater and say we’re going to eliminate the estate tax altogether.

Republican Rep. Kevin Brady introduced legislation last week that would repeal the death tax, which prompted the hearing Wednesday by the House Ways and Means Select Revenue Measures Subcommittee.

“The Death Tax is still the No. 1 reason family-owned farms and businesses in America aren’t passed down to the next generation,” Brady said in a statement announcing the bill. “It’s the wrong tax at the wrong time and hurts the wrong people.”

No muslims involved. Oops! Muslims were involved.

Boston Media gets it wrong again

Boston Strong?

Boston Strong?

In a typical brain fart, Boston’s Channel 5 declares no muslim involvement in viscous terror attack. The screen grab below was on WCVB.com this morning. Four hours later, after the obvious truth was made known, they no longer have any such story.

Museum attack in Tunisian capital kills 19; 2 gunmen slain

By BOUAZZA BEN BOUAZZA and PAUL SCHEMM

TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — Foreign tourists scrambled in panic Wednesday after militants stormed a museum in Tunisia’s capital and killed 19 people, “shooting at anything that moved,” a witness said…

Twitter accounts associated with the extremist Islamic State group based in Syria and Iraq were described as overjoyed at the attack…

So what have we learned here?

We have relearned that media cannot be trusted; that progressives will tell any lie they think will win an argument. We have affirmed again that most of our news people are suicidally ignorant, especially in the face of real evil. 

Shocker! More Seattle restaurants close doors as $15 minimum wage approaches

not surprised

ShiftWA.org: Seattle’s $15 minimum wage law goes into effect on April 1, 2015. As that date approaches, restaurants across the city are making the financial decision to close shop. The Washington Policy Center writes that “closings have occurred across the city, from Grub in the upscale Queen Anne Hill neighborhood, to Little Uncle in gritty Pioneer Square, to the Boat Street Cafe on Western Avenue near the waterfront.”

Of course, restaurants close for a variety of reasons. But, according to Seattle Magazine, the “impending minimum wage hike to $15 per hour” is playing a “major factor.” That’s not surprising, considering “about 36% of restaurant earnings go to paying labor costs.” Seattle Magazine,

“Washington Restaurant Association’s Anthony Anton puts it this way: “It’s not a political problem; it’s a math problem.”

electionshaveconsequences

“He estimates that a common budget breakdown among sustaining Seattle restaurants so far has been the following: 36 percent of funds are devoted to labor, 30 percent to food costs and 30 percent go to everything else (all other operational costs).  The remaining 4 percent has been the profit margin, and as a result, in a $700,000 restaurant, he estimates that the average restauranteur in Seattle has been making $28,000 a year.

“With the minimum wage spike, however, he says that if restaurant owners made no changes, the labor cost in quick service restaurants would rise to 42 percent and in full service restaurants to 47 percent.”

Restaurant owners, expecting to operate on thinner margins, have tried to adapt in several ways including “higher menu prices, cheaper, lower-quality ingredients, reduced opening times, and cutting work hours and firing workers,” according to The Seattle Times and Seattle Eater magazine. As the Washington Policy Center points out, when these strategies are not enough, businesses close, “workers lose their jobs and the neighborhood loses a prized amenity.”

A spokesman for the Washington Restaurant Association told the Washington Policy Center, “Every [restaurant] operator I’m talking to is in panic mode, trying to figure out what the new world will look like… Seattle is the first city in this thing and everyone’s watching, asking how is this going to change?” The Washington Policy Center,

“Seattle is rightly famous for great neighborhood restaurants.  That won’t change.  What will change is that fewer people will be able to afford to dine out, and as a result there will be fewer great restaurants to enjoy.  People probably won’t notice when some restaurant workers lose their jobs, but as prices rise and some neighborhood businesses close, the quality of life in urban Seattle will become a little bit poorer.”

sawantAnd the socialist council member that adores this? Kshama Sawant. She ran on a platform of anti-capitalism, workers’ rights, and a $15 per-hour minimum wage for Seattle workers. In November 2013, she spoke to supporters of Boeing Machinists, six days after they rejected a contract guaranteeing jobs in Everett building the new 777X airliner for eight years, in exchange for new workers giving up their guaranteed company pensions.

Boeing threatened to take those jobs to other states. She said, “That will be nothing short of economic terrorism because it’s going to devastate the state’s economy,” she said.

Sawant called for machinists to literally take-possession of the Everett airplane-building factory, if Boeing moves out. She called that “democratic ownership.”

Sawant said after workers “take-over” the Everett Boeing plant; they could build things everyone can use. “We can re-tool the machines to produce mass transit like buses, instead of destructive, you know, war machines,” she told KIRO 7.
