Black assailant knocks white man to ground, shouts, ‘This is for Malcolm X, cracker!’

Obama built that.

Obama-laughs--300x199

From the NY Post: The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating a possible anti-white bias attack in Brooklyn — the second in a week.

A 51-year-old man walking along Nostrand Avenue near Glenwood Road in Flatbush was forcefully knocked to the ground by a 6-foot-1 black man around 3:40 p.m. Monday, police sources said. The victim told investigators that the assailant shouted, “This is for Malcolm X, cracker!” as he fell to the ground, sources said.

The man suffered pain in his neck, back and left shoulder, but refused medical attention at the scene.

Police are also investigating another possible bias attack on Sunday involving a man who allegedly sucker-punched straphanger Randy Aveille, 44, at the Church Avenue subway station at 9:45 p.m. Feb. 5 and spewed racial hatred at him. Cops released surveillance video of Aveille’s attacker on Wednesday in hopes of tracking him down. Authorities are investigating whether the attacks are related, sources said.

Aveille told The Post on Sunday that he had just gotten off the subway with his girlfriend and was headed to the steps when a man came from behind and began pummeling him in his face. “I was blindsided by a guy who started hitting my face,” Aveille said. “I was walking, and as I was approaching the steps, somebody came from behind me.” He said his fiancée heard the man say, “Watch who you look at!”

Obama goes after Social Security recipients’ guns

Obama said that his top priority for his remaining time in office is gun control.

He’s already done it to our military veterans — getting the dysfunctional Veterans Administration to take guns away from veterans deemed “mentally unfit”. (See “Obama regime prohibits disabled veterans from owning firearms and ammunition”)

Now, Obama is extending the same BOHICA “courtesy” to Social Security recipients.

Obama guns

Alan Zarembo reports for The Los Angeles Times, July 18, 2015, that Obama plans to ban millions of Social Security recipients from owning guns, as “part of a concerted effort by the Obama administration after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn., to strengthen gun control, including by plugging holes in the background check system.”

For the links to the posts FOTM has published on the Sandy Hook false-flag, go here.

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), with a database of more than 13 million records, is used to prevent gun sales to felons, fugitives, drug addicts, illegal immigrants, domestic abusers, dishonorably discharged service members, and others. The law requires gun stores to run the names of prospective buyers through the computerized background check system before every sale.

Already, Obama’s Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has expanded the category of “others” to include veterans who are incompetent to manage their pension or disability payments, and are assigned a fiduciary. Conservative groups have denounced the policy as an excuse to strip veterans of their gun rights.

Social Security has never participated in the background check system. Now, Obama means to change that by including some 4.2 million Social Security (SS) recipients who “lack mental capacity” — whose monthly disability payments are handled by others (“representative payees”) due to “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease.”

Critics — including gun rights activists, mental health experts and advocates for the disable — say that although such a ban would keep people who pose a danger to themselves or others from owning guns, the strategy undoubtedly would also include people who may just have a bad memory or difficulty balancing a checkbook.

Yale psychiatrist Dr. Marc Rosen, who has studied how veterans with mental health problems manage their money, points out that “Someone can be incapable of managing their funds but not be dangerous, violent or unsafe. They are very different determinations.” Rosen said some veterans may avoid seeking help for mental health problems out of fear that they would be required to give up their guns.

Ari Ne’eman, a member of the National Council on Disability (NCD), said the NCD would oppose any policy that used assignment of a representative payee as a basis to take any fundamental right from people with disabilities.

Steven Overman, a 30-year-old former Marine who lives in Virginia, said he “didn’t know the VA could take away your guns” and that his case demonstrates the flaws of judging gun safety by the yardstick of financial competence.

After his Humvee hit a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2007, Overman was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and a brain injury that weakened his memory and cognitive ability, and was deemed 100% disabled by the VA. In 2012, after declaring Overman incompetent and making his wife his fiduciary, the VA reported him to the background check system. So Overman surrendered his guns to his mother and began working with a lawyer to get them back because he enjoys target shooting and has never felt he is a danger to himself or others.

More than a year and a half after Overman filed his challenge, the VA finally lifted its incompetence ruling, allowing his removal from the background check system. Overman, who hasn’t worked since leaving the military, said he and a friend are now thinking of opening a gunsmith business.

In the case of the proposed Social Security Administration policy to take guns from SS recipients, what is even more of a concern is that the agency has been drafting its policy outside of public view.

Even the National Rifle Association (NRA) was unaware of it. Told about the initiative, the NRA issued a statement from its chief lobbyist, Chris W. Cox, saying: “If the Obama administration attempts to deny millions of law-abiding citizens their constitutional rights by executive fiat, the NRA stands ready to pursue all available avenues to stop them in their tracks.”

On April 23, 2015, Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL) introduced a bill to change the VA’s gun policy. H.R. 2001, the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act, would require a court to determine that somebody poses a danger before being reported to the background check system. The bill has been referred to the House Committee on Veterans Affairs.

Report: Top Clinton aides also handled ‘top secret’ intelligence on server

Given all that has happened with Clinton and her emails/private server, this comes as a surprise to no one, except maybe Drew Barrymore.

Time's Hillary cover

At least a dozen email accounts handled the “top secret” intelligence that was found on Hillary Clinton’s server and recently deemed too damaging for national security to release, a U.S. government official close to the review told Fox News. The official said the accounts include not only Clinton’s but those of top aides – including Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Jake Sullivan and Philippe Reines – as well as State Department Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy and others.

A second source not authorized to speak on the record said the number of accounts involved could be as high as 30 and reflects how the intelligence was broadly shared, replied to, and copied to individuals using the unsecured server.

The State Department recently confirmed that the messages in question include the most sensitive kind of intelligence. On Jan. 29, Fox News first reported that some emails on Clinton’s server were too damaging to release in any form. The State Department subsequently announced that 22 “top secret” emails were being withheld in full; these were the messages being handled by more than a dozen accounts.

Kennedy recently told the House Benghazi Select Committee that he knew about Clinton’s personal email account from the beginning, but did not understand the “scope,” thinking it was for reaching husband Bill Clinton and their daughter Chelsea — and not for the exclusive handling of State Department business. Kennedy’s testimony appears to conflict with emails released through the Freedom of Information Act that show he routinely sent and received government business from the Clinton account.

Fox News has asked the State Department to comment on the email accounts that shared the highly classified information, and how it was that Kennedy did not understand the “scope” of Clinton’s personal email being used for government business.  A spokesman for the intelligence community inspector general, which has been reviewing the classification of the Clinton server emails, had no comment.

It’s now come to the point where I’m not holding my breath that anything will happen to Hillary Clinton. I’ll just believe it when I see it.

Former U.S. Department of Education Arne Duncan signs with Creative Artists Agency

About a month after stepping down as U.S. secretary of education, Arne Duncan has signed with CAA in all areas, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

During his seven-year tenure (one of the longest in President Barack Obama’s Cabinet and the longest-serving education secretary in American history), Duncan’s accomplishments included implementing the stimulus act’s $100 billion education fund, which saved or created approximately 275,000 jobs*, increased Pell Grants and established reform programs such as Race to the Top and Investing in Innovation.

CAA is expected to negotiate book and speaking deals and identify new business opportunities for Duncan, who served as CEO of Chicago Public Schools before being appointed to Obama’s administration in January 2009.

*So CAA is touting that statistic in their promotion of Arne? That works out to $363,636 spent per “creating” or “saving” a job (if you even believe that number is accurate to begin with). Only in government and liberal la-la-land could one believe that number is something to be proud of.

Jughead Jones out of the closet…Archie Comics brands him asexual

So glad I’ve been done reading Archie comics for quite some time…

The Jughead as you may remember...

The Jughead as you may remember…

All of the years of Jughead’s love for food since the inception of Archie Comics appear to have finally meant something, as the writers of the current series have announced he is asexual in a newly released issue.

According to Fox News, the writers of the current series of Archies, Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson, made the announcement at last year’s Comic Con in New York, according to Catch News. The revelation takes place in Jughead No. 4, which will be released on Wednesday. Archie Comics gave some preview pages to ComicBookResources.com, which posted them Tuesday.

“My view of Jughead is, over the 75 years of his existence, there have been sporadic moments where he has dabbled in the ladies, but historically he has been portrayed as asexual,” Zdarsky said, according to Catch News.

“They just didn’t have a label for it, so they just called him a woman-hater. But he’s not a misogynist, he just watches his cohorts lose their minds with hormones… I think something like asexuality is underrepresented, and since we have a character who was asexual before people had the word for it, I’m continuing to write him that way,” he said.

Throughout the series, Jughead has had several girlfriends while at Riverdale High, including dating Big Ethel and January McAndrews, to sharing his love for food with Debbi.

California issues 650,000 driver’s licenses to illegals in 2015

¡Claro que sí!

california

Since last January, an estimated 605,000 driver’s licenses were issued to undocumented immigrants illegal aliens in California.

Fox News reports that immigrant rights groups and traffic safety experts have hailed the law because, they say, it means more drivers will be properly trained, licensed and more likely to have car insurance. “We believe that this new law increases safety on California roads by putting licensed drivers behind the steering wheel,” Artemio Armenta, a spokesman for the California Department of Motor Vehicles, told the Los Angeles Times.

But some have complained that under the bill, many applicants have had to wait longer to get an appointment. And even with an appointment, they have to wait in long lines.

Of Course, California taxpayers footed the bill to accommodate the illegal aliens. Before the law was implemented, the California DMV hired 1,000 temporary employees, opened four additional processing centers and extended hours of operation to include Saturdays. “It certainly overloads the system,” Ann Coil, Santa Ana Tea Party Patriots coordinator, told the Orange County Register recently. “And, again, we’re giving priority to people who aren’t citizens.”

The licenses have “federal limits apply” printed on them – meaning that federal officials and law enforcement officers in other states are not required to accept them as a valid form of identification.

The bill was part of a host of immigration-related pieces of legislation that have recently become law in California. In August, Brown signed a bill outlawing the use of the word “alien” within California’s labor code, one that permits noncitizen high school students to serve as election poll workers and one that protects immigrant minors in civil lawsuits.

California, which at 22 percent has the nation’s largest percentage of undocumented immigrants illegal aliens (yeah, I said alien!) eligible for driver’s licenses, is one of 12 states in the U.S. to allow them to obtain licenses.

Bernie Sanders supporters’ knowledge summed up in one Tumblr post…

feel the bern

Hint: Civics is not their strong suit.

This is an actual post I saw being shared all over Tumblr Saturday night:

please remember

not many are aware, but a president is extremely, extremely, extremelyyy limited without a supporting senate and congress.

for example, if the majority of the party is republican, as it is with Obama, most of the bills and “promises” brought up will be vetoed and denied by the congress without us knowing, thus resulting in us blaming the president when in reality, the president needs OUR help even after being selected.

voting does NOT stop after the presidential election. the president of your choice winning does NOT mean the fight is over.

if you support and want all the things Bernie Sanders is in favor of, and want to see change, please vote for a senate and congress that will support and pass these ideas as well.

so if you’re “feeling the Bern”, don’t be upset if you don’t get the free college tuition. so please, please, please, PLEASE…vote for a respectful, progressive, open minded senate & congress (:

I’m guessing this person has never heard of the power of executive orders? Have they heard about the separation of powers?

I’m guessing this person doesn’t know how Obamacare was passed?

Since when does Congress veto bills?

I’m guessing this person doesn’t know that there are plenty of ways to locate bills that were introduced and determine if they were “vetoed” or “denied” (i.e., their final status)?

By “respectful” and “open minded”, does this person mean passing a bill so that we can find out what is in it? How progressive!

We. Are. DOOMED.
