Clueless: Joyce Carol Oates Outraged Over Selfie With ‘Dead Dinosaur’

The horror…the horror.Novelist Joyce Carol Oates went into full liberal outrage mode when she spotted a picture of that notorious big game hunter, Steven Spielberg, posing with his prey. In this case it was a Triceratops dinosaur prop from the Jurassic Park movie set. It turns out that Oates’ anger comes about 65 million years too late because that was about how long ago this dinosaur went extinct.  Her laughably misplaced anger was in reaction to a tongue in cheek tweet by IGN movie editor Chris Tilly who probably didn’t think any rational person would take him seriously.

LOL – I have no idea what sort of drugs Oates is doing, but I am wondering if she is willing to share.

Wayne Allyn Root on the Suicide Bomber in the White House

Wayne Allyn Root

I told you so. Forget ISIS. Forget Al Queda. Forget Putin. Forget China. The worst threat to America is Barack Hussein Obama.

I’ve screamed from the highest mountains for almost seven long years now that we have a suicide bomber in the White House. Obama is dive-bombing our nation’s economy the same way that the Germanwings Airline co-pilot Andreas Lubitz crashed his plane into the ground in France two months ago.
Except this isn’t one plane and a couple hundred souls. Obama is taking the entire American economy and all of us down with him.

I’ve told everyone and anyone who would listen for almost seven years that Obama is following the exact plan he learned as my college classmate at Columbia University Class of ’83. The plan is called “Cloward-Piven.”

The plan is simple: to destroy capitalism and “American exceptionalism” you overwhelm the system with spending, entitlements, regulations and debt. The economy comes to halt, full-time jobs are killed, businesses fail in record numbers, the middle class is murdered financially, the debt implodes and the economy is overwhelmed.

Capitalism dies as a majority of Americans wind up hooked on welfare, food stamps, free healthcare and government checks like a drug addict is hooked by a drug dealer on heroin, or crack cocaine, or crystal meth. Obama is America’s drug dealer. But his drug of choice is government dependency.

To make this plan work Obama needs you hopeless, helpless, clueless and losing all faith in God, yourself, individualism, personal responsibility and capitalism. He needs you scared out of your wits and desperate. He needs you believing that only government can save you.

How does this end? According to Cloward-Piven a majority of Americans wind up dependent on government, they vote out of desperation for whatever political party promises to keep the checks coming or better yet, expand the checks. Then slowly, like boiling a frog who doesn’t realize what’s happening until he’s dead, capitalism dies. The very same people destroyed by government are now dependent on government to survive, they beg government to save them, and that opens the door to a Big Brother socialist economic system.

It’s happening right in front of our eyes.

You don’t have to believe me. Just look at the evidence. The proof came in last Friday. The first quarter GDP growth was NEGATIVE. This is proof that the plan is working. The US economy is in reverse. We are in quicksand and we’re all drowning. Obama is taking us down like a suicide bomber.

These aren’t opinions. This is a fact. Now you just have to decide based on the evidence of a dying economy after almost seven years under Obama…

Is Obama an ignorant incompetent idiot…dangerous to himself and everyone around him…or a purposeful suicide bomber out to destroy America and capitalism. Because it’s either it’s one or the other.

Here are the facts. The first quarter GDP (Gross Domestic Product) – which is the measurement of our economy- was just revised on Friday to negative 0.07%. This number is a disaster.

But this isn’t some aberration or outlier. This is the entire Obama presidency. Obama’s seven first quarters as president are at a combined average of NEGATIVE 0.43%. Obama is the only president in the history of America’s recorded economic measurement to accomplish this. http://www.cnsnews.com/blog/terence-p-jeffrey/blame-it-global-cooling-obama-has-lowest-average-1stq-gdp-growth-any

Let me repeat: This is the worst seven-year record in the history of America’s recorded GDP.

Obama is also the only president in history to have produced four separate first quarters that were negative. We started measuring GDP in 1947. Obama is certainly one of a kind…a trendsetter. He is setting records for disaster and futility never before imagined in the greatest country in world history. And guess what? We’re all going along for the ride. I hope you buckled your seatbelt.

Yet no one appears willing to say out loud and on the record that something is very wrong…that this isn’t normal.
No one is willing to say this isn’t possible to do by mistake. No one is willing to suggest there is a madman…a suicide bomber at the controls, taking our economy and country down just like that German pilot dive-bombed that plane into the ground two months ago.

Want more proof? The average first quarter GDP since measurements began in 1947 was 4.0%.
Under Harry Truman it was 4.5%.
Under Eisenhower it was 3.2%.
Under Kennedy it was 4.9%.
Under LBJ it was 8.3%.
Under Nixon 5.3%.
Under Ford 2.3%.
Under Carter 2.4%.
Under Reagan 2.1% (and that was because Reagan inherited disaster from Carter).
Under HW Bush it was 2.9%.
Under Clinton 2.6%.
Under George W. Bush 1.7%.

Under Obama here are the seven 1st quarters:
NEGATIVE 5.4%.
1.7%.
NEGATIVE 1.5%.
2.3%
2.7%.
NEGATIVE 2.1%.
NEGATIVE 0.07%.

Let me repeat- that’s the worst record in recorded history. That’s the only NEGATIVE average in recorded history. That’s the only time we’ve had four negative first quarters in history.

What’s the excuse? Winter? Cold weather in the first quarter? Really? So America didn’t have winter under Truman or JFK or LBJ? Winter is a new phenomenon that only effects Obama’s first quarter? Even more compelling, don’t Canada, Russia and China have winter in the first quarter too? So how come their GDP growth isn’t affected by winter?

Here’s the thing folks. Economists are saying the second quarter doesn’t look much better. Last I checked there is no winter in April, May and June. So why is this quarter off to the same kind of start? Why did all of this economic decline happen while gas prices plummeted? Economists predict a “windfall” for consumers because of lower gas prices. Yet the economy dive bombed and consumer spending stalled- even with cheap gas prices.

It’s clear “who” and “what” is to blame. The who is a suicide bomber in the White House named Barack Obama. The what is “Cloward-Piven.” Obama has exploded spending, entitlements, dependency, regulations and debt to destroy capitalism and the US economy. He has set world records in each of those categories- the most spending ever, the most entitlement spending ever, the most regulations and cost of regulations ever, the most debt ever created in world history. Cloward-Piven.

The facts are in. The results are in. No one could be this stupid. No one could be this ignorant. No one could produce a record this bad by mistake. It isn’t possible. We clearly have a suicide bomber in the White House.

Democrats Are Crybabies

Democrats are Crybabies

When I was five and six-years-old there was an expression common to most five and six-year-olds. That expression was crybaby.

A crybaby is someone who pouts and cries when then they don’t get their way. In extreme cases, a crybaby will even pout and cry when they do get their way. Crybabies are absorbed with themselves, and their outbursts often come at the expense of well-meaning people around them.

A common characteristic of crybabies is their refusal to acknowledge evidence, facts, and common sense. It does no good for mom to explain to little Debbie that she can’t have the sandbox all to herself, because other little children came to the park to play in the sandbox, too. Little Debbie will have none of it. She’ll scream and wail until the parents of those other children pull their sons and daughters out of the sandbox and she has it all to herself.

Most children are taught not to be crybabies. They’re taught that part of growing up involves seeing things from the other person’s point of view, that sometimes sacrifices have to be made for the common good, that personal feelings must often be put aside. Those are all lessons that democrats and progressives have never learned.

Democrats and progressives live life according to their feelings. If something makes them feel good, then they demand it, regardless of the consequences to other people. Like the example of Debbie above in her sandbox, they live in a myopic world ruled by their own capricious desires. They are the ultimate crybabies.

When Lincoln and the Republican Party abolished slavery, petulant Democrats flew into a rage and created the Ku Klux Klan. For more than a hundred years, they terrorized both black and white Americans. Why? Because their feelings were hurt and they didn’t get their way.

Today, 150 years later, that racism still exists in the Democratic Party via welfare, affirmative action, and dumbed down education.

More recently, we’ve seen crybaby Democrats take to the streets in looting frenzies in Missouri and Baltimore. Why? Because the media fed them a false narrative that hurt their feelings. Their reaction? Wail, scream and pout.

Have you ever seen a toddler fly into a rage and knock down a store display or hurl their own toys against the wall? Ask yourself whether there’s really any difference between that child and the childish adults you saw acting out in Ferguson and Baltimore.

Have you ever seen a toddler throw a fit in a supermarket or other public place? You would think that any reasonable parent would take the child quietly outside until they cooled down. However, my experience has been the opposite. I almost always see the parent ignoring the child, who continues to scream, wail and destroy, much to the detriment of the other shoppers. The parent doesn’t care about those other shoppers.

Ask yourself whether there’s really any difference between the actions of those parents and the actions of the Democratic Governor of Missouri, who apparently ordered the National Guard to stand down during the recent riots, or the actions of the Democratic Mayor of Baltimore who gave the rioters “space to destroy.”

Are you beginning to see a pattern here? Are you beginning to see a connection between the actions of the parent and that of the crybaby child, and the actions of the leaders in the Democrat Party and that of the crybaby rioters? Each one feeds the other, and it all stems from a lack of maturity, a refusal to face reality, and a total disregard for the wellbeing of others.

The parent of that crybaby child is unconcerned with that child’s future development. Their only concern is with their feelings in the present moment, even if it hurts the child. Likewise, the leadership of the Democratic Party is unconcerned with the future development of society and its citizens. Their only concern is with their present feelings, even if it hurts the very people who look to them for leadership.

Crybabies and those who enable them have no concern for the rights or feelings of others. Their only concern is with themselves. For a child or five or six, that’s understandable. For an adult who belongs to the Democrat Party or calls themselves Progressive, it’s inexcusable.

Democrats are crybabies.

Jay Z Bails Out Violent Protesters

By Doyle Murphy of the New York Daily News

Beyoncé and Jay Z wired ‘tens of thousands’ of dollars to bail out protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson, Mo., a writer says.

Jay Z and Beyoncé bankrolled protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson with tens of thousands of dollars in bail money, a writer and social activist close to him claimed.

“I can say I’ve personally helped facilitate donations they’ve given to protesters directly and that they never ask for anything in return, especially publicity,” author dream hampton told the Daily News in an email.

The writer, who collaborated on Jay Z’s book “Decoded,” first revealed the power couple’s behind-the-scenes support in a series of tweets on Sunday morning.

“When we needed money for bail for Baltimore protesters, I asked hit Jay up, as I had for Ferguson, wired tens of thousands in mins.” hampton wrote.

Like Father Like Daughter: Dominique Sharpton Sues City for $5 Million After “Spraining” Her Ankle

image

From Neal Colgrass of http://www.newser.com

(NEWSER) – Al Sharpton’s daughter is suing New York City for $5 million after apparently taking a spill and suffering severe injuries—a story the New York Post is reporting with some glee. “Shakedown artist Al Sharpton’s eldest child wants $5 million from city taxpayers,” the paper says, referring to boycotts and protests by the reverend that elicited corporate donations. Dominique Sharpton fell on craggy pavement at a Manhattan crosswalk on Oct. 2 last year and was “severely injured, bruised, and wounded,” suffering “multiple ligament and tendon tears,” according to a lawsuit. She “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries,” the suit adds. After the fall, she reportedly wrote on Instagram that “I sprained my ankle real bad lol.”

Dominique, who is membership director of her dad’s National Action Network, was seen in a walking boot for weeks after the tumble. But she’s been moving around since, joining NAN’s Justice for All march in December and wearing high heels, the Post notes. She also posted on Instagram that “We hiked UP the mountain” on her current Bali vacation, adding, “YES I ALMOST DIED GETTING UP THERE LOL” (the Blaze has a screenshot). Whatever happens, her lawsuit isn’t the first: New York City has paid $60 million in 885 uneven-pavement cases over a 22-month stretch. So how did Dominique decide on $5 million? Her lawyer says his firm chose the number “as a safeguard for Ms. Sharpton in a worst-case scenario.”

If Ignorance Is Bliss, Why Are Democrats Such Angry Extremists?

Whenever I hear the expression “Ignorance is bliss”, I think about a television sitcom, or the actors I see in television commercials or in print ads. They’re not just happy, they’re giddy. Indescribably giddy. All because they just saved 15% on their car insurance, or scored tickets to the latest concert. Life, filled with calamities, goes on all around them, but they’re oblivious. Their lives are laughter and mirth.

I can count the number of people I know like that in real life on one hand.

One was a girl I worked with. She was short and covered with tattoos. She smiled constantly. She had a witty mind and every verbal exchange was good for a laugh or a smile. She had no clue about politics or current events. She was nineteen-years-old with a two-year-old daughter, a live-in boyfriend, and she was sleeping her way through every male in the company.

The second was a girl I dated briefly. She also had a witty mind and a contagious laugh. In fact, she never knew when to stop laughing. Everything was a joke. I have no idea where she is now.

The last one was an actress I performed with. She knew nothing of current events, but thought she did. Of course, she was a leftist. Her whole existence was acting, singing and dancing. Last I heard she was a drunk.

So where are all these other giddy, blissful people? And how about this matter of ignorance? If we’re willing to be perfectly honest (and most people aren’t), then it’s obvious to anyone with a brain that Democrats are ignorant.

You want proof, you say? Well, take a look out the window. Look at the economic policies that have destroyed our cities. Look at the tax rates and regulations that have strangled small business owners and forced corporations to outsource jobs and factories. Look at our education system. Look at your paycheck, for crying out loud, and how little money you have left after Uncle Sam takes his cut. All of these and more are policies introduced and put into law by Democrats. And yet voters continue to elect them.

Whenever there’s a deadly shooting, the alleged shooter is a Democrat. (http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/06/11/sensible-gun-control/)

Whenever there’s a race riot, hate crime, or civil unrest, the people involved are Democrats. (http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/black-racism-race-riots/)

Whenever our country’s morals are lowered through crass and vulgar “art” or cinema, the people responsible are Democrats.

We have entire cities that have been under complete Democrat control for decades (Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore) or centuries (Atlanta), and they’re all hellholes, filled with violence, crime and anger.

I see a lot of ignorance, but not much bliss. And they all seem pretty angry to me.

Ignorance isn’t bliss. Ignorance is anger. Ignorance is hatred. Ignorance is violence. Ignorance is being a Democrat.

Jesus Was Not a Wimp

Jesus by Akian

Jesus Was Not A Wimp

The Left loves to rewrite reinvent history, and one of their favorite targets is the historical life of Jesus.

Talk to most anyone on the Left, whether a priest, a pastor, or a civilian, and you’ll come away with the impression that Jesus was a tree-hugging, diversity-loving, promoter of tolerance for all. Nothing could be further than the truth.

“And he found in the temple them that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting.

“And when he had made, as it were, a scourge of little cords, he drove them all out of the temple, the sheep also and the oxen: and the money of the changers he poured out, and the tables he overthrew.

“And to them that sold doves he said: Take these things hence, and make not the house of my Father a house of traffic.” John 2:13

Does that sound like the kind of Jesus we get from today’s watered-down Church?

Jesus was not afraid to call sin for what it is and he wasn’t above a little name-calling to make a point. Indeed, he often referred to the Leftists of his day as vipers, serpents, and hypocrites.

Jesus loved everyone, and he still does, but he also knew that to engage in homosexual acts is an abomination before God: “And whosever shall not receive you, nor hear your words: going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet. Amen I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgement than for that city.” Matthew 10:14

Jesus loved children, and he was adamantly pro-life. “And whosoever shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me: it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and he were cast into the sea.” Mark 9:41

Does that leave any doubt as to the fate of eternal damnation that awaits those who support or practice abortion?

Jesus was not a vegetarian or a member of PETA. He frequently ate fish, as did all the Apostles.

Jesus was physically strong, as evidenced by his carrying of the cross. I doubt if even 5% of today’s bodybuilders and professional athletes could manage that feat.

Jesus was not a tree-hugging environmentalist. He understood that the earth is here to serve man, not the other way around. “And in the morning, returning into the city, he was hungry. And seeing a certain fig tree by the way side, he came to it and found nothing on it but leaves only. And he saith to it: May no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And immediately the fig tree withered away.” Matthew 21:18

With all the evil occurring in the world today, Jesus would take one look at the Church’s preoccupation with the environment and “Global Warming” and call it for what it is: an insult to God.

In short, Jesus stood for everything that’s in stark contrast to the dictates of the Left (and the dictates of the Left just happen to be the platform of the Democratic Party).

The message we get from today’s Christian and Catholic leaders appears to be “go along to get along,” but that attitude is the exact opposite of everything that Jesus taught. If we wish to emulate Jesus, it’s necessary for us to follow the true example of his life, not the fairy tale version the Left would have us believe.

Bryan Fisher, the host of Focal Point, put it best: God has not called us to be nice. He called us to be good.
