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

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.

Oakland Athletics Go Homo

Per http://guardianlv.com/2015/04/oakland-pitcher-and-girlfriend-to-fill-stadium-for-lgbt-night/

The Oakland Athletics are holding their first ever LGBT Pride night on June 17, 2015. Unfortunately, not everyone was happy with this announcement and some season ticket holders have said that they would be selling their tickets to the game, which is against the San Diego Padres. Enter Oakland pitcher, Sean Doolittle and his girlfriend Eireann Michael Dolan, who have stepped up to make sure the stadium is filled for the first ever LGBT night.

Doolittle and Dolan, have said that they would purchase the unwanted tickets, in order to make sure that the stadium was full for the event. Dolan even took to her personal blog to say that people are entitled to their own beliefs, and that while she could not stop the people from selling their tickets, she also would not tell people they were right or wrong for their actions or ideas. Instead, she says that if attending an Oakland A’s game on a night dedicated to LGBT Pride would make people uncomfortable, then it is better that they sell their tickets. She then points out that she has the perfect buyer in herself.

Dolan is willing to buy any of the unwanted game tickets for June 17 at face value. Anyone interested in selling those tickets is asked to send her a Tweet at @EireannDolan. Then she goes on to say what will happen to the reclaimed tickets. Any tickets she purchases will then be donated to the Bay Area Youth Center’s Our Space community for LGBTQ youth.

In order to fill the Oakland stadium on LGBT Pride night, pitcher Doolittle and girlfriend Dolan have even set up a GoFundMe account in order to raise money to purchase all the tickets. They will then match the funds raised up to $3,000. The original goal of the fundraiser was $6,000, which was met in less than 24 hours. Dolan went back into the fundraiser thanking everyone for the money already raised and then upped the goal amount to $10,000, after the Oakland A’s opened three additional seating sections for the night. In the fundraiser post, Dolan specified that any money raised over the goal, would be split between three local charities, AIDS Project East Bay, Frameline and Our Space.

Since the fundraiser started on March 31, over $13,000 has been raised by over 300 individuals. There have been over 700 shares of the campaign as well. In the original post on the fundraising page, Dolan expressed her happiness and surprise over the reactions of so many people. Many offered to donate their tickets to Our Space, with still others offering to donate money to help buy the unwanted tickets. This outpouring of support was what inspired her to set up the GoFundMe page.

All of the money raised to fill the stadium for the first ever Oakland Athletics LGBT Pride night are prior to the matching contribution from the pitcher and his girlfriend. This means that with a little over 24 hours into the efforts to purchase the June 17 tickets, over $16,000 will have been put towards supporting not only the LGBT Pride event but also local charities.

Catholics Need Not Apply

‘Catholics need not apply’: Toronto city council blasted for rejecting appointee over her Catholic views

Catholic , Freedom Of Religion , Toronto

TORONTO, April 2, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) — Two Toronto Catholic trustees have accused Toronto city hall of anti-Catholic bias after councilors voted 20-17 on March 31 to bar Catholic school trustee Angela Kennedy from the Toronto public health board because of her Catholic views.

Kennedy and Toronto Catholic school board chair Mike Del Grande are backed up by their board, which released a statement April 2 objecting to the city’s “discriminatory treatment” of Kennedy. “Ms. Kennedy has been unfairly vilified for her personal views on matters relating to her position as an elected Catholic Trustee, which in our opinion is a flagrant violation of her religious freedoms,” Del Grande stated in the release.

Kennedy told LifeSiteNews that news of her selection – the first time in 13 years a Catholic trustee had been appointed to fill the single school board seat on the 13-member public health board – was leaked to the media “a couple of days ago.”

Councilor Joe Mihevc, chair of the public health board, then took the “unprecedented” step of introducing a motion Monday night to replace her with public school trustee Chris Glover, she said.

Toronto Catholic District School Board trustee Angela Kennedy
Kennedy is staunchly pro-life, opposed to so-called “gay-straight alliances,” and has voted against using the schools to disseminate the HPV vaccination.

“You cannot put on the recreation committee someone that is against sports and recreation,” Mihevc argued, according to the City Centre Mirror. “You cannot put on the committee of adjustment someone who’s against development.”

Mihevc repeated similar analogies to the Toronto Sun’s Don Peat April 1, when he dismissed the charges of anti-Catholicism. “You should not be chosen for the library board if you are opposed to the library system,” Mihevc, who said he’s Catholic, told Peat. “You should not be on the committee of adjustment if you can’t support the mandate of committee of adjustment which is minor variances, if you’re going to oppose everything.”

Mihevc’s office told LifeSiteNews that the councilor was busy all day and tomorrow as well, and not be available to comment.

Both Del Grande and Kennedy say the city’s vote amounts to anti-Catholic discrimination, a charge supported by Canada’s national pro-life, pro-family lobbying group Campaign Life Coalition.

“I knew this was coming, I could have written the script,” Del Grande told LifeSiteNews. “Catholics need not apply. This is discrimination at its best.” Catholics make up 33 percent of Toronto’s population, but when it comes to a seat at the table or representation on council, “we’re no different from the Jews, the blacks, or the Irish,” he said. “This city mouths one thing and does another.”

Del Grande found it particularly disturbing that Mihevc, who “claims to be a Catholic” was the one who “led the charge” against Kennedy.

“I’m pretty disappointed,” Kennedy told LifeSiteNews. “I feel like my religious freedom, my freedom of speech, my freedom of conscience, my freedom of religion to hold the views that I believe in, they have been violated.”

She is discussing options to appeal the decision with her lawyer, Kennedy added, and is considering filing a complaint with the city’s integrity commissioner, and the human rights commission.

Kennedy, who has been a registered nurse for 45 years, said that the appointment committee selected her after “a rigorous application process and an interview and an appointment from my board.”

In the board’s press release, Kennedy stated that, “for nearly half a century, I have been providing residents of this great and diverse city with quality healthcare without prejudice or discrimination on the basis of their religious beliefs, sexual orientation or political affiliation – And I expected to receive the same treatment.”

City hall has ignored its own process by voting her out, she told LifeSiteNews. “Their own selection committee nominated me, now they’ve turned around and said, you can’t have a position on the board of health.”

Joe Cressy, Paula Fletcher, and Gord Perks were among councilors who voted against Kennedy on March 31. “These are actually human rights issues, the right for gays and lesbians to lead an equal life in the city of Toronto,” Fletcher said, according to the Toronto Star.

Perks objected that Kennedy was unsuitable, because the city health board delivers certain programs such as encouraging safer sex. The motion was about “whether or not we are prepared to appoint people who support the legal mandate of the entity they are being appointed to,” he was quoted as saying in the Star.

Mayor John Tory supported Kennedy’s appointment, but made it clear he disagreed with her views. “If we started applying every test based on whether we disagree with somebody’s views on people we appoint to things . . . it’s sure going to change the nature of this place,” he said.

During the council meeting, counselors Fletcher and Cressy referenced Campaign Life Coalition’s website, which recorded Kennedy’s votes as a Catholic trustee.

Jonathan Goldsbie of NOW Magazine tweeted that Paula Fletcher “touches on Kennedy’s opposition to HPV vaccine: ‘This is a vaccine Campaign Life doesn’t like because it’s about HAVING SEX!’” He also tweeted: “Here’s Kennedy’s voting record, from which [Counselor Joe] Cressy was reading” and referred to Campaign Life Coalition’s website.

Campaign Life Coalition’s Jack Fonseca said, “The opposition to Angela’s appointment, seemingly spearheaded by Councilor Mihevc, is clearly rooted in anti-Christian bigotry. He opposes her appointment because he doesn’t like her Catholic religious beliefs. That’s discrimination under the Ontario Human Rights Code.”

Toronto’s board of health consists of six councilors, six citizens and one school board representative. Del Grande, formerly a city councilor for Scarborough-Agincourt, said that school board seat used to alternate between Catholic and public school boards each year. “When public health wants to come in to our schools, and we are one third of the population, do you not think we should have any voice?”

Del Grande had written to the appointment committee on Kennedy’s behalf, pointing out that “ongoing lack of representation” from Catholics on the Board of Health “is an enormous disservice to this large constituency,” according to the City Centre Mirror.

“Angela Kennedy wouldn’t be enough to overtake the board of health,” he told LifeSiteNews, “but she would bring to the table a different lens. She’s a nurse, she’s a woman, and yes, she’s a practicing Catholic.” Toronto’s motto, he added, is “diversity is our strength.”

Both Kennedy and Del Grande noted that the nomination process is usually conducted in private. After Kennedy’s selection was leaked to the media, she was questioned by a reporter about her views on abortion and gay-straight alliances, and asked if she is “homophobic,” she told LifeSiteNews.

Del Grande, formerly Toronto’s budget chief and a three-term councilor, said that the city “made a grave, grave error” by disclosing Kennedy’s name before the appointment was announced. “I was there 11 years, when we dealt with these in things in private.”

“Angela’s name should not have been in the public domain, this is a private item in private session,” he added. “Not only was she turned down but she was put out for public execution.”

CLC’s Fonseca urged “fair-minded Torontonians who believe that employment discrimination on the basis of religion is wrong” to contact their councilor and “demand they allow Angela’s appointment to continue.”

Why Are Feminists All So Damn UGLY?

image While reading DCG’s recent post http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2015/03/28/hey-guys-your-handy-guide-to-dating-a-feminist/ a revelation occurred to me: feminism is a conspiracy. A conspiracy created by big pharma in order to sell millions of dollars worth of Viagra!

Outlandish, you say. Not at all! Have you ever been to a feminist rally or seen pictures of feminists? What’s the first thing you notice? If you’re a male, like me, I know what your answer is: My gosh, they’re all UGLY! Can you see the conspiracy now???

By dismissing beauty, femininity, and girlish charm, feminism promotes ugliness. It turns beautiful, free-spirited girls into manly, dogma-spouting zombies. It brainwashes them, destroys their individuality, and casts them adrift in the sea of sameness; they become corks bobbing in the ocean of political correctness. (And ugly corks at that.) Talk about useful idiots! (http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/12/29/are-you-a-useful-idiot/)

Now do you see the conspiracy??? Confronted by all this ugliness, men can no longer get it up! Who wants to get intimate with a brainwashed shrew? Who wants to make love with someone who looks like their brother Hank? One look at these “feminists” and any normal man goes completely limp! Then Viagra sales go through the roof!

Why it’s downright brilliant! They take young, red-blooded American males, send them off to college where they’re surrounded by dimwitted, Marxist-quoting, butched-out females, and for the rest of his life, the poor guy needs medication to get a rise!

It’s genius, I tell you! Genius! And look at the ancillary sales in liquor and mind-altering drugs! A guy would have to get stone-faced drunk in order to find feminist women attractive. No wonder frat parties serve so much booze!

Can you imagine being married to a feminist??? The horror, the horror! There’s no surprise why the divorce rate is so high now, is there?

Forget about preaching abstinence to youngsters. Send some of these feminazis around to the high schools. Teen sex will disappear faster than you can say Hilary Clinton.

Kinda explains why lesbianism is on the rise, too. When the feminists discover that no man wants to touch them, they turn to the only available source of intimacy: other feminists!

All those false rape accusations we keep hearing about from the universities? It’s their wounded pride, don’t you see? Their egos can’t take the rejection, so they make up stories!

I’d like to keep writing, but I don’t have time. Gotta call my stock broker and load up on shares from companies selling Viagra. I figure I’ll be a millionaire in no time.
