8 most narcissistic Hollyweirdos

Most actors are narcissistic.

But the eight below are among the most narcissistic and arrogant.

  1. Gwyneth Paltrow:
    • Voted for Obama.
    • Raised campaign $ for Hillary Clinton.
    • “I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year.”
    • “I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as [difficult as being an actress]. Of course there are challenges, but it’s not being on set.”
  2. Faye Dunaway:
    • “Don’t you know who I am?”
    • In 1980, Dunaway had a son, Liam, with her second husband, British photographer Terry O’Neill. “In 2003, despite Dunaway’s earlier indications that she had given birth to Liam, Terry O’Neill revealed that their son was adopted.” –Wikipeida
    • I know Dunaway, 77, has had many plastic surgeries, but what can account for why her philtrum (the area of the face between the nose and the upper lip) became so preternaturally long?
  3. Miles Teller (who’s dat?):
    • “I was thinking about how I probably think I’m better-looking than the public thinks I am.”
  4. Catherine Zeta-Jones:
    • “A million dollars isn’t a lot of money for people like us.”
    • “One thing I’m not is humble anymore. I’m sick of being humble. I really am. ‘So sorry I’m rich, so sorry I’m married to a movie star, so sorry I’m not so bad looking.’ No sorrys. Enough.”
  5. James Cameron:
    • “I’m the king of the world! Whoo!”
  6. Shannen Doherty:
    • “Really? A town car? You send a town car to take me to the airport, not a limo?”
  7. Katherine Heigl
  8. Kanye West

Stop feeding their already bloated egos by watching their movies/TV or listening to their music/rap.

Christine Ford, the woman who accuses Judge Kavanaugh of sexual assault 36 years ago

Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court had been scheduled for a vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 12, 2018.

At the last minute, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the top Democrat on the committee whose personal driver of 20 years is a Chinese spy, blocked the vote by forwarding an anonymously-written letter to the Justice Department which accuses Kavanaugh of unspecified “sexual misconduct” with an unnamed woman when they were both high school students. Judge Kavanaugh is 53 years old, which means the alleged sexual misconduct took place (if it did) at least 35 years ago.

Feinstein had the letter, dated July 30, in her possession for weeks. It is not explained why Feinstein withheld the letter from the Senate hearings on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination, but disclosed the letter only after Kavanaugh had testified at the hearings, on the day when the Senate Judiciary Committee had been scheduled to vote on the nomination.

This is what we now know about Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser:

(1) Although the letter-writer had asked that her identity be kept confidential and her letter not made public, on Sept. 16 she went public. She spoke to the Washington Post, which published her story on Monday, Sept. 17, five days after Sen. Feinstein had given the letter to the Justice Department. She is Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, 51, a research psychologist at Palo Alto University in northern California.

(2) Ford said “she believes” that in 1982, in a house in Montgomery County, Maryland (the exact location and owners of which she does not know) a drunk Kavanaugh pinned her on the bed, groped her, tried to take off her clothing, and covered her mouth from screaming. Ford told The Washington Post, “I thought he might inadvertently kill me. He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing,” and that she was able to escape when Kavanaugh’s friend, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them, sending all three tumbling. She ran from the room, briefly locked herself in a bathroom and then fled the house. She told no one about the alleged assault until she brought it up in couples therapy with her husband in 2012.

(3) At the time of the alleged incident, Kavanaugh was a student at the all-male Georgetown Preparatory School; Ford was a student at another private school, Holton-Arms.

(4) Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegations. He said in a statement: “I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time.” (New York Post)

(5) Ford has no corroborating witnesses:

  • Mark Judge, the high-school buddy of Kavanaugh whom Ford claims to be in the room during the alleged assault, denies that the assault took place, says he has “no memory” of the incident and  does not want to testify. He said: “It never happened. I never saw anything like what was described” and that Ford’s accusation does match Kavanaugh’s character — “It is not who he is.” (New York Post)
  • Ford’s schoolmate Cristina King Miranda claimed she knew about the attempted rape, but quickly retracted her claim when critics questioned her account, noting it contradicted Ford’s. Miranda now admits on Twitter she has no first-hand knowledge of the assault. (The New American)
  • Patrick J. Smyth, a classmate of Kavanaugh whom Ford alleges was at the house party, denies Ford’s story in a letter to and received by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sept. 18 (CNS News):

“I understand that I have been identified by Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as ‘PJ’ who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post. … I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question, nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.

“Personally speaking, I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh toward women. To safeguard my own privacy and anonymity, I respectfully request that the Committee accept this statement in response to any inquiry the committee may have.”

  • On Sept. 21, 2018, a 4th person said to have been at the party denies any knowledge of the sexual assault. Leland Ingram Keyser, a longtime friend of Christine Ford, says through her attorney: “Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.” (Breitbart)

(6) Ford gave The Washington Post the results of a polygraph examination allegedly conducted by a former FBI agent in August, which purportedly show that she’s truthful in her allegations. The agent, Jerry Hanafin, said in an interview that the results showed “no deception indicated” and that “she was being truthful.” (New York Times). However, her attorney Debra Katz refused to disclose who had paid for the examination (which costs $500 to $1,000) or provide details on how it was conducted. Experts say lie detector tests are not infallible or fool-proof. A former senior FBI agent said polygraphs would have difficulty detecting deception by sociopaths, psychopaths and committed liars lacking a conscience. (FoxNews)

(7) Sen. Feinstein gave mixed messages, saying “I believe she [Ford] is credible” and “I can’t say everything’s truthful. I don’t know.” (CNN)

(8) Before going public on Sept. 17, Ford scrubbed her internet history — deleting all her social media accounts, including her LinkedIn page, and even removed her entire high school year book. (Mike Cernovich).

(9) Ford is a leftwing activist:

  • She is an open-borders activist who has signed anti-Trump immigration letters.
  • In 2016, she posted on Facebook that Supreme Court justice Antonin “Scalia-types must be banned from the profession of law”. Like Scalia, Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a conservative and constitutionalist.

(10) Ford received five student reviews when she taught social work at California State University Fullerton. One review said “Many dislike Professor Ford due to her dark personality”; another wrote, “she is exact opposite of what she teaches”. (Rate My Professors)

(11) Ford’s recovered high school yearbook is full of accounts of wild, drunken sex parties she had attended. One passage reads: “And there were always parties to celebrate any occasion. Although these parties are no doubt unforgettable, they are only a memory lapse for most, since loss of consciousness is often an integral part of the party scene.”

(12) According to a Palo Alto University document from 2015 (see page 97), Christine Blasey, Ph.D. is a professor at Palo Alto University and a “Director of Biostatistics at Corcept Therapeutics.” As “Blasey CM,” Christine Blasey Ford, whose middle name is Margaret, co-authored 8 research papers with Corcept Therapeutics, which manufacturers and markets an RU-486 abortion pill, mifepristone. As 19888560, Blasey also appears on numerous published studies at PubMed — all funded by Corcept Therapeutics. Mike Adams of Natural News points out:

Blasey is a paid researcher for an abortion pill company with a lot to lose if Kavanaugh is confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court…. The company is aggressively seeking to expand the FDA-approved applications of its drugs. Thus, the financial future of this company could be heavily impacted by abortion remaining legal in the United States….

[H]aving Kavanaugh on the court represents a dire threat…to abortion “rights.” In turn, this represents a threat to Corcept Therapeutics, the drug company at which Christine Blasey has worked for years, helping to produce research that expands the company’s market reach and drug applications…. Blasey has a financial motivation to defeat Kavanaugh and keep him off the U.S. Supreme Court.

(13) Ford’s family members:

  • Her brother, Ralph Blasey, worked for a law firm that paid Fusion GPS. (True Pundit)
  • Ford’s parents were defendants in a foreclosure case in 1996 in Maryland in which Kavanaugh’s mother, Martha G. Kavanaugh, was the presiding district judge who ruled against Ford’s parents. (Gateway Pundit)

Rejecting Monday — the Senate’s date for a hearing on Ford’s accusations — her lawyer says Ford “would be prepared to testify next week” if senators offer “terms that are fair and which ensure her safety.” Ford claims to have received death threats.

Why are feminists fixated on the vagina?

The feminist movement began with the assertion that women are more than their bodies — that biology is not a woman’s destiny.

Oddly, today’s feminists seem to equate women with exactly that — their biology, specifically, the vagina.

The obsession began with the 1996 debut of the play, The Vagina Monologues, written by Eve Ensler to, in her words, “celebrate the vagina”.

The Vagina Monologues is made up of various personal monologues on the “feminine experience” — sex, sex work, body image, love, rape, menstruation, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm, the various common names for the vagina. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of “female empowerment” and the ultimate “embodiment of individuality”.

22 years later, feminists and the Left have only become even more obsessed with the vagina.

Note: The vagina is the elastic, muscular part of the female genital tract that leads tothe cervix, the entrance to the uterus or womb. Entrance into the vagina is via the vulva or labial folds. Often, vagina is mistaken for the vulva. An example is actress Cameron Diaz‘s reference to shaving her vagina, which makes no sense because hair doesn’t grow inside a woman’s vagina unless she is afflicted by some very strange disease. What Diaz really means is shaving her pubic mound. (See “Stupid Hollyweirdo: Cameron Diaz has a hairy vagina“)

Obsession with the vagina/vulva finds expression in everyday objects, from the infamous pussy hats and vagina suits in the Women’s March (against Trump) on January 21, 2017, to Christmas ornaments, mugs, vases, pillows, and furniture.

I just don’t get it.

Why should the vagina be “celebrated” and how does this celebrating “empower” women?

Trump-haters triggered by ‘Presidential Alert’ cell-phone text message

UPDATE:

The cell-phone alert is postponed to October 3, 2018, because of Hurricane Florence. (iHeartRadio)

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Originally scheduled for today, at 2:18 p.m. EDT, all U.S. cellphones will make a loud tone, vibrate, and receive a “Presidential Alert” text message.

Do not be alarmed.

The message will read:

THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.

Two minutes after the cell phone alert, a test alert will also be sent to radio and television broadcasters, interrupting programming for about one minute.

The alert is a test of a previously unused alert system to warn the public about national emergencies. Obama had signed a law in 2016 requiring Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to create a system allowing the president to send cellphone alerts regarding public safety emergencies.

Since the wireless emergency alert system began in 2012, it has issued over 36,000 alerts for situations such as missing children, extreme weather and natural disasters, but never a presidential directive. The president has sole responsibility for determining when the national-level alerts are used.

Cell phone users can opt out of natural disaster or missing children alerts, but they will not be able to opt out of a Presidential Alert. (New York Post)

Even though it was Obama who signed the Presidential Alert system into law, the fact that cell-phones today will get a text alert from — HORRORS! — the Trump administration has triggered the already unhinged Left, making them even crazier. Some examples:

  • Actress Alyssa Milano tweets: “I don’t want this. How do we opt out, @fema? I know trump isn’t big on consent but I don’t consent to this.”
  • @YBNSteve: “I don’t want alerts on my phone from any president let alone trump”
  • @JohnPavlovitz: “I want to know how to opt out of this Presidency.”
  • @ScottG305: “The only message I want from DT is that he is resigning. That aside I opt out.”
  • @KatFtAV: “I want to opt out of his fake presidency AND him having access to my fucking cell phone!!! HELL TO THE NO!!!”

Catholic Church in Crisis: Pedophile cardinal; Pennsylvania priests abused 1k children; homoerotic church service

Mark Taylor, the Florida fireman who predicted the presidency of Donald John Trump on April 28, 2011, wrote in “All Roads Lead to Rome,” January 25, 2018:

The Spirit of God says, “The Pope and the Vatican…are not furthering my kingdom but are aiding the kingdom of darkness…. This will be the last Pope, for what I the Lord God am about to do. I will expose this Pope and all those under his command for all the corruption he and the Vatican have been involved in for centuries…. This Pope, the Vatican and all its leadership, will come crumbling down. I will pull back the veil to show how deep and dark the deception has been. You whisper in your inner chambers ‘we answer to no one. No one is above us; No one can hold us accountable.’ I the Lord God see it all and the time has come when I will now hold you accountable for your darkness. This exposure will be of such magnitude that the people will say. ‘What do we do now? Where do we go now? We want nothing to do with this. We have no religion now.’ Millions will walk away from their religion, as this will affect other religions as well.”

“The church is facing a crisis that it hasn’t faced perhaps since the Middle Ages,” said Joan Mann Thomas, chair of the parish council at St. Anselm Parish in Ross, California.

Thomas was not exaggerating.

On August 22, 2018, Archbishop Carlo Viganò, former Apostolic Nuncio (the Vatican’s ambassador) to the United States, called for the resignation of Pope Francis for protecting pedophile Cardinal and former Archbishop of Washington, D.C., Theodore McCarrick.

McCarrick is but one of the triggers of the Catholic Church in crisis. The subjects of this post, the first of a series of posts on the crisis of the Catholic Church, are:

  1. Cardinal McCarrick.
  2. Pennsylvania pedophile priests.
  3. Homoerotic church service in Germany.

(1) The Pedophile Cardinal

On July 28, 2018, after shielding Cardinal McCarrick, Pope Francis “accepted” the former Archbishop of Washington, DC’s offer to resign from the College of Cardinals, and ordered the cardinal’s suspension from the exercise of any public ministry, pending “accusations made against him are examined in a regular canonical trial.”

Although McCarrick’s pedophilia had been known for some time, Pope Francis  covered up for McCarrick, ignored the sanctions that Pope Benedict XVI had imposed on McCarrick, and even made McCarrick a trusted counselor in U.S. clerical appointments, including the promotion of far-Left bishops such as Blase Cupich of Chicago and Joseph Tobin of Newark to the College of Cardinals. (The Remnant)

Accusations of 88-year-old Cardinal McCarrick’s sexual abuse include:

  • Fondling an 11-year-old boy over 40 years ago when McCarrick was a priest in Manhattan, New York. The victim, now a mature man, says the sexually abusive relationship continued for two more decades. (NY Post)
  • Groping and having sex with seminarians: Six priests of the Archdiocese of Newark said that when then-Archbishop of Newark McCarrick visited the seminary, he “would often place his hand on seminarians while talking with them, or on their thighs while seated near them.” One of the priests said McCarrick “had a type: tall, slim, intelligent – but no smokers” and that McCarrick would invite young men to stay at his house on the shore or spend the night in the cathedral rectory in central Newark. Another priest, who was an aide to New York Cardinal Terence Cooke in the early 1970s, said McCarrick’s “reputation” was already well-established by that time, and that a classmate of McCarrick, the dean of a theology school, knew about the rumors and spoke about them with the other faculty and theologians very openly.” So well-known was McCarrick’s reputation that when he was a “standing joke” that when McCarrick visited the seminary, they had to “hide the handsome ones” before he arrived. Another priest, who worked in close proximity to then-Archbishop McCarrick in the chancery, said “Priests would tell me ‘he’s sleeping with them’ all the time, but I couldn’t believe it – they seemed like perfectly normal guys.” Seminarians and priests from ordination classes spanning 30 years during the terms of McCarrick and his successor, Archbishop John Myers, said there was an active homosexual subculture of priest and seminarians within Newark’s Immaculate Conception Seminary. (Catholic News Agency)

Despite McCarrick’s well-known reputation of groping and “sleeping with” seminarians, the Vatican promoted him to the cardinalate and to archbishop of Washington, DC, in 2001.

On August 31, 2018, Catholic News Service, the news agency of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, published a 2006 letter from then-Archbishop Leonardo Sandri, which confirms that the Vatican had received information in 2000 about the sexual misconduct of McCarrick. Sandri’s letter lends credibility to accusations of a cover-up of McCarrick’s deeds at the highest echelons of the Roman Catholic Church. (New York Post)

Two other cardinals have also be accused of sexual misconduct: Australian Cardinal George Pell, one of Pope Francis’ closest advisers; and Scottish Cardinal Keith O’Brien, who is accused by former seminarians in 2013 of sexual misconduct. Two years after the first revelations came out, Francis accepted O’Brien’s resignation after the Vatican’s top abuse prosecutor conducted a full investigation.

(2) Pennsylvania Pedophile Priests and the Bishops Who Enabled Them

In 2016, Pennsylvania’s 40th Statewide Grand Jury began an investigation into allegations of child sex crimes by Catholic priests across the dioceses of Harrisburg, Allentown, Pittsburgh, Erie, Scranton and Greensburg. The six dioceses account for 54 of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties.

In June 2018, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that large portions of the grand jury’s report would be released to the public. But about two dozen current and former clergy named in the report succeeded in blocking its release, claiming it would violate their rights to due process and reputation. On July 27, Pa. Chief Justice Thomas Saylor ordered an interim report be released, with identifying information about those clergy petitioners redacted. (Penn Live)

On August 14, 2018, the 1,356-page, redacted version of the long-awaited grand jury report was released. You can read the report here. Below is a summary of the grand jury’s findings:

  • The grand jury heard the testimony of dozens of witnesses, and subpoenaed and reviewed half a million pages of internal diocesan documents.
  • The grand jury found “credible allegations” against over 300 predator priests, and identified more than 1,000 child victims from the church’s own records. “We believe that the real number — of children whose records were lost, or who were afraid ever to come forward — is in the thousands.
  • Most of the victims were boys; but there were girls too. Some were teens; many were pre-pubescent. Some were manipulated with alcohol or pornography. Some were made to masturbate their assailants, or were groped by them. Some were raped orally, some vaginally, some anally. But all of them were brushed aside, in every part of the state, by church leaders who preferred to protect the abusers and their institution above all.
  • Secrecy: In every diocese, abuse complaints were kept locked up in a “secret archive” because the church’s Code of Canon Law specifically requires the diocese to maintain such an archive.

Every diocese adopted the same strategy on pedophile priests:

  1. Use evasive euphemisms to describe the sexual assaults in diocese documents, e.g., “inappropriate contact” and “boundary issues” instead of  “rape”.
  2. Don’t conduct genuine investigations with properly trained personnel, but assign fellow clergy members to ask inadequate questions and then make credibility determinations about the colleagues with whom they live and work.
  3. Send priests for “evaluation” at church-run, wholly-inadequate psychiatric treatment centers where experts “diagnose” whether the priest was a pedophile based largely on the priest’s “self-reports,” but ignore whether the priest had actually engaged in sexual contact with a child.
  4. When a priest does have to be removed, don’t say why. Instead, tell his parishioners that he is on “sick leave,” or suffering from “nervous exhaustion,” or say nothing at all.
  5. Even if a priest is raping children, keep providing him housing and living expenses.
  6. If a predator’s conduct becomes known to the community, instead of removing him from the priesthood to ensure that no more children will be victimized, transfer him to a new location where no one will know he is a pedophile.
  7. Above all, don’t tell the police. Although child sexual abuse, even short of actual penetration, is a crime, don’t treat it as a crime. Instead, handle it “in house” as a personnel matter.

Some especially egregious cases:

  • In the Diocese of Allentown, confronted about an abuse complaint, a priest admitted, “Please help me. I sexually molested a boy.” But the diocese concluded that “the experience will not necessarily be a horrendous trauma” for the victim, and that the boy’s family should just be given “an opportunity to ventilate.” The priest was left in unrestricted ministry for several more years.
  • In the Diocese of Erie, despite a priest’s admission to assaulting at least a dozen young boys, the bishop wrote to thank him for “all that you have done for God’s people…. The Lord, who sees in private, will reward.”
  • Another priest confessed to anal and oral rape of at least 15 boys, as young as seven years old. The bishop later met with the abuser to commend him as “a person of candor and sincerity,” and to compliment him “for the progress he has made” in controlling his “addiction.” When the abuser was finally removed from the priesthood years later, the bishop ordered the parish not to say why.
  • Another priest, grooming his middle school students for oral sex, taught them how Mary had to “bite off the cord” and “lick” Jesus clean after he was born. The diocese finally removed him from ministry after 15 years and numerous additional reports of abuse.
  • One priest raped a seven-year -old girl while he was visiting her in the hospital after she’d had her tonsils out.
  • Another priest made a nine-year -old give him oral sex, then rinsed out the boy’s mouth with holy water “to purify him.”
  • One boy drank some “juice” at his priest’s house, and woke up the next morning bleeding from his rectum, unable to remember anything from the night before.
  • Another priest, who finally decided to quit after years of child abuse complaints, asked for, and received, a letter of reference for his next job — at Walt Disney World.

Although, because of the church’s coverup, almost every instance of abuse the grand jury found is too old to be prosecuted and many of the priests are dead, “presentments” — written notices that a crime occurred — have been issued against two priests in the Greensburg and Erie dioceses, respectively, who sexually assaulted children within the last decade. There may be more indictments in the future because the grand jury is continuing its investigation.

It is noteworthy that the Catholic Church neither denies nor disputes the veracity of the grand jury report. See the official responses by the Vatican and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Exorcist Fr. Gary Thomas calls the Church’s pedophile priests scandal “demonic” and predicts worse is yet to come.

(3) Priest hosts homoerotic service in church

LifeSiteNews reports, July 23, 2018, that a newly ordained priest, Fr. Fabian Ploneczka, 33, of the Rottenburg-Stuttgart diocese, celebrated his first Mass on Sunday at his home church of St. Moritz in Augsburg, featuring a homoerotic dance.

According to the Augsburger Allgemeine, the worship service included the premiere of a ballet entitled “Jeremiah: Passion of the Prophet”, featuring ballet dancer Clemens Fröhlich of Munich and a narrated libretto written by Ploneczka himself. Observers said the dancer performed dressed only in tight, skin-colored underpants.

According to an account in Kath.net:

The whole church became a dance floor, even the altar area. There the dancer took the Gospel in his hand, stepped almost naked to the ambo, and lolled suggestively in front of the altar.

A young man, naked to his waist, interrupted the service by shouting that everyone should undress. Some of the attendees, among whom were children, left early. Worshipers told kath.net the service in a consecrated church was clearly homophile and homoerotic.

Afterwards, Fr. Thomas Steiger of Tübingen, a pastor and radio personality, gave a talk on the “eroticism of the faith,” speaking of “a sensual love for Jesus.”

This series on Catholic Church in Crisis will continue tomorrow.

Liberal Hypocrisy: Global warmists attend SF climate change summit in private jets

Last week, global warming/climate change hucksters converged on San Francisco for the three-day Global Climate Action Summit, Sept. 12-14, on lowering the carbon emissions alleged to be responsible for global warming.

More than 4,000 elected officials, business executives and environmentalists from around the globe flew into San Francisco International Airport (SFO) for the Summit. So many came by fuel-guzzling, carbon-spewing private jets that they increased SFO’s corporate private jet traffic by as much as 30%.

Matier & Ross report for the San Francisco Chronicle, Sept. 16, 2018:

One of the hottest spots during the just-concluded Global Climate Action Summit was the private runway at San Francisco International Airport, where SFO spokesman Doug Yakel reports corporate jet traffic was up 30 percent over normal.

Airport sources told us that the carbon-spewing corporate jets nearly filled the landing area’s parking slots and that many had flown in for the conference.

[…] The summit was organized by Gov. Jerry Brown, who has been known to fly private.

In 2015, Brown flew with real estate mega-millionaire and major Democratic Party donor George Marcus via private jet to a climate change conference at the Vatican. The next year, the go-green governor jetted off with Marcus for a two-week trip that included stops in Italy, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine.

Harrison Ford’s private jet

According to Emily Zanotti of Daily Wire, the Global Action Climate Summit attendees included “environmental A-listers” Al Gore, actors Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin, and pop musician Dave Matthews, “all of whom can afford to and choose to fly by themselves rather than find a more eco-friendly way to attend an event dedicated to saving the planet.

Citing The Guardian, Zanotti points out that:

  • An hour’s flight on a private jet emits more carbon dioxide than most Africans do in a whole year.
  • A fully-loaded passenger jet puts between 200-300kg (o.22-0.33 ton) of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere per passenger per hour; but a half-full private Lear Jet emits 400-600kg (0.44-0.66 ton) of carbon dioxide per passenger per hour.
  • If Al Gore flew in a half-full Lear Jet, he’s responsible for the same amount of carbon dioxide as an average American family home creates in about two weeks.

Further adding to their hypocrisy, the Global Climate Action Summit attendees weren’t any more carbon conscious on the ground.

According to the New York Times, few high-profile attendees took advantage of freely available carbon-neutral ground transportation while they were in San Francisco. An expensive electric shuttle, provided to move attendees between event landmarks, was “nearly empty” all the time.

Pedophile Joe Biden calls Trump supporters ‘dregs of society’

The Cambridge Dictionary defines:

  • deplorable” as very bad; its synonyms include abominable, abysmal, ghastly, putrid, and repulsive.
  • virulent” as dangerous, poisonous, hateful and violent.
  • dregs of society” as the part of something that is considered unimportant and unwanted.

During the 2016 presidential campaign on September 9, 2016, although she means to rule over us as POTUS, Hillary Clinton contemptuously called millions of Americans “basket of deplorables”.

That’s arrogance that’s so off-the-scale, it’s Luciferian.

Last Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018, the former Vice President of the United States of America publicly called millions of Americans “virulent people” and “dregs of society”.

Biden made those remarks in his speech at the annual Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington, D.C., September 15, 2018.

Human Rights Campaign is the largest LGBT civil rights advocacy group and political lobbying organization in the United States.

To an enthusiastic crowd of advocates of LGBTQ rights, Biden attacked the millions of Americans who support President Trump, accusing them of “intolerance” and committing a “crime” of prejudice by using religion or culture as a “license to discriminate”.

Biden said (beginning at the 38:23 mark in the CSPAN video):

“We face an administration and some of its most ardent right-wing supporters from the Ku Klux Klan…and the Alt Right are trying to undo all the progress you have made, that Barack [Obama] and I have made for you….

Using religion or culture as a license to discriminate demonize the community, individuals, to score political points is no more justifiable around the world than it is at home and our policies should reflect that. [Cheers and applause]

But despite losing in the courts and in the court of public opinion, these forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made. This time they — not you — have an ally in the White House. They’re a small percentage of the American people, virulent people, some of them the dregs of society. And instead of using the full might of the executive branch to secure justice, dignity, safety for all, the president uses the White House as a literal, literal bully pulpit, callously exerting his power over those who have little or none.”

Tuesday Funnies!

I was talking with a homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended up this way.

He said, “Up until last week, I still had it all. I had plenty to eat; my clothes were washed and pressed; I had a roof over my head; I had HDTV and Internet; and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library. I was working on my MBA on-line. I had no bills and no debt. I even had full medical coverage!”

I felt sorry for him, so I asked, “What happened? Was it drugs, alcohol, divorce?”

“Oh no. Nothing like that,” he said.

(Wait for It)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

A Mormon was wandering around in a field, thinking about how good his wife, a former Baptist, had been to him and how fortunate he was to have her.

He asked God, “Why did you make her so kind-hearted?”

The Lord responded, “So you could love her, my son.”

“Why did you make her so good-looking?”

“So you could love her, my son.”

“Why did you make her such a good cook?”

“So you could love her, my son.”

The man thought about this. Then he said, “I don’t mean to seem ungrateful or anything, but why did you make her so stupid?”

“So she could love you, my son.”

And if you’ve lost the joy of innocence, take heart from this video of God’s creatures — dogs, cats, goats, sheep, foxes and even black bears — having great fun jumping on a trampoline.

US foreign aid agency spent $89.7M finding jobs for 55 Afghan women

This is how government wastes your hard-earned tax dollars.

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is a federal government agency that is primarily responsible for administering civilian foreign aid and assistance to “developing” countries.  With a budget of over $27 billion, USAID is one of the largest official aid agencies in the world, and accounts for more than half of all U.S. foreign assistance (which in absolute dollar terms is the highest in the world).

Elizabeth Harrington reports for Washington Free Beacon, Sept. 13, 2018, that USAID spent over $200 million on the Promoting Gender Equity in National Priority Program (aka Promote) to “empower” 75,000 women in in Afghanistan, but only found jobs for 55 women.

USAID trumpeted the program as part of building a “brighter future for Afghanistan” by empowering its women:

In the Transformation Decade (2015-2024), a new generation of Afghan leaders—both men and women—will emerge who are equipped with the education, skills, and desire to build a brighter future for Afghanistan. Promote is a joint commitment by the U.S. and Afghan Governments that will work to empower 75,000 women between the ages of 18-30 and help ensure these women are included among a new generation of Afghan political, business, and civil society leaders.

Promote aims to empower women to become leaders alongside their male counterparts, and ensure they have the skills, experience, knowledge, and networks to succeed. USAID has committed $216 million to fund the program, making it the largest women’s empowerment project in the U.S. Government’s history. Other international donors are able to contribute an additional $200 million to help expand the program.

Alas, the international donors turned out to be a pie-in-the-sky dream.

According to a new report released by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), no other country or organization has donated to the program, other than the United States:

As of January 2018, no international donors had contributed funding to Promote. Officials from five of the seven donor countries SIGAR spoke to said they cannot financially contribute to the Promote program or that USAID’s assumption that foreign donors would contribute $200 million for the program was an unrealistic goal.

The report says the Promote program is a five-year $216 million effort. Three years into the program, however, USAID has spent $89.7 million but “has not demonstrated whether the program has made progress” toward its goals. The goal was to find new or better jobs for 2,100 women. As of September 2017, only 55 women or 2.6% found employment — which comes to $1.5 million per woman. The report concludes, “It is unclear whether the agency can deliver the opportunities it promised the women of Afghanistan.”

In addition to falling well below its job targets, the future of the program is also in doubt, as Afghanistan is unlikely to continue the program without the United States. The report points out that “This raises questions about whether Promote is sustainable at all and could put USAID’s investment in the program in jeopardy.”

The report recommends USAID should reevaluate the program before spending its remaining taxpayer-funded budget:

Given that the program has expended $89.7 of its potential $216 million, USAID has an opportunity to reassess and adjust the program and take steps to enhance its sustainability now, rather than waiting until the program is over in 2020 or 2021.

Stephen Frank of California Political Review observes:

At a cost of $1.5 million per person, the U.S. government got 55 Afghan women jobs. Any wonder we are laughed at by the rest of the world. For about $50,000 a piece they [the women] could get a college education or vocational training. But, the more that is “spent” on the women, the more jobs for U.S. government workers there is to go around.
