When vileness is exalted among the sons of men

Was CNN in business during King David’s time?

Help, LORD, for the godly man ceases to be,
For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.

They speak falsehood to one another;
With flattering lips and with a double heart they speak.

May the LORD cut off all flattering lips,
The tongue that speaks great things;

Who have said, “With our tongue we will prevail; Our lips are our own; who is lord over us?”

“Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy,
Now I will arise,” says the LORD; “I will set him in the safety for which he longs.”

The words of the LORD are pure words;
As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times.

You, O LORD, will keep them;
You will preserve him from this generation forever.

The wicked strut about on every side
When vileness is exalted among the sons of men.

– Psalm 12 (NIV)

Rachel Dolezal faces felony charges for welfare fraud

Rachel Dolezal

A woman who lies about her race caught in more lies. Shocker, not.

From Yahoo (via HuffPo): Rachel Dolezal, the former president of NAACP’s Spokane, Washington, chapter who was outed as a white woman pretending to be black , is facing felony charges of welfare fraud, perjury and false verification for public assistance.

NBC News affiliate KHQ-TV was the first to report on the charges made this week against Dolezal. KREM 2, a CBS news affiliate, later confirmed the charges with the Spokane County prosecutor’s office. If convicted, Dolezal could face up to 15 years in prison.

Dolezal came to national attention in 2015 after her family revealed she’d been presenting herself as a black woman for years, even though they said she was born white. At the time, Dolezal was president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP and worked as a part-time instructor of Africana studies at Eastern Washington University.

The revelation forced Dolezal to resign from the NAACP. She also stopped teaching at EWU. In 2016, Dolezal, a mother of three, officially changed her name to Nkechi Diallo, though she still uses her former name on her art website and social media pages.

Washington state’s Department of Social and Health Services began investigating Dolezal in March 2017 after learning that Dolezal, who was receiving public assistance from the department, had published a book.

The investigator found that Dolezal’s book publisher typically offers contracts that include payments of $10,000 to $20,000 ― but a review of her records revealed that she’d only reported an income of $300 per month in the form of gifts from friends, according to court documents published by KHQ-TV.

The Spokane County prosecutor’s office accused Dolezal of being overpaid a total of $8,847 for food assistance and child care assistance from the state’s Department of Social and Health Services between Aug. 1, 2015, and Nov. 30, 2017.

During that period, according to the investigation, an estimated $83,924.96 had been deposited into Dolezal’s bank account in monthly installments.

Despite the controversy surrounding her racial fabrication, Dolezal still identifies as a black woman. She wrote about her experience in an autobiography, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World, and was featured in a Netflix documentary this year.

Critics have taken particular exception to Dolezal’s widespread media exposure in light of the ongoing racial injustices that black Americans experience day-today.

“We’ve probably all been guilty of sharing Dolezal’s story, or at least parts of it, at some point ― but we must recognize that it is distracting, counterproductive and unnecessary,” Lilly Workneh, then the senior editor of HuffPost Black Voices, wrote in March 2017. “Let’s return our focus to more pressing matters affecting marginalized, overlooked and misrepresented communities of color.”

Attempted Dixon school shooter used gun obtained by his mom, a prohibited possessor

stoopid

Last Wednesday, 19-year-old Matthew Milby attempted a school shooting at Dixon High School in central Illinois. The shooter was stopped by a resource officer who shot and wounded the former student.

How did the perp obtain his gun? From his mom who is a convicted felon.

Plenty of gun control laws on the books that should have prevented her from purchasing a firearm. Yet somehow the system failed, as has happened before. Beyond system failures, a convicted felon knows they are not allowed to have a gun.

From WQAD: WGN tv, a Tribune Media partner of WQAD, is reporting that suspected Dixon shooter Matthew Milby’s mother is a convicted felon who should not have legally been able to purchase a gun.

The Illinois State Police has confirmed Julie Milby purchased the 9-mm semi-automatic rifle her son brought to school Wednesday. But court records in Florida show her criminal history should have been a red flag on a background check.

On Wednesday Julie Milby told reporters, “There’s no justification for what he’s done. And he will take full responsibility for that.”

She also claimed she didn’t know how he got the gun. “We don’t have guns,” she said at the time. “I don’t have any guns in the house.”

Yet state police say it was her gun and she purchased it in 2012.

How she got it is still unclear. A review of court records shows Julie Milby, previously known as Julie Mitchell, was convicted of felony battery and felony resisting an officer with violence in Osceola County, Florida in 1991.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says because of that conviction she would not have been able to get a gun from a licensed dealer in the state of Florida.

Julie Milby did not answer her door Friday when WGN Investigates arrived.

Her attorney Tom Murray told WGN he believes she bought the gun in Illinois, legally, and with a FOID card.  But he did not know about her 1991 felony convictions.

Illinois State Police won’t specify how she got the gun, or whether they ran a proper background check, because the case is still under investigation.

But in Illinois a felony conviction anywhere in the country disqualifies someone from getting a FOID card, which you need to buy a gun in Illinois.

When running a background check on Julie Milby, numerous felony convictions are shown. Someone in Florida stole her identity at one point. That individual claimed to be Julie when arrested. However, Florida officials say that happened after her 1991 felony convictions.

Florida officials say all of those cases still should have shown up on a background check for a gun, though, because they have not been officially removed from her record.

Milby also has an extensive arrest record in Lee County, Illinois. None of those cases, however, include felony convictions.

Pathetic: ABC News suspends Brian Ross for four weeks for spreading fake news

brian ross fake news

Wow, he gets to enjoy the holidays with his family. Such a serious punishment. Wretched hacks.

From MSN: ABC News has announced that Brian Ross would be suspended for four weeks without pay “effective immediately.”

“It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience – these are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday,” the network said in a statement on Saturday. “Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay.”

Ross came under considerable fire on Friday after he erroneously reported on live television that then-candidate Donald Trump had instructed Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians. In a correction seven hours later, the channel admitted that it was “President-elect” Trump who had made the request of Flynn — a pretty significant difference.

ABC issued a correction on Twitter and also updated their original article.

ABC has sustained withering criticism from all corners of the internet since the error first became known Friday.

“We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday,” the network continued in its latest statement. “The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process.  As a result of our continued reporting over the next several hours ultimately we determined the information was wrong and we corrected the mistake on air and online,” it concluded.

It’s not the first time Ross has come under fire for playing fast and loose with the facts, either. In 2012, he falsely suggested that the Aurora shooter Jim Holmes had been a member of the Colorado Tea Party — he was not.

Changing their tune: Clinton Foundation won’t donate Weinstein’s campaign donations

hillary clinton

Did anyone really believe that the Clinton’s would give back money?

From Daily Mail: The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes.

The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape.

Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity.

The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton said last week she would re-gift his campaign donations to charity.

Weinstein was a major bundler for Clinton, hosting fundraising events with deep-pocketed Hollywood donors, and personally contributed over $35,000 to her 2016 presidential campaign.

A spokesperson for the Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com that the group will not return Weinstein’s donations, which totaled between $100,000 and $250,000. He said Weinstein’s last contribution to the group was in 2014.

The spokesman said the foundation already spent the money on its programs, such as lowering the cost of HIV medication and supporting women and girls in developing countries.

The foundation said it supports commitments to combat human trafficking, and runs the No Ceilings Project ‘which aims to advance the full participation of girls and women around the world’ through ‘data-driven analysis on gender inequality, an in-depth conversation series, innovative partnerships, and CGI commitments.’

The explanation comes after foundation board member Chelsea Clinton ducked questions about Weinstein’s money from a DailyMail.com reporter while attending a Clinton Global Initiative University event at Northeastern University in Boston on Saturday. The former first daughter hustled out a side door after the event, evading a reporter as she rushed to her car surrounded by aides and security.

The Clinton Foundation and a spokesperson for Hillary Clinton had previously declined to comment on the Weinstein matter.

Organizations have been divided on whether to return money to Weinstein, who gave to numerous political and philanthropic causes over the years.

Imam: Man lied about mom dying abroad after Trump’s travel ban

mike-hager-liar

Liar Mike Hager

Media and proggies’ narrative hardest hit.

From NY Post: A man who claimed his mom died abroad after she was denied entry to the United States under President Trump’s travel ban has lied about the details surrounding her death, according to a mosque leader close to the family.

Mike Hager told a news station WJBK on Tuesday that his sick mother died in Iraq on Saturday after being barred from entering the U.S., but Imam Husham Al-Hussainy denied the story, claiming the woman died five days before the ban was enacted.

Trump has denied admission to citizens from seven majority Muslim countries, including Iraq, for 90 days, while Syrians are banned indefinitely.

Hager, who lives in Michigan, said that he was able to enter the country because he has American citizenship, but that his mother and other family members were refused.

Hager had previously contacted Al-Hussainy, who leads the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center in Dearborn. He told the Imam that his mom was suffering from kidney disease, and he planned a trip to Iraq to see her.

“The 22nd of January, his mom died,” Al-Hussainy said. “She did die but that was a couple weeks ago – before the ban.”

Al-Hussainy spoke out about the woman’s death after questions were raised about Hager’s claims.

“Since I lost my mom, [I’ve] been on heavy medication – I can’t even sleep. I did not make anything up,” Hager wrote in a text to WJBK.

Gag: Amy Schumer to play Barbie in Sony’s live action film

I wonder if they’ll film this movie in Spain? That’s where Schumer said she’d move to if Trump was elected. Course, like many celebrities, the hypocrite never did move.

Mattel must be so proud...

Mattel must be so proud…

From Daily Mail: Amy Schumer has landed the lead role in the upcoming Barbie movie, Deadline reported. Sony’s live action film based on the beloved Mattel toy is due out in 2018.

According to the site, the film will be a ‘fish out of water’ story in the mould of Splash of Big. It is set in Barbieland, a world inhabited by the many different version of the doll – more than 180 – whose names, personalities and professions are defined by the particular outfit they wear.

However Schumer’s Barbie – who isn’t ‘perfect enough, is a bit eccentric and doesn’t quite fit the mould’ – is an outcast.

She then goes on an adventure in the real world, before returning to save her hometown, armed with the knowledge that real beauty is on the inside, and the key to happiness is freeing oneself from an unattainable standard of perfection.

The site claimed the film had gone through many writers and incarnations, before a funny female empowerment plot caught Schumer’s eye and she signed on.

In her 57 years, more than one billion Barbies have been sold worldwide, cementing her place as a pop culture icon.

Let's hope Schumer doesn't do this in the movie to prove she "doesn't quite fit the mould."
