Roundup

Looks like Arizona’s immigration laws worked: Violent crime is down 2-3 times the national average, among other benefits.  Too bad the Democrats are trying to find more ways to buy votes from illegal aliens.

Gambian President: We would ‘rather eat grass’ than accept homosexual behavior — The Obama administration would rather see poor people suffer than lose an opportunity to export oxymoronic “same-sex marriage.”  Hillary Clinton said that gay rights and human rights were “one and the same,” even though she and Obama are pro-abortion and ignore the rights of unborn humans.

Ineptocracy — a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Hate crime: gay activists vandalize Mark Driscoll’s Mars Hill Church — I was glad to see the church respond so graciously.  The behavior of the gay activists is egged on by false teachers who label bible-believing churches like Mars Hill as the “worst of Christianity,” while hypocritically claiming to oppose the violence against them (what would you expect from such accomplished liars?).  Expect to see more of this.  False teachers demonize the real church (not that I’m a Driscoll fan) and fan the flames of hatred against Bible believers.

It’s now been 3 full years since Senate Democrats last passed a budget — the title is the story.  If it was the Republicans you’d never hear the end of this, but I bet if you quizzed Democrats they wouldn’t even know about it.

The hypocrisy of Sojourners and Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis is boundless.  They are pro-legalized abortion, yet are running a campaign saying that Christians must be the voice for poor & vulnerable people during the election.

Illegal aliens have a nice tax $4.2b tax fraud scheme going — all with the help of your government.

EPA Official’s ‘Philosophy’ On Oil Companies: ‘Crucify Them’ – Just As Romans Crucified Random Conquered Citizens — Yes, these are your tax dollars and leaders at work.  But they are really working to keep your fuel costs low . . . right?!  Hat tip: John

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) took to the Senate floor today to draw attention to a video of a top EPA official saying the EPA’s “philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies – just as the Romans crucified random citizens in areas they conquered to ensure obedience.

Inhofe quoted a little-watched video from 2010 of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official, Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, admitting that EPA’s “general philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies.

Too bad the media isn’t giving the same attention to the corrections on the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin case as they did to sensationalizing it:

Cut and dried. Case closed.

Then the white guy became a “white Hispanic.”

Then police reports about the injuries to the back of his head turned out to be true.

Then it turned out he never used a racial epithet in his 911 call.

And when he told the dispatcher, “He looks black,” it was in response to a direct question, not an indication of motive.

And when the dispatcher told him not to follow the kid, he said, “Okay.”

But other than that.

Now the original narrative just got even more “complicated,” which is what our moral, ethical, and intellectual superiors in the media always say when they’ve failed to dumb down an already-complicated situation. Reuters reports:

Cut and dried. Case closed.

Then the white guy became a “white Hispanic.”

Then police reports about the injuries to the back of his head turned out to be true.

Then it turned out he never used a racial epithet in his 911 call.

And when he told the dispatcher, “He looks black,” it was in response to a direct question, not an indication of motive.

And when the dispatcher told him not to follow the kid, he said, “Okay.”

But other than that.
But a more nuanced portrait of Zimmerman has emerged from a Reuters investigation into Zimmerman’s past and a series of incidents in the community in the months preceding the Martin shooting…

The 28-year-old insurance-fraud investigator comes from a deeply Catholic background and was taught in his early years to do right by those less fortunate. He was raised in a racially integrated household and himself has black roots through an Afro-Peruvian great-grandfather – the father of the maternal grandmother who helped raise him…

Though civil rights demonstrators have argued Zimmerman should not have prejudged Martin, one black neighbor of the Zimmermans said recent history should be taken into account.

“Let’s talk about the elephant in the room. I’m black, OK?” the woman said, declining to be identified because she anticipated backlash due to her race. She leaned in to look a reporter directly in the eyes. “There were black boys robbing houses in this neighborhood,” she said. “That’s why George was suspicious of Trayvon Martin.”

Guess she’s a racist too.

Loosening of UK IVF laws causes spike in fatherless children — That is tragic that the utter selfishness of the lesbians will deliberately result in fatherless children. That’s even worse than gays and lesbians adopting, which is very bad.

Big Roundup

steelersGo Steelers!  They are back in the Super Bowl, which means that the universe has temporarily regained alignment.  They are an amazingly successful small market franchise.

Here’s a video of the Immaculate Reception, aka the Best. Play. Ever.  I was in 4th grade and my relatives from Pittsburgh were visiting.  They turned the game on in time to see that play.  Watching it again reminds me of how well Bradshaw scrambled around to keep it alive. 

I was hooked on the Steelers after that.  They’ve always been my favorite team, but I’m in a start-watching-when-they-get-deep-in-the-playoffs mode now.  I don’t have time to follow them too closely. 

I’ll be rooting for them heavily but I do like Kurt Warner as well.  Should be a fun game.

Great farewell message from President Bush

I didn’t watch any of the inauguration, but kudos to Rick Warren for his prayer.

Obama really cares about you, provided that you are an elite donor

Surprisingly no PETA, Global Warming, nor Code Pink protesters are seen as the Elite Obama Donors arrive in chauffeur driven stretch limousines dressed in their finest furs.

From the “What have we become?” category: Virginia Court Rules 6-Year-Old Daughter of Christian Woman Must Visit Lesbian: Threatens Use of Force If Necessary.  And this is without them ever being legally married.  But oxymoronic “same sex marriage” won’t have any impact on us, will it?

CNN has an article about Sam Adams, the Portland mayor involved in a sex scandal.  They were apparently too busy worshiping Obama to determine the political party of the mayor, as that was nowhere to be found in the article.  Surprisingly enough, he ‘s a Democrat!  Go figure.  But they wouldn’t have mentioned his party affiliation if he was Republican, either . . . right?  UPDATE: Sometime in the last 12 hours CNN added his party affiliation.  Maybe I have better sources than they do, because I figured it out right away.

The mayor was 42 when he met a 17 yr. old legislative intern.  He first claimed they never had sex and lashed out at his accusers.  Now he is admitting that they had sex, but insists that it was only after the intern turned 18.  And you can definitely trust him on that.  Seems to me that the age difference is rather creepy, but then again you can find a false pastor who insists that any technically legal relationship should never be newsworthy (oddly, he didn’t make note of the political party, either).   He even noted this:

Adams now claims that had he first come clean and admitted that he had had an affair with an 18 year old that as a gay man he wouldn’t have been believed because of old and false stereotypes about gay men preying on young boys. 

Uh, yeah, “old and false.”  Hard to believe those urban legends are still around when you have 42 year old men scoping out 17 year old boys and people lining up to rationalize it away on liberal blogs.  And no, I’m not saying all gays are pedophiles.  I’m just pointing out the multiple inanities of the media, liberals and false teachers. 

Gotta love Zo.  I like his line about the 2nd Amendment being the “In case of emergency break glass tool in case the 1st Amendment stops working on our government.”
