The Progressive Pajama Boy Era Is Over (Anti-Pussification Strikes Back!)

Obama’s approval ratings and MSNBC’s viewer ratings are in a close race to the bottom of Death Valley. It’s only a question of which set of obnoxious hipsters with a head full of bad policy ideas and no real life experience will be fired first; the Maddow crew or the White House staff.

The progressive pajama boy era is over. The asexual messenger bag toting wonk has met an ISIS Jihadist and run home to its non-traditional family. Liberalism isn’t over, but its contenders are trying to butch up their act. The second coming of Hillary is accompanied by bellicose rhetoric about Putin and Syria. Leon Panetta, her gnomish errand boy, is sneering at Obama as an egghead too busy dithering about what not to do to be able to actually do anything about ISIS.

Democrats are adjusting to a new reality of less nuance and more centrist politics. So is MSNBC.

If Obama loses the Senate, then his leftist backers also lose their death grip on the Democratic Party. And that’s why they’re panicking so badly. Progressives proved that money and media bias could let them get away with anything. But then they lost in 2010, barely hung on in 2012 and are heading for a beating in 2014. If they can’t buy the Senate now, the Democratic Party will have to correct its course.

911 dispatchers forbidden from saying ‘Ebola’ on the radio

City officials are so jittery about causing widespread Ebola panic that 911 dispatchers have been forbidden from dropping any “E”-bombs over the radios, The Post has learned.

An FDNY memo instructs all personnel to use more vague terms when discussing the deadly disease, which is threatening to become a global pandemic.

“At no point shall a dispatcher transmit over the radio any message containing the word ‘Ebola’ or related terminology,” according to the advisory, which was obtained by The Post.

Brainless Feminist Nixes Speaking Engagement To Protest Utah State University’s Pro-Gun Policies

On October 14 feminist speaker Anita Sarkeesian canceled a speaking engagement at Utah State University upon learning that state law forbids the university from banning concealed carry on campus.

The AP reports that Sarkeesian had received an “anonymous threat” on her life which was “later determined not to be credible.” Between the threat and the determination that it was not viable, Sarkeesian learned that law-abiding concealed carry permit-holders were allowed to carry guns on campus so she canceled.

Utah state representative Curt Oda (R-Clearfield) said Sarkeesian was “overreacting,” in his opinion. He said he hopes police track down whoever made the false threat, “but as for [concealed carry] permit-holders, they’re not the problem.”

Documents Confirm Fast and Furious AK-47 Used in Phoenix Gang Assault

Documents obtained through a lawsuit recently issued against the City of Phoenix by government watchdog Judicial Watch reveal a weapon from the Department of Justice’s Operation Fast and Furious was used to injure two people in a 2013 gang-style assault on an apartment complex. When the incident occurred and during investigation afterward, police worked with federal law enforcement agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Department of Homeland Security, FBI and Drug Enforcement Agency in the case, raising suspicions the assault wasn’t simply a typical, local gang shootout and prompted questions about the details of where the weapons that were used came from.

“Thanks to our lawsuit, Congress has been able to confirm what Judicial Watch already reported – that a Fast and Furious weapon was used in yet another violent crime that terrorized and injured residents of Phoenix,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “Our lawsuit against Phoenix exposed how the Obama cover-up of Fast and Furious is ongoing. Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is a mess. It has endangered the public and is engaged in an ongoing cover-up of its insanely reckless Fast and Furious gun-running operation. Judicial Watch appreciates the refreshing diligence of Senator Grassley and Congressman Issa in pursuing the truth about Fast and Furious.”

Lone Wolf Trading Company is based in Glendale, Arizona and was tapped by ATF to help with Operation Fast and Furious back in late 2009. ATF agents lied to Lone Wolf and said guns sold under surveillance at the store would never be trafficked across the southern border to Mexican cartels or used in crimes in the United States.

The world’s leading news aggregator always stays on top of the most important stories in the world. With over a billion monthly visitors to his web site at DrudgeReport.com, it’s why thousands of media organizations follow his every post. Though seemingly a private person, there is no doubt that Matt Drudge has the inside scoop on many goings on in Washington and around the country. With contacts in high places, it stands to reason that the man behind the largest news source on the planet might get a heads up about key developments every so often.

Yesterday, after having completely wiped his social media Twitter account clean recently, Matt Drudge posted his first message in months.

It’s a simple message and very much to the point, but for those following the news of failing Ebola containment protocols it’s terrifying.

Maybe Matt Drudge has gotten word of something that we’re not yet aware of just yet.

Or, perhaps, like any concerned citizen watching the Centers for Disease control botch the handling of Ebola, he sees the writing on the wall. The virus, as has been the case in Africa, will continue to spread.

Insiders Blame Buffoon Karl Rove for Covering Up Iraq’s Real WMD

There’s one man, some Republicans say, who kept the public from learning about the chemical shells littered around the Iraqi battlefield. He was Bush’s most important political adviser.
Starting in 2004, some members of the George W. Bush administration and Republican lawmakers began to find evidence of discarded chemical weapons in Iraq. But when the information was brought up with the White House, senior adviser Karl Rove told them to ‘let these sleeping dogs lie.’

The issue of Iraq’s WMD remnant was suddenly thrust back into the fore this week, with a blockbuster New York Times report accusing the Bush administration of covering up American troops’ chemically-induced wounds.

To people familiar with the issue, both inside that administration and without, the blame for the cover up falls on one particular set of shoulders: Rove’s.

From the perspective of Rick Santorum, a Republican senator from Pennsylvania who lost his seat in 2006, some of the weapons of mass destruction President Bush promised would be in Iraq before the 2003 invasion of the country began turning up as early as 2004.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, former Senator Rick Santorum said he and his staff began receiving photographs of discarded Sarin and Mustard shells from U.S. soldiers in 2004. Two years later, when he was up for re-election, Santorum even went public with some of this information in a press conference disclosing a Pentagon report that found 500 chemical weapons shells had been found in Iraq.

Biden’s Son Hunter Discharged From Navy Reserve After Failing Cocaine Test

Hunter Biden, right, attends a basketball game with his father, Vice President Joe Biden, center, and President Barack Obama in Washington, D.C., in 2010.

Vice President Joe Biden ’s son Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserve this year after testing positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the matter.

Hunter Biden, a lawyer by training who is now a managing partner at an investment company, had been commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve, a part-time position. But after failing a drug test last year, his brief military career ended.

Mr. Biden, 44 years old, decided to pursue military service relatively late, beginning the direct-commission process to become a public-affairs officer in the Navy Reserve in 2012. Because of his age—43 when he was to be commissioned—he needed a waiver to join the Navy. He received a second Navy waiver because of a drug-related incident when he was a young man, according to people familiar with the matter. Military officials say such drug waivers aren’t uncommon.

Mr. Biden was commissioned as an ensign on May 7, 2013, and assigned to Navy Public Affairs Support Element East in Norfolk, Va., a reserve unit, according to the Navy. In June 2013, after reporting to his unit in Norfolk, he was given a drug test, which turned up positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the situation. Mr. Biden was discharged in February, the Navy said.

Strange Bedfellows Make Strange Politics: Understanding the Rachel Noerdlinger Affair

Tags: No Tags

Published on: October 16, 2014

Once you tug at the loose ends of the Rachel Noerdlinger story, the whole administration of New York mayor Bill de Blasio seems to unravel in your hands.

For the last few days, the tabloids have been all over Noerdlinger, 43, chief of staff to de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, because of the disclosure by DNAinfo.com that her live-in boyfriend, Hassaun McFarlan, 36, is a cop-hating criminal. At 15, after A Better Chance—a charity that sends inner-city black kids to good suburban schools—had paid for McFarlan to attend a Connecticut school for two years, he returned to the Harlem housing project where his single mother lived and promptly shot an 18-year-old neighbor to death over a down jacket. Three years after pleading guilty to manslaughter (around the time his drug-dealer father died of AIDS) and serving six years in prison, McFarlan landed in jail again for interstate drug dealing. He pled guilty and got out of prison in Massachusetts in 2007. A series of traffic arrests began in 2009—the year his mother committed suicide—and ended just after de Blasio was elected mayor, when McFarlan, driving girlfriend Noerdlinger’s Mercedes, refused to stop for a cop guiding traffic around an accident but instead sped up so aggressively that the cop had to jump out of his path. Charged with disorderly conduct, he pled guilty this March. Little wonder, as McFarlan wrote on Facebook, that “I cant come outside without the pigs fucking with me in the hood out the hood im a magnet to police fucking with me.” The solution, according to a tee-shirt he wears, is to end the police tactic of stop-and-frisk.

None of this would matter publicly if McFarlan’s girlfriend’s boss, the mayor’s wife, did not play so central a role in New York City governance. But she does. “As I’ve said probably a thousand times,” de Blasio declared of McCray, “she’s my most important adviser and the person I’m closest to in the world—and the person I listen to the most.” That’s not hyperbole—the mayor listed his wife alongside himself on his campaign’s organization chart, and New York Magazine reports that since the inauguration, people describe them as “virtual co-mayors.” “Understand Chirlane and you’ll understand me,” de Blasio once said. “We do everything as a couple—we think as a couple.” McCray has approved and often interviewed all important hires in her husband’s administration, from commissioners and deputy mayors on down, and she has ensured that women and minorities are heavily represented in their ranks. In addition, she runs the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, controlling a $50 million-plus pot of public and private money to set up pilot programs for everything from youth employment to immigrant assistance, as she sees fit.

New York Town Demands Your Facebook Password During Handgun Application Process

The photo above shows an application for a pistol permit as used by the Watervliet, New York police department. It comes to us from “Mazz,” a member of the nyfirearms.com forum [registration required]. As you can see the app asks applicants for their “Facebook & Password.” Considering the document’s homemade look and the absurdity of the request, I called the Watervliet PD for confirmation and clarification. I got Chief Ron Boisvert . . .

The Chief told TTAG that the sheet shouldn’t have been in the application packet – and won’t be in future. “It’s for internal use only,” he said.

Yes, well, the Chief said he uses the form to gather the applicant’s Facebook deets during a face-to-face interview. Why make note of the password? “We don’t,” he insisted. “We ask the applicant to log on to Facebook in front of us.” So the Chief scrolls through the applicant’s Facebook page searching for . . . ?

Cops Secretly Using Private Foundations To Obtain Controversial Surveillance Technology

Tags: No Tags

Published on: October 16, 2014

The less the public knows about law enforcement surveillance technology, the better. That’s the thought process governing the purchase and deployment of technology like Stingray devices and automatic license plate readers. In the case of the former, even the nation’s top cops (the FBI) actively discourage talking about the cell tower spoofers through the use of restrictive non-disclosure agreements.

Being public entities, it’s sometimes hard to keep the public and local law enforcement’s new tools and toys separated. FOIA requests and a whole lot of persistence have managed to uncover details about surveillance tech, but what’s turned over is often heavily-redacted or several months out of date. The purchasing process should run through local governing bodies, but many of those are only too happy to defer to law enforcement and rubber-stamp purchases sight unseen or keep discussions of purchases off the public records.

If the normal routes — as deferential as they are — seem to be a bit too “leaky,” many law enforcement agencies have a third option available to keep the public in the dark about their technology acquisitions: private funding.

Across the nation, private foundations are increasingly being tapped to provide police with technology and weaponry that — were it purchased with public money — would come under far closer scrutiny.

In Los Angeles, foundation money has been used to buy hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of license plate readers, which were the subject of a civil-rights lawsuit filed against the region’s law enforcement agencies by the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. (A judge rejected the groups’ claims earlier this year.)

Private funds also have been used to upgrade “Stingray” devices, which have triggered debate in numerous jurisdictions because they vacuum up records of cellphone metadata, calls, text messages and data transfers over a half-mile radius.

These private foundations have been useful in the past, supplying cops with needed equipment like bulletproof vests and office equipment during times of budget shortfalls. Unfortunately, they’ve now stretched far beyond funding to fill in budgetary gaps to become the checkbook of choice when purchasing controversial surveillance technology.

Colorado Held Hostage: Hickenlooper (D) Says He ‘Could’ Grant Clemency To Mass Shooter If Not Re-Elected

Published on: October 13, 2014

If Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (D) is not re-elected in November, he says he “could” respond to the loss by commuting the death sentence of mass shooter Nathan Dunlap.

Dunlap is the infamous killer who shot 5 and killed 4 at an Aurora Chuck E. Cheese in 1993. He was angered over being fired, and Denver Magazine 5280 reports that Dunlap was at his girlfriend’s apartment having sex with her when the police tracked him down “only…a few hours” after the shootings.

Dunlap was sentenced to death but when the date for his execution came up in 2013, Hickenlooper granted a “temporary reprieve.” The National Journal reported that he chose this action as a way to pass the buck on taking a firm stand on the death penalty. Families of the victims gunned down by Dunlap were heartbroken and outraged.

The Journal also pointed out that Hickenlooper has since indicated he could further his action — changing it to full clemency — should Coloradans elect Republican Bob Beauprez instead of him in November.

Bronx in uproar after de Blasio skips Columbus Day parade

Mayor de Blasio skipped a Columbus Day parade in The Bronx at his own peril Sunday, as residents chided him for showing off his ethnic pride only when it suits his political ends — and not marching this year to hide from the recent controversy over one of his top aides.

“He’s Italian when he feels like it! This is the second largest Columbus parade in the city!” said parade-goer Joe Carfora of Hizzoner’s failure to attend the celebration along Morris Park Avenue in the northeastern part of The Bronx.

“When Bloomberg was mayor, he would show up every year. De Blasio’s his last name!”

Morris Park, which boasts one of the city’s highest concentrations of Italian-Americans, is one of the few neighborhoods de Blasio lost in last year’s election, with GOP contender Joe Lhota drubbing him by more than 40 percent in some of its election districts.

Kroger attack suspect was shouting ‘point ‘em, out knock ‘em out,’ witness says

Some of the teens who were involved a mob-style attack in the parking lot of an east Memphis Kroger last month were shouting “point ‘em out, knock ‘em out,” as they charged the store, according to a witness who testified in court Monday.

Dominik Mosby, 17, told a General Sessions judge the shouting began after the group of about 50 kids left Cici’s Pizza and poured into the parking lot at Poplar Plaza, where it looked like a fight was going to break out among them.

“Then someone yelled ‘point ‘em out, knock ‘em out,’” Mosby said. “They ran to Kroger.”

Mosby said he was in the back of the crowd, looking on as 19-year old Raheem Richardson began hitting and stomping on a Kroger employee who was outside gathering shopping carts.

Richardson was among those trying to incite a round of the knockout game, according to Mosby, and he also participated in the attack.
