A black Democratic state representative named Bill Patmon has done the state of Ohio proud by finally saying what I’ve been thinking for weeks now: “You hear a lot of demonstrations across the country now about ‘Black Lives Matter.’ Well, they skipped one place, they should be in front of Planned Parenthood. They skipped one place, not just the police department, stand in front of Planned Parenthood. Black lives matter. American lives matter.”
Rep. Patmon is acting like an adult, not an adolescent, a statesman, not a politician, and I find that as refreshing as a long drink of water from a cold spring in high summer.
UPDATE: Here is a longer take from Michael Potemra, who does a fine job of explaining why this is an extraordinary event.
…this highly entertaining scene takes place in court.
Not even air-gapped computers are safe from hackers, as researchers in Israel have just proven by using a simple cell phone. That means computers used in our most sensitive installations are at risk, and our government is doing a big fat nothing about it.
Moral: If you have electronics, they can be hacked!
A town in Italy has had an exorcism performed by a priest flying above it in a helicopter. That has to be a first. The ritual may well drive out the demons, but it may not stop the moral rot which has caused the local churches to be targeted. I hope it works.
Once again I must point out that His Oneness, Sec. Moniz and Sec. Kerry could not negotiate their way out of a wet paper bag with instructions printed on the inside. They did not negotiate with Iran — they surrendered, abjectly, embarrassingly.
The aforementioned paragraph basically says Iran can say one of the parties isn’t behaving properly, wait 35 days, claim to be unsatisfied, then terminate the agreement. It is a beautiful exit strategy. The translation is: The stupid USA is paying us to acquire nuclear tactical weapons and conventional weapons which we will use to destroy Israel, then the USA, then take over the world.
I’ll get to some of the other goodies contained in that treasonous document, but at least you know know when the final clock begins ticking.
And Howie Carr is absolutely thrilled that Boston’s overlords will not be able to fleece taxpayers yet again.
I can not imagine why any city would want to host the modern Olympics with all the congestion and security requirements.
The Obama Administration has announced that inspectors general will have to get permission from their agency heads to gain access to grand jury, wiretap and fair credit information. In other words, His Oneness is limiting the ability of the IGs to do their jobs.
The IGs were set up to be independent from the rest of government, including the White House and the Department of Justice. Without independence, an inspector general becomes just another government employee, subject to bureaucratic pressures.
