Democrats legalize child prostitution

From California
The State That Voted For Hillary in a Landslide

(World Net Daily)  -  Beginning on Jan. 1, child prostitution will be legal in the streets of California.

In fact, police officers in the state will be banned from arresting any person under the age of 18 for soliciting or loitering with intent, according to Senate Bill 1322. California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill on Sept. 26, and it will go into effect Sunday.

Advocates of the law say it will help child victims of sex trafficking get treatment rather than sending them to juvenile hall and tagging them with a rap sheet for prostitution.

State Sen. Holly J. Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, who introduced the bill, said, “The law is supposed to protect vulnerable children from adult abuse, yet we brand kids enmeshed in sex-for-pay with a scarlet ‘P’ and leave them subject to shame and prosecution. This is our opportunity to do what we say is right in cases of sex trafficking: stop the exploiters and help the exploited.”
But Travis Allen, a Republican lawmaker representing the 72nd Assembly District in the California Legislature, warned of the fallout from what he called a “terribly destructive legislation [that] was written and passed by the progressive Democrats who control California’s state government.”
“[T]eenage girls (and boys) in California will soon be free to have sex in exchange for money without fear of arrest or prosecution,” Allen wrote in a column published by the Washington Examiner.
Allen acknowledged that Democrats sincerely believe the law will help child sex victims, but he issued a dire warning about the “immoral” consequences of decriminalizing child prostitution.
Paul Durenberger, an assistant chief district attorney in Sacramento County who oversees human trafficking cases, told the Sacramento Bee in February that the legislation is similar to “bills that a trafficker would want to write to protect themselves.”
Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, a respected leader on the issue of human trafficking, said the law “just opens up the door for traffickers to use these kids to commit crimes and exploit them even worse.”

Ex-CIA agent: "No evidence of Russian hack"

100% Pure Government Bullshit

  • Let's see here. The CIA that runs guns to Islamist terrorists and the FBI that back in July cleared Hillary of charges now wants us to believe Russia hacked our elections.
  • The bullshit is piled on so thick that only the corrupt Corporate Media Machine could report the Russian hacking story with a straight face.

(The Daily Sheeple)  -  On Thursday, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security released a joint analysis report addressing persistent allegations that the Russian government hacked the U.S. election.
Though, as the White House fact sheet asserts, the report largely consists of tips to improve cyber security and prevent future attacks, it also appears to cite evidence Russian Intelligence Services (RIS) actively attempted to hack into U.S. systems, a campaign the government has named “GRIZZLY STEPPE.”

But as the media runs with the story and many outlets accept the 13-page report as fact, veterans of the intelligence community have pointed out flaws with the FBI-DHS analysis.
According to Philip Giraldi, a former CIA agent, the report fails to prove Russia is behind the hack. In a recent Facebook post, he asserted that “apart from assertions of Russian activity connected to an unnamed political party, [the report] provides absolutely no evidence that the alleged intrusions into the DNC servers were anything beyond normal intelligence agency probing for vulnerabilities.”
“In fact,” he adds, “it doesn’t even provide the evidence for that.”
Further, he argues:
There is no evidence of particular mal-intent that can be traced back to the Russian government, much less to Vladimir Putin. Nine of the thirteen pages of the report deal with advice on how to keep your system from being hacked.
Robert M. Lee, a former U.S. Air Force Cyber Warfare Operations Officer and founder and CEO of cyber security firm Dragos, explains the report is confusing because it states early on that its intention is to aid “defenders” of the U.S. However, the report makes a point of declaring RIS guilty, veering away from the stated public service goals.

Insane Obama lashes out at Israel and Russia

The Madman's Days are Numbered

  • As political power drains away from his body we see the loon warmonger Obama lashing out at everyone while trying to start a conflict with Russia. He can't leave office soon enough.

(Reuters)  -  President Barack Obama on Thursday ordered the expulsion of 35 Russian suspected spies and imposed sanctions on two Russian intelligence agencies over their involvement in hacking U.S. political groups in the 2016 presidential election.

"All Americans should be alarmed by Russia’s actions," he said.

" . . . diplomats reported that Russian intruders had broken into their homes late at night, only to rearrange the furniture or turn on all the lights and televisions, and then leave. One diplomat reported that an intruder had defecated on his living room carpet," reports Business Insider.

Oh The Horror

This enters the Bizarro World arena making my Bullshit Detector go on overload all this last week.

Our Overlords tell us about the "evil" Russians hacking our elections. Naturally no proof is ever offered (its top secret you know) nor are we told what the Russians hacked (its top secret you know).

As an added bonus we see moron Republicans like Paul Ryan, McCain and Graham jumping on the bullshit anti-Russia bandwagon as a way to get at Trump.

Now a politically scrubbed report on the "hack" is released.  Simply I would not believe one damn word the corrupt FBI, CIA or NSA told me.

A madman is still in charge

San Francisco extravaganza: “The Fashion of Islam”

Liberalism is a Mental Disorder

  • Only insane Leftist Loons would do a fashion show "celebration" of the oppression of women by Muslim culture.

(Jihad Watch)  -  The glamorization of oppression. “There are probably people who don’t even think there is fashion in Islam. But if you look at Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Beirut, the fashion is really vibrant, and it can speak to larger political and social developments, cultural understanding and misunderstandings.”

I’ve seen Muslim women in niqabs buying expensive high fashion clothes in high-end shops on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles. But they didn’t dare wear them out in public, even in Los Angeles. Will “The Fashion of Islam” discuss how “vibrant” the fashion world is in Saudi Arabia, where a woman was just arrested for venturing out without her head covered? Will “The Fashion of Islam” discuss the “vibrant” fashion of Aqsa Parvez, whose Muslim father choked her to death with her hijab after she refused to wear it? Or Aqsa and Amina Muse Ali, a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn’t wearing a hijab? Or the 40 women who were murdered in Iraq in 2007 for not wearing the hijab . . . .

Who is standing in solidarity with them and the many, many other Muslim women who have been brutalized, threatened, or even killed for not wearing the hijab or niqab? When is their fashion extravaganza?

“‘The Fashion of Islam’ to Arrive at de Young in 2018,” by Jori Finkel, New York Times, December 26, 2016:
SAN FRANCISCO — The de Young Museum here has drawn big crowds before with shows on Oscar de la Renta, Jean Paul Gaultier and Yves Saint Laurent. But for its next big fashion extravaganza, the museum is entering new territory — and moving from gowns to hijabs, the head scarves worn by many Muslim women. The museum’s new director, Max Hollein, has scheduled “The Fashion of Islam,” the first major show developed since his arrival, for the fall of 2018.
In Australia, the traveling show “Faith, Fashion, Fusion” recently explored the market for “modest fashion.” Otherwise, few museums have touched the topic.
“There are probably people who don’t even think there is fashion in Islam,” Mr. Hollein said. “But if you look at Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Beirut, the fashion is really vibrant, and it can speak to larger political and social developments, cultural understanding and misunderstandings.”
Mr. Hollein’s idea is to approach the subject from different perspectives, examining how Islamic styles are shaped by seemingly polar opposites: religious beliefs, which seek to avoid any appearance of extravagance and arrogance, or calling attention to oneself, and global fashion trends.
One part of the show will look at interpretations of hijabs by Islamic and European designers, from Iman Aldebe and Hussein Chalayan to Dolce & Gabbana. Another will display Islamic streetwear and sportswear, addressing the burkini ban controversies that have plagued the beaches of France. Another section is expected to be more historical and show examples of traditional Muslim dress….

Huckabee: Defund U.N. give money to Vets

It should have been 
Vice President Huckabee
  • Huckabee would have been my choice. The phony GOP spends trillions to level nations while leaving Vets to be homeless or go without medical care.

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) was asked about U.S. federal funding for the United Nations, which has come under fire by many domestically for a Security Council resolution condemning the nation of Israel for building settlements in disputed territories.
Huckabee suggested the monies allocated from the United States for the United Nations should be taken away and given to veterans that served under the U.S. flag reports Breitbart.
Partial transcript as follows:
ERIC BOLLING: Mike, before we let you go about a minute or. The U.N., we fund — the United States funds U.N. extensively — the regular budget we account for about 22 percent. That is about $600 million in 2016. But there is a peace keeping budget, we have been talking about almost $2.5 billion as well. And further a voluntary contributions, they can be $7 or $8 billion as the U.S. funds the U.N. initiatives. Should we cut that back?
MIKE HUCKABEE: We should eliminate it, and I will tell you something, we ought to take that money that’s going to the U.N. and make it available to veterans who have served under the U.S. flag and make sure they’ll get the benefits they need. We are getting zero benefits. We are getting embarrassed by the actions of the U.N. That’s money that ought to be spent on American servicemen and service women and I hope Donald Trump makes it one of the first acts of his presidency.

'God should kill Trump' Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen:
'God should send his lightening down on Trump"

(Washington Times)  -  Actor Charlie Sheen is under fire for a tweet wishing death upon President-elect Donald Trump.
His tweet, which read, “Dear God; Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Trump next, please!” — punctuated with a middle finger emoji — was posted just hours after it was announced that actress Debbie Reynolds had passed away, just one day after the death of her daughter, actress Carrie Fisher.

The backlash was swift, with many people accusing Mr. Sheen of politicizing a tragedy for a cheap joke.
“No matter how bad life gets, I never actively root for someone to die. That is a truly evil soul,” one Twitter user responded.

Scarlett Johansson - #1 actress in the world

She is hot in more ways than one

  • I still have that candle-lit shrine in the back bedroom dedicated to Jennifer Lawrence. But I am considering adding Scarlett by Jen's side.

(Yahoo News)  -  Remind us again why Black Widow doesn’t have her own Marvel-ous solo adventure yet? Largely thanks to her key role in this summer’s blockbuster hit, Captain America: Civil War, the folks at Forbes have crowned Scarlett Johansson as 2016’s top-grossing actor

Reprising her role as super-agile Avenger, Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. the Black Widow, Johansson reluctantly took Team Iron Man’s side in the team’s civil war, which was gut-wrenching within the Marvel cinematic universe, but great for Marvel Studios’ bottom line, as the film grossed more than $1.15 billion around the world.

That Giant Man-sized number — coupled with a $63 million worldwide gross for Johansson’s other 2016 ensemble spectacle, Hail Caesar! — was enough to bump the actress’s total box office tally to $1.2 billion. 

Not for nothing, but those figures would be even larger if Forbes’ guidelines had not excluded Johansson’s voice-only performances as chatty snake Kaa in Jon Favreau‘s wildly successful The Jungle Book (almost $1 billion worldwide) and a porcupine punk rocker in Universal’s Christmas cartoon hit, Sing (more than $75 million from its long holiday weekend debut in the U.S.).

In powering her way to the top of the Forbes‘ list, Johansson left her fellow Marvel superheroes eating her dust, including the ostensible star of Civil WarChris “Captain America” Evans, who tied for second place with his onscreen nemesis, Robert “Iron Man” Downey Jr. 

Breakout Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie claimed fourth place, which suggests that Warner Bros. was wise to get into the Harley Quinn business with the announced spin-off, Gotham City Sirens. And, like Black Widow, Harley ran circles around the DC Universe’s male heroes, with Batman v. Superman co-stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill having to settle for sixth and seventh place, respectively. 

So basically, this Forbes list is telling us that a Black Widow/Harley Quinn team-up adventure would make all the money. Ball’s in your court, Hollywood.

Wizard beheaded by ISIS thugs

(The Sun)  -  THIS is the shocking moment an elderly man is sentenced to death and executed by ISIS – for being a ‘wizard’.
In the terror group’s latest sick atrocity – photographed for their propaganda – a pale, ginger fanatic can be seen reading out trumped up charges.
Reading from a sheet of paper, the pasty militant accuses the pensioner of being a “sorcerer” and a “practitioner of magic”, the Daily Mail reports.
Standing in front of a mob of masked men, he condemns the old man to a brutal death.

A second photo shows the blindfolded prisoner bent over a chopping block with two other militants holding him down, while a third wields a blade high over his head.
The ginger commander – one of the only fighters not masked – can be seen watching on in the background.
As is so often the case with atrocities carried out by ISIS, the killing is done in front of a crowd in the local town square.
A third photo, too gruesome to publish, shows the victim’s decapitated body with his head on his torso.
According to Terror Monitor, the bloody spectacle occurred in the Damascus suburb of Yarmouk in Syria.
It is believed to have been carried out by the ISIS-affiliated Khalid ibn Al-Walid Army.
The group was formed when several radical groups merged in May and now controls a strip of territory south of the Syrian capital.
The group is named after Khalid ibn al-Walid, who led the Muslim armies in the Battle of Yarmouk in the year 636, inflicting a heavy defeat on the Christian army.

Islamists Teach Child Soldiers to Rape

Making Jihad One Rape at a Time

(Breitbart)  -  Islamist militants from the Boko Haram terror group are instructing their teenage recruits how to sexually assault women as part of their training, both as a means of terror and an incentive for the young militants.

As part of their formation program, the Nigeria-based Jihadi leaders rape women and young girls captured during raids in front of the boys as a visual lesson in how to subdue a struggling victim during sexual assault, according to reports.

One 15-year-old boy known only as Ahmed said that the girls “scream and cry for help,” but the militants don’t care. “Sometimes they’ll be slapped and threatened with guns if they didn’t cooperate,” he said.

According to Ahmed, the jihadists accompany their demonstrations with specific instructions on how to carry out a rape.

“They tell us to remember to hold the girl tight on both hands, pinned to the floor,” he said. “They said we shouldn’t let a woman overpower us.”

The young soldier said that before one attack, his superiors told the militants to capture as many women as they could, promising that they would be allowed to “have fun” when they returned to their base.

“At first I didn’t understand what they meant by ‘you are going to have fun’ and nobody thought to explain,” said Ahmed. This was before his training in sexual assault.

According to Ahmed, encouraging young militants to have sex with captives is a relatively new tactic, since previously, the leaders forbade teenage soldiers from doing so, saying that women belonged to men and not boys.

The change in policy reportedly reflects a need to incentivize younger soldiers, especially now that a significant number of senior fighters have been killed off by the Nigerian military.

Rape Creates New Jihadis
(Daily Post)  -  Aisha said, “They show you a gun, and then whatever they say you have to follow their command. He would lock me up during the day and rape me at night.
“He would go on operations and kill people, and then come home and force me to be with him,” she added.
Aisha, reports revealed, was rescued by the Cameroon military, but the worst of her ordeal was finding out she was impregnated by her rapist.
“I am not enjoying that I have a baby from a Boko Haram man,” she lamented.

Leftists hound student supporting Trump

Thought Crime
Fascism from the Left wants to silence 
all dissenting opinions

(Philly.com)  -  Andi Moritz couldn't get the comments out of her head. A Facebook post the Bryn Mawr College freshman made on the school's ride-share page earlier that September day had drawn harsh backlash from dozens of students, most of whom she didn't know.

She was looking for someone to share a ride to a campaign event for Donald Trump.

"Nobody has the right to an opinion of bigotry. 0 tolerance for fascists!"
You want to go campaign for a man who has systematically oppressed entire ethnic/racial groups not to mention the LGBTQIA+ community and many others."
"Why y'all doing this free labor for white supremacists tho." Moritz called the college's suicide hotline.
Bryn Mawr College freshman Andi Moritz, 18, posted a request for a ride to a Trump
rally on a college Facebook site. Moritz was ostracized by her classmates through a
series of angry comments, calling her ignorant and labeling her a racist.
Two days later, she dropped out.

"I just needed to talk to someone," said Moritz, 18, of Hershey. "I was very sad. I wanted out of that college."

Two days later she dropped out.

Moritz - whose story was first reported in a blog by students in a Bryn Mawr journalism class - said she had struggled with mild depression and anxiety in high school and had been in counseling before the incident.

At Bryn Mawr, she'd felt politically isolated. But, she said, it was that night's mean-spirited posts that finally led her to leave.

Being a young Republican and Trump supporter on a largely liberal college campus can be a rough road.

"People did say things to us that you would call insulting," said Sean Egan, 20, president of the University of Pennsylvania College Republicans. "If you tried to talk about something substantive [with liberal students], it would turn into 'He's a racist.' "

Carrie Fisher 1956 - 2016

A Star Blinks Out

By Gary;

I am not sure I can add anything worthwhile to the assorted RIPs and bios being pumped out by the ton.

Perhaps the one meaningful observation I can bring to the table is this:  Princes Leia was the star, not Carrie Fisher.

Movies draw us into fantasy wonderlands. We want to escape our drab lives and be in that alternate world of Oz or in the room with Don Corleone.

In 2 and 1/4 movies Princess Leia was our escape into that galaxy far, far away.  I say 1/4 film because after the Slave Girl Leia portion the third Star Wars film devolved into a steaming pile of Ewok crap.

Star Wars itself was the star. Carrie Fisher was just along for the ride. An actress in the right place at the right time. Her other films were enormously forgettable. A true movie star does hit after hit in many different types of films.

This is not to downgrade Fisher. It is what it is. Hollywood is filled with "stars" who are not.

At an early age Fisher was lucky enough to grasp the the ring of super-stardom. Her character became a legend soaring high above almost everyone. Perhaps knowing she would never again come even remotely close to the Legend of Princess Leia she went down the road of drug abuse.

Whatever her failings as a person she brought joy to the silver screen to generations and generations.

So tonight I fill my glass with gin and make a toast. "To Leia. Thanks for the memories. May the force be with you."
