Michelle Obama Talks About Race and Success, and Makes It Personal:

She looked around and saw herself three decades ago, young and uncertain, from a part of town where success is a struggle, not a birthright. She knew what they had been through, what it was like to take the long way home to avoid gangs, what it was like when the family strained to make ends meet.

Three decades ago Michelle Obama was exploiting her race to achieve a success her talent could not provide, not much different than what she is doing now. What a disgrace the struggle of so many generations of African Americans has been so cheapened that it is now compared to the travails of a privileged princess whom thirty years ago was at Princeton (where her brother had also gone), producing nothing more than a self congratulatory nod to how hard her charmed life was.

Obama Supporters Sign Petition to Nuke Russia. Do these Obama supporters not understand what the words “preemptive nuclear strike against Russia” mean or are they willing to support Lord Barry in even that madness? Hard to say.

It Begins! Montana Man Being Prosecuted for ‘Hate Speech’ and Holocaust Denial: In an effort to stop a man from talking like a Nazi the Flathead County prosecutor’s office has taken on the manners of one. This is chilling indeed.

Elon Musk Defends His Companies’ Subsidies: Elon Musk has invested billions in developing technologies that there may or may not be an actual demand for. If there is a demand for it he will be sure to reap the benefits. If there is not a demand for it he will be sure to pass the cost onto us.

‘Tyranny is in America’: Anti-Muslim armed rally organizer says he’s headed into hiding after getting death threats. For all their talk of opposing “hate” the proglodytes seem to be missing a fine opportunity to denounce all the hate involved in threatening to kill someone for having engaged in some free expression.

Rabbi Jonah Pesner on CNN: Taking a stand against hate speech We hope the day never comes when Reactionary Islam has the power to show Rabbi Pesner just how wrong he is about them. But should that day ever arrive he won’t get an ‘I told you so’ from those he is insulting now. He will get their undying devotion to the preservation of his life, culture and people.

Bernie Sanders: Don’t Need 23 Choices of Deodorant, 18 Choices of Sneakers When Kids Are Going Hungry. Socialists don’t like choice. Mostly because, if choices are not taken away, the only people that are going to opt into their system are the ones looking to exploit those who will have already absented themselves from it. And having those kind of options makes it very difficult for Bernie Sanders to take any more control of our lives or for his economic policies to kill another hundred million people.

Jeb Bush Confronted By College Student: ‘Your Brother Created ISIS’. We find this students position to be untenable. There is absolutely no evidence that Barbara Bush was anywhere near Kenya at the time of Barack Obama’s conception.

By George: ABC’s Clinton Defender-in-Chief. While the Clinton’s cannot be counted to stand up for the little guy it is clear this little guy can be counted on to stand up for them. At least, given how the top of his head is nearly level with the guy sitting across from him, we assume Stephanopoulas is standing.

Chris Matthews: Pamela Geller CAUSED Texas shooting by setting a TRAP for Muslims. Sorry Mr. Matthews but having admitted to getting man tingles down your leg has already put you on their list. No amount of opposition to free speech is going to help you now.

ACLU: ‘Black Spring Has Begun’ Apparently the civil liberty to blow up your neighbor’s car, burn down your neighbor’s business and break your neighbor’s bones is more equal than the civil liberty of not having your home invaded for expressing an opinion that offends DA John Chisholm’s wife. #WisconsinSpring!

The president of the Baltimore City Council apologized for calling rioters “thugs” at a press conference Tuesday, calling those responsible for the violence “misdirected” youths.

No, he was right the first time.
