Someone page Rosie O’Donnell: Gun used by Grandfather to Save 19 y/o granddaughter from rape [Darleen Click]
In spite of being wounded, granddad was able to kill one of the three armed thugs that broke into his home
A grandfather shot back and is believed to have killed a suspect in a home-invasion and attempted rape of his teen granddaughter on Monday night, Robeson County Sheriff’s officials said.
The grandfather was also shot – but he also managed to shoot the 2 other suspects in the home-invasion and attempted rape, said Maj. Anthony Thompson with the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident started around 10 pm at a house on Yedda Road in Lumberton on Monday night when someone knocked on the home of the grandfather, his wife and their 19-year-old granddaughter, according to the sheriff’s office.
Two of three men – all wearing black clothes, ski masks and gloves — stormed into the house and demanded money, officials said.
The grandfather and his wife ended up in the back of the house and were directed at gunpoint to open a safe. The three men were all armed and tried to rape the teen girl, officials said.
The 67-year-old grandfather managed to grab a gun and shot all three of the suspects. The suspects fired back and the grandfather was hit several times, deputies said.
After that, all three wounded suspects fled in the grandfather’s gold Cadillac.
Later, the sheriff’s office was contacted when 2 men with gunshot wounds showed up at McLeod Hospital in Dillon.
Deputies received information that took them to Singletary Church Road near Lumberton where they found Jamie Lee Faison, age 20, dead inside the stolen Cadillac. He died from gunshot wounds, deputies said.
Granddad had to go into emergency surgery and was, at last report, recovering in ICU.
In the further #WarOnBiology, Progressive hierarchy puts so-called Transgender “rights” above “cis” people rights.
Tamara Lusardi, a transgender who transitioned from male to female, has won his case against the Department of the Army for discrimination and humiliation, based on a report from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC).
In 2010, Lusardi was working for the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center as a civilian employee, and announced that he was now officially beginning his transition from male to female. Lusardi changed his name and began dressing as a woman, at which point management held a meeting to accommodate Tamara in the workforce. Management supported Lusardi and repeatedly stated that they intended to treat him fairly and accommodate in any way possible, yet emphasized that they also wanted to ensure a safe workplace for everyone.
In light of these concerns, Lusardi voluntarily agreed to use the executive restroom, given that he had not undergone gender transition surgery and several female employees had expressed serious concern about sharing a restroom with a man presenting as a woman.
However, Lusardi didn’t stick to the agreement, using the female restroom on three separate occasions between January and March 2011. After females again reported discomfort, Lusardi was informed that he should continue to use the executive restroom as agreed, but he protested. But discomfort is relevant, according to the OSC, an office which holds that regardless of Lusadi’s initial agreement, he should be able to change his mind and use the female restroom whenever he sees fit. Employee preferences are irrelevant to the legality of the issue and must be changed through training.
Yes, you h8y cis-womyns with your so-called uncomfortableness! Your vagina privilege will not stand! You will be educated and you will be made to care!

Democrat Martha Robertson has had so many self-inflicted troubles in her campaign against incumbent Republican Tom Reed in NY-23, it’s hard to catalog them all.
Robertson has been written off by the DCCC and every major nonpartison national analyst, a long comedown from the heady days when she was considered a prime “Red to Blue” prospect to flip a Republican seat.
When a candidate loses credibility, it’s hard to regain.
At the candidate debate tonight, that lost credibility was evidenced when Robertson accused Reed of being part of the War Against Women. She actually used the phrase “you’re part of the War against Women.”
The crowd laughed so hard, Robertson had to ask for more time.
Oh yes, Islam is the Religion of Peace …
Three-month-old Chaya Zissel Braun, the baby girl killed today in Jerusalem during a vehicular terrorist attack, was an American citizen, a US official confirmed to The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday night.
The girl was thrown from her stroller as a car swerved into the Ammunition Hill light rail station, injuring seven others.
State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf has “urged restraint” and calm from both sides after the attack.
Uh, Marie? Fuck you.
The suspected perpetrator has alleged ties to Hamas, Israeli officials say.
“This is a natural response to the crimes of the occupation and invasion of our land by the Jews,” Hamas spokesman Hossam Badran said in response to the attack.
Hossam Badran and any member of Hamas and all the Arab interlopers who believe in a Judenrein Middle East while they pretend a history that never existed, should be quickly eliminated from this earth.
Nah. Not by half.
International Brotherhood Workers Union: If we can’t have those jobs, we’ll make sure no one gets those jobs [Darleen Click]
Union thuggery against any opposition — destroying property and smashing heads — is so well known as to become a stereotype.
So it comes no surprise that an organization interested only in power and never about the welfare of individual workers, would also use a front-group to engage in lawfare and drive a business out of California.
The California city of Palmdale was ready to roll out the red carpet this summer when a Japanese company agreed to build a $60 million factory on a city-owned, vacant parcel on the southwest side of town — but now the company is taking its project out of state and critics say union greed is to blame.
As many as 300 people were slated to work at the 400,000-square-foot plant, painting and wiring light rail cars under a huge contract with the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority. It was a coup for Palmdale Mayor Jim Ledford, and a plan that seemed to suit Kinkisharyo International, which last year moved its U.S. headquarters from Boston to El Segundo, Calif.
“I believe this is just the beginning of a manufacturing renaissance here in the Antelope Valley,” crowed Ledford in June.
“We’ve been waiting for this day for a long time,” added Palmdale Economic Development Director Dave Walter. “So many people and organizations played huge roles in making this a reality.”
But a newly formed environmental group — which critics say is a front for a local union — had other ideas.
The “Antelope Valley Residents for Responsible Development,” a group backed by the International Brotherhood Workers Union Local 11, produced a 588-page appeal claiming that construction of the proposed factory would violate state environmental laws, by, among other things, kicking up spores. What the union really wanted, according to Kinkisharyo officials, was clearance to organize the plant without any interference from the company. When Kinkisharyo officials balked, the project suddenly became a potential environmental hazard. [...]
Kinkisharyo, the El Segundo-based U.S. subsidiary of Kinki Sharyo Co., is currently assembling 78 light rail cars for Metro, with delivery of the first car expected this month. The company has exercised an option to build an additional 97 cars under a 10-year, $891 million contract with the MTA. For now, the company is doing the work from a hangar in Palmdale. But after delays the company has said have cost it $2 million, Kinkisharyo is looking out of state for a site to build its plant. [...]
“The union claims are not truly about the environment, they are about trying to force union representation on the plant,” said Gary Toebben, president and CEO of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. [...]
In what may have been a last-ditch effort to stay in Palmdale, Kinkisharyo proposed renovating the hangar it is currently using, Ledford said. But the union-backed environmental group again challenged the plan and the company has already begun an out-of-state search, saying an appeal of the union-backed complaint would be too costly.
Palmdale is in the northernmost part of Los Angeles County, in the high desert of Antelope Valley and currently has an unemployment rate of 10.6%.
Yeah, Unions care soooooo much. Just not about, you know, people.
Washington Post (well-known reich-wing racist newspaper) reports that evidence looks to be substantiating officer Darren Wilson’s testimony.
Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post.
Some of the physical evidence — including blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests — also supports Wilson’s account of the shooting, The Post’s sources said, which cast Brown as an aggressor who threatened the officer’s life. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they are prohibited from publicly discussing the case. [...]
Seven or eight African American eyewitnesses have provided testimony consistent with Wilson’s account, but none of them have spoken publicly out of fear for their safety, The Washington Post’s sources said.
Geez, I wonder why? I mean, isn’t the ultimate goal of all involved is to determine the facts?
Benjamin L. Crump, a lawyer for the Brown family, said Brown’s family and supporters will not be persuaded by the autopsy report or eyewitness statements that back Wilson’s account of the incident.
“The family has not believed anything the police or this medical examiner has said,” Crump said. “They have their witnesses. We have seven witnesses that we know about that say the opposite.”
Oh. In other words, don’t bother them with facts, they have their own “reality” to use in order to have Darren Wilson dead by any means necessary.
So where are the staunchiest peoples who claimed this could never happen, and promised their support in fighting it if it did?
California’s Department of Managed Health Care has ordered all insurance plans in the state to immediately begin covering elective abortion. Not Plan B. Not contraceptives. Elective surgical dismemberment abortion.
At the insistence of the American Civil Liberties Union, the DMHC concluded that a 40-year-old state law requiring health plans to cover “basic health services” had been misinterpreted all these decades. Every plan in the state was immediately ordered, effective August 22, to cover elective abortion. California had not even applied this test to its own state employee health plans (which covered only “medically necessary” abortions). But this novel reading was nevertheless quietly imposed on every plan in the state by fiat.
The news has slowly leaked out as insurers grappling with this change have begun quietly informing employers of this sudden change in the terms of their policy. This is how Kaiser Permanente broke the news to one California church that its insurance policy for its pastors and staff would now include elective abortion coverage:
I want to formally share with you that on August 22, 2014, the Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) notified Kaiser Permanente and other affected health plans in writing regarding group contracts that exclude ‘voluntary termination of pregnancy.’
This letter made clear that the DMHC considered health care services related to the termination of pregnancies – whether or not a voluntary termination – a medically necessary basic health care service for which all health care services plans must provide coverage under the Knox-Keene Health Care Service Plan Act. You may recall that at the request of some employer groups with religious affiliations, Kaiser Permanente submitted a regulatory filing in May 2012 properly notifying the DMHC of a benefit plan option that excluded coverage of voluntary terminations of pregnancies. The DMHC did not object to this filing, permitting Kaiser Permanente to offer such a coverage contract to large group purchasers that requested it. The DMHC acknowledged that it previously permitted these contract exclusions, but now is requiring health care service plans to provide coverage of all terminations of pregnancies, effective immediately. To that end, the DMHC requires Kaiser Permanente and similar health care service plans to initiate steps to modify their plan contracts accordingly.
Effective August 22, Kaiser Permanente will comply with this regulatory mandate.
How soon will Leftists take the next step and force doctors and nurses to participate in abortions or face losing their license?
There is no embed feature for this piece of child-abuse on vimeo. Little girls – about 7 to 10 years old, using the filthiest language around while quoting a number of oft-debunked myths. From the description:
Facing a future where women are still paid 23% less than men for the same work, and where 1 in 5 women are raped or sexually assaulted in gender-based violence, little girls between 6 and 13 years-old dressed as pretty pink princesses drop F-bombs to draw attention to society’s continued sexism. Asking the question, “What’s more offensive? A little girl saying f*ck or the sexist way society treats girls and women” these adorably articulate little ladies in sparkling tiaras turn the “princess in distress” stereotype on its head and contrast the F-word with words and statistics society should find shocking such as “pay inequality” and “rape.” The video also features a 12 year-old boy wearing a pink gown standing up against sexism saying, “When you tell boys not to ‘act like a girl,’ it’s because you think it’s bad to be a girl.”
I cannot tell you how angry and disgusted I am with this piece of slickly produced shit.
Whoops, found it
UPDATE Poor wittle child abusers were getting beat up in their comments … they just moved the video … so here’s the new link and embed
UPDATE II John Sexton looks a bit closer at FCKH8.com
The video has already been viewed more than half a million times thanks largely to Upworthy, the progressive video sharing site. Upworthy’s Angie Aker, who is apparently a single mom, pronounced it a “fine piece of work” without mentioning that it’s an advertisement for a for-profit T-shirt company.
Upworthy apparently did get some blow-back on the clip, not because of the content but because of a previous controversy involving FCKH8.com. There is now a disclaimer on the site saying, “FCKH8 is definitely a far-from-perfect organization, and boy, do we share some of the concerns our audience might have with the organization itself regarding its practices.”
That a reference to controversy surrounding a similar ad the group released last month featuring black children from Ferguson, MO reading a script about racism. The clip became controversial when some people noticed it was connected to a for profit site. A news site called ColorLines accused the group of trying to profit off “black death” and racism. Another blogger called the company “accidentally racist” and “oblivious.”
In addition, a parent of two of the children in the Ferguson clip later complained that FCKH8.com had only paid her kids about $50 even after the clip went viral and, presumably, sold a lot of T-shirts. Luke Montgomery, who produced the clip, told the Riverfront Times the criticism made him sad and added, “It hasn’t even broken even in terms of production costs.”
As for the video of cursing kids, many of the comments on the group’s Vimeo page seem to be critical of the clip. Is there still a line between activism and for-profit advertising? FCKH8.com seems determined to find out.
