‘Conservative cooties’? Broadway Cares cancels AIDS fundraiser because Ted Cruz

Stephen Miller @redsteeze

Who would have guessed. Ted Cruz more tolerant than @BCEFA #UniteBlue #NOH8 #OneLove



4:36 PM - 24 Apr 2015

Ah, but you see, for the Left, tolerance is a one-way street.

From the April 23 edition of The New York Times:


But on Monday night, at a reception for him at the Manhattan apartment of two prominent gay hoteliers, the Texas senator and Republican presidential hopeful [Ted Cruz] struck quite a different tone.

During the gathering, according to two people present, Mr. Cruz said he would not love his daughters any differently if one of them was gay. He did not mention his opposition to same-sex marriage, saying only that marriage is an issue that should be left to the states.

The dinner and “fireside chat” for about a dozen people with Mr. Cruz and his wife, Heidi, was at the Central Park South penthouse of Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner, longtime business partners who were once a couple and who have been pioneers in the gay hospitality industry.



Being civil toward Ted Cruz apparently has consequences

Again CNN comes through for the LEFT... Hillary this time.

 

CNN (Clinton Network News)

 

Inside Clinton's Benghazi emails

 

(CNN)The day after the Benghazi terror attack, a staffer for Arizona Sen. John McCain emailed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's office to convey praise for her remarks to State Department employees after the attack.

Her statement to employees about the tragedy was "wonderful, strong and moving," said the McCain staffer, who asked Clinton's office to convey the senator's appreciation of the remarks.

Ultimately, McCain turned into a fierce critic of Clinton over the attack. And Clinton's handling of Benghazi has been scrutinized and has cast a shadow over her tenure leading the State Department. But the friendly exchange between their two offices in the immediate aftermath of the 2012 attack is among a set of emails that could be publicly released by the State Department as early as this week.

This (Benghazi) did not have to go down this way. All that was required was the State Dept. to come out and say 3 words...We Screwed Up. They say these words, and the story goes away.

I cannot find who authored this bit, but did find it referenced as early as 2006. Whatever . . . I like it.

 

 

Conundrum

Free people are not equal. Equal people are not free.

"A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

 

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

 

That pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.

Makes you wonder who is doing the math.

 

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our government and cultural environment:

 

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

 

2. We constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money. What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.

 

Last but not least :

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.

 

Am I the only one missing something?

Robert Downey Jr. is over your tendency to politicize everything
Amy Miller
Wednesday, April 29, 2015

Last week, Iron Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron star Robert Downey, Jr. walked out of an Avengers promotional interview after British journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy decided to dive into the motivation behind a comment RDJ made in 2008 about the correlation between incarceration and progressivism. Here’s the offending utterance:


“I have a really interesting political point of view, and it’s not always something I say too loud at dinner tables here, but you can’t go from a $2,000-a-night suite at La Mirage to a penitentiary and really understand it and come out a liberal. You can’t. I wouldn’t wish that experience on anyone else, but it was very, very, very educational for me and has informed my proclivities and politics every since.”


It was an ambush seven years in the making.

Here’s what happened when Guru-Murthy decided to go all 60 Minutes on the actor during what was billed as a superhero movie promo spot:

This is what we call a blistering take on a non-issue.

 

I believe in the right to enjoy life free from the trappings of looming outrage. I believe in the importance of unplugging from the sausage grinder and watching a movie about men in spandex saving the world. But most importantly, I believe in supporting people who take a stand against the ridiculous crap that passes for a Hot Take© on a Pressing Issue©, when all anyone wanted was to hear about a fun, family-friendly movie that isn’t meant to offend or exclude anyone.

 

Deal with it.

A FRENCH SOLDIER'S VIEW OF US SOLDIERS IN AFGHANISTAN

 

http://www.warriorlodge.com/blogs/news/16298760-a-french-soldiers-view-of-us-soldiers-in-afghanistan

 

What follows is an account from a French ISAF soldier that was stationed with American Warfighters in Afghanistan sometime in the past 6 years. This was copied and translated from an editorial French newspaper.

 

A NOS FRERES D’ARMES AMERICAINS

 

"We have shared our daily life with two US units for quite a while - they are the first and fourth companies of a prestigious infantry battalion whose name I will withhold for the sake of military secrecy. To the common man it is a unit just like any other. But we live with them and got to know them, and we henceforth know that we have the honor to live with one of the most renowned units of the US Army - one that the movies brought to the public as series showing "ordinary soldiers thrust into extraordinary events". Who are they, those soldiers from abroad, how is their daily life, and what support do they bring to the men of our OMLT every day? Few of them belong to the Easy Company, the one the TV series focuses on. This one nowadays is named Echo Company, and it has become the support company.

 

They have a terribly strong American accent - from our point of view the language they speak is not even English. How many times did I have to write down what I wanted to say rather than waste precious minutes trying various pronunciations of a seemingly common word? Whatever State they are from, no two accents are alike and they even admit that in some crisis situations they have difficulties understanding each other. Heavily built, fed at the earliest age with Gatorade, proteins and creatine- they are all heads and shoulders taller than us and their muscles remind us of Rambo. Our frames are amusingly skinny to them - we are wimps, even the strongest of us - and because of that they often mistake us for Afghans.

 

And they are impressive warriors! We have not come across bad ones, as strange at it may seem to you when you know how critical French people can be. Even if some of them are a bit on the heavy side, all of them provide us everyday with lessons in infantry know-how. Beyond the wearing of a combat kit that never seem to discomfort them (helmet strap, helmet, combat goggles, rifles etc.) the long hours of watch at the outpost never seem to annoy them in the slightest. On the one square meter wooden tower above the perimeter wall they stand the five consecutive hours in full battle rattle and night vision goggles on top, their sight unmoving in the directions of likely danger. No distractions, no pauses, they are like statues nights and days. At night, all movements are performed in the dark - only a handful of subdued red lights indicate the occasional presence of a soldier on the move. Same with the vehicles whose lights are covered - everything happens in pitch dark even filling the fuel tanks with the Japy pump.Here we discover America as it is often depicted: their values are taken to their paroxysm, often amplified by promiscuity and the loneliness of this outpost in the middle of that Afghan valley.

 

And combat? If you have seen Rambo you have seen it all - always coming to the rescue when one of our teams gets in trouble, and always in the shortest delay. That is one of their tricks: they switch from T-shirt and sandals to combat ready in three minutes. Arriving in contact with the enemy, the way they fight is simple and disconcerting: they just charge! They disembark and assault in stride, they bomb first and ask questions later - which cuts any pussyfooting short.Honor, motherland - everything here reminds of that: the American flag floating in the wind above the outpost, just like the one on the post parcels. Even if recruits often originate from the hearth of American cities and gang territory, no one here has any goal other than to hold high and proud the star spangled banner. Each man knows he can count on the support of a whole people who provides them through the mail all that an American could miss in such a remote front-line location: books, chewing gums, razorblades, Gatorade, toothpaste etc. in such way that every man is aware of how much the American people backs him in his difficult mission.

Obama: 'I'll Still Be a Pretty Young Man' When I Leave White House
DANIEL HALPER

Apr 30, 2015

 

President Obama told a Washington, D.C. classroom today he'll "still be a pretty young man" when he finishes his second term in the White House. And that he wants to help people after his presidency.

 

"That's the kind of work that I really love to do," Obama told the kids, according to the White House pool report.
