As you read this I am in Maine with DaWife. I promised that my laptop would not be with me so here are some stories to keep you busy until I come back on Friday.
Item: The Constitution as a threat
At least that is the perception of some people on the left
Phil Cleary, handed out pocket Constitutions on campus in honor of Constitution Day. He had a table with literature promoting Youth for Western Civilization, a group dedicated to traditional values and western civilization, and engaged in students and faculty passing by.
Then, the leftists showed up to heckle.
The young man in the video, Blair Jordon Moses, threatened to “exercise” his 2nd amendment rights if he perceived that there was any kind of threat to the Multicultural Center. He did not define what a threat would constitute but suggested that the existence of the group Youth for Western Civilization would count.
Well he is a Black Panther sympathizer it’s not like the faculty is doing this too:
At the same time, a faculty member approached the group. She took some of the literature and asked Phil, “Is this a white supremacist group?” Phil answered “Absolutely not.” To which the woman replied, “It looks like one.”
Who is this woman? Susana Pelayo – Woodward, Director of the Office of Cultural Diversity.
Instead of promoting cultural diversity, which is part of her job, she chose to show her bias against a group that would promote western culture and tradition. She had no problem with the leftist students heckling the conservative, but actually seems to agree that freedom, the Constitution, and western civilization is all tied into white supremacy.
Because nothing says “White Supremacy” like passing out the US Constitution:
Item: And we respect the 1st Amendment, kinda:
Unless you live in North Carolina I’ll wager you didn’t see this story:
According to former Guilford County Republican Chairman, Marcus Kindley, the GOP Headquarters there have been vandalized. Kindley reports that the letters “KKK” were spray painted on the building in a number of places. Kindley told Katy’s Conservative Corner that the incident happened either late last Saturday or early this Sunday morning
Via Kathy’s conservative Corner who notes:
Greensboro is no stranger to Klan activity, but ironically, the Klan has been traditionally run by Democratic operatives. The city continues to be a hotbed of liberal activity and Kindley suspects the culprits may be students at either nearby Guilford College or UNC-Greensboro.
Kindley is afraid that his party will see more of these attacks. In a speech last week, President Barack H. Obama exhorted his followers “to put your marching boots on” and some within the Guilford County GOP feel that this a local result.
Do they have a multicultural center? I’d check there first.
Item: It’s not only US taxpayers on the hook for Solyndra:
Hey when you are blindly chasing the liberal dream you’ve got to expect liberal states will chase it hardest:
Out of the hundreds of out-of-work employees, vendors, investors and other creditors in the bankruptcy of government-backed solar-panel maker Solyndra LLC, one name stands out: the California Democratic Party.
Why California Democrats would be creditor to a company that received more than a half-billion dollars in federal loans to build a solar-panel plant isn’t clear. Even party officials say they’re not sure.
The California Democratic Party’s communications director, Tenoch Flores, said the organization was not owed “any funds in any form” by the California-based company. He said he was unclear why the party would be listed as a creditor in Solyndra’s bankruptcy filing.

Someone’s got some splainin’ to do.
Item: The Gunwalker bomb continues to tick:
While the MSM continues to ignore gunwalker the bombshells keep coming
An ATF source has provided reporters a copy of a letter sent on June 1, 2010 which indicates that the monumental scandal known as ‘Project Gunwalker,’ or ‘Operation Fast and Furious,’ was never a sting operation as previously reported. If such an allegation is true, then the official Obama Administration explanation for the operation is entirely false.
The commonly-reported talking point concerning Gunwalker is that it was intended as a sting operation but that it went bad when rogue ATF agents took it in a sinister direction.
But the letter of June 2010, forwarded to reporters David Codrea and Mike Vanderboegh, indicates that nothing about the operation contained any of the elements of a ‘sting.’ Everything ATF agents did in placing guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels was done in the open and with the approval of their supervisors
Sooner or later there will be a debate with Barack Obama and the republican Nominee and if the media doesn’t ask the question the nominee will, then BOOM!
Item: the Molly Norris lesson:
The hikers who were finally freed by Iran had thanks for some interesting people on the occasion of
the ransom being paid on being bailed out of an Iranian jail:
…They also expressed gratitude to actor Sean Penn, boxer Muhammad Ali, philosopher Noam Chomsky, singer Yusuf Islam, U.S. anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan and Nobel Laureates Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Mairead Maguire.
The American Spectator comments thus:
Bauer went on to say that it was ironic they had been taken captive because “Sarah, Josh and I oppose U.S. policies towards Iran which perpetuate this hostility.”
But therein lies the problem. Iran makes no distinction between Americans who attend Berklee and those who attend Bob Jones University. They make no distinction between Americans who write for The Nation and Americans who write for The American Spectator. They don’t care if you like or dislike President Obama. Nor do they care if you are critical of U.S. foreign policy towards Iran. For that matter, Iran makes no distinction between the Bush Administration who didn’t view them as legitimate and the Obama Administration which sought to curry favor with them. To the Iranian regime, as with al Qaeda, all Americans are infidels. Short of converting to Islam and submitting to their way of life nothing will change that attitude.
If Bauer doesn’t understand that by now then he probably never will.
Remember Molly Norris apologized too and is still hiding for her life. Apparently they are still idiots, but no longer useful.
I trust this will tide you all over for a bit, see you on Friday or late Thursday.
