Progressives Outraged Over Bill To Force Students To Watch “Patriotic” Film

Considering President Obama continually shows disrespect for the United States and the principles of liberty it stands for, it should be no surprise that other Progressives dislike the nation as well.

For instance, Newsmax reports that Florida Progressives are up in arms over a bill that would require students to watch a patriotic film:

 “Florida State Sen. Alan Hays has triggered a firestorm of controversy by introducing a bill to require eighth- and 11th-graders watch conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary, “America: Imagine The World Without Her.”

The Orlando Weekly called the film “conservative agitprop,” warning that D’ Souza is “anti-Obama, anti-progressive [and] anti-liberal.”

An Orlando Sentinel columnist wrote that the film illustrated that “if you could cash in on crazy, Florida would be the richest state in America.”

But in an interview with Newsmax TV this summer, Hays and D’Souza emphasized that they were only asking for balance in the classroom.

D’Souza pointed to the fact that Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11 and Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” are “routinely shown in schools as an educational tool to illuminate people and foster debate.”

Considering the Progressives are pushing the adoption of Common Core standards in public schools which is filled with decidedly anti-American propaganda, one is left to wonder if the idea of making students watch a pro-American film is either a good start, or just too little…too late.

Civil War? Harry Reid Tells White House To “Get a Life”

It’s not all hugs and kisses in Progressive paradise lately. The National Review reports that Senator Harry Reid recently told the White House to “Get a Life”:

It seems that it’s not all hugs and kisses in Progressive paradise lately. The National Review reports that Senator Harry Reid recently told the White House to “Get a Life”:

“The New York Timesreports that the rift between Reid and the Obama administration over David Krone, Reid’s top staff member, who made a series of highly critical remarks about the president earlier this month.

Reid also appears furious at the White House for their targeting of his top aide and close friend. ”They should just get over it,” he told the Times. “I have a good relationship with the president. This is all staff driven. Get a life. Forget about this.”

It appears the prema-donna that is President Obama doesn’t appreciate criticism from anyone. If if it’s from a staff member on the Democrat team.

Warren: “It’s Not The Size Of Government That Worries People”

Posted by P.W. Adams on Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 at 6:41 pm

During a speech at the Center for American Progress Wednesday, the National Journal reports that Democrat Senator, Elizabeth Warren, said that people aren’t worried about the size of Government:

” At the CAP event, which was more policy-centric, Warren pushed back against GOP claims that the midterm elections were a referendum on government overreach.

“One thing has not changed: The stock market and GDP continue to go up, while families around this country are getting squeezed harder and harder,” she said. “This is not about big government or small government. It’s not the size of government that worries people. Rather, it’s a concern for who government works for.”

If Senator Warren really does have Presidential aspirations she may wish to exit her Progressive echo chamber. Because according to a recent Gallop poll the American people list Government among one of their top concerns. And last year 72% of the American people saw Big Government as the greatest threat.

But then again, if Warren actually listened to the demands of the American people, she wouldn’t be considered… a Progressive.

Missouri’s Carnahan Family To Sell Last Of Its U.S. Wind Farms

Posted by P.W. Adams on Monday, November 17th, 2014 at 8:29 pm

In 2009 Tom Carnahan, brother to former Democratic Senator Russ Carnahan and Robin Carnahan, former Missouri Secretary of State, received $107 Million dollars from the Obama Stimulus to build a wind farm under a company he founded in 2005 named Wind Capital Group LLC.  The wind farm was called Lost Creek Ridge and built in DeKalb County, Missouri. At the time is was touted by Vice President Joe Biden as an example of how the Obama Stimulus was working.

Five years later it would appear that the Obama Stimulus hasn’t been all it was proclaimed to be. So it is only fitting that the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that Wind Capital Group LLC is now selling the last of its U.S. based wind farms, which includes Lost Creek Ridge:

“St. Louis-based wind farm developer Wind Capital Group LLC is looking to sell its remaining wind farms as its Ireland-based parent shifts focus to Europe.

NTR PLC, which owns Wind Capital, announced this week that it had tapped Chicago-based Marathon Capital LLC to find a buyer for its two Midwest wind farms: the 150-megawatt Lost Creek wind farm in northwestern Missouri and the 210-megawatt Post Rock farm in Kansas.

In 2012 NTR PLC became the majority partner in Wind Capital Group LLC but Tom Carnahan still holds a minority interest in the company.

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Ferguson Activists Discuss Plans to Target White Areas (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Monday, November 17th, 2014 at 4:30 pm

Lisa Fithian was a key organizer of the violent demonstrations that caused the shutdown of the 1999 WTO meetings in Seattle, Washington. She is an anti-capitalist revolutionary.

Anarchist leader Lisa Fithian held several training sessions this month for Ferguson activists. At least 600 “activists” have already been trained.

On Saturday one of her trainers told the attendees at a session that they were going to target white areas.

“Personally, I think we DONT need to be on West Florissant. I wanna advocate that we go on South Florissant because the people on South Florissant don’t look like me. The people on West Florissant look like me and they’re with it. So… I really don’t have anything to protest on West Florissant. So if I’m in the area I’m going to Ferguson Police Department.”

Liar In Chief: Obama Brags About His 31 Million Twitter Followers; *Flashback* 19 Million Are Fake

Posted by P.W. Adams on Sunday, November 16th, 2014 at 3:44 pm

If it’s lying about fictional Climate Change or lying about Obamacare, President Obama has a history of telling out right lies to push forward his agenda. But it seems he isn’t above lying about something else. His number of twitter followers.

During a speech at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, President Obama bragged to the audience about his 31 million Twitter followers:

“Your studies have warned the world about the urgent threat of Climate Change. In fact last year I even tweeted one of your studies to my 31 million followers on Twitter. Just bragging a little bit.”

Video below:

Unfortunately President Obama failed to heed Charles Krauthammer’s recent warning to Nancy Pelosi: “If you’re going to lie make sure there isn’t video.” Or in the President’s case, facts that prove otherwise.

In September of 2013 the British Newspaper, The Daily Mail, revealed that 19 Million of President Obama’s followers on Twitter were fake:

Among influential U.S. political tweeters, President Barack Obama is the undisputed king of the fake followers. A MailOnline analysis ranks his sizable Twitter following as the most deceptive total among the 21 most influential accounts run by American politicians: More than 19.5 million of his 36.9 million Twitter followers are accounts that don’t correspond to real people.

It would seem as time goes on that Republican Representative Joe Wilson was correct when he yelled those now famous words at President Obama:

“You Lie!”

Mayor de Blasio Signs Bills To Limit Deportation of Illegals

President Obama has threatened to use his Executive powers to over haul the immigration process by the end of November. It would seem that other Progressives aren’t going to wait that long.

The Queen’s Chronicle reports that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio signed two bills on Friday curbing the deportation of Illegals from the city:

Mayor de Blasio signed two bills into law on Friday that mandate the city to reject most requests from the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain undocumented immigrants for deportation, except in limited circumstances.

Intro. 486-A, prohibits the New York Police Department and the city Department of Correction to honor detainer requests, unless there’s a judicial warrant. Other exceptions include if the immigrant is on the U.S. terrorist watch list, has been convicted of a violent  crime or committed a serious crime in the past five years.

The other bill, Intro. 487-A, will cause ICE’s office on Rikers Island and other city facilities to close. It also prohibits correction officers from assisting federal authorities with the enforcement of detention.

At the bill signing ceremony, on the front steps of Our Lady Sorrows Church in Corona, the mayor said the legislation balance public safety with the city’s effort to protect the rights of immigrants.”

What’s next on the Progressive agenda in New York city?

Allowing non-citizens to vote, what else?

Elizabeth Warren Now An “Official Leader” of Democrats; Some Dems Wonder Why

Posted by P.W. Adams on Saturday, November 15th, 2014 at 12:56 am

Last week we reported on how there was talk among the Progressive Democrats about remaking the Party in the image of Elizabeth Warren. It would appear that this is coming to fruition.

Politico reports that Elizabeth Warren has officially been given a leadership role in the Democrat Party:

“CHRIS HAYES: Elizabeth Warren is now officially a leader of the Democrats. In a closed-door meeting today that lasted nearly 4 hours, Senator Warren’s colleagues in the upper chamber voted to give her an key role in reshaping the party’s policy.”

The fact that many on the right failed to see this coming, pales to the realization that the Huff Post reports many Senate Democrats didn’t see it either:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) got a promotion on Thursday. She now has a seat at the Senate Democratic leadership table and, in a role created just for her, she will serve as a policy adviser and voice for progressives.

Her colleagues have no idea why this is happening.

“A liaison to liberals? I’ve never heard of such a thing,” said Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), throwing his hands in the air. “I asked her about it and she said she was some kind of adviser. I don’t know what it is. I don’t know what that all means.”

“I didn’t even know this was happening. I never knew it,” said Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.). “I mean, they can pick whoever they want to.”

Considering the Democrat Party had no problem with lying to the American people when it came to Obamacare, it’s more than likely that they are feigning surprise at Warren’s promotion to a leadership role.

Warren for President in 2016 is becoming more and more likely, as there are daily signs that Hillary is being thrown under the bus.

Mike Beilstein, a City Council member in Corvallis Oregon, is not new to controversy. In 2012 he turned his back on the American flag during the pledge of allegiance. He is also known to keep a Cuban flag on his laptop during City Council meetings. But recently, Mr. Beilstein has outdone himself.

A citizen journalist recently recorded a conversation with Mr. Beilstein where he admits he is a Communist and that “Karl Marx is a great humanitarian and intellectual” also admiting he is a “fan” of Communist mass murder, Che Guevara:

Interviewer: “You like Karl Marx? You worship his work?”

Mike Beilstein:I think Karl Marx was a great humanitarian and intellectual, don’t you?”

Interviewer: “Are you a fan of Che Guevara?”

Mike Beilstein: “Yea, he was a real idealist.”
