De-Fanging Planned Parenthood Failed

(Image by Gary Varvel)

Mike Adams, a former Democrat and Planned Parenthood supporter, discusses his journey of discovery and asks:  What will Planned Parenthood have to do for any supporter to stop supporting them? 

So for now, Ken Adams' call for Planned Parenthood to tear down this wall won't be answered until more politicians and voters are convinced of the organization's monstrous deeds.

Unfortunately, we're working against a lion's share of misplaced outrage.

What's Up PC Commissar?

Bugs Bunny & Company has been making audiences laugh for just over 75 years now (27 July 2015).
But not everyone thinks Looney Tunes is funny, especially our self-appointed PC Commissars, who like to remind us what's not appropriate humor.
Fortunately, Mark Steyn reminds us what has made Merry Melodies/Looney Tunes so amusing all this time in his Bunny in Winter article. 
I love his retort "...the images of people of non-color aren't terribly positive..."
In other words, the cartoons are equal opportunity offenders to the human race in general.
Here's to another 75 years of zany comedy and merry mayhem--along with driving the PC Commissars crazy.

Still Yapping About Immigration

(Image by Lisa Benson)

Since my short hiatus the GOP pachyderm herd, which has grown to 17 candidates, is still yapping about immigration reform, but doing very little about it.  (While the Obamunists are doing everything they can to encourage it).

Ann Coulter reminds the GOP that we're just not that into immigrants.

VDH advises we need a sensible approach to immigration.

Otherwise, Mark Steyn warns, we'll be on the Pathway to Codswallop with an ineffective insanity defense.

Planned Parenthood's Grim Reaping

(Image by Lisa Benson)

It would be nice if I could drop off-line for several days and there'd be no bad news for me to catch up on. 

Unfortunately, while I've been busy at work; attending a writers conference, visiting family on the east coast and bringing my car in for factory-recall maintenance; the bad news still piled up.

Before going on my short hiatus, I first heard about Planned Parenthood's organ-harvesting operation from political cartoonists, like Gary Varvel.

The story becomes more sordid as each video has been made public. 

Meanwhile, the non-FOX News stations are more concerned about, and helping fuel leftist outrage, over a dentist bagging a lion in Zimbabwe.

Since I'm still catching up with the news of the past several days, Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist, came up with 10 Quick, Important Developments of the Planned Parenthood Scandal that provides a good summary of this still-unfolding scandal.

Brush Fires in Central Washington State

My partner and I had a busy shift yesterday, especially when a brush fire shut down a portion of I-90.

The Poor, Drug Abusing, Depressed Jihadi

I'm amazed that a single, racist mass-murder is considered proof-positive by self-hating leftists that the entire Caucasian ethnic group is genetically predisposed to racism.

And yet, one now-dead jihadi wannabee is considered a lone wolf, and his murder of four Marines and one Sailor had nothing to do with Islam.

Yesterday, the Ministry of Truth has latched on to his drug abuse and depression, along with the idea that he wasn't carrying an ISIS/Al-Qaeda membership card with him when Chattanooga's Finest put an end to his killing spree.

The PJ Tatler offerd some helpful hints to a perplexed media and investigators.

Not that they'll listen.

Nicolai Sennels reminded us that poor, insane Muslim terrorists with family problems are still Muslim terrorists.

Not that they'll listen to any of this either.

Our Senslessly Sensless Society

I've been at a writers conference for the past few days, and have been off-line for most of the time I was attending.

Last week, before heading out to do a quick workout before commuting to the conference, I caught the initial headline about the shooting in Chattanooga, TN, similar to this one, on Yahoo News.

I was hoping this weekend would consist of slow news days, so as not to "interfere" with my pre-loaded posts.

As of yesterday, even the banners on Fox News asked something like:  What was the motive of the Chattanooga shooter?


I try not to stereotype people, but when it comes to terrorism, any variation to the name Mohammed says it all:

The motivation is jihad.

I had a difficult time focusing, not to mention enjoying, portions of the writers conference.  During the panel discussion on writing historical novels, a couple of the panelists got choked-up over discussing the tragedies that overcame people who're now long gone, while nothing was said whatsoever of our recent fallen heroes.

I agree with Mark Steyn's Senslessness and Sensibility commentary: 

A Chinese-made teddy bear from Wal-Mart is not an appropriate reaction. Righteous anger is.

Which reminds me of the quote I've memorized from Beowulf:

It is better to avenge the deaths of near and dear ones, than to indulge in mourning.

And speaking if indulgences, The Diplomad rolls-in and gives leftists credit for the Chattanooga murders.

Political Correctness Is Killing Comedy

My favorite line in Julie Borowski's latest video: 

When did college students become so boring?  (0:21 into the video)

When indeed.

In my lifetime college kids went from Animal House partiers to Komsomol indoctrinated commissars of political correctness.

The Four Commentators of the Apocalypse

(Image from:  Villain Spotlight--The Four Horsemen--Evil Geeks.com)
I thought I'd end this week by returning to this week's "Peace In Our Time" moment, the Nuke Deal with Iran.
For this post, I selected recent articles by some of my favorite commentators.
Four to be exact.
I'll start off with the scholarly VDH, who also provided the inspiration for this post's title:  The Four Horsemen of a Looming Apocalypse.
Former Spook calls the deal:  the Capitulation.

While another ex-government employee turned blogger, The Diplomad, calls it The Great Con.
And the last commentator to gallop up is Mark Steyn, who feels what we'll be faced with is far worse than Munich.

Opinions and concerns are unanimous:  War is coming.
Only the details of how the upcoming conflict unfolds remain uncertain.

WH Only Loves Thugs

Apparently since Kathryn Steinle, who was laid to rest last week, wasn't a thug, Our Dear Leader and his minions haven't bothered to extend their condolences to the grieving family.

I guess since there's no Skittles-eating, "Hands Up Don't Shoot," race-baiting, Big Lie so "no crises goes to waste," Team Hope & Change could care less.

Katie Pavlich thinks this is disgraceful.

So do I, especially since Obama's set the precedent of meddling in local law enforcement matters numerous times in the past, not to mention our current immigration policy and plethora of sanctuary cities.

Teenage Girl Survives Plane Crash in WA State

A teenage girl was the sole survivor of a small plane crash that occurred last weekend.

Our agency, the WA State Emergency Management Division, got involved almost from the start.

It started off as an Overdue Aircraft, called-in by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center on Saturday night.

By Sunday morning, WA State Department of Transportation's Aviation Division (WSDOT-AVN) and the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) were flying search missions. 

On Monday, Autumn Veatch was picked up by a motorist, taken to a general store where she called 911.

Autumn's ordeal made national (CNN) and international (The Guardian) news.

Here's a snippet of the 911 call.
