Phyllis Schlafly Has The Sadz


"We have a government of three separate powers and they have their duties, rights and obligations, but nobody assigned to the judicial branch in the Constitution has the right to overturn the law that we’ve had for millennia. It’s just not the kind of country that we live in. A lot of people thought when the Supreme Court handed down its bad decision in Roe v Wade, well the Supreme Court has spoken and that’s it. That settles it. Well, it didn’t settle it. It was just the beginning of a big fight. And eventually that decision’s going to be overturned. But, meanwhile, we’ve cut big holes in it because the American people did not accept the ‘rule of law’ that one human being could belong to another human being. The same thing will happen here."
- Phyllis Schlafly, speaking to World Net Daily.


and you want to call yourself a patriot, Ms. Schlafly???

CNN Yanks Story After Reporter Claims ISIS Flag Was Seen At London Pride

There must be some red faces today at CNN. Earlier in the day a CNN reporter in London filed a report about an “ISIS” flag spotted at a gay pride parade in London. It later turned out that the black and white flag, which did vaguely resemble the terrorist group’s banner — from a distance — but upon closer examination (upper right corner) it turned out to be a mock-up full of images of sex toys. CNN has since taken the video down and there is no mention of the story, although if you search for “gay pride” on CNN’s web site you’ll find an item headlined ‘Woman says she spotted ISIS flag at gay pride parade’ next to an image from the video but when you click on the link the page says “This video is no longer available.” You can, however, watch a version of the video posted on YouTube:

...........

CNN quietly removed the story from its site but the below mirror of the clip has gained over 700K views since last night.

A man trolling the violently homophobic Islamic State at a London gay pride event got extra troll points Saturday for duping CNN. CNN reporter Lucy Pawle was at the event when she stumbled upon that man, who to her bewilderment, everyone seemed to be ignoring. Turns out his fake “ISIS flag” was made up of images of dildos, Mediaite discovered. Pawle tells CNN anchors that she was leaving work when she happened upon the annual London Gay Pride festival. She was shocked to see a man dressed in black and white carrying what she called “a very bad mimicry” but a “very clear attempt to mimic the ISIS flag.” Taking a closer look, she could tell the writing was not Arabic. No one else seemed to be concerned about it, so she went to the event organizer and the police, both of whom seemed to brush her off.

The hippies Scalia warned about:

SCALIA: "Who ever thought that intimacy and spirituality were freedoms?" he wrote. "And if intimacy is, one would think that Freedom of Intimacy is abridged rather than expanded by marriage. Ask the nearest hippie."

Gary Hart: Welcome to the age of vanity politics & campaigns-for-hire.

Welcome to the age of vanity politics and campaigns-for-hire. What would our founders make of this nightmare?

The abandonment of "the common good and the interests of the commonwealth." All of it is an outcome, Hart believes, "our founders would not recognize and would deplore." Hart writes:

On a more personal level, how can public service be promoted as an ideal to young people when this sewer corrupts our Republic? At this point in early twenty-first-century America, the greatest service our nation’s young people could provide is to lead an army of outraged young Americans armed with brooms on a crusade to sweep out the rascals and rid our capital of the money changers, rent seekers, revolving door dancers, and special interest deal makers and power brokers and send them back home to make an honest living, that is, if they still remember how to do so.

What angers truly patriotic Americans is that this entire Augean stable is legal. Even worse, recent Supreme Court decisions placing corporations under the First Amendment protection of free speech for political purposes compounds the tragedy of American democracy. For all practical political purposes, the government of the United States is for sale to the highest bidder.


Yet, a Washington media enamored of its own savviness and protective of "access" greets legalized corruption with a shrug and a "So what?" Hart continues:

Restoration of the Republic of Conscience requires reduction and eventual elimination of the integrity deficit. Virtue, the disinterestedness of our elected officials, must replace political careerism and special interests. The national interest, what is best for our country and coming generations, must replace struggles for power, bitter partisanship, and ideological rigidity. This is not dreamy idealism; it is an idealism rooted in the original purpose of this nation.
