New Yorker writer living in fear as Big Apple is invaded by Christian chicken sandwiches

New York City progressives pride themselves on embracing all viewpoints and choices — AS LONG AS THEY’RE THE APPROVED KIND. Get a load of this triggering:

Imagine living your life this panicked:

New York has taken to Chick-fil-A. One of the Manhattan locations estimates that it sells a sandwich every six seconds, and the company has announced plans to open as many as a dozen more storefronts in the city. And yet the brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. Its headquarters, in Atlanta, is adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet. Its stores close on Sundays. Its C.E.O., Dan Cathy, has been accused of bigotry for using the company’s charitable wing to fund anti-gay causes, including groups that oppose same-sex marriage. “We’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation,” he once said, “when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’ ” The company has since reaffirmed its intention to “treat every person with honor, dignity and respect,” but it has quietly continued to donate to anti-L.G.B.T. groups. When the first stand-alone New York location opened, in 2015, a throng of protesters appeared. When a location opened in a Queens mall, in 2016, Mayor Bill de Blasio proposed a boycott. No such controversy greeted the opening of this newest outpost. Chick-fil-A’s success here is a marketing coup. Its expansion raises questions about what we expect from our fast food, and to what extent a corporation can join a community.

How long will it be until libs start calling Chick-fil-A “assault sandwiches” and demand somebody do something to limit the number of locations?

Shocker! Guess where some of the Obama admin’s ‘pallet of cash’ to Iran ended up

Who didn’t see this coming?

The U.S. government has traced some of the $1.7 billion released to Iran by the Obama administration to Iranian-backed terrorists in the two years since the cash was transferred.

According to knowledgeable sources, Iran has used the funds to pay its main proxy, the Lebanon-based terrorist group Hezbollah, along with the Quds Force, Iran’s main foreign intelligence and covert action arm and element of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

The U.S. money supplied to Iran as part of an arms settlement dating back to the 1970s also has been traced to Iran’s backing of Houthi rebels seeking to take power in Yemen. Iran has been supporting the Yemen rebels as part of a bid to encircle and eventually take control of Saudi Arabia.

It’s getting so you can’t ship a couple billion in cash to the world’s #1 state sponsor of terrorism without them using the money to fund terrorism. All that just to get the Ayatollah to agree to the Iran Deal, done for the sole purpose of getting Obama something else to hang on the “Legacy” wall of his presidential library.

By the way, most of the mainstream media won’t mention this, partly because they’re too busy fangirling over North Korea at the Olympics.

Dems currently huddling to figure out how right-wingers and the NRA can still be blamed for this

After a bunch of lefties assumed a mosque fire in Houston was because of anti-Muslim backlash, this stopped them dead in their tracks:

This is the sound of liberal talking points going down the toilet:

But I’m still waiting for some libs to claim that the NRA is getting so out of control that they caused a Muslim man to snap and attempt to burn down his own house of worship. “GUN CONTROL NOW!”

Michael Moore has a message for The Donald outside Trump Tower

Take that, Donald!

Trump should go stand outside Moore’s NYC apartment building holding a sign that says “but we aren’t all anti-capitalist millionaires with multiple homes.”

Later on after he went and had dinner, Moore’s sign changed a little:

When ‘if you see something say something’ is outweighed by fear of PC police backlash

The Department of Homeland Security often says this: “If you see something, say something.”

Unfortunately a lot of people fear what might happen if they follow that advice, as evidenced by this person who noticed suspicious activity at a home where the people accused of killing 14 in San Bernardino had been living:

It was believed that the Redlands home was the home of Syed Farook’s sister and mother.

The second shooting suspect who was killed in a shootout with authorities was identified as Farook’s wife of two years, Tashfeen Malik, 27.

Neighbors in Redlands were shocked that the suspects had ties to their area.

“I was in awe that it was happening four houses down from my property,” one neighbor said.

A man who has been working in the area said he noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area in recent weeks, but decided not to report anything since he did not wish to racially profile those people.

“We sat around lunch thinking, ‘What were they doing around the neighborhood?’” he said. “We’d see them leave where they’re raiding the apartment.”

According to libs, it’s probably just easier to let them do whatever it is they’re doing and later blame it on Republican prayers and the NRA.

New lefty line of 2nd Amendment attack: Would Jesus join the NRA?

Actual title of a post on the Reuters blog: Would Jesus join the NRA?

Hey, can I play that game too?

The ridiculous Reuters piece closed this way — and keep in mind we were supposed to be talking about guns:

When the call of conscience trumps habit and history, surprising things can happen. From Jim Crow to women’s suffrage, it is only when men and women have brought their higher selves into the political realm that we have seen systems radically change.

It might not be as hard as we fear.

In other words, the 2nd Amendment is equatable with racism and sexism.

Speaking of Jesus, what’s the bible say about bearing false witness?

Within hours of the Benghazi attack, Obama admin officials took quick action by calling … YouTube?

Let those intent on harming Americans be put on notice: If you plan to harm or do harm a U.S. citizen, the Obama administration will swiftly and decisively contact video sharing websites:

Judicial Watch today released new State Department documents that raise more questions about the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission at Benghazi, Libya. The documents show the White House contacted YouTube over an Internet video as one of its first moves after the initial attack.

The documents, from the agency’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, were provided to Judicial Watch in response to a court order in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on October 16, 2014, (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01733)). The lawsuit seeks “any and all logs, reports, or other records” the Washington-based Diplomatic Security Command Center produced between September 10, 2012, and September 13, 2012, relating to the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya.”

The documents detail that only three hours after the initial attack on U.S. personnel in Benghazi, the White House contacted YouTube in an apparent effort to initially blame the assault on an obscure “Pastor John video,” rather than filmmaker Nakoula “Mark” Basseley Nakoula. The administration falsely claimed that Nakoula’s video, “Innocence of Muslims,” provoked the attack.

The documents are dissected here.

Hillary later flat-out lied to some family members of Benghazi victims by blaming “The Innocence of Muslims” video when it was in fact a planned, coordinated attack on the anniversary if 9/11.

Now there’s a good chance the same person who led the “it was the video” scapegoating might be put in charge of U.S. national security. Sleep well!

So how’s Obama’s plan to bring ISIS to its knees going?

Last year:

Today:

But I’m totally confident that the White House is correct when they claim their beloved Iran deal will degrade and ultimately eliminate Tehran’s ability to make a nuclear weapon.

Climate change is causing AGW alarmists’ ‘studies’ to be increasingly funny

The guzzlers of Al Gore’s Kool Aid are touting this “study” that affirms severe weather events are linked to man-made climate change.

Check out “study guideline” #1:

The scientists list the following questions as a guide to their study.

1. Given a particular weather pattern, how were the temperatures, precipitation, and associated impacts influenced by climate change?

2. Given a drought, how was the drying enhanced by climate change and how did that influence the moisture deficits and dryness of the soils, leading to a more intense and long-lasting drought?

3. Given a flood, where did the moisture come from? Was it increased by warmer ocean waters?

4. Given a heat wave, how was that influenced by drought, changes in precipitation, and extra heat from global warming?

5. Given extreme snow, where did the moisture come from? Was it related to oceans that are warmer?

6. Given an extreme storm, how was it influenced by sea temperatures, ocean heat content, unusual moisture transports?

7. Was a storm surge worse because of higher sea levels?

The “study” already achieved the desired outcome before the “study” was even conducted. Notice that #1 asked “how were” the factors influenced by climate change — not if they were or weren’t influenced by it at all.

Here’s the kicker from the “study”:

“The climate is changing: we have a new normal. The environment in which all weather events occur is not what it used to be. All storms, without exception, are different. Even if most of them look just like the ones we used to have, they are not the same.”

Just shut up and give them your money, rubes!

If only the world would have offered ‘Jihadi John’ some economic opportunity…

Last week, State Department spokesclown Marie Harf claimed that one ingredient in fighting terrorism is aiding in job creation so they have other opportunities and options. Obama agreed in an op-ed, writing that “the world has to offer today’s youth something better.”

If only this guy had been provided with some economic opportunity growing up:

The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked man with a British accent who has beheaded several hostages held by the Islamic State and who taunts audiences in videos circulated widely online.

But his real name, according to friends and others familiar with his case, is Mohammed Emwazi, a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming. He is believed to have traveled to Syria around 2012 and to have later joined the Islamic State, the group whose barbarity he has come to symbolize.

According to the Obama/State Department model, the poor kid never had a chance!
