Pompous, high-flying global warming alarmist John Kerry draws a red line on new farmland in Africa

**Written by Doug Powers The U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in DC had its moments, but perhaps none was more idiotic than John Kerry citing starvation and malnutrition statistics in Africa and using that as evidence that they need to halt the creation of new farmland to combat the global warming that's the cause of the hunger problem, or something.Un-freakin-real: During the Africa Summit “Resilience and Food Security in a Changing Climate” panel, Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience that ...

Readin’, Writin’, and Social Justice Agitatin’

Readin', Writin', and Social Justice Agitatin' by Michelle MalkinCreators SyndicateCopyright 2014 It's back-to-school season across the country. But in an increasing number of districts, “back to school” doesn't mean back to learning. Under the reign of social justice indoctrinators, academics are secondary to political agitation. Activism trumps achievement. In Massachusetts, the John J. Duggan Middle School will open on August 25 with a new name and mission. It is now a “social justice magnet...

Michelle Obama gives up self-awareness for the greater good: No one really cares what you had for lunch

**Written by Doug Powers The next thing you know President Obama will be saying “everybody knows you did build that.” From CNS News: First lady Michelle Obama said something Wednesday that seems preposterously ironic to many American school kids: “No one really cares what you had for lunch.” “I tease my kids,” Michelle Obama said at a White House event on women's empowerment with Laura Bush. “I tell them I want them to use Instagram to take a picture of something really important rather than the...

Hollywood lefty Robert Redford disputes $1.6 million tax bill; Joe Biden flashback encourages patriotism

**Written by Doug Powers Hollywood lefty Robert Redford is suing the state of New York in dispute of a $1.6 million tax bill. Because Redford endorsed Team Obama in 2012, maybe one of the people he supported can convince him to stop complaining and just pay the tab for the greater good, whether it's legally owed or not: **Written by Doug PowersTwitter @ThePowersThatBe

Joe Biden’s mastery of geography continues to amaze

**Written by Doug Powers Geography master Joe Biden demonstrated his prowess again yesterday. From the “imagine if Sarah Palin said this” file, here's Biden's latest: “There is no reason the nation of Africa cannot, and should not, join the ranks of the worlds most prosperous nations,” Biden said. Biden sometimes doesn't know what state or century he's in so that's not really very surprising.**Written by Doug PowersTwitter @ThePowersThatBe

Honest mistakes to be sure: Audit of federal spending can’t account for at least $619 billion

**Written by Doug Powers Somewhere there are probably people getting very, very rich thanks to “accounting errors” like these: A government website intended to make federal spending more transparent was missing at least $619 billion from 302 federal programs, a government audit has found. And the data that does exist is wildly inaccurate, according to the Government Accountability Office, which looked at 2012 spending data. Only 2% to 7% of spending data on USASpending.gov is “fully consistent w...

Nancy Pelosi’s ‘unusual breach of decorum’ on the House floor

**Written by Doug Powers During Friday night's debate about the border bill, Rep. Tom Marino apparently pushed the right buttons: In an unusual breach of decorum, even for the divided Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi chased Rep. Tom Marino across the House floor, taking offense at comments by the Pennsylvania Republican during debate on the border funding bill Friday night. “We don't have law and order,” Marino began as he wrapped up his comments on the border supplemental. “My colle...

Pelosi: Qataris have told me Hamas is a humanitarian organization

**Written by Doug Powers Here's a shorter version of Nancy Pelosi: Israel's right. Hamas is right. If we help Israel maintain their Iron Dome, Hamas can vent their anger and nobody gets hurt — it's a win/win! At least that's how I interpreted this incredibly inane doublespeak: Pelosi said the first thing to do is to “avoid conflict” that “Hamas initiated.” “[T]his has to be something where we try to have the two-state solution, that we have to support…(Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud) Abb...

Obama administration building own version Iron Dome to protect John Kerry from Israeli criticism

MSNBC host asks important question: Is world suffering from lack of racial diversity in emoticons?

**Written by Doug Powers I can't believe somebody beat Al Sharpton to discussing the important issue of emoticon diversity, but MSNBC's Ronan Farrow beat him to it: After wondering whether emojis, which originated in Japan, could alter “tech-driven communication across international lines,” Farrow asked McWhorter, “do you think there's a limitation we're suffering from in terms of the racial diversity of these emojis?” The linguist replied in all seriousness, “No, I think that actually what we'r...
