People Who Don’t ‘Get’ Trump Don’t Understand New Yorker’s

Virginia Right

New Yorkers are different than most people. And I don’t mean that in a bad way. It is just a fact that I have learned over the years. Having spent much of my life traveling for a living and being a person that loves to observe and (hopefully) understand, or at least learn about people I cross paths with in my travels has given me a different perspective on people than most who have not traveled as extensively as I. For most of the 90’s and up until 9/11 I accrued about 500,000 Frequent Flyer Miles a year. I spent an exhausting amount of time in airports, hotels and in rental cars. And going back to the 70’s I traveled the country and the world for my job. And New York was a very frequent stop for me.

Most people from the South simply see New Yorkers as rude, arrogant, loud and a number of descriptive terms that are less polite. But what I have found is that this is simply a veneer, a front they put on with strangers. It is probably some sort of psychological coping mechanism that helps them deal with life in The City. And to be clear here, I am talking about people from New York City. Not “Upstate” or other areas of the State of New York. Outside of The City, if you go far enough away, New Yorkers are not much different than Virginians or anyone else.

But the people who live and work in New York City are a different breed. On the surface….

Our Weasel Of The Week!

golden weasel

Yes, once again, It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were particularly slimy and despicable, but the votes are in and we have our winner…the envelope please…

Raciali$t Organizer and Cop Hater Carol (Sunshine) Sullivan!

 Puma By Design : My nominee for Weasel of the Week goes to Carol (Sunshine) Sullivan, an organizer of F***YoFlag, #FYF911 and #BlackLivesMatter movements.

Less than 24 hours before Bryce Williams aka Vesper Lee Flanagan II shot and killed two WBDJ journalists, Alison Parker and Adam Ward on the air Black activist Carol (Sunshine) Sullivan, an organizer of F***YoFlag on her radio blog show hosted from Texas called, “Sunshine’s F***ing Opinion Radio Show” allegedly gave members of #FYF911 or #FukYoFlag and #BlackLivesMatter a platform from which the hate/terrorist organizations called for the lynching of white people and law enforcement officers.

Two days after Parker and Ward were killed, Shannon J. Miles, a Black male pumped fifteen bullets into Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth at a gas station in Houston, Texas.

The killings are reminiscent of the shootings of two NYPD officers one week after Al Sharpton and Marxists paraded through the streets of New York City chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now.”

ALL were executions and all occurred after Marxists made the call.

Vesper Lee Flanagan stole two young innocent lives because they were Caucasians and because he felt entitled to that which he did not earn.

Black activists terrorists espousing hate and calling for the blood of “whitey” was more than enough for Flanagan’s diseased troubled mind to rationalize that killing Parker and Ward was only one way to remedy the situation.

While Sullivan and fellow activists terrorist leaders did not pull the triggers themselves, they have planted seeds of hate and violence influencing weak minds the result of which is bloodshed on the streets of America and the death of the innocent.

My biggest fear is that these terrorists are just getting warmed up.

I think it’s pretty evident that they’re just getting warmed up, at least when it comes to the police killings that have occurred lately. Actually, I think what amounts to a black on white race war has been going on for some time, to the despair of many Americans of all races. It’s just more out in the open now, and has graduated to murdering police rather than rapes,the knock out game, and flash mobs assembled via twitter and Facebook.

What people like Carol Sullivan and others see is a sympathetic president who has never failed to comment and intervene when it comes to supposed black victims like Michael Brown and Treyvon Martin being totally silent when it comes to black on white crime and what amounts to executions of police.

That’s not an accident, either. There’s a reason Obama intimates are involved, Al Sharpton doing the cheerleading and agitating and George Soros funding #Black lives matter and the Ferguson rioters. The Left revels in chaos and destruction, because it is a useful tactic for establishing totalitarianism.

Our Weasel ‘Sunshine’ is just a well-paid foot soldier of the regime. This week’s statuette of shame was carefully spray painted black, so as not to upset her racialist sympathies. Congrats, ‘Sunshine’,  for bringing more darkness into the world.


Well, there it is.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum, and remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

Escalation of Religious Persecution in USA; Judge Orders Incarceration of Kentucky Clerk

BE FUNKY screenshot kentucky marriage clerk kim davis


Religious persecution in the United States has just escalated to a whole new level as a U. S. District Judge David Bunning issued an order to incarcerate Kentucky County Clerk, Kim Davis Rowan, until Rowan agrees to comply with his order to issue marriage licenses to for all couples.

During her 20-minute testimony, Davis informed the court that “You can’t be separated from something that’s in your heart and in your soul…My conscience will not allow it. God’s moral law convicts me and conflicts with my duties.”

The ACLU wanted the judge to fine Davis but since various organizations are fundraising on Davis’ behalf and Davis made it clear the fine wouldn’t change anything,” Bunning decided that fines were not enough to force Davis into compliance.

Courier – Journal

“Her good-faith belief is simply not a viable defense,” he said. “Oaths mean things.”

Bunning said society relies virtually every day on people complying with court orders and that to allow otherwise would create a slippery slope.

The court “cannot condone willful disobedience,” he said. “If you give people opportunity to choose what orders they follow, that is what potentially causes problems.”

Davis, who was tearful at times, testified that she could not obey the order, and that God’s law trumps the court….

Davis’ attorney, Mac Staver’s response to his client’s incarceration is shock, “This wasn’t even what was part of the original request from the plaintiffs in this case…The judge went way beyond…. Kim Davis might be jailed for her conscience, but her conscience is free.”

Bunning has ordered the Deputy Clerk to court this afternoon where they will have to inform the court of their intent to comply or not with his earlier ruling to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

The gay mafia with the mainstream media in tow ambushed Davis at her workplace the other day. You can see the video here.

Bunning’s order has escalated religious persecution in the United States, which has been steady rising the past several years to a completely new level.

Lastly, how would the federal government handle a Muslim refusing to issue marriage licenses for gay couples?

Would that individual be persecuted and incarcerated by the federal government? I doubt it very much.

Center for Medical Progress

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 1–The ninth video in the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal focuses on Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR), the small and secretive company that has harvested and sold fetal body parts at Planned Parenthood clinics longer than any other entity:

The video features undercover conversations with Dr. Katharine Sheehan, the long-time medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest until 2013; Perrin Larton, the Procurement Manager for ABR; and Cate Dyer, the CEO of rival fetal tissue procurement company StemExpress.

Sheehan tells actors posing as a new human biologics company that at Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest, “We have already a relationship with ABR.” Sheehan explains, “We’ve been using them for over 10 years, really a long time, just kind of renegotiated the contract. They’re doing the big collections for government-level collections and things like that.” When one of the actors negotiates, “We return a portion of our fees to the clinics,” Sheehan responds eagerly, “Right, get a toe in and make it, make a pro–alright….

In this particular video, Perrin Larton, Procurement Manager of Advance Bioscience Resources discusses legislation passed under George H.W. Bush, the language of said legislation which enabled Planned Parenthood and biotech organizations to skirt the law, condition of the fetal tissu, and the difference in fetal tissue when labor has and has not been induced.

As for women who have had multiple babies, the baby just falls out intact.

“The whole point is not to have a live birth…Unless it’s somebody who has had 6 pregnancies and 6 vaginal deliveries…they put lams in and she comes in the next morning and I literally have had women come in and they’ll go in the OR, and they’re back out in 3 minutes…the fetus is already in the vaginal canal. Whenver we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out.”

All in a day’s work for Planned Parenthood. They have murder down to a science.




Rahm Emanuel to propose massive property tax increase.

BE FUNKY screenshotrahmemanuel

Chicago Tribune By Hal Dardick and Bill Ruthhart

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is set to call for the largest property tax increase in modern Chicago history to raise enough money to make a major pension payment for police and firefighters next year, the mayor’s City Council floor leader and a City Hall source told the Chicago Tribune late Wednesday.

The mayor also plans to push a new garbage collection tax, a new per-ride fee on taxis and ride-hailing services such as Uber and a new tax on electronic cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products….

Continue Reading

Emanuel wants a tax hike of somewhere between $450 million and $550 million to pay for police and fire pensions and another $50 million for a Chicago Public Schools construction program.

In other words, as long as Emanuel appeases big labor, who cares about the burden of these tax increases on the middle class.




Education is a Religion and Marc Tucker Speaks. What’s Going on in Utah?


, , , , , , , , ,


Grumpy Opinion by stlgretchen (Co-editor of Missouri Education Watchdog)

A technology evangelist is a person who builds a critical mass of support for a given technology, and then establishes it as a technical standard in a market that is subject to network effects.[1] An evangelist promotes the use of a particular product or technology through talks, articles, blogging, user demonstrations, recorded demonstrations, or the creation of sample projects. The word evangelism is taken from the context of religious evangelism due to the similarity of relaying information about a particular set of beliefs with the intention of converting the recipient.


As with traditional religious evangelists, these technology evangelists possess similar fervor and strive to convince others that their products and services are the way to educational salvation. There are several types of technology evangelists who hawk their message to increase the use of their products or services:

Target areas

Platform evangelism is one target of technology evangelism, in which the vendor of a two-sided platformattempts to accelerate the production of complementary goods by independent developers. (e.g.,Facebook encourages developers to create games or develop mobile apps that can enhance users’ experiences with Facebook.)

Professional technology evangelists are often employed by firms seeking to establish their technologies as de facto standards.

Open-source evangelists operate independently. Evangelists also participate in defining open standards. Non-professional technology evangelists may act out of altruism or self-interest (e.g., to gain the benefits of early adoption or network effect).

History of term

The term “software evangelist” was coined by Mike Murray of Apple Computer‘s Macintosh computerdivision.[2] The first so-identified technology evangelist was Mike Boich — who promoted the Macintosh computer.[3] The job is often closely related to both sales and training, but requires specific technology marketing skills. For example, convincing a potential buyer or user to change from older methods to new ones. Technology evangelism is sometimes associated with an internal employee assigned to encourage new practices within an organization. The marketing aspect of the role was strongly influenced by Geoffrey Moore and his books concerning the technology adoption lifecycle.

Notable technology evangelists

Notable technology evangelists[citation needed] in the commercial arena include Steve Jobs (Apple Inc.), Vint Cerf (Google), Don Box, Guy Kawasaki, Alex St. John, Myriam Joire (Pebble), Dan Martin (MasterCard). Court records[4][5] indicate that James Plamondon was a leading theorist, strategist, and practitioner of technology evangelism at Microsoft during its establishment of Microsoft Windows as the de factostandard PC operating system.


Casap is a featured speaker at the Joint Commission of Education in Utah which began today. You can find the agenda here and access live streaming of the two day conference. It’s a presentation affirming the need and strategies for competency based education with these speakers and topics (excerpted from the first day’s agenda)

Arby’s Apologizes to Police after Clerk Refused to Serve Officer


, ,

screenshot arby's pembroke pines florida

The CEO of Arby’s reached out to Pembroke Pines police yesterday to issue an apology following a 19-year-old employee’s refusal to serve a uniformed police officer Tuesday night.

Pembroke Mall Arby's Clerk Kenneth Davenport refused to serve Sgt Jennifer Martin

Arby’s employee, Kenneth Davenport (left) accused of refusing to serve Sgt. Jennifer Martin, Pembroke Pines Police (right).

According to the offense report, Sgt. Jennifer Martin ordered take-out using the drive thru at an Arby’s located in the Pembroke Lakes Mall whereupon placing her order, the clerk at the drive-thru window “seemed slightly rude and short with his responses.”

Not thinking much about it, Sgt. Martin chalked it up to a faulty speaker system.

After driving around to the window, the clerk, Kenneth Davenport, took the officer’s credit card after which his superior, Angel Maribal approached the window and informed Sgt. Martin that “He [Davenport] doesn’t want to serve you because you are a police officer.”

Davenport refused to process the officer’s credit card.

See excerpt of offense report below:

Screenshot offense report - Arby's emloyee refuses to serve Florida police officer pg 1


Pembroke Pines Police Chief Dan Giustino issuing a media release said, “I am offended and appalled that an individual within our community would treat a police officer in such a manner. It is unacceptable, and I will be contacting the Arby’s CEO to demand an apology.”

WSVN: “Jeff Marano from the Police Benevolent Association also joined the conversation with comments of concern. ‘This is inexcusable behavior for an employee in an establishment to be treating a uniformed police officer or anybody in the public like that,’ said Marano….

The incident sparked outrage across social media with calls for law enforcement and family members to boycott Arby’s nationwide.

Giustino contacted Arby’s which was promptly followed up by a response from Arby’s CEO, Paul Brown, and Senior Vice President of Operations Scott Boatwright, who issued an apology on behalf of the restaurant chain.

Arby’s issued the following statement, which I am sure, is elsewhere besides this little blurb on their Facebook page (screenshot below).

Screenshot Arby's response to clerk refusing to serve uniformed police officer 09022015

“We take this isolated matter very seriously as we respect and support police officers in our local communities. As soon as the issue was brought to our attention, our CEO spoke with the Police Chief who expressed his gratitude for our quick action and indicates the case is closed. We will be following up with our team members to be sure that our policy of inclusion is understood and adhered to.”

The clerk, Davenport, claims that the incident was “blown way out of proportion.”


Thomas McCutcheon, Davenport’s grandfather, said he’s taught his grandson to be respectful and said the incident was a misunderstanding that he hopes gets cleared up.

Davenport’s account, according to his grandfather, was that he became overwhelmed while taking drive-thru orders and asked his manager to help him. Davenport did not have a view of the intercom and surrounding area and did not know Martin was a police officer as she placed her order, his grandfather said.

As Mirabal assisted Davenport, Mirabal told the officer that Davenport did not want to serve her because she was an officer. Davenport told his grandfather that Mirabal meant it as a compliment to the female officer, indicating it was instead his pleasure to serve her….

Read full article

According to the grandfather, Davenport meant it “jokingly.”

“Jokingly” like “pigs in a blanket….”????

“Somebody made a joke and she just didn’t take it the right way.” Davenport and his grandfather just laid the blame for the whole incident at the feet of Sgt. Martin…and race even though the officer he refused service and his manager are Hispanic.  Moreover, a not so veiled threat to Arby’s and Pembroke Pines Police informing them that any actions taken against the clerk would be considered racist followed by a lawsuit for discrimination.

Of course, it was Sgt. Martin who was discriminated against because she is a police officer.

Finally, Arby’s manager did not show up for work the next day. Expect him to change his story.

Manhunt Underway for Suspects in Killing of Fox Lake, IL Police Officer (UPDATE 2)


, , , ,

UPDATE 2: Police One reported about 30 minutes ago on their website and Facebook page that a suspect was in custody but that report has since been rescinded.  Officer Gliniewicz is the fourth officer shot and killed in the past nine days

Lieutenant Charles Joseph Gliniewicz

Lieutenant Charles Joseph Gliniewicz

UPDATE 1: Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, Lieutenant is the name of the police officer killed this morning in Lake County, Illinois. Gliniewicz was married and the father of four sons. The 32-year veteran of the force went by the nickname, “G.I. Joe.” Source: Chicago Tribune.

Fox Lake Police Officer Charles Joseph Gliniewicz killed in  the line of duty 09012015 002



It happened again. Another police officer killed this morning, this time in Lake County, Illinois and as expected, law enforcement is out en masse, in camouflage carrying high-powered firearms, helicopters flying overhead in search of three male suspects, one Black, two Caucasian. In addition, several canine units have also been dispatched.

As reported by the Chicago Tribune, the name of the deceased officer has not yet been released to the public.

Shortly before the officer was killed, he radioed in that he was checking out suspicious activity. A moment later (around 8 a.m.), the officer radioed in once more, stating that he was in pursuit. It was at this point that contact was lost.

… The officer was discovered in a marshy area, stripped of his gun and other gear, according to Lake County Undersheriff Raymond Rose. He died at the scene, the undersheriff said…. With the help of U.S. marshals, teams of police from throughout the county were searching woods and businesses throughout the area….

The areas of the manhunt including schools are on lockdown.

What we do know about the officer is that he has children.







Hillary Received Plan to Impeach Clarence Thomas

Weekly Standard

Hillary Clinton’s recently released emails includes a memo sent by David Brock titled, “Memo on Impeaching Clarence Thomas.”

The purpose of the document might suggest Clinton, or at least those closest to her and in her circle, are interested in impeaching Justice Thomas.

The document contains information from Brock about his book, The Real Anita Hill, and other similar points on Justice Thomas’s personal life.

The document contains details of Brock himself potentially intimidating women close to Justice Thomas. These details were from a 2001 New York Times article, in which the author reached out to a colleague of Thomas, Kaye Savage…’

What are the odds that if elected, Hillary Clinton will going after Clarence Thomas?????

Impeaching Thomas would mean one less Conservative judge in the Supreme Court. Say that they are clearing Hill’s name in the name of justice and besides, it is for the greater good. Greater good being tilting the balance of power that is already questionable in the Supreme Court even further left for decades to come.

Outrage Ensues after Auschwitz Installs Misting Showers Reminiscent of Gas Chambers


, , ,

screenshot misting showers placed at opening of auschwitz image Facebook


You would think that at the site of an infamous concentration camp, certain things would be easily recognized as not-very-good ideas. This is one of them.

Misting showers have reportedly been installed around the entrance to Auschwitz in order to provide relief to tourists visiting the camp-turned-museum. The Nazis used gas chambers disguised as showers to kill millions of prisoners during WWII, so for obvious reasons, tourists were shocked by the insensitivity of the idea….

Read full article




How did the museum not see this coming and what did they have to say for themselves? Below is an excerpt of what I consider a not so sympathetic statement from a representative of the Auschwitz Memorial:

…Among visitors there are many people who come from countries where such high temperatures as we have this summer in Poland do not occur. Something had to be done, as we have noticed cases of faints among people and other dangerous situations. Therefore we had to do everything we could to minimise the risks connected with the heat and high temperatures. The safety and health of visitors are our priority during the period of extreme heat. Cooling air have been really helpful to visitors in this difficult situation.

And one more thing. It is really hard for us to comment on some suggested historical references since the mist sprinkles do not look like showers and the fake showers installed by Germans inside some of the gas chambers were not used to deliver gas into them. Zyklon B was dropped inside the gas chambers in a completely different way – through holes in the ceiling or airtight drops in walls….


Like everything else these days, it’s all about profits.
