It’s always satisfying to see race-baiting bureaucrats get their comeuppance in court, but an opinion by the 6th Circuit issued earlier this month begins especially delightfully:

In this case the EEOC sued the defendants for using the same type of background check that the EEOC itself uses. The EEOC’s personnel handbook recites that “[o]verdue just debts increase temptation to commit illegal or unethical acts as a means of gaining funds to meet financial obligations.” Because of that concern, the EEOC runs credit checks on applicants for 84 of the agency’s 97 positions. The defendants (collectively, “Kaplan”) have the same concern; and thus Kaplan runs credit checks on applicants for positions that provide access to students’ financial-loan information, among other positions. For that practice, the EEOC sued Kaplan.

The April 9 ruling in Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Kaplan Higher Education Corp. has received little fanfare. It should probably receive more, though, if only because the EEOC lost so good and hard.

Sen. Flake agrees with Jeb Bush: Illegal immigration is an ‘act of love’

Sen. Flake agrees with Jeb Bush: Illegal immigration is an 'act of love'

A battle line within the GOP is drawn a bit more sharply, as Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ), a member of the “Gang of Eight” immigration reform group, declared on Facebook that he agreed with former Florida governor and possible presidential contender Jeb Bush’s description of illegally crossing the United States border as an “act of love”:

A few weeks ago, Jeb Bush made a statement that has garnered a great deal of attention. He noted that for some illegal immigrants, crossing the border could be considered an “act of love” because it was motivated by a desire to feed and care for their families.

I’ve been asked what I think of this statement. Truth is, I agree with Jeb, and I applaud him for having the guts to say it. Growing up here in Arizona, I’ve seen what motivates those who come here illegally. Sure, some come with the intent to do harm or simply to take advantage of our generosity. But many come to find work to feed their families. To lump everyone who crosses the border illegally into the same class is unfair and unproductive.

Boston Marathon Begins Under Tight Security

boston-marathon

The 118th running of the Boston Marathon began under heavy security Monday morning, a year after the bombings near the race’s finish line that killed three people and wounded more than 260 others.

A moment of silence was observed and “America the Beautiful” was played over a loudspeaker before the race began for mobility-impaired marathoners. The elite men and women runners were starting later in the morning.

Despite heightened security, the mood was festive at the finish line on Boylston Street. Spontaneous applause broke out as a group of Boston police officers walked near the site of last year’s twin bombing and children danced as the Rolling Stones’ song “Start Me Up” blared over the loudspeakers.

Princeton study concludes: US is an oligarchy, not a democracy

April 18, 2014 at 20:44

http://themindunleashed.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/oligarchy.jpg
In a recent report from the academic journal Perspectives on Politics, the United States is not a democracy, but is instead, an oligarchy. For those who aren’t up with fancy words, this means that the US government is very, very corrupt.

The news: new scientific study from Princeton researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page has finally put some science behind the recently popular argument that the United States isn’t a democracy any more. And they’ve found that in fact, America is basically an oligarchy.

An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their status called oligarchs. Members of the oligarchy are the rich, the well connected and the politically powerful, as well as particularly well placed individuals in institutions like banking and finance or the military.

What’s the Story Behind This Mysterious American Jet Spotted in Iran?

[TheBlaze.com]

And Who’s the ‘VIP’ Passenger?

A private jet bearing the American flag was spotted this week at an airport in Tehran, an oddity considering the fact that the U.S. is not currently doing business with Iran.

The plane, which was seen Tuesday at Mehrabad International Airport in Tehran, according to the New York Times, is owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that operates 13 branches across the state.

[Stuck on STUPID]: CNN National Security Analyst: Right More Deadly Than Al Qaeda

[Breitbart.com]

15 April 2014


Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left’s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists.

In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda’s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the United States for political reasons since 9/11. (The total includes the latest shootings in Kansas, which are being classified as a hate crime).

BUNKERVILLE, Nevada (Reuters) – A show of force was necessary to stop the government seizure and sale of embattled cattle rancher Cliven Bundy’s cows, his son said on Sunday, a day after an armed standoff between federal agents and hundreds of Bundy’s supporters.

“We were dedicated to opening those gates and peacefully walking through to retrieve those cattle,” Ammon Bundy said in an interview. “The presence of weapons was needed in order to intimidate them.”

White House-Directed Change In Census Survey Guarantees Skewed Obamacare Data

[Personal Liberty Digest]

April 16, 2014 by

obama-cash-laughThe Census Bureau has been directed to change the wording of questions concerning Americans’ health coverage so that it will be impossible to compare the answers with those provided by takers of the bureau’s interim annual surveys in previous years.

First reported Tuesday in The New York Times, the change drew criticism not only from conservatives — who have smelled some kind of agenda-driven motive from the Administration of President Barack Obama ever since oversight of the Census Bureau was taken out from under the Commerce Department and placed under the control of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel — but also from mainstream media, including Times reporter Josh Barro:

Conservative lawmakers are plotting to dump House Speaker John Boehner as soon as November, the National Journal reported Thursday.

The National Journal said 40 to 50 House conservatives are behind a scheme to infiltrate the GOP leadership in 2015, and pushing the Ohio Republican aside would be the first step.

The conservative disapproval with Boehner has been widely reported.
