  • Single ISIS terrorist found 5,000 miles away, but Feds cannot find millions of illegals in USA

    So watching the news today, the American media is DROOLING with fake delight over the killing of the terrorist Jihadi John.....with a subtext that military prowess was able to target the bad guy. Two thoughts came to mind: 1. This administration can somehow make it a priority to target some British sleaze in the middle east, but REFUSES to find murderous illegal aliens in our own borders. 2. This administration ALSO tries to lecture Israel whenever that nation targets those who kill her citizens.

    It was a rough night on the campus of the University of Missouri, thanks in large part to Student Body President Payton Head. Head posted on Facebook earlier in the night that the KKK was confirmed on campus and that he was working with “the MUPD, the state trooper and the National Guard.” The only problem with that terrifying statement is it wasn’t true and Head was forced to delete the post and apologize: Head then directed students to follow @MUalert — “The online emergency information center for the University of Missouri” — as the “ONLY account with confirmed information”:

    “Workers of all lands unite,” reads the marble engraving atop Karl Marx’s grave in London. But if said workers were to congregate at the tomb of their advocate, they’d have to part with some of their capital: It costs about $6 to enter the portion of Highgate Cemetery where he lies. Some modern-day admirers of Marx who want to abolish private property are understandably upset that it’s not free to get in. “There are no depths of irony, or bad taste, to which capitalists won’t sink if they think they can make money out of it,” whined one 24-year-old Marxist...

    Since his first run for the Presidency, Obama has claimed to be a Christian even though he was schooled in a Madrassa in Indonesia. He also claimed he was an immigrant to get into college and was a member of Rev. Wright’s church for many years. There he heard that America needed to be brought down and that our “chickens have come home to roost.” As groveling, pro-Obama boot-lickers, the media would never let us know the truth underlying the personal history Barack immediately locked away upon being placed in the White House. Of course we can be certain that...

"Senior staffers in the state's oil and gas regulatory agency over at least two days produced a 51-page historical report and geological assessment, plus a personalized satellite-imaged geological and oil and gas drilling map for the area around Brown's family ranchland near the town of Williams," the AP reported. Brown's office declined to comment, referring the AP instead to the California Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources, which...

    If we’ve learned anything here in America in the last few months, it is this: When your religious faith comes in conflict with your job, if you are a Muslim, your faith is protected and sacred; if you are a Christian, it is not. We all know what happened to Christian bakers, florists, photographers, and county clerks who refused to participate in same-sex “marriages” because of their religious faith. They were found guilty by the courts and fined or punished or even imprisoned. And we know where the Obama administration stood on these issues, to the point that last year,...

The conduct of CNBC and its panel of inquisitors – is that you? Is that what has become of American journalism? Because those weren’t reporters, they were insolent idiots. Self-important crusaders engaged in a condescending and partisan attack on people they have dehumanized through their evident disgust.

Tickets for the event sold for a minimum of $250. Those who spent the maximum, $2,700, or who raised $10,000,...

Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) was grilled by Fusion's Jorge Ramos on the lack of diversity on the debate stage. Wasserman Schultz said electing and then re-electing a black president shows the diversity in the party. "When I was watching the debate what I was thinking was the Democratic Party lacked diversity. I didn't see a Latino, or an African-American, or an Asian on that stage," Ramos observed. "Well, we have Latinos and African-Americans," Wasserman Schultz boasted.

    ED. NOTE: As this article is posted, Pope Francis begins his visit to the United States. In his encyclical released in June of this year, the pope singled out air conditioning as being a "harmful habit" that is a symbol of rampant capitalism that is blind to the plight of the poor and disadvantaged. These comments by Matt Michel, CEO of Service Roundtable, serve as a timely response. Since becoming pontiff, Pope Francis has repeatedly made the news for his criticism and condemnation of capitalism and free markets. Worse, in his encyclical, he singled out air conditioning as particularly...

    Jumping into the issues of the day, Pope Francis opened his visit to the United States with a strong call Wednesday for action to combat climate change, calling it a problem that can no longer be left to a future generation. President Barack Obama, in turn, hailed the pontiff as a moral force who is shaking us out of our complacency with reminders to care for the poor and the planet. The White House mustered all the pageantry it had to offer as the pope arrived at the White House before an adoring crowd of thousands and a nation that...

    I've been a Roman Catholic since 1954. I have great respect for Pope Francis. When it comes to matters of faith and morals, what he says, goes. But when it comes to politics and economics, the pope is about as far from infallible as anyone can get. For example, he was in Cuba earlier this week, meeting informally with Fidel Castro and touring the island to say Masses and meet with priests. Apparently the pope was having such a good time he forgot that for more than half a century Cuba has been a rotten communist prison camp and his...

    In a 3,404-word address, he used only 75 words on the two topics. Pope Francis touched on many topics in his speech to Congress, but conservatives may have expected him to say more about abortion and same-sex marriage. During his historic speech at a joint meeting of Congress on Thursday, Pope Francis hit upon a variety of issues that have defined the Catholic church: protecting the environment, helping the poor, addressing the plight of immigrants, abolishing the death penalty and taking a stand against the proliferation of the weapons trade, to name a few. Yet, while the pope had strong...

    While delivering the first address from a pontiff to a joint meeting of Congress on Thursday, Pope Francis touched on topics ranging from the plight of immigrants to climate change and the death penalty. Many of his comments were lightly delivered and unlikely to elicit much controversy, though the reaction might be different if they were given by another world leader. Case in point: Toward the beginning of his address, Francis alluded to religious extremism, noting that "no religion is immune" from it. His full quote as prepared for delivery: "Our world is increasingly a place of violent conflict, hatred...

    Believe it or not, the one line he devoted to abortion was one line more than he devoted to the subject of Jesus, who wasn’t mentioned at all in this morning’s speech according to the transcript. Maybe that was a deliberate choice made by Francis, to stick to politics and universal principles before a domestic television audience with many millions of non-Christians. (He did mention Moses.) Or maybe he just had more important things that he wanted to talk about, like the environment.This is exactly right: The Holy Father's politics, as w/his predecessors, defy easy right-left categorization.

Hes expected to raise topics that many Americans will find challenging, such as his harsh critique of capitalism.

Corporations reward shareholders and top executives at the expense of investment and employees. The decimation of unions has left workers powerless to demand their share of the revenue they produce.

    The New York Times published an article about mostly White dotcommers moving into a Hispanic neighborhood of San Francisco called the Mission District. But nowhere in this article did the Times ever use the word "diversity." This is puzzling, because in every other article where they talk about adding more Blacks or Hispanics to a white population, they always celebrate that as the merits of diversity. But not this time

    Im hearing from a lot of customers, I voted for that, and I didnt realize it would affect you. So says Brian Hibbs, owner and operator of Comix Experience, an iconic comic-book and graphic-novel shop on San Franciscos Divisadero Street, of the citys new minimum-wage law. San Franciscos Proposition J, which 77 percent of voters approved in November, will raise the minimum wage in the city to $15 by 2018. As of today, May 1, Hibbs is required by law to pay his employees at Comix Experience, and its sister store, Comix Experience Outpost on Ocean Avenue, $12.25 per hour....

    San Francisco is getting ready to raise its minimum wage to $12.25 an hour, a rate that will have the city joining Oakland as the locales with the nation's highest legally mandated pay for non-salaried workers. San Francisco's new minimum is set to go into effect on Friday. It was approved by voters as part of an initiative that will increase the minimum wage to $15 in 2018. The National Employment Law Project estimates that 142,000 workers will receive the higher wages.
  • San Francisco Poised to be "Whitest County" in Bay Area By 2040: Study

    NBC Bay Area ^ | 4/23 | Tamara Palmer
    A study of the Bay Area region finds that San Francisco is becoming less diverse as surrounding counties increase multicultural populations. CityLab noted the study's starkest findings in the PolicyLink study: San Francisco is predicted to be the "whitest county" in the Bay Area by the year 2040. San Francisco is the only county in the Bay Area that is becoming less diverse; surrounding counties are becoming more diverse as soaring rent prices continue to drive people into other cities and towns. "It's startling because the city's diversity and identity as a progressive, inclusive city is seriously at-risk," Sarah Treuhaft,...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | April 23, 2015 | By Emily Landes
    Chinese buyers looking to invest off-shore are most interested in San Francisco, according to a report from luxury listing site, which tracked millions of online searches from Chinese buyers in the first quarter of 2015. San Francisco ranked seventh in the survey in the fourth quarter of last year, but in the most recent survey beat out London, Tuscany, New York and Paris. For many well-heeled Chinese buyers, the entire U.S. housing market, and even the somewhat pricey S.F. Bay Area remains a bargain versus Hong Kong, New York, London and Beijing, he said. Bay Area real estate represents an...

    A new report shows a shameful truth for our city: San Francisco's schools are segregated. The San Francisco Public Press, a local nonprofit newspaper, reported that out of San Francisco Unified School District's 115 schools, six in 10 have simple majorities of one racial group. Alarmingly, a quarter of district schools have 60 percent or more students of one racial group. The report notes how black students in The City attend mostly black schools, white children attend mostly white schools and so on.

    A new report from Zillow shows that rents across the U.S. are increasing, and not just in the expected regions of New York City, San Francisco and Boston. Overall, rents increased 3.3% year-over-year as of January. But many cities outpaced that, including Kansas City, which saw rent grow more than double the national average, jumping 8.5% year-over-year. St. Louis saw rent increase by 4.5% over the same period. Rents in Detroit grew by 5.0% and rents in Cleveland grew by 4.2%. Nationwide, rental appreciation is still below its peak - 6.3% hit in September 2012 after the housing bust. According...

    How far will the government go to infringe on your rights? In San Francisco, residents arent even allowed to store their own belongings in their home. Residents of the liberal city are banned from using their garage to store any personal property other than a vehicle. Chapter Six of the San Francisco Housing Code states, Private and public storage garages in apartment houses and hotels shall be used only for storage of automobiles. Those who violate the law can be slapped with a $500 fine.
  • Bay Area buyers frustrated by tight supply of homes for sale

    In one of the most agonizing disconnects of the Bay Area's surging economy, far more people want to buy a home than want to sell one, making this the tightest housing market in the nation. Would-be homebuyers are crowding into scarce open houses and battling for the few available, leading to rising prices, rapid sales -- many homes sell within a week -- and frustrated house hunters. "This is the most sustained period of low inventory I've seen in 20 to 24 years," said Chris Trapani, head of the Sereno Group in Silicon Valley.
