Gene Wilder - RIP

"What did you expect? 'Welcome, sonny'? 'Make yourself at home'? 'Marry my daughter'? You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons." 
-- Jim (Blazing Saddles)

By Gary:

Another great has departed.

It is hard on a person when someone you grew up with passes. As a young man in the 60s and 70s Gene Wilder was perhaps the greatest movie comedian of my generation.

It is hard to meet anyone who does not have favorite scenes from his movies. . . . especially the Mel Brooks films.

I will say that Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory was not on my list. The movie is creepy at best and strangely violent with children. To this day I am not sure what the Hell Wonka is.

The Producers will always hold a special place in my heart. Young Frankenstein is off the wall insanity for any fan of horror. Blazing Saddles is still stunning.

Best of Wilder  -  But for my taste the action-comedy Silver Streak (1976) was my favorite. Great script, fantastic cast and Richard Pryor.

Gene you will be missed.

Ted Cruz Supporters Running Anti-Trump TV Ads

"Conservatives" for Hillary

  • Bottom Line  -  The GOP controls Congress and the borders are wide open, no bill passed to build a wall, no bill to cut even one cent in spending, no flat tax, Obamatrade (TPP) is being held in secret by Congress until after the election, VA hospitals are crap etc etc etc.
  • By promising to actually do something Trump exposes the lie that we have a two party system. We are ruled by one party with two factions that agree with each other on 90% of policy. 

(Politico)  -  Anti-Trump Republicans are preparing to launch a broadcast TV ad in a handful of swing-state suburbs urging Donald Trump to quit the presidential race so the party can replace him with a more electable nominee.

The ad, titled "Keep Your Word," features footage of Trump during the Republican primary in which he suggested he'd drop out if he saw his poll numbers decline.

The 30-second spot is marked for a limited run on broadcast networks in suburban Florida, Virginia, Ohio and Michigan, according to Regina Thomson, a Colorado Republican activist and leader of Free the Delegates, the organization that failed to stop Trump's nomination at last month's national convention. All four states are central to Trump's path to the White House, though he's trailing in most polls of those states.

The ad is backed by a five-figure buy, according to Thomson, but the group hopes to eventually expand its run to Fox News Channel. It's initially set to air on broadcast news channels beginning Tuesday. 

It's marked for the four states' suburban media markets, according to Free the Delegates, because they're areas that typically lean Republican but appear to be tilting in Hillary Clinton's favor this year.

The spot was produced by NOVA Digital Films, a Virginia-based firm that lists a slew of conservative candidates and organizations as clients, including Americans for Prosperity, the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List and former gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli.

The firm also lists the Republican Party of Virginia as a client, but Chairman John Whitbeck told POLITICO Sunday that he has no record of the party doing business with the firm and has requested that it be removed from NOVA Digital's website. NOVA Digital's Greg Letiecq said he'd done work with the party for years (though not as much since Bob McDonnell's 2009 gubernatorial run) and suggested the party's records may have him listed under the name Beehive Sites or under his personal name, rather than under NOVA.

The Trump campaign dismissed the effort as the last remnants of a dying NeverTrump movement.

“The 'Never Trump’ movement died at the Republican Convention after it was revealed that they were nothing more than press releases and Facebook posts. The reality is, Republicans and non-Republican voters alike are rapidly uniting behind Donald Trump’s candidacy as people look for a real change agent who isn’t afraid to break up the rigged system," said Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller.

Clinton: 'Use Muslims to repopulate Detroit'

Black Americans ignored

“Hillary Clinton would rather provide a job to a refugee from overseas than to give that job to unemployed African-American youth in cities like Detroit who have become refugees in their own country.”
Donald Trump

(Breitbart)  -  In a previously little-noticed video from February at the Clinton Global Initiative, former President Bill Clinton suggested that the U.S. use Syrian refugees to rebuild Detroit.
“The truth is that the big loser in this over the long run is going to be Syria. This is an enormous opportunity for Americans,” Bill Clinton said about the Syrian migrant crisis.

Detroit has 10,000 empty, structurally sound houses—10,000. And lot of jobs to be had repairing those houses. Detroit just came out of bankruptcy and the mayor’s trying to do an innovative sort of urban homesteading program there. But it just gives you an example of what could be done. And I think any of us who have ever had any personal experience with either Syrian Americans or Syrian refugees think it’s a pretty good deal.
It is unclear from the video why Clinton seems to think it would be better to fill these Detroit jobs with imported foreign migrants rather than unemployed Americans already living there, who could perhaps benefit from good-paying jobs.
In the video, Clinton discusses the migrant crisis with billionaire and mass migration enthusiast Hamdi Ulukaya of the Chobani yogurt empire.
Ulukaya has become a figure of controversy for his decision to fill his yogurt plants with foreign refugees rather than unemployed Americans. At the World Economic Forum in Davos earlier this year, Ulukaya encouraged other global elites to follow his lead.
The unearthed video seems to underscore Donald Trump’s recent declaration that, “Hillary Clinton would rather provide a job to a refugee from overseas than to give that job to unemployed African-American youth in cities like Detroit who have become refugees in their own country.”

Hot Women of Burning Man - Festival turns 30 years old

Mad Max Meets Hippies

  • Conforming to society has never been high on my list. The people at Burning Man totally represent that streak of American rebellion and individualism.

(London Daily Mail)  -  Burning Man kicked off on Sunday as thousands of revelers made their way into the Nevada Desert for eight days of art and alternative living.

The annual festival, which began in 1986 as a bonfire, takes place in Nevada's Black Rock Desert.

Thirty years after its first incarnation, the event is so populous with tens of thousands of people attending, the dried up lake where the event is held becomes Black Rock City.

Black Rock City is 'a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance', Burning Man's website says. 

On Sunday, hundreds of RVs began rolling into the Black Rock Desert, carrying thousands of revelers to Burning Man.

About 70,000 people attended Burning Man last year. More than 3,200 of them arrived via a temporary airport built especially for the festival, USA Today reported.

No currency is exchanged at Burning Man, with festival goers exchanging goods instead and operating as a ‘gifting society’. Money can only be used to buy ice and coffee.

Facebook censors anti-Clinton video

Taxpayer funded PBS Censors Green Party
You know things are bad when the Leftist Green Party is being censored by the Fascist Clinton Crime Family

(Breitbart)  -  Facebook is censoring a video created by Green candidate Dr. Jill Stein supporter Matt Orfalea that exposes PBS Newshour cutting Stein’s criticism of Hillary Clinton, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and Obamacare.

Breitbart News reported on the Orfalea’s video exposing the Hillary bias and now it appears Facebook is censoring the exposure of censorship. Orfalea told Breitbart News: “It’s insane.”
“My video of PBS censoring Jill Stein has been CENSORED by Facebook!” Orfalea wrote in a Facebook post. “It got over 100k views and over 5k shares in less than 24 hrs…And all of a sudden it has disappeared. I have still received no notification from FB about this.”

Facebook later took its censorship one step further, Orfalea wrote in another post.
“It’s official. Facebook has hidden ALL and ANY video I upload on my Matt Orfalea page,” he said. “Which is separate from this personal account I’m using now. I’m not even able to tag that page anymore.”

Bathroom signs threaten our "safe space", UNC students complain

Safe Spaces For All
Only insane Leftists could turn taking a dump 
into a social justice cause

(Campus Reform)  -  Social justice advocates at the University of North Carolina are outraged over new gender-neutral bathroom signs, saying they prefer the signs put up by students years ago.
Students with UNC’s “Campus Y,” a self-described center for social justice, were ahead of the gender-neutral curve when in 2013 they designated four single-stall restrooms in their on-campus building as being open to all genders.
Now that gender-neutral restrooms are being established throughout campus, however, The Daily Tar Heel reports that Campus Y members are complaining that the school surreptitiously removed their original signage early Wednesday morning, replacing it with university-approved placards that the students consider an insult to their previous efforts.
Specifically, they are upset that the newly-installed signs do not include the transgender pictogram (a combination of the Mars and Venus symbols used to indicate male and female organisms) and merely depict a stationary man, woman, and disabled person.
“It’s really hurtful knowing that the UNC administration—whoever those people are in an office somewhere—could take all that student passion away silently one morning before class,” Campus Y member Kaitlin Harlow told the Tar Heel.
Others went so far as to accuse the administration of openly attacking UNC’s LGBTQ community by replacing the restroom signs.
“Campus Y is a safe place for queer folks on campus, represented in a [sic] signage, so to tear down the signs we’ve made is an attack on this space and what it represents,” declared student Griffin Unger.

Muslim "Savior" To Come From Outer Space

Islam - It Came From Outer Space
I always knew it!

(World Net Daily)  -  A prominent Iranian ayatollah says the Mahdi, the end-times Muslim savior, will come back in a spaceship with the sound “of thunder and its power and speed is that of lightning.”
Actually, his recent explanation wasn’t completely clear.

“It is like a spaceship and like other swift and amazing space vessels that are found [only] in stories today, but nobody knows how close [these vessels] come to truth and reality. Maybe it will be like [a spaceship] but in any case it is not a spaceship,” he said.
His description was discovered in an Iranian news report by the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors and analyzes media reports in the region.
The comments came from Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi, who operates his own website to promote his views.
He was respoinding  to a question about the “arrival of the Mahdi – the Hidden Imam who is the equivalent of the Messiah in Shiite Islam,” MEMRI reported.
“He explained at length how the Mahdi’s arrival will be high-tech, as befits the modern age,” MEMRI said.

He said, “When the Mahdi rules, the pure will have the height of freedom, and the criminals will be monitored – maybe so much so that sound waves will be detected from the walls of their houses, and when necessary it will be possible to understand what they say at home.”
