DC Appeals Court approves voting by illegal immigrants
A little over a week ago, I wrote about a proposal by Obama and Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson, to nationalize our elections, effectively seizing control from the states which is contrary to the Constitution. Like much of the rest of Obama’s “fundamental transformation” agenda, federal control of elections is a popular idea in other branches of government, such as the judicial branch.

Kaine: Pretty sure the Catholic Church will accept the progressive gospel on same-sex marriage
Repent, secular heretic, and embrace the revelation du jour! Over the weekend, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine spoke at a Human Rights Watch event, extolling the virtues of his running mate on LGBTQ rights and dismissing Donald Trump’s claims to championing their interests. Kaine took a detour from that mission, though, to offer a campaign promise unlike anything ever seen. Kaine, a Catholic, noted that his unconditional support for same-sex marriage puts him at odds with his church, but predicted that the Vatican would adopt the progressive gospel in the future.

Hmmm: Blue California wants to keep its death penalty, 52/36
California voters, among the most reliably liberal in the nation, have an opportunity to pass a repeal of the death penalty in November. Proposition 62 would commute the sentence of those on California’s Death Row to life without parole and require a higher percentage of inmate income to go to victim restitution. With opposition to the death penalty a big progressive goal, and with California’s execution process among the slowest and most frustrating in the nation, one would expect overwhelming support for Proposition 62.

Gonzales has a lengthy criminal history – including charges of domestic violence – and was on probation at the time of the murder. Kelley, who had previously been convicted as accessory in another woman’s rape, had just been released from prison days before the girl was murdered.
Daily Show Host Begins Rehabilitation of Adolf Hitler
What’s so bad about Adolf Hitler? After all, he was a socialist, who made sure no one in the private sector could either succeed or fail except within parameters determined by the government, thus guarding against inequality. He provided many “free” government services. He protected his people against the potentially dangerous liberties that Americans enshrined in the First and Second Amendments. Just as the Founding Fathers are becoming villains to be eradicated, maybe it’s time for moonbats to rehabilitate Hitler.

If You’re Still Wiping Your 12-Year-Old’s Butt I’m Blaming You for the End of Western Civilization
I can’t even. I don’t want to be one of those “parenting experts” who claim to know everything (because I don’t) and tell other mothers what to do (that’s obnoxious), but I’m going to go ahead and do it anyway. If you have a twelve-year-old who will not wipe his own bottom, you’re doing it very, very wrong. I will even go as far as to say if you have a 6-year-old who is not wiping his own bum, you should hand in your parenting card and consider putting your kid up for adoption to people who will not allow this to continue. This is why Rome crumbled. Romulus Augustulus was sitting on a marble toilet shouting for someone to wipe his magnificus dolium because he couldn’t spare his thumbs (which were too busy playing Farmville on his iPhone) when a dirty barbarian rushed in and lopped off his head. This is where we are headed, people.
