BLUE STATE UTOPIA: Illinois enters fourth month without a budget; standoff could mean lights out at Capitol

In the unfolding -- and somewhat hilarious Blue-on-Blue war between the Democrat-Union Axis and the people of Illinois who unfailingly elect them -- the nation's most broke-ass state is going on its fourth month without a budget.

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White warned the governor this week that the ongoing budget standoff would cause major problems at government facilities statewide, "including the possibility that the electricity could be shut off at the Capitol".

Please consider: "Illinois' budget standoff could mean lights out at Capitol" (the article itself disappeared from the IUSB website, so the link goes to the cached version):

Fifty years ago today, Ted Kennedy began changing the face of the United States by ushering the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act through Congress. That legislation resulted in the fundamental transformation of the demographic, economic, social, and political landscape of nation, exactly the opposite of what its supporters promised.

The Kennedy immigration law abolished the national origins quota system, which had favored immigrants from nations with a similar heritage to our own, and opened up American immigration visas to the entire world.

While about nine in ten of the immigrants who came to the United States during the 19th and 20th century hailed from Europe, the 1965 law inverted that figure. Today about 9 out of every 10 new immigrants brought into the country on green cards come from Latin America, Africa, Asia or the Middle East.

The size of the numbers also grew exponentially as well. According to Pew Research Center, 59 million immigrants entered the United States following the Act’s passage. Including their children, that added 72 million new residents to the U.S. population.

In 1965, according to Pew, the country was 84 percent white, 11 percent black, 4 percent Hispanic and less than 1 percent Asian.

ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK: GOPe in panic mode as Kasich support evaporates and Jeb! numbers drop below IQ of Biden

The Beltway Establishment's secretive plan to hand Jeb Bush the GOP nomination by flooding the zone with candidates (also known as the "GOPe Splitter Strategy") has totally unravelled.

Let's start in New Hampshire, where support for John Kasich has fallen off the cliff:

QOTD: "In 1999, at the height of the Lewinsky scandal, Hillary again assaulted the president. Stone cites Christopher Andersen’s account:

“Much of what transpired . . . was plainly audible to Secret Service and household staff members down the hall. In the past, Hillary had thrown books and an ashtray at the president — both hitting their mark . . . Hillary slapped him across the face — hard enough to leave a red mark that would be clearly visible to Secret Service agents when he left the room.

“ ‘You stupid, stupid, stupid bastard,’ Hillary shouted.”

As editor and author R. Emmett Tyrell has reported, the verbal and physical abuse has not relented since the Clintons left the White House: “Sources close to the Secret Service . . . report that dreadful altercations have erupted several times,” and usually involve “yelling, screaming, throwing of soft and hard objects, breakage of vases and glasses and just plain nastiness.”" --Maureen Callahan

CNN Photoshops Oregon Jihadist Shooter to "Fundamentally Transform" Him into a Caucasian Male

More yeoman's work by The Last Refuge, which has been tracking down the rapidly disappearing social media profile of Scumbag McScumbag (it is the policy of our august and highly respected journal not to name psychopathic jihadist mass-murderers).

Remember the Trayvon Martin case? You know, the dude involved in burglary, PCP-like drug cocktails, and/or drug dealing who assaulted George Zimmerman and got capped for his trouble?

Remember how the media claimed there was a new race called "White Hispanics", a term invented "by The New York Times to describe Zimmerman, apparently in some kind of push for a white vs. Black narrative"?

Good times.

Well, the media is at it again, this time photoshopping the Black Jihadist Oregon shooter -- whose name, if memory serves, was Abdul Bin Scumbag -- to make him appear white:

OBAMA AND THE UN 2030 AGENDA: An Almost Unbelievably Criminal Plan for One World Government

By Daniel John Sobieski

Lost among the addresses to the U.N. General Assembly by Pope Francis, President Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin and other world leaders, is the fact that this U.N. session is also the kickoff for the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development conference. “Sustainable” is U.N.-speak for “controlled.” And that means controlled by governments at the expense of liberty and freedom around the world.

The planet is in peril, don’t you know, and humanity is the plague infecting it. The U.N., with U.S. compliance, is hammering out an agenda that will determine not only how many people there will be, but where they will live, how they will live, and what governments will permit them to do in order to save the planet.

If this sounds familiar, it should, for it is the follow-on for the failed Agenda 21 which was rolled out in 1992 at the U.N. Earth Summit in Rio De Janiero, Brazil. Agenda 21 failed in its attempt to eradict poverty and save the earth, but it did serve as a justification for world governments to enhance their power at the expense of the liberty and freedom of their people. Agenda 2030 is no less ambitious in its goal for global government control, according to the preamble of the document outlining the agenda:

10 STARTLING FACTS: Obama, Putin and Syria

By Lawrence Sellin

Ed.: We may be seeing the opening moves of World War III:
  1. Vladimir Putin's overall strategy is to prop up Russia's long-time regional ally, Syrian President Bashar al Assad.
  2. Russia has bombed targets in northwestern Syria, an area mainly held by non-ISIS rebel groups such as the Free Syrian Army and an Islamist coalition, Jaysh al-Fatah.
  3. The aim is to eliminate non-ISIS groups first. Then the Syrian, Russian, Iranian, Hezbollah alliance can turn its attention to ISIS and, thereby, force the United States to support or, at least, do nothing to hinder their operations.
  4. Controlling northwest Syria also safeguards Assad's Shia-Alawite home region and his base of support, as well as securing the strategically critical coastal area containing the Latakia airbase used by Russian forces and the important port of Tartus.

The Bear Has Awakened

“Every man has a right to his own opinion, but no man has a right to be wrong in his facts” ― Bernard M. Baruch

As the market drops 200 to 300 points daily on a fairly frequent basis these days, and has now dropped 13% in the last four months, John Hussman’s valuation analysis based upon historical facts is proving to be accurate. He’s not an “I told you so” type of person, but I am. The MSM stories follow the same old storyline – this is just a correction, time to buy the dip, stocks are undervalued, the Fed won’t let the market fall. We’ve been here before, twice in the last fifteen years. Wall Street and their media mouthpieces attempted to spread misinformation about the nature of the markets in 2000 and 2007, as epic bear markets were just getting underway. John Hussman cut through their crap then and he is cutting through it now:

Top 10 Misleading Obama Statements After Oregon Shooting That Was Praised by ISIS as an Act of Jihad

By Erich Pratt

On October 1, 2015, the nation witnessed another tragic shooting -- this one at the Umpqua Community College in Oregon.

The President shortly took to a national platform to address the killings.

This should have been an opportunity for the President to unite a grieving nation. But instead, he chose to foment division. He even bragged that it was right for him to politicize this tragedy.

Over and over again, on nationwide television, the President misled the American people in an effort to further restrict the rights of law-abiding Americans who have done no wrong.

But to the President, we say: Shame on you, for leveling so many false accusations about guns and crime in America.

Here are the Top Ten misstatements he made during that nationwide address.

QOTD: "Now, I don’t know what Obama thinks, or any of the people on the left think, that just by outlawing more and more guns or controlling more and more law-abiding people that somehow you’re gonna reduce the murder rate. You’re not gonna reduce the murder rate. You’re not gonna do it. You’ve gotta change the culture. You’ve gotta have tough-as-nails prosecutors and judges. After people go through the trial process and get their due process, they need to be put away, if they’re guilty.

The President has unleashed a hate campaign against local law enforcement, and the people who wind up suffering, quite frankly, are the poorest people and minorities in our inner cities.

...Instead, we just need gun control. We don’t even have the facts in this case. We don’t have border control. We don’t control who’s coming here. That he doesn’t care about... We have sanctuary cities that are safe havens for the lawless. That he doesn’t care about. Quite the contrary, he encourages it.

And I might add, we have massive numbers of abortions every year, a majority of which actually occur in the black community, and he supports it. We have this phony Planned Parenthood. That name needs to change. ‘Ooh Planned Parent, ooh we’re planning parenthood.’ No you’re not. Planned Slaughterhouse. We have videos, which have not been altered, which tell the truth and the President won’t even look at them.

“There’s something about liberalism. There’s something about liberalism that truly does not have an appreciation for human life. It’s just true. They want you to believe: we pass another gun control law, ‘Oh, oh, this stuff. Well, it won’t end it, but it’ll help.’ No, it won’t help. It won’t do a thing, except harm those who actually follow the rule of law." --Mark Levin

I’m sure that will bolster trust among our allies about our ability to protect discussions held in confidence with our diplomatic personnel.

State’s not the only group distancing itself from Hillary... Valerie Jarrett [just told] Andrea Mitchell that the White House warned Hillary not to use private e-mail for government business, although Jarrett follows that up with a sop to Hillary’s belated dedication to transparency. Looks like the Obama administration wants to keep its distance from the aroma of collapse." --Ed Morrissey
