New York Yankees Will Pay for Slain NYPD Officer’s Sons’ Education

Hat/Tip to Andrew Desiderio at Mediaite. Amid all the chaos and heartbreak in New York since the Grand Jury found No True Bill in the Eric Garner case, and the subsequent murder of two NYPD Officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, up pops a story not rooted in bad news. The New York Yankees will pay for Officer Rafael Ramos‘s children’s education, the New York Daily News reported Sunday. The Yankee Silver Shield Foundation, founded in 1982 by late Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, pays for the education of children of NYPD, FDNY, and Port Authority officials who died in the line of duty. Officer Ramos […]

  I dedicate this reblog that I snagged at the great Geeez Blog to my friend, Brian, a retired cop. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Police Harassment, Chula Vista, California style Recently, the Chula Vista, California Police Department ran an e-mail forum with the local community (a question and answer exchange) with the topic being, Community Policing.”  One of  the civilian e-mail participants posed the following question:”I would like to know how it is possible for police officers to continually harass people and get away with it?”From the “other side” (the law enforcement side) Sgt.

Video Of NYPD Officers Turning Their Backs On De Blasio…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This is a video update to a previous story covered by WeaselZippers. It seems that NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio is losing favor with the boys in blue. That same men and women who put their lives on the line everyday, 24/7 to protect the citizens of the Big Apple. But it’s okay, I mean he’s got Al Sharpton to pal around with… The two officers were pronounced dead at Woodhull Hospital, where their colleagues and family members huddled tearfully. City Council President Melissa Mark-Viverito and Mayor Bill de Blasio were less than welcome guests at the […]

Cops’ Killer Angry Over Garner Death

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. “I’m putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours, let’s take 2 of theirs.” He used the following hashtags – ‘Shootthepolice’ ‘RIPErivGardner’  ‘RIPMikeBrown.’     That’s what Ismaaiyl Brinsley, the gunman who murdered the two NYPD officers in cold blood wrote online, misspellings and all, before he committed his crime. A gunman who announced online that he was planning to shoot two “pigs” in retaliation for the chokehold death of Eric Garner ambushed two police officers in a patrol car and shot them to death in broad daylight Saturday before running to a subway station and […]

On Normalizing Relations…

  Barack Obama, America’s would be dictator, once said his job would be easier if America had a government more like that of China. Considering how much time he spends on vacation or playing golf or watching ESPN or signing Executive Orders or Presidential Memorandums, I don’t see how his job could get much easier or more like that of a dictator. His latest unilateral action was to normalize relations with the Castro regime of Cuba. The rhetoric has been flying from those on both sides of the issue. This humble observer of the asylum we all have to live […]

Raul Castro to United States And Obama: Thanks For The Lifeline, But We’re Still Commies!

Hat/Tip to CNSNews.com. Even though President Obama said that his actions towards Cuba were the best way to enact change for the people, Raul Castro sees it a bit differently. Cuban President Raul Castro sent a blunt message to Washington Saturday as the White House works to reverse a half-century of hostility between the U.S. and Cuba: Don’t expect detente to do away with the communist system. “We must not expect that in order for relations with the United States to improve, Cuba will abandon the ideas that it has struggled for,” Castro said. And the three spies released by […]

Hell to Get WiFi!

Satan, CEO and CTO of Hell Enterprises has announced a sweeping new technology initiative that will greatly enhance the overall experience of Hell for tormented souls. “As the CEO I have a responsibility to my stockholders” explained Satan. This isn’t your father’s Hell.  It isn’t enough just to torment souls with eternal fire. People expect more nowadays.  We’ve had problems holding on to tormented souls. Many have left dissatisfied and gone into corporate America.  If I can’t retain damned souls I go out of business.  Adapt or die is my motto.  Well, actually my motto is die and be tormented forever but you […]

U.S. Islamic Scholar Says Porn One Of Main Reasons Muslims Turn To Jihad…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. And all this time, I was under the impression that it was because of Global Climate Warming Change… Shockingly, he lives in Berkeley. Muslim scholar Hamza Yusuf, president of Zaytuna College in Berkeley, Calif., blamed pornography for the proliferation of jihadist violence during a Georgetown University panel discussion Monday about the status of Muslim minorities in non-Muslim countries. (Editor’s Note: Isn’t Ham-za a bad idea for a name for a Muslim baby boy? WHAT were his parents thinking?) Princeton University law professor Robert George moderated the panel, and Yusuf appeared onstage along with John Esposito, a Muslim […]

Obama: Cuba, Si! America, NO!

“[Castro] has been a mythological figure to the left-wing press since the 1950s. For 40 years they’ve chosen to ignore the repressive nature of this Stalinist regime that has done so much to try to harm America.” – Brent Bozell “Obama’s dirty deal with Raul [Castro] will make the worst president in American history Castro’s new best friend … This was not a prisoner exchange. This was a Communist bailout …  The Castro regime is on its last legs. Its sponsors in Moscow and Caracas are going bankrupt due to failing energy prices. The last hope of the Butcher of […]

Obama Lie – “I wish they’d (Sony) have spoken to me earlier.” Truth: Sony CEO – “We spoke to a Senior Adviser in the White House.”

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and Jen Yamato at deadline.com. The Cambridge Police acted stupidly If I had a son… Sending three White House reps to Michael Brown’s funeral Calling Sandra Fluke The Bergdahl swap The list goes on and on. What list? Why the list of events or issues that Barack Obama has come down on the wrong side of, that’s what list. Add Sony’s decision to pull the premiere of their movie, The Interview when pressure put on theatre owner’s across the country forced their hand. Basically, if no theater chains would carry this film, then you can’t release a movie. Of […]

Ex-CIA Employee Admits President Obama Is A “Radical Islamic” Enemy Of America

Hat/Tip to Pamela Geller at dcclothesline.com. Christianity doesn’t have the equivalent of “jihad.” Neither does any other major world religion, except for Islam – the supposedly peaceful religion. “Radical” is such a ridiculous adjective. It is pure Islam, authentic Islam — there is nothing radical or un-Islamic about jihad. I know the Left loves to attack anyone who says that Obama isn’t a Christian, but consider this: Obama’s father was a Muslim, which de facto makes him a Muslim, and he is considered Muslim in the Muslim world. Take, for example, Meriam Ibrahim. Her mother was Christian and raised her […]

My Exclusive Interview With Presidential Assassin Lee Harvey Oswald

Today at Manhattan Infidel I’d like to welcome one of the most famous figures of the 20th century.  Lee Harvey Oswald himself. MI: Good afternoon Mr. Oswald. LHO: Hey, how are you doing? MI: I’m doing okay.  I’m sure my readers would like to know what you have been up to for the past 50 years. LHO: Oh you know, the usual.  Being tormented in hell fire for all eternity while I wait for the resurrection of the dead. MI: What happens then? LHO: I get reunited with my body and my torments will increase exponentially. MI: Sucks to be you. LHO: Yeah well, I’m a marine. I can […]

The Bankers Are In Charge

  Your humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in is a fan of satire. One of my daily reads is the Manhattan Infidel. If you too are a fan of satire, you need to make the Infidel a regular part of your daily routine. Dan Miller ofDanMillerInPanama, also does great satire; although it is sadly only on occasion. For me, good satire is a way of taking the sting out of the otherwise depressing news of the day. Some times, however, the satire drives home the point so well that it can be painful to read. […]

Vermont’s Granola Grifters Give Up On Single Payer Health Insurance

  Even in the most socialist state in the nation, socialism fails. Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is canceling his dream plan to create a single-payer health system in the state, he announced Wednesday. “I am not going to undermine the hope of achieving critically important health care reforms for this state by pushing prematurely for single payer when it is not the right time for Vermont,” Shumlin said in a statement Wednesday. “In my judgment, now is not the right time to ask our legislature to take the step of passing a financing plan for Green Mountain Care.” The problem, […]

Harry Reid Controlled Senate Took 657 Votes…But Only Passed 25 Laws…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Now if we take the amount of money made by Harry Reid, and divide by the number of laws passed, I’d bet he’s got a pretty high average going… This is either ridiculous or a great thing depending on how you look at it…maybe both. Via Washington Examiner: New statistics from C-SPAN detailing the activity in the Senate over the past two years appears to defy the 113th Congress’ reputation as “do-nothing.” The public service cable operation that covers the Senate and House gavel to gavel found that the total number of roll call votes taken in […]
