Hitlery’s Miserable Kwanza Fail

Hillarious: Hillary’s Miserable Kwanza Fail – Buzzpo

.

.
Hillary Clinton’s attempts to gain black voters have always been hilarious, but this one takes the cake.

The Democratic presidential candidates desperation became evident this week when she changed her Twitter avi to a Kwanzaa themed version of her campaign Hillary “H” logo.

The Democratic front-runner received waves of backlash across social media almost immediately, especially from the black community, who openly mocked her for her desperation in snatching their votes.

Hilarity ensued when the hashtag #NewHillaryLogo was born. Though her campaign sensed the backlash and changed her photo back to her original photo, the damage was already done.

When will Hillary learn that she isn’t black? Or cool?

Shocker! Climate Models Fail To Predict Actual Climate (Video)

Climate Models Fail To Predict Actual Climate – Legal Insurrection

.

.
Environmental activists have relied heavily on computer models to predict climate patterns confirming their notion that mankind is toxic.

However, recent studies have shown models have failed to consider real world conditions in their calculations.

Exhibit 1 – Sea ice is more resilient to melting than thought:

Using new satellite data, researchers at University College London reported in Nature Geoscience on Monday that the total volume of sea ice in the Northern Hemisphere was well above average in the autumn of 2013, traditionally the end of the annual melt season, after an unusually cool summer when temperatures dropped to levels not seen since the 1990s.

“We now know it can recover by a significant amount if the melting season is cut short,” said the study’s lead author Rachel Tilling, a researcher who studies satellite observations of the Arctic. “The sea ice might be a little more resilient than we thought.”

Exhibit 2 – The effects of the vast deserts of the Earth have not been considered, and it appears that a good portion of emitted carbon dioxide is disappearing within them.

About 40 percent of this carbon stays in the atmosphere and roughly 30 percent enters the ocean, according to the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research. Scientists thought the remaining carbon was taken up by plants on land, but measurements show plants don’t absorb all of the leftover carbon. Scientists have been searching for a place on land where the additional carbon is being stored – the so-called “missing carbon sink.”

The new study suggests some of this carbon may be disappearing underneath the world’s deserts – a process exacerbated by irrigation. Scientists examining the flow of water through a Chinese desert found that carbon from the atmosphere is being absorbed by crops, released into the soil and transported underground in groundwater – a process that picked up when farming entered the region 2,000 years ago.

Underground aquifers store the dissolved carbon deep below the desert where it can’t escape back to the atmosphere, according to the new study.

The new desert study concludes that more study is needed… of course.

Many of the comments in the desert piece focus on the replacement of the technical name “carbon dioxide” with the word “carbon”. This switch is misleading, as the former co-founder of Greenpeace and climate scare-science skeptic, Dr. Patrick Moore, discusses in the following Prager University video:

.

.
Moore derides climate models in an wonderful article for Heartland, and he asserts that human emissions have been beneficial:


…My skepticism begins with the believers’ certainty they can predict the global climate with a computer model. The entire basis for the doomsday climate change scenario is the hypothesis increased atmospheric carbon dioxide due to fossil fuel emissions will heat the Earth to unlivable temperatures.

In fact, the Earth has been warming very gradually for 300 years, since the Little Ice Age ended, long before heavy use of fossil fuels. Prior to the Little Ice Age, during the Medieval Warm Period, Vikings colonized Greenland and Newfoundland, when it was warmer there than today. And during Roman times, it was warmer, long before fossil fuels revolutionized civilization.

The idea it would be catastrophic if carbon dioxide were to increase and average global temperature were to rise a few degrees is preposterous.

…Over the past 150 million years, carbon dioxide had been drawn down steadily (by plants) from about 3,000 parts per million to about 280 parts per million before the Industrial Revolution. If this trend continued, the carbon dioxide level would have become too low to support life on Earth. Human fossil fuel use and clearing land for crops have boosted carbon dioxide from its lowest level in the history of the Earth back to 400 parts per million today.

At 400 parts per million, all our food crops, forests, and natural ecosystems are still on a starvation diet for carbon dioxide. The optimum level of carbon dioxide for plant growth, given enough water and nutrients, is about 1,500 parts per million, nearly four times higher than today. Greenhouse growers inject carbon-dioxide to increase yields. Farms and forests will produce more if carbon-dioxide keeps rising.

Since Moore has become an environmental-activism apostate, Greenpeace has worked hard to demean his professionalism and undermine his work. Supporting better climate science would also get in the way of their anti-business protests featuring kayakers blocking ice-breakers on the way to assist Arctic oil drilling operations, which would then cut down on both drama and donations.

In conclusion, reliance on crazy climate models has lead to even crazier behavior.

Stunning Incompetence: TSA Screeners Fail 95 Percent Of Airport Security Tests (Video)

Total Fail: TSA Doesn’t Stop 95 Percent Of Potential Terror Attacks In Tests – Townhall

.

.
Good news, America. All of the tax money you’ve given to the Transportation “Security” Administration seems to have been a waste. All of those grope sessions you’ve endured? Worthless. All of those naked photos random “agents” saw of you? Just pure entertainment (but really).

According to a new Homeland Security report, the TSA failed to stop 95 percent of potential terror attacks at major airports. ABC News has the story (bolding is mine):

An internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration revealed security failures at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports, where undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials, ABC News has learned.

The series of tests were conducted by Homeland Security Red Teams who pose as passengers, setting out to beat the system.

According to officials briefed on the results of a recent Homeland Security Inspector General’s report, TSA agents failed 67 out of 70 tests, with Red Team members repeatedly able to get potential weapons through checkpoints.

In one test an undercover agent was stopped after setting off an alarm at a magnetometer, but TSA screeners failed to detect a fake explosive device that was taped to his back during a follow-on pat down.

The TSA receives $8 billion per year in funding. Just two weeks ago, DHS Inspector General John Roth testified in front of Congress about concerns the agency wasn’t fulfilling it’s original mission.

“Unfortunately, although nearly 14 years have passed since TSA’s inception, we remain deeply concerned about its ability to execute its mission,” Roth said. “Since 2014 we have published more than 115 audit and inspector reports about TSA’s programs and operations. We’ve issued hundreds of recommendations to attempt to improve TSA’s efficiency and effectiveness. We have conducted a series of covert penetration tests, essentially testing TSA’s ability to stop us from bringing in simulated explosives and weapons through checkpoints, as well as testing whether we could enter secure areas through other means.”

Earlier this month, Judicial Watch released documents revealing horrifying details of alleged sexual assaults from TSA agents at airports around the country.

April 7, 2013, at Denver International Airport:

At approximately 14:10 hours on the South Checkpoint, near lane 4 a passenger complained that he sustained an injury resulting from the aggressive actions of the the [sic] TSO [Transportation Security Officer] conducting a pat down search… The passenger stated during the pat-down search he was struck very hard in the groin area, which caused him pain to his left testical [sic].

October 19, 2013, “TSA Contact Center Record,” Los Angeles Airport:

She [TSA agent] then placed full palms squarely on my breasts and then moved around my breasts again. She then placed both palms against my breasts and I was shocked, humiliated, alarmed and assaulted and said ‘Stop! What are you doing? That’s not ok.’… I reported this to TSA Supervisor… She got the manager [redacted] and he said he would look at the video and TSA would send me a letter but it would not tell me the resolution and that I did not have a right to view the video… I will not be sexually assaulted at the airport. As a taxpayer, I pay for the TSA.”

July 5, 2013, “TSA Contact Center Record,” O’Hare Airport:

The female TSO then proceeded to roughly feel of [sic] her breast including her nipples. The TSO didn’t go under her arms or along her sides. She indicated that she did not receive a proper pat down. The search was limited to her breast… Two other individuals came over to where the supervisor and gentleman were and they began laughing. The caller indicated that the incident was not the business of the other two officers and not a show for them. The caller indicated that even the Supervisor, along with the others, began to roar with laughter.

July 6, 2013, “TSA Contact Center Record,” O’Hare Airport:

Caller indicates that her mother feels as though she was singled out because she was a breast cancer survivor and the caller feels as though this is extremely discriminatory. Caller indicates that the breast is an extremely intimate place that should not be rubbed in the manner that it was. Caller expressed that her mother feels extremely violated and the caller feels that being violated in this manner is on the same level as rape. Caller has indicated that her mother will never travel again because of the pat down that she received.

July 29, 2013, “To/From Memo,” O’Hare Airport:

The person began to tell me how TSO [redacted] stuck his hands down his pants and grabbed the top of his penis and placed his fingers in his butt crack… The person was sure that he was violated and wanted to talk to a supervisor… He said he is going to file a police report with Chicago Police Department and file a lawsuit against TSA and Officer [redacted] and walked away.”

If this video doesn’t enrage you, especially after this news, I don’t know what will.

Big Surprise! 70% Of Obama’s Illegal Aliens Fail To Show Up For ICE Appointments

70% Of Obama’s Illegals Are No-Shows For ICE Appointments – Conservative Hideout

Obama turned – well, we were never told how many tens of thousands of families and children he turned loose in the streets of America. He never even told what cities those streets were located. We were told, however, not to worry because the were each given a temporary document of identification and a date and time that each should show-u at an immigration office for secondary interviews.

.

.
Well, Fox News reported on an AP story:

Tens of thousands of young families caught crossing the border illegally earlier this year subsequently failed to meet with federal immigration agents, as they were instructed, the Homeland Security Department has acknowledged privately.

An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that about 70 percent of immigrant families the Obama administration had released into the U.S. never showed up weeks later for follow-up appointments.

The ICE official made the disclosure in a confidential meeting at its Washington headquarters with immigration advocates participating in a federal working group on detention and enforcement policies. The Associated Press obtained an audio recording of Wednesday’s meeting and separately interviewed participants.

Asylum Watch readers are not surprised that 70% were no-shows. We are surprised that this implies that 30% did show-up for their interview. The bright side of this story is that if DHS can’t locate tens of thousands of illegal, whom they turned loose, the Democrats won’t be able to find them either to get them to vote illegally this November. That was the plan, wasn’t it? Eric Holder must be steaming mad.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

FAIL! Obamacare Call Center Lines Go Down After Obama Tells People To Call 800 Number

Obamacare Call Center Lines Go Down After Obama Tells People To Call 1-800 Number – Weasel Zippers

Obamacare excels at one thing, and one thing only, failure.

.
……….

Via NRO:

President Obama emerged on Monday to assure Americans that the “kinks” surrounding the federal and state health-care exchanges are improving and urged consumers to call the exchange hotline if they continue to encounter problems online. Shortly after he made the suggestion, Twitter lit up with reporters and others who attempted to do so but failed to get through to a navigator as promised. After dialing the number, some callers got a busy signal, others received an automated message, and yet others were referred back to Healthcare.gov.

Obamanomics Fail: American Incomes Fell By Twice As Much During Obama ‘Recovery’ Than During ‘Recession’

Obamanomics Fail: American Incomes Fell By Twice As Much During Obama ‘Recovery’ Than During ‘Recession’ – Independent Journal Review

.

The Weekly Standard Blog reports on another failure of the Obama economic policy. According to new research, Obama’s attempt to staunch the “income gap” has caused the average income Americans to fall at a much greater rate during his “recovery” than what he constantly touts as, “the greatest recession since the Great Depression.”

New estimates derived from the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey by Sentier Research indicate that the real (inflation-adjusted) median annual household income in America has fallen by 4.4 percent during the “recovery,” after having fallen by 1.8 during the recession. During the recession, the median American household income fell by $1,002 (from $55,480 to $54,478). During the recovery – that is, from the officially defined end of the recession (in June 2009) to the most recent month for which figures are available (June 2013) – the median American household income has fallen by $2,380 (from $54,478 to $52,098). So the typical American household is making almost $2,400 less per year (in constant 2013 dollars) than it was four years ago, when the Obama “recovery” began.

Actually, the disparity is more than twice as much, approaching two and a half times as much.

Let’s take the liberal assumption that income inequality is a measure that should be considered as a measure of success of governance, and that the government should be concerned with lessening it, even at the expense of average income growth.

How did Obama do there? Awful:

Research by University of California economist Emmanuel Saez shows that since the Obama recovery started in June 2009, the average income of the top 1% grew 11.2% in real terms through 2011.

The bottom 99%, in contrast, saw their incomes shrink by 0.4%.

As a result, 121% of the gains in real income during Obama’s recovery have gone to the top 1%. By comparison, the top 1% captured 65% of income gains during the Bush expansion of 2002-07, and 45% of the gains under Clinton’s expansion in the 1990s.

So if the “recovery” fails by the conservative standard of simply raising wealth and prosperity, and it fails by the liberal measure of redistribution of income from the top to the bottom, what is left to credit Obama with?

Nothing – which is exactly why he spends all his time blaming Congress for his failures.

Gun-Grabbing, Leftist Parasites Fail To Pass Expanded Background Checks Bill In Senate

Lawmakers Kill Expanded Background Checks Gun Proposal In Senate – Daily Caller

President Barack Obama was hoping the emotions from the Newtown elementary school massacre would lead to new gun control measures.

.

But the president’s hopes for new laws placing new restrictions on gun owners may have ended Wednesday, as the Democratic-controlled Senate voted against a watered down gun-control proposal seen as having the best chance of passing.

The Manchin/Toomey amendment expanding mandatory background checks – billed as a compromise proposal that both parties could back – failed to get the 60 required votes in the body. Fifty-four senators voted for the legislation, while 46 voted against it. The bill is named for Republican Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey and Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, who collaborated to craft it.

“This isn’t gun control,” Toomey argued on the floor before the vote. “It’s common-sense.”

But gun rights activists scoffed at the proposal – which requires background checks for all commercial transactions – saying it would do nothing to stop another mass shooting.

“Expanded background checks would not have prevented Newtown,” Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley said before the vote.

The Senate was also poised to vote on eight other amendments having to do with guns on Wednesday afternoon, including a conservative alternative offered by Grassley and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and a federal “assault weapons” ban sponsored by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

“Shame on you,” a woman in the gallery shouted when the vote tally was announced.

Four Republican senators voted for the measure: Toomey, Susan Collins of Maine, Mark Kirk of Illinois and John McCain of Arizona.

Four Democrats – Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Max Baucus of Montana, Mark Begich of Alaska and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota – voted against the measure. The first three face re-election in red-leaning states next year.

New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who has not cast a vote since Feb. 28 due to health issues, made his first return to the floor to vote in favor of the bill in a wheelchair.

He was greeted by a smattering of applause led by Maryland Rep. Barbara Mikulski. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin leaned down to kiss him on the cheek.

When Lautenberg cast his “aye” vote, he got a loud round of applause from Democrats, causing the presiding member to call for order.

Vice President Joe Biden presided over the Senate for the vote.

FAIL: Obama’s Favorite Green Energy Success Story, Spain, Halts All New Renewable Energy Projects (Video)

FAIL: Obama’s Favorite Green Energy Success Story, Spain, Halts All New Renewable Energy Projects – Gateway Pundit

Remember how Barack Obama repeatedly lectured us on how we had to be more like Spain?

.

.
Obama loved Spain’s green energy policy despite the fact that every job created in the sector cost 2.2 private sector jobs.

Gabriel Calzada’s full study can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/d7z9ye

Now there’s this…

Spain announced this week that they would halt all new renewable energy and co-generation projects.

Renewable Energy reported, via Steven Hayward at Power Line:

For over a decade, the Spanish government has prevented utilities from charging consumers the true costs of electricity. In other words, the final price paid by both large and small electricity buyers has been kept artificially low, in an arguably misguided attempt to contain inflation, protect consumers, and maintain the competitiveness of Spanish industry.

But it doesn’t matter. Obama is set on forcing the same failed policies on the United States. After all, he has donors to take care of.

Obama DOE Says It’s Preparing For Another Round Of “Green Energy” Loans – Weasel Zippers

Because Solyndra, Fisker, Solar One etc. were such resounding successes?

Via The Hill:

The Energy Department said Thursday it expects to begin tentatively approving new taxpayer-backed loans for renewable energy projects in the coming months.

The announcement comes about seven months after Solyndra, the California solar firm that received a $535 million loan guarantee from the administration in 2009, went bankrupt, setting off a firestorm in Washington.

“The Department expects to begin issuing conditional commitments over the next several months after completing a rigorous internal and external review of each application,” Energy Department loan program chief David Frantz wrote to the top lawmakers on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

Frantz – in the letter to committee Chairman Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.) and ranking Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) – stressed that projects receiving loan guarantees will be “subject to a robust monitoring effort to ensure that taxpayers’ investments are protected.”
