Memories Pizza Reopens to Packed House; Lib Protesters Fail to Show

Memories-Pizza-550x321

If the “social justice warriors” did decide to show up, I suspect they’d receive a rather chilly reception. SJWs prefer soft targets.

Via Washington Times

A northern Indiana pizzeria that closed after its owner said his religious beliefs wouldn’t allow him to cater a gay wedding opened Thursday to a full house of friends, regulars and people wanting to show their support.

“It’s a relief to get going again and try to get back to normal,” said Kevin O’Connor, owner of Memories Pizza.

O’Connor closed the shop for eight days after comments by him and his daughter, Crystal, to a local television station supporting a new religious objections law. The law, which has since been revised, sparked a boycott of Indiana.

O’Connor said the criticism hasn’t changed his beliefs. He said gays are welcome in his restaurant in the small, one-traffic-light town of Walkerton, 20 miles southwest of South Bend, but that he would decline to cater a same-sex wedding because it would conflict with his Christian beliefs.

“I’d do the same thing again. It’s my belief. It’s our belief. It’s what we grew up on,” he said. “I’m just sorry it comes to this because neither one of us dislike any of those people. I don’t hold any grudges.”

A crowdfunding campaign started by supporters raised more than $842,000 with donations from 29,160 contributors in 48 hours. O’Connor said he hasn’t received the money yet, but said he plans to give some to charity and use some money to make improvements to the restaurant.

The 61-year-old father of eight who has owned the restaurant for nine years said he never thought about taking the money and retiring.[…]

Jeanne and Ken Gumm from outside LaPorte, about 20 miles northwest of Walkerton, said they had been waiting for the pizzeria to reopen so they could show their support.

“We couldn’t wait to get down here,” said Ken Gumm, 66, a tank truck driver. “To us this whole thing isn’t about gay marriage. It’s mostly about freedom of religion.”

This week’s winning essay by a nose,Joshuapundit’s -Munich II examines President Obama’s so-called ‘framework’ of his nuclear agreement with Iran. As we nowknow, our president was not exactly being honest with the American people in that speech in the Rose Garden! So what’s the actual motivation behind his apparent desperation to achieve some kind of deal..something the Iranians are happily taking advantage of. Here’s a slice:

President Barack Hussein Obama announced yesterday that a deal – ooops, a ‘framework for a deal’ had been achieved with Iran on its illegal nuclear program.

Here’s what the president said the components of this unwritten, unsigned framework were.

First of all, he claimed that the reactor at Iran’s heavy water facility at Arak will be dismantled so the Iranians cannot produce plutonium, a second route to nuclear weapons.He also claimed that nuclear material from Arak would be shipped out of Iran, that Iran would not build a new heavy water reactor and that Iran will not reprocess fuel from its existing reactors ever.

Second, he claimed that the Iranians agreed that its centrifuges would be reduced by two thirds, and that Iran will not enrich uranium with its advanced centrifuges for at least the next 10 years. He also said that Iran would no longer enrich uranium at its top secret military facility at Fordow. and that there would be severe limits on Iran’s stockpiling of the materials needed to build a nuclear weapon.

He said there would be limits on Iran’s nuclear program, research and development for a decade and that Iran would never be allowed to build a nuclear weapon.

He also claimed that current sanctions would be gradually phased out in accordance with Iranian compliance, that Iran would face intense inspections and scrutiny, and that if if was found cheating, the UN would slap massive sanctions back on Iran.

There’s not a single statement in the above four paragraphs that’s true, and that comes from no less than Iran’s own Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who supposedly agreed to all this in the last minute negotiations at Lausanne:

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif accused the Obama administration of misleading the American people and Congress in a fact sheet it released following the culmination of negotiations with the Islamic Republic.

Zarif bragged in an earlier press conference with reporters that the United States had tentatively agreed to let it continue the enrichment of uranium, the key component in a nuclear bomb, as well as key nuclear research.

Zarif additionally said Iran would have all nuclear-related sanctions lifted once a final deal is signed and that the country would not be forced to shut down any of its currently operating nuclear installations. […]

Zarif, echoing previous comments, said the United States has promised an immediate termination of sanctions.

“Iran/5+1 Statement: ‘US will cease the application of ALL nuclear-related secondary economic and financial sanctions.’ Is this gradual?” he wrote on Twitter.

He then suggested a correction: “Iran/P5+1 Statement: ‘The EU will TERMINATE the implementation of ALL nuclear-related economic and financial sanctions’. How about this?”

On Thursday evening, Zarif told reporters the latest agreement allows Iran to keep operating its nuclear program.

“None of those measures” that will move to scale back Iran’s program “include closing any of our facilities,” Zarif said. “We will continue enriching; we will continue research and development.”

“Our heavy water reactor will be modernized and we will continue the Fordow facility,” Zarif said. “We will have centrifuges installed in Fordow, but not enriching.”

The move to allow Iran to keep centrifuges at Fordow, a controversial onetime military site, has elicited concern that Tehran could ramp up its nuclear work with ease.

The scrutiny and inspections, of course, can be relied on to tell us everything we need to know about Iran’s nuclear program, right? Because the Iranians would never try to hide that sort of thing from us, and can be relied on not to cheat

As for the president’s threat of renewed sanctions, just like his promises on ObamaCare he is knowingly lying to the American people. It took two years to put together the sanctions regimen in the UN. Now that Obama has essentially dismantled it, it isn’t going to happen again, certainly not in time to be of any use. Russia will see to that.

And here perhaps is the most chilling statement Zarif made:

Zarif also revealed that Iran will be allowed to sell “enriched uranium” in the international market place and will be “hopefully making some money” from it.

Can you imagine whom a regime that is the major supporter of Islamist terrorism like Iran is likely to sell nuclear materials and know how to? Iran itself obtained quite a bit from Pakistan’s notorious AQ Khan when he was running what amounted to a cash and carry supermarket for this sort of merchandise. What Iran is obviously planning will make what Khan did look minor.

President Obama claims that this ‘framework’ agreement is a good deal. In reality, all it does is give Iran another three which gives Iran another three months to work on its nuclear weapons technology in exchange for…absolutely nothing specific. Instead of leading to reduced nuclear proliferation, it will increase it, since countries like Egypt and Saudi Arabia are under no illusions as to what this means.

This goes beyond mere appeasement. President Obama and John Kerry are enabling a nuclear armed Iran.

All other things aside, this president and his team are allowing a murderous regime that has sworn to destroy Israel on numerous occasions the tools to attempt a second Holocaust. And there’s no question in my mind that this is deliberate.

The moron prog think tank response to this is that the Iranians are rational actors whom would never do this, because of the risk of retaliation by Israel. Let’s see what the founder of the regime, the Ayatollah Khomeini had to say about that:

“We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah. For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land [Iran] burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.”

The Iranians have continued to promise to destroy Israel since 1978 when Khomeini took over. That goal has never changed.

Neither has their goal of destroying America.

Male Bashing Leftist Cadre and U of VA President Teresa Sullivan!!

Don Surber: This Mustela academia arbitrarily suspended every fraternity and sorority at the University based solely on a music magazine’s ludicrous, unsourced story about a gang  rape. She did so without a hearing or even any modicum of a nod to jurisprudence, even though her husband is listed as a “legal scholar” by Wikipedia. She did so despite Duke University’s witch hunt against its lacrosse team in 2006. But Teresa Sullivan has a lengthy career in the Mustela family, beginning as a student at the University of Michigan when she sucked up to its then-president, Clifton R. Wharton, Jr., as an intern. She climbed the ladder of college presidenting basically because she is a woman at a time when universities need women presidents because, hey, 60% of their students are. In 2012, the University of Virginia board tried to dump her, but then-Governor Bob McDonnell threatened to dump all the board members. He is now in prison for political corruption. Jann Wenner — our Mustela trustfund-hippietis — deserves an honorable mention, of course, but give her the Golden Weasel.

Yes,male bashing is indeed in season, with special thanks to The Federal Department of education, Eric Holder and the Obama Justice Department, who pressured colleges across the nation to restrict a male student’s right to due process by using ‘preponderance of the evidence’ as the new, lower standard of proof instead of the higher ‘clear and convincing’ standard.Ans seeing whom runs academia these days, getting them to declare open season on college age males wasn’t a struggle at all.

So when Rolling Stone began shopping for a made to order story to push their political agenda, the University of Virginia, with a president who was a veteran of the feminist culture wars was perfect. Rolling Stone found Jackie Coakley there, a long time radical feminist wannabe activist with her story of a fake gang rape and the next thing you know, the Leftist megaphone trumpeted it across America. Ms. Sullivan shut down all fraternity, innocent male students were publicly shamed and maligned, and their fraternity house was vandalized, all wile Ms. Sullivan preened and posed for the press.

After the bogus narrative collapsed and went down in flames, Ms. Sullivan never once apologized to the fraternity or students involved, nor was there any disciplinary action against Jackie Coakly. In fact, many of the usual suspects are going out of their way to call the fake UVA gang rape story ‘fake but accurate’ ala’ Dan Rather, and to portray Jackie Coakley as the ultimate victim of this sordid affair.

So Ms. Sullivan, please step up and get your richly deserved Weasel. The real payoff, of course will be in about a decade. Most savvy young men these days know better than to date a young woman who works with them or goes to the same college they do…the risks of being falsely labeled guilty of rape or sexual assault are simply too great. So they’ll look elsewhere, and two places where many young women used to meet suitable mates are largely disappearing. Scores of women between their late twenties and thirties who simply couldn’t find a man worth marrying will face single lives of loneliness and depression because because of people like you and your agenda….now that’s Weaselness.

Well, there it is.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

MUST WATCH: Clare Lopez on Obama’s ‘New Beginning Speech’

I’m with David Horowitz: it’s time to start calling this so-called president of ours, Barack Hussein Obama, what he truly is—a duplicitous traitor. If you have a problem with that, then you’re part of the problem, as far as I’m concerned.

Article V Convention Debate: Dr. Larry Arnn v. Michael P. Farris

By: Brent Parrish

In this video, Dr. Larry P. Arnn, a constitutional scholar and president of Hillsdale College, debates Michael P. Farris, a lawyer and chancellor of Patrick Henry College, about the desirability and practicality of an Article V Convention. Dr. Arnn is not in favor of a constitutional convention, while Farris supports it.

While I do not disagree with all of Farris’ points, I think Dr. Arnn makes a stronger case as to why a so-called “Convention of the States” is riddled with many pitfalls that, quite frankly, I feel many who favor a convention are either not aware of, or choose to ignore altogether (for whatever reason).

I’m currently, as we “speak,” writing an article that attempts to explain in layman’s terms my reasons in opposing a constitutional convention (a.k.a. Con-Con) at this time. Suffice it to say, I doubt I could explain my position and reasoning better than Dr. Arrn, for whom I have a tremendous amount of respect and admiration, especially when it comes to matters concerning the U.S. Constitution. I will be highlighting in my article some of Dr. Arnn’s points he made during this debate with Michael Farris. So, stay tuned.
