Let’s take a break from the Trump vs. Rubio vs. Cruz debates to mock the biggest loser of this election cycle. That infamy belongs to none other than Jeb Bush aka The Dauphin. Although personally a decent man, the uncrowned prince expects the GOP nomination to be handed to him. This has caused a rejection on the part of Republican voters who didn’t want the Dauphin to run.

In desperation mode, Jeb is paying people to fills eats at his rally. In an embarrassing moment, some of those stand up demanded their pay. The Dauphin was not too pleased.

A little flier showed up early Monday morning on social media.

A handful of Twitter users supporting various Republican presidential candidates tweeted a photo of slip of paper with a headline reading “$$$ Earn fast cash today! $$$” and an offer for $25 an hour to attend Jeb Bush’s final campaign event at the Embassy Suites in downtown Des Moines.

The implication: Bush was so desperate he was paying for faux supporters seven hours before the caucuses.

[….]

The notion that some kind of gamesmanship was afoot gained legitimacy at the event itself, when moments after Bush began speaking two young men stood up and very conspicuously demanded to be paid for their “seat filling.”

“We’ve been here for over two hours and we haven’t gotten paid for our time,” one man said, unleashing a torrent of boos and jeers from the audience.

“That is such — get out of here, man,” Bush shot back.

Staffers from his campaign approached the men and escorted them out, and Bush continued his speech. As he opened the floor for questions, though, he made sure the plants had all been removed.

If this is not bad enough, the Dauphin has spent 5,000 per vote.

In very early national polling in the Republican nomination race, Jeb Bush was the clear front-runner. But he never led in Iowa, where first Mike Huckabee, then Scott Walker, and then Donald Trump — interrupted briefly by Ben Carson and more effectively by Ted Cruz — held the lead. As recently as April, though, Bush was in a close second, trailing Walker by about three points.

Walker’s gone, and Bush ended up in sixth place Monday night, pulling in less than 3 percent of the vote. Between April and the caucus, Bush’s campaign spent $27.4 million dollars (according to FEC reports) and dropped 11 points in the polls. Not all of that spending was in Iowa, but Bush refused to give up on the state — and it cost him.

The Dauphin who called illegal immigration an act of love, then has the aducaity to run an ad attacking Rubio on Immigration.

Jeb Bush has turned into a sad and pathetic figure.  This is not the end of the Bush dynasty, waiting in the wings is the Duc D’Orleans George P. Bush!

This song is perfect for the Dauphin’s campaign.

Jeb Bush is a loser!

Pre Caturday: Woman who claims to be a Cat

Move over Shaun King and Rachel Dolezal, you have a new competition in the role playing department. A 20 year old Norwegian woman named  Nano claims that she is a cat. Yes you read this correctly, she swears that her human body is a genetic defect. Nano claims she hisses at Dogs and wants to eat mice.

Woman says she is a cat trapped in the wrong body – she hisses at dogs, hates water and claims she can even see better at night

A psychologist has said she can grow out of it, but Nano wants to be a cat for life

We probably all feel a bit like a sleepy housecat when we have to get up for work in the morning.

This Norwegian woman has taken that feeling to the next level. Nano claims she realised she was a cat when she was 16 years old, and has adopted feline mannerisms since.

The 20-year-old has opened up about her life as a puss, describing how she has a superior sense of hearing and sight which allows her to hunt mice in the dark.

She made the revelation in a YouTube video, which has been viewed over 100,000 times.

Nano claims to possess many feline characteristics including a hatred of water and the ability to communicate simply by meowing.

[….]

“I realised I was a cat when I was 16 when doctors and psychologists found out what was “the thing” with me. Under my birth there was a genetic defect,” she explains in the video.

As they walked through Oslo’s central station, the presenter asked Nano what she could hear and see that a normal person might not.

“Suitcases rolling on the ground,” she says, “Keys clinking in pockets. People with ice under their shoes.”

[….]

“He is human but has someone in his head that is a cat, and I am born as a cat,” Nano confirms.

The young woman said her life as a cat was “exhausting” but she doesn’t want to live as a human.

Nano is a product of the Hipster menace that is destroying Europe, America, Canada, Latin America and Australia from within. The idea that reality does not matter and that you can be whatever you want. Fantasy has become reality and people like Nano no longer are in touch with reality.

This mindset is why Hipsters like Obama and Justin Trudeau got elected as leaders of their respective nations. This mindset is why Angela Merkel and the EU believed Islamic peoples are compatible with Western Society. Although this story maybe funny, it’s very scary and a sign of the mental breakdown the Western world is now having.

The Alumni Say ‘No.’

There is some light, some hope in academia.

AND

Money talks, bullshit walks..an important lesson for the little socialist to learn. Maybe one day when their college degree and their talent enable them to earn large sums they too can be a donor.

 

BWAHAHAHAAAAA!!!! Not!

 

Cecil Rhodes statue to remain at Oxford University after alumni threaten to withdraw millions

Exclusive: Threats by alumni to withdraw millions in donations prompted Oriel College decision, leaked documents reveal

 

The statue of Cecil Rhodes at Oriel College

Oxford University’s statue of Cecil Rhodes is to stay in place after furious donors threatened to withdraw gifts and bequests worth more than £100 million if it was taken down, The Daily Telegraph has learnt.

The governing body of Oriel College, which owns the statue, has ruled out its removal after being warned that £1.5m worth of donations have already been cancelled, and that it faces dire financial consequences if it bows to the Rhodes Must Fall student campaign.

A leaked copy of a report prepared for the governors and seen by this newspaper discloses that wealthy alumni angered by the “shame and embarrassment” brought on the 690-year-old college by its own actions have now written it out of their wills.

The college now fears a proposed £100m gift – to be left in the will of one donor – is now in jeopardy following the row.

The donors were astonished by a proposal to remove a plaque marking where Rhodes lived, and to launch a six-month consultation over whether the statue of the college’s biggest benefactor should be taken down.

But Oriel College confirmed in a statement to the Telegraph: “Following careful consideration, the College’s governing body has decided that the statue should remain in place.”

A small but vocal group of student activists had argued that the image of Rhodes, whose legacy still funds Rhodes scholarships for overseas students, should be toppled because the Victorian imperialist was a racist.

Oriel’s agreement to enter into discussion about the future of the statue triggered a wider row about free speech in universities and whether students need to be protected from offence.

Oriel has now been panicked into cancelling the proposed six-month consultation and the plaque marking the building where he lived while he was a student at Oriel will also stay, but both will have an accompanying sign providing historical “context”.

At a meeting on Wednesday the governing body was told that because of its ambiguous position on the removal of the statue, “at least one major donation of £500,000” that was expected this year has been cancelled.

In addition, a “potential £750,000 donor” has stopped responding to messages from the college, and several alumni have written to Oriel to say “they are disinheriting the college from their wills”.

One of those who has already cancelled their legacy was going to leave a “seven figure sum” and the college is aware that “another major donor is furious with the College… whose legacy could be in excess of £100m”.

The report warns that there will now “almost certainly” be “one or two redundancies” in its Development Office team because of the collapse in donations. And it has cancelled an annual fundraising drive that should have taken place in April. The report also warns that Oriel’s development office could now make an operating loss of around £200,000 this year.

Sean Power, Oriel’s development director and the man in charge of fundraising, told the governors in a report that the college was unprepared for the national and international condemnation of the suggestion that the statue might be removed, described by the classicist Professor Mary Beard as a “completely barking” plan to “erase” history.

Mr Power wrote that: “The overall reaction has been significant, much more than any in the College predicted. It has also been overwhelmingly negative of the College’s position and its actions.

“The likely long-term impact on development and fundraising, assuming our current course of action regarding the statue, is potentially extremely damaging…our alumni do not need many excuses not to give, and for many this will be such an excuse for years to come.

“The current situation is generating a media storm that is right at the limits of what the University can deal with, and support us in.”

City of Rome goes Dhimmi

The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was visiting Rome for a state trip to Italy. On the itinerary was a trip to the Capitoline Museum. In a move that smacks of Dimmitude, the Italian government covered up some of the nude statues.

The Romans have censored themselves to make visiting Iranian President Hassan Rouhani feel more comfortable during his historic stop in Italy.

Rouhani — the first Iranian leader to visit Europe in almost 20 years — met Tuesday with Pope Francis at the Vatican, but another stop on his agenda was the famed Capitoline Museum, where classic Italian nude sculptures were covered with plain white boards to avoid offending the Muslim president.

Italian news agency ANSA said the nudes were covered out of respect for Rouhani.

Nonetheless, the move wasn’t going over well with many Italians on social media, some of whom lambasted it as “absurd,” and “embarrassing, servile behaviour.”

The Caesars weep at the cowardice of their descendants. Once again, the west bows before Iran and Islam.
