Gay Community Thinks Crosswalks Are Political Billboards

What color should Black Lives Matter get?

Dancing in the streets about to become a real safety hazard

The lamestream media told you:

"Phoenix values and embraces its LGBTQ brothers and sisters," mayor Stanton said in a news release. "Phoenix is committed to ensuring equal treatment and rights for everyone and showing our support because we know diversity makes us stronger."

The installation of the rainbow crosswalks in Phoenix were requested by the Phoenix Pride Community Foundation, one-n-ten, and Aunt Rita's Foundation after contacting the mayor's office. These groups have offered to cover the costs of materials, installation and ongoing maintenance for the rainbow-painted portions of the crosswalks that are not already maintained by the city, according to the news release.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Painting crosswalks into rainbow colors for sexual politics crosses a bright red line. The gay community must not manipulate (in this case) the Phoenix City Council politicians under the dubious rubrics of "inclusion and diversity." Google informs us this now includes lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders, questioners, transsexuals, asexuals, reassigns, multi-genders, agenders, non-genders, genderqueers, genderfluids, and other recently identified sexually diverse people.

Changing something as basic as safety crosswalks for their personal political ambitions -- especially ones that arouse deep gut feelings, animosity and political discord in the community -- dishonors any respect for older fundamental rights. How many crosswalks will we have to repaint, in what colors, to represent Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, or even the Right to Free Speech -- which you can actually find in the Constitution? How long will this list become? Do we really want gun-rights advocates to get their shot at a crosswalk?

Rainbows make equal crosswalks unequal. Rainbows are magnificent acts of nature. Misappropriating them for political advantage on public roads are Intolerable Acts. It doesn’t matter who pays or how much pride a group has in its adopted color guard. Everyone pays when politicians allow such discrimination against everyone else. It is intolerant and non-inclusive.

The entire gender-confusion bollix is an artifice of the “left” -- a euphemism for socialism, which long ago determined destruction of the family unit was a superb solution for dissolving The American Way. The gay community has every right to live their lives in peace and harmony. This isn’t that. This is an aggressive assault. Brutal communist dictator Nikita Khrushchev said, “We will bury you.” He didn’t say how long it would take, or how they would accomplish the task.

The Federal Register in 1963 recorded 45 stated goals of communism that included a terrifying list of values such as:

discrediting the family as an institution, promoting promiscuity, pornography, obscenity, degeneracy, easy divorce, the negative influence of parents, promoting ugliness, meaningless forms as art, and the idea that such things are normal, natural and healthy.

You can decide for yourself whether any of that is valid, I’m not judging so don’t shoot this messenger. I’m just noticing we’ve arrived.

Khrushchev’s late advocate Saul Alinsky, a widely recognized guiding light for leading leftists Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, is now influencing socialists in America with projects like taking over crosswalks. They must be stopped before they nail the coffin shut on The American Way. It’s not about the rainbows, intolerance and phony inclusion they pitch. It’s about God, family and pure American values first, which they denigrate.

When the term “family values” first hit the scene writ large around 1990, mass-media geniuses screamed “What is that,” as if they didn’t know. Maybe they didn’t, which would be terrifying -- bad enough to revoke their licenses -- except they’re unlicensed operators.

Americans know implicitly what family values are. They are what made this nation the shining beacon of freedom that attracts people to our land. Those values must be protected against the vicious assaults we’re experiencing now at every black-and-white line in the road.

The state newspaper, which promoted the one-sided rainbow program widely, refused to publish this article.

Sexual Harassment Observation

Similar hysteria overtook Germany in 1930s

It's happening.
Everyone jumps on a same bandwagon.
No one feels free to speak out against the rising tide.
If you buck the trend you're an enemy of the common mindset,
now in a lock grip on public thought.
Someone says, "I think he's a _____" (name your poison).
Right now it's sex. Could be wealth. Colors. Anything. Doesn't matter. You're doomed.

That's the dangerous part of what's happening with sexual harassment charges.
Not the harassment. Not the sex.
Not the treatment or mistreatment of women.
Not the time delay in the sh!t hitting the fan -- 40-year delays.

Abuse of people has been on since forever.
Subtle abuse, overt abuse, men, women, kids, quiet, loud, it's been routine.
If you're just finding this out, no, wait, no one is just now finding this out.
The idea that it is now grounds for dismissal and destruction without due process --
mob mentality -- that's the issue.

Islam treats women like slaves. Not figurative slaves, literal slaves.
If actual concern for treatment of women was the issue,
that would be on the radar.
That would be front and center, on the table.
It is not.
Not just muslims in Arabia, and France, and among 1.2 billion muslims.
Right here in Dearborn, Michigan and elsewhere.

Nobody cares about that.
Because it's not part of the herd mentality that's taken control.
The herd mentality is the problem.

Are there real abuse problems between women and men? Sure.
Do men, being unequal, take advantage? Who doesn't know that.
Life is unfair. We all get that.
You do what you can. It's not fair.
Short of felony assault your choices are more limited.
And even then...
Some of it's pure biology, some is more sinister.
Just like life.

Remember: All sexual advances are unwanted sexual advances,
until you find out if they're wanted or not.
That's true for both sexes.

I was fortunate to have met a French woman on a flight to France.
That was in my music-business days, from 1972 - 1980, went to MIDEM,
voted for the Grammy winners, I was in the thick of it, the whole nine yards.
My French girlfriend, bless her, she taught me a lot about the world,
as naive as she may have been about other things (so I taught her
a thing or two too). She informed me, after I gave up one time,
"Oooh Alain... sometimes no meeens yes!"


a) Several weeks prior to Netanyahu's congressional speech

b) 2006 Page Nine report on Iran's development of an atomic bomb

The lamestream media told you:

Just three weeks earlier USA Today reported on Feb. 10, 2105: "President Obama said Monday that the time has come for Iran to decide whether to accept a nuclear deal, and he acknowledged 'very real differences' with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the negotiations."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The Uninvited Ombudsman has been pointing out for years* that Iran is laughing at us, openly and to our faces, and simply continuing to pursue nuclear weapons while the person currently in the White House rattles a sabre fecklessly. The "news" media reports the sabre rattling as if it means something. Critics say the reporters don't know better.

In other news, The National Review quotes Mohammed Ali Jafari, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard saying, "The Americans have very clearly surrendered to Iran's might, and this is obvious in their behavior in the region and their negotiations." The quote accurately describes the entire situation. USA Today could not be reached for comment. Other "news" media apparently didn't get the memo.

In still other news, The National Review quoted Iran's President, Hassan Rouhani, saying "Centrifuges have been running and I promise the Iranian nation that centrifuges will never stop." Centrifuges are the devices needed to create fissionable uranium for atom bombs. Other "news" media apparently didn't get that memo either.

Backgrounder: Most naturally occurring uranium metal has an atomic weight of 238, but a tiny percentage of it is an isotope that weighs 235 (it has three less neutrons in its nucleus). The lighter portion is the part that can be made into a bomb, and Iran is separating this based on the extremely small difference in weight, by converting the metal to a gas, uranium tetrafluoride, and running it in high-speed gas centrifuges. High speed means something like 1,500 revolutions per second (90,000 RPM) which is Mach 2, depending on size.

Iran is believed to have as many as 100,000 of these devices spinning 24 hours a day (the numbers and locations are hotly disputed). Mr. Obama actually thinks Iran has to make some sort of decision about that. Everyone else knows they already have. And now back to your previously scheduled advertising.

* "Diplomats told the Associated Press that Iran is ready to consider complying, at least temporarily, with a U.N. Security Council demand that it freeze uranium enrichment, which can be used in developing atomic weapons," says AP reporter George Jahn, on Sep. 11, 2006...

Iran has been telling the Associated Press it may stop bomb production, which the AP dutifully reports, constantly. Meanwhile, inspectors are locked out, promises are made to gullible reporters instead of responsible authorities... Full report here: (Page Nine No. 15, I'm up to No. 144)

Iran Tweets in English: "Israel Must Be Annihilated"

Media fails to cover THAT part of Netanyahu's speech

The "secret" treaty Obama/Kerry want won't stop an Iranian nuke Netanyahu spells it out -- THAT'S why they hated his appearance

The lamestream media told you:

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a highly controversial speech before Congress on March 3, 2015. Many democrats boycotted the speech, people in Israel thought it was a political stunt, and the president made a big deal out of deciding not to watch it. Mr. Obama and Mr. Netanyahu do not get along.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The crucial parts of Netanyahu's speech were in the beginning.

These were excluded from most U.S. "news" reports, but having watched the whole thing live I heard it. My jaw dropped. A simple web search provides anyone with the transcript. 

You heard about the controversy, the fact that the man currently in the White House turned his back on the speech -- from our greatest ally in the Middle East! isolated among endless murderous muslim maniacs in the region.

Here's what the "news" didn't give you -- the news. FACTS about the blood thirsty madmen seeking atom bombs, literally being aided and abetted by our own president and secretary of state -- unimaginably impeachable offenses. These are not minor glitches or problems. These are full-fledged nightmares.

Netanyahu shed light: "Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei spews the oldest hatred, the oldest hatred of anti-Semitism with the newest technology. He tweets that Israel must be annihilated -- he tweets! You know, in Iran, there isn't exactly free Internet. But he tweets in English that Israel must be destroyed."

Have you seen that in the "news"? No of course not. It would upset their narrative. We need a man to come here from the other side of the world to say it, so the man in the White House can turn his back -- and our media can decide it's not important enough to repeat.

He continues: "For those who believe that Iran threatens the Jewish state, but not the Jewish people, listen to Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, Iran's chief terrorist proxy. He said: 'If all the Jews gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of chasing them down around the world.'"

I am not making this up. Neither is Netanyahu. Have you seen that in the "news"? No of course not. It would upset their narrative of "controversy." We need a man to come here from the other side of the world to say it, so the person in the White House can turn his back and our media can decide not to dwell on it.

"But Iran's regime is not merely a Jewish problem, any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem... The people of Iran are very talented people. They're heirs to one of the world's great civilizations. But in 1979, they were hijacked by religious zealots -- religious zealots who imposed on them immediately a dark and brutal dictatorship. That year, the zealots drafted a constitution, a new one for Iran. It directed the revolutionary guards not only to protect Iran's borders, but also to fulfill the ideological mission of jihad. The regime's founder, Ayatollah Khomeini, exhorted his followers to 'export the revolution throughout the world.'

"America's founding document promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Iran's founding document pledges death, tyranny, and the pursuit of jihad. And as states are collapsing across the Middle East, Iran is charging into the void to do just that."

Israel's prime minister goes on to list Iran's "successes" in pursuit of jihad, all familiar to us, but never spelled out one after the other, connecting the dots.

And then Netanyahu warns us carefully:

"Don't be fooled. The battle between Iran and ISIS doesn't turn Iran into a friend of America.

"Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam. One calls itself the Islamic Republic. The other calls itself the Islamic State. Both want to impose a militant Islamic empire first on the region and then on the entire world. They just disagree among themselves who will be the ruler of that empire.

"In this deadly game of thrones, there's no place for America or for Israel, no peace for Christians, Jews or Muslims who don't share the Islamist medieval creed, no rights for women, no freedom for anyone.

"So when it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy... is your enemy."

And these people want the atom bomb, and are determined to get it. Right now, Secretary of State Kerry is working to give it to them. He is naively negotiating with these savages, agreeing to terms that are unenforceable, conditions that cannot be verified, guarantees that cannot be confirmed, and that doesn't even matter, because in a mere few years, the entire agreement expires, and Iran is totally unrestricted and can do whatever it pleases. It's as if Obama wants Iran to have nuclear weapons.

Netanyahu points out that the only difference between the warring factions, "is that ISIS is armed with butcher knives, captured weapons and YouTube, whereas Iran could soon be armed with intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear bombs."

Speaking only of publicly available information (he was scolded for using secret intelligence, but made it clear everything he "revealed" was already on Google), "To defeat ISIS and let Iran get nuclear weapons would be to win the battle, but lose the war... that, my friends, is exactly what could happen, if the deal now being negotiated is accepted by Iran. That deal will not prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. It would all but guarantee that Iran gets those weapons, lots of them."

And he goes on to detail how all of Iran's nuke plants continue to exist, grow, operate and make enriched uranium. Inspectors can document violations -- but can't stop them. And like North Korea, Iran breaks the locks, takes out the cameras, and plays "hide and cheat," constantly. These aren't Boy Scouts -- they are villains. They've been caught twice with huge secret nuke plants -- not barrels of uranium, that inspectors didn't know existed. The chief IAEA inspector said, "If there's no undeclared installation today in Iran, it will be the first time in 20 years that it doesn't have one."

Netanyahu told us, in front of Congress: "Iran's Supreme Leader says Iran plans to have 190,000 centrifuges, not 6,000 or even the 19,000 that Iran has today, but 10 times that amount -- 190,000 centrifuges enriching uranium. With this massive capacity, Iran could make the fuel for an entire nuclear arsenal and this in a matter of weeks, once it makes that decision."

Did the "news" media report any of this to you? This is the important part of Bibi's speech. And there is nothingcontroversial about Israel in this. Iran is the controversy here. And our media -- now among our greatest enemies -- is a root problem for us. They are keeping you in the dark. Iran plans to make enough enriched uranium for an arsenal of nukes, not a bomb, they want to annihilate our greatest ally. We're their greatest enemy, and you had to read my report to find out. Hmmm.

Netanyahu's not done: " Now I want you to think about that. The foremost sponsor of global terrorism could be weeks away from having enough enriched uranium for an entire arsenal of nuclear weapons and this with full international legitimacy.

"And by the way, if Iran's Intercontinental Ballistic Missile program is not part of the deal, and so far, Iran refuses to even put it on the negotiating table. Well, Iran could have the means to deliver that nuclear arsenal to the far-reach corners of the Earth, including to every part of the United States... That's why this deal is so bad. It doesn't block Iran's path to the bomb; it paves Iran's path to the bomb."

And Mr. Obama is designing it with Mr. Kerry, who claim ignorance. Who knows, maybe they are. That's why Mr. Netanyahu came here  to speak directly to us.

Then the controversial part (according to our press) -- if Iran wants a good deal, stop behaving so badly, stop exporting terrorism, stop your path to nuclear weapons, stop your brutality at home and abroad, treat your woman like humans, endure sanctions while you behave so badly, Israel will always remain a staunch ally of the U.S., and we know we in Israel can count of you in America, but we cannot and will not allow this to occur no matter what, for the sake of the world. You can read it all online.

Western Conservative Conference (Trevor Loudon)

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing. It was only CPAC for the Western U.S. With more than 600 people including key leaders of the conservative movement, why cover that?

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Google it, there's news out there. I was emcee for the luncheon, with Grover Norquist (Americans for Tax Reform), Trent Franks (AZ Congressman), more.

Author and lecturer Trevor Louden from New Zealand, who fights global communist and socialist subversion, made more sense about our presidential election in 2016 than any other speaker I've heard lately.

If conservative, constitutional government is to win in the U.S., it needs a Dream Team that draws together all our different forces at once, so everyone is on board. It needs a leader who plans to bring together numerous champions onto one ticket when elected. What do you think?

Vice president: Alan West
Secretary of Treasury: Rand Paul
Secretary of Energy: Sarah Palin
Secretary of Labor: Scott Walker
Secy. of Commerce: Herman Cain
Secy. of State: John Bolton
Ambassador to the U.N.: No one
Secy. of Health and Human Services: Dr. Ben Carson
Attorney General: Mark Levin
Secretary of Education: David Barton
Everybody gets something.

You might make substitutions on the team, but you get the idea.
Everyone can't run for president, but the president can promote an inclusive team.
Some of those departments have to go? Sure. But deal with now.
Would you be motivated for a team like that?

Don't put all your eggs in one basket, Louden says, spread your risk,
get everybody involved, motivate the whole team. It's an interesting plan.

Get a big base of real conservatives, constitutionalists, libertarians, tea-party activists bubbling up, unhappy and ready to do something -- unify the whole base with those leaders folks and who's going to stop you? No one. So that's my advice from a Kiwi from the other side of the world folks.

Because I love this country. And more than that, this country has to survive for my country to survive. [He later pointed out that Communist China's huge army has plans for conquest of the entire Pacific Rim, leaked by a defecting officer; his tiny island nation and all the others, Australia included, are dangling by a thread protected only by America's dwindling might; and that our shrinking military, weakened deliberately by Obama, is the greatest threat the free world has ever faced; China knows this and is biding its time.]

I love what America has done for the world, and America has not yet seen its finest hour. But it can only happen if you unify and pick the right team; you cannot afford another weak candidate. Do not let the media pick your team or Carl Rove pick your candidate. You have to do it.

See him deliver this thought-provoking, rousing speech:
