Obama Administration Calls Bibi a Chickenshit (Updated)

The difference between Obama and Netanyahu could not be more polar opposite. Obama got where he is because he is a liar - a black liar. And that characterizes his entire administration, which embodies a black, lying. Netanyahu, on the other hand, is a man, who is characterized by his manhood. Which individual actually is the chickenshit?

UPDATE:
From Ben Shapiro:
"So, if this administration WERE Jew-hating, what exactly would they be doing differently?"

Abortion and It's Consequences In An Atheist Society

TRENDING: More college students support post-birth abortion

"A trend seen by prolife activists that frequently engage college students on campuses nationwide is the growing acceptance of post-birth abortion, or killing the infant after he or she is born, campus prolife outreach leaders tell The College Fix.

Anecdotal evidence by leaders of prolife groups such as Created Equal and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust said in interviews that not only do they see more college students willing to say they support post-birth abortion, but some students even suggest children up to 4 or 5-years-old can also be killed, because they are not yet “self aware.”

“We encounter people who think it is morally acceptable to kill babies after birth on a regular basis at almost every campus we visit,” said Mark Harrington, director of Created Equal. “While this viewpoint is still seen as shocking by most people, it is becoming increasingly popular.”

Campuses where the high school, college students, local activists and staff members of Created Equal have encountered this opinion include Purdue, University of Minnesota, and University of Central Florida. And at Ohio State earlier this year, the group captured a debate on video between one of its members and an older woman on campus who defended infanticide.

“This is the whole problem with devaluing human life at any stage—it will naturally grow to include other groups of humans; in this case, born humans as well as preborn humans,” Harrington said. “[I] talked with one young man at the University of Minnesota who thought it was alright to kill children if they were under the age of 5 years old, as he did not consider them persons until that age.”

Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a prolife organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.

For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.

As for the trend, Garza said there’s an explanation for it. For one, the arguments put forth by Peter Singer and other philosophers who support infanticide are given as reading assignments to college students.

Singer wrote in 1979 that “human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons … [therefore] the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.

“He has been saying things like this since the 70s, but I think it has been more recently that this type of ideology is being promoted on college campuses,” Garza said. “When he said this stuff, there was a very select few who accepted it. But nowadays, we have become so desensitized, and college students lacking in a moral fiber easily accept this kind of strange ideology.”"

[emphasis added]
Killing other people who they cheerfully designate as being without "value" or "not persons" or somehow just OK to kill is a special tenet of the Left. Because they have rejected all other moral authority and have assumed all moral authority for themselves, they will be up-defining who can and should be killed as more and more of them are maleducated in the Leftist "education" machine.

I think it's possible that the age will rise to 28 when the AtheoLeft realizes that those under that age are still incomplete in the frontal lobe, and some are objectionable to them. And the old age limit will occur when their "value to society" declines by say, 10% or so.

The numbers don't matter. What matters is the Leftist self-authorization to kill. The mental, emotional and moral corruption involved in that process is dangerous to every human. The Earth has been through all this before, just in the last century. But the education system apparently has erased that knowledge from the minds of those youth who are their subjects.

Plants That Know and React When Being Eaten

This represents information flow to and appropriate action by the receiver of the information... in plants.

Plants Can Tell When They’re Being Eaten [and enable self-defense systems selectively]

"This particular study was on the ever-popular Arabidopsis, specifically the thale cress, easily the most popular plant for experimentation. It’s in the brassica family, closely related to broccoli, kale, mustard greens, and cabbage, though unlike most of its cousins it isn’t very good to eat. This particular plant is so common for experiments because it was the first plant to have its genome sequenced, so scientists understand its inner workings better than almost any other plant.

The researchers were seeking to answer an unusual question: does a plant know when it’s being eaten? To do that, the researchers had to first make a precise audio version of the vibrations that a caterpillar makes as it eats leaves. The theory is that it’s these vibrations that the plant can somehow feel or hear. In addition, the researchers also came up with vibrations to mimic other natural vibrations the plant might experience, like wind noise.

Turns out, the thale cress actually produces some mustard oils and sends them through the leaves to deter predators (the oils are mildly toxic when ingested). And the study showed that when the plants felt or heard the caterpillar-munching vibrations, they sent out extra mustard oils into the leaves. When they felt or heard other vibrations? Nothing. It’s a far more dynamic defense than scientists had realized: the plant is more aware of its surroundings and able to respond than expected.

There’s more research to be done; nobody’s quite sure by what mechanism the plant can actually feel or hear these vibrations, and with so many plants out there, we’re not sure what kind of variation on this behavior there is. But it’s really promising research; there’s even talk of using sound waves to encourage crops to, say, grow faster, or send out specific defenses against attacks. Imagine knowing that a frost is coming, and being able to encourage plants to fruit faster by simply blasting them with music. That’s the kind of crazy sci-fi future this indicates."

Hillary Then and Now

HillaryCare, 1980's:

""I can't be responsible for every undercapitalized entrepreneur in America,"

...Mrs. Clinton said in 1993, responding to charges that her plan would bankrupt businesses and cut employment. Destroy a job through excessive health mandates, she was told, and employees will go from having no health insurance to having no health insurance and no jobs."

Economy, 2014

“Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs,”

...Hillary Clinton told a Massachusetts crowd this week:"
At least she consistently has no clue about business and the economy. And she consistently points that out.
