You Get a Pretty Good Idea Who Was ‘Friendly’ with Harvey Weinstein (Video)

Do you ever wonder to yourself who exactly were the starry-eyed wannabe starlets that the disgusting pig Harvey Weinstein forced himself on? I know I have.

But we may never know the identities of every woman and girl (and guy?) who this truly despicable excuse for a human being forced himself on.

Now this may be presumptuous of me, but I honestly believe that at least some of those who willingly traded their virtue and dignity for just to get their ticket punched to fame and fortune, well… suffice it to say that none of us should be surprised to see these human cockroaches crawl off their dungheap to sing the praises of Weinstein.

Interestingly enough, the Business Insider recently published at least a partial listing of Hollywood royalty who “thanked” Weinstein for being such a warm and wonderful human being;

  • Gwyneth Paltrow – Paltrow thanked Weinstein during her acceptance speech for her first Academy Award win in 1999. Paltrow won the award for best actress for her performance in “Shakespeare in Love.” “I would like to thank Harvey Weinstein, and everyone at Miramax films for their undying support of me,” Paltrow said.
  • Jennifer Lawrence – In her 2013 Golden Globe acceptance speech for best actress, Lawrence said, “Harvey, thank you for killing whoever you had to kill to get me up here today.” The award was for her role in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Lawrence also won an Oscar for the same role that year.
  • Renée Zellweger – As Zellweger thanked her “friends at Miramax for making this film, especially Harvey,” during her Oscar speech in 2004. Zellweger won the award for best supporting actress for her performance in “Cold Mountain.”
  • Meryl Streep – “I want to thank God: Harvey Weinstein. The punisher. Old Testament, I guess,” Streep said while accepting the Golden Globe for her role in “The Iron Lady.”

Liberal Press Furious: Buddhist Monks Slams Islam, ‘Animals Who Eat with Their Asses’

The Western press usually gets all weak in the knees when it comes to Buddhism, but not since the Venerable  Ashin Wirathu expressed some very unpopular opinions regarding the so-called Religion of Peace.to the

Everyone from The Guardian to The Australian to MSN.com to something called Medium.com (which calls for an end of “Western injustices against Muslims“) to the once honorable Time magazine (who refers to the monk as “The face of Buddhist terror”) are all shedding crocodile tears over Wirathu’s condemnation of Islam in the Southeast nation Myanmar.

Formerly known as Burma, the Myanmar government finds itself knee-deep in a jihadist insurgency fomented by the nation’s Rohingya Muslim minority.

Rarely reported are instances such as when a Rohinga imam Nazir Hossain preached to local jihadis preparing to launch a sneak attack on a police station, “As imam, I encouraged them never to step back from their mission. I told them that if they did not fight to the death, the military would come and kill their families, their women and their children.”

But back to Ven. Wirathu – he upset the apple cart by publicly stating that;

Rohingya Muslims as “animals who eat with their asses.”

“Do these animals [Rohinga Muslims] eat with their asses when they have meals?” Wirathu asked a large group of supporters. “For example, do they put their rice into their bottoms instead of their mouths? When they go to toilets, do they invert their asses and excrete from their mouths?”

He added that Rohinga Muslims are “beasts, who are opposite to all in everything, and are claiming they are natives of Myanmar.” And in earlier sermons has warned Muslims “target innocent Burmese girls and rape them.”

Hollywood Self-Destructs: George Clooney Accused of Helping to ‘Blacklist’ Latina Actress

UPDATE: Marquez response to Clooney’s denial –

Undoubtedly, the first lookout aboard the Titanic to spot the legendary iceberg thought it nothing more than a mere icecube.

In the same vein, the Harvey Weinstein meteoric fall from grace could be synonymous to that very same icecube.

In what may very well be the iceberg-in-your-face realization that the entertainment industry really is a cesspool of depravity and hypocrisy, Los Angeles native Vanessa Marquez was a regular for the first three seasons of the NBC super-hit ER, but has since reminded the world how Hollywood turned on her after calling them out years ago.

As reported by Charlie Nash of Breitbart.com, Marquez is calling out Hollywood royalty George Clooney for blacklisting her for calling out both sexual and racial harassment;

George Clooney has been accused of helping “blacklist” an actress after she complained of sexual and racial harassment.

“Clooney helped blacklist me when I spoke up [about] harassment on ER,” claimed ERVanessa_Marquez actress Vanessa Marquez in a post on Twitter. “Women who dont play the game lose career… I did.”

“He’s not who he pretends [to be],” added Marquez in another post. “Wells, NBC, Amblin, WB, cast & crew & my agents all complicit in my #Blacklist [for] speaking UP in ’95”

After one user expressed their shock that Clooney would be accused of covering up
sexual harassment, Marquez replied, “He’s a monster in his own way… Everyone should know The Truth About Clooney.”

Marquez also accused actor Eriq La
Salle and crew member Terence Nightingall of being “pussy grabbers,” and claimed cast members Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle, and Julianna Margulies racially harassed her.

Following dozens of sexual abuse allegations against Hollywood producer and Democratic Party donor Harvey Weinstein, Clooney expressed disgust, calling his actions “indefensible.”

“It’s indefensible. That’s the only word you can start with,” he declared. “Harvey’s admitted to it, and it’s indefensible. I’ve known Harvey for 20 years. He gave me my first big break as an actor in films on From Dusk Till Dawn, he gave me my first big break as a director with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. We’ve had dinners, we’ve been on location together, we’ve had arguments. But I can tell you that I’ve never seen any of this behavior—ever.”

Update: Clooney has issued a statement denying he had any influence over the direction of Marquez’s career.

“I had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted. I take her at her word,” Clooney said, according to age Six.

“I was not a writer or a producer or a director on that show. I had nothing to do with casting. I was an actor and only an actor. If she was told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. The fact that I couldn’t affect her career is only surpassed by the fact that I wouldn’t. “

Long rumored of being a not-so-closeted homosuxual, the notoriously pro-sodomite Huffington Post covered the topic i9n the video below, complete with alleged “proof” from Clooney’s good friend, the now disgraced Matt Damon;

Tell it to the Marines: General Kelly Tells of the Best Job He Ever Had

I’ll admit it – I love Gen Kelly. I love him as a father-figure, as a strong national leader, as a true role model in every sense of the word.

But what I admire most about the man is his strength of character. Specifically, his sense of humility.

Just listen to the general as he describes;

  1. The hardest job he’s ever had.
  2. The most important job he’s ever had.
  3. The best job he’s ever had.

America needs more like John Kelly, and a helluva lot less of the likes of Rahm Emanuel.

Britain draws up war plans against Kim Jung-un

I remember once hearing in passing, “As long as we have Britain, Australia, and Canada on our side, the rest of the world can go to hell.”

In light of the nuclear threat aimed directly at the United States and our allies in East Asia and the Western Pacific, we should add Japan and South Korea to that list.

But other than us, the Japanese and the South Koreans, no other nation has, at least publicly, openly declared military cooperation with the Washington-Tokyo-Seoul alliance.

That is, until now.

In recent reports by the Daily Mail and The Telegraph, the Brits are drawing up war plans against North Korea, to include the distinct possibility of deploying the recently commissioned HMS Queen Elizabeth to the Far East.

As the  Daily Mail noted;

The Armed Forces are preparing for a potential war with North Korea, sources have revealed.

Officials have been instructed to draw up plans for how Britain would respond if war broke out with Pyongyang amid heightening tensions between the West and dictator Kim Jong-Un.

One option involves deploying Britain’s new aircraft carrier – due to be handed over to the Navy later this year – to the region before she has undergone flight trials.

Details of the secret operation plan have emerged after Donald Trump warned that ‘only one thing will work’ when it comes to dealing with North Korea, which has continued nuclear and rocket tests despite widespread condemnation.

The Telegraph also cited;

Among the plans disclosed by the Daily Mail is the deployment of the Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, before it has undergone flight trials.

“We have plenty of ships to send… the Type-45 destroyers, the Type-23 frigates. Britain’s new aircraft carrier could be pressed into service early if things turn south,” a senior Whitehall source told the newspaper.

HMS Queen Elizabeth, which arrived at its home in Portsmouth in August after extensive sea trials, is not due to enter service until 2020.

The possible move to deploy it ahead of schedule drew comparisons with the start of the Falklands War.

“In the Falklands we had to react to an event and HMS Illustrious was accelerated to respond,” a Navy source told the Mail.

“This was a reaction to protect British territory, however. In this case [North Korea], the UK would be part of a united global coalition. We would see what support we could give.”

Bigot Homosexual Coffee Shop Owner in Foul-Mouthed Attack Against Pro-Lifers (Video)

It’s often said that so-called “gay” men are often the most unhappy, angry and miserable of all God’s creatures.

The recent display of alleged gay acceptance and tolerance in a Seattle coffee shop very well says it all.

As reported by Amber Randall of The Daily Caller; (Warning: Offensive language)

A gay Seattle coffee shop owner kicked a group of Christians out of his coffee shop Sunday, after declaring he would “f*ck Christ in the ass.”

The owner heatedly tells the Christians to leave his shop immediately in a video posted to Facebook by Abolish Human Abortion, a Christian group seeking to end the practice of abortion.

“I’m gay, you have to leave,” the owner tells the group. “This is offensive to me. I own the place. I have the right to be offended.”

bump stock

You’ll Never Guess Whose Administration Authorized ‘Bump Stocks’

I’ve never even heard the phrase “bump stock” until Washington Democrats started screaming about the firearm accessory in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting.

While party politicians ranging from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) to Sen. Bernie Sanders (Soc-NH) have been hyperventilating for legislation to ensure bump stocks will never be sold to the general public, the same partisan politicos certainly seem to have come down with collective cases of amnesia.

As reported by Awr Hawkins of the Breitbart.com news portal, it was actually the Barack Obama Administration that authorized that particular piece of equipment back in 2010;

While bump stocks are taking criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike, it is interesting to note that the devices were approved for sale in 2010 by Barack Obama’s ATF.

The ATF approved the devices because they do not convert a semiautomatic rifle into an automatic. Rather, they are an accessory that allows semiautomatic rifle owners to mimic automatic fire for short bursts.

According to the Washington Post, Rick Vasquez, the ATF official who signed off on non-regulation for bump stocks, described them as “a goofy, little doodad.” This squares with the Breitbart News report that bump stocks “are for novelty, not accuracy.” They are devices that allow bursts of rapid fire but are unpredictable because the gun’s buffer tube can bounce around or bobble inside the device, making jams and inconsistent fire patterns likely.

Vasquez, a former Marine, put is this way: “[Bump stocks are] for those guys who want to look like super ninja when they’re out on the range — they’re the people my peer group makes fun of. If you want a machine gun, join the Marines.”

Lost in Vasquez’s humor is the fact that not everyone will join the Marines and very few people can afford their own machine gun, with prices starting at roughly $15,000. So a bump stock is a $200 substitute that allows cash-strapped citizens to mimic real machine guns on the cheap.

But bump-stocks may be facing an uphill battle, as Sen Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is calling for a ban on the devices and numerous GOP Senators–including John Cornyn and John Thune–admit unfamiliarity with the devices yet still express openness to a hearing on a ban. Moreover, Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX) made clear his belief that “typical gun owners” do not need bump stock devices.

As seen in the video below, the bump stock mimics the rapid fire capability of an automatic weapon by using an automatic’s own kinetic energy caused by the round’s primer expliding coupled with the weapon’s recoil on the buffer spring.

As noted by the non-partisan Popular Mechanics magazine;

Bump stocks are simple pieces of equipment that replace the stock of a rifle and add a small “support step” in front of the trigger. The shooter rests his finger on this step and pulls forward on the barrel or forward grip to press the trigger against his finger. The recoil of the shot then propels the rifle backwards into a gap in stationary stock where the loose fit gives the rifle freedom to bounce forward. This, along with sustained forward pressure on the rifle, has the effect of ‘bumping’ the trigger back into the shooter’s unmoving finger. So long as a shooter maintains forward pressure, the rifle will continue to fire at a rate much faster than could be accomplished with even the quickest possible series of manual trigger pulls.

Bump fire stock in action.

Yahoo News Poll: Fans turn against NFL in overwhelming numbers

Call it payback, divine retribution, karma… call it what you will, but in a recent poll by Yahoo Finance, the NFL honchos move to align themselves with the anti-American, pro-Colin Kaepernick elements within the league have just seen seen their efforts blast back in their collective faces.

In what Yahoo Finance contributor Rick Newman referred to as both an “existential” and an “enduring” problem, Roger Goodell’s business plan may need another look.

In a poll of 12,500 interviewed;

  • Nearly 62% of 9,056 respondents told us they plan to watch less pro football in response to the anthem controversy
  • Thirty-six percent said they plan to buy less NFL merchandise
  • Thirty-two percent have chosen not to attend a game they would otherwise have gone to
  • Slightly over 77 percent feel it’s wrong for players to kneel during the National Anthem
  • The controversy made 53 percent more supportive of President Trump, while less than 20 percent feel less supportive

Regarding how they would feel if the players and team owners experience “lasting financial harm”;

  • It would bum me out 10.21%
  • I wouldn’t care 30.12%
  • I would be pleased 47.20%

Conflicting Reports: Tom Petty Dead at 66

Reports are sketchy at best, but the word out of Los Angeles is that Rock legend Tom Petty is dead at the age of 66.

Amid retractions, updates and speculation, Billboard magazine is reporting that the news of Petty’s death is figuratively all over the map;

Tom Petty was put on life support Monday (Oct. 2) after suffering cardiac arrest, and conflicting reports now say that he has died at the age of 66. CBS News’ breaking news tweet citing LAPD has since been deleted. The LAPD later tweeted out an apology: “The LAPD has no information about the passing of singer Tom Petty. Initial information was inadvertantly [sic] provided to some media sources. However, the LAPD has no investigative role in this matter. We apologize for any inconvenience in this reporting.”

Earlier in the day, Petty was found in his Malibu home in full cardiac arrest, not breathing. Authorities told The Hollywood Reporter they did respond to a Malibu home around 10:52 a.m. for a man who suffered a heart attack, but they could not confirm it was Petty. Emergency responders were able to get a pulse back, but the man is in critical condition. He was then rushed to the hospital.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers just wrapped their 40th anniversary tour at the Hollywood Bowl last week.

Is Taking a Knee Really Showing Disrespect to the Troops?

The latest mania sweeping liberal America is this “taking a knee” nonsense at everything from NFL games to Pee Wee football. Ostensibly performed as a sign of protest regarding racist (white) cops gunning down black males on a regular basis.

However, as the New York Post recently reported, the truth is far for the narrative perpetuated by the likes of Colin Kaepernick and Black Lives Matter;

Who is killing these black victims? Not whites, and not the police, but other blacks.

In 2016, the police fatally shot 233 blacks, the vast majority armed and dangerous, according to the Washington Post. The paper categorized only 16 black male victims of police shootings as “unarmed.” That classification masks assaults against officers and violent resistance to arrest.

Contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police have much more to fear from black males than black males have to fear from the police. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer.

Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers — committed vastly and disproportionately by black males.

But now that the light of truth has been shone on the liars on the left, let’s get back to the topic at hand.

As I recently covered, Jesse Benn (a proud Communist) from the reliably America-hating Huffington Post, opined that white NFL players who stood for the Star Spangled Banner are actually standing in defense of white supremacy.

Or as Benn so eruditely notes;

We’ve all heard the typical argument against kneeling. “Kneeling during the anthem disrespects the flag and the soldiers who fought for your right to protest and blah blah blah patriotism!”

Now, I’m not going to spend much time with the most obvious counter, but it’s worth stating. In the fairytale we Americans tell ourselves where soldiers fight wars for freedom and not imperial conquests, the story says they’re fighting for someone’s right to protest, not the opposite. So using the troops as a cudgel against protest wholly misunderstands even our own national fairytale.

Obviously this yutz, along with Kaepernick, BLM and the entire Democratic Party never bothered to ever listen to the National Anthem.

We_Owe_Allegiance_To_No_Crown

Imagine being a young American soldier stationed at Baltimore Harbor’s Ft. McHenry during the Second War of American Independence (aka: The War of 1812). You and your fellow soldiers have been shelled all night by eight of the massive bombardment ships of the Royal Navy.

Rockets red glare, bombs bursting in air, all the heroic words. Of course, minus the madness of knowing that you could be ripped to shreds at any moment in a very painful and agonizing death that was rarely instantaneous.

Every time one of the Royal Navy’s Congreve rockets exploded, the American soldiers, sailors, Marines, militiamen, citizens and slaves of Baltimore (yes, slaves willingly helped erect and fortify the defenses) who spent the night erecting ramparts to the east of the city to fight off the impending British land invasion, well… with every flash of light they looked to Ft McHenry to see if the Stars and Stripes were still flying over the fort.

As dawn broke, Francis Scott Key, Esq., the people of Baltimore, the American troops both in the fort and in Baltimore, and all of those in His Majesty’s Service saw that it wasn’t the British Union Jack, but the flag of the United States of America that was snapping in the wind.

With that bit of reality done with, please read the words carefully while you follow along with the Marine Band;

O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bomb bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

 

The story of the defense of Ft. McHenry.

Huffington Post: White NFL Players Who Stand for Anthem ‘Stand for White Supremacy’

The Huffington Post op-ed writer who touts himself as Dad, partner, engaged citizen, opinionated writer, leftist, PhD student, can add another add another descriptive title to his pedigree: Dumb-ass.

As Jesse Benn of the decidedly hard leftist Huffington Post recently opined;

The absence of white athletes kneeling for the anthem Sunday was a particularly illustrative moment in white privilege.

See, for white athletes the anthem and American flag do represent freedom, liberty and whatever other amorphous American values one might ascribe these symbols. So, from their view, kneeling would be disrespectful to the privileges a white supremacist nation affords them.

Notice the very first word in the second paragraph? “See”.

Ever the pencil-necked liberal, Benn made a point of:

  1. Looking down his nose at us simpletons to explain to us why any given player of the Caucasian persuasion who has the bad manners to actually stand for the Star Spangled Banner and place his hand over his heart is actually a closeted cross burner.
  2. In a largely wasted effort, Benn takes a stab at proving how much smarter he is than the rest of us.

Ahh… but then comes the height of Leftist arrogance (emphasis mine);

We’ve all heard the typical argument against kneeling. “Kneeling during the anthem disrespects the flag and the soldiers who fought for your right to protest and blah blah blah patriotism!

Now, I’m not going to spend much time with the most obvious counter, but it’s worth stating. In the fairytale we Americans tell ourselves where soldiers fight wars for freedom and not imperial conquests, the story says they’re fighting for someone’s right to protest, not the opposite. So using the troops as a cudgel against protest wholly misunderstands even our own national fairytale.

So, that’s obvious enough, but what I’m talking about is this. If white athletes can’t fathom kneeling because they feel soldiers fought for their rights and blah blah blah patriotism, it’s because they are treated as full citizens and afforded those rights they imagine soldiers fought for.

Initially, did anyone notice any uniformed goons dragging Benn out of his undoubtedly comfortable bed in the middle of the night to lock him up in some far off American gulag?

Neither did I.

Secondly, why didn’t someone tell me that I, like my father before me, am nothing more than a baby killer? I don’t remember killing any babies, neither did my father.

Ach… silly me. Benn’s smarter than the rest of of. (*Slapping forehead* What was I thinking!?)

But if the name Jesse Benn rings a bell, it should. He’s the guy with a history of calling for organized violence aimed at those who disagree with him.

As reported last June by the Washington Free Beacon;

HuffPost writer Jesse Benn tweeted Wednesday that violent resistance must be organized to work.

Benn wrote that violent resistance needed to be organized and that individual acts of resistance were “counterproductive/ineffective,” but still understandable.

This is not the first time Benn has advocated for violence. Benn wrote a June 2016 article titled, “Sorry Liberals, a Violent Response to Trump Is as Logical as Any.” In the article, Benn said there was value in violently resisting the “normalizing” of then-candidate Donald Trump.

“In the face of media, politicians, and GOP primary voters normalizing Trump as a presidential candidate—whatever your personal beliefs regarding violent resistance—there’s an inherent value in forestalling Trump’s normalization,” Benn wrote. “Violent resistance accomplishes this.”

Speaking of Benn’s Twitter account, how do you like the last symbol at the end of his bio?

Raising a rebel. Married to #1 mom. Sporadic writer. Member of the Tribe. PhD student. No war but class war. Eat the rich. ☭

Here’s also an example of Benn’s alleged sense of humor (notice the hammer and sickle dead-center of the cartoon);

And if by chance you’re on the fence regarding Comrade Benn, this is what he tweeted in the wake of the assassination attempt on Congressman Steve Scalise;

What a charmer.

We all know that many, and I mean MANY, members of the NFL are among this nation’s über-rich. Along that train of thought, many, and I mean MANY, members of the NFL have become quite enamoured with “taking a knee” during the playing of our National Anthem, while a number of other players think themselves the modern-day Rosa Parks based on nothing more than raising the clenched-fist black power salute.

Remember the old says when you had to actually do something to be considered a civil rights incon?

Anyhow, just to keep things in perspective regarding those poor, suffering footballers, let’s do a side-by-side comparison between the National Football League and the Canadian Football League.

Wait. Let’s kick it up a notch. How about we instead do a side-by-side-by-side comparison between the National Football League, the NFL practice squads (also known as: The Practice Dummies), and then finally the pros from The Great White North.

Minimum salary:

  • National Football League – $465,000
  • NFL practice squads – $7,200 per week (During a 17-week schedule: Sixteen game plus one bye week equals $122,400 for 17 weeks of work.)
  • Canadian Football League – $53,000 (But in all fairness, that’s in Canadian dollars. So I’m not sure if that’s equal to a butt-load of money or more like a buck fiddy.)

ad_230400474

What the hell… the world was suppose to end and nobody told me? Pretty devastating, especially for someone with low self-esteem like me.

But my personal insecurities notwithstanding, did you know the world was suppose to end this past week-end?

I know, I know. Nuclear war with North Korea; spoiled multi-millionaire football players bitching about how horrible life in America is; Hillary’s still drunk and wandering through the woods, blah, blah, blah, wonk, wonk, wonk.

Important as the above listed topics/calamities are, they pale in comparison to planet Earth playing stellar bumper cars with Planet X or Planet Scooby-Doo or whatever the hell it’s called.

As reported by News Corp Australia;

THE world didn’t come to an end this weekend despite a prophecy that heralded the arrival of Doomsday. But we’re not out of the woods yet.

Conspiracy theorist David Meade prophesied a mysterious “Planet X” — also known as Planet Nibiru — with no gravity would crash into the Earth on September 23, ending life as we know it.
But as the date drew near, the Christian numerologist got cold feet and said the prediction was misunderstood.

Based on verses and numerical codes in the Bible, he’s now claiming Doomsday will arrive on October 21.
The day before he foretold the apocalyptic prophecy, Meade said he expects “nothing to happen in September”, according to The Washington Post.

Instead, he claimed the Book of Revelation will manifest that day, leading to a series of catastrophic events that will happen over the course of weeks.

“The world is not ending, but the world as we know it is ending,” he told The Post, adding: “A major part of the world will not be the same the beginning of October.”
Meade told Fox 13 Salt Lake City that “seven years” of war and disaster will begin on October 21.

Space agency NASA has dismissed the Planet X theory as a hoax.

“Various people are ‘predicting’ that (the) world will end Sept. 23 when another planet collides with Earth,” NASA said. “The planet in question, Niburu, doesn’t exist, so there will be no collision.”

NASA also stated the “story of Niburu has been around for years, as has the ‘days of darkness’ tale and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables.”

Gen Kelly fires back at Democrat Luis ‘Kelly is a Disgrace to the Uniform’ Gutierrez

John Kelly has been many things in his life; a Marine Corps officer, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Chief-of-Staff for the President of the United States, just to name a few.

But what most Americans don’t know about about General Kelly and his wife, Karen, is that they are both Gold Star parents. They lost their son, 1st Lt. Robert Michael Kelly, USMC, who was killed in combat operations in Afghanistan.

Nonetheless, a certain pip squeak of a politician has taken it upon himself to publicly insult Kelly, as reported by Fox News;

In a statement last Tuesday, [Rep. Luis] Gutierrez said Kelly “has no honor and should be drummed out of the White House along with the white supremacists and those enabling the President’s actions by ‘just following orders.’”

Never serving as much as even a reservist’s weekend duty, the congressman representing the 4th Congressional District, nicknamed “Chiraq” due to the death and destruction that normally follows Democrats in charge, Gutierrez is ostensibly lashing out at President Trump’s adherence to the Constitution in regards to giving Congress a six-month time frame to legislate a solution to Barack Obama’s temporary immigration fix popularly known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).

Predictably, Gutierrez offered up zero proof of Kelly being a supposed “white supremacist.” On the contrary, common sense dictates that during Kelly’s 42-years of military service, he regularly entrusted his very life to fellow Marines of every race, creed, color and religion.

But being a man of honor, Kelly has responded to Gutierrez’s slanderous and factless tirade;

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly fired back at a prominent House Democrat who called him a “disgrace to the uniform,” in the Gold Star father and retired Marine Corps general’s first public response to the personal attack on his service.

Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez had leveled the criticism at Kelly over his support of President Trump’s decision to end a controversial program that shielded young illegal immigrants from deportation.

In an email to Fox News late Sunday, Kelly responded by saying Congress did “nothing” to help so-called Dreamers when they had the chance.

“As far as the congressman and other irresponsible members of congress are concerned, they have the luxury of saying what they want as they do nothing and have almost no responsibility,” Kelly said. “They can call people liars but it would be inappropriate for me to say the same thing back at them. As my blessed mother used to say ‘empty barrels make the most noise.’”

He concluded, “The congressman has a right to his opinion.”

Proving that his comrade in arms, Gen. James “Chaos” Mattis isn’t the only quotable person in the Trump Administration, Trump’s C-o-S made headlines during the historic assault on Baghdad when he informed a nervous Los Angeles Times reporter who thought the heavily outnumbered Marines just may face defeat when they launched their offensive against the heavily defended Iraqi capital city;

“Hell these are Marines. Men like them held Guadalcanal and took Iwo Jima. Baghdad ain’t sh*t.”

No Evidence or Police Report: Maxine Waters Claims Conservatives ‘Want to Kill Me’

"Gasoline" Maxine in the attack mode.
“Gasoline” Maxine in the attack mode.

Without offering up anything as proof, evidence, or even a police report, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) accused the Breitbart.com news service, among many others, of wanting to kill the Los Angeles Democrat.

As reported by Pam Key of Breitbart;

Wednesday at a House Financial Services Committee hearing on lone-wolf and small-scale terrorist attacks, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) lumped Breitbart News in with white nationalists and other people who she claimed were seeking her demise.

Waters said, “I’m worried about these domestic attacks. As a matter of fact, I was forced to focus on it a little bit yesterday when in my office in Los Angeles one of the people opening the mail opened an envelope, and a bunch of powder fell out with a note about me dying and killing Hillary Clinton and on and on and on. This is getting more frequent, and I know that we have privacy concerns and information sharing and all that.”

She continued, “But I’m wondering what can we do to get a handle, a fix on these lone killers, and not simply just say we throw our hands up and we can’t really do anything because of privacy concerns. And I’m wondering particularly in our finical institutes and banks if questionnaires that do not invade privacy but simply ask questions about what the intentions are for the uses of certain money under certain circumstances. And these people can say whatever they want to, and they can respond in whatever way they want to, but if resources are used to go and commit killings they will have lied on the questionnaire and perhaps that can trigger some kind of actions to begin to prevent this kind of domestic terrorism.”

She added, “I think we should focus on domestic terrorism also. So I would like to ask again, given all that you have said about how difficult it is and about privacy concerns, do you have any thoughts about what can we do to begin to deal with the KKK, the white nationalists, the extremists, the alt-right? They’re on the Internet; they’re Breitbart. If you look at the YouTube, you see how much they want to kill me and others. What can we do?”

President Trump to Donate $1 Million to Harvey Relief

Donald Trump

President Trump may not be the first president to accept only $1 a year as the nation’s Commander-in-Chief (Herbert Hoover and John Kennedy also took a mere buck per annum), but he may be the quickest on the draw to contribute a rather large chunk of change to assist victims of a natural disaster.

As reported by Jonathan Easley of the everything political The Hill, The Donald is kicking-in a cool $1 million to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort;

President Trump plans to donate $1 million for victims of the historic floods and rains that have devastated the Gulf region, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday.

But this isn’t the first time that the president has made headlines for his philanthropy. In spite of the Never Trump media (notably, the rabidly anti-Trump Washington Post) making up news as they went along, Candidate Trump really did raise millions of dollars earmarked for a number of various charities that specialized in assisting veterans.

As unbelievable as it sounds, the reliably liberal NPR (National Public Radio) set the record straight on the ton of cash Trump raised for the oft forgotten veterans of the Armed Forces;

At least $1.9 million of the donations to veterans groups that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump reported on Tuesday came in last week, after Trump began responding to intense media scrutiny of his earlier claims about raising in excess of $6 million for veterans. Trump said on Tuesday that his efforts raised a total of $5.6 million.

NPR reached out to all 41 of the groups Trump listed as receiving donations. Of those, 31 responded. One group, the Navy SEAL Foundation, said it does not disclose details of its donations. The other 30 confirmed the amounts Trump reported Tuesday, accounting for $4.27 million of the $5.6 million total.

The donations came in from a combination of sources, including the Donald J. Trump Foundation, various groups and individuals who cited Trump’s efforts along with their donations, and Trump himself.

The candidate gave a $1 million check to the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation on May 24, as questions from the Washington Post and other news outlets about Trump’s prior claims regarding these donations accelerated.

But back to the Trump announcement that he’ll contribute $1 million to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort, the White House toyed with the media much like a cat does a mouse prior to killing it.

As White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during today’s press briefing;

Trump has not finalized what group the money will go to, and the White House said it would solicit ideas from the press corps, taking a dig at those who have fervently researched and questioned past donations Trump has made or claimed to make.

“He’s actually asked that I check with the folks in this room since you are very good at research and have been doing a lot of reporting into the groups and organizations that have the best and most effective in helping and providing aid and he would love some suggestions from the folks here and I would be happy to take them,” Sanders said in the White House press briefing room.

Pro-Abortion Tomi Lahren Hired by Fox News

maxresdefault

Tomi Lahren: “Stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body”

Tomi is hot. There’s simply no two ways about it. As my Spanish speaking friends say; that girl’s en fuego.

Tomi is also quite the incendiary political commentator. Again with the whole en fuego thing.

The facts that Tomi Lahren is physically attractive as well as quite adept in the art of verbally stirring-up political passions aren’t in question. What is in question here is Lahren’s conservative street cred.

As reported by the Associated Press via the Breitbart.com news portal, the cable news powerhouse, the Fox News Channel has just hired on Lahren as… achem, a “conservative” political commentator.

As reported;

Fox News Channel has hired conservative commentator Tomi Lahren, who has hosted shows on The Blaze and One America News Network along with working for a political action committee supporting President Donald Trump.

The network said on Wednesday that Lahren will have a “signature role” on a digital product under development and be a commentator on the network’s opinion programming. Her primary home will be on Sean Hannity’s show, where she was to debut on Wednesday.

Lahren, who is 25, has quickly achieved a high profile in the conservative movement following her graduation from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She has more than 4 million Facebook followers, and she produces her own videos with commentary on politics and culture.

However, what the Associated Press failed to mention is that there happens to be a certain conservative topic that Lahren has long since ago abandoned: Being pro-life.

In a bit of a stunner, Lahren gave somewhat of a shock to the conservative world when she boldly proclaimed on the screamingly liberal Monday through Friday panel show The View: “Stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body.”

As reported by The Washington Post last March;

Tomi Lahren, the 24-year-old conservative host of the show “Tomi” on the Blaze, has fiercely criticized the feminist movement. In her trademark fast-talking rants, the commentator has called modern-day feminists selfish, man-hating “snowflakes” and said that “real women don’t wake up and skip work to march for abortions.”

Lahren, an avid Trump supporter, has been called incendiary. It is not unusual for her appearances to incite outrage from the left. But over the weekend, her words provoked fury from an unlikely segment of Americans: the right.

Appearing on “The View” on Friday, Lahren admitted that she supports abortion rights, saying it would be hypocritical of her to believe the government should decide what women should do with their bodies.

“You know what? I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well,” Lahren said.

But the provocative commentator defended herself, tweeting Saturday, “Listen, I am not glorifying abortion. I don’t personally advocate for it. I just don’t think it’s the government’s place to dictate.”

“I speak my truth,” she added on Twitter. “If you don’t like it, tough. I will always be honest and stand in my truth.”

“Conservatives don’t have to exist in a monolith and share the same brain on every issue,” Lahren tweeted. “It’s okay.”

‘Marry Your Rapist’ Laws Still on the Books in Middle East

Marry your rapist.
Marry your rapist.

What to do with a rapist… especially a child rapist? In the good old days, they were simply executed. But that was before America became “civilized” regarding the proper disposition of of some of the more vile and violent that walk among us.

But unlike a number of predominantly Muslim nations, at least we don’t give any given rapist the opportunity to get away with their crime by simply marrying their victim(s).

While civil libertarians, women’s rights groups and victim’s advocacy organizations here in the West have long accused the Muslim World of treating women little better than livestock or beasts of burden, at least a handful have technically dropped the “marry your rapist” get out of jail free card from their respective criminal codes.

As covered by Elspeth Dehnert of the women-centered News Deeply portal, the Muslim nations of Jordan, Lebanon and Tunisia have stricken all the marry your rapist provisions from their secular law canons;

Jordan’s lower house of Parliament voted to repeal Article 308. Two weeks later, Lebanon abolished its own “marry-your-rapist” law, Article 522. In July, Tunisia had done the same by repealing Article 227.

As reporter Dehnert cited, the change in the rape laws in Jordan just may have come too late for a girl Dehnert referred to as “Aya” to protect her identity, as well as any future acts of violent retribution that is, unfortunately, the norm in many Muslim majority nations;

When Aya was 15, she was forced to marry the 24-year-old man who had raped her.

Her family agreed to the arrangement so that her rapist could evade jail time, and they could avoid a “scandal.” But after months of further abuse from her husband, Aya had enough. She decided to file for divorce and speak out about her situation.

“I’m a girl who was raped,” she wrote in an anonymous letter to the Jordanian Parliament and local media. “It’s clear to me now that he only wanted the marriage in order to leave prison and get rid of the sentence.”

Aya’s rapist had taken advantage of Article 308, a legal loophole that allowed offenders to be set free if they married their victims.

Three long years later is when the Jordanian lower house of their Parliament finally acted on behalf of the women and girls who have absolutely no say-so when it comes to legitimizing the same criminal who violated them to begin with.

As Dehnert also took note of;

As the laws tumble throughout the region, activists are hoping this forward momentum will pressure other countries to follow in their footsteps.

“Hopefully, this is a domino effect,” Equality Now’s legal equality program manager, Antonia Kirkland, says. “There are some Gulf states, like Bahrain and Kuwait, which have this type of law, and we hope they’ll be next.”

Other nearby countries with “marry-your-rapist” laws include Palestine, Iraq, Syria and Algeria.

But despite the victim-bride *technically* being off the hook from wedding her assailant, Dehnert cites an often deadly Catch-22 the women and girls find themselves in;

“Unfortunately, in practice, it seems like this might still be happening whether or not it’s on the books,” Kirkland says. “Law enforcement or authorities are not going to implement the law if they see that the family wants the girl and the rapist to be married.”

For some families, exposing their daughter’s rape to the public gaze by prosecuting the rapist means risking social shame – a consequence that can sometimes lead to them killing her in the name of family honor. Marriage is the easier, more private solution.
