Only MLB Player to ‘Take a Knee’ Arrested for Pulling Gun on Delivery Girl

Major League Baseball has no hard-and-fast rules regarding how managers, players and staff should conduct themselves during the pre-game playing of the National Anthem, but it’s widely understood that the powers to be at MLB certainly don’t want to see a baseball version of the Colin Kaepernick-inspired wholesale disrespect of the American flag and everything it stands for.

In fact, the closest thing MLB has to a “rule” is;

“While this is not a league rule, the playing of the national anthems of the United States and Canada remains an important tradition that has great meaning to our fans. The playing of ‘God Bless America’ at designated games is a club choice.”

Nonetheless, as everyone knows, it only takes one rabbit turd to ruin the stew. As reported by Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated just last month;

Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first Major League Baseball player to kneel for the national anthem in open protest ahead of Oakland’s home game against the Texas Rangers.

Maxwell, who is African-American and comes from a military family, chose to kneel with his hand on his heart while facing the flag in solidarity with the NFL players who continue to protest racism and inequalities in America.

Hmmm… “racism and inequality”? Just so everyone knows, Maxwell makes $535,000 for six months worth of playing a kid’s game.

Sadly for Maxwell, being the solitary sac à douche in Major League Baseball to take a knee during the Star Spangled Banner quite probably belies some of his lesser qualities.

What? Did you just say that Bruce Maxwell was just busted for pulling a gun on a fast food delivery girl?

Why, yes… yes you did

From the Arizona Central;

Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell was arrested in Scottsdale on Saturday on suspicion of pointing a gun at a woman delivering food.

Sgt. Tyler Johnson, a spokesman for Scottsdale police, said officers responded to a call about 6 p.m. at Maxwell’s Scottsdale residence about a person with a gun.

The woman told police that Maxwell pointed a gun at her, Johnson said.

Maxwell has been booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.

Johnson said Maxwell, 26, was being held awaiting his initial court appearance.

It was unclear what led up to the incident, and Johnson said no other details were available.

NY Times Launches Slime Attack on Gen. John Kelly’s Patriotism

Apparently, a presidential Chief-of-Staff sharing the same definition of patriotism as his boss is now a bad thing.

But that’s only if the C-i-S in question is John Kelly, and the president in question is Donald Trump.

In all fairness, it should also be noted that the ones casting the accusatory finger is none other than the paragon of objectivity and fairness, The New York Times.

As **achem** “reported” by Peter Baker of The Times, the writer bemoans that Kelly hasn’t reigned-in Trump to his satisfaction;

For all of the talk of Mr. Kelly as a moderating force and the so-called grown-up in the room, it turns out that he harbors strong feelings on patriotism, national security and immigration that mirror the hard-line views of his outspoken boss.

Imagine that… a man who spent well over 40 years in the Marine Corps happens to be a solid pro-American patriot. Whoda thunk it?

These are the type of men General John Kelly led as
Commander of all Multinational Forces in western Iraq.

Trump Endorses ‘MAGA Dress’ Singer for Congress

Not only did Joy Villa shock Tinsel Town when she recently showed up to the Grammy Awards decked-out in a very Trumpian “Make America Great Again” dress, she also drew the ire of many in the world of entertainment.

Getting the last laugh, Villa’s digital album “I Make the Static” rocketed to #1 on the Amazon and iTunes charts.

But it looks as if the Los Angeles-born singer just may want to get another laugh on the Hollywood liberal elite. Villa appeared on Fox & Friends in regards to her mulling a congressional run.

As reported by Theodore Bunker of NewsMax.com;

Singer Joy Villa, who wore a Make-America-Great-Again-themed dress to the Grammy awards in February, told Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt on Friday that she’s considering a run for Congress.

“I’m looking at Florida, I’m looking at California and I’m looking at New York, because these are all places I live and work and have grown up in,” Villa said on “Fox & Friends.”

“If I run, I’m going to win,” she added. “There’s such a need for good congressmen, for good people in office who are putting forth the aims of the people, not just their own agenda.”

President Donald Trump wished Villa luck, saying “she has many fans,” early Friday morning.

Which was quickly responded to by the possible candidate;

In turn, former Trump advisor Sebastian Gorka penned his own follow-up;

Cry Havoc: Trump Unleashes CIA Hunter-Killer Groups in Afghanistan

Very quietly, very behind the scenes, President Trump has let slip the dogs of war against the Taliban, al-Qaeda and ISIS in Afghanistan.

And by dogs of war, I mean CIA hunter-killer teams heavily augmented by military Special Operations personnel.

So what will these CIA “paramilitary and contractors” along with a handful of quite lethal Leathernecks and GIs be up to? Long story short, lightning quick assaults on jihadist leadership as well as bombmakers.

As reported by The Daily Caller;

CIA paramilitary forces are expanding partner operations in Afghanistan to hunt and kill high level Taliban operatives, The New York Times reports.

These CIA missions will reportedly include both paramilitary personnel of the CIA along with U.S. special operations forces detailed to the agency for specific missions. The use of special operations forces allows hunter killer teams to call in air support, if necessary, as they hunt Taliban bomb-makers across the country.

The loosening of restrictions on CIA ground operations in Afghanistan is part of a broader push by President Donald Trump’s administration to accelerate pressure on Taliban militants. Trump previously loosened CIA drone strike rules in Afghanistan that will now allow for some civilian casualties relative to the importance of the target.

Also reported by the Washington Examiner, more specifics on how President Trump, Secretary Mattis, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joe Dunford, USMC, plan to crush the jihadists;

Mattis and Dunford looked at the performance of the Afghan military and determined that special forces units and other troops with embedded U.S. advisers usually won, while conventional Afghan troops often lost. So a key aspect of the plan is to put U.S. or NATO advisers with all the Afghan forces on the front lines. That means sending another 3,000 or so U.S. troops, and several thousand more from other NATO countries. Those troops will accompany the Afghan forces into the field, and — this is a critical change — they will be authorized to call in U.S. and coalition airstrikes to support the ground operations. “Make no mistake, this is combat duty, but the Afghan forces remain in the lead to do the fighting,” Mattis said.

How is it different? Under President Barack Obama, the U.S. was operating under the pretense that combat operations with the Taliban ended in 2014, and U.S. offensive strikes were limited to cases of self-defense, or when the Taliban were close enough to present a direct threat. Afghan forces were left on their own, with no air cover to battle the Taliban, often taking heavy casualties. Now Mattis has taken the gloves off. There are no restrictions on airpower, and no requirement for “proximity” to provide close air support. “We did not give the young Afghan boys the sense that they had the high ground when they were fighting against this enemy, that the NATO air support could have given them,” Mattis said. “Today, I can bring that air support to them.”

The other big change: There is no timetable for victory, no announced withdrawal date, so the Taliban cannot just wait out the U.S. “There was always a sense that the United States was going to pull out in 12 months,” Dunford told the Senate panel. “And the Taliban, frankly, fed that message to their fighters, and that’s how they motivated their people year after year, was, ‘One more year in a fight, and then we’re going to defeat the coalition. They are going to leave Afghanistan.’”

Interestingly enough, word is on the streets that small (less that 100 Marines per detachment) and highly mobile Marine artillery units will be peppered across the country to respond at a moment’s notice for “thunder from the sky”.

Even more interesting, Marines from the 6th ANGLICO (Air and Naval Gunfire Liaison Company) have spent the last seven months in Germany training the 31st Georgian Light Infantry Battalion on the intricacies of calling-in pin-point airstrikes and artillery fire missions.

Also reported is that when the Georgians deploy to Afghanistan, a number of Marines from 6th ANGLICO will deploy with the 31st;

The role of the 6th ANGLICO SALT (Supporting Arms Liaison Team) was to serve as the battalion’s fire support coordination center and to plan, coordinate, and execute surface to surface fires, air to surface fires, and assault support in support of the battalion’s mission. These Marines will also deploy to Afghanistan with the 31st Georgian Light Infantry Battalion in October, 2017.

Surprisingly reported by the reliably hard-Leftist New York Times, the CIA’s new director Mike Pompeo was quoted expressing an opinion that Generals Kelly and Mattis would be proud of;

“We can’t perform our mission if we’re not aggressive,” Mr. Pompeo said at a security conference this month at the University of Texas. “This is unforgiving, relentless. You pick the word. Every minute, we have to be focused on crushing our enemies.”

Bush turns his back.

Globalist Backstabber: The Legacy of George W. Bush

For the eight long years of the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, George W. Bush was consistently hammered by both Obama and his ever-loyal Ministry of Propaganda (CNN, NY Times, NBC, etc) as either a bumbling fool with the intelligence (and mannerisms to match) of a baboon, or as some type of evil genius responsible for death, destruction and the shredding of civil liberties from the Euphrates River to Guantanamo Bay to Anytown, USA.

And the whole time Dubya kept his mouth shut. Every Obama failure… every Obama misstep… every time Obama embarrassed himself and this nation, the blame for reliably laid at the feet of the former Texas governor.

Instead of even a minimal defence of his presidency or even himself as a man, Bush remained silent to the Obama insults while he kept himself busy with long-distance bicycle rides with veterans or by painting portraits of the same vets he ordered to war.

Even when Obama ordered a unilateral withdrawal from Iraq in 2009, Bush remained silent.

Even with Iraqi cities and towns such as Fallujah, Mosul, Ramadi and Tikrit began falling to the radical Islamist jihadists of ISIS, Bush remained silent.

Even when it became painfully obvious to even the most partisan of political hacks that the over 4,000 dead and tens of thousands of wounded American kids who were fed into the meatgrinder was all in vain, Bush remained silent.

Even with the likes of the Battle of Fallujah, the Battle of Tikrit, etc, being written in American blood into the annals of the Marine Corps and the Army, Bush remained silent.

Fast forward to present day. Nine short months into the Trump presidency, George W. Bush has decided to speak up. Who does he attack? You guessed it – President Trump.

So what was Bush’s reward for defending globalism and never ending military intervention overseas?

The reliable mouthpieces of globalism and never ending military intervention overseas, The New Yorker and NPR have deigned to pronounce Dubya as an “elder statesman”.

Quite different from the branding of him as drooling mouth breather out to destroy the Constitution, and more than worthy of impeachment, huh?

Will dance for food: Megyn Kelly’s ’22 nearly unbearable seconds’

There’s no two ways about it — Megyn Kelly is very good looking. And there was a time when she was also a halfway decent journalist.

As the Business Insider reported last January, Kelly was pulling in somewhere between $10 to $12 million every year while still at the Fox News Channel. But with her bailing-out from the FNC, Kelly is now saddled-up with the Peacock Network to the tune of $15 to $20 million annually.

And as even the most moderate newser already knows, Kelly abandoned her journalistic objectivity during the 2016 presidential campaign when she openly embraced the anti-Trump movement.

In the meantime, news junkies are already on top of the unmitigated ratings disaster that’s been Kelly’s NBC morning show.

Reporter Travis Andrews of the Washington Post chronicles what could be the most cringe-worthy of all stunts used by floundering TV personalities desperate to boost sagging viewership – dancing for the crowd;

Megyn Kelly’s slot of the “Today” show desperately needs a ratings boost after less than a month on the air.

On Thursday, Hoda Kotb, the ever-upbeat popular “Today” host from another hour appeared as a guest. They chatted. They danced. They tried to get the audience on its feet dancing, too.

Critics hated the moment.

“I’ve never been so embarrassed,” tweeted BuzzFeed News’s Kate Aurthur. “I feel nothing but second-hand embarrassment for Megyn Kelly,” chimed in media critic Ian Miles Cheong. Vulture called the clip “22 nearly unbearable seconds.”

House Democrats Call On Republicans To Take Action On Zika Funding Bill

Nut-Job Congresswoman Plays the Ultimate Victim Card

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you and the rest of the civilized world already have seen the disgusting video clip (below) of Florida Democrat Frederica Wilson gleefully proclaiming herself “a rock star” in the wake of the death of Sgt La David Johnson.

But what isn’t drawing as much attention is Wilson’s rather pathetic attempt to demonize General John Kelly. As reported by Anna Giaritelli of the Washington Examiner;

Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said Friday that White House chief of staff John Kelly’s use of the term “empty barrel” in a Thursday press conference was racist.

“That’s a racist term, too. I’m thinking about that one. We looked it up in the dictionary because I had never heard of an empty barrel. And I don’t like to be dragged into something like that,” Wilson told CNN Friday morning. “The only thing I want to be dragged into right now is getting back our girls who are the victims of Boko Haram in Nigeria.”

Somehow missing the irony of the Obama Administration historical ignoring the plight of “our girls” (other than a plethora of dopey hashtags), Wilson made a point further whoring out what few shreds of integrity and dignity she had remaining;

“Boko Haram and ISIS combined, and they killed my son,” Wilson added.

“You mean Sgt. La David Johnson?” the CNN host asked.

“La David. My role model son, my role model son,” Wilson clarified.

In the meantime, CNN political commentator and longtime Democrat propagandist Brian Fallon personally attacked General Kelly via social media;

To keep things in perspective, the Cambridge Dictionary defines odious as;

Odious
adjective UK ​ /ˈəʊ.di.əs/ US ​ /ˈoʊ.di.əs/ formal

extremely unpleasant and causing or deserving hate:

Thesaurus: synonyms and related words

Serious and unpleasant

abominable abysmal apocalyptic appalling awfully belief corrosive grim grisly grotesque gruesome hate noxious revolting rotten shitty shocking shockingly stinking wretched

Just so everyone is aware of the professional pedigree of Fallon, here’s a listing of the people or organizations the CNN talking head has been employed as a spokesman;

  • Kerry-Edwards presidential campaign
  • Senator Robert Menendez (currently on trial for corruption)
  • Senator Charles Schumer
  • Senate Democratic Policy and Communications Center
  • Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department
  • Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign

Happily, there are still some who don’t mind confronting the political prostitution as practiced by the likes of Wilson and Fallon;

Help, She’s Talking and Can’t Shut Up

wilson-obama2

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) just doesn’t seem when to know when to shut her mouth.

After a smack down of Biblical proportions at the hands of President Trump’s Chief-of-Staff, General John Kelly, USMC (Ret), Wilson doubled down.

As reported by Amber Athey of the Daily Caller, Wilson was quoted as stating of the Gold Star father;

“John Kelly’s trying to keep his job. He will say anything.”

Other than the brief video clips that almost everyone in the civilized world has seen, below if the entire statement given by Kelly.

Besides the now famous “stunned and heartbroken” quote by the CoS, Kelly also called-out Wilson for yet another unbelievably stupid moment in the life of Frederica Wilson; (Full transcript here)

I’ll end with this: In October — April, rather, of 2015, I was still on active duty, and I went to the dedication of the new FBI field office in Miami. And it was dedicated to two men who were killed in a firefight in Miami against drug traffickers in 1986 — a guy by the name of Grogan and Duke. Grogan almost retired, 53 years old; Duke, I think less than a year on the job. (Editor’s note: The F.B.I. agent for which the building is named was named Jerry L. Dove, not Duke.)

Anyways, they got in a gunfight and they were killed. Three other FBI agents were there, were wounded, and now retired. So we go down — Jim Comey gave an absolutely brilliant memorial speech to those fallen men and to all of the men and women of the FBI who serve our country so well, and law enforcement so well.

There were family members there. Some of the children that were there were three or four years old when their dads were killed on that street in Miami-Dade. Three of the men that survived the fight were there, and gave a rendition of how brave those men were and how they gave their lives.

And a congresswoman stood up, and in the long tradition of empty barrels making the most noise, stood up there and all of that and talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building, and how she took care of her constituents because she got the money, and she just called up President Obama, and on that phone call he gave the money — the $20 million — to build the building. And she sat down, and we were stunned. Stunned that she had done it. Even for someone that is that empty a barrel, we were stunned.

But, you know, none of us went to the press and criticized. None of us stood up and were appalled. We just said, O.K., fine.

So I still hope, as you write your stories, and I appeal to America, that let’s not let this maybe last thing that’s held sacred in our society — a young man, young woman going out and giving his or her life for our country — let’s try to somehow keep that sacred. But it eroded a great deal yesterday by the selfish behavior of a member of Congress.

You’ll Never Guess Who Was Harvey Weinstein’s Next-Door Neighbors

The New York Observer published on July 28, 2017 that Weinstein’s “picturesque Amagansett home” was up for sale for a mere $13.5 million.

With buyers a bit an the apprehensive side, Weinstein dropped the asking price to a bit more moderate $12.4 million. Yet what’s even more nauseating from the Observer was their pretty desperate name dropping;

And along with the water views, you’re likely to see many a famous face in the celeb-loved locale. In fact, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton rented the home just next door to Weinstein and [his wife, Georgina] Chapman’s in 2014 and 2015.

Interesting how they described Weinstein’s multi-zillion dollar home in The Hamptons as “picturesque”.

As it turns out, the ever-creepy knowledge that know sexual predators Harvey and Bill had their own version of Summer Lovin’ among the dunes, rest assured that The Harv  made sure he was readily available for some Hillary time.

As reported by the New York Post’s Page Six from June of 2016;

Despite a strict rule against social-media posts or photos at a star-studded Hillary Clinton fundraiser at the home of Harvey Weinstein on Monday night, spies said one guest dared to break the rules —Martha Stewart.

The intimate, starry event was hosted by Weinstein along with Leo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lopez and Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

The rest of the article is pretty blah-blah-blah, show biz, blah-blah-blah, we’re better than you, blah-blah-blah, but you get the picture.

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.”

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.

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.

NFL v. CFL: Dissecting Clueless Multi-Multi-Millionaires

Qu’est-ce que ce fils de pute a dit?

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.)

Average salary:

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.”
