After her dead body was found abandoned and the only swaddling clothes she ever knew were bloody rags, five-month preemie Baby Monica was finally laid to rest. Continue reading “NYPD Ensures Baby Monica Received the Dignity in Death that She Never Received in Life”
As a retired Marine, I’ll admit that it pains me to see a Marine Corps officer reduced to being little more than a glorified usher, especially in light that the Corps has at least half-a-million dollars invested in that young captain. But that’s a different rant for a different day.
At the funeral service for President George H.W. Bush held today at Washington, D.C.’s National Cathedral (Episcopal), there was a rather tense moment in the Presidential Pew.
As the current POTUS and FLOTUS were escorted to their designated seats in the front pew, it’s tradition that all surviving ex-Commanders-in-Chiefs and former-First Ladies sit in the same pew with the current residents of the White House.
As seen in the video below, the Trumps were, by tradition, the last seated.
Entering first, Melania Trump exchanged handshakes with the Obamas, Bill Clinton, and waved at the furthest seated from them, the Carters. President Carter was caught on camera briefly responding to Melania’s wave.
Last seated, President Trump exchanged handshakes with the Obamas. While President Clinton at least looked towards President Trump (or maybe he was still eye-molesting Melania), Hillary remained stone faced.
The “look” on Hillary’s face is reminiscent of the same facial expression she gave to the families of those killed under her watch in Benghazi.
The Deep South doesn’t get much deeper than Oxford, Mississippi. The same town that’s home to the Ole Miss Rebels and the university’s former mascot Colonel Reb, just held the largest Confederate funeral and procession the city has seen for over the last 100 years.
As reported by WTVA (of Tupelo, Miss.) and The Local Voice newspaper (of Oxford, Miss), both on Aug. 3, 2015, Anthony Hervey was laid to rest yesterday in what has been described as the largest Confederate funeral and procession seen in Oxford, Mississippi for at least the last century. Known in the press as a “black Confederate,” Hervey was an unabashed and unapologetic supporter of everything Confederate States of America, to include the iconic Confederate battle flag.
While thousands of present and former members of the New York City Police Department have recently displayed their displeasure and anger at Mayor Bill de Blasio by turning their collective backs on him, the mayor fired back by referring to those officers as “disrespectful,” but made no mention of his wife sporting denim blue jeans to the funeral of assassinated Detective Wenjian Lui.
There was a joke among DC Beltway insiders that during the Clinton years if you shook Bill’s family tree hard enough, chances were that at least one more previously unknown half-brother would fall out. Barack Obama has a variation of the same predicament, except in his case, it’s legal troubles involving his late father’s siblings, one of whom passed away recently. As reported by both The Weekly Standard news portal on April 23, 2014, and The New York Times on April 22, 2014, Obama’s beloved “Auntie” Zeituni Onyango recently left this life, yet the Chief Executive chose to pass on attending the funeral, opting instead to hit the links.
