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.

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.

No such thing as ‘transgendered’ – Says who? Science

11667358_931200543603630_4009258881531221191_n

Transgendered is a word being bandied about quite a bit lately.

It’s almost as if certain politicians and media outlets are bombarding us with everything transgendered in a move to desensitize the populous to what this thing truly is, and after we’ve had this shoved down our throats long enough (no pun intended), then we’ll all accept the entire notion of transgendered as perfectly normal.

But I have a different perspective. I’m of the opinion that it’s anything but normal. In fact, I find transgendered to be the textbook definition of abnormal.

Of course, President Trump putting the kibosh on this whole transgendered bunch openly serving in the armed forces has whipped the entire LGBTQIAPK community into quite the angered frenzy.

Just in case you aren’t quite sure what the LGBTQIAPK community is, that particular set of initials stands for “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersexual, Asexual, Pansexual and Polygamous, and Kinkiness.”

Anyhow, like I said, the, umm… shall I say this? The alternative lifestyle crowd is in full power-pout regarding The Donald bringing Barack Obama’s grand social experiment to a decidedly unceremonious end.

Transgendered hoaxes. (Twitter)

Caution: No Safe Space Ahead…

With all that aside, allow me to make the following trigger-inducing statements;

  • There is no such woman named Caitlyn Jenner
  • There is no such woman named Kristin Beck
  • There is no such woman named Chelsea Manning

There are, however, three quasi-famous men named Bruce Jenner, Christopher Beck and Bradley Manning, respectively. Of course, the common thread is that they’re all transgendered. Or in my personal opinion, three guys who’ve grown their hair long, had breast implants, then mutilated their genitals, but that’s just my opinion.

With transgendered being a relatively new word in the Western lexicon, what exactly does that mean? To liberals it means that a man has become a woman, and conversely, a woman becomes a man, period.

I won’t use a theological argument due to the liberal belief that nothing is greater them. So instead, I’ll just fall back on common sense and basic biology.

  • Of course, everyone is familiar with cloning à la Dolly the sheep. So if and when science starts cloning human beings, what if Bruce, Chris and Bradley donate some scraping from their inner cheek? Will that clone be male or female? We already know the answer to that. No matter what operation they have or pills they ingest, they’ll never change their chromosomes.

Now just a couple of rhetorical questions:

  • Is it scientifically possible for Bruce, Chris or Bradley of ever being diagnosed with cervical cancer?
  • Is it scientifically possible for Bruce, Chris or Bradley of ever being diagnosed with prostate cancer?

I would like to make it abundantly clear that I don’t hate or have any ill will for those who either choose or approve of this particular lifestyle.

Here’s what I’d like – how about stop demanding the rest of us agree with and accept your life choices, or face the consequences of your Gestapo-like reprisals?

That’s reasonable, isn’t it?

News Flash: Russian spying on the United States since 1850s

russian
Democrats respond to Russian spying.

Russian spying: Should I dare bring up the Soviet spies that infiltrated the Democrat Administration of Franklin Roosevelt?

This may come as somewhat of a shock to the Democrats, but Russia has been spying on our beloved America since at least the middle of the 19th century. Way before Boris Badenov tried to rig the outcome of the football game between Wossamatta U. and the Mud City Manglers, the Russians have been knee-deep in America’s affairs of state.

In spite of the Democrats recent clutching of pearls and near apoplectic drama when the cameras are on, those nogoodniks in Mother Russia have been snoopin’ and poopin’ on us since at least 1851.

As noted in the book The Treaty of Portsmouth and Its Legacies, edited by Steven Ericson and Allen Hockley, the American ambassador to Czarist Russia, Neil S. Brown from 1851-1853, reported back to Washington that the “most disagreeable features of Russia were its secrecy, surveillance, distrust, undue ceremony and delay, overbearing police, censorship, and espionage, including opening communications and spying.” Sounds like the Obama Administration.

It’s a fair bet that the same espionage and spying Ambassador Brown decried was also pointed directly at the American embassy in the then Russian capital of St. Petersburg.

By the way, the definition of espionage is “the practice

russia
Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale, the DNC’s boogyman. (Youtube)

of spying or using spies to obtain information about the plans and activities especially of a foreign government”.

Speaking of fair bets, our own CIA notes in their official website that a little sumpin’-sumpin’ called the Zagranichnaia okhranka (fancy Russian talk for the House of Romanov’s Imperial Police) opened their Paris office in 1883 to keep an eye on Russian troublemakers who’ve been booted from the Land of the Rus.

And yes, it’s a fair bet that the butt-in-skis at the unpronounceable Zagranichnaia okhranka poked their collective noses into the goings-on at the American embassy regarding the status of Russians who had recently emigrated to the States.

But if Czarist Russia isn’t your cup of tea, there’s always the re-branded Russians, also known as the Soviets.

In the Edward Mickolus book The Counterintelligence Chronology: Spying by and Against the United States from the 1700s through 2014, the author notes that the former-USSR posted their first (that we know of) intelligence officer in the United States.

As it turns out, standard spy-craft wasn’t enough for the Soviets. Even the dependably left-leaning PBS cited on their website;

The Amtorg Trading Corporation is an American company based in New York that was founded in 1924 by the Soviet Union to serve as its buying and selling organization in trade between the USSR and the USA. It handled the bulk of Soviet-American trade until 1935, and continues to exist today. Working as an Amtorg employee served as a convenient cover for Soviet spies, such as Morris Cohen.

That’s right. The same Morris Cohen who turned his back on the land of his birth, and later against Great Britain, for the Soviet Union.

They’re called the RED Sox for a reason

Fake news alert: Trump gutting Meals on Wheels revealed a media lie

MSM caught lying about Meals on Wheels. (Wiki)
MSM caught lying about Meals on Wheels. (Wiki)

Time and The Hill magazines breathlessly reported the Meals on Wheels program has been slashed of all federal funding in the proposed budget on submitted to Congress by President Trump.

As Walter Olson of the none-too-Trump-friendly National Review objectively noted, the rush to judgement against Trump certainly “made for great copy — irresistibly clickable and compulsively shareable.”

Only one problem — none of it was true.

With a Time headline of “Trump Proposed Budget Eliminates Funds for Meals on Wheels” and The Hill garnering 26,000 shares online from their fake reporting, the Left-leaning media certainly thought they’d snagged the president on a rather large gotchya moment.

As reported;

But it was false. And it wouldn’t have taken long for reporters to find and provide some needed context to the relationship between federal block grant programs, specifically Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), and the popular Meals on Wheels program.

I started on the organization’s own website. From Thursday’s conversation in the press, it was easy to assume that block grant programs — CDBG and similar block grants for community services and social services — are the main source of federal funding for Meals on Wheels. Not so.

Instead, as the national site explains, the major source of federal funding for the programs, accounting for 35 percent of overall local budgets, comes through the Sixties-era Older Americans Act. (Local programs also obtain support from state and county governments, private donors, and so on.)

According to the website, cuts have not been announced in Older Americans Act funding, although the group fears that they may lie ahead.

Notice the key word in the last sentence is “may,” not “will.”

But I digress. Yet another screaming example of the MSM’s is the schizophrenic excuse of reporting, Gregory Korte of USA Today  has as the caption of the article’s main photograph;

Meals on Wheels, the popular service that provides food to the elderly, faces a sharp funding cut under President Donald Trump’s budget proposal.

Curiously, the very first sentence in the article proper is;

President Trump’s first budget proposal to Congress last week specifically identified steep cuts to hundreds of domestic programs, but Meals on Wheels wasn’t one of them.

When North Korea’s Kim Jong-un executes someone, it’s usually with the élan and flair reserved only for the especially psychotic. A prime example would be his latest rounds of executing those who’ve fallen from his favor.

With such grandiose titles such as “Great Successor to the Revolutionary Cause of Juche (self-reliance)”, “Outstanding Leader of the Party, Army and People” and “Respected Comrade who is Identical to Supreme Commander Kim Jong-il”, the rather pudgy dictator obviously wants nothing to do with rather mundane and anti-climactic forms of execution such as lethal injections.

While never serving in the North Korean People’s Army himself, Kim has quite the fondness for dispatching his enemies by way of military hardware.

Examples include ex-Vice Minister of the Army Kim Chol who was turned into hamburger via mortar barrage. Kim Chol was found guilty of “drinking and carousing during the official mourning period after Kim Jong-il’s death.”

Former Deputy Minister of Public Security O Sang-hon was roasted alive by a flame thrower. His crime? Being friends with Kim Jong-un’s uncle, Gen. Jang Song-thaek, who supposedly plotted to overthrow his nephew. Reportedly, Uncle Song-thaek and his entire family were executed.

But in Lil’ Kim’s latest, The Daily Caller reports;

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un executed another batch of senior officials, South Korea’s spy agency revealed Monday.

Kim pulled out the anti-aircraft gun for the execution of five senior officials, charged with submitting false government reports, according to South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS).

North Korea fired state security chief Kim Won-hong last month for corruption, abuse, and torture. The five officials reportedly killed by the regime worked in Kim’s office and were executed for providing inaccurate reports.

The false data provided by the officials is said to have “enraged” the young despot Kim Jong-un.

The NIS did not reveal how it obtained information regarding the most recent executions. As inside information about the internal affairs of the reclusive North Korean state is hard to come by, the accuracy of such reports is, to a certain extent, questionable.

Kim Jong-un reportedly has an affinity for killing people with anti-aircraft guns, the bullets for which would rip a human being apart.

For his part, reigning in a nation where upwards of a third of the population is starving, Kim has gone from rather chubby to criminally obese.

With his height has been estimated as somewhere between 5’7″ to 5’9″, Britain’s The Guardian notes that upon assuming power, Kim was weighed in at a plump 90 kg (198 lbs). But after four years of binging on food and booze “to cope with his constant fear of being assassinated,” he’s swollen to a hefty 130 kg (287 lbs).

The tubby tyrant has reportedly gained so much weight, that his skeletal frame has buckled under the strain. The Telegraph cites “Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, has become so fat while in office that his ankles have fractured under his own weight.”

The internet-based vets advocacy group Veterans Assisting Veterans have taken aim at a number of Massachusetts politicians and the senior senator from Arizona, but specifically Sen. Elizabeth Warren for what they see as her “‘selfish political theater’ and demanding they put veterans’ services at the top of their list — or feel the heat.” Continue reading Massachusetts vets slam Warren, McCain: Favors ‘illegal immigrants over US Veterans’

Sean Spicer embarrasses NY Times reporter in front of the entire nation

It’s bad enough when the President of the United States refers to your publication as “the failing New York Times.” But when your White House correspondent is made to look the fool in front of the entire nation, that’s something else entirely.

Case in point: While conducting his daily press briefing, White House Press Secretary and Communications Director Sean Spicer gave quite the etiquette lesson to Times reporter Glenn Thrush.

As reported by The Washington Examiner;

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Thursday chided a reporter for trying to ask a question without being called on first by saying: “We’re going to raise our hands like big boys and girls.”

Spicer had called on another reporter to ask a question when Glenn Thrush, a reporter with the New York Times, also tried to jumped in to ask a question of his own.

Thrush is the reporter who “Saturday Night Live” has portrayed in skits being berated by a fictional Spicer.

“Glen. This isn’t a TV program,” Spicer said Thursday. “You don’t get to just yell out questions.”

As it turns out, the White House’s James S. Brady Press Briefing Room isn’t the only place where the failing New York Times is the recipient of the proverbial back of the hand.

Would liberal Connecticut attempt to arrest a presidential assassin? Don’t count on it

Kennedy’s assassination was ruled to be Oswald acting alone. (Wiki)

Presidential assassination is one of the very few instances of murder being a crime chargeable as a federal offense. With that said, let’s hope that no president ever gets whacked specifically in the Nutmeg State.

But first a bit of background. U.S. Code › Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 84 › § 1751 is officially entitled “Presidential and Presidential staff assassination, kidnapping, and assault; penalties.”

As cited, those of the Executive Branch covered include;

  • The President of the United States
  • The President-elect
  • The Vice President
  • Or, if there is no Vice President, the officer next in the order of succession to the Office of the President of the United States
  • The Vice President-elect, or any person who is acting as President under the Constitution and laws of the United States

Also cited are those “employed in the Executive Office of the President or appointed under section 106(a)(1)(A) of title 3 employed in the Office of the Vice President.”

But it doesn’t end with just the Prez and the Veep. U.S. Code › Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 18 › § 351 offers the same to all members of the House and Senate, the Presidential Cabinet as well as the Supreme Court.

That brings us to a curious question: If any of the individuals specified by Title 18 of the U.S. Code were to be victims of the aforementioned crimes, would the state, county, city, town, village, hamlet or sleepy crossroads LEOs (Law Enforcement Organizations) work with the feds on apprehending the bad guys?

In a recent airing of Tucker Carlson Live on the Fox News Channel, the lead guest was Gov. Dannel Malloy (D-Conn.) regarding the state making the conscience decision not to work with the feds regarding illegal immigration.

As reported;

On Thursday, Tucker Carlson debated Gov. Dannel Malloy (D-Conn.) on his response to President Trump’s order that states comply with federal immigration laws when dealing with illegal immigrants.

This week, Malloy issued a memo to law enforcement and school officials, telling them they do not have to abide by federal immigration laws or fully cooperate with ICE.

As seen in the below video clip;

  • 1:09 mark, Malloy clearly states, “The president can’t order us to do, uh, federal work. Uh, quite frankly, the federal government should to its own job.”
  • 5:52 mark, the governor further clarified his stance of Connecticut state and local resources dealing with a federal crime; “We should not be expending local dollars… state dollars, to do the federal government’s job.”

Marion Maréchal-Le Pen: The next European right-wing superstar

Looking more like Brian Wilson’s notion of what the perfect 1960s California Girl would look like, France’s Marion Maréchal-Le Pen is actually well on her way to becoming a Gallic combination of Donald and Ivanka Trump.

As a sitting member of the French parliament representing the 3rd constituency of Vaucluse in the southeast of the nation, the 27-year-old lawmaker is already one of the leading figures in the hardcore right-wing Front National (FN) party.

With the upcoming national election for president not that far off in the future, the betting is against the current head honchoette of the FN, her aunt Marine Le Pen will more than likely place second to Republican party former Prime Minister François Fillon.

Between Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, populism is all the rage on the continent, and it looks like Maréchal-Le Pen just could be sitting in the catbird seat for the 2022 election if Auntie Marine fails to win the presidency.
