The mail is still being delivered; those expecting a tax return will still get it; the Coast Guard is still guarding the coasts; all is right with the world.
Golly gee, how is this happening in the middle of a supposed “government shutdown”?
From what we’re told, “around” 800,000 federal employees have been furloughed (but will be paid back in full for days worked) due to President Trump’s partial shutdown of the federal government.
Amazing that no one can nail a solid number down as to how many are on a temporary vacation, huh?
There’s an old saying that the American federal government is a giant that’s so fat, it can’t even tie its own shoes.
Yeah, that’s a frightening visual, but you know what’s even scarier? A certain quote from our 35th president;
“The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.” – President John F. Kennedy
Hopefully, the fearmongering of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi over the possibility of a pending presidential shutdown will register with only a relative handful of half-wits.
No, I don’t mean that whatever sins that may be on Stephen Miller’s soul are low-grade offenses against The Almighty, like maybe mumbling unkind words towards a rude motorist who cut him off on DC’s notorious beltway.
Miller’s transgressions are those he allegedly committed while in third grade. You know, like when he was eight-years-old.
As it turns out, Miller’s third grade teacher, Nikki Fiske, decided to give The Hollywood Reporter her insider tell-all on President Trump’s senior policy advisor.
As actor John Vernon’s character of Captain Fletcher stated so eloquently in the film, The Outlaw Josey Wales, “Don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s raining.”
That’s pretty much the impression I had when I read today’s tweet shot out by Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN).
You remember Steve Cohen, don’t you? He’s the yutz that stupidly stated that disgraced FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok deserved the Purple Heart medal.
In response to President Trump’s Helsinki presser with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the congressman from Memphis let his felling known via Twitter;
Where are our military folks ? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy! https://t.co/3eF7OLKEdN
— Steve Cohen (@RepCohen) July 16, 2018
Now’s the time to insert the line from Vernon;
Now Cohen is making noise claiming he never called for a military coup;
Talk about jumping to conclusions without talking to source. No coup called for . I seriously doubt anyone would use twitter to do .. one tweet if by land two if by sea…Wow https://t.co/3d0uhGa57t
— Steve Cohen (@RepCohen) July 16, 2018
In true liberal fashion, Cohen thinks the American people are utterly and completely stupid. I can’t speak for anyone else, but Mr. Cohen, I know exactly what you meant.
In the meantime, enjoy the response to Cohen by the aptly-tagged @Justin_Case;

Perhaps medically retired Marine, SSgt Johnny “Joey” Jones who lost both legs in combat, giving his thoughts on Cohen stating how much Strzok “deserves” a Purple Heart said it best;
For 65 years, the United States has maintained a military force in the Republic of Korea (ROK) that’s always numbered at least in the tens of thousands.
It’s time to bring that to an end.
Of the 28,500 American troops, the overwhelming majority are of the US Army, scattered throughout the nation on dozens of bases, both minor and major. There is also a sizable minority of US Air Force personnel stationed at Osan and Kunsan airbases.
The only others would be a smallish US Navy supply base at the end of the peninsula (in Busan, the ROK’s second largest city), and a microscopic US Marine Corps administrative and liaison facility in Daegu.
With all that aside, one of President Trump’s campaign promises was to start bringing our troops home. The Republic of Korea would be a great place to start.
I’m not advocating this because I’m a dove. I’m anything but.
And while it’s debatable if the South Korean people want us on their soil, it’s a sure bet we aren’t needed there.
On the heels of President Trump’s successful first meeting with NoKo dictator Kim Jung-un, don’t buy off on the liberal media’s hyper-ventilating that without US troops in-country, somehow South Korea is “wide open for invasion!” as I’ve recently heard some twit over at MSNBC breathlessly claim.
As previously stated, we have slightly under 30,000 members of all branches of our armed forces stationed in the Republic… but do you know the size of the ROK military?
Active duty strength alone stands at nearly a two-third of a million (625,000). Reservists number 5.2 million. That’s right, I said million.
Not bad for a nation roughly the size of Minnesota.
In fact, the everything military website GlobalFirePower.com ranks the ROK as the 7th most powerful military force on the planet.
Besides, right behind the ROK is Japan at number eight.
In spite of Japan’s post-WW II constitution forbidding an offensive military, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is doing his level best to amend such. And besides, Japan has one of the most technologically advanced navy and air force, not just in the Far East, but anywhere.
But back to Korea. To add insult to injury, the four million man ROK armed forces isn’t even commanded by a Korean.
A hangover from the Korean War, the United Nations commander of all allied forces in South Korea was and still is an American general.
As cited from the official website of the ROK/US Combined Forces Command;
The CFC is commanded by a four-star U.S. general, with a four-star ROK Army general as deputy commander.
Regardless that South Korean troops outnumber American troops 22-1, that’s got to be humiliating for our Korean allies.
Take my word for it, the South Koreans are more than capable of defending their own nation.
Besides, if the North Koreans ever do something unbelievably stupid, like invade the south, the 3d Marine Division, the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, and the Navy’s 7th Fleet are right next door in Japan.
The word’s out – President Trump considers the members of MS-13 to be “animals” as reported by the Breitbart.com news portal.
Now I’m not going to waste my time citing the sources to each and every news article that details how the Central American criminal gang dispatches those who get in their way… and sometimes those who don’t get in their way.
That whole bloodlust thingee.
Suffice it to say that members of MS-13 have murdered people with guns, knives, and machetes. Speaking of machetes, they have quite the reputation for cutting the heads off their victims just to make a point.
In an especially bloody hit, the Washington Post notes of a hit on a rival gang member who was stabbed in the stomach so many times, “you could see his intestines.”
Nonetheless, the president’s “animal” comment has many *a-chem* “journalists” accusing the POTUS of racism.
With no pun intended, the pro-MS-13 tweet sent out by bleeding heart liberal John Harwood is possibly the most gutless utterance posted on social media;
however repugnant their actions, MS-13 gang members are human beings IMHO
— John Harwood (@JohnJHarwood) May 17, 2018
According to PBS, Harwood is the Chief Washington Correspondent for CNBC and a Political Writer for The New York Times.
Why does that not come as a surprise?
By the way, according to ParadigmResearchGroup.org, just from CNBC alone, John Harwood’s salary is $1 million +.
Harwood’s overall net worth is estimated at $10 million, minimum.
“Thank God that I am an American.” – Keith Richburg
Suffice it to say that Keith Richburg didn’t make a lot of friends in the militant black and liberal white communities after he published his book Out of America: A Black Man Confronts Africa in 1997.
Richburg had the guts to tell many Americans exactly what they didn’t want to hear. Namely that the myth of Mother Africa is just that; a myth.
A foreign correspondent with The Washington Post, Richburg was The Post’s go-to guy in Africa from 1991-1994.
As noted that when he wrote the book back in the late 1990s, the government of Zimbabwe offered a glimmer of hope that it wouldn’t “tumble down the same slope of bloodshed, chaos and instability that had engulfed much of the rest of sub-Saharan Africa.”
Yet in the very next paragraph, Richburg laments, “Mugabe has destroyed what there was of a middle class. The country is in ruins, unable to feed itself; half the population of 12 million people is dependent on outside food aid.”
Then Richburg drops the hammer on Mugabe’s communist paradise, “The currency is virtually worthless, with inflation over 200 million percent.”
You read that right – inflation is over 200 million percent.
In his handful of years in Africa, Richburg’s had an AK-47 shoved in his face in Somalia, witness the handiwork of boy-soldiers in Uganda, and seen the stacks of corpses in Zaire prepared for dumping into mass grave.
The very first sentence of the first chapter leaves little doubt as to what a gut-wrenching horror story his first-person account of what Africa is really like: “I watched the dead float down a river in Tanzania.” Richburg describes men, women, pregnant women and girls, children… even babies, bloated, discolored, some disemboweled, some with limbs macheted off, all floating downstream to Lake Victoria.
But what really caused an avalanche of hate from the American Left were these few short paragraphs (emphasis mine);
Sometime, maybe four hundred years ago, one of my ancestors was taken from his village, probably by a local chieftain. He was shackled in leg irons, kept in a holding pen or a dark pit, possibly at Goree Island off the coast of Senegal. And then he was put in the crowded, filthy, hold of a ship for the long and treacherous voyage across the Atlantic to the New World.
Many slaves died on that voyage. But not my ancestor. Maybe it was because he was strong, maybe just stubborn, or maybe he had an irrepressible will to live. But he survived, and ended up in forced slavery working on plantations in the Caribbean. Generations on down the line, one of his descendants was taken to South Carolina. Finally, a more recent descendant, my father, moved to Detroit to find a job in an auto plant during the Second World War.
And so it was that I came to be born in Detroit and that 35 years later, a black man born in white America, I was in Africa, birthplace of my ancestors, standing at the edge of a river not as an African but as an American journalist – a mere spectator – watching the bloated bodies of black Africans cascading over a waterfall. And that’s when I thought about how, if things had been different, I might have been one of them -or might have met some similarly anonymous fate in one of the countless ongoing civil wars or tribal clashes on this brutal continent. And so I thank God my ancestor survived that voyage.
Thank God my ancestor got out, because, now, I am not one of them.
In short, thank God that I am an American.
Never let it be said that Tucker Carlson doesn’t have a flair for words.
In a breaking story, The Washington Post is in full melt-down mode over President Trump’s comments in a meeting regarding immigration from El Salvador, Haiti and yet unnamed African nations, The Donald supposedly let loose with;
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
Now quite done pissing people off, the President then queried as to why America isn’t bringing in “more people from countries like Norway.”
Enter The Tucker.
Never one to shy away from pearl clutchers or professional snowflakes, the Fox News opinion-meister took to Twitter with a cold slap of reality directly in the face of the perpetually offended;
Option A: El Salvador isn’t a “shithole,” so they don’t need 17 years of Temporary Protected Status, and migrants from there should be sent home immediately. Option B: El Salvador is, in fact, a “shithole.” https://t.co/sea1sKoY8K
— Tucker Carlson (@TuckerCarlson) January 11, 2018
It’s been awhile since any of us can recall the POTUS having a televised roundtable meeting with senators and congressmen of both parties.
To be honest, I can’t remember that ever happening. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it never happened, I’m just saying that this political junkie was born in the ’50s and nothing even close to today’s historical meeting held by President Trump leaps to mind (full meeting in video below).
One of the more prominent subjects discussed was DACA (Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program), which certainly appeared to me as a done deal.
Well, Trump certainly dangled the DACA carrot in front of the drooling Dems, almost daring them to accept his offer to sign-off on DACA if the Democrats agreed to:
Now I realize that the machinations of politics is based on compromise, so no matter how much I want to see Trump get 100 percent of what he wants, the nature of the beast demands some give-and-take.
But one thing I’ve noticed, the Democrats love touting of the 690,000 “Dreamers”, a number are serving in the Armed Forces.
After some very basic research, I found that a mere 900 DACA enrollees either now of have ever served in the military. That’s just slightly above one-tenth of one percent.
Something else that I noticed, both Democrat and Republican members of Congress had quite the habit of referring to those in DACA as “kids”. It was only Trump that corrected that particular Infantilization.
Yet another few facts came to light that I’m sure the like-minded should be aware of;
DACA had no requirement of English fluency, as evidenced by the application form that had a space to list the translator used to complete the form. The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that “perhaps 24 percent of the DACA-eligible population fall into the functionally illiterate category and another 46 percent have only ‘basic’ English ability.”
Unfortunately, many Dreamers are poorly educated. Only 49 percent of DACA beneficiaries have a high school education, even though a majority are now adults.
But the pièce de résistance regarding the Dreamers is this;
The Obama administration did not check the background of each DACA beneficiary, despite a requirement that they have no felony convictions and pose no threat to national security. Only a few randomly selected DACA applicants were ever actually vetted.
This may explain why, by August this year, more than 2,100 DACA beneficiaries had had their eligibility pulled because of criminal convictions and gang affiliation.
Throwing their opponents in “psychiatric hospitals” is what the Soviets did…
Hell hath no fury like a Democrat who thinks they’re right. By their own words and actions, they’ve proved themselves to be overly-emotional, vindictive, and probably worse of all, their obstinacy in error.
No, our ever-weepy political opposition has the act of hyper-hysterics down to a science.
Case in point would be a report from the reliably far-left Vox.com as the lay out the (achem) “proof” that President Trump needs to be removed from the Oval Office under the auspices of the XXV Amendment.
In what’s suppose to be real news, Vox.com writer Eliza Barclay recently had a nice game of underhand softball catch, err… I mean interviewed Dr Bandy X. Lee, an assistant professor in forensic psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine.
Despite Dr Lee failing to ever examine President Trump, she’s not only edited a book entitled The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President ($13.99 on Amazon), the good doctor has also “briefed a dozen members of Congress — Democrats and one Republican — on the president’s mental state.”
However, Dr Lee’s literary actions have resulted in some blow-back from her fellow physicians;
These efforts have not been welcomed by all of Lee’s colleagues in psychiatry — some say her warnings are unethical and break the Goldwater Rule, the American Psychiatric Association’s stipulation that its members never publicly discuss the mental health of a public figure. One esteemed fellow psychiatrist accused her in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine of having “misguided and dangerous” morality.
Yet Lee’s overt and arrogant dismissal of the American Psychiatric Association’s Goldwater Rule being quite possibly the least of her transgressions against both medical professionalism and political objectivism, her medical proof seems to this layman as very much in the Lacking Department.
Cited by Barclay as examples of Dr Lee’s alleged psychiatric evidence of Trump being off the deep-end;
In actuality, the “anti-Muslim” videos Trump retweeted were actually two videos of Muslim violence, as well as a singular video of Muslim desecration and destruction of a Christian artifact.
Well, yeah. That’s understandable, especially in the knowledge that the last quarter century of presidents have done nothing in regards to the North Korean nuclear except to pass the buck to whatever unfortunate bastard gets elected long after they themselves have comfortably retired.
Does “provoking” and “alienating” our allies have anything to do with telling our NATO “allies” to get off their collective dead-asses and contribute the measly 2 percent of their GDP like they previously promised to?
Hold on. By recognizing the obvious, that makes Trump mentally deranged and incapable of completing his legally elected term of office? Seriously?
I can’t help but wonder if the good doctor might argue against all dogs being mammals, or the sun rises in the east, or if 2+2=4.
Other than being as medical doctor, Lee also holds an MDiv (Master of Divinity) degree. In light of her so-called evidence of Trump’s mental illness, maybe she should take a bit of Christ’s advice: “Physician, heal thyself.”
Did you know that the Russians actually put forth a huge effort to convince the American people the the recently elected President Donald Trump had no business being moving to the White House, and actually sought to de-legitimize his win in 2016?
If you didn’t know, don’t feel bad. The Establishment Media has either given this bombshell news either scant attention, if not completely ignored it.
With the Swamp Democrats and their GOP Establishment allies, along with their always reliable media stooges, this up-to-date Axis of Evil has done everything in their power to persuade the people that evil Donald Trump was secretly colluding with equally evil Vladimir Putin to steal the presidential election from the virginal Hillary Clinton.
But amazingly enough, Facebook’s general counsel attorney Colin Stretch testified before the Senate’s Judiciary Committee’s Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee, the Democrat and RINO narrative has been turned on its head.
As reported by Politico’s Nancy Scola and Ashley Gold (emphasis mine);
Top lawyers from Facebook and Twitter said Tuesday that Russian-linked posts and advertisements placed on the social networks after Election Day sought to sow doubt about President Donald Trump’s victory.
Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch told a Senate Judiciary panel that content generated by a Russian troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency after Nov. 8 centered on “fomenting discord about the validity of [Trump’s] election.” That’s a change from Russia’s pre-election activity, which was largely centered on trying to denigrate Hillary Clinton, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in a January report.
“During the election, they were trying to create discord between Americans, most of it directed against Clinton. After the election you saw Russian-tied groups and organizations trying to undermine President Trump’s legitimacy. Is that what you saw on Facebook?” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) asked at the hearing.
Stretch and his Twitter counterpart, Sean Edgett, called that an “accurate” statement.
However as NewsBusters.org reporter Kyle Drennen published, the big three network news channels failed to objectively and honestly report the unvarnished news as it was breaking on Capitol Hill (emphasis mine);
While the broadcast networks all eagerly hyped social media executives being hauled before Congress on Tuesday to testify about Russian interference in the 2016 election, only CBS covered a revelation from the hearing that Russia sought to undermine Donald Trump’s legitimacy as president after the campaign was over.
On Tuesday, The Hill reported a specific example of how Russian-backed groups worked to undermine Trump immediately after the election. A left-wing protest against the then-President-elect was attended by thousands of demonstrators outside Trump Tower on November 12, 2016 and was “organized by the Facebook page for BlackMattersUS, a Russian-linked group that sought to capitalize on racial tensions between black and white Americans.”
At least CBS noted the fact that the President was a target of Russian propaganda, NBC and ABC didn’t bother to include that detail in their coverage of the hearing. Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News had a full report on the testimony and Wednesday’s Today show offered a 25-second news brief on how “officials from Facebook and Google and Twitter took a lashing from lawmakers over Russia’s involvement in last year’s presidential election.”
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.”
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:
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.
For violent resistance to work it’d need to be organized. Individual acts can be understandable, but likely counterproductive/ineffective.
— Jesse Benn (@JesseBenn) June 14, 2017
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.

Al Sharpton is the gift that just keeps giving. No matter how many rich white liberals keep putting the “Reverend” without a church on television, Sharpton just keeps making himself look, well… stupid.
Never one to shy away hucksterism and shameless self-promotion, be it at the expense of Tawana Brawley or hawking car title loans aimed at poor people (at 300 percent interest), count on Reverend Al to have the shine of the camera lights on him.
But here’s what I consider the most glaringly obvious first clue to anyone with even half a brain as to what a complete fraud this guy is — his inability to intelligently speak the English language.
Case in point: While speaking before an audience at the New Mount Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church in West Garfield Park, located on the West Side of Chicago, IL, the good Reverend launched into his standard tirade against President Trump.
Possibly at the regret of every person on the planet who values a good education, reporter Kyle Becker of the Independent Journal Review notes other than his usual anti-Trump screed, Sharpton recently whipped himself up into another of his glassy-eyed hissy fits, but this time it was aimed directly at the president’s eldest daughter, Ivanka.
In what could best be described as unworthy of a fourth grade drop-out;
“They say now she ain’t got no title. She ain’t got no role. We ain’t payin’ her no money. But she can see everything classified.”
Granted, the Grammar Police should have immediately booked him on multiple counts of attempted murder of the Mother Tongue.
Seriously, is even a count or two of felonious use of double-negatives with intent to dumb-down asking too much?
Ivanka into the White House? It’s like a coup, and the dictator’s family is moving into the palace as it prepares to the loot the country.

— Bernadette Meehan (@MeehanBM) March 20, 2017
Another example of Sharptonisms at their best would be during the Trayvon Martin controversy, the MSNBC court jester was quoted as eruditely stating (see video below);
Don’t talk to us like we stupid, don’t talk to us like we ig’nint.
Other than dumping verbs faster than CNN distances themselves from anything even remotely resembling objective journalism, Sharpton’s on the fly grammatic contractions (ie: Ghettoese) are actually quite impressive… in a snake oil salesman kind of way.
Ahh, but this isn’t the first time Sharpton dazzled the world with his ig’nince of the Queen’s English.
As opined at New Jersey’s Kean College in 1994:
White folks was in caves while we was building empires.
We [blacks] taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.
I’m not exactly sure why Sharpton would be bragging about blacks teaching paganistic astrology. You think he might have meant “astronomy”?
President Trump has shown no indication that he’ll be pivoting anytime soon to the political center, despite what constant cry from the mainstream media to do such. Continue reading “Trump freezes Federal hiring, cuts off money for int’l abortions, ends TPP”
