Venice's first she gondolier is a he

Rome -- A gondolier who became famous ten years ago for being the first woman to become Venice's first woman gondolier in a male-dominated profession, told the truth about himself. 

Yes, she's a dude.

Alex Hai spoke in a lengthy interview with Radiolab on Wednesday of Facebook.
"My gosh, she rows like a dude"

"It is inaccurate to refer to me as 'she' or 'Alexandra' for any reason," he wrote.

In 2007, Hai had a lengthy court battle to become the first official female gondolier to row unsuspecting tourists around Venice.

The man said in a Facebook post that he had mastered rowing "while in the body of a woman." But added that he was not a woman "and the struggle of feminism is not my personal struggle. I simply want to do the work I'm passionate about."

So Hai lied about his gender and admits he still pees from the vertical. Hopefully not into the canal.



Johnny Depp out of his depth

Johnny Depp has been acting strange lately and it has people wondering if he's deteriorating into a plunge into psychosis or perhaps his brain is on drugs.

The faltering actor joked on Thursday about assassinating President Trump asking "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president . . . maybe it's time." Yes, the violent ex- husband of Amber Heard alludes to the idea that he wants to kill the president of the United States.

Legal documents published by Deadline Hollywood claim Depp's team was aware that he had "gotten physical" with his ex-wife.

Heard said Johnny abused her during their relationship and they settled their divorce in August 2016. It's reported that Heard collected $7 million from Depp and didn't stop at "Go."

Although Depp denied the abuse ever took place and that Heard merely wanted to be publicly heard from for her "fifteen minutes of fame," it was later revealed by house staff and security that Depp was indeed abusive to her.

The un-comedic actor has been undergoing serious financial problems which has become public knowledge in recent months. But more legal documents published by Deadline reveal that Depp refused to begin flying commercial after his business manager begged him to "take it easy" on the holiday spending.

In his latest "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie the Hollywood Reporter said that Depp was drinking excessively during the filming and was constantly late to the set, leaving "hundreds of extras waiting for hours at a time" to film scenes with him.

One source called Depp a "train wreck" and claimed he got into a physical altercation at one point.

Even some of his most loyal fans (aka 'fanatics') wonder if he is having a mental breakdown.

One Twitter user wrote: "Depp is an idiot who's life is in shambles. Another celebrity meltdown." 
--Ruth Hooper (@Hooper19Hooper) June 23, 2017.

Some call for Depp to be boycotted over the legal documents that mention Heard and his comments about Trump.

The actor's latest "Pirates" movie has received only mediocre reaction domestically.

Hopefully President Trump's Secret Service team along with the FBI will put an end to these Hollywood cretins from making threats against his life. It's illegal to do so and the law ought to be followed in all cases of threats to the life of a U.S. president.



MSNBC analyst compares Trump to 'suicide bomber'

Elise Jordan, an MSNBC political talking head compared President Trump to a "suicide bomber" on Thursday. The name-calling came after he admitted he didn't have any recordings of the conversations he had with former FBI director James Comey.

Jordan is a former Bush White House aide but now works for progressive MSNBC and is a TIME contributor. She appeared on "MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin" on Thursday.

"It is a sad day when you cannot depend on the president's word, and my advice to Republicans who cozy up to him is it's just like hugging a suicide bomber--he blows you up in the process with him," the leftist Jordan said.

"That's a little strong, Elise," Melvin responded.

"If you went out on a limb, if you're a Republican who went on a limb and defended Donald Trump over saying he's got tapes that are gonna back up his point of view, you just got blown up too," she answered inaccurately.

Trump never said he had tapes of the conversations, although he alluded to the possibility. It turned out that Comey, perhaps believing he actually did have tapes, ended up by admitting that he told Trump he wasn't the target of the investigation. No Republican who actually listened to what Trump said feels as if they went out "on a limb" for him.

Evidently, Jordan hears what she wants to hear so she can spin it the way she wants to spin it. This is exactly what Trump talks about when he refers to "fake news," which, by the way, is a term invented by the left.

Her incredibly stupid comments came after the president posted a two-part tweet regarding tapes of conversations he had with Comey, who wrote memos detailing his talks with Trump. He testified that he would be eager to hear those tapes.

"Lordy," Comey began, as he used the Lord's nickname in a blasphemous statement aimed at making him look as if he and the Lord were buddies, "I hope there are tapes."

Trump said of Comey's statement, "With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are 'tapes' or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings."

Jordan said Trump "wasted the country's collective time" with the speculation over the tapes. That's ridiculous--it served his purpose and possibly got Comey to come clean with the Senate Intelligence Committee.

But the fact that Trump doesn't know if any recordings of him exist should give us all something to worry about. If someone can record the president without his knowledge is beyond scary.


Lordy, Comey visits the 'Gray Lady'

Former FBI director and failed forward for the NBA James Comey surreptitiously visited the New York Times on Thursday with his relatively short wife, according to my source who uses the pseudonym Vinny Boombots.

Now that President Trump admitted he made the whole thing up about making secret recordings about his conversations with Comey, it was obvious that "the coast is clear" for the 'tall drink of water' to speak with the 'Gray Lady' and tell them how he was wronged by POTUS.

This was one of the few public appearances Comey has made since he admitted to "taking a leak at The Times," Vinny said.

Comey kept his coolers on (sunglasses from India) and looked straight ahead as he and his wife, Patrice Failor (rhymes with "failure") also wearing shades, diddy-bopped along Eighth Avenue. 

Vinny thought he noticed tiny tears gently leaking down Comey's cheeks and it gave him pause as he considered the purpose of the emotionally vulnerable man's visit to The Times. 

Vinny couldn't ascertain the purpose of the visit, but it came just weeks after President Trump suggested Comey may be responsible for more leakage about the administration since Trump canned him.

Comey admitted he was the leaker to The Times regarding a private, unorthodox meeting he had with Trump just before the firing.

According to Boombots, there is a high probability that Comey will try to have The Times revisit the Russian investigation since it hasn't been in the news recently and Comey had his feelings hurt.

But if Trump did anything untoward in the private conversation with Comey, asking him to lay off of Flynn, and the former FBI director did nothing about it, then he would be just as guilty as the president for asking.

After he was fired on May 8th, Comey gave details of the memo to 'a friend' at The Times in response to a Trumptweet who threatened: "Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

Always that irrelevant exclamation point!

At his testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee in June, Comey said he believed the president was subtly asking him to drop the investigation into Flynn and that due to his failure to do so, he was fired.

"Yeah, Donald Trump is as subtle as a baseball bat to the head," Vinny said. 

Trump said Comey was canned for the way he handled Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when she was Secretary of State. He also believes that Comey is likely the source of many leaks in his administration.

"I believe the James Comey leaks will be far more prevalent than anyone ever thought possible. Totally illegal? Very 'cowardly!' Trump said June 11th. 

Although Trump admitted he made no recordings, he foolishly said that someone else could have. 

"That should scare the crap out of all of us who takes Trump seriously--to think the President of the United States doesn't know if his White House conversations are being recorded," Vinny said.



Person charged with giving top-secret docs to China.

Alleged human excrement
A Virginia traitor, Kevin Patrick Mallory, 60, was arrested Thursday at his home in Leesburg, Virginia. He has been charged with espionage for transmitting top-secret documents to Chinese officials.

The scum wafer is to appear in U.S. District Court in Alexandria.

Mallory is a self-employed consultant, a US Army veteran and a POS. The charges involve gathering or delivering defense information to aid a foreign government and for making material false statements under the federal Espionage Act, something that Hillary Clinton was able to get away with based on her political connections.

Malloryis fluent in Mandarin and traveled to Shanghai in April. He was caught with $16,500 in his carry-on bags when he returned to O'Hare International Airport. He failed to declare the money.

In May, the FBI interviewed him and he admitted he met with two people from a Chinese think tank, whom he believed were Chinese intelligence agents. He told the FBI they gave him a special communications device for transmitting documents. 

He said in the affidavit that the only documents he transferred were two unclassified blacked out security classification documents that he had written on U.S. policy matters.

When the transmitted documents were analyzed, it showed that two of them were classified as "secret," and one of them was "top secret."

Court records indicate the alleged traitor worked as a special agent for the Diplomatic Security Service at the State Department. It is not yet known if Hillary Clinton was involved, but it isn't out of the realm of possibility.

If convicted, Mallory could face life in prison, and if certain conditions are met, even face the death penalty. But the chances of the latter being meted out are as likely as Hillary Clinton being tried and convicted of the same charge when she wittingly used a private email server to transmit and receive classified information (that went beyond "top secret" in the form of "Special Access Programs").

Let's wait and watch what happens in both cases.

Joe Biden: still sleazy after all these years

Uncle Joe Biden knows a thing or two about grabbing an unsolicited smooch and touch from unsuspecting women and girls. He has a long history of sleazy behavior.

Everyone loves Uncle Joe, except his victims and those who think he's a pervert and others who think he's kind of an idiot.

Joe's latest attack happened Wednesday at Morgan State University when a young black woman posted a video on Instagram from her college graduation.

The video begins with the woman and the former vice president (no, not that kind of vice) smiling into the camera. Then out of nowhere, Biden embraces her cheek without her consent. 

When she realizes what's going on, she lets out an incoherent scream and then pulls away in terror.

Biden was the commencement speaker at the university where he scours the campus in search of a squeeze or an 'innocent' tweak.

Enjoy the video if you can deal with an American vice president acting like the guy in an alley with the raincoat.




CNN looks like a puppy died before their eyes

According to Certainly Not News (CNN), the Georgia election between Jon Ossoff and Karen Handel was a referendum on President Trump. Of course, they said this before the election results were in.

The election results are in.

Well, it looks as if the country still stands with Trump and rejects the Democrats now that the GOP 'Handeled' them and beat their Ossoff.

The photo header sums up how CNN weathered the loss. You would think each one of them lost a beloved family member or saw a puppy die.

Just as CNN was about to cut to a break in the election coverage, the internet caught Mark Preston, their politics editor, as well as political analyst Gloria Borger, political director David Chalian and so-called reporter Dana Bash looking as if they wanted to commit suicide.

Blogs like this one are sharing the photo for your viewing pleasure.

The Republicans are now 5 - 0 in special elections.

Thank you Obama and Hillary .  .  .  you worked your magic.


Racist professor wants [expletive] black people to be left for dead

A Hartford, Ct. sociology professor labeled black people "inhuman a**holes" and endorsed the idea that first responders should have allowed Rep. John Lewis (D- Ga.) to die when he was attacked years ago at a civil rights rally along with others who marched with him.

Hartford College's John E. Wilkinson III posted the hashtag "LetThem[f***ers] Die" below and emotional message on Facebook directed at black people.

His Facebook account has since been locked but this was captured on it: "It is past time for the newly oppressed white man to do what people who believe themselves to be 'black' will not do--put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of blackness and their black power oppressive system."

The angry old white professor said that he's "fed the [f***] up with self-identified black's daily violence directed at every group not black nor Christian. "The time is now to confront these inhuman [f***ers] and end this now."

It is not known whether Professor Wilkinson owns a firearm but we pray that he doesn't.

Wilkinson then linked a story from "Caucasian" which offers a list of instances in which black people should be left for dead because of the violence being perpetrated by such groups as Black Lives Matter.

Referring to blacks Wilkinson said, "If you see them drowning, if you see them in a burning building . . . if they are in a park and they turn their weapons on each other, do nothing."

"Let them [f***ing] die."

*****CORRECTION*****

Sorry, I had the names and the race of the professor wrong. I even got the name of the school wrong--it was Trinity College and the professor is a black man named John Eric Williams. 

And he wasn't talking about John Lewis being left to die, he was talking about Rep. Steve Scalise and the other white congressmen who were shot.

Chee! How'd that one get past me?

Well, as it happens, Trinity President Joanne Berger-Sweeney issued a statement on the racist professor's statement saying "I denounce hate speech in all its forms. I will explore all options to resolve this matter, and I will be back in touch with our community members with our decisions."

This is going to be a tough call for the school's president. After all, it was a black man saying hateful things about white people. 

But of course, to save his job, Williams issued a statement to local TV (NBC Connecticut) writing:
It is evident to anyone who carefully reads my posts on Facebook and Twitter that I did not call for the death of all self-identified 'whites.' I merely attached the hashtag to my post derived from a blog article written by Son of Baldwin entitled "Let Them All -----Die.' This was an admittedly provocative move to get readers to pay attention to my reasoned, reasonable, and yes angry argument. ... I posted my comments on social media to draw the attention of the readers to the current dire state of white supremacy in the nation. 
So don't believe your lying eyes when you read what he wrote. He was just making a point. "Let them [f***ing] die" simply means "Let them eat cake."
White privilege 

But seriously, if indeed those racist statements were made by supremacist 'whities,' they wouldn't be so supreme after all. 

Nobody should get a free pass to be a disgusting racist because racial injustice was done to them--it cannot be excused and it sucks no matter who's guilty of it.

The fact that Williams is teaching young people and impressing them with his hateful ideology of anti-white racism, should qualify him for finding work elsewhere. 

Maybe he could work for Rev. Al Sharptongue.
