Liberal media ed boards go after Trump before debate

The once upon a time newspaper of record, The New York Times, and the other rag, Washington Post, attacked Donald Trump on the day of the first presidential debate. No longer providing journalistic coverage in an unbalanced way, both bird cage liners tried to make the case that Trump should not be president, but the shrill shrieking felon should.

Trump is gaining on Clinton in the polls and the liberals are worried that she will not be coronated as she is "supposed to be."

Rather than simply endorsing the self-serving "Queen of the Scream," The Times wrote an editorial entitled, "Why He Should Not Be President." It was an essay seeking to destroy Trump's claims about his assets as a leader and called him a "man far more consumed with himself than with the nation's well-being."

Rather than seeing the Democratic party candidate as a person who put her own "convenience" ahead of national security, or perhaps used her private email server to hide shady dealings with foreign donations and the Clinton Foundation, The Times is attacking the one quality that every person seeking the office of president must possess: ego/narcissism--that is, the belief that he or she is the one person who can best run the nation.

If Clinton put the needs of the country first, there would have been no private email server and there would be four Americans still alive who had died in Benghazi.

"Voters attracted by the force of the Trump personality should pause and take note of the precise qualities he exudes as an audaciously different politician: bluster, savage mockery of those who challenge him, degrading comments about women, mendacity, crude generalizations about nations and religions."

Bluster is not necessarily a bad thing. It shows strength and I suspect if Trump were president, Iran wouldn't be flexing their muscles in the Straits of Hormuz. 

Mockery is wrong. I agree with The Times on that issue. But that's who Trump is, and while it doesn't excuse schoolyard behavior, it was the one tool in his debate arsenal that worked for him, and that was his bottom line.

Degrading comments about women? What did he say and what was in his mind and heart when he said it? Nobody can know that. But liberals have always, always, always used the gender and race cards to win elections because their policies suck. They take away individual liberties to run a business, to speak freely.

And what Trump has said about nations is better than what Obama has said about ours--we are not only exceptional, but we are more exceptional than other nations. Obama doesn't see it that way and Hillary has taken millions of dollars from countries that treat women like possessions, while pretending to be for women's rights.

Nothing Trump has said about Islam was crude because the truth about Islam is that it is generally political with a tendency toward global violence. Anyone who denies that does so at their own peril.

So the Clinton campaign are trying to stack the deck for the debate. Hillary is short and Trump is tall--she wants a stool to gain height. 

She wants Lester Holt, the moderator for NBC, to do her job of fact-checking Trump, just like she wants her husband to run the economy for her as well, if she is elected.

Hillary is scared because Donald is catching up, and tonight might put him over the top if he doesn't blow it.

Which begs the question: will Monica Lewinsky be there?

The Washington Post said in its editorial that "the stakes could not be higher," and said that Trump has "amply demonstrated his unworthiness" to be president.

It's comforting to know that leftist newspapers are now determining who is and who is not worthy of being president. There was a time when it was up to the American voters to decide that .  .  .  especially those Americans who were legal citizens and were still alive.

Journalism was on life support, but unfortunately, it succumbed to the demands of the left.

Trump spokesman Jason Miller issued a statement entitled: "The Sun Also Rose In The East This Morning," in response to the editorials of both rags:
"The news that the ultra-liberal, elitist, out-of-touch New York Times Editorial Board endorsed an ultra-liberal, elitist, out-of-touch candidate in Hillary Clinton has to be some of the least surprising news ever. The New York Times' Editorial Board is the embodiment of the rigged system Donald Trump is running against."
Trump, as I've mentioned before, was not my first choice for the GOP nomination, but now that he's the only viable choice for the GOP, he has my vote.

Not only is Hillary Clinton not fit physically, morally and ethically, she has a record of proof that she is incompetent and shows extremely poor judgment based on that record.

I hope she has a coughing spell to prove one of the above points.

UPDATE: Houston shooter wounds 9, has been neutralized

Houston, TX. -- At least six people have been shot by an unidentified man. The incident occurred near the corner of Weslayan and Bissonnet in southwest Houston.

Residents have been told to avoid the area at this time as police bravely check for additional shooters.

Police used Twitter to say that the active shooter is no longer active--he was shot and "neutralized" by police.  One witness reported that he heard about 100 "steady gunshots" being fired.

Six people with non-life-threatening injuries were taken to the hospital. Among them was the son of local attorney Skip Cornelius. He had been hit while sitting in his car but was not hurt badly.

The police profiled the man as "black" and used a revolver to shoot his victims. Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panthers both have no comment at this time, but refused to praise the police who rushed to the scene to protect the public.

"He has been neutralized," said the fire chief. When asked if the shooter had been killed he responded, "I don't know if he is dead, but he is no longer a threat to the public."

At one point, police surrounded a vehicle on Law Street and the bomb squad was called in.

UPDATE: It was learned the shooter was a "disgruntled lawyer" who opened fire at a southwest Houston shopping mall. He was shot dead by police and he was identified as Nathan DeSai. He had previously worked at McDaniel & DeSai LLP but the law practice had closed down last year.

Earlier reports mistakenly described the shooter as black.

I'm white: I must be a racist

I am white, therefore I'm a racist. I really wish I wasn't a racist--it probably upsets my wife. She isn't white. But she will understand--she's smart and she knows I love her.

What if she doesn't believe that a white racist can love a woman of color? Especially a racist like I'm supposed to be? 

I'm even voting for Donald Trump. Not that I ever thought he was the best GOP candidate, but I'd rather remove one of my testicles with a rusty Swiss Army knife  than vote for Hillary Clinton. 

Students at the University of Kansas' Young America's Foundation (YAF) also discovered that their melanin made them racists, just like me.

The YAF students who advocate for "safe spaces" and "trigger warnings" had their safe spaces attacked by a group of social justice jihadists, inspired by Trigglypuff, who invaded their meeting to discuss that issue. 

The socialists yelled obscenities and verbally abused the YAF students at an event called "Stand with Me."

The event was in response to a video and poem posted by a transgender student Micha Cox, who said she was harassed and berated as she was walking across campus. 

YAF was expecting protests, but not to the degree they got. They called YAF students "racist" and "white supremacist" and lectured the students about their "white privilege."

According to Fox News, the anger began over a quote from conservative Ben Shapiro that the KU YAF posted on their Facebook page: "facts don't care about your feelings."

I guess groups who tend to put all people of one race into the same category, or believe them all to have the same negative qualities, are the real racists. And they are often the ones who support BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) an anti-Israel strategy. That also makes them anti-Semitic.

I'm glad I'm the kind of racist they say I am--I'm white. 

It wasn't my choice to be white, anymore than it was their choice to be stupid and intolerant. 

Have you noticed how divided the country has become in the 8 years Obama has divided us into racial and political groups.

Mexico's immigration situation

Mexico City -- It's encouraging to see Mexico experiencing immigration problems because it serves as a wakeup call to the immigration situation that we face under Obama's policy approach.

Mexico said Saturday that they've been inundated by a surge of 4,749 Haitian, African and Asian migrants entering by their southern border through the Tapachula immigration center in the past few days. They will try to reach the California border and many will likely seek asylum, which Obama will likely grant them because they will likely vote for the Democratic party in the near future.

The National Immigration Institute of Mexico say the migrants entered the country between September 21 and 23. They believe most of them are Haitian, but didn't break them down according to country of origin.

The institute said a total of 7,800 Haitian migrants entered the country through Guatemala between January 1st and September 21st, along with 1,701 from Africa and 3,753 from various parts of Asia.

For some strange reason, none of the migrants have requested to stay in beautiful, sunny Mexico. They cannot be sent back to their home countries so Mexico gives them 20-day temporary visas to allow them time to get to the United States and be out of their hair.

The Africans in question come mainly from the Congo, Guinea, Ghana, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, Sudan and Nigeria. They likely bring with them low-level skills, illnesses and perhaps a few Islamists who would like to to their terror thing.

Mexico is smarter than Obama and I suspect Trump will have problems getting them to build the wall he promises, but I hope I'm wrong.

No Flowers at the debate but maybe something better

In an atypical move by the Trump campaign, Bill Clinton's ex-concubine will not attend the presidential debate on Monday, according to the Vice Presidential GOP co-runner, Mike Pence. The move is considered atypical because typically, Mr. Trump is known to be a potent counter-puncher and with Hillary Clinton's desperation move of bringing billionaire Mark Cuban to sit in the front row of the event, in most cases one would expect Trump to react aggressively.

But I believe it's a smart move on Trump's part. 

First of all, Gennifer Flowers was not Hillary's lover, although the idea that she might have had the additional task of serving both is not so far out of the question. 

Rather than bringing in one of the "bimbos" (as Hillary called the women her husband sexually abused) it's better leave them out of the scene. Flowers' presence might make Hillary look like a poor, innocent victim and gain the sympathy of low information liberals (which by definition includes almost all liberals).

Secondly, there are other choices that might better suit the Trump campaign, choices that would show Hillary's true colors (which is not red, white and blue, only green). 

The choice I believe Donald should make would be to bring in the families of the four Americans killed in Benghazi. Have them all sit side-by-side in the front row and have Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith,  mumble loud enough only for Lester Holt's microphone to pick it up: "You lied to me, Hillary. You lied to me. You stood by my son's coffin and lied to me."

Or simply have them all stare Hillary down, arms folded, sardonic smiles.

I would also invite Monica Lewinsky and have her wear her black beret and fire engine red lipstick for old times sake. 

I would have Monica sit near Bill, again for old times sake.

Although Monica might actually support Hillary's presidency (remember what I said about liberals) just having Hillary see her face would throw the Queen of Denial for a loop.

"Hispanic" Turkish-born shooter arrested in zombie-like state

Burlington, Vermont -- the suspected gunman, Arcan Cetin (rhymes with Cretin) who is believed to have shot and killed five unarmed people at the Cascade Mall in Washington state, has been captured near his home in Oak Harbor, 30 miles from where the shooting occurred.

Cetin was originally described by the media as "Hispanic" just in case he was, but he wasn't. 

Cetin, 20, was spotted by Island County Sheriff's Lt. Mike Hawley who told reporters he saw the suspect near his home and immediately recognized him. He turned his patrol car around and arrested him without incident. Evidently, Cetin wasn't willing to go up against someone who was armed.

Mount Vernon Police Lt. Chris Cammock said the suspect had immigrated to the US from Turkey and was a "legal permanent resident." But it isn't clear when he came here.

Hawley said that when he arrested Cetin, "He said nothing," and that he was unarmed and carried a computer in a satchel. "He was kind of zombie-like."

Cetin was arrested last year for a simple assault, according to Hawley, but didn't elaborate on the incident. The Seattle Times reported that Cetin faced 3 domestic violence assault charges in Burlington and Island County. The victim is identified as Cetin's stepfather. Cetin was also arrested for a DUI.

On December 29th of last year, the suspect was told by a judge that he was not permitted to possess a firearm.

The enabler stepfather asked the judge not to impose a no-contact order because his stepson was "going through a hard time."

Cetin's arrest came almost exactly 24 hours after the shooting at the Macy's makeup counter at the mall. Four women died in the store and were identified as Sarai Lara, 16, a  high school student and cancer survivor; Belinda Galde, 64, and her mother, 95-year-old Beatrice Dotson; and Shyla Martin, 52, a makeup artist for Macy's; and Chuck Eagan, a maintenance worker for Boeing who was shot while helping his wife escape.

Washington state shooter caught

An arrest was made Saturday in a shooting at a Washington state mall in which five people were killed by a gunman. 

The suspect was taken into custody in Oak Harbor. He murdered four women and a man at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Wash. He was taken into custody about 30 miles from the mall and is identified as Arcan Cetin, 20, a native of Turkey. He went to high school in Oak Harbor.

No motive for the shooting is currently known, but the FBI did not suspect terrorism like they did not suspect terrorism when the father of Ahmad Rahami, another shooter, told them he suspected his son might be a terrorist. 

I guess that for the FBI to suspect terrorism as a motive, the person needs to be holding an ISIS or Al Qaeda flag in their hand as they scream "Allahu Akbar" and kill infidels.

The FBI appears to be increasingly losing credibility as an effective law enforcement agency ever since its director James Comey let Hillary Clinton get away without an indictment for using an illegal private server to send and receive classified material.

Three of the female victims were identified as of Saturday night. One was Sarai Lara, a 16-year-old cancer survivor. Her mother was shopping elsewhere in the mall when Sarai was killed.

Two other victims were Belinda Galde and her 95-year-old mother Beatrice Dotson.

Naive Mayor Steve Sexton spoke at a news conference and said that "There are people waking up this morning and their world has changed forever. The city of Burlington has probably changed forever, but I don't think our way of life needs to change."

Of course our way of life needs to change, first by removing our heads from our nether regions. Second by understanding that this is the new way of life and we better be prepared for it and be able to respond to it appropriately. Rather than seeing people with different political views as the enemy, we need to know who the real enemy is and to be able to call them by name.

In other words, we must identify the target and do whatever is necessary to defeat it.

I don't know whether or not this shooter was on a jihad killing spree or just a sick kid out to take lives. In fact, I don't know if there's much difference between the two groups.

But I do know that we need to be prepared to fight back with a strong police force that's supported not only with equipment, but with the support of the communities they bravely serve.

Protestors need to be allowed their First Amendment rights, but rioters need to be arrested and caged.

Organizations connected in any way with terrorism, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR and the other MB affiliated arms, as well as terror mosques, need to be put out of business and their leaders sent to their countries of origin.

The sooner we accept that change has come and we must adapt rather than stick our heads in the sand, the sooner we make it safe again for our progeny.

Pope urges a "sincere dialogue" between Christians and Muslims

The Vatican -- Pope Francis called for a "sincere dialogue" between Christians and Muslims and supposedly wasn't kidding--popes rarely make public jokes as such so we have to take His Holiness at his word.

He said this as he met grieving family members and survivors of France's Bastille Day attack. That was the one in which a truck driver plowed into a crowd trying to kill as many Christians as possible.

The pope believes a good heart-to-heart will help clear things up between the two religions.

In a surprising move, the pope also denounced violence this week in the name of religion, saying "there is no God of war." He met with 180 infidels who were wounded or left traumatized or in mourning since the July 14th attack that killed 86 innocent lives.

"We need to start a sincere dialogue and have fraternal relations between everybody, especially those who believe in a sole God who is merciful," he said as seriously as he could, without breaking into a smile, adding that this was "an urgent priority."

Pope Francis told the infidels, "It is with a feeling of great emotion that I am meeting with you, those who are suffering in body and in spirit because an evening of festivity turned into one of violence which struck blindly at all, without taking into account their origins or religion," he said,  speaking from a position of ignorance.

"We can only respond to the Devil's attacks with God's works which are forgiveness, love and respect for the other, even if they are different," he said, obviously never having actually read the Koran, Sira, Haditha or "Reliance of the Traveller."

Had he read any Islamic scripture, the pontiff would know that Islam calls for jihad, calls for such acts of violence by the believers and wouldn't sound like he has no idea what he's talking about.

Rather than calling upon the Christian community to have a "sincere dialogue" with the Muslim community, the pope should be calling for the Muslim community to stop killing people they believe are Christian so that they can have that dialogue.

Dead people make lousy dialoguers.
