Obama did nothing about Russia because his behind led

Former failed president Barack Hussein Obama was aware that Russia interfered with last year's presidential election and as is his wont, lead from his behind and did nothing about it.

President Trump spoke to "Fox & Friends Weekend" where he criticized the impotent Obama for allegedly doing "nothing" about the situation.

"I just heard today for the first time that (former President) Obama knew about Russia a long tome before the election, and he did nothing about it," Trump said. "The CIA gave him information on Russia a long time before the election.  . . . If he had the information, why didn't he do something about it?" he asked rhetorically.

President Trump has suggested the 'fake news' media has unreported the story, while going after the Trump team saying they colluded with Russia.

"I think it's a terrible theme in terms of getting elected," Trump said ungrammatically. "And more importantly, I think it's a terrible theme for the people of this country. Resist, obstruction. That is not what they want."

Two suggestions Mr. Trump: 1. speak in full sentences because we cannot read your mind; and 2. don't tweet for a whole month.




Cosby to do sexual assault town halls

Bill Cosby is planning town halls about sexual assault, the law and to teach young men how not to get caught with their pants down, so to speak.

"I don't want kids going through what I just went through," the 79-year-old former comedian said [or: "If there's a loophole in the law that's gonna help them avoid jail, I want them to know about it"].

Cosby's spokesman Andrew Wyatt told TV show "Good Day Alabama" that town halls might start as early as next month, [providing nobody else comes forward with another frivolous suit]. 

'The Cos' plans to discuss sexual assault and the legal system with the kids. It's like a hacker going 'white hat.'

Wyatt said that the issues involved with sexual assault were particularly important for young athletes with super-high hormone levels and access to drugs.

The proposed talks drew strong criticism from organizations that work with sexual assault victims as well as the scores of women Cosby allegedly sexually assaulted and the Jello Pudding company.

But Wyatt said that young people "need to know what they're facing when they're hanging out and partying," [and sexually assaulting women]. 

Wyatt spoke at WBRC Fox 6 News:

Wyatt: "Mr. Cosby wants to get back to work. We are now planning town halls, and we're going to be coming to this city sometime in July."

Host: "Really? Like a town hall just to talk with people?"

Wyatt: "To talk to young people. Because this is bigger than Bill Cosby. This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today. And they need to know what they're facing when they're hanging out and partying, when they're doing certain things that they shouldn't be doing. And it also affects, you know, married men [laughs]."

Host: "Is it kind of a do-what-I-say-and-not-as-I-do situation?"

Wyatt: "Right."

Ebonee Benson, a spokesperson for Camille Cosby, Bill's wife, also appeared on the program and said the town halls is also to discuss changing laws. "The statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault are being extended, so this is why people need to be educated on a brush against a shoulder; anything at this point can be considered sexual assault and it's a good thing to be educated about the laws."

In Cosby's case, the brush wasn't against a shoulder--it was further south of the equator.

Some say Cosby is attempting to teach men how to avoid legal trouble after they sexually assault someone.

"It would be more useful if Mr. Cosby would spend time talking with people about how not to commit sexual assault in the first place," said Jodi Omear, a RAINN spokeswoman. RAINN is an anti-sexual violence organization.

Gee, ya think?

The Women's March, a group that organized mass rallies after the Trump inauguration said on Twitter that "#RapeCulture is Bill Cosby planning town halls on how married men & male athletes can avoid sexual assault charges."

I hate to say it, but that sounds accurate.

'The Cos' may face another trial over accusations that he drugged and molested Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.

The Montgomery County DA Kevin Steele said he intends to retry the case after a jury couldn't reach a verdict after 52 hours of deliberations. 

Cosby still remains charged with three second-degree felony counts of aggravated indecent assault. Each count carries a minimum of five years in prison, and with Cosby, that could mean a life sentence.

Perhaps he should go for the Hillary defense and tell them the assaults were unintentional.

The Charmin Van-Go when you gotta go van

Have you ever needed to go to the bathroom in the middle of seeing the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting? Or maybe you're just out for a stroll in the East Village or hanging out at the fountain at Washington Square Park.

You can't go in the fountain--you'd be arrested.

Now Charmin, the toilet paper company has come up with an idea. They are rolling out an on-demand mobile toilet and calling it the Charmin Van-Go.

The original name The Charmin Dump Truck just didn't have the right sound to it. Neither did the other name: the Charmin Van-Gotta-Go.

The vehicle will undergo a two-day trial pilot program, but it's unclear whether this idea is going to be an ongoing program or not.

Like Uber, when you need to travel to a toilet, just call on Charmin Van-Go.

Anthony Anderson of the TV series "Blackish" has accompanied the mobile toilet on trips to Herald Square, Columbus Circle and Bryant Park (where he was able to score some good ganja). 

On Thursday, the van does Lincoln Center from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., then Rockefeller Center from 12 noon to 2 p.m. and High Line from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

To request a toilet session, go to CharminVanGo.com and follow the instructions to request the van.

"With just the touch of a few buttons, a totally private and super clean bathroom could be delivered directly to people in select New York City neighborhoods," Charmin said in a statement.

At Charmin, we aim to please . . . but remember, it's your aim that matters.



Caught on tape Dem. dickweed says he's 'glad' Scalise got shot

Was
Phil Montag, a Nebraska Democratic Party official was removed from his post on Thursday after he was recorded saying that he's "glad" House Majority Whip Steve Scalise got shot last week. In fact, the POS Montag also was heard to say on the audio recording that he wishes Scalise were "dead."
"His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to [expletive] kick people off [expletive] health care. I'm glad he got shot. I wish he was [expletive] dead."
The audio was posted on YouTube and Nebraska Chairwoman Jane Kleeb confirmed to the local media (FOX42) that the voice on the recording was, indeed, Montag's.

"We obviously condemn any kind of violence," she began, stating something that is anything but obvious, "whether it's comments on Facebook or comments in a meeting. Our country is better than the political rhetoric that is out there from both the far right and the far left."

A disgusting human being
Montag didn't deny the allegation--he did say those words, but in an interview with the Omaha World-Herald, he claimed his words were taken out of context and he was "horrified" by the shooting.

Nobody in Nebraska realized how badly Montag wanted to keep his job.

What Montag meant when he said, "I'm glad he got shot. I wish he was [f***ing] dead," he actually meant: "Gee, I hope he's going to recover and not [f***ing] die. That would be terrible. So young; so innocent. Can I keep my job?"

Yes--we ought not believe our lying ears.

Kleeb removed Montag from his post only one week after Nebraska Democratic Black Caucus Chair-racist Chelsey Gentry-Tipton was asked to resign over a Facebook post about Scalise and the attack on Republicans. 

She didn't resign and nothing further was done about her after posting a thread on the shooting: "Watching the congressman crying on live tv abt the trauma they experienced. Y is this so funny tho?,'" the Omaha World-Herald reported.

In the same thread, the creep reportedly said, "The very people that push pro NRA legislation in efforts to pad their pockets with complete disregard for human life. Yeah, having a hard time feeling bad for them."

That stuff is pure evil and misunderstood.

But she's a good progressive.




The plot sickens as Lynch called to respond to "political interference" allegations

Well, well, well, the Senate Judiciary Committee has finally and formally asked former Attorney General Loretta Lynch along with others, to respond to the allegations of "political interference" in the FBI's Hillary Clinton email probe, according to  a letter  released Friday from the office of Chuck Grassley.

The catalyst for the inquiry was, in part, a series of media reports that questioned Lynch's involvement in the investigation into former Secretary of State and two-time loser of the presidential election Hillary Clinton's use of a private, illegal email server.

Former fired FBI Director James Comey suggested in Senate testimony that Lynch had him downplay the investigation and call it a "matter" rather than what it actually was--the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigating

Cowardly Comey did as he was told, like a good boy.

But I hold very little hope that justice will be done--Hillary will get away with violating the Espionage Act, and Lynch will get away with colluding with Bill Clinton, just like Obama got away with colluding with Russia as attested to by the open mike with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev. 

"The reports come amidst numerous allegations of political inference in controversial and high-profile investigations spanning the current and previous administrations," Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley's office said in a statement.

Big deal--nothing is going to change--it's sickening.





Facebook too scared to make LGBTQ stand in countries that kill non-heterosexuals

Facebook is scared to death (literally) to participate in the oppression of LGBT folks by withholding a rainbow avatar in countries in which the local religion prescribes the killing of gays, lesbians, transgenders, queers, people of different religions, especially Jews, atheists and so on and so forth, etc., etc.

The company rolled out a new "reaction
" feature in June, or LGBT Pride Month, a month in which people who are sexually involved with people of the same sex, or those who have their genitalia surgically altered to go along with the delusion they harbor, can have pride and celebrate something that isn't an actual accomplishment, but a definition of who they are or think they are.

LGBT Pride Month celebrates gay sexual preference around the world.

Users who sign up for the LGBTQ@Facebook page can get to use reacts such as "like", "wow", "angry", "sad", and now they can add an extra rainbow flag-themed "pride" response to posts. 

Canada's "pretty boy" Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, posted on the page. It's readily available in the West, but don't even think about posting it in Russia, Malaysia, Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Qatar, Syria, South Africa, Egypt or Pakistan, not to mention any Islamic-run country I left out.


But even in India and Singapore (where gay sex is illegal), as well as Lithuania and the Philippines (that ban gay marriage) the feature is not available to them.

And they're spitting mad.

Facebook said, in response to user complaints about the feature not being available to them, that "this isn't yet available in some areas, but we hope to roll it out in more soon."

Advocates for free expression online weren't impressed.

Facebook CEO (Cowardly Executive Officer) Mark Zuckerberg effectively promised to ban more things in areas like the Middle East, by making content filters more limiting to achieve "local governance" in line with inhuman, sexist, homophobic, blasphemous and anti-Semitic "cultural norms."

Some say Zuckerberg simply cannot suck enough.



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.


Congressional Dems want $15 Min. wage but pay their interns bupkiss

(Photo: Alex Wong/Getty Images)
Hypocrite: 1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs. 2. a person who feigns desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements. (Dictionary.com)
Democratic members of Congress keep yelling about a fair wage, a fair $15 per hour wage by 2024. But these hypocrites have glaring income inequality issues in their own freaking offices.

Of the almost 190 members of Congress co-sponsoring the $15 minimum-wage legislation, the huge majority of them don't pay their interns a penny for their work. Only 10 of the co-sponsors of the bill offer their interns any wage whatsoever, and this is usually in the form of a stipend.
(Photo: Saul Loeb/AFP?Getty Images)

True, minimum-wage jobs are not the same animal as an internship. In the former, people may be supporting families and have no skills to draw a larger salary. Also, with the former, the person earning minimum wage may be in high school or college and living at home. In this case, a minimum-wage job, say for example, working at McDonalds flipping burgers, isn't intended to do more than teach employment skills while earning some money in the process.

In the latter case, internships aren't permanent and usually aimed at students simply trying to put a few dollars in the bank to perhaps pay for their higher education.

But there's an issue about fairness in both instances.

Carlos Vera, founder of the bipartisan group, Pay Our Interns, said it's hypocritical for the Democrats to push for a $15 minimum wage to expect their own interns to work for bupkiss, zilch, nada, zero.

"I think it's important to practice what you preach and ensure that your values are aligning with your actions," he said.

What Vera is overlooking is that Democrats have few values and then only value what is in their own best interests. 

Votes, baby, votes.

Example: Rep. Keith Ellison tweeted that "Americans deserve nothing less" than $15 an hour. He also said that the increased hourly wage "isn't too much to ask from corporations booking huge profits."

When Ellison's offices was asked whether it's too much to ask Congress to pay interns, the Sharia advocate's office went dark.

In May, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and her hands said that if Democrats took back the House in 2018, "in the first 100 hours we will pass a $15 minimum wage."

Sen. Chuck Schumer said that and his nostrils will "continue fighting tooth and nail" and nostrils, to impose the minimum-wage increase on businesses [who will likely respond by raising prices, lower hiring, or both.]

When the campaigns of these hypocrites were reached out to by Heat Street, about how they reconciled unpaid internships with their demands for a $15-an-hour pay, they too fell into a black hole, not to be heard from again.
(Photo: Scott Eisen/Getty Images)

Sen. Bernie "Wall Schtreet" Sanders is the only Raise the Wage co-sponsor who pays his interns an hourly $12 rate. In spite of his hypocrisy of calling for a $15 minimum-wage, at least he's paying them something around the current minimum-wage. And in spite of paying less taxes than he's calling on others to pay, and owns three homes, he's the only one doing something for the socialists who intern for him.

Sen. Fauxcahontis Warren's website says interns "may be eligible to receive stipends from our office," but only if they're not receiving outside funding or academic credit for the internship.

What a scam.

POTUS calls for barring immigrants from free money for 5 years

(Photo: AP/Susan Walsh)
President Trump rallied in Iowa yesterday and announced that he will be asking Congress to pass legislation that would ban immigrants from coming to the United States and immediately get taxpayer funded assistance within five years of arrival.

"The time has come for new immigration rules that say . . . those seeking immigration into our country must be able to support themselves financially and should not use welfare for a period of at least five years," he told the Grand Rapids crowd.

This might eliminate immigrants who believe they deserve jizya just for coming here and not making trouble.

This proposal is an idea that builds on the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1966. This allows federal authorities to deport immigrants who are on the dole within five years of arrival.

Many of the law's provisions were rolled back when G.W. Bush and Barack Obama were in office. But Trump's plan would make more categories of federal benefits off-limits to immigrants, thus ending the draining of a welfare system by these leeches that was intended for Americans. 

Foreigners with non-immigrant visas and those without legal status, are generally prohibited from those benefits altogether.

The plan would also prevent the admission of those who will likely become "public-charges" within five years of their arrival. This isn't a new concept--it has been a part of immigration law for more than a century and allows the government to bar entry to those who are likely to seek public assistance, which would likely be nearly everyone from Syria, Iraq and many parts of Africa. Trump is likely to bolster those rules regarding "public charge" and ensure they're enforced.

The left will like buck the system because they don't like rules except when it's to their benefit, by which I mean that it brings them more votes, thus more power.

The Trump administration circulated a draft executive order to make the proposed changes earlier this year. Apparently Mr. Trump would like Congress to codify his plan into law ASAP.

The White House will probably cite a 2015 report from the Center for Immigration Studies that found 51 percent of immigrant households are on the public dole in some form, compared to 30 percent among non-immigrant families.

Critics of the report say it doesn't take into account the nuances of immigrant families, such as the fact that they believe the assistance is their right and America is the Big Satan, but it's cool to live here.

Chelsea "upset" with Bannon for "fat shaming' Spicer

Howdy Doody lookalike Chelsea Clinton was upset with Steve Bannon for making fun of Sean Spicer's weight.

Rosie Gray of The Atlantic wrote that Chelsea is upset that Bannon said the reason why White House briefings were currently being held off camera is because "Sean [Spicer] got fatter."

And this was said by a rather corpulent Bannon, so perhaps it was just tongue-in-cheek, unless he doesn't own a mirror.

But really, I suspect Bannon was just breaking Spicer's chops with playful banter and giving us, the American people, a laugh-out-loud moment in a world where laughing is met by hearty "Allahu Akbars" and blood.

So of course, Chelsea Clinton had to get into the act. She couldn't deal with the fact that America couldn't give a rat's keister about her and she just had to step onto Bannon's comedic moment to show us all just how woke she is.


"The White House using fat shaming to justify increased opacity, 2017. --Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton)


The fact that Ms. Doody has to go after two guys busting each other's chops and having fun is sad, but sad in the way that Hillary Clinton is sad for us to watch as she tries to be relevant.


But not sad for me--I'm glad Chelsea's momma is irrelevant.

Hopefully, Sean Spicer will be able to get through the Bannon ridicule and joshing and will not develop bulimia or anorexia. 

But Chelsea continued: 
"Oh ok. So using fat shaming to avoid answering questions about increasing opacity. Got it. 2017."
She's so on point, so brilliant with her remarks and verbal demonstrations. So 1990s.

Chelsea deftly responded to a tweet about how calculated she is:
"Hi Jim! Just me as I was standing in line @Starbucks earlier. Fat shaming isn't a joke I find funny. Ever."
Hillary must've gotten on her case for something she said about her pantsuit look.

Funny how liberals always take the moral superiority route, even when they're killing the unborn.

Flint, MI: jihadi scumwafer in custody

Flint, MI (Land o' Moore) -- A police officer was stabbed in the neck by a guy yelling "Allahu Akbar" at the Bishop International Airport. CNN originally reported the incident too, but only said the Muslim jihadi was yelling something in Arabic. It was only around 9 p.m. Wednesday that they admitted what he yelled.

For those of you born yesterday, "Allahu Akbar" means 'Allah is greater.' Specifically, Allah is greater than your god, as they don't tell you in the media.

A witness told MLive that he saw a man being detained by police and another officer on his knees, bleeding from the neck.

Originally, Bishop International Airport posted on Facebook that the cop was hurt but offered no details about the attack except to say that all passengers were safe and were being told to check for flight delays or cancellations.

The Muslim man, Amor Ftouhi, 50, was taken into custody, according to local media. He is a Canadian resident and lived in Montreal, but has traveled between New York and Canada quite often.

He has been charged with violence at an international airport, according to FBI Special Agent David Gelios.  Ftouhi is accused of stabbing Lt. Jeff Neville. 

A little background: the jihadi in question entered the U.S. legally through Lake Champlain, New York on June 16, then made his way to Flint's Bishop International Airport, arriving on Wednesday.

"He spent a little time in the restroom, dropped both bags and came out, pulled out a knife, yelled 'Allahu Akbar' and stabbed Lt. Neville in the neck," Gelios said.

Just another typical day of Ramadan.

To continue showing his love for Allah, Ftouhi kept yelling "Allah" several times, according to the criminal complaint.

Then he said something to the effect: "you have killed people in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, and we are all going to die."

Yes--everyone, one day, is going to die--get over it.

When Ftouhi was apprehended, the jihadi asked the cop why he didn't kill him, the complaint said.

Thankfully, Neville is in satisfactory condition. Fortunately, the jihadi never did well in biology and wasn't aware of the location of the carotid artery.

More charges may be added to the current ones.

Authorities believe that this was merely a lone moron incident.


Rep. John Lewis dances too soon

John Lewis smiling
Rep. John Lewis was cutting a rug, busting a move, shucking and a jiving for John Ossoff as the first votes poured in Tuesday for Georgia's 6th Congressional District special election.

Lewis is a Democratic congressman from Georgia and has campaigned his Ossoff for their party's candidate. The early voting showed young Ossoff with a small lead over Republican Karen Handel.

Lewis, speaking too soon, told Ossoff supporters at the election watch party: "I tell you, in recent times, I've never seen anything like this. This is not just a campaign, this is a movement."

And a movement it remains, only not for the Democrats, but for the GOP as they won again. Was Trump correct when he said Republicans were going to get tired of winning?

While media outlets like CNN have touted this election as a referendum on Donald Trump, now that Ossoff has lost, they will likely say that the election was not a referendum on Donald Trump.

The special election decided that Karen Handel will replace former Rep. Tom Price, who now is President Trump's Health and Human Services secretary.

As results came in, it was determined around 10:00 p.m. ET that Handel won the election. Ossoff can now go back to his own district and perhaps try a political run there.

And John Lewis now understands the old adage: "Don't count your chickens before they hatch."



Pro-ISIS jihadis storm Philippine school, take hostages

About three hundred pro-ISIS scum wafers stormed a school in the southern Philippines Wednesday and are holding students hostage, according to Reuters.

A gun battle ensued in Pagcawayan town in North Cotabato between the Muslim jihadis and Philippine troops. The attack may be an attempt to draw the military's focus away from Marawi city where they are dealing with the Muslim militants at the present time.

Police Chief Inspector Realan Mamon told the AP that gunmen of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (a group fighting to take away the freedom of worship from everyone not associated with them) raided Malagakit village at dawn Wednesday and engaged government military in a firefight. Villagers ran to safety.

"We can confirm that they occupied a school and there were civilians trapped. We are in the process of determining how many were trapped and their identities," Mamon told Reuters.

Happy Ramadan, campers.

Otto Warmbier dead! Trump has harsh words

President Trump condemned North Korea's horribly "brutal regime" Monday after learning of the death of college student Otto Warmbier. He spent 17 months in a North Korean prison for allegedly taking a communist propaganda poster as he was preparing to return to the US.

Warmbier was released by the hermit nation last week and appeared to be incoherent.

"Lots of bad things happened," Trump said at a meeting with technology CEOs, "but at least we got him home to be with his parents."

He died at University of Cincinnati Medical Center, near where he was raised in suburban Wyoming.

In a typical written statement, sounding as if it were written by someone else, Trump said that "Otto's fate deepens my Administration's determination to prevent such tragedies from befalling innocent people at the hands of regimes that do not respect the rule of law or basic human decency."

Warmbier's family said in a statement that "the awful torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans" meant that "no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today."

Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) said North Korea should be "universally condemned for its abhorrent behavior." He said the family "had to endure more than any family should have to bear."

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) said the North Korean's "despicable actions . . . must be condemned."

I would add: "in the strongest possible terms . . . and let's kill Kim and his generals while we're at it."

Enough with the words of condemnation--let's do something real.


Champs-Elysees vehicle attack: police van destroyed

An attacker drove his car into a police vehicle on Champs-Elysees in Paris Monday afternoon. This prompted a security operation, Paris police said.

The police asked people to avoid the area as the investigation is currently ongoing.

The police vehicle was a van, which caught on fire upon impact. The driver was detained and put in police custody.

Fortunately, there were no injures reported.

Right now we have no indication that this incident was terror-related. Wait.

This just in . . . 






Why Joy Ann Reid and MSNBC suck

(Photo: Fox News)
MSNBC's Joy[less] Ann Reid has no class, no sense of decency and no timing whatsoever. As Rep. Steve Scalise lays in a hospital bed going from critical to serious condition after being shot by a leftist maniac and Bernie Sanders supporter, Reid asked if Scalise's life-threatening injuries meant Americans had to "ignore" his political positions.

What an ass. Really. Giving credence to the political ideology of the shooter is as asinine as it gets.

On Saturday, Reid discussed Scalise's positions on ObamaCare and gay marriage as some of the concerning "moral" issues she felt needed to be discussed as he lay close to death.

Scalise was shot at the GOP baseball practice on June 14th and received critical injuries.

Trying to sound as if she gave a damn about Scalise's condition, Reid said, "There's a whole country out there and a lot of people, at least in my Twitter timeline, and it's a delicate thing, because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we've all been forced to sort of ignore in race."

The race-baiter went on: "He also co-sponsored a bill to amend the Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He co-sponsored the House healthcare bill, which as you said would gut healthcare for millions of people including three million children and he co-sponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semiautomatic weapons. Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside in the moment?"

No moron--you are required, in an ethical sense, to wait for him to recover to the point at which he can debate the garbage that comes out of your mouth.

Leftists have to make the point that conservatives want to see children die and everyone without healthcare. They make the point that in spite of people's religious beliefs, that only they have the moral high ground while they go about the business of killing unborn babies.

Reid doesn't have the courage to go head-to-head with anyone whose head has a functioning brain in it and just because she's black, doesn't give her the excuse to spout her racist horse crap.

Everything is identity politics to the left because their policies suck.

Reid tweeted: "Rep. #Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet...#AMJoy."

She made the effort to identify the police officer's sexual orientation but as a political wonk, she never identified James Hodgkinson's left-leaning orientation.

Convenient and very hypocritical.


Activists say Harlem Globetrotters have too many black men on team

Equality activists are pressuring the Harlem Globetrotters to end their reliance on a team saturated with black men.

Diversity "experts" ordered the team to "open their minds" and enlist more white female lesbian and straight shooters, Chinese, Japanese, Hopi Indian, Jewish, Hindu, Jain, gay white men, straight white men, transgender this and thats, Muslim women, Muslim men, gay Muslim men and women, Apaches, Vietnamese 'little people' (a rarity in basketball) and the blind.

Insofar as their white opponents go, The Washington Generals, they need to be allowed to win half the games and the same diversity measures that need to be applied to the Globetrotters must also be applied to them, according to diversity "experts."

"It's ridiculous that the Globetrotters never lose. I mean like what's the point of coming to a game if you already know who's going to win?" Gladys Finklemeister told Brain Flushings reporter Vinny Boombots. 

"And why is everyone on the Globetrotters black? Can't there be a few white people and people of variegated colors playing for them? It's crazy," she said.

The team's sponsor, Inner Mongolia Mengniu Dairy Industry, a manufacturing and distribution company of dairy products in the People's Republic of China, is the official marketing partner of the Harlem Globetrotters. 

Mengniu claims that it's their concern as to how many tickets are sold to the games the team plays, but it isn't their concern to meet diversity quotas and they anticipate no changes in the team's race or sexual orientation.

But social justice warriors aren't giving up so easily. They plan to march outside Globetrotter events until things change and the Washington Generals win one for a change.

Cops attacked-- kill 1, wound 1, in separate incidents

Police had to shoot a woman and a man who tried to run them down and kill them in separate incidents over the weekend in Northern and Southern California.

The shooting on the San Francisco's Bay Bridge closed down the eastbound lanes for hours early Sunday morning.

A multi-car crash was being investigated by the Highway Patrol when a red Cadillac drove toward officers for reasons only known to the person who wanted to kill cops.

"It came up the right shoulder, and they saw it coming at them," California Highway Patrol Officer Vu Williams said. And with a name like 'Vu', you gotta believe him or her. 

Vu went on: "They gave the driver multiple commands to stop, but the driver kept coming. One of the officers felt threatened for his life and fired."

The driver was struck once and he was taken to the hospital. His condition is unknown but hopefully it hurts like hell.

That vehicle also contained two passengers who were unharmed and they were interviewed by investigators.

The woman who was shot and killed had been drinking and had been arguing with her male friend Saturday in Montebello in Los Angeles County.

Cops responded to a disturbance call at a motel parking lot after the woman hit the man and accused him of taking her purse.

The woman got in her car, drove it out of the parking lot, and returned moments later. She drove at a police officer and her male friend, LA County Sheriff's Deputy Kelvin Moody reported.

Moody said the officer opened fire, striking the woman. She was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The woman was not immediately identified but her anger and stupidity lingers on.




Mali resort hit by jihad attaack

Jihadists in the West African country of Mali attacked a luxury resort on the outskirts of the capital.

An official with MINUSMA, a U.N. mission, spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to talk to the press. He reported that at least two people were killed and others were wounded by the toll is still unknown. 

It is also believed that hostages were taken in Campement de Kangaba resort near Bamako on Sunday.

Nearby residents said they heard shots fired and saw smoke in the air.

"Security forces are in place. Campement Kangaba is blocked off and an operation is under way," said Baba Cisse, a spokesman for Mali's security ministry.

The U.S. State Department warned of "possible future attacks on Western diplomatic missions, other locations in Bamako that Westerners frequent."

Jihadist attacks have been ongoing for several years, with jihadists active in Mali's northern and central regions.

Just another aspect of the Ramadan Boomathon.


UPDATE: London vehicle attack after Ramadan fast

UPDATE: According to Mail Online, it was a van that plowed into a group of pedestrians outside the Finsbury Park Mosque in north London. There are numerous casualties.

The man driving the van allegedly jumped out of the vehicle with a knife and stabbed one of the victims.

It's believed the group of victims was comprised of ten Muslim men who were run over as they broke their Ramadan fast.

Eyewitnesses reported that they saw bystanders wrestle the driver to the ground and held him until officers arrived.

Some witnesses said the driver of the vehicle is a white man.

The vehicle has reportedly been rented from a company in Wales.

A Met Police spokesman said, "Officers are on scene with other emergency services. There are a number of casualties being worked on at the scene.

"There has been one person arrested.

"Enquiries continue."

So it sounds like the incident may have been an anti-Muslim attack, but it is still too soon to know.









DEVELOPING: Vehicle hits pedestrians--1 Arrested and several injured

Developing -- A vehicle struck down several pedestrians on a London street. 

There has been one arrest and it is currently unclear if this was a terrorist attack. 

But it probably was.

People ask "What can we do about it?

Well, I for one, condemn it in the strongest possible terms. That seems to be what our politicians do about it.

Again, we really don't know if this was an Islamic jihad attack--i.e., a religious attack.

When more information comes in, I will report it.



U.S. 'retires' a Syrian bogey

A U.S. fighter plane shot down a Syrian military aircraft Sunday after it foolishly bombed an area near US-backed fighters in Syria, a U.S. military spokesman said.

U.S. Central Command (CentCom) issued a statement saying the aircraft was shot down "in collective self-defense of Coalition-partnered forces."

The U.S. was defending soldiers from the Syrian Democratic Forces near Tabqah.

The Syrian army said earlier that one of its planes was shot down by the US-led coalition during a combat mission against Islamic State militants. And if you believe that, you just might be interested in a bridge I'm selling in Brooklyn.

The U.S. is leading an alliance against the Islamic State, but that jet we shot down wasn't bombing IS.

Now all we need to do is send the same message to North Korea and Iran.


IS claims fatal stabbing of Israeli Policewoman

(Photo by: Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
Jerusalem, Israel -- The Islamic State claimed responsibility for a coordinated shooting and stabbing attack in Israel's capital city that killed an Israeli Border police officer, Hadas Malka, 23, in what the they claimed to be the first of many attacks.

The stabbing occurred on June 16, 2017.

The jihadists made an online statement saying three IS fighters targeted "a gathering of Jews" in an operation Friday. It is common knowledge that the religion of Islam is ardently anti-Semitic which is the impetus for their declaration of the destruction of Israel, the Jewish State.

"With Allah's help, we succeeded in carrying out an attack in the heart of Jerusalem, near the Temple Mount," the group proudly stated.

This was the first time IS claimed responsibility for an Israel terror attack, which is surprising since they like to claim responsibility for anything from boating accidents to wood splinters.

Islamic State butt-buddies have claimed rocket fire into Israel, as well as previous terrorist attacks that have been IS inspired, but this time IS claimed full responsibility.

In its statement , IS claimed the attack was "revenge for the religion of Allah and the sanctities of the violated Muslims."

Well, there they go again claiming victim status as they murder women and children.

"Let the Jews watch for the demise of their state at the hands of the soldiers of the Caliphate," the statement added.

Is there any doubt as to the validity of the sickening level of anti-Semitism the so-called religion of peace espouses?

Three West Bank Palestinians carried out simultaneous attacks with automatic weapons at two adjacent locales. Two attacked a group of police officers at Zedekiah's Cave and the third stabbed the woman officer who died of her wounds at Hadassah Hospital in Mount Scopus.

Israel's internal security agency, Shin Bet, identified the scumcrumpets as Bra'a Salah and Asama Atta, both born in 1998. The other was Adel Ankush, born 1999. All three were shot dead as they carried out their attacks.

All three attackers were from the village of Deir Abu-Mash'al, near Ramallah. They had been previously arrested for, or involvement in "terrorist activity," a Shin Bet statement read.

Israeli security forces surrounded the village preparing to raid the assailant's homes to question their family members about the attack.

In the wake of  the attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revoked the entry permits given to Palestinians during the Ramadan Boomathon holy cow month, where some Palestinians enter Israel to visit family and some plan attacks.

Israel had eased restrictions on allowing Palestinians entry into the country from the West Bank for Ramadan, including permitting daily family visits during Sundays through Thursdays.

But based on the resulting attacks, Netanyahu canceled the visits at the recommendation of Police Chief Roni Alsheich and Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan. The PM did not, however, revoke permission given to Palestinian men over 40-years of age because they don't tend to kill Israelis.

Israel has historically relaxed restrictions on the movement of Palestinians during Ramadan, including easier access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, where Muslims come to pray and long for the death of the Jews.

How horribly sad.
