Your Ironic Irony of the Day

Via Campus Reform

A Marxist student group at Swarthmore College disbanded itself earlier this year after realizing that its members were too rich and too white to be real commies.

According to screenshots confidentially provided to Campus Reform by an individual with access to the group’s private Facebook page, the demise of the Swarthmore Anti-Capitalist Collective (SACC) came in the wake of a farewell letter from a member who had decided the group could never be an effective proponent of “unproblematized anticapitalist politics” due to its “history of abuse, racism, and even classism.”

Unproblematized anticapitalist politics? What the hell does that even mean? Just think how much good these Marxists could do if they stopped making up words to define their foolish beliefs and started reading about our founders.

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Armed citizen 1, abusive boyfriend 0

An armed security guard was in the right place at the right time last Thursday, selflessly saving his neighbor from a brutal attack.

Police were called to an apartment complex near the Meadows Mall on Mission Laguna Lane around 10 p.m. by the security guard who reported the shooting.

Las Vegas Now reports:

Investigators believe the dead man had been abusing his girlfriend for hours before the shooting.  They said the victim had obvious signs of abuse and was bleeding from her face.  They also believe the man had kicked down a door inside the couple’s apartment earlier Thursday.

Before the shooting, police believe the woman ran from her apartment and found a neighbor she knew in the parking lot. The woman’s long-time boyfriend apparently chased her and got into an argument with the neighbor.

“There was a verbal argument and there was some yelling,” said Metro homicide investigator, Lt. Dan McGrath.  “What I was told by the security guard was he told him to back up.  He told him to get back or he would get shot.”

Police said that during that confrontation, the neighbor fired one shot, hitting and killing the boyfriend.

Police did not release the identities of the persons involved in the incident, only specifying that the domestic abuse suspect was an African-American man in his 50’s who had a history of domestic violence with his girlfriend.

Jenn Jacques has the story

According to Chief Greg Jordan, a motel landlord was able to use his firearm to successfully stop a knife-wielding man advancing on him Saturday night.

The incident occurred at the Driftwood Motel in Oak Island, NC., a quiet beach town

“It’s so quiet and a family-friendly and a low-key place where you don’t expect any action or crime,” said beachgoer Elizabeth Finley, who heard the pair of gunshots.

Authorities say at approximately 11:15 p.m., 36-year-old Michael Christopher Auvil, who used to live at the motel, pulled a knife on the landlord during a verbal argument. Witnesses told police that as Auvil continued to advance, the landlord acted in self-defense; drawing his firearm, taking aim, and shooting his armed attacker.

Auvil was pronounced dead at the scene.

Man Charged With Impregnating 11-Year-Old Claims She May Have Raped Him – Law Newz

A Massachusetts man accused of raping a child by force and impregnating her had a surprising defense. Justin J. Armstrong, 38, claimed he didn’t commit the abuse, according to local newspaper The Republican – Instead, he claims she may have raped him in his sleep.

Prosecutors claim that the 11-year-old girl told them Armstrong sexually abused her for approximately 18 months. He allegedly told her he’d be arrested if she came out with the truth, but she eventually told one of her mother’s friends.

Armstrong, who was arrested Friday, denied the allegations. He told cops that according to the victim, a relative sexually abused her. As Assistant District Attorney Jill O’Connor laid it out in court Monday, he eventually learned the victim was pregnant, and suggested she raped him in his sleep.

The victim had an abortion, but the pregnancy will still play a role in this case. O’Connor said they’re still waiting for the results of a DNA test on the fetal tissue…

Mizzou Has Officially Fired Both Employees Who Bullied Students During Mob Protests – Daily Caller

Officials at the University of Missouri’s flagship campus in Columbia have finally rid themselves of the administrator and the professor who physically and verbally attacked student journalists during the eruption of Black Lives Matter protests that rocked the school’s campus in November 2015.

The firing of both taxpayer-funded employees – mass communication professor Melissa Click and senior associate director for Greek life Janna Basler – took 20 months. Basler, the Greek life director, shoved up against a lone student photographer Tim Tai as he attempted to capture images for a local newspaper.

GOP Health Care Bill Clears First Huge Hurdle In Senate – Business Insider

The Senate narrowly voted on Tuesday to open debate on the Republican effort to overhaul healthcare, kicking off a furious voting process after tumultuous arguments within the GOP.

A procedural vote to begin debate on the House’s healthcare bill passed, 51-50, as Vice President Mike Pence cast the tiebreaking vote. It came amid the dramatic return of Sen. John McCain, who cast a crucial vote in favor of the legislation, a week after announcing he had brain cancer.

Even with this step, it is unclear whether Republicans will have the votes to eventually repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the healthcare law known as Obamacare.

Every Democrat voted against the motion on Tuesday, as well as Republican Sens. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. GOP leadership could not have afforded another defection.

Several Republican members who were on the fence about the motion voted for the measure after significant pressure from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the White House. Sen. Ron Johnson came to the floor and talked privately with McConnell before finally casting a “yes” vote…

Al Gore Can’t Save The Global Warming Cult – Bruce Thornton

Following Donald Trump’s withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord, Al Gore is releasing an update of his 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth. It’s called An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, in which no doubt we will hear the same apocalyptic hysteria of its predecessor, and the same lurid predictions that will never come true. The difference between the 2006 Academy Award winner and the updated version is that now volumes of counter-evidence and exposure of the manipulation of climate data make it obvious that catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is a progressive cult-belief and alternative energy boondoggle, not real science.

Earlier this month PJMedia covered a new report that seriously challenges the data all warmists rely on to buttress their case that the planet has been steadily warming to disastrous levels. This peer-reviewed paper examines how the raw data from weather stations are manipulated and altered by the three main purveyors of temperature data known as Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) – The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, NASA, and the Hadley Center for Climate Prediction and Research – before being used by other researchers…

Study: 8,471 Cases Of Double Voting Uncovered In 21 States – Breitbart

As the debate over President Donald Trump’s voter fraud commission intensifies, a new study has found 8,471 instances of double voting during the 2016 elections occurring in 21 states.

The nonpartisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI), which was cofounded by Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer and former Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, analyzed data from 21 U.S. states and found that 7,271 ballots were cast in more than one state by individuals with the identical first and last name, middle initial, birthdate, and partial Social Security number.

Another 1,200 double votes meeting the same criteria were detected within the same state. Given the high methodological bar employed, GAI says the statistical “probability of correctly matching two records with the same name, birthdate, and Social Security number is close to 100 percent.”

The 37-page study is unique in that while most past voter fraud analyses have used statistical models to project fraud rates, the GAI report identified actual matches of real votes cast using public voter information rolls…

8 Illegals Found Dead In Tractor Trailer At San Antonio Walmart, 30 Others In Bad Shape – MYSA

The driver of a tractor-trailer that was found in a Walmart parking lot with eight dead immigrants and 30 others in bad shape is in federal custody, officials said Sunday.

James M. Bradley Jr., 60, is believed to be from Florida. He was booked into a federal jail in San Antonio on human trafficking charges for his alleged role in what U.S. Attorney Richard Durbin called “an alien smuggling venture gone horribly wrong.”

“We’re working on a complaint right now,” Durbin said. “He’s in custody and he will be charged.”

The truck was parked at a back corner of the Walmart parking lot at 8538 S. Interstate 35 and Texas 16 on the Southwest Side at least since Saturday night. The eight immigrants are believed to have died as a result of heat exposure/asphyxiation, according to a San Antonio Police Department news release, but an official cause of death will be determined by the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office.

At Least 90 Hospitalized, 50 Charged With Underage Drinking At Hartford ‘Hot Jam’ Concert – Hartford Courant

At least 90 people were hospitalized and another 50 were charged with underage drinking during the Hot 93.7 Hot Jam concert at Xfinity Theatre on Friday night, police and fire officials said.

The number of people taken to the hospital on Friday night far exceeds what is typical for a concert in the city, Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley said.

“A ‘typical’ concert is around 20-30 transports. 60 would be very bad. We had 70 once and 90 last night,” Foley said. “It depends on the act that is in town and the fan base age.”

Hartford Fire Capt. Raul Ortiz said the “constant cycling of transports” overwhelmed the department.

Hartford’s ambulance provider had to call in additional resources and some patients had to be taken to hospitals in Farmington, Manchester and New Britain, Ortiz said.

Whistleblower: Obama Labor Officials Denied Or Delayed Pay-Outs To Nuclear Workers In Hopes They Would Die – Washington Free Beacon

A senior attorney at the Labor Department is accusing agency officials of writing and manipulating regulations to intentionally delay and deny congressionally mandated compensation to nuclear-weapons workers who suffered from sicknesses – and in some cases died – as a result of their work building the nation’s Cold War nuclear arsenal.

The attorney, Stephen Silbiger, says Labor Department leadership under former Labor Secretary Tom Perez ignored years of his complaints about the “open hostility” he said some officials exhibited toward claimants, many of whom are too poor and sick to fight the agency’s denials and red tape in federal court.

When Congress passed the law creating the compensation program in 2000, a bipartisan group of lawmakers promised these nuclear workers a claimant-friendly path to compensating them or their families for illnesses related to the country’s nuclear build-up and their exposure to toxins at bomb-making facilities…

How Would You Rate Trump’s Performance After Six Months?

Every week on Monday, the WoW! community and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s Question:How Would You Rate Trump’s Performance After Six Months?

Don Surber: My 401-k — fully invested in Bogle’s S&P 500 stock index fund — is up 15% since Election Day.

860 regulations are gone.

14 Congressional Review Act resolutions have wiped out other regulations.

Factories are hiring, mines too. And coal miners make $75,000 a year in a state where $100,000 still buys a nice three-bedroom ranch.

Patriot missiles are in Poland.

The Islamic State is out of Iraq — and Syria.

President Trump made the first direct flight from Riyadh to Israel. The BDS movement is on the wan.
NATO nations are living up to their military commitments. The LNG and oil we will sell to Europe could collapse the Russian economy and end Putin’s political career.

Self-deportations are up. ICE is doing its job. Wages are creeping up.

Food stamps are falling, as is the corruption that goes with it. Schools no longer have to serve Michelle Obama Meals that kids dumped in the trash.

The pace however is slow. The judicial appointments need to be speeded up. All the appointments do. And of course, he blew it by allowing a special prosecutor to go fishing for a crime.

The media wastes its time and credibility on Russia. I love it.

Six months in, I am glad I voted for Trump twice last year (in the primary and the general election) and look forward to doing the same in 2020.

He easily gets an A for his efforts and his accomplishments. There is more to do, of course. And there is a lot of bluster. But grownups look upon the media madness with amusement. When you are draining a swamp, expect a big stench and loud roars from dying critters.

Mike McDaniel: Consider Donald J. Trump’s accomplishments: He is not Hillary Clinton. One cannot say that too often: he is not Hillary Clinton. Despite what the Media would have us believe, he is not providing Obamite “flexibility” for Vladimir Putin. He is reversing much of the damage Barack Obama did. He is reversing Obama’s betrayal of Poland by providing missile defense systems to the Poles. He has greatly increased American exports of energy, particularly natural gas, which is absolutely to the detriment of Russia.

He is reversing unnecessary, punitive and costly regulations across the board. He is, slowly but steadily, dismantling the administrative state. He is reversing innumerable Obama executive orders including vast western land grabs.

Neal Gorsuch.

Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord; that was worth it just to see the greenie’s heads explode, as they continue to explode today. He approved the Keystone XK and Dakota Access pipelines.

Economic confidence and optimism is soaring and the number of actual, not paper, jobs created in only six months is nearing a million.

You’d never know it by listening to the Media, but he’s signed more than 40 bills that are actually worthwhile. He’s rebuilding our military.

Illegal immigration, despite constant media lies and Leftist lawfare, has declined in numbers the head of the Border Patrol calls “miraculous.” This not because he has been able to revamp the law, but merely because he is enforcing the law, and everyone, including Mexico, know he’s serious.

Donald Trump can actually speak the words “radical Islamic terrorism,” and has often done so. Not only that, he understands our enemies, and is treating them as enemies. He also is repairing the damage Barack Obama did to our allies, including NATO.

James Mattis.

In just six months, President Trump’s accomplishments outstrip those of many president’s entire terms. This despite impediments that would bring others to a complete halt.

Mr. Trump’s ultimate problem is he is an actual leader, not a beltway leader. Witness the Media, the self-imagined elite of the Beltway, politicians and academics as they scream in anguish “Trump isn’t normal!” He’s not doing it right! He’s not doing it the way it should be done, the way they’re used to, their way!

Theirs is the leadership of messaging, the narrative, of the correct, soaring, sophisticated rhetoric, of good and exalted intentions, of the moral–progressive–high ground. It’s the leadership of pay to play, of enriching oneself and one’s friends, and destroying one’s political enemies. It’s the leadership of double crossing the nation’s allies–especially those nasty Jews–and embracing and enriching America’s enemies. It’s the leadership of taking one’s time, doing one thing at a time, and patting oneself on the back for one’s great intellect and morality.

Donald Trump was elected because he’s the opposite of all that. He’s the kind of leader that uses every minute of the day and wishes he had more. His focus is getting the job done, and he juggles multiple tasks at the same time while expecting everyone that works for him to do the same. He says he’ll do it, and he does it, and expects it done yesterday. He’s used to working in the real world, with real people. When he says “the people,” he thinks of individuals, actual people he knows, not some abstract body of slaves laboring for his noble goals.

READ  President Trump And Why Morning Joe is ‘Morning Joke’

Trump deals with the world as it is. He doesn’t try to make the world conform to what he thinks it should be. This, alone, is an enormous accomplishment, one many presidents never truly master.

All of this makes the Media, and the Never Trump Republicans absolutely crazy. They can’t understand it, but they know it is absolutely foreign, just as normal Americans find it comforting, because it’s their reality. That’s why they hate him–and us–so much.

If Congressional Republicans ever find a backbone and use the power the Constitution gives them to set the rules of the Congress so they can ignore the Democrats, Mr. Trump will actually be able to repeal and replace Obamacare, truly reform our tax system, reduce the IRS in size and power to what it ought to be, and make our immigration system work to benefit America and Americans.

If he can do that in four years, he’ll be one of our most consequential and accomplished presidents.

To be sure, he’s made errors—Jeff Sessions—but by any honest measure, his accomplishments are many, and in many cases, historic.

Rob Miller: I think President Trump’s first six months have been amazing. He’s been faced with what is an organized and well funded attempt to delegitimize his presidency and obstruct him at every turn unlike any in our history, one that includes members of his own party.The fact that he’s accomplished as much as he has in view of this is absolutely jaw dropping.

I’ve written before that what President Trump is doing is an attempt to reverse a quarter century of American decline under three of the worst presidents in our history.  It isn’t going to be easy, and he’s made a few beginner’s errors along the way, but his record speaks for itself.

He has totally remade American foreign policy from the abyss it was in, refreshing alliances with traditional allies estranged by Obama and reassuring the world that  ‘leadership from behind’ is a thing of the past. He also has defied Russia by selling anti-missile systems to the Visograd alliance,  is shipping them natural gas to nullify Russia’s energy blackmail, and has revitalized NATO by insisting that the member nations fulfill their commitments of defense spending, although some of them like Germany persist in refusing to do so.

He has cut illegal migration substantially, even with congress shirking it’s responsibility to fund the border wall we need for national security. He also has revitalized the efficiency and leadership of ICE and our Border Patrol.

He has made substantial progress in repairing the swamp known as the VA, fulfilling another of his campaign promises.

He has appointed a stellar cabinet, including, yes, Jeff Sessions…who I can’t demonize for what amounts to a beginner’s mistake in judgement.

He is defeating ISIS, has finally stopped U.S. funding by the CIA of the al-Qaeda affiliates characterized by Obama and his minions as ‘moderate Syrian rebels’ and is showing unusual resolution and decisiveness as our Commander in chief. Even WAPO shill David Ignatius had to admit that much. or to quote one of SecDef Mattis’s bon mots when pestered by an obnoxious reporter as to the status of the fight against ISIS, simply looked at him sideways and said just four words “We’re winning, they’re losing.”

He has substantially cut stifling federal regulations, far surpassing his original 2 for 1 goal. And the economy? Estimates are that during the first six months of his presidency, the national wealth has increased by over $4 trillion. Admittedly, a lot of this is stock market gains and as I consider the Market overvalued, this could be subject to change. But it is still an undeniable fact, as is the increse of manufacturing and energy related jobs.

Then there’s the Keystone pipeline, the dramatic decline of unemployment claims and food stamp users. getting out of the economy killing Paris Accord, and a number of other accomplishments.

The two things that give the Trump administration the impression of ‘accomplishing nothing’ are simply not something you can blame him for…by which I mean repealing ObamaCare and tax reform. Those missteps are entirely the fault of weak Republican leadership in congress. The House produced a decent replacement bill that would have resulted in an $800 billion tax cut for Americans pauperized by ObamaCare’s demands. It wasn’t perfect, but it was far better than the nonsense the senate finally came up with after engaging in outright bribery redolent of the sordid smell attending ObamaCare’s introduction. Fun fact, not reported by the media...the three female senators from Alaska, West Virginia and Maine who opposed repealing ObamaCare have something in common besides gender. All of them come from predominantly rural states with a huge problem with opiate addiction, something these states have fought by expanding MedicAid to put the cost back on the Feds. There are other members of Congress in love with all those luscious tax dollars ObamaCare provides, just as some of them combat the president’s attempt to curtail our problem with illegal migration because their donors love the continued flow of cheap labor, Illegal migration is something that directly contributes to the high cost of health care in America as well as other problems.

READ  Trump’s Winning His War on Washington

President Trump is going to have to find some way of dealing with this element of his own party, and the solution may very well be to form a new one out of the ashes of the GOP. There are definitely Democrats like Joe Manchin, Heidi Hightkamp and the handful of members of the Blue Dog caucus who might cheerfully join a new party like that.

Dave Schuler : Incomplete. There have been no substantial legislative accomplishments during the first six months of his term. The attacks by the media have been so continuous, determined, and mean-spirited at one level it’s been amazing that he’s done anything other than push back.

Despite it all the country hasn’t actually collapsed yet, there are few signs of imminent impeachment, he may accomplish something yet, and amazing as it seems the mood of the country has actually improved so I, in a spirit of generosity, give him an Incomplete.

Laura Rambeau Lee : In spite of the constant negative reporting and Russia obsession from the main stream media, President Trump’s performance has been a positive and welcome change from the past administration. He has signed more than forty bills and almost that many executive orders dealing with many issues. It is reported that he has saved businesses nearly $18 billion a year by reining in oppressive regulations and bureaucratic red tape. He approved the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, rolled back the Clean Power Plan, and horrified the progressive left by withdrawing from the Paris climate accord.

On the foreign policy front he has succeeded in reasserting America’s position as a global leader. His meeting with the nations of the Muslim world in Saudi Arabia, his speech in Poland, and the G20 meetings show he understands and will protect our interests and support our allies in the future. His nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court assures we will have a more conservative leaning court for decades to come.

In short, President Trump is making good on his promises to the American voters who supported and voted for him. The Republican Party must get behind him and the people who elected him or the party might just collapse. Many of us are losing patience with the health care repeal and/or replace debacle and are losing faith in the party. The American voters will have to do their part to drain the swamp by voting out the entrenched career politicians in Congress and those who promised they would repeal Obamacare.

I just hope President Trump can continue to do the job we elected him to do; his new Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci can uncover and eliminate the leaks coming out of the White House; and the witch hunt being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is quickly wrapped up. We are six months into the administration. It’s time the Democrats get over their disappointment with the results of the election and accept that President Trump is and will be president for at least the next four years. It’s time for them to buck up and do their jobs and stop being obstructionists to everything this administration has been charged by the American voters to do.

Well, there it is!

Why do animal rights nuts hate rhinos?

Watch this video and take note. Apparently capitalism and free markets are more deplorable to the Left than rhinos going extinct is. 

It seems the woman in the video cares more about saving rhinos from being seen as a “commodity” than about actually taking steps to save the species. She talks of ad campaigns, and anti poaching messaging. But that ignores the reality of why poachers are targeting rhinos. The massive amount of money they can make doing it!  As stated in the video, when owning rhinos was made legal, the rhino population quadrupled. But, again, it is more important to the Leftist in this video that we do not perceive rhinos as a commodity.

So, in short, saving a spectacular species of animals, like rhinos, is not the first interest of the “animal rights” crowd. As I have said repeatedly, Leftism destroys everything it touches. In large part, this is because Leftism, as an ideology ignores reality and truth, preferring to try to force everything to fit into leftist ideology. The results are always the same, good things are destroyed. No cost is too high to prove Leftism works apparently. Tragically, the magnificent rhino is just another example of how cruel leftist “compassion” really is.

As I keep saying, it is impossible to parody the Left

Case in point!

In related news, genitals no longer matter

Certain body parts don’t define male or female gender, according to Planned Parenthood’s updated guidelines on how parents should talk to their kids about sexuality.

While the old Planned Parenthood recommendations rely on science to talk to preschoolers about sexuality, the new guidelines reject former advice and expound upon gender details far beyond any normal preschooler’s comprehension.

The old guidelines advised parents to tell their kids that:

  • Women have breasts. Men don’t.

  • Boys have penises and girls have vulvas. I’m a woman — a girl who is all grown up — so I have a vulva instead of a penis. And you’re a boy, so you have a penis instead of a vulva.

The new guidelines advise parents to say:

  • Those are nipples. Everybody has nipples.

  • Boy, girl, man, and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities “boy” or “man” have vulvas, and some with the gender identity “girl” or “woman” have penises/testicles.

  • Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.

  • It doesn’t matter too much what parts someone has

Well, I wonder if cats nipples matter? Hmmm

So, nipples are unimportant. So, if a cat identifies as a person, and hey, do not tell me a cat, which is as much a person as a person because genitals no longer matter……………

FINALLY! Liberal tries to sell us on being PC, fails miserably

The Gay Patriot examines a piece by a naive Millennial who tries to lecture people on the virtues of political correctness self-censorship. Then proceeds to take Mr. Inclusive to the intellectual woodshed

In an article dripping with condescension, a precious Millennial Snowflake writing for Inc. Magazine is given the space to lecture the bigoted “older generation” on why Millennials — being smarter, more worldly, and more woke than their dottering elders — embrace political correctness.

The purpose of political correctness is to treat all people with the love and respect they deserve. This means calling people by the pronouns they use, and avoiding words and phrases that stereotype and demonize entire groups of people. You can still possess whatever ideology you follow and you can still share your opinion, you’re just being asked to do so in a way that is not hurtful to others.

Go read the whole thing, it is a priceless example of a thinker taking apart the blatherings of an emoter. Here is a sample

Millennial Snowflake: “We’re not censoring your speech, we’re just politely requesting that you use sensitive language.”

Me: “So, I’m still allowed to express any opinion I want as long as I use the PC words.”

MS: “Exactly, now you’re getting it, old man.”

Me: “Can I say that I think mass immigation from underdeveloped countries is bad for our economy and social cohesion.”

MS: “Oh, no. That’s problematic because it’s insensitive and demonizes immigrants.”

 

Bill Belichick wears patriotic T-shirt, Leftist butt hurt ensues

The work of race-baiting parasites is never done I guess

How dare Bill Belichick celebrate the death of terrorists? Of course, Tariq Nasheed can use this to claim RAAAAACISM! So he is OK with it, selling false victim status is just how he rolls. He race baits, and, $$$$ follows, just like his buddy DeRay, and his blue vests! Coded messages, dog whistles, institutional racism, White privilege, blah, blah, blah.

Heat Street has some very racist things Tariq has spewed in his work as an anti-racism strategist. I would add misogynist to these words of, well, something

In one great part of the episode Nasheed describes how the SARS and bird flu epidemics made Asian women less valuable.

“So Asian girls kind of dropped down a notch, and I’m saying this because I used to love me some Asian broads around 2001-2002. Those were my main team players, but I had to start cutting them off the team.”

“Asian girls are still salvageable, you can salvage them.”

“Asian females like I said were hot for a minute, but then all of a sudden the damn bird flu started coming into play and chicken fever, all types of shit, SARS, they started getting all types of shit coming from these Asian broads. So that kind of threw everybody off from Asian girls for a minute, all these little strange Asian diseases started popping up. Because right after that happened, everybody started focusing on the Latina girls.

“For awhile Asian girls were the shit, but a nigga didn’t want to get feathers on his dick from the bird flu or whatever was popping off.”

“I’m not saying that every Filipino girl is a drug user, but a lot of them are. A lot of girls from those poorer countries are major drug users. But damn near all of them, especially the attractive ones, are attention whores.”

From Episode #6: Mackin’ on Latina Females

“Now with Puerto Rican females, you gotta step to them with confidence, and you gotta get them young. Not underage, don’t get your ass on MSNBCDateline as a pedophile, but you gotta get them at 18, 19. You gotta get them out of their community.”

“You gotta get them young, fresh off the boat.”

“A lot of Puerto Rican bitches will hit the wall at 30. By the time they get to 30 years old, they look a hot mess. I don’t know what it is in the Puerto Rican water, or the Chupacabra monster got them, but they hit the wall.”

“A lot of girls here from Brazil, Columbia, they be on some gangsta shit. Bitches be drug mules or high class call girls. You kind of have to have your foot in the game to deal with women like that, cause if a Brazilian broad has gotten out of her country, that bitch got some hustling under her belt. And she did something to get out of her country. She done sold some dope, she done sold some pussy, she done sold something to get up out of that country.”

“Brazilian girls and a lot of women from South America have bad breath. I know that sounds kinda weird, but whenever I meet a girl from South America, all them bitches breath smells funny.”

Smell the tolerance and anti-racism folks. And oh yes, he is anti-cop

 

Classy! He just spews, and tries to talk over Carlson, which shows he is simply an empty suit who has found a way to make money. He is all about creating anger and division. What a leech!

Should it matter that Trump’s new communications director is a member of the Cult of Gun Control?

Perhaps it may have no bearing on his job or how he does it, but, still, I would prefer  someone who respects natural rights. I am funny that way I guess. The Right Scoop has more, including some tweets that uh, well, are detestable

scaramucci-gun-ontrol-

Good Freaking Grief! Am I to believe that Trump could not find someone who has a core belief in the most basic human right, that of self defense? But it is OK now, because the tweets were deleted? Sleazebag! Sorry but I would not hire this guy to take out my garbage!

Oh no! ICE to start targeting teenage gang members!

Some of the most violent gangs are made up of illegals, Google MS-13 for examples. So, ICE should heavily target those illegals in such gangs, along with any illegal that commits violent crimes should they not? Pirates Cove notes that to Liberals, this is just not fair or something

Remember the days when we were told by the pro-illegal alien crowd that they had no problem getting rid of the Bad Illegals Undocumenteds? In practice, they aren’t happy over targeting those bad ones

(Reuters) U.S. immigration agents are planning nationwide raids next week to arrest, among others, teenagers who entered the country without guardians and are suspected gang members, in a widening of President Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigrants.

The raids are set to begin on Sunday and continue through Wednesday, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters. The teenagers targeted will be 16- and 17-years-old.

So, gang members. People who engage in criminal activity. Violence. Rape. Murder. Drug dealing. Terrorizing areas. Fights. Destruction of property. One would thing this would be a good thing. Uh huh. Not in Liberal World

The raids represent a sharp departure from practices during the presidency of Barack Obama. Under Obama, minors could be targeted for deportation if they had been convicted of crimes, but were not arrested simply for suspected gang activity or membership.

Well, like most of Obama’s “brilliant” policies, this one reeks of stupidity, and it should be abandoned. Once again, blaming crime on anything but criminals is the height of foolishness and leads to more crime, more victims. Funny, the left is quick to bash the NRA, gun owners, and police “brutality”, which is usually police enforcing the law. But blaming and punishing criminals for their crimes? Oh no!

Yet another reason to hate Statism

Oh New York and their central planning numbskulls, and the idiot New Yorkers who keep voting for them

Wherever there is a need, the free market steps in to fill it — except in New York, where senselessly micromanaging authoritarians won’t even allow pet-sitting:

Health Department rules ban anyone from taking money to care for an animal outside a licensed kennel — and the department has warned a popular pet-sitting app that its users are breaking the law. …

[Chad] Bacon, a former zookeeper and wildlife researcher, signed up for the app to help make ends meet while he was between jobs, but did enough business that he now makes his living from it full-time.

Congrats, bureaucrats. You’ve thrown him out of work. With luck, maybe you can get him on the welfare roll.

The health code bans boarding, feeding and grooming animals for a fee without a kennel license — and says those licenses can’t be issued for private homes. … Fines start at $1,000.

All a sane person can do is shake their heads at such foolishness. What business is it of the government to decide who can, or cannot watch your pet, keep your pet, or feed your pet?

Then there is Canada, Oh Canada!

A City of Toronto work crew was seen in Etobicoke’s Tom Riley Park early Friday morning, removing a staircase that had been erected by maverick local handyman Adi Astl. Construction on new stairs, Mayor John Tory promises, will begin immediately.

Astl, a retired mechanic, says he built the stairs for a mere $550 after several neighbours tumbled down a muddy slope leading to the park’s garden. The work, which only took a few hours, came after the community was told to wait for a $65,000 to $150,000 solution from the city.

“The new stairs will be safe, durable and reasonably priced,” Tory wrote.

The City estimates that the new stairs will cost $10,000. In an interview with CTV News Channel from Toronto City Hall, Tory vowed to make sure that cost estimates are more reasonable in the future.

Well, $10,000 is better than $65-150,000 but still, $10,000???
