Dissent is about to be patriotic again

Throughout Barack Obama Hussein’s presidency his leftist supporters have been telling everyone that criticism of the thug regime is racist.

Well now, with a new administration coming, criticism of the new Chief Executive is going to A-OK again.

Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas, who hasn’t been playing with a full deck for years, is promising to open up a whole can of crazy lefty whoop-# against soon-to-be President Donald Trump.

Harrisburg Abortion Law Challenged by Sidewalk Counselors

HARRISBURG, PA - Liberty Counsel filed the opening brief in the lawsuit against the city of Harrisburg because its ordinance created unconstitutional buffer zones on public sidewalks and public property 20 feet away from abortion clinic entrances, exits, and driveways. In practice, this ordinance pushes sidewalk counselors sometimes 50 to more than 70 feet away and completely prohibits freedom of speech. The U.S. Supreme Court recently overturned similar buffer zones in McCullen v. Coakley, the unanimous decision which establishes a strong precedent in favor of this lawsuit.

Democrats fail to learn lesson - Pelosi retains leadership position

Good news everyone, the Democrats have learned nothing from their 2016 loss. With a vote of 134 to 63, Dems have kept Nancy Pelosi in her leadership position.  This sends a strong signal that they intend to spend the next four years calling everyone racist, sexist, homophobic bigots who hate everyone and everything that isn’t white.  In short, they’re going to be doubling down on everything that cost them the last election.

Trump says he will leave his entire business enterprise ‘in total’

Politically this is probably a smart move, and in the short term it might make him a better president. There are precedents it sets that I’m not sure I like, but we’ll get to that. Here are the basics:

President-elect Donald J. Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that he would soon leave his “great business in total” to focus on the presidency, a response to growing worries over the businessman-in-chief’s conflicts of interest around the globe.

Culinary Tips from a White House CHIEF Correspondent

So CNN’s “enterprising” Senior White House Correspondent. Jim Acosta is being accredited for “busting” last night’s restaurant meeting starring Donald Trump, Mitt Romney and Reince Priebus in the Big Apple.

OOH-EEE!!!

“The location was a secret, but CNN reporter Jim Acosta happened to be dining at Jean Georges in New York City when the trio walked in. The enterprising Acosta pulled out his phone and promptly began to live tweet the details of the meeting that he could see in a furious string of tweets.” (The Blaze, Nov. 29, 2016)

Uh oh: Trump wants flag burners jailed, stripped of citizenship

It’s a bad idea. It’s also an unconstitutional idea. Finally, it’s an impossible idea. Maybe that’s why Trump tweeted it. Given his cabinet choices and his early policy priorities, Trump is shaping up like a guy who governs as a fairly mainstream conservative but thunders rhetorically like the populist who proved everyone wrong and won the presidency.

No, you can’t jail flag-burners. But if you’d like to tweet that you wish you could, you’re welcome to that:

ISIS claims responsibility for OSU attack

Bombthrowers

The Muslim terrorist group Islamic State has claimed responsibility for U.S. green card holder Abdul Razak Ali Artan’s brutal car-and-machete attack at Ohio State University.

On Monday morning 18-year-old Artan drove his car through a crowd of pedestrians at OSU’s Columbus campus. He exited the vehicle and then began hacking away at people with his knife. A police officer at the scene shot and killed him. Media reports indicated 12 people were injured in the attack but none suffered life-threatening injuries. Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs promptly said “I think we have to consider that it is” a terrorist attack.

Tribute to Jews from Arab Lands: Part 2, Libya

As part of B’nai Brith Canada’s week-long series to commemorate the nearly 1-million Jews who fled their homes across Arab countries and Iran, we spoke to Noemi Lieberman, originally from Tripoli, Libya.

In 1947, wearing only the clothes on their backs, she and her family were forced to flee Libya, leaving all their possessions behind. To this day, neither she nor any of her family members have been given reparations of any kind.

Libya’s once-thriving Jewish community, which dates back to the third century BCE, once boasted a community of some 60,000 Jews. In 1939, Italy’s fascist regime under Benito Mussolini began to pass antisemitic laws in Libya. Jews were fired from their jobs, dismissed from government schools, and had their passports marked with the words “Jewish race.” In 1942, over 2,000 Jews were deported and sent to work in labour camps. More than one-fifth of them were murdered.

Dakota Pipeline: Obama Administration Violates Rule of Law

The Dakota Access Pipeline is a 1,172 mile pipeline that, once completed, will transport oil from the Bakken oil field in North Dakota to Illinois, crossing 4 states. The pipeline company, Energy Transfer Partners, spent over two years obtaining the required approvals and permits for its construction. This summer, after the pipeline was about half complete, the Standing Rock Sioux protested the pipeline, bringing the issue to court because the tribe claimed there could be possible contamination of drinking water and disruption to culturally important sites that are not on the reservation.

Donald Trump’s Election as President: Israel’s Additional Focus

The election of Donald Trump as President of the United States has prompted many in Israel to issue recommendations to the President-elect and the administration-in-formation regarding policy on Israel. One of the repeated objectives is to repair the relations between the two countries and bring them closer to each other, particularly on the Palestinian issue, the nuclear agreement with Iran, the crisis in Syria, the stabilization of Egypt, and military aid. Indeed, Trump’s election may well prove to be a strategic opportunity for Israel to improve its relations with the US and expand coordination with it on all matters pertaining to Israel’s essential strategic interests. At the same time, it would be wise for Israel to proceed cautiously to ensure that while it makes the most of this opportunity, its essential interests in important areas directly affected by Trump’s election victory – including the Palestinian arena, the American political arena, and the Israeli internal arena – are not damaged as a result.

Romney: ‘Trump is the very man who can lead us’ to a ‘better future’

Before the election, Mitt Romney was probably Donald Trump’s most brutally vocal critic.  His infamous speech, in which the former presidential candidate railed against Trump’s alleged fraud and incompetence, was basically one long litany of insults designed to derail the Trump train.  Like Romney’s two presidential bids, it failed to have much of an impact.

Steven Mnuchin, an ex-employee of Soros as Treasury Secretary?


BombThrowers
Wall Street big shot Steven Mnuchin’s name is being mentioned as a possible Secretary of the Treasury in the upcoming Trump administration.

Scratch that: his name isn’t just being thrown around as the Treasury pick. Minutes ago the New York Times reported it’s going to happen — possibly as soon as tomorrow.

The Old Gray Lady calls Mnuchin “a financier with deep roots on Wall Street and in Hollywood but no government experience.”

We noted on May 5 that Mnuchin was a curious choice for finance chairman of Trump’s campaign.  (And, sorry, I still have no idea how to pronounce Mnuchin. Maybe Man-oo-kin? Man-oo-chin?)

Mayors of Sanctuary Cities Who Disregard Federal Law Should Be Arrested

The United States is either a nation of people ruled by laws and Constitution, or we are a nation ruled by ideological tyrants. One example of this is the illegal protecting by “Sanctuary cities” of convicted criminals.

“It is time to start locking up local officials like Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for interfering with the enforcement of federal immigration law,” Matthew Vadum of Canada Free Press recently wrote.

The Moral Sickness of the Left

Donald J. Trump is labeled by CNN as a liar on a regular basis, while the dead communist tyrant Fidel Castro is lauded as a revolutionary hero. American reporters are in Havana, Cuba to film people crying on their way to honor a dictator who had recommended that the Soviets launch a nuclear attack on the United States.

Our media never fail to demonstrate that there is no limit to how low they can sink. The sickness in the media is only matched by the pro-Castro sentiments in people like Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate working with Hillary Clinton to overturn the results of the 2016 presidential election. Stein remarked, “Fidel Castro was a symbol of the struggle for justice in the shadow of empire. Presente!”

Virtually all day long on Monday, CNN was broadcasting the “news” that Trump had “falsely” claimed that millions had voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election. CNN had not bothered to provide to its viewers the 45 pages of documentation of Trump’s claim from the Trump transition office. Instead, CNN simply dismissed it out of hand.

Whackjob academic losing it over Trump victory

BombThrowers

Paranoid America-hating left-wing academic Mark Q. Sawyer of UCLA has been circulating emails among his colleagues to let them know about the despair he feels as a result of President-elect Donald Trump’s election victory.

“Democratic norms and institutions and basic civility rest upon very little. Trumpism as a political philosophy has already produced more than its fair share of violence. The confrontations will get worse and more intense as he proceeds on a project that is far more divisive than anything we have seen from the Republican party with playing off racial unrest and paranoia is the central currency,” he wrote, according to the Daily Caller.

He cautioned his colleagues, writing “I pray my colleagues are not sending the message to just calm the waters and let people think this is just business as usual (as the doomsday clock gets moved).”

Mushy-headed AU students prefer Castro over Trump

BombThrowers
An informal survey of American University students in Washington, D.C. reveals that they prefer dead Cuban tyrant Fidel Castro over President-elect Donald Trump.

As Amber Athey of Campus Reform reports,

In order to gauge millennial feelings on the passing of the authoritarian Cuban leader, Campus Reform asked students at American University which political figure they viewed more favorably: Castro or Trump.

While several students identified the repressive elements of Castro’s regime, such as jailing and murdering his political opponents, few were willing to say that this made them view him less favorably than Donald Trump.

The Truth will always out

Generations of little kids embarking upon practicing deceit were warned by mothers catching them out and admonished, “The truth will out”. 

“The truth always comes out in the wash,” as my own Mother used to put it.

In the generation of the present day the truth has become more illusive than ever.
