Legacy media going bananas over Trump threat to ‘totally destroy’ North Korea if they nuke us

Rob’s already posted the entire speech so you can see that it wasn’t “menacing” at all, but like I said, that’s the Washington Post. What do you expect from them?

ABC liberal Terry Moran is so beside himself that he’s ready to re-open the Nuremberg trials with Trump on the stand:

New study from British scientists: OK, maybe climate change isn’t that dire a threat after all

You are required to believe this. It’s science. Science! That is incontrovertible. You can fully expect the entire American left to immediately disavow their previous predictions of worldwide calamity, because science now says otherwise.

OK, they’re not going to do that. But you can probably relax:

UN audience audibly shocked when Trump calls socialism a ‘discredited ideology’

This morning, I posted a video of the United Nations speech given today by President Trump.  If you haven’t watched the whole thing, I highly recommend doing so HERE.  However, if you haven’t got time to watch all 45 minutes right now, allow me to draw your attention to one quick snippet. Not only does it contain one of Trump’s (so far) best lines, it’s also illustrative of the inarguable fact that the UN is a big, stinking, pile of hot garbage.

The segment centers around Venezuela, and President Trump’s absolutely correct assessment of socialism:

Israeli Mayors Encourage US to Stop Funding Terrorism

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A letter on behalf of 24 Israeli mayors representing 450,000 residents of Judea and Samaria was sent to U.S. Senator Tom Cotton to encourage U.S. Senators to pass the Taylor Force Act. This bill, which will defund the Palestinian Authority (PA) until its ceases payments and benefits that reward terrorists and their families for terroristic acts against Israel and the United States. Having passed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the bill now awaits a vote by the full Senate.

The letter from the Israeli mayors states: “If we truly want to give peace and coexistence a chance to blossom, then removing the poisonous message the underlies the need for the Taylor Force Act is a critical first step. The PA should receive the very clear message that the U.S. government will no longer look the other way when terrorists are publicly glorified. By exposing these blatant efforts to influence the next generation of Palestinians away from genuine peace efforts, your amendment actually gives peace a chance to take root.”

Israel and the American Jewish crisis

As the New Year 5778 begins, 88% of Israeli Jews say that they are happy and satisfied with their lives. This makes sense. Israel’s relative security, its prosperity, freedom and spiritual blossoming make Israeli Jews the most successful Jewish community in 3,500 years of Jewish history.

The same cannot be said for the Jews of the Diaspora. In Western Europe, Jewish communities that just a generation ago were considered safe and prosperous are now besieged. Synagogues and Jewish schools look like army barracks. And the severe security cordons Jews need to pass through to pray and study are entirely justified. For where they are absent, as they were at the Hyper Cacher Jewish supermarket in Paris in 2015, assailants strike.

Hurricane Heroes

On Friday September 8, 2017 Governor Rick Scott issued a mandatory evacuation order for all residents of the barrier islands on the west coast of Florida where my husband and I live. We anxiously monitored the trajectory of Hurricane Irma and watched with horror as the colossal storm gathered strength and unexpectedly veered west. On Saturday morning we left everything behind and drove north toward safety. 

The drive north on I-75 was a most extraordinary experience. The northbound lanes inched forward packed bumper-to-bumper with evacuees in passenger cars seeking safety away from the storm. In stark contrast the southbound lanes had convoys of trucks - power companies, EMS vehicles, tree companies, huge semis filled with supplies - all driving toward the deadly hurricane. It was a stunning polarity.

Trump-bashing Emmy Awards pull worst ratings ever

The Dodgers were on. I like the Dodgers. I don’t much care one way or the other about the Atlanta Falcons (sorry, boss), but I love to see the Pukers getting their heads handed to them, and that’s what the Falcons were doing.

So even if you’ve got two TVs on the same wall, it’s hard to think of a reason you’d want to take up space on one of them to watch a bunch of self-admiring actors giving themselves made-up awards. Add to this the fact that almost everyone who gets up on stage starts bashing Donald Trump, and you have to think people will be tuning out left and right.

SAF FILES AMICUS BRIEF IN CASE OF FLORIDA MAN’S DEATH BY POLICE

BELLEVUE, WA – Attorneys for the Second Amendment Foundation today filed an amicus brief supporting a request for the U.S. Supreme Court to review a civil case against a Florida sheriff’s office related to the slaying of an innocent man by a sheriff’s deputy who raided the man’s home, unannounced and without warrant or cause.

The case is Young v. Borders. It involves the death of Andrew Lee Scott. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the plaintiffs in this case, citing “qualified immunity” for the officers, which raises serious questions about the ability of police to shoot someone in his own home merely for answering a late-night pounding on his door, with a firearm at his side. According to a summary of the case, sheriff’s deputies did not have a warrant, or announce themselves, and did not suspect the home’s occupants of wrongdoing.

The report vindicates earlier reporting by conservative talk radio host Mark Levin, and by Breitbart News, which the entire mainstream media attempted to dismiss at the time as a “conspiracy theory” to mock Trump and to protect Obama.—More…

THE LAW IS NOT MEANT TO PREVENT ACCOUNTABILITY

(QUEENS PARK) - Randy Hillier (MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox & Addington) is facing an allegation of workplace harassment initiated by the Council of the township of Tay Valley.

The allegation asserts that by bringing the concerns and complaints he’s received from his constituents to the attention of municipally elected representatives, he had violated the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). Further, the allegation also asserts that his opinions on the proper application, interpretation, and enforcement of provincial laws were unwelcome by the complainants, and therefore constituted “workplace harassment.”

Responding to R Street on the Carbon Tax: When Does It Make Sense to Advocate the Impossible?

In a recent series of posts (here and here), I amplified some of Oren Cass’s strongest criticisms of the typical case for a US carbon tax. Seeing an opportunity for a zinger, Josiah Neeley at R Street put up a post entitled, “Prominent carbon tax skeptic admits it could increase economic growth.” Although I appreciate being dubbed “prominent,” as we’ll see the R Street post is wrong in both title and in substance. Neeley is referring to my discussion of a capital tax cut offsetting the damage of a carbon tax, but that of course is far from saying a carbon tax could increase economic growth. Beyond that, Neeley’s advice to me to advocate politically impossible outcomes is also dubious.

Israel and US open first American military base in Israel

BISLACH AIR BASE, Israel — Israel and the U.S. inaugurated the first American military base on Israeli soil on Monday, which will serve dozens of soldiers operating a missile defense system.

The move comes at a time of growing Israeli concerns about archenemy Iran’s development of long-range missiles.

Islamic terrorism—extrinsic or intrinsic?

Since September 11, 2001, there have been 31,722 Islamic terrorist attacks, mostly hitting Muslims. In August, 2017, there were 180 Islamic terrorist attacks in 32 countries, resulting in 1,014 murdered and 1,090 injured.

Christianity is on the verge of extinction in the Middle East. In the past century, over 50% of Middle East Christians emigrated or were killed. According to the May 13, 2015 US House Foreign Affairs Committee testimony, “Christianity could be eradicated from large swaths of the Middle East in the next five years…. In the last decade, the Christian community in Iraq has plummeted from 1.5 million to under 300,000, half of whom are displaced…. [In Muslim countries], there is also real persecution of [Muslim] Yazidis, Turkomen, Shia and Sunni….”

CNN Reports FBI Wiretapped Trump Campaign Manager Manafort, NYT Reports Manafort Could Be Indicted

Whoa.

In an obvious Divine attempt to inject maximum chaos into the American political system just days before the supposed end of the world on September 23, CNN reported on Monday that investigators “wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret orders before and after the election.” Furthermore, CNN says, Manafort was tapped when he was having conversations with Trump — and Manafort had a residence at Trump Tower, so it’s utterly unclear whether the FBI tapped him at that location.


Recall that President Trump accused the Obama administration of tapping Trump Tower in January 2017.—More…
