  • Democrats Falling Into Trump's 2020 Trap

    Is there a better foil for Donald Trump than "The Squad?" The Democrats have done Trump a monumental favor by enabling these screeching harpies, giving them a platform to spout their loony views and treating their outrageous comments with kid gloves. Trump's 2020 strategy became obvious this week, as tweet after tweet from the president targeted Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), making them the stars of his little patriotic play. In fairness to the radical ladies, they are truly asking for it. It's like they're all walking around with a sign...
  • Trump proposed a 'white vs black contestants' 'The Apprentice' in a recording

    In 2005, Donald Trump proposed a season of "The Apprentice" that would pit an all-black team against an all-white team. Trump then asked Stern's African-American co-host, Robin Quivers, the same question. "Well," she said, "I think you're going to have a riot." But Trump wasn't too concerned about the potential ramifications of the show. "I think that it would be handled very beautifully by me. Because, as you know, I'm very diplomatic," he told Stern, adding that while there would be a mix of light-skinned and dark-skinned black contestants, the white team would be strictly blonds.
  • The unexpected legacy of Justice Stevens – Conservative dismay over his record led to THIS

    Justice John Paul Stevens was the last of the greatest generation. Stevens enlisted in the Navy the day before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. He was awarded the Bronze Star for his work as a cryptographer: his codebreaking team’s efforts led to the downing of the plane of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, the commander of the Japanese navy and architect of the Pearl Harbor attack. Stevens would go on to reference his experience as a World War II veteran often in his Supreme Court opinions. Especially memorable was his defense of the American flag in Texas v. Johnson, the 1989 case...

    Former President Bill Clinton’s connection to since-convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was established through British heiress and longtime Epstein pal Ghislaine Maxwell, who also became a friend of former first daughter Chelsea, according to a new report Sunday. Clinton’s family grew close with Maxwell after Clinton left office in early 2001, Politico reported. “The Clintons were relatively intimate with her,” a friend of Maxwell’s told the Web site. A person familiar with the relationship also described Maxwell as “the contact between Epstein and Clinton.” “She ended up being close to the family because she and Chelsea ended up becoming close,” the...

  • Clemson’s Dabo Swinney to assistants: Spend time with your own kids, or you’re fired

    The Post & Courier ^ | 07-21-2019 | Joshua Needleman
    Rare is it that Dabo Swinney issues threats. The Clemson football coach dances with his players and takes his assistants on annual skiing trips. Fear is not part of his playbook. But Swinney makes an exception when it comes to safeties coach Mickey Conn, whose oldest son, Brodey, plays on the same football and baseball teams as Swinney’s youngest son, Clay. “Dabo says, ‘If you don’t go to the games, I’m going to fire you,’” Conn said. And so Conn goes to the games. He values his employment. He then returns to the Tigers’ facility grateful to work for a...

    Bishop Schneider: They Use "Tricks" To Abolish Celibacy Dramatically evoking an „eucharistic famine,“ allegedly caused by a lack of celibate priests, is not more than a „trick“ to abolish celibacy, Bishop Athanasius Schneider wrote in a statement (July 16). He explained that receiving Holy Communion is not necessary for salvation, unlike having the faith, praying, or keeping the commandments. An example: Many desert fathers lived for years without Holy Communion and were nevertheless deeply united with Christ. Schneider who grew up among Germans in Soviet Union, received only very rarely the sacraments because the priests could come only rarely. He...

    (Video at source) CNN host S.E. Cupp went off on Republican lawmakers and officials who have tried to distance themselves from President Donald Trump. “The Republican Party is now fully and totally responsible for his racist, divisive, un-American ideas. They are yours as much as any policy is. In fact it is the policy,” Cupp said Saturday on S.E. Cupp Unfiltered. “I hear it all of the time from Republican lawmakers. Well, I wish he would focus on policy. I don’t like what the president said. I am focused on policy. What a load of crap,” Cupp said. “Here is...
  • Trump abdicates role as leader of free world because he doesn’t support American values

    For the first time since the end of World War I, the president of the United States is not the leader of the free world. When the guns fell silent at the end of the Great War on Nov. 11, 1918, Europe was in ashes after more than four years of fighting. America was newly ascendant, a leader in manufacturing, science, military power and global influence – with a home front untouched by the destruction of war. Our leading role as the most powerful and influential nation on Earth was solidified with our victory in World War II. We never...

    Like Modi, Trump is probably headed to a victory with a bigger margin with this strategy and the Democrats are waltzing into the trap. This week saw some remarkable political manoeuvring from US President Donald Trump. The question is, what do we make of his “go back” tweets on the four Congresswomen – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar? Is it the new normal in US politics, where accusations of racism fly thick and fast and where not-so-racist House Speaker Nancy Pelosi prefers aligning with the extreme-Left against a more-racist Trump? When Nancy Pelosi herself was called...

    Artful Dilettante ^ | July 21, 2019 | Robert Seyko
    This is a serious question, but I can't get a serious answer. Where can I get a temporary tattoo ? One that lasts as long as I like, be it a day or the rest of my life. It goes like this. One steps into a tattoo parlor. You get the tattoo, and the tattoo parlor gives you a dissolving solution when you leave to be used whenever you like, or not. I cannot believe this has not been invented.

    SHOCKING NUMBERS! 1.5 million Muslim asylum seeker/migrant-wannabes arrived Germany in 2015…but what about since then? JULY 21, 2019 BY BARENAKEDISLAM It’s been hard to find a a numbers count in the years since 2015. But, apparently, the number of Muslim invaders seeking asylum in German has been increasing EVERY year, with 2018 topping off at 1.8 million, with 1.3 million receiving asylum. So in addition to the 1.5 million in 205, let’s estimate there were 1.6 million in 2016, 1.7 million in 2017, and 1.8 million in 2018.All together that equals 6.6 million Muslims arriving since 2015. Let’s say one-third...

    According to court documents filed in New York on Friday, the March shooting death of prominent Gambino crime family boss Francesco 'Franky Boy' Cali was not a mob hit at all, as had previously been assumed. Cali was allegedly shot by 24-year-old Anthony Comello in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island on March 13 this year, but Comello was not acting on the orders of one of the five major New York crime families. In fact, Comello seemed simply to be a man who lived with his parents and was obsessed with President Trump and a far-right conspiracy theory...

    A Russian space capsule with three astronauts aboard has docked with the International Space Station after a fast-track trip to the orbiting laboratory. The Soyuz capsule docked at 22:48 GMT Saturday, just six hours and 20 minutes after blasting off from Russia’s launch complex in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. The launch took place on the 50th anniversary of the day U.S. astronauts landed on the moon. The capsule is carrying Andrew Morgan of the United States on his first spaceflight, Russian Alexander Skvortsov on his third mission to the space station and Italian Luca Parmitano.

    BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Federal authorities arrested a leading lieutenant with Mexico’s Gulf Cartel in Texas after he illegally snuck across the Rio Grande to enter the United States. Law enforcement agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) had their sights on the cartel cell leader for some time in connection with multiple drug shipments allegedly linked to him. U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested Rene “El Diablo” Garcia Cantu near La Paloma, Texas, after he illegally entered the country in a remote rural area. During a background check, agents determined that Garcia Cantu is the target of an ongoing DEA...

    A man charged with joining the Islamic State (ISIS) as a sniper and firearms instructor originally came to the United States through the “Diversity Visa Lottery,” a program responsible for bringing more than half a million randomly chosen foreign nationals to the country in a single decade. Ruslan Maratovich Asainov, 42-years-old, was charged last week in a Brooklyn, New York, federal court for aiding ISIS in 2013 when he allegedly traveled to Turkey and Syria to fight for the terrorist group. Asainov, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency has confirmed, first arrived in the U.S. through the...

    Washington (CNN)A federal judge Friday paused congressional Democrats' subpoenas of Trump Organization financial records, 10 days before the records were due in a lawsuit over whether President Donald Trump is violating the Constitution. The delay is a win for Trump, even if temporary. He's attempting -- and so far has succeeded -- to hold off multiple subpoenas from the Democrats that could divulge secrets about his company and assets. Judge Emmet Sullivan made the decision Friday shortly after the appeals court above him said it wanted to hear the emoluments case. The case had been progressing, with the Democrats sending...
