    Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell, the first and to date only MLB player to kneel during the national anthem, was combative and foul-mouthed during his arrest for aggravated assault last October, video shows. TMZ Sports obtained video of Maxwell’s arrest after he allegedly brandished a gun at a Postmates driver. When police arrived, they found Maxwell shirtless and smelling of alcohol, and he began berating police, telling them “half of America is afraid of y’all” and “that’s the reason why I took a knee.” He also becomes emotional as he describes how he and his family received death threats for...

    Trump administration’s decision to withdraw the United States from this charade sends a signal that the United States, the UN’s largest funder, will no longer tolerate business as usual, including double standards and hypocrisy, at the UN The United States has withdrawn from the United Nations Human Rights Council. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced the Trump administration’s decision at the State Department Tuesday afternoon. “We take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of...

Crocodiles crying for babies in virtue signalling how they like all members of the mainstream media dominating prog-left care—“really care”—about children being separated from their parents at border crossings before being locked up in horrifying cages.
  • S.E. Cupp Gets It Right: "Not all Women are Democrats"

    Independent Women's Forum ^ | June 18, 2018 | Patrice Lee Onwuka
    TV show host and political pundit S.E. Cupp tore apart a flawed view of women and politics with a New York Times essay that was simply titled, "No Not All Women are Democrats." The idea should be so simple, that a duh would be the response. But sadly, female leaders on the left from Hillary Clinton to Michelle Obama have spent the past 19 months trying to understand this phenomenon. Cupp made a number of salient points, but these three points stick out: Don't judge me by my looks. Cupp writes: As a college-educated twentysomething woman with cool glasses and...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Democrats in Action! – It is now no longer enough for Democrats and their spokespeople pretending to be journalists at our nation’s news outlets to simply fake the news on this fabricated border issue, now they must cry or otherwise become irrational while doing so. Thus, on Tuesday we had the spectacle of Rep. Elijah Cummings pretending to breakdown crying as he screamed through his irrelevant opening statement at the House Judiciary Committee’s FBI corruption hearing, MSNBC fake host Rachel Maddow pretending to cry (without visible tears, of course) as she read...

    The Payne County Oklahoma Budget Board voted to restore county employee's Second Amendment rights on May 14, 2018. Oklahoma requires a state issued carry permit to carry a handgun outside the home, except for certain, limited exceptions. The Payne County Budget Board made clear that county employees can exercise Second Amendment rights inside of county buildings, if they have  a valid carry permit and sign a waiver. The waiver states they understand some limitations, and they are not to draw the firearm except in valid defense of self or others. From stwnewspress.com: Reding said the Budget Board, a body...

    For a left-wing civil rights organization purportedly dedicated to protecting minorities, the George Soros-supported Southern Poverty Law Center spends a lot of time peddling hatred against minorities, or at least those minorities who dare to step off the liberal plantation. ake Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformist who’s earned a reputation for telling it how it is about the millennia-old religion. While speaking on London’s LBC radio station last year, for instance, he boldly demanded a caller “stop pretending” violence and terrorism have nothing to do with Islam. During a discussion on Sky News earlier this year, he likewise slammed the...

    Does America break up families, keep kids in cages, and abuse illegal immigrants? Obviously, not enough or there would be far fewer illegal immigrants. (They're far more looped into the risks than the average Joe). The facts are this is rare, temporary, this has been done forever (and under the Obama and Clinton administrations), and the idea that criminals shouldn't be separated from their kids is absurd. Under the Democrats reasoning, for domestic crime, it is fine to separate families. But for foreign invaders and perpetrators should get special exceptions. But a nation without laws is no longer a nation....

    The Atlantic ^ | June 19, 2018 | David A. Graham
    What are infestations? They are takeovers by vermin, rodents, insects. What does one do with an infestation? Why, one exterminates it. One of the paradoxes of modern-day American politics is that white identity politics can be a potent political platform, as long as you don’t call it that. Policies with racist effects are often popular; explicit racism is verboten. Thus Donald Trump can win the presidency while running, as my colleague Adam Serwer documented, on a program of discrimination, but when Corey Stewart, a Republican politician in Virginia, makes his white-identity politics too explicit he gets shunned by the GOP....

    Say good-bye to what you grew up with and hello to 2018 America altered not by the normal change that the passage of time creates but a socially-engineered globalist entity spawned by the communist Left over the last five decades The first Americans I’ve met, Pam and her husband James from Chicago worked with my dad at the refinery. He was an engineer from a small family and she followed him to this God-forsaken country where everyone seemed to be a prisoner. They appeared friendly in a plastic way, smiling all the time for no apparent reason, totally unconcerned about...

    “Never let a crisis go to waste,” the Clintonista Rahm Emanuel once said. Hillary Clinton is very concerned about what’s happening on the southern border, and despite not being a candidate for anything (yet), she wants Americans to give her money to do something about it. The failed Democratic candidate for president sent a fundraising email this afternoon to supporters, asking them to donate to her organization so it can exploit the “humanitarian crisis” she says is being created by “Trump’s immigration policies.” She writes: What’s happening to families at the border right now is horrific: Nursing infants ripped away...

Wait, what? – In keeping with her life-long belief that there’s a sucker born every minute, the Pantsuit Princess has decided to use the media-generated fake border crisis as a fundraiser. Yes, even though she isn’t technically running for anything right now, the Grasping Grifter, even at her advanced age, just cannot let a good fake crisis go to waste.

    Hard-up North Korea has so much to gain from denuclearising and becoming part of the civilised world. The hermit kingdom was actually wealthier than the now-affluent South before the Korean War, and is blessed with everything from abundant mineral resources and oil reserves to fertile agricultural land and stunning tourist-friendly beaches, as noted by President Trump. With this in mind, here are 15 industries that could make North Korea very rich indeed. Tourism During their historic summit in Singapore this month, President Trump showed Kim Jong-un a video extolling the virtues of tourism. “They have great beaches,” President Trump told...

    There is a great amount of bleeding heartism going on right now regarding the border policy of separating children from their families. Even Laura Bush has joined the chorus. In an unusual break from her political retirement, former first lady Laura Bush condemned the Trump administration’s practice of separating parents and children while their parents are prosecuted for illegally entering the country. “I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart,” she wrote in a Washington Post article published on...

    Meanwhile, the same lawmakers who allow abortion on demand on the grounds of ‘Womens’ Rights’ call the White house administration “thugs” for separating families—by deceitfully using faux pictures to prove it. The mysterious resurfacing of viral Internet photos of supposedly locked-up children tearfully separated from their parents—from the 2014 Barack Obama era—even after being exposed on their timing—are still out there roping dopes. This time, no less than former 1st Lady Laura Bush is the big Rope-a-Dope victim in spite of it being unprecedented for the former First Lady to criticize the policies of the current president.

    Twenty-three of Major League Baseball’s 30 teams are slated to host LGBT “pride nights” in 2018, leaving just two teams that have never officially celebrated homosexuality. Most of the events are slated to occur in June, Outsports.com reported, to coincide with LGBT Pride Month. Among the teams joining the trend are the Chicago Cubs, who are also doing a second event in August; Chicago White Sox, New York Mets, Milwaukee Brewers, Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, and Kansas City Royals. The Brewers, Baltimore Orioles, and Cincinnati Reds are among the teams officially joining the trend for the first time...
