I was never a fan of potty-mouthed celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, but...

Dana Mathewson

I may have just become a mourner of his death.

He just may have been one more statistic of the vast Clinton death machine, if you can believe this story.

It makes sense. Bourdain had everything going for him -- a number of new projects, etc. No reason to commit suicide. And remember, Vince Foster's "suicide" still looks pretty suspicious after all those years.

Get Out of Jail Free Cards

Wil Wirtanen

So according to the Democrats,

If a burglar of your home has a child in their getaway car, you can’t arrest them because you would be separating them from their child.

Another on the list of Smug Infantile Ignorance of the Democrats.

According to Twitchy the group - Democratic Socialists for America - was represented by an employee of the Department of Justice.

DSA thug Allison Hrabar is a paralegal at the DOJ. Given the attempts by the FBI and Robert Mueller to run Trump out of town on a rail, one has to woner just what is going on at Justice?

Federal law, not President Trump, dictates how unaccompanied children and family units are treated at the border

This from Americans for Limited Government. It explains exactly what the "separation of familes" is and is not.

Robert Romano

Between 2009 and 2016, more than 242,000 unaccompanied children arrived at the southwest border, according to data compiled by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, averaging about 30,000 a year. In 2016, that number was about 20,000.

In addition, in 2016, about 23,000 family units were apprehended at the border. According to CBP, "Family Unit represents the number of individuals (either a child under 18 years old, parent or legal guardian) apprehended with a family member by the U.S. Border Patrol.”

Normally, what happens, per a 2008 federal law against human trafficking and federal court rulings, is unaccompanied children are given to the care of the Department of Health and Human Services, and eventually released, ideally to a relative residing in the U.S., within 20 days.

As for the adults, there is no provision of law allowing them to stay, even if they arrived with children. If upon capture and pleading guilty and being released to ICE custody, they elect to be deported, however, they can return home with the children before the child is required to be released within the 20-day court-imposed deadline — provided there is time to hear the case. more...

Sleazy Rider Calls for Raping and Torturing Trump's Child

Jack Kemp

This is sediton, a call for warfare. Go to the website to see these over-the-line calls for criminal action by Peter Fonda.


Melania Trump Calls Secret Service After Actor Peter Fonda Suggests Kidnapping Barron Trump


"First Lady Melania Trump’s office confirmed to The Daily Caller Wednesday that they have notified the Secret Service about actor Peter Fonda’s suggestion, in a series of since-deleted vulgar tweets, that Barron Trump should be kidnapped.

"The tweet is sick and irresponsible and USSS has been notified,” spokesperson for the first lady Stephanie Grisham told The Daily Caller.

Fonda also promoted horrific violence against DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and called for the kidnapping of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders's children.
Fonda also called for the public harassment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, including harassing their children at school."

Catholic Bishops and the Sheepgate

Timothy Birdnow

"Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.”

—John 10:1-10

The Archbishop of St. Louis has written a pastoral letter http://archstl.org/node/4406459calling on Catholics in his Archdiocese to "resist” the Trump Administration policy of removing at-risk children from their incarcerated parents at the southern border. Archbishop Robert Carlson is calling on Catholics to send letters of protest.

The Legend of Birdnow's Car

Timothy Birdnow

And now for something completely different.

The hysteria of the day, the fake news and faux anger passing itself off as journalism - especially in this last week with the "Hail Mary Pass" of Trump splitting families story that has the President being compared unfavorably to Hitler and supposed news journalists breaking down and blubbering on air - has us all pretty wrung out. (And it's not confined to the national news; my local affiliates have been hysterical about this too, and I could not even get relief by watching an old Star Trek the Next Generation rerun because they chose an episode about how terrible it is to split up families!) clearly we need some levity to restore our sanity.

I got mine last night in a strange and marvelously silly dream and I thought I'd share it with you. more...

American and United No Fly List for Aliens Out of U.S.

Timothy Birdnow

United Airlines and the pirates of the air - Americanos Airlines - are refusing to fly expatriated illegal alien children out of the u.s.

El Zorro (Fox for you old fashioned Anglo types) reports:

"Like many other US airlines, American has contracts with the federal government that allow authorities to use its planesto provide for certain travel. For example, the company said it has "carried refugees for non-profits and the government.”

"We have no desire to be associated with separating families, or worse, to profit from it,” the company said in a statement Wednesday. "We have every expectation the government will comply with our request and we thank them for doing so.”

"The family separation process that has been widely publicized is not at all aligned with the values of American Airlines — we bring families together, not apart,” the statement reads.

American said it has no way of knowing for sure whether its aircraft hasbeen used to transport migrant children who have been separated from their families, but added it would be "extremely disappointed to learn that is the case.”

"

he government does not disclose information about the nature of the flights it takes or the passengers who are traveling,” the company said.

The statement from American comes after days of controversy following reports that the Trump administration has instituted a "zero tolerance” policy fordetaining undocumented immigrants at the US border.

End exerpt.

Liberals Please Continue Until you have Left the State!

Timotlhy Birdnow

I love this or did before the billboard company turned chicken.

From the article:

"Liberals," the billboard reads. "Please continue on I-40 until you have left our GREAT STATE OF TEXAS."

At least that's what it will read until sometime Wednesday. Randy Burkett, who owns Burkett Outdoor Advertising and the sign, told McClatchy that after all the backlash and media attention the sign got on Tuesday and Wednesday, it would be taken down immediately.

"I was shocked that it traveled that fast," Burkett said. "I believe in free speech, but this country is divided enough as it is. I've spoken with the client, and he's agreed that it should come down. We'll be reimbursing him."

He said that the client who bought the advertising space was an individual, not an organization. The sudden surge of web traffic crashed the Burkett Outdoor Advertising website Wednesday morning.

The billboard is visible, at least for the time being, to eastbound drivers on Interstate 40 outside the small Panhandle town of Vega, which is about 30 miles west of Amarillo.

End excerpt.

I wish I had thought of that!  We should do more of it.

Yes, this community just east of St. Louis is officially the Third Worldiest place norte of the Rio Grande.

The Rainbow Stars and Bars

Jack Kemp forwards this:


QUOTE:

Last year, my office in Washington had to temporarily close because of threats when, in a cable TV interview, I equated the LGBTQ rainbow flag to the confederate flag. From my point a view, it's a totally reasonable assertion. As a black American, the Confederate flag communicates to me that I am not welcome. As a Christian American, the rainbow flag communicates to me that I am not welcome.

According to a recent Gallup survey, 41 percent of Americans identify as evangelical Christians. Will the course of events in LGBTQ-controlled America preclude them from shopping, working, speaking, existing in our nation's public spaces?
 




Dana Mathewson tosses in his 2c:

Star nails it -- as she always does. The Left wants to control everything. I might point out that most gays (I can't speak for some of the other people identified by the other letters in that LGBTQ mashup) merely want to live their lives and be treated like "everyone else," and are happy that they can go into a Chick-fil-A (for example) and get a good meal and not be hassled.

But the alphabets who view everything through a political lens really seem to want to control the world and bend it in their direction. I don't think they're going to succeed (Lord help them if they ever did -- they'd find they have much, much more of a job on their hands than they bargained for), but at the same time we have to push back -- with manners if possible -- whenever we can.

To counteract that nutcase who apologized for eating at Chick-fil-A, we should go there, get a sandwich and rave about the quality of the food and the service on their website --

Malaria Medicine & PTSD SUICIDES

Jack Kemp


Mefloquine: The Military’s Suicide Pill


NOTE:
Former Army Epidemiologist and Preventative Medicine Officer
Remington Nevin, MD, MPH, is a former Army epidemiologist and Preventive Medicine officer and a doctoral student in the Department of Mental Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, in Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Nevin serves as a consultant and expert witness in cases involving claims of mefloquine toxicity and recently testified to the U.S. Senate on the drug’s toxic effects.

THE ARTICLE:

In late July, 2013, the FDA issued a powerful "black box” safety warning for a drug which has been taken by hundreds of thousands of troops to prevent malaria. The drug is called mefloquine, and it was previously sold in the U.S. by F. Hoffman-La Roche under the trade name Lariam. Since being developed by the U.S. military over four decades ago, mefloquine has been widely used by troops on deployments in Africa, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Liberals Demand Child Endangerment on Border

Timothy Birdnow

I went to visit my father today and, after watching the Russians beat Egypt in the World Cup (I imagine Robert Mueller will start looking into that too) we turned on Fox News. He and I both became quite angry at the whole network; clearly the leftward drift at Fox is becoming more pronounced.

For one thing Juan Williams was absent from The Five and his replacement was, drumroll please... Donna Brazil! Yes, the Democrat Partisan hack who gave Hillary Clinton the debate questions when she was a "journalist" was invited to sit on the panel of The Five. And, of course, they treated her with kid gloves, since she is a black woman and a "guest". Why would anyone think it appropriate to put someone like that on? That would have destroyed a conservative, especially a white conservative, permanently. Why is the network supposedly on our side giving someone like that the time of day? more...

Have Space Suit Will Travel; Trump Orders Creation of Space Corps

Timothy Birdnow

Donald Trump has ordered the creation of a Space Force, a fifth branch of the U.S. military.

According to Reuters:

"It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space,” Trump said before a meeting of his National Space Council.

"We are going to have the Air Force and we’re going to have the ‘Space Force.’ Separate but equal. It is going to be something,” he said later.: more...

Replacing the American People

Timothy Birdnow

Barack Obama seemed determined to fundamentally alter the ethnic and religious and social makeup of the United States. According to Judicial Watch:

According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the U.S. admitted 84,994 refugees during fiscal year 2016, just short of the 85,000 target set by the Obama administration. The U.S. admitted 16,370 refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo, 12,587 from Syria, 12,347 from Myanmar, 9,880 from Iraq and 9,020 from Somalia. Pew Research reports that nearly 39,000 Muslim refugees entered the U.S. in fiscal year 2016, the highest number on record, according to analysis of data from the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center.

In fiscal year 2015, the U.S. reportedly admitted 70,000 refugees. more...

How would Reparations to Blacks Work?

Dana Mathewson

Good article -- sent by Eddie. Takes awhile to read, but worth the time. I just wish Frum had pointed out that the money that would be spent (if it is spent) to improve the quality of life for blacks in this project would also improve the quality of life for whites, when talking about schools.


The Impossibility of Reparation

David Frum writes in a 2014 article:

"The United States government launched its reparations program to African Americans in autumn of 1969. Originally known as "the Philadelphia plan,” the program set quotas for black employment in construction trades. Over the next decades, such quotas would spread from industry to industry, and would expand into higher education and public contracting.


The plan is usually credited to the Nixon administration. Sometimes it’s even described as a secret scheme to split the Democratic base. The history is more prosaic. The plan originated under the Johnson administration, following President Johnson’s pledge in his 1965 Howard University speech to seek racial equality as a result, not merely as a theory.

In this month’s Atlantic, Ta-Nehisi Coates makes an eloquent case for restitution to black Americans, not only for wrongs done before 1865, but as much or more for wrongs done in the century of segregation that followed. Yet this powerful essay explicitly disavows any consideration of the single most important question about the restitution he has in mind: How would it work?

The affirmative action experience since 1969 offers some insights into what is likely to happen next:{ more...
