GOP Going After California Voters By Splitting The State

According to Salon they have hired Nigel Farage to help make it happen. Farage was one of the masterminds behind Britain’s move away from the European Union, called ‘Brexit’. They are calling this effort ‘Calexit’.

“Brexit engineer Nigel Farage hired to promote effort to break California in two”

Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage, the British politician known for his successful campaign to get the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, has teamed up with the backers of a campaign to split California into two separate states: a coastal state that would be dominated by liberal-dominated portion and an inland state that would be far more conservative.”

Obama’s Legacy Continues To Circle The Drain

We knew there was collusion between Obama and the Kremlin.

If they do release this information it will be interesting – and potentially devastating for Obama.

“Russia Threatens To Leak Things Obama Asked Moscow To “Keep Secret””

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova

Asked about the current state of U.S.-Russia relations, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova gave a long winded answer that can be read below. In her answer, Zakharova suggested Russia may “publish leaks” about “secrets” the Obama administration asked the Russian government to keep private. The shocking statement can be found in the second to last paragraph of Zakharova’s answer highlighted in both bold and italic.”

The Question Is, Did He Need To Kill Them?

It sounds like it was justified. He has not been arrested nor charged and it is being called self defense. I don’t know Oklahoma law but in most places you are not justified in killing thieves. If they threatened him with deadly force that is an entirely different thing.

“Homeowner’s son kills three would-be burglars with AR-15”

Three would-be robbers were shot and killed Monday when an Oklahoma homeowner’s son opened fire on them with an AR-15, authorities said.

Wagoner County sheriff’s deputies were called to the home in Broken Arrow, southeast of Tulsa, around 12:30 p.m. local time. When they arrived, they found the three dead suspects and two uninjured residents.

[…]

It was not immediately clear whether the suspects were armed, but Mahoney said the preliminary investigation indicated the shootings were in self-defense. The homeowner’s son volunteered to give a statement at the sheriff’s office.”

This Doesn’t Look Good

“Gun-Totin’ Left-Wingers Demonstrate at the Arizona Capitol: Is Bloodshed on the Horizon?”

Hey, lefties with guns, that’s cool.

At least, that was my first impression upon seeing about 40 or so assorted anarchists, Brown Berets, and members of a group calling itself the Phoenix John Brown Gun Club across the street from the state Capitol, openly armed to the proverbial teeth.”

Counter-demonstrators at the MAGA march included heavily-armed Brown Berets, anarchists, and assorted left-wingers.

The Phoenix John Brown Gun Club’s Motto: “Putting The Red Back In Redneck”.

Remember The Islamists Who Attacked The ‘Draw Muhammad’ Competition In Garland, Texas In 2015?

Two men traveled from Phoenix, AZ to shoot the place up.

CBS has learned that the FBI knew they were planning the attack and did nothing to stop it. They had an undercover agent in contact with the men. He was in a car right behind them when they started shooting.

What has been going on with the FBI under President Obama?

“60 Minutes investigates first ISIS-claimed attack in U.S. and what the FBI knew”

Anderson Cooper: After the trial, you discovered that the government knew a lot more about the Garland attack than they had let on?

Dan Maynard: That’s right. Yeah. After the trial we found out that they had had an undercover agent who had been texting with Simpson, less than three weeks before the attack, to him “Tear up Texas.” Which to me was an encouragement to Simpson.

[…]

And this past November, Maynard was given another batch of documents by the government, revealing the biggest surprise of all. The undercover FBI agent was in a car directly behind Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi when they started shooting. This cell-phone photo of school security guard Bruce Joiner and police officer Greg Stevens was taken by the undercover agent seconds before the attack.

[…]

Dan Maynard: I can’t tell you whether the FBI knew the attack was gonna occur. I don’t like to think that they let it occur. But it is shocking to me that an undercover agent sees fellas jumping out of a car and he drives on. I find that shocking.

Anderson Cooper: That he didn’t try to stop–

Dan Maynard: He didn’t try to stop ‘em. Or he didn’t do something. I mean, he’s an agent, for gosh sakes.”

John Harwood Gets It But Thinks Its Bad

He calls the idea of limiting government radical. That proves he is a leftist – a progressive. At least half of Americans think American government – at all levels – is too intrusive and too powerful. Harwood calls that notion radical.

This term, ‘Radical’ is a new way for progressives to hurl bad names at us. It’s just another word with a bad connotation. It is a tactic they use. They embrace terms like ‘Racist’, ‘Mysogynist’, ‘Homophobe’, and others to bludgeon others into shutting up.

“Clinton collaborator John Harwood: Republicans “radically opposed to government itself””

On this question of opposition party versus governing party, the modern Republican party is radically opposed to government itself. They’re radically opposed to taxation. What is governing? Governing is about taking action to solve people’s problems. They want government to do less rather than more. And so what they’re trying to do on health care is an act of negation, it’s an act of taking things away that President Obama did.”

Twenty Or Thirty Anti-Trump Protesters Attack 2,000 Pro-Trump Marchers, Get Their Asses Kicked

The video below shows an anti-Trump divot, dressed in black, attacking peaceful pro-Trump marchers. The attacked fight back. Somehow that’s not fair, I guess. It looks like there were a lot more news people there than counter-protesters.

“Violence breaks out at pro-Trump rally in Huntington Beach”

Pearsall said about 2,000 marchers and 30 counterprotesters showed up to the noontime march, held at Bolsa Chica State Beach.

The counterprotesters lined up on the beach trail and were hoping to stop the marchers from progressing, said Byron Lopez, 20, of Santa Ana.

But when marchers approached the area, the counterprotesters parted and people were able to pass through until the violence erupted.

Lopez said he was there as a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and did not participate in the violence. He said the masked men were part of Antifa, an anti-fascist movement.”

Tulsa Police Officer Runs Over Woman Shooting At Him

I’d call it a good decision. They were right in front of an elementary school. Had he shot at her he would have endangered the people in the school.

Warning – graphic video.

The incident unfolded Saturday at around 2:24 p.m. at 89th Street and Harvard Avenue, near Jenks East Elementary School, Tulsa World reported.

About 20 seconds into the video, police can be heard saying, “She’s running!” and then, “Shots fired!”

Five seconds later, 21-year-old Madison Sueann Dickson is seen running down a sidewalk. She appears to be holding a black object in her hand, which police identified as a gun, the paper reported.

Moments later, the police car drove up on the sidewalk and rammed into her, causing her to fall, and go beneath the hood. Only then does the officer, Jonathan Grafton, bring the car to a halt.”

More Evidence That Progressivism Is A Mental Disorder

Harris is a US Senator. She has Barbara Boxer’s seat. She was California’s Attorney General which explains a lot about that state.

“KAMALA HARRIS WON’T VOTE FOR GORSUCH BECAUSE HE RULES WITH THE LAW NOT FEELINGS”

Harris

The stakes don’t get any higher. Some argue that if a nominee has a stellar legal resume, he or she is qualified to sit on the bench and our job is done. I disagree. As U.S. senators, we have an obligation to also examine a nominee’s legal approach and ask whether he or she considers the impact of those decisions on our society and the daily lives of our people.”

An Argument For Increasing The Voting Age To 30

Democrats have succeeded in reducing the voting age. Now we have children deciding who will be elected and how much you will pay in taxes. I have contended for a long time that young people do not have the maturity nor have their brains completely developed until about age 30. It is refreshing to see that they, themselves, also see their immaturity.

“At What Age Do Millennials Consider Themselves Adults? The Answer Will Stun You.”

A new report has found that millennials don’t consider themselves adults until they reach the age of 30.

Yes, you read that correctly.

According to The Wrap, research compiled by David Poltrack, CBS’ chief research officer and their ratings expert, as well as Nielsen Catalina Solutions, found that millennials consider themselves adults at age 30 because that’s when they typically are completely responsible for themselves – they no longer reside with their parents and pay entirely for their own bills.”

Washington Pos Sympathizes With London Terrorist

This kind of thing indicates an illness that infects western journalists. Khalid Masood was an evil man who sought to further the world-wide control that is called Shariah. He killed people and injured many more in his effort to do so. His acts should be remembered for what they were: Hateful and violent. Instead, the Pos writers are treating him with sympathy.

They also call him a loner. If he was alone in his act why have other people been arrested as accomplices? The ‘Loner’ title is designed to elicit even more sympathy because it indicates he suffered from mental problems. It is a false narrative.

“After privileged childhood, London attacker became a troubled loner”

A handout photo made available by the Metropolitan Police shows Khalid Masood, the man behind the terror attack in London. (Metropolitan Police Handout/EPA)

LONDON — On the final night of a troubled, disjointed life that began in the affluent English countryside and ended in a deadly rampage on the streets of London, Khalid Masood returned to his roots.

He had lived for years in the British Midlands, known to neighbors as a devoted gardener but otherwise all but invisible, an urban ghost who left few traces after a series of criminal convictions and a mysterious trip to Saudi Arabia.

Yet on Tuesday night, at age of 52, Masood rented a car and drove to southeast England, where he was raised. At a hotel in the seaside town of Brighton — not far from the gentle and well-to-do towns where classmates from his prep school days remembered him as a happy, soccer-loving teenager — he exchanged jokes with the manager and went to sleep.

He was “friendly and smiley” and said he was visiting friends, the manager, Sabeur Toumi, told British broadcasters on Friday.

The next morning, Masood checked out and drove to London to commit the worst act of terrorism on British soil in more than a decade. By the time he was shot dead by security forces inside the gates of Parliament, more than 50 people lay wounded in the shadow of Big Ben, four of them mortally.”

“Oh, If Only We Were Nicer To Them They Wouldn’t Kill Us” Is Playing Into The Hands Of The Islamists

This woman understands Islam and its goals. She has spent a lifetime trying to warn the west but many western leaders still think that we simply are not nice enough to the radicals.

“Ayaan Hirsi Ali to Liberals: Terrorists “don’t say thank you for being PC”

Islamists only seek a Sharia-compliant world, Ali said, in the wake of Wednesday’s attack in London, a city with progressive leadership, “and whoever is in their way is their enemy.”

She said anyone who does not understand that should not be legislating policy.

Ali also expressed support for Trump’s travel ban saying that although it was rolled out clumsily, she believes Trump takes the threat of terror seriously.”

In Case You Didn’t Know, Elections Have Consequences

The National Rifle Association is dedicated to defending the rights of individual Americans, especially with regard to the Second Amendment. We members are proud of the work they do and we believe that our Association has all the rights to political opinions that leftist groups enjoy. We are thankful that the NRA’s political arm, the Institute For Legislative Action, has become active in national politics. Leftists hate them – and us – because the NRA supports individual rights over the power of the state.

“NRA to Campaign Against Red State Democrats who Oppose Gorsuch”

The Washington Examiner quoted a letter from NRA-ILA executive director Chris Cox, in which he wrote, “The NRA has every confidence that Judge Gorsuch will protect the Second Amendment rights of law abiding gun owners and will faithfully apply the Constitution in the cases that come before him. He has our strongest support for confirmation.”

Cox added, “Because of the importance of this issue to NRA members and gun owners throughout the country, votes on his confirmation will be considered in future candidate evaluations and we will notify our members accordingly.”

The New York Times shows that Senators Baldwin, Brown, Donnelly, Heitkamp, McCaskill, Nelson, and Tester already voted against the confirmation of pro-Second Amendment Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Those votes, plus any votes against Gorsuch, could only be expected to unleash the NRA’s unfettered campaigning power against the Red State Democrats.”

Senator Schumer Commits Political Suicide And Takes Democrats With Him

Newly elected President Donald Trump selected Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court. Everyone, including many Democrats, agrees that Gorsuch is an impeccable candidate for the bench.

From Wolf Blitzer: “I think he did a great job this morning. I think the Democrats have done a pretty poor job, but I think the reason they have done a poor job is there’s not a lot to beat this man up on.”

From John King: “The democrats have not even bruised, blemished anything to this judge so far.”

From MSNBC’s Ari Melber: “I didn’t see a single glove laid on him. He performed himself admirably.”

From CNN’s Gloria Borger: “Judge Gorsuch is completely qualified and everybody knows it. He is totally and completely qualified and he’s exactly the kind of a nominee you would expect from a Republican, period. This is what elections are about.”

From here

Senator Schumer, however, has decided to oppose him. His arguments are weak and based entirely on politics. Everyone knows it, too. Schumer has raised his opposition to a ridiculous level. Gorsuch will be confirmed and he, Schumer, will be made a fool. Even the Washington Pos admits that Democrats who follow Scumer’s lead and oppose Gorsuch will be fighting for their political lives.

Several Democrats, especially those facing upcoming reelection battles in states that Trump won, are facing opposition from conservative organizations bankrolling a multimillion-dollar ad campaign designed to bolster Gorsuch.

There are also competing views among Democrats about whether to filibuster Gorsuch’s nomination — which could provoke the Republican majority to rewrite the rules — or instead avoid confrontation and preserve the filibuster threat for the future. Retaining the filibuster could force Trump to select a relatively moderate nominee if in the coming years he gets a chance to replace a second Supreme Court justice.”

Schumer is playing the same game that got Democrats minority status after voters rejected them in the 2010, 2014, and 2016 elections. The people know he does not have the future of the country at heart. Rather, he is playing political games in the hope of short-term political gains. This is the game Harry Reid played when he ran the Senate and invoked the ‘Nuclear Option’ to halt Republican filibuster. Now The Republicans in the Senate have that and can use it against a Democrat filibuster.

Democrats have caused their own demise and Schumer is embracing the foolishness.

So The ‘Deep State’ Lives?

This is political theater. The FBI is dragging their feet and Nunes is tired of it. To build a fire under them he has told reporters that they are not cooperating. FBI director Comey has refused to give the Congress details of his bureau’s investigations when he was on the stand. Congressional leaders allowed him to clam up but Nunes is pushing back. If he can make this work he will be remembered. Conservatives will call him hero and Democrats will call him foul names.

“NUNES: FBI IS NOT COOPERATING WITH OUR INVESTIGATION INTO TRUMP CAMP SURVEILLANCE”

The FBI is not cooperating with the House of Representatives’ investigation into the NSA’s surveillance of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, the chairman of the U.S. House Permanent Select Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), said today.

During an explosive press conference outside the White House, Nunes told reporters that communications from the Trump team were picked up and disseminated within the government during the 2016 campaign. Nunes said sources within the intelligence community presented him with the information. He spoke to the press after briefing the administration.

“We don’t actually know yet officially what happened to General Flynn,” Nunes said of how communications from Gen. Flynn’s calls were leaked to the press. “We just know that his name leaked out but we don’t know how it was picked up yet. That was one of the things that we asked for in the March 15th letter, was for the NSA, CIA, and FBI to get us all the unmasking that was done.”

“And I’ll tell you, NSA is being cooperative,” Nunes continued, “but so far the FBI has not told us whether or not they’re going to respond to our March 15th letter, which is now a couple of weeks old.”

Is There Anything Smaller Than ‘Micro’?

Macro and Micro are opposites. Macro means large. Macro economics means the study of economics on a large scale. Micro means small. Microscopes are built so we can see things that are too tiny to be seen with an unaided human eye. In normal parlance small means relatively insignificant yet now ‘Micro’ has taken on an unusually powerful significance among the perpetually aggrieved, and spelling challenged, moonbats at university.

The dictionary of Newspeak is getting smaller. Prohibited words will soon outnumber those which are allowed.

“Profs advised to avoid ‘microinequities’ in class”

Two universities are offering faculty guides advising professors to “challenge the gender binary” and avoid “microinequities” in the interest of making classrooms gender inclusive.

Carnegie Mellon University, for one, has produced a guide for creating an inclusive learning environment warning professors that using gendered language, forgetting student names, or other “small unconscious behaviors” in class can make women and minority students feel that they are not valued.

To combat the threat of being non-inclusive, professors are told to steer clear of “microinequities,” which are defined as “small unconscious behaviors…that certain groups experience repeatedly.”

With All His Obfuscating FBI Director Comey Revealed Something Important

Undoubtedly Unattractive Leftists Seek To Ban Man’s Best Idea

According to the linked article this ‘Study’ was not done by any accredited scientific entity. It was done by a group of ‘Volunteers’. The writers of the article accept the conclusions of these volunteers but they should not. Reporting a ‘Study’ released by a bunch of agenda-driven activists is misleading. The article includes several images of one volunteer, Sarah Egner, and no one else, giving the impression that the ‘Group’ who released the ‘Study’ may consist of just one person.

“Yoga Pants: The newest environmental pollutant”

Yoga pants and comfy clothes blamed for rise in ocean pollution and contaminated seafood because microfibers wash into the sea

[…]

Plastic fibers from yoga pants and fleece jackets may be polluting the oceans and finding their way into fish, oysters, and other wildlife, researchers say.

Clothes made from nylon, polyester and other synthetic materials shed microscopic plastic fibers every time they’re washed. The ‘microfibers’ are then flushed into the waterways and eventually make their way into the sea.

One study, conducted by volunteers in Florida, revealed 89 percent of their samples included at least one piece of plastic. Among those, microfibers made up 82 percent of the plastic found.”
