Remember all that nonsense …

… about all the jobs Obama allegedly “saved or created” and how the MSM kept telling us the economy was doing so great when we all knew (or were) people who had been out of work for what felt like forever?

This president genuinely cares about children

Guy in handcuffs

The good news is that we have a president who genuinely does care about children and he’s vowed to make solving the human trafficking epidemic a priority.

The bad news is that the mainstream media is so corrupt and in-the-tank for Democrats that they haven’t reported on what should be one of the biggest stories in the national news.

The LOOK on her FACE!! LOLOL

2017_03 07 Andrea Mitchell looks mad

In her report, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell cast her failure to get Secretary of State Tillerson to answer her questions as some kind of sign that the Trump State Department is going to be Deep, Dark, and Secretive.

Oh noes!

What actually happened was that Andrea Mitchell behaved rudely, shouting out questions during a photo spray, then got mad when she was appropriately hustled out the door.

A photo spray is a press pool opportunity to snap pictures, often before or after a closed press meeting, so that news outlets will have a graphic for their story. There are no questions allowed.

In this case, the meeting was between Secretary of State Tillerson and the Foreign Minister of Ukraine.

Mitchell not only shouted questions out of turn, but the questions she asked had nothing to do with the Ukraine.

Tillerson was right to ignore her.

Vogue gets schooled on Day Without a Woman

Vogue Magazine‏ tweeted: “If you’re a woke guy, here is how to get involved on March 8 without stepping on toes, or mansplaining activism.”  The tweet included a link to their article, “What Men Can Do To Support The Women’s Strike.”

The article includes a handy cheat sheet for busy woke fellas who don’t have time to read a whole article in Vogue magazine.

A Cheat Sheet for March 8—Ally Edition

  • Pick up the domestic slack: do the housework, feed the kids, babysit, prepare the meals, etc.
  • Organize a strike in your workplace; involve your union.
  • If you’re a student, join a walkout, participate in a convention or organized campus discussion on women’s and global rights, join a march.
  • Take a break from porn and do some soul-searching on what kind of pornography or sex work you support. Ask yourself, Am I contributing to the exploitation of sex workers?
  • Join protests, marches, go hear the speeches.
  • Spread awareness and make your support public. (Note: This does not mean post something to Twitter; do that, sure, but also talk to the people around you about what’s going on.)

Tweeters had their own pithy remarks to offer:

  • “Alright awful stupid guys with your awful penises, LISTEN UP. if you want to be HELPFUL”
  • “You may ride on the bus with us. But only if you sit at the back.”
  • Is woke the new word for whipped?
  • Vogue: You misspelled “emasculated.”
  • “Take a break from porn”?  Is “woke” the new word for “disgusting pig”?
  • A day without liberal feminists –  Hip, Hip Hooray!!!!
  • My purpose today is to step on toes and mansplain.
  • If you’re a woke guy, avoid feminists and feminism. They don’t represent real women.
  • REAL men don’t need to be told to help with the chores and they kids.  THEY ALREADY DO IT.
  • Vogue: You have 12.5 million followers, but most of yr tweets have zero responses, RTs in single digits. Better hope yr advertisers don’t notice.

Are Sundays part of Lent?

LENT

Interesting article here for us Catholics.

EXCERPTS:

Deciding to give up something during Lent at all is purely voluntary. You are free to set the conditions of your Lenten sacrifice. This means that if you decide to allow yourself to enjoy whatever it is you have given up for Lent on Sundays, you may do so. You don’t need anyone’s permission. Likewise, if you want to maintain your Lenten sacrifice straight through, with no break on Sundays, that is perfectly fine, as well. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ here.”

Also, “when a solemnity falls on a Friday during Lent (as sometimes happens with the Solemnity of St. Joseph on March 19) that abstinence is not customarily observed.”

Heal your gut! Heal your auto-immune disorder!

I’ve been recording my fermenting stuff in my “I ❤ Ferments” Facebook photo album.  Today, I updated the intro:

“November 2014: I started adding fermented foods to my diet in hopes of improving my very serious food and environmental allergies.  UPDATE: December 2014: I am already feeling so much better!!  UPDATE: January 2016: I ate an egg today with no problem!  UPDATE: March 2017 – For the past ten years, I have been too weak to walk from my house to the mailbox (about 40 feet). Today, I can walk a half a mile at a time.”

A Day Without Wimmins

Just what, exactly, is ‘A Day Without Women” supposed to be all about? Celebrating womanhood? Putting the producers in the spotlight? Frustrated hens griping that they don’t get laid enough? Wonder how many men are going to show up, claiming to feel their pain, when, in reality, they want to feel something else. Who’s participating in this ostentatious show of anger and frustration? Mostly government workers and union thugs wanting a day off. Never mind the tens of thousands of parents forced to scramble for childcare because so many teachers want to exercise their right to make asses of themselves.

Women’s Strike: ‘A Day Without Women’ Events Take Place Worldwide
The protest, coordinated in part by the same leaders of the January 21st Women’s March on Washington, aims to illustrate “the economic power and significance that women have on the U.S. and global economies,” according to the organizers.

More than 50 countries around the globe have events scheduled in Hong Kong, Bosnia, Senegal, Cambodia, Pakistan, Guatemala, and more, according to a Facebook event page for the International Women’s Strike. On a local level, nearly 400 separate rallies and marches are planned in cities and towns around the world.

WHAT? NO PROTESTS IN SAUDI ARABIA? IRAN? NORTH KOREA? …WTF?

Women’s March Strike Organized By Group With All-Male Leadership
Despite striking for equal opportunities for women in the workplace, the Women’s March is working with the Action Network, a group that does not have a single female in its leadership.

The Action Network is a Washington, D.C.-based “progressive online organizing platform” that is managing the website and email lists of the Women’s March. The group’s work is “specifically designed to help organizers channel scattered grassroots energy into something more focused,” Vox reported.

The Action Network has partnered with major progressive groups, including the AFL-CIO and National Education Association. The group touts its partnership with Indivisible, a group that provides a “practical guide for resisting the Trump agenda.”

The group manages lists of volunteers and supporters for the Town Hall Project, a protest group founded by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer that encourages people to show up at town halls and protest for progressive policies.

The Action Network promotes Women’s March events, posting maps to help activists locate marches in their area. It also has organized protests against Walmart.

On March 8, remember victims of #DayWithoutAWoman co-organizer Rasmea Odeh (#DayWithoutEdwardandLeon)

A Day Without Edward and Leon, just like every day since a bomb planted by Rasmea Odeh took their lives on February 21, 1969.
It was conceived by a small group of radicals, including convicted terrorist murderer Rasmea Odeh.

Rasmea was one of the first female military members of the Marxist terrorist group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

The evidence is overwhelming of Rasmea’s involvement in the February 21, 1969, bombing of the SuperSol supermarket in Jerusalem that killed two Hebrew University Students, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner.

Rasmea’s defense, that the only reason she was convicted was that she gave a false confession after 25 days of sexual torture by the Israelis, is demonstrably false.

In fact, Rasmea confessed in writing just one day (not 25 days) after arrest and there were multiple independent sources of evidence of her involvement, including bomb-making material found in her bedroom.



Rasmea also was convicted of the attempted bombing of the British Consulate.

The 1970 trial was extensive. Rasmea had independent legal counsel. A representative of the International Red Cross attended the trial, and stated afterwards that the trial was fair.

Rasmea was released in 1979 as part of a prisoner exchange for an Israeli soldier captured in Lebanon. From Lebanon Rasmea made her way to Jordan, and then obtained a visa to the U.S. in 1994.

On the visa application, Rasmea lied about ever having been convicted or imprisoned, and failed to disclose her time in Lebanon. In 2003 Rasmea lied again on her naturalization application, falsely denying having been imprisoned or convicted, or being a member of a terrorist group.

FINALLY! National Sorority Begins Accepting Dudes Who Pretend To Be Women

CROSSDRESSERS SHACKING UP IN A SORORITY…WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
“Members from all across the country have sought guidance about transgender women who’ve expressed interest in joining,” she then explains between frosty smiles.

“To stay relevant in today’s world, Alpha Chi must be inclusive of all who live and identity as women regardless of their gender assigned at birth.”

Not everyone associated with Alpha Chi Omega is happy about the decision. Some alumnae took to Facebook to express criticism.

Leslee Haylett  last Thursday. I am relieved to see that I am not alone in my disappointment in Alpha Chi Omega’s decision on gender diversity. We owe it to our current sisters and those to come in the future to protect them. This position does to meet that responsibility. It’s sad to see AXO falling into the trap of being PC instead of really thinking what this means. You may as well give up being a single gender fraternal organization. What is to stop a male (who considers himself a male) to join? You open the door to all now. I’m very sad. I was sad that my daughter never had the chance to join AXO. Now maybe I’m glad she can’t. I will be rethinking further foundation donations, as I’m sure other disappointed sisters will be doing as well.

VANNESS: How Many People Do You Have to Kill to Get Involved with the Women’s March?
LOVELY

Odeh is not the only one with a violent past. It appears that several of the speakers and organizers of these Women’s March activities are the ones with violent backgrounds.

One of the featured speakers at the Woman’s March was convicted felon Donna Hylton who, in 1985, along with several others, kidnapped 62-year-old real-estate broker Thomas Vigliarolo and tortured him to death.

Angela Davis was also a speaker at the March. Davis came to prominence in the 1960s as a leader of the Communist Party U.S.A. and the militant Black Panthers Party. She is best known for being the second black woman to make the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List for her role in a courtroom shootout that resulted in the death of Judge Harold Haley. She was later acquitted in a 1972 trial, despite having fled the country and her proven ownership of the guns involved in the murder.

One of the March’s principle organizers, Linda Sarsour, has a track record of both disturbing behavior and statements. Sarsour supports the discriminatory and terror-tied BDS Movement and has called for solidarity with Muhammad Allan, a member of the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad who helped recruit suicide bombers.

YOU’VE COME A LONG WAY, BABY
