How Low Can You Go?

Kathy Griffin, the unfunny, foul-mouthed waste of time who calls herself a “comedian,” whose act has degenerated into bashing republicans, Christianity, and straight white people has made a successful attempt to get people to notice her again. What she did was completely disgusting, as much of what passes as “art” these days is. Of course, absolutely nothing will come of it. Most leftists see nothing wrong with what she did. Had anyone held a likeness of a beheaded Barack Obama, his Justice Department would have them immediately jailed. What she did was just another effort by the left to slither even lower in the cesspool of “I hate Trump more than you do.”

Kathy Griffin Beheads Donald Trump in Bloody Shock Photo

Griffin has been an outspoken critic of the president; in October, the comedian and television personality cut a mock campaign advertisement which featured her repeatedly telling the then-Republican presidential candidate to “f*ck off.”

FROM 2007:
EMMY WINNER KATHY GRIFFIN: “SUCK IT, JESUS, THIS AWARD IS MY GOD NOW”

On September 8, at the 59th Annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards, comedian Kathy Griffin won Outstanding Reality Program for her Bravo show, “My Life on the D-List.” In her acceptance speech, Griffin said, “Suck it, Jesus, this award is my God now.” Fox will televise the Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 16 from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

In an interview with Houston’s gay magazine, OutSmart, Griffin described herself as a ‘complete militant atheist.’ Unfortunately, her kind of vulgar in-your-face brand of hate speech found a receptive audience on Saturday: The Hollywood Reporter says her foul remark ‘drew laughs

Kathy Griffin: Democratic Politicians Take Her Donations, Silent About Video
Franken and Griffin will also hold “an intimate discussion about Franken’s new book ‘Giant of the Senate’” on July 7 at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills.

Breitbart asked press aides for both Democratic politicians if the Senators were planning to return the funds donated by Griffin. Neither office has responded to Breitbart.

The Beverly Hills center did not respond to a question about canceling the July 7 event.

Griffin has also done a voter registration video for the House Democrats’ Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. She also volunteered to do 2016 voter-turnout videos to help Hillary Clinton.

SHE HAD A CHANGE OF HEART WHEN THE SECRET SERVICE BEGAN INVESTIGATING… FUNNY HOW THAT HAPPENS

But later in the evening, the Secret Service issued a statement — which did not cite the controversy, but was issued in response to it — which read, “The U.S. Secret Service has a critical mission. It is always unfortunate when people make statements that could be perceived as threats. We don’t have the luxury of knowing a person’s intent. Each alleged or perceived threat has to be investigated thoroughly which taxes Secret Service manpower and resources that could be utilized elsewhere.”

Kathy Griffin apologizes for beheaded Trump photo: ‘I crossed the line’
“I sincerely apologize,” the comedienne said in a 30-second video posted to her Twitter account. She said she “crossed the line” and is “just now” seeing the outpouring of negative reactions to the photo,” adding “The image is too disturbing.”
Griffin also said she is taking down the image and asked the photographer to do the same.  The photographer, Tyler Shields, defended the photo shoot was a work of “art.”

[CtH: I remember them having a very different reaction about “art” and “comedy” when a rodeo comedian did some schtick wearing an Obama mask. Never mind that the same guy he had done the same schtick in a Bush mask when Bush was president and they were fine with that. Freakin’ hypocrites.]

OF COURSE, THE LEFT’S REACTION WHEN SOMETHING BLOWS UP ON THEM IS ‘MOVE ON’

CNN Panel: ‘I Think We’ve Got Much Bigger Issues to Focus on Than Kathy Griffin’

[CtH: Funny how that goes.  When it was Sarah Palin’s clothes and trash (the literal kind you put on the curb for pick up), they had 11 reporters committed to it.]

Kathy Griffin’s Offensive Trump Photo And The Fox News Snowflakes

Braying and punishingly obvious, she specializes in unfunny comedy that tries to trade on the insult humor of comics such as Joan Rivers and Don Rickles — minus any actually amusing content. You’re better off not taking her bait. But Fox News fell for it, hook, line, and sinker.

On Tuesday morning, they were almost weeping with outrage and sorrow on Fox and Friends. You can’t fool co-host Ainsley Earhardt: “Someone had to buy that head,” she said, yelping, “They knew what they were doing!”

“What is wrong with our country?” said Earhardt, thus suggesting that the blight that is Kathy Griffin is a metaphor for the entire United States writ large. Earhardt added, “We’ll be talking about it all morning.” Of course you will.

On Monday night, Fox’s The Five led off its show with the Griffin stunt. Panelist Greg Gutfeld began with the smart angle, observing, “If we get mad, [Griffin] wins.” But then — duh — the rest of the gang of five proceeded to… get mad!

“This is so horribly offensive, it’s horrible!” said Kimberly Guilfoyle, adding, “I’m never gonna forget about it.”

Dana Perino asserted that “this sets back the Left’s agenda” — because, you know, the American left wing takes its marching orders from Kathy Griffin. On Tucker Carlson Tonight, the host welcomed Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe, who said of Griffin’s photo, “I am very outraged!”

Donald Trump Calls Kathy Griffin ‘Sick’ In Response To Controversial Image

Donald Trump took to Twitter Wednesday morning to respond to Kathy Griffin’s controversial photo, which went viral Tuesday.

“Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself,” the president wrote. “My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!”

Krauthammer: Griffin’s Trump Photo ‘A D-List Comedian Trying to Get Attention’

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report with Bret Baier,” columnist and Fox News Contributor Charles Krauthammer characterized comedian Kathy Griffin’s photo depicting her holding the severed head of President Trump as “political pornography from a D-list comedian trying to get attention, and she has succeeded.”

Krauthammer added that he would leave the decision to let Griffin stay as one of the hosts of CNN’s New Year’s coverage up to “the mavens at CNN.” He also stated that he could assure that he wouldn’t watch CNN on New Year’s either way.

A President with Compassion

What a difference a year makes. The past eight years, military families have been used as props by a president who once famously remarked that soldiers made “good photo ops.” His appearances to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns betrayed his contempt for the people he was there to honor. He would spit out empty, hollow, meaningless words some thirty-something kid had written for him, and then retreat to his beloved golf course, something that was really important to him.

What a relief it must have been for the Gold Star families who came to Arlington yesterday to be consoled by a man who truly respects the sacrifice they and their loved ones have made to keep us free.

President Trump delivered his first Memorial Day address on Monday
He placed a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery
He hailed ‘Gold Star’ families and mentioned service members who gave their lives
He called on Americans to remember them ‘today, and for the next one thousand years’
Among those he mentioned was the late son of Homeland Security Secretary Gen. John Kelly
He also mentioned a fallen Army specialist and a Green Beret major who risked his life for others
‘Here at this hallowed shrine we honor the noblest among us – the men and the women who paid the ultimate price for victory and for freedom,’ Trump told a crowd of families, military personnel, and dignitaries at Arlington on Monday in his first Memorial Day speech as president.

‘We pay tribute to those brave souls who raced into gunfire, roared into battle and ran into hell to face down evil. They made their sacrifice not for fame or for money or even for glory, but for country,’ Trump said.

‘They died in war, so that we could live in peace,’ he added.

Trump Visits With Moms Of Fallen Soldiers At Arlington

President Trump took a detour during his trip to Arlington National Cemetery in order to visit the graves of those Americans lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Trump took a walk over to Section 60, which is dedicated to those who gave their lives in service from 2001 to the present.

I HAVE STATED BEFORE THAT THE LEFT DESPISES THE MILITARY BECAUSE THEY CANNOT UNDERSTAND ANYBODY CARING SO DEEPLY ABOUT THEIR COUNTRY THAT THEY WOULD SACRIFICE ALL TO PROTECT AND DEFEND IT. THEIR ATTITUDE RUNS FROM TEPID INDIFFERENCE TO OVERT HOSTILITY.

On Memorial Day, Leftist Site Smears Marines As Having ‘Toxic Masculinity Problem’

Left-wing website Vox attacked the Marine Corps for its “toxic masculinity problem” on Memorial Day, the national holiday dedicated to honoring the American men and women who died serving their country in the armed forces.

The liberal website, a personal favorite of Barack Obama with a reputation for butchering simple facts, claimed the Marine Corps has a “well-earned reputation for being a fraternity that often marginalizes or mistreats female troops.”

The author, Vox staff writer Alex Ward, does not appear to be a military veteran, although his current Twitter profile picture does show him drinking a very masculine-looking glass of lemon water.

The liberal writer claimed that the Corps’ recent nude photo sharing scandal is proof that Marines have a “toxic masculinity problem.” Daily Caller News Foundation editor Geoffrey Ingersoll, a Marine Corps veteran, previously wrote a piece explaining why he finds that line of reasoning to be worthless. In Ingersoll’s words: “the most ‘toxic’ ​​thing about ‘​masculinity’ in the Corps is the kind of metal used to kill radical Islamic terrorists.”

“Jim Mattis, current secretary of defense and the most revered Marine in modern history, once told me he didn’t mind killing the ‘kind of scum’ that won’t allow ‘young girls to read,’” Ingersoll noted.

Memorial Day Remembrances

A lot of people today will be wishing each other “Happy Memorial Day.” The purpose of the day is not to be happy. It is for reflection and gratitude for those who gave all they had so we can enjoy all we have. Somewhere down the line that meaning became buried in cookouts and used car sales. So few of us take the time to visit the grave of a loved one who was a veteran or consider how selfless these amazing people were.


Allison Jaslow heard it more than once as the long holiday weekend approached — a cheerful “Happy Memorial Day!” from oblivious well-wishers.

The former Army captain and Iraq War veteran had a ready reply, telling them, matter-of-factly, that she considered it a work weekend. Jaslow will be at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday to take part in the annual wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. She’ll then visit Section 60, the final resting place of many service members who died in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“You can see it in people’s faces that they’re a little horrified that they forget this is what the day’s about,” said Jaslow, 34, who wears a bracelet bearing the name of a fallen comrade. “Culturally, we’ve kind of lost sight of what the day’s supposed to mean.”

While millions of Americans celebrate the long Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial start of summer — think beaches and backyard barbecues, mattress sales and sporting events — some veterans and loved ones of fallen military members wish the holiday that honors more than 1 million people who died serving their country would command more respect.

“There are a lot of things working against this particular holiday,” said Brian Duffy, commander in chief of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

“It hurts,” Duffy said. For combat veterans and Gold Star families especially, “it hurts that, as a society, we don’t truly understand and appreciate what the true meaning of Memorial Day is.”

Memorial Day in a Divided Nation

It is important to honor our wartime dead. But Memorial Day has a powerful meaning that we have forgotten. It was the holiday that reunited our country after the Civil War. It began when Americans, from the North and the South, entered the cold gray stone fields of the dead, and decorated the graves of the fallen from the Grand Army of the Republic and the Confederacy with freshly cut flowers.

They followed no presidential order. They acted under no regulation. Instead the mothers and wives of men who would return home no more brought flowers to the graves of their fallen sons and husbands, and to the resting places of the young American men who might have slain them, who had been the enemy, but who still deserved honor and respect.

Those women, of the North and the South, brought America together.

Today a new breed of leftists gleefully tears down Confederate memorials. And it will not end with flags and statues. They will not be satisfied until the cemeteries that were once decorated have been desecrated. It is ominously fitting that the event which marked the end of one civil war now arrives to foreshadow the beginning of another war between brothers

Like the American Revolution, the aftermath of the Civil War was indeed a unique achievement. It is now vanishing before our eyes. And Memorial Day has become a sad reminder of its diminution.

CONSIDER, IF YOU WILL, OUR LAST TWO SECRETARIES OF STATE: ONE WAS A GREEDY, POWER-OBSESSED SOULLESS CREATURE WHO IS COMPLETELY CORRUPT TO THE CORE. THE OTHER MADE A COMPLETE SHAM OF THE WAR IN VIETNAM “BECAUSE IT WOULD LOOK GOOD ON HIS POLITICAL RESUME.” HE THEN CAME BACK AND COMMITTED ACTS OF TREASON TO BETRAY THOSE WHO FOUGHT BRAVELY, THINKING OF NOTHING BUT HIS OWN PERSONAL AGGRANDIZEMENT.

NOW COMES A REAL COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF WHO IS WORTHY OF THOSE WHO SERVE.
HIS SECRETARY OF STATE JOINED THE THOUSANDS OF BIKE-RIDING PATRIOTS WHO ROARED THROUGH WASHINGTON KNOWN AS ‘ROLLING THUNDER.’

Trump Recognizes Those Who Gave All On Memorial Day, Will Be At Arlington

Tribute for Memorial Day (Impossible Dream)

STAFF SERGEANT RECKLESS WAS AN AMAZING ANIMAL
This is the story of Sgt. Reckless – a Mongolian mare purchased by a Marine Corps lieutenant for $250 during the Korean War.

One of Reckless’ finest hours came during the Battle of Outpost Vegas in March of 1953. During this five-day battle, 28 tons of bombs and hundreds of the largest shells turned the crest of Vegas into a smoking, death-pocked rubble. And Reckless was in the middle of all of it.

On one day alone she made 51 trips from the Ammunition Supply Point to the firing sites, 95% of the time by herself. She carried almost five tons, walked over 35 miles through open rice paddies and up steep mountains with enemy fire coming in at the rate of 500 rounds per minute. And as she so often did, she would carry wounded Marines down the mountain to safety, unload them, get reloaded with ammo, and off she would go back up to the guns. She also provided a shield for several Marines who were trapped trying to make their way up to the front line. Wounded twice, she didn’t let that stop or slow her down.

Sgt Reckless Memorial Unveiled

Sunday Musings

Just a few things to mull over in the middle of a long weekend.

Trump’s first foreign trip was a huge success

He was clear, concise and disciplined. Those were the key ingredients that created a striking success for President Trump in his first foreign trip.

If he can bottle that recipe and start each day in the Oval Office with a big gulp of it, his presidency gets a renewed chance to live up to its promises.
One priceless moment came as he stood in the $1.4 billion new NATO building in Brussels and referred to American taxpayers running out of patience with the alliance’s deadbeats. The incident no doubt cheered his supporters at home as much as it rankled the European elites, most of whom regard taxpayers as suitable only for fleecing, especially when they are American.

But now Trump comes home to the swamp, and the test of whether he can drain it before it swallows him. In some ways, he took the swamp with him.

THESE KIDS MUST HAVE BEEN THRILLED

New York Democratic Activist Arrested on Child Pornography Charges
One child was only 6 MONTHS OLD
The NYPD Computer Crimes division began an investigation in March and Schwartz surrendered his computer. The detectives “found more than 3,000 images and 89 videos depicting girls as young as 6 months old performing sex acts on adult men.”

THIS PIECE OF FILTH WORKED FOR MAYOR COMMIEPINKOFAG

WHO THE HELL ARE THESE “MOTHERS” WHO OFFER 6 MONTH OLD BABIES FOR ABUSE???
CRACK WHORES WHO WILL SELL THEIR KIDS FOR A FEW ROCKS TO GET HIGH AND COLLECT THE TAX CREDIT ON.

Schwartz was charged with two felonies, promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing a sexual performance by a child under 16.
He was released on $7,500 bail.
$7500? ARE YOU KIDDING ME????
But now, Democrat groups are scrubbing his pictures from their sites while Democrats on Twitter are doing the same.
Hi @sarahaudelo, why did you delete the picture of Clinton manager @RobbyMook and child pornographer Jacob Schwartz?
Schwartz’s father — labor lawyer and Democratic insider Arthur Schwartz — called his son’s case “a personal tragedy.”

“I understand these are serious charges,” said the elder Schwartz, who watched his son get arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on Thursday night.

“He’s already in therapy for this.”
Ever notice how lefties don’t commit crimes, they have “personal tragedies,” and they should be able to do therapy instead of jail time?

Judge Lets Clinton Off Hook, Tosses Lawsuit Filed By Benghazi Families THE LEFT HAS AN ARMY OF ‘PROGRESSIVE’ JUDGES TO SAVE THEIR ASSES
“The untimely death of plaintiffs’ sons is tragic, and the Court does not mean to minimize the unspeakable loss that plaintiffs have suffered in any way,” U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington wrote in a 29-page opinion released Friday. But Berman said legal standards required the case to be dismissed.

Hillary’s friends say she’s seething with rage & haunted by losing to someone she considers a soulless manipulator.

Brandon J. Whisenant, Jr.’s body was found Wednesday by a random individual. The police are attempting to determine if Whisenant’s death was a “homicide, suicide, or something else.”

President Trump Shuns Press Conference, Celebrates Successful Foreign Trip With American TroopsTHAT MUST HAVE PISSED OFF THE MEDIA WHORES WHO WERE DYING TO TEAR INTO HIM
President Donald Trump ignored the custom of holding a press conference to conclude his trip abroad, choosing, instead, to celebrate his successful trip with a speech to the troops.
Trump indicated that his biggest goal of the trip was to rally the world against radical Islamic terrorism.

“We traveled the world to form a partnership among nations devoted to the tasks of eradicating terrorism that plagues our planet,” he said.

Trump Admin to Block Cities from Providing Sanctuary for Illegal Aliens

Otherwise known as following the law.

Up to now, local police departments have been banning its officers from getting specific information about a suspect’s immigration status and then releasing potential law breakers back on the streets before federal immigration has a chance to look over their files.

One opponent of the budget is San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera who represents a sanctuary city. He complains the proposal is unconstitutional.

“Once again, this administration has demonstrated why they can’t be trusted,” Herrera said. “They are trying to sneak major changes in the law through the back door because they cannot get them through the front. These proposed changes would fly in the face of the Constitution.”

Some things belong to Caesar

2017_05 25 Trump honored by pope visit

Stephen P. White writes at the Washington Examiner:

Jesus instructed the Pharisees: “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

This is often taken as a warning to rulers who would usurp the things of God and to Christians who would worship political idols.

But it’s also an important reminder that politics deserves its proper autonomy; some things do in fact belong to Caesar.

So, while I applaud the insistence that our faith should inform our politics, none of us should expect the teachings of the faith to do the work of politics for us. The Beatitudes aren’t policy prescriptions.
