MTV TRYING TO RECRUIT TRANSGENDER SOLDIERS FOR MTV MUSIC AWARDS

News broke in July that MTV’s iconic “Moon Man” would henceforth be referred to as a “Moon Person” as a sign of respect for the transgender community. The network plans to expand on that theme with transgender service members on Aug. 27 in Inglewood, California — if Pentagon officials approve.

The Ninth Circuit Just Ruled Coaches Can be Punished For Praying on a Football Field
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, arguably the most liberal and misguided federal court in the country, has issued a ruling that justifies the punishment of coaches for praying on public school football fields. The big reason? Because parents and teachers can see them doing so and therefore it’s a violation not protected under the U.S. Constitution.

Affirmative Action Has Failed. It Never Had a Chance to SucceedAfter decades of affirmative action, billions of dollars invested in finding, mentoring, and recruiting minority students, and extraordinary levels of effort and experimentation, black and Hispanic students are “more underrepresented at the nation’s top colleges and universities than they were 35 years ago” (emphasis added). White and Asian students, on the other hand, remain overrepresented as a percentage of the population, with Asian students most overrepresented of all.
And when it comes to college admissions, the problem isn’t a lack of collegiate demand for qualified minority students but rather a serious deficiency in supply. There are simply not enough students who are ready, willing, and able to do the work.

‘Well-oiled’ activist ops targeting GOP reps at their homes, hijacking town halls
The targets say the whole operation is part of a one-two punch orchestrated from the top, in which left-wing groups throw their first punch by rounding up activists and training them to be as disruptive as possible during representatives’ town halls.
Then, when lawmakers stop holding those events, the groups throw their second punch by protesting at their homes.
“This is a well-oiled, very much activist plan to disrupt the democratic process,” Lewis said.

Source: Kasich, Hickenlooper consider unity presidential ticket in 2020

Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper have entertained the idea of forming a unity presidential ticket to run for the White House in 2020, a source involved in the discussions tells CNN.
Under this scenario, Kasich, a Republican, and Hickenlooper, a Democrat, would run as independents with Kasich at the top of the ticket, said the source, who cautioned it has only been casually talked about.

    25th Amendment attacks on Trump are “HOOEY” say Howard Dean and Jonathan Turley
    “The Constitution’s designed not to” allow impulsive removals of presidents

    On today’s Morning Joe, after accusing President Trump of “impairment,” Howard Dean said that “people keep talking about” the 25th Amendment as a means to remove the president from office. But Dean immediately poured cold water on the notion, saying “I personally think that’s probably hooey.”

    Law professor Jonathan Turley agreed with Dean: “Yes, indeed, that falls under the constitutional doctrine of hooey.” Turley went on to describe the complicated procedures under the 25th Amendment, which would ultimately require a two-thirds majority in both houses of congress. Concluded Turley: “the 25th Amendment is not a really good option.”

    Turley, while no conservative, has a history of breaking sad news to liberals, as when he concluded that there was no case for obstruction or treason against President Trump.

    Baltimore prosecutor: Fighting crime is really hard, you guys

    THEY THREW $6.5 MILLION AT POOR,DEAD FREDDIE GRAY’S FAMILY BEFORE ALL SIX POLICE OFFICERS WERE FOUND NOT GUILTY.SO MOSBY’S GOT THAT GOING FOR HER.
    The Baltimore Sun conducted an extensive interview this week with State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and Police Commissioner Kevin Davis, in which they put the tough questions to these law enforcement leaders. Mosby is best known for her embarrassing, abject failure in the Freddie Gray police trials. Davis took over as Police Commissioner in the wake of the riots and has been kept on after the new mayor, Catherine Pugh, took office.
    Years ago, the city had tamped down on the violence and brought the homicides down to less than 200 in a year by using “heavy handed police tactics” that are now frowned upon, the two noted in the interview.

    “There was a price to pay…that manifested itself in April and May of 2015,” Davis said, alluding to the Baltimore riots over Freddie Gray. “I think the long view is that doing it the right way is doing it the hard way, and I think most Baltimoreans realize that the way forward is not always going to be easy.”

    Wolf Blitzer Allows Dem Guest to Compare Trump Tactics to Nazi Germany
    This is the second time in a little over a week Wolf Blitzer has stood by silently and let someone rant about Trump being like Hitler.

    Last week, Democrat James Clyburn compared Trump’s election to Hitler being elected Chancellor of Germany. Wolf didn’t utter a peep. He has no problem with the comparison.

    Govt. union rep: Employees only have to be “available to work” to get paid

    The head of the Treasury has been made aware of problems at the Patent and Trademark Office. Over there, a number of workers were found to be falsifying their time reporting, billing the government for hundreds of thousands of dollars for time not worked. In some of the most severe cases, workers put in two hours of time, then had the audacity to charge the government for a full day plus two hours of overtime.
