Professor Potty Mouth teaches Gender Studies. What a surprise. NOT.

From Allen West: “With the whole world watching the tragic loss of life and property in Texas, CNN corespondent Drew Griffin decided to play the role of hero and assist in the saving of a man in distress, which on the surface is certainly worthy of applause.”
When I saw the clip, I thought it was a bit much when the guy thanked them for “saving my life.” But it gets worse. A sharp-eyed tweeter noticed that the “heroic” talking head apparently took the time to CHANGE HIS CLOTHES in the middle of the so-called rescue. When he first runs behind the wheelchair sign, you can see he’s wearing the red hoodie with shorts and sandals. But later, he’s wearing black pants.
PRAYERS! Prayer is so important. Hurricane Irma is in the ocean now. Please pray it dies out or redirects and doesn’t hit Texas, Louisiana, or Haiti!!
I need a tissue! Maybe I’m just being whelmed by the fact that my own flesh and blood was involved in this rescue. Or maybe it really is a story you’ll be glad you took the time to read in full. The thumbnails on the top right go to the rest of the photos Capt Nigrelle took of the rescue of a paralyzed man and his wife that ultimately involved Texas National Guard soldiers, Texas Task Force 1 and Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Service swift water rescue technicians, the U.S. Coast Guard, and local volunteers.
BE CAREFUL HOW YOU DONATE TO HARVEY RELIEF! Anti-Israel, Sharia law loving activist Linda Sarsour sparked outrage after she asked her followers on Twitter to donate to help Hurricane Harvey victims, but the link takes you to a political activist group.
I’ll attach more in comments if I see anything interesting, but too short to make a whole blog about.
I wrote a real nice post on general subjects yesterday, and when I hit the “post” button, the gods of WordPress must have been hungry because they ate it. Gone. Never to be seen again. Even the all-seeing, all-knowing Bluebird couldn’t find it. Hopefully the beast’s hunger has been sated and this one will survive.
Being the most intelligent people on the planet, the readers of this blog know that DACA stands for ‘Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,’ or DREAM act for those less informed. This was another dirty trick by the mulatto asshat known as Barack Obama. It continued his streak of never doing anything that had a positive benefit for the country, only harming it.
Loophole Allowed Over A Thousand DACA Recipients To Receive Citizenship
THIS WAS A BLATANT ATTEMPT AT LEGALIZING AS MANY ILLEGALS AS HE COULD… MORE VOTERS, MORE DEMOCRATS
The figures released indicate that 2,181 DACA recepients that have received green cards have applied for citizenship and 1,056 of these have successfully become citizens.
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was started by former President Barack Obama in 2012 and has protected roughly 800,000 illegal immigrants from deportation and granted them work permits. Trump vowed on the campaign trail to end the program and will make an announcement Tuesday on DACA’s future.
The Dreamers were all part of DACA, the legally questionable amnesty program that’s under scrutiny right now as President Trump decides whether to scrap the Obama-era amnesty.
The House and Senate Judiciary Committees revealed that more than 45,000 DACA recipients were approved for “advance parole,” which is permission to leave and reenter the U.S. despite not being in permanent legal status here.
But under a quirk of law, those granted advance parole can then ask to adjust their status and gain legal residence — and eventually citizenship — as long as they have a qualifying relationship.
The Obama administration had seemed intent on keeping the data secret, refusing to answer requests from Congress. The Trump administration complied.
Flashback: Paul Ryan Says DREAMER Executive Amnesty Is “Unconstitutional” in 2014… Now He’s Pushing It
SADLY, THIS BACKSTABBING PRICK IS HERE TO STAY
But that was in 2014.
Today Paul Ryan is pushing executive amnesty for young illegal aliens.
House Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday gave a major boost to legislative efforts to preserve protections for young undocumented immigrants — and urged President Donald Trump to not tear up the program.
I actually don’t think he should do that,” Ryan said of Trump’s consideration of terminating the program. “I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix.”
DACA immigrants terrified as President Trump decides their fate
A short time later, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the announcement would come Tuesday.
That leaves DACA enrollees terrified heading into what should have been an enjoyable Labor Day weekend.
“Many of us are having that moment where our life is flashing before our eyes,” said Dhalla, a communications associate at FWD.us, an advocacy group founded by technology leaders that include Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates. “I’m leaving tomorrow to go to Kentucky to my best friend’s wedding. Is this the last wedding in the United States I’ll get to go to?”
White House Now Says Trump’s DACA Decision Is Coming Tuesday
Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday afternoon that President Donald Trump would announce his decision concerning the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) on Tuesday, Sept. 5 — the deadline that 10 Republican attorneys general set for Trump before they promised to sue the government to end the program
Reporters Lobby WH’s Sanders on Behalf of DREAMers, Question Whether He Has a ‘Big Heart’
For Friday’s White House press briefing, reporters decided to play the role of lobbyists standing up for illegal immigrants known as DREAMers ahead of President Trump’s decision about whether to end the program.
Reporters from a variety of outlets took it upon themselves to inquire about whether DREAMers are real Americans and question the President’s compassion for others seeing as how, if he decided to end it, droves of people could be “sen[t]…out of the country.”
THEY ASKED HER THE SAME QUESTION OVER… AND OVER… AND OVER
About those “massive job losses” if DACA ends
The staggering numbers on display are sure to send a shock wave through the nation’s economy because a new “report” projects that the end of DACA would result in job losses in excess of the population of some smaller island nations.
Holy Guacamole, Batman! 700K jobs lost? An additional 30K per month after that? Almost half a trillion in lost economic output? Why, that’s pretty much the entry point to a new great recession. Except that you need to consider both the source of this “report” and what it is that they’re actually talking about.
First of all, Fortune is citing a paper from the Center for American Progress, which is essentially an unofficial arm of the Democratic National Committee. It was founded by John Podesta and the front page of their web site is nothing but one article after another about how horrible Trump is and why the Social Justice Warriors should just be allowed to reorganize society as they please.
Tucker Carlson shreds GOP supporters of DACA: ‘Their campaign pledges were lies’
“Almost ten months into the Republican Congress, top Republicans on Capitol Hill have finally found an issue they can really rally around: preserving President Obama‘s immigration policies,” Carlson began his monologue on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Friday.
Carlson called out Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, South Carolina’s Sen. Lindsey Graham and Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado for their attempts to preserve the program. He specifically called attention to North Carolina’s Sen. Thom Tillis who is crafting amnesty legislation that is a “conservative alternative” to DACA, reportedly giving “2.5 million illegal immigrants a pathway to citizenship.”

MENLO PARK, CA—Fake news has finally met its match in Mark Zuckerberg. The Facebook CEO announced Monday that his wildly successful social network will now “promptly and automatically” fly an MQ-1 Predator drone to the location of anyone who posts or shares an article that has been deemed “fake news,” and will obliterate the person with a Hellfire missile.
But that’s not all: the internet titan also revealed that the drone strikes can be unleashed by Facebook users upon anyone they disagree with.
That’s right. Just flag an item as “offensive” or “I don’t want to see this,” and Zuckerberg will honor his promise to blow your ideological enemy sky-high with a totally devastating and pinpoint accurate air-to-ground missile.
But don’t worry, brave social justice warriors: this feature is only enabled for those Facebook has identified as progressives, so you’ll be able to rid the world of your political foes while you’re safe in your own little Portland bungalow. You can now truly make the world a better place through your online battles!
Thanks to Mark Zuckerberg, it looks like it’s R.I.P. fake news!
