As Long As I’m At It

There’s a plethora of other items of interest. After the last post I had to shower because I felt dirty talking about that… whatever the hell you call it with the fright wig on her head.

Trump to pull feds out of K-12 education
“For too long the government has imposed its will on state and local governments. The result has been education that spends more and achieves far, far, far less,” Mr. Trump said. “My administration has been working to reverse this federal power grab and give power back to families, cities [and] states — give power back to localities.”
He said that previous administrations had increasingly forced schools to comply with “whims and dictates” from Washington, but his administration would break the trend.

New York Times Editorial Board Begs Justice Kennedy Not to Retire
IT WAS KENNEDY WHO WAS THE DECIDING VOTE IN FAVOR OF GAY MARRIAGE BEING RECOGNIZED NATIONWIDE
Let us now join the New York Times Editorial Board as it performs its own version of Please, Please, Please! in Please Stay, Justice Kennedy. America Needs You.
Dear Justice Kennedy,
As you have no doubt heard, rumors of your impending retirement are, for the second year in a row, echoing around Washington and across America. While you and your colleagues on the Supreme Court were listening to the final oral arguments of the term in recent days, those rumors were only growing more insistent.
How can we put this the right way? Please don’t go.

Court upholds Texas’ law in another big voter ID ruling
IF THEY CAN’T CHEAT THEY CAN’T WIN
The revisions to Texas’ law were also supported by the U.S. Justice Department — a move that amounted to a complete reversal for the federal government, which under former President Barack Obama had joined minority rights groups in suing over the law. But two months after Donald Trump took office, the Justice Department abandoned the argument that Texas passed voter ID rules with discrimination in mind and said the changes should satisfy the courts.
Opponents bristled at the ruling but didn’t immediately indicate their next step.

Real Reason GOP Lawmakers Are Retiring? Mo Brooks Says Republicans Fear ‘Assassination Risk’
THIS STATEMENT IS NOT AS OUTRAGEOUS AS IT ONCE WOULD HAVE BEEN. ALL REPUBLICANS ARE TARGETS FOR VIOLENCE.
Brooks was speaking about the first congressional baseball practice Thursday, the first time the team had practiced at the Simpson field in Alexandria, Va., since the June attack that wounded six, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.
“You have to wonder with that kind of disproportionate retirement number whether what happened in June played a factor,” Brooks said.
“I don’t think any of these people who are retiring would say that, but just looking at the numbers,” Brooks said. “That’s out of whack.”

NYC Councilman Brags About “Chasing NRA Members Underground”

Trump: “We’re Not Going to be Played” by North Korea
“The United States has been played beautifully, like a fiddle, because you had a different kind of a leader,” Trump said. “We’re not going to be played. We’re going to hopefully make a deal, if we don’t, that’s fine . . . we leave the room,” he continued. “This isn’t like past administrations. We don’t play games.”

Donald Trump to speak at National Rifle Association annual meeting in Dallas
THIS ARTICLE IS FROM THE LEFT WING U.K. EXPRESS
The move from the Republican firebrand would come two months after he hinted guns should be taken away from dangerous persons without due process.
A White House spokesperson stated that the details of the event are still being finalised.
The NRA event comes just over two months after the Florida school shooting that reignited a debate on gun control in the US.
Following the devastating event, Mr Trump showed off proposals on school safety and gun restrictions.

Vice President Pence to Speak at the 2018 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum
THE LEFT IS MOCKING THE NRA FOR NOT ALLOWING FIREARMS DURING PENCE’S SPEECH
Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association (NRA) Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) today announced that Vice President Mike Pence will keynote the annual NRA-ILA Leadership Forum on Friday, May 4, in Dallas, Texas. The event kicks off the 2018 election cycle and will feature a powerful lineup of pro-freedom speakers.

David Hogg demands Mike Pence cancel NRA speech

THOUGHT YOU’D HEARD THE LAST OF THIS SNEERING LITTLE PUNK, DIDN’T YOU?
The tweet to Mr. Hogg’s 777,000 Twitter followers links to a petition that makes a similar demand of Nick Ayers, the vice president’s chief of staff. It was unclear whether the threat from Mr. Hogg’s followers would discourage the vice president from going to the Dallas meeting.
Mr. Hogg was able to use his Twitter-following last month to force dozens of companies to pull advertising from Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show after she taunted Mr. Hogg about his college rejections.
He was apparently much less successful in a later effort to sic his Twitter followers on investment banks who manage stock holdings in the company that makes Smith & Wesson handguns.

No, The NRA Is Not Banning Guns At Its Convention
Ban instituted by the Secret Service and covers only events attended by Secret Service protectees
Despite the knowledge that a growing number of Americans deem the media untrustworthy and consider much of what is reported as #FakeNews, the leftist and mainstream media just can’t seem to help themselves.
They are whipping themselves into a frenzy over an NRA flier and further exploiting the Parkland shooting in their attempt to create a sense of what they feverishly—and falsely—claim is the NRA’s hypocrisy.

US: Border Crossing at Capacity, Migrant Caravan Must Wait
50 people were allowed into the San Ysidro Port of Entry Sunday afternoon
THOUSANDS OF DEMOCRAT VOTERS EAGER TO STORM THE BORDER AND GRAB ALL THE FREE HANDOUTS
The migrants, who traveled in five old school buses, ate lunch Sunday before making a roughly 15-minute walk to San Diego’s San Ysidro border crossing, the nation’s busiest. Many are fleeing violence in their home countries and will ask the U.S. for asylum.
They reached the border last Tuesday and have been sleeping in tents and attending legal seminars given by volunteer attorneys.
