You May Have Already Heard About This

The Academy Awards Hug-A-Thon and Trump Bashing Show aired last night. Interspersed among the preening and self-congratulations there were bitter, sarcastic diatribes against the man who won an election by appealing to people who have never been or ever will be a part of the Hollywood stuffed shirts.

Kimmel Trashes Trump

Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel predictably trashed President Trump. He said the Oscars were being watched in more than 225 countries that now hate the U.S.

[CtH: Maybe, maybe not.  The show hit a 9 year ratings low.]

He called on the star-studded crowd to give a ‘highly overrated’ Meryl Streep a standing ovation before joking about her dress, saying ‘by the way, is that an Ivanka?’

And he said Trump would later tweet about all of the Oscar winner’s acceptance speeches ‘in all caps’, then tweeted: ‘Hey @realDonaldTrump u up?’

Italian make up artist Alessandro Bertolazzi dedicated his Oscar win to ‘all the immigrants’

Moonlight director Barry Jenkins said people who don’t feel like they have support can look to the American Civil Liberties Union and artists over the next four years.

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who won an Oscar for his film The Salesman, issued a statement saying he was not present out of ‘respect for the people of my country’ who have been banned from entering the U.S.

[CtH: Hey, schmuck, how about respecting the American men and women who served, sweated, suffered, and died to free you from Saddam Hussein and help you set up a democratic government for the first time in your sorry history.]


Moonlight director Barry Jenkins said in accepting the Oscar for adapted screenplay that people who don’t feel like they have support can look to the American Civil Liberties Union and artists over the next four years

CARE TO GUESS WHY ‘MOONLIGHT’ WON? REMEMBER THE #OSCARS SO WHITE LAST YEAR?… THERE YOU GO.

Oscars shots are pure gold for Donald Trump: Hollywood elites’ snark bolsters prez
Before the best picture gaffe stole the show last night, Hollywood took some shots at President Trump during the Academy Awards, a chorus political strategists say plays right into the president’s hands and solidifies his status as the antithesis of liberal elites.

GOP strategist Ford O’Connell said the Americans who put Trump in the White House would likely be put off by quips at the commander in chief.

“Any time Hollywood liberals politically grandstand it helps the president,” O’Connell said. “Ordinary Americans have never been to Tinseltown, and their concerns revolve around making rent and paying college loans, not virtue signaling for the sake of standing on a red carpet.”

Jimmy Kimmel Disses Trump, Praises Meryl Streep & More In Opening Monologue At 2017 Oscars

THIS IS WHAT EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT:

Warren Beatty Opens Up About Oscar Blunder: It Wasn’t Our Fault
Walking past the backstage area at the Dolby Theatre en route to the Governors Ball, Beatty, 79, told a small group of reporters, “I don’t know anything … I don’t think anyone knows. I’ve asked and I haven’t got an answer.”

According to People, Beatty added: “I read the card that was in the envelope. I read it but I didn’t say La La Land. I thought, ‘This is very strange because it says Best Actress on the card.’ And I felt that maybe there was some sort of misprint.

Steve Harvey has hilarious response to Warren Beatty’s Oscars flub

ABC Praises Kimmel for ‘Setting Tone’ With ‘Very Funny’ Anti-Trump Jokes at Oscars
ABC then played several sound bites of host Jimmy Kimmel’s anti-Trump jokes, which mocked Trump for being racist, petty, and causing the rest of the world to “hate us.” ABC also touted celebrities’ political speeches against the immigration ban and pins supporting liberal causes like the ACLU. Llamas even noting how many retweets Kimmel’s anti-Trump tweets received.

[CtH: This is “news”?  And these people COMPLAIN that Trump doesn’t treat them nicely?]

LLAMAS: Kimmel even tweeting at the president first asking, ‘Hey, real Donald Trump, you up?’ Then ‘#MerylSaysHi’ both retweeting half a million times and counting the first becoming Kimmel’s most retweeted ever just after 15 minutes.

Fists Fly: Trump Supporters Not Backing Down To A Bunch of Hollywood Libs At the Oscars

The first woman tries to tear up a Trump sign and they starts throwing punches, she gets arrested.

I’D HAVE KNOCKED THE LITTLE BITCH ON HER ASS

Jordan Peele’s ‘Get Out’ mixes horror and comedy: movie review

THIS MOVIE GROSSED $30M/ I GUESS A BLACK DUDE BOINKING A WHITE GIRL AND MURDERING HER WHOLE FAMILY IS HILARIOUS
The story kicks off when Rose (Allison Williams) invites her boyfriend Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) to take a drive out of town and meet her parents. He’s a little cautious. Did she inform them that he is black? She hasn’t, but swears that Mom and Dad (Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford) are perfectly open-minded, Obama-supporting progressives. Nothing to worry about.
Initial awkward conversations (like a family friend boasting that he once golfed “with Tiger”) soon turn sinister. Just why is everyone behaving so strangely, especially the African-American groundskeeper and maid?

Same as the Old Boss

The Democratic party chose their new leader yesterday. The white-hating, Clinton- and Obama-backed, communist candidate, Tom Perez, defeated the Jew-hating, Sanders-, Schumer- and Black Lives Matter-backed, Muslim candidate, Keith Ellison.  Perez’ first act as DNC Chair was to suck up to the Muslim Ellison and make him his co-chair.

Liberal activists, new DNC chief face a Trump-era reckoning

“We don’t have the luxury of walking out of this room divided,” Ellison said over the jeers. Afterward, he told reporters he trusts Perez and that the burgeoning resistance movement aimed at President Donald Trump should do the same.

“We suffer from a crisis of confidence … a crisis of relevance,” Perez told DNC members ahead of his election.

JUST MINUTES AFTER NEW DNC CHAIR CHOSEN…Wikileaks Exposes Him For Political Wrongdoing
Thank you, Wikileaks! Just 18 minutes after a new DNC chair was chosen, Wikileaks tweeted out a link to emails exposing Tom Perez for sabotaging Bernie Sanders during the 2016 campaign. Bernie Sanders supporters took to twitter to protest with the hashtag #Demexit :

Perez is a total scumbag! We have so much information on this La Raza pro-illegal former Obama Labor Secretary.

Tom Perez: ‘White People NOT Entitled to Protection Under Voting Rights Act’
Tom Perez Has A Strong History Of Racism

New DNC Chair, Tom Perez, fits right in with the values of the Democratic party, especially when it comes to victimizing minorities and labeling white people as privileged.

An investigation into Perez revealed extreme views he holds according to A Review of the Operations of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division conducted by the Office of the Inspector General Oversight and Review Division in March of 2013.

Perez told investigators that white people were not entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act according to a report from the Washington Free Beacon.

Trump: DNC chairman’s race ‘rigged’

The race split along establishment-grassroots lines and in many ways mirrored the divisive 2016 presidential primary between Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Hillary Clinton.

Sanders and many of his allies backed Ellison, the first-ever Muslim elected to Congress and a star on the left.

“Congratulations to Thomas Perez, who has just been named Chairman of the DNC. I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!” Trump tweeted on Sunday, sparking a response from the new DNC chairman.

Perez Tells Trump He’s Going to Be His ‘Worst Nightmare’

In response, Perez, the former Obama labor secretary, told Trump to wipe the grin off his face. He, his deputy chair Keith Ellison, and all Democrats are now a united front, he argued.

Call me Tom. And don’t get too happy. @keithellison and I, and Democrats united across the country, will be your worst nightmare.

Perez can talk a big game, but even his own party is dissatisfied with the new leadership. The former labor secretary, they argue, represents the establishment wing of the party. Ellison would have been the only true “grassroots” leader. What’s more, the DNC voted to continue allowing corporate cash to flow in, proving they’re not so “progressive” after all.

FACTOID: BLABBERMOUTH SCHULTZ QUIETLY CHANGED THE RULES TO ALLOW CORPORATE DONATIONS IN ORDER FOR HILLARY TO DEFEAT SANDERS.

OH, YEAH. THE OSCARS ARE TONIGHT, IF ANYBODY’S INTERESTED. I’M NOT.

The Stars of Sexist and Racist Hollywood Shine Bright Tonight

Tonight, after strolling down the red carpet and preening for the bulb-popping paparazzi, the kings and queens of Hollywood will honor their fans with many tedious televised hours of congratulating and awarding themselves.

News of the Day

Two events of note today:

First, and most important (to ME anyway), today marks 22 years I’ve officially been a pain in my wife’s backside. She gets looks of sympathy from everybody from my family to the checkout people at Walmart. I sit on a scooter at the end of the checkout as she’s paying for her purchases and crack wise. The looks of pity she gets from total strangers are priceless.

Second, today is the day the DNC chooses the next socialist to send the party farther into the wilderness. The choices are Tom Perez, a friend of the Clintons, Joe Biden, and Eric Holder, OR Keith Ellison, the anti-Semitic, hard-left, community-organizing Muslim who is backed by Bernie Sanders, Upchuck Schumer, and the rest of the usual suspects. It matters not a whit who they choose because their message of violence, intolerance, and total government control will never change.

Michael Moore endorses Ellison for DNC chair: Party needs ‘fresh blood’
Moore went on to lay out why he believes Ellison is the best suited to lead the DNC.“He’s from the Midwest,” Moore said. “Before he was a congressman in Minnesota, he helped turn Minnesota from what was then a red state into a blue state. He did political neighborhood organizing in the state of Minnesota. We need an organizer who is going to bring people out and turn this party around.”

The Case for Tom Perez Makes No Sense
His supporters say he’s just as progressive as Keith Ellison. So why bother fielding him at all?  Ellison has captured the support of the left wing. Ellison backed Sanders early in his primary race against Hillary Clinton, and was one of the first candidates to announce his bid for DNC chair. The Hill reports, “Perez supporters have expressed concern about handing the party over to the Sanders wing of the party, arguing that Ellison would move the party too far to the left.” And the New York Times suggests that Democratic leaders pushed Perez to run because they viewed Ellison as too close to the Sanders wing.

The Sanders vs. Clinton schism in the Democratic party isn’t going away

Keith Ellison is the progressive choice being supported by Sanders himself. As Ed noted yesterday, Ellison is already taking a far left line, pushing for impeachment of President Trump (who has also offered a semi-endorsement of Ellison). But moderates in the party don’t like Ellison much.
Case in point, today Alan Dershowitz wrote a piece for the Hill threatening to leave the party if Ellison becomes chairman:
“There has been powerful push from the hard-left of the Democratic Party, led by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), to elect Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) chairman. If he is elected, I will quit the party after 60 years of loyal association and voting.”

DNC chair vote: live coverage

Here is a look at the clicker Democrats will use to register their votes, courtesy of Frank Leone, a DNC member from Virginia. Members will also fill out paper ballots that will be collected for a later audit.
There are believed to be several dozen members that are not on hand who instead sent proxies to register their votes.

Obama, Democratic ‘super group’ unite to end gerrymandering, win state races, reclaim majorities
democratsTHEY HONESTLY THINK THE PROBLEM IS THAT THEY HAVEN’T GOTTEN THEIR MESSAGE OUT.  THE ACTUAL PROBLEM IS, IT HAS. AND IT’S BEEN SOUNDLY REJECTED.

“America needs non-partisan redistricting commissions,” O’Malley said at Boston College Law School, where he’s now a visiting professor. “This simple reform … must become the new norm of American democracy. … How can we expect people to vote if their voice has been carved into irrelevance by a political map ahead of time?”

An early test for Democrats trying to win state-level races and stopping the Trump wave arrives this weekend.

Delaware is holding a special election for an open state Senate seat that will decided whether Democrats keep their roughly 40-year hold on the chamber.

“If we lose, a new Republican majority will take power and rubber-stamp every single one of Trump’s hateful policies,” the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee said in a recent fundraising letter. “They’ll grind all our progress to a halt.”

THE ACADEMY AWARDS ARE TOMORROW NIGHT. YEAH, I DON’T CARE EITHER.

Street Artist Mocks Hollywood And The Oscars With Fake Movie Posters
Conservative artist Sabo created fake movie posters to mock Hollywood and the Oscars ahead of Sunday’s show to send a message to celebrities who keep attacking President Donald Trump.

The Los Angeles based street artist plastered the movie posters and “fake Redbox kiosks” Thursday night he created in “hard to reach places” near where celebrities will be walking the red carpet at the 89th Academy Awards show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.


“Yeah, we wouldn’t have paid full price to watch any Oscar nominated movies either,” one of the sayings on the fake RedBox kiosks read.
“These pieces look so legit no one is thinking to take them down,” Sabo said. “It almost looks like a real Redbox ad. I consider this piece my representation of the discounting of Hollywood.”

Spicer: President Trump Will Not Watch The Academy Awards This Year

President Trump will not watch the Academy Awards Sunday night, press secretary Sean Spicer said at the briefing Wednesday.
“I’ve got to be honest with you, I think the president will be hosting the Governors Ball that night,” Spicer said when asked if Trump would be watching. “The first lady has put a lot of time into this event, welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital. I have a feeling that’s where the president and first lady are going to be focused on Sunday night, so we’ll go from there.”

Before that, Spicer was asked why he thinks celebrities like Meryl Streep give politically charged speeches from the stage at awards shows.

“I have no idea. It’s a free country. I think Hollywood is known for being rather far to the left in its opinions.”

They Still Wonder Why They Lost

Day after day you read the latest acts of violence, hate, and hypocrisy and it gets to the point where it’s hard to gin up much outrage. The democrats are a persistent bunch, however, and sometimes they exceed even their own subterranean expectations. Yesterday was one of those days.
Remember Tom Hayden? The commie asshole who was porking Hanoi Jane for a while? A woman named Janet Nguyen, who escaped Vietnam in a small boat with her family, had the temerity to criticize him yesterday. (Yes, he’s dead, but that doesn’t matter to the left.)

Democrats Forcibly Remove Female GOP California State Senator From Senate Floor
Will the mainstream media make Republican California state Senator Janet Nguyen a star like they did with Democrat Texas state Senator Wendy Davis or Democrat U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts for speaking truth to power as those liberal woman politicians were lionized by the media?
Video posted by the California Senate GOP Caucus shows Nguyen being forcibly removed from the Senate floor by Sergeants at Arms under orders from the Democrat majority as she spoke critically about the late state Senator Tom Hayden and his support for the communist regime in Vietnam which her family fled. Hayden passed away last October but was remembered by his Senate colleagues in speeches given on Tuesday. Nguyen chose to not participate or mar the remembrance of Hayden that day.
Complete video of the Nguyen incident was posted to YouTube by CBS Sacramento. Nguyen spoke about Hayden in Vietnamese at first. It was when she translated her remarks into English that she was shut down and eventually dragged away.

“Members, today I recognize in memory the millions of Vietnamese and hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese refugees who died in seeking for freedom and democracy,” she said. “On Tuesday, you had an opportunity to honor Sen. Tom Hayden. With all due respect, I would like to offer this historical perspective …”
“Sergeants, please remove Sen. Nguyen from the chamber,” Lara said. “Have her removed immediately. Sergeants, please remove Sen. Nguyen, she is out of order…”
WELCOME TO CALIFORNIA, WHERE FREE SPEECH MUST BE PRE-APPROVED OR ELSE IT’S NOT TOLERATED.

I don’t have a violent bone in my body, but when I saw this I wanted to grab this prick by the throat and rip his tongue out.
This piece of liberal trash would be mixing paint at Home Depot were it not for his last name.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo Suggests 12 Year Old Girls Are The Problem If They Don’t Want To See A Male’s Genitals In Locker Rooms

CNN’s Chris Cuomo thinks that a 12 year old little girl is the problem if she doesn’t want to be in a locker room with a male where he can expose his genitals to her. He also said that if her father had a problem with it, he is either overprotective or intolerant. There are no words for the level of degeneracy this man has sunk to. What kind of society do we have when it’s not even a priority to protect our daughters from sexual perversion?









Texas policy forces transgender teen boy to wrestle against female athletes
On Friday, Mack Beggs, an undefeated high school wrestler from Texas, will compete at the girl’s state tournament in suburban Houston.
But unlike the rest of the teen’s female competitors, Beggs, 17, is a boy.
For more than a year, the teen, who was born a girl, has been transitioning from female to male with the help of testosterone therapy.
Some of Beggs’ female competitors forfeited their matches in the regional meet, reported the Associated Press, out of apparent fear of injury because the 17-year-old is taking testosterone that could create a physical disadvantage.
Beggs wrestles in the 110-pound class, where his record is 52-0.
It was the parents and coaches, Mack Beggs wrote on social media, that were making waves, not the kids.
“The thing is, we want to wrestle each other. I feel so sick and disgusted by the discrimination not by the kids, the PARENTS AND COACHES,” the teen wrote on Facebook. “These kids don’t care who you put in front of them to wrestle. We just want to WRESTLE. THEY are taking that away from me and from the people I’m competing with.”

Philly’s Soda Tax By Democrats Causes Massive Job Loss
If you’re thinking to yourself, “Wait, you can’t stop people from drinking sodas and also reap huge tax receipts on the sales of soda at the same time,” then you’re at least two steps ahead of the City of Philadelphia, and you probably know by now where the rest of this story is going, too.

Democratic Senators Are Avoiding Town Halls
THEY’RE NOT AFRAID OF REPUBLICAN PROTESTERS, WE DON’T DO THAT.
IT’S THE HOWLING MOBS THEY CREATED AND ENCOURAGED.
Democratic Senators have been avoiding town halls with their constituents, even though ten of them are up for re-election in 2018.
Only been a few have taken on town halls, the New York Post reported on Friday.
Hillary Shields, a member of Kansas City Indivisible, said that her Senator skipping out on an invitation for a town hall suggests that lawmakers are “afraid” of the people they represent.

How Fragile Life Is

They say death is the final stage of living. Sometimes a terrible illness like cancer will drain the life from someone a little every day until there is nothing left. I watched my stepdad go from a healthy 180# to about 60# when the Lord finally released him from his pain. I have an 8-year-old grandson who has waged a battle with this killer for 2 years and is holding his own. Other times it comes in the blink of an eye. In the duration of a moment it can end.

In the last week not one but two personalities from Fox News have passed away. First was Bulls and Bears host Brenda Buttner.

Fox News Host Brenda Buttner Dies at 55

Before joining Fox in 2000, Buttner hosted CNBC’s “The Money Club” and served as a Washington correspondent for the cabler in the early ’90s.  A graduate of Harvard, Buttner began her TV career at NBC affiliate KCRL in Reno, NV. She is survived by her two daughters.

Today came word that Alan Colmes, who was the foil to Sean Hannity for years, has passed away.

Fox News’ Alan Colmes Dies at 66 After ‘Brief Illness’
“Alan Colmes passed away this morning after a brief illness. He was 66 years old. He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, Jocelyn Elise Crowley. He was a great guy, brilliant, hysterical, and moral. He was fiercely loyal, and the only thing he loved more than his work was his life with Jocelyn. He will be missed. The family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time.”

The segment then aired a tribute package from Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity, Colmes’ former co-host on Hannity & Colmes, a nightly political debate show that ran on the Fox News Channel from 1996 to 2009.

My grandmother, the wizened old matriarch of the family, always said

  • “One day you ain’t gonna wake up. Then it’s too late to worry, so stay right with God.”
  • “All the money in the world won’t buy you another second when the time comes.”
  • “I ain’t never seen a Brinks truck in a funeral procession. You ain’t takin’ nothin’ with you.”

There are many times I’d give all I own just to talk to her again for an hour. She always seemed to know what to say in times of crisis.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Drek

Hired a fishing guide yesterday for a trip in late April. My life is so exciting, I can hardly stand it.

Trump smashes Obama’s small-donor fundraising pace, bests Clinton, Sanders combined

Mr. Trump raised about $239 million from small donors during the campaign, compared with Mr. Obama’s $219 million in 2012 — then a record — and about $181 million in 2008, according to the report from the Campaign Finance Institute.

Mr. Trump’s total was also more than the small-dollar donations — defined as $200 or less — given to 2016 Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton ($137 million) and Sen. Bernard Sanders ($100 million) combined.

Michael Moore Launches Website With Goal To Remove Trump From Office
GOOD LUCK WITH THAT, FAT BOY.

“GOOD NEWS FRIENDS,” Moore wrote in the lengthy post. “I’ve promised you a one-stop site, a clearinghouse of all actions–a RESISTANCE CALENDAR–where you can find EVERY upcoming action, protest, march, sit-in, town hall, anti-Trump, pro-democracy event in all 50 states! A site where YOU can post your own action so all can see it.”

New Website Helps Libs Imagine Life Under President Hillary
This site declares itself as “news from the real America, where the majority rules:”   There is no indication that this site is the genius brainchild of conservative super trolls. Moreover, most of the articles sound like they’re right out of The Huffington Post, Salon, or at Mic.com. But either way, the Onion-esque style will bring laughs for some, and strange comfort for others.

Trump Is Beating the Media at Its Own Game
The left’s own politics by shorthand is now being turned against it.

From ill-mannered reporters come lectures on manners. From partisans come demands for non-partisanship. Almost all of the complaints of the press can be boiled down to one demand: that its conservative targets unilaterally disarm. We fight, you surrender — that is the media’s idea of civility.

So expect the squeals of the media to grow in proportion to Trump’s exposure of its fraudulence. Bret Stephens and company can pompously say that Trump is an opponent of “objectivity itself.” But all that means is that he rejects their phony claims of objectivity and impedes their partisan wishes.

NBC uses a group of school children to make a video trashing Trump

THERE IS NO DEPTH TO WHICH THESE BLOATED TOADS WILL NOT STOOP

If you ask NBC News, it seems American schoolchildren do not like President Donald Trump.  In two videos released by the network, students deliver their “hopes and fears” to the new president in predominantly negative comments.

“Just because I’m Mexican doesn’t mean you can build a wall in my country,” a young girl said in “Dear Mr. President: Letters from the American Children.”

“Not letting immigrants into America is really not nice, so please let them in,” another young boy said.

Am Are Childurns Lurning Yet?

Damn, that hurt.

There are a couple education-related items in the news right now but you can find others incidents rather easily.

Florida Teacher Reassigned After Making Pro-Trump Facebook Post Supporting Mass Deportation During School Hours

Veronica Fleming was removed from her role as a computer lab teacher and assigned to administrative duties after she wrote that “glad about massive deportation” because it means there will be “less mouths to feed.”
The teacher taught at Parkside Elementary School, where 96 percent of students are minorities. Her post caused outrage among parents at the school, where 70 percent of students are Latino and 20 percent are Haitian.
Fleming is believed to have posted the status during school hours as she taught students who could be affected by deportation.
A petition calling for her firing has reached over 3,000 signatures.

THEN THERE’S THIS:
New York Teacher Disciplined for Anti-Trump Vocabulary Assignment
A teacher from a Staten Island, New York school has been disciplined after giving her students a vocabulary assignment that contained an anti-Trump question.

Adria Zawatsky, a veteran sixth-grade English teacher at Paulo Intermediate School (I.S. 75) received a letter of reprimand following a meeting with the school’s principal, Kenneth Zapata.

Zawatsky, who earns a six-figure annual salary, was disciplined after parent Vincent Ungro of Annadale reported to the Staten Island Advance that his 11-year-old daughter brought home a vocabulary assignment with the following fill-in-the-blank statements:

“President Trump speaks in a very superior and _________ manner insulting many people. He needs to be more __________ so that the American people respect and admire him.”
The choices students were given to respond to the statements were the words, “haughty” and “humble.”

A second statement which read, “Barack Obama set a _________ when he became the first African American president,” was supposed to be completed with the word “precedent.”

Ungro instructed his daughter not to complete the three statements regarding Trump and Obama. He added his own hand-written note to the teacher on the assignment that read, “Please keep your political views to yourself and do not try to influence my daughter.”
Firstly, I do not believe I was expressing a political view at all on my vocabulary sheet. My reference to President Trump was about his personality traits rather than his ability as a president.

The media is nonstop on very similar references. This is considered freedom of speech and I feel I have the same right as they do.

THIS ARTICLE MAKES A PRETTY GOOD CASE WHY TEACHERS ARE NEARLY ALL FAR LEFT
Why Professors Object to Being Recorded
Olga Perez Stable Cox, went into an extended hate-rant against the president-elect. Among other things, she described the Trump election as an “act of terrorism,” labelled him a “white supremacist” and called Vice-President-Elect Mike Pence “one of the most anti-gay humans in this country.”
When a student who recorded the diatribe posted the recording on social media, the professor’s union, the Coast Federation of Educators, AFT local chapter 1911, posted this message on Facebook:
“This is an illegal recording without the permission of the instructor. The student will be identified and may be facing legal action.”
The aforementioned California Educational Code states:
“The use by any person, including a student, of any electronic listening or recording device in any classroom without the prior consent of the instructor is prohibited. . . .”
They fear having what they say exposed to the general public.
Our colleges, universities, (and an increasing number of high schools and elementary schools) have been transformed from educational institutions into indoctrination institutions. With the left-wing takeover of universities, their primary aim has become graduating as many leftists as possible.
Thus, in the “social sciences” – disciplines outside the natural sciences and math – a large number of college teachers inject their politics into their classrooms. And if they are recorded, the general public will become aware of just how politicized their classroom lectures are.
Most professors objecting to being recorded know on some level that they are persuasive only when their audience is composed largely of very young people just out of high school. They know that if their ideas are exposed to adults, they may be revealed as intellectual lightweights.
THEY CANNOT TOLERATE A LIGHT SHINED TO EXPOSE THEIR SUBVERSION TO PEOPLE WHO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EDUCATION AND INDOCTRINATION

John McCain: Media’s Useful Idiot

They like him; they really like him. At least, that’s what he’s convinced himself of in his own delusional mind. Recall when he was defeated by George W. Bush for the Republican nomination in 2000 and had to wait his turn in 2008. At that time he famously stated that the media was his voting base. It never once dawned on him that the only reason they tolerated having him around was to bash his own party, especially for W., which they held in bitter contempt after the Democrats tried unsuccessfully to steal the Florida vote, hence the presidency.

McCain has never met a media ass he wouldn’t kiss or an ally he wouldn’t betray. I did a piece about him on this blog a few months ago. In case you’ve forgotten, he was Russ Feingold’s co-conspirator on the infamous legislation to “get money out of politics.” Even though the problem was politicians who could be swayed by the filthy euchre. Including the self-serving, sanctimonious prick himself:

John McCain and the Keating Five Scandal

Just what is the Keating Five scandal?

Senator John McCain was one of five senators accused of corruption in 1989 in the Savings and Loan (S&L) crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The other four senators were Alan Cranston (D-CA), Dennis DeConcini (D-AZ), John Glenn (D-OH), and Donald W. Riegle (D-MI). The crisis was the failure of 747 S&Ls in the United States costing an estimated $160.1 billion, about $124.6 billion of which was directly paid for by U.S. taxpayers.

These five senators were accused of improperly intervening before the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB) in 1987 on behalf of Charles Keating, chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, which was a target of a regulatory investigation by the FHLBB. The FHLBB subsequently backed off taking action against Lincoln. By failing to take action, Lincoln was able to operate for two more years until its collapse in 1989, at a cost of $2 billion to the federal government. Some 23,000 Lincoln bondholders were defrauded and many elderly investors lost their life savings.

John McCain Slams Administration as in ‘Disarray’ at Munich Security Conference
WHY THE HELL DOES HE PRESUME TO SPEAK FOR AMERICA?

Sen. John McCain wasted no time at the Munich Security Conference in Germany on Friday as he portrayed the Trump administration as being in a state of “disarray,” in contrast to the message of reassurance from administration officials.

John McCain Becomes Critic in Chief of the Trump Administration
“In many respects, this administration is in disarray, and they’ve got a lot of work to do,” he said.

A day later, in an interview for “Meet the Press,” Mr. McCain challenged Mr. Trump’s contention that the news media is “the enemy of the American people.”

“The first thing that dictators do is shut down the press,” he said, adding that while he was not calling the president a dictator, “we need to learn the lessons of history.”

YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DICTATORS, DICKHEAD; YOU JERKED ONE OFF FOR EIGHT LONG YEARS

John McCain’s “dictator” talk ignores reality and his own past with the media
91adc629db3997b25090d59b89bf51e2d0f804157642502618835622635dbe6bArizona Senator John McCain is a very popular figure with the mainstream media. (I bet that’s a sentence you never thought you’d read.) The latest reason for this newly emerging love affair between the press and the decorated war hero is his response to the speech given by President Trump during his rally in Florida yesterday. Following the brief but raucous event, McCain was ushered out to give the media his own take on the speech, during which he invoked the image of a “dictator” when discussing the president’s critique of political journalism. (CNN)

“I hate the press,” the Arizona Republican sarcastically told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.” “I hate you especially. But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It’s vital.”

McCain: Trump’s Attacks on Press Are ‘How Dictators Get Started’

TAPPER AND McSTAIN WERE BLOWING KISSES AT EACH OTHER

Rand Paul: We’re “Very Lucky” Trump Is in Charge and Not McCain

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) blasted fellow Republican and anti-Trump Senator John McCain (R-AZ) this morning on ABC’s “This Week.”

Paul said that McCain’s recent criticisms of Trump are driven by his “personal dispute” with the president over foreign policy.

He added that McCain and Trump are at odds because McCain supports the wide deployment of U.S. troops to protect and promote American interests abroad while he characterized Trump’s views as closer to a realpolitik approach to foreign policy.

Where was McCain when Obama attacked the free press?
feb20-march5_2017_mccain-nocrop-w710-h2147483647“That’s how dictators are made!” he shrieked. It was rich stuff, given that most of his European listeners do not have the same wide press freedoms found in the states. But more to the point, it was McCain up to his old tricks: Ingratiating himself to the anti-Trump press by playing its champion, in a bid to be the media’s darling.

What stands out here is the hypocrisy of his claims. He’s suddenly concerned about press freedoms and dictators?
Where was McCain when President Obama was systematically violating press freedoms every which way to Tuesday?

Seven examples of Obama’s attacks on a free press spring to mind and not one of them drew any significant criticism from McCain.

McCain has ‘more hope than belief’ that GOP can investigate Trump White House

McCain, R-Ariz., was asked if he was confident the GOP majority in Congress was able to thoroughly look into the relationship between members of the White House and Russia.

“I hope so. And I have to believe so,” he said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” that aired on Sunday. “More hope than belief.”
And I think the rollout of the, quote, ‘immigration reform’ was an example of a need for an orderly decision-making process in the White House. And that, I think, is probably what’s plaguing them more than anything else right now,” McCain said.

RINO John McCain says TWO WORDS about Trump, has conservatives laughing
As for understanding the issues, again I think that McCain seriously underestimates Trump and has read him completely wrong. What’s more, I think a lot of John McCain’s hot air is his attempt to stay relevant and be in the limelight.

The strains in the European Union over Brexit and refugees are strains of their own making. Trump puts America first and frankly, I don’t give a rat’s ass if that upsets them. And I’ll say it again, the Cold War never ended, it shifted. These bozos just don’t get it and it is very, very dangerous. The executive order on refugees could have been rolled out better, but the substance of that order was constitutional and something that is necessary for the survival of this country. McCain needs to stop dissing the President and start looking for how he can help improve things.

SORRY FOR THE RANT. I JUST GET SO TIRED OF THIS WORLD CLASS POMPOUS ASS BEING HANDED AN OUTLET EVERY TIME HE WANTS TO EMBARRASS HIS OWN PARTY AND PRESIDENT. HE HAD HIS CHANCE. HE GAVE IT AWAY TO LOOK “GENTLEMANLY.” FUCK HIM.
