Hand-In-Hand, Heads Up Their A**es

There was a star-studded benefit last night to raise money for the victims of Harvey and Irma. In an hour they raised about $14 million. That’s about what Leo Decapitate makes for one of his crappy movies. Living the Hollywood lifestyle means you can make tens of millions of dollars and still bitch about what a rotten country this is. If you guessed that there was a lot of political whining going on, you’d be right. The reportage also varied greatly. This is from MSN:

‘Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief’ Sees Stars Call for Unity: ‘Natural Disasters Don’t Discriminate’
The star-studded phone bank for the event included: Jay Leno, Billy Crystal, Barbara Streisand, Jay Leno, Craig Robinson, Miles Teller, Jared Leto, Jeremy Renner, Josh Gad, Cher, Justin Bieber, Julia Roberts, George Clooney, Sofia Vergara, David Spade, Adam Sandler, Jon Stewart, Bryan Cranston, Tyler Perry, and many more raising money for the homes and lives destroyed in places like Houston, Texas, and the Florida Keys.

Beyoncé, a native of Houston herself, said in her message, “Natural disasters don’t discriminate. They don’t see if you’re an immigrant, black or white, Jewish or Muslim, rich or poor…We’re all in this together.”

Continuing, Beyoncé said, “The effects of climate change are playing out around the world everyday.” She then implied that climate change was behind the hurricanes, a monsoon in India and the recent earthquake in Mexico.

THE DAILY CALLER WAS CLOSER TO THE TRUTH:
Hurricane Telethon Gets Political Right At The Start
Singer Stevie Wonder kicked off Tuesday’s star studded Hand In Hand telethon to raise money for hurricane recovery by getting political. Wonder started the show by saying, “Anyone who believes that there’s no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent.”

THE LAST TIME I HEARD FROM STEVELAND HARDAWAY(HIS REAL NAME) HE WAS SINGING ABOUT VOTING FOR GORE AND LIEBERMAN.
THEN, OF COURSE, THERE WERE THE COMMAND PERFORMANCES FOR BROTHER BARACK.
The event mirrors past telethons for natural disasters.
The 2005 telethon to raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina became known for Kanye West’s infamous anti-President George W. Bush comments. “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” West said as a stunned Mike Meyers looked on.

http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/12/hurricane-telethon-gets-political-right-at-the-start-video/

I’m guessing after the cameras were turned off there was a lot of groping, preening, and backslapping because they donated an hour of their precious time to those whose lives have been turned upside down. Fourteen million dollars seems like a lot of money but considering that it will take billions to put things back together it was a spit in the ocean.
Recall that the left was united in their hope that Irma would destroy Mar-A-Lago.

Delingpole: Damp Squib Irma Spares Mar-a-Lago; Wreaks Havoc on Climate Chicken Littles
Irma is now officially the most disastrous hurricane in the history of the world…
…But only if you’re a radical Muslim or a climate alarmist or you work in the construction industry.
For the last week, all the usual suspects from green hedgefunder Tom “rhymes with liar” Steyer to anti-capitalist disaster harpie Naomi Klein – plus their de facto allies in Islamic State – have been wetting their knickers with excitement at the prospect of a biblical inundation to rival Noah’s flood.
Instead the worst possible thing happened.
Not only did Irma fail to destroy nearly as many Trump-voting Floridian homes and businesses as they had hoped; but it left the mother of all targets – Mar-a-Lago – without virtually a scratch.

Thanks to Most Merciful God

After the horrendous devastation that Hurricane Harvey wrought, Hurricane Irma bore down on Florida and the Gulf. While it was massive and caused great damage it could have been far, far worse had it not weakened substantially before it made landfall. Our dear friends who live in the area came through it and will recover in good time. Almighty God has answered our prayers and for that I am truly thankful.

Bannon: McConnell Told Trump to Cut Out the “Drain the Swamp” Stuff

Breitbart’s Steve Bannon went after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan during the 60 Minutes interview aired Sunday night, saying, “They do not want Donald Trump’s populist, nationalist economic agenda to be implemented.”

Ex-Hillary Adviser: Dems Must Double Down on ‘Identity Politics’

New York Times reporter Nick Confessore pointed out that it is impossible for Democrats to be a majority party “absent a coalition of a substantial number of working-class white voters.” He pointed out that every Democrat who was won the presidency, including former President Barack Obama, has won over working-class white voters in places like Macomb County, Michigan. Confessore said that if Democrats don’t appeal to these voters, they will continue to be a “minority party for years to come.”

Judge orders Maryland bar to investigate lawyers who helped Clinton delete emails
WHEN A MEMBER OF THE CLINTON CRIMINAL SYNDICATE IS ACTUALLY INDICTED, LET ME KNOW, M’KAY?

Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. said the complaints lodged against David E. Kendall, Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson were egregious and the state bar couldn’t dismiss them as frivolous.

“There are allegations of destroying evidence,” Judge Harris said at a hearing Monday morning.

He said the state’s rules require the bar to conduct investigations no matter who raises the complaint and can’t brush aside accusations.

A construction labor shortage will add costs and time to the recovery.
Older construction workers have left the workforce since the last housing boom. About a third moved to higher-paying industries such as energy and manufacturing. Fewer young men are pursuing the trades or a vocational education, and some can’t pass a drug test.

Sub-Chicago and America’s Real Crime Rate

Neighborhood, not citywide, crime data show how deadly some portions of American cities have become—especially Chicago’s West and South Sides.

During the 365-day period beginning June 7, 2016, Chicago had 711 first- and second-degree homicides. Of those, 556 (or 78.1 percent) occurred in just ten of the city’s police districts. Those districts—which are contiguous—constitute a geographical area almost half the city’s size and house 40.3 percent of the city’s nearly 2.7 million residents.

Hillary’s ‘What Happened’ Conveniently Ignores One Of The Campaign’s Biggest Scandals
“What Happened” conveniently ignores one of the election’s biggest scandals: then-Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile’s leaking of debate questions to Clinton during the Democratic primary — a clear-cut example of DNC officials rigging the primary in favor of Clinton.

The fact that Brazile leaked questions to Clinton before two different primary debates only came out when WikiLeaks published stolen emails from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta in October.

She dismisses reporting about the leaked emails as the media inventing a story out of nothing.

Naples city manager: Irma caused “very little structural damage”

Moss agreed that the storm initially was as fierce as expected. But he went on to say that the back side of the storm seemed to “peter out.” Although it was still dark, Moss said that so far they have seen “very little structural damage,” and that he doesn’t think the flooding of structures will be “very severe.”

Moss concluded that whereas getting power back could be a challenge, “all in all, I think we’re going to be back to business very quickly.”

Never Forget

Sixteen years ago, just a blink in the millennia of time, but a day that changed many of us forever. We’d never heard of Usama Bin Laden or Al Quaeda. Our intelligence agencies knew who was behind it almost instantaneously, but had done nothing. Imagine if George W. Bush had taken the measures necessary to stop these Muslim scum from boarding a plane. It would have given the media yet another excuse to heap raw sewage on the man they never forgave for foiling their blatant attempt to steal a presidential election. After the slaughter of 3,000 Americans, they pretended to put the country ahead of politics for almost a week before the antagonism began anew.


President Trump issues 9/11 Proclamations

The White House made the announcements Friday in official statements.

“During National Days of Prayer and Remembrance, our Nation recalls the nearly 3,000 innocent people murdered on September 11, 2001. As we reflect on our sorrow and our grief, we come together to pray for those who lost loved ones,” Trump said. “As a Nation, we pray that the love of God and the comfort of knowing that those who perished are forever remembered brings them peace and gives them courage.”

DHS Secretary Duke Signs Jones Act Waiver to Secure Fuel After Major Hurricanes Irma and Harvey

The DHS said the waiver will ensure that over the next week, all options are available to distribute fuel to states and territories impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, both of which have turned out to be historic storms.

http://gcaptain.com/u-s-waives-jones-act-regulations-to-secure-fuel-after-major-hurricanes-irma-and-harvey/

I saw this and couldn’t help but remember the disgraceful way the Muslim prick who defiled our country for eight years behaved in the face of natural disaster. When the BP oil spill happened, he refused to suspend the Wilson Act, which would have allowed ships under foreign flags to enter American waters with the equipment and experience to keep the oil slick from reaching landfall. He steadfastly refused to grant the Gulf governors permission to do ANYTHING for TWO LONG MONTHS until it made landfall and destroyed hundreds of businesses and put thousands out of work. He did this to have an excuse to declare a moratorium on oil exploration in the region.

Deadly ice storms in Kentucky… tornadoes in Oklahoma and Missouri… nothing. Not even a mention. Those states didn’t vote for him, so to hell with them. Superstorm Sandy was nothing for him but an opportunity to be seen with Governor Krispy Kreme, strictly for P.R. After Katrina he concentrated his efforts on defending Ray “School Bus” Nagin for his felony incompetence handling the disaster that befell New Orleans. Thousands fled to Houston, where some are likely still in those FEMA trailers. Such are the results of electing a myth, someone’s fantasy of a man who was the most completely unqualified to do anything in modern history. The tragedy is he’ll never go away and the media whores will never speak what they know is true about him.

Trump Stations 1,000 Marines off Florida Coast for Irma Relief Operations


DEAR NEVER-TRUMPERS AND LIBERAL JERKOFFS: THIS IS WHAT LEADERSHIP LOOKS LIKE.

“We train for this kind of mission. It’s in the DNA of the Marine Expeditionary Unit to rapidly respond to crisis when called upon,” 26th MEU Executive Officer Lt. Colonel Christopher Timothy said in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “Alongside our Navy partners, we stand strong and ready to help those affected by this storm in whatever way we can.”

From the deck of the two warships, Marine pilots are prepared to place five Osprey. six Super Stallions, and three Huey helicopters wherever they are needed to provide assistance and support to local rescue and recovery operations.

Trump Chides FEMA for Denying Disaster Relief to Churches

Florida Shopper Gives Last Generator to Stranger Behind Him in Line

At least 32 looters are arrested across Florida during Irma crime spree

Thieves prompt SWAT standoff after robbing a store for GUNS while others are caught on camera breaking into a sports shop.

Two groups of looters were caught on camera Sunday ransacking two separate sporting goods stores in hurricane-hit South Florida.

At least eight people were filmed by an ABC crew breaking into Simon’s Sportswear in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In midtown Miami, a local reporter watched as at least a dozen looters undertook what appeared to be a well-coordinated theft of a sporting goods shop.  No one in either group has been identified.

A Broward County sheriff’s deputy shot a teenager and arrested another after they allegedly broke in to a home in the affluent suburb of Weston.

Fort Lauderdale police announced the arrest of two 28-year-old men who are alleged to have broken into six homes late Saturday night.

A utility company near Orlando is reporting that residents are complaining of looters posing as utility workers who rob homeowners at gunpoint.

More stuff

I was adding extras to Pete’s post, but it got so it was taking too long to refresh, so here’s the rest.

After Trump announced he would donate $1 million of his own money to hurricane relief, Trump haters griped that it was “chump change” and why did he have to make it all about him and was he really going to do it at all?

After the White House issued a written statement detailing the twelve organizations he and Melania had chosen, Trump haters griped that it was “a lot of religious (and only Christian) groups” and “they just want to make [us] call 12 different places to confirm the donations” and, again, “so what, he’s a billionaire.”

I’m kinda wondering how many of these jerks have donated anything. Also, how many non-Christian groups are out there providing aid? Muslim groups? Progressive groups? Black Lives Matters? Antifa? Hello? Anybody?

2017_09 06 Trump's donations

USA Today proudly reported that it had ID’ed 4500 Trump golf-club members through their social media accounts as well as an online service that lets golfers track their handicaps. Apparently, it’s okay to dox* people for the horrible crime of playing golf, because Trump isn’t all transparent-y the way Obama was. Or something.

dox: search for and publish private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.

I’m going to give posting a miss today.  My heart isn’t in it.  We just got photos of the devastation our loved ones (2 retired sisters living in the home their dad built) experienced.

They were safe, having gone out of state for the eclipse, and have a place to stay (another sister who wasn’t flooded).  But they (and everyone in their neighborhood) lost EVERYTHING.

Must-Miss Television

It is doubtful that anyone who visits here would be a fan of CNN. It takes an absence of intelligence, a willingness to be knowingly lied to, and the gag reflex of a billy goat to engage in such self-inflicted torture. Nonetheless, the professional haters never rest.

Of Course: CNN to Air New Reagan-Bashing Film on Labor Day

On Labor Day, CNN will air The Reagan Show, a new film bashing the 40th president. In case you thought it would be anything other than hostile, the ads make the goal clear. A clip of Reagan saying, “Together we will make America great again,” is paired with a blurb from the website Screen Daily: “An elaborately constructed parable for the Trump era.”
National Review exposed just how nasty the documentary is:
The continuing popularity of President Reagan is a source of profound irritation and unease to liberals. To assuage their pain, they have gone back to their initial rationalization for how Reagan became so beloved: He cheated. Though a lousy actor, he nonetheless fooled the common man with his mesmeric performing skills. It’s the old false-consciousness story: If we liked the man, trickery must have been involved.

According to the professor, Trump was only playing to his base who only cared about DACA because they were white. “We can think about the policy issues but there is this kind of cultural undertow,” he asserted.
“This is really red meat to his base that it’s really speaking to a kind of deep seated cultural anxiety about the changing nature of the country,” he claimed. “That this immigration issue is not about securing the border and it’s not about jobs, it’s not about fixing a bad immigration policy.”

A Study in Contrasts

The media despise Donald Trump. Always will. There hasn’t been a lot of positive said about how he’s handled the disasters in Texas, but anything positive would only be grudgingly given. He visited again yesterday on his way to Louisiana. The spirit, the courage, the love for your neighbor has been undeniable from the beginning. Pettiness and prejudices have been set aside, since everyone shares the suffering equally.

In stark contrast, Barack Obama would not deign to cut his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard short just last year when Louisiana suffered massive floods. He said “he was monitoring the situation closely.” As usual, the media mostly gave him a pass.

This is a national day of prayer. Rejoice and be glad in it.



President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump took time on Saturday to visit flood victims in Houston, Texas and Louisiana. It was their second trip to the flood damaged region.

In 2016, Obama sent out a letter lecturing flood victims about racism.  The Washington Times reported:

“President Obama has refused so far to survey the Louisiana flood disaster, but he did let state and local officials know that he’s watching to make sure they don’t engage in racial discrimination.

“In a 16-page guidance issued Tuesday, the Obama administration, led by the Justice Department, warned Louisiana recipients of federal disaster assistance against engaging in ‘unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency).’”


It was just one year ago, August 2016. Massive flooding in Louisiana damaged or destroyed 60,700 homes in the state, 102,000 people registered for federal assistance, 13 people lost their life.

Where was President Obama? On a 16-day vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. He decided to finish up his vacation rather than cut it short and visit the devastated region. Take a look at these articles from 2016.




THE LEFT MAY CRITICIZE TRUMP FOR “PHOTO OPS” AND SUCH, BUT TO THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST EVERYTHING IT MUST BE A COMFORT KNOWING THAT THE PRESIDENT YOU DIDN’T VOTE FOR IS THERE TO SEE THAT YOU HAVE WHAT YOU NEED TO PUT YOUR LIFE BACK TOGETHER AGAIN.  THIS, DEAR FRIENDS, IS WHAT LEADERSHIP LOOKS LIKE:

Trump praises ‘cooperation and coordination’ after he and Melania swing by Texas and Louisiana to visit thousands made homeless by Hurricane Harvey

Donald and Melania Trump flew out of Joint Air Base Andrews in Washington at around 9.30 on Saturday.  They arrived in Houston in the early afternoon and went straight to the NRG Stadium to meet evacuees.

Melania, who received criticism for the glamorous outfit she chose to travel to Texas in earlier in the week, was defiant with her wardrobe choices on Saturday.  She first emerged from the White House in a $1590 Ralph Lauren dress and $650 pair of Manolo Blahnik heels before changing on board Air Force One into a denim shirt, jeans and sneakers.

After spending time with evacuees at the stadium, the pair went on to a church in Pearland where Trump heaped praise on Texas governor Greg Abbott and congratulated him on doing a ‘terrific job’ since Harvey hit.




HOW DO YOU THINK THIS LADY FELT?






SORRY FOR SO MANY PICTURES, BUT DOGGONE IT, IT FEELS GREAT TO HAVE THE PRESIDENT FELLOWSHIP WITH EVERYONE.

Trump Asks Congress For Nearly $8 Billion To Help Fund Harvey Rescue Effort

President Donald Trump asked Congress Friday night for $7.8 billion to help those left in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Harvey, which pelted parts of Texas with near-Biblical amounts of rain.

Trump’s request was significantly larger than what many experts had expected, as some Congressional sources believed the administration would ask for at least $5.5 billion. The bulk of the funds would go to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, but the request also etched out $450 million for the Small Business Administration.

Nancy Pelosi: The Voters ‘Don’t Want to Hear Us Criticizing the President’


WE DON’T WANT TO HEAR YOU, PERIOD, YOU OLD CRONE.

“(The voters) don’t want to hear us criticizing the president,” Pelosi said. “This was a choice; they made a decision.”

“And to criticize the president personally is to disrespect their judgment,” Pelosi said. “So I say to my members, ‘This is about what we’re going to do.’ ”

President Trump Thanks National Guard and Cajun Navy in Louisiana for their Service

All Hail the Cajun Navy and their meal counterpart — Cajun Gravy

Using social media and the Zello walkie talkie app, Cajun Navy members were able to locate and deploy to those needing rescue.

But the navy isn’t the only band of volunteers sent by our sister state Louisiana. A caravan of meal-makers, going by “Cajun Gravy” showed up to do what they do best — feed people, and first responders in particular.

YOU’D NEVER HEARD OF THE ‘CAJUN GRAVY’? YOU HAVE NOW.

While Louisiana’s Cajun Navy is hard at work rescuing Texans from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, The Cajun Gravy is making sure first responders are well fed. The Cajun Gravy is cooking up famous Louisiana dishes, including things like jambalaya and red beans and rice.

Thursday afternoon, they were operating out of Orange, Texas at a temporary housing location for about 1,000 first responders. Among those being served are Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries agents, Louisiana and Texas National Guard members, strike teams, and water rescue personnel.

A group of Louisiana cooks from the cities of Baton Rouge, Gonzales, and Donaldsonville formed the group after seeing the devastation left behind by Hurricane Harvey. One of the founders, Kyle Rome, owns Kickstands Kitchen, a catering company in Ascension Parish.

Did CNN FAKE this?

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.
