Tolerance Sucks Rocks

The bottom-feeding belly-crawling reptiles commonly known as ‘democrats’ are forever whining about being “tolerant.” What they mean is we’re supposed to shut up and let them get away with their thuggish behavior without question. Of course, it only goes one way. If we object they shout us down. They would be nothing more than whiny little pissants were it not for the media protecting and defending them. On an even playing field they get bitch-slapped on a regular basis. The examples I’m citing here are all from yesterday and today. No need to archive anything, since they live on a steady diet of boorish behavior.

Cuccinelli Tells Liberal to ‘Shut Up!’ When CNN Host Won’t Stop Her Interruptions
After CNN Host Chris Cuomo failed to defend him from being repeatedly interrupted by former national press secretary for Bernie Sanders Symone Sanders, former Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli finally took matters into his own hands, telling Sanders to “Shut up.”

CNN’s Symone Sanders Calls Out White Pundit Who Told Her To ‘Shut Up’ On Live TV
“I highly doubt if I were a white man, he would be telling me to shut up,” she told HuffPost.
His remarks came amid a discussion about the circumstances that led to Saturday’s rally. Sanders said Cuccinelli was “dismissing” the real danger of white supremacy and reminded him of how the violent demonstration was an “egregious symptom” of America’s widespread issues of racism.
Moments later, after Sanders briefly interrupted Cuccinelli to acknowledge the death that resulted from the rally, he replied: “Will you just shut up and let me finish, Simone?”

CNN Panel About Racism Gets Heated: ‘Shut Up for God’s Sake’

CNN’s Acosta Tussles with President Trump (Again)
The never-ending saga of CNN’s Jim Acosta making a fool of himself in front of the Trump White House took another turn on Monday, as he hurled questions at President Trump following a White House event that allowed the President to respond by calling him “fake news.”
Once Trump finished announcing a probe being launched into China’s questionable trade practices, Acosta yelled: “Mr. President, can you explain why you did not condemn those hate groups by name over the weekend?”
ACOSTA: And why are we not having a press conference today? You said on Friday we’ll have a press conference.
TRUMP: We had a press conference. We just had a press conference.
ACOSTA: Can we ask you some more questions then, sir?
TRUMP: It doesn’t bother me at all, but I like real news, not fake news. You’re fake news. Thank you everyone.
ACOSTA: With all due respect — Mr. President haven’t you spread a lot of fake news yourself, sir?
Acosta tweeted afterward about that final jab he got in at the President like it was such a proud achievement. Gold star for you, buddy. Not all heroes wear capes. You can find all of Jim Acosta’s faceplants here because, surely, those would be worth an infinite number of gold stars.

CNN’s Jim Acosta Continues to Disrespect Our President and Should Be Immediately Removed from White House Premises
This time Acosta was way out of line. Never has a reporter been so brutally disrespectful to our American President. Acosta’s actions are embarrassing, childish and way out of line.
In all the years, this moment shows CNN at its worst and it showed how far down CNN has gone.
This is not the first time Acosta interrupted the President at a press conference. In January Acosta was as loud and obnoxious as any reporter has ever been at a news conference.

Again in February Acosta was in the White House and rude in his questioning of the President.

It is long past due that CNN removes their reporter Jim Acosta from the White House. His disrespect of our President shows his disrespect for the 30+ states that voted for President Trump and Acosta’s disrespect for the country as a whole.

Liberal Snowflake Suffers Major Meltdown After NY City Police Officer Cracks Joke
Far left protesters took over the streets of New York City on Monday night in anticipation of President Trump’s return to New York City.

THE LEFTARDS CAN’T TAKE A JOKE… THEY HAVE NO SOUL
One police officer told far left protesters to move away from Trump Tower and joked with them after they asked him why he was a police officer, “I sold my soul for a badge.”
This didn’t sit well with the indoctrinated snowflake. Poor girl suffered a major meltdown.

We’re All White Supremacists Now

The original plan was to do a post on different news — anything to avoid having to talk about the 800 pound gorilla in the room. But stoking the fires of racial hatred has always been a favorite sport of the media whores, taken to an art form by Emperor Barack I, who showed them how to do it. Fort Hood, Trayvon, Ferguson, Baltimore, always quick to accuse police and white people before any relevant facts are known. I believe his attitude was interpreted by some as approval to take revenge on innocent victims.
We have long been accused of racism, homophobia, xenophobia, sexism and all manner of other phobias. The handful of White Nationalists foolishly gave Antifa and BLM an excuse to do what they do best — beat up innocent people when they have them outnumbered 20-1. It was the validation of every leftist’s masturbatory fantasy of seeing white extremists get their comeuppance. Facts matter little when there is an agenda to be advanced.
The white group had a permit and a legal right to assemble. It was the obligation of law enforcement to keep the counter protesters at bay, as they did for the Nazis when they marched in Skokie. Then came the intervention by the lowest form of egg-sucking bastards who ever drew a dishonest breath,Terry McAuliffe, who ordered police to stand down. He pulled their valid permit and funnelled them into the waiting arms of mouth-breathing bastards who live to hurt people. If you think it sounds like a George Soros operation, you may be right.

President Trump came out and denounced ALL violence. That wasn’t nearly enough for the pricks who scream “BLACK LIVES MATTER.” He had to issue a second condemnation singling out the separatists.
Of course, when there exists a white-hot rage against someone who is despised as having interrupted their dreams of a socialist utopia the bile flows like an ocean tide.
Mainstream Media Exploit Charlottesville Violence to Help the Left

The mainstream media enjoys grousing about supposed threats to the First Amendment under President Donald Trump. But few are bothering to stand up for the basic right of freedom of speech in the wake of violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia between white supremacists and left-wing “anti-fascist” rioters.

Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer says Trump campaign gave hate groups ‘a reason to come in the light’

Signer said he believes that Trump’s campaign and the rhetoric that he used on the campaign trail last year emboldened racists and neo-Nazis across the country.
“I think they made a choice in that campaign, a very regrettable one, to really go to peoples prejudices, to go to the gutter,” Signer said. “These influences around the country, these anti-Semites, racists, Aryans, Nazis, KKK, they were always in the shadows, but they’ve been given a key and a reason to come in the light.”

Gov. McAuliffe in Charlottesville ‘No Place in America’ for Alt-Right, Refuses to Condemn AntiFa

Originally billed as a protest in favour of free speech — alongside the disdain over the removal of Confederate statues in the city — the “alt-right” rally found itself transformed into a torch-wielding, Nazi-flag waving dereliction of American values — at least considering the publicity afforded to the event, and the behaviour of some of the rally’s attendees.

Reporter McKelway: Police Were Called Off When Violence Started – They Said, “We’re Leaving. It’s Too Dangerous”

But when the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate then. I asked the guy who was in charge, “Where you going?” He said, “We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.” They had a chance to nip this thing in the bud and they chose not to.

Takes on Joy Reid Over “Anti-fascist” Violence, “White Nationalist” in White House
REID WAS SEETHING BECAUSE SHE WAS JUST A GUEST AND COULDN’T CUT LOWRY OFF LIKE SHE DOES AT MSDNC
Lowry made the point that the so-called “anti-fascists” in Charlottesville also engaged in violence, and the violence was not one-sided, as the videos show. Reid refused to admit that there was violence on both sides, claiming “there was certainly not.”

Kudos to Lowry for having the courage to confront Reid, someone generally unaccustomed to being contradicted.

RICH LOWRY: Look, you have so-called “anti-fascists” who dress in black, wear masks —
JOY REID: Were they beating clergy yesterday?
LOWRY: There was violence on both sides.
REID: There was certainly not.
LOWRY: Yes there was!

So Much Stuff, So Little Space

It was a difficult decision where to begin, since the world is spinning so quickly these days. So I decided to post a memorial for an incredible man and musician who made an indelible mark on America.

Glen Campbell, hit singer and guitarist, dead at 81


I REMEMBER MY GRANDMOTHER LOVED WATCHING THE VARIETY SHOW HE HAD AS A REPLACEMENT ONE SUMMER.

Glen Campbell, the upbeat guitarist from Delight, Arkansas, whose smooth vocals and down-home manner made him a mainstay of music and television for decades, has died, his family announced on Facebook on Tuesday. He was 81.

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and legendary singer and guitarist, Glen Travis Campbell … following his long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease,” a Facebook statement said.

Campbell is best remembered for a string of country-inflected hits that ran from the mid-’60s to the late ’80s: “Gentle on My Mind,” “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “Southern Nights” and “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” among them.

BY THE NUMBERS: President Trump’s Historic First 200 Days – Promises Kept and Records Broken

YOU’LL NEVER HEAR A WORD OF THIS ON CNN.

Government Assistance — Food Stamps

  • More than 1.1 million fewer Americans on food stamps under President Trump.

Jobs

  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump added a projected 1,290,000 jobs in his first 200 days (January through July 2017.) President Obama on the other hand lost more than (4,154,000) million jobs in his first 200 days.

Inflation

  • According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics the US inflation rate decreased to an eight month low in June to 1.6%. This is in part due to President Trump’s energy policies that are helping average Americans in their pocket books with cheaper gas and electricity. The rate has not yet been reported for July. (Under Obama the inflation rate sank to a scary -2.1% by July of 2009.)

Housing

  • Sales are red-hot in the US right now. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market an average 84 days. This year, it’s just 45 days.

Regulations

  • One of the first things that President Trump did in office was to reduce the number or burdensome regulations put in place during the Obama era. Regulations cost Americans and American companies money to implement and maintain. Reducing or halting regulations allows companies to spend their money on more prudent money making areas.

After the Coup, What Then?

EXCELLENT READ BY PAT BUCHANAN

If this city brings Trump down, will the rest of America rejoice?

What will be the reaction out there in fly-over country, that land where the “deplorables” dwell who produce the soldiers to fight our wars? Will they toast the “free press” that brought down the president they elected, and in whom they had placed so much hope?

My guess: The reaction will be one of bitterness, cynicism, despair, a sense that the fix is in, that no matter what we do, they will not let us win.

This is a collaborative enterprise, where everyone protects everyone else’s sources, because all have the same goal: the dumping of Trump. If that requires collusion with criminals, so be it.

Deep State Teams with Fake News: Email Evidence Proves New York Times Soliciting Anti-Trump Bureaucracy Leakers
Emails from a reporter for the New York Times to government employees obtained exclusively by Breitbart News demonstrate that the newspaper’s employees are not just on the receiving end of leaks, but are actually soliciting government employees to become leakers. What’s more, the emails demonstrate the Times colluded with the president of the government union to encourage and solicit these leaks—something that may become highly problematic for both institutions.

Stephen Miller: 1, Media Butt-Sniffers: 0

General Sherman burned Atlanta in 1864. Smoke arose from Atlanta once again yesterday, not from buildings burning, but the massive egos at CNN Headquarters being torched.

White House adviser Stephen Miller came out to discuss Trump’s plan to cut legal immigration. Our favorite presstitute, Jim “sexual” Acosta (my original thought for this month), stepped forward as the first contestant in this version of “Are you smarter than a 5th grader?”  It wasn’t pretty.

Keith Koffler wrote this:

CNN’s Acosta Accuses Trump of Racism with New Immigration Plan

CNN’s Jim Acosta got into it with White House advisor Stephen Miller during an exchange in the White House briefing room this afternoon about an immigration proposal backed by Trump that would favor skilled workers who speak English.

“It sounds like you’re trying to engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country,” Acosta said.

“That’s one of the most outrageous, insulting, ignorant, and foolish things you’ve ever said,” Miller responded. “The notion that you think that this is a racist bill is so wrong and so insulting.”

Acosta then got on the air and said President Trump’s “bias against Latino immigrants” has “infected” senior administration officials like Miller.

FAR LEFT MORON GLENN THRUSH THEN TOOK A SHOT. HE DID NO BETTER.

Stephen Miller Owns Glenn Thrush: ‘NYT Can Hire All The Low-Skilled Workers – See How You Feel!’

Senior Advisor Stephen Miller went on an absolute tear today as he expanded on a new legal immigration bill supported by President Trump.  Far left New York Times hack Glenn Thrush made the mistake of attacking Miller.

Miller then jokingly told Thrush that they could make a carve-out in the bill to specifically allow The New York Times to take in as many unskilled workers as they want, at the cost of creating jobs for American citizens.

“The New York Times can hire all the low-skilled less-pay workers they want from other countries and see how you feel,” Miller said to Thrush.

Miller ‘Had A Blast’ Schooling Acosta On Immigration

Acosta tried to lecture Miller on immigration issues, where he appeared to argue that the Statue of Liberty somehow bans America from prioritizing high-skilled immigrants.

“What you’re proposing, or what the president’s proposing here, does not sound like it’s in keeping with American tradition when it comes to immigration,” Acosta said. “The Statue of Liberty says, ‘give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses,’ it doesn’t say anything about speaking English or being able to be a computer programmer.

“Well, first of all, right now, it’s a requirement that to be naturalized you have to speak English, so the notion that speaking English wouldn’t be a part of immigration systems would be very ahistorical,” Miller responded.

Trump Advisor Miller Schools Acosta: Statue of Liberty Poem on Huddled Masses Added Later

“The only immigrants mentioned at the dedication in 1886 were the ‘illustrious descendants of the French nobility’ who fought on behalf of the United States against Britain during the American Revolution,” the Times reported.

Emma Lazarus’s poem only belatedly became synonymous with the Statute of Liberty,” the Times reported.

MSNBC: Miller’s Battle with Media Using ‘Xenophobia’ Was Maybe Because He Got Bullied as a Kid

Fox anchor on Miller: ‘Don’t put that guy in front of cameras again’

Fox News host Eric Bolling criticized White House senior adviser Stephen Miller for his comments at Wednesday’s press briefing, saying, “Don’t put that guy in front of the cameras again.”

Miller got into a heated exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta while answering questions in place of press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, bashing the network’s White House correspondent for his “cosmopolitan bias.”

Bolling said Wednesday evening that while he disagreed with some parts of President Trump’s newly announced plan to cut legal immigration, “It’s really really important for the country. Merit-based immigration is fantastic.”

Top EPA official resigns over direction of agency under Trump

The former EPA official made $249,000 in her last year of employment, according to the website FederalPay.org, which compiles federal salary data.

For comparison, the average American’s salary is $44,000, according to the Census Bureau, and a senator or congressman makes $174,000 a year.

Southerland’s base salary was $185,100 in 2016. She got a $64,155 bonus that year, and, according to FederalPay.org, she was in “highest-paid ten percent of employees” at EPA.

JUST THINK… 30 YEARS OF SUCKING UP A GOVERNMENT CHECK DOWN THE CRAPPER

Elizabeth “Betsy” Southerland ended her 30-year run at the agency with a scathing exit letter in which she claimed that “the environmental field is suffering from the temporary triumph of myth over truth.” She last worked as the director of science and technology in the Office of Water.

“The truth is there is NO war on coal, there is NO economic crisis caused by environmental protection, and climate change IS caused by man’s activities,” Southerland wrote, directly rejecting many of Trump’s claims.

Pinkerton: The ‘Hard Pivot’ from Health Care to Tax Reform and a Stronger Trump Agenda

We can look back and see that the repeal-and-replace effort was a valiant try at keeping a campaign promise, but it just wasn’t working. Sometimes, as Kenny Rogers might have put it, you’ve got to “Know when to fold ‘em/ Know when to walk away.” Yes, that’s the “the secret to survivin’.” As Trump has always said, failure can happen, but tactical flexibility is the key to long-term success.

Mindful of that survive-so-as-to-fight-again-and-win ethos, GOP leaders on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue have been making what’s been described by one insider as “a hard pivot to tax reform.”

Things You’ll Never See in the Mainstream Media

I haven’t watched an episode of Law & Order SVU in years. While channel surfing last night, I came across it last night for just about two minutes. The episode was called “Fake News.” They were confronting a blogger who said one man’s voice is as powerful as anybody else’s. They started to claim yeah, but the mainstream media tell the truth. Then I remembered why I quit watching this show. Every damn week was another example of bashing republicans and our values. [CtH: Ditto me.]

They would rather turn in their American Express gold cards than give Trump credit for anything. This is the same bunch that had to twist the truth beyond recognition by completely ignoring the facts about what a dickhead Obama was.

THEY WON’T BOTHER MENTIONING STUFF LIKE THIS:
Foxconn to build $10B plant in Wisconsin employing up to 13,000

In what’s being called the largest economic development project in state history, Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn plans to build a $10 billion plant in Wisconsin that would create liquid-crystal display panels and employ as many as 13,000 people.
The planned Wisconsin plant is expected to open in 2020 and be part of a 20 million-square-foot campus on at least 1,000 acres — a location Gov. Scott Walker has dubbed “Wisconn Valley.”
The state would offer $3 billion in economic incentives, Walker said.

WINNING! Walmart Unveils Manufacturing Plan to Create 1.5 MILLION New AMERICAN Jobs

While the media is obsessing over President Trump’s tweets and so-called Russia collusion, the U.S. economy is growing stronger and stronger. Today, Walmart announced it is aiming to create a whopping 1.5 million manufacturing jobs in the United States.

Walmart Inc. (WMT) met with government and business leaders in Washington on Wednesday to unveil a plan to spur growth in domestic manufacturing efforts that company executives say will create an estimated 1.5 million new jobs in the United States.
The meeting included a discussion with key individuals on both sides of the aisle about the biggest challenges the U.S. manufacturing sector currently faces. Using an analysis by the Boston Consulting Group and Walmart sourcing data, the company crafted a 10-point plan to “recapture” an estimated $300 billion in imported consumer goods, stoking job growth in the process.

Amazon seeks to fill 50,000 warehouse jobs, including hundreds in Kent

The e-commerce giant says next Wednesday it will welcome applicants at 10 of its warehouses, including the one in Kent, where it plans to hire hundreds. Amazon says it will make “thousands” of job offers on the spot.
The move underscores the continued rapid growth of Amazon’s fulfillment operations. The company has invested billions building new facilities to catch up with increasing customer demand for the products sold on its website, and to keep its promises of ever-quicker delivery.
Amazon says that most of the of the jobs available are full time and entail picking, packing and shipping customer orders. Some 10,000 of the opportunities on offer are part-time roles at sorting centers, smaller facilities that sift through packages shipped from Amazon’s warehouses and send them to local post offices.

How bad has Trump Derangement Syndrome gotten? MSNBC just reached #1 in prime time
And now, with outrage (or fauxrage in many cases) being the top menu item on the TV menu, MSNBC seems to be reaping the rewards. And if this isn’t a blip on the radar, it’s truly phenomenal. For the first time in the network’s entire history, they finished the week number one in total viewership in prime time, not just among the cable news channels, but for all cable networks.

[CtH: This is really depressing!]

SCREAMING FAR LEFT PROTEST MOB Disrupts US Senate Vote on Obamacare

When the vote was announced far left protesters began screaming loudly, “Kill the Bill, Don’t Kill Us!”  It took the Sergeant of Arms and federal officers SEVERAL MINUTES to remove the far left mob.  This was unprecedented.

A long history of violence among U.S. liberals
Recently on HBO’s Real Time, Bill Maher had this to say about the attack on Republican legislators: “We would never really think this would happen on the left. We think of the right as the people who pick up guns and do crazy things like this.”
And that’s just what they think. Liberals are peaceful and conservatives are violent. Even those who take pride in their political incorrectness repeat it. But you don’t have to be an American historian to know how little it holds up to the facts.

Trump Mocks ‘Young’ Protester: ‘Going Home To Mommy’
During Trump’s remarks at the Ohio rally — a state he won during the election — a protester stood up in the crowd with a large Soviet flag, and the crowd began pointing to the protester.
“If you don’t point no one’s gonna even know he’s here,” Trump mocked. “Weak voice. Weak voice.”
An attendee behind the protester ripped the flag out of his hands and the protester was dragged out of the event by police.
“Boy, he’s a young one, he’s going back home to mommy,” Trump said as the crowd cheered and laughed. “Boy, he’s in trouble. He’s in trouble.”

Friday Wrapup

The thing about being retired is that Friday has no real significance and we’re generally happy on Monday. We have the freedom to do whatever we want without asking permission. Miss Olivia pitched her first game last night and RJ has his first Pony League Tournament game tonight. I just wish the rain hadn’t swollen the river over flood stage so we can’t get the boat in yet. Problems, problems.

OK, ENOUGH ABOUT BRAGGING ON MY GRANDKIDS. DOWN TO THE DEPRESSING STUFF.

Police Funeral: “Where are the demonstrations for this single mom?”
NYPD Commissioner’s powerful message on the death of Officer Miosotis Familia.
IT IS A TRAVESTY THAT THIS CITY IS RUN BY A LOWLIFE WHO ENJOYS POPULARITY AMONG THE REPTILES WHO CRAWL AROUND THE STREETS.
The commissioner asked why people in such a politically active city like New York aren’t protesting in the streets against this senseless killing.

“So, where are the demonstrations for this single mom, who cared for her elderly mother and her own three children? There is anger and sorrow, but why is there no outrage? Because Miosotis was wearing a uniform? Because it was her job?” he asked. “I simply DO NOT accept that.”

He Fights

I REMEMBER IN 1864 ABRAHAM LINCOLN WAS ASKED WHY HE DID NOT DISMISS U.S. GRANT FOR DRUNKENESS.
HIS ANSWER WAS: ‘I CANNOT SPARE THIS MAN…HE FIGHTS.’
(That’s not from the article…I just knew it.)
We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

Dan Rather Resurrects Disgraced Career As Trump Critic

In August 2016, roughly four months before the election, Rather went on what USA Today described as an “epic Facebook rant” after Trump said the “Second Amendment people” would keep Hillary Clinton from abolishing the Second Amendment. Many in the media portrayed that comment as a threat. Rather’s Facebook post — in which he urged journalists to abandon objectivity in covering Trump — received approving coverage in the media.

Fashion Notes: Melania Trump Wears Custom Red-White-and-Blue Frock For Dinner in Paris

Melania, always one for custom-made high fashion frocks, wore a bespoke Hervé Pierre red, white and navy blue cocktail dress for the formal dinner, paired with black stilettos and perfectly tousled hair.

The dress takes inspiration from the Americana and French flags, but also is unusual in its bodice origami-like detailing, which resembles a basket of wheat.

Jesse Jackson: Hillary Clinton Really ‘Won The Election’ Against Trump — But ‘It Was Stolen’

“To have a head of our party who is sensitive to the plight of working people is the order of this day,” Jackson said. “Don’t forget — when you lose, you tend to amplify ‘woulda, coulda, shoulda.’ When you win, you cover up your sins. Don’t let anybody fool you, we worked last year, we won the election. It was stolen.”
