ESCALATION: A National Guard APV just mowed down pro-Guaido protesters in Caracas (Warning: Graphic video)

Tue, 04/30/2019 - 16:29

Forces loyal to the Maduro regime in Venezuela were just seen live on TV mowing down pro-Guaido protesters with a National Guard armored personnel vehicle. Warning: Graphic video:

Maduro's national guard just ran over a group of pro-Guaido protesters in Venezuela.

According to reports, this occurred at the La Carlota airbase:

Another video appears to show members of the military arresting National Guard troops loyal to Maduro:

Es ahora, Venezuela!

So, has the proverbial red line been crossed for Venezuela’s military leaders yet?

Firing on civilians has been a redline for military leaders in #Venezuela.

Are they going to allow #MaduroRegime armed gangs to kill civilians to protect regime that’s going to come after many of them next?

It’s time to step forward & restore safety & constitutional order

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) April 30, 2019

The entire world just watched a National Guard armored vehicle ram into a crowd of civilian protestors in #Caracas.

How far will leaders of military allow this assault on their own people to go in #Venezuela?

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) April 30, 2019

The video of the armored GNB vehicle ramming into a crowd in #Caracas was just broadcast live on @CNN for the entire world to see.

Military & security leaders must realize they are & will be held responsible for this.

Tue, 04/30/2019 - 16:08

Don’t miss this: CNN’s Jim Sciutto tweeted something really stupid about what is happening in Venezuela today in an attempt to dunk on the Trump administration.

Don’t miss this: the US is now publicly supporting an armed coup in Venezuela. On the other side is a govt backed by Russia.

— Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) April 30, 2019

Soooo … he’s saying that supporting those fighting against the dictator and Russian-backed govt. is a bad thing?

We thought Russia was bad?

Wish these yahoos would make up their freakin’ minds.

Awful spin. The rightful government and their supporters in the military are taking back power from the brutal dictator that seized it. The US is simply supporting the rightful interim President.

— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) April 30, 2019

But ORANGE MAN BAD.

Wait, does that work here?

Yeah, we think it does.

So basically now CNN is supporting a Russian coup but not someone backed by the US? My how fast you go back to being pro Russia.

— Loren (@LorenSethC) April 30, 2019

It’s so confusing and by confusing we mean predictable and damn annoying.

I thought Trump worked for Putin? pic.twitter.com/rm8ccRAFjk

— Jason Riley (@JRiles1) April 30, 2019

Well, see, he DOES but he’s trying really hard to make people think he doesn’t which is why he’s backing this ‘coup’ … you know what, we can’t even being to spin this spin.

How on Earth is this a coup?

Juan Guaidó is clearly the legitimate temporary leader under the Constitution.

— Andrew Follett (@AndrewCFollett) April 30, 2019

How on Earth is CNN taken the least bit seriously?

Im confused @CNN… Is Russia bad or good this week? Is Russia backing a socialist presidents in Venezuela? Is that good or bad this week?

— Honest Fraud (@stupidburns) April 30, 2019

We’ll have to check back later.

It is not a coup if the people in power are illegitimate. Please, stop calling this a coup.

— Grace P Bedoya (@BedoyaGrace) April 30, 2019

She said please, man.

Wait! What?????

For over two years you people at CNN have been telling us that Trump is a Putin puppet.

— AtticusLee (@AtticusLee6) April 30, 2019

You know, for a guy you all say is Putin's puppet, he takes pretty much the exact opposite action Putin would like in every single international situation that arises.

— Jim (@Ifitsthisname) April 30, 2019

How easy would Americans in the left, with whom I most times agree with, are eager to support “leftists” dictatorships just to play against the other party. It’s sad, and immoral. The people of Venezuela are dying everyday day and this has nothing to do with Trump. Shame on you.

— Monica (@Mucatian) April 30, 2019

People don’t matter to the Left anymore. All that really matters to them at the end of the day is taking Trump down.

It is not a coup. Maduro is illegitimate and is usurping the power. Journalists have to be objective in disclaiming news without instilling their own political views.

— arepaconhummus (@arepaconhummus) April 30, 2019

Ummm, Guaido is the legitimately recognized leader of the country…Sooooo, it's really not a coup. But I know you guys just pretend to be journalists at this point.

‘Caught lying in REAL TIME: ‘The Nation’ contributor takes Rachel Maddow APART for ‘Russia conspiracies’ in BRUTAL thread

Tue, 04/30/2019 - 15:24

Aaron Maté is a contributor at The Nation. We mention this because he’s not someone you would traditionally think of as being a part of the right-wing media and in fact, if you go to The Nation’s Twitter page it says, “The place for debate on the left.”

And whoa nelly, Aaron is definitely ‘debating’ on the Left with this thread about Rachel Maddow and her Trump-Russia conspiracy theories.

1/ If YouTube were to recommend your show, it'd be recommending the leading purveyor of now debunked Trump-Russia conspiracy theories, falsehoods & innuendo of the last 2+ years. Here's a sample:

— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019

Notice, he is responding TO HER for this entire thread.

2/ Just recently you were caught in real-time lying to your audience. You claimed Barr was handling the redactions by himself. But the chyron — on screen right below — told viewers the truth, that Mueller was in fact "assisting" w/ the redactions: pic.twitter.com/rTSAABngp2

— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019

Here, have some of our popcorn, this just gets better.

3/ There was that time in Jan 2017 when you speculated that Putin may use the pee tape & other kompromat to force Trump into withdrawing US troops near Russia. How did that one turn out? pic.twitter.com/XuXXagyCNb

— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019

About as good as the other Russian conspiracies she’s been pushing.

4/ BTW, just last week you falsely said that "the one thing I refused to let myself think about" was that Putin had tapes of Trump — the very prospect you had previously floated to posit that Putin may blackmail Trump into withdrawing troops. pic.twitter.com/xMC4uPrjSK

— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019

Yikes.

5/ Who could forget that time this past winter when you seized on life-threatening cold temperatures to fear-monger that Russia could kill Americans by knocking out their heat?pic.twitter.com/deo2H4SBBQ

— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019

Yeah, Rachel really is awful.

But you knew that.

6/ There was that time when you explored the scenario under which Putin "gives orders" to his puppet Trump at an upcoming meeting. Do you think Putin ordered Trump to stage a coup in Venezuela/try to kill the German-Russia gas pipeline/nix the INF treaty? pic.twitter.com/cbSrGt2xR3

— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019

Whoa boy.

7/ How about that time when you speculated — citing the Steele dossier — that Cohen billed Trump $50k for "tech services" to pay off Russian hackers? It was actually to pay a US firm (https://t.co/GGK6FQLvRJ). pic.twitter.com/TcqdN8mC4z

— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019

WOW.

Wrong, wrong, and wrong again.

We knew Rachel’s track record wasn’t great but yeah, wow.

8/ How about when you suggested that Putin has gotten Trump to "bleed out" the FBI? If Mueller and the FBI found proof of that, I missed that part of their report. pic.twitter.com/hFT0ByWzlQ

— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019

All we can say is, ouch.

Marco Rubio calls out CNN for its live coverage of Venezuela

Tue, 04/30/2019 - 15:13

Juan Guaidó, president of Venezuela’s National Assembly and the U.S.-recognized interim President of the county, announced this morning “Operación Libertad” which called on the military to rise up against the rule of Nicolás Maduro:

Pueblo de Venezuela inició el fin de la usurpación. En este momento me encuentro con las principales unidades militares de nuestra Fuerza Armada dando inicio a la fase final de la Operación Libertad.

— Juan Guaidó (@jguaido) April 30, 2019

Translation: People of Venezuela began the end of usurpation. At this moment I meet the main military units of our armed force initiating the final phase of Operation Freedom.

Pueblo de Venezuela vamos a la calle, Fuerza Armada Nacional a continuar el despliegue hasta que consolidemos el fin de la usurpación que ya es irreversible.

— Juan Guaidó (@jguaido) April 30, 2019

Translation: Venezuelan people we go to the street, national armed force to continue the deployment until we consolidate the end of the encroachment that is already irreversible.

Guaidó’s move has the support of the United States:

Today interim President Juan Guaido announced start of Operación Libertad. The U.S. Government fully supports the Venezuelan people in their quest for freedom and democracy. Democracy cannot be defeated. #EstamosUnidosVE

— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) April 30, 2019

To @jguaido, the National Assembly and all the freedom-loving people of Venezuela who are taking to the streets today in #operacionlibertad—Estamos con ustedes! We are with you! America will stand with you until freedom & democracy are restored. Vayan con dios! #FreeVenezuela

— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) April 30, 2019

Venezuelans have made clear that the current path toward democracy is irreversible. Venezuela’s military has a choice: embrace democracy, protect civilians and members of the democratically-elected National Assembly, or face more man-made suffering and isolation.

— John Bolton (@AmbJohnBolton) April 30, 2019

The situation, however, remains fluid at this time:

I spoke to @AmbJohnBolton this morning. The situation in #Venezuela is fluid and information is sketchy as social media has been largely shut down.

But the United States stands with the patriots of Venezuela fighting for their life, liberty and sacred honor. #OperaciónLibertad

— Rick Scott (@SenRickScott) April 30, 2019

This is the moment for those military officers in #Venezuela to fulfill their constitutional oath & defend the legitimate interim President @jguaido in this effort to restore democracy. You can write history in the hours & days ahead.

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) April 30, 2019

Report says even more military units are joining effort of Interim President @jguaido in #Caracas #Venezuela https://t.co/jxJpffKY8v

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) April 30, 2019

And Sen. Rubio is particularly unhappy with the way CNN is covering events:

Some of the most shameful reporting ever by @CNN right now. Calling what is happening in #Venezuela an “armed coup”. @jguaido efforts are supported by virtually every nation in the region. Grotesque.

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) April 30, 2019

Just saw @CNN shamefully call what is happening today in #Venezuela a “coup attempt” @jguaido is recognized as legitimate interim President of #Venezuela by constitution,over 50 countries & OAS.

The only coup is the one carried out by #Cuba in support of dictator #Maduro

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) April 30, 2019

Here’s what he’s talking about:

Don’t miss this: the US is now publicly supporting an armed coup in Venezuela. On the other side is a govt backed by Russia.

— Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) April 30, 2019

From CNN on the ground: Shots fired on streets of Venezuela outside Caracas’s La Carlota Air Force base, video shows. The situation is very tense.

Memo to CNN: It’s not a coup:

RT @SenTomCotton
"What’s happening in Venezuela isn’t a 'coup.' The legitimate government, recognized by the civilized world, is claiming its rightful power. The Maduro regime is a long-running coup & crime against the Venezuelan people, backed by Havana, Beijing, & Moscow."

Moby may have sexually assaulted Donald Trump, but he was ‘very drunk and high at the time’ so he’s not ‘100% sure it actually happened’

Tue, 04/30/2019 - 13:53

The Daily Beast ran an excerpt from singer Moby’s new memoir and it included this bit where he admitted that he may have sexually assaulted Donald Trump:

EXCLUSIVE: Moby, aka @thelittleidiot, recounts the time he drunkenly rubbed his penis on Trump: "I think I knob-touched Donald Trump.” https://t.co/gQs2EXH71I

— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) April 29, 2019

But he was “very drunk and high at the time,” so it may not have actually happened:

The degeneracy in this story was in the baffling/gilded category, with the aforementioned helicopter to Staten Island and a generic product launch party wherein I was dared to brush my drunken, flaccid penis up against Donald Trump’s suit jacket. Although, in the spirit of alcoholic disclosure, my caveat is this: as I was very drunk and high at the time I’m still not 100% sure it actually happened.

I drank a shot of vodka to brace myself, pulled my flaccid penis out of my pants, and casually walked past Trump, trying to brush the edge of his jacket with my penis. Luckily he didn’t seem to notice or even twitch.

I walked back to my friends and ordered another drink. “Did you do it?” Clarice asked.

“I think so. I think I knob-touched Donald Trump.”

You see, Moby was shaken up by 9/11, which he dealt with by getting drunk and rubbing his exposed genitals on people he didn’t like:

After September 11, 2001, the only way in which I knew how to process my grief was to stay drunk, do as many drugs as possible, and throw myself into whatever degeneracy flowed out of New York’s perpetually degenerate spigot. Sometimes the degeneracy was gritty and old school—cheap drugs in dive bars and sex in tetanus-y bathrooms. And sometimes the degeneracy was gilded—helicopters to Staten Island and parties with billionaires.

If you recall, Moby also once claimed that he had evidence that the now discredited Steele dossier was “100% real” and that President Trump was “being blackmailed by the Russian government, not just for being peed on by Russian hookers, but for much more nefarious things”:

Instagram Photo

And now we’ll go back to ignoring anything Moby says.

A.

Hat.

Natalie Weiner seems super proud of herself for yelling at a complete stranger who had the AUDACITY to wear a MAGA hat while attending a jazz concert of sorts. Imagine how small of a mind someone has to have to think it’s a good thing to harass someone over the hat they’re wearing.

Everybody say "hi" to Natalie. Natalie thinks it's cool to accost people who happen to have the nerve to think differently than her, then to larp about it on social media. This is what we call "attention whoring" in the twitterverse. So, in summation, don't be a Natalie. https://t.co/75F4VlLwYj

HOLY WOW! Alyssa Milano’s reported ties to ‘dark money’ political org explain SO MUCH (and NONE of it’s good)

Tue, 04/30/2019 - 13:22

Alyssa Milano has become a familiar face in political circles, much to our chagrin. Actually, we’re super thankful that she’s out there making a fool of herself most days because that’s a whole lot of job security for Twitchy editors.

According to Politico @Alyssa_Milano is aligned with Future Majority who is trying to rebrand the Democrats as moderate. She is a tool to try & fool those who care what Hollywood activists have to say. /1https://t.co/YFb0j2PkoQ

— Stacey (@ScotsFyre) April 30, 2019

From POLITICO:

A group of Democratic operatives are launching a $60 million political group with plans to reclaim values-laden terms like “freedom” and “opportunity” for their party ahead of the 2020 election.

The nonprofit organization, called Future Majority, plans to provide strategic advice to other Democratic groups, as well as branding efforts, communications and a “war room” that will debunk fake news and counter conservative social media. The group quietly soft-launched during the 2018 midterms and advised organizations including the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on how to message to voters.

But wait, there’s more.

Future Majority’s formation also highlights tensions within the Democratic Party over how to navigate money in politics in the 2020 election. The group will spend money through PACs but is initially organized as a 501(c)(4) political nonprofit — known to critics, including many Democrats, as “dark money,” with no disclosure of donors and limited disclosure of how money is spent.

You can read the entire article here, but Future Majority was part of the 2018 Congressional cycle that vaulted dozens of “moderate” Dems. /2https://t.co/eNNYzCSxH3 pic.twitter.com/VsRb4r8PU6

— Stacey (@ScotsFyre) April 30, 2019

We went to their site and found this …

URGENT.

Interesting.

As the article notes Future Majority is a classic “dark money” organization. This should be relentlessly hammered on given the Democrats rhetoric on campaign finance. /3 pic.twitter.com/jDOBCs2u2w

— Stacey (@ScotsFyre) April 30, 2019

Huh, we thought ‘dark money’ was a bad thing.

Who knew?

They are trying to “round out the message” as they did in 2018 & reclaim words like “freedom” and “opportunity” for the Democrats. Of course they want Biden. He is the only one not running in Bernie’s lane. /4 pic.twitter.com/bdEj2VEAtl

— Stacey (@ScotsFyre) April 30, 2019

Which is probably why Alyssa was working overtime to convince everyone Joe’s ‘touchy-feely affections’ aren’t super creepy

Further, and thanks to McCain-Fiengold, this is further evidence the c4’s have taken over the Democrat party. The DNC (the actual party) is actually stepping aside to let donor funded orgs set the strategy. /5 pic.twitter.com/IjHsyzWxxs

— Stacey (@ScotsFyre) April 30, 2019

Color us shocked.

SHOCKED!

Ok, not really.

The upside of all of this is these groups compete with one another & LOVE to talk about exactly what they are going to do. The @RNC & @GOPChairwoman must use this to their advantage. If they need help, my browser bookmarks are FULL of things they put on the interwebz. /end

Sounds like Alyssa may have some ‘splainin’ to do.

According to his letter, Rod Rosenstein is grateful for the opportunity to have served as deputy attorney general and has nothing but the highest regard for Trump and the DOJ:

‘Oh my God’! Laura Ingraham does NOT see Joe Biden being a 2020 threat based on this ‘sad’ speech

Mon, 04/29/2019 - 21:35

Joe Biden spoke at his first 2020 campaign rally today in Pittsburgh, and the former veep spoke as if the country has basically crumbled because of Trump:

HAPPENING NOW: Former Vice Pres. Joe Biden kicks off his 2020 presidential campaign with a rally in Pittsburgh, PA. https://t.co/Dq4ipN0rwH

— ABC News (@ABC) April 29, 2019

"My name is Joe Biden and I am Jill Biden's husband."
And with those words in Pittsburgh, the former Vice President removes his sportcoat and settles into his first 2020 campaign rally.https://t.co/0CRkXFqh3o pic.twitter.com/fJFvMs8Hfr

— The Lead CNN (@TheLeadCNN) April 29, 2019

Biden naturally took aim at Trump while choosing to forget who was in the White House for the eight years before Trump took office:

Joe Biden: "It's well past time that the minimum wage nationally should be a minimum of $15. It's well past time. It's time to start rewarding work over wealth."
Via CBS pic.twitter.com/feKVOzYfAk

— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) April 29, 2019

Some Biden policies mentioned in PA:
– Public option
– Reverse GOP tax cuts
– Eliminate cap gains loophole
– $15/hr min wage
– Prevent workers from being classified as "contractors"
– Reform non-poaching clauses
– Close stepped up basis, invest $ in higher ed
– Renewable energy $

— Jeff Stein (@JStein_WaPo) April 29, 2019

Biden also said the economy is lousy for the middle class and claimed that the GOP tax cuts for most Americans were a lie because the size of IRS refund checks are down:

"The stock market is roaring, but you don't feel it," Joe Biden says. "There was a $2 trillion tax cut last year. Did you feel it? Did you get anything from it? Of course not!" https://t.co/ZI7ug7NdHv pic.twitter.com/K5e58zRlN2

— World News Tonight (@ABCWorldNews) April 29, 2019

It was all too much for Laura Ingraham:

At his first rally, Joe Biden says "it's time to redefine what a successful economy looks like." How convenient now that the economy, by even the measures the Obama Administration used, is ON FIRE. #GoalPostsShifting #Uninspired

— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) April 29, 2019

Watching Dems try and convince Americans why an economy that’s on a roll isn’t in their best interests continues to be entertaining.

This @JoeBiden speech is…just…sad. "All of America has to be rebuilt." WHAT?!

— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) April 29, 2019

Oh no. Joe doesn’t have another “Recovery Summer” in mind, does he?

Joe Biden says we need to bring back the "dignity of work." Is he actually arguing that after 8 yrs under Obama, and only two under Trump, suddenly "dignity of work" has been destroyed? Wages are going UP, Joe!

— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) April 29, 2019

If anything Biden spent a half hour kicking Obama’s policies under the bus.

Oh my God, if this is really the best @JoeBiden can do, the Democrats are in trouble. It all seems tired and out of sync with the reality of this economy, esp wages & unemployment numbers. Dangling freebies to whoops and hollers. Hardly original.

— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) April 29, 2019

That’s really all the Dems have at this point, but Biden’s speech in particular sounded no different than what he was saying years ago.

Fire the speechwriter, @JoeBiden. And he's desperately trying to punch out lines loudly, which just ends up sounding strained.

— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) April 29, 2019

There was little in Biden’s speech that sounded any different than when he ran in 2007 or campaigned as Obama’s VP in 2008 and 2012.

Oh tater, NO! Brian Stelter runs cover for NYT publishing anti-Semitic cartoon, trips over their SECOND anti-Semitic cartoon

Mon, 04/29/2019 - 19:52

One for all and all for one! At least that’s what this tweet and story from Brian Stelter seem to convey since it appears he’s running cover for the New York Times staffers after the leftist rag published an anti-Semitic cartoon last week.

Don’t worry guys, the NYT staffers were alarmed and dismayed so don’t be mad at them about the awful, anti-Semitic cartoon and stuff!

Newsroom staffers at the @nytimes were alarmed and dismayed by the anti-Semitic cartoon in intl editions — AND by the paper's initial response https://t.co/b7hK9Gwyxm

— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) April 29, 2019

From CNN:

According to sources at the newspaper, who spoke on condition of anonymity, staffers were alarmed to see that the image was published — and dismayed that the initial editor’s note was so feeble. They wanted a more detailed explanation.

Anonymous sources. Sure.

Finally, on Sunday afternoon, the Times issued a statement saying “we are deeply sorry” for the cartoon, and “we are committed to making sure nothing like this happens again.”

Except it was more than just one cartoon, tater.

Should we tell him?

Maybe someone should get Brian a copy of the NYT from this weekend instead.

Seems like they have a repeat problem….https://t.co/uBWzSd4K3M

— Terry Banet (@tebsf) April 29, 2019

The took down one anti-Semitic cartoon just to publish another.

First-time shame on them, second-time shame on you, Bri.

So alarmed that it took TWO days to take it down.

— Fred Flickinger (@Flickfred) April 29, 2019

And then they put another one up.

So not only do you shill for CNN bias you an apologist for NY TIMES antisemitism. Good job.

— David Lerner (@EXstrategy) April 29, 2019

So tell us how The New York Times can publish anything after having only one editor look at it?

And then tell us again how journalism is not failing across the board.

— Aaron B Brown (@AaronBBrown) April 29, 2019

Little man, they knew what they were doing. It was done with intent

— Davie (@daviejew) April 29, 2019

Brian,

Honestly who in their right mind would publish such a thing much less make it?

Trump derangement syndrome is having a severe impact on the medias ability to think. Treatment should be collectively sought out.

— richard moore (@richmoore35) April 29, 2019

Stelter gonna have to work overtime carrying water for NYT on this one.

— Brad (@EastAug) April 29, 2019

Might need to eat his Wheaties for this one.

Ahem, Joe? Brit Hume DROPS Joe Biden with this BLAST from his past after he tells ‘The View’ harpies he always believed Anita Hill

Mon, 04/29/2019 - 16:58

Since Joe Biden announced he’s running for president it seems the most coverage we’ve seen about him is either from his own party trying to somehow get him out of the race OR from useless pandering talk shows like The View.

Joe went on the show and claimed he had always believed Anita Hill … there was one problem.

And he was far from the only one who thought so, despite the sanctified status she now enjoys https://t.co/p2RgFitxSI

— Brit Hume (@brithume) April 28, 2019

From The Federalist:

Former vice president Joe Biden repeatedly said on The View on Friday that he believed Anita Hill from the moment he heard her tale of sexual harassment by Clarence Thomas. But he previously told Sen. Arlen Specter that it was clear her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee included lies.

“Not only didn’t I vote for Clarence Thomas, I believed her from the beginning. I was against Clarence Thomas, I did everything in my power to defeat Clarence Thomas and he won by the smallest margin anyone ever won going on the Supreme Court,” Biden told “The View’s” Joy Behar.

Buuuut …

But in 1998, Biden admitted to Specter that “It was clear to me from the way she was answering the questions, [Hill] was lying” about a key part of her testimony. The exchange was published in Specter’s 2000 memoir, “Passion for Truth: From Finding JFK’s Single Bullet to Questioning Anita Hill to Impeaching Clinton.”

Oopsie.

We feel like we write that word a lot these days when we talk about Democrats …

Ruh-roh, Joe … and oopsie.

Anything to win… ANYTHING!

— Cyndi Bradley (@cyndi_bradley) April 29, 2019

Duh. He’s a Democrat.

Stuck on STUPID –> David Hogg’s garbage take on Trump and the ‘rise of white terrorism’ belongs in the Backfire Hall of Fame

Mon, 04/29/2019 - 12:17

Imagine how ridiculously dense someone would have to be to think comparing the rise of ‘white terrorism’ to Islamic terrorism was in any way a smart take to make. Granted, we’ve never accused David Hogg of being a great thinker but c’mon … this was bad even for him.

Add to that the 38k yahoos who thought it was worth fav’ing.

We weep for this country.

If 45 is so willing to say radical Islamic terrorism

Why does he refuse to talk about the rise of white terrorism in America?

— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) April 28, 2019

Harvard sure can pick ’em.

Guess the new thing on the Left is to add the word ‘terrorism’ to groups or people, events, and/or things they don’t like. We’re waiting for the rise of Pro-Tax-Cut Terrorism … you know what, we shouldn’t give them any ideas.

Because white terrorism isn’t on the rise, you shameless hack!

— Erik Rush (@erikrush) April 28, 2019

Bingo.

Why don’t you compare the body counts (numbers of victims) of those killed by “white terrorism” and those killed by radical Islamists? Then you’ll figure out why one is much more frequently mentioned than the other.

Also, everyone knows that MMFA writes your tweets. https://t.co/vnlOecLHNX

— Ian McKelvey (@ian_mckelvey) April 28, 2019

That would explain a lot.

Yet people are still quick to jump to his defense because he is just a “kid”. But truly the stuff he says just makes me cringe. There are people that argue intelligently that I disagree with. He is not one of them!

— Stevan Porter (@Porter4Us) April 28, 2019

David hasn’t been ‘just a kid’ for almost a year now and he wouldn’t know an intelligent argument if it fell out of the sky, landed on his face, and started to wiggle.

Gaslighting in progress: Ilhan Omar, Bernie, CNN and others are covering for Ralph Northam’s abortion extremism to bash Trump

Mon, 04/29/2019 - 00:20

So, it looks like Dems and the media are really going all-in on this and will just pretend that Virginia’s Democratic governor didn’t say the exact thing that President Trump repeated at his rally in Green Bay this weekend:

Life finds a way…again! Environmental alarmism, emperor penguin edition

Sun, 04/28/2019 - 22:13

There’s a new story flying around from The Independent on a colony of emperor penguins that was “effectively wiped out overnight” after a storm broke up the ice they were nesting on in Antarctica. Scientists say they see no signs of breeding in the area:

The world’s 2nd largest emperor penguin colony is believed to have been effectively wiped out overnight, with 1000s of chicks drowning after an ice shelf in Antarctica collapsed. Since the collapse in 2016, no breeding has been detected in the area. https://t.co/owl72VmAIF

This is so sad, the people who didn’t read the article tweeted:

This has me in tears.

And it’s the “end of the emperors”:

Dumb humans, obviously!

This is so very tragic, the loss of these majestic creatures. What a mess we are making of our planet. https://t.co/Ot9aPb8a6G

Now for the good news! The birds are safe and happily breeding at a nearby colony, which you’d know if you read the article and not just the headline:

While the Halley Bay colony has now all but disappeared, the nearby Dawson-Lambton colony has markedly increased in size, indicating that many of the adult emperors have moved there, seeking better breeding grounds as environmental conditions continue to change.

The birds’ rapid relocation to a more stable breeding ground is significant and is encouraging, the scientists say, as until now it was not known whether the penguins would seek alternative sites in response to significant changes in their local environment.

Life finds a way . . . again!
