  • ...Massive support for Tommy Robinson and the lads in ‘Army Gate’

    10/11/2018 11:33:06 AM PDT · by Midwesterner53 · 2 replies ^ | 10/11/18 | Voice of Europe
    When Tommy Robinson goes anywhere, he is met with people who thank him, ask for selfies, genuinely love and appreciate all he is doing to fight for our women and children in this country. The mainstream media and the army making statements regarding Tommy Robinson as though it is fact, when in truth, it is fiction. So when he was at the motorway services off the M1 and by chance there were four coaches of young army squaddies there who greeted him, he had his photo taken with them. A simple selfie with some young lads. Young lads, aged 17,...

    President Trump, in an interview Thursday with “Fox & Friends,” rebuked Eric Holder for his call to “kick” Republicans and spurn civility, saying the Obama attorney general’s comments were “disgusting” and “dangerous.” “He better be careful what he’s wishing for,” Trump told Fox News. “That’s a disgusting statement for him to make.” Holder was captured on video speaking Sunday at a campaign event for local Georgia Democratic candidates. In the clip, he rejected former first lady Michelle Obama's famous call for civility in politics – adopting a confrontational tone that’s become increasingly fashionable amid the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight and...

    Full title: Tucker Carlson: Eric Holder has given Dems permission to get physical. Don't be surprised when they obeyYou may have noticed that the Democratic Party's daily talking points and a lot of the political coverage you see from news outlets are as in sync as the fabled Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. Everyone in this media-political chorus line is putting on precisely the same performance. Consider the question of angry left-wing mobs. They seem to be everywhere all of a sudden in this formerly placid country. They're yelling at Republicans in restaurants and airports. They're pounding on the...

    MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle called President Trump’s meeting with rapper and entrepreneur Kanye West an “assault on our White House,” after the two met about prison reform on Thursday. “Wow,” MSNBC’s Ali Velshi said, after showing video of West and Trump talking with reporters. Velshi then told people they could turn their volume back up, adding that the meeting was “bonkers.” “If you think you’re going to get a thoughtful play-by-play and political analysis, you’re not, because that was an assault on our White House,” Ruhle said.

    President Donald Trump met with hip-hop superstar and fashion mogul Kanye West at the on Thursday and spoke to the media in the Oval Office. “Trump is on his hero’s journey right now,” West said. “He might not have thought he’d have a crazy mother-fucker like Kanye West run up and support, but best believe — we are going to make America great.” West wore Trump’s campaign MAGA hat, urging Americans to rally around the president. He said that the hat was his “superman cape” allowing him to do whatever he wanted. “We have to release the love throughout the...

    (Newser) – Michelle Obama and George W. Bush have long had a special relationship, and at John McCain's funeral, a video of the former president handing the former first lady a cough drop as they sat next to one another in the crowd went viral. Obama, appearing on TODAY Thursday, explained. "It was a simple gesture," she said. As Bush got out a cough drop for his wife, Laura, "I looked over and I said, 'Hand me a cough drop,'" and he did. "President Bush and I, we are forever seatmates because of protocol. That's how we sit at all...

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection says Canadian citizens working in the cannabis industry should be able to enter the U.S. for reasons unrelated to the marijuana industry. The agency updated its website Tuesday, providing a measure of clarity after a vague statement last month left the industry and investors facing uncertainty about travel of any kind to the U.S. That statement sparked weeks of confusion and rumours that those tied to the cannabis industry could face lifetime bans from the U.S. It read that "As marijuana continues to be a controlled substance under United States law, working in or facilitating...

    While speaking at an event for Democratic candidates in Georgia, former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder suggested to the crowd to “kick” Republicans. Holder said, “It is time for us as Democrats to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are.” He continued, “Michelle says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. No. When they go low, we kick ’em.” Over the audiences cheers, Holder added, “That’s what this new Democratic party is all about. We’re proud as hell to be Democrats, we’re willing to fight...

    The RINO is an interesting political phenomenon and relatively new. It stands for Republican in Name Only, meaning that although the office-holder is a registered Republican, his voting record and public statements are too often aligned with liberal causes. Charlie Baker, the current governor of Massachusetts, is a classic example of the RINO. He openly and proudly supports the Bathroom Bill (a Mass. ballot question that will allow any person of any sex or "gender identity" to use any public bathroom he chooses); refuses to come out strongly against sanctuary cities; and will not champion the rollback of Massachusetts's onerous...

    Well, not exactly. The title is meant to illustrate the politically correct absurdities that have permeated our culture, the assault on history and eternal truths, the endless intimidation, and the endless apologies that result. All men are rapists, all women are victims, the Founders were slave-owners, and Winston Churchill was a genocidal maniac. Retired Astronaut Scott Kelly apologized Sunday after quoting social justice thought criminal Winston Churchill – even though he was attacking Republicans celebrating the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Kelly wrote: "One of the greatest leaders of modern times, Sir Winston Churchill said, 'in victory, magnanimity.'...

    U.S. Democratic Senate hopeful Kyrsten Sinema promoted events at Arizona State University featuring a lawyer convicted for aiding an Islamist terror organization and its leader. Sinema, a co-founder of the activist group Local to Global Justice, invited people in a now-closed Yahoo group to attend two events with Lynn Stewart, both in 2003. At the time of the invite, Stewart had been charged with helping her former client Omar Abdel Rahman, a radical Egyptian spiritual leader of a terror group, to pass on secret messages to his followers to commit terror attacks. In the first event’s invite, Sinema said the...

    A pair of Pennsylvania treasure hunters and their lawyer are accusing the FBI of playing games and acting suspiciously about a dig at a rural site believed to contain a massive stash of Civil War-era gold -- which may be worth up to $250 million. The accusations from Dennis and Kem Parada, and their attorney, Bill Cluck, came months after the bureau said it dug a hole in Dents Run and found nothing. The father-and-son duo felt convinced that area of state-owned wilderness northeast of Pittsburgh holds a hidden stash of gold and the pair claim the FBI went back...

    On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, while discussing Kanye West's recent alliance with Republican President Donald Trump, CNN host Don Lemon twice claimed without citing any evidence that Trump supporters in the past had "called him the N-word" when he criticized singer Taylor Swift and President George W. Bush. Additionally, CNN contributors Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer inserted racially tinged comments into the discussion as Setmayer called West a "token negro," and Sellers derided him as "what happens when negroes don't read." After noting that West is having a meeting with President Trump to discuss criminal justice reform, he played a clip...
  • NBC’s Guthrie to Michelle Obxxx: Should Dems Just Abandon Civility?

    During an exclusive live interview with Michelle Obama on Thursday’s Today show, co-host Savannah Guthrie touted the former First Lady’s “famous” motto of “When they go low, we go high.” However, the NBC anchor then highlighted other prominent Democrats recently calling for the party to abandon any pretense of civility when attacking Republicans and wondered if Obama’s saying “still stands.” “You know, and these are tough times politically, that we are living in,” Guthrie lamented. After reminding viewers of the then-First Lady warning supporters at the 2016 Democratic National Convention not to “go low” like Republicans, the morning show host...
