    Funny how the British and liberals in general are concerned about Trump's "breach of protocol" and show little or no respect to the President of the United States nor to his aides. The protests in restaurants and at the homes of aides needs to be brought to an abrupt halt. The whole world knows that the disrespectful treatment of the President and his aides has been wrong. Strzok and his ilk know they're wrong and must be punished for direct attempts to overthrow rightful election results and must be put in prison. ALL of this poor behavior needs to be...

    Progressive activists mobilized again Wednesday and succeeded in ruining everyone’s day, as usual. This time it was a protester who climbed the Statue of Liberty’s base and dodged police for hours, forcing the evacuation of Liberty Island on the Fourth of July. The protester wore a “Rise and Resist” T-shirt, and was complemented by some other pro-illegal immigrant protesters who were arrested for unfurling a banner reading “Abolish ICE.” National Park Service officers arrested at least seven, charging them with staging an “unlawful protest” on the national landmark. The organization “Rise and Resist” claimed responsibility for the banner protest, but...
  • A Fascist Right -- or a Hysterical Left?

    If Trump's supporters are truly "a basket of deplorables ... racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic" and "irredeemable," as Hillary Clinton described them to an LGBT crowd, is not shunning and shaming the proper way to deal with them? So a growing slice of the American left has come to believe. Friday, gay waiters at the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, appalled that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was being served, had the chef call the owner. All decided to ask Sanders' party to leave. When news reached the left coast, Congresswoman Maxine Waters was ecstatic, yelling to a...
  • DOJ: Protestors Interfering With Pipeline Construction Will Be Prosecuted

    The U.S. Justice Department will begin prosecuting climate activists and protestors that perpetrate violence and destruction towards pipelines or other oil infrastructure to make their political points, Reuters said in a new report. “While we are strong advocates for the First Amendment, violence towards individuals and destruction of property are both illegal and potentially fatal,” a letter from the DOJ states. The document is a response to an official letter cosigned by 84 congressmen asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions about his department’s planned response to oil infrastructure attacks led by protestors, specifically those that shut pipelines in October 2016.

  • Minnesota Deals New Blow To Enbridge Pipeline Project

    09/12/2017 8:59:57 AM PDT · by bananaman22 · 12 replies ^ | 12-09-2017 | Irina
    Minnesota’s Department of Commerce dealt a blow to Canadian pipeline-maker Enbridge with a report that said the replacement of the Line 3 pipe that runs through the state is unnecessary, as is the pipe itself. Line 3 brings in crude from Canada to a terminal in Wisconsin and passes through northern Minnesota. Enbridge plans to replace the pipeline, which was built in the 1960s, with a new, extended one. This will cost some US$6.5 billion, but environmentalists and the state government believe it will threaten water resources in the area.

    """Police Union President Calls Black Lives Matter Protesters Outside Philadelphia Officer's House 'a Pack of Rabid Animals'""" Philadelphia cops held a rally of their own Thursday night in response to a protest last week by local Black Lives Matter activists outside the home of a cop identified in a fatal civilian shooting. The rally was held at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 headquarters and featured several speakers. Emotions quickly escalated and FOP President John McNesby made one jarring statement. "When you go to work each day, you shouldn't have to worry that a pack of rabid animals will...

    PHOENIX - Phoenix police say they’ve arrested a man who allegedly kicked a can of tear gas at officers after the President Trump rally earlier this week. Police shot the man with a pepper ball moments after he kicked the canister. Police say 29-year-old Joshua Cobin has been arrested on three counts of aggravated assault on police and one count of unlawful assembly.

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    There are truths about Black Bloc protestors that have been widely ignored. One is that these are not “grassroots protestors”, they are paid provocateurs whose sole aim is to create violence in a situation where it previously didn’t. And another is the reason why their faces are covered. When these protestors gather we can usually assume that at least one of several things are going to happen: There will be physical assaults taking place. There will be property damage. There will be massive MSM coverage. Why is nobody asking the real questions about who these people are? If people protest...
  • Tucker Carlson Rips Ex-MSNBCer Krystal Ball's Absurd Impeachment Arguments

    05/19/2017 11:17:44 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | May 18, 2017 | Tom Blumer
    On the left, there is obsessive talk of impeaching Donald Trump. Despite the fact that the press reports which supposedly form the foundation of such talk are almost always based on anonymous sources, and despite the fact that the Trump administration has successfully refuted most if not all of them, the obsession continues. On his Wednesday night show, after successfully swatting away pathetic pro-impeachment arguments made by guest Krystal Ball and her citations of weak-kneed Republicans who can't seem to resist bending with the Beltway wind, Tucker Carlson got fed up. The segment (posted in full here) opened with a...

    The Republican-sponsored bill made any acts of violence towards police officers, firefighters, and members of the National Guard a class 3 felony, punishable by 5 to 20 years in prison, and a $100,000 fine. McAuliffe vetoed the measure because he wanted to include the same penalty for anyone inciting violence due to someone’s “race, religious convictions, color, sexual orientation, or national origin,” he said in a statement. . . . Republican Delegate Scott Lingamfelter slammed McAuliffe’s decision, calling the governor’s decision “disgusting.” “They’re putting their lives literally on the line to protect the public, and anyone who would murder them,...

    Protesters held a "Queer Dance Party for Climate Justice" in front of Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner's house in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. Video posted to social media by Ashley Rae Goldenberg of MRCTV shows participants gathered in front of the Kalorama neighborhood house chanting, "Ivanka Trump, come dance!" The group also gathered in front of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's home nearby. . . . The rally caused such a racket that at least one neighbor confronted protesters. Video shows the man saying he's an 82-year-old man who lives in the neighborhood before telling one person in attendance...

    <p>LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A federal judge said in a ruling that then-candidate Donald Trump incited the use of violence against three protesters when he told supporters at a campaign rally a year ago to "get 'em out of here."</p> <p>U. S. District Judge David J. Hale of the Western District of Kentucky also wrote in an opinion and order released Friday that because violence had broken out at a prior Trump rally and that known hate group members were in the Louisville crowd, Trump's ordering the removal of an African-American woman was "particularly reckless."</p>

    Relying upon a technique rarely seen in political journalism these days, anonymous and nebulously described sources, BuzzFeed, hot off its tour de force in releasing the Trump “dossier” now has another scoop? Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA — which Trump said he would rescind on day one — is rough political terrain for the White House. Conservative media and elected officials see it as a rare hardline immigration promise the administration hasn’t kept, and the White House is kicking it down the road for as long as officials can. But according to two sources who regularly speak with...

    A pro-Trump rally at the University of California, Berkeley turned into a violent, bloody riot Saturday evening. The civil disturbance led to several attendees in pro-Trump clothing and American flag regalia being assaulted. Police in riot gear, and even a man in a gas-mask looking helmet and makeshift shield with an American flag intervened after currently unidentified men were assaulted and beaten on the ground. Some Trump supporters were pepper-sprayed by opposition, according to Buzzfeed News.

    Mindless. They failed to stop the Keystone XL pipeline, which they said posed particular environmental hazards. They failed to stop the Dakota Access pipeline, which they say represents an adulteration of sacred Indian grounds. OK. Whether you agree with their objections to either pipeline (and I don’t), at least they offered some specific rationale for why they were opposed. It’s not as if they’re just going to mindlessly oppose every pipeline anyone ever proposes, because that would be nothing more than knee-jerk opposition to energy-related infrastructure driven by reflexive opposition to fossil fuels. You do that, no one is going...
  • The Purge of Christians across the Middle East: Where are the Protestors?

    In what must surely be one of the most disturbing massacres of people in recent years, the usual suspect protestors have kept their silence. The Christian population of Middle Eastern countries has fallen sharply over the last ten years (CNN suggests that in the city of Mosul, the Christian population has dropped from around 35,000 to 20), and while some of this can be explained by families fleeing violence and danger, the amount of Christians slaughtered for not being Muslim is alarming. In Iraq the Christian population has fallen from 1.4 million to under 300,000 in a decade. The picture...

    Union leaders in California continued a protest even after neighbors and police informed them they were at the wrong house because their target, Rep. Steve Knight (R., Calif.), had moved away months ago. The group of over 50 protestors, who arrived in Service Employees International Union (SEIU) vans, carried a fake coffin to the house to send a message that Knight's votes in Congress were "killing" them, according to a report in the local Antelope Valley Press. Police arrived at the scene to alert the union protestors that they were in the wrong place, but the activists—who had already been...
