Two Trump helicopters crashed in past 9 months

According to an April 23, 2016 New York Times report by Susanne Craig, Donald Trump owns an air fleet comprised of:

  • A 1991 Boeing 757 jet, which Trump had bought used in 2011 from billionaire Paul Allen.
  • A smaller jet, Cessna 750 Citation X, used on the campaign trail, which Trump also had bought used.
  • Three helicopters: two 1989 Sikorsky S-76Bs, and a 1990 Sikorsky S-76B, all purchased used.

In the space of just 9 months, two of President Trump’s privately-owned helicopters crashed or nearly crashed. In both incidents, Trump’s family members were on board. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Both incidents have received scarce media coverage.

You can be sure that if this had happened to helicopters involving Obama, it would be non-stop headline news.

(1) Daily Mail reports that on the afternoon of March 15, 2018, a helicopter heading for New York that was carrying Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, had to turn back to Washington D.C. after suffering an engine failure, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing.

The chopper – one of the Trump Organization’s Sikorksy helicopters – turned back to Ronald Reagan National Airport shortly after taking off. Ivanka and Jared ended up catching a commercial flight back to NYC instead. Apart from the pilot, the only other person on board the aircraft was a member of their security detail.

(2) Nine months before, on June 15, 2017, one of Trump’s helicopters, carrying Donald Trump Jr. and two Secret Service agents, actually crashed. According to Page Six:

“One of President Trump’s beloved personal helicopters was involved in an accident last month in Manhattan, but the details are being kept strictly under wraps….

On June 15, a Trump chopper was involved in a crunch in Manhattan when its tail rotor hit a fence upon landing at the West Side Heliport alongside the Hudson River. Photos seen by Page Six appear to show that the rotor was completely sheared off. Witnesses say damage to the aircraft was enough to completely ground it, and it had to be hauled away for repairs.”

According to Daily Mail, the crash was kept very quiet. A crew immediately arrived at the crash site. They first disguised the word “TRUMP” on the side of the helicopter, then hauled the aircraft away.

Page Six immediately accused the crew’s action of being a vain effort to protect the president and his family from embarrassment. But Daily Mail disagrees:

“It turns out it was something far more that his detractors surely didn’t want to admit. In the months since then, sources close to the crash investigation have suspected that these repeat alarming helicopter malfunctions have been hushed up to prevent exposing a potential terrorist plot.

Radar Online reports:

The helicopter made a harrowing emergency landing on June 14, 2017 — yet another chilling example of the First Family under siege — and sources now believe the incident was intentionally kept quiet to deprive suspected saboteurs from publicizing their near-victory!

But Federal Aviation Administration records — revealed here for the first time — describe how a tail rotor on a Sikorsky helicopter owned by the Trump Organization suddenly flew off during a descent into NYC.

The helicopter was set to land after making a 230-mile flight from Washington, D.C.

Records show none of the passengers — Donald Jr., the agents and the pilot — suffered any injuries. But aviation experts told Radar the incident would have spelled certain death if the rotor had detached at a higher altitude.

“It wouldn’t surprise me that someone was trying to target the Trump family,” said Bart Rossi, a renowned political psychologist.

[…] Meanwhile, a Radar investigation has uncovered an alarming pattern of near-misses involving helicopters and President Trump.

The nightmare emergency landing in 2017 was eerily similar to a 1989 incident when a main rotor blade separated on a Trump Organization helicopter.

The aircraft crashed into a wooded area in New Jersey, killing two pilots and three Trump executives on board.

At the time, the future president acknowledged he would have been aboard had he not decided at the last minute not to fly!

The National Transportation Safety Board blamed the manufacturer for a scratch on the rotor for the fatal crash.

But Radar Online quotes former Bill Clinton henchman Larry Nichols (see “Bombshell: Long-time Clinton associate says he killed people for Bill & Hillary”) that the series of Trump copter crashes have a sinister whiff:

“Guys who have enough money to pull off a presidential run are a threat to the establishment. And that same establishment will try to murder the outsider and their families wherever they can.”

Since the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America, the Left — politicians, intellectuals, actors and pop singers — have made clear their deadly hatred for Trump, with incessant threats and calls for his assassination. See also:



Gun owner says he hopes owning AR rifles becomes toxic like wearing fur or owning ivory

steve hemmert turn in ar 15

Steve posing for a photo op to turn in his gun. You do your thing, I’ll keep mine, TYVM…

Since the FBI can’t keep up with all those “unhinged” people, maybe some folks just want the right to defend themselves as they choose? Just a thought.

Also: How insulting is it that you label responsible firearm owners as people with “dangerous” weapons? I’m not as dangerous as the “Lion of the Senate.”

From ABC News: Steve Hemmert lives a mile away from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.  He said Feb. 14 — the day when a former student gunned down 17 people at the school — was “surreal.”

Hemmert, who was a member of the Army Reserves, is familiar with guns. He said he used to enjoy going to the shooting range, sometimes with his teenage daughter, firing two of his AR-style rifles.

But now, after the Parkland shooting, the fun is gone.

And soon, too, will his guns: Hemmert sold the guns back to the Miami Police Department this weekend as part of its gun buyback program.

“It was like a transformation between thinking of guns as kind of a fun hobby, to my God, these exact types of rifles just killed kids in my community,” he told ABC News.

He continued, “I can’t imagine ever having any fun shooting those guns. I was almost embarrassed to own them because how insulting to the victims that I would even want to keep those things in my house.

Hemmert, who left the Reserves in 2005 and now works as a lawyer, published a picture of himself turning over two AR-style rifles to a Miami police officer on Saturday. He later shared an emotional post on his Facebook page.

“My daughter recently told me that her plan is to only wear sneakers to school from now on, in case she needs to run. And I realize that, unlike some of my neighbors, I am lucky to still HAVE a 14-year-old daughter,” he wrote.

Hemmert, 45, told ABC News that the shooting impacted his entire family, including his daughter, who attends a different high school.

“In the week after that [shooting], she said she went through each classroom and figured out where the best hiding spot was in each classroom,” he said. “It’s disgusting that our kids should even think about that stuff.”

Hemmert said he was always incredibly careful with his guns, breaking them down and storing them under lock and key. He realized there was no way he could guarantee that another person would take the same precautions.

That’s why he decided to participate in the Miami Police Department’s gun buyback program. Each gun the department received would be examined and possibly destroyed if found to be stolen or involved in a crime, officer Michael Vega told ABC News.

The Miami Police Department shared a picture on Facebook of the 128 firearms it received during the buyback.

Hemmert, who got a $250 Visa gift card for each of his guns, said he hopes that “owning ARs becomes toxic, almost like wearing fur or owning ivory. It just becomes socially unacceptable to own AR rifles.”

His emotional Facebook post has received more than 100,000 comments. While most have been overwhelmingly positive, he guessed 10 to 15 percent were “really ugly.”

“There are a lot of people that have a lot of guns that are really unhinged out there,” he said, referring to some of the people who have made threats against him and his family.

Hemmert said that one of the worst messages he received was a text by someone who threatened to rape Hemmert’s teenage daughter. “There are so many people saying so many crazy and scary things on the internet,” he said, adding, “I don’t know how the FBI could even keep up with all those people.”

Survivors from other school shootings have also reached out to him. Hemmert called their messages “humbling.”

“I think people want to believe that there’s a reasonable middle ground in the gun control debate,” Hemmert said.

He added, “Listen, these may be legal to own and they’re fun to own but they’re just too dangerous for the general public to have.”

Israel’s chief rabbi calls black Americans ‘monkeys’

In a sermon aired by the Israeli news site Ynet, one of Israel’s most senior religious leaders, Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, called black Americans “strange creatures” and “monkeys”.

See “Pope Francis is ashamed of the Cross, knows better than the Gospels”.

Ynet reports that Rabbi Yosef made the remark on Sabbath night, March 17, 2018, which marked the beginning of the month of Nissan, the first month in the Hebrew calendar.

A customary ritual during the month of Nissan is the blessing of trees. Addressing the halachic (Halakha is the collective body of Jewish religious laws) question whether to bless one or two trees, Rabbi Yosef offers examples of other blessings, such as the blessing of “strange creatures” that evoke attention or repulsion, rather than aesthetic pleasure. He says:

“Someone who sees strange creatures blesses them. You see a negro, bless him as an exceptional creature. Which negro? When his father and mother are white and he comes out black.”

In other words, “not every negro needs to be blessed”; only a black person who was born to white parents should be blessed. Yosef continues:

You go around in the streets of America, every five minutes you will see a negro. Do you bless him as an ‘exceptional creature?’ However, he should be a negro whose father and mother are white. We don’t say a blessing for every negro … He needs to be a negro whose father and mother are white … if you know, they had a monkey for a son, they had a son like that.”

A statement issued on Rabbi Yosef’s behalf reads:

“The words of the rabbi are quoted from the Babylonian Talmud in Berakhot. R. Joshua b. Levi said: ‘On seeing pockmarked persons one says: Blessed be He who makes strange creatures. An objection was raised: If one sees a negro … he says: Blessed be He who makes strange creatures…. Our Rabbis taught: On seeing an elephant, an ape, or a long-tailed ape, one says: Blessed is He who makes strange creatures.’”

According to Callum Paton of Newsweek, Yosef is the most senior representative of the Sephardic Jews, who trace their origins to the Iberian Peninsula, North Africa and the Middle East. Ashkenazi Jews, originally from Europe, are led by Chief Rabbi David Lau.

It is not the first time Yosef has caused controversy with his sermons:

  • In May 2017, Yosef compared secular women to animals because they dressed immodestly.
  • In March 2016, Yosef was forced to retract a comment that non-Jews should not live in Israel. He said he was speaking theoretically and in practice non-Jews could live in Israel if they kept religious laws such as not committing idolatry and not eating the limbs from a live animal. He also said non-Jews in Israel should serve Jews.

Actually, it’s not just blacks who are monkeys. According to the Talmud, aka Babylonian Talmud, which supercedes the Torah (or the Old Testament) in authority for Jews:

“All children of the ‘goyim’ (Gentiles or non-Jews) are animals.” -Yebamoth 98a

The Talmud is a collection of books written in Hebrew between the 3rd and 6th centuries as a codification of the oral law that Jewish rabbis claim had been handed down from Moses. The Talmud is blasphemous (Jesus is called a fool, bastard, trickster, who is boiling in excrement in Hell; his mother Mary is called a whore and bestialist), Jewish supremacist, racist (all Christians and non-Jews are sub-human animals), hateful, and many times worse than the Koran.

#MarchForOurLives: Remember Kate Steinle and those responsible for her death


Kate Steinle: Murdered by an illegal alien in sanctuary San Francisco

Remember this:

The government FAILED Kate, just like every single government agency failed Parkland students.

The government has FAILED those who live in strict gun-controlled Baltimore:

The government has FAILED those who live in strict gun-controlled Chiraq:

#MarchForOurLives: Why have you “cover stars” been silent in raising the voice for the victims of gun violence in Baltimore and Chiraq?

Why have you been silent in the death of Kate Steinle? Kate was an AMERICAN CITIZEN killed by an illegal alien enabled by the government’s actions.

Blame the NRA all you want. Doesn’t change the facts that 1) criminals don’t follow the laws, 2) government agencies may fail to protect citizens, 3) when seconds count the police are minutes away (and even if they are on site they still may cower) 4) police do not have a Constitutional duty to protect you and 5) because of reason number 3 we need the Second Amendment for self defense.

Remember Kate Steinle today.


Michigan kindergartener sodomized by 4 classmates

America is breeding monsters.

Grandville is a suburb of about 15,378 people in Grand Rapids, Michigan. 92% of the city’s 15,378 residents (2010 census) are white, 2.2% black.

John Hogan reports for ABC13, March 22, 2018, that a Grandville kindergarten student was sodomized for months by four fellow classmates, according to a 23-page federal lawsuit filed this week in Grand Rapids by the boy’s parents.

The kindergarten is the Century Park Learning Center, Grandville, Michigan — a public K-6 school with 519 students, 80% of whom are white, 8% Hispanic, 6% Asian, and 3% black. (Source)

The boy is identified in court documents by the alias, Jimmy Doe.

According to the lawsuit:

  • The sexual assaults began in fall of 2014 when Jimmy Doe was five years old, and continued until April 2015.
  • During kindergarten teacher Hillary Huberts‘ classroom “free time” (whatever that means), four boys took Jimmy to the mudroom area of the classroom where they touched and sodomized him and took photos of his genitals using classroom iPads. Images were continuously deleted to create space for additional photographs “each time they attacked Jimmy’’.
  • The photos were disseminated to other students, which led to Jimmy being continually harassed, forcing him to dig hiding places beneath playground equipment where he would “cover himself with mulch’’.
  • “The assailants told Jimmy that if he did not cooperate with them, or if he told about the touching and pictures, they would not be his friends and they would say the sexual activity was Jimmy’s idea.’’

Jimmy Doe’s parents noticed both a physical and emotional deterioration in their son, who was born in 2009. They raised concerns during a parent-teacher conference, but school officials did not protect the boy and turned a blind eye to the abuse once it was brought to light:

(1) When the boy’s mother asked for a police investigation, she was told by Principal Tonia Shoup that an investigation had already been completed and found “no indication of coercion or assault.’’ Shoup told the boy’s mother that she had interviewed the four boys involved in taking the photos, and that the four boys denied assaulting Jimmy and that it had been Jimmy’s idea to display his genitals in the classroom and to having his pictures taken.

(2) In a subsequent meeting with then-Grandville Superintendent Ron Caniff and Assistant Superintendent Scott Merkel, the parents were told the pictures had been deleted “and they could move Jimmy to another school district if they wanted.’’ Caniff and Merkel “stressed that the pictures needed to be viewed in the context of kindergarteners’ normal curiosity and suggested that if the parents insisted on pressing the matter, Jimmy would be the one to be disciplined as he was the only child whose genitals were photographed.’’

Caniff, who is now superintendent of Kent Independent School District, issued a statement refuting the allegations:

“At the time I was at Grandville Public Schools, there was never any suspicion, suggestion or complaint expressed about inappropriate physical contact between the students involved in this matter, nor did the investigation indicate any concerns in that regard. As I read through the complaint, there are several allegations that will be refuted, but since attorneys are involved, that will occur in due course through the legal process. Beyond this, I do not have more to add at this time since this is a pending legal matter.’’

For his part, the current Grandville Public Schools Superintendent Roger Bearup released a statement, saying the district cannot respond in detail to the allegations:

’’However, we assure you that our focus is and always will be on the safety and care of every student who walks through our doors. Litigation is meant to be an avenue to the truth. We patiently wait for that truth to be revealed. Until then, we will have no further comment.’’


Baltimore suffers steep population decline according to new Census data

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh

Heckuva job mayor!

Gee, I wonder why…

From Baltimore Sun: Baltimore saw another year of steep population losses with nearly 5,300 people leaving the city, according to new estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.

The official estimate of Baltimore’s population now stands at 611,648, down more than 9,000 since the last full Census in 2010.

The Census Bureau estimates that Baltimore’s population had started growing again this decade following years of declines, but the growth stalled in 2015 and appears to have been more than entirely wiped out.

The Census Bureau estimates population on an annual cycle that runs between July 1 and June 30. The most recent estimated decline in Baltimore is offset somewhat by the bureau revising up slightly its estimate of the city’s population in 2016.

The 2015-2016 decline was especially sharp and came after a year in which the city was shaken by rioting and a spike in crime. Mayor Catherine Pugh largely shrugged those figures off at the time, but the new numbers indicate it was not a single-year blip.

Pugh could not immediately be reached for comment.

Annie Milli, the director of Live Baltimore, an agency that works to get people to come to the city, said she’s not overly concerned by the figures. She said other numbers suggest the housing market in the city is still healthy, with home sales up, new apartments coming online and the number of vacant homes stable.

“It’s an unexpected result from our perspective,” she said.

Milli said the numbers don’t necessarily suggest that entire families are picking up and moving out of Baltimore but could show that a few members of families might be leaving while others remain.

Milli said she’s optimistic for the future because other data indicates young people are moving into the city. “Those are people who have the opportunity to fall in love with city life and be converted into city dwellers,” she said.

Baltimore’s decline last year represents the second biggest decrease of any county-level jurisdiction in the nation. Only Cook County, home to Chicago, saw more people leave — and with an estimated 5,231,356 residents, it is much more populous than Baltimore.

#LoveTrumpsHate: Ivanka Trump visits Iowa salon, liberals vow to boycott business

ivanka trump hair salon

Salon Spa W Facebook photo

Jeez, can’t a girl get her hair done without it causing an uproar?

Apparently not…

Unlike the butt hurt libtards, the salon owner took the high road.

From Fox News: An Iowa salon received major social media backlash this week after posting a photo of Ivanka Trump when she visited the store to get her hair styled before an event.

Salon Spa W, in Des Moines’ East Village, posted a picture Monday on its Facebook page of the first daughter, who was in town to tour Waukee school district’s Aspiring Professional Experience program (APEX), with Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, the Des Moines Register reported. Reynolds was standing next to Trump in the photograph.

“Our Monday kicked off with styling Ivanka Trump for her visit to Iowa! We [love] supporting women in politics,” the salon wrote in a caption on Facebook, which has since been edited.

Despite the salon’s excitement, hundreds of followers lambasted the business for styling the White House adviser and threatened to never return. Some people said the photo was “f—ing gross” and vowed to unfollow the page.

“I agree with previous posters…this is NOTHING to be proud of,” one woman wrote.

Another Facebook user commented, “Will never book an appointment at this salon again. Total bum out. This salon employs hetero/non-hetero individuals and this just truly sucks. The fact that Salon Spa W was inclusive was always a big A + to me. You put your money where your mouth is as your vote. I loved this salon. I’m so, so disappointed and I can’t imagine how your non-cisgender employees/clients feel. Fail. Won’t ever be back.

“You will never get my business based on this one post,” a woman wrote, garnering dozens of “thumbs up” and “heart” reactions from users.

Some clients said the salon “should know better” than to serve Trump, while others said they lost all respect for the employees. Several people did come to the salon’s defense, however, and said they were “proud” of the business’ achievement.

China Wong, the president of Salon Spa W, released a separate statement on Tuesday defending her choice to style Trump. Wong said salon employees were “taken aback” by the negative response.

“We believe everyone matters and deserves our indiscriminate care and kindness,” Wong wrote in the statement. “We were taken aback by the response to the image below of our Governor with Ivanka Trump who received services from our salon. We also recognize impact matters more than intent. While we are not a partisan organization we do see it as part of our mission to welcome people to Des Moines and serve everyone. We share images of our clients, some that are recognizable public figures, to showcase our work.”

Wong said her business has served prominent musicians, actors, Broadway stars and politicians, including former President Barack Obama, over the years. The salon is near the State Capitol and Civic Center.

“We also serve you –– our beautiful, diverse and passionate community. We proudly share our work and celebrate all of you because our purpose is making people look and feel beautiful,” Wong concluded. “Again, we believe everyone matters and deserves our indiscriminate care and kindness.”
