Feckless: Samantha Bee says President Trump should be ashamed of behavior to hack Jim Acosta

From Hollywood Reporter: Sam Bee broke down the “mixed bag” of Tuesday’s midterm election on her 100th show Wednesday night, highlighting the Democrats’ re-taking of the House of Representatives and bemoaning the re-elections of Rep. Steve King and Rep. Duncan Hunter.

The Full Frontal host also addressed the spat that CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and President Trump had during a press conference on the midterms earlier in the day. During the fight, Trump told Acosta, “CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them.”

“No, we should be ashamed of you working for us,” Bee countered. “Oh my god! You are at work. This is behavior that would have gotten me fired from Tim Horton’s and they didn’t even fire me for turning their donuts into bongs.”

She later narrated the interior monologue of the press aide who tried to take the microphone away from Acosta, who held on. The aide later backed off and kneeled so as not to be in the way of cameras. “I hate this job so much, It’s horrible, and … plié,” Bee said.

At the top of Wednesday’s show, the Full Frontal host addressed the news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had resigned earlier that day at the request of President Trump, an expected shift after the midterms. “He wanted to leave to spend more time doing what he loves most — racism,” Bee joked.

Bee proceeded to tick off some of the positive outcomes of the election, including the fact that the Democrat-majority House will be in charge of the House Intelligence Committee and therefore be responsible for Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. She also said Rep. Maxine Waters, a favorite to chair the House Financial Services Committee, “can subpoena the f*ck out of Trump’s tax returns.”

More importantly, Bee, added, addressing the GOP, “You can kiss your wall goodbye. Democrats are not going to give you an inch.” She then played a clip of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi praising a bipartisan approach to solving issues. “Guys?” she joked.

In other highlights Bee mentioned, the 2018 midterms ushered in a record number of women to serve in Congress and Florida passed Amendment 4, returning the right to vote to felons. “So I’m going to say something I rarely get to say: Good job Florida,” Bee joked.

Still: “I have to admit, I was a little disappointed in the size of the blue wave,” Bee said, noting that Democrats only gained 23 seats in the House. She also added in downsides to the night’s results that Rep. Steve King of Iowa and Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, who have both been accused of racism, were re-elected.

Bee concluded, “Last night was a mixed bag, but overall we should take it as a win” given the gerrymandering and voter suppression that Bee said was hurting the Democrats.

Later in her program, Bee also praised the campaign of Democrat Georgia Gov. candidate Stacey Abrams, who has called for a runoff in her fight against Brian Kemp, and listed “Bullshit we won’t forget” that included dirty tactics and off-color statements form Republican candidates during the election season.

American flag mural at NY pizza shop vandalized because it’s a symbol of “hate” and “oppression”

 

Photos from GoFundMe page

You want to see REAL oppression? Go live in the country under this flag.

Every day the left find another way to show their disdain for America.

From Fox News: An American flag mural in a small town in New York was vandalized after several protesters started calling for a boycott, claiming it is a symbol of hate and oppression.

The town of New Paltz rallied together a few weeks ago to help raise funds and show support for the patriotic painting proposed by La Bella Pizza Bistro owner Maria Lisante to cover a rundown brick wall on the side of her building, which is across the street from an elementary school. Just days before the mural was completed, it was defaced.

Luitenant Robert Lucchesi told Fox News that police are still actively investigating the case after the graffiti allegedly appeared Monday night.

Joey Garcia, a New York state corrections officer and Army National Guard veteran who organized the rally to support the flag, told Fox News he believes the perpetrator is not only disrespecting the flag but the military and country as well.

“I’m saddened and disappointed,” said Garcia. “It’s one thing to disagree with something but it shouldn’t mean that…you must destroy it. I feel bad for the artist who has put so much time and effort into this painting.”

Although there has been pushback, Garcia said La Bella’s has received a lot of support from across the nation since the pro-flag walk.

One is Lisa McGovern, who fell victim to a yard sign-stealing SUNY professor.

“I felt like it was a little over-the-top that people were saying it is offensive,” McGovern said. “It’s a symbol of our country. It’s non-political and for people in a small town trying to get a small business shut down is a little outrageous. People should be supporting small business, not trying to get them shut down.”

The owner’s GoFundMe page for the mural was originally set at $8,000 but was increased to $12,000 “due to the overwhelming support and patriotism of our community and country” to “help fun paint, materials, future maintenance and display lighting to increase visibility,” Lisante wrote. As of Wednesday afternoon, they have raised more than $7,500.

Oregon counties pass Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance

Oregon Live displays their liberal bias right in the first sentence.

As in many blue states, once you get out of the progressive-infested metropolitan cities you’ll find many Second Amendment supporters.

From Oregon Live: The so-calledSecond Amendment Preservation Ordinance” declares that those living in counties that approve it have the right to own semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, regardless of state or federal law. The measure appeared on the ballot in Baker, Columbia, Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, Lake, Lincoln, Linn, Umatilla and Union counties.

The ordinance also empowers sheriffs in those counties to determine if state and federal gun laws are constitutional and whether to prohibit local resources from being used to enforce them.

Partial returns show that the measure passed in all but Jackson and Lincoln counties.

The effort was organized by an Oregon gun rights group called the Committee for the Preservation of the Second Amendment. But it drew broad support among members of two militia groups, the Three Percenters and Oath Keepers, who campaigned and organized for the ordinance across the state.

President Trump takes on CNN’s demorat hack Jim Acosta who is now banned from White House

 

During this feisty presser yesterday, CNN hack Jim Acosta put his hand on a young staffer’s arm to try and stop her from doing her job. See the video here.

Sarah Sanders announced last night that Acosta has been banned from the White House until further notice. From her tweets:

We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter’s colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question.”

Expect Acosta to be on a massive, whiny rant for the next few days (heck more like the rest of President Trump’s presidency).

MS-13 gang member sentenced to decades in prison for role in 2015 murder

From Fox News: A member of the violent MS-13 street gang was sentenced Monday to more than 22 years in federal prison for his role in the death of a gang associate suspected of being an informant.

Jose Andrade, 27, also received three years of probation and will be subject to deportation to his native El Salvador upon completion of his sentence, according to federal prosecutors.

Andrade, who went by the nickname “Inocente,” pleaded guilty in March to charges of racketeering conspiracy involving murder and conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

Prosecutors claimed Andrade was involved in planning the July 2015 murder in Lawrence of a teenager who was wrongly suspected by gang members of cooperating with law enforcement. Investigators said Andrade planned to take part in the killing himself, but could not do so because he was arrested the previous month.

Authorities say that Andrade is one of 49 defendants who have been convicted as part of a crackdown on MS-13 by federal, state and local officials. Of those defendants, 16 have been found to have “committed or knowingly participated in murders.”

Tough on crime: Seattle tells business owner to clean up trash left by homeless or receive a fine

A homeless RV van that crashed into the West Seattle Health Club, causing $300,000 damage/West Seattle Health Club Facebook photo

You gotta hand it to the progressive bureaucrats in Seattle. They have figured out a way to continually get elected by NPC citizens who approve of politicians stealing and abusing their taxpayer dollars.

Deedee Sun reports for KIRO that a business in West Seattle, which has a lot of trash being dumped on its property by homeless people, is being told by the city of Seattle to clean up the trash or pay a fine. From the report:

The West Seattle Health Club blames homeless people and a group of RV residents who live nearby. But now, the city is telling the club — clean up the trash, or pay up.

The health club says it can’t believe the city is putting that responsibility at their doorstep.

Most of the trash is in the bushes and brambles behind the health club. “You can see all the garbage that’s all in there,” said Jason Davis, the club’s facilities manager.

“There’s a whole barbecue, TV stand, a nightstand down there, clothes, a bike,” Davis pointed out. There’s also plastic bottles, entire bags of trash, shoes – you name it.

“All of this comes from the homeless and all the RVs we have around here,” Davis said.

“It’s very frustrating. Especially when I walk around my building and have to clean up human feces and everything else,” he said. Davis said he and his staff also find needles every day.

On Wednesday, a city inspector came by the property after someone complained the blackberry bushes were encroaching on the sidewalk. KIRO7 found the complaint online. The complaint doesn’t mention the trash.

But the inspector, with the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspection, who came by to examine the bushes, noticed the garbage, and said the club needs to clean it up. If the club doesn’t, it will likely face a fine.

“It makes me very angry,” Davis said.

The club says it’s been dealing with the trash problem all year. After the nearby residents kept filling up the club’s dumpster, Davis said waste management brought a bigger dumpster.

The club’s vice president of operations, Dan Lehr, said its trash bill has increased by $500 per month. The club has installed a 7-foot fence to prevent access to the dumpsters.

Now it says the RV residents started have throwing trash around the fence and into the bushes behind the club.

Now the club is facing another big expense – cleaning up that trash. “It’s not our fault. You (the city) are allowing the RVs to be there,” Lehr said over the phone.

Plus the club is still dealing with the aftermath of a van that crashed into its building two weeks ago, setting one wall of the club on fire.

The club says it was a van-turned-RV and had been parked nearby for months before it crashed through the wall and put the club’s pool room out of commission. The damages from that are topping $300,000 and the club is still working on repairs. The pool will be closed for several more weeks.

“We’re dealing with increasing costs every day,” Lehr said.

The Department of Construction and Inspection said the club is responsible for the trash dumped on its property because municipal code requires owners to maintain their property. It gave the example, if someone dumps a couch on your front lawn, though unfortunate, you are still responsible for getting rid of it.

The department said if a trash problem is due to a specific issue “it can be discussed” and there may be other resources, but it wasn’t clear as of Friday afternoon if any of those resources would be available to the West Seattle Health Club.”

GOP maintains control of Senate; great news for the “conservative judicial train”

Last night the GOP likely extended (at the time I scheduled this blog post) its majority in the Senate.

Key republican wins included:

  • Mike Braun in Indiana
  • Kevin Cramer defeated Heidi Heitkamp (who voted against Kavanaugh) in North Dakota
  • Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee
  • Josh Hawley defeated Claire McCaskill in Missouri
  • Rick Scott in Florida

This win is very important to keep control of the appointment of judicial nominees since the Senate confirms federal judges and – most importantly – SCOTUS nominees.

The SCOTUS is leaning more conservative with the appointments of Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.

Considering the health condition and age of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there is a very good chance that President Trump could have the chance to nominate another conservative to the SCOTUS.

Lindsey Graham tweeted the following last night:

  • “One of the reasons we are winning big in the Senate tonight is because of the way Democrats treated Brett Kavanaugh.”
  • The conservative judicial train will keep running. President Trump has a lot to be proud of … without him I don’t think we would have had the night that we had.” response on Fox News”

Good news last night, very good news indeed.

Louis Farrakhan leads “death to America” chant in Iran

Shocker, not.

From Fox News: Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who recently compared Jewish people to termites, led a “Death to America” chant Sunday during a solidarity trip to Iran.

Farrakhan’s trip came ahead of the Trump administration’s re-implementation of U.S. sanctions against the Islamic Republic on Monday.

Speaking to law school students at the University of Tehran, the 85-year-old Farrakhan said “America has never been a democracy,” and also led a “Death to Israel” chant at the end of his talk, according to Iranian news agencies.

“Today, I warn the American government that sanctioning Iran is a big mistake,” he said at a meeting with the Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezaei. Farrakhan noted his belief America is conspiring against Iran.

Farrakhan’s trip coincided with the 39th anniversary of the 1979 seizure of the U.S. embassy in Tehran, when more than 50 American diplomats and civilians were held hostage for 444 days. The incident kicked off the Islamic Revolution, and Farrakhan told an Iranian audience that black Americans should be considered among the revolutionaries. The infamous activist cited the actions of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khomeni, who ordered the release of black Americans among the 1979 captives.

Video of Farrakhan leading a “Death to America” chant once again sparked calls for Democratic leaders to distance themselves from the controversial figure. Several prominent Democrats, including former President Barack Obama, have interacted or taken pictures with Farrakhan.

Donald Trump Jr. slammed Democrats Monday on Twitter. “When will the democrats disavow this guy? Answer: NEVER,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz called on “all decent people” to condemn Farrakhan after he tweeted he wasn’t anti-Semite but “anti-termite.”

“Nazis use the word ‘termites’ to dehumanize Jews and accuse them of destroying everything good about the world,” Dershowitz explained on “FOX & Friends.”

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, known as America’s Rabbi, also called on leaders to condemn him. “A new low for arch Jew-hater Farrakhan,” Boteach tweeted. “Who has heard of an American going to a foreign country and chanting ‘Death to America?’ Where is Bill Clinton who appeared with him recently, and Barack Obama, photographed with him, and Cory Booker to condemn him?

Farrakhan has previously said “powerful Jews are my enemy” and “white folks are going down.”

Linda Sarsour, a Women’s March co-founder and pro-Palestinian activist, has repeatedly praised Farrakhan and refused to condemn him. Tamika Mallory, another Women’s March leader, called him the “GOAT” or “Greatest of all time,” and served as a national organizer for his “Justice or Else” rally in 2015.

Israeli activist, Hen Mazzig, tweeted out video of the “Death to America” chant. “Nothing, Linda Sarsour?” Mazzig wrote.

NY demorats push for social media review as part of firearm background check

From New York City Patch: Two Brooklyn politicians want cops to examine New Yorkers’ online activity to prevent more hate-fueled tragedies like the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre. State Sen. Kevin Parker and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams proposed legislation Friday that would incorporate social media accounts into background checks for gun buyers.

They argue doing so would help law enforcement authorities spot dangerous people like Robert Bowers, who reportedly declared his hatred for Jewish people online before allegedly killing 11 people last Saturday.

“You would have thought this person was a model citizen until you examined his social media profile,” said Adams, a Democrat. “And you would have noticed he was not a model citizen, he was a broken citizen that was a time bomb that was waiting to explode.”

The pair of bills would empower the New York State Police and local departments like the NYPD to check three years of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat activity for anyone applying for a gun license in New York, Parker said.

Authorities would flag anything that is an “immediate threat to public safety,” he said. Gun buyers would also have to let police comb through a year’s worth of their search engine histories under the legislation.

The state’s SAFE Act — known as one of the nation’s toughest gun laws — requires instant federal background checks for all gun sales except those between immediate family members. But lawmakers have to do more in the wake of recent hate crimes such as the Pittsburgh shooting, Parker said.

“We certainly want to make sure that we’re adding to the protections that we need to make sure that people that we’re putting handguns and rifles and shotguns in the possession, that they in fact are the people that are using them in the right way,” Parker said.

The syngagogue massacre, in which 11 people died, came just a day after federal authorities arrested Cesar Sayoc, the Florida man accused of mailing bombs to high-profile Democratic figures. Sayoc had searched for his targets’ addresses online, federal prosecutors allege.

Lawmakers are still working out exactly how law-enforcement officials would go about accessing social media profiles that are not publicly viewable, Parker said, though he noted the legislation would require gun buyers to make their profiles available.

“We’re going look at what’s in the universe already and use that as one of the tools to determine the profile of a person who’s attempting to purchase a handgun,” Adams said.

The legislation also would not cover more obscure social media sites such as Gab, on which Bowers reportedly signaled that he was going to carry out violence. But Parker said officials wanted to go after the “low-hanging fruit.”

“How much is it going to cost in human lives if we don’t start checking people’s social media and trying to get a good sense of their understanding?” Parker said.
