Unhinged demorats: Woman punches man at his birthday party after mistaking his hat as a MAGA hat

Daniel Sprague Facebook Photo

From NY Post: A retired NYPD detective says a woman punched him in the face in Nashville over the weekend because his hat looked like a MAGA cap.

Staten Island resident Daniel Sprague told the Post he was celebrating his 50th birthday with his wife and friends at The Stage on Broadway on Friday when he was assaulted by a woman he didn’t know. “I was outside with my friends when some grabbed me from behind, spun me around and punched me in the face,” said Sprague, who retired from the NYPD in 2009.“At first I thought it was a friend until I got hit. I couldn’t believe someone could get that upset.”

In reality, his cap was emblazoned with the words “Make Fifty Great Again” — while his shirt was decorated with an American flag that read “Making America Great Since 1970.”

The bar’s bouncers booted them both from the property before he had a chance to call cops, but he filed a report the following day, he said.

“All night people were giving me thumbs up, smiles or some showing rage, until they walked up close and saw what hat said,” he recalled. “Then they would wish me a happy birthday.”

He was baffled by the vitriol and said he showed respect for politicians he didn’t like. “I love Trump, but I wouldn’t hit someone who had a Bernie hat on,” said Sprague, who spent more than two decades on the NYPD and retired as a member of the elite Emergency Service Unit. “Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I wasn’t an Obama fan but if he walked into a place where I was, I would show him and the office respect.”

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department confirmed that they took a report on the incident. “Suspect grabbed his hat from his head and punched him in the face,” according to the report. “He stated that when the suspect hit him in the face, he did not hit her back.”

Sprague recounted the incident on Facebook and said that he was waiting to hear back from detectives.

He also instructed readers not to react to negative comments on the post, because it might be one of his friends “breaking my chops because we have a great relationship and sense of humor.

“If it happens to be a fool or misguided snow flake’s comment, by arguing with them it will only encourage them to believe they know what they are talking about,” he wrote.

School calls police on kindergartner with Down Syndrome who pulls her gun finger on a teacher

From KTLA: A Pennsylvania elementary school called the police after a kindergartner with Down syndrome made a finger gun at her teacher. Officials concluded there wasn’t a threat, but the girl’s mother said they went too far.

Maggie Gaines called on the Tredyffrin-Easttown School District to update its threat assessment policy after her 6-year-old daughter Margot was questioned by administrators for making a gun gesture at her elementary school teacher and pretended to shoot her.

Gaines said it was a harmless expression of anger. But Margot’s school in southeast Pennsylvania determined her actions appeared threatening, so they conducted a threat assessment.

Administrators concluded that Margot made a “transient threat” and didn’t intend to harm anyone, but they still called Tredyffrin police.

The district said calling law enforcement is part of its safety protocol. But Gaines said that in her daughter’s case, the district misinterpreted its own policy. “It was very clear from the beginning that she didn’t understand what she was saying,” Gaines told CNN affiliate KYW. “Her having Down syndrome is one aspect of it, but I’m sure most six year olds don’t understand what that means.”

She said police filed a report on the incident that mentioned Margot by name. Tredyffrin police didn’t immediately respond to CNN’s requests for comment, but the school district told CNN that police didn’t create criminal or juvenile records for Margot.

The incident occurred in November, but Gaines didn’t take her grievances to the school board until late last month. An organization that advocates for local children with learning disabilities shared her statement to the school board.

“I am well aware that we live in a time when parents are concerned for their children’s safety in school,” she wrote in her letter to the school board, citing the mass shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. “But I also think our society and our schools across the country have overreacted with respect to perceived threats, resulting in even finger guns wielded by kindergarteners being viewed as cause to alert authorities.”

Gaines asked board members to clarify the district’s current threat assessment protocol.

Per the threat assessment materials the Tredyffrin-Easttown School District has made available online, a team of administrators, counselors, school psychologists and other staff will oversee the assessment and consult with law enforcement to determine the risk.

The district doesn’t define what constitutes threatening behavior other than that it “appears to be a threat to students or others.”

The school district told CNN it agreed to review the safety practices after Gaines brought them up at the school board policy meeting, though it disputed her characterization of how police were involved in her daughter’s case.

“Requesting a police consultation allows agencies to confer and use the information they have to plan for appropriate supports,” the district said in its statement to CNN. “It is not the same as making a police report and asking for an investigation.”

The consultation didn’t involve police with Margot, and her school didn’t request a further police investigation, the district said.

In 2019, Pennsylvania lawmakers passed a bill that required all schools in the state to establish threat assessment teams. According to state guidelines to help schools develop their own safety measures, the most commonly reported incidents can be handled by school personnel, without law enforcement intervention.

Environmental hypocrite Harrison Ford mocks “son of a b**ch” President Trump

Harrison Ford’s private jet

Ford is still whining about climate change even though he cannot sacrifice his private planes. Typical Hollyweird hypocrite.

From Fox News: Harrison Ford called Donald Trump a “son of a b—-” on Monday during an appearance on late-night TV where he also accused the president of rejecting science.

Ford appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday to promote his upcoming movie “Call of the Wild.” After showing a clip from the movie, Kimmel held up a poster for the film that featured fake reviews labeling “Call of the Wild” a “perfect call” in various ways.

The quotes were all jokingly attributed to Donald Trump in an effort to mock the president’s go-to line about his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which launched his impeachment inquiry in the House and subsequent trial in the Senate.

“That’s the first thing that son of a b—- has done for me … ever!” Ford said to thunderous applause and laughs from the crowd.

The Han Solo and Indiana Jones actor also claimed that science is “out the door” in the Trump administration. “We don’t believe in science anymore,” he joked. “Nobody here believes in science anymore, right?”

Ford’s comments about science come after an appearance in Mexico City earlier this month where he bashed America’s current leadership while praising young climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Our position in the world is tenuous because of our lack of moral leadership, basically,“ the 77-year-old actor said. “I certainly applaud with what Greta is inspired by, her activism or her role in representing the interests of young people and I admire her… her courage, her fortitude and also admire her capacity to express herself.”

Ford continued: “Science is being ridiculed by people in ideological campgrounds. They are refusing the wisdom, the discipline of science in favor of a political point of view. And that has to stop. And I believe young people throughout the world have known it has to stop and are capable and willing to make the sacrifices to make that happen.”

Wait, what? Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety now says we should drop active school shooter drills

Anyone who has a kid could have told you from the beginning that these drills did nothing but traumatize children. Unless you were a gun grabber intent on promoting an agenda.

But I guess SOME form of common sense has prevailed.

Active school shooter drill: Doing more harm than good/NBC Photo

According to NPR, the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association is calling for schools to reassess the use of lockdown drills.

From their report:

“In a white paper out Tuesday, the groups say they do not recommend active shooter training for students. And if schools do choose to do these drills with students, they shouldn’t be unnecessarily realistic and schools should give plenty of warning. Plus, they should be done with age-appropriateness and sensitivity toward children with special needs or those who have experienced trauma.

The group Moms Demand Action for Gun Safety in America, part of Everytown, focuses on raising awareness about gun violence. But founder Shannon Watts said she was increasingly hearing from parents whose children were terrified by active shooter drills. So, she started to look at emerging evidence that “these drills cause trauma, whether it’s anxiety or depression, sleeplessness, worsening school performance in kids.”

There are reports, Watts says, of drills getting “over the top” with things like teachers being shot with pellet guns. “When we have a fire drill in a school, we don’t set a fire in the hallway.”

Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, says making schools “safe and welcoming” is her membership’s “No. 1 priority.”

“Those terrifying and traumatizing drills — they have no basis in fact and they harm more than they have ever helped.”

In a 2019 research paper, James H. Price and Jagdish Khubchandani found a lack of empirical evidence in favor of active shooter drills and other “hardening” measures used in schools. Partly this is because gun violence in school remains very rare.”

Chicago man on probation for robbery charged with double homicide

What do you know…another criminal who didn’t follow the laws and received lenient punishment. It’s almost appears that Chiraq’s strict gun control laws are meant to punish law-abiding citizens.

Alvin Thomas/Chicago Police photo

From MyFoxChicago: A 20-year-old man on probation for a robbery conviction is now charged in connection with a Sunday robbery in Chinatown where two men were shot to death when they resisted, police say.

Alvin Thomas, of South Shore, faces two counts of first-degree murder in the early morning shooting Feb. 9 in the 2000 block of South Wells Street, Chicago police said.

Huayi Bian, 36, and Weizhong Xiong, 38, were standing in the parking lot of an apartment complex with a 44-year-old woman about 2:13 a.m. when a man walked up and tried to rob them, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The woman complied, but the men resisted, at which point the man fired multiple shots, police said. Both men were shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. The woman wasn’t hurt.

Thomas was arrested minutes later at 2:27 a.m. in the 2100 block of South Archer Avenue, police said. He is due for a bail hearing Tuesday.

At the time of his arrest, Thomas was on probation for a 2018 robbery charge in Chicago, according to county records. He was released on home electronic monitoring after posting a $5,000 bond, and pleaded guilty to the charge in July 2019. He was sentenced to two years probation with credit for 319 days already served, county records state.

While out on bond, Thomas was charged with manufacture and delivery of cannabis in February 2019, but the charge was dropped the next month, according to county records.

Another Hollyweird Hypcrite: Natalie Portman laments snubbed female directors as her own production company features just one female director — herself

Well, well, well…what do you know, we have another Hollyweird hypocrite!

Natalia Portman/Photo from Page Six

At the Oscars Sunday night, actress Natalie Portman made a “bold statement” about the snubbed female directors by wearing a cape that included all their names. Bold, indeed.

Portman wanted to recognize the women who were snubbed for their incredible work this year in her own “subtle” way. Subtle, indeed.

Even more subtle? Having your own production company that has only hired ONE female director: YOURSELF.

From Insider (via Yahoo): Natalie Portman wore a custom Dior gown complete with a cape to the Oscars on Sunday, with the cape featuring the names of female directors who weren’t nominated for the best director Oscar.

However, Portman has come under fire with some people calling the Oscar-winner a hypocrite.

Twitter user OhMyMithrandir pointed out that Portman’s production company, handsomecharliefilms, has only ever hired one female director — Portman herself.

While there a total of eight films to date (with three more announced), the handsomecharliefilms has never hired a female director other than Portman.

Read the whole story here and see a list of Portman’s production company films here.

You’d think that Portman would hire other women directors in order to give them an opportunity to have their work recognized. Apparently her production company has a bias in only hiring men directors and, of course, herself.

Typical Hollyweird hypocrite.

If elected billionaire Tom Steyer vows to raise minimum wage to $22 per hour

Why stop at $22? How’d he come up with that magic number? I say take it to $25, $50, heck go all the way to $100!

From Fox News: Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer vowed to call for a $22 hourly minimum wage if he wins his longshot bid to unseat incumbent President Trump in November.

Steyer, a billionaire who founded investment company Farallon Capital Management in 1986 and sold it in 2012, is campaigning heavily on addressing climate change.

He made the announcement during a campaign block party on Sunday while campaigning in South Carolina, according to The Associated Press. Progressive candidates Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have released competing plans to hike the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

The federal minimum wage rate has remained at $7.25 per hour for the past decade, though 29 states and Washington have set it higher. (At the beginning of January, more than 20 states raised base pay even higher). The annual earnings for a full-time minimum-wage worker are $15,080, which is slightly above the federal poverty line for one person.

According to a Congressional Budget Office report published in July 2019, increasing the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour could result in 1.3 million workers losing their jobs. (The report estimated there’s about a two-thirds chance that somewhere between zero and 3.7 million workers would lose their jobs).

It could also have negative consequences for small businesses, which tend to operate in more competitive markets with thin margins.

“A higher minimum wage reduces the family income of business owners to the extent that firms’ profits are reduced,” the CBO report said. “Real income is also reduced for nearly all people because increases in the prices of goods and services weaken families’ purchasing power. Over time, as businesses increasingly pass their higher costs on to consumers, the losses in business income diminish and the losses in families’ real income grow.”

Over the past seven months, Steyer has poured $14 million into blanketing South Carolina’s airwaves with ads — a strategy that’s beginning to take hold. According to the RealClearPolitics voting averages, Steyer is polling second in the state, behind only former Vice President Joe Biden. Sanders is a close third.
