Hillary Clinton fell ‘running down stairs’, breaks toe

Brooke Singman reports for Fox News that yesterday, Oct. 15, 2017, while on her book tour in the UK, Hillary Clinton “apparently fell and injured her foot,” which led to her canceling or delaying interviews with British journalists before she resurfaced on a BBC program with her right foot in a cast.

Singman writes: “As with previous Clinton health scares, the details are a bit unclear.”

Hillary’s spokesman initially said she “twisted her ankle.” He tweeted a picture of Clinton wearing a special boot during an appearance on the BBC’s “Graham Norton Show.”

But according to the Daily Mail, Hillary gave an entirely different account. She said she broke her toe “running down the stairs” in heels and falling backward.

Hillary’s piggy toes

Born on October 26, 1947, Hillary will be 70 years old in ten days. No 70-year-old runs down stairs, heels or no heels. Certainly not 70-year-old Hillary Clinton who, during the presidential campaign last year, could barely walk or stand without being propped up.

Remember this?

February 4, 2016, in Charleston, SC.

And this?

April 16, 2016 at Southwest College, Los Angeles.

Or this?

How about this, on September 11, 2016?

Do you know how you can tell if Hillary’s lying?

Answer: Whenever she opens her mouth.

That woman can’t tell the truth even if it’s about a simple thing like whether she’d brushed her teeth this morning.

According to Hannity.com, Hillary “is currently receiving medical attention, and is expected to receive an x-ray” this afternoon “to determine if she should continue her book tour or cancel all future events.”

Corporate donors to Resist Trump movement & Antifa domestic terrorists

Joe Schoffstall reports, Oct. 4, 2017, that Washington Free Beacon obtained unredacted 2015 tax forms showing the hidden donors to a prominent anti-Trump “resistance” organization, the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Community Change Action (CCCA).

CCCA does not reveal its donors. The organization has been involved in direct action against President Donald Trump and Republicans before and after last November’s elections. CCAA members sit on the boards of other prominent liberal activist groups.

The tax form obtained by Washington Beacon shows that Center for Community Change Action appears to rely heavily on a few major liberal foundations, organizations, and unions:

(1) The three largest donors are:

  • W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the source of CCCA’s largest contribution of $3 million. The foundation was created by Will Kellogg, the food manufacturer and founder of Kellogg Company.
  • Ford Foundation donated $2.35 million to CCCA. Created by the founders of the Ford Motor Company, the Ford Foundation is no longer connected to the Ford Motor Company but, inexplicably, retains the Ford name.
  • George Soros’ Open Society Foundation gave $1.75 million.

(2) Other donors include:

  • California Endowment, $524,500.
  • Marquerite Casey Foundation, $515,000.
  • Fidelity Charitable Gift, $505,100 (Fidelity itself did not donate, this figure reflects private individuals who used the company as a charitable vehicle for their own donations — whatever that means. A representative from Fidelity Charitable said the donations do not represent the views or endorsement of Fidelity Charitable or Fidelity Investments.)
  • National Immigration Law Center, $316,000.

(3) Donors to CCCA’s “social welfare” (c)(4) arm:

  • Every Citizen Counts, a nonprofit that was created by allies of Hillary Clinton to mobilize Latino and African-American voters, donated $1.75 million.
  • Soros’ Open Society Policy Center, $1.475 million.
  • Sixteen Thirty Fund, $610,000.
  • Center for Community Change, $150,000.
  • Services Employees International Union (SEIU), $150,000.
  • Atlantic Philanthropies, $75,000.
  • Tides Foundation, the largest liberal donor-advised network, donated $50,000.

Members of the anti-Trump CCCA also sit on the advisory boards of other prominent liberal and “resistance” organizations. Some examples:

  • Deepak Bhargava, CCCA’s executive director, sits on the advisory board of George Soros’s Open Society Foundation.
  • Charlene Sinclair, CCCNA’s director of reinvestment, sits on the board of directors of the Emergent Fund, which is aimed at pushing back against “immediate threats” to “immigrants, women, Muslim and Arab-American communities, black people, LGBTQ communities, and all people of color” — whatever that means. The fund consists of the Solidaire Network, the Threshold Foundation, and the Woman’s Donor Network. The Emergent Fund’s advisory board of members of prominent liberal organizations decides what organizations receive money from the group. Emergent Fund grants range from $10,000 to $50,000. Grant recipients include:
    • Black Lives Matter.
    • Center for Media Justice that was created to “organize the most under-represented communities in a national movement for media rights”.
    • Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative.
    • United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the United States which is behind “sanctuary campus” anti-Trump protests across the country to protect undocumented students. United We Dream was joined by CCCA in nationwide immigration protests leading up to Trump’s inauguration.

And the worst corporate donor to the Resist Trump movement?

Mozilla, the creator of the Firefox web browser.

The company has a program called Mozilla Open Source Support (MOSS). On October 3, 2017, Mozilla announced that one of the MOSS awards is $100,000 to RiseUp, “a coordination platform used by activists across the political spectrum, to improve the security of their email service”.

RiseUp is a self-described “anti-capitalist” email server used by Antifa groups, as explained by the video below.

In an April 2016 FBI/DHS joint confidential report, the Obama administration designated Antifa as “domestic terrorists”.

That means Mozilla is actually funding and enabling domestic terrorists to email each other.

Jimmy Kimmel says good riddance to losing 30% of Republican viewers

Definition of “good riddance” or “riddance”: Relief or deliverance from being rid of something undesirable.

Attention, Republicans!

Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t care if you watch his ABC late-night talk show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”. In fact, he’s glad to be rid of you.

So you’d be a fool to watch his show.

Naomi Lim reports for Washington Examiner, Oct. 15, 2017, that Kimmel told CBS’ Sunday Morning that because of his on-air rants about healthcare and gun control, his show is losing Republican viewers. He said:

“Three years ago, I was equally liked by Republicans and Democrats. And then Republican numbers went way down, like 30 percent, or whatever. And you know, as a talk show host, that’s not ideal but I would do it again in a heartbeat.

When conservative critics like Ben Shapiro slam him for parading as a “moral arbiter,” Kimmel told CBS:

“I’m not. I mean, I agree with him. I’m nobody’s moral arbiter. You don’t have to watch the show. You don’t have to listen to what I say.”

Then Kimmel defiantly added that while he preferred that everyone with a television watch his show:

“But if they’re so turned off by my opinion on healthcare and gun violence then, I don’t know, I probably wouldn’t want to have a conversation with them anyway. Not good riddance, but riddance.

Kimmel earned both high praise and sharp rebukes for his foray into the healthcare debate in September, an issue that he insists is important to him because his six-month-old son Billy was born with a rare congenital heart defect. Kimmel’s portrayal of his son as a victim of President Trump’s efforts to reform/repeal Obamacare is puzzling, given the fact that with an annual salary of $10 million and an estimated net worth of $35 million, Kimmel easily can afford his son’s healthcare costs under whatever health care system.

Kimmel also garnered similarly polarized reactions when he choked up during a monologue imploring Congress to act on gun control in the wake of the October 1 Las Vegas shooting massacre.

2017 Darwin Award: Woman killed sticking her naked torso out of moving car

The Darwin Awards are a tongue-in-cheek honor, originating in Usenet newsgroup discussions around 1985. The award is conferred on individuals for their contribution to human evolution by selecting themselves out of the gene pool via stupid behaviors that lead to their death.

Although there are still 2½ months left in 2017, my nominee for the 2017 Darwin Award is a Russian woman named Natalia Borbina.

Natalia Borbina, 37, from Moscow, Russia, and her friend, Ivanna Boirachuk, 32, from Ukraine, were vacationing in the Dominican Republic.

On Oct. 10, 2017, the two women were en route to Punta Cana airport in a red KIA Picanto, with Boirachuk driving, while Borbina rode in the front passenger seat, with her bikini top off.

At around 4:00 p.m., Borbina hoisted herself out of the car window to show off her breasts as her friend recorded her on video.

Almost immediately, her head struck a street sign.

Rushed to a nearby hospital, within hours she died from severe head trauma.

Borbina left behind two young children.

Punta Cana police arrested Boirachuk for driving under the influence of alcohol. (Source)

Sunday Devotional: The wedding feast invitation

Matthew 22:1-10

Jesus again in reply
spoke to the chief priests and elders of the people
in parables, saying,
“The kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king
who gave a wedding feast for his son.
He dispatched his servants
to summon the invited guests to the feast,
but they refused to come.
A second time he sent other servants, saying,
‘Tell those invited:
“Behold, I have prepared my banquet,
my calves and fattened cattle are killed,
and everything is ready; come to the feast.”‘
Some ignored the invitation and went away,
one to his farm, another to his business.
The rest laid hold of his servants,
mistreated them, and killed them.
The king was enraged and sent his troops,
destroyed those murderers, and burned their city.
Then he said to his servants, ‘The feast is ready,
but those who were invited were not worthy to come.
Go out, therefore, into the main roads
and invite to the feast whomever you find.’
The servants went out into the streets
and gathered all they found, bad and good alike,
and the hall was filled with guests.”

Today’s reading continues the theme of last Sunday — of God’s warning to the people of Israel that if they reject His Son, God would make a new covenant with other peoples, i.e., Gentiles. As Matthew 21:43  puts it:

“Therefore, I say to you,
the kingdom of God will be taken away from you
and given to a people that will produce its fruit.”

And, “In speaking of a new covenant, He makes the first one obsolete.”  Hebrews 8:13) For “God shows no partiality. Rather, in every nation whoever fears him and acts uprightly is acceptable to him.” (Acts 10:35)

Jesus again and again warned “the chief priests and elders of the [Jewish] people” of the dire consequences of rejecting Him, to the end of torturing and killing Him. But they refused to heed His warnings.

How their spurning of Him must hurt . . . .

And the last warning to the Jews — that they can’t worship Yahweh by separating the Son from the Father, and that the Father would not tolerate the rejection of His only Son:

“Whoever hates me also hates my Father.” –John 15:23

And to think Pope Francis actually concealed the cross by stuffing it into his fascia or waist sash, so as not to offend Jews:

Pope Francis hides the Crucifix meeting Israeli rabbis

As with the Jewish élites, God also warns us when we go astray.

Not once, but again and again.

We just have to listen — to that still small voice we call our “conscience” . . . .

May the peace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you,

Unfunny comedian George Lopez booed off stage for Trump jokes

“The smallest worm will turn being trodden on.”

-William Shakespeare, Henry VI

Call it the worm turning, or the tide changing.

But something has changed.

Mara Siegler reports for Page Six, Oct. 14, 2017, that the rabid leftist so-called comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd.

The gala was the Carousel Ball, a fundraiser to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes, where tables sold from from $5,000 to $100,000.

An attendee at the event recounted what happened:

“George [Lopez] was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in front row [Maffei] who just donated $250K. But George doesn’t, continues. Gets booed.”

The flap began when Greg Maffei, a Trump supporter who had donated $250,000 to the diabetes cause, asked Lopez to cool it with the anti-Trump jokes.

Note: Greg Maffei, a Republican, is the president and chief executive officer of Liberty Media and the chairman of Live Nation Entertainment, Sirius XM and TripAdvisor. He is the chairman emeritus of Starz and Expedia, as well as the former chief financial officer of Oracle and Microsoft.

Lopez responded to Maffei’s request with a double insult:

“Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men.”

Note: “Old white man” Greg Maffei is 57 years old, only one year older than George Lopez.

Sensing the audience turn, Lopez tried to recover by feigning an apology that contained yet another insult:

“Listen, it’s about the kids . . . I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America — it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege.”

Lopez then told a joke about Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico:

“I guess you can get some Mexicans to do it cheaper and they wouldn’t crush the tunnels ­underneath.”

When the audience did not respond well, Lopez insulted the audience, calling them “El Chapo people” — a reference to the Mexican drug kingpin who has used tunnels to evade authorities.

Lopez then announced a video segment, but he did not return to the stage, and a local newscaster took over the hosting duties.

TV host Chris Parente posted on Twitter:

“big controversy: host of HUGE charity #CarouselBall, @georgelopez, makes political comments about Trump, drops f-bomb and is escorted out.”

Why the charity ball invited George Lopez to perform in the first place is baffling because I had never found him to be funny.

Jimmy Kimmel to woman: Put your mouth to what’s in my pants

Over the past month, ABC late-night TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has forcefully spoken out on the need for gun control and against President Trump’s efforts to reform/repeal Obamacare.

The Daily Beast points out that Kimmel, however, was noticeably silent on Harvey Weinstein’s sexual molestation and rape of women. Although the New York Times‘ Weinstein exposé was published on Oct. 5, Kimmel and his late-night counterparts Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon and James Corden did not cover it until four days later on Oct. 9.

Kimmel defended himself on Good Morning America, saying that “the Harvey Weinstein thing, people like this false equivalence of that’s somehow equivalent to what happened in Las Vegas,” arguing that Weinstein’s alleged assault of dozens of women does not deserve the same attention as the killing of nearly 60 people in Las Vegas. In so doing, Kimmel presented a false either/or choice, because there’s no reason why Kimmel couldn’t have spoken out on both Weinstein and Las Vegas.

Kimmel then said that Weinstein is “not a friend of mine” because “I’m not in the movie business,” which is absurd on its face because of Kimmel’s hosting of the Academy Awards and his friendship with many of the movie stars in Weinstein’s orbit.

The video below of a so-called “comedy sketch” explains Kimmel’s reticence on the subject of Harvey Weinstein.

Transcript:

Kimmel to woman: “I’ve stuffed something in my pants, and you’re allowed to feel around on the outside of the pants. You have 10 seconds to then guess what is in my pants.”

The woman bends down to feel Kimmel’s crotch.

Kimmel: “You should use two hands, two hands.”

To another woman squatting down and groping his crotch: “Maybe it would be easier if you put your mouth on it.”

Later, Kimmel reveals what was in his pants — a zucchini with a rubber band around the top, to simulate a penis.

This is what passes as comedy in America today. What a commentary on “feminism” that there are women so desperate to be on TV that they willingly degrade themselves — and right in the open, on a public street.
