Fake Hate Crime: Black girl admits she lied about being attacked by 3 white boys

Last month, this racially-motivated white-on-black hate-crime was widely reported by the MSM — that Amari Allen, 12, a black female student at the Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia, “where Vice President Mike Pence’s wife works,” said that on Monday, Sept. 23, 2019, she was assaulted by three sixth-grade white boys.

Allen claimed that she was about to go down a slide during recess when one of the boys grabbed her and put his hand over her mouth. The second boy grabbed her arms, while the third cut off some of her dreadlocks. Allen said, “They said my hair was nappy and I was ugly.”

 

Allen said that she was afraid to tell anyone until two days later, when a family member was doing her hair and noticed the missing locks. The girl and her grandfather told NBC4 in Washington, DC, that she broke down in tears as she recounted the assault to the family member. Allen’s grandfather said he was deeply shaken by her account: “My heart just broke. I was just paralyzed. I couldn’t get myself together.”

Allen said the same three boys have been bullying her since the beginning of the school year. The family reported the assault to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Insinuating guilt by association, MSM outlets (NBC News, Newsweek, New York Times, Washington Post, Daily Beast) made it a point that Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen, teaches art part time at the private Christian school.

It turns out this is yet another instance of an entirely fake hate-crime.

On Sept. 30, 2019, Allen’s grandparents, who are her legal guardians, admitted that the girl had made the whole thing up. The grandparents issued the following apology that the school sent to the Washington Post:

To those young boys and their parents, we sincerely apologize for the pain and anxiety these allegations have caused. To the administrators and families of Immanuel Christian School, we are sorry for the damage this incident has done to trust within the school family and the undue scorn it has brought to the school. To the broader community, who rallied in such passionate support for our daughter, we apologize for betraying your trust.

We understand there will be consequences and we’re prepared to take responsibility for them. We know that it will take time to heal, and we hope and pray that the boys, their families, the school and the broader community will be able to forgive us in time.

But as Becket Adams of the Washington Examiner points out, the girl’s retraction will not be widely reported:

The reporters who tried to slime Pence with Allen’s allegation . . . know full well that the eventual correction almost never gets the same amount of attention as the original falsehood. Correction or not, the damage is already done. There will not be an end to this sort of sloppy and irresponsible reporting because the dirty not-so-secret is that a significant number of journalists see themselves more as being in the business of ‘resisting’ the Trump White House than keeping the public informed . . . . 

This keeps happening. Newsrooms keep embracing dubious allegations of harmful, bigoted behavior because too many reporters are not operating as reporters. They are operating instead as political activists. They’ve already drawn their conclusions about the Trump White House. Their goal now is to find supporting evidence, and things such as Allen’s since-recanted story are the perfect match.

Hypocrite: Pro-gun control Hollyweirdo Alyssa Milano owns 2 guns for self-defense

Aging actress Alyssa Milano in a cleavage-bearing low-cut blouse at SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing October 2018

Has-been actress Alyssa Milano, 46, is a rabid gun-control activist.

As an example, on May 5, 2018, Milano led a protest against Vice President Mike Pence at the NRA’s 2018 convention in Dallas, Texas, despite the fact that both Pence and the NRA are renowned defenders of the right to own guns for self-defense.

Milano’s protest is the height of hypocrisy because she herself owns two guns for self-defense. In other words, she should lead a protest against herself.

Breitbart reports that during a debate with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday evening, Sept. 10, 2019, Milano and Fred Guttenberg — whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was killed in the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting in Parkland, Florida — pressed Cruz on various gun control proposals.

Milano proposed universal background checks, restricting access to AR-15s, and background checks for bullet purchases, while insisting, “We all believe in the Second Amendment.”

Around 13 minutes into the discussion, Guttenberg said he was offended by Cruz’s argument that these gun controls would erode Americans’ rights to self-defense, saying: “That’s a load of BS. Nobody’s trying to remove your right to self-defense.”

Milano interjected: “By the way, I have two guns in my household for self-defense, just so you know.”

Hypocrite!

MAGA: President Trump raises $24.8M for re-election in less than 24 hours

From Yahoo: President Trump held a rally in Orlando on Tuesday night billed as the kickoff to his reelection campaign. And according to the Republican National Committee, he received nearly $25 million in contributions in less than a day.

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel announced Wednesday that Trump raised a “record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election.”

“The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen!” she tweeted.

RNC chief of staff Richard Walters told Yahoo News that the total is a combination of the amount raised by the Trump campaign and Trump Victory, the joint fundraising arm for the campaign and the RNC.

The RNC took in $10.8 million from major donors at two fundraising events, while the Trump campaign raised $8 million through a phone drive and about $6 million in online donations. (The average online donation was $44, Walters said.)

Trump’s one-day haul is nearly four times the amount former Vice President Joe Biden raised in the first 24 hours after announcing his 2020 presidential campaign.

Biden took in $6.3 million, the largest first-day total for any of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. According to Biden’s campaign, the money was raised from nearly 97,000 individual donors across all 50 states.

The former vice president’s campaign raised slightly more in its first 24 hours than former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke ($6.1 million) and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders ($5.9 million).

Biden, though, has faced criticism among Democratic rivals for his embrace of high-rolling donors and top-dollar fundraisers.

“I don’t spend time at fancy fundraisers,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted earlier this week. “Instead, I spend my time meeting voters and thanking grassroots donors who chip in what they can.”

Months before resigning as defense secretary, James Mattis plotted to challenge President Trump in 2020 GOP primary

James Mattis, 68, former U.S. Marine Corps general who was widely revered by rank-and-file Marines for his blunt talk and leadership, was recruited by President Trump into his administration as Secretary of Defense, to the roaring approval of conservatives and patriots.

See “Obama regime purges 5th senior military officer: Cmdr of CENTCOM James Mattis

Mattis was defense secretary for only two years, from January 20, 2017 to December 31, 2018.

According to Wikipedia, on December 20, 2018, a day after Trump’s announcement of an immediate U.S. withdrawal from Syria over the objections of his national security advisers, Mattis submitted his resignation after failing to persuade Trump to reconsider. Mattis had recently said that the U.S. would remain in Syria following the defeat of ISIL to ensure they did not regroup.

Mattis’ resignation letter contained language that appeared to criticize Trump’s worldview, such as praising NATO which Trump has often derided. In his letter, Mattis wrote that Trump has “the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with [his] on these and other subjects” and that his resignation would be effective February 28, 2019. Three days later, angered by Mattis’ implicit criticism of Trump’s worldview, Trump moved Mattis’ departure date up to January 1. A day after Mattis’ departure, on January 2, 2019, Trump criticized Mattis’ performance as Secretary of Defense and said he had “essentially fired him.”

Now we know the real reason why Mattis resigned or was fired: At least seven months before he resigned, Mattis had put together a plan to challenge Trump in the 2020 Republican primary elections.

This stunning news is from Big League Politics, whose sources are:

  1. Travis Snyder, 25, an Indiana-based political consultant who was the point man for a team working to launch a Mattis Republican primary campaign against President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Insiders say Snyder is close to Vice President Mike Pence.
  2. Alex Rountree, a conservative consultant whom Snyder tried to recruit for the Mattis team.

As recounted by Patrick Howley for Big League Politics, May 22, 2019, then Defense Secretary “James Mattis and some White House employees were directly aware of and monitoring a team working to launch a Mattis Republican primary campaign against President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, according to documents obtained by Big League Politics and statements from the organizers who put the team together.”

In a series of interview, Travis Snyder told Big League Politics: “My job was to see what his [Mattis’] pathway to the White House would look like. There was a very small team. I oversaw early states polling, putting together possible running mates. I did not work with the fundraising team. I solely looked at what his path to the nomination would look like, and then his pathway to the White House. General Mattis was aware of the effort. He knew of the team, who exactly brought the team together. There are people who currently serve in the White House who knew that the team was coming together. This group is no longer active.”

Snyder kicked off his Mattis whisper campaign by planting an article with Andrew Feinberg, who wrote an August 2018 piece for Beltway Breakfast headlined, “Defense Secretary Mattis Weighing 2020 Bid, Predicts He’d ‘Kick Trump’s Ass’“.

August 2018 was four months before Mattis submitted his resignation.

Mattis’ running mate prospects included Nikki Haley, the Trump administration’s U.S. ambassador to the UN (2017-2018), and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas).

Snyder said Nikki Haley and Dan Creshaw were polled as a VP nominee in the event that Mattis ran. Also Jackie Walorski, Mitch Daniels, and regional smaller named people like Staff Sergeant Johnny Joe Jones. Snyder said his team also polled Vice President Mike Pence’s chances to run against Trump, but found that Pence had no chance.

Snyder declined to name the donors to the effort or the main person organizing it.

Snyder approached conservative consultant Alex Rountree about being part of the team, but Rountree told Big League Politics he wanted nothing to do with it. Rountree had signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement with Snyder, but the agreement is now expired.

Rountree says he never had any intention of helping Snyder, only in exposing the establishment plot to betray President Trump. Rountree identifies Snyder as being “good family friends with Pence” and also an adviser to Jackie Walorski, the congresswoman in Pence’s old district. According to Rountree, Snyder made it appear that Pence was supportive of the primary challenge to Trump. Rountree told Big League Politics:

“He [Snyder] was fluffing around a little bit about Pence, saying, ‘Pence wouldn’t be upset if Mattis ran.’ Somebody who knew the President’s every move all the time was working with Mattis: that turned out to be (John) Kelly. They were hoping for Nikki Haley on the ticket. [Snyder was trying to put together] 15 consultants or operatives in 15 different states. He said he had a polling firm that just signed an NDA that worked for the [Ted] Cruz campaign.”

Ted Cruz’s pollster during the 2016 election was The Polling Company, the president and CEO of which was KellyAnne Conway, who resigned from the company on January 20, 2017 to become Counselor to President Trump. Snyder did not deny Conway’s possible involvement in the Mattis team.

Snyder told Rountree that the Mattis team had representatives in Arizona, Michigan, Virginia and Florida.

Below are screenshots of handwritten notes that Rountree took of his conversations with Snyder on May 16 and 17, 2018, seven months before James Mattis submitted his letter of resignation:

Donna Brazile’s cryptic “President Pelosi” tweet and rumors of plot to assassinate Trump

Donna Brazile, 59, is a Democrat apparatchik, Al Gore’s presidential campaign manager in 2000, and the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee in Spring 2011 and, again, during the 2016 presidential campaign when she deliberately sabotaged Hillary Clinton’s rival, Bernie Sanders. See:

On January 18, 2019, Brazile posted this curious tweet (archived here), with a short time-frame reference:

#MadamSpeaker today
#PresidentPelosi shortly thereafter
#MLKWeekend is underway
Keep Hope Alive!

According to the 1947 Presidential Succession Act, if a sitting U.S. president is incapacitated, the line of presidential succession is:

  1. Vice President
  2. Speaker of the House of Representatives
  3. President pro-tempore of the Senate
  4. Eligible heads of federal executive departments who form the president’s Cabinet.

This means House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could only succeed as president if President Trump and Vice President Pence were both incapacitated, as in assassinated.

Rumors began to fly across the Alternative Media when netizens put together Brazile’s curious January 18 tweet and President Trump’s banning of Pelosi’s planned overseas trip a day before, on January 17.

As an example, here’s a series of tweets posted by netizen Greg Rubini:

why Nancy Pelosi was so eager to fly away from the country? with other 92 persons (Dem reps, +families) +a lot of luggage?

why on a Military plane? why Pelosi wanted to personally select the crew of the Military airplane?

Nancy wanted to be sure to have “Pelosi allied” Military guys as crew, perhaps?

why Pelosi first stop was Bruxelles – NATO headquarters?

“the Pelosi delegation planned to meet NATO commanders, US Military leaders” “and key allies”

Key allies = Soros cabal Merkel (Germany). Rothschild cabal Macron (France), DeepState cabal (UK) EU boozey Juncker

why was also [Rep.] Adam Schiff [D-CA] on that trip?

“prior to the John F. Kennedy assassination in Nov 1963, the Entire Cabinet was flown to Tokyo, Japan.” “at the time of the JFK assassination, the Entire Cabinet was out of the country”

-same pattern with Pelosi and Adam Schiff? -preparing a new Nancy Pelosi Cabinet?

why Pelosi wanted to fly away at all costs?

why Pelosi wanted to fly away with Adam Schiff, plus other 6 Dem congressmen, plus 85 family members?

during a Gov’t shutdown? isn’t it weird?

is this a DeepState plot to assassinate Trump and Pence and replace them with Nancy Pelosi as President of the USA ?

we know from a trusted source – Dr. Dave Janda – that there have been “a dozen of assassination attempts on President Trump” cc: Dr. Janda

In light of Brazile’s January 18 “PresidentPelosi” tweet, Roger Stone’s January 18 warning of a deep state coup to remove President Trump now makes sense. Stone is a GOP consultant and advisor to Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

As reported by InfoWars‘ Paul Joseph Watson:

Political strategist Roger Stone says that the deep state is planning to remove both President Trump and VP Mike Pence from office so that they can install Nancy Pelosi as President as part of a coup that will eventually see Hillary Clinton return as President.

“The deep state seeks to fabricate some misdeed by the Trump campaign that is sold as Russian collusion,” said Stone.

“That way they can remove both Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, paving the way for Nancy Pelosi to become president.”

“Pelosi will then appoint Hillary Clinton to the vacant Vice Presidency after which Pelosi would resign as president allowing Hillary to take the White House which alluded [sic] her grasp in 2016.”

UPDATE (Jan. 25, 2019):

A day after I published this post, and a week after Roger Stone sent out the alert, in the pre-dawn darkness this morning, a team of FBI and SWAT agents raided Stone’s home in Miami, Florida and arrested him on multiple charges “as part of the ongoing special counsel investigation led by Robert Mueller.” (Blabber Buzz)

Meanwhile, the real criminals (Hillary Clinton, et al.) remain at large.

Army stands ready to build wall when Trump declares national emergency

Tonight, at 9 p.m. EST, President Trump will speak to America about security along our border with Mexico. Trump will follow his speech with a visit to the border on Thursday.

Vice President Pence said the national address is due to congressional Demonrats’ refusal to even negotiate on funds for border wall construction, which would end the partial (25%) federal government shut-down that began December 22. President Trump asks for $5.7 billion for construction of a steel border wall.

Note that the first order of business of the House Democrats was to pass bills to fund hundreds of millions of dollars for abortion by Planned Parenthood ($100 million), international NGOs ($500 million), and the UN Population Fund ($37.5 million).

A new Economist/YouGov survey, conducted Dec. 30-Jan. 1, found that:

  • A vast majority (86%) of Americans say illegal immigration is a problem, including 97% of Republicans, 82% of independents, and 83% of Democrats.
  • Only 7% of Americans think illegal immigration is “not a problem”, including 2% of Republicans, 7% of independents, and 12% of Democrats.
  • The remaining 6% of Americans are not sure if illegal immigration is a problem or not.

It is expected that in his national address, President Trump will declare a national emergency to build and pay for the wall. Indeed, border insecurity is a national emergency:

  • In fiscal 2017, as many as 3,755 known or suspected terrorists entered the U.S.
  • In fiscal 2018, which ended on Sept. 30, at the southern border:
    • Customs and Border Protection agents caught 17,000 adults who had criminal records.
    • Immigration and Customs Enforcement apprehended 6,000 members of gangs, including the violent MS-13.
    • A 73% increase in fentanyl, one of the deadliest drugs, totaling 2,400 pounds.
    • A 38% increase in methamphetamine.
    • A 38% increase in heroin.
    • 50 migrants a day required medical treatment.
    • 31% of female migrants said they were sexually assaulted on the journey to the U.S. (The Daily Signal)

And when/if President Trump declares border security is a national emergency, the U.S. Army will be the primary contractor to build the wall.

InfoWars reports that two days ago, on Sunday, January 6, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) sent a letter to Democratic House committee chairs, informing them that the Customs and Border Protection agency is coordinating with the army to fulfill President Trump’s goal of securing the border with a steel wall.

The letter also says that President Trump’s request for $5.7 billion would fund construction of approximately 234 miles of a steel border wall, and several other areas pertaining to border security, including more border patrol personnel, humanitarian supplies, and technology resources. (Read the letter on ScribD, here.)

Yesterday, a White House official said, “If the president declares a national emergency, the Army Corps of Engineers will kick into high gear. They’re already handing out contracts, and that would speed up a lot.”

In fact, the Army Corps of Engineers had begun soliciting bids in mid-2017 for companies to produce “a mix of border fence, border wall, border patrol roads, border access roads, border lights, border gates (for access to border monuments, for maintenance, and for Border Patrol operational use), border drainage improvements, levee walls, and other miscellaneous improvements, repairs, and alterations.” (Daily Mail)

Jim Carrey calls President Trump a “melanoma,” rails against republicans

TDS-infected Jim Carrey…a sad and bitter “artist”

Someone needs to get a healthier hobby. Or up his meds.

From Hollywood Reporter: “Trump is a melanoma,” Jim Carrey said Sunday during a panel discussing his art and political activism.

The actor-turned-artist railed against President Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and other Republican politicians during a conversation at Vulture Fest in Los Angeles, during which he also called his assistant mid-panel to post his latest political painting — a portrait of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as a turtle (“which unfortunately for him now is not protected,” Carrey said) with a blue wave crashing behind him.

Carrey called him “incredibly dangerous, a threat to homeland security. And now he has the nerve to come out a couple of days ago and ask for bipartisanship.” He added, “These are not people you can deal with. You cannot be bipartisan with a criminal. A rapist needs to be removed, not negotiated with. These people are raping our system, they’re destroying it right in front of us. …This corrupt Republican congress that was…These people have to be removed from our system because they’re bad for us. Trump is a melanoma, and anybody that covers for him, including Sarah Sanders, is putting makeup on it. It shows that there’s a deeper problem in this country, and that problem is greed.”

(FYI: Carrey is worth $150 million. Such a greedy man to hoard all that wealth.)

Other musings included the revelation that Carrey broke down after Aretha Franklin’s death: “The day Aretha Franklin died I cried that someone so beautiful and so incredibly conscious and someone who’s done so much to lift the spirit of people has to close her eyes on a world like this. It’s a fucking injustice. It shouldn’t happen. I can’t stand it. I can’t take it.”

Speaking out against the Christian right, Carrey added, “I think they’re going to find out once and for all that the Christian right has never been about morality, it’s been about holding on to power and using morality to do so.”

Of his desire for a Beto O’Rourke/Kamala Harris Presidential ticket, Carrey said: “I think she’s fantastic, I think he’s an incredible guy, and I would love to vote in this decade for someone that’s not the lesser of the evils.” (For the record, he thinks Hillary Clinton would be a good president, however, “I believe she knows what she’s doing but the fact that people are conflicted about her, whether it’s right or wrong, is a problem and will lose votes.”)

In addition to the one he posted, Carrey went through several of his other paintings, including one of Mike Pence (“It’s truly the face of insincerity”), one of Donald Trump crucifying Jesus (“I just thought of every…selfish word he said as another nail in the cross of Jesus”), a Halloween drawing of Donald Trump as a cyclops (“To me the right is a cyclops, it sees in [one dimension] — what can I see, what can I have?”), former EPA chief Scott Pruitt (“He’s a vampire and that’s all”), and Rudy Giuliani (“A guy that doesn’t have presence of mind enough to dye the bottom teeth. His mouth is the whole administration in a nutshell”).

He also discussed his painting of Colin Kaepernick that commended Nike for supporting the former pro football player. “I wanted to encourage an act of goodness,” Carrey explained, saying he didn’t necessarily mean to endorse Nike’s business practices. “We have to encourage goodness, that’s how we get more goodness.”

He continued, “The African-American community has incredible grace in the face of this cancerous hate. They’re unbelievable. I don’t know how they haven’t burned this country down.”

(Hey, BLM already tried to burn down Baltimore. How did that work for the citizens of that city?)

Ageist: Rosie O’Donnell calls for senior GOP politicians to retire

From Fox News: Rosie O’Donnell took to Twitter to mock the age of prominent Republicans, calling on Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, to retire – despite lefty leaders being the same age.

“Grassley and hatch – too old – they should be done – come on – at thanksgiving we don’t let the 85 year olds carve the turkey #retire,” O’Donnell tweeted.

Hatch, the Senate president pro tempore and third in the presidential line of succession behind Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Grassley are two of the GOP’s most prominent members. Many Hollywood liberals, including O’Donnell, are currently upset that many Republicans continue to support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual harassment allegations.

Grassley is 85, while Hatch is 84 years old. But several prominent Democrats are in the same age range. Liberal icons Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Dianne Feinstein are both 85, Maxine Waters is 80, Nancy Pelosi is 78 and Bernie Sanders is a spry 77 years old.

A 2014 Gallup poll showed the average retirement age is 62.

O’Donnell, 56, has a decades-old feud with President Trump and she has been an outspoken critic of his administration. Some of her followers were offended by her call for the older Republicans to retire.

I hate to bring this up but discriminating against someone because of their age is just as wrong as any other form of discrimination. Their behavior was the same decades ago. Approaching 70 myself, I’ll match wits with you any time you’d like,” one user wrote.

“Not cool,” another follower added. “Plenty of 85 year old people are as sharp as ever.”

Just last year, CNN published a story headlined, “The Democratic Party has an age problem,” that noted the ongoing problem with the advanced age of some liberal leaders.

“Democratic leaders across both the legislative and executive branches are generally older than leadership on the other side of the aisle,” CNN’s Ryan Struyk wrote before noting the average age of Democrats on Capitol Hill was 61, while the average Republican was 57.2 years old.

Washington state governor gives $1.2 million taxpayer dollars to assist illegal aliens

gov insleee
Don’t let the lack of the word “illegal” in this story fool you. Gov. Inslee has, in effect, turned Washington state into a sanctuary state.
From MyNorthwest.com: Just hours after President Trump signed an executive order to keep families together at the U.S.-Mexico border, Washington state Governor Jay Inslee called the policy child abuse and announced he will give $1.2 million to support Northwest Immigrant Rights Project’s civil legal aid services.
The money will be used to defend immigrant rights and to help families reunite.
“We know that this was an intentional infliction of abusive behavior to punish innocent children,” Inslee said. “It is a form of child abuse.”
The governor said that everyone is entitled to a fair and due process, and to be treated with dignity and respect.
As for Trump’s executive order, Inslee said it’s too late. The damage has been done. “We have more than 2,300 children separated from their parents today,” Inslee said.
The governor said Trump’s administration has lied about the separation of children from their parents, why they did what they did to the children, lied about who is responsible, and lied about what it will take to reunite families.
Inslee and state Attorney General Bob Ferguson sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Department of Homeland Security head Kirstjen Nielsen for answers about why the policy was enacted and about the location of the children and parents. He said they have not received answers.
Trump said on Wednesday, “We are keeping families together.” But he added the “zero tolerance” policy will continue.
Vice President Mike Pence added that they are calling upon Congress to change the laws. Trump added that the word “compassion” comes into it.
The president has been trying to win over congressional support on immigration amid a crisis along the border involving the separation of immigrant children from their families.
