College student bullied over a photo with Mike Pence

Remember, #LoveTrumpsHate!

From NY Post: A Scripps College student claims she’s being bullied for a photo that she posted of herself alongside Vice President Mike Pence — with some saying it “constitutes direct violence and oppression against marginalized groups.”

McKenzie Deutsch, an incoming junior at the private California women’s school, described the online harassment in a column for the Claremont Independent on Sunday.

“Shortly after posting the photo, I began receiving vicious comments and private messages accusing me of not caring about LGBTQ rights and attacking me for getting anywhere near the Vice-President,” she wrote. “Close friends and distant acquaintances alike lashed out in fury, subjecting me to lectures, rants, and name-calling — all while ignoring the photo’s plainly apolitical context.”

In the picture, Deutsch can be seen standing alongside Pence and Republican Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers — whom she interned with this summer.

“A few weeks ago…I saw how personally my peers take politics upon sharing a photo of me standing with Vice-President Mike Pence and Republican Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers,” Deutsch said. “Knowing my Facebook audience was politically diverse, I made no political comments. Instead, I shared my excitement and gratitude for the opportunity to intern for Rodgers — the highest ranking Republican woman in Congress — and to interact with such impactful and important people in my job. The photo should not have caused any trouble. But my Scripps College and Claremont peers begged to differ.”

Before sharing the image online, Deutsch said she had been worried about expressing her personal views “without being shunned” by her Scripps College classmates and professors alike. “So, I did not,” she said. “I kept my head down and did my best to avoid sparking controversy.”

Scripps has become infamous for its political correctness over the years, with several incidents occurring on campus.

In March 2016, a dean at the liberal arts school scolded students after one of their Mexican-American peers woke up to find “#trump2016” scrawled on a whiteboard that was hanging on her dorm room door.

“According to my peers, taking a photo with Vice-President Pence is anything but neutral,” Deutsch said. “In fact, it constitutes direct violence and oppression against marginalized groups.”

One of Deutsch’s biggest critics accused her of “ignoring the plights of marginalized people to achieve personal gain” — saying she was a person who “smiled with [their] oppressors.”

Another person chided her for standing next to someone who is “a threat to human rights everywhere.”

Others turned to mockery, inquiring: “Did you manage to ask him why he thinks women are second-class citizens?” and “How many LBGTQ folks do you need to help send to conversion therapy in exchange for reproductive rights from Pence?”

Then there were those who resorted to name-calling. “A classmate simply commented, ‘Bitch,’” Deutsch recalled. “Many others ‘liked’ these comments, endorsing this shameless harassment.”

In closing, Deutsch blasted her fellow students at Scripps — saying it’s important to engage with individuals “across the aisle.”

“How did we get to the point where taking a photo with someone is an act of violence?” she asks. “How will we ever be able to have adult conversations if no one is ever willing to listen to those who have opposing philosophies? How can we coexist when we write off our political opponents — as well as those who dare to take photos with them — as morally bankrupt?”

Deutsch added, “No one seems to remember what their teachers have taught them since Kindergarten: Be respectful of others. Apparently, when it comes to those with whom they disagree, many of my peers are only capable of disrespectful engagement…This is not as it should be. We need a genuine dialogue — now more than ever.”

Stealth Christians and weekly Bible studies at Trump White House

One little-known fact about the Trump administration are its stealth Christians:

(1) Steve Bannon, White House Chief Strategist, is described by a friend as “non-practicing orthodox Catholic”.

(2) Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to the President, who grew up in poverty in New Jersey, raised by her mother after her parents divorced when Kellyanne was only three, attends daily Mass.

(3) Ryan Zinke, Secretary of the Interior, wore a pair of socks with the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to his Senate confirmation hearing.

(4) First Lady Melania Trump is a practicing Catholic. On February 18, 2017, Melania kicked off a rally at Orlando-Melbourne Airport in Florida by reciting the Lord’s Prayer. On May 24, 2017, after she asked Pope Francis to bless her rosary, then prayed in the chapel of the Bambin Gesù (Baby Jesus) pediatric hospital where she visited the young patients and their families, her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed that Melania indeed is Catholic — the first Catholic First Lady since Jackie Kennedy.

The latest news is sure to make the Left’s heads explode even more — the Trump White House hosts Cabinet Bible Study meetings!

Jennifer Wishon reports for CBN News, July 31, 2017:

“A spiritual awakening is underway at the White House.

Some of the most powerful people in America have been gathering weekly to learn more about God’s Word, and this Trump Cabinet Bible study is making history.

They’ve been called the most evangelical Cabinet in history – men and women who don’t mince words when it comes to where they stand on God and the Bible.”

Ralph Drollinger, a former NBA-player who founded the evangelical Capitol Ministries — Bible studies in 40 state capitols, a number of foreign capitols, as well as weekly studies in the U.S. House and Senate — now leads about a dozen members of President Trump’s Cabinet in weekly studies of the scriptures.

Some of the regulars are Health Secretary Tom Price, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Agriculture Secretary Sunny Perdue,  CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Drollinger said he doesn’t think a formal Bible study among executive Cabinet members has been done in at least 100 years:

“It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they’re so noble; they’re so learned. He’ll (Jeff Sessions) go out the same day I teach him something and I’ll see him do it on camera and I just think, ‘Wow, these guys are faithful, available and teachable and they’re at Bible study every week they’re in town.'”

President Trump, a lifelong Presbyterian, is invited to attend the Bible studies; each week he receives a copy of Drollinger’s teaching. Vice President Pence is a sponsor of the Cabinet Bible studies and plans to join the study as his schedule permits.

What a refreshing change from the Obama administration’s voodoo incantations in the White House, a crypto Muslim POTUS, and a Muslim CIA director (John Brennan).

More unoriginal trash coming out of Hollyweird: “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later”

Wet Hot American Summer was an American comedy film that bombed in 2001. The movie takes place during the last full day at a fictional summer camp in 1981, and spoofs the sex comedies aimed at teen audiences of that era.  The film was a critical and commercial failure, but has since developed a cult following.

And because Hollyweird has no original ideas left, they’ve decided to remake this (albeit set ten years later) as a series on Netflix. From Wikipedia:

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is an upcoming satirical comedy internet television series written by David Wain and Michael Showalter, and directed by Wain. The Netflix series is a sequel to both Wain’s 2001 film Wet Hot American Summer, and the 2015 prequel television series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. The series will consist of eight episodes, and is scheduled to be released on August 4, 2017.

There are plenty of reasons to ignore this internet television series. In fact, here is one reason to avoid this show:

Michael Ian Black: This comic is a favorite douche on Twitchy…because he makes it so easy. Check out his brilliant tweets:

And if that isn’t reason enough to avoid this show, here’s four more…

Christopher Meloni: A devout proggie, Christopher starred in Amy Schumer’s stupid movie, Snatched.  His Twitter timeline embodies TARD (Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder). Some recent examples:

  • Our snowflake president loves his participation trophies
  • Fragile In Chief and his minions need to be reassured.
  • Mike Pence, organ grinder monkey
  • Trump declared this week is “Made in America Week”. Which is ironic since his clothes aren’t made in America and neither was his presidency.
  • It’s not appropriate for this Pretender In Chief to be constantly vaca-ing on our dime. #GetAJob #BesidesBeingARussianMole
  • Makes one yearn for the wisdom of a Dan Quayle when the Idiot In Chief opens his mouth
  • With all due respect – shut up u f—ing d—, Ur damaged goods and only Putin and idiots and brown Nosers believe in u.

Alyssa Milano: This former child actress has gone full-blown TARD. Just check out her Twitter timeline. Here are a couple examples of her distaste for everything Trump:

  • She slammed Melania’s official portrait saying, “You look beautiful, but you could feed many of the impoverished in our country with your rings.” Apparently rich Republican women are not allowed to own/wear huge diamond rings, only rich Demorat women.
  • In March, Alyssa wrote about how her “anger is palpable.” In an article for Marie Claire, she writes about how women will take down Trump stating, “Removing him will be up to us. Despite the crushing, life-altering blow we suffered on November 8th, it’s [sic] women who are organizing the resistance. Feminine power is boundless. Women can change the world. We already have…and we’re not giving up now.”

Alyssa also supported the Georgia congressional candidate loser Jon Ossoff. She even went to Georgia and offered rides to get people out to vote for him. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Amy Poehler: Amy is a well-known demorat who supported Obama and Hillary Clinton. She promoted Obamacare through the #getcovered hashtag.

Poehler also participated in the “Demand a Plan” video to end gun violence (aka gun control). Funny though, she and her liberal friends enjoy armed protection at award shows. Hypocrite.

Dax Shepard: Dax is married to Kristen Bell, an enthusiastic supporter of Planned Parenthood. Last year the two of them were paid to promote Samsung washing machines, of which there were 21 reported cases of machines that exploded. Oops.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later…another product of Hollyweird that I will not be watching.

Democrat bill in Congress, HR 1987, to remove President Trump for ‘mental incompetence’

Ever since Donald Trump was inaugurated President, Democrats have agitated and schemed for his removal, via either impeachment or the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Section 4 of the 25th Amendment states:

“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”

On Feb. 18, 2017, writing in the New York Times less than a month after Trump’s inauguration, Nicholas Kristof ruled out impeachment because “it’s hard to imagine a majority of the House voting to impeach, and even less conceivable that two-thirds of the Senate would vote to convict so that Trump would be removed. Moreover, impeachment and trial in the Senate would drag on for months, paralyzing America and leaving Trump in office with his finger on the nuclear trigger.”

So Kristof turned to the 25th Amendment as a more likely method:

“But the cleanest and quickest way to remove a president involves Section 4 of the 25th Amendment and has never been attempted. It provides that the cabinet can, by a simple majority vote, strip the president of his powers and immediately hand power to the vice president. The catch is that the ousted president can object, and in that case Congress must approve the ouster by a two-thirds vote in each chamber, or the president regains office.

The 25th Amendment route is to be used when a president is ‘unable’ to carry out his duties. I asked Laurence Tribe, the Harvard professor of constitutional law, whether that could mean not just physical incapacity, but also mental instability. Or, say, the taint of having secretly colluded with Russia to steal an election?

Tribe said that he believed Section 4 could be used in such a situation.”

Kristof concludes:

“And what does it say about a presidency that, just one month into it, we’re already discussing whether it can be ended early?”

Kristof should have defined and qualified what he meant by “we” because his observation really is about his fellow Demonrats and himself. If he were honest, he would phrase his question as follows:

“And what does it say about Democrats and me that, just one month into a duly-elected presidency, we’re already issuing death threats and discussing whether it can be ended early?”

The Democrats have moved beyond mere talk to actual action in Congress.

On April 6, 2017, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) introduced a bill, HR 1987: Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act, the objective of which is to form a special commission in the House which will be charged with activating Section 4 of the 25th Amendment against President Trump.

Note: Democrat Jaime Raskin, 54, “was born in Washington, D.C. on December 13, 1962 to a Jewish family”. A law professor at American University who teaches constitutional law, Raskin is a former Maryland state senator who became Maryland’s 8th congressional district’s representative in the U.S. House of Representatives in January 2017. Raskin’s first action as a Congressman was his objection, with several other members of House of Representatives, to certifying the election of Donald Trump as President because of Russian interference in the election, never mind the fact that to this day, neither the Democrats nor the FBI could actually produce evidence of Russia’s interference. Vice President Joseph Biden ruled the objection out of order because it had to be sponsored by at least one member of each chamber, and there was no Senate sponsor. (Wikipedia)

HR 1987 is co-sponsored by 21 representatives — all Democrats. They are, in alphabetical order:

  • Earl Blumenauer (OR)
  • Anthony Brown (MD)
  • Judy Chu (CA)
  • David Cicilline (RI)
  • Steve Cohen (TN)
  • John Conyers (MI)
  • Lloyd Doggett (TX)
  • Dwight Evans (PA)
  • Raul Grijalva (AZ)
  • Luis Gutierrez (IL)
  • Pramila Jayapal (WA)
  • Henry “Hank” Johnson (GA)
  • Barbara Lee (CA)
  • Sheila Jackson Lee (TX)
  • Zoe Lofgren (CA)
  • James McGovern (MA)
  • Jerrold Nadler (NY)
  • Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC)
  • Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL)
  • Darren Soto (FL)
  • Mark Takano (CA)

On May 1, 2017, HR 1987 was referred to the House Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.

This is what HR 1987 says:

To establish the Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity, and for other purposes…. The Commission shall serve as the body provided by law by Congress to carry out section 4 of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

Section 3 of HR 1987 says that the duty of the Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity is twofold:

(a) In general.—If directed by Congress pursuant to section 5, the Commission shall carry out a medical examination of the President to determine whether the President is mentally or physically unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office, as described under subsection (b).

(b) Determination.—The determination under subsection (a) shall be made if the Commission finds that the President is temporarily or permanently impaired by physical illness or disability, mental illness, mental deficiency, or alcohol or drug use to the extent that the person lacks sufficient understanding or capacity to execute the powers and duties of the office of President.

The Commission will be composed of 11 members:

  • The Senate Majority and Minority Leaders, the House Speaker and Minority Leader each appoints two members, both of whom shall be physicians, with one of the two a psychiatrist M.D.
  • The Republican Party and the Democratic Party each selects a member, who shall be a former statesman, like a retired president or vice president.
  • The final group of 10 would meet and choose an 11th member, who would be the committee’s chairman.

Within 72 hours after conducting an examination of the President, “the Commission shall submit a report to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President pro tempore of the Senate describing the findings and conclusions of the examination.”

HR 1987 ends with an Orwellian clincher. Sec. 6(a) says:

Any refusal by the President to undergo such examination shall be taken into consideration by the Commission in reaching a conclusion in the report….

Reporting for the Daily Mail on June 30, 2017, David Martosko points out that although HR 1987:

“has predictably failed to attract any Republicans . . . the U.S. Constitution’s 25th Amendment does allow for a majority of the president’s cabinet, or ‘such other body as Congress may by law provide,’ to decide if an Oval Office occupant is unable to carry out his duties – and then to put it to a full congressional vote. Vice President Mike Pence would also have to agree, which could slow down the process – or speed it up if he wanted the levers of power for himself. […]

Raskin’s plan could have a fatal flaw, however: Legal scholars tend to agree that when the Constitution’s framers first provided for the replacement of a president with an ‘inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the Office,’ they weren’t talking about mere eccentricities. And when the 25th Amendment was sent to the states for ratification in 1965, the Senate agreed that ‘inability’ meant that a president was ‘unable to make or communicate his decisions’ and suffered from a ‘mental debility’ rendering him ‘unable or unwilling to make any rational decision.‘ […]

Raskin has made no bones about the fact that his intentions are specific to President Trump. ‘Trump’s mental incapacity is no laughing matter,’ he tweeted last month. ‘#25thAmendment gives us a way to deal with this problem.’ Raskin summed up his reasoning for Yahoo News on Friday: ‘In case of emergency, break glass.’ ‘I assume every human being is allowed one or two errant and seemingly deranged tweets,’ he said. ‘The question is whether you have a sustained pattern of behavior that indicates something is seriously wrong.'”

President Trump shows no signs of being insane. But if Democrats have their way, the Oversight Committee on Presidential Capacity will declare him mentally incompetent and replace him with a more palatable and malleable President Pence.

The Soviet Union — and China today — used to do that. The Communist Party would declare perfectly sane political dissidents as insane and imprison them in mental hospitals.

That is what America’s Democrats want to do with President Trump — and with you and me.

The Left are trying to start a civil war

After the defeat of Hillary Clinton in last year’s presidential election, the Left are taking America’s decades-old “culture war” to a hot war of actual acts of violence and terrorism.

Kathy Griffin wants to behead President Trump

Both before and after President Trump was inaugurated, the Left poured on their hate and death threats. See:

But their targets aren’t just Trump and his family. It’s now open season on the Right — Trump supporters, Republicans, AltRight and conservatives:

Here are three more less-known recent incidents.

(1) Last Tuesday, June 13, 2017, shots were fired at a truck carrying a “Make America Great Again” flag and an American flag on eastbound I-465 in Indiana.

Fox59 reports that officers believe the shots were fired from a newer white 4-door Chevrolet Malibu with a Louisiana plate near Emerson Avenue around 4 p.m. The victim and a witness informed police that the Malibu pulled up next to the pickup truck, a passenger held a handgun out of the window and then a male fired several shots. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident.

The driver of the Malibu is described as a black male around the age of 23; the passenger is a light skinned black male with a sleeve tattoo on his right arm. Indiana state police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the shooting to call 317-899-8577.

(2) Yesterday, June 15, threatening letters containing a white powdery substance were placed in the mailboxes of Republican Karen Handel’s neighborhood in Roswell, Georgia.

Karen Handel is the former Secretary of State of Georgia (2007-2010) who is currently a candidate for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District Special Election.

Washington Free Beacon reports that police blocked off Georgia Republican Karen Handel’s neighborhood after threatening letters containing a white powdery substance were left in the mailboxes of Handel and her neighbors.

A neighborhood resident posted a picture (see below) of the contents of the envelope she received, including a threatening letter in graphic language, saying:

“Your neighbor Karen Handel is a dirty fascist cunt but I’m sure you already knew that. Take a whiff of the powder and join her in the hospital you Bourgeoisie motherfuckers. RESIST THE FASCIST TAKEOVER!!!! STRING UP THE COLLABORATORS!”

James Hodgkinson, Rep. Scalise’s shooter, had also ranted about Handel on Facebook, calling her a “Republican bitch”:

“Republican Bitch Wants People to Work for Slave Wages, when a Livable Wage is the Only Way to Go! Vote Blue, It’s Right for You!”

(3) Antifa post guidelines on how to spike pet treats with sharp objects and scatter them in conservative neighborhoods.

Yesterday, /pol/ News Forever @polNewsForever retweeted a tweet calling for targeting areas in Texas “where most altright and far right supporters live” with dog treats “weaponized” with nails. Here’s the original tweet:

American Renaissance has put together an anti-Trump hate map showing the Left’s growing violence against the Right — criminal incidents in which Trump supporters were targeted for political reasons. Each marker on the map shows the location of an anti-Trump hate crime: Red markers signify violent crimes; blue markers, property crimes; purple markers, “other” crimes.

The above shows that the Left are actively fomenting a civil war, which will happen when the Right have had enough and decide to push back.

As with Muslims, where are the voices of “moderate” Democrats/Progressives condemning the Left’s hate rhetoric and acts of violence? Where are the denunciations from Democrat leaders Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, et al.?

See also these other posts on the Left’s hate rhetoric and violence:

See “Conservative Blogger Found Guilty on 21 Counts for Self-Defense with a Firearm, Faces up to 50 Years in Prison” for what happened to a conservative, Michael Strickland, who fought back.

Handel is running neck-to-neck (47% vs. 47%) against Democrat Ossoff in Georgia’s Special House Election. Donate to her campaign here.

Michael Moore Launches “TrumpiLeaks” Website, Calls for Whistle-Blowers

response to Michael Moore

Similar to many with Trump Derangement Syndrome, Fat Boy’s life is consumed with his vision of a Trump impeachment.

From Hollywood Reporter: Michael Moore launched a website entitled “TrumpiLeaks” on Tuesday. The site is meant to “enable courageous whistle-blowers” to privately communicate with Moore and his team.

The filmmaker and activist — who’s been a frequent, outspoken critic of Trump — announced the launch with a letter on Huffington Post. In the letter he wrote that Donald Trump thinks, acts and has stated that he’s “above the law.” 

“Patriotic Americans in government, law enforcement or the private sector with knowledge of crimes, breaches of public trust and misconduct committed by Donald J. Trump and his associates are needed to blow the whistle in the name of protecting the United States of America from tyranny,” writes Moore.

On his site Moore offers a variety of ways to submit information, using tools he says are secure to protect anonymity if the source desires to do so. He’s accepting information in the form of documents, photographs and audio or video recordings.

“The power and the importance of whistleblowing is part of the American tradition and as old as the republic itself,” writes Moore. He quotes Vice President Mike Pence, who once defended whistleblowers and the freedom of the press.

“Compelling reporters to testify, and in particular, compelling reporters to reveal the identity of confidential sources, intrudes on the newsgathering process and hurts the public,” reads the Pence quote Moore highlights. “Without the assurance of confidentiality, many whistleblowers will simply refuse to come forward, and reporters will be unable to provide the American public with the information they need to make decisions as an informed electorate.”

Senate Democrats may refuse to vote on Trump FBI pick

Sen. Chuck Schumer

Schumer sticking to the talking point: Russia!

The party of obstruction.

From Yahoo: The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate said on Sunday that Democrats would consider refusing to vote on a new FBI director until a special prosecutor is named to investigate President Donald Trump’s potential ties to Russia.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said his caucus has not yet made a decision on whether to withhold their votes, but added that the issue is being looked at as a way to ensure there is a thorough investigation of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

“To have that special prosecutor, people would breathe a sigh of relief because then there would be a real independent person overlooking the FBI director,” Schumer told CNN’s “State of the Union” program.

Trump sparked a political firestorm when he abruptly fired James Comey, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week. The FBI has been investigating alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election and possible ties between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

Russia has denied the claims and the White House says there was no collusion.

Trump, who has sought better relations with Russia, has continued to question whether Russia was behind the hacking of email accounts belonging to Democrats involved in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

But Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told NBC’s “Meet the Press” program on Sunday there is no question that “the Russians were playing around in our electoral processes.”

He defended Trump’s decision to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office last week. “It’s in the interest of the American people, it’s in the interest of Russia and the rest of the world that we do something to see if we cannot improve the relationship between the two greatest nuclear powers in the world,” Tillerson said.

Democrats have accused Trump of attempting to thwart the FBI’s probe and have called for some type of independent inquiry into the matter.

Trump has said he removed Comey because he was not doing a good job and that Comey lost the support of FBI employees.

The Justice Department began interviewing candidates for the FBI director job on Saturday. Some people under consideration include acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas, New York Appeals Court Judge Michael Garcia and former Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher, according to a White House official.

If the Senate vote on an FBI director were to break down along strict party lines, Democrats would not have the votes to block a nominee.

Republicans control both chambers of the U.S. Congress. They hold 52 seats in the 100-member Senate, enough to approve a FBI nominee provided that no more than two Republican senators break ranks. In the event of a tie vote, Vice President Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote.

“The key is getting some of our Republican colleagues to join us,” Schumer said. Republican leaders in the Senate have rebuffed calls for a special prosecutor, saying it would interfere with ongoing congressional probes.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said on Sunday there may come a time when a special prosecutor is needed but not now. “Right now, it is a counterintelligence investigation, not a criminal investigation. So you don’t need a special prosecutor,” Graham said on “Meet the Press.”
