How’s that gun control working for London? Five attacks leave three dead in 24 hours

From BBC: Police have made 14 arrests after five separate attacks in London left three men dead and three others injured in the space of 24 hours.

An 18-year-old man was stabbed to death at about 16:42 BST on Friday in Wandsworth, south London. Police were called minutes later, at 16:54, to Plumstead, south-east London, where a 19-year-old man was shot dead.

A man in his 30s then died after he was stabbed in Tower Hamlets on Saturday afternoon.

In the early hours of Saturday two men were stabbed in Clapham and another was stabbed in Brixton.
The condition of one of the men injured in Clapham is not yet known, while the injuries sustained by the others are non life-threatening.

London mayor Sadiq Khan said he was “sickened” following the death of the two teenagers.

US President Donald Trump, who has a long-running political feud with Mr. Khan, took to Twitter to say London “needs a new mayor ASAP. Khan is a disaster – will only get worse!”

In response, a spokesman for Mr. Khan said the mayor was focused on supporting the city’s communities and “over-stretched” emergency services.

The mayor’s thoughts were with the victims’ families and he “is not going to waste his time responding to this sort of tweet”, he added.

Six males – aged between 16 and 19 – have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of the teenager in Wandsworth, who died from stab wounds in Deeside Road.

Tooting MP Rosena Allin-Khan said the killing was “heartbreaking” and “absolutely tragic”.

After the shooting in a car park in Hartville Road in Plumstead, three boys aged 16 and 17 and a 17-year-old girl were arrested on suspicion of murder.

Armed police, local officers, the London Ambulance Service and an air ambulance all attended, but the teenage victim died a short while later.

The deaths take the total number of murders in London in 2019 to 56. This time last year there had been 77 homicides, 48 of which were stabbings.

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.”

Psalm 52 speaks to CNN and MSNBC

Our answer to FAKE NEWS

Why do you boast of evil, you mighty man?
Why do you boast all day long, you who are a disgrace
in the eyes of God? 

Your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor,
you who practice deceit.

You love evil rather than good,
falsehood rather than speaking the truth. 

You love every harmful word, O you deceitful tongue! 

Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin:
He will snatch you up and tear you from your tent;
He will uproot you from the land of the living. 

The righteous will see and fear; they will
laugh at him, saying, 

“Here now is the man who did not make God his
stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew
strong by destroying others!” 

But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house
of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love
for ever and ever. 

I will praise You forever for what You have done;
in Your Name I will hope, for Your Name is good.
I will praise You in the presence of Your saints.  

– Psalm 52

Chelsea Handler slams President Trump for calling rifles entertainment: “Grounds for impeachment”

This egomaniac probably believes that the only “real entertainment” comes out of Hollyweird.

From Yahoo: Chelsea Handler is speaking out after Donald Trump defended semi-automatic AR-15 assault rifles as “entertainment.”

On Wednesday morning, the president’s interview with Piers Morgan for Good Morning Britain aired. In it, he explained that he doesn’t support gun control or weapons bans because gun owners “have a tremendous amount of fun.”

“Well, a lot of them used them for entertainment, they do,” Trump said when Morgan challenged asked “why anyone in America needs a semi-automatic AR-15 assault rifle at home.”

“Are guns entertainment?” Morgan shot back.

“For some people, it’s entertainment, they go out and they shoot and they go to ranges and they have a tremendous amount of fun,” Trump responded.

He also said that people would be “sitting ducks” without firearms and claimed that the 2015 attacks in Paris “would never have happened” if Bataclan concert-goers had been armed.

Trump’s comments angered Handler, one of his many celebrity critics. The comedian argued that the president’s description of semi-automatic assault rifles as “entertainment” is “grounds for impeachment.” She also called on politicians to back gun control and “stand up to the NRA.”

Many of her fans agreed, though, as some noted, being against gun control wouldn’t actually be grounds for impeachment. Gun control critics, however, called out Handler.

Handler may get her wish, as Congress may indeed launch an impeachment hearing against Trump over concerns of collusion and other alleged constitutional violations. Just days ago, his 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton, tweeted that “the president is not above the law,” which was seen as a call for Congress to take action.

This womyn needs to get herself to the range and shoot a Browning 9mm hi-power. Now that’s what I call entertainment!

UK comedian Jo Brand says, “throw acid at politicians instead of milkshakes”

Because battery acid attacks are hilarious! Just ask the Muslim women who are real victims of acid attacks.

How progressive and tolerant!

From The Sun: NIGEL Farage has accused comedian Jo Brand of “inciting violence” after she said politicians should have battery acid thrown at them instead of milkshakes.

The telly star, 61, was appearing on BBC Radio 4 when she joked about recent milkshake attacks on politicians, which included one hurled at the Brexit Party leader.

Farage, who had a banana and salted caramel Five Guys milkshake thrown on him while campaigning in Newcastle ahead of the EU elections last month, called for police to take action over ‘incitement of violence’.

Speaking on the Heresy show last night, Brand said: “Certain unpleasant characters are being thrown to the fore, and they’re very, very easy to hate. And I’m kind of thinking, why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?”

She added: “That’s just me, sorry, I’m not gonna do it, it’s purely a fantasy. But I think milkshakes are pathetic, I honestly do. Sorry.

Responding to that today Farage said: “This is incitement of violence and the police need to act.”

Brendan Cox, whose Labour MP wife Jo Cox was murdered by a far-right fanatic in her own constituency in June 2016, tweeted: “I dislike Nigel Farage‘s politics profoundly. But I don’t think throwing stuff at politicians you disagree with is a good idea. It normalises violence and intimidation and we should consistently stand again it.”

Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom confirmed it had received 19 complaints from angry listeners since the show was broadcast.

The sick gag was met with howls of laughter from the studio audience and show host Victoria Coren Mitchell didn’t appear concerned by the remarks.

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan said: “Disgusting. This is an incitement for people to throw acid at politicians. Shame on you, Jo Brand.”

Leave.EU tweeted: “Absolutely disgusting remark by so-called “comedian” Jo Brand, who suggested last night on @BBCRadio4 that we throw battery acid at our politicians.

“Is this sort of hate speech what we fund the @BBC for? Shameful!”

But fellow comedians defended the star, with Lee Hurst writing: “Jo Brand is a comedian. She has made a joke. You may not find it funny or you may find it funny. Comedy is subjective. If you criticise her because you like her target, but defend other jokes of a similar nature against targets you don’t like you are a hypocrite.

The BBC refused to apologise for the broadcast and said remarks on the comedy show were ‘not intended to be taken seriously’.

A spokeswoman said: “Heresy is a long-running comedy programme where, as the title implies and as our listeners know, panellists often say things which are deliberately provocative and go against societal norms but are not intended to be taken seriously.”

Womyn who runs hotel in small-town Michigan offers free lodging to women seeking abortions

From Yahoo: Incensed by the spate of legislation severely limiting abortion rights in several states, the manager of a hotel in a small Michigan town posted an unusual offer on Facebook last month.

“Dear sisters,” Shelley O’Brien began in a post addressed to those who live in the states that have or are trying to restrict access to abortion. “We cannot do anything about the way you are being treated in your home-state,” she wrote. “But, if you can make it to Michigan, we will support you with several nights lodging, and transportation to and from your appointment” for abortion services.

The “support” includes staying at the Yale Hotel for free.

O’Brien, 55, runs the hotel in Yale, Michigan. According to The Detroit Free Press, the community near the state’s eastern boundary is perhaps best known for its annual Bologna Festival, which takes place every July. It’s a largely conservative town with a population of under 2,000.

O’Brien, a mother of three and a grandmother of seven, told CNN on Saturday that she felt compelled to take a stand after watching such states as Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio and Kentucky pass bills that seek to significantly impede a woman’s access to abortion.

Efforts also have been made in Michigan to restrict abortion rights, including introduction last month in the state Legislature of a so-called heartbeat bill that would ban the procedures after a fetal heartbeat is detected ― a point when many women remain unaware that they are pregnant. (Nice, unbiased reporting there, HuffPo…)

“Women should have autonomy over their own bodies,” O’Brien said. “If we do not have control over our own bodies, then this is not a free world.”

In her Facebook post, which garnered thousands of reactions, O’Brien promised that she’d provide several nights free lodging at the Yale Hotel, as well as “transportation to and from your appointment” for out-of-state women seeking an abortion in Michigan.

Speaking to the Free Press last week, O’Brien clarified that her offer “extends to anybody” seeking an abortion who may need support, including women who live in parts of her own state where abortion providers are few and far between. The paper noted that there are no abortion providers in Yale, but women can find such services an hour’s drive away.

O’Brien said no one had yet taken her up on her offer, but she has a room set aside for when someone does. She told CNN that she’d dubbed the space “Jane’s Room” in honor of Jane Roe, the pseudonym given to Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in the Roe v. Wade case that in 1973 established a woman’s right to an abortion throughout the U.S.

“The only way this is going to change is if people are willing to risk something,” O’Brien, who’s been called a “baby killer” for her views, told CNN. “The reason they get away with stuff like this is because nobody wants to make waves, nobody wants to give up anything for it.”

Police warn against using gun-shaped cellphone cases

I kinda agree with this. Someone who spots you with this could call the cops on you as an “armed” person and next thing you know, the police are coming after you with guns drawn.

Plus I would never advertise the fact that I was carrying (whether it be via a cell phone case or a real firearm).

From Daily Mail: Police are asking the public to not carry plastic cellphone cases shaped like guns.

The plea comes after Illinois Conservation Police officers discovered one particular cell phone charging case during a traffic stop at Illinois Beach State Park in Zion that was so realistic-looking, police made an arrest.

The suspect was carrying it in his waistband just similar to how a real firearm might be positioned leading the officer to mistake it for a real gun. The officer did not know it was actually a phone case until after the suspect was arrested according to the Chicago Tribune.

During one traffic stop, officers held up the drivers of a stolen vehicle. One of the occupants had the cell phone case tucked into his front waistband with only the ‘pistol handle’ portion exposed above the waist line.

The man ended up having to be placed in handcuffs before it could be removed. Only then did it become apparent it was a cell phone case and not a real firearm.

Because the gun phone case is not illegal to carry in Illinois, outside of Chicago, police did not seize it.

However, law enforcement are now requesting people not to carry such lookalikes saying the cases could end up being dangerous for both civilians and police.

In a Facebook post, the Department of Natural Resources said, ‘DO NOT carry products like this around!! It is dangerous and places all citizens and officers in unnecessary risk of harm.’

‘This incident serves as a reminder how quickly situations unfold for Officers under high-stress conditions, often leaving fractions of a second to make critical decisions,’ the post continued.

Gun-shaped cell phone cases are illegal in Chicago and in some other cities but they are not banned outside of the city. They are easily available to purchase on eBay and from stores that ship them from overseas. It is not clear who manufactures the case.

‘Win the Darwin award of the year by carrying your phone around in this gun shaped iPhone case. If you’re dumb enough to actually buy this case you are asking for problems with law enforcement,’ wrote one person online.

Professor argues that illegal aliens can hurt US economy, prompting calls for his firing

Professor Zhou/Georgia Gwinnett College photo

Truth shall not be told.

From Fox News: A college professor in Georgia is drawing criticism for his online comments about illegal immigrants, including his contention that people in the U.S. illegally can be a drain on the nation’s economy.

“If you are going to reward illegal immigrants, there will be more illegal immigrants,” Fang Zhou, an associate professor of history at Georgia Gwinnett College near Atlanta, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Zhou says he welcomes the criticism, including from those who say he should lose his job, according to the report. “I am against political correctness,” Zhou, a legal immigrant from China, told the newspaper. “I speak truth to power in class and my students learn about the financial drain of illegal immigration on the economy and the high crime rates of illegal immigrants. My students are ‘woke’ and are overwhelmingly against illegal immigration after taking my class,” he added.

But Zhou told the paper he does not force students to share his opinions.

His critics, however, argue that many of Zhou’s assertions have been debunked and they object to some of the terms he uses in his comments, such as “libtards,” and “ghetto thugs.”

One such critic, according to the report, is Georgia state Rep. Bee Nguyen (demorat), the first Vietnamese-American elected to the state’s House of Representatives.Nguyen posted some of Zhou’s comments on Twitter this week and asked her followers: “Are these the values supported by Georgia Gwinnett College?”

“I have concerns about him teaching those things in a classroom,” Nguyen, a Democrat, told the Journal-Constitution. She noted that nearly 70 percent of the college’s students are either African-American, Asian or Hispanic, and planned to write to college officials to formally complain about Zhou.

College officials did not respond directly to the newspaper’s request for comment but shared the school’s “academic freedom policy,” which stipulates that faculty members are allowed to express their views “without fear of censure.”

The same policy, however, told faculty members that they “should remember that the public may judge” their profession and the college by what they say and write.

Storeowner tells patron, “I don’t tell anyone what to believe” after he was offended by rebel flag vest

Yahoo’s original headline: “Vintage clothing store owner calls police on black man who objected to rebel flag vest.”

I prefer to highlight the fact that a store patron can ignore the fact that this is America and shop owners can legally sell whatever they want to sell.

But in today’s environment, every progressive has proclaimed themselves the SJW monitors of all that they deem good, correct and proper.

From Yahoo: The owner of a vintage clothing store called the police on a customer who asked why he was selling a rebel flag vest.

On May 25th, Nathaniel Dennis and his friends visited Beatnix on Halsted, an antique store that sells Halloween and theatre costumes, wigs, pride and transgender flags and makeup. The store is in the Boystown neighborhood of Chicago, home of much of the city’s LGBTQ residents.

Dennis has shopped at the store a lot, but until that day, hadn’t seen a leather vest with a rebel battle flag imprint. “We were looking at graphic T-shirts when my friend Dan Shade called me over to look at the vest,” Dennis, 32, tells Yahoo Lifestyle.

The symbol was distasteful to Dennis, a black gay man from Georgia, and he was curious why his favorite boutique frequented by largely marginalized customers would sell it.

Shade and Dennis quietly approached the cashier, who referred them to a manager. “He basically said, ‘Well, we sell vintage items. I don’t tell anyone what to believe’ and sent us to the owner.”

Dennis says owner Keith Bucceri admitted the vest wasn’t appropriate merchandise for the main sales floor and tossed it behind the counter. “But then he brought up Jussie Smollett,” the former Empire actor who claimed to be victimized by a racist assault in January.

“He said, ‘You shouldn’t be making up things that aren’t true like Jussie Smollett,” recalled Dennis. “I told him, ‘Why should we be subjected to symbols like this? As a black person, I am offended.’”

According to Dennis, Bucceri accused the men of dramatics. “He was so combative, saying, ‘Get it through your thick f***ing skull, it’s not racist,’” he says. “He said we were trespassing and to ‘get the f**** out’ or he would call the police.”

Dennis says an employee picked up the phone, so he and his group left. A representative of the Chicago Police Department’s 19th District did not respond to an information request from Yahoo Lifestyle. A police officer told Block Club Chicago that a phone call was made from the store about a man “refusing” to leave but no official complaint exists.

“I didn’t want to be the next unarmed black man shot or killed by the police, so we left,” Dennis tells Yahoo Lifestyle.

However, Shade re-entered the store to take a photo of the discarded vest. “The owner had no problem with me coming back,” Shade, 29, tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “He said ‘Your friend wasn’t listening,’ as if we were on the same side.”

Since the friends posted photos of the vest on Facebook, they say former store employees have shared unflattering stories about Bucceri. And the brand’s Facebook page is battling with enraged reviewers. Bucceri did not respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s phone messages and email.

The store wrote on Facebook, “We do not sell that type of merchandise normally, it was not a shirt, it was a leather vest and wasn’t being sold to support any such ideas. It was taken off the floor and the customer didn’t want to stop going on about it and when he wouldn’t stop…was asked to leave and yes the police were called and when they came they said they could arrest him for criminal trespassing….and I said that would not be necessary….if you choose not to come to Beatnix that is your choice, but based on this sloppy person’s very poor listening skills and insistence on arguing a point unnecessarily since the item in question was taken off the floor..it seems irrational.”

On Wednesday night, Dennis appeared at a community meeting at a bar across the street from Beatnix. “As a black person, you have to pick and choose what situations you want to pursue, because it’s mentally exhausting,” Dennis tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “But I think this is important.”

Perpetual victimhood: Failed demorat congressional candidate Saira Rao is a miserable womyn who hates everything

Via Ryan Saavedra’s Twitter timeline the other night, I discovered a miserable demorat womyn. Her name is Saira Rao and she ran, unsuccessfully, for Congress in Denver. From her Twitter bio:

“Writer| Columnist @browngirlmag and author of upcoming BROKEN NEWS @mcsweeneys. Founder @intogethermedia. she/her/hers”

She is apparently a “brown girl” and has a serious problem with many things in America:

The American flag
Perceived “white privilege”
White men
White folks

She also claims that: “If you are not actively anti-racist, you are actively racist.”

And this: “White people have done everything to make my life miserable. Yet I’m supposed to not hate white people?”

Her Twitter timeline gives a glimpse into the liberal mind of misery, hate, misconstrued perceptions, and mental disorder.

Imagine going through life being so miserable and having such a sense of perceived victimhood. And having the desire to share your misery on social media.

Sounds like the girl needs some therapy…
