Seattle Mayor Durkan: President Trump should “spend a little more time learning from cities like Seattle”

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan

President Trump has threatened to send illegal aliens to sanctuary cities.

Sounds like Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan is more than happy to accept them. In fact, she’s trying to convince her followers that she’s shown such great leadership that Seattle is more than capable of handling the illegal aliens they want to protect.

Apparently because she has solved all the city’s problems.

Here’s the proof:

From Mayor Durkan’s Twitter timeline:

Instead of threatening immigrant families and the cities that welcome them, this president should spend a little more time learning from cities like Seattle. @TIME

Retweet of Mayor Eric Garcetti‏: “L.A. isn’t afraid either!”

Retweet of Meet the Press: “WATCH: Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) responds to President Trump’s threats to transport immigrants to sanctuary cities. #MTP @JayInslee: “You can’t threaten somebody with something they’re not afraid of. And we are not afraid of diversity in the state of Washington.”

If you read through the good mayor’s Twitter responses, you’ll find there are less than 1% positive responses to her Tweets. Example replies to her include the following:

This mayor is a state embarrassment and a clown. Only wakes up when its time to get on camera. The mayor is equally worthelss and a disgrace. Inslee has as much chance as me being Pope. And my odds are better.”

“Hey here’s an idea. Stop worrying about @realDonaldTrump and fix our shithole homeless issue in #seattle and #Washington @MayorJenny @JayInslee are the worst. One talks out of both sides of his mouth, the other is just full of shits. #politics”

“They won’t find housing but we’ve decided tents in cities streets are acceptable and the garbage left for tax payers look at. Get it together!”

“Make Tent Cities Great Again”

“Again, stop with the political posturing. Your ran a campaign on fixing Seattle’s homeless problem. You haven’t done shit. Fix our city, then worry about @realDonaldTrump #seattle deserves better”

“Are you serious? Take a look around our once beautiful city. A huge mess!!!

“It isn’t “your city”. It’s the citizens city and they are over your lack of leader ship and what you’ve done to destroy What was once a beautiful place to live.”

“Learn what….how to destroy a city? You and your liberal friends and this disgusting governor @JayInslee have ruined it. He pushed the homeless in Olympia into the neighborhoods and you’ve continued the path of destruction for a once great city. Shut up!”

Elections have consequences, Seattle! Sure sucks to be you right now…

NY demorats gave $27 million to children of illegal aliens who receive preferen$e over children of US military

That’s not a typo in my headline. NY demorats give $27 million taxpayer dollars to children of illegal aliens. Children of US military? They get $2.7 million allocated to their education.

As reported by the NY Post: Democrats set aside $27 million in tuition assistance for the children of undocumented immigrants in the new state budget — but wouldn’t add hundreds of thousands of dollars to expand a similar program for kids of deceased and disabled veterans.

A bill that has twice passed the state Senate — but never made it through the Assembly — would have added funding to a program that provides free tuition, room and board at any SUNY or CUNY college to children, spouses and financial dependents of “fallen soldiers” who died, became severely disabled or were classified as missing in action while serving in the military after 1990.

Such a program already exists and serves 145 students at a cost of $2.7 million — but only for relatives and dependents of vets who served in combat zones. The Assembly Higher Education Committee voted 15-11 against allocating more funds to the program as part of the state budget.

Assemblywoman Deborah Glick (D-Manhattan), who chairs the committee, said budget constraints weighed against the program expansion, which she estimated would have cost several hundred thousand dollars.

“We will make every effort to ensure going forward, we have some additional resources allocated to the program so that as an entitlement, it is not falling short of the needs of our military families,” she said.

But State Sen. Robert Ortt (R-Niagara), a sponsor of the measure, said the Assembly’s failure to act sends a distressing signal to military families.

“Assemblywoman Glick should be ashamed of herself,” said Ortt. “We set aside $27 million dollars for college for people that are here illegally… Apparently $2.7 million is all that the families of soldiers who are killed, get. If you’re a child of a fallen solider, you do not rank as high and you know that by the money.”

Glick called the criticism a “cheap shot” on Twitter. “The bill-though laudable-had a budgetary impact which the committee routinely doesn’t consider post-budget. We did promise to see funding in the future [that] considers potential additional eligible individuals. Cheap shot,” she wrote.

Assemblywoman Judy Griffin (D-L.I), one of four Assembly Democrats who voted in favor of the bill, said it should be a priority next year.

“I voted for the bill because I think it’s important, especially after that FDNY firefighter was killed in Afghanistan, so heartbreaking. But I voted yes knowing the bill would be held because it was a tough budget year and as the chairwoman said, there just wasn’t the funding in the budget. But now we know for next year, [so] we will make it a priority and hopefully pass it.”

Survey shows that millennials trust YouTube stars and bloggers more than their parents

From Daily Mail: Youngsters trust the stars of social media more than their parents, according to new research that reveals how digital habits are sidelining family and friends.

Experts found that 18- to 35-year-olds – the millennial generation – are twice as likely to trust internet ‘influencers’ as a close relative or companion.

Dubbing them ‘gullennials’ – for gullible millennials – researchers found 53 per cent believe advice on Facebook, Instagram and from online bloggers is more reliable than from family and friends when booking a holiday.

Critics, however, warn that online advice is not always unbiased or trustworthy. Companies are increasingly sponsoring posts by celebrities who can subtly use their influence among their millions of followers to increase sales.

As a result, social-media influencers can earn vast sums by promoting lifestyle products and holiday destinations to huge fanbases. The digital agency 383 surveyed 2,032 UK adults on the trustworthiness of internet recommendations.

Spokesman Sukhi Dehal said: ‘It’s a huge concern that the younger generation is so trusting of a source that may or may not be telling the whole truth. ‘Yes, be inspired by social media, but it’s important travellers do their homework with a broader spectrum of trusted resources – whether that’s family and friends or reputable travel-relevant sites.’

Gillette continues their quest to be “woke” by promoting obesity and transgenders

Back in January Gillette showcased an ad entitled, “We Believe: The Best Men Can Be.

It highlighted what appeared to be toxic masculinity, bullying and the #MeToo movement. In some ways it was shaming men and boys for being boys.

Gillette promoting morbid obesity

They are now doubling down on their obvious progressive agenda with their new Gillette Venus campaign which features fat women and transgender models. From their Twitter:

Venus is committed to representing beautiful women of all shapes, sizes, and skin types because ALL types of beautiful skin deserve to be shown. We love Anna because she lives out loud and loves her skin no matter how the “rules” say she should display it”

Gillette Venus is also promoting the transgender known as Jazz Jennings:

“I think when you’re coming into your own with your identity, shaving is a form of expression,” @JazzJennings__ , the face of Gillette Venus’ new campaign #MySkinMyWay, tells R29. “When I was transitioning, shaving my legs was that first step.”

Jazz Jennings for Gillette, promoting the scientifically impossible

They is NOTHING beautiful about being morbidly obese. Not. One. Thing.

And there is nothing beautiful about promoting the idea that one can physically change their gender because it is biologically impossible.

But you continue down the “woke” slide, Gillette. Just ask Dick’s Sporting Goods how that is working for them.

Perpetual victimhood: Lena Dunham gets a tattoo that says, “sick”

Liberals are miserable creatures. They are self-loathing and forever a victim of something.

So I was not surprised to see on libtard Lena Dunham’s Instagram that she got a new tattoo that says, “sick.”

FYI: Dunham suffers from endometriosis, of which the main symptoms are pelvic pain and infertility. It is not curable yet is treatable.

From her Instagram post:

“sometimes the thing you’re most scared of being called is the best thing you can call yourself. thank you @havenstudiobk for labeling me… and to my sisters in this dizzying but starry slog- i am lasso’d to you!”

Hey, her body, her choice.

Most people would focus on the positive aspects of life. Maybe one who is happy would choose to get a tattoo that says “enjoy life” or “carpe diem.”

But I’m guessing that Dunham isn’t too happy. After all, she already displays a tattoo that seeks some type of approval as it says, “love me.”

Teen Vogue asks, “Is there something called biological sex?”

Yes, there is. The answer is rooted in real “science” and “biology.”

But according to Teen Vogue, “who you are is who you say you are.”

Who I say I am…trans species!

Who I say I am…genderless alien!

Who I say I am…trans abled!

I can’t even with these people and their feeeeeeeeeeeeelings.

Whoopi Goldberg defends Creepy Joe Biden (of course); doesn’t want him to change his ways

From Yahoo (via HuffPo): Whoopi Goldberg defended former Vice President Joe Biden following an allegation that he inappropriately touched and kissed a former Nevada assemblywoman, saying she doesn’t want the likely 2020 Democratic presidential candidate to change his behavior.

Goldberg, a co-host on ‘The View,’ was irked when colleague Sunny Hostin predicted during Monday’s program that Biden would curb his tactile tendencies with women after Lucy Flores said she felt uncomfortable when Biden placed his hands on her shoulders, smelled her hair and kissing the back of her head at a 2014 campaign event. Flores was the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor in Nevada and Biden was appearing on her behalf.

“I don’t know that we will see any more smelling of hair and kisses on the forehead,” Hostin said of the controversy, eliciting a strong rebuke from Goldberg.

“That pisses me off,” she said. “I don’t want Joe to stop doing that.”

Meghan McCain, another “View” co-host and daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), agreed, suggesting Biden’s behavior was simply part of his brand.

“There’s a certain type of retail politician that loves people,” she said. “I would put Bill Clinton in that category, I would put my father in that category, I would certainly put Joe Biden in that category. When he came on this show, he was the only politician other than my father to go into the crowd and shake everyone’s hand.”

Bill Clinton…a “hands on kind of guy”

Goldberg also noted that Biden is known to be “a hands-on kind of guy,” which is evident from photos of his interpersonal interactions spanning years, some of which show him touching shoulders and at least one in which he is pictured holding a reporter’s waist.

“In the old days, we would call Joe ― some folks of a certain age would say he’s a little overly familiar,” Goldberg said.

Goldberg said that she took Flores’ account seriously. But she also argued that Flores, who lost the lieutenant governor’s race, should have directly told Biden to stop.

“My point is, I want women to get to the place where they can say, ‘Hey, you just made me uncomfortable.’ This idea that you have to tippy-toe away from this or you have to carry [it] ― you do not have to carry it. If someone makes you uncomfortable, tell them.

On Sunday, moments before Flores appeared on CNN to discuss the allegation that she first detailed in a New York magazine article published Friday, Biden released a statement saying he would “listen respectfully” to women alleging he had displayed inappropriate affection toward them but that it had never been his intention to do so.

He also said that “not once ― never ― did I believe I acted inappropriately.

During her CNN interview, Flores suggested that Biden’s comments indicate he lacks awareness of how women ought to be treated. She also said that her experience wasn’t the first time he crossed boundaries.

Biden’s defense of himself was bolstered on Sunday by Stephanie Carter, whose husband served as defense secretary during President Barack Obama’s second term in office. Biden, as vice president, attended the swearing-in ceremony for Ash Carter, and a widely circulated photo showed him resting his hands on her shoulders from behind and whispering into her ear.

Questions were raised at the time about Biden’s action. But in an essay in Medium, Stephanie Carter disputed that Biden had acted inappropriately. “The Joe Biden in my picture is a close friend helping someone get through a big day, for which I will always be grateful,” she wrote.

Bonfire of the Tech Vanities

Burning Free Speech

by Ben Garrison

The authoritarian left continues to shut down free speech and they’re getting away with it.

“…The Deep State and their collectivist media are trying to regain control of the narrative of what is true. They want to again control what people think. They’ve been losing the narrative and the argument. The only way they can win now is to censor conservatives and whistle blowers. It won’t end with shutting down our free speech. PayPal and banking services will be denied to those smeared as ‘hate speech’ purveyors. Not only will their social media access be blocked, their website domains will be pulled. This is probably one of the reasons Obama wanted to hand the Internet over to foreign, globalist hands…”

And now Project Veritas is unmasking the covert menace called Facebook.

Thank you Mr. O’Keefe.

Rapper Cardi B says she drugged, robbed men because she had “limited options”

Don’t believe the feminists’ lies. Stripper careers do not “empower” women.

And as for Cardi B and her “limited options” excuse, girlfriend should learn about Nick Vujicic. Not everyone succumbs to the notion of perpetual victimhood…

From Fox News: After a video surfaced of Cardi B admitting to robbing and drugging men, the singer is explaining herself.

In the clip from an Instagram Live recorded three years ago, the rapper said, “I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to f–k me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go back to this hotel,’ and I drugged n—–s up, and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do,” (via Hip Hop Ratchet) she explained.

After horrified social media users responded to the 26-year-old star’s confession with the hashtag #SurvivingCardiB (in reference to the R. Kelly documentary “Surviving R. Kelly”) Cardi took to Instagram to explain her actions.

“So I’m seeing on social media that [an Instagram] live I did 3 years ago has popped back up. A live where I talked about things I had to do in my past right or wrong that I felt I needed to do to make a living,” she wrote in a post on Tuesday. “I never claim (sic) to be perfect or come from a perfect world wit (sic) a perfect past I always speak my truth I always own my s–t.”

The star said that while many artists glorify violence and crime, that was never her style.

“There are rappers that glorify murder violence drugs an (sic) robbing. Crimes they feel they had to do to survive,” she said. “I never glorified the things I brought up in that live I never even put those things in my music because I’m not proud of it and feel responsibility not to glorify it.”

While the former stripper said she was not proud of her actions, she felt they were necessary at the time.

I made the choices that I did at the time because I had very limited options. I was blessed to have been able to rise from that but so many women have not,” she said. “Whether or not they were poor choices at the time I did what I had to do to survive.”

And the Bronx native clarified that all the men she referred to in the clip were men who she was dating and she claims they knew what she was doing.

“The men I spoke about in my life were men that I dated that I was involved with men that [they] were conscious willing and aware,” she said. “I have a past that I can’t change we all do.”

She continued, “all I can do now is be a better me for myself my family and my future.”

Cardi is married to rapper Offset, with whom she shares 8-month-old daughter, Kulture.
