‘Hillary’s America’ movie in theaters this weekend

Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary movie, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of Democratic Party, is open in theaters nationwide this weekend.

The Obama administration tried to destroy D’Souza. See his account in Stealing America: What My Experience with Criminal Gangs Taught Me about Obama, Hillary, and the Democratic Party.

Hillary’s America: The Secret History of Democratic Party exposes Hillary Clinton and the lies told by the Left. As such, it is the most important movie to see before you vote.

We conservatives already know about Hillary, but others may not. Please encourage your family, your friends and co-workers to see this powerful movie this weekend.

Trump’s acceptance speech pivots on America & Americans First

Did you watch Donald Trump’s speech as the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential nominee last night?

What do you think of it?

If you haven’t watched it, here it is:

It was long, because Trump did not rush his words, but clearly and emphatically articulated (and sometimes shouted) important points he wanted to impress on Americans, and because he paused often, to acknowledge the reaction from the Convention delegates. All of which was not the performance of someone just reading from a teleprompter. Instead, this was a speaker who wanted to convey and impress on his listeners the gravity of America’s problems and how he would deal with those problems.

The heart of Trump’s message is a simple one:

America and Americans First

That principle should be self-evident, requiring no defense or justification — for who else but Americans would and should put America and Americans first? Don’t you put your own and your family’s wellbeing first? How is America to help others if America falls apart? And yet, we haven’t heard this overriding principle from other politicians, not even from Trump’s GOP primary rivals. It is also a message that the Left and their MSM accomplices, as well as the GOP elites, distort and malign as something evil — that standing up for and putting America first is “nativist,” “jingoist,” “fascist”…, as if the obligation of America and Americans is to be a doormat for the rest of the world.

From his central principle of “America and Americans First” — of making America rich and strong again — flows these derivative values and principles:

  1. Law and Order: A country that is in chaos cannot thrive economically. A fundamental responsibility of government is to protect and ensure the safety of the governed against criminals, whether criminals here illegally or those gunning down police. To ensure Americans’ safety, Trump is committed to our right to arm ourselves which is guaranteed by the Second Amendment. It is also on the theme of Law and Order that Trump indicts Hillary Clinton for her lawlessness in having a private email-server while she was secretary of state, and for the Obama FBI’s refusal to indict her for violating U.S. laws and endangering national security with unsecured emails containing classified state secrets and names of CIA agents.
  2. Secure Our Borders, to protect Americans against the flood of illegals, many of whom are criminals, and of Muslim “refugees” who the FBI has admitted cannot be vetted to exclude terrorists. On this, Trump reminds blacks that they are the economic victims of Obama’s and Hillary’s open-border policy, and that LGBTs were the victims of a Muslim gunman in Orlando. In so doing, without explicitly saying it, Trump reminds whites and straights that blacks and LGBTs are Americans, and putting “America First” should also mean putting all “Americans First”.
  3. A strong military, and better treatment for our veterans.
  4. In foreign policy and affairs, the United States will jealously guard our interests, be they financial, trade, or security. Trade treaties and arrangements will be rexamined and renegotiated, in order to restore America’s manufacturing industries and jobs. Our allies will have to pay their “fair share” for military defense (Japan, South Korea, but no mention of Israel) and step up to the plate against terrorism (NATO).
  5. Revive U.S. economy: Via restoring manufacturing jobs, getting allies to pay their fair share of defense costs, and lowering taxes.
  6. Populism: Trump ended his speech by telling America that unlike Hillary, who asks if Democrats are “with her,” his message is that he is “with you, the American people”.

Trump also graciously thanked Christians and Evangelicals for their support, saying he’s not sure he deserves it, which is uncharacteristically humble for him.

So how was Trump’s speech received by GOP elites?

If the editor of a supposedly conservative publication is an indication, it’s bad news for anyone hoping for Republican party unity to defeat Hillary, who will complete the destruction of America. Below is the shockingly vicious “The Demagogue Rises,” by Matthew Continetti, editor-in-chief of The Washington Free Beacon:

Donald Trump delivered the longest, loudest convention speech in recent memory when he accepted the Republican nomination for president Thursday evening. He made no attempt to “pivot to the general election,” moderate his agenda, smooth over rough rhetoric. Gone was Mitt Romney’s Etch-a-Sketch, tossed into a dustbin with George W. Bush’s Freedom Agenda, George H.W. Bush’s Thousand Points of Light, Ronald Reagan’s Morning in America. Trump was his usual self: brash, boisterous, overbearing, defiant, inimitable, roiling with anger over the state of the country and the corruption, ineffectiveness, and arrogance of the nation’s elite. Trump won’t change, won’t learn, won’t listen, won’t apologize, won’t cavil, won’t conform to the traditions of presidential politics or adhere to the norms of political discourse. He doesn’t care about facts, he wants to overturn the postwar international order, he champions the will to power, he mercilessly attacks opponents. He’s a demagogue in dark suits, electric ties. I can only imagine what he’d be capable of if he were competent.

Because he’s not competent. He is actually truly, magnificently inept. The convention was a mess, haphazard, disorganized, weird. The botched roll call vote, Melania’s plagiarism, Ted Cruz’s hand grenade, the leaked speech draft—all of these gaffes and scandals occurred against the backdrop of dismal attendance, chants to put Hillary in prison, bizarre speakers, rambling addresses, early departures, and testimonies to Trump’s greatness. His campaign has practically no money, no advertising, no infrastructure, no grassroots operation. The other day, when he expressed uncertainty about whether the United States would lead NATO in defense of the Baltic States if they were attacked by Russia, Trump made history by provoking an international incident without even being president. Many GOP officials wouldn’t come near the convention, including Ohio’s popular governor. There are two Republican parties for the moment: the party led by Trump and the Republican Party in exile, the party of Kasich and Larry Hogan and Nikki Haley and Charlie Baker and Brian Sandoval and Mark Kirk and Ted Cruz. Election Day won’t just determine who will succeed President Obama. It will also determine the fate of Donald J. Trump’s hostile takeover of the GOP.

Continetti all but calls Trump a Hitler, and Americans who support Trump mindless Nazis.

Note that Continetti’s criticisms of Trump are all about style, not substantive issues — that Trump was “brash,” “boisterous,” and “mercilessly attacks opponents,” and that he did not pay obeisance to GOP old guard elites, who to the end strove to undermine Trump and boycotted the Republican National Convention. As for the “opponents” whom Trump “mercilessly attacked,” since the only “opponents” Trump attacked were Hillary Clinton and big business fat-cats (with apologies to cats) who hollowed out the U.S. economy with their outsourcing of jobs, that should tell us whose side Continetti is on.

If Hillary wins, it will be because of Republicans like Matthew Continetti who reserve their most vicious venom not for Democrats, but for a fellow Republican and patriot who simply wants to put America and Americans first. Should Hillary become president, the victory of Continetti, Bill Kristol, the Bushes, et al., against Trump will be pyrrhic because all that will be left of their Republican Party is an empty shell, devoid of rank-and-file members.

So what do you think of Trump’s speech? Take our simple short poll!

Shooting at ‘Stop the Violence Beach Party’ kills 19-year-old

Another feel-good rally that does nothing to stop the actual violence.

Phillips Banks

From Fox News: Ohio police on Tuesday were investigating a shooting at an impromptu anti-violence rally that killed a 19-year-old man and wounded a 12-year-old boy. As many as 300 people filled a lakeside park Sunday night in Euclid, outside Cleveland, for the “Stop the Violence Beach Party” when the shots rang out.

The Cuyahoga County medical examiner said Phillip Banks was shot in the head and died later in a nearby hospital. Police did not identify the 12-year-old boy. They said he was shot in the back. Paramedics rushed him to the hospital.

Residents had organized the beach party on the shore of Lake Erie.

Police said they were trying to determine who exactly was the target of the shooting.

They were also investigating whether another shooting in the area later in the evening was related. Police said somebody shot an 18-year-old in the shoulder, but the man survived.

In March, stray bullet hit a 13-year-old Chicago boy who had appeared in an anti-violence video campaign. The teen, Zarriel Trotter, survived.

Taco Bell fires server who told two police deputies ‘they don’t serve cops anymore’

Adios imbécil.

blue lives matter

From Daily Mail: A Taco Bell employee in Alabama has been fired after two police deputies were denied service.

The uniformed deputies were told by the cashier on Saturday night in Phenix City that they wouldn’t be served and they needed to leave, according to Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones, who said he confirmed the account with multiple sources, according to WTVM.

Taco Bell spokeswoman Laura Nedbal said in a statement to news outlets that the restaurant’s franchise owner has since fired the unidentified employee.

On Saturday, Tammy Bush Mayo of Auburn posted on Facebook that her husband, who is a deputy, recounted a story about another deputy who went to the Taco Bell in the town and apparently was told they ‘don’t serve cops’. She claimed that additionally another woman in the establishment ‘spoke up to say that she was about to ask for a refund because she didn’t want to eat somewhere with a cop’.

Mayo went on to say: ‘This really disturbs me that people have started treating law enforcement professionals in this manner when these same law enforcement professionals put their lives on the line every day to protect all people, including this woman with a very bad attitude at Taco Bell.’

She later clarified her post that the incident happened to two deputies on her husband’s shift.

Friends on her wall were outraged, with one writing: ‘I can’t even coherently comment on this. What a B**CH! If I had been there, she would have gotten an earful and I would have bought lunch for the officer,’ commented one poster.

Lee said the deputies asked if the cashier was kidding and the cashier allegedly responded: ‘No, I’m not serving you.’ A customer in store also commented, allegedly saying she was glad the cashier wasn’t serving them because she would not eat there if they had been served.

Nedbal says Taco Bell does not endorse the employee’s sentiment. She says the franchise owner has apologized to the sheriff’s office. 

Hours after the deputies were denied service, two police officers and a sheriff deputy were killed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, after weeks of protest against police in that city. The protests began after two police officers shot dead Alton Sterling.

Nine days earlier, five police officers were gunned down in Dallas while guarding protesters involved in a Black Lives Matter rally.

According to WTVM, Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones released a statement saying, ‘I’m very disappointed that simply because they were uniformed law enforcement officers that our deputies were treated in such negative fashion. We pride ourselves in giving people basic respect and only ask the same in return.’

‘I am inclined to believe that this was the attitude of one employee and not the policy of the management. The fair thing is to give them an opportunity to respond. We won’t base our opinion of Taco Bell on one employee’s negative action any more than the general public should base their opinion of law enforcement on the negative action of one officer.’

Jones says the sheriff’s office appreciates the restaurant’s response to the incident, which comes amid rising tension nationwide over fatal police shootings involving blacks and the shooting of three police officers in Baton Rouge.

Taco Bell said that following an investigation an employee was fired and the restaurant chain issued an apology to the Alabama deputies. “We are deeply appreciative of the men and women who have taken the oath to serve and protect our communities,” the company said in a statement.

Al Sharpton sued for $1.75m over claims he swindled trucker who asked for help with discrimination case

Reggie Anders (far left) and Sharpton (r)

From Daily Mail: Civil rights leader Race Hustler Rev. Al Sharpton has been accused of swindling an Arizona trucker out of $16,000 after he agreed to take on his discrimination case, according to a lawsuit.

Reggie Anders Sr. is suing the outspoken preacher after he claims Sharpton took no action in his discrimination dispute with Verizon, the New York Post reports.

Anders claims that he agreed to pay Sharpton $16,000 – in cash – in exchange for him publicizing the dispute in the media and on his weekly radio broadcast, as well as setting up mediation meetings with the communications giant.

It was only later he read a report in the New York Post claiming that the preacher, and his National Action Network (NAN), received thousands of dollars in donations from Verizon and other large corporations in what the newspaper alleged what ‘protection money’.  Firms that didn’t pay up were threatened with bad press or boycotts, it reported last year.

Al Sharpton

‘He’s a crook, he’s a fraud, and that’s all he is,’Anders told the Post. ‘He didn’t do anything he promised. Absolutely nothing.’

Anders says that when he called Sharpton to confront him about his lack of action, and links with Verizon, that the civil rights leaders was furious. ‘He said people write stuff about him all the time,’ Anders said. Representatives for Sharpton deny the claims which they have branded ‘untrue and frivolous’.

Anders was advised to get in touch with Sharpton last year by his own minister, the Rev. David Wade of Phoenix, when his 2009 case against Verizon – who he claims were in breach of contract and discriminated against him – after his suit was thrown out in 2014. He and his pastor then flew out for a meeting at NAN headquarters in Harlem in March 2015.

Sharpton agreed to help on one condition. He wanted $16,000, in cash. Anders say he never explained why. ‘I thought he was an honest guy,’ he said. ‘I thought he would do what he said he would do.’

Anders’s suit seeks $1.75 million in damages from Sharpton and Verizon for ‘conspiring’ against him.

Michael Hardy, of NAN, told DailyMail.com that Rev. Sharpton had never accepted money from Anders and called his allegations ‘frivolous and untrue.’ He confirmed that Anders had reached out to NAN, through his pastor, and the organization had followed up by making inquiries to Verizon.

But he said that their research found his claims were ‘frivolous’, ‘not to mention that he had already lost his 2014 lawsuit.’ Asked specifically about the claims Sharpton had accepted $16,000 in cash from Anders, he said: ‘There was no money ever given to Rev Sharpton. ‘We would deny that, we don’t believe that he gave him any money. I think a lot of times people think they can get an advantage by making allegations against Rev Sharpton.’ He added that they had not yet seen Anders’ lawsuit but they would be responding accordingly.

When asked about Anders by the Post, Sharpton responded: ‘Who? I have no idea what you’re talking about.’

It is not the first time Sharpton has been accused of being overly concerned with money. In February last year, NYPD chokehold victim Eric Garner’s daughter called out the civil rights leader for being obsessed with financial gain, according to new undercover video. Erica Snipes, the daughter of Eric Garner who died in Staten Island in 2014 after a New York City Police officer put him in a chokehold, aired her complaints during a secretly recorded conversation with two conservative activists.

The undercover video was released by undercover filmmaker James O’Keefe’s group,Project Veritas. ‘You think Al Sharpton is kind of like a crook in a sense?’ one of the undercover investigators posing as an Eric Garner supporter asked Erica Snipes. ‘He’s about this,’ Snipes replied rubbing her thumb and index finger together in a universal sign symbolizing money.

‘He’s about money with you?’ the Project Veritas staffer asked, to which Snipes, 25, replied in the affirmative.

On his part, Rev Sharpton, 61, accused O’Keefe’s conservative group of ‘exploiting’ Eric Garner’s daughter, whom he described as a ‘sincere victim.’

‘They’re splicing and dicing stuff together,’ he said. ‘It was a distortion.’ Sharpton insisted that his organization, which is dedicated to helping small businesses and low-income families, does not take money from them.

The revered is an outspoken supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. He recently criticized those calling to  scale back or stop rallies organized by BLM.

Sharpton added that numerous protests create a climate for change and provide participants a sense of sanity amid rising gun-related violence. He also deplored the killing of police officers in Dallas last week. ‘Don’t paint us as anti-cop. We are not anti-police. We’re anti-wrong,’ he said.

This is Chiraq: 5 dead, 42 wounded in weekend shootings

BLM too busy agitating to care about what happens EVERY weekend in Chiraq.

I updated the numbers in the title on Sunday night. Of course they went up from when I scheduled this post.

From MyFoxChicago: Three people were killed and at least 37 others have been wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.

The most recent homicide happened early Sunday in the Kenwood neighborhood on the South Side. Two teenagers were walking in an alley about 12:50 a.m. in the 4700 block of South Ellis when a red minivan pulled up and someone inside opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

One boy, thought to be 15 or 16 years old, was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The other boy, 16, suffered a gunshot wound to the left leg and was taken to the hospital, but additional information was not immediately available. The teenager’s body could be seen lying a few yards from at least eight shell casings on the alley sidewalk next to a three-story apartment building.

About 11 p.m. Saturday, a man was fatally shot in the Grand Boulevard neighborhood on the South Side. Officers responding to a call of a person on the ground found a 23-year-old man lying in a vacant lot, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. A weapon was recovered at the scene, but no one was in custody early Sunday as Area Central detectives investigate.

Earlier Saturday night, a 19-year-old man was shot to death in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side. He was driving in the 4900 block of West Augusta about 8:45 p.m. when shots rang out and he suffered three gunshot wounds to the shoulder and side, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm any of the fatalities early Sunday.

The latest nonfatal shooting happened at 4:44 a.m. Sunday in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side. Officers found a man, thought to be between 40 and 50 years old, with a gunshot wound to the head in the 4500 block of West Maypole, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.

About 3:15 a.m., four more people were wounded in three separate shootings on the North, South and Southwest sides.

In the Wicker Park neighborhood, a 32-year-old got into a argument with a group of males in the 2100 block of North Avenue, police said. One of the males in the group pulled out a gun and shot the man in the left shoulder and back. He was taken to Stroger Hospital where his condition was stabilized.

In Gresham, a man was shot and critically wounded in the Washington Park neighborhood. The 22-year-old was parking a vehicle in the first block of East Garfield when a black SUV pulled up and someone inside fired shots, police said. He suffered gunshot wounds to the neck and right arm and was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital.

In Brighton Park, a 16-year-old boy and 34-year-old man were shot in the 2400 block of West 45th Street, police said. The man suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital. The teenager was shot in the left buttocks and right arm and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition was stabilized. Police said the shooting appears to be gang-related.

At least 31 other people have been wounded in shootings across Chicago since about 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Police officers pay for motel room, help raise $150G for homeless teen who biked six hours to college

Fred Barley/Facebook photo

From Fox News: More than $150,000 dollars have been raised for a Georgia 19-year-old who was found sleeping in a tent outside the gates of his college last weekend. 

Fred Barley, who is homeless, was discovered by two police officers responding to a trespassing call near a parking lot at Gordon State College in Barnesville. He told the officers he had ridden his little brother’s bicycle six hours to register for classes for his second semester of college. 

In addition to the bike, Barley had two duffel bags containing all his wordly possessions and two gallons of water. All he had to eat, according to a report by WSB, was a box of cereal.

“After meeting Fred, I could tell he was a good kid,” Gordon State College Police Officer Dicky Carreker told the Barnesville Herald-Gazette. “He was a young kid who had been dealt a bad hand and was trying to make the best out of it. All he wanted was a job.

Carreker and Barnesville Police Officer Maria Gebelein told Barley he couldn’t stay in the tent, but they knew someplace he could stay. The officers brought Barley to a nearby motel and paid for two nights accomodation.

“The stuff that’s happening with police officers, I am black and he didn’t care what color I was,” Barley told WSB. “He just helped me, and that meant a lot.”

The story, however, doesn’t end there. After Carreker posted the story on Facebook, members of the community rallied behind Barley. A GoFundMe page on Barley’s behalf had raised $150,000 dollars as of Saturday afternoon. 

The owner of a local pizzeria hired him as a dishwasher and promised to work around his class scheduled (Barley wants to major in biology). Other residents have donated clothes, food and a new bike.

“I was not expecting any of this support and am in awe of how this community has come together to help me,” Barley told the Herald-Gazette. “I was just trying to go to school, find a job and make it on my own. Now it seems as though I am part of a new community and have a new family.”
