Son of Israel’s PM Netanyahu says leftists are more dangerous than neo-Nazis

On Tuesday, August 15, in a rowdy exchange with journalists at Trump Tower in New York, President Trump refused to lay the blame solely on the “Unite the Right” rally for last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, VA. He said:

“I think there is blame on both sides. You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now. What about the alt-left that came charging… at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?… There are two sides to a story. What about the fact they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do. As far as I am concerned, that was a horrible, horrible day.”

Indeed. Did you know that the Left in Charlottesville attacked the Right with urine and concrete bombs, as well a lethal flame thrower?

For saying that both sides are to be blamed, President Trump continues to be pilloried by the MSM and across the political spectrum.

Now, the son of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is weighing in.

Yair Netanyahu posted this on his Facebook page:

“To put things in perspective. I’m a Jew, I’m an Israeli, the neo nazis scums in Virginia hate me and my country. But they belong to the past. Their breed is dying out. However the thugs of Antifa and BLM who hate my country (and America too in my view) just as much are getting stronger and stronger and becoming super dominant in American universities and public life.

Yair’s remarks received 1.4K “likes”.

26-year-old Yair is Benjamin Netanyahu’s son with his third and current wife, former El Al flight attendant Sara Ben-Artzi

According to The Times of Israel, Yair’s views depart from his father’s.

On August 15, after he was criticized for staying silent on Charlottesville, PM Netanyahu tweeted that that he was “outraged by expressions of anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism and racism. Everyone should oppose this hatred.” Asked about his son Yair’s comments, sources close to the prime minister said, “Yair is an adult and his views are his alone.”

Israeli politicians are split on President Trump’s stance.

Likud MK Oren Hazan said that President Trump “is right. Violence and extremism on any side is forbidden and demands condemnation. That doesn’t matter to the bleeding hearts on the left and in the media. After all, they believe that only the right is extremist and violent.”

Other Israeli politicians are much more critical of Trump’s position:

  • Education Minister Naftali Bennett has called on US leaders to denounce the rally’s “displays of anti-Semitism.”
  • Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked who, like Bennett, is of the Jewish Home party, has urged prosecution of neo-Nazi activists.
  • Yesh Atid chair MK Yair Lapid said: “There aren’t two sides. When Neo-Nazis march in Charlottesville and scream slogans against Jews and in support of white supremacy, the condemnation has to be unambiguous. They represent hate and evil. Anyone who believes in the human spirit must stand against them without fear.”
  • Zionist Union number two MK Tzipi Livni explicitly criticized Trump’s equivalence: “When it comes to racism, anti-Semitism and Nazism, there are never two equal sides. There’s good and there’s evil. Period.”

I have a question for Mr. Bennett, Shaked, Lapid and Livni:

How come those evil, racist, anti-Semitic Nazis at the Charlottesville rally, who were carrying flaming torches, making “Heil Hitler” hand salutes, and shouting “White lives matter!” look like caricatures of Jews?

California is No. 1 for hate groups, report says

california

Even though this report was issued by one of the liberals’ favorite organizations, the Southern Poverty Law Center, don’t expect the MSM to run with this story. Doesn’t fit their current narrative.

From Fox News: The states with the highest number of hate groups may not be the areas of the country that many people would assume.

California ranks highest among the 50 states, with nearly 80 different hate groups calling the Golden State home, says a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center. Most of the groups are concentrated in Southern California, the San Francisco Bay area and the Sacramento region, the report says.

Data show the western half of the U.S. has significantly fewer hate groups than the East Coast, the report says, but California — the nation’s most populous state — easily has the highest number of hate groups operating within its borders.

The “Hate Map” report shows 917 hate groups operating across the country. It includes data not only on white supremacists, but Black Separatist organizations and anti-LGBT groups as well.

The report also cites numbers from 2016 that show 130 Ku Klux Klan groups and 193 Black Separatist groups active across the county. The SPLC also notes there has been a nearly 200  percent increase in anti-Muslim groups since 2015.

In 2011, the total number hit its peak with over 1,000 groups operating. That number dropped to 784 just three years later, but there has been a steady increase since then. The SPLC also says in its report that the country has seen an unprecedented rise in hate groups since the turn of the century. In 1999 when there were only 457 documented groups in the country.

Florida ranks No. 2 with 63 hate groups, and is No. 1 on the East Coast.

Ranking third is New York state, home to 47 hate groups. Pennsylvania is not far behind, with 40 groups.

States with the lowest numbers of hate groups lie mostly in the Midwest and West. Iowa has only four groups in operation, while Wyoming and New Mexico have two apiece and North Dakota and Vermont have one each.

Data for the “Hate Map” list was compiled using hate group publications and websites, citizen and law-enforcement reports, sources from the field and news reports, the SPLC says.

De Blasio negotiates for tax payer monies then goes on vacation

de blasio

Take the money and run.

From NY Post: Just days after convincing the Campaign Finance Board to award him an extra $1.6 million in public matching funds for what he called a tough re-election race, Mayor de Blasio headed to Rhode Island Monday for a family vacation.

“It’s unfortunate that the mayor made a strong case for additional matching funds by saying he had a competitive race and then took off on vacation,” said Dick Dadey, director of the government watchdog Citizens Union.

“The argument that he needed it for a competitive election doesn’t hold together very well.”

The Democratic primary will be held on Sept. 12, a little more than three weeks after de Blasio’s return on Friday. It’s rare for candidates to take vacations so close to an election — unless, of course, they think they can’t lose.

Although de Blasio qualified on Aug. 3 for matching funds under the generous regulations of the Campaign Finance Board, he was under no obligation to take the money.

Other heavy favorites in the past have declined, including former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn in 2009.

CFB rules stipulate that matching funds will be capped at 25 percent if a candidate faces minimal opposition, but de Blasio argued that his chief Democratic rival, former Councilman Sal Albanese, posed a serious threat. The board agreed.

As a result, the mayor received about $1.6 million more in taxpayers matching funds than the $958,000 he would have gotten. In financial terms, the Democratic primary is about as level as a seesaw.

Records show that the mayor had $4.9 million in his campaign account as of last week after receiving the matching funds. Albanese, who has yet to qualify for matching monies, had just $5,397.

“He has more than enough money to get his message out,” Albanese said, charging that de Blasio is taking taxpayers for a ride. “His [public funds] could have gone towards improving city services.”

When asked to respond to the critics, de Blasio campaign spokesman Dan Levitan said, “They can’t challenge his record on the issues, so the silly season has begun.”

CFB spokesman Matthew Sollars said, “Public-funds payment determinations by the board are based on . . . objective criteria and nothing else.”

Pennsylvania GOP committeeman executed point-blank by anti-Trump neighbor

Don’t buy into the new rhetoric of an Alternative Left.

While there is an Alt-Right, there is no Alt-Left.

The Left are and have always been vicious, malevolent and murderous.

Just ask the 85-100 million victims of the former Soviet Union and communist Eastern Europe; the People’s Republic of China, especially Maoist China; Cambodia; Vietnam; Cuba; and North Korea, which made the 20th century the bloodiest century in human history.

Nor are leftists in the United States any different.

Larry Grathwohl is a former FBI agent who infiltrated the Weather Underground (WU), a radical left group that originated in 1969 as a faction of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn were founders of the WU; both are Chicago pals of Obama.

Grathwohl said that members of the Weather Underground told him they had made plans to kill 25 million Americans who they expected would resist reeducation when the WU seized political power.

In a permanent rage because Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump, despite the rigged polls and having the entire establishment (MSM, Hollywood, Wall Street) behind her, America’s Left finally took off their masks.

Every day, by their words and deeds, the Left show their true monstrous nature:

  • Issuing unending death threats against a duly-elected sitting President.
  • Violently protesting and rioting.
  • Plotting and scheming, by means legal (impeachment) and illegal, to take down President Trump.

The hate and venom inevitably take their toll, especially on already unbalanced minds.

In the early morning hours of August 8, 2017 in West Goshen, Pennsylvania, an anti-Trumper named Clayton Carter drove his car onto the lawn of his next-door neighbor G. Brooks Jennings. Carter shot Jennings once in the head, knocking him to the ground, then stood over Jennings’ body and shot him once more in the head — all witnessed by Mrs. Jennings from the window of their home.

In other words, Carter paused after the first shot, then shot Jennings a second time, execution style.

Police had arrested and charged Carter, 51, with multiple crimes including first-degree murder which makes him ineligible for bail in the state of Pennsylvania. Carter is currently being held at the Chester County Prison.

According to a report by ABC6,

“Shortly before 8 p.m. Monday, police responded to the 300 block of Box Elder Drive for a dispute between Carter and Jennings about cursing and video recording in the back yard. Police said they were able to resolve that dispute. Then at approximately 1 a.m. Tuesday, police say the neighbors got into another dispute. Carter told police that Jennings shined a light into his eyes while he was outside. Carter then allegedly pulled a car onto his lawn, shining the high beams of the car on Jennings’ property. Carter then allegedly retrieved a .380 semi-automatic handgun from his house and confronted the victim again outside. Officials say Carter shot Jennings once in the head, knocking him to the ground. Carter then allegedly stood over Jennings’ body and shot him once more in the head. The victim was on his own property, police said. […] Carter did not call police for help or render aid to Jennings. […]

Neighbor Brian Dougherty got emotional when speaking of Jennings. ‘You don’t want to sound cliche, you see this on TV all the time, but he is probably the nicest, best guy I’ve ever met in my whole life. Really, seriously,’ Dougherty said.

Police say Carter had disputes with a number of other neighbors, and even pulled a gun on Jennings during a past altercation. Neighbors say Carter was a quarrelsome, argumentative man. Court records claim Carter had a history of disputes with multiple neighbors. His front yard was crowded with cars and hand lettered anti-Trump signs.

[…] Neighbors say [Carter’s disputes] were fueled apparently by some unknown anger inside Carter’s head. ‘We steered clear of him. We were frightened of him because he’s so unpredictable,’ said Kathy Pratt.”

ABC6 claims that “the disputes along the block were not political, but personal.”

But what ABC6 and other news sites did not or refuse to report is that anti-Trumper Carter’s neighbor and victim, G. Brooks Jennings, was a Republican committeeman for Chester County — a fact pointed out by Jim Melwert of Philadelphia’s KYW News Radio.

Seattle collected much less than predicted from gun tax

government solve all problems

Shocker, not. Another liberal tax-payer scheme that didn’t work out as planned.

From MyNorthwest.com: Seattle’s gun tax brought in much less than expected in its first year. City leaders expected the tax to bring in between $300,000 and $500,000 a year when they approved it. But it brought in just over $100,000 in 2016.

The city had long refused to reveal the dollar amount, citing privacy concerns of people who pay the tax.

“Given the limited number of quarterly returns filed, the City believes releasing any information at this time about the number of filers or amount reported would risk revealing identifying taxpayer information, which is protected from disclosure per Seattle Municipal Code and state law,” the city said in response to a records request.

Earlier this year, the city revealed the tax had brought in less than expected, but would only say it was less than $200,000. The numbers released this week come after a judge ordered the city to release the data following a public records battle with TheGunMag.

A lawsuit challenging the tax failed last week when the state Supreme Court ruled it was legal. In an 8-1 decision, the justices agreed with the city’s argument that the tax is different from a regulation.

“Historically, there has been a difference between regulations as such and taxation,” Attorney Phil Talmadge told KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson. “The Supreme Court has had a protocol for deciding what is a regulatory process, or a fee, and what constitutes a tax. They applied that analysis pretty faithfully in this opinion. Like it or dislike it, that’s the way they’ve done it.”

Seattle passed its gun tax in August 2015. It was aimed at funding gun-violence prevention, research and other programs to mitigate the public costs of gun-related crimes. The effort was spearheaded by Councilmember Tim Burgess. It places a $25 tax on guns sold in Seattle, and up to 5 cents on each round of ammunition.

Out of the shadows, Hillary Clinton openly subverts President Trump with $800k donation to ‘resistance’ movement

No longer hiding in the shadows with her machinations, sole loser Hillary Clinton now openly opposes and subverts a duly-elected President of the United States of America by donating $800,000 of her failed presidential campaign’s funds to the “resistance” against Trump.

Joe Schoffstall reports for The Washington Free Beacon, August 14, 2017, that Hillary has donated $800,000 from her campaign funds to Onward Together — a new political action group that she formed three months ago in May which will fund a number of established “resistance” groups that counter President Trump with direct action and protests.

According to its mission statement, Onward Together is dedicated to “encouraging people to organize, get involved, and run for office” and advancing “progressive values and work to build a brighter future for generations to come.”

Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings show that on May 1, 2017, Hillary’s presidential campaign committee Hillary for America contributed $800,000 to Onward Together. In addition, Hillary also funded other “resistance” groups that have “impressed” her, including Swing Left, Run for Something, Emerge America, and Indivisible.

In an email to supporters in May, Hillary sanctimoniously wrote:

“From the Women’s March to airports across the country where communities are welcoming immigrants and refugees to town hall meetings in every community, Americans are speaking out like never before. I believe more fiercely than ever that citizen engagement at every level is central to a strong and vibrant democracy. In some cases, we’ll provide direct funding to these organizations. For others, we’ll help amplify their work and do what we can to help them continue to grow their audiences and expand their reach.”

Indivisible teamed up with Town Hall Project for raucous town hall events. Founded by Jimmy Dahman, a former Clinton campaign field organizer in Iowa, Town Hall Project is located at the same address as an organization funded by George Soros. Town Hall Project also partners with the Center for American Progress Action Fund, the advocacy arm of an organization founded by Hillary’s former campaign chair and “spirit cooker” John Podesta.

Onward Together is registered as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, which means that donors can contribute unlimited sums of money while remaining anonymous. Throughout the 2016 election season, Hillary had railed against exactly that — unlimited and anonymous campaign donations.

Hypocrite!

America’s 25 most hated celebrities

Last month, National Enquirer conducted a poll asking its readers to vote for their 25 most hated celebrities from a list of 60 names.

Here are the results (the deliciously catty comment on each celebrity is the Enquirer‘s):

(25) Ellen DeGeneres: “Please feed your rail-thin wife Portia de Rossi!”

(24) Gwyneth Paltrow: “From ‘conscious uncoupling’ to Goop-y lifestyle tips, she’s a precious pain.”

(23) Sean Penn: “The big-screen bad boy should stop sticking his big nose into politics.”

(22) Angelina Jolie: “She’s been blacklisted by Hollywood after trying to tar and feather ex Brad Pitt.”

(21) Roman Polanski: “His carnal cravings for a 13-year-old girl turned him into an international fugitive.”

(20) Matt Lauer: “If it weren’t for ‘Today,’ the prissy girly-man would be nowhere.”

(19) Miley Cyrus: “The admitted ‘pansexual’ and pothead now swears she’s clean. Right.”

(18) Shia LaBeouf: “The whacked-out actor wore a paper bag over his head on the red carpet. Why stop there!”

(17) Barbra Streisand: “Hollywood’s biggest liberal can’t stop singing the praises of the crooked Clintons.”

(16) Charlie Sheen: “Drugs, booze, abuse and a HIV-positive diagnosis — Charlie’s done it all.”

(15) Megyn Kelly: “The ex-Fox News journalist’s sky-high ratings have tanked since she joined NBC.”

(14) Chris Brown: “The hip-hopper managed to duck jail time after battering then-girl friend Rihanna.”

(13) Stephen Colbert: “In all ‘truthiness,’ this late-night windbag should keep his opinions to himself.”

(12) Woody Allen: “He married his own stepdaughter, and has long been dogged by child-abuse charges.”

(11) Kris Jenner: “O.J.’s former bosom buddy shamelessly peddles her kids like a low-class pimp.”

(10) Alec Baldwin: “He’s plummeted from lean leading man to a bloated, self-important political annoyance.”

(9) Madonna: “The im-Material Girl is too old to bed twentysomethings and dress like a hooker.”

(8) Kanye West: “Oh yeezy! The rapper wrote a song titled, ‘I Am a God,’ forcing us to rethink religion.”

(7) Kim Kardashian: “The reality star gained fame from a sex tape and now her big butt is unavoidable.”

(6) Whoopi Goldberg: “The daytime TV gasbag has defended Cosby and alienated audiences.”

(5) Barack Obama: “His life is one long golf vacation — just like when he was in the White House! The 44th president of the United States dropped the ball on probing Russian meddling in the election, wiretapped candidate Trump and dismissed ISIS terrorists as a ‘junior varsity squad’.”

(4) Bill Cosby: “He was ‘America’s favorite dad’ — now he’s the nation’s most famous accused serial rapist. Cosby has declared his innocence, but dozens of gutsy gals have charged he drugged and sexually assaulted them. After a mistrial, he’s expected to face charges again.”

(3) O.J. Simpson: “Lock up your kids and bolt the door — The Juice will soon be on the loose! He’s set to be freed from prison, but cocky O.J. will always be a ‘killer’ to many after the 1994 murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and waiter Ron Goldman. The monster even wrote a ‘hypothetical’ account of the murders in the book ‘If I Did It’.”

And the #2 and #1 most hated  American celebrities are . . .

[Drumroll]

(2) Hillary Clinton: “Voters couldn’t ‘lock her up!’ But they kept the scandal-scarred politico out of the Oval Office. The bungled Benghazi raid, deleted emails, leaked state secrets from her private server and ghastly cash Clinton Foundation grabs wrecked her White House hopes.”

(1) Rosie O’Donell: “TV’s loudmouth lesbian ‘Queen of Mean’ tops our list with 950 votes! The tone-deaf Donald Trump basher is a serial cheater who’s ditched two wives and antagonized her co-stars on ‘The View.’ Rosie’s also struggled with drugs and been accused of illegally adopting one of her kids!”

HA HA HA HA HA HA!
