Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams tells new New Yorkers ‘go back to Iowa’

 

That “liberal tolerance” on display.

Eric Adams

From NY Post: He has a dream — of leading a New York City that is home to far fewer Midwesterners.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams — the leading fundraiser in the 2021 mayoral race — used Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday to deliver an inflammatory broadside against newcomers from the nation’s heartland.

“Go back to Iowa, you go back to Ohio,” he said during a speech in Harlem. New York City belongs to the people that was here and made New York City what it is.”

Speaking at the National Action Network’s “King Day Celebration,” hosted by founder the Rev. Al Sharpton, Adams implicitly played the race card as he denounced gentrification by singling out two states, Iowa and Ohio, that are 91 and 82 percent white, respectively.

Adams also rattled off a litany of social crises — including drug abuse and gun violence — that he said were ignored when they only affected the nation’s “black and brown community.”

He then declared himself “unapologetic” as he invoked the slain civil-rights icon, saying that “if you know the spirit and anything about Dr. King, he did not allow others to be comfortable while everyone else was living in horrific conditions.”

Adams — who raked in $437,099 in political contributions during the past six months, with major donations from the real-estate industry — railed against what he called the “displacement of the people who made this city.”

“You were here before Starbucks,” he told a crowd of about 300 who greeted his remarks with cheers and applause. “You were here before others came and decided they wanted to be part of this city.”

Adams referred to the transplants as “folks who [are] not only hijacking your apartments and displacing your living arrangements, they displace your conversation and say the things that are important to you are no longer important. And they decide what’s important and what is not important.”

In Bushwick, caterer Jenna Hockman, 28, a lifelong Brooklynite, said Adams was “blaming individuals instead of the system that enables developers to build these high rises that are pricing people out.”

“I am concerned about placing responsibility on the individuals that are moving to these neighborhoods and not the people who are making money from these individuals moving there,” she said.

The Republican leader of Ohio’s Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, said Adams “took Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of unity and made it a divisive message.”

President Trump was correct: Emergency supplies in Puerto Rico went unused

 

After Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017, progressives and the media blamed President Trump for the lack of relief supplies.

When President Trump called out Puerto Rico’s ‘incompetent or corrupt’ politicians, the media lost their minds. He claimed Puerto Rico had mismanaged disaster aid funds. No one in the media dared travel to Puerto Rico to do an investigation. Such brave fire fighters…

President Trump was correct. A headline yesterday from USA Today: “Warehouse of emergency supplies went unused in Puerto Rico after Maria. Now 2 officials are fired.”

The USA Today story goes on to describe how three officials have been fired as a result of their incompetence. Read the whole story here.

More proof that you can NEVER trust our media and their #fakenews.

Pentagon bans Bible verses on dog tags, while Pres. Trump upholds right to pray in public schools

 

No Bible Verses on Soldiers’ Dog Tags

The Pentagon caved in to (((Mikey Weinstein))) of the atheistic Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) again.

Caleb Parke reports for Fox News, Dec. 3, 2019, that for the past 20 years, U.S. military members have been able to wear dog tags with Bible verses on them, giving them light and hope in some of their darkest times. For some Gold Star families, this is one of their most cherished possessions to remember their loved one who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Founded by Kenny Vaughan in 1998, Shields of Strength is a Texas-based company that makes Christian jewelry, beginning with a dog-tag with a Bible scripture which Vaughan had made for himself. The company now makes dog-tags with Bible verses for military members and their family, as well as other Christian-theme jewelry and apparel.

After Fox News reported on Shields of Strength last July, Weinstein complained to the Department of Defense (DOD), demanding the DOD ban the Bible verses dog-tags. “Soon after,” each military branch pulled or threatened to pull the trademark licenses that had been issued to Kenny Vaughan from Shields of Strength.

Berry, a Marine Corps combat veteran who served in Afghanistan, told Fox News: “Just when I didn’t think Mikey Weinstein could stoop any lower, he pulled a stunt like that. He’d rather take it away from them just to raise his own publicity than support our service members … that’s pretty cowardly and that’s cruel.”

Vaughan said he’s seen soldiers, who have to leave their Bible behind, carry their Shields of Strength dog-tags with them; oftentimes, the soldiers would stand in line for hours just to get one: “The love of Jesus changed my life forever. It’s the most valuable thing I have to offer anyone is God’s Word. No one needs it more than a young man or woman fighting for our freedom and we’re going to fight for them.”

An acquaintance of mine who’s a Constitutional Law attorney, says:

“While I would absolutely oppose the military issuing such tags (even with a request from the servicemember) it is outrageous that servicemembers can’t voluntarily inscribe their own tags. From a legal point of view, if the military allows any inscriptions at all (like “I Love Mom”) then banning religious ones is content discrimination. That triggers strict (constitutional) scrutiny.”

Prayer in School

Meanwhile, on January 16, 2020, President Trump followed through on his promise to the Evangelicals for Trump rally in Miami on January 3 to “safeguard students’ and teachers’ First Amendment rights to pray in our schools” through a directive from the Department of Education.

As reported by the AP and Christianity Today, the Department of Education issued a guidance on school prayer, the first updated guidance since 2003. The directive orders states to verify that school districts have no policies limiting constitutionally protected prayer, refer violators to the Education Department, and provide ways for making complaints against schools.

From the Department of Education’s press release of January 16, 2020:

[F]or the first time since 2003, the Department will …issue today updated guidance on constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary and secondary schools. The Department is required by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act, to update this guidance every two years. The guidance explains the ESEA’s requirement that states report which local educational agencies have not certified that they do not have any policy that prevents, or otherwise denies participation in, constitutionally protected prayer. The ESEA also requires states to report complaints against a local educational agency that allegedly denies a person, including a student or employee, the right to engage in constitutionally protected prayer. The guidance clarifies that the ESEA requires states to provide a clear process for students, parents, and teachers to report violations of their right to pray. Under the ESEA, states must fulfill these reporting requirements by November 1 of each year.

Christianity Today reminds us that public schools have been barred from leading students in classroom prayer since 1962, when the Supreme Court said it violated a First Amendment clause forbidding the establishment of a government religion. Later decisions extended the ban to school graduation ceremonies and, under certain circumstances, school athletic games.

Civil liberties groups say the firewall protects religious minorities and ensures fair treatment of all faiths. But many Christians say courts and schools have pushed too far against the right to free religious expression. Surveys find that Americans remain largely in favor of prayer in public schools:

  • According to General Social Survey data analyzed by political scientist Ryan Burge, just 20–35% of Christians support a ban against requiring reading the Lord’s Prayer or the Bible in public schools, and the religiously unaffiliated are evenly divided on the question.
  • A 2019 Pew Research Center survey found 41% of teens in public schools, including 68% of evangelicals, said they view teacher-led prayer in class as appropriate. A majority of teens in general (82%) and evangelical teens (64%) say there are no religious support or prayer groups that meet in their school.

South Dakota’s Republican Governor Kristi Noem, 48, is also fighting back against the Left’s tyranny.

In March 2019, Noem signed a law requiring every public school throughout the state to display an “In God We Trust” sign on their premises beginning in the fall semester. The law went into effect last July. (H/t Tom Wigand)

Bloomberg derides hero Jack Wilson: “It’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot”

 

According to The Hill, Nanny Bloomberg said this on January 1 when speaking about the Texas West Freeway Church of Christ hero Jack Wilson who stopped a shooter with his own gun:

“It may be true that someone in the congregation had his own gun and killed the person who murdered two other people, but it’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot,” the former mayor said earlier this month, adding, “You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.”

Check it out:

Tell you what, Mr. Nanny Bloomberg: I’d rather have an “average” citizen carrying a gun than a CRIMINAL. At least I’d know that we aren’t all sitting ducks.

And I’m guessing that Bloomberg doesn’t know ANY of the basic firearm safety rules, including “know your target and what’s behind it.”

That’s because this assh*le wouldn’t know the first thing about what us “average” citizens face because he is surrounded by private security. Freakin HYPOCRITE.

So if an assailant decides to break into my home, I have to call 911 and WAIT for them to arrive and WAIT for them to decide to shoot a perp who most likely might have done me harm/killed me by then?

That’s liberal logic for ‘ya. Bloomberg is truly a mental disorder.

About to face the cancel culture? Producer defends using male voices for female animated characters

 

If you are not “woke” enough in Hollyweird, you will face the wrath of progressives.

Loren Bouchard (above) is an American animator, writer, producer, and television director who has created several animated TV shows.

THR reports that in Apple’s forthcoming Central Park animated comedies, Bouchard told the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour that he knows it isn’t great practice to have men voicing female characters but sometimes it can’t be helped.

Male actors Daveed Diggs and Stanley Tucci both voice female characters, while Kristen Bell lends her voice to the central family’s mixed-race daughter. And on Fox’s mega-hit Bob’s Burgers (created by Bouchard), John Roberts lends his voice to the character of Linda.

Bouchard’s justification for this crime: “Animation just makes you want to take this voice and have it come out if this face. Hopefully there’s something about it that makes sense.”

More from THR:

“Still, Bouchard — who along with exec producer Josh Gad and star Bell raved about the influence musical theater had on them during their formative years — is aware that the practice of handing roles for women to men isn’t particularly great at a time when the industry is making an effort to do better with inclusion on-screen and off.

“Here I am, yet again, taking away two roles for women, and it’s something that I have on my mind all the time to try and keep balancing things,” he said, acknowledging Bell voicing a mixed-race character. “Kristen needed to voice Molly, we couldn’t not make her Molly and then we couldn’t make Molly white and couldn’t make Kristen mixed-race. Then you arrive there and keep doing it as best you can to turn around and give someone an opportunity who wasn’t getting it. A commitment to diversity isn’t some odd job, it’s a commitment to making it better.

Progressives have earned a perfect “10” in the mental gymnastics they go through to justify their double standards.

NBC News reporter tries to set narrative for Lobby Day/gun rights rally in VA today

 

Yesterday Ben Collins, a reporter for NBC News, tried to frame the narrative for the Lobby Day protest in Virginia today. He tweeted – then deleted – the following:

He tweeted this because three men suspected of being members of a neo-Nazi hate group, including a former reservist in the Canadian Army, had weapons and discussed traveling Virginia’s rally.

After being schooled, he deleted the tweet and issued this correction:

“Hi everybody! I’m deleting a tweet so I can be super clear about tomorrow’s rally in Virginia.

The Lobby Day protest is and has traditionally been a gun rights rally, but white nationalists, including militant group The Base, have been planning violent action at the event.”

According to Breitbart, Moms Demand and Gov. Coonman have been trying to set the same narrative.

How ironic that a reporter warns others to verify information while he’s spreading #fakenews about an event that has yet to occur. Gotta get their narrative out there so it can be repeated and shared so the truth won’t matter.

Quite typical of the liberal hacks in media today.

Women’s March focuses on “lifting each other up”

 

The fourth year of the perpetual temper tantrum…

From SF Gate: Cheering, clapping and waving signs ranging from the profound to the profane, protesters from all over the Bay Area rallied in San Francisco and around the United States for the fourth annual Women’s March on Saturday.

“Today is about lifting each other up,” said San Francisco Mayor London Breed, the city’s first female African American mayor, who swept onstage to roars of approval from the audience.

Hundreds showed up in New York City and thousands in Washington, D.C., for the rallies, which aim to harness the political power of women, although crowds were noticeably smaller than in previous years. Marches were scheduled Saturday in more than 180 cities.

The first marches in 2017 drew hundreds of thousands of people to rallies in cities across the country on the day after President Donald Trump was inaugurated. That year’s D.C. march drew close to 1 million people.

The marches began nationwide in January 2017, sparked by the election of President Donald Trump. About 100,000 people attended in San Francisco that year. Subsequent years have seen smaller crowds locally and nationally. No crowd estimate was available at press time for this year’s event.

“Our reproductive health is under attack” by the current administration, as well as transgender rights and other civil liberties, Breed said. The marches focus on a broad spectrum of issues including immigration, pay equity and racial equality.

President Trump nixes Obama deal for China to control Port of Long Beach

 

The Port of Long Beach, California is the second-busiest port in the United States and one of the world’s busiest seaports, a leading gateway for trade between the United States and Asia. It supports more than 2.6 million jobs nationally and generates billions of dollars in economic activity each year.

Founded in 1911, each year, the Port handles:

  • More than 7.5 million 20-foot container units (TEUs)
  • Cargo valued at $194 billion
  • 82.3 million metric tons of cargo
  • 2,000 vessel calls

The Port’s loaded containers account for:

  • 1/3 moving through all California ports
  • 1/4 moving through all West Coast ports
  • nearly 1 in 5 moving through all U.S. ports

Given its importance, for a foreign country to control the Port of Long Beach would be worrisome, not to mention a foreign country has no business controlling any port in the United States. Even worse, however, if the foreign country is one not friendly to the United States and whose politcal-economic system is hostile to democracy.

But that’s precisely what the Obama administration did.

In 2012, the Obama administration signed an agreement — a 40-year container terminal lease — giving OOCL (Orient Overseas Container Line), a Hong Kong container transportation and logistics company, control of the Port of Long Beach, America’s second-largest container port behind the nearby Port of Los Angeles.

Note: Hong Kong is a part of China, ostensibly a “special administration region” with alleged autonomy from the Chinese government in Beijing.

According to Printus LeBlanc of the Daily Torch, OOCL has been a good steward of the port with no controversy associated with the company.

In July 2017, however, OOCL was purchased by COSCO (China Ocean Shipping Company), a Chinese government-owned conglomerate. Headquarted in Beijing, COSCO is the largest dry bulk carrier in China and one of the largest dry bulk shipping operators worldwide.

LeBlanc points out why COSCO’s control of the Port of Long Beach is a matter of great concern:

This is the same Chinese government responsible for dozens of hacks and spying operations, targeting the U.S. defense industry. The communist government has been assaulting the defense industry, stealing hundreds of billions of dollars in trade secrets. The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been able to make staggering technological advancements because of the theft. The F-35, V-22, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, and Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System are just a few of the systems compromised by Chinese espionage efforts. After the unprecedented level of spying, why would the U.S. invite the perpetrator onto U.S. soil?

The attempted Chinese purchase of the port operations fits a pattern for the Chinese government. The Communist regime has undertaken an ambitious global project known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The initiative is a series of Chinese controlled ports, railways, and highway projects connecting 65 percent of the global population and 40 percent of global GDP.

China is using the BRI to influence policies of the nations the belt passes throughas it did with Greece last Summer. Greece refused to back the European Union’s attempt to criticize China’s human rights record, marking the first time the union failed to make its statement at the U.N.

The addition of the Long Beach Port implies the Chinese government may want to extend the belt to the Western Hemisphere. Perhaps we shouldn’t make it so easy for them.

Happily, President Trump squashed the Obama administration’s deal.

Judicial Watch reports:

Under a long-term deal sealed by the Obama administration, a Chinese Communist company was set to control the second-busiest container port in the United States. In an unreported Trump administration victory, the Communists are out after a drawn-out national security review forced a unit of China-based COSCO Shipping Holdings Co. (Orient Overseas Container Line—OOCL) to sell the cherished container terminal business, which handles among the largest freight of imports into the U.S.

One of the Trump administration’s first big moves was to get the Communists out of the Port of Long Beach. After a national security review and federal intervention, the Long Beach terminal business, which handles millions of containers annually, is finally being sold to an Australian company called Macquarie Infrastructure Partners. That essentially kills China’s decades-long contract with the Obama administration.

The deal never should have been signed in the first place considering the facility’s size, significance and the national security issues associated with a hostile foreign government controlling it….

Removing Chinese Communists from this essential port is a tremendous feat and a huge victory for U.S. national security. You’d never know it because the media, consumed with the impeachment debacle, has ignored this important achievement. The only coverage of the finalized transfer is found in Long Beach’s local newspaper, which published a brief article omitting important background information on the Trump administration’s work to take back the terminal from the Communists….

In the last few years China has bought cargo ports throughout the world, including in Latin America, the Indian Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Chinese-owned ports are located in Greece, Italy, Spain and other European locations. In sub-Saharan Africa there are dozens of existing or planned port projects funded or operated by China, according to a study that highlights the threat the Chinese investments present to U.S. influence in the region. One troubling analysis points out that “COSCO’s commercial expansion has created leverage for Beijing — leverage that has already resulted in countries that host COSCO ports adopting China’s position on key international issues.

Thank you, President Trump!
