When they go low: SNL’s Pete Davidson mocks US war veteran who lost an eye in war

Pete Davidson is a comedian who works on SNL. He’s also a jerk who mocks disabled veterans.

He appeared on SNL Saturday night to make fun of republicans running in the mid-terms. In the video, Davidson mocks Dan Crenshaw who is running for Congress in Texas. About Crenshaw, from his web site:

“Lieutenant Commander Dan Crenshaw (Retired) is the Republican nominee to replace retiring Congressman Ted Poe as the Representative for Texas’ 2nd Congressional District. Dan knew that he wanted to serve his country with the most elite fighting force in history: the U.S. Navy SEALs. Dan graduated from Tufts University in 2006, where he earned his Naval officer commission through Navy ROTC. He immediately reported to SEAL training in Coronado, CA, where he met his future wife, Tara, just a few months later. After graduating SEAL training, Dan deployed to Fallujah, Iraq to join SEAL Team Three, his first of five deployments overseas.

On Dan’s third deployment in 2012, his life changed forever. After six months of combat operations, Dan was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He was evacuated and awoke from his medically induced coma learning that his right eye had been destroyed in the blast and his left eye was still present, but badly damaged. Dan was completely blind and the doctors did not believe he would ever see again. Tara stood by him every day and night, keeping faith and praying he would see again. After several difficult surgeries, he eventually regained sight in his left eye, a miracle according to the head surgeon. Dan refused to quit and went on to deploy twice more, first back to the Middle East in 2014 and then South Korea in 2016.

Dan was medically retired in September of 2016, after ten years in the SEAL Teams. He left service with two Bronze Stars (one with Valor), the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor, among many other recognitions.”

In the SNL skit Davidson says the following (beginning at the :58 second mark):

“This guy Dan Crenshaw. You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hit man in a porno movie. I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in war or whatever. Whatever.

Classy. Real classy.

Mr. Crenshaw took the high road and had a classier response to NBC:

“Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.”

ICE deports Kazakhstani man convicted of concealing evidence for Boston Marathon bombers

Bye, bye you terrorist supporter!

Our country and the safety of our citizens matter. Good riddance!

From ICE press release dated 11/01/18:

DALLAS — Officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed a Kazakhstani man on Oct. 23 who was previously convicted for concealing criminal evidence for one of the Boston Marathon bombers.

Dias Muratovich Kadyrbayev, 24, a citizen of Kazakhstan, was convicted June 2, 2015, of conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice for removing and disposing of incriminatory items from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s dorm room. Tsarnaev was later convicted and sentenced to death for his role in the Boston Marathon bombing that killed three innocent bystanders, and subsequently two police officers.

Kadyrbayev’s crimes are considered aggravated felonies under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Kadyrbayev was sentenced to six years in federal prison at the Federal Correctional Institute in Big Spring, Texas (FCI Big Spring). Under federal law, aliens convicted of an aggravated felony are subject to removal and barred from returning to the United States.

Kadyrbayev departed the U.S. by commercial air on Oct. 23 and was released from ICE custody on Oct. 24 at the Almaty International Airport, in Almaty, Kazakhstan, without incident.

On Oct. 13, 2016, ERO Dallas lodged an immigration detainer with the Bureau of Prisons on Kadyrbayev and on Feb. 15, 2018, served him with a final administrative order of removal.

On Aug. 29, 2018, FCI Big Spring transferred custody of Kadyrbayev to ERO Dallas at the Prairieland Detention Center in Alvarado, Texas. Kadyrbayev remained in ICE custody until he was removed under ICE escort on Oct. 23.

Steven Crowder back on Texas Christian University campus, counseling now available for triggered snowflakes

On October 2 Steven Crowder posted the above video. Crowder went to Texas Christian University (TCU) and set up his “Change My Mind” table. The goal was to have students discuss the myth of rape culture with him and convince him that “rape culture” does exist in this country.

The video is long yet offers a glimpse into the mindset of college students today. Some of my favorite statements from these young skulls of mush:

  • “I’m honestly not talking about empirical data at all, and I don’t think we should look at it. Empirical data is bullsh*t.
  • “I usually believe the woman until proven otherwise.” (Said by a male student who doesn’t believe that’s how our laws should work but we should believe her for the “most part.”)
  • Crowder later accuses said male student of an act and the male student says, “Where’s your evidence? Crowder: “Why does that matter?” Male student: “You have to have evidence.”
  • Later in this exchange Crowder tells male student:“You did say believe the women until otherwise.” The male student says you need to “disprove” the accusation.
  • Crowder explains due process. The male student then says, “I think I might have misspoken.”
  • Crowder has another discussion with a different male student who really doesn’t want to discuss rape culture. He would rather discuss the method of dialogue that Crowder chose.
  • This male student has a hard time “articulating” rape culture because it’s very complicated.
  • Crowder tries to get him to explain the nuances of rape culture and this male student eventually says,“I’m not going to be able to articulate it, I don’t have any facts, I don’t have figures, I don’t have anything.”
  • The male student later says, “My point was, I really didn’t want to talk about rape culture, because I’m not prepared, I don’t know what to say about it. I don’t know how to articulate that I think it’s an issue. I don’t even know how to tell you I came to think it’s an issue. It’s just something I learned along the way.

Keep in mind that these students voluntarily sat down with Crowder for a conversation. They made that choice.

Yet because of Crowder’s mere presence, the kids now might require counseling. TCU tweeted the following:

  • “Today, Steven Crowder chose to challenge our students on a public sidewalk in front of the university. While the Constitution gives him the right to express his views, the sentiments he expressed do not align with TCU’s values.”
  • His views adversely affected many members of our campus community. The health and safety of the Horned Frog Family is of utmost importance and we encourage individuals to contact campus resources for support. https://counseling.tcu.edu  https://titleix.tcu.edu/  https://campuslife.tcu.edu

Oh you precious snowflakes. It’s pathetic that TCU thinks students need counseling services over someone setting up a table asking for a discussion.

Think about this: These kids now might need counseling because they heard an opinion that’s different from theirs.

After watching this video, I think many can agree that the government indoctrination system has been a success.

Did baby butchers Planned Parenthood force Austin Hyatt Regency to cancel a screening of “Gosnell” movie?

The movie, “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” opens October 12. The producers had planned a free pre-screening of the movie at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Austin, Texas this Saturday.

The Hyatt canceled the Gosnell movie event, even after movie producers had paid a deposit and signed a contract with the hotel.

The reason? Planned Parenthood has a $400-per-plate fundraiser featuring former CEO Cecile Richards planned at the hotel that was scheduled the same time as the movie screening.

Life News reports that more than 250 people signed up for the free pre-screening event, and dozens more registering daily. Here’s more about what happened:

“The movie’s producers, however, were told Monday by the hotel the screen was canceled for “security reasons.”

The producers told WND they paid the deposit and signed the contract to reserve the space for the screening.

“Everything that was required by the Hyatt was provided and completed as required,” a spokesman said.”


Back in 2016, Planned Parenthood’s Greater Texas Chapter held a fundraiser at the Dallas Hyatt Regency. At that event, the baby butchers raised more than $850,000, the most ever raised during a single event by the local chapter.

In March this year, the Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida held their annual dinner at a Hyatt Regency (Sarasota).

In 2012, United Airlines hosted a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast at the Houston Hyatt.

In November this year, Cecile Richards will speak at the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s yearly gathering at the San Francisco Hyatt.

Sounds like Planned Parenthood and the Hyatt Regency have a good business relationship. I think we can pretty much assume why the Hyatt gave preference to the baby butchers over the Kermit Gosnell movie screening.

Texas Board of Education drops Hillary Clinton from history classes

LOL.

From NY Post: Call it a case of the blind deleting the blind.

Texas educators have booted Hillary Clinton, Helen Keller and other historical figures from state social studies classes, which require students to learn about “significant social leaders in the United States.”

Clinton being the first woman to run for president and Keller’s accomplishments as a deaf and blind person apparently don’t qualify.

“Military and first responders are best represented,” the state’s Board of Education’s advisory committee recommended prior to a vote on the change Friday.

High schoolers in the Lone Star state had studied Clinton under a “citizenship” section of its curriculum, which focuses on trailblazers such as Andrew Carnegie, Thurgood Marshall and Sandra Day O’Connor, according to the Dallas Morning News.

And third-graders learned about Keller, a prolific author and political activist who earned a college degree despite her handicap.

But the board’s advisory committee determined she “does not best represent the concept of citizenship.”

At least two committee members said the group concluded that there were too many historical figures for Texas kids to study, so they graded candidates based whether they triggered a “watershed change” and if they were from an “underrepresented group,” the paper reported.

Clinton scored a 5 out of 21 points. Keller scored a 7 out of 20.

“There were hundreds of people,” said Misty Matthews, a committee member and teacher, about the volume of historical figures kids are required to learn. “Our task was to simplify… we tried to make it as objective as possible.”

There board made no specific comments about Hillary Clinton. Students are still required to learn about Bill Clinton.

Removing the former first lady and secretary of state will save teachers 30 minutes of instruction time, and axing Keller will save 40 minutes, the advisory committee estimated, according to the paper.

While Clinton and Keller were scrapped, evangelist and Baptist pastor Billy Graham – who was also recommended for removal by the committee – was spared. So were references to Moses, and his “influence” on America’s founding documents.

The board wants students to continue explaining how the “Arab rejection of the State of Israel has led to ongoing conflict” in the Middle East, a requirement the committee recommending eliminating.

The board will cast its final vote on the curriculum re-do in November.

The Deranged Left: Texas teacher on leave after bullying pro-Trump student

Mocking the children to own the cons.

From Fox News: A high school biology teacher is on administrative leave after she allegedly mocked a student for supporting President Trump and calling others “a bunch of Trumpies” in Round Rock, Texas.

The incident occurred on the fifth day back from summer vacation, Aug. 22, at McNeil High School outside of Austin, according to district officials.

The bullied student’s mother claims the public school teacher said: “By the way, I hate Donald Trump with a burning passion and he is a complete douchebag.”

She told KHOU11 the instructor singled out her son for his conservative views and support for Trump’s tax plan, calling him “Trumpy” instead of his name and saying things including “Hey, Trumpy, do you have an answer to this?” or “What do you think, Trumpy?”

She said her son didn’t want to talk about politics in science class and felt embarrassed to be targeted.

At the end of the class, the mother said the teacher put one last insult against her son, mocking his beliefs: “Now, you’re not going to fight me when we start talking about evolution, are you?”

His parents filed a formal complaint against McNeil High School, which has 2,600 students.

District spokeswoman Jenny LaCoste-Caputo told Fox News the teacher was immediately removed from the classroom after the district was made aware of the alleged incident, or “political discussion,” that occurred in the AP biology class.

“In Round Rock ISD, our goal is to create a classroom environment where students feel safe and respected,” LaCoste-Caputo said in a statement. “The teacher was removed from the classroom, pending review, and remains on administrative leave as appropriate action is considered.”

The teacher has been assigned other duties that don’t have her interacting with students. She is still getting paid.

The student’s parents want the “angry” teacher permanently removed from the classroom.

ICE Texas raid results in arrest of 150 illegal aliens

Works for me.

From The Guardian: Agents from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) arrested more than 150 people at a trailer manufacturer in north Texas following allegations of immigration violations.

At a Tuesday news conference shortly after the raid, officials called the arrests “one of the larger work site enforcement operations conducted at one site in the past 10 years”. It comes amid a sharp increase in such raids under the Trump administration over the past year.

The raid was carried out by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), a branch of Ice. Katrina Berger, the special agent in charge of HSI’s Dallas office, called the suspects “illegal aliens who are unlawfully working here in the United States at this business”.

Berger said that the raid came after receiving tips that the company, Load Trail, hired undocumented immigrants who had used fraudulent identification documents.

One witness told the Dallas Morning News that armed agents came in from “every corner”.

“They drew their guns and told everyone to hit the ground,” Dennis Perry, a Load Trail factory worker, told the paper. Some people went running and were tackled, Perry said, adding that a few workers hid by shelves but were quickly discovered.

Worksite immigration raids have become increasingly common under the Trump administration. In June, immigration agents targeted a meatpacking plant in Ohio, and arrested more than 100 workers suspected of using stolen or fraudulent identification. A raid at a meatpacking plant in eastern Tennessee in April ensnared a similar number.

The arrests in such raids have almost entirely been “administrative”, not criminal, meaning that arrest warrants only need to be signed by immigration agents and not by a judge.

Ice “administrative” arrests of immigrants without criminal convictions have spiked 203% in the first full 14 months of Trump’s presidency compared to the final 14 months of the Obama administration, growing from 19,128 to 58,010, according to an NBC report.

Load Trail, which did not immediately reply to a request for comment, could also be punished. As a part of the administration’s hardline stance on immigration violations, officials have indicated an increased focus on penalizing employers who knowingly hire undocumented people.

Last year, then acting Ice director Thomas Homan said his agency was “firing up” work site enforcement efforts. “We will take action against those employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens,” Homan said. “We need to take the magnet away.”

Illegal alien and children rapist caught trying to get back into our country/Eagle Pass Border Patrol photo


From US Customs & Border Protection (DEL RIO, Texas): U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Station arrested a Honduran man, previously convicted of rape and indecent exposure to a minor, who attempted to re-enter the country after having been previously removed.
“Through diligent and tireless commitment to their duty, our agents have arrested another dangerous criminal attempting to enter the country illegally,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Felix Chavez. “The potential hazards agents face when encountering such individuals cannot be understated.  I applaud the professionalism of our employees and their willingness to stand in harm’s way for the safety of the nation.”
On June 10, agents arrested David Milton Ulloa-Erazo, 34, for illegally entering the United States near Eagle Pass. Once at the station, records checks revealed prior convictions in Massachusetts in 2008, for rape and indecent exposure to a minor. Ulloa-Erazo was sentenced to eight years imprisonment for those crimes and was subsequently deported to Honduras.
Ulloa-Erazo faces prosecution for illegal re-entry into the United States – 8 USC § 1326 – which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment.
The Del Rio Border Patrol Sector is part of the Joint Task Force-West South Texas Corridor, which leverages federal, state and local resources to combat transnational criminal organizations. To report suspicious activity call the Del Rio Sector’s toll free number at 1-866-511-8727.

Lawyer for Houston serial killer Danny Bible says he's "too sick" to execute

danny bible

Rapist and murderer Danny Bible


Firing squad works for me.
From Houston Chronicle: Lawyers for Houston-area serial killer Danny Bible filed a civil rights suit Friday alleging the aging death row inmate is in such poor health that any attempts to execute him will end in a gruesome, botched procedure.
The so-called “ice pick killer” has Parkinson’s, bad veins and a slew of other medical conditions that raise the possibility of a prolonged and painful lethal injection process his lawyers argue could violate the 8th Amendment’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
The 66-year-old is scheduled to die on June 27.
“Texas will almost certainly join Alabama and Ohio and add itself to the unconscionable list of botched executions in America,” his attorney Jeremy Schepers told the Chronicle.
“Mr. Bible is an elderly, frail man who has been confined to a wheelchair for the last 15 years and his health is rapidly deteriorating,” he continued. “Recent medical evaluations confirm that his veins are inaccessible and unsuitable for placing an IV. Any attempts to carry out the execution will amount to torture, cause excruciating pain, and violate his constitutional rights.”
Bible’s bid for reprieve comes months after a high-profile botch that forced officials in Alabama to call off the execution of Doyle Hamm, a 61-year-old death row prisoner with lymphoma. In February, a lethal injection team there spent hours poking the condemned killer’s arms, legs and groin to find a usable vein before ultimately giving up as the midnight deadline approached.
Previously, Ohio saw similarly botched procedures in the attempted execution of Romell Broom in 2009 and Alva Campbell in 2017. Schepers writes that Bible is in worse health than Hamm, Campbell or Broom.
The Texas lethal injection preparation – a part of the process media and witnesses are not permitted to observe – involves inserting two IV lines, while the prisoner is strapped to a gurney.
But lying down causes Bible shortness of breath, and his lawyers argue that he would “likely be choking and gasping for air” during attempts to hook up IVs that may be “futile” anyway.
Bible’s legal claim, which lays out a “galaxy of medical issues” in detail over the course of 90 pages, names Texas Department of Criminal Justice officials and “anonymous execution team members” among its numerous defendants.
This isn’t the first time a Texas death row prisoner has fought his sentence by questioning the lethal injection process. Thomas “Bart” Whitaker – a Fort Bend man eventually spared by Gov. Greg Abbott – was one of three inmates behind a years-long suit alleging the drugs Texas uses could cause undue suffering.
And earlier this year, hours before his February execution, John Battaglia unsuccessfully tried winning a stay by raising concerns about two allegedly botched executions his lawyers said were caused by too-old drugs.
Both of those cases focused on the possibility that the drugs themselves would cause suffering, a claim that could more generally apply to any death row prisoner. Bible’s argument focuses more narrowly on the possibility that he, specifically, is unfit to execute.
“To my knowledge this is the first suit of its kind in Texas,” said lethal injection expert and death penalty lawyer Maurie Levin, who worked on the Whitaker and Battaglia cases.
In Bible’s case, his lawyers suggest that an alternative method – firing squad or nitrogen gas – would decrease the risk of suffering.
Bible was initially sent to death row in 2003, more than two decades after the crime that landed him there.
A former drifter, Bible’s lengthy string of violence dates back to at least 1979. That May, a passerby found the bloodied, half-naked body of Inez Deaton along the slope of a Houston bayou. She’d been stabbed 11 times with an ice pick before her killer posed her corpse by the water.
For nearly two decades, Deaton’s slaying went unsolved – but Bible’s violent streak continued.
In the years that followed, Bible terrorized women in the Midwest, once setting his girlfriend’s car on fire because he didn’t like her haircut. After he returned to Texas and settled west of Fort Worth, he murdered his sister-in-law Tracy Powers and her infant son Justin. Then, he killed Powers’ roommate, Pam Hudgins, and left her body hanging from a roadside fence.
Following those killings, he fled to Montana, where he kidnapped a woman and raped an 11-year-old girl, according to court records.
Eventually, he was caught and in 1984 he pleaded guilty to Hudgins’ murder. He was sentenced to 25 years for the killing and 20 years for a Harris County robbery. He was released on parole eight years later, under a since-repealed mandatory supervision law.
While still on parole, he raped and molested multiple young relatives, including a 5-year-old. Then in 1998, he raped Tera Robinson in a Louisiana motel room before stuffing her into a duffel bag when he became enraged that he couldn’t maintain an erection. The woman broke free and called for help.
Bible was eventually caught in Florida, and freely admitted to his crimes under questioning.
Weeks after he was sentenced, Bible narrowly escaped death during a head-on-collision on the way to death row. The officer behind the wheel of the prison transport vehicle, 40-year-old John Bennett, died in the wreck, while Bible ended up in a wheelchair.
In past appeals, Bible’s attorneys have used his deteriorating medical condition to argue against his execution, saying he can’t be a danger in his current state.
Texas has already executed six men this year, including another Houston serial killer, Anthony Shore. Aside from Bible’s, there are seven other death dates on the calendar in Texas.
