AOC, Omar, Tlaib Silent As Palestinians Outlaws LGBT Activity in West Bank

They would have gone nuclear if Israel did this.

Via PJM:

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) have remained silent after the Palestinian Authority banned LGBT activity in the West Bank. These members of “The Squad” have supported legislation praising the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and voted against legislation condemning it. PJ Media reached out to them for comment on the move, and they have remained silent.

Early Monday morning, The Jerusalem Post reported that the PA and Palestine Police had outlawed LGBT activity in the West Bank and threatened to arrest members of the LGBT group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society. Al-Qaws was planning a gathering for members in Nablus at the end of the month. The group only has offices in Israel — in East Jerusalem and in Haifa.

Luay Zreikat, a spokesman for Palestine Police, said LGBT activities are “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society.” He added that Al-Qaws’s activities are completely “unrelated to religions and Palestinian traditions and customs, especially in the city of Nablus.”

I Love America & Colin Kaepernick Won’t Like My Hat

By Debbie Schlussel

I’ve been wearing this hat for the last two days and just came from the gym in this pic. Happy Birthday, America and G-d Bless America!

Happy Fourth of July, Everybody. So DAMN PROUD to be American. And, yes, I do believe in “America, Love It or Leave It.” That means you, whiny little bitch Colin Kaepernick . . . and the swoosh you rode in on. (And, yes, that is a Nike swoosh on my shirt, but I bought it at the Salvation Army (where I buy most of my clothes) for $2.50, so I am not giving that hypocritical, backboneless piece of crap company any more of my money.) In case, you’re wondering, the hat is from Circle K gas station and is made by a company called Pugs. It was pricey but worth it because it’s a great hat and, in contrast to Krap-ernick, I want the world to know that I LOVE America!

Miss Nevada State Barred From Miss America Pageant for Being Conservative Speaks To “Gateway Pundit”



Army National Guardsman and combat veteran Katie Jo Williams says that she has been stripped of her “Ms. Nevada State 2019” title and barred from competing in the Miss America pageant over her political views.

Miss Nevada State Barred From Miss America Pageant for Being Conservative Speaks to TGP

Williams tells the Gateway Pundit that over the five months that she held the title, the director would frequently call her and tell her that she was being too political on social media and ask her to delete posts.

“Over the course of the five months that I actually had the title, every now and then the director would basically tell me that I’m being too political and she’s not a fan of what I’m saying.”

In other messages, William’s said, the director would tell her to take her sash to events and get photos with political leaders. They wanted her to get photos with Donald Trump Jr. at a Turning Point USA event, for example, but would then hypocritically chastise her for “being too political.”

“I was very confused by this,” Williams said of the mixed messages she was receiving from the organization.

Williams explained that because she has been in the military for 12 years, she knew to have the organization send her all of their requests and demands in writing, “because I learned that if it’s not in writing, it didn’t happen.” She has been posting some of the exchanges to her Twitter account.


BREAKING: NRA Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre: Trump Assures Us that Universal Background Checks Are Off the Table




Wayne LaPierre, the Chief Executive and Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association, tweeted this out tonight:

I spoke to the president today. We discussed the best ways to prevent these types of tragedies. @realDonaldTrump is a strong President and supports our Right to Keep and Bear Arms! – Wayne LaPierre

President Trump told the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre that universal background checks are off the table in upcoming discussions on protecting Americans from mass shooters.

The Daily Beast reported:


President Trump reportedly called embattled NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre on Tuesday to tell him universal background checks were off the table as a legislative response to the shootings in El Paso and Dayton.

The call, reported by The Atlantic, is the latest, and most direct, case of Trump backing away from a proposal that he seemed to embrace in the aftermath of those two recent mass shootings. And it left officials on the Hill scrambling for answers. One office that has consulted with the White House on background checks legislation said that they had not been informed that the president was shelvin

Obama Warned Biden Campaign Advisers To Make Sure Biden Did Not ‘Damage His Legacy’

Still an egomaniac.

Via DC:

Former President Barack Obama warned Joe Biden’s campaign advisers in March to make sure the former vice president did not “damage his legacy.”

Obama summoned Biden’s campaign advisers to a March meeting where they briefed the former president on Biden’s campaign strategies, according to the New York Times.

After the meeting, Obama reportedly told the campaign advisers to make sure that Biden did not “embarrass himself” or “damage his legacy” during his campaign, two sources familiar with the situation told the New York Times.


Report: Biden Told Obama He Was Too Old to Run for President Again



And that was in 2008.

Via Free Beacon:

A recent New York Times report on the brotherly bond between Barack Obama and Joe Biden contains some interesting details about how Obama ultimately arrived at the decision to select Biden as his running mate in 2008. Unlike Hillary Clinton, among others, Biden was seen as a safe choice in part because he lacked presidential ambitions and was unlikely to exploit the vice presidency to maneuver for a future White House run.

Biden, who leads the Democratic primary field, even went so far as to pledge his undying loyalty to Obama, and insisted that after two failed presidential campaigns, he had given up on trying to be president. Being Obama’s second-in-command would be his final act in politics. After all, he would be in his mid-70s by the end of Obama’s second term—too old to run again.

NYC Mayor’s Wife Skips Over A Popular Catholic Saint Mother Cabrini (pictured), A Catholic Saint That Citizens Want To Honor, To Instead Honor Drag Queens?????

Via Breitbart:

New York City Mayor de Blasio’s and a 2020 Presidential candidate  wife has rejected the results of a public vote calling for a statue of Mother Cabrini (pictured), a Catholic saint, and instead opted to honor other “women,” including two drag queens.

Chirlane McCray, the mayor’s wife, launched a “She Built NYC” program and invited the public to vote on the names of women they want the city to recognize with a statue. Mother Cabrini got more votes than any other woman (219), yet McCray’s panel rejected the public’s choice.

Without explanation, McCray decided on a group of people that were nowhere near the top choices picked by New Yorkers, including the two drag queens who founded the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR).

Trump’s Dig at Chris Cuomo Shows Arbitrary Danger of ‘Red Flag Laws’


U.S.A. – -( “Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant?” President Donald Trump asked in a Wednesday Twitter tweet. “Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!”

He was referring to the CNN talking head’s screaming meltdown and threat of violence at a New York bar against a customer who called him “Fredo.” His furious reaction is instructive, particularly in light of Cuomo’s elitist disparagement of Second Amendment-recognized birthrights. The well-earned Streisand Effect will no doubt follow him to the end of his days, but it by no means rises to the level of legal justification to confiscate guns.

Defenders of the right to keep and bear arms, alarmed by the president’s backsliding on promises made to gun owners to win their votes, are pointing out the obvious in their replies to the president.

“Your tweet here @realDonaldTrump is precisely why: 1) #RedFlag laws are awful policy ripe for abuse, and 2) why your personal opinion cannot lawfully or constitutionally result in another person’s fundamental human rights and property being taken from them by force (govt guns),” Firearms Policy Coalition answered back.

“With one Tweet POTUS explains how red flag laws can and will be abused,” commentator Dana Loesch weighed in.


Trump Trashes Fox News to Reporters, Makes Vague 2020 Debate Threat: ‘I’m the One That Calls the Shots’


President Donald Trump went on a tear against Fox News this afternoon and singled out two of the network’s most notable Democratic pundits as he bemoaned what’s happened to the network.

In response to a question about a new Fox News poll, Trump said, “Fox is a lot different than it used to be. I can tell you that. Juan Williams, then they have the wonderful woman that gave Hillary Clinton the questions. That was a terrible thing. And all of a sudden, she’s working for Fox. What’s she doing working for Fox?”

Trump was referring there to Donna Brazile, the former DNC chair who now works for Fox and, like Juan Williams, regularly co-hosts The Five.

“Fox has changed, and my worst polls have always been from Fox,” Trump said. “There’s something going on at fox. I’ll tell you right now. And I’m not happy with it.”

He even said this:

“I think they’re making a big mistake because Fox was treated very badly by the Democrats. Very, very badly. Having to do with the debates and other things. And I think Fox is making a big mistake because, you know, I’m the one that calls the shots on that — on the really big debates. I guess we’re probably planning on three of them. And I — well, I’m very — I’m not happy with Fox.”

He went on to give shout-outs to Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs and Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham and Jesse Wattersand Jeanine Pirro and “even Greg Gutfeld.”

He said of Gutfeld, “He wasn’t good to me two years ago. Now he sees all I’ve done. He says ‘would you rather have a great president or a nice guy?’ I think I’m a nice guy, but nobody’s done in 2 1/2 years what I’ve done.”

Muslim Cleric Killed After Cow He Was About to Ritually Slaughter Fights Back


Cow described as being “big and fierce.”

A Muslim cleric in East Java who was about to participate in the ritual slaughter of animals to celebrate the Islamic festival of Eid was killed after one of the cows fought back.

The 64-year-old man, known as Sureki, was about to take part in the sacrificial butchering of four cattle and 17 goats as part of a ritual for the Islamic Day of Sacrifice at a mosque in Blitar.

However, one of the cows escaped from its tethering and ran at full speed 100 meters towards Sureki.

“The cow suddenly ran toward him and struck [Sureki’s] chin with its head,” an eyewitness told The Jakarta Post. “The cow is big and fierce. Its leash was broken when it tried to escape,” he added.

Sureki fell backward and hit his head, rendering him unconscious, before being rushed to hospital.

Sureki was in a coma for three days but doctors couldn’t save him. He was the head of a chapter of the country’s largest Islamic organization.

Despite the tragic nature of the death, most respondents to the Jakarta Post article didn’t express much sympathy for Sureki.

Animal rights activists routinely denounce the festival of Eid, which they say legitimizes animal cruelty.

One such voice is comedian Ricky Gervais, who tweeted yesterday that such barbarism shouldn’t be condoned simply because people claim it to be…….Read more »

Left-Wing ‘Fact-Checker’ Snopes Is Trying To Deplatform Babylon Bee

The fact-checking website, wrote a “fact-check” article questioning the satirical nature of the Babylon Bee.

Snopes has fact-checked the Babylon Bee many times before. An insider to the fact-check world told The Federalist that Snopes readers will send the fact-check site articles from the Babylon Bee to ask whether they are true or not.

Regardless of Snopes’ original intentions with fact-checking satire, an article it published today took an opinionated aim at the Babylon Bee. Some pundits have even said Snopes is actively working to deplatform and delegitimize the Babylon Bee.

Snopes Issues Pre-Approval Of All Statements Made During Tonight’s Democratic Debate …

The Babylon Bee wrote a satirical piece on a recent news story regarding a woman who lied about being told to “go back to where she came from” by a white male in a grocery store. The woman was a Democratic Georgia lawmaker who was evidently using the phrase “go back to where you came from” in light of President Trump’s tweets.

In the satirical piece, the Babylon Bee made fun of the story by saying the woman was told to “go back to where she came from” by a Chick-fil-a employee.

The subhead of the Snopes “fact-check” reads, “We’re not sure if fanning the flames of controversy and muddying the details of a news story classify…


Trump’s Large Union Crowd At Shell Was Given The Option Of Not Showing Up — And Not Getting “PAID”!!



The choice for thousands of union workers at Royal Dutch Shell’s petrochemical plant in Beaver County was clear Tuesday: Either stand in a giant hall waiting for President Donald Trump to speak or take the day off with no pay.

“Your attendance is not mandatory,” said the rules that one contractor relayed to employees, summarizing points from a memo that Shell sent to union leaders a day ahead of the visit to the $6 billion construction site. But only those who showed up at 7 a.m., scanned their ID cards, and prepared to stand for hours — through lunch but without lunch — would be paid.

“NO SCAN, NO PAY,” a supervisor for that contractor wrote.

President Donald Trump leaves the stage after speaking to a crowd of construction workers before touring Royal Dutch Shell's petrochemical cracker plant on Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019 in Potter.

That company and scores of other contractors on site and their labor employees all have their own contracts with Shell. Several said the contracts stipulate that to get paid, workers must be onsite.

Those who decided not to come to the site for the event would have an excused but non-paid absence, the company said, and would not qualify for overtime pay on Friday.

Shell spokesman Ray Fisher explained that the workers onsite have a 56-hour workweek, with 16 hours of overtime built in. That means those workers who attended Mr. Trump’s speech and showed up for work Friday, meeting the overtime threshold, were being paid at a rate of time and a half, while those who didn’t go to hear the president were being paid the regular rate, despite the fact that both groups did not do work on the site Tuesday.

North Carolina Sanctuary Releases Honduran Charged with Rape and Child Sex Offenses


Nine months after new Sheriff Garry McFadden implemented sanctuary policies in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, his jail released a previously-deported Honduran man charged with rape and child sex offenses.

Oscar Pacheco-Leonardo, 33, was arrested by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department for first degree rape and two counts of indecent liberties with a child on June 14.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said it issued a detainer on June 15, requesting custody, or for the jail to notify the agency when Pacheco will be released, but he was released from Mecklenburg County custody on June 16 with no communication to ICE.

“This is yet another example of a clear public safety threat being released onto the streets of Mecklenburg County rather than into ICE custody due to the current sheriff’s policy on ICE non-cooperation,” said ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations Atlanta Field Office Director Sean Gallagher.

Pacheco was at large for two months before ICE tracked him down and arrested him.

“By releasing a previously deported alien facing serious criminal charges, Mecklenburg County chose to release a serious public safety threat onto the streets of Charlotte where he was free to potentially harm others for nearly two…..Read More HERE

Proposed Trojan Horse Gun Bill: Reject Handgun Permits For Any “Biased Language”


New York’s State Senate is New York’s State Senate is New York’s State Senate is considering a bill that will allow the government to investigate a citizen’s social media and search engine history before the sale of a handgun.

The bill, proposed by Democrat Kevin Parker, would allow police to reject applications to purchase pistols or even revoke current gun licenses based upon the presence of “biased language” in a person’s social media. If this bill passes, people can be denied access to firearms because they typed politically-incorrect statuses, messages, or searches. The bill is reportedly designed to prevent shootings like the Tree of Life attack. Adams stated that with the current laws on the books, “someone can technically say on their social media profile, ‘I’m going to buy a gun to go shoot someone’ and still walk in the store and buy the gun without the flagging and announcement of that illegal action being dealt.”

Using a citizen’s 1st Amendment rights to infringe on his 2nd Amendment rights is a real win-win for leftists. Who would it work against? TownHall’s Chris Reeves cited the relevant excerpt of the bill (emphasis his):

In order to ascertain whether any social media account or search engine history of an applicant presents any good cause for the denial of a license, the investigating officer shall… review an applicant’s social media accounts for the previous three years and search engine history for the previous year and investigate an applicant’s posts or searches related to (I) commonly known profane slurs or biased language used to describe the race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, religious practice, age, disability or sexual orientation of a person; (II) threatening the health or safety of another person; (III) an act of terrorism; or (IV) any other issue deemed necessary by the investigating officer.

It would be one thing to say that proposal of violent action would disqualify a person from buying a gun. But trying to bar a person from buying self-defensive firearms because they used “biased language” is a clear red flag. Any language an authority finds objectionable for any reason can become a pretext to disarm law abiding conservatives.

Part of what is uniquely sinister about this bill is that it will work directly with social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram as well as search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing for any presence of offending language. For those who have been closely watching Big Tech controversies, Google recently dropped their “Don’t Be Evil” slogan as they collaborated with the Chinese government to… .Read More HERE

New York Condo Owner Busted And Is Facing Fines After Inspectors Uncovered Makeshift Apartments.

The real estate market in New York has never been this tight.

A Lower East Side condo owner turned his small apartment into a mini-village — by converting it into an illegal duplex with 11 sub-units that had ceilings as low as 4 ¹/₂ feet high, officials said Friday.

The illegal micro apartments at 165 Henry Street are so cramped that condo owner Xue Ping Ni even put up bubble wrap as protection to keep residents from hitting their heads on the many low-hanging pipes.

The bizarre arrangement in Ni’s apartment No. 601 — which was raided and shut down Wednesday night by the city Buildings Department — was compared to something out of a movie.
