High School Cheerleaders Placed on Probation FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR for Posing With Trump 2020 Banner

The photo had made the rounds on social media, which prompted the North Carolina High School Athletic Association to “take action,” according to a report from the Daily Mail. In North Carolina, students are prohibited from displaying political signs. If they break the rules again, the students may be subject to fines or even suspension.

“The focus of Friday night football games should be on our students – the players, cheerleaders, band members – the focus should not be on politics,” officials said in a statement to the Mail. “For this reason, we are hopeful the situation will resolve, and our student athletes can have a successful fall season.”

Some in the town are not pleased with this decision and will be holding a protest. They are encouraging people to bring pro-Trump swag to protest the athletic association.

“The North Stanly High School cheerleaders have been wrongly put on probation by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association for the rest of the football season because of holding up a Trump banner before a home game on 8-30-2019,” an event page supporting the students reads. “Please come out and help me show the school and the NCHSAA that freedom of speech is not dead. Please bring all your Trump and MAGA gear and lets throw our support behind the North Stanly High School cheerleaders.”

The Smearing Of Brett Kavanaugh Is An Attack On The Supreme Court

Destroying the institution is part of the plan.

 

Sure, it’s about partisanship and peddling books and selling newspaper subscriptions, but in the end, Democrats’ smearing of Brett Kavanaugh is also about delegitimizing the Supreme Court—the only institution that will inhibit the progressive agenda no matter who wins elections.

Conservatives justices aren’t merely wrong, they’re nefarious and racist and extremist, you see, so virtually anything Democrats do to try and stop them is now rationalized. In this world, the accused, rather than the accuser, bears the “burden of proof.” In this world hucksters like Michael Avenatti are turned into experts and major news outlets will eagerly repeat and spread slander as news.

This Sunday, The New York Times ran an excerpt from a new book, “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh,” in which reporters Robin Pogebrin and Kate Kelly not only rehashed allegations against Kavanaugh, but claimed that he’d been in another drunken incident in his college days.

My colleague Mollie Hemingway, co-author of a bestselling non-fiction book on the affair, had a copy of “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh” and noticed that the reporters had somehow failed to mention that the alleged victim had declined to be interviewed because she didn’t recall the incident. Whether dispositive or not, it seems like a noteworthy detail to skip in an excerpt accusing a Supreme Court justice of inappropriate sexual conduct.

We won’t even dwell on the fact that it was a liberal lawyer—one who happened to have been pitted against Kavanaugh during the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings—who opportunistically claims to have recalled this 35-year-old incident and reported it to the FBI. Jennifer Rubin and E.J. Dionne assure us he should be trusted.

In any event, the Times, caught in a blatantly unprofessional act, was forced to add an “editor’s note” that debunked the most newsworthy aspect of their own article. It was just another in an interminable series of “mistakes” by supposedly non-partisan journalists that happen to skew in the same exact partisan direction while creating…

 

Manhattan DA Subpoenas Trump Tax Returns

Unfortunately, the Manhattan DA is a corrupt Democrat.

Via Fox News:

NEW YORK CITY – Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office has subpoenaed tax returns belonging to President Trump and the Trump Organization through their accounting firm, Fox News confirmed Monday.

Jennifer Farrington, the chief marketing officer for the accounting firm Mazars USA, which has represented both Trump and the Trump Organization, told Fox News, “We have received a subpoena,” though she wouldn’t give specifics.

In a statement, Mazars says the firm will “respect the legal process and fully comply with its legal obligations.” The company added: “We believe strongly in the ethical and professional rules and regulations that govern our industry, our work and our client interactions. As a matter of firm policy and professional rules, we do not comment on the work we conduct for our clients.”

Trump Signals Military Action Over Attack On Saudi Oil Sites: ‘Locked And Loaded’

Iran might figure that would cause a problem in the market and harm Trump politically. But Trump has reserves to rely on so prices don’t spike.

Via Daily Wire:

President Donald Trump suggested on Sunday that the U.S. military could be used to respond to the terrorist attacks on oil sites in Saudi Arabia, for which U.S. officials say Iran was responsible.

“Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked,” Trump tweeted. “There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!”

Ex-Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL Player, 31, Is Charged With Trashing Two Of His Own Restaurants And Spraying The N-Word And MAGA On The Walls To Make it Look Like a Hate Crime So He Could Collect Insurance Money

  • Edwan Coughman, 31, was arrested on September 12 for allegedly wrecking two of his businesses to stage a hate crime and receive insurance money
  • Authorities responded to a burglary at Coughman’s businesses in Gwinnett County, Georgia, on Wednesday around 9.30pm
  • The inside of the restaurants had racial slurs written in fresh black spray paint and TVs were stolen
  • Authorities found Coughman in an unlicensed car with suggestive evidence, including spray paint cans
  • Coughman was charged with false report of a crime, insurance fraud and concealing a license plate

 

A former NFL player was arrested by police for allegedly wrecking two of his own businesses to stage a fake hate crime and be eligible to receive insurance money.

Authorities from the Gwinnett County Police Department in Georgia responded to a ‘burglary in progress’ call around 9.30pm on Wednesday when a witness reported a man damaging businesses.

The two businesses, Create and Bake Restaurant and Coughman’s Creamery, belonged to former NFL player and local business owner Edwan Coughman.

Inside the businesses, officers found ‘monkey’, the n-word, ‘MAGA’ and swastikas scrawled on the walls in fresh black spray paint.

‘The smell of spray paint was very fresh. When officers touched it, the paint appeared wet,’ a news release  from police said.

The cushions were reportedly sliced open, mirrors were broken, wires were cut, TVs were missing and the surveillance system was broken.

Saudi Oil Attack: This Is The Big One!!

 

Saturday’s attack on a critical Saudi oil facility will almost certainly rock the world energy market in the short term, but it also carries disturbing long-term implications.

Ever since the dual 1970s oil crises, energy security officials have fretted about a deliberate strike on one of the critical choke points of energy production and transport. Sea lanes such as the Strait of Hormuz usually feature in such speculation. The facility in question at Abqaiq is perhaps more critical and vulnerable. The Wall Street Journal reported that five million barrels a day of output, or some 5% of world supply, would be taken offline as a result.

To illustrate the importance of Abqaiq in the oil market’s consciousness, an unsuccessful terrorist attack in 2006 using explosive-laden vehicles sent oil prices more than $2.00 a barrel higher. Saudi Arabia is known to spend billions of dollars annually protecting ports, pipelines and processing facilities, and it is the only major oil producer to maintain some spare output. Yet the nature of the attack, which used drones launched by Iranian-supported Houthi fighters from neighboring Yemen, shows that protecting such facilities may be far more difficult today.

There are countries that even today see their output ebb and flow as a result of militant activity, most notably Nigeria and Libya. Others, such as Venezuela, are in chronic decline due to political turmoil. Such news affects the oil price at the margin but is hardly shocking.

Deliberate attacks by actual military forces have been far rarer, with the exception of the 1980s “Tanker War” involving Iraq, Iran and the vessels of other regional producers such as Kuwait. When Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi forces invaded Kuwait in 1990, removing its production from the market and putting Saudi Arabia’s massive crude output under threat, prices more than doubled over two months.

Yet Saturday’s attack could be more significant than that. Technology from drones to cyberattacks are available to groups like the Houthis, possibly with support from Saudi Arabia’s regional rival Iran. That major energy producer, facing sanctions but still shipping some oil, has both a political and financial incentive to weaken Saudi Arabia. The fact that the actions ostensibly were taken by a nonstate actor, though, limits the response that the U.S. or Saudi Arabia can take. Attempting to further punish Iran is a double-edged sword, given that pinching its main source of revenue, also oil, would further inflame prices.

While the outage may not last long given redundancies in Saudi oil infrastructure, the attack may build in a premium to oil prices that has long been absent due to complacency. Indeed, traders may now need to factor in new risks that threaten to take not hundreds of thousands but millions of barrels off the market at a time. U.S. shale production may have upended the world energy market with nimble output, but the market’s reaction time is several months, not days or weeks, and nowhere near enough to replace several million barrels.

After the smoke clears and markets calm down, the technological sophistication and audacity of Saturday’s attack will linger over the energy market.

Major League Baseball Denies Mets Request To Wear First Responders Hats On 9/11

Via SNY:

After the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the Mets — in defiance of Major League Baseball — played all of their remaining games wearing hats representing all of the different city agencies that were first responders that day.

The Mets have been told no by MLB in the years since about wearing the hats during games on Sept. 11, including in 2011 when they wanted to wear the hats on the 10th anniversary of the attacks.

“We’re just trying to keep it consistent,” MLB executive vice president of baseball operations Joe Torre told The Associated Press at the time. “Certainly it’s not a lack of respect. It’s just something we feel is the right thing to do.”

Eight years later, MLB is still refusing to let the Mets wear the hats in-game.

While the Mets wore first responder hats before the game on Wednesday night, they were required to switch to their regular hats for the game itself. Pete Alonso had wanted the team to wear the first responder hats in-game just as they had in the days following the attacks. But he was shut down by MLB.

“Originally I wanted to do some hats for us,” Alonso said after Wednesday night’s game. “I wanted to do custom hats with whatever group of first responders — if someone wanted to do FDNY or Port Authority they had the choice. Unfortunately there’s a lot of red tape with Major League Baseball, and they kind of shot that idea down. I think it’s kind of sad that guys weren’t allowed to — since that day the first game back, they kind of shut it down every year since. I think that’s really unfortunate.”

As a way to still honor the first responders after being rebuffed on the

Kamala Harris Wants to Federalize Truancy Prosecution

 

 

She’s crackers. She keeps coming up with things that are ridiculously unconstitutional and/or not legally kosher. Hard to believe she ever was a lawyer.

Via Free Beacon:

Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) said that she would bring school truancy under the auspices of the Department of Education if elected president.

Harris has faced backlash for her “tough on truancy” policy while San Francisco district attorney and California attorney general, which led to the arrest of parents whose children missed too many school days. Her recent comments on a liberal podcast suggest that in spite of her stated ambivalence about past enforcement, she would forge ahead in making California’s truancy law America’s truancy law.

Harris’s comments came during an interview with Angela Rye, a lawyer and liberal political commentator. Rye asked Harris if she would “extend the [anti-truancy] program on a federal level, or try to figure out ways to address truancy on a federal level?”

“Yeah,” Harris responded, “but as president it would be really doing it through the Department of Education. I did it through the mechanisms I had, because I wasn’t running the city, I wasn’t running the county. I wasn’t running the state.”

It is will soon be illegal in California for both public and charter schools to suspend disruptive students from kindergarten through eighth grade

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday signed into law Senate Bill 419, which permanently prohibits willful defiance suspensions in grades four and five. It also bans such suspensions in grades six through eight for five years.

The law goes into effect July 1, 2020.

A previous law had already banned schools from suspending defiant kids through third grade.

Sen. Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, who wrote the new law, said it would “keep kids in school where they belong and where teachers and counselors can help them thrive.”

“SB 419 puts the needs of kids first,” she said.

Testing Walmart

Gun rights activists in Texas are testing Walmart’s request not to open-carry in stores by doing just that.

David Amad, the vice president of Open Carry Texas, told The New York Times the 38,000 members of his group have openly carried their guns inside Walmart stores since the retailer announced last week it is “respectfully requesting” customers to no longer openly bring guns into its stores.

He said none of the members who have done so have been asked to leave.

*****

I’ve shifted as much of my shopping to the other grocery store in Lafayette, but I’ve been to Walmart a couple times since they’ve announced their decision to not allow open carry in their stores. In a small town, there’s some things that only Walmart carries unless I want to travel 40 miles and I just don’t have that kind of gas budget.
But I’m still seeing the same amount of people carrying their firearms openly, nobody’s nervous, the employees aren’t freaking out, and there’s still no sign on the door telling folks not to open carry.
