Maxine Waters Fires Back at Bill O’Reilly for “James Brown wig” Joke

I’m confused. Which one is which? Is that James Brown in the top photo or is it Maxine Waters?

I guess Bill O’Reilly was right.

The Hill

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Tuesday blasted Fox News host Bill O’Reilly for mocking her hair as a “James Brown wig,” saying she won’t be deterred by such comments.

“I am a strong black woman and I cannot be intimidated,” she told host Chris Hayes on MSNBC’s “All In.” “I cannot be undermined. I cannot be thought to be afraid of Bill O’Reilly or anybody.”

“And I’d like to say to women out there everywhere – don’t allow these right-wing talking heads, these dishonorable people, to intimidate you or scare you.”

O’Reilly said earlier Tuesday he “didn’t hear a word” of Waters’s remarks on the House floor the day before because of her hair.

“I didn’t hear a word [Waters] said,” he said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “I was looking at the James Brown wig. If we have a picture of James, it’s the same wig.”

“I love James Brown, but it’s the same hair, James Brown — alright, the ‘Godfather of Soul,’ had,” O’Reilly continued, referring to the legendary singer who died in December 2006.

O’Reilly was reacting to Waters’s remarks Monday questioning the patriotism of President Trump’s supporters.

“[African-Americans] fight against this president, and we point out how dangerous he is for this society and for this country, we’re fighting for the democracy,” she said on the House floor.

The story goes on to say that Bill O has apologized to the strong, independent Maxine. The apology doesn’t bother me a bit because it’s doubtful that O’Reilly was sincere about it.

Amazing Video: Shark Asks Diver for Help in Removing Hook Stuck in Belly

Published on Mar 26, 2017

Incredible moment a shark nudges a diver to get him to remove a hook that was stuck in its flesh

Diver Josh Eccles was in water in Jupiter, Florida, when shark approached him

It gently bumped its head against him several times while another diver filmed

Eccles lifted it by the nose to reveal its underbelly where a hook was stuck

The Lemon shark allowed him to fish it out and then it swam away

This is the tender moment a Lemon shark nudged a diver in a gentle plea to get it to remove a hook that was stuck in its flesh.

Diver Josh Eccles was in the water in Jupiter, Florida, with photographer friend Chris Maddeford when the shiver of sharks approached them.

One approached him several times, gently bumping its nose in to his wet suit.

‘Every time it swam by me, it would bump into me a little more. They always bump into us but they don’t bump into us that frequently,’ he told WFLA.

He said he was grateful to have had such a one-on-one encounter with the creature.

‘That was a crazy opportunity, experience to be a part of.’

Lemon sharks are considered non-aggressive towards humans. They are known to bite or attack only if they feel in immediate danger or under threat.

Mother ‘livid’ over son’s treatment by TSA at DFW Airport (Video)

A TSA thug does everything but explore a boy’s anal cavity.

Pedophilia legalized?

At about the 2 minute mark the pedo goes back to rub the lad’s genital area a second time.

WTF????

WFAA

A mother is “livid” after she said her family was “treated like dogs” by TSA officials at DFW International Airport.

Jennifer Williamson posted a video on Facebook Sunday morning that shows her son, Aaron, being patted down by a TSA agent. You can see the agent speak to the boy, then begin to pat down his back side, before moving to the front.

Williamson writes that Aaron was kept for over an hour while he was checked out. She had asked agents to screen him in “other ways” because he has Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).

“He set off NO alarms. He physically did not alarm at all during screening, he passed through the detector just fine. He is still several hours later saying ‘I don’t know what I did. What did I do?'” Williamson writes.

She adds that two DFW Airport police officers also joined the pat down at one point.

“Somehow these power tripping TSA agents who are traumatizing children and doing whatever they feel like without any cause, need to be reined in,” she says.

As of Monday evening, the Facebook post had more than 65,000 shares and had been viewed more than three million times.

TSA issued the following statement to WFAA:

“TSA allows for a pat-down of a teenage passenger, and in this case, all approved procedures were followed to resolve an alarm of the passenger’s laptop.

The video shows a male TSA officer explaining the procedure to the passenger, who fully cooperates. Afterward, the TSA officer was instructed by his supervisor, who was observing, to complete the final step of the screening process.

In total, the pat-down took approximately two minutes, and was observed by the mother and two police officers who were called to mitigate the concerns of the mother.

The passengers were at the checkpoint for approximately 45 minutes, which included the time it took to discuss screening procedures with the mother and to screen three carry-on items that required further inspection.”

This is not how a free people are treated by its government.

Company introduces ‘snowflake test’ to weed out ‘whiny, entitled millennials’

Deep State British propagandist Metro News serves up a heapin’ helpin’ of leftist bias in its reporting on a business owner who wants to hire his kind of people.

Metro would go down easier without its constantly slanted reporting. Recognize it as mixing news with indoctrination.

Any liberty lover would grant a business owner the right to hire people to his liking.

metro.co.uk

Trigger warning! Millennials may want to retreat to their ‘safe spaces’ after a company introduced a ‘snowflake test’ specifically to weed them out.

A (ridiculously macho) American company has introduced a quiz for applicants – full of questions designed specifically to weed out ‘whiny, entitled millennials’.

This being America, it’s full of crazy stuff about how much you love guns and how patriotic you are – and CEO Kyle Reyes actually seems proud of the fact 60% of applicants drop out after hearing about the test.

Yeah, #MAGA, dude! And whatever else it is that low-IQ Trump supporters like to say!

Reyes says, ‘A snowflake is somebody who is going to whine and complain and come to the table with nothing but an entitled attitude and an inability to back their perspective.’

The questions include, ‘What does America mean to you?’, and ‘When was the last time you cried and why?’

In case you aren’t already barfing up your breakfast, here’s the full quiz.

One quick final thought. This test is probably just a marketing gimmick. You know it’s going to weed out blacks and Latinos. Thus, the American courts would find it discriminatory. Kyle Reyes is playing us, I think.

Jeff Sessions warns sanctuary cities will lose billions in Justice Department grants

Whatever failures President Donald Trump may be experiencing, he’s trying to keep his campaign promises.

This move is easy unless some liberal judge comes along to say to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, “You can’t do that. That’s waycisssssss.”

Al.com

So-called “sanctuary cities” that refuse to comply with immigration law will have federal funding taken away if they don’t reverse their policies, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned Monday.

The former Alabama senator made the announcement during the White House daily press briefing. Sessions said the Department of Justice will be enforcing a policy set last summer by the Obama administration on sanctuary cities.

Sessions cited a recent Department of Homeland Security report that he said showed there were 200 instances where jurisdictions refused to honor detainer requests by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for illegal immigrants charged with serious crimes, including murder, sex offenses against children, rape, hit-and-run, and drug trafficking.

“Such policies cannot continue. They make our nation less safe by putting dangerous criminals back on the streets,” Sessions told reporters. “Countless Americans would be alive today and countless loved ones would not be grieving today if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended.”

There are no sanctuary cities in Alabama, although the Birmingham City Council passed a resolution last month symbolically declaring the Magic City a sanctuary city that is “a community free of prejudice.”

A Justice Department office is estimated to award more than $4 billion in grants to states and localities. Sessions warned that sanctuary cities will lose out on the money – used for community policing and other programs – unless they reverse course.

“I strongly urge our nation’s states and cities and counties to consider carefully the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to enforce our immigration laws, and to rethink such policies,” the attorney general said. “The American people want and deserve a lawful system of immigration that keeps us safe and serves the national interest.”

While Sessions said his agency would merely carry out a policy approved during the Obama White House, he didn’t rule out the Trump administration taking further action on sanctuary cities.

“We believe that grants in the future can be issued that have additional requirements,” he said.

Alex Jones Apologizes For Promoting ‘Pizzagate’

Fire up the troops and then pull the rug out from underneath them.

Isn’t that a strategy that controlled opposition would use to demoralize the troops?

That’s what alex Jones has just done.

Interestingly, leftist Raw Story reports that the 60 Minutes interview with Mike Cernovich on Sunday night (see my earlier post on Cernovich by scrolling down the homepage) included a segment where 60 Minutes tries to debunk #pizzagate.

First, the story.

WBUR

Longtime conspiracy theorist and propagator Alex Jones has apologized to the Washington, D.C. pizzeria Comet Ping Pong and its owner James Alefantis for his show’s role in promoting the false “pizzagate” conspiracy theory involving a child sex-abuse ring.

Jones, the host of the radio and web show bearing his name and the owner of the website Infowars, said from a prepared statement that to his knowledge, “neither Mr. Alefantis, nor his restaurant Comet Ping Pong, were involved in any human trafficking as was part of the theories about Pizzagate that were being written about in many media outlets and which we commented upon.”

He continued: “I want our viewers and listeners to know that we regret any negative impact our commentaries may have had on Mr. Alefantis, Comet Ping Pong, or its employees. We apologize to the extent our commentaries could be construed as negative statements about Mr. Alefantis or Comet Ping Pong, and we hope that anyone else involved in commenting on Pizzagate will do the same thing.”

Jones’ apology Friday came the same day a 28-year-old man pleaded guilty to charges related to a December incident when he brought an AR-15 rifle and other weapons into the restaurant and fired shots inside. Edgar Maddison Welch, of Salisbury, N.C., said he drove from his home to the Washington restaurant to “self-investigate” the conspiracy theory.

False rumors on the Internet included allegations that a child sex ring was operating out of the restaurant’s nonexistent basement and that it involved Hillary Clinton and her former campaign chairman John Podesta. Employees of Comet have received many threatening phone calls and have been the targets of online harassment and death threats.

The Daily Beast reported that Welch was a Facebook fan of Jones and Infowars, and Welch told The New York Times he had listened to Jones’ radio show.

Multiple times in the statement, Jones says that “many media outlets” were reporting on the theories; it could be seen as an attempt to minimize the role his show played in their promotion.

Despite Jones’ claim that the reason for the apology is because “we think it is the right thing to do,” it may have more to do with the perceived threat of legal action from Alefantis, who wrote to Jones in February asking for several retractions. The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi explains:

“Under Texas law, the Austin-based Jones had to retract or apologize for the stories by Friday — one full month after receiving Alefantis’s letter — to avoid exposing InfoWars to punitive damages in a libel suit.”

It’s rare for Jones to make a public apology. The Infowars website has a correction section. There are only two entries, of which the Comet apology is one.

Infowars describes the mission of Jones and the website as “seeking the truth and exposing the scientifically engineered lies of the globalists and their ultimate goal of enslaving humanity.”

NPR’s David Folkenflik noted other conspiracy theories Jones has discussed:

“Jones has claimed the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were an inside job, that the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was a hoax, and that President Obama would round up people into concentration camps.”

Jones was not the originator of “pizzagate,” however, which has spread on social media and on sites like Reddit.

Even after its wide debunking by most mainstream media outlets, “pizzagate” continues, as evidenced by the small group of protesters who gathered near the White House on Saturday:

The Hill’s Will Sommer reports that Jones’ apology isn’t enough to sway the hard-core believers:

Social psychology professor Viren Swami of Anglia Ruskin University told NPR’s Michel Martin that it’s hard to change someone’s belief once that person accepts a conspiracy theory. “We look for evidence that fits what we already know or what we already believe, and we try to avoid information or evidence that we either disagree with or that we know doesn’t fit with our perspective,” he said. “And if someone comes along and says, here’s the evidence, your natural tendency’s actually to rehearse arguments against that evidence.”

A lawsuit by Alefantis? That seems highly unlikely. It would expose things related to the John Podesta emails that Podesta would not want exposed.

Forget about the idea that #pizzagate has been debunked, as claimed in the article. For something to be debunked, there must be an investigation. There has been no investigation of the bizarre goings on at Comet pizza.

And why hasn’t Alefantis gone after David Seaman, the subject of an earlier post (scroll down on the homepage from this post). Seaman has brutally exposed the Podesta emails to a large audience of his followers.

If anything, Seaman has more street cred than Jones, who is widely seen as controlled opposition. Seaman suffers the same labeling, but his focus in life is almost solely on #pizzagate, unlike Jones who spreads himself across numerous issues.

No Apology from Lawn Jockey TV Star Who Calls Boston “most racist city”

MICHAEL CHE. THE BIG NIG ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.

Somehow, via some magic, the lawn jockey who used to live in my front yard has been brought to life and become a Saturday Night Live star.

He should have stuck to wearing his uniform and riding horses because now he’s the horse’s ass.

Muh jockey’s name is Michael Che. I used to call him Rastus when he lived on my front yard.

By the way, since I Tweet these posts and since Twitter is cracking down on “offensive” words, I’m going to be using “lawn jockey” with some frequency in future headlines. Words like “Nigger,” “Negro,” and my favorite, “jigaboo,” can attract unfavorable attention from Twitter. Besides, I like the term lawn jockey. See the illustration below.

MSN

BOSTON (AP) — “Saturday Night Live” star Michael Che is not backing away from comments he made about Boston, when he called it the “most racist city” he has ever visited.

The Boston Globe reports that the co-anchor of “Weekend Update” told a Boston University crowd Thursday about how he received angry messages on social media after he made the comment on “SNL” the night before the Super Bowl.

He responded to one woman by urging her to “talk to your closest black friend and ask them to explain it to you.” He says the woman responded by answering, “Touche.”

Che, who often jokes about President Donald Trump on the NBC show, told the audience he never apologizes for language or controversial statements because he’s “just trying to be more presidential.”

COME HOME RASTUS. WE MISS YOU.
