Basketball-American Freed by China After Trump’s Appeal Says He Only Said Thank You Because University Forced Him

A basketball-American who gained infamy by being stupid enough to shoplift in China while representing America has revealed that he was insincere when he thanked American President Donald Trump for arranging his release from China.

Shoplifting in China is punishable by 10 years in prison. Tinted player Liangelo Ball apparently has little concept of time since most of us without tints know that ten years in a Chinese jail would not be a vacation.

Race realists knew that Ball thanked Trump because someone made him do it. Blacks are not big on thank yous to white people.

LiAngelo Ball apparently wasn’t very sincere when he thanked President Donald Trump for helping him get permission to return home after his shoplifting arrest in China.

China Experimenting with Spray Designed to Turn Sodomites into Normal People

Our Chinese friends are sex realists, not bullsh*t artists, when it comes to so-called gay males. They understand that fudge packing is a disease, not a normal condition or another lifestyle.

They’re backing up their sex realism with medical research.

Zerohedge

Around mid-November, Human Rights Watch (HRW) issued a shocking report [4] detailing China’s gay conversion problem.

Powerful first-hand accounts expose how state-owned hospitals are using electric shock machines and medication to convert gays back to some form of ‘normalcy’. The practice is an open secret in China, where a majority of gays are forced by their families into hospitals, because the culture labels it as a curable-disease.

Trump Responds to WaPo Claim that he Regularly Attacks Colored People

LAVAR BALL AND SHOPLIFTING SON.

President Donald Trump is unique in the way he responds to criticism by prominent people. He fights back on Twitter. He’s been doing it for years.

The idea that he singles out Negros for special attacks is nonsense. The claim by a Washington Post (WaPo) writer that he has it in for colored folks is pretty crazy.

For example, we know he loves Mike Tyson and Diamond and Silk, whom he Tweeted about the other day.

Excerpt from CBS News

President Trump on Thanksgiving morning did not help ease the tension in his ongoing public spat with the father of a UCLA basketball player when he responded to a tweet in which a Washington Post opinion writer described how Mr. Trump’s treatment of LaVar Ball is a part of a larger trend in how he treats prominent African-Americans.

“New post: Trump’s rage-tweets about LaVar Ball are a part of a pattern,” Greg Sargent wrote on Twitter Wednesday, along with a link to his opinion piece. “Trump regularly attacks high-profile African Americans to feed his supporters’ belief that the system is rigged for minorities.”

Twenty hours later, from his club Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, the president responded to Sargent’s tweet with a single line, in all caps: “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

It’s unclear if the president’s intention was to respond to the tweet. Thirteen minutes later, the president tweeted the same line in a separate tweet. CBS News has reached out to the White House for comment.

In his opinion piece, Sargent theorized that Mr. Trump, “regularly goes out of his way to attack prominent African Americans not just to ‘stoke the culture wars,’ as this euphemism often has it — but, more precisely, to stoke the sense among many of his supporters that the system is unfairly rigged on behalf of minorities, and that he’s here to put things right.”

The public spat between Mr. Trump and Ball began after Mr. Trump claimed responsibility for the release of three UCLA basketball players — including Ball’s son LiAngelo Ball — arrested in China for shoplifting.

When asked about Mr. Trump’s involvement in the matter, LaVar Ball told ESPN, “Who?” He added, “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

Mr. Trump did not respond to that well, saying “IT WAS ME” who freed the players and calling Ball a “poor man’s version of Don King,” comparing Ball to the prominent boxing promoter who also happens to be black.

Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by Jackie Chan

Chan Kong-sang, SBS, MBE,[1] PMW[2] (陳港生; born 7 April 1954),[3] known professionally as Jackie Chan, is a Hong Kong martial artist, actor, film director, producer, stuntman, and singer. In his movies, he is known for his acrobatic fighting style, comic timing, use of improvised weapons, and innovative stunts, which he typically performs himself. He has trained in Kung Fu and Hapkido.[4][5] He has been acting since the 1960s and has appeared in over 150 films.

Chan has received stars on the Hong Kong Avenue of Stars, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He has been referenced in various pop songs, cartoons, and video games. He is an operatically trained vocalist and is also a Cantopop and Mandopop star, having released a number of albums and sung many of the theme songs for the films in which he has starred.

Chan says he has always wanted to be a role model to children, and has remained popular with them due to his good-natured acting style. He has generally refused to play villains and has been very restrained in using swear words in his films – he persuaded the director of Rush Hour to take “fuck” out of the script.

Pissed Off Trump Says He Should Have Left Three Basketball-Americans in Chinese Jail

Hey, we told Trump it was a mistake to get the Dindus sprung from a Chinese jail. Now he says he regrets it.

Told ya, Mr. President.

Watch the left go bonkers over Sunday’s disavowal. “He beez disispectin dem boyz.”

Fox News

President Trump on Sunday responded to the father of one of the UCLA basketball players detained in China on shoplifting charges after the man snubbed the president’s successful effort to get the teammates released, saying, “I should have left them in jail.”

The president responded after LaVar Ball, the outspoken father of UCLA player LiAngelo Ball, downplayed Trump’s effort.

Trump said while on his recent trip to Asia, at the same time the players allegedly shoplifted in China during a basketball tournament, that he had spoken directly with Chinese President Xi Jinping about the matter.

“Who?” LaVar Ball later told ESPN. “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

Trump tweeted Sunday: “Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!”

Later Sunday, Trump tweeted again, saying, “Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!”

LiAngelo Ball, one of three UCLA players accused of shoplifting, thanked the president upon returning last week to the United States.

Freshmen Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday from Shanghai. They each thanked Trump during a press conference Wednesday about the incident.

The players were detained in Hangzhou for questioning following allegations, before the 23rd-ranked UCLA Bruins beat Georgia Tech in their season-opening game in Shanghai as part of the Pac-12 China game. The rest of the UCLA team returned home earlier.

Trump said Tuesday he had a long conversation about the three players’ status with his Chinese counterpart.

Ball’s outspoken father, LaVar, whose eldest son, Lonzo, plays on the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers team, was in China at the time of the incident. He spent some time promoting the family’s Big Baller Brand of athletic shoes.

Trump will feel the heat with more accusations that he’s nuts, hates blacks, and so forth.

Nobody is used to the truth in America. Especially from a politician.

CNN Accuses Trump of Racism for Getting Basketball-Americans Released from Chinese Jail

This CNN fake news smear job was penned by Chris Cillazi, a fairly big name in liberal news analysis.

Excerpt from CNN

Trump is someone who likes to be praised. He likes to be adulated at all times — and tends to respond well to people who say nice things about him. (See “Putin, Vladimir.”)

He wants to get credit. Always. He seethes when either he doesn’t get the credit he thinks he deserves or sees someone else getting credit for something he did.

The three players — which include the younger brother of Los Angeles Laker Lonzo Ball — are accused of shoplifting during a trip to China to play a game. (They reportedly stole sunglasses from a Louis Vutton store.)

Trump told the media that he spoke directly to Chinese President Xi Jinping about the case. The three players were released on Tuesday and arrived back in Los Angeles at 6 p.m. PT Tuesday night.

Larry Scott, the PAC-12 commissioner — the conference that includes UCLA — quickly issued a statement thanking Trump. “We want to thank the President, the White House and the US State Department for their efforts towards resolution,” said Scott.

That “thank you” is apparently not enough for Trump, at least according to his tweet. He wants the actual players — LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill — to say “thank you.”

That the three players are all young black men should also not be lost here. Trump’s history on racial issues — both as president and as a private citizen — shows some level of intentionality when it comes to using racially coded language and taking advantage of racial animus and stereotypes for his own political gain.

The image of an older white man in a position of power demanding thanks from three young black men for saving them will set off a lot of alarm bells for people. And, understandably so, given Trump’s previous actions in the wake of the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and in the ongoing NFL anthem protests.

Even if you take out the racial element, what Trump is asking for is to be thanked (or, more accurately, thanked by the “right” people) for doing his job.

Part of being President is trying to get US citizens out of dicey situations in foreign countries. That doesn’t mean that Trump’s personal appeal to Xi didn’t have any effect. In fact, it likely played a major role in the release of the players. But, demanding to be praised by three teenagers for what you did for them isn’t exactly presidential.

Maybe it’s “modern day presidential”?

Update: In scripted statements to the press once back in the US, the players did apologize. LiAngelo Ball specifically thanked President Trump and the US government.

The players also admitted shoplifting according to other reports I’ve seen.

In response to CNN, every politician seeks adulation. Witness Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s Tweet was trying to teach the black youths some manners. That’s all. There’s nothing wrong with it. When someone helps you, you say thank you.

Confusion About Zimbabwe as Army Takes Control of Harare But Denies Coup

FILE PHOTO OF COURAGEOUS DOG GUARDING WHITE ZIMBABWE FAMILY.

Our concern is for the safety of our white brothers and sisters in Zimbabwe. Otherwise, let the African natives have at each other.

Let’s hope that so-called refugees are not created by the present situation. They have a way of ending up in Europe and America.

BBC

The military has taken control in Zimbabwe but said President Robert Mugabe, in power since 1980, was safe.
After seizing state TV, an army spokesman announced it was targeting people close to Mr Mugabe who had caused “social and economic suffering”.

The move came after Mr Mugabe sacked his deputy, Emmerson Mnangagwa, in favour of his wife, Grace.

Heavy gun and artillery fire could be heard in northern parts of the capital Harare early on Wednesday.

A statement read out by a general on air denied it was a coup. There was no immediate word from the president himself.

Messages appeared on a Twitter account purportedly run by the ruling Zanu-PF party saying he had been detained. But there has been no confirmation by the army.
\
Mr Mugabe, 93, has dominated the impoverished country’s political scene since independence from the UK.

South African President Jacob Zuma said he hoped events in Zimbabwe would not lead to “unconstitutional changes of government”.

The UK Foreign Office advised Britons “currently in Harare to remain safely at home or in their accommodation until the situation becomes clearer”, while the US embassy in Harare advised US citizens in Zimbabwe to “shelter in place” until further notice.

China, Zimbabwe’s biggest trading partner, says it is closely watching the situation and hopes that the relevant parties can properly handle their internal affairs.

How did the military justify its move?

Troops in armoured vehicles have been out in the streets of the capital Harare since Tuesday.

After soldiers overran the headquarters of the ZBC broadcaster, Maj Gen Sibusiso Moyo went on air to say the military wished to “assure the nation that his Excellency the president… and his family are safe and sound and their security is guaranteed”.

“We are only targeting criminals around him who are committing crimes… that are causing social and economic suffering in the country,” he said.

“As soon as we have accomplished our mission, we expect that the situation will return to normalcy.”

Other key points of the statement include:

Citizens should remain calm and limit unnecessary movement

The military assures the Zimbabwean judiciary that its independence is guaranteed

Security services should “co-operate for the good of our country” and any provocation would “be met with an appropriate response”

All leave for the defence forces is cancelled and personnel should return to barracks immediately

It is not clear who is leading the military action.

Army chief Gen Constantino Chiwenga, who visited China last week, said on Monday the army was prepared to act to end purges within Zanu-PF.
