They love America so much they’re saluting our icons. God bless the Mexicans.
The experts tell us that the Chinese on average are smarter than white people.
An IQ test should not be the only criteria for American immigration policy, although it would be better than what we have now.
The woman in this story out of China was just doing what her culture requires her to do. Chinese culture tells Chinese immigrants into America to eat dogs and cats, gamble, etc. We don’t need them.
A flight from Shanghai to Guangzhou was delayed after an elderly woman passenger was suspected of throwing coins into the plane’s engine to ensure “good luck”, mainland media reported.
China Southern Airlines Flight 380 was held up at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport after an elderly woman passenger caused a disruption, according to the airlines official WeChat account. An investigation into the incident is under way.
Passengers boarding the flight reportedly saw an elderly woman throwing coins at the engine for “blessings” from the middle of the boarding staircase and alerted the crew.
Ground staff said the woman, who appeared to be about 80 and had limited mobility, was accompanied by her husband, daughter and son-in-law.
After maintenance crew inspected the aircraft, they found nine coins in one engine.
The captain was quoted as saying the metal, if sucked up by the engine, could have caused serious damage, including failure.
The flight was later given a green light and took off at 5.52pm, more than five hours late. It is scheduled to arrive in Guangzhou at 8.14pm.
China Southern Airlines told reporters that passengers were reminded to comply with civil aviation laws and regulations, which prohibit behaviour that could jeopardise the safety of the flight.
Mainland air travellers have been responsible for several safety incidents in recent years, including opening emergency doors and assaulting cabin crew. Beijing has responded by creating a tourist black list, with offenders banned from travel.
That plane could have crashed with no one the wiser as the cause if others had not seen her throwing the coins into the engine.
Be alert when traveling with Chinese passengers.
Watch as Trump supporters do a nice job of putting the heat on Rep. Maxine Waters after an appearance in Gardena, California.
Excerpt from Raw Story
The California Democrat, who spoke Saturday at a packed town hall meeting in Gardena, said she worries some Americans will be forced to do what her family did if the Republican health care bill passes. Senate Republicans have pledged to pass a bill before the July 4 holiday.
Some GOP senators have said they want to review the analysis of the bill from the Congressional Budget Office before making up their minds. The budget office has said it will release that assessment early next week.
Waters said the existing bill would deny access to people with pre-existing conditions, cause millions to lose their health care and penalize millennials.
“We can do better than this,” she said.
Supporter Gwen Bailey, 59, who works doing admissions at a hospital, said she worries especially about the people who could lose their insurance and the strain it would put on hospitals.
“It’s a lot that people would be losing,” she said.
Inside, chants of “USA! USA!” could be heard from around 80 protesters who paced back and forth outside the venue.
Waters’ opponents were dressed in pro-Trump garb and called her “Dirty Waters.”
Don’t believe for a moment that Johnny Depp is sorry for what he said. He’s sorry that there are proving to be some consequences.
Dipstick Depp was reported to the Secret Service by many. I hope for his sake that he’s not drunk out of his skull when he gets the dreaded knock on the door. The Secret Service might be forced to neutralize a drunk threatening man, even if he is a famous actor.
‘I intended no malice’
Johnny Depp has apologised for the controversial comments he made at Glastonbury about ‘assassinating’ Donald Trump.
On Thursday night, the ‘Edward Scissorhands’ and ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ star was addressing the audience at the Cineramageddon stage, before a screening of his 2004 film ‘The Libertine’ – when he made headlines by joking that “maybe it’s time” that an actor once more assassinated the President of the United States.
“I think he needs help,” Depp told the crowd, “and there are a lot of wonderful dark places he could go. A lot of Doc Martens… It’s just a question… I’m not insinuating anything, but… by the way, this is going to be in the press, and it will be horrible… but I like that you’re all a part of it. When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?”
As the crowd cheered his reference to the 1865 assassination of Abraham Lincoln by the actor John Wilkes Booth, Depp added: “I want to clarify, I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been a while! And maybe it’s time!”
After a huge backlash and being condemned by the White House, Depp has now responded.
“I apologise for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump,” said Depp in a statement. “It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.”
In an official statement, the White House said: “President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and its sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead. I hope that some of Mr Depp’s colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a democrat elected official.”
Glastonbury continues tomorrow with a headline performance from Foo Fighters, The National, Katy Perry, Alt-J, Phoenix, Craig David, Father John Misty and many more.
Many are reminding the public the Depp is a wife beater, drug addict, alcoholic and all-around bad guy.
Here’s over an hour exposing the Dipstick menace:

When Johnny Depp compared himself to John Wilkes Booth vis-a-vis President Trump, the British crowd gathered round cheers wildly.
At an appearance in England on Thursday, actor Johnny Depp joked about assassinating President Trump.
Depp was at a drive-in movie theater in Glastonbury, where he introduced his 2004 film The Libertine, when he began talking about the president, according to The Guardian.
“I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go,” Depp said.
Depp, noting his comments would “be in the press,” began discussing prior assassinations of presidents.
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” he asked, referencing John Wilkes Booth assassinating President Abraham Lincoln in 1865.
“I want to clarify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living,” Depp said. “However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”
Depp’s comments come a week after the politically-motivated shooting of Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise.
In recent weeks, a production of “Julius Caesar” in New York City’s “Shakespeare in the Park” sparked controversy when the play showed the Roman dictator, seemingly depicted as Trump, being brutally stabbed to death on stage.
Sponsors later pulled out of the event due to the “graphic” nature of the show.
Comedian Kathy Griffin also sparked controversy after a photo of her holding a bloodied Donald Trump mask was released to the public.
In a war, each side might wish to see the leader of the enemy side murdered. It might demoralize the enemy and bring the war to a close with victory.
If Depp, spelled D O P E, thinks his side can be victorious via assassination, he should rethink his twisted, dark, Satanic reasoning.
All a Trump assassination will do is bring out the guns, ready to kill Deep, Cher, Kathy Griffin, and a host of others in retribution. That’s not a threat, but a prediction.
Another prediction: Johnny Depp would be gunned down by the Secret Service if he comes within ten feet of Trump. I doubt he’s man enough to try it, but let him go ahead and see what happens.
Heh, heh. Maxine’s Plan B: Blame whitey.

The artist known as Sabo created these posters. He also did some nice trolling on Hillary during last fall’s election campaign.
ABC7 reports that pro-Trump protesters at Maxine’s town hall were ejected.
A few of Sabo’s earlier projects:
I remember the good old days when pregnant women were fired unless they were school teachers. I think teachers got a day or two off while a substitute teacher took over their classes.
Retarded feminist cat lady Meghann Foye isn’t happy with the current arrangement. She wants maternity leave for all women, not just mothers. I guess Meghann’s pregnant kitty cat makes her feel all motherly and stuff.
In this piece, Meghann says women are bad at putting themselves first. The truth is that women are bad at taking responsibility for themselves, which is why they generally vote for the welfare state and for slick con men like Bill Clinton.
Meghann Foye, 38, was jealous of co-workers clocking out for maternity leave, and decided she needed a break of her own. Here, the author of the novel “Meternity” (Mira, out now), tells The Post’s Anna Davies why she believes every woman deserves mandated “me time.”
I was 31 years old in 2009, and I loved my career. As an editor at a popular magazine, I got to work on big stories, attend cool events, and meet famous celebs all the time.
And yet, after 10 years of working in a job where I was always on deadline, I couldn’t help but feel envious when parents on staff left the office at 6 p.m. to tend to their children, while it was assumed co-workers without kids would stay behind to pick up the slack.
“You know, I need a maternity leave!” I told one of my pregnant friends. She laughed, and we spent the afternoon plotting my escape from my 10-hour days, fake baby bump and all.
Of course, that didn’t happen. But the more I thought about it, the more I came to believe in the value of a “meternity” leave — which is, to me, a sabbatical-like break that allows women and, to a lesser degree, men to shift their focus to the part of their lives that doesn’t revolve around their jobs.
For women who follow a “traditional” path, this pause often naturally comes in your late 20s or early 30s, when a wedding, pregnancy and babies means that your personal life takes center stage. But for those who end up on the “other” path, that socially mandated time and space for self-reflection may never come.
When I graduated from college in the early 2000s, I enjoyed the same unspoken expectation shared among my fellow Gen-Xers: If you poured your heart and soul into your career, you would eventually get to a director level and have the flexibility, paycheck and assistants beneath you to begin to create a work-life balance. Then the 2008 recession hit, and people were lucky to have jobs at all. Assistants and perks disappeared across industries, and I felt like the cultural expectation was that we should now be tethered to our desks and our smartphones.
It seemed that parenthood was the only path that provided a modicum of flexibility. There’s something about saying “I need to go pick up my child” as a reason to leave the office on time that has far more gravitas than, say, “My best friend just got ghosted by her OkCupid date and needs a margarita” — but both sides are valid.
And as I watched my friends take their real maternity leaves, I saw that spending three months detached from their desks made them much more sure of themselves. One friend made the decision to leave her corporate career to create her own business; another decided to switch industries. From the outside, it seemed like those few weeks of them shifting their focus to something other than their jobs gave them a whole new lens through which to see their lives.
While both men and women would benefit from a “meternity” leave after a decade or so in the workforce, the concept is one that would be especially advantageous for women. Burnout syndrome is well-documented in both sexes, but recent research suggests that women may experience it at greater rates; researchers postulate that it’s because women (moms and non-moms alike) feel overloaded by the roles they have to take on at work and at home.
Bottom line: Women are bad at putting ourselves first. But when you have a child, you learn how to self-advocate to put the needs of your family first. A well-crafted “meternity” can give you the same skills — and taking one shouldn’t disqualify you from taking maternity leave later.
As for me, I did eventually give notice at my job and take a “meternity” of my own. I may not have been changing diapers, but I grappled with self-doubt for the year and a half that I spent away from the corporate world. And I grieved the loss of my dad, who had just died after a long illness. But a “meternity” done right should be challenging. It should be about digging into your whole life and emerging from it more confident in who you are.
It also gave me the opportunity to help someone achieve their “meternity” dreams — even if that person was a fictional character. My first novel, “Meternity,” was just released, and is about a woman who fakes a pregnancy and discovers some hard truths about what it’s really like to “have it all.”
Ultimately, what I learned from my own “meternity” leave is that any pressure I felt to stay late at the office wasn’t coming from the parents on staff. It was coming from myself. Coming back to a new position, I realized I didn’t need an “excuse” to leave on time. And that’s what I would love the take-away for my book to be: Work-life balance is tough for everyone, and it happens most when parents and nonparents support and don’t judge each other.
I want kids in the future, and I might still take a traditional maternity leave. I might not. But either way, I’m happy my “meternity” taught me to live on my own terms and advocate what works for me.
Final word on Meghann:
