Calling Out Around the World

All jihad is local, but all "Islamophobia" is global. So, if a Muslim of Afghan origin shoots up a gay nightclub in Florida and kills 49 people, that´s just one crazed loner and no broader lessons can be discerned from his act. On the other hand, if a white guy shoots up two mosques in New Zealand and kills 50 people, that indicts us all, and we need to impose worldwide restraints on free speech to make sure it doesn´t happen again. I´m ecumenical enough to mourn the dead in both gay clubs and mosques,

Yeah. We´re at war with Islam, but seem to be giving up without doing much.

I am Islamophobic. I pay attention to the news and extrapolate (sometimes) my opinions from intelligent news. I have a closely followed filter.

We need to stop reacting at all to the charges of Islamophobia. So what if we are cautious? I ran across two sullen-looking middle easterners--young men--hanging about our port in Lyon, with backpacks on the ground by their sides. Did I want to linger in that area? No. So sue me.

Any liberal pulls the Islamophobia and racist labels to end discussion and silence conservative opinion. They know what they are doing, and it works for them. But we need to end the knee-jerk reaction of being horrified and becoming silent.

These young people today don´t realize what real racism is.

I´m just weary of all these labels and how we are programmed to react to them.

Well, Mark, the rules aren’t the same. While no one will say it, our Muslim brothers are too stupid and too backwards, too 7th century, to have 21st century rules applied to them. They always are a special case.

You´re never going to stop lefties from calling you names--they´re immature like that. The key is to not give a damn. Now if they try to attack you physically, that´s a different matter.

Our beloved president, Donald John Trump, showed his very sane genius on Twitter today. He didn´t tweet. He let the Bungling Bob Mueller report sit atop the Drudge Report without a retort because the Mueller´s witch hunt has torpedoed his critics. Why would the president suddenly want to make the news about him?Mueller´s investigation failed to result in a single indictment of President Trump, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Jared Kushner, the Trump Organization, or anyone in America for collusion.

Key Findings Coming on Mueller

WASHINGTON — Attorney General William Barr spent Saturday reviewing the special counsel’s confidential report on the Trump-Russia investigation, but Barr’s “principal conclusions” summary for Congress was not coming for at least another day. No summary for Judiciary Committee leaders — or the public — just yet, said a senior Justice Department official, speaking only on condition of anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss the review process. Barr has said he expected to send his version to the lawmakers as soon as this weekend after determining what should be made public.

According to most media reporting AG William Barr is meeting with Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein today and reviewing the completed Mueller report. At the end of this review, according to statute, AG Barr will commission a “Principle Conclusion” summary report that he will deliver to congress.(Snip) it is likely the White House will be given the Principle Conclusion Summary around the same time as congress. The White House (executive branch) may also be able to review the full underlying documentation behind the summary…. that’s likely where the political fight for the ‘narrative’ will take place.

   

 



 
Report: Biden Being Asked to
Consider One-Term Pledge
Breitbart Politics, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 3/23/2019 4:28:33 PM     Post Reply
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s advisers are reportedly asking him to consider pledging to just serve one term in office if he wins his party’s nomination and faces off against President Donald Trump in the general election. (Snip)Biden’s advisers are discussing “a possible pledge to serve only one term” and framing Biden’s 2020 campaign “as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country.” Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.”

Dem Rep. Lewis on Trump Impeachment
Post-Mueller Report: ‘I Think

Saturday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) offered his thoughts on the completion of Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which was submitted to Attorney General William Barr a day earlier. Lewis insisted Congress will demand the report be released to the public. The Georgia Democrat also said he still believed President Donald Trump’s impeachment was still inevitable. “I think that day will come,” Lewis said when asked by Reid about impeachment prospects. “I don’t think he’s legitimate. I said it back at the end of the election. I still believe that today.”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Friday told CNN´s Wolf Blitzer his committee is prepared to subpoena Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Attorney General William Barr over the contents of Mueller´s report. If Barr withholds information Schiff and his buddies deem "significant." Schiff "If necessary, we will call Bob Mueller or others before our committee," Schiff explained. He also said he believes the House Judiciary Committee "called the Attorney General [William Barr]" before them. "At the end of the day, the (Justice) department is under a statutory obligation to provide our committee

Speaking at a naturalization ceremony in Texas on March 18, former President George W. Bush said immigration to America “is a blessing and a strength.” He also said that “borders need to be respected,” and praised the work of border patrol agents, but that’s not what the media seized upon.(SnipGet it? George W. Bush has won his grim battle with history. Various photos showed him inviting dozens of new citizens up to the podium, including Muslims in headscarves, Hispanics, and Africans. Apparently including anyone of European descent would have been bad optics.

Democrat 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke warned from the campaign trail in South Carolina Friday night there may not be another year of America if the Mueller report is not made public. “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

The San Antonio City Council banned Chick-fil-A from San Antonio International Airport over “anti-LGBTQ behavior” as part of a new concession plan for the airport. District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño motioned to approve the Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement with Paradies Lagardère for the airport Thursday on condition Chick-fil-A be excluded from the agreement. Treviño asserted Chick-fil-A has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior” and that such a business had no place in the city’s airport. (Snip) the restaurant would have liked to have had a dialogue with it prior to the decision.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support
