Stop pretending the Olympics
are about world peace

New York Post, by Jonathan S. Tobin

Posted By:mc squared, 2/13/2018 7:58:44 AM

What’s wrong with the Olympics isn’t limited to the rapturous reception accorded to Kim Yo-jong in Pyeongchang, South Korea. As Bethany Mandel pointed out here, it’s a disgrace that the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was fawned over by the international press and favorably compared to Vice President Mike Pence because he refused to play along with that evil regime’s charm offensive. It’s appalling that many are so willing to embrace those responsible for countless murders and torture just to take a swipe at President Trump. But the heart of the problem isn’t the obsession with Trump or

Glad I wasn´t the only one creeped-out seeing the cherubic girls cheering and clapping. Tobin makes a good comparison to the German Olymipics of ´36.

When the ancient Greeks held their Olympics, they simply put their internecine wars on pause while they played. As soon it was finished, they went right back to fighting again. They didn´t care about peace and human rights. They just wanted a venue to show off their athletes in a demonstration of superiority. I´ll watch the Olympics again without all that propaganda claptrap.

I don´t watch the Olympics, and I don´t watch the NFL. Most of my reasons overlap the two.

One dead after cops shoot up

Denver police officers opened fire on a vehicle — killing one man and injuring another — in the belief that it contained an attempted cop killer who escaped from custody, officials said Thursday. There was just one problem, though: They had the wrong guy. “Officers were acting on information provided to them that [the inmate] was in the passenger seat,” Denver Police Commander Barb Archer explained at a press conference. “They believed that to be him,” she said. “Their actions were based on that belief and based on his criminal history past of being an attempted murderer, that justifies their

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt called for a “coordinated” response between New York State and City officials to address the ongoing lead crisis. Asked whether federal intervention is needed to protect New York children and tenants from lead poisoning, the Environmental Protection Agency chief urged action on all fronts. “I think a local, state and federal response that is very coordinated and collaborative is terribly important,” Pruitt said in an interview. “We each play a role. I’d love to see steps taken at the local level to invest.” Gov. Cuomo already announced an emergency declaration for New York Housing Authority buildings

Police in Glendale, Wis., are currently seeking the public’s help in identifying an irate McDonald’s customer who assaulted a teenage employee after receiving the wrong breakfast order. The suspect and a friend reportedly pulled up to the drive-thru of the McDonald’s just before 11 a.m. on March 18, where they placed an order for a breakfast sandwich with bacon, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. But upon receiving a breakfast sandwich with sausage instead, the woman became angry. “What the [expletive] is this? I didn´t order no sausage biscuit,” said the woman, who then threw the food back at the

A student gunman opened fire Tuesday at a high school in southern Maryland, injuring two students before an armed school resources officer intervened, authorities said. The gunman was killed, but St. Mary´s County Sheriff Tim Cameron said it was not clear if the resource officer fired the fatal shot. The attack began shortly before classes were to begin at Great Mills High School when the gunman wounded a female student in a hallway, also hitting a male student, Cameron said. A school resources officer arrived at the scene and exchanged shots with the gunman, Cameron said.

Congressional Black Caucus members want the bombings in Austin, Texas, to be classified as “terrorist attacks” — and are calling on officials to determine whether they are “ideologically or racially motivated.” While the two young men injured in the most recent blast are both white, all of the other victims have been either black or Hispanic. “We cannot stand idly by while our communities are under attack,” reads a statement from the concerned Black Caucus members — which include Chairman Cedric Richmond, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) and Homeland Security Committee Ranking Democrat Bennie Thompson, of Mississippi

A DC lawmaker blamed a late-winter snowfall on a family of Jewish bankers — accusing them of controlling the climate and orchestrating natural disasters. Council member Trayon White Sr. apologized for the comments he made in a since-deleted video on his official Facebook page posted Friday morning as snow fell over the capital. “Man it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” White can be heard saying in the video, the Washington Post reported.

The shocking story has gone viral: A passenger boarded a United Airlines flight from Houston to New York with her two children and her 10-month-old French bulldog, Kokito. Despite Kokito being in a TSA-compliant carrier, there was an issue with fitting the carrier under the seat as required. The flight attendant took the carrier and placed it in the overhead compartment. Kokito was dead before the flight landed at LaGuardia Airport. How could this happen? The flight attendant is claiming she wasn’t aware there was a dog in the carrier, but this is implausible. The dog’s owner and her 11-year

The last NYPD cops assigned full-time to New York City public schools are being moved out — despite nationwide calls for heightened security in the wake of last month’s Florida shootings. As the nation mourned the 17 victims of the school massacre at Parkland, Fla., the NYPD was removing Sgt. Raul Espinet from his post at Francis Lewis HS in Fresh Meadows, Queens — where he had worked for more than a dozen years. Parents, teachers and students are livid over the beloved cop’s departure. “My colleagues think it’s outrageous — and really stupid,” teacher Arthur Goldstein said. “We’re not

Open government isn’t just good government. It’s the public’s right. In Florida, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office and Broward County school district are fighting to keep exterior surveillance video from the day of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School hidden from view. As journalists and citizens who’ve waged uphill battles against secrecy well know, government agencies too often invoke broad disclosure exemptions in the name of protecting public safety when they’re really just trying to protect their own jobs. Feckless Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and media darling school Superintendent Robert Runcie are defendants in an open-records

Florida lawmakers shot down an amendment on Monday that would have banned semi-automatic “assault” weapons like the AR-15 used in the Parkland school massacre. They did, however, agree to raise the legal age for purchasing a firearm to 21 — and approved legislation that would give teachers the right to carry guns in school, NBC-2 reports. The amendments were introduced as part of a packaged set of bills being offered up following Nikolas Cruz’ alleged shooting spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Florida’s Senate Rules Committee spent more than two hours debating the gun-control issues before eventually casting their

As some of their colleagues hid behind cars outside, these were the cops who ran in toward the bloodbath that was unfolding inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS. With outrage over reports that at least four Broward County sheriff’s deputies failed to enter the Parkland, Fla., school building while Nikolas Cruz went on a deadly six-minute shooting rampage, the officers from the Coral Springs Police Department recalled the “awful” and “surreal” experience of treating injured kids and trying to convince terrified victims that it was safe to come out of hiding. It “was bad as you can imagine — times 10,”

A week and a half before the 2016 election, Donald Trump´s personal attorney paid a porn star named Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with the Republican candidate for president. Today, that arrangement is well on its way to becoming the most talked-about "hush agreement" in history, with potential legal and political implications for the president. Through his spokesman, Mr. Trump has denied having an affair with Stormy Daniels, and his lawyers are now threatening her with financial ruin, saying she has to pay $1 million dollars every time she violates her agreement to stay silent.

Veteran US Senator John McCain is to deliver a "no-holds-barred" verdict on his fellow Republican Donald Trump´s presidency in a new book of memoirs, his publishers announced Monday. Despite being in the same party as the president, McCain has been one of Trump´s most forceful critics over the last two years, both in the run-up to the 2016 election and its aftermath. Although he has been undergoing treatment for brain cancer since last summer, McCain has continued to voice his concerns about Trump´s leadership and recently questioned the nomination of a CIA official once involved in torture to lead the

Romney, the former Republican presidential nominee who is running for U.S. Senate in Utah, was asked about his conservative credentials during a question-and-answer session in Provo, the Daily Herald reported. “For instance, I’m a deficit hawk,” Romney said, according to the Provo newspaper. “That makes me more of a conservative than a lot of Republicans and a lot of Democrats.

The great “60 Minutes” strip show finally arrived after two weeks of teasing and tantalizing from CBS News and all it showed was a little ankle and a flash of thigh, leaving the customers cheated and demanding their money back.

Despite organizing a global movement against gun violence which they themselves billed as a ´revolution´, some of the survivors of the Parkland school massacre have not been granted admission to their chosen colleges. On Tuesday, David Hogg, one of the most vocal survivors of the February 14 atrocity, revealed that he had been rejected from four of the schools he applied to; UCLA, UCSD, UCSB and UC Irvine. Hogg, 17, is not alone. Fellow survivor Ryan Deitsch was turned down by UCLA. It is not clear what either wants to study. Hogg has a 4.2 GPA and scored a 1270 on his SATs,

Whispers are now rampant that President Trump is using the significant funds allocated to military spending in the most recent omnibus bill he signed last week to allocate full and immediate funding for the southern border wall project. If so it would be a brilliant side-step maneuver that would outflank the anti-secure border members of Congress – including many among the Republican leadership. An omnibus bill is not a budget and so allows a president considerable powers to spend those funds as they choose. If this now plays out as some are suggesting, Donald Trump just beat Congress at its

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels has a lot more details to share about her alleged 2006 affair with Donald Trump — including intimate details that could identify the president — than what aired over the weekend on a nationally televised interview, the star’s attorney said Monday. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said in a “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday night that she was threatened by someone on Trump’s behalf for attempting to go public about her alleged affair.

In the wake of the “March For Our Lives” rally Saturday, and with no legislative appetite for more gun control laws, Democrats in both the House and Senate have introduced a bill requiring background checks for purchasing bullets. (Snip) The Ammunition Background Check Act was introduced by Wasserman Schultz in the House and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) in the Senate. Like its name implies, it would require anyone looking to buy bullets to be subjected to background checks, similar to the one required to purchase a firearm in the first place.
