Army? Caravan? How about the “M” word? Fox News headline: Via Daily Caller. The Associated Press on Sunday changed a headline after a backlash from liberals furious at the AP for describing a caravan of illegal immigrants heading towards the United States as an “army of migrants.” “A ragged, growing army of migrants resumes march toward US,” read the original headline on the AP story. The AP later changed the headline to replace the word “army” with “caravan.” Though the AP has used the word “army” to refer to large groups of people besides migrants — including nurses and political activists — many on the political left criticized the wire service for its original headline. “This is not only incorrect,...
Kerry: ‘Strategic Thinking,’ Not ‘Concession,’ to Leave Iran’s Ballistic Missile Threats Out of Nuclear Deal Talksby Shifra on February 20, 2018
We gave Iran 1.7 billion dollars in cash, and you know what the world gets for it? Iran-backed terror group Hezbollah claims it now has 500,000 missiles pointed at Israel. Hey, great job, Obama! Via CNS. Setting aside Iran’s ballistic missile threats, support for terrorism and regional destabilization when crafting the nuclear deal was not a concession but “strategic thinking” on the part of the negotiators, former Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday. As he has done frequently since leaving office, Kerry used the opportunity of the Munich Security Conference to defend, at length, the Obama administration’s 2015 nuclear deal which President Trump has threatened to abandon. Kerry said that the U.S. recognized that the agreement being negotiated was...

Maybe the green represents the billions in pallets of cash sent to Iran? Via The Hill. Social media users on Monday reacted to the unveiling of former President Barack Obama’s portrait. Twitter users questioned the inspiration behind the portrait, with some comparing the portrait to a GIF of Homer Simpson disappearing into a bush and another Twitter user likening the portrait to a picture of Beyoncé…. Obama’s portrait was painted by artist Kehinde Wiley. Obama is shown with flowers in the background, which are meant to symbolize a number of places. The chrysanthemums are the official flower of Chicago, where Obama began his political career. His childhood home of Hawaii is represented by jasmine, and African blue lilies serve as...

Original fight with police by suspect, prior to hospital setting him free. Life is difficult and dangerous enough without us facilitating even more violence by refusing to secure this nation’s borders. Enough already. Click through and read the whole story, it’s a clusterfark at every level, including the police inability to take custody of the maniac in the hospital because hospitals are “sensitive” locations. Via KOMO, HT Weasel Zippers. A Tukwila man accused of stabbing his cousin then dismembering the man last month should have been in the custody of federal immigration agents, according to Kent police. Rosalio Ramos-Ramos, 37, was being sought by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) late last year and was almost turned over, when an apparent...

Great job, Germany, importing Jew-hatred, misogyny and persecution of Christians. They’ve been in a coma, obviously, as they’ve been importing people from a region that is swamped in hatred. This is out of control and has become a problem because of willful ignorance within the government. We’ve known for quite some time, this will not end well. Via Breitbart. Hate crime figures leaked by police in Germany have caused alarm, as they revealed murder, assault, and arson numbering among almost 100 attacks which targeted Christians in 2017. Published by the Funke media group several months before annual crime statistics are due to be officially released, the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) data showed attacks on churches and Christian symbols accounted...

Operation Bribery, er, Constrain ? How about Operation Firing Squad? Via Daily Mail. Terror suspects including jihadis returning from fighting in Syria are to be offered taxpayer-funded homes, counselling and help finding jobs to stop them carrying out attacks in Britain. The top-secret Government strategy, codenamed Operation Constrain, could even allow fanatics to jump to the top of council house waiting lists. Official documents seen by The Mail on Sunday reveal that up to 20,000 extremists previously investigated by MI5 will be targeted with what critics last night described as ‘bribes’ aimed at turning them away from extremism….

The opposite of price gouging. Good for them. Via Reuters/AOL. JetBlue Airways Corp is offering $99 direct flights from every Florida city where it operates, the airline said on Wednesday, as people hurry to leave before powerful Hurricane Irma hits the state. A price cap through Sept. 10 is also in place for all of JetBlue’s Florida connecting flights, a maximum fare of $159 up to the last available seat, the company said. “We want those trying to leave ahead of the hurricane to focus on their safe evacuation rather than worry about the cost of flights,” JetBlue spokesman Doug McGraw said. Flights in the eastern Caribbean through Sept. 7 and in the western Caribbean through Sept. 8 are also...

All courtesy of the Bill Clinton administration idiotically the craven regime. Obama, of course, used the same approach with Iran, guaranteeing a nuclear crisis there as well. Via Circa. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Saturday the second flight test of an intercontinental ballistic missile demonstrated his country can hit the U.S. According to analysts, North Korea’s missiles would be capable of reaching Los Angeles, New York or Chicago. The Korean Central News Agency said Kim expressed “great satisfaction” with the test. The Pentagon confirmed Friday morning that North Korea launched another ballistic missile. “We are assessing and will have more information soon,” said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman. Japanese government spokesperson Yoshihide Suga said the missile...

Expect a NoKo nuke-capable ICBM some time next year. We’ve always been wrong in assessing where these freaks stand. It’s almost as if by design or the preferred position of the swamp. I’m afraid a big reason for that is a refusal to have to admit the problem, something instinctual with politicians, and yet we’re the ones who are the sitting ducks. Politicians manage to arrange escapes from nuclear attack for themselves and their families, but not for yours. N. Korea, just another complete clusterfark left for Trump to fix. As the maniacs who made this possible continue to attack him. Hawaii is attempting to prepare for this disaster, brought to them by the Clintons and their own Favorite Son,...

Wait, didn’t she say, last week, that she was planning to lose herself in some good books, with the “occasional” glass of chardonnay? Or something. Via The Hill. Hillary Clinton wants to play a role in next year’s midterm elections. It’s just not clear yet what that role will be. Clinton has already launched a PAC aimed at helping congressional Democratic candidates in 2018, signaling the former first lady, senator and secretary of State is ready to help her party with fundraising. She also is looking at the House districts she won in last year’s presidential contest against Donald Trump as part of an autopsy of her failed campaign, according to two sources who have spoken to the former secretary...

Jon Ossoff should really be railing against The Russians. Or Obstruction of Justice. Or something. Via Daily Caller. Failed Democratic candidate in the Georgia special election Jon Ossoff decried the rise of money in politics Tuesday before he completed the most expensive congressional race in U.S. history. Democrats raised and spent $23 million in favor of Ossoff’s bid against former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, and a combined $50 million was spent in the race overall. The second most expensive congressional race was between former Reps. Allen West and Patrick Murphy. The two candidates combined spent $29.6 million in the race that ousted West from the lower chamber of Congress. “The role of money in politics is a major...

This disaster foisted upon us by the Democrats and allowed to fester by the Republicans. For seven years it was an experiment in failure, a death-watch with us as its guinea pigs. Now Congress sits and fights as though they had no idea this was coming. In the meantime, Congress kept its waiver, as I’m sure this cancer was meant only for the “little people.” One thing President Trump can do while Congress sucks its thumb is reverse their ObamaCare waiver and force Congress Critters and their staffs onto the menace immediately. The president then must do everything he possibly can to excise this scourge from the country. And I don’t mean re-working it. Via Daily Caller. Knoxville, TN could...

And we wonder why college graduates are living in their parents’ basements as they search for more safe spaces. At this point, with a few exceptions, the academy has devolved into being a factory for unemployable leftist agitators. and it appears you get a pass on actually competing if you were at Obama’s White House and stood next to Hillary. If we’re going to get the US turned around, we have got to get our university system out of the leftist quicksand. Via Washington Times. Stanford University admitted a Muslim teenager who wrote the phrase “#BlackLivesMatter” 100 times in his application essay. Ziad Ahmed, a senior at the Princeton Day School in Princeton, New Jersey, said he was surprised the...

After President Trump golfed with Rand Paul, and Paul’s optimistic comments afterward, this isn’t entirely a surprise, but it certainly is faster than I expected. Repealing is one thing, what we replace it with is another. As I mentioned on Varney Monday morning, President Trump’s approval rating is dropping, but due in great part, I believe, to the fact that he has yet to have any success with Congress. The American people elected him to get things done, and part of that is making Congress get its act together. Having success this week on repealing ObamaCare and getting Gorsuch confirmed will help a great deal. It’s also safe to say even the Republicans understood what a screw-up it was to...

Hey, great job, DNC! Via American Mirror. ….Tom Perez — a member of the government class and most recently Barack Obama’s Labor Secretary — gave a bizarre speech about why we wanted to lead the party. In an apparent attempt to connect with average Americans, Perez said he worked his way through college “on the back of a trash truck picking up golf balls,” while adding, “Should have used a helmet.”…. “I’ve learned that good leaders are great listeners. You will always have my ear and I will always have your back. “Let me repeat that: You will always have your — my — your ear, and I will always have my — I will always your back!” He then...
