CNN Downplays Historic WH Peace Signing, Slams ‘Lack of Social Distancing’by Shifra on September 15, 2020
Looks like CNN is suffering from a case of ‘Peace Envy’… Paging Dr. Sigmund Freud 🙂 Via Fox News. CNN appeared to bury the lede by sounding the alarm oh the “large crowd” and “little social distancing” at the White House event commemorating the historic peace deal between Israel, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Bahrain. On Tuesday, President Trump was joined by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and Bahrain Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalif to sign the Abraham Accords, something the president hailed as the “dawn of a new Middle East.” However, CNN’s coverage of the event was less focused on the groundbreaking peace agreement and instead shamed the White House...
Sad Stay-At-Home Story: Rich People *Shocked* At Doing Chores For First Timeby Shifra on April 22, 2020
These people don’t know where to put the trash or if an opened pickle jar goes in the fridge. But why is Martha Stewart quarantined with her housekeeper (and driver and gardener) at her mansion? Isn’t she supposed to be the Queen of DIY? Via NY Post. Kenneth Mark never had much time for domestic duties. The dermatologist, who runs three high-end practices in Soho, the Hamptons and Aspen, Colo., typically spends “north of 60 hours a week” jabbing patients with Botox and fillers. His housekeeper of 20 years keeps his home in order…. Then the coronavirus pandemic swept the city. “It was unfair to ask her to come in,” says Mark, who splits his time between Murray Hill and...
Elizabeth Warren Is A Direct Descendant of Militia ‘Indian Fighter’by Shifra on September 12, 2019
This would never have been relevant, but Liz Warren brought this upon herself with the “I have Native American DNA” narrative. Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. Via Breitbart. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford served in Major William Lauderdale’s Battalion of Tennessee Volunteer Militia from November 1837 to May 1838, a six month time period during which it fought two battles in Florida against the Seminoles….

Flashback: FBI Chief Mueller Didn’t Know Boston Bombers Attended Radical Mosqueby Shifra on July 29, 2019
As you watch the video, keep in mind that Robert Mueller was the head of the FBI in 2013. Let that sink in. Via American Thinker. Robert Mueller, like his close friend James Comey, enjoyed an undeserved reputation for bureaucratic impartiality, integrity, and excellence for many years. Both men seemed to have the skill to bamboozle Republicans with their nominal political affiliation with the Grand Old Party while operating ruthlessly and sometimes corruptly. When Robert Mueller testified before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees last week, he shattered his reputation as a hard-working master of all the details of the operations he supervised. But the clues were always there. Or friends at Americans for Peace and Tolerance emailed a trip...
North Carolina Town Sues Car Dealership For Flying Massive American Flagby Shifra on May 22, 2019
How is the American flag a nuisance? Bravo to Camping World. The city of Statesville? Not so much. Via WSOCTV.com The controversy over a massive American flag is now reaching a new level as the company responsible for flying the flag is rallying community support to fight the City of Statesville, which has reportedly filed a lawsuit to have the flag removed. Camping World posted a message to its Facebook page on Saturday saying the city has filed an injunction against Camping World, fining the company $50 per day going back to Oct. 15, 2018. That totals nearly $11,000. The company said it flies the 40-by-80-foot flag outside of its Gander RV location as a way of paying tribute to...
Greenpeace Co-Founder To Ocasio-Cortez: You’re a ‘Pompous Little Twit’by Shifra on March 3, 2019
“Blathering insanity,” “ignorant twit.” When you’ve lost the co-founder of Greenpeace… Sad! 🙂 Via BizPac Review. Patrick Moore, the co-founder of Greenpeace, blasted Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her epic environmental ignorance and hypocrisy. Moore was reacting to a bombshell story revealing that AOC is a rabid user of gas-guzzling car services like Uber and Lyft. Meanwhile, she tells everyone else that we should take the bus — or the world will end in 12 years…. “Whoops, AOC is a gas-guzzler. If only she realized that the CO2 she is emitting was helping plants grow healthier and increasing crop yields on farms around NYC. Then she could be sane. It seems many people agree that AOC is a bit too...
School Apologizes After Pledge of Allegiance Recited… In Spanishby Shifra on November 28, 2018
Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish…and German? From the Dept. of What were they thinking? Via Washington Times. Administrators at a Virginia high school have apologized for a plan to have the Pledge of Allegiance said in different languages by students. Westfield High School in Fairfax came under fire before Thanksgiving by upset parents when they found out that their children were being asked to recite the Pledge in Spanish. The original plan was to have native speakers of various languages, such as French or German, lead others in the routine. “A school administrator suggested students lead the pledge in Spanish to promote engagement and inclusion,” a statement released to a local Fox affiliate said. “Administrators believed this was...

Aftermath of N. California fire This is what Libs do best: “Virtue-signaling” and misreading normal Americans. Via BizPac Review. Only weeks after thousands of Americans teamed up to try and help actress Alyssa Milano find shelter for her horses as the wildfires in California threatened her home, she chose to show her gratitude by asking the American people to donate their money to help asylum refugees…. You are the kind of person I don’t understand at all. We helped save your horses from a fire that was the worst fire in California history. People died. People have absolutely nothing left. They’re living in tents. They are your fellow Americans and neighbors. Help them. — Marion O'Connor (@Owind1950) November 25, 2018...
SF School Board Replaces Pledge of Allegiance With Maya Angelou Quoteby Shifra on October 11, 2018
Here are some “fab” quotes from Vladimir Lenin, founder of the Russian Communist Party, that the San Fran School Board may want to use in future meetings: A lie told often enough becomes the truth. The goal of socialism is communism. One man with a gun can control 100 without one. You’re welcome. Via Fox News. The San Francisco school board’s new president broke with protocol Tuesday night by deciding to skip the Pledge of Allegiance before a meeting, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. In its place, Steven Cook recited a quote from the poet Maya Angelou: “When you learn, teach. When you get, give.” Cook told The Chronicle he chose not to enforce the pledge because of his disappointment...
IOC: U.S. Women’s Hockey Team Violated Rules With Patriotic Designby Shifra on February 13, 2018
The IOC might ask the women to change their masks to something “more neutral” than an image of a bald eagle and the Statue of Liberty. My suggestion: Maybe a pic of Otto Warmbier dragged off in chains by N. Korean guards. Via Washington Times. Team USA women’s hockey goalies Nicole Hensley and Alex Rigsby are playing in the 2018 Winter Olympics wearing goaltender masks with a patriotic design. It includes an American-themed shield, a bald eagle and an image of the Statue of Liberty. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) says that runs afoul of their rules. Hensley and Rigsbymay be told to change their masks to something more neutral, according to reports. The IOC has guidelines for what athletes...

Neat! Via CBS News. Somewhere over the rainbow, a new world record was in the making last week. Students in Taiwan anxiously watched their clocks and kept their eyes on the skies as they documented the longest-lasting rainbow known to mankind.

Happy 100th Birthday to ‘OMG’by Shifra on September 17, 2017
Kudos to the lexicographers at the Oxford English Dictionary for tracking down the earliest usage of OMG. And no, it’s not the invention of a texting teen. Via WSJ. Let us now put down our smartphones to mark a peculiar anniversary. One hundred years ago, on Sept. 9, 1917, a retired admiral of the British navy fired off a letter to Winston Churchill, the future prime minister. The letter was shockingly prescient in one curious way: the admiral abbreviated “Oh my God!” in a most millennial fashion, as “OMG.”…. In his letter, Lord Fisher complained to the much younger Churchill, then serving as minister of munitions, about Britain’s cautious naval strategy against Germany. In a sarcastic tone, he closed the...
‘Vanity Fair’ 2017 Best Dressed List Omits Melania Trumpby Shifra on September 6, 2017
Michelle Obama made the “best dressed list.” Melania, however, did not. Maybe because Vanity Fair was shocked that Melania…wait for it… wore the same outfit twice! Oh the horror. (Actually, the real horror is some of Michelle Obama’s sartorial choices, which I will not post here. You’re welcome.) Via Daily Caller. Vanity Fair’s 2017 International Best-Dressed List honors celebrities and politicians who stand out as fashion icons of the year, but one usually well-dressed figure is notably absent. Melania Trump, a former model and current first lady of the U.S., did not make the cut, but former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama made the list for the third time. “Heads of state are particularly well represented this...
