C-Span Posts Inaccurate Transcripts of Trump Briefings: Reportby Shifra on April 30, 2020
Why would a news outlet publish inaccurate comments made by President Trump? — asked no one, ever. Via American Thinker. C-SPAN is publishing inaccurate transcripts of President Donald Trump’s remarks during the vitally important national coronavirus task force daily briefings. Yes, really. So Trump is being falsely attacked for what Trump never said (again). The worst of it, lately, is Trump asking questions to scientists. Those questions have been transformed into statements that Trump never made. But as I endeavored to clear up the fog, I was shocked to discover that C-SPAN’s textual transcripts are the source of the confusion. The quotes that Trump-haters are throwing around happen to be accurate reports of the inaccurate C-SPAN transcript…. On April 23,...
ICYMI: WaPo Exposes Biden Campaign For Deceptive Ad Attacking President Trump on Coronavirusby Shifra on March 18, 2020
So shocking that the Democrats would politicize a pandemic and purposely cut out 120 words from President Trump’s speeches to create a totally false political attack video…said no one, ever. Via Free Beacon. A Joe Biden ad received the worst possible rating from the Washington Post fact-checker for attacking President Donald Trump with manipulated video. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee received “Four Pinocchios” for an ad that deceptively edited video of a Trump campaign rally to make it appear that the president called the coronavirus a hoax. In the ad, Trump can be seen saying “coronavirus,” followed immediately by “This is their new hoax.”…. But as the Post noted, the Biden campaign cut out more than 120 words in between...
Germany Releases, Deports Moroccan 9/11 Accompliceby Shifra on October 16, 2018
Fifteen years behind bars for accessory to murdering 2,997 people. Nice going, Germany. NOT. Via NY Post. That’s a real killer smile. A Moroccan man convicted of helping the 9/11 terrorists carry out their plot flashed a huge grin as he flew home a free man on Monday after being released early from his meager sentence in Germany. Mounir el Motassadeq was sentenced to just 15 years behind bars for accessory to murder in 2006, but received credit for time served after his initial arrest in 2001 — and was freed shortly before finishing even that stretch to be deported to his homeland. German courts ruled that he was part of the so-called “Hamburg cell” with ringleader Mohamed Atta and...
‘Social-Justice’ Mob Shuts Down Critically-Acclaimed Play in Montrealby Shifra on July 9, 2018
The so-called SJWs – “Social Justice Warriors” – have zero interest in “justice.” They seek to shut down any opinion or point of view that does not match theirs. We need to start calling them by the more accurate “LFs” – Leftist Fascists. Tammy’s book, The New Thought Police, written in 2001, is more relevant than ever, seventeen years later. Via WSJ. Betty Bonifassi has spent 18 years researching, reworking and performing slave songs. In “SLĀV,” the hit new play on the same topic, she is the lead singer—or was. The Montreal International Jazz Festival canceled “SLĀV” on Wednesday: “We would like to apologize to those who were hurt.” Why the pain? Because Ms. Bonifassi and director Robert Lepage are...
Illegal Alien Who Killed Kate Steinle Sues Feds for ‘Vindictive Prosecution’by Shifra on March 16, 2018
This is outrageous and obscene. If a San Francisco jury could acquit Garcia-Zarate of murder, who knows if they would actually take his lawsuit seriously? Unfortunately, Kate Steinle is not available for comment. Via Breitbart. Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, the illegal alien acquitted last year of murdering 32-year-old Kate Steinle in July 2015, has sued the federal government, demanding that it produce documents “pertaining to vindictive prosecution and collusion” with the state government in its prosecution against him. In November, a San Francisco jury found Garcia-Zarate not guilty of murdering Steinle, agreeing that although he had the gun from which the fatal shot was fired, the discharge could have been accidental. The jury did convict Garcia-Zarate of felony possession of a...
Oakland Café Doubles Down On Refusing to Serve Copsby Shifra on March 13, 2018
Something is very wrong with Oakland. And, as they say, “The fish rots from the head.” Yes, that would be Mayor Libby Schaaf. Via Daily Signal. Owners of a California coffee shop doubled down on their refusal to serve police officers, claiming cops threaten their “physical and emotional safety.” The Hasta Muerte Coffee owners refused service to a Latino police sergeant March 8 and are now defending that decision despite growing outrage, KTVU reported. The shop is a worker-owned collective with a mural criticizing police shootings and the militarization of law enforcement. Oakland’s police union wrote a letter to the owners complaining about the measure. A local city councilman said while he disagrees with the policy, there aren’t any plans...
DOJ Weighs Federal Charges in Kate Steinle Murder Case, After ‘Not Guilty’ Verdictby Shifra on December 1, 2017
The ‘not guilty’ verdict is a stunning miscarriage of justice. Kate Steinle’s murder was an “accident” ? The jury apparently has more compassion for an illegal alien felon than for an innocent U.S. citizen. Shameful. “Build the Wall!” Via Fox News. The Justice Department is considering bringing federal charges against Jose Ines Garcia Zarate after his not guilty verdict in the Kate Steinle murder trial, department officials told Fox News on Friday. A California jury acquitted Zarate of the more serious charges in the case, including murder, involuntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon — only convicting him of being a felon in possession of a firearm. U.S. immigration officials had said they would deport Garcia Zarate – also...
Deserter Bergdahl Gets Dishonorable Discharge, Dodges Prisonby Shifra on November 3, 2017
Soldiers who died searching for Bowe Bergdahl This decision is obscene! “He suffered enough” ? As much as the soldier who is now paralyzed after searching for him? Via NY Post. Confessed deserter and US Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl got a huge break on Friday when a federal judge spared him jail time and instead gave him a dishonorable discharge and a fine of $1,000 a month for the next 10 months. The disgraced soldier, whose disappearance resulted in serious injuries to other military personnel who were searching for him, was also stripped of his rank by the judge, Army Col. Jeffery Nance. Bergdahl, who was held prisoner and tortured by the Taliban for five years after he walked away...
EU Honors Woman Who Hijacked Planes With Palestinian Terror Groupby Shifra on September 27, 2017
This is obscene, but it’s what we’ve come to expect from the EU. After all the horrors of WWII, maybe they could be a bit more sensitive to Jew-hatred and terrorism. Via CNS News.
Obama Fine w Wikileaks When Soldiers at Risk but Outraged When DNC Hacked?by Shifra on January 18, 2017
Agitator-in-Chief, er, “constitutional scholar” Obama, weighed in on Manning in 2011: “We are a national of laws.” This tweet nicely sums it up: The Chelsea Manning deal proves Obama is fine when Wikileaks endangers US soldiers and only outraged when Wikileaks embarrasses Democrats. — THIS JUST IN… (@weknowwhatsbest) January 18, 2017 Via Daily Caller. In 2011, President Barack Obama declared that Army PFC Bradley Manning, who now goes by the name Chelsea, “broke the law” by releasing hundreds of thousands of sensitive or classified U.S. government documents to WikiLeaks. Obama commuted Manning’s sentence Tuesday as one of his last acts as president. Manning was convicted of violations of the Espionage Act, but will now be released in May 2017 instead...
Liberal Nonprofits Plan to Punish the Poor to Spite Donald Trumpby Shifra on January 4, 2017
In the twisted “logic” of the progressive nonprofits, spending more on the poor if the Trump Administration reduces government anti-poverty funding might validate the Administration’s efforts. Really, Libs have no shame. Via NY Post. ….While college students have fled to safe spaces, Hillary Clinton supporters have dyed their hair and dumped their boyfriends and celebrities are plotting their moves to Canada, the leaders of nonprofits and foundations are readying themselves for battle. Literally. Emmett Carson, president of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, compared the Trump administration transition period to the Revolutionary War…. According to the Chronicle, “Some foundation leaders have taken immediate measures, such as freezing discretionary grant-making budgets so they can hold money in reserve in case grantees need...
Feds Threaten Florida Pet Owners With a ‘War on Cats’by Shifra on December 5, 2016
Remember when the US Government would declare war on our enemies, instead of cats? Good times…. Via Daily Signal. An overzealous federal agency is targeting Florida cats in a pest removal operation and it’s becoming a huge problem for pet owners…. In 2014, the Fish and Wildlife Service implemented a pest management plandesigned to trap cats that the agency perceived as a threat to the Key Largo woodrat. The furry targets of this sting operation were accused of trespassing on federal land, which is a woodrat habitat, and doing what cats do best: hunt and kill rats. Instead of focusing only on the large swaths of feral cats that pose the primary threat to the rats’ survival on the island,...
WikiLeaks: How the Left Played Chief Justice Roberts on ObamaCareby Shifra on October 16, 2016
If Hillary wins, we won’t have to worry about any intimidation of the Supreme Court. She will pack the SC with people who will be very happy to do her bidding. Justice Barack Obama, Justice Eric Holder, or Justice Valerie Jarrett, anyone ? Via WSJ. The WikiLeaks email disclosures make fascinating reading about the political calculations of leading progressives, and Chief Justice John Roberts may want to pay particular attention. This week’s leaks show Hillary Clinton ally Neera Tanden laying out a strategy to intimidate the Supreme Court to uphold ObamaCare. Ms. Tanden runs the Center for American Progress, the think tank that is essentially an arm of the Clinton campaign. CAP’s former chief, John Podesta, is now the Clinton...
Prison Inmates Produced Defective Combat Helmets for US Soldiersby Tammy on August 18, 2016
Anyone involved in this, including “Defense Contract Management Agency inspectors” should face criminal charges if all this is proven correct. Via Washington Times. Federal prison inmates used makeshift hatchets and a screw shoved through a piece of wood among other rudimentary tools to manufacture thousands of faulty Kevlar combat helmets designed to protect the lives of U.S. soldiers on the battlefield, according to a highly critical watchdog report that offered new details about the government boondoggle. More than 126,000 helmets manufactured at a Texas prison under a government contract were recalled after inspectors found major defects, including serious ballistic failures, in 2010, according to a report issued Wednesday by the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General. Even though the...
“Homesick” Clock Boy Family Return to US; Promptly Files $10M Federal Lawsuitby Tammy on August 8, 2016
A lawsuit. How surprising. The family moved back to the US in June. The father had lots of nice things to say about the US. He left out the part where he must think the country is a cash cow. Dallas Morning News: Irving Clock Boy’s father sues city, school district, principal for ‘blatant disregard’ of son’s civil rights Nearly a year after Irving police arrested and interrogated him for bringing a homemade clock to school, Ahmed Mohamed said Monday that he still feels the hate. And it hurts. “I get a lot of hate. I got a lot of support in the beginning but it’s the hate that sticks,” said Ahmed, 14. “I get death threats. What did I...
