Democrat POTUS Candidate Gillibrand: We Need to Hold Israel ‘Accountable’ for Barring Entry to Omar, Tlaib

 I'm old enough to remember when Democrats demanded the USA not be the world's policeman.

Andrew Kugle at the Free Beacon relays the details:
"How do you hold them accountable?" Raddatz asked.

"That's what you do as president, President Trump is unwilling to hold anyone accountable. He's unwilling to stand up to other world leaders. You've seen this with instance of Israel, seen it with China and Russia," Gillibrand said.

"I don't know why Netanyahu would want to deny members of Congress to come to Israel if they expect us to be that never-ending partner and friend," Gillibrand added."
Is Gillibrand obtuse? It's because they're Jew-hating bigots who publicly state that Israel has no right to exist, and endorse economic sanctions in an effort to economically cripple that tiny nation. Where's the 'never-ending partner and friend' in that toxic mix?

Mock Trump Assassination Held at Democrat Fundraiser, State Senator Apologizes

 Pictures posted online show supporters of Illinois State Senator Martin Sandoval(D) shooting a fake rifle at a fake President Trump.

“Every Democrat should be asked if they support or disavow this.”

Zachary Stieber at The Epoch Times reports:
"Sen. Martin Sandoval was seen at the fundraiser on Aug. 16, at which pictures showed at least one man pointing a fake gun at another person wearing a mask of the president.

As the man pointed the gun, the person dressed as Trump held two hands to their heart as if fatally wounded.

Quote, Unquote

"This past Saturday saw violent attacks on pro-American peaceful demonstrators by the black-is-the-new-brown-shirt terrorist organization Antifa in Portland. Although the Portland Police at least appeared to fake protecting the protestors, everything from mace and milkshakes to some people reportedly attacked with hammers was used in the attempt to draw blood.

There is no equivalency. This is completely one-sided. And yet you have double-talking crackpots like this Debra Haaland from New Mexico defending the goons, calling them “peaceful” and praising them for “safeguarding their city.” Dan Crenshaw notes the irony of the real anti-fascist anti-totalitarian protesters in Hong Kong waving the American flag while these demented fiends burn it at every opportunity." - J.J. Sefton, The Morning Report 8-19-19

Mark Halperin’s Accusers Lash Out Over His New Book: ‘Appalling and So Upsetting’

Mary Chastain at Legal Insurrection writes:
"Former political journalist Mark Halperin fell from grace in 2017 after numerous women accused him of sexual misconduct and harassment.

Politico reported this weekend that Halperin has a new book coming out soon about how to beat President Donald Trump. The women who accused him of misconduct not only lashed out at the publishing company, but the Democratic strategists who helped him."
Odd. But in light of a ‘wax my genitals’ transgendered bully forcing immigrant women out of business in Canada, while ‘diddle little girls on my private island’ Epstein is predictably murdered in prison as the stool pigeon who knew too much, Halprin’s ‘sexual misconduct’ with grown women seems rather tame.

We are adrift…

A calm day on the Rio Grande brings relief to besieged Border Patrol agents

The buried lede is "Illegal Immigrant Flood Dries Up as Mexican Military Enforces Trump's 'First Nation' Asylum Policy at Southern Border"

That policy requires asylum applicants to seek permanent refuge in the first country they arrive in after fleeing their home countries. Any map of Central America will tell you it ain't the USA. And although Mexico is loathe to admit it, Trump also enlisted Mexican President Obrador's help in seizing bank accounts of those financing the illegal migrant caravans snaking up the Sierra Madre to the US southern border.
by Anna Giaritelli at the Washington Examiner:
"Today, not a single person can be found in a 90-minute search of the area. It’s quiet except for the sound of the occasional bird chirp.

The TV weatherman forecast the heat index for 111 degrees, Cabrera says, sitting inside his air-conditioned personal vehicle. He says the extreme heat is one of the two reasons he believes no one is crossing right now at 3:30 p.m. local time.

“This time of year, if [families and children] don’t cross in the dark, they’re gonna cross either really early in the morning or late in the afternoon when the sun starts to go down,” Cabrera says. “But the weather in and of itself is not going to stop it.”

Cabrera explains the Mexican government’s deployment of military to the other side of the border from the Rio Grande Valley is why apprehensions were down in the first two weeks in August. Border Patrol would not share data to back up his statement.

Sunday Blog Shout Out

 The People's Cube. It's satirical website created Oleg Atbashian, an American writer and graphic artist. Rush Limbaugh described the website as “a Stalinist version of The Onion.”

Atbashian was born in June, 1960, in Cherkassy, Ukraine, which was then part of the totalitarian Soviet Union. His writings present a view of America and the world through the prism of his Soviet experience. Atbashian is the author of 'Shakedown Socialism.'

Operation Petticoat (1959) starring Cary Grant, Tony Curtis, Joan O'Brien, Dina Merrill, Gavin MacLeod, Marion Ross, Arthur O'Connell, Dick Sargent.

Director Blake Edwards delivered an above average service comedy with this movie made during the waning, yet still virile, years of the big studio system in Hollywood. The cast and crew read like a who's who of TV and movie household names in America.

"In confusion, there is profit."

Petticoat starts off slow, but is soon up to speed. Three days after Pearl Harbor (Dec. 7, 1941), the submarine 'Sea Tiger' is damaged during an enemy air raid in the Philippines. Movie critic Leonard Maltin gives it his TCM best: "Hilarious comedy about submarine captain Grant who's determined to make his injured ship seaworthy again, and con artist Curtis who wheels and deals to reach that goal. Some truly memorable gags; Grant and Curtis are a dynamite team in this happy film. Remade for TV in 1977."

Rep. Rashida Tlaib(D) Hates Jews more than She Loves Grandmama

Ed Morrissey at Hotair
is far more polite than Moi, so that's not the actual headline to his post, but as far as I'm concerned, it should be.
"Looks like Israel got its point across. After getting shut out of her planned visit with Ilhan Omar(D) to work with a pro-BDS group in the Palestinian territories, Rashida Tlaib lashed out publicly over the snub.

Privately, however, Tlaib asked for humanitarian entry and promised not to promote BDS on her visit with family. Israel approved the request earlier today on that condition:.."
Can you spell 'Taqiyya?' Rep. Rashida Tlaib quickly made it obvious that her Grandmama was just a ruse, and soon chucked her under the bus in favor of  Rashida's persistent Jew hate - which she would rather spew than visit her own Grandmama.

New Witness Claims He Saw CNN's Don Lemon Sexually Assault Man in Hamptons

Caleb Ecarma at Media-ite brings us the disgusting details:
"During an interview with Fox News on Friday, the self-purported witness, George Gounelas, said that Lemon’s accuser, Dustin Hice, was his subordinate working at a Hamptons bar when the assault is alleged to have occurred. Gounelas, who is named in the lawsuit as a witness, explained that on the night of the encounter, the two were getting post-work drinks at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern when they spotted Lemon and offered to buy him a drink.

When Lemon declined their offer, Gounelas said the two walked away — only to have the pundit come back to them later:
(Lemon allegedly said), "So you like me? Is that why you’re bothering me?’”
Gounelas claims Hice replied by saying they “just wanted to say what’s up,” which allegedly led Lemon — who he accused of appearing “pretty drunk” — to say something “along the lines of, ‘Do you like me? Is that why you’re bothering me, because you wanna f— me?’”

Man Has No Regrets for Panic Caused by Strolling Through Walmart with Rifle, 100 Rounds of Ammo

The background on this peacefully concluded incident that happened 8 days ago can be found here. 

The Southeast Missourian relays today's AP story about Mr. 'No Regrets':
"Andreychenko, who is free on bond and facing a felony charge of making a terrorist threat, told KYTV he never intended to hurt anyone and was surprised by the reaction.

"It was foolish, I didn't give it thought. It was so innocent that I didn't even think this would happen," he said.

Andreychenko said he talked to a Walmart manager before he arrived at the store and was told he was allowed to openly carry a weapon in the store.

Since January 2017, Missouri has not required a permit to openly or conceal carry a firearm for those 19 years or older.

Rare Photo: Young Donald Trump Cheers Start of WWI in Munich, 1914

The photo of the future POTUS in Odeonplatz has been used countless times in newspapers, Hitler biographies and school books. In a rare tweet from 1929, Mike Godwin predicted this.

Sure, it was 105 years ago. Yes, Trump doesn't have black hair or the toothbrush mustache anymore, but I'm constantly reminded that is young Donald in Munich, 1914, because Chris Cuomo insists everyone call Trump, 'Hitler.' Heck, everyone insists Chris be called 'Fredo.' Si, Godfather.

Touch Screen Fail. Navy Reverts to Physical Throttles

I thought it was obvious: All drivers need a 'feel' for their vehicles - on land or water.

"The decision comes after two investigations determined that the sailors who pilot destroyers did not fully understand how the touchscreen-driven integrated bridge and navigation system worked.

The investigations — by the US Fleet Forces Command and the National Transportation Safety Board — found that flawed systems, and their faulty use by Navy watch standers, were partly responsible for a 2017 collision between the destroyer USS John McCain and a container ship that killed 10 sailors.

Reverting the touchscreen systems back to physical throttles will take 18 to 24 months, according to US Naval Institute News.

Equality Minister of France Outs Herself as 'Sapiosexual'

Not that there's anything wrong with it. 

"We sapiosexuals are sexually attracted to highly intelligent people, regardless of looks."  The term was apparently coined in 1998, “sapiens” being the Latin word for “wise”.

So intelligence is not equal? Liberte, egalite, fraternite!

Hold on, slick. What's the term for an 'equality minister' who expressly embraces, to the point of sexual attraction, the explicit inequality of highly intelligent VS not very intelligent?

That's right. It's a scam. Equality as defined by Leftists is a greedy fricken SCAM for power & control, systemically entrenched inside government. For the people, of course.

Man with Assault Rifle Killed by Police in Shootout Near The Legends in KCK

This reads like a classic case of  SBC - 'suicide by cop.' And since the KC Star doesn't highlight the man's race or ethnicity, it's a safe bet the cops didn't shoot a Black man.

Read all about it:
“He said ‘I just murdered my wife, I’m heavily armed and very dangerous,’ and he said ‘I’m going to the Legends you better call the police,’” Honeycutt said. The man, he said, then ran back outside and drove out of the parking lot.

...Police found the man just south of the Village West Parkway and State Avenue intersection, said Westbrook, the police spokesman.

When officers made contact with the man, Westbrook said, the man fired at them with an assault rifle. The man allegedly fired five to six times, Westbrook said, and the officers fired back. No officers or bystanders were injured."

Frank Lloyd Wright House in Kansas City up for Auction

Eric Adler at the KC Star
has some details:
"The starting bid for Kansas City’s Sondern-Adler house — designed in 1939 by Frank Lloyd Wright, among the most influential American architects of the 20th century — could begin at a price as low as $400,000.

The home, at 3600 Belleview Ave., is tucked at the end of a winding drive beneath towering fir and maple trees in the historic Roanoke neighborhood. Having gone unsold on the open market for 11 months at an asking price of $1.65 million, the 3,000-square foot house was scheduled to go up for auction at 2 p.m Monday."
Update: It sold.

Parents Outraged When Govt. School Teacher Hands Out 'Gender Identity Graphic' to Middle School Students on First School Day

The. First. Day. Because it's all about me, me, me, and what I call my winky!

I yearn for the good ol' days when the gender benders at least tried to maintain the pretense of "How will my gay wedding affect your life?" But now that it's twice upon a time, thank Beelzebub we're not forced to subsidize any of that religious indoctrination in government schools.

So, will this chicken-hawk trolling in this target rich environment for his next victim be fired? Of course not, says District Superintendent Terry Metzger: “The principal and I have spoken with the teacher about why we believe this was a poor decision. Any discipline is a private matter between the district and employee.”

“Hands up, don’t shoot” never happened. Somebody tell the Democrats running for president.

That's what Sharyl Attkisson over at The Hill declares in a recent Op/Ed.

I respond, "Why? Facts don't matter to Leftists; only their lies which further their narrative of ever more government power."

It really is that simple.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren(D) Calls Obama's AG Eric Holder a Liar.

In a callous, irresponsible tweet over the weekend, the Democrat presidential candidate dredged up the libelous, racist lie that unarmed, 18 y.o. Michael Brown was murdered by Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson, five years ago this month.

On March 4, 2015, the Justice Department published an 86 page report detailing their investigation and conclusion about the incident: Justice Department clears Darren Wilson in Michael Brown killing.
The report also stated "that physical evidence and “credible” witnesses supported Wilson’s version of an event that drew international attention and triggered repeated protests which included looting and arson in Ferguson, Dellwood, St. Louis and elsewhere."
“Michael Brown’s death, though a tragedy, did not involve prosecutable conduct on the part of Officer Wilson,” Attorney General Eric Holder said at a news conference. “The report we have issued and the steps we have taken are only the beginning of a necessarily resource-intensive and inclusive process to promote reconciliation, to reduce and eliminate bias and to bridge gaps and build understanding,” Holder added."
Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren just called him a liar. Not that anyone in the MSM will care, or report.

Everything You Need to Know About the Convenient Suicide of Jeffrey Epstein

"Dead men tell no tales."

(Light blue lettering scrawled on sidewalk outside Epstein's $77million Upper East side townhouse)

And next weekend, barely anyone will remember his name.

Two weekends ago, the world was aghast with gnashing teeth and frenzied finger pointing in the aftermath of 2 horrific mass slaughters in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. The 'ban all guns' vs 'thoughts n prayers' raged across media, and in Congress. Nothing got resolved, there are still funerals to attend, but the news cycle moves at light speed.

Over the weekend, #ClintonBodyCount vs. #TrumpBodyCount raged on Twitter in the aftermath of the convenient suicide of Jeffry Epstein, the well-connected billionaire, convicted sex offender, and alleged sex trafficker of under-age girls to the wealthy and famous in this world. Twitter quickly de-trended the #hashtag wars, and by Saturday evening the wealthy and famous on Epstein's speed dial all breathed a sigh of relief.

And no one is talking about the 3rd world sh!thole called 'Baltimore.'

Sunday Cinema

Open Range (2003) starring Robert Duvall, Kevin Costner, Annette Bening, and introducing Diego Luna, with a fond farewell to Michael Jeter.

Imdb does this movie a great dis-service with their paltry description: "A former gunslinger is forced to take up arms again when he and his cattle crew are threatened by a corrupt lawman."

It is far more than that. Open Range is based upon author Lauran Paine's 1990 romantic western novel 'The Open Range Men.' Yes, ladies, 'romantic western.' It has a most mesmerizing romance between the Bening and Costner characters woven throughout the story. It also has a critically acclaimed climactic shootout, masterfully staged with the shock and suddenness of a real-life, running gun battle. It's a tour de force, imho, and one of the finest examples of the classic American western movie - the likes of which will probably never be produced again. Why this film didn't win an Academy Award for Best Screenplay, Best Actor, or Best Cinematography is beyond me.
"Sounds like you got it all worked out."

"Yeah, except the part where we don't get killed."
Screen play by Craig Storper. Directed by Kevin Costner. Runtime: 139 minutes (nevermind what the youtube says)

Hebrews 4

"Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said:

“So I swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest,’ ”

although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”; and again in this place: “They shall not enter My rest.”

Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience, again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts.”

For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day. There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.
