Tell Me More About How America Oppresses You

Well, the attention whore finally got what he wanted.  Former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick, will see items related to his national anthem protest placed in an exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History.
The NMAAH has nearly 40,000 items in its collection but not one damn thing to honor such luminary blacks as George Washington Carver, Thurgood Marshall, Satchel Paige, Willie Mays, Magic Johnson, Condoleezza Rice, Thomas Sowell or Clarence Thomas.
Putting Kaepernick’s game-worn jersey, shoes and a picture donated by Harry Edwards in an exhibit would be an utter disgrace.  The museum defends its decision by replying, “The collection is in line with the museum’s larger collecting efforts to document the varied areas of society that have been impacted by the Black Lives Matter movement.”
Why not include his “cops-as-pigs” socks and his Castro T-shirt?
I have a suggestion for a highly appropriate item to be made part of the exhibit:  the “Special Flammable Colin Kaepernick jersey”.
He described the American flag as “just a piece of cloth.”
As of this writing, the ungrateful POS hasn’t signed with any team for the 2017 season.  He has had an incredibly inconsistent career.  He faded in the seasons leading up to his protests winning just three games in his last 19 starts.  The 49ers finished in last place for the second season in a row.
The NAACP and members of the NYPD are threatening a nationwide boycott meant to “send a message” to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
The moment this douchebag began refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem and other jock-sniffing courtiers began to join him I boycotted the NFL.  Am I now supposed to watch the games because the NAACP and the NYPD have called for a boycott? Nah. I don’t think so.
The NFL needs to grow a pair.  Kaepernick and all the thugs, wife-beaters, rapists and shoplifters throughout the NFL are detested by fans.
Goodell has a tough circle to square. This has festered for far too long.

I Won't Be Worried Unless I See A Bunch Of Mayans Hanging Around

I read an article in The Daily Mail that evidently was written by some social justice warrior living somewhere in the Pacific Northwest that had me scratching my head.
“While a total solar eclipse isn't rare, this particular one on August 21 has an uncommon coast-to-coast path across the country and is slated to inspire a new age of thinking among youth called ‘Generation Eclipse’. Totality is said to be transformative as people are said to emote when exposed to the cosmos.”
The writer asserts this celestial phenomenon could help “unify the country.”
“When was the last time we really had a big national shared event that wasn't a tragedy?” he wonders going on to interject, “Awe-inspiring sights encourage empathy and generosity and group cohesion…and total eclipses always do that.”
His theory for this cohesion:  Oregon and Illinois are the only states that fall along the totality path to have voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Horse pucky!
There have been 26 eclipses (total, annular, hybrid and partial) during the 20 and 21st centuries. There will be eight more between 2023 and 2048.
Before our technological age solar eclipses were met with anxiety and dread as an unwelcome disruption to the natural order of things.
Maybe I’ve become jaded having experienced an eclipse on more than one occasion in my lifetime. What’s the big deal? Sunset happens every day.
The ancient Greeks believed eclipses occurred when the gods were angry with humans and the Babylonians believed it signified the death of a ruler. The Vikings believed a hungry wolf was feasting on the sun.  I won’t be worried unless I see a bunch of Mayans hanging around.

Brian Williams Shared A Cigar With This Guy

Our country is currently being besieged by protesters and counter-protesters who feel entitled to define who we memorialize in America following the recent violence in Charlottesville over a Confederate statue.
I saw a meme the other day intended to demonstrate to those protesting who were never slaves and those who did not fight in the Civil War how unconvincing their angst over stone and metal is.  The meme depicts a psychiatrist from South Park, the adult animated sitcom, instructing his patient to “show me on this doll where the Confederate statue hurt you.”
On the subject of offensive statues, one in particular, has come under scrutiny from the woman who was raped in 1978 by then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton.  Juanita Broaddrick wants to see a likeness of Bubba located in Rapid City, SD destroyed.  She can certainly point out where Bubba's statue hurt her.
“I would like to personally use a sledgehammer on it, with the help of Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones,” she said. Willey and Jones, of course, are two other women who have accused President Clinton of sexual misconduct.
“I don’t think it would be in their best interest (to acknowledge them), even though they know Bill Clinton is abhorrent and morally deficient, to say the least,” she tells The American Mirror.
She declined to invite feminist groups to help her. “They have ignored me in the past and it would not be worth the effort. They have too many strong political ties to the Clintons.” 
The National Organization for Women threw the Clinton accusers overboard.

He’s Going To Go Medieval On Their Ass

The quake you felt Friday afternoon came on the heels of the White House announcement that Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was leaving the Trump Administration.
Pundits were quibbling over whether Bannon resigned or was fired.  The question of tantamount importance is with whom will Bannon go to war now that he has been “unshackled.”
Writing at Daily Wire Ben Shapiro pointed to something he said one year ago:  “Bannon understands that in the game of thrones, you win or die; he doesn’t intend to die.” Now that he’s been beheaded by Trump, look for him to try to become the Night King, leaving destruction in his wake.
At 10:18 AM, Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor at Breitbart Media, tweeted the hashtag #WAR.
In his first public remarks since his ouster, Bannon told Joshua Green, Senior National Correspondent at Bloomberg and author of “Devil's Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency”, he will be “going to war” for Trump, warning that he will continue to press the populist cause against the political and corporate establishment. “If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up:  I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents—on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America.” 
Gabriel Sherman, Special Correspondent for Vanity Fair and NBC/MSNBC contributor was evidently so excited this villain was gone he tweeted: “Bannon friend says Breitbart ramping up for war against Trump.  “It is now a Democrat White House,” source says. [emphasis mine]
David Bossie, a long-time Republican operative, former deputy campaign manager for the Trump campaign and Chairman of conservative advocacy group Citizens United appeared on Fox News Special Report to allay any fears Bannon would turn on Trump.

Mean Tweets: CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Edition

Following the aftermath of Thursday’s terror attack, CNN’s Wolf Bullshitter Blitzer said there will be questions about whether “if what happened in Barcelona was at all a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville,” after it was reported that a large van ran into pedestrians leaving several dead and many injured.  “Even though there may be different characters, different political ambitions. They used the same killing device, a vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group of pedestrians.”
Did CNN forget the six attacks involving vehicles plowing through pedestrians in Europe over the past year?  Of course not.  It was just another good, strong whiff of hospital-tested, clinically-proven bullshit.

Behold, Another Soft-Skulled Moonbat

“Black people who were never slaves are fighting white people who were never Nazis over a confederate statue erected by Democrats because Democrats can’t stand their own history anymore...yet somehow, it’s Trump’s fault.”
Via St. Louis Post-Dispatch─Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal posted, ‘I hope Trump is assassinated” on Facebook.  She quickly deleted it but not before her intemperate decision caused the Secret Service to investigate her threat.
Secret Service spokeswoman Catherine Milhoan says all threats made against the president, vice president and other protected persons are investigated, whether the threats are direct, implied or made in passing.
Seems the soft-skulled moonbat is facing a barrage of flak from members of her own party:
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said, "I condemn it. It's outrageous. And she should resign.”
Rep. William Lacy Clay, (D-MO) exclaimed, "Calling for the assassination of the President is a federal crime…She is an embarrassment to our state. She should resign immediately.”
NOTE: It was Clay who hung the controversial “cops as pigs” painting in the Cannon Building of the Capitol Complex in January of this year that was taken down three times and rehung by him.  The Congressional Black Caucus defended the painting as free speech.
The painting showed cops as pigs pointing guns at protesters in Ferguson following the shooting death of Michael Brown in 2014.
Missouri Democratic Party Chair Stephen Webber stated, "The Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President. I believe she should resign.”
Republican Gov. Eric Greitens' office said late Thursday afternoon that a statement from him is forthcoming.
Chappelle-Nadal acknowledged she wrote the offending line but added, "I didn't mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated. Things have got to change.  It was in response to the concerns that I am hearing from residents of St. Louis. I have deleted it, and it should have been deleted, but there is something way more important that we should be talking about.  I am not resigning.  What I said was wrong, but I am not going to stop talking about what led to that, which is the frustration and anger that many people across America are feeling right now."
Chappelle-Nadal said her comment stemmed from frustration over the events in Charlottesville over the weekend, in which a white supremacist protester allegedly rammed his car into a group of counter-protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman.
"There are people who are afraid of white supremacists" in the aftermath of Charlottesville, she said. "There are people who are having nightmares. there are people who are afraid of going out in the streets. It's worse than even Ferguson."
There’s good news though.  Having joined the Missouri State Senate in 2010, she will be ousted from office in 2019 due to term limits.

The Greatest Degeneration Vs The Greatest Generation

Pictured:  World War II veteran Donald Napier views a wreath near the European Campaign section of the World War II Memorial with Photoshopped™ image of Antifa extremist

Let me apologize up front if I ramble a bit on a subject so abhorrent to me.

Following President Trump’s press conference at Trump Tower on Tuesday intended to inform the media about the President’s infrastructure executive order, reporters began to pepper him with combative, hysterical questions:

Do you think that what you call the alt-left is the same as neo-Nazis?

Does the statue of Robert E. Lee stay up?

Are you against the Confederacy?

How concerned are you about race relations in America and do you think things have gotten worse or better since you took office?

Mr. President, are you putting what you are calling the alt-left and white supremacists on the same moral plane?
You said there was hatred, there was violence on both sides?
The neo-Nazis started this thing. They showed up in Charlottesville to protest —
What do you think needs to be done to overcome the racial divides in this country?
Mr. Trump made the mistake of claiming, “there is blame on both sides.”  Some in the media declared his statement was “offering aid and comfort to racists and extremists.”
As Daniel Payne so succinctly said, “We are lurching from one shrieking, insane media episode to the next.  And it is wearing on all of us, and weakening the bonds of fellowship between common Americans.”
Two journos went a step further equating Antifa, radical left-wing thugs and self-described anarchists who heave urine and feces-filled balloons, attack the defenseless and attack women with Americans belonging to the Greatest Generation who stormed the beaches of Normandy to defeat the evil menace of Nazism.
The only conclusion one can logically arrive at is the press poodles are resistant to admitting Antifa is violent because they support it.
Daniel Greenfield noted, “Extremists want to eliminate the consensus of civil society. They want to destroy the idea that there’s any solution except violence through confrontations that show the helplessness of civil society.”
On Fox’s noonday program, Outnumbered co-host Melissa Francis, broke down in tears over her fear of honestly discussing the chaos in Charlottesville.  “I am so uncomfortable having this conversation.  I know what’s in my heart and I know that I don’t think anyone is different, better or worse based on the color of their skin,” Francis said, wiping away tears. “But I feel like there is nothing any of us can say right now without being judged.”
Francis choked up responding to comments by Fox’s Juan Williams and Marie Harf suggesting that Trump was defending Nazis and KKK members when he said counter-protestors shared blame for the fighting.
Progressive liberal protesters are increasingly clamoring for the removal of statues and monuments honoring Confederate soldiers and leaders.  What’s next?  The Jefferson Memorial?  The Washington Monument?  The Christ The Redeemer statue in Rio De Janiero?  Bank ATMs which dispense dollar bills honoring a slave owner?
In George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984,” a quote from one of Orwell’s characters warns how “every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered.  And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute.  History has stopped.”

Is Fox Down on its "Heels"?

Another way to put that is, "Why does Fox suffer fools so gladly?"

According to Wikipedia:

(Spoiler alert! Pro wrestling may be...less than, shall we say, purely...random?)

Professional wrestling... is a form of performance art which combines athletics with theatrical performance...The matches have predetermined outcomes to heighten entertainment value...
Say it ain't so!!! And further, according to the Oracle of Wiki, wrestlers are divided unto two groups: The "Babyfaces" or "Faces" (the good guys) whom the audience is supposed to cheer and the "Heels" (bad guys), who are the "villains", as it were, whom the audience is supposed to boo and jeer.
Mission accomplished!

I started to notice the similarities between pro wrestling and Fox News after Fox hired Marie Harf. Marie was a State Department Spokesperson for the Obama administration, where she was, frankly, kind of an airhead, and said some incredibly stupid things. In other words,  a complete joke.

But, a joke with blonde hair, a nice smile and now, a job on Fox News, to be a 'Heel' for the audience to jeer, along with fellow heels, Juan Williams, Geraldo Rivera, Richard Fowler and others.

Why does Fox tolerate liberals who, if brains were dynamite, couldn't blow their own noses? Aside from being "Fair and balanced", I believe it's performance art. Liberal contortionists  jump through hoops of illogical rhetoric, to act as foils, and receive the occasional body slam from conservatives, primarily for the sake of ratings.

Fox's Heels are typically pleasant, friendly people who more often than not, are merely regurgitating the talking points of the Left, whose attempts at original thought more closely resemble a dumpster fire.

It's a lot easier to tolerate Fox News since I caught onto the act. The Heels don't have to be all that insightful or bright to bring in an audience.

Don't take them too seriously, and be sure to bring the popcorn!

How About A Nice Game Of Chess?

According to a published report from The Washington Post, North Korean leader Kim Fatty The Third appeared to take a step back from the brink of nuclear war Tuesday, when DPRK state media reported that he would “watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees.”
This came just hours after the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, told South Korean leaders Monday that the United States was ready to use the “full range” of its military capabilities to deal with North Korea.
I guess this means we can all look up in the sky on August 21st and see the solar eclipse without missiles passing in front of the sun at the same time.
