  1. John David Rice-Cameron, the Stanford College Republicans president, is pressing charges against a liberal student who allegedly “hit him” and “forcefully pushed him back” during a pro-Brett Kavanaugh event Tuesday afternoon.

    Rice-Cameron is the son of controversial Obama administration official Susan Rice, who is rumored to be considering a run against Susan Collins, R-Maine, following her support in the Senate for confirmation of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. But on the other side of the aisle on the Left Coast, her son is busy working to “Make Stanford Great Again” as an outspoken supporter of President Trump and conservative values.

    1. LOL!!! I guess way lefty liberal principles don’t last a generation. Funny, I thought minorities could never be conservatives or vote GOP? Hmmm…..Maybe Kanye is onto something. 😀

  2. A CNN panel hosted by anchor Don Lemon took turns lacing into Kanye West on Tuesday evening, joking that his embrace of President Donald Trump has caused him to be tokenized. Several referred to him using the term “negro.”

    “He’s an attention whore, like the president. He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson. He’s the token negro of the Trump administration,” said CNN contributor Tara Setmeyer.

    “This is ridiculous and no one should be taking Kanye West seriously. He clearly has issues. He’s already been hospitalized,” she continued. “Not to trivialize mental health issues, [but] obviously Kanye has taken a turn in a very strange way.”

    Another guest, former Congressman Bakari Sellers, also hit Kanye using much of the same language.

    “Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” said Sellers. “And we have this now and now Donald Trump is going to use it and pervert and he’s going to have someone who can stand with him and take pictures.”

    Throughout the bit, Lemon laughed along and joked about the expression of another panelist, CNN contributor Scott Jennings, who appeared visibly uncomfortable.

    “I’m just looking at Scott’s face,” said Lemon barely getting the words out. “Scott’s like, ‘Wow, OK.’”

    Reps for West and CNN did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

    It’s not the first time a CNN segment has floated mental illness as an explanation for Kanye’s behavior. During a “New Day’ episode last week, co-host Alisyn Camerota bluntly suggested Kanye might not be all there.

        1. You’re right. They don’t. To see any person of color referring to another person of color as a negro really is painful to watch. They have no shame.

    1. eric holder said to kick people . hillClinton said no civility to the other side .

      We have the ugliest of the underbelly of the left all out in the open now

  3. In those days I, Daniel, was mourning for three weeks. 3I ate no delicacies, no meat or wine entered my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, for the full three weeks. 4On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river (that is, the Tigris) 5I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, a man clothed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. 6His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a multitude. 7And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision, but a great trembling fell upon them, and they fled to hide themselves. 8So I was left alone and saw this great vision, and no strength was left in me. My radiant appearance was fearfully changed,b and I retained no strength. 9Then I heard the sound of his words, and as I heard the sound of his words, I fell on my face in deep sleep with my face to the ground.

    10And behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. 11And he said to me, “O Daniel, man greatly loved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for now I have been sent to you.” And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. 12Then he said to me, “Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and humbled yourself before your God, your words have been heard, and I have come because of your words.

          1. Hell yeah it bugs me seeing people of color call other people of color negroes. I’m sorry, I guess I live in the year 2018, not 1958.

          2. Well it bugs me an immoral man who insults POWs, bangs and pays off porn stars, the lies about is the President. I find the President to often act in ways that are disgusting. You don’t………..we differ. That is allowed. :)

          3. Pretty immature response. If he bugs you, then these purveyors of decency should get the same response from you. But they don’t.

            Sad. :(
            Racist words like negro should never be used.

          4. Not immature……..honest. I think this is all Kanye Hype. He lives on this media outrage. I am not playing.

      1. It’s how open they are now, so empowered, so ‘liberated’ to be who they’ve always been that’s so striking for me. No more hiding it as to who they are, what they represent, what they believe and how they truly see people that they say they care about and say they represent.

        No more stealth, no more hiding it in plain view as was exhibited throughout the Obama years – The man who paved the way for it all with his flowery rhetoric that really didn’t hide that much for those paying attention –

        Actions speak louder than words. Even though many times his words were just as adequate as his actions when combined with each other.

        And now, the word mob has also banned to help usher it all in.

        Call it ‘legitimate’ protests just like the murderous thug Che that they’ve always put on a pedestal – Freedom fighters, that’s what they are. Freedom to do what anything want to do ‘against’ others. In other words, think Obama’s Organizing ‘AGAINST’ America – The coordinate hub for it all that can be dispatched at moment’s notice anywhere in this Country. Yes, they’ve even bragged about it.

        Like what you see America?

          1. For the record, and for some 100th time I imagine. Politico magazine who interviewed the group. And boy did they ever ‘talk feely’ in that interview, right down to a ‘former’ President getting ‘DAILY’ briefings from the very group he created as a priority as President.

            Now, the ‘coordinate, orchestrative’ hub for it all. Their own words, their own brags. All Progressive ‘mobs’ go through them now – The ‘coordinate hub’ for it all. Townhalls, Supreme Court, Congress, you name it. Anything and anyone who gets in the way of the ‘Progressive Steamroller’ that Obama launched as part of his Presidency in order build the foundation of his Fundamental Transformation.

            And we’re still paying of it as a Country, 10 years later…

            100’s, if not 1000’s, tens of 1,000’s of groups and Activist Organizations. All of them able to be dispatched at a ‘moment’s notice’ anywhere in this Country. Their own admission as if it was a good thing, a ‘righteous’ thing. You tell me, is it? And that a former President is involved with it all? Even to the point of getting daily briefings?

          2. Your rant does not answer my question………..who precisely are the “they” you refer to?

        1. You’ll never hold Obama to account. Who he is, what’s he done, what he continues to do in the shadows. What’s new?

          You don’t create an organization like he did as your ‘first priority’ as President right off the bat in 2009 to coordinate every activist organization in this Country and dispatch them anywhere in this Country moment’s notice, just for fun, unless you have an intention to use them. Nor do you get ‘daily’ briefings from them as a former President unless you’re part of the overall command and control structure.
          Keep talking to the hand. As Holder would dsay, keep kicking them –

          1. Obama is not the President. I am concerned with the actions of the man in office NOW, not years ago. I will leave that obsession in your hands. I get it…………you have a need for boogeymen.

          2. Yeah, he’s the Vlad of Progressives these days. But look over here, not there. Keep talking to the hand Bud, and eventually, something a little more dangerous for all of us.

      1. You should care about the other N word being acceptable suddenly. This is not about Kanye, this is about words people are using and laughing about.

        1. I think it is all hype………Kanye does this stuff to get publicity. It is right along the Kanye, Kardassian media whore motif they have. Sorry I am not as outraged as you………but I am not. I get you are. You are allowed to be. I am not stopping you from being pissed off. :)

          1. Please……….spare me. Kanye does this sort of stuff to bring about media buzz and folks talking about him. Fine if you want to……….but lay off the holier than thou crap. It is not applicable.

            If you want to jump into Kanye hype……knock yourself out.

          2. This is not about Kanye.

            Look, I get it. You refuse to call out the usage of the word negro. You’re complicit at this point. You don’t care it’s being used simply because it’s being used against him. That’s really sad and beneath you. Well at least I thought it would be.

            Well I guess I care more about not glorifying the use of a racist words. :(

  4. It is all part of the deep state………the coup…………the resistance……….and the flying spaghetti monster. All conversing at this one moment. :)

    1. So, you don’t think he should testify? And you base that on? Anything but the truth? Sure seems like it. Can’t believe you took an oath to this Country, because you sure don’t act like it. Maybe Russia or any other Third World Country you wish to model us after, but not here. That’s for sure. You’ve finally convinced me, you are ANTIFA.

      1. I think I will let those folks in DC work out their schedules, without any assistance from me, or the perpetually pissed off Fox viewership. I am perfectly fine, awaiting the Mueller report to settle this all.

        And generally, I find Nunes’s little games to be so much political twaddle……………….he is nothing but a party hack….shrug.

      2. Did I say he should not testify…..nope. You just launched into some personal attack on me, because I happen to not be as freaked out as you are. Get over it cupcake. And yeah…….I did stand a post. Far more than YOU do…….or Trump……….or Lahren………..or Hannity……….or Ingraham………or Kilmeade…….and so on.

        To you question, am I “Anti-fascist”…HELL YES…………1000%. Never again, means Never Again. Proud of it.

  5. I haven’t seen it announced on many news sites, but the Senate passed the funding bill for a second large lock in the Soo Locks. Amazing that this was passed in 1986 but never, EVER finalized. Even Debbie StabeNOw couldn’t get it funded with a full Democrat Congress.

    I guess it took this Congress and President to understand the risks of not having a back up lock. WINNING!!!

      1. Not just for me, but for this country, you are correct. 70% of all big ship traffic pass through those locks. Without it, our manufacturing and energy production would come to stand still, and we could suffer a depression that would affect the entire world.

        1. Very, Very Cool then. I am all for funding infrastructure. Massive border walls or a Space Force, nope, but locks, bridges, and roads…….heck yes.

          Goodonya Michigan….and Senate. Will goodonya Donnie when he signs it. :)

          1. So you’ll continue to sit by when China and Russia dominate space? Great.

            Well don’t be surprised if we don’t call you to the strategy sessions. :roll:

          2. Russian Aerospace Defence Forces – Originally formed in 2001, renamed to RADF in 2011.

            2014: China’s president is calling on his country to boost its military power in space by increasing coordination between its air and space defense programs.

            After successfully launching 19 missions in 2015, the People’s Republic plans a range of civilian and military missions that will test new rockets, launch a space laboratory, hone China’s manned spaceflight capability and loft new satellites into orbit — all while furthering plans to bring a habitable space station online by 2022 and put Chinese astronauts on the moon in the mid-2020s.

          3. We do not need a Space Force to continue to lead in Space. And I have zero wish to militarize space.

          4. We have NASA and AFSPACECOM. What we had when we landed on the moon and beyond……….we did it without a Space Force then…….can do it now.

          5. You wishes won’t stop what China and Russia are already doing. Like I said…you won’t be invited to the strategy sessions.

  6. If you all do not think Kanye loves and welcomes ALL the comments he gets, and folks talking about……….you have not been following the man. The man lives on this kind of hype. I ain’t playing. I do not watch the Kardassians, in any way, shape, or form. :)

  7. Susanne, looking at the Russian booster blow up today……..I don’t think they are ahead of us at all. Our Rovers and satellites are better. Our boosters are better, and they land back on earth. In one piece. Again……….glad the folks made it alive today. Space travel be dangerous.

    1. Nice strawman. Never said they are ahead of us technically. Your ignorance on this topic causes me to not bother in engaging you. China and Russia have military space forces. It’s just a fact.

    ——–

    As someone in the military I assume you know this more than most. Wanting / not wanting something to happen doesn’t really matter, and almost everything in history gets militarized.

    Oppenheimer and einstein didn’t want to militarize atomic energy, but here we are.

    Wishing something won’t happen doesn’t make it stop happening.

  9. That should pizz off people like Lemon and CNN and ‘ALL’ the others who see Trump and Kanye ‘as a threat’ to people leaving the Democrat’s plantation. 35% according to a NAACP and Rasmussen Poll.

    Kanye at his meeting with Trump today:

    “They tried to scare me to not wear this hat,” West said, referring to the “Make America Great Again” hat that he wore to the meeting and on a recent appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”

    “When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman – my favorite superhero. You made a Superman cape for me.”

    The rapper went on to chastise the NBC sketch show and other liberal-leaning people in the media for their portrayal of the American president.

      1. Actually he’s standing up for what others should have done a long, long time ago. And he’s hated for it. Keep up with what’s going on here EA. You really need another shovel? Next up, is prison reform and our Judicial system. He sees it, you don’t. You’re too busy wallowing in the feces being spread everywhere and to everyone by Progressives. It suits you, it really does.

      2. Kayne’s literally the black sheep of the Entertainment family. He’s not even an acceptable black man any longer. Strange times.

    1. Saw that, but I don’t put anything past the Obama’s. Could be just a good cop, bad cop ploy on their part for whatever reason. Who knows? Maybe even coordinated/orchestrated like so much that we’ve seen over the years. These are not honorable people you’re dealing with.

      1. It’s damage control. She seems at this point in time, the only cool head who realizes what a mistake they are making. Not that she cares one iota about Republicans, she cares about not totally destroying their chances to regain power.

        1. I would agree with that, both her and Barack have much more political savvy than the ‘unfiltered’ ones do as much as they may mirror them at times.

  10. Quote of the day:

    Rosenstein is a ‘dead man walking’

    Apparently, not only has he refused to testify ‘under oath’ at Congress, but under what circumstances as to what format he’ll talk with them under has also come to an impasse. Apparently, the ‘real’ stickler for him is that he doesn’t want a paper trail. Seems old Rosenstein knows the law pretty well after all, anything you say can and will be used against you.

  11. Taking a quick peak on Fox, my word. Their internet liberals are going crazy over Kanye’s visit. If it doesn’t mean anything, why the histrionics?

    1. It’s because of the people they listen to. There’s a lot at stake when people start thinking for themselves. Hard to ‘control people’ who think for themselves. One of the big unknowns yet to be revealed in November, but the panic is sure there.

    1. CNN, there’s no place but down. Wow.

      I watched clips on them last night, dissing on people for using the word ‘mobs’ last night. Don’t go there, you know better than that, there’s not what it is, in badgering their panelist.

      It was crystal clear. just another word, story, that’s been banned on CNN. Never happened, doesn’t exist, unless we report it that way.

  12. As the polls continue to come out, this one still shocks me.

    California Governor – Cox vs. Newsom

    KFI-NBC 4

    Newsom 54, Cox 42
    Newsom +12

    If you average all the polls, there’s an average of at least 10 points in the undecided, maybe even as high as 12% with the Republican continuing to move up each time.

    It’s the undecided, and the margin of error that makes this a much closer race then what most expected. This really should have been a runaway for Newsome.

  13. The footage of Mexico Beach, FL are devastating. Looks like a nuclear bomb went off. Sure hope no one rode it out and left. :( Entire blocks gone.

    1. I was thinking a lot about those people yesterday. The memory of what happened here a little over a year here is still fresh in my memory. Time just stops. Communications, the same. Being without electricity, and no appliances and having very little contact with anything outside the path of destruction for days, even weeks. It’s a very much you’re on your own type of feeling. The clean-up, the rebuilding. I was thinking earlier how this reminded me of Andrew back in 1994. Later, I heard that very same comparison made – Andrew just leveled Homestead Florida. A lot of rebuilding of lives ahead for a lot of people.

  14. Washington state’s Supreme Court has ruled that the death penalty is unconstitutional and converted to life in prison all pending death sentences in the state.

    ——–

    Well done WA

      1. My initial thoughts were, was it a deterrent, or not? And will it means increases of such crimes? I mean, free room and board for the rest of your life might just be appealing to some in our society.

      2. If these are the sociopath serial monsters , then how much torment are the other prisoners going to experience , with them off death row ? Should there be a place for the most sick souled humans , away from the rest of the prison , I dont think putting them with others is humane . I dont know if it was a deterrent or not . I am concerned with the prisons , the place we hold the people who cannot be in society as they are behaving

    1. He’s just a token negro too. All conservative black people who support Trump is a token negro. That’s how far the left has devolved.

  15. Geez, no one seems to want talk to anyone anymore after talking so much these past 2 years. Rosenstein, followed by another key player in all this: Glenn Simpson of GPS Fusion. Next up? The Ohr’s I’m sure. What will they choose to avoid answering any questions?

  16. Huge jump for Blackburn in Tennessee (New York Times). Wonder if Taylor swift had anything do with it, or the video of Bredesen Staff saying how Tennesseans are just plain ignorant people.

    Funny, how ‘only’ CNN has him leading there. I saw an earlier poll, different race, the same. Really ‘skews’ those averages some rely on (You know who they are).

      Selma – mob = There was a mob in Selma, but it was not the silent marchers.
      Vietnam protestors – mob = Some were very radical and blew shit up.
      Kent state – mob = Seriously? Dance on the grave of the dead EA. So clASSy
      Clarence Thomas protestors – mob = WHAT???
      Iraq war protestors – mob = CODE PINK, yep they are still a mob/
      Tea party – mob = The only injury at a TEA Party event was done by an SEIU Member who bit the finger off of a 60 year old man, and another event when another SEIU Member attacked a wheelchair bound person.
      Occupy – mob = defecating rapists. Yep.
      Woman’s march – mob = Nope. Permitted, but still pathetic.
      Parkland kids – mob = The dead ones honey? Or the mob that verbally attacked Dana Loesch causing a security issue? Yep that was a mini-mob on the brink of violence.
      Kavanaugh protestors – mob = Robots.

    —————–
    Amazing list. Simply amazing.

    The one that debunks all the BS about the Tax Cut Law is awesome!
    Tax Cuts
    Biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history by signing the Tax Cuts and Jobs act into law.
    –Provided more than $5.5 trillion in gross tax cuts, nearly 60 percent of which will go to families. –Increased the exemption for the death tax to help save Family Farms & Small Business.
    –Nearly doubled the standard deduction for individuals and families.
    –Enabled vast majority of American families will be able to file their taxes on a single page by claiming the standard deduction.
    –Doubled the child tax credit to help lessen the financial burden of raising a family.
    –Lowered America’s corporate tax rate from the highest in the developed world to allow American businesses to compete and win.
    –Small businesses can now deduct 20 percent of their business income.
    –Cut dozens of special interest tax breaks and closed loopholes for the wealthy.
    9 in 10 American workers are expected see an increase in their paychecks thanks to the tax cuts, according to the Treasury Department.
    More than 6 million of American workers have received wage increases, bonuses, and increased benefits thanks to tax cuts.
    Over 100 utility companies have lowered electric, gas, or water rates thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
    Ernst & Young found 89 percent of companies planned to increase worker compensation thanks to the Trump tax cuts.
    Established opportunity zones to spur investment in left behind communities.

    1. 9 in 10 American workers will see an increase in their paychecks.
      6 Million have received wages increases, bonuses, and increased benefits.
      89% of companies plan to increase worker compensation.

      Love it.

      1. I will not see one.

        Still waiting for talks to begin on those bilateral deals I was promised 2 years ago when we backed out of TPP.

  19. In all of the brouhaha over Kanye some major things were accomplished yesterday:
    1. Save of Seas Act was signed into law. We will be actively cleaning up our oceans.
    2. An additional large lock was funded in Sault Ste. Marie’s Soo Locks. 70% of all large ship traffic passes through the aging large lock. This is crucial to the world economy.
    3. The Music Modernization Act was signed into law. Part of that law gives pre-1972 recording royalty rights to songwriters AND artists.
    4. Canada approved of tariffs on foreign steel entering their country due to the US market essentially drying up to avoid dumping of steel into their country.

    Since it looked like most of media of was not looking at what happened yesterday, figured I’d let y’all know.

    1. And the market lost over 1000 points in 2 days, and the price of gas is at a 4 year high. Medical costs are rising, Taliban launched a major offensive, we are bogged down in Yemen, and Alabama is still undefeated……..but do not let any alternative info interrupt the Trump Daily Adoration. :)

      1. I notice you only point out market movement when it’s down (contrary to constantly lauding the Obama administration when it went up). Isn’t that exactly the same as RW pointing out when Trump’s poll numbers go up, which you berate him for incessantly? Hmmmmmmmm…….. 😆

        pppssstttt….market is up today

      2. Too bad you’re incapable of celebrating in our accomplishments.

        I guess you want the ocean to stay polluted, artists not get paid, and for the decades old lock to fail.

        Yippie….you’re such a joyful person. :roll:

    2. Another black dude escaped the plantation…screeeeeeeccccccchhhhhhhh!

      (Translation – if we lose our hold on the black vote we are sooooo forked! Please God don’t let them wake up!)

        1. I believe Pew could be added to that too. Forget about he MSM, that’s not what they’re interested in. Not the picture they want to paint, the Van Goh’s of the media they are.

    3. Are the tariffs due to us markets, or a US request to do so in an effort to avoid the “shell game” currently playing out in the soy market with china and Argentina?

      ” Canada is the single largest supplier of both aluminum and steel to the United States. Washington worries that nations could try to ship supplies through Canada and pretend the metals had been produced in Canadian facilities.
      In a bid to address those concerns the Canadian government – acting on a promise it made in March – on Thursday said it would impose new quotas and tariffs on imports of seven categories of steel from many countries to head off a potential rise in imports.”

      https://globalnews.ca/news/4538937/canada-quotas-steel-imports-tariffs/

      1. That’s an interesting take on it. I guess Canada is working with us on global trade. Good to see. Thanks for the article.

    1. Merc………..could envision a usage for a couple of these boys for down on the farm……….once the bugs are worked out, and they are rust proofed. :)

  20. Kanye and Trump………two of the biggest media whores in the nation on the same stage. Like I said Susanne…..the man lives off this hype. Don’t feed it.

    Buy Willie Nelson and Taylor Swift music. :)

      1. I really do not care about an entertainer’s politics. Clint Eastwood is my favorite Director. And Kelsey Grammer is one of my favorite actors. Cannot stand Nugent………..but never could. To be honest, not that big a Taylor Swift fan anyway. Just poking. :)

    1. And like I said I wasn’t talking at all about Kanye. I was talking about the disgusting use of negro in 2018. Stay thick skulled with your tribe while the rest of modern society is appalled at the language being used these days.

  21. As it is Friday, of course, the following must be said. Go Canes……….Go Gators……Go Dolphins……….Go Jags.

    Go Red Sox……….I just like the Red Sox. Interesting history. And Fenway had good beer. :)

  22. Going to see some friends in the play “Veronica’s Room” tonight. Know nothing about it. Supposed to be spooky, by the same guy who did “Rosemary’s Baby”. I like the time around Halloween. It is fun. :)

  23. Sadly, I think that death toll is going to rise. Place looks wiped out for miles around. Damn…….Mother Nature can be a real bitch.
