What in thee hell is going on here?!

According to Benjamin Fearnow of Newsweek, “About 1,000 heavily armed militia, all of whom were black, marched through Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park on Saturday, challenging white nationalist groups in the area to either come out and fight or join them in demonstrating against the government.”

Wait…, what?

“Stone Mountain State Park officials said the black militia group was peaceful, orderly and escorted by police as they called for the removal of the country’s largest Confederate monument near Atlanta.”

Ha!

Ya…, they looked “peaceful” alright!

I don’t think a thousand white guys with guns and body armor, marching anywhere, would ever be described as “peaceful” by Newsweek.

Just sayin’.

“Videos posted to social media show the group, the ‘Not F**king Around Coalition’ (NFAC), meeting at the massive nine-story quartz sculpting that depicts former Confederate president Jefferson Davis and Southern generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.”

Bwahaha!

ablack 12

The “what” coalition?!

“NFAC Founder Grand Master Jay told Newsweek via phone Sunday that the militia members at Stone Mountain on Saturday were ‘100 percent Black’ and they are not affiliated with Black Lives Matter. ‘We are a black militia. We aren’t protesters, we aren’t demonstrators. We don’t come to sing, we don’t come to chant. That’s not what we do,’ he said.”

ablack 13

You’ve made it pretty clear what you DON’T do.

But what is it exactly you do DO, or want to DO?

Well, not being affiliated with the Black Lives Matter organization is at least one good thing.

And, Grand Master Jay?!!!

Really?!

Is that a reference to Grand Master Flash?!

ablack 14

I’m sorry, but am I living in some sort of dream world right now?

‘“Our initial goal was to have a formation of our militia in Stone Mountain to send a message that as long as you’re abolishing all these statues across the country, what about this one?’ Grand Master Jay said, referencing the massive Confederate carving.”

Confederate Monuments Stone Mountain

“He added that he must commend Stone Mountain police for offering the all-Black militia support as they exercised their constitutional rights on July 4th.”

‘“It was all black … there were no brown people, no white people… everyone was Black. I am not a protester, I am the commanding general of my militia, we were swearing in new members,’ he added, highlighting there was a second militia ‘show of force’ Saturday near Phoenix.

I’m sorry, Grand Master, but y’all looked mostly brown to light brown to me.  I didn’t see anyone who was “black.”

Just sayin’.

“The coalition of black militia met at the monument, which is historically tied to the birth of the Ku Klux Klan and has more recently been the site of white nationalist rallies. Leaders of the militia frequently halted the protest to challenge local white supremacists and far-right Second Amendment advocates to ‘stop hiding.’”

‘“I don’t see no white militia, the boogie [boogaloo] boys, the three percenters and all the rest of these scared-ass rednecks. We here, where the f**k you at? We’re in your house,’ one protester said into a PA system during the Stone Mountain Park march.”

Soooo, you’re looking to have a shoot out at the OK Corral or something?

ablack 7

ablack 1

I’m sorry, NFAC, but I think you’ve got some kind of “white supremacy” brain syndrome or something.

Could I suggest you may be a little delusional as well?

‘“It’s a public park, a state park. We have these protests on both sides of the issue from time to time. We respect people’s First Amendment right,’ Bankhead told WXIA-TV. ‘We understand the sensitivities of the issue here at the park … so we respect that and allow them to come in as long as it’s peaceful, which it has been.’”

“Videos shared by visitors to the park Saturday showed several militia members responding to questions from confused motorists asking: ‘Who are you guys?’ One member of the militia immediately threw the question right back at one white motorist and asked him about slavery reparations.”

ablack 17

ablack 16

‘“We want change that’s really going to permanently help us, we don’t want [any] little change, we want some real change,’ one of the organizers said, noting that many black civil rights groups have been marching for change since the 1960s and have largely been ignored.”

And you think this marching is going to somehow be different?

ablack 15

My suggestion to you is you quit crying, quit marching, quit demanding this, quit demanding that, quit running around playing “army,” and take responsibility for yourselves.  Get educated, get a job, then get a better job, and improve your lot in life on your own terms.

African Americans are being sold down the river by organizations and people who need to perpetuate racism in order to justify their own existence.  These people aren’t interested in making anything better…, they’re just interested in profiting from their old, worn out, cries of racism.

This is America.  In America people respect those who respect others and those who can make their own way in this world.

You should try it sometime…, you might like it.

Put Ghislaine Maxwell on a “suicide” watch right now! 

Yes…, and maybe actually watch her…, that would help.

Jim Mustian and Larry Neumeister of the Associated Press report that, “Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell arrested in N.H.”

aghis 1

“British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested Thursday in Bradford, New Hampshire, on charges she helped lure at least three girls — one as young as 14 — to be sexually abused by the late financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused of victimizing dozens of girls and women over many years.”

“Ghislaine” is an uncommon name, to be sure, and I’ve heard it pronounced many ways.

“Ghislaine” is a French name, which should be pronounced (Jiss-len], although it has been pronounced [Jill-ain], [Gill-ain], [Jih-lane].

“According to the indictment, Maxwell, who lived for years with Epstein and was his frequent companion on trips around the world, facilitated his crimes and on some occasions joined him in sexually abusing the girls.”

“Epstein, 66, killed himself in a federal detention center in New York last summer while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.”

I believe the whole, he “killed himself” story is still open to debate.

Mustian and Neumeister report his “suicide” as unequivocal fact it seems, while I see Epstein’s death as a pretty apparent murder, or an “assisted suicide.”

“Maxwell has, for years, been accused by many women of acting as a madam for Epstein, helping him scout young girls for abuse, then hiring them to give him massages, during which the girls were pressured into sex acts. Those accusations, until now, never resulted in criminal charges.”

“The 58-year-old was arrested in Bradford, New Hampshire, where she was living on a wooded estate she purchased for $1 million last December. The FBI had been keeping tabs on her after she disappeared from public view following Epstein’s arrest a year ago.”

‘“More recently we learned she had slithered away to a gorgeous property in New Hampshire, continuing to live a life of privilege while her victims live with the trauma inflicted upon them years ago,’ William Sweeney, head of the FBI’s New York office, told a news conference Thursday.”

Wow…, why don’t you tell us how you really feel, Mr. Sweeney?!

“The indictment, which was unsealed Thursday, included counts of conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.”

“She was also accused of perjuring herself during a deposition in a civil lawsuit over alleged abuse.”

“Messages were sent Thursday to several of Maxwell’s attorneys seeking comment. She has previously repeatedly denied wrongdoing and called some claims against her ‘absolute rubbish.’”

It’s my belief that we’ll find out that is exactly what you are, Ms. Maxwell…, “absolute rubbish.”

“Among the most sensational accusations was a claim by Virginia Roberts Giuffre that Maxwell arranged for her to have sex with Britain’s Prince Andrew at her London townhouse. Giuffre bolstered her allegations with a picture of her, Andrew and Maxwell that she said was taken at the time.”

aghis 15

“Andrew denied her story and Maxwell said in a deposition that Giuffre was ‘totally lying.’”

Really?

aghis 12

You mean Prince Andrew denied sexually assaulting underage girls?

Well, I’ll be!

aghis 14

“Maxwell is the daughter of a British publishing magnate Robert Maxwell, who died in 1991 after falling off his yacht near the Canary Islands. At the time, he was facing allegations that he had illegally looted pension funds from his businesses.”

I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, does it?

“Maxwell was in an intimate relationship with Epstein for years and also was paid by him to manage his various properties, according to the indictment, which included a photograph of Epstein with his arm around Maxwell and his head nuzzling hers. Strauss, at the news conference, stood silent, pointing at the picture as news crews captured the moment.”

Audrey Strauss

“Epstein was initially investigated in Florida and pleaded guilty to state charges in 2008 that allowed him to avoid a lengthy prison sentence. He was free a little after a year in prison.”

“At the time, a federal prosecutor in Florida signed off on an agreement, initially filed in secret, that barred the federal government from charging ‘any potential co-conspirators of Epstein.’”

Well, that doesn’t stink at all, does it?

“Maxwell was described in a lawsuit by another Epstein victim, Sarah Ransome, as the ‘highest-ranking employee’ of Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking enterprise.”

According to Joshua Nelson of Fox News, “Former federal prosecutor Francey Hakes on Monday predicted that Jeffrey Epstein’s accused madam and former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell will plead guilty and start cooperating soon.”

aghis 2

“Hakes said Maxwell is facing an overwhelming amount of evidence against her.”

‘“Ghislaine Maxwell is maybe the last person left in the Jeffrey Epstein co-conspiracy that we know about,’ Hakes told ‘Fox & Friends.’”

“Hakes said that Maxwell is looking at a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence and a life sentence maximum. Hakes said Maxwell will likely cooperate ‘soon,’ including revealing names of others who were involved in the alleged sex trafficking ring.”

“Hakes doubted that Maxwell would refuse to cooperate, considering the possible penalties she’s facing.”

“She has to do every day of that minimum 10 years and she’s grown up a pampered, spoiled woman. There is no way that she would even consider going to jail for that length of time.”

Meanwhile, actress Rose McGowan is calling for Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton to be arrested next for their alleged ties to the late Epstein.

‘“Now get Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew,’ McGowan tweeted on Friday, just one day after Maxwell was captured by the FBI and NYPD in a rural New Hampshire town where she was hiding out.”

“The actress’ tweet was accompanied by a photo of Harvey Weinstein, Epstein and Maxwell standing side-by-side with red X’s over their faces.”

“Maxwell is facing multiple sex abuse charges stemming from an alleged sex trafficking conspiracy involving underage girls. In a six-count indictment unsealed after her arrest, prosecutors allege Maxwell enticed minors to travel to Epstein’s multiple residences – including a multi-story apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, his residence in Palm Beach, Fla., and his ranch in Santa Fe, N.M. – and to Maxwell’s house in London.”

“Following Maxwell’s arrest, Audrey Strauss, acting U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, said she ‘would welcome Prince Andrew coming in to talk with us.’”

“Hakes said that though each charge is an allegation, Maxwell is likely facing an overwhelming amount of evidence against her in the case.”

‘“I think the U.S. attorney’s office has lots of evidence against her. There are at least three victims who all tell similar stories. There has been speculation in the media that Ghislaine Maxwell actually has video of some of these sexual assaults that have taken place over the years if that’s true, she will be providing that to the U.S. Attorney’s office,’ Hakes said.”

Shayna Jacobs, of The Washington Post, reports that, “Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime companion of sex offender Jeffrey Epstein accused of facilitating his sexual abuse of teenage girls, has been transferred to a federal detention center in Brooklyn ahead of an arraignment and bail hearing that may come next week.”

aghis 7

“After Epstein’s death at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center, where he was awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges, the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York vowed to pursue accomplices.”

“Maxwell…, is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, the Bureau of Prisons said in an emailed response to questions. It’s unclear when she arrived in New York.”

“Both federal jails in New York City, where defendants are typically detained pending trial, have a reputation for their squalid conditions.”

These detention centers, in New York, also have other reputations as well…, like cameras being conveniently turned off, guards conveniently napping, etc.

If Ghislaine Maxwell ever gets the opportunity to “name names” in a courtroom, I will be extremely shocked.

In fact, I am guaranteeing, right now, that we will all be hearing about, in the very near future, how Ghislaine Maxwell chose to end her life in the same manner that her former partner in crime, Jeffrey Epstein did.

Like they say…, you can take that to the bank.

Her death will stink to high heaven, but the people behind her death won’t care about that a bit.  Anything is better than they themselves being exposed and brought up on charges.

Where money is no object, and there is a complicit media, anything can happen.

On a side note…, I felt it was worth bringing to my reader’s attention, Ghislaine Maxwell’s bizarre participation in an annual, liberal, women’s event.

aghis 6

Co-hosted by Sarah Brown, wife of the former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, designer Donna Karan, and Huffington Post cofounder Arianna Huffington, the Women: Inspiration and Enterprise (WIE) Symposium is a self-described, “modern, dynamic conference bringing together women and men [not so much men] from a wide spectrum of industries. The event is comprised of inspirational talks and panels, with high profile speakers and guests drawn from the worlds of politics, philanthropy, media, fashion and the arts.”

aghis 13

According to the WIE network, “The WIE Network was created in an effort to create a platform for current women leaders to inspire and empower the next generation of women. Prior WIE symposiums have attracted “inspiring” leaders [if you say so] such as Nancy Pelosi, Senator Kristen Gillibrand, Ted Turner, Melinda Gates and many more.”

“Beneficiaries of the symposiums include the White Ribbon Alliance.”

You can think of the White Ribbon Alliance as an international version of Planned Parenthood.

WIE, in all of its wisdom, selected Ghislaine Maxwell, as a “woman leader” to speak at their event in New York City in 2013.

aghis 4

aghis 5

I guess she could be considered as a “Pied Piper,” leading young girls into a career of “service.”

I would sure be interested in hearing Maxwell’s attempt to “inspire and empower the next generation of women.”

aghis 11

I’m sure she encouraged any especially young attendees to see her personally after her time on stage.

We have now officially entered “The Twilight Zone!”

Now that I’m thinking about it, Rod Serling may have thought this premise would have been too unbelievable, even for “The Twilight Zone!”

What exactly am I talking about here?

Acording to Lee Brown of The New York Post, “St. Louis lawyers who confronted protesters with guns are under investigation.”

adastl 12

“The St. Louis lawyers who pulled weapons on protesters marching past their home are being investigated for possible criminal charges, the city’s lead prosecutor has revealed.”

adastl 2

Excuse me, Mr. Lee Brown, but your reporting here is a little deceiving.

The St. Louis lawyers, a married couple, in question here, most definitely did “pull weapons” on some people…, but these people were not protesters “marching past their home.”

You see, the lawyers’ home is surrounded by a stone wall, and you can only enter their property by first passing through a heavy iron gate.

In this case, “the protesters” elected to break down the iron gate, march up their driveway to their house, and proceed to threaten the couple.

adastl 1

The “protesters,” who had by now graduated to trespassers and vandals, and who were also brandishing firearms, threatened to kill them, kill their dogs, and burn down their house.

adastl 3

This is quite a different scenario as opposed to Mr. Brown’s description.

“Mark and Patricia McCloskey — who went viral after brandishing an AR-15-style rifle and a silver-colored handgun, respectively — were the only ones to lodge a police report over Sunday’s confrontation, insisting they were “victims” of threatening trespassers who entered a gated community, the St. Louis American noted.”

adastl 4

And based on all of the pictures and video and witnesses of the incident, along with all of the news reports showing what “protesters” had done and proved they were capable of doing, I don’t think there is any question that Mr. and Mrs. McCloskey had every right to fear for their lives.

“But the husband-and-wife lawyers are being probed by police and prosecutors for possible threats against the crowd, authorities announced Monday.”

OK…, here’s where the episode of “The Twilight Zone” begins.

adastl 10

‘“I am alarmed at the events that occurred over the weekend, where peaceful protestors were met by guns,’ St. Louis Prosecutor Kimberly Gardner said.”

adastl 9

Again…, Excuse me, Kimberly Gardner, but your description of the “events” are quite misleading.

The St. Louis lawyers, a married couple, in question here, most definitely did “pull weapons” on some people…, but these people were not “peaceful protesters,” as you claim.

You see, the lawyers’ home is surrounded by a stone wall, and you can only enter their property by first passing through a heavy iron gate.

In this case, “the peaceful protesters” elected to break down the iron gate, march up their driveway to their house, and proceed to threaten the couple.

The “peaceful protesters,” who had by now graduated to trespassers and vandals, and who were also brandishing firearms, then threatened to kill the couple, kill their dogs, and burn down their house.

This, again, is quite a different scenario as opposed to Ms. Gardner’s description.

‘“We must protect the right to peacefully protest, and any attempt to chill it through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated,’ she insisted, saying her office was ‘currently working with the public and police to investigate these events.’”

adastl 13

‘“Make no mistake: we will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights, and will use the full power of Missouri law to hold people accountable,’ Gardner warned.”

Kimberly Gardner, who is a George Soros surrogate by the way, is “alarmed” at how the “protesters” were treated!  

adastl 8

adastl 15

And the “protesters” rights must be protected at all costs!

And those evil people protecting themselves and their pets, and their home, on their own property, will be held accountable for not allowing themselves to be the brunt of these “protesters” expression of violence.

“There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call … The Twilight Zone.” – Rod Serling

Like I said in the beginning, this whole scenario might be just too unbelievable for even “The Twilight Zone!”

“Mark McCloskey has insisted in an interview that they only grabbed the weapons after being ‘threatened with our lives,’ comparing it to ‘storming the Bastille.’”

adastl 5

“In their police report, the couple also claimed they only grabbed the weapons after they ‘observed multiple subjects who were armed,’ the St. Louis American said.”

“Missouri law states that a citizen is committing unlawful use of a weapon if they ‘exhibit, in the presence of one or more persons, any weapon readily capable of lethal use in an angry or threatening manner,’ the paper noted. It would likely be a Class D felony punishable by up to four years in prison and a fine not to exceed $5,000.”

That applies to the “protesters” as well, right?

Don’t hold your breath waiting for any of the “peaceful protesters” to be charged, however.

“There is also a, so-called, ‘Castle Doctrine’ that allows people to use deadly force to attack an intruder on their property, the paper stressed.”

Bingo!

Well, there you go!

“The couple’s attorney, Albert S. Watkins, told the paper that the pair ‘acted lawfully on their property.’”

‘“Their actions were borne solely of fear and apprehension, the genesis of which was not race-related. In fact, the agitators responsible for the trepidation were white,’ Watkins stressed in a statement.”

‘“The peaceful protesters were not the subject of scorn or disdain by the McCloskeys,’ Watkins said. ‘To the contrary, they were expecting and supportive of the message of the protesters.’”

“The scandal also led to a Democrat running for a state Senate seat to refuse a donation from the McCloskeys, instead giving it to the gun safety campaign group Moms Demand Action, the paper said.”

What else would we come to expect from democrat politicians these days?

adastl 14

“The protesters were en route to St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home to demand her resignation after she released names and addresses of residents who joined in anti-cop protests.”

In my estimation, these “protesters” are actually pretty lucky they stormed up the driveway they did.

There are many driveways I know of where the “protesters” may have been treated with less “consideration,” let’s say.

Random acts of kindness.

I saw this article recently, which reminded me of one of my favorite life lesson stories.

Random acts of kindness, be they great or small, most definitely do have a positive effect, and a ripple effect through our families, our communities, our country, and or world.

According to Travis Fedschun of Fox News, “Thousands of starfish washed up on South Carolina beaches during low tide recently.”

astarfish 1

“Small starfish washed ashore Monday during low tide in areas near the tourist hotspot of Myrtle Beach.”

“Residents and tourists rushed to play in the mass of wriggling starfish, collecting some and putting handfuls of others back into the water.”

astarfish 3

Ann Malys Wilson, an interpretative ranger (Interpretive Ranger?) at Myrtle Beach State Park, told The Sun News the starfish are known as Lined Sea Stars and can wash up with strong waves, depending on the current.

I have now learned that, “Interpretive park rangers, also commonly referred to as cultural park rangers, are responsible for providing an enlightening experience to the visitors of city, state, or nationally designated parks.”

Well, alrighty then…, please enlighten us Ms. Wilson!

astarfish 7

‘“We tend to see more sea creatures when it’s warmer water,’ she told the paper.”

“Dakota Hughes, an aquarist from Ripley’s Aquarium, told WPDE-TV that starfish washing up on South Carolina beaches is normal.”

First an interpretive ranger and now an “aquarist?”

It turns out an aquarist is just a fancy word for someone who works at an aquarium.

Please proceed, “aquarist,” Dakota Hughes!

‘“We see them more this time of year because there are more living organisms in the intertidal zone for them to feed on,’ he told the television station. ‘As winter comes, they tend to head back out closer to the shelf.’”

“Hughes added, however, in the five years he has worked in the area that he’s never seen as many starfish as the ones that washed up in recent days.”

Hey Yale, y’all got any more of that “veritas” (truth)?   

The “Yale” I’m referring to is, of course, Yale University.

You know…, THE “holier than thou” Yale University…, although most Yale’s administration and faculty would downplay any interest in God.

And THE “smarter than thou” Yale University.

And THE “more socially correct” and the more “politically correct” than you Yale University.

Yes…, that Yale University.

ayale 5

This is also THE Yale University with like a $40 billion tax free endowment fund under its belt, but still found its way to inappropriately apply for the small business aid package from the government in response to the coronavirus effects on our economy.

This is also THE Yale University that felt it couldn’t afford to pay many of its “non-professorial,” servant class, employees during the covid-19 shutdown, even though the amount they would pay would be less that 1% of just the daily interest they earn on their endowment.

ayale 2

From Yale’s own website, “…our school motto is “Urim and Thummim,” which is Hebrew for “Lux et Veritas,” which in turn is just Latin for “Light and Truth.” Emblazoned in the Yale seal, in these two ancient languages, the words convey the most concise and rudimentary expression of the University’s mission: to enlighten the minds of its young students and impart to them truth through knowledge.”

Ahhh, the truth.

The truth, in Yale’s case, and in the case of most of our schools of “higher learning,” is a moving target.

ayale 7

The truth is in the hands of the disseminators, intent on influencing these young people.

ayale 6

They are in fact squashing freedom of thought and poisoning these kids against their own country.

“Yale University traces its roots all the way back to the 1640s, when colonial clergymen led an effort to establish a local college in the tradition of European liberal education.”

ayale 3

They had no way of knowing how “liberal” that education would become!

“The school officially became Yale College in 1718, when it was renamed in honor of Welsh merchant Elihu Yale, who had donated the proceeds from the sale of nine bales of goods together with 417 books and a portrait of King George I.”

ayale 1

A gift like that wouldn’t even get you in the front door these days!

And after 300 years of history, Yale University’s hypocrisy has finally come back around to bite it in its own, privileged, derriere.

ayale 8

What we find at Yale is, “an astounding tale of slavery and deceit,” according to the “NewsMinute.com” (TNM) Staff.

“Following years of debate and protests, Yale University recently announced that it will rename one of its colleges named after John Calhoun, a former US vice-president, who is remembered as an advocate of slavery.”

Hmmm?  An advocate of slavery, and Yale felt it was wise to name one of its undergraduate colleges after him?

Interesting.

“The Calhoun College, one of the University’s 12 undergraduate residential colleges, will now be named to honor Grace Murray Hopper, a computer pioneer who went on to become a US Navy rear admiral.”

‘“The decision to change a college’s name is not one we take lightly, but John C. Calhoun’s legacy as a white supremacist and a national leader who passionately promoted slavery as a ‘positive good’ fundamentally conflicts with Yale’s mission and values,’ Yale President Peter Salovey said.”

And Yale just discovered “Calhoun’s legacy as a white supremacist and a national leader who passionately promoted slavery as a ‘positive good?’”

That’s either not very scholarly, or it not only didn’t bother Yale until now, but they thought enough of him to name one of their school’s after him!

“Just last year, Salovey [Yale’s President] had said that the name of Calhoun college would not be changed.”

That’s quite defiant in your racism, Mr. Salovey.

“Referring to it [his comment about not changing the name], he told Yale News, ‘At that time, as now, I was committed to confronting, not erasing, our history. I was concerned about inviting a series of name changes that would obscure Yale’s past. These concerns remain paramount, but we have since established an enduring set of principles that address them. The principles establish a strong presumption against renaming buildings, ensure respect for our past, and enable thoughtful review of any future requests for change.’”

Well that’s a typical bunch of mealy-mouthed, liberal, gobbledygook.

“Founded in 1701, Yale is the third oldest institution of higher education in the United States.”

“The University got its name from Elihu Yale, a British merchant who served as the governor of the East India Company settlement in Fort Saint George in Madras, India.”

“Born in 1649 in Massachusetts, Yale moved to London with his family when he was around three years of age. After finishing his education, he started working for the East India Company in 1671, and reached Madras [a city in eastern India, now called Chennai] a year later.

“Though one of the most prestigious institutions in the world today bears his name [Yale University], Elihu’s reputation however was not exactly a good one.”

“This is how historian Vakula S. Varadarajan described Elihu, according to a piece in ‘The Hindu.’ ‘Arrogant, ruthless braggart (his garden-house was known for his scandalous relationships), Welshman Elihu Yale was born on April 5, 1649 in Boston, joined the East India Company in 1671, became president/governor of St George Fort in 1687, but was removed from the post for indulging in private trade.’”

“The reason for Elihu’s removal from office was self-aggrandizement at company expense. He was accused of amassing huge wealth, by cheating both his employers and the people of India, and made to pay a fine; he had to stay in Madras till 1699.”

“A blog titled ‘Elihu Yale was a Slave Trader’ on Digital Histories at Yale tells of a dark side of Elihu Yale that not many may know of.”

‘“In the 1680s, when Yale served on the governing council at Fort St. George on the Madras coast, a devastating famine led to an uptick in the local slave trade. As more and more bodies became available on the open market, Yale and other company officials took advantage of the labor surplus, buying hundreds of slaves and shipping them to the English colony on Saint Helena,’ it said.”

‘“Yale participated in a meeting that ordered a minimum of ten slaves sent on every outbound European ship. In just one month in 1687, Fort St. George exported at least 665 individuals. As governor and president of the Madras settlement, Yale enforced the ten-slaves-per-vessel rule. On two separate occasions, he sentenced “black Criminalls” accused of burglary to suffer whipping, branding, and foreign enslavement. Although he probably did not own any of these people– the majority were held as the property of the East India Company– he certainly profited both directly and indirectly from their sale,’ it stated.”

“Last year, when Yale announced the creation of a ‘Committee to Establish Principles on Renaming’, Roger Kimball, editor and publisher of the ‘New Criterion,’ in an opinion piece for The Wall Street Journal, wrote how Calhoun was just an ‘amateur’ when compared to Elihu [Yale].

‘“In the great racism sweepstakes, John Calhoun was an amateur. Far more egregious was Elihu Yale, the philanthropist whose benefactions helped found the University [Yale]. As an administrator in India, he was deeply involved in the slave trade. He always made sure that ships leaving his jurisdiction for Europe carried at least 10 slaves. I propose that the committee on renaming table the issue of Calhoun College and concentrate on the far more flagrant name, “Yale,’” he wrote.”

Wow.

Out of the millions and millions of people to name a college after, you picked thus guy?

And just a reminder to all of you “Yalies…,” I didn’t open this can of worms…, you and your liberal propagandist, gestapo, friends did.

Now you have to deal with it.

ayale 4

May I suggest you change the university’s name to honor a proud, but not an elitist, Indiana family, from America’s heartland, which originally immigrated from Germany?

Specifically, you could honor a proud member of this family, Francis “Frank” Anthony Eff.

You could change your college’s name to Eff University…, or Eff U!

Mo’ Money, Mo’ Money, Mo’ Money!

“[Black Entertainment Television] BET founder Robert Johnson explains his Big Idea of $14 trillion in slavery reparations,” as reported by Maria Schultz of Fox News.

areps 12

“Johnson says 40 million African Americans should each receive $350,000 to atone for slavery and to close the wealth gap with white Americans.”

How does Mr. Johnson define “African American?”

If we manage to come up with a “reparations” dollar amount, does this payment get cut in half if you’re only half African?

What if you’re a quarter African…, or an eighth?

What if your 1/1024 African descent, like Senator Elizabeth Warren is 1/1024 Native American?

And how will this be determined and who will determine it?

Just askin’.

areps 8

‘“The Big Idea’ is a series that asks top lawmakers and figures to discuss their moonshot — what’s the one proposal, if politics and polls and even price tag were not an issue, they’d implement to change the country for the better?”

“Robert Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television, says it’s time America atones for slavery and systemic racism by paying African-Americans reparations to make them economically equal to white Americans.”

“Johnson, the first black billionaire in the United States, has put a price tag on the debt America owes to African-Americans at $14 trillion.”

Hmmm…, why hasn’t this systematic racism stopped you Mr. Johnson?

There are millions and millions of white, off-white, light brown, yellow and red people walking around who aren’t billionaires like you.

But how can that be if our apparent racism is such a hinderance to you and other African Americans?

‘“Nobody talks about cash, but black people understand cash,’ Johnson told Fox News.”

That’s a good one, Mr. Johnson!  But, I would say everybody pretty much understands the concept of “cash money.” That statement there is a pretty racist statement, itself, from where I’m standing.

“Under his proposal, an estimated 40 million African-Americans would get $350,000 in direct cash payments over 30 years (costing the average taxpayer roughly $2,900 a year, according to his office). The $350,000 would signify the wealth disparity between African-Americans and white Americans.”

Exactly how would non-white people be excluded from chipping in on this tax?

Would African Americans end up paying for their own reparations?

Just askin’.

“Johnson contends white Americans built generations of wealth on the backs of slave labor, and black people will never be able to catch up in wealth unless they are paid this debt.”

“You want a big idea: white America, what would happen if you said, ‘please forgive us and accept our apology. And by the way, we think we owe you what was taken from you for over 300 years of slavery, Jim Crow, segregation and denial of economic opportunity and rights,’ Johnson said.”

‘“I think that would be a huge emotional assuaging of guilt.’”

areps 6

Your assumption that I feel any guilt is a major miscalculation on your part.

How about if we [white people] said, “Please forgive us and accept our apology on behalf of our ancestors, and just left it at that?

I mean millions of non-black people immigrated to America after the whole slavery thing even took place.

It is pretty racist for African Americans to expect reparations from people based solely on race rather than actual ancestral ties, isn’t it?

Again, just askin’.

What would probably work better would be a Labor Day telethon type of thing, where those that do feel guilty can “assuage” their guilt by kicking into a pot that would then be distributed as a means of “reparation.”

“Johnson, the founder of RLJ Companies, discussed his reparations proposal at length with Fox News this week. This Q & A has been edited for clarity and brevity:”

areps 3

areps 7

“Q: You’ve put forth a reparations plan that calls for $14 trillion in direct cash payments to descendants from slavery. Why do you think it’s important for today’s Americans to atone for the sins of the past?”

“Johnson: ‘America from its inception has been plagued by the evils of slavery, so much so that this country fought a brutal civil war to try to settle the issue. Well, obviously, the issue was not settled after the Civil War. And this country has experienced continual racial violence, segregation and discrimination since that time. And as a country that has espoused ideas about freedom, individual rights, equal treatment under the law, everything in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and yet at the same time have this significant division between blacks and whites. Economically, socially, educationally — all of these things are because America has never come to grips with its original sin of slavery, which has been responsible for most of the disharmony between blacks and whites in this country.

areps 9

And therefore, I’m proposing that if America can atone for that in the form of cash payments to African-Americans to make them economically equal to white Americans, two things will happen. One, African-Americans will be, in effect, financially equal in a capitalist society and given the opportunity to grow wealth for themselves and their families. And two … unless you can atone, forgive and then repair in the form of the $14 trillion of cash, which the way I’ve developed it would make 40 million African-Americans equal in wealth to white Americans, we will live with this problem for generations to come.”

“Q: Your plan calls for $14 trillion to be paid out to descendants of slavery over the course of 30 years. How do you get to that figure?”

“Johnson: ‘It’s simple math. If you look at it this way, the median white American family has about $350,000 of personal net worth. African-Americans have about 10 times less than that. So about, let’s say, $30,000 of personal net worth of an African-American family. In order to make everything equal. You have to bring African-Americans equal to white Americans.’”

‘“And the factors that we use to determine net worth are pretty simple. Your home is your most important asset for most middle-class people. African-Americans are way behind white Americans in homeownership. Income, i.e. salaries, are the next factor in wealth. African-Americans fall behind white Americans significantly in income, savings, investments in stocks and bonds, money to put your kids in school. When you take all these factors, you come up with the fact that the disparity of wealth is something that you need to close. So, in order to close that — to bring 40 million African-Americans, up to $350,000 of wealth. Well, you multiply that number — $350,000 – times 40 million African-American descendants of slaves. You come out with $14 trillion. That money would be paid out over 30 years.’”

So, like in your case Mr. Johnson, and the cases of many extravagantly rich black entertainers and sports figures…, would they be expected to return much of their wealth in an effort to “equalize” things?

Again, just askin’.

“Q: Would this be a special reparations new tax that would fund this program?”

“Johnson: ‘Ultimately, it’s a debt owed by the taxpayers. And reparations is a debt owed by the nation as a whole because all of the wealth that was taken from slaves. Free labor is a transfer of wealth.

That wealth of slavery found its way throughout the creation of wealth in the United States. I’ve often said that slaves may have died but the money that they created did not die. Money doesn’t die.’”

You did live through live through the financial crises of 2007-2008 didn’t you, Mr. Johnson?

Money doesn’t seem to “die” for people like you or our privileged and protected financial institutions, but for average people like me, a lot of our money definitely “died,” or was redistributed back to those who caused the problem out of their greed in the first place.

Just sayin’.

‘“Money not only circulates; money multiplies. If you gave me a group of the brightest forensic accountants, I would be willing to bet you that I could trace every dollar of wealth in the United States today back to slavery.’”

Oh, I’m sure you could…, and I’m sure you’d be wrong.

Many, many, many more Americans did not own slaves, as opposed to those who did.

‘“The $350,000 would be paid on average $10,000 to $11,000 per year for the next 30 years to each African-American descendant. Let’s assume there are 170 million people who pay taxes in the U.S. If you break it down by days, it comes out to American taxpayers paying about $8 a day in reparations.’”

Oh, that’s all?

‘“Now, anticipating the question, what about poor whites who may not have that money to pay into the reparations program? Well, we could do it like we do other taxes. It could be a progressive tax. So those white Americans with more money would pay more, like the income tax. Those white Americans with less money would pay less. And by the way, African-Americans would also pay tax on this because it’s a responsibility of the nation. And we’re not exempting African-Americans from paying that tax, even though they are the recipients of the damages, just as if you were to get damages awarded by a court today. The court wouldn’t say, well, you have damages coming, you don’t have to pay taxes. You have to pay taxes.’”

Ok…, well that doesn’t make much sense, reparations or not.

And poor “guilty” people are held to lesser accountability than richer “guilty” people?

This whole thing just keeps getting better and better.

“Q: And how do you envision these direct cash payments being distributed? And how would you determine who is eligible for the payments?”

“Johnson: ‘The eligibility is any African-American, black American, who is a direct descendant of slaves. So that’s fairly simple.”

Actually, it isn’t that simple at all.

I would estimate that there are many “black” Americans who are not descendants of slaves.

Does Ancestry.com have the final determination here, or what?

And what if there is no “documentation” available?

Are we just going to take someone’s word for it?

‘“And the definition of who’s black. We simply use the slave era definition of black. And back in slavery days … if you had one drop of blood in you that was black you were determined to be black. You were treated as black. So, we’ll use that same model.’”

So, you’re saying that approximately 300 million out of our population of 328 million would be receiving reparations?

I mean, who’s to deny someone who “identifies” as black or claims that “One drop” of African heritage?

If we get to this point in the process, please remind me to buy stock in DNA testing companies.

Even if someone supported the concept of reparations for slavery, who could support this proposed solution?

‘“The money would come out of the taxpayers’ pockets. …  So that money would be transferred in the form of a cash payment to every African-American. It’s sort of like Social Security. They send you a check.’”

“Q: There’s been some reparations proposals in Washington. Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., has a bill that would establish a commission to study the impact of slavery and continuing discrimination against African Americans and then make recommendations on reparation proposals. In the House, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, authored the companion legislation. Do you support these efforts? Have you talked to them about these plans?”

“Johnson: ‘I know about them and I know Sheila Jackson Lee and I know Cory, but no, I have not talked about them. And fundamentally, the reason I haven’t talked about them is because they are going nowhere.

areps 10

There is no need to study reparations or slavery. You can go to Google and you could have within an instant, hundreds of thousands of articles, literature, studies, on reparations and slavery. To me, this is rearranging the deck chairs on a racial titanic. It’s not going any place.’”

Ha!  A “racial titanic!”  That’s a new one!

‘“The Democrats will never, ever vote for any reparations involving cash payments to descendants of slaves. They will never do it. And what they will do is what they have always done, which is paternalistic programs managed by bureaucrats to give support — somewhat means-tested support — in the black community. And call it a day. That’s it. I guarantee you that’s what will happen with this study. Because that’s what this government … is comfortable with: giving money to hopefully well-meaning bureaucrats to supervise money going to help black people.

If you’re going to close the wealth gap, there are only two ways to do it. Either you’ve got to stop white people from getting wealthier, which you’re not going to. Or you got to make black people wealthier.

The only way you are going to do it is if you give them cash.  Programs don’t do it.’”

Oh…, sorry about that.  Then maybe we should rethink all of these social programs that just “don’t do it.”

“Q:  How would you know if this program has been successful? Would you gauge it from an economic standpoint where you see the wealth gap lessen or be closed?”

“Johnson: ‘You would obviously gauge it by closing the wealth gap. That’s fairly simple because what happens when you have wealth, you do the things that white Americans have done from the time they first arrived here. They bought homes. They started businesses. They sent their kids off to college. They saved. They invested. And all of a sudden they accumulated wealth. African-Americans were denied that opportunity.’”

I don’t think “denied” is the proper word to use here, as there are many wealthy African Americans in America.  So, these wealthy African Americans were not “denied,” but others were?

What is it?

areps 11

‘“The second part is really up to white Americans. Will white Americans say to themselves, ‘we have atoned for an original sin. And not only that, we have made 40 million African-Americans whole for what was done to them through no fault of their own. They were dragged here on ships to be slaves. Not even people. Property. And we took advantage of the labor that they created and used it to build our wealth. Now we’re saying we want to atone.’”

And actually, they weren’t “dragged here,” they were sent here by other Africans…, African slave acquirers and African slave traders.

“If white people see this as a way of saying in a huge way, I apologize. I’m sorry. I can assure you there are no more forgiving people on the face of the Earth than African-American people.’”

If what I see on TV, courtesy of Black Lives Matter, is your definition of “forgiving,” you can keep your forgiveness.

areps 11

IF…, and that’s a big IF, we ever get to the point of actually doling out reparations, there may be other factors that need to be considered.

Regarding the Black Lives Matter (BLM) actions, let’s start by deducting the costs of all of the burnt buildings and property from the overall reparations amount.

Then let’s deduct the value of all of the looted merchandise.

areps 4

How about the cost of all of the torn down statutes, and the cost to clean-up and repair all of the defaced and vandalized property?

Then there’s the cost for additional law enforcement and military deployment.

And how about the costs for the losses of private businesses?

Then we’ll have to deduct a recipient’s cost to society up to this point by determining how much money have they already received via social programs…, or, how much in “reparations” have they already received.

There are six major U.S. welfare programs. They are the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programs (SNAP or “food stamps”), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), and housing assistance.

Once all of these other factors are taken into consideration, the actual cost of “reparations” to all of the other Americans, or non-blacks, which include those of European descent, Latino descent, Asian descent, Indian descent, Native American descent, can be determined.

I’m sure we’ll find that many African Americans have already received more than their share.

I could additionally make the case that White America has been attempting to make atonements for enslaving Africans all along.

Like I have already mentioned, we have a wide array of social welfare programs, but we also have an allowance of Black specific colleges and businesses, as well as an acceptance of Affirmative Action for scholarships and job opportunities.

In the end, the truth is, slavery was not unique to the United States; it is a part of almost every nation’s history, from Greek and Roman civilizations to contemporary forms of human trafficking.

I don’t have a personal is with Robert Johnson…, in fact, he and I are in agreement on many issues, and on many levels…, however, as far as reparations are concerned, Mr. Johnson is way off base in my opinion.

areps 2

Mr. Johnson decried the ineffectiveness of the democrat party on behalf of African-Americans, and he even said he felt “Dems are taking black voters for granted.”

He has called for BLM to break away from the democrats and form their own party.

areps 5

The problem is, Mr. Johnson, this “party” already exists.

It’s called The Communist Party.

Sleepy Joe will be a “no show!”

Yes…, Sleepy Joe will be a “no show” when it comes to any kind of presidential debate.

There’s no way the democrats let Creepy Joe out on a stage to go one-on-one with President Trump!

I’m calling this one right now.

Again…, there’s no way the democrats let Creepy Joe out on a stage to go one-on-one with President Trump!

adebate 1

Every time they let Quid Pro Quo Joe out of his basement, he sticks his foot in his mouth.

adebate 10

Most recently Sleepy Joe proclaimed that “120 million Americans died” from the Chinese virus, coronavirus, Covid-19, or whatever you want to call it.

adebate 8

Yes, Joe…, losing over a third of our country’s population would be a very serious matter, if that were the case.

Which it isn’t.

adebate 9

The democrats will use any and all kinds of excuses to avoid Biden participating in a live debate with President Trump…, and the fake news media, of course, will give him a pass.

adebate 7

We’ll hear how debates are actually not that important and how they really don’t add much to the process anymore.

We’ll hear that no debate is worth spreading the coronavirus and possibly killing others!

Why, it’s a matter of life and death!

Mark my words…, THERE WILL BE NO LIVE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES.

That being said…, as a response to this, I humbly suggest that President Trump and his campaign produce their own version of a “debate,” using a stand-up cardboard cut-out of Sleepy Joe to stand at the opposing podium, and someone who sounds like Creepy Joe to provide his verbal “answers.”

Can you imagine?!

This world be hysterical, totally effective, and challenge the Super Bowl for the most watched television program of the year.

Would this type of event be right up President Trump’s alley or what?!

It would be an absolute win-win-win-win-win scenario!

BLM is BS!

Now I’m not saying I disagree with the belief that black lives matter.

Of course, black lives matter.  All lives matter.

What I’m referring to here is the BLM organization. The official Black Lives Matter organization.

These people have co-opted the whole concept of “black lives matter” and are attempting to use it as a racial wedge…, as a “smokescreen” to hide their real intent…, which is to take away our freedom and destroy America as we know it.

That’s why I say, “BLM is BS!”

ablm 4

Adam Ford, for DISRN.com, reports that, “A 2015 video clip has surfaced of an interview with Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors in which she assures her interviewer that the group has an underlying ideology, saying, ‘We’re trained Marxists.’”

ablm 1

“Trained Marxists,” huh?

Has anyone asked her where she got this training, and from who?

It would be interesting to hear that answer.

“Responding to the interviewer’s concern that the BLM movement might not have enough of a ‘clear ideological structure,’ Cullors responded by saying that she and another co-founder ‘in particular’ are dedicated to the ideology of Communist leader Karl Marx.”

ablm 3

‘“We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular, we’re trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories.’”

“Alicia, whom Cullors mentioned, is Alicia Garza. Garza, Cullors, and a third woman, Opal Tometi, founded Black Lives Matter together.”

What’s funny to me is that Cullors and her friends actually think they’d have a seat at this “Marxist table of control” when the dust settled.

Believe me…, they’d be brushed aside by these Nazi/fascist/communists in a heartbeat.

“BLM’s website lists many far-left ideals in its list of core beliefs, including [but not limited to]:”

“We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.”

Say what?

That’s the first item in a list of your core beliefs?

“We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.”

I haven’t really seen BLM build anything…, in fact, just the opposite.  All I see BLM do is tearing things down, burning things up, taking things that aren’t theirs, generally vandalizing anything in their wake.

“We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.”

Again…, say what?

As far as “practicing empathy” goes, I would suggest practicing a lot more.

And I get the “comrades” reference.  As a tie-in to The Communist Manifesto.

‘We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work ‘double shifts’ so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.”

Excuse me BLM, but your “spaces” appear anything but “family-friendly.”

“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”

We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”

I encourage you to check out The Communist Manifesto for yourself.

https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1848/communist-manifesto/

The following is a small excerpt from The Communist Manifesto that may shed some light on BLM’s real goals.

“In short, the Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things.

Finally, they labour everywhere for the union and agreement of the democratic parties of all countries [referring to the preferred New World Order].

The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.”

The only real difference I see, is that The Communist Manifesto is aimed at workers, while BLM’s sheep want to do anything but work.

ablm 5

The “BacktoJerusalem.com” website adds, ‘“We are trained Marxists,’ Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said, during an interview with Real News Network, further adding to the parallels between her movement and the rise of Mao Zedong’s Marxist movement in China.”

“Marxism is important for Christians to understand, because it is an ideology that pushes atheism and persecutes Christians. The Chinese believers understand this better than most, because they are still suffering under the banner of Marxism. Back to Jerusalem has written several books that talk extensively about the rise of Marxism in China and how the enemy used it to attack the church in one of the most systematically brutal ways ever seen.”

“One primary theme found in these books is this: once Marxism is adopted by a country, Christians die – in large numbers.”

“Karl Marx said, ‘religion is the opium of the people,’ and taught that his fight for oppressed people and religion were incompatible.”

“History has shown that more Christians have died from Communist Marxism than any other single ideology in the history of man. Marxism has been tried on nearly every continent, in different nations, by different cultures, but there has never been a nation on earth that has adopted Marxist teaching and not systematically killed Christians. Not one. Ever.”

“From the gulags in Russia, to the death camps in North Korea, to Red Terror in Ethiopia, to the Killing fields of Cambodia, to Cultural Revolution in China – Marxism has been one of the most brutal Christian killing machines in history.”

“Researcher, Antonio Socci, claims the untold story of the 20th century is the murder of 45 million Christians, mostly at the hands of Marxism and that massacres still continue to this day.”

And this is what “Black Lives Matter” espouses?

I can assure you that none of the fools making donations to this group, or those professing their allegiance to BLM in the name of racial injustice, have any idea about the real goals of this organization.

“Anyone associated with the history and rise of Mao Zedong can see the similarities between the two movements:”

Mao was a Marxist

Mao was an atheist

Mao used minority abuses to fuel his cause

Mao appealed to the youth

Mao inspired student and union protests

Mao used violence and fear to accomplish his goals

Mao destroyed statues and history books in an effort to erase history

Mao desired to destroy the government system to replace it with a Marxist structure

“The similarities should not cause fear or hate, but rather an awareness.”

Uh, I don’t know about that.  Some fear and hatred for this group would not exactly be a bad thing.

“[Most] Christians are unaware of the Marxist ideology of Black Lives Matter and their removal of faith-based solutions to racism. They are unaware of the war that Black Lives Matter has made against the traditional families with fathers. They are unaware of the militant LGBTQ agenda that they espouse. They are also unaware of the cop-killing communist matriarch Assata Shakur, whom the three female founders aspire to be like.”

The real question is, “Where is the mainstream media on this?”

The fake news, liberal propaganda, mainstream media obviously doesn’t want the American people to become aware of what is REALLY going on here.

The TRUTH is, the mainstream media and the democrats are totally complicit with Black Lives Matter and their goals.

Why do these liberals gotta be so mean?  

According to Talia Kaplan of Fox News, “New York Post columnist Miranda Devine said on Wednesday that Food Network host John Henson ‘should be ashamed of himself for targeting’ President Trump’s 14-year-old son Barron in a tweet over the weekend.”

abarron 5

You have to wonder, exactly what would motivate Henson to make a hurtful and mean-spirited remark like that?

I mean, who sits around thinking about Barron Trump, much less dreaming up hurtful tweets towards him?

abarron 9

I would have to assume that Jim Henson has some mental health issues going on here.

‘“You may hate President Trump, but don’t attack his child, his teenage son,’ Devine told ‘Fox & Friends’ on Wednesday.”

“Devine was reacting to a Father’s Day tweet where Henson reportedly questioned whether President Trump is Barron’s father.”

abarron 1

What the hell is up with that?

And how do you get 37,700 “likes” to garbage like that?

There are definitely some mental health issues going on here, along with some deep-seeded jealousy and narcissistic issues as well.

abarron 7

We see this quite often with “comedians…,” especially “comedians” who aren’t particularly funny or talented.

abarron 3

I mean, being a host on the Food Network is only about one step above selling estate jewelry on a cable channel.

“In a tweet, which has since been deleted, The Daily Wire reported that the television host and stand-up comic, wrote, ‘I hope Barron [Trump] gets to spend today with whoever his dad is.’”

Wow.  What an underhanded, despicable, and classless thing to say.

He may have a future in democrat politics!

‘“It’s utterly despicable that a Food Network host would use Father’s Day to target a child, a 14-year-old boy who has done nothing wrong,’ Devine said on Wednesday.”

“Melania Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said Henson’s comments about Barron were ‘inappropriate and insensitive,’ according to a statement to the Daily Caller.”

Yes…, “inappropriate and insensitive,” to say the very least.

‘“Sadly, we continue to see inappropriate and insensitive comments about the President’s son [Barron Trump]. As with every other Administration, a minor child should be off-limits and allowed to grow up with no judgment or hate from strangers and the media,’ she said.”

“Devine said that ‘We’ve seen a pattern of this,’ adding that ‘the first lady is famously very protective of Barron Trump.’”

As well you would expect.  She is his mother after all, Ms. Devine.

“Devine pointed to an incident last December where Stanford Law Professor Pamela Karlan, who testified during the impeachment hearing, used Barron Trump’s name to illustrate her point that President Trump can’t rule like a king.”

‘“The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron,’ Karlan said in the committee room, prompting chuckles across the room.”

“Chuckles” from other clueless morons like herself.

And the fact that he named his son Barron, which isn’t even the same as a royal “baron,” and the fact that he named his son “Barron” more than 10 years before he even thought of running for the presidency, never even crossed her feebly biased mind.

What an absolute dolt.

My regard for lawyers has not been very high to start with…, and they seem to lower my esteem for them the more they open their mouths.

‘“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics,’ the first lady tweeted in response. ‘Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.’”

Mrs. Trump, I’m sorry to say that these people don’t get ashamed.

They have no shame.

“Karlan apologized for the remark, but not without making another dig at the president.”

They also never really apologize, because they’re not really sorry.

They only “apologize” because not apologizing may hurt their narrative in some way.

‘“I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son. It was wrong of me to do that,’ Karlan said during the hearing. ‘I wish the president would apologize for the things that he’s done that’s wrong, but I do regret having said that.’”

Just one thing Ms. Karlan; if you can’t even realize when what you yourself are saying is inappropriate, how do you pretend to know that The President has done things worth apologizing for?

Just sayin’.

You really should drop this whole testifying thing and go back to something you’re good at, like poisoning the brains of your students with all of your liberal propaganda.
