Omar finds a white guy she’s not fearful of.

Doing to the country  what she’s doing to him.

My what a difference a year makes!

Omar changes lanes . . . again.

Rep. Ilhan Omar said Americans should be “more fearful of white men” when discussing the threat of “jihadist terrorism.”

The Minnesota progressive was asked in a resurfaced interview with Al Jazeera from August 2018 about the rise of Islamophobia, citing the attacks that killed eight people on a Manhattan bike path in 2017 and the 2015 terror attack in San Bernardino, Calif., that killed 14.

“I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country, especially if you don’t count the 3000+ on 9/11.  That was just some people who did things,” Omar answered.

“And so if fear was the driving force of policies to keep America safe — Americans safe inside of this country — we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men,” she continued.

But the liberal rep has been doing some “monitoring” and “creating” of her own.  Looks like the thrice-married Congresswoman – one, if you don’t count the marriages to her brother – has taken consulting to a whole new level with Tim Mynett.  Mr. Mynett, besides being married, also serves as Omar’s quarter-million-dollar-a-year political consultant.

Dr. Beth Mynett says her cheating spouse, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative — and that he even made a “shocking declaration of love” for the Minnesota congresswoman before he ditched his wife, alleges the filing, submitted in DC Superior Court on Tuesday.

The physician said her husband “has a history of emotional volatility, that can cause him to become easily angered and rageful,’’ according to the papers.  So, she concluded, “he should make the perfect Muslim.”

For her part, Rep. Omar is sticking with the Muslim practice of keeping her mouth shut. She has adopted a new campaign slogan: “We put the Share in Sharia.

Own your attitude.

Too good not to share.

Meddling Russian Agent Exposed

Oopski!

NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell on Wednesday retracted his story about supposed Russian ties to President Donald Trump’s finances and apologized for reporting it — just as Trump’s lawyer demanded.

O’Donnell said, however, “I still don’t know if the story is true, but those that know me best also know that’s my standard when I’m impugning someone else’s character.  To quote one of my favorite characters in history, ‘What is truth.'”

His public pull-back unfolded quickly in the opening minute of “The Last Word,” where 24 hours earlier the cable news host said that a source had told him that Deutsche Bank documents showed that Russian oligarchs had co-signed a loan application for Trump.

O’Donnell reported the story, based on a single source he did not identify, even as he couched it with the qualifier “if true” and admitted it had not been verified by NBC News.  O’Donnell explained, “Verifying a story takes so long, costs money, and it might hurt my ratings.  So we ran with it.”

Trump’s lawyer, Charles Harder, had written to NBC Wednesday afternoon, saying the story was false and defamatory and threatening legal action if it wasn’t disowned. Harder said the story could have been disproven with an internet search.

Said O’Donnell, “Do an internet search!  What are you, crazy?”  Harder later added, “Mr. O’Donnell’s ‘if true‘ standard defies all journalistic standards.  Why just today, someone told me that they have photographs of Mr. O’Donnell in a compromising position with a goat.   “If true“, this could be embarrassing to Mr. O’Donnell

O’Donnell quickly tweeted that he made an “error in judgment” reporting the story.  If true, Mr. O’Donnell is the master of understatement.

Biden courts the cotton-pickin voters.

Joe Biden claimed racism is institutional in America on Tuesday, but would not commit wholeheartedly to picking a person of color as his running mate if he were to win the Democrat presidential nomination.

Biden, who has faced scrutiny over his ties to avowed segregationists and opposition to school busing, told a group of reporters that racism is an institutional “white man’s problem visited on people of color” within the United States.

“White folks are the reason we have institutional racism,” the former vice president said. “There has always been racism in America. White supremacists have always existed, they still exist.”

“The bad news is I have a long record. The good news is I have a long record,” the former vice president said. “People know me — at least they think they know me. I think after all this time, I think they have a sense of what my character is, who I am.”

“I’ve never, ever, ever in my entire life been in a circumstance where I’ve ever felt uncomfortable being in the black community, with the possible exception of when Barack made me ride the DC Metro train to work,” Biden added.

When asked if he would consider picking a person of color, Biden answered, “Hell no, I’ve got an institution to protect.  This is one guy that owns the black.  I mean the black vote.”

Kenya continues to meddle in US elections.

Obama wants to take on ‘partisan gerrymandering’ by engaging in . . . well . . .  ‘partisan gerrymandering.’

Barack Obama announced a new initiative on Monday aimed at recruiting volunteers to help Democrats come out on top in the redistricting process that will begin after the 2020 census is complete. The former president is pairing up with Eric Holder, his former attorney general, who has just completed another gun running trip to Mexico.

Holder and Obama want to to teach and train local recruits how to be leaders in what they call the fair map movement.  ‘I’ve always believed that training is at the heart of organizing,’ Obama said in a statement on the group’s website.

Former pres and his former attorney general explicitly promote gaining an advantage for Democrats

‘The movement for fair maps will determine the course of progress on every issue we care about for the next decade. And we can’t wait to begin organizing when the redistricting process starts in 2021. We need to build this movement from the ground up – right now,’ he added.

Part of the plan includes “consolidating all the states east of California into one state called ‘Obamaland.’  With the number of US states reduced to about a half a dozen” Democrats are confident that they can secure victory in all upcoming elections.  Efforts are also underway to add the state of “Northern Mexico,” ensuring a Democratic stronghold into perpetuity . . . or until the collapse of the welfare state, whichever occurs first.

Bret Stephens is a bedbug.

Glad to come over for dinner and repeat it.

I like my New York Strip steak medium rare.

Looking forward to meeting Mrs. Bedbug.

A New York Times columnist became the laughing stock of Twitter after a professor shared an email from the writer complaining about being called a ‘bedbug.’

David Karpf, an associate professor of media and public affairs at George Washington University, took to his social media on Monday to share that columnist Bret Stephens took issue with a tweet the educator made in reference to news that bedbugs were in the NYT newsroom.  ‘The bedbugs are a metaphor,’ Karpf said in his initial tweet. ‘The bedbugs are Bret Stephens.’

The tweet had initially received a measly nine likes, which Karpf noted, but eventually made its way to Stephens.   In response, the columnist took to Karpf’s email and CC’d GWU’s provost.

‘I’m often amazed about the things supposedly decent people are prepared to say about other people – people they’ve never met – on Twitter,’ he said in the email that Karpf shared. ‘I think you’ve set a new standard.’

He continued: I would welcome the opportunity for you to come to my home, meet my wife and kids, talk to us for a few minutes, and then call me a ‘bedbug’ to my face.  ‘That would take some genuine courage and intellectual integrity on your part. I promise to be courteous no matter what you have to say. Maybe it will make you feel better about yourself.’

Bret Stephens was reminded of his previous First Amendment guardianship:

Several users shared grabs of Stephen's old tweets where he decried PC culture and those who took issue with the 'right to offend'

Unless, of course, you call a New York Times journalist a bedbug.

So what time is dinner?

Maryland Police uncover Meth honey.

Leon Haughton, a legal green card holder from Jamaica who has lived in Maryland for almost 10 years, arrived at Baltimore-Washington International Airport on December 29 following his yearly pilgrimage back home. U.S. Customs and Border Protection detained him. For what, he wasn’t sure.

Maryland Transportation Authority Police arrested him, telling him that the bottles in his bag that he had cleverly labeled “honey” had tested positive for methamphetamine. A police dog sniffed Haughton’s bag raising suspicion that he had drugs, and a field test at the airport yielded positive results for meth. He spent the next 82 days in jail.

Only one problem.  The bottles really were full of honey. Maryland State Police lab test results confirmed that on January 17, and prosecutors dropped three felony drug counts six days later.  Yet he stayed in jail. The state was still pursuing a misdemeanor possession charge, the lab results notwithstanding, because Maryland’s lab is not fully equipped to test liquids. On January 24, Haughton and his lawyer sought his immediate release on bail. It was denied.

Citing the K-9 hit and the positive field test, prosecutors maintained the lesser charge while law enforcement sent the bottles to a Homeland Security lab in Georgia for more testing.

Normally, Haughton would’ve been released on his own recognizance since the charges levied against him had been whittled down to one misdemeanor. But the original felony counts triggered an active Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer—so if the state released him, the feds could arrest and deport him. Haughton’s legal saga took place in the midst of the winter’s lengthy government shutdown, meaning that no one could get in touch with the agency to have the detainer lifted.

“The ICE detainer is really prohibitive,” said Laura M. Robinson, a U.S. District Court judge for Anne Arundel County, during Haughton’s third bail review hearing on February 5, according to The Washington Post. “I’m kind of up against it on the ICE detainer.”

Haughton would not go home until March 21, when the new lab results came in and the state finally dropped the remaining charge.

The case highlights a heap of inane government incompetence.  Why was Haughton’s honey tested at the first lab if that facility was not prepared to render a result? Why did it need to be tested three times to get an accurate result, and why did that take so many months to complete?

When called Maryland Police Lab Chief Examiner Winfield B. Pooh initially answered his phone, he simply said, “Oh, bother.  I think that I would very much like to do more testing” and hung up.  Subsequent calls went unanswered and unreturned.  It has been reported that Pooh has retained lawyer Chris Robbins of Thousand Acre, Maryland.  Mr. Robbins had no comment on the situation.

Not only has the honey not been returned to Mr. Haughton, but he lost both of his jobs, one as a cleaner and the other as a construction worker. He also has six children, and he says that their school performance suffered immensely while he was away.

Apparently, sissies have feelings too.

And are characteristically catty when apologized to.

Who knew?

Hundreds of ballet dancers performed outside the Good Morning America studio in Times Square to show support for Prince George after host Lara Spencer mocked the young royal for taking ballet lessons.

Spencer apologized live on air on Monday following the backlash against her comments admitting she had ‘screwed up’ and calling her reaction to the young royal’s new school curriculum ‘insensitive’ and ‘stupid’.   But the pirouetters were having none of that apology stuff.

Afterwards, a crowd gathered outside the Good Morning America studio in New York and performed a series of pirouettes to support the #BoysDanceToo social media movement.

Robber takes the Room Temperature Challenge

We have a winner.

Can you hear me now?

Marine reservist Metro PCS employee with a license to carry draws a gun from his waistband and shoots and kills an armed robber who stormed into his Philadelphia store and demanded cash.

The incident occurred shortly after 4pm on Monday at the corner of 70th and Elmwood Streets in Southwest Philadelphia, and was caught on surveillance video.  The video shows the would-be robber enter the store with a handgun, tossing a bag on the counter and demanding the clerk fill it with phones.

The clerk, licensed to carry a firearm, doesn’t hesitate to draw a handgun from his waistband, and fires multiple times at the crook.

The robber, wearing a hoodie, walks into the Metro PCS store with a gun in his right hand. The robber throws a bag on the counter and demands phones as the shopkeeper draws. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene at 4.12pm.

The Metro PCS store has been the scene of multiple armed robberies in the past.  Investigators say the store has been robbed at least two other times within the past year.

Robberies became such a common occurrence that the store kept a logbook for police officers to sign on regular visits.  Locals who know the employee say they are glad he came out of the tense encounter unharmed.  ‘He comes in here and buys food. I bought my phone from there. He’s a really good guy,’ one person told KYW-TV.

‘It’s a shame that it had to happen, but thank God, you know what I mean, he didn’t get hurt,’ another woman said.

Yes.  We know exactly what you mean.

Psychedelic Warlord lives in El Paso

“One day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles…This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams. As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.” 

Beto O’Rourke, a/k/a The Psychedelic Warlord

 

As a teenager, Beto O’Rourke was a member of the computer hacker group Cult of the Dead Cow, named after a shut-down Lubbock slaughterhouse. The group “is notorious for releasing tools that allowed ordinary people to hack computers running Microsoft’s Windows”. According to O’Rourke the group include female members; although it was rare for such groups in that era to contain any female hackers. O’Rourke has admitted that he stole long-distance phone service during his teen years in order to use his dial-up modem. O’Rourke wrote numerous poems and other texts for Cult of the Dead Cow under the pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord”, a name taken from a 1974 rock song by the band Hawkwind. Pieces P. Warlord authored during this period included sexual themes and random violence.

More recently, he has styled himself as a champion of press freedom, tweeting last October: “The press is not the enemy of the people but the best defense against tyranny.” It is now August, and with his poll numbers falling in the Democratic presidential primary, P. Warlord has decided that he is entitled to abuse members of the press who cannot be relied upon to provide favorable coverage.  P. Warlord’s campaign ejected a reporter from a speech at Benedict College, a historically black college, on Tuesday afternoon.  It almost certainly was a racially motivated action.

“Steven”

Several minutes after the 3:00 p.m. event had been scheduled to begin, a campus police officer approached this reporter and told him to leave.  A member of the Warlord’s campaign staff, who said his name was “Steven”  was dressed in skinny jeans and a pastel shirt (he would not give a last name).  “Steven” said that the reporter was being ejected for being “disruptive” at past events.  With the reporter’s gaydar needle pegged, “Steven” threatened that he either leave voluntarily or be “officially uninvited” from campus, suggesting arrest.

The only interaction between the reporter and P. Warlord was a question during a press gaggle on Monday when he asked the Democratic presidential hopeful  whether misquoting Trump’s comments on riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 was consistent with P. Warlord’s pledge to “heal” and not “inflame” divisions in this country.  “Steven” offered that questions like this are “just bad energy” that needs to be “purged.”

During a town hall that aired on MSNBC last year, P. Warlord was asked by a college professor what he would do to protect press freedom. He said: “If we don’t have a free press, if we cannot make informed decisions at the ballot box, if we can’t hold people like me accountable, and make sure that we’re held honest to the promises that we made, to the job that we’re performing in these positions of public trust, we’ll lose the essence of our democracy and the best defense against tyranny.”  The college professor responded, “Isn’t a well-armed citizenry as described in the 2nd Amendment the best defense against tyranny?”

 

The Psychedelic Warlord first turned purple then vaporized, only to reappear in El Paso.
