They’ve been getting T-bagged since 11/2016.
You mean because he is taking away from the defense budget that you people have always been big fans of?
I love talking about the wall, the economy and the corruption. Trump is converting you to conservatives without you even realizing it.
E is a ventriloquist.
Who does the Constitution put in charge of budgets?
I'm the same old me. Conservative, liberal... I'm sure they mean a lot to you knuckleheads who listen to crazy - angry news. But to me they are just words amigo.
Labels aside. I think Trump is sucking, but I'm worried there won't be a viable alternative to vote for. That's my politics.
No need to go conservative liberal. Classical lib works better.
Antifa Lunges for Idiot Supremacy – Interrupts an ‘Ending Racism’ Event and Calls a Black Man a White Racist
Posted at 9:30 pm on September 07, 2019 by Alex Parker
In life, you can make sense.
Or, you can put on a mask, run around and hurt people and break things, use words you can’t define, and make statements that are stunningly daft.
For 40 folks in Pennsylvania, the superior option was obvious.
Daryl Davis — a black man who’s worked to rehabilitatemembers of white supremacist groups — was speaking at an “Ending Racism” event which was meant to “create dialogue and promote viewpoint diversity.”
Not to over three dozen protestors: They were there to — among other things — call Daryl a “white supremacist.”
I’ll say that again: As reported by The Daily Caller, 40 members of Antifa showed up to protest an Ending Racism event and call a black man — upon whom, according to his website, was conferred the Bridge Builder Award — a white supremacist.
Some Antifa members called Davis, who is black, a white supremacist for attending the event.
Actually, maybe it does make sense: Perhaps Antifa understands the English language to work in opposites — after all, it’s a pro-fascism organization which, for some reason unknown, calls itself “anti-fa…”
Therefore, perhaps they took “Ending Racism” to be “StartingRacism.” And they meant to let black person Daryl know he’s not a racist white person.
In that case, please allow me to say: Antifa is a group of geniuses.
They are in no way morons.
Now back to language the normal way–
Here’s what Daryl told the Daily Caller News Foundation:
“I laughed. I thought it was funny. What it proves is they had no point. They had no evidence of anything. When it boils down to just name-calling people, and you don’t show any proof and you refuse to talk to them…they refused to even come in. There were no Klansman or Neo-Nazis in there or alt-right people.”
Antifa was welcomed to the afterparty, but they were party poopers.
“They [Antifa] want to shut down any dialogue with racists, people who have differing views of their own. Their thing is, you know, just beat it out of them or make it impossible for them to meet.
“A lot of these groups – let’s take Black Lives Matter, let’s take Antifa, let’s take the Ku Klux Klan – none of these groups today are centralized. They’re all autonomous … It’s the same thing with Antifa.
“Half of them may believe (in) what they’re doing…they may believe that they’re doing some good. But I truly believe that the other half of them are simply into anarchy … They’re anti-racist, so they’re gonna go beat up people who are racist – but this is the exact same thing the racists do. They’re not behaving any differently.”
On Facebook, the black Caucasian who hates himself and others (not) like him noted that he’d been called lots of names before, but “white supremacist” takes the cake.
And in case you’re wondering why the “#MINDS New Jersey: Ending Racism, Violence and Authoritarianism” event was held at a center in Pennsylvania: It was originally planned for a theater in New Jersey.
But Anti-fascism threatened to burn it down.
Way to go, everybody.

Chick-fil-A opens first international store as eager customers step over bodies of 'die-in' protesters
By Thomas Lifson
There is something magical and quietly hilarious about the ability of a fast food chain peddling chicken to arouse deep outrage from the alienated few and yet record-setting patronage by the greater public. Chick-fil-A manages to do the seemingly impossible: it enjoys the largest per store sales of any fast food chain, despite being closed on Sundays. And that religious observance is related to the hatred directed at it from those who resent its support for causes related to promoting biblical constraints on sexuality.
Yesterday, Chick-fil-A ventured beyond the borders of the United States for the very first time, opening the first of 15 planned stores in the Greater Toronto Area, and militant homosexuals as well as animal righties attempted to obstruct customers, some of whom started lining up as early as 6:30 A.M., from entering the store. Fox News reported:
The grand opening of Chick-fil-A's first international location in Toronto was met by a grand protest Friday by LGBTQ activists, who argued that the chicken-centric chain owner's historically antigay policies will clash with the culture of Canada's largest city.
Protestors caused a commotion as soon as the restaurant opened its doors at 10:30 a.m., chanting "shame" and "cluck you," CBC News reports.
"Hey hey, ho ho, Homophobia's got to go," activists can be heard shouting in video shared to Twitter by BlogTo. (snip)
"We won't allow hateful rhetoric to be here," Justin Khan of local LGBTQ organization The 519 told CBC. "The fact that Chick-fil-A is opening on the streets of Toronto is something that is quite alarming."
Founded in 1967, the biblical values of Chick-fil-A's management strategy have long stirred controversy. Company chairman and CEO Dan Cathy has voiced his opposition to same-sex marriage, but Chick-fil-A says it doesn't have a political or social agenda. The company says that in 2017, it donated $1.6 million to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a group that is overtly against gay marriage, for sports camps for inner-city youth. It also donated $150,000 to the Salvation Army, which has also been accused of discrimination.
People observing the tenets of their religion are targeted. How is this not religious bigotry?
The display of self-righteous anger backfired, as customers calmly stepped over and around the bodies attempting to block access and entered to enjoy delicious chicken sandwiches and nuggets.
Twitter video screen grabs.
I recall that something similar happened when the company opened its first store in Manhattan; Mayor deBlasio fumed, protestors gathered, but so did crowds of customers, and after the protestors went away, the crowds continued to mob the store.
Back in May of 2016, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called for a boycott against the popular restaurant chain Chick-fil-A because he didn't like it that Dan Cathy, the chain's owner, would talk about his family's Christian beliefs, including traditional marriage.
This, despite the fact that the company doesn't discriminate against anyone, and has proven to be an asset to every community in which they have a location. (snip)
Chick-fil-A now [October 2018] operates four locations in New York City. When the first restaurant opened, it was reported New Yorkers stood in lines around the corner to get a taste of their signature chicken sandwich.
The chain just opened their largest restaurant in the country in Lower Manhattan's financial district. The new facility has five levels, innovative ordering technology, seating for 140 guests and an open-air rooftop dining experience, according to the company's website.
Luke Cook, the local franchise owner, said he plans to employ 150 people.
Perhaps frustrated by their ineffectiveness, protesters escalated:
A Manhattan Chick-fil-A was vandalized during Sunday's [June 23, 2019] Pride parade, according to photos provided to the Daily Caller.
The photos, taken of the Chick-fil-A location on 46th Street in Manhattan, show the words "F**k haters" scrawled across the windows and an "X" in red duct tape bearing the same words. There was also a small sign reading "LOVE is a terrible thing to waste" propped against the door.
The craziness of damaging property and spewing obscenity to "defend love" is obvious to most people. At this point, the haters of Chick-fil-A are driving more customers to the object of their hate. They can't get beyond their own woundedness to see how repulsive they are. They certainly have driven me to patronize the company — at first out of curiosity over all the fuss, and then because the food and service are both outstanding.
I figured you'd come around on that one...
Classical lib? Can you point me to a website where I can read what that even is?
Like FDR new deal lib... less so now that I live in a place totally controlled by woke minded progressives. Although if you were talking classical like Teddy Roosevelt, well I will admit I do feel an admiration for him.
Very little in common with the current leftist progressivism. https://mises.org/library/what-classical-liberalism
See - you've been a liberal all these years and you didn't know it.
Ive always been a classical liberal.
I knew it, know it, and live it.
What do you do to "live it"?
Who is John Galt?

The Trayvon Hoax That Divided America Is About to Be Exposed
By Jack Cashill
On Monday. September 16, Joel Gilbert will preview his new documentary, “The Trayvon Hoax,” in the 500-seat Ballroom of the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The screening begins at 1 p.m. Admission is free, and Gilbert is encouraging all interested parties to come see for themselves what could be a game-changer in the way the media report racially-charged news. Gilbert’s findings are that significant.
Having written a book on the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin — If I Had a Son-- I have been following Gilbert’s progress with interest. In fact, I introduced Gilbert to George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin. Those who have followed the case know that not since the Scottsboro boys has any ordinary citizen endured the kind of malicious and conspicuously false reporting Zimmerman has. My hope was that Gilbert would set the record straight.
Gilbert has done that and more. In the course of his relentless research into the shooting and subsequent trial, I can say without risk of overstatement that he has unearthed a legal fraud the likes of which I know no parallel. Not only has Gilbert discovered it, but he has also proved it six ways from Sunday, including DNA and handwriting analysis.

If I were Trayvon Martin’s parents or his family’s attorneys, I would be very nervous right now. If I were Florida state attorneys who prosecuted the case, I would be more nervous still. And if I were the media who covered this case — are you listening Matt Gutman and Lisa Bloom? — I would prepare to be mortified. The coverage of this case was a disgrace from day one.
To uncover this staggering fraud, Gilbert did what reporters used to do. He immersed himself in the milieu that produced Trayvon Martin. He mastered the patois of urban black Miami. He reviewed the thousands of text messages, tweets, Facebook and Instagram postings sent and received by Martin and his friends. He interviewed George Zimmerman and heard, from the only person who knew, Martin’s final words, words that revealed the cause of Martin’s tragic downward spiral.
Gilbert did some serious shoe leather reporting as well. He visited all the relevant Miami-area high schools, the neighborhoods where Martin and his friends hung out, the streets of Miami’s Little Haiti, and the town community where Martin died.
At the end of his research, Gilbert knew Trayvon Martin better than his parents did, literally. As their deposition revealed, they had no idea how Martin’s life had descended into a violent mix of street fighting, guns, drugs, burglary, and sex. Although both parents made good incomes, their separate lives created an abyss where a home should have been, and their once promising son fell straight to the bottom of it.
Unwilling to accept their own responsibility for his demise, they took the bait promised by the family attorneys and sweetened by the media and projected their guilt on to George Zimmerman. Although an Obama supporter and civil rights activist, the half-Hispanic Zimmerman proved to be just white enough to play the “racist” killer role in the unholy melodrama that followed.
In the documentary and even more so in the accompanying book of the same name, the Trayvon Hoax, Gilbert shows how politicians — are you listening Andrew Gillum and Barack Obama? -- exploited the ensuing racial divisions to further their political goals. The gratuitous anger the media and political class stoked throughout this case led to the creation of Black Lives Matter, the parallel Ferguson hoax, and a crime wave that that has devastated black America.
All of this was based on one spectacular fraud, and Joel Gilbert uncovered it. The film trailer and website will be live on Thursday, Sept 12. “The Trayvon Hoax,” book and documentary, will be released and available on Amazon later this week in DVD, digital, paperback, and ebook formats.
