Covington Catholic Student’s Lawyers Respond to WaPo’s Friday Night Walk-Back

It’s probably safe to say that attorneys L. Lin Wood and Todd McMurtry are not impressed with the Washington Post’s weak Friday night walk-back on the Covington kids controversy. In a scathing statement, the lawyers vowed to “aggressively continue” their efforts to hold the newspaper accountable.

Denver Airport Installs a Talking Gargoyle That Says “Welcome to the Illuminati Headquarters, I Mean, Denver International Airport!”

Denver International Airport has just installed a brand new animatronic talking gargoyle statue that is making fun of the “conspiracy theories” about the airport. As you can see in this video, the animatronic statue is incredibly lifelike, and it must have cost a fortune to create. The airport claims that the goal is to get more people to travel through Denver, but the truth is that when you are booking a flight there really isn’t much choice. Denver is one of the main national hubs for air traffic, and I have personally changed plans there countless times. Nobody is going to add extra time to their flight plans just to go through Denver if they don’t need to do so. In the end, this sort of a promotion is very funny, but it isn’t going to change consumer behavior. So is there something else going on? Could it be possible that they are attempting to use humor to mask what is really going on at the airport?

Needless to say, a lot of travelers are absolutely stunned when this gargoyle statue suddenly comes to life and starts chatting with them. The following comes from Fox News…

The following comes from an article by Stefan Stanford…

While the entire island of Manhattan, one of the most densely populated cities in the country and home to more than 1.6 million people, sits on 22.82 square miles of land, the Denver International Airport itself is more than twice the size of Manhattan island at 54.05 square miles. In fact, as the Denver Channel reports, the DIA is also bigger than the cities of San Francisco and Miami as well. All that size just for an airport?

Easily the largest airport in America and by far, dwarfing its nearest competition at Chicago’s O’Hare, Atlanta’s Hartsfield and New York’s JFK by some 25,000 acres, DIA has also long been in the public’s eye as potentially being much more than just an airport.

Containing swastika shaped runways, apocalyptic, end-of-the-world artwork throughout the airport, infamous construction problems which delayed the opening of the airport for years, gargoyles sitting within suitcases on the walls and the demonic blue horse that sits outside of the airport nicknamed ‘Blucifer’ due to its haunting red eye, that ‘piece of art’ actually fell upon and killed the artist who was creating it being just a few of the very incredibly strange things and events surrounding this airport.

And as this October of 2016 story over at the Denver Post reports, due to the mysterious time capsule ‘capstone’that sits at the airport which references a “New World Airport Commission”, something that doesn’t even exist, the mystery surrounding the airport continues to grow.

Florida Lawmaker Introduces ‘Stop Social Media Censorship Act’ To Protect Free Speech Online

Florida State Senator Joe Gruters (R) has introduced a bill to protect free speech on social media and fine the biggest sites a minimum of $75,000 in statutory damages if they delete or censor a user’s religious or political speech.

The law would only apply to social media sites with “more than 75 million subscribers” which are “open to the public” and from their inception have “not been specifically affiliated with any one religion or political party.”

The bill also prohibits large social media sites from citing so-called “hate speech” as a justification for political and religious censorship and authorizes the Attorney General to “bring a civil cause of action … on behalf of a social media website user who resides in this state and whose religious speech or political speech has been censored…”

Intel CPUs Afflicted With Simple Data-Spewing Spec-Exec Vulnerability

‘Leakage … is visible in all Intel generations starting from first-gen Core CPUs

Further demonstrating the computational risks of looking into the future, boffins have found another way to abuse speculative execution in Intel CPUs to steal secrets and other data from running applications.

This security shortcoming can be potentially exploited by malicious JavaScript within a web browser tab, or malware running on a system, or rogue logged-in users, to extract passwords, keys, and other data from memory. An attacker therefore requires some kind of foothold in your machine in order to pull this off. The vulnerability, it appears, cannot be easily fixed or mitigated without significant redesign work at the silicon level…

The researchers also examined Arm and AMD processor cores, but found they did not exhibit similar behavior.

“We have discovered a novel microarchitectural leakage which reveals critical information about physical page mappings to user space processes,” the researchers explain.

“The leakage can be exploited by a limited set of instructions, which is visible in all Intel generations starting from the 1st generation of Intel Core processors, independent of the OS and also works from within virtual machines and sandboxed environments.”

Judge Rejects WikiLeaks Leaker Chelsea Manning’s Efforts to Avoid Testifying Before Grand Jury in Julian Assange Case

A judge this morning rejected an effort from Chelsea Manning to quash a subpoena demanding that she testify before a grand jury in an apparent investigation of WikiLeaks and its founder.

But Manning said after the hearing in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, that she will continue her legal efforts to avoid giving testimony.

‘I’m going to be back here tomorrow’ to continue fighting the subpoena, Manning said as she left the courthouse.

Moderate Dems Fume Over Ocasio-Cortez ‘List’ Threat

Moderate Democrats are fuming over New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s closed-door warning last week that Democrats who vote with Republicans are “putting themselves on a list” — a comment interpreted as a primary challenge threat.

Ocasio-Cortez has since downplayed her comments, made in the wake of 26 Democrats joining Republicans to vote for a provision requiring Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be notified if illegal immigrants attempt to purchase guns.

Ocasio-Cortez and Her Chief of Staff ‘Could be Facing Jail Time’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a top aide appear to control an outside PAC credited with being the central force behind her June 2018 primary victory

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti obtained majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, according to archived copies of the group’s website, and the two appear to retain their control of the group, according to corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

If the Federal Election Commission (FEC) finds that the New York Democrat’s campaign operated in affiliation with the PAC, which had raised more than $1.8 million before her June 2018 primary, it would open them up to “massive reporting violations, probably at least some illegal contribution violations exceeding the lawful limits,” former FEC commissioner Brad Smith said.

“If the facts as alleged are true, and a candidate had control over a PAC that was working to get that candidate elected, then that candidate is potentially in very big trouble and may have engaged in multiple violations of federal campaign finance law, including receiving excessive contributions,” former Republican FEC commissioner Hans von Spakovsky told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

And fellow former FEC commissioner Brad Smith told TheDCNF that if “a complaint were filed, I would think it would trigger a serious investigation.” He also noted that such a probe could potentially result in jail time for Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff, Chakrabarti.

Somali Gangs Battle in Minneapolis; Somalis Demand That Cops Do Something

Let’s start by stipulating that not every newcomer to America is a violent criminal bringing old ethnic and religious conflicts to the New World; nor is he a predatory opportunist, happy to take advantage of the stable, trusting, and yes, welcoming culture he finds. Every country has its social customs and unwritten rules, and often newcomers misinterpret them as weakness.

Trump Slams ‘Stone Cold Crazy’ Democrats Over “Big, Fat, Fishing Expedition”

“They won’t get ANYTHING done for our Country!”

President Trump blasted Democrats Tuesday as ‘stone cold crazy’ after it was announced that the opposition party plans to vastly widen its obstruction and harassment campaign by investigating his White House, campaign and family businesses.

Trump declared that Democrats are changing their approach to obstructing his presidency as “they realize the only Collusion with Russia was done by Crooked Hillary Clinton”.

“Nadler, Schiff and the Dem heads of the Committees have gone stone cold CRAZY” Trump added, citing House Judiciary Committee document requests to dozens of his associates as “81 letters sent to innocent people to harass them”.

“They won’t get ANYTHING done for our Country!” the President exclaimed.

Will 5G Cell Phone Technology Lead to Dramatic Population Reduction as Large Numbers of Men Become Sterile?

5G uses between 24 to 90 gigahertz frequency

I know that the title of this article is controversial, but the scientific research that has been done in this area inevitably leads us to some conclusions that are inescapable. Our current cell phone technology produces electromagnetic radiation that damages male fertility, and the radiation produced by the new 5G technology will be much more powerful and therefore much more dangerous. But most people don’t know about this. Instead, most people are greatly looking forward to the rollout of 5G technology because it will be up to 100 times faster than our current 4G technology, and who wouldn’t want that?

The big cell phone companies will be spending hundreds of billions of dollars to install hundreds of thousands of new 5G antennas, and every single one of those antennas will be constantly emitting very powerful electromagnetic radiation. Since we can’t see the radiation, to many people the threat does not seem real, but the truth is that if you live in a major urban area you are constantly being bombarded by it. And once the new 5G network is completely rolled out, you would literally have to live in the middle of nowhere to get away from it completely…

In addition, 5G technology is “ultra high frequency and ultra high intensity”…

5G cell towers are more dangerous than other cell towers for two main reasons. First, compared to earlier versions, 5G is ultra high frequency and ultra high intensity. 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G use between 1 to 5 gigahertz frequency. 5G uses between 24 to 90 gigahertz frequency. Within the RF Radiation portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, the higher the frequency the more dangerous it is to living organisms.

So basically the radiation that we will constantly be absorbing will be much, much, much more powerful than before, and the sources emitting the radiation will be much closer to us.

[Comment: 5G — for the “cattle class” (what luciferian elite call the public) it means 5 times the radiation as before.]

Google to Ban Political Ads Ahead of Federal Election, Citing New Transparency Rules

Google is banning political advertising on its platforms ahead of the Canadian federal election because of new ad transparency rules it says would be too challenging to comply with.

The decision comes in response to the Liberals’ signature election measure, Bill C-76, which passed in December. Among other things, it requires online platforms to keep a registry of all political and partisan ads they directly or indirectly publish. The penalties for not doing so include fines and possible jail time.

“We’ve come to the decision that the best way for Google to comply with the Elections Act in the 2019 election cycle is actually to stop accepting elections ads as defined in the legislation,” said Colin McKay, Google Canada’s head of public policy and government relations. “It is painful for us.”

A Project to Transform France

After sixteen Saturday demonstrations by the “yellow vests,” who began in November by protesting French President Emmanuel Macron’s increase in fuel prices, the controversy seems to have taken a darker turn.

That seems to have come to light on February 13, when a small group of demonstrators started hurling insults at a French Jewish philosopher, Alain Finkielkraut — who was born in and lives in Paris — after they spotted him on a sidewalk. One man, shouted, “Shut up, dirty Zionist sh*t,” “Go home to Tel Aviv,” “France is ours,” “God will punish you.” A cameraman filmed the incident, then shared the video on social networks. A scandal ensued. The “yellow vests” movement as a whole was immediately accused by the French government of anti-Semitism and “fascism”.

Finkielkraut claimed that he had not been attacked as a Jew, but as a supporter of the State of Israel. He then added that the man who had insulted him did not speak like a “yellow vest” and that the words “God will punish you” is an expression from “Islamic rhetoric”. Police who watched the video identified the man as a radicalized Muslim, and the next day arrested him.

Letter From Brussels: The Belly of the Eurobeast

by Srdja Trifkovic

Visiting Brussels is like visiting an acquaintance who is well informed but whose company you don’t enjoy. It is not fun but it can be useful. The European Union is in a state of latent crisis which has the potential to turn acute at any moment, but the massive bureaucratic machine in its capital pretends it is business as usual. Moscow felt this way in the late 1980’s.

The mandarins at the top are aware that the peasants are restive. Their current line is that the European Union is under threat from “populists,” evil people who first spread and then exploit supposedly irrational phobias on immigration, economy, sovereignty etc. These “far-right, racist nationalists” risk making the EU “ungovernable” if they win big at the European elections in May, but voters may yet turn to them in revolt against the mainstream European politicians, economic commissioner Pierre Moscovici warned a week ago. “Europe is strong but the European idea is under threat,” he said, adding the EU was “threatened by political disagreements between member states on the meaning of the European project.” The challenge, Mr Moscovici said, isn’t’ just to save Europe but to “remake” it: “We need to give the European idea new meaning and ambition . . . There is tension between those who want to continue the European adventure and those who are fighting it, and it’s a frontal battle.”

To refresh my understanding of “the European adventure” as defined by M. Moscovici and his ilk, I walked past the project’s headquarters on Monday morning. There is a strange statue outside the soon-to-be-contested European Parliament. A heroic female figure (supposedly “Europa Goddess,” according to the official EU guidebook) is triumphantly holding high the euro sign; a man and a woman, emerging from the lower folds of her tunic, vainly reach up with their arms. Whatever the meaning of this eerie image, it is unlikely to inspire the masses with “new meaning and ambition.” The statue, albeit on a more modest scale and grimmer in spirit, exudes the temperament of the 1937 “Worker and Kolkhoz Woman” in Moscow. This is unsurprising: the essence of the EU has always been socialist and (velvet) totalitarian…

London Man Seems to be Free of HIV in Second Such Case

SEATTLE (AP) — A London man appears to be free of the virus that causes AIDS after a stem cell transplant, the second success including the “Berlin patient,” doctors reported.

The therapy had an early success with Timothy Ray Brown, a U.S. man treated in Germany who is 12 years post-transplant and still free of HIV. Until now, Brown is the only person thought to have been cured of infection with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Such transplants are dangerous and have failed in other patients. They’re also impractical to try to cure the millions already infected.

PM May Urged to Whip Tory MPs to Back No-Deal Brexit in Face of Losing Vote

Prime Minister Theresa May has been urged to whip her MPs into stopping Parliament taking a no-deal Brexit off the table.

Facing threat of mass resignations from Tory Remainers, Mrs May made major concessions to the progressive elements in her party last week by allowing the Commons a potential vote on stopping a clean exit from the European Union, as well as delaying Brexit should her Withdrawal Agreement be voted down for a second time on March 12th.

Tory Eurosceptics, including two Cabinet ministers, believe that the prime minister will be put in a weak negotiating position with the EU if her agreement fails and her own MPs reject a no-deal exit — which is the legal default should a deal not be agreed by Brexit day on March 29th — with one Cabinet minister telling The Telegraph that whipping the MPs was the “right approach.”

No Negotiating With Iran’s Mullahs

The best predictor of the future is the past. The fanatic Mullahs are proven liars. Their record is one of deception, dissimulation, treachery, violence and much more. These Quran-trained and directed agents of a wrathful Allah must never be trusted. They are master schemers. They have been in the business of scheming for centuries. While Trump has perfected the “Art of the Deal,” the Mullahs have perfected the art of deception. History will prove that President Trump did the right thing.

In dealing with the ever-cheating and conniving Mullahs, the President needs to realize that these vile men of Allah are also long-term planners. They have messianic plans to rule the world someday. They are also superb practitioners of the art of cheating. In this practice, like in the game of poker, much depends on how one plays their hand. In the game of deal-making, beating around the bush is a standard operating procedure. They know that weak-willed Westerners feel productive when they “talk,” and engage in “negotiations.” These activities do nothing; but then again, accomplishing anything other than advancing their own careers and generating an undeserved sense of self-importance is never the goal of pinheaded diplomats.

The villain Mullahs have been deceiving and playing the Iranian people, particularly the masses of the religiously fanatic, long before either Israel or the U.S. existed. They are very good at their game. For as long as there are donkeys there will be those who ride them is a Persian saying. That should explain the rule of the Mullahs. They ride, they have been riding for centuries, and they like it.

Another Missile Crisis in the Making?

by Servando Gonzalez

Putin’s words have made some people think that we are close to facing another Missile Crisis similar to the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962. Unfortunately, however, this will not be another missile crisis. This crisis, if President Trump does not keep on a short leash the eugenicist madmen we still have at the highest levels of the U.S. Government and the Pentagon[4], will be a true nuclear crisis, not a hoax like the one we experienced in 1962. This crisis, if we get to that point, will be a real, true and dangerous nuclear crisis.

Now, why do the globalist conspirators’ hold this animosity against Russia? Are they willing to nuke Moscow because the Russians have refused to change it into another San Francisco? Are they going to destroy Russia because Russian doctors have not assassinated 6 million unborn and born babies in the past ten years? Does the fact that the Russians don’t have a Marxist graduated tax, but a flat one, anger them so much that they want to send the Russian people to a mass nuclear grave? Will they use the threat of nuclear war to force the Russians to change St. Petersburg into a crime-ridden city such as Chicago or Oakland? Or the fact that Russians are not under the exploitation of Big Pharma and Big Med make them nervous because of the bad example? Or the real problem is that, adding insult to injury, Russia has not allowed an invasion of illegal aliens to trespass its borders?

Well, those are questions that may explain why the CFR globalist conspirators and their agents hate Russia so much. My guess, however, is that the main reason for their hatred and fear is because the Russians have decided not to join the conspirator’s New World Order. Moreover, I think that the true purpose of the never-ending Mueller investigation has nothing to do with the past election, but to drive a wedge between Trump and Putin to avoid an alliance that scares the globalist conspirators. That is the collusion they fear the most. Unfortunately, the real traitors have been successful in putting President Trump is a position in which any Russian-friendly action is seen as close to treason.

In Venezuela, Inmates Are Being Released, Uniformed, Armed, And Sent to Kill Protesters

Dear fellows, the title of this article is intended to alert what happens in a real crisis. Criminals have been released in Venezuela and given guns to shoot the demonstrators who are protesting against Maduro.

This is another localized end-of-days event that is incredibly dangerous.

The criminals that conform the band inside the government Cuban-infiltrated and controlled “institutions” have opened the doors of Hell itself. (Anyone who has seen footage of what happens inside the Venezuelan jails will understand). They released the inmates and sent them to fight the demonstrators.

They let the inmates out, gave uniforms and weapons to fight against the demonstrators. This is happening, and there are proofs of that published in the web by the infamous Varela, prison “minister”.

Over 25 murdered persons, and over 100 injured, all of them by gunshots. I am not going to turn this article in a politic debate. Far from that.

I would love to make sure you understand that this happens.

The possibilities of it happening perhaps are low, but the consequences of such event are extremely high once it occurs.

MPs Demand Britain Double Refugee Intake, Import Fivefold More From Africa

A cross-party committee of MPs has demanded Britain double the number of refugees imported directly from the third world, and to expand the working rights of asylum seekers.

In a report published Tuesday, the International Development Committee argued that both moves would see Britain set a good example, policy-wise, to governments in sub-Saharan Africa.

Canada: Court Rules Father Cannot Halt Daughter’s Transgender Hormones— or Even Call Her a Girl

Last Wednesday, the Supreme Court of British Columbia (B.C.) ruled that a 14-year-old girl may undergo transgender hormone “treatments” to support her transgender identity as a boy — without her father’s consent. The court went so far as to threaten to penalize the father’s speech. If he calls his daughter a girl, that would constitute “family violence,” which would be punishable by law.

UK: School Stops LGBT Lessons After Backlash From Angry Muslim Parents

A primary school in Birmingham, England, has halted LGBT lessons after 600 pupils were reportedly taken out of classes by furious Muslim parents upset at homosexuality being “aggressively” taught to their children, RT.com writes.

Parkfield Community School has been forced to suspend its ‘No Outsiders’ classes until after Easter, while a consultation takes place with parents. Tensions between the school and parents have escalated due to a row surrounding LGBT lifestyles being taught in classrooms.

Why Leftists Love Stickin’ it to Christianity

A woman called the Rush Limbaugh radio show to ask why New York legislators shockingly gave killing babies a standing ovation. Rush said the main reason is leftists hate Christians and traditional Americans. Rush said, “They love stickin’ it to us.”

The Democratic party has become extreme leftist. They hate America’s Christian founding and all things wholesome and good. Their hatred comes from a spirit which is anti-Jesus Christ. Here Lloyd goes again suggesting spiritual forces are at work in the political discord.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Before writing me off as a Christian nut, please hear me out.

  1. Icelandic Punk band in Eurovision:

    Clearly, too much free time and spending money from living in mom’s basement.

    When Scandinavians had to struggle to survive they produced Vikings, now they produce this?

    • To me, this idea with the Vikings is very doubtful. Normal people will not survive in a nasty climate and semi-annual darkness. I do not believe in their bloodthirstiness. They could conquer Italy or France or Tunisia, and not sit among the snowdrifts.
      My husband is from northern Russia. In this region live Russian escapists, who fled from the Tatar-Mongol yoke and other conquerors.
      Because there are no idiots to conquer these forests and swamps.

        • However, in Italy they do not speak any of the Scandinavian languages. Capture territory was not.
          They even have national songs about how good it is to fish in cold water, and not about military campaigns.

        • (it is not the whole geographical peninsula of Italy). Apart from this, Normans are a historical people, with kings and reigns, coming from a tiny region of what today is within the French country (Normandy). They also conquered most of England (against the Anglo-Saxons). There is also huge literature and some movies about the Normans, for example, the novel Ivanhoe (1820) and a movie titled “The War Lord” (1965). I could think of many historical facts about the Normans: William 1st The Conqueror, the Kingdom of Sicily, and also but most important Frederick II (who was a descendant of the Normans).

          What about the Vikings? Their importance in history is much more a modern fictional myth. Not really a lot of historians that named them back in medieval times.

      • When I think of Vikings, I don’t really think about the tales of bloodthirstiness.

        I think more of their adventurousness and spirit of exploration.
        Also, their strong sense of identity and willingness to defend themselves.

        I don’t see any of these things in this so-called ‘music’ and these band members of modern Iceland.

          • Point taken.

            I suppose using the term Viking is no longer popular to portray the spirit of a lost people.

          • Or the spirit of a people who could invade seacoast towns with impunity, taking what and whom they wanted. See Balitmore, Ireland as an example.

  2. What kind of Russia is written in the article?
    The man apparently does not know the realities.
    The level of social degradation at the very bottom of the lowest circle of hell.
    Putin and his junta are the main destroyers of the Russian people.

  3. re: School Stops Transgender Lessons… When I saw that video I wondered who would win, would the UK govt cave to the LGBTQ lobby demanding the sex lessons to primary schoolers continue, or would they cave to the Muslim parents demanding an end to the ‘lessons’. Talk about a choice made in Hell. I realized immediately that of course the cowardly value-neutral UK govt would cave to the Muslims.

    • Rule #1 in Diversityland: Islam trumps everything else.

      I’ve been observing this phenomenon for more than a decade. Women trump men, brown people trump women, homosexuals trump brown people, trannies trump homosexuals, and Islam trumps all.

      Whoops, I left out cripples. They can be slipped into that trump-chain somewhere. But not above Islam.

  4. Re: Why Leftists Love Sticking It to us… It’s much the same elsewhere though admittedly it’s more extreme in the US. In Canada the Liberal Party hates patriotism in any form, and all Christian churches, and will do anything, accept anything to celebrate Islam & diversity. In the UK you can be arrested for hatespeech if your patriotic speech is too spirited, ditto in Germany. You can’t even display a national flag in Germany. Again, much the same in France. This is the real reason behind the gilets jaunes protests, and also why 93% of all elections in recent years in Europe have gone to populist parties.

  5. Good to see Moslem parents having the moral courage to object to forced LGBT lessons aimed at their school kids. Too bad our dying Christianity has turned into moral jellyfish.

    • Yes, it is good to see this development.
      I’m surprised the moslems waited this long though.

      Also, yes it is disheartening to see much apathy from Western Christianity on this subject.

  6. Re: Clinton an Bloomberg won’t run for President.
    They won’t have tom they will simply walk into the White House and take office after voter canvassing delivers the election to them and having previously disposed of the Bernie sanders that never worked properly to begin with. (P-C brand sanders are the best along with the rest of its line of wood working tools).

    • As a wood worker myself, I understood the hilarious twisting of words here.

      Bernie ‘sanders’
      P-C = Porter Cable power tools

      Well done!!

  7. ** After sixteen Saturday demonstrations by the “yellow vests,” who began in November by protesting French President Emmanuel Macron’s increase in fuel prices, the controversy seems to have taken a darker turn. **

    The “darker turn” does not refer to the yellow vests. Guy Millière, the author of the referenced article, makes clear that it’s Macron who’s trying to stir the anti-Semitism pot:

    “Investigations have begun but nothing so far has shown any relationship between the ‘yellow vests’ movement and any of these anti-Semitic acts. The French government nevertheless continues accusing the ‘yellow vests’ of being at least partly to blame.” (Link omitted.)

    In a related story somewhere on the internet (SOTI) — ZeroHedge, actually — it appears the French government wants to prosecute Marine Le Pen for 2015 Anti-ISIS Tweets. This led to a commenter observing that the government that is concerned that children may see upsetting material on the internet is nonetheless ok with blinding and mutilating yellow vest demonstrators.

    I’m not sure that the demonstrator’s losing a hand didn’t involve misjudgment on his part but, still, firing flash bang grenades at protestors? As we know, the blinding part is all too real and is intentional as an article here at GoV has made clear.

  8. ** In dealing with the ever-cheating and conniving [Iranian] Mullahs, the President needs to realize that these vile men of Allah are also long-term planners. They have messianic plans to rule the world someday. They are also superb practitioners of the art of cheating. **

    Nominated for 2019 Overheated Rhetoric Prize.

    By way of adding some perspective, the US, UK, France, Germany, Denmark, Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar and other members of Operation Apparent Resolve have recruited, imported, financed, trained, armed, supplied, and supported tens of thousands of scum-of-the-earth jihadis and “rebels” in Syria all in violation of international law. The death toll is over 500,000 civilians and thousands more troops and Syrian cities have been laid waste. Iran has supported Syria with modest troop numbers at the invitation of the SAG. The death and destruction in Syria cannot be laid at their feet.

    And if the Iranian brand of Islam is so toxic then let’s take a close look at Saudi Arabia that has done a magnificent job of promoting salafism around the world.
