Video: Media So Trump-Deranged, It Ignores Manchester Aftermath






I guess it wasn't my FOX News-biased imagination that CNN was spending more time on Our Grand Nagus' supposed Russian Connection than the Manchester Bombing.

Massacre in Manchester

(Image of some of the casualties from The Sun)

Yesterday was a warm sunny day here in western Washington State.  So I took advantage of the dry weather and a day off to get our house ready for summer--cleaning the grill and the lawn furniture.

Across the pond, Salman Abedi the Asshole had other summer plans--self-detonating at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, UK.

There's plenty of information on the who, what & when of the attack on most news sites. (Although, this morning I noticed CNN spent more time discussing Our Grand Nagus' supposed Russian Connection).  Even The Seattle Times ran the story.

Britain raised Terror Threat Level to "critical."

In addition to predictably raising the threat level, this latest terrorist attack is--yet again--following the same tiresome trajectory.

We're being told we should get use to scenes like this:

(Image from:  The Guardian chiding us not to "lash out")
Or that something other than Islamic jihad is to blame--like sexism.

Meanwhile, leftists are attempting to ward off Islamic evil with their Candlelight Magic--again.

I'm with Todd Starnes on this:  I'm sick of news anchors telling us not to rush to judgement on terror attacks.

Of course, Abedi the Asshole was yet another "known wolf."

This is just one factor in what The Diplomad calls The No Surprise List.

And finally, for this initial post anyway, Mark Steyn continues with the social condemnation of the weak-willed West in his latest article:  "Dangerous Woman" Meets Dangerous Man.

Unless our limp leaders, and the snowflake sheeple truly stand up against the jihadi threat, we'll continue to endure scenes like this...

(Image from:  The Sun's article on doctors trying to save the lives of victims--including children)

...along with the predictable post-attack procedure...

(Image from:  Starecat.com, which I originally saw on The Declination)

...whether we're "use to it" or not.

Robert Spencer's Drink Spiked

(Image found on Robert Spencer's Facebook page)

A couple days ago, word got out that Robert Spencer, creator of Jihad Watch, and author of several anti-jihadist books, was poisoned after giving a speech in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Here's what happened in his own words.

Mark Steyn continually points out that leftists and jihadists are "...in the 'shut up' business..."  and merely two points on the same continuum.  Now these points have moved closer together.

And not a peep of this from the non-FOX News media.

Ever since I started blogging about current events, I've provided a link to Jihad Watch.  I own three of Robert's books, and I plan on buying more.  All of which I hope to get autographed some day.

I wish Robert a quick and complete recovery, along with congratulating him on keeping up the good work.

The Deep State Strikes Back (Again)

(Image by Gary Varvel)
Yesterday, while I was composing a complaint about Cultural Appropriation, news was unfolding that:

TRUMP REVEALED HIGHLY CLASSIFIED INFORMATION TO THE RUSSIANS!!!

The media feeding frenzy exploded as the NYT and WAPO posted the stories.

These along with the other non-FOX News agencies are the same ones who insisted that Hillary Clinton's Secret Server, and her Pay-For-Play Program in the Clinton Money Laundering Foundation were fake news--and helped the Corrupt Queen get within 74 electoral votes of the Oval Office.

National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster, who was at the meeting, said Our Grand Nagus did not compromise sources or methods to the visiting Russians.

But as Fred Flietz points out--who leaked the story to the WAPO is the real scandal.

(Image by Lisa Benson)
Laura Ingraham believes someone burrowed in the intel community wants to hurt Trump.

More like a group of somebodies.

Sean Hannity said there are five major forces are aligned to take down Trump.  (Note:  Sean spends a lot of time in this video discussing the mysterious murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, but I'm going to hold-off on writing about this until more evidence becomes available).


But none of this matters to the Democrats, who are already making early calls for Trump's impeachment.  To them, it's always...

(Image from:  Memegenerator.net)
Yeah, now we know how Jan Brady felt.

Or as The Diplomad calls it:  The Attack Continues--Russia, Part 397.

Parts 398, 399, etc. so on and so forth, will soon follow I'm sure.

Apoplexy Over "Cultural Appropriation"

(Image found on Imgur)
As a writer, I'm suppose to be able to imagine myself as other people in order to tell a story.  But concocting characters outside my Caucasian, heterosexual experience could be seen as "Cultural Appropriation" by Social Justice Whiners (SJWs).

Two Canadian writers have been "appropriated out of their jobs" for running afoul of SJWs.

So-called Cultural Appropriation is just one weapon in the left's arsenal to politicize everything (video).

Hmm.  Keeping everyone within their own ethnic boundaries?

Sound a lot like...

Since I'm not of direct Irish descent, I thought I'd appropriate this meme for an end-of-post laugh...

The Comey Conundrum Continued

(Image by Lisa Benson)
Other than a brief pause for Mother's Day, the momentum of last week's news about canning Comey carried over the weekend.

Apparently, there may be some Comey Tapes.

Until such tapes come to light, I'm not going to get all riled over this.

Could Our Grand Nagus have handled Comey's firing better?

Sure.

But the sore losing left still aren't taking things so calmly.

Greg Gutfeld highlighted the firing fallout, and then how the media lost it when Comey got canned.

Michelle Malkin pointed out the hyporcisy of the left.

Despite all the outrage, Derek Hunter illustrated how Trump's opponents are his greatest asset.

And here's a final recommendation by Kurt Schlichter:  Liberals are an inferno of flaming crazy and we should pour gasoline on the fire.

Tunnel Collapse at the Hanford Site

(Image from:  KOIN 6
A few days ago, a tunnel collapsed at the Hanford Nuclear Site.  Fortunately, there was no radiation release.

The accident occurred during the day shift hours where I work at Washington State Emergency Management.  I was on night shift at the time and came on duty several hours after the event.  Thankfully, the situation was winding down. 

Now it's a matter of getting to the site of the collapse and repairing the damage.  Our agency will continue to monitor the situation until the "all clear" is given.

(Image from:  Business Insider)
Note:  I intended to post this earlier, but I was busy at work, and I wanted to write about the "Comey Catastrophe" during my short off-duty time while it was still front-page news.

The Canned Comey Conundrum

(Image by Steve Breen.  Although the golf metaphor would seem more appropriate with Obama)

The airwaves, cyberspace and even social media are still aflame over Comey getting canned by Our Grand Nagus.

So there's plenty of news stations and sites to follow the on-going melodrama.

I'll just--ahem--take it from the top commentators I enjoy reading.

First, The Diplomad deduces in his Comey Goes article that the "questionable timing" leftists are lamenting about is irrelevant.  No matter when Trump decided to give Comey the pink-slip would be cause for outrage.

Next, Mark Steyn doesn't mince words in his Posse Comey Tantrum article about the now-former director's missteps.  But now that he's suddenly a darling of the Democrats, not following the rule-of-law is irrelevant compared to their newfound concern for Comey.

And speaking of the Donkey Drove:  A lot of them called for Comey's resignation.

In case you're wondering, here's a Top 10 List of Times Democrats Called For Comey to be Fired.

I guess leftists are mad that Comey was fired by President Trump, instead of President Obama--or President Hillary Clinton.

Comey Canned

(Image from:  Hope n' Change Cartoons)
Well for the past day now, the airwaves and cyberspace are abuzz with the news that Our Grand Nagus finally fired FBI Director, James Comey.

I thought America's #1 G-man lost credibility with his indicting, non-indictment of Hillary Clinton's "extreme carelessness" in using a secret server to funnel e-mails through.  So I'm not sad to see him on the receiving end of Trump's "your fired" catchphrase.

Here's just a sample of the Comey Commentaries:

Judson Berger and Brett Baier explain why Comey got canned.

Hannity feels Comey was a national embarrassment.

Tucker Carlson said his firing was long overdue.

Kimberly Guilfoyle felt this was a bold move by Trump.

But of course, leftists like this guy--who hate Comey for his half-assed investigation of Queen Clinton's shenanigans--are now crying "foul!"

More cries of fair & foul will be heard in the days ahead, I'm sure.

Prager U Video: Why Isn't Communism as Hated as Nazism?



I've always wondered about this.

In this video Dennis Prager explains how the nice-sounding concepts of Communism still cause people to be cool with this ideology.

People like the producers of Watch Mojo and their Top 5 Facts About Communism.

Republicare Rumpus--Round 2

(Image by Gary Varvel)
A few days ago, the Republican-led House passed their version of Healthcare reform.  Which unlike the last time, the bill failed in "Round 1."

Like Obamacare before it--the number of Democrats who voted for it equaled the number of Republicans who voted for the original. 

That is:  Zero.

But unlike their opposition to Obamacare, not every House Republican was on board with this newer version

While some Republicans may be wishy-washy about overhauling Obamacare, one of the top Democrats claim Americans will die if Republican re-tuning is implemented.

Talk about a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

Jake Trapper of CNN called-out one Democratic senator on their party's credibility problem.



(Image by Michael Ramirez)

But Republicans shouldn't be popping open the champagne either--for these three reasons. 


I'm not hopeful that any meaningful change to healthcare will be mad--by either party. 

Charles Krauthammer is even more pessimistic and predicts:  We'll be in a single-payer system in less than seven years.

Which, according to this oldie but goodie, may have been Obama's master plan all along...

Thunderstorms Rolled Through Western Washington State

I've barely been able to keep up with the headlines--like the GOP's Obamacare 2.5--because I've been busy at work, leaving me no time to post my irrational rants eloquent analysis of current affairs.

Here's what's kept my coworkers and I busy these past few days:

2500 lightning strikes in Western Washington

Even though the storms are long gone, we're still dealing with the damage left in their wake.

Lauren Southern Video: The Destruction of History




Comrade Karla called our attention to this story on social media.

I'm about as Yankee as one can get.  I was born in the Boston, MA area, and raised in Upstate New York.  So when it comes to the American Civil War, I don't have much, sympathy for the Confederacy's cause.

However, like the lovely Lauren, I do take issue with the destruction of historical monuments.

Even Confederate ones.

While the New Orleans Politburo may not care for Confederate history, they're apparently cool with the Castroites.

The Nuke Nutcase of North Korea

(Image by Robert Ariail)
Mid last week, Our Grand Nagus hosted a classified briefing warning senators that the North Korean threat is "urgent." In the aftermath of the meeting, the White House is considering putting North Korea on the State Sponsors of Terrorism list.

By the end of the week, Trump said during a Reuters interview that a major, major conflict with North Korea is possible.  Meanwhile, Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, urged the UN to act "before North Korea does." 

But even if we avoid a major, major conflict--or even just a major conflict--with Kim Jong-Un's gang, there's a few more failed states we may have to contend with.

Mark Steyn calls this the Age of the Nuclear Basket Case.

Haram Hogs Hit ISIS Team

(Image by Gruntworks Media "Death by Bacon")
Here's some good news for a change:

A few days ago, herd of wild boars killed three militants

Well, that's 216 maidens who'll maintain their virginity in Paradise.

Never mind sending Americans into harms way.  We should deploy Haram hogs against our jihadist enemies.

Backing Out Of Berkeley

(Image by Glenn McCoy)
Well, Firebrand Ann ended up cancelling her speech at Berkeley yesterday.

She managed to chat with Tucker Carlson last night about another dark day for free speech.

Her talk's theme:  Enforcing existing immigration laws that have been on the books for years--generations actually.

Firebrand Ann's speech wasn't the only venue shut down due to threats of violence.

Tomorrow's 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade has been cancelled.

The reason:  Because members of the Multnomah County Republican Party were going to participate in the parade.

Greg Gutfeld and The Five crew called it another victory for the anti-free speech movement.

But as Mark Steyn points out in his The State vs Free Speech article, this "new" movement isn't new at all, but has been active for several years.

Whether old or new, Hannity reminded us in his opening monologue that stifling free speech should trouble every American.

'Flaking Out Over Firebrand Ann

(Image by Mike Lester)
Firebrand Ann Coulter still plans on showing up at the People's Democratic Republic of Berkeley, despite having her venue cancelled, then reinstated-sort of.

The campus politburo cited "security concerns" for initially cancelling Firebrand Ann's appearance and then finding a "protectable" venue.

Mr Angry McDeanscream seems to think "hate speech" isn't protected by the US Constitution.

He's not the only one.  The snowflakes and crybullies currently inhabiting campuses posses the same collective group-think--and their willingness to employ violence to enforce it.

As Mark Steyn observed:  "Security" is the new "shut up" to conservatives.

One silver lining in all this is that comedy shows like "The Simpsons" are taking shots at SJWs.

Booting Bill O'Reilly

(Image by Glenn McCoy)
I limit my network news viewing almost exclusively to FOX News.  Any remaining viewing time I have left, I devote to local news stations.

So I have to admit, that up until mid last week, I only glanced at the headlines of Bill O'Reilly's sexual harassment scandal from other networks.

Despite my affection for FOX, the only reason I'd tune in to Bill's show, The Factor, was to hear what his guests had to say.

That is--if I could actually hear them.  Bill was too bombastic for my tastes.  I disliked the way he interrupted and talked-over his guests--especially if they were women.

This past Thursday FOX blandly announced O'Reilly will not return, while other news agencies trumpeted he was fired, and O'Reilly's legal team said he resigned.

For any of you other FOX viewers, there will be a new prime time lineup starting next month.

This isn't the only lawsuit faced by the "Fair & Balanced" network though. Last year, Gretchen Carlson filed a sexual harassment suit against CEO Roger Ailes

I've notice over the past few years that several women left FOX News for various reasons--including sexual harassment claims.  And not just the anchor women either; but contributing commentators like Kirsten Powers, Mary Katherine Ham and S.E. Cupp, just to name a few.

Amid all the justifiable hoopla over all the sexual harassment allegations, leftists still have a habit of being selective about the cases they get truly spun up about.  Brent Bozell pointed out the element of hypocrisy in the Anti-O'Reilly Army.

And there's a growing e-mail trail that there was a leftist campaign to oust O'Reilly.

But even if every allegation is "fake news," I'm not glad to see Bill O'Reilly get the boot--but I'm not sorry either.

The New Deterrence Deputy in Town

(Image by Gary Varvel)
VDH wrote a thoughtful article on Our Grand Nagus's attempt to restore deterrence--one bomb at a time.

Trump's salvos certainly aren't "Mission Accomplished" moments--they're merely signals to our adversaries that the Era of Hope & Change is over.

As VDH wrote, we're just now starting to restore some semblance of deterrence.  We have a long way to go, with potential hazards along the way.

But still, it's a good start...

A Tale of Two Shootings

Three days ago, Kori Ali Muhammed killed three white men at random, in Fresno, CA, because he "hates white people."

He also cried "Allahu Akbar," when taken into custody.

However, between Fresno PD and the FBI we're being told this was not an act of Islamic terrorism

Then yesterday in Paris, a gunman killed a police officer at the Champs Elysees and wounded two others.

ISIS quickly claimed responsibility.

Now I don't doubt that the Fresno shooting was primarily motivated by racial hatred.  But I find it disturbing how our officials are quick-on-the-draw to tell us:

No Islamic jihad to see here Citizen, move along...

Rebel Media Video: Popular Chocolates Now Labeled "Halal," not "Easter"




As David Menzies said in this video:  It looks like Easter has gotten the "Happy Holidays Treatment."

That is, glossing over the Christian celebration of the resurrection of Christ.

Now I'm no Harvard Business School of Business graduate, but to me a better company policy would be to make candies that cater to both Christian and Muslim customers.

I'd have no qualms if companies like Cadbury concocted candy for Islamic holidays, instead of completely caving to creeping sharia law.

It's skirmishes like this in the on-going Culture War that could have a lasting impact for those of us inside the Ramparts of Western Civilization.

Media's Short Attention Span vs. Jihadists' Long-Term Genocidal Strategy

(Image by Gary Varvel)

Palm Sunday saw two Coptic Christian churches bombed in Egypt.  By Holy Thursday, most of the media lost interest in this story.

Piers Morgan pointed out the media doesn't care about the Palm Sunday attacks (but they should).

Especially when Egyptian security forces killed seven more jihadis planning additional attacks.

I'd say these attacks are the tip of the jihadi iceberg, but Mark Steyn has a better analogy:

It's the incoming roar.

Palm Sunday Weekend Terror Attacks

(Image by Steve Breen in The Federalist Papers)
Our jihadist enemies weren't idle over the weekend.

While chattering class debated the effectiveness and legalities of the missile strike against Syria, a Uzbek carjacked a beer truck, plowed it into a crowd killing four and injuring 15 in Stockholm, Sweden.

And as usual, he turned out to be another Known Wolf who evaded deportation.

Then on Palm Sunday, two bombs killed 44 church-goers and injured 100 during Palm Sunday services in Egypt.

A tidbit of good news emerged from Iraq:  Iraqi Christians celebrated their first Palm Sunday Mass in three years.  Let's hope this trend continues.

But back in San Bernadino, a mass shooting occurred in an elementary school.

This story was just breaking yesterday as I was composing this post.  This turned out to be a murder-suicide involving a husband (suicide shooter) and his wife.  While there's probably no connection with global jihad, incidents like this still make me say "WTF?"

Trump Backslaps Syria

(Image by Henry Payne)
Late last week while my wife an I enjoyed a couple of rare days off--together--Grand Nagus Donolf Trumpler met with China's president, Xi Jinping.

Oh, and launched a Tomahawk missile strike against the Syrian airbase that conducted a chemical weapons attack.

Apparently, the Grand Nagus didn't get Barry O's memo about establishing multiple red lines for murderous dictators to cross.

Reactions--on both sides of the political divide--have been mixed.  Russia certainly isn't happy.

Speaking of the Russians:  The Pentagon is conducting an investigation to determine if Russia actually helped Syria conduct the chemical attack.

While I share the concern about us getting into a "Syrian quagmire"--or worse--going head-to-head with Russia, like The Diplomad and Dystopic are--and for good reasons--I'm all for putting the Usual Suspects "on notice." 

Even if the Syrian airbase is back in business:  Mark Steyn pointed out Trump hit a reset button for the world, while Greg Gutfeld cheered Trump reminded everyone who's boss.

Whether one thinks the Grand Nagus made the right decision or the wrong one, at this point it's better than making no decisions at all...

Suzy Surveillance and the Fake News Fakeout

(Image by Mike Lester)
Back in March, "Rice Krispies," as one of my on-line friends calls Susan Rice, did a "Sgt Schultz" impersonation on PBS.  But since she was ID'd as Suzy Surveillance the Unmasker, she went from "I see nothing! I know nothing!" to "...I leaked nothing to nobody..."

Commentators Bill O'Reilly and Laura Ingraham poked fun at her double-negative--which linguistically makes her statement a positive--which means she did leak something to somebody.

Or something.   

Anyway, semantics aside, Senator Tom Cotton gave Suzy Surveillance another nickname:  The Typhoid Mary of the Obama Administration.

Meanwhile, CNN is still spinning its newspeak, claiming the Susan Rice Surveillance Story is fake news.

I like how Mark Steyn put it:  The non-FOX News media is upset that "...someone has managed to out-fake our fake news of the Fake Susan Rice Story..." 

All the hue & cry of "fake news" by the leftist media does is convince us like-minded folks of being a case of "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."

Methinks the media doth unmask itself...

Susan Rice Asked for Trump Transition Associates to be Unmasked





Well, apparently Ms. Benghazi-was-caused-by-a-video-Rice is behind the unmasking of Trump's teammates in the "Russian Hacking" scandal.

According to FOX News, this new development comes from multiple sources.

Even though CNN provided a handy-dandy glossary to wiretapping terms, to include masking/unmasking, panelists on Andy Cooper's show claimed the unmasking claim was fake news.

The Diplomad rolled-in with a quick post, On Spying, Again as information on this story continues to be unmasked.

Meanwhile, those "nefarious Russians" are having tragic problems of their own.

Yesterday, a terrorist tossed a nail bomb into a crowded commuter train carriage at the St. Petersburg Metro.

In response, Al Jazeera's Arabic Facebook page was flooded with happy emoticons from happy Muslims celebrating the attack.

While I've been critical of nearly all of the Barechested Czar's actions...

...I'll give this enemy-of-my-enemy a measure of respect for his attitude towards terrorists.

Statutes of Sanctuary Lunacy

(Image by:  AF Branco)
While debates over wiretapping and Russian hacking rage, many (all?) of our metropolitan areas, from the Big Apple to the Emerald City, are still defying federal immigration laws.

The Seattle Politburo wants a cool million dollars for a legal defense fund for immigrants facing deportation.

Two things I noticed about this Seattle Times article:

1. The word "illegal" is missing from the title.
2. The article is not open to comments.

In previous left-leaning articles I've read in the Seattle Times--which allowed comments--at least half of the responses were of the "WTF?" variety. 

But the sanctuary city stance is more sordid than bilking taxpayers to fund illegal aliens' legal fees, and concocting headlines with newspeak.  According to a DHS report, sanctuary cities have released violent criminal aliens.

Back in the Bay State, Michelle DuBois (D) attempted to warn illegal aliens of a supposed ICE raid in Brockton, MA.

The Bristol County Sheriff called for Ms DuBois to be investigated.  I'm willing to bet that if she had an "(R)" at the end of her name, and was seen chatting with a Russian official at some cocktail party, the non-FOX News media would be hollering for her resignation.

Instead:  .

Sanctuary City Standoff


Two days ago, AG Jeff Sessions put sanctuary cities on notice--comply with Federal laws on illegal immigration or face being cut off from Department of Justice funding assistance.

 In response, the People's Democratic Republic of Seattle, initiated a lawsuit against the White House.

Other sanctuary city mayors followed-up with their own see-you-in-court threats.

(Image by Dana Summers for The Patriot Post, 26 January 2017)

A coworker and I were talking the other day about how much we use to love Seattle.  We considered it our favorite American metropolitan area.

Not anymore.

Now I only venture up to the People's Democratic Republic of Seattle for specific events at a single locations--not to do any sort of aimless walkabouts.

Proclaiming a metropolitan area a "welcoming city," (Newspeak for sanctuary city), is just one symptom plaguing our urban centers.

Derek Hunter wrote about bearing witness as our cities die.  He hopes we may be able to turn things around, at least in some cities.

I might be too pessimistic, but I'm not so sure.  It would take voting out all the leftists in city offices to begin such a venture, and I don't see that happening anytime soon.

Republicans Rolled-Back From Obamacare

(Image by Steve Kelley)
This past Friday, the GOP scrapped their attempt to fix Obamacare.

Over the weekend, the Grand Nagus unleashed a Tweet-strom promising to "...totally fix healthcare."

Accusations flew all around.

Trump blamed the Democrats and predicts Obamacare will explode.

On FOX News, Stuart Varney called the GOP a disgrace (not to worry, he's disgusted with the Democrats), while Derek Hunter called them cowards of their own convictions.

(Note:  Varney's gone head-to-head against other conservatives over repealing Obamacare--even Mark Steyn).

But getting back to disgusting Democrats:  Chuck Schumer said he'd work with Republicans--once they take repeal off the table.

Hal Scherz offered this post game analysis of the GOP Healthcare Fumble, and Kurt Schlichter reminded us this was just one lost battle in a protracted war-- with lots of American Civil War analogies (while heaping scorn upon Ryan).

The Diplomad put it another way:  Making Democrats happy is bad for America.

Yeah.

Obamacare was bad for America to begin with.  It should never have been passed to begin with.  However, this is now wishful thinking.

Obamacare is like a giant Facehugger on the America.  The problem is:  How to truly kill it without killing the patient.

(Image by Gary Varvel)
Unlike the professional pundits, I'm not going to pretend I have the answer to fixing/replacing/abolishing Obamacare.  I've been lucky so far, and have "kept my doctor" throughout the eight year Era of Hope and Change.

I certainly want to see Obamacare abolished, but not with the same level as upheaval as its implementation caused.  I'll be happy with not having to justify my healthcare coverage to the IRS, and threatened with ever-growing fines.  Just a small victory in this protracted Healthcare War.

Comeback Clinton?

On Saint Patrick's Day, Corrupt Queen Clinton said she's  ready to come out of the woods.

Wiretapping vs Russian Collusion Re-Ignited

(Image by Gary Varvel)
While the late and un-lamented London attacker was running over and knifing innocent people, the Towergate plot thickened.

According to Congressman Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee, some sort of surveillance was conducted against Team Trump after all.

The Five got into a free for all heated debate over this latest development, where even panelists who normally agree with each other were arguing.

Tucker Carlson wondered was this a vindication of the Grand Nagus? (Along with getting into a heated debate with Jessica Tarlov).

Towergate & Russian Hacking aren't going to be resolved overnight.

I'm willing to bet the scandalous waters will still be muddied when I'm back on-line next week (maybe sooner, if I can manage).

Terror Attack in London, UK & the Human Cost of Illegal Immigration in the US

(Image of Islamist celebration poster found on The Gateway Pundit)
When I woke up from my nightshift nap yesterday, the first thing I saw on-line were the headlines of the terrorist attack near Parliament where four people were killed and 40 injured.

The POS (piece of shit) was initially described by witnesses as a 40-something Asian man.  This could understandably be a heat-of-the-moment observation, or a case of political correctness (PC) conditioning.

But based on the method of attack--using a vehicle to run down pedestrians, then going at them with a knife--it didn't take me long to "jump to conclusions."

(Image from Meme Generator)
Then there's the usual lag-time in publicizing the POS's name.  Initially there was some confusion about another usual suspect from the "religion of peace."  Whether due to mistaken identity or more PC conditioning, London PD felt confident they ID'd their man, but at the time I'm writing this, they're still not saying.

Whoever he was, he may not have been a card-carrying member of a terrorist organization, but ISIS's minions are happy.  More importantly though--he had support.  Multiple arrests were made as UK police conducted a raid on the jihadist's address.  (UPDATE:  Just as this post was about to upload ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack).

Meanwhile, at least one NBC reporter is more worried about this attack "helping Europe's right wing."

 But this latest attack comes as no surprise in the aftermath of the "Love Trumps Hate" protests.

(Another image from Meme Generator)
Ayaan Hirsi Ali said Trump's travel ban was clumsy, but he's right.

Too bad half of our voting population and Democrat politicians won't think so, because it's not just jihadists that are threatening our civilization.

Several days ago, a 14 year old girl was raped in a Maryland high school by one or two illegal aliens.  The second rapist is 17 years old, so like the London police, Maryland authorities have been mum on the rapist's immigration status.

Derek Hunter reminded us that leftists prefer illegal aliens over your kids.  Mark Steyn had similarly scathing words:  Human sacrifices on the Altar of Diversity.

VDH warned what the end-game will be when Law takes a holiday, while Ann Coulter didn't mince words:  We have now hit full-on crazy.

Or at least half the country has.  The rest of us want to bar the gates and man the ramparts...
