COWARDS....Take it down at night with faces covered

New Orleans Tears Down Confederate Monument Under Dark Of Night – American Mirror    The daley gator

New Orleans city officials removed the first of four Confederate monuments in the city in the dead of night Monday to avoid potential conflicts with protestors who want it to stay where it is.
Workers decked out in bulletproof vests, military helmets and scarves covering their faces disassembled the Liberty Place monument and hauled away the pieces around 5:35 a.m., as police oversaw their work from atop a nearby parking garage, the Associated Press reports.
The precautions, which included starting work at about 1:25 a.m., didn’t deter Civil War re-enactor Robert Bonner from coming down to the site to share his thoughts about the ordeal.
“I think it’s a terrible thing,” the 63-year-old said. “When you start removing history of the city, you start losing money. You start losing where you came from and where you’ve been.”
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landreau and the City Council disagree.
The predominantly black Council voted 6-1 in 2015 to remove the Liberty Place monument, as well as statues honoring Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard and Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis, but legal challenges delayed the action until now.

Just a question...What are the doing with these monuments ? I hope not destroying them.....they don't belong to these "city officials" they are property of the people...not just New Orleans but all of America

Sometimes the Living God allows bad things to happen. Unfair, untrue, unworthy things. Sometimes. The best example of that is the cross of Calvary.
At the end of the day we are no better than our people before us. They watched their lives, their children's lives, their future, their civilization, their hopes and their dreams come crashing down around them. They staked everything they had down to the blood in their veins to preserve what the Founders left us.

THEY WERE NOT WR...ONG in fighting the tyranny of greedy control-freaks. They lost everything. Only the very ill-informed, the stupid and the agenda-driven say it was over slavery. Blow those off. They are not worth the time you spend arguing with them, and if, IF they happen to have Confederate blood, they are not worth the blood in their veins. They are the willingly ignorant and the intellectually lazy. Their stupidity is evident to all. Everybody knows in this age of digitization that is a lie. Our people dealt with the vile, filthy home yankees too. We are no better than them.
There are many battles in a war. This is a big one, no doubt, but it is not the end. It is the beginning. Don't give up and don't stop. Your people didn't. They suffered more than we will, and more than we realize. They kept going. They crawled into position to fight because they were too emaciated to stand, and they marched without shoes leaving bloody tracks in the snow. Why should the battle be any different for us?
Most of all, PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! Again, look to the cross. When they thought it was all over, He walked out of the grave in 3 days alive, ALIVE.
Sometimes it's not over when we think it is. Sometimes.......
DEO VINDICE!

Donald Trump: ‘If They Don’t Treat Fairly, I Am Terminating
NAFTA by Charlie Spiering24 Apr 2017
President Donald Trump again leveled criticism about NAFTA in an interview with the Associated Press, promising to either renegotiate the trade deal or terminate it.

nafta
“I am going to either renegotiate it or I am going to terminate it,” he said. “If they don’t treat fairly, I am terminating NAFTA.”
Trump has not softened his campaign rhetoric about the North American Free Trade Act, accusing Mexico and more Canada for hurting the American economy.
“I am very upset with NAFTA, I think NAFTA has been a catastrophic trade deal for the United States,” he said to the AP.
During an America First event in Wisconsin, Trump began criticizing Canada for hurting American dairy farmers, and has repeated his remarks on multiple occasions.
“[I]f you look at the dairy farmers in Wisconsin and upstate New York, they are getting killed by NAFTA,” he said.
Trump said last Thursday that Americans should expect something big on trade “within the next two weeks.”
       

F-35B Lightning II Stealth “Operational Test Trials”

Ok, this is not a Harrier. This is an F-35. It has a higher payload than the harrier and travels faster than its predecessor. This plane defies anything any other country has because of its speed, agility, and ability to take off and land vertically, to include the harrier. Those who say we had these in the 70s and 80s are wrong. This is A LOT different than anything the Marine Corps has ever had.

Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501 out of Beaufort, S.C., and Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121 out of Yuma, Ariz., will perform a variety of missions for Marine Corps test and evaluation officials: day and night flight operations, day and night weapons loading, and maintenance, logistics, and sustainment at sea. Testers will also assess digital interoperability of aircraft and ship systems, F-35B landing signal officer’s launch and recovery software and modifications made to Wasp for JSF operations.



During OT-1, actual Marines — not test overseers — are operating the six F-35Bs that embarked May 18 for the tests; this includes pilots and maintainers. During DT (developmental testing), we got to see firsthand the first vertical landing and short takeoff at sea, but in OT-1, the Marines are demonstrating a cadence to operations to gain confidence the single-engine, stealthy fighters can assimilate into an air wing onboard the amphibious ship, which will include other platforms: the MV-22, CH-53E/K, AH-W/Z and unmanned air systems among them. This is all leading up to the operational debut of the F-35B, slated in July.

“The F-35 Lightning II is the most versatile, agile and technologically advanced aircraft in the skies today, enabling our Corps to be the nation’s force in readiness, regardless of the threat, and regardless of the location of the battle,” Lt. Gen. Jon Davis said to WTRK. “As we modernize our fixed-wing aviation assets for the future, the continued development and fielding of the short takeoff and vertical landing, the F-35B remains the centerpiece of this effort.”

The RAF used the Harrier (sp) jets years ago, this F 35 can dogfight, assist ground support and make heavy bomb loads or carry multiple tomahawk cruise missiles. The Chinese already have copied the old F117 with the stealth features. This jet can be used for multiple missions. it’s expensive but our past cowardly president spent more money giving it to our enemies and entitlement projects that desperately need overhauling. People just can’t live off the federal government doing nothing.

God Bless our military for fighting for safety and freedom. God bless our troops, God bless America, and God bless President Trump!!!

This story is a great example of how we cannot believe what we   hear and see on the mainstream media anymore.

It's ironic that the Left is always calling for restraints to be made on what they perceive as conservative bias yet are prepared to turn a blind eye to anything from the Big Left: NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times, Time, etc.

For instance, did you see the fake analysis from the Super Bowl winners' visit to the White house? Two photos apparently meant to show the team's disdain for Trump were revealed to be very fake news. Turns out the Trump White House had offered seats to non-team members. The New York Times finally apologized but not before a false narrative had been created and distributed.

This story is much more serious. When the race card is played the stakes are upped as the consequences can be so much more damaging.

Despite Reports, Fmr Fox Guest Now Claims She Was Never Sexually Harassed by Sean Hannity  LawNewz 
© Provided by Mediaite, LLC
Debbie Schlussel, a former Fox News guest, appeared on a local radio show on Friday and recounted an incident where Sean Hannity purportedly asked her to a hotel, and when she rebuffed his advances, she claims, she was ostracized by the network star. The story has since gone viral garnering headlines like Sean Hannity Accused of Sexually Harassing Fox News Guest” in publications like The Daily Beast and The Huffington Post. Now, in an interview with LawNewz.com on Monday morning, Schlussel is denying that she was ever sexually harassed by Sean Hannity. While Schlussel stands by her description of the incident, Schlussel told us that she doesn’t believe what happened between the two amounted to sexual harassment by any legal definition.
“I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that,” Schlussel, an attorney herself, said.  Schlussel said the interaction happened in the early 2000’s when Hannity was in Detroit taping a show.
“He tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show after he and his executive producer Bill Shine treated me horribly,” she said on the radio program. Schlussel later clarified that it wasn’t his hotel room, but rather his hotel. She told LawNewz.com that she did go on the show following the incident, but after that was “banned from Fox News.”

Did Obama's CIA Director Collude with Foreign Spies to Bring Down Trump?04/22/2017  Source: AAN by: Remington Strelivo

Did Obama's CIA Director Collude with Foreign Spies to Bring Down Trump?
It appears one party was working with foreign governments to sway the 2016 presidential election. But it wasn’t the Republicans.
According to new reports, Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan, conspired with foreign spies in order to tip the 2016 election to Hillary Clinton and defeat President Donald Trump.
     According to The American Spectator, Brennan hoped to keep his position as the head of the Central Intelligence Agency in a Hillary Clinton presidency—so he enlisted the help of foreign spies from the United Kingdom and Estonia to help get Trump out of the way.
     The conspiracy allegedly started in April 2016, when Estonia—listed in leaked reports as an “unnamed Baltic state”—told Brennan that Russia was funneling cash into Trump’s campaign. Estonia had no evidence to support their claim. At the time, Trump had just criticized NATO, which Estonia sees as critical to their continued independence from Russia, and so the Estonian officials were eager to help elect Hillary Clinton.
     Despite Estonia’s obvious bias and lack of evidence, Brennan used the shaky piece of information as pretext to launch a widespread investigation into Trump and his campaign. Brennan than used similarly inaccurate information from British spies in order to round out his investigation. Brennan put together a phony case for a multi-agency investigation into Trump—allowing top Obama officials, like Susan Rice, to spy on Trump and his team.
     In order to ensure maximum political damage for Trump, Brennan leaked key pieces of the investigation to the media—including his closed-door briefings to eight Senators, which would up on the front page of The New York Times.
     What began as an investigation into Trump’s alleged ties to Russia has quickly become a headache for the left. Now, it appears increasingly like Republicans weren’t the one colluding to rig the election—the Democrats were.  Source: AAN
 

Didn't we just go through, (still are) a lot of accusations of Trumps people being in touch with 1/2 of Russia ? Isn't this the same thing ? obama meddling in the French election ??? OH ! I'm sorry, it's OK when the ANNOINTED ONE does it.....

ABC News Caught In Major Anti-Trump Scandal, They Want This Buried


The liberal mainstream media have proven time and time again that they are selective in their news coverage, pushing their agendas through stories that better…
The liberal mainstream media have proven time and time again that they are selective in their news coverage, pushing their agendas through stories that better reflect them. It’s time we start calling them out on it!

ABC is the latest news outlet to be embroiled in controversy for its coverage of President Trump. As many have (or have not) learned recently, Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, requested that members of the incoming Trump transition team be unmasked in reports of gathered intelligence, which were later leaked to the press.
Despite this massive news story, ABC has made no mention of the Rice scandal on its website’s homepage, via the Gateway Pundit. The story does not fit ABC‘s liberal agenda, so in their mind it does not exist.
It was also revealed that the House Intelligence Committee chairman, Devin Nunes, knew that Rice had been the one to unmask the Trump officials as well as the president himself. No logical reason beyond the political purpose of embarrassing the current administration has been identified.
Liberal outlets do not seem to care about national security and the stories that are immediately relevant to it — they simply want to push their own agendas.
This is the biggest news story of this year so far and one of the most important in decades — U.S. officials used spying techniques meant for protecting Americans from terrorists to spy on political opponents. That’s why it’s so obvious ABC actively decided not to report on it.
While many liberal mainstream media outlets had pathetic coverage of this story, ABC had non-existent coverage of it.
In addition to not being on its homepage, this scandal did not even break ABC’s politics page where it most certainly should have been.
This is why so many Democrats are turning away from the Democrat Party — it has gone too far down the liberal rabbit hole, using the mainstream media to promote its now extreme views. The liberal media have constantly only reported news that paints Democrats in a good light, and they fail to properly report on other stories.
News is supposed to be objective and inform people what is going on in this country and the world; it is supposed to remain unbiased. Fake news was a massive issue during the recent election, and it looks like it will be right into the near future.
It will be interesting to see if liberal media outlets like ABC continue with this approach into the distant future. If they fail to turn away from actual news, they could end up out of business in a couple of years and spiral away into obscurity.

So...It's not just the U.S. that has trouble with blacks. And cannibalism, ?? Remember IDI AMIN, human body parts were found in his food freezer......Hmmmm


Cannibalism, prostitution and other racist myths that confront Africans studying in India

African students participate in a protest against the alleged assault of Tanzanian woman in Bangalore, India, Saturday, Feb. 6, 2016.

GREATER NOIDA, India — Evelyn Benjamin was at home with her 3-year-old son when the manager of her apartment complex and three police officers came to the door.
The middle-age physician who lived upstairs had found what she thought were two hunks of human flesh on the pavement outside and was convinced that Benjamin was responsible.
"She thinks that Africans are cannibals," said Benjamin, a business-school student from Nigeria.
The meat appeared to be chicken. But the accusation and its racist overtones were nothing new for Africans living in India.
An estimated 25,000 — primarily from middle-class families in Nigeria and Sudan — are students at Indian colleges and universities. They are drawn by affordable tuition and the promise of educational institutions better than those back home, but they often leave feeling insulted and alienated.

Accusations of cannibalism have long surrounded the African community in India. They have grown since an Indian teenager briefly went missing last month in this fast-growing city outside New Delhi — and his mother accused five Nigerian men of eating him.

Nancy Pelosi: Border Wall Is 'Immoral, Expensive, Unwise'

Asked by "Meet the Press'" host Chuck Todd in an exclusive interview whether the Trump administration would push a government shutdown if border wall funding is not included in a bill to fund the government this week, Priebus said, "it will be enough in the negotiation for us to either move forward with either the construction or the planning or enough to get going with the border wall."
Members of Congress are returning to the nation's capital this week with a nearing deadline to work on a deal to continue government funding and avoid a government shutdown.

Sharpton Slams Donald Trump for Not Releasing His Tax Returns


And I’m slamming Al Sharpton for being a race baiting, violence inciting self-serving hypocrite.

Well, ain’t that the pot calling the kettle black. Pay your own taxes you before pointing the finger at someone else.
Observer:
As protesters readied for mass “Tax Day” demonstrations on Saturday, Rev. Al Sharpton slammed President Donald Trump for refusing to divulge his personal financial information, which has broken a White House tradition dating back to the late President Richard Nixon.
Speaking at his weekly rally at the Harlem headquarters of his National Action Network, Sharpton noted that thousands would take to the streets in a few hours to demand the president at long last disclose his full fiscal history and provide an account of his global business dealings. During the campaign season, Trump claimed he could not release his returns because he was under audit, which the Internal Revenue Service and other observers deemed a spurious excuse.
The then-candidate promised to disclose his tax details once the review was over—a promise he rescinded upon winning the presidency.

Twenty-five million reasons the U.S. hasn’t struck North Korea
The Washington Post Anna Fifield

Maye-E/AP
Soldiers march across Kim Il Sung Square during a military parade in Pyongyang, North Korea, to celebrate the 105th birthday of Kim Il Sung, the country's late founder and grandfather of current ruler Kim Jong Un.
TOKYO — If the United States were to strike North Korea, Kim Jong Un’s regime would retaliate by unleashing its conventional weaponry lined up on the demilitarized zone that has separated the two Koreas for about seven decades. 
And that conventional weaponry is reliable, unlike North Korea’s missiles, and could cause major devastation in South Korea, which is a staunch ally of the United States.  
“This becomes a very limiting factor for the U.S.,” said Carl Baker, a retired Air Force officer with extensive experience in South Korea.
As tensions between North Korea and the outside world have risen over the past month, there has been increasing talk about the United States using military force either to preempt a North Korean provocation or to respond to one. 
That talk continues even after it emerged that the Navy had not sent an aircraft carrier strike
group to the Korean Peninsula region, as officials, including President Trump, had implied.

Emails Show Liberal Effort to Oust O'Reilly

Ousted Fox News host Bill O'Reilly shut down his legal team's last-ditch efforts on his behalf to show proof of a left-wing effort to have him fired, Politico's Joe Pompeo reported.
The legal team for the star host of "The O'Reilly Factor" had in its possession an email from a liberal fundraiser showing her crusade to get O'Reilly ousted from Fox News Channel, Politico reported.
O'Reilly's attorneys wanted to take that evidence to Fox parnt company 21st Century Fox, but the famed conservative voice said no.
"So no formal sending to Rupert [Murdoch] until after the call," O'Reilly said in an email to his attorneys, Politico reported.
The email from Mary Pat Bonner showed her efforts — titled "advertiser education program" — to sway companies to yank their advertising from O'Reilly's show.
The email was ostensibly the source of attorney Marc Kasowitz's statement earlier this week that said O'Reilly was the victim of a "brutal campaign of character assassination," one Kasowitz promised to show proof of at a later time.
But Fox on Wednesday pulled the plug on O'Reilly, saying in a statement that both parties had agreed to part ways.
O'Reilly reportedly will walk away with $25 million in severance.

DOJ Sends a Letter to Nine Sanctuary Cities: Comply With Federal Immigration Laws or Lose Your Grant Money
Acting Assistant Attorney General Alan Hanson sent a letter Friday to local government officials in nine different suspected or declared sanctuary cities and counties,  demanding proof of compliance with federal immigration laws.
The letter, sent to officials in Sacramento, Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, New York City, Miami Dade County, Milwaukee County and Cook County, notes that these jurisdictions receive U.S. government grant funding. If it is to be renewed, cooperation with federal immigration authorities is expected. 
"I write to alert you that under the terms of your FY 2016 Byrne JAG grant, award 2016-DJ-BX-0106 from the Office of Justice Programs ("OJP"), your jurisdiction is required to submit documentation to OJP that validates that your jurisdiction is in compliance with 8 U.S.C. 1373, which states that 'a Federal, State, or local government entity or official may not prohibit, or in anyway restrict, any government entity or official from sending to, or receiving from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual.' As your grant agreement makes clear, this documentation must be accompanied by an official legal opinion from counsel that adequately supports the validation and must be submitted to OJP no later than June 30, 20107, " the letter from Hanson to Chicago Police Superintendent of Police Eddie Johnson states.

Why President Trump is having such a hard time in the White House.....in my humble opinion....If you don't agree...I DON"T CARE !

So... LUCIFER"returns to public life".....as far as I can see, he never left the public SPOTLIGHT. The leftist media has kept him front and foremost, every chance they get. Whether it's Obama, Michelle, Hillary, Biden or any of the previous administration, it seems as though the media just won't let go....THAT IS, unless the MSM wants to "report" something derogatory about Trump or his administration, or, the size of his hands or the cost of Melanias dress or how much Ivankas company is making or Trump jrs tax return or any other ridiculous thing the media can invent. In that case, Trump is front page HEADLINES.

If the media and the "citizens" had treated Obama the way they are treating Trump, there would have been a war in this country. Even now, after almost 3 full months in office, with demonstrations and riots still going on, the "MASKED PERPETRATORS" of these RIOTS are getting by with slaps on the wrists, Police standing by, just "watching" while the Trump supporters are made to look like THUGS. It's reported that these demonstrations are being FUNDED, and they seem to know by whom but there is nothing done to stop it. Couldn't HIS,- "Georges" assets be frozen, at least in the USA ??

YES.... the goat man....We had already moved from S.C. to Pennsylvania but we used to go back down to Honea Path S.C. every summer for a couple of weeks. What I remember was someone coming by and saying "the goat mans here" and we all jumped into cars and drove to the highway to see the "Goatman", and what a sight it was, a herd of goats, a wagon and I don't know how many people, would pull off the side of the road and camp there overnite, by morning they were gone. I never knew anything about him and only recently found out he was a self proclaimed preacher, but you can imagine what an impression he made on this (at the time) 10/12 year old naive little boy.

AP: Fresno Shooter Didn't Yell 'Allahu Akbar' ... He Said God Is Great In Arabic Matt Vespa Posted: Apr 18, 2017 6:40 PM

AP: Fresno Shooter Didn't Yell 'Allahu Akbar' ... He Said God Is Great In Arabic
Justin wrote about the horrific shooting in Fresno, California, which left three people dead. The shooter, 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, reportedly yelled “Allahu Akbar” when he was taken into custody by law enforcement, according to Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer. Authorities also said that he hates white people. Yet, as reports came in, people on Twitter noticed something odd about the report filed by the Associated Press [emphasis mine]:
A man shot and killed three people on the streets of downtown Fresno on Tuesday, shouting "God is great" in Arabic during at least one of the slayings and later telling police that he hates white people, authorities said. Kori Ali Muhammad 39, was arrested shortly after the rampage, whose victims were all white, police said. He also was wanted in connection with another killing days earlier, in which a security guard was gunned down at a Fresno motel after responding to a disturbance.
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said the victims were shot minutes apart in close proximity in areas around downtown. He said Muhammad made other statements to police but he did not disclose them.
The shooting happened outside a Catholic Charities building, but spokeswoman Teresa Dominguez said the charity doesn't believe the suspect was tied to the nonprofit organization.
Are you serious, AP? Even the local ABC News station reported, “Officers were able to find Muhammad and take him into custody. While Muhammad was being arrested, Dyer said he yelled out, ‘Allahu Akbar.’” Why? Well, because that’s what he said. This isn’t the first time political correctness has seeped into the reporting of these attacks.
Katie wrote how the Department of Justice replaced the words “Allah” with “God” in the transcripts of the calls between Pulse Nightclub shooter Omar Mateen and Orlando Police in June of 2016. It also redacted Mateen’s pledge of allegiance to ISIS, though the FBI eventually released the uncensored transcript. Allahpundit, at the time, wrote this:
Loretta Lynch said … that Mateen’s pledge of allegiance would be edited because the government doesn’t want to “further his propaganda.” That might be a reason not to release the audio, since it’s destined to end up in ISIS jihadi porn online, but how does an accurate transcript further Mateen’s propaganda when … ISIS has already claimed credit for the attack? Lynch also claimed that censoring the transcripts was needed to avoid re-victimizing those people that went through this horror.” I can’t tell if by that she meant that other parts were left out (e.g., if Mateen was heard boasting about his body count) or if she’s referring to the ISIS material. Why would reading a transcript of him pledging allegiance to ISIS “re-victimize” them?
This isn’t Islamophobia. This isn’t up for debate. Mr. Muhammad yelled “Allauh Akbar” as he was arrested. What are you guys afraid of? It’s not like we don’t know this riddle.
