Do you agree with this?

Trayvon Martin Being Awarded Posthumous Degree

This just royally ticks me off. Florida Memorial University should
be ashamed of themselves. They are posthumously awarding
Trayvon Martin a Bachelor of Science Degree in Aviation. What
the hell for? He broke the law and attacked George Zimmerman.
He got shot in the process and died. Zimmerman’s life was ruined
all because he did the right thing. It started a racial conflict and
cop-hatred that is still smoldering out there. He died five years ago.

They are honoring a criminal because he loved planes. How sweet. I bet they honor Assata Shakur as well for killing a cop in cold blood. His parents will accept the degree on his behalf. SMH. He was not a victim of violence… he was a violent criminal and they know it. This is deplorable. This was a catalyst for the Black Lives Matter group that is full of racist black militants and hatred.|By Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Shoulda just done it quietly.....

Trump Announces Ban on Transgender People Serving in Military  Leah Barkoukis Posted: Jul 26, 2017

Trump Announces Ban on Transgender People Serving in Military

President Trump announced Wednesday morning on Twitter that transgender individuals will not be allowed to serve in the U.S. military.
“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” he said. “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you.”


Kushner’s meeting with the House should be held privately. “Because members of Congress cannot behave themselves in public settings and every serious investigation,” Gowdy said.

Trey Gowdy Just Shut Down The Biggest Russia Conspiracy Theory

The so-called “mainstream” media and Democrats are kicking the Russia hysteria into high gear.
They believe they finally have the evidence to take out Donald Trump.
But Trey Gowdy just shut them down with one response.
Gowdy is the Chairman of the Oversight Committee.
He is also playing a key role in the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into alleged Russian meddling.
So he knows the ins and outs of the various congressional inquiries into the 2016 election.
When it was announced that White House advisor Jared Kushner attended a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. where a Russian lawyer promised information of illegal activity on the part of the Clinton campaign, the media leapt at the story.
They believed they finally had evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
The story dominated cable news, and pundits spouted about treason and how this meeting could spell the end of Trump.
Not so fast, said Trey Gowdy.
Kushner met behind closed doors with the Senate Intelligence Committee and planned to meet with the House Intelligence Committee as well.
Gowdy said this is the proper way an investigation should run and noted that in Kushner’s prepared remarks to the Senate Intelligence Committee he denied any collusion.

Jeff Sessions Announces New Policies Threatening to Strip Funding From Sanctuary Cities  Christine Rousselle Posted: Jul 25, 2017

Jeff Sessions Announces New Policies Threatening to Strip Funding From Sanctuary Cities

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new policy on Tuesday night: cities must allow ICE (Immigration Control and Enforcement) officials into their jails. Further, jails must alert authorities when a person who is eligible for deportation is due to be released from custody. If they do not, they will not get certain law enforcement grants. These grants are typically spent on things like body cameras and other equipment used by police.

Mad Dog Mattis Enraged About Pentagon Spending
WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Jim Mattis blasted the Pentagon bureaucracy for "cavalier" spending in light of a recent report that showed as much as $28 million had been wasted in buying uniforms for the Afghan army, according to a memo obtained by USA TODAY.

The report found that U.S. military officials have purchased the forest-camouflage uniforms since 2007 without testing their effectiveness, or accounting for the fact that just 2% of Afghanistan is covered by woods. The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction also found that special tailoring boosted the cost of the uniforms, as did using a licensed camouflage pattern when free versions were at hand. The report will be the focus of a hearing by a panel of House Armed Services Committee on Tuesday.

"Cavalier or casually acquiescent decisions to spend taxpayer dollars in an ineffective and wasteful manner are not to recur," Mattis wrote.

Mattis' letter is unusual in that the military regularly pushes back at reports by the special inspector general's office, which is led by John Sopko. It has disputed his finding, for example, that millions were wasted building a gas station in Afghanistan.

Political Cartoons by Bob Gorrell

Jonathan Turley reminded viewers that "collusion" as it is now being defined is not a criminal act."Collusion itself is not a crime," and there is no evidence of crime to date pertaining to the Russia investigation, the George Washington University law professor told "Fox & Friends" Monday.
Turley warned of the "cross-pollination" between Congress and the special counsel appointed to investigate connections between the Trump campaign and Russia. The "helpful suggestions" of political opponents undermine the credibility of the investigation.
"People need to step aside. Either they want an independent investigation or they don't," he advised.

Female Hunter Commits Suicide After Receiving Threats From Animal Rights Activist   Posted July 24, 2017 by Jenn Jacques

Do these people have any idea of the damage their online threats and attacks have on hunters or do they just not care that they are hurting another human being?
Well, now they’re responsible for keeping one woman from ever hunting again – unfortunately, she won’t be doing anything else ever again, either.

27-year-old Melania Capitan, who was from Catalonia and had lived for the last three years in Huesca, became a well-known blogger and hunter – gaining thousands of followers by sharing her experiences in the outdoors with her fans.
But after being hounded and threatened on social media by animal rights activists, Capitan reportedly committed suicide Wednesday to end the harassment. Sources say the young huntress left a note for friends before ending her life in response to the bullying – which didn’t end after her death.
“She’s finished the lives of many animals and no one defended the death of them… I think our [lives are] worth the same as theirs,” one person wrote on her Facebook page.
Another said, “You have done a favor to humanity! Bye Bye.”
Look: hunting is conservation and many of us choose to harvest the meat we feed our families from the woods. These “animal activists” are the worst – claiming to act on behalf of the welfare of animals while targeting humans – but we have got to do a better job of holding our own and supporting others, especially on social media!
RIP, Melania. We won’t let you or your story be forgotten!

I guess this means...."be careful what you post on social media" I guess "freedom of speech" doesn't apply to us PEONS....

Intolerance: Winner of Makeup Competition Disqualified Over Pro-Trump Social Media Post   Guy Benson Posted: Jul 24, 2017

Intolerance: Winner of Makeup Competition Disqualified Over Pro-Trump Social Media Post

The facts of this case seem to be pretty straightforward: A talented makeup artist from Kansas won a national contest, entitling her to a swanky trip to Los Angeles and a generous gift card.  After the decision was rendered, it was revealed that the victor was -- gasp -- supportive of President Trump, an irrelevancy that nevertheless led directly to the rescission of her crown.  In End of Discussion (of which there's a new paperback edition with fresh content arriving on August 1st), Mary Katharine Ham and I decry the hard Left's exhausting and obnoxious efforts to politicize every aspect of American life.  This is an egregious example of that phenomenon, wherein a woman who won a competition fair and square, on the entirely non-ideological merits, is being punished for thought crimes.  Rich Lowry's wry observation about the kerfuffle is an understatement:

Scaramucci Gets To Work, Axes First Leaker  07/25/2017  Source: Brietbart  by: Matthew Boyle

Scaramucci Gets To Work, Axes First Leaker
By Cezary p 

Suspected leaker Michael Short has been terminated from the White House communications office, Breitbart News can confirm.
Short, an ally of White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and now former Press Secretary Sean Spicer—who resigned last week—was terminated on Tuesday by new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.
Short originally worked for the Trump campaign—placed on it by Priebus—and quit the campaign, sources tell Breitbart News, after the Access Hollywood tape came out. Politico confirmed this report, noting that Short walked out in the middle of the campaign leaving his computer behind only to show back up in January at the behest of the Republican National Committee (RNC) allies in the White House.
Multiple White House sources tell Breitbart News that Short was a leaker, and worked closely with now former White House deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh—another RNC wing official who was terminated earlier this year for her own suspected leaking.

Trump Considering Making Giuliani AG  07/24/2017  Source: Fox News  by: Paul Crookston

Trump Considering Making Giuliani AG
President Donald Trump stirred up political intrigue with his criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions last week, and now a new report says he has floated replacing Sessions with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Trump has been unhappy with Sessions' recusal from the Russia investigation and has raised the possibility of bringing in Giuliani in internal conversations, Axios reports. A West Wing source told Axios that Trump is furious at Sessions, which could be seen in Trump's tweet calling Sessions a "beleaguered A.G." on Twitter Monday.

Giuliani was a strong supporter of Trump during the 2016 campaign, and he was considered a candidate for the job that Sessions landed. Giuliani did not end up getting a position within the administration, but he has continued to defend Trump in the media.

Axios' Mike Allen wrote that Trump "often muses about personnel moves he never makes," pointing out that his report does not prove Trump will do anything. To begin with, the president would have a difficult time getting Giuliani confirmed in the Senate.

Robert Mueller’s Big Decision Has This Frightening Consequence For Trump

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia and the 2016 election is a political witch hunt.
Mueller is drifting far away from his mandate to dig into Trump’s business empire.
Now he’s announced a move that has frightening consequences for Trump.
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is now squarely in the special counsel’s sites.
Mueller and his team are investigating allegations of financial crime from his work nearly a decade before his time on the Trump campaign.
And Mueller and his team of Democrat lawyers are scheming to leverage those allegations into squeezing Manafort for information about collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

CIA Official Reveals Startling Truth About Russian Collusion

The so-called “mainstream” media has spent months painting a picture of the Trump campaign and Russian operatives working hand in glove to rig the 2016 election.
They’ve painted a picture of an espionage operation out of a spy thriller like The Americans.
But one former CIA official revealed the most shocking accusation of collusion in the 2016 election.
Edward Price worked for the CIA and also served on Barack Obama’s National Security Council.
So it’s not surprising that he leveled allegations of collusion with the Russians.
But it was who he said worked with the Russians that stopped everyone cold in their tracks.
Price claimed it was the media that really colluded with the Kremlin.
NTK Networks reports:
“Edward Price, a former CIA employee who served as a top spokesman and a senior director for President Obama’s National Security Council, accused the media of colluding with Russian intelligence officials during the 2016 presidential election while taking part in a panel discussion at the Aspen Security Forum on Thursday.
The panel discussion titled “The Kremlin Plan to Beat the West without Firing a Shot,” dealt with Russian’s involvement in the 2016 election and was moderated by CNN’s Jim Sciutto.
During the discussion, Price took exception with how the media covered Russia’s involvement in the election citing October 7, 2016, as the most vivid example of the media’s poor coverage of Russia’s role.
On October 7, Price noted when the United States government formally attributed the meddling in the election to the most senior levels of the Russian government, the Donald Trump “Access Hollywood” tape was released, and John Podesta’s emails started getting released.

“From October 7th to November 8th, there was a media frenzy on John Podesta’s emails focused on the substance and the content but not the origins,” Price remarked.”
Price explained the media aided Russia by not covering the October 7th announcement by the Obama administration that Russia was behind the cyber attacks on the Democrat National Committee and Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta.
NTK Networks also reports:
“It wasn’t just the statement… and this term is a loaded but the collusion on the part of certain elements in the media and Guccifer 2.0, the Russian cyber persona, who would send scoops to individual reporters and say, ‘hey you should take a look at this,’” Price responded. “And then lo and behold, major media outlets would write on the scoops provided by this Russian intelligence officer.”
CNN’s Sciutto took objection to Price’s accusation that the media colluded with Russia and asked Price to explain what he meant.
Price stood by his claim telling Sciutto to call it, “cooperation, collusion, whatever you want.”
Sciutto pointed out that collusion implies willing corporation.
“At a certain point, you had to have blinders and earmuffs on not to know that Guccifer 2.0 was a Russian intelligence official,” Price responded.”
It should be noted that everything Guccifer 2.0 and WikiLeaks published was accurate.
Their email dumps showed collusion between the media and Democrats during the 2016 campaign.
Compliant reporters were fed questions to ask Republicans, and primary debate questions were leaked to Hillary Clinton.
Claiming the media colluded with the Russians because accurate news was reported is one of the most bizarre conspiracy theories floated about the 2016 election.
