    Crap from the Left

    Migrant group demands Trump either let them in or pay them each $50G to turn around: report Two groups of Central American migrants marched to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana on Tuesday with a list of demands, with one group delivering an ultimatum to the Trump administration: either let them in the U.S. or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. Among other demands were that deportations be halted and that asylum seekers be processed faster and in greater numbers, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The first group of caravan members, which included about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11 a.m. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, said the $50,000 figure was chosen as a group. “It may seem like a lot of money to you,” Ulloa told the paper. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.” He said the money would allow the migrants to return home and start a small business. A letter from the group criticized U.S. intervention in Central America and asked the U.S. to remove Honduran President Orlando Hernandez from office. They gave the consulate 72 hours to respond. A letter from the second group of about 50 migrants arrived at the consulate around 1:20 p.m. asking the U.S. to speed up the asylum process and to admit up to 300 asylum seekers each day at the San Ysidro Port of Entry in San Diego. Currently, around 40 to 100 are admitted. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/caravan-migrants-in-mexico-demand-trump-either-let-them-in-u-s-or-pay-them-50000-each-to-go-back-home
  2. Feel free to contribute yours...here's mine: Nebraska principal reportedly bans candy canes, says 'J shape' stands for Jesus https://www.foxnews.com/us/nebraska-principal-reportedly-bans-candy-canes-says-j-shape-stands-for-jesus An elementary school principal in Nebraska was reportedly placed on leave after telling teachers to avoid decorating their classrooms with Christmas-themed ornamentations so as not to offend those who don't celebrate the holiday. The principal at Manchester Elementary School, identified by Fox affiliate KPTM as Jennifer Sinclair, sent out a memo earlier this week with guidelines as to what is considered appropriate for classroom decorations and assignments. Teachers were reportedly told that generic winter-themed items, such as sledding and scarves, and the "Frozen" character Olaf, were acceptable. Decorations that included Santa, Christmas trees, reindeer, green and red colored items and even candy canes were not acceptable for the elementary school. The candy canes, according to KETV, were prohibited because Sinclair deemed them to have religious significance. "Historically, the shape is a 'J' for Jesus. The red is for the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection," she reportedly wrote. "This would also include different colored candy canes." "I feel uncomfortable that I have to get this specific, but for everyone's comfort, I will," Sinclair reportedly wrote in the memo. The Elkhorn School District, which did not immediately return Fox News' requests for comment, told KPTM in a statement that "the memo does not reflect the policy of Elkhorn Public Schools regarding holiday symbols in the school." The district's policy states that "Christmas trees, Santa Claus and Easter eggs and bunnies are considered to be secular, seasonal symbols and may be displayed as teaching aids provided they do not disrupt the instructional program for students." Sinclair was reportedly placed on administrative leave as of Thursday morning.

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    They're looking to play on the sympathies in California vs those in Texas...which wouldn't be in line with their thinking, to put it mildly. If they headed into Brownsville, Trump wouldn't have to call out the military, there'd be plenty of Volunteers.

    I guess it's a damned if you do...damned if you don't sort of thing. You would think that if voting was mandatory that EVENTUALLY, the general public would TRY to be more informed. Perhaps that is wishful thinking?

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    Like most people, Deicer doesn't know what Fascism is or how it first arose. After the success of the communist revolution in Russia in 1917, Marxists believed that the workers of the world would unite and overthrow their governments. That the proletariat would rise up against capitalism and take control of countries all over the world. The anthem of socialism was "The Internationale". When socialism failed to spread outside of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic, Marxists began wondering why, and trying to find solutions. The answer they came up with was that socialism was being effectively opposed by nationalism. An Italian Marxist, Antonio Gramsci, came up with what he thought would be the solution - to combine socialism with nationalism. He invented Fascism. The symbol of Fascism was the fasces, bundles of sticks carried by lictors (bodyguards of elected officials) in ancient Rome. The symbolism is obvious. Citizens of the fascist state must act in cohesion in support of the state. There can be no dissent. So freedom of speech must be done away with. The state must control the media as well as the means of production. Fascism was first implemented by Benito Mussolini in Italy in the early 1920's. Mussolini was a lifelong Marxist. Vladimir Lenin sent Mussolini a letter of congratulation on his ascension to power, acknowledging that they were brothers in arms. Fascists, like communists, believed in total state control of the citizens. The success of the Fascists in Italy inspired Adolf Hitler to create a national socialist party in Germany. Like Mussolini, Hitler was a socialist. The term "Nazi" is an acronym for "national socialism". After World War Two, people everywhere were horrified by the evil of the Nazis and to a lesser extent the Fascists. Socialists in Europe and the US were also horrified, not so much at the evils revealed, but at the prospect that their own socialist movements might be tainted and compromised by association with fascism and nazism. So they pulled a HUGE con. A big bamboozle. Using the pretext that the communists and the Nazis had fought each other, they redefined nazism (and fascism) as being at the opposite end of the political spectrum from communism. The Far Right as opposed to the Far Left. Like you Deicer, I am worried about the rise of fascism, but unlike you I see it coming from the socialist side of the political spectrum, as evidenced by the behaviour of modern leftists in the US and Europe. The real fascists are the ones using violence on campuses and in the streets to shut down free speech. The real fascists want ever larger governments, regulations and rules telling people what to do, higher taxes, and an end to democracy. In the US, which side wants activist judges on the Supreme Court to implement progressive laws that cannot be achieved democratically? Which side wishes to shut down debate? Which side is "resisting" and trying to bring down a democratically elected president? Trump is no fascist. His Democratic opponents are. It is a major tactic out of the leftist (communist, fascist, nazi, progressive) playbook to accuse your opponent of what you yourself are doing.

    https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2018/10/clintons-the-gift-that-keeps-on-giving.php POSTED ON OCTOBER 8, 2018 BY STEVEN HAYWARD IN BILL CLINTON, HILLARY CLINTON CLINTONS: THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING I thought this story was a satire, or something from the superb Babylon Bee, but it’s true! And it’s too good to be true. National Review reports: Oh, please, please be a precursor to Hillary running again in 2020! But even if not, I hope there are videos of these appearances. The entertainment value will be awesome. Can we get Chelsea involved, too? That would make it perfect.

    It’s raining poop in Kelowna!

    Looks like another story was flushed out... https://www.theprogress.com/news/multiple-cars-hit-by-falling-feces-at-park-b-c-woman-says/ Multiple cars hit by falling feces at park, B.C. woman says Abbotsford woman thought at first ‘real big bird’ with bad ‘diarrhea’ was to blame TYLER OLSEN Jun. 4, 2018 12:28 p.m. LOCAL NEWS NEWS An Abbotsford woman says her car was hit by a large amount of feces falling from the sky in mid-May, just a day after a similar incident in Kelowna that has prompted Transport Canada to look into whether aircraft are to blame. Karen Copeland and her daughter were sitting in their vehicle at Mill Lake Park on the evening of May 10, prior to a baseball game, when they heard a “splat, splat, splat, splat.” The pair looked at each other, and thought of the most likely culprits – birds. The scale of the mess, though, was far from ordinary. “We looked at the car next to us, and it was covered, and the [other] car next to us was covered too,” she said. When they stepped out of the car they saw five be-splattered cars. And it was, Copeland said, very clearly poop. “It reeked. It was disgusting,” she said. “We were gagging.” It was so bad, she immediately texted a friend. Even so, Copeland thought a bird was likely still to blame. “I honestly just thought it was a bird with really bad diarrhea,” she said. “I was like, ‘That had to be a real big bird to cover five cars.’” But after hearing about a Kelowna woman who was splattered with feces through the sunroof of her vehicle on May 9, Copeland began to consider whether an airplane was to blame. Since that incident was first publicized, others have come forward to share similar stories. Susan Allan, who was hit in Kelowna, contracted pinkeye after being splattered, believes a plane was to blame and wants the airport to take responsibility for her grief, and to clean the inside of her car. One researcher has suggested the feces could have come from a melting “poopsicle” that had been frozen on a plane overhead. RELATED: Man recounts truck suddenly covered in brown splatters from the sky Copeland, for her part, got her filthy car cleaned up the next morning. She has been told that Mill Lake Park is not beneath a normal flightpath and says is willing to consider other explanations. But with no large buildings nearby, the magnitude of the poop that fell on Mill Lake Park that day, and at least two other incidents occurring that same week elsewhere in the province, the possibility of an aircraft overhead doesn’t seem out of the question. Similar reports across B.C. have led Transport Canada to begin an investigation. Contacted by phone, a Transport Canada spokesperson requested inquiries be emailed because the agency has received such a large amount of requests on the matter. They have not yet responded to an email.
