Organized Honduran Migrant Caravan Attempts to Reach U.S. Border to Coordinate with Mid-Term Election… — The Last Refuge

If only there were some sort of … a wall in the way. We need a wall of separation between horde and our State!

Last week there were six unique encounters between President Trump and U.S. journalists where the topic of illegal aliens and family border separations was brought up. It seemed odd at the time because the issue has not been a topic within discussion. These exchanges culminated in CBS correspondent Leslie Stahl asking the same question repeatedly […]

WaPo’s Charles Lane bemoans the increasing fear factor in and around political/societal discussions.

The report by More in Common, a new nonprofit dedicated to understanding and healing political polarization in the United States and Europe, is based on a nationwide survey of nearly 8,000 people conducted this past December and January.

It found that between 51 and 66 percent of Americans agree there is “pressure to think a certain way about” each of the aforementioned topics, with immigration seen as the least sensitive and Islam the most.

As Congress abdicates its role, columnist E.J. Dionne Jr. says voters must take up the role of checking President Trump. (Adriana Usero/The Washington Post)

Meanwhile, 68 percent report that “it is acceptable for me to express what I think” about race, or Islam, only among “people who are like me.” On immigration, 73 percent feel that way; on gay, lesbian and gender issues, the figure is 70 percent.

This is understandable considering the SJW swarms and the increasingly violent behavior of the radical left. The op-ed is okay: some general pandering to the history of speech policing, etc. And, they just can’t help but add a dose of irony – there’s a link to something about checking Trump’s autocratic, blah, blah, blah. It’s ironic because Trump is the one steady figure demonstrating how to just dispense with the fear and say it anyway.

He usually says it by Tweeting it. Like this one:

President Trump on Tuesday called adult-film star Stormy Daniels “Horseface” and threatened to “go after” her after he won a court victory over his alleged mistress.

“’Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials [sic] lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.’ @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!’ he tweeted.

BAM!

One will note that Trump keeps doing this kind of thing and it all keeps working for him. This will too.

The lesson is: 1) live in fear and self-censor and watch the causes for self-censor multiple, or; 2) Just say it, win, and laugh while the nuts cry.

Battling From the Open Raft

This kind of goes back to the old 53% statistic. Or the Justice K show trial. Is it possible men can be something other than oppressors? Even the opposite of that?

Washington (AFP) – The notion that it is dangerous to be an American man in the #MeToo era took off during the angry debate over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

But tossing more fuel onto the fire were a sarcastic tirade from Donald Trump and a painfully awkward tweet from a seemingly over-anxious mother.

On the day Kavanaugh was sworn in as the junior justice to the high court, Pieter Hanson’s mother posted a message on the social media network comparing the plight of the jurist — who had vigorously denied allegations of sexual aggression — to the dating challenges facing her 32-year-old son.

Under the hashtag #HimToo, she said her son was refusing to go on “solo dates due to the current climate of false sexual accusations by radical feminists with an axe to grind.”

1) Unless it comes from Donald Trump, I find anything on Twitter idiotic and/or suspicious. Doubly so for “mom’s” plea Tweet.

2) Sailer Jerry has already cucked hard. He may be okay, but he’s not Judge K.

However, I find the sentiment of the story plausible, probable. Another case of modern liberal, cannibal PC dining on itself. See also, the spectacle and mockery visited upon Kanye West, as told best, here, by Jim Goad.

If they’re not GITMO’d fast, Killary and Pocahontas may announce (failing) bids for 2020. Any word from Giant Meteor??

Is there another (non-seedy) side to the Goldman?

Fresh dirt has spilled at Goldman Sachs — and this time it has been caught on tape.

David Solomon, who took the helm of the Wall Street giant from Lloyd Blankfein last week, once blew off criticism of Goldman’s double-dealing in a big energy merger as a matter of “perception” — a cheeky dismissal that came despite a class-action lawsuit against the deal that eventually cost Goldman $20 million in fees.

That’s among the cringeworthy quotes that Carmen Segarra claims she secretly recorded behind closed doors for her new book “Noncompliant: A Lone Whistleblower Exposes the Giants of Wall Street.” The 340-page exposé expands on her previous claims that Goldman Sachs has long exploited an improperly cozy relationship with Wall Street regulators.

I’m sure “your” humble public servants are already looking into this.

Democracy in America: A Charming Children’s Story

I wrote this one a while back. M.B. always liked it and he’s been hounding me to repost it here. So, here goes. I reread and, in addition to still seeming funny, it’s still relevant. A few minor changes have been made to the body; at the end, you will find a short “update” commentary. Enjoy.

Last week I mentioned that an election was coming.  I also presented my own favorite candidate – Frank the Frog.  Frank will not win and the election is in vain.  Vote if you care. I don’t.
The Illustrious Barry Hussein El Islam Muhammad Obama the Magnificent has finished the job begun by his predecessors – the country is in ruins.  For his replacement, the Democrats have dug to the very bottom of the bag of wrinkled has-beens, to one Hillary Clinton, the wife of “good times” Bill, the Slickster.
The Republicans have other, similar ideas.  They would foist upon the people yet a third member of the Bush clan.  Obviously, the people are okay with two families maintaining a grip on national power for two or three or five decades.  Their business. Is there some national obsession with rats and roaches of which I am not completely aware?

As the DOW goes through another sell-off and we prepare to say goodbye to Sears (I think Roebuck is already deceased), could it be that President Trump is finally turning the MAGA lens on the Fed???

President Donald Trump slammed the Federal Reserve as “going loco” for its interest-rate increases this year in comments hours after the worst U.S. stock market sell-off since February.

Trump said in a telephone interview on Fox News late Wednesday night the market plunge wasn’t because of his trade conflict with China: “That wasn’t it. The problem I have is with the Fed,” he said. “The Fed is going wild. They’re raising interest rates and it’s ridiculous.”

“That’s not the problem,” he said of the trade standoff. “The problem in my opinion is the Fed,” he added. “The Fed is going loco.”

Channel that inner Ron Paul, MAGA Man! We need no loco banqueros. End it!

Especially Communist News Network.

So long as it’s from the left, good, old-fashioned racism is a-ok:

A CNN panel hosted by anchor Don Lemon took turns lacing into Kanye West on Tuesday evening, joking that his embrace of President Donald Trump has caused him to be tokenized. Several referred to him using the term “negro.”

“He’s an attention whore, like the president. He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson. He’s the token negro of the Trump administration,” said CNN contributor Tara Setmeyer.

Yuck, yuck, yuck. See, it’s okay if they do it. An otherwise shameful take on the “N” word is okay on CNN (from liberals). HOWEVER! The “M” word is strictly off limits (as applied to liberals:

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin refused to let one of her guests refer to rowdy far-left activists who opposed Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a “mob,” saying that she did not want to use the “m-word.”

The comment came from senior Daily Beast columnist and CNN contributor Matt Lewis, who said that the increasing confrontations initiated by far-left protesters will drive GOP turnout at the polls this fall.

I wonder if “token mob” would be acceptable?

No, seriously, there’s no reason to watch this clown network. Hasn’t been for years.

They are amazing, literally never taking “no” for an answer (and this is not about Bill…). The following comes in the wake of the liberal loss on Justice Kavanaugh and their foreknowledge of the blue toilet swirl next month. Loss or no loss, they can really fire up the base.

They Make the Call:

Eric Holder, who sold discount machine guns to drug dealers and terrorists until the market collapsed from saturation (then gave them away until no one wanted any more), told it like it really is:

“Michelle always says — Michelle Obama, I love her, you know, she and my wife like really tight, which always scares me and Barack, but Michelle always says, you know, when they go low, we go high,” Holder went on. “No. No. When they go low, we kick them.”

His call for “kicking” Republicans drew a quick applause from the crowd.

And Hillary Clinton, famous for the Vince Foster mur 2016 election loss, boldly confirmed the three laws of SJWs:

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.”

Lie, check.

Double down, check.

PROJECTION. Double check.

If only law four were ” go to GITMO” …

Okay, they set the tone, gave the marching orders, and….

The Uncivil Low-Kickers ANSWER:

Police and FBI agents searched a Hudson Valley, New York, home Wednesday and arrested the 56-year-old man living there after learning about his alleged plan to build a bomb and blow himself up in Washington, D.C. on Election Day, two law enforcement officials told News 4 New York.

Court documents say Paul Rosenfeld wanted to draw attention to his belief in an ancient election system called “sortition,” a method of choosing political officials at random.

Officials tell News 4 Rosenfeld had no criminal history but had told a reporter in Pennsylvania he planned to blow himself up on the Washington Mall around Election Day because he was angry about the country’s direction.

FBI agents pulled over Rosenfeld while he was driving on Tuesday, and he confessed to the plot, telling them he ordered black powder over the Internet and built a bomb in his basement.

Authorities searching his home found eight pounds of black powder explosive meant to be used in a bomb that would ultimately weigh 200 pounds.

He had no plans to hurt anyone else, officials said. He is believed to be a lone actor not affiliated with any international terror group or ideology.

Dear FBI: Please check those above quotes by known international terrorists and reconsider this “lone wolf” assessment.

BTW: the ancient and viable sortition angle is BS, mere cover floated by the enemies of the American people at press time.

More to come…

Follow-Up on the Falling-Down

Two things:

First, a while back I mentioned a journalist in Malta, murdered by corrupt elements in the government (one of them). She was back in the news following yet another politically-motivated hit job.

A popular Bulgarian journalist who had reported on an investigation into alleged corruption involving European Union funds was raped and beaten to death, authorities said.

The semi-nude body of 30-year-old Victoria Marinova was found in a park in the Danube town of Ruse on Saturday. She’d been beaten with such force that she was unrecognizable, according to the Federation of European Journalists.

Marinova is the fourth high-profile journalist to be killed in Europe since the beginning of 2017. Her death follows the alleged slaying of a Washington Post journalist in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Second, recently I mentioned Robert Redford and the end of an era, an American era. Now, Redford says he doesn’t recognize his own country. Our reasons, I suspect, differ, but we can agree on that. Actually, there’s probably little in common except for acknowledging the era passing.

And, so it did. Terrible shame out of the EU (and upon it).
