Overnight Open Thread: Coach’s Celebration Dance

Via For The Win:

Miami’s overtime win on Monday night over Virginia was a big one — the Hurricanes are 9-6 in the ACC and 19-8 overall. So big, in fact, that head coach Jim Larranaga just had to celebrate with a dance.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t The Whip/Nae Nae as we’ve seen him do before, but something much, much better.

Now, I have no idea what you’d call that, but it’s perfect. Let’s break it down: It starts with a strut into the locker room, where his players are celebrating. Then, he holds up his hands and everyone has no idea if he’s calling for a high five or it’s a dance move. After that, he turns around and does what I’d call a Half-Carlton.

Whatever you want to call it, that is one awkward but perfect dance. And his players love it, so it must be good.

CNN Releases Hissy Fit Statement After Being Left Out Of WH Press ‘Gaggle’

Sounds like a scorned girlfriend, right?

Great response:

But the reason they were left out was because it wasn’t a formal press briefing, but an informal ‘gaggle’ similar to the kind that Obama had (and didn’t invite everyone).

While generally a better idea to invite everyone, hypocritical to hyperventilate over it as though it had never happened before.

Video: Clinton Endorses “Resistance Plus Persistence” Against Trump, Says “Keep Fighting”

Didn’t you leave? Why are you still talking?

Via Daily Mail:

An upbeat Hillary Clinton popped back into the political spotlight Friday with a three-minute address to Democrats, applauding them for being the ‘resistance’ against President Donald Trump.

She urged her party to ‘keep fighting and keep the faith,’ while adding, ‘I’ll be there right with you every step of the way.’

Clinton’s message was released in conjunction with the Democrats’ meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, where they’ll decide new Democratic National Committee leadership tomorrow.

But Clinton’s frequent forays back into the limelight suggest she could still write another political chapter post-2016.

New Hampshire Governor Signs Constitutional Carry Into Law…

One State at a time.

Fairfax, Va. – Today was a great victory for gun owners in New Hampshire when Gov. Chris Sununu signed Senate Bill 12 into law, allowing law-abiding New Hampshirites to carry their firearms in the manner that best suits their needs.

“New Hampshire now joins an ever-growing number of states in passing constitutional carry,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “Despite the best efforts of Michael Bloomberg-funded groups to distort the truth, the New Hampshire legislature and governor stood strong for freedom.”

Sununu’s signature on SB 12 makes New Hampshire the 12th state to allow constitutional carry. New Hampshire joins its northern New England neighbors Maine and Vermont, both of which allow constitutional carry.

Sponsored by Sen. Jeb Bradley (R-3), Senate Bill 12 will repeal the license requirement to carry a concealed pistol or revolver, unless a person is otherwise prohibited. For those who choose to obtain licenses, SB 12 will also increase the length of time in which a license is valid from four years to five years.

Shady Left-Wing Operative Kicked Out Of CPAC For Handing Out Russian Flags

Via Daily Caller:

A left-wing political operative with a history of shady activities was kicked out of CPAC on Friday after he distributed Russian flags to audience members ahead of President Trump’s speech there.

Some news outlets reported that CPAC attendees were waving the flags as if they were pro-Russia.

But the reports left out the fact that a veteran political hatchet man named Ryan Clayton actually distributed the flags, which bore the name “Trump” on them.

Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe first pointed out on social media that Clayton distributed the flags. The Daily Mail’s David Martosko confirmed that CPAC removed him from the venue.

Armed Robber Shot in Crotch by Armed Jogger

Ouch, that smarts!

Via Free Beacon:

An armed robber was shot in the crotch while trying to rob a Texas man who was on a jog Wednesday.

“While it is still early in the investigation, detectives believe that the victim, a man in his 20s, was jogging to a local gym in the area,” the Arlington Police Department said in a release. “The victim noticed a pickup truck that appeared to be following him and circle in front of him in a business parking lot. The victim reported that a suspect, later determined to be a juvenile, exited from the passenger side of the pickup and pointed a firearm at him while demanding his property.”

That’s when police say the jogger pulled a gun from his backpack and opened fire on the armed robber. He hit the robber at least once somewhere in the crotch. Officials wouldn’t say exactly where in the crotch the robber was hit.

Liberal News Site Publishes Obituary Attacking Fox’s Alan Colmes

Classy…

Via Free Beacon:

The liberal-leaning news site Slate published an obituary Thursday attacking former Fox News contributor Alan Colmes.

Colmes passed away on Thursday at the age of 66 after a battle with an illness. Colmes started his career as a radio host but is best known for his time on the Fox News program “Hannity & Colmes.” The political debate program launched in 1996 and lasted over a decade until 2009.

Colmes was often the outspoken liberal on the news channel, butting heads with conservatives like his long-time friend Sean Hannity.

Fox News honored Colmes with a touching tribute.

Slate took a different approach when remembering Colmes. Its obituary was titled, “Alan Colmes, Buffoon and Patsy, Was Fox News’ Original Liberal Weakling.”

Twitter Is Locking Accounts For Swearing At Famous People…

Well, sh*t….

Via CNBC:

Last night, developer Victoria Fierce had some harsh words for Vice President Mike Pence. Incensed over the Trump administration’s recent rollback of transgender protections, Fierce let loose on Pence. “F**k you,” she tweeted. “I gotta piss, and you’re putting me — an American — in danger of assault by your white supremacist brothers.”

Almost immediately, she got the notification. Twitter had detected “potentially abusive activity” on her account, and put her in temporary timeout as a result. For the next 12 hours, only followers could see her tweets — which meant she wouldn’t be able to lobby the Vice President.

Rotary International Club Owners Guns No Longer Allowed…

Via Daily Caller:

You see the signs as you drive into countless towns and smaller cities across the country. Sometimes as a single, stand-alone sign and sometimes as part of an assembly of the service organizations serving the community, the Rotary International logo is instantly recognizable.

When you travel internationally, it is not unusual to see that logo signage in hotels where the local chapter meets with the day and time of the meeting posted for the benefit of traveling Rotarians.

Keeping our discussion to the United States, there is no question that the Rotary Clubs are part of the fabric of our civic life. The membership is made up of largely of business owners and executives of banks and local companies. Rotarians are part and parcel of their communities. They live there. They work there. They seek to make them better.

Ex-Con Jesse Jackson Jr. Collects $138,400 A Year In Federal Government Benefits…

Junior isn’t right in the head.

Via The Daily Mail:

Disgraced former Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. is claiming $138,400 a year from the federal government in benefit checks, it has emerged.

The former Democrat politician and son of Reverend Jesse Jackson, 51, was sentenced to 30 months in prison in 2013 for taking $750,000 from his own campaign funds.

Now, details of his benefits package – which he gets for bipolar disorder and depression – have emerged, leaving critics questioning how he is eligible for the money, the Chicago Tribune has reported.

The details of Jackson’s payments emerged in divorce proceedings, which wife Sandi Stevens, began last year in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

Most of the money – around $100,000 – comes from workers’ compensation and is not taxed, Jackson’s attorney, attorney Barry Schatz, said.

The rest are Social Security Disability payments that he receives because of his mental health problems, which caused him to take leave from Congress in 2012, and may be taxed.

According to the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act, workers can be given disability compensation ‘due to personal injury or disease sustained while in the performance of duty.’

But for someone to receive compensation from the federal government for bipolar disorder is extremely unusual, said Ari Wilkenfeld, a Washington employment lawyer.

His firm, Wilkenfeld, Herendeen & Atkinson, often represents federal employees, but he says he’s never seen a case where someone has claimed for the disorder.

‘What’s remarkable here is by his getting workers’ comp, it appears that Congressman Jackson’s attorneys have convinced the government that his bipolar disorder was created by the rigors of being a member of Congress,’ he said.

NC Feminazi Outraged By “Real Men Provide, Real Women Appreciate It” Billboard…

Real men put their name on the birth certificate, real men take care of their children and responsibilities.

Via WLTX:

A new highway billboard is stirring up controversy, protest, and debate in the Triad.

The sign reads, “Real men provide, real women appreciate it.”

The billboard is turning a lot of heads on the highway.

It’s located on I-40 Business West, next to the Linville Road exit, between Greensboro and Winston-Salem.

Some folks were even spotted getting out of their cars to take pictures.

Love it or hate it — everyone has a strong opinion on the message.

“I think it’s fairly accurate. Being a married man myself, I think my wife really appreciates the fact that I can provide for a family and take some of the stress off her,” said Ron Houser.

“I think appreciation is good however we find it. But there is a message in that board that’s not good,” said Lucy Milner.

“It really undermines women’s work in the world,” said Joe Milner.

“I would assume if you had a husband that loves you and appreciates you and showed it enough to carry your family and kids, that you would appreciate it. I don’t know why that would be offensive. I think that’s a good thing,” said Nathan Walin.

The billboard belongs to Whiteheart Outdoor Advertising.

At the time of this report, it’s still unclear who’s sponsoring the message and why.

But female rights activists like Molly Grace say the billboard delivers a misogynistic, outdated message.

“It’s absolutely, absolutely insulting to single mothers, to women who have careers whether they are small careers or big careers,” said Grace.

Grace is the owner of Kleur, a community makers-space in downtown Winston-Salem.
