95-Year-Old World War II Mansfield, MA Veteran Gets A Boost From Firefighters

Via The Sun Chronicle:

Just call it an early Christmas present. And one well deserved.

Decorated World War II veteran Walter Gilbert and his wife Mary are both 95 and still manage to live in their own home. But they have some mobility issues, including difficulty with stairs. such as the ones from their home.

That’s where a group of Mansfield firefighters and the town veterans office is pitching in.

About a half-dozen firefighters left their regular shift Friday morning and headed over to the couple’s West Street home to install a ramp Veterans Agent Michael Raymond was able to get for the Gilberts.

One of the reasons Gilbert needs the ramp is because of injuries to his legs he suffered in the war.

Gilbert has a lift for the stairs inside his home, but finds the outdoor stairs difficult to use.

On top of that, his wife broke her leg, and she was in a plastic boot for weeks. The couple rely primarily on walkers but do have a donated wheelchair also given to them by the veterans agent.

“The guy is an amazing individual,” Fire Capt. John Terry said.

Ejected Seahawks Social Justice Warrior Tries Charging Into Stands To Fight Fans After They Threw Something At Him

Sore loser.

Via BI:

The Seattle Seahawks-Jacksonville jaguars game turned ugly late after a scuffle on field and near-scuffle between a player and fans.

As Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles took a knee to run out the clock in the final seconds, two Seahawks defenders hit him late, starting a fracas on the field.

Seahawks defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson was ejected for fighting, and as he made his way into the tunnel, turned back to argue with nearby fans in the stands. As the two parties exchanged words, someone appeared to throw an object on Jefferson, setting Jefferson off. Jefferson tried climbing into the stands to fight the fan, but was stopped by security before the situation escalated.

Nancy Pelosi, Democrats Built Their Own Monster

Nancy is the bride of Frankenstein.

Via Washington Times:

Behold, Nancy Pelosi, the monster you yourself created.

Sure, Democrats have opened another front on their illusory Republican “War on Women.” But a key constituency of Mrs. Pelosi’s political jalopy is not too happy about how the party got there.

Congressional Black Caucus members are resentful and bitter about the way Mrs. Pelosi turned on pervy Rep. John Conyers, the Michigan Democrat, after he was accused of improprieties with female staffers.

Specifically, the octogenarian octopus is accused of groping, harassing and abusing women who worked for him over the many decades that he has been fossilizing in the House of Representatives.

Mrs. Pelosi’s initial response to the allegations against the powerful ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee was part of her political DNA. Invoke race.

Mr. Conyers is above reproach, she insisted, because he is an “icon.” That is a code word for a hero from the civil rights movement and therefore any regular laws of politics or decency or of, well, actual laws, do not apply

Jerry Brown Blames Fires On Global Warming. Here’s Why That’s Insane

Lunatic.

Via Daily Caller:

California Governor Jerry Brown said the wildfires ravaging the greater Los Angeles area are part of a “new normal” residents can expect due to man-made global warming.

“This is kind of the new normal,” said Brown, a Democrat, on Saturday while touring Ventura County neighborhoods wrecked by the Thomas Fire, that is already one of the largest in state history.

“With climate change, some scientists are saying that Southern California is literally burning up,” Brown said, according to CNN. “So we have to have the resources to combat the fires and we also have to invest in managing the vegetation and forests … in a place that’s getting hotter.”

Brown’s statements, though ominous, aren’t in line with the scientific consensus. The latest National Climate Assessment report put a “low” to “medium” confidence on claims global warming was making wildfires worse across the western U.S.

Minneapolis Police Brace For Backlash On Decision Over Officer In Justine Damond Shooting— Whatever It Is

Which side is expected to riot?

Via Star Tribune:

There are no new witnesses or new evidence; only two people know firsthand what happened, and only one of them has spoken to investigators.

And yet, months after he received the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension’s investigation into the July 15 shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond by a Minneapolis police officer, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman has not made a decision on whether that officer, Mohamed Noor, will face criminal charges.

Freeman continues to insist that he will make a decision before the end of the year, and Minneapolis’ new chief of police said he’s bracing for backlash no matter what Freeman decides.

“There’s going to be a reaction from certain segments in the community regardless of what decision is made,” said Chief Medaria Arradondo.

The death of Damond, an Australia native who was shot in the alley behind her home after she called 911 to report a possible assault, reverberated across the city and around the world. It led to the firing of Minneapolis’ first female police chief, Janeé Harteau, and raised new questions about police training and the use of force.[…]

Noor has repeatedly declined to give a statement to investigators about the shooting. His attorney, Thomas Plunkett, said the investigation’s time frame does not seem unusual.

There were rumors that Noor had left Minnesota, but County attorney spokesman Chuck Laszewski said that Plunkett made sure investigators knew Noor was still here.

“Officer Noor, as is his constitutional right, has declined to be interviewed by investigators about the shooting, and Mr. Plunkett has made it very clear he won’t allow him to be interviewed,” Laszewski said.

Freeman has had the Noor case for 89 days, nearly twice as long as it took him to decide not to file charges in the shooting death of Jamar Clark, Hennepin County’s other recent high-profile officer-involved shooting.

It took Ramsey County prosecutor John Choi 49 days after getting the case from the BCA to announce he was filing manslaughter charges against former St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez in the shooting death of Philando Castile. Yanez was later acquitted.

Chinese President Celebrates With Fervor Not Seen Since Mass Murderer Mao…

WUZHONG, China—In a packed auditorium in this Yellow River city, dancers in floral-pattern costumes twirl against a backdrop of a red star shining over the Great Wall.

“General Secretary Xi’s words ring around our ears!” the dancers exclaim.

Welcome to the “Spirit of the 19th Party Congress” publicity tour.

The Communist Party traditionally launches propaganda drives to imprint new slogans unveiled at major conclaves. This time, after the party revised its charter in October to crown Xi Jinping as its greatest living theorist, an army of Marxist propagandists has gone to unusual lengths to spread their leader’s philosophy.

Some rode camels across arid steppes to deliver lectures on Mr. Xi’s political manifesto. Others braved South China Sea waves to take his congress report to island outposts and fishing trawlers, or turned to communications satellites to beam the highlights.

NJ Snow Storm Quickly Makes Impact — And Cancels Snowball Fight At Six Flags

You need snow for a snowball fight.

Via WKXW:

The Saturday snowstorm took a while to get started in New Jersey but quickly coated grass and highways.

Route 195 is the dividing line for snow amounts of 2-4 inches north of the interstate and 3-5 inches south, according to New Jersey 101.5 Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow. Snow was falling at varying intensities in every county of the state by 11:30 a.m.

“I think it’s also a good idea to proclaim what this storm will not bring to New Jersey. No coastal flooding. No beach erosion. Little to no icing. Few to no power outages. No ferocious winter winds (it will be breezy though). No extreme cold (it will be chilly though),” Zarrow said.

Speed limits on the entire lengths of both the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway was reduced to 45 mph.

Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson closed the park for the day and canceled their scheduled attempt to break the record for world’s largest snowball fight.

Days Before Election, Roy Moore Disappears From Campaign Trail…

Let’s hope he didn’t go to Disneyland, we’d never hear the end of it.

Via Montgomery Advertiser:

Near the end of a press conference for Roy Moore Thursday, a reporter asked a question: Where was Roy Moore?

“He’s campaigning,” said Ben DuPre, a longtime Moore associate and spokesman for the campaign. “He’s campaigning hard.”

If Moore is doing that, he’s keeping it a secret.

In the last few days before the Dec. 12 election for Alabama’s junior U.S. Senate seat, the Republican candidate has all but vanished from the public, continuing a pattern of absence that took hold after allegations of abuse, assault, harassment and misconduct with nine women surfaced against Moore in early November.

“I think it’s extremely odd that for the better part of that campaign, we have seen his spokespeople, his campaign manager and his surrogates,” said Angi Horn Stalnaker, a Republican consultant who has run races against Moore in the past.

Moore has a rally scheduled Monday night in Dale County in the Wiregrass – a region key to his chances – with former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon and U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas. But the Republican candidate has held no public events since a rally in Fairhope on Tuesday, leaving appearances to staff and surrogates. Moore has made fewer than 10 public appearances in the past month.

‘Mysterious Plane Lights’ Sparks Phone Calls From South Carolina to Colorado

Joint operation by the Air Force and the Army.

Via 9 News:

We now know what those flashing white and red lights were that flew over Denver around 9 p.m. Saturday night.

The 9NEWS newsroom received well over a dozen phone calls, emails and messages about a series of single-file lights that flew over the Cherry Creek/Washington Park area of the metro.

We can now tell you that Saturday’s light show was courtesy of a group of 12 C-17 cargo jets. According to our sister station WLTX, they took off from Joint Base Charleston base around 7 p.m. EST Saturday.

The large aircraft went cross-country to Nevada for a training exercise involving HALO drop–high altitude military parachuting. The exercise was done in coordination with multiple air military installations and groups, including the 82nd Airborne.

Before we knew for sure what the light show was, one viewer called to suggest it was UFOs. One said her son thought it was Santa’s scout elves flying back to the North Pole — much more creative solutions for what the answer turned out to be.

Portrait Of Hillary Clinton Set Off Security Dogs, Briefly Shutting Down Art Miami Tent

The dogs are used to tracking down criminals.

Via Tampa Bay Times:

When two security dogs reacted to a suspicious crate before an Art Miami tent opening early Saturday morning, Miami police officers briefly shut down the area for a few hours to investigate the possible threat.

But when they opened up the offending crate, officers found something else instead: a punky portrait of Hillary Clinton in a studded jacket and shaggy pink haircut, in a neon picture frame to match.

Fair director Nick Korniloff said that the two dogs reacted to the crate during a pre-show check shortly after 8 a.m., prompting organizers to clear the site. Both the Art Miami tent and a tent for Context, connected by a tunnel, were closed off. The package was then searched and the painting of the former Democratic presidential candidate was found inside.

Police officers ran the 16 inch by 20 inch acrylic-on-wood artwork through an X-ray machine, which turned up no suspicious material.

“We had to err on the side of caution,” Korniloff said. Both tents eventually reopened around 10 a.m.[…]

After the delay Saturday morning, both paintings were hung side-by-side in the Context tent, in a booth for a gallery called Spoke Art based in both New York and San Francisco.

Gallery owner Ken Hashimoto said police still were unsure Saturday morning what about the art had caused the dogs to react.

“They have no idea,” he said. “My thought is a Republican bomb dog.”

Seth Rogen Backs Out Of SiriusXM Interviews After Being Triggered By Steve Bannon

Actor Seth Rogen announced Friday he would pull out of scheduled interviews on SiriusXM satellite radio next week in protest of Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon being re-named a regular host of its daily radio program Breitbart News Daily this week.

In a tweet Friday, Rogen said he had interviews lined up for Tuesday on the subscription radio service, but would not honor the commitments because he “can’t bring” himself to appear on the same platform as Bannon.

“I was supposed to do a press tour on @SIRIUSXM on teusday but I’m no longer doing it because I can’t bring myself to appear on the same service that has decided to support Steve Bannon,” the Pineapple Express and Sausage Party star wrote.

Major Feminist Group Elects Trans Man As Leader

The DNA doesn’t lie.

Via Daily Wire:

Trans men are not only stripping women of awards and sports championships, they are now also leading feminist organizations, which completely smacks in the face their idea of “patriarchy.”

According to LifeSiteNews, the largest feminist organization in Quebec elected a transgender man, Gabrielle Bouchard, as their new president. The 49-year-old Bouchard hails from Concordia University’s Center for Gender Advocacy. His Twitter handle is “Gabbi_unicorn.”

The Federation des Femmes du Quebec is basically the Canadian version of America’s NOW, and “represents some 300 feminist groups and about 700 individual members.”

Bouchard’s appointment has not gone over well in some of Quebec’s media circles, saying that placing a man ahead of a feminist organization only serves to reinforce the patriarchy. Bouchard rejects such claims.

“They are saying we’ll tolerate trans women as long as they are not in a position of power,” Bouchard told Canadian Press. “We’ll tolerate lesbians in the movement as long as they stand 10 feet away.”

He accuses the critics of falling into a patriarchal construct that “presumes all women live the same experience — which is not true.”

Lindsey Vonn Suffers Back Injury In World Cup Race After Trump Comments

Stay out of the political arena and focus on skiing.

American skiing star Lindsey Vonn has withdrawn from her Sunday events at the World Cup in Switzerland after suffering a back injury during a super-G race on Saturday.

Pelosi Says ‘God Is With Us’ In Wanting Amnesty

Nancy is rambling again.

Via CNS:

House Minority Leader said at her Thursday press briefing that “God is with” congressional Democrats who want to allow illegal aliens who came to the United States when they were 16 or under to be allowed to stay in the United States legally.

A reporter asked Pelosi: “Have you changed your mind at all about being willing to accept some border wall funding or immigration crackdown funding within a DREAM Act fix?”

“I don’t know, when you say, ‘Have you changed your mind?’ We said to the President the night he agreed to the DACA legislation we have a responsibility to protect our border and we think there are many things we can do working together to do that. And Members have been working in a bipartisan way to address that.

“So we’re not backing off anything, including meeting the needs of protecting our border. We are not going to turn this country into a reign of terror of domestic enforcement and have the DACA, the DREAMers, pay that price.

“But I’m optimistic. I always have been. God is with us on this. Our country is great. We know our greatness springs from the vitality that newcomers bring to our country. Eighty percent at least of the American people support the DREAMers.

Reporter: Democrats ‘Were Peddling’ Salacious Trump Dossier Allegation To Journalists

Via Daily Caller:

During the presidential campaign, Democrats “were peddling” the most salacious Trump dossier allegations to news reporters, a new documentary about the dossier revealed on Friday.

“People associated with the Democrats were peddling that story,” NBC’s Ken Dilanian said in a special report that aired on MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s show.

Dilanian was referring to the unsubstantiated claim in the dossier that Trump used prostitutes during a trip to Moscow in 2013. According to the dossier, which was written by former British spy Christopher Steele, the Kremlin had video evidence of the hotel room encounter and was using it to keep Trump in line.

“There really was no way you could prove it,” Dilanian said of the Trump gossip.

After Trump Scraps Obama’s Military ‘Rules’, Troops Decimate ISIS At A Pace That Even Surprises Commanders

ISIS won’t be able to field a JV team.

Via BPR:

Liberals may not want to admit it, but President Trump is succeeding ‘bigly’ with one of his major campaign promises: crushing ISIS.

By discarding Obama-era rules of engagement and giving the military greater freedom, the Trump administration has decimated ISIS with a speed that’s even surprising commanders on-the-ground.

With less than a year in office, President Trump has overseen massive gains against the Islamic caliphate, with the once-powerful terror state losing city after city.

ISIS once governed immense territory in Iraq and Syria, ruling over 8 million people and controlling profitable refineries, agriculture, smuggling routes, and arsenals.

Now, ISIS controls only 3 percent of Iraq and 5 percent of Syria. Their leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is in hiding. American forces and regional allies have liberated key cities like Mosul, Raqqa, Tel Afar, and Rawa.

Brig. Gen. Andrew Croft, the ranking U.S. Air Force officer in Iraq, told Fox News he credits the Trump administration with providing the right leadership.

“The leadership team that is in place right now has certainly enabled us to succeed,” Croft said. “I couldn’t ask for a better leadership team to work for, to enable the military to do what it does best.”
