Video: San Diego Teacher Refuses To Answer If She Is American To Border Patrol, Is Held For More Than Hour

Or how to be a liberal idiot and waste everyone’s time.

Via Daily Mail:

A San Diego middle school teacher was detained for more than an hour at a checkpoint in New Mexico because she refused to tell agents if she was a US citizen.

When Shane Parmely and her family were stopped by Border Patrol, she was asked if she was a US citizen, but refused to answer.

The incident was filmed by passengers in the car with her and Parmely, who teaches English, art and theater, posted a series of the videos to Facebook.

She told the officers she didn’t think she had to answer their questions and after some back and forth, an agent told her she was being detained.

US Navy Ship Fires Warning Shots At Iranian Ship In Persian Gulf

Via Fox News:

A U.S. Navy ship fired warning shots at an Iranian ship in the Persian Gulf on Tuesday, U.S. defense officials confirmed to Fox News.

The U.S. Navy coastal patrol ship fired warning shots from its .50-caliber machine gun at an Iranian patrol boat when it came within 150 yards of the ship in the Persian Gulf, according to two U.S. defense officials.

The Iranian ship ignored repeated radio calls from the USS Thunderbolt, which also launched flares to warn the fast approaching Iranian ship, officials said.

Driver Who Let 10 People Die In His Overheated Truck Had License Revoked, Criminal History

This guy is never going to get out of prison.

Via Fox News:

The Florida man accused of allowing 10 people to bake to death inside a sweltering tractor-trailer early Sunday morning had his commercial driving privileges revoked in April — in addition to a criminal history that includes an arrest for grand theft and a conviction in a felony domestic violence case.

James Mathew Bradley Jr., 60, of Clearwater, Fla., appeared in federal court Monday on charges of illegally transporting immigrants for financial gain, resulting in death. He did not enter a plea or say anything about what happened, and was ordered held for another hearing on Thursday.

Florida driving records obtained by Fox News show the state had Bradley’s commercial driving privileges revoked in April.

A separate set of documents obtained by the Associated Press show Bradley had a criminal record dating back to the 1990s and spanning multiple states.

In 1997, Bradley pleaded guilty in a felony domestic violence case in Colorado and was sentenced to two years probation, Rich Orman, chief deputy district attorney for the 18th Judicial District in suburban Denver, told the AP. Records indicate supervision of Bradley’s probation was transferred to Gainesville.

The Mooch Gets Results: Daily Beast Writer Apologizes For Slighting Sarah Huckabee Sanders

‘Slighting’= calling her a ‘butch queen.’ Sweet, tolerant liberals attacking a woman for her looks.

Via Daily Caller:

In 72 hours, The Mooch has catapulted into a powerful watchdog of the media.

On Monday night at 8:35 p.m., White House Communications Director Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci called on The Daily Beast to man up and apologize after its “culture” writer mocked the looks of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

On Friday, Ira Madison III called her a transvestite. Specifically, he called her a “butch queen in drag” on Twitter.

By 10 p.m. Monday, Madison — about an hour and a half after Scaramucci called for the apology — went on Twitter with his tail between his legs.

State Department Lawyers Removing References To ISIS ‘Genocide’ Against Christians, Other Religious Minorities

Trump really needs to purge the State Department which is a hotbed of Obama holdovers.

Via Fox News:

The State Department’s top lawyers are systematically removing the word “genocide” to describe the Islamic State’s mass slaughter of Christians, Yazidis, and other ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria from speeches before they are delivered and other official documents, according to human rights activists and attorneys familiar with the policies.

Additionally, Democratic senators are delaying confirmation of Mark Green, Trump’s pick to head the U.S. Agency for International Development who has broad bipartisan support.

These efforts guarantee that Obama-era policies that worked to exclude Iraq’s Christian and other minority religious populations from key U.S. aid programs remain in place, the activists said.

Richard Visek, who was appointed by President Obama as head the State Department’s Office of Legal Adviser in October 2016, is behind the decision to remove the word “genocide” from official documents, according to Nina Shea, an international human rights lawyer who directs the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom.

College Students Learn The Words ‘Crazy,’ ‘Ghetto,’ And ‘Illegal Alien’ Aren’t Inclusive…

Even worse, they were also taught that phrases like ‘black lives mater’ are inclusive.

Via Daily Caller:

The University of Illinois at Chicago launched a campaign suggesting words like “crazy,” “ghetto,” and “illegal alien” are not “inclusive,” according to a Monday report.

The college’s “Words Matter!” campaign launched workshops in July to instruct university members on “the power of language,” according to The College Fix.

“At UIC, diversity is our strength — our competitive edge,” says UIC on the page detailing the campaign. “The purpose of the campaign is not to tell people what they can or cannot say (i.e., inhibit free speech) but rather to acknowledge that on a diverse campus each and everyone one of us has a responsibility to be aware of the power of our words to promote a more welcoming and inclusive campus environment.”

The page features a slideshow with individuals holding signs displaying terms like “crazy,” “ghetto,” and “illegal alien,” as well as expressions like “man up” and “what’s your real name?” The university also showcases terms like “undocumented” and “Black Lives Matter.”

Austrian Swimming Pool Posts Signs Banning Migrants From Female Changing Rooms And To Not To Grope Women

As effective as gun free zone signs.

Via The Sun:

One sign shows a man entering the women’s dressing room with the word “STOP!” and “entry is forbidden in non-designated areas” written next to it.

Another sign show a picture of a young teen in a bikini with three hands seemingly wanting to grope her.

It reads “NO!” and explains that “physical contact with other guests is forbidden”.

And while the signs featured English, French and Arabic text, there was no German translation, with the sign clearly not intended for local visitors.

Local citizens and politicians have reacted to the apparent necessity of such signs.

MP Christian Hoebart of the far-right Freedom Party of Austria (FPO), which is opposed to immigration, argued that the signs should not be needed in a “civilised society”.

Overnight Open Thread: World War II Vet, 92, Surprised With Honor Flight After Being Assaulted By Flag Vandals In Texas

Thank you for your service, sir. And thanks to the current marines who recognize it and the tremendous value and resource you are.

Via Fox News:

A 92-year-old legally blind veteran who was attacked by a group of people trying to vandalize flags at the man’s Texas home was surprised by fellow Marines on Sunday when they honored the vet with a special trip to Washington, D.C.

Earlier this month, Howard Banks said he heard noises coming from the area near the flagpole in front of his Kaufman home and went to find out what was going on. Vandals had previously shredded his United States and Marine Corps flags and thrown them in a ditch.

When he got outside, Banks said someone pushed him to the ground and then ran away. Banks had been blinded by a flare on Iwo Jima when he was 20, so he was not able to provide a full description of the attackers.

Howard Banks says vandals have previously shredded his United States and Marine Corps flags outside his Texas home.

Flashback: Democratic Delegates Boo The Boy Scouts Of America

Democrats are all atwitter over Trump’s speech to the Boy Scouts, claiming that he talked politics or made them cheer like Hitler Youth.

Here’s how hypocritical they are. They used politics all over the Boy Scouts, but booed them and attacked them.

Via Washington Times:

LOS ANGELES When Gloria Johnson learned that a group of Eagle Scouts was about to take the stage at the Democratic National Convention, she immediately went into action.

She and other California delegates grabbed poster board and markers and made signs that read, “We Support Gay Boy Scouts.” As the uniformed Scouts took part in the opening ceremony, the delegates, seated in the front of the hall, waved their signs and booed.

Under normal circumstances, jeering at children is the sort of behavior that might get a delegate sanctioned, if not booted from the convention altogether. But anyone who expected the Democratic leadership to scold the Boy Scouts of America bashers is attending the wrong convention.

Support for homosexual rights has become an integral part of the Democratic orthodoxy, as unassailable as the party’s pro-choice or civil rights planks. Since the Supreme Court ruled that the Boy Scouts can ban homosexual leaders, the Democrats have sided squarely with homosexuals in condemning the decision.

Indeed, Democratic National Committee spokesman Rick Hess was careful to avoid criticizing either the Boy Scouts or the delegates, instead stressing that the party is staunchly committed to homosexual rights.

Most Democrats support the work the Boy Scouts do,” said Mr. Hess. “At the same time, we want to see gays and lesbians treated with respect. Democrats across the board support equal rights for gays and lesbians and we want to make sure they’re not discriminated against.”

Mueller Probe: Meet The Lawyers Who Gave $$ To Hillary, Now Investigating Team Trump

Via Fox News:

President Trump’s tough criticism of Special Counsel Robert Mueller signals a renewed effort to challenge his investigators’ credibility over their track record of pro-Democratic political donations and other associations.

There is no shortage of examples to fuel the president’s case.

Of the 15 attorneys currently on staff for Mueller, at least seven have donated to Democratic candidates and campaigns, including Trump’s 2016 rival Hillary Clinton. The rest have not made political donations, according to federal records; and none of the attorneys on Mueller’s roster donated money to Trump.

“This is just a witch hunt—it’s all a hoax,” White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway told “Fox & Friends” last week after Trump criticized Mueller in a New York Times interview. “People should know what folks’ past motivations, and their political motivations are—these weren’t minor donations, these were significant donations by members of that team.”

Is Bernie Sanders Is Stealing His Neighbor’s ‘Washington Post’?

Hilarious. He’s just making sure it’s redistributed.

Via Daily Wire:

Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor’s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do.

In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he’s heard about the elderly senator from friends. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter took place, it was realized by the paying customer that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose.

Trump Has Boy Scouts Cheering At Their Jamboree

Liberals are absolutely blowing a gasket, claiming he’s making them a ‘Trump youth organization.’

Via IJR:

Speaking to thousands of boy scouts at the 2017 National Scout Jamboree on Monday, President Donald Trump enlisted the crowd to help him take a shot at former President Barack Obama.

And it sounded like many of them gladly participated.

“By the way, just a question: Did President Obama ever come to a Jamboree?” Trump asked.

The massive crowd responded with what sounded like a mix between thunderous boos and shouts of “no!”

Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, who all joined Trump on stage, shared a laugh with the president, who paused for comedic effect.

“And we’ll be back,” Trump finally said. “The answer’s no, but we’ll be back.”

Planned Parenthood’s New Guidelines Say Genitals Don’t Determine Gender

And having a brain and a soul doesn’t mean you actually use them competently. That’s Planned Parenthood’s problem.

Via Daily Caller:

Certain body parts don’t define male or female gender, according to Planned Parenthood’s updated guidelines on how parents should talk to their kids about sexuality.

Planned Parenthood has long been a believer in hard science, arguing that a fetus is just a clump of cells, but the organization now purports that genitals don’t make a child a boy or girl. While the old Planned Parenthood recommendations rely on science to talk to preschoolers about sexuality, the new guidelines reject former advice and expound upon gender details far beyond any normal preschooler’s comprehension.

The old guidelines advised parents to tell their kids that:

Women have breasts. Men don’t.
Boys have penises and girls have vulvas. I’m a woman — a girl who is all grown up — so I have a vulva instead of a penis. And you’re a boy, so you have a penis instead of a vulva.

Singer Lana Del Rey Confesses To Putting A Hex On Trump

And this is what we mean when we say liberalism is a disease.

Via Fox News:

Lana Del Rey revealed she tried to hex President Donald Trump earlier this year.

“Yeah, I did it. Why not? Look, I do a lot of s–t,” the 32-year-old singer told NME.

She explained, “I’m in line with Yoko [Ono] and John [Lennon] and the belief that there’s a power to the vibration of a thought… Your thoughts are very powerful things and they become words, and words become actions, and actions lead to physical changes.”

The “Summertime Sadness” songstress didn’t give specifics on what she was trying to do to Trump, but she gave some hints earlier this year.

In February, Del Rey posted a vague tweet that stated, “At the stroke of midnight Feb 24, March 26, April 24, May 23. Ingredients can b found online.”
