Overnight Open Thread: Mom Shares Hilarious Before And After Of Daughter’s First Day Of School

Via Fox 8:

NEILSTON, Scotland – A Scottish mother has perfectly captured how draining a child’s first day back at school can be.

Jillian Falconer, of Neilston, couldn’t resist sharing a side-by-side comparison of what her 5-year-old daughter Lucy looked like before – and after– her first day at school.

Lucy left the house tidily dressed, her tie perfectly tied and tucked into the waistband of her skirt, her hair brushed and her socks pulled up to her knees.

“When I went to pick her up from school and saw how she looked, I was mortified,” Falconer told local newspaper Barrhead News.

Crazy Anti-Trump Folks Tweet Their Encouragement For Walsh Entering Race

Anti-Trump crazies actually think that Republicans would vote for Joe Walsh.

Their delusion is hilarious. And Walsh thinks that being endorsed by these crazies is somehow an asset.

Russia conspiracy crazy Louise Mensch says she’ll contribute to him (which she likely can’t legally do, since she’s British).

‘Deep And Boiling Anger’: Poll Says Americans Are Still Very Fed Up With The Political Establishment

That bodes well for Trump, not so much for Biden…

Via Twitchy:

A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll indicates that the animosity toward the political establishment remains very strong, with 70 percent saying they are angry.

“Four years ago, we uncovered a deep and boiling anger across the country engulfing our political system,” said Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates, which conducted this survey in partnership with the Republican firm Public Opinion Strategies. “Four years later, with a very different political leader in place, that anger remains at the same level.”

The poll finds that 70 percent of Americans say they feel angry “because our political system seems to only be working for the insiders with money and power, like those on Wall Street or in Washington.” Forty-three percent say that statement describes them “very well.”

Bias Has Killed The New York Times — And Dean Baquet Fired The Fatal Shot

Via NY Post:

While reading the transcript of a New York Times staff meeting, a Lily Tomlin line came to mind: “No matter how cynical you get, it is impossible to keep up.”

In this case, it is also impossible not to be disheartened and furious. The transcript shows that the rot of bias at the Times is far beyond the pale and there is no hope of recovery. Yet not a single person there declared the obvious — that the paper is ­betraying its principles.

Rigor in reporting and restraint in judgment once made the Gray Lady noble. Now she is dead, her homicide an inside job.

The transcript, leaked to Slate, reveals a confederacy of ignorance and bigotry involving hundreds of people. The ringleader is executive editor Dean Baquet, who fires the fatal shot into the credibility of his paper.

By giving reporters and editors license to try to stop Donald Trump from becoming president, then letting them peddle the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax, Baquet helped unleash the ­hatred that is tearing America apart. Never before has a single media institution played such a destructive role in the nation’s life.

But Baquet is not finished. The 75-minute meeting shows he is now determined to ­destroy the president by painting him as a racist.

Jen Rubin: GOP Should Be ‘Burned Down’ With No ‘Survivors’

Wow, this is how crazy the leftist media is now. And all of them approve of this attitude.

Via Newsbusters:

On Sunday’s AM Joy on MSNBC, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin renewed her attack on former Donald Trump administration members as she declared that they should be “shunned” for the rest of the lives, and that the Republican Party should figuratively be “burned down” so that there are no “survivors,” punishing Trump’s “enablers.”

Her comments came as the group discussed former White House press secretaries Sean Spicer and Sarah Huckabee Sanders moving on to ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and the Fox News Channel, respectively, after leaving office.

At 11:04 a.m., host Joy Reid declared that “this is an extreme administration that is dangerous” and claimed that Hispanic Americans should carry their birth certificates to avoid being “scooped up and stolen” by ICE.

Rubin then repeated her call for “shunning” and “shaming” Trump administration members and complained that the University of Virginia had employed a former Trump staffer for a while. The disgruntled ex-Republican then aimed further vitriol at her former party:

New York Times Melts Down That Trump Allies Might Fight Back And Call Them Out For Their Hypocrisy

They’re upset that people have the temerity to actually point out the truth.

New Group Launches To Warn Young People About Socialism

Going up against a whole lot of school and peer indoctrination.

Via Fox News:

The popularity of socialism in the United States is on the rise, especially with young people.

A recent Gallup poll found 58 percent of Americans ages 18 to 34 think socialism is good for the country, and democratic socialist politicians like Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez enjoy broad support from millennial and Generation Z voters.

Morgan Zegers is determined to change their minds.

The 22-year-old Zegers recently founded a nonprofit organization called Young Americans Against Socialism, with the aim of using social media to expose the “failures of socialism” and make capitalism cool again.

“Socialism is such a threat to this country,” Zegers told Fox News. “It really troubles me.”

Climate Alarmists Foiled: No U.S. Warming Since 2005

Whoops…

Via Real Clear Energy:

When American climate alarmists claim to have witnessed the effects of global warming, they must be referring to a time beyond 14 years ago. That is because there has been no warming in the United States since at least 2005, according to updated data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

In January 2005, NOAA began recording temperatures at its newly built U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN). USCRN includes 114 pristinely maintained temperature stations spaced relatively uniformly across the lower 48 states. NOAA selected locations that were far away from urban and land-development impacts that might artificially taint temperature readings.

Prior to the USCRN going online, alarmists and skeptics sparred over the accuracy of reported temperature data. With most preexisting temperature stations located in or near urban settings that are subject to false temperature signals and create their own microclimates that change over time, government officials performed many often-controversial adjustments to the raw temperature data. Skeptics of an asserted climate crisis pointed out that most of the reported warming in the United States was non-existent in the raw temperature data, but was added to the record by government officials.

Fox’s Brit Hume: Biden Mistakes Suggest ‘Memory Loss Associated With Senility’

And the media is talking about Trump, when Biden doesn’t even know what state he’s in?

Via Fox News:

Fox News’ Brit Hume expressed concern on Saturday that Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden’s string of recent gaffes may be a sign of “senility.”

While campaigning in New Hampshire over the weekend, Biden appeared to confuse the state with Vermont when asked how he was enjoying his time there. The mistake comes as the latest in a series from the former vice president in recent weeks, and Hume took note.

“Biden has always made gaffes by the bushel, but some his recent ones suggest the kind of memory loss associated with senility,” the Fox News analyst tweeted. “E.G: This one, plus forgetting remembering he was not vp when meeting Parkland students, twice confusing Theresa May with Margaret Thatcher.”

CNN Has On Duke Psychiatrist Who Claims Trump ‘May Be Responsible For Many More Million Deaths’ Than Hitler, Stalin, And Mao

Notice how the people who are questioning Trump’s sanity are the ones that are truly bonkers.

Via Washington Examiner:

The former chairman of the Psychiatry Department at Duke University claimed on CNN that President Trump is as bad as the worst dictators of the 20th century, and that his presidency might lead to even more deaths than they did.

While debating the merits of having psychiatrists come out with possible mental health diagnoses on Trump, Dr. Allen Frances said it was an insult to the mentally ill to compare them to him.

Frances, who is against psychiatrists violating the “Goldwater Rule,” told CNN doing so will stigmatize people with mental illnesses.

Hong Kong Police Pull Guns, Fire Warning Shot After Clash With Protesters

Police ramped up the violence, firing water cannons and teargas at protesters.

A small group of protesters clashed with police, fighting back and beating the police. That’s when at least three of the police pulled their guns and one fired a warning shot.

One of the officers then kicked an older man kneeling before them begging them not to fire on the protesters. The police also aimed their weapons at the journalists who were near the man.

The police also appear to have beaten and arrested this guy who wasn’t a protester for no reason.

Trump Says US, Japan Have Agreed ‘In Principle’ To Bilateral Trade Deal

Good news.

Via The Hill:

President Trump said Sunday that the U.S. and Japan have agreed “in principle” to a bilateral trade deal involving agriculture and digital products.

Trump told reporters during a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the Group of Seven summit that he expected the two countries to officially sign the pact during the United Nations General Assembly meeting in September.

“We have been working on a deal with Japan for a long time,” Trump said. “It involves agriculture. It involves e-commerce. It involves many things. We’ve agreed in principle.”

“We’ve agreed to every point, and now we’re papering it and we’ll be signing it at a formal ceremony,” Trump said, adding that the Japanese will be buying significant amounts of U.S. corn.

Joe Walsh Says He Will Run As Republican To Primary Trump

This guy is a joke and he’s spent the last two years pushing the resistance line. Trump has over 90% popularity in the party. Neither Walsh or Weld, the other Republican in the race, have any constituency.

Via Fox News:

Former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh announced Sunday morning that he is running for president as a Republican, challenging President Trump in the GOP primary race.

“Friends, I’m in. We can’t take four more years of Donald Trump. And that’s why I’m running for President,” Walsh tweeted. “It won’t be easy, but bravery is never easy. But together, we can do it.”

The Tea Party favorite sat down with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos for an interview airing Sunday morning, in which he explained why he decided to enter the race.

NBC News Proclaims That Heterosexuality Is “Just Not Working”

Media keeps trying to push us over the edge.

Via Red State:

Makes sense.

If you thought things couldn’t get crazier this week, I present this NBC News editorial for your consideration. Someone in their newsroom apparently thought it would be a good idea to publish an editorial praising the destruction of marriages as a triumph over the patriarchy because everything is stupid.

Over the past week, an assortment of trending stories — from Jeffrey Epstein to the Dayton and El Paso mass shooters, to Miley Cyrus’s separation and Julianne Hough’s declaration that she’s “not straight” — together have laid bare the strictures of an American patriarchy on the edge of a nervous breakdown. As the status quo, heterosexuality is just not working.

Hong Kong Protesters Form 28-Mile Human Chain Demanding Freedom

Via NBC:

HONG KONG — Hand-in-hand, protesters formed a 28-mile human chain across 39 train stations in Hong Kong on Friday.

The demonstrators sang songs as they held small signs that said, “Thank you for supporting freedom and democracy.”

The latest demonstration in the 11-week movement that stemmed from outrage over a proposed extradition bill was inspired by 1989 protests across Baltic states.

On Aug. 23, 1989, the so-called Baltic Way involved 2 million Latvians, Lithuanians and Estonians protesting Soviet domination of the region.

“I joined the Hong Kong Way because it’s peaceful,” protester Peter Cheung, 27, told Reuters, referring to the campaign’s name. “This is the 30th anniversary of the Baltic Way. I hope there will be a bigger chance to make an international noise.”

Jeffrey Epstein, The Bullet, And The Severed Cat Head

Via Hot Air:

Since the allegations about Jeffrey Epstein began making news more than a decade ago, there have been stories about how Epstein used private investigators to discourage some of the young women he had abused from participating in the legal effort against him. CNN re-reported on a few of these stories last month in the wake of Epstein’s arrest:

At least three private investigators who police believed were working on Epstein’s behalf tracked down accusers and possible witnesses to the alleged attacks, according to the police reports. They sat in black SUVs outside the homes of accusers, questioned their current and former boyfriends, and chased one parent’s car off the road, according to police reports and a lawyer for three accusers. Epstein’s current attorney Reid Weingarten denied in a court filing Thursday any knowledge of the alleged car chase and said if it happened, it was not authorized by Epstein.
