Hero Nun Of WWII Dies At Age 103

Stories we should never forget.

Via Daily Caller:

The “Angel of Dieppe,” a nun whose efforts in caring for wounded soldiers in World War II became legend, died Friday at age 103.

Sister Agnès-Marie Valois of Canada earned her legendary status as the Angel of Dieppe during the Battle of Dieppe on August 19, 1942. On that day, more than 3,000 of the approximately 6,100 troops, who tried to storm the French town of Dieppe, were killed or captured. Sister Agnès tended to the wounded on the beach and later at the Hôtel-Dieu. The courage with which she braved the battlefield to care for the wounded inspired several military legends, according to BBC.

A dying soldier asked Valois to kiss him like his mother would, she recounted in a 2010 interview. She did so, and he died shortly thereafter. When Sister Agnès saw a German officer about to shoot a wounded Allied soldier, she stood between them and told the German soldier he would have to kill her first, according to another legend. Sister Agnès went beyond the normal responsibilities of a nurse, as exemplified in her care for Sgt. André Michaud of Fusiliers Mont-Royal, who had to have his arm amputated.

Via Daily Caller:

Toronto Mayor John Tory encouraged residents to remember their city’s worldwide reputation for tolerance and inclusiveness — hours after a man mowed down pedestrians with a rental van, killing at least nine people and injuring several more.

Waffle House Shooting Suspect Arrested Near His Apartment Complex

Via Free Beacon:

The suspected gunman in the Waffle House shooting that resulted in the death of four people and injury of four others outside Nashville, Tennessee, was taken into custody on Monday afternoon after being on the run since early Sunday morning.

Metropolitan Nashville Police announced suspect Travis Reinking was apprehended–fully clothed after reported to have been naked except for a jacket while leaving the Waffle House–in a wooded area not far from his apartment complex, according to the Associated Press.

Reinking, described as a white man with brown hair, opened fire with an AR-15 in the Waffle House parking lot and then stormed the restaurant shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday, police say. Four people were killed and four others were injured before a quick-thinking customer wrestled the assault weapon away, preventing more bloodshed. Reinking then disappeared, police said.

Police say about 20 people were in the Waffle House at the time of the shootings. They included people of different races and ethnicities, but the four people killed were minorities_three black and one Hispanic.

Feminist Columnist: I’m Proud My Second-Grader Is Being Indoctrinated About Transgenderism And Sexuality

And the sign explaining addition is actually even worse.

Via Daily Wire:

On Monday, feminist writer Jessica Valenti made clear just why so many conservatives now homeschool their children. She tweeted out an explanation to conservatives about LGBTQ language, and added that her second-grader was learning about it:

Now, you might be asking yourself why a seven-year-old girl needs to learn about sexual desire at all, let alone homosexual sexual desire; you might be asking yourself why a seven-year-old should be indoctrinated about children being “assigned male or female at birth” when such language is the language of anti-scientific nonsense.

But according to Valenti, you would be the degraded one. After all, school teachers should certainly inform pre-pubescent children about matters of moral and scientific controversy. But, you might answer, young children don’t have the critical thinking skills necessary to ask important questions about this framework.

Yeti, Under Barrage Of Criticism, Digs Deeper, Claims NRA Lied About Their Breakup

Via Daily Caller:

YETI Coolers released a statement Monday responding to outrage over severing ties with the NRA.

They’ve been in the news nonstop after the NRA released the following statement explaining how the relationship between the two organizations came to an unexpected end.

For years YETI Coolers have been a hot item for sportsmen at the Friends of NRA Foundation Banquet and Auction events around the country.

These Foundation events raise money to support youth programs and educational programs nationwide. The youth of America who benefit from these programs are the future hunters, hikers, fishermen/women, bikers, campers, wildlife photographers, mountain climbers, sportsmen/women and conservationists who will protect our natural resources and recreational lands.

Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why. They will only say they will no longer sell products to The NRA Foundation. That certainly isn’t sportsmanlike. In fact, YETI should be ashamed. They have declined to continue helping America’s young people enjoy outdoor recreational activities. These activities enable them to appreciate America and enjoy our natural resources with wholesome and healthy
outdoor recreational and educational programs.

Well, YETI has a very different take on the situation, and straight up claimed that the NRA was lying with “inaccurate statements.”

Parkland Student Kyle Kashuv Questioned By Police At School For Going To Shooting Range With His Father

This is insane. These very same people did absolutely nothing about Nikolas Cruz and are still ignoring people who should be arrested under the Obam edict. But they’ll harass Kyle for criticizing them and doing something completely legal.

Via Daily Wire:

On Friday, Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv went to the gun range to learn to fire a gun for the first time, alongside his father. He tweeted this:

According to Kyle, “My dad was there and I shot with an AR-15. After, I posted a few pictures and videos.”

Kashuv was quickly called out for visiting a gun range and posting about it by a variety of other students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. But that wasn’t the end of the story. When Kyle went to school today, his principal informed him that other students had been upset by his posts, but that he hadn’t done anything wrong. But according to Kyle, in the middle of the morning, events took a different turn:

Near the end of third period, my teacher got a call from the office saying I need to go down and see a Mr. Greenleaf. I didn’t know Mr. Greenleaf, but it turned out that he was an armed school resource officer. I went down and found him, and he escorted me to his office. Then a second security officer walked in and sat behind me. Both began questioning me intensely. First, they began berating my tweet, although neither of them had read it; then they began aggressively asking questions about who I went to the range with, whose gun we used, about my father, etc. They were incredibly condescending and rude.

#BoycottYeti Movement Explodes: Americans Shoot, Slice, Crush, Destroy Coolers

Yeti, tough enough to transport tofu and kale. Update to this story. Not tough enough to continue supporting NRA Foundation that helped kids and youth education.

Via Breitbart:

On April 21 Breitbart News reported on a NRA-ILA statement which said Yeti Coolers had cut ties with the NRA Foundation.

The statement, written by former NRA president and USF executive director Marion Hammer, said, “Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why. They will only say they will no longer sell products to The NRA Foundation.”[…]

WBTW reported that Hartsville, South Carolina, resident Bryan Atkinson loaded his Yeti Cooler with 22 pounds of Tannerite and proclaimed, “This Yeti ain’t ready.”

He said, “Yeti can’t stand behind the NRA, I ain’t standing behind Yeti no more.”

Atkinson’s called out, “Hashtag Yeti, Hashtag NRA, Hashtag AR-15,” then had his friend take the Yeti out in a middle of field and set down the cooler. Atkinson hit it with the second shot and the explosion was huge.

Former President George H.W. Bush Hospitalized After Contracting Infection

Via Fox News:

Former President George H.W. Bush was hospitalized on Sunday after an infection he contracted spread to his blood, his spokesman said Monday. The announcement of the hospitalization comes just days after Bush’s wife, Barbara, died at age 92.

“President Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital yesterday morning after contracting an infection that spread to his blood,” Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement. “He is responding to treatments and appears to be recovering. We will issue additional updates as events warrant.”

Bush, 93, was hospitalized last April due to a “mild case of pneumonia.” Earlier in 2017 he was hospitalized for 16 days, also to be treated for pneumonia. He was temporarily placed on a ventilator and was treated in the intensive care unit. His wife was also hospitalized around the same time to treat a case of bronchitis.

Breaking: Van Strikes Pedestrians In Toronto, Killing 9, Driver ID’d As Alek Minassian…UPDATE: Bill Bratton Said Known To Police, Terror Suspect

Another known lone wolf?

Via CBS:

A van struck and killed nine pedestrians Monday afternoon in north Toronto and the driver fled the scene, Canadian police said. Sixteen others were injured in the incident. Authorities said the van has been found and the driver was in custody. Police said they did not yet know the cause or any possible motive.

CBS News sources identified the suspect as Alek Minassian, 25.

U.S. law enforcement sources told CBS News that the incident appears to be a deliberate act. Witnesses said the driver was moving fast and appeared to be acting deliberately.

Minister of Public Safety Ralph Goodale said that it was too soon to say whether the crash was a case of international terrorism and that the government had not raised its terrorism alert.

Toronto Police Services Deputy Chief Peter Yuen released no details about the investigation as he announced the casualties.[…]

The driver was heading south on busy Yonge Street around 1:30 p.m. and the streets were crowded with people enjoying an unseasonably warm day when the van jumped onto the sidewalk.

Ali Shaker, who was driving near the van at the time, told Canadian broadcast outlet CP24 that the driver appeared to be moving deliberately through the crowd at more than 30 mph.

“He just went on the sidewalk,” a distraught Shaker said. “He just started hitting everybody, man. He hit every single person on the sidewalk. Anybody in his way he would hit.”

Tom Arnold Tells Black Female Conservative To ‘Suck Racist D*ck,’ Calls Shaun King A Hero. She Levels Them Both

Candace Owens posted this.

Then she got love from Kanye West and Roseanne.

That caused a liberal implosion. And she was attacked by three white men – Perez Hilton, Tom Arnold and Shaun King.

Arnold told her to “suck a racist dick” and praised a “true social justice warrior,” Shaun King. Apparently, Arnold doesn’t know Shaun is white, calling it a conspiracy and attacking his ex-wife, Roseanne.

Then Owens leveled him and Shaun King.

Maybe three white men, particularly one pretending to be black, shouldn’t be telling a black woman what her blackness can encompass?

CUNY Socialist Students Demand Elimination Of ROTC Program, “Don’t Die For The Rich”…

Yeah, because no rich people live in New York City.

Via Campus Reform:

The Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDSA) at The City College of New York (CCNY) is demanding that the school remove the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) from campus.

On April 20, an individual posted a picture of a CCNY YDSA poster via Twitter bearing the header “R.O.T.C OFF OUR CAMPUS,” and sub-header, “The Rich Will Never Die For You Don’t Die For The Rich.”

Additionally, the top of the poster presents a quote purportedly taken from the American Enterprise Institute declaring that “The absence of ROTC in CUNY prevents the military from taking full advantage of their large, ethnically diverse populations. The plan is to put the diversity of the CUNY student body in service of the U.S. military, especially as military engagements are increasingly in the Middle East and the global South.”

While the first sentence appears to be taken from a 2011 case study into the tumultuous history of ROTC programs in New York City, however, the second sentence does not appear anywhere in the paper.

Resistance Hero Joy Reid Claims Newly Discovered Homophobic Posts From Her Blog Were ‘Fabricated’

One problem: She’s lying.

Via Mediaite:

Mediaite has obtained a series of homophobic posts from Joy Ann Reid’s old blog that she denies were actually written by her.

In an exclusive statement to Mediaite, the MSNBC host claims these posts from The Reid Report — which include defending homophobia, gay jokes, and the outright mocking of gay people and homosexuality — were somehow put in by an “external party” that “manipulated material from my now-defunct blog.”

While Reid apologized in December for writing homophobic contenton a blog she ran long before her days as an icon of the #Resistance movement, she claims these new posts opposing gay marriage and cringing “at the sight of two men kissing” were part of a “fabricated” outside effort to paint her as “offensive and hateful.”

These anti-gay articles from The Reid Report, a site that pre-dated Reid’s former MSNBC show of the same name, were originally shared on Twitter by user Jamie_Maz who found them using the Wayback Machine — an Internet archiving service that takes periodic screenshots of popular web pages to preserve them.

Man Fined For Hate Crime After Filming Pug’s “Nazi Salutes”…

Dog whistle!

Via Daily Beast:

A Scottish man who filmed a pet dog giving Nazi salutes and uploaded the footage to YouTube has been fined £800 (around $1,120). Mark Meechan, who goes by the name of Count Dankula on his social-media pages, recorded his girlfriend’s pug responding to statements such as “Sieg Heil” and “Gas the Jews” by raising its paw. Meechan, from Coatbridge in Scotland, was found guilty last month of committing a hate crime and was in court to hear his sentence Monday. His case has been taken up by free-speech campaigners and comedians such as Ricky Gervais, who tweeted last month: “A man has been convicted in a UK court of making a joke that was deemed ‘grossly offensive.’ If you don’t believe in a person’s right to say things that you might find ‘grossly offensive,’ then you don’t believe in Freedom of Speech.” Meechan has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, saying he made the video to annoy his girlfriend.

LaWana Mayfield’s Sorry For 9/11 Post But Doesn’t Say If Plane Took Down Twin Towers

She can’t stop digging. Update to this story.

Via The News and Observer:

Charlotte City Council member LaWana Mayfield apologized on the WCNC show “Flashpoint” for “the hurt and pain” due to her social media post about an “alleged plane” in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

But in the interview, which aired Sunday morning, Mayfield did not say definitively whether she believed the World Trade Center towers fell because they were hit by two jetliners hijacked by terrorists.

Host Ben Thompson asked Mayfield: “Do you believe the planes took down those towers?”

Mayfield responded: “What I believe is that we lost Americans during this event. What I believe is that after this event, our nation identified a segment of our community and said this community is now terrorists. And from that moment, we have been saying ‘terrorists, terrorists, terrorists.’ ” But, she said, “white Americans who have committed mass killings since that time” were not called “terrorists.”

Turkish-Backed Islamist Rebels Tell Yazidis In Syria To Convert To Islam Or Die…

Via The Independent:

The Yazidis, who were recently the target of massacre, rape and sex slavery by Isis, are now facing forcible conversion to Islam under the threat of death from Turkish-backed forces which captured the Kurdish enclave of Afrin on 18 March. Islamist rebel fighters, who are allied to Turkey and have occupied Yazidi villages in the area, have destroyed the temples and places of worship the Kurdish-speaking non-Islamic sect according to local people.

Shekh Qamber, a 63-year-old Syrian Kurdish Yazidi farmer who fled his town of Qastel Jindo in Afrin, described in an exclusive interview with The Independent what happened to Yazidis who refused to leave their homes. He said that some were forcibly brought to a mosque by Islamists to be converted, while others, including a 70-year-old man he knew, were being lured there by offers of food and medical attention.

Even the place names of Yazidi villages are being changed. Mr Qamber recounted a conversation he had with an Islamist militant who had arrested and questioned him near the town of Azaz when he was trying to escape. He was asked by his interrogator where he was from and he replied that he was from Qastel Jindo. The Islamist, whose groups often describe themselves as belonging to the Free Syrian Army (FSA), said: “it’s no more Qastel Jindo. It’s al-Quds now. We will give it the name of Palestine’s capital. These areas were occupied by the infidels and now it is [going] back to their original owners and original names … We came here to regain our lands and behead you.”
