2-Year-Old With Cancer Gets Surprise Daddy-Daughter Dance

Via WISTV:

A daddy-daughter dance is melting hearts across the internet.

Brett Thompson’s wife posted a video of him surprising their 2-year-old daughter Phoenix in the hospital last week.

“Today on Phee’s last day of chemo on her first round and Daddy came to visit,” Christina Thompson posted on Facebook. “Little did we know he had some surprises for us.”

The little girl is at a children’s cancer center in Atlanta fighting acute myeloid leukemia – an aggressive cancer of the blood and bone marrow.

When the chemo wrapped up, her mom said a nurse came into the room and dressed Phoenix in a yellow princess gown.

Then, Brett Thompson entered wearing a suit.

Surrounded by stuffed animals, the two danced to Tim McGraw’s “My Little Girl.”

MSNBC Guest Dismisses Mollie Tibbetts as Some ‘Girl in Iowa’ ‘Fox News Is Talking About’

Fordham University professor.

Via Newsbusters:

Appearing on MSNBC’s The Beat early Tuesday night, frequent MSNBC guest and Fordham University professor Christina Greer smeared the memory of late University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts as “a girl in Iowa” that “Fox News is talking about” instead of going all-in on the plea deal for Michael Cohen and the verdict in the Paul Manafort trial.

Both legal stories dominated Fox News Channel programming on Tuesday with multiple segments every hour, but that didn’t stop Greer from making that sweeping generalization and trivializing the death of a young college student allegedly at the hands of an illegal alien from Mexico.

Greer built up to its sickening low blow when she told fill-in host Ali Velshi that, concerning Trump scandals, she’s “been ringing the alarm on this show for months now, the separation of powers is not working because the Republican has not stood up to this president not once.”

Flashback: Obama Campaign Fined Big for Hiding Donors, Keeping Illegal Donations

Let’s compare reactions:

Virtually no coverage of this story. Certainly, no FBI at the door with a “no-knock” warrant.

Via US News:

BARACK OBAMA’S presidential campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating federal disclosure laws, Politico reports.

An FEC audit of Obama for America’s 2008 records found the committee failed to disclose millions of dollars in contributions and dragged its feet in refunding millions more in excess contributions.

The resulting fine, one of the largest ever handed down by the FEC, is the result of a failure to disclose or improperly disclosing thousands of contributions to Obama for America during the then-senator’s 2008 presidential run, documents show.

Compared to today, based on an allegation:

Everyone should be looked at equally under the law and if they committed a crime, prosecuted. But part of the problem of the Obama administration was people who committed obvious crimes got away with it. And we’re still seeing that unequal treatment under the law now.

Maximum Trump Derangement Syndrom: Leftists Upset That Trump Deports Nazi War Criminal

Apparently deporting a Nazi is now proof of your white supremacy.

Via Daily Wire:

Tuesday morning, the Trump Administration announced that it had struck a deal with Germany to return the last remaining Nazi on American soil after more than a decade of negotiations, and that the (much hated) Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency had descended on the Queens home of 95-year-old Jakiw Palij.

You’d think that there’s nothing more unifying than deporting a Nazi prison camp guard, but you would be wrong. Somehow, leftists, including a writer at GQ and a content creator for the left-leaning site, Upworthy, were pretty miffed that Trump — and ICE — got the win.

“New media artist” Thom Dunn was adamant that nabbing the Nazi was actually part of a nefarious plot on the part of the Trump Administration to disguise its own Nazi connections.

Trump Responds To Manafort Verdict

Seems pretty composed.

Via Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump reacted for the first time to the guilty verdict found in special counsel Robert Mueller’s case against Paul Manafort.

Manafort was found guilty of 8 counts relating to tax and bank fraud in federal court in Virginia Tuesday. The jury was unable to reach a verdict in the remaining 10 counts.

“I feel very sad about that. It doesn’t involve me, but I still feel it is a very sad thing that happened. It has nothing to do with Russian collusion,” Trump said, adding “this started as Russian collusion. This has absolutely nothing to do. This is a witch hunt that is a disgrace. It has nothing to do with what they started out looking for Russians involved in the campaign.”

Asia Argento Denies Sex Assault Allegations, Says Anthony Bourdain Paid Accuser

Bourdain can’t corroborate her story.

Via Fox News:

Actress Asia Argento reportedly denied sexual assault allegations levied against her and said that her late boyfriend Anthony Bourdain paid her accuser Jimmy Bennett because the then-couple considered him “dangerous” after he asked for financial assistance.

“I strongly deny and oppose the contents of the New York Times article dated 20 August 2018, as circulated also in national and international news,” Argento said in a statement given to reporter Yashar Ali. “I am deeply shocked and hurt by having read news that is absolutely false. I have never had any sexual relationship with Bennett.”

On Sunday, The New York Times published an article claiming that Argento was accused by child star Bennett of setting up a sexual encounter with him in California when he was 17 – below the age of consent in that state – and she was 37.

Argento – one of the first prominent women to accuse disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault – went on to say she was linked to Bennett by “friendship only” which ended when he made “an exorbitant request of money” amid financial problems. Argento said her then boyfriend, CNN star Bourdain, decided to pay Bennett.

Breaking: Judge Gives No Jail Time For Imran Awan In Plea Deal, Says He “Suffered Enough”

Meanwhile, this guy gets off with nothing. Good day for the swamp.

Via Daily Caller:

A federal judge declined to give jail time to former Democratic IT aide Imran Awan Tuesday, saying he has “suffered enough” at the hands of politicians “at the highest levels of government.” In addition, the Department of Justice said it did not find any evidence that supported criminal charges.

Imran choked back tears, saying, “We want to thank the prosecution, the FBI and the Capitol Police,” while his lawyer submitted a letter referring to President Donald Trump, Sen. Chuck Grassley and other Republications as “deranged,” “pathetic” and “without a shred of decency.”

Judge Tanya Chutkin gave Imran three months of supervised release. Imran’s attorney had hoped to avoid the supervision, indicating Imran wanted to go back to Pakistan: “By ending this today, you will allow Hina to build her family wherever she chooses and allow Imran to visit his father’s grave and secure his legacy,” the attorney said.

Breaking: Michael Cohen Accepts Plea Deal, Says Committed Campaign Finance Violation At ‘Direction Of Candidate’

This contradicted what he said previously, so his credibility as a witness is not good. And if Trump didn’t pay for it out of campaign funds, it’s not a violation.

Via Fox News:

Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal attorney, admitted Tuesday to violating federal campaign finance law by paying $130,000 in hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels in October 2016 “at the direction” of then-candidate Trump. — as part of a plea deal in connection with the financial fraud investigation against him.

As part of a plea deal in connection with the financial fraud investigation against him, Cohen pleaded guilty to five counts of tax evasion, one count of making a false statement to a financial institution, one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporate contribution, and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution.

Cohen could receive up to 65 years in prison. However, a source familiar with the deal told Fox News that Cohen will only be jailed for between three and five years. The deal does not involve a cooperation agreement with federal prosecutors.

Breaking: Jury Finds Manafort Guilty On Eight Counts

Good job media, intimidating the jury. And still no collusion and nothing to do with the campaign.

Via Fox News:

A federal jury in Virginia convicted former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on eight counts related to bank and tax fraud, making him the first campaign associate of President Trump found guilty by a jury as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.

But in a note passed to Judge T.S. Ellis III on Tuesday afternoon, the jury said it could not come to a decision on the ten other counts. A mistrial was declared on those counts.

Before the jury was dismissed, Ellis asked jurors if they wanted their names to remain confidential. All immediately answered yes. The judge told them they are allowed to speak to the press if they choose to do so.

SJW Protesters Tear Down ‘Silent Sam’ Statue During Protests At UNC

Police stood by and watched the vandalism.

Via WBTV:

Several hundred people gathered on the University of North Carolina’s campus Monday night to protest the “Silent Sam” statue.

Protesters knocked down the statue around 9:20 p.m. Monday.

Fall semester classes begin Tuesday at UNC.

Protestors were calling for the statue’s immediate removal. One student vowed to wear a noose around his neck until it was taken down.

UNC police told CBS 17 that one person who attended the rally was arrested and charged with resisting arrest.

Before the statue was torn down, protesters marched down Franklin Street towards Carrboro following the rally at Silent Sam on campus.

Chapel Hill police had to shut down Franklin Street between Raleigh Street and Church Street.

Protesters then toppled the statue back on campus.

“Silent Sam” was set to be discussed for the first time in a state meeting on Wednesday.

UNC Board of Governors Chair Harry Smith said in a recent statement that the board “respects each of the varying opinions within the University community concerning this matter.” However, he also noted that “neither UNC-Chapel Hill nor the UNC System have the legal authority to unilaterally relocate the Silent Sam statue.”

Russian Hackers Targeted U.S. Conservative Think-Tanks, Says Microsoft

Taking a break from hacking the Democrats.

(Reuters) – Hackers linked to Russia’s government tried to target the websites of two right-wing U.S. think-tanks, suggesting they were broadening their attacks in the build-up to November elections, Microsoft said on Monday.

The software giant said it had thwarted the attempts last week by taking control of sites that hackers had designed to mimic the pages of The International Republican Institute and The Hudson Institute. Users were redirected to fake pages where they were asked to enter usernames and passwords.

There was no immediate comment from Russian authorities, but the Kremlin was expected to address the report later on Tuesday. It has regularly dismissed accusations that it has used hackers to influence U.S. elections and political opinion.

Casting such allegations as part of an anti-Russian campaign designed to justify new sanctions on Russia, it says it wants to improve not worsen ties with Washington.

“We’re concerned that these and other attempts pose security threats to a broadening array of groups connected with both American political parties in the run-up to the 2018 elections,” Microsoft said in a blog post overnight.

The International Republican Institute has a roster of high-profile Republican board members, including Senator John McCain of Arizona who has criticized U.S. President Donald trump’s interactions with Russia, and Moscow’s rights record.

The Hudson Institute, another conservative group, has hosted discussions on topics including cybersecurity, according to Microsoft. It has also examined the rise of kleptocracy, especially in Russia and has been critical of the Russian government, the New York Times reported.

“They (the Russians) are pursuing attacks that they perceive in their own national self-interest,” said Eric Rosenbach, the director of the Defending Digital Democracy project at Harvard University, on Monday to the New York Times.

“It’s about disrupting and diminishing any group that challenges how Putin’s Russia is operating at home and around the world.”

At UCLA, 20 Paid Diversity Advocates Isn’t Enough

Paid for with student loans (tuition).

Via Campus Reform:

The University of California, Los Angeles hopes to pay more students to fight “toxic masculinity” and “microaggressions” on campus, just two weeks after announcing it had already hired 20 foot soldiers for its social justice army.

Hosted by the UCLA Intergroup Relations Program, the Diversity Peer Leaders project is a year-long internship during which students are paid $13 per hour to facilitate workshops on social justice issues and intercultural communication.

Two weeks ago, school officials confirmed that 20 students have been hired, at an estimated annual cost of up to $42,000. Reached by Campus Reform, a spokesman claimed that the project is not funded by taxpayers, but rather, by the Student Services Fee.

That $376-per-quarter fee is not optional. Over a standard four-year degree, the fee amounts to at least $4,512—more if a student takes longer to graduate.

Despite mounting criticism of the program since Campus Reform initially broke the story, UCLA has since chosen to hire even more students, announcing on Tuesday that it hopes to recruit an unspecified number of graduate students to the program, too.

“Attention friends of IGR! We have re-opened applications for GRADUATE students who want to be paid Diversity Peer Leaders for 2018-2019! Check out the application… and please share it with friends!” notes the August 14 Facebook post.

Dem Sen. Gillibrand: Trump Attack On Me “Clearly A Sexist Smear”…

Via CBS News:

In an interview to air Sunday on “Face the Nation,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand responded to President Trump’s latest attack on the New York Democrat, accusing the president of renewing “a sexist smear” against her.

“I think it was a very weak attack, and frankly I was surprised it was the best he could do,” Gillibrand told Margaret Brennan, moderator of “Face the Nation.”

The president’s broadside this week came at a fundraising event for Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney, who is running for re-election in New York’s 22nd Congressional District.

“She’s been up to my office looking for campaign contributions. And she’s very aggressive on contributions. But she’s not aggressive on getting things done,” the president said Monday of Gillibrand, to broad laughter from the Utica, N.Y. crowd.

“The president refuses to acknowledge the work I’ve gotten done,” Gillibrand tweeted Monday in response to the president’s remarks this week. “Sound familiar ladies?”

The New York Democrat took a similar tack in her interview Wednesday.

“It’s intended to be a sexist smear intended to devalue, to denigrate me, as he’s done to women across the board,” Gillibrand told Brennan.

Texas Professors Lawsuit Against Campus Carry Rejected By Fifth Circuit Court

Back to the dildo protest. Update to this story.

Via Ammo Land:

A longshot appeal to the Fifth Circuit, to stop Texas Campus carry, has been rejected by a unanimous three-judge panel of the Court. Three professors at the University of Texas had filed the case on novel grounds. From uscourts.gov:

Three professors from the University of Texas at Austin challenged a Texas law permitting the concealed carry of handguns on campus and a corresponding University policy prohibiting professors from banning such weapons in their classrooms. The professors argued that the law and policy violate the First Amendment, Second Amendment, and Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The district court dismissed the claims.

We AFFIRM.

Two years ago, in July of 2016, three academics associated with the University of Texas sued the Texas AG, Ken Paxton, and several University of Texas officials. They were desperately attempting to stop Campus carry in Texas, where some students who had Texas carry permits were allowed to carry personal defensive firearms on campus. The firearms had to be concealed.

A year later, Judge Lee Yeakel dismissed the case, on the grounds that the plaintiffs had not suffered any harm. Therefore they had no standing to sue. The professors decided to appeal to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. All of the professors are women. One, Dr. Glass, is a Liberal Arts Professor. The other two, Dr. Lisa Moore and Dr. Mia Carter, are professors of English. That may explain their ability to construct the novel arguments used in the case. […]

At the Fifth Circuit, the three-judge panel dismissed the appeal because merely claiming you are frightened of a possible outcome does not violate First Amendment protections. The Second Amendment protects the right of individuals to keep and bear arms, not the right of the state to restrict individuals from keeping and bearing arms.
