White House: ‘Embittered’ World War II Veterans Should Get Over Pearl Harbor Attack…


Via Daily Caller:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said during a press conference Monday it was natural for World War II veterans to be “embittered” about Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Pearl Harbor, but they should get over it for the sake of America.

It was announced Monday that Abe will be the first Japanese leader to visit Pearl Harbor since it was hit by a surprise attack that killed 2,403 Americans and brought the U.S. into World War II. The visit reciprocates President Barack Obama’s visit to Hiroshima earlier this year for the anniversary of the atomic bomb attack on the city.

Abe said in a short statement he would pray for those who died in the war, but gave no indication he would express regret for Japan’s surprise attack.

VIDEO: Sanctuary Campus Supporters Willing To Ignore Other Laws

Proof that going to an institution of “higher education” these days makes kids stupid. These special snowflakes from George Washington University think that illegal aliens have a “right” to go to GWU. They also want sanctuary from exams, underage drinking laws and payment of school loans.

Via Campus Reform:

Students across the country are asking for their schools to be “sanctuary campuses” for undocumented students, meaning university administrators would ignore federal immigration law and refuse to share information about undocumented students with immigration officials.

Several schools have already declared themselves sanctuary campuses, including Portland State University, Reed College, and Columbia University.

To find out more about what motivates students to support the sanctuary campus movement, Campus Reform visited George Washington University, where many students participated in a pro-sanctuary walk-out several weeks ago.

The students interviewed were overwhelmingly in favor of GW becoming a sanctuary campus, calling it a “great thing,” and claiming that undocumented students “have a right to be going to this school” because “it’s really important for students to feel safe while they’re going to school.”

Since the GW students were asking their administration to ignore federal law, Campus Reform asked if they wanted the campus to be a “sanctuary” from other laws, as well.

“What about a sanctuary campus where student loan laws don’t affect you here?” Campus Reform asked.

“Oh, absolutely,” responded one student, while another agreed, saying, “Yes, that’d be cool.”

Students were also on board with making GW a sanctuary campus from underage drinking laws, because students “would feel safer” if they could drink and go to parties without breaking the law.

“I do agree with that one,” declared one student.

“Yeah, I think it [campus] should be a safe space for everybody,” replied another, explaining, “I don’t think anybody should be judged.”

Some students even went so far as to say that campus should be a safe space from final exams, given recent stress from the 2016 election.

“School’s been really stressful especially after the Trump election,” one student vented. “Like, it’s really hard to focus on your studies when there’s so much else going on.”

Throughout the day, Campus Reform spoke with just one student who refused to support the idea of ignoring federal laws on campus.

“I don’t believe in harboring criminals,” the student, who said he voted for Donald Trump, told Campus Reform. “I think, it’s against the law, we have to enforce federal law where it stands.”

Democrats Blame Jill ‘I Want A Recount’ Stein For Hillary’s Loss In Key States…

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein Discusses Recount Effort

Keep grasping at straws.

Via The Observer:

Every four years, one of America’s major political parties loses an election and goes through a mourning period. In 2008 (and at various times over the next eight years), some on the Right insisted President Barack Obama was not a legitimate president because they believed he was actually born in Kenya. In 2012, Republicans reacted in a more sensible way by conducting an autopsy of the election.

Now in 2016, Democrats are mourning in their own way. First, there was disbelief. Then came the claims of vote-rigging and calls for a recount. Peppered throughout all of this were assertions that Hillary Clinton actually won the election because she won the popular vote. This absurd notion required the suspension of common sense, including the fact that neither Clinton nor Donald Trump campaigned for the national popular vote and also that Clinton’s lead in the popular vote came entirely from populous liberal states like California and New York‚ hardly representative of the country at-large.

Many on the Left, including Clinton, have gotten behind Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s efforts to raise money for recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin; three traditionally blue states that voted for Trump by slim margins in 2016. It was always clear the recount wouldn’t turn over the election results and bestow the presidency upon Clinton, but the Left suddenly found their savior in Stein… Until last week, when some began bemoaning the fact that Stein got more votes in some swing states than Trump’s victory margin.

The Hill reporter Brooke Seipel wrote that in Michigan and Wisconsin, Trump defeated Clinton by fewer votes than Stein received. In Michigan, Stein got 51,463 votes, while Trump only beat Clinton by 10,704 votes. In Wisconsin, where vote totals have not been certified, Stein received 31,006 votes while Trump defeated Clinton by 22,177 votes.

Dave Wasserman of the Cook Political Report was the first to note the vote margins, and included Pennsylvania in his list, showing Stein received 49,678 votes in the Keystone State while Trump beat Clinton by 46,765 votes. Since his original tweets, more votes have been counted in the state, and Trump’s victory margin over Clinton was actually more than the number of votes Stein received.

Some critics are now blaming Stein for Clinton’s loss. This isn’t anything new. Many Republicans have also blamed Libertarian candidates for past losses.

Famed Military Academy, Virginia Military Institute, Giving Cadets Coloring Books For Stress…


Coloring books and therapy dogs won’t be much help to these cadet cupcakes when they come under enemy fire.

Via Washington Free Beacon:

A prestigious private military school is providing coloring books for cadets to deal with stress.

The Virginia Military Institute, the first state-sponsored military college in the country founded in 1839, offers a “stress busters” program to provide students with yoga classes to “unwind and relax.”

“Beginning in the 2016-2017 academic year, the Cadet Peer Educators (CPEs) will merge with cadet government under the Cadet Equity Association’s (CEA) Training and Education branch. As such, the formerly known CPEs are now members of CEA,” according to the school’s website. “All CEA trained educators are nationally certified through the BACCHUS™ network to assist with new cadet development, education/prevention programs, and individual peer support for a broad range of topics such as stress management, alcohol and tobacco, interpersonal relationships, bystander intervention, and suicide prevention. Trained peer educators are interviewed, selected, trained and advised by Cadet Government and the Center of Cadet Counseling.”

The school said “peer educators” will still provide “Stress Busters” programs for students, which includes an event that lets cadets color.

“Stress Busters is held on Reading Day of each semester,” the school said. “This is an opportunity for cadets to unwind and relax before studying for finals. This event often includes stress reduction activities such as yoga, therapy dogs, coloring book stations, card/game stations, and grab-and-go snacks to take with you on your way to study!”

Republican President-elect Donald Trump called Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-Wen over the weekend, and Secretary of State John Kerry isn’t happy, according to a Monday CNN report.

Kerry would have preferred that Trump let the Department of State know he planned to talk to the president of Taiwan, because his staff would have given Trump a run down on the top issues to consider, according to Kerry.

“We have not been contacted before any of these conversations. We have not been requested to provide talking points,” Kerry said at the Saban Forum in Washington.

Netanyahu Plans To Team Up With Trump To Rip Up Obama’s Nuke Deal With Iran…

Benjamin Netanyahu

Pretty please!

Via Daily Caller:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans on speaking with President-elect Donald Trump about the Iran deal after the inauguration, he told a conference audience Sunday.

Netanyahu publicly clashed with President Barack Obama over the Iranian nuclear deal, traveling to the U.S. to protest the deal before Congress in 2015. Trump called the deal a “disaster” on numerous occasions throughout the campaign, terming it “the worst deal ever negotiated.”

Trump’s pledge to withdraw the U.S. from the Iran deal will prove difficult, if he promises to follow through. Vice President-elect Mike Pence vowed that the deal will be “ripped up” upon consultation with U.S. allies. Department of State Spokesman Mark Toner, however, confirmed to reporters “the agreement is valid only as long as all parties uphold it.”

San Francisco International Airport Adds Therapy Pig To Greet Travelers…


This could get interesting.

Via SF Gate:

Believe it or not, adorable dogs aren’t for everyone. That’s one of the reasons why the San Francisco International Airport has added a new member to its four-legged “Wag Brigade” – a pig named LiLou.

SFO’s Wag Brigade allows SPCA animals certified by the Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) Program to greet and comfort hurried travelers as they arrive, depart, or languish through a layover. LiLou is the program’s first pig.

According to the SFSPCA, “At a minimum, AAT pets must be solicitous and fully comfortable with handling. In other words, pets must be interested in and eager to approach people and accept handling, regardless of the person’s age, gender, race, size, mobility equipment usage, and apparel.” LiLou nailed her training and is now dispatched to the airport once a month.

“I can see that she is happy showing off her tricks and getting her praise,” LiLou’s owner, Tatyana Danilova told USA Today. “It also brings positive emotions to me seeing that we can do something good for the community and bring more smiles in some unconventional way.”

Pentagon Reportedly Buried Study Exposing $125 Billion In Waste


So many agencies that need an overhaul.

Via Fox News:

Senior defense officials suppressed a study documenting $125 billion worth of administrative waste at the Pentagon out of fears that Congress would use its findings to cut the defense budget, the Washington Post reported late Monday.

The report, which was issued in January 2015 by the advisory Defense Business Board (DBB), called for a series of reforms that would have saved the department $125 billion over the next five years.

Among its other findings, the report showed that the Defense Department was paying just over 1 million contractors, civilian employees and uniformed personnel to fill back-office jobs. That number nearly matches the amount of active duty troops — 1.3 million, the lowest since 1940.

The Post reported that some Pentagon leaders feared the study’s findings would undermine their claims that years of budget sequestration had left the military short of money. In response, they imposed security restrictions on information used in the study and even pulled a summary report from a Pentagon website.

“They’re all complaining that they don’t have any money,” former DBB chairman Robert Stein told the Post. “We proposed a way to save a ton of money.”

Wife Of Missouri Governor-Elect Robbed At Gun Point


Via Fox News:

Three teenagers were in custody Monday night after the wife of Missouri Governor-elect Eric Greitens was robbed outside a St. Louis restaurant.

Greitens said in a statement that his wife Sheena was “safe — but shaken” following the incident, and expressed his gratitude to local police for their “swift and skilled response.”

St. Louis police said Sheena Greitens had left the restaurant in the city’s Central West End just after 6 p.m. and had gotten into her car. While she was looking at her phone, police said a suspect opened her door, pointed a gun at her and demanded her property.

Greitens gave the suspect her laptop and cell phone.

Officers who arrived at the scene discovered a second car had been broken into and another person’s phone had been taken. Authorities were able to track that victim’s phone to a suspect vehicle, which took off as officers attempted to stop it.

Can’t Check Validity Of Hillary Votes: Half Of Detroit May Be Ineligible For Recount

So check this out. The one area where there is a question, that could result in Hillary votes being questioned, can’t be recounted.

Via Detroit News:

One-third of precincts in Wayne County could be disqualified from an unprecedented statewide recount of presidential election results because of problems with ballots.

Michigan’s largest county voted overwhelmingly for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, but officials couldn’t reconcile vote totals for 610 of 1,680 precincts during a countywide canvass of vote results late last month.

Most of those are in heavily Democratic Detroit, where the number of ballots in precinct poll books did not match those of voting machine printout reports in 59 percent of precincts, 392 of 662.

According to state law, precincts whose poll books don’t match with ballots can’t be recounted. If that happens, original election results stand.

“It’s not good,” conceded Daniel Baxter, elections director for the city of Detroit.

Gay Los Angeles Couple Cancel Annual Holiday Party Because Donald Trump Won The Election…


The butt hurt continues.

Via LA Times:

Publicist James La Force and husband-writer Stephen Henderson have decided to forgo their annual holiday party known for its somewhat raucous atmosphere, due to the outcome of the presidential election.

In an interesting approach to this years’ election drama, the couple went ahead and printed their invitation pre-Trump victory with an illustration of Hillary in a Santa suit waving a flag with the caption “Make America Merry Again.”

Alas when she did not win the duo, who wrote, “So confident we were of her victory, we designed and printed the attached invitation before Nov. 8th,” were presumably in that “liberal bubble” the likes of Michael Moore have been pontificating about post-election.

Invitees, who have in the past included Peter Som and Michael Bastian, received these original invites along with an explanation of their reasons for canceling the holiday fete and their intentions to donate the party budget to Planned Parenthood, Housing Works, an organization close to Henderson’s heart and The Stonewall Foundation. Lest too much disappointment be garnered over an invitation to a fashionable haunt with a fashionable crowd, the pair offered that more parties were on the way, just “not in 2016.”

Law Professor: “It Is Time To Revisit Limits On Free Speech” Because Of Trump’s Election…



Via College Fix:

For nearly five decades, the Supreme Court has put strict limits on the government’s ability to prosecute people based on speech that is vile but not likely to cause direct harm.

A law professor at the University of Utah wants to “revisit” how 1969’s Brandenburg decision is applied, specifically because Donald Trump won the election.

Amos Guiora writes in the Salt Lake Tribune that two recent examples show why it’s dangerous to protect speech that doesn’t rise to Brandenburg‘s conditions (intended and “likely” to incite “imminent lawless action”): a Jewish professor getting a note at home that read “Gas Jews Die,” and another professor getting a postcard that read “Juden raus!” (Jews out).

VA Dentist Resigns After Possibly Infecting 600 Veterans With HIV, Hepatitis


Update to this story. Despite all of the claims of reform, the VA continues to be cesspool of incompetence, fraud and corruption.

Via Breitbart:

TOMAH, Wis., Dec. 3 (UPI) — An unidentified Department of Veterans Affairs dentist in Wisconsin resigned after possibly exposing hundreds of patients to HIV and hepatitis B and C.
Officials at Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center announced Friday the dentist, who placed veterans at risk by reusing his tools, resigned after initially moving to an administrative role, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

“Although we cannot prevent the dentist from resigning while administrative actions are pending, we are continuing reporting procedures to the state licensing board and the National Practitioner Data Bank,” acting medical director at the center Victoria Brahm said. “We will not stop doing all we can to ensure those responsible for this serious breach of patient trust are held accountable.”

The Tomah VA launched an investigation after a fill-in assistant reported the dentist had been using his own medical tools and would clean and reuse them, violating VA rules, according to CNN.

“It was purposeful that he was violating VA regulations,” Brahm said. “During all of the orientation, he used our equipment. He used it appropriately, so it was very purposeful from what we found in our investigation that he knew exactly what he was doing, and preferred to use his own equipment against procedure.”

The dentist worked at the facility and treated 592 patients who were notified they may have been exposed to the diseases.

“The most important part is the actual risk of infection is low here — it is out of an abundance of caution that we are doing this,” Tomah VA spokesman Matthew Gowan said.

The dentist was expected to appear in front of a review board as he faces administrative proceedings prior to his resignation.

Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and House Speaker Paul Ryan, both of Wisconsin, called for the dentist’s resignation after it was announced he would remain in an administrative position.

“This news is not just heartbreaking; it’s outrageous,” Ryan said. “How can our veterans be treated so carelessly and where is the accountability?”
