Reassuring Words From the President

I’ll be honest, I was concerned with the U.S.’ airstrike in Syria last week. I thought Trump had caved in to what Pat Buchanan calls “the War Party” and that we were surely on the road to greater conflict.

Ultimately I gave our president the benefit of the doubt. And I’m glad I did. New York Post:

Amid complaints that his aides are saying different things about Syria and his policy is confusing, President Trump emphatically cleared the air.

“We’re not going into Syria,” he told me yesterday in an exclusive interview. “Our policy is the same — it hasn’t changed. We’re not going into Syria.”

Barbra Streisand as a Representation of the Liberal Mindset

Barbra Streisand tweeted the following Saturday evening:

The individual with a liberal mindset blames their own problems on outside forces. It is not Barbra Streisand who is responsible for her own unhealthy breakfast routine, but Donald Trump. This is a victim mentality that allows one to take little to no responsibility for their actions. Then when something bad happens—e.g., weight gain—it’s not really their fault.

Acknowledging that you’re 100% responsible for your mistakes and shortcomings is a liberating feeling. Refuse to do so, and you’ll remain a slave to your bad habits.

BUSTED: The White Trump-Supporting Nazi Behind Jewish Bomb Threats in St. Louis

Juan Thompson, ladies and gents:

Via the Daily Caller:

Juan Thompson, 31, was arrested in St. Louis by the FBI for making at least eight bomb threats and the cyberstalking of an ex-girlfriend. Thompson was a former reporter for The Intercept, and was fired after it was discovered that he made up sources and stories, including one about Charleston shooter Dylann Roof.

The criminal complaint states that threats made to the Jewish establishments across the country by Thompson were under his name and the name of his ex-girlfriend, and occurred after the relationship ended. The threats were made by both email and phone calls.

Quick Reaction to Jeff Sessions Controversy

I’m pressed for time today, so I can only provide a brief reaction to the Jeff Sessions controversy.

The charge is that he did not disclose two meetings with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak during his Senate confirmation hearing, in which Sessions faced two questions regarding Russian contact. Senator Patrick Leahy asked Sessions if he had been in contact “with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election.” Sessions responded with a no.

The other question came from Senator Al Franken, who asked, “If there was any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what would you do?” To which Sessions replied, “I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.”

Sessions seemed to understand Franken’s question as concerning contact in his role as a Trump surrogate. We don’t know what role Sessions had met Kislyak in, for Sessions was also a Senator and a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee who, according to his spokesperson, met with numerous foreign ambassadors.

On top of all this, someone in D.C. had to have leaked information to the Washington Post regarding Sessions’ two meetings, for they were not hitherto known about. And, go figure, the Post published their report approximately 24 hours after President Trump’s well-received Congressional address.

There is simply no evidence of Sessions colluding with the Russians on campaign matters. Therefore, there is also no evidence that Sessions “lied under oath.” This smells like nothing short of a politically motivated witch-hunt.

Breaking: Statue of Liberty Defaced

Someone unfurled this banner on the Statue of Liberty’s observation deck:

statueofliberty

The Statue of Liberty used to represent friendship between the U.S. and France as well as freedom and liberty.

Now it somehow means that we need to open our borders to every “refugee” (read: economic migrant) and emigrant that wants a slice of the American pie, so to speak. And if we don’t, it’s “un-American.”

Sad!
