Remember Clock Boy?

Jog your memory all the way back to 2015. Ahmed Mohamed, aka “Clock Boy,” was the Muslim kid who supposedly made his own homemade alarm clock and brought it to school. One of his teachers thought it to be a bomb and eventually called the police.

Libs cried out in defense of this kid, saying his “civil rights” were violated, that he was “discriminated against” because of his ethnicity and/or religion, and so on.

Ahmed’s family filed a lawsuit in 2016, and now it’s been revealed that a judge has thrown out their entire case.

Daily Mail:

The judge wrote: ‘Plaintiff does not allege any facts from which this court can reasonably infer that any IISD employee intentionally discriminated against Ahmed Mohamed based on his race or religion.’

Further, he notes that the suit failed to identify any policy, custom, or practice of the City that was allegedly the moving force behind any violation of Ahmed’s Fifth Amendment rights.

When the lawsuit was first filed in 2016, the district hit back at the Mohamed family’s allegations saying Ahmed deliberately disobeyed his teacher by activating the clock despite her warning.

I forgot about Ahmed until I saw this story. Brings back many memories of poking fun at him—as well as the liberals who portrayed him as some sort of Einstein—when I used to be on Twitter.

This was priceless too:

The Public Doesn’t Care Much About James Comey’s Firing

As you heard, President Trump let James Comey go this past Tuesday. He is the first president to fire the FBI Director since, interestingly, Bill Clinton dismissed William Sessions in 1993.

Democraps and their buddies in the mainstream media have been trying their utmost to drum up a major controversy. But the public is just not buying it.

Axios (data via SocialFlow):

I posted Trump’s letter to Comey shortly after the firing, but that’s it. I reacted neither in jubilation nor in disgust over what happened. I had a rather neutral reaction and therefore didn’t feel the need to write anything further or post anything on social media.

Most Americans seem to feel the same way.

New Orleans: First of Three Confederate Statues Comes Down

Although we knew it was coming, it’s still tragic to read. Workers removed Jeff Davis’ statue in New Orleans early this morning. Also scheduled for removal are the city’s statues of Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard.

I strongly condemn this development. It’s the whitewashing of history, plain and simple. Note that the removal of the statues isn’t based on the misguided idea that “these men were traitors and therefore do not deserve to be honored,” but on the equally misguided idea that they represent “racism, slavery, and white supremacy.”

You could, using the same logic, make the argument that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Andrew Jackson also represent “racism, slavery, and white supremacy.” Yet sane Americans understand there’s so much more to them than the fact that they owned slaves.

Insane Americans, like leftist activist Malcolm Suber, make that argument and support the suppression of Founding Father history. New York Times:

On Thursday, Mr. Suber chuckled mischievously and said he would be delighted to see the statue of Washington over by the New Orleans Public Library come down, too.

“He was a slave master,” he said. “Right?”

A dangerous precedent has been set. Why stop at Davis and Lee when Washington and Jefferson embody “white supremacy” too? That’s the mentality of Suber and his ilk. They are by no means a majority, but any student of history knows that change often stems from a very vocal minority.

Davis, Lee, and Beauregard are as American as apple pie, whether you like it or not. They’re three-dimensional historical figures. Mayor Mitch Landrieu and leftist activists erroneously see them as two-dimensional historical figures. And they’re erasing their history in the name of progressivism. Whose monument will be next?

Trump Boots Comey

President Trump has given James Comey the boot. Trump fired him per the recommendation of Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein.

Here is a transcript of Trump’s letter to Comey:

Dear Director Comey:

I have received the attached letters from the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General of the United States recommending your dismissal as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have accepted their recommendation and you are hereby terminated and removed from office, effective immediately.

While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.

It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission.

I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

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.
