    This is just plain RACIST!

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/feb/20/black-panther-hailed-diversity-has-no-gay-characte/

    Black Panther’ packed with action, diversity…

    but…

    NO GAYS!

    How racist of them to complain about a film for black people by black people starring black people. Oh, wait, which particular pigmentation were the producers and directors and financial backers?

    Marvel Studios‘ “Black Panther” is being hailed as the most diverse superhero movie in Hollywood history, but it’s not diverse enough for some progressives who want to know: Where are all the gay characters?

    The latest comic-book-to-film adaptation checked off a number of identity boxes with its almost exclusively black cast and cohort of strong female characters. But filmmakers ditched a lesbian romance subplot from the original comic books, prompting an outcry from the LGBT community.

    Actress Florence Kasumba stoked the flames of outrage when she revealed that scenes of lesbian flirtation filmed during production were left on the cutting-room floor.

    LGBT advocates had every reason to hope that “Black Panther” would be the first Marvel Studios film to feature an openly gay character.

    I guess they forgot that blacks tend to be more anti-gay than whites. Supposedly, anyway.

    18-year-old Luis Valencia has been sentenced to six months in prison for smuggling in a Bengal tiger cub from Mexico.

    His attorney claims he had had a lapse in judgment and wanted the endangered tiger as a pet.

    Idiot’s cellphone data showed he was running an animal smuggling business and boasted about getting thousands for monkeys, jaguars and lions.

    Lions, tigers… what, no bears?

    Parkland Survivor: Media Using Tragedy To Push Gun Control

    Just like they ALWAYS do. That’s the primary reason Democrats have never done anything concrete to solve the problem – it’s one of their best political recruitment issues.

    http://dailycaller.com/2018/02/20/parkland-survivor-media-pushing-gun-control/

    Brandon Minoff, an 18-year-old survivor of the Florida school shooting, slammed the media for politicizing the aftermath of the deadly incident.

    Minoff, who was previously interviewed by CNN and MSNBC, told Fox News Tuesday that too many media outlets are focusing on gun control rather than the 17 people who died in last Wednesday’s shooting.

    “I wholeheartedly believe that the media is politicizing this tragedy,” Minoff said. “It seems that gun control laws is the major topic of conversation rather than focusing on the bigger issue of 17 innocent lives being taken at the hands of another human.”

    The survivor didn’t knock his fellow classmates for pushing gun control, noting that they are well-meaning and passionate about the issue, but questioned why the media wasn’t giving attention to students on the other side of the debate.

    https://www.theblaze.com/news/2018/02/20/dc-school-chancellor-broke-rules-he-created-so-his-child-could-be-enrolled-in-top-school
    A citywide lottery system gives families in the District of Columbia a chance to send their child to a school outside their neighborhood district when there’s capacity.

    Chancellor Antwan Wilson was given special treatment to allow his daughter to attend a top-performing school, just two months after he created rules that disallowed such behavior.

    ____

    That’s right…Wilson pulled strings to get his child into a better school. I can understand him doing that. His salary is only $280,000 so its not like he can afford a private school for his daughter.

    Jim Hoft at the Gateway Pundit‘s writing style is annoying and self-serving, but it does illustrate an important point.

    Gateway Pundit: CPAC Cancels CPAC Panel on Social Media Censorship – Blocks TGP’s Jim Hoft from Speaking, Slurs Trump Supporters

    Currently hundreds of conservative sites – especially pro-Trump conservative sites – are being targeted, blocked, shadow-banned, shut down, and discriminated against by Facebook, Twitter and Google. Pamela Geller organized a panel at CPAC to discuss this most important issue facing the conservative movement in America today. Pamela requested the panel BACK IN SEPTEMBER to make sure it would happen. CPAC tried to run the clock out on Pamela and refused to grant her request until Monday night. CPAC delayed their response so they wouldn’t have to put the panel in their official agenda. The panel was the hottest ticket at CPAC.

    CNN laughingly blames Trump for the leftwihg media’s guilt.

    CNN: Trump has enabled the ‘crisis actors’ conspiracy

    David Hogg, a student journalist who documented the shootings as they happened, was a “crisis actor” — someone who didn’t even attend Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He and several other “students” speaking out about the need for legislative action on guns were plants by gun control advocates — professional rabble-rousers aiming to take political advantage of a tragedy. “Both kids in the picture are not students here but actors that travel to various crisis when they happen,” an aide to state Rep. Shawn Harrison told the Tampa Bay Times’ Alex Leary on Tuesday. (The aide was later fired.) Or the students were plants of the FBI, because Hogg’s father is a retired FBI agent.

    Is this the same David Hogg?

    Sometimes those moments end in medals, but obviously the vast majority don’t make it to the podium. And some of the athletes who finish nowhere near the gold have the most fascinating stories. And these unbelievable Olympians have done what they’ve done without the left-leaning politics that seem to have permeated these games.

    Or have they? Isn’t the fact they’re there a demonstration of that very thing?

    MS-13 spreads to 22 states, fed by 300,000 illegals, DACA recipients, tied to 207 murders

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/ms-13-spreads-to-22-states-fed-by-300000-illegals-daca-recipients-tied-to-207-murders/article/2649596

    The vicious MS-13 gang, stifled under former President George W. Bush, exploded during the Obama era fueled by 300,000 illegals, including those given amnesty under the DACA program, and has now been linked to crimes in 22 states, according to a new report.

    Since 2012, 207 murders have been tied to the gang called “Mara Salvatrucha,” and there are over 500 cases nationwide of MS-13 members being charged in major crimes, according to the report from the Center for Immigration Studies.

    Remember how the left pilloried Trump for talking about criminality among SOME illegal immigrants?

    And there’s a “sanctuary” tie in as well:

    But it can sometimes be hard to deport the illegals involved because about half of the crimes detailed in the report occurred in so-called “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    President Trump has pledged to crack down on the gang and deport those in the United States illegally, and report author Jessica M. Vaughan suggested that it can’t happen soon enough.

    At least the moonbats who vote for politicians who implement “sanctuary” policies are putting themselves at the most risk.

    Detailing how the gang rebuilt itself under Obama’s open-border immigration policies, she said, “this resurgence represents a very serious threat to public safety in communities where MS-13 has rebuilt itself. The resurgence is directly connected to the illegal arrival and resettlement of more than 300,000 Central American youths and families that has continued unabated for six years, and to a de-prioritization of immigration enforcement in the interior of the country that occurred at the same time.”

    The research she supervised at the immigration think tank found that MS-13 concentrations were in areas where so-called “unaccompanied alien children” were put under Obama, including Virginia, California, Maryland and New York. They included those participating in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals who Democrats in Congress are fighting for.

    She cited an example of a Maryland DACA recipient charged with gang activity who urged pals in El Salvador to take advantage of Obama’s policies:

    One MS-13 clique leader in Frederick, Md., who had received a DACA work permit and was employed as a custodian at a middle school in Frederick, Md., and who was recently incarcerated for various gang-related crimes, reportedly was told by gang leaders in El Salvador to take advantage of the lenient policies on UACs to bring in new recruits, knowing that they would be allowed to resettle in the area with few questions asked. Several of these unaccompanied minors now have been arrested and incarcerated for various crimes, including a vicious random attack on a sheriff’s deputy in 2015.

    I actually had ice on my windshield and the windshield of the van I use at the VA when I volunteer (yesterday morning).

    Almost unseen in San Diego. Before returning from Philadelphia years ago I picked up a window ice scraper… which I’ve never used since… until yesterday. In Philadelphia there was a blizzard – or at least 4 feet of snow in one single storm, which they told me was unusual for that particular city, not the region – and I needed the scraper while there and then remembered I didn’t have one and thought it might come in handy some day. Well it finally did.

What we found out is that in April and May, it appeared that there were lots of strange things happening, attacking Hillary Clinton.”
