HERO: Meet the Man Who Tackled the Waffle House Shooter

"After suffering a few scrapes on his elbow and being discharged from the hospital, Shaw Jr attended church with his mother." Timothy Meads
Just think; in Tennessee before the civil rights movement, the hero by law would not have even been allowed into this restaurant as a customer. I'm so glad both whites and blacks have now been freed from that millstone, and know this: we are a better nation because of young men like James Shaw. The Tunnel Dweller

Timothy Meads

"Earlier today, a madman with a gun opened fire on a Waffle House in Antioch, Tennessee. But one hero ran towards the bullets instead of away from them. Police say James Shaw Jr.’s actions saved many lives."

Waffle House Hero Is Healing Through Faith: ‘It Just Made Sense For Me To Go To Church  . . . "Shaw Jr. said he needed a sense of community and love to heal, which lead him to church where he received the loving support of his family and friends.

“ 'I just went to church just so I could begin kind of like the healing process and kind of persevere through this situation,” he said. “And I just wanted to be around, you know, some love. My fraternal brothers came to support me. My family was there to support me. The church was there to support me.”

Robert Mueller, Dry hole: "An unsuccessful venture, especially an exploratory oil well that produces no oil."

Dry hole
Rich Terrell
Mueller's harassment of Hannity may be criminal  . . . "Mueller is a real fascist who uses the power of the state to attack individuals. He lead the anthrax attack investigation that targeted the wrong man, and harassed him so viciously that taxpayers had to pay the victim of Mueller's abuse $5.8 million.
"President George Walker Bush should have fired him. Instead, he let this bonehead keep his job.
"That taught Mueller nothing.
"A criminal investigation of the Mule might." . . .

President Trump: guilty until proven innocent  "Byron York describes the new standard for evaluating wild allegations against President Trump: Have they been disproved?:"  Sure worked for Harry Reid, didn't it?

VDH: Revolution and Worse to Come  . . . "Robert Mueller and his “dream team” were long ago supposed to have discovered proof of Trump’s collusion with Russia. A year later, they have found nothing much to do with this mandate. Then the alternative scent was obstruction of justice. Then the chase took another detour to follow some sort of fraud or racketeering. Now the FBI is reduced to raiding Trump’s lawyer in an effort to root out the real story on Stormy Daniels. One wonders what might have happened had Michael Cohen panicked and destroyed 30,000 emails before Mueller seized his computers. No matter, Mueller’s legal army presses on, even as it leaves its own wounded on the battlefield, as resignations, reassignments, and retirements for improper conduct decimate the Obama-era FBI and DOJ hierarchies." . . .

Mueller Found a Very Dishonest Way to Shroud His Investigation in Secrecy

Our PC Culture Just Got Even More Ridiculous

Bernard Goldberg

Our PC Culture Just Got Even More Ridiculous

"Every now and then a news item pops up that is so ridiculous that you figure it's just got to be fake news, somebody's idea of a joke. You check the calendar to make sure it's not April Fools' Day. And when you realize it isn't, you come to understand that in our hypersensitive culture, a news story can be factual, accurate and preposterous all at the same time. 

"Which brings us to the TV play-by-play man for the Oklahoma City Thunder, a team in the National Basketball Association. The announcer, Brian Davis, was calling a game in which the team's star player, Russell Westbrook, was having another spectacular game. He had just made a pass setting up a basket -- one of a stunning 19 assists he made in the game -- when Davis put an exclamation point on the Westbrook pass, saying Westbrook was playing "out of his cotton-pickin' mind." 

"Davis is white and Westbrook is black, in case you haven't figured that out. And in case you have absolutely no knowledge of history, slaves once upon a time picked cotton in the South. 

"So reparations for the ugly past had to be paid, more than 150 years after slavery ended. How? By taking what passes for the moral high ground. The Thunder suspended Davis for one game. No fooling. 

"Never mind that cotton pickin' is a term used in the South by a lot of old white guys and old black guys as a genteel replacement for a harsher words, like damn. 
. . . "The term has ugly racial connotations mainly for those who look in all sorts of places for supposed ugly racial connotations." 

Never Forget Maxine Waters Embraced the Thug Who Slammed Concrete on Reginald Denny’s Head

Waters did not learn a thing from the experience. She went on to describe the LA Race Riots as, quote, “a rebellion, and in ways understandable.” Including, apparently, the part about smashing people’s brains in for being the wrong color. Yep, that’s the Democratic Party’s new expert on race relations.

Independent Sentinel  "NEVER FORGET that Maxine Waters embraced Damien Williams, the infamous thug who hurled a chunk of concrete at truck driver 

"Reginald Denny and performed a victory dance over this innocent man’s battered body. Maxine Waters even visited Damien Williams’ mother to offer her support.
Williams was sent to prison on a single felony charge of mayhem, but when his accomplices got off, Waters joined in the celebration.
"Damien Williams was released a few years later and went on to murder somebody else. Also, no surprise, he was a member of the Crips." . . .

She’s the Democrat Party’s new “rock star”. She’s Auntie Maxine, the moral authority of the Party. This is the woman who doesn’t even live in the hellhole she’s been responsible for over the past three decades. She lives in a nearby mansion.

Our revered free press

Conrad Black: America is being mocked by the shallow bias of its free press  
Anti-Trump mainstream media in the U.S., joined by their fatuously chirping Canadian counterparts, are failing the general public
. . . "But we will get the politicians we deserve. When will we get media we deserve? This is a burning question for the whole West. Until it is answered, a free press is undervalued and accordingly vulnerable. The recently exposed abuses of Facebook and other tech giants and the U.S. president’s successful use of Twitter are symptoms of the problem."

America is being mocked by the shallow bias of its free press

. . . "Desperately unoriginal and mouthy occupants of late-night purported comedy — Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Chelsea Handler — imagine that shouting rehashed denigrations of the president and his family are amusing. It is a bore; it isn’t working, and history moves on." . . .

Trump taunts Democrats over Russia collusion lawsuit

Tony Branco
NY Post  . . . “ 'We will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the FBI, the Debbie Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails,” he posted Friday night.
"Deputy Attorney General Robert Rosenstein, who is overseeing Mueller, told Trump last week that the president is not — at this point — a target in the investigation."

Wisdom and the Smartest People Ever

"Seek wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.  Find wisdom.  Though it cost all you have, get understanding."
"Does not wisdom call out?"
"Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her." From the Book of Proverbs

David Prentice  . . . "Now, it's hard not to notice that the pinnacle of the left being smarter than everyone came to us with one Barack Obama, with his incredibly ΓΌber-intelligent, superior group of advisers and administration.
"Nobody was ever smarter.  Ever.
"Except they really weren't.  For smart people, they actually did some of the dumbest things ever in public life.  The tragedy of so many believing they were the smartest people ever may haunt us for years.
. . . 
"The eight years of Barack Obama were the West at its low point.  My take: I never thought our culture could turn so wrong so fast.  Things happened in our government and culture during those eight years we never deemed possible even ten years ago.  Destructive trends, "destructive ideas, destructive social movements.  All at their peak through the Obama years:' " . . .  (Emphases added, TD)
*The worst race relations since the 1960s.  Race-baiting, straight from the top.*The worst foreign policy ever.  Iran.  Cuba.  ISIS.  Help our enemies.  Betray our friends.  Bolster Islamists; destroy American confidence and its military.*The most corrupt administration ever.  By far.  We're just now seeing how bad.*A turn in leftist immigration policy – its clear intent to replace the current electorate with a malleable, ignorant new electorate willing to believe the leftist siren songs so the left can have unchallenged power.*The worst of pay to play.  Leftists at the trough of government sucked deep.  The Clinton Foundation sucking the deepest.  Follow the money if you dare.*The moral preening of Hollywood and the media. . . .

I left my body waste in San Francisco

This was from 2009, so how has the city changed since then?
For a first world city, San Francisco is dirty. No, filthy. No, disgusting. Whenever I travel outside of San Francisco, I'm amazed at what a disastrous anomaly it is. Sidewalks are routinely covered in broken glass, trash, old food, and human excrement....... Aging hippies in the Haight argue about marijuana legalization and anti-war referendums when men and women are dying – visibly dying – on the streets of the Tenderloin. It's as if all parties don't occupy the same city...
 Clean up San Francisco’s streets, tourist industry pleads . . . "People injecting themselves with drugs in broad daylight, their dirty needles and other garbage strewn on the sidewalks. Tent camps. Human feces. The threatening behavior of some people who appear either mentally ill or high. Petty theft. 

“ 'The streets are filthy. There’s trash everywhere. It’s disgusting,” D’Alessandro said, adding he’s traveled the world, and San Francisco stands out for the wrong reasons. “I’ve never seen any other city like this — the homelessness, dirty streets, drug use on the streets, smash-and-grabs. 

“ 'How can it be?” he continued. 

“ 'How can it have gotten to this point?” Remember, this is the man whose job is to glorify San Francisco, which tells you something about how far the city has sunk." . . . 

Save The Earth: Chop Down Redwoods, Use Plastic Bags, And Eat GMOs

Daily Caller  "It’s Earth Day again, so prepare to be bombarded with platitudes from environmental activists droning at rallies and on TV — all while stuffing their faces with organic kale.

"But it’s 2018, so environmentalists may also complain how Earth Day is “too white” or a rehashing of apocalyptic predictions of ecological decay making the rounds for decades.

"What you probably won’t hear about are some of the actual great environmental threats Americans face or the unintended consequences of policies meant to go “green.” In light of this, The Daily Caller News Foundation put together a short list of things Americans aren’t likely to hear from most of the media on Earth Day." . . .  Full article

"At this point it’s hard to see how we will ever be rid of this loathsome sore loser short of locking her up . . ."


 Apr 20MoreYou couldn’t beat 1.) a dope-smoking block party organizer, 2.) a dandruff ridden old Commie from Vermont, or 3.) a reality TV host. It’s not “they” who stopped you, Honey Bunny, it’s YOU!

This was a beautiful home we wanted badly to have . . .

. . . but they didn't want me to have it!

. . . "Of course it doesn’t help that Hillary doesn’t want to leave the spotlight. As the AP noted, “she launched a political organization designed to encourage Trump ‘resistance’ groups” and still makes appearances. She still won’t accept responsibility for losing the election and instead places blame everywhere else.
" 'But it still shocks me that the GOP has decided to take this route considering the Democrats and her former aides don’t want much to do with her. Hillary received a lot of backlash last month when she visited India and implied that us in flyover country hate black people and us women who didn’t vote for her did so because the men in our lives told us not to.
"Some of that backlash came from the Democrats and those around her. An interviewer asked Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) when Hillary would finally “ride off into the sunset” and the incumbent answered, “[N]ot soon enough.” Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said that that’s not the way “you should talk about any voter.' ” . . .

Hillary’s Famous “Deplorables” Line Wasn’t a Slip of the Tongue
"How can anyone forget this? Hillary: Half of Trump Supporters Belong in a “Basket of Deplorables”

. . . "The moment was framed as a gaffe, something Hillary accidentally said out loud when she thought the only people listening were her supporters. A new book disputes this account, however.
"Phillip Wegmann reports at the Washington Examiner: . . ."
The ugly, elitist backstory behind Hillary Clinton’s ‘basket of deplorables’

Trump administration dumps another pro-Palestinian shibboleth*

*Shibboleth:  . . . "One-hit wonders prove particularly distinctive. Much the same is true of alumni of a particular school, veterans of military service, and other groups. Discussing such memories is a common way of bondingIn-jokes can be a similar type of shared-experience shibboleth." . . .

Israel Rising

Thomas Lifson  "So far, there has been little reaction because the change came so quietly. But on Friday, the US State Department issued an important document that refused to conform to the previously mandatory language that paid lip service to political correctness’s Palestinian Division. The Times of Israel reports:
The US State Department released its annual report on human rights violations around the world on Friday, and there was at least one discernible difference from past reports: It no longer refers to the West Bank as “occupied.”
Whereas previous iterations of the Country Reports on Human Rights Practices had a section on “Israel and the Occupied Territories,” this year’s document refers instead to “Israel, Golan Heights, West Bank and Gaza.”
. . .
"War and conquest is how pretty much every nation established itself as sovereign over whatever territory it rules. But for reasons as old as the World’s Oldest Hate, Israel is held to a different standard. Except that now, the Trump administration is signaling that it no longer will follow the Israel-only rules, at least in choice of labels. Exactly as it is doing with another phony-baloney Israel-only shibboleth: that one can be born in one country, and yet be a refugee from another country
"I want all those people who think Trump is Hitler to explain how this could possibly happen  with Hitler in charge."
No Democrat would do this, certainly not Obama. Yet why do so many Jews vote Democrat?

Democratic lawsuit will cost them in November

More importantly, the lawsuit will show Americans just who the Democrats are. The party will regret this lawsuit by November, if not by the end of the day. Americans are tired of Hillary, Jim Shady Comey, CNN, and the constant attacks on President Trump.

Don Surber  "Democrats suffered their biggest presidential loss in 28 years on November 8, 2016, as people in 30 states rejected them and the woman they nominated.

"And for the first time since 1860, there was no peaceful transition of power.

"Barack Obama set President Trump up with that Fake Russian Dossier that the Democratic Party purchased. Replete with tall tales of pissing prostitutes, Democrats used this to stick a special counsel on Trump.

"For more than a year, Democrats have used their operatives embedded in government to thwart the Trump administration. They slowed the confirmation process to a crawl.

"Nothing has worked. The economy roars. North Korea cringes in fear. Chairman Xi -- who made Obama use the servants entrance -- dined with the Trumps in the Forbidden Palace, the first foreign dignitaries to do so.

"Facing the increasing prospect of being a rare opposition party that loses seats in the midterm, Democrats decided to sue to overturn the 2016 election.

" 'The Democratic Party on Friday sued President Donald Trump's presidential campaign, the Russian government and the Wikileaks group, claiming a broad conspiracy to help Trump win the 2016 election," CNBC reported.

"Oh, let the litigation begin.

"Discovery will bring joy.

"All the news CNN and others kept to themselves will become public." . . .
