HILARIOUS: What Kathy Griffin REALLY Did With Her Trump Stunt

The Federalist Papers  Robert Gehl reports that self-described “comic” Kathy Griffin has been fired by CNN.
Griffin came under fire for posing for a gruesome photo showing her holding the severed head of President Donald Trump.
It enraged the public, none other than Trump himself; terrified his son and even infuriated the Satanists. The Secret Service also decided to may Ms. Griffin a visit.
At first, CNN reacted by calling the photo “disgusting and offensive,” saying they were “evaluating our New Year’s Eve coverage.”
But only after the global firestorm did CNN announce they were completely cutting ties with Griffin, namely her appearance on their New Year’s Eve program.

Forget Russian Collusion. We Are Russia.

Roger L. Simon  "What's a citizen to do when he or she no longer trusts the intelligence agencies of his or her country?
"That's the terrifying situation evolving from the leaks and counter-leaks surrounding the various investigations grouped under the rubric "Russia" -- though it appears to have less and less to do with Russia and more and more to do with us. We are Russia.
"Rowan Scarborough reported in the Washington Times Monday:
What caused the Barack Obama administration to begin investigating the Donald Trump campaign last summer has come into clearer focus following a string of congressional hearings on Russian interference in the presidential election.
It was then-CIA director John O. Brennan, a close confidant of Mr. Obama’s, who provided the information — what he termed the “basis” — for the FBI to start the counterintelligence investigation last summer. Mr. Brennan served on the former president’s 2008 presidential campaign and in his White House.
Mr. Brennan told the House Intelligence Committee on May 23 that the intelligence community was picking up tidbits on Trump associates making contacts with Russians. Mr. Brennan did not name either the Russians or the Trump people. He indicated he did not know what was said. 

Kathy Griffin should ask for royalties every time her picture shows up at anti-Trump rallies

She may apologize, but her picture with the Trump head cannot be unseen.

Kathy Griffin apologies for a joke that didn’t work  
Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrumpKathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!
. . . "There is always the possibility that she will become some sort of martyr and hero to the most deranged among the TDS Cult. Maybe a one woman show off-Broadway?

"But for the rest of the nation, the sane seventy percent, Griffin has created an image that can’t be unseen, and that will serve as an icon of Trump Derangement Syndrome, visually embracing the methods of the Taliban, specifically calling to mind the video decapitation of Daniel Pearl. That sort of image operates on different parts of the brain than words.
"While she failed to be funny, Kathy Griffin still managed to create an immortal image, generating a meme – that on a fantasy level (for now) Trump haters in some ways resemble Islamists in their affinity for violence -- that will love on, perhaps even becoming the symbol of the extreme Trump hatred of our current era."
Kathy Griffin's bloody head of Trump  
"Lefties have engaged in hate-mongering for decades, but since the Bush II years, they have made it plain they are not thinking in terms of metaphors but rather of actually killing people they disagree with politically. Conservative writer Kurt Schlichter writes that the Left acts surprised or offended when the Right hates them back. They are intentionally pushing America to civil unrest. It’s entirely their fault."
Mika Censors Kathy Griffin News: “We’re not Talking about It. Too Gross. Not Worth Doing”  "If, say, Greg Gutfield had held up a realistic-looking severed head of the previous president, do you think Morning Joe would have refused to cover the story? But on today’s Morning Joe, when a panelist made reference to “the Kathy Griffin news,” Mika Brzezinski put her foot down:
“ 'We’re not talking about it. I’m sorry, it’s too gross. It’s just not worth doing.” . . .
Bloody awful: Liberals should swiftly condemn Kathy Griffin's disgusting anti-Trump photo shoot  "When Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot by a deranged man in 2011, conversation quickly turned to the blind hostility nurtured by some in talk radio, and specifically to a Sarah Palin-led political action committee graphic in which key congressional districts were in metaphoric crosshairs."

Trump Derangement Syndrome Takes a Grisly Turn  "We all know this, but it needs to be said. If someone had done anything like this to attack President Obama during the Obama years, the enraged outcries would have reverberated around the world and the swooning media would have pointed to a "climate of hate," indicting everyone on the right for the outrage. Of course, nothing like this ever happened during the Obama years because people on the Right aren't as bat-guano insane as people on the Left.
"Enter alleged "comedienne" Kathy Griffin."

. . . "But it's only the latest of many unhinged celebrity expressions of Trump Derangement Syndrome:
"The man has been in office for less than five months. Give them time -- eventually they'll get around to producing an assassination film like they did for President Bush."

Study finds ABC, CBS, NBC barely cover Venezuela's left-wing catastrophe, avoid word 'socialism'

Lifezette  "Out of approximately 50,000 total evening news stories on ABC, CBS and NBC combined in the last four years, just 25 have covered the ongoing crisis in socialist Venezuela, according to a Media Research Center study published Tuesday.

"After Venezuela’s former socialist president, Hugo Chávez, passed away in March 2013, the country has spiraled into economic disaster and civil chaos. So far in 2017, more than 50 Venezuelans have been killed during protests against current Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and his socialist policies. Many Venezuelans are starving due to shortages of food and other essentials. The country’s inflation rate is set to surpass 700 percent and 25 percent of Venezuelans will be unemployed.
“ 'The few times they have managed to cover the widespread poverty, starvation, and government oppression … they somehow find ways to do that without [saying] the word ‘socialism.'”
“ 'Yet the Big Three evening newscasts have tried to pretend this crisis does not exist, offering virtually no coverage as the situation has deteriorated over the past four years,” MRC Research Analyst Mike Ciandella wrote [1].
“ 'The networks have also been reluctant to attach the ‘socialist’ label to Venezuela’s government, and have utterly failed to criticize liberal politicians and celebrities who have praised the Chávez and Maduro regimes,” Ciandella added." . . .

Now That The Secret Service Is Investigating, Kathy Griffin Is Suddenly Sorry…

Weasel Zippers  "As we just reported, the Secret Service is now investigating Kathy Griffin for her beading picture of
"Her first response to the furor was defiance and justifying her actions, that she had a right to mock Trump."

Soon to appear on "Courageous Women of Hollywood" or something.

Kathy Griffin Beheads President Trump In Photoshoot

Weasel Zippers  First released by TMZ which contained this tweet
Has-been Kathy Griffin, desperate for a headline, plays on the whiny, childish mentality of Trump-haters to gain notoriety.
If anyone had done this to Obama, the media would've roasted the has-been and made them into a pariah that wished she never-was.

"UPDATE: Griffin Posts Video Online Of Decapitation…"

Maybe The View?
Care to start a pool as to which night-time TV show has her as a guest (who will be roundly applauded, I might add)? TD

Ward Bond (Not the late actor, obviously), quoting a column by Professor Mike Adams
. . . "Let’s get something straight right now. You have no right to be unoffended. You have a right to be offended with regularity. It is the price you pay for living in a free society. If you don’t understand that you are confused and dangerously so. In part, I blame your high school teachers for failing to teach you basic civics before you got your diploma. Most of you went to the public high schools, which are a disaster. Don’t tell me that offended you. I went to a public high school.

"Of course, your high school might not be the problem. It is entirely possible that the main reason why so many of you are confused about free speech is that piece of paper hanging on the wall right over there. Please turn your attention to that ridiculous document that is framed and hanging by the door. In fact, take a few minutes to read it before you leave class today. It is our campus speech code. It specifically says that there is a requirement that everyone must only engage in discourse that is “respectful.” That assertion is as ludicrous as it is illegal. I plan to have that thing ripped down from every classroom on campus before I retire." . . .

Dear Mrs. Clinton: Please Concede the Election, Now

Political Cartoons by Steve Kelley

Christopher Chantrill  "Last week Hillary Clinton reprised her notorious Wellesley graduation speech with another graceless graduation day speech at her alma mater. In her latest effort, the losing candidate in the 2016 presidential election continued her Sore Loser narrative that began the day after the November 8 election, and launched damp squib after damp squib at the president.
"Honestly, I don’t know what Hillary Clinton thinks she is doing with all this “resistance” talk, and the foolish idea, told to New York magazine, that she “beat both of them,” Sanders and Trump.
"I suppose that what with all their postmodern prattle that Democrats these days don’t study political science, don’t study history and don’t study Germans like Clausewitz. All they do, one supposes, is go to seminars on Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, courtesy of the Catholic Church, and spend their lives “organizing΅ and “resisting.”
. . . 
"In my view, the measure of a man is not what he believes at the end of the rainbow of justice, but what he is willing to concede to the other side in the spirit of good will, right now.
"Obviously, there is not much good will in a political party that calls out the Other as racist sexist deplorables.
"The problem is that two can play at that game and it merely leads to politics by other means.
"And the Hillary Clintons and the media are no better than the generals that liberals tell us are always fighting the last war."

Will This Be The Week That Was for the Fox News Channel?

Peter Barry Chowka  "The week ahead promises to be a critical one for the future of the wounded and limping Fox News Channel (FNC). Knocked off its perch in early May as the longstanding number one cable television news outlet, FNC is now contending with an uncertain future. Declining ratings, internal conflicts and poor programming decisions, and new controversies have helped to energize a determined outside viral de facto “resist Fox News” campaign with the purpose of taking the channel down."
. . . 

. . . "Before the Memorial Day holiday weekend began, at least seven companies had abandoned advertising on Hannity’s nightly show. While far fewer than the fifty or so sponsors that had bolted from The O’Reilly Factor last April, the possibility nonetheless exists that the boycott effort targeting Hannity could gain momentum in the days ahead and conceivably threaten the future of the program.
"With the rest of FNC’s prime time shows faltering – The Story with Martha McCallum at 7 PM, Tucker Carlson at 8, and The Five at 9 (all times Eastern) –Hannity at 10 PM is still often the ratings leader on the beleaguered channel. The loss of Sean Hannity’s program, further unhinging FNC’s prime time schedule, could spell ratings doom for FNC." . . .
. . . "I asked Crokin if she thinks that Sean Hannity will keep his Fox News show. “There are truly powerful and evil forces that are trying to get Sean Hannity fired,” Crokin replied. “They will try their best to get him canned. However, if that happens, it will only bring more awareness to the Seth Rich murder case and how the media is not only complicit but also, in some cases, accomplices in this massive cover up. This is a case where the cover up is way bigger than the crime. This is Watergate on steroids!”

Washington Post Reporter Called A White Nationalist

College Students Cry ‘Racism!’ After A Restaurant Questioned Their IDs
Chicks on the Right
Professor Mike Adams  "Washington Post reporter Cleve Wootson was recently given the responsibility of reporting on a lawsuit in which I am involved. The story he was assigned to write is actually quite simple. A California university unconstitutionally denied a student group’s request for funding to host a conservative speaker (me) on their campus. The decision to deny funding was a blatant case of viewpoint discrimination that is supported by a mountain of evidence. Thus, Wootson had an easy story to write if he simply stuck to the facts. Instead, his article wound up being a masterpiece of bad journalism.

"Wootson begins his article with an image of campus violence that is totally unrelated to the group that invited me to speak. He then provides a list of “white nationalists” who have recently spoken on other campuses. He continues his journalistic hit piece by characterizing Charles Murray as a person who "has been called a white nationalist" – because, of course, anonymous accusations define the man. Only after sufficiently poisoning the well does Wootson get around to mentioning the point of the article.

Image result for Cleve Wootson political photos
"It’s hard to miss what Wootson is doing here. He wants to link the plaintiffs in the California case to violence. Then, he seeks to link them to white nationalism in a case that has nothing to do with race. But the worst part of the article is probably his suggestion that Charles Murray is a racist, which is based solely on an anonymous accusation of adherence to “white nationalism.” Here is a newsflash for Cleve Wootson: Cleve Wootson has also been called a white nationalist!

"Of course, I don’t have to say who called Cleve Wootson a white nationalist because I am using the journalistic standards of Cleve Wootson and The Washington Post. Nor do I need to mention the fact that Cleve Wootson is actually black. I’m not interested in accuracy. I just know that calling someone a white nationalist is the best way to impugn his character and to shut him down when he is trying to speak. What’s good enough for the Washington compost and Cleve Wootson is good enough for me! " . . .

The Hypocrisy of the Liberal Media Explained in One Cartoon

Mike Adams, the Health Ranger  . . . "Today, the mainstream leftist media has devolved into a network of tabloid activists. They've abandoned key principles they once claimed to stand for, and they now spew hatred and bigotry against minority groups who are then subjected to death threats, the burning down of their businesses, and the most outrageous bullying and intimidation imaginable.

"This, the leftist media claims, is "tolerance."

"But their "tolerance" has turned to totalitarianism. They now demand total obedience to their own narrowly-held beliefs, values and preferences, and anyone who does not fall into line is intimidated, bullied, vilified and even death-threated. As this news story now explains, gay activists are demanding Christian churches be forced to shut down if they do not publicly endorse gay marriage." . . .

What Is A Social Justice Warrior (SJW)?

Image result for leftist journalist cartoons

Roosh V  "Social justice warriors believe in an extreme left-wing ideology that combines feminism, progressivism, and political correctness into a totalitarian system that attempts to censor speech and promote fringe lifestyles while actively discriminating against men, particularly white men. They are the internet activist arm of Western progressivism that acts as a vigilante group to ensure compliance and homogeny of far left thought.
"The true definition of SJW is up for debate, but most generally it has become a catch-all term that describes feminists and liberals who actively try to solve the perceived social injustices of modern society by organizing in online communities to disseminate propaganda, censor speech, and punish individuals by getting them terminated from their employment. They have also been successful at positioning themselves in the upper echelons of universities, media organizations, and tech companies.

SJW’s do not view all humans as equal

"Using a “privilege” hierarchy, SJW’s calculate the worth of a human being based on perceived injustices or wrongs that group has suffered since the time of ancestral man, using selective and narrow interpretations of history. SJW’s elevate groups that they believe have received the least amount of “privilege” in the past, and then use internet activism in the form of mobs and community purges to target those who are determined to have greater amounts of privilege. " . . .

John Mara says signing Colin Kaepernick would lead to fan backlash

Image result for colin kaepernick cartoons

Yahoo News  "The NFL party line, as articulated by Commissioner Roger Goodell, is that Colin Kaepernick’s unemployment is football related, Giants owner John Mara has acknowledged off-field concerns contributing as well.

"Mara told Jenny Vrentas of that the Giants didn’t discuss signing Kaepernick this offseason, and that they’ve heard from many fans who would be angry if they did.
“ 'All my years being in the league, I never received more emotional mail from people than I did about that issue,” Mara said. “If any of your players ever do that, we are never coming to another Giants game. It wasn’t one or two letters. It was a lot. It’s an emotional, emotional issue for a lot of people, moreso than any other issue I’ve run into.”
"The Giants signed kicker Josh Brown to a new contract after he was arrested for domestic violence, and kept him on the team last year after he was suspended for domestic violence. It’s extraordinary that Mara says he heard from more fans about Kaepernick — a player on another team, who didn’t do anything illegal — than about Brown.
"Mara’s comments say a lot about Kaepernick’s continuing unemployment: For many teams, the decision not to sign Kaepernick may go beyond whether the coach or G.M. think Kaepernick can help on the field. It may go up to the owner, who fears Kaepernick would hurt the franchise off the field."
The left loves this style of freedom of speech; just don't expect a conservative to be allowed to speak on campus. I wonder how many people who love Kaepernick have attacked conservatives on the streets or shouted down a Republican speaking anywhere. TD

On This Memorial Day, We Are Unmaking America

Image result for gen mattis photos

National Review  . . . "I thought of this reality when I read General James Mattis’s comments to Dexter Filkins, one of our nation’s best national-security writers. In the middle of a long profile of Mattis, Filkins writes this: 
When I asked what worried him most in his new position, I expected him to say ISIS or Russia or the defense budget. Instead, he said, “The lack of political unity in America. The lack of a fundamental friendliness. It seems like an awful lot of people in America and around the world feel spiritually and personally alienated, whether it be from organized religion or from local community school districts or from their governments.” 
"Remember, these comments aren’t coming from a “kids, just get along” preschool teacher but rather from one of America’s most courageous and fearsome warriors. A man who’s called “Mad Dog.”

"I fear that General Mattis is right. There is a profound lack of unity in America. In fact, let’s ask a key question: Is there a single significant cultural, political, social, or religious trend that is pulling Americans together more than it is pushing us apart?" . . .Read more

The Need for a Middle America News Network

American Thinker  "The decline and lurch to the left of the Fox News Network provides an opening for any astute conservative billionaire: create a news network specifically intended to provide news from the viewpoint of most of America, which is to say the seventy-five percent of Americans who live in Flyover Country.  While the geographic concentration of political power in America is appalling, the geographic concentration of media power is much worse.
"Because the media defy elections and, in fact, determine elections, having almost all national news pass through the tiny channel of the New York-to-Washington Beltway is toxic to our national life. 
. . . 
"Fox News rightly picked the target audience to make it grow: those millions of Americans disgusted by the ideological monopoly of the leftist establishment media.  The Middle America News Network would represent not just the ideologically disempowered, but the culturally disempowered, who find their beliefs and lives treated as weird curiosities.  The market share for this news network could skyrocket fast, particularly among the tens of millions of Americans who simply never watch network news any longer." . . .

"In short, she is a globalist insider who sees the green hysteria as a viable way to control people and their lifestyles."
Fox News Moves Left: Are We About To See The Birth Of Another CNN?
. . . "It is my belief that Fox News is hoping to become acceptable enough to the Left in this country to gain big corporate accounts.

"I believe this is folly. People watch Fox News because they cover news while respecting conservative views. As they move leftward, Americans will start looking for another home. Already, I get more of my news online than I get from Fox News. My hope is that conservatives on this site will document the use of Leftist language on Fox and that we can convince Fox that any Leftward move, would result in low ratings and reduced profits, but we must be prepared to look elsewhere for our news."

11 unsung WWII black American soldiers tortured to death by Nazis receive posthumous honors for heroism

NY Daily News  . . . "The dead were assigned to the 333rd Field Army Battalion, members of a unit lauded for its deadly aim in battle. Yet theirs was a sacrifice long ignored by their country. 

"In 1949, a U.S. Senate subcommittee released an official report exhaustively detailing 12 similar massacres. Every last casualty was listed — but the Wereth 11, as they came to be known, didn’t warrant mention.

Authors Denise George and Robert Child drew on extensive interviews with family members and fellow G.I.s for this account.

"The soldiers of the segregated 333rd FAB were among the first blacks to be trained for actual combat, rather than shunted into service positions. Under the command of VIII Corps, they landed on Utah Beach on June 19, 1944. 

"Within the 333rd, the unit known as Charley Battery distinguished themselves from the get-go. A reporter from Yank magazine watched stunned as the unit, firing four rounds in 90 seconds, drilled an explosive into the turret of a German tank nine miles away." . . .

Sad: Hillary Still Insists She Won…

After Coptic massacre, Trump gives Egypt courage to blow out terrorist hellholes in Libya

After you read this, can you still make an intelligent argument that Obama was a better president than Trump?

Egypt launches strikes on Libya 'terror camps' after bus attack
. . . "In a message to US president Donald Trump, the Egyptian leader added: "You have said that your priority is to confront terrorism, and I trust you are capable of doing that."
"Mr Trump had earlier joined world leaders in denouncing the latest killing of Coptic Christians in Egypt.
"In a statement, the US president said: "The bloodletting of Christians must end, and all who aid their killers must be punished."

" 'Terrorists are engaged in a war against civilisation, and it is up to all who value life to confront and defeat this evil.' " . . .
American Thinker  "After the Palm Sunday massacre of Coptic Christians worshipping in Egypt, President Trump tweeted that he was confident that Egypt's President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi would 'handle the terror attack properly.'

"He was right - Sisi did the right thing, blowing out terrorist hideouts in eastern Libya this week, following a second horrific terror attack against Egypt's Coptic Christians on a bus, killing 28 innocents. Egypt's military pilots not only blew the hell out of Derna, a frontier camp that shelters terrorists, and then released film footage of the act and the damage to celebrate the victory.
"It sends a message. It creates a new fear for terrorists who have up unitil now gotten away with it. It tells the losers the game is over.
We will not hesitate to protect our people from the evil," [Sisi] said in a televised speech on Friday.
"This is how it's done.
"It might not have happend had President Trump not only offered Sisi the support he deserved, he framed the issue in the only terms that spoke the truth.
"Terrorists are engaged in a war against civilization," Trump said in a statement issued by the White House. "This merciless slaughter of Christians in Egypt tears at our hearts and grieves our souls.
"Wherever innocent blood is spilled, a wound is inflicted upon humanity.
"But this attack also steels our resolve to bring nations together for the righteous purpose of crushing the evil organizations of terror – and exposing their depraved, twisted, and thuggish ideology.
"America also makes clear to its friends, allies, and partners that the treasured and historic Christian communities of the Middle East must be defended and protected," President Trump said. "The bloodletting of Christians must end, and all who aid their killers must be punished."
"Sisi himself said that Trump's support gave him courage, and RT News reports that those close to the matter say the U.S. probably provided intelligence on which targets to bomb.
I direct my appeal to President Trump: I trust you, your word and your ability to make fighting global terror your primary task,”[Sisi] said.
"It's an appropriate response, and may be the beginnings of victory in the war on terror. What we are seeing here is resolve and willpower. The Sisi-Trump alliance may just take out a significant part of the terrorists' game plan. The U.S. [and Egypt] finally want to win."  By Monica Showalter
Do liberals not have a single clue as to world events and the effect of Obama's meekness on it all? Obama only had anger for America's allies and many other Americans. TD
