Fallen Airman’s Family Shocked By The Actions Of Airline Passengers

1 Comment

H/T Western Journalism.

The actions of these people is very disgraceful.

“Pretty damn disappointed in people today.”

military family’s pain and sadness was worsened recently by the actions of a group of airline passengers.

The casket of fallen airman Ssgt. Andre Taylor was en route from Phoenix to his home in Lansing, Mich., when the incident took place.

Retired airman Ken Fitzgerald told KPHO-TV that several times throughout the flight, the crew made an announcement about what would happen upon arrival.

We have a fallen soldier onboard, fallen airman, and we ask you to remain seated as we pull into the gate until he can be escorted off the aircraft first,” Fitzgerald said, repeating the announcement.

Fitzgerald said the request to remain seated was meant to show respect for the serviceman who had lost his life while serving the United States.

When the Delta Airlines flight made its landing in Lansing, the military escort for Taylor stood and began departing the plane. Instead of remaining in their seats, as asked, the majority of the passengers began removing their items from under their seats and the overhead bins and making their way to the exit.

I was just in shock,” Fitzgerald said. “I was looking at them and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?!’”

He shot a video, which he later posted on his Facebook page.

In his post he wrote, “RIP SSgt. Andre Taylor. Pretty damn disappointed in people today.”

“I was saddened by the disrespect people had displayed on the plane that day, but now I’m just so overwhelmed by the love and support my brother and family has received because of that disrespect,” said Tiffany Dobson, Taylor’s sister. “It has really helped my family get through this hard time.”

Taylor, 28, was born in Lansing and had served as an airman in the U.S. Air Force for 10 years. He was stationed at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona.

Taylor’s family stood solemnly as six members of the United States Air Force Honor Guard  respectfully removed the casket from the plane and placed it in a waiting hearse.

Nancy Pelosi Mistakes Trump For Bush For Fifth Time

1 Comment

H/T Western Journalism.

Nancy Pelosi is the poster child for term limits.

As she has done at least four times previously…

During an interview with a San Francisco television station that aired Tuesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., referred to President Donald Trump as “President Bush,” at least the fifth time she has made such an error.

“Everything we have seen so far, though, with the president has been about tax cuts for the rich,” she said in the interview with KTVU. “In fact, affecting California very directly, is the Affordable Care Act. President Bush has come out against that, as you know, and it is not even a health care bill. The Republican bill is not even a health care bill. It’s a tax bill disguised as a health care bill.”

She had presumably mistaken Trump for 43rd President George W. Bush, though it is possible she may instead have been talking about his father, 41st President George H.W. Bush.

This was the second time in a span of just over a month that Pelosi had mistaken Trump for one of the Bushes.

“New Yorkers have said to me, those who have had business dealings with him, he operates this way,” Pelosi said during a weekly press conference in early June, taking aim at President Trump’s character. “First he tries to charm you. President Bush tries to charm you. If that doesn’t work … “

Though a reporter tried to correct her, she ignored him and continued speaking until an aide informed her of her mistake. Then, she apologized for her error.

Only weeks before the presser, she again confused the two presidents while speaking at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco about her battles with Republicans over abortion.

“For decades I’ve served in Congress, and for decades I’ve had to fight the Republicans’ opposition to birth control, contraception and family planning,” she said.

They do not believe in it. And a lot of those people voted for George … for, what’s his name?”

As of Thursday, the House minority leader had yet to issue a correction over her latest blunder.

Obama Criticizes ‘Aggressive Kind Of Nationalism’ In Indonesia Speech

1 Comment

H/T Western Journalism. 

Bathhouse Barry along with this Moose Slime brothers along with the leftist in America are they only intolerant people. 

They are hateful in words and deeds.

Putting America and Americans first is never a bad thing inspite of what the left says.

“The world is at a crossroads.”

Former President Barack Obama delivered a speech overseas Saturday, warning that some nations are becoming too nationalistic.

Speaking to a crowd in Jakarta, Indonesia, Obama argued some countries had adopted “an aggressive kind of nationalism,” adding that there has been an “increased resentment of minority groups.”

Though he largely stayed away from discussing President Donald Trump, Obama spoke out against the isolationism and increased nationalism that he sees as a global problem.

“We start seeing a rise in sectarian politics, we start seeing a rise in an aggressive kind of nationalism, we start seeing both in developed and developing countries an increased resentment about minority groups and the bad treatment of people who don’t look like us or practice the same faith as us,” he said.

Obama also emphasized the importance eliminating intolerance around the world.

“If we don’t stand up for tolerance and moderation and respect for others, if we begin to doubt ourselves and all that we have accomplished, then much of the progress that we have made will not continue,” Obama said.

“What we will see is more and more people arguing against democracy, we will see more and more people who are looking to restrict freedom of the press, and we’ll see more intolerance, more tribal divisions, more ethnic divisions, and religious divisions and more violence,” he added.

The former president said that during his presidency, he “wasn’t worried about what was in the newspapers” on a daily basis but was more concerned with his legacy 20 years down the road.

Obama praised the Paris Climate Accord, calling it “the most ambitious agreement in history to fight climate change,” but denounced the temporary absence of American leadership,” referring to Trump’s decision in June to remove the United States from the agreement.

Speaking in the Muslim-majority country, Obama argued people must respect those of all faiths.

“My stepfather … was raised a Muslim but he respected Hindus and he respected Buddhists and he respected Christians,” he said.

“If you are strong in your own faith then you should not be worried about someone else’s faith,” Obama added.

Joseph Curl of the Daily Wire criticized Obama’s claim that “the world is at a crossroads,” writing, “But not America. That ‘crossroads’ came and went in Election 2016. Americans chose America First.”

Sessions, Coats Tour Gitmo Detention Facility

Leave a comment

I hope they toss these terrorist bastards in Gitmo and throw away the key.

“It’s a perfect place for it.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions visited the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Friday along with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

President Donald Trump has said that unlike former President Barack Obama, he supports keeping open the facility used to detain terroists.

“Keeping this country safe from terrorists is the highest priority of the Trump administration,” said Ian Prior, a Department of Justice spokesman, in explaining Sessions’ visit.

“Recent attacks in Europe and elsewhere confirm that the threat to our nation is immediate and real, and it remains essential that we use every lawful tool available to prevent as many attacks as possible,” he said

Sessions will meet with “the people on the ground who are leading our government-wide efforts at GTMO,” Prior said.

“In addition to the Department of Justice’s role in handling detainee-related litigation, it is important for the Department of Justice to have an up-to-date understanding of current operations,” he added.

A spokesman for Coats offered a similar rationale for the national intelligence director making the trip with Sessions.

Sessions has said in the past that he supports detaining foreign terrorists at Guantanamo Bay instead of prosecuting them in civilian courts on U.S. soil.

“I’ve been there a number of times as a senator, and it’s just a very fine place for holding these kinds of dangerous criminals,” Sessions told radio host Hugh Hewitt in March. “We’ve spent a lot of money fixing it up. And I’m inclined to the view that it remains a perfectly acceptable place. And I think the fact that a lot of the criticisms have just been totally exaggerated.”

Sessions expressed concern that the Obama administration saw the facility as a liability instead of an asset.

“I think it’s time for us to think through how we’re going to use Guantanamo, to what extent we’re going to use military commissions to try these unlawful combatants,” Sessions said in March. He said he had no opposition to holding “prisoners of war … throughout the time of the conflict.”

“We’ve got to get the military on board,” he told Hewitt. “By now, we should have worked through all the legal complications that the Obama administration seemed to allow to linger and never get decided, so nothing ever happened. So, it is time for us in the months to come to get this thing figured out and start using it in an effective way.”

The detention facility was opened in January 2002 by former President George W. Bush as a place to house terrorists captured after the 9/11 attacks. At its peak, almost 800 prisoners were housed there.

Though Obama ordered the facility closed, it remained open. However, Obama aggressively worked to reduce the number of inmates housed at Guantanamo Bay. That number now stands at 41, according to USA Today.

Report Indicates Trump Might Get Another Shot At Filling Supreme Court Vacancy

I bet Little Schmuckie Schumer is crapping in his pants.

President Trump can get the Supreme Court back on the right path.

..justices typically hire four clerks, but only one if they are considering retirement…”

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has re-ignited speculation that he will soon retire, a decision that could allow President Donald Trump to drastically alter the makeup of the Court.

After a feverish round of speculation in late June that Kennedy would retire, the Supreme Court broke for its recess last week without a retirement announcement from the Ronald Reagan appointee.

Although justices have no set rules governing when they can express their retirement, the last day of the 2016-2017 Court term was speculated to be a likely time for such an announcement.

However, rumors that Kennedy might be retiring soon surfaced upon news that the justice, who turns 81 in July, has not hired law clerks for the term that begins in October 2018.

Additionally, Kennedy is telling those who are applying for clerkships that he may retire soon, according to NPR.

The protocol for hiring clerks is that each justice gets four clerks, though they only hire one if considering retirement, so that their other existing clerks can find positions with other justices.

New York’s Attorney General Investigating Eric Trump’s Foundation

H/T Western Journalism.

This is a liberal witch hunt trying to destroy President Trump’s family and hurt President Trump.

Where is the investigation into The Clinton Foundation and where their money went?

Oh silly me The Clintons are DemocRats.

“… not only shameful, but … truly disgusting.”

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who is already investigating the Eric Trump Foundation, is now reviewing published allegations that money ostensibly raised for St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital was paid out to several Trump Organization golf courses.

Forbes reported Tuesday that $100,000 in donations meant for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital went to the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

The report claimed that according to IRS documents, the Eric Trump Foundation in 2012 spent $59,085 on its annual Golf Invitational fundraiser at the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, N.Y. Those expenses reached $230,080 in 2013 and to $242,294 in 2014, Forbes reported.

The IRS reports do not show how much money went to the Donald J. Trump Foundation or other Trump affiliates. Forbes reported that costs increased when the Trump Organization began charging for the use of its courses.

“I can confirm that our office is looking into issues at the Eric Trump Foundation raised by the Forbes report,” said Eric Soufer, the attorney general’s director of communications.

The Eric Trump Foundation issued a statement in response to the allegations.

During the past decade, the Eric Trump Foundation has raised over $16.3 million for St. Jude Children’s Research hospital while maintaining an expense ratio of just 12.3 percent,” the statement said.

As reported by Western Journalism, the hospital issued a letter in January confirming the amount donated by Eric Trump’s foundation.

“The Eric Trump Foundation was also responsible for building a $20 million dollar ICU which treats the sickest children anywhere in the world suffering from the most catastrophic terminal illnesses,” the statement added.

“Contrary to recent reports, at no time did the Trump Organization profit in any way from the foundation or any of its activities. While people can disagree on political issues, to infer malicious intent on a charity that has changed so many lives is not only shameful, but is truly disgusting. At the end of the day, the only people who lose are the children of St. Jude and other incredibly worthy causes,” the statement said.

O’Reilly Shocked At Response From Senators To Comey’s Leaker Admission

Leave a comment

H/T Western Journalism.

Comey is the Congressional golden boy they want to use him to destroy President Trump.

When in reality Comey is going to destroy himself.

Comey has already perjured himself about why he leaked this information.

I hope President Trump’s lawyer hangs Comey’s lying ass . 

“I mean, it was bizarre.”

Bill O’Reilly castigated former FBI Director James Comey for taking it upon himself to leak a government document to the press to seek to vindication, and the former Fox News personality also faulted lawmakers on the Senate Intelligence Committee for not reacting more forcefully to the revelation.

“It was almost beyond belief that James Comey calmly stated in front of the world that he leaked a written assessment of a private meeting he had with the president of the United States, and a dozen Senators who were questioning him sat there with no reaction,” O’Reilly wrote in an op-ed for The Hill. “I mean, it was bizarre.”

In light of the content of former FBI director’s memos regarding meetings with President Donald Trump receiving wide circulation in the press, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, asked him during Thursday’s hearing if he had shown copies of them to anyone.

Comey informed the senator that he had, explaining he wanted to get his side of the story out.

“My judgment was I needed to get that out to the public square,” Comey said, so he asked a friend who is a professor at Columbia Law School to pass it along to the press.

“I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel,” Comey added.

O’Reilly said the admission is stunning.

“Let me paraphrase the Comey attitude about the memo: ‘Oh yeah, it was great. I woke up and said gee, I have to get my side of the story out after I was fired,” O’Reilly wrote. “‘So why don’t I give a copy of a very private memo that may implicate the leader of the free world in a possible cover-up regarding the Russian investigation? I know, I’ll give it to a friend of mine!

“‘Yeah, that’s the ticket. I’ll pass the very private memo, favorable to me but damaging to the president, to my pal who will then give it to The New York Times, a newspaper that despises President Trump to a degree rarely seen on this planet.’”
