Wow: Tucker Carlson Calls National Security Advisor John Bolton a ‘Bureaucratic Tapeworm’

Here’s a put-down you may not have heard before.

On Friday, Tucker Carlson gave National Security Advisor John Bolton a severe tongue-lashing, calling the official a “bureaucratic tapeworm.”

How’s that for original.

Tucker was excoriating John for, in his view, pushing from within the administration for a war with Iran.

The comment came in the aftermath of a tense sequence of events — Iran’s Revolutionary Guard shot down a U.S. spy drone over the Strait of Hormuz Thursday. Subsequently, the President eyed an attack, ultimately pulling back due to the projected casualties (here).

Trump expressed his preference for something more “proportionate.”

Tucker played a clip highlighting the above, capping it wth the wish that “our leaders contemplating war” would ask that “most basic of all questions.”



“The whole thing, in the end, offended his sense of decency,” Tucker praised. But, he asserted, “Policymakers in Washington crave a war with Iran”

The host cut to “CNN’s 36-year-old national security analyst attack the President yesterday.”

And then:

“Only in foreign policy circles do people say things that stupid. In fact, last night was a high point in the Trump presidency. … Ill-advised wars are like doing cocaine: The initial rush rises your poll numbers, but the crash is inevitable and in this case, it would be horrible.

How’d we get so close to war with Iran?

According to Carlson, in so many words, a bunch of people don’t care about its cost.

Tucker profiled “Left-wing New York Times columnist Bret Stephens” who “took a break from attacking Donald Trump” to celebrate “neocon” John Bolton’s hiring in April of 2018.  “Stevens assured MSNBC viewers that John Bolton was a great choice because he would push the president toward war.”

Next, the host played war-friendly (harsh and hilarious) clips of Bolton, followed by this:

“John Bolton is a kind of bureaucratic tapeworm. Try as you might, you can’t expel him. He seems to live forever in the bowels of the federal agencies, periodically reemerging to cause pain and suffering — but critically somehow never suffering himself.

“His life really is Washington in a nutshell: Blunder into obvious catastrophes again and again, refuse to admit blame, and then demand more of the same. That’s the John Bolton life cycle. In between administration jobs, there are always cushy think-tank posts, paid speaking gigs, cable news contracts. War may be a disaster for America, but for John Bolton and his fellow neocons, it is always good business.”

Wow.

Watch the video above. And never get into an insult match with Tucker Carlson.

President Trump Warns Iran: War Would Bring ‘Obliteration Like You’ve Never Seen Before’

Westlake Legal Group trump-meet-the-press-iran-SCREENSHOT-620x332 President Trump Warns Iran: War Would Bring ‘Obliteration Like You’ve Never Seen Before’ white house washington D.C.

During a taped interview Friday — which aired on Sunday’s Meet the Press — President Trump warned that, if the U.S. attacks Iran over its development of nuclear weapons, things are gonna get reeeal ugly:

“I’m not looking for war, and if there is, it’ll be obliteration like you’ve never seen before. But I’m not looking to do that. But you can’t have a nuclear weapon. You want to talk? Good. Otherwise you can have a bad economy for the next three years.”

Notably, Trump explained that he’s willing to have a sit-in with Iranian leaders to prevent such a Middle East malady.



The Prez’s remarks come after Friday’s hubbub over Iran’s Revolutionary Guard having shot down a U.S. spy drone over the Strait of Hormuz (here), which occurred amid already significant tension (here and here).

Trump called off a strike “10 minutes” before it was set for launch, citing the projected casualties.

Speaking to host Chuck Todd, the Commander-in-Chief called it a “modest but pretty, pretty heavy attack schedule.”

As I covered previously, for now, sanctions are the name of the game (here). They begin Monday.

But no matter what — and no matter what it takes to stop it — Trump warned, “They cannot have a nuclear weapon. … They cannot have a nuclear weapon. They’d use it. And they’re not going to have a nuclear weapon.”

Protest Erupts at a Washington Drag Queen Story Hour, & One Claim Seems Too Insane to Be True. Is it?

Westlake Legal Group spokane-drag-queen-story-hour-protest-SCREENSHOT-620x307 Protest Erupts at a Washington Drag Queen Story Hour, & One Claim Seems Too Insane to Be True. Is it? Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception

[Screenshot cropped from Arlene Herndon on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/arlene.herndon.5/posts/1260858630786615]

 

This story is insane.

You’ve probably heard of Drag Queen Story Hour, where men dress as women and read to little kids. If you haven’t, check out the controversial public library trend here and here.

The New York Times is for it, via an op-ed: “Leave Drag Queen Story Hour Alone! Trump supporters think men in makeup are a bigger threat to family values than babies in cages.”

Note to the author: When a person is for or against a particular thing, it doesn’t mean they believe it is more or less important than another thing.

Regardless of what anyone believes about the concept of a manly Mother Goose, what happened on June 15th — if reports are to be believed — is flat-out crazy.

In Spokane, Washington, queens descended upon the South Hill Public Library. And it was chaos: approximately 300 people from a group called 500 Mom Strong came to protest; in opposition was another protest group numbering in the hundreds — 500 Drag Queen Strong.

Purportedly, over 30 police officers showed up. New Covenant Baptist Church Pastor Afhsin Yaghtin was arrested for obstructing an officer. He’d insisted he should be allowed to protest closer to the library than the designated area across the street.

Why all the cops?

From The Daily Caller:

[500 Mom Strong organizer Anna Bohach] believes the significant armed presence for the story hour could be a result of the counter-protest organization, 500 Drag Queen Strong, filing false police reports that her group made death threats against them. … She told The Daily Caller that instead, women from 500 Mom Strong have “received several death threats.”

The scene was tense, and emotions high.

Some women from 500 Mom Strong prayed. According to Anna, 500 Drag Queen Strong “yelled and screamed.”

As for the goings-on inside the library, 500 Mom Strong ally Scott Herndon described what he observed in a Facebook post:

“She casts off her clothing in front of two and three-year-olds and four-year-olds, with her hairy armpits and her huge breasts pouring out of her minimal top, and now she’s gonna read this story.”

He wrote that two books were read: Princesses Don’t Always Wear Pink and A Family is a Family is a Family.

Justine Daily brought her two kids to the story time — 13-year-old Shannon, who is gay; and 6-year old Sean, who wore a dress in response to the protest he’d heard would be waiting. Justine’s husband, Goff, asserted, “If Jesus was around today, he would be on this side.”

Now here’s where insanity outdoes itself. This seems too absurd to be true. But if the claims are to be believed…well, here they are, from various sources. You decide:

The Spokesman-Review:

“They had way more (supporters) than we did, which I expected, but it went really well,” Bohach said. “The police presence was a little ridiculous. They had snipers on the roofs. They wouldn’t allow us into the library.”

You read that correctly: Snipers.

The checkpoint to get in the library today included bag checks and metal detectors with 5 personnel. Even the 6 year…

Posted by Arlene Herndon on Saturday, June 15, 2019

The Daily Caller:

A SWAT team of two snipers was stationed on the roof of [the] public library…

Bohach told the Caller a city councilman informed her the snipers were from a SWAT team.

From The Blaze:

There also were reports of alleged snipers dressed in camouflage on the library roof. A Spokane County 911 dispatcher supervisor said the individuals in question indeed were snipers “most likely” with the Spokane Police Department SWAT team as opposed to the county SWAT team, the Christian News reported.

As noted by TDC, Anna said a city councilman informed her that the next story time (set for June 22nd) would also be attended by the FBI and U.S. Marshals.

What the frick??

Do you believe there were snipers? Please sound off about all of this in the Comments section.

Nancy Pelosi: the President Has No Power to Strike Iran at All – Unless Approved by Congress

Westlake Legal Group nancy-pelosi-iran-SCREENSHOT-620x345 Nancy Pelosi: the President Has No Power to Strike Iran at All – Unless Approved by Congress white house washington D.C. War Powers Act War Uncategorized Strait of Hormuz Sanctions Nancy Pelosi military Middle East Iran Government Front Page Stories Featured Story Elizabeth Warren donald trump democrats Congress Chuck Schumer Allow Media Exception

[Screenshot from Twitter, https://twitter.com/CNNPolitics/status/1142123514981314560?]

 

Headed into the weekend, an Iran strike was at the forefront of the news.

Following the Middle Eastern country’s destruction of a U.S. drone over the Strait of Hormuz Thursday — and amid an already-tense relationship (here and here) — President Trump had noted the U.S. was “cocked and loaded” (here).

The Commander-in-Chief tweeted that he’d stopped a retaliatory strike “10 minutes before,” due to the fact that it would’ve cost 150 lives:

But Friday, Nancy Pelosi emphasized the President has no ability to order a strike at all without congressional approval.

Pelosi said any attack on Iran “must not be initiated” otherwise.

Speaking with reporters after a meeting with White House officials, she made clear she was unaware of any precise military plan:

“We left with the idea that the President was going to consider some options. I did not receive any heads-up that there was a strike that was in the works. … Maybe the other leaders did on the Republican side, but I did not receive any of that.”

As reported by The Hill, during a Situation Room meeting Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told the President he had no power to physically hit back at Iran outside of Congress.

Elizabethe Warren posted the same:

In addition to her comments to the media, Pelosi released the following statement Friday:

We are in an extremely dangerous and sensitive situation with Iran.  We must calibrate a response that de-escalates and advances American interests, and we must be clear as to what those interests are.

“During our meeting with the President at the White House, Congressional Leaders stressed the necessity that we work with our allies and not strengthen the hand of Iran’s hardliners.

“Democratic Leaders emphasized that hostilities must not be initiated without the approval of Congress.

“We have no illusions about the dangerous conduct of the Iranian regime.  This is a dangerous, high-tension situation that requires a strong, smart and strategic approach.”

So what’s the reality? Here’s The Daily Caller:

Although [1973’s War Powers Act] requires the President to consult with Congress “in every possible instance” before deploying troops into war, it grants the Commander-in-Chief 48 hours before telling Congress that the United State military has been sent “into hostilities or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances.”

For an easy view of politics at work, one may compare the three Democrats’ claims to top Dems’ castigation of George W. Bush’s Iraq War — which they continually blamed on him after the fact, even though many of them voted for it. Now they’re saying nothing happens without their approval; back then, they were distancing themselves from a congressionally-declared war like it was going out of style.

For the moment, The Donald intends “major sanctions” against Iran beginning Monday (here). But military aggression is “always on the table until we get this solved. We have a tremendously powerful military force in that area.”

Sick of the City’s Escalating Homeless Crisis, LA Residents Launch an Effort To Recall Mayor Eric Garcetti

Westlake Legal Group la-homelessness-vice-SCREENSHOT-620x335 Sick of the City’s Escalating Homeless Crisis, LA Residents Launch an Effort To Recall Mayor Eric Garcetti Vice News Uncategorized Tucker Carlson recall election mayor eric garcetti los angeles homelessness Hollywood Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats Culture Allow Media Exception alexandra datig

Some people don’t like Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti — or, as one critic called him, Mayor Garsh***y.

And one reason some folks are less than ecstatic fans is the city’s massive and expanding homeless problem.

Last week, CNN reported:

As Los Angeles city and county officials struggle to shelter and build housing for nearly 60,000 people who are living on the streets, they are facing resistance — not just to new structures in neighborhoods where residents fear more crime and blight, but also from some within the homeless community, who insist they would rather continue living independently on the streets in their tents.

For LA resident Alexandra Datig, it’s time to trade Eric in for a new model. Hence her recall effort, which she discussed with City News Service:

“The homeless situation is in a state of emergency, and everything that we’ve done has not worked. At this point, I think we need an intervention, and we need to recall this mayor.”

Alexandra’s created the site www.recallthelamayor.com, which provides a ton of info about the issue as well as her reasons why Eric should be removed.

“He can’t handle the crisis,” she explained to the Los Angeles Times. “He needs to step down.”

On Wednesday, the activist appeared on Tucker Carlson to outline the situation (see the video below):

“I think we are living in third world conditions that are a threat to public health here in Los Angeles, and we have a mayor who is completely ignorant of that and he is an abysmal failure. … We have this position in the city of Los Angeles where our leaders seem to think that it’s okay to leave people on the street to die, just whistling past the graveyard. We have had over 3600 people dying on the streets of Los Angeles in the past five years.”

As for her Third World claim, Tucker recently welcomed historian Victor Davis Hanson, who claimed the entire state has reached Third World status (here).

Alexandra told Tucker she doesn’t wanna take any more crap (like here):

“The Los Angeles Times reported there is a $57 million a year program just to get toilets on the streets. We are dealing with environmental crimes — the type that are illegal in the state of California. You can’t allow fecal matter to go down the storm drains. It’s been happening for the past six years. It’s illegal to do that. We need to have people committed to state hospitals under conservatorship and people need to be taken off the streets. We need health screenings — these people are dying in our streets, they are vulnerable to diseases because of their immune systems…there is no prevention, no treatment. There is no interdiction. There is no incarceration.”

She’s filing a notice of intention with the city clerk. If approved, it’ll require over 300,000 signatures of registered city voters. Alexandra also started a Change.org petition; as of Tuesday afternoon, it had 8,000 signatures.

And now I’ll do something I virtually never do: I’ll share a personal anecdote. “How bad is the homeless situation?” you might ask.

One night while driving downtown, I turned onto a side street to nowhere and everything went dark. I guess the streetlights were out. But there was a giant crowd — what looked like maybe 1000 zombies all up and down the road, some walking and hanging out in the road. It was if they’d claimed the street as their village. And about 50 yards ahead, there lay something on my side of the two-lane street. Something that literally took up the entirety of my lane. I couldn’t quite make it out, but it looked like a tarp. As I came up slowly, I began to see that it was a bunch of blankets piled on top of one another. I creeped up to it. And there in the center of the blankets — in the center of the lane — was a woman sleeping.

She was just in bed for the night. A bed she’d made in the middle of the lane.

That’s how bad.

Alexandra Datig thinks she knows how to make it better. I hope she — or someone else who will come along with a different idea — is right.

The Democrats’ Newest Weapon, Accusations of Sexual Assault, Hurts Those The Party Claims To Support The Most

Westlake Legal Group METOO-620x325 The Democrats’ Newest Weapon, Accusations of Sexual Assault, Hurts Those The Party Claims To Support The Most Sexual Assault President Trump Front Page Stories Featured Story E. Jean Carroll donald trump democrats Culture Allow Media Exception 2020 #metoo

No two ways about it. The kickoff rally to President Trump’s reelection campaign was a smashing success. It was all there. The arena was filled to capacity and electricity was in the air. Some supporters even arrived 40 hours ahead of time just to secure a seat. The atmosphere was charged, the likes of which we haven’t seen since the days of Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign.

The big red “Keep America Great” balloon floats proudly over Washington.

What better time to accuse the President of the United States of rape?

Columnist E. Jean Carroll enters the stage. She accuses the President of sexual assault. She provides a first-hand account of an attack which allegedly occurred in the mid-90s. She estimates it was likely the fall of 1995 or the spring of 1996 based on the overcoat Trump was wearing and the Donna Karan coat dress she had on. My colleague, Jennifer Van Laar, reported the details of Carroll’s accusation here.

That’s better now. The air begins to seep out of the Trump balloon.

Oh, by the way, Carroll has written a soon to be released book entitled “What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal” in which she says five or six men had sexually assaulted her in the late 1990s.

What better way is there to boost sales than to accuse the President of rape?

Clearly, I have no idea what did or did not happen between Trump and Carroll. Here’s why Carroll’s account of the “experience” doesn’t sound credible to me.

Carroll is now 75 years old. In 1995, she would have been 51. How could a mature woman, a sophisticated New Yorker and a savvy professional journalist, allow herself to be sexually assaulted five or six times? Wouldn’t she smarten up after the first time, or at least the second time, and stay away from situations that could set her up for an assault?

Trump allegedly asks her to try on a “lacy see-through bodysuit of lilac gray.” She says he should try it on. They banter back and forth about who should try it on. She describes the situation in an “href=”https://www.thecut.com/2019/06/donald-trump-assault-e-jean-carroll-other-hideous-men.html”>excerpt from her new book.

“Come on,” he says, taking my arm. “Let’s put this on.”

This is gonna be hilarious, I’m saying to myself — and as I write this, I am staggered by my stupidity. As we head to the dressing rooms, I’m laughing aloud and saying in my mind: I’m gonna make him put this thing on over his pants!

I’m staggered by your stupidity too.

Also, she was in the dressing room of a major department store rather than an isolated location. Why did she not scream for help? It couldn’t have been too far away.

E. Jean Carroll’s account of alleged sexual assault almost makes Christine Blasey Ford’s story believable…actually it doesn’t, but you understand my point.

Over and above the details Carroll provides, it is the timing of Carroll’s announcement alone, wedged in between Trump’s extraordinarily triumphant 2020 kickoff rally and the release of her new book, which makes what is already a dubious accusation, well…less credible.

Carroll has two very compelling reasons to reveal such a story at this particular time.

Democrats do have a tendency to trot out sexual assault victims at politically expedient moments.

By doing so, they exploit the very group of women they claim to support the most.

The Washington Examiner’s Kaylee McGhee wrote a piece entitled,”From Kavanaugh to Carroll, a straight line of incredulity.” She writes:

Ford’s story, however, was used by Democrats to assassinate the character of a man against whom they had no corroborative evidence. She became the Democrats’ tool for derailing another Supreme Court nomination. For those who disagree, take a look at the other women who came forward after Ford. Each one of their stories was proven false. They lied to promote a narrative, and the whole nation suffered as a result.

Ford’s assault — which I do believe happened, but probably not at Kavanaugh’s hands — became the weapon…Ford is not to blame; the Democrats are, the ones who made her story public against her will and then used her, only to toss her aside afterward. As a result of their actions, even a more apparently credible accusation like Carroll’s is harder to believe.

The political cheapening of sexual assault is a disservice to survivors. Something that should serve as a unifying cry of condemnation has been turned into the cause of division; the pain of hundreds of thousands of women is now just a weapon.

Somewhere along the way, between Harvey Weinstein’s downfall and Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony, sexual assault became just another political commodity.

Isn’t it time to bring politics back to the issues?

No Sh**, No Lies Tales From the Infantry. Volume IV

Alpha Company, 3d Battalion, 6th Infantry passes in review at the July 4 parade on the Four-Ring at McNair Barracks, Berlin. July 4, 1982. Photo: US Army photo, public domain. Credit: Das AlliiertenMuseum, Berlin.

Since Colonel Mike isn’t around to spin his yarns this morning, it is my duty to take up the slack. What follows is a tale that was inspired by my colleague Alex Parker.

This is a tale of perseverance. Of mutiny. Of justice maintained. And of an old dog showing younger dogs that he was a force to be reckoned with.

Back when I was 23 years old, weighed 155 lbs, had a full head of hair and thought beer was food, I was a infantry lieutenant assigned to 4th Battalion, 6th Infantry (Regulars, By God) at McNair Barracks, Berlin. McNair was affectionately know as the “Gator Farm” because it housed three battalions of the 6th Infantry an our unit crest featured an alligator to commemorate our participation in the Seminole wars:
Westlake Legal Group 6th-infantry No Sh**, No Lies Tales From the Infantry. Volume IV tales of the infantry Miscellania military Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception

The scaling ladder is in memory of the 6th Infantry storming Chapultepec during the Mexican War. The juxtaposition of the two resulted in the troops claiming it meant that we were so low that we had to climb a ladder to kiss an alligator’s ass.

McNair Barracks was a pre-war Siemens radio factory that was confiscated in 1945 being one of the few undamaged structures remaining in that shattered city.

This first video show McNair as I knew it. My battalion was in the wing with the clock tower. The second video is it as it is today.

This is it after conversion into civilian housing.

Infantry units, particularly spirited ones, hover in a state of near mutiny. There is probably not a more arrogant creature on earth than a 20-year-old American infantryman who knows he’s very good at his job. He’ll let leadership know constantly that he’s not just another guy in a uniform and that to get respect, and not mere obedience, from him respect must be shown to him.

We had a newly arrived First Sergeant. He’d come to us from “The Zone” (the term a carry over from The Zone of Occupation and that was what Berlin troops called West Germany) to punch his ticket in an environment that remarkably benign for senior NCOs. Where junior officers were confronted with an endless series of “bet your bars” activities, so long as the correct paperwork was processed on time and reasonably accurately, life was pretty pleasant. There was even an unwritten rule that platoon sergeants and first sergeants and sergeants major didn’t go to the field while we were “in city.” Our First Sergeant was a gray, non-charismatic type who’d made his rank serving in staff positions. The troops wasted little time in letting him know, indirectly, that they were of the opinion that he was in the wrong outfit.

My platoon occupied a series of 8-man rooms (four sets of bunk beds and two wall lockers per man, one for issue gear and one for personal clothing) and we had one gang latrine. It was here that the subversion began.

Someone began leaving graffiti on the latrine walls written in human feces. The graffiti focused on the First Sergeant’s sexual proclivities and maybe even his sexual identity. The chief suspect was one of my troopers who was nicknamed “Tex.” Tex didn’t like the First Sergeant. He was also about 6’4″, which comported with the height of the graffiti off the floor.The First Sergeant made inquiries of an increasingly demanding nature but no one gave up Tex, the graffiti continued, and grew more florid and descriptive. The “Mad Sh**ter” became a man of legend. The First Sergeant was sort of caught in a conundrum and, to his credit, he realized it. He couldn’t very well allow this to continue because it was becoming a topic of conversation outside the company and he was losing respect. He could elevate the issue to the company commander (who was blithely unaware of this melodrama developing in his barracks as commanders often are…though sometimes they are unaware by design) who would bring smoke on the platoon leaders to ferret out the criminal, but this would be a senior NCO admitting to everyone that he needed his company commander’s help to fix a very personal disciplinary issue.

One day, during a break in training around the barracks, I did a walk-through of my platoon bay. When I go into the latrine I come face-to-face with one of my troops seated behind a field table. He was wearing a helmet liner (this was in the days of the steel pot), a key indicator that he was on some kind of guard duty. On the desk were a half-dozen rolls of toilet paper and a clipboard.

In order to use any of the facilities, you and the latrine guard had to conduct a joint inspection of the urinal or toilet and stall, both sign off on the condition, toilet paper was issued, business conducted, toilet paper returned, and a final clearance inspection performed. Guard duty was in two-hour shifts around the clock.

Graffiti stopped. Guard duty didn’t.

Within 48 hours someone had given up Tex.

Tex spent the next two weeks cleaning, by himself, all the latrines in the company (three large gang latrines). The giggles behind First Sergeant’s back stopped. He was never loved but he was treated with respect from that point forward and no one crossed him.

Just in Time for 2020, Pence Helps Launch ‘Latinos for Trump’ in Miami — 1 Day Before the Dems Rip Each Other Apart

Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is jonesin’ for Hispanic votes.

Therefore, “Latinos for Trump” is kickin’ off in Miami on June 25th — one day before the first of the Democratic debates.

On the 26th & 27th, 20 of the 23 determined Dems’ll battle it out (see all their late-term abortion positions here).

Oy. It’s gonna get ugly.

As for the stump for Trump, VP Mike Pence will be among the GOP officials in attendance.

Hanna Castillo — director of coalitions for Trump 2020 — told The Hill Donald’s Hispanic fans are instrumental in his continued occupancy of the White House (which will hilariously last thousands of years — see here):

“The strong Latino support for President Trump and his policies will be instrumental in re-electing the president for a second term.”

Between 2014 and 2018, the number of Hispanic voters in Florida nearly doubled — holy moly.

What are some of Trump’s “pro-Hispanic” policies that oughta make ’em swoon?

As noted by The Hill, a couple are low unemployment and the Commander-in-Chief’s support of crapped-up Venezueala’s opposition leader Juan Guaidó — Juan aims to replace President Nicolás I-ain’t-goin’-nowhere Maduro (here).

In addition, recently the Leader of the Free World insisted to Telemundo that legal Hispanics support his position on deporting illegals. Here’s a bit of that convo with anchor José Díaz-Balart:

“They want me to do it. They’re here illegally,” Trump said.

“Mr. President, they do not,” Díaz-Balart responded.

“They do,” Trump reiterated. “They don’t want to lose their jobs. They want to keep their salaries, their wages up, and they don’t want crime. When people come through, you have MS-13 coming through.”

Díaz-Balart pushed back, telling Trump MS-13 gang members do not make up the majority of migrants seeking to enter the U.S.

“The mothers that are coming with their children are not MS-13,” he said.

“I agree, but if it was 1 in 100 it’s too many,” Trump responded.

What do you think of Trump’s 2020 Hispanic appeal? And what do you expect in the upcoming debates? Let us all know in the Comments section.

Woman Fearful for Her Life Turns Over Her Estranged Husband’s Guns to the Cops. She Gets Arrested for Grand Theft

An odd case, indeed — one on about which I’d like your opinion.

Florida couple Joseph and Courtney Irby were going through a rough divorce.

On June 14th — having just completed a divorce hearing — the two got into a fierce argument. As Courtney was leaving the courthouse, Joseph rear-ended her; she was on the phone with the cops, and he was trying to run her off the road.

Allegedly, of course..

That resulted in Joseph being taken into custody and held overnight for domestic aggravated battery.

Purportedly fearing for her life, Courtney did some proactive protectin’ — she went to Joe’s apartment, searched and found his guns, and took ’em with her.

Ain’t nobody shootin’ her!

She drove the firearms to the Lakeland Police Department and told the boys in blue she didn’t trust her soon-to-be-ex-husband to turn them in.

She explained that she’d taken them from his residence, which resulted in this from the officer:

“So, are you telling me you committed an armed burglary?”

Add to that grand theft of a fiream.

The cops called Joseph at the jail, and he said he’d like to press charges.

Courtney was arrested.

She spent 5 nights in jail.

Strange case…or is it? There’s been a bit of public outcry over a woman afraid for her life taking matters into her own thievin’ hands. Some believe she shouldn’t be punished.

That group includes Democratic state Rep. Anna Eskamani:

What do you think? Should Courtney be prosecuted? She indeed took things from another person’s residence; but they were not fully divorced…are the guns half hers? What about the protection element of all this?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts in the Comments section.

Joseph and Courtney are due back in divorce court on July 16th. I’m sure a fun time will be had by all.

Trump: U.S. Will Sanction Iran in Major Ways Starting Monday

On Saturday, President Trump announced that the White House is preparing an additional set of “major’ sanctions against Iran.

He tweeted:

“Iran cannot have Nuclear Weapons! Under the terrible Obama plan, they would have been on their way to Nuclear in a short number of years, and existing verification is not acceptable. We are putting major additional Sanctions on Iran on Monday. I look forward to the day that sanctions come off Iran, and they become a productive and prosperous nation again – The sooner the better!”

As he was leaving for Camp David earlier in the day, the President told reporters sanctions will come fast and slow:

“They’re going on slowly and in some cases pretty rapidly.”



And what’s he gonna be doin’ at Camp David? More Iran:

As covered by RedState’s Elizabeth Vaughn, Iran shot down a U.S. drone over the Strait of Hormuz Thursday. A dispute arose over whether the spy plane was in Iranian airspace.

The incident heightened tensions (see here and here), of course, and The Donald tweeted that the U.S. was “cocked & loaded.”

He changed his mind, though, noting that 150 people would have died.

Bill Maher decided to correct POTUS:

Bill’s wrong, though — you can absolutely simultaneously be loaded and cocked.

Back to Trump: He affirmed Saturday, “We want to be proportionate.”

But military action is still an option:

“It’s always on the table until we get this solved. We have a tremendously powerful military force in that area.”
