The Washington Post Smears a Starbucks Barista for Putting ISIS On Someone’s Cup

Targeting individuals with no public profile to virtue signal for social justice warriors seems to be a favored past time of The Washington Post.

We all remember how they treated Nick Sandmann after he supposed “smirked” at a Native American man named Phillips. In actuality, the teenager was being harassed by Phillips and verbally assaulted by the Black Hebrew Israelites, a racist hate group.

Well, the Post is at it again, this time going after a Starbucks barista for supposedly discriminating against a Muslim man.

Niquel Johnson paid for three drinks in Philadelphia on Sunday, and in typical Starbucks fashion, an employee asked for his name. Johnson, 40, told them “Aziz,” his Islamic name pronounced ah-zeez. He has used it for 25 years — and “countless” times at that particular store.

But three unusual things happened on this occasion, he said. When his order was ready, a staffer announced them by drink type, not his name.

The second unusual part was the employee wrote his name as “ISIS” — the acronym for the Islamic terror group — in the printout attached to all three drinks…

“I was shocked and angry. I felt it was discrimination,” Johnson told The Washington Post on Friday.

Yeah, you are reading that right. The Washington Post is running, as a national news story, an allegation of discrimination that was obviously just someone misspelling a name. Before ISIS became the king of international terrorist groups, it was actually used as a name, so there’s that detail as well in this. It’s also perfectly reasonable that someone not familiar with Middle Eastern names might confuse “Aziz” for “Isis.”

Of course, there’s more to this story. Namely, that the Post was simply regurgitating a CAIR press release without disclosing that’s what they were doing.

Sunday after leaving work, Philadelphia resident Abdul Aziz Johnson stopped at a Chestnut Hill Starbucks on Germantown Avenue with two friends and ordered three iced drinks, according to Jacob Bender, the executive director of CAIR-Philadelphia, the local chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations…

In a press release, Bender asked, “Was this an innocent mistake, or a sick joke associating Mr. Aziz and his friends, who were wearing traditional Muslim clothing, with the extremist group responsible for tens of thousands of deaths in Iraq and Syria, thus perpetuating the lie that Muslims are uniquely prone to violent behavior and terrorism?”

The entire story came from CAIR. Apparently when terrorist connected, dumpster fire organizations like CAIR say something, the valiant reporters at The Washington Post treat it as an unbiased source. That seems concerning.

Actually, the Post’s version is worse, because even the CAIR commentary acknowledges this could have been an honest mistake. Oh yeah, and the barista who wrote the word on the cup? He’s African American, just like Abdul Aziz is.

But there’s a broader issue here, which I mentioned early on. The way the media are constantly going after normal people, often for honest mistakes, and trying to ruin their lives is disgusting. It’s poison to our social fabric. It’s also incredibly hypocritical, as these same press outlets cry foul the moment you target any of their reporters for criticism. This stuff needs to stop. A barista misspelling someone’s name is simply not national news, and the only reason to treat it is as such is for purely political reasons. Enough already.

On Friday, a woman was arrested for an alleged attack on a Department of Homeland Security immigration facility.

With a Molotov cocktail, no less.

According to The Associated Press, the lady walked into the lobby of Oakland Park’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office and tossed the gasoline-filled bottle.

Fortunately for everyone inside, the fuse came disconnected from the bottle.

Acting Director of Citizenship and Immigration Services Ken Cuccinelli tweeted his shaking head over the ordeal:

“Today’s attempted attack on one of our USCIS facilities using a Molotov cocktail is another example of the use of violence in place of debate by those who oppose the proper application of our immigration laws. This is the 2d attack on a DHS facility in 2 months using a Molotov cocktail. Violence has no place in our society. Thankfully, no one was hurt today. We’re grateful to our security guards & the law enforcement officers of FPS who apprehended and arrested the assailant.”

Officials believe the attempt at terrorism and a July attack in Tacoma Washington (here) are unrelated.

The woman — Cellicia Hunt — was handcuffed by security officers and taken into custody by Federal Protective Service. As indicated by court records, she was charged with maliciously attempting to damage or destroy a government building by fire.

On Tuesday, the 35-year-old will appear in a Fort Lauderdale federal court.

She’s not likely to get off the hook — the whole incident was caught on video.

Surely some will attribute the insanity partly to the far Left’s increasingly extreme vilification of America’s immigration workers.

Ultimately, of course, Cellicia’s responsible for her own actions.

But if you incite craziness, the crazies will be incited.

This isn’t likely to be the last we see of such an attempt, and it’s only a matter of time — if similar madness continues — before innocence are very seriously harmed.

Fox News Slaps Back at Trump After His Twitter Criticism

Westlake Legal Group fox-news-alert-SCREENSHOT-620x326 Fox News Slaps Back at Trump After His Twitter Criticism twitter Rant Politics Neal Cavuto Kira Davis Guy Benson Front Page Stories Front Page fox news feud Featured Story Election donald trump dnc democrats criticism 2020

Some Fox News personalities have apparently had enough of being denigrated by the President.

You may recall that earlier this week, Trump went on a Twitter rant in which he slammed Fox News for interviewing a DNC official. Kira Davis covered it and gave her analysis in a write up a few days back.

Neal Cavuto took to the airwaves late in the week and opened his show with a monologue pointedly telling Trump that Fox News “doesn’t work for you, Mr. President.”

We saw a similar reply from Guy Benson.

Personally, I think this is being purposely obtuse. Trump was not asserting that Fox News was his employee. He was saying the network wasn’t working for him and his supporters, as in it’s not producing the content they want anymore, often enough. It may sound really cool and snarky to slap back and say you don’t work for him, but that’s clearly not what Trump was even saying.

Now, that’s probably an overreaction given most of Fox’s biggest names are still outwardly pro-Trump, but I can understand the criticism. As Kira noted in her piece, conservatives don’t have dozens of non-left wing, major outlets to choose from. They’ve come to rely on Fox to balance the scales and when they see segments that mirror CNN, they naturally get frustrated. What’s the point of Fox if it moves so much to the center that you can get the same thing from Jake Tapper’s show?

Yes, news networks should report the news honestly and that means criticizing all sides at times, but no one should pretend Fox News hasn’t rose to prominence specifically because they’ve championed a conservative viewpoint.

It’s probably best for both sides that this silly feud not go any farther though. Trump needs Fox News on some level and they need him and his supporters.

James Clapper Endorses Breaking the Law While Defending James Comey

These people were once in charge at the highest levels of our intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Is it any wonder Republicans have zero faith in these institutions at this point?

James Comey was recently found to have mishandled classified information and broke the law by the DOJ Inspector General. Of course, prosecution was declined because no one is ever held accountable in Washington. Instead of slinking into the background, Comey decided to claim the report as vindication and his allies rushed to MSNBC and CNN studios everywhere to defend his malfeasance.

Enter James Clapper, one of the most insidious, corrupt actors during the Obama administration.

Notice self-described really serious journalist Brian Stelter sharing this clip without a hint of push back. A former government official just admitted he supports breaking the law based on the whims of partisan, appointed officials. That seems like something worth a little critiquing doesn’t it? But Clapper is actually on CNN’s payroll, because being corrupt gets you TV gigs these days as long as your corruption targeted Trump.

As to Clapper’s comments, of course there’s a rule book for for what he describes as an “extraordinary situation.” It’s called the normal rule book. I can’t express properly just how incredibly dangerous it is for bureaucrats to think they can simply flaunt the law if they have a gut feeling about something.

The brazenness with which these former officials operate is typically pretty striking, but to see one just openly endorse breaking the law seems noteworthy. If only we had a media complex willing to actually tackle issues like this instead of handing them fluff interviews. CNN has become an absolute joke. Hiring Andrew McCabe, even as he was found to have lied to the FBI, and guys like James Clapper show they have no credibly left. It’s all about pushing a narrative.

I honestly don’t see how the FBI, CIA, and DOJ ever earn back trust at this point. Their histories are littered with abuses and they never seem to learn from the fall out. In fact, they seem to not care at all. It doesn’t matter who gets stuck at the top, these agencies are filled with career employees, the vast majority of which are liberal. Who’s to say they won’t do all this again the next time they get back in power? They almost assuredly will given there have been no consequences to this point.

Ex-Canadian PM Fauxpologizes for Tweet “Rooting” for Dorian to Hit Mar-a-Lago – but Only to Those Offended

When severe weather events are fast approaching land and threatening hundreds of thousands of lives, the last thing on any decent person’s mind is rooting for property destruction as a way of political revenge.

Unfortunately, former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell is not one of those decent people.

Alex Parker wrote earlier this week about a tweet Campbell posted on Wednesday in response to another tweet that labeled Hurricane Dorian as a “#majorhurricane threat” to Florida’s east coast, and to President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Here’s what Campbell, an apparent Trump Derangement Sufferer, said:

Though it’s been a long time since Campbell was Canada’s PM (1993), she still plays a very active role in Canadian politics at the highest levels:

Ms. Campbell has chaired the Independent Advisory Board on Supreme Court appointments since 2016. The panel of legal scholars is tasked with recommending potential candidates for seats on the Supreme Court to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Campbell, who was the Prime Minister for only 132 days, later clarified on Thursday that she didn’t actually want anyone at the Palm Beach resort to get hurt (thank goodness). But she still took the opportunity to blame Trump for the hurricane itself because of course:

She also initially told her critics to “get a grip”:

Fortunately her original tweet was screencapped because Campbell deleted it Friday morning with this explanation:

“I …sincerely apologize to all it offended” = not an actual apology.

Actor Allen Covert was one of the more high-profile Twitter users to blast Campbell’s comments:

As of this writing, here’s the latest projected path for Dorian:

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Shockingly Makes the Case For the Census Counting Citizens

Westlake Legal Group chris-hayes-620x317 MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Shockingly Makes the Case For the Census Counting Citizens reapportionment Politics MSNBC Media immigration Front Page Stories Featured Story electoral college democrats Citizenship Question Chris Hayes census Allow Media Exception

To the best of my knowledge and belief, no one has ever accused MSNBC’s Chris Hayes of being smart. I’m not saying that it hasn’t happened at sometime in the past but it certainly hasn’t happened recently. Yesterday, his own show released this clip of Hayes lecturing an audience on the constitutionality of the Electoral College. Here he is assuming his past persona as an adjunct professor (which is basically like being an Uber driver for unemployed pseudo-academics0.

I think there’s actually a deeper philosophical thing happening of what is American democracy is for. And the weirdest thing about the Electoral College is the fact if it wasn’t specifically in the Constitution [dramatic splayed finger gesture pointing towards the heavens] for the presidency, it would be unconstitutional.

Huh? Do you know what, if the 13th Amendment wasn’t in the Constitution, it would be unconstitutional as was the case before it was passed. What kind of faux insight is this. The sad thing is that Hayes is thinking he’s making a deep point and one must presume anyone stupid enough to want to be in Hayes’s studio audience was suitably impressed and went away muttering this nugget to themselves. I’ll probably see it on twitter a few hundred times today.

What he misses is the obvious: people don’t elect the president, states elect the president. The Electoral College was how small states, like Delaware and Connecticut, were convinced to join the union. Without it, the nation as it has existed since 1787 ceases to exist and becomes something entirely different.

Let’s move away from his jihad against the Electoral College and focus on the second part.

Here’s what I mean by that. Starting in the 1960s, 1961, specifically, the Supreme Court started developing a jurisprudence of [dramatic index finger gesture] “one person, one vote.” The idea is that each individual vote has to carry roughly the same amount of weight as each other individual vote. Which was a pretty intuitive concept but it was not a reality. There were all sorts of crazy representational systems that were created that would not give one person one vote and would disenfranchise certain minorities…you can guess which one [knowing titter from the studio audience…you are just so clever Chris].

Here’s an example. Let’s say you’ve got a city, it’s 60% black and it’s 40% white, okay. Here’s how you ensure white people stay in charge. Divide the city into four voting districts, right? But you put the entire black population in one district. Sixty percent of the people. And then each district elects one city council member. Voila. And now a city council for a majority black city is run by a majority white government.

Let’s take a look at that statement about the weight of votes. He’s right. And where, right now, do you find Americans being disenfranchised in much the same way that he uses in his city council example? Anywhere there are large numbers of illegals. Because if you live in a district that is 100% citizen your vote is literally worth half as much as a vote of someone living in a district where half the voters are illegals. That is how an illegal-heavy metropolis like Los Angeles or Dallas or Chicago or Miami can dominate state politics because their electoral power is exaggerated by having congressional districts formed based on total people, not total voters.

In other words, by counting bodies and not citizens what happens is that citizens become the black voters in Hayes’s example. They are all packed into one district. Three other districts, composed of mostly non-citizens have representatives elected with only about 13% of the total voting population. To get an idea of what that looks like nationwide, take a look at this map.

In a one-on-one war of words between conservative talk show host/political commentator/author Dana Loesch and disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti, my money would be on Loesch every time.

Loesch was on the Twitter machine Thursday reading CNN the riot act over media firefighters Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy suggesting that Trump criticizing NY Times columnist Bret Stephens over his bedbug insult overreaction was part of a broader Trump “war” on the press:

Loesch then noted that CNN had been waging a war of its own – against Trump and his supporters over non-issues and by way of inviting on unhinged guests:

After continuing on in a few more tweets with examples, Loesch concluded by shaming CNN for elevating Avenatti for months as a heroic ResistanceWestlake Legal Group 2122 Dana Loesch Levels Michael Avenatti in Back and Forth Over His Porn Star Lawyer Status, Mounting Legal Troubles Social Media republicans Politics North Carolina Michael Avenatti Media journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Dana Loesch Culture CNN Allow Media Exception   leader when it was obvious that he was a fraudster who was exploiting Daniels to score political points with the Woke Mafia in advance of a rumored presidential bid:

Avenatti got his feelings hurt and lashed out:

Loesch clapped back that he had to have used the search terms “porn lawyer” to find her tweet, which he denied while throwing another weak jab about the NRA:

Loesch then absolutely torched Avenatti with a finishing move for the ages:

“You can go shave your back now.” SICK BURN. #Boom

His response was pathetic, but by that point Loesch was done with him and had moved on:

Poor Michael Avenatti just can’t get any respect. The world’s smallest violin is playing for you, buddy. Bless your heart.

Clown Show: Politifact Shills for Joe Biden in Ridiculous Fact Check of His Relationship with Robert Byrd

Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a campaign event at Keene State College in Keene, N.H., Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019. (AP Photo/Michael Dwyer)

Just a few days ago, I wrote about an absurd “fact check” done by the geniuses at Politifact on Joe Biden and his repeated claim that President Trump had never denounced white supremacists David Duke and Robert Spencer.

As I noted at the time, Biden’s claim should have been rated “pants on fire” false because Trump had done both, but it was only given a “mostly false” by Politifact because Trump had never mentioned Spencer by name and because of Trump’s comments about the Charlottesville riots (which they wrongly mischaracterized).

Unfortunately, it’s not the first time they’ve gone to bat for the Democratic presidential frontrunner this month. They also wrote about a photo that has been circulating on Facebook of Biden and the late Sen. Robert Byrd. Here’s the photo:

Thoughts?

Posted by Enlisted Nine Fight Company on Friday, August 9, 2019

After noting that the photo, taken in October 2008, was authentic, here’s what they ruled (bolded emphasis added):

The Facebook post claims that Joe Biden was photographed with Robert Byrd, Grand Wizard of the KKK. That exaggerates Byrd’s role in the KKK.

In the 1940s, Byrd organized and led a local Klan chapter as its Exalted Cyclops, but he wasn’t a Grand Wizard. And he ultimately renounced his views from that period of his life though his past and former ties to the KKK were raised throughout the rest of his life.

By the time this photo of Byrd and Biden was taken, Byrd’s public expressions of regret and shame over his earlier involvement in the KKK was well-documented and often-repeated.

We rate this Facebook post Mostly False.

What they didn’t note was that as of 2001, though Byrd was no longer a member of the KKK he was still using the “n” word.

What is true is that Democrats started the KKK. What is true is that Democrats opposed civil rights legislation for black people up until the late 1960s. What is true is that Biden considered Byrd a friend.

It doesn’t make Biden a racist, of course, but what they fact checked is whether or not Byrd was as high up in the KKK as a Grand Wizard, which is an irrelevant distinction in the scheme of things as it relates to his involvement and praise of the racist group.

It’s almost as if they were insinuating that even if Byrd were still a member of the KKK, he didn’t rise to the level of Grand Wizard, which would mean Biden’s relationship wit him was not as shocking as it might have seemed or something.

Crazy.

    If there’s one thing NY Times columnist and Never Trumper Bret Stephens did right this week, it was accidentally uniting many on the left and right against his over-the-top reaction to being called a “bedbug” by George Washington University associate professor Dave Karpf. The professor tweeted out the mild insult in response to a Monday report about bedbugs being discovered in the Times’ newsroom.

    If there’s one thing Squad leader and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) accidentally did right this week in turn, it was to reaffirm her own pettiness and thin-skinned nature in response to even milder criticisms.

    AOC’s involvement in the Bret Stephens drama happened on Tuesday, the day after Karpf noted that Stephens had emailed him and cc’d his university provost over the metaphorical bedbug insult. To briefly recap, here’s what Karpf tweeted that started it all and how Stephens responded:

    Ocasio-Cortez weighed in by chiding Stephens for his overreaction, suggesting the insult was harmless, and insinuating that the columnist – who has argued against snowflake culture in the past – was a snowflake himself as well as a defender of “vile language”:

    Two days later, AOC responded to a First Amendment group’s request that she stop blocking Twitter users over disagreement:

    Conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham chimed in with a grammar correction for the Congresswoman:

    Pretty tame in the scheme of things, right? Not to AOC:

    Remember: Just two days before, she basically called Stephens a “vile language”-defending snowflake for overreacting to an “insignificant” bedbug insult.

    Twitter users had some thoughts:

    Facts don’t care about AOC’s feelings, of course, but unfortunately AOC doesn’t care about the facts. Sigh.
