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:

Please take a moment to say some prayers for all in its path, including my beloved home state.

Washington Post Manages to Dump on Pumpkin Spice Season with Details of that Hateful Seasonal Product

As the arrival of the infamous fall flavoring is here WaPo manages to find reasons why it is something to be shamed.

If you have frequented social media at all in the past week or so you have probably been alerted to the arrival of products on the market infused with the seasonal flavor matrix known as “Pumpkin Spice”. This becomes one of those pedantic arguments that flare up in threads, with ardent supporters of the flavoring battling people with little substance who are unreasonably angered by a new product that is not a compulsory purchase.

Personally, I see the new selections of pumpkin-flavored beers sprouting up in coolers this time of year, and I steer clear. Having sampled this style in the past I have never once felt gratitude for doing so, nor been inspired to open a second bottle. But when I now see them I do fly off in an enraged tirade of opposition; I simply choose a different label to imbibe.

But now, as if the imbalanced social conflict over flavored coffee potions is not infantile enough, the Washington Post has arrived to further cast this herbal conflict into a deepening rift. It turns out, as the paper is reading history, that your Halloween-themed latte is the product of intolerance and you are tacitly supporting genocide.

But underneath those fuzzy-sweater vibes, the spices in “the PSL” have a dark history. Particularly nutmeg. It’s a story of war, genocide and slavery.

Yes, we are now entering the realm where soccer moms and frenzied secretaries who are ordering these drinks from Starbucks can be declared hate-filled proponents of ethnic-cleansing or some such. Beginning circa the 1400s, in what is modern-day Indonesia, a series of islands produced nutmeg that fed the growing global spice trade. Then the Europeans showed up and screwed up the process. The Portuguese came and muscled in for about a century, then others wanted in on the action in a fashion not unlike contemporary drug lords.

The Dutch showed up in 1599, and everything got gruesome soon afterward. They seized the islands, built a fort and informed the Bandanese they were no longer allowed to trade with anyone else, according to historian Vincent C. Loth.

This led to a number of violent skirmishes between the Dutch and the Bandanese, Loth wrote. Then in 1621, Dutch Governor-General Jan Pieterszoon Coen led 2,000 troops on an assault on the Bandanese. Their leaders were beheaded, and the wealthy were enslaved and sent overseas. The remaining inhabitants fled into the mountains, where, over the following months, nearly all met one of three fates: They were murdered in Dutch attacks, starved to death, or jumped off cliffs in despair.

In the interest of full disclosure, this writer is of Dutch lineage. (All complaints of inherent hatred and crass appropriation should be sent to the editors.) 

I believe now it is evident for all to see that anyone who dares purchase these seasonal caffeine delivery systems, or bastardized variations of zymurgy formulas, is actually supporting the very violent acts that we are trying to curtail. Look at the closing factoid provided by The Post.

In a bid to end a skirmish with English claimants to the nutmeg harvest the Dutch turned over another island as compensation. The English then redubbed New Amsterdam as Manhattan, and now nearly 250 Starbucks are located therein. So all of those pumpkin potables that are purchased are funneling money directly in support of that murderous trade.

You should be properly shamed for your genocidal frappes, as WaPo has positioned things.

Dana Loesch Levels Michael Avenatti in Back and Forth Over His Porn Star Lawyer Status, Mounting Legal Troubles

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

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.

    AOC Chided Bret Stephens’ Bedbug Reaction, but Her Reaction to a Laura Ingraham Tweet Days Later Was Much Worse

    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.

    Irony Overload: Lemon and Cuomo Argue About Whether CNN Should Provide a Platform for Dishonest Guests (Watch)

    Westlake Legal Group DonLemonChrisCuomo-620x357 Irony Overload: Lemon and Cuomo Argue About Whether CNN Should Provide a Platform for Dishonest Guests (Watch) white house Social Media Politics North Carolina Michael Avenatti Media journalism It Is Okay To Laugh Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump Don Lemon democrats Culture CNN Chris Cuomo Brian Stelter Allow Media Exception

    Primetime anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo debate on CNN – 8/29/19. Screen grab via CNN.

    The most unintentionally hilarious few minutes of primetime television on cable news is arguably the time on CNN when Chris Cuomo’s show is ending and Don Lemon’s starts, where they have a brief exchange of thoughts while the cameras are still rolling.

    This is the two of them at their most arrogant and narcissistic as they try to one-up each other in the Woke TV Anchor Sweepstakes

    Such was the case on Thursday night, when the two continued a discussion they had had on Wednesday night about whether or not the network should give airtime to who they characterized as dishonest Trump administration officials.

    Fox News sets the scene:

    CNN’s anti-Trump anchor Don Lemon on Thursday night told Trump surrogates who attack the media and “lie all day long” that appearing on CNN “is a privilege” and “not a right.”

    Following his colleague Chris Cuomo’s “closing argument” that lambasted RNC spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany for claiming that President Trump doesn’t “lie,” Lemon began their nightly handoff by reading the Merrian-Webster’s definition of the word “lie.”

    “A lie is a lie all day long,” Lemon said. “For these folks to say he doesn’t lie or that you’re maybe misunderstanding how he’s communicating- that’s rich.”

    Lemon knocked Trump defenders who attack the media, insisting they apologize “when the media gets it wrong.”

    The media “apologizes” when they get it wrong? Not sure what “media” he’s talking about, but it certainly isn’t CNN.

    Cuomo, who (to my surprise) evidently has a tiny bit better of a grasp on what journalism actually is about than Lemon, explained to his colleague why it was necessary to have political guests on their programs:

    Cuomo then challenged the “CNN Tonight” host on how he would “conduct the journalism of vetting” the Trump campaign if he doesn’t allow anyone who represents it onto his show, which Lemon countered by saying “you can have people on who represent it” but don’t have to sit through the “lies.”

    “We have Trump supporters on all the time and we hold them accountable to the truth and they don’t make excuses for everything this president does,” Lemon explained. “But there are those like the one who was on last night- excuses about everything.”

    “It’s the job of us to test and expose and let people see it for what it is- one: so that they can believe their eyes and ears, and two: if they’re against it, they know how to oppose it,” Cuomo told Lemon.

    It’s also the job of journalists to have political guests on if for no other reason than to simply allow the airing of differing legitimate viewpoints with which liberal CNN hosts like Cuomo and Lemon might disagree. And if there is disagreement, counter or dispute the argument. If you feel someone is lying or is otherwise not being honest, correct them.

    This is what’s called “political discourse” for those of us not well-connected enough to be awarded primetime anchor chairs on CNN.

    Lemon later attempted to up his game during the segment by telling his colleague Cuomo that people who don’t tell the truth should not be allowed on CNN in order to “promote propaganda and lies”:

    “I don’t think people need the space to promote propaganda and lies,” Lemon continued. “I think that’s a disservice… It’s allowing someone- giving them a platform that they haven’t deserved, that they don’t deserve.”

    Watch the segment below:

    This must be a new position for Lemon to take, considering how frequently he’s had fraudster Michael Avenatti on his program, not to mention all the times Avenatti has guested on other programs like Brian Stelter’s “Reliable Sources”:

    Either Lemon himself is being purposely disingenuous here about not wanting to allow certain guests on CNN who “tell lies”, or he’s being truthful about it and would just prefer CNN limit the dishonest people on their network to those who host their programs.

    I’ll leave that for readers to decide.

    The Babylon Bee Takes on the Fauxtrage Mob’s Ridiculous War on Comedian Dave Chappelle – and Wins

    In his recent Netflix special “Sticks and Stones“, comedian Dave Chappelle has unleashed hell on cancel culture and fauxtrage mobs, and also turned the tables on liberal arguments when it comes to issues like abortion and President Trump.

    Naturally this makes Chappelle Public Enemy Number One to leftists and their outrage army whose sole purpose in life is to find things to be offended about in order to wage social media wars against the offending subject. The idea is to force the object of the mob to shut up or otherwise confirm.

    Chappelle has proven over and over again that he’s just not gonna do that.

    Because Democrats and so-called progressives have so heavily invested themselves in “identity politics”, under normal circumstances any criticisms of Chappelle would be viewed and called out as “racist” because the comedian is black.

    But those rules don’t apply in this case, because Chappelle is doing what fewer and fewer comedians are doing in modern times when it comes to the demands from the left for milquetoast “comedy” and “safe spaces” for minority groups: he’s, in a nutshell, giving them the bird.

    With that in mind, the geniuses at the Babylon Bee wrote one of the better takes on liberals and their reactions to Chappelle’s “Sticks and Stones” special:

    After some confusion was expressed by casual observers of apparent hypocrisy in their denunciation of Dave Chappelle’s most recent comedy special, liberals from around the country clarified that they only want black voices to be heard when those voices are saying liberal-approved things.

    The offended white progressives asked black comedian Dave Chappelle to “keep it down” and “maybe not talk so much” after his comments made them feel uncomfortable, sources confirmed Thursday.

    Read the full “report” by clicking on the link below:

    Perfect.

    Chappelle, whose political affiliation is unknown, has demonstrated that he’ll call both sides to the carpet politically. But because he doesn’t spare the snowflakes on the left from his politically incorrect wrath, he gets treated like a traitor to The CauseWestlake Legal Group 2122 The Babylon Bee Takes on the Fauxtrage Mob’s Ridiculous War on Comedian Dave Chappelle – and Wins republicans Popular Culture Politics political correctness Ohio North Carolina Netflix Hollywood Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Entertainment donald trump democrats dave chappelle Culture comedy Allow Media Exception Abortion   , as a comedian whose opinions and shows you should ignore because he refuses to march in lockstep with leftist orthodoxy.

    Nobody puts Dave Chappelle in a corner, and that includes perpetually fauxfended liberals. Kudos to the Babylon Bee for getting right to the heart of the matter.

    Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a campaign event at Dartmouth College, Friday, Aug. 23, 2019, in Hanover, N.H. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)

    Bonchie wrote earlier today about a huge story from the Washington Post on Thursday where Joe Biden was found to have “jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story of bravery, compassion and regret that never happened.”

    It’s a hugely embarrassing story for Biden, coming on the heels of a month full of gaffes and misstatements he’s made on the campaign trail that have raised questions about his age and mental acuity.

    Tucker Carlson discussed the news of Biden’s false war story on his Fox News program Thursday night, and during the segment he brought in Mark Steyn to weigh in with his thoughts on Biden being caught making up a war story to embellish his foreign policy creds.

    Steyn ended up performing a dramatic reenactment of Biden’s story that left Carlson in stitches:

    Carlson turned to Steyn, who maintained that the fictitious story was, in fact, Biden at his best. “To be fair, Tucker, this is the old Biden back,” he said. “The recent Biden of this campaign, the stumbling, bumbling, mumbling guy who can’t remember the name of Barack Obama, that’s an embarrassment. He stumbles, he trips on three-syllable words like ‘Democrat.’”

    “But this is classic Biden,” Steyn went on. “This is Biden at top form, where he does this vivid, coherent, brilliant narrative, in which not a single detail is correct.”

    Steyn then delivered a facetious monologue, pretending to be Biden as he recounted taking fire while president on D-Day, among other fake adventures. “This was classic Joe Biden. He’s back! His mojo has returned! His mojo knows what state it’s in.”

    Watch Steyn retell Biden’s story below to a laughing Carlson:

    A slightly longer version of the video shows a still-chuckling Carlson admitting at the end that he was drooling:

    All humor aside, this was – as Twitchy described it – classic Steyn, and his larger point was that this is who Joe Biden really is. Biden wouldn’t be Biden if he didn’t invent stories from time to time in an effort to impress voters and beef up his political bonafides. We learned this back during his first presidential run in 1987.

    Though he dropped out of that race due to confirmed stories of plagiarism, he stayed in politics and in the Senate, and eventually became President Barack Obamas’s vice president. So Biden has never really paid a political price for the tall tales he often likes to tell.

    As a result, he has been emboldened to believe he can get away with telling them. Though the media has finally caught on and has started taking a closer look at his embellishments, only time will tell if the focus on them will impact voters. So far, it hasn’t.

    Her climate change rant from Tuesday night on Instagram Live was wild enough, but that wasn’t the only thing she talked about during that chat that had people rolling their eyes.

    The New York Post reports on how AOC also insinuated that her generation is the true greatest generation ever:

    “I think they’re badass,” said Ocasio-Cortez of young people in the clip, a copy of which was tweeted by conservative political voice Caleb Hull. “I think young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors.

    “I think they’re profoundly courageous, because they’re willing to puncture more taboos and have conversations that, frankly, older generations sometimes struggle to have,” said AOC.

    Immediately after saying that she didn’t “want to paint everybody with a broad brush,” AOC did just that, acting as though young people pioneered the concept of political activism — and apparently forgetting the Vietnam War protests and push for racial equality of the 1960s — let alone the WWII generation that saved the world from authoritarian rule and dubbed by former “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brokaw in his 1998 book, “The Greatest Generation.”

    “I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave, because they’re actually willing to go to the streets,” she said. “How ’bout that?

    “Previous generations have just assumed that [the] government’s got it,” she said, leaning into the camera and cupping her hands to her mouth.

    Watch the video clip below:

    A number of conservatives strongly objected to AOC’s mischaracterizations of millennials, including former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who weighed in via a series of tweets on Thursday with a much-needed history lesson for Ocasio-Cortez:

    ‘Nuff said.

    Homeless Man Burned to Death on LA’s Skid Row; Advocate Again Calls for Federal Intervention

    Earlier this month, as reported at RedState, longtime Los Angeles homeless advocate Rev. Andy Bales said that the scope of the public health and humanitarian crisis in Los Angeles is now beyond what the state and local government can handle and that only a FEMA-type intervention can solve it now.

    (Note, readers, that the paragraph states “FEMA-type” and not FEMA. There seemed to be some confusion in the prior article.)

    Bales is sounding the alarm again after a Skid Row fixture, Dwayne Fields, was killed Monday night – burned to death when his tent was set on fire. According to the LA Times:

    “Fields, 62, was inside his tent around 11:30 p.m. when, prosecutors allege, another man set his living quarters ablaze. Responding officers found Fields walking down 6th street, his body still burning, according to two law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the case candidly.”

    Deon Joseph witnessed the horrific scene.

    In reply to Deon Joseph’s tweet, Bales said that “gang control” of Skid Row has gone on for too long and that more help is needed.

    According to an LA Times report, there has been a recent spate of violence around Skid Row.

    Four people, including a social worker and a security guard, were shot in San Julian Park last week after a dispute erupted on the sidewalk. Earlier this month, a 59-year-old homeless man was beaten to death with a pipe during a robbery.

    Fields’ chronic homelessness exposed flaws in the current bureaucratic response to homelessness in Los Angeles, according to Pete White, Executive Director of Los Angeles Community Action Network (LACAN). Fields had found a home multiple time over the last five years, but wanted to stay with his partner, who had “mobility issues.”

    “The problem was his partner who was still out there. They could never find accommodations for a couple, which is one of the big problems with our … system of providing services,” White said. “There are very limited opportunities for single individuals and even less so for partners.”

    Another homeless advocate, Gen. Jeff Page, said:

    “You’ve got a lot of families that are stuck on the sidewalk because they want to stay together,” he said. “There’s situations like this where, to me, the skid row infrastructure is to blame, because it’s not accommodating the needs of human beings and natural human family systems.”

    Fields, a street musician, had a large network of friends in the Skid Row area, and they gathered Wednesday night to celebrate his life and to comfort Valerie Wertlow, the partner he left behind.

    The group held a candlelight vigil, walking from LACAN’s office to the corner of Sixth and San Pedro streets, where Wertlow and Fields’ tent had stood.

    “What two nights earlier was a crime scene became a living memorial to Fields.

    “Alongside Wertlow’s belongings were three pictures of her companion of two decades. Paper printouts of Fields’ smiling face were attached with paper clips to the chain link fence that backstopped her home.

    “Speakers were set up. A keyboard was plugged in. And Fields’ friends sang ‘A Change Is Gonna Come,’ ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Amazing Grace.” Wertlow led the group in singing ‘Lean On Me.’

    “Wertlow said mutual attraction helped start their relationship, but it was Fields’ kindness that kept them together.

    ‘If you needed anything … he had it,” she said. “He had you.’

    “And now, Wertlow said, she has him.”

    Another homeless man, 38-year-old Jonathan Early, has been charged with capital murder in Fields’ death.

    What supposedly compassionate progressives don’t understand is that their “compassionate” policies regarding vagrancy, mental health treatment, and homelessness are leading to record numbers of deaths among the homeless population. In 2018, 918 homeless people died on the streets in Los Angeles County. Of course, this is in addition to the public health crisis and increases in crime fueled by the astronomical rise in the homeless population.

    When compassion is misguided, it leads to rule by those with no compassion at all.
