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.

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.

President Trump Trolls Iran…Hard…After One of Their Missiles Explodes

For the past few years Iran has been trying to parlay its experience manufacturing knockoff North Korean intermediate range ballistic missiles into establish a homegrown satellite program. Iran avows that, just like its nuclear program, it is peaceful and will benefit the human family. Sane people look askance at it and see it as a test bed for developing ICBM technology.

To date, all they’ve done is scatter cheap Iranian hardware over the desolate moonscape that is most of Iran.

Just a couple of days ago, they tried again and achieved pretty much what they had in the past. An explosion. At first they denied it had happened

the commercial imagery seemed to confirm the initial reports

Today, President Trump was hard at work trolling Iran.

Coming on the heels of reports that US Cyber Command shut down the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’s naval arm in retaliation for it shooting down a US drone in international air space:

American military cyber forces in June knocked out a crucial database used by Iran’s elite paramilitary force to target oil tankers and shipping traffic in the Persian Gulf hours after that force shot down a U.S. surveillance drone, according to U.S. officials.

The retaliatory strike by U.S. Cyber Command against the system used by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps was approved by President Trump, who that same day called off a military airstrike against Iran because killing Iranians would not be “proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone.”

U.S. Cyber Command did not address questions on the secret operation. “As a matter of policy and for operational security, we do not discuss cyberspace operations, intelligence, or planning,” Elissa Smith, a Pentagon spokeswoman, said in a statement.

It seems like a lot of people do believe the US was behind the explosion.

https://twitter.com/les_politiques/status/1167527057989033984a

And the legend will grow as not only are the Iranians as susceptible to conspiracy theories of the “hidden hand” as your typical Democrat talking about Rupert Murdoch or the Koch Brothers, the last people who want to admit failure are the management and engineers who can’t seem quite able to do what should be the pretty simple task of replicating 70-year-old technology.

Of course, virtually no story on Trump is complete without something like this:

Just the standard reminder that a) the president has declassification authority and b) the odds of the White House release a classified image without IC approval is basically zero.

Can’t wait for Fat Jerry Nadler to sink his tiny little teeth into this one.

Canada’s Former Prime Minister is ‘Rooting for a Direct Hit’ of Hurricane Dorian on Mar-a-Lago, as Ugliness Rules the Day

Westlake Legal Group hurricane-63005_1280-620x413 Canada’s Former Prime Minister is ‘Rooting for a Direct Hit’ of Hurricane Dorian on Mar-a-Lago, as Ugliness Rules the Day Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

How’s this for international relations: On Thursday, former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell said she hopes Hurricane Dorian will land a “direct hit” on U.S. President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida.

Good grief.

Dorian was upped to a Category 2 Thursday, as the waters of bad weather keep-a-churnin’.

And there’s bad blood — apparently, between the erstwhile leader of Canada and these United States. Or, at least, its leader.

Isn’t this out of character for our peace-loving neighbors to the north?

To wish Dorian on anyone is quite the statement — it’s poised to reach Category 4 by Monday.

Trump’s sent out a warning to Florida residents that the storm’s gonna be huge:

Kim’s using Twitter, too, just not in a helpful way:

[Screenshot from Twitter, https://twitter.com/ezralevant/status/1167267696532213761/photo/1]

In case you’re wondering, the doom-wishing politician served as the Maple Leaf’s PM for five months following 1993’s resignation of Brian Mulroney.

Twitter took her twittish tweet to task:

Hateful, indeed.

Not only does her message threaten the welfare of the 62,500 square-foot mansion, but all its staff and guests.

Not to mention the Leader of the Free World — as stated by Fox News, “The president often makes visits to Mar-a-Lago when he’s not in Washington D.C.”

Very ugly, Kim.

We should expect better from world leaders. Including former ones.

How cool are you?

Are you calm in a fire? Chilled in a tornado? Relaxed in a tsunami?

As a movie buff, I find myself constantly incensed by the lack of silver screen realism in tense situations — the bad-to-the-bone dude unshaken by the high stakes of grim death.

But — as reported by NBC 5 — in St. Louis, one man has proven me wrong: it actually can be realistic.

Early Wednesday morning, a middle-aged marauder with a very scary rifle invaded Behrmann’s Tavern, demanding everyone’s money and valuables.

People got down, and I don’t mean disco.

Everybody danced to the tune of fear, except one cool cucumber who wasn’t going to let himself be a victim of crime.

A guy at the end of the bar seemed almost oblivious to the heavily-armed robbery. I say “almost” because the intruder tried to take his phone. And he wouldn’t let him have it. The robber finally gave up.

Then the phenomenal Fonz lit a cigarette — like Dennis Hopper in True Romance.

Eventually, the thief came back around for a second attempt at seizing Mr. Cool’s goods. Again, he refused.

Perhaps inspired by his fellow barfly’s bodacious buzz, one patron got off the floor, took a stool, and fired up a cigarette himself.

You’ve gotta see the video.

You may be cool; but are you this cool?

Comey Believes An Apology Is Owed; Too Bad Trump Can’t Fire Him Again

Westlake Legal Group obama-comey-620x413 Comey Believes An Apology Is Owed; Too Bad Trump Can’t Fire Him Again Special Counsel Sean Hannity President Trump Mueller Investigation Kimberley Strassel Jim Jordan james comey Glenn Greenwald Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption donald trump democrats Dan Bongino byron york buck sexton Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

On Oct. 28, 2013, President Barack Obama and James Comey participate in the installation ceremony for Mr. Comey as FBI director at the bureau’s Washington headquarters. PHOTO: CHARLES DHARAPAK/ASSOCIATED PRESS

 

Fired, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey sure has chutzpah. He has mistaken Attorney General William Barr’s decision not to prosecute him for vindication. Following Thursday’s release of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’ surprise report which focused specifically on Comey, he feels that an apology is owed. Here is what he had to say:

Far from exonerating Comey, the report found that he had engaged in a great deal of wrongdoing. My colleague, Bonchie, posted the details of Comey’s January 6, 2017 briefing of President-elect Trump, which was “almost certainly a trap” here.

The Washington Examiner’s Byron York explained that “the group’s plan was to spring a scandalous allegation on President-elect Trump, quickly record his reaction, use a prearranged secure videoconference to discuss the information, and fit it all into the FBI’s ongoing (but unknown to Trump) “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation.” Read the whole article.

To me, their behavior sounds treasonous. The group’s actions were premeditated, disingenuous and subversive.

Additionally, the January briefing was not Comey’s only offense. The report discusses his mishandling of classified information, the leaked memos, his frequent leaks of other material and further violations of DOJ and FBI policies. The report says that Comey set “a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees.” It states:

Former Director Comey failed to live up to this responsibility. By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees […] Were current or former FBI employees to follow the former Director’s example and disclose sensitive information in service of their own strongly held personal convictions, the FBI would be unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly.

More importantly is that the findings in this report are expected to pale in comparison to what is uncovered by the other two reports we’ve been waiting for. Sean Hannity called Thursday’s report the “tip of the iceberg” which is why the DOJ declined to prosecute.

The reports to follow, the IG’s main report on FISA abuse by the FBI and John Durham’s report on the origin of the Trump/Russia investigation, will provide a treasure trove of information. Hannity said that Comey will be playing a starring role in the FBI’s FISA court application process because he signed off on three of them. He speculated that Comey could be charged with premeditated fraud. Hannity told viewers:

The Durham report will dig into how the government’s powerful tools of intelligence were used and abused against President Trump’s campaign and then President Trump. And also, in fact, whether or not illegal spying occurred, the outsourcing of intelligence gathering to friendly countries like Italy, Great Britain and Australia, all designed to circumvent US laws against spying on Americans without a warrant for the purpose of destroying a duly elected president. That will be a bombshell. James Comey is also implicated in that particular case. We also wait to see what roles James Clapper and John Brennan played in all this.

All of this is to say that the misguided former FBI Director is claiming victory way too soon because it appears that he remains very much in legal jeopardy. The worst is yet to come.

Many in the political world were stunned by Comey’s tone deafness. Here are some of the reactions to his bizarre request for an apology.

The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel: “A curious request given the report’s bottom line was in fact this: “We conclude that Comey’s retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement.”

Journalist Glenn Greenwald: “Holy shit: the arrogance and self-regard of @Comey is unparalleled. The Inspector General from his own Department just issued a scathing report accusing him of wrongdoing so severe that it “shocked” his own colleagues & he’s demanding apologies instead of expressing contrition.”

Television host and author Dan Bongino: “Comey celebrating a report, which clearly lays out his ethical depravity and disregard for the rules of his employment, is the Comiest Comey thing ever. What a clown this guy is.”

Radio host Buck Sexton: “So James Comey was – it’s official now – a sanctimonious, self-righteous bureaucrat who believed in holding other people to standards that he himself was free to break when he saw fit. This should surprise no one.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH): “Now we know why Comey didn’t want to prosecute Clinton—he didn’t see a problem mishandling sensitive information. After clearing her, he did it too!…Comey, like Clinton, thinks he’s above the law.”

And, of course, President Trump: “Perhaps never in the history of our Country has someone been more thoroughly disgraced and excoriated than James Comey in the just released Inspector General’s Report. He should be ashamed of himself!”

Too bad Trump can’t fire him again.

We Just Found Out Who’s Been Leaking Trump’s Private Conversations

(AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

If you’ve been wondering how so much of what Trump says in the privacy of the Oval Office manages to make its way to The New York Times and other outlets, we might have an answer.

Over the years, we’ve seen more stories than I can keep up with leaked to the press centering on something Trump supposedly said in private. Often they center on harmless, off the cuff statements (such as the “nuke hurricanes” flap) that are then printed to try to embarrass the President. Context, whether something was actually a joke, or whether it’s even being presented truthfully never seems to matter and since everything is anonymous, it can never be countered.

Now, Trump’s most trusted executive assistant has been caught leaking details, not just about happenings in the Oval Office, but also about his family.

Westerhout’s departure followed reports that she had attended an off-the-record dinner with reporters at the president’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, sharing inside information about what went on the Oval Office as well as personal details about the Trump family.

This isn’t something that just happens once. You can bet your savings that she’s being doing this for a very long time. She just happened to get caught this time.

In fact, it’s no surprise that many media members are painting her in a sympathetic light after the resignation. They just lost what was probably their main source into the President’s inner circle. Outlets like Axios and The New York Times have seemingly had a direct line into the Oval Office since Trump was inaugurated. Westerhout may not be the only source, but she appears to be a major one and it explains so much about how the press got ahold of personal comments that only a handful of people would have heard.

Westerhout will now learn a hard lesson, namely that he press didn’t really care about her. I’m sure they flattered her and made her feel special while she had the goods. Now that she’s gone, she’ll be cast aside as worthless. She could have kept her job for decades to come, long after Trump left the White House and now that’s gone. All to get some plaudits from Maggie Haberman and company. I have a feeling she’s regretting that decision.

Perhaps she can earn a bit role on MSNBC for a few months though.

Sean Hannity Dogs ‘Super Patriot’ James Comey Over DOJ Violations – He’s Just ‘a Leaker and a Liar’

Westlake Legal Group pinocchio-595453_1280-620x415 Sean Hannity Dogs ‘Super Patriot’ James Comey Over DOJ Violations – He’s Just ‘a Leaker and a Liar’ Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

On Thursday, Sean Hannity reacted to James Comey’s reported 26 violations while in service as FBI director.

According to a report by the DOJ’s Inspector General, James was guilty of drafting, leaking, and retaining written records of private discussion with the President.

Trump himself was certainly unimpressed:

Adding to the cacophony of critics — which, surprisingly, including CNN and MSNBC (here) — Sean condemned Comey:

“Today was the release of what is only a narrow sliver of information and it’s brutal. Tonight we do know James Comey is in fact not the super patriot he claims. We know him to be a leaker and a liar.”

The former director’s defended himself on social media:

But many haven’t appreciated it:

Sean characterized James as, it may be said, just another dirty politician:

“[A]s it turns out, America’s self-proclaimed super patriot is nothing more than a dirty corrupt former bureaucrat that will be in serious, significantly legal jeopardy as this all unfolds.”

And the Fox host believes there’s more on the way:

“Another massive investigation which I believe will become the biggest part of all of this abuse of power and corruption, well that surrounds the origins of the Russia witch hunt. “Now that probe — now being conducted by the attorney general and by John Durham — is now focused on how James Comey, how John Brennan, James Clapper, others weaponized the powerful tools of intelligence that we entrust to these brave men and women in our intelligence community and how they weaponized them against all things Donald Trump.”

The Russian collusion investigation and its hoopla in the media have been absolute madness. I’m of the opinion that it will never, ever end. It’s like Return of the Jedi’s Saarlac pit — the story and its accompanying insanity will be digested slowly over a thousand years.

And America’s already in the throes of indigestion.

Hey Jen Rubin And All Other Apologists: Comey Most Certainly DID Leak His Memos To The Press (And Possibly Worse)

Westlake Legal Group c3dd54ba-d8e4-451b-be9a-46d143e195dd Hey Jen Rubin And All Other Apologists: Comey Most Certainly DID Leak His Memos To The Press (And Possibly Worse) leaks IG Report Front Page Stories Featured Story comey collusion Abuse of Power

The media apologists for disgraced former FBI Director Jim Comey — and that includes Jim Comey himself, which I wrote about yesterday here — are out in full force trying to spin Comey’s leak of sensitive and classified information to the press into a lie Donald Trump told the American people.

Jen Rubin, the Washington Post’s resident “conservative” (who’d like to see “her” party burned to the ground by the way), even dropped the E word to clear her hero and prove Trump is slinging bull dung.

WaPo’s Senior Political reporter Aaron Blake backs up his colleague but goes one further by charging other Trump friendlies with perpetuating the “lie” that Comey leaked information to the press.

I’m not saying language parsing in pursuit of defending Comey and smearing Trump is what these guys are actually paid to do, but kudos to them for going above and beyond to fulfill that employment mandate if that’s what’s going on.

But for the life of me I can’t imagine why else they would concoct such an absurd narrative that Comey didn’t intend for the press to get the information in his memos and publish it except that it helps them stay in favor in their newsrooms. Because Comey most certainly did leak to the press. He admitted it to Congress, and the IG report simply says he didn’t give the information to the press directly.

Comey was clever. He used a friend.

My hunch is this is why Attorney General Barr chose not to prosecute for the leaks because imagine what the histrionics would be right now if there were actual charges against Comey for violating FBI policies and creating a separate file of his conversations with the president when those documents were only declared classified after the fact.

Apoplectic, that’s what.

And perhaps another backlash the likes of what we witnessed during the Kavanaugh hearing wasn’t what the administration thought was warranted for this particular infraction. Particularly because, as John Solomon of The Hill notes, the worst may be yet to come for their hero.

Comey may try to deflect with celebratory comments that he wasn’t charged with mishandling classified information, but he remains in a precarious position — and the trend lines aren’t good.

Next up will be the IG’s findings regarding Comey’s truthfulness before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court and whether he attested to false or misleading statements in order to electronically monitor a presidential campaign.

That determination may not be as cut-and-dried as many think it is, but it hopefully, at a minimum, will explain why Comey believed he could sign off multiple times on a FISA application based largely on information that he, himself, described as “salacious and unverified.” His exposure here is potentially much more devastating than breaking FBI record retention and handling rules.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, Solomon writes, invoking U.S. Attorney John Durham‘s investigation into whether policies were violated in pursuit of initiating a counterintelligence probe into the Trump campaign.

But where it could get really hairy for Mr. Comey, Solomon writes, is here.

But beyond that, Mr. Durham and his team likely will follow up on emerging indicators that Comey may have colluded with other intelligence community leaders to actually “manufacture” the justification needed for an investigation by targeting covert informants against campaign representatives in violation of established policies and procedures.

Collusion. The thing that the apologists have been screaming about for three years, and declared unequivocally the worst of the worst when they believed Trump may have done it, could very easily end up being the very thing Durham decides Comey was engaged in from the start.

So demand apologies for Mr. Comey if you so desire and it helps you curry favor, apologists, but be forewarned: we may find out very soon how much he doesn’t deserve them.

Cadbury Lays An Egg With Introduction Of New ‘Unity’ Bar, Meant to Encourage Diversity

Westlake Legal Group racism-2099029_1280-620x310 Cadbury Lays An Egg With Introduction Of New ‘Unity’ Bar, Meant to Encourage Diversity racism Popular Culture Front Page Stories Featured Story Culture Cadbury's New 'Unity' Bar Allow Media Exception

 

Cadbury has introduced a new candy bar which they believe will promote diversity. The “Unity” bar (pictured below) contains four different types of chocolate. Cadbury describes this limited edition bar as “the first bar with dark, blended, milk and white, united in one bar.”

The new product was launched in India earlier this month to celebrate the country’s “Independence Day on August 15.” In their product announcement, Cadbury wrote: “This Independence Day, let’s celebrate a country that stands united in its diversity.”

The package shows people of various races holding hands in “unity.”

Cadbury appears to have laid an egg with this new offering; they have received both criticism and ridicule.

The company has been accused of trivializing racism. Some consumers were outraged and “criticized the firm for making light of a serious issue.”

One columnist wrote, “Congratulations to Cadbury for solving racism.” A student remarked, “Cadbury ending racism one chocolate bar at a time…”

Here are some of the reactions to Ad Age’s announcement for the new candy bar on Twitter:

Who was at the decision table when this was made?

Wow thank you for solving racism with this brave candy bar.

Racism has been solved.

A spokesperson from Cadbury’s advertising agency, Ogilvy, told Fox News: “India is a diverse country, with people of different castes, creed, languages, regions, religions…Everyone living together, but not always with love. Cadbury Dairy Milk, which is loved by everyone, wanted to send a powerful message of unity.”

Yeah…No.

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.
