Is Jemele Hill’s HBCU Article Worth the Outrage?

=========
=========
Promoted from the diaries by streiff. Promotion does not imply endorsement.
=========
=========

Today, I find myself in the awkward position of having to defend journalist Jemele Hill.

A few days ago, Jemele Hill published a piece for The Atlantic in which she addressed issues facing historically black colleges and universities (HBCU’s). The article, titled: “It’s Time for Black Athletes to Leave White Colleges,” has elicited outrage from right-wing Twitter and members of the conservative chattering class.

Several right-leaning news outlets excoriated Hill, claiming that she was arguing in favor of segregation. Singer and activist Kaya Jones tweeted: “Promoting segregation gets us nowhere @jemelehill”

Caleb Hull also joined in on Twitter:

“Jemele Hill in 2018: Segregation in schools was racist

Jemele Hill today: We need to segregate our schools”

Candace Owens chimed in as well:

“So @jemelehill is calling for black athletes to leave white universities.

YASSSS JEMELE!! Self-imposed segregation! Our ancestors would be so proud!

We should make it ILLEGAL for blacks and whites to play sports together and call it Hill-Crow laws.

…You insufferable idiot.”

This isn’t the first time that the former ESPN anchor has been the subject of criticism from the right. On more than one occasion, she has accused President Trump of being a white supremacist. But there is one glaring problem with the accusations that she was pushing for segregation.

None of them are true.

The headline certainly suggests that Hill was going to recommend that black athletes segregate themselves, but when you read the article, you can easily see that she is not promoting segregation. In the piece, Hill explained that HBCU’s  — which also admit white students who wish to attend – have played an integral role in the success of many black professionals while contributing to the black middle class. She writes:

“Despite constituting only 3 percent of four-year colleges in the country, HBCUs have produced 80 percent of the black judges, 50 percent of the black lawyers, 50 percent of the black doctors, 40 percent of the black engineers, 40 percent of the black members of Congress, and 13 percent of the black CEOs in America today.”

Many prominent HBCU’s are in financial trouble. In her article, Hill suggests that a group of high-profile black athletes choose to bring their skills to an HBCU, thereby helping these institutions earn more revenue. “While NCAA rules prevent them from making money off their own labor at the college level, they are essential to the massive amount of revenue generated by college football and basketball,” she explains.

Far from suggesting that all black college athletes should attend HBCU’s in an act of segregation, Hill suggests that some students make that choice. “Three or four of them could spark a national conversation—and, in basketball, could generate a championship run that attracted fans and money. Now imagine five or 10 or 20—or a few dozen. That could quickly propel a few black schools into the athletic empyrean, and change the place of HBCUs in American culture,” she writes.

A few dozen black athletes – at the most – does not a segregationist movement make. Later in the piece, Hill points to other black Americans who have used their talents to benefit their communities. She brings up people like the recently deceased Nipsey Hussle, who used the fortune he amassed from his rap career to create jobs and rebuild his community.

Here’s the bottom line. I have no problem criticizing Hill and others when they are making dishonest or destructive arguments. Last year I criticized her for lamenting the fact that black men sided with Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh while he was the subject of sexual assault allegations.

But in this case, there was no race-baiting. There were no attacks on Trump. The article is simply about empowering black learning institutions using the free market. At no point does she imply that the government must give more than the $680 million that Trump already approved.

So was Hill’s piece as egregious as it has been portrayed? It appears not, and it does not seem that reacting with outrage benefits the conservative movement. Indeed, the fact that she recommended a free-market solution to a problem she has identified is far more conservative than progressive.

Some have not only taken issue with Hill’s supposed calls for segregation, but also to the existence of black universities in the first place. After all, there are no “historically white colleges and universities,” are there? But here’s the thing – HBCU’s were created at a time when blacks were unable to attend the same learning institutions as whites. And now, they are a part of American history. Just as many of us oppose the removal of Democratic Civil War statues as a way to preserve history, there is nothing wrong with supporting these schools, in my estimation. Besides, many colleges are already predominantly white

Another aspect of this story that I found odd was the push to defend universities that are not historically black in the name of “desegregation.” As stated previously, Hill never argued for segregation. But why would we defend the same schools that mock us, ridicule us, and bar our speakers from giving speeches? Are we really going to sympathize with institutions that compare us to Nazis?  I don’t mind if they lose a few high-profile athletes to HBCU’s.

Stories like this inevitably generate anger, which is why they get so many clicks and shares. We all fall for it at one point or another. But we must ensure we are attacking arguments that the left is actually making instead of immediately jumping to an erroneous conclusion.

Climate Change Hysteria and the Democrats

=========
=========
Promoted from the diaries by streiff. Promotion does not imply endorsement.
=========
=========

September 11th is considered the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season which can mean only one thing: climate change hysteria.  Over the past 2-3 weeks, a confluence of events pushed the issue into the news.  Hysterical stories about the Amazon ablaze were soon replaced by stories about the impending landfall of Hurricane Dorian.  This was accompanied by a side trip down the rabbit hole about a “doctored” map of the hurricane’s path by President Trump.  And finally, we had the 7-hour CNN snore-fest dedicated to climate change where ten Democrat hopefuls got to air their views on the subject.

Against the backdrop of reality, this is how “the most trusted name in news,” CNN, described the event which played to ratings lower than those of the Hallmark Channel:

We watched the participants for seven hours straight put forth the most ambitious climate plans we have seen in a generation.  At a deeper level, we witnessed the rebirth of a positive, creative, and powerful environmentalism for the Democratic Party — one rooted in the lives, values, and needs of millions of ordinary people impacted by climate change who want a better future.

Indeed, we did and there is the biggest problem for the Democrats if they wish to make climate change, or as CNN now likes to describe it, “climate crisis,” a major issue come 2020.  We can forget about those fires in the Amazon for now because they are yesterday’s news.  The hurricane season is the focus of interest now and the climate crisis hysterics will be all over it until they discover a famine or flood somewhere else to justify their hysteria.  After all, fall and then winter is approaching, so extreme cold in some parts of the country will be blamed on climate change.

But what about those hurricanes which, incidentally have apparently been happening for centuries in the Atlantic basin absent manmade carbon dioxide emissions?  Using “science,” which was a big loser in the CNN extravaganza, we learn that over the past century, the average temperature of the ocean has increased about one degree Fahrenheit.  Hurricanes form over warm water and it stands to reason that the warmer the water, the more hurricanes will be formed and that they will be more intense.  That is basic science, but even basic science has its flaws.  For example, despite these increases (very small) in ocean temperatures, we discover that the number of hurricanes and their intensity are actually rather stable over time.

What makes a hurricane “intense” is its destructiveness.  “Intense” is defined as a Category 4 or 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale.  Since accurate records were kept, we discover that the number of Category 4 or 5 hurricanes is also stable over time, averaging about 2 per season.  Of course, if you keep putting buildings and people in the path of a hurricane, the greater the destructiveness.  Most hysterics point to Hurricane Katrina as the prime example of a destructive hurricane.  But, when you adjust the cost for inflation and control for population, the 1900 Galveston hurricane and 1926 Miami hurricane were actually worse than Katrina.  And, interestingly, the oceans were, on average, at least one degree Fahrenheit cooler then.

Using storms, wildfires, tornados, floods, droughts, etc. is a silly exercise.  These phenomena have been occurring for eons.  Suddenly, they are a “crisis” worthy of a seven-hour CNN special because…well, CNN says it is a crisis.  And any good socialist will tell you never to let a crisis go to waste.  Enter ten Democrats hoping to become your next president come 2021.

What we witnessed was a socialist’s wettest of wet dreams using what amounts to weather events as a conduit to transform America.  First, absent dictatorial powers, none of what they propose will ever come to pass.  Second, nowhere in seven hours and among ten people did anyone explain how their dreams would be paid for.  The closest anyone comes is with a carbon tax on the fossil fuel industry.  Then again, you also have candidates proposing suing companies like ExxonMobil (Harris) and some even suggesting incarceration.  If taken to their natural conclusion, these Democrat dreams would cost about $93 trillion.

Unfortunately, since we will have taxed all the millionaires and billionaires in America into poverty through taxes to fund Medicare For All and free college tuition, that leaves precious few dollars left for these proposals.

This writer does not believe that there are many conservatives opposed to renewable energy sources like wind or solar energy.  We are more realistic in that we know that even if we plastered every available square inch of America with solar panels we likely would not have enough energy produced to maintain our standard of living.  What we do or should oppose is these unreliable sources of energy being subsidized by the government and forced down our collective throats, especially when there are two very viable options that decrease the emissions of greenhouse gases.

The first is natural gas of which the United States has an abundant source.  That abundant source is attainable through the use of fracking.  However, every crackpot running as a Democrat seems opposed to fracking.  The second “solution” is nuclear energy which, again, every crackpot has voiced their opposition.  Ironically, one of the greatest environmentalists of all time, James Lovelock who is the “founder” of the Gaia hypothesis and no climate change skeptic or denier has endorsed nuclear energy as a viable source to decrease greenhouse gas emissions.

There was lots of talk about electric cars, but even that discussion missed the point that something has to produce the electricity to charge the electric car.  Unless the car is running on solar panels- which would preclude driving on a cloudy day- it ain’t happening!  And what would a climate crisis be without some good old fashioned charges of racism, or as they like to phrase it, “environmental justice.”  Cory Booker said these proposals would bring healthier food to urban neighborhoods as if anything, other than the personal preferences of those inhabiting urban neighborhoods, is preventing the introduction of healthier foods.  Biden talked about investment in mass transit to take cars off the road (one supposes these will be high-speed solar panel-driven trains).  Buttigieg gave a lecture on redlining in zoning laws as if that has something to do with climate change.

But now comes the political reality.  It is one thing to spend seven hours on CNN talking about climate change, making silly unrealistic proposals and laying out your latest Utopian dream.  It is quite another to actually implement these proposals and then another to convince a vast majority of Americans more concerned with the price of gas, their preferred mode of transportation, and their heating bill in the winter because…yes, it will be cold in the winter.  All the solutions proffered over those seven hours are expensive proposals that will not only affect this endless supply of millionaires but average Americans.  These are radical solutions being proposed, even by the so-called moderate, Joe Biden.

One fact to consider is that there are real tensions within the Democrat Party over this issue.  There is rancor between the so-called moderates and the more Leftist factions, between Congressional leaders and the environmental insurgents, between labor and the green groups, and so on.  At this point, many have adopted the stance that any deviation from the Green New Deal’s purism is nothing short of shameful inaction.

Is it any wonder that the head of the DNC, Thomas Perez, was against climate change as a major issue in 2020?  Perhaps next they will hold a town hall on the vegan lifestyle.

There has been a kerfuffle about CNN’s coverage of President Trump during Hurricane Dorian, the hellstorm that destroyed Central Florida and laid waste to Mar-A-Lago. The gist of it is that at one time the National Weather Service issued a forecast saying that Alabama around the time the NWS changed the forecast, Trump mentioned the Alabama forecast. CNN pounced…because their entire business model is built on being reflexively anti-Trump and OrangeManStupid is second only to OrangeManBad in that repertoire of hot takes. Yesterday, SisterToldjah did a run down of events focusing on a White House video showing CNN, itself, making the Alabama forecast Watch: Trump Tweets Video of CNN Saying Alabama Was Under Threat From Dorian After CNN Said They Never Were.

Late yesterday, President Trump was active on Twtter again

More accurately, though, the cat isn’t just CNN, it is actually all of the mainstream media, but CNN is such a big, fat, stupid, predictable, and slow-moving target that it is hard to resist using them as a foil if for no other reason than to hear their little high pitched squeaks of outrage

and to give the @KFile guy someone new to dox

The More the Democrats Talk, the More Likely They Are to Lose

Thanks to exploiting of new resources like oil shale and technologies like hydraulic fracturing, the United States is now the largest producer of both petroleum and natural gas in the world.

Oil and natural gas production in the U.S. is indeed soaring. According to the latest Energy Information Administration report, U.S. crude oil production stands at 11.9 million barrels per day. That’s just shy of 24 percent more than the 1970 peak of 9.6 million barrels per day. So much for Hubbert’s Peak!

And the U.S. is certainly number one: Saudi Arabia and Russia produce about 10.8 and 11 million barrels per day, respectively.

The U.S. is also now the world’s biggest producer of natural gas, at about 853 billion cubic meters in the last 12 months. The next biggest producers in 2017 were Russia and Iran at 694 and 209 billion cubic meters correspondingly.

The United States is now a net energy exporter, to the benefit of our economy. No longer are Americans exporting their dollars to OPEC nations, but are bringing in money from overseas. At a time when we are buying so many imported goods, it’s good to have at least some export market.

But Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) wants to change that!

I get it: the Democrats are all in on fighting global warming climate change, and they’ve made some campaign promises which amount to pie-in-the-sky

Warren sought to pick up the baton of climate leadership from Washington Gov. Jay Inslee after he ended his climate-focused run for president. She met privately with him and then adopted his aggressive multi-part action proposal. She has challenged all of the presidential candidates to make the same commitment to 100 percent clean energy, buildings and transportation. Warren’s plan calls for all new buildings to be zero-emissions by 2028, all electricity to be carbon-neutral by 2030, and all new passenger cars, trucks and buses to be zero emissions by 2030.

Even if Mrs Warren were able to achieve this — and she can’t, even if she were elected Dictator — banning hydraulic fracturing “on (her) first day as president” would mean a significant drop in American natural gas production. That would result in two things:

  1. As production dropped, the demand for natural gas being somewhat inelastic — something a senator representing a New England state ought to know — the price must increase, and the United States will need to import more natural gas to keep people’s homes heated. Remember: the presidential inauguration occurs in the coldest month of the year in the US.
  2. Natural gas replaced coal as the primary source of fuel for electric power plants, in part because ‘fracking’ made natural gas cheaper. As the price increases, many power companies will consider switching back to coal, the price of which is depressed, to reduce costs. Coal burns dirtier than natural gas.

Mrs Warren, an attorney masquerading as an economist, ought to be smart enough to understand this. Her presidency, if we are to believe what she has said, would lead to Americans not only having to pay more to heat their homes, but have more of their dollars sent outside of our economy, to enrich other nations while costing some Americans their jobs. Either she is lying to us, or she’s just too dumb to be president.

Add to that the fact that Mrs Warren wants to end electricity generation by nuclear power plants.² In 2018, natural gas had the largest share of electric power generation, at 35.1%, while 27.4% was generated by burning coal. That, alone, is 62.5% of total electricity generation in this country, with petroleum and other gases adding another 0.9%. Nuclear power generation, which is another bugaboo of the left, added 19.3%. Total renewable energy production was 17.1%, roughly 1/6 of the total.

As biased as CNN is, the third-ranked cable news network did Americans a huge favor. The Democratic National Committee did not want one of the debates focused on climate change, because they knew that it would push the candidates to do something really radical, and that is tell (some of) the truth about their climate change plans. When CNN pushed it, we had the spectacle of the candidates telling us that they were going to stick their noses into what we put on our dinner tables, by saying we couldn’t eat as much meat, ban plastic straws and we’d all have to buy electric cars. Salon’s Sophia Tesfaye said, “More like this, please,” and I most certainly agree: I want the Democrats to keep telling the American people how much they plan on controlling every little aspect of their lives, because I want to see the Democrats lose. The more they keep talking, the more likely that is.

LA Gubernatorial Candidate Tells Supporters There Are Only Two Genders; Here’s What MSNBC Anchor Told Viewers

Westlake Legal Group LGBT-Transgender-pronouns-300x200 LA Gubernatorial Candidate Tells Supporters There Are Only Two Genders; Here’s What MSNBC Anchor Told Viewers Two genders Social Justice Rep. Ralph Abraham progressives Popular Culture political correctness Liberal Elitism LGBT Gender Issues Front Page Stories Featured Story Chris Jansing Allow Media Exception 2020

 

Louisiana gubernatorial primary candidate, medical doctor and current U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham (R), released a new campaign ad in which he said there are only two genders.

Abraham tells supporters, “Here’s the truth. Life begins at conception. Government is too big. Our taxes are too high. And our car insurance is too expensive. President Trump is doing a great job. Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders.”

It’s no surprise his assertion that there are only two genders did not go over well with our friends on the left. MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing addressed this topic during a panel discussion about the GOP’s relationship with women and the LGBT community. (Specifically, a national LGBT group, the Log Cabin Republicans, had just endorsed Trump for a second term.)

An indignant Jansing told viewers she found Abraham’s remarks to be “incendiary.” Here’s what she had to say. (video below)

We’ve got an important question now. What does it mean to be a mainstream Republican? It is the question that some Republicans have been asking in the age of Donald Trump, and increasingly, it seems the answer might be to make incendiary comments about women and members of the LGBT community.

In Louisiana, the Republican candidate for governor, Ralph Abraham, is out with a new TV ad this week making incendiary comments about gender.

Yes, it’s now become “incendiary” to say there are only two genders. For eons, there were two genders. Now that some far left activist conceived of the notion that there exists not two, but many genders, the world is expected to comply.

I searched the internet to find out just how many genders there are and was surprised to discover that the answers varied greatly. At the end of 2017, for example, I found estimates ranging from 63 to 81. One 2018 article tagged the number at 123. In 2019, however, those in the know, have simplified things for us, and explain that there exists a “spectrum” of genders.

There’s only one good answer to the question of how many genders there are: Gender is a spectrum, and there are as many gender definitions as there needs to for every person to have a label that feels true to themselves.

Can you imagine anything worse than being “misgendered”?

Watch the video.

Antifa Lunges for Idiot Supremacy – Interrupts an ‘Ending Racism’ Event and Calls a Black Man a White Racist

Westlake Legal Group grass-road-field-farm-camera-meadow-586228-pxhere.com_-620x413 Antifa Lunges for Idiot Supremacy – Interrupts an ‘Ending Racism’ Event and Calls a Black Man a White Racist Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

In life, you can make sense.

Or, you can put on a mask, run around and hurt people and break things, use words you can’t define, and make statements that are stunningly daft.

Sophie’s choice.

For 40 folks in Pennsylvania, the superior option was obvious.

Daryl Davis — a black man who’s worked to rehabilitate members of white supremacist groups — was speaking at an “Ending Racism” event which was meant to “create dialogue and promote viewpoint diversity.”

Sound okay?

Not to over three dozen protestors: They were there to — among other things — call Daryl a “white supremacist.”

I’ll say that again: As reported by The Daily Caller, 40 members of Antifa showed up to protest an Ending Racism event and call a black man — upon whom, according to his website, was conferred the Bridge Builder Award — a white supremacist.

Some Antifa members called Davis, who is black, a white supremacist for attending the event.

Actually, maybe it does make sense: Perhaps Antifa understands the English language to work in opposites — after all, it’s a pro-fascism organization which, for some reason unknown, calls itself “anti-fa…”

Therefore, perhaps they took “Ending Racism” to be “Starting Racism.” And they meant to let black person Daryl know he’s not a racist white person.

In that case, please allow me to say: Antifa is a group of geniuses.

They are in no way morons.

Now back to language the normal way–

Here’s what Daryl told the Daily Caller News Foundation:

“I laughed. I thought it was funny. What it proves is they had no point. They had no evidence of anything. When it boils down to just name-calling people, and you don’t show any proof and you refuse to talk to them…they refused to even come in. There were no Klansman or Neo-Nazis in there or alt-right people.”

Antifa was welcomed to the afterparty, but they were party poopers.

Westlake Legal Group 1f641 Antifa Lunges for Idiot Supremacy – Interrupts an ‘Ending Racism’ Event and Calls a Black Man a White Racist Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

Daryl expounded:

“They [Antifa] want to shut down any dialogue with racists, people who have differing views of their own. Their thing is, you know, just beat it out of them or make it impossible for them to meet.

“A lot of these groups – let’s take Black Lives Matter, let’s take Antifa, let’s take the Ku Klux Klan – none of these groups today are centralized. They’re all autonomous … It’s the same thing with Antifa.

“Half of them may believe (in) what they’re doing…they may believe that they’re doing some good. But I truly believe that the other half of them are simply into anarchy … They’re anti-racist, so they’re gonna go beat up people who are racist – but this is the exact same thing the racists do. They’re not behaving any differently.”

On Facebook, the black Caucasian who hates himself and others (not) like him noted that he’d been called lots of names before, but “white supremacist” takes the cake.

And in case you’re wondering why the “#MINDS New Jersey: Ending Racism, Violence and Authoritarianism” event was held at a center in Pennsylvania: It was originally planned for a theater in New Jersey.

But Anti-fascism threatened to burn it down.

Way to go, everybody.

Stellar work.

Man Calls Trump a Slur, Here’s How Kamala Harris Responded to Him

Westlake Legal Group Kamala-Harris-TH-620x317 Man Calls Trump a Slur, Here’s How Kamala Harris Responded to Him slur Politics Mentally Retarded media bias lying kamala harris Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Election donald trump democrats CBS campaign 2020

Kamala Harris has stepped in it again.

Fresh off letting you know she wants to control every aspect of your life at CNN’s climate change town hall, Harris hit the campaign trail again. She’s currently languishing in a distant fourth place in the Democrat primary and needs any boost she can get. While in New Hampshire, she took a comment from man ranting about impeachment.

Then things escalated.

“I don’t buy that argument that impeachment does not make sense; the Senate will acquit. I don’t buy that argument. There needs to be accountability. What are you going to do in the next one year to diminish the mentally retarded actions of this guy,” said the man, as some in the audience chuckled.

“Well said,” Harris responded. “Well said.”

“I plan to win this election, I’ll tell you that.”

Harris’ reaction didn’t sit well with with even some liberals, who see using the phrase “mentally retarded” as highly offensive. Worse, Harris then decided the best response to to lie and say she didn’t hear the man.

If you watch this video, this isn’t just improbable, but impossible. She heard it, no question.

Of course, the media are buying her story because that’s what they did. Get a load of this headline.

She also laughed and said “well said,” but I guess that context wasn’t important to CBS. It must be really nice to be a Democrat politician. Not only can you get away with anything, but the media will go out of their way to present you as “above the fray.”

The simple fact is that Harris is just bad at this. I haven’t bought into her campaign from day one. Even after everyone was on her bandwagon after the first debate, I wrote an article here opining she was a sucker’s bet. She’s just a terrible, inauthentic candidate. Way too many people bought into the idea that because she’s black and a woman, that she was going to rocket to the top.

It hasn’t happened and it’s not going to.

On Friday, Pete Buttigieg’s minister brother-in-law told the Washington Examiner the 2020 hopeful has a need: According to Pastor Ryan Glezman, the Southbend, Indiana mayor’s obligated to “repent” for his recent misuse of the Good Book.

Particularly egregious: his employment of the Bible to support abortion.

And Ryan believes it’s deliberate.

During a Friday morning interview with top-rated Urban morning radio program The Breakfast Club — during which he claimed he’s the only candidate with a “true black agenda” (*gargantuan wince*) — Pete explained that scripture and abortion are copacetic:

“[Pro-life Christians] hold everybody in line with this one kind of piece of doctrine about abortion, which is obviously a tough issue for a lot of people to think through morally. Then again, there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath, and so even that is something that we can interpret differently.”

So abortion up ’til birth?

“Most Americans can get on board with the idea of, ‘I might draw the line here. You might draw the line there,’ but the most important thing is the person who should be drawing the line is the woman who is making the decision.”

Pastor Ryan believes Pete is desperate to appeal to Christians but also going along to get along with left-turning Dems:

“[It’s] to seem appealing to the evangelical community. … I think he’s just going along with the agenda of the Democratic Party: that if you want to be a Democrat, you have to be pro-choice.”

The clergyman made the connection to those Jesus rebuked:

“What we see is a modern-day Pharisee. … Buttigieg is a person who’s making up their own rules and regulations  and, basically, if we don’t celebrate and endorse their interpretation of Scripture, our religion is fallible. And that’s just not true.”

And it’s Ryan’s conviction to stand up — for his faith and, subsequently, for the precious nature of life:

“I feel a sense of responsibility and stewardship of my faith to stand up and say something, to say, ‘No, that’s not true.’ God places a very high value on all human life. Everyone is created fearfully and wonderfully in the image of God with intrinsic value. That doesn’t start at the first breath, it starts when we enter our mother’s womb.”

As for Pete’s “true black agenda,” he may not make it to the White House in order to employ such a plan — after all, he’s the guy Black Lives Matters traveled across the country to stop.

Joe Biden Rats Out Hillary: He Told Her How to Handle the ‘Access Hollywood’ Thing, but She Ignored Him

Westlake Legal Group adorable-1868563_1280-620x413 Joe Biden Rats Out Hillary: He Told Her How to Handle the ‘Access Hollywood’ Thing, but She Ignored Him Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

On Friday, former VP Joe Biden told a New Hampshire rally audience that Hillary Clinton fouled up in 2016 by remarking upon then-candidate Donald Trump’s Access Hollywood hubbub.

Just days after the tape was released, Hillary had her 2nd debate against New York’s famed eccentric billionaire. And Clinton was aimin’ to take that tape and play it all the way to victory.

But according to Obama’s right-hand man, Joe told Hil not to bite.

The Washington Examiner relayed Biden’s claims of political perceptiveness:

“I remember at the time saying, you know, the first question that’s going to be asked is they’re going to ask [Trump] about his comments about the Access Hollywood tape.

“And I said, I really think what should be done is — that they’re going to turn to [Clinton] and say, ‘What’s your view?’ And I said I’d respectfully recommend she stand there and…say, ‘Everybody knows who Donald Trump is. Let me tell you what I am going to do for the country,’ and not get into the debate, because it just drags it down.”

That was probably good advice — after all, we’re talking about the Teflon Don(ald).

And Hillary had an uphill trek in order to reach the White House, due to a decades-long history of scandal.

Not to mention husband Bill’s well-known penchant for the ladeeez — less than strong ground from which to condemn Trump.

Joe also pointed to a Harvard study indicating candidates fare better when they stick to “comfortable” subject matter.

Brian Fallon — Hillary’s former senior aide — disagrees with ol’ Joe.

He commented on the pulpit posits to BuzzFeed:

“Is he suggesting Hillary’s reaction to the Access Hollywood tape should have been, ‘Oh, nevermind? That is a pretty Mad Men-era mentality.”

As noted by The Daily Caller, Hillary’s more Team Brian.

She made that clear at April’s Women in the World Summit:

“You do have to present what you want to do – what is your vision? At the same time, you must be able to counter and ignore where possible, respond where necessary, to the diversion and distraction that we see, unfortunately, working by the current incumbent in the White House.”

Bronx Residents Assault Police Officers For Helping Put Out a Fire

Westlake Legal Group street-car-night-driving-city-urban-569308-pxhere.com_-620x414 Bronx Residents Assault Police Officers For Helping Put Out a Fire rhetoric Politics Police Officers police New York milk Front Page Stories Front Page firefighters fire fight Featured Story democrats dangerous Bronx assault

Here’s another example of why the outrageous, generalized rhetoric against police officers we hear from the left is dangerous.

A fire broke out in a Bronx building last last week, drawing a crowd as firefighters battled the blaze. The police showed up to provide crowd control and multiple assaults took place against the officers.

The local New York media covered in ridiculous fashion, making it seem as if the officers were out for a brawl and were part of the cause. Take this story entitled Fight Breaks Out Between Cops and Residents As Firefighters Battle Bronx Blaze.

You can find the video of the incident at the link above.

Firefighters battling flames inside a Bronx building weren’t the only ones getting hot Tuesday afternoon, as tempers flared between police officers and residents right outside the burning building.

More than 100 firefighters were called to battle the flames shooting out of a sixth floor apartment kitchen near East 171st Street in Grand Concourse. The fire broke out around 4:30 p.m., and neighbors used the fire escape to climb from the smoke-filled units to safety.

Meanwhile, a fiery confrontation was going on outside the building, as tensions rose between heated tenants and police officers called to the scene to help clear the crowds, in order for the firefighters to quickly get in and out of the building.

The fight started as crowds refused to make way as cops demanded they move. Police say a 39-year-old woman ripped an officer’s body camera off and threw it to the ground, while another person threw a carton of milk at the cops before running off.

For the life of me, I don’t get what the point of this is. The officers are there trying to make room for firefighters to save the building these people live in, and they repay that by getting violent. Further, five firefighters were injured trying to serve these people.

Something has to change with how police are treated in this country. The vast majority are underpaid public servants just trying to do a tough job. You will always be able to find bad apples in any profession. That’s not a reason to spread overwrought, false propaganda against cops that leads to this kind of nonsense happening. You probably won’t see Bill de Blasio or anyone from New York City’s government push back on this because they are essentially complicit at this point, never missing a chance to undermine police.

The behavior exhibited by these Bronx residents would have caused a lot of people to throw their hands up and leave them to fight the fire themselves. They are lucky that firefighters and law enforcement abide by a code of duty that requires them to help even those who don’t deserve it.
