I suppose it was to be expected. After all, President Trump had ventured right into the heart of enemy territory.

On Sunday night, the President and First Lady Melania Trump attended Game 5 of the World Series between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros at Nationals Park.                        .

When an image of Trump’s box flashed up on the video screen, fans broke into a full-throated round of boos, and followed with a chant of “Lock Him Up.”

It was a pathetic display, and a total disgrace.

WUSA9 reported that the Lerner family, the principal owners of the Nationals, concerned about being put into the position of having to decline an invitation to join the President, called on MLB last week to intervene. Classy.

According to Fox News, Jim Crane, the owner of the Astros, stopped by Trump’s box to greet the President and First Lady.

Trump did not throw the ceremonial first pitch, as that honor had already been bestowed upon a local chef before the President decided to attend the game. After witnessing the crowd’s reaction to the mere sight of him on the video screen, I’d say that was a good thing.

Go Astros!

Baghdadi Raid Was Dedicated to Kayla Mueller, Her Family Praised Trump, Troops

Americans today are cheering the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

But there’s a group of Americans to whom the operation has special meaning and maybe a small measure of justice.

That’s the families whose loved ones were taken from them by the terrorist group.

One of those families was the family of Kayla Mueller.

Kayla Mueller was an aid worker, trying to help dispossessed families in the region when she was kidnapped by ISIS in 2013. She was tortured, kept as a slave and raped repeatedly by Baghdadi himself. But despite the horrible things she endured, she helped and inspired other captives, even refusing to give up her Christian faith and defending it to the infamous ISIS executioner, Jihadi John, according to ABC.

One fellow captive described how the ISIS execution claimed that Mueller had converted to try to break their will. But she defied him to his face in front of the other captives, saying no, she had not given up her faith.

When one of her fellow captives was planning to escape, a young teenaged Yazidi girl, she begged Kayla to go with her. But Kayla knew that if she did, ISIS would bring all forces to bear to find her and decrease the young girl’s chance of escaping. So she sacrificed her chance to escape to better the girl’s odds of getting away.

She is believed to have been killed during U.S. airstrikes on the terrorist lair in 2015. But her body has never been recovered and her parents are still seeking details.

Mueller’s parents have said they believe the Obama administration blocked their efforts to ransom their daughter, as other captives had been freed. They even reported being threatened by the Obama administration with criminal prosecution if they tried to raise ransom money. Obama also promised to donate to the foundation they set up in the name of their daughter, a promise he had not kept more than a year later, according to them.

Mueller’s father told the Daily Caller earlier this year he believed that had Trump been president when his daughter was taken, that she would be home.

White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien said the operation to get Baghdadi had been named after Kayla Mueller. “The chairman of the joint chiefs of staff named the operation that took down al-Baghdadi after Kayla Mueller, after what she had suffered,” he said, “That was something that people should know.”

On Sunday, the Muellers said they were deeply touched by the mention of their daughter and praised President Donald Trump and the soldiers who pulled off the mission.

From Arizona Central:

“We are so grateful for them … we are so grateful,” Marsha Mueller said. They were glad there was no loss of life on our side. They are grateful their daughter and the others who were tortured and killed by ISIS have not been forgotten.

“I still say Kayla should be here, and if Obama had been as decisive as President Trump, maybe she would have been,” Marsha Mueller said.

“For me what matters most I’m hoping now we will finally get the answers we have been asking for all along,” Marsha Mueller said. “I think this administration truly might help us. I don’t think they are as closed about what happened.”

Carl Mueller said he was comforted when Trump mentioned his daughter twice in his morning press conference.

“He knows her story. He’s been briefed on it, and he knows, and that’s important to me,” Carl Mueller said. “I don’t think anything would have stopped him from getting this guy.”

SJW Wreaks so Much Woke Havoc in the Classroom, Cornell Ejects Her from the Science Program. Now Everyone Can Learn Again

Westlake Legal Group horses-1348383_1280-620x350 SJW Wreaks so Much Woke Havoc in the Classroom, Cornell Ejects Her from the Science Program. Now Everyone Can Learn Again Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

Reportedly, a student at Cornell University social-justiced their way right out of school.

Or, at least, out of a school program.

They were such an annoyance, the college gave them the boot — from the Alliance for Science fellowship.

Julia Feliz — who prefers the pronouns “they” and “them” — would (and remember, all of this is alleged) constantly relate every cotton-picking thing in every cotton-picking discussion in every cotton-picking class to social justice issues.

In fact, I think I just transgressed, with “cotton-picking.”

This took time time away from everybody actually learning stuff.

Apparently, she isn’t white, and now she’s calling the school “racist,” even though complaints emanated from non-white students as well.

According to Cornell, the science program aims to address “the ways in which individuals and groups define mathematical knowledge so as to see ‘Western’ mathematics as the only legitimate expression of mathematical identity and intelligence. This definition of legitimacy is then used to disenfranchise people and communities of color. This erases the historical contributions of people and communities of color.”

Oh, sorry — that’s from the Seattle public school system’s Math Ethnic Studies program (here).

Let’s see…Cornell…Cornell…ah — here it is:

To “equip and empower emerging international leaders who are committed to advocating for science-based communications and access to scientific innovation in their home countries.”

But Julia, it seems, had some additional objectives.

As reported by The College Fix, she “accused a visiting professor from Iowa State of using ‘racist and sexist terminology’ and of ‘[speaking] loudly and walk[ing] towards them to intimidate them’ after they asked a question.”

As for white racism, 27 of the 31 students let into the program this semester weren’t Caucasian.

And here’s what the school had to say about Julia’s — aka “Mx. Feliz’s” — charges and trajectory, served up in a statement by Senior Direct of Media Relations and News John Carberry:

It is accurate that Mx. Feliz was asked to leave the 2019 Fellows program. This decision was not taken lightly. This was made after Mx. Feliz engaged in behavior that caused numerous and repeated complaints from other fellows over many weeks. It became clear that the educational experience of other fellows was being compromised due to ongoing interruptions of classroom lectures and discussions by Mx. Feliz. Cornell staff made many attempts to support and work with Mx. Feliz, including referrals to appropriate university offices to explore Mx. Feliz’s allegations of discrimination in the program; however, Mx. Feliz chose not to take advantage of independent university support programs, instead raising Mx. Feliz’s concerns within the classroom, leading to additional complaints from other fellows. Program leadership ultimately determined with sincere regret that Mx. Feliz was not benefitting from the program and that Mx. Feliz’s continued presence was depriving other fellows of their opportunity to benefit from the program.

We’re living in strange times. And given all the cultivation of social justice mania — including within the educational system — it’s no wonder someone like Julia could manage such a footshot.

We’re probably headed for more of the same, unless and until schools turn back to teaching the science of not being goofy.

First Trump Gets Baghdadi, Now He Gets ISIS Spokesperson, Baghdadi’s Right Hand Man

Westlake Legal Group Donald-Trump-thumbs-up First Trump Gets Baghdadi, Now He Gets ISIS Spokesperson, Baghdadi’s Right Hand Man Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump Allow Media Exception

All the time that Democrats have been hitting President Donald Trump for his moves in Syria, as the news today demonstrates, while he may have moved 50 troop members, he still had a lot of action happening.

Not only did the Trump administration take out the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, yesterday, in an operation that had been in the works and planning for weeks, but they also took out his righthand man and spokesperson, Abu al-Hassan al-Muhajir, in a different, new operation today.

Muhajir was taken out by Hellfire missile near Jarablus in Aleppo province according to Syrian Democratic Forces commander Mazloum Abdi.

Interesting that the Trump administration got them as they were trying to move into the Turkish-controlled area.

Muhajir has been the spokesperson since 2016 when his predecessor was also taken out by a U.S. airstrike. As Newsweek observed, Muhajir’s origins were not known, his nickname meaning “emigrant” indicated he might be a foreigner, not Syrian or Iraqi.

During his remarks Sunday, Trump said he did not inform Russia and Turkey of the operation’s details ahead of time, but sought their cooperation over airspace, and then thanked them for their cooperation.

Kobane referred to the raid that ended in the death of Baghdadi as a “Successful& historical operation due to a joint intelligence work with the United States of America.” Trump also expressed gratitude Syrian Kurds, noting they provided “useful” information, while Iraq appears to have played a major role in intelligence-gathering in the leadup to the operation.

Two huge decapitation strikes to what remains of ISIS.

And great wins for the United States.

Twitter Lampoons WaPo’s Absurd Characterization of ISIS Leader Abu with Hilarious Submissions for #WaPoDeathNotices

As covered earlier by RedState’s cool Elizabeth Vaughn, The Washington Post noted the passing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi by calling him an “austere religious scholar.”

That was after the initial label of the “Islamic State’s terrorist-in-chief” was lamented by communications manager Kristine Coratti Kelly:

Nice save.

The internet wasn’t impressed, and Twitterers rose to the occasion with their own sarcastic tributes to the tune of the #5 hashtag: #WaPoDeathNotices.

Some of the submissions are pretty hilarious.

Here’s one for the austere cannibal, Jeffrey:

And one for all you Wicked fans:

And of course:

More:

And there was this:

WaPo eventually settled on the description, “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, extremist leader of Islamic State.”

If you’re wondering, he went to Paradise by detonating his suicide vest.

He took three of his children with him.

As for the hashtag, I’m sure you have your own contributions.

And I look forward to reading them in the Comments section.

Rand Paul Asks a Great Question: Why isn’t the Media Calling Out AOC and Uncle Bernie for Championing the Systems of MAO and Stalin?

Westlake Legal Group rand-paul-AP-620x413 Rand Paul Asks a Great Question: Why isn’t the Media Calling Out AOC and Uncle Bernie for Championing the Systems of MAO and Stalin? Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., speaks during an event at the University of Chicago’s Ida Noyes Hall in Chicago on Tuesday, April 22, 2014. (AP Photo/Andrew A. Nelles)

 

 

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul bounced onto C-SPAN’s After Words Sunday to make a sustantial point.

During a really, really long interview by guest host and Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (here and here), Rand brought up the serious danger of ideas being promoted by Uncle Bernie Sanders and everyone’s favorite congressional freshman fartfighter, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Matt questioned the senator about some politicians “champion[ing]” country-turned-chaos Venezuela, and here’s what he had to say:

“Venezuela is just such a disaster. I mean, people literally eating their pets. We tell the story of a young lady who was a teenage girl, and she has a gang, but her gang is to defend the turf of trash. So, there’s certain garbage receptacles and she keeps people out of them because those are her garbage receptacles to look for food. How sad. People killing rats in the street to try to eat them, pigeons, and it just, it really is a sad thing.”

I’m sure there are lots of bad stories. As for calamity, here’s a peek into a peak:

Thanks To Left-Loved Socialism, Venezuela Sees Children Selling Sex & Straight Men Selling Gay Sex.”

And yet, we still had this in August:

A Group Of Chicago Teachers Union Members Travels To Venezuela & Reports The Shocking Findings: It’s Fantastic!

More from Rand:

“Kind of going back to the world economy thing, we have to understand why the world economy got better, and we have to understand why Venezuela’s deteriorating into, you know, chaos – and that’s, I think, part of what the book is doing – it’s part of also the debate we should be having up here, and we don’t seem to have it in Congress, is that we don’t develop, we aren’t really talking about which economic system is better.”

I’ll go further than that: It seems to me we don’t even have people understanding what the economic systems are.

How many people touting socialism know it’s a monopolistic system in which they can’t own their own business?

And that capitalism simply means a free-economy setup in which they can?

Whatever people do or don’t realize, Rand’s surprised the media doesn’t care:

“And nobody in the media seems to care that what AOC is supporting or what Bernie is supporting is Stalin and Mao and Pol Pot, and all these terrible ideas, and they get away with it because they aren’t challenged.”

It’s a good question: Why isn’t more being said about the oppressive countries where such policies have been put into place.

As for leaders, Stalin and MAO are good ones; there’s also those dapper dudes in suits known as Nazis. Or, National Socialists.

As noted by The Daily Wire, Rand didn’t have the most receptive audience on October 11th when he tried to preach the anti-socialism gospel to The View. Guest host Ana Navarro wasn’t into it:

NAVARRO: Let me ask you this because I live in Miami, there’s tens of thousands of Venezuelan exiles living there. You talk a lot about Venezuela in your new book. I get a lot of political ads from the Republican Party – Donald Trump has tweeted this, many have tweeted this – “If you vote for Democrats, they will turn the United States into Venezuela.” Do you think that’s a fair statement to make?

PAUL: Well, if you vote for a socialist, you might get socialism.

NAVARRO: Come on. Don’t do that. Maduro is not a socialist; he’s a corrupt, murderous thug who is starving his people.

PAUL: That’s not true.

NAVARRO: That’s not true? Maduro’s not a thug and a murderer who’s starving his people?

PAUL: Let’s have a conversation here. Chavez was a socialist, and socialism was the economic system Venezuela –

NAVARRO: And they stole. [It’s a] kleptocracy. It’s not socialism.

PAUL: But here’s the question … they voted for socialism.

Venezuelan expat told TDW Ana needs to get right with it:

“Ana Navarro is wrong to say Maduro isn’t socialist. Nicolás Maduro and his predecessor, Hugo Chavez, nationalized thousands of companies and greatly expanded welfare programs and government employment. It was as a result of these socialist policies that our economy was destroyed and that today 9 out of every 10 Venezuelans live in poverty and more than four million Venezuelans like myself have been forced to leave our homeland. Corrupt and evil people govern many countries around the world, but these countries don’t see the terrible humanitarian crises that socialist countries like Venezuela and Cuba experience.”

There appears to be a great deal of ignorance of what socialism means, and so people are jonesin’ for it like the pro-alien peeps in a 1962 Twilight Zone episode.

They may believe socialism’s goal is “To Serve Man,” but in reality, we’re headed for indigestion: “It’s a cook book.”

And if we’re not careful, it’ll be Bon Crappétit.

Obama Photographer Suggests Trump Situation Room Photo Not Taken During Baghdadi Raid, Gets Busted by Facts

Screenshot from this video

President Donald Trump announced the great news today that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed by U.S. Special Forces.

But some people just couldn’t say, “Great work” and celebrate the death of the world’s #1 terrorist.

Pete Souza is the former White House photographer for Barack Obama.

He has made it no secret that he dislikes President Donald Trump and has taken shots at him in the past.

But he sent out a fake news tweet that went everywhere quickly, suggesting that the picture showed Trump wasn’t in the White House when the action taken against Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi took place.

It has 15,000 retweets and over 38,000 likes as of this writing.

Media and Democrats immediately cried conspiracy, as Twitchy notes, spreading it further.

‘Journalists.’

Democratic strategist:

Even Andrew Zimmern retweeted the fake story to his over a million followers.

Of course, Souza was wrong, as he later had to admit, that Trump was back in the White House before the raid and before the picture was taken.

But as with most fake news, you can see it got much less attention than the original false story. And people are still spreading the lie.

And most of the blue checks still have the false story up and haven’t taken it down, much less apologized for spreading the insanity.

BREAKING: Katie Hill to Resign by Week’s End

Following RedState’s series of articles on Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA), Politico is reporting that the freshman from Agua Dulce, CA is resigning.

As RedState reported earlier today, DCCC sources commented off the record early Sunday that the DCCC was looking for a replacement for Hill, and once one was found that Hill would resign. Within the district, the consensus is that the replacement candidate will be Asm. Christy Smith, who just completed her first term representing the area and campaigned with Hill.

In addition, a planned fundraiser featuring Hill scheduled for Nov. 8 was canceled over the weekend.

According to Politico, Hill will resign by the end of the week.

No reason was given for the cancellation, which was to be hosted by Santa Clara County Supervisor Susan Ellenberg and her husband.

The cancellation comes after DCCC insiders told RedState Sunday that the group is quietly seeking a replacement for Hill. Hill is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a congressional staffer.

Katie Hill Paid Alleged (Male) Lover a Campaign Win Bonus; Stiffed Throuple Partner

As a millennial female candidate, Katie Hill made women’s issues and ending the patriarchy a big focus of her campaign.

Her throuple partner, who also served as the Hill campaign’s Operations Director, wrote an essay on Medium addressing the wage gap issue and other issues women face in the workforce (emphasis added):

As a young woman in the workforce, I have faced many challenges. Being taken as seriously as my male counterparts, not being heard in meetings, harassment.

One of the reasons I work with Katie Hill, and why as a resident of the 25th District, I am so excited to vote for her in June, is because I know Katie will make tackling these issues a top priority. Katie cares about women and families, has experience working with people in poverty to provide them with the tools they need to succeed, and perhaps most importantly, has the will and the courage to fight for people who for far too long have had their needs go unnoticed. Katie has what it takes to take on the big issues like pay equity, solve the problem at its core, and change lives.

Does she really have “what it takes to take on the big issues like pay equity”? A look at her own pay practices is instructive.

FEC reports reveal that Graham Kelly was paid $5,100 by the campaign in April 2019 as a “2018 election bonus for his services as Finance Director.” Hill paid five staffers bonuses, but Kelly and his then-roommate/campaign manager, Zack Czajkowski, were given the highest bonuses. Deputy campaign manager Benjamin Steinberger was given a $3,600 bonus.

Westlake Legal Group win-bonus-620x315 Katie Hill Paid Alleged (Male) Lover a Campaign Win Bonus; Stiffed Throuple Partner katie hill Graham Kelly Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Post Campaign Finance California Allow Media Exception

Female staffers Kassandra King (Deputy Communications Director)and Hannah Nayowith (Deputy Finance Director), who both went on to work for Hill in Washington D.C., were given the lowest bonuses – $2,700 for King and $3,150 for Nayowith.

Conspicuously absent from the list of staffers receiving 2018 election bonuses from the Hill campaign is Hill’s Operations Director/throuple partner.

Katie “cares about women” yet her top staffers were all men, and they all received significantly larger election bonuses. The woman Hill was sleeping with was completely shafted.

How’s that for wage equality?
