Comments about Trump’s son-in-law getting a car & driver — hard ball is a foul ball

 

Hard ball is a foul ball

Jared Kushner, senior adviser to the President, has a car and driver?  Oh no!

Hard ball is a foul ball.    On his Hardball show of May 30th, Matthews got bent out of shape over the fact that Jared Kushner . . . might have a car and driver take him to work at the White House. After video rolled of Kushner emerging from what is presumably his DC home and getting into an SUV with someone at the wheel, a vexed Matthews said:

Does Kushner have a driver and a car? How does that work? He works in the White House as one of the staffers. Does he get a car and a driver? It looks like some sort of SUV that takes him to work . . . This is pretty high-level stuff here. It looks like he’s some sort of major security official.”

Kushner is a government employee whose official title is “senior adviser to the President.” Guess who held the same position in the Obama administration? Yup: Valerie Jarrett. Jarrett famously received a Secret Service detail and was driven to work by government drivers.

Asylum seeker molests 14 in Austria. Sentence?

     

Austrian justice for molesting women

Welcome to Austrian justice.  

A  25-year-old asylum seeker from Afghanistan has been sentenced to two years in prison for sexually molesting 14 women over a four month period.The Afghan migrant was sentenced in Vienna this week after admitting he had molested over a dozen women between the ages of 18 and 36. He is said to have hung around the Reumannplatz area from November to February in the evenings and at night to find his victims, Die Presse reports.

“I have made mistakes and beg your pardon, I know I am guilty,” the migrant told the court. He is said to have approached his victims from behind and then held them and tried to touch their genitals against their will. In five of the attacks he succeeded in molesting the women and in the other nine cases, the women were able to fight him off.

One victim told the court how the migrant had approached her and grabbed her. She claimed that after she screamed the migrant let her go. She also noted that as a result of the attack she now suffers from panic attacks and is afraid to go out alone at night.

Some of the victims told the court how they fought the man off with kicks to the abdomen and one with pepper spray. The Afghan was eventually caught by police after security camera footage and police surveillance of the area led to his arrest in February.

The 25-year-old said that he had come to Austria to seek asylum from the Taliban in his home country and told the court he had already completed several courses.

Manchester deaths: some say no muslims here – kaboom

  The Labour mayor of Greater Manchester has claimed the suicide bomber who killed 22 was not a Muslim, insisting the “worst thing that can happen” is people blaming Muslims.

Andy Burnham, a former Labour frontbencher who was elected mayor this month, insisted the attack, claimed by Islamic State, had nothing to do with Islam.

“The message that I would want to get over – and this is how the vast majority of people feel – this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim,” he said, speaking to LBC Radio.

“He does not represent the Muslim community. We’ve got to keep that distinction in mind all the time. This was an unspeakable act. The worst thing that can happen is that people use this to blame an entire community, the Muslim community.

“In my view, the man who committed this atrocity no more represents the Muslim community than the individual who murdered my friend Jo Cox represents the white, Christian community.”

Similarly, following the Westminster knife and car attack, Prime Minister Theresa May said the “Islamist” attack on Parliament was not “Islamic”.

Haras Rafiq, the CEO of the anti-extremism Quilliam Foundation, which has advised the Government, accused Mr. Burnham of “basically doing what ISIS is doing”.

He also said “there is no such thing as a lone wolf”, predicting the terrorist was part of a “network”. He claimed “every single jihadist terrorist has been part of the globally inspired Islamist ideology”.

Why Trump went to Saudi Arabia: Pelosi practices her ABCs

 

Why Saudi Arabia visit asks Pelosi

Why Saudi Arabia first? inquires Democrat party leader

Nancy Pelosi.    Pelosi did not like the choice of Saudi Arabia.
 During a press briefing on Thursday, the House Minority Leader criticized the president’s choice of visiting Saudi Arabia first during his inaugural foreign trip.

“I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first. Saudi Arabia!” Pelosi said.

“It wasn’t even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia.”

The Democrat leader contrasted Trump’s visit with George W. Bush first visiting Mexico, and Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama visiting Canada first.

“Our friends and neighbors,” she said. “What was the decision-making process to go to Saudi Arabia first? That is a question that I have,” she said.

If Trump were to begin visiting foreign countries by alphabetical order, he would first visit Afghanistan, followed by Albania, Algeria, Andorra and Angola.

Is Nancy Pelosi really advocating for a Sesame Street strategy to boost foreign relations?

Firenze Sage:  This is the leader of the people  [Democrat Party] who say Trump is incompetent.

Saudi Arabia gives women access to credit — yes! Driving a car – no!

Women in Saudi Arabia still can’t drive — but some will have access to credit, markets and networks.  One million foreign drivers shuttle women around in Saudi Arabia.

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia—The World Bank announced Sunday at an event with Ivanka Trump, the U.S. president’s daughter and senior White House adviser, that Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates have pledged a combined $100 million to a fund that will assist women entrepreneurs and small business owners.

“As a female leader within the Trump administration, my focus is to help empower women in the United States and around the globe,” Ms. Trump said.

The Women Entrepreneurs Fund is currently being formed and will be aimed at helping women in the Middle East by easing their access to finance, markets and networks.

sexism not terrorism caused Manchester UK attack …

sexism — not terrorism — caused Manchester carnage  says Brianna Wu who is running for U.S. Congress

This major league idiot [Brianna Wu]        thinks bombs have eyes.

The horrific terrorist attack in Manchester, UK after an Ariana Grande concert,  left 22 people dead, including an eight-year-old girl, and at least 50 people wounded. It’s the worst terror attack the United Kingdom has experienced since the London July 7 bombings in 2005.
Twelve of the 22 fatalities were under the age of 16. The UK authorities are treating this as a terrorist attack.
The perpetrator of this suicide bombing was 23-year-old Salman Abedi, who detonated his explosive near the box office of the Manchester Arena. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Responses have been that of shock, horror, disgust, and sadness. Social media responses are mostly an outpouring of support, though some have been quite vile. Over here, one Democratic congressional candidate in Massachusetts,

Brianna Wudecided to blame sexism instead of terrorism.

 

“When a man straps on a bomb of nails, goes to woman’s concert to kill an audience of women and girls – IT’S A SAFE BET SEXISM IS INVOLVED.”

— Brianna Wu (@Spacekatgal) May 23, 2017

Firenze Sage:  This candidate cannot tell murder from  political correctness. Let’s hope her constituents can.

 

 Background on Wu:   Wu stated, in a radio interview, that Lynch did not sufficiently represent the Democrats, citing his positions on reproductive health care and LGTB rights. Wu also came out in favor of unions and collective bargaining.[15] Wu feels that Massachusetts proportionally contributes more to the Federal government than it receives in return and wants to use it as leverage in negotiations. She hopes that the Boston Bay area can rival San Francisco Bay as a technology hub.[16] Wu plans to move to the 8th District in order to challenge the incumbent Lynch.[17]

Sikh offers free taxi in Manchester rampage.

 

Sikh  offers free taxi. Cosmopolitan says he’s Muslim.  

Sikh. Muslim. They all look alike to liberal magazines.

While the world watched in horror at the news of a bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England on Monday evening, ordinary Mancunians jumped in to do whatever they could to assist the survivors of the attack.

There were dozens of stories of hotels taking in stranded children, adults helping to lead scared concertgoers to safety, and taxi drivers driving people home for free. These are all incredibly inspiring stories, and are nice reminders that even in the midst of unspeakable horror, some sort of “good” can emerge.

And then there’s this (now-deleted) tweet, from Cosmopolitan: “Muslim Taxi Drivers Took Kids Trying to Escape the Manchester Ariana Grande Concert Home For Free”…with a picture of a man who is actually a Sikh.

Peace possible when Palestinians recognize state of Israel says Netanyahu

Peace between Israel and the Palestinians on what terms?

At the airport arrival ceremony, Mr. Netanyahu repeated his longstanding position that he “shares the commitment to peace” with the same conditions as always.

“Israel’s hand is extended in peace to all our neighbors, including the Palestinians,” Mr. Netanyahu said. “The peace we seek is a genuine and durable one, in which the Israeli state is recognized, security remains in Israel’s hands, and the conflict ends once and for all.”

UCLA hires student advocates — to “educate” peers about ‘whiteness’ and ‘patriarchy’

 

UCLA Hiring Student ‘Social Justice Advocates’ to Fight Against ‘Whiteness’ and ‘Patriarchy’

 This is not a drill.  Big Brother is taking names.

The backlash against the University of Arizona hiring “social justice advocates,” hourly employees who, as part of their duties, would be watching and reporting other students for “bias incidents,” was swift and pointed. Arizona only responded by changing the creepy job title, which generated another round of criticism.

You might think the explosion of awful PR would serve as a warning for other schools — but you’d only think that if you haven’t been paying attention. The rest of you could have predicted that, say, UCLA wouldn’t want to be considered less “woke” than Arizona:

The University of California-Los Angeles is offering to pay students to serve as “Social Justice Advocates” who will “educate” their peers about “systems [of] oppression.”

The Social Justice Advocates program seeks students who want to help their classmates “navigate a world that operates on whiteness, patriarchy, and heteronormativity as the primary ideologies,” and comes with a quarterly stipend, the amount of which has yet to be determined.

“Social Justice Advocates will systems [of] oppression and how they intersect and build upon each other to maintain the status quo,” the description continues. “Most importantly individuals and the collective will be empowered through liberatory scholarship and practices and strengthening their emotional intelligence to create change within their spheres of influence.”
