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?

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.”

Firenze Sage: The entire Dem party leadership is composed of crude louts?

Nancy Pelosi with  John Burton comment  concerning Donald  Trump at CA state convention

  CA Dem Chair John Burton  –– who was  sued and paid concerning  sexual harassment charges   in 2008 — shouted  ‘All Together Now: F*ck Donald Trump!’ as Crowd Holds Up Two Middle Fingers.  This is from the Daily Pundit.

California – The classless Democrats gathered in Sacramento for a state convention on Saturday. They had some harsh words for the President as they chanted, ‘F*** Donald Trump!’.

The party’s leaders   — including Nancy Pelosi —  blasted Trump’s alleged ties to Russia and presented California as the epicenter of liberal resistance to the president.

“The world, literally the world, is counting on all of you, counting on California to reject Trump’s deception and destructiveness,” said Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, who is among a crowded field of Democrats running for governor next year.

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, often mentioned as a potential candidate for president in 2020, accused Trump of putting “Russia first, America second.”

In a sign of the vigor of the party’s distaste for the president, outgoing party Chair John Burton, a longtime Democratic lawmaker and powerbroker known for his blunt and profane manner, extended two middle fingers in the air as the crowd cheered and joined him.

“F— Donald Trump,” John Burton  said.

you get what you sow: American Spectator rumors on FBI Comey are corroborated

 

FBI Comey tries to blend in with blue  curtains

“The American Spectator can now report a follow-up on the World Exclusive we published on May 17, with a correction. Our May 17 story reported that James B. Comey was caught on surveillance cameras in the White House blowing his nose on the curtains. The surveillance tapes have been turned over to Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a determination as to whether government property was damaged, which could lead to a stiff prison sentence and a hefty fine. After all Mr. Comey was, at the time, a government servant.

Now the New York Times has corroborated our story in a front-page account that mentions “the blue curtains,” but the Times corrected our erroneous claim that the encounter took place in “early February.” The encounter took place according to the Times on January 22. AmSpec has verified the correct date.

According to the Times story that appeared today: “Mr. Comey — who is 6 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing a dark blue suit that day — told Mr. Wittes [a friend of his] that he tried to blend in with the blue curtains in the back of the room, in the hopes that Mr. Trump would not spot him and call him out. ‘He thought he had gotten through and not been noticed or singled out and that he was going to get away….’”

For Mr. Comey that was not the case. The Times continues: “But Trump spotted Comey and called him out.” Exactly what was said between the two men is not known. As we reported on May 17, Comey is known around the department for his loud nose-blowing, and perhaps the ever-alert President Trump actually witnessed Mr. Comey in the act of blowing his nose on the curtain. At, any rate the Times goes on to report that, “With an abashed look on his face, Mr. Comey walked up to Mr. Trump.” Presumably special counsel Robert Mueller III will be looking into the matter and possibly the President will at some point tweet his account

Whatever the case The American Spectator — and now the New York Times — will be keeping the reading public up to date on these important developments.”

500 fainting couches needed — quick — at Orange Coast College in CA

fainting couches needed at Orange Coast College

 

Sociology professor bans Republican Club

Quick – we need 500 fainting couches over here.    

As Republican Club students  are not allowed to attend a  college discussion.
The  sociology professor cited an ‘expectation that this is a safe space event.’
A professor at Orange Coast College in California banned the school’s Republican Club from attending a public African American/Women’s round table discussion in March — apparently over “safe space” concerns.
Jessica Alabi, a sociology professor, apparently e-mailed three campus officials announcing that she would not allow the students to attend.
The e-mail, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Examiner, stated: Hi Kevin. I just told the Republican club that they could not come to the Curl Talk event. This event is an African American / Women’s round table discussion. I asked Vincent why was he doing this and I was very upset. He brought five people who kept saying that they were told that they could come to women’s history month events.  I just want everyone to be advised that the African American female students had and still have an expectation that this is a safe space event. If the college will not stand up to the Republican club, I have decided to stand up for myself and other students. Just wanted to keep you informed.

taxing space rockets: Ok Mr Spock stop at the California toll station

 

CA plans to  tax  space rocket travel

OK Mr. Spock, stop at the California toll station.

  In California, they are taking the idea one step farther, planning to tax space rockets by the mile as well.

According to the proposal, California will collect tax from space transportation companies based on a formula factoring in how often a company launches spacecrafts out of the state, and, most importantly, how far a commercial spacecraft travels from California soil. Between May and mid-October, there were eight launches from Vandenberg Air Force Base, in Santa Barbara County about 50 miles south of San Luis Obispo.

The Franchise Tax Board proposal said certainty about tax treatment “will lead to increased activity in the industry and will foster an atmosphere of growth and prosperity once present during the golden age of California’s aviation industry, thereby creating jobs as the industry thrives in this state.”
