Leftist New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu has ordered four Confederate monuments removed, claiming they do not represent “the diversity and future” of the city. It’s amusing how liberals only celebrate history which doesn’t make people feel uncomfortable.
The tense and often divisive removal of four Confederate-era monuments from prominent displays around New Orleans came to an end Friday as a crowd estimated at about 1,000 people watched while workers took down the iconic statue of General Robert E. Lee from atop a 60-foot column at Lee Circle.
The removal ended 133 years for the statue at the piece of land that connects New Orleans’ Uptown and Garden District areas with the CBD and French Quarter.
People have lost their goddamned minds. Robert E. Lee was a hero and a patriot long before the Civil War. The man served with honor, but will now disappear from the public view because a few snowflakes got a case of teh sadz.
“These men did not fight for the United States of America, they fought against it,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu.
Really? Lee fought for the U.S. in the Mexican-American War, and spent thirty-two years in the U.S. Army; including a stint as the Superintendent of the Military Academy at West Point. P.G.T. Beauregard also fought in the Mexican-American War and spent twenty-three years in the U.S. Army. Jefferson Davis served in the American Indian Wars and the Mexican-American War and spent a dozen years serving in the U.S. Army. I guess Landrieu hides facts as well as monuments.
The Civil War was the bloodiest conflict in U.S. history. It was a horrible event which pitted brother against brother, and worse still, was completely unavoidable. (I lay much of the blame at the feet of President James Buchanan.) That said, suppressing the facts of the war does a disservice to those ignorant of the war’s horrors. History is ugly, but “protecting” people from it does more harm than good.
“A nation which does not remember what it was yesterday does not know where it is today.” – Robert E. Lee
Six months after the presidential election, Joe Biden wants to warn us about Hillary Clinton.
Joe Biden has a reputation for saying what’s on his mind, and on Thursday night, he reportedly didn’t hold back at all about former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate,” Biden reportedly told an audience of hedge fund managers at the annual SALT conference in Las Vegas.
What gave it away, Joe? Hillary’s irascible personality, her rampant corruption, or the brain damage? By the way, you were not a great candidate, either, jackass, and you are hardly a man of the people when you’re addressing hedge fund managers.
“No man or woman should announce for the presidency unless they genuinely believe that for the that moment in the nation’s history they are the most qualified person to deal with the issues facing the country,” Biden continued.
Funny, your former boss, King Putt, stated “there has never been a man or a woman – not me, not Bill, nobody – more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America.” Could it be Barack Obama is simply a bullshitter, Joe?
A veteran BBC reporter made himself out to be a boob after “accidentally” pushing a bystander out of the way by the breasts during a live interview.
Ben Brown was interviewing the BBC’s Assistant Political Editor Norman Smith about the reaction to Labour’s manifesto launch in Bradford.
But halfway through the interview a random female passerby wearing sunglasses walked directly into the view of the camera and said “absolutely fantastic”, cracked a smile and gave a thumbs up.
Displeased about the interruption, the presenter pushed her away by the breast and proceeded to continue with the interview as if nothing had happened. Smith also asked her to leave them alone, saying: “Yes, just give us one second, alright?”
The unnamed woman then stepped backwards looking surprised and landing a firm slap on Mr Brown’s shoulder before walking away from the pair.
Nicely done! I wonder if Brown will get canned for being such a tit?
Princess P’s second grade class has been working on a project for the last month or so. The assignment was a wax museum, where the students were to choose a notable American citizen and write a report about their life.
The students were to also dress as the person profiled, and pose in the school’s human wax museum in the gymnasium. When visitors approached, the student would recite certain facts about their citizen.
Julia’s teacher sent home a sample list of Americans, most of which are the same boring suggestions every child receives: Susan B. Anthony (our ugliest president), Amelia Earhart, and so forth. Yeah, we weren’t having any of that. The teacher said we could add our own suggestions, and being a tremendous hockey fan, I asked Julia if she wanted to research Cammi Granato.
Who is Cammi Granato? She is the first woman to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, and is a member of U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame and International Hockey Hall of Fame. She was captain of the 1998 U.S. Women’s gold medal hockey team, and scored the first ever Olympic goal for that team. She is the U.S. Olympic team’s all-time leading scorer and received an invite to the New York Islanders training camp.
Granato is also a member of NBC’s hockey coverage and a color commentator for the Los Angeles Kings. Outside the rink, Granato supports special needs children by starting Golden Dreams for Children Foundation. She also runs an annual hockey camp during the summer in Chicago for young girls.
Julia embraced the idea of representing Cammi in school, and wore a USA hockey jersey and brought Kevin’s hockey stick. Mrs. Earp attended the wax museum, and said she did a tremendous job.
The media is continuing their unfounded attacks on President Trump, and true to form, the GOP is folding in the face of pressure.
Republicans in Congress are increasingly dispirited over the chaos surrounding Donald Trump, with several saying the nonstop revelations are imperiling their legislative agenda and the top Senate Republican signaling he’d go his own way on some of the president’s top priorities.
What legislative agenda? You assholes have done nothing – nothing – since January, and you expect us to support you?
Those concerns mounted after news broke Tuesday evening that Trump asked James Comey to close the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
That’s bullshit and fake f**king news. Comey’s memo said nothing about Trump asking him to close the Flynn investigation. “I hope you can let this go,” if Trump even said that – no one has seen the memo yet – can be interpreted many ways, but Trump never specifically asked to have the investigation shut down. It’s an out and out lie.
Comey wrote a memo about the conversation immediately after it occurred in February. Democrats said Trump’s request amounted to obstruction of justice while Republicans demanded information from the administration.
Really? A self-serving memo no one has even seen is now evidence of a crime? I must have missed the day they taught that in the police academy.
Earlier Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he’s prepared to block Trump on many of his proposed budget cuts and won’t support major tax cuts that add to the deficit. Nor would he commit to building Trump’s border wall.
Wow, there’s a shock. McConnell and Paul Ryan are despicable pieces of human filth, and their continuous Trump obstruction will lead to their demise in 2018. The GOP will lose the House next year, because they have given people nothing to vote for. No agenda, no accomplishments, nothing.
In the aftermath of the elitist demeanor of the Obama administration, First Lady Melania Trump is quietly making the White House accessible again.
For the first time in the history of White House tours, visitors will now be able to view the famous White House movie theater, thanks to a new directive by first lady Melania Trump.
The move to open up more of the White House to ordinary citizens stood in stark contrast to former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle, who regularly hosted celebrities and star-studded events but suspended citizen tours of the mansion for eight months in 2013.
“The White House belongs to the people of this country,” Melania Trump said in her announcement. “I believe everyone who takes the time to visit and tour the White House should have as much access to its rich history and wonderful traditions as possible. It is my hope that our visitors truly enjoy the newest piece of the tour.”
Wait a minute, I thought the White House was reserved for Hollywood celebrities and rich mega-donors? I know that’s the way the founders envisioned it.
In the continuing effort to keep rockin’ my smokin’ hot bod, I went for a walk after work yesterday. Temperatures were in the low 90s, so I kept the walk/jog to three miles. (I only jog the hills.)
I was maintaining a decent pace, and after my first hill jog, I started to feel… uneasy. I’ve been walking for a while now, and the three mile trek I was on usually takes me less than forty minutes.
Yesterday was different.
I was sweating more than normal, but I brought a bottle of water to keep cool. About a mile and a half in, though, my stomach started to hurt. A lot. I felt like I was going to simultaneously barf and break into the poops at the same time.
This odd tale of the tape begins with Joel Alvarez, a photographer in Miami and creator of The Black Tape Project, which he calls “tape art and alternative fashion.”
Alvarez tapes pieces of black electric tape onto naked models to make it look as if they’re wearing swimwear. Skimpy swimwear. Really skimpy swimwear. Alvarez has taped up women from Las Vegas and New York to Europe and the Caribbean.
According to the Post he charges up to $1,000 for private taping sessions, which include a sexy photo shoot.
$1,000 to tape up naked women? Jesus, what a racket. This trend is all well and good during the taping, but the regret comes with the removal. Nobody likes chafed pink parts.
By reading his tweets, one would think Donald Trump is the greatest media troll of all time. The man posts comments solely to drive the MSM insane – well, more so – and while he is arguably a master troller, Trump does have one equal.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump had not passed any secrets onto Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a meeting in Washington last week and that he could prove it.
Putin said Russia was ready to hand a transcript of Trump’s meeting with Lavrov over to U.S. lawmakers if that would help reassure them.
Obviously I’m no fan of Putin, but this is a work of brilliance. Not only is the Russian strongman trolling the media, but he’s also trolling the Democrat snowflakes shrieking about the latest “impeachable offense.” Bravo, Vladimir. Bravo.
