Hilarious

Hilarious Twitter Thread: Conservative satirist Iowahawk set out to show how easy it is to gin up a social media jihad against someone for saying something that offends social justice warrior sensibilities, so he launched a shame attack on the irredeemably awful Allegra Budenmayer for the unspecified but unacceptable things she allegedly said.  Who is Allegra Budenmayer?  There is no such person, but that didn’t stop #FireAllegaBudenmayer from quickly becoming a trending hashtag.  It took only one hour before she was reportedly suspended from her job at Rampit Capital (also fictitious), but that wasn’t fast enough, so they were Twitter-shamed, too! 

It’s a brilliant prank, but if you think it’s the first time a furious Twitter mob was mobilized over some offense that wasn’t even real, then you’re living in a fool’s paradise.

Trump follows up with DC summit

For those who want to know what’s actually going on between President Trump and Vladimir Putin, without the circus sideshow of people who don’t know the definition of treason shrieking “TREASON!!”, here’s a round-up of the latest developments. 

The Big Story: Trump has invited Putin to a follow-up summit at the White House.  This will accomplish Trump’s dual goals of finding common ground on which to work with Russia and making the White House Press Corps’ heads explode. 

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/07/20/fox-news-first-trump-invites-putin-to-follow-up-summit-in-washington-pompeo-blasts-absurd-helsinki-criticism.html

Trump said that while he hopes he and Putin are able to get along, if it doesn’t work out, then “I’ll be the worst enemy he’s ever had.”  In other words, the exact attitude he took into his meeting with Kim Jong-Un and virtually every other adversary: offer an open hand of friendship, but with a warning that if you don’t take it, it will be replaced with a fist.  But with Putin, it’s entirely different because…because?…because “RUSSIA!” or something.

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/07/19/trump-says-he-will-be-putin-worst-enemy-if-relationship-fails.html

Trump also reportedly disagrees with Putin’s request to interview former US diplomats and intelligence officers in exchange for letting Robert Mueller talk to the 12 Russians he indicted for hacking during the 2016 election.  When Trump earlier called that an “incredible” offer, maybe he meant literally “not credible.” 

Former Ambassador Andrew McFaul said Putin was trying to create a “moral equivalency between a legitimate indictment with lots of data and evidence to support it from Mr. Mueller with a crazy, cockamamie scheme with no relationship to facts and reality whatsoever.” We all know Mueller’s team would never be investigating something like that!

All joking aside, this shows one of the pitfalls of the Democrats and the media pressuring Trump to demand that Russia hand over its citizens who are indicted in America. It could open up a Pandora’s box, setting a precedent in which countries with no Constitutional protections start indicting Americans, such as military people or intelligence officers (or ambassadors) and demanding that we hand those Americans over to them. 

This is why, for years, Republican Presidents have refused demands from the left to submit to the UN’s International Court of Justice, or “World Court,” system.  We recognize its jurisdiction on a case-by-case basis, but maintain veto power if we disagree with it.  Globalists depict this as America being out of step with the rest of the world, but actually, the rest of the world is sadly out of step with us.  Until every nation on Earth adopts the same Bill of Rights that Americans enjoy, there’s no way American citizens should ever be forced to submit to any “global” legal authority.

Great piece

Excellent article from Andrew Klavan at PJ Media on the Trump-Putin imbroglio, examining the difference between making a mistake and being crazy, and who’s really doing Putin’s work of dividing America for him.

Obama news

I suppose I should be shocked at a liberal politician who lives in an $8.1 million mansion lecturing the rest of us, “There’s only so big a house you can have.” But then, I remember Al Gore…

COLLUSION!

Photo surfaces of powerful US politician having coffee and Krispy Kremes with Vladimir Putin.  COLLUSION! TREASON!! IMPEACHMENT!!!...Oh wait, it’s Chuck Schumer?  Never mind...

This didn't go well 

If I told you Whoopi Goldberg and Judge Jeanine Pirro were put into the same room, how do you think it would end?  You’re right!

    Thank you, Gov for keeping it real on what is happening behind the liberal media. Using the Russians as the enemy when it is here among us not from the Russians. No Russian made anyone vote against Hillary. I am an older lady now and voted since Goldwater and I voted for Obama the last time he ran per his stand for health care? I as an RN wanted care for all and thought his plan might work and it was wrong. My one son was on Obamacare when he lost his job in education. It was expensive and a high deductible. Now he did keep his Dr in Ga. Because his Dr wanted to? I did not vote for McCain yet I liked him per Palin what a dumb choice? McCain is very ill and this is sad and he is never going to back anything President Trump stands for I see this now? Sad what many in the Republican Party are dong to themselves and not sure why? Did we expect President Trump to be an angel NO! Did we want back good jobs here again. YES? They went away overseas WHY? Why did this happen? See Detroit , see the NE and the cities that died. Drugs have taken over WHY? Even Chef Bourdain had this on one of his shows up in the NE where he worked in his youth , how loss of mfg jobs and drugs were horrible now? WHY Gov.? WHY? Does this President work with N Korea leader and Russian Putin or just let them in the future send out their missiles to us. Hope every one of these attack liberals will be first in line in our military and their family to go and fight. Not support the President trying to make peace is insane and so horrible What are they trying to Prove.? I voted twice for Morning Joe in the Panhandle , never again he is so in the liberal mode per his latest love Mika. I use to like the show now since the campaign so biased and unfair. See Whoopi she has been on a rampage since President Trump won WHY Gov. Try to make him racist and I say go to his businesses and see all the different nationalities they need to do this when he runs again. Women he has hired. NO, I do not believe the group saying he had sex. The one Porn HO if he did she said one night not an affair. If he did not sure why but men will be stupid? Sorry Gov. You lovely daughter is doing one super job she is not his guide she is hired to tell what he stands for whether she believes in what he says and does totally or not. Did my husband and I of 40 yr always agree are you for real? Ha! See Mary Matline and James Carville ? Democrats are follow us or move on . How boring. Gov talk to those you know now and tell them get together or fall apart if they keep on this wave of anti President Trump. I see Gov Kasich and his attacks he wants to run for President no doubt. See Sen Flake of Az on the attack but he is on his way out so why listen to him. If the Democrats win it will only be per the stupidity of the Republicans not standing together. Even here now in Ga our Gov a nasty two in the Republican against each other WHY? So conceited in who they believe they are and hurting the concept and idea of standing together. Bang their heads and tell them STOP. Take care Gov. and keep up this great info for all of us. Ole Ga lady

    Ah, so whoopi couldn't hush Judge Jeanine up!!! Perhaps if she and her friends on the view (and many other liberals including politicians) would take a few minutes to do things like--listen to or read a transcript of what President Trump said about illegal immigrants instead of making up even more--I had never heard about the President whipping up people to beat the hell out of people. Where did that come from? Just like the few second videos of police killing unarmed, minding their own business, choir boys--don't wait for the full story, and, heaven forbid, don't make any corrections when the full story comes out--just keep on repeating the wrong stuff. I don't watch--so I don't know how much gleeful praise the view ladies (and I use that term loosely) cackled on about when maxine incited protesters to disrupt lives of Trump administration people. She now says "peaceful" but she sure didn't use that word when screaming to people to protest.

    I looked up Presidents who met with Russian leaders, only got to Bush, obama with Putin so far. There was the time that Putin was in Houston-I don't suppose GWB was there? And, a G-(I think 20) summit that lists obama met with Putin outside the summit. And several other times Putin was in the US--sure, the Presidents Bush and Obama didn't meet with him? For anyone who believes that, I have this ocean front property in western Kansas I'd like to sell you. Someone on a show I was listening to also listed FDR, Eisenhower, JFK meeting with whomever the Russia President was at the time. There was no outrage about those meetings, even when the President was a Republican.

    It's just another smh moment when there are demands that interpreters be subpoenaed so liberals can know what was said in a PRIVATE meeting--and, where were those demands for the meetings of other Presidents? Or with say, Secretaries of State, etc. And, they demand this, but congressional committees can't get documents from DOJ and FBI that have been subpoenaed? That sounds fair--NOT!!!!!

    Obama's has mobilized lapdogs to Trump-Putin enemies because if they became friends as it seems it will the gates of Hell will open wide for Obama Hillary Brennan Clapper Mueller Comey Rosenstein etc when we learn who US-Russia REAL colluders were in Uranium 1, Dosier, and much more new revelations in Hillary's nefarious activities around the world & Obama's participation in Mueller's probe. Putin is an asset for Trump America!

    I seem to remember...
    President George W. Bush invited President Putin to his Texas ranch where they had a nice visit.
    Were the Dems hiding in the bushes, secretly filming and recording as they strolled about. What
    on earth were they discussing?? My goodness! Did they accuse President Bush of evil intent or
    haul his interpreter into the Senate to get the lowdown? This recent, unhinged episode of Trump
    Derangement Syndrome might possibly earn an Oscar...or something?? Mercy!

    Whoopie is a LIBTARD or a LIBRAT. She is suffering from the Trump syndrome as Janene said. There was a time I when I thought she was somewhat sane. She is really into the cool aid now.

    football players want "American made money, but they don't like the America that makes the money"...hum something just does not add up to my 2 nd grade education level. I know a way to fix it, but the couch potatoes, and the seat warmers are not going to like it. In addition to boycotting the teams, boycott these complacent/complicitous advertisers...Sorry Budweiser, GIECO, and all those other millions paid to sponsor these sorry ingrates excuses for a human being who could care less about ALL the sacrifices that it took for them to be able to have the freedom to disrespect the country that sacrificed so much for that freedom, to "kneel without having their heads chopped off."

    In my 78 years I have never heard such as preposterous idea like talking to the translators of a one on one meeting between world leaders. If this starts happening we might as well just nuke each other and get it over with. These person to person talks, without the pressure of press and advisors are extremely important to negotiating between leaders. You can be sure that if there was going to be any illegal stuff discussed no one, not even translators would be present. I understand Vlad speaks English. There is, of course hypocracy on all sides, but the liberals have taken it to new heights. They are unbelievable. I cannot even discuss these things with many of my Democrat friends because they no longer listen to reason or care about actual facts. They never, ever give the President the benefit of the doubt about anything. Think of the things they have accused this man of: Incest; Collusion; Having done something so egregious he is being blackmailed, it goes on and on. We all know the President is a womanizer. I don’t excuse that behavior, but the Dems didn’t seem to mind about Roosevelt, Kennedy, Johnson, or Clinton. The last three took womanizing to a new level. But .i guess that’s okay if you are on the right side.

    Dear Mr. Huckabee, my husband and I love your show on TBN!
    Can you tell me why more Americans are not outraged by the amount of our tax dollars that are paying for the never ending Mueller Russian Collusion witch hunt?
    Also, we never hear anymore about our $20 trillion debt? Is our government trying to pay this down?
    We love your Sarah also!
    Thank you for all you do and your honest interpretation of the political mess in Washington!
