Johnny Eric Williams, Trinity College professor, calls white people 'inhuman': 'Let them f-ing die' - Washington Times:

Image result for Trinity College Connecticut Logos"A Connecticut college professor has created a firestorm for calling white people “inhuman a-holes” who need to “die” following last week’s shooting attack on congressional Republicans.
Trinity College’s Johnny Eric Williams’ social media feed after the June 14 shooting of Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise included racial tirades and commentary calling on minorities to “confront” white people and “end this now,” a reference to an alleged system of “white supremacy.”"

CNN deletes, retracts story linking Trump and Russia

Image result for hiding their liesCNN deletes, retracts story linking Trump and Russia
"On Thursday evening, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a potentially explosive report involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with potential ties to several associates of President Donald Trump.
But by Friday night, the story was removed from CNN’s website and all links were scrubbed from the network’s social media accounts.
“That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted,” CNN said in an editors note posted in place of the story.
“Links to the story have been disabled.”
Neither Frank or CNN immediately responded to requests for comment, and a spokesperson for the Senate Intelligence Committee wasn’t available to comment.
Frank, a Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist, had reported that the Senate Intelligence Committee was investigating a “$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team four days before Trump’s inauguration...”

Boom!-----[H]ardOCP: New World Record Set for Longest Sniper Shot

[H]ardOCP: New World Record Set for Longest Sniper Shot:
New World Record Set for Longest Sniper Shot
"Apparently, a Canadian sniper in the elite special forces, JTF 2, set the record for the longest confirmed kill shot at a distance of 3,450 meters (2.14 miles) away from the target, beating the old record by almost a 1,000 meters. 
The sniper used a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle, firing from a high-rise killing an Iraqi insurgent in a matter of 10 seconds preventing an attack on Iraqi security forces. 
That's an amazing feat including taking into account of the Coriolis effect with excellent work between the sniper and his observer partner. 
And I thought my deteriorating no-scope awping skills were good in Counter-Strike.

Prof Who Made Belligerent Appearance On TV Suspended | The Daily Caller:
"A former professor at Essex County College was indefinitely suspended two days after her heated appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Lisa Durden was told that she had to cancel her classes and report to Essex County College’s human resources department two days after a June 6 appearance on the prime time Fox News show. 
School officials then indefinitely suspended her.
“They did this to humiliate me,” Durden told The Star-Ledger. “Essex County College publicly lynched me in front of my students.”
...“I thought the whole point of Black Lives Matter, or one of the points, would be to speak out against singling people out on the basis of their race and punishing them for that because you can’t control what your race is, and yet they seem to be doing that, explain that to me,” Tucker said.
What I say to that is boo hoo hoo you white people are angry because you couldn’t use your white privilege card to get invited to the Black Lives Matters, all black, Memorial Day celebration,” Durden replied, cutting off Carlson.
WATCH:
“White folks crack me up all of a sudden, when we want one day for black folks to focus on ourselves but you’ve been having white days for ever, you don’t say the words anymore because you know its politically incorrect,” Durden shouted.
After the show, Durden received a letter from the vice president for academic affairs at Essex County College, informing her that she was suspended “until further notice.”...

Sumter County deputies said undercover deputies had bought drugs at the residence three different times, according to Villages-News.com
Deputies also said the residence also had spurred multiple complaints from neighbors after the theft of several golf carts.
Once inside, investigators found numerous parts of golf carts, including windshields, wheels, seat cushions and tires. 
But deputies say they have not been able to tie any of the recent thefts to the five people who were arrested in the bust..."

State Department Launches Investigation Into Hillary Clinton's Handling of Classified Emails | Buck Sexton

State Department Launches Investigation Into Hillary Clinton's Handling of Classified Emails | Buck Sexton:

"Tops on the list of headlines you expected to read two years ago…

Image result for flickr commons images hillary clintonThe State Department has launched an internal investigation into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton improperly handled classified information by storing it on a public server and using it to send and receive classified documents.

Shockingly, despite the investigation, Clinton and her former staffers are still allowed to have security clearances to access sensitive government information."


They're Wrong About Everything

They're Wrong About Everything
"Events are turning me into a radical skeptic.
I no longer believe what I read, unless what I am reading is an empirically verifiable account of the past.
I no longer have confidence in polls, because it has become impossible to separate the signal from the noise.
Image result for msm liesWhat I have heard from the media and political class over the last several years has been so spectacularly proven wrong by events, again and again, that I sometimes wonder why I continue to read two newspapers a day before spending time following journalists on Twitter.
Habit, I guess.
A sense of professional obligation, I suppose.
Maybe boredom.
The fact is that almost the entirety of what one reads in the paper or on the web is speculation. 
The writer isn't telling you what happened, he is offering an interpretation of what happened, or offering a projection of the future.
..."Like a bearded nut in robes on the sidewalk proclaiming the end of the world is near, the media is just doing what makes it feel good, not reporting hard facts," Michael Crichton once said.
"We need to start seeing the media as a bearded nut on the sidewalk, shouting out false fears. 
It's not sensible to listen to it."...

NPR: 25 Million Votes For Clinton 'Completely Fake' - She Lost Popular Vote
Image result for Democrat Voter Fraud"A study published by NPR reveals that over 25 million Hillary Clinton votes were completely fraudulent, meaning that the Democratic candidate actually lost the popular vote by a huge margin. 
A study by the Pew Center claiming that over 800,000 non-citizens voted for Hillary Clinton failed to take into account dead and fraudulent voters which totalled over 25 million “registered voters”.
According to reports, illegal aliens combined with dead voters and “multiple state” voters explains why Hillary appeared to have won the popular vote over Trump during this years presidential race.
“A report by the Pew Center on the States finds that more than 

  • 1.8 million dead people are currently registered to vote, 
  • and 24 million registrations are either invalid or inaccurate,” 

NPR reported in 2012, which is ironic given how NPR is heavily controlled by Democrats.
And many of the dead, registered voters somehow keep voting Democrat from beyond the grave, most recently in Philadelphia, Penn.  and Colorado.“
…The Pew study found that almost 3 million people are registered to vote in more than one state,” NPR added..."

"If you like your coffee black, you may be someone who prefers strong flavours, takes good care of their health, or just wants to drink their coffee the way it’s supposed to be drunk.
Or, you may be a psychopath.
At least, that’s according to a new study published in the journal Appetite, which found a correlation between a love of black coffee and sadist or psychopathic tendencies.
...The study, carried out by researchers at the University of Innsbruck, found that a preference for bitter flavours was linked to psychopathic behaviour.
The closest association was between bitter foods and “everyday sadism” – that is to say, enjoyment of inflicting moderate levels of pain on others.
And it isn’t just black coffee that should ring alarm bells – the study also found participants who reported a fondness for radishes, celery and tonic water were also more likely to exhibit antisocial traits..."

Spot the difference: CNN vs. Breitbart edition
Two articles, one in CNN and one in Breitbart.  Can anyone spot the difference?
A police officer was stabbed in the back and neck Wednesday at an airport in Flint, Michigan, and the suspect is in custody and being questioned, according to authorities.
The FBI said it believed the attack was an "isolated incident" and is investigating whether it was an act of terrorism.
"We are aware of reports that the attacker made statements immediately prior to or while attacking the officer, but it is too early to determine the nature of these alleged statements or whether or not this was an act of terrorism," the FBI said.
Officer stabbed in Michigan by man yelling "Allahu Akbar"
Why would CNN leave out what the stabber actually said in the article plus the person's race?  
CBS radio also is not saying what the person said or his name and saying it is impossible to tell if it is terrorism.
Somehow, the other day, when a white person drove a truck into Muslims in London, the media were immediately able to declare it terrorism and say the driver's race.  Isn't that amazing?
I am not a law enforcement officer or a reporter, but my deep analysis of the situation leads me to conclude that the stabbing was a terrorist attack done in the name of Islam. 
Why don't the media report what they know instead of intentionally keeping certain information from the public?"

Real Scandals The Trump-Obsessed Media Are Ignoring | Stock News & Stock Market Analysis - IBD:

Image result for free clip art Empty"As news outlets dissect every new crumb in the alleged Trump-Russia-collusion scandal, they're largely ignoring other, very troubling scandals that happen to involve the previous administration.

So far, and no doubt to the disappointment of many Trump haters, the Russia scandal has been going nowhere fast. Eleven months of investigating has so far turned up no hard evidence that there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to interfere with the November elections.

While that scandal drags on, however, several others have taken surprising turns. Not that you'd know it from the coverage these are getting from the mainstream press."

Home Improvement Chains Accused of False Advertising Over Lumber Dimensions - Slashdot

Home Improvement Chains Accused of False Advertising Over Lumber Dimensions - Slashdot:
"per unit analyzer writes:
According to Consumerist, an attorney has filed a class-action lawsuit charging Home Depot (PDF) and Menards (PDF) with deceptive advertising practices by selling "lumber products that were falsely advertised and labeled as having product dimensions that were not the actual dimensions of the products sold." 
Image result for kill all the lawyersNow granted, this may be news to the novice DIYer, but overall most folks who are purchasing lumber at home improvement stores know that the so-called trade sizes don't match the actual dimensions of the lumber. 
Do retailers need to educate naive consumers about every aspect of the items they sell?
(Especially industry quirks such as this...)
Furthermore, as the article notes, it's hard to see how the plaintiffs have been damaged when these building materials are compatible with the construction of the purchaser's existing buildings. i.e.,
An "actual" 2x4 would not fit in a wall previously built with standard 2x4s -- selling the something as advertised would actually cause the purchaser more trouble in many cases."

USS Fitzgerald, Big Ocean Gets Small, Collision at sea | U.S. Naval Institute:
"...So, all through the night the captain is receiving phone calls when the ship is near land.
Typically the report goes like the this: “Sir, this is the Officer of the Deck…I have a contact, broad on the starboard bow at 12,000 yards. He is drifting left to a CPA [closest point of approach] on our port bow, at 6,000 yards, in 20 minutes. My intention is to maintain course and speed.
When the OOD calls, the captain envisions the situation in his or her head and then either concurs with the recommendations of the OOD or, if necessary, gives instructions.
Sometimes, if the OOD is concerned with the situation, the officer will ask the captain to come to the pilot house.
Other times, the captain gets a bad feeling and she goes without being asked.
A captain has to know the OODs strengths and weaknesses.
The COs need to know how to read voices—does the OOD sound settled and confident?
Is there a hint of concern?
What time is it?
It is in this area where things can and do go wrong.
Sometimes, an OOD is afraid to call the captain.
Maybe the captain is intimidating.
Maybe the OOD, despite the best of intentions, lets a ship get within 10,000 yards before calling. Now the OOD may understand that he or she is in peril of getting rebuked by a captain who cannot possibly understand why the OOD did not understand the meaning of 10,000 yards.
Maybe the OOD will lose the captain’s trust?
Maybe the CO will fire the OOD—which would be painful and humiliating.
Captains must be careful not to get mad or cranky when called.
You do not want to make your OODs hesitant to call. 
It takes a ship going 15 knots only 6 minutes to go 3,000 yards. 
If your ship and the approaching ship are traveling at 15 knots, the range can decrease by 6,000 yards in 6 minutes. 
At night, with all the confusion in a busy seaway, the approaching ship can be on you before you know it.
And then what?..."

Bloodshed is coming to America

Bloodshed is coming to America:
"Bloodshed is coming to America, and it won’t be a response to oppression but the result of aggression – against God and our constitutional form of government.
The increasingly violent acts in our streets, town-hall meetings and university campuses are simply birth pangs for a greater upheaval that’s brewing hot – and it’s not by accident.
Image result for Bloodshed is coming to AmericaAlthough the narrative is that street protests and student uprisings are simply a response to Trump as president or guest speakers with conservative values, the truth is they are coordinated attacks resulting from a subversive anti-God, anti-American ideology that has indoctrinated our universities for more than 50 years.
Let us explain.
In 1963, a book written by Cleon Skousen titled “The Naked Communist” was presented to Congress by Rep A.S. Herlong Jr. of Florida. 
In his remarks, he submitted the book’s list of goals, which revealed how revolutionaries intended to turn our nation from constitutionalism to communism without firing a single bullet
And the schoolroom provided the perfect staging ground. 
The full list of goals can be found in the Congressional Record – Appendix, Pages A34-A35, Jan. 10, 1963.
Here are just a few:
17) Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18) Gain control of all student newspapers.
19) Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations, which are under Communist attack.
20) Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21) Gain control of key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures.
40) Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
42) Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition, that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.
Sound familiar? These goals aren’t simply being taught to our youth, they are being caught – and now carried out.
