Like Stacy McCain who finds yet another crazy feminist:
Do not assume that my description of this woman as “demon-possessed” is a joke. Maybe you’re an atheist, and do not believe demons exist. Believe what you want to believe, but I know evil when I see it.
This is the spirit of Satan. This is the face of totalitarian hatred. This is Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Mengistu and every other murderous dictator who ever claimed the right to kill in the name of “the people.”
Nothing makes allies like telling men who support your cause: “Know your place.”
And Jazz Shaw who reports that Trump continues to make his goal like more NATO spending with allies
But even if this is the new policy and she’s good to her word, what prompted the change? Nobody seems to be saying, but two possibilities come to mind. One is that Merkel is looking ahead to her own election and believes that her voters aren’t in line with the less defense oriented plans of her opponents so she’s trying to put some daylight between herself and them. If that’s not the case, was there a phone call from Washington in the past week that we didn’t hear about? It would be in both Trump’s and Merkel’s best interests to keep any such discussions private. But it would allow Trump to eventually point to Germany and say that he got his way without Merkel looking like she was bending the knee for him.
Maybe this guy does know the art of the deal?
At Powerline John Hinderaker tells us it’s not just the south of the border flow slowing down:
it appears that the flow of refugees has declined, even though the president’s travel orders, including his reduced ceiling on refugee admissions, has been tied up in the courts by partisan judges. The Star Tribune reports: “Minnesota’s refugee stream slows to a trickle.”
The pace of refugees arriving in Minnesota slowed markedly in recent months, even though President Trump’s executive order pausing resettlement remains mired in the courts.
Arrivals hit a low of 66 statewide in March, roughly one-fifth the level of a year ago, before rebounding slightly in April. Somalis, who last fall were a majority of refugees in the state, made up less than a quarter of last month’s arrivals, based on new data from the State Department.
This chart shows the numbers:
At Pirates Cove William Teach notes both Obama’s are now making waves:
Refer back to the previous tweet. Is that something you would eat? Better question: is that something Michelle Obama would eat? Would she serve that to Barack? Would she have allowed the White House chef to serve that to her kids?
“My commitment to these issues is real,” she said. “I picked this issue because there was deep passion for it as a mother. … I’m going to continue working on this.”
Her kids sure didn’t eat that slop at their own high-toned and fancy to-do school. Why didn’t she force that school to serve her kids the same as other kids? She did very much want Everyone Else’s kids to be forced to eat that slop, and still does.
It’s not about the kids it’s about virtue signaling.
Over at Adrienne’s Corner she notices the lack of liberal self-awareness:
And nothing points more to this desperation than this screed I stumbled upon at the Huffington Post by Michelangelo Signorile, the editor-at-large of Queer Voices, To Save America We Must Stop Being Polite And Immediately Start Raising Hell.
You could almost stop reading at that over wrought title because I can’t recall a gaggle of libtards ever being polite and they’re forever raising hell.
That’s not entirely true, Liberals are invariably polite to conservatives, as long as they are attacking their fellow conservatives or republicans.
Old friend Lady Liberty 1885 is now writing at American Lens and notes the crazy continues:
A rash of campus bulletin boards and hoax stunts have recently made headlines with some of the most racist, outlandish and hyperbolic statements imaginable. But these stunts get a pass by NC campus authorities as long as the message is progressive.
The truth is that Representative Mark Walker (NC06-R) is a Christian Minister and a Conservative that has opposed funding for abortions, has marched in support of life and opposes many forms of state-sanctioned killing. Yet, progressives and liberals have targeted him because he voted to lower health insurance premiums. He wants to ensure that health care remains available to all Americans and that Obamacare doesn’t destroy the viability of our healthcare system. Walker voted in favor of the American Health Care Act of 2017 (AHCA) (See the Bill Here: HR 1628) and for that, he is labeled a murderer?
I’d say I was shocked but I like to be honest with the readers around here.
Over at Fr. Z’s blog he tells us of yet another chance to earn a Plenary Indulgence:
Pope Francis has granted a plenary indulgence opportunity for the 100th anniversary of the Fatima apparitions throughout the centennial year, from the 27th of November 2016 till the 26th of November 2017. There are three ways to obtain the indulgence, detailed in a statement from the Fatima Shrine in Portugal
If you missed out on the Year of Mercy here is your chance to grab a few plenary indulgences, sure it’s only one a month but that’s still five folks out of purgatory
