Ladies first!

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets no love from the left, but plenty of love from Reddit’s The_Donald forum where she is known as both Sarah the Warrior Princess and also, as Lieutenant to the God Emperor, Sarah the Shield-Bearer, Patron Saint of the Order of the Fiery Heart. Check out these great photoshops:

Dianny at the Patriot Retort writes about the left’s unrelenting mission to dehumanize Sarah (and everyone else they see fit to destroy), and she includes this lovely picture from Twitter featuring Sarah concluding the #PieGate “scandal” nonsense with good humor and a friendly smile – and pie:

#WarOnWomen – I mean, War on WHITE Women. Remember when feminists were all “#YesALLWomen”? Now, not so much, as a feminist march organizer urges fellow leftist agitators to #ConfrontWhiteWomanhood. So that’s a thing now. Sad!

If you think that was stupid, the UK says, “hold muh beer”: they are BANNING depictions of women in traditional roles from appearing in advertisements because they claim that seeing women shown as loving mothers and wives is harmful or some such nonsense.

Deanna Jo Robinson is living a horrible nightmare. The decorated Air Force Veteran brought her children from Texas to New York City to visit their father, who she is divorced from, last month. Her ex-husband called the cops and had them search her vehicle where they found her personal gun in the glove compartment, which she has a license for in Texas, but nobody except cops and criminals may have guns in New York City, so she was arrested and hauled off to prison at Riker’s Island and her kids were placed with strangers by the City’s department of Administrative Child Services. By the way, New York City offers a $1000 reward for ratting people out about guns – even when the gun owner is legally permitted to have the gun anywhere outside of NYC. Ms. Robinson has since been released on bail, but her children are still being kept from her by ACS and she has not been allowed to visit them. Via Gateway Pundit:

On Veteran’s Day weekend, Robinson had traveled from Texas to New York, so her children could see their father. She brought her Smith & Wesson 9mm Shield handgun. As soon as they arrived at her ex-husband’s house, he apparently called the police, suspecting that she had a firearm in her car, even though she never mentioned it, never threatened anyone, never even had it in her hands. Coincidentally, New York has a $1000 reward for anyone with information that leads to an arrest involving a firearm. PURE COINCIDENCE, of course. I mean, who would turn in their ex to the police out of vengeance in order to score some quick cash and use it as leverage for custody and divorce court? (sarcasm)

Approximately 20 NYPD officers responded to the call, rushing her car, dragging her out by her hair, slamming her down on the pavement, face first, while screaming all sorts of conflicting orders at her. She’s lucky she didn’t get Daniel Shaver’ed. They searched her car with no warrant, confiscating her gun and several personal items, such as her phone, computer, a small video camera, boots, and early Christmas presents. Her car was immediately impounded. This took place at approximately 12:00 noon, Saturday, November 11th. She was kept at a precinct until around 8:00 PM, with no water, no food, and no phone call, despite her pleading for such.

She was then taken to central booking, where she was held until about 2:00 AM on Monday, November 13th. At that point, she was loaded onto a bus and taken to the women’s center at Riker’s Island, before any court, any charges formally filed, before she could speak with an attorney, before any bond was set, before she was even in front of a judge. She was kept at Riker’s Island until November 24th, when $15,000 of bail had been raised, thanks primarily to the fundraising page on Funded Justice.

Robinson has opted to stay in the New York, in large part because her children have now been ripped from her, kidnapped by the NYC “Administrative Child Services” (ACS), claiming to have emergency jurisdiction. She is not allowed to see her kids, and neither are the kids’ grandparents. Though they don’t list their number on their official website, this “child services” outfit can be reached at 718-933-1212. Robinson had previously been awarded custody by a court in Texas.

“Child Services” is supposed to give Robinson three weekly visits with her children, with a minimum of two hours per visit. So far that hasn’t happened. Instead, her children are kept with total strangers, in a large urban city which they had never been to and don’t know anything about. MORE

Last New Year’s Eve, in Cologne, Germany, hundreds of women were sexually assaulted by hordes of rampaging muslim “migrants”. This year, the politically correct believe they have a solution that will protect women from a repeat of such savagery: have them wear little rubber bracelets that say “respect”. Yeah, good luck with that.

In July, an innocent Australian woman in Minnesota had called the police to report a disturbance. When the police arrived, she went to talk to the officers who were in their vehicle, and one of the the cops, an islamic Somali immigrant (and token “diversity” hire), fatally shot her in the stomach for no apparent reason while she was talking to the other cop. The policeman who killed this woman refuses to cooperate with investigators and because it would be politically incorrect to publicize this story, it has not been much in the news, but now there will officially be no justice for the victim – ever. BNI has the full horrible story, HERE.

I bring you one last women’s issue before I sign off from this post: Complex Endometrial Hyperplasia – I have it, and I will be undergoing a medically necessary hysterectomy on Wednesday to deal with it, along with another surgery to repair an umbilical hernia that is sort of in the way and needs fixing anyway. I also have Addison’s Disease, which can make even dental surgery dangerous, so I am hoping that some of you nice people will pray for me to get through the surgeries safely. I will not be writing here next Friday, but I will return as soon as I am able. Thank you all for any prayers you can spare and thank you to Peter for giving me the opportunity to write here for all of you. May you all have a very Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah, and may God Bless you all.

MJ Stevenson, AKA Zilla, is best known on the web as Zilla at MareZilla.com. She lives in a woodland shack near a creek, in one of those rural parts of New York State that nobody knows or cares about, with her family and a large pack of guardian companion animals. 

If you decide to join the jerks who visit cool countries and travel to the island-prison, there are a couple of things you may want to keep in mind.

First, there are the weird symptoms: On Sept. 29, the State Department recalled 21 employees of the American Embassy in Havana, Cuba.

The group (along with three Canadians) were all suffering from an odd combination of symptoms: “hearing loss, dizziness, headache, fatigue, cognitive issues, and difficulty sleeping,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ticked off in an official statement.

On Wednesday, an upcoming report to be published in the Journal of the American Medical Association by doctors at the University of Miami, the University of Pennsylvania, and government medical experts was reported by the AP to include evidence that the 24 victims showed clear patterns of brain abnormalities.

Whether they were due to sonic attacks or poisoning remains to be determined.

Two: Reuters reports (emphasis added),

American tourists strolling the ample squares and narrow streets of colonial Havana may not know it, but from novelist Ernest Hemingway’s famed Floridita bar to Sloppy Joe’s eatery, they are probably patronizing businesses owned by Cuba’s military.

Three: Big brother will be watching you.

Including that quaint house at El Vedado you saw at Airbnb,

Airbnb over the last week has suspended or banned hosts—both in Europe and the United States—for violating a strict Airbnb prohibition on undisclosed cameras on the properties.

However, the company has not responded to several Washington Free Beacon inquiries about whether it warns U.S. or other tourists traveling to Cuba about the potential for Cuban government’s electronic surveillance of guest quarters and long history of the Castro regime’s security police gaining access to rented rooms.
. . .
The government can easily track foreign guests because it requires Airbnb hosts to report their passport numbers to Cuban immigration authorities, according to a report last year in the Miami Herald.

The latter article has more information on the dismal financial arrangements the oppressive communist regime imposes on its people.

And last,
If you insist on spending a winter holiday in the island prison, remember the old phrase, forewarned is foretold.

Andrew Breitbart Weinergate’s Hero

2.  Don’t be afraid to admit a screw up

7.  Be open about your biases

Journalism 101 via DaTechGuy Feb 13th 2017

As I read CNN rushing to spin away the Tweet from Anderson Cooper’s twitter account concerning the president I can’t but help but remember another day when a major figure of the left who initially claimed Hacking?

You might recall when the story first broke the MSM claimed hacking and to a man attacked Andrew Breitbart for suggesting the Anthony Weiner had not in fact been hacked and all kinds of elaborate theories of how this hacking came out.

The problem of course was, as noted by an interesting fellow in the NY Post and elsewhere, that people all understood that the difference between a direct message and a public tweet was a single character nevertheless some interesting theories came out

For the tweet to have come from Patroitusa76 AND deleted by Weiner in the sequence

1. Patriot76USA He (she) would have needed to know about the Yfrog tweet vulnerability/feature

2. … would have had to have the exact code necessary to exploit that vulnerability/feature

3. … would have had to have access of a picture that Anthony Weiner will not deny is his…stuff

4 and over a memorial day weekend Anthony Weiner would have to be monitoring his twitter account, notice it at once and delete it within seconds.

For the tweet to have come from Rep Weiner he would have had to :

1. … hit the wrong character when sending a tweet.

2. … realize it and delete it

Which one would seem more likely?

As we all remember occam’s razor and Andrew Breitbart ended up winning the day

Now this business of Anderson’s Cooper’s tweet shown here

is, in my opinion a much smaller story.   Partly because it’s not a few years ago when the MSM still kept up even a small facade that they are not, as Glenn Reynolds describes them as “Democrats with bylines” but mostly because given the open animus between the MSM/Left in general and CNN in particular the idea that either Mr. Cooper or his assistant in a self-righteous fit of pique and rage might have violated journalistic standards concerning Donald Trump is entirely believable and would have been accepted, if critiqued by people in general.

But for CNN to claim this after an “investigation”

That some random fellow found the phone of Anderson Cooper’s assistant and sent that tweet bends Occam’s razor to the breaking point.

This is what I don’t get here. If Cooper just came out and said:

My assistant accidentally sent that tweet from my account that he was logged into rather than his account that he thought he was tweeting from, and while I apologize for that mistake I’m not going to fire him over a mistake that anyone could have made and that given this controversy he’s unlikely to repeat anytime soon.

…a few voices might have jabbed him over it and while the White House (and the president on twitter) might have given him some grief, most people, particularly those who use twitter with multiple accounts would understand how that could have happened, accepted it and let it go.

Instead we have a news organization that has just spent a weeks recovering from blown stories putting out a story that strains credibility thus turning a minor story of a liberal media hack going off on Trump to a much more newsworthy story: Did a CNN “investigation” cover up an inappropriate tweet by a staff member to protect their weekday primetime anchor?.

Given their daily attacks on the president’s truthfullnes one would think that this would not be a position a news organization would want to be in but THIS IS CNN.

And they wonder why they are considered fake news.

Maybe it’s something in the water?
