Spelling Bee
"You want me to spell that?!"

The host of CNN’s New Day, Alisyn Camerota, was seen making a very insensitive and racist remark to twelve year old girl while interviewing her; after she had won the national spelling bee.

Camerota and co-host jokingly asked Ananya Vinay, to spell the word “covfefe;” while interviewing the young girl of Indian origin after her big win at the Scripps National Spelling Be competition, one of the most recognized spelling competitions within the USA.

“Covfefe” was an accidental typo made by President Donald Trump, on one of his many tweets on Twitter. Ever since the tweet was published, it has gone viral with memes and jokes of all sort being based upon it.

Vinay attempted to spell the impossible, she left out the “v.”  To this, Camerota chimed in and called it a “nonsense word.” However, the worst happened when she went to remark Vinay about not being sure as whether the root of the word comes Sanskrit, “which is probably what you’re used to using.”

It is has been noted that while Vinay’s family origin is from India, she is actually from Fresno, California.

Moreover, Vinay’s family is of Kerala-origin and the primary language spoken in Kerala is Malayalam, and definitely not Sanskrit. In fact, Sanskrit is only spoken by less than one percent of Indians today and that too usually by Hindu priests during religious ceremonies.

A spokeswoman for CNN spoke with the Washington Post and said otherwise. She stated that Camoreta’s comment had nothing to do with Ananya’s heritage.

“Alisyn made the same joking reference to the root of ‘covfefe’ in an earlier panel discussion that aired Wednesday,” she told the Washington Post.

“If she’s guilty of anything it’s recycling a joke. To assign a bias to what was a fun and innocent segment celebrating Ananya Vinay’s incredible accomplishment is frankly extremely cynical.”

Terrorist Cell
What could possibly go wrong with open borders? #RefugeesWelcome!

One of the terrorists who carried out the deadly London Bridge attack in England this month fought in an affiliate of Senator John McCain’s beloved Free Syrian Army (FSA) in Libya, supporting the U.S.-backed effort to topple Muammar Gaddafi. His name is Rachid Redouane and, after fighting in the Libyan revolution with the Tripoli-based group Liwa al Ummah, he joined a militia that deployed jihadist fighters to Syria.

The unit fought alongside Al-Qaeda extremists in Syria, according to a British newspaper story that says Redouane’s plea for asylum in the United Kingdom was rejected in 2009 though he continued living in the country. The Liwa al Ummah was formed by a deputy of Abdul Hakim Belhaj, the former emir of the Al Qaeda-linked Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, according to a think tank that studies British foreign policy. In 2012, the Liwa al Ummah in Syria merged with the FSA, which was formed in August 2011 by Turkish-based army deserters aiming to bring down Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The Liwa al Ummah was considered an FSA unit in Syria and sometimes it teamed up with Al Qaeda’s official Syrian branch, Al-Nusra.

Redouane’s connection to the FSA is yet another damaging piece of evidence showing that opposition forces in Syria are run by Islamic terrorists. This has not deterred McCain’s ardent support for the Syrian rebels, especially the FSA. The Arizona Republican, also chair of the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee, has worked closely with a “Syria expert” who was the political director of a Syrian Islamist organization that helped define and steer policy in the Obama White House as well as Congress. Judicial Watch has reported on this for years and back in 2013 published a piece on the so-called expert, Elizabeth O’Bagy, who somehow convinced the president, secretary of state and some federal lawmakers that Syrian rebels are mostly moderates and not terrorists who deserve U.S. support.

McCain was so smitten by O’Bagy that he read a chunk of her Wall Street Journal opinion piece—touting the FSA as a moderate opposition force—during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing. In it O’Bagy makes a case for U.S. military intervention in Syria by asserting that concerns about Al-Qaeda terrorists running the rebel operations are unfounded. After all, the United States doesn’t want to support the very jihadists that want to murder its citizens. Here is a portion of the excerpt that McCain read at the hearing: “Contrary to many media accounts, the war in Syria is not being waged entirely, or even predominantly, by dangerous Islamists and al Qaeda die-hards.

The jihadists pouring into Syria from countries like Iraq and Lebanon are not flocking to the front lines. Instead they are concentrating their efforts on consolidating control in the northern, rebel-held areas of the country. “Moderate opposition forces—a collection of groups known as the Free Syrian Army—continue to lead the fight against the Syrian regime. While traveling with some of these Free Syrian Army battalions, I’ve watched them defend Alawi and Christian villages from government forces and extremist groups. They’ve demonstrated a willingness to submit to civilian authority, working closely with local administrative councils. And they have struggled to ensure that their fight against Assad will pave the way for a flourishing civil society.”

A year later Judicial Watch reported on an embarrassing outburst that McCain, who is hell-bent on arming jihadist opposition forces in Syria, had during a meeting with Syrian Christian leaders touring Capitol Hill. The delegation of Syrian clergy went to Washington to raise awareness among lawmakers of the growing crisis among the region’s minority Christian community.

Christians make up about 10% of the Syrian population and they are being targeted and ruthlessly murdered by radical elements of the rebel forces, according to the visiting church officials. Churches have been destroyed or burned, children killed, nuns abducted and countless others abducted by Islamic fighters, the Syrian delegation revealed during the D.C. jaunt.

McCain, refused to hear the negative stories about the rebels he’s working to arm and stormed out of a closed-door meeting with the Syrian clergy officials. Held in the Senate Arms Services Committee meeting room, the reunion also included senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. McCain marched into the committee room yelling, according to a high-level source that attended the meeting, and quickly stormed out. “He was incredibly rude,” the source told Judicial Watch “because he didn’t think the Syrian church leaders should even be allowed in the room.”

While this veteran senator continues supporting the FSA, a number of domestic and international media outlets have confirmed that terrorists—mainly Al Qaeda—are running opposition forces in Syria. For instance the New York Times published a piece that reveals Islamist rebels—including the most extreme groups in the notorious Al Nusra Front, an Al Qaeda-aligned force—are running the show in Syria. “The Islamist character of the opposition reflects the main constituency of the rebellion,” the story says. “Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of.” A British newspaper confirmed that in Syria “jihadists” are “now the largest and best armed faction in the opposition.” The report goes on to say that the “more moderate elements have become progressively weaker through a lack of supplies and defection of members.”

Violent Supporters
'I'm just a peace loving hippy (who called for Political Revolution). Don't blame me!"

On Wednesday, Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders took the Senate floor to condemn the horrific shooting at the Republican baseball practice just outside the capital city. Sanders was quick to disassociate himself with the suspect involved in the shooting after it was discovered that he was a volunteer for the Senator’s presidential campaign.

According to police reports, James T. Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Illinois, started shooting at the Republican baseball practice in Virginia, on Wednesday. Hodgkinson managed to shoot five people, including two officers from the Capitol Police, and House Majority Whip Scalise.

While a spokesperson for the congressman said that Scalise is in a stable condition, President Trump confirmed that Hodgkinson is dead.

Early investigation efforts have revealed that the shooter was a staunch left-wing supporter.

Bernie Sanders, who lost the Democratic nomination for president to Hillary Clinton last year, said on the Senate floor that he had just found out that the suspect had volunteered for his campaign. Sanders further condemned Hodgkinson’s actions.

“I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice this morning is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign,” Sanders said. “I am sickened by this despicable act, and let me be as clear as I can be: Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.

“Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs counter to our most deeply held American values,” he continued. “I know I speak for the entire country in saying that my hopes and prayers are that Rep. Scalise, congressional staff and the Capitol Police officers who were wounded make a quick and full recovery. I also want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to prevent further harm.”

Sanders’ campaign’s former communications head, Michael Briggs, told a local news station that, “our computer records show that he volunteers for one debate watch party in Iowa. He was not on the payroll. We never interacted with him. I talked to people on the Iowa campaign this morning who have never heard of him.”

The annual congressional baseball game went ahead as scheduled, and took place on Thursday evening.

Useless Sign
Without a strong right to bear arms, we are all sitting congressmen, er, ducks...

Dana Loesch, host on TheBlaze TV, while on a show with Martha MacCallum on Fox News, debated with gun control advocate Mark Glaze following the horrific shooting on Republican members of Congress at a baseball practice in Virginia.

“First and foremost,” Loesch began, “obviously our prayers are with Congressman Scalise and those individuals who were wounded in this attempted political assassination. And bravo to the Capitol Hill Police who as you heard other congressional members say, if Representative Scalise had not been on that field, with those two officers who are afforded to him as a perk of being a member of leadership there in the Republican Party in the house, they would have been sitting ducks. All they would have had was their gloves and their baseball bats with which to defend themselves which seems, it’s amazing to me.”

“This isn’t a gun issue,” Loesch declared. “The good guys saved the day. Guns save lives. That’s what the story proved.”

“But furthermore, this isn’t an issue, Martha, about firearms,” she continued. “This is an issue about rhetoric. Martha, this is an issue about a guy who has been feeding off the poison that has been coming from comedians and Shakespeare plays of assassinating presidents that are playing in the park.”

“This has been coming from vitriolic rhetoric from the DNC chair,” she added, “and the California Democrat Party who say ‘blank the Republicans, they don’t care about you.’ And individuals like this feed off of this poison, and what’s the result? The result is that these four individuals, their lives were, five individuals now, they were affected by this, and we could have lost a loyal public servant, a husband and father.”

“Well you know politics may have had something to do with what happened today,” Glaze admitted. “But for context, in San Francisco today, four people were killed in a U.S. postal service facility, or a UPS facility, tomorrow, 93 more Americans are going to be killed with guns, and the next day, and the next day.”

“And by the way,” he continued, “the way people in the United Kingdom do politics makes it look like patty cake here in America, but we have 25 times the gun murder rate of people in every other Western country and the reason is, we will give guns to just about anybody. We have to address that.”

MacCallum then indicated that Virginia has quite relaxed gun laws. She asked Loesch why she thought that was a strong argument to explain gun violence.

“No, no,” Loesch responded, “I would obviously have to disagree with the statements. And first off, I think it’s kinda silly to compare us to the U.K., specifically because they also classify crimes differently, and we could get into the weeds all day on that, and I welcome any, all and all debate on that, and I’ll be there anytime anywhere.”

“But with that point, what happened in San Francisco is also awful,” she continued, “but I want to point out that the CDC report commissioned by former President Obama in 2013 just proved what we all knew: it’s that defensive gun use by law-abiding Americans, Martha, greatly outweighs criminal abuses. I definitely don’t want anybody to be made a sitting duck just because the only argument is that a criminal may abuse something that they have every right to possess. Guns save lives, and guns saved the lives in Alexandria, Virginia.”

Glaze counter-argued with more facts and figures about gun violence in America. “Last year and just about every year in America,” he said, “we have some where around 32,000 gun murders and we have about 214 justifiable homicides. Everybody sort of knows that there’s a public health epidemic around guns, and you know we through out this claim that self-defense is a significant factor in America, it’s just not.”

“What’s the number for how many people’s lives are saved by someone who steps in with a gun?” MacCallum interrupted.

“Well, we don’t know,” Glaze responded, “part of the reason is that the NRA won’t let us do the research.”

“We do! That’s a lie!” Loesch interjected. “That’s an absolute lie. [The] CDC report commissioned in 2013 proved it was anywhere from 2.1, actually 500,000 to 2.3 million instances annually, so don’t lie and say that the NRA stood in the way of that. It disrupts your narrative, and you refuse to acknowledge it, and at the same time you’ve had the audacity to claim that you’re for gun safety.”

Commissioned by the Obama administration, the CDC report released in 2013, determined that self-defense “can be an important crime deterrent.”

Pervert Alert
Uh, I'm gonna need some time alone to study this "law" more in depth.

Rhode Island Democratic Rep. Ramon Perez, publicly admitted that he gave his colleagues a Wikipedia document by accident, which showed screenshots of web browser tabs with pornographic websites open.

Last Wednesday, Perez provided the House Finance Committee members, printed handouts of the article to back his push to get the bill passed.

While no images, pornographic or of the websites, were seen, the Providence Journal reported that the document showed multiple browser tabs, showing that offensive websites were still open. A reference to teenagers, and the word “MILF” could be clearly seen in the screenshot.

Perez, however, spoke to Providence Journal, and said that he is “not a pervert.”

“I made a big mistake of trusting too much in people,” he said. “I know people in here don’t believe me. They say that’s the excuse everybody makes. But I think it is a possibility because I don’t check that page … that stupid page.”

Furthermore, Perez also admitted his mistake to a local news station, saying he was “extremely” embarrassed. However, he went on to clear his position, claiming that the document was given to him by a friend whom he had asked to research on the information he was looking for.

Members of the House Finance Committee saw the browser tabs as soon as they received the document, however, a clerk recalled the docs immediately. Perez told the news station that he submitted a fresh, clean document the very next day.

“Now I think everyone is looking at me differently,” Perez told WPRI about the incident. “I have never dealt with a situation like this before.”

Last Friday, Perez posted on Facebook, claiming that the whole incident was an oversight. He then deleted his account.

NSA Leaker
Try 'hacking' through the bars of your prison cell, leaker!

The Department of Justice recently announced in a statement, the charges against a government contractor who allegedly leaked classified documents to the media. The statement also reveals how they eventually caught her.

“A criminal complaint was filed in the Southern District of Georgia today charging Reality Leigh Winner, 25, a federal contractor from Augusta, Georgia, with removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet, in violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 793(e),” it read.

“On or about May 9, Winner printed and improperly removed classified intelligence reporting, which contained classified national defense information from an intelligence community agency, and unlawfully retained it,” the statement explained. “Approximately a few days later, Winner unlawfully transmitted by mail the intelligence reporting to an online news outlet.”

The media has since noted that the government only seems to have caught her after the said news outlet asked for a comment about their story, but in an apparent mistake provided the government with the original documents.

“The U.S. Government Agency examined the document shared by the News Outlet and determined the pages of the intelligence reporting appeared to be folded and/or creased, suggesting they had been printed and hand-carried out of a secured space,” the complaint read.

Hence, because of the crease in the paper, officials knew they had to look for people who had printed the document and taken it out of the “secured space” physically. After discovering six individuals who had printed the document, they found that one had sent emails to the news outlet.

Winner was suspected to have leaked the highly classified document to The Intercept, which then ran a story based on the report, talking about how US intelligence authorities had monitored hundreds of hacking attempts before the 2016 presidential election.

“The top-secret National Security Agency document, which was provided anonymously to The Intercept and independently authenticated, analyzes intelligence very recently acquired by the agency about a months-long Russian intelligence cyber effort against elements of the U.S. election and voting infrastructure. The report, dated May 5, 2017, is the most detailed U.S. government account of Russian interference in the election that has yet come to light.”

Since taking over the White House, the Trump administration has been a victim of constant leaks that have become a major problem for the president and his agenda.

Wipe that smug look off your face, or a Tomahawk missile will do it for you!

A Louisiana Republican congressman took to Facebook to show his anger towards radical islamic terrorists; calling for terrorists to be wiped off the face of the earth, no matter where they are and which country they belong to.

Representative Clay Higgins posted a statement on Facebook, which has since received over a thousand comments and about 3000 reactions. He wrote:

“The free world… all of Christendom… is at war with Islamic horror. Not one penny of American treasure should be granted to any nation who harbors these heathen animals. Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter. Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied. Every conceivable measure should be engaged to hunt them down. Hunt them, identify them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.”

Higgins, locally popular as “Cajun John Wayne,” is a former police chief. He has also hosted crime shows in the past, where he called criminals “thugs,” “animals” and “heathens.”

When Higgins resigned from his position in law enforcement, he said Jesus was the reason behind his decision.

“I begin each day on bended knee, but I kneel to our savior,” Higgins said in 2016 when announcing his resignation from the police force. “I will not kneel to violent street gangs, I will not kneel to murderers or the parents who raised them. I will not kneel to a discredited wannabe black activist that doesn’t really have the best interest of his people in mind. I will not kneel to bureaucrats from Washington, Baton Rouge or anywhere else. I would die rather than sacrifice my principles. If I would sacrifice my life for my principles, surely you understand I must sacrifice my job.”

In a statement to Baton Rouge’s The Advocate, the congressman refused to back down from his comments and elaborated on what he intended to say by “kill them all.”

“We are a world at war,” he said. “The enemy is radicalized Islamic jihadists. The terrorists certainly take advantage of the politically correct madness that consumes the West.”

He further added that there are many people in the west who are “frightened to speak freely.” He continued, saying that he’s never been politically correct and that he calls “things the way I see them.”

“The meaning of candid speech is frequently mischaracterized or misunderstood,” he noted. “This is about prioritizing national security and protecting American lives. Every measure must be taken to eliminate radical Islamic terrorism and the threat it poses to the free world. My only concern is protecting the people that live in my district, my state, and my country. We must stand strong against radical Islamic terror. The fate of the free world will be determined by the courageous, not by the intimidated.”

Scalise Shooting
Please pray for Scalise, and the policemen and staffers who were injured in this attack.

It didn’t even take an hour before liberals on Twitter began their partisan snark regarding the attack on GOP members of Congress this Wednesday morning as they gathered in Alexandria for baseball practice.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, one of the main chearleaders of Paul Ryan and Donald Trump’s American Health Care Act, was reportedly shot in the hip. Two Capitol Hill police and at least one Congressional staffers were also shot during the attack.

On Twitter, @thatgirlfrmOhio was quick to weigh, telling her 507 followers “Many weapons are used to kill people. Republicans have chosen healthcare as their weapon.”

Sergio Dericks (@sergio_dericks) posted “Scalise..Hope you pass gun control when you get better . . . You got Shot by AR 15! Need to ban all Assault weapons!

Note that at the time of this writing, all that was known as a rifle was used by the shooter.

Jen Smith (@JenSmith230) complained by the distraction saying, “Can we get back to covering #ImpeachTrumpNOw? This #Scalise thing is only dividing #TheResistance. We don’t need distractions. #Resist.”

Chris Le (@ChrisLeDC) was more pointed with his post, “Scalise, isn’t Karma something?”

Pratt Falls (@PrattFalls) jumped into the specifics when he asked, “Wonder what Scalise & Capital [sic] Police think about silencers after today’s horrible events? We need sensible gun laws.”

Pratt was referring to the Hearing Protection Act that will lift administrative restrictions on the purchase of suppressors.

Regardless of the political motivations of the shooter, it’s clear that the political Left will use the attack to promote their agenda to restrict gun ownership in America – despite that known fact that the majority of mass shootings in America have been committed by Liberals.

Twitter user C.T. summed up the Left’s judgement with his post:

Sessions Testifies
Sick of the partisan witch-hunt Jeff? So are we!

In what seemed to a pretty intense combative interaction, during Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Democratic Senator Ron Wyden asked him why he had recommended the dismissal of James Comey. Sessions was also accused by the senator of “stonewalling” the bureau’s investigation into Russian collusion.

“I believe the American people have had it with stonewalling,” Wyden began. “The American people don’t want to hear that answers relevant questions are privileged and off limits. Or that they can’t be provided in public, or that it would be ‘inappropriate’ for witnesses to tell us what they know.”

“We are talking about an attack on our democratic institutions,” he continued, “and stonewalling of any kind is unacceptable. And General Sessions has acknowledged that there is no legal basis for this stonewalling.”

“So now to questions,” Wyden said, “last Thursday I asked former Director Comey about the FBI’s interactions with you, General Sessions, prior to stepping aside from the Russian investigation. Mister Comey said that your continued engagement with the Russian investigation was ‘problematic.’ And he, Mr. Comey, could not discuss it in public.”

“Mr. Comey also said that FBI personally had been calling for you to step aside from the investigation at least two weeks before you finally did so,” he added. “Now in your prepared statement you stated you received only ‘limited information necessary to inform your recusal decision.’ but given Director Comey’s statement, we need to know what that was.”

“Where you aware of any concerns at the FBI or elsewhere in government about your contacts with the Russians,” Wyden asked, “or any other matters relevant to whether you should step aside from the Russian investigation?”

“Senator Wyden,” Sessions answered forcefully, “I am not stonewalling.”

“I am following the historic policies of the Department of Justice,” he explained. “You don’t walk into any hearing or committee meeting and reveal confidential communications with the president of the United States, who’s entitled to receive confidential communications in your best judgement about a host of issues. And after being accusing of stonewalling for not answering, so I would push back on that.”

“Secondly, Mr. Comey, perhaps he didn’t know,” Sessions continued, “but I basically recused myself the day, the first day I got into office, because I never accessed files, I never learned the names of investigators, I never met with them, I never asked for any documentation, the documentation of what little I received was mostly already available in the media and was presented by the senior ethics public responsibility, professional responsibility attorney in the department.”

“General Sessions,” Wyden said after some disagreement, “respectfully, you’re not answering the question.”

“Well what is the question?” Sessions demanded.

“The question is, Mr. Comey said that there were matters with respect to the recusal that were problematic and he couldn’t talk about them. What are they?”

“I, why don’t you tell me? They are none, Senator Wyden!” Sessions angrily responded. “There are none! I can tell you that for absolute certainty.”

 

“You, this is a secret innuendo being leaked out there about me,” Sessions accused. “And I don’t appreciate it. And I tried to give my best and truthful answers to any committee I’ve appeared before, and it’s really a, people are suggesting through innuendo that I have been not honest about matters and I’ve tried to be honest.”

“I want to ask you point blank,” Wyden continued, “why did you sign the letter recommending the firing of Director Comey when it violated your recusal?”

“It did not violate my recusal,” Sessions responded loudly. “It did not violate my recusal. That would be the answer to that, and the letter that I signed represented my views that had been formulated for some time.”

“That answer in my view doesn’t pass the smell test,” Wyden challenged him. “The president tweeted repeatedly about his anger about investigations into his associates and Russia. The day before you wrote your letter he tweeted, ‘the collusion story was a total hoax,’ and asked, ‘when will this tax-payer funded charade end?” I don’t think your answer passes the smell test.”

In response, Sessions made it clear that the letter he wrote only represented his views regarding the situation in question. In a testimony earlier, Sessions stated that he would not be answering certain questions to protect the possibility that President Trump may use his executive privilege in the future.
