Mattis irks leftist media with deadly competency: ‘We’re going to kill them all’

U.S. retired general and Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, has said the policy of the American military now in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq is moving from one of attrition to one of annihilation.

The Leftist media doesn’t like this so much.

The Washington Post in particular yesterday was upset that Mattis is annihilating the terrorists so effectively.  “A military policy run solely by the Pentagon creates confusion,” writes the Post.

One reason the Left is upset is that having a warrior in charge of fighting a war shows how incompetent and purposefully feckless the Obama administration was.

Another reason may be the Left just simply has an affection for jihadis, hence the blind support for an open border policy for terrorists.  Our corrupt media is also now using supposed ‘higher civilian casualties’ as a criticism of the Trump adminstration taking the fight hard to those that want to kill us. “Can’t we just give them jobs instead?” is the Left’s mantra. 

The Koch brothers are coming after bad federal workers

Via Billy

The network of organizations funded by Charles and David Koch see the new law reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs as first step in a much larger vision they have — government-wide reform to strip away the layers of protection that often make it impossible to fire corrupt or negligent officials.

Organizations meeting here for the Seminar Network cheered the VA reform that President Trump signed into law on Friday, and say it could be the beginning of new rules for all federal workers.

"We believe the veterans reform is a blueprint for broader reform of the entire federal bureaucracy that will hold federal workers accountable to really do their jobs and take care of Americans the way they should be," said Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips.

"We're going to be seeking that in the coming years," he said.

It’s permissible in the United States to decorate police cars with rainbow flags to celebrate gay pride, but it’s not permissible to decorate police cars with Bible verses honoring law enforcement officers.

The Houston Police Dept. is debuting a “Pride Car” for the city’s gay pride parade, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Police Chief Art Acevedo is downright giddy about the new rainbow cruiser and the parade.

‘Covfefe’ stamped on US Army Howitzer GUN: You gotta love our military!

Via Billy

President Trump’s famous “covfefe” tweet has now been immortalized on a U.S. Army howitzer.
The gun of an M109 Paladin boasted the president’s mysterious word, as seen in a photo provided to The Daily Caller. A source told DC that the stamp was not the work of the U.S. Army but of an unnamed individual.

Trump’s tweet last month containing the apparent typo set the internet ablaze as speculation raged about the meaning of ‘covfefe.” From jokes about the mistake to fears it was a secret message to the Russians, some even changed their Twitter handles to “covfefe” in a show of support for Trump.

Canadian PM Trudeau just said such great things about Trump that his audience thought he was joking

Photo published for Trudeau on Trump: ‘He Actually Does Listen’

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau praised President Trump as a man who listens to opposing views and keeps his word.

Trudeau’s audience at the Toronto gathering where he spoke on Thursday thought his remarks were rather funny, The New York Times reported.
“No, I can understand the laughter but there’s a lot of politicians who have a deep, vested interest in being right all the time and therefore close themselves off sometimes to facts or evidence or differing opinions,” the liberal leader said at the event organized by the New York Times and the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.
“What I’ve found from this president is he will listen to arguments made. He will look at the ensemble of facts and proposals of impacts you put together, and he will be open to shifting his position,” Trudeau continued.

Lew Rockwell on RT: "Who Invited the U.S. into Syria"?

Via Lunelle

The Extreme Left including "Occupy", the Uhuru Movement, the New Black Panther Party and other borderline domestic terrorist organizations like Anti-Fa have been successful using civil disobedience, bullying and lies in New Orleans and Gainesville, FL to coerce government officials to eradicate historical veterans memorials them from history.

The beautiful memorial to Gen. Robert E. Lee is in a scrap pile in New Orleans after being shockingly removed in the wee hours despite the public's wishes. The same thing is happening now in Orlando and Gainesville. Their next targets are WWI memorials in New Orleans and in Walton County, FL.

They now have turned their attention to Jacksonville and have declared war on Robert E. Lee High School, Jefferson Davis Middle School, Kirby Smith Middle School and J.E.B. Stewart Middle School, as well the Ladies Memorial in Confederate Park, Confederate Park and all other monuments including Hemming Plaza. Their stated goal is to obliterate Jacksonville's history from 1860-1950.

Court allows Mississippi to enforce LGBT religious objections law

Court allows Mississippi to enforce LGBT religious objections law

A federal appeals court said this week that Mississippi can enforce a law allowing private citizens, merchants and federal employees to deny services to lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender individuals on religious grounds.

The three-judge panel on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued the decision overturning a previous decision blocking enforcement of the law, the Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act, according to reports.

The law was signed by Gov. Phil Bryant (R) in 2016. The plaintiffs immediately appealed the ruling, and lawyers say that enforcement will remain blocked during the appeals process.

Thursday’s decision stated that the plaintiffs challenging the act had no standing before the law because it had not affected or injured them, and the panel did not rule on the constitutionality of the law.

President Trump criticized his predecessor for allegedly doing “nothing” about reports that Russia interfered in last year’s presidential campaign, in a recent interview.

“I just heard today for the first time that (former President) Obama knew about Russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it,” Trump said in the interview set to air Sunday on “Fox & Friends Weekend.” “The CIA gave him information on Russia a long time before the election. … If he had the information, why didn't he do something about it?”

CIA chief: Trump is an ‘avid consumer’ of intelligence

Via Billy

The head of the CIA on Saturday pushed back on accusations the U.S. is not doing enough regarding Russia’s attempts to interfere in elections. CIA Director Mike Pomepo also said President Trump is an “avid consumer” of intelligence reports.
“I cannot imagine a statement that is any more false than one that would attribute President Trump of not being interested in the intelligence community. He is an avid consumer of the products the CIA provides,” Pompeo said in an interview with Hugh Hewitt that aired Saturday on MSNBC.
“I’m with the president nearly every day,” Pompeo said. According to the CIA chief, he has at least 35 minutes regularly on Trump’s calendar and the meetings usually run long. He said his predecessor managed his reports to former President Obama “differently” and rarely met with the former president.
“President Trump is incredibly demanding of the intelligence community, asks incredibly difficult questions,” according to Pompeo.

NC The Hammock House: In 1862 3 Yankee Officers Disappeared until 1915

 Image result for The Hammock House beaufort nc

The citizens of Beaufort discovered that, during the night, Union forces had claimed control of their town. Three Union officers came upon the now-abandoned mansion and thought it would make a good outpost. They were sent to inspect the house and promptly disappeared without a trace. It wasn’t until 1915, nearly forty years later, that workmen digging near the back porch discovered their remains.

 Beaufort, North Carolina From the coast it can be seen, a landmark against the sea, guiding ships safely to port. Apart from its obvious historic significance, the large white house is unassuming, beautiful against the landscape, and inviting. But inside the house there are scars of the past, things that a coat of paint or simple repair can never wipe away. Screams heard in the night are only part of the tragic history in this house that seems to devour its tenants, leaving bone-chilling tales behind and bloodstains on the floor.

WikiLeakers founder Julian Assange on Saturday predicted the demise of the Democratic Party.
In a post online, shared by his Twitter account, Assange argued that the party has been "consumed" by "hysteria about Russia," something he called a "political dead end." It is upon this "narrative" that the "party's elite" attempts to keep a hold on power, he said.

"Without the 'We didn't lose, Russia won' narrative the party's elite and those who exist under its patronage would be purged for being electorally incompetent and ideologically passe," Assange said.

Liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy may announce his retirement on Monday, June 26.

That’s the scuttlebutt among both liberal and conservative circles that has been escalating since last month.

In May, author/political consultant Roger Stone predicted Justice Kennedy will retire soon (see video), paving the way for President Trump to appoint his second SCOTUS judge after Neil Gorsuch, who took the bench in April.

Rep. Tom MacArthur got the call late on a Saturday night: President Trump would host a fundraiser for him the following weekend. By Friday, the New Jersey Republican had raised $825,000 for the event.

It's a staggering amount for a rank and file House member, even one with the New Jersey and New York donor communities to draw from. MacArthur said it totaled far more than he's ever raised before for a single event — and that it couldn't have happened without Trump, who hosted the June event at his private golf club in Bedminster, N.J.

In addition to retracting its story, CNN also apologized to Anthony Scaramucci, an adviser to Trump during the presidential campaign and a member of his transition team’s executive committee...... 

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.”
