Flying high

Leave it to a druggie to screw up everyone travel plans. This plane was in line on the taxiway when this clown decides to gain some more altitude before takeoff.
All the crew had to do was open a cabin door and toss this schmuck out onto the grass, then call the Society of Quivering, Sensitive Liberal Rescuers to get him before he reached ambient temperature. Meanwhile, other passengers could have been on their way with only a minor delay.

Passenger’s overdose forces plane back to gate at JFK

A plane that was about to depart Kennedy Airport for Florida was forced to return to the gate Wednesday when a 24-year-old man overdosed on heroin and anxiety medication, officials said.

The JetBlue plane was on the taxiway and about to take off when the man, who lives in Bethpage, Long Island, started foaming at the mouth around 10:50 p.m.

The flight returned to the terminal and was boarded by Port Authority cops Eric Stern and Sean Pomerantz, who found the distressed man floating in and out of consciousness.

The man also appeared confused and was having trouble breathing, officials said.

The officers determined the man was under the influence of heroin and anti-anxiety pills and administered a dose of Narcan, a drug that reverses the effects of an overdose.

The man’s condition improved and he was rushed to Jamaica Hospital for treatment, officials said.

Political Speak

For now the President is making nice with Ryan; that won’t last for Ryan put the skids to him with that ObamaCare Lite piece of crap he was peddling around DC. Ryan has lied to the Conservative faction at every turn. he needs to be hit on the head with the gavel and tossed out of the House chair.

Trump Praises Ryan on Health as Aides Privately Blame the Speaker

In public, President Donald Trump is standing by House Speaker Paul Ryan over the failed Obamacare replacement bill.

“I like Speaker Ryan; he worked very, very hard,” Trump said in the Oval Office after Ryan on Friday pulled the legislation from the House floor for lack of support. Instead, the president pinned the responsibility on Democrats.

Behind the scenes, though, the president’s aides blame Ryan for the bill’s embarrassing defeat, which stymied a Republican goal for more than seven years, a senior administration official said.

Asked whether Trump, Ryan, or the Freedom Caucus chairman, North Carolina Republican Mark Meadows, would be most to blame if the bill fails, the administration official said Ryan. The official insisted on anonymity to discuss internal White House deliberations. [snip]

Trump and his aides were heavily invested in the legislation. On Thursday, Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, took the unusual step of traveling to Capitol Hill to deliver an ultimatum: take a vote on Friday, win or lose. Ryan had sought to carefully build a majority for the bill, and it would be highly unusual for him to call the vote without knowing if it would pass.
Little Choice

Ryan had little choice but go along with the administration’s gambit.

Trump said Friday at the White House, before the legislation was pulled, that Ryan shouldn’t lose his job if the bill went down. He also said “no” when asked if the bill had been rushed or if he regretted pursuing a replacement of the Affordable Care Act ahead of other priorities such as a tax overhaul. [snip]

Ryan could have put the “buy insurance across state lines” and “tort reform” into the bill. He bent over for the lawyers and the insurance companies instead of giving the voters what they wanted.
He lost and that will come back to bite him. He needs to be voted out of the Speakership and even better, out of office.

Conflating insurance with health care

The big shouting match occurring in the House is purportedly over health care. What a barrel of horse piss.
First, everyone has health care, either through their insurance or via the ER at a hospital. What is being fought over in DC is who is going to control health INSURANCE. The Government of you, the citizen as to where, when and how you will buy and If YOU WILL BUY INSURANCE. Not whether the Government will tell you where, when and how much.

The obfuscation by both parties is disgraceful, telling people that they are going to lose health care.

Take It or Leave It: House to Vote on TrumpCare Tomorrow, POTUS Threatens to Walk Away if Bill Fails

Last night’s perceived “breakthrough” didn’t quite pan out as expected today. The House Freedom Caucus showed up at the White House this morning and declined to take President Trump’s final offer, and now it looks like exasperated Republican leaders have seen enough. Rather than allow negotiations to drag on interminably, there will be a vote. Tomorrow. And the chips will fall as they may. As Cortney reported earlier, President Trump has declared that if recalcitrant House Republicans vote with Nancy Pelosi to kill the American Health Care Act, he will walk away from the issue and allow Obamacare to remain in place.  That’s some real hardball, daring Republicans to defy him.  House GOP leaders say they’re ready to yank campaign funding away from members who cross Trump’s wishes, then place the blame squarely on the party’s hard-right flank:

Michael F. Cannon @mfcannon

Sources: House leadership threatens to pull bill to preserve , and then blame House @freedomcaucus for ObamaCare still being law.

Even if you dislike the bill — and I think some important changes (here are a few ideas) still must be made among the way — that assessment would be more or less accurate. Most of the Republican conference is reportedly livid at the Freedom Caucus, several of whose leaders co-sponsored a version of the AHCA when then-Congressman Tom Price introduced it in 2015. They believe the group constantly shifts goalposts and refuses to take ‘yes’ for an answer: [snip]

Remember when Ryan became speaker of the House, his first action was to give Obama everything he wanted in his budget. He then promised the Conservative faction a rework on a bill if they voted for it. They did and then Ryan reneged on his word. After that he ignored the Conservatives in all matters.

Ryan works hand in glove with the Chamber of Commerce (CoC) that never has been on the side of the American worker, from insurance to immigration.

Milk is Now Racist! Didn’t You Know?!

You know the old saying, “Milk does a body good?” Well, it does, and you’re a racist.

Samantha Diaz, a writer for California State University-Long Beach’s (CSULB) newspaper “D49er,” wrote an article this past Monday asking the question, “Milk, new symbol of hate?”

In case you’re not familiar with Diaz’s article/argument, here you go:

The federal endorsement of milk in American diets contributes to the problem by uncritically pushing people to drink milk, despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health.

Diaz references a study that states that 75 percent of African-Americans are lactose intolerant. Therefore, touting the health benefits of milk ignores non-white people, and is intrinsically racist.

“It may not surprise you that the United States was founded on racism,” Diaz added, by way of explanation. “That every institution we uphold has racist roots that are sometimes difficult to catch and even harder to fight against.”

Diaz goes on to argue that white nationalists and neo-nazis are using milk as a form of white supremacy.

Really? Seriously? What’s next? Elmer’s glue and plain yogurt are racist, too, right? Why don’t we just classify anything that has the color “white” in it or on it as “racist,” while we’re at it. And what about chocolate milk? That’s not white. Although, it very well could be white milk masquerading as chocolate milk, and that’s cultural appropriation. Just another form of closet racism — somehow.

Apparently, this all stems from internet trolls finding a Mother Jones article, which Diaz provides no source for (here, Samantha, I’ll do your job as a journalist for you), which asks another question, “Are the U.S. Dietary Guidelines on Milk Racist?”

No! No, they’re not! The crazy portion of the ever-growing liberal population have been trying to prove that white people are racist for so long that they’ve jumped the shark and become the predominant purveyors of racism themselves.

But Diaz takes the Mother Jones article as gospel — particularly the excerpt stating that “milk is non-beneficial to Africans.”

Here’s another little nugget of dumb from Diaz:

Remember that this is the dietary guidelines for Americans. I want to emphasize that last word. These guidelines are for Americans. This means they should reflect the health needs of the ethnicities that make up America which, news flash, isn’t just white people.

Oh, the life of the Social Justice Warrior is so hard, having to alert for every smidgen of politically incorrect language, action or heaven forefend, a impious thought that violates the Progressive dogma.

 

There must be no rest for those securing the ramparts of citizen thought control. The State must be preserved.

Doing the jobs Americans won’t do

How often have the Liberals offered up this as a reason why America needs open borders and unfettered immigration. Is this one of those jobs you, as an American, won’t take?

Two Illegal Aliens Raped a 14-Year-Old Girl In a Maryland High School Bathroom

Two illegal aliens raped a 14-year-old girl in the bathroom of a D.C.-area high school last Thursday, just months after arriving in the country unlawfully and enrolling in classes.

Blood pressure high, yet? There’s more.

According to the Washington Times, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez and 17-year-old Jose Montano lured the girl into the bathroom and asked her for sex. When she refused, the boys took turns holding the girl down and sexually assaulting her in the bathroom of Rockville High School, located in Montgomery County, Maryland, just a few miles outside of Washington, D.C. and the nation’s immigration headquarters.

After finally escaping the bathroom, the girl immediately reported the incident to a faculty member. Both guys were arrested at the school that same day and charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offenses. Montano, technically still a minor, is being charged as an adult.

In a report following their first hearing on Friday, the Washington Post stated that the Guatemalan-born Sanchez has only been in the country about seven months, and is the subject of a pending “alien removal” case.

 The Post noted that immigration officials refused to disclose Montano’s immigration status because he’s a minor; however, he came into the country from El Salvador only about eight months ago. You can connect the dots.

Here’s the real kicker – both of these guys, at 17 and 18 years old, were placed in the ninth grade after arriving in the United States — also known as the grade most 14-year-olds are enrolled in.

According to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, more than 153,000 illegal alien kids have been released to “sponsors” living in the United States since the start of FY2014. Of those, 3,286 were placed in Montgomery County.

Fortunately, Judge Eugene Wolfe refused to grant bond to these guys last Friday, and the two rapists will remain in prison until their trial.

Unfortunately, this young girl gets to live the rest of her life with the memory of being raped in the bathroom stall of a government-funded building by two guys who shouldn’t have even been here.

This is going to be very confusing.
In which bathroom did this assault take place? Were these unisex bathrooms? Or did the males suddenly undergo instant gender identification conversion allowing entrance to the female bathroom. Because of this ID mixup, was this considered a lesbian encounter?

In Progressive States (MD is one), a form either affirming or denying consent is usually required.
Is she racially discriminating against these males because of origin? If the assailants were white, would she have objected to the advances? Has she exhibited racial bias in the past?

If you dear readers, think I’m bulls#!ting with these questions, wait until you hear what the defense lawyers bring up in court. If the lawyers can shop the court for a liberal judge (in that area, a good chance of getting one) that trial will become a circus for the immigration agenda and every kinky educational idea the Left wants to insert in the schools.
She’ll be sacrificed for the greater advancement of the Progressive agenda.

Laissez le bon temps rouler

Skinning the Cat! Another method of making life nice for Americans.
As for deportation, this method works very well. A well trained crew can transfer three per minute across the border and far enough to make it difficult to easily return.

There are many tweets concerning this subjects at the link and a couple of photographs. Happy stuff.

 

4CHAN Message Board Is Using Border Webcams To Help Report Illegals

The largely pro-Trump 4Chan internet message board has recently taken it upon themselves to help ICE agents catch and report illegals entering the United States.

The mostly pro-Trump 4Chan political page is using border webcams to help report illegal alien crossings.

As reported by /pol/’s News Network Twitter account, they just recently discovered that live streams of the US-Mexico border are available via http://blueservo.com/ . The website has become so popular that it has currently exceeded its bandwith at the time of writing this.

4CHAN Message Board Is Using Border Webcams To Help Report Illegals

The largely pro-Trump 4Chan internet message board has recently taken it upon themselves to help ICE agents catch and report illegals entering the United States.

The mostly pro-Trump 4Chan political page is using border webcams to help report illegal alien crossings.

As reported by /pol/’s News Network Twitter account, they just recently discovered that live streams of the US-Mexico border are available via http://blueservo.com/ . The website has become so popular that it has currently exceeded its bandwith at the time of writing this.

One 4Chan user suggested the Administration turn the live feeds into a “game” for users to help spot and report Illegals crossing, potentially earning points. The two screen shots attached to the original tweet purport to show 4Chan users catching would-be illegals in the act:

Many on Twitter have taken to the idea with praise and excitement:

An epidemic of stupidity

Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can’t help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.

Opioid Deaths: Another Drug War Failure

Illicit drug use is an old phenomenon, and Jeff Sessions has an old solution: take off the gloves. “We have too much of a tolerance for drug use,” the attorney general complained to an audience of law enforcement officials Wednesday, promising more aggressive policing. “Our nation needs to say clearly once again that using drugs is bad,” he declared. “It will destroy your life.”

That claim will fall on a lot of deaf ears among the 100 million Americans who have used marijuana — most of whom found it did not destroy their lives and some of whom found it made their lives better.

He is right, though, that tolerance is rampant. A Gallup Poll last year showed that 60 percent of Americans think pot should be legalized for recreational use — as eight states and the District of Columbia have done. Medical marijuana is allowed in 28 states and D.C. But in his prepared remarks, Sessions insisted cannabis is “only slightly less awful” than heroin. [snip]

What we are dealing with is the liberal idea that whatever one wants to do is fine, it’s your body and society has nothing to say about it. That’s an idiotic idea; toss a stone into a pond and those ripples impinge upon everything in and bordering the pond.

People often use opioids to relieve pain. But “individuals with chronic pain and their medical providers may be opting to treat pain entirely or in part with medical marijuana, in states where this is legal,” said Johns Hopkins University professor Colleen Barry, the lead author. Sessions made a point of commenting on this unwelcome scientific data: “Give me a break.”

He paid lip service to “treatment and prevention,” but don’t expect much there. The Affordable Care Act, which the Trump administration and congressional Republicans have vowed to repeal, has been “the largest expansion of drug treatment in U.S. history,” according to Stanford University psychiatry professor Keith Humphreys. If they have their way, we can expect the largest contraction of drug treatment in U.S. history.

Promoting treatment goes against the approach long preferred by hard-line politicians. The most effective remedy for opioid addiction is medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, with drugs like methadone and buprenorphine. But if you’d like to stop shooting heroin, you may search in vain for help. [snip]

Zealous drug warriors bridle at anything except prohibition and abstinence. Closing down “pill mills,” where physicians allegedly over-prescribe opioids, is a favorite option. Such lifesaving measures as facilitating access to sterile syringes and naloxone, which is used to reverse overdoses before they kill, are inherently suspect.

The criminalization of opioid use often has fatal consequences, because it leaves addicts to obtain supplies from street dealers rather than pharmacists. The drugs they get may be surreptitiously laced with fentanyl or other synthetic opioids that are cheaper than prescription meds but much more potent — raising the overdose risk.

Crackdowns have other unhealthy side effects. “When the police shut down a local pill mill, they rarely identify the users and help them get treatment, and heroin and fentanyl dealers are quick to move in to exploit the new business opportunity,” writes New York University professor Mark A.R. Kleiman in the March/April issue of Foreign Affairs. “In 2014, deaths from overdosing on prescription opioids fell, but deaths from fentanyl overdoses almost doubled.” [snip]

If these bungholes want help getting off their jones, let them go back to the person that stuck the gun in their ear and said “TAKE THE DRUGS! STICK THAT SPIKE IN YOUR ARM! They’re the ones to ask for succor.

Frankly, I don’t care if you die. You’re not doing society anything worth a damn.

As for the rope smokers, if you can’t live except by altering your reality, excellent. Stay in your basement, get rid of your driver’s license and smoke your self to death.

Those of you that believe smoking the dope doesn’t impair you, Colorado traffic accidents and fatalities say otherwise. Since becoming legal, the number of traffic accidents involving potheads have gone up markedly, and death involving dope have increased too. In fact, Colorado has considered repealing the dope law.
