Guardian, HuffPost Contributor Karen Geier: ‘Hopefully’ Kim Jong Un ‘Can Drop a Bomb on CPAC’

Guardian and HuffPost contributor Karen Geier expressed hope on Twitter that North Korean communist dictator Kim Jong Un would “drop a bomb on CPAC” this week.

“My thoughts and prayers are with Kim Jong Un today. Hopefully he can drop a bomb on CPAC,” declared Geier on Twitter, Thursday. “Before you report this tweet: Thoughts n prayers don’t do shit… I’m probably going to get put on the naughty stool for this tweet, but I am blocked by most of the conservative diarrhoea train accounts.”

Shortly after making the post, Geier set her Twitter account to private.

Geier has previously contributed to the Guardian, HuffPost, Global News, and is known for making controversial posts on Twitter.

“I am sorry that people had to tolerate Roger Ailes in life,” Geier posted just one day after Ailes’ death in May 2017, while in a January 2017 post, she declared, “PUNCH NAZIS… SAVE LIVES.”

Twitter has taken no action against Geier’s account yet, which remains verified. This is in stark contrast to the action it took against the popular right-winger Clarkhat last week, who had his account permabanned after making a similar poor-taste joke about mass murder.

What Liberals Don’t Understand: A Serious Attempt at Gun Confiscation Could Lead to Civil War

If you want to turn ordinary American citizens into “freedom fighters” against an abusive government, try to take their guns and it will work about as well as anything else you can imagine.

“From my cold, dead hands!” – Charlton Heston

Liberals love to fantasize about confiscating every gun in America. It may be their most beautiful dream. Liberals get control of the Supreme Court and ignore the Second Amendment; Washington makes gun ownership illegal; almost all the guns come pouring in or are destroyed; a few hapless Jim Bobs who won’t get in line get shot up by the cops and then the government is free to do anything it wants and if people don’t like it, well, what are they going to do about it without guns?

Let me suggest a less happy, but probably more accurate version of how an attempt at gun confiscation would likely go. Liberals get control of the Supreme Court and ignore the Second Amendment followed by Washington making gun ownership illegal. So far, so good, right? Then the vast majority of police departments across the country refuse to do more than accept weapons that are turned in and, of course, very few citizens actually hand over their weapons. At this point, D.C. would have no choice other than to accept that gun confiscation is impossible, which would be the most likely outcome.

It’s ‘Unequivocal’ Hillary’s Team Colluded with Russians, Lewandowski Says

President Donald Trump’s former election chief declares ‘there’s one campaign and only one campaign’ that participated in collusion.

“There’s one campaign and only one campaign” that colluded with Russians in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and it wasn’t President Donald Trump’s, Corey Lewandowski claimed during a Monday interview on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“It’s very clear. I was there before Donald Trump ever came down that escalator. We never colluded with Russians,” said Lewandowski, who managed the Trump campaign in its early months. “There’s one campaign and only one campaign that has admitted to taking $5 million of their campaign money, going and hiring a British spy to go and put a false dossier together — and it’s the Clinton campaign.”

Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign committee and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) paid Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the Trump-Russia dossier, characterized by former FBI Director James Comey as “salacious and unverified.” The payments went through a Washington, D.C., law firm with strong Democratic ties.

Johan Norberg (born 27 August 1973) is a Swedish author and historian. He regards himself as a classical liberal. He is arguably most known as the author of “In Defense of Global Capitalism” (2001) and as a fellow of the Cato institute. In this clip, he talks about the myth of Swedish socialism.

Poll: Obama ‘worst president’ since World War II

In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Barack Obama the worst president since World War II. Only 8% named Obama as the best president. How the 12 post-war presidents fared:

President Obama has topped predecessor George W. Bush in another poll, but not one he would like.

In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Obama the worst president since World War II, and 28% put Bush at the bottom of post-war presidents.

“Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Of course, Obama and Bush are the most recent presidents; historians will tell you that it takes decades to truly measure an individual president’s performance.

Ronald Reagan topped the poll as the best president since World War II, with 35%. He is followed by presidents Bill Clinton (18%) and John F. Kennedy (15%).

Obama received only 8% in the best presidents poll.

‘Stop Lying to Us’: Ingraham Blasts Durbin for ‘Tired Trope’ About Jobs Americans Won’t Do (Video)

She said Democrats don’t really care about illegal immigrant workers, and they are more concerned with “remaking the electorate,” even if it’s at the expense of working men and women.

In her “Angle” monologue Tuesday night, Laura Ingraham called out Democrats for claiming that illegal immigrants help the U.S. by doing the jobs that Americans won’t — or can’t — do.

She noted that Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) pulled out a “tired trope” on the Senate floor on Monday when he said that undocumented immigrants are the only ones who will do hard, backbreaking work like manual labor and picking fruit.

“That is offensive on so many levels,” Ingraham said, arguing that there are plenty of Americans who will do the jobs that Durbin “turns his nose up at.”

President Obama’s Anti-White Racism Portrait Scandal | True News – Stefan Molyneux (Video)

On February 12th, 2018, the National Portrait Gallery today unveiled separate official portraits of President Barack Obama and ex-first lady Michelle Obama. Former President Obama choose controversial artist Kehinde Wiley create his official portrait and while the quality of the artwork was widely mocked, the artist’s previous work raised significant alarm. Wiley has previously created several renditions of the “Book of Judith” Biblical story depicting Judith beheading the Assyrian general Holofernes. In Wiley’s rendition, Judith was transformed from a Jewish woman into a black woman, and Holofernes is changed from a man into a white woman. Given the clear racial overtones – why did President Obama choose this specific artist?

Bombshell: FBI Informant In Uranium One Scandal Testifies Against Obama. Here’s What He Said

“I was frustrated watching the U.S. government make numerous decisions benefiting Rosatom and Tenex while those entities were engaged in serious criminal conduct on U.S. soil.”

The FBI’s informant in the Uranium One scandal involving the Obama administration gave written testimony to three congressional committees this week in which he accused the Obama administration of making decisions that directly benefited the Russian government and their goals of gaining geopolitical advantages over the United States.

The informant, Douglas Campbell, told congressional investigators on Wednesday that Moscow sent millions of dollars to the U.S. with the expectation that it would benefit the Clintons, while Hillary Clinton “quarterbacked a ‘reset’ in US-Russian relations” in her role as Secretary of State during the Obama administration, The Hill reported.

Key facts:

* Campbell participated in closed-door interviews with the Senate Judiciary, House Intelligence and House Oversight and Government Reform committees.

* Campbell said that Russian nuclear officials told him that Moscow hired an American lobbying firm, APCO Worldwide, because it was in a unique position to influence the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton in particular.

* Democrats are aggressively trying to discredit him but are having little success as “the FBI found Campbell’s undercover work valuable enough to reward him with a $50,000 check in 2016.”

Pelosi Thanks Illegal Immigrants For Breaking The Law, Says U.S. Owes Them (Video)

“We’re in your debt…”

When she took to the House floor on Wednesday for a filibuster-style speech, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi thanked illegal aliens for having the “courage” to bring their children illegally into the United States.

During Pelosi’s remarks, she portrayed the parents of “Dreamers” as victims who have had to endure much “risk” to bring their families illegally into the country.

“I say to their parents: Thank you for bringing these Dreamers to America. We’re in your debt for the courage it took, for you to take the risk, physically, politically, in every way, to do so,” Pelosi said.
