Victimhood Society: Leslie Jones Goes Unhinged On Pierre McGuire

Apparently, Leslie Jones was mad that McGuire brought up Jones losing to Canada at Sochi

(NY Post) Leslie Jones put NBC Sports analyst Pierre McGuire on notice Thursday morning, as the veteran commentator rehashed painful Olympic memories during the USA-Canada women’s hockey gold medal game.

On notice!

Speaking with Team USA’s Gigi Marvin during the second intermission, McGuire pressed the 30-year-old forward about the 2014 Sochi games, in which the US lost to its neighbors to the north 3-2.

“You’re one of the 10 ladies that experienced the disappointment in Sochi. What’s going to be your message coming out here for the last 20 minutes?” the former exec and longtime analyst asked, via Awful Announcing.

With one period standing between Team USA and Olympic gold, which they would ultimately claim, many weren’t pleased with McGuire bringing up the heartbreaking history, “Saturday Night Live” staple Jones in particular.

“Okay, f–k asshole! Why the f–k would you ask her that right now, in the middle of a f–king game that she’s playing right now?” Jones seethed in a video posted on Twitter. “Thank you. Thank you for putting that in her motherf–king head. You know what, get your ass the f–k away from the hockey player! You know what, I swear to God, I swear to God. See, when I go, y’all lose your f–king mind! What the f–k would you ask her that for?”

A couple points. First, sportscasters do that all the time. This is what they do. Second, Jones wasn’t even on the team. She’s a “comic”. This whole thing of getting completely unhinged in the name of other people is ridiculous. Absurd. Silly.

Just the other day, people were being Outraged on behalf of Jennifer Lawrence, who posed in a low cut dress with slits way up the side. We saw all the typical 3rd wave feminism stuff, people accusing others of misogyny. Only one problem

Jennifer Lawrence WANTED to wear the dress. She didn’t WANT to put a coat over it. Surprisingly, some women really like fashion, and want to show it off. Weird, right? Hilariously, people were still Offended and Outraged even after Ms. Lawrence responded to all the Outrage.

A third point, when people are getting this out of control over something so minor as these things, is it any wonder that some people go the next step and commit violence over minor things? Things that have nothing to do with them? If everyone is now a Victim, if everyone wants to be a Victim, if minor things that we used to brush off now make us Victims, then people want retribution.

Deported Illegal Alien: Requiring People To Follow The Law Is Un-American Or Something

Remember, next time you’re pulled over for a traffic infraction, tell the officer that they’re un-American for daring to enforce the law

ICE IS ‘UN-AMERICAN,’ SAYS BUSINESSMAN DEPORTED AFTER NEARLY 40 YEARS IN U.S.

An Ohio businessman who called the United States his home for nearly 40 years before being deported three weeks ago has hit out at the country’s Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement (ICE) agency, accusing it of using “un-American” tactics to arrest undocumented immigrants.

Amer Othman, who came to the United States from Jordan 38 years ago and had been credited with helping revive his local Youngstown community, was arrested during what he thought was a routine meeting with immigration authorities, according to CBS News.

After being detained for two weeks, the businessman was deported to Jordan, his country of birth, and forced to leave behind his wife and four adult daughters, all of whom are U.S. citizens.

“What ICE has done is un-American,” Othman said, telling CBS he was considering suing the agency. “I love the American people. I love my community.”

Got that? Othman has been here illegally since 1979. The legal battles have been going on since the mid-1990’s.

ICE spokesperson Rachel Yong Yow said that Othman’s case had undergone “exhaustive judicial review at multiple levels of the nation’s courts” over the last decade and that “in each review, the courts have uniformly held that Mr. Othman does not have a legal basis to remain in the U.S.”

He was given time to wrap up his affairs, and deported. Because he has no legal basis to remain in the U.S. But, hey, ICE is un-American for doing the job it was tasked to do by Congress, who passed laws. The only person to blame is Mr. Othman, who had plenty of opportunity to leave the country and apply for citizenship, or even some other type of legal status, but didn’t. This is on Othman.

Meanwhile, in other illegal alien news

Arrests of undocumented immigrants in Boston are up 50 percent

This goes with lots of ICE actions in the Los Angeles area, and, one of my favorite headlines

ICE arrests surging in N.J. under Trump. Here’s why.

NJ.com apparently needs to explain it’s because there are lots of illegal aliens in New Jersey, and Trump is allowing ICE to do their job.

Surprise: Host Family Warned Police About Nikolas Cruz Months Before Massacre

As things like this happened

we had NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch schooling an emotional sheriff

(Daily Caller) NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch lit up Broward County (Fla.) Sheriff Scott Israel Wednesday for apparently missing the school shooter’s litany of red flags.

Sheriff Israel said that there is a possibility his office made a “mistake” in its evaluation of the school shooter who killed 17 people, but argued that law enforcement around the country needs more power to be able to involuntarily treat people who are mentally ill.

“In Florida, we call it a Baker Act. It allows us to take an individual to be, against their will, involuntarily, to go to a mental health facility and be treated,” Israel explained.

Loesch questioned how the shooter apparently did not meet that standard.

“Thirty-nine visits not meet that standard? 39 visits, assaulting students, assaulting parents, taking bullets and knives to school did not meet that standard?” she questioned.

That went on for a bit more, and Israel wasn’t amused, and tried to make it about Loesch, but, hey, perhaps the sheriff could have paid attention to this

(CNN) Just months before Nikolas Cruz killed 17 at his former high school in South Florida, the host family who had taken him in immediately after his mother’s death warned local law enforcement that the 19-year-old had “used a gun against people before” and “has put the gun to others’ heads in the past,” according to records obtained by CNN.

It’s the latest indication of how law enforcement encountered warning signs about Cruz’s violent behavior before he attacked students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day.

CNN was able to obtain records of many of the times that law enforcement was called to the home, which includes

Rock interrupted Cruz and a fight broke out between them, according to the documents. Cruz left the home, and Rocxanne Deschamps called 911. She warned the police dispatcher that Cruz said “he was going to get his gun and come back,” records show. She said Cruz had “bought a gun from Dick’s last week and is now going to pick it up.”

Rocxanne Deschamps told the dispatcher that Cruz had “bought tons of ammo” and “has used a gun against ppl before,” the notes said. “He has put the gun to others heads in the past.”

Exactly how are “enhanced” background checks going to work when the current background checks do not? When people are not placed on the naughty list? When law enforcement fails to act on reports that current gun owners are using them to threaten people? This is not an Old West movie: if you’re simply whipping your gun(s) out to intimidate and/or threaten people who are not a significant danger to you, then you aren’t being responsible, and should be put in timeout, with your guns confiscated for a time period.

Passing more laws when Government is not implementing fully current law is a folly.

For Paris Climate Agreement, Countries Made Promises They Aren’t Keeping

I know everyone is very, very shocked. We saw the same thing for the Kyoto Protocol, where few countries were even close to their goals. This has made the Warmists at the Washington Post very sad that this super historic agreement is a sham

Countries made only modest climate-change promises in Paris. They’re falling short anyway.

Barely two years ago, after weeks of intense bargaining in Paris, leaders from 195 countries announced a global agreement that once had seemed impossible. For the first time, the nations of the world would band together to reduce humanity’s reliance on fossil fuels in an effort to hold off the most devastating effects of climate change.

“History will remember this day,” the secretary general of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, said amid a backdrop of diplomats cheering and hugging.

Two years later, the euphoria of Paris is colliding with the reality of the present.

Global emissions of carbon dioxide are rising again after several years of remaining flat. The United States, under President Trump, is planning to withdraw from the Paris accord and is expected to see emissions increase by 1.8 percent this year, after a three-year string of declines. Other countries, too, are showing signs they might fail to live up to the pledges they made in Paris.

In short, the world is off target.

Really, like most Warmist articles in the news, they aren’t written as journalism, but as blog posts one might find at Think Progress or The Daily Kos.

Doom Today: Seas Will Totally Rise For 300 Years Because You Had A Burger

Or maybe it’s Michael “Robust Debate” Mann’s fault

Here’s what Mann has caused

Seas Will Rise for 300 Years
And the longer it takes to reduce carbon emissions, the higher they will go

It’s a given of climate change that greenhouse gases emitted today will shape the world for future generations. But new research underscores just how long those effects will last.

A striking new study published yesterday in the journal Nature Communications suggests that sea-level rise—one of the biggest consequences of global warming—will still be happening 300 years from now, even if humans stop emitting greenhouse gases before the end of the current century.

What’s more, the longer it takes to start reducing global emissions, the higher those future sea levels will be. The study suggests that for every additional five years it takes for emissions to peak and start falling—for instance, if emissions were to reach their maximum levels in the year 2030, as opposed to 2025—sea levels will rise an additional 8 inches by the year 2300.

“The Paris Agreement calls for emissions to peak as soon as possible,” researcher Carl-Friedrich Schleussner of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, one of the study’s co-authors, said in a statement about the new paper. “This might sound like a hollow phrase to some, but our results show that there are quantifiable consequences of delaying action.”

In other words, this is about government funded scientists backing a government solution to a made up issue.

Within these scenarios, the new study finds that sea levels will likely rise by between 2.3 and 4 feet by the year 2300—and they’ll likely continue to rise even beyond that point.

Of course, this is all just un-scientific scaremongering, because they can’t actually prove this, there’s no control group, and no one will remember this garbage in 2300.

There’s still a great deal of uncertainty associated with sea-level projections, particularly so far in the future, that largely hinges on scientists’ developing understanding of how the world’s ice sheets will respond to continued warming and the physical processes that mold those responses. Recent research tends to suggest that the future may carry more risks than previously suspected and that human societies should be planning accordingly.

Ya think? It’s all guesswork from Cultists, based on wishful thinking, crystal balls, and computer models.

Bummer: Single (Illegal Alien) Mom Is Totally Paralyzed With Fear

Suppose you’re a single mom or dad and make the conscious decision that you’re going to commit a crime. You get away with the crime, but now you’re living in fear that law enforcement will catch up with you, arrest you, then put you in jail, separating you from your kids. Who’s at fault?

A single mom, undocumented, living in the shadows of Ice

Maria – a pseudonym – says “it’s the little details you don’t think about” that make life difficult for her and other 11 million undocumented people living in the US. She routinely sees her three children noticing the differences between them and their classmates. “Other people get in the car, buckle the kids up, put the heat up and drive. I can’t do that.”

In Portugal, Maria was a professional seamstress. A fine career, but she still couldn’t make ends meet. Working seven days a week only covered the basic bills and rent, even with a joint income. Her then husband sometimes worked construction or other odd jobs. “Anything else I grew on my own, like fruits, vegetables … I had animals”.

Portuguese citizens are one of 38 nationalities exempt from needing a tourist Visa. As a part of the Visa Waiver Program, they can lawfully remain in the US for up to 90 days. The family flew to New Jersey in 2002.

Once there, Maria and her family made the decision to stay. She hoped to find a stable job that could afford them savings, and schooling for herself and her daughter. They settled well into Newark’s Portuguese community, and soon Maria found consistent work as a housecleaner through a friend. She had two other boys.

She and her family made the conscious decision to violate U.S. federal law. This is not the fault of the United States and its citizens. We bear no responsibility for her criminal behavior. This is on her head.

Today, she is a single mom of three and her household’s sole source of income. She starts her day at 5:15am six days a week by watching the news before heading to the gym where she works maintenance. It pays substantially better than housecleaning.

How is this gym employing her? She has no authorization to work. Either they’re employing her illegally or she has committed identity theft, which can harm actual U.S. citizens. She claims she has no social security number later in the article, which, of course, is meant to be a tear jerker and tell us all how wonderful illegal aliens are and that we should simply reward them with citizenship for breaking our laws.

Living in New Jersey, and with her ex-husband in prison, Maria feels safe and at home – but the fear of deportation, and being separated from her children, is paralyzing. She also fears for her personal safety. “If I have to go back, he’s going to be there and I’m going to be dead,” Maria says, referring to her ex- husband.

Though she has never committed a crime – in fact, she has filed her taxes every year since 2002 – she and her daughter are on Ice’s radar. The morning after Maria returned home from the hospital, two officers knocked on her door. She let them in.

“I was terrified. I thought that they were there for me. I didn’t think I had a choice. They demanded me to give them my ex-husband’s passport”. She did.

At the end of the day, she put herself in this position. And every illegal seems to have a Story Of Woe (he ex-husband is a nutjob who raped her 17 year old daughter and threatened to kill people). But, this is Not Our Problem. The illegals, like “Maria”, put themselves in this position. Are we supposed to reward 11 million plus illegals with citizenship, or even just resident status, for their bad behavior?

Perhaps we could take care of our own, first. Our homeless, our veterans, our poor, our downtrodden.

Shameless: NY Times Trots Out A “Won’t Someone Think Of The Children” Meme On Guns

Just because some nutjob went nutjob doesn’t mean you get to take away my Constitutional Rights. That’s the whole purpose of the Bill of Rights: it’s about restricting what the Federal government cannot do, not saying what We The Citizens can do. And because the government dropped the ball doesn’t mean you can take away my rights.

People thought MSNBC’s Katy Tur was bad with this one

Well, this is the NY Times Editorial Board, and, regardless of their utter bias, the NY Times is one of the top newspapers in the world

Will America Choose Its Children Over Guns?

As surely as there are camels’ backs and straws to break them, moments arrive when citizens say they’ve had enough, when they rise up against political leaders who do not speak for them and whose moral fecklessness imperils lives. We may be witness to such a moment now with the protests by American teenagers sickened — and terrified — by the latest mass murder at the hands of someone with easy access to a weapon fit for a battlefield, not a school.

Yeah, you’d be in big trouble with a single shot rifle on a battlefield. But, then, the handguns the armed security at the NY Times building are also weapons one finds on a battlefield. And military members carry knives into battle. Do we ban them?

These kids have had enough. They’ve had enough of empty expressions of sympathy in the wake of the sort of atrocities they’ve grown up with, like last week’s mass shooting that took 17 lives at a high school in Parkland, Fla. Enough of the ritualistic mouthing of thoughts and prayers for the victims. Enough of living in fear that they could be next in the cross hairs of a well-armed deranged killer, even with all the active shooter drills and lockdowns they’ve gone through. Enough of craven politicians who kneel before the National Rifle Association and its cynically fundamentalist approach to the Second Amendment.

They’d have a lot more classmates if the craven politicians, and editorial boards, who kneel before Planned Parenthood, did something to reduce murdering the unborn. I’m not going to slam the kids: they’re being whipped up into a frenzy by adult groups. Most have zero idea how the world works. But, they should remember, when you enter the big game of politics, when you’re trying to take away people’s rights, you make yourself fair game. There are some who go to far (such as Gateway Pundit), and have been slammed by fellow people on the Right, but, just because they’re kids doesn’t exempt them from criticism when deserved.

Anyhow, let’s see what the NY Times is proposing

To be effective, any movement needs a realistic program, not mere emotion. Otherwise, it risks coming and going in a flash with little to show for itself. A tighter federal system of background checks is a start, to better monitor would-be gun buyers with mental illness, for example, or histories of gun violence. Such a program should also include reinstating a nationwide ban on assault weapons — a state measure died in the Florida Legislature Tuesday — and ending an absurd prohibition against using federal public health funds to study gun violence.

Um

How about we start with enforcing our existing laws? How about they start properly reporting people to the FBI database as they’re supposed to? A ban on scary looking guns won’t make a difference. It didn’t last time, and won’t this time. However, this is not what the Times really wants

What the young protesters are saying now is: Put down the guns. We’re your children.

How can anyone not heed their pained voices?

What the Times wants is banning guns. And end to the 2nd Amendment. Just because voices are in pain doesn’t mean you get to take away my Rights.

‘Climate Change’ (scam) To Accelerate Wacky Weather In Near Future Or Something

When in the near future? They don’t say

Climate change to accelerate extreme weather events in near future

Heat waves are expected to become more frequent and more intense, if we continue to emit these warming greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The unprecedented extreme weather that we’ve seen over the past year is clearly a result of human activities.

Unprecedented!!!!!1!!!!!

The types of events that occurred in 2017 was long back predicted by the scientists. Warming of the earth and oceans would supply more energy to intensify hurricanes and killer storms, there would be fewer rainfall events, creating more widespread drought. Moreover, more moisture in the atmosphere would increase the amount of heavy rainfall leading to Harvey and Irma like floods that the world has seen in the past few years.

So, drought and flood! More rainfall and less rainfall. Do we need to even discuss their completely failed prognostications regarding tropical systems and “killer storms”, as they dried up for over a decade?

Looking at the unprecedented events, clearly the impact these of climate changes is no longer subtle as the cost of inaction is already far greater than the cost of action. It is sure that soon, the Greenland ice sheet and the west Antarctic Ice Sheet will be seen melting and sea levels will be seen rising.

Things are seen getting worse day by day, we need to do is to take the steps earliest possible in the form of decreasing our emissions and transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy to save the earth.

Day by day! And in the near future, doom! And there was even a handy dandy graphic of what will happen sometime in the “near future”
