Trump brushes 'dandruff' from Macron's shoulder

President Trump paused as he spoke to reporters as he stood next to French President Emmanuel Macron and brushed an invisible speck of dandruff off his counterpart's shoulder, saying that Macron needed to look "perfect."

The move brought back memories from when as a teenager, my friend Phil's older brother made a public display of greeting me by tapping my cheek with a fairly soft slap while asking me, "How are you doing, Bobby?"

I never liked the sobriquet, Bobby, and even more, I hated the dominant slap. It didn't hurt at all, but it was Jimmy's way of getting the upper hand, showing everyone around he was boss, cool, not the anal sphincter most people thought him to be. 

He never slapped me hard enough to start a scuffle, but it came close a few times.

Macron smiled without comment while Trump told the media that reports of the US's "special" relationship with France wasn't "fake news," then turned to the President of France and removed a make-believe speck of dandruff from his suit.

It was rude and it made me angry.

"They're all saying what a great relationship we have, and they're actually correct. It's not fake news. Finally, it's not fake news. [Trump repeats everything he says at least once]. It's a great honor, a great honor [see] that you're here, in fact I'll get that little piece of dandruff, that little piece," Trump said, laughing out loud.

"We have to make him perfect. He is perfect. So it's really great to be with you, and you are a special friend. Thank you," Trump said and shook Macron's hand.

Trump and Macron have had awkward physical contacts in the past, most famously, the aggressive handshake ahead of a NATO summit in Brussels last year.

Macron told reporters afterward that Trump's gesture "wasn't innocent." However, he didn't criticize Trump any further.

"One must show that you won't make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either," he told Le Journal du Dimanche in May. 

TrĂ©s  bien.

'Real Indian' challenger against Elizabeth Warren sues city of Cambridge

Cambridge, Mass. -- Sen. Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren is running against an actual Indian, Shiva Ayyadurai, for the Senate.

The challenger describes himself as a "real Indian" [because he is], and describes Warren as a "fake Indian"[because she lied about her heritage. She's as much of an Indian as Rachel Dolezal is a black man.]

But city officials of Cambridge are demanding Ayyadurai take down his signs calling Warren a "fake Indian" and he is suing the city for violating his Constitutional free speech rights, according to The Washington Times. 

Since St. Patrick's Day, Ayyadurai's campaign bus displayed two identical signs of himself and of Warren wearing Indian attire with the words beside the images: "Only a REAL INDIAN Can Defeat the Fake Indian."

The bus is in a parking lot in front of an office building owned by the real Indian and about a mile from the fake Indian's home.

At the beginning of the month, Ayyadurai's campaign received a notice from Cambridge building inspector and a likely Warren supporter Branden Vigneault that the sign did not have the appropriate "approvals and permits" according to local media and Ayyadurai's campaign.

"We will not remove the slogan from our bus," Ayyadurai told The Washington Times. "We will defend the First Amendment and we will fight this egregious attack on the First Amendment at any cost."

His campaign  believes the building code doesn't apply to the signs because they're not on a building--they're on a bus.

Warren has used her fake Indian ploy to secure jobs that actual Native Americans could have secured, including a job as a Harvard law professor and has called President Trump a racist for calling her "Pocahontas."

It's actually Warren who's the racist since by lying about her real heritage, she denied minorities jobs that she obtained.

When she was asked to take a genetic test to resolve her claim, she skirted the issue and launched into a family history about her 'Paw-Paw' and said, "It's a part of who I am, and no one's ever going to take that away."

Yeah, sure.

On the other hand, Ayyadurai claims to have invented e-mail, when everyone knows it was Elizabeth Warren who has that honor.

Maine: House Dems vote to allow for female genital mutilation

The precision tool
Maine -- In a final vote of 77 to 70, the House killed the FGM ban allowing for female genital mutilation. The Democrats have a new slogan in Maine: "We pander to Islam and we're proud we do."

The reason for this disgusting vote has to do with the growing Somali Muslim votes population.

FGM is mandatory under sharia law: "Circumcision is obligatory [for every male and female] (by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is cutting out the bazr 'clitoris' [called khufaadh or female circumcision]-Umdat al-Salik e4-3. Mohammad is believed to have said that it's mandatory. "Circumcision is a law for men and a preservation of honour for women." Ahmad Ibn Hanbal 5:75.

According to Maine First Media (April 19, 2018):
Following swift action from Maine House Democrats on the last day of the legislative session, there will be no Female Genital Mutilation ban in the Pine Tree State.
After months of pretending they wanted to stop the barbaric ritual child abuse of FGM, the Democrat caucus showed their  true colors on the issue late Wednesday night.
By a final vote of 77-70, the House killed the FGM ban in a mostly party-line vote. Rep Cathy Nadeau (D-Winslow) was the only Democrat who crossed the aisle to protect young daughters of immigrants in Maine from this brutal abuse.
 They really should be ashamed.


American Airlines employee jailed for trying to bypass security, yells threats and racial slurs

An American Airlines employee is going to jail for 14 months after he tried to bypass a TSA checkpoint at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, and the cursed and shouted racial slurs at police and airport security after they turned him away.

Jordan Moore, 31, will also serve two years of supervised release in addition to the 14 months he will spend in lockup after a federal judge handed down his sentence.

Court documents said the incident occurred on March 30, 2017 at about 5:25 p.m. Moore attempted to bypass the airport's TSA pre-check line without a boarding pass. He was denied access to the express line by TSA officers.

Moore responded by calling the TSA supervisor a "b****ass n*****" and then threatened to "kick his ass" and kill him, the Charlotte Observer reported.

The undiagnosed idiot then tried to get through two other pre-check lines before American Airlines security agents and police told him he could not fly and ordered him to leave the airport.

As he was being escorted out of the airport by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, Moore used the same racial slurs at the TSA supervisor and ran down a flight of stairs and jumped on a bus.

He returned two hours later and once again tried to get through the TSA checkpoint, proving the level of his stupidity.

A TSA officer who had seen his photo shared with security personnel, asked Moore to wait, but instead, the idiot walked to baggage screening and placed his luggage on the conveyor belt.

"I am not going to do a f***ing thing," he told an agent. "I am going in--just watch me."

Police approached Moore as he tried to continue with his baggage screening.

"You cannot stop me; I am an airline employee," he said to the police, according to the Charlotte Observer

Police tried to remove his personal items from the screening table and Moore tried to grab the bin from the officers. He cursed and told the police, "Don't touch my stuff!"

One officer tried to detain Moore who "violently resisted arrest." Five officers came to restrain him.

Moore pleaded guilty in November to one count of interfering with security personnel. He said he accepted responsibility "for what I actually did," but told the judge he "just wanted to go home" to see his family, find a job and apply to pharmacy school.

In spite of the fact that Moore shouted racial slurs, he has not been charged with a hate crime because he gets a free pass.


Miss Piggy who tweeted anti-Bush bull applauded at arts festival

Randa "Miss Piggy" Jarrar, the Fresno State racist, anti-Semite, anti-white woman, antidisestablishmentarianism, 'professor' of English, who tweeted out against Barbara Bush, was hailed by a local literary community on Saturday and civil rights groups.

The porcine prof sparked outrage after she called the former First Lady "an amazing racist" just hours after she died and said she is happy "the witch is dead."

The proptosis-gifted slob [I can say that--freedom of speech and all that] has since left the country and is on leave this semester.

Jarrar was born in Chicago to a Greek-Egyptian mother and Palestinian father. She grew up in Kuwait and Egypt and returned to the US after the Gulf War in 1991. She studied creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College and received an MA in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Texas at Austin and an MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Michigan.

The adipose Jarrar wrote an opinion piece in 2014 called "Why I Can't Stand White Belly-Dancers" that was published in Salon. She said that white women who bellydance are engaging in cultural appropriation and "brown face".

A UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh criticized Jarrar saying, "Maybe telling people that they can't work in some field because they have the wrong color or ancestry would be . . . rats, I don't know what to call it. If only there were an adjective that could be used to mean 'telling people that they mustn't do something, because of their race or ethnic origin'".

Evidently, Jarrar sees everything in terms of identity: color, race, religion and gender.

In spite of Jarrar being condemned for her anti-Bush remarks, there are always enough haters around to praise such bile. A local Fresno literary festival applauded her each time they heard the mention of her name.

The bug-eyed beauty was to headline LitHop, a day-long literary festival with an audience of about a hundred. She withdrew just days before the event because she is obviously afraid to face her detractors.
"Oooh, I'm having the vapors!"
"I support Randa Jarrar's free speech and I also denounce any violence against her or threats of violence against anyone else," said LitHop founder Lee Herrick.

Of course Jarrar has the right to free speech and nobody has the right to assault her for it, but that doesn't mean she is immune to harsh criticism from those of us who oppose hateful remarks. In fact, it tends to be those on the left who want to prevent conservatives from expressing their opinions. 

I wonder what Herrick would say and do if, for example, Ben Shapiro was scheduled to speak on campus.

I wonder what anyone at the festival thinks about free speech by those on the right. Their record of shouting down conservative speakers leads me to believe that it's only one-sided.

Nunes sees no intel for FBI probe on Trump campaign-Russia collusion

House Intelligent Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes received and reviewed "electronic communication" documents by the FBI and Justice Department regarding the possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia over the 2016 presidential election.

Nunes (R-Calif.) cited the Five Eyes agreement to determine that no intelligence information was used in the investigation. The agreement is between the U.S., Canada, U.K. Australia and New Zealand--they make up the "Five Eyes" or nations that share intel in a closely trusted fashion than in other partnerships, due to years of trust and common language.

"We are not supposed to spy on each other's citizens, and it's worked well," Nunes said. "And it continues to work well. And we know it's working well because there was no intelligence that passed through the Five Eyes channels to our government. And that's why we had to see that original communication."

So if that's the case, what exactly sparked the Trump campaign-Russia investigation if not the Steele dossier?


Four dead, several wounded by gunman at TN Waffle House

A manhunt is on for a shooter who gunned down four people and injured several others at a Tennessee Waffle House early Sunday morning before a "hero" patron wrestled the rifle away, police said.

The alleged gunman, 29, began shooting at customers around 3:25 a.m. at the Antioch Waffle House about 16 miles southeast of Nashville. The coward fled the scene after his firearm was taken from him and he had been initially identified as a person of interest but is now a suspect.

"If you see a nude guy walking around this morning call the police department," Don Aaron of the Metro Nashville PD told WTVF.

The Metro Nashville PD tweeted:
BREAKING: [Suspect's Name], 29, of Morton, IL, is a person of interest in Waffle House shooting. Vehicle the gunman arrived in is registered to him. Gunman last seen walking south on Murfeesboro Pike. He shed his coat and is nude. See [Suspect] Pls call 615-862-8600 immediately.
It was later learned that the 29-year-old hero who jumped in and took the rifle away from the gunman is James Shaw Jr. When he was described as a hero by others, he told the Tennessean, "I don't really know, when everyone said that, it feels selfish. I was just trying to get myself out. I saw the opportunity and pretty much took it."

Shaw said that he was grazed by a bullet and was treated and released from the hospital Sunday morning.

The shooter suspect, also 29, is from Morton, Illinois and a manhunt is currently in progress. 


Iran threatens U.S. with 'this and that' if we exit nuclear deal

Dubai -- Iran's figurehead president Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday that their atomic agency was prepared to rain down "expected and unexpected" reactions if the United States pulls out of the nuclear deal as President Trump has threatened to do.

"Our atomic energy organization is fully prepared . . . for actions that they expect and actions they do not expect," Rouhani threatened. He did not go into detail, because the Ayatollah probably didn't tell him the details, but his speech was carried out on Islamic state television, referring to Trump's possible decision to leave the accord next month.

The nuclear deal between the USA and the jihad state of Iran, as well as five other world powers, curbs Iran's nuclear ambitions in exchange for sanction relief.

Trump said the agreement was one of the worst deals ever negotiated in the history of the universe, or something to that effect. In January, he sent an ultimatum to France, Germany and Britain telling them they must agree to fix what he sees as the deal's flaws or he would refuse to extend the critical U.S. sanctions relief that are currently in place. 

The deadline is May 12th.

Robert Wood, U.S. disarmament ambassador said on Thursday that Washington was involved in "intense" talks with our European allies over the deal, and said the sanctions will be resumed unless Trump decides to issue new waivers to suspend them.

Sneaky Iran claimed it will stick to the deal as long as other countries respect it, but will "shred" the deal if the U.S. pulls out.

"Iran has several options if the United States leaves the nuclear deal. Tehran's reaction to America's withdrawal of the deal will be unpleasant," Iranian state TV said, quoting Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in New York.

Rouhani said Iran intends to prevent instability in the foreign exchange market if the U.S. leaves the deal and the central bank slapped controls on markets.

"This was a preventable blow against any American decision on May 12. They fully hoped to . . . cause chaos in the (foreign exchange) market. I promise to the people that the plot of the enemy has been thwarted, and whether or not the nuclear deal remains in effect, we will have no problem," Rouhani lied.

Iran's currency, the rial, fell to an all-time low over concerns of a return of crippling sanctions and the country formally banned money changing outside of banks.

I don't believe that President Trump is shaking in his Ferragamos.
