For the longest time the left has always had a monopoly when it comes to women’s issues. They are always preaching about women’s rights and how women are being harassed and that should end as with the Me Too movement. Now if you are not a liberal woman you are a pariah. The National Organization of Women (NOW) should change their name to the National Organization for Liberal Women (NOLW) or as Rush Limbaugh calls them The NAG gang (National Association of Gals)because they aren’t for all women just liberal women as seen recently.
When Bill Clinton was president and exposed himself to Paula Jones and she complained to them their response was. “At least he took ‘no’ for an answer.” Clinton later paid Jones $900,000 12 years later.
When Bill pressed his body against Kathleen Willey and stuck his tongue down her throat the feminists said , “Well she was dressed pretty provocatively.”
When Juanita Broaderick presented her case for rape by Bill they said, “Well that happened so long ago.” Juanita has recently been very active with Paula and Kathleen in exposing Bill when Hilary was running and Juanita has a book out describing her rape by Bill.
Recently DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was eating dinner at a local restaurant in Washington DC when a rage-filled activist mob went after her and her husband. The mob are members of the violent MDC-DSA group: Metro DC Democrat Socialists of America. The lead agent within the mob was Ms. Allison Hrabar; who is also an employee of the Department of Justice.
One of the activists who chased Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen out of a Mexican restaurant Tuesday night over the Trump administration’s immigration policies is an employee of the Department of Justice, The Daily Caller News Foundation has confirmed.
Members of the Washington, D.C., chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America crashed Nielsen’s meal with a demonstration full of chants and other outbursts.
One of those participants, Allison Hrabar, actually works for the Trump administration — as a paralegal in the DOJ. […] The Washington Examiner spoke with Hrabar Wednesday and she defended her behavior as off government time and a use of her First Amendment rights.
“If you see these people in public, you should remind them that they shouldn’t have peace,” she told The Examiner. “We aren’t the only ones who can do this. Anyone who sees Kirstjen Nielsen at dinner, anyone who sees anyone who works at DHS and ICE at dinner can confront them like this, and that’s what we hope this will inspire people to do.”
[…] Hrabar has worked at the DOJ since July 2016. Prior to that, she was a student at the selective Swarthmore College where tuition runs over $50,000 annually. She previously attended a charter school in Arizona.
Many people often wonder what happens to young, generally over-indulged, activists who don’t think about the logical consequences to their actions. It is likely anytime a prospective employer does a background check on Allison Hrabar they will encounter hundreds of headlines surrounding this event. Her career options are likely gone as a direct result.
Perhaps her Arizona family is independently wealthy and able to compensate Allison Hrabar for the loss in future employment or career advancement.
A few minutes of gleeful fist-pumping joy plays well with the political comrades, but the ultimate end results, the life-consequences, are rarely thought through.
This was followed the next morning when a group of protesters gathered outside Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s Virginia townhouse Friday morning, chanting “no justice, no sleep” and blaring audio of immigrant children crying.
About two dozen protesters with the progressive group CREDO Action chanted with megaphones, waved signs that read “child snatcher” and played the ProPublica audio clip of immigrant children being separated from their parents at the border, HuffPost reported.
Ms. Nielsen was forced to walk by protesters shouting “Shame!” when she left her house, according to video posted on social media. One man shouted, “You belong in the Hague!” and, “You’re a modern-day Nazi!” as Ms. Nielsen entered her vehicle and left.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Saturday that she was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant because she works for President Trump.
“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so,” Mrs. Sanders said through her Twitter account Saturday.
As Sarah and her husband went home, but the other members of her family strolled over to the restaurant across the street. The owner Stephanie Wilkinson even stalked them as they walked to the next restaurant and continued harassing them and organized a protest at that restaurant across the street, Sarah’s father Mike Huckabee told Laura Ingraham on her radio show. The irony about that is that Sarah’s in-laws are liberal and not Trump supporters..
“I guess we’re heading into an America with Democrat-only restaurants, which will lead to Republican-only restaurants,” tweeted Ari Fleischer, who served as a White House press secretary under President George W. Bush. “Do the fools who threw Sarah out, and the people who cheer them on, really want us to be that kind of country?
Today during her first press briefing since the Red Hen incident, Sarah Sanders revealed that a “Hollywood actor” encouraged other fascist liberals to kidnap her kids. I’m assuming here that she’s referring to washed up anti-American hack Peter Fonda because of this now deleted tweet where he said “they should take her children away and deport her to Arkansas.”
Florida State Attorney General Pam Bondi was forced to leave a screening of a Mr. Rogers documentary after she was bullied, harassed, and chastised by protesters.Pam Bondi attempted to attend a screening of the Mister Rogers documentary a day after announcing her plan to end protections for health care consumers with pre-existing conditions.
Ironically, the documentary was about tolerance and anti-bullying. The problem for Bondi, though, was her public stance on Obamacare is not one that is supported by liberals — so they attacked her.
“We were in a movie about anti-bullying and practicing peace and love and tolerance and accepting of people for their differences,” Bondi said of the situation.
Attacking women has apparently become en vogue for liberals.
Just a few weeks ago, someone threw a drink at conservative pundit Tomi Lahren while she was leaving a restaurant with her parents.
Late night TV host Smantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a feckless c**t on TV.
All women. All attacked by liberals.
Now low IQ member of Congress Maxine Waters gave a flaming rhetoric speech telling people to continue harassing Trump officials wherever you see them blaming them for the situation with immigrant kids when it was started under Obama.
The California Democrat called on supporters to pester and shame officials after a Virginia restaurant owner refused to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said.
Trump tweeted back : “Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party,” Trump tweeted. “She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!”
It doesn’t stop with just women, now these unhinged left wing nuts are going after children. In a desperate attempt to avoid fading into obscurity, Hollywood D-list comedian Tom Arnold said he plans to show up at Barron Trump’s school to harass the 12-year-old and his mother when the first lady drops him off in the mornings. “We’re going to make you uncomfortable,” Arnold promised.
Peter Fonda tweeted that Barron should be ripped from his mother’s arms and put in a cage full of pedophiles, A TV writer from Canada threatened Donald trump Jr.’s four year old daughter. They later apologized and deleted their tweet, but the damage was already done and their real selves revealed. This is all because these dems have lost an election and see Donald Trump winning and succeeding in everything he’s doing while they have nothing to offer. It just flips them out and someone is going to get seriously hurt or killed from all this hateful rhetoric and it will be on their heads. Remember it was just last year Steve Scalise was shot at a baseball game by a deranged madman suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. There are plenty of deranged people running around loose out here on both sides.
A C-SPAN caller from Virginia said on Monday that someone might burn down the Red Hen, a restaurant that asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave when she visited over the weekend.
“What did you think about her being asked to leave in the first place?” host Pedro Echevarria asked.
“Like I said, I think she should be happy,” the Republican caller identified as Frank replied. “You’ve got stupid garden implements like the woman that owns [the Red Hen] and like [California Democratic Congresswoman] Maxine Waters. It’s crazy that people like that are ever put in any kind of authority.
Frank’s insults turned from expected political flame throwing to something much more sinister.
“Please keep us informed on what happens to that restaurant in case somebody decides to burn it down for her,” Frank concluded.
I guess the party of peace and love has now become the party of hate and rage.
Give me your tired, your poor, your humble masses yearning to be free—written on the Statue of Liberty.
That saying on the Statue of Liberty was true for many, many decades, but not anymore. This is no longer immigration, this is an invasion to take advantage of our wealth, culture and resources. As radio talk show host Michael Savage recently said, “The lifeboat is full.” I think it is tipping over.If a million, or more, armed men crossed our border, or any border, it would be considered an invasion, yet if the same number of men, women and children illegally cross our borders, unarmed, seeking our wealth and playing upon our kindness, we are expected, by the Leftists, to welcome them with open arms.
The waves of illegal immigrants entering the USA are an invasion. These illegal immigrants seek to benefit from the generous social welfare benefits handed out to them. Few of them are fleeing persecution. Most are simply economic migrants looking for a better life.
These democrats want open borders. Where many Americans see illegal intruders, Democrats see future voters. Hilary said she wants a “hemispheric government” which would mean Mexico, the U.S. and Canada would be one big country. Add to that Obama once said “the only way to stop terrorism was to open the borders” which means a one world government. George Soros’ plan. Soros donated heavily to both Hilary and Obama.WIKILEAKS RELEASE : Hillary Calls For The End of The U.S. and One Ã¢ÂÂHemispheric
The Globalist/Leftists want them to come here to swell the ranks of voters on their side. That is the plan they openly admit to, yet there is a darker side to their plan. The Far Left, funded by George Soros and other moneyed Globalist Oligarchs, has as one of its goals the destruction of the USA from the inside, by overwhelming the social welfare system, the hospitals, the criminal justice system and the educational system
The Open Borders plan is simply a plan to eliminate National Sovereignty, which stands in the way of the Globalist One World Utopia. National Sovereignty must be eliminated if their Utopia is to be achieved. Any individual, or group, opposed to their Globalist Utopia must be marginalized or destroyed. Since they are not moral people, they use immoral means to gain their objectives. They promote every kind of perversion and debauchery. They have no compulsion against lying, or destroying the lives of those who oppose them through deception. They seek to win, at all costs.
Consider since 2016, some 110,000 children have entered the U.S. illegally and been released, along with 200,000 Central American families caught sneaking across the border.
Reflecting its frustration, the White House press office declared:
“We can’t deport them, we can’t separate them, we can’t detain them, we can’t prosecute them. What (the Democrats) want is a radical open-border policy that lets everyone out into the interior of this country with virtually no documentation whatsoever.”
And with 11,000 kids of illegal immigrants in custody and 250 more arriving every day, we could have 30,000 in custody by summer’s end.
The existential question, however, thus remains: How does the West, America included, stop the flood tide of migrants before it alters forever the political and demographic character of our nations and our civilization?
The U.S. Hispanic population, already estimated at nearly 60 million, is predicted to exceed 100 million by 2050, just 32 years away.
In an article appearing in the Washington Times said Administration officials have requested the Pentagon to begin plans to house upwards of 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children at various military installations across the U.S.
The request by officials at the Department of Health and Human Services was sent to the Defense DepartmentThursday, shortly before defense officials notified congressional lawmakers on the move, a Pentagon official said.
The official could not confirm whether three military bases in Texas — Fort Bliss, Dyess Air Force Base and Goodfellow Air Force Base — and Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas would be tapped to house the children, who had been separated from their migrant parents after they were deported for entering the U.S. illegally.
HHS officials had reportedly conducted site visits to the four locations in the days leading up to the department’s request to the Pentagon, according to the Washington Post. Defense Department leaders have yet to set a timeline as to how soon the children, currently being housed in temporary shelters along the U.S. southern border, could be relocated to the military facilities, the official said.
However, the effort is now a top priority for Defense Secretary James Mattis and other senior military leaders, the official added.
Roughly 2,500 children have been under the care of the Department of Homeland Security after being forcibly separated from their parents at the U.S. southern border, as part of the Trump White House’s zero tolerance immigration policy. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump signed an executive order ending the separations of migrant parents and children, amid growing pressure both at home and abroad to abandon the policy.
On Wednesday, Mr. Mattis told reporters the Pentagon would support any request from the administration on dealing with migrant issues along the border, noting the Defense Department had carried out similar humanitarian operations in the past.
“We have housed refugees. We have house people thrown out of their homes by earthquakes and hurricanes. We do whatever is in the best interest of the country,” Mr. Mattis said ahead of a meeting with German Minister of Defence Ursula von der Leyen. at the Pentagon.
“We support whatever they need,” he added at the time.
However the Pentagon is reneging saying it will have no role in operating the temporary shelters which would solely be operated by HHS. We are taking much needed funds for our veterans and putting it towards these illegals. They will eventually have to find jobs which will be taken away from our own citizens who need jobs.
I would like to remind Gen, Mattis that these are no longer migrants, but illegal invaders many who are MS13 gang members. During the campaign Trump said Mexico is not sending their best and he took a lot of heat for that statement but he was right. Over 50% of our prison population is composed of illegals. They are not just from Mexico now we have these invaders from Central America coming in.
It’s like when you are pouring a glass of water and you’ve reached the top. You don’t keep pouring as it overflows, but that’s what’s happened here. The melting pot has boiled over and the sides gave way to the flood.
I recently saw this interesting but true comment:
HOW TO DESTROY A DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY
These are the steps needed to destroy a Democratic Nation:
Get Progressive left wing officials voted into office: eg: Obama, Cuomo, Bloomberg, Pelosi, Feinstein, Schumer, DeBlasio, Schiff, Clintons.
Infiltrate College faculty with Progressive (Commie) professors. Infiltrate/Control the MEDIA
Enact “Political Correctness” as commonplace practice
Divide the classes and races, dehumanize police and other Law enforcement officials.
Dumb down Americas youth eg: “Common Core programs”
Lower morality standards via TV, Movies, Radio. Mainstream Homosexuality and Trans- gender lifestyles. Allow/Legalize same sex marriage. (Remember Sodom and Gomorra?)
Overspend Government funds, Bankrupt the Treasury. Cut spending for the Military and give away billions to undeserving foreign countries. National debt 13.4 TRILLION/ WE EACH OWE $60,000.00 (Donald Trump is trying to correct this)
Allow uncontrolled illegal immigration from adjacent countries and foreign radical countries. Which drains our Treasury (Donald Trump is trying to correct this)
Disarm the Population, propose the Constitution is passé and irrelevant today.
Expand the Welfare State, give so called free support to undeserving individuals. Eg: Welfare, EBT, Housing, Medical, Education, FREE CELL PHONES! WHY WORK ?????
THIS IS HOW IT IS HAPPENING >>>>>>>RIGHT NOW! God has to be disappointed in us.
OUR Enemies ARE WITHIN OUR OWN COUNTRY: OBAMA, Bloomberg, Soros, Rockefeller, DeBlasio, Cuomo, Clinton, Feinstein, Pelosi, Brown, Sanders, etc.
On Saturday morning, White House Press Secretary Sanders tweeted that she was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant on Friday night because she works for President Trump. A employee posted this on her facebook page saying : incident at The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia. Sanders was served “for a total of two minutes before my owner kicked her out along with seven of her other family members.”
“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”
Leave it to liberals to be outraged when a Christian baker doesn’t make a cake for a gay couple, but be OVERJOYED when a member of the Trump administration gets kicked out of a restaurant.
Sarah offered to pay for what they had ordered but the owner said, “No it’s on the house.”
Sarah’s father Mike Huckabee came to his daughter’s defense saying: “Bigotry. On the menu at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, VA. Or you can ask for the ‘Hate Plate’. And appetizers are “small plates for small minds”, Huckabee tweeted.
Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia. , just one day after the White House press secretary got the boot, was already giving an interview to The Washington Post.
In her statement, Wilkinson said she found the Trump administration “inhumane and unethical,” which is why she gave Sanders the heave-ho.
“This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals,” Wilkinson said.
Wilkinson said, “I was babbling a little, but I got my point across in a polite and direct fashion. I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation.
“I said, ‘I’d like to ask you to leave.’”
“I would have done the same thing again.” Wilkerson went on, “We just felt there are moments in time when people need to live their convictions. This appeared to be one,”
An employee called Ms. Wilkinson at home when she saw Sarah and her friends come in the restaurant. When she walked into the restaurant, Wilkinson saw that there had been no mistake. The Red Hen is no bigger than some apartments, and the group table was impossible to miss: Sanders in a black dress, her husband, three or four men and women of roughly similar ages, and an older couple,” The Post reported
“Several Red Hen employees are gay, she said. They knew Sanders had defended Trump’s desire to bar transgender people from the military. This month, they had all watched her evade questions and defend a Trump policy that caused migrant children to be separated from their parents.”
So, they asked her to leave. Keep in mind, part of the decision was over what could be construed as Sanders’ religious beliefs — namely, her thoughts on the transgender ban. However, their decision was their decision, and Sanders decided the best way to deal with it was via her tweet.
Can you imagine if Chelsea Clinton was asked to leave an establishment or one of Obama’s daughters was asked to leave because the owners didn’t believe in what they believed? There would be hell to pay and heads would roll. The double standard is unbelievable.
If this whole incident was just about who Sanders works for, it would be bad enough, but as The Washington Post article makes clear, however, this had a lot to do with her views on LGBT rights, something which is a function of her Christian beliefs also with Trump’s opposition to gays in the military.
When word got out about Sarah’s ouster, their YELP site was bombarded with sarcastic attacks on them saying how bad the food was there and how dirty the place was.. Hackers went into their online menu and changed things around.
It will be interesting to see if Ms. Wilkinson’s restaurant goes under now since it caters to the super rich and she has to suffer her losses to her and her staff because of her ungrateful move. She talks about upholding their morals? Sarah is one of the most moral people out there. This woman is bashing her as a reason against Trump from hearing the destroy Trump media which is a pack of lies against him. I wonder if she realizes that thanks to Trump she now only pays a 15% tax on her business instead of a 35% and has a $12,000 personal tax deduction next year if she is single. Hillary was going to raise the small business tax to 41% and she would have to lay off people. I wonder if she realizes that the idea of separating children goes back to Bill Clinton and continued thru Obama. I wonder if she realizes that Trump hires gays and has more women in his administration than any other administration in history. Probably not since she’s just reacting to what the destroy Trump media says.
Sarah showed more class than the owner did. I hope people see this for what it is, hate for the President. Sarah may have a lawsuit for discrimination against the protected class. This is another reason why the election this November is so important.
Winston Churchill predicted it accurately when he said, “In the future Fascists will be known as Ant-fascists. We are seeing that in these Antifa groups today.
They label everyone they don’t like as “fascist” and use that to justify their own violent actions.
Now, Antifa is putting Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers and their families in danger by publishing the names and addresses of ICE agents.
Antifa members claim that their activism poses no threat anyone’s life. So why are they publishing the home addresses of these officers? What good comes from giving this information to the public?
Regardless of where one stands on the border, it is fair to say that the spouses and children that live with these ICE agents are innocent, and do not deserve this unwarranted attention from radical leftists.
Antifa’s recent activities are alarming. They have graduated from protesting conservative free speech events, desecrating statues and private property to endangering the lives of those they disagree with.
I saw a picture in an online paper last weekend about an Antifa demonstration against Christian holding a prayer rally in a Federal plaza (since when was Christianity fascist? Their true colors are shining through) turned violent in Portland, and several of the the male terrorists were wearing full-length black leather trench coats and jack boots. I instantly thought (looking at the picture before reading the article), “OMG, what are SS stormtroopers doing in 2018?” Seriously, who wouldn’t come to a similar conclusion? So, YES, they are domestic terrorists…they were shooting fireworks at police officers and throwing rocks and bottles. What I can’t quite grasp is do they understand that they are dressing like the SS–an elite, private Army who each pledged a blood oath to Adolph Hitler, while simultaneously accusing others of fascism? Is this some kind of dark amusement to them or are they really that stupid. I think they are really that stupid and indoctrinated. And dangerous.
Protesters today like to evoke the words “Hitler’ and ”Nazi’ in their protestations when in fact it is they who are the real Nazis. They liked saying it under Bush, though I could never see the comparison and now they are doing it ten times worse under Trump.
The liberal media has declared all-out war on President Donald Trump, evidenced by their incessant and self-righteously indignant negative coverage of virtually everything he says and does.
The latest outrage for the virtue-signaling liberal media is the “zero tolerance” border policy — based on court precedent set in 1997 and clarified in 2016 — that results in illegal immigrant families being temporarily separated when detained and processed following illegal entry into the country.
That policy from the administration has been likened to the vile and despicable acts of the Nazis, and the media has gleefully perpetuated the notion that Trump and his administration have taken delight from splitting up families and throwing children in “concentration camps.”
There’s just one big problem— the separation of illegal immigrant families at the border didn’t start with the Trump administration, but occurred under the past few administrations as well, including that of former President Barack Obama, but that didn’t stop the liberal mainstream media from blaming Trump for it.
If they don’t want their families separated then don’t come in here illegally.
Someone is going to get killed by their hateful and incendiary rhetoric and it will be on their heads. We are coming close to that now. Recently has been actor Peter Fonda, Mr. peace and love himself, emerged after about 40 years in obscurity with an enflaming tweet written in bold, capital letters which denotes shouting like a raving lunatic which has since been deleted saying “WE SHOULD HACK THIS SYSTEM, GET THE ADDRESSES OF THE ICE AGENTS CBP AGENTS AND SURROUND THEIR HOMES IN PROTEST. WE SHOULD FIND OUT WHAT SCHOOLS THEIR CHILDREN GO TO AND SURROUND THE SCHOOLS IN PROTEST. THESE AGENTS ARE DOING THIS CUZ THEY WANT TO DO IT. THEY LIKE DOING THIS.
Fonda suggested that Trump’s youngest son Barron be kidnapped and locked in a cage with pedophiles, called for Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to be beaten and raped in public, demanded White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ children be taken away from her and called for the stalking and harassment of Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, as well as their children.
Where are all the libs that are supposed to be so protective of women and children?
Melania notified the secret service and afterwards Fonda tweeted an apology.
“I tweeted something highly inappropriate and vulgar about the president and his family in response to the devastating images I was seeing on television. Like many Americans, I am very impassioned and distraught over the situation with children separated from their families at the border, but I went way too far,” Fonda said in a statement.
You were being manipulated by the destroy Trump media Peter,but you wouldn’t know that since you probably agree with them.
In true Nazi fashion these protesters deny people their freedoms and disturb the peace of private and public citizens. They recently went into a restaurant where Homeland security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was dining and started yelling ”shame on you” to her. They also gathered outside her home and yelled epithets at her.
Sarah Sanders went to a restaurant in Virginia with some friends and when the waiter approached her to take their order the manager asked them to leave and threw them out.
These protesters call the people they protest against Nazis? They should look in the mirror. And to think this all started because they lost an election and still can’t get over it. I see two names in back of all of this, Soros and Obama.
The law of quantum physics says you can’t go back in time, but for people like me who grew up in the 60’s the Happy Together Tour is the next best thing. The tour consists of such great 60’s artists as The Cowsills, Mark Lindsey of Paul Revere and the Raiders, Gary Pucket of the Union Gap, The Association, Chuck Negron of Three Dog Night and Flo and Eddie (Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan) of the Turtles. They were all backed by a four piece band of outstanding musicians consisting of bass guitar, lead guitar, drums and keyboards. All of these artists are in their late 60’s and early 70’s and look and sound great and each did all of their hits to standing ovations and great applause by the audience at Englewood Performing Arts Center in Englewood, N.J. If music keeps you young then play on. The bands performed to flashing ,swirling 60’s designs on screens in back of them along with films of them then so you could compare them then and now. Very interesting concept. This is the fifth year in a row I’ve seen the tour and it never fails to disappoint.
Leading off was The Cowsills consisting of two brothers and a sister. They used to be seven members and influenced The Partridge Family TV show in the 60’s. There are now only three performing (two brothers and their sister) and one brother is touring with the Beach Boys. They lost their mother to emphysema and one brother drowned in Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and another brother died of cancer. They are still a rousing energetic fun group kidding around with each other and jumping around on stage as they do all their hits;”The Rain, The Park and Other Things,” “We Can Fly” “Hair” and” “Indian Lake.” The audience cheered them on and they sound exactly like they always did.
Following The Cowsills was Mark Lindsey of Paul Revere and the Raiders fame. They began to dress in Revolutionary War-style outfits. Mark Lindsay carried the theme a bit further by growing his hair out and pulling it back into a ponytail, which became his signature look.Mark came out in a silvery shiny jacket and dark pants he later changed into his Revolutionary War Jacket as he got the audience cheering and singing along to his hits “Indian Reservation” “Arizona” “Cherokee People “ and “Kicks.”
Following Mark Lindsey “The Association” came out and they were stupendous making jokes about how they couldn’t believe they were doing this for 53 years now. Originally consisting of six members today they consist of Jim Yester, lead singer, Keith Moret, bass player and Jules Alexander lead guitar and singer and song writer. Jim Yester introduced bass player Keith Moret as their newest member being with them since 1972. They did their hit songs “Windy” “Never My Love” “Cherish” and “Along Comes Mary ”so beautifully and note for note perfect that brought back sweet memories for me. Jim Yester explained that when they first released “Along Comes Mary” many stations wouldn’t play it because they said it was too controversial, “Have you heard what they play on the radio today?” Yester asked. ”I thought Ho was Don’s last name,” Moret, who is from Hawaii, said to laughs from the audience.
Next was Gary Puckett formerly of the Union Gap. Gary came out in his Civil War jacket and got the audience rocking to his hits “Lady Will Power” “Over You” “Woman Woman” and “Young Girl” which he got the audience singing accapella on during the chorus part.
Next was Chuck Negron formerly of Three Dog Night. I always enjoy seeing Chuck as he is a riot in his comments and really wails out the songs. Chuck described when he and the band would ride around in a station wagon. He said people today probably don’t know what a station wagon is. “That’s a car where eight guys can fart all at once,” to which the audience roared with laughter. Chuck then went into his hits “one” “Mama Told Me Not to Come” “Eli’s Coming” which he really wailed out and “Joy to the World.” When he was about to do Joy to the World he said the band didn’t want to do it at first because they thought a song about a frog was too silly, but he said, “the frog gets high so that’s a little cool.” Chuck said he has seven grand kids and four of them sing the song in their choir. Chuck is 76 years old.
Lastly came The Turtles featuring Flo and Eddie (Mark Volman and Howard kaylan).I’ve always enjoyed seeing them as they are usually funny and very good in singing their songs and getting the audience involved, but tonite something strange happened and it wasn’t the same as the act leaned towards the depressing.
As soon as he came out Mark Volman said, “This has been a lovely concert up until this point.” As the audience sat in silence Mark said Howard could not be with them tonite since he has suffered very bad heath issues with extreme heart problems and the doctor didn’t want him touring so instead they had Ron Dante of the group The Archies taking his place. As Mark spoke he was breathing heavy and apologized saying he felt like he was going to have a heart attack. I knew it wasn’t nerves from being on stage as they’ve been doing this act for 50 years now and always very lively. I sensed something was wrong. Maybe it was because of his partner Howard being out. Later mark announced he had a bout with cancer. When I saw them two years ago Howard announced that Mark had a bout with tongue cancer, but was cancer free now.
They did their songs “You Baby” “It Ain’t Me Babe” “Elenore” and the audience appreciated it. Ron did his Archies song “Sugar Sugar” while a cartoon version of the comic book characters from the Archie TV series danced to the song on the screen while he sang and played which was cute. When it came time to introduce the band which were all fantastic Mark seemed to forget some of their names and seemed to make it look like he was joking. He even went to Ron and said ‘What’s your last name again?” to which the audience laughed. I didn’t know if this was intentional since these old time performers often humorously make age jokes or if Mark was having memory issues. They ended their performance with their classic song “She’d Rather Be With Me” getting the audience singing and clapping along.
Overall it was an excellent concert and they are appearing in 47 states. If they come near you be sure to check them out.
Check out these great videos of The Cowsills from 2017 and the finale from the Happy Together Tour from 2017
The latest jab at Trump by the left is the situation of kids being separated from the parents at the border. This is being blown way out of proportion and has been going on since the Bush and Obama days. The pictures the media is showing of kids in cages were taken during the Obama years not Trump.Trump is trying to fix this loophole he inherited. The other day at her daily press briefing, Sarah Sanders was yelled at by an unruly reporter for this saying to her loudly and obnoxiously, “Sarah you have kids, how would you feel if this was your kid?” Sarah very politely ,but firmly making him look foolish which he was, told him this has been going on a long time before the current administration.
The left is trying to push this false narrative of Immigrants Seeking Asylum Are Being Punished For Seeking Asylum. This is plainly untrue as well. Immigrants who come to points of entry to seek asylum aren’t actually illegally in the country – they’re not arrested. They’re processed through ICE, and their children stay with them. If, however, illegal immigrants cross the border illegally, the Trump administration now treats them as criminals. If they choose deportation, they aren’t separated from their kids; if they choose to apply for asylum, they stay in the country longer than 20 days, and their kids have to be removed by operation of law.
Jeff Sessions was on with Laura Ingraham the other night and said there are plenty of entry portals where they can come in legally and families won’t be separated. When they come across illegally that’s when we have to separate them to find out if they are really are a family or just other illegals using the kids.
These are the ones they are separating the kids from not the real parents. This has been going on since the Bush years and Obama, but libs are using it to protest Trump.Through a series of legal loopholes, minors are smuggled through the southern border with illegal aliens posing as family units in order to eventually be released into the country through the “Catch and Release” program.Catch and Release allows foreign nationals to be released into the U.S. while they await immigration and asylum hearings through these legal loopholes.
On his show yesterday Rush Limbaugh so eloquently explained saying : They have opened their borders in the U.K., Germany, you name it. So we have a perfect storm all orchestrated by Donald Trump to renegotiate everything, every single little deal with these countries. We are finally deciding that it’s no longer required of us to take one for the team. Trump is standing up for America and fair deals for America. As such, “Economic Growth in the United States Leaves the World Behind.” They have to change the subject, folks. They can’t report any of this. They can’t report on the Gallup satisfaction numbers.
They can’t remind people of the low unemployment numbers. They certainly can’t remind African-Americans that they’re doing much better than they ever have done under any Democrat administration, but especially that of Barack Hussein O. Let’s throw in the fact that there’s actually been a head-to-head sat down with the communist tyrant thug of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. Consumer confidence is racing. They have to change the subject. So what do they do when they change the subject?
Well, they either use the race card, or they throw down the card that “Republicans hate X.” Republicans hate kids. Republicans hate brown people. Republicans hate immigrants. Republicans this and that. That’s how they — and the media is right in on it. And I’m gonna demonstrate to you today that this is a manufactured crisis in the sense that nothing’s new here. This policy has been in place for years and was widely practiced during the Obama administration.
There is a lot of leftwing outrage at Donald Trump for deciding to separate children from their parents at the border if they are illegal aliens. The left, in fact, went nuts over an ACLU report that showed rampant child abuse from children detained without their parents. The problem was that the report covered 2009-2014, a period when Barack Obama was President.
Members of the media who blew up the story quickly deleted tweets once they found out Barack Obama was in charge. Apparently, abused kids only matter if they can be used to attack Donald Trump.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said on Monday that some “well-coached” people illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are using children to pose as families to gain entry.
“From October 2017 to this February, we have seen a staggering 315 per cent increase in illegal aliens fraudulently using children to pose as family units to gain entry into the country,” she told the annual National Association of Sheriffs meeting in New Orleans, the Daily Mail reports. “This must stop. All this does is put the children at risk.”
“We do not have the luxury of pretending that all individuals coming to this country as a family unit are in fact a family,” Neilsen added. “We have to do our job. We will not apologize for doing our job.”
Neilsen said Monday that the children often represent a well-publicized “get-out-of-jail-free-card” that the Trump administration stopped handing out with the adoption of a zero-tolerance policy two months ago. She also said America’s low bar for establishing asylum-seekers’ “credible fear” of persecution or physical harm in theirhome countries.
A journalist at the daily White House press briefing Monday played an audio tape of crying illegal immigrant children while Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was defending the administration’s policy of separating families who enter the country illegally.
Near the end of Ms. Nielsen’s press briefing, while she was still talking, the audio recorded by ProPublica could be heard playing on a journalist’s laptop or other electronic device in the briefing room. The sound of the crying children went on for more than 30 seconds; it wasn’t clear who was playing the tape during Ms. Nielsen’s presentation.
The recording of the sobbing of 10 Central American children, separated from their parents one day last week by U.S. immigration authorities at the border, went viral earlier in the day. The children scream “Mami” and “Papá” repeatedly.
It didn’t appear that Ms. Nielsen could hear the sounds from her position at the podium.
This is all contrived drama by the left and the DNC. Their chances of winning in November are diminishing by the day, the economy is booming, more African Americans have jobs than in the prior 8 years under Barry and the administration is correcting the anti-American foreign policy agenda of the prior regime. So now, so called journalist (Pravda would be proud of this woman) are playing likely fraudulent tapes of children sobbing. How low can the left go depends on the day.
Don’t want a problem at the US border? DON’T CROSS IT ILLEGALLY? Bleeding heart liberals said nothing when Obama did the same damn thing.
Some use it as their way to get in the US. They send their kid on ahead, then after a short period, whine and cry about their kid being here and then they try to get chain migration to kick in. They aren’t doing it for their kid, they’re doing it for themselves.
This went on all the time obama was president but since this administration decided it was going to enforce the law EQUALLY for EVERYONE the media has gone crazy to make this sound like these children are being torn from the arms of a sobbing mother and throw in a shed.
“Get out anyone if you can’t lend a hand for the times they are a changin’ ”—Bob Dylan,1968!!!
When Dylan wrote these lyrics little did he know they would describe the never Trumpers today. So far Trump has done more than any other president ever and in only 500 days. He is truly making America great again as he first stated in his campaign, yet all these Hollywood people and media elites continue trashing him left and right offering nothing and tearing down the country. They even trash his wife Melania who has more class in her little finger than they will ever know and make up wild conspiracy theories about her and him.
After Melania had her kidney operation which was a four hour operation, the media went nuts when she was not out and about the next day. I would like to see them have a kidney operation and be running around the next day. That is a sensitive area of the body and takes time to heal. She even wanted to go to Korea with her husband, but the doctors said no flying for a month.
That didn’t stop the destroy Trump conspiracy media from saying things like she ran off to New York with Barron or Trump beat her and she is recovering with a black eye. I think Melania should become a part of the Me Too movement and blame the media for bullying her and abusing her which they are doing. Trump even said she was walking around the white house working hard doing her job and reporters saw her and purposely refused to say she was walking around. Melania even issued a tweet saying she was working hard on behalf of children while recovering.
Kevin Jackson, black conservative writer for the Black Sphere had this interesting article citing all of Trump’s accomplishments in 500 days. Also Trump gave everyone a tax cut where a single person has a $12,000 tax deduction and a married couple has a $25,000 tax deduction:
When President Trump was inaugurated on January 20th, 2017, 500 days ago he embarked on a journey in helping Make America Great Again.
And it came as a big surprise to most at how much push-back from Democrats and their leftist media tried to stop this from happening.
But despite the ongoing attacks from Democrats, the leftist media, celebrities, establishment Republicans, and a 2-year Russian witch-hunt, Trump has still managed to keep his promises.
Trump’s accomplishments in his first 500 days in Office are arguably the best first 500 days of any president in US history since Washington.
Perhaps the most talked about accomplishment is the economy. Trump managed to wave his magic wand and not only create more jobs for Americans but also bring back jobs that had left.
Today there are more people working than at any time in US history.
If that were the only stat, one might say, “Big whoop!”. But under President Trump the U.S. has set the record for the most Americans in the work force, count them…nine times.
More than 155 million people are working in the US today, and only 6 million Americans are unemployed–an amount not seen since 2001.
Nearly 3 million REAL jobs have been created since President Trump took office and more than 600,000 of these are related to manufacturing and construction.
Want to racialize what Trump has done?
Under Trump, the U.S has the lowest black and Hispanic unemployment rate in U.S history. Not bad for an evil racist misogynist right?
If you think domestic policy is good, take a look at his foreign policy.
Both Syria and Iraq have declared victory over ISIS. And due to President Trump allowing the U.S military to do its job, less than 1,000 ISIS fighters are estimated to remain.
Because of President Trump, the United States leads a global campaign to achieve the peace by the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. Though the talks are still in the works, but only the Leftist zombies believe Trump won’t be successful.
Additionally Trump’s leadership has contributed to the return of 17 Americans held overseas.
In May 2018 Venezuela released one American and North Korea released three Americans who all came home to the United States all in one month’s time.
And the President followed through on his promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
The President also confirmed the most circuit court judges of any President in his first year as well as securing Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the United States Supreme Court.

Yet through all this the leftist media, late night comics and assorted entertainment figures and Dems all criticize him offering nothing in return which is harming the country. As Dylan said, “Get out anyone if you can’t lend a hand for the times they are a changin’
