Aligned with Sarsour, NYC Mayor De Blasio sabotages AFDI CUNY Protest

It’s one thing to side with the enemy, it’s quite another when you employ the full force of government to persecute and silence your enemies. De Blasio stood with the Sandanistas, “Palestinians” and Castro’s Cuba. He’s a corrupt communist, he knows no other way.

Trump Set To Roll Back Obama’s Cuba Policies

Former President Obama worked to enact several changes to Cuban policy during his tenure in office. He ended the policy known as “wet foot, dry foot” that gave Cuban illegal immigrants a path to legal status, opened travel to the island nation, re-established diplomatic relations and loosened restrictions on doing business in the country.

The left is going to lose their minds. Again. Heh.

Mrs Merkel, speaking at a conference on sustainable development in Berlin, reinforced Germany’s commitment to tackling climate change and said it was vital not to varnish over differences with allies.

Mrs Merkel did not specifically mention Mr Trump but quoted a 1963 speech by former President John F. Kennedy in Frankfurt, where he told the audience “those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.”

Only two people have been prosecuted under Australia’s foreign fighters laws even though more than 40 ISIS jihadis have returned from overseas war zones.

Authorities are reportedly being hampered by a lack of evidence to proceed to prosecution, leaving most of those who fought alongside ISIS in Syria and Iraq in the past five years to walk free back in Australia.

Trump acted like a ‘loud and tacky drunk tourist who steps on others without realizing’ during his meetings with foreign allies, claims State Department official

‘When it comes to diplomacy, President Trump is a drunk tourist,’ the State Department official told the Daily Beast. ‘Loud and tacky, shoving his way around the dance floor. He steps on others without realizing it. It’s ineffectual.’

The official, who has not been named, said that the United States should be ‘out front’ when it comes the Paris Agreement.

Not named because he doesn’t exist.

Memorial Day in a Divided Nation

It has been over 150 years since our nation’s last civil war. Time enough has passed that we have come to associate the holiday once known as Decoration Day with the graves of soldiers fallen on other continents far from home.

It is important to honor our wartime dead. But Memorial Day has a powerful meaning that we have forgotten. It was the holiday that reunited our country after the Civil War. It began when Americans, from the North and the South, entered the cold gray stone fields of the dead, and decorated the graves of the fallen from the Grand Army of the Republic and the Confederacy with freshly cut flowers.

What a day…

Rogers internet and cable is down in our neck of the woods since just after noon today, no idea why.

I spent a good chunk of the afternoon talking to Rogers and our cell phone carrier.

We had to upgrade the cell plan to accommodate the anticipated increased data usage resulting from tethering our computers to our cell phone hotspot.

Boy that was fun. Before upgrading we set up the hotspot and connected only to find we were reaching our cell data limit. We then had to do a rush upgrade of our package.

I am back but the connection is slower than normal, still it is thus far usable.
