Tucker Carlson skewers the media’s hypocrisy on Stephen Bannon

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 22:39

Tucker Carlson assailed the media for their obsession with race and identity, and the hypocrisy they had in labelling Bannon a bigot and a racist. He made the comments Friday on his Fox News show.

“A senior White House advisor Steve Bannon got canned today after losing an internal power struggle that had been raging for months,” he began. “Like his now former boss, Bannon was a mercurial figure in a business that prizes predictability. To steal cliches from a hundred different cop movies, he was a loose cannon who didn’t play by the rules. Bannon fanned fruitless controversy with unwise remarks, he specialized in making enemies. The White House will be a much more placid place now that he is gone. The question is, will it be a better place?”

“Let’s put it this way,” he added, “Bannon was one of the relatively few senior staff in the white house who wouldn’t feel at home in a Hillary Clinton administration. Indeed, he was one of the rare republicans there and the only, or one of the very few, populist conservatives.”

“That’s strange,” he noted, “since populist conservatism is the platform his boss ran on. Like Trump the candidate, Bannon was willing to criticize big Republican donors in their ideological stranglehold on a corrupt GOP establishment. He was able to break with orthodoxy in big and dramatic ways, calling for higher taxes on the investor class, better infrastructure, fewer pointless wars around the world, and more.”

“Bannon understood that the country’s greatest crisis isn’t Robert E. Lee statues but the steady economic and moral decline of its once robust middle-class,” he continued. “Not surprisingly, traders on Wall Street cheered when he got fired this afternoon. The Dow shut up 100 points on the news. Lobbyists in Washington will be celebrating late into the night.”

“The funny thing is, that in some important ways, Steve Bannon was more traditionally liberal than the liberals who spent the last year shrieking for his head,” Carlson continued. “Not that you would know that from the coverage, everything is identity politics now, so his ideological opponents attacked Bannon from the very beginning as a bigot.”

“It was always a ludicrous charge,” he added. “Bannon is a flawed guy, but not in that way. Just yesterday he called white nationalists ‘buffoons and losers.’ It’s not Steve Bannon who is obsessed with race and identity, it’s the activist left and the morons who do their bidding in the media.”

— Fox News (@FoxNews) August 19, 2017

“There was never any real attempt in the press to understand or critique what Bannon was saying,” Carlson continued later, “ideas and policy are not interesting to reporters, mindless tribalism is, so that’s what they cover. This is toxic, it obscures the issues that actually matter.”

“Instead of looking at real problems like rampant drug addiction or economic inequality, and those are real problems, and trying to find solutions to them, the left is obsessed with finding and enjoying destroying the imagined racists in our midst,” he said.

“With Bannon gone, they will move on to somebody else, and they will,” he concluded. “Say when you about Steve Bannon, you can see a lot a lot, but he never forgot why Trump got elected in the first place and in a democracy that is not a small thing.”

“Bannon kept an office full of campaign promises. It’s probably all ready been taken down by now,” Carlson said ruefully.

Bannon almost immediately went back to his position at Breitbart News after being fired, and in an interview said that the presidency he had fought for and won was over. He vowed to keep fighting for the Trump agenda from outside the administration.

‘This is going to be really a bloody affair’: Krauthammer on Bannon

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 20:47

Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer said that Stephen Bannon’s dismissal from the White House makes him “immensely” more powerful, and that his next steps at Breitbart News will be “really a bloody affair.” He made the comments on Fox News Friday night.

“In the wake of everything we saw this week, it obviously was not a message that well-received,” Bret Baier asked.

“I think that was part, there were several strikes against Bannon about that interview,” Krauthammer responded. “North Korea, the undermining of the president’s policy, basically saying it’s a bluff and it’s an empty bluff. The China part where he said we’re at war, economic war with China.”

“Just when the president is trying to use Chinese influence on the North Korea problem, and then this,” he added. “I mean it may be that they’ve made their calculation, the president has, particularly when he came out for retaining the confederate memorials. This is a winning issue, if you look at the polls, it is a winning issue.”

“And they want to play this in part to get away from the Charlottesville press conference,” he continued, “but also in part because it’s a winning issue, a cultural issue inside the country.”

“But you don’t say it out loud,” he said. “That’s what was so amazing about this.”

“Bannon was saying we want race to be an issue,” he explained. “We want the country to be divided over this, because we’re gonna win. So you add that, I think, on the ledger of things you simply don’t say in an interview, and you had what I called on the show earlier, the ‘Scaramucci moment.'”

“There are certain things that you simply can’t say and survive,” he concluded. “And he didn’t survive.”

“Look, what happened to day is that the civil war moved from inside the White House, to outside the White House,” Krauthammer explained. “But the war continues.”

“Bannon is very clearly going after the same list of people he found were undermining the president that he talked about in that interview,” he added, “he’s going to go after them from the Breitbart platform or any other.”

“He’s going to go after the softies as he sees it on policy and, you know, this is going to be really a bloody affair,” he concluded.

“I think he’s been immensely strengthened. I mean who heard of Bannon a year ago?” he asked rhetorically. “Everybody’s heard of Bannon now and I think the meeting with the [GOP donors] Mercers is very significant. He’s got billions of dollars behind him. The platform, the machinery of Breitbart under him, and he’s got a clear free-fire zone.”

“He’s not hold back anymore,” Krauthammer conluded. “This, I mean, for Trump it was quite a risk which is I think why it took him so long to get rid of Bannon. It was a double-edged sword and he’s now gonna have to face one of those edges.”

Bannon was dismissed Friday and immediately stepped back into his old position at Breitbart News. In a jarring interview soon after being fired, he declared that the Trump presidency was over, and that he was gearing up to attack the GOP establishment that he saw as the cause for President Trump’s weakening on key issues.

Trump-themed store in Arizona is vandalized with outrageous graffiti

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 20:15

A Trump-themed merchandise store in Show Low, Arizona was vandalized Wednesday night. When owners of “The Trumped Store” showed up to work Thursday morning, they discovered one of their banners desecrated, as well as the side of their building, KTTV reported.

“I can see through our window, our huge Trump store banner outside, black markings,” Steven Slaton, owner of the store, told KTTV. “I said that’s weird, so I went outside and went around, and soon as I saw it, I said ‘Aw crap’. Been vandalized with ‘Nazi scum’ on it.”

According to Slaton, a good Samaritan bought paint and helped him clean up the mess by the time he arrived to the store.

This isn’t the first time the store has had trouble, Slaton told KTTV.

“We had three irate liberals who came in, and we escorted them out and told them to leave our property,” Slaton said. “This is private property, or we’d call the police.”

The store originally served as a campaign location during the 2016 election. Once the election was over, it was converted into a Trump-themed merchandise store.

The couple who own the store shared pictures of the vandalism on Facebook:

Police have an ongoing investigation and the store’s owner is currently checking with neighboring businesses to see if there is any surveillance footage of the criminals.

Slaton is taking extra precautions to protect his business moving forward.

“Probably be staying in the store for a while to see if anyone’s gonna come back, number one,” he said. “We’ve got some people who are going to come in and advise us on particular camera systems.”

In jarring interview, Bannon declares Trump presidency over, readies for war

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 19:49

Just hours after being fired from his position as White House senior advisor Friday, Stephen Bannon declared the Trump presidency over, and said that he was gearing up for war against Republicans and other elements of the administration he disagreed with.

He made the comments in a jarring interview with the Weekly Standard.

“I feel jacked up,” he said. “Now I’m free. I’ve got my hands back on my weapons. Someone said, ‘it’s Bannon the Barbarian.’ I am definitely going to crush the opposition. There’s no doubt.”

It was announced that Bannon would return to his position at Breitbart News, which he left to join the Trump administration a year ago.

“I built a f***ing machine at Breitbart. And now I’m about to go back, knowing what I know, and we’re about to rev that machine up. And rev it up we will do.”

He clearly saw his firing as a defeat for the nationalist-populist agenda, and said that the Trump presidency was “over.”

“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” he told the Weekly Standard. “We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.”

Bannon blamed the Republican establishment elements of the Trump administration for straying away from the populist and nationalist agenda that Trump ran on in the campaign.

“It’s the Republican establishment,” he explained. “The Republican establishment has no interest in Trump’s success on this. They’re not populists, they’re not nationalists, they had no interest in his program. Zero. It was a half-hearted attempt at Obamacare reform, it was no interest really on the infrastructure, they’ll do a very standard Republican version of taxes.”

“I think they’re going to try to moderate him,” he said in another portion of the interview. “I think he’ll sign a clean debt ceiling, I think you’ll see all this stuff. His natural tendency – and I think you saw it this week on Charlottesville – his actual default position is the position of his base, the position that got him elected. I think you’re going to see a lot of constraints on that. I think it’ll be much more conventional.”

Breitbart News declared him a “populist hero” in their triumphant article announcing his return. Trump ally and radio talk show host Laura Ingraham tweeted, “When I heard they were throwing Bannon to the lions, I thought to myself–the poor lions.”

When I heard they were throwing Bannon to the lions, I thought to myself–the poor lions.

Ann Coulter: Trump is manipulable by the media, just look at Bannon firing

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 19:25

Conservative columnist and provocateur Ann Coulter on Friday said the media is to blame for White House strategist Steve Bannon’s firing.

Coulter took to Twitter to voice her outrage over what she calls the mainstream media’s success in convincing President Donald Trump to oust Bannon.

STEVE BANNON OUT! Media is the most powerful branch of government.

— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) August 18, 2017

During an interview with The Daily Caller, Coulter explained why she believes Trump is easily manipulated by the media.

“This makes it appear that Trump is easily manipulable by the media,” Coulter told the Caller. “They just need to give all credit to any White House staffer they want to get rid of. I dread to think of who the media decide to get rid of next.”

If @realDonaldTrump didn't like the media giving Steve Bannon all credit, instead of firing him, he should've hired 10 more like him.

— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) August 18, 2017

Coulter provided Trump with a piece of advice: instead of ousting people like Bannon, he needs to bring in more advisors who are like controversial advisor.

“Not good news. Instead of firing Bannon, because Trump had his nose out of joint about the media giving Bannon all credit for the victory, Trump should’ve hired ten more like him. Media heads would have exploded,” Coulter told the Caller.

The columnist even argued that the majority of Trump’s advisors and staffers weren’t on his side until after the election was over.

“Of course, Trump won the nomination and the presidency of his own will! Bannon supported those issues and supported Trump at least as early as January 2016,” Coulter added. “Who else in the White House did? Most of the White House staff wasn’t on the Trump train until after the election.”

.@realDonaldTrump needs to hire @CLewandowski_ immediately, so there's SOMEONE in the White House who isn't from Goldman Sachs.

— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) August 18, 2017

Coulter even suggested Trump start building his controversial wall along the United States-Mexico border so that people don’t assume the policy was Bannon’s idea.

If Trump wants to prove all his good ideas not from Bannon, better be pedal-to-the-metal on tax hikes for Wall St, killing NAFTA & the Wall!

Lindsey Graham to Trump: Pulling troops out of Afghanistan could cause another 9/11

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 18:25

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Friday warned President Donald Trump that pulling troops out of Afghanistan could mean another September 11th attack on American turf.

Graham believes Trump should provide troops with “the tools and support they need to confront the rising terror threats in Afghanistan.”

“If we were to pull all our troops from Afghanistan it would be a disaster for our national security interests and set the stage for another 9/11 on American soil,” the senator said in a statement.

Trump and his national security team are currently meeting in Maryland to discuss the possibility of sending thousands of additional U.S. and NATO troops to Afghanistan, the Washington Examiner reported. The president, however, has been on the fence about providing more boots on the ground.

During a July meeting, most of Trump’s advisors favored sending an additional 3,000 to 5,000 troops to the Middle East, Reuters reported. As part of this plan, U.S. soldiers would join Afghan forces at the brigade level.

According to numerous U.S. intelligence agencies, even a modest increase in troops from the U.S. and its allies would not keep the conditions in Afghanistan from deteriorating, Reuters reported.

GOP sen. on student at ‘alt-right’ protest: ‘No room’ for ‘those kind of feelings’ at Nevada college

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 18:04

After a photo outed a University of Nevada, Reno student as one of the “alt-right” demonstrators in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Republican U.S. senator from Nevada said in an on-camera interview, “I don’t think there’s any room for a student at UNR to have those kind of feelings and to be pushing this agenda.”

The comments from Sen. Dean Heller came amid questions about the deadly demonstrations last weekend and news that UNR student Peter Cvjetanovic was photographed prominently among the chanting, torch-wielding demonstrators.

This angry young man is Peter Cvjetanovic, a student at @unevadareno pic.twitter.com/7rLGJkcT3o

— Yes, You're Racist (@YesYoureRacist) August 12, 2017

“That’s not what Nevada represents … that’s not how we think out here in my great state, in our great state,” Heller told KNRV-TV in an interview posted to Twitter on Monday. “I was very, very disappointed to learn that any Nevadan would have participated in an ordeal like that.”

Heller told the station: “I do denounce his feelings on this, the fact that he was there. I don’t think there’s any room for it, and I don’t think there’s any room for a student at UNR to have those kind of feelings and to be pushing this agenda.”

TheBlaze on Friday reached out to Heller’s office to ask if he wants Cvjetanovic gone from UNR and how a student’s “feelings” or philosophical stance can be enforced on campus — or even punished. Heller’s office didn’t immediately reply.

As repugnant as racism is, the First Amendment allows American citizens to hold repugnant views. Of course, it’s illegal to discriminate, deny rights, threaten or exact violence, but when one can be punished for “feelings” or beliefs on an issue, then someone else’s “feelings” or beliefs on another subject could be penalized as well.

“The community’s outrage I can completely understand … and frankly [I] support the outrage that someone here in the state of Nevada would be in Charlottesville participating in activities like that,” Heller said to KNRV. “There’s just absolutely no room for it, and I refuse to support anything that they were doing.”

Here’s video of Heller’s comments to the station:

Marc A. Johnson, president of the University of Nevada, Reno, issued a statement Sunday about Cvjetanovic’s presence in Charlottesville, KNRV-TV said, and it didn’t indicate he’d receive any discipline:

We have been witness to the violence that has taken place this weekend during the white nationalist march in Charlottesville, Virginia. One of the marchers photographed has been identified as a University of Nevada, Reno student.

Racism and white supremacist movements have a corrosive effect on our society. These movements do not represent our values as a university. We denounce any movement that targets individuals due to the color of their skin, their religious beliefs, political beliefs, sexual orientation, ability/disability, or whether they were born in our country. As an institution, we remain firm in our commitment in denouncing all forms of bigotry and racism, which have no place in a free and equal society.

The University of Nevada, Reno is a caring and safe community of students and employees from a broad range of backgrounds with differing beliefs. This community will not be divided by hateful language and violence. Our learning environment respects the right to freely express views and debate openly in civil discourse. There will be clashes of beliefs and opinions, but they must be peaceful. As a community, we abhor violence and it has no place on our campus. If we are to come to greater understanding of each other, it will be through open, honest, non-violent discussion and exploration of all ideas. Educating ourselves on the other’s point of view is the key to understanding and peaceful co-existence.

The tragedy that occurred this weekend in Virginia is an important reminder that we must recognize the perspectives of all individuals. Peaceful assembly and exchange of ideas is part of the bedrock of any free society. We will maintain a commitment to the safe, peaceful expression and exchange of ideas on our campus.

That didn’t sit well with the writer of a Change.org petition demanding that UNR expel Cvjetanovic — and it’s attracted over 35,000 signatures as of Friday afternoon.

“The University of Nevada, Reno is as racist as white supremacist Peter Cvjetanovic,” the petition reads, adding that UNR “has condemned the actions that took place in Charlottesville. Yet, UNR has also refused to give Peter Cvjetanovic any consequences for his actions … I argue that inaction, when you are in a position of power, is as good as not caring.”

Cvjtanovic’s freshman year roommate, Ed Donofrio, told KNRV that Cvjtanovic “once told a person of color that they deserve to be discriminated against.”

But Cvjtanovic, 20 — who confirmed to KNRV that he did attend the demonstration in Charlottesville as seen in the viral photos — said in an interview with the station that he’s not racist despite becoming part of the “alternative right.”

He also explained that he’s not a white supremacist, but a white nationalist — or more precisely, an “identitarian.”

“I personally believe that all cultures and peoples – that includes their languages, their religions, their histories – are under threat with globalism,” he told KNRV, adding that he wants to work with other races to preserve their identities and histories as well.

“I’m not a white supremacist in any sense of the word. I do not believe that whites are inherently superior in any way to any other race,” Cvjtanovic told the station. “I know a lot of stupid whites and I know a lot of really intelligent Indians and Asians … On the average of all races, we’re the same.”

Cjetanovic added to KNRV that he intends to continue to attend UNR for his senior year, even in the face of multiple death threats and efforts to expel him.

Socialist group plans to clash with pro-Confederate march in Austin next month

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 17:30

A march celebrating “the true Confederate heritage that most of America is unaware of” is set to take place late September in Austin, Texas. However, a socialist group is organizing a countermarch meant to meet the pro-Confederate march to “stymie” them.

According to the Statesman, the “Dixie Freedom Rally” organized by the Texas Confederate Militia was set to take place Sept. 2 as a counterprotest to a “Unity March” and concert. According to the Unity March’s page, the event encourages “Texas’ diverse communities of color” to meet for a “free concert and march to show lawmakers that we are powerful, that we are united.”

The page accused Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott of attempting to criminalize minorities, specifically Latinos, by signing SB4 into law, which bans sanctuary cities in Texas.

However, Austin police and the Austin Parks Department consulted with the militia group and advised them to move their march to a later date. The organization complied and moved the event to Sept 23.

According to the Dixie Freedom Rally’s Facebook event page, the event is still to be a march on the Texas Capitol and various Confederate statues. The page urged attendees to bring either a Confederate, or U.S. flag, as well as food to donate to charity. Attendees were also urged to legally bring their firearms and were told that no racism would be tolerated among the marchers. Those who did exhibit racism, the page stated, would be removed.

Simultaneously, the Austin Democratic Socialists of America were planning a countermarch on Sept. 2, but have also moved their event to Sept 23. According to the “Counterprotest: against white supremacist rally in ATX” Facebook event page, the Dixie Freedom Rally “is predicated on white supremacy” and encourages its followers to commit violence.

“Prepare to show up on the 2nd to shut down this event by the tactics you deem most appropriate,” the countermarch’s Facebook event page said before the date change, adding that the hosts of the countermarch do not condone violence.

However, the socialist group urged countermarch participants not to report their allies to the police or stop them if they see them doing something they find disagreeable. Participants are instead encouraged to “simply walk away”:

The calls to action above are broad, and it is not an exhaustive list of all the steps one could take to oppose the hateful and dangerous event in question. Obviously, there will never be unanymity [sic] on the precisely ‘correct’ course of action, and understanding that, we suggest that every individual take part in the manner they deem most appropriate. If you are there on the day of, and you see a fellow counterdemonstrator [sic] doing something of which you disapprove, DO NOT direct the attention of law enforcement to that person or otherwise attempt to disrupt their mode of resistance (within reason). Simply walk away, especially if their actions make you feel unsafe in any way. In order to combat the clear and present danger posed by white supremacy in our midst, we must harness the collective efforts of all allies and we must focus those efforts on the foe at hand. The common struggle for universal liberation will manifest in different ways for different people at different times.

Radical leftist groups have recently posted articles and fliers calling for more battles in the street after the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Saturday.

Radical leftist groups and white supremacists fought in the streets during a “Unite the Right” rally to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. During the fight, a man drove a Dodge Challenger into the middle of a crowd of leftists, killing one, and injuring multiple people.

Six flags no more: Theme park removes Confederate flag due to backlash

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 16:48

Six Flags Over Texas used to have a flag representing each chapter of the state’s history flying over the entrance: One flag representing the United States, Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, and most infamously, the Confederate States of America.

No longer.

The regional theme park, based in Arlington, Texas, decided Friday morning that only the American flag would fly at the entrance in response to the growing controversy surrounding Confederate historical items on display in public spaces.

Why the flags came down

A statement explained the theme park’s reasons for the move, after it had previously declined to remove the controversial Confederate flag.

“At Six Flags Over Texas we strive every single day to make people happy and to create a fun, thrilling and safe family friendly experience for our guests,” Six Flags spokeswoman Sharon Parker said. “We always choose to focus on celebrating the things that unite us versus those that divide us. As such, we have changed the flag displays in our park to feature American flags.”

Why was there a Confederate flag in the first place?

History has been a prominent theme for Six Flags Over Texas since its inception, although Parker said that has been downplayed some in recent years as the Six Flags brand has grown.

“When Six Flags Over Texas was being planned during the Eisenhower administration, the founders settled on six themed areas and decided to use the historic fact of the flags of six nations that had flown over Texas as the basis of the themed areas,” Parker said. “Since that time, the park has moved on to incorporate many other themes. The Six Flags represent our brand across the world; no longer the themed areas of a park that opened in 1961.”

When Six Flags Over Texas first opened, there was a section of the park called “The Confederacy” that was later renamed to “The Old South.”

The flag that flew over the theme park was not the more well-known Confederate battle flag, but rather the earlier version of the Confederate flag that was replaced due to being too similar to the Union flag.

The two sides

The debate about Confederate artifacts continues. Defenders of the monuments and flags believe it is important to preserve them in public spaces for historical awareness, while those in favor of removing Confederate markers say their presence in public spaces is offensive, oppressive and unnecessary, and that history can effectively be preserved in museums and books.

The violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, which started with a white nationalist protest of the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, has intensified the debate of relics of the Confederacy.

Even the two sons of Six Flags Over Texas founder Angus Wynne Jr., Shannon and Angus III, disagree on the move. Angus said he would rather remove the flags than have it become a source of division, while Shannon said removing the other five flags is an overreach.

“The fact is the Confederacy did exist and Texas was a part of it,” Shannon Wynne said to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson address Confederate statue issue during ‘SNL’ skit

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 16:33

Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers on Thursday appeared on “Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update” dressed up as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Their segment focused on whether or not Confederate statues should remain in place, especially after last weekend’s violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“Anyway, about this whole Robert E. Lee thing, I’m nothing like that guy. I created this country. He tried to tear it apart,” Fallon said as Washington. “I rebelled against England. He rebelled against America. Him — bad. Me — Founding Father. The original Dad.”

The show’s host, Michael Che, brought up a fact that is often left out of the discussion: that Washington owned slaves.

“The issue is that you and Robert E. Lee both owned slaves,” Che said.

Fallon then throws the ball to Meyers, who played the role of Jefferson, by reminding the audience that Jefferson, too, owned slaves.

“Whoa, you’re going to throw me under the carriage like that?” Meyers asked as Jefferson. “You’re going to make me the slave guy, really?”

Meyers paused and looked at the audience.

“You have to remember, it was a different time, man. It was the ’70s, man. The 1770s,” he explained. “Look, we have all done bad things, but the difference between us and Robert E. Lee is we did good things, like I wrote the Declaration of Independence.”

“Not to be a jerk, but I won my war,” Fallon said as Washington.

“Yeah, and I’m sorry, Robert E. Lee, but I prefer generals who win wars,” Meyers added as Jefferson.

Missouri governor says this should happen if state senator won’t resign over assassination comment

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 16:18

Missouri Republican Gov. Eric Greitens says that the state Senate should remove Democratic Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal if she refuses to resign for writing in a now-deleted Facebook post that she hopes President Donald Trump gets “assassinated.”

“Senator Chappelle-Nadal said she hopes the President is killed. Republicans and Democrats have called on her to resign. Her response: ‘Hell no.’ Last night, in an interview, she refused to apologize–twice. If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her. I believe they should,” Greitens wrote Friday in a series of tweets.

Senator Chappelle-Nadal said she hopes the President is killed. Republicans and Democrats have called on her to resign.

Her response: “Hell no.” Last night, in an interview, she refused to apologize—twice.

If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her. I believe they should.

— Eric Greitens (@EricGreitens) August 18, 2017

The governor’s call for Chappelle-Nadal’s removal from office came after the St. Louis Democrat wrote in a Facebook comment Thursday that “I hope Trump is assassinated!” Chappelle-Nadal later deleted the comment.

“I put that up on my personal Facebook and I should not have,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “It was in response to the concerns that I am hearing from residents of St. Louis. I have deleted it, and it should have been deleted, but there is something way more important that we should be talking about,” Chappelle-Nadal said in an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“I didn’t mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated,” Chappelle-Nadal said.

Missouri Republican Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, who is also president of the Missouri Senate, said that Chappelle-Nadal should resign but revealed what he’s willing to do if she does not.

“Many Republicans and Democrats have asked for her resignation. For her to continue to serve as a Missouri state senator is totally unacceptable,” Parson told KTVI-TV. “There are ways to remove her from office but I think she should take responsibility for her actions and resign.

“As the president of the Missouri Senate, I have the ability, the right to call on my fellow senators to expel her from the Missouri Senate; which I plan to do if she does not resign,” Parson said.

In his remarks to KTVI, Parson cited Article III, Section 18 of the Missouri Constitution, which states that either the Missouri House of Representatives or the Missouri Senate “may punish its members for disorderly conduct; and, with the concurrence of two-thirds of all members elect, may expel a member; but no member shall be expelled a second time for the same cause,” according to Ballotpedia.

Chappelle-Nadal posted the now-deleted Facebook comment just days after 32-year-old Heather Heyer died in a white supremacist terror attack in Charlottesville, Virginia. Two Virginia state police officers also died in a helicopter crash while responding to the violence.

Trump faced criticism from both the left and the right for his response to the attack, after condemning “both sides.”

But it’s not just Republicans who want Chappelle-Nadal to resign. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Stephen Webber, chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party, have also called for her resignation.

“I condemn it. It’s outrageous. And she should resign,” McCaskill said, according to CNN.

Webber called the remarks “indefensible.”

“All sides need to agree that there is no room for suggestions of political violence in America — and the Missouri Democratic Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the president. I believe she should resign,” Webber said, CNN reported.

In a Thursday night tweet, however, Chappellle-Nadal gave no indication that she’ll step down.

“I am not resigning. When [people of color] are respected by this WH & they are willing to do real work, I’ll sit down with them. People are traumatized!” Chappelle-Nadal tweeted.

I am not resigning. When POC are respected by this WH & they are willing to do real work, I’ll sit down with them. People are traumatized! https://t.co/rmsL4pQSTg

Christianity grows in North Korea despite torture, persecution

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 16:03

North Korea’s underground Christian community is thriving despite followers of Christ suffering horrific torture and brutal deaths at the hands of the communist government, according to Fox News.

According to Open Doors, a Christian persecution watchdog site, North Korea has ranked No. 1 as the deadliest place for Christians for the last 16 years. Yet, North Korea still has an estimated Christian population of around 9 million people, or 36 percent of North Korea’s total population.

The Korea Risk Group told Fox News that North Korea’s Constitution maintains a non-discriminatory policy concerning the practice of religion, but this is just a facade to please visiting foreigners. Foreign diplomats and tourists are wheeled past state-run churches and mosques for various faiths. Each of these churches has the appropriately dressed clergy worshiping at the appropriate alters with congregations of people passing around collection plates.

According to the Korea Risk Group, this is a show performed by hand-picked state workers. The reality is that Christianity is seen as dangerous to the state, according to Fox News. Those caught practicing it face the harshest penalties.

In May, Greg Scarlatoiu, executive director of the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, explained why North Korea despises Christianity, saying the faith “offers an alternative set of beliefs, an alternative way of life, a way of life that does not tolerate tyranny. The North Korean regime fears Christianity because it offers a venue for the exchange of ideas.”

“Christians are accused of being imperialists seeking to overthrow the government and those who are caught practicing their faith are arrested, horrendously tortured, imprisoned and [sometimes] immediately put to death,” Jeff King, president of International Christian Concern. told Fox News.

North Korean defectors have reported that Christians are sent to concentration camps where they are “crushed by steamrollers and used to test biological weapons, or hung on a cross over a fire,” according to Fox News.

Fox News reported that according to the Database Center for North Korean Human Rights, there are around 70,000 Christians within these camps. Reportedly, 75 percent of Christians who wind up in the camps do not survive.

Fox News reported that North Korea’s Christian population is very wary about exposing their faith, even to their own children:

Vernon Brewer, founder and president of humanitarian organization World Help told Fox News that he often thinks about a case involving a girl named Eun, whose third-grade teacher gave the class a “special assignment” to go home and “look for a book” and if it’s the right book, the student will be honored. Eun ended up finding a Bible.

“The next day she received a prize at her school. But when Eun returned home, her parents weren’t there,” he recalled. “It’s hard to imagine such cruelty that would unknowingly turn children on their own parents.”

North Korean authorities will reportedly snatch up family members of Christians under the suspicion that they share their Christian family member’s faith.

The Christian faith is growing in North Korea despite the country’s hostility toward the faithful.

According to Fox News, North Koreans are sometimes allowed to visit China. There, they gather Bibles, and other Christian literature. They smuggle the texts back into North Korea at great peril.

“Despite efforts to eradicate Christians, we have found the church is North Korea is actually growing,” Brewer said. “They know only God is powerful enough to break through the darkness of the most oppressive regime on earth.”

U.S. Can Win Trade War With China, But It Shouldn't Try

Real Clear Politics - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 15:53
Ian Bremmer, Time
President Donald Trump was ready to wage war in Asia this week — but not against North Korea and not with conventional weapons. Instead, it was China at risk and of a trade war. The White House had repeatedly warned that the Middle Kingdom's persistent misbehavior would lead to more U.S. pressure on the superpowers' trade relationship, and it seemed finally ready to act. Yet China's cooperation on U.N. Security Council sanctions against North Koreaearlier in August seems to have bought Beijing some time.

We seemed better able to manage these problems in the past. The 1985 Plaza Accords, for example, which involved the five largest industrial countries, represented a coordinated intervention undertaken by Ronald Reagan’s Treasury secretary James Baker to weaken the overvalued dollar. The accords dramatically lowered the value of the dollar by 40 percent, and ultimately reduced the American trade deficit with Japan. The United States is a more distractible country today, though, less pragmatic and hard-headed than it was in 1985. We have been mostly asleep when it comes to understanding...

Erik Prince thinks he can turn around the war in Afghanistan, and he’s got a PowerPoint deck to explain the whole thing. The Blackwater founder brought it with him to the Corner Bakery on North Capitol Street in Washington last Thursday, printed out and placed in a presentation binder. He’s been shopping it around D.C. And on Friday, when President Trump huddles with his advisers at Camp David to plot a way forward, it will be in the mix.
