On Tuesday, furor erupted over British media personality Katie Hopkins‘ tweets regarding the Manchester terrorist attack that slaughtered scores of children attending an Ariana Grande concert. After posting the tweet below, Hopkins was reported to British police by another user.
Hopkins also used the term ‘final solution’ in one of her tweets but quickly deleted it and replaced it with ‘true solution’. Was it in bad taste for Hopkins to use ‘final solution’? Absolutely. Jailed or fined for it, though? Absolutely not. It’s a bizarro world when people come under fire for wanting to choose security over the slaughter of innocent children.
A video of a Florida Sheriff making a promo video to scare has been making the rounds recently. Casey Research recently covered the affair, noting the following quote from Sheriff Grinnell:
“Enjoy looking over your shoulder, constantly wondering if today’s the day we come for you. Enjoy trying to sleep tonight, wondering if tonight’s the night our SWAT team blows your front door off the hinges. We are coming for you.”
The video (reproduced below, with commentary from Casey Research) is as surreal as the above picture implies…
Earlier this week, CNN had former Navy Seal, Carl Higbie on-air to discuss the bogus claim that President Trump shared classified info with Russian Ambassadors.
Of course, it got ugly – and quick.
Higbie starts off by saying he’s “sat very quietly listening to all this BS” and launches into a well-deserved tirade against Bolduan and her panelists. “Have you listened to anything McMaster said today?” Higbie asks, referencing multiple reports of McMaster refuting Trump sharing classified intel.
Higbie goes on to point out that “two former officials” confirmed the main points of CNN’s unverified story. “Tell you what, come out; name those people – then we’ll have something to talk about.”
On Wednesday, PEOPLE Magazine released a preview of an upcoming issue, titled “The Obamas; Their Lives Now”, which includes commentary on Obama’s “relationship” with President Trump:
“He’s nothing but a bullsh–ter.”
Tell us how you really feel, Obama, because after your oval office meeting with Trump, we never would have guessed that you two hated each other. But isn’t this a major case of hypocrisy on Obama’s part, with a track record of lies and “bullshit” miles long?
So let’s take a minute and recap all of the bullshit former President Obama told the American public during his tenure. It’s the only fitting rebuttal, isn’t it?
A bombshell report by Marina Marraco of Fox 5 D.C. purports Seth Rich leaked thousands of internal DNC e-mails to WikiLeaks months before his death.
Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, claims there’s physical evidence on Seth Rich’s laptop that confirms he communicated with WikiLeaks prior to being murdered.
For 10 months, D.C. police have labeled Rich’s murder as a “robbery gone wrong“. However, the only thing stolen from Seth Rich was his life; his attackers didn’t bother to take anything else from him. The official police report of the incident even proves that Seth Rich was alive and conscious when officers found him. Did Rich say anything to police when they found him and did their body cameras catch anything of interest at the scene?
Hillary Clinton has emerged from hibernation and found her way back into the news, and she made sure to start off by letting the world know that she took “personal responsibility” for her historic loss to President Trump:
“I take absolute personal responsibility. I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot. I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had,” Clinton said.
But, by now everyone knows that the claim of “personal responsibility” was just a token statement for the blame game that came afterwards. So, for the first time ever, Free Market Shooter will do a “Monday Morning Quarterback” analysis of Hillary Clinton’s statements, analogizing them to a previously established comparison – the New England Patriots’ comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.
Yesterday, President Trump signed an executive order undoing many Obama-era regulations targeted towards coal power plants:
President Trump moved Tuesday to unravel a host of energy regulations imposed by his predecessor, targeting in particular the Obama administration’s signature program that was intended to curb carbon emissions – but blasted by Republicans for hurting the already-struggling coal industry.
With a sweeping executive order signed at EPA headquarters, Trump initiated an immediate review of the Clean Power Plan, which restricts greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants. Surrounded by coal miners, the president described that plan as a “crushing attack” on workers and vowed to nix “job-killing regulations.”
Predictably, the Malthusian predictions came quickly from the left. Michael Moore started off the show, stating that Trump’s signature alone would be “the day the extinction of human life on earth began”:
Over three years ago, The Daily Mail reported a story about a 16-year-old boy who died at a border crossing. Allegedly, the boy was trying to pass off liquid methamphetamine as “apple juice” and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) Officers asked him to prove it was indeed apple juice:
Customs and Border Protection officers at the port of San Ysidro reported that the boy appeared nervous and their suspicions grew when they found he was carrying two small containers of an amber-colored liquid that he claimed was juice.
The officers took the teen to an inspection area, where he drank some of the liquid, said San Diego police Lt. Mike Hastings.
Free Market Shooter was recently presented with an article from Vogue detailing the steps Google’s Yasmin Green is taking to become a “slayer” of internet trolls. A few notable excerpts are below:
“We have that geopolitical lens,” Green tells me. “We have the mandate to think ahead, rather than respond to what’s happening at the moment. To think prophetically.”
“Our job is to get more and better information in the hands of vulnerable people,” she says.
“How can we illustrate this?” asks Green. How, in other words, can the threat be explained so that you don’t have to be a Silicon Valley programmer to understand it?
Does this sound at all to you like a simple reprogramming of search algorithms? Because it sure reads a lot more like McCarthy-ist censorship. And a closer look at Google’s strategy reveals that is exactly what Google intends to do, with right-wing news as the target.
On Friday, the Department of Justice asked for the resignations of 46 US attorneys. As a DoJ spokesperson pointed out, this is standard operating procedure when a new administration takes office:
“As was the case in prior transitions, many of the United States attorneys nominated by the previous administration already have left the Department of Justice. The attorney general has now asked the remaining 46 presidentially appointed US attorneys to tender their resignations in order to ensure a uniform transition,” Justice Department spokesperson Sarah Isgur Flores said.
Of the 46 US attorneys, only one refused to tender his resignation as per the request of Attorney General Jeff Sessions – US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, a high-profile Obama appointee in the prominent New York City district that prosecuted so many big cases. So since he refused to resign, Sessions did what Trump had previously done so many times on his show The Apprentice… he fired him:
