+4I hate politics for how much it divides us and pits us against each other. I see my own family argue vehemently on one position or another and I admit, I do it too. It's not right that we should have to choose sides and argue about who is right and who is wrong. I see hatred, xenophobia, misogyny and bigotry casually extolled like it is a modern virtue--a policy position to be taken up and argued for. We fear what we do not understand. I want to reach out to everyone who has fears of Muslims or black people or gays or white people or cops. I want to shake that fear from their mind and open up their hearts. I want them to feel empathy for the sick and the dying, for the refugee escaping war, for the immigrant trying to feed their family, for the homeless person trying to make a new life for themselves. Everyone deserves understanding. I want us to believe in facts and I want our news media to give us facts without bias or agenda. No Fox News, no MSNBC, no alt-right bull shit, no liberal commie bias. I want us to learn, to educate ourselves and stop being fed **** and lies from politicians and the press. I wish people could understand complexities and nuance. Incremental change as opposed to "throw it all way and start anew." We can't function as a society like this. What made us think this was the way to be? That if it isn't fixed now, that it will never be fixed and can never be improved. That we must choose sides and argue that side with malice because my way is right and your way is always wrong. Should we accept that as reality? I get angry when hate is the default answer. I get angry at ignorance. I get angry when people don't want to grow. I get angry when people don't listen to each other. Why do you want to live like this America? Why is this the answer? I guess what I am saying is, don't accept your own ignorance and don't accept it from those around you.

Trump's words? What about Hillary's actions? by Mychal Massie I continue to support Donald Trump for president, his not uncommon locker room braggadocio notwithstanding. I continue to support him because his observations pursuant male/female consensual adult sexual relations are no comparison to what the composition of the Supreme Court will be if Hillary Clinton is allowed to steal the election. I’m not withdrawing my support because remarks he made 11 years ago, or last week, in no way impacted the respectful manner in which his female employees are treated. His remarks didn’t translate into a hostile work environment for women. I am not withdrawing my support for Donald Trump because I am beyond outraged with the pernicious duplicity of the media and politicians who themselves are guilty of far more than just hollow words. And I’m particularly appalled at false piety. Bill and Hillary Clinton rode into Washington on waves of sexual scandals and proven accusations of bigotry and racism. Dolly Kyle author of the book “Hillary: The Other Woman,” was Bill Clinton’s lover during their time together in high school and a friend since childhood. Kyle tells of Hillary calling disabled children who were invited to an Easter egg hunt at the Arkansas governor’s mansion “F–king retards.” Kyle wrote that Hillary called the people of Arkansas “ignorant hillbillies.” She says Hillary referenced Jews as: “Stupid Kike[s]” and “f–king Jew bastard[s].” Kyle joins a legion of people who insist that Bill Clinton called Rev. Jesse Jackson a “g–damned nigger.” The media saw nothing wrong with those remarks; in fact, the media and politicians ignore Hillary’s racism and anti-Semitism. Donald Trump’s locker room talk didn’t result in Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willy being raped and Paula Jones being beaten. Donald Trump didn’t say when you drive through a trailer park Paula Jones is what you get – but the Clinton campaign did. Donald Trump’s legacy is not stains on a blue dress. Does the media and dirty tricksters really want us to believe Mr. Trump’s earthy comments are worse than Bill Clinton using cigars as sexual devices on a White House intern in the Oval Office? What Mr. Trump said 11 years ago or one year ago isn’t the same as Hillary Clinton abandoning Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Ambassador Stevens and Glen Doherty to be murdered in Benghazi. Mr. Trump’s “alpha boasting” did not contribute to the national debt, to 95 million Americans being out of the workforce, 50 million Americans being on food stamps, porous borders, terrorism in our streets, loss of jobs, ad nauseam. Rapper Rick Ross has written the most vulgar and sexually graphic songs in the history of rap. One of Ross’ so-called songs was about about him drugging and raping “hoes.” The media weren’t interested when the hip-hop mogul attended an Obama White House event promoting the “empowerment” of black and Latino youth. Ross attended in full rap regalia complete with a court ordered ankle monitor as a condition of his release for kidnapping and assault charges. And these same people feign insult about locker room talk? More

+6Canada’s top 10 list of America’s Stupidity! Read it and weep! This is so sad; from a proud, strong country to a laughing stock of the world… Number 10) Only in America...could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 per plate campaign fund-raising event. Number 9) Only in America ...could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans - 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics! Number 8) Only in America...could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes. Number 7) Only in America...can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media and liberals react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash. Number 6) Only in America...would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just 'magically' become American citizens (probably should be number one). More

+3A string of sex assaults and robberies during New Year’s celebrations in Germany has fuelled debate about the country’s ability to integrate large numbers of migrants, after police said that men who targeted dozens of women in the western city of Cologne appeared to be of “Arab or North African origin.” Political leaders including Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned the attacks, though many also warned against hasty conclusions about the perpetrators. But to some Germans already uneasy about the one million asylum-seekers their country took in last year the incident seemed to confirm simmering fears. “Is this the ‘cosmopolitan and colourful’ Germany that Merkel wished for?” asked Frauke Petry, leader of the nationalist party Alternative for Germany. A woman holds a sign reading "Angela Merkel-Where are you?” Credit: AFP Petry’s party, known by its German acronym AfD, has called for a clampdown on the number of asylum-seekers allowed into the country, a sentiment shared among a growing number of supporters in Merkel’s own centre-right bloc. “It’s unacceptable that women are sexually molested and robbed by young migrants on the streets and public squares of German cities at night,” said Andreas Scheuer, general secretary of the Christian Social Union, the Bavarian wing of Merkel’s party. “Whoever won’t accept our rules for living together, including respect for women, can have no place in our society here in Germany,” said Scheuer. His party has called for a cap of 200,000 asylum-seekers in Germany a year, a demand its politicians are likely to repeat at a meeting with Merkel on Wednesday. Others in Germany cautioned against tying the refugee question to the issue of street crime when the full facts of the incident aren’t known yet. “It’s completely improper ... to link a group that appeared to come from North Africa with the refugees,” Cologne’s mayor Henriette Reker told reporters after a crisis meeting with police Tuesday. Syria, Albania and Kosovo were the top three countries of origin for asylum-seekers in Germany last year. Cem Ozdemir, a Green Party politician of Turkish origin, described the attacks as “horrible and deeply misogynist.” “Women must feel safe everywhere, no matter where or when,” he said. Cologne’s police chief Wolfgang Albers said no arrests have been made yet. “We don’t currently have any suspects, so we don’t know who the perpetrators were. All we know is that the police at the scene perceived that it was mostly young men aged 18 to 35 from the Arab or North African region.” Albers urged witnesses to come forward, especially if they recorded videos of the attacks. At least 90 criminal complaints have been filed, including one allegation of rape, police said. Police said the attackers had gathered in large numbers near the city’s main train station, drinking alcohol, releasing fireworks and mingling with other revellers. Separately, police in the northern city of Hamburg appealed for witnesses who observed similar sexual assaults and thefts in the St. Pauli district on New Year’s night. German Justice Minister Heiko Maas said the attacks shouldn’t be used to bolster an anti-refugee agenda. “In criminal law what’s important is proving a crime, and everyone is equal before the law,” Maas said. “It doesn’t matter where someone comes from, it matters what they did and that we can prove it.” On Tuesday evening some 300 protesters gathered near the site of the assaults in front of Cologne Cathedral, next to the train station. One woman held a handmade placard that read: “Mrs Merkel, where are you? What do you say? This is scary.” Merkel’s office said the chancellor had called mayor Reker earlier in the day and “expressed her outrage about these despicable assaults and sexual attacks, that demand a hard response by the forces of law.” She also called for everything to be done “to find the perpetrators as quickly and comprehensively as possible and to punish them without regard to their origin or background,” her office said. German authorities have regularly dismissed the idea that the influx of refugees is leading to a disproportionate rise in crime. At the same time, security officials have warned that violence against asylum-seekers has increased steeply over the past year. Federal police said Tuesday that they had detained a 26-year-old man who was travelling to Cologne with a foot-long meat cleaver in his pocket. Police said the unidentified man told officers: “I’m on the way to Cologne to get an idea of the sexual assaults. I need the cleaver for that.” The man was taken to a psychiatric hospital. Cologne, which was founded by the Romans almost 2,000 years ago and is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in Germany, plans to step up measures to prevent similar attacks during the annual Carnival festivities next month, when alcohol-soaked street parties are the norm. “We will also have to explain our Carnival better to people from other cultures, so that there’s no confusion about the cheerful behaviour in Cologne that has nothing to do with candour, especially candid sexuality,” Reker said.
