I was bored tonight and found myself clicking through the below sourced link. This popped up and I couldn’t help but share it. Someone edited the wikipedia page about invertebrates and created this gem! Yes, I checked… it isn’t live anymore. But we have this screen capture to live off of for a moment.
Now that’s funny!
He’s calling it the “No Trump Act”.

The Justice Department was investigating the activities of the now-defunct Burlington College as recently as February, according to emails obtained through a public records request.
The emails show the U.S. attorney for Vermont and an FBI agent reviewed Burlington College records in the state’s possession earlier this year pursuant to an investigation. Both enforcement agencies declined to comment on the substance of that probe or whether it has been completed.
“It’s typical for us not to comment or to confirm whether or not there’s a current investigation. We would not comment on any active investigation,” said Kraig LaPorte, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office. An FBI spokeswoman cited a similar policy.
The chair of the Burlington College board of trustees said Thursday that the FBI investigation has been going for more than a year, and at least one former school employee was subpoenaed as part of the probe.
In January 2016, after reporting by VTDigger showing former Burlington College President Jane Sanders overstated pledged donations in applying for a loan so the school could purchase its former North Avenue campus, Republican lawyer Brady Toensing made a formal request to the U.S. attorney for a fraud investigation.
The Vermont Agency of Education took possession of records left at the college in the wake of its sudden closure in May. When a college closes, state law requires the school or the state to keep academic records so students can obtain transcripts and graduate certificates.
The same article also states:
Asked to describe the rumors, Torti said they related to “the purchase of Burlington College and how the money came about, going back to what a lot of us scratched our heads about who came to the board after (the purchase), which was what were they thinking and how did this all make sense financially.”
Jane Sanders, wife of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., overstated donation amounts in a bank application for a $6.7 million loan the college used to purchase a prime 33-acre property on Lake Champlain in 2010.
She told People’s United Bank in 2010 that the college had $2.6 million in pledged donations to support the purchase of the former Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington property.
The college, however, received only $676,000 in actual donations from 2010 through 2014, according to figures provided by Burlington College.
Two people whose pledges are listed as confirmed in the loan agreement told VTDigger that their personal financial records show their pledges were overstated. Neither was aware the pledges were used to secure the loan.
Fox News reports:
Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray, in a meeting with Mexico’s top legislators, called Trump’s plan an “unfriendly, hostile” act, and called on his colleagues to consider the entry fee.

And if you actually pay the fee you’re a moron. I wouldn’t even do business down there anymore. Screw it. Until the border wall at their own southern border comes down, they can shove it.
From Kimberly Morin: By now it’s become quite clear that the ‘antifa’ protesters really stand for nothing more than Anti-First Amendment. They abhor free speech, unless it’s their own and seek to shut down any other free speech that disagrees with them.
Antifa is anti-First Amendment To date, cowards like those who run Berkeley College in California, have allowed them to shut down the speech of others. Even when speeches have been shut down, the basement dwellers still got violent and rioted.
Trump supporters fight back. Over the weekend, these free speech haters got a little taste of their own medicine when they tried to shut down a pro-Trump rally at Berkley. They literally got a beat down because the pro-Trump supporters didn’t merely shut up and cower in a corner.
What next? As a result of these skirmishes over the weekend, some interesting information has been seen across the interwebs on Reddit. From Bearing Arms:
After suffering what can only be described as a complete route after attacking a march of Trump supporters in Berkeley (CA) this past weekend, violent left wing “Antifa” (self-proclaimed anti-fascists) radical are preparing for war.
The comment thread is interesting, especially the following exchanges.
So these people, who can’t have an actual discussion about the issues, now want to use even more physical violence AND firearms as well? Who are the fascists again?
