A police officer gets brutally executed in the Bronx as she sits in her squad car. A train carrying 150 people derails in Manhattan’s Penn Station. And those crazy costumed characters in Times Square are still running wild.

But where’s the city’s mayor? Not there. He flew to Hamburg, Germany, to “join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit in Germany,” the New York Post reports.

Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday skipped an NYPD swearing-in ceremony made somber by this week’s assassination of a cop — then hours later revealed he was busy preparing to jet off on a surprise trip to join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit in Germany.

Hizzoner’s overseas jaunt was kept under wraps until just 90 minutes before he took off from Newark Airport. A last-minute announcement said he “will attend several events surrounding the G-20 Summit, including Saturday’s Hamburg Zeigt Haltung rally.”

De Blasio will be the keynote speaker, organizers of the demonstration — Hamburg Shows Attitude — tweeted.

The mayor also made sure the free trip will include a visit with his son, Dante, a Yale University student who’s spending the summer on an internship in Berlin, a City Hall spokesman said.

This POS should never hold elected office ever again! I mean, not even city dog catcher! He should be asking if you want fries with your food order. There isn’t even a curse word or insult strong enough to cover this right now. Someone needs to invent one. Knock yourselves out.

Parents Of U.K. Baby Barred From Potential Life-Saving Treatment In U.S. Prepare For Son’s Mandated Death

“Charlie suffers from a mitochondrial disease that destroys the muscles and the brain,” explained Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, on Thursday. “There was no available treatment in the United Kingdom, and so Charlie’s parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, raised $1.6 million to fly him to the United States for an experimental treatment. But the hospital argued that the treatment wouldn’t help Charlie, and would prolong his suffering, and that they knew better than the parents who had to suffer through his illness and care for him every single day. Thus, the hospital argued that it would be in Charlie’s best interest to die.”

I’m sure a lot of you have already seen this story. But I wanted to talk about it anyway. I’m not an emotional person, I’m not a parent who gets the feels when they see an article about a sick child. But this one is really bothering me. I am literally tearing up as I’m writing this because I can’t stand it. I feel so awful for this baby and his poor parents that I could just scream.

And if you think this isn’t headed straight for the USA, you aren’t paying attention.

We have a treatment for this – experimental or not – because our system allows for medical innovation. The single payer system doesn’t allow for as much innovation.

Aside from that, think about what happened here. These parents raised $1.6 million dollars to get their child over here for this treatment, and the government in the UK with their single payer system decided they were not going to allow the parents to do this. Nevermind that the parents worked to raise the money. Nevermind that people cared enough about this child to help. Nevermind that there is a treatment available that could potentially help the child. And I’m sorry, whether it ends up helping him or not, the parents have a right to try. They have a right to do everything in their power to save their child. If the child dies anyway, fine. But at least they did everything they could for their child.

This is why I want government our of my healthcare. We’ve had horror stories from our readers and collected stories from around the internet. I told you folks one time about my friend in Canada who had to bring his mother here for hip replacement after their system kept telling her “18 more months,” all the while she was in screaming agony and couldn’t walk. I’ve told you about how, if government is funding a single payer system, they’d have the right to tell you how to live your life, what activities you could take part in, what kinds of cars you could drive, and they could deny you care based on an objection to your lifestyle of choice. And because it is taxpayer funded, they’d have every right in the world to do so.

This is another side effect. The government can now tell you that, regardless of whether or not you have the money, we’re not going to allow you to get treatment because we don’t approve it and think we know better. Maybe it’s your lifestyle, or maybe it’s because it wasn’t our own country’s innovation or treatment. Whatever it is, the government says no, even if it means certain death.

And if you think it won’t happen here, you are a damn idiot.

Supreme Court Will Hear Travel Ban Case

The Supreme Court announced on Monday that it would decide whether President Trump’s revised travel ban was lawful, setting the stage for a major decision on the scope of presidential power.

Mr. Trump’s revised executive order, issued in March, limited travel from six mostly Muslim countries for 90 days and suspended the nation’s refugee program for 120 days. The time was needed, the order said, to address gaps in the government’s screening and vetting procedures.

Two federal appeals courts have blocked critical parts of the order.

The administration had asked that the lower court ruling be stayed while the case moved forward. The court granted part of that request in its unsigned opinion.

The court, in effect, said that foreigners with ties or relationships in the United States would not be prohibited from entering the country. But, those applying for visas who had never been here, or had no family, business or other ties could be prohibited.

German police raid 36 homes for ‘hateful’ social media posts

German police recently raided the homes of 36 people accused of writing “hateful” posts on social media, with most of the raids targeting right-wing individuals.

“Our free society must not allow a climate of fear, threat, criminal violence and violence either on the street or on the internet,” said Holger Münch, president of the Federal Criminal Police Office.

Sounds like a liberal paradise to me.

This isn’t my idea of a “free society,” and if you are reading this, chances are, you agree. But when you let one group decide what is hateful and what constitutes violence, this is what you get… a tyranny where the people still think they are free.

And if you think this isn’t the goal of our current set of SJW snowflakes, you have your head in the sand. Thank God we have a Constitution and a Supreme Court that, so far, are keeping us from getting to this point. But it could be in our lifetimes that Germany’s idea of a “free society” comes here to the USA, making us far less free.

If you think it’s far off, ask Wild Bill for America how his trip to Canada went.

London Mosque Attacker: ‘I Want to Kill All Muslims’

Amin said that when people seized the driver, “he was shouting: ‘All Muslims, I want to kill all Muslims.’ Literally, he said that. Word by word.”

Police said that one man had been arrested at the scene and that no further suspects had been identified.

“People now have a big question about safety in London after all these terrorist attacks, and we want to assure them that they are safe, and that’s why we want to work with the police,” Kozbar said.

“People feel unsafe because after the terrorist attacks of London, Manchester, the increase of Islamophobia and hate crimes,” he added. “This is very worrying to the Muslim community.”

So this happened last night, as you probably already know. And I want to say something about it.

I am glad they are treating this as terrorism. I’m sorry, I am. If you want to fight Islamic extremism, don’t do it by becoming it. And if the quote above is true, if this guy did it because he wants to “kill all Muslims,” then he has stooped to the level as an Islamic extremist and should be handled the same.

However, I also don’t think people feel unsafe because of Islamaphobia alone. I’m sure the Muslim community fears it, and I am sorry for them. But it isn’t the only reason people feel unsafe. There have been several attacks over there recently, and the vast majority were carried out by Islamic extremists.

If the quote is true, I get that the guy is frustrated watching his fellow countrymen get cut down by terrorism. I get that he’s tired of nobody really doing anything because they are too politically correct to do so. Really, I get that. But I can’t agree with it.

Look, a lot of you already know that I cannot blame all Muslims for these terror attacks. I just can’t. Every time I start to think that way, my friend pops into my head and I can’t. I have mentioned my Iraqi friend here before. He came to the USA with his wife and children after he personally came under attack in Iraq because he spent years working with US troops as an interpreter. And he is very proud of the work that he did with them, saying that he felt he was doing the right thing for his home country that he now can’t really go back to. And he speaks highly of our troops, calling them his brothers and sisters. He and I have spoken about religion in the past, and he admitted to me that he was freaked out by the fact that I, as a woman, dress the way I do. Now, by our Western standards, I am a very modest dresser. I wear shorts that reach my knee and I don’t even wear sleeveless shirts. But he told me I wasn’t modest enough for him… but he understands my culture. And, really… the man spent time alone with me, which is also unusual. He never mentioned that and was obviously not bothered by it. He treated me like his equal in every single way. He even acted as my tutor. Hell, the dude would sit with me while I ate dinner even if I was eating pork! He looked like he wanted to be sick, but he did it.

So I can’t say “all Muslims,” because I know at least one who wouldn’t.

This isn’t the way to handle it. Things need to change in Europe. I am sorry for the people of England. Those folks can’t catch a damn break, and I find myself shedding more tears for them than I should have to. I don’t agree with the dispersal of refugees over there, it needs to be done better, they need to find a way to vet these people better, and they need to start accepting and admitting that Islamic terrorism is a thing. Islamic extremists do exist. Saying they exist is not the same as saying “all Muslims.” Saying we need to fight Islamic extremism is not the same as saying, “kill all Muslims.” Saying the words “Islamic extremism” is not Islamaphobic. We need to do away with PC culture and start taking care of our own. England, the English people should always come first. Your citizens – whether they were born into citizenship or became citizens after leaving another country – are always more important. Admitting that all groups – from chess clubs to religions like Islam – have extremists is important. It doesn’t go away by ignoring that. Saying “not all Muslims” is great, but it doesn’t stop the faction of Muslims that do believe this way.

So I’m begging your country as much as I am begging my own…. stop with the PC culture, stop being afraid to offend people, and do something about this. Because Islamic extremism won’t be stopped by it, and the crazy in your own ranks won’t be stopped by it, either.

Guess Who’s Headed to North Korea to Meet with Kim Jong Un

CNN is reporting that former NBA star and longtime weirdo, Dennis Rodman is heading back to North Korea, presumably to visit with his “friend” Kim Jong Un.

NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman is expected to arrive in North Korea Tuesday, according to two officials in that country who spoke to CNN.

CNN spotted Rodman at Beijing International Airport, where he declined to answer questions. Rodman would be arriving in Pyongyang at a time of heightened tension between Washington and Pyongyang, which is currently detaining four Americans.

It’s unclear what the purpose of Rodman’s visit to the secretive country could be, but the eccentric former basketball player — and a former contestant on Dennis Rodman Visits The FOX Business NetworkDonald Trump’s pre-presidency reality TV show “Celebrity Apprentice” — is one of the only Americans to have met current North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

When asked by CNN journalists in Pyongyang, unnamed North Korean officials confirmed that Rodman is expected to arrive in Pyongyang Tuesday. They gave no further details.

I have heard some speculation that he may have been sent there by Washington. And, of course, there is a lot of collective eye rolling.

But I have to admit… I don’t have an issue with Dennis Rodman going over there. I don’t think it would be a bad move for Washington to send him there if they didn’t already set this up. Let’s face it, that fat little twerp likes Rodman. A lot. I don’t know if Rodman actually likes him or not, and I really don’t care. So far, the only person who seems to get anything at all – the only one who can squeeze blood from a turnip, as it were – is Rodman.

There seems to be a relationship here between Dennis Rodman and the fat little twerp, and it is one we could possibly use to our advantage. I like the idea of calming people down without violence, and if Rodman can calm this POS down a little without guns blazing, I’m all for it. It saves us from sending in troops, dropping bombs, wasting money, and mourning our dead.

Look, I’m not saying Dennis Rodman is going to get this guy to drop the bomb testing or stop making threats or stop generally dancing around like a chicken with a corn cob. But any positive aspect we can bring into this peacocking, let’s do it. He just might have the ability to stop something crazy coming out of that country.

 

Puerto Rico Votes to Become 51st State

From Associated Press:

th-flagsPuerto Rico’s governor announced that the U.S. territory has overwhelmingly chosen statehood in a nonbinding referendum Sunday held amid a deep economic crisis that has sparked an exodus of islanders to the U.S. mainland.

Nearly half a million votes were cast for statehood, more than 7,600 for free association/independence and nearly 6,700 for the current territorial status, according to preliminary results. The participation rate was just 23 percent with roughly 2.26 million registered voters, leading opponents to question the validity of a vote that several parties had boycotted.

The economic crisis in Puerto Rico is the main driver here.

Puerto Ricans are fleeing the island nation at an alarming rate and it’s making their economic situation even worse.

Obviously, joining the United States would help that.

It would be great for them. Not sure how great it would be for the USA.
