Disrespectful Cheerleaders Make WWII Veterans At Game Cry – Get Devastating Response In Return

Published

on

Nowadays it’s unavoidable that, to some degree, folks simply get used to occurrences that one time would have elicited howls of protest. Get inescapably thumped on the head often and regularly enough? Your head gets harder, you factor it in and press on.

Take the National Anthem controversy for instance – certain professional athletes continue to kneel in protest during the revered song and not a few Americans barely give that dis a second thought anymore.

Then something happens which has the unintended and unexpected consequence of waking up slumbering people …

Mad World News reports one such development:

Trending: Cory Booker Sexual Assault Accuser Posts Update & We Now Might Know Why He’s So Theatrical

“A dozen cheerleaders from Cornell High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, decided to take a knee during the National Anthem. …”

“Not only were there World War II veterans present at the high school football game, serving as the honor guard, but the veterans had been set up by the Superintendent of the school, Aaron Thomas, who invited them to the game, knowing that his cheerleaders were planning the disgusting protest. However, Thomas along with his cheerleaders would soon realize they had made the biggest mistake of their lives, as their antics would then go on to backfire in a huge way.”

“Shortly after the protest, a journalist by the name of Sarah Slayer caught wind of the incident and decided to make a video of the events, artfully piecing together media clips and details, highlighting how the World War II veterans were so distraught over the disrespect they witnessed at the game, that many of these elderly heroes ‘had tears flowing down their faces.’ ”

“Thomas’ phone line was flooded with irate people from all across America, and within a week, he received over 650 death threats. …  Thomas then reached out to the local media, so he could whine about how Sarah Slayer’s video had made him a victim. He then accused the journalist of piecing together false details about him.” 

“It’s “ripped apart our community … ripped apart my household,” Thomas whined. Unfortunately for him, in addition to being the most hated man in Pittsburg, Thomas was about to also be proven a liar, which you can see from Slayer’s second video that proves that Thomas knew about his cheerleaders’ planned protest, but he did nothing to stop it.”

“Karma still wasn’t quite done calling, however. [P]olice had to be called to do regular patrols around the school, and according to MSN, the school’s homecoming game had to be canceled “amidst major safety concerns.”

There are no rationalizations for death threats or chatter promoting violence in reaction to this incident, obviously – but isn’t it refreshing to see that people are still capable of righteous indignation over the dishonoring what that truly matters?

“Taking offense over refusing to kneel during a song? Gimme a break!” some world weary sophisticates might grouse.  “Getting bent out of shape over a piece of cloth colored red, white and blue? Puh-lease!” others might snap.  “Veterans crying about it? How corny!” 2018’s hardened cynics might scoff.

Then again, the above misanthropes are engaging in the luxury of their smirking and sneering while safe and sound and free – in part owed to the sacrificial efforts of those who have served to protect and preserve America; those implicitly honored in the singing of “The Star Spangled Banner” and the raising of Old Glory at public events – like a high school football game. It’s stunning that blazing reality is lost on so many who are too “evolved” to get all sentimental over patriotic values.

Yet, sometimes “corny” is actually just legitimate respect and appreciation for what someone else has done for you.

Yes, sometimes “sentimental” is the heart reacting appropriately to something of inestimable value that touches us in a way that is hard to contain.

Shedding a tear, indeed, is precisely the proper way to react periodically when an outrage is visited upon a reality that ought, instead, to be esteemed and cherished.

Paying tribute to the American flag, rising to your feet, hand-over-heart and singing along when Francis Scott Key’s composition is performed is merely one exercise of many which ought to remind us there are elements of life that truly matter. They’re designed to elicit a pause and a moment’s reflection so that we don’t forget there is more to life than eating, drinking, sleeping, temporal pleasures – followed by death.

Of this controversy, the principle of the school, while offering an apology, also nervously and mind-bogglingly murmured, “If anything it created a healthy discussion within the walls of our building.” Well, yeah, I suppose that is one upside to an especially scabby event – but it hardly justifies it, doesn’t come close to sanitizing it.

It elicited passionate reactions from both sides, but particularly from those who felt the protests flied in the face of area veterans who were on hand to serve as the honor guard for the game,” MSN reported. “Critics of the protesters later published a video that trickled on to social media directly calling out the teens and leaving some concerned about their safety at Friday’s game.

Again, stirring concern about others’ safety is not cool. Standing up against the flouting of those who put their lives on the line for our great nation? Very, very cool.

In case those who jeer at “God-and-Country” types felt as if “old-fashioned” notions like love of one’s patrimony and basic respect for public conventions and traditions had been put to bed – a bunch of good folk over in the Pittsburgh, PA region have confirmed — it just ain’t so!

BREAKING: Migrant Caravan Swells Massively Overnight – Invasion Imminent At Border

Published

* By

Yesterday we had reports that as many as 2000 Central American migrants had turned back.

According to reports, thousands joined the caravan out of the blue overnight, though. Numbers now range at over 7000 in the group. Apparently Mexican forces are standing down or being overwhelmed.

We need the military on the border ASAP!

The L.A. Times is reporting:

“A caravan of Central American immigrants started walking north into Mexico early Sunday, blowing past police and immigration officials as they continued their journey toward the U.S. border.

A group of several thousand immigrants set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. They were headed for the city of Tapachula, about 18 miles away.

It was unclear whether the police planned to stop the group. At one point, a large contingent of federal police officers blocked the road before retreating. At another point, a small group of police watched as members of the caravan passed, some of them running and skipping.

When a small group of immigration officials tried to stop the caravan to convince its members to apply for political asylum, the caravan swept past them too.

On Friday and Saturday, officials watched as thousands of migrants illegally crossed the Suchiate River that forms the border between Guatemala and Mexico.

Gerardo Hernandez, head of the civil protection agency in the municipality of Suchiate, Chiapas, said 7,233 immigrants were registered over the last three days at a shelter in Ciudad Hidalgo. He said his agency has been asked to help provide the immigrants with food and shelter.

The caravan left the impoverished and crime-ridden Central American nation of Honduras more than a week ago, and its participants began arriving late last week at the Guatemalan border town of Tecun Uman, just across the river from Ciudad Hidalgo.

The migrants say their intent is to cross into the United States. The Trump administration has vowed to stop their advance and has threatened Mexico and Central American countries with economic reprisals if they fail to stop the migrant group.

President Trump has made the caravan a campaign issue at his rallies in the closing weeks of the U.S. midterm election campaign, labeling the assemblage of bedraggled migrants a threat to U.S. security and saying he would call out the military should the migrants make it to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, under pressure from Trump, has said that no migrants will be allowed to enter the country in an “irregular” manner.

On Friday, Mexican authorities put on a show of force when several thousand caravan participants tried to storm the official Mexican border crossing into Ciudad Hidalgo. With tear gas and police in riot gear, Mexico thwarted the attempt to breach the border, an operation that drew praise from Trump.

The caravan is made up mostly of men but also includes hundreds of women and children, some of whom said they were fleeing violence.”

The Gateway Pundit also reported:

“The illegal migrant caravan is sweeping through Chiapas in southern Mexico on Sunday, their numbers having jumped to over 7,000 overnight from just a few thousand as it became apparent the caravan would not be stopped by Mexico. After blocking the migrants on a bridge Friday, Mexican officials allowed the migrants to swim and raft across a river from Guatemala into Mexico Saturday and then regroup in a riverside park. Mexico also allowed over 600 women and children to legally enter for processing on Saturday.

Reports from the caravan state that on two occasions Mexican federal police stood in formation to meet the caravan as the migrants staged a massive march up a highway. As the migrants approached both times the Mexican police stood down and let them pass. A Mexican official was reported to have said they can’t stop 7,200 people.

Kate Linthicum with the Los Angeles Times reported on the two failed attempts to stop the caravan Sunday: “I’m only just realizing the massive scale of this caravan as they march north into Mexico. It’s several thousand people. Just look…A group of immigration agents stopped the caravan to ask them to apply for asylum in Mexico. The caravan blew past them…The caravan just swept past a large contingent of Mexican federal police, who didn’t do anything to stop them…”

State Assembly Just Impeached Their Entire Supreme Court – They’ve Had It!

Published

on

...

* By

In what has to be the feel-good story of the day, The Hill is now reporting that the West Virginia House of Delegates actually voted on Monday night to impeach all of the justices on the state Supreme Court. This decision was prompted by reports of extravagant spending on office renovations.

In a series of votes that of course fell along party lines, lawmakers approved 11 articles of impeachment against the four sitting justices. Sending the process on to the State Senate.

State lawmakers had originally voted to impeach Justice Allen Loughry on eight articles after he and his office spent $363,000 in renovations. This became an issue when he was allegedly found to have lied to the House Finance Committee about having a $42,000 antique desk and computers, owned by the state, transferred to his home. And also was found to be using state vehicles for his personal use.

Here is more on this via Fox News:

“West Virginia lawmakers, seeking to remove every justice on the state’s four-member Supreme Court amid what they called an “over-the-top” spending scandal, impeached three justices on Monday, including Chief Justice Margaret Workman.

One article of impeachment said Workman and Justice Robin Davis signed documents in their roles as chief justices allowing for senior status judges to be paid higher than allowed wages. Lawmakers say the overpayments violated state law and stopped when they were challenged by the Internal Revenue Service.

Earlier Monday, the Republican-led House of Delegates voted 64-33 to send an impeachment article against Davis to the state Senate for trial. The vote came shortly after lawmakers also impeached indicted Justice Allen Loughry by a vote of 64-33. Loughry’s impeachment vote, which came after approximately two hours of debate, took only seconds, NPR reported.

Fox reported that one justice escaped impeachment, but that has now changed:

“Justice Beth Walker is the only current justice who has not been impeached as of Monday evening.

Walker was cleared late Monday of an impeachment article for spending $131,000 on renovations after taking office last year. She still faces another article that accuses her and the three other justices of abusing their authority by failing to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over critical matters. Some lawmakers said they didn’t condone Walker’s spending but said it paled in comparison to other justices.”

The Charlotte Observer is now reporting that another vote was held & Justice Walker has been impeached also:

“The West Virginia House of Delegates has impeached all four of the state’s Supreme Court justices.

The Republican-led House on Monday night impeached Justice Beth Walker and the other justices for abusing their authority. The article says they failed to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over important matters such as working lunches, the use of state vehicles and office computers at home.

Walker was the last of the four justices to be impeached. She had avoided impeachment earlier when the House voted not to pass an article against her for $131,000 in renovations she made after taking office last year.”

Fox News continues:

“The impeachments do not remove the justices from office. The articles will go to the Senate, which can formally remove the justices only by a two-thirds vote.

The charges were largely related to the justices’ use of state funds to conduct office renovations. Davis spent more than $500,000 on her office and Loughry spent more than $363,000 on his.

Loughry is under federal indictment and named in eight impeachment articles, including allegations he lied about taking home a $42,000 antique desk and a $32,000 suede leather couch.

On Monday, Loughry was impeached under six impeachment articles, including for allegedly driving state vehicles for personal use and of using state-owned computers at his home. He was also impeached for his role in assuring higher pay for senior status judges.

Republican Delegate Tom Fast of Fayette County said he had seen the work done in Davis’ office, including track lighting on the floor. He characterized the renovations as “over-the-top” and said the impeachment article “is one of the more easy ones” for him to support.

However, some legislators said they didn’t support impeaching any justice for wasteful spending, only for articles pertaining to lying, cheating or stealing.

Several lawmakers noted that the Supreme Court has a separate budget and is currently allowed to spend as it sees fit. A proposed constitutional amendment this fall would bring the state courts’ budget partly under legislative control.

But State GOP Delegate John Shott, who helped draw up the impeachment articles, said that if West Virginians do not trust their highest court, “we need to take action to try to rebuild that trust.”

Normally, West Virginia has five Supreme Court justices who are elected to serve a 12-year term. However, Menis E. Ketchum resigned from the state Supreme Court in July after he was accused of alleged federal wire fraud. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge of defrauding the state and faces up to 20 years in prison.”

Justice Robin Davis was also impeached after allegedly using $500,000 for office renovations.

Reports are now also adding that state lawmakers had initially overlooked Chief Justice Margaret Workman’s spending of $111,000 on office renovations. So she was also later impeached for her role in allegedly allowing senior-status judges to receive higher wages than allowed by state law. Davis and Loughry have also been accused of this.

Justice Beth Walker was the final justice whom lawmakers voted to impeach after she was found to be guilty of abusing her authority. This article also counted against the other justices. Lawmakers had previously decided to look past her spending $131,000 on office renovations.

The former Justice Menis Ketchum was reported to have stepped down from the bench last month and pleaded guilty to one count of federal wire fraud.

The West Virginia Governor, Republican Jim Justice will be allowed to appoint new justices to replace those who were impeached. He is not required to appoint justices from the same party as the incumbent as well so let the left wing whining begin.
