A traffic sign at the base of the Pulaski Bridge in Greenpoint briefly joined The Resistance. Is it a sign of the times or simply par for the course for the northernmost borough in Brooklyn? Someone rearranged a giant Department of Transportation light up billboard the New York City borough to say “F-ck Trump” and the message remained unchanged for more than twelve hours.
The sign was located at the foot of the Pulaski Bridge and had been there for approximately a week to warn travelers of bridge closures. But on Thursday? It had a much different message to share.

According to the Department of Transportation’s website, the Pulaski Bridge is closed to vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists until September 7, “to facilitate NYCDOT Bridges pedestrian and bicycle improvements.”
A DOT spokesperson stated the sign does not belong to the agency and is the responsibility of the contractor who owns it. Yet one New Yorker snapped a photo of what appears to be a city official tinkering with the back of the errant billboard.
“A DOT guy is trying to turn it off,” wrote @newyorks—ty on Twitter. “He says he doesn’t know how. Lol”
The sign’s new message was posted just a day after President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was convicted of eight counts of bank and tax fraud, though a mistrial was declared on the remaining 10 charges. Former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen also pled guilty to five counts of tax evasion and one count of making a false statement to a financial institution.
Cohen also pled guilty to one count of making an excessive campaign contribution. The contribution occurred on Oct. 27, 2016 — the same day Cohen finalized a payment to adult film-star Stormy Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement over an affair she claims she had with Trump many years prior to his presidency or life in politics.
According to the New York Post reactions to the sign were varied –
“I thought this was pretty funny. These signs are normally used for direction or order,” said Andrew Rappa, 24, of Greenpoint. “It’s a result of everything that’s been happening in our government.”
Marek Jablonski of Ridgewood, Queens, said that he voted for Trump, but the tax-fraud conviction of former campaign manager Paul Manafort and longtime fixer Michael Cohen’s copping to campaign finance felonies this week were the last straw — and that Trump has lost his support.
“There are no kings left,” he said, lamenting the lack of honor among members of the administration.
Another gawker balked at the display.
“If you hate him, fine — that’s your personal opinion — but that’s taking it to the extreme,” a Woodside, Queens, resident who gave his name as Anthony said of the sign. “Even though [Trump] does terrible things, it’s against the law.”
The sign was tampered with Wednesday night, according to a DOT rep, who said at it was fixed by 3 p.m. Thursday but denied any responsibility.
“This sign belongs to a contractor and was addressed,” said spokesman Scott Gastel. “It’s the contractor’s responsibility to maintain those, including repairs and clarifications.”
The hacked sign seems to be par for the course for so-called Resistance action. Just a month ago President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed by a man wielding a pickaxe. This also comes as members of the Trump administration have seen a steady increase in incidents where they have been accosted at restaurants, heckled in the street, and threatened at their homes.
Many of these incidents have caused a widespread public debate over the tenor of political discourse with some calling for a return to civility and yet others attempting to justify even more violent action against those with whom they disagree. Critics argued that accosting public officials in public to threaten or heckled were destructive and served to amplify division and political tensions. Yet proponents of the public protests, such as Rep. Maxine Waters (CA-D) have previously argued that the egregious nature of the Trump administration’s immigration policies justified the harassment.
A Republican congressional candidate body slams a reporter. A Democratic party state chairman hurls obscenities at both the president and dissidents in his own party at a public meeting.
Speakers are chased off college campuses by those who disagree with them. Lawmakers in both parties find they can barely hold town hall meetings in their own districts because they are so likely to be shouted down by hecklers. Social media has become a forum where insults are the norm and outright threats not uncommon.
How does one return to civility when it seems that the world is growing increasingly uncivil?
Immigrant Actress Says She’ll Leave The U.S. And Not Just Because She Hates Trump
Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron has been a citizen of our great nation for more than a decade, after leaving South Africa for a better life in America. Now, she’s wanting out and nobody is stopping her, but she wants everyone to know why she’s leaving and others should high tail it out of here too. Theron has identified what she feels is an imminent threat to humanity in this country and is more than just President Donald Trump, who she’s definitely not a fan of.
The successful actress has enjoyed all the perks of being an American citizen including an incredible career. More important than her acting chops are her two black children she’s adopted. She doesn’t feel that they are safe here in the U.S. and is at least talking about leaving, but like all other anti-Trump celebs, she probably won’t make good on her announcement and actually leave. She just likes the attention of complaining about this country, this time citing a new reason.
American News Central reports:
Charlize Theron was born in South Africa during the time of apartheid. She knows what racism is like.
Theron gained American citizenship just over a decade ago, however, she’s not that proud of her country or her president.
According to Charlize, she’s considering leaving the United States because it’s just too dang racist. Her two adopted black kids shouldn’t have to live in such an evil country!
She said this during an interview with far-left nutball Chelsea Handler.
When Charlize Theron isn’t making really dumb statement about gun control she apparently passes the time by making really dumb statements about race. The whitest person you’ve ever seen says there are parts of America that are so racist that she won’t go there and worries that this racism may drive her from the country entirely. It should be noted that she is from South Africa where white people are killed for the color of their skin and white farmers are driven from their land by angry blacks.
Theron sat down with her drunken leftist friend and equal foe of Trump’s as she is, to commiserate over how awful they feel that America has become. This “safe space” interview is rich with leftist insanity.
Chelsea Handler: You’re raising two children of color. Obviously, coming from South Africa, you know a lot about racial inequality, but what are your thoughts on Black Lives Matter and our current climate?
Charlize Theron: Being raised during the apartheid era in South Africa made me so hyperaware of equality and human rights. Of course, I have two black kids, but that was always something I was passionate about. I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. But racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal. There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn’t take it. I wouldn’t travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that’s really problematic. There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I’m like, If this continues, I might have to [leave America]. Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel unsafe.
Theron’s children are among the most privileged kids in America guarded by people protecting them and likely a security wall or fence around their home. Her children are not in any danger with Trump as the president who has done nothing to make the country more racist with him in office. The only people perpetuating racism in America are liberals like her who are lying to their children and telling them that America is a racist place. Instilling fear in little ones like this is what’s really unsafe.
If Theron wants to fix a racism issue, she should look at her home country and start there. That’s where it really is dangerous, but she will just stay right here in America where it’s safe and complain about Trump for attention.
Real American Tom Selleck Has Had Enough Of Rosie Trashing Trump, Hits Her Where It Hurts
Rosie O’Donnell tends to stick her foot in her mouth every time she opens it. It’s as if her foot was metal, and her mouth is a magnet. I guess it’s better than having her head shove where the sun doesn’t shine. It’s no surprise that O’Donnell is as far left as they come. She has made many inflammatory remarks on subjects she really doesn’t have a clue about. You can only imagine what her morning routine must be like. Waking up, pissed off looking in the mirror and pointing at herself ” You can do it, Rosie, Republicans are the enemy, You’re a Goddess”. I’ve got news for Rosie, there isn’t a bone in my body that thinks you’re a Goddess.
Day after day, night after night Rosie takes to Twitter and attacks President Trump, as well as his 62 million supporters.

I think it’s time Rosie is locked up in a mental hospital for a very long time because this woman is beyond couch time. No therapist can handle the insanity this woman spews. Rosie, along with 99% of Hollywood are all on the same brain wave, and it’s scary. It’s no surprise Kanye West had a mental breakdown. If I lived in Hollywood I would probably do the same.
The now-canceled “Rosie O’Donnell Show” on NBC allowed Rosie to tell the world just how biased, and hateful she was as a person. It’s no surprise that Rosie’s show was canceled. The saying goes that if you live in Hollywood you can’t be a Conservative or a Gun owner. I think Tom Selleck found that out the hard way. Selleck appeared on the show once to talk about his new movie that was about to hit the big screen. Instead of talking about the show, Rosie decided to corner, and interrogate Mr. Selleck for appearing in an NRA commercial.
Via Capitalist Magazine:
In left-leaning Hollywood, one could more safely come out of the closet and admit to child molestation than a support of the Second Amendment. For Selleck’s colossal sin of being in Hollywood and conservative, the “Queen of Nice” jumped on Selleck the way Jeffrey Dahmer attacks a Chateaubriand.
O’Donnell: “But you can’t say that guns don’t bear responsibility. … Why would the NRA be against assault rifles? This is a gun that can shoot five bullets in a second. This is the gun that those boys brought into the school. Why the NRA doesn’t say as a matter of compromise: ‘We agree. Assault weapons are not good.’”
Selleck: “I can’t speak for the NRA –”
O’Donnell: “But you’re their spokesperson, Tom. You have to be responsible for what they say.”
Selleck: “I’m not a spokesperson –”
O’Donnell: “… But you can’t say that ‘I will not take responsibility for anything the NRA represents’ if you’re saying that you’re gonna do an ad for the NRA.”
Selleck: “… You’re carefully skirting the issue. It’s an act of moral vanity, Rosie, to assume that someone who disagrees with your political agenda to solve our problems cares any less or is any less –”
O’Donnell: “I never said you cared less. Tom, I don’t think you care less. Nor do I think the men in the NRA cared less. … I simply said, why can there not be a compromise?”
Selleck: “There is a compromise. There’s a compromise in enforcing laws, there’s a compromise in not allowing kids with guns in schools. The problem is, and what you don’t seem to realize. … Look, we all hang out with people we agree with, and you have a very one-sided view of the fact, but what you don’t understand –”
O’Donnell: “As does the NRA, and the people you hang out within the NRA have a one-sided view, as well.”
Had O’Donnell allowed him to speak, Selleck might have mentioned that people use guns perhaps as often as 1 million times per year for defensive purposes, undoubtedly preventing large numbers of murders.
Selleck might have said that Scotland and Ireland, countries with tough gun laws, have higher murder rates than the United States. Or that Switzerland, with a per-capita gun ownership higher than ours, has a lower murder rate.
Or that studies show that a woman who resists her attacker with a gun stands a better chance of avoiding injury or death. Or that convicted felons, when polled, say they are less likely to attack an armed person or enter a house where a gun is present. Or that Rosie O’Donnell does commercials for K-Mart, where one can purchase a rifle.
A piece of work, emotional liberals. – Capitalist Magazine
The NRA has been attacked for years for standing up to the Federal Government and making sure our Second Amendment rights are protected. There is no greater cause by the left than the one to take our Gun Rights away. The progressives know that as long as we keep in bare arms they can not control our lives like they want. Over the last four decades they have slowly started to disarm us, but with the election of Donald J. Trump, their efforts have failed. President Trump spoke at the National NRA Convention in Dallas, Texas this week. It’s nice to see someone in high office standing up for the rights given to us by God.
