Gitmo prisoner reveals that Saudi ‘terrorist rehab’ center is a scam ^ | 11/28/2016 | Paul Sperry 

Government has been encouraging previously released prisoners to rejoin the jihad at its terrorist reform school, officially known as the Prince Mohammed bin Naif Counseling and Care Center.
The Obama administration has praised the effectiveness of the Saudi rehab program — which uses “art therapy,” swimming, ping-pong, PlayStation and soccer to de-radicalize terrorists — and conditioned the release of dozens of Gitmo prisoners, including former Osama bin Laden bodyguards, on their entry in the controversial program.
To date, 134 Saudi detainees have been transferred to the Saudi reform camps in Riyadh and Jeddah. Last year, nine Yemeni detainees were sent there, as well, and more are expected to follow over the next two months, as Obama strives to meet his campaign goal of closing Gitmo.

'Diamond-age' of power generation as nuclear batteries developed ^ | 11/27/2016 

New technology has been developed that uses nuclear waste to generate electricity in a nuclear-powered battery. A team of physicists and chemists from the University of Bristol have grown a man-made diamond that, when placed in a radioactive field, is able to generate a small electrical current.
The team have demonstrated a prototype 'diamond battery' using Nickel-63 as the radiation source. However, they are now working to significantly improve efficiency by utilising carbon-14, a radioactive version of carbon, which is generated in graphite blocks used to moderate the reaction in nuclear power plants. Research by academics at Bristol has shown that the radioactive carbon-14 is concentrated at the surface of these blocks, making it possible to process it to remove the majority of the radioactive material. The extracted carbon-14 is then incorporated into a diamond to produce a nuclear-powered battery.
The UK currently holds almost 95,000 tonnes of graphite blocks and by extracting carbon-14 from them, their radioactivity decreases, reducing the cost and challenge of safely storing this nuclear waste.
Dr Neil Fox from the School of Chemistry explained: "Carbon-14 was chosen as a source material because it emits a short-range radiation, which is quickly absorbed by any solid material. This would make it dangerous to ingest or touch with your naked skin, but safely held within diamond, no short-range radiation can escape. In fact, diamond is the hardest substance known to man, there is literally nothing we could use that could offer more protection."
Despite their low-power, relative to current battery technologies, the life-time of these diamond batteries could revolutionise the powering of devices over long timescales. Using carbon-14 the battery would take 5,730 years to reach 50 per cent power, which is about as long as human civilization has existed.

Why The Left Loves Totalitarians Like Fidel Castro

The Federalist ^ | 28 Nov, 2016 | Paul Bonicelli 

Progressives’ and leftists’ outpouring of praise for Fidel Castro at his death was to be expected, although it has been more fulsome, tone-deaf, and cloying than I expected. For just a few examples see President Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
Rational and moral people, however, will rightly ask, “How would anyone aware of Castro’s more than 50 years of human rights abuses mourn the death of a tyrant who was both an intellectual and moral idiot, much less praise his legacy?”
The Left Loves Collectivism I have a few possible answers. First, many people on the Left sold their intellects to socialism and statism long ago. Great numbers of academics, politicians, and entertainers embraced Castro as he rose to power then ruled for decades as a socialist dictator, because he represented the practical application of their ideas.
Also, he clearly irritated the same people who irritated them: conservatives, Republicans, Cold Warriors, etc. Every human rights violation, every social and economic disaster that resulted from his foolish socialist policies, and every military adventure he launched with his oversized Soviet-backed military, was forgiven if not outright praised.
As a graduate student in the early 1990s I marveled at highly educated, decent, and kind men and women in academia forgiving Castro every sin and justifying everything he did because, I suppose, “He’s our guy.” It seemed so childish to me. After all, I thought Gen. Augusto Pinochet was better for Chile than a Soviet-allied Marxist politician would have been, but I hardly excused Pinochet’s human rights crimes or pretended he was perfect. I also wasn’t confused about who was better for U.S. national security interests.

Symbols of a Snowflake Generation

The Winchester Star ^ | 11/17/2016 | Michelle Malkin 

News flash, kids: Things aren’t free. Things cost money. And “free” things provided to you by the government cost other people’s money.

Donald Trump gets it — somewhat. He vows to repeal ObamaCare’s most burdensome federal mandates that are jacking up the price of private health insurance. But he also plans to preserve the most politically popular provisions of the Orwellian-titled Affordable Care Act, including the so-called “slacker mandate.” It’s the requirement that employer-based health plans cover employees’ children until they turn 26 years old.
That’s right: Twenty-freaking-six.
Is it any wonder why we have a nation of dependent drool-stained crybabies on college campuses who are still bawling about the election results one week later?
Trump briefly mentioned during a “60 Minutes” interview on CBS this weekend that the slacker mandate “adds cost, but it’s very much something we’re going to try and keep.” That’s because most establishment Republicans in Washington, D.C., are resigned to keeping it. Once the feds hand out a sugary piece of cradle-to-grave entitlement candy, it’s almost impossible to snatch it back.
Who pays for this unfunded government mandate? As usual, it’s responsible working people who bear the burden.
Earlier this year, the National Bureau of Economic Research found the No Slacker Left Behind provision resulted in wage reductions of about $1,200 a year for workers with employer-based insurance coverage — whether or not they had adult children on their plans. In effect, childless working people are subsidizing workers with adult children who would rather stay on their parents than get their own.

Repeal Congress’ special exemption from Obamacare, kill two birds with one stone!

The Washington Times ^ | November 23, 2016 | Jenny Beth Martin 

Repealing Congress’ special exemption from Obamacare regularly polls at the 90+ percent level, and for good reason — the illegal ruling by OPM once again allowed Members of Congress (and their staffs) to live by a different set of rules than those they imposed on the rest of America.
Worse, by exempting the legislative branch from the pernicious effects of this particular law, it allows Members and their staffs to avoid the personal pain (financial and health) imposed by the monstrosity they imposed on the rest of us, and, by doing so, delays its inevitable repeal.
The good news is, President Trump won’t have to wait for congressional action on this — he can undo the illegal ruling by simply signing his name to a Presidential Memorandum directing the OPM to reverse its 2013 rule considering Congress a small business, which directed that, consequently, “the DC Health Link Small Business Market administered by the DC Health Benefit Exchange Authority, is the appropriate SHOP from which Members of Congress and designated congressional staff will purchase health insurance in order to receive a Government contribution.”
Note — “Government contribution,” in the language of those who live outside the Washington Beltway, should be read as “illegal taxpayer-funded subsidies.”

Only You Can Stop Californication

Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 11-28-2016 | MOTUS 

Seriously, it is approaching a month and leftists are still foaming at the mouthcoloring outside the lines, and diaper pinning their lapels. Frankly I think it would be more helpful if they used them to pin their yaps shut. Or maybe their noses.
“I said, ‘stick a fork in it’ honey, but I guess that works too.”
And while the despair is felt everywhere you find a liberal, it’s perhaps worst in California.  Here’s a first-person account of what it’s like to be a conservative in America’s theme park for liberal hipsters these days:
The day was full of whining and bewilderment from the lawyers I work with, with much vulgar contempt for Trump voters…I kept my head down and did not say much.
I went out for lunch, and was astonished to see high schoolers marching under Mexican Flags, and “Pride” Flags on Market Street. In the actual street! My first thought was that this is no place for children, as Market Street has many bums urinating and young ladies openly injecting drugs into their arms. Who let them out of school?…
At the end of the day, I took the elevator down with silent strangers. There were hipsters, young people lucky enough to be employed in the new information (advertising?) economy, the new “masters of the universe”, able to afford San Francisco and things. At the last moment, a guy looking like Pajama Boy, but dressed for work in skin tight pants, cool shoes, untucked shirt and full brimmed hat,

announced, “dark times ahead”. Such is the wisdom of children…

Nose-crayola“No, hon, take the Crayola out of your nose and color in the pretty book, okay?”
My colleagues, lawyers all, informed and smart and good people almost all (I know, cue the guffaws) are reporting “massive voter suppression” in 33 states. Massive vote tampering, etc. (Fake news might actually be a real problem). A very handsome, elegant, black man with an impeccable British accent is reporting hostile glares and Uber discrimination on the streets of San Francisco! An Indian women is afraid of internment camps and trying to come up with an escape plan. The worst was a lawyer reporting to our boss that he had purchased a gun “to protect his minority friends”…  - Richochet
Actually San Francisco is different from the rest of the country only in respect to the homogeneity (as in milk, not gender preference) of their liberalism. All across America wherever Progressives gather the reaction has been the same. And as they always think they comprise the majority, who could possibly object to their spouting off over their deep despair, hatred for Trump and sense of loss?
I don’t know about the rest of the country butt this old joke (h/t Rodin) about France might explain California:
The Brits, Germans, Spanish and Italians all complained to God about His Creation: France. “Why,” they asked,”did He put so many wonderful things in France, while only putting a few good things in their own countries?” God responded that, “Yes, it is true that I put many wonderful things in France, but then I balanced it out by populating it with the French people.”

Texas governor says he will ban sanctuary cities

The Hill ^ | 11/28/2016 

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) is pledging to ban sanctuary cities in his state as other governors and mayors promise to continue sheltering illegal immigrants.
"I'm going to sign a law that bans sanctuary cities," Abbott tweeted on Sunday.
"Also I've already issued an order cutting funding to sanctuary cities."
Abbott was responding to a Twitter user who questioned whether the Texas governor could do anything to reverse Austin's pledge to remain a sanctuary city. During his presidential campaign, President-elect Donald Trump pledged to deport millions of immigrants.
He said during an interview shortly after his victory he would prioritize deporting or jailing any undocumented immigrants who were members of gangs or had criminal records.
He also vowed during the campaign to block federal dollars from cities that give sanctuary to undocumented immigrants.
Democratic governors and mayors signaled earlier this month that they aren't prepared to go along with the Trump administration's plans.

THERE WILL BE NO RECOUNT IN PENNSYLVANIA: Jill Stein Perpetrating Election Fraud.

Jander Research ^ | 11/28/2016 | Written and Researched by Ren Jander, J.D. 

Everything you've been reading about a possible recount of the 2016 Presidential Election in Pennsylvania is wrong. There will be no "recount" in Pennsylvania. Book that. It is not speculation. It is legal fact. The broad spectrum of analysis from the blogosphere, Facebook and Twitter is pathetic. Seeing non-lawyer journalists mangle complicated election statutes so brazenly is not only sad but dangerous. It's giving an emotionally triggered part of the electorate false hope. And it simultaneously creates conditions for the destabilization of the nation when hyper-emotional election expectations are thwarted, as they most certainly will be.
As for Jill Stein's successful public cry for millions, she claims at her website that "fundraising for Pennsylvania's voter-initiated recount" has already been complete. The statement is fraudulent on it's face, in that she has been raising a ton of money when, in fact, there will be no "voter-initiated recount". According to Pennsylvania law, no "recount" or "recanvassing" is possible. Trump won by more than .5% of the vote. Had he won by less - according to Section 1404(g) of Pennsylvania Election Code - there could have been an automatic recount ordered.

Democrats, Not Trump, Racialize Our Politics

City Journal ^ | November 27, 2016 | By Heather McDonald 

Democratic pundits are calling on their party to court working-class and non-coastal whites in the wake of this month’s electoral rout. But the Democratic Party is now dominated by identity politics, which defines whites, particularly heterosexual males, as oppressors of every other population in the U.S. Why should the targets of such thinking embrace an ideology that scorns them?
The most absurd Democratic meme to emerge from the party’s ballot-box defeat is the claim that it is Donald Trump, rather than Democrats, who engages in “aggressive, racialized discourse,” in the words of a Los Angeles Times op-ed. By contrast, President Barack Obama sought a “post-racial, bridge-building society,” according to New York Times reporter Peter Baker. Obama’s post-racial efforts have now “given way to an angry, jeering, us-against-them nation,” writes Baker, in a front-page “news” story.
Tell that valedictory for “post-racial bridge-building” to police officers, who have been living through two years of racialized hatred directed at them in the streets, to the applause of many Democratic politicians. Black Lives Matter rhetoric consists of slogans like: “CPD [Chicago Police Department] KKK, how many children did you kill today?” “F___ the police,” and “Racist, killer cops.” Officers have been assassinated by Black Lives Matter-inspired killers who set out to kill whites in general and white police officers in particular. Gun murders of law enforcement officers are up 67 percent this year through November 23, following five ambushes and attacks over the November 18 weekend that left a San Antonio police officer and a U.S. marshall dead. A few days before those weekend shootings, anarchist wannabes in Austin led a counting chant based on the template: “What’s better than X dead cops? X + 1 Dead Cops.”

Losers Who Won't Lose: What Are The Odds Of A Successful Hillary Recount?

Zero Hedge ^ | 11/27/2016 | Submitted by Salil Mehta via Statistical Ideas blog 

Submitted by Salil Mehta via Statistical Ideas blog,

President-elect Trump won 306 electoral votes versus Hillary Clinton's 232 (24% less electoral votes).  Similar to 2000, the surrendering party then reversed course and put the nation through a recount, just for the sake of it.  What are the odds that such an exercise here would yield successful for Ms. Clinton?  Based on statistical randomness of re-assessing voter intent, the chance of Hillary emerging as the victor is far less than 10%.
Anything can happen, but these lean odds do not rise to the level of putting our peaceful democracy into the hands of a temptuous recount scheme every time a stung party loses (let alone misleadingly blame it on something else from Russia's Putin, to sexism, to "in hindsight the popular vote would be reasonable", to FBI Director Comey).  All Americans should instead focus on how the 6 states that flipped this election, were all economically ignored and all flipped to Donald Trump
The only viable path for a Hillary Clinton victory at this stage is to astoundingly uncover a wide-spread (across three states) fraud.  And that's equally unlikely, since the basis for the voting aberrations occurred in less populated counties and anyway the three states employ three different voting mechanisms, so the fraud would have had to somehow occur through different transmission vehicles (paper voting, and electronic voting) and we would require a speedy judicial resolution for states such as Pennsylvania that sidestepped back-up recordings from their direct voting equipment.
We should note the following statistical facts about the electoral vote in the three recount states:
  • 10 votes, Wisconsin (Trump leads by 0.9 percentage points)
  • 20 votes, Pennsylvania (Trump leads by 1.1 percentage points)
  • 16 votes, Michigan (Trump leads by 0.2 percentage points)
Given that Mr. Trump won by 74 electoral votes, Ms. Clinton would need to flip all three states noted above, in order to liquidate this deficit (i.e., >74/2 = >37 votes).  The leads described above however, among 4.4 million voters from these three states, is highly statistically significant on a state-level (and certainly when all three states are combined).  It would be remarkably unlikely (>5event) that we would arbitrarily second-guess every one of these millions of voters' intents and, convert any (certainly let alone all) of these three states.
Hillary must be cognizant of this improbability, and so is piggy-backing off of the second most reasonable recount rationale: not that errors in intent occurred, but rather straight-fraud on such a scale that would flip most of these states.  While tempting for true Democrat supporters, this fraud scenario is of course dubious.  Because for it to work, we would need to suppose that such fraud occurred in three different ways at once:
  • Michigan is a paper-ballot state (no electronic voter equipment hacking) so fraud is virtually unlikely to show at all
  • Wisconsin does have paper back-ups recorded though the counties that are most heterogeneous, are lesser-populated and not so wildly-off probabilistically
  • Pennsylvania has similar issues to Wisconsin, except they haven't recorded all of their votes in an auditable back-up so judicial hurdles must be overcome
The bottom line is everything must go right here, in all three state recounts (between proving fraud and getting mathematical help from wide-spread voter intent errors), in order to better align towards a Donald Trump downfall.  And even if this all occurred, accounting for all of these statistical adjustments, the probability of a Hillary Clinton triumph is still quite low.
Lower than the odds that comic Nate Silver and all of the other "pollsters" gave to Mr. Trump throughout this election season.  It is these same pollsters and juvenile campaign "scientists" who completely mis-forecasted Ms. Clinton's path, who are now gasping for a recount phenomenon.  This was nicely articulated in a recent Bloomberg article here:

Shock Report: George Soros Behind Hillary Election Steal

The Gateway Pundit ^ | 11/27/16 | Jim Hoft 

George Soros is connected to Hillary’s election steal per information from a new report. 
As reported earlier the election steal was put into motion when a group of  ‘experts’ reviewed the election results and then reported that there appeared to be election fraud.  However,  a member from the group of ‘experts’ happens to be voting-rights attorney John Bonifaz.  Bonifaz also happens to be connected with George Soros when he launched the National Voting Rights Institute In 1994.  Bonifaz was the Institute’s  President.
This is all certainly shocking but no surprise.  Hillary and Soros are in this for the steal.

Colleges delay classes and exams, offer stress-healing therapies after Trump victory! ^ | Nov. 12, 2016 | not stated 

As Americans comes to terms with the election results, students seem to need extra time and care to cope with Donald Trump’s victory. Colleges across the US have canceled classes and exams, offered disaster counseling and dog and coloring book therapies. '
Since Wednesday, schools have been trying to help students recover from election day, which for some ended in a shocking outcome.
Classes were canceled or postponed the morning after the elections at some colleges due to understanding that students had stayed up late to wait for the results. Some professors even decided that holding exams would be counterproductive because students complained about “serious stress.”
One University of Michigan psychology professor postponed an exam until November 16. “However one feels about the results of this important election, it’s clear that it (and the period leading up to it) is/has been very distracting and upsetting to many students,” professor John Snodgrass wrote in an email, cited by the College Fix. “I’ve been receiving many emails in recent hours from students requesting to delay the exam due to associated serious stress.”

Donald Trump and The Rise of The Alpha Male ^ | November 27, 2016 | Susan Smith 

After eight years of being instructed in every aspect of our lives by an almost exclusively revolting bunch of metrosexuals, pajama boys, and mom-jean wearing plouffes, the alpha male has returned - with a vengeance.
And in stereo - there's the sweet-seeming tough guy, Mike Pence, who in said nice-guy pose completely annihilated Senator Tim Kaine, his opponent at the time, in their single Vice Presidential debate.
Then there's the one and only Donald J. Trump. There truly is no one else like him, now, nor it seems, has there ever been. He is a true tough guy; perhaps the ultimate alpha male.
Take the recent liberal idiocy involving the play, the cast and audience, of 'Hamilton,' currently on Broadway in New York. The venue being Upper East Side Manhattan, they were all lefties, and when newly elected conservative VP elect had the temerity to set foot on their turf, with conservative children in tow, our progressive friends proceeded to make fools of themselves by booing, jeering and delivering sophomoric lectures. Vice President Elect Pence, class act that he always is, reacted to the verbal assault with elegant restraint, as he always does. When later questioned about it by the lib media, he said, "I'll let others decide if that venue was the appropriate one," further humiliating the idiots involved.
Then the I-don't-fool-around tough guy entered the fray. President Elect Trump, through his favorite social media communication of choice, tweets, expressed ultimate alpha male displeasure by saying: "Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing. This should not happen!"
Then by saying: "The Theater must always be a safe and special place. The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!"
And then by saying: "Very rude and insulting of Hamilton cast member to treat our great future V.P. Mike Pence to a theater lecture. Couldn't even memorize lines!"
You have got to love it.
A standard alpha male trait is, in fact, protecting and defending his peeps, and once again, Donald Trump comes through.
Even the gays in the new world order of alpha males coming to you in 2017 are tough guys - look at Milo Yiannopoulos, for example. Technically, he is a British subject, but he works for an American company, (Breitbart), and more specifically, he very much admires Trump and has championed him as our next President from the very beginning. During his rather tumultuous tenure in the limelight, Milo has endured in-your-face encounters from entire groups of hostile protestors and rioters; innumerable death threats; verbal and near physical assaults of all kinds worldwide and through it all has maintained his outrageous and quite wonderful sense of humor, along with his incredible debating skill. Milo is purposefully flamboyantly gay; in fact, he named his most recent excursion in international proselytizing his "Dangerous Faggot" tour. He most enjoys going to college campi where the lefties loathe him, and mixing it up, as it were.
As an example of Milo in practice, during the recent absurd attacks on Breitbart's Steve Bannon as Trump's new Presidential advisor, the lefties in the media kept repeating three outrageous (actually very funny) headlines on the political site Breitbart as prime examples of what a racist, sexist, homophone, etc., Bannon was. These headlines, Milo announced to all who would listen, that they were not Bannon's, but his. The young and gorgeous (by his own accounting) (actually he is) new media superstar was quite miffed that he didn't get all the credit for these barn busters: "Bill Kristol: Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew"; "A Short List of Black Lives Matter's Cop-Killing Heroes"; and "Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy."
Before the left took charge, we used to have a plethora of real men in this country; in fact, we seem to have specialized in them. George Washington, Andrew Hamilton, the Marquis de Lafayette (officially designated as an Honorary American, and buried in American soil, by his choice, in Paris) and so many other extraordinary men at the time of our Founding, were alpha males all. They, to a man, exhibited remarkable courage and strength, both in character and in action, in a time of life or death for them, and for the country they were working so diligently, and at such great peril, to found.
From their example, among other things, alpha males learned to make difficult decisions in accordance with common sense, and not popular thinking. For alpha males, it is a natural reaction to protect the young, the weak and the innocent, a category that used to include women. Alpha males regard their lives as secondary to their honor, and love other people and certain concepts more than they love themselves.
Alpha males learned to act in accordance to what they know is right, and what is wrong, and they have been known to give their lives for things they love, like nations and such. Alpha males are, in fact, indispensable in America, as can be observed, always with admiration and often awe, throughout our history.
For a nation who has desperately needed alpha males not only to continue to survive, but also to remain in place as the last best hope of mankind, to see their return to leadership roles is nothing short of magnificent.
These men can be found not only in our new leaders, but also among our fathers, our uncles, our brothers, our sons and our grandfathers.
These exceptional specimens of the male animal indeed fight for the things in which they believe, and possess the courage and steadfastness to stand up to any opposition, no matter how strong or how wrong, in fighting for what they know is right.
Alpha males hunt, and think that it is a good thing; they also understand the significance of and the freedom provided by the Second Amendment of our Constitution. Alpha males are competitive and can be fiercely so, and alpha males strive to excel, in fact demand excellence in themselves in everything they do. Alpha males command, and they also follow orders, as they understand a necessary chain of command. Alpha males can be fearless, and, as a genre, display this both intellectually and physically.
Alpha males don't indulge in 'sensitivity training,' nor do they go to shrinks. These men don't reveal everything about themselves early or easily, if ever, and they don't feel that reticence about oneself is a character flaw. They actually don't think in terms of character flaws. Alpha males don't get depressed, or if they do they don't let anyone know, nor do they use behavior modification drugs, most likely never having heard of them, because they figure things out, no matter how daunting, and do whatever it takes.
Alpha males reject bureaucratic orders in general; for example, to refrain from eating 'transfat;' as they most likely don't even know what it is, but they would probably love it if they ate it. Alpha males make decisions by, for and based on their own learned judgment and their moral and intellectual foundations, and the only input they allow in this process is the people and the things, (like their country), about which they care.
They make no attempt to get in touch with their feminine side, as they probably didn't know they had one, (if informed that they did, would most likely recoil in horror), and yet have the strength of character to be the gentlest of men with those they love.
No matter how prodigious the efforts have been to teach American youth that manliness is not a good thing, the true American spirit has superseded this fallacy in our young men, and the genre has survived. The resilience of alpha males can be observed not only in their performance in battle, and in leadership, through the Centuries, but in their determination to survive in the face of relentless political correctness of the last 60 years. This last has proved to be one of their most difficult battles, and one that just might have been won with the election to the Presidency of the ultimate politically incorrect alpha male.
Perhaps the greatest thing about alpha males is that we can put our faith in them, and for a while there was very little remaining in America in which we could put our faith. When we know that alpha males are at the forefront, we can stop being terrified at the relentless destruction of our nation; we can stop being angry and frustrated while the left marched ahead with their agenda against the consent of the governed; and we can stem our agony as we watched helplessly while our great civilization disintegrated.
We can now remember what it was like to, truly, have hope.

Veterans protest flag removal at Hampshire College

22WWLP ^ | 11/27/2016 
Amherst, Mass. (WWLP) – At least one thousand veterans gathered in Amherst this afternoon to protest the removal of the American flag at Hampshire College. 22news spoke to protesters about why they strongly disagreed with the college’s decision.
Freedom is not free. That’s the lesson that hundreds of veterans, their families and friends and other local residents hoped to teach students at Hampshire College Sunday afternoon.
Jerry Maguire, Veteran said, “They took down my flag, they have a right to that, I’m here to defend their right to do that but I want them to understand how bad that hurts me.”
Hundreds gathered to show their support of the American flag and what it stands for after the College removed the flag on campus earlier this week following the presidential election results. A decision by the college that outraged many.
David Soucy, a Veteran told 22News, “I was in Iraq 18 months. I got hurt, spent time at Walter Reed. I came home and there’s no way I’ll let anyone take down the flag, no way. It means a lot to me and my brothers.”
People came from all over New England to attend this protest. The news of the flag being taken down upset Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno who stood in solidarity with veterans Sunday.
Mayor Domenic Sarno mentioned, “For the students here and the president and board of trustees have risen from what the veterans sacrificed, this flag and not to fly the flag on this campus if you were in some other countries around the world it would be handled very, very differently.”
The protests remained peaceful with the exception of one incident, when the protesters went to take a group photo one man sat in the middle of everyone making obscene gestures.
That man wouldn’t confirm if he was a student. The college’s president did not attend the demonstration.

Hypocrite Megyn Kelly: 'I Have No Political Ideology. I'm A Soulless Lawyer At Heart'

PJ Media ^ | Michael van der Galien 

Sure, Megyn:
"I am not an ideologue. I always laugh because when I was coming up the ranks at Fox News, the left thought I was always in the tank for the Republicans because they always see you through a certain prism. And then during this year of Donald Trump, now the right thinks I’m in the tank for the Never Trumpers or the liberals. But the truth is, I’m not in the tank, I’m not swimming in the tank at all. I’m off to the side of the tank. I don’t even have my bathing suit on. I’m just watching the tank…I have no political ideology. I’m a soulless lawyer at heart. I can see both sides of every argument.""
All those who believe Megyn, please raise your hand. No one? Ah. That's what I thought.
I watched the debates and I've watched quite a lot of "The Kelly File." As such, I know what her ideology is: establishmentarianism. That's what Megyn Kelly is all about. She loves the establishment of both parties. That's clear from the way she approaches them ... and that's also one of the major reasons why Rupert Murdoch loves her as much as he does; after all, he too is an establishmentarian. The only reason Fox News eventually decided to support Trump is that they realized they couldn't bring him down. When you can't beat them, join them.
