Please Don’t Feed the Alligators. It Just Encourages Them.

The Deep State media/government complex (DSC for short) would have you believe that Donald Trump is more dangerous than the little potbellied pig from NoKo with his new nuclear toy warheads. Probably because Kim Jong Un has black friends:
dennis rodman kim jong un
and everyone knows Donald Trump is a racist. Of course this is the same DSC that, because they didn’t pick DJT to win would have you believe that he won only by cheating and collusion with Russia.
And although KJU could annihilate us on a whim, what really terrifies the Deep State Complex is Donald Trump: because only he can drain the swamp.

OMG! OMG! He’s pulled the plug!
And if he pulls the plug and drains the swamp they know how vulnerable they will be, which is why they are fighting with everything they’ve got to preserve their safe, comfortable, benefit rich habitat.

And everyone knows that endangering a creature’s natural habitat makes you worse than  a global warming denier…and Hitler.
do not feed alligatorsAll of our alligators are dangerous, and they’ve always got their hands out.
Please drain the swamp President Trump, and send them all packing.
alligatorHere’s a nice little valise you can pack all your ill gotten gains in and go home.

Democrat Debbie’s Stunning Fall From Power. Dems Want Her to “Go Away” (she's political poison)

independentsentinel.com ^ | Aug 11, 2017 | S. Noble 

EXCERPT--- There is no place for Debbie Wasserman Schultz in House leadership or statewide office amid stories about the infamous Pakistani IT clan. More egregiously, she won’t explain why she kept Imran Awan on her payroll six months after she was told about the investigation into him, his family, and friends. She finally fired the grossly overpaid tech July 25, just one day after authorities arrested him on a seemingly unrelated mortgage fraud charge.
Dems don’t understand D/W/S's puzzling statements and political missteps....claiming she was a victim of “right wing media” and Awan was a victim of Islamophobia. “We wish she would go away and stop being so public by doubling down on negative stories,” said Nikki Barnes.
The Florida progressive believes D/W/S left the national party “in shambles” while chair, culminating with the hack of DNC servers and the release of embarrassing WikiLeaks in the 2016 campaign. As for Wasserman Schultz’s defense, Barnes said “none of this makes sense. It doesn’t sound like racial profiling … there must have been something in it for her.” Barnes said the Awan case is not just hurting D/W/S, it’s drawing negative attention to a party trying to recover from the losses and for the Bernie-DNC battle.
"DNC now means a lot of things, all negative, because of her reign," Barnes said. “This adds to D/W/S being rebranded as the Democrats’ disastrous destruction. Those of us on the DNC know we have to rebrand ourselves and earn the people’s trust. And unfortunately Debbie’s name does not scream trust. It screams power. It screams limited access. It screams WikiLeaks now. DNC lawsuit. It screams a lot of negative things to the public. That’s not how we want to rebrand ourselves.”
Barnes said she couldn’t understand why Wasserman Schultz made herself a target of attention by becoming the lone Democrat to employ Awan and then publicly threatening the US Capitol Police chief with “consequences” in a dispute over a secreted office laptop under investigation.
“Debbie Wasserman Schultz is still a national figure, but unfortunately for her it’s because so many people around the country see her as playing a devastatingly bad role in the last election,” said R.T. Rybak, the former mayor of Minneapolis and former DNC vice -chair who clashed with her. “I mention her name and it gets a viscerally negative reaction In Minneapolis and in other parts of the country. Sadly, I think she deserves the negative reputation.”
“In politics, you’re as strong as your friends. And she doesn’t have as many as she used to. And that’s her fault,” Morgan said. Who added that the power went to her head and the more she was criticized, the more paranoid she became.
To Democrats like the DNC’s Barnes, she’s a distraction the party can ill afford. “Everything that’s going on right now is taking away from what success we’re seeing in the grass-roots movement. No one’s hearing our good news because the headlines are focused on D/W/S, her misplaced laptop and consequences,” Barnes said, referring to her threats to the Capitol Hill police chief.

Donald Trump: Mitch McConnell Should Have Threatened McCain, Murkowski, Collins Chair Positions!

breitbart ^ | CHARLIE SPIERING 

President Donald Trump believes that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did not do everything possible to pass an Obamacare replacement bill. When reporters asked Trump why he continued to batter McConnell despite support for the Senate Majority Leader from his Republican colleagues, he replied shortly, “Don’t make anything of it, we should have health care approved.”
He hinted that McConnell should have threatened to remove Sen. John McCain, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, or Sen. Susan Collins from their chair positions in the Senate to force them to vote for the health care bill.
“He should have known that he had a couple of votes that turned on him and that should have been very easy to handle, whether it’s through the fact that you take away a committee chairmanship or do whatever you have to do,” Trump said, offering advice for McConnell.

Trump's "Excessive Expectations" Rile Senator McConnell

Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 13 August 2017 | John Semmens 

Chafing at President Trump's very public display of frustration with the failure of the Senate to pass health insurance reform, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ken) blamed "excessive expectations."
"Frankly, the President is out of his depth on this," McConnell maintained. "He comes from a business milieu where the emphasis is on action and results. In government the emphasis is on process."
The Majority Leader offered to "explain the process in terms that even Mr. Trump can understand. In the Senate we have agreements that both Parties abide by. All the repeals of Obamacare that we passed were guaranteed to be vetoed by President Obama. That's the only reason the Democrats let us pass these repeals. They could have easily filibustered and kept us from getting the 60 votes needed to stop debate. By promising to sign a repeal bill President Trump forced us to come up with another path that would be acceptable to the Democrats. That path required that several Republicans switch their previous votes for repeal to against repeal."
McConnell expressed his disappointment that "Sen. McCain rising from his virtual deathbed to cast the deciding vote didn't provide a greater respite from the unreasonable demands of an inexperienced and ill-informed outsider. I would think that the drama of a mortally-wounded hero making a last stand would've bought us some time to relax from the onerous burdens of lawmaking for a while."
The Senator also dismissed the President's pleas that he get back to work. "What he needs to understand is that he can't make us do anything we don't want to do," McConnell asserted. "And if he keeps insulting and bullying us like he has been to Sen. Blumenthal, well we might find that to be the sort of high crime or misdemeanor requiring his removal from office."
In contrast to the lack of legislative results in Congress, it was announced that the executive branch under Trump has reduced business regulatory costs by 90% compared to rules issued by the Obama Administration. McConnell warned that "the untimely release of this information will only further aggravate the already antagonistic relationship between the President and the Senate. This does not help his case for remaining in office."
In related news, the prospect of being impeached is mild compared to the prediction by ex-FBI and CIA operative Phil Mudd that "they are going to kill this guy because he doesn't support them. His joke about Russia saving us money by sending our spies home is likely the last straw. Remember what happened to Kennedy after he threatened to tear the CIA apart? Well, I think Trump has signed his own death warrant as far as these expert assassins in our government are concerned."

This Mammoth Burger Challenge Gets Bigger Every Time Someone Completes It

Wales Online ^ | 11 AUG 2017 | JOSHUA KNAPMAN

It nows weighs in at 108oz after the last challenger defeated the 102oz version
It started life as a hefty 42oz burger on the menu of a steakhouse but has grown into a challenge that has taken two years to defeat.
Grills Steakhouse, in Pontypridd , launched its burger challenge after the 42oz 'Godziila' wasn't enough for the people taking on food challenges .
The team behind the restaurant decided that if you could complete the challenge, which is worthy of an episode of Man V Food, not only would you get to name the burger, but they'll add an extra 6oz to the next challenge.
And it now stands at 108oz after one diner smashed off the 102oz challenge, which has stood for around two years.
"We started doing a 60oz mixed grill and 60oz steak, they were both challenges based on Man V Food," said Kevin Gutteridge, who founded Grills Steakhouse in 2010.
"We realised something was missing and we brought on burgers.
"So we came up with a burger menu that went from a normal 6oz burger -they're all home made, good quality mince, not overly fatty - we went all the way up to a 42oz 'Godzilla'.
"We thought that'd be enough for people," Kevin added with a laugh.
"So what we said was 'if you eat the Godzilla, we'll name the next burger after you and it will grow'."
And Kevin is keen to stress that just because these burgers feature in a challenge, there's no quality lost - all the patties are homemade with good quality ingredients.
But keeping it together is getting harder.
"They are individual burgers, stacked up, each burger has got cheese and relish on it," he adds.
"They were all 6oz burgers back then, but the burger got so big that we had to make a burger so we didn't have to stack it so high.
"It's quite a feat to have eight 12oz burgers - now nine. It's a bit of a work of art, we have to put three really long skewers in to hold it in place."
Over the last two years the challenge has defeated plenty of challengers, but Grills Steakhouse welcomes people to take on the The Little Binny Mac - as it's now known, thanks to Martin Jones' impressive achievement.
"It's been two years on the Holly's Holy Grill -it's been tried a couple of times a month at least," said Kevin.
"I would probably say easily over 100 people have attempted it since it's been the 102oz burger.
If you want to take on the challenge, the restaurant will need notice - usually 24 hours before - so they can prepare the mega meaty dish.

Stanford University Introduces Course on ‘Abolishing Whiteness’!

Breitbart ^ | 8/11/2017 

Stanford University will introduce a course this fall which will task students with considering “abolishing whiteness” and the ultimate goal of understanding “what is the future of whiteness,” according to the institution’s course catalog.

The course, which is entitled “White Identity Politics,” will be taught by instructor John Patrick Moran, and analyze the “future of whiteness.” For the uninitiated, the concept of “whiteness” refers to the social aspect of race. According to the University of Calgary, “whiteness” is a socially and politically constructed learned behavior built upon the systematic privileges afforded to whites in Western society.
The Stanford course looks to abolish this social concept of “whiteness” through an analysis of what the course description alleges is “the rise of white identity politics in the United States” as a result of the 2016 Presidential election. Stanford Professor Tomás Jiménez explained that “whiteness” refers to “the set of behaviors and outlooks associated with the racial category, white.”
Pundits proclaim that the 2016 Presidential election marks the rise of white identity politics in the United States. Drawing from the field of whiteness studies and from contemporary writings that push whiteness studies in new directions, this upper-level seminar asks, does white identity politics exist? How is a concept like white identity to be understood in relation to white nationalism, white supremacy, white privilege, and whiteness? We will survey the field of whiteness studies, scholarship on the intersection of race, class, and geography, and writings on whiteness in the United States by contemporary public thinkers, to critically interrogate the terms used to describe whiteness and white identities. Students will consider the perils and possibilities of different political practices, including abolishing whiteness or coming to terms with white identity. What is the future of whiteness?
