After ‘Anti-War’ NBA Star Uses West Point to Train But Skips Team Dinner With Cadets, Army Captain Puts Him in His Place

No holding back…

Published

on

Last week, Joakim Noah of the New York Knicks, stated he would not dine with West Point cadets even though the team trains there. He cites being anti-war as his reason. Very lame and very, very disrespectful.

Well, the cadets have their own opinions about all of this. Nick Palmisciano, a West Point grad, Army veteran and captain, nailed it when he said it just makes his eyes role. It is a self-serving opportunity for someone to grand stand and call attention to themselves and that is exactly what Noah did. He wanted attention just as Colin Kaepernick did. Noah knows nothing about the military and has no idea how they stand between his sorry hide and the bad guys continuously.

From the Independent Review Journal:

While some NFL players are still protesting during the national anthem, in the NBA — New York Knick Joakim Noah has sparked controversy for a whole different reason.

On Thursday, Noah chose to skip a dinner at West Point with military cadets, the same venue where the Knicks have held their training camp for a number of years. However, like Kaepernick, he decided to use the headline-grabbing decision to make a political point.

Noah said:

“It’s hard for me a little bit. I have a lot of respect for the kids who are out here fighting. But it’s hard for me to understand why we have to go to war, why kids have to kill kids around the world.

So I have mixed feelings about being here. I’m very proud of this country. I love America but I just don’t understand kids killing kids around the world.”

Noah judged the whole military on a preconceived, spoon-fed version of what it is. It’s the very same thing as passing judgement on all police officers because of one bad call, or calling all black people criminals because of a statistic. Palmisciano is also right when he says, “As soon as you start generalizing people, their motives, their beliefs, you are part of the problem.”

Noah has a right to do as he sees fit and so does his coach. Most of America supports the military and the police and none of this will affect what they do at all. It’s just a shame that a famous athlete takes center stage to speak against American heroes and a country that made him wealthy in the first place. They don’t live in reality and they just don’t get what it means to be an American.

VIDEO: Chinese Daredevil Does Pull-Ups From 62-Story Skyscraper For $15,000 – Doesn’t End Well

Horrifying!

Published

on

A Chinese daredevil who became famous for taking videos of himself scaling high-rise building without safety gear died when he lost his grip during his latest stunt.

Wu Yongning, 26, was popular on Weibo, a Chinese social media site like Facebook. Sponsors would pay Wu for performing death-defying acts. In his final stunt, he was doing pull-ups from a 62-story skyscraper. Wu’s girlfriend (who he was planning on marrying) said that he most likely took an elevator up 40 floors, then climbed the other 22 in order to avoid security. The long version of the video shows him climbing over the roof, though.

Wu, who relied on his martial arts training to perform his stunts, was set to win $15,000 for the challenge, but things took a tragic turn for the worse.

In the video you can see Wu struggling to climb over the edge of the building to get on the roof. He tries to use his legs to gain traction, but to no avail. He falls shortly after.

Watch. (Warning: Some may find this disturbing).

Another view.

A compilation of Wu’s videos. At the end, you can see him preparing for his final stunt on top of the 62-story skyscraper.

Wu was set to ask his girlfriend’s parents if he could marry her two days after the stunt. His girlfriend said he needed the money from the challenge for the wedding, and to help his ailing mother.

More via Newsweek on Yahoo:

A famous Chinese “rooftopping” enthusiast has unwittingly filmed his own death as he fell from a 62-story skyscraper during one of his trademark daredevil stunts.

Wu Yongning, 26, was performing pull-ups at the summit of the Huayuan Hua Center, one of the tallest buildings in Changsha, in central China, when he lost his grip and fell.

The incident was captured on a camera that Wu had carefully placed on another part of the building to record himself.

Wu had amassed thousands of followers on Weibo, a popular Chinese social media site, after posting dramatic short videos showing himself perched atop tall buildings without the use of safety equipment. The challenge he was participating in at the time of his death came with U.S. $15,000 in prize money, according to the Xiaoxiang Morning Herald, although the paper did not provide further details on the identity of the sponsor and the nature of the competition.

Wu died on 8 November, but his death was only confirmed in a social media post by his girlfriend Jin Jin a month later, after fans became concerned that no videos had been posted to his channel for a month.

Local police investigating the case described it as an accident and have ruled out foul play.

Last Friday, Jin Jin wrote online: “Today is December 8th. It makes me think of November 8th, the day you left us and left this world.”

Jin Jin told The Beijing News that Wu was due to ask her parents’ permission to marry her two days after the stunt. “He planned to propose to his girlfriend [the day after the challenge],” the South China Morning Post quoted his step-uncle as saying. “He needed the money for the wedding, and for medical treatment for his ailing mother.”

Wu was famous for fearlessly scaling high-rise buildings without any safety equipment, relying only on his “martial arts training and careful planning,” according to one of his Weibo posts. More than 300 videos of him tip-toeing around skyscraper ledges or doing pull-ups as he hung from the side of tall buildings have been widely shared by his fans.

Rooftopping, or “buildering,” is the practice of accessing rooftops to take skyline photography or to perform stunts. The performer often live-streams the footage or posts it to social media. In recent years, the trend has spiked in popularity all across the world. Despite safety concerns, many climbers insist that the use of safety equipment detracts from the experience.

While tragic, you can’t expect a good ending when taking risks with your life like this. As one commenter noted, Wu was literally a “falling star.”

Hopefully most of you have normal day jobs and aren’t hanging off skyscrapers for a living, unless you’re building them of course!

BREAKING NEWS About Melania…Nobody Saw It Coming, This Is MASSIVE!

Published

on

Melania Trump is arguably one of the most criticized and targeted first ladies of all time and not for anything she’s done to make her deserve such attacks. She’s weathered that storm with unmatched elegance and class that never seems to cease. As she continues to be true to herself, her family, and her important role in the White House, news is breaking today that cannot be ignored – especially by the incessantly hateful left who didn’t see it coming.

While liberals are trashing our incredible first lady out of jealousy and disappointment that she’s superseded their expectations tenfold, Melania continues to do what’s right in her heart. For that, she’s received a massive honor that her droves of hateful detractors will try to bury or discredit her for. However, the truth is not only in the numbers, but in her actions that earned them. This is a far contrast from her predecessor and we couldn’t be more proud.

There’s no hiding the truth no matter how hard Democrats try to deny it or change the facts. Conservative Fighters reports:

Poll released earlier this week, Melania Trump’s approval rating is climbing: 53 percent of likely voters have a favorable opinion of the first lady.

The rating is an eight-point increase from her approval rating among the same demographic one year ago, when her husband assumed the presidency.

For a first lady who’s been on the receiving end of vicious and petty media attacks all year, and was just recently the unwilling subject of a Vanity Fair piece that alleged she didn’t want the position, it’s an impressive feat.

The breakdown of likely voters shed some light on which Americans, exactly, are so enthusiastic about the first lady. Among Republicans, as many as 81 percent of voters support the first lady.

Proving that “no good deed goes unpunished” is the left’s reaction to this verifiable news they’d rather ignore. Melanbis didn’t get this overwhelming approval rating because of his good looks, she earned it by being a good person who is more concerned with other people than she is a divisive agenda, like her predecessor, Michelle Obama, was.  While Michelle spent her time perpetuating racism by praising only the works of black girls and women, by emceeing such events as “Black Girls Rock,” Melania is offering much-deserved attention to the sick and suffering, regardless of gender, race, religion, or any other factor her predecessor gave favor to.

Conservative Fighters continued:

Voters were also asked what they thought about Melania Trump as a role model for American children. Roughly 40 percent of respondents claimed that the first lady was a good role model, with another 40 percent of voters opposing that viewpoint. The remaining 20 percent of likely voters were unsure or undecided.

Men hold a slightly more favorable opinion of the first lady than do women. The poll also revealed that 36 percent of likely voters had an unfavorable opinion of Melania Trump, with another 11 percent of voters remaining undecided.

The poll also indicated that only 20% of polled voters thought Melania Trump was involved in making political decisions. It’s her penchant for avoiding conflict and knowing the role of the first lady, perhaps, that makes her so popular among American voters.

The results of the poll are widely considered by many to be a good indicator of the first lady’s true approval rating. The poll was conducted using a sample of likely U.S. voters on November 28th-29th. The margin of error for the poll was plus or minus 3 percent, and the poll has a confidence level of 95%.

The report also notes that among recent first ladies in modern history, the top two in approval have been conservative women. By the numbers, Melania is a close second to Laura Bush who had a whopping 75 percent approval rating. Michelle didn’t come close to that for a number of reasons, most of which probably involved her rubbing people the wrong way who didn’t “appreciate” her brashness. However, Melania has not even completed her first year in this honorable position and to score so highly already, when the pressure and judgment are on more than it ever will be, speaks volumes for how people truly feel about her, regardless of what the mainstream media says.

“Melania Trump is just getting started though — and the increase in her approval ratings, even in the face of fierce media negativity, bodes well for the future,” Conservative Fighters added.

While we point the approval numbers out, it’s clear that’s not what’s important to Melania – a genuine desire to make a difference in this country and help the hurting is. Her actions have proved that and her demure approach proves she’s not about the attention, as Michelle often seemed to be. This is very refreshing.

BREAKING NEWS Trumps Ex-Girlfriend Just ATTACKED Melania In Public – She Needs Support Now!!!

Published

on

The liberal mainstream media has been relentless with their attacks on President Trump, Melania, and even their son Barron. Instead of these people behaving like adults, they have resorted to childish antics that could be best described as bullying. For months we have heard these rabid liberals screeching and calling Trump a racist and a bigot, but now they are focusing their attention on Melania. Just a few weeks ago, when President Trump and Melania visited the victims of Hurricane Harvey a liberal fashion critic berated Melania for her choice of footwear. Then, Joy Behar of “The View” mocked Melania last week on the air after DACA was reversed saying that Trump only liked immigrants that he could marry.

Now, if that was not bad enough, Trump’s jealous ex-girlfriend has decided to join in on the Melania-bashing with this shirt she wore on the red carpet.

It is no secret that President Trump has been married before and has had several ex-girlfriends. Let’s be honest here..before Trump was president he was quite the successful businessman and reality television star that surrounded himself with beautiful women and celebrities. However, once he decided to run for president against Hillary Clinton, the claws came out, and the left began to attack Trump every which way they could and his wife Melania. These hateful liberals have mocked Melania for her accent, her clothing choices, her modeling career, and now they are insinuating that she is also being held captive by President Trump. Since last year, social justice warriors have been using the insulting hashtag FreeMelania to convey this message, and now Trump’s ex-girlfriend took it one step further.

Candice Bergen has been busy promoting her new movie “Home Again” that was released last weekend and was recently interviewed on Bravo’s, Watch What Happens Live. The host of the show Seth Cohen, of course, asked questions about the movie and her brief dating history with Trump. Instead of Bergen showing any class by just side stepping the entire question she took the opportunity to bash Trump and Melania. 

Here is more from Daily Mail:

Candice Bergen went on Bravo’s, Watch What Happens Live, wearing a ‘Free Melania’ sweat-shirt and dished on her date in the 1960’s with Donald Trump, calling him a “douche.”

Bergen, who played a witty, hard-nosed television journalist during the decade-long hit series ‘Murphy Brown,’ went on Andy Cohen’s late night talk show Wednesday and dished on her big night with President Trump back when the two were students at the University of Pennsylvania.

The Emmy-winning actress was 18 at the time and said President Trump had called her dorm to ask her if he could take her out for dinner. 

Even before she continued her choice of top and the fact that she has campaigned for Hillary Clinton ever since she ran for the US Senate back in 1999 suggested that this was not a magical night for the young college co-ed.

As for the ‘Free Melania’ sweatshirt, Bergen had been wearing it all day as she promoted her new film ‘Home Again;’ with Witherspoon, and it retails for just $33.99, with a hoodie and t-shirt version available as well online.

‘He was wearing a burgundy three-piece suit, with burgundy patent leather boots, and he was in a burgundy limousine,’ she explained of his monotone look of the night, which was evidently the most memorable part of the evening.

When Cohen then asked if there was any chemistry or a kiss on the date, Bergen deadpanned: ‘No, I was home very early’ and ‘There was no physical contact, whatsoever.’

He followed that up by inquiring if Bergen found the future commander-in-chief alluring or a douche, to which she responded: ‘He was a good-looking guy and a douche.’

After Bergen was done with her brief recap of the one date she shared with the real estate scion, Cohen quipped: ‘She wears this ‘Free Melania’ shirt with some authority here.’ 

President Trump was the first to reveal that he had once dated Bergen, sharing the story back in 2015 and making it seem as though the two shared more than one single evening together 50 years ago.

It really goes without saying that what Bergen wore on the show and said is absolutely insulting. The insinuation here is that Melania is being held captive by Trump instead of this being a loving marriage. Also, there is an underlying message that Melania is inept and is somehow not smart enough to leave the marriage if she wanted to.

The left’s hate for Trump has reached an all-time high which is why they are now attacking his family. They have tried everything they can to try to destroy Trump and it hasn’t worked so now they will try to rip a part his marriage. These people have no shame whatsoever and will stop at nothing, but Trump and Melania are much stronger than these liberals and their childish attacks. 

SHARE IF YOU ARE SICK OF THE LEFT’S NASTY ATTACKS ON MELANIA!
