Protesters Block Ambulance In Emergency, Pissed Off EMTs Take Matters Into Their Own Hands

Thank God they were able to perform – but how long will it be before these protestors kill someone?

Published

on

Everyone has a right to peacefully assemble and protest – but the anti-Trump lunatics who are still making noise can’t seem to grasp the “peacefully assemble part,” and don’t care who they put out. These rabid idiots cared more about getting their misguided message out than about someone’s life that was in peril during an emergency situation and stood in the way of getting to the hospital until the EMTs taking the individual there took matters into their own hands.

Be near an “anti-fascist” rally even remotely identifiable as a Republican, and you can expect to have your head kicked to the curb rather quickly. No one expected love trumping hate to hurt so much.

Even when their protests don’t include fists flying, they’re still putting people at risk. Perhaps their most mind-numbingly pointless tactic is one that was pioneered first by the Black Lives Matter movement, and then by the anti-Trump kooks. It’s unclear how they think they’re going to be bringing anyone over their side. Do they think that someone stuck in traffic for four hours is going to leave that situation making special note to vote against Trump next election? Of course not.

At the very best, they’re wasting people’s time, and at the very worst, they’re putting lives at risk. As was reported back in July, the Memphis Black Lives Matter rally shut down the I-40 bridge Sunday night with hundreds of protesters refusing to leave. Traffic could not go across, but paramedic Bobby Harrell with Crittenden EMS was determined to get to a child who was stuck on the bridge with his family. The paramedic who managed to get the child the care they needed, after nearly 30 minutes of delay.

And now, they’re at it again. As the Gateway Pundit reported:

State Police and media reports say about 100 to 200 people, who were protesting President Trump’s immigration policies, ended up blocking an ambulance from getting to a local hospital, which forced paramedics to perform an emergency medical procedure themselves on a “critically ill patient.”

State Police say they did arrest the leader of the protest but not before he tried to flee on foot including knocking into some of the protestors he helped organize. Law enforcement officials issued a sternly worded statement about the incident.

“The Connecticut State Police would like to remind the public that protests blocking any highway or roadway is not only a crime, but dangerous and will NOT be tolerated. All laws will be strictly enforced,” State Police said in a news release.

Paramedics were forced to take matters in their own hands and perform an emergency procedure on the patient.

Thank God they were able to perform – but how long will it be before these protestors kill someone?

BREAKING: Trump Just Called McCain’s Wife – IT’S BAD!

Published

on

In an official White House statement we now know President Donald Trump on Friday made a call the wife of Republican Arizona Senator John McCain, Cindy McCain, after getting news that he had been hospitalized this week as he battles one of the deadliest forms of cancers known to man.

McCain who is 81 years old was diagnosed with a highly lethal form of brain cancer in July and on Wednesday his office said he had been admitted to the hospital with complications.

The statement read that Senator McCain was currently receiving treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center for what is considered normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy. But that he remains in high spirits and eternally grateful to his physicians for their excellent care they have provided for him since his treatment has begun. In the statement, he also thanked his friends and supporters for their encouragement and good wishes and states that the senator looks forward to returning to work as soon as possible.

McCain’s Republican colleagues expressed high optimism that he will be able to make the vote on the tax overhaul next week since senators must be physically present on the Senate floor to cast votes. Considering this time he will vote with the GOP lets all hope and pray this is true.

MSN Reports:

President Trump: U.S. Economy to ‘Rock’ as GOP Races to Tax Vote

GOP lawmakers posted their sweeping, 503-page bill — with permanent tax cut for U.S. corporations and temporary benefits for individuals — on Friday evening after gaining key votes from two Republican senators who’d threatened to oppose it. Now, with votes planned in the House and Senate by the middle of next week, Trump is closing in on his first major legislative victory.

The bill — hammered out behind closed doors by Republican leaders — would slash the corporate tax rate to 21 percent, the lowest that rate has been since 1939. It would provide across-the-board tax cuts for most individuals, but then wipe them off the books by 2026. Whether to extend them would be up to a future Congress.

Trump’s White House applauded Friday’s developments, which Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called a major step toward achieving the president’s promises of faster economic growth and “much needed financial relief to all Americans.”

“It’ll be fantastic for the middle-income people and for jobs, most of all,” Trump said on Saturday at the White House before boarding Marine One for Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland. He predicted U.S. economic growth “could go to 4, 5 or even 6 percent, ultimately.”

“We are really going to start to rock,” Trump told reporters.

House leaders plan to hold their vote Tuesday. Timing for the Senate vote was less clear, though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the chamber would “get this bill done” next week.

Everything You Need to Know About the GOP Tax-Overhaul Plan

Trump and congressional Republicans have repeatedly pitched the tax measure as a boon for the middle class, despite independent analyses of earlier versions that said most of the benefit would go to higher earners. The final bill would provide a larger tax cut for the highest earners by shaving the top individual tax rate to 37 percent from 39.6 percent, a lower level than was proposed in either the House or Senate versions.

“This April 15 filing season — that is the last time you will file under this monstrous, broken tax code,” House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady said Friday evening. Brady kicked off a remarkably rapid law-making effort on Nov. 2, when he released an initial bill. The final version reflects significant changes — many of them aimed at shoring up GOP votes.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who had announced his opposition to an earlier version of the legislation, switched to “yes” after tax writers changed the bill to broaden the child tax credit’s benefits for working families. Rubio said in a Twitter message that the change “is a solid step toward broader reforms which are both pro-growth and pro-worker.”

‘Major Wins’
Senator Susan Collins, a Maine Republican who hasn’t committed to supporting the final legislation, issued a news release saying she’d secured “major wins” in it, including provisions that would temporarily broaden an individual deduction for medical expenses and broaden the types of state and local taxes that can be deducted below a $10,000 cap.

Collins also seeks approval of separate legislation that would shore up individual health insurance markets — where experts say premiums could rise because the tax bill would repeal the Obamacare individual mandate. The Congressional Budget Office has previously estimated that the change would lead to as many as 13 million fewer Americans having health coverage over a decade.

But the most surprising announcement came from Bob Corker of Tennessee — the only Republican senator who voted against an earlier Senate version of the legislation — when he said that he’d reversed course and would vote “yes.”

Corker’s concern — that the legislation would increase federal deficits — was not addressed in the GOP’s final product. In fact, the Congressional Budget Office estimated on Friday that the legislation would increase deficits by $1.455 trillion over 10 years, an amount that’s slightly higher than the projection for the version Corker opposed earlier this month.

‘Disappointing’ on Deficit
“This is a bad day to be a deficit hawk,” said Steve Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense. “While Senator Corker’s decision is disappointing, the entire Republican conference should be against this deficit-financed tax cut,” Ellis said.

McConnell himself had cited deficit concerns earlier this year in discussing tax legislation. “It will have to be revenue-neutral,” he said in an interview with Bloomberg News. “We have a $21 trillion debt.”

By changing his position, Corker, who’s exchanged bitter remarks with Trump over the president’s personal style, cleared the way for the president’s first real policy victory on Capitol Hill.

Whether it will constitute a political victory remains to be seen. Public opinion polls have shown that earlier versions of the bill were unpopular, but Trump administration officials and GOP leaders predict the tax cuts, once finalized, will gain favor in 2018, ahead of congressional elections.

Democrats — all of whom voted against earlier versions of the legislation in both chambers — have decried the rapid, largely secretive process that produced the bill.

“This monstrosity is a bill that only Donald Trump and Republicans, who have accomplished next to nothing in this Congress, could love,” said Representative Lloyd Doggett, a Texas Democrat who serves on the tax-writing Ways and Means panel. “It will not grow our economy, it only burdens us with an immense amount of debt.”

On Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen offered only a lukewarm endorsement of the legislation’s effect on the national economy. “It’s not a gigantic increase in growth,” Yellen said during a news conference.

I am very aware most people on the right don’t agree nor hold Senator McCain in very high regards, in fact, neither do I. But he is still a human being that’s suffering and he deserves our prayers and well wishes at a time that’s so tragic for him and his family. Let’s also hope and pray there comes a day we will never have to see another soul lost to Cancer and its ravishing treatment.

Please share in support of Senator John McCain….

BOMBSHELL Out Of San Francisco… Anti-Trump Judge Going To PRISON!!!

He Thought He Could Get Away With It!

Published

on

Another one bites the dust… this time in the 9th circus….err I mean 9th circuit.  A prominent judge in the US appeals court has now been accused inappropriate sexual conduct or comments by a total of nine women.

The latest allegations against Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals go back decades and include women who met him at events, according to the Washington Post. The 67-year-old judge based out of Pasadena, California was appointed to the bench by former President Ronald Reagan in 1985 serving the 9th Circuit for 32 years. Seven of those years were served as chief judge from 2007-2014. A child of Romania immigrants that survived the Holocaust fleeing to America, Kozinski is an essayist and judicial commentator in addition to sitting the bench on the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals with essays in publications such as Slate, The New Yorker, The New Republic, and National Review. He is known for his irreverent opinions and his clerks often win prestigious clerkships at the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Post reported that six former clerks and externs on the appeals court had accused Kozinski of subjecting them to inappropriate comments or exposing them to pornography,  as well as four women who say he touched or kissed them against their will.

Retired US Court of Federal Claims judge, Christine Miller has accused Kozinski of grabbing her breasts during a car ride in 1986 after a legal community function in the Baltimore area.  According to Miller, Kozinski got grabby hands after she refused to go to a motel with him and have sex.

Miller states –

“‘He said if you won’t sleep with me, I want to touch you, and then he reached over, and — this was the most antiseptic — he grabbed each of my breasts and squeezed them.”

Emily Murphy states Kozinski once tried to convince her and other clerks to work out while naked after she mentioned that the court’s gym appeared to regularly be used by employees.

Another accuser is Leah Litman, a law professor at Univerity of California, Irvine. Litman claims the judge spoke of just having had sex, then pinching her side as well as her leg while they were in a restaurant together the evening before they were to appear together on a judicial panel at her school in July.

Yet a third lawyer not identified by name claims Kozinski approached her at a 2008 legal event held in Los Angeles while she stood alone.  He then proceeded to kiss her on the mouth and give her a tight bear hug with no warning or invitation. According to the Post, the woman’s husband did confirm the incident in question, however, they said nothing due to Kozinski’s powerful position and a belief that nothing would be done because of it.

Another accuser by the name of Heidi Bond a former law clerk from 2006-2007, said the judge showed her porn on multiple occasions, including pictures of naked college-aged students at a party and a flipbook which a woman’s naked body parts had to be matched up to the corresponding bodies. When asked why nothing was said at the time, she responded with “I mean, who would I tell? Who do you even tell? Who do you go to?”

Kosinski vehemently denies the allegations, issuing a statement through his attorney indicating he believed all of this was a misunderstanding based on his “unusual sense of humor” and he deeply regretted that his ‘unusual sense of humor caused offense or made anyone uncomfortable.’

“I have been a judge for 35 years and during that time have had over 500 employees in my chambers. I treat all of my employees as family and work very closely with most of them. I would never intentionally do anything to offend anyone and it is regrettable that a handful have been offended by something I may have said or done.”

Now as a result of these allegations the 9th Circuit has opened a misconduct inquiry. In a letter to Chief Justice Roberts, 9th Circuit Chief Judge Sidney Thomas said it is the practice of the appeals court to investigate published allegations of misconduct.  As a result, the circuit initiated a formal inquiry. In an effort to ensure impartiality inasmuch as it can do so, Thomas asked the chief justice to transfer the complaint to another circuit so judges that do not sit with Kozinski would conduct the inquiry. On Friday, Roberts did just that by letter routing the misconduct inquiring to the Judicial Council of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York.

According to NPR

Since the Post’s report last week, two other former clerks on the 9th Circuit who did not work for Kozinski, including Slate columnist Dahlia Lithwick, have published accounts of their own encounters with the judge. The Washington Post reported Friday night that nine more women say he “subjected them to sexual comments or other conduct, including four who say he touched them inappropriately.”

One of Kozinski’s current clerks has resigned, a spokesman for the court told The Associated Press.

This is not Kozinski’s first time facing misconduct charges either. In 2008, the Los Angeles Times reported on a publicly accessible website the judge maintained full of sexually explicit photos and videos. Like this current misconduct inquiry, this one was also transferred to another court where Kozinski was subsequently admonished for exhibiting poor judgment in maintaining material that could prove “an embarrassment to the federal judiciary.”

This existence of this inquiry tends to lend credence to the women’s claims of sexual impropriety on the part of Kozinski.

BREAKING NEWS – VONN Is OUT! Makes SHOCKING Announcement

Published

on

Someday I will understand why people who are known for their physical abilities or for pretending to be something they are not are given a platform to spew their stupidity in our society.

Lyndsy Vonn who no one knew by name just a month ago, other than for being Tiger Wood’s woman a couple of years ago, is now known as the infamous Olympic Skier who recently suffered a minor back injury in Switzerland while preparing for the upcoming Winter Olympics in South Korea after she told Fake News CNN that she would not visit Trump’s White House upon being invited as a member of the U.S. Olympic team.

Now she is trying to backtrack after the huge backlash she got from all us Freedom Loving Patriots.

As I head to France for the next races, I would like to share with you my reflections from the past few days. I've received a tremendous amount of feedback, both positive and negative, about my recent CNN interview. The point that I was trying to articulate is that all Olympic athletes represent their nation as a whole, and are not representatives of their government or any specific political figure or party. None of us work tirelessly for years on end to compete in the Olympics on behalf of Democrats or Republicans. The Olympics are a non-political event, a chance for everyone to put aside their differences and be on the same "team.". That does not mean that Olympic athletes don't have political opinions. As an American, I am extremely proud that our great nation was founded on principals and ideals where citizens can express our opinions openly. It is a privilege that some others around the world don't have. I am proud to be an American, and I want our country to continue to be a symbol of hope, compassion, inclusion and world unity. My travels around the world have recently made clear that this is no longer how people view the United States. You cannot pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV in Europe without noticing how people are questioning our direction. It seems to me that we must lead with understanding and strive for unity in our relationships throughout the world. As for myself, my recent comments opened up my eyes as to how divided we are right now. It is hurtful to read comments where people are hoping I break my neck or that God is punishing me for being "anti-Trump." We need to find a way to put aside our differences and find common ground in communicating. Is it wrong to hope for a better world? All of this is much bigger than skiing and the Olympics. I am going to take the next two months to focus on what I can do and right now that is competing for my country. In doing that, I will be hoping that we Americans can still be that "shining city on a hill."

A post shared by L I N D S E Y • V O N N (@lindseyvonn) on

Don’t you just love it when a moron who knows how to ski well pretends they are a political guru? This woman is very good at what she does, why does she insist on sticking her foot in her mouth is beyond me. And why is the Fake News Network, CNN, asking these idiots if they will visit the White House or not? The White House is a place of business. Not a place to make these athletes with overblown egos feel good. Normal, everyday taxpayers like us don’t get invited to the White House, why should they? Because they know how to throw a damn ball around or go fast? Doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.

The Guardian Reports:

Lindsey Vonn: ‘I want to represent the US, not Trump’ at Winter Olympics
Olympic champion becomes latest athlete to speak out against Trump
Vonn, 33, says she would turn down traditional invite to White House
American skier Lindsey Vonn has become the latest athlete to speak out against Donald Trump.

The most decorated female skier of all time told CNN in an interview that aired Thursday that she wants to “represent the people of the United States, not the president” and would turn down the invitation to the White House traditionally put forth to the entire US Olympic team.

“I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony,” Vonn said. “I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”

When asked if she would accept an invitation to the White House, Vonn was to the point: “Absolutely not. Nope. I have to win to be invited so – no, actually I think every US team member is invited. So, no, I won’t go.”

Vonn, who turned 33 in October, is preparing for her first Winter Olympics since 2010, when she vaulted to global stardom after capturing gold in the women’s downhill and bronze in the super-G. She missed the Sochi Games four years later while rehabilitating from knee surgery.

The Minnesota native has logged a record 77 career World Cup victories, more than any other woman and second overall to Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark. She is a four-time overall World Cup champion and one of six women to have won World Cup races in all five disciplines of alpine skiing: downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom, and super combined.

Vonn is not the first high-profile athlete to speak out against the Trump administration.

Trump launched a sensational attack on NFL players who have kneeled in protest of the national anthem during a speech in Alabama in September, challenging the league’s owners to release anyone who engages in the movement started last year by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The fiery rhetoric prompted criticism from dozens of NFL players and even league commissioner Roger Goodell, who said “divisive comments like [Trump’s] demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.”

That same week Stephen Curry, the two-time NBA Most Valuable Player who in June led the Golden State Warriors to second league title in three seasons, told reporters he supported a snub of the team’s traditional White House visit, earning a stern rebuke from Trump, who withdrew the invitation.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star forward LeBron James called the president a “bum” while the Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy went further, calling Trump an “asshole”.

In the CNN interview, Vonn also responded to the IOC’s unprecedented decision to ban Russia’s Olympic Committee from the Winter Olympics, which kick off in Feburary.

“If even a small percentage of that is true I would think the IOC did the right thing,” she said. “Obviously, there are potential athletes that are clean but they have the option now to compete under a neutral flag, which I think is a good solution.

“But doping and what the Russians did is just not acceptable and we have to make that clear. And make sure that it doesn’t happen again.”

Vonn’s final preparations for Pyeongchang hit a minor snag when she crashed out of last week’s season-opening downhill event in Lake Louise, Austria.

So this genius states that she is there to represent Americans, not President Trump. But she forgot President Trump is also an American and he is our president, so her argument is about as stupid as she looks. This is what happens when we as a society engage in hero worship. I hope that for her sake this skiing thing pans out because I’m pretty sure she’s not qualified to do much else.

Please share if you are sick and tired of athletes and actors pretending to be political gurus….
