Ivanka and the JetBlues

Originally posted at American Thinker

For Christmas, soon-to-be first daughter Ivanka Trump, her cousins, husband Jared, and the couple’s three small children, Arabella, Joseph, and Theodore, booked a low-key commercial JetBlue flight to Palm Beach, Florida.

Brooklyn Labor Relations and Employment lawyer Daniel Jennings Goldstein was also along for the ride. The problem is that Goldstein took umbrage at having to share in-flight cabin air with the Trump-Kushner entourage.

Legendary in his own right, Mr. Goldstein is a fascinating guy. When not litigating sexual harassment lawsuits, and marching against Donald Trump with his Hunter College professor husband, Matthew Lasner, Goldstein enjoys staying active in liberal causes and taking family vacations with son Amos.

Goldstein’s most recent attention-getting episode unfolded when Harvard Ph.D. husband Matt spotted Ivanka and Co. in an airport terminal and responded by burning up his Twitter feed alerting Trump-haters and ISIS terrorists that:

“Ivanka and Jared [were] at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them.” Hashtag: “#banalityofevil’.”

A short time later, while the aircraft was in the process of boarding, Dan ruined everybody’s day when he couldn’t control an emotional outburst that berated the #banalityofevil by telling Ivanka, “Your father is ruining the country.”

Swinging his son around in his arms, Daniel’s anger issues were further exposed when he attempted to get an answer from the entire flight crew: “Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.”

Clearly, based on their lifestyle, Matt and Dan are certainly not guilty of harassing hesitant women into having sex by crooning Christmas songs like “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” However, based on Goldstein’s erratic boarding-behavior, the dynamic duo does seem to have an inclination to harass wealthy women on airplanes.

Although Jared Kushner was standing in the aisle the entire time, Goldstein, whose legal know-how counsels him to do otherwise, directed all his vitriol towards the woman.

Class act that she is, a poised and polished Ivanka ignored the immature liberal lunatic, tried to divert her children’s attention by occupying them with a box of crayons, and attempted to play down the whole incident.

Nonetheless, as the flight crew decided that the Goldstein-Lasner family unit needed to deplane, Dan defended his First Amendment rights by screaming, “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion!”

At the ready, Matt quickly updated his Twitter feed with breakneck speed pounding out with his muscular thumbs:

“Ivanka and Jared on our flight. My husband expressed his displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off.”

In response to the controversy, Daniel and Matt have since deleted their Twitter accounts and refused to speak to reporters. Yet the truth is that the same-sex family wasn’t exactly ‘kicked off’ the plane. Instead, the parents of the well-dressed child were politely escorted off the airline and offered a seat on the next flight to Palm Beach.

As a litigator, Daniel should have recognized the glaring inconsistency of balking over being kicked off the flight for ‘expressing his opinion’ while simultaneously demanding a woman be kicked off the flight because she didn’t share his opinion.

Moreover, notwithstanding the hysterical histrionics at play and the presence of horrified children, the last person that should be telling any woman what to do with her body, let alone if she should “fly private” or not, is a gay-liberal man.

After all, if Ivanka were at an abortion clinic, and not waiting to take off in an airplane, a liberal like Daniel Goldstein would be applauding her right to choose.

Therefore, based solely a person’s political inclination, Daniel Goldstein’s bias toward Ivanka Trump proves, once again, that liberals see themselves as authorized to selectively discriminate.

OSU ‘NIGHTMARES’: First Trump’s WIN Then Terror ATTACK

Originally posted at Clash Daily 

Recently, Ohio State University students participated in a group hug by taking part in a protest to give voice to their disappointment that Donald J. Trump was elected 45th president of the United States.

Two hundred students, faculty, and community activists came together in unity on the OSU Oval at an event organized by a college group that calls itself, Reclaim OSU. “We’re not here to get violent, we’re here to organize,” said Bilal El-Yousseph, a local activist who when not stirring up trouble on campus is posting “Free Palestine” and anti-police rants on his Facebook page.

Besides “F*ck Donald Trump”, “Grab democracy, not pussy”, and “Not my president” were some of the more creative signage paraded around the Oval. Always the gentleman, before initiating a “Fu*k Trump” chant, El-Yousseph, a devout Muslim, apologized for using obscenities that would surely displease Allah.

Among other things, the Down with Trump OSU angry post-election protestors marched for Democrat Party unity, to decry Trump’s proposal to ban Muslim immigrants, to stand with excluded individuals, and to denounce the new administration’s policies, which many rally participants view as racist and xenophobic.

Anti-capitalist lesbian activist Nicolette Yohn of the Multi-Partisan Coalition was part of the event.

Nicolette is a third-year political science and women’s, gender and sexuality studies student who shared, “Personally, I’m directly affected by the decisions of a Donald Trump administration, as a gay woman.”

Nicolette, who has a way with a bullhorn, didn’t exactly elaborate on how Donald Trump would negatively affect her life as a gay woman. However, despite lamenting the danger Trump posed to lesbians, Nicolette seemed totally at ease opposing the president-elect in the company of a Palestinian sympathizer whose religious inclination describes her sexual proclivities as “deviant.”

A few months ago, Ohio State University student activists also expressed their displeasure with law enforcement. By participating in the “March against racist police murder at OSU”, the OSU Coalition for Black Liberation (OSU4BL), and the OSU student organization, brought attention to the life of 13-year-old Tyre King who, after pulling a BB gun from his waistband, was tragically gunned down by Columbus, Ohio police officer.

Maryam Abidi, also a student of women’s, gender and sexuality studies and strategic communication, helped organize the police protest. Ms. Abidi told the OSU College paper, The Lantern that “We can’t just mourn and let it go…it’s important that we hold the cops mother-f—ing accountable.”

So, in addition to dropping “F”-bombs, the anti-cop event ended with a “die-in” where students simulated Tyre King’sdeath by lying lifeless for 13 minutes on the floor of the Ohio Union.

Apparently, there are a number of students at OSU who think that radicals journeying to the US from terrorist states are more tolerable than democratically elected patriots trying desperately to protect Americans from ISIS infiltrated refugees, and law enforcement personnel whose job is to rush into gun-free zones to save the lives of people who hate them.

Nonetheless, being distracted by nonsense could be why, as OSU activists were busy seeking social justice at “die-ins”, adjusting anti-Trump safety pins, and huddling in safe zones, no one noticed that an actual “marginalized” refugee from Somalia, inspired by ISIS, was plotting to mow down and stab those fighting to uphold inclusiveness.

While Nicolette worried about the impact a Trump administration would have on her same-sex lifestyle, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who became a permanent U.S. citizen in 2014, was ranting on Facebook that he had reached a “boiling point”, referencing “lone wolf attacks”, and paying homage to radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

It’s been reported that Abdul expressed concern about praying in public, but, perhaps, after the fact, open-minded OSU activists could thwart another hostile confrontation by holding open forum on whether or not The Campus Grind food court should integrate Somalian camel jerky into the snack section at Starbucks.

Either way, for lack of camel jerky, Ali Artan, a student who Nicolette and Bilal would likely view as a victim of Trump-style xenophobia carried out an attack by plowing a small gray car, sans a COEXIST bumper sticker, into a campus crowd, before stabbing a few people with a butcher knife that he had grabbed instead of “grabbing pussy”.

Unfortunately for Down with Trump OSU, the Ali Artan car-and-knife attack happened swiftly.

Ali Artan mowed down a dozen people so fast that those concerned about police brutalizing marginalized Muslims were unable to slow down the jihadist by jabbing the tires on his car with safety pins, or “shelter in place” at a campus safe zone.

Thank God for the quick thinking Alan Harujko, an armed police officer. Alan dared to shoot the frenzied jihadist dead with an actual gun, in a gun free zone, turning Ali Artan into a literal participant of a “die-in” by laying him flat out on the sidewalk awaiting a hearse for more than 13 minutes.

In the end, Palestinian activist El-Yousseph did make an apt observation when he said that the morning after the election some Ohio State University students have “been asleep and [have] woken up to a nightmare.” The difference is that the nightmare he and everyone else woke up to the morning Abdul Razak Ali Artan terrorized the OSU campus was not the same nightmare El-Yousseph and Yohn had envisioned the day after Donald Trump was elected.

HYPOCRITE: Obama Picks At A SPLINTER in Trump’s Eye But Has A SEQUOIA In His Own

Image result for plank in eyeOriginally posted at Clash Daily

Just a few days after a purportedly friendly meeting with Donald Trump at the White House, haughty, pompous, supercilious, know-it-all Barack Obama held a press conference, where, with a smile and an air of instructive concern, he proceeded to insult Donald Trump.

The event preceded an upcoming apology tour where the president has plans to explain to befuddled world leaders how “deplorable” voters who “cling to guns, religion, and xenophobia” managed to upset the American electoral process.

Let’s face it; Barack Obama is a quintessential liberal and the problem with liberals is that they are notorious for pointing out splinters while struggling with sequoias of their own.

Take for instance Obama warning that Trump’s “temperament” will undermine his progress unless he “corrects” it. This advice comes from a guy whose two-term vindictiveness includes this press conference and for eight-years, depending on the topic, has been continually on display.

Barack Obama warning Trump to correct his temperament is like Madonna advising post-menopausal women to act their age.

Lest we forget, America’s Nobel Peace Prize winner has spitefully retaliated against everyone who criticized him from the police to the Tea Party to Fox News to Bibi Netanyahu.

At the press conference, Obama attempted to provide a red-meat reality check by saying that Trump will not be able to fulfill his campaign pledges. The president said, “Whatever you bring to this office, this office has a habit of magnifying and pointing out. And hopefully, then you correct for it.”

Lacking self-awareness, clearly, Obama doesn’t realize that although the first part of his statement is 100% true, he never put the correction part into practice himself.

The president also pointed out that Trump is more “pragmatic” than “ideological,” which an ideologue like Obama probably doesn’t realize is a compliment, not an insult.

Although Barack Obama has a list of gaffes a mile long, that didn’t stop him from admonishing Trump for saying what Obama calls “inaccurate” things at rallies.

The president cautioned that “everybody is paying attention” and “markets move” when presidents speak. What Obama didn’t mention was how favorably the market has rebounded since Donald Trump was elected, nor did he cite examples of his own glaring inexactitude.

Take for instance when “Magical Mystery Tour” Barack, on the campaign trail in 2008 shared, “I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go, not counting Alaska and Hawaii.”

Obama also forgot how he called a Navy corpsman a “corpse man”, signed a guest book in London’s Westminster Abbey, “24 May 2008,” when it was 2011, and how, after 12 people were killed by a Kansas twister, he lamented that, “Ten thousand people died [and] an entire town [was] destroyed.”

Instead, after praising President-Elect Donald Trump for pulling off “one of the biggest political upsets in history,” and doing it despite George Soros’s influence, and 3 million illegals voting, Barack Obama chose to couch his commendations in a series of snide, denigrating remarks.

Ignoring his own razor-thin resume, the former community organizer, whose race and charismatic speaking style catapulted him to the presidency, predicted that once Trump is in office, “reality [will have] a way of asserting itself.”

Ah! So, “reality asserting itself” must be what caused Obama to waste $800+ billion dollars on a failed stimulus package. And if that’s true, then “assertive realism” must also be what caused Obama to give hoards of illegal felons, unaccompanied minors, and ISIS sympathizers permission to invade the US.

Pesky ‘”assertive reality” is likely also the reason Obama left four Americans to die in Benghazi, destroyed the US healthcare system, swelled unemployment numbers to unprecedented proportions, and contributed to 35% of the US population ending up on welfare rolls.

And finally, “realistic assertion” can be blamed for instigating Barack Obama to foment racial violence, diss our ally Israel, anger Vladimir Putin, support the Arab Spring, hand a nuke to Iran, walk guns over the border to Mexican drug cartels, and pack a pallet with $400 million in cash and load it onto a US cargo plane and deliver it to a genocidal terrorist state.

Either way, the president took the opportunity to say that, notwithstanding “concerns” about turning the White House (which is the People’s House, not his house) over to a pushy Republican, he has confidence that once Trump is inaugurated the billionaire real estate mogul’s enthusiasm will be dampened.

When he warned that “the federal government and our democracy is not a speedboat, it’s an ocean liner,” those words paid homage to Michelle, the woman who managed to spend well over $100 million tax dollars on lavish “ocean liner”-like vacations.

And the hammering didn’t stop there.

Clearly disgruntled, America’s most infamous sound bite whore actually had the brazen effrontery to say this about some of the things Trump said on the campaign trail, “You know, there are certain things that made for good, good sound bites, but don’t always translate into good policy.”

Wait! Wasn’t it the “Hope and Change” merchant whose campaign sound bites promised that if he was elected “the rise of the oceans would slow and our planet heal”? Then, after all the “good sound bites”, blinded-by-a-beam Obama’s policies reeked havoc on America while simultaneously submerging the world in chaos and bloodshed.

In the end, Obama is well aware that Trump being elected is a full repudiation of his atrocious presidency, devastated political party, and detrimental ideology. Proving once again that, in an effort to regain credibility, liberal hypocrites like Barack Obama, to distract from their own sequoia, will focus on a splinter.

‘Hamilton’ Attempts to Lure Pence into a Duel

Image result for Hamilton Mike PenceOriginally posted at American Thinker

Recently, “Love Trumps Hate” bullies, afflicted with a perverted sense of self-righteousness participated in a weighted battle by luring in, and then ambushing, Mike Pence. It happened when the unsuspecting Vice President-elect decided to take in a leisurely performance of the highly acclaimed musical production of Hamilton.

In addition to incorporating rap, hip-hop, R&B, and pop into the Tony-award winning score, by pretending our founding fathers weren’t white, Hamilton embraces a revisionist version of ethnic and racial history.

In fact, choosing to cast white historical figures with non-white actors may be the reason our racially divisive president is such a huge fan of the play.

In any case, lead producer, Jeffrey Seller, had this to say about Hamilton’s choice to waylay a “Helpless” Mr. Pence:

We had to ask ourselves, how do we cope with this? Our cast could barely go on stage the day after the election. The election was painful and crushing to all of us here. We all struggled with what was the appropriate and respectful and proper response. We are honored that Mr. Pence attended the show, and we had to use this opportunity to express our feelings.

This sort of juvenile sniveling comes from a company of performers that pride themselves on chronicling the grit, bravery, and struggles exhibited by the heroes of our early republic. Therefore, maybe someone needs to inform the cast of Hamilton that a Broadway musical’s purpose is not to make a cowardly partisan proclamation that Alexander Hamilton would probably react to with complete disdain – it’s to entertain.

And so, rather than extol the greatness of American democracy, in response to the Vice President-elect being in the audience, the creator, director, lead producer, and Hamilton cast members collaborated on a message that sought to reaffirm the merits of the racially biased “artistic truth” the play personifies.

Initially, while Pence made his way to his seat, he was subjected to both jeers and cheers. Afterward, rather than remain seated, the governor of Indiana stood in the hallway and listened to the curtain call. It was there that Pence suffered through a discourse delivered by Brandon Victor Dixon a black actor who plays Aaron Burr.

Dixon admonished Pence saying:

We, sir — we — are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights.

Dixon continued, “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFj23ncIzk4

After that provocative display of scripted codswallop, the audience responded to the inappropriate singling out of Pence with mixed reviews.

Either way, the cast of the billion-dollar show clearly believes that Trump and Pence require stage actors to instruct them on American diversity, goad them to “work on behalf of all of us,” and remind them to “uphold our inalienable rights.”

What was also apparent is that the left is “alarmed and anxious” because Hillary losing the election portends that the advancement of distorted liberal values is coming to an end.

Judging from Dixon’s soliloquy, it seems as if this imperious band of intolerant hatemongers is concerned that the earth that Obama promised to, but didn’t, heal is now destined for destruction.

Moreover, adding to that growing anxiety is the realization that the children Clinton vowed to abort, the parents whose lives Obamacare put in danger, and the Constitution that the left attempted to shred, may all escape an untimely end.

In the meantime, none of this is a surprise.

Ambushing political adversaries is a technique Barack Obama perfected throughout his presidency. This is a man who mastered the art of inviting spectators to a function and then using the bully pulpit to launch verbal attacks.

What Mike Pence suffered through at Hamilton is reminiscent of the 2010 SOTU where Obama publicly attempted to humiliate conservative members of the SCOTUS.

Akin to what actor Brandon Victor Dixon did to Pence, upset about the high court’s Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision, Obama unleashed a verbal barrage directed at judges sitting front and center.

Following the incident, in a New York Times article, entitled: “Supreme Court Gets a Rare Rebuke, in Front of a Nation,” author Adam Liptak wrote:

It is not unusual for presidents to disagree publicly with Supreme Court decisions. But they tend to do so at news conferences and in written statements, not to the justices’ faces.

Unlike Mike Pence, who smiled and did not respond to the Hamilton criticism, when Samuel A. Alito Jr., who was part of the majority decision, heard what Obama was saying, he shook his head and mouthed the words “Not true.”

Former New Jersey Supreme Court justice Peter G. Verniero had this to say about the SCOTUS ambush:

The court’s legitimacy is derived from the persuasiveness of its opinions and the expectation that those opinions are rendered free of partisan, political influences. The more that individual justices are drawn into public debates, the more the court, as an institution will be seen in political terms, which was not the intent of the founders.

After Obama’s rant, the left’s response in the House Chamber was similar to the reaction in the Richard Rodgers Theater – liberals in the audience jumped to their feet and gave the political provocateur a standing ovation.

Sadly, for America, just as it is unfitting for a sitting president to publicly rebuke the Supreme Court, a Broadway show about an America’s founder is an equally inappropriate venue to sabotage a future vice president.

But that’s what liberals do.

To guard against retaliation, the left ambushes rivals and subjects them to public ridicule. Then, after openly taunting the defenseless, the offenders rely on the applause of deluded partisans in their midst to lend credibility to deceitfulness, and to justify the ensnaring of political prey.

And so, by masquerading as musical theater, the prejudiced cast of Hamilton attempted to make Vice President-elect Mike Pence the target of a one-sided duel.

OPINION Has DePaul University taken a bigoted stand against bigotry?

Originally posted at Live Action News

In May of 2016, Black Lives Matter protestors at the nation’s largest Catholic university, Chicago’s DePaul University, physically assaulted controversial conservative public speaker, Milo Yiannopoulos.

Then, three months later, citing security concerns, DePaul’s Young Americans for Freedom were prohibited from inviting conservative pundit, nationally syndicated columnist, author, radio talk show host, and attorney, Ben Shapiro.

In keeping with these sorts of decisions, DePaul University recently forbade conservative students from displaying pro-life posters on campus. These posters were simple, proclaiming, “Unborn Lives Matter,” along with the date and time of DePaul College Republican meetings on campus.

Citing the university’s Guiding Principles on Speech and Expression, university president Father Dennis Holtschneider, who is resigning as of the end of the year after admitting he mishandled campus race relations, pointed out that the poster — which sought to elevate the sanctity of all life — “provokes the Black Lives Matter movement” and should be redesigned.

In a letter to the College Republicans, Holtschneider said that “under the cover of free speech,” the words “Unborn Lives Matter” could be interpreted as “bigotry.” In his letter defending why DePaul decided hanging pro-life posters constitutes bigotry, Father Holtschneider wrote:

By our nature, we are committed to developing arguments and exploring important issues that can be steeped in controversy and, oftentimes, emotion. Yet there will be times when some forms of speech challenge our grounding in Catholic and Vincentian values. When that happens, you will see us refuse to allow members of our community be subjected to bigotry that occurs under the cover of free speech.

In part, the DePaul website outlines the charitable Vincentian values Father Holtschneider mentions in his letter:

Motivated by the example of St. Vincent, who instilled a love of God by leading his contemporaries in serving urgent human needs, the DePaul community is above all characterized by ennobling the God-given dignity of each person. This religious personalism is manifested by the members of the DePaul community in a sensitivity to and care for the needs of each other and of those served, with a special concern for the deprived members of society.

Maybe someone needs to ask Fr. Holtschneider what he, as a Catholic, considers a more “urgent human need” than the right to preserve the life of every unborn child. Or maybe while trying to avoid stepping on racial landmines, Holtschneider could also enlighten us as to how openly expressing a true sentiment like ‘unborn life matters’ fails to ennoble the “God-given dignity of each person.”

Then, in keeping with his Vincentian values argument, after the soon-to-be-retired university president clarifies the first two points, he can then explain why the 3,000 preborn babies robbed of the right to life daily — many of whom are black — are not considered the most “deprived members of society.”

In the end, despite citing Catholic and Vincentian values, it appears that at DePaul University, conservative students are becoming the victims of politically correct restrictions imposed on them by university administrators who discriminate against conservative values.
