UK: Single Mom Of 4 Demands Better Free Housing – The Council’s ‘Job’ Is To ‘Look After Us’

Somebody needs to pay for all my children!

Remember this old viral video?

As PJ Media’s Megan Fox noted, our media has been selling shipping container houses and tiny homes as the hot new thing for impoverished young people.

Andrew Yang even said earlier this month the thought of living in a shipping container apartment “was downright appealing.”

NBC News: “Heterosexuality Is Just Not Working’

man and woman hetrosexuality

By Thomas D. Williams, PH.D – August 23, 2019

Women are increasingly opting out of heterosexuality because it is “the bedrock of their global oppression,” NBC News asserted in a bizarre opinion piece this week.

“Men need heterosexuality to maintain their societal dominance over women,” writesMarcie Bianco for the NBC News website. “Women, on the other hand, are increasingly realizing not only that they don’t need heterosexuality, but that it also is often the bedrock of their global oppression.”

Ms. Bianco lumps together a series of recent news stories, “from Jeffrey Epstein to the Dayton and El Paso mass shooters, to Miley Cyrus’s separation and Julianne Hough’s declaration that she’s ‘not straight,’” which, she says, “together have laid bare the strictures of an American patriarchy on the edge of a nervous breakdown.”

“As the status quo, heterosexuality is just not working,” she concludes, before explaining just how evil men are and how women are learning to live without them.

“As a snapshot of 2019 America, these stories present a startling picture: Men continue to coerce, harass, rape and kill girls and women — and go to extreme lengths to avoid responsibility for their actions,” she states. “On the other side of the issue, girls and women are challenging heterosexuality, and even absconding from it altogether.”

“Patriarchy is at its most potent when oppression doesn’t feel like oppression, or when it is packaged in terms of biology, religion, or basic social needs like security comfort, acceptance and success,” Ms. Bianco declares.

“Heterosexuality offers women all these things as selling points to their consensual subjection,” she concludes, in a painful piece of contorted logic that reveals far more about the writer than it does about society and its institutions.

“Historically, women have been conditioned to believe that heterosexuality is natural or innate, just as they have been conditioned to believe that their main purpose is to make babies — and if they fail to do so, they are condemned as not ‘real,’ or as bad, women,” she pronounces.

A series of new role models are emerging, she suggests, whose lives and choices — as dysfunctional as they may appear to the general public — are teaching women how to take back power from men.

“Celebrities are not always at the vanguard of feminist thought, but both Julianne Hough and Miley Cyrus have recently spoken out about sexuality in ways that puts the power — and responsibility — back into their own hands,” she declares.

Men, on the other hand, particularly heterosexual men, are a blight on the earth and a source of unending woes, one infers.

“Where men seem to never to have to take responsibility for their actions, women always must take responsibility for not only their own actions but the actions of men,” she states. “Absconding from responsibility is the quintessential strategy of the patriarchy; it’s how men stay in control and never lose their power.”

“While men stew in their mess, women are rising,” she continues. “They are taking back control of their lives and their bodies and they are questioning the foundation of the patriarchy — heterosexuality — that has kept them blindly subordinate for centuries.”

While Ms. Bianco is certainly entitled to her opinions, as outrageous as they may be, one cannot help but wonder why NBC News would want to abet such overt and venomous misandry.

A similar tirade proposing that women are the source of all the world’s ills would garner well-deserved condemnation and no self-respecting news site would publish it.

Why, then, prop up such irrational hatred when the target is men?

BARACK OBAMA BARRED A MEMBER OF THE ISRAELI KNESSET FROM VISITING US IN 2012

Barack Obama Barred A Member Of The Israeli Knesset From Visiting US In 2012

Just seven years ago, former President Barack Obama barred a member of the Israeli Knesset from entering the U.S.

By Virginia Kruta

Critics called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s move to bar two freshman Democratic congresswomen from entering Israel “unprecedented” — but just seven years ago, former President Barack Obama barred a member of the Israeli Knesset from entering the U.S.

When news broke that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would not allow freshman Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, pundits and political figures alike were quick to voice their criticisms.

But The Daily Wire’s editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro reminded former Vice President Joe Biden of the Obama administration’s move to ban Israeli Knesset member Michael Ben Ari in 2012.

Screen Shot 2019-08-20 at 3.08.31 PM

Ben Ari, who belonged to Israel’s National Union coalition of right-wing parties, requested a visa in order to attend two conferences — a request which was denied by the Obama administration in February of 2012. The American consulate denied the visa on the grounds that Ben Ari “belonged to a terrorist organization.”

The American consulate never publicly released the name of the terrorist organization to which they believed Ben Ari belonged, but he told Israeli outlet Haaretz that he suspected it was his association with Kach — a far-right political movement that was considered a terrorist organization and had been banned in Israel 18 years prior in 1994.

Ben Ari responded to the move saying, “The U.S. government, who receives with open arms [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad, who calls for the destruction of Israel, [Palestinian President Mahmoud] Abbas, who planned the murder of children in Jerusalem, and [Israeli Arab MK] Ahmed Tibi, who enthusiastically encourages shahids, chose to bar me from meeting with Jewish communities in the U.S. and to encourage aliyah to Israel, with claims that I am a terrorist.”

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin called the move “unacceptable,” saying in a letter to then U.S. Ambassador Dan Shapiro, “National Union is a completely legitimate faction of the Israeli parliament, and Ben Ari an elected representative of the State of Israel, a close American ally. To impugn him as belonging to a terrorist organization and bar him from visiting the country is unacceptable.”

Ben Ari, now a part of the far-right Otzma-Yehudit party, was banned from running for office in March of 2019. The High Court of Justice voted 8-1 to ban him, citing his “anti-Arab ideology,” marking the first time an individual candidate has been banned from elections. The court approved a far-left Jewish candidate and an Arab party slate.

Democrat Ilhan Omar: Israel Is NOT an Ally and is NOT a “Democracy” – Must Give Palestinians Freedom of Movement into Israel (VIDEO)

By Jim Hoft

Anti-Semitic Democrats Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) lashed out at the Israeli government on Monday in a joint press conference in Minnesota.

On Thursday Democrats Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were banned from entering Israel after months of their frequent attacks on the Jewish state and their promotion of the anti-Semitic BDS movement.
Their trip was planned by the antisemitic, pro-terror Miftah organization.

On Monday the radical Democrats lashed out at Israel for blocking their entry.

** Rashida Tlaib lashed out at the Israel security wall that eliminated terrorist attacks in their country.

The two Democrats also threatened US aid to the Jewish State.

Rep. Ilhan Omar: We give Israel more than $3 million in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region and (airquotes) “the only democracy” in the Middle East. But denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally and denying millions of people freedom of movement, or expression or self determination is not consistent with being a democracy. We must be asking as Israel’s ally the Netanyahu government stop the expansion of settlements on Palestinian land and ensure full rights to Palestinians if we are to give them aid. These are not just my views.

 

MAXINE WATERS ASKS FOR MONEY BACK FROM HOMELESS WOMAN ON SKID ROW

Maxine Waters Asks For Money Back From Homeless Woman on Skid Row

Bad optics.

 – AUGUST 20, 2019

While visiting LA’s poverty-stricken Skid Row, Congresswoman Maxine Waters made sure to ask for her $10 dollars in change back after buying a book from a homeless person.

The optics weren’t great.

“Waters visited the desolate on the corner of 5th and San Pedro in the heart of the city’s Skid Row, where she touted a $13 billion bill known as the “Ending Homelessness Act,” reports the American Mirror.

Along with Rep. Al Green and a gaggle of her staff, Waters visited a “tent protest” organized by homeless activist Stephanie Arnold Williams.

“I put all these tents here, with my own money,” Williams said. “Free sewing for the community. I do high-blood pressure readings. I give shade … and a place to sit.”

After purchasing a book from Williams and forgetting her name, Waters seemed overly concerned about getting back the $10 she was owed by the homeless person.

“And she’s so creative. She set up a really nice environment here, but she’s got all these educational books. And guess what? I bought the … Langston Hughes book, $10,” Waters said, waving around a $20 bill. “I need change.”

Well, that was awkward.

Illinois Senator Forced to Apologize After Simulated Murder of President Trump at His Fundraiser

Illinois state senator Martin Sandoval was forced to apologize after a violent display occurred at his fundraiser where his supporters performed a brutal mock assassination of President Donald Trump.

The fundraiser took place at the Klein Creek Golf Club where donors donated at least $250 to Sandoval in order to attend. The photos were leaked over Facebook, and Sandoval is pictured posing with the man who held the fake weapon and conducted the mock assassination. It is unknown whether Sandoval was aware of the violent display that took place at his event.

“The incident that took place is unacceptable,” he said. “I don’t condone violence toward the President or anyone else. I apologize that something like this happened at my event.”

Top officials of the Democrat and Republican parties in Illinois are speaking out against the display as well.

“As our nation grapples with the epidemic of gun violence, purposely pointing a fake gun at anyone is insensitive and wrong,” Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker said. “I condemn actions like the ones displayed in the pictures because they lack the civility our politics demands.”

“The tragedies in El Paso and Gilroy have demonstrated how hate-filled political rhetoric can fuel violence,” said Maura Possley, who works as the spokesperson for Illinois Democrats. “These images are unacceptable and dangerous. The place to make our voices heard against Trump is at the ballot box.”

“The apology from Sen. Sandoval for the detestable pictures from his event depicting an assassination of President Trump is too little, too late,” Illinois GOP Chairman Tim Schneider said through a spokesman.

Unable to Promote Anti-Israel Agenda, Rashida Tlaib Rejects Visit to Her Grandma in West Bank

The state of Israel called Rashida Tlaib’s bluff, and her tremendous hypocrisy has been exposed as a result.

By Shane Trejo

After Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) were barred from entering the state of Israel yesterday due to their anti-Semitic comments and positions, Tlaib immediately played the victim card as she claimed heartbreak over not being able to see her beloved grandmother.

Screen Shot 2019-08-16 at 2.56.23 PM

Israel showed compassion following her cries, and reversed their decision, allowing Tlaib entry in order to visit her grandmother as long as she did not proselytize her anti-Israel beliefs while making her visit.

However, Tlaib quickly backtracked and refused go to on the trip, angry that she would be unable to promote her pro-Palestine political agenda while in attendance.

Israel interior minister Aryeh Deri skewered her in a Tweet as a result:

However, it was revealed that Israel simply granted Tlaib’s written request to Deri that she made just a day ago:

Tlaib’s hypocrisy is on full display, as she has proven that she was using her familial ties as a way to garner sympathy. Israel called her bluff, and the socialist legislator has never looked more foolish as a result. This entire situation has been another loss for “the Squad,” and another victory for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
