French Prez Says EU Needs and Army to STOP USA?!

This may be one of the most asinine examples of European fear mongering that we’ve seen in DECADES.

US President Donald Trump has long been bothered by the lopsided and overtly negative coverage that he receives in the press.

This was also the case before Trump was President, at a time when he was a controversial real estate mogul and media darling who eventually became a reality television star.  Trump has always been at the forefront of his own image; a self-made man who is unafraid to exude precisely that sentiment.  This has had him involved in innumerable spats and clashes throughout his career, both as a private businessman and as the President.

Today, however, we may have reached a new threshold in the intentional fear mongering surrounding the US President, with authorities in France sounding a doozy of an alarm.

French President Emmanuel Macron has reiterated calls for a European Union army, this time saying that it is needed to protect the bloc from China, Russia, and even the United States.

The progressive leader, a proponent of greater EU federalisation which will result in the reduction in sovereignty for European nations, told Europe 1 Monday night that the bloc needs a “real European army”.

“We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,” Macron said, according to Agence France-Presse.

“When I see President Trump announcing that he’s quitting a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s euro-missile crisis that hit Europe, who is the main victim? Europe and its security,” he said.

Calling Donald Trump a scoundrel is one thing, but accusing him of being a future conqueror of the European continent is something else entirely.

Colin Kaepernick Furious with Rapper Travis Scott for Taking Super Bowl Gig

Is this really the kind of squabble that ANYONE wants to pay attention to?

Colin Kaepernick

Rapper Travis Scott defied a boycott of the Super Bowl set up by a list of black performers and now reports say that the beneficiary of the boycott, former NFL player Colin Kaepernick, is not at all happy with the rapper’s decision to work with the NFL.

According to a number of reports, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is upset that rapper Travis Scott decided to to perform at the upcoming Super Bowl.

Despite the reports, Scott claims that Kaepernick “respected” his decision to play this year’s halftime show.

A long list of black performers, including Cardi B, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Meek Mills, and many others, announced a boycott of the Super Bowl to show support for Colin Kaepernick, who was benched by the league after the 2016 season during which he invented the anti-American protest as the national anthem played. Kaepernick in now suing the league claiming the league and its owners “colluded” to keep him from continuing his pro football career.

Boycott or no, Scott bucked the group of black entertainers and signed up to perform alongside rock band Maroon 5.

Scott claimed that he required the NFL to make a large donation to a social justice cause as a prerequisite for his performance. However, Scott has not reported the amount of the donation nor to what social justice group that donation was to be given.

Scott also took the step of having a conversation with Kaepernick to explain why he was taking the Super Bowl gig.

Per Variety:

Scott and Kaepernick had at least one phone conversation before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety. A source close to Scott said that while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way and he felt that the money going toward Dream Corps, combined with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, will do some good. The source also said that Scott would not confirm his performance until the donation was locked in.

This is not the same story people close to Kaepernick are telling.

According to Kaepernick’s activist girlfriend, Nessa Diab, Scott is full of it.

Diab, a California radio personality and loud social justice advocate, jumped to her Twitter account to refute the claims that there was mutual respect between Kaepernick and Scott.

Diab also posted a message to Instagram divulging more of her thoughts on Scott’s actions:

1. Artists don’t get paid to perform at “the big game.” These performers are CHOOSING to do this for a ‘look.’

2. The fact that many people have told him don’t support the organization that has blackballed [Kaepernick] for standing up for people, and he still does it anyways, shows more about him than anything else.

AND! If someone wants to work with the opposition, then that’s on them, BUT DO NOT have your team lie to reporters to insinuate Colin was okay with anyone working against him. PERIOD!

The former San Francisco 49er quarterback himself has not spoken publicly about the discussion with the rapper, but his girlfriend’s messages are telling, nonetheless.

For his part, Scott added a statement about the issue: “I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in. I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”

The 2019 Super Bowl will be played on February 3 after the last two wild card games are played this coming weekend to determine which two teams will meet for the championship.

REPORT: Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Retire This Month, Has Contracted Pneumonia

Could be huge…

The writing is on the wall.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, has recently canceled multiple events.

She has also skipped multiple days of oral arguments for the first time in her career.

Back in September, The Santa Monica Observer reported RBG had developed cancer.

Snopes, the far-left “fact-checking” site, said that report was false.

Snopes lied.

Ginsburg did, indeed, have surgery for cancer.

The Santa Monica Observer is now saying Ruth has contracted pneumonia and will retire from the bench in January 2019.

Here’s their headline from the article:

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has had a re-occurrence of malignant melanoma, she has told her law clerks. Ginsburg was treated in 1999 for colon cancer and had surgery in 2009 for pancreatic cancer.

She has told key Democratic members of the Senate about her medical condition, including ranking Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein.

More:

Following surgery, she has developed complications including pneumonia. Pneumonia often afflicts elderly post surgery patients in the US, since antibiotics have resulted in Multi Resistant Strains of the lung infection.

The left and the main stream media have tried to put on a brave face as Ginsburg missed three straight days of argument this week, interviewing cancer doctors to say that she would recover. They claimed that she was working in her hospital room, knowing that it was untrue.

Liberals offered up vital organs to Ginsburg as she recovers from broken ribs and the removal of tumors.

They have a feeling, given her advanced age, that President Trump may soon be appointing his third Supreme Court nominee.

Anti-Trump filmmaker Michael Moore decided to mock Christians by using an RBG doll as his Christmas tree topper this year.

You know, because absolutely everything has to be political!

My Christmas Tree Topper this year. Better than an angel or the star over Bethlehem. A nation of millions stand with you…

The much-hyped miderm election “blue wave” turned out to be less of a tsunami and more of a light sprinkling, as the GOP grew in the Senate and lost minimally in the House.

Historically, the party of the sitting president doesn’t do well in the midterms in either the lower or upper chamber.

And yet, while the GOP ceded control of the House to Democrats, the loss could’ve been much worse.

As for President Trump’s chances in 2020, things are certainly looking up, as a Republican will remain governor in swing states Ohio and Florida.

What does Moore think of Dems’ chances?

From Free Beacon:

Liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore on Wednesday said President Donald Trump is a “tumor” on the political system but predicted he will hold onto the White House in 2020 if Democrats don’t run a “beloved American” or non-politician.

Moore appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss the midterm election results from Tuesday night and how they will affect the 2020 election. He said Trump is a “tumor on our democracy” but noted Democratic victories caused the “tumor” to shrink last night.

WATCH:

At the moment, the top choice for Democrat presidential nominee in 2020 is “none of the above.”

Not Joe Biden. Not Eric Holder.

Not Hillary Clinton or Michael Avenatti.

Not Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, or Elizabeth Warren.

Not Michael Bloomberg, Bernie Sanders, or Amy Klobuchar.

From The Hill:

The survey, conducted among 680 registered voters who identified themselves as Democrats or independents, found that “none of the above” was the most popular choice among potential 2020 challengers to President Trump.

Thirty percent of the sample said they would prefer that “none of the above” become the Democratic nominee when asked to choose among former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D), Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I), New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D), California Sen. Kamala Harris (D), former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

65 million people voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, and failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke just broke every single one of their hearts.
