Ivanka Stands Defiant in Interview Regarding Email Issues

The false equivalencies of the liberal left have been expertly dissected by the First Daughter.

Ivanka Trump

Last week, American democrats were handed what they believed to be a blockbuster headline that could shake the Trump administration to the core:

Ivanka Trump Caught Using Private Email for WH Business

Shades of the Hillary Clinton email scandal were immediately raised, with the left wholly pouncing on the opportunity to compare the two.  It was a soundbite smorgasbord in the mainstream media as well, with near-giddy anchors and hosts lambasting the First Daughter’s suppose hypocrisy.

Then, as the day wore on, however, it became rather apparent that this was a wildly false equivalency.

Ivanka herself has now taken to the media to explain why.

“All of my emails are stored and preserved. There were no deletions,” President Donald Trump’s elder daughter and adviser told ABC News in an interview broadcast Wednesday.

The Washington Post reported this month that Ivanka Trump sent hundreds of emails about government business from a personal email account last year to White House aides, Cabinet members and her assistant, many in violation of public records rules.

“There is no restriction of using personal email,” she said. “In fact, we’re instructed that if we receive an email to our personal account that could relate to government work, you simply just forward it to your government account so it can be archived.”

Of course, the fact this Hillary Clinton stored a secret, hidden email server in the State Department makes the whole story quite different as well.

Oh, and let’s not forget that Hillary was sending information that was undeniably classified and illegal, and then spent an exorbitant amount of effort to attempt to cover her tracks.

Tokyo Woke No Mo’: IOC Bans BLM Apparel for Olympics

…and it was the players’ idea!

Published

on

Over the course of the last several years, Americans have been inundated with the melding of sports and politics, as athletes from around the nation continue to express their political and cultural beliefs while on the job. For many, this has been an annoyance and not an elevation of the game, as Americans continues to complain about their “escape” from the real world now being tainted with a whole lot of drama from the real world. That won’t be the case in Tokyo, however, as the International Olympic Committee looks to put the kibosh on virtue signaling.  Olympics athletes will not be allowed to wear “Black Lives Matter” apparel during ceremonies at the upcoming Tokyo Olympic games, according to new rules posted by the International Olympics Committee (IOC). The IOC revealed its newest policy changes last month, noting that no political demonstrations will be allowed on the field of play. And IOC officials have since confirmed that the rules also ban any use of Black Lives Matter imagery, logos, apparel, slogans, and activism, according to TMZ Sports. The move came after the IOC polled the participating athletes on the subject. The IOC claimed that its prohibitions on athlete activism came after a poll found that a “majority” of the 3,500 athletes polled favored the ban. “A very clear majority of athletes said that they think it’s not appropriate to demonstrate or express their views on the field of play, at the official ceremonies, or at the podium,” said IOC Athletes’ Commission chief Kirsty Coventry. “So our recommendation is to preserve the podium, field of play, and official ceremonies from any kind of protest or demonstrations or acts perceived as such,” Coventry added. Given the high profile nature of the IOC’s stance, it will be interesting to see just how many athletes attempt…

Cuomo Announces Bribery Meant to Bump Up Vaccination Numbers

Local leaders are banging their heads against the wall trying to find creative new ways to circumvent vaccine hesitancy.

America is on the precipice of a grand recovery, the likes of which we haven’t experienced in over a century, but some authorities are concerned that a slowing of our vaccination rates could set the whole house of cards aflame. Vaccine hesitancy has long been an issue in this effort, with US citizens having long been distrustful of both the government and the pharmaceutical industry, (often for good reason).  This, combined with the recent news of a number of adverse side effects, has driven participation in the vaccination drive down drastically, forcing a number of local leaders to take drastic action.  On Wednesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the Mets and Yankees Major League Baseball teams would give free tickets to fans who got vaccinated at the ball parks before games. And he’s not the only one. New Jersey and Connecticut are partnering with bars and brew pubs to offer a free drink to people who are newly vaccinated, while Maryland announced it would give $100 to state employees who get inoculated. In Colorado, a non-profit organization is planning to reach out to rural conservatives – a group that includes many vaccine skeptics – at county fairs and rodeos. Immunize Colorado also will use pop-up and Zoom events to appeal directly to immigrant groups and communities of color, where issues of access and distrust of the medical establishment have prevented many people from rolling up their sleeves. The worry is that vaccine hesitancy could lead to a delay in reaching “herd immunity” in the United States, which is necessary in order to prevent further mutations of the COVID-19 virus.
