President Trump Just Referred to Himself as a ‘Stable Genius.’ The Reason Why Totally Makes Sense

Published

on

On Thursday, President Trump stated that the recent NATO summit in Brussels was a stupendous success, referring to himself as a “stable genius” for pressing allies to give more money to the organization and actually making it happen.

Trump took the other folks in attendance to task for not giving more to the group in the opening moments of the summit, a move that many in left-wing media called “harsh rhetoric.” This isn’t surprising given the liberal aversion to alpha male leadership.

However, the move produced results, so that should pretty much shut their mouths on the issue.

“Yesterday, I let them know that I was extremely unhappy with what was happening, and they have substantially upped their commitment,” Trump said at around noon local time in Belgium. “I told people that I’d be very unhappy if they did not up their commitments very substantially,” he told reporters after the emergency session.

“Tremendous progress has been made. Everyone’s agreed to substantially up their commitment. They’re going to up it at levels that they’ve never thought of before,” Trump said. “Commitments were made,” he added. “The commitment was at 2 percent, ultimately that’ll be going up quite a bit higher than that.”

“Everyone in the room thanked me. There was a great collegial spirit in that room. . . . Very unified, very strong. No problem,” Trump said. “NATO is much stronger now than it was two days ago.”

On Wednesday, Trump said many NATO members are “delinquent” in their payments to the alliance, saying they “owe us a tremendous amount of money from many years back.”

But there were few details of the new arrangement. “Trump did not specify which countries had committed to what, and it remained unclear whether any had changed their plans. He seemed to suggest a speeded-up timeline, saying nations would be ‘spending at a much faster clip,'” the Associated Press reported.

During a press conference after the summit, Trump was asked if he would end up flipping on NATO allies the same way he did Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after the G7 talks.

“That’s other people that do that,” Trump said. “I don’t. I’m very consistent. I’m a very stable genius.”

You don’t have to necessarily like the president to admit that what he’s doing seems to be working, especially on the geopolitical stage. The way Trump conducts himself, as an alpha male, seems to pull in the respect of other nations, even if they dislike him personally.

As long as he’s producing results that help prosper our nation, keep us safe, and perhaps enable us to spread a little bit of freedom around the world, why not give him the honor he’s due? You don’t have to agree with everything he does, just admit that when he’s done good, he’s done good.

TX School Administrator Suggests Teaching ‘Opposing Viewpoints’ to The Holocaust

State level authorities were quick to shut that theory down.

Published

on

There is apparently some sever confusion in the Lone Star State regarding the nature of a new law regarding public school curriculums, and it has many around the nation alarmed.

The idea of school as a place to open your mind and absurd a variety of different viewpoints is nothing new.  In fact, it isn’t hard to argue that this is perhaps exactly what the public education system should be doing.

But there are some viewpoints out there that do not meet the standard of our civilized society, and one school administrator in Texas appears to believe that the new law requires these heinous conspiracy theories to become part of the classroom.

A top administrator with the Carroll Independent School District in Southlake advised teachers last week that if they have a book about the Holocaust in their classroom, they should also offer students access to a book from an “opposing” perspective, according to an audio recording obtained by NBC News.

Gina Peddy, the Carroll school district’s executive director of curriculum and instruction, made the comment Friday afternoon during a training session on which books teachers can have in classroom libraries. The training came four days after the Carroll school board, responding to a parent’s complaint, voted to reprimand a fourth grade teacher who had kept an anti-racism book in her classroom.

A Carroll staff member secretly recorded the Friday training and shared the audio with NBC News.

“Just try to remember the concepts of [House Bill] 3979,” Peddy said in the recording, referring to a new Texas law that requires teachers to present multiple perspectives when discussing “widely debated and currently controversial” issues. “And make sure that if you have a book on the Holocaust,” Peddy continued, “that you have one that has an opposing, that has other perspectives.”

State officials were quick to point out that this is not what the new law suggests.

Clay Robison, a spokesman for the Texas State Teachers Association, a union representing educators, said there’s nothing in the new Texas law explicitly dealing with classroom libraries. Robison said the book guidelines at Carroll, a suburban school district near Fort Worth, are an “overreaction” and a “misinterpretation” of the law. Three other Texas education policy experts agreed.

“We find it reprehensible for an educator to require a Holocaust denier to get equal treatment with the facts of history,” Robison said. “That’s absurd. It’s worse than absurd. And this law does not require it.”

Some lawmakers responded as well.

State Sen. Bryan Hughes, an East Texas Republican who wrote Senate Bill 3, denied that the law requires teachers to provide opposing views on what he called matters of “good and evil” or to get rid of books that offer only one perspective on the Holocaust.

“That’s not what the bill says,” Hughes said in an interview Wednesday when asked about the Carroll book guidelines. “I’m glad we can have this discussion to help elucidate what the bill says, because that’s not what the bill says.”

Denial of The Holocaust, (or the severity of it), has long been seen as a hallmark of white supremacists, and is considered a form of antisemitism.

Laundrie Lawyer Goes on the Offensive After TV Host Implicates Parents

Someone’s getting testy…

Published

on

The story of Gabby Petito’s death has captured the attention of the nation in recent weeks, largely due to the strange circumstances surrounding her disappearance, her fiancé’s unwillingness to cooperate with police, his parents’ bizarre behavior, and then, of course the fact that he went missing just hours before Petito’s body was found.

None of these things have screamed innocence in the eyes of the Americans who’ve been following along at home, and Laundrie’s disappearance has allowed speculation to run rampant.

This is true not only for the Joe Anybody, but for television detectives as well, and this hasn’t sat well with a lawyer for the Laundrie family.

Brian Laundrie’s attorney Steve Bertolino tore into “America’s Most Wanted” creator John Walsh Thursday, the morning after the longtime TV host aired an ID channel special on the unsolved homicide of the Florida man’s former fiancée, Gabby Petito.

“Gabby Petito: ID Special Report” delved into the details surrounding the 22-year-old Petito’s slaying and Laundrie’s status as a fugitive on a federal bank fraud warrant.

Walsh has long suggested that Brian may have made a run for the border, or be hiding out on the Appalachian Trail – a place that he was once familiar with.

This is where Bertolino got testy.

“I absolutely believe that his family is helping him stay on the run,” said Walsh, who also hosts “In Pursuit with John Walsh” on ID.

Bertolino snapped back at such speculation.

“Dusty relics like that Dog and John Walsh need a tragic situation like this so they can clear the cobwebs off their names and give their publicity-hungry egos some food,” Bertolino told Fox News Digital, also taking aim at Duane “Dog” Chapman, the reality TV star and real-life bounty hunter who entered the search for Laundrie late last month.

Police have returned to the vast wilderness of the Carlton Reserve in their search for Laundrie, this time bringing K-9 units trained to detect human decomposition.
