Drone Attack: Saudi Oil Facilities Set Ablaze, Iran Blamed — Here’s The 411

H/T Clash Daily.

Now we understand why President Trump has been pushing so hard to make us energy independent.

We need to get to the point we can tell the Saudi’s to drink their oil.

On Saturday, a critical link in Saudi Oil shipping and processing was targeted in a drone strike that could take geopolitics in a whole new direction.

Houthi rebels in Yemen tried to claim credit for the drone strike, but evidence points to another player… Iran.

This is just the sort of situation where having (or wanting for) energy independence REALLY matters. It’s fortunate that independence is something we’ve achieved since the last election, eh? We just might need it.

Not just us, either. It might be our reserves that keep the supply drops and world prices from wreaking havoc in the global economy.

The Trump administration is prepared to tap U.S. emergency oil reserves if necessary after drone attacks shut oil output in Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest crude exporter, a Department of Energy spokeswoman said.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry “stands ready to deploy resources from the Strategic Petroleum Oil Reserves if necessary to offset any disruptions to oil markets as a result of this act of aggression,” spokeswoman Shaylyn Hynes said.

…Perry directed department leaders to work with the Paris-based International Energy Agency (IEA) “on potential available options for collective global action if needed,” Hynes said.

The IEA said on Twitter earlier in the day that it was in contact with Saudi authorities and other major oil-producing nations, and that markets for now are well-supplied.

Here is a description of the attack itself:

Explosions and towering fireballs struck the heart of Saudi Arabia’s oil empire on Saturday in an apparent wave of drone attacks claimed by Yemen’s Houthi rebels. The blows knocked out more than half the kingdom’s oil output for days or more and threatened to drive up already high tensions between Iran and its foes in the Persian Gulf.

The predawn blasts on facilities of the state-run oil giant Aramco — which the rebel group claimed were carried out by a fleet of 10 drones — marked one of the most devastating strikes into Saudi territory claimed by the Iranian-allied Houthis in more than four years of war in Yemen.

…An Aramco statement said production of 5.7 million barrels of crude was suspended by the attack from “projectiles.” That represents more than half of the kingdom’s output and about 6 percent of global oil supply — a shortfall that could send oil prices sharply higher.

BREAKING: Omar Caught Red Handed, In Felony Lying To The IRS

H/T Right Wing Tribune.

The question is will anything be done about it?

I will say I doubt it happening as she is a DemocRat.

Opinion| Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota reportedly continually “violated state rules when she used campaign funds to pay for personal out-of-state travel as well as help on her tax returns and must reimburse her former campaign committee nearly $3,500, Minnesota campaign finance officials ruled Thursday,” according to Fox News.

Fox reports, “The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board said the first-term congresswoman also must pay the state a $500 civil penalty for using campaign money to travel to Florida, where she accepted an honorarium.”

“Rep. Omar must personally reimburse the Omar committee $3,469.23,” the report explains. “This reimbursement payment is the total amount of campaign funds that were used for purposes not permitted by statute in 2016 and 2017. Rep. Omar must provide documentation within 30 days from the date of this order showing the deposit of the reimbursement into the Omar committee’s account.”

On top of that, conservative commentators didn’t waste time in reminding that the Board’s report had shown that Ilhan Omar and her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, “filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015, when Omar was reportedly married to another man. Omar engaged in a civil marriage with Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, and the couple separated in 2011 without formally petitioning for divorce until 2017,” according to Fox.

“A sitting congresswoman may have filed EIGHT YEARS of fraudulent, felonious, tax returns,” writer David Steinberg, who wrote a Twitter thread regarding the issue, stated.

Before she married Elmi, Omar had been married Hirsi in the Muslim “faith tradition.” Fox reports that “the couple separated shortly afterwards. Omar did not officially marry Hirsi until 2018, after reconciling with him and splitting with Elmi.

The report says, “The crisis committee had Frederick & Rosen prepare releases for Rep. Omar and Mr. Hirsi to sign in order for Frederick & Rosen to obtain Rep. Omar’s and Mr. Hirsi’s filed joint tax returns for 2014 and 2015. Frederick & Rosen then reviewed the documents obtained from the Internal Revenue Service on behalf of the Omar committee. However, there is no substantive evidence in the record to show that the services benefitted the Omar committee, and the Omar committee has failed to prove, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the services from Frederick & Rosen were a permitted noncampaign disbursement under Minnesota Statutes section 211B.12. Rep. Omar must reimburse the committee the $1,500 that was paid to the Kjellberg Law Firm for the services from Frederick & Rosen, Ltd.”

Update:

The @StarTribune ignored the bombshell.

Also:

If you think “joint tax returns” is in the report so media might notice — your thought is warranted.

Fox explains of the report:

That reference to Omar and Hirsi’s joint filing, however, was not investigated or addressed further in the report.

The board found that Omar’s campaign bought her a plane ticket to Boston, where she spoke at a political rally; paid for a hotel in Washington, D.C., where Omar participated in an interview for the United Nations Foundation’s Girl UP conference; and covered her travel to Chicago to accept an award and attend a fundraising luncheon.

Under Minnesota law, campaign trips must be related to serving in office. Omar was a state representative from Minneapolis at the time of the violations. She was elected to the U.S. House last November.

Republican state Rep. Steve Drazkowski initially raised the complaints against Omar, suggesting that she used $2,250 in campaign funds to pay a lawyer for her divorce proceedings. Omar has said those payments to her attorney were campaign-related fees.

The board found the payment was actually reimbursement to two other law firms for work related to immigration and tax documents. The board also determined that $1,500 spent to correct an issue on Omar’s tax return was not a campaign-related expense and must be returned.

According to the board, evidence indicates that the $2,250 was not payment for Omar’s marital dissolution. The board directed Omar to file an amended report with more information about the law firm payments.

Omar had called the claims politically motivated. In a statement, her congressional campaign said she is “glad this process is complete” and that she intends to comply with the board’s findings.

The Minnesota representative also stated, “We have been collaborative in this process and are glad the report showed that none of the money was used for personal use, as was initially alleged.”

 

El Paso Survivor Invited To White House Arrested By Secret Service

H/T Flag And Cross.

It seems that Chris Grant is a lying conman.

This guy’s a real piece of work.

One of the survivors of the horrific El Paso massacre who was invited to visit the White House by President Trump, ended up getting arrested by Secret Service.

Turns out the guy, 50-year-old Chris Grant is a liar and a fraud.

via TheBlaze:

Latest: Cam Newton Shows He’s A Class Act By Wearing Tribute To 9/11 First Responders Before Thursday Night Game

One of the invitees was 50-year-old Chris Grant. In addition to being shot during the attack, Grant claimed to have thrown things, including bottles, at the attacker. Trump also praised Grant, asking his family to thank him on behalf of the country.

A GoFundMe for Grant has raised nearly $17,000.

But police say that this heroism never happened.

“Nobody bothered to check with us,” El Paso police spokesman Sgt. Enrique Carrillo told the Washington Examiner. “They would have been informed, as I am telling you now, that our detectives reviewed hours of video and his actions did not match his account.”

It turns out that Grant had numerous active warrants for his arrest, which is why the Secret Service arrested him at the White House.

According to reports, Grant actually pleaded guilty earlier this year to stealing a vehicle. Back in 2016, he pleaded guilty to stealing TVs and avoiding arrest. Back in March he was sentenced to eight months in prison.

In this day and age, nothing should surprise us anymore, yet, for some reason, it always does, doesn’t it? So many nutty folks out in the world.

Hopefully, this fellow gets his life straightened out and gets on the right path.

Doctor Warns California That They’re Quickly Becoming Ground Zero For The Next Plague

H/T Lead Patriot.

This is what happens when DemocRats run a state.

It’s no secret that California is one of the filthiest places on the planet. They already face a slew of third-world type issues and now could resurrect an ancient plague.

All because their Democratic leadership have run the state’s economy into the ground and left the state even more vulnerable with lax immigration policies.

Dr. Marc Siegel, of New York University’s Langone Health, writing in The Hill, notes that the CDC reports that between 100 and 200 new cases of leprosy are annually reported in the U.S. He adds that a USC study found that of the 187 leprosy patients treated at its clinic between 1973 to 2018, most came from Mexico, where leprosy is more common. Siegel points out, “Leprosy is still more prevalent in Central America and South America, with more than 20,000 new cases per year. Given that, there is certainly the possibility of sporadic cases of leprosy continuing to be brought across our southern border undetected.”

Then Siegel addresses Los Angeles:

“And it seems only a matter of time before leprosy could take hold among the homeless population in an area such as Los Angeles County, with close to 60,000 homeless people and 75 percent of those lacking even temporary shelter or adequate hygiene and medical treatment. All of those factors make a perfect cauldron for a contagious disease that is transmitted by nasal droplets and respiratory secretions with close repeated contact.”

Previously Dr. Drew Pinsky warned about the health effects of the homelessness epidemic in Los Angeles in an interview with FNC’s Laura Ingraham. Pinsky, a board-certified internist, called the L.A. city government “disgustingly negligent” and said they are not addressing the issue correctly.

The government believes housing is the problem but Pinsky said there are a rampant mental illness and drug addiction among the homeless and they aren’t interested in housing.

DR. DREW PINSKY: We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now. We have the three prongs of airborne diseases, tuberculous is exploding, rodent fleas. We are one of the only major cities in the country that does not have a rodent control program. Sanitation has broken down. We had a typhus outbreak last year, we will have typhus this summer. I’m hearing from experts that bubonic plague is likely, it’s already here, it will get onto the rat fleas. And then now finally we have this oral-fecal route contamination which is tyhpoid fever. Three cases. One confirmed, probably three. This is unbelievable.

I can’t believe I live in a city where — this is not third-world, this is Medieval. Third-world countries are insulted if they are accused of being like this. No city on earth tolerates on this. The entire population is at risk. And God forbid is measles. This is a population that’s suboptimally immunized. If measles gets in, I just have an image of myself on my knees in the gutter tending to people.

San Francisco is one of the worsts, the Guardian notes that it’s an empirical fact: San Francisco is a crappier place to live these days. Sightings of human feces on the sidewalks are now a regular occurrence; over the past 10 years, complaints about human waste have increased by 400%.

People now call the city 65 times a day to report poop, and there have been 14,597 calls in 2018 alone. Last year, software engineer Jenn Wong even created a poop map of San Francisco, showing the concentration of incidents across the city. New mayor London Breed said: “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here.” In a revolting recent incident, a 20lb bag of fecal waste showed up on a street in the city’s Tenderloin district.

Hollywood Star Scorches Fellow Actors For Shunning Trump Supporters: ” You D*mn Hypocrites”

H/T Lead Patriot.   

Kirsty Alley is spot on with her thoughts and observations about the Hollyweird loons.         

The Hollyweird push to ‘blacklist’ conservative actors has finally met some inside resistance as the real ‘American sweetheart’ Kirsty Alley puts her fellow actors on blast.

“I refuse to be part of the Hollywood a**hats who can’t see that ‘NOT working with Republicans’ is as stupid and NASTY as ‘REFUSING to do business with gay people’..STOP ACTING above the FRAY ya d**n hypocrites…WE are the same species! let’s help each OTHER ya d**n yahoos,” Alley wrote on Twitter.

The Blaze points out that Alley’s blunt message comes after Debra Messing and Eric McCormack — stars of the sitcom “Will & Grace” — advocated for the outing and blacklisting of Hollywood conservatives who attend a Beverly Hills fundraiser for President Donald Trump later this month.

McCormack requested the Hollywood Reporter to “kindly report on everyone attending this event, so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with.”

Meanwhile, Messing urged the Hollywood Reporter to “print a list of all attendees please,” claiming “the public has a right to know.”

In response, the duo was accused of hypocrisy, “actual fascism,” and “McCarthyism.”

Ally goes on to promote Dave Chepelles hilarious but truthful new Netflix stand up but adds no disclaimer to those easily butt-hurt:

“Do yourself a favor this weekend.. See Dave Chappell’s new Netflix show.. think it’s called Sticks and Stones .. whatever it’s called it’s SO wrong that you will be in pain laughing…if u are PC crazy, skip it .. otherwise let er RIP ya yahoos!”

Kirstie then tells her fellow actors to stop being sheep afraid to stand out. Something Chapelle joked about in his stand up was that anyone who disagrees with the left has their career swept out from under them:

Trump Erupts at Mainstream Media After WaPo Hit Piece: ‘They Are Now Beyond Fake, They Are Corrupt’

H/T Western Journal.

The drive-by media goes nuts because President Trump does not roll over and play dead when they attack him he punches back.

As an in-kind donation to the Democratic Party, it was a doozy.

The Washington Post, a once-proud journalistic institution that has followed the rest of the American media into the gutter of partisan politics, decided to celebrate the unofficial end of summer this weekend with a long and remorselessly negative postmortem of how President Donald Trump spent the past three months.

And Trump spent at least part of his Labor Day holiday firing right back.

The impetus for the president’s ire couldn’t be called a “news” story by any reasonable person. Nor was it an “analysis” in the sense that it approached a topic and weighed both sides before pronouncing judgment.

The article was a screed, a campaign volley as loaded and as disingenuous as any 30-second television spot at the height of an election season — and Trump’s response actually treated it with more respect than it deserved.

The focus of Trump’s initial tweet was the story’s reference to his supposedly “racist attacks” on the four freshman Democrats collectively known as “the Squad”: Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

The Amazon Washington Post did a story that I brought racist attacks against the “Squad.” No, they brought racist attacks against our Nation. All I do is call them out for the horrible things they have said. The Democrats have become the Party of the Squad!

It’s one of the more curious aspects of the Trump years that the mainstream media has no problem labeling presidential words as “racist” with no reason other than the fact that his particular political opponents happen to be minorities.

The reality is, the fact that the four radical faces of the new Democratic Party all happen to be women “of color,” as the saying goes today, isn’t the point of the president’s attacks, and it’s a good chance even The Post knows that.

But the point of The Post’s piece — like The New York Times’ coverage of Trump’s speech after the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that started the month of August – was not to convey information.

It was to coddle the biased beliefs of The Post’s overwhelmingly liberal readership.

What else is there to make of headline like this?

“Trump’s lost summer: Aides claim victory, but others see incompetence and intolerance.”

The writing of the article itself was just as slanted:

“The two months between Independence Day and Labor Day offered a fresh and vivid portrait of the president as seen by Trump’s critics — incompetent, indecisive, intolerant and ineffective.”

It’s appalling, really. But at least it’s clear.

One of the many benefits of the Trump years is that the mainstream media outlets have felt comfortable enough to lower their mask of “objectivity.” No thinking American believes the media is giving anything like a fair picture of the presidency.

And that’s what made Trump’s responses Monday so effective.

“The LameStream Media has gone totally CRAZY! They write whatever they want, seldom have sources (even though they say they do), never do ‘fact checking’ anymore, and are only looking for the ‘kill,’” he tweeted. “They take good news and make it bad. They are now beyond Fake, they are Corrupt.”

That last part sums it up in a nutshell.

The president’s biggest opposition at the moment really isn’t the Democratic Party, which is in the middle of a fratricidal power struggle that’s likely to continue long past the time a nominee is named to run against Trump.

His biggest opposition is a news media — and an overall entertainment and cultural hierarchy — that has refused to accept his presidency since even before it began.

The good news for Trump and his supporters is that the news media has long since lost its power to convince Americans of the truth of its reports. Average Americans don’t trust the news media any more than the media trusts average Americans. That’s not a healthy relationship in a democratic society, but it’s the one the media created — has insisted on creating.

What The Washington Post story did was give all Americans a sharp reminder — in stark relief — of just what lengths Trump’s opponents in the media will go to attack him.

And by providing that reminder, they’ve blunted the power of the attacks themselves.

As in-kind donations go, The Post’s broadside was a doozy of a gift to the Democratic Party.

But as Trump’s response showed, it’s the kind of gift that could backfire very, very badly.

April Ryan Claims Trump Is Racist For Wanting To Nuke Hurricanes

H/T The Lid.

How did April Ryan come up with such a stupid lie as President Trump wanted to nuke hurricanes?

If April Ryans brain was dynamite it would not produce enough energy to move a grain of sand.

Putting aside the fact President Trump never said he wanted to nuke hurricanes, White House correspondent, and Washington, D.C., bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks and political analyst for CNN, April Ryan never misses an opportunity to make a crazy claim something is racist. And if she can pin it on President Trump it’s even better. Her latest drift away from reality is her suggestion that President Trump’s alleged plan to nuke hurricanes is racist. No seriously, she said that.

Axios published a report this weekend indicating that the President “suggested multiple times to senior Homeland Security and national security officials that they explore using nuclear bombs to stop hurricanes from hitting the United States.”

“They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane, and it disrupts it,” Axis reported the President said. “Why can’t we do that?”

Some have suggested he was joking, while others noted such brainstorming ideas have been brought up in past administrations. Trump responded by attacking the report as “ridiculous” and more “fake news.”

During a segment on New Day earlier this week, the panel of political pundits mostly joked around about the story, even suggesting Trump may have gotten the idea from ‘Sharknado.’

April Ryan must have been consternated after she couldn’t blast the President for wanting to stop the hurricanes, after all, they are white:

But leave it to crazy April Ryan, she always finds a way to label Trump by using her lunatic version of the race card.

After noting President Trump mentioned that hurricanes generate off the coast of Africa, Ryan also reminded viewers that he had once called some countries there by a vulgar name.

“He’s called Africa a s***hole nation,” Ryan lamented. Well April, unlike you Trump knows the difference between countries and continents. the president said some of the countries inside Africa were sh***hole countries. It like saying some of the channels on cable are sh***hole networks, like the one you work for–which doesn’t mean all the channels on cable are sh***hole networks.

“What part of Africa are you talking about?” Ryan continued. “Sub-Saharan Africa, where there are mostly black people? This is just crazy. There is a ripple effect that could happen for land, sea, for people, if he did something like this.”

Yep April, how did you guess?  The President wants to nuke hurricanes as they move away from Africa just to create giant waves that would hit the African coast and only hurt dark-skinned people.

That’s an example of something you should say out loud in a mirror first to realize just how idiotic it is before you go on national television and embarrass yourself.

Perhaps this is why former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders perpetually used Ryan as an intellectual punching bag during her tenure there, ripping her as a journalist who “is not taken seriously.”

 

The President, for his part, has also eviscerated Ryan in the past.

“It’s the same thing with April Ryan,” he said when discussing possibly revoking press credentials last November.

“You talk about somebody who’s a loser,” Trump added. “She doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing. She gets publicity, and then she gets a pay raise, or she gets a contract with, I think, CNN. But she’s very nasty, and she shouldn’t be.”

Is it any wonder he’s frustrated with the mainstream media after this latest attempt to paint him as a racist?

But we are talking about crazy April Ryan. She has gotten so bad that Ryan now seems like someone doing a lousy parody version of April Ryan.  I am sure she believes that the field of astronomy is racist when they study black holes, shoppers are racist when they go to the stores the day after Thanksgiving, and when she saw Monty Python and the Holy Grail she thought the scene with the Black Knight was racist. She just hasn’t said anything because Ryan hasn’t figured a way to tie it to President Trump.
