The announcement, coverage, and consequential bestselling position on Amazon for Breitbart Senior Editor MILO’s upcoming book Dangerous has triggered all the right people– particularly Hollywood’s elitist class.

“The guy has freedom of speech but to fund him & give him a platform tells me a LOT about @simonschuster” proclaimed Silverman on Twitter. “YUCK AND BOO AND GROSS.”

Judd Apatow

Responding to a call for people to boycott Dangerous publisher Simon and Schuster, The 40 Year Old Virgin and Trainwreck director Judd Apatow declared: “I am in! In these times we can not let hatemongers get rich off of their cruelty. Shame on @simonschuster !”

Howard Dean

Former Governor of Vermont Howard Dean attacked Simon and Schuster after learning of MILO’s book deal, citing the libelous claims made by Think Progress that MILO is a “white supremacist.”

“This is an embarrassment for S and S and their owner CBS which is already on record putting their company ahead of the USA” wrote Dean, warranting replies from users hoping for “financial failure,” seemingly unaware that MILO’s book reached number one on Amazon’s bestseller list.

Perez Hilton

Celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton described MILO as a “walking sack of maggots” following the announcement of his book, also opting to file the story under “icky icky poo.”

“Disgusting doesn’t even begin to describe this situation!” proclaimed Hilton in a blog post about MILO’s upcoming book Dangerous, before falsely claiming that MILO sent “racist epithets” to Leslie Jones.

“Yuck, what a disappointing situation” Hilton concluded. “So, will YOU be boycotting the publishing house?”

Commenters were quick to point out that MILO is just the modern day version of Hilton, who used to be a figure of controversy before dying out.

“He is not diferent than you, Perez,” declared one user, while another added, “He’s doing exactly [what] you [did when you] became famous for a decade ago.”

One user also declared, “Milo is the voice of the New Gay Generation,” a dig at Hilton who is gay himself.

Joy Reid

MSNBC correspondent and left-wing author Joy Reid claimed that “We have entered a truly hideous age,” after hearing the announcement of MILO’s book.

Reid, however, is the same person who blindly took Shaun King’s word that his father is black, disregarding and condemning MILO’s investigation into both parents listed on King’s birth certificate being white while live on television, despite not having any evidence to back up King’s claims.

 

On Thursday, Red Alert Politics predicted that MILO’s book would quickly sell more copies than Hillary Clinton’s Stronger Together, which sold less than 3,000 copies in its first week.

“Progressives are uncomfortable that the ideology they reject is becoming more mainstream and a larger segment of American life. They’d be much happier if publishing companies spent money giving liberal politicians and activists big advances for books that nobody reads or buys like Hillary Clinton’s Stronger Together (sold less than 3,000 copies its first week),” wrote Red Alert. “The best liberal freakouts are yet to come, wait until Yiannopoulos sells more copies of Dangerous than Clinton did of Stronger Together.”

Following Red Alert’s prediction, MILO’s book rose quickly through Amazon’s charts, becoming the number one bestselling book on the site just one day after being announced and over two months before its release.

“Milo” became the number one trending topic on Twitter in the U.S. on Thursday, following MILO’s announcement of the book, with its publisher Simon and Schuster reaching the third most trending topic.

Since the announcement of Dangerous by MILO, The Chicago Review of Books have also announced that they would boycott every book from publisher Simon and Schuster in 2017 as a protest against the book being published.

“They said banning me from Twitter would finish me off. Just as I predicted, the opposite has happened,” said MILO in a comment to the Hollywood Reporter about his book. “Did it hurt Madonna being banned from MTV in the 1990s? Did all that negative press hurt Donald Trump’s chances of winning the election?”

“I met with top execs at Simon & Schuster earlier in the year and spent half an hour trying to shock them with lewd jokes and outrageous opinions,” he continued. “I thought they were going to have me escorted from the building — but instead they offered me a wheelbarrow full of money.”

“Every line of attack the forces of political correctness try on me fails pathetically,” MILO concluded. “I’m more powerful, more influential, and more fabulous than ever before and this book is the moment Milo goes mainstream. Social justice warriors should be scared — very scared.”

DANGEROUS is available to pre-order now via Amazon, in hardcover and Kindle editions. And yes, MILO is reading the audiobook version himself!

Portrait of Ronald Reagan Defaced During Break-In at GOP Office in North Carolina



SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

Someone vandalized a portrait of former President Ronald Reagan during a break-in to a county Republican Party headquarters in North Carolina.

The vandal kicked in the door to the Wayne County Republican Party headquarters in Goldsboro and vandalized a portrait of Reagan with a cowboy hat, which was part of a mural that included the North Carolina flag, elephants, and a picture of the World Trade Center burning on 9/11, the News & Observer reported.

Wayne County GOP chairman Brent Heath said the person responsible “scratched out the word ‘Republican’” in the mural and replaced it with a misspelled slur used to describe gay people and also wrote, “(Expletive) Trump and da opps,” a slang term used to describe the police.

“It appears to me that their motive was to get in and deface that mural,” Heath said, noting that nothing else was damaged in the office.

North Carolina GOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse condemned the acts of vandalism in a statement Thursday.

“These are not acts of speech, they are acts of destruction and violence,” Woodhouse said. “Nothing good can possibly come from these events, and they must be condemned. We continue to urge our local offices across the state to be in contact with local law enforcement to assist with protection of NC GOP volunteers and property.”

Several other Republican Party offices in North Carolina have been damaged this year.

Someone defaced the front of the Alamance County GOP headquarters in November, spray painting the words “F*** Trump” and covering the word “Republican” over the office’s sign.

Also, in October, the Orange County GOP headquarters was firebombed, causing major damage to the inside of the building.

Franklin Graham: Donald Trump Won Election by the ‘Hand of God’

http://ift.tt/2hFl7cO

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

Celebrated evangelical Rev. Franklin Graham says that it was the “hand of God,” rather than Russian hackers, that determined the outcome of November’s presidential election.

“I think maybe God has allowed Donald Trump to win this election to protect this nation for the next few years by giving maybe an opportunity to have some good judges,” he said.

The son of renowned Baptist minister Billy Graham, the Rev. Franklin Graham has been invited by President-elect Trump to be one of six clergy to offer the invocation, benediction, and several readings at his swearing-in ceremony on January 20.

In an interview with Religion News Service Thursday, Graham said that beyond mere human factors, the mysterious hand of divine providence was at work in the elections.

“All I know is Donald Trump was supposed to lose the election” according to all the polls, Graham said.

“For these states to go the way they did, in my opinion, I think it was the hand of God,” he said. “It wasn’t hacking. It wasn’t Wiki-leaky or whatever. It was God, in my opinion, and I believe his hand was at work, and I think he’s given Christians an opportunity.”

While never officially endorsing Trump, Rev. Graham has been a sharp critic of the Obama administration and a vocal opponent of Hillary Clinton, especially for her uncompromising support of abortion-on-demand.

Shortly before Election Day, Graham declared that the best choice for president “isn’t difficult to figure out if you are a Christian,” in evident reference to Republican candidate Donald Trump.

“There’s two different pictures and two different visions for America,” Graham said in early November. “The Democratic Party has a vision, Hillary Clinton has a vision, Donald Trump has a totally different vision for this nation with the Republican Party. This isn’t difficult to figure out if you are a Christian.”

The evangelist acknowledged that for many, voting for Trump might not have been easy, but he insisted that it was, nonetheless, the better choice and that Trump was a “changed man.”

“You may have to hold your nose and vote,” Graham said. “I have people that say, ‘Well I don’t like Donald Trump, I don’t like what he says.’ Well I don’t like what he said either, I promise I don’t like it. But those are things that he said 11 years ago, not something that he said today.”

“I think Donald Trump has changed,” Graham added. “I think God is working on his heart and in his life. But people have to make up their own mind.”

In a Facebook post some weeks earlier, Graham had stated that “the difference between the candidates is night and day.”

“Some candidates have entire political ads talking about how they spent their career fighting for the rights of children,” he said. “Yet they spent their entire career fighting against the rights of unborn children!”

Graham said Hillary Clinton’s progressive agenda was “godless” and could not be defended.

Following WikiLeaks revelations, the preacher denounced the “depth of corruption” in Washington politics, calling for its eradication.

“WikiLeaks is giving us a much clearer picture of the depth of the corruption that is thriving in our nation’s capital,” Graham wrote, calling it “a swamp that needs to be drained.”

“Our political system is broken, and it will take strong, tough leadership to begin fixing some of this,” Graham said.

Regarding the inauguration ceremony, Graham says he still has not decided which Scripture passage to read.

“I’m taking time just to pray and ask God to give me wisdom and guidance because it’s a responsibility that I take very seriously,” he said.

‘Trans-Racial’ Rachel Dolezal Disinvited from MLK Event After Backlash

‘Trans-Racial’ Rachel Dolezal Disinvited from MLK Event After Backlash



SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

Rachel Dolezal, a former NAACP leader and professor who received national media attention after it was revealed that she was a white woman posing as African-American, has been disinvited from a speaking event at a Martin Luther King Jr. festival in North Carolina after a community backlash about her scheduled appearance.

Dolezal, who was formerly an adjunct professor at Eastern Washington University, was disinvited from her scheduled appearance at Cary, North Carolina’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Dreamfest in January. She was scheduled to participate in a panel discussion about racial identity and race relations with representatives from the NAACP.

Dolezal is the former president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP, a position that she was forced to resign from after she was accused of portraying herself as African-American despite being born and raised by white parents.

Doug McRainey, Cary’s director of parks, recreation, and cultural resources, claims that the decision to remove Dolezal from the program was made after backlash erupted in the community.

“They made the decision about two weeks ago to remove her from the diversity summit, which we support,” McRainey said. “We had two focus group meetings with citizens and pastors, and I think the feeling was that her presence would take away from the goals of the Dreamfest.”

Cary City Councilman Don Frantz argued that Dolezal’s decision to live her life as a lie diminishes her ability to add an honest perspective to a discussion about racism in America. “I fail to see how somebody who lives a lie adds value to an honest discussion about real racial issues in this country,” he said in October. “I fail to understand the logic behind that decision if the goal is to have an honest discussion about racism in America.”

In Nationwide Crackdown, Italy Announces ‘Zero Tolerance’ for Illegal Aliens

In Nationwide Crackdown, Italy Announces ‘Zero Tolerance’ for Illegal Aliens



SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

In the wake of recent Islamic terror attacks in Berlin and Turkey, Italy’s National Director of Public Safety has announced a clampdown on illegal aliens as well as an increase in deportations.

National police chief Franco Gabrielli has sent a circular letter to the country’s police departments announcing a new “zero tolerance” policy toward illegal immigrants, including intensified checks and controls as well as expulsions of foreigners without residence permits.

In the letter, Gabrielli urges “maximum attention from the different branches of law enforcement to track down foreigners in irregular situations through targeted controls.” The police chief also directs law enforcement officers to “establish immediate contact with immigration officials to expedite deportation procedures” for those found to be in the country illegally.

The circular letter underscores the importance of the crackdown “in the current context of crisis in the face of increasing migratory pressures and an international scenario characterized by instability and threats.” The grave situation imposes on law enforcement a “maximum commitment” to keep the territory “under control,” it reads.

The new hardline policy was announced on New Year’s Eve and follows on a deadly truck attack in Berlin earlier this month, when Tunisian jihadist Anis Amri drove a tractor-trailer through a Christmas market, killing twelve and injuring dozens more. Amri was later shot in a skirmish with Italian police in Milan.

New Year’s Eve is considered a particularly vulnerable time due to the large crowds that gather in towns and cities across Europe. Last year’s celebrations were marked by scores of cases of robbery and sexual assault by migrants in the center of Cologne, Germany, resulting in more than 1,000 criminal charges.

On Friday, Italy’s Minister of the Interior Marco Minniti said that the nation’s terror alert remains high, and assured Italians of a “very high security level” regarding possible terror attacks.

“We are keeping a careful watch on the terror risk, with all the agencies and resources in the field to guarantee the security of the territory,” he said.

“But this should not prevent the citizens of our country from feeling safe and celebrating the festivities in all tranquility,” he said.

In Rome, authorities have announced full deployment of law enforcement as of 7:00pm Saturday, with special attention given to national monuments such as the Roman Coliseum and the Circus Maximus, where large throngs are expected and entertainment will be offered.

EPA Orders Freezing Alaskans To Do Do Dumbest Thing Ever

http://ift.tt/2iBAWxE
epa

Wood burning stoves are ESSENTIAL to survival in the cold weather…In comes the EPA telling alaskans they can’t burn wood to stay warm because of air quality standards…IDIOTIC!

Like most people in Alaska, the residents of those frozen cities are burning wood to keep themselves warm this winter. Smoke from wood-burning stoves increases small-particle pollution, which settles in low-lying areas and can be breathed in. The EPA thinks this is a big problem. Eight years ago, the agency ruled that wide swaths of the most densely populated parts of the region were in “non-attainment” of federal air quality standards.

That prompted state and local authorities to look for ways to cut down on pollution from wood-burning stoves, including the possibility of fining residents who burn wood. After all, a declaration of noncompliance from the EPA would have enormous economic implications for the region, like the loss of federal transportation funding.

The problem with the EPA bullying the people of Fairbanks about their wood stoves is that the federal government thinks this is a problem that can be solved. What would the EPA have Alaskans do, use solar panels to heat their homes in winter?
