IS THIS THE COLDEST NEW YEAR’S EVE EVER? IT MAY GO DOWN AS THE SECOND CHILLIEST IN NEW YORK CITY HISTORY

12_31_17_NYE

This New Year’s Eve may be shaping up to be the coldest in memory in some places in the U.S., but as you’re bundling up to ring in 2018, try to take comfort in the fact that this will unlikely be the chilliest in history.

In New York City where the famous ball drops at Times Square, the temperature on Sunday night is expected to dip as low as 10 degrees and feel like 4 degrees below zero factoring in wind chill, the National Weather Service forecasted in the morning. It’s been colder only once in the past.

A century ago, in 1917, New York City experienced its coldest New Year’s Eve on record, when the temperature at midnight fell to 1 degree, according to the weather service. Second place goes to 1962 at 11 degrees, and 1976 and 1996 tied for third place at 15 degrees.

 

Could this be the coldest midnight temperature on NYE in #NYC since 1962? Sure looks like it could be! We are currently forecasting a temperature of 10° with a wind chill temperature of -4° at midnight tonight in Central Park. pic.twitter.com/GGTONb7bq6

So if the mercury drops as predicted this year, this would be the second coldest New Year’s Eve in the Big Apple.

“Those venturing to Times Square for New Year’s Eve will need to bundle up and dress in layers,” AccuWeather meteorologist Ryan Adamson told lohud.com.

A mass of arctic air from Canada is affecting other parts of the northeast as well. Single-digit temperatures are also forecast on Sunday evening for Boston, which canceled a free ice skating show.

Maine Governor Paul LePage declared a state of emergency allowing heating oil truck drivers to operate beyond the limit of hours enforced by federal transportation officials.

In Memphis, a spot that puts on a music-infused countdown show with a larger-than-life guitar will be far colder than usual, at 15 degrees

Forecasters warn that it’s going to be 20 to 40 degrees cooler than normal on New Year’s Even from New England to Texas.

Keeping as much skin covered as possible is the best way to protect against frostbite, which can occur in half an hour, the weather service says.

Chelsea Handler Immediately Says Texas Church Shooting Happened Because Of ‘Republicans’q

Chelsea Handler immediately responded to news about the Texas church shooting by saying that it happened because of ‘republicans.’
Sutherland Springs Texas – An estimated 27 people have been murdered with 30 more wounded at a church shooting in Sutherland Springs.

Within hours of the shooting, Chelsea Handler took to Twitter to say that the shooting happened because of “republicans.”

On Twitter she wrote, “Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot in killed. What country? America. Why? Republicans.”

The post was made before any details about the suspect were released and while the bodies of the victims were still warm.

What we know now is that the gunman who opened fire in a Texas church on Sunday is dead following a pursuit by police, according to Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office.

No official word has been released if the gunman was killed by police or he killed himself.

KGW is reporting that the police killed the suspect, but their source isn’t clear at this time.

CNN reports that 27 people were murdered, including children, after the shooter entered First Baptist Church on Sunday and opened fire at around 11:30 am. An estimated 30 additional people have been wounded.

The First Baptist Church records their services and it’s likely that the shooting was captured on video.

“My heart is broken,” Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr. told CNN. “We never think where it can happen, and it does happen. It doesn’t matter where you’re at. In a small community, real quiet and everything, and look at this, what can happen.”

Do you think that there’s any excuse for Chelsea Handler’s comment? We’d like to hear what you think. Please let us know in the comments.

‘Small Arsenal of Guns’ Found in Top-Floor Texas Hotel Room Hours Before New Year’s Celebration, Say Police

HOUSTON, Texas — Houston police found a “small arsenal” of guns in a top-floor hotel room just hours before a scheduled New Year’s Eve celebration. The hotel is an open-atrium design that could allow a shooter to fire upon the celebrating crowd.

Just hours before a massive New Year’s Eve celebration at the Houston Hyatt Regency Hotel, an off-duty Houston police officer working security for the hotel encountered an allegedly intoxicated man who acted “erratically and belligerent,” KTRK ABC13 reported.

After having difficulty subduing the man, the officer called for “urgent backup.” The call went out at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

Responding officers found “a small arsenal of guns” in his top-floor hotel room, Click2Houston reported. The officers called investigators to the scene.

The detectives discovered more weapons in his vehicle.

The Hyatt Regency, located in downtown Houston, is a traditional New Year’s Eve hotspot for the Bayou City. The open-atrium hotel is staged to drop more than 5,000 ballons on partiers as the clock strikes midnight — signaling the arrival of 2018.

The open-atrium design of the hotel could allow the man a sniper-like position from the hallway of the top floor.

Police arrested the man on charges of unlawfully carrying a weapon and trespassing, KHOU CBS11 reported.

The suspect allegedly had ammunition in his room in addition to several firearms.

Hours later, a tow truck could be seen removing a white Chevrolet pickup truck from the hotel’s garage.

After Racist Black Girl Was Offended By Cotton, ‘Old White Dude’ Shuts Her Up With 1 Photo

The latest inanimate object those on the left have taken to being offended over is decorative cotton. After one racist black girl became offended over Hobby Lobby selling the item, an “old white dude” decided to give her some perspective. He shut her up by posting an old photo on Facebook, where it quickly went viral.

By now, you have probably seen the Facebook post by Danielle Rider imploring Hobby Lobby to remove decorative cotton from their shelves because, as she sees it, the home decor is “racist.” Additionally, you may have heard that a group of black college students was offended when Lipscomb Universtiy put them up in a house with cotton decorations.
A university president in Tennessee apologized Friday for hosting black students in his home, which displayed a cotton decoration.
Randy Lowry, president of Lipscomb University, apologized for showing centerpieces bearing cotton stalks while hosting black students at his home in an email sent to the school Friday and posted on Facebook.
“The content of the centerpieces was offensive, and I could have handled the situation with more sensitivity,” said Lowry. “I sincerely apologize for the discomfort, anger or disappointment we caused and solicit your forgiveness.”
The president reported that multiple students confided in him about the cotton decoration displayed during a Thursday dinner he hosted at his home for black students to share their experiences at Lipscomb with him. [Source: Daily Caller]

 

Having seen enough of this utter nonsense, Facebook user Frank Jones, a self-proclaimed “old white dude,” decided to post a family photo on social media, where it has since gone viral. According to Western Journalism, the picture showed a white family picking cotton in the southern United States.

“This is for all those black college kids who were so offended by the cotton centerpiece. My guess is not a single one has ever been in a cotton field,” Jones captioned the photo. “Well folks this is what it looks like to crop cotton. Grew up doing this. Started picking cotton at age 6. Worked our farm and worked for neighbors farms. Did I mention some were black? Didn’t matter when you had to get the crop in. All by hand so we helped each other. Black and white we worked together, ate together and shared the same water jug,” he added.Jones’ post, which is no longer viewable to the public, immediately went viral, garnering over 45,000 shares. “Yes I am white. Yes I am a proud son of the South. Yes I grew up eating what those college kids called ‘black food’ as if they even knew ‘soul food’ is what everyone in the South ate,” he added. “Tonight I’m having pork butts, mustard greens, black eye peas and cornbread. So how about shut the hell up and grow up.”

Overwhelmed by the response his post received, Jones defended his logic, saying, “Couple of folks think I was off base with that post but most understood my intent. No black person I grew up working with ever mentioned anything about cotton reminding them of slavery. And yes, we talked about the Civil War and about the then policy of segregation.” He added, “It was the segregated South but not in the cotton fields or the one general store we had or in our conversations. We all had [hoped] it would change one day.”

Indeed, Frank Jones’ family photo is a perfect visual representation of everything that is wrong with the “cotton is racist” argument. Just as many whites as blacks in America worked the fields picking cotton. Heck, often times they worked together, as Jones noted. It’s time for the SJWs to get a freakin’ grip.

Muslim Diplomat Tried Saying U.S. Was ‘Bullying’, So Nikki Haley Flipped The Script With Brutal Response

Nikki Haley proved in front of the UN why she is the perfect fit as America’s UN Ambassador. President Trump’s decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognize the city as Israel’s capital was met with a foul response by many members of the UN. In fact, 128 countries voted to reject Trump’s decision.

Nikki Haley issued a brilliant response against those that voted against the U.S. and Israel’s interest, implying a possible defunding for those countries.

This prompted one Muslim diplomat to accuse the U.S. of bullying:

“States resort to such blatant bullying only when they know they do not have a moral or legal argument to convince others.”

Haley’s response?

 

Haley is absolutely right. The U.S. is taken way for granted. How much so? Here’s a startling fact: from 2016 to 2018, the U.S. has and will pay a total of 22% of the UN’s total budget. That means we pay for nearly a quarter of the UN’s fees despite there being a total of 193 countries taking part.

How much do some of these other country’s pay? For comparison, the next highest paying country is Japan, which pays only around 9%. Here’s the biggest shocker: 135 of the countries contribute less than 0.1%.

This also doesn’t take into consideration the fact that the U.S. also gives millions in aid to many of the countries part of the UN.

As Haley says, the U.S. is tired of being taken advantage of. Perhaps it’s time we scale back and save ourselves the money and let these countries fare on their own without our generous monetary aid.

Haley’s remarks echo the sentiment that many Americans are feeling. We no longer want to be paying exorbitant sums to countries that aren’t going to return the generosity in kind.

Is it time America starts putting itself first?

Heroic 9-Year-Old Boy Thinks Fast, Grabs Very “Special” Weapon When Confronted By Carjacker

By all reasoned accounts, 9-year old Larry Larimore is a hero for stopping a would-be thief from stealing his dad’s pickup truck on Christmas Day, by pulling out a pellet gun and confronting the thief as he opened the trucks door.

“As soon as he opened the door, I got scared,” Larimore told WTHR. “So I pulled out the pellet gun and pointed it at his head.”

The suspect looking down the muzzle of what appeared to be a real pistol took off and hopped inside a Chevy Trailblazer parked nearby, and sped off.

However if this incident had taken place in a progressive state like New Jersey, New York or perhaps Connecticut, rather then in a gun friendly state like Kokomo, Indiana, this 9-year old boy would most likely be sitting in a juvenile court and his parents cited and perhaps even arrested for having a “pellet gun” in their possession, that’s how screwed up we’ve become as a society.

Thankfully, however, this incident took place in the heartland where common sense still prevails, and where law-abiding citizens like 9-year old Larimore can defend himself.

The incident began when Larimore’s dad Kevin Cooksey stopped at a One Stop store to get a bottle of ibuprofen for his wife, along with another motorist named Kyle Sparling looking to buy a bag of Doritos, both individuals were strangers to each other, however all that quickly changed within moments when the two motorists realized that their vehicles were in the process of being stolen.

“When I saw my truck door open, I was like, ‘oh my God, what am I going to tell my wife?’” said Cooksey. Because his 9-year old son was in the truck, worst yet, with the engine running.

“I was thinking, I hope my son knew what to do in that situation,” said Cooksey, and apparently young Larimore knew exactly what to do.

Unable to steal the pickup truck the would-be carjacker hopped into the Chevy Trailblazer, attempting to escape, however he was quickly apprehended after a minor accident just down the road from the One Stop store, he was charged with attempted auto theft, unlawful entry of a vehicle, vehicle theft, theft and operator never licensed.

Check out the interview with this amazing young man:

Do you believe we need a universal gun law, that protects and empowers law-abiding citizens to protect themselves with handguns?

Minnesota Mom Has Refugee Boyfriend Watch Baby, Returns To Find How He ‘Took Care’ Of Boy

A Minnesota mother left her 2-year-old boy in the care of her boyfriend, never suspecting that anything would go wrong. However, when she returned, she discovered a horrific scene that can only be described as every parent’s worst nightmare.

When Minnesota resident Ashley King began dating Quran Jabari Mitchell, she had no idea that his religious foundation would ultimately result in the most devastating consequence. Trusting him with her most precious contribution to this world, she left her 2-year-old son, Joshua Isaiah Lockhart Jr., in Quran’s care. What she returned to find was one of Islam’s many devastating contributions to the world.

The Star Tribune reports that 22-year-old Quran was arrested and charged with the gruesome murder of the toddler left in his care after subjecting the innocent boy to 2 months of abhorrent physical abuse. The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office confirmed that the child succumbed to his horrific injuries at the Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis after Quran delivered “blunt force injuries” in his Crystal home.

Joshua tragically died from severe head wounds and other injuries while in the sole care of Quran just 9 days after his second birthday. An autopsy confirmed that the child sustained fatal head injuries, eye injuries, and substantial bruising on his left arm, shoulder, forehead, cheek, and ear. Quran reportedly beat Joshua to death in an apartment he was renting but had subjected the boy to at least 2 months of unimaginable torture.

Fortunately, Quran was sentenced on December 28 to 40 years in prison, despite entering a plea deal, according to KSTP. Quran pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in exchange for his initial first-degree murder count reduction last month. Additionally, he admitted to exploiting the boy’s vulnerability, abusing a position of authority, invasion of a child’s safety, and particularly cruel murder. As such, his sentence was raised from the typical 14 years to 4 decades.

Quran attempted to convince the police that while he did occasionally physically abuse Joshua, he would hit him with a flip-flop “no more than five times” and was certain that he didn’t hit the toddler too hard. He admitted to beating Joshua since the child mother moved in with him 2 months earlier.

Disturbingly, less than a month before Joshua’s death, Quran had been sentenced to 90 days for a misdemeanor domestic assault conviction. However, the incarceration that would’ve saved young Joshua’s life was postponed by Hennepin County Judge Bruce Peterson.

Although apologists deny it, Islam advocates not only for the beating of disobedient women but children as well. In fact, the prophet Muhammad promoted physical abuse as a mean of indoctrinating children with the Quran.

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Hang your whip where the members of the household can see it, for that will discipline them.”

Abu Dawood (459) and Ahmad (6650) narrated from ‘Amr ibn Shu’ayb from his father that his grandfather said: The Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) said: “Teach your children to pray when they are seven years old, and smack them if they do not pray when they are 10 years old, and separate them in their beds.”

Physical abuse is widely regarded as necessary and acceptable throughout the Muslim world, which is why Islamic scholars also agree with Muhammad’s teaching.

Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq has said: “If needed, don’t inflict more than five or six blows to your child or the servant and these blows should not be too severe.”

I’laam al-Muwaqqi’een (2/23): “It should be known from the father’s behaviour with his children and his disciplining of them that he does not smack anybody whom he smacks except in obedience to Allaah and to his Messenger (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him), and that the only reason he does that is the child’s best interests, and his keenness to raise him in the prescribed manner, so that the child will not .grow up hating Islamic teachings which he may find difficult, and that he was smacked for not doing them.”

If the Quran prescribes physical violence, the prophet modeled physical violence, and the Muslim world accepts physical violence as a means of appropriate discipline, why wouldn’t any Muslim refrain from inflicting physical violence upon those under their care? This is the culture and religion we are welcoming into our progressive society.

Chicago Thugs Stab Vet & ‘Search’ His Girlfriend, Find Out It Was BAD Idea

Over the weekend, feral Chicago thugs mugged an Afghan War veteran and his girlfriend, and after “searching” the woman, they stabbed the veteran in the shoulder. However, it didn’t take long for them to realize just how bad of an idea it was.

Neil McCarthy is a British national and certified badass who served in the Afghanistan War, and he was visiting Chicago over the weekend with his girlfriend, 26-year-old Carisa Lerner when they were approached by feral thugs, reported FOX32. Noe Mondragon, 22, Luis Saldago-Camargo, 18, and a third man demanded the couple’s belongings. After the couple gave the thugs everything they had, the two men started to “search” Lerner, which McCarthy wasn’t about to let happen.

Noe Mondragon
“We were kind of hoping that when they came up and said ‘Hey, how’s it going?’ we would just be able to go ‘Good’ and then just carry on,” McCarthy said. “I think of it now, it was a terrible plan and they were always going to rob us, no matter how nice our greetings were.”

One of the attackers held a knife to McCarthy, 27, and demanded that he hand over his belongings. The pair complied, but when one of the men laid his hands on Lerner, McCarthy reacted in an instant.

Luis Saldago-Camargo
“Turning and seeing that guy just on her and I don’t know where those hands have been get them off my girlfriend, that’s what made me take a risk essentially,” said McCarthy.

Although the Royal Air Force badass was able to get the man off of his girlfriend, he was stabbed in the shoulder and punched in the face in the process, but it didn’t stop him. McCarthy then grabbed the knife by its blade and wrestled it away from the thug and threatened all three with it, which is when they showed their true colors and ran off.

Neil McCarthy showing off his stab wound
They were able to get his wallet, passport, and cell phone, but it wouldn’t be the last they saw of McCarthy, who’s currently studying at the University of Minnesota. After getting patched up by medics, McCarthy used the Find My iPhone app to track his phone, and it led him straight to one of the attackers.

“I just sprinted after and just got him and dragged him over to the road here,” McCarthy said.

McCarthy held the thug until police arrived just a short time after and arrested him. Although he found his phone and captured a thug in the process, McCarthy’s passport and wallet are still gone.

As a result of the incident, Mondragon is charged with aggravated battery/use of a deadly weapon and armed robbery, and Salgado-Camargo faces two felony counts of armed robbery, according to Chicago Police.

It’s not often that stories like this have a happy ending, but it’s awesome when they do since everyone loves a good story about vigilante justice. This time around, feral thugs picked the wrong victim, and it cost them dearly. Not only was McCarthy unafraid to counter-attack, but he had the training to be able to do so. However, not everyone does, and the incident could have turned out much differently.

Stories like this are an excellent reminder of why we have the Second Amendment, and it shows that it’s a good idea to buy a gun and get properly trained on how to use it. After all, just like with a fire extinguisher, it’s better to have a gun and never use it, than to need one and never have it.

Illegal Alien Found Guilty Of Murdering Family Of 5 While Committing Robbery So He Could Pay His Rent

“Prosecutors said Luc used a hammer to commit one of the worst mass homicides in modern San Francisco history …”

An illegal immigrant faces life in prison after he was convicted on Monday of murdering a family of five with a hammer in a sanctuary city while committing robbery and burglary.

Vietnamese national Binh Thai Luc, 41, was facing eviction for not paying his rent when he murdered the family in 2012, shortly after he lost money earlier in the evening at a casino.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

The victims’ bludgeoned bodies were found covered in blood and household cleaning products in various rooms of the row house on Howth Street, which had been flooded with water. The damage was so severe and the scene so chaotic that investigators didn’t initially know if they were dealing with a quintuple murder or a murder-suicide.

Prosecutors said Luc used a hammer to commit one of the worst mass homicides in modern San Francisco history, though the weapon was never found.

“This was a very gruesome, brutal murder, and we’re pleased we’re getting some accountability for the family and for the community,” District Attorney George Gascón said.

Luc was supposed to be deported in 2006 when he was released from prison after serving nearly a decade for “robbery and assault with a deadly weapon for the 1996 armed robbery of a Chinese restaurant in San Jose,” the Daily Mail stated.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said that they were never provided with documents from the Vietnamese government needed to process his removal from the U.S., and as a result he was released back into the community in 2006.

Both San Francisco and San Jose (located in Santa Clara County) are sanctuary cities, meaning they do not cooperate with federal immigration authorities to remove illegal aliens from their areas of jurisdiction.

Luc’s conviction has received little attention from the major national news organizations — CNN completely ignored it on their website — and it’s easy to understand why when the case is dissected:

Luc faced eviction for not paying his rent, which shows that he was irresponsible and not one of the “best and brightest” — a term used by Democrats to describe illegal immigrants that are in the United States. Former President Obama used the term “best and brightest” in September 2017 to describe illegal alien DACA recipients that his administration sheltered with legal protections.
Luc murdered five people with a hammer — not an AR-15 — which destroys the Left’s narrative about why semi-automatic weapons need to be banned because a person doesn’t even need a gun to commit mass murder.
Luc committed the murders in sanctuary city San Francisco, where an illegal alien from Mexico was found not guilty in November of the 2015 murder of Kate Steinle, which at the time launched the national debate over sanctuary cities.
Bringing attention to Luc’s conviction would bolster the agenda pushed by President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly called for stronger immigration policies.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Interrupts DOJ Hearing To Ask If FBI Is Investigating Trump Harassment Claims

Trump allegations are now more important, even, than the Russia investigation.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) gave an interesting insight into Democratic strategy against Trump, Wednesday, when she interrupted a hearing on the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election to ask Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein whether he was investigating any sexual harassment allegations made against the president.

Rep. Jackson Lee, like other members of the House Committee, was given five minutes to interrogate Rosenstein over his oversight of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation — an investigation that House Republicans claim is now tainted and riddled with insider bias against the president.

But Jackson Lee had other priorities, the Daily Caller reports.

“What intentions does the Department of Justice have to allow these women, who are accusing the president of sexual misconduct and have never been heard in terms of a public setting…what does the Department of Justice intend to do?” she asked.

Rosenstein appeared somewhat confused about the question, noting that private claims of sexual harassment aren’t necessarily within the purview of the Department of Justice, particularly claims that emerged before the president was in office. The only way the incidents could become federal business, Rosenstein explained, is if the accusers made them federal business.

“If they file a lawsuit, they’re free to do so, it would be a Department matter,” he answered.

Jackson was not satisfied with Rosenstein’s answers, and pressed the Deputy Attorney General on whether the FBI could begin a separate probe into whether Trump sexually harassed several women during his time as a New York real estate investor, when the now-president was a well-known playboy.

Rosenstein tried his best. “If there’s anything that warrants federal investigation then we would certainly look at it,” he answered.

Jackson Lee responded by suggesting that she would refer the women to the Department of Justice, thus suggesting that she would pressure his office into beginning the probe. Rosenstein finally responded by indicating that sexual harassment, as it stands, is not technically a federal crime. And the DOJ is charged with investigating federal crimes.

The interaction may be the surest sign yet that prominent Democrats who once called for Trump’s impeachment over the president’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, have given up hope, at least for the time being, of finding evidence directly connecting Trump to Russian efforts, and thereby exposing the president to a real impeachment hearing.

The sexual harassment allegations appear to be a better bet.
