‘The Simpsons’ Mocks Trump’s First 100 Days with Spicer Suicide, Ivanka on Supreme Court (Video)



‘The Simpsons’ Mocks Trump’s First 100 Days with Spicer Suicide, Ivanka on Supreme Court (Video)
by Daniel Nussbaum27 Apr 2017
Fox’s animated comedy The Simpsons offered up a decidedly dark view of President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office with a short clip released online this week, the latest in a series of clips from the long-running show that have taken aim at Trump.

The latest video, released Wednesday, sees White House press secretary Sean Spicer having apparently committed suicide in the briefing room, while Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway vows not to replace him.

As Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon wring each other’s necks, President Trump — whose hair is actually a live cat — lies in bed, surrounded by books including “Florida on $10 Million a Day” and “Killing a Good Thing,” by Bill O’Reilly.

“One hundred days in office. So many accomplishments. Lowered my golf handicap. My Twitter feed increased by 700. And finally, we can shoot hibernating bears. My boys will love that,” Trump says in the clip.
When he’s presented with an urgent bill that lowers taxes “only for Republicans,” Trump asks whether Fox News can read the bill and he’ll just watch what they say.

Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump has taken Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court, and her robe with gavel earrings can be had for just 1,000 rubles.

As Homer and Marge watch the spectacle on TV, Marge reaches into her hair and pulls out a bottle of antidepressants.

“This was supposed to last me the whole four years!” she says as she turns over the empty bottle.

But the television-watching is interrupted when Grandpa Simpson is apprehended by agents in the living room; he is being deported, but he can’t remember to where.

The conclusion of the clip informs viewers it was paid for by “Anybody Else 2020.”

The Simpsons has mocked Trump before; one clip featured a parody of Hillary Clinton’s famous “3 A.M.” ad, while another depicted Homer Simpson getting lost in Trump’s hair. In November, the animated series was renewed through what will be a record 30th season.

White House: What Is Happening with Free Speech on Campus Is ‘Appalling’



White House: What Is Happening with Free Speech on Campus Is ‘Appalling’
by Dan Riehl 27 Apr 2017Washington, DC
Cliff Sims, special assistant to President Trump, spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Thursday regarding several topics, including free speech on college campuses, the president’s tax plan, the Obamacare compromise bill, and the administration’s first 100 days.

Asked about recent events like the cancellation of Ann Coulter’s speech and the chilling impact on free speech of ongoing leftist protests at UC Berkeley and elsewhere, Sims said, “Free speech is the lynchpin of democracy here in the United States. As I watch personally what is going on out there, it is appalling.”

“It is a sad state of affairs to the legacy of … a campus that has been a beacon – considered itself a beacon of free speech throughout the years. And it is just disheartening to see that in the United States of America today that more and more free speech only applies to speech that you agree with.”

Gun Control Groups to ‘Spend What It Takes’ to Defeat National Reciprocity



Gun Control Groups to ‘Spend What It Takes’ to Defeat National Reciprocity
by AWR Hawkins 26 Apr 2017
Micheal Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety and Gabby Giffords’ Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS) are vowing to “spend what it takes” to defeat the national reciprocity legislation currently being considered by Congress.

The legislation–put forth in the House by Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC-8)–would treat concealed carry permits like a driver’s license, making a permit from one state valid in the other 49. This would free law-abiding citizens from the burdensome patchwork of concealed carry laws that presently result in carry permits being valid in some states, but not in others.

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) has put forward companion legislation in the Senate.
According to The Guardian, Everytown and ARS vow to do their utmost to defeat an expanded recognition of the carry permits of law-abiding citizens. Both groups argue that national recognition of concealed carry permits would be unsafe because of the different training standards for permits in each state.

This complaint is actually a not-so-veiled admission that national reciprocity would force gun control states like California, Illinois, New Jersey, and New York, to allow the exercise of Second Amendment rights by concealed carry permit holders from other states.

For example, California currently refuses to recognize the concealed carry permit from the other 49 states and places so many limitations on its own residents that fewer than 80,000 in-state permit holders exist. This scenario will be done away once national reciprocity forces recognition of the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Peter Ambler is the executive director of Giffords’ gun control group and he suggests national reciprocity has only gained momentum because people are uneducated. He said, “We’ve got an education deficit both on the Hill and around town among members of Congress, senators, staff, members of the media.”

On April 10, 2017, Breitbart News reported that Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety pledged $25 million to defeat national reciprocity.
