University Said Flag Was Offensive, So Frat Replaced It With Bigger Flag

 A Stanford University honcho advised a fraternity last year to take down an American flag for fear of “offending people”, however the frat hit back in the most patriotic way possible.


A Stanford University honcho advised a fraternity last year to take down an American flag for fear of "offending people", however the frat hit back in the most patriotic way possible.

 It is heartening, then, to read that when the Stanford administrator dared “imply that the American flag, as a symbol, could be intimidating, aggressive or alienating,” the frat he was advising responded by “instead choosing to replace it with an even bigger one.”

 This was absolutely the right response. As Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said in his too-little-appreciated valedictory speech on the Senate floor in 2017:

America has made a greater contribution than any other nation to an international order that has liberated more people from tyranny and poverty than ever before in history. We have been the greatest example, the greatest supporter and the greatest defender of that order. We aren’t afraid. We don’t covet other people’s land and wealth. We don’t hide behind walls. We breach them. We are a blessing to humanity.

 Washington Examiner reports: Americans give more in aid to other nations, and to impoverished populations or those beset by tragedy, than any other people. We have sacrificed the most lives on behalf of the freedom and security of others. We have served as an inspiration for virtually every nation in the world that features a republican form of government.

 Yet, largely because our education system remains a shambles, especially when it comes to teaching history and civics, we have now raised at least two generations not just too ignorant to know the facts or context of American leadership in so much of what is good, but also too incurious and clueless about how to make cogent assessments of such considerations.

Anti-American epidemic

 Now we face what the sponsor survey cited by Bedard called an “epidemic of anti-Americanism.” Half of millennials think the country is racist and sexist, and nearly two-fifths think our history is nothing to be proud of.

 In light of those numbers, perhaps it is heartening, in a weird way, that only 19 percent of millennials think our flag is “a sign of intolerance and hatred.” Four-fifths, then, do not automatically agree with the benighted Stanford administrator who suggested the flag should be taken down.

 Whole volumes could be written about what makes this nation a beacon of light for the world. In the absence of time to write those volumes, though, it’s not a bad idea to buy, and display, bigger American flags.

CRIME!! -> Clinton Nightmare! Chief Financial Officer Of Clinton Foundation Turns Government Informant On Crime Family

Donations to the Clinton Foundation plummeted by 90% over a three-year period since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to President Donald Trump.

But that may be the least of the her worries.

John Solomon from The Hill dropped another bombshell that will keep the Clintons up at night.

The former Chief Financial Officer of the Clinton Foundation has turned on the crime family and is now working as a government informant.

This could spell doom for the Clinton Crime Family.

American Thinker reported:

John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings.

[A] GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

It turns out that whistleblowers inside and outside the Clinton Foundation have amassed “6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.” Among that evidence can be found:

Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

Their own investigation! That’s hard to put down as politically motivated.

Having the chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation turn informant is a nightmare for the Clintons. The CFO has to process all the cash, and because that person usually is on the hook for any criminal violations, there is ample incentive to turn state’s evidence.

That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark.
