UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested in China for shoplifting while attending basketball tournament. UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said the players stole from three stores in China including sunglasses stolen by LiAngelo Ball from a Louis Vitton store. They were facing 10 years in prison. President Trump asked President Xi Jinping for leniency. The three players were released. Thug life on display – After watching this bizarro interview with his father I can completely understand why LiAngelo Ball thought it would be perfectly okay to shoplift in China and live a life beyond
Watch him. Unbelievable ignorance and arrogance. A dreadful combination.
The socialists need to (re)educate the Ball family on this: it´s okay to steal in *capitalist* countries, but China is *communist*, so you´re stealing from the people, which is wrong. In America, the capitalists have already stolen from the people, so it´s okay to steal it back. Have I got that right?
He is parroting the "relative morality" narrative that has been peddled by liberals for decades.
LeVar claims that committing crimes is permissible as long as no one is hurt; it´s all relative. LeVar, I have news for you - crime is crime, theft is theft. They all are wrong, they all abuse the rights of others and have consequences.
Nation of thieves. Visit Mexico and see a country where houses are surrounded by walls with concertina wire or broken glass embedded in the top of the wall to discourage home invaders. They´ll steal anything that isn´t embedded in concrete. They´ll steal a lamp post to get at the bicycle to which it is locked. We are becoming Mexico.
I think it was a good thing the Cable stations gave him Air Time. The more he talks, the more we understand why his Son thought it was no Big Deal to steal Designer Sunglasses. No, they were not $10 glasses, they were Designer costing hundreds of dollars! But the Baby Daddy says it was no Big Deal and many of us think the Daddy is no Big Deal even though he thinks he is!
remember this when you buy sneakers (or any other product) that have player endorsements). it is your money that goes into Ball´s pocket and allows this piece of getto trash to act this way. That and you worship of sports figures.
What does LeVar do for a living? If he works for a living, I would bet he would go ballistic if someone stole something from him. If he get´s his money from the "Dole"- welfare, SS disavility, etc, then he probably is indifferent if someone steals from him. ´Da monee is free so what´s da big deal? Right?´
Crap games around the corner, bettin´ on BB, makin´ some ´divide´, That weekend fea market full of shop lifted goods is all the rage. Buy some had shine fo´ a dolla.
See, it is a whole culture. An entire society that lives this way and so their values are completely different from the old, outdated, Judaeo/Christian/Western European ethnic of working hard, making a life and raising a family.
The Johnson "Great Society" "Gimmi votes, I gib you all kind´a free stuff" plan is what created this disaster. Now we have millions of people just like LeVar- easily manipulated, under educated freeloaders who have the moral compass of a weasel. And they get paid extra for making more people just like him.
I think this subject aligns itself with the NFL protests. If a person has no respect for their own country, how will that person handle being in a foreign country. Will they have respect for that country?
This "anything goes" mentality is getting old but what do you expect after eight years of President Obama with the same attitude. It really does trickle down.
This country is truly having to recover from immature presidents and that includes George W. Bush.
I just heard on the Chris Plante show that the total value of the stolen items was $6,000. Even in the US that is felony level robbery.
I bet LaVar still can’t understand why blacks have a certain reputation which makes people of other races avoid them and makes security officers follow them around in store. And that doesn’t even speak to the looting, the burning, the riots and the flash mobs.
It’s too bad that PDT can’t send daddy to China to do time for his son and his pals - 30 years in a Chinese prison might teach him some humility and some manners. If he survives, that is,
By essentially claiming that in contemporary US ghetto black culture that “Stealin’ Be Ok, No Big Deal” that guy is putting the world on notice that when American black people are in their countries that those black Americans should be closely watched, at least while shopping in stores, to ensure that they do not shoplift of otherwise help themselves to items of value without paying. Unfortunately a lot of the people who will be hurt by that sure to be stereotyping are going to be honest American black people who have no intention of violating foreign laws.
Although Ball alone initially received minimal public attention before much of 2016, his sons gave him a media platform that he would begin to use increasingly, starting at the end of the year. In July 2015, LaVar and his sons made national sports headlines when Gary Parrish of CBS Sports wrote a feature story about the Ball family. In a March 2016 interview with MaxPreps, he first began displaying his arrogant personality to the public. When asked who Lonzo plays like, he described his son as "Magic (Johnson) with a jumper." The family continued rising in popularity after SLAM magazine featured them in an article in August 2016. Subsequently, Ball himself rapidly rose in profile through a series of incredible comments about his children…(Snip)
On April 20, George Raveling, the global basketball sports marketing director of Nike, called Ball "the worst thing to happen to basketball in the last hundred years." In response, Ball claimed that Big Baller Brand would eventually compete with Nike In the following week, Nike, Under Armour, and Adidas declined to sign an endorsement deal with Lonzo, according to LaVar.
Though the hate-filled press would like you to think otherwise, this Christmas we have witnessed a return to a classic sense of style at the White House. The much-discussed Trump Christmas decor has contributed to this proper and appropriate appreciation of style which—as opposed to fashion—is timeless. Adam Flusser, the master of sartorial propriety, taught us certain standards complement our humanity. Style is higher than fashion because style comports itself with something eternal; something that is in accord timeless and elegant principles.(Snip)When the Obamas occupied the White House, their decorations reflected a cavalier attitude not only about the meaning of
Toward the final months of his presidency Barack Obama infamously said the following regarding jobs that had left America – including millions during his eights years as President: “…some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back.” And when commenting on then-candidate Donald Trump’s promise to bring jobs back, Mr. Obama said this: “…Well, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have?” No magic want was needed by POTUS Trump. Just some common sense, a basic understanding of economics (remember, Barack Obama never created a private sector job in his life and is
rom Fox News: Olympic star Lindsey Vonn says she won´t represent Trump at 2018 Winter Games Hmm. She might not represent him or anyone else after injuring her back today. Vonn virtue-signaled this week on CNN. From Fox News: “I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Vonn said this week amid the buildup to the 2018 games in PyeongChang, South Korea.(Snip) She joins a choir of millionaire athletes pandering to pretentious liberals and Antifa fascists. Today, the Associated Press reported: Lindsey Vonn finished a World Cup super-G in extreme pain Saturday and was treated by race doctors for a back injury. The
In an effort to ridicule President Trump, Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel tweeted a fake news picture from last night’s MAGA rally in Pensacola Florida; obviously attempting to frame a narrative that the rally was poorly attended. (Tweet) Except the picture was entirely FAKE NEWS, and President Trump just called Dave Weigel out on Twitter: (Tweet)…Along with actual pictures from the rally: (Photos).Which forced WaPo reporter Dave Weigel to retract and apologize: Sure thing: I apologize. I deleted the photo after @dmartosko told me I’d gotten it wrong. Was confused by the image of you walking in the bottom right corner.
There are obviously multiple investigative angles stemming from all the stories within investigations into the previous administration’s politicization of the FBI and DOJ. One of those angles is the system of applying for FISA warrants and surveillance of U.S. persons. Against the backdrop of FISA court judge Rudolph Contreras mysterious recusal from the Mike Flynn case; and against increasing sunlight upon FBI investigative agent Peter Strzok, yesterday House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, discussed his ongoing concerns about abuse within the FBI and DOJ process. (Snip)June/July 2016 a FISA request is denied. This is simultaneous to FBI agent Strzok initial contact
MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Frank Luntz, a GOP establishment messaging consultant, was visibly flabbergasted as every single one of his focus group participants in a Birmingham area Vice News-produced panel backed Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Titled “Why These Alabama Voters Are Sticking By Roy Moore,” Luntz’s Vice News focus group aired on Vice News Tonight on Dec. 8 on HBO. “Are you all Christians here?” Luntz opens the seven-and-a-half-minute long segment. “Yes,” all of the focus group participants, who joined Luntz in a Birmingham area restaurant, replied. “Is Roy Moore a good Christian?” he followed up. “Yes,” one woman replied. “Absolutely,” another said. “Absolutely?”
Nikki Haley, America´s ambassador to the United Nations, suggested that the United States´ participation in February´s Winter Olympics in South Korea remains up in the air, while the White House said Thursday that "no official decision has been made" regarding the games. Haley was initially asked Wednesday night on Fox News whether sending American athletes was a "done deal" given the tensions in the region, and responded that the situation is an "open question." "I have not heard anything about that," she added, "but I do know in the talks that we have — whether it´s Jerusalem or North Korea — it´s
The Republican establishment group fronted by failed presidential candidate Evan McMullin — which has spent $500,000 against populist conservative Judge Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race — supports a constant flow of Middle East migration to the United States. McMullin’s “Stand Up Republic” has spent half a million dollars attempting to help elect Moore’s opponent in the Alabama Senate race, pro-open borders Democrat candidate Doug Jones, as Breitbart News reported. The GOP establishment organization, though, is vastly at odds with Alabama voters, opposing President Trump’s travel ban, which blocks foreign nationals from a handful of countries that export terrorism,
Birmingham, ALABAMA — Despite efforts by Democratic senatorial candidate Doug Jones to pass himself off as a moderate, the politician has been deeply tied to radical groups financed by billionaire George Soros and has led efforts on behalf of those groups seeking to enact far-left, transformational policies. Jones’s personal website has urged supporters to get involved with Soros-financed far-left groups and he took leadership positions in numerous Soros-financed activist projects, including one seeking to fundamentally remake the U.S. criminal justice system into one that pushes progressive policies. He also took a significant role in an effort by a far-left legal
By now everyone is likely aware of the Fake News story run by CNN on Friday surrounding an email received by Donald Trump Jr. The email was part of the investigative evidence shared with the House Intelligence committee; and later leaked from within that committee to CNN – thereby initiating the false reporting on the content. The central issue in the CNN story was the date of an email. It was leaked from within the committee, and later reported by CNN, that the date was “September 4th, 2016”; a date convenient for a collusion narrative between Trump Jr and WikiLeaks.
Facebook warned Breitbart News on Friday that the author of a completely factual story concerning the accuser of Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore needed to consult “additional reporting” from the liberal fact-checker Politifact. The story, published on Friday morning, detailed how Beverly Young Nelson, who accused Roy Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager, admitted to adding “notes” to part of her yearbook, which she claims Moore signed. This revelation came despite Nelson claiming at her initial press conference alongside her lawyer Gloria Allred, that the entire yearbook document was solely Moore’s handwriting. In a message
MCALLEN, Texas — A South Texas jury sentenced a former Catholic priest to life in prison for the murder of a local school teacher and former beauty queen in 1960 when he was assigned to a local church. For more than 55 years, the priest managed to avoid facing any consequences in connection with the murder. (Snip) During the trial, testimony pointed to a deal between the district attorney in 1960 and members of the Catholic Church. As part of the agreement, Feit was expected to plead guilty to the assault and authorities would not investigate him in connection with the murder.
One of the women who accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of making advances on her when she was a teen and he a local prosecutor admitted Friday to forging part of the yearbook inscription she offered as proof. Beverly Young Nelson told ABC News she wrote part of the disputed note in her high school yearbook that she and famed attorney Gloria Allred presented as proof the then-30-something Moore sought an inappropriate relationship with her in the late 1970s. Nelson still insisted that Moore wrote most of the message and signed the inscription, but said she made “notes” to
Lindsey Vonn’s road to her final Olympics has encountered some trouble. The American skiing star was treated for a back injury after completing her World Cup Super-G race in St. Moritz, Switzerland on Saturday. Vonn went to the ground after crossing the finish line and observers said she was experiencing extreme pain. She was treated in a nearby house and later limped to a car without speaking to reporters.
I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,
Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting
MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said Thursday night that "the worst you can say about Democrats is that they´re too pure" in light of recent resignation announcements made by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Sen. John Conyers (D-Mich.) amid sexual harassment allegations. Franken, 66, on Thursday, announced his intention to resign from the Senate by defiantly stating that some of the eight accusations of sexual misconduct made against him were false while saying he remembered other encounters differently.
Comedian Sarah Silverman addressed the topic of American nationalism during a monologue on her Hulu talk show Thursday night, describing the “visceral reaction” and fear she felt when an old boyfriend of hers hoisted an American flag on his own property. (Snip) “[My sister] was like, ‘Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it: flags, marching, blind allegiance — these things tend to ring a bell for us,’” she said. “Right. Of course. Duh. It made sense. And it made me realize that the things that terrify some people are the same things that give other people great
California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday. Brown, who previously studied to become
WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
In ever so lacy, delicate and pious tears-and-flapdoodle language, former President Obama basically suggested President Trump is Hitler. According to the Daily Mail: Barack Obama appeared to compare Donald Trump´s presidency to Hitler´s rise to power during a speech in Chicago on Tuesday. The former president was speaking at an event thrown by the Economic Club of Chicago at a Hilton hotel when he made the remarks. Without mentioning the current president, Obama told the gathered audience of 1,800: ´We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.
Thomas B. Edsall, one of the pre-eminent commentators on American politics and elections, has written a piece for the New York Times, provocatively titled “Liberals Need To Take Their Fingers Out of Their Ears.” In it, he argues that the roots of President Trump’s success—and our increasingly bitter politics—should be laid at the feet (to continue with the body-part metaphors) of liberals. “Many Democrats,” he writes, “continue to have little understanding of their own role — often inadvertent, an unintended consequence of well-meaning behavior — in creating the conditions that make conservatives willing to support Trump and the party he
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has sabotaged his own investigation of Russian meddling into the 2016 election. He has only himself to blame for ruining what could have been a credible probe. (Snip) Because Mueller improperly stacked the deck of his special counsel staff with biased crusaders, he transformed what was supposed to be an impartial investigation into an illegitimate and seemingly corrupt one. To restore integrity, Attorney General Jeff Sessions should un-recuse himself from the case for the limited purpose of cleaning up Mueller’s mess. There is no law that prevents the attorney general from doing this. Sessions should remove all of
Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) announced Thursday that he would resign from office as of Jan. 31, 2018, after discussing surrogacy issues with female staffers. “I have recently learned that the Ethics Committee is reviewing an inquiry regarding my discussion of surrogacy with two previous female subordinates, making each feel uncomfortable,” he said in a statement. “I deeply regret that my discussion of this option and process in the workplace caused distress.” Franks’ announcement shocked Capitol Hill. He has been a vocal social conservative since being elected to Congress in 2002, and has authored numerous anti-abortion bills. He is married, with twin
