Daily Wire, by Hank Berrien

A Louisiana mother of six children and foster mother to other children has a mixed-race family whose children thought that Blue Bell Ice Cream should change the name of a popular chocolate and vanilla ice cream flavor, The Great Divide, to “Better Together.” As Fox News reports, “Traci Schmidley, her husband, and their brood of six children were sitting down for an ice cream party at their Louisiana home to celebrate the end of a hard week.” Schmidley wrote, “We always buy Blue Bell, and this time we chose the flavor The Great Divide, which has chocolate on one half

Next, she will be demanding that the term, ´day´ and ´night´ be changed to be more inclusive. Some contrasts are obvious except to liberals who believe the world, as it exist in nature, is racist.

The family is divided. Some prefer chocolate, some vanilla, some both.

The great divide brings our family together.

Is it cultural appropriation for a white man to like chocolate ice cream and a black man to like vanilla? /s
Better Together ought to be the name of a vanilla chocolate swirl.

Oh dear, they´re into ice cream now. Around where I live, it´s called a Twist, in reference to soft ice cream. Actually, I call it good, no matter the color or flavor so long as it is ice cream in some form.
The vanilla and the chocolate are flavors, not the colors.

Have you ever tried to reason anything out with these people? Me neither. I value my sanity or whatever is left of it.

They should leave The Great Divide alone, because the contrast is wonderful, and maybe, perhaps, on a lark, make another with the flavors combined.

So if you prefer vanilla over chocolate, you are discriminating and are in need of sensitivity and diversity re-education, regarding your vanilla supremacy. Will Blue Bell be providing "safe spaces" where the ice cream cannot melt while people ponder this?

Ya know what, folks? It´s ice cream. Not everything must be a point of contention. For what it´s worth - ´Better Together" is no more indicator of flavor than "Great Divide". But it does sound more harmonious. These folks had the ´nads to ask a great big company to consider a change, in a quite personal, teaching moment sort of way. Isn´t that what our POTUS is demonstrating? Make the change - splash the family photo a couple times. Geeze. Life is short. Have some fun and love your fellow compatriots along the way. We buy the ice cream, we eat the ice cream - why can´t we have some fun (read: ´fun´) input about the naming of the ice cream. And it´s Blue Bunny. Not like it´s Ben and Jarrods or anything. Put me down for "Better Together". And to the family...Good on y´all for speakin´ up. Good Luck!!

Well, this is some Grade-A crap. Apparently, there are some so-called conservatives, who miss Barack Obama and would take him “back in a nanosecond.” It’s not because they support his policies. It’s because Donald Trump is president, and that is a sour grapes reason. Max Boot made this point known in his op-ed this week: How I miss Barack Obama. And I say that as someone who worked to defeat him: I was a foreign policy adviser to John McCain in 2008 and to Mitt Romney in 2012. I criticized Obama’s “lead from behind” foreign policy that resulted in a

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats on Saturday sought to clarify critical remarks he made this week about President Donald Trump inviting Russian President Vladimir Putin to visit the White House this fall. During a fireside chat at the Aspen Security Forum Thursday, Coats was left confounded after NBC anchor Andrea Mitchell first notified him of Putin receiving an invitation to Washington, D.C. “Say that again,” Coats said, cupping his hand over his ear on live television. He took a deep breath and continued: “OK. That’s going to be special.” (Video/Tweet) Coats also revealed in the interview with Mitchell that

The Justice Department released on Saturday more than 400 pages of top-secret documents pertaining to the FISA warrant obtained to surveil former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. The documents were first obtained by the New York Times through a Freedom of Information Act request. "This application targets Carter Page,” the document said. “The F.B.I. believes Page has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian government.” Included within the previously classified documents are the 2016 application for the FISA warrant taken out on Page in addition to three renewal applications.

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you. Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges. It is no longer in dispute that they held animus for Donald Trump, who was a subject of their Russia probe, or that they openly discussed using the powers

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves.
