Libs, Including Chris Cuomo, Are Okay
with Using 'Fredo' as an Insult

Original Article

Posted By: Hazymac, 8/13/2019 6:58:24 PM

If you haven't seen the video of Chris Cuomo threatening to beat somebody up for calling him "Fredo," then I'm happy to be the one showing you. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my entire life. WARNING: Chris Cuomo says some bad words. (Snip) There are a lot of ways you can respond when you think somebody has insulted you, but of course Chris Cuomo responded in Chris Cuomo fashion: aggressively hostile and hilariously stupid. He really was about to throw down with this dude, just for calling him "Fredo." What better way to shatter stereotypes about Italians than to yell and scream

Comments:

They can dish it out, but they can't take it. Fredo forever! ROTFLMAO. Chick-a-boom chick-a-boom don't cha just love it. Should a CNN anchor dude open himself to the charge of personifying the Cowardly Lion's "Put 'em up, put 'em up!"? The whole damned network, such as it is, just did that. The glass-jawed CC just took a verbal barb on the button. Sleep well, Fredo.

Well, good, because you can bet I am going to use "Fredo" whenever and wherever it fits.

Bob Grant used to use a Sicilian pejorative "sfacim" (or lowlife) to describe this jerks father-the overrated Mario. Curtis Sliwa refers to Andrew as "faccia brutta" (or ugly face)-not exactly a compliment either. Fredo was the meek, slightly dim member of the Corleone family--who is a FICTIONAL character. This jerk does remind me and apparently many others of Fredo. NOT A SLUR IN THE LEAST. Suck it up Chris baby-you are in the public sphere-people will call you names.

NBC News is reporting that Democratic presidential candidate and former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke is looking to "reset" his campaign as he attempts to revive his political fortunes. (Snip) O'Rourke received desperately needed national attention after the El Paso massacre by calling Trump a "white supremacist" and Trump voters "racists." His frantic efforts to get attention -- much like a two-year-old throwing a tantrum -- included the outrageous statement that Trump was "inciting violence." Of course, O'Rourke failed to clarify that idiotic statement because, well, he wouldn't be able to point to a single statement by the president that incited violence in any way, shape,

If you're still hoping for even more Democrats to join the already crowded clown car of 2020 candidates, you're in luck, because Rev. Al Sharpton might be thinking about entering the race. “I never rule anything out,” said Sharpton, adding that he isn’t currently exploring a run for the nomination. (Snip) I, for one, would welcome Al Sharpton's entrance to the 2020 Democratic primary. Sharpton's has made a career out of race-baiting, which has now become mainstream in the Democratic Party. If Joe Biden can be the frontrunner, despite his inappropriate behavior with women and young girls, Sharpton's controversial past is certainly not

Presidential candidate Joe Biden writes: "Many police departments have reported an increase in criminals using assault weapons since 2004. (Snip) Somewhat perplexingly, the links on “multiple analyses” and “fewer mass shootings” actually go to the same study, just hosted at two different websites. But it’s a new one I hadn’t seen before, and slightly different from the one I wrote about here, so let’s take a look. First, a quick bit of history: The U.S. had a ban on “assault weapons” — semiautomatic guns with certain combinations of “tactical” cosmetic features, including pistol grips and folding stocks — from 1994 to 2004.

"The power to tax is the power to destroy." -John Marshall, 4th Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential contender Liz Warren wants to tax us gun owners back to the Stone Age, as a part of her radical gun control agenda, revealed this weekend. If elected, Warren promises to raise taxes on firearms and ammo purchases by 30% and 50%, respectively. That's on top of her plan for federal licensing for gun ownership -- presumably with a federal database of who owns what -- expanded background checks, and a renewed ban on "assault-style" weapons.

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren yesterday tweeted: Elizabeth Warren ✔ @ewarren 5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. (Snip) This is an outright lie, one day after Warren complained of the dangers of rhetoric. Michael Brown was not murdered. Michael Brown was shot by officer Darren Wilson in an act of self-defense. This is why the grand jury declined to indict Wilson for murder or manslaughter, and it was also the conclusion of the Obama administration’s Department of Justice. “Every police officer in America should be offended by Sen. Warren’s ill-informed, inflammatory tweet today,” Jeff Roorda of the St. Louis Police

Mass murder is not a gun control problem. In 2003, Kim Dae-han, a middle-aged taxi driver, killed 192 people and left 151 others wounded, by setting a South Korean subway train on fire using paint cans filled with gasoline. In 2016, Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, a Muslim terrorist, killed 86 people and wounded 458 others by ramming a truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in France. In 2001, Muslim terrorists killed 2,977 people and injured 6,000 more, by using box cutters to hijack airplanes and fly them into buildings. Guns are a tool. There are a whole lot of other devastating ways to kill lots of people. American mass killers often use guns

Smart, articulate guy.” *** Aides were then seen signaling him to stop talking, but Biden pushed on. “Rest assured,” Biden said. “I like all races, even the bad ones.” And the Bee’s conclusion couldn’t be truer: Media immediately jumped all over Biden’s comments,

In trying to measure the effects of guns on society -- not just the Americans -- it pays to be careful about what we are describing. The Washington Post explains that there is no direct relation between the number of firearms in circulation and the number of ordinary gun-related murders. (Snip) Ordinary murder is apparently driven by more than the weapon. An observed reduction in the propensity of Americans to shoot each other offset the greater availability of weapons. The federal assault weapons ban and its subsequent removal without detectable effect showed how weak a factor it was by itself.

A favorite question that the anti-gun crowd likes to ask is "Why does anyone need an AR-15?" Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has a very practical answer to that, which he offered to reporters on Friday. (Snip) That's a very sound point. No matter where you live, you can come up with a legitimate argument for owning an AR-15 for self-defense. Of course, no one ever wants to be in a situation where they have to, but the peace of mind is a gift. Although he can occasionally be a firebrand, Graham is still a United States senator and was flying with the president on Air Force One when asked

Five years ago, on August 9, 2014, Michael Brown was shot and killed in Ferguson, Missouri, by police officer Darren Wilson. The death, and the claim that Brown was shot with his hands up asking not to shoot, sparked riots and launched the Black Lives Matter Movement to national prominence. But the narrative was based on a lie. Brown was shot because he attacked and attempted to take Wilson’s pistol. His hands weren’t up, and he didn’t ask not to shoot, as an Obama-Holder Justice Department investigation later proved. Yet on this 5th Anniversary, the lies are being spread again by many people, including

Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future. The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

Is it possible prosecutors have lost track of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator in his pedophile ring? For the past few weeks, rumors have circulated that she’s 400 pounds and living in Florida, or that she’s living the high life in London or the Continent, but according to the Washington Post, authorities are having a hard time locating her. Those who know her say that it’s possible she is as much of a Houdini as Epstein. Both of them liked having secrets, and the way those secrets kept people off balance. “Jeffrey always wanted to give the impression that he was an international man of mystery—‘I control everyone
