The first warriors on the ground in Afghanistan after 9/11 were not Delta or the Seals or some super-duper bunch of Door Kickers, it was a team of Green Berets who literally helped bring down the Taliban government with a GPS, a radio and on horseback…yes, horseback. While the rest of the military was trying to unfuck themselves back at home, they were in the middle of a country that had no love for America engaging people that they did not trust in order to bring down the government that supported Bin Laden and his attack on US Soil.
No, the preview is not exaggerating. They never rode horses, yet they learned and ended up in a cavalry charge against modern armor and artillery…and they fucking won.
If you can’t wait for the movie, get the book Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton.
Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has been called a lot of things by supporters and critics over his 94 years on this planet: revolutionary; freedom fighter; dictator; alleged perpetrator of human rights violations. He’s about to add another controversial moniker to the list—”Goodwill Ambassador” to the World Health Organization (WHO).
New WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced that Mugabe would be a goodwill ambassador to the public health agency at a conference in Uruguay. Mugabe, according to Ghebreyesus, who is from Ethiopia, could then leverage the high profile (if largely symbolic) role “to influence his peers in his region,” ostensibly referring to African countries. Mugabe would be an ambassador on broad health issues like noncommunicable diseases such as heart disease and cancer.
So the United Nations once again shows that they are more into making sure Socialist Dictators get Good Buddy badges than actually tackle people suffering under their regimes.
You country racked by Malaria, TB and HIV? No problem, we got you. Neonatal and Under-Five Child Mortality out of control? Call it population control.
I am honoured to be joined by President Mugabe, of Zimbabwe, a country that places universal health coverage and health promotion at the centre of its policies to provide health care to all.
Today I am also honoured to announce that President Mugabe has agreed to serve as a goodwill ambassador on NCDs for Africa to influence his peers in his region to prioritize NCDs.
These were the words of Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization. and former Minister of Health for Ethiopia, another Socialist from a Country without very much in the public health department.
We do need to GTFO.

It is all true…. 🙂
I was expecting the tear gas, not the other goodies.
Julianne Moore appeared on The View.
Of course she opens with condemnation of Harvey Weinstein.
Her statement is hollow and meaningless. She walked away from a show with Weinstein. Only AFTER his scandal became headline news.
That is the moral position of Brave Sir Robin.
“Oh shit, Weinstein has become toxic. His company is headed to bankruptcy. Run away!!!”
She totally supports his victims. Not enough of course to say anything BEFORE the scandal hit the news.
From what we have learned from this is that EVERYBODY knew about Weinstein. Everybody in Hollywood that is. As long as that stayed in Hollywood it was OK to work with him.
Moore worked with Weinstein on eight movies, of course she knew, but she only condemned him after us normals found out.
Less than two minutes into her interview (1:58 to be exact), The View faints hard left and deflects from actual genuflecting on Hollywood being a sewer or perversion, sexual misconduct, and pedophilia, to talk about gun control.
It’s not about gun control, “its a safety issue.” Part of Moore’s desire for gun safety is a limit on the number of guns a person can own, which sounds a lot like control to me.
Sure 47 guns in the Mandalay Bay hotel is a lot, but all he needed was one gun and a lot of magazines to do the same thing, cheaper. There is no evidence that he fired all 47 guns, not to mention that he didn’t have time to. So what is the point here? What does limiting the number of guns a person can own have to do with safety? Nothing. It’s about control.
Here’s the thing. I went to my safes, and I counted. I know people like her have a problem with guns, but they really love to focus on semi autos. It’s that whole “we’re not coming after your deer rifle” deflection they love to use.
So forgive me if my response to Ms. Julianne Moore is “just fuck off already.”
I am not about to listen to a member of Hollywood cesspool tell me about how many guns I’m allowed to own while mouthing pities of condemnation of a man whose employment contract allowed for sexual abuse, only after he was publicly outed.
I couldn’t care less about any of their opinions. They have no more moral high ground from which to argue.
If that didn’t piss you off enough, in prepping for this post I found one other gem from The View.
Way back in 2013, Corey Feldman was on The View talking to Barbra Walters. Feldman was a child actor who has been open about the culture of pedophilia in Hollywood. He tried to bring that up during his interview and Barbra Walters. Shut. Him. Down.
That’s really speaking truth to power there Babs.
What the’s first rule of Fight Club? You do not talk about Fight Club.
What’s the first rule of Hollywood? You do not talk about the perverts running the show, even if that means more children get molested.
These people do not have the right to tell me how to live my life ever again.
