Ron Perlman Issues Sick Insult to Trump Supporters, Gets Attacked by Angry Patriots

Actor Ron Perlman took to Twitter to slam millions of Americans, spewing nonsense and lies. He must have been pretty proud of his nasty slander. But “deplorable” patriots were quick to turn it around, hitting him where he least expected it.

At this point, it’s pretty entertaining to watch liberals meltdown. Especially rich, entitled, selfish actors. They are so out-of-touch with reality, you can’t take anything they say seriously. The wild attacks and claims they make toward the president and Americans are laughable.

Until they inspire violence from the left.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is never more apparent than among the rich elite of Hollywood. These scumbags are some of the worst people in the country. The entire industry gets rich from pushing violence, sex, drug abuse, and hate in the form of movies, TV, and music. Yet they get on their high horses to judge the rest of the country for voting for Trump.

Give me a break.

That’s not even mentioning how most of the industry protects rapists, child molesters, and other sexual predators. Then they hide behind the #MeToo hashtag as if they support women.

One of the most deranged members of the Hollywood elite is Ron Perlman. The actor who once portrayed a demon from hell has the audacity to spew hatred against the POTUS and the millions of Americans who support him.

This time, he took to Twitter to craft a really damaging tweet against the Commander in Chief. But, as with SO MANY other liberal acts, it backfired.

Ron Perlman REALLY thought this tweet was a dig at Trump.

You can tell he worked super hard on it, even choosing a specific voice and delivery to appear tough … on Twitter.

Don’t make that face, we didn’t write the thing.

Anyway, as usual, Ron set himself up to fail in a big way with this one. [Source: Twitchy]

Yep, the actor (suffering from a heavy case of TDS) didn’t even see what he was writing. So many times, the liberal media accuses Trump of “inciting violence.” Particularly against them. Yet Trump has never, ever called for his supporters to harm anyone. Trump has always called for his supporters to work hard, supporter their communities, and vote.

We’ve only seen liberals use rhetoric that supports violence. Some have even openly portrayed the murder of Trump and his family. It’s happened so many times, I’m losing count.

But we’re supposed to believe it’s Trump who is in the wrong? I don’t think I can even stomach that kind of hypocrisy. Especially from Perlman, whose entire career has been built around glorifying violence, aggression, and cruelty.

The good news is there were plenty of patriots on hand to point this out.

President Trump warns Iranian president against threatening U.S. – The Denver Post

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump warned Iranian President Hassan Rouhani early Monday that he will face dire consequences for threatening the United States.

Trump tweeted about the dangers to Iran of making hostile threats after Rouhani said Sunday “American must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace and war with Iran is the mother of all wars.” Trump responded with a tweet that warned: “NEVER EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKE OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE.”

Trump earlier this year pulled the United States out of the international deal meant to prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon and ordered increased American sanctions.

Rouhani had warned Trump Sunday to stop “playing with the lion’s tail” and threatening Iran, “or else you will regret it.”

Trump has suggested Iranian leaders are “going to call me and say ‘let’s make a deal’” but Iran has rejected talks.

Rouhani has previously lashed out against Trump for threatening to re-impose the sanctions, as well as for moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and banning travel to the U.S. from certain Muslim-majority countries.

Trump’s tweet suggested he has little patience with the trading of hostile messages with Iran, using exceptionally strong language and writing an all-capitalized tweet.

“WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!,” he wrote.

Trump has a history of firing off heated tweets that seem to quickly escalate long-standing disputes with leaders of nations at odds with the U.S.

In the case of North Korea, the public war of words cooled quickly and gradually led to the high profile summit and denuclearization talks.

On Sunday in California, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was strongly critical of Iran.

He called the religious leaders of Iran “hypocritical holy men” who amassed vast sums of wealth while allowing their people to suffer, part of a highly critical broadside issued as the republic approached the 40th anniversary of its Islamic revolution and the U.S. prepared to reimpose the economic sanctions.

In a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, Pompeo castigated Iran’s political, judicial and military leaders, too, accusing several by name of participating in widespread corruption. He also said the government has “heartlessly repressed its own people’s human rights, dignity and fundamental freedoms.”

He said despite poor treatment by their leaders, “the proud Iranian people are not staying silent about their government’s many abuses,” Pompeo said.

“And the United States under President Trump will not stay silent either. In light of these protests and 40 years of regime tyranny, I have a message for the people of Iran: The United States hears you,” he said. “The United States supports you. The United States is with you.”

Outdoor Retailer Demo Experience brings outdoor adventure to urban Denver

Berne Broudy, a Vermont resident, is a seasoned cyclist, skier and kayaker. On Sunday, she added a new outdoor sport to her résumé: packrafting.

Packrafts are small inflatable boats that can shrink to the size of a paper towel roll and be used to help backpackers cross bodies of water. They were on full display at the Outdoor Retailer Demo Experience at Confluence and Commons Parks, which allowed attendees to test the waters with a variety of cutting-edge outdoor equipment.

“It was super fun and such an awesome way to start the show because I had a mini adventure in downtown Denver,” Broudy said.

Broudy has attended Outdoor Retailer for nearly 20 years and said she enjoys connecting with the outdoor retail community every year.

“You have the chance to be one-on-one with product developers and the people inventing the technologies that are changing outdoor sports,” she said.

More than 50 businesses were present at the Demo Experience, Marisa Nicholson, show director for Outdoor Retailer, said. The Outdoor Retailer Summer Market show runs through Thursday and is relocating to Denver after spending approximately two decades in Utah.

At Commons Park, companies showed off products from tents to water filtration systems while attendees roamed from tent to tent, played cornhole and sprayed themselves down with sunscreen.

Nearby, at the junction of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River, Confluence Park became an urban oasis for outdoor enthusiasts. People tested out the latest in outdoor sports technology, from newly patented stand-up paddleboards to packrafts, and played with their dogs and children at the riverfront.

“So far, I’ve paddled some of the best, most premium paddleboards in the market and, as expected, I’m truly impressed and I’m looking forward to trying some of the other boards as well,” said Andre Niemeyer, publisher of supconnect.com, a stand-up paddleboarding publication.

Peter Hall, founder and CEO of Hala, a stand-up paddleboarding company, was also present at the Demo Experience on Sunday. Over the years, he has enjoyed watching the sport develop and gain popularity.

“Really, we’re just a small but growing brand, but it’s fun to get in the mix and show people,” he said.

Bringing together retailers and outdoor enthusiasts from across the country, the Demo Experience kicked off Outdoor Retailer Summer Market by allowing attendees to experience products for themselves, Nicholson said.

“I think that’s part of the demonstration — this is our industry’s opportunity to show these products in a natural environment,” she said. “It’s a good way to get people energized before tomorrow.”

Ultimately, organizers aimed to take advantage of Denver’s surroundings, Nicholson said.

“The urban experience is there right in downtown Denver,” she said. “There’s great running trails, biking trails and the opportunity to partake in some of the water activities. It was an opportunity for retailers to think about how they can engage in areas in and around them.”

Colorado Rockies facing difficult schedule in late July and into August

PHOENIX — Rockies manager Bud Black says his increasingly confident team is playing its best baseball of the season.

“We can play with anybody,” he reiterated again Sunday morning before the Rockies were whipped 6-1 by Zack Greinke and the Diamondbacks. “But we all know it’s a long season, so you just have to keep moving ahead.”

But now, 99 games into their 162-game marathon, the Rockies (53-46) are approaching their Heartbreak Hill. Black and his players hate it when writers project and look into the future, but I can’t help it. The task awaiting the Rockies is daunting.

Starting with a two-game series against Houston that begins Tuesday night at Coors Field, the Rockies are facing eight consecutive series against teams with winning records.

First come the Astros, the defending World Series champions, whose 66-36 record is the second-best in the majors. Then surprising Oakland (57-40) comes to LoDo, trying to keep its American League wild-card hopes alive.

Following that brief homestand, the Rockies play four games at St. Louis (50-49) followed by three at Milwaukee (56-45).  Both the Brewers and Cardinals have been playing poorly of late, but I expect that the Brewers will rebound. The Cardinals? They’re in disarray, but the Rockies usually struggle in St. Louis, having not posted a winning record there since 2009.

Then the Rockies come home for a crucial seven-game homestand featuring resurgent Pittsburgh (51-49, winner of nine straight) and the dreaded Dodgers (55-44), who just added star infielder Manny Machado and have their eyes locked on a sixth consecutive National League West title.

Then it’s back on the road again for two games at Houston, followed by four at Atlanta during the dog days of August against the talented young Braves (53-42), a team blossoming a year sooner than I expected.

The Rockies have never been to the playoffs in back-to-back seasons, but they have a chance to accomplish that feat. If they can pull it off, they certainly will have earned it.

Lefties wanted. Sunday’s loss illustrated, again, Colorado’s need to pick up a left-handed reliever before the trade deadline.

Chris Rusin was so good in so many roles last season that he earned the nickname “Swiss Army knife.” But he struggled again Sunday.

Rusin replaced starter Antonio Senzatela with one out and one on in the sixth inning. Second baseman Garrett Hampson, playing in his second big-league game, couldn’t handle Jake Lamb’s hot grounder. Then Rusin proceeded to walk Daniel Descalso to load the bases. Rusin was replaced by rookie righty Yency Almonte, who walked Ahmed to force in a run, and then gave up a two-run single to Jeff Mathis.

The weight of that bad inning didn’t rest solely on Rusin’s shoulders, but it was the kind of rally he was able to defuse so well last season. He posted a 2.65 ERA over 85 innings last year, but his ERA has soared to 6.81 this season.

Rotation in motion.  A quirky schedule gives Black some needed flexibility with his starting rotation. Colorado has an off day Monday and another one Thursday.

Right-hander German Marquez was placed on paternity leave Sunday to return to his native Venezuela, and it’s not certain when he will return. Righty Chad Bettis, who’s combating a blister on his right index finger, threw an injury rehab game Saturday for Triple-A Albuquerque, but he left after four innings and 70 pitches because the finger began bothering him.

“The finger bothered Chad a little bit as the outing went on, so we’re going to continue to monitor his finger and where we are, but there’s no timetable on any next start,” Black said.

Rockies’ seven-game winning streak ends as D-backs’ Zack Greinke dominates

PHOENIX — The Rockies’ win streak screeched to a halt Sunday afternoon at Chase Field.

Given Colorado’s track record on Sundays, and given that Arizona right-hander Zack Greinke was dealing like an ace, the outcome was not a big surprise.

Greinke struck out 13 over his eight sterling innings as the Diamondbacks whipped the Rockies 6-1, definitively halting the seven-game run that put Colorado back in the hunt for the National League West title.

Boxscore

Colorado fell to 4-12 on Sundays, despite the fact that manager Bud Black continues to start most of his regulars on a day when some other managers choose to give players a day of rest.

The Rockies slipped to third place in the NL West, two games behind the division-leading Dodgers, who routed Milwaukee 11-2 Sunday, and a half-game behind the Diamondbacks.

Sunday hex or no Sunday hex, the biggest factor in Arizona’s victory was Greinke’s dominating performance. The only run he allowed came on a solo blast by Ian Desmond in the fifth. It was Desmond’s 19th home run, with 14 of them coming on the road. Except for that punch, Colorado barely laid a glove on Greinke. The only other hit Greinke allowed was a single to Trevor Story in the seventh.

Five years after the flood that devastated the Big Thompson Canyon, Viestenz-Smith Mountain Park will reopen to the public with a more natural feel and added resilience.

The popular haven in the Big Thompson Canyon is expected to open this fall when most of the reconstruction and rehabilitation is complete — a multi-phase project that cost nearly $5 million total.

It will feature two pedestrian bridges over the river, which is now on the south end of the property instead of through the middle, as well as a trail that loops around and connects the entire property.

New picnic shade structures dot the property, which is planted with native grasses and trees, and three historic buildings remain.

What was once designed as an urban, manicured park, an oasis in the natural surroundings of the canyon, now features a natural look and design that should withstand future floods.

Boulder landlords, neutral on Section 8 protections, want to delay vote again

Boulder’s landlords are again asking for more time before the City Council considers expanding protections that would block rental housing owners from refusing to lease to Section 8 voucher holders.

Boulder landlords are seeking a delay, again, before City Council weighs broader regulations that would prevent that rental housing owners from declining to lease to Section 8 voucher holders.

Boulder landlords are seeking a delay, again, before City Council weighs broader regulations that would prevent that rental housing owners from declining to lease to Section 8 voucher holders.

At issue is a suggested expansion of the city’s human rights ordinance. Two groups would be added, shielding them from discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations on the basis of immigration status and source of income.

The latter protection means landlords would have to accept tenants receiving federal housing assistance. At a Wednesday information session, representatives from Boulder Area Rental Housing Association said too many questions remain ahead of a scheduled mid-September vote.

“It’s like whack-a-mole,” said Megan Pfanstiel, BARHA’s government affairs coordinator. “We get questions answered but then we have more.”

Pfanstiel and others said a September vote would not allow time for landlords to be involved, as August and September are among the busiest months for property owners.

Francesco Molinari wins British Open

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Francesco Molinari played a steady hand amid another crazy ending at Carnoustie and won the British Open to become Italy’s first major champion.

Tiger Woods took the lead on Sunday at a major for the first time in nine years and lost it with one bad swing. Jordan Spieth cost himself another chance in a major by failing to make a single birdie.

Seven players had a share of the lead at some point. Six were still tied on the back nine.

Through all that suspense, Molinari never flinched.

He closed with a 2-under 69, playing the final 37 holes on the toughest links in golf without a bogey. The clincher was a bold drive on the 18th hole that flirted with edge of a pot bunker, a wedge to 5 feet and a birdie putt that made him a major champion.

Molinari, who finished at 8-under 276, raised his fist and shook it lightly before slamming it for emphasis.

The first to congratulate him was Woods. They were together three weeks ago when Molinari closed with a 62 to win the Quicken Loans National, with Woods presenting him the trophy.

The 35-year-old then had to wait to see if anyone could catch him.

Xander Schauffele, the last one to keep alive the American streak of five straight majors, was one shot behind until he sent a long iron well to the right of the 17th hole and failed to convert a 15-foot par putt to fall two shots behind.

Schauffele had to hole out a wedge on the final hole and checked up well short of the hole.

“It’s been a tough fight,” Molinari said modestly in congratulating the four guys who finished second. “But there can only be one winner. This time, it’s me.”

Schauffele had to settle for second place with Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Kevin Kisner, all of whom had plenty of reason to hope on a warm, windy afternoon that put plenty of bite back into Carnoustie.

All of them made mistakes, big and small.

The biggest blunder belonged to Woods, his red shirt blazing against the yellow grass of dry Scottish summer. The roars for his two birdies could be heard from all corners of Carnoustie. He looked like the Woods of old, and it felt like old times when everyone he was chasing began to collapse.

Kisner, in a three-way tie for the lead with Spieth and Schauffele, took double bogey on No. 2. Spieth hit into a gorse bush and made double bogey on the par-5 sixth. Schauffele made double bogey on the next hole, leaving one in the wispy grass, another over the green.

Woods was at 7 under, in control of his game and hitting shots that only he can. From a pot bunker on No. 10, he took a bold and vicious swing to get it over the lip, over the burn and to the front edge of the green.

And then it all went wrong. He pulled his shot from the rough on No. 11 into the gallery, fluffed a wedge short of the green, ran it by 8 feet and missed the putt for double bogey. Another poor swing followed and led to another bogey, and just like that, Woods was two shots behind and reeling.

“A little ticked off at myself, for sure,” Woods said. “I had a chance starting that back nine to do something, and I didn’t do it.”

Molinari twice saved par with 8-foot putts on the 12th and 13th, and he took the lead for the first time with a short birdie on the par-5 14th. With another tough save from off the green at the 16th, he didn’t miss a shot the rest of the way.

It capped off the best stretch of golf in his career. Over the last two months, Molinari has won three times and runner-up twice, and his first major moves him to a career-best No. 6 in the world.

Neighborhood dispute over Longmont homeless services belies deeper divide

In front of the Heart of Longmont church in the Kiteley neighborhood, a weathered tri-colored sign tells passersby “No matter where you are from, we’re glad you’re our neighbor.”

Curtis Cramer, who is experiencing homelessness, gets a serving of food during a communal meal provided by the Homeless Outreach Providing Encouragement program at the Heart of Longmont Church in July. Some nearby residents blame the church for drawing a group of transient homeless people have started living in Athletic Field Park, which is across the street.

Curtis Cramer, who is experiencing homelessness, gets a serving of food during a communal meal provided by the Homeless Outreach Providing Encouragement program at the Heart of Longmont Church in July. Some nearby residents blame the church for drawing a group of transient homeless people have started living in Athletic Field Park, which is across the street.

But some Kiteley residents are not happy with new neighbors they say have recently taken up residence in Athletic Field Park, between 10th and 11th avenues and Kimbark and Emery streets.

Pam Spencer lives in the neighborhood and says that a group of transient homeless people have started living in the park.

Spencer blames the Heart of Longmont church — located across the street from the northeast corner of the park — and the nonprofit Homeless Outreach Providing Encouragement for drawing the group to the neighborhood by providing homeless services three days a week. She is starting a petitioning effort to ask Heart of Longmont to move their homeless services out of the Kiteley neighborhood.

“What we’ve seen this summer, which is new, is that now several folks have taken up residence in our park and it’s expanding,” she said. “We’ve had more theft and more filth. Our parks are full of needles and drug paraphernalia. (The church) has brought this directly into a residential neighborhood. If you want to provide services, find a more appropriate place to provide them, more of a commercial area where it’s not going to impede on our rights. So now, (the homeless) rights have overtaken our rights.”

After Parkland shooting, gun-control advocates see a turning point for new state laws

Since the Parkland, Florida, high school massacre in February, gun-control advocates have said there is something different about the debate this year, an energy on the issue that is driving gun safety to the top of minds of suburban moms and younger, traditionally less engaged voters.

How, or if, that affects the November midterm elections is to be determined. But there is an early manifestation of this newfound political energy: Gun-control advocates had their best year in state legislatures in recent history.

Since the Florida shooting, the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence counts 55 new gun-control laws passing in 26 states. That is far more success than they normally see, any way you measure it: in the number of laws, the variety of the laws passed and the bipartisan support a number of them had. Republican governors in 15 states signed bills gun-control advocates supported.

It is hard to overstate what a shift this is from last year, where gun-control groups were focused on trying to stop states from allowing guns in universities in churches. But after Americans lived through three of the deadliest mass shootings in its history, it was the pro-gun rights side that was on the defense in state legislatures in a way it has not been before.

“The politics have shifted dramatically,” said Robin Lloyd, the government affairs director at Giffords.

One of gun-control advocates’ biggest wins of the year came in Vermont, the wild West of gun laws (there basically are not any).

This spring, Republican Gov. Phil Scott signed a package of gun-control bills into law, including expanding background checks. And he specifically cited the recent spate of mass shootings as a reason.

” . . . [I]f we had not even tried to reduce the possibility of a tragedy here in Vermont like Parkland or Virginia Tech, Aurora, Las Vegas, Orlando, Sandy Hook, Dallas or Charleston . . . that would be hard to live with,” Scott told a group of gun rights supporters surrounding him at the State House in April, some shouting he was a traitor.

For the first time in recent history, an entirely Republican-controlled state passed a bill limiting the general population’s access to guns. This was Florida, which approved a number of gun laws in response to the Parkland shooting.

After that, gun-control advocates saw a surprising number of states limit where people can carry their guns. Five states tightened where they can bring their concealed firearms. Meanwhile, 14 states – including Arkansas, Missouri and South Dakota – considered but ultimately decided not to expand where people can carry guns.

There was evidence lawmakers were reacting directly to mass shootings in the news as they passed legislation. Eight states banned bump stocks, an attachment used in the Las Vegas massacre in October that makes a semiautomatic weapon fire more like an illegal machine gun.

Two Republican-leaning states strengthened their background check systems. Louisiana and Tennessee now require a gun dealer to report to law enforcement when someone who is prohibited from buying a gun tries to do so anyway.

Oklahoma’s Republican governor vetoed a bill that would have allowed people to carry a concealed firearm without a permit, and 10 other states also considered, but did not pass, a similar bill.

Gun-control advocates witnessed the most bipartisan enthusiasm for their cause when it came to restricting potentially dangerous people’s access to guns. There were a spate of new laws allowing family members or law enforcement to ask a judge to temporarily take away someone’s access if they think that person is imminently dangerous. Before 2018, only three states had such extreme risk protection orders available. Now, there are 11, including Illinois, Vermont and Florida.

But there is plenty of evidence the gun-rights lobby still has deep influence in state legislatures across the country.

It is sometimes hard to determine who is successful, since one side’s wins are not necessarily the other side’s losses. The National Rifle Association is not necessarily opposed to banning bump stocks or legislation keeping convicted domestic violence offenders from getting guns. In sheer numbers, the NRA says it still notched nearly as many victories as the gun-control side this state legislative session.
