Her airhead attributes alone should get this off the ground


Ocasio-Cortez Joins Joe Biden’s Climate Change Panel

Breitbart reports that America’s number one airhead has joined the Biden team on climate change (no, global warming — no, global cooling — no, global smarming).

House Oversight and Government Reform hearing on the "Trump Administration's Response to the Drug Crisis-Part II" on Capitol HillRep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), a chief advocate for the Green New Deal, will serve on former Vice President Joe Biden’s climate change panel for the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee’s campaign, Reuters first reported Wednesday.

Ocasio-Cortez, who endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) failed White House bid, will advise on global warming issues as one of the Vermont senator’s representatives on the Biden panel.

“She made the decision with members of the Climate Justice community – and she will be fully accountable to them and the larger advocacy community during this process,” an aide told Reuters. “She believes the movement will only be successful if we continue to apply pressure both inside and outside the system.”

The inclusion of the freshman “Squad” member on the council comes as Biden struggles to unite the establishment and far-left wings of the Democrat Party leading into the general election against President Donald Trump.

Although Ocasio-Cortez has yet to formally endorse Biden, the New York Democrat has said she would vote for the former vice president in November.

I personally draw a distinction between endorsement, endorsing a candidate and voting for them,” she told Vice News earlier this month. “I have not yet endorsed Vice President Biden, but I will be voting for him in November.”

Don’t forget, the last time she significantly spoke about climate change, she said we would have to have the intelligence of a sea sponge to believe her

Not that long ago, Representative Ocasio-Cortez first told us that the world would “end in 12 years” and then “Like the ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.”

And if that was not enough to bury her theories of climate change (no, global warming — no, global cooling — no, global smarming), there was the relevation from her chief of staff at the time, Saikat Chakrabarti, that the Green New Deal had nothing to do with climate and everything to do with introducing socialism to America.

Nineteen stories on how Democrats hurt citizens and help illegal aliens

Washington State to Make Illegal Immigrants Eligible for Student Loans

The Epoch Times reported in a 4 March 2020 article that the state of Washington has decided to make illegal aliens eligible for student loans.

WashingtonStateLawmakers are working on a bill that would enable illegal immigrants in the state of Washington to have access to student loans for college.

Senate Bill 6561, originally sponsored by a group of 11 Democrats, aims to set up a student loan program for Washington’s illegal immigrants, including recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, who are not eligible for federal financial aid.

The new aid program, according to the latest version of the bill, is intended to offer “low-interest student loans that are competitive with federal student loan programs.” It is not expected to interfere with state funding or aid for students who have legal immigration status, as the program would be funded by public and private donations and grants. The state of Washington will match donations up to $2 million every two years.

The bill passed the Senate last month in a 34-14 vote and is now being reviewed in the Democrat-majority House of Representatives. If passed in the House and signed into law by Gov. Jay Inslee, it would take effect on July 1, 2021.

The bill does not address the issue of whether the recipients, especially those who don’t have DACA, can repay their loans. The DACA program, created by the Obama administration in 2012, grants those who were illegally brought to the United States as children protection from deportation and renewable two-year work permits. Not having DACA usually means not having the ability to work to make student loan payments.

(Read more at The Epoch Times)

When there is no provision to make certain that the illegal pays the loan back, who do you think will be left on the hook?

Maybe it will be the same dupes that AOC wants to pick up the tab for flying illegals formerly deported due to crimes committed (refer to the article below on AOC’s bill The New Way Forward.)

Criminals would be protected from deportation under bill AOC and other House Democrats back

Tucker Carlson of Fox News says that the New Way Forward bill would end the deportation of rapists, robbers, and similar felonies. Additionally, there would be other deleterious effects of this ill-conceived bill.

Like the Constitution, this legislation is designed to create a whole new country. The bill would entirely remake our immigration system, with the explicit purpose of ensuring that criminals are able to move here, and settle here permanently, with impunity.

A document produced by Democrats to promote the bill says: “Convictions … should not lead to deportation.”

garciaKeep in mind, we’re not talking about convictions for double parking. The bill targets felony convictions – serious crimes that send you to prison for years. A press release from Rep., Jesus Garcia, D-Ill., is explicit about this.

Garcia brags that the bill will break the “prison to deportation pipeline.” How does the bill do that? Under current U.S. law, legal U.S. immigrants can be deported if they commit an “aggravated felony” or a “crime of moral turpitude” – that is, a vile, depraved act, like molesting a child. Under the New Way Forward Act, “crimes of moral turpitude” are eliminated entirely as a justification for deportation. And the category of “aggravated felony” gets circumscribed too.

What does that mean?

Consider this: Under current law, immigrants who commit serious crimes – such as robbery, fraud, or child sexual abuse – must be deported, regardless of the sentence they receive. Other crimes – less severe ones like racketeering – require deportation as long as the perpetrator receives at least a one-year sentence.

But if this bill passes the House and Senate and is signed into law by the president, there will no longer be any crimes that automatically require deportation. None.

And one crime – falsifying a passport – will be made immune from deportation, no matter what. Because apparently 9/11 never happened, and we no longer care about fake government documents.

If the New Way Forward Act becomes law, immigrants who commit those crimes and receive those sentences would remain in the country. They’ll all be eligible for citizenship one day, too.

But even that is understating the law’s effect. Even a five-year prison sentence won’t necessarily be enough to secure deportation. The bill would grant sweeping new powers to immigration judges, allowing them to nullify a deportation order.

The only requirement is that “the immigration judge finds such an exercise of discretion appropriate in pursuit of humanitarian purposes, to assure family unity, or when it is otherwise in the public interest.” In other words, anti-American immigration judges – and many of them are exactly that – would have a blank check to open the borders. No vote required.

Sound shocking to you? We’re just getting started. Current U.S. law makes drug addiction grounds for deportation, because why wouldn’t it? This bill would eliminate that statute.

Current law also states that those who have committed drug crimes abroad, or any “crimes involving moral turpitude,” are ineligible to immigrate here. The New Way Forward Act abolishes that statute.


The legislation doesn’t just make it harder to deport legal immigrants who commit crimes. It doesn’t just make it easier for criminals to legally move here. The bill would also effectively abolish all existing enforcement against illegal immigration.

To detain illegal immigrants, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would have to prove in court that the illegal immigrants are dangerous or a flight risk. But of course, ICE wouldn’t be allowed to use a detainee’s prior criminal behavior as proof he or she is dangerous. That’s banned.

ICE would have to overcome even more hurdles if the detainee claims to be gay or transgender, under 21, or can’t speak English and an interpreter isn’t immediately available.

In other words, it would be much harder to arrest an illegal alien than it is to arrest you. They’re the protected class here. You’re just some loser who’s paying for it all.

But believe it or not, we saved the nuttiest part for last. What could be more destructive than changing U.S. law, specifically to allow rapists, child molesters, and drug dealers to stay in America? How about this: Using taxpayer money to bring deported criminals back into America.

That’s right. This bill would not only abolish your right to control who lives in your own country, but it invents a new right in return: the “right to come home.”

The bill orders the government to create a “pathway for those previously deported to apply to return to their homes and families in the United States,” as long as they would have been eligible to stay under the new law.

The Department of Homeland Security must spend taxpayer dollars transporting convicted criminal illegal aliens into the United States. Who will be eligible for these free flights? Tens of thousands of people kicked out of this country for all kinds of crimes. Sexual abuse. Robbery. Assault. Drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, human trafficking.

From 2002 to 2018, 480,000 people were deported for illegal entry or reentry into America. And under this bill, you’d have to buy them all a plane ticket to come back. The tickets alone would cost about a billion dollars, and that’s before Democrats make you start paying for these criminals’ free health care, too. Which they plan to.

This New Way Forward is one insane Democrat pipe dream and a good reason to remove them from office

The New Way Forward provides illegal aliens:

  • Protection from being deported for committing felonies (rape, child molestation, robbery, …)
  • Protection from the crime of falsifying a passport
  • An opening of a path to citizenship for criminal illegal aliens
  • Protection by social justice judges (who would have latitude to open the borders)
  • A pathway for criminals from other nations to moving here
  • Protection from ICE (who would have its hands bound for even violent offenders)
  • A free ride back into America if they had been deported due to breaking US law

What does this bill do to support the common American worker (Hispanic, Black, or not)?

  • Nothing

AOC and her Squad stand against amendment protecting Americans from sexual predators

Townhall comments on how AOC and her squad have opposed an amendment that would protect Americans from sexual predators.

A large group of House Democrats prioritized woke culture over national security on Thursday during debate over a bill to protect the rights of Transportation Safety Administration employees. The bill’s intent is to level the playing field between TSA workers and other federal government employees.

One-hundred and seventy-four House Democrats voted against an amendment to the bill that will ensure that anyone found guilty of sexual misconduct, violent crime or suspected terrorism would not be hired by TSA, the Washington Free Beacon originally reported. The amendment was put forth by Democratic Congresswoman Lauren Underwood (D-IL) and supported by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).  The amendment passed, with 42 House Democrats joining the GOP minority.

SquadAgainstProtectingAmericansFromSexualAttacksLeading the opposition to the amendment, which largely serves public safety, was the progressive “squad” including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA); Speaker Pelosi elected not to vote on the amendment in question. Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) cited proven cases of sexual misconduct by TSA employees, and argued that Rep. Underwood’s amendment will keep predators off of federal payrolls, per Free Beacon:

“We have two options today: Adopt the Underwood amendment and keep sexual predators off of the federal payroll, or reject it and reward sexual predators with a paycheck from the taxpayer,” Rep. Lesko said.

Voting against a measure that would protect Americans from sexual predators is a new low for the squad.

If the Squad stands in support of a bill that allows sexual predators to remain, they are not the party of #MeToo

Along with Black Lives Matter actions that tries to victimize blacks, this support for sexual predators shows that Democrats support criminality, not your standard American.

Nonetheless, surely Democrats cannot be completely blind to the needs of legally voting American. Therefore, in my responses to the next sixteen or so articles, maybe I can track the degree of concern there might be for American citizens.

Chicago Ignored ICE Detainer On Illegal Alien — Now He’s Been Arrested For Allegedly Abusing A Toddler

The Daily Caller reported in a 29 February 2020 article that Chicago ignored an ICE detainer on an illegal alien who now has been arrested for abusing a toddler.

An illegal alien arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a toddler would have been in federal custody had the Chicago Police Department in 2019 honored an immigration detainer on him and not release him back into the community.

Christopher PuenteImmigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged an immigration detainer for Christopher Puente, 34-year-old Mexican national living in the U.S. illegally, with the Chicago Police Department in June 2019 upon his arrest for theft. However, that detainer request was ignored, and Puente has since been charged with sexually abusing a child, according to a press release by the agency.

An ICE spokesperson ripped Chicago leaders, noting that their lack of cooperation could have prevented Puente’s alleged crime.

“How many more victims must there be before lawmakers realize that sanctuary policies do not protect the innocent?” Robert Guadian, field office director of Chicago Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), asked in a statement. “Puente should have been in ICE custody last year and removed to his home country. Instead, irresponsible lawmaking allowed him to walk free and prey on our most vulnerable.”

In this case of a repeat offender illegal alien who was released by Democrats, the level of concern for this three-year-old seems to be low

Democrats, by releasing this repeat offender, showed little concern for law-abiding Americans, their offspring, and even the somewhat law-abiding community of illegal aliens. Still, who is counting?

I am. This is another loss for Americans and a win for illegals.

Chicago Mayor Defends Freeing Illegal Alien Accused of Child Sexual Assault

Breitbart lets the mayor of Chicago defend the release of an illegal alien who now has been accused of child sexual assault.

Lightfoot-PuenteChicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) and the Chicago Police Department are defending freeing an illegal alien convicted felon who allegedly sexually assaulted a three-year-old girl in a public bathroom.

As Breitbart News reported, 35-year-old illegal alien Christopher Puente from Mexico was charged in Chicago, Illinois, with one count of predatory criminal sexual assault after he allegedly locked himself in a McDonald’s bathroom stall with a three-year-old girl and proceeded to sexually assault her.

Puente could have been transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody by Chicago law enforcement officials in June 2019, but instead, the sanctuary city released the illegal alien back into the general public.

In statements to local media, Lightfoot and Chicago Police officials defended their release of Puente months before he allegedly sexually assaulted the three-year-old girl.

“If ICE is complaining, then they should do their job better,” Lightfoot said. She continued:

[ICE officials are] critical because we have said very clearly we are a welcoming city, a sanctuary city. Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE on any immigration-related business. And that’s affected their ability to conduct immigration raids across the city. But that’s exactly our intention. We have to make sure our police department is seen as a legitimate force in all our communities.

Likewise, Chicago Police officials defended their sanctuary city policy in a statement:

The Chicago Police Department remains committed to protecting all Chicago residents regardless of their immigration status. Our pledge to restrict ICE access to our information systems and our refusal to cooperate with ICE immigration enforcement measures has not changed.

PuenteTweet

Puente has a long criminal history in the U.S. after first illegally crossing the southern border sometime before 2011. Puente has two felony convictions for burglary in 2011 and 2017 and was convicted of forgery in 2012.

While crossing the Texas-Mexico border in Brownsville in December 2014, Puente was confronted by U.S. Border Patrol agents and claimed to be an American citizen, giving them a fraudulent birth certificate. Puente was already a convicted felon in the U.S.

Releasing the repeat offender and then blaming ICE displays a new low for a new Democrat administration in Chicago

The home of Obama really knows how to play into the Democrat model. The only problem may be that they are acting like Democrats too early in their administration. Treating your constituents like trash this early in the mayoral term may backfire.

Still, this does count as a loss for Americans and a win for illegals.

Illegal Alien, 31, Charged with Raping 14-Year-Old Girl in Idaho

Breitbart tells us how a 31-year-old illegal alien has come to be charged with raping a 14-year-old girl in Idaho.

An illegal alien has been charged with allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl in Caldwell, Idaho, after providing her with alcohol, according to law enforcement officials.

JaimeGalvanJaime Galvan, a 31-year-old illegal alien with an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer, was charged with raping the 14-year-old girl after the two met up and he served her two pre-mixed alcoholic cocktails, the Idaho Press reported.

The girl told police that Galvan told her to lay down after she became dizzy from the drinks. That’s when Galvan allegedly started touching the girl and raped her.

Galvan was asked to stop by the girl but continued, the girl told police. The girl said the rape occurred for about five minutes. Afterward, the girl said Galvan put her pants back on her and left the room.

Even Rocky Mountain Democrats seem to prefer pandering to illegal aliens rather than law-abiding citizens

Maybe they figure that the illegal alien felon community will be more likely to vote than the standard, law-abiding American. They could have a point there.

Nonetheless, this counts as a loss for the standard, law-abiding American.

Joe Biden Says ICE Shouldn’t Deport Drunk-Driving Illegal Aliens

The Daily Caller points out how Joe Biden says ICE shouldn’t deport drunk-driving illegal aliens.

Joe Biden Says ICE Shouldn’t Deport Drunk-Driving Illegal AliensFormer Vice President Joe Biden said Monday that he would not allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to deport illegal aliens who get caught drunk driving.

Biden said during a 2020 election forum with Vice News that if he wins the presidency he will issue an executive order that only allows ICE agents to deport individuals who have committed felonies — “and I don’t consider drunk driving a felony,” Biden clarified.

“I would hold ICE agents accountable if in fact they stepped over my executive orders, which is no arrest of any kind outside of the schools,” Biden said. “You know, look at the — one of the things that’s happening is, particularly for the latino and hispanic kids, is the incredible pressure on them in terms of their sense of security.”

Since Hunter Biden has a history as a drug fiend, maybe there is a family reason for Joe supporting drunk driving

While you can never tell what gaffe-a-minute Joe Biden will say, maybe there might be a little bit of reasoning behind this desire to exempt illegal aliens from deportation when they get caught driving drunk.

On the other hand, as a Christian, I can get behind a policy of forgiveness (as long as the administration also includes a policy of recompense for those harmed). However, without some type of recompense, there can be no forgiveness.

Nonetheless, this response accounts for the fifth point since I started counting after the third article. In all of the cases, the American citizens came out on the losing end while illegal aliens won.

New York Democrats Move to Register Illegal Aliens, Non-Citizens to Vote Unless They Opt Out

Breitbart points out how New York Democrats have moved to register illegal aliens and non-citizens to vote unless those people (who cannot legally vote) opt out.

New York State Senate Democrats have advanced a plan that will automatically register to vote all residents who apply for a driver’s licenses — which now includes non-citizens and illegal aliens — unless they “opt-out.”

NewYorkMapOn Thursday, Senate Senate Democrats passed legislation that will automatically register all residents who obtain driver’s licenses through the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMVs). As of this year, illegal aliens are able to obtain driver’s licenses in New York, indicating that illegal aliens and non-citizens will only be excluded from the state voter rolls if they check the “opt-out” box before applying for a license.

New York Democrats have argued the law has safeguards in place to prevent non-citizens from registering to vote, including a provision that says DMVs shall not send voter registrations of ineligible applicants to the State Board of Elections:

Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, no agency designated under this section shall transmit to the State Board of Elections any application for registration for a person that is, by virtue of data collected by the agency during the same application for services or change of address or name transaction, demonstrably ineligible to register or pre-register to vote by reason of age or not being a citizen of the United States. [Emphasis added]

Effectively, the New York law would place the burden to opt out of voter registration on non-citizens and illegal aliens, similar to that of California’s automatic voter registration law.

New York Democrats have claimed the legislation will “reduce the incidence of voter registration fraud and voting fraud,” and “prevent erroneous disfranchisement of eligible citizens, promote greater participation of eligible voters in elections…”

Americans lose when Democrats dilute the vote with illegal votes

When Democrats bring in illegal aliens to vote, it take away your vote. Therefore, once again, law-abiding Americans lose and illegal aliens win at the hands of Democrats.

Illegal Aliens Celebrate New Jersey Giving Them Driver’s Licenses

Breitbart shows a video of illegal aliens celebrating New Jersey giving them drivers licenses.

Illegal aliens in New Jersey celebrated and cheered this week after obtaining the right to a driver’s license following the passage of a law that will be signed by Gov. Phil Murphy (D).

NewJerseyMapOn Monday, following a statewide initiative by the open borders lobby, the New Jersey State House and State Senate passed a bill that will allow illegal aliens living in the sanctuary state to obtain driver’s licenses — similar to that of the laws in California and New York.

After the legislation’s passage, illegal aliens chanted “Sí se puede!” which translates to “Yes we can!” and posted hashtags online such as “#LicensesForAll!”

There are roughly half a million illegal aliens living in the state of New Jersey, and nearly 340,000 of those illegal aliens will be eligible for driver’s licenses within the next three years following Murphy’s signing of the law.

(Read more at Breitbart)

Because licenses can allow the illegal alien to acquire an undeserved voter registration and other benefits, this does not help the rest of us

The driver’s license acts as a gateway document. From that little document, access to our voter registration system, our transportation control system (which was meant to make our flights more secure after 9/11), and other systems comes open.

Again, Americans lose to the illegal aliens.

Maryland Sanctuary Counties to Free Accused Illegal Alien Child Rapists, Murderers, Child Abusers

Breitbart published a 24 November 2019 article pointing out how Maryland sanctuary counties were set to release accused illegal aliens accused of raping children, murdering, and abusing children.

Maryland sanctuary counties are expected to release into the United States six illegal aliens accused of child rape, assault, murder, and child abuse, federal immigration officials say.

Prince-George-CountyIllegalsThe sanctuary counties of Prince George County, Maryland, and Montgomery County, Maryland, may soon release six illegal aliens who are accused of a number of violent crimes against children and American citizens, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.

Jaycob Kidlat, an illegal alien, has been charged with five counts of sexual abuse of a minor, rape of a child under the age of 14-years-old, and third-degree sexual offense. ICE placed a detainer on him in June and it is unclear when he will be released, and if he will be freed rather than turned over to federal agents.

Likewise, illegal alien Alpha Ibrahimbah Mansaray has been charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and reckless driving, as well as a series of drug crime charges. Mansaray was arrested in September and ICE has a detainer on him.

Illegal alien Luis Miguel Cabrera was arrested in September 2018 in one of the two sanctuary counties on charges of child abuse resulting in the death of the child, child sex abuse, and rape of a child under the age of 14. ICE has placed a detainer on him.

Illegal aliens Jaun Rivas-Montano and Manuel Carballos-Morales were both arrested this year on charges such as child sex abuse, child abuse, child molestation, and second-degree child abuse. Both have ICE detainers, but their release dates by the sanctuary counties are unknown.

Releasing rapists, murders, child abusers, and other felons into the community when the community doesn’t have to endure those criminals is a loss for the community

We know that the recidivism rate for many violent crimes (especially those centering on sex) remains high. Therefore, if criminals convicted of these crimes can be removed from the nation when their sentence has been completed, then the nation wins.

In this case, since these Maryland counties have chosen to protect felons rather than cooperate with the federal government, Americans lose and illegal aliens win.

Illegal Alien Accused of Physically Abusing, Raping His Step-Children

Breitbart points out how an illegal alien has been accused of raping his step children.

An illegal alien has been arrested after being on the run from law enforcement for alleged child abuse and child sex crime charges.

JoseBulmaroCruz-GuillenJose Bulmaro Cruz-Guillen, an illegal alien from Mexico, was arrested evading child abuse and child sex crime charges for incidents that occurred in 2014 and 2019, according to WBRC.com. The illegal alien had been twice arrested last year for crossing illegally through the United States-Mexico border.

According to law enforcement officials, Cruz-Guillen was investigated in 2014 for allegedly repeatedly punching his four-year-old stepson in the face and on his body.

Then, years later in 2019, Cruz-Guillen was indicted for allegedly sexually abusing his stepdaughter for years. The abuse allegedly involved first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, and sexual abuse of a child less than 12-years-old.

If the step-children were American, Americans lose

If the step-children were American, Americans lose. If the step-children had to be rescued by Americans, Americans lose. Finally, since the family has been immersed in the American community and has built relationships there, Americans lose by proxy.

11-Year-Old Allegedly Raped Repeatedly By Two Illegal Immigrants

The Daily Caller reports in a 14 August 2019 article that two illegal aliens raped a 11-year-old girl.

Two illegal immigrants have been charged with second degree rape of the same 11-year-old girl in Maryland.

Montgomery County Police arrested Mauricio Barrera-Navidad, 29, of Damascus, Maryland, and Carlos Palacios-Amaya, 28, of Gaithersburg, Maryland, for allegedly raping the same under-aged girl on multiple occasions, WJLA reports.

The victim reported the instances of rape to a school social worker in July.

The victim was introduced to Palacios-Amaya in September 2018 through her older brother, according to WJLA. Palacios-Amaya then reportedly raped her several times over the following months, authorities say.

On one occasion, Palacios-Amaya used a cell phone to record sexual acts with the 11-year-old, according to court documents. Investigators reportedly found several images on Palacios-Amaya’s cell phone of himself and the victim.

For my part, I would count this a loss for the little girl from Maryland.

Illinois Sanctuary County Frees 1K Criminal Illegal Aliens into U.S. in 2019

Breitbart reports that an Illinois sanctuary county freed 1,000 criminal illegal aliens into the community during 2019.

Cook-County-sanctuaryThe sanctuary county of Cook County, Illinois, released more than 1,000 criminal illegal aliens back into American communities in fiscal year 2019, federal data finds.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials revealed this week that Cook County — which has shielded criminal illegal aliens from deportation since at least September 2011 — freed about 1,070 criminal illegal aliens back into neighboring communities in fiscal year 2019.

“The most concerning issue about working in an area that refuses to cooperate with ICE is not only that we do not know which criminal aliens are being released from custody, but the public doesn’t know either,” ICE official Henry Lucero said in a statement.

ICE officials detailed the cases of illegal aliens Rasheed Abass, a 50-year-old from South Africa, and Kennete Acevedo Ortiz, a 28-year-old from Nicaragua, who were free from Cook County custody despite ICE agents requesting they be turned over to them for arrest and deportation.

Abass was arrested in June 2019 and charged with indecent exposure. A month later, Abass was arrested for assault. After each arrest, ICE requested that Abass be turned over to them, but the requests were ignored and he was freed back in the community. His current location is unknown

In this article on the Cook County release of 1,000 illegal alien criminals into the community, several things can be learned

First, from the picture, it becomes evident that “illegal” is not a race. Therefore, being opposed to allowing illegal aliens access to our nation cannot be racist.

Second, because Cook County protected the illegals rather than reporting them to ICE, Democrats in Cook County must value illegal aliens over voters.

Boulder County Police ask public for help after releasing illegal alien charged with child sexual assault

The Daily Caller chronicles how Boulder County Colorado police force had to ask for help after releasing an illegal alien.

A Boulder County, Colorado, man charged with child sexual assault and wanted by local law enforcement is living in the U.S. illegally, the Daily Caller News Foundation exclusively confirmed.

The Lafayette Police Department and the Boulder County District Attorney’s office are asking the public for help in locating Francisco Barraza-Porras, a 47-year-old man who was released from custody, skipped his court date and is at large. ICE revealed to the DCNF that Barraza-Porras is an illegal alien, and Boulder County officials confirmed that they do not honor ICE administrative warrants.

The incident showcases the consequences when sanctuary jurisdictions fail to transfer custody of an illegal alien over to federal immigration authorities.

Barraza-Porras, who was last known to be living in Lafayette, Colorado, was arrested Jan. 2 and charged with multiple counts of sexual assault on a child. Instead of keeping him in custody or handing him over to ICE, local law enforcement released him back into the public with an order to appear to appear before court on March 2.

The first step to getting help is to ask for help; however, these police might have started by not releasing the criminal

When politically-correct police departments start by releasing criminals into the community rather than removing them from the nation, the nation loses.

San Francisco Ignored ICE And Released An Illegal Alien Who Had Been Arrested Seven Times

The Daily Caller explains how politically-correct San Francisco ignored ICE to release an illegal alien who had been arrested seven times.

San Francisco ignored multiple pleas by federal immigration authorities to transfer custody of a criminally convicted illegal alien, revealing how far city leaders will go to refuse cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations officers apprehended an unnamed illegal alien near a courthouse in San Francisco, California, on Tuesday, the agency revealed in a press release. The arrest marked the latest development in an ongoing saga between ICE and San Francisco officials regarding this particular alien, whom they refused to hand over despite his extensive criminal history.

The illegal alien, who was not identified by the agency, had been arrested by local law enforcement at least seven times in the past five years. ICE had lodged eight detainers with law enforcement following his arrests, but the agency said that because of “sanctuary laws,” he was able to be released back into the community each time.

“For many years, the city and county of San Francisco has refused to cooperate with ICE — much to their own detriment,” said ICE San Francisco Field Office Director David Jennings.

Eighth Illegal Alien Has Been Charged With A Sexual Crime In Montgomery County, Maryland

The Daily Caller points out how an eighth illegal alien has been charged with a sexual crime in Montgomery County, Maryland.

A Nigerian national has been charged in Montgomery County, Maryland, for rape, marking the eighth illegal alien to be charged with rape or another sexual crime in the county since July 25.

Oluwakayode AdebusuyiOluwakayode Adebusuyi, a 26-year-old man from Nigeria, allegedly raped an intoxicated woman in her car, according to ABC 7 News. Federal Immigration authorities confirmed that Adebusuyi is an illegal alien. He lives in Fairfax, Virginia, and is currently being held in detention on $250,000 bond.

A statement from federal immigration authorities confirmed that the Nigerian national is living in the U.S. unlawfully.

“On Sept. 1, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County Detention Center on unlawfully present Nigerian national Oluwakayode Adewole Adebusuyi. Adebusuyi was arrested Aug. 28 on local charges, including rape,” a statement from ICE read.

This is not the first time Adebusuyi has been in trouble with the law for sexual crimes.

He was charged with a second degree assault, a fourth degree sex offense, and false imprisonment in August 2018, according to arrest documents obtained by ABC 7. However, prosecutors dropped the charges for unknown reasons. Adebusuyi has since worked as a ride-share driver.

To quote Yogi Berra, “It’s deja vous, all over again.”

While we don’t know that the woman who was drunk in the car was an American, we do know that her attacker was an illegal alien. So, in this case, we really cannot say that the American lost while the illegal alien was promoted by the Democrats.

Still, America operates on a somewhat civil society. This constituted an attack on civil society. Therefore, in truth, the score here for work-a-day Americans is 0 and the illegals and Democrats pull one over again.

New York City Law Allows Fines Up To $250,000 For Saying ‘Illegal Alien’

The Daily Caller reported on a New York City law that allows fines up to $250,000 for saying “illegal alien.”

New York City may fine individuals up to $250,000 if they use the term “illegal alien” in a derogatory way, according to an announcement from the city’s Commission on Human Rights this week.

“BREAKING: New York City has made it illegal to threaten to call ICE based on a discriminatory motive or to tell someone ‘go back to your country.’ Hate has no place here,” the City of New York tweeted Thursday.

In addition, “derogatory use of the word ‘illegal alien’” can result in a fine.

“The guidance states that the use of the term ‘illegal alien,’ among others, when used with the intent to demean, humiliate, or harass a person, is illegal under the law.”

Democratic Mayor Bill De Blasio promote the new policy on Twitter and warned others that they will face “consequences” for insulting illegal immigrants.

So who wins when liberals curtial conservative American’s free speech rights?

That is a good question. In my eye, nobody wins — because this continual lack of civility from the left needs to be met with an equal force from the right.

As made evident by the incivility throughout the Kavanaugh hearings, the Trump impeachment, and all matters following those events, it seems no Democrat remaining in the House has any desire to fight fairly. For any Republican to not match that force with equal force will be a losing proposition.

So, again, Americans 0, Democrats and illegal aliens 1.

Massachusetts City Allowing Illegal Aliens To Drive Without A License

The Daily Caller points out how Cambridge, Massachusetts has been allowing illegal aliens to drive without licenses.

City councilors in Cambridge, Massachusetts, voted to prohibit police officers from arresting illegal aliens if they are caught operating a vehicle without a license.

Under a newly passed city ordinance in Cambridge, residents are still legally required to carry a driver’s license if they are operating a vehicle, but local law enforcement has been ordered not to arrest illegal aliens caught driving without identification, Boston 25 News first reported.

The city ordinance, ordained Feb. 10, marks what appears to be the most lenient policy for undocumented immigrants and roadway rules.

The city councillors who passed the ordinance say it’s necessary given increased immigration enforcement emanating from the White House.

“We need to protect our community members from a federal government that’s out of control,” Cambridge City Councilor Quinton Zondervan said of the rule. “There are no other reasons for the police to arrest someone, give them a court summons instead which keeps them out of the clutches of the Trump administration.”

While this presents a better option than providing illegal aliens with licenses, it only does so by the breadth of a hair

Cambridge may not be supplying illegals with drivers’ licenses (and thereby providing them access to various systems, as noted above). However, by allowing them to drive without licenses, they are likely taking any citizen unlucky enough to be involved in an accident with an illegal (that is, they are taking a bit of their car, their money, and their raised auto insurance rates).

So, Americans lose at the hands of illegals and Democrats again.

AOC wants illegals answering census

Townhall reports that AOC wants illegal aliens to be answering the census now that the courts have ruled that the census cannot ask about citizenship.

AOC_isAnIdiotTwoEveryone saw this coming. Democrats fought tooth and nail to keep census forms from inquiring about an individual’s citizenship status. They won, so now people like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are urging illegal aliens to fill out census forms so Democrats like herself can keep their bogus congressional districts. According to reports, it’s likely that New York state will lose a congressional seat as a result of the 2020 Census. State Democrats, who would be tasked with redrawing New York’s congressional districts, are reportedly salivating at the opportunity to cut AOC’s seat since the progressive congresswoman is often out of step with Democrats in the state.

On NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on Thursday, AOC said it was important for everyone in America, including illegal aliens, to fill out census forms for the purpose of congressional representation and funding for federal programs.

“We’re all going to get mailed a prompt to fill out the census in the next two weeks or so, and so what I think is really important is that we all fill this out,” AOC lectured the audience. “It happens once every ten years. Every single person, no matter your documentation status, no matter your housing status, income, etc., is to be counted, and it determines how much our schools are going to get funded, how much infrastructure gets invested, and of course how many members of Congress each community gets.”

AOC went on to say that in some parts of New York City the self-reporting is only half of what she and her progressive allies think it should be.

In this last case, AOC wants the illegals in her district to be counted

By having the illegals in her district counted, they can receive the benefits due to Americans.

Twelve stories that show the danger of Sanders


  1. Sanders says he was briefed on Russian effort to help campaign

The Hill reports that Bernie Sanders knows that Russians have schemed to help his campaign.

BernieScreamsSen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Friday acknowledged that he was briefed by U.S. intelligence officials about Russian attempts to interfere in the 2020 elections, with The Washington Post reporting that Russia has sought to help his presidential campaign.

The Post’s report was published the day after The New York Times reported that House lawmakers were told by U.S. officials last week that Russia was also attempting to interfere in the 2020 elections to help the campaign of President Trump.

Sanders told reporters on the campaign trail Friday that he was briefed on Russian interference efforts “about a month ago,” speculating that the news of potential Russian interference efforts came out now because it was on the eve of the Nevada caucuses.

“It was not clear what role they were going to play. We were told that Russia, maybe other countries, are gonna get involved in this campaign,” Sanders said.

“The ugly thing that they are doing, and I’ve seen some of their tweets and stuff, is they try to divide us up. That’s what they did in 2016,” he added.

Sanders described Russian President Vladimir Putin as a “thug” in a statement on Friday, emphasizing that he stands “firmly against” Russian interference efforts.

(Read more at The Hill)

Other reports have Sanders claiming no involvement by the Russians

Other sources suggest that Sanders either denies or deflects any suggestion that Russians might be influencing people to vote for him (as we have heard about President Trump by the main stream media for over four years). This, along with a lack of questions from the main stream media on how many of his policies will limit our rights and kill our economy, show how journalists are actively covering for Bernie Sanders.

However, if the “journalists” wanted to scare up the real sleeper Soviet agents, why don’t they look at the guy who recently praised Fidel, who honeymooned in Moscow, and who claimed Russian-style bread lines were a good thing?

  1. Washington Post reports Russian help for Bernie

Townhall points to the Washington Post as they report on Russian help for the Bernie campaign.

Bernie_SandersAre we seeing a pattern here yet, liberal media? Are we starting to get it when it comes to Russia? No. You people are still a bunch of insufferable morons on this stuff. For years, you thought the Trump campaign and the Kremlin colluded during the 2016 election, despite there being zero evidence to back up that allegation. It was a myth. It was a hoax. It was based on a shoddy piece of political opposition research funded by the Clinton campaign that was exposed as bunk not by one, but two reports. Ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller trashed it as did the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Still, the Left has been consumed by Russophobia. Collusion delusion is still a thing, but now the shots are being fired inside the ship. U.S. officials informed Sen. Bernie Sanders, the frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic nomination, that the Russians are trying to help his campaign (via WaPo):

U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.

President Trump and lawmakers on Capitol Hill have also been informed about the Russian assistance to the Vermont senator, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence.

It is not clear what form that Russian assistance has taken. U.S. prosecutors found a Russian effort in 2016 to use social media to boost Sanders campaign against Hillary Clinton, part of a broader effort to hurt Clinton, sow dissension in the American electorate and ultimately help elect Donald Trump.

“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement to The Washington Post. “My message to Putin is clear: stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.

That’s it. Based on the Left’s rules on this nonsense, Bernie is a Russian agent. His trips to the USSR in the past were really meetings with his KGB handlers.

It seems only fair that chants of “Bernie, Bernie, Bernie” should be countered with “Russia, Russia, Russia”

sandershoneymooninMoscowPhotos of Bernie in his underwear at a Russian restaurant should be unfurled at every Bernie rally. Chants of “Russia, Russia, Russia” should meet Bernie as he enters the stage.

Just to be fair, the protesters should also include some of Bernie’s words of wisdom like “bread lines can be a good thing,” “wartime occasionally necessitated undemocratic measures,” and other choice bits of knowledge.

  1. Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez push bill to ‘ban fracking nationwide’ by 2025

Breitbart reported in a 3 February 2020 article that Sanders and AOC want to ban fracking by 2025.

oilfieldAn anti-fracking bill crafted by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) aims to end the practice altogether, making it illegal “on all onshore and offshore land in the United States” by Jan. 1, 2025.

Left-wing actor Mark Ruffalo teased the bill last week, allowing Sanders to jokingly knock him for “ruining the surprise” of the new fracking legislation.

“I don’t mind if @MarkRuffalo spoils his own movies. But please, don’t ruin the surprise of our new legislation with Rep. @AOC, @SenJeffMerkley and @RepDarrenSoto,” Sanders wrote with an accompanying clip of the Avengers actor evidently “spoiling” the upcoming legislation:

The bill, according to the Hillaims to end fracking altogether, revoking permits for “wells where fracking takes place and that are within 2,500 feet of a home, school or other ‘inhabited structure’” beginning February 1, 2021. It would also “immediately prevent federal agencies from issuing federal permits for expanded fracking, new fracking, new pipelines, new natural gas or oil export terminals and other gas and oil infrastructure.”

It would make the practice, which Ocasio-Cortez has identified as the “leading contributor to our climate emergency,” illegal by January 1, 2025.

“Fracking is a danger to our water supply. It’s a danger to the air we breathe, it has resulted in more earthquakes, and it’s highly explosive,” Sanders said in a statement, according to the Hill. To top it all off, it’s contributing to climate change.”

“If we are serious about clean air and drinking water, if we are serious about combating climate change, the only safe and sane way to move forward is to ban fracking nationwide,” he continued.

Critics of Sanders have defended the practice, warning that its elimination would “spike household energy costs and hurt farmers and manufacturers.”

American Petroleum Institute spokeswoman Bethany Aronhalt told the Hill:

Banning a safe, successful method of developing energy would erase a generation of American energy progress and in the process destroy millions of U.S. jobs, spike household energy costs and hurt farmers and manufacturers.

“Thanks to fracking, the United States is the global leader in reducing carbon emissions,” Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) tweeted in response to the announcement:

Sanders has long maintained the need for the elimination of fracking, promising to ban it during his presidential bid in 2016.

Rather than banning fracking, maybe start by forcing all socialists to register their party affiliation at their employers

Maybe even the union leadership might want to know who has decided to vote away their Cadillac-health care packages. Surely the owners of the bus company or trucking company might want to know who voted to exponentially increase their costs of operation (electric buses and semi-trucks don’t fall off of the lemon tree). What’s more, I am sure that the biggest employers in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Louisiana would be interested in who voted to put them out of business.

  1. Bernie Sanders has already drafted ‘dozens of executive orders’ to bypass Congress if elected President

Lifezette pointed out in a 30 January 2020 article that Bernie had already drafted dozens of executive orders to bypass Congress.

BernieTweetDisturbing campaign documents have just come to light showing that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ staffers have already begun preparing “dozens of executive orders” so that he can bypass Congress in the first days of his presidency, should he win the election in November.

The documents, which were obtained by the Washington Post, show that Sanders’ has executive orders prepared on a wide range of issues that include the environment, immigration, and the economy.

Sanders’ team has prepared over a dozen options for reversing President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, with one of them being the immediate halting of construction on the border wall. Another potential executive order would remove the limit for the number of refugees that could be admitted to the United States, while a third would reinstate Barack Obama’s DREAMER program, which granted legal status to undocumented immigrants who were brought to this country as children.

This is just the beginning of the executive orders that Sanders has planned. One order legalizes marijuana in the entirety of the United States, and another would allow the U.S. to import prescription drugs from Canada. Sanders would also declare climate change to be a national emergency as soon as he took office, and he would ban the export of crude oil.

This shows that Sanders is anticipating that Republicans will keep control of the Senate come November, and that he has no intention of letting this stop him from achieving his radical agenda.

Another document obtained by the post was written by Faiz Shakir, Sanders’s campaign manager; Warren Gunnels, a senior adviser; and Josh Orton, the campaign policy director, who all urge him to use the executive orders to undo the many “wrongs” of Trump’s presidency.

“We cannot accept delays from Congress on some of the most pressing issues, especially those like immigration where Trump has governed with racism and for his own corrupt benefit,” they said.

For all who claimed Trump to be a dictator, they had better speak up here

For all of the freedom-loving people who protested Obama’s and Trump’s use of executive order, I hope that you will stand up against this misuse of executive power.

However, I also have a number of issues against the things that it seems that Mr. Sanders would write his orders on. On these items, there are several contentions that I have with Mr. Sanders’ issue on the “Muslim ban.” First, Mr. Sanders knows that the restriction on travel to the United States only held back peoples from countries that acted as sources of terrorism (Iran, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, North Korea, and Venezuela). Second, for Mr. Sanders to call this a “Muslim ban” ignores the majority religions of the last two countries on the list.

Regarding the rest of your laundry list of executive orders, Mr. Sanders, you need to go to Congress to propose laws and have them work their way through Congress. Despite your adoration of socialism, this is not a dictatorship, yet.

  1. A problem in the Nevada caucuses

Townhall mentions through a 22 February 2020 article the problems in the Nevada caucuses.

The results during the Iowa Caucuses were nothing shy of a mess and a large part of that had to do with the math worksheets used to calculate how delegates were awarded. There appeared to be some rounding errors and confusion about what happens when the number of potential delegates a precinct had versus how many were actually awarded.

Fast forward a few weeks later and we’re seeing issues yet again. This time they’re somewhat math-based.

According to MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki, Democratic voters’ initial preferences were for Sen. Bernie Sanders (35 percent), former Vice President Joe Biden (17 percent) and former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg (15 percent). Once votes had to be reallocated, Sanders’ preference spiked to 42 percent, Biden’s jumped to 19 percent and Buttigieg remained the same. Those numbers were based on 10 spotters throughout the state. As of now the Democratic Party has yet to call any precincts.

The National Election Pool, a consortium of various media outlets, have reporters stationed across the Silver State. According to Kornacki, six reporters have reported issues with the caucus process.

“They have reports from six of their reporters, six of their reporters out of 63 sites that they have these reporters at. Six out of 63 or about 10 percent, who have said that they have witnessed issues at precincts with incorporating the early vote with the same-day caucus activity,” the MSNBC reporter explained. “Remember, 75,000 early votes cast statewide. They’re trying to take those results from folks who voted days ago and merge it with what’s happening in real-time with the people who show up and break up with these groups. So at 10 percent of these locations where the National Election Pool has folks witnessing this activity, they say they have been seeing this issue.”

Kornacki said those issues could be part of the reason the Nevada Democratic Party has failed to call any precincts. The projects are based on spotters who watched the vote take place, recorded the results and called it into the National Election Pool.

The article above more accurately points to a Democrat party where nobody got 50% of the votes from socialist Democrats

With Joe Biden in the headlines weeks ago due to his bragging about forcing the Ukraine government into firing the prosecutor who was investigating Burisma and Biden’s son, Hunter — one wonders how many moderates who would have voted for him have now decided to throw in the towel.

Considering that Buttigieg wrote an essay praising the socialist Bernie (or all of the similar answers that came from any of the Democrat contenders at the debates), maybe we should not expect a dime’s worth of difference between Bernie and Mayor Pete.

  1. Three of the five takeaways from the Nevada caucuses

The Hill points to five takeaways it thinks can be derived from the Nevada caucuses. Here are excerpts from the first three takeaways that The Hill supposes.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won a resounding victory at the Nevada caucuses on Saturday, putting together a coalition of young people, Latinos and working-class voters to cement his status as front-runner in the race for the Democratic nomination.

Here are five takeaways from the Nevada caucuses.

Sanders has a diverse coalition that could carry him to the nomination

In the 2016 primary, Sanders struggled mightily with voters of color, who broke in large numbers for Hillary Clinton and ultimately propelled her to the nomination.

Since then, Sanders has invested heavily in outreach to racial minorities and he’s accumulated a diverse team of dynamic surrogates.

Those efforts are paying off in 2020, as Sanders has built a diverse coalition of Latinos, young people, and union members, who drove him to a huge victory in Nevada, the most diverse state to vote so far.

With 60 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders stood at 46 percent support, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden at 19.6, former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 15.3, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 10.1.

And Sanders’s diverse base of support makes him even more imposing heading into Super Tuesday on March 3, when about one-third of the delegates will be allocated, with most of them coming from the racially diverse states of California and Texas.

Rivals have an uphill climb in stopping Sanders after decisive Nevada victory

There is not much positive news coming out of Nevada for the also-rans.

Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg has dramatically outperformed expectations so far, narrowly winning more delegates at the Iowa caucuses and barely falling short in New Hampshire.

But those predominantly white states are not reflective of the racial make-up of the states that have yet to vote. Buttigieg, along with Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), the third-place finisher in New Hampshire, have not shown an ability to make inroads with voters of color.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) raised an astonishing amount of money in the days since she took down former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg at the Las Vegas debate. But she’s poised to finish a distant fourth place in Nevada, and it’s unclear where she’ll be able to defeat Sanders, who will be looking to win in her home state of Massachusetts on Super Tuesday.

Biden’s support among black voters appears to be on the decline.

Bloomberg has unlimited money and is the only candidate on the airwaves in all 14 Super Tuesday states, but his disastrous debate performance raises real questions about whether he’ll be able to compete.

The Buttigieg and Bloomberg campaigns are already warning that Sanders might be headed for an “insurmountable” delegates lead by March 3.

Democrats are enthusiastic and turning out in record numbers

Democrats can breathe a sigh of relief — the lower than expected turnout for the Iowa caucuses was a mirage.

More than 176,000 people caucused in Iowa earlier this month, a slight increase from 2016, but nothing close to the blowout numbers from 2008, when the Hawkeye State sent former President Obama on his way to the nomination.

Democrats assumed that caucus and primary turnout would be gangbusters, driven by grassroots energy to defeat President Trump.

But New Hampshire painted a different picture, with a record 300,000 people turning out, blowing past the 288,000 who voted in the 2008 primary.

In many ways, this paints too rosy a picture for Bernie

However, a too-rosy picture of Bernie might motivate Trump supporters to get off of dead center. That would be one of the better outcomes of this article.

  1. MSNBC contributor calls Bernie supporters racist liberals

One America News Network reports how Jason Johnson called Bernie supporters racist liberals.

An MSNBC contributor sparked backlash this week after he referred to some of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (D-Vt.) campaign staffers as “an island of misfit black girls.”

During a recent interview, Jason Johnson spoke at great length about Sanders’ supporters and, more specifically, the demographics involved.

“I do find it fascinating that racist, liberal whites seem to love them some Bernie Sanders. (They) consistently and always have a problem with any person of color who doesn’t want to follow the orthodoxy of their lord and savior, Bernie Sanders. The man cares nothing for intersectionality. I don’t care how many people from the island of misfit black girls you throw out there to defend you on a regular basis, it doesn’t mean your campaign is serious.” – Jason Johnson, MSNBC contributor

This assessment fits with the words of the Bernie staffer

If you refer back to the words of Kyle Jurek, Bernie staffer who was recorded by Project Veritas, this assessment somewhat fits.

  1. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews compares Sanders’ Nevada win to France’s fall to Nazis, draws calls for his firing

Fox News relays the words of MSNBC‘s Chris Matthews who suggested Sander’s Nevada win was like the Nazi win over France.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews drew ire on social media Saturday after he compared the Nevada Democratic caucus victory of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders to France’s fall to the Nazis during World War II.

“I’m reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940,” Matthews said during the network’s caucus coverage. “And the general calls up Churchill and says, ‘It’s over,’ and Churchill says, ‘How can it be? You got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over.’”

The backlash on Twitter was swift and severe, with many commenters calling for Matthews to resign or be fired. Many pointed out that Sanders’ family includes survivors of the Holocaust.

Here, however, Mr. Matthews could have made his point without using a Nazi reference

If he had just said “the race is over” or told a story about the ending of some central event, he could have made the same point. Reference to Nazis cannot be justified.

  1. Buttigieg takes aim at intractable socialist Sanders

Townhall comments on Mayor Pete’s suggestion that Bernie is an intractable socialist.

It did not take long for the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg, to target the winner of Saturday’s Democratic caucuses in Nevada. Socialist Bernie Sanders is projected to win a decisive victory in the Silver State, sending the media into a frenzy over renewed concerns that nominating a socialist would all but guarantee a second term for President Trump. In a speech following his apparent loss in Nevada, Buttigieg told a crowd of supporters that nominating Bernie Sanders would not sit well with the American people.

Buttigieg said he believes the best way to defeat President Trump “is to broaden and galvanize the majority that supports [Democrats] on the critical issues.”

“Senator Sanders believes in an inflexible, ideological revolution that leaves out most Democrats, not to mention most Americans,” Buttigieg warned. “I believe we can defeat Trump and deliver for the American people by empowering the American people to make their own health care choices with medicare for all who want it. Senator Sanders believes in taking away that choice, removing people from having that option of a private plan and replacing it with a public plan whether you want it or not. … but that is different from Senator Sanders’ vision of capitalism as the root of all evil that would go beyond reform and reorder the economy in ways that most Democrats, not to mention most Americans, don’t support.”

It’s going to be harder for Pete Buttigieg to say most Democrats don’t support the Vermont socialist the longer Sanders remains the party’s front-runner. Buttigieg called for an end to the so-called “viscousness and bullying” of the Trump era, warning that a Sanders’ presidency would only continue the toxicity and polarization of our nation’s politics.

Prior to the Bernie wins, Buttigieg and Sanders were singing from the same sheet

In the last few weeks, both Mayor Pete and Bernie suggested that Democrats must be exclusively pro-abortion. Both Mayor Pete and Bernie (and all of the Democrats on the debate stage) want to extend health benefits to illegal aliens.

  1. Bernie Sanders Says U.S. Is Worse than Communist China in Jailing People

Breitbart quotes Bernie Sanders in a 22 February 2020 article where Bernie says the USA is worse than the communist Chinese in jailing people.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said during a rally in Texas on Saturday evening that the United States was worse than Communist China in regards to the number of people in jail — a figure that does not count Muslim Uyghurs and others detained in China’s detention camps.

“This is the United States of America. We should not be having more people in jail than any other country on earth including Communist China four times our size,” the self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist said.

According to the World Prison Brief’s website, the U.S. has more than two million people in jail, while China has 1,700,000 in jail.

However, China’s figure does not count pre-trial detainees and those in administrative detention. The website said that China had more than 650,000 people held in detention centers in China in 2009, and if still true, that would mean the total prison population would be at least 2,350,000 — surpassing the U.S.

NBC News reported in October that approximately a million Uyghur Muslims are detained in China, according to the U.S. government and human rights organizations.

Nonetheless, Sanders suggested the U.S. was worse than China, for its “racist and broken criminal justice system.”

“The people in jail, as everybody here knows, are disproportionately African American, Latino, and Native Americans,” he said.

He said he would invest in more education for kids instead of “more jail and incarceration,” and he would end the cash bail system in the U.S.

This is nothing but a lie

Considering that this lie about the level of jailing is so blatantly false, it is amazing that it comes from the guy who says “the president lies all the time.”

  1. Sarah Sanders warns Trump backers about Bernie’s momentum: ‘We can take nothing for granted’

Fox News quotes Sarah Sanders in a 23 February 2020 article where Sarah Sanders reminds us that we cannot take anything for granted (since we know of the Democrat penchant for election fraud, counting “hanging chads,” and other issues).

Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders warned supporters of President Trump on Saturday night not to underestimate Sen. Bernie Sanders following his projected victory in the Nevada Democratic caucuses.

“I think [Bernie Sanders] is looking like the presumptive Democrat nominee at this point. He’s certainly moving in that direction,” Sanders said on “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” “And I think Republicans have to be extremely careful. We can take nothing for granted at this point. The stakes have literally never been higher.”

Bernie Sanders, who is no relation to Sarah Sanders, will win the Nevada caucuses, Fox News projected Saturday, furthering the democratic socialist’s lead over his Democratic rivals and raising the question of whether he can be stopped on his path to the Democratic nomination.

Sarah Sanders noted the importance of Republicans voting in November to combat Bernie Sanders.

“If crazy socialist Bernie Sanders is the Democrat nominee, as he is well on track to be, literally the way of life and our very freedom is at stake at the election in November and Republicans have to come out in full force and make sure that they get Donald Trump reelected,” Sanders said.

As I said before, we must work to the end

We can never take anything for granted. We have to work to the moment that the polls close.

  1. New FEC Filings Show Financial Woes For Democratic Candidates

The Daily Caller reports in a 21 February 2020 article how the FEC filings show how Democrat presidential candidates have experienced financial woes.

Democratic presidential candidates spent more money than they raised in January, new Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings show.

Independent Vermont Bernie Sanders stood out as the leading fundraiser thanks to a high volume of small donations while billionaire Michael Bloomberg continued to spend away, The Washington Post reported. Democratic Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren struggled financially early on but is showing signs of recovering, while the more moderate candidates appear to be sinking financially, Politico added.

Here’s how each campaign did financially.

Bernie Sanders

Sanders, who is the current frontrunner in the race, had the most funds of any non-billionaire candidate going into February with nearly $17 million, according to The Washington Post.

Sanders spent $26 million and raised $25 million in January, with a majority of donations being less than $200, The Post reported. The only other candidate to raise more than $10 million was Warren.

Elizabeth Warren

Warren had a rollercoaster of a month, starting with the lowest amount of money headed into February with only $2.3 million, according to Politico. The shortage of funds led her to pull ads from Nevada and South Carolina while also taking out a $3 million line of credit.

Still, Warren spent the second-most excluding the two billionaire candidates. To help cover this, Warren turned to PACs. Persist PAC was formed Tuesday to help aid her campaign. This is a flip from her previous opposition to taking PAC money. She told reporters that she would support efforts to weaken PACs in the future, but that in the current state of the campaign, taking money from PACs is “how it has to be.”

This all sounds good, but we still need to work

If you look at all the numbers (especially Trump’s), this can be encouraging. Still, we don’t need to take anything for granted.

Seven stories on the foolishness of “the Squad”


Problems with Rashida Tlaib

  1. Rashida Tlaib Boos Hillary Clinton at Bernie Sanders Rally: ‘No, No, I’ll Boo’

Breitbart reports in a 1 February 2020 article that Rashida Tlaib bucked the lead of the moderator and led the crowd in booing Hillary Clinton.

rashida-iowa-boo-hillaryRep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) booed Hillary Clinton at an Iowa event for her candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Friday evening, drawing laughter from the audience.

Tlaib made an appearance at Sanders’ “Caucus Concert” in Clive, Iowa, on Friday, which also featured a performance by the indie folk band Bon Iver, and took an opportunity on stage to boo Sanders’ former challenger.

During the panel discussion, the moderator, Dionna Langford, made a reference to Clinton’s recent remarks that “nobody likes him [Sanders].”

“We’re not going to boo. We’re not going to boo. We’re classy here,” Langford told the audience.

Tlaib interjected.

“No, no, I’ll boo,” she said, shouting “boo” loudly into the microphone:

Had this been a Republican, this would be on the front page of the New York Times

As we all know, had a conservative or other out-of-favor group booed Hillary Clinton, they would have been pilloried by most media outlets, both left and right. However, because this politician has a Democrat and a Muslim label, the main stream media has decided to ignore this event. The only way we find out about it is that a few right-wing media do the job that the main stream media as abandoned.

  1. Rashida Tlaib Releases Apologetic Statement After Booing Hillary Clinton

Breitbart also reports in a 1 February 2020 article that Rashida Tlaib has flip-flopped on her opposition to Hillary.

rashida-tlaib-apologizes-after-clip-booing-hillary-clinton-goes-viralRep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on Saturday released an apologetic statement after going viral for booing Hillary Clinton at a campaign event for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Friday evening, explaining that she allowed her “disappointment with Secretary Clinton’s latest comments about Senator Sanders and his supporters get the best of me.”

Tlaib released the statement after booing at the mention of Clinton at Sanders’ “Caucus Concert” in Clive, Iowa, explaining her frustration with attempts to “dismiss the strength and diversity” of Sanders’ movement.

“I am so incredibly in love with the movement that our campaign of #NotMeUs has created. This makes me protective over it and frustrated by attempts to dismiss the strength and diversity of our movement,” she wrote.

“However, I know what is at stake if we don’t unify over one candidate to beat Trump and I intend to do everything possible to ensure that Trump does not win in 2020,” she continued, explaining that she “allowed my disappointment with Secretary Clinton’s latest comments about Senator Sanders and his supporters get the best of me”:

Although the main stream press will not let us know, there is a war going on in the Democrat party

Problems with AOC

  1. Ocasio-Cortez Tells Billionaires: The People Don’t Want Your Money; They Want Your Power

In a 21 January 2020 article, Breitbart repeats the claims by AOC that socialists don’t want billionaires’ money — they want the billionaires’ power.

AOC_isAnIdiotRep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday delivered a message to billionaires, stating that the people want their “power” — not their money.

The New York lawmaker spoke at the Blackout for Human Rights: MLK Now 2020 in Harlem’s Riverside Church on Monday, stating that if billionaires want to be ethical, they should relinquish their power.

“If Jeff Bezos wants to be a good person, you turn Amazon into a worker cooperative,” she said to cheers. “You know, like what do I do with all this money that I have created with this unjust system?”

“And if — usually if you’re a billionaire, that means that you control a massive system. It means that you own oil supplies. It means that you control textiles. It means that you have a massive labor force under your control,” she continued.

“And to be ethical, if you’re a billionaire today, the thing that you need to do is give up control and power. So I don’t want your money as much as we want your power. The people. Not me,” she clarified:

What power (other than money) do all billionaires have?

According to the decision of the Supreme Court in Buckley versus Valeo, the ability to direct money to support a cause or a candidate constitutes free speech. Therefore, other than the billionaire’s ability to support a candidate with money or resources (food, transportation, goods, services, …) — what power does the billionaire have that AOC supposedly wants over the money?

This woman is a bloviating moron.

  1. AOC claims Democrats are center or center-conservative

The Washington Times provides the words of Representative Ocasio-Cortez — who said Democrats are the “center or center-conservative.”

If one is a socialist, the Democratic Party probably does look conservative.

At a Martin Luther King Day event Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York Democrat, derided her party as insufficiently left-wing and too beholden to capitalism.

AOC_isAnIdiotTwo“We don’t have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party,” the freshman congresswoman said to audience applause. “The Democratic Party is a center or a center-conservative party.”

How has “socialist” become “center or center-conservative?”

How has the party who staged cry-ins outside of a inner-city school in South Texas now transformed into a conservative party? How has the party who denies due process to a
sitting President
become a conservative party? When has the party who cannot handle a caucus of the Democrat part of a small state (but still wants to nationalize our health care) somehow transformed into a conservative group?

More centrally, when has the controlling socialist (as exposed through the Green New Deal) become the freedom-loving, job-creating conservative?

  1. A-Owe-C riles Dems by refusing to pay party dues, bankrolling colleagues’ opponents

Fox News points out how AOC has been marginalizing herself by both refusing to pay her Democrat party dues and then bankrolling opponents in the Democrat party who are not liberal enough for her tastes.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has already topped the fundraising charts in her short time in Congress, but the liberal darling won’t donate a cent of her millions to Democrats’ House campaign organization — a position that has rankled some of her colleagues, Fox News has learned.

Instead, Ocasio-Cortez is building her own fundraising operation for fellow progressive candidates to bypass the official Democratic Party infrastructure. Already, she’s actively funding primary challengers to oust certain Democratic colleagues.

“Sometimes the question comes: ‘Do you want to be in a majority or do you want to be in the minority?’” Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., told Fox News, when asked about AOC’s stance. “And do you want to be part of a team?”

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairwoman Cheri Bustos downplayed Ocasio-Cortez’s decision to shun dues and pointed to the record-breaking fundraising numbers the committee has notched without her.

“That’s always up to individual members so I guess I don’t think about it one way or another,” Bustos said when asked about Ocasio-Cortez’s stance. “We’re raising record amounts of money from our members.”

Democrats deserve this. This is socialism in action.

Democrats birthed the baby of class warfare and then got rich off of the taxpayers. Therefore, it follows that one of their own kind would start to step in their path. Ocasio-Cortez has only begun to take from the rich Democrat party and give to her poor socialist comrades.

Problems with Ilhan Omar

  1. Iranian Journalist Says Ilhan Omar Helped Smear Her After She Criticized Soleimani

The Daily Caller reported in a 10 January 2020 article that Masih Alinejad became the victim of a smear campaign after that Iranian journalist criticized General Soleimani.

Masih Alinejad
Masih Alinejad

Iranian journalist and author Masih Alinejad says Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has been a part of a smear campaign against her.

Alinejad wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post criticizing the late Iranian General Qasem Soleimani and claiming that many Iranians viewed him as a warmonger and even a war criminal rather than a celebrated leader — and Friday evening, she told Fox News host Martha MacCallum that Omar had joined those attacking her.

Alinejad said that she believed the attacks were a response to her recent article, saying, “I criticized Soleimani and I’ve said that many Iranians do not see him as a hero. They see him as a warmonger, as a war criminal. And that is why I got a lot of attacks by these Islamist lobbyists and she actually shared one of these defamatory articles against me.”

Alinejad said that what really bothered her was the fact that she had reached out to the freshman congresswoman on a number of occasions, asking her repeatedly to lend her voice to different situations.

“One time, six women got arrested just because of protesting compulsory hijab. Another time, 29 women in Iran got arrested in one day because of protesting compulsory hijab, and I asked Omar to join us and show solidarity. She was silent,” Alinejad began. “And another time when my brother was taken hostage by the Revolutionary Guard, I reach out to her. Silence again. My mother was interrogated for three hours just because of my activities. Again, she was silent. 1500 people got killed, she was silent. Right now, 176 people got killed in a suspicious situation in Iran, Ukrainian airplane — she’s silent!”

“Are you suggesting that she doesn’t care about the freedom that you are fighting for?” MacCallum pressed, asking whether Alinejad believed Omar was actually siding with the regime and against the people.

Why should we expect a leftist Representative who seems to have cheated the system to gain entry to the USA to act differently?

Why would we expect a Democrat (who comes from a pool of identity politics and bases her election on her religion and race) to treat this journalist fairly when that journalist bucks the Democrat norm and took stances the elected Democrat did not like?

  1. Ilhan Omar Continues To Dump Big Bucks Into Alleged Boyfriend’s Firm

The Daily Caller reports how Ilhan Omar continues in 2020 to dump money into her boyfriend’s firm.

Over half of Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s campaign expenditures in the last quarter of 2019 went to her alleged boyfriend’s consulting firm, according to Federal Election Commission filings released Friday.

Omar’s campaign paid $217,000 to E Street Group LLC between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 for research services, digital advertising, fundraising consulting, travel and more, filings show. The firm is run by Democratic consultant Tim Mynett, who was accused by his ex-wife in August of having an affair with Omar.

The fourth-quarter spending figures represent yet another significant uptick in the level of campaign funds Omar has dedicated to Mynett’s firm.

In the third quarter of 2019, Omar disbursed about $146,713 to E Street Group, and in the 10-month period prior, from August 2018 to June 2019, her total spending with the firm was $223,000.

In total, Mynett’s firm has received $587,000 from Omar’s campaign, the bulk of which was received after he was alleged to be dating the congresswoman.

So, Ilhan Omar may have married her brother, may have lied to gain entrance to the USA, and seems to have broken up a marriage while married

While Ilhan Omar may have married her brother, lied to gain entrance to the USA, seems to have committed campaign finance violations, seems to have broken up a marriage while she was also married — she does not seem to be slowing down with her illegal and immoral acts.

All the time, she wears a hijab — a symbol of her Islamic chastity and morality.

This woman wearing a hijab for chastity makes about as much sense as Americans handing over their health care to Democrats (who got hacked in 2016 and could not run a 200K member caucus in 2020).

AOC warns of war crimes

Fox News reports on AOC’s idiocy where she claimed Trump had committed a war crime by killing a general who was in an area where US troops had been attacked by Iranian-backed forces (many might consider that a combat zone).

The far-left “Squad” member wasted little time Saturday in denouncing Trump’s warning to Iran.

“This is a war crime,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. “Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children — which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites – does not make you a ‘tough guy,’ It does not make you ‘strategic.’ It makes you a monster.”

Fellow “Squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., also accused Trump of “threatening to commit war crimes.” “God help us all!” she tweeted.

Never mind that the United States Embassy in Iraq was attacked

Never mind that Soleimani had directed attacks against the US Embassy just a week ago. Never mind that Soleimaini had designed the improvised explosive devices that resulted in the deaths of over 600 service men and women. Never mind that Soleimaini had been directed by the UN not to travel due to his coordination of terror. Never mind that countless Iranians had died under his direction. Never mind his connection to Hezbollah and violence launched by that group.

AOC likes a tweet from a Russian-state media claiming Iran doesn’t target civilians

According to the Washington Free Beacon, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez liked a tweet saying that the Iranians never attacked civilians.

This comes with a hat tip to the Chris Salcedo Show. Thanks, Chris.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) liked a tweet from a Russian-funded operative claiming that Iran, the world’s most prolific state sponsor of terrorism, does not target civilians.

“A friend flying into the US says he hasn’t seen so much security since 9/11,” activist Rania Khalek said in a Sunday tweet liked by the Democratic congresswoman. “The US is terrified of how Iran will retaliate. Iran won’t attack civilians, that’s what al Qaeda does. But it shows this assassination did the opposite of making Americans safer and our leaders know it.”
RaniaKhalek_RussianAgent

Khalek is a host for In the Now, a viral media company funded by the Russian government that was kicked off Facebook for its pro-Russia propaganda. She previously served as an editor for anti-Israel site The Electronic Intifada but resigned after speaking at a pro-Bashar al-Assad conference in Syria.

The extent of Khalek’s pro-Iran advocacy was on full display in a recent YouTube livestream in which the activist claimed that “Iran is a country that mostly keeps to itself.” She also said “it’s a really brave country that’s been essential to keeping the Middle East stable throughout the last several decades.”

Contrary to Khalek’s claims, Iran has been responsible for countless attacks on civilians carried out by Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and its funding of various terror organizations. Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not respond to questions about Khalek’s Russian state affiliation or her claims about Iran’s targeting of civilians.

Ocasio-Cortez Says Refusing To Be Funded By Billionaires Is ‘Having Standards’ — She Took The Max From Steyer In 2018

The Daily Caller reported in a 27 December 2019 article that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that refusing money from billionaires is “having standards.”

TomSteyerCantDiscloseHundredsOfMillionsDemocratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has railed against campaigns funded by billionaires — but her own 2018 campaign took cash from billionaire and Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer.

The freshman congresswoman, who has endorsed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential race, took aim at billionaires as she campaigned with the self-described socialist in Venice Beach, California, last week.

“For anyone who accuses us for instituting purity tests, it is called having values,” Ocasio-Cortez told the crowd. “It is called having standards for your conduct to not be funded by billionaires but to be funded by the people, which is different!”

But as several outlets reported, Ocasio-Cortez’s 2018 campaign accepted the maximum $2700 donation from Steyer.

Tom Steyer says he can’t disclose hundreds of millions in financial assets

According to the Daily Beast, Tom Steyer can’t disclose where hundreds of millions lie.

TomSteyerCantDiscloseHundredsOfMillionsDemocratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer has insisted publicly that he is divested from his once-extensive fossil fuel interests. But he also has hundreds of millions of dollars tied up in assets that he will not or cannot disclose.

The California billionaire filed a new personal financial accounting last week giving a broad view of his extensive assets and sources of income. But he declined to go into detail about significant segments of his investment portfolio, citing confidentiality agreements that bar him from publicly disclosing the underlying assets in which he is invested.

Those assets are worth between $370 million and $742 million, according to a Daily Beast review of the filing, which only discloses the values in ranges. The total could actually be higher than that, as four of the assets, holdings in two hedge funds and two private equity funds, are valued at more than $50 million, without an upper range (The Daily Beast pegged their values at $50 million precisely for the purposes of this analysis).

Steyer declined to fully detail his holdings in 43 different investment vehicles, including hedge funds managed by Farallon Capital Management, the firm Steyer founded more than 30 years ago.

“Underlying assets are not disclosed due to a preexisting confidentiality agreement,” Steyer repeatedly told the Office of Government Ethics in his financial disclosure filing. For all 43 line items, Steyer pledged that he “will divest this asset if elected.”

Steyer’s arrangement appears kosher legally.  Federal law allows political candidates to shield such specifics from public view if the asset at issue “is considered confidential as a result of a privileged [legal] relationship.”

Bernie Sanders, Climate Hawk, Spends Nearly $300K On Private Jet Travel In Month

The Daily Caller calls out climate hawk Bernie on his private jet travel in one month.

Bernie Sanders

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s re-election campaign spent just under $300,000 on private jet use in October, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show.

The Sanders campaign, which is funded primarily by small-dollar donors, paid Apollo Jets $297,685.50 on Oct. 10, FEC records reveal. The payment was marked for “transportation.”

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones told local website VtDigger.com, which first reported on the jet expenses.

“This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” Jones said.

Sanders’s private jet use comes despite the senator’s hard-line stance on climate change, which he has consistently called “the single greatest threat facing our planet.”

Because flying generates significantly more greenhouse gases than driving, climate hawks generally advocate against taking unnecessary flights.

“The campaign purchased carbon offsets from NativeEnergy to support renewable energy projects and invest in carbon reduction projects to balance out the emissions produced on the trip,” Jones told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Carbon offsets in theory allow polluters to cancel out their emissions by funding projects aimed at reducing emissions.

Prison Inmates Made Calls for Michael Bloomberg’s Campaign

Breitbart reports that Bloomberg farmed out his phone calls to inmates.

2012BloombergFormer New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s presidential campaign indirectly used prison labor to make telephone calls, according to a Tuesday report.

Bloomberg’s campaign used third-party vendor ProCom, a New Jersey call center company, to make the calls, according to The Intercept. ProCom reportedly operates two call centers from Oklahoma state jails, where prisoners were making calls on behalf of the billionaire’s campaign to California residents. A source familiar with the matter revealed to The Intercept that incarcerated individuals at Dr. Eddie Warrior Correctional Center were making the calls.

The Bloomberg campaign claimed it did not know prisons were being used to make the calls and said it had terminated the agreement.

“We didn’t know about this and we never would have allowed it if we had,” Bloomberg spokesperson Julie Wood told The Intercept. “We don’t believe in this practice and we’ve now ended our relationship with the subcontractor in question.”

Bloomberg partakes in slave labor while touting his socialist credentials

For all of the things that Bloomberg has touted in his ads, I doubt that a return to slave wages would be found among the brag list. However, by going to the correctional system and hiring his telephone calls out to inmates, Bloomberg has taken part in America’s last vestige of slavery.

Then again, if Bloomberg really has been trying to follow in LBJ’s steps — this is the logical next step (since LBJ came out of the Jim Crow South).

Michael Bloomberg Channels the Big-Government Failures of LBJ

Lifezette reported that Bloomberg fell into the footprints of big-government Lyndon Baines Johnson.

michaelbloombergNoInvestigationOfDemocratsBillionaire 2020 Democrat presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg promised to declare “a war on poverty” during a campaign trip to Stockton, California, on Wednesday.

“As president, my job will be to move all Americans ahead, and that includes committing our country to new and innovative ways to combat poverty. There has to be a war on poverty,” said the exceedingly upscale Democrat at the event, his first trip

Bloomberg may want to check his history books.

Dem President Lyndon Johnson made the same pledge more than 50 years ago — and the result was disastrous.

Multigenerational government dependency, the gutting of entire urban neighborhoods and cities, and the virtual destruction of the minority family unit due to the government’s welfare policies were just some of the consequences of statist income redistribution programs that attempted to replace individual initiative and work ethic with a government check.

But, not being a political party that has ever learned from history, the Dems are back at it again — through this initiative and through party leaders’ open embrace of socialism as a viable economic policy.

Bloomberg, seen by some as a relative moderate in the Democrat field of candidates for the White House, is likely regurgitating this failed mantra as a sop to the hard-Left of the party.

Many of them who have been, and still are, employed by the public assistance industry will like his inference of a great expansion of government programs that will bring their offices greater funding and more staff.

CNN Anchor Describes Bin Laden’s Death As A ‘Nothing Burger’ Compared To Soleimani Killing

CNN‘s Amanpour is shown in a Daily Caller article claiming that the Bin Laden death was a “nothing burger” when compared to the death of Soleimani.

Christiane AmanpourCNN’s chief international anchor described the death of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in 2011 as a “nothing burger” compared to Thursday’s killing of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani.

The leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force was killed during an airstrike Thursday ordered by President Donald Trump near the Baghdad, Iraq, airport, the Pentagon said in a statement.

“Qasem Soleimani was at the height of his power when he was taken out. Unlike Osama bin Laden, who was a forgotten, you know, nothing burger, sort of hiding in a villa in Pakistan,” CNN’s Christiane Amanpour said Friday.

Former President Barack Obama ordered the raid on bin Laden’s compound in May 2011, resulting in his death. Bin Laden’s death was one of the highlights of the Obama administration.

“But, it’s not the person you take out, it’s what they leave behind and the tentacles and who comes next,” Amanpour continued. “Al-Qaeda terrorism did not end with the sidelining of Osama bin Laden. ISIS has not ended with the killing of al-Baghdadi.”

“So if you’re trying to end whatever is happening, this is a major escalation, and we need to see what the plan is.”

“In Arabic, he first quoted a verse from the Koran: ‘God says, “Turn to Allah with sincere repentance in the hope that your Lord will remove you from your ills”,’” recalled Sky News correspondent Mark Stone of an encounter with a jihadist “cub” in the Al Hol camp in Syria, which holds some 70,000 Islamic State women and children, 10,000 of whom are foreigners.

“He was asking us to repent our sins,” Stone continued.

“And then, calmly, he said: ‘We’re going to kill you by slaughtering you. We will slaughter you.’”

Just one day in October: Boko Haram Beheads Seven Civilians in Northern Nigeria

Breitbart reported on the continual crisis in Nigeria instigated by Islamists and ignored by the American press.

Boko Haram killed at least seven people.jpgThe radical Islamist faction of Boko Haram killed at least seven people in the city of Ngambu in the Borno state of northeast Nigeria. Local sources said that on Monday, they discovered the bodies of seven brutally decapitated people.

The gunmen “slit their (victims) throats just the way people slaughter goats,” said resident Musa Abor.

The Nigerian government has not yet released the identity of the victims.

Initially, the Boko Haram Islamists focused their aggressions mainly on resisting security forces, but recently they have increasingly targeted local civilians accused of “collaboration” with the military, as well as voluntary civilian militias.

The attacks took place while the people were celebrating the important Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha, a holiday commemorating Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, Ishmael.

Officials believe that more than two dozen towns and villages in the northeast are under Boko Haram control, though the Nigerian military has vowed to retake all lost ground.

The total of name=”_Hlk400460821″>those killed as a result of the Boko Haram aggression in northeastern Nigeria is now at least 11,000, according to a new report by the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday morning, Boko Haram claimed eight other victims in neighboring Cameroon, separated from Nigeria by a long, porous border. A rocket launched allegedly by Boko Haram from the Nigerian city of Banki fell on the town of Amchide, in the far north of Cameroon, killing at least eight civilians and leaving an unknown number of casualties.

The bomb hit a busy road while people were out shopping. In Amchide, the population is forming vigilante groups to fend off increasingly frequent raids of the Nigerian fighters, who in recent weeks have taken control of several towns and villages in the neighboring states of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa.

In Niamey Tuesday, a summit of the Lake Chad Basin Commission is scheduled to reinforce the fight against Boko Haram. The summit is to be preceded by a meeting of the defense ministers of Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, and Benin.

The South-South and South-East chairman of Nigeria’s Northern Forum, Alhaji Musa Saidu, has called on the members of the Boko Haram sect to lay down their arms and embrace peace.

Five Stabbed at Hanukkah Celebration in New York Suburb

Breitbart documents the anti-Semitic stabbing in liberal New York.

A Hanukkah celebration in a New York suburb turned into horror late Saturday night after a man entered and began stabbing people, witnesses say. Five victims were taken to nearby hospitals, according to police.

The Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council for the Hudson Valley Region said in a tweet victims inside the Monsey residence were Hasidic Jews. Two people are in critical condition, co-founder of the council, Yossi Gestetner, told CNN.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has since called the stabbing attack at the rabbi’s home an “act of domestic terrorism.”

“Let’s call it what it is: these people are domestic terrorists.” Watch:

Earlier, local police said the perpetrator fled the scene in a vehicle but that they were able to track him down.

“Horrific,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said of the stabbing. “So many Jewish families in our city have close ties to Monsey. We cannot overstate the fear people are feeling right now. I’ve spoken to longtime friends who, for the first time in their lives, are fearful to show outward signs of their Jewish faith.”

Walter E. Williams Warns Virginia About Gov. Ralph Northam’s Gun Registry Plan

Breitbart provides details from Walter E. Williams about the effects of Governor Ralph Northam’s gun registry plan.

Columnist and George Mason economics Professor Walter E. Williams is warning Virginia residents about Gov. Ralph Northam’s (D) gun registry plan.

Northam has been pushing an all-out ban on AR-15s and similar rifles for some time, but he recently changed the scope of the ban in the face of the growing Second Amendment Sanctuary movement.

On December 10, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Northam changed his position from supporting an across-the-board ban on possession of such weapons to supporting a ban only in a situation where a person refuses to register the firearm with the government. The Virginia Mercury quoted Northam spokeswoman Alena Yarmosky saying, “The governor’s assault weapons ban will include a grandfather clause for individuals who already own assault weapons, with the requirement they register their weapons before the end of a designated grace period.”

On December 27, 2019, Walter E. Williams used a Fox News op-ed to warn Virginians “not to fall for the registration trick.” He said, “Knowing who owns what weapons is the first step to confiscation.”

Williams added:

James Madison, in Federalist Paper No. 46 wrote that the Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”

Thomas Jefferson wrote: “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.”

Too many Americans believe the Second Amendment grants Americans the right to own firearms only to go hunting and for self-protection. The framers of our Constitution had no such intent in mind.

Newly sworn-in Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear restored voting rights for over 140,000 former felons in the state through an executive order, his office announced Thursday.

“My faith teaches me to treat others with dignity and respect. My faith also teaches forgiveness and that is why I am restoring voting rights to over one hundred forty thousand Kentuckians who have done wrong in the past, but are doing right now,” Beshear, a Democrat, said in a statement. “I want to lift up all of our families and I believe we have a moral responsibility to protect and expand the right to vote.”

Beshear also lamented the state’s voter access issues, asserting that Kentucky has the third highest voter disenfranchisement rate nationwide with nearly 10% of people, and nearly 25% of African-Americans, in the state not being allowed to vote.

The move fulfills a campaign promise after Beshear’s upset victory over former Republican Gov. Matt Bevin in November. It was a key point in Beshear’s platform of progressive issues, including making Medicaid more accessible and replacing Bevin’s state board of education.

The order states that more than 140,000 Kentuckians were unable to vote despite completing their prison terms for non-violent felonies, and that Kentucky was one of two states that did not automatically restore voting rights to former felons. The order does not apply to those incarcerated for treason, bribery in an election and many violent offenses.

Voting rights measures coming from the governor’s office have been a point of contention in Kentucky across several administrations. Beshear’s father, former Gov. Steve Beshear, issued an executive order in 2015 restoring felons’ voting rights. But Bevin promptly reversed it with his own executive order upon taking office later that year.

Bevin said at the time that while he supported “the automatic restoration of civil rights” for qualifying former felons, he believed “that such restoration must come through an amendment to the Kentucky Constitution and not by executive action.”

Under the Kentucky Constitution, those with felony convictions lose their voting rights but “may be restored to their civil rights by executive pardon.”

This effects minority neighborhoods more, since more criminals move to those poor neighborhoods

While Governor Beshear intends to benefit the small group of criminals and their sympathizers, he forgets about the larger communities around those criminals.

Kentucky governor Beshear tells Trump state will keep taking refugees

The Courier Journal provided an article on how the governor of Kentucky told Trump that he would continue to take refugees.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has turned down an offer from President Donald Trump’s administration to halt refugee resettlement.

“Kentucky has welcomed refugees for well over three decades,” the Democratic governor wrote in a letter dated Tuesday to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. “Refugees in Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green, Owensboro and other locales have contributed to the workforce and economic development of our state.”

About half of the states have consented to keep accepting refugees. No states so far have said they plan to stop accepting refugees under Trump’s order.

Even if a state opts out under Trump’s order, refugees could still move there, but they wouldn’t get funding for medical assistance and screenings, employment, social adjustment services and English language training.

In September, Trump slashed the number of refugees allowed into the U.S. and authorized state and local governments to refuse to accept them. An executive order says that if a state or a locality has not consented to receive refugees under the State Department’s Reception and Placement Program, then refugees should not be resettled within the state or locality unless the secretary of state decides otherwise.

An influx of new refugees will depress the jobs market for the less-skilled among us

Just as Governor Beshear forgot about disadvantaging minority communities by restoring felons’ voting rights, he also forgot how taking in refugees depresses the job market for the less skilled.

Six Separate Foreign Policy Lies by Democrat Joe Biden

Breitbart shows how Joe Biden lied about foreign policy while on the campaign trail.

From Iraq to Iran, Afghanistan to Ukraine, and everywhere in between, President Donald Trump’s campaign says former Vice President Joe Biden has been lying nonstop about foreign policy in recent days in an attempt to revise history in his political favor.

The Democrat presidential frontrunner in 2020, Biden, has made a number of claims in recent days that are demonstrably untrue, ranging from false claims that the Iran deal during the Obama administration “solved” the problem of Iran to untrue claims that he was supportive of former President Obama’s decision to launch the 2011 raid that finally killed Osama bin Laden.

Matt Wolking, the deputy communications director for rapid response for President Trump’s re-election campaign, joined Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel this weekend to expose several of Biden’s recent lies about foreign policy.

“What you’re seeing is Joe Biden is out there on the campaign trail trying to claim he is a foreign policy expert, and he claims that that is his area of expertise—which is really quite funny when you think about it,” Wolking said. “His own Defense Secretary under Obama, Bob Gates, said that he was wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades. So, now Biden is trying to rewrite history. He’s telling lie after lie to voters on a whole host of issues.”

Wolking and the Trump campaign before the show released a document demonstrating how Biden has in recent days spread six separate lies about his foreign policy record, all attempting to clean up what has been a political mess for him in the days leading up to the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primaries next month.

1.) Biden falsely claims he and Obama ‘solved’ Iran

At an event in Iowa on Friday, Biden claimed that the Trump administration had, regarding Iran, sparked an “extremely dangerous problem that our administration had solved and put on the back burner back on the table.”

The claim that Biden and Obama “solved” the Iran issue just is not true.

“He claims that with the Iran nuclear issue, he claims that he and President Obama solved the Iran issue and put it on the back burner,” Wolking said on Breitbart News Sunday. “But that’s ridiculous. President Obama himself admitted that down the road his nuclear deal would have allowed Iran to build the bomb almost instantly, moving the breakout time to near-zero.”

Obama did in an interview NPR in 2015 admit that his deal would not stop Iran from building a nuclear bomb, and that after the thirteenth year of that framework, Iran would be able to build one almost instantly.

With a complicit press, lying will help Sleepy Joe in the short term

Since the main stream media will cover for him, lying will work in the short run. However, when he has to campaign against a real opponent and when he has to work in the real world, lying will result in derision and a lost opportunity. Lying will cost America.

Fact Checkers Nuke Joe Biden on Foreign Policy as Iran Takes Center Stage

Breitbart lists the responses of fact checkers (who normally kiss up to Democrats) when they saw Sleepy Joe’s idiotic statements.

Fact checkers from a number of different establishment media operations crushed former Vice President Joe Biden this week as the issue of Iranian aggression continues to captivate the nation just weeks from the Iowa caucuses.

The shift to foreign policy in the national political debate has not been kind to Biden, who has been hammered by everyone from PolitiFact, to the Washington Post, to even CNN.

Just this week, three brutal fact checks came crushing down on Biden–whom Breitbart News and President Donald Trump’s campaign earlier this week exposed as regularly lying about foreign policy–on a number of different fronts.

First off, PolitiFact nailed the former vice president for embellishing claims about his role in former President Barack Obama’s decision to order the raid that killed Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in 2011.

In an exchange with Fox News’s Peter Doocy last week, Biden lied and claimed that he was supportive of Obama’s decision to send in the special forces team that killed bin Laden:

Doocy: “As commander in chief, if you were ever handed a piece of intelligence that said you can stop an imminent attack on Americans but you have to use an airstrike to take out a terror leader, would you pull the trigger?”

Biden: “Well, we did. Guy’s name was Osama bin Laden.”

Doocy: “Didn’t you tell President Obama not to go after bin Laden?”

Biden: “No, I didn’t. I didn’t.”

That was untrue, as Breitbart News and many other outlets have noted. Biden did oppose the raid, as he, Obama himself, then-White House press secretary Jay Carney, and several Obama Cabinet officials confirmed at the time.

Truthfully, I am surprised that liberal-leaning fact checkers went against Sleepy Joe

These fact checkers must have a favorite in the game (like Sanders, Warren, Buttigieg, or any other socialist).

Five things that may warm conservatives’ hearts


  1. The case of AOC (the good side of gerrymandering)

Townhall informs us through a 31 December 2019 article how the 2020 census may cause AOC’s district to be redrawn.

AOCWe’ve heard this could be a possibility for quite some time: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s House district could be redrawn based on the 2020 census. And as Beth noted, New York is projected to lose one seat. This has not caught the fiery left-winger off guard. AOC has been known this could be a potential problem. It also highlights why Democrats threw a tantrum when the Trump administration proposed the very noncontroversial change to the 2020 census by including a citizenship question. In AOC’s district, almost a quarter of its residents are noncitizens. As expected, the areas that will be heavily impacted are Democratic bastions. It strikes at the heart of their political power and roadmap to obtaining control. Coddle these groups of people together and use them to create more districts favorable to Democrats based on ethnic representatives. Democrats have had phenomenal success doing this, hence the reason why they’re lax on border security, endear themselves to illegal immigration, and bash federal authorities tasked with enforcing laws in this area, hence the targeting of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents as the Gestapo in these circles.

Considering that we often find it very hard to get rid of incumbents, this might be the best news for that district

Even Senator Menendez has been returned to office after being “severely admonished” (not even censured) for his receipt of gifts (something normally called bribery). Therefore, getting AOC gerrymandered out of her seat may be a real blessing.

Hopefully, a few miracles of removal will happen with Tlaib and Omar (if that is Omar’s current last name).

  1. One Democrat takes up a campaign-killing cause: Buttigieg Calls For Carbon Pricing: ‘So Important’

Since Democrats think that they pay way too little for gasoline, we find through a 31 December 2019 Daily Caller article that Pete Buttigieg has been calling for a carbon tax.

PeteButtigieg2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg called for carbon pricing at a campaign event in Davenport, Iowa.

The South Bend, Indiana, mayor said Monday that Americans need to do the “right thing here at home,” adding that “that’s why carbon pricing is so important.”

The carbon tax, beside taxing an essential commodity, works as a multi-tier tax

This carbon tax not only will hit every citizen (and, therefore, cripple the poorest among us the most quickly), but also does so on multiple levels. You see, the tax will hit the manufacturer several times during creation phase of the product. Then the tax will pop up several times in its trip to market. Depending on what type of product has been created, the carbon tax may continue to apply.

Do you think that this will have an effect on the economy? You had better bet your bippy that it will.

Additionally, carbon tax will hit more things than just gasoline. It will also impact the price of diesel used to tun the local electric car charging station. Carbon tax will hit you in the stove if your house has a natural gas (methane) stove or heater. Do you burn heating oil? Guess what this will jack up?

Finally, do you buy anything that has been delivered to a store?

With a leading Democrat taking this position (that works against the working class and the poor), conservatives can take comfort that the Democrat causes do not work. Additionally, the Democrat causes have the potential of killing jobs. This should be pointed out and the “independent” voter should be made to think through their vote.

  1. Trump’s agenda of helping minority communities is a ‘policy legacy’

Townhall points out in a 30 December 2019 article that President Trump’s agenda of helping minority communities will create a ‘policy legacy.’

CBS News’ Major Garrett applauded President Donald Trump and his administration for making strides to help minority communities. According to Garrett, Trump’s successes are a “legacy” that “almost any president would want to claim.”

Garrett named a number of the administration’s successes, including funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and the passage of the FIRST STEP Act, which focuses on helping inmates reenter society and slow the recidivism rate.

Donald Trump“It can be fairly said that this administration, because of President Trump’s quiet prodding, has done quite a bit for funding of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The FIRST STEP Act, which was a massive first step towards criminal justice reform…” Garrett explained. “Just a couple weeks ago in this newly-signed defense bill there is a law that says if you are seeking work for the federal government or any contractor, you don’t have to be asked – and you can’t be asked – about your criminal history until right toward the end. That’s a significant change long sought by criminal justice advocates. Plus opportunities owned in the tax bill directed at communities of color.”

“That is a legacy, on the agenda side, that almost any president after three years, would want to claim,” Garrett concluded.

Considering how the welfare system set up by President Johnson destroyed the Black family and still built a legacy, President Trump’s actual reduction of Black unemployment should build a legacy

In other news, it was announced that the unemployment for Blacks and Hispanics again reached historic lows. When you consider that this law give people a chance to sell their skills before they can be asked about the criminal past that they are trying to work beyond — this allows people to work beyond their mistakes and seek forgiveness.

  1. Southern Hispanics for Trump

In what seems to be a follow-on article to the above presentation, Townhall details why Southern Hispanics have come to support President Trump.

hispanicsfortrump_gettyThe Democratic Party is great at capturing the minority vote. In fact, the Democrats have been great at telling Hispanics, African Americans and women that they should automatically vote for the Democratic Party. People are finally waking up and realizing that their values align more with the Republican Party than the Democrats. And that has people campaigning hard for President Donald Trump’s reelection efforts.

“I look at President Trump as the one who most closely represents my values,” 65-year-old Ray Baca, the Chairman of Border Hispanics for Trump, told CNN.

“People will hear that and say ‘Values? What values does the president have.’ So when you say ‘values,’ what do you mean?” CNN’s Nick Valencia asked.

“I mean supporting things that I support, like being against abortion, being for limited government involvement, being for border security,” Baca explained.

Valencia asked how Baca could support Trump even though he has “said racist things about the Hispanic community.” But Baca disagreed.

“We don’t think he’s said things that are racist,” the Trump supporter replied.

For all the liberal forgiveness that the journalists once stood for, they now seem to stand for judgemental pharisee-ism now

In this case, the “journalist” tries to badger the interviewee into an anti-Trump position. Since this so closely matches the format used nightly by the main stream media, this will continue to work for those who have identified media bias and against the media itself (and, therefore, will also work against the Democrats who the media so staunchly support).

  1. Denver Sticking To Sanctuary Policy Following Arrest Of Hit-And-Run Suspect Who Was Already Deported Six Times

The Daily Caller points out how Denver has been sticking to it sanctuary policy following the arrest of an illegal alien on hit-and-run charges.

Denver officials do not plan on fully cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) if they release an illegal alien who was deported six times before getting arrested for fleeing the scene of a deadly hit-and-run accident.

Juan-SanchezJuan Sanchez, a Mexican national living in the U.S. illegally, is accused of striking a pedestrian in the Denver area with a vehicle and immediately fleeing the scene. If Sanchez — who lives in a state that largely limits cooperation with ICE — is able to make bond, his release back into the community could pose another showdown between local officials and federal immigration authorities.

The City and County of Denver reiterated its position on transferring custody of illegal aliens when approached by the Daily Caller News Foundation about Sanchez’s case.

A Colorado woman, Annette Conquering Bear, was running an errand Dec. 17 when an oncoming SUV struck her while she tried to cross an intersection. The vehicle drove away without stopping, according to the Denver Police Department. A witness to the accident flagged down a nearby ambulance, but Conquering Bear was pronounced dead at the scene.

Law enforcement was able to locate the vehicle, a white GMC Sierra crew cab truck, and arrest its driver, Sanchez. The 39-year-old Mexican national was charged with vehicular homicide and fleeing the scene of an accident. Officials set his bond at $500,000.

ICE revealed Sanchez carries an extensive list of immigration violations that spans nearly two decades. Not only is he living in the U.S. illegally, but he was deported from the country six times: once in 2012, three times in 2008, and twice in 2002. It’s not immediately clear how Sanchez was able to make so many unauthorized re-entries into the U.S., which is a felony under federal law.

Colorado’s state government, which is under the control of the Democratic Party, has become increasingly antagonistic toward federal immigration authorities. Gov. Jared Polis, for example, signed into law in May legislation that prohibits local law enforcement from detaining a suspected illegal alien solely on the basis of an ICE request, prohibits officers from providing an illegal alien’s personal information to ICE, and requires police to read illegal aliens their Miranda rights when coordinating an ICE interview.

Given Sanchez’s repeated violations of U.S. immigration law, the DCNF asked Denver’s government if it would allow for a coordinated transfer with ICE, should Sanchez make bond. The DCNF received the following response:

“Pursuant to the Public Safety Enforcement Priorities Act, when the Denver Sheriff Department receives a request for notification from ICE the inmate is advised of their rights upon receipt and prior to release. We fax Ice notification of release when the individual enters into the release process. It is the responsibility of ICE to take the individual into custody. We do not do any secure handoff and do not participate in the transfer unless an incident would occur that would threaten the safety of the community.”

Where do you go for support — not to the Democrats

When you want equal justice under the law, where do you go? Do you go to the party who exempts illegal aliens from the law? Do you go to the party who forces Baronelle Stutzman and Jack Phillips to violate their consciences to provide services?

Do you go to the party who denied an fair process (from numbers of witnesses to ability to be represented) throughout the House impeachment process and then cried for another chance to cheat?

Four signs Democrats might feel the heat


Squad member Omar screams “Stop it!” when Tlaib’s profane comments are repeated on House floor

The Political Insider provides insight to “The Squad” as Representative Omar screams “Stop it” to recitation of Representative Tlaib’s obscene election night promise.

IlhanOmarYellingIlhan Omar couldn’t handle hearing her Rashida Tlaib’s profane impeachment comments read on the House Floor during statements prior to Wednesday’s vote, repeatedly screaming “Stop it!”

Fox News reports several journalists were able to identify Omar (D-MN) as the one heard repeatedly shouting to McCarthy to “stop it.”

“Those are not my words,” McCarthy responded to the outburst.

Senate Can Acquit Even If House Withholds Articles of Impeachment

Breitbart reported that several sources point out that Democrats have no control over Senate acts.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appears to be considering an idea Democrats have floated for several days of holding back the articles of impeachment to exercise leverage over the Senate and the president.

She declined formally to transmit the articles to the Senate on Wednesday evening after the House voted to impeach President Donald Trump.

Unfortunately for them, the Senate can act, regardless — and would vote to acquit.

That’s because the Constitution is absolutely clear about the Senate’s authority. Article I, Section 3 says: “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.”

That is all.

The Chief Justice presides over a trial involving the president, but the Senate makes the rules. And the Senate is controlled by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who regards what the House has done with contempt.

You’re in Cocaine Mitch’s court, now.

Politico outlined Democrats’ new idea, citing constitutional lawyer Laurence Tribe (but, interestingly, not the Constitution itself). Pelosi hopes to pressure McConnell into holding a “fair trial” — this, after she and her party broke every relevant House rule and precedent, and several Amendments in the Bill of Rights, all in the name of their “sole Power of Impeachment.”

They forget that a “fair trial” applies to the accused, not the accuser, and has since 1215.

Set aside, for the moment, that holding onto the articles of impeachment would contradict everything Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the Democrats have said for weeks about the “urgency” of impeachment. They needed to stop him before he could “cheat in the next election,” we were told — that’s why the House could not wait for the courts to rule on the White House’s resistance to stop congressional subpoenas.

All of that would be exposed as a lie.

If Pelosi refuses to submit the articles of impeachment to the Senate, McConnell can convene the Senate anyway, summon the Chief Justice, and swear in the Senators as jurors. Democrats can boycott, but they can’t stop the trial.

McConnell can then propose to dismiss the charges or even hold a vote to acquit the president.

This all seems to be good news to me.

The only question now might be whether there are Democrats in hiding in the Senate — you know, the ones everyone heretofore had thought were Republicans.

But, if there are, that will just set my resolve to supporting the Republicans I know and undermining the Democrats like Romney, Collins, Murkowski, McCarthy, et al.

Since Biden’s claims sound like obstruction of Congress, Biden changes his tune

Biden clarifies remark that he will not comply with Senate subpoena

In a 28 December 2019 article at Fox News, Adam Shaw points out how Joe Biden sought to “clarify” his comments regarding appearing before the Senate.

JoeBidenYellingFormer Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday sought to “clarify” his prior remarks that he will not comply with a potential subpoena to testify in the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump.

The 2020 presidential hopeful on Friday had told the Des Moines Register that any testimony would draw attention away from Trump’s alleged wrongdoing and let him off the hook.

“What are you going to cover?” Biden said in response to a question about the possibility of his participation in the trial. “You guys are going to cover for three weeks anything that I said. And (Trump’s) going to get away.”

But on Saturday, he appeared to partially walk that answer back.

“I want to clarify something I said yesterday. In my 40 years in public life, I have always complied with a lawful order and in my eight years as VP, my office — unlike Donald Trump and Mike Pence — cooperated with legitimate congressional oversight requests,” he tweeted.

“But I am just not going to pretend that there is any legal basis for Republican subpoenas for my testimony in the impeachment trial. That is the point I was making yesterday and I reiterate: this impeachment is about Trump’s conduct, not mine,” he said.

Later on Saturday, during a town hall in Iowa, Biden said he “would obey any subpoena sent to me.”

Biden needs to sit in front of a panel

In the least, Biden needs to stand before the nation and testify before the Senate regarding the crimes perpetrated in Ukraine.

Better yet, should there be evidence available to the investigators of Attorney General Barr, then Biden should stand trial for his wrongdoings.

The Democrat focus on impeachment shot another red flare warning into Michigan (another battleground state)

Just as Hillary shot herself in the foot by ignoring the battleground states (spending all of her time in the coastal strongholds), a 29 December 2019 article in Townhall points out how San Fran Nan shot the current crop of hopefuls in the foot by messing with another battleground state.

Often, politicians put too much faith in polls. Since 2012, their accuracy has degraded. In 2016, they were insanely off, which led to the greatest political upset in modern American history. It’s also shakier when the Trump coalition isn’t “loyal” for a lack of a better word. These voters had voted for Democrats in the past, with millions being Obama voters. A great many were two-time Obama voters. In fact, a good chunk voted for Democrats in the 2018 midterms, though two-thirds now say they’re backing Trump this year. And it doesn’t matter who the Democratic rival is; that should cause some pause with Democrats heading into 2020. Oh, and these are all battleground state voters.

Democrats didn’t care. They couldn’t. The 2018 promise was that they’ll impeach Trump. Support for President Trump’s impeachment is now underwater nationally, and it was never popular in the swing states, especially in Wisconsin and Michigan. These are states that Democrats need to win in 2020. And these voters could’ve maybe have been persuaded to vote Democratic if they had an agenda that spoke to working class Americans. They don’t. And now, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her crew getting the article of impeachment through the House and now holding onto them because they face certain death in the Republican Senate, these voters are just Trump Republicans now. Maybe the window was never there, but even if there was—this Democratic Party’s far-left extremism wouldn’t have sold. For starters, the health care plan that Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders want will destroy 150+ million private health care plans. That’s the only way Medicare for All works—and those on the casualty list include union households. Talk about an election killer. And now with this impeachment theater; these voters are “sick” of it (via Axios):

The two-plus hour conversation revealed major warning signs for the Democratic Party in a crucial swing county that will be a pivotal area to win in 2020.

This was the biggest takeaway from our Engagious/FPG focus group last week, which included 10 voters who flipped from Obama in 2012 to Trump in 2016.

While a focus group is not a statistically significant sample like a poll, these responses show how some voters are thinking and talking about the 2020 election in crucial counties.

[…]

The big picture:

These voters hate the fact that House Democrats are moving toward impeaching the president. They call it a distraction from the issues that would actually improve their lives, like preserving Social Security, cracking down on illegal immigration, and keeping jobs in the U.S.

“I think she’s wasting a lot of [taxpayer] money on a ghost chase,” said Chad Y., a 43-year-old Obama/Trump voter, of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “The money she’s spending on that could go to help the homeless or go towards health care.”

Another participant, 73-year-0ld Michael G., said Democrats’ focus is in the wrong direction. “Instead of working on policies and things that will help the people, they are just working to basically preserve their own position … [T]hey don’t really care about you and [me], I don’t think.”

Oh, and remember the Armageddon tax bill Trump pushed through Congress? Well, these voters think it made health care more affordable. As Axios noted, “they said…his [Trump] GOP tax law, which some said has saved them more in taxes so they can now reallocate that money to pay for prescription drugs.”

Do-nothing Democrats now have to answer for their inaction

Since 2018, Democrat members of the House have focused on far-left causes and ignored just about all bridge-building efforts. Now it seems that they might reap a crop for their efforts.
