Ten reasons to keep the heat on Democrats


  1. Pelosi may realize impeachment politics have ‘turned around’ in key states

Fox News points out that Pelosi may realize that her impeachment have turned politics around in key states.

pelosi“Special Report” anchor Bret Baier said on Thursday that impeachment politics may have turned against House Democrats in key states, prompting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to state that she may wait to send articles of impeachment to the GOP-controlled Senate.

“The politics of this perhaps turned around in some key states because, obviously, you would want to talk about it if you’ve accomplished the thing you’ve set out to do for a long period of time,” Baier told “America’s Newsroom” after Pelosi took only a limited number of questions about impeachment Thursday at her weekly news conference.

Pelosi’s move to wait to send their articles of impeachment against President Trump to the GOP-controlled Senate is based on a stated concern that they are incapable of holding a fair trial. Pelosi held a press conference on Wednesday following the House impeachment vote and was asked what would qualify as a “fair trial.”

She was then asked about possibly withholding the articles of impeachment from the Senate until they get certain reassurances, and the speaker refused to give a direct answer.

“Again, we’ll decide what that dynamic is, but we hope that the resolution of that process will be soon in the Senate,” she said.

The Speaker then repeatedly fended off questions about withholding the articles, before saying it would ultimately be a joint decision between the House and Senate.

“We will make our decision as to when we’re going to send — when we see what they’re doing on the Senate side, but that’s a decision that we will make jointly,” she said.

The impeachment vote total on the abuse-of-power count was 230–197, with Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voting present. The obstruction vote total was 229–198, with Gabbard also voting present on that count, too.

‘Awkward’: Negative Reactions Pour In After Bernie Sanders’ Outburst About Being White

The Daily Caller reports on an odd moment in the Democrat debate of December.

Bernie Sanders2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders was widely panned in the media for his outburst about being white during Thursday’s Democratic debate.

Politico correspondent and moderator Tim Alberta noted a comment made by former President Barack Obama Monday about old men who won’t get “out of the way” being to blame for many world problems.

When Alberta said that Sanders, 78, was the oldest candidate on stage, the Vermont senator interjected, yelling “and I’m white as well!” and an awkward silence followed.

Negative reactions poured in after Sanders’ outburst.

“Awkward exchange of the night goes to Bernie Sanders,” the Sacramento Bee noted on Twitter.

CNN’s Chris Cillizza simply wrote, “True,” in response to Sanders’ outburst. Mediaite writer Tommy Christopher tweeted that the senator’s statement “is not the bumper sticker Bernie Sanders needs.”

Tom Namako, the news director at Buzzfeed News, highlighted the silence that followed Sanders’ comment. Washington Post reporter Amy B. Wang echoed this, tweeting out that his comment was followed by “some awkward silence.”

Culture editor at The Federalist Emily Jashinsky joked that “absolutely no one” had asked Sanders to comment about his race.

The Democrats have specialized in identity politics for decades

In fact, one of the pushes currently in effect centers on paying all Blacks in reparation for slavery. Never mind that:

  • Not all Blacks can trace their lineage to the period where slaves were owned
  • Some Blacks owned slaves
  • Not all White Southerners owned slaves
  • Although many will argue that the Civil War was not fought over slavery, it was certainly a central factor (and many Whites and Blacks died in that conflict)
  • No surviving slaves still live and no surviving slave owners still live

All this (and the numerous other identity politics measures) tends to do is to divide us. As years of Antifa (today’s KKK) and the resistance have shown us, we do not need more division.

  1. Look Where San Francisco Is Today — and What the Democrats Aren’t Fixing

Lifezette points out the mess created in San Francisco and how Democrats are not fixing the problems.

san francisco poopIt is one of the hallmarks of civilization, for it contributes to stable public health and suppresses the spread of infectious disease.

But in areas governed by a certain ideology, the public health situation has become so bad — virtually medieval — that diseases long thought to be eradicated are making a potential comeback to plague-city populations.

Welcome to San Francisco, California.

Under Democratic Party rule for more than several decades, the City by the Bay increasingly has become a haven for the very poor and the very rich — the exact opposite of the stated aspirations of Democratic Party platforms.

Young tech millionaires share the city spaces with the homeless and indigent in a scene more reminiscent of pre-revolutionary late 18th century Paris or Dickensian London than a modern American city.

Fox News medical correspondent Dr. Marc Siegel spoke to that earlier this week on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“Isn’t it ironic that a city of germaphobes, of exercise-conscious, environmentally conscious [people] … [is] now a city that’s awash in human waste, which is spreading hepatitis A outbreaks every year?” he said to Carlson, in part. “Big outbreaks of hepatitis A, rats in the streets feeding off the garbage in sewage, typhus, typhoid fever, rotten bacterial infections and even the plague may be coming.”

Siegel added, “And here’s the other thing that’s even worse. It’s not just the homeless population, right? People trek through those neighborhoods. They get [human waste] on their shoes and then they bring it to other neighborhoods — and then the diseases spread to other neighborhoods.”

  1. New Jersey is the 15th state to give illegals drivers licenses

One America News Network reports that New Jersey has become the 15th state to give drivers licenses to illegal aliens. Naturally, their legislature is dominated by Democrats.

NJ_licensesToIllegalAliensNew Jersey has become the 15th state in the U.S. to allow illegal immigrants to obtain drivers licenses. Governor Phil Murphy signed the legislation at Thursday’s event, which was attended by immigrants and advocates alike.

“Many of our undocumented neighbors are already behind the wheel and on our roads, going to work, school and the grocery store,” stated the governor. “Today’s bill will make us all safer, while ensuring that our immigrant communities can continue contributing to our state, our economy, and our future.”

Analysts said the move will benefit more than 400,000 illegals in the state. However, critics said the new law prioritizes illegal immigrants over everyone else, raises the potential for voter fraud and runs the risk of drawing more illegals to the state.

Murphy commented on the bills prior rejection by former Governor Chris Christie.

“When Assemblywoman Keanu first tried to have a hearing on this bill – not even a vote mind you, just a hearing – former Governor Chris Christie implied that it would open the door for terrorists,” he said.

The new law will not go into effect until January 2021.

  1. Selling Impeachment: Nancy Pelosi-Aligned PAC Spends Millions to Help Swing District Democrats

Breitbart reports in a 15 December 2019 article that a Pelosi-aligned political-action-committee has spent millions trying to help Democrats in tough spots.

pelosiAlignedSpeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s rush to impeachment is receiving an assist from the millions of dollars at least one PAC aligned with her has already spent on House Democrats who currently represent swing districts.

Those financial incentives appear to be increasingly relevant as the final vote on the two articles of impeachment is scheduled to come to the House floor this week.

Pelosi needs 216 ‘yes’ votes to pass each article (there are currently four vacancies in the 435 member House), and at least two Democrats have already announced they will vote no, barring any unknown developments, leaving Pelosi with a potential 232 yes votes (231 Democrats and one independent, Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI)), 16 more than the majority she needs.

But when Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN-7) told the Globe, a newspaper in his district, on Saturday that he would be a ‘no’ vote “barring new developments,” he also said that four to five other Democrats might join him.

If Peterson is right, and the four additional Democrats who he believes are ‘no’ votes join Van Drew and Peterson, the tally would drop to 228 ‘yes’ votes and 203 ‘no’ votes, just 12 more than the 216 needed to reach a majority.

Pelosi and her allies appear to be taking no chances. “NEW … HOUSE MAJORITY FORWARD — an arm of House Majority PAC, which supports House Democrats — is spending $2.5 MILLION thanking HOUSE DEMOCRATS for voting for the Democrats’ most recent bill aimed at lowering the cost of prescription drugs for Americans,” Politico reported on Friday:

THE 30-SECOND SPOT differs region by region. The spot for Rep. MAX ROSE , whose district is anchored in Staten Island, is called “Like Hell,” and the narrator says, “Max Rose knows you need to fight like hell to make things better. Thank him for fighting to lower drug prices.” The ad they cut for Rep. ABIGAIL SPANBERGER of Virginia is called “And You” — it says if Medicare could negotiate lower drug prices, it should be good for seniors, “for you, and you, and you.” The spot for Iowa Rep. ABBY FINKENAUER urges her to “keep taking names and lowering costs,” and highlights the bill’s benefits for rural Americans.

HOUSE MAJORITY FORWARD is also airing ads on behalf of Iowa Rep. CINDY AXNE, Maine Rep. JARED GOLDEN, Michigan Reps. ELISSA SLOTKIN and HALEY STEVENS, Nevada Rep. SUSIE LEE, New Jersey Rep. ANDY KIM, New Mexico Rep. XOCHITL TORRES SMALL, New York Reps. ANTONIO DELGADO and ANTHONY BRINDISI, Oklahoma Rep. KENDRA HORN, South Carolina Rep. JOE CUNNINGHAM, Utah Rep. BEN MCADAMS and Virginia Rep. ELAINE LURIA.

Ballotpedia reported on the origins of the House Majority PAC:

House Majority PAC was founded in 2011 to answer what its organizers saw as “the barrage of GOP outside spending and ensure that never again would groups funded by Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson and the like be able to drown out Democratic candidates.” The super PAC is associated with former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) who raised funds for the group in its early stages. It is also, according to Politico, seen as a sister group to the Senate Majority PAC, a super PAC associated with former Nevada Sen. Harry Reid (D).

All sixteen Democrat House members identified in the Politico report as beneficiaries of this current largesse from House Majority Forward are among the 31 House Democrats who represent districts President Trump won in 2016.

As of Sunday afternoon, two of them: Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) and Rep. Susie Lee (D-NV) have announced they will vote ‘yes’ on the articles of impeachment on the floor of the House this week.

If you disagree with Pelosi’s impeachment, you need to fund PACs that say so where it is needed

We need to put heat on:

  1. Max Rose of Staten Island
  2. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia
  3. Abby Finkenauer of Iowa
  4. Cindy Axne of Iowa
  5. Jared Golden of Maine
  6. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan
  7. Haley Stevens of Michigan
  8. Susie Lee of Nevada
  9. Andy Kim of New Jersey
  10. Xoshitl Torres Small of New Mexico
  11. Antonio Delgado of New York
  12. Anthony Brindisi of New York
  13. Kendra Horn of Oklahoma
  14. Joe Cunningham of South Carolina
  15. Ben McAdams of Utah
  16. Elaine Luria of Virginia

It seems like these 16 have some explaining to do.

  1. Democrat Xochitl Torres Small: Impeaching Trump Will Protect National Security, Constitution

Breitbart reported in a 15 December 2019 article on a Democrat who seems to be trying to convince others by bravado rather than logic.

em020419gFreshman swing district Democrat Rep. Xochitl Torres Small (D-NM) said Sunday that impeaching President Donald Trump will protect America’s national security, the Constitution, and American democracy.

Rep. Torres Small said that President Trump jeopardized national security through his conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The New Mexico Democrat said in a statement Sunday:

We cannot allow any President of either party to abuse the power of the highest office, jeopardizing our country’s national security in the process, to pressure foreign leaders to conduct investigations against political rivals. We also cannot allow any President to obstruct Congress’ power to investigate impeachable offenses by prohibiting White House and other administration officials from testifying or providing evidence. I must act to protect our national security, our Constitution, and the integrity of our elections.

The New Mexico Democrat represents one of the 31 congressional districts that President Trump won during the 2016 presidential election, and House Democrats flipped during the 2018 midterm elections. Republicans need to retake roughly 20 House seats to retake the House majority.

Then-candidate Torres Small beat Republican candidate Yvette Herrell by 1.8 percentage points.

In response to the report that Rep. Torres Small will vote for both articles of impeachment against Trump, Herrell said that “it’s time to vote out” the New Mexico Democrat.

Herrell told Breitbart News Saturday that the House Democrats impeachment “charade” is wearing “thin” for Americans and New Mexicans.

“We sent her to Washington, she voted against the wall, she voted against the Second Amendment, she voted for the Equality Act, that is a direct hit on our values and principles, we are a pro-life district,” she added.

  1. Warren Campaign Touted Endorsement From Anti-Israel Politician Who Called Cory Booker ‘AIPAC Puppet’: Report

As reported by the Daily Caller in a 13 December 2019 article, it seems that Warren wants to brag on an endorsement from an anti-Israel politician.

LieawathaDemocratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s campaign touted the endorsement of an anti-Israel politician who reportedly called Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker an “AIPAC puppet.”

Americans and Palestinians for Peace (AMPAL) leader John Dabeet endorsed Warren in November, the Free Beacon reports, and the Massachusetts senator’s campaign included Dabeet in a list of “Iowa leaders” who are backing her in the Democratic primary. Dabeet is also a Muscatine Community School District board member.

Dabeet has praised Warren for standing up against Israel, saying in a November Facebook post, “Thank you Senator Warren for standing up for what’s right and for acknowledging the Palestinian deaths, and the Palestinians rights to live in peace and freedom in their homeland in the past four days due to the Israeli attacks on Gaza along with Senator Sanders. You got our support and will connect with many people across Iowa and United States and will ask them to stand by you.”

Dabeet has called Israel a “fake democracy,” and labeled Sen. Booker an “AIPAC puppet,” the Beacon reports, adding that the AMPAL referred to a deceased leader of the terrorist Palestinian Liberation Organization in 2016 as an “immortal leader” and “martyr leader.” AIPAC, American Israel Public Affairs Committee, is a pro-Israel advocacy group.

The Iowa politician has also called for a boycott of Israel and tweeted his support for Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, both of whom support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement.

  1. Another Trump District Democrat Ripped By Constituents Over Impeachment: ‘If She Votes For Impeachment, She’s Screwed’

The Daily Caller uses a 13 December 2019 article to repeat some promises from the constituents to a freshman Representative.

kendra_hornConstituents ripped Democratic Oklahoma Rep. Kendra Horn on Sunday, saying Democrats focus too much on impeachment and too little on improving the lives of Americans.

Horn, who represents most of Oklahoma, Pottawatomie and Seminole counties, spoke at a Sunday town hall meeting where voters angrily questioned her on why she continues to focus on impeachment. President Donald Trump won Horn’s district in the 2016 presidential election, and eight Republicans announced they will run for her vulnerable seat in 2020, according to the Oklahoman.

“As an independent voter, I think you’re in a lot of trouble if you vote for this impeachment,” said Edmond, Oklahoma, resident Susan Jaslow, the Oklahoman reported. Jaslow voted for Horn in 2018, but said she is part of a group of independent voters upset about the impeachment circus.

“If she votes for impeachment, she’s screwed,” Jaslow added.

“We want Congress to get back to work for the American people, please,” said Ronda Peterson, who identified herself as a conservative. Peterson said Congress has been obsessed with impeaching Trump all year.

Horn responded to Peterson by saying, “It’s frustrating for me.” Horn has said she has not made up her mind about impeachment, and her press secretary told the Daily Caller she is “reviewing the articles of impeachment” and “has not announced a decision.”

“Because that’s not what I’m doing on a day-to-day basis,” Horn told Peterson. “I didn’t run to impeach anybody. I ran to fight for Oklahoma, for education, for health care … and that’s where I’ve been spending my time.”

  1. These five Democrats should be doomed

According to Lifezette, these five Democrats should be doomed due to their vote against President Trump and his impeachment.

There will be a political price to pay for moderate and freshman Democrats if they vote for impeachment and if President Donald Trump carried their districts in the 2016 general election.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) must know this, but nevertheless she plows on, held hostage, some believe, by her party’s far-Left wing.

By pushing the Trump impeachment, she could even be imperiling her own speakership.

But apparently personal animus toward the president and fear of her own Left “trump” political sense.

Here are the five House Dems who will most suffer for her blind obstinacy if they follow her down the impeachment path.

JoeCunningham1.) Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-S.C.). The attorney won narrowly by one point in last year’s midterms on an anti-off shore drilling campaign. But Trump took the district by 13 points in 2016.

South Carolina is deep red and his chances do not look good anyway.

Tie an impeachment vote around his neck — and he’s a goner.

2.) Rep. Anthony Brindisi (D-N.Y.). Trump took New York’s 22nd Congressional District by 15 points in 2016 and Brindisi won by two in 2018.

This upstate district looks solid for Trump (this particular district extends from the east end of Lake Ontario through Central New York to the Pennsylvania border, including Utica, Rome and Binghamton).

And with the president on the 2020 ballot, if Brindisi votes for impeachment, he will get hurt — a lot.

3.) Rep. Kendra Horn (D-Okla.). Oklahoma is one of the most politically conservative states in America. President Trump won its 5th Congressional District there by 14 points in 2016. Horn, an attorney, won by one meager point in 2018.

She has so far out-fundraised her possible GOP opponents.

But the power of incumbency can be responsible for that. Odds are, with the president running this year, she is toast. Add a yes vote on impeachment — and the GOP can pick the curtains.

4.) Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.). Staten Island is a GOP island surrounded by a New York City sea of blue. Trump won in the Staten Island borough by 10 points in 2016. Rose won by 6 in 2018.

Though not that far apart in numbers, the current trend and the district’s history indicate a strong Trump showing in 2020.

If Rose, an Army combat veteran, bucks his district and favors the impeachment of the president, he can kiss that six-point spread goodbye — and he puts himself in serious peril.

5.) Rep. Xochitl Torres-Small (D-N.M.). Trump won this district by 10 percentage points in 2016 and Torres-Small, a water rights lawyer, won it by 2 in 2018.

As some of her support probably came from Democrat moderates who do not support impeachment, there isn’t a good range of options for her when it comes to an impeachment vote. Just as in many close Dem seats, if she votes yes, she loses some moderates.

A “no” vote — and her base deserts her. She can afford neither in that district.

Also of note: Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.). Not a freshman, Collin Peterson is a conservative Democrat and the only Dem who could hold onto a district that went for Trump in a landslide in 2016 by 31 points.

(Read more at Lifezette)

These five Democrats all voted for the impeachment of Trump. Now, they need to pay.

Since little else but omnibus spending bills has made it out of both the Senate and House, none of these Democrats have any accomplishments to brag about (unless they want to brag about impeaching President Trump). So, if you do not support the impeachment of President Trump, you need to make these do-nothing Democrats pay.

Bias crops up in Twitter & Google again


Shadow banning written into Twitter’s new terms of service

As reported at the Russian Times (a source that seems to be gathering support among Democrats as of the Schiff hearings), changes upcoming to the Twitter terms of service have become central. Considering that the Russian Times seems to be a mouthpiece for the Russian government (and not necessarily viewpoints that align with the points of view promoted by Twitter), one can see how this might become a central point.

Anyway, RT and Twitter-user David Reaboi make the following observations:

TwitterLogoTwitter’s new terms of service will allow the platform to “shadow ban” users – secretly suppressing their content. While critics have long suspected the company of doing it, the new rules appear to make the practice official.

Taking effect in January 2020, Twitter’s new terms initially don’t look like much to write home about, but some tweaks to the language could have larger repercussions for users, limiting their reach behind the scenes without their knowledge.

“We may also remove or refuse to distribute any Content on the Services, limit distribution or visibility of any Content on the service, suspend or terminate users, and reclaim usernames without liability to you,” the new terms state (emphasis added).

With the addition of those four words, the company is telling users it reserves the right shadow ban or “throttle” certain accounts. On what basis will it make those decisions – or whether they will be made solely by an automated algorithm – remains unclear.

While Twitter has previously insisted point-blank “We do not shadow ban,” in the pre-2020 terms the company split hairs between shadow banning and “ranking” posts to determine their prominence on the site, and acknowledged deliberately down-ranking “bad-faith actors” to limit their visibility.

In January 2018, moreover, conservative media watchdog group Project Veritas published footage showing Abhinov Vadrevu, a former Twitter software engineer, discussing shadow banning as a “strategy” the company was at least considering, if not already using.

“One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control. The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned, because they keep posting and no one sees their content,” Vadrevu said.

Because these social media venues seem to be the best way to reach a larger audience, I have just accepted these revisions of the terms of service

However, rather than “clicking and continuing,” maybe we should find a better venue.

Another possible venue comes through Gab, where you can follow and be followed by me. Gab presents an alternative to Facebook.

Project Veritas Docs: Google Employees Use Coffee Beans to Explain Diversity Hiring

Breitbart reported on Project Veritas and their exposure of Google might have skirted hiring laws in their drive for diversity.

farmer_collecting_coffee_beansSome Google employees are using a strange analogy involving colored coffee beans to explain and promote diversity hiring, according to newly released internal documents published Wednesday by Project Veritas.

In one email exchange, a Google employee warns against sharing the document externally, citing potential legal concerns. Another found the analogy “too reductive.”

The documents are part of a larger leak from Google insider Zachary Vorhies, who turned over the documents to Project Veritas and has reportedly given more than 950 documents to the Department of Justice’s Antitrust division.

Diversity hiring has become a contentious issue at the world’s most-used search engine. Google was sued last year by a YouTube human resources employee who alleged that the company stopped hiring white and Asian male employees to technical roles in 2017 to improve employee diversity rankings throughout the company.

Former Google employee James Damore has alleged in his class-action lawsuit that Google’s definition of diversity is “women or individuals who were not Caucasian or Asian.”

Project Veritas published Wednesday an internal document titled Coffee Beans, or What Does Diversity Hiring Mean Anyway?, which relies on a complex analogy in which coffee quality must be optimized by using a blend of orange and teal-colored coffee beans. Orange beans are more abundant while teal beans are rarer.

“This document is not meant to describe an official Google policy. It is an analogy to help explain diversity hiring,” the paper states.

The document argues that in order to achieve an optimal coffee blend, “you would pick as many easily accessible ​orange​ beans as you could” but at the same time “you would spend ​more time looking for​ the ​teal​ beans, and you would ​spend more time evaluating​ them… to make sure you didn’t throw any away.”

The document concludes: “That’s what the high tech companies are doing with diversity hiring — they are looking harder for the under-represented groups and they are spending more time/effort making sure they don’t throw any of the good ones away.”

In a leaked email released by Project Veritas, one Google employee expresses the desire to share the document externally. But another cautions against it, saying that it “seems to misrepresent Google’s hiring practices in a way that could raise legal questions.”

The Google employee also expresses reservations about the analogy.

Drudge sells to Google

According to Investment Watch, Matt Drudge may have sold out to big tech.

drudgeIf you’ve noticed that @DRUDGE_REPORT isn’t the same any more, you’re not alone.

A friend writes:

“Ron, what is going on with @DRUDGE and his recently ending his decade long independent advertising agency for his website?

“He recently signed on with a Google affiliated company, which purchased Matt Drudge’s father’s website, RefDesk, as part of the deal.

“Frankly, I’m concerned this is the sole reason Drudge went mainstream and to the left: to satisfy his new advertising agency.

“The agency is called Granite Cubed. The timing of when all this went down is not a coincidence.

“I’ve been a reader of the site daily for 15 years. His entire message, his ‘tone and timbre’ shifted – full-on establishment approved at the same time the deal was made.”

When I asked my friend if I could share this, he said,

“Sure. Buzzfeed mentioned this months ago, but it got very little play. The Buzzfeed story on it was, oddly, and for the first time ever, a fluff piece for Drudge.

“Buzzfeed and its progeny have never once written about Drudge without a few gratuitous hits mocking his personal life or political views. Until now…”

Drudge mystery: The brand lives, but who runs it and where is Matt?

The World Tribune reported in a 25 October 2019 article that others have noticed problems with Drudge.

Matt-Drudge-So, has Drudge had a falling out with the White House? Is he just angling for clicks? Has he gone further into reclusion and delegated the site to others? Or has he sold out and allowed a Google off-shoot to drive a a media giant that now overshadows the once dominant news organizations that it has linked to since its inception?

The famously reclusive Drudge attended two White House Correspondents Dinners in 2000 and 2001 and then dropped out of public view.

WorldTribune Editor Robert Morton, then also a senior editor at The Washington Times, invited him to those two dinners. “The late Andrew Breitbart was his assistant in those years and when I last saw Andrew in 2008, he said he had not seen Matt in years,” Morton said.

Drudge’s site has remained pretty much the same since its rise to prominence during the Clinton impeachment drama.

But a significant change occurred over the summer when the Drudge Report dropped its advertising representative of close to 20 years, Intermarkets, in favor of a new and unknown company Granite Cubed.

Buzzfeed News reported:

In a surprising turn, Drudge Report removed ads between the end of May and mid-July, according to Danny Rogers, a cofounder of the Global Disinformation Index, a project that’s analyzing domains to generate “risk ratings of the world’s media sites.” After noticing an absence of ads on Drudge around May 31, “we didn’t see any ads on Drudge until about July 12,” Rogers told BuzzFeed News.

“Any time a 20-year relationship comes to an end is certainly a surprising turn of events,” said Jay Friedman, president of Goodway Group, a digital agency that specializes in programmatic media buying.

Corporate records show that Granite Cubed is owned by Margaret Otto. She and her husband, Adrian, have a business association with the Drudge family that goes back years. The couple acquired Refdesk, a reference website founded by Bob Drudge, Matt’s father, in 2017. They also operated a company that began hosting the Drudge Report in 1999 and later added Breitbart as a customer. (The couple did not answer questions about whether they still own that hosting company or if it’s still hosting Drudge or Breitbart.)

Friedman said the connections between the Ottos and Drudges raise a question of whether the move to Granite Cubed is “a relationship play [or] a revenue maximization play,” given that today’s representation firms need to be “incredibly technically savvy and have a really good grasp on how to [succeed] in an automated ad market.”

Drudge was characteristically silent when emailed by BuzzFeed News for comment about his new advertising partner and the strategy for his site. His old partners were also hesitant to speak, reinforcing how one of the web’s most influential websites remains in many ways a one-man black box.

“Intermarkets no longer represents DrudgeReport.com, and it is our policy to not discuss former clients with the media,” said Kevin Lucido, the CEO of Intermarkets, which represents other conservative publishers, such as the Media Research Center and the Political Insider.

For his part, Bob Drudge said in an email, “I am retired and have no comment.”

It all makes for a startling shift for a publisher best known for a strategy rooted in changing nothing about his site’s operation. It’s also causing the ad industry to look closely at the mysterious new firm and its high-profile customer.

Author and political commentator Jerome Corsi has repeatedly tweeted about the shift in coverage, saying Drudge has “lost his mind,” “turned left,” and become a “leftist hack beating [the] impeachment drum.”

Rush Limbaugh, a friend of Matt Drudge, has also chimed in on the matter. In late August, Limbaugh told a caller that he’s repeatedly been asked about the sudden shift to the left at the Drudge Report. “My email inbox every day, ‘What’s happening to Drudge, Rush?’ ” Limbaugh said. “And I tell people, ‘Have you ever heard of clicks?’ ”

The Drudge Report, which was seen as being solidly in President Donald Trump’s corner during and after the 2016 presidential election, has recently been linking to some of the president’s fiercest critics on impeachment.

After some suggested Drudge could be turning on Trump for web traffic, Limbaugh said, “I actually don’t know,” adding that as a “professional courtesy” he doesn’t “ask him.”

With claims of harm threatened, this sounds like a cross between a thriller and a knock off of the “Blair Witch”

So my first question is, does Matt Drudge have any connection to Hillary Clinton?

If he does, he should avoid New York jails and prisons, beaches, railroads, air planes, apartment windows, rivers, lakes, and closed rooms. For more information on why Matt should exhibit such caution, refer to the Clinton Body Count — just not too loudly.

Conservative Student Blues


Survey: Almost Half of Conservative Students Claim Their Profs Rant Against Donald Trump

Breitbart reports on a survey by The College Fix that reports the sad state of conservative students in American colleges.

TheCollegeFixA new survey suggests that professors at American colleges and universities are frequently using their classrooms to rant against President Donald Trump. The survey polled over 1,000 conservative college students around the country, finding that almost 50 percent had experienced anti-Trump rants in the classroom.

According to a survey commissioned by The College Fix, almost 50 percent of Republican college students claim that their professors use class time to criticize President Trump.

The survey, which was conducted by College Pulse, revealed that 46 percent of Republican students said that their professors are openly engaging in leftist activism in the classroom. For students majoring in the social sciences, the arts, and the humanities, this percentage was even higher.

Students were encouraged to provide comments on their experiences with activist professors. One student noted that his professor cried in class after Trump was elected. Another student said that their professor forced them to watch CNN for 30 minutes during class time.

“CU boulder is a great spot if you want to hear bullshit from professors about how bad this country is,” one student from the University of Colorado Boulder wrote. “Literally had one teacher cry in class when he got elected. I payed to learn, not hear propaganda from professors.”

Admittedly, silence in the face of economic partners stands as the norm

In the business world, talking about religion, politics, and other touchy topics normally do not come up (unless the senior partner — such as the customer in a transaction — makes a favorable indication). Therefore, maybe some of this might work as preparatory exercises for the conservative students.

However, since college purports itself to be a conversation among peers, surely there should be some equity reflected here. For we surely can civilly share our ideas among friends — even when we disagree.

Study: Conservative Students Feel Unable to Express Views at UK Universities

Breitbart reports on a study on conservative students in the United Kingdom.

A study has found that a majority of conservative students feel unable to express their political opinions at university.

KingsCollegeResearchers at King’s College London’s Policy Institute asked 2,000 students their thoughts on free speech on campus. Fifty-nine per cent of Conservative-voting young Britons said they were reluctant to express their views at university.

They showed far greater reluctance than those on the left of the political spectrum, with just 37 per cent of Liberal Democrat and 36 per cent of Labour student voters expressing the same hesitation. Green party supporters were the most confident expressing their political views, with just 32 per cent expressing any reluctance to do so.

Overall, one-quarter say they feel unable to express their views because they are scared of disagreeing with their peers, according to the research published on Thursday.

However, the students also revealed that they think freedom of expression is more at risk in broader society than at university: 22 per cent of students believe freedom of speech is under threat at their institutions, but over half (51 per cent) think it is at risk in British society.

The sample was compared to answers from 2,000 members of the general public, with both groups finding some commonality. The vast majority of students (81 per cent) and the public (78 per cent) say that freedom of speech is now more critical than ever. Nearly two-thirds of both parties (64 per cent of students and 60 per cent of the general public) also think that young people today are less accepting of offensive or challenging speech than young generations of the past.

Since Britain seems to lead America when it comes to possible forms of liberal lunacy, look out for this

In Britain, where they limit the access to guns (but cannot seem to get a handle on their stabbing murders for several years), seems to want to limit speech rights of conservatives. Take care that this, like their growing Islamism, does not jump the pond.

The latest Google blacklist includes the Daily Caller, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, The Christian Post, and so many more

OneNewsNow points out through a 15 August 2019 article how liberals at Google have directed Internet traffic away from conservative sites like Rush Limbaugh, the Daily Caller, and The Christian Post.

File_appears_to_show_ranking_classifier_to_define_channel

Silicon Valley is known as a mecca for left-wing progressives but evidence keeps growing that Big Tech really despises conservatives.

A crisis of conscience prompted Zach Vorhies, a Google senior software engineer, to go to James O’Keefe at Project Veritas – first anonymously, but now publicly – with hundreds of documents that prove the anti-conservative bias at the search engine behemoth.

Vorhies told O’Keefe that conservative news sites have become the latest target.

“This is a blacklist,” he said of the targeted sites, “one of many blacklists that are at Google.”

Google’s influence on the Internet is staggering — it averages a couple hundred million searches per hour — but the rogue Google engineer advised that blacklisting blocks websites such as The Christian Post and The Daily Caller beneath the Google search bar.

Among other organizations targeted are The Gateway Pundit and LifeNews, and conservative talk hosts Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.

Google is also playing god with the Left, too, restricting access to liberal groups such as Media Matters on the basis that it promotes only “mainstream” news organizations via its Google News service.

If any liberalism survives, we need to return to classic liberalism that stood on the liberal exchange of ideas

For America to survive, we must conserve our once liberal thought: a freedom of sharing information and advancement of civil liberties under the rule of law with an emphasis on economic freedom.

Google obviously does not believe enough in the persuasive power of its own side’s ideas enough to promote those ideas. Rather, Google chose to blacklist political commentators, bloggers, and news organizations who seek the truth rather than cover for Democrats. Luckily, there is a whistleblower at Google and several honest news outlets available through Project Veritas and Christianity Today, who provided the blacklist.

Once you have seen the list, you might consider how Google’s side includes gaffe machine Joe Biden, wild-haired Bernie, and Lie-a-watha — then you might start to understand why Google chose to undercut the competition rather than try to argue for their own side.

Although I will always forcefully advocate for Christianity, I will also fight for everyone else’s freedom to err. I am following my God and my God is a gentleman who does not force Himself on the unbelieving. Unlike Google and advocates of Sharia law, I will follow God’s model.

Report: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib display more anti-Semitism

Breitbart discusses in a 17 August 2019 article an anti-Semitic cartoon shared by Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar

Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) both reportedly shared an antisemitic cartoon by an artist who participated in Iran’s Holocaust denial contest on their respective Instagram accounts on Friday, according to Forward editor Batya Ungar-Sargon.

Ungar-Sargon noticed that Omar and Tlaib had each shared the image on their Instagram “stories.” Both were barred from entering Israel Thursday because of their support for the “boycott, divestment, sanctions” (BDS) movement. Tlaib then applied for a humanitarian visa so she could visit her grandmother in a Palestinian village, promising not to promote boycotts of Israel while traveling there. Her request was granted, but she then turned down the offer Friday, claiming that Israel was trying to silence her.

The cartoon Omar and Tlaib reportedly shared shows Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with his hand over Tlaib’s mouth, and U.S. President Donald Trump with his hand over Omar’s mouth. Both leaders are shushing the congresswomen. A Star of David — the symbol of the Jewish faith — appears in the center of the image, implying that Jews are responsible for the act of silencing.

The image is antisemitic on its face. The theme of Jews controlling world leaders, who in turn do their bidding, especially in suppressing criticism, has been a common theme in antisemitic propaganda since Nazi Germany, and remains a frequent feature of antisemitic cartoons in the Arab and Muslim world. The New York Times faced criticism for a similar antisemitic cartoon it published in its international edition in April.

Making matters worse, as Ungar-Sargon pointed out, is the fact that this particular cartoonist, Carlos Latuff, won second place at a contest held by Iran in 2006 at which contestants drew caricatures denying the Holocaust. The contest was held in response to a Danish newspaper’s contest to draw images of Mohammed, which is prohibited by Islamic law, to challenge the self-censorship of Western media. Iran has promoted Holocaust denial as official policy; its president at the time, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was notorious for his habit of denying the Holocaust.

These women speak as if we don’t know their history or that of Miftah

When these women complain, they seem to forget that the rest of the world has access to their own hateful comments and the history of the groups they choose to join.

Therefore, Rashida Talib, don’t think that we have forgotten your call for the one-state solution (elimination of Israel). Don’t think that we’ve forgotten your tweet accusing US representatives of dual loyalty due to their support of Israel. Despite the millions of Arab, Muslim Israelis, you claim that Israel discriminates against “darker skinned” peoples. We also remember how you get a “calming feeling” when you think of the Holocaust. Likewise, we remember your false claim that Palestinians gave Jews a “safe haven” from the Holocaust.

If bad company corrupts good morals, what will the bad company of Hamas supporters and Miftah (who proudly praised female suicide bombers and pushed the medieval blood libel). Why haven’t we heard of the pride of Miftah, one of whom killed 13 Israeli children on a bus or another who killed multiple children in an Israeli pizza parlor? Since this is the group that would have led both you (Tlaib) and your friend (Omar) on your tour, why haven’t we heard of this group?

When it comes to Ilhan Omar (if you want to call her that, rather than the true name that she lied about when escaping her past), then don’t forget her now-deleted tweet:

Also don’t forget how she refused to back down from her first tweet and added in a response to a detractor:

Drawing attention to the apartheid Israeli regime is far from hating Jews. You are a hateful sad man, I pray to Allah you get the help you need and find happiness.

In February, she tweeted (but subsequently deleted) “It’s all about the Benjamin’s, baby” in reference to her false claim that a pro-Israel group was bribing Congress. Later, she tweeted a complaint that she should not have to “pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee.” (To this, I would remind the woman that it is in the interest of this republic to support the only democracy in the Middle East. Additionally, we benefit from ongoing friendliness toward us — as opposed to the antagonism of Syria, Iran, and other Islamic states — and their prosperity.)

Miftah, a terrorist-supporting group, would have sponsored Tlaib & Omar to Israel

In a 19 August 2019 OneNewsNow article, we find a few details about the group that would have sponsored the radical Muslim Congresswomen.

One fact reportedly “whitewashed” by the mainstream media in all its coverage about the trip Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) planned to Israel is that it was sponsored by an Islamic terrorism-supporting group.

The two Muslim congresswomen did not plan their trip via the conventional bipartisan route.

“The most important element of the story is the fact that two American congresswomen shunned a bipartisan congressional delegation to Israel to go on an independent trip to Israel sponsored by vicious anti-Semites,” National Review reported. “Another important element of the story is that – as of [Friday] – the mainstream media have whitewashed Omar and Tlaib’s vile associations.”

The Washington Examiner reported that only one of seven Associated Press reports on the Omar-Tlaib Israel visit mentioned Miftah, with the six others merely calling it a Palestinian advocacy group – similar to reports by the New York Times. The Los Angeles Times and Washington Post both referred to Miftah as “a nonprofit organization headed by Palestinian lawmaker” with the latter associating it to “longtime peace negotiator Hanan Ashrawi.” Reuters, ABC News and Yahoo did not mention Miftah’s anti-Semitic nature and Bloomberg News omitted its mention entirely.

Miftah glorifies these terrorists

In a 16 August 2019 National Review article, we find some of the particulars about Miftah:

The group celebrates terrorists, including an evil woman who helped murder 13 Israeli children. In an article titled “Let Us Honor Our Own,” a Miftah contributor describes Dalal Al Mughrabi as “a Palestinian fighter who was killed during a military operation against Israel in 1978” and as one of the Palestinian people’s “national heroes.”

The so-called “military operation” is more widely known as the “Coastal Road Massacre,” a bus hijacking that resulted in the deaths of 38 Israeli civilians, including 13 children.

Al Mughrabi is hardly the only terrorist Miftah celebrates. It described female suicide bomber Wafa Idrees as the “the beginning of a string of Palestinian women dedicated to sacrificing their lives for the cause.” It singles out for recognition Hanadi Jaradat, a woman who blew herself up in a restaurant, killing 21 people (including four children).

The founder of Miftah herself, Ms. Ashrawi, excused jihadist violence by telling an interviewer that “you cannot somehow adopt the language of either the international community or the occupier by describing anybody who resists as terrorist.”

And of course Miftah published an article asking whether Israel was a proper homeland for the Jewish people:

Murder must never be glorified

We can never allow murder to be glorified, no matter what the Quran, Hadith, and Sira say regarding killing of unbelievers — Christians must never abandon grace when dealing with offenses against ourselves. Although I believe that we have a duty to protect the defenseless (as shown in Psalm 82:3-4; Proverbs 24:11-12 and 31:8-9; and Matthew 7:12 and 18:14 [and many other verses]) and are given liberty to protect ourselves (as shown in Luke 22:36), we must primarily be ministers of grace.

Teacher’s rejection of student’s gender identity prompts training

According to a 19 August 2019 article at Houston Fox affiliate KRIV, a Florida school district will require re-education of a teacher for unapproved opinions.

TransTripe

Teachers and staff in a Florida school district will be given additional diversity training after a high school math instructor refused to call a transgender student by her chosen gender identity.

First Coast News in Jacksonville reports that teacher Thomas Caggiano wrote in an email to the student “I will NOT refer to you with female pronouns … If this is not acceptable for you, change classes.”

Caggiano wouldn’t comment to the television station.

Sandalwood High School Principal Dr. Saryn Hatcher promised to “handle” it and wrote to the student that her wishes would be honored.

Duval County Public Schools spokeswoman Laureen Ricks says the teacher’s behavior is inconsistent with the district’s policy and expectations. She calls it a teachable moment and says staff will undergo additional diversity training.

We have to admit that we saw this coming

As early as 2006, the Huguenins of Elaine Photography were sued for not providing wedding photography to a gay couple. Soon thereafter, Baronelle Stutzman, Melissa Klein, and many other bakers found themselves in the crosshairs of the radical gay agenda for refusing to participate in gay weddings.

The ink on the Obergefell versus Hodges decision in the Supreme Court had hardly dried and so, therefore, the “right” of gays to marry had only recently been recognized when Kentucky’s Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Never mind that there were numerous counties across Kentucky where marriage licenses were being handed out.

So, it comes as no surprise that teachers are being sent to re-education for not toeing the gay line.

Joey Gibson, Patriot Prayer leader, turns self in to jail

Oregon Live reports in a 17 August 2019 article how Joey Gibson, a leader at Patriot Prayer, turned himself in to jail because he has been linked to a fight outside of a Portland bar.

Joey-Gibson-leader-of-Vancouver-based-right-wing-group-Patriot Prayer

Joey Gibson, leader of Vancouver-based right-wing group Patriot Prayer, turned himself in to the downtown Portland jail Friday in connection with charges linked to a May Day melee outside a Portland bar.

Before entering the Multnomah County Detention Center, Gibson held a news conference outside the jail drawing about two dozen people. Wearing a hat with a label that read “what goes around comes around” and a t-shirt with Bible verse “John 3:16”, Gibson told spectators that he believed he was being unfairly targeted and he was innocent of engaging in or inciting any violence on May 1 outside of Cider Riot.

“I stood on a sidewalk and was assaulted numerous times,” Gibson, 35, said. “This is without a doubt an attack on the First Amendment.”

He also urged people to attend Saturday demonstrations in downtown Portland, to not engage in violence, and if they’re arrested, to do so while in the midst of peaceful protest.

Gibson said he was on the fence on whether to attend before learning of his riot charge Thursday. He was being held in jail on $5,000 bail and released after posting bail at 3:50 p.m., jail staff said.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in court Monday.

“Patriot Prayer and their affiliates showed up, and started pepper-spraying people on our property,” said Cider Riot owner Abram Goldman-Armstrong.

A differing message from Patriot Prayer and Steven Crowder

When we go to the Patriot Prayer Facebook page, they say:

As Joey Gibson (Freedom & God activist) was walking the streets of Portland trying to get to his ride, antifa spots him. Within minutes an entire mob surrounds him. Some are polite, some are not.

Joey Gibson is being politically charged with a felony for exercising his right to stand on a public sidewalk and record people at the Antifa bar called “Cider Riot!”. Cider Riot fundraises, recruits, and hosts events for Rose City Antifa and other organizations that advocate for violence against Christians and conservatives. He stood there and recorded while the bar employees and customers pepper sprayed Gibson. None of them were arrested.

Things that should give us pause regarding China, Hong Kong, gun control, and the Second Amendment


Chinese “paramilitary” at Hong Kong border

Reuters reports in a 14 August 2019 article that “paramilitary” forces have moved to the border of Hong Kong (in stark violation of the agreement made with Britain when Hong Kong was surrendered as a British colony).

Hong Kong braced for more mass protests over the weekend, even as China warned it could use its power to quell demonstrations and U.S. President Donald Trump urged his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, to meet with the protesters to defuse weeks of tensions.

Hundreds of China’s People’s Armed Police (PAP) on Thursday conducted exercises at a sports stadium in Shenzhen that borders Hong Kong a day after the U.S. State Department said it was “deeply concerned” about the movements, which have prompted worries that the troops could be used to break up protests.

ShenzhenSportsCenterParamilitaryParking

Trump told reporters on Thursday he did not want to see a resort to violence to quell the protests in Hong Kong and reiterated that he wanted to see China “humanely solve the problem.”

“I am concerned. I wouldn’t want to see a violent crackdown,” Trump said, speaking in Morristown, New Jersey. “If he (Xi) sat down with the protesters – a group of representative protesters – I’d bet he’d work it out in 15 minutes. … I know it’s not the kind of thing he does, but I think it wouldn’t be a bad idea.”

Patriots, think about these things regarding the mainstream media and how they frame this conflict

In the United States of America, “paramilitary” brings up images of overweight guys in worn-out fatigues bought at the Army Surplus store. These guys likely spend some part of their weekends shooting holes in cans or putting meat on the table by hunting small game.

Truthfully, although I have never belonged to any paramilitary group, I support the overall goals of such groups. I support the freedom afforded by the Second Amendment. I support those who put in the time needed to be prepared to defend against threats against their families. Additionally, I support the patriotism and other elements of preparedness often associated with these groups.

However, the “paramilitary” that the American “news” agencies refers to seems to come equipped with hundreds of vehicles with turrets and what seem to be guns.

ShenzhenSportsCenterVehiclesWithTurrets

This should be a reason for pause.

Even though this might just be a threat against the Hong Kong protesters, these “paramilitary” forces might be deployed against people who have no guns and no body armor. These Hong Kong citizens definitely do not have military-grade rifles or side arms.

Therefore, with the power of words, the American press has equated six-wheeled tanks and armored personnel carriers with non-professional weekend warriors. Reuters wants the headline readers to believe that little threat is offered against the brave people standing up for what little rights they have left.

Think about this the next time a Democrat calls for the American people to be disarmed and the press paints a sad picture in support of the Democrat.

Trump ties China trade deal to Hong Kong protest

In a 15 August 2019 article by Fortune, Trump’s tweet brings the Hong Kong protests into the China trade deal.

HongKongMillions.png

President Donald Trump late Wednesday seemed to conflate the protests in Hong Kong with the U.S.’s trade war with China. “Of course China wants to make a deal. Let them work humanely with Hong Kong first!” he tweeted. If Trump thought wielding the Hong Kong protests as leverage in the ongoing U.S.-China trade war would prompt concessions from Beijing, he seemed to have miscalculated—by a large margin.

Trump turned his Twitter attention to the growing unrest in Hong Kong on Wednesday, when he urged those involved to “be calm and safe” amid reports that the Chinese government was amassing troops on the border with Hong Kong. He later picked up the thread, looping the ongoing trade war into the matter.

“I know President Xi of China very well,” Trump tweeted. “He is a great leader who very much has the respect of his people. He is also a good man in a ‘tough business.’ I have ZERO doubt that if President Xi wants to quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem, he can do it. Personal meeting?”

Trump’s decision to link the protests in Hong Kong with the trade war negotiations may have been a misstep, as it plays into China’s narrative of what the demonstrations are all about. Over the past two months, Beijing has repeatedly accused the U.S. of stirring up unrest in Hong Kong in order to serve the White House’s trade agenda. State media now runs news stories alleging that white foreigners attending the Hong Kong protests are actually CIA operatives instigating turmoil. The protesters themselves, meanwhile, cite demands for greater democratic freedoms as the reason for taking to the streets.

Think about how President Trump introduced this narrative

Although the press seems to want to downplay this narrative, President Trump bypassed them by putting the information out in a tweet (below).

However, had the President gone to CNN or CBS to spread his message, he would have been nearly silenced.

China Is Waging a Disinformation War Against Hong Kong Protesters

Even the New York Times recognizes in a 15 August 2019 article the measures taken by China against the Hong Kong protesters.

china-propaganda

When a projectile struck a Hong Kong woman in the eye this week as protesters clashed with the police, China responded quickly: Its state television network reported that the woman had been injured not by one of the police’s bean bag rounds, but by a protester.

The network’s website went further: It posted what it said was a photo of the woman counting out cash on a Hong Kong sidewalk — insinuating, as Chinese reports have claimed before, that the protesters are merely paid provocateurs.

The assertion was more than just spin or fake news. The Communist Party exerts overwhelming control over media content inside China’s so-called Great Firewall, and it is now using it as a cudgel in an information war over the protests that have convulsed Hong Kong for months.

In recent days, China has more aggressively stirred up nationalist and anti-Western sentiment using state and social media, and it has manipulated the context of images and videos to undermine the protesters. Chinese officials have begun branding the demonstrations as a prelude to terrorism.

Only a few observations regarding the review of the expected at the New York Times

First, for the most part, the violent images of the Hong Kong protests have been excised from our media because they don’t want to reflect badly on another socialist society (remember, Venezuela shot and killed its own unarmed citizens).

Second, this comes from the outfit (the NYTwits) that still accuses the Trump administration of treasonous acts performed in conjunction with the Russians despite the findings in the Mueller report.

Just as China has made westernization a boogeyman here, many of the New York Times articles depend on demonizing a person or groups. One prime example might be summarized as “Orange man bad.” Another might be the habit at the New York Times of associating Christians with Timothy McVeigh and Eric Rudolph.

Fourth, Google has worked with the Chinese government to suppress Internet searches within China, has blocked their Google Maps application to searches in China, and works with the Chinese military. Considering the left-leaning tendencies of Google, how might they use their findings to change elections across the globe (including in the US)?

Philadelphia shooting: Mayor calls for gun control

In a 15 August 2019 article by the BBC, several of the most common Democrat talking points on gun confiscation came out.

MayorKenney
Mayor Kenney calls for gun laws when multiple gun laws were already violated.

The mayor of Philadelphia has joined growing calls for gun control after a shootout in his city left six officers injured as they served a drug warrant.

“Our officers need help,” said Mayor Jim Kenney. “They need help with keeping these weapons out of these people’s hands.”

A gun battle broke out between police and a gunman on Wednesday, leading to a seven-hour stand-off.

The suspect reportedly carried a semi-automatic rifle and several handguns.

Mr Kenney called out politicians for their failure to address the gun crisis and confront the National Rifle Association’s powerful gun rights lobby.

“It’s aggravating, it’s saddening,” Mr Kenney said. “If the state and federal government don’t want to stand up to the NRA and some other folks, then let us police ourselves.”

He added: “Our officers deserve to be protected and they don’t deserve to be shot at by a guy for hours with an unlimited supply of weapons and an unlimited supply of bullets.”

US President Donald Trump also weighed in on the shooting, tweeting Thursday morning that the Philadelphia shooting suspect “should never have been allowed on the streets”.

“Long sentence – must get much tougher on street crime!” he wrote.

Pointing out the lies and fallacies

This article focuses on the following:

  1. Our sympathy and respect for the Philadelphia police who were fired upon
  2. Our assumed respect for those who are in positions of power (such as this mayor)
  3. The desire of many to be within a perceived majority (that is, we would also like to be with those who “joined growing calls”)
  4. Our assumed fear of scary-sounding weapons (“semi-automatic rifle and several handguns”)

Additionally, it gives primacy to the Democrat talking points by mentioning them first and more fully. The first six paragraphs (160 words) support the Democrat line of “reasoning.” Only after that is there any discussion of President Trump’s suggestion of more jail time for this repeat offender (two paragraphs encompassing 37 words).

Nonetheless, the BBC does not consider the following issues with their line of reasoning:

  1. The shooter was a drug dealer with previous drug and gun-related convictions. It was already illegal for him to own the guns. Adding more gun laws would not have stopped this criminal from committing this crime.
  2. It is illegal to try to kill or attempt to kill an officer of the law. This criminal had already determined to disobey this law when he pulled together his arsenal and began firing on the police.
  3. Both murder and attempted murder is illegal.
  4. Pennsylvania and Philadelphia have gun laws that were violated by this criminal. Adding another gun law would not prevent anything.
  5. Gun laws have little effect on murder rates. Look at Chicago, New York, and London.
  6. As jihadists have taught us, planes, bombs, cars, trucks, and knives can be used when guns are not available.

Five stories on real resistence to LGBT indoctrination


  1. Teen Who Said There Are Only Two Genders Expelled from School, GoFundMe Shut Down

Breitbart reports through a 4 July 2019 article that a 17-year-old Scottish boy has been suspended and given a final expulsion. “For what?” you might ask. He was expelled for recording his teacher tell him he could not say “There are only two genders” in class.

A Scottish 17-year-old who was suspended for filming his teacher telling him that he could not say in class that there are only two genders has been told he cannot return to his school.

UPDATE: YouTuber I, Hypocrite has launched a new <fundraising page on Fundly to support Murray.


idiotScottishTeacher

The Aberdeenshire pupil, named Murray, had shared the video to social media because, according to a friend, he wanted to expose the left-progressive, anti-scientific ideologies being taught at Scottish schools, and expressed concern that telling very young children that “boys are girls and girls are boys” is “a very dangerous thing”.

The viral footage revealed that the teen had been removed from class for stating that there are only two genders, with the teacher telling him that whilst the boy was entitled to his “opinion”, he could not share it at school because “the authority” and school policy dictated that there are many genders and to assert otherwise was “not acceptable” and tantamount to discrimination.

“I know what you think, and I know what the authority thinks, I know the authority’s point of view is very clear,” the teacher is heard saying.

Murray had been suspended for one week, according to the school on grounds of sharing the footage of his teacher without his consent, later tripled to three weeks. Now, the pupil has been told that he will not be able to return to Mearns Academy to finish his education, the Evening Standard reports.

Although I recognize that there are no free speech rights in Scotland, this is an affront to anyone who has ever claimed that liberals have even the least bit of compassion.

For nothing more than recording a teacher as that teacher stood for an anti-science, anti-common-sense liberal dogma — this young man had his educational accomplishments stripped.

  1. 10-year-old girl suspended for asking to be exempted from LGBT school lesson

According to a 1 July 2019 article at LifeSiteNews, a young woman stood up, asked to be exempted from a pro-LGBT lesson and (for that) was suspended along with a classmate (Farrell) who also stood against the indoctrination.

kaysey

A 10-year-old who was suspended from school for a week after asking her teacher permission to be excused from participating in a “Pride Month” LGBT lesson has gone on the record to explain the real dangers of the invasion of LGBT ideology in her school.

“Before anybody knew what LGBT meant, everybody knew what gender they were,” explained Kaysey, who, along with her classmate, Farrell, was suspended from the Heavers Farmer Primary School, located in Croydon, South London.

“But now people are confused,” continued the precocious 10-year-old, “and they’re saying that they’re bisexual and trans because they’re confused.”

“Before this happened, they were completely confident of who they were but now they’re not,” she added.

“It’s really affecting other kids,” explained Kaysey, “because now they’re losing confidence in [them]selves and looking at [them]selves and asking, ‘Why am I this person? Why can’t I be someone else?’”

“Before all this happened, people knew who they were,” said Kaysey. “School children are now facing the choice of what gender they are by the age of four.”

  1. Over 11,000 have supported the Christian kids suspended for resisting LGBT indoctrination

In yet another LifeSiteNews article (this one published on 3 July 2019) documents the great number of people who have supported the kids suspended for resisting LGBT lesson plans.

A LifeSiteNews petition supporting two British children suspended from school for their Christian faith has attracted more than 11,000 signatures.

Ten-year-old Kaysey and Farrell are both pupils of Heavers Farm Primary School in Croydon, a neighbourhood in South London. Last month, the children, a girl and a boy, asked their teacher if they could be excused from a lesson in which they were asked to color in LGBT “Pride Month” material. Although the children cited their religious objections, he refused and afterward allegedly accused them of “homophobic language.”

According to Christian Concern, a legal advocacy group, Farrell was accused of having said “LGBT sucks and LGBT’s dumb,” which he denies. The teacher asked the children if they wanted LGBT people to die, and they said that they didn’t. They said, however, that in their countries of origin they would be punished for being gay.

  1. Millenials are growing less tolerant of LGBTQ individuals

Through the lens of USA Today. it seems that the number of millennials supporting the LGBT movement have dropped.

faded_lgbtqia_flag

Young people are growing less tolerant of LGBTQ individuals, a jarring turn for a generation traditionally considered embracing and open, a survey released Monday shows.

The number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people slipped from 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018 – the only age group to show a decline, according to the annual Accelerating Acceptance report. And that is down from 63% in 2016.

Driving the dilution of acceptance are young women whose overall comfort levels plunged from 64% in 2017 to 52% in 2018, says the survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD.

“We count on the narrative that young people are more progressive and tolerant,” John Gerzema, CEO of The Harris Poll, told USA TODAY. “These numbers are very alarming and signal a looming social crisis in discrimination.”

  1. UK School Forced To Suspend LGBT Lessons Following Backlash From Angry Parents

By the word of a 5 March 2019 NewsPunch article, there was a (probably temporary) suspension of pro-LGBT lessons in the UK due to parental protests.

lgbt-lessons

The mainly Muslim parents said they were furious that homosexuality was being “aggressively” taught to their children.

Parkfield Community School in Birmingham, England, has now suspended its ‘No Outsiders’ classes until after Easter, while a consultation takes place with parents.

RT reports: Tensions between the school and parents have escalated due to a row surrounding LGBT lifestyles being taught in classrooms.

The ill-feeling from angry parents has even boiled over into threats against the assistant headteacher Andrew Moffat MBE, who is gay. He claims to have received “nasty emails” including one which warned he “wouldn’t last long.”

The primary school, which has around 740 pupils, is located in a predominantly Muslim area. It has come under fire from Muslim parents for implementing an LGBT programme which seeks to challenge homophobia, because homosexuality is strictly forbidden in Islam.

According to Alum Rock Community Forum, children were removed from classes over the school’s “undermining of parental rights and aggressively promoting homosexuality.”

The forum added that despite repeated petitions, protests and dialogue instigated by parents, they have been “arrogantly ignored.”

In a letter to parents, the trustee board of Excelsior Multi Academy Trust, which runs the school, confirmed lessons would be halted until the end of April.

Moffat had been piloting the programme, which had been running in parallel with sex and relationship education (SRE) lessons.

Obviously, for the lesson plans that caused Murray, Farrell, and Kaysey to be either suspended or expelled, this protest did not go far enough.

Eleven stories involving media bias and the border crisis


  1. Ocasio-Cortez Refuses To Respond To Her Claims That She Saw ‘People Drinking Out Of Toilets’ At Border Facility

Through a 1 July 2019 Daily Caller article, we find that AOC snubbed reporters when they asked her about her claim that guards required detainees to “drink from the toilet.”

AOCrefusesToAnswer

New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to respond when reporters pressed her Monday, asking about her claims that people were drinking out of the toilets at a border facility.

“These women were being told by CBP officers to drink out of the toilet,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “They were drinking water out of the toilet”

When asked by a reporter if she actually witnessed somebody drink out of a toilet, the freshman Democrat rolled up her car window and drove off.

My bet is that AOC’s antics are a diversionary tactic to hide the fact that she is among the members of Congress that blocked funds going to these detention centers.

  1. Inconsistencies Emerge After Ocasio-Cortez Said Migrants Were Told To Drink Water Out Of Toilets

As told by a 2 July 2019 Daily Caller article, it seems that there are holes in Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s story.

migrant-facility-toilet-drinking-fountain-640x480

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said migrant women held in a Customs and Border Protection facility were told to drink water out of toilets, but an agent has directly refuted the allegation and she has yet to clarify if she actually saw such an action occur.

“Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets. This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Monday after visiting her first CBP detention center that day. It was her first accusation that women in the Texas facility were being explicitly told by agents to drink water from toilets.

Ocasio-Cortez later spoke to reporters outside the facility, and her comments suggested she personally saw women drinking out of a toilet.

“These women were being told by CBP officers to drink out of the toilet. They were drinking water out of the toilet, and that was them knowing a congressional visit was coming. This is CBP on their best behavior,” the New York Democrat stated Monday. However, she did not provide an answer when a reporter asked if she personally witnessed this.

CBP

A CBP agent who was reportedly close by as Ocasio-Cortez toured the facility said the congresswoman is purposely misconstruing a story she heard.

“So this is what happened with the migrant and drinking water from toilet: She wanted water, didn’t know how to use the faucet in the cell and drank from the toilet. She never told AOC that we made her drink from the toilet. AOC, of course, changed it. … This was when she [the migrant] was apprehended and brought into the facility,” according to an unnamed agent who spoke with the Washington Examiner.

Considering all of the other stupid statements AOC has been able to get away with (for the time being), it would not surprise me to see her walking away from this fiasco (aided by the mainstream media).

On the other hand, had this been a Trump administration official who had made these comments …

  1. AOC: Trump running ‘concentration camps’ at border

Breitbart reminds us in an 18 June 2019 article that AOC famously stuck her stiletto-shod foot in her mouth with her comment on “never again.”

auschwits-birkenau

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday evening ratcheted up her attacks on the Trump administration’s immigration policies, referring to President Donald Trump as a “fascist” operating “concentration camps” on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,” Ocasio-Cortez said of migrant holding facilities during a Q&A live-streamed on Instagram. “The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it.”

The self-avowed Democratic-socialist then voiced her eagerness to connect with others “who are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘never again’ means something.”

The expression “never again” is strongly associated with Holocaust remembrance.

During another part of the live-stream, the 29-year-old freshman lawmaker warned her followers that “we are losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency.”

“I don’t use those words lightly,” she continued. “I don’t use those words to just throw bombs. I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist, and it’s very difficult to say that.”

“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it,” she added.

In November, Ocasio-Cortez faced blowback after comparing asylum seekers to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during World War II, attempting to make the point that neither was a “crime.” “Asking to be considered a refugee and applying for status isn’t a crime,” the congresswoman wrote on Twitter. “It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda. It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria. And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America.”

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez,

Please allow me to make the following comparisons between the real concentration camps of Nazi Germany and the object of your imagination:

Nazi concentration camps were associated with the following: US detention camps can be associated with the following:
Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, and other groups were taken from their home countries. Those entering the US illegally are coming by their own choice.
At least 2.7 million Jews were killed in the five concentration camps. Including suicides and deaths from diseases contracted before their detention, about 24 people have died in the detention centers.
The prisoners at the concentration camps were given little or no food. Those at the detention centers get three meals per day and two snacks.
The prisoners at the concentration camps were given insufficient clothing during the harsh winters. Those at the detention centers have been receiving clothing, diapers, soap, and other items.
The prisoners at the concentration camps were forced into hard labor. Until the June push by Democrats, child detainees could take classes in English, soccer, and other topics.
Many prisoners, especially Jewish twins, were subjected to medical experiments at the concentration camps. The Senate provides about $239 million for medical expenses and transportation for the detained illegal aliens.

  1. Report: Ocasio-Cortez Screamed At Federal Law Enforcement Agents ‘In A Threatening Manner’ While Visiting Border

In another 1 July 2019 Daily Caller article, the threatening and abusive behavior of AOC comes to the forefront.

ocasio-cortez-aoc-screamed-border-agents-theratening

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reportedly screamed at federal law enforcement officers Monday while visiting the U.S.-Mexico border.

The freshman Democrat screamed at law enforcement agents “in a threatening manner” during a visit to a U.S. Border Patrol facility in El Paso, Texas, according to The Washington Examiner’s Anna Giaritelli, and also reportedly refused to tour the facility.

The news comes just hours after Ocasio-Cortez sent out a tweet saying that she saw people “drinking out of toilets” inside the facilities and “officers laughing in front of members Congress.”

Too bad that AOC is offended that officers should choose to laugh in front of her. However, this might fall within their free speech rights.

  1. Hispanic pastors tour border facility lambasted by AOC and say they are ‘shocked by misinformation’

We find through a 2 July 2019 Fox News article that a group of Hispanic pastors have come out to stand against the lies of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

RevSamuelRodriguez

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez was “full of indignation” when he saw the reports and heard from politicians about the deplorable and inhumane conditions for illegal immigrants at an El Paso County, Texas migrant detention center. But what he saw at the same facility toured by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. with a group of pastors was “drastically different.”

The president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, the world’s largest Hispanic Christian organization, and senior pastor of New Seasons Christian Worship Center in Sacramento shared his firsthand experience touring a migrant detention center during a press briefing Monday.

“I read the reports, saw the news clips. I just wanted to see what was actually happening in order to better enable our efforts to find a fair and a just solution to our broken immigration system,” Rodriguez, who has advised President Trump and both Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush on immigration reform, noted. “To my surprise, I saw something drastically different from the stories I’ve been hearing in our national discourse. Even as a veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., I was shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border.”

The group of pastors saw a very different picture described by Ocasio-Cortez and other politicians and media outlets.

“We found no soiled diapers, no deplorable conditions and no lack of basic necessities,” Rodriguez remarked, adding he specifically asked border agents if they staged the facility in response to the negative press. “They unequivocally denied it — we were witnessing the identical conditions the attorneys saw when they toured the facility days earlier.”

In fact, some told him the sources from whom the negative coverage originated “never toured the areas of the facility that we toured” and speculated they might have had political motivations.

I don’t know about you, but I trust border patrol agents and pastors more than I trust Democrats.

I’m not that sure, but there is probably not anyone who I would believe less than AOC.

  1. House sends Trump $4.6B border bill, yielding to Senate

In a 28 June 2019 Associated Press article, we are shown how the resolve of the American people against the Democrat inaction resulted in the passage of a relief package for a crisis at the southern border.

Nancy Pelosi

The Democratic-controlled House voted Thursday to send President Donald Trump a bipartisan, Senate-drafted, $4.6 billion measure to care for migrant refugees detained at the southern border, capping a Washington skirmish in which die-hard liberals came out on the losing end in a battle with the White House, the GOP-held Senate and Democratic moderates.

The emergency legislation, required to ease overcrowded, often harsh conditions at U.S. holding facilities for migrants seeking asylum, mostly from Central American nations like Honduras and El Salvador, passed by a bipartisan 305-102 vote. Trump has indicated he’ll sign it into law.

“A great job done by all!” Trump tweeted from his overseas trip.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., reluctantly brought the Senate bill to a vote by after her plan to further strengthen rules for treatment of migrant refugees ran into intractable opposition from Republican lawmakers and Vice President Mike Pence. Many moderate Democrats split with Pelosi as well, undercutting her earlier efforts, which faded shortly after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he would swiftly reject them.

The legislation contains more than $1 billion to shelter and feed migrants detained by the border patrol and almost $3 billion to care for unaccompanied migrant children who are turned over the Department of Health and Human Services. It rejects an administration request for additional Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention beds, however, and contains provisions designed to prevent federal immigration agents from going after immigrants living in the country illegally who seek to care for unaccompanied children.

The funding is urgently needed to prevent the humanitarian emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border from worsening. The government had warned that money would run out in a matter of days.

The Senate bill passed Wednesday by an 84-8 vote, with Democrats there pleased with the deal they cut with Republicans controlling the chamber.

Of course, this is the bill that AOC and other Democrats spent over three months (17 times) blocking while they claimed that all of this was a “manufactured crisis.” However, now that they need something to run on, this now turns into a crisis.

  1. Central American Police Chief Claims Sought ISIS Suspects in Nicaraguan Custody

In a Breitbart article published on 24 June 2019, we find that the ISIS militants sought by police are now in Nicaraguan custody.

prisoners-hands-jail-handcuffs

The immigration chief in Costa Rica announced that the three ISIS terror suspects sought by international authorities have been caught in Nicaragua. The three men are expected to be sent back to Costa Rica and interviewed by international authorities.

The announcement came from by Costa Rican Immigration Police Chief Steve Madden Monday evening during an interview with multiple local news outlets. During the interview, Madden said the three ISIS terror suspects had entered Costa Rica on June 9 as part of a group of migrants that traveled north from Panama. Authorities allowed the three men into Costa Rica and then allowed to continue their journey after several biometric searches concluded the men were not wanted fugitives or sought by any country, Madden told Costa Rica’s Columbia newspaper. The three men have since been detained by Nicaraguan authorities where they denied the suspects permission to enter the country.

As Breitbart News first reported, U.S. authorities shared information with Mexican authorities about two men from Egypt and one from Iraq who authorities believe were headed towards the U.S. border. The three men — Ahmed Ghanim Mohamed Al Juburi from Iraq, and Ibrahim Mohamed and Mohamed Eissa from Egypt — entered Panama in May, a leaked intelligence memo obtained by Breitbart News revealed. In the memo, Homeland Security Investigations pointed to the use of biometric data to track the three suspects and claimed they were headed to the U.S. border.

With all of the rumors of Islamic prayer rugs being left at the border, there usually is nothing provided to substantiate the claim. Here, we have names, nationalities, and police reports.

Do you need another reason to close to southern border?

  1. Nicaragua Confirms Arrest of Fourth ISIS Terror Suspect

Breitbart reports in a 26 June 2019 article that the fourth ISIS militant has been caught.

Isis-terrorist-2

Nicaraguan authorities confirmed the arrests of four, not three ISIS terror suspects who entered the country as part of a migrant group with Costa Rican travel documents. Three of those men are the individuals Breitbart News first reported on, regarding an international alert from U.S. law enforcement agencies.

The Nicaraguan Army arrested the four men this week at an irregular crossing point known as Guacimada, Costa Rica’s Teletica reported. During questioning, the men presented migrant travel documents given to them by the Costa Rican government.

As Breitbart News first reported, three of the four men were flagged by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as ISIS terror suspects. According to a memo first published by Breitbart News, the DHS asked Mexico for help in locating three men who they believe were en route to the U.S. border. Prior to publishing the leaked document, Breitbart News confirmed with multiple law enforcement sources in Mexico that they were on high alert.

Well, here is the other reason some liberal people needed to close the border.

  1. Mexican Officials Confirm U.S. Warned Them About Suspected ISIS Terrorists Headed to Border

Breitbart tells us in a 24 June 2019 article that the US warned Mexico of the ISIS terrorists as those terrorists approached the border.

Mexican authorities are on high alert regarding three ISIS-linked terror suspects who are believed to be making their way from Central America to Mexico and potentially the U.S. border. Authorities were warned the suspects could try to enter Mexico within a large migrant group or with the help of human smugglers.

Breitbart News exclusively confirmed that Mexican Federal Police are on alert, preparing to encounter or arrest Ahamed Ghanim Mohamed Al Juburi from Iraq, and Ibrahim Mohamed and Mohamed Eissa from Egypt. The three men are believed to have entered through Panama in May, crossed through Costa Rica on June 9, and could be headed to Mexico, a leaked internal security memo revealed. The documents make reference to BITMAP, the U.S. Homeland Security Investigations’ Biometric Identification Transnational Migration Alert Program, a collection of databases on “special interest aliens, violent criminals, fugitives and confirmed or suspected terrorists encountered within illicit pathways.”

Likewise, Breitbart noted that the Mexican president also acknowledged America’s help in finding the ISIS terrorists.

  1. Joe Biden Campaigns on ‘Gut-Wrenching’ Photo of Drowned Migrant Father and Daughter

Through a 26 June 2019 article by Breitbart, we find that Joe Biden attempted to use the photo of an illegal alien and his daughter to help his campaign.

Drowned-Migrants

Former Vice President Joe Biden campaigned Wednesday on a horrific photo of a migrant father and daughter who drowned in the Rio Grande river while trying to cross into the United States.

“This image is gut-wrenching,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “The cruelty we’re seeing at our border is unconscionable.”

Biden blamed their deaths on Trump administration border enforcement officials rather than the open border policies promulgated by Democrats.

“History will judge how we respond to the Trump Administration’s treatment of immigrant families & children—we can’t be silent,” he wrote. “This isn’t who we are. This is not America.”

The image will likely be a top theme of the Democrat 2020 primary debate on NBC on Wednesday and Thursday nights.

Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez, a native of El Salvador, was swept away as he tried to cross the Rio Grande with his 23-month-old daughter.

The family appeared to be economic migrants, according to an interview with the man’s mother.

“I begged them not to go, but he wanted to scrape together money to build a home,” she told the Associated Press. “They hoped to be there a few years and save up for the house.”

The family left El Salvador on April 3, spending about two months at a shelter before attempting to cross the border on their own.

At least 170 migrants have been found dead in 2019 because of their journey to cross the southern border, according to the International Organization for Migrants’ Missing Migrant Project.

Because the trek to the USA is not safe, the most compassionate suggestion might be to tell these people to obey the law.

  1. 20 Times Breitbart Reported on Migrant Deaths During Obama-Biden Years and No One Cared

According to a 26 June 2019 Breitbart article, there have been at least 20 articles published by Breitbart during the Obama-Biden administration that chronicled illegal aliens who died crossing the border while no mainstream media batted an eye.

Body-of-Deceased-Migrant-in-Brooks-County-Texas-640x480

Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted an image of a migrant father and daughter who had died on the U.S.-Mexico border and he attempted to link the deaths to cruelty from President Donald Trump. However, Breitbart News consistently reported on the deaths of hundreds of migrants along the border during the Obama-Biden administration — horrors that then-Vice President Biden never spoke about during his time in the White House.

During the Obama-Biden administration, 535 migrants died in one Texas county alone — Brooks County. The county is located about 80 miles north of the Texas-Mexico border and is home to the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint on U.S. Highway 281.

Although I would love to re-publish their list of articles published and the included links, that seems too close to intellectual theft. Therefore, let me encourage you to read the list at Breitbart.
