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.”
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.

Remember Iran killed over 200 protesters in 2019
In early December 2019, even liberal CNN reported on Iran shooting to kill at least 208 of their own citizens who protested the raised gas prices. NBC News reported that as many as 1,000 Iranians may have been killed by the government.
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.”
Democratic 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.

Yep, never mind the money from Steyer or the endorsement of Sanders
Never mind the money taken from Steyer. That only makes AOC a standard Democrat hypocrit. Likewise, never mind AOC endorsing big money Sanders (who made all his dough while in office). That can also be ignored by the Democrat-loving press.

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.
Democratic 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.
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.

“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.

Like his protege (AOC), Bernie wants restriction on you, not him

Prison Inmates Made Calls for Michael Bloomberg’s Campaign
Breitbart reports that Bloomberg farmed out his phone calls to inmates.
Former 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.
“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.
CNN’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.
“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.”

After Refugee Camp ISIS Child Tells UK Reporter ‘We Will Slaughter You’, media ignores it
Breitbart shows us how a kid from an ISIS camp told a reporter “We will slaughter you.”
Children of Islamic State fighters and their brides in Syrian holding camps may represent a grave threat to the West, with one telling a British reporter: “We will slaughter you.”
“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.’”
Many Western countries are currently seeking to repatriate children born in the shattered caliphate to women who hold (or held) citizenship Western countries.

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.
The 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.”

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.”
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.

Registration came before confiscation in Germany and Australia
It happened in the Weimar Republic of Germany where law-abiding citizens complied, but the Communists and Nazis committing acts of political violence did not.
According to the Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, places that went from gun registration to gun confiscation include Soviet Russia, Red China, Cambodia, Kosovo, Great Britain, Australia, New York, and California.
Kentucky governor restores voting rights to 140K felons
CNN reports on how the Kentucky governor restored the voting rights of 140,000 felons.
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.”

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

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

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.
