- The case of AOC (the good side of gerrymandering)
Townhall informs us through a 31 December 2019 article how the 2020 census may cause AOC’s district to be redrawn.
We’ve heard this could be a possibility for quite some time: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s House district could be redrawn based on the 2020 census. And as Beth noted, New York is projected to lose one seat. This has not caught the fiery left-winger off guard. AOC has been known this could be a potential problem. It also highlights why Democrats threw a tantrum when the Trump administration proposed the very noncontroversial change to the 2020 census by including a citizenship question. In AOC’s district, almost a quarter of its residents are noncitizens. As expected, the areas that will be heavily impacted are Democratic bastions. It strikes at the heart of their political power and roadmap to obtaining control. Coddle these groups of people together and use them to create more districts favorable to Democrats based on ethnic representatives. Democrats have had phenomenal success doing this, hence the reason why they’re lax on border security, endear themselves to illegal immigration, and bash federal authorities tasked with enforcing laws in this area, hence the targeting of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents as the Gestapo in these circles.

Considering that we often find it very hard to get rid of incumbents, this might be the best news for that district
Even Senator Menendez has been returned to office after being “severely admonished” (not even censured) for his receipt of gifts (something normally called bribery). Therefore, getting AOC gerrymandered out of her seat may be a real blessing.
Hopefully, a few miracles of removal will happen with Tlaib and Omar (if that is Omar’s current last name).
- One Democrat takes up a campaign-killing cause: Buttigieg Calls For Carbon Pricing: ‘So Important’
Since Democrats think that they pay way too little for gasoline, we find through a 31 December 2019 Daily Caller article that Pete Buttigieg has been calling for a carbon tax.
2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg called for carbon pricing at a campaign event in Davenport, Iowa.
The South Bend, Indiana, mayor said Monday that Americans need to do the “right thing here at home,” adding that “that’s why carbon pricing is so important.”

The carbon tax, beside taxing an essential commodity, works as a multi-tier tax
This carbon tax not only will hit every citizen (and, therefore, cripple the poorest among us the most quickly), but also does so on multiple levels. You see, the tax will hit the manufacturer several times during creation phase of the product. Then the tax will pop up several times in its trip to market. Depending on what type of product has been created, the carbon tax may continue to apply.
Do you think that this will have an effect on the economy? You had better bet your bippy that it will.
Additionally, carbon tax will hit more things than just gasoline. It will also impact the price of diesel used to tun the local electric car charging station. Carbon tax will hit you in the stove if your house has a natural gas (methane) stove or heater. Do you burn heating oil? Guess what this will jack up?
Finally, do you buy anything that has been delivered to a store?
With a leading Democrat taking this position (that works against the working class and the poor), conservatives can take comfort that the Democrat causes do not work. Additionally, the Democrat causes have the potential of killing jobs. This should be pointed out and the “independent” voter should be made to think through their vote.
- Trump’s agenda of helping minority communities is a ‘policy legacy’
Townhall points out in a 30 December 2019 article that President Trump’s agenda of helping minority communities will create a ‘policy legacy.’
CBS News’ Major Garrett applauded President Donald Trump and his administration for making strides to help minority communities. According to Garrett, Trump’s successes are a “legacy” that “almost any president would want to claim.”
Garrett named a number of the administration’s successes, including funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and the passage of the FIRST STEP Act, which focuses on helping inmates reenter society and slow the recidivism rate.
“It can be fairly said that this administration, because of President Trump’s quiet prodding, has done quite a bit for funding of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The FIRST STEP Act, which was a massive first step towards criminal justice reform…” Garrett explained. “Just a couple weeks ago in this newly-signed defense bill there is a law that says if you are seeking work for the federal government or any contractor, you don’t have to be asked – and you can’t be asked – about your criminal history until right toward the end. That’s a significant change long sought by criminal justice advocates. Plus opportunities owned in the tax bill directed at communities of color.”
“That is a legacy, on the agenda side, that almost any president after three years, would want to claim,” Garrett concluded.

Considering how the welfare system set up by President Johnson destroyed the Black family and still built a legacy, President Trump’s actual reduction of Black unemployment should build a legacy
In other news, it was announced that the unemployment for Blacks and Hispanics again reached historic lows. When you consider that this law give people a chance to sell their skills before they can be asked about the criminal past that they are trying to work beyond — this allows people to work beyond their mistakes and seek forgiveness.
- Southern Hispanics for Trump
In what seems to be a follow-on article to the above presentation, Townhall details why Southern Hispanics have come to support President Trump.
The Democratic Party is great at capturing the minority vote. In fact, the Democrats have been great at telling Hispanics, African Americans and women that they should automatically vote for the Democratic Party. People are finally waking up and realizing that their values align more with the Republican Party than the Democrats. And that has people campaigning hard for President Donald Trump’s reelection efforts.
“I look at President Trump as the one who most closely represents my values,” 65-year-old Ray Baca, the Chairman of Border Hispanics for Trump, told CNN.
“People will hear that and say ‘Values? What values does the president have.’ So when you say ‘values,’ what do you mean?” CNN’s Nick Valencia asked.
“I mean supporting things that I support, like being against abortion, being for limited government involvement, being for border security,” Baca explained.
Valencia asked how Baca could support Trump even though he has “said racist things about the Hispanic community.” But Baca disagreed.
“We don’t think he’s said things that are racist,” the Trump supporter replied.

For all the liberal forgiveness that the journalists once stood for, they now seem to stand for judgemental pharisee-ism now
In this case, the “journalist” tries to badger the interviewee into an anti-Trump position. Since this so closely matches the format used nightly by the main stream media, this will continue to work for those who have identified media bias and against the media itself (and, therefore, will also work against the Democrats who the media so staunchly support).
- Denver Sticking To Sanctuary Policy Following Arrest Of Hit-And-Run Suspect Who Was Already Deported Six Times
The Daily Caller points out how Denver has been sticking to it sanctuary policy following the arrest of an illegal alien on hit-and-run charges.
Denver officials do not plan on fully cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) if they release an illegal alien who was deported six times before getting arrested for fleeing the scene of a deadly hit-and-run accident.
Juan Sanchez, a Mexican national living in the U.S. illegally, is accused of striking a pedestrian in the Denver area with a vehicle and immediately fleeing the scene. If Sanchez — who lives in a state that largely limits cooperation with ICE — is able to make bond, his release back into the community could pose another showdown between local officials and federal immigration authorities.
The City and County of Denver reiterated its position on transferring custody of illegal aliens when approached by the Daily Caller News Foundation about Sanchez’s case.
A Colorado woman, Annette Conquering Bear, was running an errand Dec. 17 when an oncoming SUV struck her while she tried to cross an intersection. The vehicle drove away without stopping, according to the Denver Police Department. A witness to the accident flagged down a nearby ambulance, but Conquering Bear was pronounced dead at the scene.
Law enforcement was able to locate the vehicle, a white GMC Sierra crew cab truck, and arrest its driver, Sanchez. The 39-year-old Mexican national was charged with vehicular homicide and fleeing the scene of an accident. Officials set his bond at $500,000.
ICE revealed Sanchez carries an extensive list of immigration violations that spans nearly two decades. Not only is he living in the U.S. illegally, but he was deported from the country six times: once in 2012, three times in 2008, and twice in 2002. It’s not immediately clear how Sanchez was able to make so many unauthorized re-entries into the U.S., which is a felony under federal law.
Colorado’s state government, which is under the control of the Democratic Party, has become increasingly antagonistic toward federal immigration authorities. Gov. Jared Polis, for example, signed into law in May legislation that prohibits local law enforcement from detaining a suspected illegal alien solely on the basis of an ICE request, prohibits officers from providing an illegal alien’s personal information to ICE, and requires police to read illegal aliens their Miranda rights when coordinating an ICE interview.
Given Sanchez’s repeated violations of U.S. immigration law, the DCNF asked Denver’s government if it would allow for a coordinated transfer with ICE, should Sanchez make bond. The DCNF received the following response:
“Pursuant to the Public Safety Enforcement Priorities Act, when the Denver Sheriff Department receives a request for notification from ICE the inmate is advised of their rights upon receipt and prior to release. We fax Ice notification of release when the individual enters into the release process. It is the responsibility of ICE to take the individual into custody. We do not do any secure handoff and do not participate in the transfer unless an incident would occur that would threaten the safety of the community.”

Where do you go for support — not to the Democrats
When you want equal justice under the law, where do you go? Do you go to the party who exempts illegal aliens from the law? Do you go to the party who forces Baronelle Stutzman and Jack Phillips to violate their consciences to provide services?
Do you go to the party who denied an fair process (from numbers of witnesses to ability to be represented) throughout the House impeachment process and then cried for another chance to cheat?
