Nineteen stories on how Democrats hurt citizens and help illegal aliens


Washington State to Make Illegal Immigrants Eligible for Student Loans

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What does that mean?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The New Way Forward provides illegal aliens:

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

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

  • Nothing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chicago Mayor Defends Freeing Illegal Alien Accused of Child Sexual Assault

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PuenteTweet

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Americans lose when Democrats dilute the vote with illegal votes

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

Illegal Aliens Celebrate New Jersey Giving Them Driver’s Licenses

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

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

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

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

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

(Read more at Breitbart)

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

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

Again, Americans lose to the illegal aliens.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If the step-children were American, Americans lose

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let me ask you. Who won in this contest between two illegal aliens and one 11-year-old girl

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In another case of deja vous, Americans lose at the hands of Democrats working to benefit illegal aliens

Admittedly, it surprises this conservative that the Democrats have been so brazen to support a seven-time offender rather than supporting the safety of the American community.

Americans 0, …

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NYC_CensorshipLawTweet

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Massachusetts City Allowing Illegal Aliens To Drive Without A License

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AOC wants illegals answering census

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Eight stories that illustrate how politics have gone awry


Politicians milking the system for money

  1. Bernie Sanders rails about common good but public service has made him (and his family) rich

Fox News reported in a 28 January 2020 article how (from the beginning) Bernie Sanders has used public funds to enrich himself and his family.

berniefrombehindSen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has been a loud and constant voice for socialist policies throughout his 30 years in Washington, D.C., a self-proclaimed champion of the collective good. But in researching my new book, “Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Political Elite,” I discovered that while Sanders may talk about the common good, his public service has made him and his family quite wealthy.

Perhaps no one has benefited more from Sanders’s career in politics than his wife Jane.

When Bernie was first elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont, he appointed his then-girlfriend, Jane Driscoll, to head his administration’s Youth Office. Though the position was originally unpaid, Bernie eventually put Jane on the payroll over objections of the city council. The job was never advertised so that others could apply. A local paper noted that Sanders never bothered to provide evidence as to Jane’s “qualifications” for the position.

The appointment would remain a source of controversy for Sanders. After Bernie and Jane got married in 1988, his new wife received a big pay increase. As one local newspaper reported, “Political sparks flew at Burlington’s annual city meeting Monday night as Democratic aldermen raised a series of questions concerning a hefty pay raise for Mayor Bernie Sanders’ new wife and whether she should continue to hold her job as director of the Mayor’s Youth Office.”

After Bernie won election to Congress in 1990, Jane’s business ties to her husband rose to a new level.

In Washington, Jane became one of her husband’s top aides, serving at various times as his chief of staff, press secretary and political analyst. After a decade in Congress, Jane and family went about setting up a company that operated under three different names to provide income tied to Bernie’s political career.

On Sept. 27, 2000, the family formed Sanders & Driscoll LLC, a for-profit consulting company run by Jane, her daughter Carina, and son David. The business also operated under two trade names: Leadership Strategies and Progressive Media Strategies.

Never forget that Bernie’s wife also ruined a small college that employed her and her daughter

By running that college on liberal principles, Mrs. Sanders ran the college into the ground. At the same time, that college paid both Mrs. Sanders and her daughter significant sums for their services.

Maybe we should treat this as a cautionary tale for Bernie Sander’s plan for free college (aka, worthless college).

  1. Bombshell? Joe and Hunter Biden were both paid by Burisma

Townhall commented in a 10 October 2020 article how both Joe and Hunter Biden were paid by Burisma.

JoeBidenYellingSo, the plot thickens with Joe Biden and his Ukraine ties. House Democrats have pulled the trigger on their grand plan to impeach President Trump for simply winning the 2016 election. They couldn’t get him on impeachment for “Russian collusion,” but they’re now using some inaccurate whistleblower report that alleged that President Trump tried to shakedown Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, threatening to withhold military aid unless he opened a corruption investigation into Hunter Biden. Hunter was being paid $50,000/month at his position at Burisma Group, an energy company and a sector of the economy that Biden has zero experience.

As the son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, it seems pretty clear that he was there selling access. That’s the allegation. It’s a question that hasn’t gone away, and one that has irritated Joe Biden to no end. And now we’re hearing that Joe Biden was also paid $900,000 which was part of his lobbying fee on behalf of Burisma. The former vice president has repeatedly said that he and his son never discussed overseas business, despite being pictured in a photograph golfing with two Ukrainian energy executives. They didn’t talk business. Who are you kidding? Our friends at RedState wrote about this earlier today. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s attorney, also repeated the claim on Fox News’ Sean Hannity Wednesday night (via NY Post):

Rudy Giuliani, the personal lawyer for President Trump, alleged that a Ukrainian natural gas company that employed Joe Biden’s son Hunter also paid the former vice president $900,000 in lobbying fees.

Giuliani, appearing Wednesday night on Fox News’ “The Sean Hannity Show,” cited as evidence documents released by Andriy Derkach, a member of Ukraine’s parliament.

“Biden, his son and his brother had a 30-year-long scam to make money, millions, selling his public office,” Giuliani told Hannity.

Derkach held a press conference earlier Wednesday in Kiev where he claimed he had documents showing how Burisma Holdings paid Biden the lobbying fees.

So, with information from RedState, the New York Post, Sean Hannity, and Townhall, we cannot claim we did not know

Still, this information did not appear on any over-the-fold, main-stream media outlets. During the time that this article came out, all of the over-the-fold space in major publications was taken up by various iterations of the impeachment story. I guess that they didn’t really hide this information. They just made it less visible.

This is partially how Democrats still get elected. Nobody hears about their wrong-doing.

Politicians treated differently by the press

  1. Joe Biden, grilled on Obama-era record of putting children in ‘cages,’ argues ‘we kept them safe’

Fox News reported on how Biden replied to Jorge Ramos. Oddly, this met a different response than when pictures of Obama’s cages were blamed on Trump.

Former Vice President Joe Biden was grilled Friday about the Obama administration’s record of detaining migrant children in what some lawmakers and activists have described as “cages” — with the 2020 hopeful claiming the government did it to keep them “safe.”

Biden, who served as VP for both of then-President Barack Obama’s terms, has cited his experience as a reason he should be the Democratic nominee. But with the Democratic Party shifting to the left on matters related to immigration in recent years, he has faced increased scrutiny about the administration’s policies from those claiming they were cruel.

In an interview Friday posted on Facebook, Univision journalist Jorge Ramos took issue with a claim that Biden made in September in a debate in Houston that the Obama administration never put migrant children in cages — in contrast to the Trump administration.

“What Latinos should look at is comparing this president to the president we have is outrageous,” Biden said in September. “We didn’t lock people in cages. We didn’t separate families. We didn’t do all of those things.”

“You actually did,” Ramos said Friday, showing him a picture of an 8-year-old boy in McAllen, Texas, in 2014.

“What happened was all the unaccompanied children were coming across the border,” Biden said. “We tried to get them out, we kept them safe, and get them out of the detention center… run by Homeland Security and get them into communities as quickly as we can.”

The “cages” are detention centers in which there were also chain-link enclosures. The practice was carried out by both the Obama and Trump administrations, and Biden is correct that in both instances minors were held, in part, for their own safety. An Associated Press fact check last year noted that migrants were housed in the facilities and separated by both age and sex. Those facilities were built and used by the Obama administration, and the Trump administration used the same facilities.

The Congress seems unwilling or unable to punish its own lawbreakers

  1. Ilhan Omar breaks campaign finance law by paying her ex $250K

The Daily Mail reported on the sordid details of Ilhan Omar’s affair.

IlhanOmarYellingIlhan Omar’s husband discovered the truth about her torrid affair with her chief fundraiser when he went to her Washington D.C. apartment last spring and found the lovers lounging around in pajamas, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.

Ahmed Hirsi had long suspected that Omar, 39, was cheating on him with married Tim Mynett  but the proof came when he caught the hijab-wearing congresswoman in a state that no Muslim woman would expect to be with a man who is not her husband.

Two separate sources confirmed the account to DailyMail.com, saying that Hirsi was left ‘angry and humiliated’ by the encounter.

‘He suspected she was cheating but she kept telling him he was paranoid,’ one source said.

‘He told her he wanted to move down to D.C. to be with her but she insisted he should stay in Minneapolis with the children. Eventually he surprised her down there and his worst fears were confirmed.

‘It wasn’t that he actually caught them in bed but they were clearly in a romantic situation.’

(Read more at the Daily Mail)

While the Daily Mail touches on the salacious nature of the issue, it does not address the illegality

They may have spoken reams on how Ilhan seems to have almost been caught in the act and how her lover has been seen carrying bags of beer, but they ignore the illegality of using campaign funds to pay $250K to one’s husband and another $250K to one’s lover.

  1. Ilhan Omar got hit with state campaign finance violations in July 2018

On the other hand, Breitbart reported in a 6 June 2019 article that Ilhan Omar had been brought up on state charges of campaign finance violations.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was found by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board on Thursday to have committed several campaign finance violations — and its findings have revived old questions about the legality of her marriage.

In July 2018, Minnesota State Rep. Steve Drazkowski (R-Mazeppa) filed a complaint with the board against the Neighbors for Ilhan (Omar) campaign committee, which had supported her campaign for state representative. He claimed that she had improperly spent campaign funds on legal work related to her divorce. He later filed additional complaints that she had improperly spent campaign funds on out-of-state travel.

The board’s investigation into Omar found several violations. It noted that while none of Omar’s legal expenses had been for her divorce, she had spent $1,500 on legal expenses related to her personal taxes that were not sufficiently related to the campaign. Furthermore, the board found that some of her out-of-state travel expenses were not related to her legislative duties. She has been ordered to pay reimbursements to her campaign, to file amended campaign finance statements, and to pay a civil fine of $500 to the state.

The board’s report also noted that Omar and Ahmed Hirsi, her current husband, “filed joint tax returns for 2014 and 2015.” That could add fuel to persistent allegations that Omar had been married to two men at the same time — one of whom, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, City Journal noted in 2016, was rumored (though never proven) to be her brother.

However, it seems the gears of justice turn slowly (if at all) for Democrats

Furthermore, there seems to be a stranglehold on negative information regarding Democrats. Has anyone heard complaints by leadership on either side of the aisle regarding Ilhan Omar and her misuse of campaign funds? Maybe someone has complained, but it does not seem to have reached the pages of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, or other main stream media outlets. Therefore, unless we can find it among the alternative media outlets that Google regularly shadow bans, we will never know.

  1. Rashida Tlaib Detained During Airport Protest

The Daily Caller reported in a 15 February 2020 article that Representative Tlaib was detained and released at a protest.

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib was taken into custody, then immediately released Friday during a protest at Detroit Metro Airport.

The Michigan lawmaker was part of a protest involving picketing Delta catering workers at the airport’s McNamara Terminal, according to WXYZ Detroit.

Diana Hussein of the union group Unite Here posted pictures of the protest, which reportedly blocked traffic:

However, she later corrected her earlier contention that Tlaib had been “arrested” with the group, instead stating she “did participate in solidarity in the civil disobedience.”

After her release, Tlaib took to Twitter to express her views and post a picture of herself with some of the other protesters who were detained.

“We won’t stop until we get #fairwages & #healthcare,” Tlaib tweeted. “These courageous people got arrested tonight at DTW b/c they believe workers deserve human dignity. Shame on you @Delta for leaving workers behind and letting them live in poverty.”

Regular plebes who violate this type of law at airport are jailed

However, since Hillary, we have known that “equal under the law” is nowhere near the standard.

Additionally, if you want a case study in unequal under the law, look at Roger Stone. While the law allows up to 9 years for the crime, first-time offenders with no record normally get 3 months (heard during the 5-6 am drive on 21 February 2020 on KTRH AM 740 — which sort-of matches what NBC reported on similar cases). But when the 9-year recommendation gets pulled back by Barr, four prosecutors quit, a multitude of former (Democrat) prosecutors call for Barr to resign, and the world is about to end (according to the press). So, still, nothing is really equal.

The “party of the people” disdains the people

  1. Omar claim of PTSD ‘offensive’ to US veterans, Indiana congressman says; Squad member responds

Fox news reported in a 9 January 2020 article how soldiers have found offense to Ilhan Omar’s claims of PTSD.

An Indiana congressman who served in Afghanistan as a member of the Navy Reserve spoke out on behalf of America’s military veterans Wednesday after U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., claimed she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.

U.S. Rep. Jim Banks, a Republican, said Omar’s comments were a “disgrace,” calling the remarks “offensive to our nation’s veterans who really do have PTSD after putting their life on the line to keep America safe.”

Omar had made her remarks during a news conference with other Democrats on Wednesday, at which she said she “felt ill” because of “everything that is taking place” in the Middle East — a reference to the recent U.S. tensions between the U.S. and Iran, including last week’s U.S. airstrike in Baghdad and Iran’s missile attacks early Wednesday against airbases in Iraq where U.S. service members are stationed.

“And I think every time I hear about … I hear of conversations around war, I find myself being stricken with PTSD,” she said. “And I find peace knowing that I serve with great advocates for peace and people who have shown courage against war.”

After Banks took issue with her comments, Omar posted a reply on Twitter, making reference to her youth in war-torn Somalia. Omar left her homeland with her family near the start of the Somali Civil War in 1991 and spent four years at a Kenyan refugee camp before immigrating to the U.S. in 1995.

“Hi Jim, I survived war as a child and deal with post-traumatic stress disorder—much like many who have served or lived through war,” she wrote in the tweet, which was addressed to Banks but not tagged. “It’s shameful that you as a member of Congress would erase the PTSD of survivors.”

But Banks doubled down on his comments later Wednesday evening, posting a video that showed Omar and other Democrats giggling in the background as their colleague, U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, spoke to reporters about the more than 4,000 U.S. service members killed in Iraq over the years.

“Your words and actions at today’s press conference reveal your feelings toward our soldiers serving abroad and the video speaks for itself,” Banks wrote, including a video of the news conference shared by Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga.

Omar posted another message about a half-hour later, elaborating that she had “lived in a war zone” and had “seen what conflict does to families and communities.”

This seems to reflect the sentiments of Democrats

Think back. Do you remember how Bloomberg suggested farmers to be idiots? Do you remember Biden calling Trump supporters the “dregs of society?” Do you remember Hillary infamously calling the political camp arrayed against her a “basket of deplorables?” Do you remember how the California legislature reprimanded those who voted for Trump, calling them “bigots?” Do you remember a similar reprimand directed toward Black Lives Matter when they rioted on false pretenses?

It seems that the Democrat party has selected certain groups to be our elites. All other groups need to kowtow to those groups. That, according to them, is just how it is.

  1. Omar laughs at American deaths

Townhall comments in a 9 January 2020 article on how Ilhan Omar laughed at American soldier deaths.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is seen giggling and talking to her colleagues while she is standing behind Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), who was discussing U.S. troops killed in war.

“I’m very glad to say that I was part of the 132 and also the vote for Barbara Lee’s amendment, but I think that the point of that is that that is the same war that we’re dealing with today,” Lee said. “We never solved any problems with AUMF, we left 4,000-plus, maybe even 4400 dead, and over 60,000 who came back injured in some form and the war never ended.”

Rather than stand silently behind her colleague as she spoke, Omar became a distraction when she starting laughing and turning around to talk to her Democratic colleagues.

“I recall the language in AUMF, it deals with hostilities in Iraq,” Lee continued. “It doesn’t deal with an incident or a dislike or someone in a car coming in from the airport. That is the danger of not acting and I do think with our leadership, meaning the leadership CPC, that will come together around specific answers.”

As Matt covered, Omar said during the press conference that tensions with Iran have left her feeling “a little bit” ill.

Problems with Rashida Tlaib

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tlaib interjected.

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

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

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

  1. Rashida Tlaib Releases Apologetic Statement After Booing Hillary Clinton

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

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

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

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

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

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

Between the Clinton moderates and the Warren/Sanders/Buttigieg socialists, people have come to a war of words (refer to the post Kyle Jurek to see how a Bernie supporter says cities will burn if Bernie doesn’t get the nomination).

Problems with AOC

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(Read more at Breitbart)

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

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

This woman is a bloviating moron.

  1. AOC claims Democrats are center or center-conservative

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

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

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

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

(Read more at the Washington Times)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Democrats deserve this. This is socialism in action.

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

Problems with Ilhan Omar

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

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

Masih Alinejad
Masih Alinejad

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Four signs Democrats might feel the heat


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

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

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

Video shows House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy recalling how Tlaib, on day one in Congress and in front of her son, told a group of supporters “we’re going to impeach the motherf*****.”

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

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

Senate Can Acquit Even If House Withholds Articles of Impeachment

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.

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

You’re in Cocaine Mitch’s court, now.

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

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

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

All of that would be exposed as a lie.

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

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

This all seems to be good news to me.

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

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

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

Biden clarifies remark that he will not comply with Senate subpoena

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Biden needs to sit in front of a panel

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[…]

The big picture:

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

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

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

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

Do-nothing Democrats now have to answer for their inaction

Three stories on keeping the heat on Republicans


Graham Rips Pelosi, Says She Can’t ‘Be House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader at Same Time’

Biz Pac Review pointed out Senator Graham’s response to Pelosi’s dragging her feet and provided some reasons for her continued procrastination.

Senate Judiciary Committee Holds Hearing On Data PrivacyOn Thursday, just one day after the House of Representatives voted to approve two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham warned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that any shenanigans would not be tolerated.

Washington Examiner’s Byron York suggested that it looks like Pelosi may drag her feet when it comes to delivering the articles to the Senate, or perhaps not do it at all.

It would appear that Graham is of the same mind as York, and made it clear to Pelosi that if she is thinking about doing such a thing, it would not be viewed favorably.

“If House Dems refuse to send Articles of Impeachment to the Senate for trial it would be a breathtaking violation of the Constitution, an act of political cowardice, and fundamentally unfair to President [Trump,]” he tweeted Thursday morning. “Not allowing the Senate to act on approved Articles of Impeachment becomes Constitutional extortion and creates chaos for the presidency. It also sets in motion a tremendous threat to our Constitutional system of checks and balances.”

“What is driving this crazy idea? Democrats have finally realized they have a very WEAK case which NEVER should have been brought forward to begin with,” he added. “Nancy Pelosi’s threat to refuse to transmit the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate for disposition is an incredibly dumb and dangerous idea. There is a reason one person can’t be Speaker of the House and Senate Majority Leader at the same time!”

Good that this has occurred to Senator Graham

We should keep in touch with Senator Graham to ensure that this deluded old woman does not get to act on her delusions. Sadly, since the main stream media has taken measures to hide the Speaker’s malfeasance, this woman’s megalomania could affect us for the worse.

However, as anyone who has watched just as few minutes of the main stream media can tell you (and — to be clear — I do limit my exposure to the brain-stifling tripe), the main stream media can be counteracted. We can counteract this tripe through continued education of the world in truth.

The informed, though, need to keep the Republicans accountable and the Democrats in check.

Lindsey Graham Promises Biden Investigation: ‘None Of Us Are Above Scrutiny’

The Daily Caller reports in a 15 December 2019 article that Senator Lindsey Graham has promised a Biden investigation.

joe-bidenRepublican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham promised again Sunday to begin an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden because “none of us are above scrutiny.”

The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee has previously said he wants to assess any misconduct by Joe Biden in Ukraine. Graham repeated that pledge on CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” even though he called the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential race “one of the most decent people I have ever met in my life.”

“Here’s the deal: this whole process around Ukraine wreaks with politics. They have done everything but take a wrecking ball to Donald Trump and his family. We’re not going to live in a world where only Republicans get looked at,” Graham said.

He said his personal opinions about Biden can’t influence his actions as a lawmaker. “As much as I love Joe Biden and I’m sincere when I say that … it’s hard for me to tell my constituents to ignore the fact that Hunter Biden received $50,000 a month from a gas company in Ukraine run by the most corrupt person in Ukraine, and two months after the gas company was investigated, the prosecutor got fired,” Graham told CBS News.

The senator said he hopes there’s nothing to allegations that the Bidens acted improperly in Ukraine but that he needs to find out. President Donald Trump, among others, has accused Joe Biden of having a top Ukrainian prosecutor fired because he wanted to investigate corruption at Burisma.

“I hope I can look at the transcripts of the phone calls between Biden and the Ukraine … and say there is nothing there. These are legitimate concerns about what happened in the Ukraine. I love Joe Biden, but none of us are above scrutiny. I’d like to knock all this off and get back on governing the country,” Graham said.

Yes, none of us are above investigation. That includes Democrats on all levels.

Democrats who have broken campaign finance laws (like Tlaib and Omar) need to be investigated. Democrats like Menendez need more than a censure for bribery. Democrats like Schiff (assuming he did not break laws by taking Rep. Nunes’ phone records) need to be investigated to the degree he baselessly investigated others. In fact, Democrats at all levels, especially those who continually show themselves on talk shows and seem to want to step onto the national stage, should answer for involvement in nefarious events.

Pelosi a laughing stock to the world

Tim Scott Blasts ‘Wacky’ House Impeachment Process — ‘Pelosi Is Not Taking It Seriously’

Breitbart uses a 28 December 2019 article to point out the musings of Tim Scott on San Fran Nan.

senator-scottFriday during an interview on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) lobbied Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) not to allow House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to exert influence over the U.S. Senate regarding what he described as the “wacky” impeachment process.

“The wacky House process is just a joke. And unfortunately, for one of the most important and consequential decisions the House could have made to impeach the President, you would expect an expeditious process for the Senate to start the process, but it’s not happened,” he said. “It’s not happened because Pelosi is not taking it seriously. And frankly, she is now concerned that the terrible process in the House will be invalidated by the Senate, because without any question, having watched that process, it’s hard to understand why we were even in the impeachment process at all.”

Yes, we might need to prove this is not a Banana Republic

Proving that America has not permanently slipped into a permanent might be an event, because getting back to normal will not only involve making certain that law starts being applied to Democrats — it will also involve dishing out some of the Democrat antics on the Democrats (with a similar lack of consequences that smash-the-drives Hillary, Schiff-for-brains, runway-meeting Lynch, Fast-and-Furious Holder, and others escaped). Until then, conservatives had better start their own resistence.

Another Obama failure


7 Years Ago Obama Handed Him Over to Iraqis; Now Hezbollah Terrorist With US Blood on His Hands Heads Terror Cell in Syria

Hezbollah recruits

Although Obama promised that the man who executed American troops would face justice in Iraq, Cybercast News Service reports in a 15 March 2019 article that the murderer heads a militia in Syria.

Seven years after the Obama administration controversially handed over to Iraqi custody a veteran Hezbollah terrorist accused of executing Americans – only to see him released a year later – Israel says the wanted man now heads a Syria-based terror cell near its northern border.

According to the Israeli Defense Forces Ali Musa Daqduq, a Lebanese national, heads a terror cell comprised of Syrians, based on the Syrian side of the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.

Israel vowed to prevent Iran and its Hezbollah proxy from operating against Israel from Syrian soil. In New York, its ambassador warned U.N. Security Council members that Israel “will not ignore the conversion of Syria and Lebanon to a military front against us and will act with force against the aggression from Tehran.”

Daqduq, who once served as a bodyguard to Hezbollah chief Hasan Nasrallah, was deployed to Iraq in 2005 as part of an Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Qods Force operation to work with Iraqi Shi’ite militia fighting U.S. troops.

Democrat Duplicity on Display


Democrats’ current top priority: abortion and infanticide

This is the child during the third trimester.

The New York abortion law was all about gifts to abortion extremists

The New York Post pointed out the brutality of the New York abortion law in an 18 February 2019 article published just days before the law passed.

How it is in women’s best interest to lower the not-very-high safety bar for the elective surgical procedure is anyone’s guess.

It’s also not clear how women will benefit from the elimination of a penal law that makes it a homicide to intentionally cause the death of an unborn child over 24 weeks gestation. The law now adds a felony criminal charge against the perpetrator of a violent attack on a pregnant woman that results in the death of her child. This works to protect women from domestic violence, which has been shown to increase when a woman is pregnant and the father resents the coming child.

New York law calls an unborn child killed by violent means in the third trimester a “person.” The governor’s budget bill amends as follows: “ ‘Person’ when referring to the victim of a homicide, means a human being who has been born and is alive.”

This designation of personhood will make no sense to a bereaved mother whose unborn child dies after a violent attack. It certainly didn’t to Michelle Wilkins, who was seven months pregnant when she was attacked with a butcher knife by a woman who lured Wilkins into her home by pretending to sell baby clothes. Though her baby died, her attacker wasn’t charged with murder thanks to Colorado’s laws.

Cuomo’s budget bill also eliminates legal protection for born children — those who have slipped through the abortionist’s fingers and inadvertently survived the procedure.

In second-trimester abortions, which are often performed after a fetus has reached the stage of viability, a fetus sometimes slips out intact through the birth canal before the abortionist has time to stop their heart with an injection. That baby then takes a breath, ready to fight for his or her life.

Instead, Cuomo wants to make the world a little less safe for women driven to abortion, and a lot less safe for babies, both born and unborn.

Something tells me that Democrats of the future will want to blame this on Republicans (just as they now want to push Jim Crow laws, their KKK, and Governor George Wallace away from the Democrat party).

As much as abortion (and, before it, slavery) stands central to the current Democrat ideology, why won’t they acknowledge that both of these Democrat-supporting concepts depend on designating a class of humans as non-human?

To those Democrats celebrating Roe-versus-Wade, do you see the connection between this case and Dred Scott-versus-Sandford?

Rhode Island Democrat Admits He Didn’t Read Bill Allowing Abortions Up to Birth

Life Site News reported in a 1 February 2019 article published just before the signing of Rhode Island’s abortion-up-to-birth law.

Both H 5127 and H 5125 would “eliminate any constitutional restrictions on late-term abortions” and “eliminate any constitutional restrictions on methods of abortion.”

It would also “undermine the authority of the State and the Department of Health from enacting and adopting constitutional restrictions on the performance of abortions at facilities where abortions are performed.” And, it would “require the State to pay for all abortions sought by Medicaid-eligible pregnant women and women covered by the “payer of last Resort” program.”

In addition, H 5127 would “repeal existing constitutional protection for a viable unborn child from criminal assaults on the child’s mother and H 5125 would substantially ‘water down’ the State’s parental consent statute by allowing consent to be obtained from persons who have no constitutional right to give consent (grandparents and adult siblings).”

“Neither H 5127 nor H 5125 could plausibly be regarded as merely ‘codifying’ the principles of Roe v. Wade,” states Rhode Island Right to Life.

Although Democrat Representative Joe Serodio pulled his support for Rhode Island’s third trimester abortion bill (that is, their abortion-up-to-birth bill), it passed. So his little protest had no effect when it came to the wholesale sell-out to Planned Parenthood’s abortion mill.

Vermont ‘right to abortion’ bill goes even further than New York’s

In a 22 February 2019 Washington Examiner article, we get a description of the Vermont abortion law.

Keen to make New York and the racists and rapists in Virginia look good by comparison, the Vermont House just passed a sweeping and abominable abortion law which deems terminating a pregnancy at any stage and for any reason a “fundamental right.”

Unlike the Virginia proposal and New York’s recently passed law, Vermont makes no attempt to guild their law with a facade of women’s health or medical discretion. It’s a celebration of the positive good, not the necessary evil, of murdering a viable, sentient human being for the sheer ideological pleasure of it, or perhaps just the utility.

The New York law, unconditionally legalizing abortion through 24 weeks, past the early point of fetal viability and likely fetal pain, and authorizing physicians to sign off on an abortion up until the point of labor due to the mother’s “health,” may have seemed like a fluke. But between New York’s success in passing the law, allegedly “blue” Virginia seriously entertaining its own incarnation of the law, and now Vermont on the cusp of its own unrestrained abortion-on-demand law, one thing has become abundantly clear: The abortion lobby has abandoned its pursuit of public opinion. It is now putting all efforts into fortifying state laws against the overturn of Roe v. Wade.

The Democratic Party abandoned “safe, legal, and rare” long ago, but the average American has not and shows no signs of doing so. The overwhelming majority of Americans believe that first-trimester abortions should be legal in some capacity, especially for victims of rape or cases of deformity. But the statistics are clear: Americans absolutely do not view abortion as a positive good, but rather as a necessary evil, as a last resort they would happily restrict but would hesitate to make legally impossible early in a pregnancy.

All Senate Democrats (and some Republicans) join hands to defeat a bill that would protect anyone born after a failed abortion

Senate blocks bill on medical care for children born alive after attempted abortion

In a 25 February 2019 article by the Washington Post, we find the details of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act that Democrats felt must be suppressed.

The Senate voted Monday to block consideration of a measure that would punish any doctor who fails to provide medical care to a child born alive after an attempted abortion.

All but three Democrats voted against a procedural motion on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, denying it the necessary 60 votes to proceed. The final vote count was 53 in favor and 44 opposed.

The bill would require a health-care practitioner to “exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child” as he or she would to “any other child born alive at the same gestational age.” The bill includes criminal penalties, a right of civil action for an affected mother and a mandatory reporting requirement for other health providers.

Opponents of the bill argued that it represented an unjustified attack on abortion rights, preventing doctors from exercising their best medical judgment and exposing them to possible lawsuits or prosecution.

Members of the Senate justified their vote with appeals to women’s health. However, I cannot understand how, once the child is born, the matter remains a matter of that woman’s health (unless one contends that allowing the baby to live would drive the woman insane).

If after-birth killing is permitted based on that person’s continued life will drive someone else insane and if we cannot discriminate on the basis of gender, then who will be safe from abortion?

Virginia governor under fire for comments on late-term abortion bill that almost passed

As lightly covered by one 31 January 2019 CBS News article, it seems there was sufficient pushback from Governor Northam’s comments regarding the statements he made regarding the disposal of an infant.

A new bill proposed in the Virginia legislature would loosen restrictions on abortions during the third trimester of pregnancy, and allow abortions during the second trimester to take place outside hospitals. Virginia’s governor, Democrat Ralph Northam, stirred controversy on Wednesday when he suggested how such a late-term procedure could occur.

Under current Virginia law, abortions during the third trimester require a determination by a doctor and two consulting physicians that continuing the pregnancy would likely result in the woman’s death or “substantially and irremediably” impair her mental or physical health.

The bill, proposed in the Virginia House of Delegates by Democrat Kathy Tran, would require only one doctor to make the determination that the pregnancy threatens the woman’s life or health. The proposed legislation would also eliminate the requirement that abortions during the second trimester be performed in a state-licensed hospital.

Republicans narrowly control the House of Delegates, so the bill is unlikely to pass anytime soon. A subcommittee voted to table the bill in a 5-3 vote Monday.
Proponents of the Virginia legislation argue the bill, which is similar to a law recently passed in New York, is needed to protect women’s health. But opponents argue late-term abortions are rarely medically necessary, and the Virginia bill has provoked a swift backlash from conservatives. But that response was compounded by comments Northam made on WTOP radio Wednesday when asked about the bill.

“When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physicians, more than one physician, by the way,” Northam said. “And it’s done in cases where there amy be severe deformities, there may be a fetus that’s non-viable. So in this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother. So I think this was really blown out of proportion.”

I fully believe that the revelations of Northam’s blackface indiscretions would never come to light had he never mentioned the tenets of this Virginia bill. To say it another way, the revelation of Northam having worn blackface was nothing but a smoke screen to deflect attention from the atrocious abortion bill.

Former Democrat top priority: doing it “for the children”

Surrounding herself with children, Nancy Pelosi tried to set a theme

In a 4 January 2007 New York Times article, Nancy’s focus on children became evident.

Most of the time, Congress looks as if it’s run by children.

But today, it actually was. Republicans brought at least 41 children and Democrats brought more than 75 little ones — children and grandchildren of the members — into the House chamber to witness Nancy Pelosi’s ascent to speaker. Mrs. Pelosi herself was buried under five grandchildren for most of the event, with Representative Rahm Emanuel’s three kids in seats nearby.

“For my grandchildren and all the children around the world,” Representative Carolyn McCarthy of New York said as she cast her vote for Mrs. Pelosi.

A few moments later, when Representative Jim McGovern of Massachusetts shouted out the new speaker’s name for his vote, his small children echoed: “Pelosi!”

Although this can be seen as little more a trope used in debates to sway the audience when other facts did not support your argument, at least it gave a nod to children and their importance to our future.

It looks like today’s Democrat has figured out that a child will not vote for the next 15 or so years; therefore, why not just kill the kid and let Planned Parenthood sell the parts?

Democrats decried the separation of illegal alien adults from the children with them

Our National Public Radio reports the Democrat party line in a 19 June 2018 article when they write about the separation of criminal aliens from the children who accompanied them.

Since early May, 2,342 children have been separated from their parents after crossing the Southern U.S. border, according to the Department of Homeland Security, as part of a new immigration strategy by the Trump administration that has prompted widespread outcry.

On Wednesday, President Trump signed an executive order reversing his policy of separating families — and replacing it with a policy of detaining entire families together, including children, but ignoring legal time limits on the detention of minors.

Therefore, Democrats care if someone who criminally entered the nation is separated from the children who are with them; however, they do not care if a doctor kills a baby who has been born during a botched abortion.

Be certain. There are many people who have survived abortions.

Obama administration separation of families

Just to be fair, USA Today documented the Obama administration separation of families in a 23 June 2018 article.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at a June 18 press briefing: “The Obama administration, the Bush administration all separated families. … They did — their rate was less than ours, but they absolutely did do this. This is not new.”

Nielsen went on to explain that there is indeed something new, as we wrote in another article on this topic. Under a “zero tolerance policy” on illegal immigration announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in early April, the administration is now referring all illegal border crossings for criminal prosecution. By doing that, parents have been separated from their children, because children can’t be held in detention facilities for adults.

Current Democrat secondary priorities: racism, bigotry, & anti-Semitism

Rep. Tlaib calls a Black woman a “prop” and then accuses a senator with a bi-racial family of racism

Fox News documents through a 27 February 2019 article that exposes Tlaib’s racism.

Accusations of racism swirled Wednesday during Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony, after a Democratic House freshman, Rashida Tlaib, appeared to accuse fellow lawmaker Mark Meadows of being racist.

Tlaib, D- Mich., was addressing the chamber when she turned her remarks to a Trump employee who’d been invited to the hearing by Meadows, R-N.C.

“Just because someone has a person of color, a black person working for them, does not mean they aren’t racist and it is insensitive that some would even say, the fact that someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee, is alone racist in itself.”

An emotional Meadows fired back, saying Lynne Patton, a Trump aide and official at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, wanted to be present in support of President Trump. He asked that Tlaib’s remarks be stricken from the record.

“My nieces and nephews are people of color. Not many people know that. You know that, Mr. Chairman. And to indicate that I asked someone who is a personal friend of the Trump family, who has worked for him, who knows this particular individual (motioning to Cohen), that she’s coming in to be a prop — it’s racist to suggest that I asked her to come in here for that reason.”

Take in mind that Ms. Tlaib’s race and religion had everything to do with her election. Nobody should be surprised that Tlaib will view everything through a racial and religious prism and will not bother to do any homework (like researching the background of her “opponent” to find that he has people of color in his family. But those are just unimportant details to her when she is on the giving end of racial discrimination.

Rep. Omar makes multiple anti-Semitic remarks

USA Today reported in a 3 March 2019 article on some of the more recent anti-Semitic comments offered by the representative.

Freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is once again facing criticism and charges of anti-Semitism from her own party’s leadership for comments about the political influence of Israel.

On Friday, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., called on Omar to apologize for “a vile, anti-Semitic slur” she made at a town hall event in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday where she suggested Israel demands “allegiance” from American lawmakers.

“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” the congresswoman from Minnesota said in a video of the event shared on Facebook.

She was joined at the event by Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.; Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash.; and Mark Pocan, D-Wis.

Omar and Tlaib are the first Muslim women elected to Congress. Omar said she was concerned that because of their religion, “a lot of our Jewish colleagues, a lot of our constituents, a lot of our allies, (think) that everything we say about Israel (is) anti-Semitic because we are Muslim.”

She said the charge of anti-Semitism is “designed to end the debate” about Israel’s treatment of Palestinians.

Omar said she was “sensitive to” and “pained by” accusations of intolerance. But she added that “it’s almost as if every single time we say something, regardless of what it is we say,” she and Tlaib are “labeled.” And “that ends the discussion because we end up defending that and nobody ever gets to have the proper debate of what is happening with Palestine.”

Critics said Omar’s remarks played into old doubts about the loyalty of American Jews.

“The charge of dual loyalty not only raises the ominous specter of classic anti-Semitism, but it is also deeply insulting to the millions upon millions of patriotic Americans, Jewish and non-Jewish, who stand by our democratic ally, Israel,” the American Israel Public Affairs Committee said in a statement.

Engel said it was “unacceptable and deeply offensive to question the loyalty of fellow American citizens because of their political views, including support for the Israel-U.S. relationship,” in a statement on Friday. “Worse, Representative Omar’s comments leveled that charge by invoking a vile anti-Semitic slur.

“This episode is especially disappointing following so closely on another instance of Ms. Omar seeming to invoke an anti-Semitic stereotype,” Engel said, referring to her controversial statement last month that money from AIPAC was used to buy support for Israel.

“Her comments were outrageous and deeply hurtful, and I ask that she retract them, apologize and commit to making her case on policy issues without resorting to attacks that have no place in the Foreign Affairs Committee or the House of Representatives,” he said.

Because Ms. Omar came from a district dominated by Somali immigrants, her view of Islam (and, therefore, of how Jews and Christians should be treated) probably falls in the mainstream of that district.

AOC re-enters the religious bigotry fray by lying about Jerry Falwell, Jr and Liberty University

As reported in one TownHall article, it seems that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes felt that Falwell’s attendance at the CPAC was reason enough to lie about him by editing Dr. Falwell’s comments.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest falsehood was exposed on Monday when she tweeted several lies regarding previous statements given by Liberty University President Jerry Falwell.

AOC, as she is nicknamed, tweeted only part of a statement given in the past by President Falwell. AOC tweeted Falwell as saying, “I always thought that if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they (unintelligible)…” What AOC left out was the part at the end of his sentence where Falwell said “before they walk in and kill us.” Falwell made the statement in the wake of the ISIS inspired 2015 terrorist attack in San Bernardino, CA and was urging his students to train to learn to how properly carry weapons so that Liberty students would not be a future target after yet another Radical Islamic terrorist attack inside the United States. As is said, half the truth is often a great lie but Cortez was not done.

AOC also said Falwell made those comments at CPAC this past weekend but, as noted above, Falwell made those comments at Liberty University and in the context of adult age students exercising their God-given Second Amendment rights.

What AOC could have reported on was that Liberty University served as satellite location for this year’s CPAC and it likely will not be the last. Speakers included Donald Trump, Jr., Charlie Kirk, Gary Sinise, Sean Spicer and many others. Thousands of students showed up during their time away from classes, and military veterans were given a place of recognition and honor.

There are no glory days for Democrats regarding bigotry — not then and not now

Prior to the Civil War, Democrats were the pro-slavery party that opposed Lincoln’s Republican Party. From the 1900’s through the 1960’s, Democrats were the party of Jim Crow laws in the South. It was Democrat Governor George Wallace that opposed the integration of schools in Alabama. Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia who not only served in the senate, but was also a grand dragon in the KKK.

Now, the Democrats will have to own anti-Semites like Ms. Omar, Ms. Tlaib, and Ms. Ocasio-Cortez.

Democrats return to their racist roots by refusing to sanction Rep Omar over multiple anti-Semitic comments

According to a Washington Post article, Democrats have refused to sanction Ms. Omar for her repeated anti-Semitic comments.

House Democrats argued acrimoniously Wednesday over whether to rebuke Rep. Ilhan Omar for alleged anti-Semitic remarks, forcing party leaders to confront a growing rift over race and religion that threatened to hamstring the newfound majority.

Omar (D-Minn.) suggested last week that Israel’s supporters have an “allegiance to a foreign country,” remarks that angered some Democrats who saw them as hateful tropes and pushed to condemn the freshman lawmaker. Her defenders argued that leadership was applying a double standard in singling out one of the two Muslim women in Congress.

In a closed-door Democratic caucus meeting Wednesday morning, lawmakers debated whether to vote on an anti-hate measure in response to Omar. The session quickly became rancorous, reflecting splinters over wider issues such as America’s long-standing support for Israel, the appropriate response to racial and religious grievances, and a new generation’s reliance on social media. Plans for a quick vote appeared to fade amid the uproar.

Democratic leaders openly fretted that the divisions would overshadow their legislative agenda, especially a planned Friday vote on a major campaign and ethics reform bill, just days after they launched a sweeping investigation focused on the president. Meanwhile, President Trump and Republicans sought to capitalize politically, eager to position their party as the more reliable ally of Israel — and the more appealing choice for Jewish voters who have long trended Democratic — ahead of the 2020 election.
