Irate Woman All Smiles Attacking Man in MAGA Hat. ICE Learns She’s Illegal and Makes Arrest


Reported By Benjamin Arie | Published February 26, 2019 at 5:02pm  | Modified February 26, 2019 at 5:04pm

Illegal Alien Showing Off The Hat She Assaulted

Assaulting someone over their hat is a crime, but bragging and seeking media attention for doing it while you’re in the country illegally seems particularly unwise.

Rosiane Santos was recently arrested for after assaulting a Trump supporter who was wearing a “MAGA” hat inside a Mexican restaurant in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Even employees of the restaurant confirmed that Bryton Turner had simply ordered food before he was accosted by Santos.

“Santos started yelling at him because of his hat, which bears the theme that President Donald Trump campaigned on,” Boston news station WFXT explained. “The woman is seen walking behind him and hitting his hat off his head.”

Even after being arrested, Santos claimed that simply being an immigrant allowed her to attack Turner.

“(B)eing discriminated for so many times in my life, I just had to stand up for myself,” she said in a phone interview with WFXT. “He’s not a victim. I am the victim. I have been bullied, OK?”

Going after someone because of a campaign hat and then drawing attention to herself on the news wasn’t a very wise choice. It turns out that Santos is from Brazil, and now the U.S. government says she was living in the United States illegally.

“The woman who was charged with confronting a man wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat inside a Falmouth Mexican restaurant is now in ICE custody,” WBZ-TV reported on Tuesday.

Her attention-seeking stunt definitely worked, but it will likely get her a one-way ticket out of the country.

“Deportation officers with ICE’s Fugitive Operations Team arrested Rosiane Santos, an unlawfully present citizen of Brazil, today near Falmouth, Massachusetts,” ICE spokesman John Mohan told the local CBS News affiliate.

“Santos is currently facing local charges for assault and other offenses. She is presently in ICE custody and has been entered into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts.”

For his part, Turner told WBZ-TV that the entire incident could have been avoided if the woman had simply respected other people’s right to wear hats or hold opinions she might not agree with.

“It’s just a hat at the end of the day,” he said. “I don’t really understand why people can’t just express themselves anymore, everybody has to get mad.”

The real irony of this story is that Santos just proved Trump and his supporters’ point. The left insists that “undocumented immigrants” are all good people who only want to join the melting pot and have better lives.

Conservatives, of course, have pointed out that there’s a lot more going on. While many immigrants don’t cause problems once they cross the border, a solid number seem to have a mentality of entitlement, making demands while stirring up trouble.

That’s exactly what this woman did on camera while continuing to play the victim. She and others like her wail about “MAGA” hats and angry Trump supporters, but it was her own unhinged behavior and illegal actions that got her arrested.

Ann Coulter Letter: Hush Little Porn Star, Don’t Say a Word


Commentary by Ann Coulter | Posted: Feb 27, 2019 4:05 PM

Hush Little Porn Star, Don't Say a Word

If that’s the best he’s got, Trump should demand we hold the election this coming Tuesday.

Cohen was referring to Trump’s 2017 reimbursement of the $130,000 hush money he paid to porn star Stormy Daniels to stay quiet about her claim that she’d had sex with Trump, aka Cohen’s client — meaning much of Cohen’s testimony is barred by attorney-client privilege. But who cares about this sacred legal privilege? We’re trying to get Trump!

Neither the media nor Cohen seem to realize that Cohen wasn’t doing anything illegal when he paid the “hush money.” (Just because Trump thinks every Jewish lawyer is Roy Cohn doesn’t mean you have to, too, New York Times.)

Words like “hush money” and “porn star” make the payments sound unsavory — especially to The New York Times, known during the Clinton era as Defender of Inappropriate Presidential Sex — but there’s nothing criminal about paying money to suppress embarrassing information, even in the middle of a political campaign.

If it wasn’t illegal for Cohen to pay the hush money, it’s certainly not illegal for Trump to reimburse him for it. Cohen was, after all, Trump’s lawyer. He got reimbursed for a lot of things.

But we have to have days of hearings in hopes of establishing that Trump violated the campaign finance reporting requirements with these payments, in which case, OH MY GOSH, HE’D HAVE TO PAY A FINE.

I’d be more impressed if they got Trump on a jaywalking charge.

President Obama had to pay $375,000 in fines for actual campaign violations during his 2008 run, and I don’t think we needed 16 prosecutors, half of Congress and the entire media on the case.

The theory of Trump’s alleged campaign finance violation is that if you’re running for office, all normal life expenses suddenly become campaign-related. According to these neurotics, ANY money Trump or his companies spent during the campaign is a potential campaign finance expenditure.

Paying your gardeners is a campaign expense — because who would vote for a man who can’t even keep the hedges tidy at Mar-a-Lago? If Trump had gone to the hospital for an appendectomy — well, he got his appendix cut out because he feared that if he died of appendicitis, he wouldn’t get the nomination.

1) Trump, with his fine legal mind, knew he was violating the law; and

2) He authorized the payments only because he was running for office.

So prosecutors have a fantastic case, provided they can get Trump to admit on the stand, Oh no, I wasn’t worried that these allegations would hurt my brand at all. I didn’t care about what my grandkids or Melania would think. I had Cohen pay off a porn star for the sole purpose of misleading the public into voting for me on the basis of my character.

Such an argument would be absurd with anyone, but we’re talking about Donald Trump. He didn’t exactly hold himself out to the voting public as a moral paragon.

As voters were well aware, Trump’s been married three times, has appeared in Playboy videos, and was a fixture on the Howard Stern show for years, discussing breast sizes and ranking women’s looks. In the very first GOP debate, Fox News reminded viewers that Trump had called women “fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.”

The reason the “Access Hollywood” tape failed so spectacularly was that Trump had never appealed to Americans based on his character.

To take a contrary example at random, off the top of my head: Sen. John Edwards’ presidential campaign was entirely premised on his boasting about how much he loved the poor and loved his cancer-stricken wife — and also loved his son, who died in a car accident and he’s never told anyone this story before …

About a year before Edwards was caught by a real newspaper, The National Enquirer, visiting his love child and mistress in the Beverly Hilton, Edwards droned on and on about the importance of marital fidelity to NBC’s Katie Couric. It was, he said, “fundamental to how you judge people and human character — whether you keep your word, whether you keep what is your ultimate word, which is that you love your spouse, and you’ll stay with them.”

In order to preserve this utterly false image, Edwards arranged for his campaign donors to fork over nearly a million dollars to keep his baby mama happy and quiet. These were donors — not Edwards’ personal lawyer — who ponied up because they wanted him in the White House, and the money was being spent to protect the candidate’s completely bogus public image.

But when federal prosecutors brought a case against Edwards for failing to report these rather more obvious campaign expenditures, the government was nearly laughed out of court. The media ridiculed the entire prosecution and the jury acquitted, presumably on the grounds that, however much Edwards didn’t want voters to know about the affair, he also didn’t want his wife to know.

Trump won the presidency not because he touted himself as a man of character, but because he said he was someone who could get things done. Like build the wall. If you’re going to impeach him, impeach him for that.

The Pope And Islam’s Most Important Imam Just Signed A Covenant That Pushes Us Much Closer To A One World Religion


A historic interfaith covenant was signed in the Middle East on Monday, and the mainstream media in the United States has been almost entirely silent about it.  Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb is considered to be the most important imam in Sunni Islam, and he arrived at the signing ceremony in Abu Dhabi with Pope Francis “hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood”.  But this wasn’t just a ceremony for Catholics and Muslims.  According to a British news source, the signing of this covenant was done “in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths”…

The pope and the grand imam of al-Azhar have signed a historic declaration of fraternity, calling for peace between nations, religions and races, in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths.

Pope Francis, the leader of the world’s Catholics, and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning, arrived at the ceremony in Abu Dhabi hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood.

In other words, there was a concerted effort to make sure that all of the religions of the world were represented at this gathering.

According to the official Vatican website, a tremendous amount of preparation went in to the drafting of this document, and it encourages believers from all religions “to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray” with one another…

The document, signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb, was prepared “with much reflection and prayer”, the Pope said. The one great danger at this moment, he continued, is “destruction, war, hatred between us.” “If we believers are not able to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray, our faith will be defeated”, he said. The Pope explained that the document “is born of faith in God who is the Father of all and the Father of peace; it condemns all destruction, all terrorism, from the first terrorism in history, that of Cain.”

There is a lot of language about peace in this document, but it goes way beyond just advocating for peace.

Over and over again, the word “God” is used to simultaneously identify Allah and the God of Christianity.  Here is just one example…

We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.

On top of that, the document also boldly declares that “the diversity of religions” that we see in the world was “willed by God”…

Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;

In essence, this is saying that it is the will of God that there are hundreds of different religions in the world and that they are all acceptable in His sight.

We know that the elite want a one world religion, but to see the most important clerics from both Catholicism and Islam make such a dramatic public push for it is absolutely stunning.

You can find the full text of the covenant that they signed on the official Vatican website.  I have also reproduced the entire document below…

INTRODUCTION

Faith leads a believer to see in the other a brother or sister to be supported and loved. Through faith in God, who has created the universe, creatures and all human beings (equal on account of his mercy), believers are called to express this human fraternity by safeguarding creation and the entire universe and supporting all persons, especially the poorest and those most in need.

This transcendental value served as the starting point for several meetings characterized by a friendly and fraternal atmosphere where we shared the joys, sorrows and problems of our contemporary world. We did this by considering scientific and technical progress, therapeutic achievements, the digital era, the mass media and communications. We reflected also on the level of poverty, conflict and suffering of so many brothers and sisters in different parts of the world as a consequence of the arms race, social injustice, corruption, inequality, moral decline, terrorism, discrimination, extremism and many other causes.

From our fraternal and open discussions, and from the meeting that expressed profound hope in a bright future for all human beings, the idea of this Document on Human Fraternity was conceived. It is a text that has been given honest and serious thought so as to be a joint declaration of good and heartfelt aspirations. It is a document that invites all persons who have faith in God and faith in human fraternity to unite and work together so that it may serve as a guide for future generations to advance a culture of mutual respect in the awareness of the great divine grace that makes all human beings brothers and sisters.

 

DOCUMENT

In the name of God who has created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity, and who has called them to live together as brothers and sisters, to fill the earth and make known the values of goodness, love and peace;

In the name of innocent human life that God has forbidden to kill, affirming that whoever kills a person is like one who kills the whole of humanity, and that whoever saves a person is like one who saves the whole of humanity;

In the name of the poor, the destitute, the marginalized and those most in need whom God has commanded us to help as a duty required of all persons, especially the wealthy and of means;

In the name of orphans, widows, refugees and those exiled from their homes and their countries; in the name of all victims of wars, persecution and injustice; in the name of the weak, those who live in fear, prisoners of war and those tortured in any part of the world, without distinction;

In the name of peoples who have lost their security, peace, and the possibility of living together, becoming victims of destruction, calamity and war;

In the name of human fraternity that embraces all human beings, unites them and renders them equal;

In the name of this fraternity torn apart by policies of extremism and division, by systems of unrestrained profit or by hateful ideological tendencies that manipulate the actions and the future of men and women;

In the name of freedom, that God has given to all human beings creating them free and distinguishing them by this gift;

In the name of justice and mercy, the foundations of prosperity and the cornerstone of faith;

In the name of all persons of good will present in every part of the world;

In the name of God and of everything stated thus far; Al-Azhar al-Sharif and the Muslims of the East and West, together with the Catholic Church and the Catholics of the East and West, declare the adoption of a culture of dialogue as the path; mutual cooperation as the code of conduct; reciprocal understanding as the method and standard.

We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.

We call upon intellectuals, philosophers, religious figures, artists, media professionals and men and women of culture in every part of the world, to rediscover the values of peace, justice, goodness, beauty, human fraternity and coexistence in order to confirm the importance of these values as anchors of salvation for all, and to promote them everywhere.

This Declaration, setting out from a profound consideration of our contemporary reality, valuing its successes and in solidarity with its suffering, disasters and calamities, believes firmly that among the most important causes of the crises of the modern world are a desensitized human conscience, a distancing from religious values and a prevailing individualism accompanied by materialistic philosophies that deify the human person and introduce worldly and material values in place of supreme and transcendental principles.

While recognizing the positive steps taken by our modern civilization in the fields of science, technology, medicine, industry and welfare, especially in developed countries, we wish to emphasize that, associated with such historic advancements, great and valued as they are, there exists both a moral deterioration that influences international action and a weakening of spiritual values and responsibility. All this contributes to a general feeling of frustration, isolation and desperation leading many to fall either into a vortex of atheistic, agnostic or religious extremism, or into blind and fanatic extremism, which ultimately encourage forms of dependency and individual or collective self-destruction.

History shows that religious extremism, national extremism and also intolerance have produced in the world, be it in the East or West, what might be referred to as signs of a “third world war being fought piecemeal”. In several parts of the world and in many tragic circumstances these signs have begun to be painfully apparent, as in those situations where the precise number of victims, widows and orphans is unknown. We see, in addition, other regions preparing to become theatres of new conflicts, with outbreaks of tension and a build-up of arms and ammunition, and all this in a global context overshadowed by uncertainty, disillusionment, fear of the future, and controlled by narrow-minded economic interests.

We likewise affirm that major political crises, situations of injustice and lack of equitable distribution of natural resources – which only a rich minority benefit from, to the detriment of the majority of the peoples of the earth – have generated, and continue to generate, vast numbers of poor, infirm and deceased persons. This leads to catastrophic crises that various countries have fallen victim to despite their natural resources and the resourcefulness of young people which characterize these nations. In the face of such crises that result in the deaths of millions of children – wasted away from poverty and hunger – there is an unacceptable silence on the international level.

It is clear in this context how the family as the fundamental nucleus of society and humanity is essential in bringing children into the world, raising them, educating them, and providing them with solid moral formation and domestic security. To attack the institution of the family, to regard it with contempt or to doubt its important role, is one of the most threatening evils of our era.

We affirm also the importance of awakening religious awareness and the need to revive this awareness in the hearts of new generations through sound education and an adherence to moral values and upright religious teachings. In this way we can confront tendencies that are individualistic, selfish, conflicting, and also address radicalism and blind extremism in all its forms and expressions.

The first and most important aim of religions is to believe in God, to honour Him and to invite all men and women to believe that this universe depends on a God who governs it. He is the Creator who has formed us with His divine wisdom and has granted us the gift of life to protect it. It is a gift that no one has the right to take away, threaten or manipulate to suit oneself. Indeed, everyone must safeguard this gift of life from its beginning up to its natural end. We therefore condemn all those practices that are a threat to life such as genocide, acts of terrorism, forced displacement, human trafficking, abortion and euthanasia. We likewise condemn the policies that promote these practices.

Moreover, we resolutely declare that religions must never incite war, hateful attitudes, hostility and extremism, nor must they incite violence or the shedding of blood. These tragic realities are the consequence of a deviation from religious teachings. They result from a political manipulation of religions and from interpretations made by religious groups who, in the course of history, have taken advantage of the power of religious sentiment in the hearts of men and women in order to make them act in a way that has nothing to do with the truth of religion. This is done for the purpose of achieving objectives that are political, economic, worldly and short-sighted. We thus call upon all concerned to stop using religions to incite hatred, violence, extremism and blind fanaticism, and to refrain from using the name of God to justify acts of murder, exile, terrorism and oppression. We ask this on the basis of our common belief in God who did not create men and women to be killed or to fight one another, nor to be tortured or humiliated in their lives and circumstances. God, the Almighty, has no need to be defended by anyone and does not want His name to be used to terrorize people.

This Document, in accordance with previous International Documents that have emphasized the importance of the role of religions in the construction of world peace, upholds the following:

– The firm conviction that authentic teachings of religions invite us to remain rooted in the values of peace; to defend the values of mutual understanding, human fraternity and harmonious coexistence; to re-establish wisdom, justice and love; and to reawaken religious awareness among young people so that future generations may be protected from the realm of materialistic thinking and from dangerous policies of unbridled greed and indifference that are based on the law of force and not on the force of law;

– Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;

– Justice based on mercy is the path to follow in order to achieve a dignified life to which every human being has a right;

– Dialogue, understanding and the widespread promotion of a culture of tolerance, acceptance of others and of living together peacefully would contribute significantly to reducing many economic, social, political and environmental problems that weigh so heavily on a large part of humanity;

– Dialogue among believers means coming together in the vast space of spiritual, human and shared social values and, from here, transmitting the highest moral virtues that religions aim for. It also means avoiding unproductive discussions;

– The protection of places of worship – synagogues, churches and mosques – is a duty guaranteed by religions, human values, laws and international agreements. Every attempt to attack places of worship or threaten them by violent assaults, bombings or destruction, is a deviation from the teachings of religions as well as a clear violation of international law;

– Terrorism is deplorable and threatens the security of people, be they in the East or the West, the North or the South, and disseminates panic, terror and pessimism, but this is not due to religion, even when terrorists instrumentalize it. It is due, rather, to an accumulation of incorrect interpretations of religious texts and to policies linked to hunger, poverty, injustice, oppression and pride. This is why it is so necessary to stop supporting terrorist movements fuelled by financing, the provision of weapons and strategy, and by attempts to justify these movements even using the media. All these must be regarded as international crimes that threaten security and world peace. Such terrorism must be condemned in all its forms and expressions;

– The concept of citizenship is based on the equality of rights and duties, under which all enjoy justice. It is therefore crucial to establish in our societies the concept of full citizenship and reject the discriminatory use of the term minorities which engenders feelings of isolation and inferiority. Its misuse paves the way for hostility and discord; it undoes any successes and takes away the religious and civil rights of some citizens who are thus discriminated against;

– Good relations between East and West are indisputably necessary for both. They must not be neglected, so that each can be enriched by the other’s culture through fruitful exchange and dialogue. The West can discover in the East remedies for those spiritual and religious maladies that are caused by a prevailing materialism. And the East can find in the West many elements that can help free it from weakness, division, conflict and scientific, technical and cultural decline. It is important to pay attention to religious, cultural and historical differences that are a vital component in shaping the character, culture and civilization of the East. It is likewise important to reinforce the bond of fundamental human rights in order to help ensure a dignified life for all the men and women of East and West, avoiding the politics of double standards;

– It is an essential requirement to recognize the right of women to education and employment, and to recognize their freedom to exercise their own political rights. Moreover, efforts must be made to free women from historical and social conditioning that runs contrary to the principles of their faith and dignity. It is also necessary to protect women from sexual exploitation and from being treated as merchandise or objects of pleasure or financial gain. Accordingly, an end must be brought to all those inhuman and vulgar practices that denigrate the dignity of women. Efforts must be made to modify those laws that prevent women from fully enjoying their rights;

– The protection of the fundamental rights of children to grow up in a family environment, to receive nutrition, education and support, are duties of the family and society. Such duties must be guaranteed and protected so that they are not overlooked or denied to any child in any part of the world. All those practices that violate the dignity and rights of children must be denounced. It is equally important to be vigilant against the dangers that they are exposed to, particularly in the digital world, and to consider as a crime the trafficking of their innocence and all violations of their youth;

– The protection of the rights of the elderly, the weak, the disabled, and the oppressed is a religious and social obligation that must be guaranteed and defended through strict legislation and the implementation of the relevant international agreements.

To this end, by mutual cooperation, the Catholic Church and Al-Azhar announce and pledge to convey this Document to authorities, influential leaders, persons of religion all over the world, appropriate regional and international organizations, organizations within civil society, religious institutions and leading thinkers. They further pledge to make known the principles contained in this Declaration at all regional and international levels, while requesting that these principles be translated into policies, decisions, legislative texts, courses of study and materials to be circulated.

Al-Azhar and the Catholic Church ask that this Document become the object of research and reflection in all schools, universities and institutes of formation, thus helping to educate new generations to bring goodness and peace to others, and to be defenders everywhere of the rights of the oppressed and of the least of our brothers and sisters.

In conclusion, our aspiration is that:

this Declaration may constitute an invitation to reconciliation and fraternity among all believers, indeed among believers and non-believers, and among all people of good will;

  • this Declaration may be an appeal to every upright conscience that rejects deplorable violence and blind extremism; an appeal to those who cherish the values of tolerance and fraternity that are promoted and encouraged by religions;
  • this Declaration may be a witness to the greatness of faith in God that unites divided hearts and elevates the human soul;
  • this Declaration may be a sign of the closeness between East and West, between North and South, and between all who believe that God has created us to understand one another, cooperate with one another and live as brothers and sisters who love one another.

This is what we hope and seek to achieve with the aim of finding a universal peace that all can enjoy in this life.

Watch: Undercover Video of Abortion Patient Will Turn Your Stomach


Reported By Ben Marquis | Published February 25, 2019 at 4:36pm

There has been a lot of discussion in recent months about the legislative push from Democrats in a number of states to expand the “right” of abortion up until the moment prior to birth — even as the left routinely denies that late-term abortions are a thing — so a conservative pundit used hidden cameras to try and find out more about how a woman would go about getting a late-term abortion.

Steven Crowder, who is typically known for his hilarious takedowns of leftist absurdity, abandoned any pretense at humor for this grave topic. Instead, he paired up with two women who would wear hidden cameras to obtain undercover footage inside an abortion clinic in Boulder, Colorado, where late-term abortions are legal.

Those two women were Muriel, who was 25 weeks pregnant with a baby named “Rose,” and her friend Kat, who would accompany her as “moral support” as she pretended to be in search of an abortion procedure at the clinic.

While the goal may initially have been to catch damning evidence on video about the clinic and late-term abortions, the two women were instead relegated to the clinic’s waiting room for quite some time, where they engaged in a shocking and heartbreaking discussion with another woman identified only as “Patient X,” who was waiting to receive a late-term abortion.

Patient X revealed that she was somewhere between 28 and 32 weeks — 8 months — into her pregnancy. At 32 weeks, an unborn baby is all but fully-formed and completely viable outside the womb, presuming there are no serious life-threatening deformities or serious health issues. Indeed, Patient X further revealed a short time later that there was absolutely nothing wrong with her unborn baby, as had been revealed by prior checkups, specific tests, sonograms and ultrasounds.

In the meantime, the patient quietly explained to the two women what she had learned was involved in the late-term abortion procedure, which began with an injection into the womb of a lethal cocktail of chemicals that would stop the unborn baby’s heartbeat within ten minutes to a few hours.

She then noted that the recipient of the procedure had to walk around for the next few days still carrying the dead baby, and worried about the possibility of contracting sepsis, or an infection of the bloodstream, from the dead infant still being carried in the womb, not to mention other risks the procedure posed, such as a damaged or perforated uterus.

Patient X mentioned that she had attempted to ask the doctor about her concerns, but he had “Kind of shoved it off like it was no big deal.” She further revealed that this was her third attempt at obtaining an abortion, as two previous efforts — first at 10 weeks, again at 18 weeks — had been unsuccessful for one reason or another.

Incredibly, a nurse poked her head into the waiting room at one point to suspiciously ask the two women if “Patient X” had said “anything odd” to them, and noted how “nervous” the clinic got when random patients chatted among themselves, because, “There’s a whole anti-choice movement of people that get into the waiting rooms and then sit in the waiting rooms and talk people out of their (abortions).”

It is worth pointing out that Patient X, who admitted to having already birthed two children, was far from gung-ho about getting the abortion, as she was obviously struggling with the choice to terminate her pregnancy, and she thought it was “not right” to end a pregnancy so late and suggested it all boiled down to money.

She further revealed that her husband largely disagreed with her choice to get an abortion and worried how it would impact their relationship going forward. She also expressed her own indecision on the irrevocable choice she was on the verge of making, as it was counter to everything she had believed and learned in her Catholic upbringing.

The video later showed that, after the two women had left the clinic, they prayed on behalf of Patient X, that God would intervene and prevent her from obtaining the abortion that day in order to save the innocent unborn baby’s life.

Unfortunately, it is unknown whether Patient X followed through on getting that abortion or not, and Crowder pointed out in his video that, even if late-term abortions were as rare as abortion advocates claim it to be — purportedly only about 1 percent of all abortions — there would still be more than 10,000 such late-term abortions every year, a monstrous and horrifying figure.

Sadly, far too many elected Democrats — including many of the prominent candidates running for president — see nothing wrong with murdering innocent babies, as they are all-in with a party and movement that has rejected God and is increasingly anti-life and anti-women … pretty much the opposite of what they claim with a smile when speaking to average Americans who abhor the practice of late-term abortions.

Congressman Backs Trump’s Emergency Declaration After Border Deployment: ‘What I Saw Was Really Disturbing’

Brennan first asked Kinzinger if what he saw constituted a national emergency.

“Yeah, I think it does,” the lawmaker responded. “You know, I went down there kind of undecided. You know I put on my lieutenant colonel hat, was apolitical but obviously I’m looking at this, getting the information I can.”

And I think if this was just an issue of immigration it wouldn’t constitute a national emergency but what I saw was really disturbing.”

The Air Force pilot recounted finding a woman abandoned in the desert by her border trafficking coyotes, while on another mission they assisted in apprehending a person carrying 70 pounds of methamphetamines.

Kinzinger, who was flying his missions out of Tucson, said the situation in Arizona is completely different than what he saw during a prior border deployment in Texas during the Obama administration. During this deployment, Border Patrol informed him that they find at least 200 dead people a year in the arid, rough terrain.

Brennan pushed Kinzinger on whether there is truly a crisis, saying according to Border Patrol, apprehensions are near a 50-year low. Kinzinger responded that while the total apprehended may be down, his experience was large numbers were still crossing.

“There were many, many groups that we would see on technology with camera radar or something like that that we could not go address because there were not enough Border Patrol agents,” the congressman said.

“These agents sometimes left to take a truck and then walk two miles through terrible terrain to get to these groups only to have them run while they’re already exhausted and they get lost in that chaos.”

Kinzinger further observed that part of the decrease in illegal crossings outside the ports of entry can be attributed to more migrants learning how to abuse U.S. asylum laws.

“But I’ll tell you what I saw was a lot of people coming over the border, a lot of drugs in the border and a lot of human trafficking,” the congressman reiterated. “I mean these coyotes that would get paid a lot of money to bring groups over and then desert them to save their own backside. It was extremely disturbing.”

Kinzinger contended that he believes Trump’s national emergency declaration is constitutional, and he will be voting against the Democratic resolution to overturn it.

“(B)ecause in this case like I said at the beginning, if this was just about immigration I would disagree,” he stated. “I do think this is a security threat. It’s a security threat with the amount of drugs coming over the border and the human trafficking that I’ve seen.”

A resolution rescinding Trump’s national emergency declaration is expected to pass the Democrat-controlled House on Tuesday. The fate of similar legislation in the Senate is less certain, where the Republicans hold a 53 to 47 advantage. GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine have indicated they would back Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s resolution, NBC News reported.

Several other Republican senators have expressed reservations about the president’s emergency declaration, including  Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, John Cornyn of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Marco Rubio of Florida. For the measure to pass, two more Republican senators must back the Democrat resolution.

In addition to the $1.375 billion Congress voted to authorize for barrier funding, the White House plans to redirect $3.6 billion from a military construction fund, $2.5 billion from a Department of Defense drug interdiction program and $600 million from the Treasury Department from a drug forfeiture fund.

The national emergency is specifically being used to tap the $3.6 billion from the military construction fund.

Trump tweeted on Monday, “I hope our great Republican Senators don’t get led down the path of weak and ineffective Border Security. Without strong Borders, we don’t have a Country – and the voters are on board with us. Be strong and smart, don’t fall into the Democrats “trap” of Open Borders and Crime!”

He added in a second tweet quoting from Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney: “Why on earth would any Republican vote not to put up a Wall or against Border Security. Please explain that to me?”

If the resolution passes both the Senate and the House, Trump has the veto power, which would require a two-thirds vote in both chambers to override him. Politico reported that Trump expressed confidence on Friday if he vetoed the measure, it would not be overridden.

“We have too many smart people that want border security so I can’t imagine it (the resolution) will survive a veto,” Trump said.

It’s Official: This Senate Vote Proves Dems Are Now ‘The Infanticide Party’


Written by Wes Walker on February 26, 2019

This will definitely become one of the defining issues of 2020. It should have been a non-controversial law, and it would have been had not the Democrats gone all-in and become the Party of Kermit Gosnell.

The entire argument about abortion until now hinged upon ‘my body my choice’. This vote proves that has been a lie all along. It has REALLY been about the right to kill the baby and avoid the parental responsibilities that go with it. How do we know this? Because this bill had nothing to do with the mother’s body. It had everything to do with a living, breathing infant that is born — despite the best efforts of an abortionist to kill it — being treated like one.

The logic of it should be uncontroversial: Not in her body. No longer her choice.

We can thank Virginia’s Governor Northam and his $3 Million in political donations from Planned Parenthood for bringing this issue to light. His infanticide statements are all-but-forgotten after the blackface/KKK yearbook photo and the Smollett Hoax, but they still have a legacy.

The GOP-led Senate only mustered 53 votes — seven shy of the 60 needed to overcome the Democratic filibuster. Three Democrats crossed the aisle to back the bill, while three Republicans missed the vote.

Backers said they were driven to act by recent state laws and bills they said would allow abortions up to the point of birth — and, in at least the case of one failed piece of legislation in Virginia, would have allowed a child born despite an attempted abortion to be left to die.

“It isn’t about new restrictions on abortion. It isn’t about changing the options available to women. It’s just about recognizing that a newborn baby is a newborn baby. Period,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican. He said it made him “uneasy” that such legislation was even considered controversial.
Source: Washington Times

In the lead-up to the vote, parties made their respective cases:

The Senate is currently debating the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act on the floor and will vote on the legislation later this evening. The bill, sponsored by Senator Ben Sasse (R., Neb.) requires that doctors provide medical care to infants born alive after attempted abortion procedures.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell opened the session, saying of the bill, “It isn’t about restrictions on abortion. It isn’t about changing the options available to women. It’s just about recognizing that a newborn baby is a newborn baby, period.”

“Can the extreme far-left politics surrounding abortion really have come this far?” McConnell added. “Are we really supposed to think that it’s normal that there are now two sides debating whether a newborn, whether newborn living babies deserve medical attention?”
Source: National Review

The answer, clearly, is ‘yes’.

Schumer stood up and lied to the public:

Shortly after McConnell’s remarks, Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said on the Senate floor that the born-alive bill “is carefully crafted to target, intimidate, and shut down reproductive health care providers.” He also claimed the bill “would impose requirements on what type of care doctors must provide in certain circumstances, even if that care is ineffective, contradictory to medical evidence, and against the family’s wishes.”

In fact, the bill doesn’t mandate any particular type of care for infants, and the medical specifics are left up to the judgment of the physician in each case. Instead, it enacts a requirement that newborns delivered in the context of abortion be afforded “the same degree” of care that “any other child born alive at the same gestational age” would receive.
Source: National Review

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness does NOT extend to only SOME Americans. It extends to even the smallest among us. Our politicians are looking less and less like AMERICANS and increasing like ancient Romans and Greeks that would leave unwanted children in the wild to be devoured by beasts. Not long ago, Abortion activists would have denied wanting abortion on demand right up to the moment of birth — and now, to exercise their ‘choice’ to infanticide even after the baby is born.

GREAT NEWS: President Trump Announces Release of Hostage Danny Burch from Yemen


Reported by John Hayward | Monday February 25, 2019

American held hostage in Yemen freed: Trump
AFP SAUL LOEB

President Donald Trump on Monday announced the release of Danny Burch, an American citizen who has been held hostage in Yemen since 2017. Trump thanked the United Arab Emirates for assisting with Burch’s liberation and said his administration has now secured the freedom of 20 Americans held captive in various countries.

Trump delivered the good news on Monday through his preferred social media platform, Twitter:

Danny Burch was taken from his car by a squad of gunmen in broad daylight on the streets of Yemen’s capital Sanaa in September 2017. A native of East Texas, Burch was 63 years old at the time of his abduction and had been living in Yemen for several years while working as an engineer for the Yemeni Safer oil company. Burch converted to Islam during his time in Yemen and married a Yemen woman. The couple has three children, the oldest of whom was 12 when he was taken.

The abduction occurred in an area controlled by the Iran-backed Houthi insurgents who drove Yemen’s internationally-recognized government out of Sanaa. The Houthis initially denounced the kidnapping as a “criminal and cowardly act” and vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice, but were eventually revealed to be holding him prisoner.

Burch was transferred from Yemen to Oman in January 2018, traveling in the company of a senior Houthi official. This event was widely described as the Houthis “releasing” Burch, but he was evidently unable to return to his family until today. A March 2018 briefing from CriticalThreats.org stated the Houthi official who traveled to Oman with Burch was a negotiator named Mohammed Ali al-Houthi and noted the timing of Burch’s purported “release” coincided with “renewed al-Houthi overtures for negotiations.” Salam subsequently left Oman for Iran and met with Iranian officials including Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

At the time of this writing, the White House has not clarified Burch’s status since January 2018 or detailed the negotiations that ultimately reunited him with his family.

Transgender Runners Take 1st and 2nd in Connecticut High School Track Championships


Reported by Warner Todd Huston | Monday, February 25, 2019

Several transgender students have dominated high school track and field competitions in Connecticut for the last few years. And, once again, transgender teen runner Andraya Yearwood has topped most of the field in the state championships.

Yearwood has been running for Cromwell High School in Cromwell, CT, for the past few seasons, the Washington Times reported.

But this year, Yearwood was not alone in topping the field. Indeed, two transgender students took the top spots in The Nutmeg State. Yearwood came in second place this year as transgender student Terry Miller of Bloomfield High beat Yearwood and the rest of the biologically female field of competitors.

But, as the Times reported, some in Connecticut are objecting to the situation.

“We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing,” biologically female teen runner Selina Soule said. “I fully support and am happy for these athletes for being true to themselves. They should have the right to express themselves in school, but athletics have always had extra rules to keep the competition fair.”

Soule’s point of fairness was also recently raised by tennis great Martina Navratilova. The multiple Wimbledon winner said males should not be allowed to compete against females. No matter how many hormones they take or how much surgery they’ve had, they are still males born with a male’s strength and physical traits, she said.

Navratilova wrote a long op-ed revealing her feelings against transgender athletes being allowed acceptance under their chosen gender, calling the idea that men can compete as women “insane” and “cheating.” But her candor and considered opinion were too much for the gay advocacy group, Athlete Ally.

Athlete Ally released a statement last week accusing Navratilova of being “transphobic” and adding that she “has been removed from our Advisory Board and as an Athlete Ally Ambassador, effective immediately.”

Nolte: Luddite Ocasio-Cortez Says We All Need to Stop Reproducing


Commentary by John Nolte | Monday, February 25, 2019

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took her climate alarmism to a whole new level Sunday when she said we should stop having children.

Using Instagram, America’s socialist “It Girl” filmed herself cutting up some food while she spread wild-eyed conspiracy theories about life as we know it ceasing in 12 years — a false claim she has made in the past.

On the issue of having children, she suggested it would be irresponsible to sentence young people to the holy environmental hell that is sure to come — unless, of course, we sign on to her Green New Deal, which would require us to slaughter all the cattle (to stop their deadly farts), end air travel, eliminate automobiles, turn our freedoms over to educated-but-dumb central planners like Ocasio-Cortez, and agree to return to the Dark Ages, a world where hot water heaters, TVs, and automobiles will be useless on a cloudy day.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, Is it okay to still have children?”

What planet is she living on?

Our air has never been cleaner, our water has never been clearer, there are more trees in America today than there were a hundred years ago, the crying Indian solved our litter problem, we are living longer and healthier lives, and we continue to find an abundance of natural resources, including natural gas and oil.

As a child of the ’70s, I marvel at the difference between now and then, and what got us here are the kind of technical innovations that can only come from a capitalistic society and the American people voting for common sense laws about protecting our water and air.

Ocasio-Cortez is a hysterical, power-mad luddite, a charismatic grifter desperate to undermine all the technological progress of the last hundred years.

Our species has already tried to live off of green power, to live off the whims of the water, land, sun, fire, and wind… It sucked. If you want to know what life looks like under Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, watch HBO’s Deadwood.

And you can bet that while we are all living in massive government housing projects taking cold showers and eating seaweed burgers, Ocasio-Cortez and her ilk will be living like Stalin in a dacha by the sea.

For decades we have suffered with the threat of these climate hucksters, these fanatics who tell us the end is nigh unless we give up everything that makes life worth living, including our freedoms.

They told us….

  • Another Ice Age is coming.
  • Overpopulation would mean worldwide starvation.
  • Nuclear war is imminent.
  • The oceans will be dead by 1995.
  • The ozone layer will disappear.
  • Super hurricanes would wipe out our East Coast.
  • New York would be underwater by now.
  • We would run out of oil by 1999.
  • The end of snow!
  • Seal levels would rise 20 feet by now.
  • The ocean conveyor would shut down.
  • Polar bears would be extinct.
  • The Arctic Ocean would be ice free by now.

…and it was all lies.

Oh, and as I speak, our planet is cooling — not a crazy kind of cooling, but enough to prove that this living organism we live on runs through various cycles and could care less if we drive a Prius or Hummer.

Ocasio-Cortez is young and attractive and talks like a harmless Disney character, but she is crazed for power and telling audacious lies in pursuit of it.

Hate Hoax: Prosecutors Charge LGBT Activist with Burning Down Own Home with Pets Inside


Reported by Joshua Caplan | February 25, 2019

Jackson Police Department

The Detroit News reported Monday that law enforcement charge Joly, a transgender man from Jackson, Michigan, burned down her own home, killing five pets inside, in what was initially investigated by the FBI as an alleged hate crime in 2017. The newspaper, citing two individuals who worked along Joly at St. Johns United Church of Christ, where the Jackson Pride Center is based from, reported that Jolly, 54, had become “frustrated the controversy over gay rights had died down with the passage of the nondiscrimination law.”

The Detroit News reported:

The church officials, Barbara Shelton and Bobby James, when asked by police about a possible motive for the fire, said Joly was disappointed the Jackson Pride Parade and Festival, held five days before the blaze, hadn’t received more attention or protests.

Contacted by a reporter, James declined to comment. But Shelton quibbled with the way police characterized her remarks, saying she had no idea if Joly was frustrated by the lack of controversy.

“Not sure I said that,” she wrote in an email. “I have no idea about anything, never heard Nikki comment in any fashion about anything like that.”

Police officer Aaron Grove, who interviewed Shelton and James, said the pair described Joly as “‘very deceptive” and possessing “layers of manipulation.”

Joly, who was named MLive’s 2018 Citizen of the Year, spearheaded several LGBTQ-friendly initiatives and events, including the town’s first gay festival.

“It’s embarrassing,” said Travis Trombley, a gay resident of Jackson and former ally of Jolly. “How do you do it to the community you have put so much effort into helping?”

The paper reports that five pets — two German Shepherds and three cats — died in the fire. The body of one dog blocked a door as firefighters tried to enter.

The alleged hate hoax comes after Chicago prosecutors charged Empire actor Jussie Smollett for filing a false report with police in connection to staging a racist and homophobic attack on himself last month.

Smollett told police two masked individuals hurled bigoted insults and doused him with an unknown chemical substance while walking home from a sandwich shop at 2 a.m. on January 29. The actor also told police his assailants looped a thin rope around his neck and shouted “This is MAGA country!” before fleeing. He allegedly enlisted the help of two brothers — Abimbola “Abel” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo — to stage the attack, paying them $3,500 by check.

Smollett returned to the Chicago set of Empire after posting bond for $100,000 at a Cook County courthouse hours prior. However, Smollett’s role on the hit FOX studios program is uncertain as executive producers considering recasting his character.

New Section of Wall Completed Whopping 47 Days Ahead of Schedule & Trump Has the Video


Reported By Kara Pendleton | Published February 22, 2019 at 4:40pm

President Donald Trump has been under heavy fire from all sides over the southern border wall. He has been criticized for not doing enough, for signing a bad bill and for declaring a national emergency to pay for the barrier. But in typical Trump fashion, the businessman with building experience has been working hard to keep his campaign promise about building the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

So while the hits have been coming, construction has been taking place along the border. As you might expect when the president is more of a builder than a bureaucrat, the work on one section in New Mexico was completed early.

Trump shared video of the astonishing feat Wednesday on Twitter:

While this construction being finished 47 days ahead of schedule should leave some eating crow, not everyone eased up on the attacks against the president and the wall. A common theme has been the semantics of the thing.

In his tweet, Trump called what was built a “wall.” To some, it is a “fence” or “steel slats.” Others have taken to calling the border security construction a “barrier” instead of a “wall” now.

Whatever name it is given, the purpose remains the same.

Trump addressed the question of building materials late last year.

So while some are upset about various aspects of the wall and its funding, Trump is, in fact, working to get the border secured.

Does it really matter what it looks like if it works? This speedy construction in New Mexico raises new hope. The faster the barrier can be completed, the better for national security.

Indiana authorities seized and auctioned off his Land Rover, even though it was not purchased with drug money, on grounds that he used it to commit crimes by driving it while dealing drugs (with that kind of tenuous connection, they could have seized his sneakers, too.)

He challenged the seizure, but the state Supreme Court ruled against him on grounds that the U.S. Supreme Court never explicitly said that the Eighth Amendment applies to states, too. Well, now they have. Talk about things that should have gone without saying!

Asset forfeiture laws were originally well-intentioned and meant to ensure that criminals didn’t profit from their crimes. But over the years, some places started abusing them as a method of raising revenue by seizing and auctioning private property that had little or no connection with criminal behavior, leaving citizens with scant recourse or financial resources to fight it.

As this story notes, the lack of Eighth Amendment protections on the state level also led to abuses such as heavy fines for tiny infractions, such as using the wrong house paint colors or Halloween decorations.

During oral arguments of the case, Justice Breyer got Indiana’s solicitor general to admit that the state could conceivably seize someone’s car for driving five miles over the speed limit, which sparked laughter in the court.

This is a welcome and long overdue ruling. Too many young people (some of them recently elected to Congress) have no concept of the foundational importance of property rights. They seem fine with the idea of government being able to take as much of the fruits of other people’s labors as it wants, as long as it promises to “redistribute” other people’s money in the form of free stuff.


They need to learn the wise old saying that a government that’s big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.

Homeland Security: Number of Illegals Apprehended at Southern Border Nearly Doubles


Reported By Jason Hopkins | Published February 20, 2019 at 11:16am  | Modified February 21, 2019 at 5:44am

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection — a subset agency of the Department of Homeland Security — reported a total of 47,893 apprehensions of illegal migrants in January at the Southwest border, a region of the U.S.-Mexico border that is the most active. The number marked an increase of nearly 22,000 arrests, or 84 percent, from January 2018.

The huge uptick could suggest more illegal immigrants will try to cross the U.S.-Mexico border in 2019 than originally anticipated.

Princeton Policy Advisors — a group that analyses immigration trends — is currently forecasting 606,000 apprehensions for the entire year, but they left the door open to increase this projection.

“The January numbers don’t yet warrant an upward revision in our forecast of 606,000 apprehensions in 2019. But we are on notice,” Steven Kopits, president of Princeton, stated to the Washington Examiner. “Buckle your seat belts: 2019 could be a wild ride at the southwest border.”

The January numbers reflect a growing trend at the U.S.-Mexico border. Nearly 467,000 apprehensions took place at the U.S. Southern border in 2018, more than any other calendar year since at least 2012, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center. The spike in arrests was led in large part by migrant families attempting to reach the U.S. illegally at the tail end of 2018. While rising apprehensions can be indicative of more migrants attempting to enter the U.S., the numbers also reflect an evolving strategy among illegal migrants.

Many illegal immigrants reach the border with the intention of getting caught by border patrol where they can then make an asylum claim. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, for example, recorded 78,564 asylum requests in 2017, a huge increase from the 13,880 requests made in 2012.

“Remember, the problem right now isn’t people crossing the border illegally. It’s people presenting themselves to border patrol agents – people who want to get apprehended so they can lodge a frivolous asylum claim,” RJ Hauman, director of government relations for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, stated to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“They know we don’t have the detention space, so we just release them into the interior of the country.”

Hey CNN: Here’s Some Of That Senseless Political Violence You’re So Desperate To Report On


Written by Wes Walker on February 22, 2019

Here’s video of a bully unleashing a brutal attack in broad daylight on campus against an unresisting victim — over politics. Is that news? It would be if he didn’t play for the other team.

I’m not holding my breath for Don Lemon to swap phone numbers with this victim — even though he took the high road and didn’t escalate.

This attack happened in ‘WOKE’ Berkely the ironic birthplace of a Free Speech movement of all places. Of course, it’s been a long time since it bore any resemblance to a birthplace of freedom. These days it’s better known for Antifa, BAMF, students being bashed over the head with bike locks swung by masked professors and the riot that erupted when Milo tried to speak there.

Oddly enough, nobody tends to riot when far LEFT-wing opinions show up demanding to be heard.

Now, that aggressive ‘punch-a-Nazi’ culture has emboldened people to assault strangers in the street.

The campus police website said that two men on Tuesday approached a table where the activist was recruiting members to his group, and an argument ensued. The alleged victim, identified by Turning Point USA as Hayden Williams, held up his cell phone and began filming the two men who were allegedly harassing him. One of the two men knocked over the table, police said, and then punched Williams several times, causing injuries to his face. Much of the incident was captured on a witness’ cellphone, but it was unclear what, if anything, Williams may have said before the attack.

The suspects had left by the time police arrived.

Although Williams was helping Turning Point USA, he is not actually a member of the group. Williams is campus representative for Leadership Institute, according to Campus Reform, a conservative news site that the institute operates.

A witness told Fox News the recruitment table had a sign that said: “Hate Crime Hoaxes Hurt Real Victims,” in reference to the case of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, who is accused of staging a bias attack against himself in downtown Chicago last month.

“College campuses have become increasingly unsafe for conservatives,” Charlie Kirk, the founder and executive director of Turning Point USA, told Fox News. “Our amazing Turning Point USA team was talking and then confronted by the hateful left which resulted in the assault and punching in the face just because of a difference of opinion. If the attacker was wearing a MAGA hat, this would be classified as a hate crime and all over every news channel.”
Source: FoxNews

There was praise on social media for the unprovoked violence, which included several punches to the face. The victim’s eye was swollen shut. An appeal also went out to find the attacker.

What was his act of ‘provocation’? He had a table set up and he was inviting people to participate in Turning Point USA.

On the upside… he got more publicity for his cause than he could have hoped for. And he didn’t hit back, so even the most jaded critic can’t wrongly attribute the violence or claim that both parties were equally guilty.

A spokesperson from Berkeley has officially and unequivocally condemned the attack.

This guy, who was linked to the attacks when Milo came to Berkeley in 2017, is being put forward as the likely culprit:

Dabney Miller, a staff member at the UC Berkeley, bragged about how he beat conservatives. He posted images of one man he knocked to the ground and pummeled with his fists before someone pulled him away.

Dabney Miller draws a paycheck from the UC Berkeley administration.
The Gateway Pundit

He is/was drawing a paycheck from Berkeley?

It’s time we stopped celebrating the ‘punch-a-nazi’ culture as edgy and subversive and started treating them as the brownshirts they are. Too mentally deficient to win an argument through logic, they intimidate people more principled than themselves with acts of violence.

If that ‘tough guy’ ever found himself in general population with some actual badasses, he’d figure out pretty quickly that he’s not as high up on the pecking order as he thinks.

Good for the student to stand his ground and not escalate things… he scored a PR victory. But it wouldn’t hurt to take some BJJ training so he knows how to defend himself in the future.

Better to have it and not need it…

CNN Desperate: Hires Conservative to Save Political Face


Reported By Tiffany Layne |

#TeamKJ; #KevinJackson

CNN is desperate to save face, or cover their ass. Either way, they’ve done the unthinkable.

Honestly, I’d love to be a fly on the wall when CNN told staffers a conservative was coming on board. Ironically, CNN felt the need to make this drastic change before heading into the 2020 election, after spending two years basically bragging about their left-bias. It’s an interesting strategy to say the least.

Jewish World Review writes:

Sarah Isgur, a longtime Republican spokesperson, will join the network to help direct its political coverage, including the Democratic primaries and Trump’s reelection campaign, the network confirmed on Tuesday.
The hiring, first reported by Politico, is unusual for a number of reasons. Isgur hasn’t worked in journalism, and has no experience managing a TV news operation. She has spent the bulk of her career as a Republican advocate, working in behalf of such candidates as Mitt Romney, Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina and the Republican National Committee.
Most recently she was the spokeswoman for the Justice Department, under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom Trump forced out in November.

Is the Trump Hate Wearing Thin?

The Leftist media has been a problem for Republicans for a long time. However, since Trump’s campaign, CNN has become the foremost offender, spreading a false narrative at every turn. Even when Trump successes are undeniable, CNN looks for a way to ignore the triumph or give someone else the credit.

The most laughable attempt happens when CNN pretends Obama’s actions created Trump’s economy. Of course, anyone with a brain the size of a marble knows Obama destroyed our economy. And Trump more than restored it.

Yet, CNN repeatedly feeds viewers a negative narrative about Donald Trump. But unlike other presidents, Trump tackles the criticism head-on.

Tense White House Coverage

CNN’s White House coverage is inexplicably dramatic. No one can forget the moment Jim Acosta’s gross misconduct led to suspended press credentials. Acosta thought his behavior would be overlooked, but my grandfather used to have a saying. “Don’t take a knife to a gun-fight,” which is exactly what Acosta did when he challenged Donald Trump.

Even though Acosta’s credentials were restored, Trump quickly put measures in place to permanently rid the White House of Acosta’s biased coverage.

But even when CNN is called out for spreading vicious lies, they don’t care. In fact, CNN’s Jeff Zucker once bragged that insults from Donald Trump boost ratings.

Last year, CNN ignored a wake-up call.

As Kevin Jackson pointed out:

CNN didn’t make the Top Ten networks in primetime viewers for the week of March 6, according to the latest report from Nielsen Media Research.

It was the first time CNN felt the consequences of their shoddy reporting. Kevin went on to write:

Sure all presidents create news, but nobody does it better than Trump.
Even when the president blasts CNN as “fake news” in their ongoing feud, that’s news. And as President Trump proves, putting the network on blast has bad consequences…for the offending network.
In the latest Neilsen rankings, CNN ranked No. 11 in total prime time viewers, losing to No. 3 ranked MSNBC for the 7th week in a row. The top five networks in prime time were Fox News, ESPN, MSNBC, HGTV, and Discovery, respectively.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal recently, Zucker admitted that critics accusing the network of mainstream media liberal bias were accurate. He commented that this year CNN has been striving to make changes to be more fair and balanced.
“I think it was a legitimate criticism of CNN that it was a little too liberal…We have added many more middle-of-the-road conservative voices to an already strong stable of liberal voices.”
Apparently, CNN no longer boasts about their disdain for President Trump. I suspect you will see Zucker fall on the sword a few more times this year before his fate finally sinks in.

We expected the tide at CNN to start turning once ratings plummeted.

But apparently they needed an entire year for it to fully sink in. The mainstream media is no longer held in high regard. Instead, the network is the butt of many jokes.

As for Acosta, he can barely say White House without crying. Just last week, he was on air, whining about the supporters of Donald Trump. Apparently, he claimed his life was in jeopardy. Of course, that too was #FakeNews.

Obviously Acosta isn’t the only CNN offender.

We could write ten chapters on Don Lemon and his scandalous stupidity. But in the interest of time, let’s just say Lemon doesn’t ever give the President the benefit of the doubt. He takes every possible opportunity to jab the president, sometimes storming off stage in a fit a drama queen rage.

I’m guessing these antics are no longer enough to fuel ratings at CNN. The public is growing tired of the mainstream media bias. Thus, CNN was forced to take drastic measures. Now, with Isgur on board, CNN’s narrative will be forced to include a more balanced perspective.

It’s a sad day when offering the truth is considered drastic, but CNN didn’t earn the #FakeNews moniker for their honesty. It will be refreshing, or at least entertaining, to see what happens when a conservative shakes things up.

Gay Mayor Who Heavily Attacked Kavanaugh Now Desperate for Due Process


Reported By Ben Marquis | Published February 18, 2019 at 7:09pm

During the contentious confirmation hearings of then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in October 2018, countless officials and pundits on the left played the role of judge, jury and executioner in regard to vague and uncorroborated allegations of sexual assault lodged against the nominee.

One of Kavanaugh’s many outspoken critics was the Democratic mayor/city council member of West Hollywood, John Duran, who was sharply critical of the judge’s behavior during the confirmation hearings and seemed to have uncritically accepted at face value the unconfirmed allegations of sexual misconduct that had been made public.

West Hollywood media outlet WEHOville reported in Oct. 2018 that Duran had joined with the rest of the city council to officially condemn Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the high court. Duran said, “Brett Kavanaugh’s display of rage and belligerence at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings proves that he does not have the temperament to be a judge — much less on the Supreme Court.”

“It is abhorrent to think we are placing our future, our equality, and our liberty in the hands of a drunken frat boy who sexually assaulted a teenage girl while his friend Mark Judge stood by and laughed. This is a sad moment in the history of our nation,” Mayor Duran added.

Fast-forward just four months and now the openly gay mayor of West Hollywood is singing an entirely different tune when it comes to the credibility of sexual misconduct allegations against individuals in positions of power, as he has come under fire in his own “#MeToo” scandal.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Duran stands accused of having sexually harassed at least three current or former members of the Gay Men’s Chorus in L.A. — of which Duran serves as chairman of the board — which consisted of his sticking his hand down their pants or making sexually suggestive comments.

The mayor also stands accused of using the gay dating app Grindr during public meetings, including in at least one instance of using the app’s messaging service to repeatedly make unwanted and inappropriate sexual advances toward an aide for a fellow council member.

On top of that, Duran has also been linked to the scandalous deaths of two gay black men at the home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck. Duran, who is also an attorney, used to represent Buck.

Despite calls for him to resign from several of his fellow council members, the unashamedly homosexual mayor stands defiant, and told the Times that it was all just a “culture clash,” and that, “If somebody expresses himself or herself sexually, that doesn’t make it harassment, per se.”

As to the use of Grindr to pursue sexual acts with the council member’s aide, that aide’s boyfriend — city events service coordinator Mike Gerle — filed a formal complaint against the mayor. Gerle said, “It’s about consent. … He has this sense of entitlement that because we’re gay, ‘I can do whatever I want with you because that’s our culture.’ He’s decided that’s our culture. He doesn’t understand that every gay man gets to decide what interactions he has. You don’t get a pass.”

For his part, Duran hypocritically sought to demand the due process he had denied Kavanaugh and defend himself from the accusations lodged against him in a lengthy statement posted to Facebook, a post that concluded with a vehement “HELL NO” in response to the demands that he resign.

Duran wrote, “SEXUAL HARASSMENT is a serious issue. Accusations must be taken seriously and addressed. This has been extremely painful for women for decades and decades. But once the allegations are made and received, there MUST be an investigation before conclusions are reached.”

“This is DUE PROCESS of law in the courts. And I know those rules do not apply in the court of public opinion,” he continued. “It’s much easier in this social media world for people to read something, ‘like’ it, retweet it and then move on.”

“But none of us (including me) wants to ever be accused falsely and have people jump to opinion and conclusion without any process in between. That is contempt prior to investigation,” he added, apparently oblivious to how differently he treated Kavanaugh versus how he demands to be treated.

After playing up all of the work he had done over the years on behalf of the gay community, Duran noted, “Now, I understand that the ground has shifted in a tectonic way with the ‘Me Too’ movement. I get that. But the pendulum swings too far when accusation is treated as truth, and mobs swirl around rumor and conclusions are drawn based on someone’s race, gender or sexual orientation and accusation alone. That leads to injustice.”

Too bad Duran didn’t apply that same standard to Kavanaugh just four months ago, while he hypocritically now demands it be applied to himself.

Liberals VANDALIZE Border Patrol Museum – Defacing Photos Of Fallen Agents


Written by Wes Walker on February 19, 2019

The line has been drawn. One side is for rule of law, and the other side… does crap like this. Chuck and Nancy, and all those Media(D) / Hollywood lackeys carrying their water — take a good look at the fruit of your labor.

Instead of moralizing about how Iconic Red Hats turn people crazy and make them do violent acts (which are very frequently later proven to be hoaxes) how about we talk about Liberals overheated rhetoric about the ‘immorality’ of the wall and of Border Control Agents doing their job keeping people like El Chapo’s goons out of America.

This is the same agency who have successfully CAUGHT and arrested people trying to traffic children into sex slavery and setting their victims free from the horrific life that awaited them. The same agency that is intercepting the Fentanyl and other illegal drugs now killing alarming numbers of US citizens.

Museum director David Ham told the Washington Examiner his staff and guests worried for their safety Saturday when a group of about 50 rowdy protesters entered the facility, defaced property, and refused to leave the grounds.

“Say it loud, say it clear, Border Patrol kills!” group members standing inside and outside the facility yelled.

Security cameras set up outside the private museum captured protesters pulling into the parking lot and putting on face masks before going inside around 2:15 p.m. local time.

“That was really intimidating to our staff, plus their kind of aggressive attitude,” said the museum official, a 31-year veteran of the Border Patrol. The museum is a nonprofit and apolitical.

…The group, which calls itself Tornillo: The Occupation, livestreamed the protest. Footage showed dozens of people whose faces were covered with garments walking into the museum and fanning out through the building.

…Protesters plastered dozens of images on pictures, glass, painted walls, mannequins, and vehicles throughout the building. They also posted the pictures on the faces of Border Patrol agents who died in the line of duty.

…Ham said the pictures had an adhesive on the back of them that was stronger than normal tape.

“It’s very hard to remove. They [staff] tried to remove some and they tear off. We’ve got antique cars, old Border Patrol vehicles, and an aircraft. We’re kind of worried it’s going to peel the paint off,” said Ham. “I know it’s peeled the paint off some of our walls.”
Source: WashingtonExaminer

When fear of a mob of masked protesters forces museum patrons to hide in the gift shop, you can hardly claim to be assembling ‘peaceably’.

Even their propaganda line about dead children is a lie. The autopsy for the seven-year-old girl showed she died of ‘sepsis’, a blood infection that would have been in advanced stages even when border authorities first met her. Why the protesters are blaming US authorities, and not the parents who shlepped her in a dangerous trek across the desert is a separate question.

WATCH: This Statue Of Trump Will Melt Snowflakes – His Sword Is HILARIOUS


Written by Wes Walker on February 19, 2019

London’s little Trump Baloon looks pretty pathetic next to a five-story Trump meme come to life!

You can relax, it’s not ‘hero worship’. It all started out as an internet meme. ‘God-Emperor Trump’ There were so many variations on a theme, drawing from a combination of history and pop culture references…

…that it was almost inevitable that it found its way into the real world… as a five-story-tall parade float. And yes, if you’re wondering, that IS the Twitter logo on the hilt of his enormous sword.

We’ve gotta admit, that float IS pretty badass. But seriously, how could you possibly fit five stories of snowflake-melting MAGA into your living room?

CBS’s Lara Logan Bravely Calls Out Establishment Media Bias: ‘This Interview Is Professional Suicide’


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | Published February 19, 2019 at 10:24am  | Modified February 19, 2019 at 10:44am

During an appearance on a podcast last week, CBS News correspondent Lara Logan said, “This interview is professional suicide for me.”

Boy, she wasn’t lying. In a moment of bravery or serious miscalculation, Logan decided to tell the truth. And it wasn’t about anything salacious — an extramarital affair, fabricating a story, anything like that. Instead, she said what we all more or less know: The media is biased toward the left.

The CBS correspondent, best known for her reporting from war zones, had made the appearance on the “Mike Drop” podcast with former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland, who had said that the media was “absurdly left-leaning,” a “huge f—— problem” and a “disaster for this country.”

“I agree with that. That’s true,” Logan said.

“The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just the U.S.,” she said, according to Newsbusters. “But in this country, 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats. So that’s just a fact, right?”

“Visually, anyone who’s ever been to Israel and been to the Wailing Wall has seen that the women have this tiny little spot in front of the wall to pray, and the rest of the wall is for the men,” she said.

“To me, that’s a great representation of the American media, is that in this tiny little corner where the women pray you’ve got Breitbart and Fox News and a few others, and from there on, you have CBS, ABC, NBC, Huffington Post, Politico, whatever, right? All of them. And that’s a problem for me, because even if it was reversed, if it was vastly mostly on the right, that would also be a problem for me.

“My experience has been that the more opinions you have, the more ways that you look at everything in life — everything in life is complicated, everything is gray, right?” she continued. “Nothing is black and white.”

When it came to the liberal sameness of the media, Logan said it represents problems when it comes to trust: “How do you know you’re being lied to? How do you know you’re being manipulated?”

I would argue that most people, at this point, have realized that they’re being lied to, but that’s neither here nor there. And it wasn’t just media: Logan said that “creating one ideological position on everything throughout your universities, throughout academia, in school and college, in media, and everywhere else, that’s what concerns me.”

Logan also cast doubt on so-called “grassroots” political campaigns.

“We don’t even question if what we see on social media is real or not. We don’t even question if a grassroots movement is really grassroots,” she said.

“You know, there’s a way to start a grassroots movement. You write an algorithm, and you create all this outrage, and you’re basically throwing out all the sparks that light the fire, so then it becomes a grassroots movement because it takes nothing to set that in motion. But did it really begin as one? And if it didn’t begin that way, but was manipulated and paid for by someone and serves someone’s political purpose, is it really what we believe it is?”

And there were other truths to be served up: “We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that,” she said, later adding that, “Responsibility for fake news begins with us.”

As for the president: “For example, the coverage on Trump, all the time, is negative,” she said.

“There’s no mitigating policy, or event or anything that has happened since he was elected that is out there in the media that you can read about, right?

“Well, that tells you, that’s distortion of the way things go in real life.”

She also went off on single-sourced stories: “We have a few conventions — because they are not really rules — but you need at least two first-hand sources for something, right? Those things help keep your work to a certain standard. Those standards are out the window. I mean, you read one story or another and hear it and it’s all based on one anonymous administration official, former administration official. That’s not journalism. That’s horses—. Sorry. That is absolute horses—.”

That’s also basically a compendium of ways to commit career suicide. The media is all supposed to say they’re objective. Democracy dies in darkness, right?

The facts are the facts, however. The media is almost uniformly left. Outlets like ours, The Daily Wire and Breitbart are outliers and act as correctives, but there’s only so much we can do when arrayed against broadcast networks, newspapers and cable channels. This is the unalloyed truth — and that’s why it’s going to get a lot of pushback at CBS and with other media outlets.

Limbaugh: Mueller Investigation a ‘Cover-Up,’ Meant To ‘Distract Everybody’s Attention’


Reported By Randy DeSoto | Published February 18, 2019 at 11:17am  | Modified February 18, 2019 at 11:20am

Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said he believes special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was launched to “cover-up” the misdeeds within the Justice Department, including the FBI’s attempted “coup” against President Donald Trump.

During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” Limbaugh was asked to respond to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s account that he was involved with a discussion with Justice Department Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein in May 2017 regarding invoking the 25th Amendment to have Trump removed from office.

Fox News host Chris Wallace asked the commentator why he described this revelation as evidence of a “silent coup.”

“Because these people are unelected,” Limbaugh answered. “They took it upon themselves to overthrow the election results of 2016, ignoring the potential real collusion and conspiracy between Democrats and Russians to undermine the Trump candidacy and the Trump presidency.”

“We’re losing sight of what happened here,” he continued. “People unelected simply because they don’t like the guy’s hairstyle or where he came from decided the American people’s decision was invalid and began a systematic process to get him thrown out of office. This is a silent coup.”

Limbaugh contended that those involved in these discussions are the ones who ought to be under investigation and going to jail.

“The Mueller investigation, I believe, is a cover-up of all of that. It’s to distract everybody’s attention,” he said. “This is one of the greatest political hoaxes that has ever be perpetrated on the people of this country.”

The conservative icon said the prosecution of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and others affiliated with the campaign for process crimes is all “designed to make it look like there was some kind of collusion between Trump and Russia.”

Limbaugh noted that no one has been prosecuted to date for the stated purpose of Mueller’s probe, which was to examine Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 election, including whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow. Many political observers, including Fox News host Sean Hannity, have pointed to the special counsel’s apparent lack of interest in investigating the origin and use of the so-called Trump Russia dossier as proof that Mueller is overseeing a one-side, agenda-driven probe.

The dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign, was reportedly used to help obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.

Limbaugh said that a primary goal of Mueller’s investigation was to be the vehicle used to justify impeaching Trump, but now it is aimed toward the 2020 election and driving down the president’s approval numbers.

Trump tweeted on Monday, “Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught.”

He added in a second tweet, “There is a lot of explaining to do to the millions of people who had just elected a president who they really like and who has done a great job for them with the Military, Vets, Economy and so much more. This was the illegal and treasonous ‘insurance policy’ in full action!”

The Department of Justice’s inspector general released a report last April concluding that McCabe “lacked candor, including under oath, on multiple occasions in connection with describing his role in connection with a disclosure to the (Wall Street Journal)” in violation of FBI policy, and that his “disclosure of the existence of an ongoing investigation in the manner described in this report violated the FBI’s and the Department’s media policy and constituted misconduct.”

The OIG made a criminal referral to the DOJ regarding McCabe’s alleged lies to federal investigators.

In March 2018, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe based on the OIG’s findings two days before he was slated to retire.

McCabe came under increased scrutiny following the release of text messages by the inspector general in December 2017 between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

In the texts, Strzok described Trump during the 2016 campaign as a “loathsome human” and an “idiot,” and found the prospect of him being president “terrifying.”

Page, who was having an affair with Strzok, texted him, “There is no way (Trump) gets elected.”

Strzok then replied, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office … that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.

“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

Andy” apparently referred to McCabe.

The Modern Democratic Party: 2020 Candidate Throws Support Behind ‘Third Gender’ at Federal Level


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | Published February 17, 2019 at 10:36am

Presidential races never shape up the way you think they’re going to. For instance, at this moment in time back in 2015, we were all talking about how Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio were going to be duking it out for the Republican nomination.

That being said, the official wisdom for the Democrat nomination in 2020 is that Joe Biden will be sucking up all the air in the establishment and Bernie Sanders will have solidified the socialist segment of the party, so the key is staking out a position somewhere on the not-quite-socialist identity politics left.

The problem is that’s a crowded market segment. Democrat Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar and Kirsten Gillibrand — all of whom fit in that political niche — have already declared their intentions to run. And then there’s Beto O’Rourke — an insanely rich, insanely privileged white guy the Democrats still seem to believe is an identity politics hero because he livestreams himself skateboarding an awful lot, or something — who will probably end up in the race, too.

How, then, to differentiate one’s brand in such a crowded field?

Elizabeth Warren has called for an ultra-millionaire tax which is probably unconstitutional and a bad idea even if it weren’t.

Kamala Harris seems to be on board for doing something about legalizing marijuana at the national level, telling interviewers, according to Politico, that “it gives a lot of people joy. And we need more joy.”

Cory Booker has been talking about his vegan diet as if it were an actual campaign issue, even though he swears “whatever you eat is a very personal decision and everybody should what eat what they want to eat.”

So, taxing the heck out of the rich is taken. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris have both taken plant advocacy off the table, albeit in very different ways. What’s left for Kirsten Gillibrand?

Well, how about endorsing the legal recognition of a third gender classification at the federal level?

“New York Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a 2020 candidate, endorsed federal implementation of a third gender listing for Americans who identify as non-binary. Speaking at an LGBTQ-focused meet and greet in New Hampshire on Friday, Gillibrand emphatically said ‘yes’ about recognizing ‘X’ as a third gender marker,” CBS News reported.

“Palana Belken, a transgender woman and organizer for the American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire, asked Gillibrand the question and applauded her quick answer.”

The ball’s in your court now, Kamala.

The “X” identification is currently available in a number of states as well as individual cities, but no move has been made to implement it on a federal level.

“Belken said her question originated from the efforts of New Hampshire State Rep. Gerri Cannon, a transgender lawmaker who recently introduced two similar identification bills at the state level to present this third option on birth certificates and driver’s licenses,” CBS News continued.

Cannon believes federal recognition is important because of confusion involving what the “X” means when traveling in other states.

“Right now, especially non-binary people, when they go to one state to another, some state trooper may take a look at a license with an ‘X’ on it and go, ‘What is this?’” Cannon said.

First, let’s state the obvious: There’s not a particularly large body of science that proves identifying as non-binary is in any way biological. While there’s an incredibly small number of individuals who are born with intersex traits, that’s definitely not what this is addressing. Instead, this is mostly about individuals who identify as a sex different from the one they were born — people who claim they’re demigender, third-gender, genderfluid, whatever the case may be. Nobody particularly has to care about this third-gender identification in almost any other aspect of life. When dealing with the government, however, these individuals are either biologically male or female. Putting an X on their driver’s license doesn’t change this very salient fact.

But that isn’t really the point, is it? For the segment of the Democrat field that Sen. Gillibrand finds herself in, the next few months will look increasingly like a leftist political version of “Survivor.”

If all of the aforementioned candidates stay in the race, you’re pretty much guaranteed to see a Biden-Sanders showdown with almost none of these individuals having a shot.

As The Hiill reported Friday, a new poll by the Morning Consult shows that those two men are not only the most popular potential Democratic contenders for 2020 (29 percent of Democrats for Biden, 22 percent for Sanders), but each is backed by the other’s supporters as a second choice. That means they have support that’s both wide and deep.

So, for one of the non-Biden-Sanders candidates to be viable, the others need to get voted off the island. If you want immunity, you need to get yourself noticed, and the best way to do that is conspicuously getting behind something the left will love. Massive taxes! Lettuce! Hippie lettuce! A third gender!

If your pet issue doesn’t catch on, well, the tribe has spoken.

All of this nonsense will either be inconsequential to or deleterious for most of us, mind you. In Gillibrand’s case, I don’t think that individuals who choose to identify as something other than a man or a woman are going to be profoundly validated by seeing an “X” on their driver’s license. In the meantime, we’ll have committed our government to supporting an unscientific-yet-trendy gender movement.

Perhaps most telling is the fact that this idea would have been considered insanely radical just five years ago.

Now we have Gillibrand — arguably the most vanilla of the candidates jockeying to be the not-Biden-not-Sanders torch-bearer — supporting this without a second thought.  In fact, if any Democratic candidates disagreed with this, you can imagine the political firestorm they’d find themselves in. Such is the state of the Democrats in 2019, a party which is more concerned with third genders than the security of the United States.

With all of this posturing, I can’t wait to see what the next few weeks bring.

Kamala Harris livestreaming herself smoking some “joy?” Cory Booker announcing his support for massive kale subsidies, calling it the Very Green New Deal? Beto O’Rourke entering the race and declaring, in a Vermin Supreme-esque move, that he’s going to give everyone a free skateboard? The imagination reels at the possibilities.

Presidential races are unpredictable, of course, and I can’t tell you who the winner will be, but  among the losers will be a) common sense and b) America.

Dems Turn on Each Other After Amazon Debacle, Ocasio-Cortez at the Center of It All


Reported By Benjamin Arie | Published February 16, 2019 at 3:28am

The Democrat party in New York seems to have finally found its arch-enemy: the Democrat party in New York.

In the latest in a series of bad public relations debacles for the liberal party, Democrat officials seem to have formed a circular firing squad of finger-pointing after retail giant Amazon announced they won’t be building a massive headquarters in the Empire state after all. The major employer had previously looked at several locations for a new campus, which would have been expected to bring billions in revenue and tens of thousands of jobs. Amazon, run by liberal billionaire Jeff Bezos, initially indicated that they’d be investing in New York, but it looks like that deal has fallen apart.

“After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens,” declared Amazon representative Jodi Seth, according to CNN.

The company went out of its way to make it known that politicians — many of them liberals — were at the center of their decision to pull out from the deal.

“(A) number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City,” the Amazon statement continued.

One of those politicians is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat socialist congresswoman who seemed to openly brag about … er, keeping 25,000 jobs out of the state she represents.

“Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” the socialist posted on Twitter, as if blocking new jobs were some great accomplishment.

Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, himself a Democrat, expressed much more frustration about the lost deal.

“We competed in and won the most hotly contested national economic development competition in the United States, resulting in at least 25,000-40,000 good paying jobs for our state and nearly $30 billion dollars in new revenue to fund transit improvements, new housing, schools and countless other quality of life improvements,” he pointed out, seeming to distance himself from those who were celebrating Amazon’s reversal.

The liberal governor didn’t call out Ocasio-Cortez by name but certainly seemed to direct some of his ire at the lost opportunity towards her.

“However, a small group politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community — which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City — the state’s economic future and the best interests of the people of this state,” he wrote.

“The New York State Senate has done tremendous damage,” Cuomo blasted. “They should be held accountable for this lost economic opportunity.”

Once again, reality has reared its ugly head. It turns out that individuals and corporations alike are wary of high-tax, expensive states, and are willing to “vote with their feet” if an area isn’t offering them economic or tax advantages.

The idea that people avoid places that are hostile toward business and gravitate to locations that welcome them with pro-growth policies is Economics 101, but then again, politicians like Ocasio-Cortez seem clueless about even these basics.

As the young congresswoman continues to butt heads with fellow Democrats from Nancy Pelosi to Chuck Schumer and now Andrew Cuomo, it will be interesting to watch which way the liberal party slides in the coming months. Far left progressives like Ocasio-Cortez may have the media spotlight right now, but they may be in for a surprise if they keep angering power brokers on their own side of the aisle.

Breaking: Trump Has Found $8 Billion for Border Barrier Construction


Reported By AP Reports | Published February 15, 2019 at 8:40am | Modified February 15, 2019 at 9:20am

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/ap-the-latest-trump-plans-to-spend-8b-on-border-barriers/

President Donald Trump speaks at a rally in El Paso, Texas.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney says Trump will tap various other sources of money beyond the nearly $1.4 billion in a government funding bill that Congress passed. Trump is expected to sign the bill.

Besides the money from Congress, Mulvaney said Friday that Trump plans to spend $600 million in Treasury forfeiture funds and $2.5 billion in Defense Department counterdrug money.

Trump is also tapping about $3.6 billion worth of funds set aside for military construction projects.

Mulvaney says Trump is not tapping disaster relief money designated to help Texas and Puerto Rico following recent devastating hurricanes.

___

12:45 a.m.

Congress has lopsidedly approved a border security compromise that would avert a second painful government shutdown.

But a new confrontation has been ignited. Trump’s plan to bypass lawmakers and declare a national emergency to siphon billions from other federal coffers for a wall on the Mexican boundary is certain to be challenged.

Money in the bill for border barriers, about $1.4 billion, is far below the $5.7 billion Trump insisted he needed and would finance just a quarter of the 200-plus miles he wanted.

The White House said he’d sign the legislation passed Thursday but act unilaterally to get more. That prompted condemnations from Democrats and threats of lawsuits from states and others who might lose federal money or said Trump was abusing his authority.

REPORT: Major U.S. Western Cities Are Becoming Uninhabitable SH*THOLES – Did Yours Make The Cut?


Written by Wes Walker on February 14, 2019

How do you reduce veritable Paradise into a reeking open sewer in such a very short time? You can thank our ‘Progressive’ friends. Their social policy is a gift that keeps on giving. Is there any wonder that companies are thinking twice about holding their conventions in some of the cities that USED to be the go-to destinations?

San Fran’s Homelessness And Opioid Plague Just Cost Them $40M In

Michael Snyder busted open a can of whoop ass in his article describing just how bad the living conditions in major cities on the Left Coast are getting. Link for the original article here.

Here are some key takeaways.

It’s not for a lack of money…

Like twentieth-century Detroit, thriving industry, high median wealth and other natural advantages that made them the envy of the nation, they stubbornly found a way to fail and fall into a serious decline.

Since few places have greater wealth than California, the problem lies in HOW these cities have managed what they have, not in whether they have enough overall wealth to address the problems.

Where Rats Are King

You know that expression about fighting city hall? In some American cities, City Hall can’t even fight their exploding rat population. This is reporting from LA

Officials at Los Angeles’ City Hall are considering ripping all of the building’s carpets up, as rats and fleas are said to be running riot in its halls.

A motion was filed by Council President Herb Wesson on Wednesday to enact the much needed makeover amid a typhus outbreak in the downtown area.

Wesson said a city employee had contracted the deadly bacterial disease at work, and now he’s urging officials to investigate the ‘scope’ of the long-running pest problem at the council building.
Source: DailyMail

Office workers (plural) have even been bitten by rats.

Rats? Fleas? Typhus?

What next, a return of the Plague?

Don’t think it’s a localized problem, either.

The number of homeless has been rising about 20 percent a year, public drug use is seemingly everywhere, and there are mountains of trash all over the place. Needless to say, rats thrive in such an environment

Yikes. Maybe it’s best to give LA a pass then.

What about going a little further North, say, to Oregon?

Terry Balow, an outreach worker with the Salvation Army, has been here for the darker moments of living life under a bridge — anger, mental illness, drug use and human frustration boiling over at times everywhere one looks.

Yet it was a rat infestation and concern about human health that prompted the city of Salem to move the campers out.

“It just grew and grew and got worse,” Balow said. “It’s worst than people can imagine.”

More drugs. More homelessness. More rats. Maybe it’s just a problem on the coasts?

How’s Denver looking?

The Denver City Council has voted unanimously to decriminalize a number of offenses, including defecating in public. Also, urinating in public. Camping on public or private land without permission. Panhandling. And lying across public rights-of-way, such as sidewalks. — Hot Air

On PRIVATE LAND??? Oh, the things they are willing to overlook so as not to ‘complicate’ life for their beloved Illegal aliens.

We’ve already covered San Fran

Where they needed to create a Poop Map to help the public.

New Mayor Of Crap City: ‘More Feces On The Sidewalks Than I’ve Ever Seen’

The story did have a Western emphasis, so there were some obvious omissions, including the city that was awarded the title of Rat Capital last year. What about…

Chicago?

Rat Capital: What Liberal City Tops The List Of Being Infested With Rats?

Funny how that title works in more ways than one, isn’t it?

What. A. Mess.

But an unchecked influx of illegal aliens wouldn’t have anything to do with ANY these trends… right?

Dear Occasional-Cortex: Restaurant Formally CLOSES It’s Last Socialism-Based Location Because Socialism Doesn’t Work


Written by K. Walker on February 14, 2019

Socialism has failed every time it’s been tried — even at Panera.

Back in 2010, Panera Bread CEO, Ron Shaich gave a Tedx Talk in St. Louis and touted his new plan, Panera Cares Cafes that were based on a ‘pay-what-you-can’ model. He said, in many ways, this whole experiment is ultimately a test of humanity. Would people pay for it? Would people come in and value it?

Apparently, the answer is, ‘No’.

ClashDaily has covered the failing of the Panera Cares just 9 years after the launch of the program, and now, the last location in Boston is about to shut its doors.

The company says its final Panera Cares location in Boston will close Friday after six years, and that it is helping employees find jobs at other locations.

Panera opened its first donation-based community café in Clayton, Missouri, in 2010. The model aimed to raise awareness about food insecurity by offering meals at a suggested donation price.

The initial idea was that there would be no prices listed, but would include the full Panera menu. This was adapted to a ‘suggested donation’ amount listed where some patrons would pay more and others would pay less.

Watch Shaich’s Ted Talk that didn’t age well:

One problem was that many patrons felt ‘shamed’ if they were unable to pay the full ‘suggested donation’ amount.

Although the stores were supposed to be self-sufficient, the company revealed that the Panera Cares locations were bringing in 70 to 80 percent of the revenue of the traditional Panera Bread locations, which made them non-viable.

Luxembourg-based investment firm JAB Holding Co, which bought Panera in 2017, said in a statement: ‘Despite our commitment to this mission, it’s become clear that continued operation of the Boston Panera Cares is no longer viable.

‘We’re working with the current bakery-café associates affected by the closure to identify alternate employment opportunities within Panera and Au Bon Pain.’

Shaich stepped down as CEO in January 2018, around the same time that the flagship Panera Cares location closed its doors.

Source: Daily Mail

Those ‘regular customers’ that Shaich spoke of in his Tedx speech now have to find a new haunt.

I’ll bet Panera wishes they had gone with a dollar menu like the other restaurants, eh? Then those customers would still be grabbing a bite to eat at a Panera, and the employees wouldn’t have to go looking for a new job.

Someone should page the new Democrat Darling and tell her that socialism doesn’t work.

Don’t let your kids grow up to be like AOC! Tell them what they need to hear:

Trump Wants Cali To Give Back The $3.5B It WASTED For Its FLOPPED High Speed Rail


Written by K. Walker on February 14, 2019

The Governor of California wants to not build the massive high-speed rail as it was proposed, and keep the money the feds gave towards the project. That’s not how this works.

The high-speed rail system in California was going to be the envy of the nation. It was going to revolutionize how Californians traveled within their state. It was going to be sleek, and cool, and would shuttle passengers from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just 2.5 hours at speeds of 220 mph. The Deep Blue state was going to be a leader in ‘green’ travel, but it’s all falling apart, for the very same reasons that critics had expected it would. It was plagued by delays, soaring costs, lack of transparency, however, was staunchly supported by Democrats and unions — but I repeat myself. Critics are calling it the ‘Bullet Train to Nowhere’.

During the State of the State address, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the long-anticipated high-speed rail project will be cut by a good 80 percent. The reasons? Cost and time. Gov. Newsom says that the project would ‘cost too much and, respectfully, take too long‘ to implement. The cost ballooned from $13 billion to $77 billion or possibly $98.1 billion. (There’s also the issue of it being completely unfeasible due to mountains and fault lines, but Gov. Newsom doesn’t mention that part.)

This announcement of the massive cut comes hot on the heels of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s bungled roll-out of her ‘Green New Deal’, a proposal that she put forward in the House is so insane that it included the elimination of air travel, the internal combustion engine, and cows, along with not-so-veiled proposals for all-out communism. Included in the proposal is a renewed reliance on rail travel as a ‘green’ option to eliminate the need for planes.

Despite the cost and time problems, Governor Newsom is determined to implement some portion of the plan because billions of dollars have already been spent. He also doesn’t want to pay back the federal government the 3.5 billion that was allocated for the 520-mile rail line connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco. The project has been scaled back to just 119-mile line from Merced to Bakersfield.

Watch Cali Gov. Gavin Newsom drop a wet blanket on the $77 billion high-speed rail project:

During the speech, Newsom said:

Abandoning high-speed rail entirely means we will have wasted billions and billions of dollars with nothing but broken promises, partially filled commitments and lawsuits to show for it.

And by the way, I am not interested in sending $3.5 billion in federal funding that was allocated to this project back to Donald Trump.

– Gov. Newsom, State of the State Address, Feb. 12, 2019.

As you can well imagine, President Trump didn’t take kindly to that:

He isn’t wrong.

California taxpayers are out over $10 billion and federal taxpayers are out $3.5 billion with no trains yet running.

The Cali Governor responded to the President’s tweet by calling it ‘fake news’:

Watch the Fox News coverage:


This high-speed rail boondoggle was just another example of the Democrats wasting taxpayer dollars on an unfeasible project that they pushed to fit their ideology. There was no transparency and the costs were allowed to soar. The Obama administration had kicked in $3.5 billion for what was essentially going to be high-speed rail system in one state and nobody batted an eye. The cost rose from $13 billion to nearly $100 billion for a freaking system of rail in just one state! I don’t recall Sen. Nancy Pelosi(D-CA) talking about the ‘waste’ or the morality of the decision.

President Trump wants $5.7 billion for a border wall and everyone is going insane.

Cali needs to give back that cash because the project that they are planning on completing isn’t the one that was proposed.

Democrats need to just fund the wall, too. After all, we’ve been told that ‘elections have consequences’ and we just need to win an election to get our policy positions to move forward. Well, Donald J. Trump is President of the United States and the pillar of his platform was a border wall. Democrats need to just deal with the fact that the election has been over for more than 2 years — and they lost.

#BuildTheWall

Artist Doug Giles has released the latest offering in his MAGA series.

We finally have a Republican leader who’s ready to fight when it’s a ‘hill worth dying on’. He did it for Kavanaugh, he’s doing it again.

Trump is rebelling against the establishment’s demands that he bow the knee to public pressure. He wants that wall.

What better way to capture that ‘try and stop me’ attitude, than with a bonafide American Icon. Like Trump, this painting pulls no punches.

It’s simply called ‘Build The Wall

Jordan Peterson Cuts Trans Individual Down to Size for Defeating Women in Weight Competition


Reported By Jared Harris | Published February 13, 2019 at 10:53am

Imagine for a moment you’re a female weightlifter.

For years, you’ve started every day with a run. You spend grueling hours in the gym and live with the sore muscles as a testament to that. Your diet is just as strict and regimented as your workout routine — every calorie and macronutrient is accounted for, and you force yourself to drink protein shakes between every meal.

Feeling prepared and at the top of your game, you enter a state powerlifting competition. All of your hard work is about to pay off. After watching the women competing, you’re sure that first place is yours.

But after the women’s division winners are announced, a 280-pound man walks up. The judges hand him a gold medal, and then he raises his hands in a victory pose.

You get a second-place ribbon. Better luck next year.

This could have been the story of any woman at January’s United States Powerlifting Association Minnesota State Championship. Despite the countless years of gym time between all of the women there, a man with a single year of training under his belt walked home with not only two women’s gold medals but one of their state records as well.

The man is JayCee Cooper, a 31-year-old amateur weightlifter who describes himself as “queer-n-trans” on his Instagram profile.

His championship victory didn’t sit right with everyone. The conservative clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson even weighed in on Cooper’s “accomplishment,” in his own sarcastic way.

“Such an impressive accomplishment,” Peterson wrote in a Twitter post. “Defeating all those women. And so quickly. And by such a margin. Miracle? Or narcissism of an incomprehensible quality?”

After sweeping the competition at the state championship, Cooper’s powerlifting ambitions were halted by an email from USA Powerlifting — the big dog of American lifting federations. As Cooper revealed in an interview with Compete Network: “The USAPL will not allow me to compete because I am a transfeminine person. And, according to them, it confers some sort of anatomical advantage, even though I’m not sure where they’re getting that ‘science.’”

Despite Cooper’s apparent lack of understanding about the fundamentals of biology, science is pretty clear on the subject of sex differences and physical ability. A Duke University study found that even Olympian Tori Bowie’s lifetime best 100-meter time (less than 11 seconds — an impressive speed) was shattered by men and boys over 15,000 times in a single year. And this is just for a 100-meter dash. Strength competitions will obviously have just as large of a disparity, if not a bigger one.

In the Compete Network interview, Cooper acknowledged he’s only been seriously into weight training for about a year. It’s a good bet the women he defeated at the competition have been training much, much longer than that.

Unfortunately for female athletes, it appears as though Cooper’s victory is emblematic of the unfair advantage they may often face in the future.

And leftists, obsessed with transgender causes,” are abandoning the very women they claim to be supporting.
