The New ‘TRUMP ON SAFARI’ Painting Is HILARIOUS!


Written by Wes Walker on July 22, 2019

We all know Trump’s sons like bringing home the big game, but what about their dad? He does a DIFFERENT kind of hunting.

He’s not out chasing Cape Buffalo in Africa or climbing up and down mountains chasing down bear in Alaska like they might be.

The President has got a much different game in his sights than most safaris. Sure, he has been known to take down the occasional RINO, but these days, he’s mostly been chasing down an invasive species.

The American Braying Jackass. And with Trump, its ALWAYS open season on these critters.

Our resident artist Doug Giles has added yet another fine painting to his MAGA-themed collection.

This one is called simply: Trump On Safari

DEAR CNN: Border Deaths Are DOWN In Trump’s First 2yrs – Is That ‘News?’


Written by Wes Walker on July 22, 2019

To hear AOC and her fraud squad tell the tale, ICE is practically throwing babies to the wolves. But what does the EVIDENCE say? Short answer — it says that they’re lying. All that weeping and finger-pointing laying the blood of children at the feet of Trump and his administration was a complete fraud.

If they were being honest, they would be thanking Trump for REDUCING deaths at the border. And considering how Democrats are working their damnedest to throw these children to the Coyotes, that’s a REALLY impressive statistic.

A tragic photograph of the bodies of Oscar Alberto Martínez and his 23-month-old daughter, Angie Valeria, who drowned attempting to cross the Rio Grande River from Mexico into Texas, renewed outrage about the border crisis. Politicians expressed their indignation at the image while, predictably, blaming the Trump administration.

[Harris, O’Rourke and Booker denounced Trump’s ‘inhumane’ and ‘immoral’ policies.]

…Former Vice President Joe Biden also tweeted about the tragic photo: “This image is gut-wrenching. The cruelty we’re seeing at our border is unconscionable. History will judge how we respond to the Trump Administration’s treatment of immigrant families & children — we can’t be silent. This isn’t who we are. This is not America.”

Instead of sharpening their pointing fingers, these Democratic hopefuls should have been pulling up statistics. If Trump’s a moral monster, what do you call the LAST administration? (Which, as we recall, had one Joe Biden working in the White House.)

But the reality is that deaths at the U.S.-Mexico border decreased after Donald Trump became president, according to data from the United States Border Patrol. During the 2017 and 2018 fiscal years they averaged 291 per year, down from 372 during the Obama/Biden administration and 382 under Bush.

Of course, that’s only PART of the story, isn’t it? Border Patrol agents are busy SAVING lives of people who try to cross a river and a desert through hostile terrain that happens to cross through criminal territory.

Not only do these hazards cost innocent lives, leaving a staggering number of women and girls to be exploited by predatory men, but the criminal cartels profit handsomely from these actions. First, by charging top dollar to cross through their territory on the way to America, second by assisting them over the border, which can include the use of a child carried over the border for amnesty purposes. (Something like one-in-three children coming over the border are non-relatives trafficked for this purpose.)

And with all that manpower (yes, we said MANPOWER) being spent on rescuing, feeding, securing and caring these thousands of illegals swarming over the border, there is ANOTHER consequence the Liberals have not been honest about.

When’s the last time you’ve heard any Democrat mention THIS:

Diverting border security resources to address the “humanitarian need” of migrants is leading to record-high levels of illicit drug smuggling across the U.S.-Mexico border, said James W. Carroll, director of the U.S. Office of Drug Control Policy, in a Thursday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

Carroll said, “I couldn’t tell you how bad this is. Seizures are down, and it’s not because there are less drugs coming in. It’s because their attention has to be diverted because of the humanitarian need, but what that means is more drugs are coming in than ever before.”

…Using federal resources meant for border security on “humanitarian” endeavors compromises the government’s ability to interdict drug smuggling, said Carroll. “That’s what these men and women want to do. They want to protect their families and their friends from these poisons coming in. That’s what we need to let them do. Fix the immigration system. Let them get back to protecting the U.S., and let us get back to the issue of saving lives.”
Source: Breitbart

Can anyone blame Dan Crenshaw for wondering their track record on policy says about the Democrats’ REAL objectives with respect to the borders?

Great point.

Then again, Democrats were the ones who said their political future would rise or fall on this issue, remember?

“The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” the memo read.

It finished, “If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond.”
Source: Fox

Dress it up in whatever pretty little bow you like, it doesn’t change the facts. This issue isn’t about the Left’s COMPASSION. They use all the right buzzwords as though it was, but it isn’t. They said itself in that leaked memo — this is about political power, and who gets to wield it.

It is literally nothing any more noble than that ugly brute fact.

THAT is why they don’t acknowledge any history concerning this issue that predates January of 2017. Anything that undercuts the narrative doesn’t matter and is airbrushed out of history. If they showed the big picture in its proper context, the public might see that — however bad Pelosi’s Democrats are making the border situation — Trump’s administration is doing a pretty good job with the bad situation they were handed.

Deaths are down. That’s a GOOD thing, no matter HOW much you hate Trump. Now if we can just do something stop the smugglers from waltzing across our border with drugs, guns, and Lord knows what else… and redirect asylum claimants to using legal crossings where they won’t be exploited and raped by cartels, we’ll be golden.

You know, if Congress doesn’t have anything BETTER to do with its time.

We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.

But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:

“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.

Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!

Congressional Testimony: Google Gave Hillary Millions Of Votes, 15 Million More At Risk in 2020 (Video)


Written by Wes Walker on July 19, 2019

“In 2020, you can bet that all of these companies are going to go all out, and the methods they are using are invisible, they’re subliminal, they are more powerful than most any effects I’ve ever seen in behavioral sciences … almost 40 years.”

In 2020 15 Million votes are at risk, he tells us. And how much time and energy did we spend looking into a few Russian FaceBook ads? Do they not realize the dangerous game they’re embarked in?

Remember that ‘civil war’ article from Silicon Valley about FORCING the Rest of America to flip Blue like they did California? Should we take them seriously now? — Leftists Want A ‘New Civil War’ – This Post Is Disturbing

At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, “Google and Censorship through Search Engines,” Dr. Robert Epstein, who researches the impact of Google, informed the hearing that “upwards of 15 million votes” were in jeopardy in the 2020 election. During his testimony, Epstein told Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) that in 2016, Google gave at least 2.6 million votes to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, “through bias and search results.” He stressed that was the lowest number.

When questioned further by Cruz, Epstein gave a more concise answer: “The range is between 2.6 and 10.4 million votes depending on how aggressive they were in using the techniques that I’ve been studying, such as the search engine manipulation effect, the search suggestion effect, the answer bot effect, and a number of others. They control these and no one can counteract them. These are not competitive. These are tools that they have at their disposal exclusively.”

Cruz was shocked by this, responding, “If any headline comes out of this hearing, that should be it.”

Epstein further warned, “In 2020, you can bet that all of these companies are going to go all out, and the methods they are using are invisible, they’re subliminal, they are more powerful than most any effects I’ve ever seen in behavioral sciences and I’ve been in behavioral sciences for almost 40 years.”

This comes hard on the heels of other questions by Peter Thiel — also a Tech Billionaire — about whether Google has been infiltrated and or compromised by any corrupting government influence from China.

Why is this story so very dangerous? If an outsider — say Russia — has been influencing our electoral process, the solution is to tighten safeguards.

But Google is tilting election results — as they seem to have been in Ireland’s Abortion referendum — that is deliberate disenfranchisement. Manipulating people to see and hear only the information ‘gatekeepers’ want them to see and hear to manipulate their decisions and ultimately, choices.

We’re talking about an Orwellian level of control that the citizen isn’t even aware is being exercised on his or her will. — We will MAKE you make the ‘right’ choice.

How? With, as Epstein called it, invisible, subliminal methods and tools described by a forty-year veteran in Behavioral Sciences as ‘more powerful’ than any he’s ever seen.

Remember Ireland’s Abortion vote?

In revelations made by pro-transparency website Project Veritas, YouTube “blacklisted” a large number of videos on its platform in advance of the referendum while also interfering with search results. YouTube is wholly owned by Google. When voters searched for specific terms on YouTube, the results of their searches were manually altered by Google, thus assuring that the videos selected by Google reach the top of the search results.

Among the searches affected by interference from Google were “irish catholic,” unborn life,” and “abortion is wrong.” The interference in search results came within one week of the referendum, which allowed abortion nationwide. Sources leaked the news to Project Veritas, which was later corroborated by the Breitbart news organization. Some observers have noted that there may be similar manipulation of Google search results with regard to searches related to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and her use of a non-classified internet server for her top-secret communications during her stint in the Obama administration.

If a hostile country tries to rig an election, we could make structural changes, or even re-do the vote, if necessary.

But if the will of the people itself is being manipulated and corrupted through suppression and the filtering of information gatekeepers don’t want you to see, and promotion of the views you are ‘supposed’ to take, that corrupts the ‘free and fair’ election itself.

Free and fair elections are the pressure valve that makes the people believe their voices are being heard. A regularly-scheduled public uprising against our leaders followed by a smooth transition of power. It’s completely bloodless and as fair as we can make it with those who lose knowing there’s another scheduled uprising not far away in which their team has a shot.

If you manipulate this process so that the public loses faith in their voice being heard… the remaining recourse is a lot more grisly.

Silicon Valley should be really careful about throwing around the words ‘Civil War’ — this is the kind of mischief that could actually start one.

We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.

But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:

“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.

San Antonio Bans Chick-Fil-A Over Charitable Donations


Written By | Tiffany Layne |

#TeamKJ, #KevinJackson, #theblacksphere

Americans love Chick-Fil-A. And it’s not just the delicious nuggets or waffle fries. People love the values clearly displayed in every single restaurant.

In fact, for the fourth consecutive year, Chick-Fil-A ranked number one. And it just doesn’t sit well with gay people. Although I have a feeling they secretly eat Chick-Fil-A, too.

As Fox explains:

For the fourth year in a row, the fast-food chain topped the American Customer Satisfaction Index for limited-service restaurant chains. The index is based on results from nearly 23,000 consumers.

Chick-fil-A scored an 86 on the ASCI’s 100-point scale, which is down one point from last year, Forbes reports. For comparison, McDonald’s scored a 69, Burger King a 76 and KFC a 78. Taco Bell scored a 75.

Meanwhile, in regard to pizza places, Pizza Hut and Papa John’s both scored 80 points, with Domino’s at 79 and Little Caesars at just 77.

In a statement to Fox News, Chick-fil-A said, “We are honored by the ranking and grateful to our customers for choosing Chick-fil-A, it’s truly our pleasure to serve them. Our commitment to serving great food with gracious hospitality started more than 50 years ago with our founder’s first restaurant. Today, the more than 145,000 individuals who represent the brand in 2,400 restaurants make honors like this possible by continuing his commitment to service.”

Chick-fil-A’s high ranking can be attributed to several factors, including the company’s famous customer service training. Business Insider reports that the restaurant was named America’s most polite chain in QSR Magazine’s annual report.

This isn’t the only piece of good news for Chick-fil-A. The chain is expected to become the third bestseller fast-food chain in America, Fox 5 reports. Further, it’s expected to jump past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s, based on a study conducted by Kalinowski Equity Research. Making this an even more impressive feat is the fact that Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays, while almost all of its competition is open seven days a week.

With Ratings like this, why would anyone ban the chicken chain?

Apparently, Chick-Fil-A gives too much to all the wrong people. At least according to one city in Texas.

The Lone Star State is typically a hot bed of conservatism. However, a few pockets of liberalism do exist. And San Antonio is among them. And according to San Antonio officials, Chick-Fil-A is way too Christian to be in the airport.

As Fox tell us:

In March, the San Antonio City Council voted to ban the popular chicken fast food restaurant from the airport, citing Chick-fil-A’s charitable giving to organizations like the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Councilman Roberto Trevino led the charge accusing Chick-fil-A of having a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”

“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion,” Trevino said of the vote, News 4 San Antonio reported. “Everyone has a place here and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport.”

Let’s dissect this for a moment.

The Salvation Army serves people from all walk of life. From their own website, their mission is to help with adult rehabilitation, veterans service, assistance for the elderly, prison ministries, combating human trafficking, and advocating assistance for missing persons.

Further, Salvation Army helps children with Christmas programs, summer camps, hunger relief, and homelessness. The latter of which is a domestic problem often ignored. Additionally, Salvation Army provided disaster relief. They feed and clothe people after hurricanes, fires, and other disasters that leave families dislocated without any resources.

As for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, they seek to inspire student athletes and coaches around the world with the values of integrity, serving, teamwork, and excellence. Their non-denominational approach seeks to “make disciples through our methods of engaging, equipping and empowering coaches and athletes to know and grow in Christ and lead others to do the same.”

So, why would it be terrible for a fast food chain to fund such activities?

According to San Antonio officials, it’s unfair to the LGBTQ community to inspire wholesome values. Things like honesty and integrity should be left on the side of the road to die.

Texas Fights Back

Like I said, Texas is a hotbed of conservatism. Thus, these actions “did not go gentle into that good night.” Instead,  Chick-Fil-A  decided to “rage against the dying of the light.”

Fox explains:

The religious liberty law firm that just won the Bladensburg Peace Cross case at the Supreme Court believes this decision by the local government is not only wrong but illegal.

“If San Antonio city officials are proud of their decision to ban Chick-fil-A from the city’s airport, why do they insist on hiding from the public its records about the decision?” Keisha Russell, First Liberty Institute counsel, said in a statement.  “The public deserves to know just how deeply the religious animosity runs within San Antonio’s city government.”

Banning Chick-fil-A for its supposed anti-LGBTQ stance has become a trend for liberal cities and college campuses, or at least attempts to do so, but reps for the company told Fox News “the 140,000 people who serve customers in our restaurants on a daily basis represent and embrace all people, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity,” they continued. “Our intent is to have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.”

The company said it welcomes a dialogue with the city council.

“It’s unfortunate that mischaracterizations of our brand have led to decisions like this,” a rep for Chick-fil-A said. “The sole focus of the Chick-fil-A Foundation is to support causes focused on youth and education. We are proud of the positive impact we are making in communities across America and have been transparent about our giving on our web site.”

And Texas Governor Greg Abbot couldn’t agree more.

Last month, his new bill, aptly title “Save Chick-Fil-A” passed into law. Now, it is illegal to take adverse action against a person or business based on their charitable contributions. Once again, we’re forced to legislate something that should be common sense. But thanks to leftists, we have to spell it out. It’s not ok to punish Chick-Fil-A for their philanthropy.

Sadly, I bet leftists would line up for chicken sandwiches all day long if Chick-Fil-A ditched their values and started putting voodoo dolls wearing rainbow t-shirts in their kids meals.

The Ann Coulter Letter: When the MSM Say Someone Is in Prison for a Minor Drug Crime, They’re Always Lying


Commentary Ann Coulter | Posted: Jul 17, 2019 3:08 PM

When the MSM Say Someone Is in Prison for a Minor Drug Crime, They’re Always Lying

Source: JANIFEST/iStock/Getty Images Plus

 
 Over the weekend, NBC News investigative reporter Leigh Ann Caldwell appeared on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC” to tell the story of Bill Underwood, loving parent and prison mentor, who has already spent nearly 30 years in prison for a nonviolent drug crime.
 
 Caldwell reported:
 
 “William Underwood, now 65 years old, was sentenced to life in prison without parole for a nonviolent drug-related crime. It was his first felony, but in the middle of the tough-on-crime era, the judge showed no leniency. With no hope of ever walking free again, Underwood has made the best of his time in prison, mentoring others and staying devoted to his children and grandchildren, as (his daughter) Ebony fights for his release.”
 
 Another black body in prison for mere possession of a joint!
 
 Actually, no one is in prison anywhere for possession of a joint, except in the pea-brain fantasies of chubby college coeds everywhere. We don’t have the prison space.
 
 NBC’s Caldwell interviewed Underwood, noting how “for 30 years from inside prison walls, he still tried to be a father first.” The poor man concurred, saying, “That’s all I was ever taught, you know? Children first, first, foremost. That’s what I try to emulate.”
 
 Can it be long before Ivanka pops up, lobbying for his release?
 
Despite what I’m sure was an exhaustive investigation, I was suspicious of Caldwell’s characterization of Underwood’s crime. My rule is: If you’re not telling me why someone was sentenced to life in prison, there’s probably a reason you’re not telling me.
 
 All we got from Caldwell was: Here’s this great father behind bars; He just got caught up in something, we’re really not sure what it was — and here’s his daughter, Ebony, to tell us what a terrific father he is.

Considering that she’s arguing for Underwood’s immediate release into the general public, it seems odd that Caldwell doesn’t know what he’s in prison for, nor does she have the slightest interest in finding out.
 
 Maybe at NBC they don’t have access to the internet. But I do! I spent a full 60 seconds doing a Nexis search on William Underwood.
 
 Here are some excerpts from a Newsday article on Underwood’s conviction, dated Jan. 10, 1990:
 
 “A rock band manager was convicted yesterday as the head of a vicious Harlem drug gang that prosecutors said carried out six murders, including the controversial slaying of a witness in 1983.”
 
 Caldwell didn’t bother to mention Underwood’s SIX MURDERS?

NBC: We don’t have room for everything. These stories are only so long.
 
 “William Underwood, 36, faces up to life in prison without parole for his conviction in U.S. District Court in Manhattan on charges of racketeering and operating a continuing criminal enterprise — the so-called federal narcotics ‘kingpin’ law.”
 
 It’s weird that Caldwell never managed to turn up the fact that he was convicted of being the kingpin of a drug empire, distributing heroin throughout Harlem in the 1980s. “Yes, your honor, I was convicted of operating a CONTINUING CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE — but it’s my first offense.”
 
 “A federal jury found him guilty of heading the murderous and now-broken Vigilantes drug gang … known for extraordinary violence. All told, police say, it may have killed as many as 23 people.”
 
 I feel like Caldwell may not have gone the extra mile in researching this story.
 
 The evidence against Underwood included the testimony of 50 witnesses, undercover video-recordings and confessions of Vigilante gang members — which is especially impressive, considering that he ordered the murder of witnesses preparing to testify against him. (I guess he couldn’t kill all 50.) In addition to killing witnesses, Underwood’s outfit killed customers, members of rival drug gangs and innocent passersby.
 
 In a 1988 article titled, “Brutal Drug Gangs Wage War of Terror in Upper Manhattan,” The New York Times reported that Underwood’s heroin operation was “considered by law-enforcement experts to be the most dangerous drug gang in Harlem.” All told, the gangs were “believed to be responsible for as many as 523 slayings in upper Manhattan in the last five years.”
 
 That’s lots of black bodies.
 
 Having completely lied about these crimes – deliberately withholding this information is lying — NBC then brought out Sen. Cory Booker as the lonely voice of sanity in the Kafka-esque nightmare that is Underwood’s life.
 
 Booker, who is running for president, has introduced legislation that would allow anyone in prison for more than 10 years, such as Underwood, to petition for release — thus, requiring the state to prove its case all over again.
 
 But sadly, Caldwell said, “Booker has an uphill battle on passing the bill.”
 
 She asked Booker the question on everyone’s mind: “If you are president and this legislation has not passed before then, would you offer clemency to someone like William Underwood?”
 
 Booker responded: “Hell yes, hell yes. I told you, it should disturb all of us that there are people like Mr. Underwood in prison.”
 
 What’s disturbs all of us is that this guy is running for president and clearly — we hope! — hasn’t looked into Underwood’s case.
 
 This is the left’s famous two-step on criminal punishment:
 
 1. Oppose the death penalty on the grounds that “life in prison without possibility of parole” is just as good;
 
 2. Wait a few years for all the witnesses to die or move away, and then demand the convict’s release on the basis of absolutely no information about his crime.
 
 William Underwood was tried and convicted of being the kingpin of a bloody drug empire that terrorized Harlem throughout the 1980s. Thanks to federal prosecutions wrapping up operations like Underwood’s, now there are coffee shops, restaurants and multi-million-dollar brownstones in Harlem.
 
 But if you’re an investigative reporter for NBC or a Democratic presidential candidate and don’t check the facts, his case goes in the “life imprisonment for a single joint” file.
 
 Just remember: Whenever you read about a guy in prison for a “nonviolent drug-related crime,” they’re lying.
