Pro-Trump Event Gets Rained Out. President Goes Above and Beyond for Those Who Came


Reported By Bryan Chai | August 12, 2018 at 1:54pm

Mother Nature can be a fickle mistress.

Even the best-laid plans are at the mercy of everyday elements like wind and rain.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump and his administration were preparing to welcome approximately 180 bikers, consisting of veterans, police officers and members of the “Bikers For Trump” New Jersey chapter for a meet and greet event.

The event was set to take place at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where Trump is currently on a “working vacation.”

Unsurprisingly, it’s a gorgeous golf club.

Well, it’s normally gorgeous — not so much when there’s a torrential downpour.

Unfortunately for all of the event’s many attendees, the event was rained out.

Now, nobody would’ve blamed the president for canceling or rescheduling the event to try and avoid the rainfall. In fact, with the weather expected to clear up, so he could’ve postponed it for later in the day.

Instead, Trump went above and beyond for his supporters in a way that even his most hardened detractors would struggle to nitpick.

Trump’s certainly not above reproach, but nobody will ever critique him for not caring deeply for his most die-hard supporters.

Without hesitating, Trump invited everyone inside his luxurious golf club which is a pretty big improvement from a simple outdoors photo-op.

Trump greeted many of the guests personally, shook hands, signed autographs and took photos.

It all seemed like controlled chaos in the ballroom at his golf club, which is fitting, considering that’s an apt description for the whirlwind first half of his presidential term.

Eventually, the event moved outside when the weather cleared up a bit, and Trump provided even more photo-ops despite his already generous gesture to move everyone inside.

Ocasio-Cortez Sounds Like Britney Spears When Explaining How The U.S. Will Pay For Her Socialist Dreams


Written By: K. Walker | ClashDaily Associate Editor

Published on August 8, 2018

URL of the original posting site: https://clashdaily.com/2018/08/ocasio-cortez-sounds-like-britney-spears-when-explaining-how-the-u-s-will-pay-for-her-socialist-dreams/

The new Democrat Darling, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just proved it — kids say the darnedest things. Ok, so she’s not a kid, she’s a 28-year old bartender. But she sounds like a kid. This chick is really something else.

Ocasio-Cortez appeared on the Pod Save America podcast with Jon Lovett, the former speechwriter for both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The ‘Democratic-Socialist’ star candidate on the Left has been panned by those on the right as well as some of her centrist Democrat colleagues for not having a plan to pay for her social spending. Even when she does sort-of suggest ways of increasing government revenue, through increased taxation, she still falls trillions of dollars short on her budgetary goals.

Watch this exchange with Trevor Noah where she confuses the entire military budget with an increase in funding:

If that were the case, there wouldn’t be a Jon Lovett, a Pod Save America or an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to give us this load of ignorance.

Jon Lovett asked Cortez the question everyone wants an answer to — how does she plan to finance her multi-trillion dollar socialist dreams? But first — he provides her with an answer.

Here’s Lovett’s ‘question’:

We don’t talk about what defense costs; we’re about to hit a trillion dollars in debt because of the corporate tax cuts; yet when we talk about pre-K, healthcare, college, suddenly it’s unrealistic because of the cost. And it’s not just bad faith Republicans that make that argument; you hear it from Democrats as well. What’s your response to that?

And Cortez responds, ‘Well, I think it’s that same exact thing.

She then rambles on and on without answering the question at all.

It’s that we… you know they say, ‘How are you going to pay for it?’ as though they haven’t used those same ways to pay for unlimited wars, to pay for trillion dollar tax cuts and tax cut extensions. They use these mechanisms to pay for these things all the time.

Sorry, which ways and which mechanisms? Taxation? She doesn’t enumerate them. Let’s assume that as a Democratic Socialist she means wealth redistribution.

Honey, that’s called ‘stealing’.

Why should the ‘makers’ have their money given to the ‘takers’?

For example, should a plumber that has worked hard to create his business, which now employs 4 people, be taxed at a higher rate due to his success so that some activist can go tuition-free to college to get a ‘Gender Studies’ degree?

Ocasio-Cortez would say, ‘Yes!’ because that’s investing in ‘human capital’.

They only want to know — it just seems like their pockets are empty when we’re talking about education and investing in human capital in the United States: education, healthcare, housing, um, and investing in the middle class. All of a sudden, there’s nothing left. All of a sudden the wealthiest nation in the world, we’re just totally scarce. We have complete scarcity when it comes to the things that are the most important.

Scarcity? What the heck is she talking about?

Maybe she should go visit the dream society of fellow Democratic Socialist, Bernie Sanders — the failing country of Venezuela — to illustrate the concept of scarcity.

For me, I think it belies a lack of moral priority. And it’s unfortunate.

Really, we’re going to bring morality into it? It’s not immoral to be self-sufficient and not want a great big Nanny State telling you how to live your life.

The role of government isn’t to give you things that you want. Perhaps she needs to brush up on her reading of the Federalist Papers.

And of course, she says it’s not a ‘left/right thing’ it’s a ‘human’ thing.

I think that — but I also think a lot of these folks, especially those perhaps on the Democratic side, perhaps they don’t even see it, you know? I don’t know. I don’t know if that’s a generous interpretation or not, but I legitimately think that they start kind of buying into conservative talking points. They get dragged into their court all the time. And I think it is because there’s this really myopic, and also, just misunderstanding of politics as this flat 2-dimensional left/right thing. And so they always feel like, “Okay, the Right says this thing. We have to respond to it.” And that’s why they’re winning. That’s why they’ve won for the last ten years, because they’ve dragged us onto their court. And we refuse to have our own strong message to force them to play defense on.

So, in that word salad, did she mention once how she’s going to pay for free college tuition for everyone? Tuition at U.S. universities and colleges runs $70 billion per year.

Did she mention the cost of Medicare for all? It’s been estimated that it would cost Americans an additional 32.6 trillion dollars over 10 years. 

How about housing as a ‘human right’? How much could that possibly cost?

Nope, I didn’t hear any mention of how those would be paid for.

It’s not a matter of ‘reprioritizing’.

She’d have to gut funding and what would she cut exactly? She’s the advocate for big, bloated government.

Watch the unbelievable interview:

Yes, ladies and gents, this is what the Democrats are excited about. All I can say is — bring on the midterms and then 2020! Let this girl keep talking and be the face of the Democratic Party, and we’ll do just fine.

Antifa Tinkerpots Dont Want Their Pics Shared So Lets Share Them Far-n-Wide


They’re brave when they can lurk in a crowd, chuck bricks torch buildings and wear a nifty black mask. But let their faces see the light of day, and they’re revealed as the sniveling cowards they are.

Too bad, little tinkerpots, police don’t ask your permission to take a mug shot. You wanted to be the center of attention? Congrats! Now you are. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes!

Here is your clown-car load of ‘activists’ that got rounded up over the weekend. This particular batch is from — that celebrated fountainhead of free speech — Berkley. Sad, I know. But it’s true. Berkley was actually the hotbed of free speech… once. Now it’s a hotbed of pseudo-fascistic censorship.

They crashed a ‘no Marxism at Berkeley’ rally (run by conservatives, obviously), and these dopey goons came in and broke up the party.

Before the rally, the city issued broad rules prohibiting “weapons” in the area and “anything … that can be used for a ‘riot’.” Officials also banned protesters from wearing masks. As usual, though, the Antifa failed to follow these rules, and thus, many of them were arrested.

Let’s meet the gang, so to speak.

  • Jason Wallach, 41-year-old male from Oakland, charged with possession of a banned weapon.
  • Kate Brenner, 69-year-old female from Oakland, charged with possession of a banned weapon.
  • Kristen Edith Koster, 50-year-old female from Berkeley, charged with possession of a dangerous weapon.
  • Maria Lewis, 29-year-old female from Emeryville, charged with carrying a banned weapon and working with others to commit a crime.
  • Thomas Parker, 22-year-old male from Berkeley, charged with working with others to commit a crime
  • Caitlin Boyle, 27-year-old female from Oakland, charged with working with others to commit a crime.
  • Blake Griffith, 29-year-old male from Oakland, charged with vandalism.
  • Sarena Perez, 39-year-old female from Oakland, charged with possession of a banned weapon.
  • David Chou, 26-year-old male from Santa Cruz, charged with possession of a banned weapon and working with others to commit a crime.
  • Freddy Martinez, 31-year-old male from Berkeley, charged with battery.
  • Ericka Sokolower-Shain, 28-year-old female from Berkeley, charged with possession of a banned weapon.
  • Javier Cruz-O’Connell, 22-year-old male from Berkeley, charged with possession of a banned weapon.
  • Jamie Hill, 30-year-old female from Emeryville, charged with possession of a banned weapon.
  • Bella Podolsky, 27-year-old female from San Francisco, charged with possession of a banned weapon.
  • Andres Gonzalez, 35-year-old male from Oakland, charged with five counts of carrying a banned weapon.
  • Jeffrey Garten, 28-year-old male, from Oakland, charged with a single count of carrying a banned weapon.

Maybe, if you don’t want the world to know you’re an idiot… you could make a decision not to hang out with morons wearing masks and committing felonies.

You could still BE an idiot, but the world wouldn’t know it.

Dear CNN: Antifa Promises ‘Bullets’ For Political Rivals – Is That ‘News?’


About that ‘politically divisive’ discourse? It was impossible to ignore this enormous pro-violence banner. Unless you were willfully blind to it.

There was a GREAT BIG BANNER telling all the world what their true feelings are. The brick-chucking, bike-lock-swinging punks unveiled a new slogan. In case you needed help figuring out who has the real violent intent, here.

Watch:

Don’t worry. Leftist reporters were on the scene. Here’s The Daily Beast’s coverage. They saw the sign and even included video with it in their article

What was their big takeaway? Was the incitement to murder banner any big deal?

If their photo essay is any clue, not at all.


Scott seemed not to think the violent rhetoric was a big deal.

Let’s have another look:

Here’s the kind of police presence that needs to be on hand whenever Antifa comes to the party.

At least some credit goes to Garrett Haake from MSNBC for being honest about what he saw:

At least he acknowledged the sign, even if the photo was, as it were, ‘submitted without comment’.

So, what does the political climate look like today? People have been harassed or assaulted. Journalists and cops were roughed up by the leftist rioters.

We’ve even seen assassination attempts. Scalise, you know about. Did you hear reporting about the mass shooting they disrupted a few months ago? One would-be gunman faces charges for plans to hit up a Trump Rally and murder the President.

All of this by political activists who think they’re doing society a favor in the process.

When will the Media(D) stop running interference for their ideological buddies, and start calling them out for their bad behavior? What possible excuse might the Media(D) have for having nothing critical to say about one American threatening to murder another?
