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.

Police Report Is Game-Changer in Case of Gay, Black Actor Attacked by ‘Trump Supporters’


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | January 30, 2019 at 9:29am

When gay black actor Jussie Smollett said he was attacked by white men who yelled some stuff about “MAGA,” it didn’t take long for the liberal rage machine to mobilize.

“The star of the tv show ‘Empire,’ Jussie Smollett, was attacked by two assailants early Monday morning in Downtown Chicago according to Chicago Police Department Spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi,” CNN reported.

“Smollett, 36, was walking on the 300 block of E. North Lower Water Street when two men approached him and ‘gained his attention by yelling out racial and homophobic slurs towards him,’ Guglielmi says in a statement.

“Two unknown offenders — it is unknown if they were male or female — then attacked Smollett, hitting him in the face and then poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

“At some point during the scuffle, one of the offenders wrapped a rope around the victim’s neck and then both offenders fled the scene, the statement reads.”

Smollett took himself to Northwestern Hospital, where the incident was reported to police, according to CBS Chicago.

There was plenty of condemnation to go around, particularly after TMZ reported that the attackers had shouted “this is MAGA country.” Two of the outraged included black Democratic senators, who just by chance, happen to either be running for president or widely expected to be running for president.

There was one problem with this “modern-day lynching” narrative: None of that “MAGA country” stuff was originally mentioned to police and they’re having trouble corroborating the fact that the attack even happened.

“According to the victim, the offenders’ faces were concealed,” a police spokesman said, according to Reason. “We have no record indicating that (they shouted ‘MAGA’), we only have record of them shouting racial and homophobic slurs at him.”

A statement from Chicago Police confirmed that, Reason reported.

“We have no record of the ‘MAGA Country’ comment,” the statement said, according to Reason. “We have racial and homophobic comments documented.”

CNN reported that when police heard about the accusation and called the actor, he “relayed it to detectives in a supplemental interview.”

But then again, there’s some doubt as to whether the attack even happened.

In an area that has a “very high density” of surveillance cameras, according to the police spokesman’s statement, there is not a single image of an attack like the one Smollett described.

“A Chicago police spokesperson tells CNN that investigators canvassed the neighborhood where the reported attack occurred on actor Jussie Smollett and have found no still images or video from security cameras of the incident,” CNN reported.

“The only image of Smollett police obtained from security cameras was inside Subway Sandwich shop near the location of the reported crime, the actor was standing alone.”

For all I know, Smollett really was attacked by bigots who shouted the phrase “MAGA country,” and ambitious, Democratic politicians who are calling this a “a modern-day lynching” are absolutely justified. But here’s the thing — I’m going to wait to see whether or not that’s the case, as everyone else should have.

It hasn’t even been a fortnight since the Covington Catholic incident, and the lesson we were should have taken away from that “teachable moment” — be careful dealing with stories that confirm your cultural narrative — has been lost.

No fewer than two senators with eyes on the 2020 Democratic nomination have taken this accusation as gospel because they can use it as an illustration of supposed Trump-fueled hate coursing through the country, even though no arrests have been made and the evidence is scanty. If this turns out to be a hoax, Sens. Booker and Harris own this, as do the legion of liberals who tweeted this out without waiting for a fuller investigation.

Even if this turns out to be true, what they did was supremely irresponsible. That these two individuals are in the Senate is bad enough. Just imagine one of them in the White House, backed by a legion of people who think Donald Trump supporters are irresponsible bigots, but are willing to blame white Donald Trump supporters for a hate crime without any charges or even direct physical evidence. It will make the Obama years look like pure reason.

Home Depot Co-Founder Blasts Socialism, Quietly Calls Out Ocasio-Cortez in Explosive Interview


Reported By Karista Baldwin | January 27, 2019 at 10:32am

The co-founder of The Home Depot slammed supporters of socialism during a Friday interview on Fox News. Bernard Marcus, The Home Depot co-founder, talked to Fox News host Neil Cavuto about the failure of socialism in Venezuela and Cuba. Marcus said socialism has devastated those countries and compared their present state to what they were like before socialist rule. He specifically called Cuba a “perfect example of socialism gone wrong.”

“They took a great country. They put it right down the drain in every way possible,” Marcus said about Cuba.

“People are starving to death. Medical (care) is not available for them. And we have a group of people in Washington today, new representatives especially, that look at socialism as the way to go,” he said. “And if you don’t think that’s dangerous, I do.”

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one such self-proclaimed “socialist Democrat.” Ocasio-Cortez is one of the leading backers of the Green New Deal, which calls for some of the largest government expansion in decades.

Marcus told Cavuto that he believed the growing support for socialism among young Americans “comes right out of the universities.”

“You see students graduating today and a very high percentage … almost 50 percent of students coming out of universities today believe that socialism is the answer,” Marcus said.

One recent survey found that that 51 percent of American millennials would rather live under socialist or communist rule than in a capitalist country. A study by Campus Reform found that Ocasio-Cortez’s alma mater, Boston University, overwhelmingly supported Democratic causes. The study found that of the donations given by Boston University faculty in 2017-2018, 97 percent were to Democrat politicians and Democrat organizations. And support for socialism springs from these disproportionately left-leaning schools.

“That’s frightening to me because the things that made this country great, that created the wealth of this country — and I mean the wealth of every single person right down the line — the best medical care in the world, the best housing in the world, that’s why people want to come here, is because of the system, and that’s the free enterprise system,” Marcus said.

Instead of looking to socialism, Marcus said to look at what the U.S. is doing right. He pointed to the current low unemployment and economic prosperity.

“Why would you want to take that formula, where there’s prosperity, where jobs are out there where people can pay their own way, take care of their families. Why would you want to change that?”

It’s a good question to ask those like Ocasio-Cortez who are eager to proclaim the virtues of socialism.  One just needs to look to Cuba or Venezuela to see what a few decades of socialism will do to a country.

Cohen’s Lawyer Has 1 Shot on Live TV, Accidentally Sends People to Trump’s Website


Reported By Jared Harris | August 22, 2018 at 5:39pm

Editor’s Note: Fox News reported that the website mentioned by Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, directed users to President Donald Trump’s campaign website. However, it now redirects visitors to a GoFundMe page for President Trump’s border wall. 

Lanny Davis is not having a good day.

On top of having to convince people his client Michael Cohen is ‘committed’ to the truth, he was apparently also tasked with raising his own paycheck.

On Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Lanny preached Cohen’s love of everything true. “He’s committed to telling the truth.”

“We’ve actually set up a website with the name ‘truth’ in it, called michaelcohentruth.com, and he’s looking for help from people who want to give donations to help him uh… tell the truth.”

There’s only one problem. Typing michaelcohentruth.com in your browser takes you to a GoFundMe page for President Donald Trump’s border wall.

Better not cash that paycheck just yet, Lanny.

Watch the latest video at <a href=”http://www.foxnews.com”>foxnews.com</a><br />

Where did it all go so wrong?

Lanny did the math. Fox has a huge number of viewers, so it would be a perfect place to promote the website. With possibly millions watching, what could go wrong?

Lanny gave a typical lawyer interview and was a courteous professional. Everybody wants to donate to those guys.

But despite doing everything right, our lovable lawyer failed to take a crucial step: visiting the website you’re planning to promote.

It’s a deceptively simple concept, one that 7 years at Yale never prepared him for.

Nobody noticed the website despite it being mentioned twice, and it was not corrected in the interview.

Before the questions get a little more aggressive and Lanny gets a little more frustrated, he was able to get one more confusing jab in.

“When Rudy Giuliani says ‘truth isn’t truth,’ you just heard Donald Trump reverse truth and make it into a falsehood.”

“It’s classic,” Lanny said, shaking his head with a chuckle. “Classic.”

You got that one right, Lanny.

Bill Nye Blames Climate Change for Irma… Real Scientist Instantly Silences Him


Reported 

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/bill-nye-blames-climate-change/?

Advertisement – story continues below

Bill Nye is a “Science Guy,” which is much different than being a scientist. For instance, it involves less actual science and more science-with-an-exclamation-point. If you have trouble telling them apart, the latter involves a) fewer facts and b) more stuff that can be easily grafted onto a condescending tweet from that friend who still has an “#I’mWithHer” profile picture.

The difference was pretty well on display when the erstwhile PBS kids-show host and current human septic tank gave an interview to Dan Rather on Sirius XM last week, and said unequivocally that Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are signs of climate change. His logic (aside from the fact that any climate event is a sign of climate change for true believers) is that warming doohickey kinda stuff’s going on and we ought to, you know, do something.

Unfortunately, actual scientists — not just “science guys” — were listening in, and one of them managed to silence Nye pretty much immediately on Twitter.

First, the interview: Nye claimed that the compelling factor linking Irma to climate change was how powerful it was.

“It’s the strength that is almost certainly associated with global warming,” Nye told Rather. “As the world gets warmer and there’s more heat energy in the atmosphere, you expect storms to get stronger. You also expect ocean currents to not flow the way they always have. That will make some places cooler and other places warmer.”

“The problem…is that these hurricanes are very powerful,” he added. “We’re all gonna pay for Harvey, we’re all gonna pay for Irma one way or the other. So … anyway, the more heat energy in the atmosphere strengthens the storms — as you would expect.”

Dr. Ryan Maue, a meteorologist with the Cato Institute, didn’t take long to respond to the errors in Nye’s statement to Rather:

Maue also linked to a piece by the National Weather Service, which made it clear that while the NWS felt there was the possibility that rising temperatures could lead to an increase in storm intensity by the end of the 21st century, there was no evidence that current storms were being strengthened due to man-made climate change.

“It is premature to conclude that human activities — and particularly greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming — have already had a detectable impact on Atlantic hurricane or global tropical cyclone activity,” the NWS piece stated. “That said, human activities may have already caused changes that are not yet detectable due to the small magnitude of the changes or observational limitations, or are not yet confidently modeled (e.g., aerosol effects on regional climate).”

In other words, there is s absolutely no evidence for Nye’s claim. And that doesn’t just come from Maue, but from the National Weather Service — certainly not a hive of clandestine climate change deniers.

So, just remember, when it comes to analyzing anomalous weather, it’s probably best to leave scientific opining to actual scientists, and not just soi-disant “Science Guys.” Of course, I doubt anyone who spreads “Science!” social media posts is going to pay much attention to the facts, but it’s always good to know that the truth is so easily accessible.

Marie Osmond Offers To Perform at Trump Inauguration To Help “Unite” America

Advertisement – story continues below

Singer Marie Osmond made a surprising offer that could alienate her from the liberal elite in Hollywood, all for the sake of unity. She said she would be willing to perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration if asked.

“I think when it comes to our country we need to unite,” Osmond recently said in an interview with Yahoo Finance“I think we should all support our president whether we’re happy or sad. This is America.”

Osmond, 57, has eight children of her own, and she said they all have different political beliefs. She added that she would never want them to feel division over politics.

“We should come together, and I think an Inauguration should be a time to unite, it really should,” the singer concluded.

Osmond and her brother, Donny, performed at President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration in 1981. She’s right that it’s time for the country to come together and let Trump do what the people elected him to do.

While Osmond confirmed that she would be on vacation during the event, we assume that she would have changed those plans had she been invited to perform.  That’s a big risk, considering the amount of venom most of Hollywood has been spewing against Trump since he announced he would run for office. There’s no doubt Democrats and liberal news outlets will trash Osmond for making the offer, but that’s exactly the kind of hate we’ve come to expect from the left.partyof-deceit-spin-and-lies

Yahoo reported that those who are scheduled to perform at the event included the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the Radio City Rockets, the Talladega (Alabama) College Marching Tornadoes and “America’s Got Talent” star Jackie Evancho, who will sing the national anthem.

BOOM: Clint Eastwood Has PERFECT Response to Hollywood Libs Calling Trump Racist


waving flagAuthored By: Ben Marquis on October 7, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/eastwood-hollywood-trump-racist/

nat-chair-day-logoFamed Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood has long been known to hold a different opinion than most of his peers, leaning more towards a libertarianish conservatism than the typical elitist liberalism. Not much has changed for Eastwood over the years, as the 86-year-old still stands apart from most of the other actors and directors he works with making movies.

Eastwood sat down not too long ago for a wide-ranging interview with Esquire magazine that touched on the topic of empty-suit-empty-chairpolitics a bit, and he held nothing back in delivering a blunt assessment of young Americans and the media, as well as the two presidential nominees, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Asked what he thought about people sort of adopting his classic film persona of being a tough guy that takes no guff from anyone, such as Trump, Eastwood replied, “But he’s onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now.”

“We’re really in a p**** generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells,” he continued. “We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”

Pressed for more about Trump, Eastwood explained: “What Trump is onto is he’s just saying what’s on his mind. And sometimes it’s not so good. And sometimes it’s … I mean, I can understand where he’s coming from, but I don’t always agree with it.”

He made clear that he was not offering up an endorsement of Trump but nevertheless had a message for those who routinely accuse Trump of being a racist.

“He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides,” he stated. “But everybody — the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist,’ and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just f***ing get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”

Eastwood proceeded to reminisce about his famed “empty chair” address at the 2012 Republican National how-was-paris-empty-chairConvention and spoke about how he’d like to see everybody work harder and be more understanding of others’ differences instead of simply calling names or being intolerant.

Asked his opinion of Clinton, he replied, “What about her? I mean, it’s a tough voice to listen to for four years. It could be a tough one. If she’s just gonna follow what we’ve been doing, then I wouldn’t be for her.”

The interviewer pressed Eastwood to make a decision between Clinton and Trump.

Eastwood responded, “That’s a tough one, isn’t it? I’d have to go for Trump … you know, ’cause she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in Obama’s footsteps.”

“There’s been just too much funny business on both sides of the aisle. She’s made a lot of dough out of being a politician,” he added. “I gave up dough to be a politician. I’m sure that Ronald Reagan gave up dough to be a politician.”

Though Clint Eastwood’s answers to the interviewer’s questions were far from an endorsement of Trump, it is pretty clear that he was leaning toward the GOP candidate in this election, for many of the same reasons many other Americans are.stupid
