Former White House interpreter says Biden administration canceled, humiliated her after she was outed as a Trump supporter


Heather Mewshaw, a former White House sign language interpreter who served in both the Trump and Biden administrations, says the Biden administration humiliated and canceled her after reports emerged that she is a Trump supporter who formerly translated speeches for conservative social media groups.

Mewshaw, a 41-year-old married mom of four from Glen Burnie, Maryland, says she hasn’t been offered a return engagement at the White House after Time published an “exposé” on her personal politics titled “Joe Biden’s Sign Language Interpreter Has Ties to Far Right,” according to a Monday report from the New York Post.

Mewshaw said that she has been the subject of harassment and threats following the release of the Time report, prompting her to fear for her own and her family’s safety. The Post reported that the harassment is because she provided “American Sign Language translation for the Hands of Liberty Facebook group and its defunct predecessor, Right Side ASL.”

“Those videos include one featuring former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani that’s titled ‘What Really Happened on January 6th?’ — the day of the deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters — and another, since removed, that features controversial Dr. Stella Immanuel, who has prompted treating COVID-19 with hydroxychloroquine, which the FDA has banned for that purpose,” the Post said.

In a statement to the outlet, Mewshaw said, “The goal of my activity — at the White House or with Hands of Liberty — is that it’s all about access. The thing is, I was cancelled and humiliated publicly and it was unjust and unfair.”

Mewshaw insisted that while she is a Trump supporter, she simply translates to provide information access for deaf people, and said that her critics “don’t want this content to be interpreted because they don’t believe in it.”

“Deaf people just want a chance to decide for themselves what information is out there,” she said according to the outlet.

A spokesperson for the Biden White House declined to comment on the reports and referred the Post to a previous statement that said, “The President and this administration have made a commitment to having an ASL interpreter at every press briefing and are working to follow through on that commitment every single day.”

A portion of Mewshaw’s full statement says:

My role as a Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) certified American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter is to facilitate communication between Deaf and non-signing parties in an effective, accurate and impartial way. The Deaf community, along with their allies, continue to fight for the right to have equal access to information that the general public enjoys without hardship.

Regarding my interpreting at The White House. I worked there as an independent contractor. I interpreted five (5) briefings for The Trump Administration in November and December 2020. On January 25, 2021, I interpreted for The Biden Administration at a press briefing. Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced that all future daily White House press briefings would have an ASL interpreter and she even introduced me to the world. That announcement is a huge advancement for the rights of the Deaf community and is to be commended. I was honored to be the interpreter that day.

To my surprise, the remarkable win of having an ASL interpreter at every White House press briefing has been overshadowed, by a few who, without evidence or merit, chose to cast aspersions against my ability to be objective and impartial because of my involvement in a conservative social media group. These unfounded claims about me were picked up by the media and numerous articles were written about this erroneous conclusion.

As a child of Deaf parents, abbreviated as CODA in the Deaf community (child of a Deaf adult), I have spent my whole life participating in the fight for the rights of Deaf people to have access to the same information as hearing people. In fact, my first language was ASL as it was my primary form of communication with my parents. As a CODA, I am in-between two worlds, the Deaf and the hearing, and I am in a unique position to unite those two worlds together.

Many videos on social media are not interpreted nor captioned. The ability for anyone to upload a video from their devices instantly brings an increased access challenge in this digital age. Groups formed on social media to interpret this video content for the Deaf community, however conservative content was generally not interpreted. Therefore, Michael Thompson, who is Deaf, created Hands of Liberty (HOL), formerly known as Right Side ASL, to fill the gap. HOL is an all-volunteer group, providing ASL access to videos requested by the Deaf community for free. The group has received over 2,000 video requests to date, since its inception in June 2020. The videos requested are of a variety of topics including but not limited to; speeches from the Presidential candidates, White House press briefings, Congressional hearings, television news segments and viral content. These interpreted videos support the Deaf community’s right to participate in all aspects of society and the right to informed choice. For me personally, my interpreting of a video requested through HOL does not necessarily equal an endorsement of the content of that video.

The mostly negative media coverage of me in recent weeks has been a disservice to the ASL interpreting profession. The message being conveyed is that ASL interpreters must have a certain set of beliefs or values that align completely with the consumers. We must remember that an ASL interpreter is relaying the message of another person and not their own. ASL interpreters are to be respected as objective professionals, irrespective of their own belief systems. There are examples of a double standard when it comes to ASL interpreters who openly identify as liberal activists working at events for conservative figureheads/politicians. These ASL interpreters are lauded by the media and their peers for having the ability to be objective and impartial. However, despite my undisputed professional work on January 25, 2021, I have been targeted and defamed by some in the Deaf community and the media because I worked as a Deaf advocate with HOL.

My work as an ASL interpreter has been, is and always will be effective, accurate and impartial. That is a core tenant of my certifications with the RID. My past work, my credentials, my unvarnished reputation, and 21 years of working as an RID certified ASL interpreter speaks for itself.

Black Trump Supporter Gunned Down in Milwaukee with Police Investigating ‘Political Motive’ Behind Attack


Reported by | Published

Bernell Trammell, 60, was killed on Thursday in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood outside of his business, Expression Publications. Trammell was killed in broad daylight and was known for distributing signs encouraging people to vote for Trump and repent to Jesus Christ.

As of right now, cops are unsure of any possible motive but are looking into whether or not Trammell was gunned down because of his strong Christian beliefs and pro-Trump political advocacy.

The community is mourning Trammell’s grizzly shooting death. They describe the pro-Trump activist as an affable enthusiastic man who loved God and his nation.

“I had an interaction with him last Saturday across the street from Walmart on Capitol Drive,” one woman said to the station.

“It was the second time I had seen him with his Trump sign and I pulled my car over to chat with him. What a nice, friendly man! We chatted for several minutes, and I told him I was proud of him and he’s very brave to put himself out there so visibly as a Trump supporter!” she added.

“He’s just a community figure,” Adebisi Agoro said. “I respected him just because he had a position.

“He’s got his opinion on why he feels that way; and I’m not going to knock him,” Agoro added.

Janette Island recalled the many deep intellectual conversations that she had with Trammell about issues like religion, politics, and the nature of life.

“It was very deep conversations, very philosophical,” she said. “He was a really great guy. He meant no harm.”

Big League Politics has reported on how left-wing terror has swept the nation as Trump derangement syndrome ravages the pliable brains of weak liberals:

ANTIFA terrorists targeted a Philadelphia bar with a violent rampage on New Years’ Day to send a message against law enforcement and the bar’s Trump supporting patrons.

“They’re terrorists. They just knocked out $20,000 worth of glass,” said 75-year-old restaurant owner Jack Gillespie, who is a retired police officer. He believes that ANTIFA picked out his bar to send a message of terror against law enforcement and patriotic Trump supporters who drink at the Millcreek Tavern.

Gillespie says that his bar has been at the receiving end of a campaign of threats and intimidation after it was learned that members of the Proud Boys group were allowed to drink at his bar.

“It was an assassination attempt on my character,” Gillespie told The Post Millennial.

The Proud Boys, frequently maligned by anti-Bill of Rights organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a hate group, have been profiled around the country for having the courage to stand and fight against ANTIFA thugs. Some group members have even become political prisoners for standing strong for freedom amidst this growing climate of rampant left-wing terror.

On Wednesday morning, security cameras caught masked ANTIFA terrorists spray painting hate speech on the building, such as “F— piss boys” and “ACAB,” which is short for “all cops are bastards” before smashing all of the windows.

“I hope [antifa] leave the innocent people alone. This affects the employees, not us,” said Sonny Sullivan, a member of the Philadelphia Proud Boys. He drank at the tavern in November with other members of his group as well as Turning Point USA members from the University of Drexel.

After news of the terrorist attack went public, left-wing activists cheered on the vandalism in posts permitted by monopoly social media providers.

While leftists have to stage elaborate hate hoaxes to falsely paint Trump supporters as a violent threat, conservatives are regularly attacked with polite society largely turning a blind eye to the mayhem. Welcome to anarcho-tyranny.

Trump Supporter Cleaning San Francisco Silences Liberal Critics With A Simple Question (VIDEO)


URL of the original posting site: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/02/trump-supporter-cleaning-san-francisco-silences-liberal-critics-with-a-simple-question-video/

Scott Presler is a Trump supporter who has led volunteer clean-up efforts in multiple American cities. Recently, he was doing it in San Francisco, where he actually encountered some critics. He shut them down by asking a simple question.

Townhall reports:

Beautiful: Man Cleaning Up After Democrats Asks One Question That Liberals Probably Can’t Answer…Or Defend

Oh, this is great. It’s a question that Democrats can’t answer or are unwilling to defend. And it was asked in the bastion of liberal America. Why do Democrats care more about illegal aliens than homeless Americans in the streets?

It’s a question that Scot Presler, the man whose been volunteering to clean up the garbage that’s accumulated in Democrat-run cities, asked of San Francisco residents. Yes, the crowd around him wasn’t big, but the question is still salient. Why is this the case?

The Democratic Party is keen on expanding sanctuary policies, giving illegals health care and driver’s licenses—but what about the homeless? On the West Coast or Left Coast, homeless people are becoming a hallmark characteristic. Presler noted that California is one of the biggest state economies in the country, but Sacramento would rather cater to illegals instead. California is a sanctuary state.

Presler noted that both his father and grandfather had served their country in the military and that he’s doing his part cleaning up communities around the country because he “gives a damn.”

Watch the video below:

Presler is asking lots of questions Democrats should answer:

This guy deserves some kind of award for all the great work he has done.

Watch: Trump Supporter Gives The Perfect Response When Spit On By A Unhinged Left Wing Protestor


Written by Staff Writer | December 25, 2019

Before the President’s rally in Minnesota, a supporter of President Trump was giving an interview with Vice News when he was spat on by a liberal protestor.

The supporter’s name is Dave Carlson who is a salesman in Minnesota and was speaking with Vice News explaining why he donates to President Trump. While speaking on camera a crazy left-wing protester spit in his face, Carlson’s response should be a model to us all.

Carlson simply winced, turned slightly, and replied, “Oh nice,” and chuckled.

The Vice News reporter was in genuine shock when another protester who witnessed what happened did apologize while Carlson was wiping the spit off his face.

Then another protester who was trying to take a picture arrived to explain why he thought it happened: “That’s not how people really feel; that’s f*cking disrespectful, but on the other hand, that shit is disrespectful as f*ck that too,” he said, pointing to Carlson’s hat.

Dear stupid Democrat protesters,

What is really disrespectful is you inciting violence and attempting to bully us. You can spit on us, punch us, and try to intimidate us but, remember we get to vote in November; we will not be silenced. The American people are watching and they aren’t going to support a candidate that is endorsed by thugs like you. Americans are going to support a candidate that a good man like Dave Carlson supports, a man that’s not going to let thugs intimidate him. Thank you, Dave, for being a model to us all. 

The Democrats and their thugs can do what they want…The silent majority is real and we will be heard just like we were heard in 2016. Trump supporters are good people, everyday Americans that make this country great. Not like these paid Democrat/Soros funded protesters that are sent to bully and harm Trump supporters to try and silence us.

Dear CNN: Trump Supporter Stabbed Because He’s Conservative – Is That ‘News?’


Reported by ClashDaily.com | Published on June 20, 2017

Cops calling it ‘racially motivated’.

Stabbed nine times.

Doctors weren’t sure if he’d survive.

He’s paying one helluva price for attending …

27-year-old Antonio “Tony” Foreman had just left a free speech rally in California alongside a slew of other well-known Trump supporters such as Kyle Chapman (“Based Sick Man“). Afterward, they headed to a local bar to relax. After a few hours at the bar, the group — many dawning Trump hats and supportive bumper stickers on their vehicles – decided to retire for the night. That is when things took a turn for the worse.

As Tony approached his vehicle, another car rammed through the parking gate vehicle barrier into the lot, directly smashing into Tony’s car. The Armenians exited their car and reportedly were initially receptive to exchanging insurance information. They walked the length of Mr. Foreman’s car and noticed multiple “pro-patriot stickers” including a “Gadsden flag, an American flag, and multiple other patriotic and pro-Republican stickers” on his bumper and back window. That’s when things took a turn for the worse.

After noticing these stickers, the Armenian gang member is reported to have walked back to his car before re-approaching Mr. Foreman. The car’s other passengers stepped out of the vehicle wielding knives. Within in a matter of minutes, Mr. Foreman was stabbed nine times right before one of the gang members screamed, “I’m going to shank you whiteboy!”

The Santa Monica police, when asked for comment, said, “There is no reason to believe that this was pre-meditated, but it was a racially charged attack.” — Read more 

The victim had this to say:

“We always hear about violence from the left, but I never thought it would happen to me. Next thing I know, I woke up in a hospital bed with 9 stab wounds for having patriotic stickers on my car. It really makes me sad to be attacked for my beliefs and who I am. I don’t wish this upon anyone, no matter your political views, and I hope my experience will help wake people up and stop this nonsense.”

Antonio is an Oathkeeper. (He’s there on the left.)

There’s a fundraising page to help with his hospital bills if any of our readers is so inclined.

This is yet another attack — that could have killed a man — for being a white guy with ideas that some thugs disapprove of.  Gee, do you think it could it be the emphasis on RULE of LAW that punks dislike about Republicans?

These punks can’t STAND somone daring to have any different idea than the ones they like.

Rather than engage in debate, they do their own version of the Julius Caesar treatment on the Trump supporter. They mobbed him and stabbed him nine times.

Amazing how life imitates art in this story.

The days ahead are NOT for the faint of heart.

TRUMP SUPPORTER: Slapped Down By His OWN Union … Now He’s Pushing BACK

What’s a Union for: To protect workers’ rights, or to boss them around? One CONSERVATIVE member had enough of his group’s double standard… and pushed back.

In an environment practically pulsing with Leftist activism, is he free — as a MEMBER — to express HIS political view? In an organization he pays dues for, should it be required that he share the consensus political opinion? Or is Freedom Of Association still important?

He’s in Social Work. As an industry, it tilts solidly left. And the schooling plays a part in that. We’ve seen a past story of a Social Work Student who took professors to court for penalizing his grades for having conservative political views.derangement-syndrom

But now Scott David Barrish is calling them out.

He wrote the following letter to the National Association Of Social Workers.

NASW Board of Directors,

I want to bring to your attention an action taken by the NASW Public Relations Manager, Greg Wright.

Over the weekend, I responded to a Facebook post by the NASW regarding the opposition of the appointment and confirmation of US Senator Jeff Sessions for the position of the US Attorney General. In the spirit of respectful discourse, I proffered my opinion in a manner that did not personally attack a single person. However, multiple people replying to my post did in fact engage in ad hominem abusive and ad hominem circumstantial attacks towards me.

At this point, I considered filing an ethics complaint being that the behavior crossed the threshold of violating the NASW Code of Ethics Sections 2.01 and 6.04 by personally attacking me for my political beliefs and who I supported in the previous general election.

This morning I get this Fb Message from Mr. Wright:

screen-shot-2017-01-15-at-8-49-14-am

free-speechIf you were to review the content of the discussion from start to finish, you will notice that at all times I bring up POLICY points and the other respondents bring up emotional personal attacks against me. So, when I remind them that their behavior is not the conduct of that of a social worker as outlined in the NASW Code of Ethics, this is taken as a threat by Mr. Wright’s own words because the other individuals complained. I’m sorry, but if they cry foul based upon their own poor conduct and someone is holding them accountable, that’s just too bad; yet I get punished.

Which brings me to a very salient point. The fact that NASW as an organization via its agent, Mr. Wright, to ban me from the NASW Fb page in being able to espouse my political beliefs and engage in respectful discourse is in fact a violation of its own Code of Ethics by taking punitive action against me for my political beliefs.

“2.01(b) Social workers should avoid unwarranted negative criticism of colleagues in communications with clients or with other professionals. Unwarranted negative criticism may include demeaning comments that refer to colleagues’ level of competence or to individuals’ attributes such as race, ethnicity, national origin, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, political belief, religion, immigration status, and mental or physical disability.”

“6.04(d) Social workers should act to prevent and eliminate domination of, exploitation of, and discrimination against any person, group, or class on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, political belief, religion, immigration status, or mental or physical disability.”

Now for the request: I am respectfully requesting that the NASW restore my access to the Fb page. I respectfully request an apology from Mr. Wright for his actions on behalf of the NASW in his prejudice shown base on his discrimination against me for my political beliefs.

Consequences for non-action or dishonoring my requests: Having worked on a US Presidential campaign, I have tremendous access to national media outlets. I will not hesitate to expose the hypocrisy of the NASW’s Code of Ethics and how they actually treat conservative members of the profession.

I have given Mr. Wright time to reply to my demands. I have a read receipt of the email I sent to him directly. I will now ask that you consider this matter and I will make a decision by week’s end if I should go to the media or not. I’m taking this matter very seriously. Based solely on your actions or non-action is how I will proceed. The choice is completely yours.

Sincerely,

Scott D. Barrish, BSW

PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO THE FOLLOWING MEMBERS:

Missing Board of Driector’s email addresses:

Mildred Joyner, MSW, LCSW, BCD – Vice President

Patrick johnson, LCSW – Treasurer

Alexandrya Blackmon – BSW Student Member

Jennifer Peck – MSW Student Member

The deadline having passed, he has now made this letter public.

See how the sort of people who endlessly howl with their laundry list of ethical objections to Trump being their President don’t even hold their OWN organization to a minimum ethical standard? Even when SHOWN they had violated their own standards? No WONDER the group endorsed Hillary… they don’t hold Democrats up to scrutiny.

Leftists howl about ‘minority rights’ about sex, race and Islam but show their true colors — and xenophobia — in how THEY BULLY people with minority opinions within their own group.

One member of the Facebook Group posted this:

We have to be ‘political’ in order to make sure the laws that are written are in favor of what we are working for and who we are working for. Before you take Scott David Barrish’s critique of NASW seriously, look closely at his profile picture. He’s a supporter of Trump. I highly doubt he really cares about what social workers do; if anything, he’s working against us.Leftist Propagandist

See? Liberals are always ‘good’ and Conservatives are always ‘bad’. And considering how activist leftists supposedly object to people being morally ‘judged’ for things … that’s pretty judgmental.
