Michelle Obama Tweets About Trump Vs. “The Squad”…”It’s Our America”

July 20, 2019

“Do they wonder why they (the Obamas) lost? If they were so adored — if their policies, if their agenda was so appreciated, if the American people were so enamored of it and they wanted more and more of it — then why did not Hillary win? Because Obama was campaigning for her.” – Rush Limbaugh, February 2018

FoxNews.com reports that

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has seemingly taken a shot at President Trump amid his ongoing feud with four progressive congresswomen, saying “there’s a place” for natural-born citizens and refugees alike.

Tensions escalated this week when the president blasted the Democratic “squad,” Reps Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., suggesting on Twitter that they “go back” to the countries they came. All four women are U.S. citizens, with Omar being the only one who was born outside of the U.S.

After exchanging several barbs during the week, Trump continued his attacks during Wednesday’s rally, during which a “send her back” chant aimed at Omar broke out from his supporters.

On Friday, the former first lady tweeted what seemed to be a rebuke of the remarks — while stopping short of mentioning the president directly.

“What truly makes our country great is its diversity,” Mrs. Obama tweeted. “I’ve seen that beauty in so many ways over the years. Whether we are born here or seek refuge here, there’s a place for us all. We must remember it’s not my America or your America. It’s our America.”

Her husband, former President Barack Obama, has not commented in on the feud.

While the Obamas have largely avoided weighing in on political matters since leaving the White House, Friday’s comments are not the first time the former first lady has seemingly tweaked Trump.

“The leader of the free world with a tweet can start a war, can crush an economy, can change the future of our children,” she told Gayle King of CBS News at the Essence Festival in New Orleans earlier this month.

She added the next president needs to have “deep seriousness and focus” and operate “with a clear base of facts and ideas.” She also said she thinks her husband sometimes made the presidency look easy.

“I guess it’s kind of like if the black guy can do it, anybody can do it — and that’s not true. It’s a hard job.”

“…made it look easy”?

Are you kidding me?

Three years into his presidency, Trump is still cleaning up Obama’s mess.

I am not at all surprised that “Mooch” has gotten involved.

Yesterday, the Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, issued the following warning…

By the way, don’t be surprised if she gets in the Democrat presidential primary race after the primaries. Don’t be surprised. I think the Obamas are looking at this as, “The primaries? That’s beneath us. We’re not gonna enter the primaries.” They’ll let these people fight it out, spend all their money, and then when it looks like none of them has a chance of beating Trump, here comes Michelle (My Belle) Obama at the latter moments of the campaign to jump into the fray and save the day for the Democrat Party.

After all, her and “The Squad” are “fellow travelers”.

Like “The Squad” and her husband, Former President Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama has always played The Race Card at every opportunity.

On January 23rd, 2008, during a speech given in Columbia, South Carolina, Michelle Obama said:

We don’t like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables, y’all living in different dorms. I was there. Y’all not talking to each another, taking advantage of the fact that you’re in this diverse community because sometimes it’s easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That’s America. So the challenge for us is, are we ready for change?

Then, in February of 2008, while campaigning for her husband in Wisconsin, Mrs. Obama said:

Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.

And let me tell you something. I need to believe that we live in that kind of nation, where hope and possibility and unity is still what drives us.

She made the “proud” comment twice in 2 different speeches. David Axlerod, Obama’s Chief Strategist, tried to explain it away at the time, saying:

She gives this talk all the time, and I don’t think she formulates the words quite that way generally. But if you look at the whole quote and read beyond it, she was plainly talking about this burst of participation, this sense of hope, the sense of possibility and so on. And she was talking about the politics of our country.

In an article titled “The Other Obama”, published on March 10, 2008, in The New Yorker Magazine, writer Lauren Collins gives us the following insights into the Future First Lady’s true feelings about America:

The four times I heard her give the speech—in a ballroom at the University of South Carolina, from the pulpit of Pee Dee Union, at an art gallery in Charleston, and in the auditorium of St. Norbert College, in De Pere, Wisconsin—its content was admirably consistent, with few of the politician’s customary tweaks and nods to the demographic predilections, or prejudices, of a particular audience.

Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. “We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,” she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. “Folks are just jammed up, and it’s gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I’m young. Forty-four!”

From these bleak generalities, Obama moves into specific complaints. Used to be, she will say, that you could count on a decent education in the neighborhood. But now there are all these charter schools and magnet schools that you have to “finagle” to get into. (Obama herself attended a magnet school, but never mind.) Health care is out of reach (“Let me tell you, don’t get sick in America”), pensions are disappearing, college is too expensive, and even if you can figure out a way to go to college you won’t be able to recoup the cost of the degree in many of the professions for which you needed it in the first place. “You’re looking at a young couple that’s just a few years out of debt,” Obama said. “See, because, we went to those good schools, and we didn’t have trust funds. I’m still waiting for Barack’s trust fund. Especially after I heard that Dick Cheney was s’posed to be a relative or something. Give us something here!”

Her expensive tastes, during her time as “First Lady”, which included Wagyu Beef and Lobster, her penchant for taking the most expensive vacations ever imagined by man (with larger entourages than an NBA Player), along with her attempts at telling Americans what we HAVE to feed our children and grandchildren, and how we should be raising them, did not exactly endear herself to the overwhelming majority of Americans.

Especially when she started telling us how to feed our children and grandchildren…

Past First Ladies always took a cause to tackle during their husbands’ terms.

Usually, it was a non-intrusive cause such as literacy or combating hunger in America.

Not, in the case of our globe-trotting (on our dime) Former First Lady, “Moochelle” Obama. Under the guise of battling Childhood Obesity, she decided to sic the food police on America’s school menus, turning our children into the Liberal Administrations’ own personal lab rats and overruling the parental authority of the average American Family.

Mrs. Obama eventually had to adjust her diet plan, because children were not receiving enough nourishment from her Diet Plan and literally falling out by the middle of the afternoon.

In response to this danger to the health of their students, several school systems across the nation told the First Lady what she could do with her non-nutritious Diet Plan, including the Liberal Bastion of New York State!

Most of the other First Ladies in my 60 years, such as our current one, Melania Trump, have brought a certain degree of class and decorum to their unelected position as “FLOTUS”.

Hillary Clinton being a notable exception.

Where that woman spits, grass never grows again.

But, I digress…

First Lady Melania Trump speaks six different languages fluently and came here on a special Visa which they call the “Einstein” Visa. Plus, she always presents herself as an asset to our nation in public.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama thinks decorum is something you do to a room.

God forbid that she decides to run for president.

America is still in the process of recovering from the last Obama to hold that office.

Until He Comes,

AOC: “We Are in a Fascistic Government”…Why Irony is Embarrassed.

July 19, 2019

hand-that-feeds-600-li

FoxNews.com reports that

Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar alleged Thursday that President Trump is steering the country toward fascism, as they ramped up their criticism of the president in the wake of a fiery rally where he repeatedly blasted the freshman lawmakers.

Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, reacted to the president’s recent comments — as well as the rally crowd’s reaction — by saying it shows they’re “not in politics anymore.”

“We are not in politics anymore. We are in racism… we are in a fascistic government,” she said.

Trump, however, sought Thursday to distance himself from the rally audience’s chant of “send her back,” which had been directed at Omar.

Ocasio-Cortez also said the rhetoric used in recent days could pose “personal security issues,” not just for lawmakers like herself, but other persons of color. The New Yorker added she trusts Capitol security officials will take care of security but is fearful more for immigrant communities and other persons of color.

 “People who are going to be targeted because of this rhetoric… that is our main concern,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Moments later, Omar also weighed in on Capitol Hill, saying: “I want to make sure that every single person who is in this country, who is aspiring to become part of the American fabric, understands nothing this president says should be taken to heart.

“We are Americans as much as anyone else, this is our country, and we are where we belong. I told people on my election night in the great state of Minnesota, we don’t just welcome refugees, we send them to represent us.

“And as much as he is spewing his fascist ideology on stage, telling U.S. citizens to go back because they do not agree with his detrimental policies for our country, we tell people that here in the United States, dissent is patriotic. Here in the United States, disagreement is welcomed, debate is welcomed – especially in the people’s House.”

Omar then referenced a group of women she was with, including one who she said recently became a citizen, saying: “This president does not speak for them, and we are going to make sure we get a president they can be proud of.”

During the “Make America Great Again” rally in North Carolina, the crowd broke out in a striking chant of “send her back” while the president criticized Omar and other members of the so-called progressive Democrat “squad.”

The three-word chant, which Trump did not respond to, referred to the president’s tweet on Sunday in which he asked why unnamed “Democrat Congresswomen” don’t “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came, then come back and show us how it is done.”

The president later affirmed he was referring to Omar, as well as Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley — all of whom, except Omar, were born in the United States. After a historic and bizarre floor fight, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives formally condemned Trump’s comments as “racist” on Tuesday.

As the president criticized Omar, shouts of “traitor” could then be heard in the crowd.

“And at a press conference just this week, when asked whether she supported Al Qaeda  — that’s our enemy, they are a very serious problem, that we take care of, but they always seem to come along somewhere — she refused to answer,” Trump then said.

“Omar blamed the United States for the crisis in Venezuela. I mean, think of that one. And she looks down with contempt on the hardworking Americans, saying that ignorance is pervasive in many parts of this country.”

As a handful of people began yelling, “Send her back,” Trump added: “And obviously and importantly, Omar has a history of launching vicious anti-Semitic screeds.”

The “send her back” chant escalated as Trump stepped away briefly from the podium.

The president did not acknowledge the crowd’s chant, and returned after a pause to continue on with his remarks.

On Thursday, however, Trump condemned the chant.

“I was not happy when I heard that chant,” he told reporters, saying he disagrees with it and noting he did not say it.

Prior to the rally, Fox News exclusively reported House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., was seeking extra protection for members of Congress on Monday after  Trump’s tweets and remarks about the progressive “squad.”

In the letter for House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving and Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger, Thompson argued that the Capitol Police Board should meet to “analyze the current threat environment and set thresholds for enhanced safety of Members.”

Thompson said security officials should set “thresholds for enhanced security for certain targeted Members, and evaluate threat streams with law enforcement partners in Member districts. Being proactive in this instance is vital to the safety of not only these targeted Members, but all Members of Congress.”

Fox News has been told that despite Thompson’s pleas, other lawmakers have faced more serious threats than members of the squad ahead of Trump’s tweets.

I’m sure.

“A fascistic government”? Are you kidding me?

Look in the mirror, genius.

For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals as “The New Fascism” because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans Faith and Values, including our relationship with our closest ally, since their birth as a country in 1948.

What we are seeing now, as regards the “Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse” and the growing radical movement to the Left of the Political Spectrum, which includes anti-Semitism, of the Democratic Party, which began under Former President Barack Hussein Obama, is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base.

Anti-Semitism is the norm in Marxism in all of its forms, fascism, and, of course, Islam.

All of these political philosophies are the anti-thesis of who the Far Left Democrats claim to be.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is in the middle of fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead, it is being fought with  superfluous Congressional Hearings attacking President Trump, anonymous sources, unproven baseless accusations, and the Vanguard of the Modern Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media.

It’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.

A form of government unique to America, a Constitutional Republic, which the clueless Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in a deflective move, identified as “fascistic”.

By now, there’s some out there in the audience saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracker’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that their radicalism “the will of the people” and they will site Democratically stacked push polls in order to back their opinion up.

Liberals can not legitimately defend their positions, such as the suppression of the Second Amendment Rights of average Americans, the Silent Coup began by those members of the DOJ and FBI during the Obama Administration against now-President Trump, the “Caining” of Judge Kavanaugh, and now, the  taking over of the Democratic Party by a bunch of wild-eyed anti-American radicals.

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible.

All of this political unethical behavior by the Far Left Democrats is reminiscent of both the Russian Revolution and Hitler and his Brown Shirts’ “Beer Hall Putsch” which probably should have been expected, given the “New Bolsheviks” track record of Liberal Intolerance and aversion to opposing viewpoints.

Ronald Reagan, during an interview with Mike Wallace on 12/14/75, quipped…

“You know, someone very profoundly once said many years ago that if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.”

The man was a prophet.

Trump Slams “Four Horsewomen” at MAGA Rally: “If They Don’t Love It…Tell ‘Em to Leave It!”

July 18, 2019

merlin_158087397_635b6c8d-00d8-4744-86c5-ae09f7374052-videoSixteenByNineJumbo1600

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump, at a fiery “Make America Great Again” campaign rally Wednesday night in Greenville, North Carolina, blasted four progressive congresswomen, Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, with whom he continues to spar after an ongoing feud over comments he made against them that critics deemed “racist.”

“Let ’em leave… they’re always telling us how to run it, how to do this, how to do that. You know what? If they don’t love it, tell ’em to leave it,” Trump said of the congresswomen, doubling down on similar comments he made on Twitter earlier in the week.

Trump slammed Omar on Wednesday saying she “smeared U.S. service members in ‘Black Hawk Down.’ She slandered the brave Americans trying to keep peace in Somalia,” a dig at her Somali-American heritage.

Trump also said Omar blamed America for the economic crisis in Venezuela and refused to condemn Al Qaeda.

Meantime, many in the crowd shouted, “send her back.” Omar later responded by quoting Maya Angelou.

Trump moved on to his critique of Tlaib, saying she “used the F-word to describe the presidency and your president.”

“That’s not nice, even for me,” Trump said. “That’s not somebody who loves our country.”

The president then took aim at Ocasio-Cortez, whom he mocked for her “three different names,” saying she inaccurately described the migrant holding facilities at the southern border as concentration camps.

Of Pressley, Trump said the congresswoman “thinks that people with the same skin color all need to think the same. She said, ‘we don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be brown voices, we don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice,'” a reference to remarks she gave at a conference this past weekend. “Can you imagine if I said that?”

At the top of his remarks Wednesday night, Trump celebrated the House’s decision to shelve impeachment proceedings against him.

“I just heard that the United States House of Representatives has overwhelmingly voted to kill the most ridiculous project I ever worked on,” Trump said, referring to an impeachment resolution proposed by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, that was widely opposed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other top Democrats.

“The resolution– how stupid is that– on impeachment.”

Trump called the 332-95 vote to sideline the impeachment resolution Wednesday “totally lopsided” and instead touted the strong economy and low unemployment numbers under his administration.

“And, they want to try and impeach,” he said. “It’s a disgrace.”

This past Sunday, Trump called for the progressive congresswomen to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done.”

The four congresswomen Trump apparently referenced are all American citizens and three of them were born in the United States.

The congresswomen, along with several other lawmakers, condemned the statements as racist and Trump fired back saying “Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body!”

Ocasio-Cortez rebutted the president Tuesday, saying, “You have a racist mind in your head, and a racist heart in your chest. That’s why you violate the rights of children and tell the Congresswomen who represent your home borough, to ‘go back to my country.'”

By the time you read this post on Thursday morning. the minions of the Far Left Democratic Party, the MSM, political pundits, and self-identifying “Moderates”, too, will be whining to everyone who will listen as to how Trump is losing voters by attacking the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse, as I have been calling them since this whole dust-up started.

Considering that rasmussenreports.com showed yesterday that Trump had actually gained popularity, coming in at 50%, I would say that blows that theory all to Hades.

As I wrote yesterday, what Trump has done is to make 4 anti-American radicals the face of the Democratic Party.

As I sat down to write this post last night, after watching the MAGA Rally in Greeneville, another revelation hit me.

The President, in a brilliant move of political ju jitsu, used the Democrats’ favorite playbook against them.

Democratic Politicians, as exhibited by Former President Barack Hussein Obama and Failed Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton use Saul Alinsky’s “12 Rules for Radicals” as one of their primary sources for political campaign strategy, whether it be for obtaining a political office or championing a cause.

Rule #12  –

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.“ Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”

By attacking the Four Horsewomen, Trump forced them to self-identify as Radicals.

Not only that, but he caused the House Dems to publically proclaim their support for them, thus identifying them as Radicals also in the eyes of Americans.

And, he got the Democrats stirred up so much that they, as Obama would say, “acted stupidly” by going ahead with another Impeachment Vote, which failed spectacularly.

Then, he put a lovely bow of the whole situation as if is was a Christmas Gift by quoting all of the anti-American things which the Four Horsewomen had said and laughing at the House Dems for attempting to impeach him, again.

Finally, after showing how the Democrats are not doing anything worthwhile with their majority in Congress, he listed all of his great accomplishments as President, so far.

He isolated the Four Horsewomen from the majority of Americans, first, and then he went after the institution known as the Democratic Party.

Gosh, Democrats, “Moderates”, and Never-Trumpers…

For a “political amateur”, Citizen Statesman and United States President Donald J. Trump is pretty sharp, huh?

KEEP AMERICA GREAT

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

 

Beer Hall Putsch to Congressional Chaos: House Dems Condemn President Trump, Stand With Anti-American Socialist “Squad”

July 17, 2019

untitled (278)

This quote comes from the Jewish Virtual Library. It is taken from a speech, delivered in 1942, given on the 19th Anniversary of the “Beer Hall Putsch”, by German Chancellor Adolph Hitler.

The Beer Hall Putsch was an incident that took place on November 8, 1923, when Nazi troops under the direction of Hermann Goering surrounded the a beer hall in Munich, Germany. At 8:30 p.m., Hitler and his storm troopers burst into the beer hall causing instant panic. Hitler announced to the crowd that the Revolution had begun, and went to the back room of the hall to try to persuade the local officials to capitulate to him. They wouldn’t. Hitler’s attempt to seize power that night failed. But, thanks to word of mouth, and Hitler’s use of propaganda, a seed was planted, that would eventually lead to World War II.

By now, you are probably asking:

Okay. So what does this have to do with anything?

Hitler eventually rose to power by praying upon the economic despair, hopelessness, and avarice of the German people, whose country was savaged by the Great Depression of 1929.

Hitler chose his nations Jewish Population as his scapegoat, blaming them for Germany’s plight. He soon attracted legions of young men, swayed by his propaganda, who began to march the streets of Germany, intimidating anyone who dared to disagree with them.

Hitler formed a political party, naming it The National Socialist Party, which led to he and his thugs being called “Nazis”.

The era became known as the “Rise of Fascism”.

Fast forward to July 16, 2019…

FoxNews.com reports that

The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives passed a resolution Tuesday evening condemning President Trump’s “racist” remarks this weekend — although the moment was largely overshadowed by a dramatic floor fight earlier in the day that ended with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ruled out of order for a breach of decorum.

The unexpected mayhem in Congress, which briefly resulted in the revocation of Pelosi’s speaking privileges on the House floor, left commentators and lawmakers stunned. “So, Democrats vote to break House rules and decorum, so that they can call Trump out on decorum. Surreal,” wrote Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel.

The final resolution, entitled “H. Res. 489 — Condemning President Trump’s racist comments directed at Members of Congress,” passed by a vote of 240-187. All Democrats voted yea, with Republicans joining them: Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick, Will Hurd, Fred Upton and Susan Brooks.

Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, who recently left the Republican Party after calling for Trump’s impeachment, also voted yes. The rest of the Republicans voted no.

The resolution asserted that “President Donald Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.” The document mentioned Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, and quoted luminaries such as Benjamin Franklin, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, President John Kennedy and President Ronald Reagan.

Trump had tweeted on Sunday that unnamed “Democrat Congresswomen” should go back and fix the “corrupt” and “crime infested places” from which they came and then “come back and show us how it’s done.” He later all but affirmed he was referring to Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley — all of whom, except Omar, were born in the United States.

But, what Democrat leaders envisioned as a moment of Democrat unity turned out to be a striking display of disarray. As Pelosi spoke in favor of the resolution on the floor, she used frank and unsparing terms about Trump’s comments — and soon became the story herself.

“There is no place anywhere for the president’s words, which are not only divisive, but dangerous — and have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said. “It’s so sad because you would think that there would be a given that we would universally, in this body, just say, ‘Of course. Of course.'”

Pelosi continued, her voice rising: “There’s no excuse for any response to those words but a swift and strong unified condemnation. Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets. To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values, and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people. I urge a unanimous vote, and yield back the balance of my time.”

Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins rose to challenge her and demand that her words be “taken down.” The extraordinary rebuke was the first of its kind involving a member of Congress and a speaker of the House in decades.

Collins immediately stood and asked if Pelosi wanted to “rephrase that comment.”

“I have cleared my remarks with the parliamentarian before I read them,” Pelosi claimed, before walking away to applause.

“Can I ask the words be taken down? I make a point of order that the gentlewoman’s words are unparliamentary and be taken down,” Collins said.

“The chair will remind all members, please, please, do not make personality-based comments,” Cleaver said.

Collins then repeated his request to strike Pelosi’s comments. For more than 30 minutes after Collins’ objection, House members were huddled with the parliamentarian, Thomas J. Wickham Jr., to determine next steps.

As the consultation dragged on, Pelosi then appeared to leave the House floor, which itself constituted a violation of House Rules when someone’s words were taken down. Members are supposed to be seated on the floor when a member’s words are stricken.

The scene then became even more bizarre when the chair, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., told representatives after the lengthy huddle that he was trying to make a fair ruling as to whether Pelosi had broken House rules governing decorum, but people weren’t cooperating. Cleaver explained to Fox News he felt Pelosi was being singled out.

Cleaver simply declared, “I abandon the chair,” and left — a moment with no apparent precedent in modern congressional history. North Carolina Rep. G.K. Butterfield, also a Democrat, assumed the chair, before Hoyer took the reins.

Hoyer eventually assumed the chair upon Pelosi’s request so that a Democrat leader, and not a rank-and-file member, could take control. Hoyer eventually read the parliamentarian’s ruling that, based on the precedent “of May 15, 1984,” Pelosi’s language did not meet the standard.

“The words used by the gentlewoman from California contained an accusation of racist behavior on the part of the President,” Hoyer said, affirming the House parliamentarian’s decision and technically banning Pelosi from speaking on the House floor for the rest of the day.

“The words should not be used in debate,” Hoyer said.

Since President Trump tweeted the truth about the “Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse”, as I have named them, or “The Squad”, as they named themselves, there has been a lot of hand-wringing and unfounded cries of racism by both Democrats and “Moderate” Republicans who were never really sure of his ability to lead our nation to begin with.

Let’s step back and analyze exactly what has transpired over the last few days.

The president of the United States of America took to Twitter and called out four anti-American Marxists for their continuous criticism and visceral hatred for America and its majority population

The Democrats, in return, declared Trump’s tweets to be racist in nature, even though the races of those he targeted were never mentioned.

To paraphrase Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,

“The tweets were not about the color of their skins. But rather, about the content of their characters.”

Since personal responsibility in anathema to the Far Left Democratic Party, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was until now locked in a war with the Four Horsewomen over control of the House of Representatives, started defending their anti-American behavior, including erroneously calling the President a “racist” from the floor of the House, a breach of house protocol and decorum.

Democrats, after being pressured to by Rep. Doug Collins and other House Republicans, had Pelosi’s words stricken from the Congressional Record.

However, the damage was already done…to the Democrats.

President Trump has access to all sorts of political polls, external and internal. He knew that the overwhelming majority of Americans thing that the “Four Horsewomen” stink on ice.

Trump knew exactly what was going to happen when he sent the tweets attacking them.

He knew that the House Democrats would rally around them and come after him.

In other words, Trump made Pelosi and the self-proclaimed “Moderate” Establishment Democrats defend the radical anti-American Far Left Marxist “Gang of 4”, forever linking them together in the eyes of American Voters.

Trump did not become a billionaire and then the President of the United States of America by being stupid.

Just like Hitler and his National Socialist Party’s Beer Hall Putsch revealed their true nature to the German people, so did yesterday’s Congressional Chaos reveal who the Democrats actually are.

They are Socialists, too.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

How Could Trump Be a “Racist” When None of His Tweets Mentioned Race?

July 16, 2019

Playing the race card is done as if it were some kind of sport. – Former Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr.

PROLOGUE (Today.com, November 11, 2008)

In the wake of her family tragedy, Jennifer Hudson has received a helping hand from a very unlikely source — Donald Trump.

Hudson and some of her family members have been staying at the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago, and Trump has been picking up the tab.

“They are safe,” Trump told People on Monday night. “She’s a great girl and we’re protecting them well.”

According to E! Online, Hudson has been staying at the hotel since arriving in Chicago on Oct. 24, the day her mother, Darnell Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson, were found murdered, and her nephew, Julian King, was found missing.

Since checking into the hotel, the Oscar winner and former “American Idol” star has rarely left the hotel.

For those of you Liberals and Never-Trumpers living in a bubble out there, Jennifer Hudson, a wonderfully talented singer and performer, happens to be black.

FoxNews.com reports that

In spirited remarks tinged with open animosity, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., standing side-by-side with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib, declared at a news conference Monday on Capitol Hill that “it is time for us to impeach this president” for “openly violating” his constitutional oath.

“The eyes of history are watching us” in this “pivotal moment,” Omar said.

“This is a president who has said ‘grab women by the pu–y,'” Omar continued, as her colleagues stood behind her stone-faced. “This is a president who has called black athletes ‘sons of bit–es.’ This is a president who has called people who come from black and brown countries ‘sh–holes.’ … To distract from that, he’s launching a blatantly racist attack on four duly elected members of the United States House of Representatives, all of whom are women of color. This is the agenda of white nationalists.”

Trump, in fact, called those who kneel during the national anthem “sons of bit–es,” not black athletes generally. And his comments concerning “sh–holes” referred to places, not individuals.

Just hours earlier, Trump forcefully doubled down on his explosive call this weekend for progressive congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from and “come back and show us how it’s done,” rather than criticize the Trump administration. He also demanded they “apologize” for what he called their anti-American “hate.”

Pressley, speaking just before Omar, repeatedly derided President Trump as “the occupant of the White House” and said he was seeking to “marginalize and silence” the women.

But she then issued a call for calm that appeared to go unheeded: “I encourage the American people and all of us, in this room and beyond, to not take the bait,” Pressley said, calling the situation a “disruptive distraction.”

Instead, Omar asserted that the U.S. had a “long way” to go until it could live up to its founding values. She repeated unsubstantiated allegations that people were drinking from “toilets” in immigrant detention centers. U.S. officials have contested those claims fiercely.

“Right now, the president is committing human rights abuses at the border,” Omar said, before saying Trump has been “credibly accused” of criminal conduct, including colluding with a foreign adversary. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s lengthy probe concluded earlier this year, finding no evidence that the Trump team in fact conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election, despite several outreach efforts by Russian actors.

Omar also slammed Trump for keeping children in “cages” — prompting Trump to tweet, minutes after the news conference, that illegal-immigrant children were photographed in cages under the Obama administration.

Trump added that he wanted to fix the “BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS” that have led to poor border conditions and overcrowding.

Omar, however, curtly dismissed Trump’s rhetoric as “the bile of garbage that comes out of his mouth.”

Asked by a reporter to respond directly to Trump’s insinuations that she is a pro-terrorist communist, Omar said, “every single Muslim who has lived in this country and across the world has heard that comment, and so I will not dignify it with an answer.”

Tlaib, speaking separately, backed Omar’s call for impeachment, saying Trump’s language was “disgusting and bigoted” and that his administration was “lawless.”

In case you do not remember, the night that Rep. Tlaib was sworn in as a member of the 116th Congress, she was videotaped vowing to impeach the president. This was shortly after she penned an op-ed for The Detroit Free Press outlining the case for impeachment.

The video showed Tlaib telling supporters.

“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says: ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf***er.’”

Classy, huh?

Tlaib is a Black Muslim, born in America to parents of Palestinian descent.

As I have been writing over the last several years, Liberals are nothing if not predictable.

They view everything in terms of politics and race, not necessarily in that order.

From city councils to Congress, you can bet your bottom dollar, that when a Democrat is in a losing position over any public matter, if they happen to be a “person of color”, they will play the Race Card.

This egregious claim continuously coming from House Democrats and their fellow travelers in the Far Left Democratic Party, that President Trump is a racist or a White Supremacist, reminds me of all the historical conflicts which I used to read about, during a course in college which I took titled “The Rhetoric of Social Protest“.

Karl Marx knew long ago that all you needed to do to touch the heart of the common man was to convince him of a shared struggle.

Vladimir Lenin took this a step further, by using the concept of a shared struggle to convince the Bolsheviks to help him overthrow the Czar of Russia and murder him and his family during the Russian Revolution.

Forgive me for stating the obvious, but fiery rhetoric spoken by anyone in a leadership position, especially someone in our Federal Government, has consequences.

The throwing of the Race Card by the Democrats first really came into prominence during the Obama Administration.

Former President Barack Hussein Obama is as responsible for what has happened to Race Relations in America, as any thug wannabe in any city.

However, he is not alone in his responsibility.

Every race-baiter, local & national, like the “Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse”, as I have named them, who have fanned the flames of racial hatred, has the blood of any innocent person, police and civilians alike, slain in the name of Racial Division.

Do you remember when one half of the “Justice Brothers”, the “Reverend” Al Sharpton, led a march in New York City, capitalizing on the deaths of two of Michael Brown and Earl Garner?

During the march, the protesters chanted

What do we want? Dead Cops!

Somehow, America’s Professional Race-Baiters, from the Former Community Organizer-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, on down, twisted the facts to make it America’s Law Enforcement Officers’ Fault that two thugs got themselves killed in altercations with police officers.

What ever happened to personal responsibility?

President Ronald Reagan once said,

There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.

Compare it to these words:

It’s not to make excuses for that fact — although black folks do interpret the reasons for that in a historical context. They understand that some of the violence that takes place in poor black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country, and that the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history. – President Barack Hussein Obama, 7/19/2014

Obama, for his own political reasons, reinforced at every opportunity while President, the self-fulfilling prophecy that the Black Community was still shackled and limited in their freedom.

Which was a delicious bit of irony considering that, as a black man, he held for 8 long years the position of President of the most powerful country on the face of the Earth.

The erroneous claims of bigotry aimed at President Trump, are merely a codicil in the Playbook of the Perpetually Aggrieved, as they continue their never-ending National Temper Tantrum over the results of the 2016 Presidential election, as witnessed by the behavior of the Democrats up on Capitol Hill, their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, and their “foot soldiers”, Antifa and the rest of the “New Bolsheviks”, whose mission is to disrupt and intimidate.

In what has to be the worse case of mass self-unawareness on record, Modern American Liberals continue to make themselves look like poor losers and crybabies, as they continue to behave like petulant teenagers who have been grounded for acting out.

Freshman Congresswomen Tlaib, Omar, Ocasio Cortez, and Pressley are nothing but aniti-American pariahs, to be shunned, ridiculed, and not taken seriously.

Personally, I hope that the “Four Horsewomen” and the rest of the Democrats continue to behave like the jackasses that they are.

At this rate, Trump should win the 2020 Presidential Election in a landslide.

Trump Tells Off “Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse” on Twitter, They Accuse Him of Racism

July 15, 2019

trump-tells-progressive-freshman-congresswomen-to-go-back-to-their-broken-and-crime-infested-countries.png

FoxNews.com reports that

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, fresh from a bitter public spat with top House Democrats, unloaded on President Trump Sunday afternoon after he suggested that unnamed progressive congresswomen “go back” to their own “corrupt” and “crime infested” countries of origin, then “come back and show us how it is done.”

“You can’t leave fast enough,” Trump had written.

Ocasio-Cortez’s fiery Twitter return barrage could be the call to action that unifies a party currently divided along establishment and progressive lines, observers said, even as some analysts blamed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for laying the groundwork for Trump’s remarks.

“Mr. President, the country I ‘come from,’ & the country we all swear to, is the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “But given how you’ve destroyed our border with inhumane camps, all at a benefit to you & the corps who profit off them, you are absolutely right about the corruption laid at your feet.”

Ocasio-Cortez continued: “You are angry because you don’t believe in an America where I represent New York 14, where the good people of Minnesota elected @IlhanMN, where @RashidaTlaib fights for Michigan families, where @AyannaPressley champions little girls in Boston. You are angry because you can’t conceive of an America that includes us. You rely on a frightened America for your plunder. You won’t accept a nation that sees healthcare as a right or education as a #1 priority, especially where we’re the ones fighting for it. Yet here we are.”

Trump’s tweets did not name any specific congresswomen. Ocasio-Cortez, who is of Puerto Rican descent, was born in the Bronx, New York, and raised in suburban Westchester County.

Ilhan Omar, the first Somali native elected to Congress and one of its first Muslim women, was born in Somalia but spent much of her childhood in a Kenyan refugee camp as civil war tore apart her home country.

Rashida Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman in Congress, was born in Detroit. Ayanna Pressley, the first black woman elected to the House from Massachusetts, was born in Cincinnati.

“But you know what’s the rub of it all, Mr. President?” Ocasio-Cortez concluded. “On top of not accepting an America that elected us, you cannot accept that we don’t fear you, either. You can’t accept that we will call your bluff & offer a positive vision for this country. And that’s what makes you seethe.”

Tlaib, in her own response, tweeted that Trump “needs to be impeached” and called him “a lawless & complete failure of a President.”

Omar accused Trump of “stoking white nationalism” and added, “As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States. Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen.”

Pressley wrote: “THIS is what racism looks like. WE are what democracy looks like. And we’re not going anywhere. Except back to DC to fight for the families you marginalize and vilify everyday.”

Trump specifically invoked Pelosi, D-Calif., in his original comments, writing, “I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements” for the members of Congress to leave the U.S. temporarily.

The president also condemned the congresswomen for “viciously telling the people of the United States” how “the government is to be run.” He suggested that they “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” before returning home.

Just days earlier, Pelosi had urged junior members of her caucus not to tweet attacks at fellow Democrats, and had spoken dismissively of the new freshman firebrands.

Pelosi specifically told The New York Times last week that Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Pressley, and Tlaib “have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”

On Sunday, after Trump’s remarks, Pelosi came under renewed scrutiny.

For her part, Pelosi quickly condemned Trump’s comments, and said they showed he wanted to make America “white again.”

Ummm…no, San Fran Nan.

President Trump feels like those of us who voted for him in 2016 and will vote for him again in 2020.

We all want those 4 anti-American heifers to shut their big useless mouths and love America and do their jobs…or leave the country.

America’s anger toward them has nothing to do with the color of their skin and everything to do with the content of their character.

They, like you, have a job to do, a responsibility to serve Americans, all Americans, not illegal immigrants, not just Somalians dumped by Obama in Minnesota, not just Muslims, not just “Democratic Socialists”…ALL AMERICANS.

All those four miserable clueless individuals have done since being elected to Congress is to take up space and hog air time on the Democratic Party’s Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media.

Oh, and while I’m thinking about it, average Americans do not need the 4 of them trying to tell us how to live our lives.

Tell “The Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse” to go ask Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton how their attempts to do that worked out for them.

Madame Speaker, you and your fellow travelers’ attempts to equate American Patriotism with racism and bigotry by calling it “white nationalism” is falling on deaf ears.

Average Americans are proud of our country.

And, we support our President…because he has worked on OUR behalf…not his own, like you and your fellow House Democrats have.

You and your so-called “Moderate” House Democrats (which is a misnomer if I have ever heard one) should have gotten the Four Horsewomen under control from the get-go.

The fact that they are intimidating and running roughshod over all of you shows just how ineffectual and positively clueless you really are.

Enjoy your political party’s voyage down the ol’ porcelain receptacle.

Perhaps you guys should just rename yourselves “The Whigs” and get it over with.

Illegal Immigration and the ICE Raids: What IS Our Duty as Christian Americans?

July 14, 2019

flag-and-cross

FoxNews.com reports that

Authorities in Colorado restored an American flag to its place Friday evening after protesters demonstrating outside a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility pulled down the star-spangled banner and flew the flag of Mexico in its place.

The protesters also removed a “Blue Lives Matter” flag, honoring law enforcement, spray-painted it with the words “Abolish ICE,” then raised the flag upside-down, on a pole next to the Mexican flag, according to local media.

Hundreds of protesters had gathered in Aurora, Colo., outside the federal facility that holds illegal immigrants, to protest ICE raids scheduled to begin Sunday in Denver and other major U.S. cities, FOX 31 Denver reported.

Aurora police Chief Nick Metz said the majority of protesters remained peaceful and some even thanked officers for their evening efforts.

The protest, part of a network of #LightsForLiberty events, also dubbed the “March to Close Concentration Camps,” called for detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border to be closed and for all immigrants being held in those locations to be granted entry to the U.S., according to the event’s Facebook page.

Beginning Sunday, ICE agents will reportedly work to round up thousands of illegal immigrants across the U.S.

President Trump delayed the operation by two weeks to allow Dems to propose a bipartisan solution to the humanitarian crisis at the border.

Speaking to Fox News during his visit to the border Friday, Vice President Mike Pence said the upcoming ICE raids will not be done at random and will be focused on “removing those deported by courts.”

Besides Denver, the raids were expected to take place in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco. Raids scheduled for New Orleans may be delayed due to Tropical Storm Barry, KCNC reported. Other #LightsForLiberty protests took place across the U.S. Friday, including in San Ysidro, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; and New York City.

PROLOGUE: I got into a “discussion” on a Facebook Page with several Liberal “friends” about 5 years ago, concerning the current invasion of illegal aliens happening at our Southern Border. They jumped on me, giving me instructions as to how I should think and act, due to my unashamed pronouncement of my Christian Faith. While answering them back as best as I could at the time, I felt that they deserved a more complete answer, so that I would not be misunderstood.

So, hold on to something. Here we go.

Romans 13:1-7 This Biblical passage leaves no doubt  that God expects us to obey the laws of the government. The only exception to this is when a law of the government is in opposition to one of God’s commands (Acts 5:29).

The current invasion of underage Latin American Minors, bein transported up to our southern Border by the Drug Cartels is an example of Roman 13: 1-7.

Illegal immigration is the breaking of a governmental law. There is no scripture in the Holy Bible that contradicts a nation having immigration laws. Therefore, it is a sin, rebellion against God, to illegally enter into another country.

Illegal immigration is definitely a controversial issue, not only in the United States, but in European countries, as well, as they are being invaded by Muslims who are setting up Sharia Law in countries such as the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Denmark.

The fact of the matter is, Romans 13:1-7 does not give any Christian permission to violate a law just because it is unjust. Again, the issue is not the fairness of a law.

Judge Roy Stewart Moore (born February 11, 1947) is an American judge and Republican politician and the former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. He is noted for his both his recent failed political campaign and his prior refusal, in 2003, as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Judicial Building despite orders to do so from a federal judge. On November 13, 2003, the Alabama Court of the Judiciary unanimously removed Moore from his post as Chief Justice.

On November 6, 2012, Moore won election back to the office of Alabama Chief Justice, defeating replacement Democratic candidate Bob Vance.

During his swearing-in ceremony Moore told an overflow audience, some of who watched from another room on closed circuit television,

We’ve got to remember that most of what we do in court comes from some Scripture or is backed by Scripture.

The following is an Opinion Piece he wrote a while back, which is as good a one on the subject of this post, as I have read.

Immigration and Christian Duty 

Just last week a reporter covering the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention asked me about the debate in the Christian community over the treatment of illegal immigrants: should we demonstrate Christian love and concern for their salvation or should we oppose amnesty legislation and enforce the immigration laws? The answer is yes: we can and should do both. America is a nation of immigrants. From the beginning, people have come here for freedom and prosperity. As early as 1783, George Washington wisely explained the privileges and duties of those seeking to become citizens of our Country: The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respectable Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges, if by decency and propriety of conduct they appear to merit the enjoyment.

…The Statue of Liberty still beckons from the New York Harbor, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” We should never turn our backs to those who show by their “decency and propriety of conduct” that they deserve to live here as an American citizen. But as Washington explained, citizenship entails not only the rights and privileges which flow from it, but also the duties and responsibilities which entitle an individual to its enjoyment.

Immigration is the legal means by which one becomes a citizen of the United States. It has historically required an application process for citizenship, including a test, an investigation, and an oath of allegiance to our Country and Constitution. To call those illegally residing here “immigrants” is an insult to those who have demonstrated the patience, responsibility, and fortitude to immigrate here legally.

When a person – from any country – enters our Country illegally, makes no application for citizenship, does not learn our language, does not care for our customs, and seeks only the benefits of living in America, they have not “immigrated” here at all. They are not “immigrants,” but rather, “illegal aliens.” Recent “May Day” demonstrations by illegal aliens that feature Mexican flags, anti-American slogans, and racist statements against “gringos” only confirm the intentions of many illegal aliens to not assimilate into our culture and way of life, but to displace it with their own. Their lack of “decency and propriety of conduct” show they neither desire nor deserve to be legal citizens.

…Unfortunately, too many Christians have been deceived to think that our duty to love and care for illegal aliens means that we should ignore immigration laws and disregard our borders. But as President Ronald Reagan once said, “A nation without borders is not a nation.” Our borders are compromised by illegal immigration, infiltration of terrorists, and by government policies of regional partnership that actually dilute the sovereignty of the United States. The choice is not between our Christian duty and our border laws,  it’s a matter of life or death for our nation. The same God who commands that we treat aliens and “strangers” with righteousness and justice also clearly defined the physical borders for the nation of Israel, in detailed geographical terms, in Numbers 34. Israel, then and today, would not exist without borders?and neither will America. We should love and care for “the stranger among us” and always be mindful of their need for salvation. But we also have a duty to apply all laws equally and fairly without regard to race, creed, color, or national origin. Our immigration laws must be strictly and justly enforced. It’s not only a matter of national survival. It’s our Christian duty. 

The vast majority of illegal immigrants in the United States have come for the purpose of having a better life, providing for their families, and escaping from poverty. These are good goals and motivations. However, it is not biblical to violate a law to achieve something “good.” Caring for the poor, orphans, and widows is something the Bible commands us to do (Galatians 2:10; James 1:27; 2:2-15). However, the biblical fact that we are to care for the misfortune does not mean we should violate the law in doing so. Supporting, enabling, and/or encouraging illegal immigration is, therefore, also a violation of God’s Word. Those seeking to immigrate to another country should always obey the immigration laws of that country. While this may cause delays and frustrations, these reasons do not give a person the right to violate a law.

So, what is the Biblical Solution to illegal immigration? Simple…don’t do it; obey the laws.

Liberals tend to attempt to set the boundaries and to change the teachings of Jesus Christ to fit with their “political collective” mindset. The turning of a political situation, such as “The Migrant Caravans”, into a “humanitarian catastrophe” is just the most recent example.

Their claim concerning salvation is framed in similar terms. Liberal Democratic pundits both professional and amateur, put forth the opinion that Salvation is a group experience, likening it to a political movement, which could not be further from the truth, couching their political ideology-driven benevolence behind the term “Social Justice”.

I do not believe that Jesus would be a part of the Social Justice Movement. His was and is a soul-saving movement. One that still brings hundreds of thousand of people to salvation on this terrestrial ball every day. A movement that, in fact, was embraced by the Founders of this cherished land.

It is interesting to me, that the “most caring people in the room”, the members of the Far Left Democtratic Party, whom, under normal circumstances, want Conservative American Christians to sit down, shuddup, and limit their faith to Sunday mornings from 10 a.m. – Noon, now are lecturing us about how we should support their “Illegal Immigrant Initiative”.

I will wrap up this post by quoting  Dr. Albert Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky:

Regrettably, there is no shortage of preachers who have traded the Gospel for a platform of political and economic change, most often packaged as a call for social justice…

The church is not to adopt a social reform platform as its message, but the faithful church, wherever it is found, is itself a social reform movement precisely because it is populated by redeemed sinners who are called to faithfulness in following Christ. The Gospel is not a message of social (collective) salvation, but it does have social implications.

Luke 20:25

And he (Jesus) said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar‘s, and unto God the things which be God’s.

Until He Comes,

Former ICE Director Tom Homan Lays A Verbal Smackdown on House Dems

July 13, 2019

Tom-Homan-counters-Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez-on-immigration-CSPAN-screengrabs-e1562967645498

FoxNews.com reports that

Former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan delivered a fiery defense of border agents during a House hearing where Democratic lawmakers just hours earlier had decried conditions at migrant detention centers — as he ripped into the agency’s congressional critics and said they should be “ashamed” of their conduct.

“If you don’t like this, do your job. Fix it,” Homan testified before the House Oversight Committee, recalling in graphic detail his own experiences on the job seeing dead bodies in tractor-trailers as he underscored the severity of the border crisis.

He said agents, amid this crisis, have been subject to “unprecedented attack and vilification” and “those men and women who chose a life of service to this nation deserve better, not only from the media but those in this committee and other members of Congress.”

“As a 34-year veteran of law enforcement, it is shocking, shocking to see constant attacks against those that leave the safety and security of their homes every day, put on a Kevlar vest and put a gun on their hip and risk their own safety to defend this nation,” he said, at times appearing to get choked up as he defended his former colleagues.

He appeared to be in part referring to accusations by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and others who have made a host of allegations against agents, including that migrants were made to drink from toilet bowls. Ocasio-Cortez blasted the Trump administration’s immigration policies and stood by her accounts from the border during testimony earlier Friday, alongside colleagues Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.

“Those that attack the professional integrity of those that serve and blatantly throw unsubstantiated allegations against these men and women with zero evidence of guilt are wrong and should be ashamed,” Homan shot back.

Much of the focus of the hearing was on the treatment of migrants detained crossing the border by the tens of thousands each month. But while acknowledging there was a humanitarian crisis at the border, Homan pushed back on some of the rhetoric being used by Democrats and activists who have accused agents of misconduct and mistreatment of migrants.

“The same people that vilify border patrol for detention conditions are the same people that refuse to answer the call for help, until it’s too late,” he said, apparently referring to those Democrats who refused to back a bill that increased humanitarian funding by $4.5 billion to the border.

He pointed to the more than 4,000 lives saved by Border Patrol agents last year, and said that it was “disheartening” that no one had mentioned that at the lengthy hearing.

“No one talks about how these men and women bring toys from their homes and their own children to these facilities so the migrant children will have something to play with,” he said. “No one talks about the sickness of these migrants and how these agents take that sickness home to their own families because of that exposure.”

He asked if any of the critics have attended a burial of a law enforcement agent killed on duty, or consoled a child or spouse of a fallen officer.

“I have…too many times,” he said.

Homan upset Democrats on the panel. Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., denounced what he described as “equivocation” and screamed at Homan when he tried to object.

“You’re not at the border, this is a hearing room, this is my time,” he yelled.

Homan later blasted what he called “political grandstanding” and urged members of Congress to change the law if they don’t like the current law.

“Don’t blame the men and women wearing the uniform doing the best they can, it’s outrageous,” he said. “This is political theater at its best.”

Gentle readers, what you just read in the above article was a man of integrity telling a bunch of professional politicians who have none, “how the cow ate the cabbage”, as we say in Dixie.

Former Director Homan was direct, factual, and unflinching as he carved a path through a bunch of ungrateful House Democrats who could care less about the brave men and women who serve our Sovereign Nation while guarding our Southern Border from those who would enter America illegally.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the useful idiots who have been attacking those who protect and serve us at the Southern Border are not doing so out of concern for those “migrants” who are being processed.

Those “migrants’, whom the Liberals refuse to call by their appropriate description as being ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, are nothing but a means to the end for the Democrats.

They are a political expediency…a way to grow the Democrat Voter Rolls.

Gentle readers, the Democrats really do not care about these “poor separated children”.

If they actually did, they would have protested ATEP under Obama.

Just like Obama used children as human political props after the Sandy Hook Massacre and Democratic Activists have been using children in school walkouts to try to achieve the taking away of guns from Americans, this sudden “concern” over the welfare of the children of those who wish to illegally enter our Sovereign Nation is nothing but a political ploy.

It is a plan born out of a Democratic desperation to avoid a Republican Sweep in the 2020 Presidential Elections by somehow damaging President Trump and, as I wrote earlier, to secure new Democrat Voters.

The last bipartisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform wrangled with the hot topic of Illegal Immigration for six years. President Clinton appointed former congresswoman and Democratic icon Barbara Jordan as its chair. Jordan came from humble beginnings to become a lawyer and the first Southern black woman elected to the House of Representatives. A DEMOCRAT, she was a leader in the civil rights movement, a professor of ethics, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a world-class orator (two of her speeches are considered among the greatest of the 20th century). Her appointment gave the commission instant credibility. According to Jordan, she believed her responsibility as the head of the commission was to restore credibility to the U.S. immigration system. On the issue of illegal immigration, Jordan was very clear and succinct:

Unlawful immigration is unacceptable. Those who should not be here will be required to leave.

I wonder what Rep. Jordan would think of her beloved Democratic Party, now that they have embraced and are not only welcoming that same illegality, which she was so clear about, but championing the “rights” of those illegals while attacking the United States Border Patrol?

I believe that she would have hung her head and wept over her political party having been taken over by a bunch of anti-American Marxists.

Democratic Party Civil War: Pelosi Vs. the Four Horsewomen of the Democrat Apocalypse

July 12, 2019

pelosi-shuts-down-questions-on-feud-with-alexandria-ocasio-cortez

A funny thing happened on the way to Pelosi’s “benevolent dictatorship” in the House of Representatives.

Pelosi is now finding herself and all of the “Old Guard” House Dems being pushed out of political power by 4 first year Congresswomen, anti-Semitic Marxists who have quite literally “come out of nowhere” to take all the air out of the House of Representatives.

And, the “Iron Lady” of the House can not seem to do anything about it.

FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., added to the mounting Democratic criticism of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slamming her “inappropriate” suggestion that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is singling out the New Yorker and her “squad” of fellow freshman because of their race.

Speaking to Fox News on Thursday nice, Clay hammered Ocasio-Cortez’s suggestion.

“It was such a weak argument to say she was being picked on and that four women of color were being picked on by the speaker,” he said.

“It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.

“It is so inappropriate. So uncalled for. It does not do anything to help with unity. It was unfair to Speaker Pelosi.”

Clay continued his broadside, saying the comment exposed how much Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., have to learn when it comes to being “effective legislators”.

“It’s going to take a process of maturing for those freshman members. They will have to learn to be effective legislators,” he said.

“It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that (trope) is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion.”

The lawmaker closed his remarks by suggesting the four freshmen could hurt Democratic chances in upcoming elections.

“It shows they have no sensibility to different members from our caucus. Some come from red districts and those are the ones who gave us the majority. We need them all,” he said.

His comments followed a feud between Pelosi and freshman congresswomen, like Ocasio-Cortez, that involved racially-charged criticism.

Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, previously compared moderate Democrats to racists — prompting Pelosi, at the request of some of her members, to warn House Democrats not to attack each other on Twitter.

“You got a complaint?  You come and talk to me about it.  But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just ok,” she reportedly said. On the same day of that caucus meeting, Ocasio-Cortez called out Pelosi for what she sees as the speaker continually targeting her and other freshmen lawmakers of color.

“Their ignorance is beyond belief,” Clay also said while in the Speaker’s Lobby, according to The Hill.

Clay wasn’t the only one to attack Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday. “The View” hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg criticized her’s and others’ decision to attack Democrats like Pelosi. “I think this is more BS,” Goldberg said of Ocasio-Cortez’s comments on race.

Pelosi, meanwhile, refused to provide further comment on the feud while discussing it during her weekly press briefing.

“I’ve said what I’m going to say…What I said in the caucus yesterday had an overwhelming response from my members,” she said.

“Because they know what the facts are and what we are responding to. We respect the value of every member of our caucus. The diversity of it all is a wonderful thing. Diversity is our strength. Unity is our power.”

Are the rest of the “Moderate Democrats” all bound and gagged and being kept in a bunker somewhere?

Let’s face it, gentle readers.

Methinks San Fran Nan Pelosi doth protest too much.

It is obvious to the entire Free World that Marxism is being fully embraced by the Far Left Democratic Party in the name of “Democratic Socialism”. “Political compromise” took the last plane out of town a long time ago.

Did you know that there is an actual organization named the Democratic Socialists of America?

In a document titled “Where We Stand,” DSA outlines in detail its political perspectives. Here is an excerpt…

“Social redistribution—the shift of wealth and resources from the rich to the rest of society—will require: massive redistribution of income from corporations and the wealthy to wage earners and the poor and the public sector, in order to provide the main source of new funds for social programs, income maintenance and infrastructure rehabilitation, and a massive shift of public resources from the military (the main user of existing discretionary funds) to civilian uses.”
 

Sound hauntingly familiar, “comrades”?

Remember when the Former (Thank God) President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, spoke about “sharing the wealth” to a plumber named Joe during his 2008 Presidential Campaign?

One hundred years ago in Russia, a revolution was based on that very idea.

The unworkable theory that “Democratic Socialism” is based on is known as Marxism.

No government which has taken it as their political philosophy has ever flourished. The government grew and those working within it became rich while the “Proletariat” or average working citizens starved, giving all they had “for the good of the State”.

For quite a while now, I have been referring to those of the Far Left Democratic Party who have been doing every thing they can to disrupt and interfere with the success of President Donald J. Trump and the comeback of the Greatest Country on the face of the Earth, as the “New Bolsheviks”.

To be immodest, it looks like I nailed that one.

And, just like the Czar and the rest of the Russian Leadership back in 1918, Pelosi and the Old Guard of the Democratic Party are so impotent as a result of living off of their decades of political greed and piracy, that the energetic impudence of these “New Bolsheviks” has taken them completely by surprise.

These new “useful idiots” like the Democrats’ “Four Horsewomen of the Democrat Apocalypse” are so “out there” that they have the Old Guard of the Democratic Party running scared, allowing them to run the party and their political campaign strategies for not only the present but the 2020 Presidential Elections as well.

As America has witnessed, the Democratic Party has been moving further and further to the left side of the Political Spectrum for decades now.

So, it is really no surprise that they have become that which they have been whining about for several years: fascists.

But they have not become just any kind of fascists. They have become Marxist Fascists, extolling the “benevolent goodness” of an all-powerful Central Government who will take care of everyone from cradle to grave.

And, those who refuse to give up their individual freedom as guaranteed to us by our Constitution are to be shunned and ridiculed as “intolerant, ignorant hillbillies”.

As I have written before, America is involved in an internal struggle, a much bigger “Civil War”, if you will, for the very soul of our Sovereign Nation.

However, like the Marxists who have declared “war” on America and her citizens before, this new generation of “useful idiots” will find it very hard to win the hearts of average Americans.

For you see, we know Who gave us this country. America was built on a Solid Rock.

24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. – Matthew 7:24-25

And, as I have written previously, the “Democratic Socialists” don’t even know which restroom to use.

Until He Comes,

MS GOP Candidate Tells Female Reporter She Must Bring Male Colleague to Campaign Ride Along Due to “Billy Graham Rule”

July 11, 2019

FoxNews.com reports that

A female reporter in Mississippi is accusing a Republican gubernatorial candidate of sexism after he refused her request to shadow him on the campaign trail.

Rep. Robert Foster’s, R-Hernando, campaign reportedly told Larrison Campbell of Mississippi Today that her presence might stoke speculation about an affair between the two.

Colton Robison, Foster’s campaign director, offered Campbell an opportunity to follow the candidate but said she would need a male colleague accompanying her, she said in an article in her paper Tuesday.

“Perception is everything,” Campbell quoted Robison as saying. “We are so close to the primary. If (trackers) were to get a picture and they put a mailer out, we wouldn’t have time to dispute it. And that’s why we have to be careful.”

According to Campbell, the decision ultimately stemmed from her gender. “The only reason you think that people will think I’m having a (improper) relationship with your candidate is because I am a woman,” she said she told him.

Campbell reported that Robison refused her request even after she offered to wear her press badge in plain view at all times. “But Robison insisted that trackers are trying to get any footage that would make the candidate look bad,” Campbell said.

Both she and her editor “agreed the request was sexist and an unnecessary use of resources given this reporter’s experience covering Mississippi politics.”

Foster defended his decision on Twitter, citing an agreement with his wife to abide by what he called the “Billy Graham Rule.”

“Before our decision to run, my wife and I made a commitment to follow the ‘Billy Graham Rule’, which is to avoid any situation that may evoke suspicion or compromise of our marriage,” he tweeted. “I am sorry Ms. Campbell doesn’t share these views, but my decision was out of respect of my wife.”

During a radio interview, Foster said that he abided by the same rule in his business and that he would rather “be called names by the liberal press than to be put in a situation where it could do damage to my marriage or my family.”

Rep. Foster is not the first Christian Republican Politician to follow the Billy Graham Rule.

Vice-President Mike Pence does, also…and caught a lot of grief from the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media, over it as USA Today reported back in March of 2017.

One line from a Washington Post profile of First Lady Karen Pence is garnering reactions from many on social media.

Ashley Parker’s profile of Indiana’s former First Lady cites a 2002 Mike Pence interview with The Hill. In it, the former Indiana congressman and governor said he never ate alone with a woman other than his wife, Karen. Pence also said he wouldn’t attend an event where alcohol would be served without her by his side.

Evangelist Billy Graham followed a similar rule, not traveling, meeting or eating with another woman alone. It is sometimes referred to as “The Billy Graham Rule.” The practice is still common among many evangelicals.

This 15-year-old paraphrase resurfacing has led to many tweets. A simple search of “Mike Pence” shows some of the reactions. Many question Vice President Pence’s self-control and see the practice as sexist.

This story caught my eye for a couple of reasons.

First, I live in Northwest Mississippi and I happen to have met Rep. Foster’s wife and children. She is a wonderful, gracious lady.

What I have found to be quite revealing is the Main Stream Media’s reaction to both Vice-President Pence and Rep. Foster’s decision to honor their wives.

Today happens to be my wedding anniversary and I would no sooner dishonor my wife than to set my hair on fire and put it out with a hammer.

The ignorance of the MSM as to the reason behind Rev. Graham’s “Rule” illuminates the great disconnect between Modern Liberals and us Christian Conservative Americans here in the Heartland.

When did honoring your wife, as God’s Word tells us to do, become “sexism”?

I suppose it was when Modern American Liberals stopped believing in the Sovereignty of God and started believing in relative morality and situational ethics.

All of the “Smartest People in the Room” love to lecture us “Deplorables” as to how we should treat women, and yet, they were the ones who were caught disrespecting women in the “Me, Too” Movement/Crusade/Purge.

Just ask Matt Lauer, former News anchor for NBC, whose wife filed for divorce after 20 years of marriage yesterday.

Or better yet, Go ask Former President Bill “Bubba” Clinton…while he’s still a free man.

Until He Comes,
