‘What a SLAP in the face’: Brigitte Gabriel and other legal immigrants drop the HAMMER on Dems pushing open borders

Mon, 06/24/2019 - 19:08

LEGAL immigrant Brigitte Gabriel didn’t hold back when tweeting about Democrats who have been pandering to illegal immigrants with promises of open borders and American resources.

I came here the legal way. It cost thousands of dollars and countless hours of my time.

It’s absurd the amount of resources we dedicate to illegal immigrants who come here in violation of our laws.

What a slap in the face.

— Brigitte Gabriel (@ACTBrigitte) June 23, 2019

And this is the biggest argument of all against open borders and amnesty. Legal immigrants came to this country the right way, spending their own time and money to become Americans and Democrats want to ignore all of that so they can bring in a new voter base.

My late wife was a legal immigrant working on her citizenship until cancer took her. Thousands of dollars, and hoops to jump through, to get her to California from the Philippines.

— R.S. Hockett, MBA (@drivn2xl) June 23, 2019

It’s not easy to come here legally, but it’s worth it.

Unless of course, Democrats have their way.

I know the feeling!
I came here legally, countless hours, paperwork, money and stressful times at the embassy in Brazil.
I work, pay my bills and taxes. I don't receive any resource from the government.
Never I could afford to do a MBA.
What a slap for following the law.

— Patya Adkins (@patyadkins) June 23, 2019

My wife also.

— CGNMAN59 (@cgnman59) June 23, 2019

So did my family, and it was not easy for them, and I know several American citizens legal, disabled having trouble getting benefits, that they worked for all live, be fair for all

— kevin flaherty (@YungkKevin) June 23, 2019

My mother came here legally for Germany. And loves this country. She is 82 now. I gave her a MAGA hat the other day and she loved it. Thanks for all those that respect are laws. And welcome.

My husband and I married in Scotland then he had to return back to the USA without me to apply for a spousal visa. I had to go through a full medical, chest X-rays and vaccinations. A terrifying interview and have my entire life under the microscope!!! Then there’s the money!!

— Lynn Smith (@Lynndy36) June 23, 2019

The best person I've ever known immigrated here legally over 60 years ago. She learned to speak English fluently. She embraced this country as her own. She selflessly gave of herself not only to her Church but to many areas in which she could help others. SHE was an asset to USA.

— Kim Barnett (@mizkruznn) June 24, 2019

Bingo.

America is a country of immigrants … legal immigrants and no amount of wordplay, talking points, or fancy marketing from the Left can change that.

BIG, IF TRUE: Trump officials say acting DHS Sec. Kevin McAleenan behind leak of ICE raid details

Mon, 06/24/2019 - 00:28

Wow…wow…wow…

Former and current Trump administration officials are pointing the finger at acting DHS Sec. Kevin McAleenan for leaking details of this weekend’s now-canceled ICE raids to the media:

5 current and former senior administration officials told me today they believe DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan leaked the ICE raids to the media in order to sabotage the operation https://t.co/6lmdCXQkWQ

— Anna Giaritelli (@Anna_Giaritelli) June 23, 2019

BuzzFeed is reporting on this as well:

Two senior administration officials told BuzzFeed News those within the administration believe acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan, or his staff, leaked operational details and that is what ultimately put the ICE operation in jeopardy: https://t.co/DX63DSIi9A

And from DHS? The proverbial crickets:

20 hours later, DHS still silent https://t.co/rumQvojJQL

— Anna Giaritelli (@Anna_Giaritelli) June 23, 2019

On Saturday, former acting director of ICE Tom Homan lit into McAleenan as well:

On Saturday morning's Fox and Friends, Tom Homan went off on acting DHS Sec. Kevin McAleenan accusing him of resisting the ICE raids and alluded that he leaked the information about the raids to The Washington Post pic.twitter.com/ICkQXkGe73

— Ryan James Girdusky (@RyanGirdusky) June 22, 2019

Homan is an important figure because President Trump let slip on “Fox & Friends” last week that he was up for a new position in the administration, possibly Border Czar or something similar:

Mr. President, time to unleash one of those “You’re fired!” in the very near future:

.@realDonaldTrump, find out who leaked the ICE raids, fire them, then prosecute them.

What’s she hiding? Multiple news outlets now investigating Ilhan Omar over possible immigration fraud scheme

Sun, 06/23/2019 - 21:34

Uh oh, Ilhan Omar…

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune — Rep. Ilhan Omar’s hometown newspaper — is starting to dig around those allegations that she married her brother as part of an immigration fraud scheme and “has found new evidence that it could be true”:

BREAKING: The StarTribune, which is left-leaning and endorsed Hillary Clinton, has conducted an investigation into the allegation that Ilhan Omar married her brother and has found new evidence that it could be true. https://t.co/npkpaEgN03

— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) June 23, 2019

From the Star-Tribune:

New investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.

Omar has denied the allegations in the past, dismissing them as “baseless rumors” first raised in an online Somali politics forum and championed by conservative bloggers during her 2016 campaign for the Minnesota House. But she said little then or since about Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, the former husband who swept into her life in 2009 before a 2011 separation.

And Omar is refusing to answer questions to clear up the discrepancy, calling any inquiry into her personal life “illegitimate”:

Sent a list of questions and a request to talk to her siblings and father, Omar declined to do so. Hirsi did not reply to multiple calls, texts and e-mails. Social media posts indicate Elmi is in Africa. He did not respond to multiple e-mails.

Omar’s reticence is consistent with near total silence she has maintained for three years amid questions raised through public records picked over by conservative opinion journalists intent on proving that she committed immigration fraud. Those attacks, she once tweeted, are the provenance of “fake journalists on bigoted blogs.”

Omar spokesman Jeremy Slevin issued a statement Friday asserting that the questions about her personal life are illegitimate:

Separately, the Washington Examiner’s Tiana Lowe was in Omar’s district and here’s what she found:

EXCLUSIVE: I went to Ilhan Omar's district for five days. This is what I found. https://t.co/PrQDwbauZT

— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) June 23, 2019

EXCLUSIVE: Dozens of documents obtained by the Washington Examiner indicate Ilhan Omar lived with Ahmed Hirsi during the years she claimed to be married by law and in faith to Ahmed Elmi. https://t.co/PrQDwbauZT

— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) June 23, 2019

In legal documents, including 24 traffic violations and misdemeanor charges, Hirsi listed his address in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, & 2011 at the same address listed by Omar in 2007, 2009, & 2012.

Omar says she was married to Elmi from 2009 to 2011. https://t.co/PrQDwbauZT

— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) June 23, 2019

Omar & Elmi both listed their address in their marriage application as a home in Columbia Heights. Hirsi, though registered a business to the Minnesota Secretary of State using that as his home address just three months after Omar’s legal marriage to Elmi. https://t.co/PrQDwbauZT

— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) June 23, 2019

Under penalty of perjury, Omar wrote during divorce proceedings that she had not contacted or known the whereabouts of Elmi since the summer of 2011. Elmi’s social media account published by Alpha News show Elmi with Omar's daughter in 2012. https://t.co/PrQDwbauZT

— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) June 23, 2019

We now know that Ilhan Omar attempted to shut down multiple media reports about her marriages during her 2016 campaign. There is evidence that she always lived with Hirsi, and just a single marriage application showing her and Elmi sharing an address. Why? https://t.co/PrQDwbauZT

— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) June 23, 2019

And like with the Star-Tribune, Omar’s is not answering any questions from the Examiner:

While I reported from Minnesota, @johnrobertgage made multiple requests to Omar's office on the Hill for comment. She definitively declined. (And yes, in case you wonder why I disappeared for a week, I was scoping out Ethiopian bars in Minnesota.) https://t.co/PrQDwbauZT

— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) June 23, 2019

BTW, @IlhanMN @Ilhan, feel free to email me and explain why you & your supposed ex-husband reported living together for 2.5 years when you were supposedly married by law and in faith to someone else. tlowe [at] washingtonexaminer [dot] com. https://t.co/PrQDwbauZT

— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) June 23, 2019

Seems like a pretty easy thing to clean up, if, of course, she didn’t marry her brother.

Dan Crenshaw DESTROYS Hillary’s ‘insane gaslighting’ and ‘shameless’ fundraising off of border conditions

Sun, 06/23/2019 - 20:54

As we wrote about earlier, Hillary Clinton has all of a sudden become very sanctimonious about the situation at the southern border.

Dan Crenshaw calls out her hypocrisy as “insane gaslighting.”

What insane gaslighting.

— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) June 23, 2019

And further points out that she’s using her immigration “heartbreak” and “outrage” to fundraise through a Democrat platform.

After blatantly lying, you’re also fundraising for “rights of immigrants” using ActBlue, the Democratic Party fundraising platform, so that donor data is collected for the Democrats.

Absolutely shameless. https://t.co/JUYZda7hJl

Embarrassing: Brian Stelter says we ‘need to talk’ about Trump headlines, and CNN headlines POUNCE

Sun, 06/23/2019 - 20:28

CNN’s Brian Stelter is throwing a fit about news outlets using President Trump’s own words in their headlines about him.

How dare they!

“We need to talk about the problem with headlines,” says @BrianStelter. “We are 2 1/2 years into the Trump presidency and news outlets are still putting Trump’s far-fetched and false assertions right in the headlines and sometimes right on the TV banners.” pic.twitter.com/nfDOH0qrM0

Welp, this really REALLY stinks! Slate has something NEW to blame on the patriarchy and this one’s a DOOZY

Sun, 06/23/2019 - 15:59

Deodorant is a social construct the patriarchy uses to oppress women.

Or something.

Don’t make that face, we didn’t write this nonsense.

Slate did.

Deodorants were created to solve a fake problem and thrived thanks to the patriarchy. https://t.co/fuBEVucSvw

— Slate (@Slate) June 22, 2019

From Slate.com (sorry):

In addition to telling women that the world thought they were totally disgusting, those early ads often did address concerns around the health effects of antiperspirants. Early formulations of antiperspirants were more concentrated, meant to be applied just a few times a week. They probably felt harsher to use, and the concept of stopping sweat was probably also a little plain weird. So, as the ads made an emotional argument for their product, they also appealed to authority and logic. One notes, “Odorono is made from absolutely harmless ingredients, as your physician or any chemist can tell you.” Another Odorono ad includes a short excerpt from a 1915 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association explaining that “no harm comes from stopping the perspiration under the arms.” A one-page ad for a brand called “Nonspi” uses the word safe four times; another for “Veto” boasts its gentleness on skin and clothes with the tagline “Your loveliness is Doubly Safe.” This insistence acted as a guard against an excuse not to buy into a made-up solution to a made-up problem.

Sorry chickie, sweating is gnarly. Especially sweating too much.

This is not a made-up problem.

Gawd’s sake, just buy some damn Sure

‘TDS strikes again’! Journo Howard Fineman OUTRAGED Time Mag put a ‘dictator’ on the cover and ‘kissed his a**’

Sun, 06/23/2019 - 02:51

After President Trump used a joke animation based on an older Time Magazine cover to troll the libs, the magazine thought it was a good idea to remind everybody that it wasn’t the real deal. However, this Time cover is the real deal:

“He’s not pivoting,” said Jared Kushner. “The President is who he is and doesn’t pretend to be anything else.” Our cover story on Trump's wager that his instincts and ability to excite his base will be enough to keep the White House. https://t.co/U6HYfpiLRA pic.twitter.com/g0Hrjasdl4

‘I am a fat woman’: Democrat candidates shock and surprise at Planned Parenthood forum (not really)

Sat, 06/22/2019 - 20:53

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund 2020 Election Membership Forum is being live-streamed on Facebook as we write this post, so there’s still plenty more to come, but the event does give a handful of the Democratic candidates an opportunity to out-do each other on “women’s reproductive rights.”

By now you should know that we hate that “intersectionality” has become a thing; in case you’re new to the term, it’s an academic race to see who is most “marginalized.” For example, of course, a woman in America is oppressed by the patriarchy. But what if you’re a black woman? Then you’re doubly-marginalized and score more points. Even better if you’re an African American trans woman; that hand beats the others.

So while all the Democratic presidential candidates are pro-abortion all the way — even Joe Biden has flipped on his support for the Hyde Amendment — candidates won bonus points for arguing, say, that repealing the Hyde amendment would affect indigenous women the most. And the forum members demanded it.

Another illegal immigrant “living in the shadows.” But what about abortions for illegal immigrants (something that’s already been argued in the courts for illegal immigrant minors coming to the U.S. for an abortion)?

The old joke used to be, “World to end: Women and minorities hardest hit,” but now that doesn’t even cover it. Indigenous women will be hardest hit if the government continues to let taxpayers off the hook for funding other women’s abortions.

So what did our super-woke candidates think?

You can read more about the #JusticeforJane case here. In short, a federal judge ordered that a 17-year-old illegal immigrant in custody be transported to have her abortion “promptly and without delay,” ruling that the teen’s legal status was “irrelevant” and that “she still has constitutional rights” despite being in the country illegally.

Props to Julian Castro for getting right to the intersectionality portion and including trans men among those whose reproductive rights need to be protected:

No surprises there, then: late-term abortion on demand everywhere, no required medical treatment for babies that survive botched abortions, taxpayer-funded abortions, abortions for illegal immigrants, no gag rules, no limits. Pretty sure we’ve settled on our candidate … sorry, Max Boot, we won’t be voting Democrat.

BREAKING: Trump announces delay in deportation process ‘at the request of Democrats’

Sat, 06/22/2019 - 19:26

Liberal politicians around the country, including the mayor of Chicago, had been vowing defiance for when ICE began ramping up apprehensions of people in the U.S. illegally who had already been previously ordered to be deported. This afternoon President Trump announced a delay in the process, saying he wants to discuss it with Congress:

At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border. If not, Deportations start!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2019

Stay tuned.

Update: Nancy Pelosi responded:

Mr. President, delay is welcome. Time is needed for comprehensive immigration reform. Families belong together https://t.co/R9PDrfaKWj

As one national political reporter put it to me: de Blasio is not running a campaign. He is just showing up to events.

— Grace Rauh (@gracerauh) June 22, 2019

A few days ago, de Blasio expressed optimism because the polls showed he’s got “nowhere to go but up.” He’ll be happy to know that still appears to be the case.

Former CNN contributor deletes his Twitter account after calling Jerry Nadler a ‘fat f*ck’

It appears that former Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller has deleted his Twitter account after a series of NSFW tweets directed at Rep. Jerry Nadler over his treatment of Hope Hicks at Thursday’s House hearing:

Kevin McCarthy and Dan Crenshaw clap back at AOC and the ‘concentration camp demagogues’

Fri, 06/21/2019 - 23:12

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called out GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy earlier today, saying he needs to “apologize for aiding and supporting the separation of children from their parents”:

As long as the @GOPLeader supports jailing children and families on the border, I will continue to hold him to account for it.

That’s why I’m calling on Rep. McCarthy to apologize for aiding and supporting the separation of children from their parents.pic.twitter.com/ogHXY7pD3p

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 21, 2019

And that earned the socialist from the Bronx this truth-filled clap back that it’s Dems who have blocked funding for humanitarian aid at the border a staggering 17 times because they won’t compromise with Republicans on wall funding:

You and other Democrats have blocked funding 17 times for humanitarian aid at the border. Want to end the crisis? Fund @HHSGov and #BuildTheWall. https://t.co/WzT5BQhoHr

— Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader) June 21, 2019

Rep. Dan Crenshaw also jumped in, although he didn’t name AOC personally:

If we had a media that did their job, they would ask the ‘concentration camp’ demagogues a very simple question:

“How do you propose we fix this? Why won’t you support the budget request for more resources?”

Or “do you just want open borders?”

— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) June 21, 2019

Exactly. It’s a crisis and Dems need to start working with the GOP to fix it:

“This is like no other crisis that I have seen in my career.” -Carla Provost, Chief of the United States Border Patrol

Tom Arnold is having a meltdown after Michael Moore pointed out Donald Trump’s MASSIVE crowd in Orlando

Fri, 06/21/2019 - 21:33

Michael Moore is sounding the alarm that President Trump’s kickoff rally shows “he hasn’t lost one inch of his fired-up insane base” and “not wanting to see the enormity of the fight ahead doesn’t make it go away”:

I watched the whole thing last night. I know no one wants to waste that kind of time even looking at him, but not wanting to see the enormity of the fight ahead doesn’t make it go away. He hasn’t lost one inch of his fired-up insane base. Are u ready?

Totally BS take contrasting Hope Hicks with Susan McDougall has over 13,000 RTs, including from MSNBC’s Joy Reid

Because the situations are very different: https://t.co/E4ZguQcboq

For starters, a judge sent her to jail and this was because she refused to answer questions in federal court, not in Congress:

This has nearly 12K retweets (including from those who should know better) but is quite false. McDougal was jailed by *a judge*, for refusing to answer questions *in a federal courtroom*. https://t.co/KMy7ZFOk4D

— Alex Griswold (@HashtagGriswold) June 21, 2019

She had also already been found guilty of fraud in conspiracy prior to this. Via Wikipedia:

McDougal was convicted of her role in Whitewater on May 28, 1996, and she was sentenced to spend time in prison for four counts of fraud and conspiracy relating to the Whitewater scandal, but her prison term did not begin until March 7, 1998, as there were other court proceedings.

Joy Reid called it an “excellent question,” because she obviously doesn’t have the computer skills to use Google and find out for herself:

THIS ‘amateur and offensive’ behavior by members of Congress during the Hope Hicks hearing was actually WAY WORSE than what Rep. Nadler did

Fri, 06/21/2019 - 20:53

It wasn’t just Rep. Jerry Nadler who acted like a sexist pig during yesterday’s House hearing with Hope Hicks. According to the transcript, multiple unidentified members of Congress were taking photos of her DURING HER TESTIMONY:

Per the transcript, even members can't resist snapping pics of the glamorous Hope Hicks.

Her lawyer: "Chairman, I think there are a # of people taking pictures… I think it's making the witness uncomfortable."

Nadler: "If people will please refrain from taking pictures."
