‘Dear Diary’: Giddy Jim Acosta is on the scene to document the latest death blow to the Trump regime [photo]

Thu, 07/04/2019 - 17:19

Hope someone in Jim Acosta’s entourage brought an extra pair of underwear … the bravest of brave firefighters is fixing to soil himself from excitement:

Tucson CBP Sector chief pushes back against AOC’s attempts to shame Border Patrol [video]

Thu, 07/04/2019 - 17:01

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has spent most of her highly valuable time this week painting CBP officers with a broad brush, accusing them of abusing detainees, forcing them to drink from toilets, and withholding basic necessities (not to mention physically and sexually threatening her). She has thus far failed to present any compelling evidence to substantiate her claims, so while she looks for some, Tucson Border Patrol Sector Chief Agent Roy Villareal would like to present some evidence that AOC is full of it:

Here is a look at the inside of a #BorderPatrol processing center with Chief Patrol Agent of #TucsonSector Roy Villareal @CBP pic.twitter.com/vu1dyV72Uz

— CBP Arizona (@CBPArizona) July 4, 2019

Doesn’t exactly look like a “concentration camp,” does it?

Your supply closet looks large enough to handle a small preschool, not hundreds of human being.

— Bad Wolf (@MariaLaGuera742) July 4, 2019

Well, these facilities weren’t meant to handle the number of people CBP is currently trying to process. Policies like the ones AOC has been advocating have contributed directly to overcrowding. AOC voted against funding that would allow CBP to purchase more supplies, and encouraged Wayfair employees to stop manufacturing beds for migrant children. So if nothing else, she’s given CBP agent like Roy Villareal plenty to push back against.

AOC lied. Again.

Imagine my shock. https://t.co/Gf1FOCfOau

— The Red-Headed Libertarian (@TRHLofficial) July 4, 2019

It’s possible that conditions at the Tucson facility are not representative of those across all detention facilities along the southern border. But it does seem fair to say that AOC was wrong and dishonest to smear CBP as a whole. There are bound to be some bad apples in the bunch, but it’s unfair to smear them all as racist terrorists when so many of them are just trying to do their jobs under such extraordinary and difficult circumstances.

‘WOW!’ Somehow a fire started near a fireworks store in S. Carolina (Guess what happened next) [video]

Thu, 07/04/2019 - 16:58

Firefighters in one South Carolina town found themselves with a unique challenge after a fire outside a fireworks store ignited the contents of a storage container. The result was quite a sight:

‘Cocaine Mitch is trolling’: Sen. McConnell’s ‘Happy Fourth of July’ photo is guaranteed to spark head explosions

‘False equivalence’: Dem Sen. Chris Murphy is honest about wanting open borders — but very dishonest about why

Thu, 07/04/2019 - 16:14

Democrats don’t want open borders! Except when they do. It looks like Democratic Senator Chris Murphy is all in for open borders now, and he’s citing historical precedent to back him up:

As you celebrate the 4th, remember that many of us are here (including me) bc up until 100 years ago, America essentially had open borders. My ancestors fled poverty in Europe and showed up here unannounced. They weren’t locked in cages, they were welcomed by a generous nation.

— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) July 4, 2019

“Essentially had open borders.” News to us.

Open borders? Really bro? What the hell?

— Levim429 (@levim429) July 4, 2019

So, for those of you keeping score at home, not only is he advocating for open borders, but he’s doing so disingenuously.

Actually they probably went under a rigorous health screening to make sure they weren’t bringing diseases in. Then they were probably asked what kind of trade or skill they were bringing to the country.

— shredmasterdan (@shredmasterdan) July 4, 2019

My guess is that your ancestors came through ports of entry like Boston or Ellis Island Followed a legal process

— Karen (@1morecomment) July 4, 2019

I am not here because of open borders. In here because my great grand parents came legally.

— MZych (@mdzych864) July 4, 2019

Uhh, Chris, plenty of immigrants then were detained and plenty were sent home https://t.co/wkehp8s1Jk

— CTIronman (@CTIronman) July 4, 2019

That's a nice warm fuzzy tweet Senator, but 100 years ago we didn't have Taxpayer funded welfare state. Great grand-papa Murphy was probably working the day he got out of quarantine (detention) on Ellis Island and I'm sure the ship he arrived on was expected. #incapableoftruth

— Early CT Tomatoes (@Mowkillnotill) July 4, 2019

Did they come through a port of entry and get documented or sneak in?

You use qualifier “essentially”

Borders were not “open” in the sense meant by leftists; your ancestors didn’t cross in the manner of those being detained.

False equivalence, another hallmark of D narrative

— Mike (@msw333) July 4, 2019

This country has never had open borders. Immigrants followed the visa rules and came here legally. You should be supporting the current laws or change the law if you don’t like it. You are a disgrace to the senate CT and the nation.

More from CBS Dallas:

An Army soldier is being honored in Haslet as a teenager mowed his father’s front lawn into an American Flag pattern.

Cameron James, 17, said he mowed the pattern in honor of Army Pfc. Kevin Christian, who died in June by suicide while deployed along the Arizona-Mexico border. James and Christian knew each other during their time in the Boy Scouts.

“He was just a role model for me,” James said. “So I wanted to make sure he was missed by even the people who didn’t know him.”

Nike probably should have never put that Betsy Ross flag on shoes made in China in the first place, but they certainly should never have pulled them because Kaepernick told them to. More lawn flags, fewer shoe flags, please.

There’s a VILE new conspiracy theory flying around that’s being used to justify the attack on Andy Ngo 

Thu, 07/04/2019 - 11:27

Claire Lehmann, founder of Quillette, took to Twitter on Tuesday night to debunk a conspiracy theory that’s taken hold that suggests Andy Ngo has been doxxing journalists which put them in danger and this somehow justified the assault on him last week.

At the heart of the totally BS theory is a piece Quillete published on the “cosy relationship between journalists for places such as the @guardian and @HuffPost and Antifa”:

A month ago we published a piece at @Quillette scrutinising the cosy relationship between journalists for places such as the @guardian and @HuffPost and Antifa. We alleged that some journalists are, in fact, cheerleaders for this group. This piece was NOT written by @MrAndyNgo 1/

— Claire Lehmann (@clairlemon) July 2, 2019

People hated it, but show us where it was wrong please:

The piece has been heavily scrutinised but as yet no-one has pointed to facts of error which require correction. The relationship between Antifa & journalists is a matter of public interest & the description of some as ‘cheerleaders’ is fair comment https://t.co/ExCFQq8491

— Claire Lehmann (@clairlemon) July 2, 2019

Now, here’s where the conspiracy theory gains steam. Antifa has been linking the article to a “kill list” that nobody will show Lehmann. How convenient:

This piece has been blamed for an alleged “kill list” which targets these journalists. I have asked for evidence of this list exists but no-one can provide me with evidence that it does. For all I know, the list is a fiction. 3/ https://t.co/R4ledNA4zN

— Claire Lehmann (@clairlemon) July 2, 2019

The only person on a “kill list” seems to be Andy Ngo:

What we do know is that it has been a month since we published that piece on Antifa & journalists & only one journalist has suffered an assault Only one person has been hospitalised with a brain haemorrhage. And that is our editor @MrAndyNgo. 4/

— Claire Lehmann (@clairlemon) July 2, 2019

Now listen to Mr. Polar Fleece talking about how it’s morally right to beat Ngo over the article that didn’t doxx journos that Ngo didn’t even write:

There is now a conspiracy theory circulating Portland that attributes the authorship of our Antifa piece to @MrAndyNgo, and the piece being described as a “doxxing” which, of course, it is not. This is being used to legitimatise the assault on Andy. pic.twitter.com/wrA58hn9m0

— Claire Lehmann (@clairlemon) July 2, 2019

Try again, Antifa:

I want to reiterate: @MrAndyNgo did NOT write our piece scrutinising Antifa-sympathetic journalists. The piece stands alone separate to Andy’s photojournalism. @Quillette has NOT doxxed any journalists. Describing some journalists as cheerleaders for Antifa is fair comment. /End

‘Woke Twitter reports’: Rolling Stone beclowns themselves with piece explaining how Betsy Ross flag is a symbol of white supremacy

Wed, 07/03/2019 - 22:05

If there’s one thing in this world of which we can be certain, it’s that things can always — always — get stupider. The current debate (if you can even call it that, since only woke lefties are upset) over the Betsy Ross flag is proof of that. Democratic politicians and liberal talking heads who never had a beef with the flag are suddenly spouting off about how problematic it is. But according to VICE, it’s Republicans who are losing it:

As you can see, the main percentage-getters are Biden, Sanders, Harris, Warren, Buttigieg and a few others.

But as we know, there are a TON of D’s running this time around.

Many of those who showed up as an asterisk or 0 in all three polls are lesser-known names, but among those who did was NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and California Rep. Eric Swalwell.

In Gillibrand’s case, the desperation could be further indicated by her latest stunt — one lucky donor gets to have whiskey with her.

It’s Ilhan Omar’s turn to slime CBP officers with unsubstantiated — and outrageous — claims [video]

Wed, 07/03/2019 - 20:59

Nothing to see here, just Ilhan Omar picking up some of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s slack and spewing unsubstantiated BS about Border Patrol officers:

Ilhan Omar demonizes CBP officers, says it's time to talk about "eliminating their existence"

Omar says CBP officers have "certain views on what black or brown people deserve"

We’ll give Omar the benefit of the doubt when it comes to “eliminating [CBP officers’] existence,” as based on her ensuing remarks, she may be suggesting that we eliminate the need for CBP officers. Which, given the current situation, is not only unfeasible, but also unwise. We won’t, however, excuse the broad brushstrokes and unsubstantiated claims she’s using to smear CBP as a whole, or her unwillingness to acknowledge that detained adult migrants are here because they chose to be, or her and the Democrats’ role in worsening the situation. And we definitely won’t excuse her moral preening about what it means to be an American given the decidedly un-American manner in which she’s conducted herself.

And the fact that she’s having this “conversation” with notorious bigot and anti-Semite Marc Lamont Hill? Just icing on the cake.

EXACTLY! Kamala Harris just unintentionally showed the sheer LUNACY of open borders policies with her census take

Wed, 07/03/2019 - 20:45

Welcome to President Kamala Harris’ (very hypothetical) America, in which the U.S. census counts … well … everyone.

This is good news. Everyone, without exception, will be counted in the 2020 U.S. Census.https://t.co/gXl3qQaRGs

— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) July 3, 2019

“Everyone, without exception.”

People who are not legal U.S. citizens will be counted in the U.S. census. How does this make sense to anyone? https://t.co/RpMM6bwS7z

— Seth Nicolette (@NicoletteSeth) July 3, 2019

A citizenship question isnt that huge of a deal.

Frankly, if you arent a citizen, you shouldnt be counted because you cant vote nor should you be able to vote if you arent a citizen. https://t.co/c4zG9or9Wv

— BurgSkeletal (@BurgSkeletal) July 3, 2019

No question on the census? I won't fill it out.
This is about America, no one else.#BoycottCensus https://t.co/bA4pZSYwEz

— LilMissRett (@DeplorableRett) July 3, 2019

Harris has just illustrated the sheer absurdity of open borders policy.

If you have a census and count “everyone,” the question of where it stops answers itself … it stops nowhere; there is no established limit.

Whether intended or not, counting the entire world is what Sen. Harris is advocating.

‘WTF’? New Republic’s scenario about ‘the antifa left’ and how Trump could remain in power if he loses in 2020 is ‘delusional’

Wed, 07/03/2019 - 20:42

Antifa has been in the news lately, as of course has talk about the 2020 election, so why not combine the two issues and turn them into another warning about what happens if Trump loses in 2020 but won’t go:

MUST-READ THREAD: Seth Mandel very calmly and rationally EVISCERATES AOC over her Holocaust rhetoric

Wed, 07/03/2019 - 17:07

The Washington Examiner’s Seth Mandel penned this 14-tweet thread last night that calmly and rationally totally eviscerated Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over the use of “Never Again” and “concentration camps” to describe what’s going on at the southern border.

THREAD:

Good thread delineating exactly why @AOC is so vile. https://t.co/6davYMxdAd

— Nick Searcy, INTERNATIONAL FILM & TELEVISION STAR (@yesnicksearcy) July 3, 2019

2. I think that’s what caught AOC so off guard. She was used to Democrats comparing Republicans to Nazis her entire adult life (mine too), so she feels like she’s being targeted here because of who she is, not what she said. I get it. But it’s wrong. Here’s why.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

3. It’s because she made the second kind of Nazi comparison: that which compares victims. And here’s where you get into trouble. We carry around the stories and scars of what happened to our family. It’s recent, the wounds are still fresh, and it’s all very real.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

4. Years ago I accompanied a survivor of Majdanek on her first time back at Majdanek. I’ve stood in front of the ash pit with ppl who were supposed to end up in it. Looked at the shoes of ppl who weren’t as lucky as to survive—knowing their friends and relatives were among them.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

5. When you say “Trump is a fascist” you’re insulting Trump. When you equate a migrant holding facility, of ppl trying to get in to this country (because it’s not actually a totalitarian hellstate), with Auschwitz, you’re minimizing and erasing our suffering and trauma.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

6. That’s why there was the reaction to her saying “Never Again.” Despite all the gaslighting, no she wasn’t talking about the Boer War, you dopey stenographers. If she wanted to make the comparison about FDR, she would have. Stop it.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

7. This is why the peerless Holocaust historian Deborah Lipstadt pushed back so hard. Jewish suffering *and* our very slogan of survival were being appropriated for cheap political point scoring. The comparison is utterly nonsensical.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

8. Now, in a normal situation, a person who actually cared about protecting minorities and being an “ally” would say: “Ah, I didn’t realize the pain this would cause the Jewish community. I didn’t intend that, and I don’t deserve to be demonized, but I certainly will stop it.”

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

9. Instead, she went jury shopping! She presented herself as the true victim and she went looking for Jews or historians who would support her. I can’t quite wrap my head around how bonkers this behavior is for an adult.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

10. “But this Jew over here says it’s fine” is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. You have this outpouring of pained outrage, and all she cared about was justifying herself at their expense. The bad faith here is mindboggling.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

11. It’s just amazing to me to see this. Ppl in large numbers say they’re deeply pained by what she’s saying because of their personal experiences. Her response is “but this person here isn’t upset by it.”

Ahem. So what? Like I said, completely bonkers.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

12. She genuinely doesn’t care who she steps on on her way up. It’s pathological. And the ppl saying “oh you’re playing semantics when ppl are suffering.” What have you become? How did politics so thoroughly rot your soul? I don’t have the time or patience for it.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

13. The heartlessness is astounding. Not to mention that the “why are you talking about this when I want you to talk about that” is among the most obnoxious ways to use this site. My god the entitlement.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) July 3, 2019

14. Anyway, point is that this is what’s going on, and AOC has been made aware of it, and continues anyway. It’s a free country, she’s free to do so. But at this point she has made clear she’s doing it intentionally. Make of that what you will. /fin

This must-read thread from Brandon Darby exposes the glaring hypocrisy of Joaquin Castro and other Dems on migrant detention facilities

Tue, 07/02/2019 - 18:03

Breitbart’s Brandon Darby posted this must-read thread comparing photos taken by Rep. Joaquin Castro yesterday with photos he took of migrant detention facilities in 2014 during the Obama administration.

Darby asks, “Why weren’t they mad then? Strange.” Yes . . . strange:

‘What’s going on here?!’ Brandon Darby DROPS Brian Stelter for airing deliberately edited video of Antifa attacking Andy Ngo

Mon, 07/01/2019 - 13:39

Would appear CNN’s Brian Stelter aired an obviously edited video of the Antifa attack on Andy Ngo, magically making the punches and kicks disappear and ultimately ‘hiding’ the actual violence of the assault.

If you only saw CNN’s footage you’d think Ngo was just ‘silly-stringed’ and had regular milkshakes thrown at him.

Brandon Darby ‘politely’ asked Brian about it …

Respectfully, @brianstelter, why did you edit out the part where Antifa punched and kicked the journalist? What’s going on here? https://t.co/pLZMEDrdMX

— Brandon Darby (@brandondarby) June 30, 2019

Brian does say it’s unacceptable, period, but he really did Ngo a disservice by not showing what he actually went through. Not to mention his dig about how ‘others’ have accused Ngo of trying to cause trouble.

Dude, c’mon, be better.

CNN Created Antifa when it first began attacking kids on college campuses CNN promoted them and praised in some intances.

It is SO ON! Quillette founder Claire Lehman throws DOWN defending Andy Ngo and her outlet from blue-check jagoff

Mon, 07/01/2019 - 13:07

As Twitchy reported earlier, Snopes well and truly screwed the proverbial pooch with their summation of what happened to Andy Ngo, going so far as to call his outlet, Quillette, a ‘conservative website’.

Anyone with at least half a brain knows Quillette is hardly a conservative site.

Granted, Snopes may well have less than half a brain but we digress.

Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo), who describes himself as an editor at the conservative website @Quillette and says he is “hated by antifa,” said he was attacked by anti-fascist protesters and had to be taken to the hospital to treat injuries to his face and head. https://t.co/AEj0YhDo0y

— snopes.com (@snopes) June 30, 2019

Quillette founder, Claire Lehman, called Snopes out:

Wtf kind of fact checking is this? Andy Ngo is indeed an editor with us, he is a journalist. And no @Quillette is not “conservative,” we are all political moderates of a liberal centrist persuasion https://t.co/spgtyII6SM

— Claire Lehmann (@clairlemon) June 30, 2019

And then for whatever reason, David Rothschild (a so-called economist) decided it was necessary to chime in and make a complete and total tool of himself. Yes, we meant to write tool.

1) Bad for people to attack journalists, regardless of their political agenda.

2) @Quillette is basically the literary wing of @TPUSA: all about silencing free speech by pushing for false equivalency for right-wing AND silencing progressive conversation. https://t.co/rCkmcI3Jeb

Dude.

Clueless.

Don’t try to caricature us with your crude partisan talking points. The founder of @Quillette (me) is Australian & our senior editors are British & Canadian respectively. Your 2 dimensional political prism doesn’t work on us https://t.co/cyQPedaEpn

DRAAAAAG HIM Claire!

Top articles @Quillette (after story about their editor getting attacked): condemning Eastern European migration to Western Europe, attacking #MeToo, attacking MLK for rape, anti-PC story, fawning piece on Teresa May. High brow right-wing dedicated to squashing progressive speech

— David Rothschild (@DavMicRot) June 30, 2019

You know this guy is a blast at birthday parties.

You’re wrong, and embarrassingly ignorant about who we are and what we do.

— Claire Lehmann (@clairlemon) June 30, 2019

Embarrassingly so.

Very impressive army you got here! But, does not change the fact your publication is devoted to right-wing victimhood from left-wing speech. You are attempting to take down left-wing thought or force false promotion of right-wing thought (false equivalency).

— David Rothschild (@DavMicRot) June 30, 2019

What an a-hole, right?

Sorry, a clueless a-hole.

We have seen more disgusting, smug, foul people on the Left in the last two days than we have since Trump destroyed Hillary in 2016. The number of people claiming Andy had it coming, claiming he’s not a journalist and accusing of him being a Nazi … shockingly horrible.

And for us to be shocked these days is really something.

In a free an open society Quillette Turning Point USA, Breitbart, etc have every right to exist and form a meaningful part of the conversation. And, I appreciate your more high-brow writing and style. But, that does not alter the ultimate substance and goal of your work.

— David Rothschild (@DavMicRot) June 30, 2019

‘The biggest moment’: Lefties are NOT pleased with ABC for how they described Trump’s visit to the DMZ

Of course, it was “sheer performance,” whatever that is supposed to mean.
