Must-read thread drives several stakes through the heart of the pro-open-borders cause

Fri, 06/14/2019 - 18:43

As Twitchy told you yesterday, Alyssa Milano attempted to use the plight of migrant children to argue that pro-lifers need to take their “fake ‘pro-life’ hypocrisy and shove it where the sun don’t shine.” What Alyssa was conveniently ignoring — other than the fact that pro-lifers aren’t trying to murder migrant children — is why those migrant children are in such danger in the first place.

We doubt she’ll take the time to read this thread (she’s got maps to draw and people to threaten, after all), but everyone else definitely should:

Melle Rant: OMG ICE is killing children. We have become sheep that don't look further than the headlines. One Google search, and you can see why people are dying in ICE custody:

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

In March a 10 year old girl with fatal heart problems from El Salvador went into ICE custody. Did ICE let her languish. No, they took her to a hospital where she was immediately given life saving heart surgery. She died because she went into a coma from the surgery.

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

American children die EVERYDAY to things like that; and they that's not after making traveling thousands of mile without food and water in the desert.

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

A 2 year old boy died shortly after ICE released him. Shortly as in after the release, he spent WEEKS in the hospital. ICE isn't killing this children; THEIR PARENTS ARE.

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

Juan de León Gutiérrez, a 16 year old died from a brain infection. Tainted water can cause brain infections & so can untreated sinus problems. These are children who come from poor, unsanitary conditions, but we are all suppose to believe they only become fragile on American soil

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

And of course, 7-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin died of dehydration and shock. Yeah, trekking in the desert without water will do that to you. You expect that ICE can save kids who have suffered years of medical neglect.

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

Let me repeat it for those in the back; it isn't ICE killing these children-IT IS THEIR PARENTS. Americans are spending thousands upon thousands of dollars trying to save children who should have had ongoing treatment.

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

Thousands upon thousands of dollars on kids that can handle starving and being dehydrated for weeks, but yeah let's blame the people who are actually TRYING TO SAVE THEM.

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

If you care, take one (hell take ten) of the unaccompanied minors that are often used by traffickers into your home. Pay for their medical treatment.

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

Isn't that the pro-choice line: If you're pro-immigrant-How many of these kids have YOU ADOPTED??? pic.twitter.com/a7bhc0k7Kq

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

The answer is none. Because to the holier-than-thou pro-open-borders crowd, those innocent migrant children are nothing more than a means to a political end.

Just a small point though, it's not ICE to begin with. It's the Border Patrol who is the agency in question.

— Nickarama (@Nickarama1) June 14, 2019

Very true. My mistake, although it is ICE they want to abolish.

— GOP Pouncer (@Mellecon) June 14, 2019

Exactly. They make no sense.

— Nickarama (@Nickarama1) June 14, 2019

Their arguments aren’t based in logic. And those children who are suffering will continue to suffer as long as do-gooders like Alyssa Milano refuse to acknowledge the root causes of their suffering.

Lefty heads IMPLODE in 3 … 2 … 1: The Babylon Bee’s pick for Trump’s next press secretary breaks Twitter and OMG-LOL

Fri, 06/14/2019 - 18:42

Yeeeeah, we know, it’s The Babylon Bee and they’re totally satire but this is an epic and hilarious idea for Trump’s next press secretary.

Trump Picks Alex Jones As New Press Secretaryhttps://t.co/vaT4MFYp8l

— The Babylon Bee (@TheBabylonBee) June 14, 2019

From The Babylon Bee:

WASHINGTON, D.C.—After Sean Spicer’s abrupt resignation Friday morning, President Donald Trump has chosen InfoWars chief and renowned conspiracy theorist Alex Jones as the new Press Secretary, the White House announced.

The fiery Jones wasted no time getting in front of the cameras, holding his inaugural press conference shortly after the announcement.

“I am the new Press Secretary!” he bellowed in his distinct Texas growl at all the reporters present, occasionally taking a handkerchief out of his pocket to dab perspiration from his red face. “AAAAAaaaaaaAAAAAAHHHHH!” he continued, beating his chest like a gorilla.

Like. A. Gorilla.

‘Damn she’s into the feticide’! Alyssa Milano co-authors handy guide to help Hollywood punish states that pass anti-abortion legislation

Fri, 06/14/2019 - 15:21

If you think Alyssa Milano’s just going to sit idly by and watch states pass laws protecting the unborn, well, you’ve got another thing coming. The mediocre actress-turned-activist is getting hardcore about making sure more women pregnant people can kill their unborn babies. She’s embarking on a cross-country power trip, and she’s hoping the rest of Hollywood will come along for the ride:

Alyssa Milano has created a shoot location tool for filmmakers that lists the status of abortion legislation in all 50 states https://t.co/0a4mAHQVQQ

— Variety (@Variety) June 14, 2019

More from Variety:

“Following the passage of a number of draconian attacks on a pregnant person’s right to choose in 2019, including those in states in which the motion picture and television industries conduct significant business, it has become apparent that those in our industry need to be able to make informed choices,” Milano and activist co-author Ben Jackson said in a mission statement accompanying the report.

The survey, published exclusively with Variety, is meant to help actors, producers, directors and studios decide “where it is safe for women to work.”

“Since [I first became involved in the fight against the Georgia heartbeat bill], I’ve been fielding these inquiries about where productions could shoot,” Milano said of calls and messages she’s received from friends across show business. Her state-by-state document is the result of a month of research, enlisting the National Assn. for the Repeal of Abortion Laws and the political encyclopedia Ballotpedia as primary sources.

Chief among the offerings is a map of the country that color-codes states as “most threatened,” “under threat,” or “least threatened” by restrictive abortion laws.

You’ve got to read the full story. Milano’s basically on a crusade to punish anyone who doesn’t fall into lockstep with pro-aborts and progressivism. The woman’s off her rocker.

Let me get this straight, a woman that claims she did not know you have to file income taxes is now writing legal guides? https://t.co/6QYRq4i0aX

— Mark Young (@MarkYoungTruth) June 14, 2019

Basically, yes.

That little girl who impressed me so on “Who’s the Boss” achieved more than I ever imagined.

Kudos

— Ray Brown (@Raybrown1959Ray) June 14, 2019

Thank you. Means a lot to me.

— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) June 14, 2019

Remember when she was an actress? She wasn’t a very good one, but at least she stuck to what she knew. She’s way out of her depth now.

Now do foreign countries. https://t.co/EOl32CBcAE

— Matthew DesOrmeaux ⚜ (@authoridad) June 14, 2019

Pffft. As if! We all know foreign countries’ highly restrictive anti-abortion laws don’t count, because pro-abort celebs like Alyssa still need places to shoot Lifetime movies and go on vacation.

It's remarkable to me how opposed to liberalism many of those calling themselves liberal have become. "Every view is welcome aside from…any view that disagrees with ours." What a bizarre time we're living in. Now, we have safe spaces for filming too. https://t.co/RuQ60b04S4

OUCH! RNC spox fires back and obliterates DNC War Room’s attempt to troll GOP on Trump’s birthday

‘What bias tho?’ Andrew McCabe’s negative comment about Sarah Sanders cracks up MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace [video]

Thu, 06/13/2019 - 21:58

After it was announced that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will be leaving the Trump administration at the end of the month, former FBI deputy director under James Comey (later acting director), Andrew McCabe, weighed in during an interview with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace:

On MSNBC, Andrew McCabe reacts to Press Secretary Sarah Sanders departure: "I have to say I will not miss her". Nicolle Wallace responds with giddy giggle.

— Caleb Howe (@CalebHowe) June 13, 2019

Here’s video of the exchange:

Former Obama-era intelligence community officials like McCabe, along with James Comey and John Brennan, like to say that Trump’s accusations of bias among them are unfounded and ridiculous, but they counter that almost every time they open their mouths:

What bias tho?

While the DNC’s having to increase their line of credit in preparation for more mounting debt, maybe the Republicans can self-fund off of Democrat backfires. McConnell’s office has sold these anti-socialism “Grim Reaper” shirts on previous occasions but obviously figured Pelosi’s comments helped provide another opportunity to move some updated product based on her “graveyard” comment:

‘Talk about taking foreign help’! Rep. Jim Jordan reminds Dems what happened in 2016 (and the Resistance does NOT like it)

Thu, 06/13/2019 - 18:44

President Trump sparked plenty of backlash after saying he’d consider accepting oppo research on a political opponent if it came from a foreign source. Republican Rep. Jim Jordan told the Dems today to give it a rest and that they’re in no position to jump on the outrage train after what happened in 2016:

Talk about taking foreign help.

Hillary Clinton hired a foreign spy. He talked to Russians and put together an oppo research document. It wasn’t verified, but the FBI used it to spy on the Trump campaign.

— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) June 13, 2019

Attorney General Bill Barr has said he’s digging deeper to find out more details about all this, and Democrats suddenly aren’t fans of full transparency.

So you're saying the condemnation by "genius" @SpeakerPelosi & the #FakeNews should be directed at the Clinton/Obama cabal who actually committed collusion with foreign governments? https://t.co/QXwKOdIw4v

None of this is true. Not even remotely.

FusionGPS hired Steele to start the Dossier.

Steele himself went to the FBI with what he found.

The FBI did not use the Dossier as a basis for any counterintelligence work.

FLASHBACK: Remember when Dems lied about funding the Steele dossier? Here’s a reminder from Maggie Haberman (!!!)

Thu, 06/13/2019 - 18:10

Matt Wolking, Deputy Director of Communications for the Trump campaign, has a brutal reminder for all those libs out there today talking about the Steele dossier today that Dems lied to cover up their involvement with it.

Everybody takes it for granted that the DNC/Hillary paid for the creation of Christopher Steele’s dossier.

But as @maggieNYT reported when that fact finally became public, “Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year.”

Yep:

Everybody takes it for granted that the DNC/Hillary paid for the creation of Christopher Steele's dossier.

— Matt Wolking (@MattWolking) June 13, 2019

And here’s a link to the article:

Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year https://t.co/vXKRV1wRJc

— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) October 24, 2017

From the article:

The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.

Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research.

After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the company in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by an unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC, through the law firm, continued to fund Fusion GPS’s research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.

Fusion GPS gave Steele’s reports and other research documents to Elias, the people familiar with the matter said. It is unclear how or how much of that information was shared with the campaign and the DNC and who in those organizations was aware of the roles of Fusion GPS and Steele. One person close to the matter said the campaign and the DNC were not informed by the law firm of Fusion GPS’s role.

So, libs, please spare us a little of the righteous indignation, ‘eh?

‘Wait, you’re blaming Trump?’ WaPo reporter clarifies ratio’d hot take about oil tankers attacked near Iran

Thu, 06/13/2019 - 17:44

As we told you earlier, two oil tankers were reportedly attacked in the Gulf of Oman near Iran. The Washington Post’s Beirut bureau chief put it this way:

Big escalation in the Persian Gulf. Two oil tankers struck and on fire in the Strait of Hormuz, focus of US-Iran tensions. Comes after Trump failed to heed the last tanker warning & imposed more sanctions https://t.co/zrEiVf5eIK

Twitter clamps down on Project Veritas for alleging that Pinterest smeared and censored Ben Shapiro

Wed, 06/12/2019 - 22:14

As Twitchy told you yesterday, Pinterest recently permanently banned pro-life org LiveAction, citing “harmful misinformation.” Project Veritas reported that Pinterest had also added Pinterest to a “pornography block list.”

Well, apparently Project Veritas went too far for Twitter’s comfort in calling out Pinterest, because their Twitter account’s been limited:

Breaking News: Twitter has decided that investigative journalism is in violation of their terms of service – @Project_Veritas has been temporarily suspended from posting for tweeting internal communications from @Pinterest which show them calling @benshapiro a "white supremacist" pic.twitter.com/eJNDWEfanf

Here’s the thing: If Twitter wants to go after Project Veritas for supposedly violating their “rules,” that’s their prerogative. But once again, they seem to be selectively enforcing their terms of service. And if they do that, their rules effectively mean nothing.

Eric Swalwell is still a member of the 0 percent club according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, but he’s not giving up yet — his mission to take assault weapons off the streets is too important. He made it clear when he announced that gun control was his pet cause, and he made it even clearer that he’d quickly put down any armed rebellion against gun confiscation, even if it took nuclear weapons.

Swalwell’s still sticking to his guns, so to speak, and he told CNN’s S.E. Cupp that as president he won’t be confiscating anyone’s guns, just like he tweeted recently that you can “keep your pistols, keep your shotguns, keep your rifles” under his administration. Does that include semi-automatic pistols and rifles, or are those considered assault weapons? Because those you’re going to have to turn in.

‘Just stop!’ Looks like woke meteorologist Eric Holthaus is a little too woke for his own good

Donald Trump slams the polls, gets an assist from Nate Silver and Howard Dean

Wed, 06/12/2019 - 14:26

President Donald Trump took to Twitter this morning to slam “Fake Polling” and said the “Fake News has never been more dishonest than it is today”:

The Fake News has never been more dishonest than it is today. Thank goodness we can fight back on Social Media. Their new weapon of choice is Fake Polling, sometimes referred to as Suppression Polls (they suppress the numbers). Had it in 2016, but this is worse…..

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 12, 2019

He was especially peeved at the leak of his internal polling data to the media:

…..The Fake (Corrupt) News Media said they had a leak into polling done by my campaign which, by the way and despite the phony and never ending Witch Hunt, are the best numbers WE have ever had. They reported Fake numbers that they made up & don’t even exist. WE WILL WIN AGAIN!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 12, 2019

Here’s what the president is referring to:

May 20 from @politicoalex: "The Trump campaign recently completed a 17-state polling project that concluded the president trails Joe Biden in PA, WI, MI" https://t.co/V2dA1yLCqi
NYT called it "a devastating 17-state poll conducted by his campaign pollster"https://t.co/YP8bqnem3v https://t.co/yg7s6xWO12

— Karen Travers (@karentravers) June 12, 2019

But he is right that relying on the media’s reliance on polls this far out to drive the daily news is bonkers. Here’s an assist from 538’s Nate Siver:

No it's not. General election polls mean next to nothing this far out anyway. And if we don't know what the polls actually said & instead just get some vague characterization of them, readers lack the basic Journalism 101 information to put the story into any meaningful context. https://t.co/tiwL2M5ceC

— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) June 12, 2019

It's June 2019. Campaigns' strategies for which states to compete in next November mean basically nothing right now. And if we don't know what those polls actually said, it's hard to know how much they're driving Trump's behavior, which is famously erratic anyway.

— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) June 12, 2019

And as if on cue, the media is pushing new Quinnipiac numbers that show the president in trouble:

Quinnipiac has more bad polling news for Trump. These are national head-to-heads:

Biden +13
Sanders +9
Harris +8
Warren +7
Buttigieg +5
Booker +5

— Aaron Blake (@AaronBlake) June 11, 2019

We should totally trust Quinnipiac, says Sen. Bill Nelson? Oops:

Bill Nelson leads Rick Scott, 52-46 percent, in Quinnipiac poll https://t.co/dZOwZ1rivz

— Steve Bousquet (@stevebousquet) October 22, 2018

And let’s go back to 2016, shall we?

Your regular reminder that national polls are completely useless. The same Quinnipiac poll had Clinton +7 on Trump a week before Election Day: https://t.co/mkheQ7V5ht

Also Quinnipiac had Clinton +5 in Ohio a week before election (Trump won by 8). https://t.co/G3QryUhusZ https://t.co/VuUXQcQoD1

— Steve Krakauer (@SteveKrak) June 11, 2019

Donald Trump won each of these states, as we know. From Newsweek:

A number of Quinnipiac University polls released on Tuesday also put Clinton ahead in four key swing states. In Florida, Clinton has 46 percent to Trump’s 45 percent; in Ohio she leads by 46 percent to Trump’s 41 percent; and in Pennsylvania she leads Trump 48 percent to 43 percent. In North Carolina, Clinton has 47 percent support to Trump’s 44 percent.

And here’s Howard Dean with a second assist to the president:

Don’t want to rain on your parade but these numbers are irrelevant. The election is 17 months away and national polls are relatively useless since we elect presidents based on state results not national ones. We could be up huge margins inCA and NY and even everywhere else. https://t.co/jqeD7y5Jw5

— Howard Dean (@GovHowardDean) June 12, 2019

Libs don’t believe the polls, why should Trump?

This is the thing about Trump. He has to communicate to his base he’s always winning. So terrible polls for him are fake.
But polls may well close. Do the work now to register new voters and convince people to engage. https://t.co/CNHB5nh5j3

You see, it’s now a “crisis” because it’s happening in their backyard. From the LA Times:

With a historic flow of Central American families fleeing poverty and violence, federal officials earlier this spring began releasing migrants on their own recognizance from inundated detention centers in growing numbers. About 175,000 have left custody since Dec. 21.

Nonprofit and faith-based organizations in Riverside and San Bernardino counties are among those that have stepped in to help the asylum seekers. But the mounting costs have raised doubts — among local officials and advocates alike — about how long they can keep doing so.

Many of the drop-offs have taken place in Blythe, a city of about 20,000 along the Colorado River across from Arizona. Since March, said Riverside County spokeswoman Brooke Federico, 2,600 migrants have arrived here.

You know, this is the “crisis” that even Jeh Johnson was worried about back in 2014 when he put in place punishing detention conditions in an effort to keep migrants from crossing in the first place:

And as for separating families as a "deterrent," the Obama admin put families in detention centers as a "deterrent."

Jeh Johnson on family detention “l believe this is an effective deterrent"

‘Stop digging’: After getting owned by Dan Crenshaw, self-proclaimed ‘fellow patriot’ Wajahat Ali doubles down

Tue, 06/11/2019 - 23:36

Some people never learn.

As Twitchy told you, New York Times op-ed contributor Wajahat Ali thought it would be a good idea to push an easily debunked lie about Dan Crenshaw — and question his patriotism for good measure:

After Crenshaw thoroughly chewed Ali up and spit him out:

Hey “journalist,” maybe you should check your facts. I am a co-sponsor. Nice try though.

Also, “patriotism”: https://t.co/3jSAFc5prw pic.twitter.com/1GURun1cr4

— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) June 11, 2019

Ali deleted his original tweet, replacing it with a half-assed apology:

I deleted this b/c Dan Crenshaw supported the Fund in May after being a holdout. Apologies to him for the tweet. I have no problem admitting it & correcting the record with facts. For those trying to "own" me, especially as you still promote "alternative facts," enjoy Tuesday. pic.twitter.com/njJ9fcNKZK

Don’t worry, Wajahat. We’re enjoying our Tuesday plenty. Because you’ve given us the immense satisfaction that comes with watching you double down on your ignorance and hackery:

Thanks for letting me know. I'm glad you did and I have no problem correcting and updating the record with facts. Now try it with your comments about Ilhan Omar. You'll feel better. Sincerely, a fellow patriot. https://t.co/6bAsYBpxsY

— Wajahat Ali (@WajahatAli) June 11, 2019
