Dem candidate who wants zero ‘restrictions’ on abortion declares that children ‘ought to have nothing to fear’ from the U.S.

Sun, 04/14/2019 - 20:49

South Bend (Indiana) Mayor Pete Buttigieg officially announced his candidacy for president on Sunday.

Among the many things he is basing his campaign on, one is declaring that children have nothing to fear in the United States.

Mayor @PeteButtigieg: "Children fleeing violence ought to have nothing to fear from the greatest country in the world.'" https://t.co/SwSAgru9Qk pic.twitter.com/2NZ9lWMNDC

— The Hill (@thehill) April 14, 2019

He is, of course, attempting to take a jab at President Trump’s immigration policy, insinuating that somehow children fleeing violence have to “fear” the U.S.

The U.S. should have "nothing to fear from children fleeing violence," Buttigieg says in nod to Trump's family separation policy, and those children should have nothing to fear from the U.S.

— Felicia Sonmez (@feliciasonmez) April 14, 2019

But what about children who don’t have the opportunity to “flee” and even those who are just born?

Democrat Pete Buttigieg supports full-term abortion

SCARBOROUGH: “Do you support the late-term abortion legislation that was passed in the NY state legislature, as well as in VA?”

BUTTIGIEG: “I don’t think we need more restrictions right now”

Only 13% of America supports this pic.twitter.com/dbaLee1N8z

— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) April 7, 2019

He is right in saying that children ought to have nothing to fear in the U.S.

Too bad he and his party don’t agree.

It’s, like, her OWN words: Pelosi demands that Trump take down ‘dangerous’ video of Ilhan Omar disrespecting 9/11

Sun, 04/14/2019 - 20:02

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling on President Trump to take down a “dangerous” video juxtaposing Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments about 9/11 and footage of the tragedy taking place.

.@realDonaldTrump’s dangerous video must be taken down. I have spoken with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Rep. @Ilhan Omar, her family & her staff. They will continue to monitor & address the threats she faces. pic.twitter.com/Grb9c8S18d

— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) April 14, 2019

The video features Omar, a member of Pelosi’s caucus, referring to 9/11 as “something that happened.”

JUST IN: Speaker Pelosi says President Trump "must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video" featuring Rep. Omar, and she has spoken with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Rep. Omar, her family and her staff.

— NBC News (@NBCNews) April 14, 2019

“Disrespectful and dangerous” (Pelosi’s words) is actually a good way to characterize what Omar said.

"Dangerous video" of herself, speaking. https://t.co/YHwCBF9feh

— Amanda House (@AmandaLeeHouse) April 14, 2019

This follows a statement from Pelosi on Saturday in which she decried the video.

Not to be redundant, but the video is of Omar saying words … like, out of her own mouth.

How is a video that accurately quotes someone "hateful" and "dangerous"?

Apparently, it's now racist & 'inciting violence' to hold Democrats to account for their own stupid statements.

How convenient for them. https://t.co/LKy1UcVqXZ

— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 14, 2019

This is a result of Democrat leadership being unwilling to censure Omar for her anti-Israel and anti-Semitic rhetoric when they had the opportunity.

Now they have to own it.

Ratio alert! KC paper’s spin for attack on Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles takes victim-blaming to the next level

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 17:51

As we told you yesterday, the Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles was hosted by YAF at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, where he delivered a speech entitled “Men are Not Women.” In addition to facing hecklers, Knowles was hit by a substance thrown by a masked protester that was believed to be bleach at the time.

University of Missouri-Kansas City’s response to the incident sent a lot of eyes rolling, and the local paper, the Kansas City Star, chased that by serving up this headline:

Protester at right-wing UMKC event arrested, but was speaker hoping for a disruption? https://t.co/mYl3i3c3DU

CALIFORNIA BOUND? Trump doubles down on proposal to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities [video]

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 02:05

President Donald Trump doubled down on potentially sending asylum seekers to sanctuary cities while they await a hearing, saying in the Oval Office today that the U.S. can send states like California “an unlimited supply — and let’s see if they’re so happy”:

President Trump: "California certainly is always saying, 'Oh we want more people,' and they want more people in their sanctuary cities. Well, we'll give them more people. We can give them a lot. We can give them an unlimited supply — and let's see if they're so happy." pic.twitter.com/veO3Hl0X9G

— The Hill (@thehill) April 12, 2019

If you have the time, here are his full remark which are well worth a watch:

“We are giving very strong consideration to having people, after a 20 day period–because legally we’re not allowed to hold them for more than that–we will move them to sanctuary cities.”

“We are giving very strong consideration to having people, after a 20 day period–because legally we’re not allowed to hold them for more than that–we will move them to sanctuary cities.” -President Trump on plan to release immigrants in DHS custody in sanctuary cities. pic.twitter.com/XYa6b7bCg0

— CSPAN (@cspan) April 12, 2019

Earlier in the day, the White House first pushed back on media reports of this proposal but then seemed to embrace it after the president confirmed the stories in a series of tweets:

Statement A was coming from the WH press office just before his let's-dump-migrants-in-sanctuary-cities tweet.

Statement B is the new and improved WH press office statement, released shortly afterward. pic.twitter.com/sNP0UroS6Z

But it’s not sure if DHS is really going to take this seriously:

And according to media reporting, DHS pushed back against Trump earlier this year when this came up before:

In February, according to documents obtained by CNN, the general counsel for DHS told WH in writing that such a move could only be done if there was a "strong, mission-related rationale" pertaining to the responsibilities of DHS, per ⁦@jaketapperhttps://t.co/bEyyakmbcl

WATCH: A security guard almost took out Tiger Woods at The Masters

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 01:51

Tiger Woods had a major scare on the 14th hole today of The Masters tournament after a security guard slipped on the grass as he attempted to get the crowd to move off the fairway and made contact with Tiger’s right ankle:

Ted Lieu warns Trump of impeachment over comments the media says were ‘possibly a joke’

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 01:18

CNN’s Jake Tapper is reporting tonight that during a trip to the border last week, President Trump told then CBP head Kevin McAleenan (now acting DHS secretary) that he should close the border to asylum seekers and if he got in legal trouble over it, the president would pardon him:

BREAKING: In Calexico, CA last week, where POTUS told border agents to block asylum-seekers from entering the US contrary to law, Trump told CBP head McAleenan if he were sent to jail as a result, the president would pardon him, 2 Sr admin officials tell me.

More on @CNN

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) April 12, 2019

Nobody who heard the conversation seems to know if the president was serious or not:

2/ Officials briefed on the convo say they don’t know if POTUS was joking or serious. WH referred me to DHS, DHS spox says: “At no time has the President indicated, asked, directed or pressured the Acting Secretary to do anything illegal…

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) April 12, 2019

3/ ”…Nor would the Acting Secretary take actions that are not in accordance with our responsibility to enforce the law.”

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) April 12, 2019

The New York Times also reported the news, again stressing that the remarks were “possibly a joke”:

As @jaketapper reported earlier, Trump told McAleenan to ignore Nielsen and said he'd pardon him if anything happened. The remarks, possibly a joke, still alarmed DHS officials @anniekarni @EricSchmittNYT @KannoYoungs me https://t.co/rcxD27XI5a

— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) April 12, 2019

This possible “joke” is now the story of the night:

"[Trump] was chaffing against Nielsen’s advice that he can’t shut the border because it could be considered illegal, and he turned to her replacement… and said to him ‘Just do it , if there’s a problem with the legality, I’ll pardon you’" – @anniekarni w/ @NicolleDWallace pic.twitter.com/f9yJGFjYmO

— Deadline White House (@DeadlineWH) April 12, 2019

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) even threatened impeachment over it:

Dear @realDonaldTrump: Dude, you can't tell a federal employees to violate the law and then say you will issue a pardon. That's the kind of stuff that can get you impeached.

Also, why are you trying to eliminate pre-existing conditions health care coverage? https://t.co/DXbesW0xUm

— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) April 12, 2019

Former Obama staffer Dan Pfeifer concurs:

A President instructing a subordinate to break the law with the promise of a pardon is a textbook example of an impeachable offense and should be the biggest story in the country for months. https://t.co/1JXU9t9Nd2

— Dan Pfeiffer (@danpfeiffer) April 12, 2019

Rep. Adam Schiff called on Republicans to say something about the possible joke:

Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio after he was found in contempt for his violation of immigration laws.

Now Trump reportedly promised a pardon to the Customs and Border Partrol head if he violated the law at Trump’s urging.

The rule of law is withering away, and the GOP says nothing. https://t.co/cOBfNsN9D4

— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) April 12, 2019

And it looks like Acting DHS Sec. McAleenan will eventually have to answer questions about it:

As Acting DHS Secretary, Kevin McAleenan will eventually have to come testify before @HomelandDems.

And you can bet I will ask him about this incident. https://t.co/byixW7hzcL

Apparently Joaquin Phoenix didn’t like the biblical version of Jesus healing a blind man so he just changed it in his new film

Fri, 04/12/2019 - 20:51

According to CNN, “there was one thing” actor Joaquin Phoenix “would not do” as he prepped for the role of Jesus in the upcoming film, “Mary Magdalene.”

When Joaquin Phoenix took on the role of Jesus in the new film "Mary Magdalene," he did many of the expected things: Grew long hair, adopted an intense and otherworldly stare, even meditated on a mountaintop.

But there was one thing he would not do. https://t.co/GCOK2dNoun

— CNN (@CNN) April 12, 2019

And apparently that “one thing” was to not stick to the Bible’s version of events. You see, the fact that Jesus used mud or clay to heal restore a blind man’s sight. Phoenix decided Jesus would use his own saliva instead. And, oh . . . the man in the Bible is a woman in the film.

From CNN:

But there was one thing he would not do.

Near the beginning of “Mary Magdalene,” which opened Friday in the United States, the script called for Jesus to heal a blind woman by rubbing mud in her eyes, an echo of John’s Gospel. (It’s a blind man in the Bible, a blind woman in the film.)

“I knew about that scene from the Bible, but I guess I had never really considered it,” Phoenix told CNN in a recent interview.

“When I got there, I thought: I’m not going to rub dirt in her eyes. Who the f*!# would do that? It doesn’t make any sense. That is a horrible introduction to seeing.”

The Bible doesn’t fully explain why Jesus used mud or clay to heal the blind, though some experts say it was a common practice among first-century healers.

In “Mary Magdalene,” Phoenix decided to go with his gut, licking a mudless thumb and gently rubbing the woman’s eyes.

Sure, let’s trust Phoenix’s gut and not what’s actually written in the Bible. That makes perfect sense.

Kamala Harris admits she’s one of those paranoid gun nuts who’ll likely shoot herself if attacked

Thu, 04/11/2019 - 23:56

As Twitchy reported, the Washington Post’s Matt Viser gave the 2020 Democratic field a little boost with Republicans on the fence about Donald Trump by revealing how many of them were gun owners too. Not NRA members, for goodness sake — that’s a terrorist organization that needs to be “taken down” according to her close pal Cory Booker — but law-abiding gun owners, even if some of the guns were inoperable antiques.

Among those gun owners was Kamala Harris, which isn’t surprising considering her former career. However, on Thursday she said she owns a gun for personal protection. Wonder if it’s one of those semi-automatics that gun grabbers want to outlaw?

But … we’ve been assured by “common sense” gun control groups for years that 1) white suburban men only buy guns to make up for shortcomings in their trousers, and 2) women especially are a million more times likely to shoot themselves if attacked rather than their attacker. Chicks just can’t handle a gun, you know?

It seems Harris is trying to have it both ways; she’s for gun control, but she understands the desire to have a firearm for self-defense. Good luck selling that on the campaign trail.

— Iowa Starting Line (@IAStartingLine) April 11, 2019

Yeah, we’re not buying it. If Harris expects to attract the far-left progressives whose votes she desperately needs, she’s going to have to explain exactly what that middle ground is between respecting the Second Amendment and gun confiscation, Eric Swalwell style.

Welp, her political career as a Democrat is done.

Hey, let’s give her a chance … when is one of the Democratic candidates going to find the guts to go up against well-funded special interest groups like Moms Demand and Everytown for Gun Safety? Maybe Harris will debate Shannon Watts on CNN or something.

Quick do a check. My money is on she has either "illegal" ammunition, "illegal" high capacity magazines, or at the very least we'll find she skirted the required classes/paperwork needed to possess a firearm. As Broadway Joe once said….I guarantee it.

‘You MIGHT wanna sit down for this.’ Sean Spicier’s tweet about Obama admin spying sends Libs over the EDGE (bonus Biden)

If you thought Democrats and the media (same thing) were freaking out over Barr using the word SPY, you should see how badly the Obama zombies flipped out on our favorite parody account, Sean Spicier, just for tweeting about it. Granted, this account has been going for YEARS and most of them still don’t realize that he’s not THE Sean Spicer, which is part of what makes this whole thing so hilarious.

‘Unbelievable!’ AOC’s defense of Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 terrorist remarks should go over REALLY well in NYC

Thu, 04/11/2019 - 17:50

As Twitchy told you yesterday, GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw fired back at Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar after she accused him of “dangerous incitement” for accurately quoting her remarks about the 9/11 terrorists.

1. I never called you un-American.

2. I did not incite any violence against you.

3. You described an act of terrorism on American soil that killed thousands of innocent lives as “some people did something.”

It’s still unbelievable, as is your response here. https://t.co/SsfWYepOS1

— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) April 10, 2019

Saikat Chakrabarti, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s super-shady PAC pal, naturally stuck up for Omar:

I can't believe you are doubling down on this. You know you took @IlhanMN's words entirely out of context to act like she's downplaying terrorism. Ilhan talked about how one group of people did 9/11, and that led to all Muslims being persecuted. And you are proving her point. https://t.co/BILuIMrIfD

— Saikat Chakrabarti (@saikatc) April 11, 2019

Crenshaw did no such thing. But it’s no surprise that Chakrabarti would lie about Crenshaw, given the company he keeps.

And AOC will be tweeting in 1.. 2.. 3…

Do you ever notice how they tweet the same things like they are using the same device? https://t.co/nBHoCtHtPE

— Kristen Faiola (@KristenFaiola) April 11, 2019

Speak of the devil:

I’m not going to quote the NY Post’s horrifying, hateful cover.

Here’s 1 fact: @IlhanMN is a cosponsor of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. She‘s done more for 9/11 families than the GOP who won’t even support healthcare for 1st responders- yet are happy to weaponize her faith.

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 11, 2019

Here’s a fact for AOC: The New York Post’s cover is horrifying, but only in the sense that it serves as yet another disturbing reminder that Ilhan Omar is horrifying and hateful. And trying to shift the blame for Omar’s pattern of horrifying and hateful behavior onto Republicans is incredibly dishonest and disgusting.

I’m pretty sure the people who “weaponized her faith” were the ones who blew up the building, not the @nypost but hey, you do you. https://t.co/FE3831zfbs

— Doug Stafford (@dougstafford) April 11, 2019

The only person weaponizing Omar’s faith today is Omar herself, who is using it as an excuse to spew bigoted, anti-Semitic bile and then hide behind it when it’s convenient for her. Omar is the one harming good and decent Muslims. And so is AOC for defending her.

The difference is that Mr. Crenshaw is not reducing those horrific attacks to "some people who did something." You're making this a right vs left issue, but all acts of terrorism need to be condemned no matter your political ideology and Ilhan would not do that.

— Joe (@Yinz_r_jagoffs) April 11, 2019

This is called changing the subject. What she said was wrong.

— Jeremy Menicucci (@jmenicucci) April 11, 2019

If the quote is correct on the top of the cover, then the NY post is correct. To try to minimize 9/11 is crude and classless, regardless of her voting past.

— Pete Bard (@TrustThePete) April 11, 2019

Well, the quote is accurate. And Ilhan Omar is crude and classless. So defend her some more, AOC:

 

You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes.

In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that? https://t.co/rkb92IxkKX

You refuse to condemn Ilhan Omars antisemitism and Hamas murdering Palestinians as they try and protest for freedom.

Straight up FAIL! AOC’s attempted dunk on Betsy DeVos accidentally proves feds have NO business in education and ROFL

Thu, 04/11/2019 - 16:00

Now, THIS is funny.

We get what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Josh Harder are trying to do here, they’re acting like Betsy DeVos is trying to hurt THE CHILDREN. But really all they’re actually doing is admitting the federal government has zero business in public education.

Only 1/3 of American school kids in public ed can read at their grade level.

Way to go, public school.

Only *one-third* of American children in elementary & middle school can read at grade-level.

One third.

Yet Betsey DeVos is trying to cut *every* Federal literacy program in the country.

Watch @RepJoshHarder point this out + dismantle her argument. https://t.co/KwvspvI0KD

When you think about it, it’s totally fitting that he’d celebrate AOC’s efforts … because, as meteorologist Joe Bastardi points out, he’s just as embarrassingly inept when it comes to “the science on global climate change” as she is:

This from the man who while campaigning said Arctic sea ice would disappear by 2013. Blamed drought for Boko Haram in spite of 20 years of heavier than average rainfall throughout that part of Africa, Birds of a feature, flock together https://t.co/k6HYkDSaD5

Flashback: @JohnKerry predicts the Arctic will be "ice free" by 2013. (This is from June 25, 2009)

Well, technically, Kerry said the Arctic summer would be “ice-free” in five years, which would’ve murdered the Arctic in 2014. But here we are, five more years after that, and as far as we can tell, the Arctic is still icy. And John Kerry is still an idiot.

Anyone who preaches environmentalism and does not also promote nuclear energy is ignorant at best, at worst… Disingenuous virtue signaling using child logic which would cripple or economy and leave millions cold and starving.
