Associated Press out of the BDS anti-Israel closet

August 16, 2019

This deceptive Associated Press headline, “Israel bans entry to outspoken US congresswomen,” should have read, “Israel bans entry to virulently anti-Semitic US congresswomen.”  The intentionally misleading word parsing clearly displays the media’s skewed bent, which it no longer attempts to conceal.

Far-left freshmen Democrats Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN), both Muslim members of congress, support the Palestinian-led BDS movement which advocates boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israeli businesses, products, universities and cultural institutions.

National Review recently headlined its revealing report:Omar to Introduce Resolution Declaring Support for Anti-Israel BDS Movement.” On Thursday Omar ludicrously accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of imposing a “Muslim ban,” declaring, “It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government.”

Arizona Sen. Martha McSally, who prior to retiring from the Air Force as a full Colonel, was deployed in the Middle East and supports President Trump’s resolve on the issue.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said his country is “open to critics and criticism,” noted that Tlaib and Omar’s itinerary for the trip “revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.”

Omar, who PJ Media reported engaged in a marriage with her own brother to perpetrate immigration and student loan fraud, irrationally stated, “Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected members of Congress.”

The women, members of what has been described as the congressional “Squad,” routinely refer to the sole democracy in the Middle East in the most derogatory of terms, and, for good measure, condemn President Trump. Omitted from their anti-Semitic tirade is the inconvenient fact that since the formation of the state of Israel in 1948, there have been Arabic members of the Knesset, the legislative body similar to the U.S. Congress. They have been Muslim, Druze, and Christian.

The U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, endorsed the decision to ban Tlaib and Omar, saying Israel “has every right to protect its borders” against promoters of boycotts.

Why stabbing fatalities fly under the media radar

August 9, 2019

The recent wave of killings of innocents by knife wielding criminals has garnered scant coverage by the left-wing, agendized news media. In the past couple of days, vicious stabbing fatalities have increased without grabbing national headlines or being exploited by Democrat politicians.

Zachary Castaneda, a 33-year-old convicted felon and known gang member — described by the Garden Grove, California police chief as “full of anger” motivated by “robbery, hate, homicide,” — went on a two-hour, two-handed stabbing and robbery rampage in Southern California. He randomly killed four people and wounded two others using “some sort of machete knives.”  Law enforcement officials say changes in state law led to Castaneda being released from prison earlier than he previously would have been. In 2011 California’s Democrat controlled legislature, passed Assembly Bill 109, approved by Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown. The aim was to reduce prison populations via machinations.

The police chief noted the suspect and all his victims were Hispanic.

This clearly doesn’t play into the “racist” narrative that has irrationally been hung around President Trump’s neck by scheming leftists.

Neither does the stabbing fatality that took place in New York as William Rivas, 39, fatally stabbed his wife, Carmen Santiago multiple times in the back at a nail salon where she worked. Shocked witnesses filmed part of the horrific, bloody attack on their phones.

Hispanic killers don’t fit the left’s hypocritical playbook. Neither are knifes and machetes included in Second Amendment protections that radical leftists want to abolish.  There is no equivalent of the NRA protecting long blades.


SCOTUS delivers border wall win for Pres. Trump

July 27, 2019

The U.S. Supreme Court backed the Trump administration on Friday by lifting an impediment imposed by a lower court that had quashed plans to use $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds for border wall construction — a key element of the president’s 2016 winning campaign.

The decision allows the administration to move forward with plans to construct the much needed border wall along major entry points used by illegal aliens.

Chief Justice John Roberts and associate justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh voted in support of the administration.

Liberal associate justices Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, all Democrat appointees, dissented, with their cohort Justice Stephen Breyer issuing this split opinion, unable or unwilling to fully reach the right conclusion.

On February 19, the reliably leftist organizations American Civil Liberties Union and Sierra Club, filed a lawsuit challenging President Trump’s emergency powers declaration to secure funds to build the barrier along the southern border, after his efforts were stonewalled by congressional Democrats. The lawsuit, brought on behalf of the Sierra Club and the illegal invasion supporting Southern Border Communities Coalition was filed in the Northern District of California.

“We are pleased that the Supreme Court recognized that the lower courts should not have halted construction of walls on the southern border,” Justice Department spokesperson Alexei Woltornist said in a statement. “We will continue to vigorously defend the Administration’s efforts to protect our Nation.”

Mueller sham investigation, “doddering” testimony exposed

July 25, 2019

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway has likely written the best assessment of Robert Mueller’s difficult to watch testimony, intended to bring President Trump to the gates of political hell. Instead, it elicited unexpected feelings of sympathy for frail, former FBI director, Mueller, described as “doddering.”

Not only is it a miserable end to a lofty career, but there is the impossible to forget spectacle of a less than mentally alert, ashen and disconnected man, repeatedly asking for simple sentences to be repeated, that will provide the indelibly etched memory superseding any previous accomplishments.

Mueller’s obvious decline appears to have self-written Hemingway’s headline, Mueller doddering raises many questions about who precisely was running investigation.”

These not widely reported facts emerge in her commentary:

“What I don’t think anybody expected was Mueller would present himself as doddering, as lacking command of anything to do with the election and thereby raising a whole host of questions about who actually was in charge of this Mueller investigation. A lot of people just gave it leeway because they respected him and seeing today I don’t think anyone thinks he was in charge. It had been previously reported that 13 of his 17 associates were Democrats, 0 were Republicans. Nine were Democratic donors; six were Hillary Clinton donors. Some were pretty close allies of the Clintons. One attended a Hillary Clinton election rally. So what I think you’re going to start seeing many more questions about precisely who was running this investigation and to what end? …

The big change I think is there were Republicans who really did trust the Mueller investigation on the grounds that Robert Mueller was running it alone. He was the only Republican affiliated with it and he apparently had no idea what was going on. So I think you’re going to see some people, you’re going to see an increase in ranks of people who think that maybe the investigation was not handled properly and there were deep problems with it.”

An impossible to argue with assessment, Mrs. Hemingway.


Weak Mueller fails to make Dems’ impeachment case

July 24, 2019

Watch as former Special Counsel Robert Mueller sets the stage for President Trump’s impeachment…that is, if can even remember who Donald Trump is.

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement in response to Mueller’s embarrassing testimony, succinctly summing up the Democrats’ bad day:

“Today’s hearings were a disaster for Democrats. After three years, millions of taxpayer dollars and countless lies from Democrats, Mueller just reaffirmed what we’ve known all along: There was no collusion and no obstruction. Case closed.”

On July 12, at his request, Mueller’s public testimony was delayed an additional week to July 24 to give him time to prepare.  He could have used an additional year.

Pres. Trump‘s first-rate record = overwhelming support

July 10, 2019

Today we’re taking a spin around the always fascinating Federal Election Commission site. Elections are expensive, national elections even more so. By necessity, money is the engine that drives the political train. Few of the Democrat/Socialist pack are household names, but they all consider themselves capable of leading the free world.

Like indistinguishable dervishes, they whirl in and out of contention. On Tuesday California Rep. Eric Swalwell exited without a ripple, while leftist billionaire Tom Steyer, who vowed he would not run, entered the race — leaving Democrats who relied on his $120 million donations during the midterm elections, empty-handed. Steyer’s vacuous heartthrob issue is impeaching President Trump. The recent exit of Mike Gravel, an 89-year-old former Alaska senator speaks for itself.

These are the current Dem candidates:

Mayor Bill de Blasio

Gov. Steve Bullock

Sen. Michael Bennet

Obama’s VP Joe Biden

Mayor Pete Buttigieg

Rep. Seth Moulton

Rep. Tim Ryan

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

Fmr Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke

Fmr Gov. John Hickenlooper

Gov. Jay Inslee

Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self declared Socialist.

Hedge fund billionaire Tom Steyer

Sen. Amy Klobuchar

Sen. Elizabeth  “Pocahontas ”Warren

Sen. Cory “I am Spartacus” Booker

Sen. Kamala Harris

Fmr Mayor Julian Castro

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

Fmr Rep. John Delaney

Mayor Wayne Messam

Fmr Rep. Joe Sestak

New Ager Marianne Williamson

Tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang

Republicans who watched the recent Democrat debates, feel even more secure with incumbent President Donald Trump in the White House, fulfilling the promises he made as a candidate.

The DNC, well aware of the debate debacle, is scheduling more, two in the second week of September, but with more restrictions on who can participate. Count on open borders and (taxpayer funded) giveaways to dominate as ABC News partners with Univision, the Spanish language broadcast network.
