Desperate Democrats Move to Block Trump’s National Emergency

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced that his colleagues in the Senate will follow House Democrats’ lead and move to block President Trump’s emergency declaration to build a wall along the southern border.

In a statement, Schumer said, “This issue transcends partisan politics, and I urge all senators — Democrats and Republicans — to support this resolution to terminate the president’s emergency declaration when it comes up for a vote in the Senate. Identical companion legislation to the House resolution will soon be introduced in the Senate.”

Politico reports:

“The House resolution is expected to pass easily, with Democrats in control. But it’s unclear whether the resolution will pass the Senate. Several Republican senators have voiced concern about Trump’s emergency declaration to build a border wall.

Sen. Susan Collins of Maine became the first Republican Senator Wednesday to say she would support a resolution disapproving of the emergency declaration. The Senate version of the resolution could place further pressure on Senate Republicans to decide whether to break with the president on his national emergency declaration.”

Vermont Lawmakers Pass Disturbing Abortion Bill

Vermont lawmakers have passed a disturbing abortion bill which claims every person has a right to an abortion for any reason and strips unborn children of any rights.

The Blaze is reporting that critics claim the legislation is “more expansive of abortion rights than extremist bills passed in New York…”

The bill passed in the House 106 to 36 and states “Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, give birth to a child, or to have an abortion.”

It also does not recognize the personhood of an unborn child.

“A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus shall not have independent rights under Vermont law,” states the law.

The Blaze writes, “Republicans introduced several amendments to the bill, including one that would require women to receive an ultrasound before aborting their baby, but the objections were voted down by Democrats. Another amendment would require minors to have parental consent before aborting a child — that was voted down as well.”

The bill now goes to the Democratically controlled senate and Vermont Governor Phil Scott has already indicated he would sign it if it passes.

Vandals Appear to Have Mistaken WWII Hero Statue for Confederate General

Vandals in North Carolina who set fire to a WWII statue appear to have mistaken the war hero for Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

Fox News reports:

A white marble monument of U.S. Army Maj. Gen. William C. Lee, who commanded the 101st Airborne Division’s “Screaming Eagles” during World War II, was doused with flammable liquid and set on fire last week, museum officials said. The statue bears black scorch marks running up its left side.

The suspects seem to have confused Lee with Gen. Robert E. Lee, who led the Confederate army during the Civil War some 80 years earlier, officials said.

“I was surprised that anybody would do that to this museum statue,” Mark Johnson, curator of the General William C. Lee Airborne Museum, told Goldsboro’s WNCN-TV. “This is not a Civil War museum and this is not Robert E. Lee.”

The statue will be cleaned and repaired. Authorities are urging anyone with information about the vandalism to call 910-892-2222 and are offering a $1,000 reward.

Conservative Punched in Face at UC Berkeley Recruiting Event

A conservative participating in a recruiting event at the University of California-Berkeley was punched in the face and threatened with being shot this week.

Hayden Williams, a field representative for conservative group, the Leadership Institute, was punched multiple times by an individual calling him a “racist bi**h.”

Campus Reform reports:

At the time of the incident, the alleged victim was helping students recruit other conservatives for Turning Point USA behind a table with a sign that read, “hate crime hoaxes hurt real victims,” a reference to the Jussie Smollett case in Chicago. 

But at least twice, the situation turned violent and now, police are asking for help in identifying the suspects. 

“Mother f*cker. You racist little inbred b*tch. C**t!,” the man who punched the alleged victim shouted. 

Williams told Campus Reform, “Some students nearby tabling were laughing, even one guy was smiling while I was being attacked and trying to hand me his flyer as a joke. The idea is free speech has consequences…. which include you getting assaulted if they find you promoting ideas others don’t agree with.”

In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night, Williams said he did nothing to provoke the man who punched him.

The university has confirmed that an investigation is under way.

ISIS Bride’s Father Sues Trump for Blocking Her Return to U.S.

The father of a woman who fled the U.S. to join ISIS in Syria is suing the Trump Administration for banning her return to the United States.

Ahmed Ali Muthana filed a lawsuit in Washington D.C. claiming the United States made an “unlawful attempt” to prevent his daughter–whom he says is a U.S. citizen–from entering the country.

However, as Politico points out, “the Trump administration says her status as the daughter of a Yemeni diplomat means she is not a naturalized citizen and thus not entitled to the Constitutional rights of an American citizen.”

On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted, “I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!”

Muthana, 24, fled Alabama for Syria in 2014 at the age of 19 and is currently at a refugee camp in northeast Syria. She married three ISIS fighters during her time in the Middle East and has an 18-month-old son from one of her marriages.

Muthana told The Guardian in a recent interview that she wanted to return to the United States.

When asked if she had a message for the U.S., she said, “I would tell them please forgive me for being so ignorant, and I was really young and ignorant and I was 19 when I decided to leave.”

“I believe that America gives second chances. I want to return and I’ll never come back to the Middle East. America can take my passport and I wouldn’t mind,” she added.

According to The Guardian, in 2015, Muthana used Twitter to urge Americans to commit acts of violence on nation holidays like Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day and to “spill all of their blood.”

“Americans wake up! Men and women altogether. You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping! Go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriots, Memorial, etc day … Kill them,”

Earlier this week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Muthana would not be allowed to return to the U.S. despite her pleas.

“Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States,” he said in a statement. She does not have any legal basis, no valid U.S. passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States.  We continue to strongly advise all U.S. citizens not to travel to Syria.”

A Peek into Socialist Bernie Sanders’ Lavish and Hypocritical Lifestyle

Despite being an avowed socialist, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (VT) leads a lifestyle that isn’t exactly compatible with his political beliefs.

In a piece titled, “Lifestyles of the Rich and Socialist”, Fox News points out that Sanders has a “high-end income, multiple houses and fondness for air travel.”

“Sanders has raised eyebrows over his spending and personal wealth. Notably, he owns three houses. In 2016, he bought a $575,000 four-bedroom lake-front home in his home state. This is in addition to a row house in Washington D.C., as well as a house in Burlington, Vermont,” writes Fox.

The Senator also earned more than $1 million in 2017, with almost $900,000 coming from his book on his 2016 presidential run.

Sanders also issues impassioned pleas for Americans to limit environmental pollution–and yet–in October, he spent over $300,000 on air travel to tour the country and speak to audiences ahead of the midterm elections.

Looney Liberals Force CT State Capitol to Remove Flag Honoring Police

A flag honoring police officers was removed from the Connecticut State Capitol after Democrats complained it might be offensive, according to the Washington Times.

A wooden “thin blue line” flag was donated to the Capitol by a member of the State Capitol Police and was hung in the Police Memorial Hall in the Capitol building.

Unsurprisingly, Democratic lawmakers complained that the flag could be considered anti-Black Lives Matter and the sign has since been removed.

Connecticut state representative and chairman of the Black and Puerto Rican Caucus Brandon McGee told NBC, “In the context of history behind it, a lot of my members expressed a lot of concerns, especially in this building.

“We are not anti-police,” he said. “We support our men in blue, but we also know that given the history around black people, people of color with respect to this particular issue, I just think it was necessary for us to share our concerns with our leadership.”

House Republican leader Themis Klarides told the Hartford Courant, “This flag intended to honor the work, dedication, sacrifice and lives of our past and present officers. To suggest that this American flag that was donated by the State Capitol Police is anything other than honorable is categorically false. The House Republican caucus would like to publicly request that the American flag honoring our law enforcement officers here at the Capitol and throughout Connecticut be put back in its rightful and approved location — the Police Memorial Hall here at the Capitol.”

Trump Slams Smollett

President Trump slammed Empire actor Jussie Smollett after Chicago police said  the star orchestrated a fake hate crime attack.

On Twitter this morning, the president wrote, “@JussieSmollett- what about MAGA and the tens of millions of people you insulted with your racist and dangerous comments!? #MAGA.”

Smollett was arrested last night after police officially classified him as a suspect for allegedly filing a false police report about the incident. Smollett had claimed he was the victim of a homophobic and racist attack in Chicago where two men poured a chemical substance on him, put a rope around his neck and said “This is MAGA country!”

Now, police say Smollett paid two Nigerian brothers to carry out the phony attack because he was “dissatisfied with his salary.”

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson didn’t mince words about Smollett during a press conference earlier today.

“I’m left hanging my head and asking why: Why would anyone, especially an African-American man, use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations?,” he said. ” How could someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol…how can an individual who has been embraced by the city of Chicago turn around and slap everyone in this city by making this false claim?”

 

 

 

 

Awesome Billboard Appears in Times Square Criticizing Ocasio-Cortez

A billboard in Times Square is slamming Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) for her role in Amazon’s decision to no longer build its headquarters in New York City.

The billboard, at 42nd Street and 8th Ave, reads “25,000 lost NYC jobs, $4 billion in lost wages, $12 billion in lost economic activity for NY. Thanks for nothing, AOC!” The epic message was funded by the Job Creators Network, a group tied to Republican billionaire donor Rebekah Mercer.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the billboard, calling it “wack.”

Taking to Twitter, the congresswoman wrote, “Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers).”

On February 14, Amazon announced it would no longer build its headquarters in New York City, citing opposition from state and local politicians.

The statement reads:

“After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens. For Amazon, the commitment to build a new headquarters requires positive, collaborative relationships with state and local elected officials who will be supportive over the long-term. While polls show that 70% of New Yorkers support our plans and investment, a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City.”

After the announcement, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world.”
