Trump could shoot a neo-Nazi on Fifth Avenue and liberals would still say it’s not enough

Published

Today, President Trump signed a Congressional Joint Resolution condemning the violence and bigotry in Charlottesville and elsewhere in America. Here’s his statement:

As Americans, we condemn the recent violence in Charlottesville and oppose hatred, bigotry, and racism in all forms. No matter the color of our skin or our ethnic heritage, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God. We are a Nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. As one people, let us move forward to rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Just a few hours before signing the resolution, Trump spoke about his meeting with South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott aboard Air Force One. He once again mentioned how “both sides” had violence. He’s totally right. But he’s also right to sign the resolution.

Trump’s earlier comments on Charlottesville came one day after he met in private with Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, the Senate’s lone black Republican, at the White House. The two discussed the president’s past remarks blaming “many sides” for the violence and death around a Confederate statue.

 

 

 

President Trump Stands By Original Charlottesville Remarks | WBUR News

http://www.wbur.org/npr/551069462/president-trump-stands-by-original-charlottesville-remarksAntifa is an anti-fascist protest movement that sometimes uses violent tactics to resist neo-Nazis and white supremacists and has gotten a lot of attention, especially from conservative media, following the violence in Charlottesville.

The Anti-Defamation League’s CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt, said in a statement Thursday that “It is sad that the President seems not to have learned from his conversation with Senator Scott or from the unanimous vote from Congress condemning the neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville.” Greenblatt added, “If he is not going to provide the moral leadership the country needs on this issue, we are glad that leaders from both parties are stepping up and doing so.”

 

Reactions

Liberals didn’t give Trump any credit whatsoever for this action. It’s as if he never signed it. Even liberal media focused on Trump’s (correct!) statements about Antifa violence, framing that vicious group as mild-mannered protesters who “sometimes” use violent methods.

There are hundreds and hundreds of these takes on Twitter and I’m sure all social media.

Final thoughts

Even if Trump took a rifle and shot dead a neo-Nazi in full public view on Fifth Avenue, the liberal press, and the public who go along with their narrative would think he’s just doing it as a stunt and later winked. They’d go so far as to make up conspiracy theories that the guy wasn’t really dead.

In the end, it doesn’t matter what Trump does, other than parrot their narrative (which means he’d have to resign since that’s sort of what Antifa wants, before they impose their own reign of terror).

This makes me glad–in these cases–that Trump is immune to hate. He’s immune to people not liking him, as long as he has people who do. The president did the right thing, for the right reason. Let’s at least acknowledge it, but the left can’t because it’s Trump.

Faux conservative media ignores GOP lies on abortion

Faux conservative media ignores Trump and GOP lies on abortion

Even though Republicans have failed the pro-life litmus test ever since the Republican-nominated Supreme Court decided 46 years ago in Roe v. Wade that women have a Constitutional right to murder their unborn child, they are playing the pro-life card once again for political purposes in preparation for the 2020 election.

This was extremely obvious last month when Mitch McConnell held a show vote on the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” a bill introduced by Sen. Ben Sasse mandating medical care for babies that survive the abortion procedure attempted murder.

Like the GOP itself during the past two years of full control of Washington, the bill did nothing to bring an end to abortion. It did, however, give Mitch McConnell and the Republicans a nice political talking point to add to their 2020 election arsenal.

“This stunning, stunning extremism” will not “be the last word on the subject.”

By the way, Republicans played this same game in 2018 — an election year — with a House version of the BAASPA that died in the Senate.

I wrote last week about BlazeTV and how it had become a pro-Trump echo chamber and home of faux conservatives. In the piece, I mentioned an episode of Steve Deace’s show where he pointed out the Democrats’ “worship of abortion” and called on conservatives to “cheer” Donald Trump because he was using late-term abortion as a campaign issue.

In a rebuttal on his show the day after my article, Deace and his crew accused me of being in the “orange man bad” anti-Trump cult where criticism of Trump is only happens because we’re talking about Trump. Aside from the obvious attempt to dismiss my opinion without addressing it, my conclusions were based on Trump’s non-conservative policies, his track record of doublemindedness and broken promises regarding abortion, and BlazeTV’s decision to promote Trump as the savior of the Republic.

Yes, the Democrat party is the party of abortion and infanticide. Heck, the party’s 2016 platform championed Planned Parenthood and promised to protect government funding of their infanticide services. The platform also called for Democrats to overturn “all federal and state laws that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including repealing of the Hyde Amendment.”

The Democrat-controlled House has begun working on ways to repeal the Hyde Amendment. Claiming to possess a “pro-choice majority,” they are looking to find new ways for public funds to be used to murder the unborn, including coverage for abortions under Medicaid along with mandating abortion coverage under other government healthcare plans.

Here’s a fun fact: the much-ballyhooed Medicare for All single-payer healthcare plan being promoted by nearly every Democrat presidential candidate and some “conservative socialists” mandates coverage for abortion services. Once we have single-payer, every American will be funding the murder of unborn babies. Look for it to be included in the 2020 Democrat platform.

So, this means Deace was right about the Democrats, right? Yes, but he and others in the faux conservative media have turned this reality into a “squirrel moment” to distract voters away from the hypocrisy and lies we get from Trump — and by default, the GOP — on the abortion issue. Pointing to the obvious extremism of the Democrat Party while giving Trump a pass on abortion and “cheering” him for using it as a political weapon to get re-elected is nothing more than another edition of the #notDemocrat game we get from the GOP every election season.

Democrats haven’t had to worry about keeping their platform promise to protect Planned Parenthood because Trump and the GOP have been keeping that promise for them by not only continuing their funding, but increasing it. They have also increased funding for harvesting body parts from aborted babies for research purposes, included experiments using human fetal tissue on mice — tissue that comes from Planned Parenthood.

Democrats are pro-abortion to the extreme and Republicans are no different. But the GOP gets to hide behind the cover of a so-called conservative media that is all too willing to play the deceptive #notDemocrat game while “cheering” Trump and the GOP for tickling their ears.

Van Jones on CNN describes the left's reaction to the Mueller report

For the last 22-months, a day hasn’t gone by in which CNN didn’t mention Robert Mueller’s investigation with a spin of hope for their leftist audience that any moment, the hammer would drop and Mueller would be knocking on the White House door with handcuffs in hand. Now that Attorney General William Barr has released a summary of the Mueller report, many in mainstream media are trying to reconcile what they now know with what they’ve thought they knew for nearly two years.

Many are saying, “wait for the full report.” Others are saying Mueller – their hero for the duration – was controlled or incompetent or paid off or threatened… or something. Others are looking to SDNY as the next great Trump-buster. CNN’s Van Jones expressed the left’s general feelings in one sentence.

When we break it all down, it just comes down to sadness. The left is sad the President didn’t collude with the Russians. It was their best hope to prove their unyielding support for Hillary Clinton wasn’t wasted. Now, they’re lost.

Big League Politics editor Patrick Howley speaks out against Fox News following Judge Pirro removal

Big League Politics editor Patrick Howley speaks out against Fox News following Judge Pirro removal

When Judge Jeanine Pirro questioned whether or not hijabs worn by Congresswomen was antithetical to the Constitution because it represented sharia law (which is definitely antithetical to the Constitution), the Council on American-Islamic Relations demanded Fox News remove the host and her show.

Fox News complied.

Conservatives across the nation are speaking out against the move and Fox News itself. We expressed our opinions about Fox News the other day, noting they’re not the place for conservatives to be finding their news. Now, conservative news source One America News brought on Big League Politics editor-in-chief Patrick Howley to give his perspectives on the firing and the future of Fox News.

To sum it up, Howley said “the only way to fight back against Fox News is to tune them out.” Considering the direction they’ve been taking recently, this is clearly sound advice. OAN is a great alternative.
