Rep. Mark Green Flips the Script on AOC, Suggests She Condones ICE Attack Because She Hasn’t Condemned It

The mainstream media are hellbent on playing by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s rules of engagement on all matters, and there is no better example of that than their refusal to press her into abiding by her own standards.

Such is the case with her repulsive accusations that the Republicans who haven’t explicitly denounced or otherwise condemned President Trump’s controversial tweets about The Squad from Sunday and the crowd’s “send [Rep. Ilhan Omar] back” chants during a North Carolina Trump rally this week are somehow complicit in or condoning “racism” and putting the lives of The Squad in danger.

Here are some examples of what she’s said:

Red State‘s Brandon Morse wrote about AOC’s appalling double standard on #SilenceEqualsConsent earlier this week, noting that based on her standards she condoned the recent Antifa terrorist attack on the ICE facility in Washington state. The rhetoric the deceased attacker Willem Van Spronsen used in his manifesto was eerily similar to that used by Ocasio-Cortez in her vicious verbal attacks on ICE and Border Patrol agents.

I wrote a related piece on how, going by her rules, her refusal to condemn her Squad pal Rep. Ilhan Omar’s repeated instances of anti-Semitism made her complicit in advancing the rise of anti-Semitism.

Freshman Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) also noticed Ocasio-Cortez’s hypocrisy on her #SilenceEqualsConsent rule, and took to the Twitter machine Thursday night to flip the script on her:

“We sadly have no choice but to assume she condones it.” Sounds about right.

Congressional Democrats seem to believe the best approach to solving the issues our nation faces is by first falsely accusing their political opposition of not giving a d*mn about minorities and children. Such was the case today at a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing on border conditions.

NPR reports:

Democrats pushed back against what oversight committee chairman Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., called [acting DHS Secretary] McAleenan’s attempts to “sugarcoat” conditions for detained migrants.

When McAleenan insisted his agency was doing its “level best,” Cummings shot back: “What does that mean? What does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces, can’t take a shower? Come on, man. What is that about? None of us would have our children in that position. They are human beings.”

Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., held up pictures of men and children at DHS faculties she said she visited, saying, “This would not be allowed as a kennel for dogs.” But McAleenan said Congress specifically excluded funding for more beds at facilities run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, exacerbating the overcrowded conditions there.

McAleenan also fired back after Cummings suggested that border patrol agents had an “empathy deficit”:

“I can tell you that I am at a point where I begin to wonder whether there is an empathy deficit,” Cummings said while questioning McAleenan.

McAleenan objected to the suggestion from Cummings.

“I just wonder why would an agency if they have a deficiency of empathy, create a Border Search Trauma and Rescue team to try to protect people that are making this dangerous crossing and make over 4,000 rescues a year, on their own time with the collateral duty apply to be emergency medical technicians so they can help people in dangerous conditions,” McAleenan said.

“Where’s the deficit of empathy there?” he added.

Cummings later clarified he was referring to the “zero tolerance” policy that resulted in thousands of children being separated from their families. Cummings and McAleenan also agreed to travel to the border together.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the ranking member on the committee, was particularly incensed over Cummings’s accusation of the CBP allegedly having an “empathy deficit.” Watch the video below, as Jordan displays a photo taken by former CBP acting Commissioner John Sanders of agents assisting a child at the border. Jordan then asks if the photo looks like a display of an “empathy deficit.”

McAleenan is also seen in the video explaining more about what the Border Search Trauma and Rescue team does. He also noted that a majority of the agents who worked for the border patrol were of Latino descent – a point Jordan emphasized:

Nice work by both Jordan and McAleenan to speak out on behalf of the men and women who work the border tirelessly every day. The vast majority of them are good and decent people doing their jobs.

The fact that most of them are Latino members of the community who are working to help Latino migrants who are attempting to cross the border also just goes to show you how utterly despicable the blanket accusations of “racism” by The Squad and others against the agents actually are.

As Mayors in LA & NYC Promise to #Resist Immigration Enforcement, a Mom & Her Young Children are Murdered by a Twice-Deported Criminal

[Screenshot from Twitter, https://twitter.com/search?q=Marvin%20Oswaldo%20Escobar-Orellana&src=typd]

 

31-year-old Marvin Oswaldo Escobar-Orellana was arrested Tuesday after allegedly murdering the family with whom he lived in Des Moines.

As reported by the Associated Press, Marvin is supected of having shot to death 29-year-old Rossibeth Flores-Rodriguez and her two children: 11-year-old Grecia Daniela Alvarado-Flores and 5-year-old Ever Jose Mejia-Flores.

Marvin called 911 himself.

The Guatemalan — who’s in the country illegally — has a rich history with law enforcement. In 2010, he was deported due to an illegal entry conviction.

A court ordered him not to return.

2011 = deportation #2.

Marvin told a 911 operator Rossibeth had murdered her own children, and he’d had to kill her in self-defense. Authorities say that’s not what occurred, though it remains unclear why he slaughtered a mother and her two young kids.

He’s being charged with three counts of first degree murder.

Meanwhile, ICE intends to arrest and deport resistors court-ordered to self-deport via a series of raids (here). New York Mayor Bill de Blasio — as well as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti — wants to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Bill had a message for illegal immigrants fitting the description above:

“This is your city.”

Police Chief Michel Moore offered Los Angeles this:

“We will not enforce immigration laws that are civil in nature and fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government.”

Andrew Green: Neither candidate for the Tory leadership is serious about immigration

Lord Green is Chairman of MigrationWatch UK and a cross-bench peer.

In my article of 11 June I outlined why the present scale of immigration is so important to the future of our country. Meanwhile, polling of Conservative Party voters shows that an extraordinary 88 per cent of them support the present government’s policy of reducing net migration to tens of thousands a year.

So how have the candidates been able to duck any serious discussion of an issue that is so central to the future of our country? The short answer is that they are both “liberals” on immigration as, nowadays, is much of the press and certainly the BBC.

There is, of course, the argument that to make repeated vows to reach a certain outcome and then to keep failing to do so can only do more harm than good. The answer to that, surely, is to set an achievable target as a focus for policy and make sure that it is achieved.

Sadly, the Conservatives have gone down a much more dangerous route. They have outlined a post-Brexit immigration policy that could well run out of control, and are now “consulting” about 130 organisations – nearly all of which want to see more immigration.

In the party hustings Boris Johnson has left all this to one side. Instead, he has largely confined himself to proposing an “Australian-style’ points based system – unaware, apparently, that the UK has had such a system for nearly ten years, and that it has failed to control immigration. In any case, the Australian version is extremely complex, yet covers only 15 per cent of all migrants entering Australia.

The tough Australian approach to illegal immigration by “boat people” is a wholly different matter. While this might make an ‘Australian-style’ label popular in focus groups, it has nothing whatsoever to do with their points-based system or indeed their immigration policies in the round, which are intended to encourage very high levels of legal migration to boost the size of a very under-populated country – quite the opposite situation to our own.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Hunt proposes to abandon the present net migration target of tens of thousands, reduce the general salary requirement of £30,000 needed to come to work in the UK, and introduce “flexible” immigration policies for different parts of the country. These, of course, can only increase the numbers still further.

So, to flush them out, I wrote to them both, as foreshadowed in my article on 13 June, asking whether it was their policy to achieve a substantial reduction in net migration and, more specifically, whether they would set an objective of net migration of even 150,000 a year.

Hunt provided a careful response reiterating the policies outlined above, but with no mention of a target nor of a substantial reduction – just “continued work” to bring the numbers down to “sustainable levels” (undefined, of course). Yet the policies he mentioned are very likely to increase immigration rather than decrease it. As for Boris Johnson – no response. Either he and his staff are too disorganised, or he is keeping his head down, perhaps hoping Conservative Party members will simply fail to notice he has said nothing of substance on one of the most pressing of their concerns.

All this is bad news for those who value the society that we have inherited from our forbears and who see the country changing before their eyes. The Conservatives, of all people, will have failed them. If so, it will be left to the Brexit Party to provide the only beacon for the opposition to mass immigration which is very much alive across the country.

Do Black Lives Not Matter Much to Democrats Anymore?

Westlake Legal Group black-voter-620x347 Do Black Lives Not Matter Much to Democrats Anymore? republicans Politics immigration Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats black lives matter black community Allow Media Exception

In 2016 Black Lives Matter dominated the news as activist groups everywhere would confront everyone from Bernie Sanders to Republican nominees. Democrats wrapped messaging around the increased activism of black organizations in order to make their opponents look racist and themselves look like the caring and totally not racist party among a sea of racism.

The black community came out to vote for Hillary Clinton with 88 percent of the vote. Not as much as Barack Obama’s 93 percent in 2012, but still, an overwhelming majority. Trump only managed to get eight percent.

Now, it’s hard to think of any major thing being said about the black community from Democrats over its new minority concern, the immigrant from Central America. We’re consistently given news, comments, and sensational emotion from the party of the left over the plight of the migrant from south of the border. If black lives matter, they don’t matter as much to Democrats as they did in 2016.

This is sad news. The black community actually does have problems that have yet to be solved. While the Democrats have proven themselves the least qualified to solve these problems, their talent for only making things worse isn’t the point. The glaring elephant in the room of the donkey is the fact that despite solving nothing after feigning so much care, the Democrats have moved on because another minority has proven themselves far more useful.

You can’t flip on a cable news channel or click on a news website without seeing something about the migrant crisis splayed across your screen. The bookends of these news segments will consist of a politician or activist lamenting their plight while railing against the other party for their hand in it.

Even watching the Democrat 2020 debates feature politicians speaking Spanglish in an attempt to Hispander to their current minority of concern.

If you hear Democrats actually dedicate time to the plight of the black community, let me know. They’re so few and far between now, I’m having trouble remembering the last time the black community was actually talked about in depth.

The reason for the Democrats have turned from the black community is simple. They’ve been taught that no matter what, the black community will still overwhelmingly vote for them just as the voter turnout for Obama and Clinton shows. According to Roper, Bill Clinton won 83 percent of the black vote during his elections. Al Gore got 90 percent, while John Kerry got 88 percent of the black vote when they ran for President.

The black community has been solidly in the Democrat camp in overwhelmingly large numbers for decades.

For comparison, no other race in America does that. Bill Clinton only won 61 percent of the vote when he ran against George H.W. Bush while Obama got 67 percent and Hillary Clinton got 66. Asian voters sometimes lean more in one direction than another, but typically stay somewhere near the middle.

At this point, the Democrats are taking the black vote for granted. Concern over the plight of the black community doesn’t have the driving power it used to, but Democrats aren’t worried about not talking about it half as much as they used to because they’re more than confident that the black community will vote for them anyway.

If I was a member of the black community, I’d feel awfully used. The Democrat party used to claim to be their champion and were looking out for them in the face of racist opposition, yet now that the cause of the black community is old hat, they’ve moved on. They’ll get scraps of concern here and there, but Democrats learned that they can create a much larger buzz and generate more outrage against Trump by putting the vast majority of their focus and effort on illegal immigration.

The only one really seeming to help the black community now is Trump, who lowered black unemployment to below six percent.

It makes you wonder if black lives ever really did matter to the Democrats. There’s no more outrage and screamed speeches to crowds from politicians, no more celebrities holding up signs as they march down the streets over concern for the black community. Just random mentions here and there.

As AOC Refuses to Help Migrants at the Border, Pro-Lifers Take Supplies to Help Families

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stood by her “principles” and refused to vote for funding to help support the ever-growing migrant crowd at the border and deepening the crisis everyday. The legislation passed without “The Squad’s” help, but regardless, AOC was able to stand tall knowing that she stuck it to those racist Republicans by not helping the needy central Americans at the border.

What a warrior.

Where AOC and her ilk fail, a pro-life group refuses to. Known as the New Wave Feminists, this group of women is constantly making supply runs to holding areas where migrants are taken in order to help them. According to National Review, they’ve been doing this since December:

In December, “our ragtag secular lady gang” raised just under $10,000 dollars to take two van loads of supplies to the Humanitarian Respite Center” in McAllen, Texas, Rachel Lamb, director of Humanitarian Outreach for New Wave Feminists explains. (They were encouraged by the director of the center to bring the supplies and help process the gifts themselves, because volunteers are stretched there.) “We raised another $1,000 to have more toilet facilities built.” Their current campaign has a deadline of July 13 for another delivery.

“We are pro-life because we care about the inherit human dignity of every living person, inside the womb and out,” Herndon-De La Rosa says. She feels a heightened responsibility to not look away from people at the border because “as a Texan . . . it’s happening in my backyard,” she notes. “All are vulnerable and all are human beings.”

Kendra Stanton Lee is a writer at Medium who had just gotten done complaining that pro-lifers didn’t care about the plight of the children at the border, noting that religious organizations had stayed quiet about the crisis thus far. Then she heard about New Wave Feminists, and learned that pro-life organizations were doing more in the background than she had originally thought:

Reached by phone, Herndon-de la Rosa said she had made the same voyage in December 2018 to bring toiletries to a respite humanitarian center in McAllen, Texas run by Sr. Norma Pimentel. At that time, Herndon-de la Rosa said the center was overwhelmed and undersupplied, welcoming 800 new visitors per day, brought by ICE after their detainment. When Herndon-de la Rosa returned home, she knew she needed to enlist more help to make another such delivery. Herndon-de la Rosa was able to obtain sponsorship from more than 50 pro-life organizations to raise $133,000 toward supplies like formula, diapers, and other toiletries.

It becomes tiresome listening to the left proclaim that we don’t seem to care about children outside the womb. Not only do organizations help feed and care for children at the border, the Catholic church has also sent aid.

While you hear people like Ocasio-Cortez attempt to virtue signal over the treatment of people at the border, just remember that she spent her time fake crying at a gate that blocked off an empty parking lot while pro-life organizations did the heavy lifting to actually help.

Majority of Mexicans Believe Illegal Immigrants Should Be Deported According to Recent Poll

The United States isn’t just having a migrant crisis. Mexico has a very serious problem with the number of people streaming through its country in order to try to get into the United States and frankly, they’re sick of it.

The latest poll by the Washington Post showed that six in ten Mexicans consider the migrants a burden on their country, and believes they are taking jobs that belong to them. What’s more, 55 percent believe that deporting migrants heading toward the United States is a good thing.

According to WaPo, the fact that Mexicans find themselves lining up more with Trump about immigration than originally perceived is surprising:

Those findings defy the perception that Mexico – a country that has sent millions of its own migrants to the United States, sending billions of dollars in remittances – is sympathetic to the surge of Central Americans. Instead, the data suggests Mexicans have turned against the migrants transiting through their own country, expressing antipathy that would be familiar to many supporters of President Donald Trump north of the border.

I don’t think I need to focus on the fact that Mexico is getting a taste of what it’s like to have a bunch of migrants come in and cause problems in your country. What’s more interesting is that WaPo is surprised by the fact that unchecked migration to the point of encouragement is causing more problems than they anticipated.

It’s also hilarious that in the face of these problems, WaPo is surprised that many people are beginning to understand what Trump has been talking about and are now more than ready to side with him against the issue.

The fun part will be watching how the left responds to this, if they choose to respond at all. It’s going to be difficult to pull the race card when speaking of the migrant crisis when the citizens of Mexico are also in line with deportation and border security. Racism is generally an accusation reserved for white people, but the left can’t call Mexicans racist. It would run contrary to their established narrative.

The undeniable fact is that a migrant crisis has nothing to do with race, and would be a problem no matter what color of skin a person has. Illegal immigration boils down to economic effects and crime, not what skin color a person has. Any accusation that concerns about illegal immigration is purely racial now has to answer to the fact that Mexicans are also on board with Trump’s policies.

The Dead Tacoma Antifa Used AOC’s Motive and Ayanna Pressley’s Method In His Fatal Attack

Last weekend, an Antifa goober tried to firebomb the ICE detention facility in Tacoma, WA. As was to be expected, his technical skills were not up to the task, but the Tacoma police gave him what he so richly deserved. He left behind a “manifesto” that was the gibbering anarchist nonsense that you’d expect but, the more we look at it, the more it becomes obvious that the rhetoric of The Squad, that august brain trust consisting of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilnan “no I really didn’t have sex with my brother” Omar, and Ayanna Pressley, heavily influenced his thinking, such as it was, and his actions.

He relies on AOC’s “concentration camp” rhetoric and his method of attack seems to have been derived from another.

For someone who has twisted her panties in a tight little knot over a tweet by President Trump, Pressley seems to be fairly cavalier about inciting arson attacks or, taken at its most benign, mob violence against federal detention facilities. The left has a sordid history of inciting fatal attacks by using rhetoric that clearly calls for violence but which can be massaged by a willing press into mere hyperbole that some nutter misunderstood. It was the left that encouraged a nutter to try to shoot up the Family Research Council. It was the left that encouraged a nutter to shoot up a GOP congressional baseball team. It was the left that encouraged a nutter to try to burn an ICE facility. It is the left that is encouraging the violent street mobs of Antifa.

It is getting harder and harder to believe that these incitements are accidental and not part of a desire, if not a design, to ratchet up political violence in the country. Too what end, we don’t know. But it is certain that we will find out in the coming years.

Johnson’s August 3) Delivering campaign pledges – in so far as he can without a durable majority

It is now overwhelmingly likely that Boris Johnson will be the next Conservative Party leader and become Prime Minister.

He may well face a no confidence vote in September, and the Brexit extension expires at the end of October in any event.

So he and his new team will have to hit the ground running in August. We continue our series on what he should do during that month and late July before the Commons is due to return on September 3.

– – – – – – – – – –

According to our weekly updated list, Boris Johnson has made some 25 policy pledges during the Conservative leadership election.  In the probable event of a general election in the autumn, he won’t be able to deliver on many of them.  And he will soon have a working majority of only three in any event.

Which surely rules out a Special Budget in September.  It would have to contain more provisions for No Deal, and wrapping them up in this way would only encourage MPs to vote them down.  He would do better to try any that he needs on the Commons piecemeal.

MPs would also vote down any tax cuts “for the rich” – a category who they would collectively argue includes those who pay the higher rate of income tax, the threshold of which Johnson has promised to raise.

It would be impossible in effect to cut income tax rates in time for a snap election anyway, though the Commons might nod through a rise in the national insurance threshold for lower paid workers, another of his pledges.

But just because Johnson can’t do everything – or even anything much that requires a Bill – doesn’t mean that he can only do nothing.

Governments have greater discretion on spending than tax.  So, for example, he could start to deliver on increasing funding per pupil in secondary schools and raising police numbers.  That would come in handy with an autumn election looming.

The latter move would go hand in hand with a battle with Chief Constables and others over the best use of new resources.  Voters want to see more police on the streets and more use of stop and search.  Johnson’s new Home Secretary should pile in.

And while he will have little legislative room for manoeuvre, he will be able to propose some relatively uncontentious Bills for September – settling the status, for example, of EU citizens.

Then there are measures that he could announce the new Government will not proceed with, as well as those that he wants to proceed with.  Theresa May is providing a growing list of the former.

Not to put too fine a point on it, he should take an axe to parts of her legacy programme – including, as Henry Hill has argued, the hostage to fortune that is the proposed Office for Tackling Injustices.

He will also want to show a direction of travel on some major policy issues.  We do not believe that refusing to commit to a reduction in immigration is sustainable.  As a starting-point to establishing control, he could do a lot worse than take up the Onward proposals floated on this site yesterday by Mark Harper.

There is a limited amount that the new Government will be able to do a in single month – not least when the new Prime Minister is bound to be out of London for parts of it, Parliament isn’t sitting, there is a new Brexit policy to get into shape, and the threat of a no confidence vote in September.

What Johnson can do is form a team, shape a Cabinet – of which more later – begin the Brexit negotiation’s new phase, and show what his priorities are: police, schools and infrastructure, with a particular stress when it comes to the latter on the Midlands and the North.

CBP Commissioner: Anti-Border Enforcement Rhetoric from Dems is Partly Responsible for the Tacoma Terrorist Attack

Appearing on Fox News program The Ingraham Angle, Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan blamed rhetoric from the Democratic Party, in part, for the left-wing terrorist attack on an illegal-immigration detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

On Saturday morning, a rifle-toting 69-year-old assailant was killed by law enforcement after trying to ignite a large propane tank.

Reportedly, Willem Van Spronsen was an anarchist and member of the ironically-named fascistic group Antifa (here).

Willem left a manifesto, and its claims suffered, as noted by Laura, under the influence of far-Left Democrats’ stunning excoriation of America’s system of border enforcement:

“[The attacker’s] manifesto repeatedly referred to ICE and the holding centers as ‘concentration camps,’ a comparison pushed by AOC. Not one 2020 Dem or mainstream media organization thought to mention that link, that same verbiage, none of it.”

Mark is perplexed by the DNC’s move against law:

“Why is this happening? We know why it’s happening. The rhetoric that’s out there from our own elected leaders, the vile rhetoric — they’re attacking the men and women of ICE, they’re attacking the men and women of CBP. It’s unjust, it’s unfair, it’s misinformed and outright — sometimes — they’re just lying to the American people. And it’s undoubtedly fueling this.”

He has a point — if Democrats are stirring the pot of paranoia with a perpetual characterization of immigration law and border agents as evil, it should be no surprise when the nuttiest among us rise to fight the monster.

And it isn’t only true with regard to immigration: The same, it seems to me, has occurred in various ways since the advent of Donald Trump. It’s how we end up with violent, black-masked terrorists — just see this incredible spectacle:

You can’t stoke the coals of fear and expect no one to lash out.

Laura did make it clear, however, that she wasn’t claiming Alexandria “Concentration Camp” Ocasio-Cortez directly caused the attack (here and here).

But, as noted by Laura:

“If you actually think a concentration camp is happening in America, what wouldn’t you do to stop it?”

Mark agreed. What many fail to understand, he insisted, is that our border agents are, in fact, heroes:

“What makes me so frustrated, Laura, is the men and women of CBP…this year alone, they’ve rescued almost 4,000 individuals. Individuals trying to illegally enter this country.”

What do you think of Laura’s and Mark’s allegations? Was the Tacoma attack the natural conclusion to Dems’ war against the border, which is to say — perhaps more accurately — their war against Trump?
