Ted Cruz Reaffirms His Status as the Funniest Guy On Twitter at Bernie Sanders’ Expense

Westlake Legal Group TedCruzDealWithItTwitter-620x336 Ted Cruz Reaffirms His Status as the Funniest Guy On Twitter at Bernie Sanders’ Expense twitter Ted Cruz socialism republicans Politics funny Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats comedy Bernie Sanders Allow Media Exception

A favorite running joke of the public’s is that Sen. Ted Cruz is the “Zodiac Killer.” Funny enough, it’s also one of Cruz’s favorite running jokes.

According an eagle eye’d Twitter user, that title may need to be taken from Cruz and given to none other than democratic socialism’s crazy grandpa, Sen. Bernie Sanders. The Twitter user found a picture of Sanders as a young man, and it looked highly similar to the sketch of the Zodiac Killer.

“We tried to blame this one on Ted Cruz,” tweeted Kyle Mockeridge.

Of course, Cruz watching his Zodiac Killer joke potentially fading away, pondered allowed why socialists are always trying to take things that don’t belong to them.

“Why do socialists try to take things that aren’t theirs?” tweeted Cruz.

Many people took this self-deprecation as hilarious, but Sanders supporters were a little less than amused.

Right now, Sanders is having to deal with his own problems. Sanders is beset by enemies on all sides, be it the capitalists, his fellow 2020 Democrat contenders, Donald Trump, and Bernie Sanders, who might be the biggest opponent Sanders has.

Recently Sanders had to promise to pay his staff $15 an hour after a controversy arose surrounding his campaign due to the fact that he wasn’t paying wages high enough for his staff. Instead of securing the pay for everyone’s jobs, Sanders had to lay off some of his staff and increase hours for whoever remained. Odd, since Sanders is promising this kind of wage for all Americans, but when it comes to pony up himself, his socialism has to take a back seat.

Remember folks, socialism is for the people, not the socialist.

“They Don’t Want Solutions”: Watch as Dan Crenshaw Again Exposes the Open Borders Position of Democrats

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-1-2-620x317 “They Don’t Want Solutions”: Watch as Dan Crenshaw Again Exposes the Open Borders Position of Democrats washington D.C. Texas Social Media republicans Politics open borders North Carolina New York Media immigration Illegal Immigration Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Dan Crenshaw Culture Congress border crisis AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has emerged as a leading voice among House Republicans on the issue of illegal immigration, and in recent weeks has emphasized the point that the Democratic position is that there be nothing short of open borders.

In an interview with Fox News this morning, Crenshaw responded to claims from Democrats about what’s happening at the border and the course of action some on the left are demanding be taken.

But first, some recent history: Earlier this month Crenshaw pointed out how the Democratic position on the current border crisis had evolved over the last few months from accusing Republicans of “manufacturing a crisis” to finally admitting there is a crisis at the border – and then blaming Trump.

In particular, the freshman Congressman took issue with the claims of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who has been among the loudest voices of opposition to the Trump administration’s border policies, and who said she was harassed during her visit to a detention center in early July:

“Now she is saying that border patrol agents harassed her and forced migrants to drink out of toilets? This is insanity. This is not true. There is no one else corroborating these kinds of reports.

“Yet, she is using it to try and make her case that we shouldn’t have any enforcement and that we should have open borders. This is really dishonest behavior from a member of Congress and I honestly can’t believe it.”

In his interview this morning, Crenshaw responded to a question from Fox and Friends‘s Brian Kilmeade about AOC calling for a 9/11-style commission to investigate how conditions on the southern border have deteriorated:

“Notice that they never come up with a solution,” Crenshaw told “Fox & Friends” Monday morning. “They talk about the over-crowded facilities. They never have a solution. They don’t have a solution for our immigration system. They say it shouldn’t be defined by the administration — well, we do have laws right now…that says you can’t illegally cross the border. That’s immigration policy set by Congress. It’s a law in place. We need to enforce it.”

He said Democrats aren’t proposing ways to fix the issue.

“What they really want is more commissions like this, more investigations they can point to, to call the president evil,” he said. “That’s what they want.”

[…]

“I’m worried that the Democrats like this crisis too much,” Crenshaw added. “I’m worried as I’ve seen them fight against every single, even the smallest measures to help fix our immigration problem, they fight against. They don’t want walls. They don’t want a fix to the asylum loopholes. They’re talking about decriminalizing illegal border crossings.”

In other words, what they want is one thing: Open borders.

Watch video of this segment of the interview below:

Crenshaw also recently pushed for an amendment that would allow for crime data collection in sanctuary cities, which Democrats blocked. Watch below as he discussed the bill during a committee hearing:

“I do honestly fear that we have gotten to a point where we are actually debating between open borders and managed borders,” he said in the clip. “I hope we’re not there. I honestly do not hope we’re there.”

Unfortunately, we are most definitely there.

Idiot of the Week: Actor Tom Arnold Tells Distinguished War Veteran Dan Crenshaw to Man Up (Seriously)

There’s something to be said for thinking about what you say before you say it.

Clearly that’s not a concept that actor Tom Arnold understands, because on Thursday he took a swipe at Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) that ripped a page right out of the “stuck on stupid” handbook.

The freshman Congressman posted a tweet on Thursday decrying the fact that liberals and Democrats take the fun and joy out of everything, especially when it comes to proud moments in American history and patriotism like the 50th aniversary of the Apollo 11 landing:

Arnold who, unlike Crenshaw , is a warrior in keyboard name only, jumped at the chance to suggest that Crenshaw man up and stop “blaming leftists” for “stupid sh*t no one would’ve noticed or cared about”:

Is it just me or did Arnold kinda sort make Crenshaw’s point about liberals taking the fun and joy out of everything?

In any event, the responses to Arnold’s tweet were priceless, but Red State‘s Bonchie had the one that probably hit closest to the mark:

Just for comparison’s sake, here are Crenshaw’s distinctions:

Dan graduated from Tufts University in 2006, where he earned his Naval officer commission through Navy ROTC. He immediately reported to SEAL training in Coronado, CA, where he met his future wife, Tara, just a few months later. After graduating SEAL training, Dan deployed to Fallujah, Iraq to join SEAL Team Three, his first of five deployments overseas.

On Dan’s third deployment in 2012, his life changed forever. After six months of combat operations, Dan was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He was evacuated and awoke from his medically induced coma learning that his right eye had been destroyed in the blast and his left eye was still present, but badly damaged. Dan was completely blind and the doctors did not believe he would ever see again. Tara stood by him every day and night, keeping faith and praying he would see again. After several difficult surgeries, he eventually regained sight in his left eye, a miracle according to the head surgeon. Dan refused to quit and went on to deploy twice more, first back to the Middle East in 2014 and then South Korea in 2016.

Dan was medically retired in September of 2016, after ten years in the SEAL Teams. He left service with two Bronze Stars (one with Valor), the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor, among many other recognitions. Soon after, Dan completed his Master in Public Administration at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. In September of this year, he was back in Houston, volunteering for days on end in areas of Katy devastated by Hurricane Harvey. He saw first-hand the unthinkable losses that his neighbors suffered, but he also saw Texan grit and resilience. He wanted to do more, and this November Dan and Tara decided that the best way to serve the people of Texas would be in elected office.

And so he was.

Arnold, on the other hand, is a perpetually outraged left-wing actor and not-so-funny comedian best known for being Roseanne Barr’s ex.

Based on that information, it’s pretty clear who The Man is in this discussion. But I’ll leave that up to the readers to decide.

Cruz & Cassidy Introduce a Resolution Labeling Antifa a Terrorist Organization, But Here’s Why It’s Ridiculous

Westlake Legal Group hand-2593747_1280-620x418 Cruz & Cassidy Introduce a Resolution Labeling Antifa a Terrorist Organization, But Here’s Why It’s Ridiculous washington D.C. Violence Uncategorized Texas Ted Cruz republicans Media Louisiana law Judicial Front Page Stories Featured Story Fascism democrats Culture crime Congress civility Bill Cassidy antifa Allow Media Exception

 

 

On Thursday, Senators Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy introduced a resolution to formally label violent pro-fascism group Antifa a domestic terrorist organization.

It should be noted: That’s exactly what they are.

A catalyst for the move — though it wasn’t needed — was the Tacoma, Washington attack of a border detention center, wherein 69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen appeared with a rifle and tried to ignite a large propane tank.

Now-deceased Willem did manage to set fire to a car, and far-left Twitterers — twits for short, if you will) hailed him a martyr and a hero (here-o)

Another recent Antifa assault: The beating of conservative journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, which reportedly left him with a bleeding brain (here).

Ted Cruz explained via tweet:

“Antifa is a terrorist organization composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda through aggressive violence. Time and time again their actions have demonstrated that their central purpose is to inflict harm on those who oppose their views. Like any terrorist organization they choose to pursue their political ends through violence, fear & intimidation. They must be stopped. I’m proud to introduce this resolution w @SenBillCassidy to properly identify what Antifa are: domestic terrorists.”

Yes, they are.

And fascists.

Mr. Cassidy of Louisiana offered his own social media statement:

“Antifa is a domestic terror organization. This is a group of hateful, intolerant radicals pursuing their extreme agenda through violence. They are masked bigots, attacking others b/c they don’t agree with their ideas. The time to stop Antifa is NOW!”

On Bill’s official site, he notes the goofiness of having an ironic name:

“Antifa are terrorists, violent masked bullies who ‘fight fascism’ with actual fascism, protected by Liberal privilege.”

The resolution contains 5 points:

Now, therefore, be it resolved, that the Senate—

(1) calls for the groups and organizations across the country who act under the banner of Antifa to be designated as domestic terrorist organizations;
(2) unequivocally condemns the violent actions of Antifa groups as unacceptable acts for anyone in the United States;
(3) expresses the need for the peaceful communication of varied ideas in the United States;
(4) urges any group or organizations in the United States to voice its opinions without using violence or threatening the health, safety, or well-being of any other persons, groups, or law enforcement officers in the United States; and
(5) calls upon the Federal Government to redouble its efforts, using all available and appropriate tools, to combat the spread of all forms of domestic terrorism, including White supremacist terrorism.

That’s all fine and good. But the reality is that none of this should be necessary. True — the U.S. can’t have a bunch of black-masked goons running around committing assault and arson. But we already have a “resolution” for that: It’s called law enforcement; court; prison. A system to prevent violent fascism is already in place. None of these hooligans should’ve been allowed to do what they’ve done, from the outset. 

And if city and state officials aren’t willing to stop them now, because they haven’t been willing to stop them yet, how will a resolution make a difference?

The scenario reminds me of Alyssa Milano’s Christmas gift to the world — wherein she forgot there are police (here).

Thus far, it seems authorities and the media have sat back and allowed the fascism of Antifa to rule any street upon which they’ve decided to idiot.

Don Lemon’s given them a pass (here), and if you need a reminder of the insanity, please, please watch this interview.

The issue of Antifa isn’t about Left or Right, Democrat or Republican; it’s about liberty and public safety.

The government needs a resolution, alright, but not the congressional kind. It needs the resolve to stop the insane fascism of violence in the public square, regardless of who’s committing it.

Verbal MOAB: Watch as Marco Rubio Lays Waste to “Self Righteous Hypocrites” in the Media and Democratic Party

Westlake Legal Group Rubio-620x341 Verbal MOAB: Watch as Marco Rubio Lays Waste to “Self Righteous Hypocrites” in the Media and Democratic Party washington D.C. The Squad Social Media republicans Politics North Carolina Media Marco Rubio journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Florida Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Culture Congress AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

After a week of mainstream media outlets and Democrats alike (but I repeat myself) demanding Republicans respond with the “appropriate” condemnation of Trump’s controversial “Squad” tweets from Sunday and the “send her back” crowd chant from a North Carolina Trump rally on Wednesday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has had enough.

In a video posted to his Twitter feed on Thursday, Rubio talked about the media’s and left’s double standards when it comes to incendiary political comments and their demands for reactions. He also noted the media/left’s long history of falsely labeling Republican presidents and presidential candidates “racists” – including Republicans like Sen. Mitt Romney (UT) and the late Sen. John McCain (AZ), who they now claim to respect.

Fox News reports:

“So this is how it’s been working, the president says something and people cringe because you don’t like it, but then the other side- these left-wing politicians, people on the media, they go crazy with their outrage,” Rubio began his video message. “And they demand that you immediately answer what he said and answer the way they want you to answer.”

The Florida Republican then listed several examples of previous GOP presidents and presidential candidates like Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, John McCain, Mitt Romney, who “these same people” called “racist.”

“These are the same people, by the way, who one of their members of Congress from their party says that support for Israel is ‘all about the Benjamins’ and they couldn’t even pass a resolution condemning anti-Semitism by itself, but it took them less than 72 hours to pass a resolution condemning the president of the United State’s tweet as racist,” Rubio said.

He continued, “The hypocrisy, the self-righteousness outrages people too. And on top of it, you have these members, who are all Americans… but they’re also political bullies. They go around attacking people, calling other Democrats just like southern segregationists, but when you hit them back, it’s ‘because they’re women of color.’”

He concluded by asserting that he wasn’t “playing this game anymore.”

Watch the full video of Rubio’s remarks below:

Rubio’s rant was on point. He’s right that the hypocrisy of Democrats when it comes to practicing what they preach is staggering. And the frequent “women of color” card-playing is absurd, ridiculous, and insulting. Or, as Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) would say, “a really cheap shot.”

Perhaps most annoying and troubling of all is how the mainstream media joins in on the Democratic chorus as they water down the definition of the word “racism” to mean “Republican who disagrees with a person of color”, or “Republican who responds to attacks from persons of color.” Or, more to the point, simply “Republican.”

It’s shameful they’ve done this to the word, because real racism unfortunately still exists and will always exist in some form or another. But the media/left’s degrading the meaning of the word have made it so that real victims of racism and racial attacks will be doubted more often than not.

It’s a shame, and we can thank Democrats and their media accomplices for steering the country in that direction.

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.

Marble Halls & Silver Screens

An exclusive podcast from RedState about the connections of politics and entertainment, covering the stories from Burbank to The Beltway

It is our first episode back from the July 4th holiday, and Sarah was energized like a bunny with batteries shoved up its…uh, battery compartment. We tried to settle back into the routine while being loaded with content and filled with summertime frivolities.

Movies and entertainment were at the forefront, but there was enough idiocy in the political arena to also entertain us. For instance, we learned the hyper-capitalistic movie studio Disney is promoting a communist agenda! Additionally, the group of new arrivals in D.C. who the press wants in the Hall Of Fame already have behaved like talent-free rookies. We did have our fun with our return to the airwaves.

  • Brad kicked off the show with a review of the new movie release “Crawl”. He would have liked it more except for the pesky facts it was set in his home state of Florida. (Basements? REALLY?!)
  • The freshman “Squad” has turned into the Suicide Squad, as the bumbling ladies have managed to step on rakes, trip over themselves, and become fools at the feet of Trump.
  • As those on the left become desperate to hang the Jefferey Epstein scandal on Donald Trump the facts and realities only hurt their side. One actress even implicates herself in the process.
  • Sarah addresses the fact that we could not simply celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing. Some woke journalists had to find the woke problematics with that historic event.
  • On the subject of the press dumping trash on the lawn of good news, with the impending release of “The Lion King” the media was in a hot competition to see who could come up with the dumbest hot take on the problematics. (WaPo may have taken this prize.)
  • In Canada the arts-loving leftist activists are actually campaigning to have a movie removed from theaters. The pro-life drama “Unplanned” has been protested, but at least one theater chain CEO had the stones to tell these cranks to grow up.
  • During our absence “Stranger Things 3” came out and we turned that show upside down, as it were. (See what we did there???)

Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, asks questions to Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, during a hearing of the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)

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 Dems Pearl Clutch Over “Send Her Back” Chant, the Same Left Circulates #DeportGorka Hashtag

Westlake Legal Group AP_17313569752350-620x347 As Dems Pearl Clutch Over “Send Her Back” Chant, the Same Left Circulates #DeportGorka Hashtag Sebastian Gorka republicans Politics Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump Deportation democrats chant antisemitism Allow Media Exception

Right now, the left and its media are fuming over the chant in North Carolina that erupted during a Trump rally that saw attendees repeating “send her back” in reference to Rep. Ilhan Omar.

My social media feed is filthy with it, and claims that this is proof that the right is as racist as they’ve always claimed. They virtue signal that kicking Omar out of the country is a horrible thing to suggest and that this is, in fact, her country now.

The left is lighting torches and grabbing pitchforks over it. Or at least, they will. First, they have to get back from their #DeportGorka rally.

Yes, the left that is currently virtue signaling over the horrid concept of deporting an immigrant back to their birth country over things she said is also the same left that was willing to deport an immigrant back to their birth country over things he said.

Sebastion Gorka, deputy assistant to Trump in 2017 and now an outspoken right-leaning analyst who has become famous in his own right, seems to have the ability to drive the left absolutely insane. With that power, he’s actually caused members of the left to shout for his forced deportation back to the UK where he’s originally from.

In fact, the left created an entire hashtag around it with #DeportGorka all the way back in…this week.

This goes on for pages, so feel free to check out the hashtag for yourself.

Gorka, like Trump, never said anything racist, yet they’re throwing accusations at him of Nazism. Meanwhile, Omar can’t seem to stop speaking badly about Jewish people, and is generally very antisemitic. In fact, Omar recently compared Israel to Nazi Germany, which is so out of the bounds of reality that it’s hard to understand why she’s not locked up in a padded room.

Still, the left continues pretending Omar is somewhere between an angel and an all-American hero who is having evil racist chants thrown at her at Trump rallies for no reason. To be clear, the chant has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with Omar’s apparent dislike of America and seeming appreciation of terrorist groups. Even so, Trump wasn’t a fan of the chant, and as I’ve written, neither was I, but I digress.

The hypocrisy here is entirely apparent. The left can encourage deportation of anyone on the right strictly for wrong-think without any blowback. In fact, they’ve tried to have Gorka deported officially back in 2017 under claims that he belonged to a Hungarian far-right group. However, if the right suggests deportation to a famous Democrat who refuses to condemn Al Qaeda and calls Trump supporters racist while spouting antisemitic rhetoric, that’s suddenly crossing the line.

Trump Saves Lives!

Yet, you would never know it by press reporting. The United States Center for Disease Control just reported that for the first time in almost three decades, deaths in the United States due to overdoses on drugs have fallen, according to a Los Angeles Times Article yesterday. From the article

U.S. overdose deaths last year likely fell for the first time in nearly three decades, preliminary statistics suggest.

Nearly 68,000 drug overdose deaths were reported throughout the country last year, according to provisional figures posted Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The number may go up as more investigations are completed, but the agency expects the final tally will not exceed 69,000.

Overdose deaths had been climbing each year since 1990, topping 70,000 in 2017.

Deeper into the article we find (emphasis mine)

The improvement was driven by a drop in deaths from heroin and prescription painkillers. Those decreases were offset somewhat by continuing increases in deaths involving fentanyl, cocaine and stimulants like methamphetamines.

This. Is. Huge. Although correlation isn’t causation and it’s pretty early on, it appears that President Trump’s Opioid Epidemic fight is getting some good traction.

As always, the liberal LA Times pole vaults over mouse droppings to avoid crediting Trump, again, emphasis mine.

Strategies to reduce drug overdose deaths have included tougher policing, treatment program expansions, policies to limit opioid painkiller prescriptions and wider distribution of the overdose-reversing drug naloxone.

Haffajee and other researchers are trying to figure out what measures are most responsible for the slight improvement.

Not even a mention of the President’s program. Go figure.
