Israel Barring Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib Was the Right Move

This morning, news broke that Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib were being barred from entry into Israel. This has set off a firestorm on the left, who after years of cheering on cities and countries telling Trump he’s not welcome, have suddenly decided it’s deeply wrong to bar political figures from entry.

To those complaining, security in Israel is simply a game where only appearances and news headlines matter In reality, it’s much more serious than that. Any provocation can lead to violence and people dying. Is that worth letting a couple of anti-Israel, pro-BDS Americans walk around for photo-ops to push propaganda for Palestinian terrorists?

The answer is no, it’s not worth it. Omar and Tlaib have had an opportunity to show a level head when it comes to Israel and they’ve instead pushed a movement that seeks the destruction of the Jewish state while delving in their own frequent anti-Semitism. Am I really supposed to be mad at the Israelis for not wanting to host them? The United States doesn’t grant visas to people who seek the overthrow of our government and Israel shouldn’t be expected to do so just because these two women happen to be members of the US Congress.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu defended his decision this morning.

As a free and vibrant democracy, Israel is open to critics and criticism, with one exception: Israeli law prohibits the entry into Israel of those who call for and work to impose boycotts on Israel, as do other democracies that prohibit the entry of people who seek to harm the country. In fact, in the past the US did this to an Israeli member ofKnesset, as well as to other public figures from around the world.

Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar are leading activists in promoting the legislation of boycotts against Israel in the American Congress. Only a few days ago, we received their itinerary for their visit in Israel, which revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy. For instance: they listed the destination of their trip as Palestine and not Israel, and unlike all Democratic and Republican members of Congress who have visited Israel, they did not request to meet any Israeli officials, either from the government or the opposition.

A week ago, Israel warmly welcomed some 70 Democratic and Republican members of Congress, who expressed broad bipartisan support for Israel, which was also demonstrated a month ago in a resounding bipartisan vote against BDS in Congress.

However, the itinerary of the two Congresswomen reveals that the sole purpose of their visit is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it.

In addition, the organization that is funding their trip is Miftah, which is an avid supporter of BDS, and among whose members are those who have expressed support for terrorism against Israel.

Netanyahu is exactly correct. Their planned trip was nothing but a propaganda stunt meant to stir up further resentment against Israel. They didn’t even have enough respect to refer to Israel by name, instead saying they were visiting Palestine (which doesn’t exist).

The trip was being paid for by Miftah, which is an anti-Israel organization whose members have supported terrorism in the past. You’d think two Congressional members being hosted by such a group would make our media uneasy, but they apparently think it’s fine.

Part of the concern over the visit was a possible visit to the Temple Mount with Palestinian authorities. This would have been a disaster because either Israel allows it and legitimizes a terrorist government’s claim over the site, or they bar them from the site and violence inevitably erupts from the Palestinians.

This is the kind of game playing Omar and Tlaib were obviously seeking and Israel was 100% right to shut their trip down. I hope the pressure doesn’t cause an about-face here from Israel. They owe these women nothing.

Ouch: Gaffetastic Joe Biden Is Making so Many Flubs That Some Allies Want to Scale Back His Appearances

The fact that Joe Biden is a gaffe machine is well-known in Democratic and Republican circles alike, and in the past his allies usually laughed them off and chalked them up to just “Joe being Joe.”

But while his campaign surrogates have continued to grasp on to the “Joe being Joe” excuse in recent days after a series of high-profile flubs that happened over the course of a little over a week, some of his allies are panicking – and suggesting his appearances be cut back.

The Hill reports:

Biden has a tendency to make the blunders late in the day, his allies say, particularly after a long swing on the road, like he had last week in Iowa. They say something needs to be done to give the candidate more down time as the campaign intensifies in the fall.

“He needs to be a strong force on the campaign trail, but he also has to pace himself,” said one ally who has talked to members of the campaign team and others in the broader Biden World about how to move forward.

The ally said it was unclear whether the campaign would make any changes to Biden’s schedule, particularly because Biden was criticized recently for not doing as many events as his Democratic rivals.

[…]

Biden’s age — he’ll be 77 in November — has been seen by some as a liability ever since he launched his campaign earlier this year. While he has been billed by those around him as the most electable Democrat to take on President Trump next year, some wonder if he has the zeal to compete.

“A lot of people are nervous that he’s lost some of his mojo,” said one major Democratic donor. “They’re getting nervous about him going toe to toe with Trump. But the problem is, there doesn’t seem to be an alternative.”

Columnist Larry Elder compiled a short list of some of the gaffes Biden has made just this month:

“Those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president.” — Biden, Aug. 10, 2019. The Parkland shooting was a year after Biden left office.

“We choose unity over division. We choose science over fiction. We choose truth over facts.” — Biden, Aug. 8, 2019.

“Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.” — Biden, Aug. 8, 2019.

[…]

“You had people like Margaret Tha — excuse me. You had people like the former chairman and the leader of the party in Germany … Angela Merkel.” — Biden, Aug. 8, 2019, campaigning in Iowa.

Maybe some of them can be simply chalked up to Biden losing steam after a long day of campaigning, but the one about the Parkland students visiting him “when I was vice president” after the Parkland shooting is the one that stands out as the most troublesome. That’s not juts a flub, and it’s not merely a lie.

It suggests he can’t remember the dates he was vice president, and perhaps really believes that the students visited him in that capacity after the shooting. I don’t recall a mass shooting at a high school during the time he was vice president that would have precipitated a visit from some of the students in the aftermath, certainly not one he could have mixed up with the Parkland shootings.

In fact, the aggressive political activism of some of the students after the Parkland shootings happened was widely praised by the mainstream media at the time because it hadn’t been done before.

A couple of months ago, President Trump insinuated there might be a more troubling reason why President Obama was not outright endorsing his former veep for President that went beyond merely not wanting to show favoritism before the primaries even started.

After the series of gaffes committed by Biden earlier this month, CNN‘s Jake Tapper reported that even some Democrats were starting to be troubled by the former veep’s error-prone nature:

If Biden continues his gaffe streak, more people including Democrats are going to be openly speculating as to just what that “something else” might be.

Here’s a Totally Not Insane Video of Liberals Reacting to Conservative Signs

Westlake Legal Group horses-1348383_1280-620x269 Here’s a Totally Not Insane Video of Liberals Reacting to Conservative Signs youtube violent Video signs Politics Liberals insane Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story deranged democrats Daily Caller Crazy Conservatives

One of the odder occurrences after Donald Trump’s election has been the propensity for certain liberals to simply lose it. Who can forget the viral video of the woman screaming at the sky as Donald Trump was sworn in?

Just in case you haven’t been exposed to the levels of insanity currently propagating on college campuses and within left wing activism, the Daily Caller has put together a montage of just how crazy even the mere site of conservative thought is driving people on the left.

Some of these even surprised me.

There’s a good case that most of these people should be committed. The vulgarity, the violent outbursts, and the inability to control one’s emotions. At one point, you see a young women cursing and then deciding that poll dancing on a street sign made sense in her protest of ICE. At another, you see a woman shrieking in terror at the mere site of a conservative holding a sign. People run over to make sure she’s not being harmed. Nope, she’s just that unhinged.

Politics is doing something to our society and it’s not good for a lot of people. If your reaction to those on the opposite side of the aisle is to legitimately lose your mind, screaming and flailing, you shouldn’t be following politics. You should be asking yourself why your life is so devoid of purpose that such a reaction would happen from within you.

Stacey Abrams: The Grift That Keeps On Grifting

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-1-620x317 Stacey Abrams: The Grift That Keeps On Grifting Stacey Abrams grifter Georgia Front Page Stories Featured Story elections democrats Allow Media Exception

Anderson Theatre in Marietta, Ga., Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018. Winfrey visited Georgia on Thursday to canvass neighborhoods in Metro Atlanta and show her support for gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. (Alyssa Pointer /Atlanta Journal-Constitution via AP)

Stacey Abrams is trying very hard to stay relevant, despite the fact that she lost a gubernatorial race (but hasn’t admitted it). She is still making appearances before whatever media will talk to her and let her tell her sob story. The best part is that the media will keep having her own out of a tremendous sense of guilt they feel for ignoring her and focusing on Beto O’Rourke.

But, Abrams is a particularly fascinating grifter and is especially good at making sure she stays relevant and continues to raise money. Objectively, it is something the Democrats should worry about. It’s something they should tell her to stop doing. But, as a partisan, I hope she keeps on doing what she’s doing.

Here’s Abrams’ plan: Keep relevant, keep raising money, and run for governor of Georgia in 2022. She was close last time, and I am pretty sure she thinks she can make it happen next time. Of course, Georgia governor Brian Kemp is thus far a man praised for a good many things, like teacher pay raises, including diversity in his appointments, and working in non-confrontational ways with the rest of state government. If he keeps going like this, he’ll end up being one of the most popular governors Georgia’s ever had.

So, Abrams has to continue with this tirade about stolen elections, minority voter suppression, and the like. The problem for Democrats is that she is doing this at the most pivotal time in the national party’s existence: They are trying to raise money to fight Trump. She exists right now solely to raise money, but that money should be going to them.

None of the Democrats will dare to raise any objections to Abrams’ campaign of “Me, Myself, and I,” because they don’t want to be the ones to tell a black woman to stop being a victim and start helping the team. They will let this continue because that’s the box they as a party have trapped themselves in, and they can’t make this a team effort until the other candidates do.

And so Abrams will keep appearing in the media to make nonsensical claims about voter suppression and lost ballot access, use cheap buzzwords meant to rile up the most rabid of the Democrats’ base – a base that should be excited for one of the three hundred or so Democrats running for president – all to raise her profile and her campaign’s bank account.

That will be money not going to Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, or any of the others. That is money that will sit for three years in a campaign’s or non-profit’s account and won’t be touched until she decides to run for governor.

I, for one, hope she keeps at it.

Immigration Enforcement on the Job Site Works
It looks like the Democrat canard, “Americans just won’t do those jobs,” has been put to rest—and it didn’t take long at all. As I predicted, rounding up illegals working in American facilities and sending them home would likely have a positive effect on the prospects of some American workers. From yesterday’s WAPT Channel 16 ABC News

FOREST, Miss. —
A Mississippi food plant that was part of one of the largest immigration raids in U.S. history held a job fair Monday.

Looks like Koch Foods is trying quickly make up for that sudden worker shortage. As I predicted, this would cause the hiring of more Americans and likely have an impact on wages.

From USA Today

Kamerio Whitley, a resident of the nearby town of Morton, spoke to reporters after he left the building. He said there were several positions available at the plant, including forklift operators. Whitley said he applied for a job working at the plant’s rehang table, where workers hang frozen chickens. The job starts at $12 an hour, which is decent pay for the area, Whitley said. “That’s not bad to start, and it can always go up,” he said.

“Decent pay for the area…That’s not bad to start, and it can always go up.” Indeed. My bet is that it will indeed go up. If President Trump continues these type of operations that protect American workers by rounding up illegal aliens and sending them home, then there will be somewhat of a labor shortage. That will cause a number of things to happen:

—Increases in starting wages to get Americans off the bench and back into the workforce.

—This might cause some modest price increases, which in turn will…

—Cause some investment in technology to support those higher wages.

—Workers re-entering the workforce will take some pressure off of the “safety net,” translating into Federal & State budget savings (which will, of course, be promptly spent by both sides to purchase more votes).

By attacking multiple issues simultaneously, President Trump has had the effect of throwing three strikes in a row in bowling, where he gets more “points” for each policy he executes than he would if these policies weren’t all mutually supportive. And just think, it all started with some modest regulatory and tax reform.

Stacey Abrams: Republicans could send off-duty law enforcement into polling places next year to intimidate minority voters

Westlake Legal Group sa-1 Stacey Abrams: Republicans could send off-duty law enforcement into polling places next year to intimidate minority voters voter The Blog suppression Stacey Abrams Polling places MSNBC law enforcement democrats

Via the Free Beacon, there’s some agita online today about Abrams floating another hair-raising theory of corruption at the polls after insisting without evidence for months that she’s the rightfully elected governor of Georgia. Although, interestingly, she seems to be backing off that last claim now — somewhat, allowing last night that “I don’t know that empirically I would have won” last year.

Does that mean the rest of the party is now free to punt on the burning question of who the “real” governor is, or do racial politics require them to hug the “Stacey won” talking point tight even as she’s inched away from it?

Anyway, she’s on firmer empirical ground in worrying about off-duty patrolmen turning up in majority-minority districts in 2020 on behalf of the GOP. It sounds outlandish but that actually happened in New Jersey in 1981. Armed off-duty cops showed up at the polls in black neighborhoods wearing armbands identifying them as part of the “National Ballot Security Task Force,” which sounds like an official government agency but was actually just an outfit thrown together by the RNC. (There’s a Wikipedia page and everything.) It created enough of a stir that the RNC entered into a consent decree the following year in which it promised not to use such tactics for 35 years. The consent decree lapsed in 2017 and the DNC went to court to try to get it extended but lost. So, in theory, the RNC is free to try this again. Whether they’d dare do that in an age of ubiquitous smartphones and social media, when evidence of the “Ballot Security Task Force” staring down black voters in line to vote could and would be streamed in real-time on Election Day, is a separate question. But that’s the genesis of Abrams’s complaint.

The most newsworthy soundbite from her in the media yesterday wasn’t this, by the way, it was her answer to the Times when asked if she’d agree to be VP if asked. Answer: Hell yes.

So in saying you’re open to other opportunities, that includes any potential selection for vice president?

I would be honored to be considered by any nominee.

But my responsibility is to focus on the primary. And that means using the primary as an opportunity to build the apparatus to fight voter suppression. Because in the end, no matter where I fit, no matter which ones of our nominees win, if we haven’t fought this scourge, if we haven’t pushed back against Moscow Mitch and his determination to block any legislation that would cure our voting machines, then we are all in a world of trouble.

The hard truth for her is that she’s not an obvious pick for any member of the top tier. She’s a good demographic balance for Biden and Sanders but they’re each so old that her lack of federal or statewide experience would attract intense scrutiny. She’s not such a great demographic balance for Warren and Harris since Dems would worry that an all-woman ticket might scare off some working-class voters in the midwest. Her best pairing, I think, would be with someone like Buttigieg or Beto, running as part of a “youth” ticket where you wouldn’t need to worry that the president won’t make it through a full term. Plus, Buttigieg has no federal or statewide experience either; voters will have to clear that hurdle psychologically in voting for him much more so than they will with her as VP.

Exit question: When was the last time someone without federal, statewide, or military experience was put on a ticket *as VP*? Trump lacked all three as well, but Trump had to run the gauntlet of a national primary election. Republican voters sized him up and declared him worthy notwithstanding his lack of government credentials. Abrams is aiming to land on the ticket as an appointee, not as the choice of Democratic voters. I think the last person to pull that off was Sargent Shriver, George McGovern’s VP in 1972, although Shriver had served as ambassador to France and as head of the Peace Corps so he’d had some nominal federal duties before he was named. Abrams would be breaking new ground in the VP slot.

Jeffrey Epstein Had a Painting of Bill Clinton In a Blue Dress For Some Reason

Westlake Legal Group 34_politics002-drew-angerer-edited-580.v1-620x414 Jeffrey Epstein Had a Painting of Bill Clinton In a Blue Dress For Some Reason weird sex trafficking report Politics Pedophile Island painting Jeffrey Epstein investigation Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Blue Dress Bill Clinton

A new report, including pictures, came out today exposing that Jeffrey Epstein had a painting of Bill Clinton on the wall of his New York mansion. That would be weird enough, but the painting also included the odd detail of the former President posing while wearing a blue dress. I guess this was a humorous throwback to the Monica Lewinsky saga?

Jeffrey Epstein had a bizarre portrait which appeared to be of Bill Clinton in a dress hanging in his Manhattan mansion, DailyMailTV can reveal.

The picture depicting the former president apparently lounging on a chair in the Oval Office, wearing red heels and posing suggestively in a blue dress redolent of Monica Lewinsky was in a room off the stairway of the Upper East Side townhouse.

The painting was secretly snapped inside the pedophile’s lavish $56 million home in October 2012, four years after Epstein completed his sweetheart deal for prostitution of a minor and seven years before he was accused of running a sex trafficking ring of underage girls.

Well, alrighty then. We can probably just close up shop on the internet for the day because this can’t be topped in its absurdity.

Bill Clinton had numerous connections to Epstein, including taking 27 flights on his “Lolita Express” private jet and being pegged as present on Epstein’s island, famous for its sex trafficking. The Daily Beast also exposed a rash of private meetings, including events at the White House during the 90s.

What all that adds up to is currently unknown but suspicions have been rightly raised. The news of this painting just adds another layer to their relationship. You’d think they were pretty close if Epstein had this joke painting hanging on his wall. We’ll have to see where the evidence actually takes us though.

In the meantime, if I never see Bill Clinton in a dress again, it’ll be too soon.

Their Rules: Stacey Abrams Shouldn’t Be Considered a VP Candidate Because She Can’t Get Over 2018 (Video)

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-620x317 Their Rules: Stacey Abrams Shouldn’t Be Considered a VP Candidate Because She Can’t Get Over 2018 (Video) Stacey Abrams Social Media Politics North Carolina Media Georgia Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture Campaigns Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020

Failed 2018 gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) has been in the news a lot recently.

As Red State‘s Sarah Lee wrote on Monday, Abrams is still claiming the election she lost to Brian Kemp was “stolen.” She also announced this week that she will not be running for president in 2020 and instead will focus her efforts on combatting alleged voter suppression.

On top of that, she told the New York Times that she would “be honored to be considered” for vice president by any of the Democratic presidential contenders, even though back in March she ruled out a potential Biden/Abrams ticket, suggesting she didn’t want to play second fiddle to anyone.

Now we all know it has been standard procedure ever since her election was “stolen” for Democrats and fake “conservatives” to treat Ms. Abrams with the most utmost reverence, but by the standards they wanted to hold candidate Donald Trump to in 2016 she should not be eligible for consideration as a vice presidential nominee.

Democrats and their media enablers repeatedly suggested that Trump saying he wasn’t sure he’d accept the results of the 2016 election was an indicator that he was a “sore loser”, a “threat to democracy.”

Candidate Clinton was one of them:

Abrams, ironically, was another:

She (as most Democrats did) changed her tune on the problematic issue of not accepting election results after the 2018 Georgia’ governor’s race, because Democrats never hold themselves to their own standards – and they know their mainstream media allies very rarely question them on it when it happens, anyway.

Since that time, just about any Democrat you can get in front of a microphone and a camera has sided with Abrams, claiming she’d be the governor of Georgia right now if it weren’t for “voter suppression” (which, by the way, is not true).

With all that in mind, the Free Beacon video mashup done earlier this year of Democrats “holding” Abrams to their (selective) standards when it comes to questioning election results is definitely worth revisiting and rewatching as Abrams attempts to increase her visibility in the coming weeks and months on the national stage:

Your rules, Democrats. Your rules.

Jerry Nadler Tries To Mislead A District Court Judge And The DOJ, Gets Clobbered

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., gives his opening statement as former special counsel Robert Mueller testifies before the House Judiciary Committee hearing on his report on Russian election interference, on Capitol Hill, Wednesday, July 24, 2019, in Washington. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon)

 

Americans have moved on from the Russian collusion hoax, but House Democrats just can’t seem to let go.

House Judiciary chairman, Jerry Nadler, has two goals at the moment. He would like former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify before his committee. Additionally, he is seeking the secret grand jury information from the Mueller investigation.

In order to prevent “attempts to game the system by shopping” for a friendly judge, cases are assigned to judges randomly. If two cases are related, it is sometimes possible to link them. This would be advantageous if a sympathetic judge had been assigned to the first case and the plaintiff believes the judge would rule favorably on the second case. However, the cases must be related.

Nadler tried to link the two above mentioned cases. The first, regarding the subpoena for Don McGahn, is a civil case and the second, their request to view grand jury material is a federal case. The House Judiciary panel claims the cases are related because they are both part of their “impeachment investigation” of Trump. They identify McGahn as the “most important witness, other than the President, to the key events that are the focus of the Judiciary Committee’s investigation.”

In a one-two punch, Nadler’s request was torpedoed by both the DOJ and the Washington, D.C. District Court Chief Judge, Beryl Howell.

In a Tuesday court filing, the DOJ alleged that Nadler and the other Democratic members of the Judiciary Committee were trying to exploit this exception. They argued:

The panel improperly sought to connect the McGahn case to the grand jury case simply because they’re both part of their investigation of President Trump.

This later-filed, subpoena-enforcement suit involves no issues of fact or law common to the earlier Grand Jury application, nor does it focus on a common event or transaction such that the matters would be ‘related.’

On Wednesday, Judge Howell followed suit. She wrote:

At first blush, the House Judiciary Committee’s view that the related case rule applies is understandable. Nonetheless, closer examination demonstrates that these connections between the two cases are too superficial and attenuated for the instant McGahn Subpoena Case to qualify.

The committee’s request to unseal secret grand jury information from former special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe has to do with the application of the law under the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, while the McGahn case is a civil matter dealing with enforcing a subpoena where immunity has been asserted.

The DOJ also claimed:

The term ‘related’ refers to cases that have ‘common issues of fact or stem from a common event or transaction. The committee gets it backwards because they are trying to relate completely unrelated cases simply because it filed them in service of its overarching desire to bring various matters together in its investigation of the President.

McGahn’s refusal to comply with a subpoena is the real ‘event or transaction’ in this case, not the Committee’s asserted ‘impeachment investigation.’

Howell echoed the DOJ’s argument, noting that “the legal issues in the grand jury case, are entirely absent from the McGahn case.”

Both Howell and the DOJ made the point that McGahn refused to testify in May, yet Nadler’s committee “waited until August – soon after filing the grand jury information case – to sue over it.”

When actress Bette Miller isn’t shrieking about President Trump allegedly “inciting” deranged racist gunmen to “do his dirty work”, the left-wing hacktivist is engaging in other liberal double standards. Most notable among them is victim-shaming conservative women who have shared their #MeToo stories, and going on racist rants about black Trump supporters.

Now, it’s quite possible that Midler does know that McConnell is married to Chao, and wrote the tweet anyway. It wouldn’t be the first time a female Democrat pretended a conservative female “didn’t count” because they refused to march in lockstep with the feminist left.

Either way, it’s not a good look for Midler, who really should spend more time learning how to act like a normal, civilized human being for a change.
