Ilhan Omar Seems Determined to Make Minnesota Vote Republican

Minnesota hasn’t voted for a Republican for president since 1972. In 2016, Donald Trump had he closest call of any GOP candidate since Ronald Reagan in 1984 losing the state by ~1.5 percentage points. President Trump is predicting that he’ll take Minnesota in 2020 and in that quest he has an improbable ally, Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar. This is how Trump announced it:

Part of this is typical Trumpian bluster but a large part of it isn’t. As mt colleague, Bonchie, pointed out, Omar’s favorable/unfavorable numbers in Minnesota are in the toilet.

(BTW, I have lots of questions about this poll. Like how can she be -24 among men and -11 among women and still be +30 among Democrats? I knew a lot of Democrats were sexless drones but I never thought the number was this high.)

If this poll is even remotely accurate and Trump can force the Minnesota Democrat party, along with national Democrats, to support and defend Omar then here radical stances and anti-Semitism could easily tip the balance in Minnesota given that Minnesota has a much better economy now than it did in 2016 and Trump has the power of the incumbency.

Politico says this about the poll:

A CBS News/YouGov poll conducted last week found that while Omar has net unfavorability ratings among Americans who know her, she’s popular among Democrats and especially liberal Democrats who know her. The same poll found that a majority of Americans disapproved of Trump’s Twitter attacks on Omar and three other minority congresswomen in which he said that they should “go back” to the countries from which they came (despite all but Omar having been born in the United States).

But it seems that instances like this, in which Omar refers to Somalia as “my country” are going to make President Trump’s tweet seem less and less without basis.

Politico also touts

Following Trump’s invectives, and his singling her out at a campaign rally days later, Omar was greeted by a crowd of more than 100 people at her hometown airport last week.

They could have rounded up more that 100 people by just handing out free coffee.

This ambiguity in her national allegiance along with the original reporting done by the guys at PowerlineBlog, reporting that was shamelessly ripped off without attribution by an alleged conservative outlet, on Omar’s marriage to her brother are going to receive a lot more attention this election cycle than they would in the past because Trump is focused on Minnesota and his tweets can’t be ignored.

Ilhan Omar Wants to Guarantee Abortions for Illegal Immigrants Because Everything Is Stupid

The vileness of the left isn’t really surprising anymore, but you are still left wondering just how far they are willing to go.

On the topic of illegal immigration, we’ve seen them endorse open borders, decriminalizing of illegal crossings, and free healthcare for illegal immigrants. Those things alone are so illogical and counter productive that you’d hope it would satisfy their left-wing urges for at least a few years.

That’s not the case though. The crazy train is only accelerating, which means that the left have moved from free healthcare for illegal aliens to Illegal aliens must have access to abortion in the span of just a few weeks.

The entire premise of the article Omar is linking is that illegal immigrants, fearing deportation and not having the necessary resources, are avoiding “reproductive healthcare,” including abortions. Sure, they give a nod to pre-natal care, but we all know the real issue at play here because it’s the one most focused on.

As I wrote this morning, support for providing illegal immigrants with free healthcare is extremely low (only 33% support with a slim majority of even Democrats against). How low should one assume support for giving them taxpayer funded abortions would be? Perhaps a polling company could bother asking that since it’s being made an issue.

What makes this all especially ridiculous is that the U.S. government is about to pass an awful budget deal that puts our deficit over one trillion dollars in 2020. All parties share the blame for such a travesty, but on this specific topic, the fiscal realities show we simply can not afford to start handing out free healthcare and abortions to every person in the word who manages to sneak across the border (which Democrats want decriminalized, effectively doing away with all enforcement).

I would also be remiss if I wrote an article discussing abortion without pointing out the fact that the procedure involves killing a child in the womb. A scientifically provable, separate human being with separate DNA is being scrambled and sucked up with a hose. Democrats inexplicably support this procedure up until the point of birth now (and some even after birth). That’s pure depravity and history isn’t going to be kind to those who supported such.

But this is the modern Democrat party. Something as mundane as the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal funding for abortions and enjoys widespread support among Americans, must now be rejected or the left will savage you. Their radicalism isn’t going to stop and the most insane portions of their party are taking center stage.

Cuban Democrat Accused of Racism by Democratic Ga. Rep. Erica Thomas Considers Filing a Defamation Suit

Erica Thomas Considers Filing a Defamation Suit Social Media racism Politics North Carolina Media Georgia Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Erica Thomas democrats Culture Allow Media Exception

Ga. State Rep. Erica Thomas (D) and Georgia resident Eric Sparkes (D). Screen grab via WSB-TV.

The Georgia man accused of racism and “verbal assault” by Democratic state lawmaker Erica Thomas is fed up with the controversy and is considering filing a defamation lawsuit against her.

CBS 46 reports:

In a statement Monday, Eric Sparkes told CBS46 he’s “in the process of exploring with attorneys a defamation lawsuit against her.”

The argument happened Saturday at a Publix in Mableton. Sparkes claims he simply pointed out to a shopper, whom he says he didn’t recognize as a state lawmaker, that she had too many items in the lane designated for shoppers with 10 items or fewer.

State Rep. Erica Thomas acknowledges she had too many items, but she said she explained to the man that she’s 9-months pregnant and has trouble standing for long periods of time. Both Thomas and Sparkes admit they exchanged words and both left the store.

[…]

After Thomas’s [Monday] news conference, Sparkes sent CBS46 the following statement:

“Ms. Thomas has taken an innocuous situation that began on my part to be about being inconsiderate and turned into a national case about race over night. Ms. Thomas accuses me of telling her to go back to wherever. Those words were never spoken. She backtracked slightly and now is changing her story. I am in the process of exploring with attorneys a defamation lawsuit against her.”

Thomas appeared at the Publix location on Saturday to talk about the alleged incident to reporters, but Sparkes – who says he is a Cuban Democrat – decided to show up, too, and things got heated:

During that interview with WSB-TV, Thomas backtracked on a key claim she initially made about what was said:

With the TV cameras rolling, Thomas repeatedly accused Sparkes of telling her to “go back” — and he denied using that language and said he was a Latino Democrat. In a subsequent interview with Channel 2 Action News, Thomas seemed to hedge her remarks.

“I don’t want to say he said, ‘Go back to your country,’ or ‘Go back to where you came from.’ But he was making those types of references is what I remember,” she told the station.

Watch:

In a Monday presser, Thomas denied backtracking on her statement in any way, but comparison videos of how her story has evolved tell a different story:

Thomas’s attorneys have called on Publix to release any and all videos of the incident. The videos reportedly do not have audio.

PolitiFact Clowns Itself by Calling Right’s Claim that AOC Was Crying Over an Empty Parking Lot “False”

Westlake Legal Group AOC3-620x408 PolitiFact Clowns Itself by Calling Right’s Claim that AOC Was Crying Over an Empty Parking Lot “False” viral road Politifact Politics photo parking lot Media Front Page Stories Featured Story False Narrative democrats AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cotez

A neat thing that PolitiFact does to help create a narrative is labeling minute things that the right claims as “false,” while completely ignoring the overall story.

A solid instance happened on Monday when PolitiFact decided to tackle the viral image of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez crying behind a gate at the injustices she saw beyond it. Only photos showed that she wasn’t crying over the plight of children or migrant families, it was literally an paved, empty space. It was one of the biggest jokes on AOC by AOC.

For all intents and purposes, the fervor around the photos had worn down because a joke is only funny for so long. For some reason, however, PolitiFact still isn’t over it, and wanted to rate the right’s claim about it.

Well…they wanted to rate part of it.

PolitiFact rated the claim by the right that AOC was crying over a parking lot as “False” because she wasn’t crying over a parking lot, it was a road:

A viral image of Ocasio-Cortez at a 2018 demonstration at a Texas town on the U.S.-Mexico border includes the caption, “AOC weeps over empty parking lot.”

Photographers at the scene who took photos of Ocasio-Cortez say she was not facing a parking lot. Rather she was just beyond the port of entry for the Tornillo facility, and she standing on a road that led to the Tornillo tent complex, which was in the line of her gaze, as she stood at the fence. Pictures by other outlets also confirm the location.

We rate this claim False.

Well, thanks be to our benevolent information distribution overlords. With this information in hand we now know that the right are a bunch of lying liars with lie about everything. Telling us she was staring at a parking lot when it was really a road. How vile.

Just a reminder, this is the same PolitiFact that wanted to remind you that memes aren’t real, like the kind you see of Joe Biden photoshopped into kissing women from behind.

Here’s the kicker, however. Whether they meant to or not, PolitiFact is misleading people. Many people may see the headline and decide right off the bat that the claim that AOC was crying over nothing is false and reaffirm that what she saw was horrific, thus making her a more credible source in their minds.

PolitiFact is splitting hairs. So what if it was a road and not a parking lot? That’s a difference that could be hashed out in a Twitter thread by randoms arguing over semantics, but for a website supposedly dedicated to routing out the truth, this seems like a minor point to put focus on. That they spent time on it at all seems a bit weird till you read the headline they used.

“No, this isn’t a photo of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez crying over a parking lot,” it says in big, bold letters.

They’re not wrong, but it’s a bit vague on the point. Anyone reading the headline may walk away with the impression that AOC was actually crying over something substantial. They don’t need to click and read, they have all the information they need.

And that, folks, is how a false narrative is fostered.

New Poll Tests Support for Reparations and Open Borders, Here’s How That Went

Almost a month ago, the Democrats had their first debate on MSNBC. It was everything you’d expect, with every major player supporting every crazed liberal policy you could think of.

While we saw all of the candidates endorse free healthcare for illegal immigrants, presumably because we aren’t already in enough debt, there were two other issues that have become litmus tests for the Democratic primary as well. That being reparations for descendants of slaves and decriminalizing illegal border crossings, which is defacto open borders.

Common sense would tell you those positions can’t be very popular with the average American and common sense would be right.

Support for reparations clocks in at only 27%. Other Democrat policy proposals like free healthcare for illegal immigrants also don’t fare well. Only 33% support such a program. Even less support a basic income of $1000 a month, clocking in at only 26%.

As I wrote several months ago, I believe the case for reparations is simply not there. You’d be punishing people who had nothing to do with slavery to reward people who were not even alive at the time of slavery. It’d cause incredible resentment and civil unrest, which is the opposite of what reparations is supposed to accomplish.

Other progressive staples, like healthcare for illegal immigrants, just make no sense at all. If you start offering everyone who’s not a citizen free healthcare benefits, it will serve as a magnet for people to cross illegally. Couple that with decriminalizing illegal border crossings and you have no sovereignty left. To some that may seem compassionate, but it’s not compassionate to accelerate the bankrupting of the United States, which would ultimately hurt the entire word in unfathomable ways.

Here’s the specific numbers on the issues dealing with the border.

If you turn illegal crossings into just a ticket and release into the interior, that’s open borders. Democrats and the media may screech at that description, but it’s simply truth. In fact, many of the Democrat presidential candidates, including all the top tier, endorsed the idea that they would not deport people who only crossed the border illegally. Again, that can only be described as open borders.

Of course, this poll isn’t all good news for Republicans. The “Green New Deal” still manages to clock in at a 63% support. That’s likely because no one actually knows what it really entails and when you ask people if they want to help the environment, they tend to respond in the affirmative. Medicare for All gets 70% support, which is again misleading, as other polls show majority against when it’s revealed to them that their taxes will have to go up. NPR chose not to include that fact for obvious reasons. Still, it’s disconcerting that so many American voters can be bought off by offering them “free” stuff they think they won’t have to pay for. That won’t end well for the nation.

Background checks for guns also comes in at 89% support, which isn’t surprising since we already have those so problem solved I guess.

What this poll does show is that several major Democrat policy platforms are deeply unpopular with the American people and it’s only been one debate. Does anyone doubt they won’t move even further to the left as the next dozen or so slap fights take place?

Noted Economics Expert Rep. Rashida Tlaib Calls for a $20 Minimum Wage

Rashida Tlaib Calls for a $20 Minimum Wage rashida tlaib Politics job losses Hours Cut Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Economically Illiterate dumb disaster democrats Congress Bernie Sanders AOC $20 Minimum Wage $15 Minimum Wage

Nothing has to make sense anymore when it comes to policy proposals from Democrats.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, recently exposed for being a crazy person at a Trump rally in 2016, spoke at a “One Fair Wage” event in Detroit, MI today. There, she called for a minimum wage hike, not to $15, which is already double what it is now, but $20 an hour.

Because losing 1.3 million jobs wouldn’t be enough I guess.

Excerpt via The Daily Caller.

“Big fights like this one, $15. When we started it, it should have been $15. Now I think it should be $20 … It should be $20 an hour. $18-20 an hour,” Tlaib said in a video posted by America Rising on Monday.

Tlaib and Michigan Democrat Debbie Dingell participated in an event called “Server for an Hour” to support the Raise the Wage Act that passed the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives Thursday.

That’s some serious wage inflation she’s wanting. By what logic should it be $20? Why not $50? Heck, $100 sounds nice.

Such artificial forces on the jobs market would, of course, end in disaster. Most businesses work on very thin margins. More than doubling the wage they have to pay for menial jobs would result in widespread layoffs, cutting of hours, and the further overworking of salaried employees. No matter how empathetic Democrats believe they are being, no amount of “feels” overrides economic realities.

We saw that with Bernie Sanders this week. When faced with the fact that he wasn’t paying his campaign staffers $15 an hour, he didn’t raise their pay. No, he cut their hours. We saw the same thing when Obamacare mandated employee health insurance for people working over 30 hours. Liberals can keep foisting these ridiculous rules on companies but all it’s going to do is hurt the economy and hurt the workers.

The harsh truth is that the minimum wage was never meant to be a living wage. It can not be a living wage without putting millions of people out of work entirely. Someone mopping floors is simply not worth $15-$20 an hour. The person taking orders at McDonalds is not valuable enough to be paid $15-$20 an hour. Labor is, and always has been a commodity. It’s worth is determined by its ability to produce economic benefits for employers. The government attempting to artificially set the worth of menial labor just accelerates the path to automation.

Sheer economic ignorance plagues much of the Democratic party at this point, but the most outspoken voices on that front continue to be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar. These are not serious people. They have no idea what it’s like to run a business, nor manage a payroll. Their proposed ideas would destroy jobs, put millions out of work, and depress the economy as businesses are forced to cut productivity or close altogether.

It should also be noted that Tlaib served tables at this event, basically slumming it so she can say she knows what it’s like to make minimum wage. If restaurants were forced to pay servers minimum wage, much less $20 an hour, it would destroy the restaurant industry. For those that could survive, near full automation would become the norm decades earlier than anticipated. The fact is that most waiters and waitresses make far more per hour on tips than they would getting paid minimum wage.

Tlaib and the Democrats in Congress who are pushing this doubling of the minimum wage are going to end up hurting a lot of people, causing a lot more poverty, and destroying a lot of businesses. But they’ll get to make the rounds on the cable networks talking about how much they care. In the end, isn’t that what really matters here?

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.

De-Crowned Trump-Supporting Beauty Queen Gets Grated Like Cheese on CNN’s ‘New Day’ (Video)

[Screenshot from CNN, https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8&v=OomqjBQozpU]

 

On Sunday, I covered Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu’s loss of the Miss World America crown over her comments about, in part, trying on a hijab. The beauty queen released a video response to the accusations of racism and Islamophobia, in which she took up the mantle of liberty and diversity of thought (here).

Due to the controversy, CNN’s New Day invited the immigrant (in the accurate sense of the word) to discuss. But when Kathy got on air, she was grilled by host Alisyn Camerota as if she’d taken the witness stand.

Kathy touted fact and freedom of speech:

“You shouldn’t just take tweets out of context. I think it’s super important to see the full context of the tweet, and the full conversation. Everything I posted was statistics and my opinions, and I think that, you know, we should be empowering women’s voices and not just stripping them of their title only because of their opinions.”

Alisyn read a past tweet about black-on-black crime, which went as follows:

“Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others.”

The host suggested to the beauty queen her comment possessed a “ring of racism,” and she tried to help Kathy woke up:

“Do you see how that could be seen as offensive? Why would you focus on blacks causing black deaths when the majority of white deaths are caused by white people? This is why people think that this has a ring of racism to it. You didn’t mention the white statistic.”



The shamed contestant attempted a defense:

“Again, this was in response to another person’s tweet talking about how cops kill black people.”

The former Miss World America had already informed Alisyn that her response was to the notion that “all cops are bad people” and that they “kill innocent black people.”

“And if you think statistics and facts are racist,” she said, “then I don’t know what to tell you.”

But Perry Maso– I mean, Alisyn, pushed:

“It’s just which ones you highlight, since, you know, you could have said the thing about white people.”

As for the Muslim headdress, the 20-year-old had once waxed philosophic on her campus’s “Hijab Awareness Day”:

Her tweet:

“There’s a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus. So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?”

Kathy to Alisyn:

“I think that it’s really rude, to Muslims too, to wear their sacred garment on someone who isn’t a Muslim themselves. I wouldn’t want to put a Catholic rosary on someone if they aren’t Catholic.”

The host hammered:

“But that’s not what you said. You said it wasn’t that you felt badly for them, that you weren’t Muslim. It’s that you said, ‘Are you just trying to get women used to be oppressed under Islam?’”

Geez Louise.

Kathy contended there’s Muslim oppression of women in other parts of the world”

“There are so many women in Muslim countries right now who are being stoned to death because they don’t want to wear a hijab due to their husband’s requirement to do so. I think we should be focusing on that.”

Bill Maher agrees.

But Alisyn Camerota likely doesn’t.

Not-yet-21 Kathy Zhu got grilled on live television, over — it seems — things she didn’t mean to imply. Check out the full interview above, and let us all know your reaction in the Comments section.

To be fair to the Collusion Narrative Network, Kathy shoulda seen it comin’. They weren’t poised to be a fan, from the outset — witness the horror:

Screen grab via WSB-TV.

There must be something in the water in Georgia these days.

There’s been the escalating she said-he said war between a Democratic stage legislator and a Cuban-American Democrat over heated words that were exchanged at a Publix grocery store express lane last Friday.

But there’s also another crazy story coming from Georgia involving a woman who hated a Cobb County man’s Trump 2020 display so much that she drove her SUV through a barbed wire fence to vandalize it at 1 in the morning last Monday.

WSB-TV reports:

[Property owner George] Bentley’s security cameras captured a car driving through the barbed wire fence and then knocking over a bright-colored cube around 1 a.m. Monday.

The video then shows a woman standing in front of the camera to spray-paint the Trump sign.

Bentley and his girlfriend, Dee Corson, discovered what happened when they woke up later in the day.

“That’s pretty strong for it to bother you something like this,” Corson said.

Unfortunately for the vandal, she couldn’t get her car back through the barbed wire fence:

They also made another discovery: a car left behind.

Video shows the woman struggled to get back through the fence, so she left the car there.

“If the car hadn’t been here with the tag on it, and we just had video of the person, it would have been really tough,” Bentley said.

The car led police to Azaria Moore, 20, who is charged with criminal trespass and failure to report a crash.

Moore didn’t talk on camera but told the news outlet that, if convicted, she might have to face up to five years in prison.

Watch the video report below, which includes a short clip of Moore driving through the field and spray-painting the sign:

You know what they say about karma, right?

As I mentioned this morning, the #resistance are all hyped up about Robert Mueller is testifying on Wednesday in front of the House Judiciary committee. An honest assessment says this is going to be a big dud, with Mueller not straying outside of the bounds of his report. To do otherwise would break Mueller’s own word about the report being the full measure of his testimony. Any pronouncements of criminality, collusion, or obstruction would also completely undermine the report.

Now, we may have confirmation that Mueller is indeed going to offer absolutely nothing new.

This is the right move.

The DOJ owns that report. Mueller has no right to go before Congress with a bunch of baseless insinuations and claims outside of the job he was contracted to do. This will of course lead to lots of gnashing of teeth, but that doesn’t matter. The Democrats were going to complain about a cover up anyway, just as they’ve been doing for months.

Even more obvious is that this is what Mueller himself wants. He doesn’t want to be grilled or answer a bunch of questions outside the scope of the report. The DOJ is giving him the cover he needs now to basically tell them “I can’t answer that” more times than you can count.

In the end, this is going nowhere. Polling shows most of the country have moved on. No one cares about this topic anymore except Democrats desperate to keep their base in a frenzy. Trump is here to stay until at least January of 2021. Mueller isn’t changing that.
