CA City Councilwoman Posts Anti-ICE Video Featuring a Defaced US Flag

On July 13, one day before rumored ICE “raids” were to take place, Simi Valley City Councilwoman Ruth Luevanos posted a video on her Facebook page advising the targets (who are people who have active orders of removal after a deportation hearing) to not comply with ICE. Since Sen. Kamala Harris, Gov. Gavin Newsom, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti all posted similar warnings (scripted in the same Dem comms shop, no doubt), she likely thought she was just keeping up with the cool kids.

But there was something very different about her video.

SB54 California Family Values Act is still the law in California according to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Posted by Simi Valley City Councilmember Ruth Luevanos on Saturday, July 13, 2019

Like many of her fellow Democrats, she used “concentration camp” rhetoric, saying:

“I have news from our southern border, and right now the United States is in the business of running concentration camps…they’re asking them to drink out of toilets.”

She has “news from our southern border”? Councilwoman Luevanos’ city is about a three-hour drive from the southern border. She makes it sound as if she has breaking news sent to her by a confidential source, when she can drive down there at any time to see what is happening.

Also like her fellow Democrats, she knowingly spread false information about the targets of the raid:

ICE is planning nationwide raids throughout our communities…not just targeting criminals…targeting all families. They’ve already said they’re going to have collateral deportations. This means tearing families apart, families that have worked here and lived here for generations, paid their taxes, followed, all the laws, and are simply seeking a legal recourse that they haven’t had for years in our immigration system.

The Department of Homeland Security has been clear that the targets of these “raids” are illegal immigrants who have been through the judicial process and on whom there is an active Order of Removal. After an Order of Removal is issued, the standard procedure is for ICE to send the subject a “Bag and Baggage” letter ordering them to “report to a local ICE facility at a particular time and date” with their legal documents and a small piece of luggage to be deported.

If the subject ignores that letter, “ICE will refer your file to the fugitive unit, which tracks down and arrests those noncitizens who fail to report for removal. ICE agents could arrest you at your home, work, or school at anytime. They often come in the middle of the night, when you are expected to be asleep at your home.”

So, no, the people targeted in these raids are not people who have been here for generations as a family unit and working and paying taxes. According to an ICE press release about the recent surge in enforcement in San Diego:

“Of those arrested during this operation, 85 percent had prior criminal convictions and/or prior criminal charges. Convictions for those arrested included drugs, weapons offenses, hit-and-run, driving under the influence, theft, domestic violence, evading law enforcement and fraud criminal offenses.”

Obviously, Luevanos is either misinformed or deliberately misleading in her video.

Like other Democrat office holders, Luevanos’ video emphasized her “official” capacity.

What was very different about her video is the flag she’s sitting in front of while delivering her message of lawlessness.

Luevanos’ video showed her sitting in front of a United States flag that had been defaced. Instead of red and white stripes, the stripes on Luevanos’ flag were the stripes of a traditional Mexican serape (blanket). She’s also sitting in front of posters saying, “Stop tearing families apart,” “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention,” and “The young people will win.” It’s not clear whether this video was shot in her city council office or some sort of home office.

Judging by the reaction on the many Facebook groups dedicated to Simi Valley politics and community news, Luevanos’ video is extremely controversial. Residents slammed both the content and the “flag” behind Luevanos. By Monday morning a “Recall Ruth Luevanos” Facebook page had been set up, with its organizers urging residents to attend the next City Council meeting to make their feelings known.

Given that Luevanos’ introduction to local politics was her dramatic testimony at a City Council meeting in early 2018 regarding sanctuary state policies, it seems that she’s come full circle.

Teachers Call for Superintendent’s Removal After Terrifying Active Shooter Drill

A school superintendent in California thought that active shooter drills were getting a little too routine, so he decided to mix things up. To, as he told CBS47 “make sure this was realistic.” The problem? He didn’t alert teachers that there would be a drill, leaving them and students to believe their lives were in danger. Now, teachers are seeking his removal.

Juan Sandoval, the superintendent, had a janitor wear a mask, hold a fake gun, and run around the campus of Raisin City Elementary School on June 3 as though he were an active shooter. Teachers and students were understandably terrified.

Kim Copper, who has been a teacher for 22 years told CBS47 “I though this might not really be a drill, and what am I going to do.” She continued “I love these students and I don’t know what I can do. I thought wow, am I going to go down like this?” She gathered her students together, and the supposed gunman pounded on the door and tried to open it. “I had one boy, he was trying to be very quiet about it but he was sobbing. You can imagine I was upset and I’m a 48 year old adult. But in the back of my mind I didn’t know that it’s a drill. I think my goodness this can really be happening.”

Teacher Danny Nason had a similar experience with his third grade class. He got his students hidden behind a cupboard and, when the “shooter” tried to enter the classroom, stood near the door with a fire extinguisher. He believed he might have to use it to save his students’ lives. He told The Fresno Bee, “When the door began to open I swung the fire extinguisher at whoever was coming in,” but was able to stop himself from hitting the janitor when he recognized him. Then, he asked “What is wrong with you people?” Sandoval later told Nason that he was to blame for the gunman entering his classroom, as one of his special needs students was crying too loudly.

After the drill, the school held an assembly. Nason saw those who were involved in carrying out the drill. He told The Fresno Bee “They were all laughing,” he said. “They thought the entire situation was hilarious. While they were celebrating, my students were extremely upset. Some were crying, others were asking me to call their mothers because they had either a stomachache, headache, or wanted to go home.”

Parents, of course, were livid upon finding out. Jessica Garza, whose daughter attends Raisin City Elementary told The Fresno Bee  “She said all her classmates were either crying or praying they wouldn’t die,” Garza said. “That disturbed me.” Nason is disturbed as well. “They terrorized the kids,” he said. “What it did to me. I had to fight for 30 kids. I hope that they can understand that what they did to the students was wrong and that they never do this again.”

CBS47 asked Sandoval if he thinks it was wrong to create such a realistic situation and not alert staff, parents, or students. “No, I don’t think it was wrong,” he told them. The journalist then asked him “The drill was just so realistic, that many are afraid anything could have happened. Someone could have had a heart attack? Someone could have driven by and pulled out a gun to help the students? They were so scared.” Sandoval responded “that’s a good thing.”

The Raisin City School board sent out a statement saying that “The district will be updating it’s active shooter training procedures and coordinating with law enforcement to improve our training effort.” For the teachers, that’s not enough.

At a board meeting on Tuesday, teachers will ask for Sandoval to be removed from his position, The Fresno Bee reports. Copper, who is also the Union President, said “This is just the latest and most horrendous example of his poor decision-making and judgment and we are calling on him to step down or for the board to remove him.”

Schools need to rethink their approach to active shooter drills in general. This was extreme, but most of them needlessly terrify children for something that will almost certainly never happen. Let’s keep in mind that you’re far more likely to be struck by lightning than to be involved in a mass shooting (and those odds are reduced when you narrow it down to a shooting in a specific location, like in a school), but I have never heard of a school terrifying children with lightning drills like they do when it comes to active shooters.

Sandoval has go to, but it’s time to rethink the entire idea while we’re at it.

McConnell to the Media: Your Race Card Is Maxed Out

Unless you’ve been in a coma for the past three days you know the story.

On Sunday, President Trump took to Twitter to tell The Squad that if they didn’t like it here in America (and it is blatantly obvious that at least three of them loathe America and its way of life), then perhaps they should decamp to the Third World sh** hole of their choice.

Let’s pause for a musical interlude (h/t to Archer01 for the reminder) and recall that telling people to get the hell out of here if they don’t like it is not something that is particularly new to American politics.

Immediately, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the NeverTrumpers and assorted weak and fearful Republicans were finding the tweets racist (I’m not really sure which race they are referring to, you only have five). There are things you can criticize the tweets for, but, in my view, it isn’t racist to tell someone that if you don’t like it here, find an place more amenable to your aesthetic. Perhaps someplace with no water and flyblown corpses festooning the landscape.

Just a short while ago, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was button-holed by some media types and they asked him about the brouhaha:

https://twitter.com/politico/status/1151200604003246080

This reminds me of the old Jon Stewart skit

We have gotten to a point where you can’t disagree or mock anyone on the left without being accused of some form of -ism or -phobia against which all right thinking people should unite. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the little Maduro fan girl, actually hinted that Nancy freakin Pelosi was racist for saying she wasn’t all that. The good thing about that is that most America seems to have wised up to the game and recognize that calling someone racist (or sexist or homophobic or whatever) is simply a cheap attempt to shut down a conversation that the listener doesn’t want to take place.

There are very real questions about the degree to which Tlaib and Omar and Ocasio-Cortez are actually loyal to this country and whether they will operate in this country’s best interests/ Pressley, it seems to me, is more of a garden variety racebaiter who doesn’t fit in all that well with the other three but who is tagging along for the press clippings. You may not like what Trump said but not liking it does not make it racist.

That Jeffrey Epstein Story Sure Died a Quick Death and the Reason Is Obvious

Westlake Legal Group jeffrey-epstein-mugshot-620x317 That Jeffrey Epstein Story Sure Died a Quick Death and the Reason Is Obvious sex trafficking Politics Pedophiles Newspapers Media Blackout media bias malpractice Little St. James journalism Jeffrey Epstein Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats CNN Bill Clinton

FILE – This July 27, 2006 arrest file photo made available by the Palm Beach, Fla., Sheriff’s Office shows Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein, a wealthy financier and convicted sex offender, has been arrested in New York on sex trafficking charges. Two law enforcement officials said Epstein was taken into federal custody Saturday, July 6, 2019, on charges involving sex-trafficking allegations that date to the 2000s. (AP Photo/Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, File)

Last week, news was exploding about the arrest and subsequent charging of Jeffrey Epstein, a serial pedophile and sexual abuser who had previously been let off via a sweetheart plea deal back in 2007.

Epstein’s news making ability wasn’t just about his crimes though. It was about who he was connected too, namely much of the rich and powerful in New York. The most serious contact appears to have been with Bill Clinton, who not only traveled many times with Epstein, but was also fingered on his “pedophile island” in the Caribbean by a victim.

As I wrote last week, Clinton is absolutely the most implicated major figure here and every investigative reporter that has any integrity left should be digging deep on this topic.

Every investigative journalist worth their salt should be diving deep into the Clinton and Epstein connection because it’s a flashing red light right now. Instead, we get side-stepping pieces like this one from Vanity Fair riffing about fairly irrelevant connections to Trump while ignoring the most disturbing revelations. Whether they are meaning to or not, the media are helping to cover for some really bad actors by refusing to shift their partisan rancor and follow the evidence.

That was wishful thinking though. On Friday, I tweeted this out with all the cynicism I could muster, opining that now that Sec. Acosta (the only figure with any connection to Trump) had resigned, the story would die a quick death.

Was I right? Absolutely.

The story has vanished. It’s like it never happened. We went from wall to wall coverage to radio silence, with only a few buried pieces on his finances seeing daylight. As long as Sec. Acosta was still around, the media had their hook to tie this all to Donald Trump, despite him having no serious relationship with Epstein and any possible malfeasance by prosecutors occurring over a decade before his presidency.

But when Acosta resigned at the end of the last week, that was it. The hook was gone. They couldn’t readily tie it to Trump anymore so they dropped it. This despite the fact that we know Bill Clinton lied about his interactions with Epstein in his press release on the matter.

Has any mainstream media outlet followed up on this? Anyone questioned Bill Clinton in person? Staked his house out? Stalked him in public to make him answer? Would any Republican ever be left alone over something as sensational and disturbing as the revelations about Clinton’s connections to Epstein? Of course not.

We’ve got a former President implicated in a sexual abuse scheme, on the flight logs with the underage girls, and visiting an island known for its sex trafficking…and no one outside of right wing media cares. CNN isn’t talking about, nor the major networks or newspapers. It doesn’t even appear any of those outlets are looking into it. It’s a total blackout.

What this shows is that the media never really cared about the women who were abused. It was always just another way to slap at Donald Trump. When that was no longer possible, they moved onto the next Trump outrage. It puts the moral vapidness of their profession on full display.

It’s Come To This: Biden Says He Might Challenge Trump To A Push-up Contest Because That’s The World We Live In Now

Joe Biden-Caricature by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Technically, apparently, he was kidding. But with Old Crazy Uncle Joe, who can really be sure?

Biden appeared on “Morning Joe” for a Tuesday interview with co-host Mika Brzezinski and said he would immediately retaliate if Trump started poking fun at his behavior [during the 2020 debate].

“I would say, come on Donald, come on, man. How many push-ups do you want to do here, pal? I mean jokingly,” Biden said.

“I’m used to bullies and so my strategy is, just to go out and remember that famous expression my grandpop used to use … they said to Harry Truman, give them hell Harry. He said no, I’m just going to tell them the truth. They’re going to think it’s hell,” Biden [told Brzeznski].

Who’s ready to see two old dudes engaged in feats of strength and endurance on the 2020 debate stage? With Biden a scrapper from Scranton and Trump a pugilist from Queens, this election could shape up to be something along the lines of “Gangs of New York.”

Bring it.

Latina ICE Officer Becomes Internet Sensation “#ICEBae,” Slaps Down Leftists Telling Her to Feel Ashamed

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-3-620x427 Latina ICE Officer Becomes Internet Sensation “#ICEBae,” Slaps Down Leftists Telling Her to Feel Ashamed twitter Texas Politics Mike Pence Kiara Cervantes Internet immigration Ice Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception #ICEBae

Allow me to introduce you to “#ICEBae,” a Latina officer with the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. She recently became something of an overnight internet sensation after appearing in a photo alongside Mike Pence while he toured .

According to the New York Post, the officer’s real name is Kiara Cervantes and she hails from Texas. Within moments of appearing next to the VP as part of his security detail, the 26-year-old woman went viral, earning her the nickname “ICEBae” due to her beauty.

Due to her sudden rise in fame, Cervantes created a Twitter account in order to reach out to her new fandom. She told them in a tweet that she is grateful for her job and that she loves protecting her country.

“WOW I am in awe,” tweeted Cervantes. “Thank you all for the support! My job is so hectic at this moment but I am grateful. I love protecting my country!

She also made mention that it was an “honor” to provide security for Pence.

She later made a video confirming that the account was hers, which has been shared around the internet.

Of course, the hard-left parts of Twitter couldn’t stand the fact that an ICE officer would get positive press, much less a Latina one. They struck back with all the force and fury of children throwing a temper tantrum according to the NYP:

“This country is a mess, we are praising and trending #IceBae when she is literally a guard at a CONCENTRATION CAMP, guarding CHILDREN IN CAGES, RIPPING FAMILIES APART AT THE BORDER,” seethed one Twitter user. “You’re all sick, honestly.”

Another person said, “#IceBae is actively aiding in the internment of men, women, and children without trial or even so much as humane living conditions. She, along with every other officer going along with this is a traitor to the very ideas of justice and freedom.”

At one point, an internet leftist said that she should feel shame for being a Hispanic ICE officer and that her parents should disown her, adding that she’s “literal scum.” Cervantes defended herself in a now deleted tweet.

“I think that’s really rude and naive of you to say,” responded Cervantes. “You have no idea who my parents are and no idea what goes into my job on a daily basis… before speaking on something you know nothing about…. DONT. Regardless I’m blessed and thankful for the career I have.”

Sadly, the internet can’t take someone like Cervantes existing laying down.

Responding to Daily Caller alum Scott Greer who joked that she worked at a “concentration camp,” Cervantes did give us some insight as to what people were seeing in the photo.

“I can’t agree with concentration camps. But… this station in particular isn’t meant to be a holding facility hence the overpopulation of aliens. We are doing our best but some people won’t ever understand. They don’t know the daily of what my job consists of,” she tweeted.

All things considered, Cervantes seems to be a pretty level headed individual despite the aesthetic cause of her fame. She’s actually a registered Democrat according to the NYP, though she hasn’t voted since 2014.

Let’s hope Cervantes’s 15 minutes of fame don’t result in the left terrorizing her over being an ICE agent. There’s a lot of that going around lately.

AOC Tries to Maker Her Dismal Poll Numbers Out to Be An Illusion of Trump’s

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., listens during a House Financial Services Committee hearing with leaders of major banks, Wednesday, April 10, 2019, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)

Despite the media’s fawning over Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she falls more into the “infamy” column than the “fame” column. Between killing jobs for New Yorkers and failing to denounce a terrorist who used language she uses as justification for his attack, AOC isn’t exactly a voter’s favorite choice.

This fact was revealed by an Axios poll that showed the New York democratic socialist was recognized by 74 percent of voters in the poll, but those voters only had a 22 percent favorable view of her.

It’s even worse for Rep. Ilhan Omar, who was recognized by 53 percent of the voters; but came in at a dismal 9% approval. As it turns out, taking a soft view of the people who murdered thousands of innocents in a terrorist attack isn’t good for favorability.

As the media continues to rage on about Trump’s “racist tweets,” Trump took to Twitter to defend himself and pointed out that the Democrat’s condemnation of his remarks via a resolution is “con game.” He said that he truly believes the “congresswomen” hate the United States and then pointed out that they aren’t very popular, using the Axios numbers as a guide.

“Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap,” tweeted Trump. “This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country. Get a list of the HORRIBLE things they have said. Omar is polling at 8%, Cortez at 21%. Nancy Pelosi tried to push them away, but now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party. See you in 2020!”

As I covered on Monday, while Trump’s tweets about the Congresswomen had their issues, they weren’t at all racist. Regardless, the media narrative is that it is and that’s what the Democrats are running with.

But I digress.

AOC decided to put up a defense of herself by calling Trump, and by extension the poll, a complete fabrication by pointing at Trump and comparing him to an authoritarian who uses “mass distortion” to push a narrative.

“Authoritarians rely on mass distortion of reality to further concentrate their power, and they will take advantage of anyone and anything to meet that end,” tweeted AOC.

That’s rich coming from an authoritarian who relies on mass distortions of reality to further concentrate her power.

This is the same AOC that told us that the world would fall into chaos in 12 years if we didn’t pass her dictator-esque legislation that would have lead the United States down into a socialist hell from which it would take decades to recover, if it ever did. This is also the same woman who posed in front of an empty parking lot in order to take pictures of herself looking sad in order to convince us that she was looking at migrant children being mistreated.

Distorting reality is what AOC does best. She even cooks up realities about herself through cringe-worthy videos where she’s a hero to future generations, and releases weird propaganda looking illustrations that make her look deep.

The truth is, AOC and her “#squad” are about as liked by voters as Yoko Ono is to Beatles fans. She’s a habitual liar, apologetically ridiculous, and comes off more as a spoiled child than a professional lawmaker.

This isn’t Trump’s illusion, this is a very real Ocasio-Cortez creation.

Proof of the Dems Approving Terrorism? Ayanna Pressley Blatantly Refuses to Condemn Antifa Firebomb Attack

Westlake Legal Group tlaib-omar-aoc-pressley-620x317 Proof of the Dems Approving Terrorism? Ayanna Pressley Blatantly Refuses to Condemn Antifa Firebomb Attack Liberal Elitism Front Page Stories Front Page freshman squad Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress Ayanna Pressley AOC antifa Abuse of Power

The party that loves to cast blame and lecture about promoting violence has a real problem on its hands now.

Antifa has made itself a rather despicable group in just the past month alone, to say nothing of the years spent being an unhinged group of aggressive dolts. Any proper thinking person has seen this group for what it is — a gang of radicals who try to justify their violence and vandalism in the name of correcting supposed social ills.

However this outfit has been able to flourish in the country because as it employs fascistic behavior it couches itself as battling fascism, and the media has been providing cover. The lack of objective reporting, and just as often the supportive commentary from the press, has seen this organization of thugs prosper, when they should have been exposed and hectored away.

Now it appears the Democrat party has embraced Antifa as well. Last week we all saw the story of the Antifa member who was armed and throwing firebombs at an ICE facility in Tacoma. The muted response to this in the press is revealing; their inability to report on the story tells the story. Think of another instance when guns and terrorist acts would NOT have the media frothing about everything from our violent political culture, to gun control. But in the Tacoma case, the press is largely quiet, and some have even called the attacker a “martyr”.

This is the case with the Democrats as well. We have been shown video of Ayanna Pressley, fresh off of her appearance at the hilariously inept anti-Trump Press conference yesterday. (This would be where Pressley called for the Democrats to not take the bait from the President, and the AOC, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib each stepped up and promptly took his bait in their outlandish comments.) Pressly was approached by a member of The Rebel News team, and asked to comment on the Antifa firebombing.

So much is in play here. First off, the complaint about being in her personal space is a rather ironic bit off complaining. Think the fiasco we witnessed during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings when Senate members were routinely hounded, and even chased into elevators by activists, who were roundly praised for their actions. Do something of a similar confrontational manner with a Democrat member, however, and there is a personal space violation.

But the point here in this video display is the abject refusal by Pressly to respond. She steadfastly refuses to condemn the violent actions. Consider the implication here. There is an individual from an established violent group, who intended to storm a government facility with weapons and violent intent, and here is a Democrat member of Congress refusing to condemn these actions. A sitting member of Congress refusing to condemn an attempted act of terrorism on a government facility is astounding to consider, let alone to witness.

Think of how often in the past two years we have seen Democrats coming forward to declare words which are supposedly promoting violence. Everything from innocuous comments to quoting Democrats verbatim are said to be violent rhetoric. What then do we say when a congresswoman refuses to step away from a violent attack? What is it called when they refuse to disavow a violent organization, and cannot see themselves to condemn an armed firebomb attack?

There is no chance either to attempt deflecting this, by saying she was not condoning it, and therefore you cannot say she supports it. The stock in trade with the Democrats and the media has long been that whenever a distaff member of the GOP says something controversial then party leaders are called on to condemn the words, or then it is declared that it is the platform of the entire party.

That means, according to their own established rules, that a Democrat in Congress refusing to condemn an act of violence they have effectively supported it. We are not even discussing controversial words here; this is an established act of terrorism on a government building.

And the Democrats are in support. This means that by extension Antifa is theirs to claim as well, and it is all thanks to the freshman class, The Squad that the party has been placing in front as the emblem of their party. This is all going so very wrong for the people who claim to have been swept into power during the past election.

Fraudster Shaun King Calls Antifa Firebomber a “Martyr” While Encouraging More Violence

This seems fine.

Shaun King, noted white guy, media personality, and self-styled #blacklivesmatter leader, praised the man who tried to firebomb an ICE facility as a “martyr.”

He deleted the tweets, but no worries, I’ve got the contents.

Willem Van Spronsen just became the first martyr attempting to liberate imprisoned refugees from a for-profit detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

His hero was John Brown -the white abolitionist who led the raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859.

I’m not sure what the facility being “for profit” matters. But hey, it’s a good buzz-phrase.

The people in the facility have been detained by ICE because they have lawful deportation orders against them. Comparing any aspect of this nut job, who was incited by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her cohorts, to John Brown is just ludicrous.

No one is being enslaved here and just like Holocaust comparisons, it’s incredibly insensitive and gross to make such comparisons. These are people who purposely chose to break the law and even then, most of them had the opportunity to choose self-deportation instead of remaining in custody.

King goes on to laud the domestic terrorist as a hero who’s now “arm in arm with John Brown,” because this kind of praising of nonsensical violence totally isn’t dangerous.

We are told that this is the final letter of Willem Van Spronsen – who was shot and killed by law enforcement as he attempted an attack on a for-profit refugee detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

It’s a beautiful, painful, devastating letter.

He wasn’t crazy -inaction is. pic.twitter.com/YMO1vhXCHn

So not acting is crazy? Then why is King not acting, instead choosing to hide behind Twitter? Is he a coward? Does he not really oppose Nazis? Inquiring minds and all that.

This is where Willem was murdered this weekend.

His actions will be called terrorism and people will call him crazy, but neither are true. His mind was very clear.

He is now “arm in arm with John Brown.”

These camps must be shut down. pic.twitter.com/wzQPEYC2j9

His actions are being called terrorism because they were. Firebombing a government facility to push a political narrative is the definition of terrorism.

But leave it to a man who’s such a fraudster that he’s been dubbed “Talcolm X” to make ridiculous tweets like this, appropriating slavery in the process and basically begging for more people to get killed.

Will any of the outlets he works for condemn him? Nah, of course not. Will the media call him out? Of course not. He’s not a Republican after all.

Trump’s Main Competitor Launched a Major Platform Yesterday and Not a Soul Noticed

While we’re all parsing out Trump’s tweet storm, analyzing every word to death and raging into the wind on one side or other the rest of the world has just kept turning.

The path to 2020 is unfolding and with dozens of Democrat presidential candidates it is more important than ever for each one of them to be able to grab as much of the media spotlight as possible. However, at this point only one candidate is polling with numbers high enough to be considered any type of threat to Trump – Joe Biden.

There are a few vital subjects that every Democrat candidate must officially approach in order to reach their base -the border and illegal immigration, race, and healthcare.

When Obama first jammed Obamacare down America’s throat some of us who have lived under socialized medicine understood that the only thing it would guarantee is that politicians would forever be running on “fixing” the “fix” for healthcare. As a born Canadian, I can attest to that. I’ve never experienced on Canadian election in my 40-plus years in which a politician hasn’t run on fixing the broken medical system, because government doesn’t fix things.

So naturally Joe Biden’s stance on healthcare was set to be a major wind in his sails media-wise. After all, this is the man who served under the very president who brought us the “Affordable” Healthcare Act. It would be a delicate launch considering the failure of the policy. Biden needs to be able to carefully straddle the line between being proudly connected to it and admitting it didn’t really do what it promised.

On Monday Biden finally released his long-awaited healthcare platform…to deafening silence.

While Biden released the details of Obamacare 2.0, the rest of the world was raging at – or defending – Trump. Nary a soul noticed Biden’s soulless rehash of a nearly dead piece of legislation.

You can read about Biden’s plan here but it’s hardly worth the time. The bullet point wrap up is:

  • lower healthcare costs
  • expand insurance to the uninsured or underinsured
  • take on Big Pharma
  • improve healthcare quality
  • offer a public health exchange

Basically everything Obamacare was supposed to have done and didn’t.

It could have been worth at least a tiny boost in sycophant media circles…but then along came Trump. Suddenly, instead of talking about Joe Biden – the man who served as vice president to American’s first Black president – all they could talk about was Trump; and following that, the “Broad Squad” as they hogged the evening news cycle by stepping way out of their lane and into oncoming traffic.

Oh, to hear the conversations between Biden and Pelosi right now! Two of America’s most experienced politicians upstaged by a tweet-happy president and four freshman congresswomen.

It’s almost as if it were planned.
