As Democrats Fight a Civil War, Trump Strips Naked and Runs Onto the Battlefield

Westlake Legal Group D_c50OvXoAA8YC7-620x342 As Democrats Fight a Civil War, Trump Strips Naked and Runs Onto the Battlefield Trump supporters stupid Self-Destructive ridiculous republicans rashida tlaib Politics Nancy Pelosi Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story dumb donald trump democrats civil war Ayanna Pressley Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

But why though?

The Democrats are currently embroiled in a civil war so damaging that you have members calling each other racist and threatening to primary one another. For the first time since their election, the self-described “squad” of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her minions are on their heels, not sure how to react to the fire they are taking. Even the liberal media are infighting about which side to take as the volleys are launched.

Meanwhile, the economy is booming and President Trump is enjoying one of the more positive stretches of his tenure.

Well, he was at least. For some reason, he though it would be a good idea to wake up this morning and tweet this.

This is so self-destructive that it makes me want to beat my head against a wall.

Of the “Congresswomen” he could possibly be addressing here (which are undoubtedly Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley), three of them were born in America. They don’t have countries to go back to. One isn’t even a first generation American. She’s just…black.

Sure, I could parse this out and torture it, asserting that Trump is really only talking about Ilhan Omar despite the entire thing being in the plural tense and the aforementioned four all being in the news for the very thing he’s complaining about. I’m not going to do that though because I’d be lying to myself. This wasn’t thought out or planned. It wasn’t nuanced. It was Trump jumping on Twitter, not thinking about what he was saying, and pushing the publish button on the tweet.

All Trump had to do was stop and reflect for a moment. He’s got people all around him who could have pointed out “hey, this is going to cause a lot of blow back on you and your supporters at the worst possible time.” Another set of eyes and a simple tweak to the wording could have fixed it, but he refuses to take those precautions. Even now, he could issue a follow up clarification that would at least help provide some semblance cover for his supporters. He hasn’t done so.

If I could ask the President one question, it’d be this. Why make it so difficult for those who are trying to get you re-elected?

Democrats are collapsing in on themselves. All he has to do was sit back and not distract them. Instead he rips his shirt off and runs out on the battlefield screaming to be shot at. I know, 3-D chess and all that, but this just makes no sense.

And that’s exactly what is happening. Pelosi has now been given the perfect situation to bring peace to her civil war while redirecting all the fire on Republicans and she’s taking advantage of it.

We’ve got literal socialists running for President. People that want to do away with all immigration enforcement, raise taxes, and outlaw private health insurance. In other words, the stakes for 2020 are incredibly high.

All Trump has to do is play to his strengths, i.e. the economy and immigration, and he wins. But he just can’t stop stepping on his own feet. When your enemies are blasting each other, you don’t step in between them and beg to be shot in head. Yet, that’s exactly what Trump did here.

Instead of another week of AOC and Pelosi bad mouthing each other, we get a return to a unified Democrat front and multiple news cycles calling Republicans racists.

If Trump loses in 2020, it won’t be Paul Ryan’s fault, the Republican party’s fault, or the media’s fault. It’ll be a defeat that was wholly self-inflicted because he refused to practice any semblance of self-control when it comes to his personality. No one with an economy this good should be trailing Joe Biden by ten points or languishing with an approval rating in the mid-40s. Trump is though, not because of his policies, but because he’s constantly stepping on landmines when all he has to do is stay out of the minefield.

His only possible saving grace is that Democrats are absolutely crazy and will continue to push further leftward as the election season continues. For me personally, I’d prefer not to play a high stakes game of chicken with the country’s future. In the end, this isn’t about Trump. Like all politicians, he’s just a means to an end. Republicans need to be victorious in 2020 and not handing the Democrats a bucket of water after they set themselves ablaze would be prudent.

Incredible: Man Saves His Children From a Carjacker, But the Shocking Ending is Harrowing

Wow. This is an incredible story.

According to cops (and WPVI), here’s what happened…

A 25-year-old man was working at a pizza delivery joint in Philadelphia Thursday when his same-aged girlfriend — and mother of his two kids — came in around 9 p.m.

She’d left her vehicle running with her three youngsters — a 7-month-old, an 18-month-old, and a 5-year-old (from a prior relationship) inside.

While the two spoke in the restaurant, a man carjacked the full-of-kids Hyundai.

The pair chased after the car, which got stuck in nearby traffic.

As per Scott Small, of the Philadelphia Police Department:

“They were able to pull this car thief out of the vehicle.”

The 54-year-old assailant subsequently took off on foot, but the boyfriend caught him and a fight ensued.

Back to Scott:

“Then other males from the neighbourhood intervened and began punching and kicking the male who took the vehicle.”

They beat the guy severely.

He was taken to a hospital with extreme damage to the head and face. At 10:05, he was pronounced dead.

The three children were unharmed and spent the night with relatives.

The tykes’ mom and dad were said to be cooperating with detectives.

It’s yet to be determined whether charges will be brought against the father.

What an intense and insane and terrible thing. It no doubt conjures strong convictions.

Thank God the children were unharmed and the crime was stopped. And kudos to a dad for doing whatever it took.

But as for the ending, what do you think? What feelings do you take away? Are you struck by thoughts of justice or of reckless, animalistic violence?

I look forward to hearing from you in the Comments section.

Actress Alyssa Milano Compares Mike Pence to Heinrich Himmler, Spotlighting a Growing & Dangerous American Ignorance

[Screenshot cropped from Twitter, https://twitter.com/Alyssa_Milano/status/1150123543515955201]

 

What do you do when you have no concept of history or the high stakes of true evil? For some, you essentially deny the real terror of the Holocaust by comparing present-day American political figures to Hitler.

Actress-turned-ill-informed-tweeter Alyssa Milano (here) followed suit Saturday with a breathtaking post.

Her assertion? That Vice President Mike Pence’s Friday visit to a detention center at the border was tantamount to evil Nazi Heinrich Himmler surveying a WWII POW camp.

This, if I may say so, is about as inexcusably idiotic as anything a person could suggest:

An estimated 6,000,000 innocents died in the Holocaust. Men, women, and children were rounded up because of their bloodline and executed. Among other means, they were placed in gas chambers, cooked in ovens, shot, and used for shockingly cruel medical experimentation.

Border detention centers are placement centers for people breaking the law, knowing that the detention centers are there for people who break the law.

But to some people who — for an unknown reason — can’t process the notion that (not so) long ago, Adolf Hitler, Himmler, and others systematically set out to murder millions…

I can’t even finish that sentence. This entire trend is just too horrible to properly address.

Moral equivalence and the dumbing-down of a nation:

Uh, no. It’s not.

Not everyone responded with zero comprehension:

Here’s what Mike had to say, following his trip:

America has a problem at the border, and a problem with the border. Thus far, Washington hasn’t been willing to fix things.

I haven’t been to the detention centers, and I have no idea what issues there are in great need of attention.

But I do know the comparison of Trump or whichever contemporary U.S. official to Hitler warrants denouncement.

I’m unfazed by whatever someone may think about issues of government — we can all cheer and boo, and at the end of the day, to a fair degree, it’s only politics. But honestly, what Alyssa has shared here is, in my view, shameful.

Ignorance is a contagion. And spreading the notion that what happened in the past wasn’t so ghastly by suggesting what’s happening now is just as so…is a very dangerous thing.

I’ll close here with a statement from the United States Holocaust Museum in response to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s likening of border centers to Nazi concentration camps (here, here, and here):

“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary. That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now.”

For more cold water to the face, witness the real horror of innocents in ovens via this link, which tells of the deaths of 1.32 million in only three months during 1942.

The RedState Box Office Report – Counter Programming Counted Out

Westlake Legal Group Crawl-620x287 The RedState Box Office Report – Counter Programming Counted Out Popular Culture Movies Hollywood Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment Box Offie Report box office report

 

It’s hard out there for the little guys.

It has been a tough summer for Hollywood with good and bad results on any given week. Basically if you are not one of the big guns then finding business in theaters is some tough sledding. Even this weekend’s lull before the big time release of “The Lion King” was not too fruitful. There also is little room, as the major releases are dominating the screens. “Spider-Man” sports the second highest release (4,634 screens) and “Toy Story 4” has the third highest — combined these two titles are showing on nearly 8,850 screens.

This week was a slight break between major releases so other studios attempted to get smaller-scale films noticed, trying to get attention by running between the legs of the giants. It did not work out that way and the established titles enjoyed decent returns. So here are what audiences chose to get out of the heat.

 

1. SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME – $45.3 Million
The 4th of July champ continued to rule. While it officially drops just over -50% that is a bit of a stilted number, as the film debuted on a Tuesday and that skews the conventional week-over-week measure. The latest comic book hero pic has been a smash, earning $275 million already, and tack on an additional $400 million in overseas returns. It is looking like Sony’s decision to partner with Marvel is paying off well.

2. TOY STORY 4 – $20.66m
Those days of some speculating this third sequel had a soft opening are rather humorous now. This return takes the film on the edge of $350 million and a worldwide total in the $700 million range. It is drawing better than “TS3” and has held nicely against a serious comic book film. The biggest challenge for the Disney film will be next week’s release of a Disney film.

3. CRAWL – $12.0m
There were tepid expectations for this horror thriller from Paramount. The hope is there would be some interest in the lag week, but this came in slightly below anticipated numbers despite a slight show of strength on Saturday. We covered the details on this one on our “Disasters In The Making” podcast this week, as weather-based creature film, where a massive hurricane hits Florida and rampaging alligators trap a family in their home. The accuracy is low and the reliance on CGI is high. This will have to lurch its way to about the $50 level to see a profit, which seems a longer shot than the family’s survival.

4. STUBER – $8.04m
A comedy action farce with Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani, this one suffers from a few maladies. It is an already tough market for adult comedies, and this was produced by 20th Century Fox, before the Disney takeover. As a result, it was drifting in the takeover, with Disney not really backing it and letting the remaining Fox ad team handle the promotions. Looking as if this will be fading very quickly from screens.

5. YESTERDAY – $6.1m
Becoming quite the quiet success story. Each week it is adding screens as the adult audience is finding this to be an alternative for their choosing. Nearly hitting the $50 million level, which few had anticipated for this small feature.

6. ALADDIN – $5.7m
Still churning out the returns with low percentage drops per week. This time seeing a dip of only -24%, but likely to feel the arrival of the next live-action remake coming next week.

7. ANNABELLE 3 – $5.5m
The dearth of any true horror hits has meant that the audience has spread around modest amounts to those that have arrived. This return is low for its series but decent for the summer releases.

8. MIDSOMMAR – $3.5m
An acclaimed art-house horror offering it has not garnered the same attention as the conventional choices. After two weekends it has yet to even hit $20 million in total.

9. THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2 – $3.1m
A surprisingly lower performance than its predecessor, it still has not inched its way over the $150 million plateau.

10. MEN IN BLACK INTERNATIONAL – $2.21m
A complete flameout here in the states at just $75 million in total it has drawn more than twice that in foreign sales. It remains to be seen if ultimately it manages to break even for Sony.

Armed Man Hurls Molotov Cocktails at ICE Facility, Draws Expected Response

An man armed with a rifle and incendiary devices most would describe as molotov cocktails attacked an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington yesterday.

The report is from the Seattle Times.

Police said Van Spronsen tossed lit objects at vehicles and buildings, causing one car fire, and unsuccessfully tried to ignite a propane tank.

Officers were called by an ICE employee who saw the rifle. Soon after they arrived, officers reported “shots fired,” said Tacoma police spokeswoman Loretta Cool, although it is unclear who fired first or if Van Spronsen fired at all. The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office classified his death as a homicide.

Willem Van Spronsen has been part of the protest scene at the facility for a while. Just last year he was criminally charged after attempting to choke a police officer while also carrying a knife.

Back on the street, his rage apparently hadn’t quelled and he went too far this time. Police saw the rifle as well as the fact that he was throwing improvised explosives and ended the confrontation with deadly force.

I noticed above that the medical examiner classified Van Spronsen’s death as a homocide. I’ll assume that’s normal, but it’s still jarring considering the officers were obviously acting in self defense here.

This kind of thing is not going to stop as long as the media and Democrat party are stoking the flames every single day. When you call ICE Nazis and claim they are torturing children, what kind of response should we expect? If someone really believes those things, why wouldn’t they take action? That’s the danger of all the misinformation that’s been spread around.

It’s ironic given that Republicans were accused of incitement simply for accurately quoting Ilhan Omar a few months back, something that clearly wasn’t in fact incitement, but the left and their media allies are completely mum about possible incitement in this case. Would they stay quiet if this were an abortion mill being attacked? Or would they try to tie it to the pro-life movement? We all know the answer to that and it’s a testament to their incredible hypocrisy.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her allies in Congress that are making up things and lying about the situation at these facilities, all while holding funding hostage, need to be called to account here. They are whipping up resentment and violence that’s going to lead to more people getting killed.

The Pale Blue Dot

Source: NASA/JPL-Caltech February 14, 1990
Earth, described by scientist Carl Sagan as a “Pale Blue Dot,” as seen by Voyager 1 from a distance of more than 4 billion miles.

Happy Sunday! I hope this offering pleases you.

The Pale Blue Dot

Each of us goes about our life engrossed in the everyday cacophony that represents being alive in modern society. We worry over meeting the bills, what the city council might decide on a certain zoning issue, or who the President will be in 2020. We revel in our own perceived importance as we ascend the corporate, military or political ladder. Sometimes, it behooves us to consider a larger perspective.

Here is one such perspective. On September 5, 1977, NASA launched Voyager 1, a deep space probe designed to study the outer Solar System. This device performed far better than expected. As I write this, the probe is over 13.6 Billion miles from Earth, the farthest of any devices ever launched by man…and is still responding to commands.

By 1990, Voyager 1 had completed its primary mission and was heading out of the Solar System. However, it was to get one final and most significant mission. Astronomer Carl Sagan prevailed upon NASA to have the spacecraft take a “family portrait” of the planets in the solar system, including Earth. The pictures were taken on Valentine’s Day, 1990 from a distance of 6 billion miles from Earth. The one showing Earth, is the subject of a book by Sagan. You can’t see that picture and read his words, then logically conclude that this all “just happened” on its own.

We succeeded in taking that picture [from deep space], and, if you look at it, you see a dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives.

The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.

Carl Sagan-1994

As we enjoy this Sunday, our day of rest and devotion, let us all consider our place in the Universe. Yes, we can each strive to be the best Teacher, Businessman or Soldier. We can aspire to achieve high political office or become a sports superstar. But in the end we still live on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

Happy Sunday!

Netroots Nation, Headlined by Elizabeth Warren, Demonstrates a Do-It-Yourself Abortion On Stage

Netroots Nation is a gathering of crazies that happens each year where no idea is too liberal and no position is too insane.

Don’t kid yourself though, this is a mainstream Democrat conference that hosts the biggest names in the party each summer. The media treat it as mainstream as well, glowingly reporting on it in a way they never do regarding CPAC. This year Elizabeth Warren, who has managed to climb into 2nd place in the 2020 Democrat primary, headlined the event.

Given this is a “progressive” gathering, it’s a given that every single person in attendance, from the stage to the people who clean the bathrooms, is rabidly pro-abortion.

Even still, this is shocking.

Yes, that’s a woman gleefully demonstrating on a watermelon how a woman can give herself a do-it-yourself abortion at home. In her hand is some kind of device designed to do the procedure. She proclaims it’s “easy” and “not surgery.” This is happening on stage, in front of the same crowd the major 2020 candidates are speaking in front of.

The celebration of abortion in this way is just unfathomably evil and sick. This is a fetish to these people. It was just a decade or so ago that Democrats were insisting abortion should “safe, legal, and rare.” Now, they perform abortions on watermelons on stage. It’d be unbelievable if we weren’t all witnesses it play out so vividly.

But perhaps it’s best they are being honest now. Like the slavers who would take pleasure in abusing their victims, pro-abortion extremists seem to actually enjoy the idea of women killing their babies for sport. The audience and panelists are actually clapping and laughing as this woman explains a horribly inhumane procedure that takes another human life. The fact that we’ve arrived at such a depraved state as a nation still baffles me.

Meanwhile, the same media that will lose their minds over Donald Trump getting two scoops of ice cream will not even acknowledge this disgusting display took place. Instead, they’ll continue to mainstream the conference and pretend this is all perfectly normal.

One day, future generations are going to look back on pro-abortionists with all the disgust we now look back on slavery with. I just pray that future generation makes its appearance sooner rather than later.

CNN Host Grills Pete Buttigieg Over His Abject Failure Among the Black Community

Westlake Legal Group david-axelrod-cnn-SCREENSHOT-620x350 CNN Host Grills Pete Buttigieg Over His Abject Failure Among the Black Community Uncategorized town hall The View South Bend Race Pete Buttigieg joy behar John Berman Indiana Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats David Axelrod Campaigns Allow Media Exception 2020

[Screenshot from Twitter, https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1149691002757758976?]

 

On Friday, a CNN talker noted the failings of a 2020 Democratic hopeful.

Strange day.

“Noted the failings,” that is, where it concerns his popularity among black voters.

Currently, Pete Buttigieg stinks.

The Axe Files’s David Axelrod made the observations during a discussion with news anchor John Berman.

John remarked that the small-town Indiana mayor “absolutely” has no chance to win the presidency without the support of black Americans.”

And he most certainly does not have it.

From Axelrod:

“Absolutely cannot. Absolutely cannot. African-Americans are about a quarter of the Democratic primary electorate. Once you clear those early states of Iowa and New Hampshire, they come into play. And in South Carolina, 60 percent of the voters will be African-American. So, as a practical matter, he has to solve this problem or he’s going to go back to South Bend. And that’s a problem.”

Right. It’s a problem, in part, because he isn’t taking care of business at home: Pete’s vacated his mayoral office to run for president, and some people haven’t appreciated it.

While he was out trying to change jobs in June, a white police officer shot a black man and chaos ensued.

Pete rushed back for damage control, but his town hall turned into YellFest 2019.

Even the gals at The View were unimpressed.

At the time, Joy Behar offered something which, to me, seemed perfectly sensible:

“[I] have this feeling that these guys who are running who are mayors and governors should keep doing their jobs — until they can fix — it’s almost like…when you’re the mayor or a governor, it’s almost like being the father or the mother of the family. And to leave South Bend now and run for president seems like an unfinished job.”

Former Obama Senior Advisor David appears to agree:

“South Bend itself is a bit of a problem for him because even though he has this very far-reaching Douglass Plan to try and fight systemic racism in this country, there are troubling issues back home about police staffing, which African-Americans dropped by half under his watch, and on city contracting, where African-American — where minority businesses have done rather poorly in sharing in the business of the city, even though 40 percent of the city is black and Hispanic. These are questions that I asked him.”

How’s he gonna lead the country if he can’t satisfactorily run South Bend?

Pete’s smaller problems are his bigger problems:

“And, you know, he had a series of issues. He fired a popular black police chief. It was because of an investigation. But, nonetheless, it was a controversial decision. He tore down 1,000 abandoned homes, many of them in poor minority communities, and that was meant to remove blight. But there was quite a bit of resistance because now there are these vacant lots in the community. So, you know, there are a lot of issues that he has to confront there.”

It’s not so often you see CNN downgrade a Democrat.

I wrote a while back that the lead-up to 2020 is gonna be interesting on the other side of the aisle. And so far, it hasn’t disappointed. CNN’s saying a Democratic can’t take care of business with the black citizenry, and AOC and Pelosi are in the ring among other infighting (here and here).

Keep out your popcorn; I think it’s gonna get weirder.

Tennessee Governor Honors KKK Grand Wizard & Slave Trader Nathan Bedford Forrest. Because He Has To?

In Tennessee, the Confederacy’s getting a weekend promotion.

Also being boosted: the KKK.

Governor Bill Lee signed a declaration officially making Saturday Nathan Bedford Forrest Day.

Who’s Nathan? Well, he was a Confederate general.

He was also a Grand Wizard — and I don’t mean of Oz.

As observed by Vice News:

He was the first Grand Wizard, and is believed to be responsible for Confederates massacring black Union troops. at Ft. Pillow during the Civil War, though his involvement has been disputed. He did eventually appear to renounce the Klan, and even called for its dissolution.

Well, that’s a positive change.

But what hasn’t been changed is the state law which requires the governor to annually proclaim as a holiday June 13th — slave trader Nathan’s birthday.

The gov has to do it? Yep.

From Vice:

Indeed, the 1921 law requires proclamations for six such special observances a year, including two others related to the Confederacy. Tennessee also declares Jan. 19 Robert E. Lee Day, a tribute to the commander of the Confederate army. June 3, the president of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis’s birthday, is declared Confederate Decorations Day. Until 1969, each of those days was a legal state holiday.

Gov. Bill told The Tennessean Thursday:

“I signed the bill because the law requires that I do that and I haven’t looked at changing that law.”

Black Democratic state Rep. Harold Love is sittin’ on go for the alteration, as he made clear to Memphis’s ABC 24:

“I think for many of us that know this has happened have oftentimes wondered when would a governor ask us to assist in helping change the law.”

Sen. Ted Cruz wouldn’t mind an undo, either. He called for action on Twitter:

“This is WRONG. Nathan Bedford Forrest was a Confederate general & a delegate to the 1868 Democratic Convention. He was also a slave trader & the 1st Grand Wizard of the KKK. Tennessee should not have an official day (tomorrow) honoring him. Change the law.”

It won’t come soon enough to make a 2019 difference. So for now, it’s NBF Day.

As for the future, if the government’s gonna slash the law, it might wanna hire some movers, too. In fact, it could start there: a bust of Nathan sits at the state Capitol.

Until something is done, visitors to Nashville’s hallowed building on top of a hill are off to see the Wizard.

Protestors Tear Down and Desecrate U.S. Flag, Raise Mexican Flag Over ICE Facility in Colorado

In this Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2017, photo released by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, foreign nationals are arrested during a targeted enforcement operation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) aimed at immigration fugitives, re-entrants and at-large criminal aliens in Los Angeles. Advocacy groups said that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers are rounding up people in large numbers around the country, with roundups in Southern California being especially heavy-handed, as part of stepped-up enforcement under President Donald Trump.

If there are any moderate Democrats left out there, they must be tearing their hair out. All their party had to do was not be absolutely crazy and they simply can’t do it.

Yesterday, protestors gathered outside an ICE facility in Aurora, CO to scream at officials who are simply trying to carry out lawful deportation orders. We’ve now reached the point in our country where one side of the aisle is literally saying that you can’t even deport criminals anymore.

The protestors decided it’d really win hearts and minds to storm the front of the facility, bring down the three flags present, and hoist a Mexican flag. They tried to burn the U.S. flag and spray painted “**** the cops” on the Thin Blue Line flag for good measure.

Per The Washington Times.

The incident saw activists take down three flags and replace them with the Mexican flag, a spray-painted “USA Thin Blue Line” flag, and a flag that said “F*** the Cops,” according to Aurora police.

Some activists also tried to burn the American flag, but officers declined to intervene, citing the need to protect the safety of officers and the “large majority who were acting peacefully” at the rally, which drew as many as 2,000.

What sense any of this makes is beyond any rational person’s comprehension. If they idea is that Latin American countries are so terrible that people must be allowed to come here illegally, why would you want to celebrate Mexico while desecrating the country’s flag you are fleeing to? If Mexico is so awesome that people feel the need to tear down the American flag and raise the Mexican flag, then illegal immigrants are welcome to apply for asylum there. It’d probably be less of a culture shock.

If you are wondering whether anyone was punished for the act of vandalism, nah. The Police Chief there didn’t do anything and actually blamed ICE for not putting up enough barriers.

“Beyond the removal, attempted destruction of the US flag, replacement of the flags, and some signs and poles being put on the main doors and windows, the protesters did not engage in behavior that warranted immediate intervention,” said Aurora Chief of Police Nick Metz in a Saturday statement.

Chief Metz also faulted ICE and the GEO Group, which runs the detention facility, for failing to heed the department’s advice to secure the bridge leading to the facility with water barrels to prevent pedestrians and vehicles from entering…

…At least one Democrat, Aurora city councilmember Nicole Johnston, said in a tweet that she attended the rally and thanked Aurora police for “keeping us safe and respecting our first amendment rights.”

Perhaps it wasn’t worth intervening at that moment, but were people arrested afterward? Of course not. Anarchy is the name of the game at these protests and the 1st amendment now apparently covers trespassing and destroying federal property. Nice to see an elected Democrat official showing up to be part of it all. That really sends the right message.

After the incident, some asked Democrats to condemn what happened.

Colorado’s rabidly liberal governor did finally chime in with this snarky nonsense.

Publicizing a picture of two dead migrants, who died trying to swim across a river outside of the United States, having absolutely nothing to do with the actions of Border Patrol, is just disgusting.

Furthermore, where are the cages in his other photos? Or are we now calling huge rooms cages for extra effect? These people have to be held somewhere for processing. There’s noway around that and it’s beyond tiring that some morons keep pretending CBP can snap their fingers and teleport kids to foster homes immediately. What exactly would Polis like CBP to do with unaccompanied minors (who make up the vast majority of detained children)? Would he like to give his address out and arrange them being dropped off on his doorstep? Of course not, because he’s a do-nothing, hypocritical politician who’s just grand-standing for political reasons.

The intellectual dishonesty surrounding the immigration debate has reached unbelievable levels. The same people who deny funding and call for the abolition of the agencies taking care of these people then turn around and complain about overcrowding and sub-par conditions. It’s the worst kind of politics and the only reason they are getting away with it is because the media are nearly 100% compliant and complicit.

In the end though, this is going to backfire. A sizable majority of voters do not want open borders, they do not blame the Border Patrol for being in a lose/lose situation, and they are against abuse of our asylum laws. The continued insanity coming from the left over this issue is going to drive more and more people to the Republican party and it’ll be well deserved.
