AOC Accuses ICE Agents of Purposely Killing Children Because She’s a Moron

I’m going to break one of my own rules. I normally refrain from name calling in headlines and try to not do it in the body of my articles unless it’s just unavoidable. I.E. calling people idiots, morons, etc.

Let’s call this an unavoidable situation. There is no more of an accurate way to describe this latest nonsense from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez than moronic.

There are so many questions.

First, I’ll note that Jessica Valenti’s link above doesn’t work. While I can’t be sure what it said, what I can guarantee is that her description of what happened is almost certainly not accurate. She’s a dishonest hack and routinely misrepresents matters to push her rabidly pro-abortion views.

Also of note is that at the time that AOC reacted to the tweet, the link was still not working, which means she had no actual context for what she was responding to.

Regardless, AOC is comparing ICE agents having an accidental death happen in their custody to abortion doctors who purposely choose to kill children.

In short, she’s accusing ICE agents of murdering kids.

This harkens back to an episode a few weeks ago when a Democrat Representative made this same argument, accusing DHS of making policy choices with the intention of killing kids. That was quickly swept under the rug and the media completely ignored it. We didn’t even get one fact-check.

Now, we have AOC equating ICE agents with abortionists, asserting they are making the same affirmative decision to end the lives of babies. That’s her words, not my interpretation. She says it’s the “same thing.”

This kind of language is disgustingly vile but not unexpected from someone with very little mental fortitude. It probably never even crossed her mind how illogical her comparison was.

No matter what one thinks of immigration policy as a whole, CBP and ICE are doing everything they can to treat people humanely given the impossible situation at hand. They are not purposely killing anyone and in the rare event someone dies in their custody, accusing them of doing it intentionally is just gross.

Legacy Time: Hillary Clinton Selfishly Uses College Commencement Speech to Talk Mueller and Bash Trump, Facebook

Westlake Legal Group HillaryClintonHunterCollege-620x337 Legacy Time: Hillary Clinton Selfishly Uses College Commencement Speech to Talk Mueller and Bash Trump, Facebook Politics North Carolina New York Mueller Investigation Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Education donald trump democrats Culture Allow Media Exception

Hillary Clinton speaks at the Hunter College graduation ceremony in NYC. 5/29/19. Screen grab via NBC News.

Students ready to put years of hard work behind them, celebrate their graduation, and get started on their respective career paths were treated to a blatantly political and self-centered commencement speech given by twice failed candidate for president Hillary Clinton on Wednesday.

The Associated Press reports:

Clinton’s bluntly political speech to members of the class of 2019 at Hunter College was delivered at Madison Square Garden hours after Mueller made his first public comments about his probe into election meddling.

Referencing Mueller’s remarks, Clinton said the allegation that Russians had attempted to sway U.S. voters “deserves the attention of every American,” and she condemned Trump for largely dismissing Mueller’s work as a witch hunt.

“What we’ve seen from the administration is a complete refusal to condemn a foreign power who attacked our democracy,” she said. “We’ve got to deal with what has been investigated and reported.”

[…]

“What do we do when people in positions of authority are not held accountable? When they defy requests from Congress? When they spread misinformation online?” the Democrat said, suggesting it was up to the graduates to find solutions to such problems.

Clinton also took a jab at Facebook:

“When Facebook refused to take down a fake video of Nancy Pelosi, it wasn’t even a close call,” Clinton told the graduates. “The video is sexist trash. And YouTube took it down but Facebook kept it up.”

The former presidential candidate then suggested that a message be sent to Facebook to show opposition to the tech giant’s decision, and she warned that the site would be “flooded” with “false and doctored videos” if nothing happens.

Her full speech can be viewed below:

Twitter users called Clinton out for using the speech to air her personal and political grievances instead of making it about the students:

Some Twitter users pointed out something I noticed, too: Some of the graduates sitting behind Clinton looked visibly bored and agitated:

As I’ve written before when she’s made similar remarks, it’s just really rich to see her of all people complaining about people in positions of authority not being held accountable, especially when you consider how Clinton herself managed to avoid indictment in 2016 in spite of all the evidence against her as it related to her email server scandal.

Clinton’s rationale for continuing to bang the Mueller drum is not just political, it’s personal – very personal. Her loss to Trump in 2016 had to be devastating to her. Very embarrassing, too, considering she was a “sure thing” if you listened to so-called political experts and polling gurus.

Some have called the investigation into Russian interference a “coup attempt” against Trump, but for Hillary, the investigation has been a way for her to soothe her bruised ego over the fact she was defeated. She’s convinced herself that without the interference she would have won the election.

The students at Hunter College deserved a speech that was centered around them, their accomplishments, and their futures, not a political bashfest with insinuations about what could have been for her in 2016. Clinton’s defenders will call this her greatest speech ever, but in reality this was not a good look for her. Not good a good look at all.

Rand Paul Attacks Mueller Over Handling of Trump Investigation, Then Sets His Sights On Amash

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) has some things to say about the way both Robert Mueller and Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) have treated President Donald Trump as of late, and he appeared on Fox Business on Thursday to air some grievances.

“The thing that shocks me is that someone like Mueller, who is supposed to be esteemed and has been around for decades, completely and fundamentally misunderstands our justice system,” said Paul while talking to Stuart Varney.

“The burden on the government is to prove that you’re guilty. Nobody proves that you’re innocent. You’re presumed to be innocent,” he continued. “So he’s out there, all over television, saying, “We never said, we never concluded the president was innocent.” Completely misunderstands our judicial system. You’re presumed to be innocent; they have to prove you’re guilty.”

“He was not charged. He was not indicted, so he is innocent,” he concluded.

Paul went on to say that it’s not right to assume someone is guilty because they never said they were innocent, and that innocence comes with the lack of a guilty verdict. According to Paul, Mueller “completely misunderstands that.”

Varney then turned the conversation toward impeachment, which Paul said would be a complete waste of time and that the people are sick and tired of hearing about it.

According to polls, he’s not wrong.

However, you can’t bring up the impeachment of Trump without bringing up the recent calls for it by Amash. Paul wondered aloud why a libertarian like Amash would want to support an investigation undertaken by the secret FISA court going after Americans:

So I don’t understand a libertarian who would take this investigation and say we should pursue it and impeach the president. It goes against everything libertarians are for. We don’t like too much power. We don’t like the secret FISA court going after Americans. Foreigners are one thing, but always we’ve been very concerned about the FISA court being used against Americans. So I’ve been talking with the president. I spoke with him last night about how do we try to prevent this from happening to the next president or to the Americans at large? I think the president is open to trying to figure out a way, either legislatively or through executive order, we can try to prevent this abuse of power from happening again.

History Much? In an Effort to Raise the Minimum Wage, AOC Speaks Again About Something She Doesn’t Know

In an Effort to Raise the Minimum Wage, AOC Speaks Again About Something She Doesn’t Know Uncategorized ROC restaurant opportunities centers united raise the wage act one fair wage act New York minimum wage Front Page Stories Featured Story encyclopedia virginia Economy democrats Business & Economy Bernie Sanders AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

[Screenshot from ROC, https://twitter.com/rocunited/status/1134572365671780355?]

 

Remember indentured servitude from History class?

If not, here’s somethin’ from Encyclopedia Virginia:

Indentured servants were men and women who signed a contract (also known as an indenture or a covenant) by which they agreed to work for a certain number of years in exchange for transportation to Virginia and, once they arrived, food, clothing, and shelter. Adults usually served for four to seven years and children sometimes for much longer, with most working in the colony’s tobacco fields. With a long history in England, indentured servitude became, during most of the seventeenth century, the primary means by which Virginia planters filled their nearly inexhaustible need for labor.

As per USHistory.org:

Upon completion of the contract, the servant would receive “freedom dues,” a pre-arranged termination bonus. This might include land, money, a gun, clothes or food.

And more, courtesy of PBS.org:

While the life of an indentured servant was harsh and restrictive, it wasn’t slavery. There were laws that protected some of their rights. But their life was not an easy one, and the punishments meted out to people who wronged were harsher than those for non-servants.

For those that survived the work and received their freedom package, many historians argue that they were better off than those new immigrants who came freely to the country. Their contract may have included at least 25 acres of land, a year’s worth of corn, arms, a cow and new clothes.

Got it? Now let’s go to History Professor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

At an event hosted by Restaurant Opportunities Centers United in order to promote a higher minimum wage via the One Fair Wage Act, AOC worked for a bit as bartender Friday.

The Act would, it should be noted, prohibit tipped workers from being paid less than the federal hourly minimum.

ROC reports table-waiters can currently be paid as low as $2.13/hr — an amount, it claims, that hasn’t changed since 1991.

Here are the New York freshman representative’s words to the crowd:

“Any job that pays $2.13 an hour is not a job. It’s indentured servitude.”

I believe it’s safe to assume she doesn’t own an Encyclopedia Virginia.

Sometimes, I genuinely wonder: Has she ever, at any time, made any statement of knowledge that was accurate?

I digress.

Or do I?

43 states allow for two minimum wages. The federal minimum is $7.25 per hour. Many states adhere to something higher. This week, Connecticut passed a bill to raise it to $15 by 2023.

Some Democrats want to make that the national low by 2024 via their Raise the Wage Act. It boasts more than 180 co-sponsors, including Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, and Chuck Schumer.

I could write here about the ramifications of raising the cost of business, the workings of supply and demand, etc. But you already know all of those. Unfortunately, (most of) you weren’t recently granted a seat in Congress.

But that’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for ya (here, here, here, and here). It follows my much-lamented, referenced contemporary political M.O.: Say things that sound powerful, whether they make any sense or not (here).

Politic on, AOC.

There’s a Huge Difference In What We Die From and What the Media Reports that We Die From

Westlake Legal Group terrorism-shutterstock-620x396 There’s a Huge Difference In What We Die From and What the Media Reports that We Die From Terrorism Television News Media homicide graph Google Front Page Stories Featured Story disease death cancer Allow Media Exception

The media sensationalizes, but that’s not necessarily uncommon knowledge. This is the age of click bait and breaking news that’s “breaking” for some reason. Fox News can’t switch to camera three without the breaking news animation playing and reading headlines on websites is like listening to your overdramatic friend begin a story.

The problem is that the media tends to sensationalize things that shouldn’t be sensationalized, and puts little emphasis on the things that actually are in our best interests to know about. One of those things is what we actually die from.

According to OurWorldInData.org, the things that kill us are oftentimes underreported by the media. This, in turn, may even affect our Googling habits, making the things that kill us go unnoticed. The site gives examples:

  • around one-third of the considered causes of deaths resulted from heart disease, yet this cause of death receives only 2-3 percent of Google searches and media coverage;

  • just under one-third of the deaths came from cancer; we actually google cancer a lot (37 percent of searches) and it is a popular entry here on our site; but it receives only 13-14 percent of media coverage;

  • we searched for road incidents more frequently than their share of deaths, however, they receive much less attention in the news;

  • when it comes to deaths from strokes, Google searches and media coverage are surprisingly balanced;

  • the largest discrepancies concern violent forms of death: suicide, homicide and terrorism. All three receive much more relative attention in Google searches and media coverage than their relative share of deaths. When it comes to the media coverage on causes of death, violent deaths account for more than two-thirds of coverage in the New York Times and The Guardian but account for less than 3 percent of the total deaths in the US.

A handy chart was made so you can get more of a visual representation of the information, which I’ve posted below.

As you can see, what we Google is actually more accurate to what really kills us than what the media tends to focus on. The media is far more interested in reporting on homicides (shootings, police actions, crime, etc), and reports on it around 23 percent of the time. However, things like cancer take a back seat. With 28 percent of people dying as a result of it, you’d figure the media would be more interested in talking about it, but it only covers it around 13 percent of the time.

When we’re left alone to find our own news, we tend to search for cancer far more often, with 37 percent of our searches

Oddly enough, the thing that kills us the most takes a back seat in searches and reporting. Heart disease kills us the most at 30 percent, yet our searches and the media give it around 2 percent of our attention. Meanwhile, terrorism kills us the absolute least, yet the media gives us an inordinate amount of news about it.

According to OurWorldInData.com, this has given us a skewed vision of reality and gives us the idea that our world is far more horrible than it is:

Media and its consumers are stuck in a reinforcing cycle. The news reports on breaking events, which are often based around a compelling story. Consumers want to know what’s going on in the world — we are quickly immersed by the latest headline. We come to expect news updates with increasing frequency, and media channels have clear incentives to deliver. This locks us into a cycle of expectation and coverage with a strong bias for outlier events. Most of us are left with a skewed perception of the world; we think the world is much worse than it is.

Trump Just Announced His Re-Election Campaign and A Lingering Question Gets Answered

Donald Trump speaking at CPAC 2011 in Washington, D.C. by Gage Skidmore, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

There was very little doubt Trump would run for a second term. Some of his critics on the right perhaps held out hope he’d decide not to and Mitt Romney would come riding in on a white horse, but nah. We are never going back there and it’s probably time for some to accept it.

Today, the President formally announced his re-election campaign, or better yet, he announced his coming announcement of his re-election campaign.

While I’m normally not too in to watching Trump rallies (dude’s hilarious but it’s a bit repetitive), this one is going to be grade A entertainment given its context. There’s no telling what the dude will say.

Another thing to note is that an important question appears to have been answered.

It looks like VP Pence is along for the ride again. While Trump running was a forgone conclusion, there had been some chatter that Pence might not be on the ticket again and that it would be beneficial to replace him with someone else.

I can see both sides. On the one hand, it’d be crappy to dump him as he’s not done a bad job. On the other hand, Pence adds basically nothing to the campaign. I think evangelicals are already with Trump regardless and that’s Pence’s only real draw. He reminds me of Tim Kaine running with Hillary in the sense that he’s just an after thought. A woman or someone from a swing state would be very valuable in what will be a grueling campaign.

Regardless, what’s done is done. Trump is the guy moving forward and Pence will be at his side. No pipe dream primary challenges are going to derail their path to the general election. If I’m Trump, I don’t even engage with whatever nut job Bill Kristol and company decide to put forward.

Given something unforeseen, it looks like June 18th is going to officially kick off the 2020 election season. Buckle your seatbelts. It’s going to be an insane year and a half.

[Screenshot from CBS News, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyqFhQPQnrM]

 

On Friday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler claimed “there certainly is” sufficient justification to impeach Donald J. Trump.

Oh boy…here we go.

The New York representative made the assertion in an interview with WNYC, during which he also explained that the maneuver must be done with the blessing of the public.

Good luck with that:

“Impeachment is a political act, and you cannot impeach a president if the American people will not support it. The American people, right now, do not support it because they do not know the story. They don’t know the facts.”

The facts? Good luck with THAT.

But he’s determined:

“We have to get the facts out. We have to hold a series of hearings, we have to hold the investigations.”

They’re never, ever, ever going to let the Mueller investigation go. The obsession is a tribute to time-wasting at the highest level. Think you’re good at it? You’re an amateur. Get elected to Congress and go pro.

“It’s very important that [Special Counsel Robert Mueller], to a television audience and to the American people, state [his findings] and answer questions about it, even if there is no new information.”

Mueller really stunk up the joint Wednesday, telling the country — essentially — that he couldn’t prove Trump didn’t do anything wrong:

“If we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the President did commit a crime.”

Why say that? That’s not how proof is supposed to work when someone’s accused.

Alan Dershowitz was unimpressed. Likewise, Tucker Carlson.

Presumably, Jerrold wasn’t opposed.

Despite the congressman’s statements, Mueller made clear he has no plans to testify before congressional committees:

“I hope and expect this to be the only time I will speak to you on this matter. No one has told me whether I can or should testify or speak further about this matter. There has been discussion about an appearance before Congress. Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report. It contains our findings and analysis, and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself.”

Speaking to CBS News Friday, Attorney General Bill Barr backed up Robert:

“It’s up to Bob, but I think the line he’s drawing, which is he’s going to stick to what’s in the report, is the proper line for any department official.”

Mueller also made reference to the longstanding DOJ policy of not charging a sitting president:

“Charging the president was not an option we could consider.”

Additionally, he recognized that “the Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse the president of wrongdoing.”

Now, it seems, Jerrold’s going full-on Al Green (here):

“No one, not even the President of the United States, is above the law.”

He declared Congress’ll “respond to the crimes, lies and other wrongdoing of President Trump.”

On Thursday, Trump shot back against notions of the “I” word:

“I don’t see how they can. It’s a dirty, filthy, disgusting word, impeach. It’s high crimes –there was no high crime. So how do you impeach?”

For a brief moment in time, I thought perhaps we could let go of the black balloon that is the ever lingering Mueller probe (here).

Now it appears I was right to begin with: It’ll outlast both cockroaches and the Rolling Stones. The investigation is forevermore a permanent component of existence. It will float above us like a cosmic fart, long after humanity’s bones have bleached in the sun.

I believe the American people are sick of it. Give up, already. For Pete’s sake. Trump won. Let it go.

Do you think the public want to see impeachment? Let us all know in the Comments section.

Hillary’s Gone Hollywood

Westlake Legal Group hillary-chelsea-clinton-1024x699-620x326 Hillary’s Gone Hollywood steven spielberg Hollywood Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment Chelsea Clinton

Let’s face it, a Hollywood ending was the only proper ending to the long, at times mysterious but always dramatic, political career of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Taking a cue from her one-time boss Barack Obama, who, along with his wife Michelle, are contributing their talents to Netflix, Hillary and daughter Chelsea are planning to “influence culture and society” by creating a Hollywood production company that will offer — what else? — adaptations of overtly female-centric material.

Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea are forming a production company to pursue film and television projects, making a foray into Hollywood after decades in the public eye.

The two have spoken to studios about financing a pipeline of programs, said people familiar with the matter. They would give a studio first crack at releasing the projects, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are at an early stage.

The family hopes to use film and television to influence culture and society now that Hillary Clinton is out of politics. They plan to focus on stories by and about women. The production company is one of many potential business opportunities that Hillary Clinton, 71, is considering.

Hillary Clinton previously signed on to help produce a TV show with Steven Spielberg. That series, “The Woman’s Hour,” is an adaptation of a book about activists who fought to earn women the right to vote.

The story of the women’s suffragette movement doesn’t necessarily have to be overlaid with today’s particular flavor of militant feminism. And it would be lovely if that historical time, which women in this country actually do look to favorably every time we cast a vote, could be presented in a way that’s lighter on preaching and shaming and heavier on historical accuracy and the triumph of the American spirit of equity.

But I’m not optimistic, unfortunately. Even with the esteemed and talented Spielberg in the director’s chair.

“The Woman’s Hour” is a project Hillary has planned to do with Steven Spielberg since August. Spielberg was Hillary’s 4th largest Hollywood donor during her 2016 presidential run, contributing a generous $2.2 million to the campaign. Director J.J. Abrams and producer Jeffrey Katzenberg were Hillary’s 3rd and 5th largest Hollywood donors, respectively. Now, throwing good money after bad, these big names might also supply projects to Clinton’s anticipated production company.

I suppose with all the other studios and productions companies moving to Georgia — and threatening to leave every other day — Hillary sensed some room in California to make a launch back into the spotlight. And if the Georgia contingent moves back to California, she’ll already have gained an advantage when they return.

Oddly, and rather hilariously, her association with Spielberg — who was critical of streaming services being taken seriously by the Academy of Motion Pictures — puts her at odds once again with the Obama as he helps produce content for streaming service Netflix.

So those old DC battles will still be playing out on your television and computer screens, just much more subtly. And with actors who aren’t also politicians. And everyone can still count on being told how to think and which woke issue is the woke issue of the day. But really that’s nothing new. And at least it’s blatantly in our faces rather than subliminally hinted at.

And just remember, as politicians invest themselves more and more into entertainment: you can always change the channel.

[Watch] Does Your Position on Immigration Make Sense?

Westlake Legal Group lou-620x351 [Watch] Does Your Position on Immigration Make Sense? Lou Perez immigration Humor Front Page Stories Featured Story comedy Celebrities

Comedian and head writer at We the Internet TV Lou Perez recently posted a hilarious but thoughtful video diatribe about immigration. Lou – who’s father was an immigrant – points out the amusing dichotomy between what open-borders progressives say about immigration and what they say about the man who currently resides in the White House.

I’m so thankful my father made that long journey nearly 40 years ago, but to be honest if my father were thinking about crossing the border today in 2019, I’d tell him not to. Even if it meant I’d never been born. Why? Ummm…because Donald Trump is president. You know- the racist, fascist otherwise known as HITLER. What American in their right mind would ever let immigrants legal or undocumented enter the country while Hitler is in office?? That would be so messed up. I keep seeing all this mixed messaging. It’s confusing. The same people who call Trump Hitler also want to let in migrants and asylum seekers? they compare turning away asylum seekers at the border to the U.S. turning away Jews before WWII, but wouldn’t the analogy be more like Jewish asylum seekers being sent right into the arms of Hitler. Because remember, Donald Trump is just like Hitler. Possibly worse depending on who’s tweet you’re reading.

Perez goes on to point out the hysterical hypocrisy of the celebrity Left, who keep promising to move to Canada while simultaneously demanding an open border to allow in as many immigrants as care to come.

If living under a Trump dictatorship is too hard for Lena Dunham to bear, can you imagine what it’s going to be like for Maria, a single mother with 2 children fleeing a murderous drug cartel in Central America?? If celebrities really cared they’d be down there at the border building a wall, pleading with them, “Stay out, Maria! It’s not safe here!  You can’t nanny our children or clean our houses!”

The kicker is the end, when Perez reminds us how great this nation truly is no matter who is in the White House.

Man, it is truly a testament to how amazing our country is that Donald Trump is the president and people are still risking their lives to get here.

President Trump’s nickname of “Pocahontas” has inflicted what looks like fatal damage to Sen. Elizabeth Warren. No matter how hard she tries, she just can’t seem to shake it. I can even imagine the flap being mentioned in her obituary one day. “Warren ran in the Democratic presidential primary, but was unable to gain traction in the race due to a running feud with President Trump over her claims of Native American heritage…”

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate appeared on the popular radio show, “The Breakfast Club,” this morning. During the interview, host “Charlemagne tha God” (CTG) doesn’t look like he’s buyin’ what Sen. Warren is sellin’. Warren turned on her best down-home accent, dropped her g’s, but CTG looked unconvinced.

She told her hosts, “I grew up in Oklahoma. I learned about my family the way that most people learn about their families. From my mama, my daddy, my aunts, my uncles. And, it’s what I believe…But I’m not a person of color. I’m not a citizen of a tribe. And I shouldn’t have done it.”

She acts like she has to convince us she’s not a person of color. We’ve known that all along Senator.

CTG asked, “If you had to do it over, would you?”

Warren dismisses that and says, “I can’t go back, but I should. But, what I can do is…” (She rattles off a list of campaign promises, housing, student loans, health)

Uninterested in her promises, CTG asks, “How long did you hold onto that? Because there’s some report that shows you were Native American on your Texas bar license and you were Native American on some documents when you were a professor at Harvard. So, like, why’d you do that?”

She tells him, “It’s what I believed. You know. It’s what I said. It’s what I learned from my family.”

Yeah, you already told us that.

CTG asks, “When did you find out you weren’t?”

Warren doesn’t want to answer that, because she’s always known she wasn’t a Native American. She tries to dodge the question. “You know. It’s. I’m not a person of color. I’m not a citizen of a tribe. And tribal citizenship is an important distinction. And not somethin’ I am. So…

Mother of God.

CTG wants to know, “Were there any benefits to that?”

Warren answers, “No. Boston Globe did a full investigation. Nothin’ about my family ever affected any job I ever got.”

Hmmm.

Finally, CTG says, “You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal, a little bit. Rachel Dolezal was a white woman pretending to be black.”

Warren blames it on her family again. “Well, this is what I learned from my family.”

Good grief.
