ICE Begins Its Raids On Illegal Immigrants Under Court Order in NYC. De Blasio Assures the Targets: ‘This is Your City’

Big news in this current climate: Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents began the first raid in an impending series as the Trump administration moves to detain and deport a distinct group in the country illegally.

The following was the response of NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio:

“Receiving reports of attempted but reportedly unsuccessful ICE enforcement actions in Sunset Park and Harlem. To everyone worried this weekend: This is your city. We will do everything we can to protect you.”

What’s his intention in giving them the city? Well, Bill indicated in January he’d like to take all the money from the people who shouldn’t have it and give it to the people of his choosing (here).

Kind of a Robin Hood who uses force of gun. Oh, wait — that’s called a thief.

To be fair, depending on your perspective, the forceful transference of resources — to some degree — could describe the government in general; so Bill’s merely keeping up with the times. Still, he seems desirous to take it up a notch or ten.

An official confirmed ICE’s attempt Saturday — in the neighborhoods of Manhattan’s Harlem section and Brooklyn’s Sunset Park — to The Wall Street Journal.

No arrests were made.



 

Who are the targets of the effort? That would be people who’ve resisted court orders to self-deport.

The raids will be performed in 10 major cities:

Atlanta
Chicago
Miami
Denver
New York City
San Francisco
Los Angeles
Baltimore
New Orleans
Houston

On Sunday, ICE Acting Director Matthew Albence explained the task to Fox News thusly:

“We are doing targeted enforcement actions against specific individuals who have had their day in immigration court and have been ordered removed by an immigration judge. We are merely executing those lawfully issued judge’s orders.

“These are individuals who have come into this country illegally, had the opportunity to make an asylum claim in front of an immigration judge, and most of them chose not to avail themselves at the opportunity and didn’t even show up to their first hearing.”

The battle continues. Will heightened defiance on the Left in America’s sanctuary cities hurt Democrats’ 2020 chances? As indicated by a poll covered by RedState’s Bonchie, the farther Left antics among Blue State operatives appear to be turning off voters. Presumably, the upcoming hoopla won’t help.

As Democrats Fight Civil War, President Trump Dons His Ballistic Vest, Kevlar Helmet And Stirs The Pot, Forcing Pelosi To Make Nice With The Serpents Who Want To Destroy Her.

My good friend and RedState colleague Bonchie, has written a chiding post regarding a series of tweets by President Trump this morning. His position appears to be that President Trump’s tweets and inferred (by the leftists) choice of targets, will leave our side open to charges of racism. My initial response to that is, “So What?” They are gonna call us racists no matter what we say or do. Time to cowboy up and push back against patently false accusations…and do so with force, which the President did this morning.

Let’s take a look at the tweets in question. It appears to most reasonable folks that the President is referring only to two Congresswomen, Reps Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Although due to the obvious corruption and mishandling of hurricane recovery in Puerto Rico, he could possibly be including Rep Cortez, but I doubt it.

What the President tweeted, is what most of middle America is thinking; Your families fled some third world hell hole that practices abuse of women—including genital mutilation, in order to come to these United States. You and your families live under the protection that a Constitutional Representative Republic provides. Your family has more opportunity here, than in any other nation in the World. Instead of continually badmouthing these United States, why don’t you and your family go back to the third world hole you came from and fix it.

That’s a reasonable response to their caustic and unfounded (and often profane) criticism of the President. It’s certainly not racist, unless you are a leftist or a RINO enabler like Paul Ryan. It might sound ugly, but the President’s tweets this morning echo a sentiment that a good majority of Americans strongly support, although they might not admit to it outside their circle of close friends.

Of course, rather than look at what the President wrote, like most leftists, Pelosi and her posse joined the usual screeching of “Racisim!” What is sad, is that in some quarters our side are still afraid of that epithet. Nothing, repeat nothing that President Trump said in that series of three tweets was out of line or remotely racist. He is merely pointing out the blatant hypocrisy of fleeing a country that is racist, that is misogynist and that is intolerant of other religions, to the point of destroying Churches and killing Christians, while badmouthing the country that took you in. Let’s not forget the odd homosexual or two being tossed off a building.

Let’s not also forget, the two Congresswomen he was likely referring to, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib made a big deal out of browbeating the House to amend its rules so they could wear their hijabs on the floor. How nice, they insist on changing the rules to wear an article of clothing that openly symbolizes the maltreatment of women in the Muslim world.

Trump is saying and doing exactly what I sent him to Washington to do, push back on leftist propaganda and do so in plain language. Not only is he doing that, but he’s giving us on the right the courage to also push back. We don’t have to be afraid of being labeled as racists. We now have the courage of our convictions to merely snort in derision and get on with the job of making America great again.

Great Job Mr. President. Keep putting these mindless twits in their place. Oh. One final note—President Trump has managed to get Nancy Pelosi to come out in support of these children. How do you think that is going affect her grip on the levers of power in the House? This newfound “unity” my colleague points to, is merely a chimera.

Ya Gotta Love Infighting: Michael Avenatti Attacks Alyssa Milano for Attacking Him

Westlake Legal Group cat-3937880_1280-620x383 Ya Gotta Love Infighting: Michael Avenatti Attacks Alyssa Milano for Attacking Him Uncategorized Sexism nike Michael Avenatti Front Page Stories Featured Story domestic violence democrats basta Alyssa Milano Allow Media Exception #metoo

 

 

There’s nothing quite like political party infighting.

This past week, two of the Left’s most cartoonish characters collided.

Can’t-get-enough-TV-time attorney Michael Avenatti slammed actress-turned-mistaken-Paul-Revere Alyssa Milano over an aged tweet she fired off over allegations of domestic violence on the part of the used car salesm– I mean, lawyer.

Back in November, Michael was arrested after an ex-girlfriend accused him of grabbing her wrist and ejecting her from his apartment (here).

However, in February, it was announced that Michael wouldn’t be criminally charged.

But Alyssa long-ago made clear her position on allegations: We are to “believe all women.” Therefore, if it is untrue that a man did something, it is true that a man did something.

Or, to put it another way:

Alyssa Milano Pounds The Door Of A Congresswoman: All Women Are Right, Because Some Women Are Right

Or:

“Justice, schmustice. I’ve been sent to Earth to offer Charmed and salvation.”

Here’s what Alyssa had to say in November:

As pointed out by Fox News:

The hashtag “Basta” is a Spanish word meaning “enough,” which Avenatti often used on Twitter in posts critical of Donald Trump.

No word on why Michael waited until now to respond, but on Monday, he let Alyssa have it:

It should be noted that the domestic case is still open.

But Michael’s got bigger charges to face: The goofy guy — who made 254 television appearances in just one year — was indicted in May for allegedly trying to blackmail Nike and could be going to prison for a very long time (here).

Last week, the California State Bar motioned to suspend his license to practice law, given that his alleged criminality “poses a substantial threat of harm to clients or the public.”

For more Avenatti wackiness, see here, here, and here.

To watch an actress lost in the depths, please look here, here, here, here, here, and here.

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

Westlake Legal Group justice-2755765_1280-620x436 Incredible: Man Saves His Children From a Carjacker, But the Shocking Ending is Harrowing Violence Uncategorized theft scott small philadelphia police department philadelphia Pennsylvania parents Front Page Stories Featured Story Culture crime children Allow Media Exception

 

 

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 Pale Blue Dot

Westlake Legal Group 3B5C4F47-CBC7-4439-8E71-7443DD72CEC7-620x548 The Pale Blue Dot Uncategorized republicans religion Politics Philosophy life Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

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!

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?

Westlake Legal Group civil-war-62990_1280-620x388 Tennessee Governor Honors KKK Grand Wizard & Slave Trader Nathan Bedford Forrest. Because He Has To? Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

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.

Billy Joel Features Bill & Hillary at His Madison Square Garden Show. The Crowd Boos

Billy Joel is faaantastic. The guy knows how to write a compelling song, and the diversity of his catalogue is incredible — from “Piano Man” to “We Didn’t Start the Fire” to “Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel)” to “Big Man on Mulberry Street” to “The Longest Time,” his mastery of genre knows no superior.

Bill and Hillary Clinton know how to run the gamut, too. The power couple have made headlines over the years for so many different things: scandals, two presidential terms, affairs, Bengazi, the governorship, impeachment, a controversial multi-billion-dollar foundation, and an absolutely jaw-dropping amount of expressed bitterness over the 2016 election (here, here, here, here, here, and here).

Some of those haven’t elicited the same kind of love stirred by, say, “Tell Her About It.”

Therefore, when the duo attended the Piano Man’s Madison Square Garden show Thursday — as reported by Fox News — some folks erected a wall of boos. 

And that would be in New York — the very state for which Hillary served as senator.

As noted by The Daily Wire, the Clintons have seen a fair amount of public dissent as of late: They slashed their book tour prices to as low as $10 in May, and the Broadway extravaganza about the couple — starring John Lithgow and Laurie Metcalf, no less — was forced to close early due to poor sales.

Bill’s connection to alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein probably isn’t boosting their Q. But a recent statement insisted the former president’s An Innocent Man.

Whatever the reason, the Washington icons didn’t gel with this week’s New York State of Mind:

After the Long Island-born legend dedicated a song to the former first couple and flashed them up on the screen at Madison Square Garden, initial cheers turned to boos from the audience.

And So It Goes

Light in a Dark Place: Chick-fil-A Manager Delivers Kindness to a 96-Year-Old Man in a Story That’ll Brighten Your Day

Want another story to increase your love for America’s favorite chicken joint?

In Maryland Thursday, a 96-year-old World War II veteran entered a Chick-fil-A “almost in tears.”

Rudy Somoza, a manager at the restaurant, recounted the situation to CNN:

“He was shaking, almost in tears saying he barely made it to the store on three tires because one was bad. As soon as he finished his sentence, Daryl informed me he needed to help this gentleman right now.”

“Daryl” would be head manager Daryl Howard, who’s worked at the closed-on-Sunday franchise for nearly a decade. He left the counter to make a difference in the life of someone who served his country back when war meant looking into the eyes of your enemy. A time when Americans voluntarily chose to fight out of a deeply-rooted patriotism.

Rudy continued:

“[D]aryl jumped into action without hesitation.”

15 minutes later, the deed was done. And it’s the kind a helping hand — it seems to me — of which we could use much more in this current climate of political vitriol and social media narcissism.

While talking heads are touting “diversity” and progressivism, our real strengths as a nation are much simpler and not so nearly faddish: What makes for a greater world are liberty and kindness.

Two fast-food managers apparently agree, at least in part.

“His action of kindness was beautiful,” Rudy noted. “Daryl has always been so helpful to anyone in need and deserves this recognition.”
