Trump Slams AOC’s Job Killer Green New Deal

President Trump raked socialist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s (D-NY) ever popular Green New Deal over the coals on Monday: “While we’re focused on practical solutions, more than 100 Democrats in Congress now support the so-called Green New Deal. Their plan is estimated to cost our economy nearly $100 trillion-a number unthinkable, a number not affordable even in the best of times.” Trump made the remarks in a speech about America’s Environmental Leadership in which he praised the U.S. for delivering on carbon emissions reductions, while those nations clinging to the Paris Climate Accord failed to do so. In typical socialist fashion, it’s rules for thee but not for me.

President Donald Trump slammed democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Green New Deal on Monday while speaking at the White House on America’s Environmental Leadership.

Trump noted America’s successes in leading the world in carbon emissions reductions while other signatories on the Paris Climate Accord have failed to deliver results.

“And today, the United States is ranked — listen to this — number one in the world for access to clean drinking water — ranked number one in the world,” Trump said. “One of the main messages of air pollution — particulate matter — is six times lower here than the global average. So we hear so much about some countries and what everyone is doing. We’re six times lower than the average. That’s a tremendous number.”

Trump Invites Media to Tour Immigration Detention Centers

In the wake of Left wing pearl-clutching over detention center chain-link fencing, President Trump has announced his plan to open illegal alien centers for media tours. “What we’re going to do is I’m going to start showing some of these detention centers because – to the press. I want the press to go in and see them,” Trump said, adding that the fake news New York Times is complaining about crowded conditions but not the open borders enabling it. The Left wants its cake and to eat it, too. We cannot address the deluge at the border without having someplace to house the homeless aliens streaming across the border. Alas, common sense isn’t all that common.

President Trump told reporters he will invite members of the media to tour the immigrant detention centers that have been scrutinized over their conditions in recent weeks.

“What we’re going to do is I’m going to start showing some of these detention centers because — to the press. I want the press to go in and see them,” Trump said Sunday before boarding Air Force One.

Trump said he spoke with acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Mark Morgan and acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan to plan for the press to visit the centers.

Political Activists Plan DC Protests

This year’s Independence Day festivities in the nation’s capital will be marked by political activists opposing each other with a “Demand Free Speech” rally, pitting the Proud Boys who rally against Antifa and their ilk, including Black Lives Matter D.C. and Sanctuary DMV. The irony for the Left is thick in that they’ll be protesting against free political speech for conservatives on the day we celebrate political freedom.

Here’s more from Stamford Advocate…

The apolitical fireworks fest that typically marks Independence Day in the District of Columbia will be upended this week by protests that include a faceoff between activist groups two days after President Donald Trump addresses the nation from the Lincoln Memorial.

Demonstrations will begin Thursday with a flag burning, a senior citizens’ singalong and the unveiling of “Baby Trump,” a scowling, orange-faced balloon best known for its flights over London protests.

They will continue into Saturday as several right-wing demonstrators, including members of the Western-chauvinist Proud Boys group, host a rally in Freedom Plaza – met by a coalition of progressive groups to show the District is “no place for white supremacists,” organizers of the All Out D.C. counterprotest said.

Biden Fails to Impress Iowans

According to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, likely Iowa Democratic caucus voters are not buying into 76-year-old Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign bid for the White House. Among those polled, 36.7 percent cited an age-related reason as their chief concern, ranging from being too old or even that he had already had his time. Even more, 41.24% were not impressed with Biden’s performance in the debates compared with 50% who said Kamala Harris did better than expected. Once again, Democrats look to crown the latest minority group star as the heir apparent to president of the Club for Victimhood.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Joe Biden’s age and what was seen as a poor performance in last week’s debate appear to be significant problems for him in Iowa.

A Suffolk University/USA Today poll of likely Iowa Democratic caucus voters released Thursday found that a third of those who do not support Biden cite the former vice president’s 76 years, lack of fresh ideas, or other reasons relating to Biden’s long political career as reasons for spurning him.

Some 36.7% cited age-related reasons. 15.2% said that Biden was too old or that they want a younger candidate, 7.5% said that they want someone new/fresh ideas, 7.2% said that Biden should “pass the torch” or that he had his time, 4.8% said that they want diversity or that Biden is old school, and 2.1% said he was out of touch.

MSNBC Censors President Trump’s 4th of July Event

MSNBC just stooped to a new low after refusing to air President Trump’s Independence Day “Salute to America” for no apparent reason. Before the decision, MSNBC host Joy Reid offered her own criticism of the patriotic festivities, arguing they remind her of Russia’s Vladimir Putin and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. Of course, the MSNBC Leftist herd had no problem with President Obama’s sporadic “patriotic” gestures.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

While other networks such as Fox News and C-SPAN will be airing President Trump’s “ Salute to America,” MSNBC says it will not carry the Independence Day event live.

While the network won’t stream the event live, a spokesperson told Politico that it would assess in real time whether to air clips from the National Mall, which will feature a speech from Trump at the Lincoln Memorial, a massive fireworks display, a flyover by Air Force One and military aircraft, as well as tanks.

Earlier Tuesday, MSNBC host Joy Reid expressed criticism for the event and said that the display of military vehicles in the nation’s capital was reminiscent of leaders such as Russia’s Vladimir Putin and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.

Harris Hires Former Clinton Lawyer Behind Fusion GPS

Marc Elias, Hillary Clinton’s former top lawyer who hired Fusion GPS to carry out the “collusion delusion” conspiracy oppo research, is now working for 2020 Democratic contender Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA). Elias personally “retained Fusion GPS … to conduct the research” and did it “on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC,” according to The Washington Post. Even being the subject of a recent federal lawsuit alleging the breaking of campaign finance laws and two pending Federal Election Commission complaints did not stop Harris from hiring Clinton’s sleazeball leftovers.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The former top lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign who hired Fusion GPS to carry out controversial opposition research against then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016 is now working for a top 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful.

Marc Elias, who heads Perkins Coie’s political law group, became general counsel for California Sen. Kamala Harris’ presidential bid this year. Elias, who held the same position in Clinton’s campaign, is named in two pending Federal Election Commission complaints and in a recent federal lawsuit alleging that the Clinton campaign broke campaign finance laws when it used Perkins Coie to hire Fusion GPS.

Fusion GPS went on to hire British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who compiled an unverified dossier allegedly based on sources close to the Kremlin which was disseminated to the media and used by the FBI to obtain Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants targeting former Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

Media Ignore ANTIFA Attack on Gay Journalist

Left wing politicians and their MSM lapdogs are doing their best to ignore the Antifa domestic terrorists’ assault of Andy Ngo, a conservative, gay journalist, despite touting rainbows all over social media during a gay pride weekend. Cracks are showing, however, after CNN’s Jake Tapper commented on it, tweeting: “Antifa regularly attacks journalists; it’s reprehensible.” Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), in turn, called for the Justice Department to investigate and bring legal action against Portland’s mayor after he ordered city police officers to stand down and do nothing during the Antifa melee.

Sen. Ted Cruz called for the Justice Department to investigate the mayor of Portland after a conservative journalist was attacked by Antifa members.

“To federal law enforcement: investigate & bring legal action against a Mayor who has, for political reasons, ordered his police officers to let citizens be attacked by domestic terrorists,” the Texas Republican tweeted Sunday.

“Those who facilitated or turned a blind eye to domestic terrorists—e.g., the Mayor—should be held fully accountable. By DOJ. By civil litigators. By criminal prosecutors. AND by the media,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.

Beto: “Bring Some of These Walls Down”

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke called for the removal of border walls during a visit to Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children in Miami-Dade County in Florida during which he blamed border walls for the deaths of “thousands of people.” O’Rourke elaborated, “More walls means more suffering and more death, so no more walls. Where we can, let’s bring some of these walls down.” Yet again, Leftist idealism ignores reality; namely, the walls in such places as Israel keep the really, really bad guys at bay. Instead, Beto’s policy serves as a de facto red carpet for would-be terrorists.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Democratic presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke visited the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children in Miami-Dade County, Florida, on Thursday and suggested America should “bring some of these walls down” that assist in the prevention of illegal immigration.

Questioned on whether he would “tear down Trump’s wall,” the former U.S. Congressman replied he “wouldn’t build any additional walls or fences.”

“We’ve got more than 600 miles of walls and fences along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border,” O’Rourke said. “Here’s the consequence of that: thousands, thousands of people have died because of these walls, they’re being pushed out into evermore treacherous stretches of the U.S.-Mexico border, attempting to cross.

SCOTUS Drops Political Gerrymandering Case

The Supreme Court voted 5-4 to decline imposing legal limits on how lawmakers draw electoral districts, dismissing challenges brought by Democrats in North Carolina and Republicans in Maryland. “The high court said partisan gerrymandering claims present political questions that federal courts cannot decide,” reported The Wall Street Journal. The ruling comes ahead of the 2020 census that will require the redrawing of district maps to account for population shifts and could be even more gerrymandered with the ruling no longer pending. This is a major development, as Democrats hope to stop the GOP from drawing districts to favor the 2020 election. We expect this decision to have long-term ripple effects.

Here’s more from Wall Street Journal…

Federal judges have no authority to correct partisan gerrymandering, the Supreme Court said Thursday in a 5-to-4 decision that allows politicians to keep drawing electoral districts that entrench their power unless state law—or future congressional legislation—keeps them from doing so.

The decision by the court’s conservatives majority overruled lower courts and rejected two constitutional challenges partisan district mapmaking, one brought by Democrats North Carolina and another bye Republicans in Maryland.

Massachusetts Dems to Expand Abortions for Minors

Massachusetts liberals are jumping on the abortion-on-demand bandwagon seeking to overturn current state law prohibiting abortion after 24 weeks… and eliminating parental consent requirements for minors seeking abortions. According to the legislation’s proponents, the “Removing Obstacles and Expanding Access to Women’s Reproductive Health,” or ROE Act, is meant to cement the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court ruling into state law. Even if the bill passes both chambers of the state legislature, however, it’s not certain whether or not Republican Governor Charlie Baker will sign the abortion free-for-all. Nevertheless, the stage is set for a major showdown in the Supreme Court over Roe.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Massachusetts Democrats are inching toward expanding the right to abortion, giving physicians greater discretion to perform abortions later in pregnancy.

The “Removing Obstacles and Expanding Access to Women’s Reproductive Health,” or ROE, Act is meant to codify in state law the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling, which legalized abortion nationwide, as other states pass abortion bans in the hope of overturning it .

Currently, Massachusetts law prohibits abortions after a gestational age at which the fetus would be viable outside of the womb, about 24 weeks. The ROE Act would allow for abortions after that stage of pregnancy in certain circumstances, based on a doctor’s judgment.
