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.”

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.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

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.

Ilhan Omar’s Lawyer: “Hard to Explain Two Marriages”

Ilhan Omar’s questionable marriages/immigration fraud scheme are again in the headlines, with her lawyer now struggling to make a credible argument on her behalf. “I’m not legally married to two people, but I am legally married to one and culturally married to another” is how her campaign spokesman tried to explain away the scandal in August 2016 regarding information that she married her brother while still married to her husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, marrying and apparently divorcing in their “faith tradition.” Meanwhile, there remains no record on file for the first marriage while “husband 2” (her brother) is well documented. Of course, potential investigations are being shut down by accusations of “Islamaphobia.”

Here’s more from Spectator…

I’m not legally married to two people, but I am legally married to one and culturally married to another.’ That’s how Ilhan Omar’s campaign spokesman Ben Goldfarb summarized Omar’s conjugal arrangements in an email in August 2016, when Omar was running for Congress and her advisers were trying to stifle allegations of double marriage — with a man alleged to be her brother.

Omar supplied this email to the Minnesota Campaign and Public Disclosure Board’s investigation into her campaign financing. That investigation concluded on June 6 by ordering Omar to refund $3,500 in misused campaign funds, and to pay a $500 fine. It also revealed that in 2014 and 2015, Omar may have broken federal and state law by filing a joint tax return with her husband Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi — when she was married to another man.

Rhode Island Jumps on Abortion Bandwagon

Rhode Island just became the latest state to allow abortion up until birth if deemed “necessary for the health or life of the mother.” “The new law says the state will not restrict the right to an abortion prior to fetal viability or afterward if an abortion is necessary for the health or life of the mother,” the Associated Press reported. “It repeals older state abortion laws deemed unconstitutional by the courts. The bill was approved Wednesday in the Senate 21 to 17 after two hours of debate, then in the House 45 to 29 after a half hour debate.” One Democrat, Bridget Valverde, defended the legislation by calling birth a “traumatic experience,” while abortion continues to be referred to as “health care.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

New York Democrats kicked off 2019 by passing the most radical abortion bill in U.S. history, which erased the state’s limitation on abortion of 24 weeks, allowing abortion up until birth to protect the mother’s health, including mental health, and entirely removed abortion from the penal code. Other blue states are now following suit with their own aggresively “pro-choice” bills, citing the chance of the repeal of Roe v. Wade as the impetus.

On Wednesday, Rhode Island joined New York as another blue state that allows abortion up until birth if deemed “necessary for the health or life of the mother,” The Associated Press reports.

“The new law says the state will not restrict the right to an abortion prior to fetal viability or afterward if an abortion is necessary for the health or life of the mother,” AP reports. “It repeals older state abortion laws deemed unconstitutional by the courts.

Elizabeth Warren the New “Not Bernie”

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is the new “compromise nominee” for the Left according to political insiders. “The Massachusetts senator may be out of sync with party centrists, but she’s drawn at least one sharp line with [Bernie] Sanders that is resonating with prominent moderate voices as she surges into the top tier in national and early state polls,” POLITICO reported. Warren appears to be slowly overtaking Joe Biden as the fusionist candidate for the Democrats. If she can shed the Fauxcahontas baggage and perform well in the debate, this could be a fight worth watching.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

When Joe Biden entered the 2020 presidential race, he was seen as the “compromise nominee,” the so-called centrist that could win the primary and beat Trump in the general election. He was thrust out there as a moderate-by-comparison candidate in a field of otherwise hardcore radicals. That was the whole point of his candidacy. But it turns out the Democrat Party establishment is warming up to one of his opponents instead: Fauxcahontas herself, Elizabeth Warren.

There was a time not so long ago when leading Democrats warned that Elizabeth Warren’s “fantasy-based blue-state populism” risked leading the party to ruin.
But in a revealing tell of how far her campaign has come since its early February launch, some unlikely voices in the center of the party are growing more comfortable with the idea of Warren as the nominee.

Senators Reach Border Security Emergency Deal

The Senate Appropriations Committee struck a deal to fund President Trump’s request for $4.5 billion to secure the U.S.-Mexico border. The funds include $3.3 billion for humanitarian aid to increase the number of shelters and care for unaccompanied minors as well as $1.1 billion for other border operations despite Democrats balking at additional Immigration and Customs Enforcement funding. The bill is expected to get a vote on the Senate floor before the Fourth of July recess, and if House Democrats kill the bill, which is expected, it’ll play right into President Trump’s reelection campaign. Good luck with all that, Nancy.

Here’s more from The Hill…

The top members of the Senate Appropriations Committee have struck a deal on President Trump’s request for more funding tied to the U.S.-Mexico border after weeks of stalemate, two aides confirmed to The Hill.

The deal — worked out between Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the top Democrat on the panel — would provide Trump more than $4.5 billion for the border funding package.

The agreement will be marked up in the Senate Appropriations Committee on Wednesday and is expected to get a vote on the Senate floor before lawmakers leave for the Fourth of July recess next week.
