CNN Triggered by Troops’ MAGA Hats

CNN swiftly pivoted from its premature report blasting President Trump’s failure to visit our overseas troops on Christmas to attacking our troops for asking President Trump to sign their “Make American Great Again” hats and “Trump 2020” patches. The horror! CNN’s “The Situation Room” even brought in Obama-era “experts” to discuss whether or not our soldiers were violating Department of Defense guidelines that forbid partisan political activities. Naturally, the “experts” found the servicemen guilty because the items were campaign related, but they conveniently forgot that the prohibition is not for individual personal political opinions so long as they do not imply or appear to imply DoD sponsorship or endorsement of a candidate or cause. The U.S. Uniform Code of Military Justice apparently doesn’t apply when CNN’s opinion is entirely sufficient.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Wednesday, as President Trump visited American troops stationed in Iraq at the al-Asad airbase, CNN took a shot at the troops who asked Trump to sign their “Make America Great Again” hats or their embroidered patches reading “Trump 2020.” The network discussed whether the service members might have violated Department of Defense guidelines against partisan political activities, and later implied on its website that the troops had indeed violated the rules. But CNN left out a key part of the guidelines when they quoted them.

On CNN’s “The Situation Room,” the network turned to a military expert to determine whether what the troops did was inappropriate. Shockingly, that military expert turned out to be none other than Retired Rear Adm. John Kirby, a former Obama administration spokesperson. Even more shockingly, Kirby theorized that the troops’ actions were indeed inappropriate, saying archly, “It is in fact a campaign slogan, that is a campaign item, and it is completely inappropriate for the troops to do this.”

Ocasio-Cortez: Jesus Was a “Refugee”

Socialist Rep-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter on Tuesday to politicize Christmas and Christ himself…complete with a bit of hyperbole. “Joy to the World!” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Merry Christmas everyone – here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. (Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)” She was quickly fact-checked that Jesus was not a refugee baby nor were his parents, Mary and Joseph, seeking asylum, as they were in Bethlehem to participate in Roman emperor Augustus’ census but found themselves without a place to stay. The Left loves to torture history so that it fits nicely into their political agenda. We should also point out that Emperor Augustus maintained unbelievably low taxes to encourage economic development. Memo to AOC: you’re doing it wrong!

Democratic socialist Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced intense backlash on Tuesday after she decided to politicize Christmas by making false claims about Jesus.

“Joy to the World!” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Merry Christmas everyone – here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. (Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)”

Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that Jesus was a refugee baby in a manger is categorically false, as Fox News’ Samuel Chamberlain explains.

Trump Doubles Down on Border Wall Demands and Prevails

With his resistance to the Schumer-Pelosi shutdown political tactics and threats, President Trump is making it clear to his voters that he’s not just talk. A key victory could be that his resistance forced the House to approve border wall funding after POTUS rejected a Senate-approved House-passed bill that lacked funding. “The fact that he’s fighting here today is huge,” said Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC). “You can remember the Alamo in San Antonio. It’s not because they won there, it’s because they fought there. And if we’re willing to fight, a lot of people support the president and his willingness to fight. “President Trump will be dealing with a Democrat-controlled House come January when the new session of Congress begins though it’s not very promising for incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) if her strategy is to browbeat President Trump. History has shown that doesn’t end well, but it certainly won’t stop her from trying.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

President Trump on Thursday showed his voters he’s willing to fight for them by insisting that Congress approve border wall funding, a move that could pay off during his re-election campaign in 2020.

“The fact that he’s fighting here today is huge,” said Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., on the same day Trump forced the House to approve a bill funding his border wall. “You can remember the Alamo in San Antonio. It’s not because they won there, it’s because they fought there. And if we’re willing to fight, a lot of people support the president and his willingness to fight.”

Buoyed by the House Freedom Caucus, which Meadows helms, Trump forced the House to include $5.7 billion in a spending deal Thursday night. While the bill is doomed in the Senate, Republicans say it was a pivotal moment for Trump that showed he’s willing to stick his neck out to keep his campaign promises.

2020 Democratic Ticket Looking White…and Male

In the very near future, Democrats may be finding themselves stuck between choosing whether to stick to their progressive anti-white man party line or choosing the white, male candidate best poised to take on President Trump in the 2020 election. “There was a poll put out by a group called Democracy for America,” Michael Knowles noted on Wednesday’s episode of “The Michael Knowles Show.” “This was a major poll, this a poll of 94,000 progressives, self-identified progressives. Who is the number one choice for 2020? Oh, it’s not Kamala, oh no no. It’s not Cory ‘Spartacus’ Booker, no no no no. It is Bernie Sanders.” According to the poll, Bernie beat Biden at the polls thrice over, and in third place was a white Irish guy named Robert Francis O’Rourke, who is better known by his faux Hispanic nickname “Beto.” So much for the Dems’ diversity and broad appeal.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Remember the old line about the parties switching in the 1960s? Well, why then does the Democrat Party today seem to prefer white guys for their presidential nomination in 2020? Michael Knowles takes a look at some recent polling data that suggests exactly that on Wednesday’s episode of “The Michael Knowles Show.”

“Democrats have looked ahead to 2020, and they only want white guys. They don’t want women, not black guys, not Hispanic people, nope! Only white guys,” said Knowles.

“There was a poll put out by a group called Democracy for America,” he explained. “This was a major poll, this a poll of 94,000 progressives, self-identified progressives. Who is the number one choice for 2020? Oh, it’s not Kamala, oh no no. It’s not Cory ‘Spartacus’ Booker, no no no no. It is Bernie Sanders.”

Liberal Media Loves ALL Immigrants…Except FLOTUS

A university in Germany has published a study exposing the U.S. liberal media’s double standard in its coverage of immigrants. For them, there’s no love to spare for First Lady Melania Trump, who is the embodiment of the American Dream after lawfully immigrating to the U.S. from Solvenia. “SNL portrays Melania Trump as an uncharismatic doll and ‘trophy wife,’ drawing on misogynist and anti-immigrant views, echoing neoliberal media, such as The New Yorker, which described her as ‘the perfect body on which to hang a brand,'” said research fellow Katharina Wiedlack. Wiedlack elaborated that “stereotypes of post-Soviet women, the slut and the victim,” are in full swing when the liberal media discusses the First Lady. Could it be that the Left only loves immigrants when they’re politically expedient? We’re shocked by this revelation!

Here’s more from PJ Media…
A research fellow and professor at the University of Flensburg in Germany has published a new study highlighting the double standards the liberal media uses when discussing Melania Trump.

The first lady, 47, was born and raised in Slovenia, and is the only first lady to become a naturalized United States citizen. Though Mrs. Trump should be seen as an immigration success story, research fellow Katharina Wiedlack, Ph.D., worried that it has been otherwise.

Her study, “In/visibly different: Melania Trump and the othering of Eastern European women in US culture,” was published December 6 and analyzed the 2016 SNL skit “Melanianade” to illustrate how Mrs. Trump is depicted throughout media in the United States.

Democrats Set New Priorities for 116th Congress

Democrats are making clear that changes are coming to the scope of activities on Capitol Hill. For example, reining in “skyrocketing” prescription prices, investigating “security clearances” vetted for members of the Trump administration, and dealing with “voter suppression” issues take top billing. To sum up the new agenda: retribution, retribution, retribution. Meanwhile, real issues, such as border security, economic development, and defense, will curiously be ignored…right up until voters begin voting in the 2020 primaries. Good luck with all that, Dems.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

WASHINGTON — Under the leadership of successive GOP chairmen Darrell Issa (Calif.), Jason Chaffetz (Utah) and Trey Gowdy (S.C.) the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee launched high-profile investigations into Operation Fast and Furious, the Benghazi attack, the Clinton Foundation and more.

Poised to control the committee in two weeks — for the first time eight years — incoming Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) told CNN this morning that “skyrocketing” prescription drug prices will be a “very big” agenda item in the 116th Congress.

But Cummings is also planning administration oversight.

“We have control over security clearances. That comes under our jurisdiction. And we noticed that there were a lot of problems with security clearances with regard to Mr. Porter, Mr. Flynn, and others, and Kushner. And so we want to take a look at that,” he said.

Stephen Miller Crushes CBS over Death of Migrant Girl

Senior White House adviser Stephen Miller took on CBS’s “Face the Nation” and leftists across the nation in their attempt to pin the death of a 7-year-old migrant on Customs and Border Patrol. When asked who was to blame, Miller emphasized the role of open borders judges in entrenching a system that led to such a humanitarian crisis. He made clear the issue in the shutdown fight over the border wall: “At stake is the question of whether or not the United States remains a sovereign country. Whether or not we can establish and enforce rules for entrance into our country. The Democrat Party has a simple choice. They can either choose to fight for America’s working class or to promote illegal immigration.” Spot-on. When the media’s fear-mongering settles down, this is the fundamental, unavoidable question, and Democrats STILL do not have a palatable answer for the electorate. That’s a chicken looking for a roost in November 2020.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Senior White House adviser Stephen Miller appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday where he blasted “left wing, activist” judges for rulings that have put lives of Americans and migrants at risk by incentivizing the “most vulnerable populations” to come to the United States.

Miller made the remarks in response to a question from CBS’s Margaret Brennan, who asked who was to blame for the death of a 7-year-old migrant girl who died while she was under the protection of Customs and Border Patrol.

“Our hearts break for the tragic death of the 7-year-old girl,” Miller began. “The loss of that precious life is. Horrifying. It is a painful reminder of the ongoing humanitarian tragedy that is illegal immigration and the misery that it spreads.”

Parkland Deputy’s Attorney Declares “No Legal Duty” to Protect Students

The lawyer for former Deputy Scot Peterson, who cowered during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February 2018, is arguing that his client had “no legal duty” to protect the students. The lawyer for Andrew Pollack, whose daughter was killed during the shooting, countered saying, “It is inconceivable that anyone could advance the proposition that Scot Peterson had no duty to these people. That is an absurd proposition. … This was an abdication of responsibility when this [shooting] happened, and it is an abdication of responsibility now in this courtroom.” Peterson memorably arrived on the scene, radioed for help, and then stood outside the building for another five minutes as the shooter killed more students. This is abject cowardice, and Peterson should serve jail time.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The deputy who stood by while the February 14, 2018, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting was taking place asked a judge to rule that he had “no legal duty” to protect the students.

The Sun-Sentinel reports that Scot Peterson’s attorney, Michael Piper, told Judge Englander Henning, “We want to say he had an obligation, but the law isn’t that. From a legal standpoint, there was no duty.”

Henning rejected Piper’s argument, opining that Peterson had an “obligation to act reasonably” in response to the shooting.

The suit against Peterson is a wrongful death suit brought by Andrew Pollack, father of Parkland shooting victim Meadow Pollack.

Joel Perwin, Pollack’s attorney, expressed astonishment that Peterson is trying to get the suit dismissed. Perwin said, “It is inconceivable that anyone could advance the proposition that Scot Peterson had no duty to these people.

McCarthy Calls Schumer-Pelosi Border Wall Bluff

During a Tuesday appearance on Fox News’ “The Story,” House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told host Martha MacCallum that he has 100% confidence that the $5 billion in border wall funding can pass the still GOP-controlled House of Representatives. MacCallum asked, “So, you do have 218 votes in the House to pass $5 billion for wall funding. You’re 100% confident on that? ” McCarthy: “Yes I am.” His remarks come after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had a 15-minute televised spat with President Donald Trump at the White House, with both sides threatening a shutdown of the federal government.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) expressed 100% confidence that he has the votes to pass a bill that has $5 billion in border wall funding.

Host Martha MacCallum asked, “[A]re you guys going to be able to pass a bill that has $5 billion in wall funding before you leave for the holidays, or are you going to be here throughout Christmas, and perhaps throughout New Year’s?”

McCarthy answered, “Well, the answer here is yes in the House. The question is, it takes 60 votes in the Senate, would Senator Schumer (D-NY) want to have another shutdown like he had before?”

Hillary Whistleblower Raided by FBI Claims “Secret Police State”

Dennis Nathan Cain, a former FBI contractor turned Clinton-Uranium One court-recognized whistleblower, says the FBI raid on his home despite this status reveals that the “deep state” is real. “So I blow the whistle on the FBI, get raided by the same FBI, and now they want to keep the FBI’s reasons secret? Do we now live in a secret police state? Feels a little like 1984,” Cain tweeted. Suspiciously, the raid happened just before former FBI Director James Comey, who oversaw this investigation, was slated to appear before closed-door meetings with Congress on this very topic. There’s still much more than meets the eye here, but we should assume precisely zero will be done about it in the new House of Representatives, which will be controlled by the Democrats.

Here’s more from Fox News…

A former FBI contractor-turned-whistleblower who supplied documents related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Uranium One controversy is blasting the FBI over a mysterious raid on his home last month.

Questioning whether “we now live in a secret police state,” Dennis Nathan Cain took his frustration to Twitter on the heels of a report that the Justice Department is trying to keep the justification for the raid secret.

“So I blow the whistle on the FBI, get raided by the same FBI, and now they want to keep the FBI’s reasons secret? Do we now live in a secret police state? Feels a little like 1984,” Cain tweeted late Monday, citing The Daily Caller report.
