Pro-2A Student Doxxed for Pro-Gun Graduation Pics

Brenna Spencer gained viral social media infamy after her graduation picture last spring that sported not only a “Women for Trump” tee but also a handgun in her waistband. Since then the 22-year-old graduate of the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga has received death threats and calls for her to commit suicide in the wake of the tweet, which showed up on nearly 20 million Twitter feeds. Spencer has also been the victim of cyberstalking after her address was posted on social media. To her credit, rather than being scared into silence, Spencer is now working with a nonprofit in Tennessee dedicated to educating students on gun rights and concealed carry.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

When Brenna Spencer posted her graduation photos on Twitter back in April, she posed wearing a hot pink “Women for Trump” shirt and a black handgun tucked into her skinny jeans.

“I don’t take normal graduation photos….” tweeted Spencer, a graduate of the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga who now lives in Nashville.

Spencer, now 22, told PJ Media that she posted the photo “to bring awareness of how important it is to protect yourself, especially for women.”

NJ First Sanctuary State by Fiat?

On the heels of New Jersey’s state attorney issuing a directive prohibiting local or state police from cooperating with ICE or inquiring about immigration status while on the job, Democratic State Senator Joseph Vitale is proposing driver’s licenses for illegals. Why? Because they are already on the road illegally and Vitale’s logic is that two wrongs make a right. New Jersey Assemblyman Parker Space swiftly pushed back against the plan, calling it “an insult to every hard-working citizen who plays by the rules.” According to David Jaroslav of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, it “appears to be the first case of a state being made into a sanctuary for illegal aliens by the unilateral executive action of a non-election official.” Indeed!

Here’s more from PJ Media…

New Jersey Assemblyman Parker Space said the state’s attorney general did nothing but create a “protected class of citizen” by issuing a new directive that stops local or state cops cooperating with ICE or even asking people about their immigration status.

“It is an insult to every hard-working citizen who plays by the rules that the state will let some crimes go for illegal immigrants just to protect them from immigration officials,” said Space.

And once they are in New Jersey, protected from local, state, and federal law enforcement, Democratic state Sen. Joseph Vitale wants to make sure illegal immigrants have a driver’s license.

“We can’t ignore the reality that undocumented immigrants are on the roads now, going to work, driving their children to school and doing the routine activities that all families do,” said Vitale.

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!

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

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.

Border Patrol Snags More MS-13 and Sex Offenders Seeking ‘Asylum’

U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed the arrest of two more members of MS-13 and two convicted (and previously deported) sex offenders attempting to cross into the US from Mexico. Per the DailyWire, all four men were arrested in separate instances and all four had previous run-ins with border patrol. Their liberal and libertarian defenders underscored that they only constitute an estimated 0.1 percent of “asylum seekers” actually caught at the border. But that fails to mitigate the threat coming to neighborhoods across America if the border is not secured against them and immigration laws enforced. That aside, isn’t just one murderous, drug-running thug too many?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

United States Customs and Border Protection say they have arrested at least two more members of the notorious MS-13 gang, and two convicted — and previously deported — sex offenders trying to cross the United States-Mexico border.

The Daily Mail reports that CBP apprehended the four men in four separate incidents ranging across the southern border from Arizona to Texas. All four had had previous run-ins with border patrol.

“On Wednesday, agents arrested a 46-year-old Mexican national, after he illegally entered the U.S. near Lukeville,” the Mail reported. “During processing, agents discovered he was convicted in 2002 of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in Mesa, Arizona.”

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.”

CNN Analyst on 2020: “I Am Not Sure it’s the Time to Nominate a White Man”

And he’s likely right. Harry Enten, well known as an election prognosticator, made clear the precarious optics for the left in picking a candidate for the 2020 presidential election. HotAir.com pointed out rightly, “The last white male Democrat to win a majority of the popular vote was, er, Jimmy Carter, who got 50.1 percent.” The last landslide? LBJ in 1964. The Democrats may be forced to nominate a woman, but the downside is that she will almost certainly be a hard leftist.

Here’s more from Hot Air…

It’s Harry Enten, a smart guy whose statistical pieces on elections for FiveThirtyEight and CNN I’ve linked many times. This segment has caught the attention of, among others, Newsweek, Breitbart, and Mediaite, where Colby Hall writes of Enten, “he likely is about to get some unwanted attention from conservatives and Men’s Rights activists who will take issue with his assessment of who will be the most electable Democratic candidates in the 2020 race for the White House.”

Here’s Newsweek’s transcript of what Enten had to say in his “power rankings” segment for CNN today. Show of hands — and hold them high, because I want to know where the idiots are: Who doesn’t think this is an accurate assessment of the racial dynamics in the coming Democratic primary?

“If you want to win in the Midwest, there may not be a better man than this guy,” Enten said while talking about Senator Sherrod Brown, noting the Ohio legislator’s success as Republicans dominated in the state’s other races.

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.

Abuse Investigation Hits Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Uber lefty and global warming hysteria officianado Neil DeGrasse Tyson is under a little heat of his own after BuzzFeed released details of a “year’s-long investigation” into multiple claims of harassment and misconduct of a nefarious nature. In this present #metoo era, it’s still clear that no one, left or right, is immune from the fallout, and now that trend appears to be claiming yet another victim on the left. The question now is whether the left will come to the defense of a favorite minority son or side with its female contingent. Regardless, what’s clear is that the left is having a difficult time devouring its own.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

BuzzFeed News revealed in a report Wednesday that it has been looking into sexual misconduct allegations against Neil deGrasse Tyson for “nearly three years.” After a fourth woman came forward to level allegations against the famed astrophysicist, the outlet has now presented its findings.

“Over the course of nearly three years, BuzzFeed News has spoken with more than 30 people for this story, including the alleged victims and their families, Cosmos crew members, and graduate students and professors who were at UT Austin 30 years ago. Dozens more from that time did not reply to requests for interviews,” BuzzFeed’s Azeen Ghorayshi reports.

“Most of the people interviewed lamented the prospect that damaging allegations might take down the world’s most famous living scientist — and perhaps the most famous black scientist in history — beloved for eviscerating so many of the stereotypes of the stuffy, out-of-touch academic,” she adds.

Discredited “Climate Scientist” Teams Up With Soros

Breitbart News reports how “discredited ‘climate scientist’ and fake Nobel prize winner” Michael “Hockey Stick” Mann is teaming up with the Soros-funded global warming propaganda platform DeSmogblog to get ahead of the scandal. In essence, Mann is attempting to use select emails and claims of transparency to ward off further investigation into the $1.5 trillion Climate Industrial Complex, complete with its data deception and methodological manipulations. One such example showcases alarm over a failure of evidence to correlate the “man-made” global warming theory… back in 2000. The global warming hysteria cabal is alive and well.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Who wants to rummage through Michael “Hockey Stick” Mann’s dirty laundry?
The discredited “climate scientist” and fake Nobel-prizewinner has released a batch of his old emails, which you can access here.

Mann gives a defiant account of his decision at the Soros-funded global warming propaganda site DeSmogblog.

By releasing his emails, Mann claims, he will be:

(a) using these emails to show how scientists are making an honest and diligent effort to understand the science underlying Earth’s climate system,

(b) showing how scientists are engaged in the good-faith give-and-take that is central to the scientific enterprise, which includes appropriate skepticism and critical assessment not only of other scientists’ work but our own, as evident through internal deliberations between the scientists, and

(c) demonstrating the understandable frustration that scientists have with those who intentionally misrepresent them and their research for the purpose of advancing an ideological agenda.

Path to Victory to Defund Planned Parenthood

In an effort to get ahead of the now progressive Democratic House rising in January, national pro-life organizations joined Trump administration officials at the White House to battle for defunding Planned Parenthood regardless of who controls the U.S. House in the New Year. Planned Parenthood receives more than $500 million in annual taxpayer funding and is the nation’s largest abortion provider, killing 900 preborn children per day according to Live Action president Lila Rose. Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins presented five ways the Trump administration can help talk down the abortion giant: refuse to sign any budget funding for Planned Parenthood, assert the Protect Life rule in Title X regulations, appoint life-affirming judges, end fetal tissue research, and keep Planned Parenthood out of sex education and family planning programs.

National pro-life organizations met with Trump administration officials at the White House Wednesday to clear a path to defund Planned Parenthood, even with pro-abortion Democrats poised to take the reins of the U.S. House in January.
Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins, Live Action president Lila Rose, and representatives from the March for Life and the Susan B. Anthony List met with Trump administration officials.

While the pro-life activists acknowledge the administration has fulfilled some of President Donald Trump’s promises to them, Planned Parenthood – the nation’s largest provider of abortions – remains the recipient of more than $500 million in annual taxpayer funding.

“Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion chain in the U.S. and, while receiving taxpayer funds, daily profits from the deaths of 900 preborn children killed in its facilities,” said Rose in a statement sent to Breitbart News.
