AOC Abandons Truth in Favor of Illegal Immigration

Triggered by President Trump’s Tuesday night immigration address, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) appeared on MSNBC with Rachel Maddow and promptly went off the rails to defend the Left’s open borders agenda. Some of her most notable comments included these gems: “Every day immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than everyday Americans” and that the illegal immigrant caravan posted up at our Southern border “are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be.” AOC also doubled down on her previous claims that President Trump is racist. Her remarks were made, somewhat ironically, after she appeared on CBS’ “60 Minutes” to explain that truth is an acceptable casualty in the pursuit of moral superiority.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Tuesday night, after President Trump delivered his address to the nation regarding immigration, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) appeared on MSNBC with host Rachel Maddow, and proceeded to make some of the wildest statements of her neophyte career, including, “Every day immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than everyday Americans,” that illegal immigrants on the border “are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be,” that President Trump has a “proven track record of discrimination against anybody who’s really non-white in the United States, and that Trump assumed the office of the presidency with his “racist and violent rhetoric.”

Maddow began by asking Ocasio-Cortez to comment on Trump’s remarks, prompting the first of Ocasio-Cortez’s rants, as she bloviated:

I cannot tell you the amount of dysfunction that this president is advancing. We have now over 100 new members of this freshman class.

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.”

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.”

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.

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.”

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.

De Niro Blasts “Jerkoff” Trump

Has-been thespian Robert De Niro is selling off his celebrity career on the anti-Trump bandwagon with yet another epithet for President Trump. After referring to Trump as a “jerkoff,” he hyped up his audience of Hollywood elites with this humdinger: “Down with this motherf*cker.” De Niro made the remarks while presenting comedian Billy Crystal the Friars Club’s entertainment icon award. Showing just how tone-deaf he is, De Niro called for a “heroic comedian-in-chief” in the Oval Office. We think reelection in 2020 will give Trump the last laugh.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

It might be time for Robert De Niro to think about attending an anger management class.

The once-great actor just can’t seem to wrap his head around the fact that Donald Trump won the presidency, even though it’s been nearly 800 days since Election Day 2016.

The “Raging Bull” star went on another profanity-laced tirade, this time while presenting comedian Billy Crystal the Friars Club’s entertainment icon award, according to Variety.

“De Niro first shouted, ‘F— Crystal!’ as a wink to his condemnation of Trump at the Tony Awards earlier this year. ‘I just get so upset with that jerkoff in the White House,’ he said, drawing boos from the crowd. ‘Boo is right! Down with this motherf—er!'”

De Niro also said he thinks Crystal should consider running for president. “We’ve got a dangerous buffoon-in-chief. What we need is a heroic comedian-in-chief,” he said.

Acosta Acosts Girl, Loses Press Pass

CNN’s Jim Acosta finally crossed the red line of tolerance for his obnoxious White House press room antics, losing his “hard pass” access as a result. As any irrational adult does, Acosta took to Twitter to whine about it: “I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.” He forgot to mention that he was ejected for “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern,” per White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. Where’s the cheer of support from the media for President Trump’s zero tolerance of Acosta’s manhandling of a young female intern?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

The United States Secret Service took away CNN’s Jim Acosta’s “hard pass” late on Wednesday after the professional provocateur pulled another obnoxious stunt during a White House press conference.

“I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit,” Acosta wrote on Twitter.

“President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a tweet. “We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.”

Gingrich: Media Earned “Enemy of the People” Moniker

In an interview with Axios in the wake of the serial pipe bombs mailed to high-profile Democrats, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich called out the media as “the enemy of the people.” After news of the many pipe bombs mailed to several Democrats around the country, the media was quick to seize on the debacle as an opportunity to put the blame squarely on President Trump. The media is doing its level best to unite Republicans just days before the midterm elections in which – if polls remain steady – could be a historic victory for Trump and the GOP.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Thursday that the media have “earned” President Trump’s label of “the enemy of the people.”

Gingrich told Axios that Trump’s rhetoric against the media has helped deepen the partisan divide, but “they’ve earned it.”

Gingrich made similar comments to TMZ. They come a day after several top Democrats and CNN, all of whom have been critical of Trump, were mailed explosive devices.

“Look, I don’t think there’s a direct relationship of any kind,” Gingrich said of Trump’s attacks on his critics, adding that the people who were targeted have “been very hostile to conservatism.”

On Wednesday, Gingrich said anyone behind the bomb threats should “be locked up for the longest possible time as a signal that we will not tolerate threats to anyone.”

Google: Time to Kill Free Speech

According to an 85-page internal company briefing fittingly titled “The Good Censor,” the American tradition of free speech is not an option. In the briefing, Google acknowledges that it and other Silicon Valley platforms “control the majority of online conversations” and have actively taken a “shift towards censorship” in the wake of the 2016 presidential election and the rise of the political right in Europe. Google has since tried to play it off as internal research and not an official company position…you know, like it’s official company policy to not censor conservatives. We’ll take this an admission of guilt.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

An internal company briefing produced by Google and leaked exclusively to Breitbart News argues that due to a variety of factors, including the election of President Trump, the “American tradition” of free speech on the internet is no longer viable.

Despite leaked video footage showing top executives declaring their intention to ensure that the rise of Trump and the populist movement is just a “blip” in history, Google has repeatedly denied that the political bias of its employees filter into its products.

But the 85-page briefing, titled “The Good Censor,” admits that Google and other tech platforms now “control the majority of online conversations” and have undertaken a “shift towards censorship” in response to unwelcome political events around the world.

Examples cited in the document include the 2016 election and the rise of Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) in Germany.

Responding to the leak, an official Google source said the document should be considered internal research, and not an official company position.
