Trump Wins Again; German Company Won’t Supply Iran with Rocket Parts

In a story largely ignored by the Leftist media, the Trump administration has compelled German company Krempel to stop selling rocket parts to Iran. The move comes after U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell ratcheted up the diplomatic pressure after the company’s products were found to be used in Syria by President Bashar Assad working in cooperation with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps to wage chemical warfare against civilians. Krempel had previously doubled down on the legality of its business deals with Iran. This is one more example of American superiority and influence abroad that had been missing entirely during the Obama administration.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Thursday, in another victory for the Trump Administration, the German company Krempel, whose material was utilized in Iranian rockets that forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad used to gas 21 adults and children, announced it would not deliver material to the Iranian government any more.

As The Jerusalem Post notes, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell has been instrumental in convincing German companies to follow Trump’s lead and separate from Iran. He stated, “Corporations realize that doing business with Iran means funding the IRGC’s terror strategy.”

Krempel spokesman Rainer Westermann said, “Since several months ago, Krempel no longer delivers goods to Iran.” Krempel makes electronic press boards used in the motors of rockets.

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.

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.”

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.”

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.
