Another Win For Gays For Trump! Log Cabin Republicans Endorses President Trump for Reelection in 2020 Washington, D.C. – Log Cabin Republicans (LCR), the nation’s oldest and largest organization of conservative LGBTQ Republicans and their allies, announces its endorsement of Donald J. Trump for reelection for President of the United States in 2020. After consulting […]
Trump’s FCC order could make social media stabilized for Conservatives. The White House wants the U.S. government to have a much bigger say in what you see on social media. The move presumably has something to do with Trump’s view that social media companies show a systemic bias against conservatives. According to the summary, the Trump administration […]
CHIK-FIL-A COWS GO TO WAR AGAINST GREEN NEW DEAL The beloved semi-literate cows of Chik-fil-A marketing have already come out against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s Green New Deal, which aims at a reduction of bovine flatulence through a special Cow-Fart Police Task Force. Now they have ratcheted up the rhetoric and gone to war with an ad […]
“By suspending me for telling the truth, Twitter is making it clear that they seek to control the news media and only allow content on their platform that does not expose the evil, projection, and hypocrisy of the political Left,” Saavedra wrote. “Do not be surprised if they permanently ban me.”But another Twitter user who posted the video, The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra, said Twitter simply does not want the “Left’s pure hatred exposed because it damages the narrative that many at Twitter have.”The situation quickly spiraled. The Daily Beast posted a tweet claiming that McConnel’s campaign had “essentially” told Ocasio-Cortez that “boys will be boys” — prompting Ocasio-Cortez, and later Newsweek, to falsely imply that McConnell’s campaign had, in fact, used that phrase.After Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet, McConnell’s campaign responded by distancing itself from the photo, clarifying that the boys weren’t employees of the campaign. “Team Mitch in no way condones any aggressive, suggestive, or demeaning act toward life-sized cardboard cutouts of any gender,” campaign spokesman Kevin Golden said, according to the New York Post.Former McConnell aide and political commentator Scott Jennings also called the situation inexplicable.”Just stab the m—– f—– in the heart,” Helm said, after a fellow demonstrator referenced a McConnell voodoo doll.
“It is outrageous for the politicians to just sit back and hope this goes away,” Kasich said, pushing the media to maintain the discussion as well. Keeping the pressure on both parties is Kasich’s suggestion for making sure Congress addresses gun violence with action.Kasich touted a “red flag law,” which would allow people to alert authorities if they notice a social media post that might indicate that a person is unstable. It would then be up to a judge to decide what to do, as far as limiting that person’s ability to possess a firearm.TIM RYAN CALLS FOR PASSAGE OF BACKGROUND CHECK BILL, BAN ON ASSAULT WEAPONS FOLLOWING ATTACKS IN EL PASO AND DAYTONIn the past, Democrats and media pundits have responded to shootings by calling for stricter gun laws, but Washington lawmakers have not passed legislation in recent years.”You know how many Democrats run for the fences whenever this comes up? They don’t want to deal with this either,” Kasich told CNN’s Jake Tapper.Kasich acknowledged that Congress is unable to prevent all gun violence, but insisted that “small steps can be very helpful.”While Democrats have accused President Trump of inspiring race-based attacks, and have blamed Republicans for failing to pass gun control legislation, Kasich said the Democrats themselves are by no means in the clear.”They can all be blamed for this,” he added. “We need leadership at all levels of both parties.”MULVANEY ON MASS SHOOTINGS: ‘I DON’T THINK IT’S FAIR TO LAY THIS AT THE FEET OF THE PRESIDENT”You want to pass gun control legislation? People need to start marching,” he said.Former Ohio Governor John Kasich took members of both parties to task on Sunday for failing to take action to prevent mass shootings such as the ones that hit his home state in the city of Dayton, as well as El Paso, Texas this weekend.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP
“The House passed HR8, a Bipartisan Background Checks Act, *5 months ago* and the Senate has yet to vote on it,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response to McConnell’s own tweet. “It was one of our 1st major priorities after ending the gov shutdown. You’ve been sitting on it since February giving bogus excuses. Care to explain the people why?”POLITICIANS RESPOND TO SHOOTING AT WALMART IN EL PASOIn the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., for failing to call a vote on a gun reform bill that the Democratically-controlled House of Representatives passed in February. McConnell tweeted on Saturday that he and the country were “horrified” by the “senseless violence” in El Paso, where a lone gunman opened fire inside a Walmart and left at least 20 people dead and dozens more wounded. Following McConnell’s tweet, another gunman attacked a popular nightlife district in Dayton in the early hours of Sunday morning. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP“Mitch McConnell should bring the Senate back into session immediately to pass HR 8, the gun safety bill that has already passed the House,” Sanders tweeted. “That’s a first step to addressing our serious gun violence epidemic.”The measure, HR 8, was passed back in February with overwhelming support from the newly elected Democratic majority and some Republican support. Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t the only lawmaker to call on McConnell to bring the resolution to a vote in the Senate. Ocasio-Cortez called out McConnell in a tweet on Sunday for “giving bogus excuses” as to why the Senate hasn’t taken up the measure passed in the House that would tighten background checks for people seeking to purchase a firearm.Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, a leading candidate in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, and Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, also demanded that McConnell call the Senate back into session and take up a vote of the resolution.
“God bless the people of El Paso Texas,” Trump said. “God bless the people of Dayton, Ohio.”“We need to acknowledge that this is a problem.” Buttigieg said, claiming that white nationalism has been “condoned at the highest levels” in Washington.Separately on Sunday, Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg pointed specifically to “weak gun safety” measures and white nationalism as the culprits, after the El Paso shooter was linked to anti-Mexican statements.In January, Trump wrote on Twitter, “Humanitarian Crisis at our Southern Border. I just got back and it is a far worse situation than almost anyone would understand, an invasion!”And at the White House in March, Trump remarked, “Last month, more than 76,000 illegal migrants arrived at our border. We’re on track for a million illegal aliens to rush our borders. People hate the word ‘invasion,’ but that’s what it is. It’s an invasion of drugs and criminals and people. You have no idea who they are.”CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APPMulvaney continued: “I don’t think it’s fair to try and lay this at the feet of the president. There are people in this country this morning thinking that President Trump was happy by this. That’s a sad, sad state of this nation. He’s angry. He’s upset. He wants it to stop. I don’t think it’s at all fair to sit here and say that he doesn’t think that white nationalism is bad for the nation. These are sick people. You cannot be a white supremacist and be normal in the head.”WATCH: U.S. ATTORNEY WEIGHING DEATH PENALTY IN EL PASO SHOOTINGAfter the New Zealand mosque shootings in March, Trump was asked whether white nationalism was “rising threat around the world.” The president responded: “I don’t. I don’t really. It’s a small group of people…But it is a terrible thing.”FOX NEWS REPORTER GIVES EMOTIONAL ACCOUNT OF VICTIM SAYING HIS MOTHER IS DEAD”At the same time, as our national leader, you have a role to play in either fanning the flames of division or trying to bring Americans of different backgrounds together,” Castro told Karl. “Most presidents have chosen to try and bring people together. This president very early on made a clear choice to divide people for his own political benefit. And these are some of the consequences that we’re seeing of that.”“Right now you see it being echoed by the White House and there is a measure of responsibility that you just can’t get away from,” he said. Buttigieg cited President Trump’s comment that there were “very fine people” on both sides after a deadly attack at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.Asked about the March interaction, Mulvaney said Trump has been misinterpreted.”I don’t believe that’s downplaying it, look at what he said,” Mulvaney said. “Look, this is not the same as international nuclear weapons. This is a serious problem, there’s no question about it. But they are sick, sick people and the president knows that.”At the same time, Castro told ABC News’ “This Week,” Trump has embraced “division and bigotry and fanning the flames of hate” as a form of “political strategy.”Castro, speaking to anchor Jonathan Karl, said that only the shooter bears “direct” responsibility. (In a statement released later Sunday, Castro echoed that comment, saying, “These shooters are ultimately to blame for their actions. They are attempting to terrorize us but I believe that the vast majority of Americans reject this hatred.”)Fox News’ Ronn Blitzer contributed to this report.Shortly after Beto O’Rourke claimed Sunday that President Trump’s “racism” is what “leads to” violent shootings, another Democratic presidential contender, Julian Castro said “there’s one person that’s responsible directly” for Saturday’s deadly mass shooting in El Paso, Texas — “and that’s the shooter.”Responding directly to Mulvaney’s comments, Castro told Karl, “You know, it’s so unfortunate that not only our president, but his administration can’t rise up to the challenge of leadership in these times.”Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney denied earlier on “This Week” that Trump had “downplayed” the threat of white nationalism.Trump condemned the El Paso shooting early Sunday morning, calling it “hateful” and “an act of cowardice.”“This is terrorism and we have to name it as such,” Buttigieg said, specifically calling it “white nationalist terrorism” in a conversation with host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.””It’s no accident that, just a few weeks after he announced his 2020 reelection bid, there he was indulging and entertaining this ‘Send her back’ chant,” Castro said. “And he’s spoken about immigrants as being invaders. “He’s given license for this toxic brew of white supremacy to fester more and more in this country. And we’re seeing the results of that.”TRUMP, 2020 DEMS CONDEMN EL PASO MASS SHOOTING: ‘ACT OF COWARDICE’
Ryan, a congressman from Ohio, was speaking on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” just hours after a gunman in his home state left nine people dead and dozens more injured when he opened fire on the streets of downtown Dayton’s popular Oregon District. It was the second mass shooting in the country in less than 24 hours, following an attack by a gunman in an El Paso, Texas, Walmart that killed 20 people and left scores injured there.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APPRyan lumped much of the blame for the shootings on President Trump and the “environment the president has created in the United States.”2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate Tim Ryan on Sunday called on Congress to immediately head back to session to pass a background check bill for those seeking to buy firearms and called for a ban on the purchase of assault weapons. Ryan is one of a number of Democratic presidential hopefuls who have singled out Trump’s divisive rhetoric and tough stance on issues like immigration as part of the reason why these recent mass shootings have occurred. “This is ridiculous,” he said. “ Honestly for a guy to drive 10 hours to go kill Mexicans like what happened in El Paso is sickening and I think the environment around anti-immigration, the race issues that are so polarizing today that the president throws gasoline on has got to stop.”POLITICIANS RESPOND TO SHOOTING AT WALMART IN EL PASOBeto O’Rourke, a former Texas congressman whose district includes El Paso, said earlier on Sunday that he believes Trump is a white nationalist and likened the president’s language to that of Nazi Germany’s “Third Reich.”Ryan added: We’ve got to bring this country together, we’ve got to heal and it’s got to start at the top. The president needs to take a leadership role in this, he’s got to stop being so divisive, he’s got to stop tipping his hat to the white nationalists, and sometimes overtly to them, to where he’s talking to some crazy guy who’s going to drive 10 hours to shoot Mexicans.””This cannot be open for debate and you, as well as I, have a responsibility to call that out to make sure the American people know what is being done in their name,” O’Rourke added. “He doesn’t even pretend to respect our differences or understand we are all created equal. He is saying some people are inherently defected.””Let’s be very clear about what is causing this and who the president is,” O’Rourke said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “He is an open avowed racist and encouraging more racism in this country.”“We’ve got to do something,” Ryan said. “I’m calling on the president and the Congress to come back in session…let’s do the work in Washington. Do the background check bill that we passed out of the House. We’ve got to ban these assault weapons.”
CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP“It’s the pattern of abuses of his office as president that is accumulating, in my view, to a strong basis for formal impeachment proceedings beyond what various House committees are already conducting by way of investigating possible Articles of Impeachment,” he said.Tribe subsequently clarified by saying that he is not saying that Trump “should be impeached” for “racist incitements alone,” rather that “impeaching the president for inciting white nationalist terrorism and violence [should be] taken as seriously as impeaching him for obstructing justice.”Tribe first promoted discussion of impeaching Trump for inciting violent acts, then took it a step further and outright accused the president of the United States of terrorism.DERSHOWITZ, TRIBE SPAR OVER IMPEACHMENT: YOU’D HAVE ‘GONE APOPLECTIC’ IF CLINTONS RECEIVED SAME TREATMENT”How many more people have to DIE violent deaths at racist hands before impeaching the president for inciting white nationalist terrorism and violence is taken as seriously as impeaching him for obstructing justice? The real national emergency is Donald J. Trump’s terrorism,” Tribe tweeted Sunday morning.In May, the constitutional law professor drew attention for comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler, saying, “the physical and behavioral resemblances aren’t altogether irrelevant.” In 2018, he focused a Constitutional Law course he was teaching on Trump and his hypothetical impeachment.BETO O’ROURKE SAYS TRUMP’S RHETORIC IN PART TO BLAME FOR EL PASO MASS SHOOTINGWhen asked for an explanation by Fox News, Tribe did not go into any legal analysis, but said, “There is an alarming pattern of incitements that together warrant being taken seriously in conjunction with other, more specific, offenses.”Democrats such as presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg and Beto O’Rourke accused Trump of encouraging racism, but Tribe went so far as to imply that the president may have committed high crimes or misdemeanors and should be removed from office for taking an active role in supporting racist violence.The professor included a link to a video of a Trump rally, which was meant to be an example. In it, the president was discussing migrant caravans. Trump asked what to do, and someone in the crowd yelled, “Shoot them!” Trump shook his head, then joked, “Only in the panhandle you can get away with that statement.” Immediately prior to the person’s outburst, Trump noted that “we can’t let [border patrol agents] use weapons. Other countries do, I would never do that.”Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe has a history of passionate opposition to President Trump and calling for his impeachment, and he continued the trend Sunday by blaming Trump for a pair of shootings that took place over the weekend in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.The video had been posted as a reply to Tribe’s tweet, but has since been removed.
And he deployed a trendy put-down to call out Meadows for committing the social media sin of not tagging him: “@ me next time, bruh.”Fox News’ Brooke Singman and Jake Gibson contributed to this report.Comey, during June 2017 testimony, said he deliberately leaked a memo in order to prompt the appointment of a special counsel.It remains unclear how tough the IG report will be on Comey, but the review pertains to memos he wrote memorializing his interactions with President Trump in the days leading up to his firing. He then passed those documents to a friend, Columbia University Law Professor Daniel Richman, who gave them to The New York Times. Comey admitted to that arrangement during congressional testimony.The report related to Comey’s leaks is separate from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s review of alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APPDOJ WILL NOT PROSECUTE COMEY FOR LEAKING MEMOS: SOURCESThe light-hearted feud belies the apparent severity of the Justice Department inspector general’s investigation. Officials confirmed Thursday that following a referral from the IG, the department has decided against prosecuting Comey for leaking classified information.“As the IG report on Comey approaches, we’re getting the sound of silence. No Comey tweets. No softball interviews,” he tweeted. “Must be tougher when you get questioned by a DOJ Inspector General. The truth is coming. His actions will come to light. And the verdict won’t be pretty.”After the fact, the FBI classified two of those memos as “confidential.”James Comey tangled with Rep. Mark Meadows in the Twitter arena overnight after the Republican congressman accused the feisty former FBI director of going silent ahead of the release of what could be a damaging inspector general report.“I didn’t consider it part of an FBI file,” Comey told Fox News’ Bret Baier last year. “It was my personal aide-memoire…I always thought of it as mine.”FBI AGENTS RETRIEVED MEMOS FROM COMEY’S HOUSEComey hit back, tweeting that he’s simply waiting “for facts” before speaking publicly and suggesting he’s not concerned – before calling out Meadows for not following the Twitter code of honor:Comey, whom Trump fired in May 2017, denied that sharing the memos with his legal team constituted a leak of classified information. Instead, he compared the process to keeping “a diary.”On May 17, Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel to lead the Russia investigation.But Fox News is told the release of Horowitz’s report is “imminent.” And Meadows, R-N.C., entered the fray by suggesting the report will contain damaging details for Comey. The New York Times published the report with Comey’s memos on May 16, 2017, revealing the contents of the memo which said the president asked him to shut down the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn in an Oval Office meeting.“I love transparency. I just wait for facts before I talk about them. I’m confident the results of all IG reports will show honest public servants worked hard to protect this country from a threat this president and his enablers won’t acknowledge. And @ me next time, bruh.”
