Warren Culturally Appropriated Listed Heritage on State Bar Exam

By now you’ve probably seen Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren’s claim of American Indian heritage on her application for the State Bar of Texas. “Warren filled out the card by hand in neat blue ink and signed it,” The Washington Post reported. “Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.” WashPo further notes that the card “coincided with her first listing as a ‘minority’ by the Association of American Law Schools.” Exactly how this detail remained a secret since 1986 despite her tenure as a Senator suggests an inside job from the DNC. Apparently the powers that be want her out of the picture. But it should be clear Fauxcahontas had already damaged herself beyond repair. This will probably be the nail in her electoral coffin.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) claimed American Indian ancestry in her application for the State Bar of Texas, according to a new report documenting the previously undisclosed example of Warren claiming American Indian ancestry.

The Post notes that this latest revelation is likely to cause problems for Warren because Democrats “want a nominee who can move beyond any problems in their past and present a strong challenge to President Trump.”

“The Texas bar registration card is significant, among other reasons, because it removes any doubt that Warren directly claimed the identity,” the Post added. “In other instances, Warren has declined to say whether she or an assistant filled out forms.”

Senate Dems Block Bill to Protect Babies Surviving Abortion

As if the Democrats’ agenda weren’t already approaching the worship of Moloch, Senate Democrats have blocked legislation to protect babies surviving abortion procedures. Led by Washington Senator Patty Murray, Democrats in the upper chamber blocked the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act (S.130), which would require that babies born alive during abortion receive reasonable medical care and transportation to a hospital. Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE), who sponsored the bill, asked his colleagues to pass the bill by unanimous consent. It was blocked instead without even getting a vote. “Senate Democrats had the chance today to prove they are not the party of infanticide and instead they doubled down on extremism,” blasted Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser. Democrats: because infanticide is just peachy.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Senate Democrats – led by Washington Sen. Patty Murray – blocked a bill that would require babies born alive during abortion to receive reasonable medical care and transport to a hospital.

Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130) to protect babies who have survived failed abortions. Sasse went to the floor of the Senate Monday to ask his colleagues to pass the bill by unanimous consent, but Democrats objected.

Referencing the recent firestorm created by the Virginia bill known as the Repeal Act, introduced by Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran and supported by Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, Sasse said:

This place fancies itself the world’s greatest deliberative body, but we would be deceiving ourselves if we ignored the biggest debate that’s been happening in America over the last 36 hours.

Kamala Harris: 20-Week Abortion Ban “Immoral”

California Senator Kamala Harris (D) is adding to her far Left 2020 presidential campaign platform. The former prosecutor now wants healthcare for all… so long as it’s before 20 weeks gestation. In the wake of the third trimester abortion “reproductive justice” wave sweeping the nation, Harris contends that banning abortions at five months into a pregnancy is “immoral.” Harris tweeted: “The GOP has scheduled a vote on a 20-week abortion ban on Monday. Add your name to demand Congress votes down this immoral bill.” Memo to Harris: Does not a 20-week beating heart also deserve healthcare?

Here’s more from The Blaze…

Harris’ vision for the country is “frightening” to anyone who is not a socialist. Harris wants to implement her vision of socialized / single payer health care, she wants government funded abortions, she would abolish ICE, and her plan would offer free college to everyone.

In a tweet, Harris called a ban on abortion after 20 weeks “immoral.”

Cory “Spartacus” Booker Launches 2020 Bid

New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker threw his hat into the already crowded ring on Friday to challenge President Trump for the White House in 2020. Booker, who gained special notoriety for his “Spartacus” self-comparison during his defamation of now confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, is calling for Americans to unite behind him. In an obvious jab at President Trump, Booker argued that he envisions a country “where our criminal justice system keeps us safe instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame.” So many words with so little meaning. Thanks, Sparky.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Calling for a sense of common purpose, Sen. Cory Booker on Friday morning declared his candidacy for president.

The high-profile Democrat from New Jersey announced his White House run with a new website and a tweet featuring a two-minute-long campaign launch video, as well as an email to supporters.

“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good-paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood,” Booker said in the video.

The former mayor of Newark, known for his oratory skills, added that he envisions a country “where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame.”

Sasse Challenges Senate on Infanticide Support

Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) drew a big, fat red line on the floor of the U.S. Senate Thursday when he asked all 99 of his fellow senators to stand on the floor and state whether they are for or against infanticide. Sasse gave them heads up, saying: “On Monday, I’m going to ask all 100 Senators to come to the floor and be against infanticide. This shouldn’t be complicated.” Sasse is also taking concrete legislative steps to address the recent flurry of third-term and post-birth abortion legislation across America. He’s using Rule 14 to expedite consideration of his bill “the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.” Sasse is boldly calling for a vote to pass the bill with unanimous consent as soon as next week. This should smoke out some Democrats on the issue, particularly those running for president. Stay tuned…

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Thursday, speaking on the Senate floor, Senator Ben Sasse (R-NB) threw down the gauntlet to his 99 fellow senators, informing them, “On Monday, I’m going to ask all 100 senators to come to the floor and be against infanticide. This shouldn’t be complicated.”

As Alexandra DeSanctis reports at National Review, Sasse “announced that he is starting a dual-track process for the Senate to consider his legislation, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, in light of Virginia governor Ralph Northam’s recent comments about late-term abortion legislation in his state. Sasse is using the Rule 14 process to expedite consideration of the bill, as well as calling for a vote to pass the bill under unanimous consent on the Senate floor next week.”

Sasse quoted the incendiary comments made this week by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who intimated that even if a baby is born alive, a mother in his state could still opt to let the baby die. Sasse pointed out that Northam, despite huge outrage precipitated by his remarks, doubled down on Thursday.

Post-Birth Abortion Backlash Slams VA Governor Northam

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) is facing national fury after his comments supporting not only third-trimester abortions but POST-birth abortion went viral. Northam’s office is now pushing back on critics, claiming his comments supporting letting a newborn die in the name of “reproductive justice” were taken out of context. The key phrase of his interview was that abortions would be done with “the consent of obviously the mother, with consent of the physician, multiple physicians by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities or there may be a fetus that’s not viable.” Northam’s communications director has since retaliated, arguing that critics are “trying to play politics with women’s health.” Memo to Northam: words mean things. You should resign, sir.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam came under fire Wednesday after he waded into the fight over a controversial abortion bill that one sponsor said could allow women to terminate a pregnancy up until the moment before birth — with critics saying Northam indicated a child could be killed after birth.

Northam, whose office is now pushing back on those claims, appeared on WTOP to discuss The Repeal Act, which seeks to repeal restrictions on third-trimester abortions. Virginia Democratic Del. Kathy Tran, one of the sponsors, sparked outrage from conservatives when she was asked at a hearing if a woman about to give birth and dilating could still request an abortion. The bill was tabled in committee this week.

“My bill would allow that, yes,” she said.

Northam, a former pediatric neurologist, was asked about those comments and said he couldn’t speak for Tran, but said that third-trimester abortions are done with “the consent of obviously the mother, with consent of the physician, multiple physicians by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities or there may be a fetus that’s not viable.”

“Moderate” VA Governor Endorses Infanticide

Self-proclaimed “moderate” Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is paving the way for Medicare for all death panels to cut healthcare costs with his “pro-choice” stance that a woman who has just given birth gets to decide whether or not her newborn baby lives. During an Ask The Governor segment on WTOP, Northam endorsed proposed legislation from his party that would even allow a woman in labor to choose abortion. Of course, he couched his brazen eugenics in “sympathetic” terms, such as in the case of a newborn or an about to be born baby with “deformities.” Similar legislation has already passed in New York, and Rhode Island is considering following suit as well. All of which sets up a massive constitutional battle in the Supreme Court soon.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Wednesday, in a shocking revelation about the nature of the pro-abortion Democratic Party, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, a supposed moderate, endorsed the notion that a woman should be able to let an infant, born alive, die on the table if she decided she did not want the child.

Appearing on WTOP’s Ask The Governor, Northam was asked whether he supported a Virginia legislator’s statement that Virginia Democrats’ proposed legislation would permit abortion for a woman in labor. He stated:

This is why decisions such as this should be made by providers, physicians, and the mothers and fathers that are involved. When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of the mother, with the consent of physicians, more than one physician by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus which is non-viable.

“Furious” House Democrats Targeting AOC for Ousting

The GOP may not be taking Democratic socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seriously, but some on the Left are panicked and targeting “Sandy from the Bronx” for ousting in the next election. Democrats’ efforts to make AOC a “one-term congressperson” come in the wake of the nonconformist’s partnership with the Justice Democrats, a far Left group devoted to primarying establishment Democrats who-wait for it-are not liberal or “diverse” enough. AOC has yet to swallow House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s agenda like a good minion, and her partnership could effectively help President Trump divide and conquer the Democrats just in time for the 2020 elections. Let’s hope this is a trend. With the Left divided, 2020 could shape up to be a very good year.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Democratic socialist freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) has definitely made her presence known among her colleagues in her few short weeks on Capitol Hill — and that’s not entirely a good thing, according to recent reports.

After taking out an incumbent Democrat who many believed would follow Nancy Pelosi as Democratic House Speaker, Ocasio-Cortez has announced to the world that she has partnered with far-left progressive group Justice Democrats, whose sole focus is primarying establishment Democrats who aren’t sufficiently liberal or “representative” of the Democrats’ increasingly “diverse” base.

“We as Justice Democrats have the chance to really transform the Democratic Party running in competitive primary elections in Democratic-held seats,” one of the group’s leaders said in a recent promotional video for their campaign to primary Democrat incumbents (video below). “One of the important things that gets told in order to like settle us down is, ‘I agree with you. We have the same goals,”’ Ocasio-Cortez added.

Ex-Starbucks CEO Could Split Left’s 2020 Vote

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz could be just the spoiler President Trump has been dreaming of. Instead of competing in an already crowded Left wing field, the social liberal may run as an Independent, splitting the vote in favor of Trump. During a 60 Minutes interview, Schultz did not officially announce a campaign, but his noncommitment was enough to panic top Democratic and Never Trump operatives. If he pulls the trigger, the us vs. them election becomes a referendum on both political parties rather than on just President Trump. What’s most interesting is that Schultz, a liberal’s liberal, would be running to the right of the current crop of Democratic candidates Harris, Gillibrand, Booker, O’Rourke, Warren, and Sanders. This could get fun.

Here’s more from The Atlantic…

Before there was Jill Stein, there was Ralph Nader. Before there was Nader, there was Ross Perot.

None won. All argued that the Republican Party and the Democratic Party were basically the same, and the only way to make real change was to ditch them both. Each was blamed for siphoning off enough votes to throw the presidential elections.

These days, the difference between the parties is starker than it’s ever been in modern times. Yet here comes Howard Schultz, a billionaire who feels that he might be the answer to American politics, and that he’d run for president as an independent.

Iran Nuclear Chief Confirms Iran Violated Nuke Deal

Surprising precisely no one, Ali Akbar Salehi, Iran’s nuclear chief, confirmed on Iranian state media that the terrorist state flagrantly violated Barack Obama’s “nuclear deal,” even using Photoshop to fudge the evidence. According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translation of the report, this was accomplished by secretly buying replacements and using Photoshop to fake “proof” of destroyed infrastructure. Salehi, of course, spun the duplicity not as one of strategic necessity but rather that the evil United States would renege. “The leader warned us that they were violators of agreements,” Salehi said. “We had to act wisely. Not only did we avoid destroying the bridges that we had built, but we also built new bridges that would enable us to go back faster if needed.” Thanks for that strategic move, Barry!

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

In yet another confirmation of Iran’s blatant violation of the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which is committed to translating into English otherwise-hidden primary source material from the Arab and Muslim world, has reported that the terrorist regime in Tehran secretly purchased replacements for its nuclear infrastructure that the nuclear deal had otherwise required it to destroy. Per MEMRI:

Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, was interviewed on Channel 4 TV (Iran) on January 22, 2019. He said that the negotiations surrounding the JCPOA had required Iran to destroy the Arak reactor’s calandria by filling it with cement, but that Iran had secretly acquired replacement tubes ahead of time so that the reactor’s functionality would not be ultimately affected. He also said that pictures that had circulated that showed the Arak reactor’s pit filled with cement had been photoshopped.
