AOC Wages War on “Colonial” Cauliflower

First, it was cow farts. Now, it’s cauliflower, arguably the least exciting vegetable ever, that made the cut to be on socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (NY) sh*tlist, in this case as a presumably racist colonial green space usurper. During a livestream, she rambled on about composting (because a girl from the Bronx is an expert on this) only to unleash a total gem: “[W]hen someone says that it’s too hard to do a green space that grows yucca instead of, I don’t know, cauliflower or something, what you’re doing is that you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism.” She went on to use this as the basis of “why a lot of communities of color get resistant to certain environmentalist movements because they come with the colonial lens on them.”

Here’s more from National Review…

A few weeks ago, I noted that Louisiana’s state legislature is contemplating legislation that would bar makers of cauliflower rice from labeling their product “rice,” contending that consumers will get confused. Instead, the rice growers want the product to be labeled . . . “riced cauliflower.”

But Louisiana isn’t the only spot where cauliflower is under fire. In a stream-of-consciousness discussion of composting, the Green New Deal, and community gardens, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lamented cauliflower as symbol of colonialism.

“Looks like they’ve got composting going on, which is so awesome, too, because composting is really hard to do in a neighborhood like this. We just don’t have the pick ups and the ease of it that a lot of other communities have.

Poll: 2-in-3 Americans Oppose “Catch-and-Release”

The latest Harvid/Harris Poll confirms that a clear majority of Americans reject releasing illegal immigrants into the interior of the United States to await their asylum court hearings. Instead, 2-in-3 Americans think self-proclaimed asylum seekers should be immediately turned back to their country of origin to await a hearing from the other side of the border. Per the poll, less than 35% of all voters support such “catch and release” practices by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The poll also reveals that 47% want the asylum system fixed to stop massive fraud and abuse of America’s generosity. Ahead of the 2020 election, these numbers do not bode well for Democratic hopefuls.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The majority of American voters oppose releasing border crossers applying for asylum into the interior of the United States while they await their court hearings, a new poll finds.

The latest Harvard/Harris Poll reveals that about 2-in-3 Americans, or 66 percent, said they oppose the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) releasing border crossers into the U.S. while they await their asylum claims process. Instead, voters said border crossers should be immediately turned back to Mexico while awaiting their asylum hearing.

Less than 35 percent of all voters said they supported releasing border crossers into the U.S. — including only 32 percent of swing voters and less than 30 percent of self-described “moderates.”

Democrat On “Unwanted” Babies: “Kill Them Now or Kill Them Later”

Alabama Democrat State Representative John Rogers remarked during debate that “Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later” in his defense of abortion. As if not disgusting enough, Rogers continued his vile invective: “Some parents can’t handle a child with problems…It could be retarded. It might have no arms and no legs.” Rogers infanticidal comments were made prior to a 74-3 vote to outlaw nearly all abortion in the state.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Democrat Alabama State Rep. John Rogers made horrifying remarks on the floor of the Alabama House of Representatives on Tuesday about abortion, saying: “Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later.”

Rogers remarks came as the Republican-controlled Alabama House voted overwhelmingly — 74-3 — to outlaw nearly all abortion in the state.

“Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later,” Rogers said. “You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later.”

Mexico Reveals 300,000 Migrants Traveled to U.S. in 2019

Some 300,000 migrants from as far away as Asia and Africa have traveled through Mexico to illegally migrate to the United States in just the first three months of 2019, according to a report from the Mexican government. Mexico Interior Secretary Olga Sanchez Cordero noted a “change in the flow of migrants who are entering our country,” though she did not specify the estimation process or what led to the conclusion that the intended final destination for these migrants was the United States. The majority of migrants continue to originate from Honduras and other Central American countries. The U.S. Border Patrol separately reported the apprehension of 361,087 illegal immigrants between October 2018 and March 2019. A crisis indeed.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The Mexican government is reporting that 300,000 migrants from around the globe have traveled through Mexico in the first three months of 2019 to gain entry into the United States at its southern border.

While the majority of the migrants, the Mexican government says, are from Honduras and other countries in Central America, individuals from Cuba, Africa, and southern Asia have also been identified in the migrant caravans.

And Mexico Interior Secretary Olga Sánchez Cordero notes that these migrants want to get into the United States “illegally.”

“It’s estimated that during the first three months of the year, more than 300,000 migrants have transited through Mexico to enter the United States illegally,” Sanchez Cordero says. “There’s a change in the flow of migrants who are entering our country.”

Clinton Emails Found Stashed in Obama White House

Former top FBI official Bill Priestap testified as part of a court-ordered discovery that a cache of Hillary’s private emails were unearthed by the FBI in the Executive Office of the President. The bombshell admission, years after the fact, comes in the wake of a Judicial Watch lawsuit demanding more details on the Clinton secret server investigation that ultimately exonerated the former First Lady. “This astonishing confirmation, made under oath by the FBI, shows that the Obama FBI had to go to President Obama’s White House office to find emails that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or hide from the American people,” detailed Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “No wonder Hillary Clinton has thus far skated-Barack Obama is implicated in her email scheme.” Indeed, the crimes and misdemeanors for which Hillary has thus far escaped reprisal are too numerous to count. Here’s a cue for AG Barr to step in on behalf of the rule of law.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

A former top FBI official said a repository of Hillary Clinton’s emails was obtained by the Obama White House.

As part of a court-ordered discovery related to Clinton’s unauthorized email server, Bill Priestap was asked by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch to identify representatives of Clinton, her State Department staff, and government agencies from which “email repositories were obtained” by the FBI.

He divulged a nonexhaustive list, which included the Executive Office of the President.

Other people mentioned were former Clinton aides Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, Jacob Sullivan, and Justin Cooper, former Clinton information technology staffer Bryan Pagliano, the State Department, Secret Service, and Washington-based law firm Williams and Connolly.

Judge: Girls Have no Rights to “Visual Bodily Privacy”

The rights of some are more equal than others according to a district judge involved in the latest case of forcing transgender “rights” in America’s public schools. According to Judge Jorge Alonso of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division, allowing biological boys to use biological girls’ bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms can proceed because girls have no rights to “visual bodily privacy.” In his opinion, “bodily privacy” only refers to being physically touched, not gawked at. “[S]o far, the right not to be seen unclothed by the opposite sex is not on the Supreme Court’s list,” the judge wrote. The lawsuit comes in the wake of a 2016 determination by the district to allow boys claiming to be female to use the girls’ locker rooms in order to stop the Obama Department of Education from nixing its $6 million in federal funding. If the Left prevails, all of us will eventually be liberated from our bodies, free to do whatever we want, whenever, and with/to whomever. Sounds like a perfect paradise [insert dripping sarcasm].

Here’s more from World Tribune…

While allowing a lawsuit to proceed against an Illinois school district which allows transgender students to use the facilities of their choice, a federal judge threw out the student-plaintiffs’ argument that they have the right to “bodily privacy,” saying that right refers to physically being touched by others, “not visual bodily privacy.”

Judge Jorge Alonso of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division is allowing a lawsuit to proceed against Chicago Township High School District 211, which adopted the Obama-era transgender policy permitting boys claiming to be female to use the girls’ bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms.

The judge informed the girls who are suing the school district, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), that, “[s]o far, the right not to be seen unclothed by the opposite sex is not on the Supreme Court’s list.”

AOC Defends Omar, Mocks War Hero

Socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just keeps the idiotic statements coming. This time she rushed to the defense of fellow idiot Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is already facing furious backlash for minimizing the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something.” In good Lefty fashion, AOC not only mocked war vet Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) but pulled the victim card, tweeting that criticism of herself and Omar “is an incitement of violence against progressive women of color.” She also slammed the New York Post for its ultimate takedown of Omar by posting her “some people did something” over the iconic image of the 9/11 Twin Tower post-crash inferno. Kudos to the Post for the AOC reality check.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued to go to bat for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-NY) on Thursday after Omar trivialized the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something,” claiming that she and Omar were both victims of the political Right.

Ocasio-Cortez, who defended Omar by mocking war hero Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) on Twitter, also falsely claimed that criticism of her and Omar “is an incitement of violence against progressive women of color.”

“The levels to which Republican and conservative groups, whether they are official party apparatuses, sending out emails, calling me and others domestic terrorists, or whether it’s Ruppert Murdoch and the New York Post printing on the front page to circulate all around New York City an image that is incredibly upsetting and triggering for New Yorkers that were actually there and were actually in the radius that woke up one morning or were in their schools and didn’t know if they were going to see their parents at the end of the day, to elicit such an image for such a transparently and politically motivated attack on Ilhan,” Ocasio-Cortez rambled.

University Offers “Angry White Male Studies”

The University of Kansas is veering far Left with a new course entitled “Angry White Male Studies.” Students will examine white males in “America and Britain” to explore “manifestations of male anger” and “dominant and subordinate masculinities” but only among white males. The class, which requires a prerequisite course or the instructor’s permission, will be offered beginning this fall. So now the Ivory Tower is requiring young students to undergo propaganda in which they’ll be programmed against “white privilege” and “toxic masculinity.” Brilliant. And the Left wonders why Trump is performing so well among blue-collar voters.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The University of Kansas will be offering a new course called “Angry White Male Studies” beginning in the 2019 fall semester. The course is said to examine the “angry white male” and the “deeper sources of this emotional state while evaluating recent manifestations of male anger.”

A new course, entitled, “Angry White Male Studies” at the University of Kansas (KU) will be focusing on white males in “America and Britain,” and will examine supposed “manifestations of male anger, as well as “dominant and subordinate masculinities” among white males.

“Angry White Male Studies” will be offered at KU in the 2019 fall semester in both the Humanities and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies departments, and even requires a prerequisite course — or the instructor’s permission — in order to enroll for the course, according to the course description on the university’s website.

ACLU Sues Catholic Hospital for Transgender Surgery

The ACLU is doubling down on its attack against the First Amendment freedom of religion to force Catholics to violate their constitutionally protected rights. The liberal activist lawyers are now targeting St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka, California, for conscientiously objecting to surgically changing a biological woman to a man. The ACLU slammed the hospital for its allegedly discriminatory practices for performing hysterectomies on patients in medically necessary cases but not performing one on the transgender patient. Once upon a time, the ACLU actually fought for civil liberties. Now they’re just an activist shill for every fringe issue du jour.

Religious freedom? What religious freedom?

I’m pretty sure that I’ve written those same two questions to open an article in the past. No doubt, considering how rapidly society is transforming, I will plagiarize myself again before everything is said and done. This time, I ask the questions because the ACLU has sued St. Joseph hospital in Eureka, Calif., for refusing to perform surgery on a woman who thinks she is a man.

Oliver Knight (I don’t know her real name) explains in an article published on the ACLU’s website that the hysterectomy she was scheduled to have was the next surgery in the process of sex reassignment. She confesses that:

Since I was a kid, I’ve felt like my body didn’t match my soul. I felt uncomfortable in clothes. I felt disgusting when I showered. Everything felt wrong, but it took me a while to figure out why.

Rand Paul Implicates Obama, Brennan Behind Dossier

Just how high did the deep state Russia collusion conspiracy run? Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is taking the question straight to the Obama Oval Office. According to Paul, former Barack Obama and his CIA Director John Brennan were intentionally hands-on in the dissemination of the unverified and since debunked Steele dossier before and after the 2016 election. Paul told “Fox & Friends” that a “high-level source” confirmed it and is calling for Brennan to testify under oath before Congress. Paul went on to add that he believes the dossier was held back for “several months” before the FBI briefed Barack Obama. It was apparently only made public because it was going nowhere within the federal government until anti-Trump MSM glommed onto it with glee. As we’ve said before, this was a hit job coordinated at the highest level from day one.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul implicated former President Barack Obama and former CIA Director John Brennan in the dissemination of the Steele dossier throughout the U.S. government before and after the 2016 presidential election in a Thursday morning interview on “Fox & Friends.”

Paul said Wednesday evening that a high-level source told him Brennan insisted on briefing Obama and President Donald Trump on the dossier days after the 2016 presidential election.

The briefing was later the impetus for news reports from CNN, which led to BuzzfeedNews releasing the full unverified dossier.

Paul went further Thursday morning, saying he believes the dossier was held by the FBI for “several months” and then briefed to Obama.
