Lindsey Graham: If 1 Million Flooding the Border is not a Crisis, “What the Hell Would Be?”

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) just drove a stake through the heart of the Left’s “no crisis” lies about President Trump’s border security national emergency. During an interview with Sean Hannity, Graham confirmed that the U.S. is being “flooded.” He demanded, “If this is not a crisis, what the hell would be?” His remarks were made in the wake of Homeland Defense Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday during which she revealed that an estimated 900,000 illegal immigrants were expected to cross our border by the end of this year. Migrants aside, the Left continues to ignore the reality of rampant drug trafficking, human trafficking, and terrorism.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Sean Hannity on Fox News that the United States is being “flooded” with people coming across the U.S. border with Mexico, and it is indeed a “crisis.”

“If this is not a crisis, what the hell would be?” Graham said in the interview, which comes ahead of the Senate’s vote on President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration to allow federal funds to be used to build a wall. “We’re being flooded.”

“The numbers are just through the roof,” Graham said.

Those numbers include family units being apprehended at the border up 335 percent over the last year and the apprehension of unaccompanied minors up 55 percent.

As Breitbart News reported, Homeland Defense secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday that an estimated 900,000 people are expected will be counted as border apprehensions by the end of the year.

The nation’s border defense system “is clearly breaking,” Nielsen said. “We need a barrier.”

Illinois “Fast-Tracks” Becoming “Abortion Capital of America”

The Illinois state government is fast-tracking identical “abortion on demand” legislation in both the state House and Senate, and the Democratic governor is fully on board. If passed, parental notice requirements will be obliterated, and there will be no protections for babies who survive abortions in that state. Abortion clinic regulations will also be repealed and non-doctors allowed to perform abortions. According to The Federalist: “A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent rights under the laws of this State.” The measures are similar to those already passed in New York and Virginia. None of this pro-death legislative popcorn is an accident. Blue states are amid a concerted effort to beat the Supreme Court to the abortion finish line ahead of the end of Roe v. Wade.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Illinois’ new Democratic governor, and a complicit Democratic legislature, are reportedly “fast-tracking” a pair of identical measures in the Illinois House and Senate designed to greatly extend legal abortion within the state of Illinois, wipe out parental notice requirements, and deny any and all rights to any pre-born individuals in the state.

Hillary Clinton Jabs Trump On Late-Term Abortion: ‘Lying About This Is Dangerous’

The Federalist reports that the new laws boil down to one sentence: “A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent rights under the laws of this State.”

Per that outline, the bills would mimic similar measures in New York state and Virginia, which would legalize abortion up until the moment of birth (and, potentially, throughout the birthing process). Like New York’s law, it would alter the state’s code, completely decriminalizing any harm or murder of a wanted child — through domestic abuse or intentional act — along with other major changes to state policy.

AOC, Top Aide Hide PAC Collusion, Possibly Face Jail Time

Socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her burger-eating Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti are potentially “facing jail time,” according to former FEC commissioner Hans von Spakovsky after an explosive Daily Caller report revealed not just coordination with a PAC… but control of it. According to former FEC commissioner Brad Smith, “If the Federal Election Commission (FEC) finds that the New York Democrat’s campaign operated in affiliation with the PAC, which had raised more than $1.8 million before her June 2018 primary, it would open them up to ‘massive reporting violations, probably at least some illegal contribution violations exceeding the lawful limits.” To say this is a bombshell is the understatement of the year.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

For the second time on Monday, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti are facing bombshell corruption allegations that not only threaten to derail their future in politics but could potentially end up with both of them “facing jail time,” according to a former FEC commissioner.

Daily Caller investigative reporter Andrew Kerr reported on Monday evening that Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti “obtained majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, according to archived copies of the group’s website, and the two appear to retain their control of the group, according to corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.”

“If the Federal Election Commission (FEC) finds that the New York Democrat’s campaign operated in affiliation with the PAC, which had raised more than $1.8 million before her June 2018 primary, it would open them up to ‘massive reporting violations, probably at least some illegal contribution violations exceeding the lawful limits,’ former FEC commissioner Brad Smith said,” Kerr continued.

Kamala Doubles Down for Abortion on Demand

Progressive Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) is carrying the infanticide agenda forward as part of her 2020 presidential platform. Surprising no one, she is framing it as the “right to choose.” In a speech Wednesday, she went so far as to defend a woman’s right to choose up to the moment of birth, if not after…for any reason. “I think it’s up to a woman to make that decision, and I will always stand by that.” The science of conception aside, Kamala has unsurprisingly forgotten about the rights of women not yet born. Where’s the #MeToo movement now?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

So just how extreme is presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris? Extreme to the point of defending abortions up to birth.

The California Democrat said in an interview on Wednesday that she believes a woman has a right to choose abortion all the way up to the baby’s birth. Her comments stand in line with the entire Democratic Party platform, which reared its ugly head this week when Senate Democrats successfully blocked the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

“I think it’s up to a woman to make that decision, and I will always stand by that,” she told TheDCNF. “I think she needs to make that decision with her doctor, with her priest, with her spouse. I would leave that decision up to them.”

According to LifeNews, Harris not only helped kill the anti-infanticide bill on Monday but also helped sponsored a pro-abortion bill legalizing all abortions up to birth for whatever reason.

AOC Says Climate Change Trumps Procreation

The one and only socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is taking her climate change agenda to a personal level. Apparently, “global warming” should be considered in family planning. Why? Because climate change will make it hard for them. “Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around, and so it’s basically, like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” quipped AOC while chopping food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video. Memo to AOC: We’re, like, on a demographic cliff, like, with not enough workers, and stuff, to, you know, like, pay for entitlements. That thing, you know, that’s really important to, like, all socialists.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested on Sunday night that people should consider not having children due to climate change because there is a “scientific consensus” that life will be hard for kids.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping up food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”

Ocasio-Cortez then took a shot at Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) over an incident that happened in Feinstein’s office on Friday when a far-left fringe group tried to pressure Feinstein into supporting the Green New Deal.

A Dozen Democratic Senators Target Christianity

The Family Research Council (FRC) released a report this week blasting twelve Democrat-aligned senators for nine instances of applying unconstitutional religious tests for public office. The nutty nine are: Bernie Sanders (VT), Chris Van Hollen (MD), Sheldon Whitehouse (RI), Dick Durbin (IL), Al Franken (MN), Dianne Feinstein (CA), Mazie Hirono (HI), Cory Booker (NJ), Chris Coons (DE), Kamala Harris (CA), Patrick Leahy (VT), and Richard Blumenthal (CT). A popular target was Catholic judge and potential SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Worse still, three of these anti-Christian senators are likely 2020 Democratic candidates. This fact alone should unite conservative opposition against the Democrats.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

n the past two years, Democrat-aligned senators have launched inquisitions into the religious beliefs of President Donald Trump’s nominees for judicial and administration positions. This week, the Family Research Council (FRC) released a report naming twelve offenders and documenting the nine times when senators applied an unconstitutional religious test for public office. Three of these senators are likely candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

“The senators asking these questions are more interested in painting the nominees as partial because of their religious convictions, rather than actually pursuing the truth,” Alexandra McPhee, Esq., FRC’s director of religious freedom advocacy and author of the report, told PJ Media in an interview on Friday.

She argued that the questions senators posed to nominees “show a distrust of religion.” These senators “are probing beliefs of nominees that have nothing to do with whether they are able to carry out their duties faithfully.”

Bernie Sanders Virtue Signals on Behalf of Anti-Semitic Representative Ilhan Omar

Jewish-born Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) wants America to know that he stands with anti-Semitic Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN), saying, “We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters.” Sanders is, of course, more known for his very high-profile support of anti-Semites, including the anti-Semite British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. He has on more than one occasion also made clear that the “occupation” of Israel on the “Palestinian territories” “runs contrary to fundamental American values.” With friends like Sanders, who needs any enemies?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Sen. Bernie Sanders, who was born Jewish but who has attacked Israel for years, called anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Tuesday to offer his support, reportedly saying, “We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters.”

As reported by Jewish Insider, and confirmed by The Daily Beast, Sanders spoke with Omar. The Daily Beast reported:

Omar’s office confirmed that the congresswoman spoke with Sanders—who is Jewish—but the conversation was off-record and so they could not go into further details about the contents of the discussion. A source familiar with the conversation confirmed to The Daily Beast that Sanders expressed support for Omar.

The Daily Beast noted that Jewish Insider had stated Sanders had discussed Omar’s anti-Semitic tweets on a conference call hosted by James Zogby. The Daily Beast added, “Zogby told The Daily Beast the call was off-record when contacted about the veracity of the reporting, but the source familiar with the lawmakers’ conversation confirmed the Jewish Insider story.”

Georgetown Students Vote to Tax Themselves for Slavery Reparations

More than 180 years ago, Georgetown University sold 272 slaves. Starting in the fall of 2020, the Georgetown student government body wants students to establish a fund for the descendants of these slaves with a $27.20 fee per student each semester of attendance. It passed in a 20-4 vote. Students receiving financial aid will have the option to opt out if the measure takes effect after a campuswide vote in April. This is what we call redistributive justice: those who did not sin paying for the sins of their ancestors.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Students at Georgetown University are considering paying reparations for slaves that Georgetown University sold more than 180 years ago.

Earlier this month, the Georgetown student government authorized a campus-wide student referendum that will ask students to establish a fund for the descendants of these 272 slaves. If the referendum passes, a fee would be collected each semester, starting in the fall of 2020.

The semesterly fee proposed is $27.20 per student “in honor of the 272 people sold by Georgetown,” according to the student government resolution approving the referendum, obtained by the College Fix.

Students receiving financial aid will be able to opt out of the reparations payments, according to student news outlet the Hoya.

House GOP Reintroduces Born-Alive Act

Missouri Republican Representative Ann Wagner reintroduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to protect babies born alive after failed abortions with the same mandatory medical care and legal protection as that of any wanted newborn baby. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has asked for unanimous consent for the bill’s consideration. Republican Whip Steve Scalise (LA) is bringing a resolution that will force a House vote after 30 legislative days if the bill fails to move otherwise. “Innocent life must be defended and protected at every stage, and that includes babies born alive during an abortion,” said Scalise. “We must immediately extend legal protections to these vulnerable newborns and prosecute any doctor who would leave them to die.” The stark contrast between the two major parties on innocent life in the U.S. is now complete.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Missouri Republican Rep. Ann Wagner re-introduced a bill Wednesday that would protect babies born alive after abortion from infanticide.

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) asked for unanimous consent for the House to consider the bill.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would ensure any infant born alive following an abortion receives the same medical care and protection the law gives any newborn baby.

Republican Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana – who originally co-sponsored the legislation when it was introduced previously – will bring a resolution that provides for floor consideration of Wagner’s bill. The two Republicans would force a vote in the House after 30 legislative days if no action is taken.

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.”
