Democrats Put on Red Alert to Block ANY Border Wall Funds

Democrats are refusing to acknowledge the open borders crisis of their own making and are continuing to deny any federal funding for President Trump’s border wall ahead of federal fiscal year 2020, which begins Oct. 1. “In nearly half of the 12 annual appropriations bills House Democrats have ushered through committee, they have included specific language to block wall-related emergency powers,” reported The Hill. The next big fight is the homeland security appropriations bill, which at this point rescinds $6 million in previous funding and provides zero border wall funding or additional funds for agents or checkpoints.

Democrats on high alert to block any funding for Trump’s border wall
Democrats are doing everything they can to block off any federal funding for President Trump’s border wall amid rising tensions over the crisis at the border.

In nearly half of the 12 annual appropriations bills House Democrats have ushered through committee, they have included specific language to block wall-related emergency powers, limit the use of flexible funds and oppose refilling accounts that could be used to build the barrier.

Their efforts come as anger within the Democratic Party is rising over the treatment of migrants detained at the border. Lawmakers who visited the border on Monday described conditions as “inhumane” and “abhorrent.”

CA Gov Defends Nike for Cancelling Patriotic Shoe

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) took to Twitter to defend Nike after Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (R) ordered the Arizona Commerce Authority to withdraw all financial incentive dollars for the shoe company to locate there following its decision to pull an American flag-themed shoe off the shelves. Newsom commented “…we’re just a quick jaunt over the border” and then thanked Nike for “doing the right thing” and that “CA is open for business and welcomes those that represent the best of American values.” You know… because American values include kneeling during the national anthem and decrying serial racism while pulling down millions of dollars from the NFL.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Tuesday night, after Nike had canceled an American flag-themed shoe, triggering Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey to withdraw financial incentives for Nike to open a manufacturing facility in Arizona, California Gov. Gavin Newsom tweeted that Nike was “doing the right thing” and represented “the best of our American values.”

Newsom’s comment “we’re just a quick jaunt over the border…” was a response to Ducey’s decision to withdraw financial incentives for Nike to open a manufacturing facility in Goodyear, Arizona. Ducey had tweeted:

Words cannot express my disappointment at this terrible decision. I am embarrassed for Nike. Nike is an iconic American brand and American company.

Nike Drops Patriotic Sneaker After Kaepernick Whines

Just ahead of the Fourth of July, Nike has dropped a Betsy Ross-themed patriotic sneaker…because former San Francisco 49ers anthem kneeler Colin Kaepernick whined about them. The shoe, called the Air Max 1 USA, had already been shipped to retailers according to a report by The Wall Street Journal, but Kaepernick’s offense over the “racist” Betsy Ross flag-you know, with its slavery connotations-was enough to have the company pull the entire line of $140 sneakers with a whitewashed excuse, claiming they “featured the old version of the American flag.” In short, Lefty Kaepernick ordered Nike to just NOT do it.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Just don’t do it.

That was the message ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick delivered to Nike over the planned release of a USA-themed sneaker, which featured a Betsy Ross flag on the heel, according to a report.

Nike nixed the released of the Air Max 1 USA after having already sent the sneakers to retailers because the protesting quarterback said he felt the use of the Betsy Ross flag was offensive and carried slavery connotations, sources told The Wall Street Journal.

Citing people familiar with the matter, the Journal’s report stated: “After images of the shoe were posted online, Mr. Kaepernick, a Nike endorser, reached out to company officials saying that he and others felt the Betsy Ross flag is an offensive symbol because of its connection to an era of slavery.”

CA State Budget Expands Healthcare for Illegals

Being on the brink of financial collapse is not stopping California officials from expanding healthcare for illegal aliens in its latest budget signed by Governor Gavin Newsom (D). “Newsom last month proposed providing $98 million a year to cover low-income illegal immigrants between the ages of 19 and 25,” according to Fox News, but has now signed off on a “more extreme state Assembly’s bill [which proposed covering all illegal immigrants over the age of 19 living in California]-a proposal that would cost an estimated $3.4 billion.” Then again, that may be just a drop in the bankruptcy bucket considering the Third World diseases flooding into the Sanctuary State.

Here’s more from Town Hall…

I mean it shouldn’t shock us, but for those who are opposed to this nonsense, and there are probably quite a few in California, it’s just another sign that this progressive cesspool only becomes more filthy with the latest $215 billion budget. It’s been signed into law. Nothing we can do now. The California Republican Party is all but dead and virtual single-party rule has allowed for this insanity to flourish unchecked. It’s part of the illegal alien lust that has driven California Democrats for years. Gov. Gavin Newsom signed off on the budget last week (via Fox News):

California’s new budget, signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom … expands health care for illegal immigrants and includes a penalty for people who do not purchase health insurance.
The provisions were among several measures in the $214.8 billion operating budget that Newsom signed before the midnight deadline. It is the largest in the state’s history, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Obama UN Ambassador Bashed Trump Using Gov’t Email

Samantha Power, former President Obama’s now infamous “unmasker-in-chief” and ambassador to the United Nations, bashed Donald Trump before and after the 2016 election using her official government email. Several emails were reported by The Hill as examples of Power’s Trump bashing, including writing that President Trump wanting a new direction for the UN “reflects a lack of understanding of history” and “Lord help us all” when he announced his intention to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords. She even emphasized in the latter email that “This email is UNCLASSIFIED” when asking a colleague how he was holding up in the wake of election day. The question, of course, is whether she, too, used a personal address for government business since that seems to have been administration policy.

Here’s more from The Federalists…

President Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, used her government email to bash Donald Trump before and after the 2016 election, according to documents uncovered by the American Center for Law and Justice.

Power infamously abused authority in the unprecedented unmasking of hundreds of Americans working with the Trump campaign, and the latest documents add to the evidence of her acting on her anti-Trump sentiments in an official capacity.

Starting before the GOP primaries, in an email connecting Oskar Eustis, the artistic director at the Public Theater in New York, with scholar Norman Ornstein, Power commented that a Trump win in the New Hampshire primary would make politics no longer.

Pelosi: “Shouldn’t be a Crime” to Cross Border Illegally

Nancy Pelosi has gone full open borders, now advocating that illegal immigration into the U.S. should no longer be a crime. “You cannot say anybody coming across the border is breaking the law,” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. According to her logic, no one can be called an illegal immigrant, and the act cannot be called a crime because some may be seeking asylum. That’s curious. Whatever shall we do with the good folks at ISIS attempting to cross into the U.S. and set up terror shops? Should we offer them free health care as well?

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi embraced the view of some Democratic presidential contenders that illegal immigration should not be a crime.

“You cannot say anybody coming across the border is breaking the law,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said Thursday in her weekly press conference. “Not until there is a determination whether they can stay or not.”

Pelosi echoed the view of some of the Democrats running for president, including Julián Castro, who called for the repeal of the specific statute during the presidential debate Wednesday night.

Dems Want to Give Health Insurance to Illegals

During the second round of the first 2020 Democratic presidential debates, candidates made it clear that they want to give health care to illegals. When asked to “raise your hand if your government health care plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants,” every single one of them raised their hand. Joe Biden even insisted that illegal immigrants “contribute to the well-being of the country” and should get health coverage rather than jail time for committing a felony. The bottom line should one of these clowns prevail in 2020 is that illegal immigration won’t be illegal anymore, and the hordes of immigrants coming across will get free health care to boot. That ought to work out really well. Just ask Germany.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

In the second round of the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Thursday, all ten of the candidates onstage said their government health care plans would provide coverage for illegal immigrants.

NBC News co-anchor Savannah Guthrie asked the candidates — including frontrunners former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg — if they would cover illegal immigrants.

“Raise your hand if your government healthcare plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants,” she said.

Every single candidate raised his or her hand.

Dem Strategist: “Painful to Watch”

Democratic Strategist Eric Soufer called Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s performance during last night’s 2020 Democratic debate “painful to watch.” He also described Senator Cory Booker’s (D-NJ) performance as “Death by a thousand platitudes.” Soufer did, however, credit Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as the winner if only because she was “the only one who could effectively explain why the economy isn’t working for everyone.” But none of this should come as a surprise since the Democratic race for the White House is little more than a beauty pageant for Socialist Reactionary of the Year award, wherein nothing worthy of serious consideration will be offered for voters to consider.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

A Democratic strategist who formerly worked on presidential campaigns for John Edwards and Barack Obama gave his post-debate analysis this morning on the first round of 2020 Democratic hopefuls. Eric Soufer, who is the managing director of political strategy outfit, Tusk Ventures, offered poignant critiques and some unexpected praise of the 10 Democrats on stage in Miami Wednesday night.

Soufer was deeply critical of New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker saying, “Death by a thousand platitudes. His riff about living in Newark has gone stale.” But his most negative review was of former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, once considered a front-runner, saying he was “surprisingly cautious and clearly uncomfortable. He failed to connect with the audience and took more arrows from his opponents than anyone else. It was painful to watch.”

Soufer offered high praise for former San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro, saying the 44-year-old offered “a good, standout performance as the young, energetic candidate in a primary where age will be an issue.”

Project Veritas Exposes Google Plot Against Trump

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas just exposed Google executive Jen Gennai explaining how the Left wing’s Internet leviathan plans to prevent “the next Trump Situation.” Among her standout claims: “We’re also training our algorithms, like, if 2016 happened again, would we have, would the outcome be different?” The video did not last even 24 hours before Google-owned YouTube removed it, approaching 50 thousand likes and a million views, from its platform, citing a “privacy violation.” As for Gennai, she’s playing the victim and claiming to be “set up” and her words taken out of context. It’s time for an anti-censorship hammer from conservatives in Congress…an election hangs in the balance.

Here’s more from American Greatness…

James O’Keefe’s explosive video exposing Google’s political agenda appears to have ruffled some feathers in the media world.

Jen Gennai, the Google executive seen talking to Project Veritas undercover journalists about Google’s plans to prevent “the next Trump situation,” has already published a response complaining that she was taken out of context.

And the bombshell video didn’t last even a full day on YouTube before it was removed from the platform.

Dems Divided over Border Relief

Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic cabal proposed a series of changes to a $4.5 billion relief package allegedly intended to address the humanitarian crisis at America’s southern border with Mexico. Changes include requiring Customs and Border Protection “to establish health standards for children and adults in custody, including for nutrition and hygiene,” according to The Hill. Pelosi emphasized that the bill was not an immigration reform bill “to meet the needs of our [illegal immigrant] children.” In other words, Democrats are still hyperventilating over the notion that our sovereign borders should be-gasp-secured. Yet again, Pelosi has demonstrated why 2020 continues to incline in President Trump’s favor.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote today on a bill that could further send $4.5 billion to alleviate substandard humanitarian conditions in migrant facilities at the southwestern border. However, Democratic lawmakers are divided on the provisions in the bill that many feel give President Trump too much leeway to use the funds to increase border enforcement, as reported by the New York Times.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., met with several congressional Democrats on Monday evening to discuss the rift over the bill which, if passed, could quickly send money to several migrant programs that are running out of cash. Many progressive Democrats wanted further restrictions in the legislation that would stop Trump from being able to funnel the funds toward border enforcement programs.
