Tlaib Continues Attacks on Israel After Rejecting Invitation to Visit…

0

The American people have witnessed a deeply disturbing pattern of anti-Semitic rhetoric from members of the House Democrat caucus. At the forefront of controversy is Rep. Rashida Tlaib; Tlaib continues her unwarranted attacks on Israel and maintains alignments with Rep. Ilhan Omar, another Democrat who has come under fire for anti-Semitic statements.

The Backstory

Recently, Tlaib faced a ban from entering the nation of Israel, due to her support for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) and concerning statements regarding the Holocaust.

Following this ban, Tlaib issued a written appeal, urging the Israeli government to grant her access into the country for the sake of visiting her grandmother; in her appeal, the congresswoman stated that she would follow any stipulations to enter the country. Israel later granted Tlaib allowance to visit, on the conditions that she would refrain from championing boycotts of Israel during her visit.

After getting the allowance she requested, Tlaib announced that she would not be going to visit her grandmother after all. The congresswoman alleged that Israel’s stipulations were oppressive and racist; on Monday, Tlaib continued her attacks on Israel during a press conference, as documented by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The Press Conference

Tlaib’s press conference ultimately consisted of an anecdotal sob story and the demonization of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The congresswoman noted childhood experiences which involved her mother going through “dehumanizing checkpoints” when visiting her family in Palestine.

She then went on to accuse Israel of “humanizing oppression” before lamenting over her previously planned trip to the nation.

In Tlaib’s own words:

“Our delegation trip included meetings with Israeli veterans, who were forced to participate in military occupation. They also desperately want peace and self-determination for their Palestinian neighbors. They could have shed light into injustice of raids, shootings, demolition and child detention.”

The Bottom Line

There are some realities here which Tlaib is attempting to gloss over; she had her chance to visit Israel and she turned it down. Going after the Israeli prime minister and government in the way she’s doing is unfortunate. Her rejection of the lifted ban also shows that her written appeal always lacked sincerity.

If Tlaib was truly as committed to making a difference in Israel as she claimed, perhaps halting the anti-Semitic rhetoric would have been a good idea. Israel reserves the right to bar entry to individuals, especially those who support the boycott of their nation. If Tlaib truly believes Israel to be as racist and oppressive as she claims, then she should have no problem with not entering the country.

Shocking Video: Toddler Falls Over Border Wall!

0
In one of the most shocking videos ever, a toddler is seen falling over the border in Arizona as migrants attempt to illegally enter the United States by scaling the border; Townhall reports.

A Closer Look at What Happened

On Monday, a group of migrants decided that attempting to scale a 16-foot border was a wise idea; the border which they chose to climb is stationed at a port of entry in San Luis. During their attempt to illegally enter the country,  a toddler fell to the ground. Thankfully, border patrol agents were able to get the proper care for the toddler and take the migrants into custody. Jose Garibay, a spokesman for Border Patrol’s Yuma Sector, issued the following statements about the incident which took place in Arizona:
“I don’t know if the mother was with the child, but in the video, you can see that the child actually falls from almost the top of the border wall and lands on the ground and may or may not have tried to be stopped by the individuals who are in the group.”

Future Prevention

It’s a miracle that the toddler was able to be saved by border patrol agents, but this most recent issue at the border speaks to a bigger problem. At this time, the United States is lacking the proper barriers to deter illegal immigration. This is why we have migrants who are continuously attempting to scale our existing borders. This is why we now have babies falling over the border and sustaining injuries. Each of these incidents is a living testament to the humanitarian crisis which is happening at the Southern border. Unfortunately, the humanitarian crisis is a situation which Democrats have chosen to ignore because it’s politically inconvenient. Rather than work with President Trump on effective border security, Democrats continue to stonewall border security and allow for situations like these to persist.   What do you think about the latest incident at the border?

Mueller Probe to be Released Today, Trump Weighs In

0

The details of the infamous Mueller probe are set to be released today. The conclusions which are made public are certainly likely to dominate headlines in the days and weeks to come.

While the details of the investigation are forthcoming, this has not stopped President Trump from weighing in on the matter, as documented by Fox News.

Reviewing the Details

The findings of the controversial Russia investigation will certainly be talked about in America for quite some time. There is a lot of build-up surrounding these details and many people have their own thoughts on the probe. Despite news that President Trump will not face any indictments, Democrats are still hoping that the investigation’s findings will somehow implicate him in some type of wrongdoing.

Earlier this morning, the president posted a series of tweets which express his thoughts on the Mueller probe.

See for yourself:

News of the probe’s findings being made public are prompting a variety of reactions. While the Russia probe may be completed, Democrats are claiming that it’s only the beginning. Left-wing congress members still plan to raise inquiries about whether President Trump may have “obstructed justice” during the nearly two years in which Mueller’s investigation was underway.

Democrats’ Desire for Trump to be Guilty

The findings of the Mueller probe are not even completely public yet and Democrats are already looking for a new angle which they can use to stick it to Trump. The fact of the matter is that Democrats just want the president to be guilty of something; they can’t stand that he won the 2016 election fair and square.

Narratives on the left have gone from claiming that Trump colluded with Russia, to claiming that Trump has shady personal/business financial dealings and now to questioning whether or not he obstructed justice during the probe.

This is so transparent that anyone who refuses to see it simply has blinders on.

 

What do you think the findings of Mueller’s investigation will state? Let us know your thoughts and predictions in the comments section down below!

 

Record Setting Fund Raising for Trump 2020 Campaign

0

President Trump’s re-election campaign raised a whopping $30.3 million in the first quarter of this year, matching and/or exceeding the pace of leading fundraisers among the Democrats, Fox News confirmed Sunday.

The Trump campaign said nearly 99 percent of its donations were of $200 or less, with an average donation of $34.26. In all, the campaign had $40.8 million cash on hand, an unprecedented war chest for an incumbent president this early in the campaign.

Trump’s fundraising ability was matched by the Republican National Committee, which brought in $45.8 million in the first quarter — its highest non-election year total. Combined, the pro-Trump effort reported $82 million in the bank. The numbers were reported first by The Associated Press.

Trump formally launched his reelection effort just hours after taking office in 2017, earlier than any incumbent had in prior years. By contrast, former President Barack Obama launched his 2012 effort in April 2011 and had under $2 million on hand at this point in the campaign. Obama went on to raise more than $720 million for his reelection. Trump’s reelection effort has set a $1 billion target for 2020.

Trump Keeping Pace With Democratic Challengers

Among Trump’s would-be Democratic challengers, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was leading the money race after taking in $18.2 million in the first quarter of this year. He was followed by California Sen. Kamala Harris, with $12 million. Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke ($9.4 million), South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg ($7 million) and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren ($6 million) rounded out the top five fundraisers among Democrats.

In the past, republicans have trailed Democrats in online fundraising. However, Trump has closed the gap, driving small-dollar donors who make recurring donations to the GOP at rates the party has never seen before. According to RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Trump’s campaign already has seen eight seven-figure fundraising days this year and has taken in money from over 1 million new online donors since Trump’s inauguration — including 100,000 this year.

Trump is benefiting from the advantages of incumbency, like universal name recognition and his unrivaled position atop the Republican Party.
