Mexico Thinks Caravan March may be Political – Imagine That

from the Blaze:

Mexican ambassador makes a stunning accusation about migrant caravan from Honduras

The Mexican ambassador to the United States said that they had reason to believe that the migrant caravan from Honduras heading towards the U.S. border was not the result of a grassroots effort, but was “politically motivated.”

“They’re frequently tricked…”

Ambassador Geronimo Gutierrez made the comments to Bret Baier on Fox News in an interview that aired Thursday.

“Mexico also issued a very clear statement saying if somebody is seeking asylum, Mexico is there along now with the U.N. to look at those claims, we want to make sure those claims are legitimate.” read more

Irony: Elizabeth Warren’s Ancestor was an Indian Fighter

from Breitbart:

Three Percent of Elizabeth Warren’s DNA from Ancestor Who Rounded Up

Trail of Tears

Cherokees for ‘Trail of Tears

Breitbart News first reported in 2012 that Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford was a member of the Tennessee Militia that rounded up Cherokees living there at the time for the Trail of Tears journey to Oklahoma in the 1830s.

This gives Warren a 1/32, or 3.125 percent, Tennessee Militia heritage, at least double the maximum 1.56 percent, minimum 0.1 percent, Native American heritage Dr. Carlos Bustamante said the evidence in the DNA genotypes purported to come from Warrren’s DNA sample “strongly suggests” in his October 10, 2018 report released by Sen. Warren on Monday. read more

Should We Require All Politicians to Take DNA Tests

from NewsBusters:

Talk about a piece that twisted itself into quite the pretzel. In a piece Monday night for Slate’s Future Tense partnership with New America and Arizona State, James Erwin passed the blame onto the President for the ancestry fiasco concerning Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA), suggesting it could lead to a new McCarthyism with politicians being “bullied” into taking such tests.

Erwin’s headline (“Elizabeth Warren Has Set a Dangerous Precedent”) and subhead (“Will other politicians be bullied into releasing their genetic information, too?”) set the tone for the nutty assertion that merely passed the buck off of Warren and her past claims about being Native American (when she’s likely only between 1/64th and 1/1,024th).

The Blue Wave May Not be Coming

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

What have we been hearing since the 2016 presidential election? That’s right – “just wait until the midterms.” There’s a “blue wave” a-comin and it’s going to sweep democrats into power and flush away the Republican majorities in the House, if not also the Senate.

Almost everyone on the left and right has bought into the notion of a blue wave. And why not? After all, it’s a common occurrence, almost tradition, that the Party which won the presidency, lose the midterms. The Party in power invariably becomes complacent and voter turn-out suffers.

But this time, we’re told, it’s much worse than mere tradition driving democrats to the polls. This time it’s about Trump and the democrat hatred of everything Trump. It’s how the notion of a “blue wave” began in the first place.

There’s never been any empirical data showing this democrat blue wave. The most they can come up with is the ethereal “generic ballet,” which means absolutely squat. Figures continue to show that those polled may “generally” favor the unnamed democrat over the unnamed Republican. As I said, these polls mean diddly squat, because as soon as names are attached to the ballot, the numbers can and often do shift wildly from the generic. read more

Podcast – Blasey Ford Gets an Award – Judge Meddles with Gun Rights

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Christine Blasey Ford is nominated for a distinguished achievement award by her alma mater, UNC, Chapel Hill. Not for her work, who according to the professor nominating her, is not at all that extraordinary, but because she spoke “her truth.” Not the truth – just her truth. And today that’s apparently good enough.

A Montana State judge granted to the city of Missoula, the right to require additional background checks for gun purchasers within their city limits, despite the State of Montana insisting they have no right to do so. read more

Does the Left Really Not Know What a Mob is?

Heather Wilhelm at National Review explains:

How to Tell If You Are Part of a Mob

This shouldn’t be that hard to explain.

Not a Mob, according to CNN

During the final, torturous week in which our nation collectively lost its marbles over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, I happened to be out of the country. This was a fantastic decision on my part — one could not feel the surge of unhinged panic in France, where people just kind of sauntered around as usual, smoking cigarettes, and looking vaguely aloof — but I also apparently missed some very exciting news.

One of the most thrilling things I missed, or so I am told, involved an exhaustive national debate over the meaning of mysterious terms in Brett Kavanaugh’s high-school yearbook. “Devil’s Triangle.” “Boof.” It was wild! It was like decoding the prophecies of Nostradamus, or at least the Rosetta Stone! read more

Taylor Swift and Scott Kelly Surrender to the Twitter Mob

from Piers Morgan at The Daily Mail:

Yes – anti-gun liberal, U.K. nut-job Piers Morgan, who I now find I agree with more than less. Funny ole world isn’t it!

There’s only one winner in Taylor Swift and Scott Kelly’s gutless surrender to the howling Twitter mob – President Trump

Oh Taylor.

Why, why, WHY?

Just when I thought you were the only sane celebrity left in this increasingly mad world of frenzied partisan bulls**t, you suddenly decide to go all ‘woke’ on me.

As you once sang: ‘Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?’

Of course, we all know the answer.

Taylor Swift, who is hugely popular in middle America, hasn’t chosen this moment to abandon her very sensible apolitical stance and come out as a Democrat because she genuinely thought: ‘Oh, I must alienate half my audience today.’

No, she’s done it because the howling Twitter mob hammered her into submission. read more
