The Leftist Media Lie about Illegal Immigrant Families – What did We Expect

from Ben Shapiro at the Daily Wire:

But not a word from the media or any democrat at the time!

The Media Are Lying About Trump Separating Illegal Immigrant Families. Here’s The Truth.

Over the weekend, the media went insane over the supposed Trump administration policy of separating illegal immigrant parents from their children. According to the media, Trump could with one quick fix simply prevent the separation of children from their parents; according to the media, all Trump has to do is wave his magic wand, and all will be well.

This is a lie.

More specifically, it’s several lies.

1. Trump Created Separation Of Children From Illegal Immigrant Parents. This is plainly false. In 1997, the federal government made an agreement in a case called Flores not to keep unaccompanied illegal immigrant children in custody beyond 20 days. The settlement said nothing about accompanied illegal immigrant children – children who crossed the border with their parents. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals then ruled that accompanied children also could not be held in custody under the terms of the settlement. This meant that the government either had to release whole families, or that the government had to separate parents from children.

2. Immigrants Seeking Asylum Are Being Punished For Seeking Asylum. This is plainly untrue as well. Immigrants who come to points of entry to seek asylum aren’t actually illegally in the country – they’re not arrested. They’re processed through ICE, and their children stay with them. If, however, illegal immigrants cross the border illegally, the Trump administration now treats them as criminals. If they choose deportation, they aren’t separated from their kids; if they choose to apply for asylum, they stay in the country longer than 20 days, and their kids have to be removed by operation of law.

3. The Trump Facilities Are Awful Thanks To Trump. They may be awful, but they were just as awful under President Obama. These are pictures from Brandon Darby of Breitbart circa 2014:

Don’t Equate Real Slavery with Snowflake Oppression

Recently, as all of America no doubt already knows, Kanye West has said some things which have upset the left, particularly the black race-baiting industry. And it is an industry.

Kanye professed his love of president Trump and said they were both “Dragon Energy.” I have no idea what that means, but really, who cares. It sounds like a compliment. He said he likes a lot, but not all, of what Trump is doing. He even took a poke at Obama by tweeting that he was president for eight years and nothing changed in Chicago.

Not to defend Obama, but the city of Chicago is not the federal government’s concern.

But I think it was Kanye’s rant about slavery being a choice that really put the left over the edge. He said during a TMZ interview: “When you hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years?! That sounds like a choice. Like, you were there for 400 years and it’s all of you all? Like, we’re mentally in prison. Like, slavery goes too direct to the idea of blacks,” he said. “So prison is something that unites us as one race, blacks and whites being one race. We’re the human race.”

May I dispel the myth of 400 years of slavery. The slave trade began in America in 1619 and ended in 1865. That’s 246 years – not 400. And actually, the first black man to be declared a “slave for life” in America happened in 1654 (or `55). His name was John Casor, and coincidentally, his owner was tobacco farmer Anthony Johnson, who was also black. read more

WND Exclusive – Trump Gets More Done in 1 Year than Most Do in 4

The political hacks on the left and still some on the right continue their attempts at trashing Trump, claiming he is racist, he’s obese and has other medical issues. They revel in his apparent low approval numbers and, of course, his “s—hole” comment heard ’round the world. Too busy are they even to notice how much good he’s done already. Or maybe they have noticed, which is why they are all in an absolute panic to try to hang the guy, before the rest of America figures it out.

Heck, have we ever seen such cooperation between North and South Korea? Not in my lifetime.

Oprah is No Moderate

I take issue with some on the right believing that Oprah might turn out to be some sort of Joe Manchin-type democrat centrist. I’m not even sure Joe Manchin is any longer a Joe Manchin-type centrist democrat.

That right-wing sooth-sayer Bill Kristol, republican establishment hack and never-Trumper, who predicted that the Arab Spring would work out great, and has pretty much been wrong about everything else, believes The Oprah may be some sort of closet moderate.

He also believes she could win the democrat nomination and could make a better president than Trump. Wow – that’s a pretty bold statement for someone who knows nothing of Oprah’s actual politics, couldn’t have done even cursory research on her, but still claims that, “if she runs, couldn’t she win the Democratic nomination and the general election? And wouldn’t she be a better president than Trump?” read more

Trump’s War on Women Continues

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The left is once again in melt down mode over Trump’s latest supposed war on something they hold dear. This time it is the President’s wanton disregard for ObamaCare’s mandate requiring free contraception and his “administration’s increasingly bizarre war on abortion.”

The New York Times writes in an article entitled, “Why Judges Matter,” that the Trump administration is attempting to block access to abortions for “undocumented teenagers” and employee access to birth control.

As if right on cue, a leftist hack federal district court judge in Philadelphia, Wendy Beetlestone, stepped in and blocked the administration’s attempt at both saving human life and providing for employer’s religious and moral objection to contraception.

Imagine the lengths the left will go through to get these young illegals to this country safely and insist they stay at any cost, only to authorize and encourage the murder of one after they arrive. This is exactly what they are proposing, by offering free and easy abortions to illegals. read more

WND Exclusive – True Size of the Fed Swamp will Blow Your Mind

“Draining the swamp” has become synonymous with both the Trump campaign and his presidency. Although it’s not a new saying, it has stuck with him since he first uttered it.

The phrase was first made popular by President Ronald Reagan in 1983, who also said he came to Washington to “drain the swamp.” Reagan’s sentiment was identical to Trump’s in that regard. Reagan also wished to roll back the size and scope of the federal government.

It was used again in 2007 by Nancy Pelosi, when the Republicans imploded and were tossed out, leaving her to be elevated to speaker of the House. However, her sentiment was just slightly different. She claimed to want to “drain the swamp” of over 10 years of Republican control of the House. read more

WND Exclusive – Donald Trump is Making a Believer of Me

With every act – with every presidential proclamation – Donald Trump is becoming the president we’ve been hoping for since the close of Ronald Reagan’s last term. I think he has surprised most everyone.

He has had one of the most historic first years of any president in recent memory. And just imagine what his first year could have looked like if the Republican-controlled legislature weren’t so spineless and spiteful and didn’t have so many liberals in its ranks. Repeal of Obamacare would be a reality, as would more substantive tax relief, and border wall construction would be well underway. It could have and should have been the most consequential year of any presidency going back to our founding. And I don’t say this lightly. read more

Dirty Clinton Paid for Dirty Dossier

from the Daily Mail:

Hillary Clinton‘s campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped bankroll research that led to the ‘golden showers’ dossier on Donald Trump.

Clinton’s campaign lawyer Marc Elias hired research firm Fusion GPS back in April 2016 to look into allegations of Trump’s ties to Russia, according to the Washington Post.

Fusion GPS, the Washington-based research firm, then hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to dig up the unconfirmed dirt on Trump.

Clinton’s lawyer and his law firm Perkins Coie continued to fund the research until October 2016 – just days before the presidential election.

The research was previously funded by an unknown anti-Trump Republican donor during the primary, but Clinton’s campaign then paid for it to be finished.

Sources would not confirm how much was paid to Fusion GPS, but said the campaign and DNC shared the cost.  read more
