Beto Attempts to Label President Trump’s Press Feud “Incitement to Violence”

Liberals say the darnedest things, don’t they?

From the moment that Donald Trump stepped into politics, the mainstream media smelled blood in the water.

After all, this was one of their own:  A slightly eccentric and wealthy man whose persona was the only thing larger than his bank account.  Trump was the high end, luxury brand of the American Dream – something that even the most prestigious TV executive could only dream of.

So, as Trump rose to fame and to power, the mainstream turned against him.  Not only was he running on one of the most America-forward platforms since Ronald Reagan, he was doing so with an overt nonchalance as to how the media would have scripted it.  He was an outsider, plain and simple, and the establishment hated him for it.

From that moment on, Trump had a target on his back for every syllable he uttered.  His feud with the press itself has drawn a plethora of criticism itself, including from likely 2020 contender Robert Francis O’Rourke.

Possible 2020 hopeful and media darling Beto O’Rourke used the line to attack Trump and Republicans in 2018, accusing him of inciting violence against the media.

“This idea fronted by the president that somehow the press are the enemy of the people, reinforced by him tweeting out images of a reporter being hit by a train, body slammed in a wrestling ring, it is incitement to violence. I don’t know any other way to call it,” O’Rourke said.

“Beto” is famous for performing multiple skateboarding stunts in his failed quest to usurp the Senate seat currently held by republican Ted Cruz of Texas.

Woman In London Pleads Guilty To ISIS Terror Plot Designed To ‘Kill As Many People As Possible’

Published

People on the left often wonder why folks on the right are so hardcore about immigration laws being followed and enforced, after all, shouldn’t we, as a nation of immigrants, just allow others who want a better life to come on in, regardless of whether or not they respect our laws? Well, the story of a woman who just plead guilty to an ISIS plot in London is prime example of why that line of thinking is false and why so many conservatives want a secure border. Here’s more on this situation from The Washington Examiner: A British woman said she planned to bomb a hotel and St. Paul’s Cathedral in London after pledging allegiance to the Islamic State. Safiyya Amira Shaikh, 36, pleaded guilty on Friday in London Central Criminal Court. Prosecutors said Shaikh wanted to place an improvised explosive device in a hotel and then carry out a suicide bombing at London’s iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral with the goal of killing herself and “as many other people as possible.” Shaikh was born with the name Michelle Ramsden to a non-Muslim family but converted to Islam in 2007. She became radicalized by 2015 after listening and interacting with Islamic extremists online, according to the prosecution. Shaikh was responsible for casing out the cathedral and stayed close by at a hotel during her surveillance mission last year. What she didn’t know was that she was actually communicating with an undercover officer using an encrypted messaging app Telegram. Shaikh wrote in one message that she would “rather die young and get to paradise quickest way possible.” “I always knows I wanted to do something big … killing one [infidel] is not enough for me,” Shaikh said. The undercover officer working the case pretended to be an expert with explosives and offered…

Katie Hill’s Claim About Why She Resigned Her Post Disputed By Former Republican Lawmaker

Published

on

Former GOP lawmaker Ryan Costello recently stated that he isn’t buying the explanation that Democratic Rep. Katie Hill gave for stepping down from her post. If you’ll remember back, Hill resigned from her position while facing an investigation by the House Ethics Committee looking into an alleged affair she had with a member of her congressional office. However, Hill visited “The View” and said the real reason she actually stepped down. Here’s more on all of this from The Washington Examiner: Hill said the “slow processes” of the investigation would have been “incredibly invasive to my staff and to my entire office.” “It’s also something that I’m glad I was able to take the pressure off of my staff by resigning so that they didn’t have to worry about that,” she said. “But why did I decide to step down? I realized the impact that I was having on my colleagues. I did not want to be a distraction during the time that we were coming up on the impeachment inquiry vote. I didn’t want to be used as a tool against my fellow freshmen who were coming from these swing districts.” Her comments on The View came a day after she claimed “biphobia” was the reason behind her resignation, and that’s where Costello pushed back. https://twitter.com/RyanCostello/status/1230848827621507072 Photos of Hill, 32, were published in October that showed her naked in a hotel room, brushing the hair of a female campaign staffer who worked on her 2018 congressional campaign. Additional photos were later published that showed her holding a bong while undressed. She apologized and admitted she had an affair with the female campaign aide but denied another alleged affair with a staffer and resigned days later. Hill later on said that she struggled deeply with suicidal thoughts after she resigned…
