Dem Senator Insinuates Border Patrol Agents are War Criminals

Schatz would go on to delete the tweet above, replacing it with a far more metered message.

With a precarious and delicate situation playing out on our southern border, the choices that we make with our language must be very careful.

The massive horde of thousands of Central American migrants in Tijuana, Mexico could be a powder keg of trouble for the United States and President Donald Trump.  Trump campaigned heavily on the idea that he would build a “big, beautiful” wall between the US and Mexico in order to hopefully funnel would-be illegal immigrants through the American naturalization process.

He has been stymied at every turn, predictably, by member of the democratic party who’ve made a hard turn toward globalism in recent decades.

Now, as Border Patrol authorities were forced to use crowd control measures to repel a “stampede” at the gates over the weekend, the left side of our political spectrum is attempting to exploit the melee to score points with their constituents.

One Senate Democrat took things a little too far.

Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, tweeted Sunday that the use of tear gas against Central American migrants who attempted to enter the U.S. illegally may have been a violation of international agreements governing the use of chemical weapons — before he backtracked.

The Associated Press reported that U.S. agents shot several rounds of the gas after migrants tried to penetrate several points along the border at the San Ysidro border crossing between Tijuana, Mexico, and California. Migrants sought to squeeze through gaps in wire, climb over fences and peel back metal sheeting to enter.

In response to the reports, Schatz initially tweeted: “Tear gas across the border against unarmed families is a new low.” Approximately 45 minutes later, Schatz tweeted: “Who gave the order? Did it implement or contravene policy?” He then tweeted “WHO GAVE THE ORDER?” in all caps.

Then came the clincher:

Schatz would go on to delete the tweet above, replacing it with a far more metered message.

Senator Schatz would go on to admit in another Twitter thread that his tweet had been deleted because he “didn’t know enough” about what he was talking about.

Minority Owners Of Washington Redskins Looking To Sell Stake In Team

Published

on

Three individual minority owners of the Washington Redskins professional football team are looking to sell off their shares in the team amid controversy over the team’s name. Again. Yes, it seems the Redskins are forever caught in a loop of having to defend their team name from the gaggle of social justice warriors running around the nation screaming and crying about faux systemic racism and crusading for causes like renaming sports teams in order to make themselves feel important and like they have a purpose. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Businessmen Robert Rothman, Dwight Schar, and Frederick Smith have hired an investment banking firm to conduct the search for potential buyers, which, according to one unnamed source, was happening because they are “not happy being a partner” of majority owner Daniel Snyder, the Washington Post reported. ProFootballTalk first reported that Schar and Smith were trying to sell their share of the team on Sunday. Rothman is chairman and CEO of Black Diamond Capital, a private investment company; Schar is chairman of NVR Inc., one of the largest homebuilder companies in the country; and Smith is the chairman, president, and CEO of FedEx, which has a long-standing partnership with the football franchise. Together, they account for about 40% of the team’s ownership. The remaining stake rests with Snyder, his mother, and his sister. The organization said on Friday that it will conduct a “thorough review” of the team’s name amid new demands that it stops referring to the team as the Redskins, which critics view as being racist and insensitive to Native Americans. Snyder released a statement last Friday saying, “This process allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition and history of the franchise but also input from our alumni, the organization, sponsors,…

Good News For Trump: SCOTUS Issues Ruling Against ‘Faithless’ Electors

Published

on

The Supreme Court ruled against “faithless electors,” allowing states to require presidential electors to vote for the candidates they are committed to, which is good news for President Trump just ahead of what is sure to be a very tight contest come November. Essentially, this means that electors can’t rebel and refuse to cast their votes for the candidate who won the state, therefore, if Trump wins a state, he gets all of the votes without worrying about losing any. The ruling strips a tool of dissension out of the hands of the left who aren’t above using any and every strategy at their disposal to stop him from having a second term. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The 538 members of the Electoral College are chosen based on the presidential vote in each state, and they, in turn, elect the president of the United States. States can require these electors to vote for the statewide winner or otherwise follow state laws, the court ruled. Justices decided against four 2016 Electoral College electors seeking to overturn state laws binding them to the presidential nominee to whom they are pledged. In that race, a record seven electors didn’t back the candidate to which they were pledged. A total of 10 electors rebelled last cycle, and seven of those votes counted toward the final tally. The overall results were 304 for Donald Trump, 227 for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and others seven, instead of Trump 306 to Clinton 232. Four “faithless electors,” one from Colorado and another three from Washington, presented their oral arguments to the Supreme Court last month challenging the laws in 32 states and the District of Columbia. This is a good thing. Whoever wins a state should be entitled to those Electoral College votes. Period.…
