Democrats Jump Ship on ‘Abolish ICE’ Bill. Here’s What Made Them Bail.

Published

on

A new bill crafted by the Democrats that would eliminated Immigration and Customs Enforcement is backfiring in a huge way on the left. In fact, the fallout is so big it’s causing them to abandon the bill if it gets brought to the House floor for a vote.

In other words, the whole point of the bill was political posturing to try winning folks in the Democratic base over and to hopefully swell the ranks with immigrants — legal and otherwise — to help cinch victories in upcoming elections. When they are called out on it and asked to actually back this up with action, they bail.

Sounds about right.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said he plans to bring the bill up for a vote, and Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said it’s time for Democrats to show where they stand.

“Democrats have been trying to make July 4th about abolishing ICE, which is a radical, extreme position that would lead to open borders and undermine America’s national security,” Scalise told The Hill. “I think it’s the wrong approach. I think everyone ought to be on record about where they stand on that issue.”

Reps. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), and Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) introduced the Establishing a Humane Immigration Enforcement System Act on Thursday, which would “establish a Commission tasked with establishing a humane immigration enforcement system” and “terminate Immigration and Customs Enforcement,” among other purposes.

“We know Speaker [Paul] Ryan is not serious about passing our ‘Establishing a Humane Immigration Enforcement System Act,’ so members of Congress, advocacy groups, and impacted communities will not engage in this political stunt,” the representatives told The Hill. “If Speaker Ryan puts our bill on the floor, we plan to vote no and will instead use the opportunity to force an urgently needed and long-overdue conversation on the House floor.”

Isn’t funny how quickly the tune changed when their feet were held to the fire? Instead of backing up their claims, they just want to talk a big game and hope folks fall for their deceptions, the appearance of getting something done.

Shameful.

Kellyanne’s Husband Goes NUCLEAR on Twitter, Calls Trump The ‘C’ Word

George Conway’s latest lambasting of the President surely has him sleeping on the couch.

George Conway

As the nation begins to dig in their heels in regard to their views of President Trump, we are undoubtedly set for a prolonged social and cultural battle. Our nation was already deeply divided prior to the release of the Mueller report; itself a lightning rod of controversy involving political biases, alleged spying, campaign rivals, and flaring tempers.  These facets of the already-wild story were then amplified, predictably, by an unkempt and irresponsible mainstream media simply for the sake of cashing in on the outrage that they themselves fanned the flames of. This national nightmare has created its fair share of “divided households” as well, with the most famous example being that of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway and her husband George, himself a longtime figure in Washington DC. The fairer Conway is, obviously, still on Team Trump, while George has roaring against the President on Twitter at a breakneck pace. His latest insult, coming just hours after the release of the redacted Mueller report, may be his most stern yet. “What the Mueller report disturbingly shows, with crystal clarity, is that today there is a cancer in the presidency: President Donald J. Trump,” Conway wrote in a Washington Post opinion-editorial. “Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay.” Conway’s insinuation is nearly verbatim to the slant of the mainstream media, who also see the Mueller report as the beginning and not the end. Of course, this runs counter to what both the President and Attorney General Bill Barr have stated repeatedly over the course of the last several hours.

Would-Be NYC Cathedral Arsonist Had Just Purchased a One Way Ticket To…

The story just keeps getting stranger…and more worrisome as well.

Rome vatican

As with just about any news these days, there was an almost immediate sprouting of conspiracy theories surrounding the blaze at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this week. For many social media users, the coincidence of the inferno occurring on Monday of Holy Week was just too much.  They saw this as “a sign”, and almost certainly as a “nefarious act”, possibly played out in order to spark some sort of Holy War. The theories get much wilder than that as well, but we dare not wade too deep into the conspiratorial waters, lest we want to be blacklisted by some clandestine “fact checking” gestapo. Despite the insistence of investigators that there was no reason to believe foul play was at work, the internet’s darker corners remained skeptical.  Then, came the story of a man in NYC who was arrested after walking into Saint Patrick’s Cathedral with two cans of gas, some lighter fluid, and a lighting device. This sparked a whole new realm of conspiracy for many…and that was before we knew about his travel plans. Marc Lamparello, a former director of music at a New Jersey Roman Catholic Church, was arrested at the historic St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City on Wednesday night after security stopped him with two cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, police said. Sources with the New York City Police Department told ABC News that he also purchased a one-way ticket to Rome, which was scheduled to depart from Newark, New Jersey, on Thursday evening. Lamparello, 37, was charged with attempted arson, reckless endangerment and some violations of city codes. He told police that he was taking a shortcut through church to reach his minivan, which he claimed had run out of gas. Police then inspected Lamparello’s vehicle, determined that it…
