FLASHBACK: Nancy Pelosi Felt Very Differently About Immigrant Child Detainment in 2014

Published

on

As if the stunning hypocrisy from the left wasn’t already mind-numbing enough, someone has dug up Nancy Pelosi’s comments after visiting a child detainment facility in 2014, and they certainly have not aged well.

The Daily Wire reports that in June of 2014, after a visit to a border detainment facility, Pelosi struck a very different tone about the children detained there than what we’re hearing from her party this week.

Of course, this isn’t that surprising considering it was Democrats who wanted children to be detained separately from their parents to begin with, and, big shocker, the exact same thing was happening under the Obama administration’s watch as well.

Another day, another glaring Democrat double-standard. What else is new?

Here’s the story:

In another case of “you just can’t make this stuff up” (see the fake news “child separated from mother” photo for another example), Pelosi told the press on June 28, 2014, after visiting a jam-packed illegal immigrant detention center, that what “some view as a crisis,” she viewed as “an opportunity” to continue to show our humanity. Rather than “politicizing” the situation and decrying the state of the detained children, as she and her colleagues have done in increasingly extreme terms over the last week, she said what she witnessed at the detention center was “dazzling.”

“What we just saw was so stunning,” she said. “If you believe, as we do, that every child, every person, has a spark of divinity in them and is therefore worthy of respect, what we saw in those rooms was dazzling – a sparkling array of God’s children, worthy of respect. So we have to use, as was said this morning, the crisis that some view as a crisis – and it does have crisis qualities – as an opportunity to show who we are as Americans: that we do respect people for their dignity and their worth; that we know how to get the job done, that relates to, again stopping trafficking. Because that’s one of the fundamentals that will reinforce the law.”

While we should move families as quickly as possible, she said, we must make sure to obey the immigration laws and not “rush” solutions.

“We have the law that established the Department of Homeland Security. We have the Flores decision. So the balance that we’re trying to create is to move these kids, these young people, these families as quickly as possible into another setting. We have to do it in a way that meets certain standards – and not, in our rush, not do the best we can for them,” she said.

Good grief, someone get this woman copies of her own comments! We understand that Pelosi probably doesn’t remember making these comments, but you think someone on her staff might have kept track.

But what does it really matter, anyway? An elephant may never forget, but apparently, donkeys have incredibly short-term memories.

Obama Remarks on GOP Voting Law Gets Fierce Rebuke

The former President was simply WRONG, and he got called out for it.

Published

Of all the large narratives still churning in the political ether these days, the fight for electoral security continues to produce some of the most heated narratives that we’ve seen.

Republican lawmakers around the nation have been working to tighten voting regulations across the board after the security of the 2020 election became a hot topic of conversation.   They claim that voter fraud is an issue that could affect any and all elections for years to come, and their hope it to get out ahead of that.

The Democrats, however, have suggested that this electoral integrity stance is merely a ploy to disenfranchise voters in predominately Democratic districts, alleging that voter fraud is not a prevalent enough issue for this response.

This week, former President Barack Obama weighed in on the debate, and his comments are causing him to take serious heat.

Former President Barack Obama slammed Republicans as “systematically” trying to prevent Americans from voting in a campaign speech for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.

“All across the country, Democrats are trying to make it easier to vote, not make it harder to vote, and push back on Republicans who are trying to systematically prevent ordinary citizens from making their voices heard,” Obama said Saturday in Richmond.

“You have to ask yourself, why is it Republicans don’t want you to vote?” he asked.

Glenn Youngkin, the candidate running against McAuliffe, fired back at the former Commander in Chief through a spokesperson.

“Glenn has addressed this multiple times before Obama came to Virginia to bail Terry out, but instead of writing a story about the former President’s false statements, the press is indulging Terry’s fantasies and lies because he can’t run on his failed record and radical vision for the future,” Youngkin spokesperson Christian Martinez told Fox News.

Obama’s office did not immediately respond to a request for clarification on his comments.

Biden Administration Halts Release of JFK Files

Their excuse wasn’t sitting well with some in Congress, however.

Published

on

We cannot examine the modern day conspiracy theory culture in America without giving credit to perhaps the most pervasive and permeating conspiracy-laden event of the last century:  The death of US President John F. Kennedy.

Kennedy, who was shot and killed in his motorcade, and whose alleged killer was then killed during a perp walk, was one of the most influential Presidents of his day, and his disdain for parts of the American government itself has led many to believe that he may have been taken out by forces within the political or intelligence spheres.

Now, some 57 years later, the Biden administration is still interested in keeping some aspects of the event under wraps, and it’s irking Americans who’ve long clamored for transparency. 

Secret files concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy will not be released to the public by next week after all. The national archivist asked for more time to review them, White House officials announced, blaming the delay in part on the pandemic, CBS reports. President Biden issued a statement calling postponement “necessary to protect against identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or the conduct of foreign relations.” The files will instead be released in two installments, per the Washington Post.

Not everyone was buying it, however.

The editor of JFKFacts.org, who once sued the CIA for assassination documents, said it’s clear the Biden administration isn’t going to follow the law. Calling Biden’s statement a “COVID dog ate my homework” excuse, Jefferson Morley said Congress should intervene. A group of House members wrote Biden this month calling on him to release the 520 documents that are still secret and 15,834 others that have been made public but include redactions. “Excessive secrecy surrounding President Kennedy’s assassination continues to inspire doubt in the minds of the American public and has a profound impact on the people’s trust in their government,” they wrote.

Theories on who was ultimately responsible for the death of JFK vary wildly, with everyone from the CIA to a Cuban hit squad being pondered as possible perpetrators.
