Recent polling has shown that Americans are extremely concerned with the state of our southern border, and the dangers of unchecked immigration.

Exacerbating these fears are a number of caravans of Central American migrants who are perhaps a scant few days away from reaching the southern border between the United States and Mexico.  The largest of these hordes has been estimated to be up 14,000 people strong, and have shown in previous border crossings that they are unwilling to take “no” for an answer.

With Americans becoming increasingly concerned over the possibility of a repeat performance somewhere in Texas, it’s no surprise that candidates the nation over are harping on immigration in their midterm election ads.

Unfortunately, one such piece tied to President Trump has struck a nerve.

NBC and Fox News said in separate statements on Monday that their networks will no longer air the Trump campaign’s racist anti-immigrant advertisement.

NBC was first to announce the change, doing so after a backlash over its decision to show the 30-second spot during “Sunday Night Football,” one of the highest rated programs on television.

“After further review,” NBC said, “we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have decided to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible.”

Fox soon followed suit.

“Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network,” ad sales president Marianne Gambelli told CNN in a statement.

The advertisement is being called “racist” outright by a number of stations, as it casts a frightening and intimidating pall against the hordes of Central American migrants steadily marching toward our borders.

Watchdog Group Says Trump Broke The Law By Withholding Aid From Ukraine

Published

on

The U.S. government’s congressional watchdog has determined that President Trump and his administration are guilty of breaking the law by withholding hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid from Ukraine during the summer of 2019. The Government Accountability Office published a nine-page report on Thursday that concluded the Officer of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act when it refused to release $214 million set aside as aide to Ukraine. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law,” the independent legislative branch agency concluded. “The Office of Management and Budget withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act. The withholding was not a programmatic delay. Therefore, we conclude that the Office of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act.” The determination comes the same day that the impeachment trial against President Trump related to allegations of abuse of power in Ukraine is set to kick off in the Senate. “The Constitution grants the President no unilateral authority to withhold funds from obligation,” the Government Accountability Office said. “Instead, Congress has vested the President with strictly circumscribed authority to impound, or withhold, budget authority only in limited circumstances as expressly provided in the Impoundment Control Act.” How much this information will impact the impeachment trial remains to be seen, but it’s definitely not going to make matters any easier for President Trump going forward.

Republican Senator Attacks CNN Reporter; Calls Him A ‘Liberal Hack’

Published

on

Sen. Martha McSally proved in a recent spat with a CNN reporter that she is not the kind of individual you want to mess with. McSally was asked about recent developments that have been unfolding would make her change her mind about impeaching President Trump. To say the answer was a resounding no would be an understatement. McSally ripped into the reporter calling him a “liberal hack.” Someone’s been taking lessons on counterpunching from President Trump. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: On Wednesday night, Rudy Giuliani’s Ukrainian associate Lev Parnas claimed that “Trump knew” about all of the shady efforts taking place in Ukraine, including the alleged stalking of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. Parnas said, “President Trump knew exactly what was going on. He was aware of all my movements. I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or the president.” On Thursday morning, CNN reporter Manu Raju tried to ask the Arizona Republican about the developments and how it could change her impeachment vote. He asked, “Senator McSally, should the Senate consider new evidence as part of the impeachment trial.” She responded, “Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I’m not talking to you.” Raju followed up, “You’re not going to comment.” McSally brushed him off and echoed her earlier retort of calling him a “liberal hack.” https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/1217822020848771074 McSally went on to double down on her claim about Manu being a liberal hack in a video posted to Twitter: https://twitter.com/SenMcSallyAZ/status/1217829609808547841 Well, she’s not wrong. Perhaps Manu is still in the first step of denial about the role he is playing in the modern media? Regardless, he certainly got served by McSally, extra crispy on both sides.
