ICYMI: Far-Left Democrat Senators Demand Judge Answer For Being Catholic

Where are Congressional Catholics to call these senators out? Doesn’t anybody have a spine?

It’s not okay to be Christian in Donald Trump’s America.

Just ask Democrat Senators Mazie Hirono of Hawaii and Kamala Harris of California.

They want a Catholic judge to answer for being a member of the Knights of Columbus.

No. They want him to resign his affiliation!

From Daily Caller:

Two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are pressing a nominee for the Nebraska federal trial court about his membership in the Knights of Columbus, a fraternal service organization of the Catholic Church.

Democratic Sens. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii and Kamala Harris of California submitted written questions in December to Brian Buescher, an Omaha lawyer nominated to the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska, proposing that he resign his affiliation with the knights, which they call an “all male society” that “has taken a number of extreme positions” on social questions.

[…]

“The Knights of Columbus is a Roman Catholic service organization with approximately two million members worldwide,” Buescher wrote in response to Hirono and Harris’ questions. “The organization has a religious and charitable purpose. I joined the Knights of Columbus when I was 18 years old and have been a member ever since. My membership has involved participation in charitable and community events in local Catholic parishes.”

Kamala is one of the top ethics violators of 2018.

From Daily Wire:

According to a nonpartisan watchdog group, two Democratic senators were the “top ethics violators of 2018” because they solicited donations by trumpeting their antagonism to Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation during the hearings to confirm him. Those two senators were — drum roll — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

According to the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), the “winners” are Harris and Warren.

Is that who you guessed?

Both are potential presidential nominees.

Although, both have dropped in popularity lately due to the rise of Texas Senate loser Robert O’Rourke.

FACT has exhibited its non-partisan perspective before, having cited Republican speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as some of the “top ethics violators of 2018” because they did not pursue allegations of the sexual harassment of congressional staffers and interns with enough vigor.

Until Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, whom President Trump refers to as “Pocahontas,” makes her presidential bid official, she has to do everything possible to remain in the public eye.

This time, though, Warren may have gone too far.

She says Trump inspires “domestic right-wing terrorism.”

Yeah, for real.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke at American University Washington College of Law in a speech billed as foreign policy-focused; however, it included criticism of President Donald Trump and his policies and claimed he promotes white nationalism and encourages “domestic right-wing terrorism.”

Warren: “He cozies up to white nationalists. He undermines the free press and incites violence against journalists.

The 2016 election provided a stark reminder that we must remain vigilant and fight for our democracy every single day,” Warren said. “That starts with protecting our elections and democratic processes, and making it clear that there will be severe consequences for those – foreign or domestic – who meddle, hack, or undermine them.

It means ensuring a meaningful opportunity for every American citizen to vote. And it means fighting for equal justice and protection under the law for all.

It also requires us to speak out against hateful rhetoric that fuels domestic terrorism of all kinds, whether in San Bernadino or Charleston, Orlando or Charlottesville, Fort Hood or Pittsburgh. We must speak plainly about all of these incidents.

Just like the hateful terrorism of Al Qaeda and ISIS, domestic right-wing terrorism is completely incompatible with our American values.

Let’s start with a serious problem: Around the world, democracy is under assault. Authoritarian governments are gaining power.

Right-wing demagogues are gaining strength. Movements toward openness and pluralism have stalled and begun to reverse.

Inequality is rapidly growing, transforming rule by-the-people into rule by-wealthy-elites.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (CA) is likely to once again become Speaker, despite copious amounts of backlash.

According to Pelosi, all Republicans are “despicable.”

WATCH:

A Texas judge just sided with the Trump administration in declaring Obamacare unconstitutional.

Not just some parts of it, either. ALL OF IT.

This means we could be headed back to the Supreme Court.

This time, though, liberals should be really scared because there are now more constitutionalists on the bench than not.

President Trump tweeted:

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, virulent anti-Trumper: “Today’s ruling is an assault on 133 million Americans with preexisting conditions, on the 20 million Americans who rely on the ACA’s consumer protections for health care, and on America’s faithful progress toward affordable health care for all Americans.”

Sen. Kamala Harris whined:

Kamala wants to implement universal basic income.

It is literally free money.

UBI would give new meaning to the phrase “reckless government spending,” not to mention taxes would spike around the nation.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
