ICYMI: Far-Left Democrat Senators Demand Judge Answer For Being Catholic
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.”
DCCC fundraising email on Kavanaugh is wildly misleading. It says McConnell is resuming Kavanaugh hearings without hearing the allegations And that Kavanaugh could be confirmed in “a matter of hours”

Pelosi on Kavanaugh: “I think he disqualified himself with those statements and the manner in which he went after the Clintons and the Democrats … There was a way for him to go forward with dignity and without jeopardizing his own objectivity in the public mind.” pic.twitter.com/IZNu8NnR0O

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.
A Texas federal judge has ruled the ENTIRE Affordable Care Act unconstitutional because of the GOP tax law's gutting of the individual mandate.

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:
BREAKING: A Texas judge just sided with Trump and the Republicans to rule the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional. This endangers the health care of tens of millions of Americans, especially those with pre-existing conditions. We *must* fight back to save our health care.

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.
