Longtime Democratic Assemblyman Tells Chuck Schumer He’s Supporting GOP. The Reason Why Is Perfect.

Published

on

Dov Hikind, a New York state assemblyman, recently gave House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer the business after receiving a mailer from him asking for donations, stating that from now on, he would be supporting Republicans until the Democratic Party returns to “sanity and honesty.”

Hate to break it to this fellow, but he’s in for a really long wait. Might want to just permanently jump ship and swim for shore.

Hikind made his announcement on Thursday in a Facebook post, noting that Schumer’s mailer was “riddled with attacks on the ‘hard right’ but omitted vital information.”

“Senator Schumer, in your letter you promise to fight for Democratic values and go on at great length to fully villainize the current administration, but you left out certain facts that my fellow Democrats, to say nothing of all Americans, should also be aware of,” Hikind’s statement begins.

Hikind lists the following achievements by the Trump administration that have been good for America:

A strong economy, which economists project will grow even more.

Low unemployment rate and its record low among minorities.

U.S. energy dominance.

Strong U.S.-Israel relationship.

Dismantling of the Iran nuclear deal
.
The administration’s opposition to harmful reverse-discrimination criteria that universities can use.

Denuclearization of North Korea.

Tax cuts.

“You ask for a contribution, but the Democratic Party—which I am a lifelong member of—is currently betraying the ideals that our party once stood for: American values,” Hikind writes. “You yourself proposed that Representative Ellison head the party, but you must surely know that Ellison has stood with our nation’s leading hate monger Louis Farrakhan.”

Hikind continues: “Senator Schumer, as a fellow Democrat, I ask you to work to restore sanity and honesty to our party so I can feel good about supporting it fully. Until then, I’m afraid the Republicans have my support.”

It’s nice to see a Democrat who is actually somewhat fair and balanced in their approach to the Trump administration. Rather than openly condemning everything he accomplishes or just blindly accepting everything he does, it seems Hikind actually engages issues one at a time. That’s refreshing.

Let’s hope the left learns a lesson or two from Hikind and scale back the nuttiness that has come to define their party as of late.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
