When NY Senator/Presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand was appointed to the U.S. Senate, Hispanics went nuts because she was so anti-illegal immigration. Now the political hack is talking about tearing down the existing border barriers.

On Thursday, Twitchy said that Democrat White House hopeful Beto O’Rourke told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that he would tear down the parts of the border wall already up and in place.  Sensing that stance would be popular with the extreme leftists Sen.Gillibrand one of what seems like the thousand Democrats considering a run for the White House in 2020, said she could support O’Rourke’s call to tear down existing barriers.

If there was ever any doubt that Democrats support open borders, this should remove them.

“I’d have to ask folks in that part of the country to see whether the fencing that exists today is helpful or unhelpful,” she told Fox News.  “I could look at it and see which part he means and why, and if it makes sense, I could support it.”

Fox News added:

O’Rourke, who’s seriously mulling a White House bid of his own, said Thursday in an interview with NBC News that he’d “absolutely … take the wall down,” referring to the barrier by El Paso, Texas.

O’Rourke, who came close to upsetting GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in last November’s Senate election in Texas, argued that the existing 600 miles of wall and fencing along the 2,000-mile border have “not in any demonstrable way made us safer.”

Republicans quickly criticized O’Rourke, charging that he embraces open borders.

Quite an agenda for the Democrats, wouldn’t you say?

While speaking in New Hampshire, Gillibrand also claimed the border crisis is “manufactured.”  In other words, she thinks it’s all FAKE!

“I think the only national emergency is the humanitarian crisis that President Trump has created at our border by separating families from children and treating people who need our help inhumanely. I think this is manufactured, I think this [is] inappropriate,” she said.

Odd, we don’t recall her angst when Obama separated families at the border…

Here’s the strange part, before she advocated open borders she was strongly opposed to illegal immigration.

In Jan 2009 when she was appointed to take over for Hillary, the NY Times wrote:

During her one term in the House of Representatives, from a largely rural, traditionally Republican district, Kirsten E. Gillibrand was on safe political ground adopting a tough stance against illegal immigration.

Ms. Gillibrand, a Democrat, opposed any sort of amnesty for illegal immigrants, supported deputizing local law enforcement officers to enforce federal immigration laws, spoke out against Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s proposal to allow illegal immigrants to have driver’s licenses and sought to make English the official language of the United States.

The Spanish language daily El Diario gave the Senator front page coverage. They ran. Kirsten Gillibrand’s photo on their front page with the blaring headline “ANTI INMIGRANTE” (anti-immigrant)

Even New York Assemblyman Peter Rivera, a fellow Democrat and  the senior Hispanic in the state legislature, issued a statement condemning Gillibrand for among other things, wanting to “use local police to enforce federal immigration law, against the advice of state law enforcement groups,” and supporting “more walls and guards on our southern border.” 

She wanted more walls, but since then the direction of the winds shifted, the Democrats became the no borders party, and the spineless Gillibrand changed her stance.

How high does the body count have to get before she recognizes that a problem exists? A body count doesn’t really matter to the NY Senator, Gillibrand is a political hack who changes her positions whenever the wind direction changes.

Beto Seemingly Calls for WAR Over Mueller Report Secrecy

The left just had to find some way to make the idea of transparency seem sensational, didn’t they?

Published

Beto O'Rourke

As the nation patiently awaits the findings of the Special Counsel report, a debate is raging. On both sides of the aisle, we are hearing that transparency is key.  Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General and self-proclaimed “heat shield” for Robert Mueller, has expressed his concerns over tarnishing the reputations of those not accused of a crime. The rest of America seems fairly well convinced, and rightly so, that there should be unfettered access to the report. And while this is undoubtedly a widely felt sentiment, the radical left just had to find a way to make it seem sensational. Cue 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke: “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are not made public, saying, “This is an unprecedented attack on this country and on our democracy, and we are owed the facts. And if we do not receive them, 243 years in, there’s nothing that guarantees us a 244th.” O’Rourke is undoubtedly suggesting that a Civil War or revolution could take place over something that everyone already wants. Not only have a number of democrats parroted the “everyone should get to see everything” line, but they’ve done so in complete agreement with Trump-appointed Attorney General Bill Barr. For Beto to go nuclear in this statement is beyond bizarre, and sounds more like a coaxed soundbite than his true sentiment on the subject.

Mueller Report Findings Expected by Congress Sunday

Monday morning’s water cooler chit chat has already been decided.

Is our long national nightmare actually over?  Well, that depends on who you ask today. For many, the completion of the Mueller report on Friday, without any additional indictments being suggest by the Special Counsel, was a huge win for President Trump.  It meant that there wasn’t evidence sufficient to bring charges against the President…perhaps. We should remember that the DOJ’s longstanding belief was that a sitting President could not be indicted. On the left side of the aisle, however, a tense wait has begun, with the Attorney General expected to hand off a summation of Mueller’s findings to Congress any minute. Attorney General William Barr was expected to release his first summary of Mueller’s findings on Sunday, people familiar with the process said, on what lawmakers anticipated could be a day of reckoning in the two-year probe into President Donald Trump and Russian efforts to elect him. Since receiving the report Friday, Barr has been deciding how much of it Congress and the public will see. Of course, for some democrats, this simply wouldn’t cut it. “I suspect that we’ll find those words of transparency to prove hollow, that in fact they will fight to make sure that Congress doesn’t get this underlying evidence,” Rep. Adam Schiff of California, chairman of the House intelligence committee, said on ABC’s “This Week.” His plan: Ask for information and if that’s denied, “subpoena. If subpoenas are denied, we will haul people before the Congress. And yes, we will prosecute in court as necessary to get this information.” For now, we will just wait and see. We do know one thing for certain:  Monday morning around the water coolor is going to be a happenin’ spot.
