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.

Jon Voight Releases Awesome New Video Praising Trump, Left Will Hate It

Great video!

Published

on

Actor Jon Voight has not been shy about his support for President Trump, and he continues to be one of the few outspoken conservative voices in Hollywood, which in and of itself is a tough gig. Yet, no matter the hate he gets, he continues to fearlessly proclaim what he believes in, with no worry of the consequences. In fact, Voight just released a new video where he praises Donald Trump and slams folks on the left for their attacks on the president. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: Voight started by targeting the Left: This is not peace. This is not love; this is hate among the radical Left. No amount of “book-smart” will show the given policy of what truth stands for. Truth is a powerful emotion. Love is what we should be voting for, and I must say that we, the Republican party, have voted for renewal, for a place of safety, a community where all can have peace. But this is war among the Left; they have hate; it’s like a venom. No words of God, no words of love, but a radical emotion of hate. He segued to the president: “I’ve said this many times and I am saying it again from the deep truths of my heart and soul: President Trump is a man of truths, love and justice for the American people and also for the people of a sacred place: Israel. Not only does he love our country, the United States of America, but he has a love for the people of all nations. “ Voight concluded with the hope that members of the Left would put aside their hatred and stand for liberty and justice: “Let us pray for peace; let us pray for this country, that President Trump will take…

AOC’s At It Again. Look What She Wants To Be Abolished Now.

More nuttiness from the Peanut Gallery.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just cannot keep herself from saying something stupid to save her life. It’s become so common place to see a news story about something ridiculous that’s come out of her mouth that it almost feels odd when there’s not a story about her somewhere. AOC recently posted an Instagram Live Story, something she loves to do, despite how often she makes a fool of herself, mocking the U.S. voting system, calling for the abolishment of the Electoral College. These folks absolutely want to silence anyone and everyone who doesn’t live in a major urban center, which also happen to be run mostly by liberals. via The Daily Wire: “We’re coming to you live from the Electoral College,” Ocasio-Cortez said as she recorded an empty desert highway. “Many votes here as you can see — [it’s a] very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I mean, I can’t think of any other way, can you?” The self-proclaimed “radical” congresswoman cited a March 2019 report from New York Magazine’s daily Intelligencer newsletter titled “Here’s Every Defense of the Electoral College — and Why They’re All Wrong.” She subsequently noted that the report is for “all the Republicans getting big mad [because] the electoral college is, in fact, a scam.” Ocasio-Cortez touched on several intersecting points, all of which are based on the underlying idea that the American voting system is racist and therefore is discriminatory against minorities. “The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the electoral college effectively weights white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all are counted equally.” AOC went on to say, “You may have heard this Electoral College argument the most: that families…
