Obama Mocks GOP for Putting Kids In ‘Pens,’ But There’s One HUGE Problem

Duuudddeee!

Barack Obama made his way to Detroit to campaign for Democrat candidates.

During his speech, he erred bigly.

Obama said, “I’d like to think there are compassionate conservatives out there who think there’s nothing compassionate about ripping immigrant children from the arms of their mothers at the border and putting them in pens.”

Barack must not understand what he’s saying or he’s being intentionally deceitful.

The problem with Obama’s comments?

From Daily Wire:

Obama was likely trying to make a point heard over and over again this campaign season: that there’s no such thing as a “good” Republican, because most conservatives will, at some point or another, praise President Donald Trump on a point of policy.

But there was one big problem with Obama’s point: those photos of kids in cages at the border that went viral during the battle over whether families seeking asylum at the United States’ border should be separated pending a hearing, were taken during Obama’s administration.

“The Obama-era photos were originally shot for the Associated Press by photographer Ross D. Franklin, during a Jun. 18, 2014 visit to the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) placement center in Nogales, Arizona,” Quartz, not exactly a right-leaning news outlet, claimed back in May when the photos were plastered across social media. “The shelters in those photos have since been closed.”

There’s no denying that President Trump’s immigration policy separated families at the border — or, at least those that presented themselves for asylum after crossing the border somewhere other than an official, legal, border crossing — but situations similar to the one depicted led to a decision in 2013 to ban holding complete families seeking asylum together in one location for any extended period of time.

President Trump can’t seem to find venues large enough to house the amount of supporters who want to see him speak.

Obama, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to have that problem.

While in Milwaukee, Obama spoke at a small high school gymnasium.

As you can see, the place is half-full.

Beto O’Rourke Drops Bombshell About Connection To Slavery

Where’s the liberal outrage?

Published

on

In a move that should, if the left were consistent, spell the end of his political aspirations, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke revealed that both he and his wife are descendants of slave owners. Yes, a consistent application of the beliefs of the modern-day progressive should see Beto dropping from the race and spending the rest of his life attempting to atone for the sins of his ancestors. Probably not going to actually happen though. You know, because hypocrisy or something. via The Daily Wire: The failed Texas Senate candidate, who is losing ground in the presidential race, made the revelation in a Medium post, saying that he was recently given documents that revealed his family’s past. “A paternal great-great-great grandfather of mine, Andrew Cowan Jasper, owned these two women in the 1850s,” O’Rourke wrote. “There are also records showing that a maternal great-great-great grandfather, Frederick Williams, most likely owned slaves in the 1860s (“most likely,” because we are not certain that the Frederick Williams who is my ancestor and the Frederick Williams who owned slaves are the same person, but there’s enough circumstantial data to lead me to conclude that it’s likely).” “Records also showed that Amy had an ancestor who owned slaves and another who was a member of the Confederate Army,” O’Rourke added. O’Rourke’s claim comes after the media last week tried to tie Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s opposition to reparations to the fact that his great-great-grandfathers owned slaves. When the media tried to push that narrative they were met with the fact that former President Barack Obama’s ancestors were slave owners. Sen. Kamala Harris’ ancestors also owned slaves. So where is all of the classic liberal outrage over these folks having this sort of bloodline? Surely they would have no problem striking at these kind…

Trump Administration Set To Carry Out Major Crackdown On Asylum Abuse

This is going to make liberals absolutely furious.

Published

on

The Trump administration has announced some major changes in the country’s current asylum policies that will inevitably lead to a sizable reduction in the number of individuals that are eligible for asylum who are trying to enter the country at the southern border. If you listen closely, you can hear the left already throwing a total fit over this, ready to compare the president to a whole plethora of deplorable fascist world leaders throughout history. via Daily Wire: “The new rule, published in the Federal Register, would require most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey,” Fox News reported. In a statement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) highlighted three limited exceptions: (1) an alien who demonstrates that he or she applied for protection from persecution or torture in at least one of the countries through which the alien transited en route to the United States, and the alien received a final judgment denying the alien protection in such country; (2) an alien who demonstrates that he or she satisfies the definition of “victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons” provided in 8 C.F.R. § 214.11; or, (3) an alien who has transited en route to the United States through only a country or countries that were not parties to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol, or the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The statement went on to detail that a very small minority of these individuals actually receive asylum, however, a large number of requests burdens the system and undermines its humanitarian purposes. The statement also notes the large number of requests…
