President Trump Planning To Extend Invitation To Reporters For Tour Of Border Detention Centers

Maybe now they’ll stop harping on this non-story.

President Trump spoke on Sunday stating that he plans to invite reporters to go take a tour of the border detention centers holding illegal immigrants at the southern borders so they can see the kind of conditions these folks are living in for themselves.

All of this comes hot on the heels of the massive controversy stirred up by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who compared the detention centers to “concentration camps,” which also drew quite a bit of well-deserved heat for the freshman congresswoman.

Here’s TheBlaze with more details:

According to CNN, President Trump was asked by a reporter whether he would visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility in Clint, Texas, which The New York Times recently described as “the public face of the chaos at America’s southern border.”

“What we’re going to do is I’m going to start showing some of these detention centers, because — to the press — I want the press to go in and see them,” the president explained.

President Trump said he had already spoken with Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Mark Morgan and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan to make arrangements for the press tours.

“We’re going to have some of the press go in because they are crowded, and we’re the ones complaining about they’re crowded,” Trump said.

“They’re crowded because people come up, but now thanks to Mexico, it’s slowing down greatly, and I think you’ll start seeing some very good numbers,” the president continued. “But it is crowded. But we want to have the press go in and see because you know what The New York Times, it really is fake news.”

Secretary McAleenan spoke with ABC News on Sunday saying that the Times’ story on the conditions at these facilities was “unsubstantiated,” noting there is adequate food and water available for those who were being held at the center. He also said the facility is cleaned every day.

This is just another cog in the wheel of the liberal machine that is desperately attempting to destroy Trump and his administration any way they can because of the upcoming election.

Manufacturing controversies where none exists has become a favorite activity of the radical left in this country. Hopefully, once reporters get a look at the detention centers for themselves the madness will stop.

Protests And Riots Now Being Blamed On Coronavirus Shutdowns

Published

on

All of the violence, rioting, and looting that is exploding across the country due to the death of George Floyd is now being blamed on another set of factors that might help explain why things are so intense. According to psychologists and pandemic researchers, things are so bad right now due to everyone being cooped up for months during the coronavirus lockdowns that had taken place across the United States earlier this Spring. Historian John Berry, who has written numerous books on the subject of past pandemics, said, “I do think the pandemic aggravated things.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Tension built up during the lockdowns due to the massive joblessness — especially for those making less than $40,000 a year, African Americans disproportionately getting sick from the virus, and people being shut in the house for months, Berry said. “One can’t understate the role of pandemic in the protests,” said Alec MacGillis, former Baltimore Sun reporter, on Twitter. “For weeks, people have been told to stay home. They’ve had no social contact with large groups, which humans crave. Now, they can.” If you take a look at Minnesota, where the incident with Floyd took place, folks had been social distancing there for almost two full months. There were no bars, no hair salons, or restaurants or movie theaters open during that time. In fact, they weren’t allowed to open until the beginning of June, and even then there are a lot of restrictions still in effect. “No doubt in my mind that the pandemic has eroded people’s capacity to tolerate additional frustration and anxiety,” Dr. Kenneth Eisold, a practicing psychoanalyst, told the Washington Examiner. “I also suspect that the riots reflect an unconscious protest against the lockdown.” Dr. Joe Pierre, a health science clinical professor with UCLA, said…

Rod Rosenstein Says If He Knew Then, What He Knows Now, He Wouldn’t Have Signed Carter Page FISA Warrant

Published

on

Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has come out and admitted that if he possessed the knowledge he now has, back before signing the FISA warrant for Carter Page, he would never have signed it. Well, you know what they say. Hindsight is 20/20. Everything had a tendency to look clearer when you reflect back on it after the fact. The problem, of course, is that by then it is too late. This is why it is important to operate from a set of well-grounded principles that will guide you when things seem unclear. Just a thought. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Rosenstein, who also appointed special counsel Robert Mueller while overseeing the Russia investigation after then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself, testified in a public session with the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that he was unaware of the serious flaws with the Page FISA process that were uncovered by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz. “If you knew then what you know now, would you have signed the warrant application?” Graham asked. Rosenstein replied: “No, I would not.” Graham went on to ask if the reason why he wouldn’t have signed it looking back on it now was because Mr. Horowitz found that exculpatory information was withheld from the court. “Among other reasons, yes sir,” Rosenstein said. The report from Horowitz slammed the Justice Department and the FBI for what it called “17 significant errors and ommissions” related directly to the FISA warrants against Page in 2016 and 2017, along with the bureau’s heavy reliance upon the dossier put together by British spy Christopher Steele, which is also considered to be flawed. Steele was commissioned to put together the package containing his “research” by Fusion GPS, which was funded by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign,…
