Rep. Maxine Waters: Public Harassment is the New #Resistance

Published

on

You can always count on Auntie Maxine to kick any objection to Trump administration policies up to 11, and, sure enough, following Sarah Sanders’ revelation that she was asked to leave a Washington DC area restaurant by an anti-Trump restaurant owner, Waters revealed over the weekend she thinks this is a great strategy for the left.

I am not aware of anyone on the left actually acknowledging the very serious hypocrisy of lauding a business owner for refusing to serve someone for personal moral reasons, but if this has occurred to Waters, she definitely doesn’t seem to care.

Rather, she thinks being harassed in public should be the new normal for members of the Trump administration.

Speaking to MSNBC on Saturday, she said, according to Breitbart:

I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it’s wrong for what they’re doing on so many fronts. They tend to not want to confront this president or even leave, but they know what they’re doing is wrong. I want to tell you, these members of his cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they won’t be able to go to a restaurant, they won’t be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store. The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re absolutely going to harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the president, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’ This is wrong. This is unconscionable. We can’t keep doing this to children.

Speaking of hypocrisy and at the risk of joining the chorus of broken records on the right persistently reiterating this point…this was happening under Obama and no one made a peep. 

It is also worthy of note that Waters’ comments about what the Trump administration is “doing to children” were made after Trump’s executive order that parents and children should be detained together. It is still unclear whether the executive order will hold legal water because the policy was sustained by a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Ruling in 2016, but it nonetheless essentially washes Trump’s hands clean of association with the policy, which didn’t need to happen anyway because…it was already happening. 

Sigh.

Anyway.

What, else, Auntie Maxine?

We’ve got to push back. We’ve got to say no. I, for example, have stepped way out there. I said this man needs to be impeached. I know a lot of people think we’re not ready to say that. Some people have said a long time ago he would become presidential. He will never be presidential. This man does not have any good values. I believe he needs to be impeached. As a matter of fact, a long time before he’s doing what he’s doing now with these children. I think he had done enough to undermine this country and to have us understand we cannot trust him, that we should have come with an impeachment resolution. So, I believe we cannot wait until the next presidential election. We have to resist him. I want to see him impeached.

Ah, that’s right. Waters has made it her singular goal as representative this term to chant “Impeach 45!” every chance she gets, sound reasoning not required.

Americans, Still Trapped in Afghanistan, Plead with Biden Administration

The trouble in Kabul continues…

Just because the news cycle is short and forgetful doesn’t mean that conditions are improving in stories that have fallen to the wayside.  This is just the new human attention span, and the marketing industry’s ability to hone in on the speed needed to stay ahead of your own thoughts.

And so, despite the unwillingness of the mainstream media to speak on the subject, there are still American citizens trapped under Taliban rule in Afghanistan, begging to be brought home.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) on Thursday released a letter to President Joe Biden penned by an American citizen from San Diego, California, who is still trapped in Afghanistan alongside his wife.

“I am pleading with you again as a fellow proud American and as a husband to help my wife and I get home from Afghanistan,” the American citizen wrote in the October 15 letter to President Biden, weeks after the Biden administration’s botched withdrawal from the Taliban-controlled country.

Their tale is harrowing.

The American explained that he and his wife risked their lives to get through Taliban checkpoints, only to discover that the October 4 flight was canceled “because passengers did not have visas for UAE, where the flight was to land.” Another flight left on October 11, but the American said they never received a call to go to the airport.

“The third scheduled for 13 October was apparently cancelled. We learned details of the latter flights from our Congressman, the Hon. Darrell Issa, who flew to Doha to meet us, and not from the DOS,” he continued, explaining these were not their only attempts made since August.

President Biden promised that US forces would remain in-country until each and every American can get home safely, but then abided by a Taliban deadline to evacuate, abandoning a great many Americans and our allied partners.

Arizona Takes Bold Action in Attempt to Block Biden Vax Mandate

BOOM!

Published

There is perhaps no more heated debate in our nation today than that which surrounds the COVID-19 vaccines, their safety, their efficacy, and their necessity.

Our country has long been home to an enormous anti-vaccine movement, which has its roots in both holistic medicine and the body sovereignty movement, with some taking extreme, conspiracy-laden views out on the fringes.

So when the COVID-19 vaccines began to arrive in the public space, there was already a rather effective network in place to oppose their use.  And, of course, the idea that these inoculations would be mandated by the federal government just sent these advocates into overdrive.

Now, in what is likely one of the most powerful responses to Biden’s mandate yet, the State of Arizona is turning to the courts.

Arizona’s attorney general on Friday filed a request for a temporary restraining order to stop the Biden administration implementing a controversial vaccine requirement as a lawsuit filed last month moves forward.

“Once a vaccine has been administered, it can never be undone,” Attorney General Mark Brnovich said in a statement announcing the move. “The COVID-19 vaccine mandate is one of the greatest infringements upon individual liberty, federalism, and the separation of powers by any administration in our country’s history.”

Arizona first sued in September after President Biden announced measures that will require federal workers and private sector workers in businesses with more than 100 employees be vaccinated or take a COVID test weekly. It is expected to affect more than 100 million Americans.

The Commander in Chief has been stern on the subject, however.

“We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden said from the White House. “This is not about freedom or personal choice. It’s about protecting yourself and those around you.”

The indignant nature of the federal response will not sit well with the anti-vaccine crowd.
