Walls Don’t Work? Then Why Did Dems Build GIANT Wall to Protect Their 2016 National Convention?

The idea that walls “don’t work” is fundamentally erroneous, and nothing more than a political talking point.

Nearly to a person, Democrats today are blabbering that “walls don’t work” to prevent President Donald Trump from getting a “win” on the budget. But, if “walls don’t work,” why did the Democrats build a giant wall to keep protesters away from their 2016 national convention?

Apparently, the walls the Democrats built around the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia in 2016 was the sort of border security that they could sign onto.

Of course, the Democrats were really trying to keep out undesirables. And by that they meant Bernie Sanders supporters.

As the Daily Caller reported:

Many of the protesters who gathered outside of the barrier were supporters of Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Some Democrats, like Brady Brassfield, told WJLA they felt “cheated” after seeing the extensive security constructed by the DNC.

“They don’t want to hear what we want to say or see what we have out here, really,” Brassfield said.

No doubt, Mr. Brassfield.

The Democrats also did not want to hear what Bernie Sanders had to say in 2016, either. It was all about the coronation of Hillary Clinton, so contrary views were not wanted.

Indeed, the Democrats went nuts on security for their 2016 convention. The Party actually erected about four miles of fencing in concentric stages to keep the riff-raff out of their august presence.

In July of 2016, for instance, The Observer wrote:

Much has been made of the gigantic four-mile wall that the security people have built to shield DNC attendees from the robust protests taking place throughout Philadelphia. Even People magazine noted that high-profile supporters of Bernie Sanders cannot get anywhere near the delegates they’re hoping to influence and several have been arrested trying to scale the 8-foot fence that rings not just the stadium proper, but a giant area outside the stadium.
According to the US Secret Service, it was a nearly unprecedented effort to shield convention-goers from the riffraff. Special Agent James Henry told NBC10.com that it would include “no-scale fencing to enclose the Wells Fargo Center and Xfinity Live!”

What may look like a boring story about securing an area during a naturally contentious event is of course irresistible because of the irony of the Democrats, who have made sport of Donald Trump’s focus on building a wall on America’s southern border, being protected by a wall surrounding their convention.

I would say hypocrisy, as opposed to irony.

EXPOSED: Bernie Sanders’ New Speechwriter Once Praised Maduro’s ‘Economic Miracle’

He did WHAT!?

John Salvatore

Published

There are few people currently on planet earth who are as despicable as Venezuelan tyrant Nicolas Maduro.

Due to socialism, people of his country are forced to search for meals from the back of garbage trucks. They even look for water in sewer drains.

That, apparently, did not matter to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and his 2020 presidential team.

How else can it be explained why they would hire a man who once praised Maduro, noting that “his brand of socialism achieved real economic gains?”

Click that link above to read about it.

What’s more, is that David Sirota hoped the Boston bomber was a “white American.”

You couldn’t make that up if you tried.

Will Democrats care enough to hold Bernie and company accountable? That was rhetorical.

When liberal protesters were asked if they would trade President Trump for Maduro, some people actually said, “yes.”

Think about that for a second. How uninformed can a person be?

From Daily Caller:

Hundreds of protesters descended on D.C. at Lafayette Square near the White House on Saturday to show their support for Venezuela’s embattled socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.

The “Hands Off Venezuela” protesters are not only against any sort of intervention in Venezuela, but many actually believe Maduro is a good leader.

WATCH:

Bernie’s big into “saving” the planet, yet has no problem flying private.

But spending $300,000 on private flights in a single month? Is this guy a rockstar?

From Daily Wire:

“According to federal campaign finance reports, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator’s official 2018 Senate campaign committee, spent $297,685.50 with Apollo Jets, a private charter jet service headquartered in New York,” the website VtDigger.com reported. “The report does not break down the number of trips or where they were taken. The check was issued on Oct. 10, according to the report.”

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told VtDigger.com. “This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” she said.

Jones said Sanders used private jets “to allow the senator to campaign in all of the states where candidates wanted his help and get back to Vermont in order to join the Vermont Democratic Party coordinated campaign’s final GOTV efforts. As Bernie often said while encouraging voters to get involved leading up to Election Day, this was the most important midterm election in our lifetimes and he wanted to have maximum impact.”

Sanders probably would’ve been the Democrat nominee for president in 2016 had the Democrat National Committee not worked their “magic” for Hillary Clinton.

Would Bernie have defeated Donald Trump? We’ll never know.

But what about two years from now?

Does Sanders have a chance?

WATCH: Elizabeth Warren Blames Own Family for Lying to Her About Being Native American

That’s not the best color on you, Liz!

Published

Massachusetts Senator and 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test didn’t go as planned.

She probably figured it would definitively state she was Native American. It didn’t, though.

At best, Warren, whom President Trump refers to as “Pocahontas,” is 1/1024th Indian.

Of course, that didn’t stop Warren from claiming Indian on her state bar exam.

Now, Warren is blaming her own family.

From Daily Wire:

During a Monday night town hall event hosted by CNN’s Jake Tapper, 2020 presidential hopeful Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was asked about her “lack of presidential tact” in handling her apparently phony claims of Native American heritage.

Warren, looking uncomfortable as she responded, seemingly blamed her family for lying to her about their heritage before pivoting to health care and other issues.

Man in audience: “How do you respond to people who think that, regardless of the underlying facts, the way you handled the question of your Native American heritage was tone deaf and indicative of a lack of presidential tact?

Warren: “Well, ya know, I grew up in Oklahoma. I learned about my family from my family. And, um, based on that, that’s just kind of who I am, and I do the best I can with it.

Warren said she never used her Native American background to get ahead in life.

She wasn’t being honest. In fact, she downright lied.

Fox News’ Brit Hume tweeted the details:

This is from Elizabeth Warren’s registration for the Texas Bar, filled out in her own hand and calling herself “American Indian.” She has insisted she never used that identity to “get ahead.” You decide.

This is proof that Warren is a fraud. It’s undeniable.

More from Daily Wire:

“Warren filled out the card by hand in neat blue ink and signed it,” The Washington Post reported. “Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.”

[…]

“The Texas bar registration card is significant, among other reasons, because it removes any doubt that Warren directly claimed the identity,” the Post added. “In other instances, Warren has declined to say whether she or an assistant filled out forms.”

Warren recently appeared on CNN. She spoke with Anderson Cooper.

During their interview, Warren appeared to not know how many branches of government there are.

Might be kind of important for a presidential candidate to know this.

Cooper: “Do you ever think, look, the realistic end game is that Republicans get two thirds of what they want and the Democrats have to settle for the shorter straw? Is that how the balance of power really works?

Warren: “Well, let’s talk about the balance of power. There are two coequal branches of government, the president of the United States and the Congress.

Of course, the three branches of government are legislative, judicial, and executive.

Democrat Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a similar “branches of government” problem not long ago.

Is there a patern here?

President Trump recently trolled Warren harder than he ever has.
