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.

Trending: Trump Posts Ominous Message to Twitter with Saturday Deadline

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.

WATCH: Reporters Disrespect America, Do the Unthinkable During National Anthem

Did they think we wouldn’t notice??

John Salvatore

Published

on

Before telling America he would compromise with Democrats to end the partial government shutdown, President Trump participated in a naturalization ceremony in the Oval Office.

No doubt a special moment for the new Americans.

LOOK:

The pledge of allegaince was quickly followed by the national anthem.

What were a couple reporters caught doing?

Focus on the left side of the screen…

WATCH (around 1:09:45 mark):

Did you catch it?

You can clearly see at least two reporters typing away on their phones.

Talk about disrespect!

Facepalm.

Compromise means something to most people. To Democrats, it literally means nothing.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s perfect tweet drives that point home.

LOOK:

Spot on!

Rubio on the border:

President Trump is adamant that he wins in all scenarios, especially when it involves a promise he made to the people who put him in office.

As far as the border wall goes, it appears Democrats are beginning to show signs of giving in to the president’s wishes.

Here’s the scoop…

From Free Beacon:

Some Democratic lawmakers are beginning to crack on their opposition to the wall.

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR): “Some fencing has uses. Some barriers are useful.

Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL): “If we have a partial wall, if we have fencing, if we have technology used to keep our border safe, all of that is fine.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY): “There are areas along the border where there are currently fences that are put up or barriers that are put up that need to be enhanced.

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD): “Certainly you need barriers and we support barriers.

Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD): “Certain physical barriers can make sense along the border, and a lot of places you already have that.

Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA): “I think there are parts of the border that would benefit from repairing fencing and other barricades that already exist there.

WATCH:

Trump addressed the nation on Tuesday night from the White House regarding the border crisis.

Democrats chose to give their rebuttal following the president’s speech.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) lived up to the hype.

Twitter noticed.

In short, the Democrat “leaders” put on a creepy performance.

From Fox News:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Tuesday night that President Trump used his prime-time Oval Office address to “manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention from the turmoil in his Administration.”

In a response delivered jointly with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Schumer called on Trump to approve legislation ending the partial government shutdown “while allowing debate over border security to continue.”

“We can re-open the government and continue to work through disagreements about policy,” Schumer said. “We can secure our border without an expensive, ineffective wall. And, we can welcome legal immigrants and refugees without compromising safety and security. The symbol of America should be the Statue of Liberty, not a thirty-foot wall.”

Pelosi only likes facts her party creates.

She hates actual facts.

Classic lefty, huh?

From Daily Wire:

In a tense meeting with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen about the U.S.-Mexico border — in which Nielsen was spieling out a slew of facts (the non-fungible kind) — Pelosi interrupted to declare: “I reject your facts.”

“The clash between the top House Democrat and a key member of President Trump’s Cabinet occurred during a Wednesday meeting in the White House amid the impasse over the government shutdown, with Trump standing firm and demanding $5 billion for the border wall,” Fox News reported.

Just a few years ago, Schumer spoke the same way President Trump speaks now about illegal immigration.

Just goes to show how political the border wall has become.

Well said, Chuck!

The folks at Body Language Ghost are back again.

They’ve analyzed big names in the past, but their targets today are Democrats Schumer and Nancy Pelosi (CA).

The pair recently met with President Trump in the Oval Office.

According to Ghost, Trump set them up.

Nancy and Chuck’s body language suggests they didn’t know the media was going to be in the room and they weren’t prepared.

WATCH:

Did you know America has three coasts?

California’s Pelosi has apparently just clued the rest of us in on a monumental secret.

The next Speaker of the House struggled with U.S. geography on Thursday as she once again announced her opposition to a wall along the border with Mexico.

We, most of us, speaking for myself, consider the wall immoral, ineffective and expensive, and the President said – he promised – he also promised Mexico would pay for it.

So even if they did, it’s immoral still, and then they’re not going to pay for it. So that isn’t how I would interpret a congressional – a continuing resolution.

[…]

We have a responsibility, all of us, to secure our borders, North, South, and coming in by plane on our coasts, three coasts–North, South and West–and that’s the responsibility we honor. But we do so by honoring our values as well.

Ocasio-Cortez Admits On Camera She Supports Anti-Semitic Women’s March (Video)

It’s unreal. Alexandria gets away with EVERYTHING!

John Salvatore

Published

on

The Democrat Party has a huge problem with anti-Semitism. People who follow politics and are honest with themselves can come to that conclusion.

Freshman Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) are two of the absolute worst offenders.

But they are hardly the only ones.

Fellow Freshman socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is now openly embracing the Women’s March, despite its leaders’ anti-Semitic remarks.

On Saturday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) embraced the anti-Semitic Women’s March, just days after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and other left-wing organizations cut ties with the movement over blatant anti-Semitism.

[…]

Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory recently defended calling Louis Farrakhan the “greatest of all time,” and refused to affirm Israel’s right to exist in two separate interviews.

Anti-Semitism within the Women’s March is so blatant that the DNC and far-left Emily’s List cut ties with the organization last week.

Enter Ocasio-Cortez, who wouldn’t answer when asked the question: “Why are you standing with people who openly support Hamas, a terrorist organization that kills Jewish people?

WATCH:

AOC then very ignorantly blamed the Trump administration for being anti-Semitic.

Yeah, for real.

WATCH:

Five, six, seven, eight! America was never great!

Another clip:

Women’s Marches were canceled all over the country, including Chicago and California.

As far as the Golden State is concerned, the march was canned because too many white people signed up.

How funny.

From WJLA:

“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the press release went on to say. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach. Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”

How is it that so many millions of people can turn a blind eye to the harsh realities of the Democrat Party?

Plain ol’ ignorance?

Willful ignorance?

Linda Sarsour, a far-left Women’s Marcher, has made some pretty anti-Semitic statements in the past.

For example, she said people should stop humanizing Jews.

For real. No joke. See below.

So, how does the national co-director of Code Pink say Sarsour is the greatest ally to the Jewish people with a straight face?

From Daily Wire:

Last night on Fox’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Code Pink’s national co-director, Ariel Gold, defended Linda Sarsour, claiming that the Jewish community has “no greater ally” than she.

Ingraham: “You say that Linda Sarsour is an ally of the Jewish people, then why would Jewish Americans like Jonathan Greenblatt— he is the head of the Anti-Defamation League— have a real problem with her statements?”

Gold responded by calling it “disgraceful” that Greenblatt is “spending his time going after people who are our real allies. After the attack on Jewish cemeteries, Linda Sarsour raised over $100,000 after the Pittsburgh massacre, she raised over $200,000.”

Gold: “We have no greater ally in the Jewish community in this time where anti-Semitism is dangerously on the rise than Linda Sarsour.

WATCH:

Sarsour was arrested for civil disobedience during the Senate confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

A Muslim, Sarsour is a strong supporter of Palestine and has been known to take radical positions.

She got some very bad news recently.

The founder of the Women’s March, Teresa Shook, is calling on Sarsour to step down for her anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks.

“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).

Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent. I stand in Solidarity with all the Sister March Organizations, to bring the Movement back to its authentic purpose. As Women’s March founder, I am stepping up to bring focus back to the Unity Principles on which our movement began, and with the support of all of those who marched and have continued to march, I pledge to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”

Will the top dogs in the Democrat Party, such as Sen. Chuck Schumer, himself a Jew, call out Sarsour?
