Yes, Someone Really Did Try to Climb the Statue of Liberty to “Protest ICE”. Here’s What We Know

Starry-eyed admirers gushed about what  “hero” she is for the powerful “symbolism”; meanwhile, sensible people everywhere wonder what on earth she accomplished.

Don’t you like how leftists have jumped from speaking out against the policy of separating children from their parents to calling for the complete abolition of a necessary federal agency in the span of a week?

I mean, were they not content to simply keep protesting Trump? Do they not realize that ICE doesn’t make policy?

I guess not.

At any rate, logic doesn’t seem to play a huge role in what is driving leftist hysteria over border policies, because emotion and sensation seem to play a much bigger role.

Enter: the lady for whom LEOs had to shut down Liberty Island on the 4th of July because of her ridiculous protest.

The Daily Wire reports:

On Wednesday, one female protester who climbed the base of the Statue of Liberty to protest against U.S. immigration policy forced thousands of visitors who wanted to visit the iconic statue on Liberty Island on July 4 to evacuate the island when she would not leave.

The woman was part of a group of roughly 40 protesters from the group Rise and Resist who were carrying a banner calling for the abolishment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Therese Okoumou ignored police requests to come down for four hours before two officers climbed up to the base and took her to a ladder where she climbed down 25 feet to the monument’s observation point, where she was taken into custody.

Jay W. Walker, an organizer with Rise and Resist, said the group had no idea that Okoumou would make the climb, but claimed it would help the group’s cause, according to AP.

I have only one question for Mr. Walker….how?! 

Here’s the stunning moment when authorities reached Okoumou, a Congolese immigrant. I hope it’s not in poor taste to say it is somewhat gratifying to see her snatched up by the people who had to risk life and limb to save her, all because she randomly decided to climb the Statue of Liberty. 

Starry-eyed admirers gush in the comments section about what  “hero” she is for the powerful “symbolism”; meanwhile, sensible people everywhere wonder what on earth she accomplished.

NO JOKE: Bernie Sanders Says He Would Let Boston Bomber Vote — From Jail (Watch)

There are no words…

Every proud American has a duty to make sure President Trump is re-elected simply so Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders never steps foot in the Oval Office. His socialist policies would cause irreversible damage on America – and that’s the point. That is what progressives want to see happen. Monday night on CNN, Bernie said he’d be cool with the Boston bomber voting from prison. But not just him. All prisoners. No joke. From Daily Wire: Socialist Bernie Sanders said during a CNN Democratic town hall event that he would let the Boston Marathon bomber, sex predators, and murderers vote in U.S. elections while in prison. An audience member asked, “Would [you] support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer? Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?” Sanders noted, “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished. They may be in jail 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole life. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime. But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope … I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.” Bernie topped it off with this final line, “I believe every single person does have the right to vote.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMyrChsBG68 Just completely crazy, right? Speaking of crazy, Ann Coulter has completely lost her mind. In 2016, she backed Donald Trump harder than anybody because he promised to take a tough stance…

EXPOSED: Ocasio-Cortez & Omar Caught Violating Rules, Experts Say They WON’T Be Punished

Because, you know – OF COURSE!

If you’re a “cool” freshman member of Congress, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and Ilhan Omar (MN), you can do whatever you please and get away with it. Well, that pretty much pertains to every member of Congress – but that’s beside the point. AOC and Omar may have been caught violating the rules, but they’re going to skate. Craziness. From Daily Caller: House progressives are violating congressional rules by using a dark money group to help accomplish their caucus’s legislative goals, experts told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The leaders of the 97-member Congressional Progressive Caucus could face a formal censure or reprimand for using outside funds and services from the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center (CPCC), a nonprofit group, according to the experts. House rules prohibit congressional caucuses from accepting such support from outside organizations. But although the progressive caucus’s relationship with the outside charity group “seems like a clear violation of the rule,” there likely won’t be any consequences anytime soon, Acton Institute editor Joe Carter, who has researched congressional caucuses, told TheDCNF. Omar and Ocasio-Cortez joined Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a video put out by Rolling Stone. The trio says a whole lot while literally saying nothing. Pelosi even went as far as to demand President Trump not seek re-election in 2020. You know, because a booming economy and all-time low minority unemployment is apparently a bad thing. Pelosi: “If I had to say something to Trump, I probably wouldn’t say anything, because I don’t think that it’s worth the extra attention.” She added, “Mr. President, do the country a favor, don’t run.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiQr6XtcdwE#action=share Omar represents Minnesota’s fifth district. A new report claims it is the “terrorist recruitment capital” of the United States of America. As if Omar wasn’t dealing with enough at the moment,…
