Ocasio-Cortez Gets Blasted For Claiming Jesus Was A ‘Refugee’

H/T Godfather Politics.

 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is so ignorant she makes Slow Joe Biden look like a Rhodes Scholar.     

 

Ocasio-Cortez wished her Twitter followers a Merry Christmas by referring to the newborn Jesus as a “refugee.”

“Joy to the World!” Ocasio-Corteztweeted. “Merry Christmas everyone – here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. (Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)”

Why can’t she even take a day off?

For all the anti-immigrant pundits uncomfortable with and denying that Christ’s family were refugees, too: https://www.americamagazine.org/faith/2017/12/27/were-jesus-mary-and-joseph-refugees-yes 

Were Jesus, Mary and Joseph refugees? Yes.

A family is forced to flee their homeland for fear of persecution. This is the classic modern-day definition of a refugee.

Daily Wire:

Democratic socialist Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced intense backlash on Tuesday after she decided to politicize Christmas by making false claims about Jesus.

“Joy to the World!” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Merry Christmas everyone – here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. (Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)”

Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that Jesus was a refugee baby in a manger is categorically false, as Fox News‘ Samuel Chamberlain explains:

Mary and Joseph are not depicted as refugees in the Nativity story. According to the Gospel of Luke, Joseph brings the pregnant Mary to Bethlehem so that he may enroll in a census ordered by the Roman emperor Agustus. The couple are forced to take shelter in the stable where Jesus is born due to a lack of room at the inn. More

Someone better tell Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that it’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.

Why do people compare Jesus with illegal aliens? Mary and Joseph were traveling for a census. Not to immigrate to Bethlehem. There is absolutely no comparison at all.

Refugee?? According to the Gospel of Luke, Joseph brings the pregnant Mary to Bethlehem so that he may enroll in a census ordered by the Roman emperor Augustus. The couple are forced to take shelter in the stable where Jesus is born due to a lack of room at the inn.

Christ’s family weren’t refugees. They had to report back to Joseph’s home of his birth for the census. They arrived late and therefore found there was no room at the any inns.

Have you even read the Bible? They were not refugees. They were obeying the law to go and be counted for the census. End of.

Gun Owners Of America Formally File Lawsuit Against Bump Stock Ban

H/T Bearing Arms.

The Gun Owners Of America and the Virginia Citizens Defense League have stood tall and put their money where their mouths were.

Now, will the NRA and anyone else stand tall?

Immediately after the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) announced its decision to rescind its approval of the bump stock, the Gun Owners of America announced its plan to file a lawsuit to try and overturn the move.

Of course, talk is cheap.

However, the GOA announced yesterday that it wasn’t just talk.

GOA Files Suit Against ATF’s Illegal and Unconstitutional Bump Stock Ban

Springfield, VA – Gun Owners of America (GOA) and its Foundation (GOF) filed suit today against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) for their regulations on bump stocks.

Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America said, “Our suit challenges the legality of ATF’s action and asks for an injunction to stop enforcement of the regulations.

“These dangerous regulations can go much farther than just bump stocks. The goal of the anti-gun left is, ultimately, not just banning bump stocks, but, rather, putting ‘points on the board’ toward its goal of banning civilian ownership of all firearms.”

The suit is filed strategically in the Western District of Michigan, and GOA is joined by other pro-gun groups and individuals.

“Not coincidentally, Michigan is located within the jurisdiction of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals — a circuit which is not only very pro-gun, but also has been more skeptical of illegal government regulatory actions than many other circuits in the country,” Pratt stated.

“GOA is happy to announce that the Virginia Citizens Defense League has joined the suit as a plaintiff — as well as Tim from the Military Arms Channel and GOA’s Texas state director Rachel Malone,” Pratt continued. “And I’m pleased to report that several state gun organizations, such as the Oregon Firearms Federation and BamaCarry, have contacted GOA and will be contributing financially, and by other means, to this case.

For more information about the suit, please see here.

I’m not sure the Trump administration accounted for the firestorm it was going to ignite.

While bump stocks aren’t the most popular devices out there and many gun owners had little to no interest in owning one, this decision and the way it was handled rightly upset many in the gun community.

After all, why wouldn’t we get upset at something being perfectly legal one minute and then illegal the next, all with the stroke of a pen?

In addition to the lawsuit, there’s also a petition on the White House’s website seeking to reverse the bump stock ban, though it has only received a small number of signatures as of the writing of this post.

Regardless, this has angered many in the firearms community, and it’s not likely to get better any time soon.

So what will the ramifications of the lawsuit be? Honestly, depending on how far the lawsuit gets, it has the potential to impact far more than bump stocks.

Congress has long shirked its role as a lawmaker by empowering the executive branch’s agencies to create regulations for any number of things, from guns to the environment. The thinking was that an agency could adjust on the fly far better than Congress can. Plus, these agencies would theoretically operate outside of politics, making decisions based on data and not popular opinion.

We see how that worked out, don’t we?

A lawsuit could potentially overturn that decades-long policy and require Congress to create laws, making elected officials answer to the voters for what the Environmental Protection Agency and ATF do.

That would be a nice change of pace, now wouldn’t it?

The question is, will it happen?

Former ICE Chief Tom Homan Slams Nancy Pelosi for Saying Walls Don’t Work

H/T Godfather Politics.

I have one question for San Fran Nan that is if walls do not work why does your home have a wall around it?

One of House Leader Nancy Pelosi’s left-wing talking points is that border walls do not work, but former ICE chief Tom Homan finds Pelosi’s comments to be absurd.

Of course, border walls work, Homan says with his criticism of Pelosi’s attack on Trump.

“Every place a wall or barrier has been built, it has resulted in decreased illegal immigration, decreased drug smuggling. One hundred percent of the time, it has proven effective,” Mr. Homan recently told Fox News.

“Look at the rest of the data on the border, where arrests of MS-13 [gang] this year are up 118 percent, the seizures of guns — for God’s sake — are up almost 200 percent. There’s your data. Look at it. You can see why we need a wall,” he added.

The Washington Times added:

Mr. Homan, a veteran of the Border Patrol agent and investigator for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said Mr. Trump was “doing the right thing” in shutting down the government in a fight with Democrats over funding a wall or barrier on the border with Mexico.

The partial shutdown began Saturday, affecting about 25 percent of the federal government, including the Department of Homeland Security.

Pelosi recently slammed Trump for saying that terrorists can come over our unprotected border. She also slammed him for saying that illegal aliens bring dangerous diseases into the country.

But Homan said Pelosi is “100 percent wrong.”

“Allow me to educate Mrs. Pelosi,” he said. “As far as crime coming across the border, ICE arrested 138,000 criminals last year. These are people who entered the country illegally and committed crimes against the people of this country.”

Last year, ICE arrested illegal immigrants in more than 2,000 homicides cases, more than 11,000 weapon violations and almost 12,000 sexual assaults, Mr. Homan said.

Homan also noted that they had anillegal with tuberculosis come through once, too.

“We had to work with CDC and Texas Department of Health to find a way to treat this gentleman, so we kept him locked up for months at great taxpayer expense. Imagine if that strain of TB were to get released into the American society,” Mr. Homan told Fox.

Pelosi knows she is wrong. She just doesn’t care. So what if a few terrorists or thousands of disease-ridden illegals get through? If it helps her grow the welfare state and add Democrat voters to the roles, that is all she cares about.

Speak your mind go to jail: They are trying to make us forget about the First Amendment

This article would be incredible but unfortunately it’s not.

If one is not planning an advanced degree a bachelor’s degree is little more than a ticket to join the rat race to mediocrity.

Two years are clearly enough at a junior college, then think about trade schools.

How many millionaires can’t fix their own cars or appliances because most everything has become computerized?

Look no further than Cal Berkeley as a perfect example.

Few students matriculate from Berkeley in the social sciences, women’s studies, and African American Studies that will add little more to their communities than more  left-wing zealots and community organizers.

Why Government Shutdowns are Great

Comment By Jim Campbell

Sloth is evil.

More evil is a slothful federal government.

I’m talking here specifically about our members of Congress who are still drawing their monthly allotment at the taxpayers expense.

Keep both the House and the Senate shut down indefinitely.

While they aren’t in session the can’t take more of our freedoms away and raise taxes which is the only thing they do efficiently.

If people are temporarily unessential, that means the entire work force must be investigated by the Inspector General to see which jobs can be moved to the private sector or be terminated completely.

Nothing here against federal employees who are needed, they chose the security of a position with the government that just may not be needed anylonger.

  • All around America, federal workers affected by the government shutdown have gone on Twitter to share their #shut down…

Havoc on the Home Front Impacted Christmas

Pacific Paratrooper

From: “The Voice of the Angels”, 11th Airborne newspaper, vol. 201

Fewer men at home resulted in fewer men available to dress up and play Santa Claus.  Women served as substitute Santas at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City and at other department stores throughout the United States.

During WWII Christmas trees were in short supply because of lack of manpower to cut the tress down and a shortage of railroad space to ship the trees to market.  Americans rushed to buy American-made Visca artificial trees.  The electric lights that were designed in the 1940’s are still in use today.

Travel during the holidays was limited for most families due to the rationing of tires and gasoline.  Americans saved up their food ration stamps to provide extra food for a fine holiday meal.

Many ornaments were made with aluminum and tin, a highly rationed item.  As a result, families…

WHO PLAGIARIZED WHOM? Pelosi, Schumer Both Send Out EXACT SAME Tweet

H/T Right Wing Folks.

It is not a case of who plagiarized whom it is a simple case of Little Chuckie Schumer and San Fran Nan making sure their braindead toadies got the message and their talking points.

Democrats are big on “talking points.”

Whenever there’s a congressional hearing on nearly any subject, Democratic leaders fire out a list of talking points to the party’s lawmakers. That leads to highly repetitive — and exhausting — speeches from Democrats, all of which sound almost exactly alike.

Take the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh by President Trump. Even before he was named, leftists and liberals everywhere had already written their press releases, accusing the nominee — it didn’t matter who it was — of hating women and minorities, immigrants and gays. They’d already declared Trump’s nominee would set back the course of human history with Neanderthal thinking, would be in the back pocket of those evil corporations. He’d strip health care from millions, kill the unions, and run roughshod over civil rights.

And so it all came to pass, on cue.

“In selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, President Trump has put reproductive rights and freedoms and health care protections for millions of Americans on the judicial chopping block,” Sen. Chuck Schumer said in an email at 9:07 p.m. — minutes after Trump had named Kavanaugh. “This nomination could alter the balance of the court in favor of powerful special interests and against working families for a generation, and would take away labor, civil, and human rights from millions of Americans.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi read from the same talking points, calling the Kavanaugh nomination “a clear and disrespectful assault on the fundamental rights of women and on the quality, affordable health care of the American people.”

“Judge Kavanaugh’s long history of opposition to the full, fundamental right of every woman to make her own decisions about her body, family and health care poses a grave threat to women’s rights and to our founders’ promise of liberty and justice for all,” she said. “If he proves as eager an executor of the president’s bitter campaign to overturn Roe v. Wade and sabotage Americans’ health care as his record suggests, a woman’s right to choose will be repealed and the health coverage and economic security of 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions will be in grave peril.”

Perhaps the two leaders of congressional Democrats are just so in tune that they often echo each other. But on Christmas Eve day, they both posted the exact same tweet on Twitter — word for word.

Schumer tweeted first, 23 minutes before Pelosi. So does that mean Pelosi plagiarized Schumer, or were they both just typing the same emailed talking point into Twitter, minutes apart?

Your guess is as good as ours. But one thing we do know: Democrats need talking points in order to express their opinion. And that’s a little scary.
