Deranged Anti-Trumpers Need to Get Out More

H/T Town Hall.

I am going to disagree with Ann McElhinney getting out ore will not help most of the Anti-Trumpers.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. -Mark Twain

Self titled progressives or anti-Trumpers really need to get out more – they need to travel. Not to an Ashram in Katmandu, or the Ganges, or the Rainforest as is their wont. No, they need to get to Des Moines, Sioux Falls, Evansville or their voyage could even be around their own family table or neighborhood, meeting people who are not card-carrying Democrats, people who didn’t feel the need to wear all black on Nov. 9, 2016 (yes that actually happened in a major Hollywood establishment).

For the good of the country progressives need to get out more.

A group of Harvard students did. They recently toured the heartland to learn about the ‘other’ America. Many had never met a gun owner, never mind a Trump voter. They created a hashtag that described their experience, #IOPening. Shocker, turns out the ‘other’ isn’t deplorable at all.

It’s an important lesson. With the election of Donald Trump many liberals have dumped parents, siblings, friends and colleagues for the sole reason that they supported Trump. It’s horrible and hurtful and unfair. It’s really deplorable. And the dumping didn’t happen after a sober, civil, considered conversation or debate. It’s a summary judgement.

I recently met a lovely man in Northern California, whose grown children haven’t spoken to him in over a year. He writes, sends messages of love and concern and his adult daughters won’t write back. They didn’t even have a fight, they just stopped talking to him. He is heartbroken.

It’s happened to me. I wasn’t even a full-on Trump supporter when an Italian friend who I had shared an apartment with 30 years ago sent me a message out of the blue telling me we were done, she couldn’t be friends with me anymore because of Trump. Apparently, I had posted something on Facebook that was not sufficiently anti-Trump and she didn’t want a discussion, she was done. She’s not the only one.

I wasn’t a fan of Trump’s at the beginning, I was more of a Ted Cruz fan back then. The person that made me rethink my position was my dear friend, the late Paul Bender from Newport Beach. Paul ran a successful small business. He was a kind, gracious, generous and loving man and he was a serious man too. He was lots of fun but with nothing brash or crude in his behavior. He wanted Trump to be president, knew he would be and happily lived long enough to see that happen. Paul being such an early adopter gave me pause. If Paul Bender liked Trump I really needed to give the candidate another look.

Another Trump supporter I know is a substantial donor to the Gosnell Movie. His donation earned him an early sneak peek screening of the movie. He picked us up from the airport in the New England city where he lives and brought us to his home, in his kitchen he asked if we could pray. I have traveled all over the country with the movie and in my head I was thinking, ‘I know what’s about to happen here’, it happens all the time. People have prayed for me and for the success of the Gosnell movie. But this time was different. I can’t remember the exact words this gentleman used but his prayer was one of thanks to God that Trump was president. Here was a man of devout faith and his repeated prayer now was one of gratitude for President Donald Trump. It was an eye opener, it shouldn’t have been. I wished then as I have wished often since that the angry anti-Trump mob would get to meet this man of God, to know him, to listen and maybe to learn something. But they never will because they think people with faith are stupid and narrow minded. However in my experience they tend to be farsighted and open to worlds outside their comfort zone because they are very, very secure in their faith. And they are smart enough to know the difference between a secularist businessman who listens and an anti-Christian dishonest know-it-all.

It tells you a lot about liberals that they would ostracize a loved one who supports Trump. But I have yet to hear of a Trump supporter who stopped talking to a friend because of their support for Hillary Clinton.

That tells you a lot about conservatives.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT SUSPECTED IN OHIO TEEN RAPE CAPTURED IN TEXAS

H/T The Daily Caller.

President Trump was right about rapist coming in from Mexico.

An illegal immigrant suspected of kidnapping and raping two teenage sisters in Ohio has been captured in Texas following a nationwide manhunt, according to police.

David Ramos Contreras, 28, was arrested Thursday by deputy U.S. marshals and police officers in Lubbock, Texas, where he was found inside a home hiding under a bed.

Along with three other suspects, Contreras is accused of sexually assaulting and holding 13- and 14-year-old sisters against their will at a Days Inn in Bowling Green, Ohio, where the girls were staying with their mother. Two of the suspects, Juan Garcia Rios Adiel and Arnulfo Ramos, remain on the loose, and a fourth, Simon Juan, is in custody in Ohio.

Contreras had been on the run since June 28, when the girls’ mother reported the incident to police. Tips received over the last two days allowed investigators to track him from Bowling Green to Lubbock, investigators said.

“Information was developed placing Contreras in Lubbock, Texas after investigators for the U.S. Marshals Service and Bowling Green Police followed leads and tips developed over the last two days,” Lubbock police said in a statement Thursday, according to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

Authorities believe that all four suspects are in the U.S. illegally. A search of the Days Inn room where they were staying turned up fake identification documents, including a bogus U.S. permanent resident card issued out of Florida.

Contreras is a Mexican national who was deported from the U.S. in October 2017, according to police. He will be extradited back to Ohio to face charges, FOX 8 Cleveland reported.

The whereabouts of the two at-large suspects — Juan Garcia Rios Adiel and Arnulfo Ramos — are still unknown. The U.S Marshals Service’s Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force and Bowling Green Police are seeking assistance from the public in locating the men.

Before moving to Ohio, Ramos previously lived in Texas and Adiel lived in Florida.

3 Rhino Poachers Get Eaten By Lions In South Africa

H/T Clash Daily.

These three poachers went from the hunters to the hunted from predator to prey.

Most of us are thoroughly disgusted by poachers. But the lions actually found them pretty tasty.

In the West, if you commit a crime, your big concern is whether you’ll get nabbed for it by the police.

Africa is a little different. Especially in the wild. The police are not the greatest threat you need to fear there. The predators are.

One head and a number of bloodied body parts and limbs have been recovered from the area, along with three pairs of empty shoes.

Three pairs of empty shoes. That phrase paints a stark picture, doesn’t it?

Owner Nick Fox, 60, said: ‘We found enough body parts and three pairs of empty shoes which suggest to us that the lions ate at least three of them but it is thick bush and there could be more.

‘They came heavily armed with hunting rifles and axes which we have recovered and enough food to last them for several days so we suspect they were after all of our rhinos here.

‘But the lions are our watchers and guardians and they picked the wrong pride and became a meal.
Source: DailyMail

There was the typical expression of concern for the loss of human life.

Yeah, sure. I suppose. But something like this has a Darwin Award aspect to it. You’re there, camping out in the African wilderness for several days, intending to slaughter an entire herd… and it doesn’t occur to anybody that THEY could be the prey animal in this scenario?

Someone will mourn for the loss of life of these poachers, to be sure.

But we wonder, will any of our readers be among them?

California Man Accused of Murder for Beheading Girlfriend with Samurai Sword

H/T Breitbart California.

There needs to be Samurai Sword control there must be a ban on assault Swords of all types.

Island County Sheriff’s Office

Police are searching for a California man accused of beheading his girlfriend with a samurai sword after authorities found his DNA on the alleged murder weapon.

Authorities are on the lookout for Jacob Gonzales, 33, of Los Banos, and charged him Friday with murder in connection with the death of Katherine Cunningham, 26, upon discovering that the suspect’s DNA was a match with the DNA authorities found on the sword’s handle, the Daily Mail reported.

Investigators found the sword inside the trunk of a Honda Civic 560 miles away from where Cunningham’s body had been found, ran DNA tests on it, and revealed Wednesday that the blade of the sword contained Cunningham’s blood. Test results also revealed that Gonzales’ DNA was on the sword’s handle.

Authorities found Cunningham’s body on Camano Island in Washington on March 3 and initially charged Gonzales with vehicle and firearms theft. Detectives found a bunker containing ammunition, supplies, and firearms near the body.

“Based on those results, we amended the charges,” the Island County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement explaining the updated charge of “domestic violence murder in the second degree while armed with a deadly weapon” on Friday.

There is currently a $1 million warrant out for Gonzales’ arrest. Police describe Gonzales as a Hispanic male with black hair, hazel eyes, 5’9” tall and weighing around 150 lbs. Authorities say he is considered “armed and dangerous.”

Samurai swords have been used as a weapon of choice for many criminals. In March, a woman allegedly used a samurai sword to stab her boyfriend in an alleged plot to kill him.

VIRAL Trump: If ‘Pocahontas’ Warren is in 2020 Race, I’ll Give $1M to Her Favorite Charity to Take DNA Test

H/T Fox News Insider.

Princess Fauxcahontas will not take the DNA test because she knows she will be exposed as a fraud.

2d1d60ec968ebbe720ba3e4499828d5e8651fedd502046e348c5fce680f54765

President Donald Trump said that if Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren is in a 2020 presidential debate against him, he will — at that time — offer $1 million to her favorite charity on the spot if she takes a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage.

Warren, who originally is from Oklahoma, has maintained that her mother’s family has Cherokee or Delaware ancestry.

Trump said his critics have pressured him to apologize to Warren for the “Pocahontas” moniker.

However, Trump said at the Great Falls, Mont. rally that he apologizes to the original Pocahontas — a 17th Century Native American woman who married English settler John Rolfe and later moved with him to near present-day Henrico County, Va.

Fox News

@FoxNews

President @realDonaldTrump: “Every day we are keeping our promises.”

Trump said that when or if Warren “proclaims she’s of Indian heritage” he will order a DNA test kit from one of the television commercials he views.

 


At the prospective debate, he will “gently” toss the kit in Warren’s direction and “say I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity — paid for by Trump — if it show’s you’re an Indian.”

One of Warren’s senatorial opponents, Independent candidate Shiva Ayyadurai, previously shipped a kit to Warren, which he said was refused.

Trump said Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden are likely to announce bids to face him in 2020.

.@POTUS: “I’m meeting with President Putin next week… And let me tell you, getting along with Russia and getting along with China and getting along with other countries is a good thing. It’s not a bad thing.”

Trump was in Great Falls to stump for State Auditor Matt Rosendale (R), who is facing Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) this fall.


UPDATE: Sen. Warren fired back on Twitter:

Elizabeth Warren

@elizabethforma

Hey, @realDonaldTrump: While you obsess over my genes, your Admin is conducting DNA tests on little kids because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order. Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you’re destroying.

 

 

 

DNC Chair Tom Perez Calls Democratic Socialist Ocasio-Cortez ‘The Future of Our Party’

 

H/T Town Hall.

If Democratic Socialist Ocasio-Cortez is the future of the DemocRat party then it looks like the party will have a bleak future.

7819e0e3-ae4b-45a8-ac6f-1153cd09d63b

Democrat National Committee Chair Tom Perez called Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “the future of the party” during the Bill Press Show Tuesday. Ocasio-Cortez defeated ten-term incumbent and House Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley (NY) in a stunning upset last week and ran on an extreme platform of abolishing ICE and Medicare for all.

“Twenty-eight years old, never ran for office before, big progressive. Calls herself a democratic socialist, actually, like Bernie Sanders did, she was a Bernie Sanders supporter,” Press noted.

“What’s this tell you about where the Democratic Party is going today?” he asked.

Perez replied saying that his daughters were excited by Ocasio-Cortez’s win.

“I have three kids. two of them are daughters. One just graduated college, one who is in college – and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria because she really – she represents the future of our party,” Perez said.

Perez added that he did have “great respect” for Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), saying, “he’s a good Democrat … he’s fought the good fight.”

Perez’s praise for Ocasio-Cortez was milder last week following her stunning primary victory.

He would not directly answer a question from CNN’s Chris Cuomo about whether her win marked a shift in the Democratic party last week.

He told MSNBC of Ocasio-Cortez’s win that “time will tell, but I think what we’ve seen in elections across the country are candidates who won by focusing on the issues that were keeping their constituents up at night.”

Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer: ‘I Will Run’ in 2020 if No Candidate Who’s a ‘Street Fighter’ Runs

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

I have a better being elected the next Pope than Michael Avenatti has and I have zero chance of becoming the next Pope.

Michael Avenatti, adult-film actress Stormy Daniels’ lawyer and a vocal critic of the president, said on the 4th of July that he is considering a 2020 presidential run.

Avenatti has made a name for himself with numerous media appearances on behalf of Daniels, who said she received a $130,000 hush payment from Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen regarding a sexual encounter she had with Trump in 2006. Avenatti’s criticism of Trump has gone far beyond the matter with Daniels, and he said Wednesday he would be willing to run against Trump if no one who will “fight” enters the race.

“IF (big) he seeks re-election, I will run, but only if I think that there is no other candidate in the race that has a REAL chance at beating him. We can’t relive 2016,” he wrote on Twitter. “I love this country, our values and our people too much to sit by while they are destroyed.”

Brian Krassenstein@krassenstein

When are you announcing your 2020 run?

Michael Avenatti

@MichaelAvenatti

IF (big) he seeks re-election, I will run, but only if I think that there is no other candidate in the race that has a REAL chance at beating him. We can’t relive 2016. I love this country, our values and our people too much to sit by while they are destroyed.

He also posted a New York Daily News cover depicting Trump as a clown and said “only a street fighter” could retake the White House for Democrats.

Michael Avenatti

@MichaelAvenatti

I always liked the Daily News! Be clear – only a street fighter has a chance at displacing the “King.” Otherwise, this country and its principles will be in pieces and non-recognizable.

This echoes a previous tweet he made in June, which suggested a presidential run has been on the lawyer’s mind.

Michael Avenatti

@MichaelAvenatti

Off topic – the candidate in 2020 better be a take no prisoners street fighter who is prepared to go 15 rounds in a VERY brutal campaign. It will be a cage match like no other in modern times. The future of the republic may depend on it.

He went on to give some indication of how he may campaign by touting his position on several hot-button issues, such as abortion and immigration.

“Solidly pro choice. Would never nominate a justice to the SCOTUS who did not believe in Roe or who would seek to outlaw same sex marriage,” he wrote. “Fully support equality for women & people of all races, & gay rights. We don’t separate families at the border. And we don’t kiss-up to Putin.”

He also hit back at criticism that he may not have the “experience” to be win a presidential election.

“To those that claim that only a traditional politician with ‘experience’ can beat Trump, go back & look at the results from 2016,” he wrote. “He beat all 15 of those candidates that he faced (crushed many). If we go down the same path and are not smart, don’t be surprised with the result.”

Michael Avenatti

@MichaelAvenatti

To those that claim that only a traditional politician with “experience” can beat Trump, go back & look at the results from 2016. He beat all 15 of those candidates that he faced (crushed many). If we go down the same path and are not smart, don’t be surprised with the result.

On CNN Wednesday, Avenatti said he would run if no one “competent” is in the race, and he touted his positions on both economic and social issues.

“I am interested in talking about ripping kids from the sides of their mothers,” he said. “I am interested in having allies laugh at us around the world. I am interested in where all those jobs are that he promised Americans in key electoral states. I am interested in pro-choice and a whole host of other issues.”

Avenatti has hit Trump on everything from Russian collusion to a prank phone call made to Air Force One, and he has maintained a contentious relationship with reporters. His cryptic comments about his asserted knowledge of Trump’s past behavior would likely face further scrutiny were he to run for president.
