Lara Trump unconcerned by new 2020 election poll showing Biden, Sanders and Warren ahead of President Trump

H/T  Fox News.

These are the same pollsters that told us the Hildabeast Clinton would beat Donald Trump in 2016.

Lara Trump, a senior campaign adviser for her father-in-law President Trump, told “America’s Newsroom” hosts she’s unbothered by a new poll showing Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden ahead of Trump.

The Fox News poll illustrated that if the 2020 election were held today, Joe Biden would be polling at 49 percent, Bernie Sanders at 46 percent and Elizabeth Warren at 43 percent, all higher than Donald Trump’s numbers of 38 percent.

“I say this all the time, but none of these people seem like a huge threat to me,” Lara Trump said during an interview Friday morning.

She went on to discuss perceived evidence of a successful Trump presidency, including increased job numbers and heightened GDP reports in 2019.

“He has real results to show here,” she said of President Trump. “Where all these other people, even Joe Biden, had eight years under the Obama administration to do a lot of great things for this country and we didn’t really see that,” she continued.

“So we still maintain we feel very comfortable no matter who the candidate is.”

Host Sandra Smith went on to detail another Fox News poll which indicated that the most important priority sought by Democratic voters in terms of a 2020 presidential candidate is that they be able to beat Donald Trump.

According to Smith, 73 percent of voters placed the importance of a candidate’s ability to halt Trump ahead of “high ethical standards, track records, new ideas.”

Lara Trump added that she thought those results were “sad” and credited it to Democrats continuing to be angry about the defeat of Hillary Clinton in 2016.

WALSH: Pro-Abortion Zealots Are Sending Me Death Threats And Wishing Rape On My Children. Here Are The Messages.

H/T BarbWire.

There are some sick hate filled bastards on the left.

I have been outspoken this week (and every other week) in my support of the pro-life position. As I have explained many times, I am opposed to abortion in all cases, at all stages, for any reason, no matter the circumstances or manner of the child’s conception. My reason, as I’ve extensively outlined, is that unborn people are people. All people, in my view, have inherent human rights. The right to life is first and foremost and can only be forfeit if a person becomes an active threat to another person, or commits a particularly heinous and violent crime. Since there can be no such thing as a punitive abortion or abortion in self-defense, all abortion is evil because all abortion kills innocent and defenseless people. That’s my case, and the case of every staunch pro-lifer.

You can disagree with our case but if our “don’t kill people” position sends you into a blind rage, that should tell you something about your own psychological state. Speaking of questionable psychological states, this week I have been inundated with hate mail from abortion supporters who are upset in general about my pro-life views, and in particular that I have the gall to suggest that the children of rape victims should not be executed for the crimes of their fathers. I have also pointed out that rapists use abortion to cover their tracks, which is a documented, self-evident, but apparently completely taboo fact .

Of course, I get hate mail all the time. Anyone who shares their opinions online gets hate mail. I won’t bother sharing the hundreds of messages containing vile, vicious, but unfortunately run-of-the-mill insults directed at me. Instead, I want to show you some of the absurdly and graphically violent messages, not only threatening me, but threatening and wishing death and rape on my wife and small children. Please go to my Twitter to see the screenshots and the names and faces of some of these people. Here are some of the lowlights:

-“I’ll rape your daughter and your wife then you tell me what you wanna do. You piece of shit…”

-“Wish I could punch your dumbass face in you f****n mook I wish rape upon every female in your family so they are FORCED to have a child.”

-“Hope you daughter gets raped g”

-“I hope your wife and daughter are both brutally raped”

-“You f*****g idiot!!!! I hope you get raped up the a**”

-“I hope your dad rapes you so your opinion can be valid”

-“You are a f*****g retard. Wish your mom aborted you… hope your daughters have a million abortions”

-“You are the best reason for abortion I have ever encountered. It is a crime that your mother failed to exercise her right…One can only hope that by some happening that error in judgment is remedied. This is not a threat but a hope, a wish, that you, and all who think like you do, are permanently silenced.”

-“You’re a f*****g piece of s**t. I hope I get to meet you one day and show your face how I feel.”

-“Absolute f*****g idiot tw*t… Abort all three of your already born children.”

-“Well you are the exact reason for abortion… feel bad for your kids they are going to turn out like scum just like their dad.”

-“Come to Reading you’re getting slashed g”

-“…I’ll have you clapped mate”

-“Kill yourself”

-“Kill yourself. Your family would be better off.”

-“You should jump off a bridge… You don’t deserve to walk the planet you piece of s**t.”

-“I’m not going to tell you to kill yourself but if I read an article headlined “Blogger Matt Walsh dead by apparent suicide, let’s just say I’d have a beer.”

There are plenty more where these came from.

A few points about these messages:

1) A few of these people made the mistake of wishing or threatening harm to my family while using their real names and photographs. They may have just caused life-altering problems for themselves. Since I chose to publish their names and messages, it will now live forever in the annals of the internet and any future or current employer who googles Taylor Nowicki (the guy who threatened to rape my five-year-old daughter) or Jeff Fahey (the guy who wished rape on every female member of my family) will see what kind of sick and disturbed people they are. The girlfriend of the author of one of the above messages reached out to me this morning. She was not aware that her boyfriend is the sort of person who treats people this way. She did not seem pleased with the revelation. I wonder if Jeff’s and Taylor’s families know that they like to wish rape on children? I suppose now they do.

I am not always a fan of public shaming, but neither am I always against it. Anyone who says any of the things quoted above should not be given the privilege of remaining anonymous. If you think it is okay to wish sexual violence on children or tell your ideological opponents to kill themselves, you should be expected to stand by those words publicly. If you can’t stand by them, if you would be ashamed to have your girlfriend or your mother or your employer find out what sorts of things you say to people from the comfort of your keyboard, then maybe you shouldn’t be saying them at all. That is the lesson that Taylor, Jeff, and company will learn the hard way.

2) When Ilhan Omar was getting death threats, we were told that it is “dangerous” and “irresponsible” to criticize her. It “puts her life at risk,” the media breathlessly insisted. Well will the media and the Left show the same concern for the safety of my wife, my children, and myself?

I would never be so absurd as to suggest that criticism endangers my life. But if we’re worried about reckless and irresponsible rhetoric that may lead crazy people to do crazy things, what about all of the people who have accused me of “defending rape” or being a “rape apologist” because I oppose the murder of babies conceived in rape? Tom Arnold actually implied that I am a rapist myself and then accused me of “blogging a lot of pro-rapist stuff.” If legitimate criticism of Omar endangers her life, then what about being libelously and falsely labeled a rapist by a public figure?

3) My experiences here are not unique. Pro-lifers encounter this kind of thing all the time. Stand outside of an abortion clinic with a sign sometime and you’ll hear all of this and worse. If vicious and violent rhetoric from pro-aborts was rare or aberrational, I could maybe expect to get one or two “kill yourself” messages in response to my pro-life opinions. But this is not one or two. This seems to be a pattern. Defile the altar of death upon which these people worship, and they will come after you with their fangs out. This is what abortion advocacy looks like with the mask off. An ugly, ugly creature indeed.

WHITE HOUSE SPOKESPERSON HOGAN GIDLEY ON INSURRECTION ACT: TRUMP HAS ‘LOTS OF TOOLS AT HIS DISPOSAL’

H/T The Daily Caller.

I say use everything at your disposal Mr.President to get the illegals out of America including the Insurrection Act.

The White House is open to the possibility of President Donald Trump invoking the Insurrection Act to remove illegal immigrants from the country.

White House deputy principal press secretary Hogan Gidley refused to definitively say whether or not the president intends to use the broad powers afforded by the Act during a Friday interview on Fox News but noted that Trump has “lots of tools at his disposal.

There’s a suggestion — I think I was reading The Washington Post this morning, they were repeating what was in The Daily Caller yesterday — about how people in the administration are talking about using the Insurrection Act, which hasn’t been used in a long time,” Fox News host Steve Doocy said to Gidley. “Is the administration considering the Insurrection Act?”

“Look, the president has been very clear. He’s going to do everything within his legal authority to protect the American people,” Gidley replied.

WATCH:

 

Doocy pressed Gidley to give a “yes or no” answer, and co-host Brian Kilmeade laughed and said that Gidley’s response indicates a “yes.”

“I’m just saying there are lots of tools at his disposal. We haven’t used them all and we’re looking at ways to protect the American people.
Gidley added.

The Daily Caller first reported on Thursday that Trump was planning on using the act to remove illegal immigrants, which allows the president to use military forces when he believes local authorities are not able to protect the populace.

“We’re doing the Insurrection Act,” one senior administration official told the Caller.

The official also expressed concerns about potential legal challenges.

Stephen Vladeck, a law professor at the University of Texas School of Law, wrote in The Atlantic that Trump has the authority to carry out such an order.

“Lawsuits will certainly challenge Trump’s invocation of the Insurrection Act to assist in immigration enforcement—a purpose for which it’s never previously been used. But the text of the statute would seem to be on the president’s side,” Vladeck said.

The act was last used in 1992 by George H.W. Bush to quell the LA riots and was also used to aid desegregation efforts in the south in 1957.

 

Donald Trump Warns Illegal Immigrants Released in the U.S.: ‘You Will Be Leaving Soon!’

H/T Breitbart.

Get them out of America as soon as possible Mr.President.

President Donald Trump warned Friday that migrants and illegal immigrants released into the United States should not get comfortable.

“Please do not make yourselves too comfortable, you will be leaving soon!” he wrote on Twitter.

Trump commented as border officials are daily releasing thousands of immigrants apprehended at the border into the United States as part of the catch and release loopholes in U.S. immigration law.

The Department of Homeland Security revealed that about 9,000 border crossers and illegal immigrants have been released into the United States in just eight days.

But Trump argued that the immigrants released by border officials were only in the United States temporarily.

“All people that are illegally coming into the United States now will be removed from our Country at a later date as we build up our removal forces and as the laws are changed,” he wrote.

Trump praised border law officials for record numbers of apprehended migrants and illegal immigrants at the border, as the wave of migrants from Central America continues into the United States.

“Border Patrol is apprehending record numbers of people at the Southern Border,” he wrote. “The bad “hombres,” of which there are many, are being detained & will be sent home.”

Trump again called for Democrats to work with Republicans to fix the existing asylum and security laws to help defuse the national emergency at the border.

“The Democrats now realize that there is a National Emergency at the Border and that, if we work together, it can be immediately fixed,” he wrote. “We need Democrat votes and all will be well!”

Border Patrol is apprehending record numbers of people at the Southern Border. The bad “hombres,” of which there are many, are being detained & will be sent home. Those which we release under the ridiculous Catch & Telease loophole, are being registered and will be removed later!

Kelsey Grammer: Trump Has Accomplished More Than ‘Washington Clowns’ Have In 60 Years

H/T Godfather Politics.

Kelsey Grammer is spot on with his comments about what President Trump has accomplished.

The American people are back to work in historically large numbers.

 

Kelsey Grammer, one of Hollywood’s outspoken conservatives, defended President Donald Trump in a PBS interview with Christiane Amanpour.

AMANPOUR: I was wondering whether you thought the sort of, many people believe this sort of fabric is being disrupted.

GRAMMER: Well I think fabric being disrupted is a good thing.

AMANPOUR: You do?

GRAMMER: Oh yeah. I don’t think Washington didn’t do us any favors for the last 50, 60 years, I think they’ve all been sort of the same party, the same bunch of clowns, the same bunch of really unpleasant people.

AMANPOUR: Its politics.

GRAMMER: And I don’t think they’ve been helping anybody but themselves.

It’s good to see an actor who doesn’t kowtow to Hollywood’s groupthink.

TDW:

One of the few Hollywood conservatives, Kelsey Grammer of TV’s “Frasier,” is singing President Trump’s praises for doing more in 60 years than all of the “Washington clowns” that have been his detractors.

According to Newsbusters, Grammer sat down with Christiane Amanpour on the PBS show “Amanpour and Company” on Tuesday night. First, the host asked if his outspoken conservatism has been costly to him in any way in such a left-wing bastion like Hollywood.

“Can I ask you, Kelsey, because we were talking obviously about today’s politics and it’s very divisive, very partisan, whether it’s in the United States, whether it’s here,” Amanpour began. “You are one of those rare Hollywood beasts who is conservative, and you voted for Donald Trump. And I just wonder, what, whether you sort of took any hits in Hollywood for that? Did you feel that you were sort of marginalized?”

“I’m not aware of taking a hit for it but now, certainly passions run high, and certainly he has touched on an extraordinarily passionate response,” Grammer said. “I don’t know if it’s as serious or horrible as everybody wants it to be.” More

If American politicians had American citizens in mind for the last 60 years, we would have secure borders, English would be the official language of the Federal Government, illegal aliens would get zero benefits from the government, and health care would be allowed to run as a free market. Among many other things.

Mitt Romney Opposed Trump Judge Nominee Because He Criticized Obama

H/T The Lid.

Poor Little Mittens Romney is all butthurt over his buddy Bathhouse Barry Obama being criticized by this judge nominee.

Mittens Romney is taking up where John Wet Start The Songbird McCain left off as a critic of President Trump.

“R” is for RINO

Utah Senator Mitt Romney is at again, turning against his president, party, and ideals by opposing a Trump judicial pick just because the nominee criticized Obama. Seriously, just who the hell does Romney think he is earning points from by opposing a guy who was critical of Obama?

It sure as heck isn’t the conservative side. Romney was the onlyRepublican to oppose the nominee.

According to Politico:

Romney cast the lone GOP “no” vote against Michael Truncale, who was confirmed 49-46 on Tuesday morning to the Eastern District of Texas. Truncale called Obama an “un-American imposter” in June 2011, and explained to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he was “merely expressing frustration by what I perceived as a lack of overt patriotism on behalf of President Obama.” He also said he believed Obama was born in Hawaii and did not subscribe to “birtherism,” a racist theory that the president was not an American citizen.

But Romney went on the attack…

“He made particularly disparaging comments about President Obama. And as the Republican nominee for president, I just couldn’t subscribe to that in a federal judge,” Romney said in a brief interview. “This was not a matter of qualifications or politics. This was something specifically to that issue as a former nominee of our party.”

Seriously? So the guy is qualified, but you don’t like what he said about Obama?  If Romney dared to call out Obama for saying false, bad things about him,  Romney would have been elected president in 2012.

Again, who does this dope think he is earning points with? He wasn’t scoring points with Trump, Trump loyalists. Or even Senate leader McConnell. And it 100% it won’t make him more popular with voters.

The only people who would applaud this foolishness is the far left. And while they may praise Romney today, they absolutely won’t give him any credit for the long term.

Romney is simply a leftist wearing a Republican mask who is yearning to be the media’s favorite new GOP RINO replacing the late John McCain.
