Crist (D) Went on a Secret Trip to Cuba Amid Rising Tensions

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

In spite of what Rep.Charlie Crist(Delusional-FL)says about his trip to Cuba, he went with one thing in mind undercut the policies of President Trump.

Delusional DemocRats seem to have this unnatural attraction to Communist thug tin-horned dictators and anyone that is anti-American. 

Rep. Charlie Crist (D., Fla.) went on a secret trip to Cuba last month to meet with officials there as tensions between the United States and Cuba rose over Venezuela’s crisis.

Records from the House of Representatives Committee on Ethics showed the trip lasted from April 25 to April 27, and Crist’s office did not announce it, the Tampa Bay Times reports. The trip was sponsored by the Center for Democracy in the Americas, an organization that claims to promote “a U.S. policy toward Cuba based on engagement and recognition of Cuba’s sovereignty.”

Crist said his visit was about “advancements in US-Cuba policy and relations made during the Obama Administration, and the impact of the Trump Administration’s change in course.” The Timesnotes that Crist supported easing travel and business restrictions while Obama was in office.

“My concern is for the Cuban people and the long term security interests of the United States. As we disengage and tighten sanctions, Russia and China will enter the void,” Crist said. “For a country 90 miles off Florida’s coast, that’s not a positive development, and the Cuban people caught in the crossfire will either flee or suffer.

Crist’s visit came as the U.S.-Cuban reltionship became increasingly strained amid the crisis in Venezuela. Cuba supports Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro, and national security adviser John Bolton has said Cuba has more than 20,000 troops protecting Maduro. Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla denied the claim on the day Crist arrived, calling Bolton a “pathological liar.”

Crist has called for Maduro to step down. The Florida congressman and Rodriguez Parilla appeared together in a photograph published by the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party.

The Center for Democracy in the Americas has criticized the Trump administration’s policy in Cuba and Venezuela. Emily Mendrala, the organization’s executive director, called the administration’s approach toward Cuba “mean-spirited” and said Trump’s attempts to “exploit events in Venezuela to settle Cold War scores with Cuba is a distraction from real needs in Venezuela.”

ERIC TRUMP SQUARES OFF WITH BILL DE BLASIO: ‘OUR GREAT CITY HAS GONE TO SH*T UNDER YOUR LEADERSHIP’

H/T The Daily Caller.

Eric Trump is spot on with his observations.

You can look at any city or state ran by Delusional DemocRats and they have all gone to sh*t.

Eric Trump squared off on Twitter with Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, claiming that “our great city has gone to shit” under de Blasio’s leadership.

The son of President Donald Trump fired off a series of tweets Monday evening in response to a press conference de Blasio held in the lobby of NYC’s Trump Tower earlier in the day. The mayor intended to tout his NYC Green New Deal and attacked Trump for being a major source of the emissions he aims to eliminate

“The fact that the Mayor of a major city would attack an iconic organization (which employs thousands of hardworking New York taxpayers) for his own political gain is an abuse of power, unethical and simply counterintuitive,” Trump tweeted.

Trump went on to accuse de Blasio of failing to support businesses, claiming that was the reason people were choosing to leave the city.

Trump then extended an offer, saying that he would be happy to sit down with de Blasio and talk policy any time. “But forcing a pop-up press conference in our lobby is simply childish,” he added.

According to the most recent census data, Trump may be right about people leaving New York. Although the major population losses are focused upstate, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Nassau and Westchester Counties all saw losses between 2017 and 2018 as well. The state’s cumulative loss is such that, if it continues, New York could lose two Congressional seats by 2022.

Shooters in Colorado School Were Transgender, Trump-Hating, Democrats Who Love Obama

H/T Godfather Politics.

Now we know why this story dropped off of the drive-by media’s radar.

The shooters are left-wing loon tunes.

Every school shooter is a Delusional DemocRat,

The media won’t tell you this, but the two killers who shot up a Colorado high school were liberals. One was transgender, the other a registered Democrat, and both were Trump haters.

The two shooters who rampaged through a K-12 STEM school located in Douglas County were both liberals. Devon Erickson, 18, and a younger student who police first thought was a boy but later found to be a girl, were taken into custody after the shooting.

The named shooter, Devon Erickson, shows all the signs of a left-wing anarchist, Heavy reported.

For instance, he had spray painted “Fuck Society” on the side of his car.

Car towed from suspect’s home apparently has “F*** SOCIETY” spray painted on the side. Also “666” and a what looks like a pentagram sprayed on the hood.

Erickson is also a registered Democrat who hates Christians and Trump and loves Obama.

“You know what I hate? All these Christians who hate gays, yet in the bible, it says in Deuteronomy 17:12-13, if someone doesn’t do what their priest tells them to do, they are supposed to die. It has plenty of crazy stuff like that,” he wrote in one Facebook post a couple years ago. “But all they get out of it is ‘ewwwwww gays.’” In 2015, Erickson put a celebrate pride filter onto a Facebook picture.

Also:

With one post, he wrote, “I’m covered in ink and addicted to pain.” 9News reported that police were expected to search a home owned by James and Stephanie Erickson. Stephanie’s Facebook page was deleted shortly after news broke of the shooting.

Heavy has a ton of more evidence of his leftism.

Finally, the second suspect is a transgender kid, a girl posing as a boy.

The second suspect was not named because she is underage, but Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said on May 8 that the suspect is a “juvenile female.” The sheriff added, “We originally thought the juvenile was a male by appearance. I did the press release very early on before the detectives were able to get medical… were able to speak to her.”

Further, on the second suspect: The Denver Channel said that “the second suspect, who is a minor, is a transgender male who was in the midst of transitioning from female to male.” The motive, the station alleges, “went beyond bullying and involved revenge and anger towards others at the school,” adding that one suspect “was involved in legal and illegal drug use and had been in therapy.”

LMAO: More Women Donated To Trump’s Re-Election Bid Than ANY 2020 Democrat Candidate

H/T Clash Daily.

How is this going to be spun by the Delusional DemocRat and the drive-by media?

Uh-oh. It looks like President Donald J. Trump is pretty popular with the ladies! How are Democrats going to spin this news?

The prevailing narrative is that women don’t like President Donald J. Trump. That’s what you’d get from the Media(D) as they breathlessly covered the NastyWomen’s March and their extremist organizers with anti-Semitic and alleged terror ties — or, in at least one case, an actual terrorist.

But that’s not the whole story.

Because if you go to a Trump Rally, you’ll see ladies like this:

It’s a beautiful thing.

But the Media(D) refuse to cover that, don’t they?

I know this firsthand — I like President Trump and I’m a woman.

Apparently, I’m not alone.

If the first quarter donation results indicate a trend — that is some BAD news for the Dems!

The Federal Election Commission data reveals that close to THREE TIMES the number of women have donated to the Trump campaign in the first quarter than the nearest Democratic challenger.

10,375 women have donated to Trump in the first quarter of 2019, more than double the nearest Democratic challenger. California Sen. Kamala Harris had the second highest number of female donors with 3,850.

Not only is he getting more women donating to his campaign, but the donations are much smaller on average. This means it’s not just the hoity-toity elitists maxing out their donations, it’s the average, blue-collar American women in “flyover country.”

Trump’s average donation per woman donor is also much lower than his top female opponents. New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s average donation was $1,321, and Sen. Harris’s average was $935 per woman respectively, while Trump’s donors average out to $141.

The numbers were released by the Center for Responsive Politics which compiled the information using FEC data.

It’s not just because there is a glut of candidates over on the Democrat side, either. President Trump’s campaign has raised more money from women than all of the other Democratic candidates combined.

When including all of Trump’s fundraising beyond just the first quarter of 2020, 20,363 women have donated $7,592,966 to the president’s reelection campaign. That means overall, Trump has received more total contributions from women than all of the Democratic candidates combined, although Trump has had more time to fundraise than the Democratic candidates.

Source: Daily Caller

If you look at the percentage of donations divided by gender, President Trump is still looking very, very good. He’s got more female donors by percentage than Beto, Bernie, and Buttigieg. Actually, he’s only behind Gillibrand and Harris if you’re using that metric. By the way, it’s the most MAGA number that you could ever get.

Percentage of female donors by candidate (Q1 2019): 

Kirsten Gillibrand: 52.48%
Kamala Harris: 49.27%
Donald Trump: 45.45%
Amy Klobuchar: 45.20%
Beto O’Rourke: 44.86%
Julian Castro: 42.25%
Elizabeth Warren: 41.48%
John Delaney: 39.45%
Jay Inslee: 39.04%
Cory Booker: 38.30%
John Hickenlooper: 35.05%
Pete Buttigieg: 33.53%
Bernie Sanders: 33.29%
Tulsi Gabbard: 29.34%
Andrew Yang: 23.10%

Yes, dearies, POTUS 45 has 45.45% of his donations coming from women.

HIRONO: “Do you think it’s okay for a president to offer pardons to people who don’t testify against him, to threaten the family of someone who does? Is that okay?

BARR: “When did he offer a pardon to somebody?

HIRONO: “I think you know what I’m talking about. Please, Mr. Attorney General. Give us some credit for knowing what the hell’s going on around here.

GRAHAM: “Not really. To this line of questioning. Listen, you slandered this man!

HIRONO: “Mr. Chairman, I am done!

GRAHAM: “You slandered this man from top to bottom!” Graham continued. “If you want more of this, you’re not going to get it. If you want to ask some questions, you can.

HIRONO: “You certainly have your opinion. And I have mine.

Reporter: Biden Campaign Physically Blocking Press from Asking Questions

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

Why is Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden afraid of questions from the drive-by media?

After all the drive-by media types are the enablers of the Delusional DemocRats

A freelance reporter covering Joe Biden’s presidential campaign launch says the campaign has gotten physical in its attempts to block the press from questioning the former vice president.

Marcus DiPaola, a videographer who was on the trail with Biden Wednesday night in Iowa, used his Twitter account to voice complaints from multiple members of the press regarding poor treatment from campaign staff, which was reportedly blocking reporters from asking questions and taking photographs of anyone who objected.

“A reporter approached @JoeBiden to ask a question and a member of his staff told the reporter to leave, and when the reporter explained that they were just doing their job, the staffer said she was too,” DiPaola wrote. “The staffer then took a photo of the reporter.”

His initial tweet was followed by other similar anecdotes from the trail.

“A different reporter just told me that yesterday a staff member physically put their body between the reporter and @JoeBiden,” he wrote. “The reporter said they weren’t even that close and that there were several supporters between the reporter and Biden.”

“This second reporter tells me the staffer physically invaded their space to the point that the reporter could smell the staffer’s ponytail.”

“THIRD reporter just told me that a staff member physically put their body between @JoeBiden and the reporter, moments ago at this rally in Des Moines,” he wrote. “This third reporter just told me that the @JoeBiden staffer blocked his camera shot by putting up her hands.”

DiPaola said reporters were unwilling to put their names to complaints, fearing it would jeopardize their ability to cover the campaign effectively in the future.

Eventually, the treatment from the campaign impacted DiPaola himself as he was trying to capture video of Biden leaving the event.

The campaign attempted to “remove” the press from a public lot and told reporters they would not be allowed to ask questions, according to DiPaola. It then moved the location of Biden’s motorcade numerous times and sent Biden through a Jimmy Johns in its attempt to avoid questions, but was ultimately unsuccessful.

DiPaola was able to capture video, available on Getty Images, of Biden saying he thinks Attorney General William Barr should resign.

His full Twitter thread on actions taken by the Biden campaign to limit the press can be read below.

Pelosi BASHES Record Low Unemployment Rate, Then Calls for MORE Gov’t Programs

H/T Flag And Cross.

This proves just how Delusional DemocRats really are.

San Fran Nan is wrong we need less government involvement.

The force is weak with this one…

Due to the conservative policies of President Trump, unemployment in America just hit a 50-year low.

Unemployment now stands at 3.6 percent, which is undoubtedly a milestone for the Trump administration – and the United States, as a whole.

Women and black Americans, in particular, are thriving.

And yet, far-left Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) doesn’t see it that way – continuing to play politics at every turn.

Pelosi argues that the low unemployment rate is “promising,” but it doesn’t do enough.

WE NEED MORE GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION!

Here’s her official statement (bold mine)…

“The April jobs report numbers show some promising news, yet these gains hide the true weight of the economic uncertainty felt by millions of hard-working Americans. Unfortunately, the evidence shows that most of the economic gains continue to benefit those already well-off. We must do more to ensure that the economy is benefiting every family in every community, and that all Americans have the opportunity to move ahead in our economy.

Republicans’ shameful special interest agenda continues to undermine the health and financial security of middle class families across the country. This week, two years after House Republicans celebrated their vote to pass the outrageous Trumpcare bill, we still see the devastating impact of the GOP’s continuing health care sabotage. As the Administration continues its monstrous legal campaign to destroy pre-existing condition protections and every benefit provided by the Affordable Care Act, House Democrats are working on taking decisive action to lower health costs and prescription drug prices and safeguard access to quality, affordable health care for all.

To strengthen economic growth and fulfill Democrats’ promise to deliver progress For The People, we must advance a bold, historic infrastructure plan. Moving forward with urgency and innovative, thoughtful leadership, we will rebuild America in a green, modern and job-creating way, so we can pave the way for progress for all families, in all communities for generations to come.”

The answer is yes. Nancy and her ilk are too far gone.

Due to border patrol being overwhelmed with so many migrants making their way through Mexico and into American custody, Trump had an idea to place said migrants in “sanctuary cities.”

You’d think Democrats would love the idea, considering they are all about their “sanctuary cities.”

But nooooo.

Dems are actually angry that Trump even made the suggestion. Why?

Pelosi doesn’t “know anything” about what Trump said but decided to slam 45 as “unworthy of the presidency,” anyway.

From The Hill:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday took a swipe at a Trump White House proposal to retaliate against political enemies by releasing detained migrants in “sanctuary cities” in Democratic strongholds, calling the half-hatched plan “disrespectful” and “unworthy of the presidency.”

One of the congressional districts identified by the Trump administration was Pelosi’s liberal San Francisco district, according to The Washington Post.

Pelosi noted, “I don’t know anything about it, but again, it’s just another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges that we face as a county, as a people, to address who we are: a nation of immigrants.
