Texas State Democrats attack and threaten Republican who called ICE on illegal protesters

Today is the final day of the bitterly contentious 140-day legislative session of the Texas State House of Representatives.

A group of protesters crashed the chamber, chanting in Spanish and holding signs that say “I am illegal and here to stay”.

When Republican Rep. Matt Rinaldi called ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) on the protesters, Democrat Rep. Poncho Nevarez threatened Rinaldi’s life — that he would “get” Rinaldi on the way to the latter’s car — while another Democrat, Rep. Ramon Romero, physically assaulted Rinaldi.

In partisan language, Brandi Grissom and Robert T. Garrett report for Dallas News (note that Grissom and Garrett archly call the Republican representative “far right,” while the Democratic reps. are not “far left” but merely Democrats):

“[A] group of protesters crashed the chamber’s gallery Monday, chanting opposition to the so-called sanctuary cities ban. Legislators approved a bill this year that would force local governments to enforce federal immigration laws, what opponents call a show-me-your-papers law.

As they protested, Latino Reps. Ramon Romero and Cesar Blanco, both Democrats, waved to the noisy crowd. Far-right Republican Matt Rinaldi of Irving, a fervent supporter of the anti-immigration legislation, approached the Latino Democrats. They said Rinaldi told them he had called U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to report the protesters, who were largely Hispanic.

The Democrats were enraged. A shoving match ensued, and later lawmakers accused one another of making violent threats. Rinaldi said a Democrat threatened to ‘come get’ him. Rep. Justin Rodriguez, D-San Antonio, who was near the scrum, said he heard Rinaldi say, ‘I’ll put a bullet in his head,’ to another Democrat in the scrum.

‘He’s a broken person, and I hope his community realizes that,’ Rodriguez said during a press conference later.

Rep. Rinaldi issued this statement on Twitter:

That’s Democrats for ya — they go into a homicidal rage if you actually try to enforce U.S. laws.

President Trump signals to the Deplorables

A thread on the 4chan /pol/ chat forum of May 29, 2017 has a GIF of President Trump standing for a group portrait at the recent G-7 Summit in Sicily, Italy.

Compare Trump’s hand gesture at the G-7 to a tweet he posted on October 13, 2015 — of himself as Pepe the frog standing at a podium with the President of the United States Seal. It’s the same hand-touching-chin gesture.

Pepe the Frog is an anthropomorphic frog character from the comic series Boy’s Club by Matt Furie.

On 4chan, various illustrations of Pepe the frog have been used as reaction faces, including “feels good” Pepe, sad Pepe, angry Pepe, and smug Pepe — so much so that the Pepe meme is now associated with the Alt-Right.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, at a private fundraiser on September 9, Hillary Clinton called Trump supporters “a basket of deplorables”. The next day, Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., posted on Instagram a photoshop of The Expendables movie poster, featuring Donald Trump leading a group of prominent conservatives and a Trump-Pepe, with the title “The Deplorables” (instead of The Expendables).

That’s what President Trump was doing with his left hand in the G-7 group photo-op — signaling that he’s one of the Deplorables with the “smug Pepe” hand gesture.

Just wait till the MSM figure it out.

Their heads will explode. LOL

War: U.S. deploys 3rd carrier group to North Korea; Russia will nuke if US or NATO enters Crimea

On the eve of Memorial Day, the world stands at the precipice of war.

(1) North Korea

As the psychopathic and likely psychotic regime of Kim Jong-un continues its saber-rattling, President Trump is standing firm by sending a third aircraft carrier group to the western Pacific.

Kenji Minemura reports for Japan’s Asahi Shimbun that on May 26, 2017, “sources close the U.S. military” said the U.S. Navy has decided to deploy a third carrier-led strike force — the USS Nimitz, one of the world’s largest warships — to the western Pacific to increase pressure on North Korea to rein in its nuclear and missile tests amid mounting concern that it will soon acquire the capability to launch intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).

Vincent Stewart, director of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, has said that Pyongyang will ultimately succeed in acquiring the technology to equip its ICBMs with nuclear warheads and threaten the U.S. mainland.

It is rare for the U.S. Navy to deploy three aircraft carriers to the same region at the same time. The deployment of Nimitz to join the USS Carl Vinson and USS Ronald Reagan means that three of the U.S. Navy’s 11 aircraft carriers will be deployed in the western Pacific.

The Carl Vinson strike group, which is also part of the Third Fleet, has been deployed to the Sea of Japan since late April. The Ronald Reagan strike group, which belongs to the Seventh Fleet based in Yokosuka, Japan, and is in charge of the western Pacific, left its homeport on April 16. It is scheduled to carry out a joint drill with the Carl Vinson strike group, which may be joined by the Nimitz.

The Nimitz strike group, which is part of the U.S. Third Fleet, was originally scheduled to be deployed to the Middle East region, departing from its homeport, Naval Base Kitsap in Washington State, on June 1. Instead, the U.S. Navy decided to deploy the nuclear-powered Nimitz to the western Pacific for six months to deal with this latest crisis involving North Korea.

The deployment of the Nimitz also sends a signal to China to continue cooperating with the United States on this issue. President Donald Trump has said that the U.S. will independently take action against North Korea if China does not cooperate.

(2) Russia

Meanwhile, a member of Russia’s parliament told an international gathering of government security officials today that Russia would be forced to use nuclear weapons if U.S. or NATO forces entered eastern Ukraine, i.e., Crimea.

Patrick Tucker reports for Defense One, May 28, 2017, that Russian parliamentarian Vyacheslav Alekseyevich Nikonov told attendees at the GLOBSEC 2017 forum in Bratislava, Slovakia: “On the issue of NATO expansion on our borders, at some point I heard from the Russian military — and I think they are right — if U.S. forces, NATO forces, are, were, in the Crimea, in eastern Ukraine, Russia is undefendable militarily in case of conflict without using nuclear weapons in the early stage of the conflict.”

While the Soviet Union maintained a policy against the first use of nukes, Putin’s government turned away from that strict prohibition in 2000 with the signing of a new military doctrine that allows for the limited use of nuclear weapons “in response to large-scale aggression utilizing conventional weapons in situations critical to the national security of the Russian Federation.”

But Amy Wolf, a nuclear weapons specialist with the Congressional Research Service, points out that “This is not new, and has been a part of Russian military doctrine for years,” and that although Russia could resort to the use of nuclear weapons first, “There is little indication that Russia plans to use nuclear weapons at the outset of a conflict, before it has engaged with conventional weapons”.

So why is the Russian government telegraphing its willingness to go nuclear in Ukraine/Crimea? In a word, NATO.

Russia has watched with concern as NATO has added a dozen eastern members that used to be under Moscow’s sway. Nikonov said, “For us, [NATO] is a military alliance spanning three-quarters of the global defense money, now planning to expand that figure.”

In the two years since Russia annexed Crimea, NATO’s Baltic members have doubled their defense budgets. In 2018, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia are projected to spend nearly $670 million, up from $210 million in 2014. Craig Caffrey, principal analyst at IHS Jane’s, remarked last October: “This growth is faster than any other region globally. In 2005, the region’s total defense budget was $930 million. By 2020, the region’s defense budget will be $2.1 billion.”

NATO has been expanding its troop presence in Eastern Europe as well. In April 2016, during the Warsaw summit, NATO agreed to increase the size of the NATO force deployed to Baltics to enhance its forward presence. In January 2017, the U.S. deployed some 4,000 troops to Poland. The following month, Germany, announced that it will send some 1,000 troops to  Lithuania.

Mark Zuckerberg joins Silicon Valley bigwigs in calling for government to give everybody free money

zuckerberg

Zuckerberg: Doesn’t understand how failure can drive one to succeed.

You are personally responsible for finding your own meaningful role, not the government. But that self-sufficiency mentality never crosses the mind of a proggie.

From Yahoo: CEO Mark Zuckerberg called on the need to consider universal basic income for Americans during his Harvard Commencement Speech.

Zuckerberg’s comments reflect those of other Silicon Valley bigwigs, including Sam Altman, the president of venture capital firm Y Combinator.

Every generation expands its definition of equality. Now it’s time for our generation to define a new social contract,” Zuckerberg said during his speech. “We should have a society that measures progress not by economic metrics like GDP but by how many of us have a role we find meaningful. We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas.

Zuckerberg said that, because he knew he had a safety net if projects like Facebook had failed, he was confident enough to continue on without fear of failing. Others, he said, such as children who need to support households instead of poking away on computers learning how to code, don’t have the foundation Zuckerberg had. Universal basic income would provide that sort of cushion, Zuckerberg argued.

Altman’s view is similar. A year ago, Altman said he thinkseveryone should have enough money to meet their basic needs—no matter what, especially if there are enough resources to make it possible. We don’t yet know how it should look or how to pay for it, but basic income seems a promising way to do this.” Altman believes basic income will be possible as technological advancements “generate an abundance of resources” that help decrease the cost of living.

Pedogate: President of NY Young Democrats/de Blasio staffer arrested for child porn as young as 6 mos.

The New York Post reports that Jacob Schwartz, 29, an employee of NY mayor de Blasio’s administration, was busted for child porn — for downloading and keeping 3,000 images and 89 videos on a laptop, including those of “young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct…on an adult male,” court papers say.

One has to be really, really depraved to see a 6-month-old baby as “sexy”.

The target of an investigation since March, Schwartz surrendered to NYPD computer-crimes investigators in Manhattan’s 13th Precinct on Thursday morning, April 25, 2017. He was charged with promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing a sexual performance by a child under 16, both felonies, and released on $7,500 bail.

Schwartz is employed as a $66,360-a-year computer programmer analyst in New York City’s Department of Design and Construction. Schwartz is also president of the Manhattan Young Democrats and the downstate region vice president of the New York State Young Democrats. A photo posted last year on Twitter shows him with Robby Mook, then the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign.

Schwartz’s father is a prominent Democratic insider — labor lawyer Arthur Schwartz, who was New York counsel to Bernie Sanders’ failed presidential campaign. Calling his son’s case “a personal tragedy,” Arthur said: “I understand these are serious charges. He’s already in therapy for this.”

Arthur Schwartz had his own brush with the law in 2015, when he was busted for removing hidden surveillance cameras trained on the front door of a $700-a-month, rent-control apartment occupied by a 93-year-old client who was battling her landlord. Prosecutors agreed to drop felony grand larceny charges in exchange for Arthur paying $720 in restitution.

Jeremy Nolt of Alt Wave Media notes that, in the wake of Jacob Schwartz’s arrest, Democrat leaders are rushing to conceal their ties to the pedophile:

  • ​Mayor De Blasio ignored questions about the case at a Friday news conference.
  • Robby Mook and other Democrats deleted the picture of Schwartz and Mook from their Twitter accounts, but neither Mook nor Hillary Clinton have disavowed or spoken out against Schwartz’s child porn.
  • The media have been unusually quiet as well. Nor have the media asked Hillary, de Blasio, or Mook to disavow Schwartz, in contrast to their repeated demands that then candidate Donald Trump disavow David Duke even though Trump had no connections with Duke and had never even met him.

In a tweet, Mike Cernovich points out that the MSM’s silence on Jacob Schwartz could have something to do with Schwartz having been a guest on CNN in December 2016, blaming Hillary’s loss on “racism” and Russia.

CNN attacks GOP Congressman for calling for a federal investigation of Seth Rich’s murder

On May 24, 2017, speaking on CNN, Congressman Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) refuted the charge that the Russian government had interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help Trump’s campaign.

Farenthold drew attention instead to Seth Rich, a 27-year-old Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer, as the likely whistleblower who leaked thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks. In the early morning hours of Sunday, July 10, 2016, Rich was shot in the residential Columbia Heights section of Washington, DC. Still alive and conscious when responding police arrived at the crime scene, Rich was declared dead after he was brought to a local hospital.

See:

Farenthold told CNN:

“My fear is our constant focusing on the Russians is deflecting away for some other things that we need to be investigating. There’s still some question as to whether the intrusion of the DNC server was an insider job or whether or not it was the Russians.”

For calling for an investigation into the murder of a DNC staffer which remains unsolved more than 10 months later, Farenthold was pounced on and cut off by CNN news anchor John Berman.

As recounted by Alicia Powe for WND:

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, the ‘insider job’ – what are you referring to here?” asked CNN’s John Berman.

“There’s stuff circulating on the Internet. My question is, why …” the congressman continued, but he was again cut off by Berman.

“What’s circulating on the Internet that you think is worthy of a congressional investigation? Because the D.C. police are investigating this, and so far they haven’t said there’s anything there” to suggest any DNC-link to Rich’s murder, Berman demanded.

The fourth-term congressman noted that the DNC denied the FBI’s “multiple requests” to examine the hacked computers. Instead, the DNC hired a third party organization, CrowdStrike, to perform an analysis.

“We’re relying only on the report of somebody that the DNC contracted to examine their computer rather than having federal officials [examine them],” Farenthold told CNN. “To me, we need to let the feds look at it.” […]

One private investigator told WND he has reason to believe the Metropolitan Police Department is hiding key evidence from the public and acting in collusion with the Washington, D.C., mayor to make the investigation go away. Another private investigator probing the case claimed former DNC interim chairwoman Donna Brazile contacted police and Rich’s family, demanding to know why the detective was “snooping” into Rich’s death.

Hey, CNN and John Berman.

Your prickly defensiveness is most noteworthy. What are you afraid a federal investigation would uncover? The truth?

If you like American Idol, here’s a good reason not to watch the reboot season: libtard Katy Perry

katy perry and hillary clinton

“Game-changers” Clinton and Perry

Katy Perry is an unabashed proggie. She campaigned for Hillary Clinton and even designed a pair of shoes in her honor.

Katy is also ignorant about what drives ISIS and their terrorism. After the Manchester suicide bombing Katy said, I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other. No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.

Now the womyn will be on American TV and making tons of money for her “professional” input. I won’t be watching this show.

From Yahoo (from Glamour magazine): Earlier this week, news broke that Katy Perry is getting paid $25 million to be a judge on ABC’s American Idol reboot. That’s a lot of money, yes, but…appropriate. Perry is one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, full stop. She’s sold millions of records, is an incredible performer, and knows a thing or two about longevity in the fickle music industry. The “Chained to the Rhythm” singer is an amazing (and game-changing) recruit for American Idol, so it’s great that she’s getting paiiiid.

But not everyone agrees with this. Enough people have criticized Perry’s American Idol salary that 103.5 KTU radio host Carolina Bermudez felt the need to ask her about it in a recent interview. “I’m sure that you hear in the news people talking about you and the whole American Idol situation that’s come out,” Bermudez said, according to E! Online. “Does that ever irk you that people are talking about how much money you make or how much they paid you to be on that show, or are you like ‘Yup, I deserve every last penny’?”

Perry’s response was, naturally, spot on. “I’m really proud that, as a woman, I got paid,” she said. “And you know why? I got paid more than, like, pretty much any guy that’s been on that show. And, by the way, I love men. So I’m a paid woman, and I’m ready for a beautiful man.

She has every right to be proud, too. We still live in a world where women are perceived negatively if they take ownership of their accomplishments—financial or otherwise. And Perry isn’t the first female celebrity to face this kind of backlash. Lena Dunham revealed at the 2015 Hollywood Reporter actress roundtable that people overtly criticized how much she was paid for her first book. “When it was leaked how much I was getting for my book, there were 39,000 articles asking, ‘Is she worth it?'” she said. “Then it came out what Aziz Ansari was making on his book. No one says a damn word.”

This type of female salary shaming is a huge reason why the gender wage gap exists. Women are socially programmed to simply accept the first offer thrown their way. Thankfully, our culture is evolving and more women are fighting for their worth. There’s nothing wrong or showboat-y about being properly compensated or celebrating it.
