Gallup Poll shows Democrats’ attack on Trump-Russia isn’t working: Americans cite illegal immigration as top problem

In Gallup’s most recent poll on what Americans see as the most important problem facing the nation, Russia doesn’t even show up as a problem, not just for Republicans, but also for Democrats.

That’s how phony the hue-and-cry about Trump and Putin by Demonrats and their media accomplices is.

Even Democrats don’t care.

Gallup Poll reports, July 18, 2018, that immigration was identified as the top problem by all Americans, Republicans, Independents, as well as Democrats:

  • 22% of all Americans, up from 14% in June: 22% is the highest percentage naming that issue in Gallup’s history of asking the “most important problem” question.
  • 35% of Republicans, up from 21% in June.
  • 17% of independents.
  • 18% of Democrats.

Americans, of whatever political party, have good reason to think illegal “immigration” as the number one problem of this country. See:

Leftist group throws feces at pro-Trump immigration policy coffee shop

Paul Bois reports for The Daily Wire, July 19, 2018, that masked protesters hurled a barrage of feces at the Asher Caffé & Lounge coffee shop in Los Angeles’ Boyle Heights neighborhood because of the owner’s support of President Trump’s immigration policies.

The protestors succeeded in shutting down Asher Caffé’s grand opening.

Asher Caffe

Though traditionally Jewish, the neighborhood of Boyle Heights has since become predominantly Latino. Thirty people from the Defend Boyle Heights (DBH) group attended the protest. In a Facebook post, DBH referred to the coffee shop’s owner, Asher Shalom, as “an anti-immigrant trump loving gentryfier”:

“This Gentry business is trying to creep in without folks noticing that their owner is an anti-immigrant Trump loving gentryfier. If he hates immigrants so much, he can stay the f**k out of our hood! In #BoyleHeights we love and defend immigrants! Show up bring signs and show these fuckers how we stand up for our immigrant families and neighbors!”

Shalom also owns another business, Asher Fabrics Concept. What triggered the feces-flinging protest was Asher Fabrics Concept retweeting one of Trump’s messages about his proposed travel ban from hostile counties — what leftists wrongfully refer to as a “Muslim ban.”

Shalom told CBS local he could not understand what immigration has to do with his business serving coffee: “So what’s the connection? This is what I don’t understand. I’m confused — the connection between Donald Trump and good coffee.”

Born in Israel, Shalom is an immigrant who came to America 30 years ago and earned his citizenship legally. His business employs dozens of people, including immigrants. He has received two proclamations from L.A. City Councilman Jose Huizar and County Supervisor Hilda Solis for his contributions to the city.

Shalom’s son, David, said the protesters even harassed customers: “They really intensely protested and accosted all the visitors that came to our grand opening event.”

Shalom’s daughter, Yael, said the mob began throwing feces on the coffee shop’s windows: “It was very scary. There was a lot of people protesting outside wearing masks […] and they threw a significant amount of feces at our windows.”

The Daily Wire obtained this exclusive photograph from Asher Caffé, which confirms the feces-throwing did take place:

CBS local reports that the DBH group used “similarly aggressive tactics against another coffee shop in the area last year and against an art gallery nearby that eventually shuttered.”

Sanctuary California: Illegal alien identified as San Francisco’s “ride-share rapist”

Illegal Vilchez Lazo: Free to roam and rape in sanctuary California/SFPD photo

From Fox News: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Monday blasted San Francisco over its sanctuary policy that “shields criminal aliens who prey on the community” by pointing to an illegal immigrant alien charged in connection to the rapes of four women, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Orlando Vilchez Lazo, 36, is a citizen of Peru and “present in the U.S.,” the report said. He was arrested last week after police said they came across a man who fit the description of the assailant. Police said they took a DNA sample and found a link to four rapes.

Vilchez Lazo has been dubbed the “ride-share rapist,” because he would allegedly drive his car around clubs in the city and pose as a driver. The New York Times, citing authorities, reported that he even had a sticker on his car to indicate he was working for a company.

Vilchez Lazo allegedly committed at least four rapes, one in 2013 and three this year, with the most recent attack in June. Commander Greg McEachren says he often waited outside bars late at night, then drove to other locations.

He reportedly worked for Lyft at the time, but the company told the paper that there is no indication that the alleged attacks occurred while he was working for them. A spokeswoman said he was “deactivated” after word of the allegations.

ICE officials reportedly “lodged a detainer” for Lazo but noted in a statement that the city’s jail “does not honor” these detainers or “notify ICE about the impending release of aliens in custody.”

The Trump administration says sanctuary jurisdictions allow dangerous criminals back on the street. San Francisco and other so-called sanctuary cities say turning local police into immigration officers erodes the trust needed to get people to report crime.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Vilchez Lazo was being held at the San Francisco Jail on $4.2 million bail. It could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.

Vilchez Lazo faces life in prison if convicted.

America’s had enough! Owner of Portland art gallery takes down ‘behead Trump’ image after receiving threats

This morning, our DCG published a post on an art gallery in Portland, Oregon, One Grand Gallery, displaying an image in its window of President Trump being decapitated and the words “Fuck Trump”.

Jordan Chan-Mendez is the founder and co-owner of One Grand Gallery, located at 1000 E. Burnside St., Portland, OR 97214 (Google Map here).

Since Portland is a Leftist city, Chan-Mendez probably thought he would have the enthusiastic support of Portlanders.

Wrong!

Even Portland has a limit.

Fox 12 Oregon reports that the art gallery has scraped the “behead Trump” image off its window after “continuous threats” and a request from the gallery’s landlord.

The man who identified himself as One Grand Gallery’s founder, refused to give his name and hid his face from the FOX 12 camera crew. The man also declined to explain why the gallery put the image up in a window that faces a public street and sidewalk.

Fox 12 reporter Tyler Dumont: “But, I mean, you felt strong enough to put this out here?”

Gallery Founder: “Yeah, but people that are responding, are responding with such anger and violence. People want the gallery to go up in flames with my family.”

The gallery isn’t the only business to receive threats. A worker at an unaffiliated automotive shop, Total Performance Converters, located one floor above the art gallery said the phone has been ringing off the hook all morning, after pictures of the “behead Trump” image went viral on social media. Shop owner Dane Johnson said he’s received phone calls from “all over the United States”:

“It’s been a crazy, crazy morning. I’ve had threats, I’ve had rocks thrown through the window. I’ve had threats that we’re never going to do business with you again. I’ve also had threats on my life, you know, ‘we’re going to come and kill you’.”

Although the “behead Trump” image has been scraped off the gallery’s window, the gallery still displays other hate-Trump “art work,” such as these two:

Fox 12 says the founder of One Grand Gallery refused to give his name and concealed his face from the camera. Here’s the information on One Grand Gallery’s founder and co-owner:

Name: Jordan Chan-Mendez, age 40.
Address: 1210 Se Gideon St., Portland, OR 97202
Cell phone: (503) 901-3916
Email: jordanchanmendez@hotmail.com; jordan@515am.com
LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/chanmendez/

Jordan Chan-Mendez is also a co-founder of Two Dogs in a Boat, a hotdog stand business at 1226 SE Gideon St, Portland, OR 97202, with 17 employees and an estimated annual revenue of $334,274.

In 2006, Chan-Mendez modeled on the runway a white suit by Christopher Bevans in a fashion show to support a nonprofit, the Boost Foundation.

Jordan Chan-Mendez has a criminal record that includes failure to register a vehicle, failure to notify change of name or address, several violations of speed limit, unlawful or unsignaled turns, illegal alteration or display of a registration plate, failure to carry proof of compliance, failure to obey traffic control device, and driving while suspended.

Paging Secret Service: One Grand Gallery in Oregon displays “artwork” of President Trump being beheaded

one grand gallery artwork

This is why many folks are choosing to #WalkAway from the demorat party.

The gallery displayed this image in their store window.

From the gallery’s Facebook post (which was deleted several hours later):

“The same people offended over a “death threat” are the same people upholding death threats & violence. Irony.”

One Grand Gallery is located in Portland, Oregon. About the gallery, from their web site:

“Founded in 2012 by Jordan Chan-Mendez, One Grand Gallery promotes artwork meeting at the intersection of fine art and graphic design. Featuring established artists as well as emerging talent, One Grand Gallery’s program maintains a conceptual quality relevant to the central discussion of urban and contemporary artwork. Realized by means of solo and group shows, art fairs, community partnerships and collaborations with varied creative agencies, One Grand Gallery aims to serve as a source of creative instigation.”

It seems to me that the death threats and violence are coming from your side, Mr. Chan-Mendez. See the following:

ICE arrests 37 illegal aliens in Middlesex, NJ who were released by local jail after they ignored detainer requests

deport t-shirt

Local sanctuary-loving progressives are not honoring ICE detainers and are releasing criminals back into their communities. Wait until you read the details regarding some of the crimes these illegal aliens committed and how the local county did not comply with ICE detainer requests. It will make your blood boil.

This is why we need ICE.

Press release from ICE Enforcement and Removal, dated 7/16/2018:

NEWARK, N.J. — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Newark Field Office arrested 37 individuals during a five-day operation that concluded Friday, as part of the agency’s ongoing public safety efforts. The operation targeted criminal aliens who were previously incarcerated at the Middlesex County Jail (MCJ), and who were subsequently released to the community by MCJ, without honoring the ICE detainer or advising ICE of their release. The operation also targeted other criminal aliens residing in Middlesex County.

ICE is focused on removing public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws, including those who illegally re-entered the country after being removed, and immigration fugitives ordered removed by federal immigration judges.

For the first two quarters of Fiscal Year 2018, ICE arrests comprise over 66 percent convicted criminals. Of the remaining individuals not convicted of a crime, approximately 23 percent have either been charged with a crime, are immigration fugitives, or have been removed from the United States and illegally re-entered, reflecting the agency’s continued prioritization of its limited enforcement resources on aliens who pose threats to national security, public safety and border security.
